Sometimes with a little bit of luck and a good roll of the dice good men prevail and evil is defeated.
In the case of the Leo Wanta story, the jury is still out whether the former Treasury agent is on the good side or the bad.
But according to the wife of a murdered U.S. Army Colonel, charged with overseeing more than 175 CIA secret bank accounts, Wanta isn't the "white knight" portrayed in many internet articles, including those on the Arctic Beacon.
V.K.Durham, the widow of Col. Russell Herman, who claims her husband was assassinated by government thugs, said Wanta is one of the good old boys, adding:
"He is part of the old BUSH-CLINTON-CONTRA "DRUG AND MONEY LAUNDERING GROUP" that found it necessary TO SHOW SOURCE OF COLLATERAL/FUNDS under new International Banking Regulations ..and did a lot FORGERY, FALSE NOTARY and BACK DATING on the "BONUS 3392-181" COLLATERAL "DEBT" Instruments owned by the DURHAM HOLDING TRUST, Tias 12087 trying to 'get legitimate' and 'make organized crime or R.I.C.O. "Murder Inc. & Murder For Profit "Legal!"
Just trying to follow the web of murder and intrigue will give even the hardiest investigator a migraine, besides I have an international finance class to get ready for...
I did find this part amusing though:
Leo Vanta (Wanta) takes great delight in letting the public know he brought down THE RUSSIAN BANKS.. CNNMoney has an interesting article from 1998 which you should read.. http://money.cnn.com/1998/08/17/economy/ruble/ .only 2 pages, but worthy of copy.
The problem is, the limited role that Wanta had in the Ruble scam, took place over half a decade earlier. In fact, by 1995 he was serving time in a Wisconsin prison for tax evasion, and hardly had a major impact on Russian currency problems 3 years later.
