Chip Tatum talks to Ted Gunderson (ex FBI) about his history with the CIA (codenamed Pegasus) from soldier in Vietnam to drug runner and assassin. He also discusses his involvement with Iran Contra and his work for corrupt, drug running Presidents, Bush and Clinton.
Feb. 22, 1998 Gene “Chip” Tatum was a Vietnam Special Forces Air Combat Controller, Defense Intelligence Asset, and US Army special operations pilot flying classified missions during the US invasion of Grenada, Tatum was also involved in the Nixon Administrations relations with China, NASA’s Apollo Program, the Iran Contra Affair, and several other classified intelligence operations dating through through 1992 . Tatum was a member of the ultra-secret, international G7 run Pegasus “Hit Team” working directly for the sitting President. From sensitive and highly secret – and hitherto largely unknown – Special Forces covert operations in Cambodia, to wandering CIA asset, through to “black ops” activities in Grenada and Oliver North’s Iran-Contra “Enterprise,” and on to membership in an international “hit team,” Gene “Chip” Tatum has seen it all, done it all and is now telling it all. Tatum knows where the skeletons are buried. Above all he is aware that his testimony implicates serving and former US Presidents, plus a whole list of high government officials, and others, in a welter of nefarious activities – including assassination, blackmail, coercion, gun-running, money-laundering and Cocaine trafficking. Tatum, a lanky Floridian, turned whistle-blower following his arrest on a treason charge in 1995. The charge was both astonishing and patently ludicrous and resulted in a flurry of press interest with an article appearing in the Tampa Tribune on 4 May 1996. Incredibly, the charge was later dropped to be replaced by a fraud charge – a drastic step-down. Found guilty after his government appointed attorney refused to call any defence witnesses ,he was sentenced to serve a 15 month sentence. www.chiptatum.com Theodore L. Gunderson (November 7, 1928 – July 31, 2011) was an American Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agent In Charge and head of the Los Angeles FBI. According to his son, he worked the case of Marilyn Monroe and the John F. Kennedy cases. He was the author of the best-selling book How to Locate Anyone Anywhere.
Tatum claims to have been an assassin for George H. W. Bush who quit in 1992 after Bush ordered him to “neutralise” Ross Perot (a word he specifically clarified did not necessarily mean “assassinate”, but included “intimidate” or “blackmail”). Tatum reportedly became active as a whistleblower in 1995 after being charged with treason.
Tatum alleges others in the Pegasus of having killed Swedish Prime Minister Olaf Palme in 1986, using a South African assassin.
Recorded in 1998, this was the last interview former CIA black ops operative Chip Tatum did, as he disappeared shortly afterwards, and was rumoured to be dead until he resurfaced some years later in Columbia South America…
Absolutely fascinating stuff.
