Crush Them With Force if Necessary, John G. Rancey Advises Doe: How One Man Evil Genius Ruined Liberia
“Once Liberia recieves her blank check of support from America it is possible to begin the last, but the most formidable task, the total elimination of potential opposition. As we agreed in our discussion, it may be anticipated the most vigorous opposition to your staying on wil come from Nimba County. You may be assured that the leading voice will be that of “your friend”, Thomas Quiwonkpa. I am convinced they are trouble makers who do not hesitate to organize themselves. You can recall Nimba wa the strongest hold of the PPP. Nimbaians seem to love politics, thus, the removal of Thomas and supporters from the army and positions of government must be gradual and most carefully planned. Regardless of the risk, you will agree that Thomas and the other “Nimba heroes” must be totally discredited, if not totally eliminated. I have no doubt that once these critical steps are taken it is certain the people of Liberia will overwhelmingly support a continuation of your leadership in 1985.”
