For those of you who wish to inform yourselves further about the Franklin Coverup:
Graham Spanier, former Penn State president who, according to the Freeh report, helped cover up Jerry Sandusky’s pedophile crimes, turns up with a federal-government job so secret no one can talk about it.
Spanier’s lawyer, Peter Vaira, tells the Washington Post he doesn’t know what the job is or which agency Spanier is working for. The job involves part-time consulting on national security issues.
Spanier claims he obtained a security clearance from the feds during his tenure as Penn State president, and after he was fired, federal investigators checked him out and decided to maintain that clearance.
In other words, because Spanier kept his mouth shut about Sandusky’s crimes against children, this proved he was no snitch and the government could trust him to keep its secrets, too?
The NY Times has reported on a 2002 incident involving Spanier. A Phoenix private investigator, Paul McLaughlin, claims he spoke with Spanier on the phone. McLaughlin offered to send Spanier a tape of a conversation in which a Penn State professor, John Naisworth, admitted he molested McLaughlin when he was a young boy. According to McLaughlin, Spanier refused the tape.
A case against Professor Naisworth was eventually thrown out. The judge wouldn’t allow the tape to be entered as evidence.
What federal agency is Spanier now working for? What national-security issues is he privy to? Is there an agency we’ve never heard of, whose job is to protect high-level pedophiles from investigation and prosecution?
Spanier denies he ever knew about Sandusky molesting children. He states he never would have let something so heinous slip by. He may have a chance a to prove that in court. Charges could be filed against him.
Victor Thorn, writing at the American Free Press, paints explosive background on Spanier’s tenure as chancellor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) and Spanier’s possible connection to the infamous Franklin Coverup, a pedophile operation that reached into the highest levels of the US government.
“…one of Spanier’s personal associates at UNL was a man named Ronald Roskens [a past UNL Chancellor and President]. Roskens has been intimately linked to the notorious Franklin Scandal, and then received his termination notice after being photographed with young naked boys at his residence.
“Gary Caradori, a private investigator that delved into Franklin, wrote of the circumstances surrounding Roskens’s firing. ‘I was informed that Roskens was terminated by the state because of sexual activities reported to the Regents and verified by them. Mr. Roskens was reported to have had young men at his residence for sexual encounters. As part of the separation from the state, he had to move out of the state-owned house because of the liability to the state if some of his sexual behavior was illegal.’
“On July 11, 1990, after obtaining pornographic-pedophile photographs that would have irreversibly exposed Franklin, Caradori was murdered when his Piper aircraft exploded in mid-air, killing him and his eight-year-old son.
“It goes without saying that the similarities between these acts of pedophilia in Nebraska show a close resemblance to the alleged Sandusky pedophilia scandal that Spanier helped cover-up at PSU. In this light, a question must be asked: Was Spanier brought to PSU because of his close ties to a far-reaching pedophile network in Nebraska? Was he the hands-on university president that oversaw what many in-the-know at PSU realized was a powder keg that could explode at any moment (and eventually did)?”
Meanwhile, Radar Online is reporting that a witness just told the FBI he saw Jerry Sandusky and a Penn State donor abuse two boys on a private plane. This witness states he has business connections with the donor.
Before this is over, we should, at the very least, learn yet again how a powerful institution (e.g., Penn State) covers up its knowledge of crimes and enables those crimes, in the service of maintaining a front of respectability and dignity. But if the investigation stops there, we’ll know less than we should about far-flung global pedophile networks:
