The “Fodder note” 1988
By Mary W Maxwell
Anyone can present a show at the Adelaide Fringe – you don’t have to audition. I decided to present, comically, “A Pardoner’s Tale” and do as Chaucer’s Pardoner did – sell some pardons. This would mainly involve Port Arthur, but with Dee’s help it meant that 9-11 would get some attention.
By luck, I came into possession of an exculpatory document about Martin Bryant. I call it “the Fodder Note.”
This item changes everything for the fate of Martin Bryant, in my opinion. Just as Fiona Barnett’s video “Candy Girl” is going to create the biggest change Australia has ever known.
Why does this Amerigo-Oz girl, Mary Maxwell, think she is so specially positioned to deliver important information? It is simply, as I have said in the past at Gumshoe, that I hold the Rosetta stone to everything. And what might that Rosetta stone be? It is the MK-Ultra program of the 1950s.
I heard about it through the Internet and then tracked down any books and articles I could find. Eventually I attended a conference for survivors, as discussed in the Fringe video.
The subject of CIA involvement has been open source since Senator Frank Church’s hearings in the US in 1975. I do not yet know what the ASIO connection is.
Please take the Fodder Note seriously. It is not signed, thus it would “have no probative value” in court. That’s not a serious roadblock, however. For one thing, there is no court case going re Martin Bryant, is there? For another thing, we have the man – we habeas the corpus, so to speak — right there in Risdon Prison. He can verify the fodder note.
And we have you, the faithful public, ready to help him.
All is well.
