CLINTON'S ROGUES GALLERY:

Arkansas State Medical Examiner Fahmy Malak quickly ruled the deaths "accidental," saying the boys were "unconscious and in deep sleep" due to smoking marijuana.
Wall Street Journal 4/18/96 ".Bill Clinton's gubernatorial administration assumed a role in the Ives and Henry case shortly after Dr. Malak's marijuana-induced accidental death ruling. Dr. Malak, an Egyptian-born physician appointed medical examiner during Mr. Clinton's first term, already had been buffeted by a number of controversial cases.. There was "insufficient evidence at this time for dismissal" of Dr. Malak, Dr. Elders announced. Clinton introduced a bill to make the state more competitive in hiring forensic pathologists--by giving Dr. Malak a $32,000 pay raise; the state Legislature later cut the raise by half. Ms. Wright says the salary was raised in anticipation of removing Dr. Malak and attracting a new medical examiner. Dr. Malak was eased out of his job and given a position as a Health Department consultant to Dr. Elders a month before Gov.


Who are responsible for the rise in violence and moral decay of our society?

Malak Video Excerpts

Fahmy Malak - Video Excerpts
It expanded to the medical examiner, Fahmy Malak." Fahmy Malak, Arkansas State Medical Examiner At the time, Fahmy Malak, Arkansas's state medical examiner, was the one responsible for ruling on cause of death. His plan was to rule the boys' deaths a double suicide. Without any supporting evidence, Malak ruled that the boys had each smoked more than twenty marijuana cigarettes and, in a psychedelic stupor, had fallen asleep on the tracks. It was later learned that the state crime lab never even tested for the concentration of marijuana and, in fact, had used a test on the boys' blood which was designed to be used on urine. Outside experts were shocked at the absurd ruling. The families' nightmare battle against the state medical examiner was made more difficult by Governor Clinton's public support of Malak. Burton's autopsy also revealed that Malak had mutilated Kevin's skull by sawing it in so many different directions that it was impossible to tell where the original skull fractures were. Malak also had completely dismantled Kevin's jaw bones. Was Malak trying to hide something? "Aformer employee at the crime lab has said he discovered what appeared to be evidence of a stab wound during the original autopsy, but was told, quote, 'not to worry about it.' Malak has refused all comment." Fahmy Malak In 1992, The Los Angeles Times tallied more than twenty additional cases where Dr. Malak had falsified evidence and ruled incorrectly. Incredibly, Malak had ruled suicide. In this case, Malak ruled the cause of death to be an ulcer. Although Milam's head had been clearly severed with a knife, Malak claimed the family pooch had bitten off the head, eaten the entire thing, and then regurgitated it. Malak says he tested the dog's vomit and found traces of Milam's brain and skull. Unfortunately for Dr. Malak, Milam's head was later found. Malak, it turns out, had made up the entire story. Media coverage of Malak's dishonest rulings resulted in a massive public outcry calling for his removal from office. "Based on the facts I have, I really feel that Arkansas owes Dr. Malak a great debt and a real apology." T.V. REPORTER (news footage) "Today the governor was asked if Malak should resign." His testimony compromised evidence in a lot of felony cases in Arkansas, and it was very transparent that Fahmy Malak had some kind of hold over Bill Clinton. Fahmy Malak

CLINTON'S ROGUES GALLERY:

In 1987 Arkansas State Medical Examiner Fahmy Malak ruled the deaths of teenagers Kevin Ives and Don Henry, found run over by a train, "accidental," saying the boys had smoked too much marijuana and fallen asleep on the tracks.
Then in 1989 with the controversy over the train deaths case growing, a commission headed by then Arkansas Department of Health Director Joycelyn Elders cleared Dr. Malak. In 1991, a month before Clinton announced his presidential run, Dr. Malak was promoted to a new job as a Health Department consultant to Dr. Elders." The state medical examiner, Fahmy Malak, ruled that the deaths were accidental--saying the two boys had smoked too much marijuana, and then had fallen asleep on the railroad tracks. CBN News 7/29/98 Gary Lane " But what caused Dr. Malak to arrive at such an outrageous determination of death? ut why would Mr. Clinton defend Malak, although his rulings had been questioned in more than 20 cases? The Los Angeles Times reported that Dr. Malak's ruling helped Clinton's mother avoid scrutiny in the death of patient Susie Deer. Dr. Malak was eventually removed as state medical examiner, but was given a job as a $70,000 per year consultant to the Arkansas Department of Health.
