According to reports from the FBI, DEA, Customs, and the Arkansas State Police, money and drugs were indeed being dropped from low-flying air craft at night. These drops were part of a major drug smuggling operation headquartered at the airport in Mena, Arkansas.
In 1982, cocaine trafficker, Barry Seal, had moved his multi-million dollar cocaine smuggling operation from Louisiana to Arkansas and was permitted by government officials to continue his activities without interference. Arkansas State Police Investigator Russell Welch and IRS Federal Agent Bill Duncan accumulated more than 20,000 pages of documents detailing the drug trafficking and money laundering activities at Mena.
"Any airplanes, the air craft, that Barry
Seal had there at Rich Mountain Aviation were . . . there was only one
purpose for them. There was only one use for that type of air craft and
that was to smuggle cocaine. They had special cargo doors installed in
the side, without FAA permission, so that these doors could be opened in
flight. They'd pull in, slide back, and cocaine could be dropped out the
side in flight."
"Bill Duncan and I interviewed Barry Seal less than two months before he was killed, and he was served with a subpoena at that time. He was under subpoena to come to Arkansas and testify for the grand jury here when he was killed."
Twenty other witnesses were scheduled to testify, but only three were allowed to appear before the federal grand jury. Two of those witnesses were barred from presenting any evidence. As expected, the grand jury was shut down, and no indictments were issued. The drug smuggling activities continued after Seal's death. To date, a total of nine separate state and federal investigations into Mena have been shut down.
Unlike other videos about our government, Obstruction of Justice is not based on unsubstantiated accusations and innuendoes. Obstruction is a carefully documented story of the "train deaths," which has a powerful impact on everyone who sees it. Jean Duffey and Linda Ives negotiated control of the contents of Obstruction of Justice, which tells this amazing story, and they have vowed to raise enough money through video sales to file a civil law suit. This is clearly the only justice the families of Kevin and Don will ever see.
