23 – Barry Seal
Barry Seal was a drug-running TWA pilot out of Mena, Arkansas. The scuttlebutt was that car mechanic Johnny Lawhorn Jr. found a check made out to Bill Clinton in the trunk of Seal’s car.
Barry Seal was a danger-loving pilot and the best known cocaine smuggler of the 1980’s. He was murdered in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in 1986, by three men with machine guns and who were later arrested and convicted. They were Colombians and authorities say they were connected with the Medellin drug cartel.
The Attorney General of Louisiana told U.S. Attorney General Ed Meese in 1986 that Seal smuggled $3 to $5 billion worth of drugs into the U.S.
In 1981, Seal began running his smuggling operation out of a highly guarded and, for a while, secret airport in Mena, Arkansas.
There have been questions of whether Bill Clinton, who was governor of Arkansas at the time, may have looked the other way if he knew about the drug smuggling operation, but there has not been proof of that.
I have received first hand information from friends of Barry Seal, and the name that keeps popping up as a key to what happened is Federal Judge Frank Polozola.
I will augment this entry as I receive more information from my sources.
