Why Are So Many Serial Killers and Mass Murderers Ex-Military?

The Use of Cultists and Serial Killers in Death Squad Hits

Editor note: This is a repeat of a previous article that we are reposting as it ties into yesterday’s article on the Exorcist movies. – Who and What Was Behind ‘The Exorcist’ Movies?

There are several levels of death squad hits. At the first level are high level political assassins, such as Operation 40. These individuals are more black ops types that come out of military and intelligence.

But there is a need to conduct hits at a lower level as well. These death squads get rid of innocent witnesses or nosy people. They enforce the Mafia, CIA, Mossad, police and cultists operatives’ strict, enforceable code of silence.

I also now suspect that there are targeted hits done under the murky cover of the staged deceptions. This may have happened in the Las Vegas event and certainly on 9/11.

For me it was this pardon that connected the dots.  Bush let hundreds of death-row prisoners, including women, an elderly grandmother, crimes of passion murderers and, as it turns out, a few innocent people — but not ol’ Henry, one of the most evil serial killers in history. Meanwhile, brother Jeb in Florida commuted the sentence of Lucas’ vicious partner in crime, Otis Toole. Both were kept in high security blocks in prison to spare them from the general population.

Both also claimed to be members of a cult called the Hand of Death. The most talented of this group were hired as contract killers. Lucas was extremely lethal with a knife.

Many of the worst killers in recent American history have this bizarre, satanic, cultist or ring affiliation and/or military background. The video below covers deliberate military programs to find and train command assassins. I also believe, based upon other research, that death squad activity in America (and abroad) is much more widespread than anybody can imagine.

American culture is so depraved now that there are scores of videos, games and entertainment around the theme of contract hit men, cult assassins, death cults, etc. Throw in some MK Ultra and Phoenix program influences, and one can only imagine what evil is being unleashed on the world. And how many little Palestinian kids or Middle Eastern street urchins have been kidnapped and put through these Manchurian Candidate programs over the last decades? How many are being plucked out of refugee camps today?

Is it a coincidence that serial killing was some “modern-era plague?” Both Lucas and Toole admitted that they were professional hit men when they weren’t involved with their normal hobby of recreational murder. But they adamantly refused — as if following a Mafia code — to give any particulars about their professional activities.

I believe the theory of killers from cultist groups makes more sense as cover than hiring Mafia hit men. Nobody would really believe the former anyway. David McGowan wrote a book called “Programmed to Kill: The Politics of Serial Murder.”

What’s the connection to Bush you ask? George W. was “doing family business” in Brownsville, Texas, and brother Jeb was in “banking” down in Venezuela. Here’s another Occam’s Razor scenario for you: Do you think it was ratline drug-money laundering and smuggling via Texas Commerce Bank? Why would the son of a billionaire family be in an ugly border-town hellhole like Brownsville, Texas? Earning his crime cabal spurs is my “conspiracy theory.”

Going a little deeper down the Texas Commerce Bank rabbit hole …

Saudi Investment Organization Dallah Al-Baraka Holding (Mahfouz) did a 1985 sweetheart purchase of the Texas Commerce Bank Tower for $200 million during the mid 1980s Texas oil business crash. Mahfouz’s purchase greatly benefited the fortunes of Papa Bush’s confidant and Secretary of State James Baker, law firm Baker & Botts and the Baker family — founders and principal holders of Texas Commerce stock. For those who may not have been following the story, Mahfouz was a principal shareholder of the extremely corrupt BCCI in the ’80s and is Osama bin Laden’s brother-in-law as well as major financial supporter.

So back to Brownsville. Wouldn’t you know it, Henry Lee Lucas was there, too, living on one of the satanic-cult ranches out in the desert. Perhaps you remember a story from a couple decades ago about the discovery of a mass grave out at one of those ranches. If not, here’s a Texas Monthly article from 1989 about it.

In one of his interviews, Lucas said that was a neighboring cult ranch but that “we had the same thing going on.” Mass burials around Brownsville got back on the news radar in recent years; but in reality, it has been going on in one form or another for decades. Lucas is often dismissed as a pathological liar, then later his claims often turn out to be confirmed.

When lawmen finally began to sort things out, the ritual killings seemed almost predestined. A map drawn two years ago by confessed mass-killer Henry Lee Lucas had predicted with inexplicable accuracy that the bodies of victims of satanic rituals would be found about where Kilroy and others were found.”

So here we see the mafia code being employed. If you show no loyalty or some support to your death-squad goons, word gets around that you are a bad don to work for. So a powerful crime family like the Bushes’ has to take care of their own “employees” as part of doing business. The arrangement is fundamental to answering your question. Hit men like Lucas and Toole maintain the code of silence to their death, and their death sentences are commuted and they can serve time in relative comfort in a security block. Start talkin’ shit and they would be shanked in the general prison population.

Please visualize this properly. In no way am I saying George W. was hands on in dealing with Lucas. That’s called plausible denial, also a Mob method. There is a cadre of Saul Goodman-type lawyers to handle such filth. In fact, the Bushes humanitarian gesture toward notorious serial killers may not involve their own rackets at all, but may have been for some other member of the cabal’s crime network, including the alphabet agencies.

Cover ups are conducted at high levels and the U.S. press is now completely worthless as far as uncovering truth. If anybody asks tough questions, they are labelled, humiliated and mocked. In the past, whistle blowers and investigative journalists might emerge, but that is rare anymore. The fates of these courageous people are most sickening of all to me personally, and it’s the most damaging to the country. The assassination of investigative journalist Michael Hastings is illustrative.

Military training links string of serial killers


This article was published more than 10 years ago. Some information in it may no longer be current.0 COMMENTSSHARE  TEXT SIZE

Some time after he was discharged from the army, his life turned sour, he got angry and delusional and he snapped. Wielding his gun in a suburban neighbourhood, he killed again and again: women, children, complete strangers, with military precision but without an evident motive.

This describes what police say about John Allen Muhammad, who was arrested yesterday in the Washington sniper-killing rampage. But it is also a precise description of Howard Unruh, a 28-year-old Second World War veteran who shot 13 of his New Jersey neighbours one day in 1949. His military firearms training made his “walk of death” the first modern serial-killer case.

In the 53 years that separate Mr. Unruh from Mr. Muhammad, hundreds of Americans have lost their minds and used guns to cause multiple deaths. One thing unites almost all of them: military training.

Mr. Muhammad served in the Persian Gulf war, as did Timothy McVeigh, the Oklahoma City bomber. Both received weapons training and basic military training designed to psychologically condition soldiers to kill. They are far from alone.

Serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer received military training in Texas and Alabama. David Berkowitz, the “Son of Sam” killer, was an army veteran. Charles Whitman, who killed 16 people and injured 31 in a 1961 sniper-shooting rampage from the top of a tower in Austin, Tex., had just been discharged from the U.S. Marines. Arthur Shawcross, who killed 12 people, was a Vietnam veteran.

In an overwhelming number of cases, serial killers and other mass murderers learned to kill in the military. Experts disagree whether this means that the army turns ordinary people into unfeeling killers, or the military simply attracts a large number of psychologically fragile people who are prone to become murderers.

David Grossman, a former U.S. military psychologist who helped develop programs to train new recruits to become more effective killers, said that the key to military training lies in breaking down the natural human aversion to killing in a process he calls “disengagement.” Once this aversion has been removed, it never comes back, and can make it easier for former soldiers to become murderers.

“The ability to watch a human being’s head explode and to do it again and again — that takes a kind of desensitization to human suffering that has to be learned,” Mr. Grossman said yesterday.

In earlier wars, many soldiers were psychologically unable to shoot anyone. In order to increase the “trigger-pull ratio,” the United States changed the basic training offered to all recruits and draftees so they would be aggressively desensitized to killing.

Some observers believe this may be why mass murders have become far more common in the past 50 years.


In the 1970s, some observers believed that the humiliation and social opprobrium caused by the Vietnam War, led many former soldiers to become mentally unstable, and potentially to become killers.

The Persian Gulf war of 1991 showed that this might not have been the case. Their war was popular domestically, and Persian Gulf veterans were welcomed as heroes upon return.

Yet their conflict has produced more than its share of killers. Mr. McVeigh was a decorated tank commander. His case is strikingly similar to that of Mr. Muhammad. Both seem to have gradually developed anti-American or antigovernment beliefs while serving in the Persian Gulf war; both seem to have left disillusioned. And both seem to have used their military training to commit grave crimes.FOLLOW DOUG SAUNDERS ON TWITTER @DOUGSAUNDERS REPORT AN ERROR EDITORIAL CODE OF CONDUCT
