Conroy: U.S. AG Briefed on House of Death Murders

Conroy: U.S. Attorney General Briefed on House of Death Murders, DEA Administrator Admits


October 2, 2005
Please Distribute Widely

A new document that Bill Conroy has received as part of his investigation into the "House of Death" case – in which a paid U.S. informant took part in the tortures and murders of at least twelve people in a Juárez, Mexico house with the knowledge of his handlers in the Justice and Homeland Security departments – contains a very interesting revelation: the Attorney General himself was briefed on the situation over a year ago and still did nothing to resolve it.

Conroy writes:

"In the deposition, [DEA Administrator Karen] Tandy admits that sometime prior to early March 2004 the U.S. Attorney General (then John Ashcroft) and the Deputy Attorney General (then James B. Comey) were 'personally briefed' about the 'issues with ICE' — that is, the complicity of ICE agents in the House of Death murders.

"However, to date, no one has been prosecuted for those brutal slayings; not the informant who participated in them, not the ICE agents or U.S. prosecutor who were aware of the informant's participation, yet continued to use him to make a drug case; not even Santillan, the narco-trafficker accused of ordering the House of Death murders."

And keep reading Conroy's reports, as more documents and evidence on the nature of this crime and cover-up continue coming to light.
