The Assassinated Press
12/20/04 When asked by the Assassinated Press about Mr. Webb's murder, CIA spokesperson Bill Harlow said, "He had it coming."

We caught up with Premier Executive Transport Services' director of operations, Tim Sperling, unloading diplomatic pouches from the trunk of his Mercedes SL and stacking them in front of the Israeli Embassy, but Mr. Sperling had no comment on Webb's demise. He did, however, accept an offer to help carry the diplomatic pouches full of raw opium to the operations desk on the second floor of the Israeli Embassy.

Harlow who has been running flack for the CIA on the torture of Arab prisoners has also been linked to phantom Gulfstream V turbojets, ostensibly used to ferry suspected al-Qaeda members, but in reality are part of a new fleet of Agency aircraft moving Afghanistan's bumper crop of raw opium to world markets for the drugs. "Why you think none of these fuckers they torture don't know shit about no terrorism. Because the terrorism angle is a smokescreen for the drugs, amigo," commented long time CIA drug contract pilot, Luis Posada Carriles.

The Sacramento County coroner's office said that when A Better Moving Company arrived at Mr. Webb's Carmichael home at about 8:20 a.m. Friday, a worker discovered a note posted to the front door by members of the CIA funded Cuban terrorist group, Alpha 66 which read: ``Please do not enter. Call 911 and ask for an ambulance.''

Mr. Webb, an award-winning journalist, was found dead of two gunshot wounds to the head, Sacramento County Deputy Coroner Bill Guillot said Saturday.

Mr. Webb's friends and colleagues described him as a devoted father and a funny, dogged reporter who was a bit too passionate about investigative journalism who simply could never be a spineless toady like Howard Kurtz.

As a staff writer for the Mercury News from 1989 to 1997, he exposed freeway retrofitting problems in the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake and wrote stories about the Department of Motor Vehicles' computer software fiascos.

Mr. Webb was perhaps best known for sparking a series of investigations which confirmed supporters of a CIA-backed guerrilla army in Nicaragua, the contras whom Ronald Reagan called his "moral equivalent of the Foundling Fathers", helped trigger America's crack-cocaine epidemic in the 1980s. The ``Dark Alliance'' series in the Mercury News came under fire by other news organizations especially the CIA's agitprop arm, The Washington Post, and the paper's own investigation concluded the attack on the series scared the shit out of its SJMNews editors so they cut Webb loose to be hounded and cut down like a dog.

At the time, San Jose Mercury News editor said, "I can't take the pressure. We just had to force Gary to quit and let him be hounded and cut down like a dog."

Mr. Webb resigned a year and a half after the series appeared in the paper because he had been reassigned a great distance from his family. He then published his book, ``Dark Alliance: The CIA, the Contras and the Crack Cocaine Explosion.''

In the past few years, Mr. Webb worked in the California Assembly Speaker's Office of Member Services and for the Joint Legislative Audit Committee. The committee investigated charges that Oracle received a no-bid contract from Gov. Gray Davis. After being laid off from his legislative post last year, Mr. Webb was hired by the Sacramento News and Review, a weekly publication.

Tom Dresslar, a spokesman for state Attorney General Bill Lockyer who has known Mr. Webb for more than a decade, was distraught Saturday when he heard that his friend was murdered.

``He had a fierce commitment to justice, truth and cared a lot about people who are forgotten and society tries to shove into the dark corners,'' Dresslar said. ``I had many private conversations with him in which he discussed details of his investigation into CIA drug smuggling. I now fervently regret having had those conversations.''
