Last Wednesday I began the story of “The Ghost of Ivan.” It relates to Trooper Tom Foley who wrote a book “Most Wanted” about how he chased after Whitey. He told us how as a state trooper he joined with the FBI to fight organized crime.
I always believed Foley was duped by the FBI. I never knew how badly until I saw how the FBI totally brainwashed him. Foley believed he was joining an outfit that had a remarkable history of fighting organized crime. While working inside with the FBI he had a chance to learn a little about its history going after the organized crime types. What he learned he wrote about in his 2012 book.
“The FBI had started hitting mobsters with its Top Hoodlum Program of 1953, and it had made a famous score in 1957, when it rounded up a slew of baffled Mafiosi at what was supposed to be their top-secret gathering in Binghamton, New York.”
I suppose he got that right from the horse’s mouth. That is what the FBI would like us to believe. Unfortunately for the FBI and Foley it is totally untrue
