Talk:Scott L. Wheeler
re Scott L. Wheeler:
This guy is one of the men who started the quickie republican PAC, The National Republican Trust Political Action Committee (NRT PAC)
A LOW CLASS HATE MONGERING PAC whospent more money email fundraising than actually doing anything of substance except spreading their hate mongering one sided and very biased view of the world.
Made up of two pin heads and probably a front for even more fearful of change Bush supporters, these people are really just closet racists who fear an Obama Presidency.
Why else would they create racist inflicted ads, based on Wright, really a non issue at this point, and the spreading a lie of all illegal immigrants getting drivers licenses and stealing American jobs. Jobs one might add, that most Americans just don't want!
They created some smear ads at the end of the 2008 campaign that were just despicable, so filled with hate, lies and innuendo that even fact.,org came out against them.
What a piece of work this guy is.
Also I see no mention hear of Scott's for for the Rev. Sun Yung Moon, funny how those things get left out!

- Christopher Ruddy, "It's `Desperation Time' for Clintons as Whitewater Trail Continues to Widen," NewsMax, March 3, 1996:
"Colorado-based journalist Scott Wheeler, who has covered the Mena story for several years and is considered an expert on the matter, says he has documentary evidence suggesting drug activity at the airport during the past year.
"Wheeler, who continually photographs planes and their tail numbers at the airport, recently compared the numbers to official records in Customs Department computers. He discovered that a half dozen planes he photographed had tail numbers that had been illegally appropriated from legally registered planes. Wheeler said such funny business is cause for Customs to seize a plane. For instance, one turboprop aircraft he photographed at Mena just months ago has a tail number legally registered to a jet owned by General Electric Corp. Two other plane's tail numbers were not even found in Customs records, indicating they were in the country illegally.
"Another Customs document obtained by Wheeler and shared with the Tribune-Review shows that in 1989 Dan Lasater, a friend and supporter of Bill Clinton, was the target of a federal drug probe. The record reads: 'suspect in cocaine importation/distribution case - alleged; laundering of narcotics proceeds - alleged.'"
- Christopher Ruddy, "Source: Freeh, not Reno, on Way Out," NewsMax, December 8, 1996:
"Free-lance journalist Scott Wheeler, who has pursued the Mena Airport story more than any other, alleges he was the subject of an FBI wiretap earlier this year. Wheeler has doggedly investigated evidence that organized crime, with the complicity of Arkansas state government, used a tiny airport in Mena, Ark., as a transshipment point for cocaine and other narcotics.
"On March 3, 1996, the Tribune-Review reported that Wheeler had 'uncovered documentary evidence suggesting drug activity at the airport during the past year.' This evidence was garnered, the Tribune-Review reported, through access Wheeler gained to U.S. Customs Department computers. Wheeler, who continually photographs planes and their tail numbers at the airport, recently compared the numbers to official records in Customs Department computers. He discovered that a half dozen planes he photographed had tail numbers that had been illegally appropriated from legally registered planes.
"Another Customs document Wheeler unearthed indicated that as late as 1989, Dan Lasater, a convicted cocaine distributor and friend of Bill Clinton, was the target of a federal drug probe. Lasater had claimed he dropped any drug activities after his conviction on drug charges in 1986. Lasater was pardoned by Bill Clinton in 1990.
"Recently, a congressional investigator reviewing FBI files came across a heavily redacted transcript that resulted from an FBI wiretap relating to Mena. The staffer, who thought the transcript sounded like Wheeler, shared the transcript with him. Wheeler said he was astounded to see it was in fact a conversation he had from his home phone soon after the Tribune-Review disclosed Wheeler's access to Customs Department computers and sources.
"'I think (government wiretapping) is a lot more common than people think,' Wheeler told the Tribune-Review. He said that although the wiretap indicates that his sources were providing accurate information, he is curious about why federal authorities were concerned about leaks on drug smuggling and the activities of Dan Lasater."

The following is added here to provide some background on Wheeler's "network":
- William (Billy) Bottoms (Barry Seal's brother-in-law and chief pilot), "The Mena Myth Unraveled" (re CIA drugs), csun.edu, March 1997:
From Part 3: "Russell Welch also drives up and Scott Wheeler is with him. Scott Wheeler, a rival to Dan Hopsicker. Scott comes up to me and introduces himself. Dan comes over and wants to know what Scott is doing there. Scott says he is working on an unrelated assignment in the Mena area, but he is also interested in what we are doing. Scott knows Russell Welch and apparently has met with him before on several occasions. ..."
- See Daniel Hopsicker.
From Part 4: re Scott's behavior and departure from the group. His reference to his own age, stating that he wished he was 20 years younger (this in 1997), indicates that he may be advancing in years, which could simply mean passing middle age or actually "getting on" in years; clearly implies that he is not a young man.
