Danny Casolaro: The Octpus
Speaking of the BCCI, I just want to give a shout out to Danny Casolaro and cite what he referred to as the Octopus. Danny Casolaro was an investigative journalist back when they still existed long before the rise of CNN and the fake news monopoly.
He was doing a story on organized crime and called it the Octoupus because it was so far reaching and so deceptive. It's tentacles spread everywhere including government and it was so evasive. As soon as you started investigating it, the black ink would come out and it would disappear. As soon as you cut one tentacle off, three more would grow in its place. It went far beyond INSLAW and the stolen PROMIS software. It cut to the heart of Iran contra and the CIA.
