News :: War and Militarism
The Wars for OIL and Drugs Go on...
30 Jun 2006
President Bush and VICE President Cheney were defeated by the Supreme Court in overextension of the Executive powers yesterday. But the media and Congress have not done enough to find why their wars sacrifice American Citizens for their greed. This article attempts to show the truth, which is essential to the survival of our Constitution and way of life.
The fact that one man, Melvin Lattimore was present at all three attacks on America, and aided the attackers, at WTC 1, Oklahoma, and 911, with the knowledge of high governmental officials, and still walks the streets, makes me extremely angry and critical of the U.S. Government. Why has justice been obstructed?

This article contends that the motives, to exert global political

for oil and drugs, and to promote the interests of a foreign government, the Vatican. It goes on to show, the planners had to make it happen! The pipelines of Afghanistan and Iraq were too great a prize, to sacrifice the deaths of 3000 ordinary
Americans.



The war in Iraq has been fought on false pretenses. Cashing in on the beliefs of fundamentalist Christians made this war acceptable to them, for protecting the Holy land, and the place of Christ’s return, so a false flag operation was set up to blame the Muslims. It was engineered by VICE President Cheney, and President Bush, with the help of right wing members of the CIA, State department and Military.



OIL AND DRUGS

BY GREG PALAST Tikkun Magazine JULY/AUGUST 2006

June 26, 2006

Did the Jews do it?

The US Congress will open hearings this week on the War in Iraq -- a wee bit late one might think. But one question at the forefront of the minds of many on both the Left and the Right is sure not to be asked: Did the Jews do it? I mean, after killing Jesus, did the Elders of Zion manipulate the government of the United States into invading Babylon as part of a scheme to abet the expansion of Greater Israel?

The question was first posed to me in 2004 when I was speaking at a meeting of Mobilization for Peace in San Jose. A member of the audience asked, "Put it together-- Who's behind this war? Paul Wolfowitz and Elliott Abrams and the Project for a "Jew" American Century and, and, why don't you talk about that, huh? And ...."

But the questioner never had the full opportunity to complete his query because, flushed and red, he began to charge the stage. The peace activists attempted to detain the gentleman--whose confederates then grabbed some chairs to swing. As the Peace Center was taking on a somewhat warlike character, I chose to call in the authorities and slip out the back.

Still, his question intrigued me. As an investigative reporter, "Who's behind this war?" seemed like a reasonable challenge--and if it were a plot of Christ-killers and Illuminati, so be it. I just report the facts, ma'am.

And frankly, at first, it seemed like the gent had a point, twisted though his spin might be. There was Paul Wolfowitz, before Congress in March 2003, offering Americans the bargain of the century: a free Iraq--not "free" as in "freedom and democracy" but free in the sense of this won't cost us a penny. Wolfowitz testified: "There's a lot of money to pay for this that doesn't have to be U.S. taxpayer money."

A "Free" Iraq

And where would these billions come from? Wolfowitz told us: "It starts with the assets of the Iraqi people.... The oil revenues of that country could bring between $50 and $100 billion over the next two or three years."

This was no small matter. The vulpine Deputy Defense Secretary knew that the number one question on the minds of Americans was not, "Does Saddam really have the bomb?" but "What's this little war going to cost us?"

However, Wolfowitz left something out of his testimony: the truth. I hunted for weeks for the source of the Pentagon's oil revenue projections--and found them. They were wildly different from the Wolfowitz testimony. But this was not perjury. Ever since the conviction of Elliott Abrams for perjury before Congress during the Iran-Contra hearings, neither Wolfowitz nor the other Bush factotums swear an oath before testifying. If you don't raise your hand and promise to tell the truth, "so help me, God," you're off the hook with federal prosecutors.

How the Lord will judge that little ploy, we cannot say.

But Wolfowitz's little numbers game can hardly count as a Great Zionist conspiracy. That seemed to come, at first glance, in the form of a confidential 101-page document slipped to our team at BBC's Newsnight. It detailed the economic "recovery" of Iraq's post-conquest economy. This blueprint for occupation, we learned, was first devised in secret in late 2001.

Notably, this program for Iraq's recovery wasn't written by Iraqis; rather, it was promoted by the neo-conservatives of the Defense Department, home of Abrams, Wolfowitz, Harold Rhode and other desktop Napoleons unafraid of moving toy tanks around the Pentagon war room.

Nose-Twist's Hidden Hand

The neo-cons' 101-page confidential document, which came to me in a brown envelope in February 2001, just before the tanks rolled, goes boldly where no U.S. invasion plan had gone before: the complete rewrite of the conquered state's "policies, law and regulations." A cap on the income taxes of Iraq's wealthiest was included as a matter of course. And this was undoubtedly history's first military assault plan appended to a program for toughening the target nation's copyright laws. Once the 82nd Airborne liberated Iraq, never again would the Ba'athist dictatorship threaten America with bootleg dubs of Britney Spears's "...Baby One More Time."

It was more like a corporate takeover, except with Abrams tanks instead of junk bonds. It didn't strike me as the work of a Kosher Cabal for an Imperial Israel. In fact, it smelled of pork--Pig Heaven for corporate America looking for a slice of Iraq, and I suspected its porcine source. I gave it a big sniff and, sure enough, I smelled Grover Norquist.

Norquist is the capo di capi of right-wing, big-money influence peddlers in Washington. Those jealous of his inside track to the White House call him "Gopher Nose-Twist."

A devout Christian, Norquist channeled a million dollars to the Christian Coalition to fight the devil's tool, legalized gambling. He didn't tell the Coalition that the loot came from an Indian tribe represented by Norquist's associate, Jack Abramoff. (The tribe didn't want competition for its own casino operations.)

I took a chance and dropped in on Norquist's L Street office, and under a poster of his idol ["NIXON-- NOW MORE THAN EVER"], Norquist took a look at the "recovery" plan for Iraq and practically jumped over my desk to sign it, filled with pride at seeing his baby. Yes, he promoted the privatizations, the tax limit for the rich, and the change in copyright law, all concerns close to the hearts and wallets of his clients.

"The Oil" on Page 73

The very un-Jewish Norquist may have framed much of the U.S. occupation grabfest, but there was, without doubt, one notable item in the 101-page plan for Iraq which clearly had the mark of Zion on it. On page seventy-three the plan called for the "privatization....[of] the oil and supporting industries," the sell-off of every ounce of Iraq's oil fields and reserves. Its mastermind, I learned, was Ariel Cohen of the Heritage Foundation.

For the neo-cons, this was The Big One. Behind it, no less a goal than to bring down the lynchpin of Arab power, Saudi Arabia.

It would work like this: the Saudi's power rests on control of OPEC, the oil cartel which, as any good monopoly, withholds oil from the market, kicking up prices. Sell-off Iraq's oil fields and private companies will pump oil in their little Iraqi patches to the max. Iraq, the neo-cons hoped, would crank out six million barrels of oil a day, bust its OPEC quota, flood the world market, demolish OPEC and, as the price of oil fell off a cliff, Saudi Arabia would fall to its knees.

"It's a no-brainer," Cohen told me, at his office at Heritage. It was a dim little cubby, in which, in our hour or two together, the phone rang only once. For a guy who was supposed to be The Godfather of a globe-spanning Zionist scheme to destroy the Arab oil monopoly, he seemed kind of, well...pathetic.

And he failed. While the Norquist-promoted sell-offs, flat taxes and copyright laws were dictated into Iraqi law by occupation chief Paul Bremer, the Cohen neo-con oil privatization died an unhappy death. What happened, Ari?

"Arab economists," he hissed, "hired by the State Department ... the witches brew of the Saudi Royal family and Soviet Ostblock."

Well, the Soviet Ostblock does not exist, but the Arab economists do. I spoke with them in Riyadh, in London, in California, in wry accents mixing desert and Oxford drawls. They speak with confidence, knowing Saudi Arabia's political authority is protected by the royal families -- of Houston petroleum.

"Enhance OPEC"

After two mad years of hunting, I discovered the real plan for Iraq's oil, the one that keeps our troops in Fallujah. Some 323 pages long and deeply confidential, it was drafted at the James A. Baker III Institute in Houston, Texas, under the strict guidance of Big Oil's minions. It was the culmination of a series of planning groups that began in December 2000 with key players from the Baker Institute and Council on Foreign Relations (including one Ken Lay of Enron). This was followed by a State Department invasion-planning session in Walnut Creek, California, in February 2001, only weeks after Bush and Cheney took office. Its concepts received official blessing after a March 2001 gathering of oil chiefs (and Lay) with Dick Cheney where the group reviewed with the Vice-President the map of Iraq's oil fields.

Once I discovered the Big Oil plan, several of the players agreed to speak with me (not, to the chagrin of some, realizing that I rarely hold such conversions without secretly recording them). Most forthright was Philip Carroll, former CEO of Shell Oil USA, who was flown into Baghdad on a C-17 to make sure there would be no neo-con monkey business in America's newest oil fields.

It had been a very good war for Big Oil, with tripled oil prices meaning tripled profits. In Houston, I asked Carroll, a commanding, steel-straight chief executive, about Ari Cohen's oil privatization plan, the anti-Saudi "no-brainer."

"I would agree with that statement" Caroll told me, "privatization is a no-brainer. It would only be thought about by someone with no brain."

Bush world is divided in two: neo-cons on one side, and the Establishment (which includes the oil companies and the Saudis) on the other. The plan the Establishment created, crafted by Houston oil men, called for locking up Iraq's oil with agreements between a new state oil company under "profit-sharing agreements" with "IOCs" (International Oil Companies). The combine could "enhance the [Iraq's] government's relationship with OPEC," it read, by holding the line on quotas and thereby upholding high prices.

Wolfowitz Dammerung: Twilight Of The Neo-Con Gods

So there you have it. Wolfowitz and his neo-con clique-- bookish, foolish, vainglorious--had their asses kicked utterly, finally, and convincingly by the powers of petroleum, the Houston-Riyadh Big Oil axis.

Between the neo-cons and Big Oil, it wasn't much of a contest. The end-game was crushing, final. The Israelites had lost again in the land of Babylon. And to make certain the arriviste neo-cons got the point, public punishment was exacted, from exile to demotion to banishment. In January 2005, neo-con pointman Douglas Feith resigned from the Defense Department; his assistant Larry Franklin later was busted for passing documents to pro-Israel lobbyists. The State Department's knuckle-dragging enforcer of neo-con orthodoxies, John Bolton, was booted from Washington to New York to the powerless post of U.N. Ambassador.

Finally, on March 16, 2005, second anniversary of the invasion, neo-con leader of the pack Wolfowitz was cast out of the Pentagon war room and tossed into the World Bank, moving from the testosterone-powered, war-making decision center to the lending office for Bangladeshi chicken farmers. "The realists," crowed the triumphant editor of the journal of the Council on Foreign Relations, "have defeated the fantasists!"

So much for the Big Zionist Conspiracy that supposedly directed this war. A half- dozen confused Jews, wandering in the policy desert a long distance from mainstream Jewish views, armed only with Leo Strauss' silly aphorisms, were no match for Texas oil majors and OPEC potentates with a combined throw weight of half a trillion barrels of oil.

Operation Oily Immunity

During the initial assault on Baghdad, soldiers set up forward bases named Camp Shell and Camp Exxon. Those soldiers knew the score, even if the Pentagon's talking points dismissed any ties between Iraqi oil and their blood.

The Bush/Cheney administration has moved quickly to ensure US corporate control over Iraqi resources at least through the year 2007. The first part of the plan, created by the UN under US pressure is the Development Fund for Iraq which is being controlled by the US and advised by the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The second is a recent Bush executive order that provides absolute legal protection for U.S. interests in Iraqi oil.

In May, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 1483, which ended sanctions and endorsed the creation of Development Fund for Iraq, to be controlled by Paul Bremer and overseen by a board of accountants, including UN, World Bank, and IMF representatives. It endorsed the transfer of over $1 billion (of Iraqi oil money) from the Oil-for-Food program into the Development Fund. All proceeds from the sale of Iraqi oil and natural gas are also to be placed into the fund.

In the creation and expected implementation of this Development Fund for Iraq, one finds the fingerprints of the global economic structural adjustment that has attracted so much protest in recent years. World Bank and IMF programs, backed by the rigged rules of the World Trade Organization, have imposed dramatic financial restructuring upon much of the world. Developing countries have amassed huge debts in exchange for selling out their natural resources to powerful Northern corporations. This paradigm cloaks corporate welfare and neocolonialism in terms of "poverty alleviation" and now in Iraq, "humanitarian assistance".

New debt for Iraq will accrue through the very program that President Bush pledged would 'benefit the people of Iraq.' The Development Fund, derived from actual and expected Iraqi oil and gas sales, apparently will be used to leverage U.S. government-backed loans, credit, and direct financing for U.S. corporate forays into Iraq. Besides financing reconstruction projects, some of the funds will also be used as collateral for projects approved by the U.S. Export-Import Bank (ExIm), whose mission is not development or poverty alleviation, but rather the creation of US jobs and the promotion of American business abroad.

ExIm recently announced that it was open for business in Iraq and would begin considering applications by subcontractors (that is, companies hired by Bechtel and Halliburton) in Iraq. Corporations have found it next to impossible to obtain private bank credit for work in Iraq, due to the ongoing insecure environment. But ExIm has stepped in to take a lead role in facilitating U.S. business in Iraq.

"The primary source of repayment," explained an ExIm release, "is the Development Fund for Iraq, or another entity established under the auspices of the Coalition Provisional Authority with access to foreign exchange and protection from claims of creditors of the former regime." In other words, the US government is happy to provide credit to any US business wishing to do business in Iraq - especially because the money comes from Iraq.

For the Bush/Cheney administration and their allies in the oil industry, this was not enough. Hours after the UN endorsed US control of the 'Development Fund' for Iraq, Bush signed an executive order that was spun as implementing Resolution 1483, but in reality, went much further towards attracting investment and minimizing risk for US corporations in Iraq.

Executive Order 13303 decrees that 'any attachment, judgment, decree, lien, execution, garnishment, or other judicial process is prohibited, and shall be deemed null and void', with respect to the Development Fund for Iraq and "all Iraqi petroleum and petroleum products, and interests therein."

In other words, if ExxonMobil or ChevronTexaco touch Iraqi oil, it will be immune from legal proceedings in the US. Anything that could go, and elsewhere has gone, awry with U.S. corporate oil operations will be immune to judgment: a massive tanker accident; an explosion at an oil refinery; the employment of slave labor to build a pipeline; murder of locals by corporate security; the release of billions of tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. The President, with a stroke of the pen, signed away the rights of Saddam's victims, creditors and of the next true Iraqi government to be compensated through legal action. Bush's order unilaterally declares Iraqi oil to be the unassailable province of U.S. corporations.

In the short term, through the Development Fund and the Export-Import Bank programs, the Iraqi peoples' oil will finance U.S. corporate entrees into Iraq. In the long term, Executive Order 13303 protects anything those corporations do to seize control of Iraq's oil, from the point of production to the gas pump - and places oil companies above the rule of law.

June 28, 2006 -- WMR has reported on the explosive information from two Iraqi War Army counter-intelligence veterans that they uncovered materials and documents proving that some of Saddam Hussein's chemical and biological weapons were provided in 1988 by The Carlyle Group, through Spanish and French intermediaries. WMR has learned that pre-cursor and recombinant chemicals used in Iraqi WMDs were provided by a Texas petrochemical company and a chemical/biological toxin firm in which George H. W. Bush held and continues to hold a financial stake.

In April 2003, counter-intelligence personnel with the 223rd Military Intelligence Battalion, California Army National Guard, discovered, with the help of an Iraqi Air Force Chief Warrant Officer, aerial bombs specially configured for delivering chemical and biological weapons. The discovery was made at Al Bakr Air Base, some 60 miles north of Baghdad. In all, 29 crates containing the bombs were discovered.

Dave DeBatto, one of the counter-intelligence agents who discovered the bombs, wrote,

"He [the Iraqi Warrant Officer] pointed to the midsection of the bomb and to what appeared to be a small, thin metal door or covering bolted shut with small metal pins and possibly covering a slot or chamber. Inside, ]the Warrant Officer], explained, was a small parachute. He told us that after the bomb was dropped from the aircraft, the metal covering was blown open and the parachute deployed at about two hundred feet, slowing the descent of the bomb. A chemical agent, which was located in another chamber located at the rear of the bomb, was then dispersed into the air in an aerosol spray and spread over as large an area as the prevailing winds allowed.

[The Warrant Officer] led us around to the rear of the bomb and pointed to the tail assembly. It had a circular piece of metal connected to spokes in a conventional sort of design, but the similarity stopped there. Where ordinarily the rear end of a conventional high explosive bomb would taper into a point, this bomb had apparently had the tail section cut off about six inches from the tip resulting in a flat, circular end. Into that flat end, a small handle was inserted like one on a drawer. [The Warrant Officer] motioned with his hand near the handle and said that this device was twisted in order to open the compartment and then the technician pulled the drawer out and inserted a chemical agent in the slot. When finished, the drawer was reinserted into the bomb and the handle was once again secured."

The Iraqi Warrant Officer was proud that he managed to hide the bombs from UN weapons inspectors over the years since Operation Desert Storm. According to information provided to WMR, Saddam's decision to hide these particular weapons from the UN actually protected the ultimate source of the chemical and biological weapons -- companies directly linked to George H. W. Bush and James Baker.

DeBatto wrote, "I opened the folded off-white paper form and noticed several interesting things right away. The bombs had been purchased in the United States in 1988 from what appeared to be a government contractor called The Carlyle Group. I am almost embarrassed now to say that I had not heard of The Carlyle Group at that time so the name meant nothing to me. The only reason I remember it at all is that I was amazed that the bill was in English and I was stunned to see that a bomb that was used by Iraq in delivering chemical WMD - the only WMD found during the entire Iraq war - was in fact supplied to Saddam Hussein by the United States. Un-blanking believable."

However, there is more to this story, much more.

The Bush/Baker-influenced Carlyle Group profiteered from the Iraq-Iran War in the late 1980s. In the late 1980s and early 90s, illegal U.S. weapons shipments to Iraq became the subject of an intensive investigation by the House Banking Committee Chairman, Rep. Henry Gonzalez of Texas. This is what Sen. Edward Kennedy said of Gonzalez at the award ceremony presenting him with the 1994 President John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award, "The achievement of banking reform might have been enough courage for most elected officials -- but not Henry Gonzalez. The following year, he launched the "Iraqgate" investigation that exposed the role of the Atlanta branch o£ an Italian bank and the involvement of the U.S. Commodities Credit Corporation and Reagan and Bush Administration officials in the illegal sale of U.S. arms to Iraq leading up to Iraq's invasion of Kuwait and the Gulf War. The Bush Administration first asked -- and then pressured - Chairman Gonzalez to drop the investigation, on the ground that national security would be compromised. But Chairman Gonzalez saw through that flimsy pretext, and the rest is history."

From the reports of Gonzalez's Banking Committee and two law suits by Desert Storm veterans suffering from Gulf War Syndrome against two Texas-based companies named as sources of chemical and biological weapons for Iraq in court filings, WMR can report that George H. W. Bush and James Baker were directly involved in providing WMDs to Saddam Hussein using then-private businessman Donald Rumsfeld as an intermediary. U.S. Army counter-intelligence agents report to WMR that they and British WMD clean-up personnel were used as a janitorial team to get rid of evidence linking U.S. firms, including Carlyle, Phillips Petroleum (now Conoco Phillips), and Tanox Biosystems of Houston in providing deadly chemical and biological agents to Iraq in violation of UN sanctions. In addition, another Bush-connected corporation, Bechtel, was investigated by Gonzalez for providing not only chemical and biological production materials to Iraq but pressuring the U.S. Export-Import (EX-IM) Bank to underwrite loans for the construction of an Iraq-Aqaba, Jordan oil pipeline. [Vice President Dick Cheney's hand picked President of the EX-IM Bank, publishing magnate Phillip Merrill, was recently found in the Chesapeake Bay with a shotgun blast to the head and weighed down with an anchor].

On February 24, 1992, Gonzalez made the following remarks on the floor of the House concerning Bechtel, the first Bush administration, and the EX-IM Bank:

". . . the State Department and the White House would pressure the EX-IM Bank repeatedly to gain access to guaranteed financing for Iraqi projects. The most prominent of these projects was an Iraqi oil pipeline with an outlet at the Red Sea Port of Aqaba, Jordan. This contract alone was worth $1 billion for its contractor, Bechtel, the California engineering conglomerate. Secretary of State George Shultz and Bechtel had a longstanding business relationship. As a matter of fact, Secretary Shultz came from Bechtel, and he came back from Bechtel. He worked at Bechtel prior to becoming Secretary of State and, as I say and repeat, he went back immediately upon leaving the State Department. Other high officials in the Reagan administration involved in this project including President Bush, the current Deputy Secretary of State, Lawrence Eagleburger, former Attorney General Ed Meese, former NSC Director Robert McFarlane, and former CIA Director William Casey. At various times, every one of them contacted the EX-IM Bank to obtain financing for the Aqaba pipeline project. These officials all had one thing in common-they saw EX-IM Bank financing as crucial to United States-Iraq relations... Clearly, the highest levels of the administration placed tremendous importance on the Aqaba pipeline project. On June 19, 1984, the EX-IM Bank's Board met and not surprisingly approved a preliminary commitment of $484 million for the Aqaba pipeline for Bechtel. As a side note, the report read: Under normal peaceful circumstances, this project would not be economically viable. Can you imagine that? Under normal circumstances this project would not be viable. Oh, but it involves Bechtel. But Bechtel, as President Eisenhower said, is a mighty component of this great industrial defense complex, which in effect has been determining policy for our country, and particularly in the last two administrations."

The EX-IM Bank authorized the sale of chemical weapons to Iraq in the 1980s. On Dec. 20, 2002, The Washington Post reported, "An Export-Import Bank official reported in a memorandum that he could find 'no reason' to stop the sale [pesticides to Iraq from Dow Chemical], despite evidence that the pesticides were 'highly toxic' to humans and would cause death 'from asphyxiation'."

Bechtel also counted Ronald Reagan's Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger as a General Counsel; CIA Director Richard Helms (whose niece was the U.S. envoy of the Taliban and helped negotiate another pipeline deal (trans-Afghan CentGas) that would partly result in the 9-11 "Al Qaeda" attacks on the United States) as a consultant; and Ross Connelly, George W. Bush's chief financial officer of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (and another conduit of slush finds to the Iraq Coalition Provisional Authority) as head of Bechtel Investments.

During his probe of U.S. military support for Saddam, Chairman Gonzalez also investigated another Iraqi pipeline consortium partner, Brown & Root, now Kellogg Brown & Root, a subsidiary of Halliburton, headed after the Bush I administration by Dick Cheney.

Gonzalez, in a letter to President George H. W. Bush on May 2, 1991, brought up the names of a number of other Republicans in the illegal WMD trade with Iraq:

COMMITTEE ON BANKING, FINANACE AND URBAN AFFAIRS,
Washington, DC
May 2,1991

Hon. GEORGE BUSH,
President of the United States,
Washington, DC

DEAR MR. PRESIDENT: The House Banking Committee is conducting an
investigation into over $4 billion in unreported loans the former employees of the Atlanta branch of Banca Nazionale del Lavoro (BNL) provided to the government of Iraq between 1985 and 1990. The Committee's investigation has uncovered the fact that Henry Kissinger was on the International Advisory Board of BNL during that same time period and that BNL was a client of Kissinger Associates.

As you are aware, Mr. Brent Scowcroft and Mr. Lawrence Eagleburger were high ranking officials of Kissinger Associates- Mr. Scowcroft as Vice Chairman and Mr. Eagleburger as President. Kissinger Associates represents many large multinational companies involved in various aspects of international trade, including the arms business. Since these firms sell their wares worldwide, they often are the beneficiaries of U.S. policy towards foreign countries. I am deeply concerned over the potential influence Mr. Kissinger may exert over the decisions and actions of Mr. Scowcroft and Mr. Eagleburger, and am especially troubled by a potential conflict of interest involving Mr. Scowcroft.

The NationaI Security Advisor is in a position to strongly influence our national security and foreign policies, including the U.S. export licensing process. These policies often have a direct influence on individual corporations doing business abroad. Until October 4,1990, Mr. Scowcroft owned stock in approximately 40 U.S. corporations. many of which were doing busies in Iraq. Those companies received more than one out of every eight U.S. export licenses for exports to Iraq. Several of the companies were also clients of Kissinger Associates while Mr. Scowcroft was Vice Chairman of that firm.

Mr. Scowcroft's stock holding, particularly in corporations that are clients of Kissinger Associates, present the potential for serious conflicts of interest and cause one to question whether or not his decisions as National Security Advisor are completely disassociated from the interests of his former boss and longtime colleague.

Mr. Eagleburger, the current Deputy Secretary of State, as well as Mr. Scowcroft, may also be involved in a conflict of interest related to their role in promoting military sales abroad. The Legal Times recently reported that Mr. Eagleburger and Mr. Scowcroft (a lifelong Air Force Officer) are strong advocates of using $1 billion in Export-Import Bank resources to finance the sale of U.S. military articles overseas. The Legal Times also
reported that Mr. Eagleburger actually sent a classified memorandum to all U.S. Embassies urging that U.S. defense firms be given more help selling weapons abroad. Many corporations, including Mr. Eagleburger's past employer, the ITT Corporation, stand to benefit if the U.S. foreign service is forced to take a greater role in selling U.S. military articles abroad. For your information, I have attached a copy of the Legal Times
article referring to Mr. Eagleburger's and Mr. Scowcroft's roles in expanding military sales abroad. I am concerned that their attempts to use the foreign service and the Export-Import Bank to assist corporations in financing military sales abroad may have been prejudiced by their past associations.

Mr. Scowcroft's and Mr. Eagleburger's actions seem out of step at a time when the U.S. should be leading a worldwide effort to limit arms proliferation. The positions held by these men are of the utmost importance to the national security of the United States. Persons filling such important positions must be independent from past associations which
could cloud their judgment.

I trust you will consider the issues I have raised in this letter and, if necessary, take appropriate action to ensure that potential conflicts are eliminated.Thank you for your time and consideration. With best wishes.

Sincerely,
HENRY B. GONZALEZ
Chairman

Hon. Henry B. Gonzalez,
Chairman, Committee on Banking, Finance and Urban Affairs, House of Representatives, Washington, DC.

Dear Mr. Chairman: In a letter dated 20 August 1991, the Banking Committee informed us of its investigation into the operations of Banca Nazionale del Lavoro (BNL). As a part of this investigation, the Banking Committee requested any foreign intelligence information this Agency may have on foreign beneficiaries of BNL loans to Iraq. As you are aware, we also are responding to a separate request from your Committee to review summaries of several raw, unevaluated reports on Iraq and BNL. Some of these summaries contain specific information on the Rafidain Bank (item 15 in your 20 August letter).
In addition to the information we are providing at this time, there are other documents, with the security classification TOP SECRET compartmented information, on the Iraq/BNL connection that we are prepared to provide directly to you and the other Committee members. The TOP SECRET compartmented documents also can be made available to staff members when they have obtained the appropriate clearances.

In response to your request, an extensive search of the files and indices of the appropriate CIA offices produced the following results that are keyed to your letter.

All portions classified secret
[ALL PORTIONS CLASSIFIED SECRET]

In addition to providing information from our classified files, we also have included some unclassified material from other open source publications (TAB B), and from the Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) that may assist you in this investigation. (TAB C)

In the course of searching our records, we identified documents relating to this matter that were originated by the Defense Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency, United States Information Agency, Department of Justice, and the Department of State. We are prepared to provide these agencies with specific document citations to facilitate their response to the Committee if you with to obtain these documents from them.

Gonzalez also received a Federal Reserve Bank of New York memo regarding the shipment of nuclear triggers to Iraq and BNL:

Federal Reserve Bank of New York,
April 5, 1990.
To: Mr. Corrigan.
From: Thomas C. Baxter, Jr.
Subject: Lavoro.
I followed up on your suggestion about a possible connection between Banca Nazionale del Lavoro (`BNL') and the nuclear triggers that were seized in London. As you suspected, there is a connection. Apparently, Von Wedel (a former officer of BNL who is now cooperating with the government) says that one of the transactions done with Rafidian Bank at some point referenced nuclear detonators. According to Von Wedel, this reference scared BNL away from this particular transaction, but it is possible that the lesson the Iraqis learned was to be generic in preparing the credit documentation. Thus, it is entirely possible that BNL financed some of this material.

At any rate, I have been assured that those conducting the criminal investigation in Atlanta are looking into these connections, with a view to developing additional criminal charges. The resignation of the United States Attorney in Atlanta has led to a number of difficulties in that investigation. These difficulties have been compounded by what is perceived an interference from the Justice Department in Washington.

The press has also made a connection between BNL and the detonators. Attached you will find copies of two Financial Times articles doing just that.



There is also an interesting Justice Department memo from U.S. Attorney Robert Barr (later elected to the House of Representatives) that was uncovered by Gonzalez that points to Turkish involvement with Saddam's acquisition of WMDs from the United States. After serving a Bush I's National Security Adviser, Scowcroft became the head of the American-Turkish Council (ATC), an entity that figures prominently in the A Q Khan nuclear proliferation network, the work of Valerie Plame Wilson and her Brewster Jennings & Associates covert team, FBI Turkish and Farsi translator Sibel Edmonds' discoveries while looking over FBI intercepts, and the use of Turkish intermediaries connected to Russian-Israeli Mafia syndicates involved in WMD proliferation. Barr subsequently lost his House seat in a redistricting engineered with the assistance of George W. Bush political "Svengali" Karl Rove.

U.S. DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, U.S. ATTORNEY, NORTHERN DISTRICT OF GEORGIA, ATLANTA, GA, JANUARY 9, 1990.
Re: Assistance of Robert Kennedy.

Mr. Zane Kelly,
Federal Reserve Bank, Atlanta, GA

Dear Mr. Kelly: As you are aware Mr. Kennedy of your office has been providing essential assistance to this office in the BNL-Atlanta criminal investigation since late July 1989. In fact, without Mr. Kennedy's expertise this major case could not have progressed with the speed and depth accomplished to date. We certainly appreciate his efforts as well as those of yourself, Madeline Marsten and Ed Willingham.

Prior to anticipated indictment early next month, we request additional assistance from Mr. Kennedy, which involves a trip to Rome and Istanbul to interview essential non-grand jury witnesses. Travel may commence as early as January 19, 1990.

The stop in Rome is necessary to speak with a number of BNL-Rome employees, officers, and directors at whom Chistopher Drogoul and other key subjects have leveled charges of complicity in their BNL-Atlanta scheme. A Rome setting is required for immediate access to all relevant records which may assist in defeating these spurious claims by subjects of our criminal investigation.

The Istanbul portion of the trip is necessary to interview Yavus Tezeller, a Turkish national who has essential knowledge and records regarding kickbacks to BNL-Atlanta's First Vice President, Christopher Drogoul, and his father Pierre Drogoul. Tezeller's attorneys also indicate he can provide information regarding `after sale services,' unearned consulting fees, and other payments to the Iraqis, as well as kickbacks paid by United States and multinational companies to obtain Iraqi contracts. This is especially important information in light of the prevailing rumors regarding the Paris Club's intent to reschedule Iraqi debt, including a substantial portion of the $1.7 billion guaranteed by the CCC. Other Entrado and Enka officials with their relevant documents should also be available for interview.

Thank you again for the support of your office in this most important investigation.

Sincerely,

ROBERT L. BARR, JR.,
U.S. Attorney.
GALE MCKENZIE,
Assistant U.S. Attorney.



The George W. Bush administration attempted to censor all mention of U.S. firms in the 11,000-page WMD dossier submitted by Iraq to the UN Security Council prior to the U.S. invasion of Iraq. However, the 29 crates of aerial chem-bio dispersal bombs was proof in the pudding of Bush I (via Carlyle, Bechtel, and others) and Margaret Thatcher's complicity (via the firm Matrix Churchill) in arming Saddam. That is why the number one priority of American and British counter-intelligence personnel was recovery of the evidence and classification of the incriminating documents, including shipping bills. Unfortunately, for the Bush II and Blair governments, the uncensored Iraqi dossier was leaked to the German press.

The Iraqi dossier and UN weapons inspector reports support what Sen. Donald Riegle, the Chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, reported on Feb. 9, 1994, and reported in the Senate Banking Committee's "U.S. Chemical and Biological Exports to Iraq and Their Possible Impact on the Health Consequences of the Persian Gulf War" (the "Riegle Report"), "the U.S. government actually licensed the export of deadly microorganisms to Iraq. It was later learned that these microorganisms exported by the United States were identical to those the United Nations inspectors found and recovered from the Iraqi biological warfare program."

On September 11, 1990, PBS's Frontline reported the following, "In the beginning, the Banca Nazionale del Lavoro [BNL] provided credit for Iraqi purchases of U.S. grain and other commodities. Most were federally guaranteed loans under a program designed to help American farmers by promoting commodity exports. But the Iraqis soon began using BNL's money for equipment and technology which could help them develop their military-industrial base. BNL extended a $14 million letter of credit to a Tuscaloosa, Alabama company -- XYZ Options -- so the Iraqis could purchase precision carbide tools [which are used in chemical and biological weapon production]. $53.8 million in credit from BNL went to Lummus Crest in New Jersey to build an ethylene plant. Ethylene has many uses, including the production of chemical warfare agents."

In 1994, Bechtel, Phillips Petroleum and other firms were sued by Gulf War Syndrome sufferers for providing to Saddam's government, ethylene, a primary precursor ingredient for thiodiglycol, a chemical used in the production of mustard gas. Between 1983 and 1985, Phillips Export (a subsidiary of Phillips Petroleum), sold 500 tons of thiodiglycol, to the Iraqi State Enterprise for Pesticide Production, via the Dutch firm, KBS Holland. In addition, five tons of thiodiglycol, were allegedly shipped to Iraq via the Spanish firm, Cades. Cades claims chemical was destroyed prior to its delivery. DeBatto and his team discovered the Carlyle shipments of WMDs were made via a Spanish intermediary. Phillips Export/ConocoPhillips is a defendant in a Texas civil suit brought by 3,500 Gulf War Syndrome sufferers.

In 2000, Phil Beck, a partner with the law firm, Bartlit Beck Herman Palenchar & Scott, served as a member of George W. Bush's three-man Florida election trial team that argued on behalf of Bush before Judge N. Sanders Sauls. Beck was supported by four other Bartlit Beck lawyers, Shawn Fagan, Sean Gallagher and Glen Summers, and associate Joseph Fazioli , a former clerk on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. Not surprisingly, Beck served as counsel for Phillips Petroleum in a case involving a Phillips' ethylene plant in Sweeny, Texas (First Olefins Limited Partnership v. Phillips Petroleum Company) and a polythylene case (DuPont v. Phillips Petroleum). Phillips contributed $100,000 to the Bush-Cheney 2000 Presidential Inauguration Committee. Phillips personnel, along with those from Enron, were rewarded with positions on the Bush-Cheney Department of Energy Transition Team. Bush I's Secretary of State Eagleburger serves on the board of Conoco-Phillips.

The discovery of Carlyle documents with WMD components at Al Bakr by US Army counter-intelligence agents closes the loop on the involvement of Bush I and Baker in supplying Saddam Hussein with his deadliest weapons. Bush and Baker are reportedly shareholders in Houston-based Tanox Biosystems, sued by Gulf War Syndrome sufferers for shipping deadly biological agents to Iraq before Desert Storm. Tanox has also been accused of infecting death row inmates at the Texas State Prison in Huntsville with Mycoplasma fermentans (incognitus), eventually passing the results if the tests to the U.S. Army's Fort Detrick bio-weapons laboratory. Another defendant in the Gulf War veterans' suit is Rhone-Poulenc, headquartered in Shelton, Connecticut, and operator of a chemical plant in Houston. (After merger with Hoetsch, Rhone-Poulenc is now known as Aventis). DeBatto's discovery that the Carlyle shipment of the chem-bio weapons was made through Spanish and French intermediaries is bolstered by the fact that two firms identified by Gulf War plaintiffs, one Spanish -- Cades -- and the other French -- Rhone Poulenc -- are identified as pass through firms for U.S. shipments of nerve and mustard gas agents to Saddam in the 1980s.

The Gonzalez investigation of the provision by Phillips Petroleum of the mustard gas precursor chemical ethylene to Iraq was stymied on October 23, 1989, when Phillips' largest ethylene chemical plant in Pasadena, Texas, which sits alongside the Houston Shipping Channel, was rocked by a mega-explosion that killed 23 people and injured more than 100. According to the U.S. Fire Administration of FEMA, metal and concrete debris from the explosion were found as far away as six miles from ground zero. The report states that the explosion was caused by "a failure in either a line or valve which carried ethylene and/or isobutane. The line was reported as being approximately 10" in diameter and possibly carrying as much as 700 pounds per square inch pressure. It is not known if a mechanical failure took place or if human error was a factor. Regardless, a failure of a high pressure line carrying these types of flammable products can create a large, enveloping, explosive cloud within seconds." Rice University, 25 miles away, registered the explosion as 3.5 on the Richter scale, however, it was 4.0 at ground zero. A number of the plant's offices, which possibly contained documents that could have been of use to Federal investigators, were totally destroyed. Gonzalez and Senate Banking Committee investigators constantly complained that Bush I administration officials covered up every aspect of the Reagan-Bush secret arming of Iraq with WMDs. With no definite finding of what caused the Pasadena explosion, there is a possibility that more innocent Americans paid with their lives for the myriad crimes of the Bush Family.

America Betrayed
Bush, bin Laden, 9-11
by R. Joseph, Ph.D.
University Press, 2nd Edition ISBN: 0971644578



Prescot Bush and Rockefeller's Standard Oil had been in business with the Hitler regime and the Nazis since 1933, and in 1942, three Bush businesses were seized by the U.S. government, for violation of the Trading With the Enemies Act.

Three generations of the Bush clan became members of a German secret society: the Yale chapter of the "Order of Skull and Bones." In Germany, the Order of Skull of Bones --also known as "The Brotherhood of Death"-- gave rise to Hitler and the dreaded SS. Prescot Bush, through his shipping company, became a special "Friend" of Himmler's SS--the same SS which, in conjunction with IG Farbin, ran the concentration and slave labor camps.

The Bush clan and Rockefeller's standard Oil, were in business with IG Farben, as well as with the Saudis who had also partnered with Hitler.

At the conclusion of WWII, and Germany's defeat, thousands of high ranking Nazis and SS agents were recruited, by Bush-Rockefeller lawyer, Allen Dulles, into what would later become the CIA. Allen Dulles, and later, George Bush, would become directors of the CIA...

...IG Farbin, a consortium of companies that included Bayer, conducted horible experiements on concentration camp inmates to discover an "ethnic biological weapon" --a deadly disease that would target specific ethnic groups... Drs. funded by the Rockefeller foundation directed this research.

In 1957, a scientist who completed his medical training in Nazi-occupied Poland, and who was funded by the Rockefeller foundation, injected 300,000 Central African men, women, and children, with an experimental polio vacine--a vacine that contained a deadly AIDS-like viruse, monkey HSIV. Years later, Central Africa would become "Ground Zero" for the AIDS/HIV epidemic...

On August 6, 2001, Bush received a memorandum titled "Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.," but then did nothing. Two weeks later, CIA Chief Tenet and his top deputies received a briefing paper labeled "Islamic Extremist Learns to Fly." Bush and Cheney were notified and did nothing...War would be good politics and good for the business of war.

...Three generations of the Bush clan have been in business with governments and people who kill Americans, and on the morning of 9-11-2001, Bush sr. was in business with the bin Ladens and other Saudis who had helped fund Osama bin Laden and the attack of 9-11-2001... 15 of the hijackers were from Saudi Arabia and Bush did nothing to stop the attack.

The attack of 9-11, would transform an inept, incompetent president into a war time leader who would attack not Saudi Arabia but Iraq and then steal its oil and assets...as well as attack American Civil Liberties and the U.S. constitution...

Bush knew in advance, but welcomed the attack of 9-11-2001, as its aftermath would not only earn his family and associates billions of dollars, but would provide an excuse for attacking Iraq and toppling its leader, Saddam Hussein--the sworn enemy of Osama Bin Laden.

"Key FBI Headquarters personnel had to be spies or moles.. who were actually working for Osama Bin Laden....Key FBI HQ personnel... continued to, almost inexplicably, throw up roadblocks and undermine Minneapolis' desperate efforts... to stop terrorists...." who planned "to take control of a plane and fly it into the World Trade Center." --FBI supervisor, and Coleen M. Rowley, FBI Special Agent & Chief Division Counsel...

"It was as if Usama bin Laden, hidden in some high mountain redoubt, were engaging in long-range mind control of George Bush." --United States Counterterrorism Chief, Richard A. Clarke.

...and it goes on and on...

Cheney Spoke of Need to Establish US Presence in Mid-East
author: D. Burbeck
Jun 26, 2006 11:52

By D. Burbeck

Mike Malloy of Air America Radio said a few nights ago that in the
'90s Cheney used to speak of the need to establish a U.S. presence
in the Middle-East. I had never heard this before, but it came as no
surprise.


Mr. Malloy had Greg Pallast on a few days later - investigative
reporter for the British Guardian Newspaper - who has discovered and
disclosed a document of the oil companies' written before the war which
states that the goal of the occupation in Iraq would be to control oil
production in accordance with what the Saudis wish. He said, essentially
it called for "shutting off the spigot".....in order to raise prices. Now things
make much more sense. Things are not going badly in Iraq. Things are
going just as the oil giants had planned. "

-----------------------------------
FTW October 24, 2000 - The success of Bush Vice Presidential running mate Richard Cheney at leading Halliburton, Inc. to a five year $3.8 billion "pig-out" on federal contracts and taxpayer-insured loans is only a partial indicator of what may happen if the Bush ticket wins in two weeks. A closer look at available research, including an August 2, 2000 report by the Center for Public Integrity (CPI) at www.public-i.org, suggests that drug money has played a role in the successes achieved by Halliburton under Cheney's tenure as CEO from 1995 to 2000. This is especially true for Halliburton's most famous subsidiary, heavy construction and oil giant, Brown and Root. A deeper look into history reveals that Brown and Root's past as well as the past of Dick Cheney himself, connect to the international drug trade on more than one occasion and in more than one way.
This June the lead Washington, D.C. attorney for a major Russian oil company connected in law enforcement reports to heroin smuggling and also a beneficiary of US backed loans to pay for Brown and Root contracts in Russia, held a $2.2 million fund raiser to fill the already bulging coffers of presidential candidate George W. Bush. This is not the first time that Brown and Root has been connected to drugs and the fact is that this "poster child" of American industry may also be a key player in Wall Street's efforts to maintain domination of the half trillion dollar a year global drug trade and its profits. And Dick Cheney, who has also come closer to drugs than most suspect, and who is also Halliburton's largest individual shareholder ($45.5 million), has a vested interest in seeing to it that Brown and Root's successes continue.
Of all American companies dealing directly with the U.S. military and providing cover for CIA operations few firms can match the global presence of this giant construction powerhouse which employs 20,000 people in more than 100 countries. Through its sister companies or joint ventures, Brown and Root can build offshore oil rigs, drill wells, construct and operate everything from harbors to pipelines to highways to nuclear reactors. It can train and arm security forces and it can now also feed, supply and house armies. One key beacon of Brown and Root's overwhelming appeal to agencies like the CIA is that, from its own corporate web page, it proudly announces that it has received the contract to dismantle aging Russian nuclear tipped ICBMs in their silos.
Furthermore, the relationships between key institutions, players and the Bushes themselves suggest that under a George "W" administration the Bush family and its allies may well be able, using Brown and Root as the operational interface, to control the drug trade all the way from Medellin to Moscow.
Originally formed as a heavy construction company to build dams, Brown and Root grew its operations via shrewd political contributions to Senate candidate Lyndon Johnson in 1948. Expanding into the building of oil platforms, military bases, ports, nuclear facilities, harbors and tunnels, Brown and Root virtually underwrote LBJ's political career. It prospered as a result, making billions on U.S. Government contracts during the Vietnam War. The "Austin Chronicle" in an August 28 Op-ed piece entitled "The Candidate From Brown and Root" labels Republican Cheney as the political dispenser of Brown and Root's largesse. According to political campaign records, during Cheney's five year tenure at Halliburton the company's political contributions more than doubled to $1.2 million. Not surprisingly, most of that money went to Republican candidates.
Independent news service "newsmakingnews.com," also describes how in 1998, with Cheney as Chairman, Halliburton spent $8.1 billion to purchase oil industry equipment and drilling supplier Dresser Industries. This made Halliburton a corporation that will have a presence in almost any future oil drilling operation anywhere in the world. And it also brought back into the family fold the company that had once sent a plane - also in 1948 - to fetch the new Yale Graduate George H.W. Bush, to begin his career in the Texas oil business. Bush the elder's father, Prescott, served as a Managing Director for the firm that once owned Dresser, Brown Bothers Harriman.
It is clear that everywhere there is oil there is Brown and Root. But increasingly, everywhere there is war or insurrection there is Brown and Root also. From Bosnia and Kosovo, to Chechnya, to Rwanda, to Burma, to Pakistan, to Laos, to Vietnam, to Indonesia, to Iran to Libya to Mexico to Colombia, Brown and Root's traditional operations have expanded from heavy construction to include the provision of logistical support for the U.S. military. Now, instead of U.S. Army quartermasters, the world is likely to see Brown and Root warehouses storing and managing everything from uniforms to rations to vehicles.
Dramatic expansion of Brown and Root's operations in Colombia also suggest Bush preparations for a war inspired feeding frenzy as a part of "Plan Colombia." This is consistent with moves by former Bush Treasury Secretary Nicholas Brady to open a joint Colombian-American investment partnership called Corfinsura for the financing of major construction projects with the Colombian Antioquia Syndicate, headquartered in Medellin. (See FTW June, 00). And expectations of a ground war in Colombia may explain why, in a 2000 SEC filing, Brown and Root reported that in addition to owning more than 800,000 square feet of warehouse space in Colombia, they also lease another 122,000 square feet. According to the filing of the Brown and Root Energy Services Group, the only other places where the company maintains warehouse space are in Mexico (525,000 sq. feet), and the U.S. (38,000) square feet.
According to the web site of Colombia's Foreign Investment Promotion Agency Brown and Root had no presence in the country until 1997. What does Brown and Root, which, according to the AP has made more than $2 billion supporting and supplying U.S. troops, know about Colombia that the U.S. public does not? Why the need for almost a million square feet of warehouse space that can be transferred from one Brown and Root operation (energy) to another (military support) with the stroke of a pen?

were released from prison within a few years. Others would go

virtually unpunished. No one ever investigated the Nazi sympa-

thizers in Western intelligence who had made it all possible."

"The bottom line is that the Nazi businessmen survived the

war with their fortunes intact and rebuilt their industrial empires to

become the richest men in the world." Indeed, some became

"multibillionaires" even though they "had been prominent mem-

bers of Hitler’s inner circle" (1,2).

Dulles’ clients got away with it. President Roosevelt’s dream

of putting the Nazis’ moneymen on trial died with him" (1,2).

Dulles and his clients had won.

However, insofar as the Dulles-Bush-Harriman-Rockefeller

clique were concerned, this was just a single battle. The great prize

would be to seize power in the United States and to use the govern-

ment to serve their own ends. Like Hitler, they intended to do it

"legally."

Knowledge is power. Secrecy insures that knowledge and

power are controlled by those controlling the secrets. If crimes re-

main secret, there is no punishment, just rewards.

Espionage and spying are a means of gaining access to the

secrets of others. Knowledge is power.

It was the job of Allen Dulles to bury the secrets which would

implicate his patrons and business partners, as well as himself, in

treasonable and criminal acts. However, Dulles, with a long his-

tory in spying and espionage, wanted more than to just bury se-

crets. Dulles wanted to build a spy agency (4), that like Himmler’s

Gestapo, would be above the law, and thus beyond any possibility

of penalty

Even before the end of World War II, Dulles, who would

soon become the first director of the CIA, had begun recruiting his

dream team of super-spymasters from the "Brotherhood of Death,"

that is, from Himmler’s dreaded SS, the Gestapo (5). Dulles would

create an American version of the Gestapo: the CIA. The CIA would

become his personal instrument of power.

for crimes such as terror, theft, slavery or murder.

Wall Street law firm in New York. Allen Dulles performed work

for Bush, Harriman, and Rockefeller in setting up business rela-

tionships with the Nazis and with top Nazi industrialists. Dulles

played a pivotal role in promoting U.S.-Nazi corporate relations

(6).

Dulles was also legal counsel for Standard Oil and the Nazi’s

IG Farben, which had partnered with the Rockefellers and owned

considerable Standard oil stock. His brother John Dulles (who

later became Secretary of State) was an IG Farben board member

(6).

Dulles was originally recruited by OSS intelligence chief

Colonel William J. Donovan, in 1941, and was posted to Berne,

Switzerland. Dulles was picked because of his great expertise on

Germany which he acquired through his law firm and by working

as an agent for Bush, Harriman, and Rockefeller (6).

From October 1942 to May 1945, he gathered intelligence

information on Nazi Germany, especially as it pertained to com-

merce and industry. Much of this information was also passed on

to his business associates, i.e. Bush and gang (1,2,6).

The Nazis considered Dulles to be "the most influential White

House man in Europe" and Dulles had numerous meetings with

top ranking members of the SS (4,6,7). In January of 1943, Dulles,

acting as a representative of the United States, began negotiating

with top Nazis. Dulles was urging that Hitler be deposed and re-

placed by SS chief Himmler (7).

Himmler was a mass murderer, responsible for the deaths of

at least ten million men, women, and children, in the Nazi death

camps and elsewhere (7,8). However, Himmler was still a business

man and a member of the "Brotherhood of Death" (8), as were

Bush, Harriman, Rockefeller, and other Dulles’ associates (9).

Dulles and gang thought Himmler would make a fine leader.

All were in agreement with the Dulles plan, including

Himmler, and presumably, the White House (7). "The stumbling

block was the question of how the SS could get rid of Hitler" (7).

Himmler wished to make Hitler an "honorary president."

The entire plan of replacing Hitler, however, went awry, when,

according to Dulles (4), Hitler became aware of the plan due to

"some Allied agency neither American or British."

America Betrayed

Himmler panicked.

Dulles then began negotiating with Obergruppenfuhrer Karl

Wolff (4), Himmler’s "senior aid" and the "Head of his Personal

Staff." Wolff "knew all the murkiest secrets of SS headquarters."

This too came to naught, perhaps because Hitler learned of

the meetings with Dulles. Curiously, Hitler seemed to know Dulles

personally, and thus did not object to these meetings. In April, 1945,

for example, Hitler summoned Wolff and asked him about Dulles

(7,8). Wolf replied: "I am happy to report to you, my Fuhrer, that

I have succeeded in opening doors through Mr. Dulles." After fur-

ther discussion, Hitler relied: "Go back to Italy. Keep up your rela-

tionship with Dulles and the Americans."

By this late stage of the game, it was clear that Germany had

lost the War. It was also clear that it would be impossible to install

Himmler as the leader of Germany, though, that hope was actually

kept alive until the final weeks of the war.

Dulles and the Bush gang had lots of Nazi "friends" includ-

ing hundreds of men who wore the dreaded SS death head. Many

of these were Nazi businessmen—men who, in the name of prof-

its, enslaved, starved, and worked to death, millions of men and

women.

When the war ended, Dulles acted to insure that Nazi busi-

nessmen would escape punishment with their fortunes intact. He

also helped thousands of high ranking SS officers to escape.

Dulles was not acting out of kindness. He wanted to put these

men to work as spies who would murder and kill in the name of the

good ‘ol USA. Even before the war ended, Dulles had begun re-

cruiting Gestapo agents, that is, members of the German Order of

Skull and Bones, the Brotherhood of Death, into what would be-

come the American version of the Gestapo, the CIA (5,6).

As recently revealed by the CIA (5) and as documented by

Christopher Simpson, in his extensively researched book, Blowback

(10), "hundreds of convicted Nazi war criminals" were "smuggled

out of Germany to avoid prosecution at the war crimes trials at

Nuremberg." They were "recruited by, and were put on the payroll

of several U.S. government agencies, including the Army CIC, the

OSS, and the Office of Policy Coordination within the State De-

partment."

Dulles was well rewarded for his work on behalf of his Nazi

friends and American business partners. He became the first direc-

tor of the CIA.

Once the war ended, thousands of SS men, murderers, tor-

turers, killers of women, children and babies, were recruited by

Dulles, including, as admitted by the CIA on April 29, 2001 (11),

Klaus Barbie, the infamous "Butcher of Lyon." Barbie was even-

tually convicted of crimes against humanity by a French court.

SS Nazi Major General Walter Dornberger was yet another

"butcher" recruited by Dulles. Dornberger had been sentenced to

death by hanging for war crimes. With the help of Dulles he es-

caped his fate, and was welcomed with open arms into what would

become the CIA (5).

As revealed by the National Archives, as admitted by the CIA,

and as reported by BBC and UPI (5), the CIA employed high rank-

ing Nazis, including Nazi General Reinhard Gehlen who placed

his Nazi spy ring at the disposal of Dulles following the close of

WWII. Gehlen’s Nazi CIA spy ring, became known as "the Gehlen

Organization and received millions of dollars in funding from the

U.S. until 1956" (11).

Gehlen was Hitler’s senior intelligence officer on the East-

ern Front during the war and was responsible for the torture and

murder of millions of Soviet prisoners of war. However, instead of

being brought to justice, Gehlen’s network of SS and Gestapo Nazi

agents, were secretly released from prisoner of war camps by U.S.

intelligence officers at the urgings of Allen Dulles.

According to T. H. Tetens author of "The New Germany and

the Old Nazis, "Gehlen "immediately asked for an interview with

the commanding officer " and offered the United States "his intel-

ligence staff, spy apparatus, and the priceless files for future ser-

vice."

Dulles made personal arrangements for Gehlen to be sent to

Washington where his offer was accepted. "The Pentagon-Gehlen

agreement," states Tetens (12), "in practice guaranteed the con-

tinuation of the all-important Abwehr division of the German Gen-

eral Staff. Hundreds of German army and SS officers were quietly

released from internment camps and joined Gehlen’s headquarters

in the Spessart Mountains in central Germany. When the staff had

America Betrayed

grown to three thousand men, the Bureau Gehlen opened a closely

guarded twenty-five-acre compound near Pullach, south of Munich,

operating under the innocent name of the South German Industrial

Development Organization."

"In the early fifties it was estimated that the organization

employed up to 4,000 intelligence specialists in Germany, mainly

former army and SS officers, and more than 4,000 V-men (under-

cover agents). Gehlen’s spy network stretched from Korea to Cairo,

from Siberia to Santiago de Chile. Within a few years the Gehlen

apparatus had grown by leaps and bounds" (12).

As summed up by Tetens (12), "the short period of 1950-51

must be marked as the time when Hitler’s old officers, SS leaders,

and [Nazi] party functionaries returned to power and influence."

A US Justice Department spokesman, Eli Rosenbaum, said

"the files demonstrated that the real winners of the war were Nazi

war criminals."

Allen Dulles, in his book "The Secret Surrender," justifies

his use of Gestapo agents, by making a distinction between "good"

and "bad" Nazis. Standartenfuehrer Eugen Dollmann, Himmler’s

representative in Rome, was a "good" Nazi, as was SS

Obergruppenfuehrer Karl Wolff.

In November, 1938, this "good" Nazi, Karl Wolff played a

major role in the atrocities of "Kristallnacht" (the night of broken

glass), during which 20,000 German Jews were attacked, beaten

up, their homes and business burnt, and then sent to concentration

camps where they were tortured, starved, and murdered.

After the conquest of Poland, Wolf sent a letter to Himmler

which read as follows: "For your letter of July 28th, 1942, I thank

you—also in the name of the Reichsfuehrer SS—sincerely. With

particular joy I noted your assurance that for two weeks now a

train has been carrying, every day, 5000 members of the Chosen

People to Treblinka, so that we are now in a position to carry through

this ‘population movement.’ With best regards and Heil Hitler!"

Thus, in the mind of Dulles and his CIA, there are "good"

sadists and mass murderers such as Wolff and even SS chief,

Himmler, and those that are bad sadists and murderers, i.e. com-

munists and labor leaders.

The CIA, thus, became a Nazi refuge and would soon be-

...Bush, bin Laden, 9-11...

come an instrument of Nazi-like terror. The CIA, like the Gestapo,

would employ espionage, propaganda, terror, chemical and bio-

logical warfare, including the purposeful infection and murder of

innocent American and foreign citizens, to obtain its objectives

(13, see also chapter 8). And, like the Gestapo, the CIA would be,

as it still is, above the law, and its agents would be encouraged to

break the law and to commit crimes against humanity.

"Hitherto acceptable norms of human conduct do not apply.

If the United States is to survive, long-standing American concepts

of ‘fair play’ must be reconsidered. We must develop effective es-

pionage and counterespionage services and must learn to subvert,

sabotage and destroy our enemies by more clever, more sophisti-

cated, and more effective methods than those used against us. It

may become necessary that the American people be made ac-

quainted with, understand and support this fundamentally repug-

nant philosophy." —General James Doolittle, report to President

Eisenhower, 1954.

"The CS is the only part of the IC [intelligence community],

indeed of the government, where hundreds of employees on a daily

basis are directed to break extremely serious laws in countries

around the world. A safe estimate is that several hundred times

every day (easily 100,000 times a year) DO officers engage in highly

illegal activities that not only risk political embarrassment to the

US but also endanger the freedom if not lives of the participating

foreign nationals and, more than occasionally, of the clandestine

officer himself." —Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence,

House of Representatives, 104th Congress, 1996.

"Over the past fifty years, it is now documented, these Ameri-

canized fugitive Nazi war criminals have been involved in, and in

many cases in charge of U.S. government covert operations — in-

ternational weapons smuggling, drug cartels, Central American

death squads, right wing anti-communist dictatorships, LSD mind

control experiments — the Republican National Committee’s Eth-

nic Heritage Councils, and the Presidential campaigns of Richard

Nixon, Ron

spying and murder, but as instruments to be used for gaining in-

credible wealth, as well as political power, and as yet another

means of gaining control over the United States government.

THE BIRTH OF THE CIA

The CIA was the afterbirth of a marriage between Hitler’s

SS, and the OSS (6,10,12). In 1944, William J. Donovan, the cre-

ator of the OSS, and his assistant, Allen Dulles, presented a draft

proposal for the creation of a super-spy agency, "which will pro-

cure intelligence both by overt and covert methods and will at the

same time provide intelligence guidance, determine national intel-

ligence objectives, and correlate the intelligence material collected

by all government agencies."

Three years later, in 1947, President Harry S. Truman, agreed

to the formation of a centralized intelligence agency, with Dulles

acting as a director (14). In 1949, the Central Intelligence Agency

Act (15) was passed, thus creating a spy agency which would be

modeled after the SS, and which would be above the law, and could

carry out its activities in secret and independent of congressional

scrutiny. The act also exempted the CIA from having to disclose its

"organization, functions, officials, titles, salaries, or numbers of

personnel employed."

Dulles immediately began recruiting Nazi terrorists and SS

torturers to fill the ranks, and to teach SS methods to new CIA

recruits (6,10,12). Almost overnight, the CIA became a criminal

enterprise, devoted to protecting the business interests of the Wall

Street elite, including those directed or controlled by Bush,

Harriman, Rockefeller, and the Dulles brothers. Anyone and ev-

eryone challenging or threatening the ability of these men and their

associates to make money and to rape and exploit third world coun-

tries, became dangers to "national security." Opponents would be

eliminated, their governments or organizations toppled, and indig-

enous populations, including workers, murdered or terrorized into

submission—tactics identical to those employed by Hitler’s SS—

the Brotherhood of Death (7).

ald Reagan, and George Bush" (12).

Hitler’s dream and his SS essentially became the CIA.

Indeed, the Dulles, Bush, Harriman, Rockefeller clique, like

Hitler before them, would employ Nazi-CIA terrorists not just for

THE SECRET WARS OF THE CIA

""I worked in the CIA for 13 years" explained John Stockwell,

...Bush, bin Laden, 9-11...

in a speech given on October 10, 1987. In 1978, Stockwell, the

highest-ranking CIA official ever to leave the agency and go pub-

lic, was awarded the Medal of Merit before he resigned.

"I sat on a subcommittee of the NSC [National Security Coun-

cil] so I was like a chief of staff, with the GS-18s, Henry Kissinger,

Bill Colby (the CIA director), making the important decisions. My

job was to put it all together and make it happen and run it" (16).

"I was conditioned by my training, my marine corps train-

ing, and my background, to believe in everything they were saying

about the cold war, and I took the job with great enthusiasm....

only to discover...that nothing we were doing in fact defended U.S.

national security interests."

"The CIA, the state department, works with the death squads.

They don’t meet the death squads on the streets where they’re ac-

tually chopping up people or laying them down on the street and

running trucks over their heads. The CIA people meet the police

chiefs, and the people who run the death squads, and they do liaise

with them, they meet them beside the swimming pool of the villas.

And it’s a sophisticated, civilized kind of relationship. And they

talk about their children, who are going to school at UCLA or

Harvard. They don’t talk about the horrors of what’s being done."

"I went to Nicaragua a total of 7 times. This was a major

covert action. It gave me a chance, after running operations from

Washington, to go to a country that was under attack, to talk to the

leadership, to talk to the people, to look and see what happens when

you give white phosphorous or grenades or bombs to people, and

they go inside a country... It gave me a chance to talk to the people,

who have been shot, or hit, or blown up.... We’re talking about 10

to 20 thousand covert actions."

"The Indonesian covert action of 1965, not only eliminated

the Indonesian communist party, it also eliminated the entire seg-

ment of the population that tended to support the communist party

- the ethnic Chinese, Indonesian Chinese. The CIA’s report put the

number of dead at 800,000 killed. Ralph McGehee," who helped

run that operation, "said that this was a model operation that should

be copied everywhere in the world."

"That’s the sentiment in Washington. If you’re killing 1 to 3

million communists, that’s great. The problem, though, is that these

people killed by our national security activities are not commu-

nists. They’re not Communists, they’re not Communist KGB. In

the field we used to play chess with the KGB officers, and have

drinks with them. It was like professional football players - we

would knock heads on Sunday, maybe in an operation, and then

Tuesday you’re at a banquet together drinking toasts and talking.

The people that are dying are people of the third world. That’s the

common denominator. People that have the misfortune of being

born in the Metumba mountains of the Congo, in the jungles of

Southeast Asia, in the hills of Nicaragua. Far more Catholics than

communists, far more Buddhists than communists. Most of them

couldn’t give you an intelligent definition of communism, or of

capitalism."

"The CIA creates police units that become death squads with

the leaders on the CIA’s payroll, trained by the CIA. We had the

‘public safety program’ going throughout Central and Latin America

for 26 years, in which we taught them to break up subversion by

interrogating people. Interrogation, including torture. Dan Metrione,

the famous exponent of these things, was the master of the busi-

ness, how to apply the right amount of pain, at just the right times,

in order to get the response you want from the individual. They

developed a wire. They gave them crank generators, with ‘U.S.

AID’ written on the side, so the victims would know where these

things came from."

"Now how do you teach torture? Dan Metrione: ‘I can teach

you about torture, but sooner or later you’ll have to get involved.

You’ll have to lay on your hands and try it yourselves.’"

"To teach torture, sometimes they would grab beggars from

off the streets. All they could do was lie there and scream. And

when they would collapse, they would bring in doctors and shoot

them up with vitamin B and rest them up for the next class. And

when they would die, they would mutilate the bodies and throw

them out on the streets, to terrify the population so they would be

afraid of the police and the government. And this is what the CIA

was teaching them to do."

"To destabilize Nicaragua, beginning in 1981, we began

funding Somoza’s ex-national guardsmen, calling them the contras

(the counter-revolutionaries). We created this force, it did not exist

...Bush, bin Laden, 9-11...

-7- until we allocated money. We’ve armed them, put uniforms on their

backs, boots on their feet, given them camps in Honduras to live

in, medical supplies, doctors, training, leadership, and then sent

them in to de-stabilize Nicaragua. Under our direction they sys-

tematically blew up granaries, saw mills, bridges, government of-

fices, schools, health centers. They ambushed trucks so the pro-

duce couldn’t get to market. They raided farms and villages... they

assassinated religious workers, teachers, health workers, elected

officials, government administrators. They use terror, a technique

to traumatize the society so that it can’t function.

"They’d go into villages, haul out families, and with the chil-

dren forced to watch they’d castrate the father, peel the skin off his

face, put a grenade in his mouth and pull the pin. With the children

forced to watch they’d gang-rape the mother, and slash her breasts

off. And sometimes for variety, they make the parents watch while

they do these things to the children. Its been documented that 13,000

people were killed this way in Nicaragua, mostly women and chil-

dren. These are the activities done by these contras. The contras

are the people Reagan and Bush call ‘freedom fighters’" (16).

THE NAZI-REPUBLICAN WING OF THE PARTY

Like Hitler’s Gestapo (7,8), the mission of the CIA had a

definite political purpose which was to put into power those sym-

pathetic to the interests of the Wall Street elite and who supported

the fascist ideology of the Brotherhood. However, it was not just

third world countries which would be subverted, but the govern-

ment of the United States.

As explained by Loftus and Aarons (1) "Dulles had been re-

cruiting Nazis under the cover of the State Department’s Office of

Policy Coordination. Eastern European émigré networks that had

worked first for the SS, then the British, and finally Dulles" were

also recruited and put on the payroll of the State Dept., even though

they were Nazis working for the CIA.

"The CIA did not know it, but Dulles was bringing them to

the United States less for intelligence purposes than for political

advantage. The Nazis’ job quickly became to get out the vote for

the Republicans."

"According to several of our sources among the ‘old spies,’

America Betrayed

Richard Nixon’s political career began in 1945, when he was the

navy officer temporarily assigned to review . . . captured Nazi docu-

ments" (1). The documents revealed the Nazi record of Karl Bless-

ing, "former Reichsbank officer and then head of the Nazi oil car-

tel, Kontinentale Ol A.G. ‘Konti’ was in partnership with Dulles’

principal Nazi client, IG Farben. Dulles" with Nixon’s help "lost

Blessings Nazi party records and personally vouched for Blessing

as an anti-Nazi in order to protect continued control of German oil

interests in the Middle East. Blessing’s Konti was the Nazi link to

Ibn Saud [King of Saudi Arabia] and ARAMCO [the Arabian-

American Oil Company]. If Blessing went down, he could have

taken a lot of people with him, including Allen Dulles," and the

Bush, Harriman, Rockefeller gang.

Naturally, the Dulles, Bush, Harriman, Rockefeller clique

were eager to reward Nixon for his help, and together, they "ar-

ranged financing for Nixon’s first congressional campaign. Nixon,

they believed, would be yet another useful tool in the toolbox they

were constructing in Congress. Some of these tools, i.e. Thomas

Dewey, they hoped to place in the White House. Nixon won, but

Dewey lost the election.

Not surprisingly, Richard Nixon gives a different explana-

tion as to how his relationship with the Bush gang first developed.

In his biography (17), Nixon claims that he saw an advertisement,

in a Los Angeles newspaper, that had been placed there, in 1946,

by the Orange County Republican Party and a wealthy group of

businessmen led by Prescott Bush. Bush and friends, Nixon claims,

wanted a young candidate to run for Congress against the liberal

democratic incumbent. Nixon says he responded to the ad, and

they basically hired him to run for congress, which he did, thus

becoming a congressional mouthpiece for the Bush gang.

Nixon, acting as the pro-business, anti-communist mouth-

piece of the Dulles-Bush-Harriman-Rockefeller clan, was so ef-

fective in this capacity, that he became Eisenhower’s running mate,

in 1952—despite Eisenhower’s dislike of the man.

"In preparation for the 1952 Eisenhower-Nixon campaign,

the Republicans formed an Ethnic Division, which, to put it bluntly,

recruited the ‘displaced Fascists’ who arrived in the United States

after World War II. Like similar migrant organizations in several

...Bush, bin Laden, 9-11...

Western countries, the Ethnic Division attracted a significant num-

ber of Central and Eastern European Nazis, who had been recruited

by the SS as political and police leaders during the Holocaust" (1).

The Nazis worked not only for the Eisenhower-Nixon ticket,

but to put Prescott Bush in the Senate. It was during this same time

period, during the early days of the attempted Nazification of the

Republican party, that Prescott’s son, George H. W. Bush, became

actively involved with Republican politics. It was possibly also

around this same period, that G.H.W. Bush began working in the

CIA.

It was the dream of Dulles and gang, to elevate their man

Nixon, to the White House. In 1960, Nixon ran against Kennedy.

Although the Nazi wing of the party was put at Nixon’s disposal,

he lost. Nixon didn’t blame his loss on the Nazis. Far from it. In-

stead, and at the urgings of Dulles and gang, he intended to make

full use of his Nazi friends the next time he ran for president.

"In 1968 Nixon promised that if he won the presidential elec-

tion, he would create a permanent ethnic council within the Re-

publican party" (1). The word "ethnic" was code for "Nazi." In

the early 1960s, if not before, George H.W. Bush also began play-

ing an active role in the creation of these ethnic councils. Thus he

willingly carried out Nixon’s promise after the 1972 election, while

he served as chairman of the Republican National Committee (1,19).

One of the men Bush helped to recruit was Laszlo Pasztor,

who became the Chairman of Nixon’s Republican Heritage Groups

council. During World War II Pasztor served as a government offi-

cial representing Nazi Hungary in Germany. Other émigré slots

were also filled by the members of various Nazi collaborationist

organizations (1,12,18,19).

As documented in a 1988 study by Russ Bellant of Politi-

cal Research Associates, virtually all of the Fascist organizations

of World War II were welcomed into the Republican party during

the Nixon administration—and George W. Bush, as chairman of

the party, played a major role. Emanuel Jasiuk was representative

of the character of the Republican ethnic leaders that Bush and

Nixon were after. Emanuel Jasiuk, was a notorious mass murderer

who was recruited by the Nazis when they invaded what is today

called the independent nation of Belarus (which during WWII was

My Notes:



So according to America Betrayed, the CIA under George W Bush engaged in terrorism in order to stop communism and promote him to the Presidency. Assination attemps are mentioned, against Ford, Regean as not coincidences. Haven't read it all but the CIA is too damn powerful, and Congress if it has the BALLS must investigate the accusations of its drug dealings to finance itself, the use of funds to bribe Congressmen, and question it's operation in the USA. These are the killers of our Bill of Rights!

On February 7, 1980 Reagan gave a speech in which he

pointed out that Bush was a member of the Trilateral Commission,

which, according to Reagan, "had led to a softening on defense."

George Bush, Reagan pointed out, believed that making money by

doing business with the enemies of America was more important

than defending America. Bush, he implied believed that business

and commerce "should transcend, perhaps, the national defense."

Bush would betray America, Reagan implied, because money

was more important to Bush than principles, honesty, or our na-

tional security.

The Reagan camp also began running political ads, one of

which showed a drawing of Bush juxtaposed above a headline which

read in part: "A coalition of multinational corporate executives,

big-city bankers, and hungry power brokers... want to give you

Fahd family, the bin Laden family, the Emir of Kuwait, and the

Since the 1950s, the CIA had been working on a plan to ex-

tend its grip into the Middle East, and to create terrorist cells, simi-

lar to Operation Condor in South America, and Operation Gladio

in Europe (9,20,23,33,36,48). In the 1970s, part of the plan called

for additional Middle Eastern terrorist cells to be created, controlled

and directed by the CIA, in conjunction with the Saudi, Pakistani,

Iranian, and Iraqi Intelligence services.

Some of these terrorist cells were to be dispatched into the

oil-rich southern states of the Soviet Union whose populations were

predominantly Muslim. These terrorist cells would be employed

to spread terror among civilians and to assassinate government of-

ficials (56). The purpose of these attacks, would be to destabilize

the Soviet Union, and to eventually gain access to these oil-rich

states which would then be exploited.

Other terrorist cells were directed to attack Middle Eastern

and European targets. As was the case with Operation Gladio and

Operation Condor, these terrorist acts would be directed at civil-

ians and were to be blamed on leftists, communists, and the Soviet

Union. Thus, although the CIA was conducting these terrorist op-

erations, the Soviets would be blamed for "fostering, supporting,

and expanding" terrorist activity worldwide" (57,58)—when as

often as not, the terrorists were under CIA control.

Bush was an oil-man. In 1978, the long range objective in

the Middle East and along Russia’s southern border, was to stir up

an Islamic revolution and thus strip the oil-rich states away from

the Soviet sphere of influence (56). "Holy warriors" ("mujahideen")

financed, trained, and armed by the CIA would be the vanguard,

and one of its leaders would be a young charismatic Saudi multi-

millionaire, Osama bin Laden—a member of the bin laden family,

with whom the Bush family had been doing business (59). In 1979,

Osama bin Laden, who was representing his family company in

Istanbul, began working with the CIA to recruit "Arab-Muslim

volunteers for Afghan’s resistance against the Red Army" (60).



On February 7, 1980 Reagan gave a speech in which he

pointed out that Bush was a member of the Trilateral Commission,

which, according to Reagan, "had led to a softening on defense."

George Bush, Reagan pointed out, believed that making money by

doing business with the enemies of America was more important

than defending America. Bush, he implied believed that business

and commerce "should transcend, perhaps, the national defense."

Bush would betray America, Reagan implied, because money

was more important to Bush than principles, honesty, or our na-

tional security.

The Reagan camp also began running political ads, one of

which showed a drawing of Bush juxtaposed above a headline which

read in part: "A coalition of multinational corporate executives,

big-city bankers, and hungry power brokers... want to give you

George Bush... their purpose is to control the American govern-

ment."

Since 1996, the task of the CIA to coopt the mass media has

been made much simpler. Less than two dozen corporations now

control or own over 90% of the nearly 10,000 newspapers, maga-

zines, and radio and TV stations in America (18).

Controlling the media is a classic Nazi tactic. "Propaganda"

Hitler once said, "is the most effective form of terrorism."

Despite the efforts of the Ford-Rockefeller White House, the

Senate and House each established their own Select Committee on

Intelligence Activities, chaired by Frank Church and Otis Pike (re-

THE CIA-CONTROLLED MEDIA: PROPAGANDA AS

TERROR

178

In 1974, there were only the grossest hints as to the CIA’s

involvement in assassinations, torture, mind-control







experiments,

and the manipulation of the media. It was to be the job of

Rockefeller, as well as Rumsfeld and Cheney, to cover all tracks

and to stop any House or Senate investigation, or at least throw it

off the track (15).

179

For example, there

is only a brief mention of "Operation Stay Behind" within the

Church reports (Pike’s report being suppressed). Operation Stay

Behind was a CIA terrorist operation aimed at the citizens and poli-

ticians of European countries and their democratically elected lead-

ers (20).

According to the 1976 Senate report on the CIA by the Church

Committee, this program was first conceived by the US Joint Chiefs

of Staff was staffed and funded by the CIA, and put into operation

in 1948 by the National Security Council.

Essentially, the CIA was using Nazis, Neo-Nazis, SS-offic-

ers, and CIA-trained terrorists to indiscriminately murder Euro-

pean men, women and children, and to assassinate or otherwise

remove or eliminate communist, socialist, and left-wing politicians.

In Italy, this program was referred to as "Operation Gladio

33). Operation Gladio had engaged in a reign of terrorist bombings

across the country that left at least thousands injured and dead. The bombings

were blamed on the extreme left as part of a strategy to mold public opinion

to the idea of an alternative government taking power by force. The Gladio

personnel created a parallel government called P2 (Propaganda Duo), a neo-

Nazi secret society composed of most of the country’s top industrialists, bank-

ers, and diplomats. P2 had close connections with the CIA and carried out

drug smuggling missions and assassinations for them. PT not only infiltrated

the Red Brigades but took over the organization, and carried out the murder

of Aldo Moro in 1978. Colonel Oswald Le Winter of the CIA, who served as

U.S. liaison officer with Gladio, has stated that the planning staff of the Red

Brigades was made up of CIA intelligence agents. Gladio carried out the

1980 bomb attack on Bologna Railway station in which 85 people were killed

and hundreds injured. Subsequent investigation led to the exposure of much

of the conspiracy and in consequence, the CIA arranged for P2’s Grandmas-

ter, fascist Lucio Gelli to escape to Argentina.

ply as "Agent Zero" described how [ex-Swedish Prime Minister Olaf] Palme

had been caught in a deal between the CIA and Iran to release American

hostages in Tehran. ‘Palme was a fly in the ointment so we got P2 to rub him

out," the agent said. The second programme, which showed the gaunt silhou-

ette of ‘Agent Zero One’, alleged that P2 was not wound up in the mid-1980s,

after the arrest of its leader Licio Gelli. "It still exists. It calls itself P7," he

said. According to the agent, the lodge is still functioning with branches in

Austria, Switzerland and East Germany. ‘Zero One’ has now been revealed

by the Italian press to be Dick Brenneke, allegedly a career CIA officer"

(Richard Bassett, Times, 24/7/90). "In the programme, Mr. Brenneke alleged

that, throughout the 1970’s the CIA had made large sums of money available

to the subversive Masonic Lodge, P2, widely believed to have been involved

in the August, 1980 Bologna train station bombing in which 85 people were

killed. Furthermore Mr. Brenneke claimed that, not only does the CIA con-

tinue to secretly finance a revived P2, but that it was involved in the 1986

killing of the Swedish Prime Minister, Mr. Olaf Palme. According to Mr.

Brenneke, P2, under the guidance of its Grand master, Mr. Licio Gelli, used

some of the finance made available by the CIA to set up agencies in West

Germany, Austria and Switzerland. These agencies in turn were used by P2

to set up the assassination of Mr. Palme, on the orders of the CIA. Finally,

and perhaps most sensationally, Mr. Brenneke alleged that President Bush,

then director of the CIA, not only knew about these CIA activities in Italy

(during the late 1970s and early 1980s) but was in fact one of the master-

minds behind them. In the 1976 general election, the huge success of the

Communist Party...encouraged some to believe that Italy might be close to

voting in its first ever Communist government. In order to forestall this pos-

sibility, the CIA allegedly sponsored a series of right wing terrorist attacks,

via Mr. Gelli’s P2...The CIA denied the charges and said Mr. Branneke had

never worked for the agency" (Paddy Agnew, Irish Times, 7/24/90). "In a

four part special on RAI, the main Italian state-run television network,

Brenneke claimed he had been making payments to members of P2, a right-

wing Masonic lodge, on behalf of the CIA from l969 to 1980. He said he had

made payments which ranged from $lm to $10m a month and were part of

the struggle against communism. He said P2 was also involved in arms and

drugs trafficking for the CIA...The programme sparked a political storm in

Italy...However a note of caution....Earlier this year he was put on trial in

Oregon for allegedly lying under oath about his claims that Bush traveled to

Paris in 1980 to make a deal with the Iranians over the American hostages.

Brenneke was acquitted on all charges"(Mark Hosenball, Sunday Times, 7/

29/90).

(which means "sword"). In Austria it was named "Schwert"

("sword"). In France it was called "Glaive" ("sword"). It was called

"Operation Sheepskin" in Greece. "Sveaborg" in Sweden. In Bel-

gium, Operation Stay Behind had the name: "SDR-8." Likewise,

in Switzerland it was given an alpha-numerical name: "P26."

economy "scream" in Chile prior to the overthrow of Allende, now Angola

was the target. The collapse of the Portuguese regime, and the subsequent

likelihood of her African colonies gaining independence and control over

their own destiny, was an anathema to the Wall Street elite. This led to a

decision to fund a civil war in Angola, and to install a Wall Street-friendly

military dictatorship rather than allow elections which might lead to "leftist"

regimes gaining power. However, in December, 1975 the Clark Amendment

was passed by the Senate, which explicitly cut off US funding and banning

CIA operations for the military actions in Angola which had erupted in civil

war with the end of Portuguese colonial rule. Nevertheless, even after the

Clark Amendment became law on February 9, 1976, Bush defied the law and

directed the CIA to continue providing planeloads of weapons and to make

large cash payoffs to pro-western terrorist factions who were murdering, tor-

turing, starving, and terrorizing the men, women, and children of Angola.

However, as this had to be done covertly and secretly, the CIA and Republi-

can leadership controlling the U.S. government sought to use two "surro-

gates" Britain and South Africa, to provide soldiers to fight Wall Street’s war

by proxy.

Regardless of country, Operation Stay Behind was run by

the CIA and British Intelligence under the umbrella of NATO, and

involved the use of snipers, police officers, and para-military units

to kill people at random and to conduct brutal raids on supermar-

kets, theaters, and other public places (21-28). In one series of at-

tacks, in Brussels in the mid 1980’s, 28 people were murdered while

shopping at local supermarkets. Again, the purpose of these attacks

was to strengthen the hand of right-wing governments and to pre-

vent left-wing governments or politicians from coming to power.

It was the duty of Bush, Kissinger, Rockefeller, Cheney, and

Rumsfeld, to try to cover up these crimes. Indeed Rumsfeld (the

Secretary of Defense when the U.S. was attacked on 9/11) had served

as U.S. Ambassador to NATO in Brussels, Belgium in 1973 and

1974—when some of the worst atrocities were taking place— and

thus had a special personal interest in preventing any damaging dis-

closures.

Operation Sword ("Gladio/Schwert/Glaive, etc.") was an out-

growth of Dulles’ "Operation Stay Behind." Initially, this program

served to recruit high ranking Nazis and SS Gestapo agents into the

OSS and the CIA after the close of WWII. By 1952, Dulles and his

CIA had created a secret guerrilla terrorist army whose primary mis-

sion was terrorism and assassination—often of random targets who

might be murdered by snipers, as they shopped or walked down the

street. Dulles believed that through random acts of terror, left-wing

governments could be overthrown, or prevented from ever coming

to power if the blame for those terrorist acts could be placed on left-

ists (20). Right wing governments are always the beneficiaries of

terrorism.

Operation Sword was first put into operation in Italy, in 1947.

Italian citizens were gunned down by snipers, trains were derailed,

and buildings and planes were blown up by CIA-Nazi agents, and

then blamed on "communists." The purpose of this terrorist cam-

paign was to prevent a communist electoral victory in the 1947 Ital-

ian elections.

.

These and other acts of random terror (Operation Stay Be-

hind), although directed by the CIA (in conjunction with British In-

telligence) were administered under the protective umbrella of the

Clandestine Co-ordinating Committee at the Supreme Headquarters

Allied Powers Europe "SHAPE" (22). SHAPE would later became

the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

Although these CIA-terrorist cells were spread all over Eu-

rope, the training bases were located in Germany, Italy and France.

Likewise, these terrorist operations were directed and funded by CIA

agents working in the US Embassies in Rome, Paris, and Berlin.

These same CIA agents not only controlled these terrorists cells, but

had infiltrated and often directed the Intelligence services of these

and other countries (23).

In other words, the purpose of Operation Gladio was to use

terror and murder not to combat any external threat, but to combat

internal threats by using terrorism. However, the targets of these

terrorist acts would not be opposition politicians per se, but rather,

the citizens of the state.

Gladio also served as a useful weapon to keep the Italian elec-

torate under control. Citizens would be shot and killed by snipers,

they and their families might be blown up while strolling down the

street. No one was safe. Even police were targeted (28).

Rember the Malvo shootings?

"Mr. George Bush of the CIA" (6) had been a CIA agent

since at least 1960. In all likelihood, he never ceased to be a mem-

ber of this Nazi-like terrorist organization, even while serving

as a congressman or chairman of the Republican Party.

In the 1960s and 1970s, George Bush, and the CIA, were

dedicated to serving their own financial, personal, and political

interests as well as those of the Wall Street elite. Of course, they

did so in the name of "national security." Ostensibly, their goal the

reason they authorized the murder of innocent men, women, and

children, was to fight communism.

George H.W. Bush was rejected yet again. The people and

the Republican party refused him the Republican nomination for

President. Bush was rejected not just because Ronald Reagan was

the superior man and the superior candidate, but also because of

the persistent questions about slush funds, illegal activities,

coverups, and his role in the "Trilateral Commission" (39)

On February 7, 1980 Reagan gave a speech in which he

pointed out that Bush was a member of the Trilateral Commission,

which, according to Reagan, "had led to a softening on defense."

George Bush, Reagan pointed out, believed that making money by

doing business with the enemies of America was more important

than defending America. Bush, he implied believed that business

and commerce "should transcend, perhaps, the national defense."

Bush would betray America, Reagan implied, because money

was more important to Bush than principles, honesty, or our na-

tional security.

The Reagan camp also began running political ads, one of

which showed a drawing of Bush juxtaposed above a headline which

read in part: "A coalition of multinational corporate executives,

big-city bankers, and hungry power brokers... want to give you

George Bush... their purpose is to control the American govern-

ment."

Reagan got the nomination, and Bush, with the help of his

Wall Street, CIA, Skull and Bones network, began working full tilt

on Reagan’s entourage to convince them that having Bush on the

ticket would help elect Reagan. Reagan, however, did not like and

did not trust George Bush. In the days just before the Republican

convention, Reagan is quoted as saying: "I want to be very frank

with you. I have strong reservations about George Bush. I’m con-

cerned about turning the country over to him."

Reagan didn’t just distrust him, he thought Bush was an ef-

feminate "wimp."

Finally, at the very last minute, despite Reagan’s distrust and

scorn, Bush became his running mate.

In November of 1980, Reagan won the Presidency in a land-

slide. Bush was sworn in as vice-president of the United States on

January 20.

the persistent questions about slush funds, illegal activities,

coverups, and his role in the "Trilateral Commission" (39)

On February 7, 1980 Reagan gave a speech in which he

pointed out that Bush was a member of the Trilateral Commission,

which, according to Reagan, "had led to a softening on defense."

George Bush, Reagan pointed out, believed that making money by

doing business with the enemies of America was more important

than defending America. Bush, he implied believed that business

and commerce "should transcend, perhaps, the national defense."

Bush would betray America, Reagan implied, because money

was more important to Bush than principles, honesty, or our na-

tional security.

The Reagan camp also began running political ads, one of

which showed a drawing of Bush juxtaposed above a headline which

read in part: "A coalition of multinational corporate executives,

big-city bankers, and hungry power brokers... want to give you

George Bush... their purpose is to control the American govern-

ment."

Reagan got the nomination, and Bush, with the help of his

Wall Street, CIA, Skull and Bones network, began working full tilt

on Reagan’s entourage to convince them that having Bush on the

ticket would help elect Reagan. Reagan, however, did not like and

did not trust George Bush. In the days just before the Republican

convention, Reagan is quoted as saying: "I want to be very frank

with you. I have strong reservations about George Bush. I’m con-

cerned about turning the country over to him."

Reagan didn’t just distrust him, he thought Bush was an ef-

feminate "wimp."

Finally, at the very last minute, despite Reagan’s distrust and

scorn, Bush became his running mate.

In November of 1980, Reagan won the Presidency in a land-

slide. Bush was sworn in as vice-president of the United States on

January 20.

THE CIA-CONTROLLED MEDIA: PROPAGANDA AS

TERROR

178

In 1974, there were only the grossest hints as to the CIA’s

involvement in assassinations, torture, mind-control







experiments,

and the manipulation of the media. It was to be the job of

Rockefeller, as well as Rumsfeld and Cheney, to cover all tracks

and to stop any House or Senate investigation, or at least throw it

off the track (15).

179

For example, there

is only a brief mention of "Operation Stay Behind" within the

Church reports (Pike’s report being suppressed). Operation Stay

Behind was a CIA terrorist operation aimed at the citizens and poli-

ticians of European countries and their democratically elected lead-

ers (20).

According to the 1976 Senate report on the CIA by the Church

Committee, this program was first conceived by the US Joint Chiefs

of Staff was staffed and funded by the CIA, and put into operation

in 1948 by the National Security Council.

Essentially, the CIA was using Nazis, Neo-Nazis, SS-offic-

ers, and CIA-trained terrorists to indiscriminately murder Euro-

pean men, women and children, and to assassinate or otherwise

remove or eliminate communist, socialist, and left-wing politicians.

In Italy, this program was referred to as "Operation Gladio

33). Operation Gladio had engaged in a reign of terrorist bombings

across the country that left at least thousands injured and dead. The bombings

were blamed on the extreme left as part of a strategy to mold public opinion

to the idea of an alternative government taking power by force. The Gladio

personnel created a parallel government called P2 (Propaganda Duo), a neo-

Nazi secret society composed of most of the country’s top industrialists, bank-

ers, and diplomats. P2 had close connections with the CIA and carried out

drug smuggling missions and assassinations for them. PT not only infiltrated

the Red Brigades but took over the organization, and carried out the murder

of Aldo Moro in 1978. Colonel Oswald Le Winter of the CIA, who served as

U.S. liaison officer with Gladio, has stated that the planning staff of the Red

Brigades was made up of CIA intelligence agents. Gladio carried out the

1980 bomb attack on Bologna Railway station in which 85 people were killed

and hundreds injured. Subsequent investigation led to the exposure of much

of the conspiracy and in consequence, the CIA arranged for P2’s Grandmas-

ter, fascist Lucio Gelli to escape to Argentina.

ply as "Agent Zero" described how [ex-Swedish Prime Minister Olaf] Palme

had been caught in a deal between the CIA and Iran to release American

hostages in Tehran. ‘Palme was a fly in the ointment so we got P2 to rub him

out," the agent said. The second programme, which showed the gaunt silhou-

ette of ‘Agent Zero One’, alleged that P2 was not wound up in the mid-1980s,

after the arrest of its leader Licio Gelli. "It still exists. It calls itself P7," he

said. According to the agent, the lodge is still functioning with branches in

Austria, Switzerland and East Germany. ‘Zero One’ has now been revealed

by the Italian press to be Dick Brenneke, allegedly a career CIA officer"

(Richard Bassett, Times, 24/7/90). "In the programme, Mr. Brenneke alleged

that, throughout the 1970’s the CIA had made large sums of money available

to the subversive Masonic Lodge, P2, widely believed to have been involved

in the August, 1980 Bologna train station bombing in which 85 people were

killed. Furthermore Mr. Brenneke claimed that, not only does the CIA con-

tinue to secretly finance a revived P2, but that it was involved in the 1986

killing of the Swedish Prime Minister, Mr. Olaf Palme. According to Mr.

Brenneke, P2, under the guidance of its Grand master, Mr. Licio Gelli, used

some of the finance made available by the CIA to set up agencies in West

Germany, Austria and Switzerland. These agencies in turn were used by P2

to set up the assassination of Mr. Palme, on the orders of the CIA. Finally,

and perhaps most sensationally, Mr. Brenneke alleged that President Bush,

then director of the CIA, not only knew about these CIA activities in Italy

(during the late 1970s and early 1980s) but was in fact one of the master-

minds behind them. In the 1976 general election, the huge success of the

Communist Party...encouraged some to believe that Italy might be close to

voting in its first ever Communist government. In order to forestall this pos-

sibility, the CIA allegedly sponsored a series of right wing terrorist attacks,

via Mr. Gelli’s P2...The CIA denied the charges and said Mr. Branneke had

never worked for the agency" (Paddy Agnew, Irish Times, 7/24/90). "In a

four part special on RAI, the main Italian state-run television network,

Brenneke claimed he had been making payments to members of P2, a right-

wing Masonic lodge, on behalf of the CIA from l969 to 1980. He said he had

made payments which ranged from $lm to $10m a month and were part of

the struggle against communism. He said P2 was also involved in arms and

drugs trafficking for the CIA...The programme sparked a political storm in

Italy...However a note of caution....Earlier this year he was put on trial in

Oregon for allegedly lying under oath about his claims that Bush traveled to

Paris in 1980 to make a deal with the Iranians over the American hostages.

Brenneke was acquitted on all charges"(Mark Hosenball, Sunday Times, 7/

29/90).

(which means "sword"). In Austria it was named "Schwert"

("sword"). In France it was called "Glaive" ("sword"). It was called

"Operation Sheepskin" in Greece. "Sveaborg" in Sweden. In Bel-

gium, Operation Stay Behind had the name: "SDR-8." Likewise,

in Switzerland it was given an alpha-numerical name: "P26."

economy "scream" in Chile prior to the overthrow of Allende, now Angola

was the target. The collapse of the Portuguese regime, and the subsequent

likelihood of her African colonies gaining independence and control over

their own destiny, was an anathema to the Wall Street elite. This led to a

decision to fund a civil war in Angola, and to install a Wall Street-friendly

military dictatorship rather than allow elections which might lead to "leftist"

regimes gaining power. However, in December, 1975 the Clark Amendment

was passed by the Senate, which explicitly cut off US funding and banning

CIA operations for the military actions in Angola which had erupted in civil

war with the end of Portuguese colonial rule. Nevertheless, even after the

Clark Amendment became law on February 9, 1976, Bush defied the law and

directed the CIA to continue providing planeloads of weapons and to make

large cash payoffs to pro-western terrorist factions who were murdering, tor-

turing, starving, and terrorizing the men, women, and children of Angola.

However, as this had to be done covertly and secretly, the CIA and Republi-

can leadership controlling the U.S. government sought to use two "surro-

gates" Britain and South Africa, to provide soldiers to fight Wall Street’s war

by proxy.

Regardless of country, Operation Stay Behind was run by

the CIA and British Intelligence under the umbrella of NATO, and

involved the use of snipers, police officers, and para-military units

to kill people at random and to conduct brutal raids on supermar-

kets, theaters, and other public places (21-28). In one series of at-

tacks, in Brussels in the mid 1980’s, 28 people were murdered while

shopping at local supermarkets. Again, the purpose of these attacks

was to strengthen the hand of right-wing governments and to pre-

vent left-wing governments or politicians from coming to power.

It was the duty of Bush, Kissinger, Rockefeller, Cheney, and

Rumsfeld, to try to cover up these crimes. Indeed Rumsfeld (the

Secretary of Defense when the U.S. was attacked on 9/11) had served

as U.S. Ambassador to NATO in Brussels, Belgium in 1973 and

1974—when some of the worst atrocities were taking place— and

thus had a special personal interest in preventing any damaging dis-

closures.

Operation Sword ("Gladio/Schwert/Glaive, etc.") was an out-

growth of Dulles’ "Operation Stay Behind." Initially, this program

served to recruit high ranking Nazis and SS Gestapo agents into the

OSS and the CIA after the close of WWII. By 1952, Dulles and his

CIA had created a secret guerrilla terrorist army whose primary mis-

sion was terrorism and assassination—often of random targets who

might be murdered by snipers, as they shopped or walked down the

street. Dulles believed that through random acts of terror, left-wing

governments could be overthrown, or prevented from ever coming

to power if the blame for those terrorist acts could be placed on left-

ists (20). Right wing governments are always the beneficiaries of

terrorism.

Operation Sword was first put into operation in Italy, in 1947.

Italian citizens were gunned down by snipers, trains were derailed,

and buildings and planes were blown up by CIA-Nazi agents, and

then blamed on "communists." The purpose of this terrorist cam-

paign was to prevent a communist electoral victory in the 1947 Ital-

ian elections.

.

These and other acts of random terror (Operation Stay Be-

hind), although directed by the CIA (in conjunction with British In-

telligence) were administered under the protective umbrella of the

Clandestine Co-ordinating Committee at the Supreme Headquarters

Allied Powers Europe "SHAPE" (22). SHAPE would later became

the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

Although these CIA-terrorist cells were spread all over Eu-

rope, the training bases were located in Germany, Italy and France.

Likewise, these terrorist operations were directed and funded by CIA

agents working in the US Embassies in Rome, Paris, and Berlin.

These same CIA agents not only controlled these terrorists cells, but

had infiltrated and often directed the Intelligence services of these

and other countries (23).

In other words, the purpose of Operation Gladio was to use

terror and murder not to combat any external threat, but to combat

internal threats by using terrorism. However, the targets of these

terrorist acts would not be opposition politicians per se, but rather,

the citizens of the state.

Gladio also served as a useful weapon to keep the Italian elec-

torate under control. Citizens would be shot and killed by snipers,

they and their families might be blown up while strolling down the

street. No one was safe. Even police were targeted (28).

Rember the Malvo shootings?

"Mr. George Bush of the CIA" (6) had been a CIA agent

since at least 1960. In all likelihood, he never ceased to be a mem-

ber of this Nazi-like terrorist organization, even while serving

as a congressman or chairman of the Republican Party.

In the 1960s and 1970s, George Bush, and the CIA, were

dedicated to serving their own financial, personal, and political

interests as well as those of the Wall Street elite. Of course, they

did so in the name of "national security." Ostensibly, their goal the

reason they authorized the murder of innocent men, women, and

children, was to fight communism.

George H.W. Bush was rejected yet again. The people and

the Republican party refused him the Republican nomination for

President. Bush was rejected not just because Ronald Reagan was

the superior man and the superior candidate, but also because of

the persistent questions about slush funds, illegal activities,

big-city bankers, and hungry power brokers... want to give you

George Bush... their purpose is to control the American govern-

ment."

Reagan got the nomination, and Bush, with the help of his

Wall Street, CIA, Skull and Bones network, began working full tilt

on Reagan’s entourage to convince them that having Bush on the

ticket would help elect Reagan. Reagan, however, did not like and

did not trust George Bush. In the days just before the Republican

convention, Reagan is quoted as saying: "I want to be very frank

with you. I have strong reservations about George Bush. I’m con-

cerned about turning the country over to him."

Reagan didn’t just distrust him, he thought Bush was an ef-

feminate "wimp."

Finally, at the very last minute, despite Reagan’s distrust and

scorn, Bush became his running mate.

In November of 1980, Reagan won the Presidency in a land-

slide. Bush was sworn in as vice-president of the United States on

January 20.

CIA And Mossad
01 Jul 2006
Remember the word "terrorist" was coined by the British Press to describe the Israelis who dressed up as Arabs and bombed the King David hotel, killing Israelis and Arabs, and Bits togain independence from Great Britain?

Remember the 5 dancing Israelis dressed in Palestianian attire, caught celebrating and photographing the destruction of the Trade Center on 911. They were found with traces of explosives in their urban moving van, and traces of anthra at their headquarters. They were given lie detector tests, and failed. Even found out they were Mossad agents. Yet the authorities, Michael
Chertoff only deported vthem. Same Chertoff which knew about Melviun Lattimore.

Shows the CIA works with the
Mossad too, probably other world intelligence offices.

This is a goood argument for state sponsored terror to keep the international corporate business world going, but the highest officials of our land are guilty of treason, by their failure to protect the Constitution and the premis of democratic governments, governments are of the people, by the people and for the people. We enter into government for mutual securiuty not the attack of a government on its own people.

Frederick/Maryland. More than 40 years after his death, the body of former CIA scientist Dr. Frank Olson has been exhumed. Olson’s son Eric is convinced his father was murdered by agents of the American government because he wanted to leave the CIA. Dr. Frank Olson was an expert for anthrax and other biological weapons and had top security clearance. Forensic pathologists at George Washington University performed an autopsy and concluded that Olson probably was the victim of a violent crime.

00.50 Voice of Eric Olson
“I was strongly identifying with him, I loved him. And I am sure that's why in the end I came to take on this task trying to figure out what had become of him.”

Title: “Code Name: Aartichoke.”

1.36
It has been eight years since the exhumation. Eric Olson is still searching for the reasons behind his father’s death in November of 1953. Eric was nine years old at the time. It’s a quest he inherited as the oldest of three children. To solve the mystery of their father’s death.

2.01 Voice of Eric Olson
“My real memories of my father are not very many or very clear, because the trauma of his death really darkened a lot of these memories. His death was so dark and so unmentionable. After he died, it was a subject one couldn't really go near.”

2.25
Eric Olson has returned to live in the house his father built for the family in Frederick in 1950. Back then, Olson senior was one of the biochemists responsible for the biological weapons center the U.S. army ran nearby. The anthrax letters that killed five and caused illness to several others have haunted Eric ever since. Could there be a connection between his father’s death five decades ago and the acts of terror taking place today? (3.00)

3.15
The deadly disease that frightened America after the terrorist attacks on September 11th seems to have come from the same US Army Laboratory in Frederick where Olson had worked: Fort Detrick.


3.31
The biological weapons lab was founded in 1943. At the time, the Americans feared Hitler might attack the allied troops with a virus or bacteria. They quickly produced gas masks and anthrax weapons, in order to be able to strike back in kind.


3.58
Dr. Frank Olson, an army captain and one of the first scientists at Fort Detrick, worked together with Norman Cournoyer. The two became good friends. Their first sons were born within a few days of each other in 1944.

4.18 Voice of Norman Cournoyer/Friend of Frank Olson:
“We worked about five months in this thing called aerosols to see if we could test gas masks and impregnated clothing to see how good they were. And then one day he was transferred to working on hot agents. He said: 'Norm, how about working for me in the hot stuff?' That's how we always referred to it. N was Anthrax, X was botulism and so forth.” (4.53)

4.55
Christmas 1947. The war is finally over. Norman and his family celebrate together with Alice and Frank Olson and their children.

5.07 Voice of Norman Cournoyer/Friend of Frank Olson:
“Were we close? Yes! Very, very close, every day of the week for two and a half years. You are going to expect us to be close.”

5.17
Among the things his father left behind, Eric Olson found some home movies and slides. At first he didn’t pay them much attention. But today, he sees that material from a different point of view. Might it contain any indication of the secret anthrax research his father was doing after the war?


5.35
Frank Olson made a hobby of home movies. These scenes reveal nothing of his secret task involving deadly weapons. They show the perfect world of a young father, captured with the latest 8-mm camera to hit the market.


5.49
Frank Olson also used photography. He brought home a lot of slides from his many travels. His photographs also primarily show private moments.


6.02
Frank with his wife Alice and son Eric in 1945. Both in 1947 with son Eric and daughter Lisa. Christmas 1949 in a tuxedo. Alice had given birth to their third child, Nils, in the meantime.

6.19 Voice of Eric Olson:
“The whole subject of the relationship between a wife and a husband who is doing top secret, classified work is a subject one could discuss at some length. The wife develops uncanny kind of intuitions, about all the things that are not being said and she knows the limits of what she can ask. And for quite a long time, possibly ever since my father began working at Detrick, the whole business about the monkey dying was a very delicate matter for him.


When he would come home for lunch and have a certain kind of expression, she would immediately know that this meant that this morning all the monkeys had died, which meant that the experiment had been a success.”


7.06
Arthur Vidich is Frank Olson’s brother-in-law. Their families regularly spent their summer vacation together. Vidich remembers Frank Olson as an American patriot, who was enthusiastic about working for the Army’s biological weapons program.


7.22 Voice of Arthur Vidich/Brother-in-law of Frank Olson
“He was a person who believed in what he was doing, who felt the work that he was doing at the Center in Frederick was important for the United States. He considered himself a terribly loyal and patriotic person. That kind of an attitude of loyalty was one way of expressing your Americanism.”


7.58
Dr. Frank Olson had worked for the US Army’s biological weapons laboratory for exactly ten years when he died in New York in the wee hours of November 28, 1953. He spent the night at the Hotel Pennsylvania, along with a CIA agent who was there to guard him. That night, Frank Olson plunged to his death from his room on the hotel’s thirteenth floor. Through a closed window, it was said.


8.31
“Army Bacteriologist Dies In Plunge From New York Hotel”.

Nils, the youngest of Olson’s three children, scribbled on the clipping with a crayon.


8.43 Voice of Eric Olson:
“I was simply told that ‘Your father has had an accident,’ and that ‘he has died.’ The only detail that I was then given was that he had fallen or jumped out of a window. I remember quite clearly just being quite stupefied by this.


As a nine-year-old I was old enough to have some idea of cause and effect. And I had no idea what does it mean to fall out of a window. How you fall out of a window in the middle of the night. What is that?”

9.20
Eric didn’t understand.

And for his mother, the subject of his father’s death became a taboo.


9.33
The search for the circumstances surrounding the mysterious death of Dr. Frank Olson begins in 1945, with the liberation of the concentration camp at Dachau, Germany. American troops discovered the corpses of hundreds of prisoners who had been murdered or starved to death. Many of the survivors told US doctors about cruel experiments the camp’s doctors carried out using disease germs and various drugs.


9.59
A few weeks later, at Kransberg Castle north of Frankfurt, the scientific elite of Nazi Germany is arrested and questioned by American officers. The name of the project is “Operation Dustbin.” The American military hopes to evaluate and exploit the findings German researchers made during the war. Among the prisoners at Kransberg Castle is rocket scientist Professor Hermann Oberth, who collects autographs from his colleagues.

10.33
Also at Kransberg Castle: Some of the leading scientific experts in Nazi Germany had been involved in biological warfare, testing the effects of deadly germs on human beings in Dachau and other concentration camps. One of them was Professor Kurt Blome. Blome was the Third Reich’s Deputy Surgeon General and the man behind German research into biological weapons.


10.55
Blome will be among those charged in the case against concentration camp doctors brought before the military tribunal in Nuremberg. He will face the death penalty.

11.07
In spite of the fact that there is enough evidence against him, Kurt Blome will be acquitted in Nuremberg. The Americans have other plans for him.

11.21 Voice of Professor Kurt Blome: Untertitel // Subtitles
1) I stated publicly and openly that I was a conscientious National Socialist…


2) and a follower of Adolf Hitler.


11.29 Voice of Norman Cournoyer
“We were interested in anyone who did work in biological warfare. Did they want to use that? The Nazis? Yes, absolutely! They wanted to use anything that killed people. Anything!”

11.48
The Americans save Kurt Blome, seen here on the left, from death by hanging. In turn, he provides them with information about the Nazi biological weapons program. One of the specialists interrogating Blome is Donald Falconer, a friend and colleague of Frank Olson. Falconer is responsible for developing anthrax bombs.


12.12
Today, more than 50 years later, Donald Falconer lives in a convalescent home not far from Frederick.

12.22
Eric Olson has visited Falconer several times, hoping his father’s old friend might one day confide a crucial secret in him. But Falconer refuses to say anything, feeling bound by his military oath, and doesn’t want to be interviewed.


12.45
In one of his father film’s, immediately following images of his grandfather, Eric discovers a sequence that seems to show secret crop-dusting flights that took place in 1947. Using the findings of Blome and other Nazi scientists, the Americans experimented with artificial diseases capable of destroying crops.


13.07
After this short clip, more family pictures of the children.


13.15
Meanwhile, in Fort Detrick, a massive arms program is taking place with bacteriological weapons, primarily anthrax spores, which have proven to be highly resistant and therefore suitable for biological warfare.


13.29
Anthrax was cultivated in this building, then placed in bombs. The Americans are concerned about the Soviets’ biological arsenal. If the cold war should ever turn hot, deadly bacteria might be used as weapons. The army demands ample weapons at the ready.

13.50
Frank Olson often uses the Air Force to test germ warfare in the field, for example on the Caribbean island of Antigua. These tests are carried out to monitor the spread of diseases under realistic conditions. Most of the tests Olson’s team carries out in the Caribbean and on the Alaskan tundra deal with relatively harmless bacteria, but some tests are conducted using actual pathogens – called “hot stuff.”

14.20 Voice of Norman Cournoyer:
“We did not use anthrax, we used bacillus globigii which is very similar a spore as Anthrax is. So to that extent we did do something that was not kosher. We picked it up all over. It was picked up months after it.”

14.50
It’s an easy-going life they lead, but they have a secret mission. In California, Olson and his team drive up the Pacific coast in a yellow convertible to prepare an experiment to take place over San Francisco Bay. Spores will be released in order to test the city’s vulnerability to an act of Russian sabotage. Frank Olson loves life and has little interest in following rules. His unconventional manner seems inconsistent with his job working for the army.

15.21
In October of 1949, Olson is suspected of disclosing government secrets. He is interrogated by military intelligence.

15.30
(visual texts) “Olson was mildly impatient with the questioning conducted during the course of this interview. This attitude is regarded as typical by persons at Detrick who are acquainted with him."


“Olson is violently opposed to control of scientific research, either
military or otherwise, and opposes supervision of his work. He does not follow orders, and has had numerous altercations with MP's (...)”


15.52 Voice of Norman Cournoyer/Friend of Frank Olson:
“He was very, very open and not scared to say what he thought. For that matter to the contrary. He did not give a damn. Frank Olson pulled no punches at any time. And I don’t know. That’s what they were scared of, I am sure. He did speak up any time he wanted to. Was he gonna be caught on this? Could be. Could be.”

16.22
As the scientist responsible for biological warfare experiments, Frank Olson was among the most important holders of confidential information during the Cold War.


November 1953. Four years after he was suspected for disclosing secrets – an accusation that was never proved: During a trip to New York, Olson is accompanied by a CIA agent who watches him constantly, never leaving his side. Olson and the CIA agent take a room in the famous Hotel Pennsylvania. So, what are they doing in New York?


17.00
Armand Pastore is the manager of the hotel. He is on duty that night, when Frank Olson falls from the 13th floor, landing on the sidewalk in front of the hotel.


17.12 Voice of Armand Pastore/Former hotel manager:
“He was laying there looking at me, trying to speak to me, very earnest
look in his eyes, wide open .... but there was blood everywhere: blood from his nose, blood from his eyes, blood from his ears, there was a bone protruding from his left arm, sticking straight out. And I kept trying to speak to him, but we were not really communicating, because I could not understand anything he was saying, and then finally he died.”

17.48
Pastore notifies the police and accompanies them to the 13th floor. In the meantime, he has determined that Olson must have fallen to his death from 1018A, and that there was probably another person in the room at the time.


18.03 Voice of Armand Pastore/Former hotel manager:
“'Wait a minute', I said, ’it is possible that there is somebody in there'. Then they became alert and they pulled their guns out and said: ’You open the door and we'll go in.' I opened the door with my key and they rushed in. Here this guy was sitting in the commode with the hands on his knees, his hands up to his head. The cops said ’what happened' he said: ’I don't know, I just heard a crash of glass and I then I see, that Frank Olson is out of the window. And he is down on the street.'”

18.50
The CIA shadow testifies that he was fast asleep and didn’t hear Olson get out of bed. He can offer no explanation for the suicide. He has nothing else to say. He makes no statement regarding the reason the two were visiting New York. The case is closed quickly. No one is interested in the telephone call that was made from Olson’s room immediately following his death.


19.15 Voice of Armand Pastore/Former hotel manager:
“The operator said, ’yes there was one call out of that room'. So I said ‘What was the conversation?' She said the man in the room called this number out in Long Island and said ‘Well, he's gone' and the man on the other end said ’Well, that's too bad' and they both hung up.”

19.39
Was that the CIA agent reporting that he had solved the “Frank Olson problem” in the Hotel Pennsylvania?


19.50
Eric Olson in New York. For years now, he has been searching for witnesses who might know something about his father’s death, which he considers to be a murder perpetrated by the CIA. He wants to know the motive. Was the government afraid Frank Olson might reveal state secrets? The recent terror attacks involving anthrax were a shock to Eric.


20.28
Eric finds himself wondering about a lot of things. Was the anthrax terrorist one of our own? Is that the reason he hasn’t been caught? Because he knows something no one else should find out about? A secret his father knew, too?


20.44
In a suburb of New York, Eric Olson meets long-time CIA veteran Ike Feldman. In the fifties, he worked in drug enforcement. At least, that was the official version. Although Feldman never met Eric’s father personally, he discovered some information about the circumstances of his death.


21.07 Voice of Ira (“Ike”) Feldman/Former CIA agent:
“The source that I have was the New York City Police Department, the Bureau of Narcotics Agents and the CIA Agents themselves. They all say the same thing: that he was pushed out of the window and that he did not jump.


People who wanted him out of the way said he talked too much and he was telling people about the things he had done which is American secret. If you work on a top government secret, a city secret, a state secret, and it spills out to people who should not know, there is only one way to do it: kill him.”

21.46
In April of 1950, Dr. Frank Olson received a diplomatic passport, unusual for an army scientist. Did he have a new job? In the following years, he traveled often to Europe, including making several trips to Germany.


22.00 Voice of Norman Cournoyer/Friend of Frank Olson:
“He was a member of the CIA. I only found this out after he told me about it. To me he was a Captain. That's all I knew about it at first. It turned out that he was a CIA agent. And stayed on, right on through to 1953.”


22.28
Pictures taken in Frankfurt and Heidelberg will later turn up among Olson’s slides. These cities were home to the US Army’s most important facilities in Germany. There is also a picture of the top secret CIA headquarters in Germany, located in the building of IG Farben in the heart of Frankfurt.

22.56
What is Olson’s new assignment? He is now working in an area that has nothing to do with biological weapons. Here, in the German offices of the CIA, the biochemist is conducting important conversations with US intelligence officers.


23.17
Increasingly, he can be found in the company of other CIA agents, including a certain John McNulty. It has to do with a top secret project to use chemicals, drugs and torture on human beings in order to break their will and make them submissive. Brainwashing.


23.35
The code name for this operation: Artichoke.


23.43
(Visual text!)
“The (...) team would enjoy the opportunity of applying
“Artichoke” techniques to individuals of dubious loyalty, suspected agents or plants and subjects having known reasons for deception.”

23.56
In Oberursel, in the Taunus hills north of Frankfurt, hidden in old half-timbered houses, the US Army led a quiet interrogation center: “Camp King”. It was primarily Soviet agents and defectors from East Germany who were kept here, people the CIA considered to be communist spies. Special teams, the so-called “rough boys”, interrogated the prisoners.


24.23
Former SS member Franz Gajdosch was hired just after the war by the Americans to tend the bar in the officers’ mess at Camp King. Sometime in the year of 1952, in the top secret interrogation center, Gajdosch runs across another German: Professor Kurt Blome.

24.42 Voice of Franz Gajdosch-dt./ Former barkeeper at “Camp King”:
“For a long time, Blome was a doctor at Camp King, he also ran the clinic. He was a protégé of the Americans, and had been a concentration camp doctor. He conducted experiments.”

25.03
The American officers who lived the good life at Camp King aren’t disturbed about Blome’s past. Was the former concentration camp doctor expected to lend his experience for their own planned experiments on human beings? A CIA consultant began planning the Artichoke experiments as early as September of 1951.

25.24
(Visual text!)
“The conversations at Oberursel pointed up (...) signs
and symptoms of drugs that might be used (...) We should look into the use of amnesia-producing drugs.”

25.34 Voice of Franz Gajdosch-dt./ Former barkeeper at "Camp King":
“Of course their methods were not humane, they exerted a lot of pressure. There are ways of breaking people. At Camp King, they were notorious, the “rough boys” – anything somebody didn’t want to reveal, they would try to get it out of them.”

26.01
There are many indications that the cruel experiments involving human beings – “Operation Artichoke” – took place in this isolated CIA safe house near Camp King, at the edge of a town called Kronberg.


26.17
The former “Schuster Villa”, now called “Haus Waldhof", was built shortly after the turn of the century as the summer residence of a Jewish banking family from Frankfurt. The Nazis confiscated it in 1934, and the Americans took it over after the war.

26.33 Voice of Franz Gajdosch-dt./Former bartender at “Camp King”:
“The neighbors, the community didn’t know who it was, what this place was, because the military personnel going in and out of the house weren’t in uniform, they wore civilian clothing. The vehicles had no license tags, so the community wasn’t even aware it was an American facility.”


26.58
At “House Waldhof,” in June 1952, the CIA begins conducting brain-washing experiments, using various drugs, hypnosis, and probably torture. One of the top secret protocols documents a Russian agent being pumped full of medication.


27.19
The goal of the experiments is to manipulate the human mind in order to extract secrets from its subjects. And then to erase their memory, so they can’t remember what happened to them.


27.38
Dr. Frank Olson arrived in Frankfurt on June 12, 1952, from Hendon Military Airport near London. He left the Rhine-Main region three days later, on June 15.


27.53
On June 13, experiments are conducted with “Patient No. 2”, a suspected Soviet double-agent.


28.03 Voice of Norm Cournoyer
“He was troubled after he came back from Germany one time. He came back and told me and he said Norm, I tell you right now you and I never talked about this, but we were both grown-ups and this was rough. He said ‘Norm, you would be stunned by the techniques that they used.’

They made people talk! They brainwashed people! They used all kinds of drugs, they used all kinds of torture.”

28.32
The CIA’s unscrupulous experiments on human beings continued the Nazi drug experiments they learned of during the liberation of the Dachau concentration camp.

28.43 Voice of Norman Cournoyer
“They were using Nazis, they were using prisoners, they were using Russians, and they didn't care whether they got out of that or not.”

29.17
Meanwhile, the US army was conducting extensive experiments with a new miracle drug: LSD. Here, for example, a soldier was expected to assemble a rifle while under the influence of the hallucinogen.


29.35
The army’s LSD experiments took place on the campus of the Chemical Corps in Edgewood Arsenal. The scientists who worked in these laboratories in the early fifties, and who collaborated closely with Frank Olson, were looking for new hallucinogenic substances. They hoped to find a way to use the drugs on the battle ground.

30.04
Dr. Fritz Hoffmann, a chemist from former Nazi Germany, had been hired a few years earlier to spur the search for new behavior-modifying substances. Immediately after the war he courted the Americans, seeking to ensure a job in the United States.


30:21 Voice of Bennie E. Hackley/Chemical Corps US Army:
“There was an interest in the U.S. during that time in looking at mood-altering drugs from LSD to BZ and other possible mood-altering drugs. Fritz was interested in that area as well.”

30.50
After its experiments on soldiers, the army saw potential in using LSD and other drugs to sedate and “dope” enemy troops. In short order, it would be possible to conquer territory without a fight.

31.15
A short time later, the CIA begins conducting its own LSD experiments in the bohemian New York neighborhood of Greenwich Village, on Bedford Street. But unlike the army experiments, the subjects of these tests, which took place in an apartment disguised as a brothel, would not be informed. The CIA hired prostitutes to pour LSD into their customers’ drinks. And then lure them into revealing secrets.

31.41 Voice of Ira (“Ike”) Feldman/Former CIA agent
“My purpose was to see that we got guys up there we wanted to talk and through other people we got prostitutes to talk to these guys and each prostitutes would put something - which I found out later was LSD - into their drink and made them talk. Either they wanted to talk about narcotics, security or crime. This was all part of the CIA experiments. They called it ‘dirty tricks'”.

32.08
LSD, it was soon learned, was a much more effective way to loosen the tongue than alcohol was.


32.24
Deep Creek Lake in western Maryland, a three-hour drive from Washington. In an isolated vacation house at the edge of the lake, the CIA’s “dirty tricks” department converged here for a meeting with ten of its scientists in November 1953.


32.43
The meeting is about Artichoke. According to the invitation, it was a conference for sports journalists. But in reality, the participants, one of them Frank Olson, were to be placed under the influence of LSD.


32.58
One of the drinks has been spiked. Later, it will be said the CIA was conducting a kind of self test – but without the knowledge of the participants.


33.07 Voice of Ira (“Ike”) Feldman/Former CIA agent:
“I do not think again from what I heard, that he was drugged because he was a security agent. He was drugged because he talked too much.”

33.19
When Frank Olson was later briefed about the LSD experiment, he knew immediately what it meant: They had interrogated him with Artichoke techniques.

33.30 Voice of Eric Olson:
“Friday evening he came home and spent the weekend in this house with my mother, my brother and sister and me and during much of the weekend they sat on the sofa which was just over here. It was a foggy November weekend, as she described it, and they sat here, holding hands and staring out of this big window into the fog, and he described having made something he referred to as a terrible mistake.”

34.01
The CIA brings Olson, accompanied by an agent, to New York. In the hotel they are joined by a doctor working for the secret service, who administers medication. Frank Olson has become a security risk. But it seems the CIA has already found a solution.


34.24
Forty years later, at the Institute for Forensic Sciences at George Washington University. The body of Dr. Frank Olson has been exhumed and is undergoing an autopsy. Eric wants clarity, once and for all. And as it turns out, the results of the first autopsy in 1953 in New York were manipulated.


34.52 Voice of Prof. James Starrs/George Washington University:
“The report from New York City, from the Medical Examiner's office which I had before me was totally inaccurate in some very important respects. It talks about lacerations, cuts of the flesh that in all probability might have been caused by glass in the course of his fall.

There were no lacerations. They were not there, totally non-existent.

We also noticed immediately that he had a hemorrhage, which we call a hematoma, which is under the skull by the frontal bone. That is only reasonably explainable as having occurred by reason of his being shall we say silenced, being rendered unable to defend himself, so that he could be tossed out of the window.”


35.54
Starrs arranges to visit the Pennsylvania Hotel with Armand Pastore, the hotel manager who found Frank Olson that night. Afterwards, he makes his judgment:

36.05 Voice of Prof. James Starrs/George Washington University:
“It is my view and a number of my team members, not all of them, that it was homicide.”


36.16
That would mean Frank Olson was first knocked out by a targeted blow and then thrown out of the open hotel window. Just a few months before the murder took place, the CIA had this “Study of Assassination” prepared, a how-to book for agents, on how to kill people without leaving any clues. In this report, it says:

36.37
(Visual text!)
“The most efficient accident, in simple assassination, is a fall of 75 feet or more onto a hard surface. (...) In some cases it will be necessary to stun or drug the subject before dropping him.”

36.49 Voice of Prof. James Starrs/George Washington University:
“What was spelled out in that ‘Assassination Manual’ was almost letter for letter what happened to Doctor Olson and it was a protocol, as we call it, for an assassination, which fit like the fingers in a glove.”

37.10
So was it in fact murder? But for what reason? Why did Olson speak of a “terrible mistake” he had made?

37.24 Voice of Norman Cournoyer/Friend of Frank Olson:
“There is a piece missing and I am not sure that I am the one to give it to you. What happened was, that he just got involved in it in a way he was unhappy about it. But there was nothing he could do about it. He was CIA and they took it to the end.”


37.49
Summer 1953. Frank Olson and his father-in-law cut down a tree. Then the family goes to Tupper Lake on vacation. Just like every year. With Arthur Vidich, his wife and their children. Everything seems the same as always. But that appearance is deceiving. Frank is troubled by something. And he makes an attempt to confide in his brother-in-law Art.


38:16 Voice of Arthur Vidich/Brother-in-law of Frank Olson:
“I had never had a conversation with him about anything that might have involved moral values. What had startled me about it was that he had mentioned the Bible and that he was struggling with something. I knew that there was a problem that he was attempting to confront. But what that problem was, I did not know. I can visualize his face actually: It was drawn, in a way I had never seen it before.”

38.58
While the family enjoys summertime at the lake, Frank retreats into his own world.


39:03 Voice of Eric Olson:
“My mother also recalled that my father was short-tempered during that last summer. She knew that he had been going through some kind of crisis. She knew he had not been sleeping well, she knew he wasn't really at peace. He had been agitated and worried about something and from time to time discussed leaving Detrick, leaving his job and retraining himself as a dentist. She had encouraged him to do this if that is what he wanted to do.”

39.37
In Asia, at that time, a bitter war was going on between allied US troops against the North Koreans and Chinese. It had already been going on for three years. It was the first, long-awaited and long-feared battle between the West and Communism. Could the Korean War have anything to do with Frank’s personal problems?


40.05
He still has an office here in Fort Detrick, in the US army’s center for biological weapons. At the same time, he is working for the CIA. Among the tasks of the dirty tricks department in Building 1412 are brainwashing, drugs and torture, as well as murder by means of poisons and bacteria.

40.27
On July 17, 1953, Olson celebrates his 43rd birthday with friends. A few days later, he leaves for the last trip he will ever take. He took his movie camera.


40.42
First stop: London. First objects filmed: Big Ben and a parade on the Mall.


40.52
Then on to Paris. Near the Eiffel Tower, his two CIA colleagues sit in a sidewalk café and watch pretty French girls go by, on the left is John McNulty.


41.07
“Paris, London, Stockholm”, Frank will later write on the packaging. His son Eric is seeing his father’s last film consciously for the first time.


41.18
Then, suddenly, a picture of the ruins of the Reichstag and Brandenburg Gate. The Soviet Memorial for the Victims of the Second World War. So Frank Olson was also in Berlin early in August 1953.

41.38
In Zehlendorf he photographs the headquarters of the American army.
Is Frank Olson on a secret Artichoke mission? Several top-level communist agents were being interrogated in Berlin at the time. It was a time of intense political and military tension in the divided city, just weeks after the civilian uprising in the Soviet sector. At the army headquarters in Berlin, Olson apparently witnessed brutal interrogation methods.


42.19 Voice of Norman Cournoyer/Friend of Frank Olson
“After he came back from Germany the last time he sounded different. When he talked to me he said, I can probably tell you things, that I can’t tell other people, because they are still in top secret material. The people he saw in Germany went to the extreme. He said: ‘Norm, did you ever see a man die?’

I said ‘No.’

He said, ‘Well, I did.’

Yes, they did die. Some of the people they interrogated died. So you can imagine the amount of work they did on these people.”


43.10 Voice of Norman Cournoyer/Friend of Frank Olson
“He said, that he was going to leave. He told me that. He said, ‘I am getting out of that CIA. Period’.”

43.19
In Korea, it’s just a matter of days before the first American prisoners of war will be released. Some of them will face charges of high treason, because they accused their own country of conducting biological warfare.

43.31 Voice of US Air Force Pilot (Prisoner of War in North Korea):
“If my son asked me what I did, what I did in Korea, how can I tell him that I came over here and dropped germ bombs on people destroying, and bringing death and destruction. How can I go back and face my family?”

43.48
Are their accusations accurate? Or are they themselves the victims of communist brainwashing? One thing is for certain: Back home, in freedom, the soldiers making these confessions will be interrogated again, using drugs and torture – by their own people!


(Visual text!)
“All hands agreed that (...) among the returning POWs
from Korea (...) the ‘hard core’ group and those who had been successfully indoctrinated were excellent subjects for Artichoke work.”

44.19
The American soldiers who claimed to have committed biological warfare were apparently manipulated using Artichoke techniques. This is documented in CIA papers. And indeed, all discredited their confessions.

44.30 Voice of US Air Force-Pilot (after his return):
“I did sign a confession, relating to germ warfare. The statements contained in this confession were false they were obtained under duress from Chinese communists. When making these statements I deliberately attempted to put in much as was false and ridiculous that I could possibly get away with.”

44.57 Voice of Norman Cournoyer/Friend of Frank Olson
“I took an oath when I left the Army that I would not talk about that. I am sorry.”


45.05
The Korean War Memorial in Washington honors the Americans who died in that fight. Of those who returned, some were interrogated by the CIA using cruel methods, and forced to rescind their confessions. But were the confessions the truth? Did the Americans in fact use biological weapons in the Korean War? As a test? And was this the secret Frank Olson knew, and might disclose?

45.34 Voice of Eric Olson
“This fits with what my mother had always said: Korea really bothered your father.

Finally when one my father's colleagues within the past year only told me that my father had come to understand that Korea was the key thing and that they were using biological warfare methods in Korea.

And then I preceded to ask him about the germ warfare confessions, this was alleged to be by the American government, these confessions made by the American servicemen were immediately discredited by the U.S. government under the idea that these were manipulated and produced only by the effect of brainwashing.


And at that point my father's colleague looked at me as if to say ‘read-my-lips’: ‘it wasn't all brainwashing’.”


46.24
Would this colleague, Norman Cournoyer, repeat this statement in front of the camera? He has never made a public statement. Neither about Frank Olson, nor about biological warfare in the Korean War. Will he, now in his 80s, pay last respects to his old friend Frank Olson? And to Frank’s son Eric, who takes part in this conversation?

46.46 Voice of Norman Cournoyer/Friend of Frank Olson
“I took an oath when I left the United States Army that I would never divulge that stuff.”

“You divulged it to me.”

“You cannot prove it, can you?”

“I can assert it. You told me.”

“Hearsay!”

“So you don't want to say it?”

“No .... I don't want to say it. But, there were people who had biological weapons and they used them. I won't say anything more than that. They used them.”

47:24 Voice of Norman Cournoyer/Friend of Frank Olson:
“Was there a reason for your Dad being killed by the CIA? Probably so.”

47.44
Around Frederick, Maryland, where Frank Olson lived while working for both the US Army’s secret biological warfare program and the CIA, the FBI is still looking for the anthrax terrorist.

For months, the largest investigation in the history of American criminal justice has been underway. Should the perpetrator be accused and the case come to court, the government in Washington might be forced to reveal what Eric Olson believes is top secret information about illegal research on biological weapons, about the use of anthrax in the Korean War – and about his father’s murder.

48.30
Eric wants to tell his friend Bruce about the latest evidence. Bruce has been at his side throughout his years of research. Once, in the summer of 1975, the American government didn’t hesitate to see to it that the truth was not made known.


48.43
The conspiracy originated at the top, in the White House, initiated by Donald Rumsfeld and Richard Cheney. It had just been learned that the CIA allegedly drugged its employee Frank Olson with LSD before his supposed suicide.


Rumsfeld and Cheney, heads of the White House chiefs of staff, at the time recommended to President Gerald Ford that he apologize to the family in the name of the government, and to support retribution. In order to prevent worse things from happening. That’s the content of this White House memo:

49.21
“There (is...) the possibility that it might be necessary to disclose highly classified national security information in connection with any court suit or legislative hearings.”

49.38
Ten days later, Ford hosted the Olson family and apologized. This allowed him to remain silent about state secrets – and the true reasons for Frank Olson’s death.

49.52 Voice of Eric Olson
“What this means for me is that a national security homicide is not only a possibility, but really it is a necessity, when you have a certain number of ingredients together.

If you are doing top secret work that is immoral, arguably immoral, especially in the post-Nuremberg period, and arguably illegal, and at odds with the kind of high moral position you are trying to maintain in the world, then you have to have a mechanism of security which is going to include murder.”

50.26
The two politicians who collaborated in the conspiracy in 1975, Rumsfeld and Cheney, are back in power. As vice president and secretary of defense of the government of the United States. The Frank Olson case, it seems, is far from being closed, even 50 years later. That, at least, is one thing of which Olson’s son is now certain.

High Court has Ruled: Bush is a War Criminal

You might have missed this point in the mainstream media coverage...

By Dave Lindorff

The media has missed this point, and the Justices kind of glided over the significance of what they were saying. So now the question is: What are we the people going to do about it?
Largely missed in all the coverage of the Supreme Court's landmark ruling in the Hamdan v. Rumsfeld case was the establishment by the court majority that all Bush administration claims to the contrary, the Geneva Convention rules regarding captured prisoners apply to the captives taken not only in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but in the so-called War on Terror.


What has been largely missed is the clear point that the Supreme Court has thus now declared that for the past five years, Bush and his gang of war-mongers, including Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, Secretary of State and former National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, former Attorney General Donald Rumsfeld and current Attorney General and former White House Chief Counsel Alberto Gonzales, and many others in the administration, have been guilty of violating the Third Convention on treatment of prisoners of war. They are also, therefore, in violation of federal law, which back in 1996 adopted that convention as part of the U.S. criminal code.


In other words, the whole top administration, from Commander in Chief George W. Bush on down, is guilty of war crimes. The punishment for committing war crimes ranges from a lengthy jail sentence to, in the event the crimes in question caused the death of any prisoners being held, to death. And there have been many deaths among those who have been held and tortured on orders of the administration--most recently the three suicides at Guantanamo, which included on man who had only three days earlier been targeted for release (but who never learned this because government's secrecy and tight security prevented his attorneys at the Center for Constitutional Rights from getting the news to him).


IN OTHER WORDS IF AMERICANS DON'T IMPEACH THIS NAZI GANG, WE ARE ENDANGERING OUR COUNTRY TO BE INVADED BY UN TROOPS ALREADY HERE, WHICH HAVE ALREADY BOUGHT SHACKLED BOXCARS!

The Regional BLUE List stated that the names on the BLUE List would be picked up 'within six weeks of the actual martial law declaration.' This parallels the Nazi RED/BLUE List policy almost to the letter. The parallel Nazi plan was published by Heinz Hohne in his 1966 book, The Story of the Nazi SS: The Order of the Death's Head.

[WHY BUSH FAMILY SENT THE U.S. RESERVES TO DIE IN IRAQ] "Who will be doing the actual picking up? Foreign 'cops' (United Nations Internal Security Forces). Over 30 foreign military bases under the United Nations flag are already set up in the US., all with the approval of special appointees in high Federal positions. These bases are already manned with over ONE MILLION troops from Russia, Poland, Germany, Belgium, Turkey, Great Britain, Nicaragua, and Asian countries. Why are they here? Because unlike our own troops--many of which along with the Guard and Reserve of 24 states are being deployed overseas--will have no qualms about firing on U.S. citizens when the time comes. There are more than 2,000 Russian tanks, military trucks and chemical warfare vehicles just outside Gulfport, Mississippi. They began arriving in January of 1994. There are 180 foreign troops at Fort Reilly which was confirmed to me by a Brigadier General. There are 300 who came into the Birmingham, Alabama airport on a big white Russian cargo plane on December 13, 1995."

July 4, 2006 -- Even Bush's crap is classified top secret. According to our Austrian sources, Austrian newspapers are currently abuzz with special security details of George W. Bush's recent trip to Vienna. Although the heavy-handed Gestapo-like security measures meted out to Viennese home owners, business proprietors, and pedestrians by US Secret Service agents and local police before and during Bush's visit received widespread Austrian media attention, it was White House "toilet security" ("TOILSEC"), which has Austrians talking the most. The White House flew in a special portable toilet to Vienna for Bush's personal use during his visit. The Bush White House is so concerned about Bush's security, the veil of secrecy extends over the president's bodily excretions. The special port-a-john captured Bush's feces and urine and flew the waste material back to the United States in the event some enterprising foreign intelligence agency conducted a sewage pipe operation designed to trap and examine Bush's waste material. One can only wonder why the White House is taking such extraordinary security measures for the presidential poop.

In the past, similar operations were conducted against foreign leaders to determine their medical condition. However, these intelligence operations were directed against dictators in countries where even the medical conditions of the top political leaders were considered "state secrets." The Israeli Mossad conducted one such operation against Syrian President Hafez Assad when he visited Amman, Jordan in Feb. 1999 for the funeral of King Hussein. The Mossad and its Jordanian counterpart installed a special toilet in Assad's hotel room that led not to a pipe but to a specimen canister. Assad suffered from diabetes and cancer and the operation was designed to discover the actual medical condition of the ailing leader. During Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev's visit to Washington in 1987, the CIA reportedly placed a special trap under a sewage tank to collect the Soviet leader's bodily waste for analysis. More recently, the CIA was reported to have collected waste samples from Ugandan President-dictator Yoweri Museveni's toilet when he visited Washington.

Even Bush's toilet paper was flown in from the U.S. Air Base at Ramstein, Germany. In addition, Bush's food was flown in from the United States and tested with special chemicals before he ate it. Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu, who was shot by a firing squad in 1989, was the last major European leader to constantly use a food tester. The last frequent state visitor to Vienna, who always relied on a food tester, was Adolf Hitler.



All of Austria is talking about Bush's "souvenirs" sent back to Washington from Vienna.

Tapes reveal Enron's secret role in California's power blackouts

Julian Borger in Washington
Saturday February 5, 2005
The Guardian


Newly discovered tapes have revealed how the energy corporation Enron shut down at least one power plant on false pretences, deliberately aggravating California's crippling 2001 blackouts with the aim of raising prices.
The tapes also show that Enron, whose bankruptcy three years ago was the biggest corporate scandal of recent times, manipulated energy markets in Canada and was planning to rig the Californian market even before deregulation in 1998, for which the Texan corporation actively campaigned.


Article continues

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

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

The most damning revelations concern Enron's secret role in creating artificial power shortages in California, helping to trigger an energy crisis in 2000 and 2001 which cost residents billions of dollars in surcharges.
The crisis ultimately led to the ousting of the state's Democratic governor, Gray Davis, and paved the way for rise of Arnold Schwarzenegger in his place. Meanwhile, the shortages helped Enron to make $1.6bn (£850m).

This week, the federal energy regulatory commission recommended that the company return almost $1.7bn acquired from shady energy deals dating back to 1997.

Enron's former chief executive, Kenneth Lay, an enthusiastic financial backer and friend of President Bush (to whom he was "Kenny Boy"), has been charged with fraud and is facing trial, along with two other company officials, in Houston in September.

Those charges mainly involve allegedly cooking Enron's books to make the energy brokerage appear more profitable and boost its stock price. The new evidence suggests the company may also have promoted deregulation so enthusiastically because it knew it could fix the system to its own advantage.

"Enron, more than any company in California came in with consultants and presentations to all the legislators and policymakers to explain how deregulation would work, to explain how Enron was just trying to help," Eric Saltmarsh, executive director of California's Electricity Oversight Board, told the Guardian. "It later turned out to be part of their scheme. From the earliest days of deregulation, Enron was arguing for market structures that from the beginning it took advantage of."

The tapes came to light when a local authority in Washington state went to court over Enron's bills and was permitted to seize internal records from a company warehouse.

On one tape, an Enron official named Bill tells an employee called Rich at a Las Vegas power plant to take the plant offline on a confected excuse. The conversation took place on January 17 2001, in the last days of the Clinton administration, as blackouts were rolling across California, cutting off electricity to more than one million people, and after the energy secretary, Bill Richardson, had ordered generators across the west to direct their output to the troubled state.

"Ah, we want you guys to get a little creative, and come up with a reason to go down," Bill says on the tape. "Anything you want to do over there? Any cleaning, anything like that?"

"OK, so we're just comin' down for some maintenance, like a forced outage type thing?" Rich replies, according to transcripts published yesterday. "I think that's a good plan, Rich," Bill says. "... I knew I could count on you."

A spokeswoman for Enron, which is still going through bankruptcy proceedings, refused to comment.

-- SPECIAL REPORT. Those who claim the Bush administration is a Nazi regime are not far from the truth.
08 Jul 2006
http://www.waynemadsenreport.com/

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


July 7/8, 2006 -- SPECIAL REPORT. Those who claim the Bush administration is a Nazi regime are not far from the truth. This story is a special investigation of Bush family slush funds, smuggling, and secret money conduits from and to various right-wing causes, including some that are extremely violent. The New York Times is running a story today about the U.S. military recruiting Aryan Nation, neo-Nazi, and other white supremacists into its ranks. The Times' report states that Neo-Nazi graffiti has sprung up in Baghdad, in quoting from a report by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The involvement of white supremacy and neo-Nazi groups with the Pentagon began in earnest during the administrations of Reagan and Bush I. According to informed sources who have tracked the neo-Nazis since the Reagan era, the surge in extreme right-wing elements in the Federal government was spurred on by the network of Nicaraguan Contra support activities created to facilitate going around the prohibitions enacted by the Congress. A key member of that strategy was Cheney's Chief of Staff David Addington, who was with the CIA, the Iran-Contra Committee in Congress, and then signed on as senior Vice President for the American Trucking Associations (ATA). WMR reported yesterday on the involvement of a foundation set up by McLean Trucking Co., a member of the ATA, with covert Contra support.

The ATA is a hotbed of GOP activity as well past connections with support for covert CIA activities. Its chief lobbyist is Jim ("Whit") Whittinghill, a former aide to Sen. Bob Dole. Whittinghill's wife, Nancy Dorn, served as an assistant to Texas Representative Tom Loeffler and later served as Special Assistant for Legislative Affairs to Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush. Dorn also served as 1989-93), Nancy Dorn worked for Defense Secretary Dick Cheney as Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works and Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Inter-American Affairs. While working for Cheney, Dorn became a close associate of Addington. Dorn was also Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Legislative Affairs. In 2001, Dorn returned to government after acting as a lobbyist for Pakistan, Azerbaijan, and China. She became special assistant for legislative affairs to Vice President Cheney. In 2002, Dorn became the Deputy Director for the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), where she served until 2003 before becoming Vice President for Government Relations of General Electric, the parent company of NBC and NBC News. (This puts into context the partisan pro-Bush editorial slants of the network's news division, particularly Nora O'Donnell, Campbell Brown, Brian Williams, Tim Russert, and Chris Matthews).

In the late 1980s and early 90s, Dorn was associated with the network of right-wing neo-confederates who were gaining tremendous influence in the Republican Party. While the Army's chief of civil works, Dorn had control over Arlington National Cemetery and issued guidance on how the Confederate Memorial Committee of the District of Columbia could hold its annual ceremony at the cemetery's Confederate War Memorial and pay for it with funds provided by the United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC). According to John Edward Hurley, a one-time associate of White House correspondent Sarah McClendon and the head of the non-partisan Confederate Memorial Association (CMA), South Carolina GOP operative and Confederate Memorial Committee chairman Richard T. Hines, now a major lobbyist (RTH Consulting) in Washington, DC (whose clients include Gambia, Saudi Arabia, Cambodia, and Nigeria), arranged with the UDC to have funds transferred for the Confederate monument and ceremony from sources in the South associated with far right-wing elements. Hines, who was close to South Carolina Senator Strom Thurmond, saw to it money was transferred from Metrolina Bank in Charlotte, North Carolina (connected to North Carolina Senator Jesse Helms), to First American Bank in Virginia (then owned by the CIA-connected Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI)), to the Mid-Atlantic Credit Union in Gaithersburg, Maryland. One of the officials involved in this money movement was the chief accountant for Edison Electric Institute, which was working closely with Enron and, along with Enron, was one of the largest contributors to the Bush and GOP campaign coffers.

The impetus for the Confederate revival at Arlington Cemetery was promoted by the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) Jefferson Davis Camp Number 305. Its members included a number of individuals associated with white supremacist and neo-Nazi organizations. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which was the source of the New York Times article on Aryan Nation and neo-Nazi penetration of the U.S. military, the SCV has come under the control of racists and Ku Klux Klansmen. Denne Sweeney, on the urging of SCV Camp 305 member Kirk Lyons, an attorney for the Klan, took over as SCV commander in 2004. According to the CMA's Hurley, Lyons, who ran the Houston-based Southern Legal Resource Center (SLRC) (a right-wing rival of the SPLC), was significantly funded by Hines. Lyons later moved the SLRC to Black Mountain in western North Carolina. According to Hurley and the SPLC, the SCV and SLRC are part of a vast network of far right organizations, including the Council of Conservative Citizens (a successor to the Klan-linked White Citizens Councils), the secessionist Southern Partisan magazine (for which Hines arranged an interview with then Missouri Senator John Ashcroft), the secessionist League of the South, the Aryan Nations, the National Association for the Advancement of White People, and the National Socialist White Americans' Party).

With the recent news about neo-Nazi and Klan penetration of the U.S. military, it is noteworthy that Hines' wife, Patricia Mayes Hines, was the U.S. Army's Deputy Assistant Secretary for Manpower and Reserve Affairs during the George H. W. Bush administration. Mrs. Hines served under Cheney along with Dorn, who was permitting neo-Confederate penetration of Arlington Cemetery, and David Addington, who was continuing to help cover up the elder Bush's role in Iran-Contra as Cheney's General Counsel, and Lewis I. "Scooter" Libby, who was Principal Deputy Under Secretary for Strategy and Resources and Deputy Undersecretary for Policy, and was also involved in senior Bush's covert operations abroad. Hines, who was an associate of the late Lee Atwater, Karl Rove's dirty tricks doppelganger, practiced his dirty tricks trade for George W. Bush in his home state against John McCain in the vicious 2000 GOP primary.

It is noteworthy that on the day he was arrested, Murrah Federal building bomber Timothy McVeigh was wearing a Southern Partisan magazine T-shirt bearing the Latin phrase, Sic Semper Tyrannis, along with a portrait of Abraham Lincoln. The phrase was shouted by John Wilkes Booth after he shot to death President Lincoln at Ford's Theater. Another violent connection to the neo-confederates is the FBI's VANPAC (Vance Political Assassination Conspiracy) case that involved white supremacist mail bombings directed against Federal judges. According to the Department of Justice, "four mail bombs [were] sent in December 1989 to different locations in the southeastern United States. One killed federal judge Robert Vance [11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals] in Alabama, a second killed a civil rights attorney [Robert Robinson] in Georgia, and two others [one at the U.S. Courthouse in Atlanta and the other at the NAACP headquarters in Jacksonville, Florida] were discovered before they exploded. A massive investigation ensued involving the FBI and several other law enforcement agencies. The FBI referred to the case as VANPAC because it involved the assassination of Judge Vance [at his home] with a bomb sent in a mail package. In June 1991, a federal jury convicted Walter LeRoy Moody, Jr. [a former Klansman] on charges related to the bombings." Louis Freeh, Jr. was appointed the Special Prosecutor in the VANPAC case. After moving the case from Birmingham, Alabama to St. Paul, Minnesota, and after introducing tainted evidence, Freeh won a successful conviction of Moody, who was sentenced to seven life sentences. An Alabama court sentenced Moody to death. In appreciation for his work, Freeh was nominated as U.S. District Court judge for the southern district of New York. In 1993, President Clinton named Freeh to be FBI Director, where he served during the McVeigh case and the Whitewater and Monica Lewinsky investigations of Clinton. Vance was a progressive Democrat in Alabama, having served as Democratic Party chairman for the state for 11 years. At the time of his death, several Alabama political figures cited "drugs" and "Colombian cartels" as the reason for the mail bombings directed at Federal judges. Vance, a Jimmy Carter appointee, had incurred the wrath of the neo-confederates who viewed him as too liberal and called him the "Daniel Ortega of Alabama." Because of the mail bombings directed against the Federal judiciary (Moody threatened to kill 17 judges), there were a number of judicial resignations around the United States, which allowed George H. W. Bush to replace them with his own people.



"Southern Partisan" T-shirt worn by right-wing terrorist bomber Timothy McVeigh. George W. Bush has appointed many neo-confederates to top jobs in his administration.

The threat against judges resumed under Bush's son, George W. Bush. In 2005, after being threatened with death by white supremacist and World Church of the Creator (now "Creativity Movement") head Matthew Hale, U.S. District Judge Joan Humphrey Lefkow, discovered the bodies of her 64-year old husband and 89-year old mother at her home. They had been brutally murdered. In a bizarre development, a Chicago man named Bart Ross shot himself in a Milwaukee suburb after being pulled over by police for a traffic violation. Police said they found a suicide note in which Ross claimed responsibility for the murders of Judge Lefkow's husband and mother. However, Ross had no known connections to any white supremacist organizations. Hale had been convicted for threatening Judge Lefkow's life and obstruction of justice. Threatening judges was not confined to people like Hale. Then-House Majority Leader Tom DeLay threatened judges when he stated, "the time will come for the men responsible for the death of Terri Schiavo to answer for their behavior." Senator Frank Lautenberg wrote to DeLay, stating he was "stunned to read the threatening comments . . . directed at federal judges and our nation's courts of law in general."



Matthew Hale: Foot soldier for the GOP in threatening the lives of Federal judges.

The involvement of neo-Nazis and white supremacists with U.S. Special Forces, reported by the SPLC and New York Times, also bears on the neo-confederate penetration of the Bush administration. Ashbury International Group, of Sterling, Virginia, a private military contractor (PMC) offering the services of its ex-Special Forces personnel to the government, lost a lawsuit brought against its plans to build a shooting range in Nelson County, Virginia on the plantation of Confederate Congressman William Portcher Mills, the man who designed the Confederate flag. Appearing as a witness for Ashbury was Michael Garcia, a former Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security for Immigration and Customs Enforcement and now the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, along with attorneys for the National Rifle Association. Another Special Forces link to the neo-confederates is retired Army Lt. Col. Jeffrey Addicott, a former counsel for the US Special Forces assigned to the Pentagon and, who, according to the CMA's Hurley, was a close associate of top officials in the neo-confederate movement. Addicott is currently the Director of the Center for Terrorism Law at St. Mary's College of Law in San Antonio, Texas and he chaired a panel at the National Defense Industrial Association's 2006 Special Operations/Low Intensity Conflict (SO/LIC) conference, an event attended by every major PMC, including those making huge profits in Iraq. Hurley released the following statement on August 31, 2005, that implicates a number of Bush I and II officials in the neo-confederate movement and the Iran-Contra affair, including Chief Justice John Roberts:

A Washington association executive has called for an investigation into the role of Supreme Court nominee John Roberts when he represented the National Credit Union Administration, a regulatory agency of the federal government. He charged that there was a bizarre intervention by the NCUA to quash a subpoena for a personal account while Roberts was representing the group.
Hurley, president of the Confederate Memorial Association which owned and operated the only Confederate museum in the nation's capital, said that ongoing litigation against his association had been traced to Contra supporters and present and former employees in the general counsels office of the National Credit Union Administration. Moreover, Hurley said that evidence indicated that a $500,000 political slush fund was being covered up.

Hurley said a court order approving a $15,000 fraudulent legal bill, after being issued nearly two years ago, was mysteriously submitted to the bank last week. A two-year lapse in collecting court ordered fees is unheard of, and Hurley contends that this shows that the White House is concerned about illegal NCUA activities being exposed while Roberts represented the group.

A "Freedom Fighter" fundraiser was scheduled after Roberts had made several recommendations on the subject while he was in the White House Counsels' office. Moreover, Carl "Spitz" Channell and Richard Miller, who were raising private funds for the Contras, had met in the White House to ask support for the Contras (as the Walsh Iran/Contra Report noted). After the Roberts memos counseled that Contra fundraising should be held outside the White House, a "Freedom Fighter Night" was scheduled on July 12, 1986 to be held in October of 1986 at Confederate Memorial Hall. Hurley said that he cancelled the October event. However, prior to this, a previous reception at the Hall had been attended by White House personnel. Hurley added that the invitation to the October event was sent from the Capital Yacht Club.

Roberts represented the National Credit Union Administration when he was with Hogan and Hartson. In 1997, Roberts argued the NCUA case before the Supreme Court, which dealt with expanding the banking market for credit unions. In that case, Robert M. Fenner was listed as counsel for the NCUA with Roberts.

Hurley said that Fenner had employed David Eno as the head of his fraud hotline operation at NCUA. According to Hurley, Eno was a commander of the Jefferson Davis Camp No. 305 of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, an organization that sued the Confederate Memorial Association. Kirk Lyons, an attorney who has represented the KKK and the Aryan Nation, is an officer in the Sons of Confederate Veterans. Eno and Richard Hines, another commander of the Jefferson Davis Camp and the husband of White House Domestic Policy advisor Patricia Hines, were behind the litigation against the Confederate Memorial Association.

Hurley said that the mysterious political funding that was used in the litigation against his organization was also used for the annual Confederate ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery. He charged that the funds were part of a secret political slush fund that was wired overnight through a bank in Charlotte by Department of Energy attorney Stephen Page Smith. The funds were traced to the Mid-Atlantic Federal Credit Union in Gaithersburg, Maryland which was regulated by Roberts' client, the NCUA. .

A subpoena for this account was quashed by D.C. Superior Court Judge John H. Bayly. The motion to quash was submitted to Judge Bayly by attorney Stephen Bisker, a former employee of NCUA's Robert Fenner and current contractor for the NCUA who works for a major credit union auditing firm. .

Hurley also believes that another $500,000 of illegal political donations from the American Defense Institute may now be in the account, noting that attorney Thomas L. O'Neill was on the ADI board and was another attorney litigating against Mr. Hurley's association.

Alan Rothenberg, yet another attorney litigating against the Confederate Memorial Association, is the treasurer of the U.S. Premier Federal Credit Union. The president of the USPFCU was Randolph Earnest, assistant to Ambassador David A. Gross, U.S. Coordinator for International Communications and Information Policy at the State Department and the former executive director of Lawyers for Bush-Cheney, a group that worked with Roberts during the 2000 election.

Roberts also represented the National Mining Association. Hurley say that Herbert Harmon, the chief lawyer in the massive litigation against the Confederate Memorial Association, uses his home as a contact address for the Rio Tinto mining operation, the largest in the world.

The high-profile Confederate ceremonies in Arlington National Cemetery are held in June and are attended by such notables as Richard B. Abell, a former Department of Justice Assistant Secretary in charge of the Office of Justice Programs and current magistrate for the U.S. Court of Claims; Nicholas D. Ward, who serves on the Probate and Fiduciary Rules Advisory Committee of the D.C. Superior Court; and Robert Wilkie, who currently serves on the National Security Council staff at the White House.

Another prominent lawyer supporting the legal action against Hurley is Col. Jeffrey Addicott, former senior legal counsel for the Special Forces and current director of the Center for Terrorism Law.

When Judge Bayly jailed Hurley in 1997 for objecting to the quashing of the subpoena for the Mid-Atlantic account which Hurley believes to be at the behest of the NCUA, Hurley sold the century-old D.C. museum. The strange motion to quash "by someone other than the holder of the account shows a massive fraud and an obstruction of justice in his case," Hurley said.

Hurley cited a Maryland trial that continues this week as an example of the perilous consequences of dealing with white supremacists. The trial involves the largest arson in the history of the state. All of the burned homes in Charles County belonged to blacks. The chief witness against the Confederate Memorial Association was Lewis Doherty, who is now listed as an organizer of the neo-Nazi National Alliance that was distributing white supremacist literature in Charles County prior to the arsons.

Hurley is calling for a complete investigation of John Roberts connection with the planned "Freedom Fighter" reception, the National Credit Union Administration, the National Mining Association and the Rio Tinto mining operation. He said that all the facts about Roberts in these matters should be known before there is "a secular canonization of this man for the highest court."
Operation Condor

OPERATION CONDOR, 9/11-1973/2001
author: ALEX CONSANTINE
Operation Condor, the CIA-instigated overthrow of Allende in 1973, was overseen by some of the same political forces currently in control of the White House, including Cheney and Rumsefeld. Special renditions, abductions and torture, familiar themes in the headlines these days, were essential components of Condor and its domestic incarnation, Bush's "war on terror," a camouflage for suppressing dissent and the imposition of open fascist rule.
"The 9/11 attack was the parallel to the Pinochet coup
... Operation Condor ... Pinochet also imposed
extraordinary police powers ... After 9/11, thousands
of Arabs and Muslims were also rounded up by the US
military and kept in prison in secret ... They were
also tortured ... 9/11 was the equivalent of a coup
for Bush. Its version of Operation Condor is being
assembled in the Pentagon by Undersecretary of Defense
Stephen Cambone and his military deputy, Lt. Gen.
William G. Boykin ..." - Maria Montelibre

"'Counterterrorism' plus George Schultz's doctrine of
'preemptive counterinsurgency' equals revolutionary
fascist insurgency..." - Lyle Courtsal

"In this world, in this strange world of covert
overthrow of governments and clandestine armies and
secret operations, the problem we're facing is that
you are working with two realities: you're working
with ... exchange of power, economic power, power over
people, controlling their lives. In order to do that
you disguise certain persons and send them into roles
to influence. They become actors on a stage and they
influence our minds in a way that is not real, but
effect a reality that will touch us later." - Mae
Brussell, Dialogue Assassination, Broadcast no. 16,
October 13, 1971
---
To Mussolini, "fascismo," a word he coined, had dual
meanings. It is rooted in the Latin "fasces," a rather
strange-looking axe with poles strapped to it, but the
term also meant "Group."

Christopher Deliso at Antiwar.com found the 9/11 group
when he poked into the Plame investigation, "a relay
team of hawkish officials providentially placed
throughout various government agencies." The
serpentine network wound through the CIA, Pentagon,
Office of Special Plans, State Department, DIA, NSA
and other federal agencies. Deliso described
operatives darkening the wings of the Libby
investigation, but the same could be said of the 9/11
inquiry: the same "relay team" performed "a handoff of
information from the point of origin (the CIA) to the
ultimate 'commissioners' of the inquiry." Given the
"intra- and inter-factional nature of all of these
agencies, it is understandable why the highest
officials in the land jostled to get their 'people'
strategically inserted throughout the departments,
where they could garner inside information and hinder
the objectives of their ostensibly direct employers
whenever they conflicted with the goals of their real
minders..."1

These would be the Royals - the Morgans, Harrimans,
Rockefellers, and so on. The Royals set loose their hounds
for the installation of a dictatorship in Chilé in 1973:
Kissinger, Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, the CIA and a
military junta ...
---
CIA acknowledges involvement in Allende's overthrow,
Pinochet's rise
September 19, 2000?
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The CIA is acknowledging for the
first time the extent of its deep involvement in
Chile, where it dealt with coup-plotters, false
propagandists and assassins ...
---
Twenty-five years before the CIA posted a public
confession, Howard Zinn went ahead anyways and
reported that Operation Condor, "the CIA action to
overthrow Allende, was approved by the 40 Committee,
whose chairman [was] Henry Kissinger. And it was
Kissinger who recommended that Rockefeller head the
commission to investigate the CIA.

Rockefeller summed up the commission report: 'There
are things that have been done which are in
contradiction to the statutes, but in comparison to
the total effort, they are not major.' The same report
can be made on the Corleone family ..."2

How "in contradiction to the statutes" was Condor? So
in contradiction that the river running through
Santiago was dammed by headless bodies. How many
statutes did that contradict?

Regime change has long been a staple of US foreign
policy. Exactly 28 years later, it happened again. But
the strategy had evolved with the times. The idea was
not to merely impose military rule on a defenseless
population, but to rechannel resources of government -
its finances, military force, technology, personnel
and secrets - their way.

The early "jostling" to insert the 9/11 relay team
behind Bush resulted in the appointment of Donald H.
Rumsfeld as Secretary of Defense. Rumsfeld was among
the the central genocidists engaged in Operation
Condor I.

"Latin America: Murder, Inc.," a classified report
prepared by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee
Subcommittee on International Operations, revealed the
origins of Condor. The title reiterated a confession
by Lyndon Johnson a few months before his death: "We
were running a Murder, Inc. in the Caribbean." The
Senate report explained that the U.S. had "joint
operations between Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile,
Paraguay and Uruguay. The joint operations were known
as Operation Condor. These are special teams used to
carry out [the] killing of enemies." Jack Anderson
offered a glimpse of "Operation Condor, An Unholy
Alliance" on August 3, 1979: "Assassination teams are
centered in Chile. This international consortium is
located in Colonia Dignidad, Chile. Founded by the SS,
led by Franz Pfeiffer Richter, Adolf Hitler's
1000-year Reich may not have perished. Children are
cut up in front of their parents, suspects are
asphyxiated in piles of excrement or rotated to death
over barbecue pits." Colonel Otto Skorzeny, a postwar
CIA recruit, code-named the Battle of the Bulge
Operation Greif - "Condor."3

Another CIA recruit oversaw the Chilean incarnation of
Condor.

Global Research reports: "Henry Kissinger belongs in
the dock alongside the Chilean dictator.... He remains
a prominent figure in the affairs of the US ruling
establishment and is protected by the government. In
2002, the Bush administration attempted unsuccessfully
to name this war criminal as the head of the
'independent' panel investigating the September 11,
2001, terrorist attacks on New York and Washington.

"George Bush senior should be the subject of an
indictment for the role the CIA played under his
direction in fostering and covering up for the
assassination squads that roamed Latin America and,
ultimately, the streets of Washington.

"The most prominent figures in the Bush administration
- Vice President Dick Cheney and Defense Secretary
Donald Rumsfeld - are likewise implicated. Cheney was
the White House chief of staff during the Condor
Operation, while Rumsfeld was defense secretary,
supervising US ties to the Latin American military."4

Rumsfeld crony George Schultz established business
ties with the Pinochet regime, and learned a thing or
two about fascist economics for grafting to domestic
policies. Independent Latin journalist Maria
Montelibre writes, "General Pinochet's Labor Minister
and Mining Minister in those days, José Piñera, is a
Harvard educated boy, friend of George Schultz, among
others. Piñera is now head of the Cato Institute
Privatization Project in the U.S., which supports and
instigates Bush's privatization schemes. Piñera
planned the Social Security privatization plan in
Chile with Dictator Pinochet."5

The Condor is Rumsfeld's again, and it was spotted by
a reporter for Ireland's Village magazine in 2004:
"Extraordinary Rendition bears more than a passing
resemblance to operation Condor, the 'multinational of
terror' organised by six US-backed Latin American
dictatorships in the 1970s." The Latin American terror
program crossed national borders. "Regimes swapped
suspects and facilitated death squads and kidnap
teams. Suspects were disappeared without a trace, held
without due process and monitored by physicians during
torture sessions." The post-9/11, Condor-like
rendition program was "first mooted inside the offices
of US intelligence," at the behest of Donald
Rumsfeld.6

Others noticed haunting similarities between Condor
and Rumsfeld's "war on terror." An editorial appeared
in The Nation in January 2005: "Did anyone in the Bush
White House cast an uneasy eye over the new indictment
of Gen. Augusto Pinochet? It may seem over the top to
mention that old buzzard in the same breath as an
elected US President. But consider Task Force 6-26. It
sounds like a relic of Pinochet's Operation Condor....
Task Force 6-26 is a secret unit composed mostly of US
Navy SEALs operating in Baghdad - its existence
unacknowledged by the Pentagon. According to the
Washington Post, a fact-finding mission for Army
generals warned a year ago that Task Force 6-26 was
running an off-the-books prison for detainees."7

But Rumsfeld coordinated with others in Washington
operating on behalf of the "minders," as William Blum
notes: "1973, September 11, CHILE: President Allende
overthrown by General Pinochet in a bloody coup in
which 3000 Chileans are massacred. The Rockefellers'
ITT corp., now run by John McCloy, donates $1 million
to the coup effort, which is orchestrated by Henry
Kissinger."8

The planning was conceived in pitiless detail by
social engineers. In the 1960s, Abt Associates - a
consulting firm founded by Clark C. Abt, a German who
migrated to the U.S. in 1937, earned a degree at MIT
and joined Raytheon after the war - assisted the
Pentagon and CIA with Project Camelot, a computer
model for destabilizing foreign governments. Socialist
scholar Guerry Hoddersen writes that Abt Associates
"developed a simulation game called Politica that drew
information from a computer linking the files of the
CIA, the Defense Intelligence Agency and the State
Department. Politica was used in training Third World
police" and predicting "which social forces could be
mobilized against leftist governments."9

As early as 1965, the American Anthropological
Association's executive board began to receive
complaints concerning social engineering projects in
the Third World. The DoD and CIA recruited
anthropologists to assist in counterinsurgency
operations, and from this program rose Project Camelot
with its cynical code-name. The Army, according to the
AAA, "had a contract with American University to study
sociopolitical factors that could lead to internal
warfare in that country."10

A survey of Condor undertaken by an independent
Virtual Truth Commission ("Telling the Truth for a
Better America") exposed the "minders" of the coup:

".......1976-OPERATION CONDOR, SOUTH AMERICAN
ASSASSINATION CARTEL, THE YEAR GEORGE BUSH SR. IS CIA
DIRECTOR. In 1976, Nelson Rockefeller was Vice
President (to Ford), and his advisor Henry Kissinger
was Secretary of State. In this year Kissinger's
puppet dictator Pinochet, of Chile, organised
Operation CONDOR, to co-ordinate death squad
assassinations by the secret police of the dictators
of Chile, Brasil, Argentina, Uruguay, and Paraguay .
30,000 leftists were assassinated/ executed/
"disappeared."... Many of the top ranking Nazi war
criminals in South America are believed to have lived
in Colonia Dignidad. In 1993, a cache of documents
called the 'ARCHIVES OF TERROR' was found in Paraguay
detailing Nazi war criminal involvement in Operation
Condor, and listing victims, including Israeli agents
who were trying to find Nazis to bring to trial. It is
highly probable that George Bush and Henry Kissinger
knew about, and directed, Operation CONDOR. General
Pinochet was never ashamed of his pro-Nazi fetish,
preferring Nazi uniforms and marching music. In 1985
an American professor, Boris Weisfeiler, was
disappeared at Colonia Dignidad. Today Dignidad is a
prospering commune valued at $5 billion, but closed to
the public and protected by the Chilean military.
Today David Rockefeller is the scion of his families'
empire, running Chase-Manhattan Bank, the Trilateral
Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR),
and Rockefeller Center, NYC. Kissinger was Bush jr's
choice to head the September 11th investigation. Paul
Bremer III, former Director of Kissinger Associates,
was Bush's appointed ruler of Iraq."11

The Raytheon option contracts made money, if shares were more than $25 each. The price zoomed up nearly 37 percent to $34.04 during the first week after post 9/11 trading.

Parenthetically, Raytheon had also been hit with millions of dollars in fines for padding costs of equipment it sold to the US military. Raytheon also has a hush-hush subsidiary, E-Systems, whose clients include the CIA and NSA, the latter about to make a hostile takeover of the other.

CLEARLY, Bets were placed in advance of 9/11 with foreknowledge of 9/11. This isn't just War Profiteering, this is TERROR PROFITEERING.

Raytheon had a DIRECT role in 9/11.

http://www.rinf.com/columnists/news/raytheon-connection-to-9-11

Americans (too many) do not know that Raytheon executives were killed on 9-11, or at least wound up permanently missing, which may be a more accurate way of saying it. It is who wound up missing that is most interesting.

This is an excerpt of the email we received and is information that we knew as of the issuance of the flight manifests for all four of the planes allegedly involved in 9-11:

Subject: Raytheon and 9/11

These are not only the type of people but they are the people that would be assigned to UAV type projects involving Mode 4 and Mode 5 upgrades. Why would they be in Boston and those planes coming from that direction and from north of Manhattan Island?

That 16 foot tunnel through three rings of the Pentagon is only made by a directional blast weapon. Rumsfeld has even slipped up and mentioned the missile that hit the Pentagon.

Some have seen the Pentagon parking lot camera video and the white trail of smoke. Jets do now leave white trails of smoke at sea level, but Thiokol powered AGMs do, at all attitudes.

A Real 9-11 Commission should have certain Hughes and Raytheon parties summoned for questioning.

None of the right parties were being asked the right questions nor were any of the right issues addressed by the bogus 9-11 Commission that Bush appointed.

It would be a systematic, slow and painful process but in the end it would be beyond painful for certain parties. In the end, it would be a long overdue flushing of the toilet that is Washington, DC.

Bear in mind, these are the 9-11 Commission members that keep holding press conferences urging the President and Congress to implement their plan and findings, with all urgency.

Yes, they are urgent because the Truth is on their trail...

Barry McCaffrey – Paid CIA Propaganda Asset

The Purchase Of The Mainstream Media By The US Government

http://www.independent.org/newsroom/article.asp?id=324

Barry McCaffrey Should Resign January 20, 2000 Alexander Tabarrok Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

The office of drug czar Barry McCaffrey secretly paid the television networks to propagandize its anti-drug message. According to a special report from Salon magazine, the scripts of popular television shows like "ER," "Chicago Hope," "Beverly Hills 90210" and many others were doctored to fit the requirements of McCaffrey's White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP). In return for altering scripts, the networks were allowed to sell advertising time that had been promised to the government to other more high paying advertisers.

A free and democratic society cannot long tolerate extensive government manipulation of the media. What is next? Will the Department of Defense pay the networks to drum up support for more bombers? Will the CIA pay filmmakers to alter the scripts of their movies? The payments from the office of the drug czar to the networks make one wonder whether this is not already occurring. If McCaffrey can pay for television shows supporting the goals of his office, what is to stop another agency from paying for shows supporting--or not supporting as the politics of the day change--affirmative action, sexual harassment laws, gays in the military, or any of a host of other controversial issues?

Government tampering with the media is not new. FBI director J. Edgar Hoover planted editorials in major newspapers, had reporters and writers tailed, and collected incriminating sexual information against publishers in order to blackmail them. McCaffrey has been far more circumspect. Why blackmail a publisher when you can buy a television show? No one is accusing McCaffrey of buying airtime to aggrandize himself, but good intentions are no excuse for paving a road to hell. Moreover, according to Salon reporter Daniel Forbes the purchase of altered television programs may have been illegal under the payola laws.

But doesn't everyone agree that drug use is a national problem to be fought with every means necessary? No, everyone does not agree. We are currently spending billions of dollars and putting hundreds of thousands of otherwise law-abiding citizens in prison in support of the war on drugs. The drug war itself has created large increases in homicide and other violent crimes, just as did alcohol prohibition. Many people, from Nobel prize-winning economist Milton Friedman to New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson have called for an end to the war on drugs. Many others are beginning to question the war. Whether or not one agrees with Friedman and Johnson, it is clear that the drug war is a political question. We are not just dealing with government propaganda to eat less fat. McCaffrey's purchase of altered television programs was a political act designed to sway public opinion.

Medical marijuana laws, for example, were recently passed by voter initiatives in California, Alaska, Arizona, Oregon, Nevada, and Washington, but medical marijuana laws are opposed by McCaffrey. The voters showed good sense in permitting the medical use of marijuana. Numerous scientific studies show that marijuana is effective in treating a wide variety of disorders. After reviewing the evidence on marijuana's medical uses, the editor of the New England Journal of Medicine, Dr. Jerome Kassirer, wrote "Federal authorities should rescind their prohibition of the medical use of marijuana for seriously ill patients and allow physicians to decide which patients to treat." McCaffrey's office says it supports accurate portrayal of drug use, but did the ONDCP offer to pay for television programs showing how marijuana can help alleviate the suffering of AIDS or multiple sclerosis victims? Of course not.

It's disturbing when the government spends more on advertising than any corporation in America. It's worse when taxpayer dollars are spent to influence public opinion about political issues. It's intolerable when those dollars are used to manipulate programming in ways undisclosed to the viewer. In an October 1999 speech McCaffrey described the goal of his programs as increasing the "mind share" of anti-drug messages with the help of "experts in behavior change." Such language is inconsistent with a society in which the people are meant to control the government and not the other way around.

Barry McCaffrey should learn that the ends do not justify the means. Effective immediately he should resign from his position as drug czar and apologize to the American public for his gross abuse of trust. Failing that the drug czar should be more truthfully renamed: minister for propaganda and national enlightenment.

Andreas Von Buelow Former German Defense Minister, on 911 and the CIA.

Von Buelow accuses US Government and the Mainstream Media of BRAINWASHING all of America with lies manufactured by the CIA.

He served as state-secretary in the German Federal Ministry of Defence (1976-1980) and Minister for Research and Technology (1980-1982), both during the Chancellor Helmut Schmidt administration, and was regarded as a "rising star" of German politics at the time.[1] He served for 25 years as an SPD member of the German parliament (1969-1994). In the late eighties and early nineties, he served on the parliamentary committee on intelligence services. This committee supervises German intelligence agencies and has access to classified information.

In the early nineties, von Bülow also served as SPD ranking member of the Schalck-Golodkowski investigation committee, a task that first led him to inquire into white collar crime in connection with Eastern intelligence services, and later also into what he labels "criminal activities" of Western intelligence services. His first major publication dealing with this realm, In the Name of the State, is a heavily referenced and extensive study focusing mostly on the CIA.

Quotations attributed to Von Buelow from various published interviews:

If what I say is right, the whole US government should end up behind bars" and "They have hidden behind a veil of secrecy and destroyed the evidence - that they invented the story of 19 Muslims working within Osama bin Laden's al-Qa'eda - in order to hide the truth of their own covert operation.

I watched the TV for example and in the same minute that the TV showed the planes flying into the World Trade Center, you found these Palestinians dancing and laughing. And a few days later one could learn that this was fake. It was made by a TV crew of the defense ministry in Israel and they gave candies to the people and they laughed about it. And, nobody reported it. And the question for me was who brought this TV stuff right in time into the national networks like CNN and CBS and so on and so on.

And then the story came out that this had been done by bin Laden and his Al-Qaeda and these 19 people of Muslim background, which did this. And you could watch the Persian journalist, and not one Arabic name was showing up on the passenger list. And then one is interested to see video because all these 19 passengers must have passed the video, a lot of video cameras in Dallas, and New York, and Logan in Boston, and Portland in the North.

It already began just hours after the attacks in New York and Washington - actually it was astounding:

There are 26 intelligence services in the U.S.A. with a budget of $30 billion--which were not able to prevent the attacks. In fact, they didn't even have an inkling they would happen. For 60 decisive minutes, the military and intelligence agencies let the fighter planes stay on the ground, 48 hours later, however, the FBI presented a list of suicide attackers. Within ten days, it emerged that seven of them were still alive.

And why did the FBI chief take no position regarding contradictions? Where the list came from, why it was false? If I were the chief investigator (state attorney) in such a case, I would regularly go to the public, and give information on which leads are valid and which not.

A government which goes to war, must first establish who the attacker, the enemy, is. It has a duty to provide evidence. According to its own admission, it has not been able to present any evidence that would hold up in court.

If this Atta was the decisive man in the operation, it's really strange that he took such a risk of taking a plane that would reach Boston such a short time before the connecting flight. Had his flight been a few minutes late, he would not have been in the plane that was hijacked.

Why should a sophisticated terrorist do this? One can, by the way, read on CNN (Internet) that none of these names were on the official passenger lists. None of them had gone through the check-in procedures. And why did none of the threatened pilots give the agreed-upon code 7700 over the control stick to the ground station?

Why would assailants who, in their preparations, leave tracks behind them like a herd of stampeding elephants? They made payments with credit cards with their own names; they reported to their flight instructors with their own names. They left behind rented cars with flight manuals in Arabic for jumbo jets. They took with them, on their suicide trip, wills and farewell letters, which fall into the hands of the FBI, because they were stored in the wrong place and wrongly addressed. Clues were left like behind like in a child's game of hide-and-seek, which were to be followed!

There is also the theory of one British flight engineer: According to this, the steering of the planes was perhaps taken out of the pilots' hands, from outside.

The Americans had developed a method in the 1970s, whereby they could rescue hijacked planes by intervening into the computer piloting [automatic pilot system]. This theory says, this technique was abused in this case.

And what about the obscure stock transactions? In the week prior to the attacks, the amount of transactions in stocks in American Airlines, United Airlines, and insurance companies, increased 1,200%. It was for a value of $15 billion. Some people must have known something. Who?

With the help of the horrifying attacks, the Western mass democracies were subjected to brainwashing. The enemy image of anti-communism doesn't work any more; it is to be replaced by peoples of Islamic belief. They are accused of having given birth to suicidal terrorism.

For me, since the official version is not credible at all, it's totally incredible. The second solution for me is a covert operation. And this is a way to influence, to brainwash the American people into long, long, ongoing conflict with the Muslim world and all that you get to, for example the oil companies, the last oil reserves which we need for the next decades before the oil age is going out. And probably behind this is a geopolitical thinking that finally China has to be taken out. China is too big and you have to be able to- this is put down in the New American Century, which has been written by a lot of people who are now in government like Cheney, like Rumsfeld and others.

Nobody can prove what happened on 911 directly because it has been a covert operation and you don't find proof; you will find only indications. If you have a covert operation the probability is always that the leftover pieces of proof are taken away immediately and a lot of secrecy, a band of secrecy, has taken over everything. And, this has happened with 9 11.

The idea of the enemy image doesn't come from me. It comes from Zbigniew Brzezinski and Samuel Huntington, two policy-makers of American intelligence and foreign policy. Already in the middle of he 1990s, Huntingon believed, people in Europe and the U.S. needed someone they could hate--this would strengthen their identification with their own society. And Brzezinski, the mad dog, as adviser to President Jimmy Carter, campaigned for the exclusive right of the U.S. to seize all the raw materials of the world, especially oil and gas.

The events of Sept. 11 fit perfectly in the concept of the armaments industry, the intelligence agencies, the whole military-industrial-academic complex. This is in fact conspicuous. The huge raw materials reserves of the former Soviet Union are now at their disposal, also the pipeline routes.

I can state: the planning of the attacks was technically and organizationally a master achievement. To hijack four huge airplanes within a few minutes and within one hour, to drive them into their targets, with complicated flight maneuvers! This is unthinkable, without years-long support from secret apparatuses of the state and industry.

"Conspiracy Theorist!" Yeah, yeah. That's the ridicule heaped on those raising these questions by those who would prefer to follow the official, politically correct line. Even investigative journalists are fed propaganda and disinformation. Anyone who doubts that, doesn't have all his marbles!

Andreas Von Buelow quotes continued...

In the 1970s, I was state secretary in the Defense Ministry; in 1993, I was the SPD [Social Democratic Party] speaker in the Schalk-Golodkowski investigation committee-- (Schalck-Golodkowski mediated, among other things, various business deals abroad). And it all began there! Until that time, I did not have any great knowledge of the work of intelligence agencies. And now we had to take note of a great discrepancy: We shed light on the dealings of the Stasi and other East bloc intelligence agencies in the field of economic criminality, but as soon as we wanted to know something about the activities of the BND [German intelligence] or the CIA, it was mercilessly blocked. No information, no cooperation, nothing! That's when I was first taken aback.

We found, for example, a clue in Rostock, where Schalck organized his weapons depot. Well, then we happened upon an affiliation of Schalck in Panama, and then we happened upon Manuel Noriega, who was for many years President, drug dealer, and money launderer, all in one, right? And this Noriega was also on the payroll of the CIA, for $200,000 a year. These were things that really made me curious. What has gone on, and goes on, in the name of intelligence services, are true crimes.

Getting intelligence about the intentions of an enemy, makes sense. It is important when one tries to put oneself into the mind of the enemy. Whoever wants to understand the CIA's methods, has to deal with its main tasks, {covert operations}: below the level of war, and outside international law, foreign states are to be influenced, by organizing insurrections, terrorist attacks, usually combined with drugs and weapons trade, and money laundering. This is essentially very simple: One arms violent people with weapons. Since, however, it must not under any circumstances come out, that there is an intelligence agency behind it, all traces are erased, with tremendous deployment of resources.

I have the impression that this kind of intelligence agency spends 90% of its time this way: creating false leads. So that, if anyone suspects the collaboration of the agencies, he is accused of the sickness of conspiracy madness. The truth often comes out only years later. CIA chief Allen Dulles once said: In case of doubt, I would even lie to the Congress!

The terrorists behaved in such a way to attract attention. And as practicing Muslims, they were in a strip-tease bar, and, drunken, stuck dollar bills into the panty of the dancer.

As a lone fighter, I cannot prove anything, that's beyond my capabilities. I have real difficulties, however, to imagine that all this all sprung out of the mind of an evil man in his cave. Remember the first attack on the WorldTrade Center in 1993? Six people were killed and over a thousand wounded, by a bomb explosion.

In the middle was the bombmaker, a former Egyptian officer. He had pulled together some Muslims for the attack. They were snuck into the country by the CIA, despite a State Department ban on their entry. At the same time, the leader of the band was an FBI informant.

And he made a deal with the authorities. At the last minute, the dangerous explosive material would be replaced by a harmless powder. The FBI did not stick to the deal. The bomb exploded, so to speak, with the knowledge of the FBI. The official story of the crime was quickly found: The criminals were evil Muslims.

And today we know: It was the strategy of the American security adviser, Zbigniew Brzezinski, to destabilize the Soviet Union from neighboring Muslim countries. They lured the Russians into Afghanistan, and then prepared for them a hell on earth, their Vietnam. With decisive support of the U.S. intelligence agencies, at least 30,000 Muslim fighters were trained in Afghanistan and Pakistan, a bunch of good-for-nothings and fanatics who were, and still are today, ready for anything.

And one of them is Osama bin Laden. I wrote years ago: `It was out of this brood, that the Taliban grew up in Afghanistan, who had been brought up in the Koran schools financed by American and Saudi funds, the Taliban who are now terrorizing the country and destroying it.'

One must always keep this gruesome act in mind. Nonetheless, in the analysis of political processes, I am allowed to look and see who has advantages and disadvantages, and what is coincidental. When in doubt, it is always worthwhile to take a look at a map, where are raw materials resources, and the routes to them? Then lay a map of civil wars and conflicts on top of that--they coincide. The same is the case with the third map: nodal points of the drug trade. Where this all comes together, the American intelligence services are not far away. By the way, the Bush family is linked to oil, gas, and weapons trade, through the bin Laden family.

The CIA, in the state interests of the U.S., does not have to abide by any law in interventions abroad, is not bound by international law; only the President gives orders. And when funds are cut, peace is on the horizon, then a bomb explodes somewhere. Thus it is proven, that you can't do without the intelligence services; and that the critics are {nuts,} as Father Bush called them, Bush who was once CIA head and President.

You have to see that the U.S. spends $30 billion on intelligence services, and $13 billion on anti-drug work. And what comes out of it? The chief of a special unit of the strategic anti-drug work, Michael Levin, declared in despair, after 30 years of service, that in every big, important drug case, the CIA came in and took it out of my hands.

Everybody knows that there was news about insider trading. I think altogether fifteen billion dollars. So, normally you could find out because I think the CIA together with the Treasury developed this market monitoring system to find out speculation about terrorist attacks. So, they could immediately find out if there was something going on. And, in this case, the NSA people which are the guys watching via satellites the whole of the transactions going on, on Earth, they told the people to destroy the tapes. They had tapes about this insider trading and they said they had to destroy them so they are not any longer proof.

The whole background of - the whole personalities like bin Laden, like Al Qaeda, like Taliban, even Saddam Hussein, these are all figures that were handled by the CIA in former times. So probably they are recycled in the system now as bad guys. Before, they were the good guys taking away the Russians out of Afghanistan and dealing with this, getting money for this, getting paid for this now they are used as bad guys. Usama bin Laden has been, in 95, in the Balkans in an operation the Americans were with the UKG in Albania. You find these guys all over; you find these guys in Chechnya for example. There are also former Afghanis as they are called and they are flown in loaded planes of the CIA for example.

It's a question of whether democracy will survive and whether the state of law is kept up or we'll be driven by public relations and financial interest. And I think the main thing for the Americans is who pays for all this. Because, if the oil companies get more cheap oil and make their money out of it, the American taxpayer has to pay for the military machine. The oil companies aren't paying for that. It's not the military-industrial complex paying for that, it is the American taxpayer so it's extremely important.

Who are the forces behind government? I do not understand this. If you look at who owns the munitions factory in the East-West conflict or the Near-East conflict, they are always trying to sell their material to both sides. And, they are always interested in conflict and they would like after the breakdown of the Soviet Union, the noble thing would be to cut down this military-industrial complex, which costs the American taxpayer a huge amount of money.

Exactly the same time the Soviet Union breaks down, this new terror thing comes up. The first terrorist attacks were I think the World Trade Center one and you find out the leading guy of this bombing, this time an agricultural bomb, he was going immediately to FBI and saying I'll tell you everything about this and they agreed finally twenty-four hours before the attack in 1993, they would change the powder, the dangerous powder against the [non] dangerous powder and the FBI didn't come up to do this so people were [injured] and six people were dead.

In Oklahoma you had nearly the same thing. You had two attacks. One was perhaps McViegh and this other guy but there was another attack much more strong than this agricultural bomb and there is an American general, an Air Force general who for I think ten years or fifteen years in charge of this explosive institute and he said never could this fertilizer bomb bring about such damage. There must be something else and they found that within the building there were demolition charges.

Search for the truth!

To assume that the government were independent in these questions, would be naive.

My task is concluded by saying, it could not have been that way [according to the official story].

Search for the truth!

The Mexican invasion of illegals:
The real kicker for this is Mr. Bush's stance on the Border issue.

They know who really did 911 and that is why they unlike most Americans don't think these illegals are a threat. Acutually they're not into the gated rich communities with their private schools.

But they are to the suburban communities, who report incidents of increased gang warfare, rape, crime, and increased drug trade.

Small price these elitiest feel, to further the plans of Bilderberg, and CFR, to make North America one big country. All on a march to the New World Order, one the globalists Jesuits have supported for centuries.

Vatican Wealth "Truly Astonishing" As Simple Beggar Asking For Help Reveals World Problems
According to researchers, Catholic Church infiltrated by Illuminists disguised as Jesuits with world domination as their goal and deception and war their main tools.
16 Mar 2006

By Greg Szymanski

The Italian priest saying Mass in what looked like a gold plated church near the Spanish Steps in Rome was about to give his sermon when in stormed a street beggar screaming at the top of his lungs.

"Give me the money and give it to the starving people like me. All criminals at the altar, especially you Father with all those golden rings and chalices!" cried the street person in Italian, as several church ushers rushed to remove him from the premises.

While being pushed out of the Church like a piece of garbage, he made one last plea to those attending Holy Sunday Mass. "Don't give him the money, please don't give it him! I need to eat. So do many others. All they do here is steal your money while many die in the streets.!"

The incident occurred on a bright sunny summer morning in 1982 at a time when the Vatican Bank was entangled in Italy's biggest financial scandal in its history, involving high ranking Vatican figures, the P2 Masonic Lodge, the Mafia and corrupt politicians and financiers.

And it was a time - especially in Rome and behind the Vatican walls - when all the bigwigs were covering their dirty tracks, covering trails that most likely led to the untimely death of Pope Paul I, Bank of Ambrosian chairman, Roberto Calvi, financier Michael Sindona and the looting of billions of dollars from Vatican bank coffers.

The murders and the whereabouts of the stolen money still remain a mystery today, but the incident with the street beggar in the small Rome Church said it all.

In one quick, desperate moment a poor man spoke the true words of God in his own house, exposing the criminals who have infiltrated the Catholic Church for what they really are - common thieves and thugs who hide behind the cloth, using their collected wealth for evil not good, while millions die around the world from war and starvation.

For those in attendance, including this journalist, at what can be called the "Beggar's Mass," it was a moment of awakening, perhaps a moment that put the entire global conflict into proper prospective, as greed and power ushered out the poor and needy right at the altar of God.

If anyone is interested, the unknown Italian street beggar wasn't given any food that day from the fat cats at the Church. In fact, the golden doors were slammed shut on his face as the man walked off, disappearing down the narrow and cobblestoned Rome streets.

But as he walked off, the Vatican scandal raged on in the Italian papers, illustrating the enormous divide between the rich and poor and the impossible task of straightening things out.

Further, the corruption in the Church and the manipulation of its vast wealth continues today, as many observers and researchers claim the Illuminati, for lack of a better word, have not only taken over the vast wealth, influence and power of the Catholic Church, but also of all the other major religions and governments of the world.

And if anyone thinks controlling the Vatican's wealth and holdings isn't an important priority of the New World Order's global domination and genocide plan, think again.

Many historians and researchers and even one American Congressman have openly said the Vatican, through the Jesuit Order in firm control of the Illuminati, is also in control of the United States Federal Reserve.

And they contend whoever controls the Federal Reserve of New York controls the whole United States Federal Reserve, saying the roots of this control lead to the Vatican

In his 1980's book Vatican Billions, the late Avro Manhattan, a writer and researcher who prescribes to the above theory, detailed a portion of the Vatican holdings, revealing its vast wealth and influence around the world. Further, other contemporary researchers suggested the Vatican's true wealth has since greatly multiplied and the vast fortune may never be known since the bank is cloaked in secrecy, no oversight and considered to be the perfect money laundering system.

"The Vatican has large investments with the Rothschilds of Britain, France and America, with the Hambros Bank, with the Credit Suisse in London and Zurich. In the United States it has large investments with the Morgan Bank, the Chase-Manhattan Bank, the First National Bank of New York, the Bankers Trust Company, and others," wrote Manhattan.

"The Vatican has billions of shares in the most powerful international corporations such as Gulf Oil, Shell, General Motors, Bethlehem Steel, General Electric, International Business Machines, T.W.A., etc. At a conservative estimate, these amount to more than 500 million dollars in the U.S.A. alone."

Manhattan's complete findings can be read in his book Vatican Billions, but here is a excerpt of some important Vatican financial facts:

"In a statement published in connection with a bond prospectus, the Boston archdiocese listed its assets at Six Hundred and Thirty-five Million ($635,891,004), which is 9.9 times its liabilities. This leaves a net worth of Five Hundred and Seventy-one million dollars ($571,704,953). It is not difficult to discover the truly astonishing wealth of the church, once we add the riches of the twenty-eight archdioceses and 122 dioceses of the U.S.A., some of which are even wealthier than that of Boston.

"Some idea of the real estate and other forms of wealth controlled by the Catholic church may be gathered by the remark of a member of the New York Catholic Conference, namely 'that his church probably ranks second only to the United States Government in total annual purchase.' Another statement, made by a nationally syndicated Catholic priest, perhaps is even more telling. 'The Catholic Church,' he said, 'must be the biggest corporation in the United States. We have a branch office in every neighborhood. Our assets and real estate holdings must exceed those of Standard Oil, A.T.&T., and U.S. Steel combined. And our roster of dues-paying members must be second only to the tax rolls of the United States Government.'

"The Catholic church, once all her assets have been put together, is the most formidable stockbroker in the world. The Vatican, independently of each successive pope, has been increasingly orientated towards the U.S. The Wall Street Journal said that the Vatican's financial deals in the U.S. alone were so big that very often it sold or bought gold in lots of a million or more dollars at one time.

"The Vatican's treasure of solid gold has been estimated by the United Nations World Magazine to amount to several billion dollars. A large bulk of this is stored in gold ingots with the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank, while banks in England and Switzerland hold the rest. But this is just a small portion of the wealth of the Vatican, which in the U.S. alone, is greater than that of the five wealthiest giant corporations of the country. When to that is added all the real estate, property, stocks and shares abroad, then the staggering accumulation of the wealth of the Catholic church becomes so formidable as to defy any rational assessment.

"The Catholic church is the biggest financial power, wealth accumulator and property owner in existence. She is a greater possessor of material riches than any other single institution, corporation, bank, giant trust, government or state of the whole globe. The pope, as the visible ruler of this immense amassment of wealth, is consequently the richest individual of the twentieth century. No one can realistically assess how much he is worth in terms of billions of dollars."

Further. Manhattan in his book talks about how the Phillipines has virtually been taken over by the Vatican and its infiltrators, who are hijacking the Church.

Manhattan traces in his book, specifically in chapters 1-11, how millions of Filipinos are unaware that their country is secretly controlled by the Roman Catholic Church, adding there is no doubt that the Jesuit Order is the master planner.

"The very reason, the Philippines is now in deep political turmoil and economic trouble and now one of the poor country in the world," wrote Manhattan. "As I've said many times that the Catholic Church is the hidden central conspiracy force manipulating the Philippines."

WHERE THE VATICAN WEALTH IS STORED

Furthermore, millions of Filipinos are unaware that the Republic Of The Philippines is secretly controlled by the Roman
Catholic Church. Indeed no doubt that the Jesuit Order is the master planner. The very reason, the Philippines is now in
deep political turmoil and economic trouble and now one of the poor country in the world.

As I've said many times that the Catholic Church is the hidden central conspiracy force manipulating the Philippines.

Preface
By Peritus
The Jesuits are different. Every Catholic Priest knows this. The Jesuits have an uncanny manner financially. Operating behind the scenes, they seem very inconspicuous, but when the wills of rich Catholics, and very many non-Catholics, are filed for probate. strangely some Jesuit institution is there for a sizable amount.
They are so different in their priestly deportment and social conduct too, that other priests feel ill at ease and uncomfortable in their presence. A priestly "blast" never really gets organized until after the Jesuits have gone home. The prevailing atmosphere, when they are present, is one of uneasy suspicion. Other priests feel as though the "Jebbies" will immediately take off for the Bishop's mansion to stool on all of them. This of course is ridiculous because most bishops are just as leary of the Jesuits as are the working clergy.

Lay people also think that Jesuits are different. They speak of the Society of Jesus as the "educated clergy," -- the "teaching arm of the church". They have the "most schools" -- which is true. The quality of those schools is another question. None of them, at least in the U.S. has ever won an award for the volume of scientists or philosophers it produced. Voltaire went to a Jesuit school. He said later that he learned Latin and nonsense.

The Jesuits write the most books -- which is also true. In fact it is said that any Jesuit who can pen one word after another seems forced "under obedience" to write a book. Judging by a perusal of them, the subject matter or the treatment seems of very little consequence.

The laity are told that the Jesuits are smarter than other priests because they go to school longer. The laity do not realize that for some years those Jesuits are in their schools not as students, but as teachers -- callow, young, inexperienced boys carrying on the "great tradition" of Jesuit education.

The laity, Catholic and non-Catholic, are also told that the Jesuits are much more selective in their choice of candidates than other orders or diocesan seminaries. They pick only the smarter and more promising youngsters and thus insure a continuing crop of great scholars, teachers, philosophers, orators and, not mentioned, ecclesiastical politicians.

The truth is, as clerical wags have put it, that the Jesuits have just as large a percentage of lesser I.Q.'s as any other church order but they are smart enough to hide the numbskulls in their foreign missions to primitive countries. In fact, it has also been said, that this is the principal reason why the Jesuits have foreign missions.

However, in spite of these disparaging introductory qualifications, there can be no gainsaying the fact that the Jesuits possess a hard core of extremely intelligent, intensely loyal, politically shrewd, carefully calculating individuals. This has been so since the days of their founder, Ignatius of Loyola. A catalog of their names would include a large percentage of the great minds of the Roman Catholic Church since the sixteenth century.

Any honest student of church history must admit that behind the scenes, they have been the governing genius of the Vatican -- even though, more often than not, an evil genius.

The Jesuit Order is an absolute monarchy. Their general, "the Black Pope" rules for life. The pattern of their own Order has molded their thinking about all other political structures, including, but not confined to, the Vatican.

The Jesuits fought the democratic aspirations of the French when they helped engineer the "Massacre of St. Bartholomew's Eve". They were the force behind Pope Pius IX and were his principal counsellors. The Italian people knew that the Jesuits were the strongest opponents of the Unification of Italy and hated them accordingly. The Jesuits promoted the dogma of the Immaculate Conception and of the Infallibility of the Pope. They wert, the experts behind the experts of the First Vatican Council in 1870 just as they are of the Second Vatican Council.

It is obvious that an organization so vast (the largest in the Roman Church) covering the globe, and engaged in so many activities, some open and honorable, and others secret, delicate and "jesuitical" would have to have a set of rules and regulations for its own internal control much more detailed and stringent than the conventional "rules" or "constitutions" of St. Benedict, St. Francis or the other run-of-the-mill orders and congregations.

Knowing also that the bulk of the Jesuits at the grass roots did not possess the sagacity, shrewdness and ruthlessness of the "boys" in the "back room" in Rome it was necessary that many enterprises, such as "advising" rich widows, picking of rich men's sons to be prospective Jesuits, or purging the Order of a hapless Jesuit who began to think for himself, should be speeded out in detail.

But above all things it was necessary that such regulations should be kept secret. They were to be confided only to trusted superiors and if accidentally found. they were to be denounced as base forgeries.

They are called the "MONITA SECRETA SOCIETATIS JESU" -- "The Secret Instructions of the Society of Jesus."

The average "lower-case" Jesuit, not being in on the know, will sincerely tell indignant devout inquirers that these regulations are fictitious. The smart "upper-case" Jesuit knows that he had better deny their existence. He might not live to regret his indiscretion,

The existence of the "Secret Regulations of the Jesuits" has been proven beyond all possibility of successful legal refutation.

Most unbiased historians of the Roman Catholic Church and of the Jesuits acknowledge the existence of the "Monita".

The British historian, Andrew Steinmetz, in his monumental, precisely documented, "History of the Jesuits", published in London in 1848, devotes several pages to an analysis of the genuineness and history of the "Monita". He outlines the book with the same succession of chapters and content as reproduced in this present volume. He concludes that "secret regulations" did exist, considering 1) overt statements of Jesuit Generals, 2) missing chapters in early editions of the official "Constitutions", and 3) the actual conduct of the Jesuits, in so many countries and for so long. As proof of the latter he cites the catering to the rich, the rapid acquisition of tremendous power and wealth and the infiltration of the royal powers by the Jesuits as court confessors, with their tolerance of licentiousness in order to gain power. (Vol. III, p. 363, 364, 365, 366). Of the allegations themselves he cites thousands of documented instances in the 1660 pages of his volumes.

The following paragraphs are from the autobiography of a very precise and erudite ex-Jesuit. His death places him and his words beyond the customary effective reprisals of the Order.


"The MONITA SECRETA SOCIETATIS JESU ('Secret Instruction of the Society of Jesus') first appeared in print in Cracow in 1612, after they had already been circulated in manuscript form. The editor seems to have been the ex-Jesuit Zahorowski. Almost innumerable editions and reprints in all civilized tongues followed one another. The latest edition was published at Bamberg in 1904.
"The importance of the publication follows from the fact that, directly after its appearance, the General of the Order, Mutius Vitelleschi, twice (in 1616 and 1617) instructed the German Jesuit, Gretser, a prominent theologian of the Order, to refute it, and that up to most recent times Jesuit after Jesuit has come forward to repudiate it.

"It is natural that the Jesuits themselves should deny the genuineness in a flood of refutations. But such denials only merit the belief or unbelief which the denial of every defendant deserves. Only sound proof can turn the scale against the genuineness of the Monita. And such proofs have not been produced up to now by the Jesuits. Nor has any convincing invalidation of the facts advanced on behalf of its genuineness been produced.

"The advocates of their genuineness rely essentially on the fact that the manuscript copies of the Monita, upon which the printed edition is based, were to be found in Jesuit colleges. The discovery of such copies in the colleges of Prague, Paris, Roermond (Holland), Munich, and Paderborn is beyond question. The copy in the Jesuit house in Paderborn was found 'in a cupboard in the Rector's room' (in scriniis rectoris). The manuscript copy at Munich, belonging to the contents of the library of the Jesuit college of this place, which was suppressed in 1773, was only found in 1870 in a secret recess behind the altar of the old Jesuit Church of St. Michael at Munich. It would be a decisive token of genuineness if it could be proved positively that the Prague copy was already there in 1611 -- i.e. before the first printed edition in 1612. J. Friedrich's statement makes this seem probable, but not certain. What the Jesuit Duhr writes to the contrary is of no value. It is certain, however, that the discovery in Prague was so disagreeable to the Jesuits that the chief champion of the spuriousness of the MONITA, the Jesuit Forer, considered it advisable to pass it over in silence in his work of repudiation, Anatomia Anatomiae Societatis Jesu. On the other hand, he zealously demonstrated -- what no one disputed -- that the copy at Paderborn was only brought to light after the first edition had been published. Forer's silence is the more remarkable, as a manuscript note, intended for his book, treats the Prague discovery as a fact. The saying that those who keep silence when they could and should speak seem to give consent, comes to my mind in the case of this ominous silence."


These quoted words were written by a German ex-Jesuit, Count Von Hoensbroech, after he left the Jesuit priesthood in 1900*.
* "Fourteen Years a Jesuit" Paul Von Hoensbroech, Cassel & Co. Ltd. London, New York 1911, Vol II p. 7-9.

The chapter headings are almost verbatim identical with the chapter headings of the text reproduced in this booklet.

And therein lies a story.

The text of the "Secret Instructions of the Society of Jesus" reproduced here was found beneath the pallet on an adobe bed in a cottage in the Andes Mountains of Peru about a century ago.

Students of the Incas recall that prior to the expedition of the National Geographic Magazine under Hiram Bingham, in 1911, archaeologists from European countries probed the ruins of this people, one of the greatest civilizations in history.

In 1870 a French archeologist slipped unobtrusively into the office of the Secretary of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry in San Francisco, California.

He had been sent into the remote recesses of the Andes, where Pizarro and his army had conquered the Incas more than three centuries before. He had rented a room in a tiny village. This he used as a base of his operations. To this spot he returned periodically to rest from the dangerously high altitudes and to write his reports for shipment back to France.

While he was away, the family frequently rented the same room to overnight guests. One of these happened to be a Jesuit official. On his departure he forgot a little book which he had hidden under the mattress. The French archeologist accidentally found it.

It was the "Secret Instructions of the Society of Jesus" -- the top classified manual of procedure for the trusted leaders of the Jesuit Order.

It was in Latin and bore the seal, signature and attestation of the General and Secretary of the Order in Rome.

For the next few days the Frenchman labored furiously translating the work in stenographic notes into French. He then replaced the book and left.

The Jesuit returned in a few days inquiring nervously about his little black packet. He also wanted to know if anyone had occupied the room since his departure. On learning of the archeologist he began a search so relentless that the Frenchman had to leave Peru. He finally reached San Francisco and entrusted his precious but dangerous burden to Edwin A. Sherman 32 degree Mason, the Secretary of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry in California.

Mr. Sherman included the "Secret Instructions" in his book "The Engineer Corps of Hell" published in 1882.

For several years Edwin Sherman was the Masonic Historian of California. He was highly esteemed for his great accuracy and dependability. This can be verified now by anyone who will inquire about him of the Grand Secretary of the Grand Lodge of Freemasonry at the Grand Lodge office in the Masonic Memorial Temple, 1111 California St., San Francisco, Calif.

Another point that emphasizes the credibility of this work is the identity of this copy, found in the fantastically inaccessible heights of the Andes in Peru, with the copy quoted by Count Von Hoensbroech in Germany, Considering that Von Hoensbroech's rendition was translated from the German and Sherman's from Latin to French and then into English the similarity is still striking.

Here are a few examples:

Sherman: Ch. XI -- "How We Must Conduct Ourselves Unitedly Against Those Who Have Been Expelled From the Society."

Von Hoensbroech: "What Attitude Should Be Taken By Our Followers In Regard to Those Dismissed From the Order?"

Sherman: Ch. VI -- "OF the Mode of Attracting Rich Widows."

Von Hoensbroech: "How May Rich Widows be Well Disposed Towards the Society of Jesus?"

Sherman: Ch. IV -- "OF That Which We Must Charge the Preachers and Confessors of the Great of the Earth."

Von Hoensbroech: "What Attitude Must be Taken up by Court-Chaplains and Princely Confessors?"

The text that follows is one of the most effective documents ever written. The tremendous wealth and power of the Jesuit Order is ample proof of that contention.

Those who have observed the Jesuits from the vantage point of the secular clergy or of another order have often wondered at their astounding success in becoming the recipients of wealthy estates, of influencing prominent citizens, Catholic and non-Catholic alike, into endorsing and endowing their colleges and universities, of instilling their scholastics and other students with a spirit of self-dedication and self immolation that would make both the Pope and Hitler feel frustrated.

A careful study of the "Secret Instructions" will give the answer. Here is a plan of financial, intellectual and military strategy that should make the planners of West Point or Number 10 Downing Street feel inferior.

Check, for example, the following:

Ch. II -- "THE MANNER WITH WHICH THE FATHERS OF THE SOCIETY MUST CONDUCT THEMSELVES TO ACQUIRE AND PRESERVE THE FAMILIARITY OF PRINCES, MAGNATES, AND POWERFUL AND RICH PERSONS."

(Think then how well the Jesuits have done with the local State Bar, the Chamber of Commerce, national corporations, wealthy foundations, in comparison with the failure of the local corner parish clergy. Think how well Georgetown, Fordham, Marquette, and Creighton have done in comparison with the Dominicans, the Sulpicians or the Franciscans!)

Ch. VI -- "OF THE MODE OF ATTRACTING RICH WIDOWS."

Just read them and weep, brethren! Read especially this sentence p. 8 "Insist upon the advantages of widowhood, and the inconvenience of marriage, in particular that of a repeated one, and the dangers to which she will be exposed, relatively to her particular businesses into which we are desirous of penetrating."

Ch. XI -- "HOW WE MUST CONDUCT OURSELVES UNITEDLY AGAINST THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN EXPELLED FROM THE SOCIETY."

This is a portrait of the pattern of persecution and annihilation that every ex-Jesuit, and in truth, every past ex- priest knows, and every future dissident can expect.

Ch. XV -- "HOW THE COMPANY MUST BE CONDUCTED WITH THE MONKS AND NUNS."

(Meaning other religious Orders -- of course)

Ch. XVI -- "HOW WE MUST MAKE PROFESSION OF DESPISING RICHES."

The gem of them all -- really meaning "How we must pretend to despise riches."

What more vicious enemies could the bishops and diocesan clergy have than those Jesuit Monitors who wrote: "We must inquire into and note the defects of the other fathers and when we find them, we must divulge them among our faithful friends as though condoling over them." (Ch. V. p. 17)

Read the Jesuits' opinion of other religious orders "calling attention to the indolence and stupidity of the Monks as if they were cattle." (Ch. XVII P. 41)

The Jesuits themselves should be concerned with the fact that history does repeat itself. In Mexico, in Peru, in France, in Italy, in Germany, in Spain, in Portugal, in Paraguay, in Colombia, in Brazil, in Argentina, in Chile, in Austria and in very many other countries the Jesuits gained so much wealth, in land, in buildings and in money, that others became jealous.

In every country the Jesuits were thrown out. Their property and wealth was confiscated.

The Jesuits are now repeating their history in the United States of America. Their landed wealth and holdings are fabulous.

What makes them think that history will not inexorably and inevitably repeat itself again here in America?

These particular instructions must be guarded and kept with careful attention by the superiors, communicated with prudent caution to a few of the professors; in the meantime there does not exist any other thing so good for the Society; but we are charged with the most profound silence, and to make a false show, should they be written by any one though founded in the experience we have had. As there are various professors who are in these secrets, the Society has fixed the rule, that those who know these reserved instructions that they cannot pass in any one religious Order, whether it be of the Carthusians, to cause them to retire from that in which they live, and the inviolable silence with which they are to be guarded, all of which has been confirmed by the Holy See. Much care must be taken that they do not get out; for these counsels in the hands of strange persons to the Society, because they will give a sinister interpretation invidious to our situation.

If (unless God does not permit) we reach success, we must openly deny that the Society shelters such thoughts and to take care that it is so affirmed by those of the Society that they are ignorant by not having been communicated, which they can protest with truth, that they know nothing of such instructions; and that there does not exist other than the general printed or manuscripts, which they can present, to cause any doubt to vanish. The superiors must with prudence and discretion, inquire if any of the Society have shown these instructions to strangers; for neither for himself, or for another, they must be copied by no one, without permission of the General or of the Provincial; and when it is feared that anyone has given notice of these instructions, we shall not be able to guard so rigorous a secret; and we must assert to the contrary, all that is said in them, it will be so given to be understood, that they only show to all, to be proved, and afterwards they will be dismissed.


CHAPTER 1.
THE MANNER OF PROCEDURE WITH WHICH THE SOCIETY MUST BE CONDUCTED WHEN CONSIDERING THE COMMENCING OF SOME FOUNDATION.
1. To capture the will of the inhabitants of a country, it is very important to manifest the intent of the Society, in the manner prescribed in the regulations in which it is said, that the Society must labor with such ardor and force for the salvation of their neighbor as for themselves. For the better inducement of this idea, the most opportunely that we practice the most humble offices, visiting the poor, the afflicted, and the imprisoned. It is very convenient to confess with much promptness, and to hear the confessions, showing indifference, without teasing the penitents; for this, the most notable inhabitants will admire our fathers and esteem them; for the great charity they have for all, and the novelty of the subject.
2. To have in mind that it is necessary to ask with religious modesty, the means for exercising the duties of the Society, and that it is needful to procure and acquire benevolence, principally of the secular ecclesiastics, and of persons of authority, that may be conceived necessary.

3. When called to go to the most distant places, where alms are to be received, they are to be accepted, no matter how small they may be, after having marked out the necessities of ourselves. Notwithstanding, it will be very convenient at the moment to give those alms to the poor, for the edification of those who do not have an exact understanding of the Society; and, "but we must in advance be more liberal with ourselves."

4. All must labor as if we were inspired by the same spirit; and each one must study to acquire the same styles, with the object of uniformity among so great a number of persons, edifying the whole; those who do the contrary must be expelled as pernicious.

5. In a beginning it is not convenient to purchase property; but in case they can be found, some good sites may be bought, saying that they are to belong to other persons, using the names of some faithful friends, who will guard the secret. The better to make our poverty apparent, the property nearest our college must belong to colleges the most distant, that we can prevent the princes and magistrates from ever knowing that the income of the Society has a fixed point.

6. We must not ourselves go out to reside to form colleges, except to the rich cities; for in this we must imitate Christ, who remained in Jerusalem; and as he alone, passed by the less considerable populations.

7. We must obtain and acquire of the widows all the money that we can, presenting ourselves at repeated times to their sight our extreme necessity.

8. The Superior over each province is the one to whom we must account with certainty, the income of the same; but the amount to the treasurer at Rome, it is, and must always be, an impenetrable mystery.

9. It is for us to preach and say in all parts and in all conversations, that we have come to teach the young and aid the people; and this without interest in any single species and without exception of persons, and that we are not so onerous to the people as other religious orders.


CHAPTER II.
THE MANNER WITH WHICH THE FATHERS OF THE ORDER MUST CONDUCT THEMSELVES TO ACQUIRE AND PRESERVE THE FAMILIARITY OF PRINCES, MAGNATES AND POWERFUL AND RICH PERSONS.
1. It is necessary to do all that is possible to gain completely the attentions and affections of princes and persons of the most consideration; for that, who, being on the outside, but in advance, all of them will be constituted our defenders.
2. As we have learned by experience that princes and potentates are generally inclined to the favor of the ecclesiastics, when these disseminate their odious actions, and when they give an interpretation that they favor, as is to be noted among the married, contract with their relations or allies; or in other similar things; assembling much with them, to animate those who may be found in this case, saying to them that we confide in the assurance of the exemptions, that by intervention of us fathers, which the Pope will concede, if he is made to see the causes, and will present other examples of similar things, exhibiting at the same time the sentiments that we favor, under the pretext of the common good and THE GREATER GLORY OF GOD that is the object of the Society.

3. If at this same assembly the prince treats of doing something, that will not be agreeable to all the great men, for which we are to stir up and investigate, meanwhile, counseling others to conform with the prince, without ever descending to treat of particulars, for fear there may not be a successful issue of the matter, for which the Society will be imputed blame; and for this, if this action shall be disapproved, there will be advertences presented to the contrary that may be absolutely prohibited and put in jeopardy, the authority of some of the fathers, of whom it can be said with certainty, that they have not had notice of the Secret Instructions; for that, it can be affirmed with an oath, that the calumny to the Society, is not true in respect to that which is imputed to it.

4. To gain the good will of Princes, it will be very convenient to insinuate with skill; and for third persons, that we fathers, are a means to discharge honorable and favorable duties in the courts of other kings and princes, and more than any one else in that of the Pope. By this means we can recommend ourselves and the Society; for the same, no one must be charged with this commission but the most zealous persons and well versed in our institute.

5. Aiming especially to bring over the will of the favorites of princes and of their servants, by means of presents and pious offices, that they may give faithful notice to us fathers of the character and inclinations of the princes and great men. Of this manner the Society can gain with facility as much to one as to others.

6. The experience we have had, has made us acquainted with the many advantages that have been taken by the Society of its intervention in the marriages of the House of Austria, and of those which have been effected in other kingdoms, France, Poland, and in various duchies. Forasmuch assembling, proposing with prudence, selecting choice persons who may be friends and families of the relatives, and of the friends of the Society.

7. It will be easy to gain the princesses, making use of their valets; by that, coming to feed and nourish with relations of friendship, by being located at the entrance in all parts, and thus become acquainted with the most intimate secrets of the familiars.

8. In regard to the direction of the consciences of great men, we confessors must follow the writers who concede the greater liberty of conscience. The contrary of this is to appear too religious; for that they will decide to leave others and submit entirely to our direction and counsels.

9. It is necessary to make reference to all the merits of the Society; to the princes and prelates, and to as many as can lend much aid to the Society, after having shown the transcendency of its great privileges.

10. Also, it will be useful to demonstrate, with prudence and skill, such ample power which the Society has, to absolve, even in the reserved cases, compared with that of other pastors and priests; also, that of dispensing with the fasts, and of the rights which they must ask and pay, in the impediments of marriage, by which means many persons will recur to us, whom it will be our duty to make agreeable.

11. It is not the less useful to invite them to our sermons, assemblies, harangues, declamations, etc., composing odes in their honor, dedicating literary works or conclusions; and if we can for the future, give dinners and greetings of divers modes.

12. It will be very convenient to take to our care the reconciliation of the great, in the quarrels and enmities that divide them; then by this method we can enter, little by little, into the acquaintance of their most intimate friends and secrets; and we can serve ourselves to that party which will be most in favor of that which we present.

13. If there should be some one at the service of a monarch or prince, and he were an enemy of our Society, it is necessary to procure well for ourselves better than for others, making him a friend, employing promises, favors, and advances, which shall be in proportion to the same monarch or prince.

14. No one shall recommend to a prince any one, nor make advances to any who have gone out from us, being outside of our Society, and in particular to those who voluntarily verified, for yet when they dissimulate they will always maintain an inextinguishable hatred to the Society.

In fine, each one must procure and search for methods to increase the affection and favor of princes, of the powerful, and of the magistrates of each population, that whenever occasion is offered to support, we can do much with efficacy and good faith, in benefiting ourselves, though contrary to their relations, allies and friends.


CHAPTER III.
HOW THE SOCIETY MUST BE CONDUCTED WITH THE GREAT AUTHORITIES IN THE STATE, AND IN CASE THEY ARE NOT RICH WE MUST LEND OURSELVES TO OTHERS.
1. The care consigned to us, that we must do all that is possible, for to conquer the great; but it is also necessary to gain their favor to combat our enemies.
2. It is very conducive to value their authority, prudence and counsels, and induce them to despise wealth, at the same time that we procure gain and employ those that can redeem the Society; tacitly valuing their names, for acquisition of temporal goods if they inspire sufficient confidence.

3. It is also necessary to employ the ascendant of the powerful, to temper the malevolence of the persons of a lower sphere and of the rabble against our Society.

4. It is necessary to utilize, whenever we can, the bishops, prelates and other superior ecclesiastics, according to the diversity of reason, and the inclination we manifest.

5. In some points it will be sufficient to obtain of the prelates and curates, that which it is possible to do, that their subjects respect the society; and that obstructing the exercise of its functions among those who have the greatest power, as in Germany, Poland, etc. It will be necessary to exhibit the most distinguished attentions for that, mediating its authority and that of the princes, monasteries, parishes, priorates, patronates, the foundations of the churches and the pious places, can come to our power. Because we can with more facility where the Catholics will be found mixed with heretics. It is necessary to make such prelates see the utility and merit that we have in all this, and that never will they have so much valuation from the priests, friars, and for the future from the faithful. If making these changes, it is necessary to publicly praise their zeal, although written, and to perpetuate the memory of their actions.

6. For this it is necessary to labor, to the end, that the prelates will place in the hands of us fathers, as confessors and counsellors; and if they aspire to more elevated positions in the Court of Rome, we must unite in their favor and aid their pretensions with all our forces, and by means of our influence.

7. We must be watchful that when the bishops are instituting principal colleges and parochial churches, that the faculties are taken from the Society, and placed in both vicarious establishments, with the charge of cures, and that the Superior of the Society to be, that all the government of these churches shall pertain to us, and that the parishioners shall be our subjects, of the method that all can be placed in them.

8. Where there are those of the academies who have been driven out from us, and are contrary; where the Catholics or the heretics obstruct our installation, we will compound with the prelates, and make ourselves the owners of the first cathedrals; for thus shall we make them to know the necessities of the Society.

9. Over all, we must be very certain to procure the protection and affection of the prelates of the Church, for the cases of beatification or canonization of ourselves; in whose subjects convened further, to obtain letters from the powerful and of the princes, that the decisions may be promptly attained in the Catholic Court.

10. If it shall be accounted that the prelates or magnates should send commissioned representatives, we must put forth all ardor, that no other priests, who are in dispute with us, shall be sent; for the reason, that they shall not communicate their animadversion, discrediting us in the cities and provinces we inhabit; and that if they pass by other provinces and cities, where there are colleges, they will be received with affection and kindness, and be so splendidly treated as a religious modesty will permit.


CHAPTER IV.
OF THAT WHICH WE MUST CHARGE THE PREACHERS AND CONFESSORS OF THE GREAT OF THE EARTH.
1. Those of us who may be directed to the princes and illustrious men, of the manner in which we must appear before them, with inclination unitedly "to the greater glory of God," obtaining -- with its austerity of conscience, that the same princes are persuaded of it; for this direction we must not travel in a principle to the exterior or political government, but gradually and imperceptibly.
2. Forasmuch there will be opportunity and conducive notices at repeated times, that the distribution of honors and dignities in the Republic is an act of justice; and that in a great manner it will be offending God, if the princes do not examine themselves and cease carrying their passions, protesting to the same with frequency and severity, that we do not desire to mix in the administration of the State; but when it shall become necessary to so express ourselves thus, to have your weight to fill the mission that is recommended. Directly that the sovereigns are well convinced of this, it will be very convenient to give an idea of the virtues that may be found to adorn those that are selected for the dignities and principal public changes; procuring then and recommending the true friends of the Society; notwithstanding, we must not make it openly for ourselves, but by means of our friends who have intimacy with the prince that it is not for us to talk him into the disposition of making them.

3. For this watchfulness our friends must instruct the confessors and preachers of the Society near the persons capable of discharging any duty, that over all, they must be generous to the Society; they must also keep their names, that they may insinuate with skill, and upon opportune occasions to princes, well for themselves or by means of others.

4. The preachers and confessors will always present themselves so that they must comport with the princes, lovable and affectionate, without ever shocking them in sermons, nor in particular conversations, presenting that which rejects all fear, and exhorting them in particular to faith, hope and justice.

5. Never receive gifts made to any one in particular, but that for the contrary; but picture the distress in which the Society or college may be found, as all are alike; having to be satisfied with assigning each one a room in the house, modestly furnished; and noticing that your garb is not over nice; and assist with promptness to the aid and counsel of the most miserable persons of the palace; but that you do not say it of them, but only those who have agreed to serve the powerful.

6. Whenever the death occurs of any one employed in the palace, we must take care of speaking with anticipation, that they fail in the nomination of a successor, in their affection for the Society; but giving no appearance to cause suspicion that it was the intent of usurping the government of the prince; for which, it must not be from us that it is said; take a part direct; but assembling of faithful or influential friends who may be found in a position of rousing the hate of one and another until they become inflamed.


CHAPTER V.
OF THE MODE OF CONDUCTING THE SOCIETY WITH RESPECT TO OTHER ECCLESIASTICS WHO HAVE THE SAME DUTIES AS OURSELVES IN THE CHURCH.
1. It is necessary to help with valor these persons, and manifest in their due time to the princes and lords that are always ours, and being constituted in power, that our Society contains essentially the perfection of all the other orders, with the exception of singing and manifesting an exterior of austerity in the mode of life and in dress; and that if in some points they excel the communities of the Society, this shines with greater splendor in the Church of God.
2. We must inquire into and note the defects of the other fathers (non-Jesuit priests), and when we find them, we must divulge them among our faithful friends, as condoling over them; we must show that such fathers do not discharge with certainty, that we do ourselves the functions, that some and others recommend.

3. It is necessary that the fathers of our Society oppose with all their power the other fathers who intend to found houses of education to instruct the youths among the populations where ours are found teaching with acceptation and approval; and it will be very convenient to indicate our projects to princes and magistrates, that such people will excite disturbances and commotions if they are not prohibited from teaching; and that in the last result, the damage will fall upon the educated, by being instructed by a bad method, without any necessity; posting them that the Society is sufficient to teach the youth. In case the fathers bear letters of the Pontificate, or recommendations from the Cardinals, we must work in opposition to them, making the princes and great men to point out to the Pope the merits of the Society and its intelligence for the pacific instruction of the youths, to which end, we must have and obtain certifications of the authorities upon our good conduct and sufficiency.

4. Having notwithstanding to form duties, our fathers in displaying singular proofs of our virtue and erudition, making them to exercise the alumni (graduates) in their studies in methods of functions, scholars of diversion, capable of drawing applause, making for supposition, these representations in the presence of the great magistrates and concurrence of other classes.


CHAPTER VI.
OF THE MODE OF ATTRACTING RICH WIDOWS.
1. We must elect effective fathers already advanced in years, of lively complexion and conversation, agreeable to visit these ladies, and whence they can promptly note in them appreciation or affection for our Society; making offerings of good works and the merits of the same; that, if they accept them, and succeed in having them frequent our temples, we must assign to them a confessor, who will be able of guiding them in the ways that are proper, in the state of widowhood, making the enumeration and praises of satisfaction that should accompany such a state; making them believe and yet with certainty that they who serve as such, is a merit for etemal life, being efficacious to relieve them from the pains of purgatory.
2. The same confessor will propose to them to make and adorn a little chapel or oratory in their own house, to confirm their religious exercises, because by this method we can shorten the communication, more easily hindering those who visit others; although if they have a particular chaplain, and will content to go to him to celebrate the mass, making opportune advertencies to her who confesses, to the effect and treating her as being left to be overpowered by said Chaplain.

3. We must endeavor skillfully but gently to cause them to change respectively to the Order and to the method of the House, and to conform as the circumstances of the person will permit, to whom they are directed, their propensities, their piety, and yet to the place and situation of the edifice.

4. We must not omit to have removed, little by little, the servants of the house that are not of the same mind with ourselves, proposing that they be replaced by those persons who are dependent on us, or who desire to be of the Society; for by this method we can be placed in the channel of communication of whatever passes in the family.

5. The constant watch of the confessor will have to be, that the widow shall be disposed to depend on him totally, representing that her advances in grace are necessarily bound to this submission.

6. We are to induce her to the frequency of the sacraments, and especially that of penitency, making her to give account of her deeper thoughts and intentions; inviting her to listen to her confessor, when he is to preach particular promising orations; recommending equally the recitation each day of the litanies and the examination of conscience.

7. It will be very necessary in the case of a general confession, to enter extensively into all of her inclinations; for that it will be to determine her, although she may be found in the hands of others.

8. Insist upon the advantages of widowhood, and the inconvenience of marriage; in particular that of a repeated one, and the dangers to which she will be exposed, relatively to her particular businesses into which we are desirous of penetrating.

9. We must cause her to talk of men whom she dislikes, and to see if she takes notice of anyone who is agreeable, and represent to her that he is a man of bad life; procuring by these means disgust of one and another, and repugnant to unite with anyone.

10. When the confessor has become convinced that she has decided to follow the life of widowhood, he must then proceed to counsel her to dedicate herself to a spiritual life, but not to a monastic one, whose lack of accommodations will show how they live; in a word, we must proceed to speak of the spiritual life of Pauline and of Eustace, &c. The confessor will conduct her at last, that having devoted the widow to chastity, to not less than for two or three years, she will then be made to renounce a second nuptial forever.

In this case she will be found to have discarded all sorts of relations with men, and even the diversions between her relatives and acquaintances, we must protest that she must unite more closely to God. With regard to the ecclesiastics who visit her, or to whom she goes out to visit, when we cannot keep her separate and apart from all others, we must labor that those with whom she treats shall be recommended by ourselves or by those who are devoted to us.

11. In this state, we must inspire her to give alms, under the direction, as she will suppose, or her spiritual father; then it is of great importance that they shall be employed with utility; more, being careful that there shall be discretion in counsel, causing her to see that inconsiderate alms are the frequent causes of many sins, or serve to torment at last, that they are not the fruit, nor the merit which produced them.


CHAPTER VII.
SYSTEM WHICH MUST BE EMPLOYED WITH WIDOWS AND METHODS OF DISPOSING OF THEIR PROPERTY.
1. It will be necessary to inspire her to continue to persevere in her devotion and the exercise of good works and of disposition, in not permitting a week to pass, to give away some part of her overplus, in honor of Jesus Christ, of the Holy Virgin and of the Saint she has chosen for her patron; giving this to the poor of the Society or for the ornamenting of its churches, until she has absolutely disposed of the first fruits of her property as in other times did the Egyptians.
2. When the widows, the more generally to practice their alms, must be given to know with perseverance, their liberality in favor of the Society; and they are to be assured that they are participants in all the merits of the same, and of the particular indulgences of the Provincial; and if they are persons of much consideration, of the General of the Order.

3. The widows who having made vows of chastity, it will be necessary for them to renew them twice per annum, conforming to the custom that we have established; but permitting them notwithstanding, that day some honest freedom from restraint by our fathers.

4. They must be frequently visited, treating them agreeably; referring them to spirited and diverting histories, conformable to the character and inclination of each one.

5. But that they may not abate, we must not use too much rigor with them in the confessional; that it may not be, that they by having empowered others of their benevolence, that we do not lose confidence of recovering their adhesion, having to proceed in all cases with great skill and caution, being aware of the inconstancy natural to woman.

6. It is necessary to have them do away with the habit of frequenting other churches, in particular those of convents; for which it is necessary to often remind them, that in our Order there are possessed many indulgences that are to be obtained only partially by all the other religious corporations.

7. To those who may be found in the case of the garb of mourning, they will be counselled to dress a little more agreeable, that they may at the same time, unite the aspect of mourning with that of adornment, to draw them away from the idea of being found directed by a man who has become a stranger to the world. Also with such, that they may not be very much endangered, or particularly exposed to volubility, we can concede to them, as if they maintained their consequence and liberality, for and with the society, that which drives ensuality away from them, being with moderation and without scandal.

8. We must manage that in the houses of the widows there shall be honorable young ladies, of rich and noble families; that little by little they become accustomed to our direction and mode of life; and that they are given a director elected and established by the confessor of the family, to be permanently and always subject to all the reprehensions and habits of the Society; and if any do not wish to submit to all, they must be sent to the houses of their fathers, or to those from which they were brought, accusing them directly of extravagance and of glaring and stained character.

9. The care of the health of the widows, and to proportion some amusement, it is not the least important that we should care for their salvation; and so, if they complain of some indisposition, we must prohibit the fast, the hair cloth girdle, and the discipline, without permitting them to go to church; further continue the direction, cautiously and secretly with such, that they may be examined in their houses; if they are given admission into the garden, and edifice of the college, with secrecy; and if they consent to converse and secretly entertain with those that they prefer.

10. To the end that we may obtain, that the widows employ their utmost obsequiousness to the Society, it is the duty to represent to them the perfection of the life of the holy, who have renounced the world, estranged themselves from their relations, and despising their fortunes, consecrating themselves to the service of the Supreme Being with entire resignation and content. It will be necessary to produce the same effect, that those who turn away to the Constitutions of the Society, and their relative examination to the abandonment of all things. We must cite examples of the widows who have reached holiness in a very short time; giving hopes of their being canonized, if their perseverance does not decay; and promising for their cases our influence with the Holy Father.

11. We must impress in their souls the persuasion that, if they desire to enjoy complete tranquility of conscience it will be necessary for them to follow without repugnance, without murmuring, nor tiring, the direction of the confessor, so in the spiritual, as in the eternal, that she may be found destined to the same God, by their guidance.

12. Also we must direct with opportunity, that the Lord does not desire that they should give alms, nor yet to fathers of an exemplary life, known and approved, without consulting beforehand with their confessor, and regulating the dictation of the same.

13. The confessors must take the greatest care, that the widows and their daughters of the confessional, do not go to see other fathers (i.e. non-Jesuit priests) under any pretext, nor with them. For this, we must praise our Society as the Order most illustrious of them all; of greater utility in the Church, and of greater authority with the Pope and with the princes; perfection in itself; then dismiss the dream of them, and menace them, that we can, and that we are no correspondents to them, we can say, that we do not consent to froth and do as among other monks who count in their convents many ignorant, stupid loungers who are indolent in regard to the other life, and intriguers in that to disorder, &c.

14. The confessors must propose and persuade the widows to assign ordinary pensions and other annual quotas to the colleges and houses of profession for their sustenance with especially to the professed house at Rome; and not forgetting to remind them of the restoration of the ornaments of the temples and replenishing of the wax, the wine, and other necessaries for the celebration of the mass.

15. If they do not make relinquishment of their property to the Society, it will be made manifest to them, on apparent occasion in particular, when they are found to be sick, or in danger of death; that there are many colleges to be founded; and that they may be excited with sweetness and disinterestedness, to make some disbursements as merit for God, and in that they can found his etemal glory.

16. In the same manner, we must proceed with regard to princes and other well doers, making them to see that such foundations will be made to perpetuate their memory in this world, and gain eternal happiness, and if some malevolent persons adduce the example of Jesus Christ, saying, that then he had no place to recline his head, the Society bearing his name should be poor in imitation of himself, we must make it known and imprint it in the imagination of those, and of all the world, that the Church has varied, and that in this day we have become a State; and we must show authority and grand measures against its enemies that are very powerful, or like that little stone prognosticated by the prophet, that, divided, came to be a great mountain. Inculcate constantly to the widows who dedicate their alms and ornaments to the temples, that the greater perfection is in disposing of the affection and earthly things, ceding their possession to Jesus Christ and his companions.

17. Being very little, that which we must promise to th
Jesuit wealth and holdings, continued
11 Jul 2006
17. Being very little, that which we must promise to the widows, who dedicate and educate their children for the world, we must apply some remedy to it.


CHAPTER VIII.
METHODS BY WHICH THE CHILDREN OF RICH WIDOWS MAY BE CAUSED TO EMBRACE THE RELIGIOUS STATE, OR OF DEVOTION.
1. To secure our object, we must create the custom, that the mothers treat them severely, and show to them, that we are in love with them. Coming to induce the mothers to do away with their tastes, from the most tender age, and regarding, restraining, &c., &c., the children especially; prohibiting decorations and adornments when they enter upon competent age; that they are inspired in the vocation for the cloister, promising them an endowment of consideration, if they embrace a similar state; representing to them the insipidity that is brought with matrimony, and the disgust that has been experienced in it; signifying to them the weight they would sit under, for not having maintained in the celibate. Lastly, coming to direct in the conclusions arrived at by the daughters of the widows, so fastidious of living with their mothers, that their feet will be directed to enter into a convent.
2. We must make ourselves intimate with the sons of the widows, and if for them an object or the Society, and cause them to penetrate the intent of our colleges, making them to see things that can call their attention by whatever mode, such as gardens, vineyards, country houses, and the farm houses where the masters go to recreate; talk to them of the voyages the Jesuits have made to different countries, of their treating with princes, and of much that can capture the young; cause them to note the cleanliness of the refectory, the commodiousness of the lodges, the agreeable conversation we have among ourselves, the suavity of our rule, and that we have all for the object of the greater glory of God; show to them the preeminence of our Order over all the others, taking care that the conversations we have shall be diverting to pass to that of piety.

3. At proposing to them the religious state, have care of doing so, as if by revelation; and in general, insinuating directly with sagacity, the advantage and sweetness of our institute above all others; and in conversation cause them to understand the great sin that will be committed against the vocation of the Most High; in fine, induce them to make some spiritual exercises that they may be enlightened to the choice of this state.

4. We must do all that is possible that the masters and professors of the youth indicated shall be of the Society, to the end, of being always vigilant over these, and counsel them; but if they cannot be reduced, we must cause them to be deprived of some things, causing that their mothers shall manifest their censure and authority of the house, that they may be tired of that sort of life; and if, finally, we cannot obtain their will to enter the Society, we must labor; because we can remand them to other colleges of ours that are at a distance, that they may study, procuring impediment, that their mothers show endearment and affection, at the same time, continuing for our part, in drawing them to us by suavity of methods.


CHAPTER IX.
UPON THE AUGMENTING OF REVENUE IN THE COLLEGES.
1. We must do all that is possible, because we do not know if bound with the last vow of him, who is the claimant of an inheritance, meanwhile we do not know if it is confirmed, to not be had in the Society a younger brother, or of some other reason of much entity. Before all, that which we must procure, are the augmentations of the Society with rules to the ends agreed upon by the superiors, which must be conformable: for that the Church returns to its primitive splendor for the greater glory of God; of fate that all the clergy shall be found animated by a united spirit. To this end, we must publish by all methods, that the Society is composed in part of professors so poor, that are wanting of the most indispensable, to not be for the beneficence of the faithful; and that another part is of fathers also poor, although living upon the product of some household property; but not to be grievous to the public, in the midst of their studies, their ministry, as are other ordinary mendicants. The spiritual directors of princes, great men, accommodating widows, and of whom we have abundant hope, that they will be disposed at last to make gifts to the Society in exchange for spiritual and eternal things, that will be proportioned, the lands and temporalities which they possess; for the same, carrying always the idea, that we are not to lose the occasion of receiving always as much as may be offered. If promises and the fulfillment of them is retarded, they are to be remembered with precaution, dissimulating as much as we can the coveting of riches. When some confessor of personages or other people, will not be apt, or wants subtility, that in these subjects is indispensable, he will be retired with opportunity, although others may be placed anticipatedly; and if it be entirely necessary to the penitents, it will be made necessary to take out the destitute to distant colleges, representing that the Society has need for them there; because it being known that some young widows, having unexpectedly failed, the Society not having the legacy of very precious movables, having been careless by not accepting in due time. But to receive these things, we could not attend at the time, and only at the good will of the penitent.
2. To attract the prelates, canonicals and other rich ecclesiastics, it is necessary to employ certain arts, and in place procuring them to practice in our houses spiritual exercises, and gradually and energetically of the affection that we profess to divine things; so that they will be affectionate towards the Society and that they will soon offer pledges of their adhesion.

3. The confessors must not forget to ask with the greatest caution and on adequate occasions of those who confess, what are their names, families, relatives, friends, and properties, informing their successors who follow them, the state, intention in which they will be found, and the resolution which they have taken; that which they have not yet determined obtaining, having to form a plan for the future to the Society. When it is founded, whence directly there are hopes of utility; for it will not be convenient to ask all at once; they will be counseled to make their confession each week, to disembarrass the conscience much before, or to the title of penitence. They will be caused to inform the confessor with repetition, of that which at one time they have not given sufficient light; and if they have been successful by this means, she will come, being a woman, to make confession with frequency, and visit our church; and being a man, he will be invited to our houses and we are to make him familiar with ourselves.

4. That which is said in regard to widows, must have equal application to the merchants and neighbors of all classes, as being rich and married, but without children, of that plan by which the Society can arrive to be their heirs, if we put in play the measures that we may indicate; but over all, it will be well to have present, as said, near the rich devotees that treat with us, and of whom the vulgar can murmur, when more, if they are of a class not very elevated.

5. Procuring for the rectors of the colleges entrance for all the ways of the houses, parks, groves, forests, lawns, arable lands, vineyards, olive orchards, hunting grounds, and whatever species of inheritances which they meet with in the end of their rectory; if their owners pertain to the nobility, to the clergy, or are negotiators, particulars, or religious communities, inquiring the revenues of each one, their loads and what they pay for them. All these dates or notices they are to seek for with great skill and to a fixed point, energetically yet from the confessional, then of the relations of friendship; or of the accidental conversations; and the confessor meets with a penitent of possibles, he will be placed in knowledge of the rector, obtaining by all methods the one conserved.

6. The essential point to build upon, is the following: that we must so manage, that in the ends we gain the will and affections of our penitents, and other persons with whom we treat, accommodating ourselves to their inclinations if they are conducive. The Provincials will take care to direct some of us to points, in which reside the nobility and the powerful; and if the Provincials do not act with opportunity, the rectors must notice with anticipation, the crops (the field of operations) that are there, which we go to examine.

7. When we receive the sons of strong houses in the Society, they must show whether they will be easy to acquire the contracts and titles of possession; and if so they were to enter of themselves, of which they may be caused to cede some of their property to the college, or the usufruct (profit) or for rent, or in other form, or if they can come for a time into the Society, the gain of which may be very much of an object, to give a special understanding to the great and powerful, the narrowness in which we live, and the debts that are pressing us.

8. When the widows, or our married devoted women, do not have more than daughters, we must persuade them to the same life of devotion, or to that of the cloister; but that except the endowment that they may give, they can enter their property in the Society gently; but when they have husbands, those that would object to the Society, they will be catechized; and others who desire to enter as religiouses in other Orders, with the promise of some reduced amount. When there may be an only son, he must be attracted at all cost, inculcating the vocation as made by Jesus Christ; causing him to be entirely disembarrassed from the fear of its fathers, and persuading him to make a sacrifice very acceptable to the Almighty, that he must withdraw to His authority, abandon the paternal house and enter in the Society; the which, if he so succeeds, after having given part to the General, he will be sent to a distant novitiate; but if they have daughters, they will primarily dispose the daughters for a religious life; and they will be caused to enter into some monastery, and afterwards be received as daughters in the Society, with the succession of its properties.

9. The Superiors will place in the channel of the circumstances, the confessors of these widows and married people, that they on all future occasions may act for the benefit of the Society; and when by means of one, they cannot take our part he will be replaced with another; and if it is made necessary, he will be sent to great distances, of a manner that he cannot follow understandingly with these families.

10. If we succeed in convincing the widows and devoted persons, who aspire with fervor to a perfect life, and that the better means to obtain it is by ceding all their properties to the Society, supporting by their revenues, that they will be religiously administered until their death, conforming to the degree of necessity in which they may be found, and the just reason that may be employed for their persuasion is, that by this mode, they can be exclusively dedicated to God; without attentions and molestations, which would perplex them, and that it is the only road to reach the highest degree of perfection.

11. The Superiors craving the confidence of the rich, who are attached to the Society, delivering receipts of its proper hand writing whose payment afterwards will differ; not forgetting to often visit those who loan, to exhort them above all in their infirmities of consideration, as to whom will devolve the papers of the debt; because it is not so to be found mention of the Society in their testament; and by this course we must acquire properties, without giving cause for us to be hated by the heirs.

12. We must also in a grand manner ask for a loan, with payment of annual interest, and employ the same capital in other speculation to produce greater revenues to the Society; for at such a time, succeeding to move them with compassion to that which they will lend to us, we will not lose the interest in the testament of donation, when they see that they found colleges and churches.

13. The Society can report the utilities of commerce, and value the name of the merchant of credit, whose friendship we may possess.

14. Among the peoples where our fathers reside, we must have physicians faithful to the Society, whom we can especially recommend to the sick, and to paint under an aspect very superior to that of other religious orders, and secure direction that we shall be called to assist the powerful, particularly in the hour of death.

15. That the confessors shall visit with assiduity the sick, particularly those who are in danger, and to honestly eliminate the other fathers, which the superiors will procure, when the confessor sees that he is obliged to remove the other from the suffering, to replace and maintain the sick in his good intentions. Meanwhile we must inculcate as much as we can with prudence, the fear of hell, &c., &c., or when, the lesser ones of purgatory; demonstrating that as water will put out fire, so will the same alms blot out the sin; and that we cannot employ the alms better, than in the maintaining and subsidizing of the persons, who, by their vocation, have made profession of caring for the salvation of their neighbor; that in this manner the sick can be made to participate in their merits, and find satisfaction for their own sins; placing before them that charity covereth a multitude of sins; and that also, we can describe that charity, is as a nuptial vestment, without which, no one can be admitted to the heavenly table. in fine it will be necessary to move them to the citations of the scriptures, and of the holy fathers, that according to the capacity of the sick, we can judge what is most efficacious to move them.

16. We must teach the women, that they must complain of the vices of their husbands, and the disturbances which they occasion, that they can rob them in secret of some amounts of money, to offer to God, in expiation of the sins of their husbands, and to obtain their pardon.


CHAPTER X.
OF THE PARTICULAR RIGOR OF DISCIPLINE IN THE SOCIETY.
1. If there shall be anyone dismissed under any protest, as an enemy of the Society, whatever may be his condition, or age; all those who have been moved to become the devotees of our churches; or of visiting ourselves; or who having been made to take the alms on the way to other churches; or who having been found to give to other fathers; or who having dissuaded any rich man, and well intentioned towards our Society, or giving anything; or in the time in which he can dispose of his properties, having shown great affection for his relations with this Society; because it is a great proof of a mortified disposition; and we conclude that the professions are entirely mortified; or also, that he having scattered all the alms of the penitents, or of the friends of the Society, in favor of his poor relations. Furthermore, that he may not complain afterwards of the cause of his expulsion, it will be necessary to thrust him from us directly; but we can prohibit him from hearing confessions, which will mortify him, and vex him by imposing upon him most vile offices, obliging him each day to do things that are the most repugnant; he will be removed from the highest studies and honorable employments; he will be reprimanded in the chapters by public censures; he will be excluded from the recreations and prohibited from all conversation with strangers; he will be deprived of his vestments and the uses of other things when they are not indispensable, until he begins to murmur and becomes impatient; then he can be expelled as a shameful person, to give a bad example to others; and if it is necessary to give account to his relatives, or to the prelates of the Church, of the reason for which he has been thrust out, it will be sufficient to say that he does not possess the spirit of the Society.
2. Furthermore, having also expelled all those who may have scrupled to acquire properties for the Society, we must direct, that they are too much addicted to their own judgment. If we desire to give reason of their conduct to the Provincials, it is necessary not to give them a hearing; but call for the rule, that they are obligated to a blind obedience.

3. It will be necessary to note, whence the beginning and whence their youth, those who have great affection for the Society; and those which we recognize their affection until the furthest orders, or until their relatives, or until the poor shall be necessarily disposed, little by little, as carefully said, to go out; then they are useless.


CHAPTER XI.
HOW WE MUST CONDUCT OURSELVES UNITEDLY AGAINST THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN EXPELLED FROM THE SOCIETY.
1. As those whom we have expelled, when knowing little or something of the secrets, the most times are noxious to the Society for the same, it shall be necessary to obviate their efforts by the following method, before thrusting them out; it will be necessary to obligate them to promise, by writing, and under oath, that they will never by writing or speaking, do anything which may be prejudicial to the Society; and it will be good that the Superiors guard a point of their evil inclinations, of their defects and of their vices; that they are the same, having to manifest in the discharge of their duties, following the custom of the Society, for that, if it should be necessary, this point can serve near the great, and the prelates to hinder their advancement.
2. Constant notice must be given to an the colleges of their having been expelled; and we must exaggerate the general motives of their expulsion; as the little mortification of their spirit; their disobedience; their little love for spiritual exercises; their self love, &c., &c. Afterwards, we must admonish them, that they must not have any correspondence with them; and they must speak of them as strangers; that the language of all shall be uniform, and that it may be told everywhere, that the Society never expels any one without very grave causes, and that as the sea casts up dead bodies, &c., &c. We must insinuate with caution, similar reasons to these, causing them to be abhorred by the people, that for their expulsion it may appear plausible.

3. In the domestic exhortations, it will be necessary to persuade people that they have been turned out as unquiet persons; that they continue to beg each moment to enter anew into the Society; and it will be good to exaggerate the misfortunes of those who have perished miserably, after having separated from the Society.

4. It will also be opportune to send forth the accusations, that they have gone out from the Society, which we can formulate by means of grave persons, who will everywhere repeat that the Society never expels any one but for grave causes; and that they never part with their healthy members; the which they can confirm by their zeal, and show in general for the salvation of the souls of them that do not pertain to them; and how much greater will it not be for the salvation of their own.

5. Afterwards, the Society must prepare and attract by all classes of benefits, the magnates, or prelates, with whom those who have been expelled begin to enjoy some authority and credit. It will be necessary to show that the common good of an Order so celebrated as useful in the Church, must be of more consideration, than that if a particular one who has been cast out. If an this affliction preserves some affection for those expelled, it will be good to indicate the reasons which have caused their expulsion; and yet exaggerate the causes the more that they were not very true; with such they can draw their conclusions as to the probable consequences.

6. Of all modes, it will be necessary that they particularly have abandoned the Society by their own free will; not being promoted to a single employment or dignity in the Church; that they would not submit themselves and much that pertains to the Society; and that all the world should withdraw from them that desire to depend on them.

7. Procuring soon, that they are removed from the exercise of the functions celebrated in the Church, such as the sermons, confessions, publication of books, &c., &c., so that they do not win the love and applause of the people. For this, we must come to inquire diligently upon their life and their habits; upon their occupations, &c., &c., penetrate into their intentions, for the which, we must have particular correspondence with some of the family in whose house they live, of those who have been expelled. In surprising something reprehensible in them or worthy of censure, which is to be divulged by people of medium quality; giving in following the steps conducive to reach the hearing of the great, and the prelates, who favor then, that they may be caused to fear that the infamy will relapse upon themselves. If they do nothing that merits reprehension, and conduct themselves well, we must curtail them by subtle propositions and captious phrases, their virtues and meritorious actions, causing that the idea that has been formed of them, and the faith that is had in them, may little by little be made to disappear; this is of great interest for the Society, that those whom we repel, and more principally those who by their own will abandon us, shall be sunk in obscurity and oblivion.

8. We must divulge without ceasing the disgraces and sinister accidents that they bring upon them, notwithstanding the faithful, who entreat for them in their prayers, that they may not believe that we work from impulses of passion. In our houses we must exaggerate by every method these calamities, that they may serve to hinder others.


CHAPTER XII.
WHO MAY COME THAT THEY MAY BE SUSTAINED AND PRESERVED IN THE SOCIETY.
1. The first place in the Society pertains to the good operators; that is to say, those who cannot procure less for the temporal than for the spiritual good of the Society; such as the confessors of princes, of the powerful, of the widows, of the rich pious women, the preachers and the professors who know all these secrets.
2. Those who have already failed in strength or advanced in years; conforming to the use they have made of their talents in and for the temporal good of the Society; of the manner which has attended them in days that are passed; and further, are yet convenient instruments to give part to the Superiors of the ordinary defects which are to be noted in ourselves, for they are always in the house.

3. We must never expel but in case of extreme necessity, for fear of the Society acquiring a bad reputation.

4. Furthermore, it will be necessary to favor those who excel by their talent, their nobleness and their fortune; particularly if they have powerful friends attached to the Society; and if they themselves have for it a sincere appreciation, as we have already said before. They must be sent to Rome, or to the universities of greater reputation to study there; or in case of having studied in some province, it will be very convenient that the professors attend to them with special care and affection. Meanwhile, they not having conveyed their property to the Society, we must not refuse them anything; for after confirming the cession, they will be disappointed as the others, notwithstanding guarding some consideration for the past.

5. Having also especial consideration on the part of the Superiors, for those that have brought to the Society, a young notable, placed so that they are given to know the affection made to it; but if they have not professed, it is necessary to take care of not having too much indulgence with them, for fear that they may return at another time, to carry away those whom they have brought to the Society.


CHAPTER XIII.
OF THE YOUTH WHO MAY BE ELECTED TO BE ADMITTED INTO THE SOCIETY, AND OF THE MODE OF RETAINING THEM.
1. It is necessary that much prudence shall be exercised, respecting the election of the Youth; having to be sprightly, noble, well liked, or at the least excellent in some of these qualities.
2. To attract them with greater facility to our institute, it is necessary in the meanwhile, to study that the rectors and professors of colleges shall exhibit an especial affection; and outside the time of the classes, to make them comprehend how great is God, and that some one should consecrate to his service all that he possesses; and particularly if he is in the Society of his Son.

3. Whenever the opportunity may arrive, conducive in the college and in the garden, and yet at times to the country houses, that in the company of ourselves, during the recreations, that we may familiarize with them, little by little, being careful, notwithstanding, that the familiarity does not engender disgust.

4. We cannot consent that we shall punish them, nor oblige them to assemble at their tasks among those who are the most educated.

5. We must congratulate them with gifts and privileges conforming to their age and encouraging above all others with moral discourses.

6. We must inculcate them, that it is for one divine disposition, that they are favorites among so many who frequent the same college.

7. On other occasions, especially in the exhortations, we must aim to terrify them with menaces of the eternal condemnation, if they refuse the divine vocation.

8. Meanwhile frequently expressing the anxiety to enter the Society, we must always defer their admission, that they may remain constant; but if for these, they are undecided, then we must encourage them incessantly by other methods.

9. If we admonish effectively, that none of their friends, nor yet the fathers, nor the mothers discover their vocation before being admitted; because then, if then, they come to the temptation of withdrawing; so many as the Society desires to give full liberty of doing that which may be the most convenient; and in case of succeeding to conquer the temptation, we must never lose occasions to make them recover spirit; remembering that which we have said, always that this will succeed during the time of the novitiate, or after having made their simple vows.

10. With respect to the sons of the great, nobles, and senators, as it is supremely difficult to attract them, meanwhile living with their fathers, who are having them educated to the end, that they may succeed in their destinies, we must persuade, vigorously, of the better influences of friends that are persons of the same Society; that they are ordered to other provinces, or to distant universities in which there are our teachers; careful to remit to the respective professors the necessary instructions, appropriate to their quality and condition, that they may gain their friendship for the Society with greater facility and certainty.

11. When having arrived at a more advanced age, they will be induced to practice some spiritual exercises, that they may have so good an exit in Germany and Poland.

12. We must console them in their sadness and afflictions, according to the quality and dispositions of each one, making use of private reprimands and exhortations appropriate to the bad use of riches; inculcating upon them that they should depreciate the felicity of a vocation, menacing them with the pains of hell for the things they do.

13. It will be necessary to make patent to the fathers and the mothers, that they may condescend more easily to the desire of their sons of entering the Society, the excellence of its institute in comparison with those of other orders; the sanctity and the science of our fathers; its reputation in all the world; the honor and distinctions of the different great and small. We must make enumeration of the princes and the magnates, that, with great content, have lived until their death, and yet living in the Society. We must show how agreeable it is to God, that the youth consecrate themselves to Him, particularly in the Society of his Son: and what thing is there so sublime as that of a man carrying the yoke of the Lord from his youth. That if they oppose any objections because of their extreme youth, then we must present the facility of our institute, the which not having anything to molest, with the exception of the three vows, and that which is most notable, that we do not have any obligatory rule, nor yet under penalty of venial sin.


CHAPTER XIV.
UPON RESERVED CASES AND MOTIVES THAT NECESSITATE EXPULSION FROM THE SOCIETY.
1. To most of the cases expressed in the Constitutions, and of which only the Superior or the ordinary confessor, with permission of this, can absolve them, where there is sodomy, unnatural crime, formication, adultery, of the unchaste touch of a man, or of a woman; also if under the pretext of Zeal, or whatever motive, they have done some grave thing against the Society; against its honors and its gains; these will be just causes for reason of the expulsion of the guilty.
2. If anyone confesses in the confessional of having committed some similar act, he will not be promised absolution, until he has promised to reveal to the Superior, outside of the confessional, the same or by his confessor. The Superior will operate the better for it, in the general interests of the Society; further, if there is founded hope of the careful hiding of the crime, it will be necessary to impose upon the guilty a convenient punishment; if otherwise he can be expelled much before. With all the care that is possible, the confessor will give the penitent to understand that he runs the danger of being expelled.

3. If any one of our confessors, having heard a strange person say, that he had committed a shameful thing with one of the Society, he will not absolve such a person, without his having said, outside of his confession, the name of the one with whom he has sinned; and if he so says, he will be made to swear that he will not divulge the same, without the consent of the Society.

4. If two of ourselves have sinned carnally, he who first avows it will be retained in the Society; and the other will be expelled; but he who remains permanent, will be after such mortification and bad treatment, of sorrow, and by his impatience, and if we have occasion for his expulsion, it will be necessary for the future of it that it be done directly.

5. The Society being a noble corporation and preeminent in the Church, it can dismiss those that will not be apt for the execution of our object, although giving satisfaction in the beginning; and the opportunity does not delay in presenting itself; if it procures continuous maltreatment; and if he is obliged to do contrary to his inclination; if they are gathered under the orders of gloomy Superiors; if he is separated from his studies and from the honorable functions, &c., &c., until be gets to murmuring.

6. In no manner must we retain in the Society, those that openly reveal against their Superiors, or that will complain publicly, or reservedly, of their companions, or particularly if they make them to strangers; nor to those who are among ourselves, or among persons who are on the outside, censure the conduct of the Society in regard to the acquisition or administration of temporal properties, or whatever acts of the same; for example, of crushing or oppressing many of those whom we do not wish well, or that they the same having been expelled, &c., &c. Nor yet those, that in conversation, who tolerate, or defend the Venetians, the French and others, that have driven the Society away from the territories, or that have occasioned great prejudices.

7. Before the expulsion of any we must vex and harass them in the extreme; depriving them of the functions that they have been accustomed to discharge, dedicating them to others. Although they may do well, it will be necessary to censure them, and with this pretext, apply them to another thing. Imposing by a trifling fault that they have committed the most severe penalties, that they blush in public, until they have lost all patience; and at last will be expelled as pernicious to all, for which a future opportunity will present itself when they will think less.

8. When some one of the Society has a certain hope of obtaining a bishopric, or whatever other ecclesiastical dignity, to most of the ordinary vows of the Society he will be obliged to take another; and that is, that he will always preserve good sentiments towards the Society; that he will always speak favorably of it; that he will not have a confessor that will not be to its bosom; that he will do nothing of entity without having heard the justice of the same. Because in consequence of not having observed this, the Cardinal Tolet the Society had obtained of the Holy See, that no swinish descendants of Jews or Mahometans were admitted, that he did not desire to take such vows; and that for celebrity that is out, he was expelled as a firm enemy of the Society.


CHAPTER XV.
HOW THE SOCIETY MUST BE CONDUCTED WITH THE MONKS AND NUNS.
1. The confessors and preachers must guard well against offending the nuns and occasioning temptations contrary to their vocation; but on the contrary, having conciliated the love of the Lady Superiors, that we obtain to hear, when less, their extraordinary confessions, and that it is predicted that we may hope soon to receive some gratitude from them; because the abbesses, principally the rich and noble, can be of much utility to the Society, by themselves, and by their relatives and friends; of the manner with which we treat with them and influence of the principal monasteries, the Society will little by little arrive to obtain the knowledge of all the corporation and increase its friendship.
2. It will be necessary, notwithstanding, to prohibit our nuns from frequenting the monasteries of women, for fear that their mode of life may be more agreeable, and that the Society will see itself frustrated in the hopes of possessing all their properties. We must induce them to take the vow of chastity and obedience, at the hands of their confessors; and to show them that this mode of life will conform with the uses of the Primitive Church, placed as a light to shine in the house, and that it cannot be hidden under a measure, without the edification of their neighbor, and without fruit for the souls; furthermore, that in imitation of the widows of the Gospel, doing well by giving themselves to Jesus Christ and to his Society. If they were to know how evil it can possibly be, of the life of the cloisters; but these instructions must be given under the seal of inviolable secrecy that they do not come to the ears of the monks.


CHAPTER XVI.
HOW WE MUST MAKE PROFESSION OF DESPISING RICHES.
["How we must pretend to despise wealth."]
1. With the end of preventing the seculars from directing attention to our itching for riches, it will be useful to repel at times alms of little amount, by which we can allow them to do services for our Society; though we must accept the smallest amounts from people attached to us, for fear that we may be accused of avarice, if we only receive those that are most numerous.
2. We must refuse sepulture to persons of the lowest class in our churches, though they may have been very attached to our Society; for we do not believe that we must seek riches by the number of interments, and we must hold firmly the gains that we have made with the dead.

3. In regard to the widows and other persons who have left their properties to the Society, we must labor with resolution and greater vigor than with the others; things being equal, and not to be made apparent, that we favor some more than others, in consideration of their temporal properties. The same must be observed with those that pertain to the Society, after that they have made cession of their property; and if it be necessary to expel them from the Society, it must be done with discretion, to the end that they leave to the Society a part for the less of that which they have given, or that which they have bequeathed at the time of their death.


CHAPTER XVII.
METHODS TO EXALT THE COMPANY.
1. Treating principally all, though in things of little consequence, we must have the same opinion, or at least exterior dignity; for by this manner we may augment and strengthen the Society more and more; to overthrow the barrier we have overcome in the business of the world.
2. Thus strengthening all, it will shine by its wisdom and good example, that we shall excel all the other fathers, and particularly the pastors, &c., &c., until the people desire us to all. Publicly divulging that the pastors do not need to possess so much knowledge; with such they can discharge well their duties, stating that they can assist them with the counsels of the Society; that for this motive they can dedicate themselves to all classes of studies.

3. We must inculcate this doctrine with kings and princes, THAT THE CATHOLIC FAITH CANNOT SUBSIST IN THE PRESENT STATE, WITHOUT POLITICS; but that in this, it is necessary to proceed with much certainty. Of this mode, we must share the affection of the great, and BE ADMITTED TO THE MOST SECRET COUNSELS.

4. We must entertain their good will, by writing from all parts interesting facts and notices.

5. It will be no little advantage that will result, by secretly and prudently fomenting dissensions between the great, ruining or augmenting their power. But if we perceive some appearance of reconciliation between them, then we of the Society will treat and act as pacificators; that it shall not be that any others shall anticipate to obtain it.

6. As much to the magnates as to the people, we must persuade them by all possible means, that the Society has not been, but by especial Divine Providence, conforming to the prophecies of the Abbot Joachim, for to return and raise up the Church, humbled by the heretics.

7. Having acquired the favor of the great and of the bishops, it will be an entire necessity, of empowering the curates and prebendaries to more exactly reform the clergy, that in other times lived under certain rule with the bishops, and tending to perfection; also it will be necessary to inspire the abbeys and prefaces; the which it will not be difficult to obtain; calling attention to the indolence and stupidity of the monks as if they were cattle; because it will be very advantageous for the Church, if all the bishoprics were occupied by members of the Society; and yet, as if it was the same apostolic chair, particularly if the Pope should return as temporal prince of all the properties; for as much as it is very necessary to extend little by little, with much secrecy and skill, the temporalities of the Society; and not having any doubt that the world will enter the golden age, to enjoy a perfect universal peace, for following the divine benediction that will descend upon the Church.

8. But if we do not hope that we can obtain this, supposing that it is necessary that scandals shall come in the world, WE MUST BE CAREFUL TO CHANGE OUR POLITICS, CONFORMING TO THE TIMES, AND EXCITE THE PRINCES, FRIENDS OF OURS TO mutually make terrible wars THAT EVERYWHERE THE MEDIATION OF THE SOCIETY WILL BE IMPLORED; that we may be employed in the public reconciliation, for it will be the cause of the common good; and we shall be recompensed by the PRINCIPAL ECCLESIASTICAL DIGNITIES; and the BETTER BENEFICIARIES.

9. In fine, that the Society afterwards can yet count upon the favor and authority of the princes, procuring THAT THOSE WHO DO NOT LOVE US SHALL FEAR US.

Globalization for the Common Good – A Proposal

Proposal: to form a global network of concerned Catholics dedicated to ensuring that globalization serves the common good.


Background: though globalization offers many benefits, the evidence suggests that its current rules fail to advance development based on justice, solidarity and sustainability.


Goals: utilize Jesuit scholars to identify those specific instances where globalization endangers the common good. That will inform an effort to counter those ill effects by proposing locale-sensitive rule-making and place-specific improvements in business practices. A key thematic focus: how best to transform cross-border capital flows into a force that advances economic justice, social solidarity and environmental sustainability.


Process: identify an initial network of academic administrators in six Jesuit academic institutions worldwide. This “founding network” agrees to recruit interest in their local community -- via an initial round of correspondence to engage other networks-of-concern -- in the professions (law, economics, accountancy, finance), business and civic leaders, students, the arts, affinity groups, etc. Support outreach with on-site sessions devoted to education, discussion and brainstorming – aided by materials developed collaboratively on-line. Each of these six initial “teams” hosted by an academic institution with relevant faculty expertise (business, law, etc.). Founding networks then to identify academic counterparts in 18 other nations (i.e., three each), sharing “lessons learned.”


Institutionalization. Ongoing effectiveness requires that this effort be institutionalized so that these 24 networks-of-concern remain robust and engaged. The founding network agrees to oversee the crafting of core materials for a common curriculum, easing this subject-matter into the educational process, energized by the entry of new personnel (Ph.D. candidates, etc.). Participants recognize that attuning the practice of globalization to principles of the common good requires worldwide outreach, education and advocacy.


Background & Comment. For the first time in human history, a common ideology (neoclassical economics) circles the globe. While it has many advantages over earlier attempts to impose a global ideology (such as Marxism), the results remain far from optimal. The widening divide between rich and poor is one key shortcoming, along with the unsustainable impact of economic development on the natural world. The net worth of the world’s 200 richest people now exceeds the combined income of the world’s poorest 2.5 billion people. The biologically productive area required to produce the natural resources consumed and absorb the carbon dioxide emitted is now 30% larger than the area available worldwide. The common good requires results that are more just, sustainable and commonsensical. Change presents a challenge for educators worldwide.

Approximately 11,500 U.S. corporations have implemented ESOPs covering ten percent of the U.S. workforce, including United Airlines (55% ESOP), Polaroid (25%), and Cargill (17%). ESOPs hold $650 billion in assets.

www.sharedcapitalism.org JACKET COPY for DEMOCRACY AT RISK (APRIL 2000 RELEASE)


Not since the 1920s has the gap been so wide between the have-nots and the have-everythings. Yet even in a rough-and-tumble election year, the silence on this issue is deafening. Lulled into complacency by a buoyant stock market, neither political candidates nor business and financial leaders are willing to acknowledge that we’re coming perilously close to losing the most fundamental values upon which our society is based—democracy, free enterprise, and a sustainable environment.


In a global economy where the world’s 200 richest people own assets greater than the combined income of the world’s 2.5 billion poorest people, it should come as no surprise that someone has come forward with a populist vision for the twenty-first century. Jeff Gates has the wisdom to sound the alarm, the guts to expose superficial partisan rhetoric for what it is, and, most importantly, the foresight to outline a series of practical public- and private-sector reforms designed to get us back on track.


Drawing from his own experience on the front lines (as a pioneer of employee stock ownership legislation and a lifetime in national politics and corporate finance), and citing alarming statistics of the growing disparities in wealth and income, Gates paints a compelling picture of how political and business interests have long collaborated to concentrate power and influence. The effects are manifested in a variety of increasingly disturbing conditions that reflect a penchant for short-term returns over long-term solutions—from voter apathy to ecological devastation to an educational system in crisis.


At its core, however, Democracy at Risk, is a rallying cry for any and all who care about the future of America and the world, and who want to take an active role in seeing that future unfold. Carrying the standard of the colorful 1930s reformer, Huey Long, Gates gives populism a new-millennium twist, proposing initiatives that range from instituting “ownership impact reports” (that ensure legislative accountability) and creating a “capital commons user fee” (that directs funds to the developing world) to sweeping upgrades to our fiscal and monetary policies—all designed to create a more inclusive economic and political system that shares the wealth among all its participants.


At a time when the stakes have never been higher, Democracy at Risk is destined to stimulate debate in every camp. Its agenda is ambitious and its message upbeat—that we do have the means to protect our most cherished ideals, and that every individual can, should, and must exercise leadership to that end.


Jeff Gates, founder and president of the Gates Group and the nonprofit Shared Capitalism Institute (www.sharedcapitalism.org), is a lawyer, investment banker, political advisor, and a consultant to government, corporate and union leaders worldwide.


Advance Praise for Democracy at Risk


“Written with uncommon clarity and candor, Democracy at Risk should be read by everyone who is concerned with liberty and equitable distribution of power and wealth. The more prosperous and powerful you might be, the more important it is to pay attention to what Jeff Gates has to say.”


-- Dee Hock, Founder and CEO Emeritus, VISA; author, Birth of the Chaordic Age


“Democracy at Risk argues for widespread ownership of capital resources in an era of massive disparities of wealth that subordinate democracy to plutocracy. Gates is a practical man, which means he offers politically practical and financially feasible ways toward a broad-based prosperity around the world. His facts will enrage you into higher expectation levels for what a modern economy should look like and be for.”


—Ralph Nader


“Put [Democracy at Risk] in front of every student who’s studying economics, every politician and every financial journalist for their consideration….At the center of this book is the cry to hold on to what is silently slipping through our fingers—democracy.”


—Anita Roddick, OBE; founder, The Body Shop

“Tom Paine is back and he is not pleased. But he has done his homework. Democracy at Risk is not a book, it is a bible for a powerful populism that will arise after the latest Gilded Age is over. Read it and run, or read it and recover your sense of what it could mean to actually live in a democratic society.”


—Paul Hawken, author, Natural Capitalism, The Ecology of Commerce

“Democracy at Risk is a highly original, gutsy, carefully thought through work that offers practical alternatives for a new economics and politics—and in the process reclaims populism from demagogues who have used it to divert people from the core issues Jeff Gates so thoroughly documents. This is an important and timely book.”

—Riane Eisler, author, The Chalice & The Blade, Tomorrow’s Children, and Sacred Pleasure

“Democracy at Risk invites—no, compels—us to open our eyes to what seems to be an ominous contrast between the capitalism of today and the fundamental ideals of an inclusive democracy. It is, at the very least, a wake-up call—if you can speak of an exploding stick of dynamite as a wake-up call. Yet, the solutions offered leave us gratefully optimistic that a truly democratic capitalism is in fact attainable—but that there is not a moment to waste.”

—Jacob Needleman, author, Money and the Meaning of Life


“We all know that in the transition to the 21st century there are many paradigm shifts. Jeff Gates' book helps to understand the new direction.”


—Professor Klaus Schwab, Founder & President, World Economic Forum/Davos


“In this provocative study, Jeff Gates addresses a rich array of problems of fundamental human significance, and suggests approaches to them that should stimulate serious thought, and committed action, on the part of people who view the present world, and the possibilities for a better future, from many different perspectives.”

—Noam Chomsky, author; professor, Massachusetts Institute of Technology


“At a time when the need is great, Jeff Gates offers us a populist vision for the twentyh-first century.”

—Lawrence Goodwyn, author, Democratic Promise: The Populist Moment in America


“Jeff Gates is a new kind of populist. He makes some folks uncomfortable by wanting to correct a capitalism in which the wealth of the wealthiest 1% exceeds what 95% of Americans have to live on. But he also wants to make capitalism worth conserving—by making it more civilized and more democratic, by making owners of all those who contribute to its success. Democracy at Risk is a tough diagnosis, with a fresh and future-oriented prescription attached.”


—Harlan Cleveland, President, World Academy of Art and Science; former U.S. Ambassador to NATO; author, Birth of a New World, The Global Commons


“Jeff Gates is an insider who knows how wealth and the investment system really works -- and it fills him with rage. Beneath his righteous anger, there's a deep sadness for what has happened to our democracy and also the conviction that it doesn't have to be that way. This is populist thunder that enthralls and educates and also ought to mobilize us.”


-- William Greider, author, One World, Ready or Not: The Manic Logic of Global Capitalism


“With passion and precision, Jeff Gates reminds us that capitalism does not have to be an exclusive system. We make the rules! Here, from the man who helped bring us employee stock ownership is compelling commonsense for how we can make capitalism work for all of us by "ownerizing" it. Mind expanding. Hope inducing. And we need both!”


—Frances Moore Lappe, author, Diet for a Small Planet, Rediscovering America’s Values, coauthor, The Quickening of America


“Jeff Gates is a phenomenon. He is turning the economics searchlight on ownership and demanding to know why the morally unbearable maldistribution of wealth and income is taboo in classical and contemporary economics. Jeff has achieved this focus, in two books two years apart, to the profound benefit of economics and democracy. He comes straight from top-of-the-mark work on Capitol Hill for Russell Long and the Senate Finance Committee to the crisis for democracy in which we Americans are all now mired, whether we want to be or not. American democracy is in great danger, if it's not already over the cliff, and Jeff Gates is making his special heroic effort to help save it and free enterprise. Can it be done? I don't know.”


—Ronnie Dugger, founder, Alliance for Democracy; former editor, The Texas Observer; author, The Politician: The Life and Times of Lyndon Johnson; On Reagan: The Man and His Presidency


“Gives us hope that capitalism and humanism are not necessarily mutually exclusive.”


—Paul Krassner, editor, The Realist


“Meticulously documents the need for broadening capital ownership in the United States—not only for overall efficiency and social development—but to fully release the talents and motivations of all our citizens in growing a more prosperous, just and ecologically sustainable society.”


—Hazel Henderson, author, Beyond Globalization and Building a Win-Win World


“In the aftermath of the citizen uprising against the World Trade Organization in Seattle, the need to bring democracy to our economic systems is clearer than ever. Gates reminds us that without democracy in our financial world we can't really expect to have real democracy anywhere. Democracy at Risk puts forth series of bold and practical proposals to redesign democracy and capitalism to be things the earth and future generations can afford. After Seattle, I think the world is ready to listen.”


—David Brower, Founder and Chairman, Earth Island Institute; author, Let the Mountains Talk, Let the Rivers Run


“In Democracy at Risk, Jeff Gates has presented us with an urgent and passionate polemic in support of a renewed democracy based on broadly shared ownership and economic power. He calls for an immediate populist insurgency to bring about a democratic sharing of wealth and power, and a broadening of the criteria of success to include the host of environmental, educational, cultural, community, intergenerational and global concerns which have the potential to threaten, or to enhance, the future of our civilization and, indeed, of our planet.”

—Lynn R. Williams, president, United Steelworkers of America (retired)

Endorsements re The Ownership Solution (1998)


“Jeff Gates outlines a creative, yet credible strategy for empowering working people with a more vital interest in private enterprise. If capitalism can indeed have a human face, the reforms proposed in this provocative book merit careful consideration."

-- Coretta Scott King, founder, The King Center


“This book focuses on the central issues that have to be addressed if the 21st century is to transcend the simplistic dilemma of capitalism versus socialism and create a new, sustainable civilization.”

-- Mikhail Gorbachev


“In the book The Ownership Solution I found an original and promising proposal for the implementation of an appropriate ethic for capitalism in the next millennium."

-- Oscar Arias, 1987 Nobel Peace Laureate; former President of Costa Rica


"Long-term, sustainable development requires a balancing of economic, social, fiscal and environmental goals. In The Ownership Solution, Jeff Gates provides a thoughtful and thought-provoking approach to understanding these goals and how broad-based capital ownership can help to achieve them."

-- Bill Bradley (U.S. Senator, 1979-1997)


"Expansion of ownership and greater access to capital will both strengthen and spread democracy and market economies throughout the world. This is a compelling account of how to help bring it about."

-- Jack Kemp, former Republican vice presidential candidate


"The Ownership Solution succeeds brilliantly in showing how broad based personal ownership can strengthen communities and make global sustainable development possible."

-- Dick Gephardt, Democratic Leader of the U.S. House of Representatives


"Jeff Gates is that most unusual of individuals, the practical visionary."

-- Edward W. Kelley, Jr., Governor, U.S. Federal Reserve


“This book may save capitalism.”

-- Stephan Schmidheiny, founder, World Business Council for Sustainable Development


”A wonderfully different and original line of thought.”

-- John Kenneth Galbraith, Harvard University


"An ingenious and compelling look at the power inherent in widespread personal ownership. Engrossing, insightful and persuasive."

-- Gerald Greenwald, Chairman and CEO, United Airlines


"How do we close a growing gap between successful owners and investors and an increasingly anxious underclass? One way that would help - more participants in ownership!

-- Rodger J. Pannone, President of the Law Society, 1995-96 (UK)



"In The Ownership Solution, Jeff Gates does more than point the way to broadening the base of ownership in society. He may have put his finger on the possibility of a historical convergence. If capitalism can be prevented from concentrating ownership and wealth, social democrats will avoid the danger which they are pledged to fight as they pursue the imperative of social equity. Equally, if social equity can be achieved without frustrating entrepreneurship and undermining market forces, the conservatives will be assured of the preservation of those sources of economic energy which they are pledged to guard. Let's both get on with it!"

-- Michael Manley, Prime Minister of Jamaica (1972-80; 1988-92)

-- Jim Wright, Speaker of the U.S> House of Representatives (19887-1989)

“Ownership is the great neglected issue of contemporary left-wing politics. Jeff Gates has brought us the most serious effort to date to address that gap; his book will be enormously influential.”

-- Ian Hargreaves, editor, New Statesman (UK)


“This is a unique, unusual and untried proposal to solve a vexing problem in national and international economic development. It is worth some serious consideration.”

-- Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, President Emeritus, University of Notre Dame


"Around the world, the chasm between the haves and have-nots is growing. Can that threaten capitalism, peace and prosperity? Jeff Gates' solution for broadening ownership is the cutting edge, free market way to avoid that threat and improve lives."

-- Mary K. Bush, former Alternative Executive Director, IMF



With Globalization, Poverty is Optional


by Jeff Gates ©


Assets held by the world’s 200 wealthiest individuals total $1 trillion, for an average $5 billion each. After doubling since 1995, their total wealth equals the combined annual income of the world’s 2.5 billion poorest people. Meanwhile, 80 nations report incomes lower than a decade ago. Sixty countries have grown steadily poorer since 1980. Three billion people presently live on $2 or less per day while 1.3 billion get by on $1 or less.


With global population expanding 80 million each year, World Bank President Jim Wolfensohn cautions that, unless we address the “challenge of inclusion,” three decades hence we could have 5 billion people living on less than $2 per day. With 2 billion people presently malnourished, that suggests the human family may by then include 3.7 billion people who suffer that indignity, including 100 million living in industrialized nations. That’s a future the global community can choose to avoid.


The 3.5 Percent Solution

The UN calculates that $35 billion per year is sufficient to fund the minimum conditions required for the flowering of human potential worldwide: safe drinking water, adequate sanitation, sufficient nutrition, primary health care, basic education, and family planning for willing couples. Those essential building blocks for human decency could be financed with the proceeds from a 3.5 percent levy on the assets of the world’s 200 richest people, less than a typical value added tax. Three-quarters of those suffering from affluenza live in OECD countries; 60 reside in the U.S.


Rightly viewed, that levy would be seen as a “capital commons user fee.” Capital markets are a global commons, similar to a shared meadow in which everyone grazes their livestock. No one owns the pasture, yet everyone benefits from its use. Financial assets are rightly called “securities” because international law enforces the security of property rights – from which a markedly small portion of humanity pockets the bulk of the benefits. For instance, the 400 wealthiest Americans hold financial assets equivalent to one-eighth of the GDP of the world’s largest economy.


Those utilizing this commons realize real, substantial and tangible benefits. In addition to the risk-reducing benefits of diversification, the liquidity provided by capital markets raises the value of traded securities by roughly 35 percent when compared with untraded securities in comparable firms. A 3.5 percent “user fee” would recoup just 10 percent of the value that’s due solely to a financial feature the commons now offers freely.


It’s clear whose livestock are fattened up in globalization’s financial commons. The issue is straightforward: should those who benefit contribute to its upkeep? Earmarking the proceeds for human needs would underwrite stability by ensuring that the ongoing globalization of democracy means something more than the right to choose poverty. Enforcement would ensure that the well-to-do assume a responsibility to do more than simply drink their fill and thirst for more.


Freeloader Levy

The IMF reports that at least $4.5 trillion is hidden away in 1.5 million tax haven corporations worldwide, up from 200,000 since 1989. Estimates of such holdings range as high as $13.7 trillion. The World Bank documents that at least $150 billion has fled the former Soviet Union since the fall of the Berlin Wall, leaving one-third of Russians scraping by on $38 or less per month. Organized crime currently rakes in an estimated $1.5 trillion a year, rivaling transnational corporations as a global presence. For the wealthy, the corrupt and the well-connected, the payment of taxes is now optional.


Best estimates put tax haven holdings at $8 trillion. An annual “freeloader levy” of 3.5 percent would generate an additional $280 billion -- 165 times the UN’s development budget, or 93 times its peacekeeping budget, now raised pass-your-hat style. That’s also the bulk of the $300 billion per year that environmental experts at Cambridge and Sheffield Universities report would be required to “save the planet.”


Can it be done? Success depends on a global political maturity that remains elusive. The requisite financial transparency could be evoked with a combination of whistle-blower rewards and offers of political asylum for those who divulge the information required. Or the effort could be pursued by the private sector, funded by an alliance of foundations and entrepreneurs offering a combination of cash and stock options.


Should it be done? Eighty percent of humanity lives in developing countries. Ninety-five percent of the next generation’s children will be born to women living there. Seventy percent of those women live on $1 or less per day. Success may determine whether the legacy of globalization is decency or domination.

Ten Ways that Demopubs and Republicrats Redistribute Wealth


by Jeff Gates ©


1. From the poor to the rich, the worldwide embrace of neoliberal policies has quickened the pace of redistribution from bottom to top in the United States over the past two decades. Thus, for example, the wealth of the Forbes 400 richest Americans grew by an average $940 million each from 1997-1999 (an average increase in wealth of $1,287,671 per day) while over a recent 12-year period (1983-1995) the net worth of the bottom 40 percent of U.S. households plummeted 80 percent. The only principle governing today’s neoliberal-sanctioned financial practices: “Drink your fill and thirst for more.”


2. From future generations to the present – unsustainable production procedures have become the rule, largely due to the neoliberal-influenced, finance-driven insistence on maximizing net present value and the financial rewards that flow to those who internalize gains and externalize costs. That shareholder-value-maximizing model drives the commercial sector to embrace practices such that worldwide, as of 1996, the biologically productive areas needed to produce the natural resources consumed and absorb the carbon dioxide emitted was 30 percent larger than the area available.


3. From poor nations to rich nations. In addition to fast-widening income and wealth gaps between rich and poor nations, it’s now clear that gap has been paid for by a steady redistribution of the world’s natural wealth from poor to rich nations. In all three ecosystems suffering the worst declines (forests, freshwater and marine), the most severe damage has occurred in the southern temperate or tropical regions of the world. Thus, we must add to today’s fast-widening economic divide the fact that industrial nations (located mainly in northern temperate zones) are primarily responsible for the ongoing loss of natural wealth elsewhere in the world.


4. From the real to the abstract. The neoliberal perspective on progress suggests that the U.S. is enjoying two decades of unprecedented financial prosperity, yet practically every social and environmental indicator suggests that the world’s “richest” nation is experiencing a steady 20-year decline.


5. From public to private. The wealth-accumulating benefits of modern production practices are captured largely by a few while the costs are imposed on an unsuspecting public. For instance, we’ve now 75,000 manmade chemicals in use worldwide, all of which are heading somewhere. Where? Microbiologist Theo Colborn documents 500 measurable chemicals in our bodies that were not in anyone’s body before the 1920s, including a range of endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) associated with a litany of adverse health effects, including weakened immune systems, reproductive problems, metabolic maladies and functional deficits in intelligence, sexual function and behavior. Relying on trend data suggesting that almost half of U.S. males (and one-third of females) will contract a non-smoking-related cancer, Samuel Epstein, a physician specializing in cancer prevention, documents as the causal factor our non-optional exposure to carcinogenic elements, which also results in a particularly high incidence of cancer among children. As explained by Michael Lerner, president of Commonweal, a health and environmental research institute: “Before EDCs, we used to worry most about toxic chemicals’ increased cancer risk. The higher the dosage/exposure, the greater the cancer risk. The new research shows that EDCs have a wide range of serious effects beyond cancer; that they cause these effects at infinitely lower levels than are necessary to cause cancer; that these effects are fundamentally intergenerational (the health effects are in our children and grandchildren).”


6. From the community to the commercial. The neoliberal emphasis on productive efficiency makes the modern monopoly and the megastore appear as an appealing phenomenon though the devastating impact is clear - on wealth and income distribution, on communities and on democracy. In the U.S., for example, Wal-Mart alone, with its 3,983 outlets and $138 billion in 1999 sales, accounts for 6 percent of national retail spending (the Walton family has personal wealth exceeding $80 billion). The Home Depot and Lowe’s now account for one-quarter of nationwide hardware sales. Rite Aid, Walgreens, and CVS dominate what were once community pharmacies, with a combined 9,000 stores and $37 billion in revenues. Independent bookstores saw their market share plummet from 58 percent in 1972 to 17 percent in 1999, as Borders Books and Barnes & Noble surged to take 45 percent of the U.S. market. In the mid-1970s, fifty corporations accounted for 50 percent of U.S. media outlets. By the year 2000, the number was six. The same phenomenon swept through publishing in the late 1990s. Seven firms now account for three-quarters of U.S. trade book sales, down from fifty in 1993. According to research at the State University of Iowa, between 1983 and 1993 alone, Wal-Mart’s expansion caused the collapse of an estimated 7,326 businesses, mostly in the hardware, grocery, and clothing areas through “retail cannibalism,” devastating communities and wiping out an entire generation of sole proprietors, once a reliable source of civic leadership. The wave of cross-border megamergers in the late 1990s is fast concentrating economic power in megacorporations while democracy’s airwaves were converted into immense “conglomediates” at the risk of undermining an array of key values – diversity, economic self reliance, civic cohesion, etc. By 1998, the top ten companies in pesticides controlled 85 percent of a $31 billion market while the top ten companies in telecommunications controlled 86 percent of a $262 billion global market. Today’s anti-democratic results reflect the neoliberal logic of exalting price competition and finance-calibrated efficiency to the exclusion of all other values.


7. From Consumers to Cartels. Energy demand in California rose by 4% between 1999 and 2000 while wholesale electric prices rose 266% and the generators’ income went up an average 508%. In 2000, California spent $7 billion on energy; this year California faces energy expenditures of $70 billion.


8. From Insensitive to Insane. In 1995, the financial wealth of the top one percent of Americans was equaled the combined household financial wealth of the bottom 90 percent. By 1999, the financial wealth of the top one percent was equivalent to that of the bottom 95 percent. After monopolizing digital gateways to the New Economy, Microsoft’s Bill Gates is on track to be a trillionaire by March 2005 and a quadrillionaire (a million billion) by March 2020.


9. From the Living to the Dead. According to a recent poll by the American Museum of Natural History, 69% of biologists surveyed agree that the human species is the unique cause of the Sixth Great Extinction of Earth life, now well underway and far more rapid than even those caused by catastrophic natural disasters such as meteor impact. Biologically and ecologically speaking, we exhibit the unique evolutionary distinction of being a desert-making species. Not only do we produce deserts by removing vegetation (as in the rainforest), we’ve also mastered the art of extending deserts to places normally watered by rainforest-produced clouds, disrupting the planet’s climate-control system. Whereas the species has survived several Ice Ages, the Earth’s last hot age occurred long before humans, flooding continents and leaving only a few mountain peak islands in a world of water.


10. From Diverse Cultures to Monocultures. The dominance granted financial values is now reflected in the language of policy-making worldwide, such as the goal of ensuring a “level playing field” as an essential economic environment undeterred by the petty annoyances and disturbing distractions of democratic rule-making (AKA “Money is smarter than people.”). By granting not just deference but dominance that narrow bandwidth of values, the neoliberal version of globalization ensures the crowding out of cultural diversity by those financially dominant nations whose lawmakers choose that cramped range of value as their key value.

The Jesuit Oath Exposed

"Go ye, then, into all the world and take possession of all lands in the name of the Pope. He who will not accept him as the Vicar of Jesus and his Vice-Regent on earth, let him be accursed and exterminated."
Professor Arthur Noble
[The following is the text of the Jesuit Extreme Oath of Induction as recorded in the Journals of the 62nd Congress, 3rd Session, of the United States Congressional Record (House Calendar No. 397, Report No. 1523, 15 February, 1913, pp. 3215-3216), from which it was subsequently torn out. The Oath is also quoted by Charles Didier in his book Subterranean Rome (New York, 1843), translated from the French original. Dr. Alberto Rivera, who escaped from the Jesuit Order in 1967, confirms that the induction ceremony and the text of the Jesuit Oath which he took were identical to what we have cited below. – A. N.]
When a Jesuit of the minor rank is to be elevated to command, he is conducted into the Chapel of the Convent of the Order, where there are only three others present, the principal or Superior standing in front of the altar. On either side stands a monk, one of whom holds a banner of yellow and white, which are the Papal colours, and the other a black banner with a dagger and red cross above a skull and crossbones, with the word INRI, and below them the words IUSTUM NECAR REGES IMPIUS. The meaning of which is: It is just to exterminate or annihilate impious or heretical Kings, Governments, or Rulers.
Upon the floor is a red cross at which the postulant or candidate kneels. The Superior hands him a small black crucifix, which he takes in his left hand and presses to his heart, and the Superior at the same time presents to him a dagger, which he grasps by the blade and holds the point against his heart, the Superior still holding it by the hilt, and thus addresses the postulant:
(The Superior speaks:)
My son, heretofore you have been taught to act the dissembler: among Roman Catholics to be a Roman Catholic, and to be a spy even among your own brethren; to believe no man, to trust no man. Among the Reformers, to be a Reformer; among the Huguenots, to be a Huguenot; among the Calvinists, to be a Calvinist; among other Protestants, generally to be a Protestant; and obtaining their confidence, to seek even to preach from their pulpits, and to denounce with all the vehemence in your nature our Holy Religion and the Pope; and even to descend so low as to become a Jew among Jews, that you might be enabled to gather together all information for the benefit of your Order as a faithful soldier of the Pope. You have been taught to plant insidiously the seeds of jealousy and hatred between communities, provinces, states that were at peace, and to incite them to deeds of blood, involving them in war with each other, and to create revolutions and civil wars in countries that were independent and prosperous, cultivating the arts and the sciences and enjoying the blessings of peace; to take sides with the combatants and to act secretly with your brother Jesuit, who might be engaged on the other side, but openly opposed to that with which you might be connected, only that the Church might be the gainer in the end, in the conditions fixed in the treaties for peace and that the end justifies the means. You have been taught your duty as a spy, to gather all statistics, facts and information in your power from every source; to ingratiate yourself into the confidence of the family circle of Protestants and heretics of every class and character, as well as that of the merchant, the banker, the lawyer, among the schools and universities, in parliaments and legislatures, and the judiciaries and councils of state, and to be all things to all men, for the Pope's sake, whose servants we are unto death. You have received all your instructions heretofore as a novice, a neophyte, and have served as co-adjurer, confessor and priest, but you have not yet been invested with all that is necessary to command in the Army of Loyola in the service of the Pope. You must serve the proper time as the instrument and executioner as directed by your superiors; for none can command here who has not consecrated his labours with the blood of the heretic; for "without the shedding of blood no man can be saved". Therefore, to fit yourself for your work and make your own salvation sure, you will, in addition to your former oath of obedience to your order and allegiance to the Pope, repeat after me:
(Text of the Oath:)
I_______________ , now in the presence of Almighty God, the blessed Virgin Mary, the blessed St. John the Baptist, the Holy Apostles, St. Peter and St. Paul, and all the saints, sacred host of Heaven, and to you, my Ghostly Father, the superior general of the Society of Jesus, founded by St. Ignatius Loyola, in the pontification of Paul the Third, and continued to the present, do by the womb of the Virgin, the matrix of God, and the rod of Jesus Christ, declare and swear that His Holiness, the Pope, is Christ's Vice-Regent and is the true and only head of the Catholic or Universal Church throughout the earth; and that by the virtue of the keys of binding and loosing given to His Holiness by my Saviour, Jesus Christ, he hath power to depose heretical Kings, Princes, States, Commonwealths, and Governments, and they may be safely destroyed. Therefore to the utmost of my power I will defend this doctrine and His Holiness's right and custom against all usurpers of the heretical or Protestant authority whatever, especially the Lutheran Church of Germany, Holland, Denmark, Sweden and Norway, and the now pretended authority and Churches of England and Scotland, and the branches of same now established in Ireland and on the continent of America and elsewhere and all adherents in regard that they may be usurped and heretical, opposing the sacred Mother Church of Rome. I do now denounce and disown any allegiance as due to any heretical king, prince or State, named Protestant or Liberal, or obedience to any of their laws, magistrates or officers. I do further declare the doctrine of the Churches of England and Scotland of the Calvinists, Huguenots, and others of the name of Protestants or Masons to be damnable, and they themselves to be damned who will not forsake the same. I do further declare that I will help, assist, and advise all or any of His Holiness's agents, in any place where I should be, in Switzerland, Germany, Holland, Ireland or America, or in any other kingdom or territory I shall come to, and do my utmost to extirpate the heretical Protestant or Masonic doctrines and to destroy all their pretended powers, legal or otherwise. I do further promise and declare that, notwithstanding, I am dispensed with to assume any religion heretical for the propagation of the Mother Church's interest; to keep secret and private all her agents' counsels from time to time, as they entrust me, and not to divulge, directly or indirectly, by word, writing or circumstances whatever; but to execute all that should be proposed, given in charge, or discovered unto me by you, my Ghostly Father, or any of this sacred order. I do further promise and declare that I will have no opinion or will of my own or any mental reservation whatever, even as a corpse or cadaver (perinde ac cadaver), but will unhesitatingly obey each and every command that I may receive from my superiors in the militia of the Pope and of Jesus Christ. That I will go to any part of the world whithersoever I may be sent, to the frozen regions north, jungles of India, to the centres of civilisation of Europe, or to the wild haunts of the barbarous savages of America without murmuring or repining, and will be submissive in all things, whatsoever is communicated to me. I do further promise and declare that I will, when opportunity presents, make and wage relentless war, secretly and openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Masons, as I am directed to do, to extirpate them from the face of the whole earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex nor condition, and that will hang, burn, waste, boil, flay, strangle, and bury alive these infamous heretics; rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women, and crush their infants' heads against the walls in order to annihilate their execrable race. That when the same cannot be done openly I will secretly use the poisonous cup, the strangulation cord, the steel of the poniard, or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honour, rank, dignity or authority of the persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agents of the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Father of the Society of Jesus. In confirmation of which I hereby dedicate my life, soul, and all corporal powers, and with the dagger which I now receive I will subscribe my name written in my blood in testimony thereof; and should I prove false, or weaken in my determination, may my brethren and fellow soldiers of the militia of the Pope cut off my hands and feet and my throat from ear to ear, my belly be opened and sulphur burned therein with all the punishment that can be inflicted upon me on earth, and my soul shall be tortured by demons in eternal hell forever. That I will in voting always vote for a Knight of Columbus in preference to a Protestant, especially a Mason, and that I will leave my party so to do; that if two Catholics are on the ticket I will satisfy myself which is the better supporter of Mother Church and vote accordingly. That I will not deal with or employ a Protestant if in my power to deal with or employ a Catholic. That I will place Catholic girls in Protestant families that a weekly report may be made of the inner movements of the heretics. That I will provide myself with arms and ammunition that I may be in readiness when the word is passed, or I am commanded to defend the Church either as an individual or with the militia of the Pope. All of which I,_______________, do swear by the blessed Trinity and blessed sacrament which I am now to receive to perform and on part to keep this my oath. In testimony hereof, I take this most holy and blessed sacrament of the Eucharist and witness the same further with my name written with the point of this dagger dipped in my own blood and seal in the face of this holy sacrament.
(He receives the wafer from the Superior and writes his name with the point of his dagger dipped in his own blood taken from over his heart.)
(Superior speaks:)
You will now rise to your feet and I will instruct you in the Catechism necessary to make yourself known to any member of the Society of Jesus belonging to this rank. In the first place, you, as a Brother Jesuit, will with another mutually make the ordinary sign of the cross as any ordinary Roman Catholic would; then one crosses his wrists, the palms of his hands open, and the other in answer crosses his feet, one above the other; the first points with forefinger of the right hand to the centre of the palm of the left, the other with the forefinger of the left hand points to the centre of the palm of the right; the first then with his right hand makes a circle around his head, touching it; the other then with the forefinger of his left hand touches the left side of his body just below his heart; the first then with his right hand draws it across the throat of the other, and the latter then with a dagger down the stomach and abdomen of the first. The first then says Iustum; and the other answers Necar; the first Reges; the other answers Impious. The first will then present a small piece of paper folded in a peculiar manner, four times, which the other will cut longitudinally and on opening the name Jesu will be found written upon the head and arms of a cross three times. You will then give and receive with him the following questions and answers:
From whither do you come? Answer: The Holy faith.
Whom do you serve? Answer: The Holy Father at Rome, the Pope, and the Roman Catholic Church Universal throughout the world.
Who commands you? Answer: The Successor of St. Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus or the Soldiers of Jesus Christ.
Who received you? Answer: A venerable man in white hair.
How? Answer: With a naked dagger, I kneeling upon the cross beneath the banners of the Pope and of our sacred order.
Did you take an oath? Answer: I did, to destroy heretics and their governments and rulers, and to spare neither age, nor sex, nor condition; to be as a corpse without any opinion or will of my own, but to implicitly obey my Superiors in all things without hesitation or murmuring.
Will you do that? Answer: I will.
How do you travel? Answer: In the bark of Peter the fisherman.
Whither do you travel? Answer: To the four quarters of the globe.
For what purpose? Answer: To obey the orders of my General and Superiors and execute the will of the Pope and faithfully fulfil the conditions of my oaths.
Go ye, then, into all the world and take possession of all lands in the name of the Pope. He who will not accept him as the Vicar of Jesus and his Vice-Regent on earth, let him be accursed and exterminated.

HIGH TREASON
Bush' Complicit Role in 911 Attack
TWA 800
12 Jul 2006
http://www.waynemadsenreport.com/



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


July 11, 2006 -- The tenth anniversary of the TWA 800 crash off of Long Island, July 17, 2006, is approaching and the mainstream media, as expected, will be spinning the "official" conclusion that the Boeing 747 crashed as the result of center fuel tank spontaneous combustion. WMR has learned from FBI sources that TWA 800 was shot down on July 17, 1996, by a Stinger missile fired from a leased speedboat by individuals associated with white supremacists and neo-Nazis. The late ABC News correspondent and President Kennedy Press Secretary Pierre Salinger reported that TWA 800 was brought down by a missile fired from a Navy ship. Salinger had the story only partially incorrect. TWA 800 was brought down by a Stinger missile stolen in 1993 in a major weapons heist by right-wing militia members from Navy ships anchored off the coast of the U.S. Coastal Systems Base in Panama City, Florida, according to Navy and FBI investigators who investigated the theft.

According to FBI and Florida law enforcement officials, after the United Klans of America was disbanded after a successful lawsuit brought in 1987 by the Southern Poverty Law Center, much of the Klan and Aryan Brotherhood began doing business under a new name: the Northwest Florida Horsemen's Association, operating mainly out of Washington County in the Florida Panhandle. The new incarnation of the Klan in Washington County, Florida, attracted a number of ex-military members after Bill Clinton became President. These included Timothy McVeigh and his Army boot camp friend Terry Nichols. In small towns like Chipley in the Florida Panhandle, the future Oklahoma City bombers would cross paths with those who would plan the Stinger attack on TWA 800.



Oklahoma City bombers Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols crossed paths with future TWA 800 attackers in Florida Panhandle.

But the newly-established Klan and Aryan Brotherhood also attracted the attention of the FBI, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, and the Washington County Sheriff, particularly after the mail bombing campaign directed at U.S. Federal judges in the South and the theft by Klan members of weapons from Florida National Guard armories. In 1993, 214 Stinger missiles, along with a number of AR-15 assault rifles, were stolen from Navy supply ships stationed off the coast of Panama City's Naval Base. The ships, stationed off Panama City since the mid-1980s, maintained full stocks of arms and ammunition in the event they had to be deployed quickly to the Middle East or some other hotspot. According to law enforcement sources in Florida, a number of base officials, including those involved with the security of the base and the pre-stocked ships, were also associated with the white supremacist groups active in the Panhandle. The Naval Investigative Service, FBI, BATF and the Washington County Sheriff investigated the theft of the weapons but were stymied by a lack of cooperation from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, which according to law enforcement sources, was riddled with officers tied to the Klan and cocaine and weapons smuggling operations involving a number of businessmen and covert intelligence operatives who were also close to the Bush family and their Florida cohorts.

The Klan and their Florida business friends were responsible for smuggling drugs and weapons into Los Angeles and reaping lucrative profits from the mainly African-American gangs who they did business with through criminal intermediaries. In one case, the Klan sent 1000 machine guns from Callaway, Florida to street gangs in Los Angeles.

After the Oklahoma City Murrah Federal Office Building bombing on April 15, 1995, the right-wing militia nationally put out an alert. They expected raids by the BATF, FBI, and other law enforcement agencies in reaction to the involvement of two of their numbers -- McVeigh and Nichols -- in the Oklahoma bombing. The militias decided to use their purloined Stingers to bring down U.S. passenger planes. An FBI informant with whom WMR spoke stated that the FBI and Washington County Sheriff's Office first became aware of the theft and possession of the Stingers by the militias when the militia members began discussing the possible sale of the weapons to other militia groups in Panama City. These groups had been penetrated by FBI and local sheriff's informants.

The FBI had sought, unsuccessfully, to retrieve the Stingers by having its informants in the militias offer $30,000 in cash [what the FBI considered was the going rate for street purchases]. There were no takers. In response to the obvious threat posed by the stolen surface-to-air missiles, President Clinton reportedly ordered anti-missile defenses to be enhanced for Air Force One, Marine One, and other VIP aircraft.

The FBI informant with whom WMR spoke also stated that two of the stolen Stingers were transported in early 1996 by a Panama City Naval Base employee to Tennessee where they were then put on a single engine private plane that flew them to New York. TWA 800 was downed by what a number of witnesses said was a ground launched missile on July 17, 1996, just ten days before another right-wing radical associated with the Aryan Brotherhood, Eric Rudolph, detonated a pipe bomb in Atlanta's Centennial Olympic Park, killing an African American and wounding dozens of others.

NTSB Identification: DCA96MA070

Scheduled 14 CFR 121 operation of TRANSWORLD AIRWAYS (D.B.A. TWA)

Accident occurred JUL-17-96 at EAST MORICHES, NY
Aircraft: Boeing 747, registration: N93119
Injuries: 230 Fatal.

On July 17, 1996, about 8:45pm, TWA flight 800, N93119, a Boeing
747-100, crashed into the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Long Island
shortly after takeoff from Kennedy International Airport. The airplane
was on a regularly scheduled flight to Paris, France. The initial
reports are that witnesses saw an explosion and then debris descending
to the ocean. There are no reports of the flight crew reporting a
problem to air traffic control. The airplane was manufactured in
November 1971. It has accumulated about 93,303 flight hours and 16,869
cycles. On board the airplane were 212 passengers and 18 crew members.
The airplane was destroyed and there were no survivors.

NTSB Official Notification of TWA 800 Crash

As with Oklahoma City, the missile attack on TWA 800 was covered up by law enforcement agencies and political interests who saw no benefit in advertising the fact that most terrorist attacks in the United States have been carried out by white, racist, and self-proclaimed "Christian" identity advocates who have had past and current connections with members of the U.S. military, law enforcement, and the Republican Party.
WHAT REALLY HAPPENED TO CHANDRA LEVY

http://www.geocities.com/northstarzone/LEVY.html


WHAT REALLY HAPPENED TO CHANDRA LEVY
During the summer of 2001, the BIG story was the mysterious disappearance of Chandra Levy on May 1, 2001. Levy had been romantically linked to California congressman Gary Condit. Rumors swirled about Condit's perverse sexual appetite, and how Levy had been done away with, directly or indirectly, by Condit, to keep her from ruining his family and career. However, there is an even more sinister side to this story.
On September 11, 2001, Gary Condit, Chandra Levy, and all the attention they had recieved all that summer, came crashing down along with the World Trade Center Towers. In March 2002 Condit lost his bid for re-election, mostly because of his ties to the scandal. The remains of Levy mysteriously appeared May 22, 2002, over a year from the day she disappeared. How strange, her "Skull and Bones" miraculously appeared in a wooded area in Washington's Rock Creek Park. Massive police searches of Rock Creek park produced no results during the summer of 2001, however the following spring she was discovered by a man whose dog was "looking for turtles". It was declared a homicide by investigators. Most of the incriminating evidence was long gone due to the effects of time. They found her remains deep in the woods, next to a tree. Her leggings had been knotted at the ends, leading to speculation that she had been tied up with them, possibly to the tree. The rest of her faded clothes, including Reebok sneakers, and a USC sweatshirt were nearby. Her walkman was found sitting neatly on a rock, with the headphones still attached. Her hyoid bone, located in the neck, had been damaged, which indicated she was probably strangled. It looked as though she had gone into the woods willingly with someone she knew, and was attacked unexpectedly by that person, or the crime scene was set up to appear that way, perhaps at a later date, which seems more likely, considering her remains would have almost certainly caught the attention of police dogs in 2001. In either case, it was NOT a random robbery or mugging. Whatever coverage this once big story had recieved soon came to an end. As with so many other stories, the Corporate Media gave us the Official Party Line when it came to the Levy story, but this story has many layers, and like an onion, the more layers you unravel, the more it stinks.

After September 11, 2001, people began to remark that all of the attention given the Levy case up to the 9-11 attacks was a blatant example of how the media focuses on trivial events in pursuit of ratings. However, believe it or not, the murder of Levy, and the "911 EMERGENCY DAY" attacks, may be directly related. The timing of her disappearance with the September 11 terrorist attacks, as well as the Timothy McVeigh execution, and the circumstaces in her life just prior to her abduction and murder, cast a dark shadow over the entire Chandra Levy mystery. Evidence indicates that the 24 year old Chandra Levy was an agent working for a renegade faction of the MOSSAD, Israel's top spy agency.

Chandra was good looking, and that was an asset. She was known as a thrill seeker, and wanted to become a latter day Mata Hari, a World War One spy who infiltrated high levels of military commands. Even as a teen, Chandra liked to volunteer to assist the local police in her home town of Modesto, California. She would participate in "sting operations", trying to catch local businesses selling alcohol to minors. Those who knew her say she dreamed of becoming a covert operative with the CIA when she grew up. Just weeks before she vanished, Levy took a trip to Israel. Photos of her in Israel later appeared in Time and other major publications. Israel places great importance in its symbiotic relationship with the USA, and they would be unable to exist without the vast amounts of aid, both military and social welfare, that is sent yearly from the U.S.. They also depend on critical intelligence information that is obtained either through cooperation, or covertly. According to a former MOSSAD agent who wishes to remain anonymous, "Operation Dumb Eagle" is the code name for the spy agency's extensive efforts to infiltrate top levels of the U.S. government through the placement of American Jews in sensitive positions. Part of "Operation Dumb Eagle" is the recruitment, training and placement of attractive Jewish coeds as U.S. Interns.

Chandra Levy attended the University of Southern California to earn a Master's degree in Public Administration. While in California, Levy had served as an intern for Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan, and California Governor Gray Davis. There she discovered the private world of high level politicians, many of whom live wild satanic sex lives. She moved from from her home in Modesto to Washington DC in September 2000 to begin an internship at the Federal Bureau of Prisons. After moving to Washington, Chandra was in a perfect position gather top secret information, not only at her job, but also by using her female powers of persuasion. In October 2000, she stopped by the offices of her hometown congressman, Gary Condit. They posed for pictures, and Condit asked Levy if he could see her again sometime. She accepted, and the romance began almost immediatly. The MOSSAD keeps extensive dossiers on a large number of U.S. politicians. And they undoubtedly knew of Condit's wild sex life, and felt that Levy would make the perfect honey trap. Condit's position as a senior member of the intelligence committee would make him a prime target for just such an operation. The sexual seduction of high level government officials by spies is usually of the illicit category, which provides foreign powers the added advantage of being able to better bribe and control the targeted victims, who, as it was with Condit, may be married with children.


As an intern in the Federal Bureau of Prisons during the winter and spring of 2001, she worked in the Public Affairs section, and Press Office. Chandra's co-workers at the Bureau of Prisons praised her work and noted that Chandra was very computer literate. Her last duties at BOP before her unexpected termination, and her disappearance, involved helping arrange media coverage of Timothy McVeigh's execution, originally scheduled for May 16 2001. Chandra was in a perfect position to have access to highly classified data about McVeigh, that linked him to U.S. intelligence operations involving CIA sponsored terrorism, both here and abroad. Chandra would easily be able to obtain this information pertaining to McVeigh, and more importantly, related inside information to the impending 9-11 attacks. Information such as the 1993 WTC bombing materials having been purchased with the credit card of a US Muslim and an FBI provocateur named Melvin Lattimore. Melvin Lattimore was seen by 4 witnesses in McVeigh’s car at the OKC Travelers Aid office adjacent to the Murrah federal building just ONE DAY before the OKC bombing. Six FBI agents spent 9 months browbeating the 4 witnesses, trying to make them change their story about seeing Lattimore at the Travelers Aid. Lattimore was the roommate of the 20th 9/11 hijacker Zacarias Moussaoui while he attended the Airman flight school in Norman Oklahoma in 2000 and 2001. Lattimore was also the roomate of 9/11 hijackers Al Hazmi and Al Shehhi in Norman Oklahoma. At McVeigh's trial his sister read a letter from him to the grand jury in which he told her he was going into the Special Forces Covert Tactical Unit.
Chandra Levy herself checked off McVeigh's visitors. It was reported that she noted some twelve or more visits by Dr. Louis Jolyon West, the UCLA mind control expert for the CIA who pronounced Jack Ruby insane after he suggested a conspiracy in the JFK assassination. He also was the government psychiatrist who handled Sirhan Sirhan while he awaited trial. Jolly West was infamous for his early use of LSD on unsuspecting victims. He was the head of the CIA's mind-control program known as MKULTRA, and was a pioneer of electronic brain experimentation. Chandra's disappearance was conveniently just two weeks before McVeigh's scheduled execution. Due to the discovery of documents that had not been given to McVeigh's defense team, his execution was rescheduled and carried out on June 11, 2001. Rumors ran strong with speculation about the date of Chandra's disappearance and McVeigh's two execution dates. The information that Chandra Levy possessed would have been far more damaging to the government, and their desire to eliminate the potential loose cannon, McVeigh.

Chandra would also have easy access to information concerning members of the Bin Laden Family residing in the U.S., some of whom had national security contracts with the U.S. Government. Osama bin Laden, contrary to the lies put out by the corporate media, was not on the outs with his family, who secretly funded him. It's no coincidence that right after 9-11, the FBI arranged by plane to whisk many Bin Laden Family members out of the U.S.. Chandra had access to records detailing the clandestine business arrangements between the U.S. government and the Bin Laden Family, along with McVeigh's ties to CIA sponsored domestic and foreign terrorists, all of which would be of great interest to the Israeli government. As I've said, Gary Condit was a senior member of the House Select Committee on Intelligence, privy to closed door sessions dealing with covert operations of the spy community. Chandra was reportedly pumping Condit for hot information, in return for sexual favors. In a People Magazine interview on September 9, 2001, Condit indicated Chandra had a strong interest in the McVeigh case, terrorism, and the middle east. "She was much more interested in those things than I was", Condit recalled. The massive publicity evaporated when America was attacked September 11, 2001. Condit demanded of Levy total discretion when it came to ANYTHING concerning their relationship. That included not only private information about his perverted sexual misconduct, but also any INTELLIGENCE INFORMATION she might come across in the course of their relationship.

Anyone "connecting the dots" would have to conclude that Chandra Levy had come upon some of the most incredible intelligence secrets in history, including the plan to use huge terrorist strikes in America to justify global wars, finance the military industrial complex, and justify a police state here at home in a huge power grab. David Schippers, Chief Council for the House Judiciary Committee and head prosecutor responsible for conducting the impeachment against former President Clinton, went public revealing that in the months BEFORE the 9-11 attacks, many FBI agents had come to him informing him about the impending attacks. These agents knew the names of the hijackers, the targets of their attacks, the proposed dates, and the sources of the terrorists' funding, etc., many months in advance of the 9/11 attacks. The FBI command pulled them off of their investigations into these terrorists and threatened them with the National Security Act. They told them that if they talked about any of the information pertaining to their investigations that they would be prosecuted. So many of them sought the council of Mr. Schippers wanting to get somebody in the U.S. government to take action against these terrorists before their plan could be implemented. Mr. Schippers talked to many Congressmen and Senators, and tried to get a hold of Att. Gen. John Ashcroft, all only to get the run-around.

Chandra Levy, through her sensitive position in the Federal Bureau of Prisons, through their computers and facilities, and human intelligence contacts, and through her intimate relationship with a congressman on the intelligence commitee, unearthed a dangerous group of details related to the coming 9-11 attacks, the same information the FBI agents had brought to Schippers. She had none of the restrictions the FBI agents had, or so she thought, and apparently was about to go public with the information. The MOSSAD had tried to warn American intelligence about their knowledge of the planned 9-11 attacks, and were met with indifference. Was at least some of the information they had, been obtained from their agent, the now missing Levy? It would seem highly likely.


ROCK CREEK PARK...SCENE OF THE CRIME
It would also seem that all of this would end Chandra Levy's life. Shortly after signing off of her computer at 1 pm, on May 1, 2001, she walked out of her apartment to meet someone at the Klingle Mansion, an old building now being used as a storage facility, in a remote section of Rock Creek Park, a large, forested area in Washington D.C. about two miles from Levy's apartment. A perfect spot, if you want no witnessess. At this point, she was either abducted or murdered. Her body was discovered in the woods a short distance from the Klingle Mansion. One of the last things she did on her computer on the day she disappeared was visit the MapQuest website to look up a map of Rock Creek Park, and specifically, Klingle Mansion.
On September 11, 2001, five Israelis were seen atop a white panel van in New York City. They were using a video camera. This Israeli spy team videotaped the entire terrorist incident from START to FINISH. Nearby observers who clandestinely saw them were astonished to see the five men shouting joyously and jumping up and down as the explosions ripped through the towers and each building collapsed. These nearby witnesses phoned the NYC police and the FBI. The FBI came and arrested the five, who turned out to be Israelis carrying false visa papers. The five were stripped of their clothes, incarcerated in dark jail cells, and interrogated nonstop for hours by FBI agents. The FBI interrogators believed the five were Israeli MOSSAD spy agents. Their arrest alerted the FBI to the existence of some 200 Israeli "commandos" training at a warehouse in New Jersey. They and the five arrested were "employed" by a bogus moving company owned by an Israeli. After diplomatic intervention at the highest levels of the Israeli and U.S. governments, the NYC FBI squad was ordered to cease their investigation, release the five suspects, and turn them over to the Israeli Consul. They were immediately flown to Israel. It seems highly likely that these events were the result of advance intelligence information obtained by Chandra Levy, and passed on to Israel prior to her May 1st abduction.


Chandra was also friendly with a circle of Republicans that include George W. Bush's strategy chief, Karl Rove. Of course, not a lot of people knew, or know, that Chandra Levy went to Bush's January 20th, 2001 inauguration, had a seat in the VIP section, and attended one of the balls. There also was MORE sensitive material Chandra Levy had access to. For example, that the government knowingly arranged for their business partner, Drug Kingpin Carlos Lehder, to disappear from the Federal prison system. He was allowed to disappear from the U.S., thanks to the corruption and connivance at the highest levels of the government. Coral Talavera, the wife of Lehder, in an on-the-record interview, has made it clear that Lehder is out of prison, working for the United States government, and is directly connected to the CIA, and the U.S. Treasury. This scenario was well supported by statements from a number of credible sources, including reporters, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, and Lehder's prosecutor, former U.S. Attorney Robert Merkle.

That the the F.B.I. claimed for so long that they had no idea who or what was behind the murder of Chandra Levy is just an outright lie. They know, and knew from the start, that she was being used by the MOSSAD to obtain top secret information. The lead FBI investigator in the Chandra Levy case is Special Agent Bradley J. Garrett. He is known as "The Fixer", because he is called in to find patsy's to take the blame for government murders. Notice a few details from his past: Garrett was the lead FBI investigator in the strange death of Clinton White House Deputy Counsel Vincent W. Foster. Foster's body was, like Levy's, found in a heavily wooded area near Washington D.C.. The official cause of death, touted from the outset as a suicide, was declared due to a gunshot fired into the mouth. The weapon, said to be a black 1913 Army Colt .38 Special six-shot revolver, was said to have been found in Foster's hand. It is significant, therefore, to note that x-rays of the initial autopsy of Vincent Foster's corpse are listed by Federal coroners as now being "missing", and that no one in the Foster family recalls there being a firearm of that model or appearance anywhere, ever, in their residence. Also, there was no blood found on the cuff, sleeve, or wrist of Foster, as would have been elicited naturally, from what they call "blowback", by a self-inflicted gunshot held close inside the soft-palate. The first witness to find the body insisted that there had been no gun near the body. The memory in Foster's pager had been erased. Foster's office at the White House was looted. Secret Service agent Henry O' Neill watched Hillary Clinton's chief of staff, Margaret Williams, carry boxes of papers out of Foster's office before the Police showed up to seal it. There were indications the body had been moved, and a Secret Service memo surfaced which reported that Foster's body had been found in his car! Garrett helped to completly cover up these glaring inconsistencies.
Garrett was also the lead FBI investigator in the murder of Clinton White House intern, Mary Caitrin Mahoney. You see, A U.S. Secret Service Agent assigned to checking doors at the White House, opened a door one night and found Hillary Clinton in a compromising sexual position with Ms. Mahoney, a known lesbian since her high school days. Hillary was furious and whacked him in the head with a metal ashtray. Ms. Mahoney was shot to death at a Starbucks Coffee Shop, right in the heart of Washington DC, a short time later. On July 7, 1997 Mahoney was in the Starbucks cafe cleaning up after closing time with co-workers Emory Evans and Aaron Goodrich. Sometime after 9pm, two gunmen got inside and shot all three to death. Mahoney was singled out for the most horrendous fate - as if she'd been the killers' prime target. Of the ten shots fired, she was hit five times at point blank range, including at least once in the face. The final bullet was delivered to the back of her head after she'd already fallen. In one hand, in a death grip, Mahoney clutched the keys to the store's safe, which held the weekend's receipts of more than $10,000. D.C. cops were mystified by the apparent lack of motive in the crime. The safe hadn't been opened. The cash registers were undisturbed. The store hadn't been ransacked. None of the victims' personal belongings had been touched. One wonders why a high-powered Washington FBI agent, with ties to the intelligence community, was involved in a case claimed to be a routine robbery murder case, supposedly committed by a small time criminal, one Carl Derek Cooper. After 54 hours of questioning by Garrett and another agent, Cooper signed a confession that he immediately repudiated as soon as he got to court. During his 54 hours of interrogation, Cooper had consistently denied the crime and volunteered several times to take a lie detector test. Most of the testimony against him was by agent Garrett, and based on Garrett’s representation of what Cooper had said during the interrogation. The questioning was not recorded or videotaped. Garrett had sucessfully arranged to blame the crime on a vulnerable nobody.

There was a genuinely farcical attempt to pin the Levy murder on a minor criminal, Ingmar Guandique, an illegal immigrant from El Salvador who had been known to assault joggers in the area. After he passed a lie detector test, and the complete lack of any possible similarity between his crimes and the known facts of the Levy case, they had to drop it.


Chandra Levy had expected to stay on as an intern at the Federal Bureau of Prisons until September 2001. Her internship was abrubtly and unexpectedly ended just days before her disappearance. It's likely she was caught going into unauthorized areas. She also had applied for permanent full time jobs with the FBI and the CIA, where full background checks are mandatory. It's likely her snooping at BOP, her relationship with Condit, AND her connections to the MOSSAD had turned up in her background investigation. And THAT made it imperative to get her out of the Bureau of Prisons immediately, and then off the planet. The BOP offered several conflicting versions of why Levy was let go, none of them believable. Also, her relationship with Condit had taken a sudden turn for the worse. Condit was trying to distance himself from Levy, and was becoming annoyed at her increasingly frequent and almost desperate calls. Levy, in the course of her relationship with Condit, had developed an obsession for him, but the relationship was over. Clearly, both Condit and the BOP had been tipped off, and been made aware of her ties to the MOSSAD. Chandra Levy undoubtedly felt betrayed by all concerned. She no longer had reason to hold back on all of the information she had gathered, and was almost certainly going to make it public.
Not only was Chandra Levy snuffed out to eliminate any risk of the impending 9-11 attacks, and the McVeigh information leaking out such a short time before his scheduled execution, but also to protect high ranking members of the Federal government from having their partnership with drug cartel baron Carlos Lehder, and his disappearance from the Federal Prison System, becoming widely and publicly exposed. So, the Counter-Intelligence Division of the FBI was tapping her phone, and watching her very closely.

These incredible things prove that what is presented to us in the media is almost never what it would seem to be. Through her connections to the MOSSAD, through her internship with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, and access to top security information, and through her involvement with a Congressman, a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, and having topmost security clearance, and the circumstances in her life just prior to her abduction and murder, one could only conclude that Chandra Levy had knowledge of the Carlos Lehder affair, the Timothy McVeigh matter, and most importantly, the impending 9-11 attacks. Was she about to go public with it? It would seem beyond a shadow of a doubt. On the day before she disappeared, May 1, 2001, she left a message on the phone machine of a close family member. She said that there was something BIG, and something important to tell them about. She wouldn't say what it was, and that was the last time she was heard from.


CHANDRA LEVY IN ISRAEL, JUST WEEKS BEFORE HER DISAPPEARANCE
To those who cannot believe all of this, I contend that you are not only ignoring the opinions of seasoned intelligence operatives, but also ignoring the indisputable truth that all of this is exactly how covert intelligence operations are, and have been conducted, for many years.
So exactly who killed Chandra Levy? Gary Condit, while obviously leaving much to be desired in his personal life, was probably little more than a dupe in all of this. He made the perfect villian, and the perfect fall guy. His sick private life gave him all the reason in the world to act suspicious in the glaring light of media attention. Al Martin, one of America's foremost government whistleblowers, and a retired Navy Lt. Commander, claims there were a mystery set of fingerprints found at the Chandra Levy murder scene. The fingerprints belong to a shadowy figure named Alejandro Martinez, a longtime CIA employee, and former CIA drug pilot during the Iran Contra operation. Martinez had ties to Oliver North. He's disappeared, and nobody knows where he's gone. When he went to buy some false identity papers, apparently because he needed to get out of the United States in a hurry, the match came up. There was obviously another dimension to this story, and you will never hear about it in the mainstream media. The facts point to only one conclusion. That Chandra Levy was the victim of a government hit, and Condit was used as a decoy patsy for a murder network that extends to the very heights of U.S. power.


Chandra Levy was used by everyone involved. She was doing her job, and the hottest intelligence secret of all time fell right into her hands. She was young, naive, and still believed that it was wrong to use mass terrorism as a psychological tool for political purposes. Unfortunately, for this, she paid the ultimate price. To say that the disappearance and death of Chandra Levy was more than the result of a sexual relationship gone bad, is a gross understatement, to say the least. Had she not vanished, it now seems likely that, not only the planned 9-11 attacks could have been stopped, but also that the resultant wars, and world wide chaos that we are now witnessing, would never have happened.

As with Waco, the OKC bombing, and of course 9-11, the establishment put their spin on the Levy story, and nothing more is said. The truth about Chandra Levy will never be told by the mainstream media. Condit lost his bid for re-election, the global wars are raging, with more being planned, and Chandra Levy is just a faded memory. Another lie told, another lie accepted. Mission accomplished. Let's move on. Do not make the mistake of thinking that September 11, 2001 happened the way they brainwashed you to think it did. And try to understand the true nature of the people who control this global government. Illusion is the name of their game, and they're quite skilled at it. They should be. It's a game they've been playing for such a long time.

Police to return to parks in Levy case
Experts: Condit damaged own reputation
July 22, 2001 Posted: 6:07 PM EDT (2207 GMT)



Police say Chandra Levy was last seen April 30 but was logged onto her computer at home on May 1


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





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

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Police are expected to resume their search of city parks Monday as the investigation into Chandra Levy's nearly three-month-old disappearance plows ahead with no firm lead on what happened to the former federal Bureau of Prisons intern.

Meanwhile, legal experts said Sunday that Rep. Gary Condit, D-California, has hurt his credibility because of his actions related to the case.

Condit, who police sources said admitted to a romantic relationship with Levy during his third interview with police, has not taken an FBI polygraph, although his lawyer arranged for one that was privately administered.

A law enforcement source said Saturday that authorities "probably" want to interview Condit for a fourth time.

Message board: The case of the missing intern





Speaking on CNN's Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer, Lanny Davis, special counsel under former President Bill Clinton, said Condit has harmed his reputation, regardless of how the Levy case turns out.

"Let me make it clear, I presume he's completely innocent of any involvement with Chandra Levy. And if it turns out to be the case, he will claim vindication. I will claim exactly the opposite. You did injury to yourself and to the investigation by not telling the truth upfront," Davis said.

Levy, a former intern with the U.S. Bureau of Prisons, was last seen April 30 at her Washington gym.

Condit, 53, is one of more than 100 people police have interviewed in connection with the case, but he has generated the most media attention because of his status as a U.S. congressman and because of his reported extramarital affair with the 24-year-old woman. Police say repeatedly that he is not a suspect in the case.

He has never publicly acknowledged a romantic relationship with Levy and has denied it through his aides. Levy's family believes he was having an affair with Levy and police sources said Condit admitted to an affair in an interview.

Former U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova said Condit's actions amounted to obstruction of justice.

Condit's attorney has maintained that his client has cooperated with police, noting his willingness to let authorities search his apartment and give a DNA sample.

DiGenova, however, cited Condit's initial failure to acknowledge a romantic relationship with Levy to police, the accusation from a flight attendant that he had asked her to mislead authorities about their romantic relationship and Condit's disposal of a watch case hours before police searched his apartment.

Police sources Friday said that four hours before police began a July 10 search of Condit's apartment, the lawmaker was spotted dumping something into a trash can in a nearby Virginia suburb. Officers found a watch case, which was traced to a California store and a woman who said she bought the watch for Condit as a gift.

"It may seem at first glance it doesn't have anything to do with this case but in fact has everything to do with this case, because it, again, it involves conduct certainly unbecoming a member of Congress ... and perhaps is part of a pattern of obstructive behavior," DiGenova said.

In other developments, the management of the apartment building where Levy lived sent a memo Friday to residents, asking them to cooperate with police in the investigation.

Last month, police asked the front desk clerks to describe what they saw at the building in the days leading up to Levy's disappearance.

Police combed through several city parks last week, including Rock Creek Park near Levy's apartment, but reported finding no clues. The search is expected to resume Monday.

Sen. Joseph Lieberman, D-Connecticut, said it wouldn't be productive to focus on Condit's conduct. In 1998, Lieberman was the first prominent Democrat to criticize Clinton for his affair with Monica Lewinsky.

Lieberman said the two matters are different and he declined to say whether Condit should resign, as two Republican lawmakers have said.

"The Chandra Levy case is a missing persons case. And I think we all ought to let the law-enforcement authorities focus on finding Chandra Levy and relieving the terrible trauma and nightmare that her family and friends have gone through," Lieberman told Fox News Sunday. "And when that is over, politicians can begin to speak out."

Saturday, a spokeswoman for Vice President Dick Cheney, said Cheney met with Condit around the same time Levy was logging off her computer in her apartment May 1.

Juleanna Glover Weiss said the meeting happened between 12:30 p.m. and 12:50 p.m. in Cheney's office in the House of Representatives. The meeting was "at Condit's request," she said, and included Cheney and some of Cheney's staff discussing the California energy crisis.

Glover Weiss described it as a typical meeting.

CNN has also learned Condit voted on the House floor the evening of May 1, at 6:25 p.m. and 6:35 p.m.

Isn't it interesting that Lieberman's name pops up in the case of two similar-looking tarts, who were "Honey Pots" (or "Swallows" - the term used to describe women in the employ of Israel whose job is to compromise US Officials) for Israel's Mossad?

CHENEY ORDERED THE HIT TO PROTECT THE 9/11 OPERATION?

Posted by PLUNGER 07/12/2006 @ 10:05am | ignore this person


You want to know how stuff REALLY works in washington...read this:

http://www.geocities.com/northstarzone/LEVY.html...

WHAT REALLY HAPPENED TO CHANDRA LEVY

excerpts:

The MOSSAD keeps extensive dossiers on a large number of U.S. politicians. And they undoubtedly knew of Condit's wild sex life, and felt that Levy would make the perfect honey trap.

Chandra was in a perfect position to have access to highly classified data about McVeigh, that linked him to U.S. intelligence operations involving CIA sponsored terrorism, both here and abroad. Chandra would easily be able to obtain this information pertaining to McVeigh, and more importantly, related inside information to the impending 9-11 attacks. Information such as the 1993 WTC bombing materials having been purchased with the credit card of a US Muslim and an FBI provocateur named Melvin Lattimore.

Anyone "connecting the dots" would have to conclude that Chandra Levy had come upon some of the most incredible intelligence secrets in history, including the plan to use huge terrorist strikes in America to justify global wars, finance the military industrial complex, and justify a police state here at home in a huge power grab.

David Schippers, Chief Council for the House Judiciary Committee and head prosecutor responsible for conducting the impeachment against former President Clinton, went public revealing that in the months BEFORE the 9-11 attacks, many FBI agents had come to him informing him about the impending attacks.

Mr. Schippers talked to many Congressmen and Senators, and tried to get a hold of Att. Gen. John Ashcroft, all only to get the run-around.

Chandra Levy, through her sensitive position in the Federal Bureau of Prisons, through their computers and facilities, and human intelligence contacts, and through her intimate relationship with a congressman on the intelligence commitee, unearthed a dangerous group of details related to the coming 9-11 attacks, the same information the FBI agents had brought to Schippers. She had none of the restrictions the FBI agents had, or so she thought, and apparently was about to go public with the information.

The lead FBI investigator in the Chandra Levy case is Special Agent Bradley J. Garrett. He is known as "The Fixer", because he is called in to find patsy's to take the blame for government murders. Notice a few details from his past: Garrett was the lead FBI investigator in the strange death of Clinton White House Deputy Counsel Vincent W. Foster.

Garrett was also the lead FBI investigator in the murder of Clinton White House intern, Mary Caitrin Mahoney. You see, A U.S. Secret Service Agent assigned to checking doors at the White House, opened a door one night and found Hillary Clinton in a compromising sexual position with Ms. Mahoney

Chandra Levy had expected to stay on as an intern at the Federal Bureau of Prisons until September 2001. Her internship was abrubtly and unexpectedly ended just days before her disappearance. It's likely she was caught going into unauthorized areas. She also had applied for permanent full time jobs with the FBI and the CIA, where full background checks are mandatory. It's likely her snooping at BOP, her relationship with Condit, AND her connections to the MOSSAD had turned up in her background investigation.

Not only was Chandra Levy snuffed out to eliminate any risk of the impending 9-11 attacks, and the McVeigh information leaking out such a short time before his scheduled execution, but also to protect high ranking members of the Federal government from having their partnership with drug cartel baron Carlos Lehder, and his disappearance from the Federal Prison System, becoming widely and publicly exposed.

Through her connections to the MOSSAD, through her internship with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, and access to top security information, and through her involvement with a Congressman, a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, and having topmost security clearance, and the circumstances in her life just prior to her abduction and murder, one could only conclude that Chandra Levy had knowledge of the Carlos Lehder affair, the Timothy McVeigh matter, and most importantly, the impending 9-11 attacks. Was she about to go public with it? It would seem beyond a shadow of a doubt. On the day before she disappeared, May 1, 2001, she left a message on the phone machine of a close family member. She said that there was something BIG, and something important to tell them about. She wouldn't say what it was, and that was the last time she was heard from.

Falwell Confirms Lewinsky Affair Linked to Israeli Lobby Intrigue

By Michael Collins Piper

Television evangelist Jerry Falwell couldn't resist bragging and finally admitting the truth: he and former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu did conspire--at a critical time--to trip up President Bill Clinton and specifically use the pressure of the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal to force Clinton to abandon pressure on Israel to withdraw from the occupied West Bank.

Falwell's confession didn't make national news--as it should have. Instead, the preacher's confession came buried in a lengthy story in the December 2005 issue of Vanity Fair. Entitled "American Rapture" the article (by Craig Unger) described the long-standing and still-flourishing love affair between American dispensationalist evangelicals such as Falwell and the hardline Jewish extremist forces in Israel then under the leadership of Binyamin "Bibi" Netanyahu.

The admission by Falwell confirms precisely what this author first revealed in a story published in The Spotlight on February 9, 1998 and later recounted in a lecture before the Arab League's official think tank, the Zayed Centre in Abu Dhabi, in March of 2003.

Although, following the lecture at the Zayed Centre, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) of B'nai B'rith, a lobby for Israel, denounced as a "bizarre conspiracy theory" the assertion by Falwell that the public unveiling of the Lewinsky affair forced Clinton to pull back on pressuring Israel confirmed exactly what was reported in documented detail in The Spotlight in an international exclusive.

Regarding Falwell's recounting of how he worked with Netanyahu in undermining Clinton's pressure on Israel, Vanity Fair reported:

On a visit to Washington, D.C. in 1998, Netanyahu hooked up with Jerry Falwell at the Mayflower Hotel the night before [Netanyahu's] scheduled meeting with Clinton. "I put together 1,000 people or so to meet with Bibi [Netanyahu] and he spoke to us that night," recalls Falwell. "It was all planned by Netanyahu as an affront to Mr. Clinton." . . . The next day, Netanyahu met with Clinton at the White House. "Bibi told me later," Falwell recalls, "that the next morning Bill Clinton said, ‘I know where you were last night." The pressure was really on Netanyahu to give away the farm in Israel. It was during the Monica Lewinsky scandal . . . . Clinton had to save himself, so he terminated the demands [to relinquish West Bank territory] that would have been forthcoming during that meeting, and would have been very bad for Israel." (END OF VANITY FAIR EXCERPT)

What Falwell did not mention--at least as reported by Vanity Fair--is that his meeting with the Israeli leader took place on the very evening before the mass media in America broke open the Monica Lewinsky scandal with much fanfare. Nor did Falwell mention--as this author pointed out at the time-- was that one of Netanyahu's leading American media publicists, neo-conservative power broker, William Kristol, the first American media figure to publicly hint (in the days before the scandal was officially unveiled) that there were forthcoming revelations regarding a White House sex scandal that was about to be unleashed.

In addition, this author pointed out that at least six days before the first news of the Lewinsky scandal began breaking in the media at midnight on Tuesday, January 20, 1998, an advertisement appeared in the January 15 edition of the distinguished Washington Jewish Week newspaper accusing President Clinton of having "turned his back on Israel."

What made the advertisement so striking was that it used a rear view of President Clinton (first captured on video in 1996) that had never been published but which, in the wake of the Lewinsky scandal, became very familiar. It was a view of the president, his back to the camera, clearly taken from the video in which he was seen hugging the soon-to-be infamous Miss Lewinsky when she was in a receiving line at the White House some two years before. This was an image that Miss Lewinsky had bragged about among her associates prior to the time that the scandal broke. So clearly, Clinton's critics among the hard-line pro-Netanyahu forces in the United States--who sponsored the advertisement in question--were already tuned in to the fact of the Lewinsky-Clinton liaison and of the fact that it was soon to be unleashed against the president to undermine him.

This author can now reveal, for the first time, that two figures at the very highest level of the Clinton White House were personally given copies of The Spotlight's articles regarding these matters and that, at the time, they quietly acknowledged that the articles were "probably right."

The fact that Jerry Falwell's acknowledgment of how the Lewinsky affair was used as a club against Clinton--in tandem with "Bibi" Netanyahu's appearance at the White House, following the meeting with Falwell--was published in Vanity Fair is interesting in and of itself. That magazine is owned by the far-flung publishing empire of the billionaire Newhouse brothers ("Si" and Donald) whom Forbes dubbed the 25th richest family in America and who are known to be generous contributors to the Anti-Defamation League and other elements of the pro-Israel lobby.

Israeli Sexpionage : The McGreevey, Condit and Clinton Affairs

Chandra Levy and Monica Lewinsky, which I will discuss later, can be called "Swallows".

Zionist Israel places great importance in its "symbiotic" relationship with the USA. In fact, the State of Israel would be unable to exist without the vast amounts of aid, both military and social welfare, that is sent yearly to prop up the Zionist government. This total amount is estimated to be more than 5 Billion dollars per year. In addition, Israel survives and depends on critical technology transfers that are obtained both through cooperation and covertly. For example, Israel now possess thermonuclear bombs and missiles, thanks to an American Jew, Jonathan Pollard, who stole the "nuclear secrets" while working as a US Naval Analyst. Pollard, it was admitted by the Israeli government, was a MOSSAD spy. He is presently doing a life term in a US Federal Prison for his crime.

The success and effectiveness of the Israel/USA symbiotic relationship depends on many factors. One is massive propaganda through the US based Zionist press that keeps the American people in a constant stupor about certain political and economic realities. Another is the near total subserviency of corrupt politicians, especially of the Democratic Party, who do not speak up because they are on the take. Another is the massive infiltration into government of what are nothing less than Israeli agents. Israeli agents in the Pentagon, for example, has caused the USA dearly in terms of the costs of the "War on Iraq" and in terms of its "hated image" around the world.

Lastly, a factor that is very important for Israel in keeping a profitable symbiotic relationships with the USA is effective sexpionage. Sexpionage is so important to Israel, that it has opened an office for this purpose right smack in the center of US political power -- Washington D.C. The office fronts as a post 911 anti-terrorism institute and is located at 3811 N. Fairfax Drive, Suite 720 Arlington, VA 22203. The Chief of the office is non other that the immediate former Director of the Israeli MOSSAD, Shabtai Shavit.

The target in this sexpionage operation was the married Gary Condit, who was a senior member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. As member of the committee, Condit was privy to highly classified information of much interest to Zionist Israel. The MOSSAD leaned on their "sleeper and sexpionage agent" Chandra Levy to obtain the secret US government information that the Israeli government needed. The MOSSAD arranged for Chandra Levy, than a US government intern, to meet Congressman Condit. Soon, the married Condit was having a sexual affair with the voluptuous 24 year old Chandra Levy.

Whatever classified information Levy was able to obtain, on her "sexpionage mission", was at the cost of her life. One day before she was to return to California, she disappeared without a trace. The Washington D.C. police searched Congressman Condit's apartment for clues to no avail. Thirteen months later the "skull and bones" of Chandra Levy were found at Washington's Rock Creek Park even though the park had been repeatedly searched during the early phases of the investigation.

Everyone reading this report should be acquainted with the President Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky affair. This has been called "The Mother of all Sexpionage Scandals" because it almost toppled a US presidency. Generally less known is the fact that Monica Lewinsky was actually a "sexpionage agent" working on behalf of the Israeli government. She was, and probably still is, what the MOSSAD calls a "Swallow".

It is believed that Lewinsky's primary mission was to sexually compromise Bill Clinton in order to bribe him to release the Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard. The timing and unfolding of the "White House Sex Scandal" coincided with the efforts and meetings by the then Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu with President Bill Clinton in the White House.

The mission for Israel failed but it ended giving the Zionist state some peripheral benefits. In an effort by Clinton to rid himself of the "Swallow", he transferred her to the Pentagon with the highest "security clearance" possible and which is only afforded to top brass and a few high level government officials. Soon Monica Lewinsky was cavorting with Admirals and Generals and became pregnant. She says she aborted the baby.

No one knows what Pentagon secrets Lewinsky was able to pass on to the Zionists, but perhaps Paul Wolfowitz' great success in involving the USA in the War against Iraq may be the results of Monica Lewinsky's efforts on behalf of Israel. Sexpionage pays and it is paying big for Israel.

Book, Nazi Hydra

http://www.spiritone.com/~gdy52150/noon.html

It is this unbridled corporatism that is the very heart of fascism. Notice how the words of George Seldes written in 1943 are still true today about those that place profits above patriotism. The stated objective of the first Bush administration was to determine, which corporations were responsible for supplying Iraq with the equipment to produce chemical and biological weapons, and to bring them to justice. Ten years after the Gulf War, not a single corporation has been charged, and the media has quietly swept that pledge under the rug. As Seldes stated, they are immune.

More odious is that Dick Cheney, Secretary of Defense in the first Bush administration and the current vice-president, sold Iraq dual-use equipment during his tenure as CEO of Halliburton. Such equipment can be used to rebuild Iraq's weapons of mass destruction. As Secretary of Defense, Cheney awarded several contracts to Halliburton's subsidiary, Brown and Root Services, for reports as to how private companies could provide logistical support to troops in potential war zones. From 1992 to 1999, with Cheney at Halliburton's helm, Brown and Root was awarded a total of $1.2 billion in defense contracts. Here again is a revolving door between corporate America and government. A door leading only to servitude. Not one mention of these deals was made in the press during the 2000 election campaign. Nor was the failure to prosecute the companies that supplied Iraq with the weapons of mass destruction ever mentioned. While the press viciously accused President Clinton of wagging the dog after UN inspectors were forced to leave Iraq, they made no mention of Cheney selling dual use equipment to Iraq.

Here we have the heart of the problem of the next century: corporate power. Corporations have acquired too much power. They have become so powerful they can openly flaunt our labor laws, our environmental laws and even sell materials for weapons of mass destruction without fear. The problem has become so widespread, and corporations have become so powerful, that society now serves the corporations rather than corporations serving society. "

From the Streets of Little Beirut

By Glen Yeadon

There were little warning signs but few were paying attention when George Bush the poppy ran for president in 1988 and 1992. First during the campaign it surfaced that one of his campaign staffers was a distributor of pro-Nazi propaganda. Before the ink was dry on the individual’s resignation, further revelations showed there were in fact a number of ex-Nazis on Bush’s campaign staff including Laszlo Pastor and Yaroslav Stetsko. Pastor was a member of the Hungarian Arrow Cross during WWII and served as an envoy to Germany. The Arrow Cross was known to be excessively brutal even to their Nazi allies. Stetsko served as the prime minister of the short lived Ukrainian puppet government. During the short reign of this puppet regime over 100,000 Jews were slaughtered in Lvov. George Bush’s insensitivity towards victims of the holocaust is underlined by his employment of Fred Malek, a well-known collaborator with former Nazis in both his presidential campaigns.

Upon winning the presidential race, George Bush, the poppy placed his assets in a blind trust headed by his close friend William Stamps Farish III. That appointment should have triggered alarm bells that something very dark and sinister is buried in the Bush family’s past. His grandfather William Stamps Farish sold the Japanese the gasoline used in the attack on Pearl Harbor. Likewise, the elder Farish supplied Hitler’s war machine with oil and tetraethyl lead. George Bush’s father, Prescott was close friends with the elder Farish and remained so even after the elder’s testimony before congress provoked Harry Truman to cry out "This is Treason."

In fact, during the war, Prescott had three companies seized from him for trading with the Nazis. To understand the web of intrigue and follow the money from the Holocaust to the Bush family we need to start with the period immediately surrounding WWI. By 1916 August Thyssen could see that Germany had already lost the Great War and he needed to protect his fortune. His eldest son had been groomed to run the family steel business in the Ruhr. His second son Heinrich discreetly changed his citizenship from German to Hungarian and married the Hungarian aristocrat Baroness Margrit Bornemisza de Kaszon. Near the end of the war August Thyssen opened the Bank voor Handel en Scheepvaart in Rotterdam. Holland was a neutral country during the war and the new bank would serve as the perfect location to launder funds from the Thyssen Bank in Berlin and protect his fortune from allied financial demands. At the end of the war Heinrich now going by the name of Baron Thyssen Bornemisza de Kaszon moved to Rotterdam and became the principal owner of the Bank voor Handel en Scheepvaart. All that remained to be done in August Thyseen’s plan was to set up an American Bank.

In 1922, Averell Harriman traveled to Germany to set up a branch of W.A. Harriman in Berlin. Harriman had hired George Herbert Walker, George Bush’s grandfather to run both the New York and Berlin branches of his expanding investment firm. During his stay in Germany Harriman had met the Thyseen family and agreed to help the Thyssen’s set up an American bank.

In 1923, Germany was in economic shambles and Thyssen met with his friend General Ludendorff, who advised him that Germany’s hope lied with Hitler and the Nazi Party. Thyssen soon became a financial backer of the Nazis and Hitler.

Early in 1924, Hendrick J. Kouwenhoven, the managing director of Bank voor Handel en Scheepvaart, traveled to New York. Meeting with Walker and the Harriman brothers, they founded the Union Banking Corporation. In 1926, August Thyssen died the eldest son Fritz expanded the Thyssen empire by creating United Steel Works. Thyssen also brought Fredich Flick on board. The Thyssen-Flick union was designed to suppress the union movement. As a result of the merger of Thyssen and Flick, George Walker hired his son in law Prescott Bush to manage the United Steel Works account. One division of United Steel Works consisted of both Consolidated Silesian Steel Corporation and the Upper Silesian Coal and Steel Company. Both were located in the mineral rich Silesian area of Poland. The arrangement was extremely profitable for all four men: Thyssen, Flick, Walker and Bush until the depression started in 1929. Congressional investigations after the war showed that United Steel had supplied 50.8 percent of the pig iron in Nazi Germany and likewise was a major supplier of all other ferrous based metal products needed by Hitler’s war machine. Hence, one of the largest munitions makers in Nazi Germany was funded by Prescott Bush, the father and grandfather of two future US Presidents.

Due to the depression, Harriman merged with Brown forming the Brown Brothers and Harriman firm. Internally the stock of Consolidated Silesian Steel Company was held by the Harriman 15 Corporation formed by Harriman and Bush. Two thirds of the stock was owned by Flick. By 1934, with Hitler in solid control of Germany the profits from the Thyssen-Flick union soared to over a hundred million. Both Union Bank and the Bank voor Handel en Scheepvaart were overflowing with money. Prescott Bush became managing director of Union Bank and took over the day-to-day operations of the German plan.

In 1939, the Nazis invaded Poland ending a dispute over taxes between Consolidated and the Polish government. The Nazis original plan was to replace the workers in Polish factories with Soviet prisoners. However, that portion of the Hitler-Stalin agreement was never implemented. Consolidated Silesian Steel Corporation was located near the Polish town of Oswiecim. When the plan to use Soviet prisoners as forced labor fell through, the Nazis began shipping Jews, communists, gypsies and other minority populations to the camp the Nazis had set up. This was the beginning of Auschwitz. The reason Auschwitz was located there was because of the abundant supplies of coal which could be processed into aviation fuel. I.G. Farben soon built a plant near Auschwitz to take advantage of not only of the nearby coal deposits but also of the slave labor supply available at Auschwitz. According to a Dutch intelligence agent, Prescott Bush managed a portion of the slave labor force in Poland.

Thyssen and Flick sold Consolidated Steel to UBC. Under the complete control of Harriman and Bush’s management, the company became Silesian American Corporation, which became part of UBC and Harriman's portfolio of 15 corporations. As the 1930s progressed and it became clearer that war was imminent, Bush and Harriman hired the Dulles brothers to conceal the Nazi money and ownership in Union Bank. In concealing the involvement of the Nazis in Union Bank, Prescott Bush and Harriman undoubtedly knew that they were already engaged in an activity that was probably illegal and certainly not in the best of interests of their country. Once war broke out however, Bush’s activities on the behalf of the Nazis through Union Banking became tantamount to treason.

The reader should understand that the concealing of Nazis assets located in the United States through a maze of corporate shells often based in Switzerland was an integral part of the German battle plan. In fact, the Nazi had a word for it, tarnung or to camouflage. The primary aim of these concealed Nazi corporations was to wage economic warfare by creating production bottlenecks for their adversary. The reader should also be aware that two Americans were present during the secret meeting of the German elite that brought Hitler to power. Those two Americans were John Foster and Allen Dulles.

Two of the directors of Union Banking Groninger and Kouwenhoven, were Nazi directors of the Bank voor Handel en Scheepvaart, formerly the von Heydt Bank. Von Heydt was also a Nazi and has been identified as the intermediary between the Guaranty Trust and Adolf Hitler. Both Groninger and Kouwenhoven contributed lavishly to Himmler’s Circle of Friends. There were over forty firms around Auschwitz using slave labor from the death camp. Soon the Nazis had a massive store of gold from dental fillings, glasses and jewelry. The Nazis extracted the fillings of its victims after being informed by Degussa that the company could refine it into marketable gold bullion. Degussa was awarded an exclusive contract with the Nazis to refine all gold. The company was also joint owners with I.G. Farben of Degesch, a firm that produced Zyklon-B cyanide tablets used in the gas chambers. Due to the hoard of gold fillings stacking up at Auschweitz, Degussa built a smelter there. The bullion was then shipped back to Berlin and commingled with the Nazis gold stash. Undoubtedly some of it made its way back to the banker in charge of United Steel Works, Prescott Bush.

On October 20, 1942 the United States government seized Union Banking under the Trading with the Enemy Act. During that summer, The New York Tribune had exposed Bush and Thyssen whom it called Hitler’s Angel. Union Bank’s books revealed a myriad of Nazi money and holding companies. Officials realized they had only scratched the tip of the iceberg. On November 17, 1942, the government seized Silesian American Corporation and placed its operation under the Government Alien Property custodian office.

Following the war, authorities seeking to locate the Dutch Royal family’s jewelry discovered the transaction papers of the Silesian American Corporation in the books of Bank voor Handel en Scheepvaart. The bank manager, H.J. Kounhoven came under intense scrutiny and was shocked by the discovery. Soon Kounhoven traveled to New York to inform Prescott Bush. Dutch authorities date the meeting as soon after Christmas 1947. Two weeks later, the otherwise healthy Dutch banker died of a heart attack. Coincidentally, this was the method of choice of the Gehlen network for liquidating people. The Nazis had perfected a method of inducing heart attacks that autopsies could not detect.



Ken LAY?

On February 8, 1951, Thyssen died in Argentina. Following his death, the Alien Property Custodian released the assets of the Union Banking Corporation to Brown Brothers Harriman. The remaining shareholders quietly cashed in their remaining shares. Prescott Bush received $1.5 million for his share in Union Banking’s blood money.

This brief article has only scratched the surface of the sordid association of Prescott Bush with the Nazis as he had yet a third company seized from him during the war. In his first run for senator, Prescott was defeated after his position within the eugenics movement was disclosed. George the poppy has followed in his father’s footsteps and retained many of the same family connections with the Nazis. For instance, as chairman of the Republican Party he presided over the formation of the Ethnic Heritage groups of the Republican Party. This was a reward for the Nazi quislings from Eastern Europe for helping in the election of Nixon as president. When two or more ethnic groups were vying for control over a particular group invariably the group with close ties to the Nazis won out. George also shows the same intense interest in population control. Perhaps it was for his beliefs in eugenics, George appointed Draper as his expert on population. Or perhaps it was more of a reward for past services rendered by Draper to the Bush family. Draper was the former general placed in control of the military government‘s economic division after the war. Draper was a rabid racist and member of the Eugenics Society. He was also a former employee of Dillion and Reed, the large Wall Street brokerage house that floated the largest German bond offerings including one for United Steel Works. In his position as economic czar of Germany, he stopped the dismantling of an I.G. Farben plant and was in the ideal slot to protect his former clients that armed Hitler, including Bush.



ISRAELI BLACKMAIL???

The same close associations are apparent with Bush junior. One interesting pattern in international relations is ready observed that the Israeli government moves to the hard right whenever a Bush is in the Oval Office. Considering, Israel has one of the best intelligence agencies in the world and a perhaps the most extensive data base on the holocaust, could the Israeli hard-liners be blackmailing the Bushes? Do they have a smoking gun that would at once end the political aspirations of the entire Bush clan as well as place the family wealth at risk for damages suffered during the Holocaust? One researcher already says the family wealth is at risk in such suits; the ties are that strong.





Any reasonable person understands that the tragedy of 9-11 was allowed to happen. Only the White House can order the interceptors to stand down, once an aircraft deviates from its flight plan or contact is lost. Within 30 minutes of the time the golfer’s plane that decompressed failed to follow directions from the control tower a fighter was alongside and shadowed the plane until it ran out of fuel and crashed in the midwest. The story that no fighters were available is simply a lot of bullshit. There are probably no less than a dozen or more airports within range of New York and Washington DC with fighter squadrons on standby. Yet, Bush wants us to believe that the entire East Coast was left unprotected with no fighters to provide air cover including the restricted airspace over the White House. The 9-11 tragedy was the Reichstag fire and the so-call Patriot Act, the enabling act for another fascist government.

With American blood about to stain the sands of the Mideast why hasn’t the media focused on the merchant of death, who armed Saddam? They would need to look no further than George Bush, the poppy and Vice President Dick Cheney. Poppy Bush is rubbing his hands with glee counting potential profits for his Carlyle Group. The group holds stocks in defense industries that armed Saddam during the Reagan years and provided arms for the US military. This is the way the Bush family makes it money. Just ask Prescott. It didn’t take Dick long to learn that secret. After the first Bush administration in which Cheney was the head of defense, he became head of Halliburton.While at Halliburton, Dick sold hundred of millions of dollars worth of dual use equipment to Iraq.

Stand behind the young soldiers and wave a flag for them, as they are mere canon fodder for this fascist clique. Don’t wave a flag for the most corrupt administration in the history of the country that’s hell-bent on installing a fascist regime beholding to no one other than corporate interests.

Your freedom depends on it.

Coinciding with the Dawes Plan, which is discussed elsewhere in this chapter John Foster, Dulles arranged a large loan for Krupp. For the loan Dulles had called Leland Harrison, assistant secretary of state on a Saturday to soft pedal the item in the news. Harrison was infuriated because the department had issued a circular asking to see foreign loans before American funds were exported. Dulles knew however, that Harrison had no authority to stop the loan. Dulles wanted to avoid the State Department’s scrutiny as to whether German factories were producing military hardware. Sullivan and Cromwell at Dulles behest accepted the assurances of Krupp that all military hardware had been destroyed.

1933:
On January 4, 1933, Hitler was invited to the Schroeder Bank by a group of industrialists. The industrialists gave Hitler the money to overcome his financial problems in turn for a pledge to break the trade unions. Present at this meeting were two Americans John Foster Dulles and Allen Dulles.

Hitler assumes power.

Max Warburg selected by Prescott Bush to be the American Ship & Commerce Line official representative on the board of the Hamburg- Amerika Line. Warburg was a long time advisor of Hjalmar Schacht, the Nazi’s Economic Minister and an executive in the Reichsbank. Warburg was also a close friend with Montagu Collet Norman.

An agreement to coordinate all trade between Germany & America was reached in Berlin after negotiations between Hitler’s Economics Minister, Hjalmar Schacht & John Foster Dulles.As a result Oliver Harriman, Averell’s cousin formed a syndicate of 150 firms to conduct all business between Germany and the United States.

North German Lloyd Co. merged with Hamburg-Amerika Line in Hamburg. Christian Beck a long time Harriman executive was placed as manager of ‘freight & operations’ in North America for this newly merged company. Emil Helfferich, an ardent Nazi was appointed chairman of this new company called Hapag-Lloyd. Nazi security guards were now on all ships of the company.

William S. Farish was appointed chairman of Standard Oil by John D. Rockefeller. Farish was close friends with Hermann Schmitz, chairman of I.G. Farben. Farish hired Ivy Lee, to write pro-I.G. Farben and pro-Nazi propaganda and get it into the U.S. press. He hired Nazi German crews for Standard Oil tankers. In addition, he hired "Emil Helfferich," chairman of the Hamburg-Amerika Line, as chairman also of the Standard Oil Company subsidiary in Germany. Karl Lindemann, board member of Hamburg-Amerika, also became a top Farish-Standard executive in Germany. The interlock placed Farish and Prescott Bush in a small group of Hitler supporters. Both Emil Helfferich and Karl Lindemann were authorized to write checks to Heinrich Himmler, chief of the Nazi SS, on a special Standard Oil account. This account was managed by the German-British-American banker, Kurt von Schroeder. According to U.S. intelligence documents reviewed by author Anthony Sutton, Helfferich continued his payments to the SS into 1944, when the SS was supervising the mass murder at the Standard-I.G. Farben

Auschwitz and other death camps. Helfferich told Allied interrogators after the war that these were not his personal contributions-they were corporate Standard Oil funds.

1934:
The US Senate Nye Committee hearings revealed Samuel Pryor, chairman of Remington Arms & founding director of both the UBC & the American Ship & Commerce Corp. had joined in a cartel agreement with I.G. Farben. The committee also uncovered that the Nazis were armed with mostly American arms.

E. W. Webb, president of Ethyl Corporation was advised that Washington had learned of the intention of "forming a German company with the I.G. to manufacture ethyl lead in Germany. The War Department indicated that there was considerable criticism of this technological transfer. The Ethyl Company was then advised by the Army Air Corps that "under no conditions should you or the Board of Directors of the Ethyl Gasoline Corporation disclose any secrets or 'know-how' in connection with the manufacture of tetraethyl lead to Germany.

With Hitler in solid control of Germany, the profits from the Thyssen-Flick union soared to over a hundred million. Both Union Bank and the Bank voor Handel en Scheepvaart were overflowing with money. Prescott Bush became managing director of Union Bank and took over the day-to-day operations of the German plan.

John Foster Dulles was publicly supporting the Nazi philosophy. In 1935, he wrote a long article for the Atlantic Monthly entitled "The Road to Peace." He excused Germany’s secret rearmament as an action taking back their freedom. Knowing what he did about Inco and Germany’s munitions industry Dulles was misleading in asserting Germany’s, Italy’s, and Japan’s desires for peace. Later in the 1930s, Dulles helped organize the American First group. A month before Pearl Harbor he donated $500 to the group. Later he would claim no association with the group. Dulles continued his support of the Nazi line right up to the time Germany invaded Poland. Dulles excuse for the Poland invasion was much like blaming the victim for the crime.

1935:
Ethyl Corporation signed a joint production agreement with I.G. Farben in Germany to form Ethyl G.m.b.H. and with Montecatini in fascist Italy for the production of tetraethyl lead. The directors of Ethyl Gasoline Corporation at the time of this transfer: E.W. Webb, president and director; C.F. Kettering; R.P. Russell; W.C. Teagle, Standard Oil of New Jersey and trustee of FDR's Georgia Warm Springs Foundation; F. A. Howard; E. M. Clark, Standard Oil of New Jersey; A. P. Sloan, Jr.; D. Brown; J. T. Smith; and W.S. Parish of Standard Oil of New Jersey.

John Foster Dulles narrowly missed being indicted in a case of Union Electric Company of Missouri, a subsidiary of the North America Company. The SEC had discovered the company operated a slush fund to bribe legislators. The fund received kickbacks from its local lawyers and an insurance company. The firm had bribed the entire Missouri legislator. SEC general counsel Travis Lane cynically attributed the failure to the grand jury to indict Dulles was due to his charm.

Nuremberg Laws passed in Germany paving the way for the Holocaust.

1936:
The Schroeder Bank in New York merges with the Rockefellers to form Schroeder, Rockefeller & Company, Inc. Carlton P. Fuller of Schroeder Banking Corporation became president and Avery Rockefeller, became vice president.

1937:
By the end of January 1937, Dulles had merged all his cloaking activities into one client account, Brown Brothers Harriman-Schroeder Rock. Schroeder, of course, was the Nazi bank on whose board Dulles sat. The 'Rock' was the Rockefellers of Standard Oil, who were already coming under scrutiny for their Nazi deals. At the request of Prescott Bush Dulles had cloaked the Bush-Harriman dealings with the Nazis.

1939:
Hitler invades Poland the war starts in Europe.

Farish's daughter Martha married Averell Harriman's nephew, Edward Harriman Gerry.

Consolidated Silesian Steel Corporation was located near the Polish town of Oswiecim. When the plan to use Soviet prisoners as forced labor fell through, the Nazis began shipping Jews, communists, gypsies and other minority populations to the camp the Nazis had set up. This was the beginning of Auschwitz. The reason Auschwitz was located there was because of the abundant supplies of coal which could be processed into aviation fuel. I.G. Farben soon built a plant near Auschwitz to take advantage of not only of the nearby coal deposits but also of the slave labor supply available at Auschwitz. According to a Dutch intelligence agent, Prescott Bush managed a portion of the slave labor force in Poland.

Cornelis Lievense (banking functionary for the Nazis); Treasurer/Dir. Harold D. Pennington (of Brown Brothers Harriman); Dir. Ray Morris (of Brown Brothers Harriman); Dir. Prescott S. Bush; Dir. H.J. Kouwenhoven (Dir./Chief foreign financial exec. of German Steel Trust); Dir. Johann G. Groeninger (Industrial Exec. In Nazi Germany).

In the same month, the United States government seized two additional companies: Seamless Steel Equipment Corp. & Holland-American Trading Corp both ran by Union Bank.

In November, the Nazi assets of Silesian-American Corp were seized leaving the American partners to carry on with business. Seizure of the whole company would have been detrimental to the war effort.

On March 25, 1942, U.S. Assistant Attorney General Thurman Arnold announced that William Stamps Farish had pleaded "no contest" to charges of criminal conspiracy with the Nazis. Farish was the principal manager of a cartel agreement between Standard Oil and I.G. Farben. The cartel built an industrial plant to produce artificial rubber and gasoline from coal at Auschwitz to take advantage of the slave labor.

The Deutsche-Amerikanische Petroleum A.G. (DAPAG), the Standard Oil subsidiary in Germany, was 94-percent owned by Standard Oil of New Jersey. Standard Oil of New Jersey was represented in the inner circles of Naziism by Karl Lindemann, director of DAPAG and member of Himmler's Circle of Friends and by board member Emil Helfrich, who was an original member of the Keppler Circle. Karl Lindemann connections extended into the international banking area as director of several banks, including the Dresdner Bank, the Deutsche Reichsbank, and the private Nazi-oriented bank of C. Melchior & Company

1945:

This is the same firm Prescott Bush acted, as banker for. In effect, Prescott was Hitler’s American banker.

Allen Dulles sought out a young Naval Officer that had been put in charge of some captured Nazi documents. If the documents surfaced it would have revealed Dulles as a traitor. In a deal to bury the documents, Dulles agreed to finance the young man’s first political race. This was the beginning of the political career of Richard Nixon.

One out growth of the CIA's global intervention has been their involvement with the world drug trade. Thanks to the San Jose Mercury investigative reporter Gary Webb this issue has been placed before the American people. Webb's Article entitled Dark Alliance detailed the CIA's involvement with the drug trade in the inner city of the Los Angeles. CIA assets in other major papers soon attacked the article in an effort to discredit it and distance the CIA's long rumored involvement with drugs. The history of the CIA's involvement with dope dealing goes back to at least the Vietnam era and the heroin trade. It is this writer's opinion that the history goes back even further into the 1950s and the CIA's involvement in Iran. At least one other writer traces the CIA drug trade back to the 1940s when Colonel Paul Hellwell of the OSS brought heroin from Burma and sold it in U.S. ghettos.133

Although the CIA's media assets were successful in forcing the Mercury to retract the article and to fire Webb they have not succeeded in disproving the charges. For one reason there is far more than just the Dark Alliance article in detailing the connection between the CIA and drugs. To fully discredit the article they would need to discredit congressional testimony as well. The first inkling of the CIA drug connection came about on March 18, 1982 when the CIA's Inspector General, Fred Hitz admitted before a congressional committee that the CIA maintained relationships with companies and individuals that the CIA knew to be involved in the drug trade. Even more damaging He informed the congressional committee that the CIA had requested and had received approval from Reagan's Justice Department clearance not to report any knowledge of drug dealing by CIA assets.134

The entire cover up of the Iran/Contra/COCAINE scandal has finally been fully and undeniably established by the release of the Volume Two of CIA Inspector General's Drug Report on October 8, 1998. The released was timed in such a manner to effectively muzzle congressional and public outrage. Just one hour before the release of this report the congress had voted to hold impeachment proceedings against President Clinton. The report had been available since spring and is essentially a confession by CIA that it engaged in a conspiracy to protect known narcotics traffickers throughout the Contra war years. The New York Times in an apparent confirmation of the Dark Alliance article picked a paragraph from the report that acknowledged that the Contra leaders in California specifically planned to use drug money for the Contras. The LA Times one of the most vicious critics of the Dark Alliance story has failed to print a single line over the newly released report. The report confirms the conspiratorial negotiations between the Justice Department and the CIA by first having agents, assets and contractors removed from their classification as employees in a move to remove the responsibly of reporting drug dealing to congress or anyone else. Thus confirming the earlier mentioned testimony of Hitz. In another portion of the report a memorandum written by DCI Robert Gates setting down a no nonsense policy against dealing with drug traffickers was described. The problem with the memorandum was, it wasn't distributed for 15 years.135

From the Streets of Little Beirut
Glen Yeadon



On January 28, 2003, amid the furor of the impending war with Iraq the British press briefly reported on Operation Ore, the most thorough and comprehensive police investigation of crimes against children before being squashed by the Blair government. Besides implicating Rock guitarist Peter Townsend of the Who, the report claimed that senior members of Tony Blair's government were being investigated for pedophilia and the "enjoyment" of child-sex pornography. With the investigation reaching to senior members of his Government, Blair declared a news blackout on the story.

Moreover, the British report was not the first such case reported. In fact, it followed on the heels of a report from Portugal. On November 27, 2002, the press reported a scandal of pedophile ring run from a state orphanage. The Guardian reported that the scandal threatened to engulf diplomats, media personalities and senior politicians. Photographs of senior government officials with young boys from Lisbon's Casa Pia orphanage were among the evidence. More shocking however, were the revelations that systematic sexual abuse of children at the home had allegedly been going on for more than 20 years and had been known to police and other authorities for most of that time.

On January 14, 2002, Insight Magazine reported the charges leveled by Ben Johnson against his employer Dyncorp, a major defense contractor. Johnson charged that officials and employees of Dyncorp were engaging in perverse, illegal and inhumane behavior and were purchasing illegal weapons, women, forged passports and participating in other immoral acts. Johnson had witnessed his supervisors and fellow employees buying 12- to 15-year-olds as sex slaves.

While prostitution is the world’s oldest profession, the global sex trade is big business. The impact of illegal immigrant traffic in Canada is estimated at between $120 million to $400 million per year accounting for approximately 8,000 to 16,000 people arriving in Canada per year illegally. The estimate is from Organized Crime Impact Study, prepared for the Solicitor General of Canada. The majority of the illegal immigrants are forced into prostitution and come from Vietnam and China. Once smuggled into Canada the young girls are sold into bondage throughout a North America network. Moreover, Canada is not alone. Young Russians and Ukrainian women that wish to immigrate to Israel are often smuggled into the country destitute and at the mercy of their pimp.

More disgusting is the role the United States government plays in facilitating this global sex trade. Instead of banning the previously mentioned Dyncorp from further defense contracts, the regime of George W Bush rewards it in granting major contracts for the Iraqi war. Even more shameful is the wink and nod the state department grants the Saudis. The Arabian Peninsula has long been known to be purchasers of slaves. Mostly the slaves came from India or Africa however, with the advent of the oil wealth the Saudis have became more selective and are known as high-end buyers. The Saudi Arabian Government continues to refuse to sign the United Nation’s treaty on slavery and extradition treaties. There have been several incidents in the past where the media has reported a slave of a Saudi prince brought into the United States escaped. The State Department then intervenes and returns the escaped slave to the Saudi prince and the incident forgotten. The State Department exempts the Saudi princes from normal custom procedures. A child slave bought by a Saudi prince can be delivered to his plane and allowed to depart without the required passport for the child. One fortunate victim that became entangled in the Mid East sex ring was the former Miss USA Shannon Marketic. She had been lured to Brunei by what she believed was legitimate modeling work. Being a high profile case she was returned to the United States and filed suit. The former Miss USA lost her lawsuit as the State department granted immunity to her abductors.

Many of the pictures of the young children peering out from posters and milk cartons that have disappeared in the United States have fallen victim to this global sex trade. They indeed may have been lucky for there is a much more sinister side to child molestation. In fact, it is undoubtedly the most macabre and hideous aspect to evolve out of the United States use of Nazi scientists, the CIA’s Project MK-ULTRA. This grotesque project of ghastly experiments in mind control evolved out of earlier CIA projects in search for a truth serum. The roots for such a project date back to the wartime OSS search for a truth serum. During the war, the OSS began a search for a truth serum to use on captured U-boat prisoners. The experiments were limited and the only drug they found to produce desirable results was cannabis. According to author Anthony Cave Brown in the Last Hero, the experiments were limited to testing on one person. Additionally Dr. George Estabrooks of Colgate University carried out experiments paralleling the Nazis brain washing methods by drugs and hypnosis. Estabrooks connections with the army, CID, FBI and other agencies are still shrouded in secrecy. However, it seems that the doctor could not help but talk about his experiments occasionally and what is know of
his work comes from his loose tongue.

During the war, the allies had captured documents in the Nazis experiments on inmates of Dachau with mescaline and other psychedelics in a search for a truth serum. The doctor in charge of the Dachau experiments was Dr. Hubertus Strughold. Strughold was also involved in barbaric high altitude experiments on inmates of Dachau. Strughold was brought to the United States under the Project Paperclip and became America’s father of space medicine. His use of mind-altering drugs on inmates provided the foundation for the CIA’s research into truth serums and mind control.

The United States first foray into truth serums started in 1947 as Project CHATTER initiated by the navy. The project was terminated in 1953. In 1949, at the Edgewood Arsenal the CIA began project Bluebird using Nazi scientists to find a truth serum. Project Bluebird evolved into Project Artichoke and eventually into MK-Ultra. MK-UTRA was much larger in focusing on mind control and the means to achieve it was not limited to drugs and psychedelics. MK-ULTRA experiments including using hypnosis, lobotomy, electroshock, sensory deprivation, ESP, and drugs experiments in hypnosis, lobotomy, electroshock, sensory deprivation, ESP, drugs and sexual abuse.

Ironically, the CIA’s first widespread use of sex came from a program to blackmail United States politicians conducted by Edwin Wilson. The political targets were enticed to live out their sexual fantasies in the flesh. With hidden cameras ready the unsuspecting politician would be filmed, which would later be used to blackmail him into supporting the agency’s projects and views. Wilson's skill in these matters dated back to the early 1950s, when he took over a network of homosexual and pedophile rings from CIA asset and McCarthy Committee counsel Roy Cohn.

While MK-ULTRA focused primarily on the use of drugs for mind control other CIA projects evolved to use trauma to induce control or the victim’s mind such as Project Monarch. Project Monarch officially began in the early 1960s, although unofficially at a much earlier date. Monarch may have evolved out of MK-SEARCH subprojects such as SPELLBINDER, which was a program to create the Manchurian candidate or sleeper assassins that could be activated with code words.

MK-ULTRA still remains classified as top secret. Officially, the CIA refuses to acknowledge it. In the aftermath of Watergate, the CIA released voluminous documents under the Freedom of Information act on MK-ULTRA and other projects. Several good books soon followed the release. Perhaps, the closest admission of the program came in an interview of William Colby by Anton Chaitkin of the New Federalist. When directly asked what about MONARCH, Colby angry replied "We stopped that between the late 1960's and the early 1970's." Knowledge of Project MONARCH comes from its victims. The first to surface was Candy Jones, a model with the birth name of Jessica Wilcox. Jones apparently fit the physiological profile as to be one of the initial experiments of MK-ULTRA. Her story was told in the book The Control of Candy Jones.

The most publicized case is the story of Cathy O'Brien told in the book TRANCE Formation of America: The True Life Story of a ClA Slave. O'Brien is the only vocal and recovered survivor. Like many others, Cathy was introduced to the program by her perverted father. Cathy covers an almost unbelievable array of conspiratorial crime: forced prostitution (white slavery) with those in the upper echelons of world politics, covert assignments as a "drug mule" and courier. Another survivor, Paul Bonaci who survived two decades of torture under Project MONARCH has disclosed strong corroborating evidence of wide-scale crimes and corruption from the municipal/state level all the way up to the White House. He has testified about sexually abused males selected from Boy's Town in Nebraska and taken to nearby Offutt AFB. At Offutt, they were subjected to intense MONARCH programming, directed mainly by Commander Bill Plemmons and former Lt. Col. Michael Aquino.

Monarch programming involves traumatizing the victim in order to create multiple personalities in the victim. Sexual molestation and the occult are standard tools for the Monarch programmer. There are several levels of Monarch programming.


Alpha is regarded as general programming within the base personality.

Beta programming or sexual programming eliminates all learned moral behavior and stimulates the primitive sexual instinct, devoid of inhibitions.

Delta is known as killer programming. Subjects are devoid of fear and are very systematic in carrying out their assignment. Self-destruct or suicide instructions are layered in at this level.



Other levels of programming generally concern some method of self-destruction or evasion if the victim was ever captured after completing their assignment. The initial stages of programming usually begin somewhere in the first six years of the victim’s life. Due to the trauma induced by electro-shock, sexual abuse and other methods the vicitms’ mind splits into alternate personalities to cope with the trauma. Formerly referred to as Multiple Personality Disorder, it is presently recognized as Dissociative Identity Disorder and is the basis for MONARCH programming. Further conditioning of the victim's mind is enhanced through hypnotism, double-bind coercion, pleasure-pain reversals, food, water, sleep and sensory deprivation, and with various drugs.

In order to keep Project ULTRA and its associated projects secret the CIA segmented the research between several universities, hospitals and prisons. The Canadians are still coming to grips with the house of horrors found inside Dr. Cameron’s Montreal labs. Cameron’s research was sponsored by the CIA. In fact Cameron's involvement may be the best documented case of mind control by the CIA due to the civil suit of Orlikow, et al. v. United States. In 1988, the court ordered the U.S. Justice department to pay the plaintif $750,000. In addition the Canadain goverment was assessed $8 million dollars for damages.


The final stage of programming usually occurs on military bases to insure security. Several bases are implicated with Monarch programming. Two bases have been exposed in the past by incidents Offutt and the Presidio in the 1980s. The Presidio case dates back as far as 1982, when a military doctor warned the army of the danger to children in its day care center. The army failed to follow its own regulations in allowing the children to go on field trips off base without the parents consent. On August14, 1984, the FBI and officers from the army’s criminal investigation division raided the home of Lt. Col. Michael Aquino looking for evidence of child molestation.

The Presidio case attracted the attention of investigative reporter and radio talk show host, Mae Bruessell. During her investigation of the case, she received several death threats. Her daughter was killed in a car wreck that she attributed as a hit. Before concluding her investigation, Mae was struck with a fast onset of cancer. The reader should note the CIA has developed a fast acting cancer virus. Mae’s death may have been induced rather than from natural causes.

Linked with both Offutt and the Presidio cases is Lt Colonel Michael Aquino. Aquino founded the Temple of Set, an offshoot of Anton LaVey's Church of Satan. He was attached to the DIA's Psychological Warfare Division and holds a top secret security clearance for his work in military intelligence and on classified psychological warfare. . Aquino is obsessed with Nazi pagan rituals. He officiated at SS black magic ceremonies held at Wewelsburg, the Castle once used by SS chief Heinrich Himmler to create an SS order of Teutonic Knights based on the Knights Templars. His hypnotic manipulation of people made him an ideal candidate for the position of Master Programmer. Aquino along with others was arrested in the Presidio case for child molesting. The evidence was overwhelming of their guilt however, to the dismay of the victim’s parents all charges were dropped. Aquino has developed training tapes on how to create a MONARCH slave and worked as a liaison between Government/Military Intelligence and various criminal organizations and occult groups in the distribution of MONARCH slaves.

The dismissal of charges is common in such cases. On February 7, 1987, the Washington Post ran an article about a case of possible kidnapping and child abuse. Washington D.C. police had arrest two men after observing them watching over several children that were described as very neglected. The children ran in age from 2 to 7 and were covered with insect bites and extremely dirty. Their subsequent investigation led to the Finders, a cult like commune. The adult males were Michael Houlihan and Douglas Ammerman. They led authorities to an old warehouse. Inside the warehouse police found color slides, photographs and photographic contact sheets. Some photos revealed children participating in blood letting cult rituals involving animals. Other documents described "blood rituals" and sexual orgies involving children, and an unsolved murder in which the Finders might be involved. Additional documents revealed detailed instructions for obtaining children for unspecified purposes. The instructions included the impregnation of female members of the community, purchasing children, trading and kidnapping.

Several telex messages were also found in the warehouse. One such telex ordered the purchase of two children in Hong Kong to be arranged through a contact in the Chinese Embassy. There was a file called "Pentagon Break-in," and references to activities in Moscow, Hong Kong, China, Malaysia, North Vietnam, North Korea, Africa, London, Germany, "Europe" and the Bahamas. Other documents identified interests in high-tech transfers to the United Kingdom, numerous properties under the control of the Finders, interest in terrorism, explosives, and the evasion of law enforcement. The warehouse also had a video room, apparently used for indoctrination.

All the findings by the local police were verified by US. Customs officials. The US Custom officials soon ordered a full investigation and obtained search warrants for various locations. The investigation brought in the FBI as well. Nevertheless, this was as far as the investigation ever got. All law enforcement agencies involved including the local police, the US Custom’s officials and the FBI were ordered to halt their investigations by the Department of Justice on grounds of national security. The matter was turned over to the CIA an "internal security matter," since the "Finders" is and has been a domestic and international covert operation of the Central Intelligence Agency. The investigations were immediately halted, the evidence suppressed and the abused children returned to their handlers, who had been arrested. To date the only media outlet that has published the details behind the halting of the investigation has been US News and World Reports.

There have been other reports suggestive of a connection between child abuse and top officials. On June 29, 1989, the Washington Times, shook the Bush White House to its very roots with the front page headline "Call Boys Took Midnight Tour of White House.'' The paper reported, ``A homosexual prostitution ring is under investigation by federal and District authorities and includes among its clients key officials of the Reagan and Bush administrations, military officers, congressional aides and U.S. and foreign businessmen with close ties to Washington's political elite.''

At the center of the scandal was Craig Spence, a Republican powerbroker known for his lavish ``power cocktail'' parties. Among the rumors circulating was a rumor indicating that over 200 of Washington’s elite had used the call boy service. Spence’s entire mansion was covered with two way mirrors, hidden microphones and cameras. The White House including President Bush refused to answer questions or discuss the incident. At the same time, another story implicating the President in child abuse was breaking in the heart of the country. The story centered on the failure of the Franklin Community Credit Union in Omaha.

For roughly a decade stories linking Larry King the director of Franklin to child molestation had surfaced in and around the Omaha area. The failure of the Franklin Credit Union began to expose the murky past of King that had been shrouded in fog. Besides being involved in the illegal Iran-Contra scandal, rumors of King’s involvement with child abuse came forth. King was one of the rising stars in the Republican Party. He sung the national anthem at the national convention in Dallas. He was known for the lavish parties he held including the one at the famed South Fork Ranch from the TV series Dallas. King held parties around the country including Washington D.C. Always present at these parties were young children of both sexes from King’s stable of prostitutes.

For years, rumors had surfaced about child abuse, drugs and King in the Omaha area. King had an ample supply of young boys from Boys Town, others he procured from the streets of Omaha. Police from as far as Kansas City were aware of his activities. Nevertheless, in Omaha King was protected. The chief of police in both Omaha and Des Moines, Iowa were frequent guests at King’s parties in Omaha. King had the backing of Omaha’s elite behind him includ

including the staunchly conservative local paper. Indeed King wielded enough power to even shut down an investigation by the state attorney general under Democratic Governor Exxon. King even had an ally in the FBI officer in charge of the Omaha office. Moreover, there were abundant rumors that one did not want to incur King’s displeasure.Several murders were rumored to have been committed by King to protect his child molestation and drug businesses. In fact, at least fifteen mysterious deaths are connected with the Franklin case. It was clear from the beginning that both the local and federal grand juries were being used as a tool to cover up the child abuse surrounding King and the Franklin case. Likewise, the FBI was part of the cover up. Several of the victims recanted their testimony after being threaten by the FBI. The victims that refused to recant were charged with perjury and sentenced to prison.

It was only with the failure of Franklin Credit Union that the whole story surrounding Larry King came out due to one man’s dogged determination. John DeCamp, a former senator from the Nebraska unicameral legislator pursued the case relentlessly in the legislator. In fact, DeCamp was sternly warned by his friend, the former CIA director William Colby to give up the case before he met with a death. Shortly after warning DeCamp, Colby was found dead. Although Colby’s death was attributed to accidental drowning it was more likely he was murdered. Instead of giving up his investigation and determination to uncover the truth about King’s pedophile ring DeCamp chose the only remaining option with the blessing of Colby. He wrote a book about the case: The Franklin Cover Up. Once published, DeCamp’s death would only call more attention to the Franklin case.

In page after page, DeCamp describes the gruesome lives of the victims of King’s pedophile sex ring. Some of the cases preceded the Franklin failure by over a decade. Many of the children described satanic rituals that they were forced to attend, some of which involved sacrificing infants and young children. Children attending these sacrifices were warned that if they ever told anyone they would be the next to be sacrificed. In addition, they told of being flown to locations around the country in King’s private plane to parties where they were expected to take part in any sexual acts demanded of them.

Why did such a case in the center of America’s heartland prompt such a high level source as the former CIA director to warn his friend? Moreover, why was there so many mysterious deaths connected with the case? While the case made the headlines in regional papers, it never attracted the attention of the national media. Most people have never heard of Larry King. The answer to the questions lies in King’s connection to the top power center of the Republican Party and the Bush administration. Both Bush’s attorney general and secretary of treasure had to be aware that the FBI was involved in a massive cover up in Omaha. Even the flight logs of King’s airplane had disappeared entangling the FAA in the cover up.

Not only did King’s pedophile ring lead to the top echelons of the Republican Party it also lead to the top of the Bush administration and the Oval Office. Several of the children in Kings prostitution ring recount stories of seeing George Bush at some of King’s Parties. While an outsider would not suspect anything amiss, the children in the ring would know what was taking place. At least one of King’s young prostitutes reported that at one party, she saw George Bush pay King and then depart with a young black man. The President was a pedophile and involved in a pedophile ring, the story had to be squashed at all cost. King is currently serving fifteen years for the failure of the Franklin Credit Union. At least two of his victims have been wrongly imprisoned for refusing to recant their testimony. Meanwhile pedophiles like George Bush are free and able to abuse other children all in the name of national security.
