For over 20 years, Dr. William C. Chasey, an academic who had found his niche in the political labyrinth of Capitol Hill, was admired for his insightful political knowledge and skills in representing his prestigious clients. He enjoyed extraordinary access to members of the US Congress, knitting together one of the most powerful networks on the Hill. All that changed when Chasey was hired by a US company to forge communications between Libya and the US Congress.
A trip to Tripoli for discussions with then Libyan leader Muammar Qadhafi forever changed his life. Upon his return, his bank accounts were frozen, clients had been strongly discouraged from working with him, and even his close friends had been advised not to associate with him. The CIA, FBI, IRS, and federal judiciary conspired to coerce him into using his unique Libyan access to participate in a CIA-sponsored assassination plot against the two Libyans indicted for the bombing of Pan Am flight 103. Chasey's refusal to cooperate with the CIA resulted in a six-year FBI investigation and sting operation, financial ruin, criminal charges, and incarceration in federal prison.
