Story pick: The definitive Gary Condit profile

By Michael S. Rosenwald

Former Congressman Gary Condit's name surfaced Tuesday, as expected, at the murder trial of Ingmar Guandique, who is charged with killing Chandra Levy in 2001. What surfaced in my head was former Washington Post reporter Mike Sager's brilliant 2002 Esquire profile of Condit, titled "The Final Days of Gary Condit." Sager's piece hit the summer after Levy turned up dead in Rock Creek Park. As Esquire notes in a special introduction to its reposting of the piece, Sager's story "stands as living evidence: this was the first time anyone in that public consciousness really thought the man might be not guilty."

Sager wrote: "The longer Gary kept silent, the worse it became. Shut out, the media laid siege. Inside the castle, desperation led to bad decisions, worse results. A flight attendant surfaced, and then a hastily discarded watch box, a couple of comely former staffers, a special answering machine that played romantic music, a wellspring of lurid rumors — leather chaps and a studded harness, knotted neckties under the bed, Arab slave traders, Hells Angels, a possible pregnancy. In short order, a man who was once seen as the ideal grassroots legislator, a true man of the people — the man you could call to get a pothole fixed, your aunt's problema con la Migra cleared up, your lost VA check reissued — that man was no more. He had become instead the nation's most reviled figure."

Sager had incredible access to Condit and his family, and he spent countless hours with him. He told Sager: "I can't get anything back. And I'm not going to go around trying to change that. That's not me. That's not Gary Condit. I know who I am. I know what I'm about. I know what happened and what didn't happen. What more can I say?"

Comments is where you will find "The Condit Transcript," a report I made in 1977 to my Intelligence Officer boss, which he counter-signed and was sealed. This was after I'd witnessed the Gary Condits (plural) dispose of a "Sexual Political Embarrassment" at their Ipswitch flat in UK. While I was in US Army MI as an enlisted man and utilized as an espionage operative under the Dir. Ops, CIA.
When the Chandra case broke in 2001, I recognized Condit on TV right away, even though, at first, he wouldn't speak out loud.
I called, faxed, wrote and everything the DC PD with that M.O. (Dismembered body, parts missing [souvenirs], soft parts flushed down the toilet, well bled through the bathtub drain, head kept for a while as a sex toy, then smashed, the eyes poked out, feet tied with underwear, then hauled off in heavy duty trash bags, 3 of them, the head found nearly cleaved in two at a separate place - They ENJOY what they do & get Police and Political support - That's how Condit found a patsy in advance, Guandique, from government data bases, I am sure.
I told them this and more IN ADVANCE of Chandra's body being found just like that in plastic trash bags, having been transported & dumped by way of car trunk..
Can you convince me Grandique raped & killed her, had the foresight to bring black trash bags and such tools, dismembered her, and hauled them up to the top of a valley from the jogging trails? Even the Prosecutors now say she was killed elsewhere and the remains dumped there.
Condit and a love affair? No, there are reports that Chandra worked for DC "Madam" Deborah Palfrey & please note that both she & Brandy Britton (See their 1977 photos on my website) recently "Hung themselves." How convenient.
To this day, authorities ignore me (But surveil me like crazy), - this travesty of Justice is merely to protect somebody or somebodies high-ranking. Grandique's own defense lawyers won't call nor subpeona me, even.
No wonder it's such a high-ranking cop testifying what he did, on Tuesday. for 1977 photos of Condit & I sharing a British Army barracks room in Duesseldorf. How the CIA figured he was going to infiltrate Congress with his "Services," and now you know why... It's so blackmailed by foreign & hostile powers.
And this MUST be covered up to protect The Powers Who be from the upcoming elections.
