Limited Hangout- then, now and into the future...
A limited hangout, or partial hangout, is a public relations or propaganda technique that involves the release of previously hidden information in order to prevent a greater exposure of more important details. It takes the form of deception, misdirection, or coverup often associated with intelligence agencies involving a release or "mea culpa" type of confession of only part of a set of previously hidden sensitive information, that establishes credibility for the one releasing the information who by the very act of confession appears to be "coming clean" and acting with integrity; but in actuality, by withholding key facts, is protecting a deeper operation and those who could be exposed if the whole truth came out. In effect, if an array of offenses or misdeeds is suspected, this confession admits to a lesser offense while covering up the greater ones.

In the mid 90's, black ops whistelblower CHIP TATUM talked about the cocaine smuggling operation that lurked beneath the Iran-Contra scandal.

Gary Webb wrote an award-winning book about it: Dark Alliance, which eventually prompted to the CIA to make significant disclosures about its role w/ the contras and related drug operations. The Kerry Commission also verfied much of what Webb concluded.

In 1994 Terry Reed (former CIA contract asset) wrote his book COMPROMISED, corroborating the context of what Tatum and Webb had also reported.

Could FAST & FURIOUS be the latter-day version of IRAN-CONTRA? It certainly has many of the same earmakrings.

There is a thread on GLP titled "CHIP TATUM" that contains current references & links to TATUM and discusses F&F.

TATUM was brought up on RICO charges and then TREASON charges; the TREASON charges suddenly were dropped when he threatened to make more disclosures from his black ops assignments. He cut a deal with the government and was released after serving a small sentence. He was recently arrested for violating the terms of his deal.

TERRY REED disappeared into the fog after making his points and defending himself against a formidable government lawsuit.

We all know the unfortunate fate of GARY WEBB.
