Confirmed! William Fulton is one of the FBI informants who helped to bring Schaeffer Cox and his militia pals to justice.
The other day I was contacted out of the blue by somebody claiming to have inside information about William Fulton, Shaeffer Cox, and how the FBI gathered their evidence.
As usual I took it with a grain if salt, because individuals have tried to feed me misleading information in the past.
However I soon learned that this person was DEFINITELY somebody in the know and I had little trouble confirming their identity, and that their information was reliable.
As is usual in these cases I gathered quite bit of substantial, and fascinating information, only a portion of which I am able to share at this time. However if you are patient, and can wait until the Cox trial is over, I have been assured this source will come out of the shadows and gladly go on the record.
One the things that I AM able to confirm is that William Fulton, aka "Drop Zone Bill," is indeed one of the FBI informants.
As we assumed he is no longer in the state, as there are fears for the safety of both he and his family, but there is a chance he will make an appearance at the trial to testify, with protection provided by the Feds.
(Remember though the Alaska Militia may appear to be more Keystone Kops than mafia types, they are connected to a wider network of far more dangerous individuals who would relish the opportunity to silence a snitch.)
I also learned some interesting details about the case which leads me to believe that Shaeffer and his friends are S.O.L. when it comes to beating this in court. Let's just say the FBI did their homework.
Which brings me to our teabagging friend, and ex-Fulton employer, Joe Miller. According to this source, my previous characterization of Miller as somebody who right now is sitting in a pool of his own sweat, pulling on his sorry excuse for a beard, and trying to remember exactly what he might have said while in the company of his old buddy "Drop Zone Bill," was much closer to the truth than I could have previously imagined.
Let's just say the FBI is VERY thorough as well.
You know if all of this keeps up I am going to have to start putting extra time in on the treadmill just to work off all of the popcorn I have been consuming lately. It is like the fun never stops up here in the Last Frontier, isn't it?
P.S. As in times past all guesses as to the identity of my source will be rejected, so don't bother leaving them in the comments section. And if anybody feels the need to make any threats along with their comment, or in a direct e-mail, please know that I will be actively gathering IP addresses and sending them to my contacts with the FBI just as fast as my stubby little fingers can type them out. Just so you know.
