 Slain Lansdowne resident William Bennett was connected with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) following his military service. In a conversation with the Loudoun Independent, the CIA's George Little confirmed that Bennett worked as a contractor for that agency for several years. His service to the company ended in the year 2000.

It has been reported by NBC Washington that Bennett was involved in the May 1999 NATO bombing of the Chinese embassy bombing in Belgrade during NATO involvement in Yugoslavia. Three Chinese citizens were killed in the attack. This accidental bombing was later blamed on an outdated map that showed the embassy at its prior location. The CIA later took responsibility for the error, firing one officer and reprimanding 20 more. It is unclear at this time the level of Bennett’s involvement and whether or not it might be linked to the deadly attack that took his life.

The Sheriff's Office continues to investigate the murder of William Bennett and the assault on his wife, Cynthia Bennett. They are receiving assistance from several organizations in the investigation.

He was killed by a gangster, who was just trying to kill another gangster, but with an outdated photograph.

As to the background of the murder of former CIA man Bill Bennett, a former counter intelligence agent and associate of his, Dr. Slobodan Mitric, writer of among other books "Operation Twins", (see: www.willehalm.nl) wrote the following commentary a few says ago, which he posted today on his World Police weblog http://cid-126ff386f6322548.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!126FF386F6322548!562.entry

"Today, April 20, 2009, is the Serbian Easter. And I have a journalistic gift for you.
On March 22 last in the U.S., Bill Bennett was murdered.
Bill was one of the CIA men, who in the eighties was given documents about terrorist plans to attack vital targets in the U.S.: Twin Towers in New York, the Senate, the White House, the Pentagon in Washington, a nuclear power plant in the U.S. etc...
Bill was killed when he and his wife Cindy were walking by a number of masked men with sticks which they used to beat him to death...
It is unofficially known that Bill was responsible for the attack by "mistake" by U.S. aircrafts on the Chinese embassy in Belgrade. Through this "failure", 20 other CIA people were fired from the CIA in 2000.
Bill was directly involved in that bombing by giving the U.S. Air Force the plans to bomb that target and then maintaining that the wrong target was bombed ...
Fiddlesticks of course. Bill gave his top spy in Belgrade with the code name "Tsar" (now also murdered) a miniature transmitter to plant in a military complex in New Belgrade. "Tsar" was a KGB / CIA double agent with good connections as well to the IDB [Dutch Foreign Intelligence] in The Hague. "Tsar" deliberately placed that miniature transmitter not in the military complex, as was meant, but in the Chinese Embassy ... This discredited the U.S. and only at the last minute it could be prevented that through this failure the conflict was widened ...
Anyway, Bennett was liquidated, because according to the perpetrators evidence concerning the terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers must at all costs be suppressed...
I hope you can undertake further investigative journalism for TROUW [Dutch national Christian newspaper in Amsterdam, founded by the resistance during WWII], or are your hands and feet tied there?
It is not an everyday news item that a CIA head was killed in the U.S. and on top of that such an important person ...
Whose turn is it now...
Except Bill Bennett also former President Bush ... Bill Webster (former FBI director, who later became CIA director) knew exactly when and by whom the terrorist attack on U.S. targets with aircraft was carried out... "

In a conversation, Dr. Mitric did not rule the possibility that Bennet was indeed ruthlessly murdere by ordinary thugs, because a professional CIA hit team would have acted quite differently.

John, this is great investigative work. No wonder you are writing for the Loudoun Independent. It seems like you've watched one too many episiodes of 24. Don't you think if the Chinese would have done this they would have done at least a better job. Leaving witnesses is not a really "Professional" job.

Anonymous (not verified)

What witness, his wife? She will not open her mouth for fear of the same. Please know that Loundon County (with all of it's government personnel) is a hot spot for any kind of "HIT". Please do not disbelieve what you see in front of you because you also saw it on 24. 24 got it from somewhere, believe that.

Those of us who have been around the circles of deciet, counter-deciet and counter-counter deciet, might think that the "thugs in ski masks" using sticks as weapons might be a brilliant way to not leave a trail but sent a message. I don't think its "too 24 " at all and I work in the real world. This event was even better than a "false flag op...it was a "NO FLAG" op and the folks who were supposed to get the message certainly got it.
I would think that those who had done it got counter-intel that a similar thing was about to happen and gave a warning. We call it "body chess." The next move would be Predator missle etc.

Smart op. I think not using a silenced Mark III, ricen, a Makarof etc. was a good way to go. I think we all know who and why but thugs with sticks plus a witness leads back nowhere and gives the same message. The Chinese will now have to deal with the kid gloves off when we hit back. I'd like to give them a Preditor missle up the taiilpipe of thier little dope in Pyong Yong

This is idiotic to say the least. He was a contractor, quit trying to connect him to the CIA, and blaming the agency for his death. A contractor does not have the same clearance, if any all, as an agency employee. It was a random attack, be done with it. May he rest in peace, let his wife heal.
