Leave it to a small town newspaper, The Calaveras Enterprise
of California, to provide the details on the alleged double
murder-suicide of former CIA pilot Philip Marshall and his two children.
It is the details of Marshall's occupation and his recent travels that
may link the suspicious deaths in the Forest Meadows subdivision of
Murphys, California to the suspicious death of a Staten Island, New York
amateur photographer, wife, and mother of two in Istanbul, Turkey.
late Thursday, January 31, and Saturday, February 2, Saturday being the
same day the badly beaten body of Sarai Sierra was found along the
ancient wall of Istanbul, Marshall, age 54, allegedly took a Glock 9 mm
handgun and shot his 17-year old son Alex and 14-year old daughter
Macaila in their heads while they slept on a couch before turning the
gun on himself. Marshall was a former airline pilot for Eastern and
United and was a contract pilot for the Central Intelligence Agency and
Drug Enforcement Agency during the Iran-contra episode of the 1980s.
Marshall was also the author of two books about 9/11, which suggested
that the Bush administration, along with Saudi Arabia, not any terrorist
group, were responsible for the 9/11 attacks. Marshall also wrote an
earlier book, a novel titled Lakefront Airport, which was a recollection of his experiences in the Iran-contra episode.
According to the Enterprise, Marshall's
neighbors discounted the Calaveras County Sheriff's quick determination
that the shooting deaths of the Marshalls, along with that of
Marshalls' wife's dog, were a murder-suicide. Toxicological findings for
the final autopsy reports may not be available for several weeks, the Enterprise reported. The Stockton Record reported that police
"did not find any evidence at the scene to indicate what motivated
Phillip Marshall to kill his children." Yet the police made the
determination of a double homicide, pet dog killing, and suicide anyway.
said they heard no gun shots but police were quick to dispel the notion
that the suspected gun used was silenced. However, the police did not
say whether other guns used by other parties may have used silencers.
One neighbor across the street said he heard strange noises late Friday
Friends of the Marshall children said they exchanged text
messages with them Thursday night and nothing appeared abnormal.
Although Marshall was estranged from his wife Sean and there was a
police record from 2008 of domestic physical altercations between them
and between Marshall and his sister-in-law, Marshall and his wife
traveled to Turkey together six weeks prior to allegedly buy saffron for
an unnamed import-export business. Sierra, who left her husband and
children in New York and had never traveled abroad, took a trip to
Turkey and disappeared from sight around January 21. Marshall's wife,
Sean, was in Istanbul the same time Sierra's body was discovered.
The Sacramento Bee
conveniently omitted the fact that Marshall's wife was traveling to
Turkey at the time of the deaths of her family, merely reporting she was
"out of the country."
Police reported that Sierra's Samsung
Galaxy phone and iPad were missing although her gold earrings, necklace
and bracelet were still on her body. Other reports said Sierra's i-Phone
was also missing. Sierra had been beaten so bad her face was said to be
unrecognizable. Police also said that although Sierra was only wearing a
shirt and underwear, she had not been raped.
flew from Istanbul to Amsterdam and Munich before returning to Istanbul
after which she disappeared. Sierra also reportedly was hanging around
with a criminal element, according to the FBI. Sierra's travels and
interests in her first trip abroad correspond to those of a DEA or other
federal agent who was either a rookie or was using a new "cover"
passport. The CIA and DEA also use "import-export" businesses, such as
one importing "saffron" from Turkey, as covers.
Marshall's 2008 book, False Flag 911: How Bush, Cheney and the Saudis Created the Post-911 World, is described as follows by Amazon:
the flight deck of a Boeing 767, airline captain Philip Marshall pulls
back the veil of deception surrounding the 911 attacks. In gripping,
authoritative detail he recreates the hijacked flights, including all
their technical challenges, exploding the myths behind official accounts
of pilot training and tactical planning. His finding: the mission could
not have been carried out by any known terrorist group. Explaining for
the first time the hijackers’ mysterious trips to Las Vegas, where and
how they could have been trained, and the document that actually states a
political motive for the attacks, he finds abundant evidence
implicating a nexus of Saudi officials, American contractors and, most
unthinkably, members of the Bush administration. Analyzing 911 in terms
of its original tactical plan, Marshall concludes that the attack
partially failed, and that its failures could ultimately serve to bring
the creators of the Post 911 World to light, if not to justice.
Marshal's last book, published in 2012, The Big Bamboozle: 9/11 and the War on Terror, is described as follows:
the perspective of a Boeing 767 captain and former "special activities"
contract pilot, Philip Marshall straps the reader into the cockpits of
hijacked commercial airliners to tell the story of the most
sophisticated terrorist attack in history. Based on a comprehensive
ten-year study into the murders of his fellow pilots on 9/11, he
explains how hijackers, novice pilots at the controls of massive guided
missiles, were able to beat United States Air Force fighters to iconic
targets with advanced maneuvering, daring speeds and a kamikaze finish.
But, as Marshall explains, the tactical plan was so precise that it
rules out car-bombers and shoe-bombers known as al Qaeda, KSM and Osama
bin Laden. So then, who was it? That's what you are about learn. Backed
by official NTSB, FAA and black box recordings, Marshall finds the most
capable and most documented group of conspirators buried deep within a
Congressional Inquiry's report and retraces their work in gripping
detail. Fasten your seatbelt--- the sad truth is that all of the solid
evidence points to a dark collaboration between members of the Bush
Administration and a covert group of Saudi government officials. This is
a game changer that will finally set the record straight on the most
horrific crime in US history. This book is a compilation of official
reports that disputes the Bush Administration, the Bush Intelligence
Community and the American media's account of the 9/11 attack. United
States Senator Bob Graham's Congressional Joint Inquiry in 2002 revealed
that Saudi Arabian Intelligence agents met the 9/11 hijackers in the
Los Angeles in January of 2000, harbored them and led them to 18 months
of flight training in Florida and Arizona. Marshall follows reports from
FBI field agents that warned George W. Bush's Administration that a
"cadre of individuals of investigative interest were engaged in flight
training" in the Arizona desert in the spring of 2001. Marshall
identifies three top federal investigators who complained that Dick
Cheney obstructed justice by refusing access to suspects who supposedly
confessed to the greatest crime in U.S. history. None of the federal
investigators were ever allowed to verify the confession of Khalid Sheik
Mohammed who had been water boarded over 180 times at Guantanamo
detention facility. The book disputes the video and media confession of
Osama bin Laden and points out that none of the accusations by the Bush
Administration could be proved. Marshall asserts that the Saudi
government was the true executioners of the 9/11 attack and framed their
enemies while CIA special operations set up an elaborate decoy named
Osama bin Laden to divert attention away from the Saudi operation. He
follows the hijackers to flight training airports and finds that Saudi
agents led the hijackers to the Arizona desert where Boeing 757 and
Boeing 767 airliners were parked at a secluded CIA operated airport. The
operators of the CIA airport were traced to suspicious insider stock
trades on two airlines, United Airlines and American Airlines, the only
two airlines used in the 9/11 attack. Marshall breaks down the tactical
flight plan that was used by the hijackers and chronicles the actions of
Condoleezza Rice, Donald Rumsfeld, Saudi Arabian Prince Bandar bin
Sultan, Dick Cheney and George W. Bsuh to learn that their account of
the attack was severely flawed. Three top investigators wrote that Dick
Cheney had obstructed the investigation and redacted the involvement of
the Saudi government agents who were employed in California by the Saudi
Civil Aviation authority. The Congressional Inquiry reported that the
Saudi agents had "seemingly unlimited funding from Saudi Arabia" and had
traced the hijacker financial support to Prince Bandar through a Riggs
Bank account. Finally Marshall chronicles the media trial that allowed
Bush and Cheney to derail American Justice by trying the 9/11 case with
media propaganda and away from the American federal court system.
also apparently knew CIA contract pilot, government informant, and drug
smuggler Barry Seal, gunned down in his car execution style in Baton
Rouge, Louisiana in 1986. Seal was preparing to provide evidence to
federal investigators of Vice President George H W Bush's involvement in
CIA cocaine smuggling and the Iran-contra scandal. Vice President
Bush's personal phone number was reportedly found in the trunk of Seal's
car. Seals murderer or murderers were never brought to justice.
Pulitzer Prize-winning author Gary Webb documented the CIA drug
smuggling activities in his book Dark Alliance. Webb was found
dead in his Sacramento home in 2004 from two gunshot wounds to the head.
The county coroner ruled the death a suicide.
Former Senator Graham's novel, Keys to the Kingdom, is about a retired senator from Florida named John
Billington who takes meticulous notes and tells a State Department
intelligence officer about a Saudi connection to terrorism. Before he
can provide any further details, Billington is run over by a black
pickup truck, killing him. Billington is obviously Graham in the novel
that points to a significant Saudi government connection to terrorism.
The late Philip Marshall agreed with Graham's contention concerning
Saudi links to terrorist attacks in the United States.
Obama's policy on assassinating American citizens anywhere in the world
has been authorized by what are called "elastic" Department of Justice
criteria. Four Americans are now dead with Turkey being a common factor.
Because of his policies, Mr. Obama now owes the nation a full
explanation of "what he knew and when he knew it" every time an American
dies from suspicious causes at home or abroad. The Marshall-Sierra
deaths call for an immediate "what they knew and when they knew it"
explanation from Mr. Obama and the architect of America's torture,
kidnapping, and assassination policies, John O. Brennan, nominated by
Obama to head the CIA.
