PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) – Police in Delaware remained tight lipped on Wednesday about why they returned to the home of John P. Wheeler III, the former Pentagon official whose body was found in a landfill on December 31.

Several officers from the Delaware city of Newark, the lead investigative force in the case, went to the New Castle home Tuesday, said Lt. Mark Farrall. He said the search warrant was sealed and declined to provide any details.

At this point there are no suspects in the case and no crime scene, Farrall said. Police were hopeful that a $25,000 reward established by the Wheeler family would result in helpful information. A tip line that police established at the time of the disappearance has been silent, Farrall said.

Wheeler’s body was found in Wilmington’s Cherry Island Landfill on December 31.

A West Point graduate, Wheeler, 66, was the first chairman of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, which was instrumental in building the wall monument in Washington. He had served in Vietnam as an aide to an Army general, had been a special assistant to the secretary of the Air Force, and was a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. Wheeler also was a lawyer for the Securities and Exchange Commission.

    Amazing that the corporate press is ignoring this. Probably because it’s all about Mitre Corp and 911. Where is Nancy Grace now?

    Let this be a lesson to all those young people who are thinking about accepting offers after graduation to work for the CIA/DIA/NSA/DEA. Anyone who has a top security clearance will be asked to do frighteningly immoral things and/or look the other way when they see them done, even at the level of treasonous behavior by top government officials. I’m thinking of 911 and the JFK/MLK/RFK assassinations — the ones we’re all aware of.

    Listen up, recruits: If you even threaten to go above your supervisor’s head or let it leak that you plan to blow the whistle, the game is over for you. In fact, you will be sacrificed when you’ve reached your level of uselessness to them or if they can benefit by using you in some throw-away black-op.

    Don’t trust these people. Don’t work for them. They are evil.

    Why do I think the most important line of that article is the last one:

    “Wheeler also was a lawyer for the Securities and Exchange Commission.”

    Tell me what you are thinking now…

    All sounding very closely related to Mitre isn’t it ?

    It absolutely amazes me how blatant the power brokers are.

    “and was a member of the Council on Foreign Relations”
    ———————————————————————————–
    That pretty much sums things up! He was going to cry wolf on 9/11 and they suicided him.

  • Jaimie11

    How are Mitre and 9/11 connected?

  • Jaimie11

    Why dump the body if it is meant to look like suicide? Murder has different consequences.

  • ghostof911

    Mitre Corp.

    As a former senior official of the Air Force, Wheeler would also have had inside information about the missing nukes.

  • ghostof911

    Ask and you shall receive. By the way, the dumpster in Newark in which Wheeler’s body was unceremoniously deposited reside only five miles from the ghost house. The dumpster in the video sits next to the ghost’s bank.

    Because the (9/11) attacks involved systems used by the FAA, NORAD, and the U.S. Air Force, the conspirators would have needed “super user” access to the command and control centers of these three separate organizations.

    Super user means the most privileged user on a computerized data system. The super user has complete access to all files on the system. For the previously mentioned agencies, and virtually all other U.S. defense and intelligence organizations, there is one such possible super user: a little-known private not-for-profit organization, based in Bedford, Mass., known as MITRE Corp. MITRE also has a headquarters in McLean, Va., on a campus it shares with Northrop Grumman.

    To give the FBI’s house cleaners a chance to spruce up the place first, of course.

    Thanks spirit, I get it.

    So, you’re that close. Are many people in your neck of the woods onto 9/11?

    Hello higher functioning part of my brain ,whats wrong with this ?

    “Oh, It Was The John P. Wheeler III Who Was Involved In The Barksdale-Minot Incident Who Was Found In A Landfill!”

    John Wheeler III, special assistant to Air Force Secretary during the 2007 B-52 nuke incident at Minot, found dead in Delaware landfill. Homicide concluded. Last seen on Amtrak from DC on Dec. 28. Dealing with neocons can be hazardous to one’s health. Not the first suspicious Air Force death as reported by WMR.

    Brilliant!

    You can only “suicide” so many before it looks odd …Gary Webb , Paul David Wellstone ,John P. O’Neill, Jon Jon JFK Jnr., Raymond Lemme, Deborah Jeane Palfrey aka DC Madam, Danny Casolaro, ,etc

    What was he working on for Mitre Corporation ? This guy had information that is critical to National Security and his death should be a red flag to the whole “Intelligence Network” ! Why isn’t it ?

  • mick

    yea,right !

  • ghostof911

    He could have suicided himself by crawling into the dumpster and then taking an overdose of tylenol like Bruce Ivins.

  • Jaimie11

    I thought that too after seeing the video – he was cold, confused, disoriented, drugged?, could have climbed into the dumpster to get warm and lost body temperature.

    “Breaking News: Ray McGovern Brutalized & Left Bleeding by Hillary Clinton Police, “So this is America!””

    To Those Who Second-Guess Our Police State Status: Shame on You!

    I just received the following news and I am way too upset to write a coherent piece on this. Ray McGovern is a good friend of mine. We live less than 10 miles apart. Together we have participated in many events and protests. He is one of the most informed, articulate, gentle, peace-loving and peace-seeking human beings I’ve ever known…For me, this hits too close to home: My father was similarly brutalized by dictator regimes, and that was only the beginning, before it escalated to being tortured and having his toenails pulled out by the state police. Why? He was a doctor, a surgeon with an inquiring mind, and he spoke out whenever he could against dictatorships and for liberties. Participating in peaceful demonstrations, encouraging others to rise up for their rights, and reading authors such as Steinbeck (the American author black-listed there as ‘communist and anarchist’) landed him on the list of to-be-punished and pacified…

    Assassins don’t call in tips for rewards and they’ve already been paid. Look somewhere else ’cause it wasn’t a normal mugging. And you can bet your butt that the lawyers mouths at the Nemours Building are tighter then clams.

    What country are you from? I’m sure it’s not your country, it might be the version of the browser that you’re using that’s preventing the video from opening.

    I was only being sarcastic. The problem with that theory is that he was seen on video at 8:30 in the evening of the 30th in Wilmington. The dumpster he was found in was picked up at 4:20 the next morning in Newark, 15 miles away.

  • PrissyPatriot®

    This is good advice-being a ‘do gooder’ and following what you thought/were taught was American justice can only get you hurt-and possibly your family. Maybe not physically harmed-who needs that when there are so many other ways to go about it…you are dealing with an entity who can and will wreck and cause upheaval in your life with the stroke of a pen and you may never know where it came from (even if you suspect).

  • hegesias

    I understand your point, but it seems your anger is misdirected. No other media outlet is even covering this bizarre and conspicuous story.

  • hegesias

    “Police in Delaware remained tight lipped…”

    Start preparing the cover up.

  • Jaimie11

    Well, a 15 mile walk would have kept his blood flowing strong, eh?

  • hegesias

    Ray McGovern is an American hero. Hellary Clinton…not so much.

  • hegesias

    Well, Council on Foreign Relations and SEC, whose many Wall St investigation documents were in WTC 7, which was hit by Wonder Woman’s invisible plane on 9/11. Very interesting indeed.

    This is a Reuters article. It’s on the wire.. it will be in all kinds of papers, buried on page C-8 or something.

    Raw does less real journalism and more glancing nods at information, but that doesn’t help us become informed. There are all kinds of important bits, as evidenced by the comments here, that Raw doesn’t have in their article. Reuters is specifically designed to mislead and distract, it’s just like the AP.. corporate owned by the masters, they dribble out bits of news without any investigation… they can claim they informed us, but they don’t educate us.. that’s what news USED to do, educate with facts; journalists used to dig out the facts and report them.. now we get cursory spattering that mean nothing by themselves.

    One would hope that a “news outlet”, as Raw kind of claims to be, would be exposing truths, not just nodding in their general direction.
