"...God bless my family. I love my wife & children more than
life itself. Everything I do is for the future of all my
children. They may not understand why I have sacrificed so much,
why I am so dedicated to this work; but someday they will. I
want them to know they are the most important People in my life,
and how very, very much I love them..." - William Cooper

EAGER, AZ - William Cooper has been killed and an Apache County
sheriff's deputy wounded in a shootout, authorities said.

William Milton Cooper, 58, of Eager, had hosted a talk show

which receives it via phone from his home in St. Johns.

The deputy, whose name was being withheld by authorities, was
shot twice in the head while trying to arrest Cooper, a state

killed by another officer.

Several deputies were attempting to arrest Cooper, who was armed
with a handgun, said Officer Steve Volden, a spokesman for the
DPS, which was investigating the shooting.

He said details of the shooting would be released later today.

The deputy was in critical condition at a Phoenix hospital early
today, Volden said.

Cooper was one of the most widely known Shortwave radio

Internet. "William Cooper may be one of America's greatest
heroes and this story may be the biggest story in the history of
the world." said Mills Crenshaw, KTALK, Salt Lake City.

William Cooper was reared in an Air Force family. As a child he
lived in many different countries, graduating from Yamato High
School in Japan. Since he has traveled through or lived in many
different foreign countries Mr. Cooper has a world view much
different than most Americans.

William served with the Strategic Air Command, United States Air
Force. He held a secret clearance working on B-52 bombers,
KC-135 refueling aircraft, and Minuteman missiles. William
received his Honorable Discharge from the United States Air
Force in 1965.

William joined the United States Navy fulfilling a dream
previously frustrated by chronic motion sickness. He served
aboard the submarine USS Tiru (SS-416), USS Tombigbee (AOG-11),
Naval Support Activity Danang RVN, Naval Security and
Intelligence Camp Carter RVN, Danang Harbor Patrol RVN, Dong Ha
River Security Group RVN, USS Charles Berry (DE-1035),
Headquarters Commander in Chief Pacific Fleet, USS Oriskany
(CVA-34).

Cooper was a member of the Office of Naval Security and
Intelligence serving as a Harbor and River Patrol Boat Captain
at Danang and the Dong Ha River Security Group, Cua Viet,
Republic of Vietnam. William Cooper was awarded several medals
for his leadership and heroism during combat including two with
"V" for Valor.

He served on the Intelligence Briefing Team for the Commander In
Chief of the Pacific Fleet. William was the Petty Officer of the
Watch and designated KL-47 SPECAT operator in the CINCPACFLT
Command Center at Makalapa Hawaii. There he held a Top Secret,
Q, SI, security clearance.

William Cooper achieved the rank of First Class Petty Officer,

William held the position of Executive Director of Adelphi

National Technical College. Mr. Cooper was the National
Marketing Coordinator for National Education and Software.

He produced several documentaries covering subjects such as the
Kennedy assassination and secret black projects that have built
flying disk shaped craft. William is an internationally
acclaimed radio personality broadcasting the Hour Of The Time on
WBCQ worldwide short-wave 7.415 MHz from 10 PM until 11 PM
Eastern Standard Time (0300 to 0400 UTC) Monday through Thursday
nights.

William Cooper is the author of Behold A Pale Horse. The book
has become the best selling underground book of all time. It is
read and promoted by word of mouth by People of all races,
religions, and nationalities.

Mr. Cooper is a world class lecturer, one of the few other than
superstars, monarchs, and Popes who have appeared at Wembly in
London. William Cooper has lectured for 10 years in every State.

William Cooper, Trustee, has founded for Harvest Trust, the CAJI
News Service, VERITAS national full size newspaper, The
Intelligence Service, Harvest Publications, and has helped over
700 low power FM affiliate stations get equipped and on the
air... including the station he managed as Trustee for the
Independence Foundation Trust, 101.1 FM Eagar, Arizona,
broadcasting to 7,000 people.

Under his leadership Harvest Trust ventured into the publishing
trade. The first book under the Harvest Trust imprint was
Oklahoma City: Day One by Michele Marie Moore... the definitive
classic on the Oklahoma City bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah
Federal Building on April 19, 1995.

Shortly after the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah federal
building Rush Limbaugh read a White House memo on the air during
his broadcast which named William Cooper, "...the most dangerous
radio host in America". Mr. Cooper considers William Clinton's
pronouncement the greatest compliment that he has ever received.

William Cooper's FBI file, promulgated by the investigation
required by his security clearances while in military service,
was one of those unlawfully in possession of the White House in
what has become known as, "Filegate". Shortly after this
discovery President Clinton ordered all federal agencies to
begin investigation, persecution, and prosecution of Mr. Cooper
to shut him up.

After years of filing FOIA requests and researching the IRS
William Cooper brought suit against the IRS in Federal District
Court in Phoenix Arizona to force the IRS to produce proof of
jurisdiction and delegation of authority which the IRS was
unable to do. To short circuit Mr. Cooper's attempt to reveal
the true nature of the criminal IRS, and to carry out the orders
of the White House, the agency lied to a Grand Jury, not
allowing William Cooper to testify, and secured indictments
against Mr. Cooper and his wife Annie. This ploy successfully
stopped Mr. Cooper from continuing his suit against the criminal
IRS for fear of being arrested.

In 1998 VERITAS and Harvest Publications was sold to Hallmark
Creative Corporation along with the copyright and all rights to
all written material produced or ever to be produced by William
Cooper including Behold A Pale Horse and Oklahoma City: Day one.
Hallmark Creative Corporation has contracted to insure this
material is always available to the public.

In 1998 copyrights and all rights to all audio and video
material produced or ever to be produced by William Cooper was
sold to Excel Studios Corporation including the Hour Of The Time
broadcast. Excel Studios has contracted to insure this material
is always available to the public.

In March of 1999, Cooper William Sent his family out of the
United States for their security. He lived and worked alone with
his two dogs, one rooster, and one chicken.

William Cooper Update

Sierra Times 11.06.01


Details are still sketchy on what caused the Cooper shootout on
November 5, 2001, but a fax sent from the Apache County
Sheriff's office sheds some more light on the subject. William
Cooper was fatally wounded during a late night gunfight.
Contrary to what was reported earlier, it was not a SWAT raid,
but a simple confrontation between police and Cooper. One Apache
County deputy, Robert Martinez was critically wounded in the
exchange. Here's what we know so far:

According to the Sheriff's report, several deputies were
positioned outside the Cooper residence to serve a warrant for
Aggravated Assault and two counts of endangerment. Cooper had
stated numerous times in the past that he would not surrender to
law enforcement via his website and shortwave radio. Obviously,
law enforcement took him seriously. The showdown began at
approximately 12:15 pm local time.

After leaving his residence in his vehicle, the report states
that Cooper confronted plain clothed deputies a short distance
away. "As Cooper drove back to his residence, deputies attempted
to stop him using a fully marked patrol vehicle to block the
driveway. Cooper refused to stop or comply with verbal orders by
the deputies", according to the report.

Cooper then drove around the patrol car to evade the arrest, and
the report stated that he tried to run over one of the deputies
en route back to his residence. Cooper was then followed a short
distance to his residence where this time he was confronted by
uniformed deputies. "After refusing once again to comply with
the deputies orders, Cooper exited his vehicle and began running
toward the house, firing shots with a handgun toward the
deputies", the report said. No where in the report did it
mention that Cooper only had one leg - the other lost in combat
long ago. Cooper died on the scene.

When Deputy Martinez took a head shot, officers returned fire,
the report said. According to the Sheriff's office, "the surgery
on Martinez went well" , but the condition is still critical.
There was a positive history written up about Martinez in the
report, but nothing positive about Cooper, of course.

Cooper had made it known that he would take action against law
enforcement from years back stating, "trespassers will be shot
on discovery." He also denied violating any laws during that
period as well. Cooper has a history of harassing and
threatening local residents with deadly force, according to the
report. He was recently charge with aggravated assault and
endangerment, as well as wanted by the U.S. Marshall's Service
on unrelated felony charges. Cooper had spent the last month
challenging the government's claims about what caused the
destruction of the World Trade Center on September 11.

Most who knew of Cooper all state that he was a hard man to get
along with - if at all. His demeanor and attitude was
"unfriendly" at best. Although state-sponsored media called
Cooper a "national militia leader", no one has yet to come
forward who was under his command, nor has anyone to this point
come forward to claim his 'militia rank'. None of those who knew
Cooper and spoke to Sierra Times wanted to go on the record, but
the best statement was, "he was a son-of a bitch, but he was our
son-of-a bitch". The new Patriot Act of 2001 has many wondering
if the Cooper take down was just the beginning in silencing the
voices on opposition in the Country. "Are they just starting in
alphabetical order?" one person asked. Cooper was best known for
being the first to provide evidence of explosives being found
inside the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995,
including the type of explosive used.

According to his webmaster, "It appears at this time to be
totally unrelated to the disputes he had with the federal
government." There were no federal agents involved with the
gunfight.
