Began Spying in College
A private researcher claims to have found “the smoking gun” linking President Bill Clinton to the CIA as a long-term operative.
The ties were obvious in the 1980’s when the agency used an airstrip in western Arkansas as part of a money laundering- drugs for money scam and continue today through Clinton appointments.
EXCLUSIVE TO THE SPOTLIGHT

New information adduced by investigator Stew Webb points to the likelihood that Bill Clinton has been a deep cover CIA agent since his days at Georgetown University.
Ivy League schools are well known as a recruiting ground for the CIA.
The man Clinton defeated for the president, George H.W. Bush, an alumnus of Yale, is widely believed to have been recruited as an undergraduate.
CIA agents are sworn to place their loyalty to the agency above anything else.
They are also expected to lie about their association with “the Company” as it is called, whenever asked-including under oath.
Of course, the CIA has its unique ways to enforce discipline.
With a budget secret from the taxpayers and its unknown (legal and illegal) businesses around the world, its total income is estimated at $35 billion per year.
One of the businesses attributed to the CIA by many researchers is drug and gun smuggling. The small airport at Mena, Arkansas, has long been known as a transshipment pint used by the CIA.
Webb estimates that some 36 billion in drugs have gone through the Mena airport during the years 1981 to 1988. (Iran/Contra) Clinton was governor of Arkansas during the years 1979-81 and 1983-92.
The controlled press barely batted an eye when investigators revealed Bill Clinton organized protests against the Vietnam War in Europe and traveled behind the Iron Curtain as a Rhodes scholar in the 1960’s.
The SPOTLIGHT has learned Clinton’s trips were more than youthful adventure. Clinton was working for the CIA, according to Webb. According to sources within the CIA, Clinton was used by the agency to infiltrate protest groups and report on their activities. In addition, Clinton used his cover as a Rhodes scholar to view the Khrushchev memoirs, then he stole documents for “the Company”, Webb said.
According to sources, Clinton was answering to London bureau chief Cord Meyer when he took the Khrushchev documents. Contacted in Washington recently, Meyer denied Clinton was working for the agency (CIA).
Webb said his sources indicate former Time editor and Council on Foreign Relations mouthpiece Strobe Talbott, international business tycoon Ira Magaziner and a third Ivy League grad. at Oxford all started careers with the CIA as they were schooled in England. The one unidentified agent died shortly after returning to this country. The other three engaged in brilliant careers that placed them in influential positions the media, business and politics.
Talbott, for example, was able to influence international opinion as a writer at Time and frequent talking head on infomercials- public affairs propaganda aimed at enforcing the Establishment line-such as Inside Washington. Talbott now serves as an undersecretary of state.
Magaziner made millions of dollars as a management consultant to major international corporations and as an advisor to Sweden and Israel after graduating.
Today Magaziner handles the day-to-day operations of the president’s health care task force. One of the plans being pushed forward by the task force is a national identification card, which could be used to keep tabs on individuals around the country (SPOTLIGHT, June 28,1993).
Clinton began a meteoric political rise culminating in his election as president. Clinton appears to have helped the agency whenever and wherever he could on his way to the top.
KHRUSHCHEV PAPERS FIRST ASSIGNMENT
One of Bill Clinton’s first assignments with the CIA was to sneak into Moscow and bring out the Nikita Khrushchev memoirs, according to freelance investigator Stew Webb.
“I was told by two sources within the CIA that Bill Clinton has been CIA since 1967 or 68,” freelance investigator Stew Webb said.
“Clinton and a couple of others went to Moscow from Stockholm, Sweden.
“They acted as a couple of Rhode scholars,” he added. “They were able to, for research purposes, view Khrushchev’s memoirs.
They stole them for the CIA. They answered to a guy named Cord Meyer.” Meyer served as the London CIA bureau chief while Clinton was in England studying under the Rhodes scholarship program. Clinton is also alleged to have infiltrated war protest groups for the agency, giving the CIA names of fellow protesters and the source of the movement’s funding.
When Khrushchev Remembers was published in 16 different languages in the early 1970s, it was denounced as a CIA trick.
Meyer’s history with the agency is intertwined with recent American history.
Meyer, for example, talked with teamster boss Jimmy Hoffa the day after John F. Kennedy was assassinated.
They maintained correspondence until the day Hoffa disappeared, according to Webb.
Also, Meyer’s ex-wife, Mary Pinchot Meyer, was murdered October 12, 1964, shortly after deciding to publish her diary– including details of an affair with JFK. Webb said his sources tell him Mrs. Meyer’s death was a CIA hit ordered by James Angleton, a CIA counterintelligence specialist.
“She kept a diary on the affair,” Webb said. “She announced publicly to different people that she was having this affair with Kennedy and she was going to print a book.
“All of a sudden she ended up dead, and her diary ends up disappearing.”
Sources say Angleton had the diary destroyed once it came into his possession. In addition, Angleton handled the CIA’s dealing with the Warren Commission investigation of the Kennedy assassination.
Angleton was Israel’s chief advocate in the CIA.
