But there is another, more important backchannel no one is talking about - the one used for "continuity of government" (COG) communications. According to Professor Peter Dale Scott, that backchannel was used in the following manner:
- To communicate on the day of JFK's assassination, possibly by the conspirators themselves;
- To communicate during Watergate, possibly by the conspirators themselves;
- To facilitate whatever was really going on during Iran-Contra, possibly to coordinate the illegal smuggling of weapons and drugs; and
- To communicate on 9/11, apparently by Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, and other possible conspirators.
You can find an essay about this backchannel here:
You also can find more about it on Scott's own website, but you'll have to dig through it and/or his books to find everything he has written about COG:
Frankly, government secrecy is used to cover up both legal and illegal activities. Trillions of our dollars have been stolen and multiple crimes committed, but the culprits will never be brought to justice. Everything they did is buried under the cloak of "national security".
By the way, in a former life I had the opportunity to become a COG contact but did not, and I'm happy that I didn't.
