- Kelly Duda, an Arkansas native, should blow the lid off
Clinton's dirty past with his new film. It should also make the former
President's own blood boil, even more than being caught having sex in the
- By Greg Szymanski
- Ever since Bill Clinton left the White House, he has
been "buddy-buddy" with Daddy Bush, the pair appearing at political
rallies and on television like the "Bobbsey Twins."
- It's obvious now Clinton is just another neo-con snake
in the grass, his so-called "Bridge in the 21st
- Century" Presidency used as a diversion but nonetheless
used to simply advance the New World Order's horrific agenda.
- Recently, Washington D.C. journalist, Jim Tucker, who
has written extensively about the New World Order and its ruling group
called The Bilderburg's for over two decades, told the Arctic Beacon Clinton
was a guest at a secret Bilderburg meeting the year before being elected,
apparently getting his marching orders and final stamp of approval from
the worldwide financiers who pull the Washington political strings.
- Looking back, Clinton turned out to be an integral part
of the shadow government's game plan, now forging full-steam ahead after
- While Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz and Rove are
now grabbing headlines, the truth is finally starting to surface about
Clinton's two-faced Presidency
- One of Clinton's first acts as President in 1993 was
to terminate, for no apparent good reason, a Justice Department investigation
into 'Iraq Gate' and "Daddy Bush's" alleged involvement in selling
WMD to Iraq.
- Remember a book written in 1991 by Deborah Mathis, an
obsessive Arkansas journalist who was one of the lone wolves, allegedly
pinning Clinton with complicity to Latin American cocaine transports on
U.S. military planes in isolated regions of northwest Arkansas.
- Although most journalist's were enamored by the Clinton's
charisma, Mathis stuck to her guns, writing the book which also documented
the mysterious deaths of two teen-agers believed to stumble across an Arkansas
- But Mathis' allegation and persistence concerning Clinton's
dirty past was little match for the supportive nature of most of the media,
many of whom couldn't see past their noses when it came to Clinton's dirty
past as Arkansas Governor.
- And now surfacing in a long overdue documentary seven
years in the making, the real truth about the Clinton's disgusting past
should finally blow the lid off what remains of his clean image and probably
make his Arkansas blood boil like never before.
- The documentary called "Factor 8: The Arkansas Prison
Blood Scandal," written and produced by Arkansas native Kelly Duda,
made it's debut two weeks ago at the prestigious American Film Festival
- Duda's documentary deals with fresh evidence about the
Arkansas prison blood scandal where officials knowingly sold AIDS tainted
blood for a huge profit, then deliberately shipped to thousands in Europe
and Canada who unknowingly contracted AIDS and hepatitis.
- Duda's documentary shows how senior officials in the
Arkansas prison system paid inmates to donate AIDS tainted blood while
at the same time altering prisoner medical records to make it look like
they were not carrying the deadly virus.
- The filmmaker said he made an attempt to tie Clinton
to the prison blood racket, but was thwarted and stopped every step of
the way when he tried to unseal old Arkansas state records.
- "When I went looking for Clinton's governor papers
relevant to the blood investigation, I was told that 4,000 boxes had been
hidden away. In private storage and couldn't be located," said Duda
in a recent interview prior to the film festival release.
- "When I went to the Arkansas State Health Department
to request records regarding disease rates at the prison and anything about
the plasma program, I was stonewalled.
- "I actually had to sue the state agency just to
get access to its files that by law are supposed to be a matter of public
record. When I went to the Arkansas State Police Headquarters, key documents
had disappeared. When complete strangers showed up out of the blue asking
me what I was doing and with whom did I work for, I had to ask myself,
'What's going on here?'"
- Duda was first made aware of Clinton's involvement in
the scandal based on various news reports in the early 90's, reporting
Clinton while governor of Arkansas in the 1980s being at the center of
the AIDS tainted blood scandal.
- While governor, he awarded a contract to Health Management
Associates, a company involved in the scandal that provided medical care
to state prisoners. News reports also uncovered the president of the company
was a long-time Clinton friend and confidant, later appointed to a cushy
political position on the Arkansas Industrial Development Commission and
a member of his 1990 statewide election team.
- Clinton was then tied to knowing about the blood scandal
when Michael Galster, who treated Arkansas inmates, said he had personal
knowledge of Health Management official's knowingly selling tainted blood
for profit to a number of foreign countries, as well as personal knowledge
that Clinton was aware of the scam and profited financially.
- An old article, written in Salon.com, described in detail
the specifics behind the inner-workings of the Arkansas scandal:
- "At the Cummins Unit of the Arkansas penal system
during the 1980s, while President Clinton was still governor, inmates would
regularly cross the prison hospital's threshold to give blood, lured by
the prospect of receiving $7 a pint.
- "The ritual was creepy to behold: Platoons of prisoners
lying supine on rows of cots, waiting for the needle-wielding prisoner
orderly to puncture a vein and watch the clear bags fill with blood. Administrators
than sold the blood to brokers, who in turned shipped it to other sates
and to Japan, Italy, Spain and Canada.
- "Despite repeated warnings from the Food and Drug
Administration, Arkansas kept its prison plasma program running until 1994
when it became the very last state to cease selling its prisoners' plasma."
- Throughout the seven year process of making the documentary,
Duda claims his life had been threatened on numerous occasions being, as
well as being followed, warned to lay-off the project, hauled into court,
burglarized and having his car tires slashed.
- Regarding the making of the controversial document, he
- "Prior to the making of Factor 8, I never considered
myself an investigative journalist. In fact, I had never written a newspaper
article before in my life. I was an aspiring filmmaker who had a story
thrown into his lap.
- "Actually, it wasn't even a story at the time but
a series of events that allegedly took place in my home state in the 1980s.
It was a tale I didn't want to tell, but the more I looked into it, the
more I found. It didn't take long before I realized that regardless of
the cost and sacrifice, the story you're about to see which is a complicated
one had to be told. There where quite literally lives at stake. I felt
a moral responsibility, a civic duty to do something."
- During the making of the film, Duda interviewed prison
officials, high-ranking Arkansas figures, foreign victims, former employees
and inmate blood donors.
- The film debuted at the prestigious film festival two
weeks ago, but was actually delayed for two years after its premier was
blocked by a Park City, Utah, federal judge right before it was set to
open in 2004.
