During the Contra War, CIA proprietary aircraft flew weapons to Central America and returned to the US with tons of cocaine. The influx of cocaine fueled the crack cocaine epidemic in the US, resulting in the deaths of thousands of Americans. Marine Corps Air Station El Toro, California, was one of the US military bases used to support this illegal covert operation. Marines who were a threat to blow the whistle on the narcotrafficking were murdered. Robert O’Dowd, former Marine stationed at El Toro, and Dr. John David Sabow, brother of Marine Colonel James E. Sabow who was murdered in January 1991, were interviewed by Richie Allen, UK journalist and broadcaster via Skype. Richie Allen is a journalist and broadcaster with a background in commercial radio, alternative media TV and now a fast-emerging global radio show exposing the truth about world events and reality that you will not get in the corporate-controlled mainstream media.
- More than 30,000 people a night tune into Richie Allen from Monday to Friday after just a few weeks – and many more through the repeats and on YouTube.
- The show is syndicated globally on four other platforms (Davidicke.com, Fabradiointernational.com, Talkradioeurope.com and Liveleak.com) with others waiting to come on board, not least in the United States.
- The show has already featured some of the biggest names in the alternative media including Ken O’Keefe, David Icke, Max Igan, Gerald Celente and Cynthia McKinney, among many others.
All this after only 8 weeks on air. Imagine what the show could achieve after 8 months. The potential is fantastic.
Robert O’Dowd served in the 1st, 3rd and 4th Marine Aircraft Wings during 52 months of active duty in the 1960s. While at MCAS El Toro for two years, O’Dowd worked and slept in a Radium 226 contaminated work space in Hangar 296 in MWSG-37, the most industrialized and contaminated acreage on the base.
Robert is a two time cancer survivor and disabled veteran. Robert graduated from Temple University in 1973 with a bachelor’s of business administration, majoring in accounting, and worked with a number of federal agencies, including the EPA Office of Inspector General and the Defense Logistics Agency.
After retiring from the Department of Defense, he teamed up with Tim King of Salem-News.com to write about the environmental contamination at two Marine Corps bases (MCAS El Toro and MCB Camp Lejeune), the use of El Toro to ship weapons to the Contras and cocaine into the US on CIA proprietary aircraft, and the murder of Marine Colonel James E. Sabow and others who were a threat to blow the whistle on the illegal narcotrafficking activity. O’Dowd and King co-authored BETRAYAL: Toxic Exposure of U.S. Marines, Murder and Government Cover-Up. The book is available as a soft cover copy and eBook from Amazon.com. See: http://www.amazon.com/Betrayal-Exposure-Marines-Government-Cover-Up/dp/1502340003.
