Off-the-Wailing-Street, NY - (Rioters): A toxic paper trail connecting a Mossad cover up in the Enron collapse to Ponzi scam fraudster Bernard Madoff may be behind the hedge fund swindler's spectacular $50 billion heist.
According to depositions filed before Manhattan District Attorney Bob Morgethau the evidence has lain dormant in FBI files that dismissed the January 2002 'sudden unexpected death' of Enron executive J Clifford Baxter as 'suicide'.
The former high flier was found dead at the wheel of his brand new $250,000 Mercedes-Benz S500 in Sugar Land, Texas with two gunshot wounds to the temple.
Local FBI sources immediately pronounced him a 'tragic suicide victim' following frantic calls from their boss to George W Bush in the White House.
It soon emerged that Baxter had sold a massive quantity of Enron shares just before the Enron bankruptcy and invested the cash with Madoff using a fictitious investment vehicle.
"Yeah, think of it as a humunguous gas-guzzling Ponzi Hummer and you won't be far off the mark," a former Mossad operative commented today.
Baxter had been on the point of testifing before Congress about Enron CEO Jeffrey Skilling's use of highly dubious Mossad mercenaries in the acquisition of Azerbaijani oil pipeline concessions.
The whereabouts of his documentary evidence is still a mystery, "although perhaps not for very long!" to quote that covert ex-Israeli intelligence source, hehe.
