Accusations have been made against two senior U.S. Navy officials that may well lead to charges of conspiracy to commit murder and treason, says Gordon Duff, a senior editor at Veterans Today in Ohio.
Vice Admiral Kevin J. Cosgriff and Commander Lynn Chow had conspired to have Gwyneth Todd, a former White House security staffer, killed in Bahrain and blame it on Tehran to instigate a war with the Islamic Republic, Duff said, citing several sources, including Todd herself.
“Yesterday, Senator Patrick Leahy, the head of the Senate Judiciary Committee contacted sources of ours directly indicating that he told the Department of Defense to investigate the case of Gwyneth Todd,” he told Press TV’s U.S. Desk on Thursday.
Todd was a civilian contractor to the Navy, serving as “Chief Political Consultant for Middle Eastern Affairs,” attached to the 5th Fleet in Bahrain under Vice Admiral Cosgriff.
Cosgriff - backed by a powerful friend and boss, U.S. Central Command chief Adm. William J. “Fox” Fallon - was itching to start a war with Iran, Todd and other present and former Navy officials say, according to The Washington Post.
“It is our belief that an investigation of this will lead directly to former Vice President Cheney, who we are told originated this order to have an American killed, have it blamed on Iran and instigate a war,” Duff said.
When Todd showed up alive, she managed to convince base security to let her in, get her passport, file reports with the State Department, warning them of Cosgriff’s plans and to then escape from Bahrain, eventually ending up in Australia, reports The Veterans Today.
Those who helped Todd were put on terror lists, hunted down as was Todd, at least one person was murdered and she has been in fear for her life for 5 years, the report says.
Todd later decided to put her accusations on the record by giving interviews to half a dozen radio hosts.
