|Bush / Clinton Death List intro: The editors and staff at NewsFollowUp.com are finally realizing that we are uncovering one of the most incredible political stories of modern history. It best can be described by getting out the idea of 'limited hangout' and applying it to the past 25 years of Bush / Reagan / Clinton administrations. Bill and Hillary Clinton are still in the process of hoodwinking the world including Democrats, Republicans and Progressives. The Clinton impeachment was just a smokescreen to launch the neo-con PNAC agenda 'under the radar'. The Clinton's are / were an integral part of the operation. Osama bin Laden is their creation. They (and Israel) piggy-backed their operation on top of his 9/11 mission; it all went very smoothly. The Clinton healthcare initiative, OJ Simpson trial, Iraq sanctions, and countless other media tricks were all necessary parts of the decades-long run-up to the invasion of Iraq. Countless duped Republicans like Falwell, Scaife, maybe even Kenneth Star fell into the trap and were unwitting coconspirators. The lists of names on this page are just a few of the people who got in the way and had to be 'taken care of'....all very fascinating and tragic.|

Vincent Foster and from a blogger, wallpaper_colorist: "believe that if Vince Foster committed suicide, it would have been because he did in fact know more about the decorating $$ spent in Pittsfield, Massachusetts where Hillary Clinton had quietly set up a small company called Berkshire Hand-Screened Wallpapers to print over $200,000 worth of the Victorian designs she favored. The money in Pittsfield ran through the same channels that handled the money for the Lenox 7 trials some years before, when some young relatives of prominent Democrat families in Massachusetts got into a brawl and a car containing two other young relatives ended up in a lake with them drowned."
Charles Ruff Charles Spiritually Smart New York Times: became best known to the public for his skillful defense of Mr. Clinton during the impeachment trial in the well of the Senate in January 1999. ... Mr. Ruff had a wide-ranging legal career in which he defended other public figures, including Charles S. Robb, when he was the governor of Virginia, and Senator John Glenn, an Ohio Democrat. ... As a partner in the Washington firm of Covington & Burling, Mr. Ruff represented Mr. Robb in an inquiry of whether he had had a role in secretly taping a fellow Democrat and political rival, L. Douglas Wilder, who succeeded him as governor. ... Mr. Ruff was credited with foiling prosecutors' efforts to indict Mr. Robb. Mr. Robb was later elected to the Senate and was defeated this month in his quest for a third term. ... Mr. Ruff represented Mr. Glenn in the so-called Keating Five investigation, in which Mr. Glenn and four other lawmakers were brought before the Senate Ethics Committee in 1991 and questioned about having done favors for Charles F. Keating, a banker and political donor. In the end, the committee merely admonished Senator Glenn, who was re-elected in 1992 and retired in 1998. Wikipedia
Retired Persons When Jim McDougal was finally taken out of
solitary, instead of attempting to defibrillate his heart with equipment
on hand at the facility, he was driven over to John Peter Smith Hospital.
Not the closest hospital to the Fort Worth Federal Medical Center, John
Peter Smith hospital is a public hospital, where (in the words of one
local) ,"They let interns practice on deadbeats." ... The single
most damning fact to come out of the McDougal death was his injection with
Lasix, a diuretic, to force his giving of a urine sample for drug testing,
even though McDougal was not a known drug user. Lasix is contra-indicated
in cases of heart disease and can cause excessive diuresis, blood volume
reduction, circulatory collapse and vascular thrombosis or blood clots. If
a matching potassium supplement is not administered at the same time,
Lasix can kill. ... McDougal may have been taking the heart medication
Digitalin, which cannot be combined with Lasix.

Michael Galster Tainted-blood sleuth firebombed Intimidation campaign suspected as Arkansas clinic razed, Montreal office ransacked The controversial story involving tainted plasma from Arkansas prisoners that was shipped to Canada in the 1980s while Bill Clinton was state governor has taken a mysterious and chilling new turn. Two crimes that occurred within hours of each other Tuesday night, hundreds of kilometres apart, have raised questions about whether someone is trying to intimidate or silence those who are asking questions about the prison-blood fiasco. In Pine Bluff, Arkansas, someone firebombed a prosthetics clinic owned by Michael Galster, who has been pushing hard for a U.S. government investigation. The clinic was burned to its shell and fire officials, who found a gas container in Mr. Galster's attic -- where he kept his documents -- say they're "90-per-cent sure" the fire was arson. In Montreal, someone broke into the offices of the Quebec chapter of the Canadian Hemophilia Society, which recently unearthed documents that showed Finance Minister Paul Martin was a board member of the corporation that owned Connaught Laboratories, the company that fractionated and distributed the Arkansas prison plasma in Canada. Hemophilia Society officials say thieves stole a computer and three telephones. They also stole documents from a box labeled "Hepatitis C, Krever Commission, Reform of the blood system, HIV-AIDS."

Maria DiBiase WMR has learned from UN sources that the 19th Floor from which UN employee Maria DiBiase plunged to her death in the early morning of February 17, houses the Department of Peace-keeping Operations/Field Administration and Logistics Division (DPKO/FALD). The offices also house the code machines used for the encrypted fax machines used for DPKO activities in addition to a spare set of code machines used for DPKO rapid response teams. DiBiase, an Austrian national, was a computer specialist for the UN and a former Conference Services staff member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna, Austria. WMR has learned that the UN Special Commission (UNSCOM) maintained in a special UN's computer database all the files on Sadaam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction program retrieved from compact disks provided to UNSCOM by Saddam's government prior to the U.S. invasion of Iraq. The database is said to include all the black market nuclear suppliers involved in providing materials to Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, and Libya via Turkey and the A Q Khan smuggling network. The list reportedly includes front companies in Switzerland linked to Marc Rich, the American fugitive pardoned by President Clinton, and Dick Cheney. DiBiase is said to have arrived at work Sunday morning to finish a project that was due on Monday morning. WMR has been told that there may have been a "black bag" operation taking place on the 19th floor at the same time DiBiase arrived at work.
