Pluristem Placentas,James Dale Davidson,Leumi Bank Israel Holocaust Victims and U.S. Penny Stock Fraud
29 Jul 2007
Below is a link to and quote from James Dale Davidson and his newsmax.con's spamming for the illegal Israeli-U.S. penny stock pump and dump scam called Pluristem that hopes to get 'oil from placentas' according to the tasteless con artist Davidson.As you will see if you follow the link the Beltway connected James Dale Davidson received 20 million of the Israeli scamsters' U.S. penny stock shares. If, for instance, he can keep the price at or above 5 U.S. cents as he sells or 'dumps' his 20 million shares he will make a million dollars or more on this one penny stock fraud alone ! And that can buy more influence in Washington !
Pluristem Placentas,James Dale Davidson,Leumi Bank Israel Holocaust Victims and U.S. Penny Stock Fraud

Ezra Pound and James Dale Davidson laugh.....

Note that James Dale Davidson,(infamous for his baseless claim that Bill Clinton killed his childhood friend Vince Foster),has even solicited vulnerable retired folks for 'donations' for his National Taxpayers Union in Alexandria,Virginia but requested the donations be sent to his own mail box rather than to the National Taxpayers Union address at 108 N. Alfred Street,
Alexandria, Virginia 22314.But now he returns to the scene of many of his crimes ,(both political and economic),at the National Taxpayers Union office building in Alexandria that he now uses for his latest mail and cyber fraud penny stock operation that he calls,'Outside the Box',and where he now touts an Israeli 'biotech' penny stock pump and dump called Pluristem,(that is incorporated in the U.S. and not Israel where defrauding Israelis by Israelis would be frowned upon),that,according to Davidson,strives to get 'oil' from 'placentas' !

His and Steve Forbes' ,et.al.'s,National Taxpayers Union,is conveniently located near the Securities Exchange Commission Chairman Christopher Cox's office in case any problems might arise during the pump and dump of any of his numerous uncounted U.S. penny stock frauds and money laundering operations over the many years since he and Bill Bonner and the Lord William Rees-Mogg opened their Agora Inc office in Baltimore in 1979 to do basically what Davidson is doing now from his NTU office - i.e.-running a penny stock pump and dump operation !

Securities Exchange Commission Chairman Christopher 'Naked Shorts' Cox,(who receives a monthly briefing from penny stock con artists at the CIA),has gone on record to warn of the dangers of 'naked short selling',which is really all a lie created by James Dale Davidson,David Patch,Patrick Byrne, et.al. to divert attention from massive illegal penny stock dumping and manipulation by a truly organized criminal operation around the world using unaudited and worthless U.S. penny stock shares as 'cash'.This may even have caused the collapse of Refco and banks connected to it such as Bawag of Austria and Bancafe Bank of Guatemala,etc........What are 'losses' on their books are fraudulent profits to the international U.S. penny stock and worthless paper industry that takes its fraudulent profits and leaves losses on the books of banks and brokerages it uses..

Al Jazeera has even allowed known Wall Street stock manipulator and hedge fund operator Max Keiser to do a video for their Qatar satelite television english site to fraudulently claim 'naked short selling' or counterfeit shares from some nebulous source is causing U.S.penny stocks to lose there share value.In truth an elite group are allowed to use worthless U.S.penny stocks for international fraud and money laundering particularly in the Middle East and Israel post 9/11 !

Actually the SEC Chair Christopher 'WMDS' Cox who lied as House Homeland Security chief about 'WMDS' in Iraq sending thousands to their deaths and whose Latham Watkins law firm in California represented Enron against California's citizens even taped his lie about the supposed dangers of 'naked short selling',(to cover up for penny stock criminals that includes many Republcan contributers),on a bloomberg.con video that is on youtube for the record.The sleezy business professor,James Angel of Georgetown University,who had already starred in a scammy 'naked short selling' penny stock video with Patrick Byrne,Senator Bob Bennett and a 'Bob O'Brien( who helped found NCANS or National Coalition Against Naked Short Selling), also appeared with Cox and the corrupt Houston attorneys John O'Quinn and James Wes Christian in the bloomberg.con video on the dangers of 'naked shorting'.New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg should himself be ashamed.

Adnan Kashoggi of Iran Contra and Ronald Reagan and George Herbert Walker Bush presidencies now claims collapse of his U.S. penny stock scam called GenesisIntermedia,(that the U.S.SEC should have prosecuted and convicted him for long ago), was not the result of his own stock manipulation and fraud but instead was a victim of 'naked short selling' ! And of course there is the Al Sabah royaly of Kuwait who owned and operated Securacom 'security' firm along with lesser known brother Marvin Bush that guarded both Dulles Airport as well as the WTC on 9/11 !

Even so I'm not sure Arab involvement in U.S.penny stock fraud even azpproximates that of Israelis using U.S. penny stocks for illegal pump and dump scams, money laundering and to defraud Americans even approximates that of Israelis.The U.S.SEC keeps this partially hidden, so maybe I would be surprised.It was an Israeli U.S. penny stock fraud,ICTS International, that was 'guarding' Logan Airport near Boston where two planes involved in the 9/11,WTC, Pentagon, etc. didaster flew out from.

How You Can Profit From:
“An Oilfield in the Placenta”

May 2007

New Discovery Lets You Make A Fortune Without Ethical Controversy With Stem Cells From Umbilical Cord Blood

Why you could pocket 30 times more profit from an obscure Israeli biotech discovery than from a 40 billion barrel oil find at Prudhoe Bay…

By James Dale Davidson


If you have shied away from profiting from the immense promise of stem cells to treat disease because of moral concern over extracting stem cells from fetal tissue, pay close attention. You can now invest with a clear conscience. An Israeli entrepreneur, Zami Aberman, has discovered, "an oilfield in the placenta." His little company, Pluristem Life Systems (OTCBB: PLRS) has made a discovery which is potentially more valuable than Prudhoe Bay.


Sounds crazy, right? Not really. The exciting news is that you may be able to make more money from Pluristem’s "placental blood" stem cell discovery than you could have made four decades ago from ARCO’s discovery of a vast, untapped oil basin in Alaska’s remote Prudhoe Bay.

Back in 1968, when Atlantic Richfield, aka ARCO, discovered the Prudhoe Bay oil field, ARCO was already one of America’s largest oil companies. Its stock was selling for almost $100 per share. Even before the Prudhoe discovery, investors expected great things of ARCO, so most of its later success was already priced into the stock.

Yes, ARCO’s share price skyrocketed from $98.375 to $184.00 on news of what proved to be one of the major oil discoveries ever. The net result was that if you had rightly anticipated the discovery and invested soon enough, you could have almost doubled your money. $10,000 would have bought you about $100 shares of ARCO, which in turn, could have become $18,704, assuming no commission costs. So on an investment of $10,000 in 1968, you could have pocketed as much as $8,704 for anticipating the oil find of the century.

Doesn’t sound like much to get excited about, does it? Making $8,704 would hardly change your life. This is why it is actually misleading to compare Pluristem’s placental stem cell discoveries with striking oil, even a 40 billion-barrel field. The Pluristem opportunity really doesn’t compare – because it is so much bigger.......

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

'The best time to buy is when there is blood in the streets',is approximately what Nathan Rothschild is reputed to have advised perhaps in response to the French Revolution.Strange that James Dale Davidson would use that phrase,'Blood In The Streets' as the title for a book he wrote with his co-author the Lord William Rees-Mogg of the UK several years ago.

Davidson who pretends to be repulsed apparently by ALL 'Rothschilds' appears an unlikely candidate to name the title of a book after words of advise from one he claims to detest,Nathan Rothschild.But then again this hypocrite was running a U.S. penny stock scam called Nannaco with supposed,(a lie),Saudi property and contracts and now he is helping an Israeli U.S. penny stock fraud,with Leumi Bank of Israel connections called Pluristem,to do the same.

And this penny stock scam is yet another
'biotech',one of Davidson's favorite penny stock frauds. Endovasc with its hailed or 'touted' Stanford University nicotine patents,(both for 'angiogenesis' as well as 'stem cell recruitment' )that was used to defraud American investors through vFinance and Charles Schwab and LOM of Bermuda as well as a CIA connected boiler room called Bellador Group in Kuala Lumpur with Dubai connections ! Endovasc was also used by Israeli purveyors or pimps of U.S. penny stock scams known as the Grin brothers,(Eugene and David and Abraham),with their Union Bank of Israel and Bawag Bank of Austria connections among others....Genemax was another James Dale Davidson 'biotech' pump and dump of worthless shares to defrauded investors using a supposed 'cancer vaccine' developed by the University of British Colombia.

And there have been more,so many illegal promotions of worthless shares in phoney fraudulent companies dating back MANY YEARS.After dumping millions of worthless Endovasc and Genemax shares on investors there was of course no SEC investigation and both fraudulent 'biotech' companies claimed they weren't an illegal 'pump and dump' but were 'naked shorted' with 'counterfeit' shares !

Below is from James Dale Davidson's own far right wing internet 'news' site called www.newsmax.com . While I highly don't recommend it and would use it as an example of using the media or internet for what I call ' cultural malnutrition' or disinformation,which is Mr. Davidson's specialty aside from stock fraud and I believe money laundering through stock manipulation,it is most telling for its hinting at Mr.James Dale Davidson's true role and power behind the scenes in the Beltway and why he seems to get by almost with murder there.

It should be noted that Davidson just used his right wing newsmax.com, that he has admitted or bragged of founding in the past,to promote the Israeli 'biotech' pump and dump scam,Pluristem.

Note however this was not disclosed in the promotion and newsmax only named Davidson as a 'sponser' while it graciously provided him space to promote the Israeli-U.S. penny stock fraud called Pluristem.He also disclosed the scammy 'company' gave him 20 million of their worthless shares for his efforts.I am still uncertain how much the Israelis and their stock promoters paid ex CIA Frank Carlucci but seeing as he has headed the Carlyle military-industrial hedge fund of George Herbert Walker Bush, et.al.,I would presume he has been handsomely rewarded for lending a hand to J.D. Davidson's,Jonathan Honig's and the Israelis' Pluristem illegal pump and dump scam and possible money laundering operation !

Note,while Davidson is full of himself and a liar and a major U.S. penny stock fraud,one can at times read between the lines of his dishonesty and his'newsmax' with his selected writers writing copy of which he approves sometimes spill the beans without themselves realising it.Such is the case with Ruddy and Ryan below showing Davidson's disdain and delusions of superiority to his foe Bill Clinton in the this article from 2000.It must be remembered he claims to have been a supporter during Clinton's first election even though the writing below indicates he had very close ties to Papa Doc or 'Poppy' Bush in the 1980's.

And note below how newsmax writers make Clinton appear to be buttering up to James Dale Davidson,a fellow Oxford student Rhodes scholar, to try and get his 'economic secrets',( which as anyone who has done any investigation of his many penny stock pump and dump scams knows is simple fraud),usually penny stock fraud. And penny stock shares are perhaps if not the most significant manner of laundering money,(they are a multi billion dollar anual 'business')they are certainly one of the easiest, particularly with Beltway connections and a complicit SEC and connections in the SEC and the Beltway. Also a google search of the co-author below,
'Christopher Ruddy' and 'Clinton', will remind you it was Ruddy who was employed by Rupert Murdoch's New York Post and then by Richard Mellon Scaife and James Dale Davidson as their selected Clinton smear writer,particularly in their fraudulent political smear claim,'Clinton killed Vince Foster'. Penny stock fraud and political fraud or lying have a lot in common
which may explain why they go together so well.:

Economist: Inflation Rate Is Double Official Number
Christopher Ruddy and Ryan Troup
March 14, 2000
Jan. 20, 1993, and Bill Clinton was not president 24 hours when he saw James Dale Davidson at one of several Washington Inaugural Balls.
Clinton quickly waved past the salutations and congratulations. "Jim," he said, "You may able to help me."

Davidson, a Clinton campaign donor, a financial writer, then head of the National Taxpayers Union and someone who had known Clinton for years from annual retreats at the Hilton Head Renaissance weekends, nodded with agreement.

"I think the Bush people were cooking the economic numbers in the months before the election," Clinton said, continuing, "Do you think you could put together a report for me on how they did it?"

Davidson agreed but the thought went racing through his mind, "This man’s not president for one day and he’s already trying to figure out how to fix the books."

Since his inauguration Clinton has survived an avalanche of scandals that would have crushed any other mortal.

One factor cited by both Clinton critics and friends has been the booming U.S. economy and the longest bull market in the history of the world.

"It’s the economy, stupid!" was the Carville-inspired slogan of the Clinton-Gore ’92 campaign. The slogan has become the White House mantra for two terms.

www.newsmax.com/articles/

So it is obvious from Davidson's own self glorifying
'newsmax' that Mr.Davidson's claim to fame in the Beltway is 'cooking the books' apparently for 'Poppy' Bush during his and Reagan's terms in office and if you know the history of that period of Iran-Contra and drugs for guns into Mena, Arkansas and elsewhere you would know Davidson's self admitted and fraudulent 'talents' were well received.

Coincidentally Mr.Davidson's and Bill Bonner's Agora Inc. of Baltimore with fraudulent websites coming and going all over the internet,began in 1979 before the internet and the invention of his more recent fraudulent new claim of shares being 'electronically counterfeitted' but just in time for a great need to 'cook the books' in the Reagan-Bush era that funded much of its illicit war efforts in Nicaragua,Central America and elsewhere with illicit or non Congressional budget and ' off the record ' income.Remember the Congress was controlled by the Democrats who did not approve or allocate funds for the Reagan-Bush war in Central America,etc..Also their was the Iraq-Iran war that was so good for the Beltway's 'masters of war' as Bob Dylan might call them with the Pakistani BCCI scandal and loot to be stolen,etc.........
....................

Note below from James Dale Davidson's own newsmax.com that those around Davidson were expecting Colby's death months in advance and when it finally came Colby was still in the employ of James Davidson although Davidson tried to place the blame on his nemesis,(who he had supported to be the U.S. president after his no doubt successful years financially of backing Reagan-Bush and serving their money laundering activities),Bill Clinton,just as he had accused Clinton of killing Vince Foster a year before that !

www.newsmax.com/articles/
William Colby's Death Mystery

It was March of 1996. My cell phone rang. My literary agent was on the line.

"Cross Colby off the list. He's dead."

"Colby is dead," I said with some shock.

"Yes, I just heard on the radio he died in a car crash," my agent said.

I did not know former CIA Director Bill Colby, nor did my agent. But we both knew James Dale Davidson, editor of the investment newsletter Strategic Investment. Davidson was not only an associate of Colby's, but Colby had worked for Davidson as a contributing editor for his newsletter.

At the time of my agent's call, he was attempting to find a publisher for my book on the Vince Foster case. We still had no publisher, and my agent had floated the idea of William Colby writing the proposed book's foreword. This would serve several purposes. Colby, as a former CIA chief, would give the book some credibility with a publisher.

Colby had been a key figure in the Watergate scandal after he refused to allow the CIA to block the FBI probe on the Watergate burglary. Colby could not be accused of being part of a right-wing conspiracy. After leaving the CIA, he argued for unilateral disarmament and became a fixture at the left-wing Institute for Policy Studies.

My agent thought Colby might be open to the idea. After all, he worked for Davidson and Davidson openly claimed Foster was murdered, pointing the finger at the Clinton White House.

But now the idea of a Colby foreword seemed lost.

I called Davidson and asked him if he had heard the news about Colby. His voice became strained. He sounded stunned when I told him.

But, of course, Colby had not died that March. He died a month later. My agent was wrong. To this day, he swears he heard something, and to this day, we laugh about the Jungian wrinkle in time. Davidson was peeved at me for the false report, as he well should have been.

On April 29, 1996, the wires flashed with hot news: Former CIA Director William Colby had disappeared from his country home on the Wicomico River in Maryland........

Subject : carlucci,davidson,honig,powerchannel

Frank Carlucci has joined Davidson and Fox New's 'Capitalist Pig', Jonathan Honig,in an Israeli
'placenta stem cells' penny stock scam incorporated in the U.S. of course because such fraud would not be so openly permitted upon Israeli citizens - only Americans,where the shares are ultimiately pumped and dumped.
And paradoxical that Davidson,Honig and Carlucci(of Carlyle) et.al. are touting the use of stem cells from placentas when the Rupublican Party and W Bush that Davidson's newsmax was formed to promote has blocked virtually all funding for stem cell research as it is !And just where do the boys from their Israeli mafia plan to get these placentas anyway - from the bodies of dead bombed Iraqi or Afghani women they find along the road ?

But note below that Davidson,Honig and Steve Lampert,et.al.'s PowerChannel did indeed make the fraudulent claim of PWRC's shares being 'naked shorted' just as Davidson made that same claim for Endovasc and Genemax,both of which were probably manipulated through t LOM of Bermuda's Charles Schwab and VFinance accounts among others.And in the case of Endovasc the corrupt SEC and its corrupter Chairman Christopher 'Naked Shorts' Cox allowed Bellador Group that probably has or had Davidson and CIA connections to deal the worthless shares of Endovasc,China Wireless and the CIA's and Washington D.C.'s on 'IT' public company SRA International in Kuala Lumpur,Dubai or Cyprus,etc..

Sent to Gary Weiss,a Forbes writer who covers,(not very well),the penny stock naked short selling' scam but never mentions Steve Forbes pal James Dale Davidson and appears so far to be covering up for him.:

Gary,
Below is a press release from PWRC, another James Dale Davidson,Jonathan Honig,et.al. pump and dump that claimed to be 'naked shorted'.This pr like the old NAANSS website once run out of Genemax's Blaine, Washington office has now been pretty much disappeared except for this.
At least we know that J.D.Davidson doesn't mind working with 'Jews' as long as they are corrupt and steal from Holocaust victims and U.S. penny stock fraud victims.

Gary do you think Davidson was running frauds through Israel previously or only since the Cerberus boys invested in the Leumi Bank ? Or do you believe Pluristem of those supposed Israeli researchers and J.D.Davidson and Frank Carlucci is legit ?
Oh it appears Jonathan Honig may not be Jonathan Hoenig of Fox but Fox is still promoting NEWSMAX and thus lending tacit support to all this fraud.

Company One of Hundreds Listed on Exchange Without Prior Knowledge, Consent
and Authorization

NEW CITY, N.Y., June 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- PowerChannel, Inc. (BB:PWRC) today announced that it has been removed from the Berlin Stock Exchange. The Company learned late last week that it had been listed on the exchange without its prior knowledge, consent or authorization.

"As soon as we learned of the unsanctioned listing, our SEC counsel took the necessary steps to effect the successful removal from the Berlin Exchange," said Steve Lampert, PowerChannel CEO. "Apparently, information that we have come across has led us to believe that our Company, along with more than 200 U.S. publicly traded companies, were part of an organized effort by brokers to circumvent recent National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD) and Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) restrictions against so-called naked short selling. We believe this unconscionable act against our Company and its shareholders may have had a negative impact on our recent share price, and we are optimistic that the removal from this Exchange will allow our stock to trade in a more customary, regulated manner."

...............................

Below quote from James Dale Davidson upon the death of Ezra Pound in the 1970's.:

Even though Pound employed a muddled definition of "usury", this is a valid liberation concern. He simply lacked a sound theoretical base from which to develop a solution. In studying the causes of World War I, Pound reached much the same conclusion as that achieved by revisionist historians. He felt that the war was brought on by international profiteers. Like the John Birch Society, Pound considered the Federal Reserve to be a private corporation, and agitated for "government" takeover of the money supply. This is why he admired Mussolini. He believed Fascism would end inflation. "Mussolini," Pound wrote,"followed
Andrew Jackson in opposing the tyranny of state debt." Too bad he never read What Has Government 'Done To Our Money? Pound was off the mark, but not that far off. Although he was accused of Anti-Semitism, he made clear he was not opposed to Jews, only to the Rothschilds, who remain the prototype of scheming bankers. He said, "I am accused of Anti-Semitism. Why then do I respect Spinoza, esteem Montaigne as a writer, and work to re-establish the fame of Alex del Mar, who I believe was a Jew?" Although he erred in believing Fascism could eliminate inflation, Pound had an essentially accurate view of the evils of state control. "Socialism," he said, "is synonymous for imbecility because it wants to govern by multiplying bureaucracies, tyrannicaly controlling all minor activities . . ." Yes, there is much in Pound to delight a libertarian. What man who said "I have a total contempt for Marx and Freud," could be all bad? His understanding of space exploration seems more to the point than that of some self-processed libertarians. "You cannot live in a Sputnik and you cannot find your food in a Sputnik. What mankind needs is an internal harmony, which may balance the increase of brutality and desperation we are living through." True enough. And in an age when Bleeding-Heart liberalism has permeated everything, with myriad crackpot groups seeking subsidy and "reparations" from the society which has "held them down," it is still refreshing to read Pound. "No one in society," he wrote, "has any right to blame his troubles on anyone else. Liberal thought has been a mess mush because of the tendency to produce this state of mind." He did have a talent for language.

- James Dale Davidson,Ezra Pound, RIP
........................................
Nope,you won't find no 'bleeding heart liberalism' in Mr.James Dale Davidson.If he could he would gladly
open a factory to turn poor and Holocaust victims to 'oil'
just as he would anyone's 'placenta' he could get his hands upon.Both placentas(Jewish or otherwise) and 'securities' or stock buyers should beware of James Dale Davidson and his gang of thieves who generally have Washington,D.C. connections.

Do the 3 names in SEC filing (whose link is below),DAVIDSON JAMES,DAVIDSON JAMES D.,DAVIDSON JAMES DALE,all refer to just Davidson of National Taxpayers Union,etc.,or others ? Why would he or others use more than one form of his name on SEC filings ? Also just who is this
'WEINHOUSE,ISAAC' and hasn't he occasionally been a topic of conversationm on this board ? Is the
'COHEN LEONARD' listed herein the Canadian poet-musician !? I sure hope not but by now NOTHING would surprise me.

Davidson by the way is using his National Taxpayers Union address near the main SEC office in Alexandria,Virginia as his address for the Israel-U.S. Pluristem placenta penny stock pump and dump scam he is running with Frank Carlucci, Jonathan Honig and their Israeli mafia.....Just as he used that address for his MIVT or MIV Therapeutics pump and dump among others.Steve Forbes is no doubt proud and Rupert Murdoch's Fox News still uses Davidson's newsmax as a source.Ha.

Oh Davidson was mentioned as a 'sponser' of newsmax in its promotion of his and Honig's and Carlucci's and their Israeli mafia's placenta penny stock tout promotion.Was this similar to Davidson and the Lord William Rees-Mogg recommending LOM of Bermuda to their clients and readers of 'The Sovereign Individual' without disclosing their investment interest in LOM ? After all Davidson is a if not THE founder of newsmax,not just a 'sponser' as the newsmax promo alludes.

The Strange Career of Frank Carlucci
31 Jul 2007
http://www.wsws.org/articles/2002/mar2002/carl-m15.shtml


"Carlucci" bleeped from HBO version of Lumumba
Ex-CIA official threatened lawsuit
By Joanne Laurier

Home Box Office (HBO), the US cable television network, is currently broadcasting a censored version of Lumumba, the award-winning film about Patrice Lumumba, the first prime minister of independent Congo, assassinated by imperialist agents in January 1961.

Haitian-born director Raoul Peck’s work fictionally reconstructs Lumumba’s coming to power in 1960 and the intrigues which led to his brutal murder. The film shown on HBO is a version of the French-language original dubbed into English, which bleeps out the name of Frank Carlucci, a future deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and secretary of defense, in the dialogue and masks his name in the credits. At the time of Lumumba’s death, Carlucci was the second secretary at the US embassy in the Congo and, covertly, a CIA agent.

This attempt to keep Carlucci’s role in the Congo from television audiences follows the release of US government documents revealing that President Dwight Eisenhower ordered the CIA to murder Lumumba. Minutes of an August 1960 National Security Council meeting confirm that Eisenhower told CIA chief Allen Dulles to “eliminate” the Congolese leader. The official note taker, Robert H. Johnson, testified to this before the Senate Intelligence Committee in 1975, but no documentary evidence had been previously available to back up his claim.

Carlucci’s lawyers threatened Peck and distribution company Zeitgeist Films with legal action if the name of the former US official was not bleeped out of a scene that shows American Ambassador Clare Timberlake and Carlucci, along with Belgian and Congolese officials, plotting Lumumba’s assassination. Carlucci insisted that only the altered version of the film, with his name missing, could be used for mass market venues, such as television, video and DVD, allowing the original track to remain intact for theater showings. Zeitgeist officials said they were too small and weak financially to fight a case in court.

Carlucci is an immensely wealthy individual, with connections at the highest levels of the US government. Deputy chief of the CIA under Jimmy Carter and secretary of defense under Ronald Reagan, Carlucci is now chairman of the Carlyle Group, a private equity investment group with billions of dollars of assets in the defense industry. The company employs prominent ex-officeholders, such as former president George Bush, former British prime minister John Major and former president of the Philippines Fidel Ramos. Carlucci has the closest financial, political and personal ties to the Bush family. Other figures involved in Carlyle Group operations include former secretary of state James Baker, who headed up George W. Bush’s effort to block vote recounts in Florida in 2000 and hijack the presidential election. Carlucci has a long-term political relationship with his former classmate and wrestling buddy from Princeton, the present secretary of defense, Donald Rumsfeld.

At a January 24 screening of the film in New York held at the Council on Foreign Relations (CRF), publisher of Foreign Affairs magazine, Peck confirmed that the film had been changed in response to Carlucci’s legal threats. Despite considerable media presence at the event, during which Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen, for one, raised a question about Carlucci’s name being removed, virtually nothing has appeared in the mainstream media about the issue.

The WSWS spoke with freelance journalist Lucy Komisar, who attended the screening and wrote an article about Carlucci’s action for the Pacific News Service. She commented: “This is censorship. This is a story that he [Carlucci] does not want to talk about. Although he was not in charge [of the CIA’s Congo activities in 1960], he was involved in what was going on. It is a part of his history. The honorable thing to do would have been to acknowledge that the Americans helped in doing away with a man who could have helped that region—that they supported Mobutu, who for decades led a brutal dictatorship which caused enormous suffering. I think the incident shows the extremes to which people like Carlucci will go to cover up actions they know were wrong—even to censoring a movie.”

The panel at the CFR screening included Brian Urquhart, chief assistant to Ralph Bunche, who headed up the United Nations (UN) mission in Congo during the Lumumba crisis. According to Urquhart’s own account of the affair recently published in the New York Review of Books, he was in touch with Lumumba on nearly a daily basis until the latter broke off relations with Bunche. Urquhart’s article, as his statements at the film screening, depicted the UN as an independent, neutral force that was, albeit reluctantly, helping Lumumba.

Contrary to Urquhart’s version of events, Peck’s film depicts the UN as an instrument of the US and Belgium and an accessory to the campaign of subversion mounted by the imperialist powers against Lumumba and the newly indepdendent Congolese government. Lumumba invited in the UN “peacekeepers,” but broke contact with them when their role became clear. UN officials and troops, in turn, refused to take any action to prevent his murder.

Carlucci’s attack on the film dates back at least to last summer. At a July 25 screening of Lumumba in Washington, DC, he was a panelist along with Howard Wolpe, the former congressman and chairman of the House subcommittee on Africa. Carlucci called the subsequently censored scene in the movie “a cheap shot.” He did make a mild—and thoroughly cynical—criticism of the US role. “Did [the United States] handle him [Lumumba] right?” Carlucci asked. “It’s clear we were too strident,” he replied.

In an interview with Komisar, Carlucci claimed that the US had “no role whatsoever” in plotting Lumumba’s death. He referred to Madeleine Kalb’s book, The Congo Cables, and asserted, “You’ll find no references to me.” As Komisar notes, “Carlucci has a bad memory.” Not only does Kalb’s book refer to Carlucci, it describes “the efforts by the US Embassy and the CIA to topple Lumumba.” The book, she writes, “contains documents by [US ambassador] Timberlake and CIA chief Lawrence Devlin talking about their desire and efforts to stop Lumumba, and even Devlin’s unhappiness [about] one leader’s refusal to commit murder. The State Department’s official ‘Analytical Chronology of the Congo Crisis’ talks about a plan ‘to bring about the overthrow of Lumumba and install a pro-western government...Operations under this plan were gradually put into effect by the CIA.’”

In a letter to Peck, Belgian Ludo De Witte—author of the recent book, The Assassination of Lumumba —also made clear that Timberlake, Devlin and Carlucci worked together “on Congolese efforts to get rid of Lumumba.” De Witte further commented: “We know that Devlin and other US personnel in the capital were informed about the transfer of Lumumba to the Kasai or Katanga... Everybody knew that there were waiting some subcontractors to do the dirty job, and, given the rank and involvement of Carlucci in Lumumba-related activities from the US embassy, we may assume (although it’s not proven) that Carlucci knew of what equaled a death sentence for Lumumba.”

After leaving the Congo, Carlucci was in Brazil at the time of CIA and US State Department efforts to overthrow the Goulart government, which lead to a military coup in March/April 1964. He was the US ambassador to Portugal during the years of intense revolutionary crisis in 1974-77, before returning to Washington and assuming top posts in the military and intelligence apparatus.

Carlucci’s efforts to suppress his role demonstrates that US complicity in Lumumba’s death remains a sensitive issue. The American establishment does not care for anyone to know that its interventions—past, present and future—are guided by the economic and political interests of US capitalism and often carried out by criminal and bloody means.

The bleeping of Carlucci’s name from Lumumba is not simply a matter of covering up the past. Carlucci remains a major figure in both the US state and the American corporate world, as well as within the Republican Party. The US, moreover, is intensifying its intrigues in Africa, and a reminder of its dirty past complicates its present-day activities on the continent.

The crude censorship of the film underscores as well the increasingly open assault on democratic rights and freedom of expression in the US.

The Strange Career
of Frank Carlucci
By Francis Schor

In the past few months there has been a rash of media reports on the Carlyle Group, a private equity investment group with billions of dollars of assets in the defense industry and a roster of directors and consultants which includes not only well-known Reagan and Bush appointees but also international figures like John Major, the former Prime Minister of Great Britain, and Fidel Ramos, the former President of the Philippines.

The Chairman of the Carlyle Group, Frank Carlucci, was not only a former Secretary of Defense in the Reagan Administration, but a Deputy Director of the CIA during the Carter Administration. In fact, Carlucci's career in Washington provides some insight into the intersection between foreign and domestic policy in the Cold War years. Moreover, Carlucci's particular trajectory through the government and into private industry reveals much about the meaning and influence of the military-industrial complex in the past and continuing policies of the United States at home and abroad.

A critical part of Carlucci's career was spent as a foreign service officer during the 1950's and 1960's in such hot spots as the Congo and Brazil. He capped that foreign service career with a stint as Ambassador to Portugal from 1974-77, a key time in the history and development of the Portuguese revolution. Carlucci's navigation through these conflictual moments helps to situate the nuances of US cold war policies not only in these specific countries, but throughout the world.

As the Second Secretary in the US Embassy in the Congo during the time of the reign and consequent assassination of Patrice Lumumba, Carlucci was intimately involved in the US efforts to overthrow Lumumba's government. In the recent cinematic reconstruction of the life and times of the Congo's first elected prime minister, Lumumba by Haitian director, Raoul Peck, Carlucci is depicted as being part of a meeting of US, Belgian, and Congo officials plotting the murder of Lumumba. Claiming that this particular meeting was fabricated by the filmmaker, Carlucci did admit at a Washington premier of the film that US policy towards the Lumumba government was a bit "too strident."

The fact that CIA station chief Lawrence Devlin was under direct instructions from Secretary of State Dulles to seek the immediate removal of Lumumba is part of the historical record. There is even evidence to suggest that the actual hit on Lumumba came from the White House at Eisenhower's suggestion. In fact, there was an assassin hired by the US government, equipped with chemical weapons from Ft. Detrick, to use against Lumumba.

When Lumumba was captured in December 1960 after fleeing from house arrest by a former supporter and later vicious dictator of the Congo, Colonel Joseph Mobutu, the CIA probably helped to arrange for Lumumba's transfer to Katanga province where Katangan and Belgian henchman murdered Lumumba and disposed of his body.

Meanwhile, Carlucci was attempting to placate Lumumba supporters and draw them into a new coalition government. In the confusions that ensued, Carlucci found himself under house arrest and at odds with Clare Timberlake, the US Ambassador to the Congo who did not favor any involvement with Lumumba supporters. Fortunately for Carlucci, Timberlake was relieved of his ambassadorial post and replaced by Kennedy appointees whose liberal politics allowed for certain compromises with indigenous forces in Africa who might still serve the anti-communist alliance while facilitating US economic interests in the region.

Although Carlucci wasn't around for the mess that followed in the wake of UN intervention and the continuing zigs and zags of US policy in the Congo, he did wind up in Brazil in time for the overthrow of the Goulart government. The CIA and State Department were actively engaged in funneling money to opponents of Goulart and setting the stage for the eventual military coup in March and April of 1964.

Beyond his populist policies that threatened nationalization of US subsidies, Goulart was seen by Washington as "soft on communism" and "pro-Castro," indictments enough to spell his doom and put in place right-wing military dictators who would outlaw any political or union dissent for years. As a consequence of the military coup and its entrenchment, Carlucci gained a reputation as a "tough-guy" with the American Defense Attaché in Brazil, Colonel Vernon Walters.

By the end of the 1960s Carlucci had returned to Washington to become part of Nixon Administration, going from the Office of Economic Opportunity in 1969-71 to the Office of Management and Budget in 1971-72. He then was appointed Under Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare from 1972-74. Among the other key members of these departments of domestic pacification were Caspar Weinberger, who was a Carlucci mentor, and Donald Rumsfeld, a former college buddy and wrestling mate from Princeton. Both Weinberger and Rumsfeld would later become, as would Carlucci, Secretaries of Defense. The bureaucratic imperatives honed in these cabinet positions would further underscore the primacy of military Keynesianism in governmental policy.

After so many positions as an underling and gray bureaucrat, Carlucci burst onto the explosive stage of post-revolutionary Portugal as Ambassador. With the approval of CIA Deputy Director Vernon Walters and Henry Kissinger, Carlucci began immediately to ferret out potential communist sympathizers among the left-leaning young military officers who helped foment the revolutionary coup in Portugal in 1974.

However, unlike Kissinger, Carlucci was willing to work with Socialist Mario Soares not out of any sympathy for Soares' politics, but because from Carlucci's perspective Soares was the "only game in town" to prevent the most militant leftists from assuming power in Portugal. Carlucci managed to convince President Ford of his approach by working directly through Rumsfeld who was, at the time, the White House chief of staff. Carlucci's pay-off came when Soares won the Presidency in 1976, cementing ties with NATO and instituting IMF approved austerity measures.

Such successful machinations in Portugal earned Carlucci a position as Deputy Director of the CIA in the Carter Administration from 1978-1981. When insurgent forces in Iran and Nicaragua in 1979 toppled the Shah and Somoza dictatorships, Carlucci and the CIA had little ability to control the upheavals even though there were various clandestine efforts to thwart the revolutionary forces in these countries. On the other hand, the CIA certainly played a significant role in sponsoring anti-Soviet Mujaheddin, perhaps even suckering the Soviets into their disastrous campaign in Afghanistan.

Carlucci then made the transition to a procurer of new weapons as Deputy Secretary of Defense in the Reagan Administration under Caspar Weinberger from 1981-83. During this time, in response to wide-spread criticism of Pentagon waste and mismanagement, Carlucci developed proposals (known as the "Carlucci Reforms") to rationalize the process of weapons procurement. However, Carlucci's policies did not lower costs. They did, apparently, offer new start-up companies the opportunity to get involved in DoD pork, something that the Carlyle Group would take advantage of later on.

After a brief departure into the world of private business at Sears World Trade from 1983-86, Carlucci returned to become first an Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs in 1987. He then went on to become Secretary of Defense later than year until his resignation in 1989 when he went to work for the Carlyle Group.

As Secretary of Defense he worked closely with the Joint Chiefs of Staff and particularly the Chairman, Admiral William Crowe, Jr. (Crowe is now a chief stock-holder of the parent company of BioPort, the recently FDA approved monopoly holder of an anthrax vaccine. The Carlyle Group also apparently has stock holdings in Crowe's company.) While overseeing some cutbacks in the DoD, particularly military bases in the US, Carlucci was committed to expanding certain military appropriations in the area of new technology as a way of strengthening the US national security state and expanding NATO. Although willing to compromise with Congress on the Strategic Defense Initiative (encountering in the process a rebuke from Reagan), Carlucci maintained a determined stance of US supremacy in nuclear arms and nuclear-war-fighting capability.

While outside of government in the 1990's, Carlucci managed to circulate on the boards of various think-tanks, e.g. the RAND Corporation, and help promulgate reports on national security and defense that urged increases in defense spending and the use of US military might. Nonetheless, he, along with other former Secretaries of Defense, opposed sending ground troops to Bosnia, perhaps because there were no long-term prospects for security or economic advancements.

Certainly, Carlucci's tenure at the Carlyle Group has resulted in an expanded portfolio of defense industries. Among the defense industries that Carlyle holds is United Defense, a maker of missile launch systems for the US Navy. However, Carlyle's reach under Carlucci has expanded into a variety of new technologies in defense and non-defense industries, such as global communications.

For example, Carlyle is keen on cleaning up hazardous materials at military bases and nuclear waste. Buying firms not yet publicly traded that deal with such services, such as Duratek and EG&G, allows Carlyle to position these firms for government contracts and then cash in when they are publicly traded. Such influence-peddling is certainly not new to former government officials who use their ties to past and present administrations for private benefit.

Carlucci, of course, insists that he does not importune or lobby his old buddy Don Rumsfeld. Nonetheless, the money trail from Carlyle's portfolio to Rumsfeld's office at the Pentagon is pretty evident. In one major decision by Rumsfeld, revealed by New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, United Defense's 70-ton Crusader artillery system was saved from a potential budget cut. Surely, the proposed massive increase in spending for the Pentagon by the Bush Administration will benefit the Carlyle Group.

What has seemed most egregious to inquiring journalists and public interest groups has been Carlyle's consultants, like former President Bush, whose ties to ruling elites in Saudi Arabia (including the Bin Laden family) and South Korea have resulted in lucrative holdings and investments in these countries for Carlyle. As noted by the executive director of the Center for Public Integrity: "(Former President) George Bush is getting money from private interests that have business before the government...And, in a really peculiar way, George W. Bush could, some day, benefit financially from his own administration's decisions, through his father's investments." In fact, George W. benefited in the past from Carlyle by being put on the board of a Carlyle investment, Caterair, an airline-catering company during his Texas business career days.

Similar to the Enron situation, the Bush family and others have enriched their careers and political fortunes with their ties to the Carlyle Group. However, this is a scandal that still hasn't gained the attention and measures necessary to prevent its scandalous continuance.

Carlyle's cozy relationship with DoD insiders and other power-brokers is part of Carlucci's effective management of Carlyle. The global reach of Carlyle, while often hidden behind the veil of private investments, moreover is indicative of Carlucci's own experience with US imperial and military policies.

Like the subject of C. Vann Woodward's seminal study of racial oppression and exploitation in the South, The Strange Career of Jim Crow, Carlucci's "strange" career is representative of significant other pathological imperatives in US political culture. The residual effects and on-going commitments to imperialism and militarism in US society feed such opportunistic careerists as Frank Carlucci.

Until there is a massive movement to dismantle all of the institutions and ideas that sustain US imperialism and militarism, Frank Carlucci and his ilk will continue to profit and prosper at the expense of the well-being and very lives of people here and abroad.
