Two things about this letter shocked the hell out of me. First, Mr. Scutari reveals that not only did the FBI want him to testify for the feds at the Fort Smith sedition trial, but offered to supply him with "facts, figures, and dates". That's right -- canned information. No way could Mr. Scutari have known in advance whether or not the information would have been true. This means the FBI doesn't care if their witnesses lie on the stand, so long as they can lie credibly. Here's the pertinent excerpt from Mr. Scutari's letter:
...Two and a half months after receiving my 60-year sentence, two FBI agents came to the prison and talked separately to James Ellison and me. We were offered our freedoms if we would testify against movement leaders and others in the upcoming Berg and Sedition trials. Ellison accepted the deal and was the government’s star witness at the trial in Ft. Smith. He was released from prison after his performance at the trial. I refused to cooperate. One of the leaders they wanted me to testify against was Dr. Pierce. Because I was very rarely away from Bob Mathew’s side during the last 6 months of his life, the feds believed I was present when Bob allegedly gave Dr. Pierce $250k to $500k. When I told them they would not believe what I did not know, they responded by saying that they would supply me with facts, figures, and dates. After again telling them I would not cooperate with them, I was placed in the hole, had phony escape charges place against me, transferred from a medium security prison to a high security prison, had a management variable placed on me raising my custody level from medium to high max. It took me 22-years to get that variable off me.
Mind you, I wasn't exactly born yesterday. I already knew from the official authorized versions of the JFK assassination, the shootdown of TWA Flight 800, the OKC bombing, and 9-11 that the feds had a habit of massaging the truth and withholding pertinent information from the public. But never had I seen an account of a federal agency offering to literally "make up the truth" and hand it to a prospective witness for dissemination in court.
The other thing that was also shocking, but much less so, was the grossly disparate sentencing imposed upon James Ellison and Richard Scutari. Both appeared equally involved in the movement. But while Ellison, who had faced a maximum 20-year sentence, was released after only two years because he testified for ZOG, Mr. Scutari is still in prison after 22 years (he was sentenced to 60 years total) because he wouldn't testify. Does this mean Scutari is mathematically 11 times more dangerous than Ellison? Not hardly -- what it shows is gross disproportionality. If you don't cooperate with ZOG, you don't merely get punished -- you get buried. Ask Matt Hale about his ridiculous 40-year sentence. Look at the differential sentencing between Larry Fairfax, who planted a bomb under Cyndi Steele's car but sang for ZOG and got a 2 1/2 year wrist slap, versus Edgar Steele, who merely was wishing out loud in a moment of medically-induced weakness that Cyndi was no longer around and got buried with 50 years.
No discussion of the Fort Smith Sedition Trial is complete without reference to Frazier Glenn Miller, who also testified for the government. But despite the fact that no one was convicted because the jury did not consider the government witnesses to be credible, many on the Old Right, most notably Pastor Martin Lindstedt, are not inclined to forgive Miller for his testimony. But Miller, who had a wife and family, must have sensed that he would have got buried like Richard Scutari had he held out, so he made the painful decision to testify, gambling that he could massage his testimony enough to prevent a conviction. Miller discusses his travails in his book "A White Man Speaks Out". Miller specifically gives his account of the sedition trial HERE. It can be tough to stand firm when the choice is between two years and 60 years. That's why I'm not inclined to judge Miller, although I admire Scutari's fidelity.
