As if the Ed Okun embezzlement case does not have enough stress and heartache for the victims, aka “Train Wreck Victims” who lost their life savings, now a cursory check of the Bureau of Prison’s inmate locater shows the following status dated April 13, 2008 for Ed Okun: “RELEASED”
Although this is most likely an oversight, it is just another in the long line of shots these people have had to endure during their attempt to recover their lost fortunes.
This instance brings to mind the internet lightening strike regarding fabled drug kingpin Carlos Lehder of the Medellin Cartel. George Jung, a number of attorneys, and journalists have posited on the internet that Lehder never spent a night in jail–even though he was convicted for his part in the importation and distribution of over 250 Tons of cocaine.
Michael C. Ruppert’s killer story theorizes that Lehder became the US Government’s cocaine dealer, distributing cocaine to countries around the world, as a means to raise quick capital, covert off the records, utilized to support covert CIA operations in foreign countries. All of these activities, mind you, were supposed to be run without the knowledge of our government officials or citizens.
Ruppert also posits that Lehder’s wife was a high ranking manager for AIG insurance in San Francisco and that Carlos himself was hiding in plain sight in the Bay Area (East Bay) for years; all the while citizens and officials connected to the case were led to believe that Lehder was incarcerated for life.
Is Ed on his way to Virginia to stand trial, is he incarcerated in Miami, is this just a computer glitch, or is it possible that Ed Okun has more connections than we realize? Could Okun be useful to our government in a way that would facilitate his release? A far fetched notion but in the scheme of the many conspiracies and realities within American history–not impossible.
