Does the FBI send in informants who themselves set up innocents to appear as the informants responsible for a bust? I know one man, "Bill", who worked at a company in which a former employee was busted by the FBI for a computer theft ring in Chelmsford,Mass and was befriended by another man who claimed to be "new". After Bill left, this 'friend' kept in touch and after a year of friendship divulged that they~~ were not new to the company following the FBI bust. After the bust,it appeared as if Bill was being set up to appear as the informant by this 'friend', who may have been the true informant for the FBI. This whole thing might be an example of an innocent being set up by the FBI to protect its informants.~
Governor Cellucci hosted his transition team meeting at the office of Sullivan and Cogliano, a recruitment firm with past ties to deceased Rocco Solimeno's business partner.
Many bad things happened to Pat after Bulger fled. Pat became the target of personal attacks, rampant unemployment, financial destruction and eventual homelessness, all following the threat of the Cellucci/Bush supporter's predictions. Is Pat paying the price for something Pat doesn't even know about their past?
In the early 1960s, just prior to the outbreak of the Mclean-Mclaughlin wars, Woburn was the fulcrum for a clash between forces: 1) Space industry, and 2) Defense industry.After JFK died, Flemmi emerges and 7-8 yrs later Bulger. And in the 1980s NSA establishes Boston as a recruiting center.
An acquaintance who has been totally destroyed since Bulger fled in 1995 has been approached by individuals claiming family ties to the upper tiers of local and national FBI managementwhile having been misled by the Justice Management Division of the Department of Justice. These approaches usually involve intimidation or extortion with the deliverers claiming FBI affiliation in the Merrimack Valley region of northern Massachusetts which includes a regional FBI office outside of the Boston office.
Has the Defense Investigative Service and FBI teamed up to squeeze a child of Bulger or a close friend of Bulger's to keep Bulger away?
Are Whitey Bulger and Flemmi's names being smeared to bringclosure to their roles in a covert operation?
There is one individual with a link to Rocco Solimeno's business partner who has had nothing but a continuous succession of bad experiences, many suspicious, in the employment sector in Massachusetts and New Hampshire since this case broke.The former business partner of Solimeno was allied to Sullivan and Cogliano (personnel placement)the same offices where former governor Cellucci held his transition team meeting.When the Bulger case imploded, this individual,introduced to Solimeno's partner as a young child ignorant of Solimeno, this person became the focal point of blame in the increasing finger pointing in the Bulger case. It was as if the person had some hidden past kept from that person but known to insiders and when this unravelled that individual, now an adult, became a target for vengeance.This person knew nothing about Solimeno and had been introduced into this circle by state authorities.
