The Dismantling of The Guardian Office

Operation Chaos

by Virginia McClaughry

Intelligence symbol - L. Ron Hubbard Intelligence Its role

“Intelligence might better be considered “eyesight and foresight”.
A much better symbol for Intelligence would be AN EYE IN A CRYSTAL BALL.“
– L. Ron Hubbard, 8 June, 1973, Intelligence, Its Role

.

The first thing I should say is that while the organization called the Guardian’s Office was certainly corrupt from the very beginning, there were individuals within it (particularly in intelligence) that did actually occasionally do some good work.

It is one particular area of that good work (in investigations) that this article will focus on, an area that led directly to the dismantling and ultimate demise of the Guardian’s Office.

But first, in order to properly understand the proper importance of what they ‘stepped on’, a fair amount of history study is necessary. For those who are already somewhat familiar with my other articles concerning drug-trafficking, you are welcome to jump to sections “Simple Timeline” or “What Happened” but you still may want to read the entire history section anyway because there are a number of connections and additions that are not in my other posts or articles.

 

Intro and History

 

Section 1. Operation Gladio

Operation_Gladio_symbol

After WW II ended, the British decided to create “stay-behind” paramilitary organizations, with the aim of countering communism through sabotage, guerrilla warfare, assassinations and coups. Arms caches were hidden, and loyal members recruited – mainly hardline anticommunists, including many Nazis.

The stay-behind armies were created and trained with the experience and involvement of former British Special Operations Executive officers.  It was a guerrilla warfare network with arms caches. It was code-named Operation Gladio after the first “cell” in Rome, Italy. 7

The existence of these clandestine NATO armies was a closely guarded secret for almost 45 years.

LOK_-_Greece

Some of the Gladio cells were –

Austria = OWSGV
Belgium = SDRA8
Denmark = Absalon
Germany = TD BJD, largely the Reinhard Gehlen network, Frank Wisner was his CIA handler
Greece = LOK, Lochoi Oreinon Katadromon – Mountain Raiding Companies
Italy = P2 Masonic lodge (Catholic), many members of the Italian Social Movement (MSI), including Licio Gelli – Vatican
Luxemburg = Stay-Behind
Netherlands = I&O
Norway = ROC
Portugal = Aginter
Sweden = AGAG (Aktions Gruppen Arla Gryning)
Switzerland = P26
Turkey = Ozel Harp Dairesi

The later CIA director Allen Dulles was one of the key people in instituting Operation Gladio and Frank Wisner (who had previously been the OSS Chief of Special Intelligence for Istanbul, Turkey) oversaw the actual creation of the stay-behind networks all over Europe.

Most of Gladio’s operations were financed by the CIA – the CIA got the money from smuggling illegal drugs into the United States.

Another one of the earliest Operation Gladio cells was in Las Palmas, set up in 1948. One thing it did was drug trafficking. 8

Las Palmas

International Gladio units were being trained in Britain and by US instructors at the military base in Las Palmas from 1966 to the mid-70s.

What were Gladio people being trained in primarily?

Internal subversion.

The main strategy being employed by those we call ‘the Slavemasters’ was the so-called “strategy of tension”.

The aim of the strategy (the principle tactic was “terrorist outrages” carried out by ‘fascists’) was to spread panic and unrest and to directly attack those rising against the slavemasters in any way, and provoke them into an armed response, which would both justify increased state power under the pretext of a “national emergency” and isolate the rebellious types from popular support. 12

Right exactly at that time (1966) L. Ron Hubbard began spending a rather considerable amount of time in Las Palmas. While there, he established the Guardian Office and it’s Intelligence Bureau on 1 March 1966. Note: This was the vehicle for orchestrating the carrying out Hubbard’s Fair Game policies that still live on today behind the new storefront version of the Guardian Office called the Office of Special Affairs.

From 1957-68, Miles Copeland, one of Hubbard’s intelligence handlers, was stationed in Beirut, Lebanon. Miles was engaged upon starting his own “private CIA” particularly starting in 1966. 10

Miles had a long history of “unconventional” political warfare methods that he sampled as part of his incessant meddling in other countries affairs. One of which was using religious front groups like Scientology and Hubbard (an arrangement between Miles and Hubbard had already began in the early to mid 1950’s with the formation of the Founding Church of Scientology)

As you can see, it’s not a difficult feat to figure out where Hubbard got the idea to establish his “private CIA” parallel (the Guardian’s Office).

Later on in 1966, Copeland contacted and recruited Adnan Khashoggi, a young Arab who was in the course of becoming both a “principal foreign agent” of the U.S. and was also already extremely wealthy on the commissions he earned from Lockheed and other military firms on arms sales to Saudi Arabia.

A real life Lord of War.

adnan_khashoggi_in_1976

Miles specifically states on p. 231 of his book The Game Player that this meeting “put the two of us on a ‘Miles-and-Adnan’ basis that has lasted for more than twenty years of business, parties, and a very special kind of political action.

Special is certainly one way of putting it, but note this line from a 1969 State Department report  –

Strategic importance and economic potential of Morocco warrant special effort to blunt Soviet drive.

Copeland expanded a bit on that on page 233 –

Adnan and I, separately had been called on by our respective friends in Langley [CIA] to… have an official off-the-record exchange of ideas on the emerging crisis in the Middle East, and come up with suggestions that the tame bureaucrats would like to have made but couldn’t.

You know, the special kind of ‘suggestions’.

 

Right after this –

 

Obviously on the heels of just such a ‘suggestion’, L. Ron Hubbard suddenly felt the need to buy the first of his fleet of ships and form the Hubbard Explorational Company Ltd. on November 22, 1966. It was formed with Hubbard and Mary Sue as directors – Hubbard being described as expedition supervisor and Mary Sue as company secretary. This was the actual beginning of what was later called the Sea Organization.

Hubbard and his Merry Band of Dupe Agents were now going to support MI 6 ordered CIA operations by going to sea. The covert hidden purpose of the Sea Org was to assist Operation Gladio. The Sea Org was a front organization engaged in MI 6 and CIA money smuggling, gun smuggling, drug smuggling, and political operations – whether all the Sea org recruits knew that or not is beside the point. That’s what dupes are for. To help provide a shield or cover for what Hubbard was really engaged upon.

On 20 December 1966 the first ship of the Sea Org was purchased, the Enchanter, which was later renamed Diana.

Shortly after that, the Avon River was purchased, which was later renamed the Athena which almost immediately became captained by “Mitchell Spence” who may or may not have actually been Scott Mayer using a cover name.

Athena

scott_mayer_captain_spence_athena_avon_river

Note: I believe that it may be Scott Mayer that is listed as “Mayer, CIA” – see CIA FBI NSA Personnel Active in Scientology which is a Library article examining a document listing government intelligence personnel within scientology. This document was seized as part of the FBI raids of the Guardian’s Office of the Church of Scientology in July 1977, and then entered into evidence as part of a court case against Guardian’s Office personnel dubbed The Go 11.

Hubbard then leaves Saint Hill (under a nice intelligence cover of being “kicked out” by Britain) and off he and his merry band of dupes go on their mission tasks, while his handler Miles Copeland takes off for Cairo where he is supposedly trying to forestall a war.

Knowing Miles, that’s not what he was doing there. More like making sure it happened. “It” being the 1967 Six Day Egyptian-Israeli Six Day War.

Miles cover story of trying to ‘stop’ that war is made even more thin by the fact that even though he failed at this imaginary endeavor, he gets lots of brownie points in the CIA and per page 239 of The Game Player, Miles was able to now –

…accelerate the attempt I had already started to establish a ‘private CIA’ by use of confidential arrangements with politically astute members of the client companies.

Isn’t that just the most generic thing you ever heard? Sounds so innocent. It wasn’t, not by any stretch of the imagination.

By February of 1968, L. Ron Hubbard had formed a secret Panamanian Company called Operation & Transport Limited, through the Panamanian Counsel in Valencia, Spain. Strangely large sums of money started flowing through this shell corporation and then Hubbard began sailing his ships conveniently to ports (such as Greece and Morocco) where Miles and other intelligence agencies were conducting operations supposedly in order ‘to prevent Communism and uphold democracy.’

Contrary to certain mouthpieces poo-pooing of Hubbard’s very specific timing in arriving in Greece as being in concert with CIA activities, I offer the following as food for thought.

This was particularly true when, after the death of President Kennedy, the U.S. lent a hand to military coups in Brazil, the Dominican Republic, and Greece, nations which in turn became bases for further right wing activities in other countries. 14

It has also since been revealed that President Nixon illegally accepted funds from the Greek military Junta to help finance his election. In fact, Nixon’s go-to man Murray Chotiner actually threatened a Greek exile with deportation and likely imprisonment or even death should he reveal what he knew about this.19

In this day and age, mouthpieces that still parrot the sadly deficient propaganda lines of intelligence agencies, in turn covering for their masters from being subjected to public excoriation and ‘loss of confidence’ in their so called leadership, merely prove either their stupidity and gullibility or their complicity in covering up these heinous activities.

Neither are very complimentary.

It’s interesting to watch the slavemasters in action when they first get caught at doing something. The secret Gladio network first came to light in 1984 when one of it’s agents, far-right terrorist Vincenzo Vinciguerra, revealed its existence during his trial. This was denied and passed off as “crazy talk” until six years later when Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti revealed it to the Chamber of Deputies on October 24, 1990 having previously lied “unequivocally” denied it in 1974, and then again in 1978 to judges investigating the 1969 Piazza Fontana bombing.

The President of Italy, Francesco Cossiga, admitted his long involvement in the network in 1990 saying: “I am proud of the fact that we have kept the secret of Gladio for 45 years.

Italy insisted identical clandestine units had also existed in all other countries of Western Europe yet only Italy, Belgium and Switzerland carried out parliamentary investigations. The new main creator countries (led by Britain) of the stay-behind networks are our real “stars” of the denial show.

President George H. W. Bush refused to comment, while an unnamed U.S. government official familiar with Gladio said, “If there are allegations that the CIA was involved in terrorist activities in Italy, they are absolute nonsense” and that the continued existence of the force in Italy was “solely an Italian operation. We have no control over it whatsoever.

Meanwhile, British Defence Secretary, Tom King, said that he had never heard of Gladio. It’s what Tom said that’s really choice and probably a familiar tactic to any of whistleblowers out there on the internet.

Tom stated: “I’m not sure what particular hot potato you’re chasing after. It sounds wonderfully exciting, but I’m afraid I’m quite ignorant about it. I’m better informed about the Gulf.

* * *

 

One of the main ways that this Gladio ‘strategy of tension’ became manifest was in targeting specific populations with narcotics. Heroin in particular had long been used by both the British and Vatican slavemaster Denali’s – “the High Ones”, pun intended – to corrupt and marginalize populations such as China.

This was deliberately done in order to both distract and weaken the people into a condition better accepting of the ‘yoke’ the slavemasters wished them to wear.

It should come as no surprise to you that this particular ‘drug them into submission or death‘ tactic would find a new home in Operation Gladio.

It was, in fact, the primary method of financing its activities.

* * *

Intro and History

Section 2. The Vatican Role

One very prominent (and very Catholic) member of Operation Gladio was a sick little man named Liccio Gelli. Gelli had been top SS official Herman Goring’s liaison during World War II, which is not surprising when you consider the deep ties that the Vatican, particularly Cardinal (and later Pope) Eugenio Pacelli – see Why Psychiatry is more Religion than Science for much more about that man and the horrors he was involved with.

licio gelli.

Gelli, together with Frank G. Wisner, was deeply involved in Vatican “Ratlines” smuggling of Nazis to South America – hiding them from facing the justice they so richly deserved. Gelli worked with a Croatian Roman Catholic priest named Krujoslav Dragonovic.

The worst of the worst of these nazis, like Klaus Barbie, the “Butcher of Lyons,” required complex maneuvering. Barbie was being especially hunted by the Jewish survivors and friends – as he should be, he didn’t get the nickname “butcher” for nothing. While stationed in Lyon between 1943 and 1944 Barbie was responsible for the deaths of at least 4,000 resistance workers and Jews as well as the deportation of 15,000 people to concentration camps.

Spiriting him out of Germany itself had been accomplished through the combined efforts of the Dulles/Donovan OSS spy network (now the CIA) and the Vatican. But, for many years he remained hidden somewhere in Europe – all the way until 1951.

While Gelli was down in South America setting up Gladio terrorist units to install dictators (together with Frank Wisner and other intelligence agencies) he made friends with Argentinean General Juan Peron and enlisted his help in harboring Nazi war criminals.

Then, in 1951, through this arrangement with Juan Peron and the combined efforts of Vatican-loved SS Major Otto Skorzeny (now CIA) John J. McCloy, Dr. Fritz Thyssen and Dr. Gustav Krupp (both given amnesty and brought to the U.S by Wisner) one of the worst Nazi criminals of all time, Klaus Barbie, was finally successfully spirited out of Europe into Argentina and finally to Bolivia – his new home.

Once there, Klaus Barbie and Otto Skorzeny would then busy themselves helping to form death squads (more covert Gladio terrorist units) such as:

  • the Angels of Death in Bolivia – angel of death also happens to have been the monstrous Nazi doctor Josef Mengele’s nickname
  • the Anti-Communist Alliance in Argentina (the Triple A)
  • and in Spain, with Operation Gladio head Stephen Della Chiaie, the Guerrillas of Christ the King

The Office of Policy Coordination (OPC) was the espionage and counter-intelligence branch of the Central Intelligence Agency, created in 1948. It later merged with the Office of Special Operations in the time of Miles Copeland’s “arrangement” with Hubbard and scientology (1955) and became known as the DDP complex – DDP standing for Deputy Director, Plans.

The first big op (operation) that Kermit Roosevelt took part in happened right after Klaus Barbie had been installed in Bolivia, and all those hundreds of millions of Nazi money had been “released”.

The reason this op was important is that it began a series of installing of dictatorships (and eliminating governments the slavemasters didn’t like).

– – –

A quick reprise – Frank Wisner would be Ron Hubbard’s highest-level superior in the OPC when he started the Dianetics Research Foundation front group. In between Hubbard and Wisner there was Kermit Roosevelt Jr., who was recruited into the OPC that same year of 1950 and who ran the political action department. And then later…. Miles Copeland, the NOC agent (Non Official Cover) would be Hubbard’s direct handler in 1955 when he began the big Church of Scientology push.

This is all part of the idea of this big stay-behind “network”, and why it was being financed by such heinous sources like drug-trafficking and religious front groups soliciting exorbitant financial donations from their dupes followers.

– – –

Bernardino nogaraGelli shows up on these drug-trafficking money lines as well, because at the same time that all this is going on Pope Pacelli’s “special” financial assistant Nogara had retired, prompting the IOR (the Vatican Bank) to begin forming a “trust” of Catholic and non-Catholic financial advisors, who became known as uomini di fiducia, or “men of confidence.”Michael_Sindona3

One of those was Michael Sindona, educated by the Jesuits, who got his start by having a patron who wrote letter of introduction to the future Pope – Giovanni Battista Montini  – who was at the time Cardinal of the Archdiocese of Milan. In the Catholic World, one must* have a “patron” to make any kind of real advancement.

*See Backdated Overpopulation Myths and the Forging of the Bible for an in-depth discussion about what, where, and why this whole “patron” business started.

Michael Sindona began forging close Vatican banking links with the dictators of Argentina, Paraguay, Uraguay, Venezuela, and Nicaragua. Of the Nicaraguan dictator, Somoza, he told a Rome lawyer:

I prefer to deal with men like Somoza. Doing business with a one man dictatorship is much easier than doing business with democratically elected Governments. They have too many committees, too many controls. They also aspire to honesty, that’s bad for the banking business.

 

mafia-gambino-family-1950s

By 1957, Sindona had become closely associated with the Gambino family (Sicilian Mafia) and was chosen to manage their profits from heroin sales where he pioneered anstalten which is a term for a Swiss or Liechtenstein-based corporation with only one stockholder. It’s a very powerful financial tool if you want to move money around through anonymous conduits.

In his book HOT MONEY AND THE POLITICS OF DEBT, author Naylor writes –

In the postwar period, Sindona, a pioneer in the use of the Liechtenstein “anstalten” allegedly put his financial skills to work channeling CIA money to the [catholic] church and the Christian Democratic party, and laundering and reinvesting heroin profits for the Mafia.

It must have been extremely profitable because just two years later (1959) Sindona bought his first bank – the Banca Privata Italia – together with the Vatican IOR and it’s principal American bankers Continental Illinois Bank and Trust Company (where Mormon David Matthew Kennedy chaired).

Kennedy

This wasn’t just any old Mormon, Kennedy held a position with the First Presidency, the top governing body of the Mormon Church. Why is a Mormon working with catholic bankers? Because Mormonism is just another deliberately created “off-shoot” front group of the Catholic Church.

ratlines pope montiniA few years later, there was a meeting at Mr. Ortolani’s palace on Via Archmidede immediately prior to the Vatican conclave after the death of Pope John XXIII on June 3, 1963.

By the time of this meeting, American Catholic Paul Marcinkus and Michael Sindona had been hooked up by Montini to work together with the IOR – partially in preparation for all that lovely drug money that would come from their next planned assault on America – using cocaine.Dec._12,_1967_-_Paul_Marcinkus_with_ex-president_Johnson

Montini’s supporters (Gelli, Bertoli, Ortalani, Sindona, and Marcinkus) huddled and planned. Montini was selected and became Pope Paul VI on 21 June 1963, and at that point several careers are assured including that of soon-to-be Archbishop Paul Marcinkus.

One of these plans, with the power of the Pope behind it now, is where Lucio Gelli shows up again in our story-line. He was tasked to form a secret masonic organization called Propaganda Due or P-2 for short, of which he was to be the Grandmaster. He goes out and joins the Masonic movement in Italy in 1963, rises quickly through the degrees and soon has the authorization to form his own Lodge. This is what becomes Propaganda Due, an intelligence gathering/blackmail front.

Lucio Gelli in masonic lodge P-2 get-up.

Licio-Gelli-p2-.

P2 philosophy given by Licio Gelli:

The doors to all bank vaults open to the Right.

Gelli immediately begins accumulating files on people that he targets for membership and he blackmails these people into joining his lodge, systematically recruiting high members of Italy’s military and intelligence services including Orazio Giannini who is head of the country’s financial police, as well as leading industrialists and bankers.

At the same time, Gelli immediately opened a branch in Argentina, also soon having branches in Venezuela, Paraguay, Bolivia, France, Portugal and Nicaragua.

These are all covert Gladio organizations.

 

Some of the people he brings into P-2 from Colombia, are henchmen of Klaus Barbie (of course) as well as people from the juntas and death squads that Gelli had already been instrumental in forming previously throughout Latin America, such as Jose Lopez Rega.

José-López-Rega

Vatican Banker and drug-trafficking money launderer, Michael Sindona, became a member of Propaganda Due (#0501),[1] himself, as did messieur Ortolani.

Under the banner of the IOR (the Vatican bank) the Vatican admitted that it controlled in a partnership with Ambrosiano eleven ghost companies based in Panama, and guarantees all of their debts which at that time totaled roughly $1 billion.16

About the same time as that admission, the intrigue surrounding Vatican Pope supported Liccio Gelli’s Propaganda Due or P-2 lodge breaks, and the press latches on to the whole affair, exposing the entirety of the membership rolls publicly.

…In 1981 police raided the office of illegal masonic lodge Propaganda Due (P2), finding evidence that implicated Calvi. After a trial he was sentenced to four years in prison, but was released on appeal. By 1981 it emerged that Banco Ambrosiano could not account for almost $1.3bn of funds, leading to Calvi fleeing Italy, before he was found hanging from a London bridge soon after. 17

The Italian government issued an arrest order for the archbishop and two bank subordinates as “accessories to fraudulent bankruptcy,” but the Vatican, an independent state, refused to comply and cited diplomatic immunity. The Italian high court agreed, allowing the archbishop to avoid standing trial.

“I may be a lousy banker,” he said during the height of the probe, “but at least I’m not in jail.”

I refer you to the Jesuits own materials (they’re kind of the ‘Sea Org’ of the Vatican) – two of the things that they must not be subject to were courts and taxes –

No Jesuit can submit to be examined before a court of justice, in civil or criminal cases, without special permission of his Superiors; and in certain cases no Superior can grant permission: such as criminal or defamatory cases. 18

When Sindona’s compatriot in what are arguably crimes against humanity, Paul Marcinkus (then head of the IOR 1971-89) was later caught in the scandal showing the Vatican had backed and profited from the cocaine trade, know what he said?

“You can’t run a church on Hail Mary’s.”

 

Apparently, though, what you “can” do is run it on murder, slavery, and drug trafficking profits. Nothing has changed with those crazy fucks Catholic leaders – they’re still as insanely power and greed driven as ever.

Intro and History

Section 3. Setting up the “New” Drug Smuggling Network

Operation Gladio’s first cell (the one that was primarily headquartered in Rome, home of the Vatican) played a key role in CIA drug trafficking, especially through the heavily Catholic Mafia played a key role in CIA drug trafficking.

Specifically chosen men-of-confidence (for the Vatican) “Lucky” Luciano, Calogero Vizzini and Nicolo Rizzuto worked with the CIA and Operation Gladio to help organize an international drug distribution network between Vietnam, France, and the United States.13

In 1948, CIA Director Roscoe Hillenkoetter sent Irving Brown to France to facilitate the drug trafficking operation.

Irving Brown Labor Leader and CIA spy (right)

The infamous George White of later MKULTRA sex and LSD experiments showed up* in Marseille the following year – 1948. White had been an OSS agent (later CIA) and was continuing to utilize the cover of his job at the FNB (Federal Narcotics Bureau) to help keep the slavemaster dope-smuggling profits coming.

*see section on George White a little later on here.

Irving Brown recruited and hired Corsican mafia thugs and paid them with CIA money starting in 1948 – he hired a “rugged, fiery Corsican” named Pierre Ferri-Pisani to recruit an elite criminal terror squad to work the docks. For the next four years this goon squad beat people up, terrorized them, and even killed a few until they had complete control of the docks.9

… the CIA broke the last barrier to unrestricted Corsican smuggling operations in Marseille. When control over the docks was compounded with the political influence the milieu gained with CIA assistance in 1947, conditions were ideal for Marseille’s growth as America’s heroin laboratory. The French police later reported that Marseille’s first heroin laboratories were opened in 1951, only months after the milieu took over the waterfront.9

 

Here is a photo of Irving Brown meeting with Arthur Koestler, who worked for British intelligence in the Information Research Department.

Arthur Kœstler (British IRD agent), Irving Brown (CIA agent in charge of European and African left-wing) and James Burnham (CIA agent in charge of intellectual media) 2Arthur Koestler (left) and Irving Brown (right)

One of the things that various agents involved in actually creating and supporting this drug smuggling would do, is that they protected certain smugglers versus arresting and publicly villifying others.

Of course the criteria for choosing which was which wasn’t exactly based on reason.

eeny-meeny-miney-moe-dark

Accordingly, right after George White helped Irving Brown get things going, the American public was given some ‘heads on a pike’ – exactly like I just said. All in order to distract the public and to make sickos like George White look like a ‘good’ guy for ‘catching’ them.

Soon afterwards Mafia traffickers in the United States began to be arrested, but not men like Luciano, Gentile, or Coppola. 14

* * *

 

This particular drug-producing network was backed by all 3 factions of the slavemasters and their intelligence apparatus and they were specifically targeting the American population.

…The control of the Guerini brothers over Marseille’s heroin industry was so complete that for nearly twenty years they were able to impose an absolute ban on drug peddling inside France at the same time they were exporting vast quantities of heroin to the United States.15

It doesn’t get any more clear than that whom they are truly afraid of. Nor does it get any clearer just what methods are considered acceptable to them to destroy America from within.

Intro and History

Section 4. The French Connection

This Corsican network (inclusive of American and Italian Mafia elements) was being used as a form of “unconventional political warfare”. This network is what is commonly referred to as The French Connection.

In 1950, it got an even bigger kick-off from OSS-come-CIA agents Paul Helliwell, E. Howard Hunt and Lucien Conein who all operated throughout Burma, Cambodia, and Vietnam.

China has long been a bone of contention for the slavemasters, going all the way back to when the British were trying to enforce opium on the population back in the 1500’s or so. Things got so bad that then ruler of China actually tried to block the British shipments, leading to the first of the Opium Wars.

If you read my post Dark Matter you will see that one of the main chosen propaganda campaigns (and the main excuse given for why all this drug-trafficking was ‘OK’) is that all these nasty activities are because those dastardly Communists needed to be stopped.

The sordid truth of the matter was that the CIA, together with British, Russian (yep, it’s true) and Vatican elements were actually working to suppress the Chinese revolution and were actually backing the communist guerillas in the first place!

When Mao Tse-tung took power in China in 1950, he was a slavemaster chosen “democratic dictator” – and yeah, they really called him that.

Mao Zedong

Frank Wisner, CIA chief of Special Operations, immediately sent Paul Helliwell to Taiwan. Helliwell’s supposed job was to “help” Chiang Kai-shek to prepare for a future invasion of Communist China – but what he was really doing was getting control of of the drug routes.

Helliwell (for the CIA) created a pair of front companies to supply and finance the surviving forces of Chiang’s Kuomintang Army – he was put in charge of this operation. This included establishing Civil Air Transport (CAT), a Taiwan-based airline, and the SEA Supply Company, a shipping company in Bangkok.

The junction of Burma, Thailand, and Laos aka the Golden Triangle, is the site of the bulk of the world’s opium production and thereby the source of enormous fortunes for the French and later the Americans.

The Golden Triangle

the golden triangle opium.

Helliwell imported large amounts of arms for the KMT soldiers, the arms were ferried into Burma on CAT airplanes. CAT then used the ‘empty’ planes to fly drugs from Burma to Taiwan, Bangkok, and Saigon. There the drugs were processed for the “benefit” of the KMT and Chiang Kai-shek’s corrupt government on Taiwan.

For the ‘benefit’

air quotes

OSS China hand Willis Bird had settled in Bangkok, Thailand to head an office of Sea Supply, Inc. which began furnishing  weapons to opium‑smuggling Nationalist Chinese (KMT) troops in Burma. He coordinated CAT airdrops to KMT troops and ran an engineering firm that constructed short airstrips used for the collection of Laotian opium.

phao2-youngerSea Supply also provided arms and aid to Phao Sriyanond, the head of Thailand’s 45,000‑man paramilitary police force called the BPP (Border Patrol Police) and reputedly one of the most corrupt men in the history of that corruption‑ridden nation. For years his troops protected KMT opium smugglers and directed the drug trade from Thailand.

All on behalf of the Big Three of the slavemasters, you understand.

When the Thai people tried to stop what this was doing to their country and got a ban on opium sales and use proposed in 1956? Phao, good little step-n-fetchit as he was, made sure the ‘government’ balked and killed that initiative, claiming that it wouldn’t be able to find revenue sources to replace the lost funds.

 

You can imagine how the slavemasters felt about this getting so much public attention and the people rising up to interfere with their plans. So they did what they usually did, the 3 D’s. Distraction, Deflection, Disorganization.

They began as they usually did, by planting false or exaggerated reports to have a “reason” to go to war and take out Phao.

The reason?

That he had somehow suddenly developed “communist” leanings.

eye roll kara

By March of 1956, planted reports 29 from official cover CIA agents within the Thai Embassy started being sent to the State Department going on about the “communist” threat that Phao ‘might’ be becoming.

Within a year (1957) Phao was out due to a so-called coup engineered and assisted by the U.S. and the British.

It really goes to show the total falseness and duplicity that the slavemasters have towards those they consider their minions – those tasked to do all those “distasteful” and “vulgar” jobs for them. Just two years earlier the British Prime Minister was exchanging gifts with this man and he’s just everyone’s darling.

phao

But in the blink of an eye – he’s outta there.

The bottom line is that Phao fell victim to the eeny-meeny-miney-mo decision making process about who is ‘in’ and who is ‘out’ of the drug trafficking by the slavemasters.

eeny-meeny-miney-moe

None of this worked to deflect the real problem, however, because despite their best nasty back-door dealing efforts the slavemasters were basically helpless under the onslaught of public pressure from the Thai people who were determined to eliminate this infection from their country. (I call it ‘slavemaster disease’).

While the U.S. was busy trying to initially keep their golden pot of drug trafficking going during the next couple of years, Thailand began an aggressive campaign to eliminate drug smuggling within its borders. In Politics of Heroin, Alfred W. McCoy writes that Thailand “unleashed a full military assault on the opium trade” in 1959. This crackdown coincided with the relocation, under pressure, of KMT forces from Burma to towns in northwestern Laos “that would soon become opium centers and CIA bases,” as Peter Dale Scott explained in his 2003 book, Drugs, Oil & War.

CIA agent Terrence Burke became station chief in Laos in the 1960s, helping to oversee the training of an army of 30,000 Hmong tribesmen who were sicked after some other Laos people designated as “Pathet Lao Communists”. It shouldn’t surprise you to learn that ole Terry oversaw the Hmong growing opium as well.

Between 1946 and 1955 the French Mixed Airborne Commando Group (MACG*) and the French Air Force had managed the shipments of opium from Burma to Laos.

Technically, the French held effective control over the Southeast Asian opium traffic until 1965, but the British and the Americans were fast taking control of this portion of the route and by 1955 had taken it over completely, with the French version of the CIA (the SDCE*) coordinating with the CIA, MI6, and the Vatican IOR and its “men of confidence” to control the routes and, of course, divvy up all those drug profits.

*SDCE – Service de Documentation Extérieure et de Contre-Espionnage (English: External Documentation and Counter-Espionage Service). The SDCE was France’s external intelligence agency created on from 6 November 1944 and running until 2 April 1982 when it was replaced by the Direction Générale de la Sécurité Extérieure (DGSE)

The SDECE supported the French Operation Gladio network.

In 1947, Interior Minister Edouard Depreux revealed the existence of a secret stay-behind army in France codenamed “Plan Bleu”. The next year, the “Western Union Clandestine Committee” (WUCC) was created to coordinate secret unorthodox warfare. In 1949, the WUCC was integrated into NATO, whose headquarters were established in France, under the name “Clandestine Planning Committee” (CPC). In 1958, NATO founded the Allied Clandestine Committee (ACC) to coordinate secret warfare. The network was supported with elements from SDECE. 6

The SDCE basically joined in with the CIA/MI6/Vatican triad of drug smugglers in the Gladio network, exerting a sort of monopoly over the heroin trade under their op name for it – “Operation X.” During its peak years from 1951 to 1954, Operation X was sanctioned on the highest levels by Colonel Belleux for SDECE (who also had played a pivotal role in the creation of the Service Action and the MACG)  and Gen. Raoul Salan for the Expeditionary Corps.

Note: it is apparently not well known out there that Maurice Belleux actually is listed in the personnel database of the OSS – the predecessor to the CIA. See this PDF.

On November 9, 1991 historian Alfred McCoy (Politics of Heroin) interviewed Belleux.

I went to Paris and interviewed retired general Maurice Belleux, the former head of the French equivalent of the CIA, an organization called SDECE. In an amazing interview he told me that French military intelligence had financed all their covert operations from the control of the Indochina drug trade.

The French paratroopers fighting with hill tribes collected the opium and French aircraft would fly the opium down to Saigon and the Sino-Vietnamese mafia that was the instrument of French intelligence would then distribute the opium. The central bank accounts, the sharing of the profits, was all controlled by French military intelligence.

He concluded the interview by telling me that it was his information that the CIA had taken over the French assets and were pursuing something of the same policy. (edited)

According to McCoy, General Belleux stated that the US took over the role of France in Southeast Asia using the excuse that they were the ‘defender of Western interests against Communist expansion‘ – their typical propaganda line.

lansdale-and-diemBy the mid 1950’s when trouble would soon be brewing for the erstwhile French, it was Edward Lansdale, CIA agent, who would spearhead the PR campaign of supposedly breaking up drug rings, when in fact they were actually being simply taken over by the triad (CIA/MI6/Vatican) with the result of squeezing the French out of their position of control.

After submitting overdue term papers to my Yale professors, Karl Pelzer and John Whitmore. I started for for Southeast Asia in the summer of 1971. On the way, I stopped in Washington, D.C. to interview the legendary CIA operative, Edward Lansdale, General Belleux’s successor in Saigon.15

One thing you have to understand about Slavemasters, is that they don’t like it when their underlings start making too much money and getting too big for their britches, so to speak. Particularly when it comes to their staple funding – drugs – they have a tendency to completely turn on whoever it is and re-route the money to a “new” source that they can more easily control.

This is essentially what eventually happened to the Marseilles network, starting around 1954 when the ‘big 3’ first began exerting pressure on the SDCE to better conform to ‘their’ plans.

A covert shift of sorts was also underway, which would soon come to utilize Latin America for future drug-trafficking. The usual suspects from the CHINA drug-trafficking had various assignments to begin this conversion, while also attempting to take over control of certain governments that were less than friendly to the supposed “western” way. A way that was more European slavemaster than it was anything to do with the ‘west’ – that’s just another misdirecting PR slogan.

And ….they absolutely HATE when the people find out what they are doing and began cracking down on them – like what happened in Thailand.

So, by 1953-54 the CIA had drawn on old China hands with exposure to KMT traffic (Chennault, Willauer, William Pawley, Howard Hunt) to set up the overthrow of the Arbenz government in Guatemala*.

*See Scientology Roots chapter 18: New World Order in Central America for much more about Arbenz.

As part of this operation, CIA officer Howard Hunt, with his friend Lucien Conein and Conein’s friend WerBell of OSS operations in China under Helliwell, helped out in 1954 to set up what would eventually become the Latin American branch of the KMT-backed World Anti-Communist League. Four years later the chairman of this group was the Guatemalan attorney of New Orleans Mafia leader Carlos Marcello – who was in turn directly tied to Santos Trafficante JR., the new kingpin for the Big 3’s alternate drug-smuggling route. (see 1968).

Trafficante toasts Carlos Marcello, left, and Frank Ragano, right,1966

The combined forces of British and American intelligence (plus the Vatican) having already infiltrated the KMT, were the real movers and shakers behind this particular organization, which started out with a quite different name.

This happened to be the same year that Rev. Moon was also tasked by the CIA to start his “Unification Church” which would later yield the CAUSA front group.

On May 1,1954, in Seoul, Reverend Moon founded the Holy Spirit Association for the Unification of World Christianity, Reverend Moon’s faith community which became popularly called the “Unification Church‚ Äù worldwide.

– Unification Church website

This is key because it marks a point when ‘new age’ type religious front groups would start being used as part of Operation Gladio activities – including drug smuggling and money laundering. You will also note that this is literally right on top of when L. Ron Hubbard formed the Founding Church of Scientology (Washington D.C.) as part of his taking part in the ‘unconventional’ political operations run by CIA NOC agent Miles Copeland.

Meanwhile, as the triad (CIA/MI6/Vatican) began making it more obvious that they were taking control of the drug trade over in the Golden Triangle, then head of of the SDECE, Maurice Belleux (who was deeply involved in Operation X), objected to letting the Americans operate ‘sensitive operations’ on their own.

The newly arrived commander-in-chief and high commissioner for Indochina, General Jean de Lattre de Tassigny, shared this opinion and tried to brake what he referred to as “the CIA’s ambitions.”

Third from left, Gen. Jean de Lattre de Tassigny, later commander of Indochina forces.Third from left, Gen. Jean de Lattre de Tassigny

 

The CIA didn’t take too kindly to this, and that’s one of the main reasons why, in 1955, that CIA agent General Edward Lansdale began a [fake] war to liquidate the Corsican supply network, while Sea Supply (Helliwell) cemented ties with their already existing opium smuggling lines with the Chinese of the Golden Triangle and with the now corrupted Thai border police. Which, as we know, got trounced on by the Thai people forcing the CIA to move their operation into Laos temporarily, where CIA agent Terrence Burke was soon to be station chief.

This ‘war’ had as one of its results, the Vietminh defeating the French (I wonder if they ever knew that was backed by the other slavemasters….) and they were forced to withdraw from Indochina that same year.

The CIA had effectively pushed aside the SDECE (the French equivalent of the CIA) but it’s subordinate MACG leaders offered the Americans their entire guerilla force using CIA agent Lucien Conein as the go-between. Tricky, but the CIA didn’t go for it. They refused.

Intro and History

Section 5. Shifting Networks

After the fake “war” against drugs (Lansdale) Paul Helliwell had cemented drug ties with the Chinese in Indochina (fracturing the French control of the Corsican network in the process) together with Howard Hunt, Mitch WerBell and our favorite double-dealing Frenchman Lucien Conein. Hey, hey the gang’s all here…

Helliwell was then transferred to Miami in late 1959, early 1960, to provide business cover for the CIA’s Cuban operations – while concurrently still being attache’ for Thailand (until 1972). He and his motley crew worked on developing “relationships” with drug-dealing Cubans that they would use in the Bay of Pigs invasion.

 

werbell conein hunt and helliwell go to miami

 

Where Helliwell actually set himself up, was in Miami in the offices of the American Bankers Insurance Company, where as I said, he still functioned as the Thailand Consul for the CIA, as well as attorney for Sea Supply.

American Bankers Insurance was itself a most unusual firm; one of its directors, James L. King, was also a director of the Miami National Bank through which the Lansky syndicate reportedly passed millions en route to Geneva’s Swiss Exchange and Investment Bank. 14

Note: reference list can be found here also.

At the same time, Rizzuto (Italian mafia and CIA asset who outlived the other two original Marseilles traffickers) was put ‘in charge’ of converting Havana, Cuba, and the Caribbean into a international drug trafficking center. When Castro took over Cuba January 1, 1959, Rizzuto moved to Caracas, Venezuela – close to the Colombian cocaine sources.

*Ref – an unusual book called Double Truth

Note the bank name (underlined) in the above quote. That’s Robert Vesco’s baby. He controlled Geneva’s Swiss Exchange and Investment Bank and funneled tons of dirty money for CIA black ops (and other people’s) through it. So now we can connect something that Henrik Kruger didn’t know when he wrote his book – Vesco was controlling that and now we have him working together with Poller and Helliwell right at this time, with all those lovely (sarcastically speaking) heroin profits.

It was Robert Vesco who was the go-between for Santos Trafficante and Rizzuto. Vesco toddled off to Caracas to meet Rizzuto within the next few years after this new ‘plan’ was hatched. This would have been approximately 1962/63.

Note: Somewhere in here Paul Helliwell had started heading up the prestigious Miami law firm, Helliwell, Melrose and DeWolf.

All this is also the time period that Helliwell, who was in Miami then, hooked up with CIA agents Ted Shackley and Tom Clines and became the CIA money route to pay for JM/WAVE. which allowed Shackley to finance unofficial CIA operations against Cuba.

The other key point here that perhaps many of you don’t know, is that apparently CIA agent Terrence Burke (who would later become the #2 man in the DEA) was also working directly with Shackley around this same time as well.

Let’s not forget that Burke would also become CIA station Chief in Laos as part of the whole takeover of the Corsican drug route was going on under Lansdale just before this.

Upon investigation, I learned that the DEA spokesperson, Terry Burke, in charge of smoothing over this incident, had a long employment history with CIA dating back to the Miami CIA station under Theodore Shackley and Tom Clines at the time of the John Kennedy assassination. Subsequent to that, Burke served as CIA station chief in Laos! All this before Burke became the number two man at DEA. According to Gene Wheaton, retired military Criminal Investigations Division, Burke was “parked at DEA by Theodore Shackley to baby-sit Shackley’s CIA drug business.”

– from a resurrected article out of the internet archive

What Terrence was doing in Laos is best described by Green Beret Paul Withers, a recipient of nine Purple Hearts, the Distinguished Service Cross and Silver and Bronze Stars:

“After completing basic training at Fort Dix in the fall of 1965 [Withers] was sent to Nha Trang, South Vietnam. Although he was ostensibly stationed there, he was placed on ‘loan’ to the CIA in January 1966 and sent to Pak Seng, Laos. Before going there he and his companions were stripped of their uniforms and all American credentials. They were issued Czechoslovakian guns and Korean uniforms. Paul even signed blank sheets of paper at the bottom and the CIA later typed out letters and sent them to his parents and wife. All this was done to hide the fact that there were American troops operating in Laos.

The mission in Laos was to make friends with the Meo people and organize and train them to fight the Pathet Lao. One of the main tasks was to buy up the entire local crop of opium. About twice a week an Air America plane would arrive with supplies and kilo bags of opium which were loaded on the plane. Each bag was marked with the symbol of the tribe.“

One result of the smuggling takeover by the generals such as Lansdale, as we already discussed, was the end of the Corsicans’ Air Opium. The KMT Chinese and Meo tribesmen who cultivated raw opium either transported it themselves to the refineries or had it flown there by the CIA via Helliwell’s CAT and its successor, Air America, another agency proprietary.

The Coriscans were then forced to buy opium and morphine in Saigon and Vientiane rather than pick up the opium for peanuts in the mountains.

General Ouane Rattikone

Ouane-Rattikone

Replacing the previous Marseille operation, the first ‘new’ heroin refineries sprang up in Laos under the control of General Ouane Rattikone. South Vietnamese Vice President Nguyen Cao Ky in Saigon was initially in charge of smuggling from the Laotian refineries to the South Vietnamese; and General Lansdale’s office was working closely with Ky. Lansdale himself was one of Ky’s heartiest supporters, and Conein went along with whatever Lansdale said.

See Landsdale live – not exactly the most credible guy when he’s talking about this time period.

 

The CIA, with full knowledge of what they were doing, began pushing heroin on the GI’s being sent into Vietnam all throughout the mid-to-late 1950’s and the 1960’s. This new “heroin wave” rose to epidemic status by 1970, and Congressional reports indicated that some 22 percent of all U.S. soldiers sampled the drugs and 15 percent became hooked.

This is what Terrence Burke helped put in motion.

Burke’s mentor, or maybe more accurately we should say his trainer in Laos opium smuggling, was a marine vet named Anthony Poshepny. ‘Tony Poe’, as he was more often referred to, had taken over as head of the CIA’s 118A network in 1965.

The 118A network was born out of the initial efforts of CIA agent William Young, who had been born in Burma to American religious missionaries. Recruited into the CIA in 1958, he was posted in Bangkok. When the CIA was being forced to move their smuggling operations to Laos, it was Young that introduced Joe Houdicheck (Young’s CIA case officer) to General Vang Po, the chief of the opium-growing Meo tribesman.4

Vang Pao then ran operations using over 30,000 Meo tribesman out of the CIA air base in his territory at Long Tieng. He used them to smash any counter-intention to the CIA’s drug smuggling by calling detractors “communists” – like any good little slavemaster puppet would. Thousands of his own people died in this completely faked war.

What did he get in exchange for selling his people as canon fodder? The ‘Big 3’ allowed  – get that? allowed – him to make a fortune selling opium. One can only imagine what the Big 3 were making off this little venture of theirs.

Things went swimmingly for Young, Burke, Conein and various and sundry rat bastards (as my husband calls them) until the summer of 1964 when the Chinese set off an atomic bomb at Lop Noor – a dead (sea salt) lake north orfwhere all their opium operations were taking place.

The message came through loud and clear – the Chinese could just as easily drop a bomb on their drug network, hating them as they did for the centuries of enforcing opium on their people by the Vatican and the British.

This is another reason why you see Paul Helliwell etc. moving very quickly to establish banks, new drug routes, etc., after this.

But, in the meantime, the ‘brilliant’ handlers of the slavemaster’s intelligence networks, decided maybe they didn’t have very good intel on what China was doing.

Ya think?

how_dare_you_question_me_-_vincent

Orders came on down the intell lines, and the CIA was, for it’s part, to instruct Mr. Young to set up an intelligence network at Nam Yu, just a few miles north of Houei Sai, where most of the opium was routed to. He used a Kuomintang opium caravan to “insert agents” into China, which, I’m just sure China had no idea they were doing.

I swear, this is like monkey “intelligence”.

hey I just came up with a theory - monkey science

Where do they find these idiots?

Anyway, that is the network that Burke’s mentor Tony Poe took over running.

Here’s a pic of Burke among the “Meo” in Bia Chan, Laos from this time period. Clearly these people don’t have a clue what this ridiculously out-of-place man is getting them involved with doing to humanity – particularly Americans, remember.

terry mr suave taking a bath in bia chan laos

It’s just the height of hypocrisy that man Burke even dares to utter one word about that he was ‘against’ drug smuggling. And he gets a dang medal for it too? Let alone the fact that he’s busily trying to portray himself as a hero in his own personal white-wash books these days.

I find this –

Beyond disgusting.

 

 

william colbyIt was CIA man (and fellow rat bastard) William Colby that Terrence Burke had also crossed paths while station chief in Laos.Colby ran the special division for covert operations in Southeast Asia since 1962. His responsibilities specifically included the “secret” CIA war in Laos with its 30,000‑man Meo army. He shared that responsibility with the U.S. ambassador in Laos, William H. Sullivan, who would later preside over the Tehran embassy during the fall of the Shah.

Lucian Conein, one of Helliwell’s China boys, was Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge’s middle-man in the 1963 plot to overthrow South Vietnam’s President Ngo Dinh Diem (who was assassinated along with his brother Ngo Dinh Nhu, the Corsicans’ partner in the drug traffic).

 

See? It’s all about the drugs.

 

Not “communism” or any other ideology.

And yet…as I mentioned earlier…

Here’s Terrence receiving a CIA medal in 1965 for his “work” in Vietnam as CIA station chief in Laos – which is where the whole drugs-for-guns Sea Supply scenario was still going on. This is just prior to what would be Terry’s new assignment of getting control of the drug trade while supposedly ‘ousting’ the Brotherhood of Eternal love. (more about that later)

CIA operative Terrence Burke receiving star of valor from admiral rayburn

Now you know why Helliwell, Conein etc., all moved on over to Miami. They were setting up the other end of the drug route currently in place, plus the ‘new’ route they planned to create that would come straight from China – importing Chinese White (heroin).

Reminder –

pointing_finger_down

What happens next is right after the Chinese set off the atomic bomb in Lap Noor.

So…

It was shortly after all the previous maneuvering between Helliwell, Vesco, Trafficante and Rizzuto, that Helliwell started up Castle Bank and Trust Company in 1964 (first he established the Mercantile Bank and Trust Company). His partner, Mary Jane Melrose, was later an attorney for Resorts International, a Vesco-Lansky operation in which Nixon’s friend Rebozo was said to have an interest.

Note: Robert Vesco also incorporated a shell company called International Controls. [1965]

Helliwell opened the Castle Bank in the Bahamas to launder drug payoffs for Thailand poppy growers for the CIA and their partners-in-crime, the Mafia.  As Thai consul, his Washington correspondent was Rowe and Cork, close advisors to President Lyndon B. Johnson, and representatives of United Fruit (a Cabot-CIA connection), Libby and other large firms. Helliwell was also attorney for General Development Corp., Lansky’s real estate firm which was run for him by Louis Chesler.  As counsel for Miami Natl Bank, Helliwell laundered mob funds through Swiss banks.

Miami Natl Bank also financed the Outrigger Club, which became a meeting place for Santos Trafficante Jr., Philadelphia mobster and members of the Gambino family. Which don’t forget, this is one of our Vatican ties into all this drug trafficking. Vatican banker Michael Sindona was the ‘main man’ for helping the Gambino’s launder drug money (with a nice share going to the Vatican, I’m sure).

It was during William Colby’s tour in Vietnam (1967) that the heroin turned out by General Ouane Rattikone’s labs appeared in quantity, and with unusually high quality.

Lucien Conein worked with Colby on Operation Phoenix.

 

 

“Phoenix,” [Ed Murphy] said, “was a bounty-hunting program — an attempt to eliminate the opposition. By which I mean the opposition to us, the Americans, getting what we wanted. Which was to control the Vietnamese through our clients — the Diems, the Kys, the Thieus.”

…”In order to get into military intelligence school,” Murphy continued, “I and the other candidates had to write an essay on the debate about the Vietnam War. And the thrust of my paper was ‘What we do in Vietnam will come back to us.’ It was a one world thesis. Well, I go to Vietnam and I see the bullshit going down. Then I come back to the United States and see the exact same thing going on here.” 21

Operation Phoenix organized the torture and murder of any Vietnamese suspected of the slightest association with Vietcong – who were rebelling against the slavemasters and their obsessive drug-smuggling and, of course, were therefore positioned as “communist”.

According to Colby’s own testimony before a Senate committee, 20,857 Vietcong were murdered in Phoenix’s first two years. The figure of the South Vietnamese government for the same period was over 40,000. 20

operation phoenix - so called pacification by Colby CIA

That’s what Colby euphemistically referred to as pacification, and Lucien Conein described succinctly as a great blackmail program: “If you don’t do what I want, you’re VC.”

Voila! I win, right? These guys are disgusting. Truly.

Part of the reason for this continuation of the distraction war about supposed communists in Vietnam (and Colby launching Operation Phoenix) was because in 1967, the Turkish government announced plans to reduce, and eventually abolish, opium production.

In a clear example of both public relations hypocrisy and the use of well-meaning dupes within the U.S. government,  $3 million of U.S. taxpayer money was contributed  to build up a special 750-man police narcotics unit, finance research for substitute crops, and improve the managerial efficiency of the government regulatory agency, the Turkish Marketing Organization.

  • Murphy and Steele, The World Heroin Problem, pp. 12, 16.

Digging a little deeper, it’s obvious that this was just another way to put the final nails in the coffin of the French control of the heroin trade through the Marseille heroin labs – all while looking like they are “cracking down” on opium/heroin.

We’re “cracking down”.

While we’re building our new drug distribution network, that is.

Since Turkey’s poppy fields were the major source of raw materials for Marseille’s heroin laboratories, the impact of the Turkish government’s declaration was obvious.

  • Interview with John Warner, U.S. Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, Washington, D.C., October 14, 1971.

Southeast Asia was busily growing more than 70 percent of the world’s illicit opium, and the Chinese laboratories in Hong Kongstill under British nobility control, you understand – were producing some of the finest heroin in the world.

Moreover, entrenched Corsican syndicates based in Vietnam and Laos had been regularly supplying the international markets, including Marseille and Hong Kong, with opium and morphine base for almost a decade. Obviously this was an area ripe for expansion.

Thus, the international heroin trade was at a crossroads in the mid1960s. By death and default, the responsibility logically fell to Santo Trafficante Jr. to reorganize the traffic.

Trafficante – (left)

Santo Trafficante owner of Saus Sona' gambling casino 1958

So, in 1968, in the time-honored tradition of the Mafia and with the CIA/Vatican blessing – Santo Trafficante, Jr., went to Saigon, Hong Kong, and Singapore.

This while the CIA was busy lying to the world that it “did not support any form of smuggling after 1968“.

Del Rosario, a former CIA operative, had something to say about that:

“In 1971 I was an operations assistant for Continental Air Service, which flew for the CIA in Laos. The company’s transport planes shipped large quantities of rice. However, when the freight invoice was marked ‘Diverse,’ I knew it was opium. As a rule an office telephone with a special number would ring and a voice would say ‘The customer here’‑-that was the code designation for the CIA agents who had hired us. ‘Keep an eye on the planes from Ban Houai Sai. We’re sending some goods and someone’s going to take care of it. Nobody’s allowed to touch anything, and nothing can be unloaded,’ was a typical message. These shipments were always top priority. Sometimes the opium was unloaded in Vientiane and stored in Air America depots. At other times it went on to Bangkok or Saigon.15a

Now, as you recall, Robert Vesco was acting as the go-between for Trafficante and Rizzuto, but he was also working closely with Paul Helliwell who had started Castle Bank in the ’64/’65 time period, in order to facilitate the hidden transfer of huge sums to finance subversion, paramilitary operations, an occasional coup d’etat, bribery, and payments to foreign informants.

Mr. Kanter and Mr. Helliwell used Mercantile to establish accounts for many of their associates. In 1965, through his directorship at Mercantile Bank, he helps create Castle Bank and added it to this more and more intricate offshore banking complex. This included the Bank of the Caribbean Ltd., registered in the Bahamas in 1963.

Note: The accounts didn’t really kick into high usage until the Fassler/Perez and other drug trafficking networks began really cooking financially in the 1967 and 1968 time period.

One of the tricks that CIA/Vatican bankers began employing to hide the huge amount of money they now had at their fingertips, was by using cut out ‘investors’. I think this is another function that L. Ron Hubbard served as in his capacity as a long-term British/CIA intelligence asset.

What they would do is funnel money to a person, say…like Ron Hubbard, who would then open a Swiss bank account at particular banks, deposit the money, and then the money was used or ‘invested’ into CIA black operations even though on the books it still appeared to be there.

Tricky, eh?

The numbers of how much money was going in and out of Ron Hubbard’s scientology operation never matched balances in accounts or even the spending habits of Hubbard either as an individual or from behind the scientology corporate shells. A possibly good example is when Hubbard died in 1986 there was only 20 million in his estate, with even a low-ball estimate of hundreds of millions of dollars simply gone, never to appear again.

Hubbard never personally spent that kind of money – no way, no how.

Witness the recent testament by Lois Reisdorf saying pretty much exactly that.

He lived very modestly. Only had about 8 pairs of pants; shirts etc. His furniture wherever he lived was very modest – well-made and of good quality but nothing over the top. His cars were 2nd hand.  He did spend money on camera equipment, music equipment and had a collection of guns and a few musical instruments here and there. One example of his frugality was in La Quinta, California and he was going to have lunch with one of his lawyers (I believe), which was highly unusual and the Household Unit wanted to make lobster, which he had a fit over because it was way too expensive. Just one example.

Circa 1963, a little known company named Mary Carter Paint acquired Bahamas Developers Ltd. To this new interest in properties the company soon added property on the resort of Paradise Island. Wallace Groves, a partner with Mary Carter Paint in the purchase of Paradise Island granted “Covert Security Approval” (by the CIA) that had been applied for just before his purchase of Paradise Island. It was approved and not canceled until April of 1972. 22

In December 1967, Mary Carter Paint completed construction of the Paradise Island Hotel and Villas.

In May 1968, Mary Carter Paint sold its paint division to Delafield Industries for just over $10 million. As part of the purchase price, Delafield gained the right to the Mary Carter name. Thus, on June 24, 1968, what had been the Mary Carter Paint Company became Resorts International, Inc., a corporation engaged in developing property, as well as owning and operating casinos and resorts.

The Helliwell off-shore banking complex, especially Resorts International, were also used in subversion of the United States government itself. Illegally funneling money into the election campaigns of puppets and patsies they wanted in office – like President Nixon.

Intro and History

Section 7. The evolution of “drug enforcement”

The Federal anti-narcotics effort began in 1909 with the Opium Exclusion Act, which barred the import of opium except for medicinal purposes.

Subsequent laws enacted prior to World War II made it illegal to import or export narcotics in any form, or to make, sell, buy, or transport narcotics unless for medicinal or scientific purposes and under approval of the Treasury Department’s Narcotics Bureau.

The Bureau of Narcotics was then created in the Treasury Department in 1930 to enforce these narcotics laws, most of which were based upon the power of Congress to impose taxes. That’s an interesting fact, don’t you think? They slipped drug laws through underneath tax law!

Under most of these laws, merely possessing a narcotic without being registered with the Treasury Department was considered evidence that some illegal act had been committed to obtain it.

Reading between the lines here, one could say then that if you were a drug dealer that’s registered with the Treasury Department, it’s all good then. This tends to indicate that (just like telepathy) there are approved drug dealers and unapproved drug dealers. You can just imagine just who it is that chooses which is which, and why.

The first time penalties with some teeth were set, was after WWII ended (of course). Mandatory minimum sentences were set for most narcotics offenses in 1951 (PL 82-255).

Why did I say “of course”? Because this is exactly when the whole Operation Gladio and getting control of the drug trade was going on, and making the laws now have teeth appears to the public as if you are “cracking down” when in reality?

They were operating to increase the drug trade into the U.S. exponentially.

Five years later (1956) another law (PL 84-728) increased the penalties and would allow the death sentence imposed upon someone convicted of selling heroin to a minor.

Ten years later, with the big re-routing of the drug trade now going on, the Narcotics Rehabilitation Act (PL 89-793) that was passed in 1966.

It specifically provided that addicts convicted of drug offenses not be sent to prison, but instead be committed to medical institutions for treatment – which means…mental hospitals and other front groups operating under the cover of “religion” like Scientology’s Narconon. This was the real reason for the explosive growth of “drug treatment” centers, which were really operating as observation and experimentation units on the unsuspecting population.

Followed by the fact that in 1968 Congress amended the 1965 law to set penalties for the illegal possession of stimulant, depressant or hallucinogenic drugs (PL 90-639) – which is when all those drugs had to go black market hugely increasing the profit margin.

Let’s be clear here.

First the CIA and other slavemaster secretive front groups, spread the drugs around as part of MKUltra (Ken Kesey, Tomothy Leary, Brotherhood of Eternal Love, etc) get people hooked – which was all part of their ‘study’ – then if they got caught with it, they would have them sent to mental hospitals (also part of the MKUltra network) where they could continue their same studies on them!

It’s practically magical how that all worked out for the slavemasters. Not quite the case for the rest of humanity.

 

The BNDD gets created

1968.

Note that this is the same year that Santos Trafficante Jr. is tasked by the Big 3 (CIA/British/Vatican) to create a new drug smuggling network.

And it’s also the same year that the CIA stated that it “did not support any form of smuggling after 1968“.

No, it had the BNDD (and then the DEA) do it.

Get it?

It’s just the old shell game at work.

Ok. So…

As one of the last things he did in his presidency, President Johnson finished an executive reorganization of the Federal agencies responsible for enforcement of these laws. He combined the Bureau of Narcotics in the Department of the Treasury with the Bureau of Drug Abuse Control from the Department of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW), creating a Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs in the Department of Justice – the BNDD.

Please bear in mind that the head of the HEW at this time was John William Gardner, who had been previously intimately involved with the WWII Briish Tavistock psychological assessment operation. He’s listed on p. 162 of the OSS Personnel Database.

John W. Gardner - OSS

John W. Gardner – OSS

Also during his last year as Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare under President Lyndon Johnson (Vice-President Richard Nixon), in 1968 Gardner requisitioned the “Changing Images of Man” study. The book, Changing Images of Man, was the result. The project had become supervised by Willis W. Harman, (who also led the LSD studies at SRI).

*Please see the PDF in our Just Dox section of the Reading Library – Changing Images of Man OCRd  – This book is a result of a Tavistock Stanford Research Institute (SRI) early 1970′s “mind” restructuring project supervised by Willis W. Harman.

Gardner is also the man who, during WWII, went on to establish a center for processing OSS recruits in Laguna Beach, California – exactly where the Brotherhood of Eternal Love later made its base of smuggling operations. He then went on to Stanford Research Institute to head up more ‘research’. Stanford Research Institute having been controlled by the same hierarchy of men who were pushing Eugenics, as well as behavior modification and “testing” techniques.

Understand that this man, with his completely slavish devotion to slavemaster goals and plans, had been in charge of the Bureau of Drug Abuse Control for over 3 years by the time that his bureau combined with the other one into the newly formed BNDD.

He had been in charge of “drug abuse” control – while they are busy drugging the frack out of mental patients, college students, and anyone they could get their hands on!

Swoon - oh the irony

Now.

Understand that a whole lot of things began happening at once at this point in time regarding the controlled drug trade around the world, so I’m going to condense them for you (out of other much more in-depth posts and articles) into their own segments and then come back around and do a simple timeline of everything discussed leading up to what the Guardian’s Office stepped on that got them into such hot water.

As you can see, I just mentioned something called the Brotherhood of Eternal love, so we’ll start with them and what they were doing over in the Afghanistan area.

– – –

What’s the Brotherhood?

The Brotherhood of Eternal Love was a drug-smuggling group with heavy ties to the CIA through Timothy Leary, Billy Mellon/Hitchock, Richard Helms/Paul Helliwell and the Castle Bank – and this is where Terrence Burke and Paul Emerson Knight, our CIA agents posing as BNDD employees to ‘control corruption” come in.

Right when the CIA infested BNDD was formed, the Brotherhood began their big hashish smuggling phase at this time.

Brotherhood smugglers developed elaborate and successful means of getting the hashish into the United States. One of their earlier techniques was to hide quantities of 15 to 20 pounds of the drug within the interiors of fiberglass surfboards which they manufactured – the idea of Brotherhood member Mike Hynson.

Kandahar is one of the 34 provinces of Afghanistan and is located close to Pakistan.

Mr. Bartels. At some point late in 1967 or early 1968. members of the brotherhood developed their most important foreign contact for hashish.

According to subsequent indictment, this was the Tokhi brothers who reside in Afghanistan on the outskirts of Kabul, its capital city. 37

Aman Tokhi, the Brotherhood’s chief supplier in Kabul, also worked as a janitor at the U.S. Embassy, although he referred to his position as ‘maintenance supervisor’.

One that happened to be where all the official cover CIA agents were, no less.

[…]

Mr. Sinclair. But, that was not enough; and in the latter part of 1967, Glenn Lynd and two other brotherhood members traveled to Afghanistan in search of a permanent source of supply for brotherhood hashish.
Mr. Sourwine. That is Glenn Lynd, L-y-n-d ?

Mr. Sinclair. That is correct, sir. They purchased 125 pounds of high-quality Afghanistan hashish from their suppliers in Afghanistan for $15 a pound and smuggled it back into California where they sold it for $900 a pound. This was to be the first 125 pounds of nearly 24 tons of hashish smuggled into the United States from Afghanistan, Lebanon, and India by the Brotherhood of Eternal Love. 37

After creating arrangements with CIA ‘janitor’ Tokhi, they expanded their methods. Brotherhood smugglers flew to Europe; purchased Volkswagen buses, Land Rovers and other vehicles; drove them overland to Kandahar, Afghanistan—later to become the birthplace of the Taliban (another ‘gift’ to humanity from British and American intelligence) —and then shipped them home to California from Karachi, Pakistan.

During the next several years, the Brotherhood of Eternal Love was shipping up to a dozen hash-stuffed Volkswagen buses and Land Rovers being from Afghanistan at any given moment­.

The Brotherhood, when it came under the helm of CIA operative Ron Stark in 1969, increased hashish imports dramatically.

Purely based on what was seized (not what actually came in) you can see this dramatic increase even in basic statistics. Very little hashish was seized prior to 1966. In 1966 and 1967, however, approximately 70 pounds of hashish were seized, 191 pounds in 1968, and 623 pounds in fiscal year 1969.

Note that it takes 625 pounds of raw marijuana to make one pound of hashish. So, 623 pounds of hashish seized means that 390,000 pounds of marijuana had to have been used.

In other words, they start seizing it which literally draws attention to it – spawning a “let’s rebel against the government kind of thing” – plus drives the price up, and – away we go. Kids everywhere really want to take marijuana now – just to be contrary.

Where is all the money going from this CIA sanctioned hashish smuggling?

As I said, the CIA used Castle Bank and Resorts International to facilitate the hidden transfer of huge sums to finance subversion, paramilitary operations, an occasional coup d’etat, bribery, and payments to foreign informants.

Remember the deal here, special people are chosen to ‘deposit’ cash into the bank, which then goes straight back out into all those lovely CIA drug and gun operations, These ‘investors’ are then rewarded with pittances proportionately (out of the profits) but those pittances are beyond the wildest dreams of most of the people in this world.

Think L. Ron Hubbard here.

Billy Mellon Hitchcock was assigned to be the go-between for drug distribution groups such as the Brotherhood and their offshore accounts. He justified his actions to himself by considering that he was some kind of hero – a modern day “Robin Hood”.

In a rare, candid conversation……Hitchcock said he thought of himself as mired in a Robin Hood syndrome. He said he got involved with The Brotherhood of Eternal Love because kicking the establishment in the teeth was exciting. Of course, William Mellon Hitchcock is the establishment.

May 10, 1967, on orders (CIA, which his family had tight connections to by blood and by marriage) Hitchcock poured over $5,000,000 into unregistered “letter stocks” (the kind that aren’t traded publicly but tend to show dramatic gains on paper) associated with the Mary Carter Paint Company, later known as Resorts International – yet another addition to the Helliwell off-shore banking complex.

It was the single largest chunk of money raised by Resorts International.

Note: Hitchcock also had his private account at the Helliwell’s CIA front bank – Castle Bank and Trust. 23  Richard M. Nixon also happened to be one of the three hundred prominent Americans who used Castle Bank to deposit their cash. The bank’s clientele included actor Tony Curtis, the rock group Creedence Clearwater Revival, Playboy publisher Hugh Hefner, Bob Guccione’s Penthouse, Chiang Kai-shek’s daughter and her husband, and billionaire eccentric Howard Hughes.

Resorts International then proceeded to build a casino (completed in 1967) on an exclusive piece of Bahamian real estate called Paradise Island (used as a model for the 1977 cheesy TV series called Fantasy Island.

fantasy island.

It’s an island in the Bahamas formerly known as Hog Island, considering the wealth and power ‘hogs’ that frequented the place, I’d say the original name is quite accurate.

A star-studded cast was on hand for the grand opening of the gambling spa on New Year’s eve 1968, complete with tennis courts, swimming pools, albino beaches, and the clear blue waters of the Caribbean.

Richard Nixon, who was about to launch a successful bid for the White House, was the guest of honor at this gala event. James Crosby, president of Resorts International, contributed $100,000 to Nixon’s campaign. Crosby and Bebe Rebozo (Nixon’s best friend who illegally funneled millions to Nixon’s campaign) mingled with a bevy of movie stars, jet setters, gangsters, and GOP faithful. Billy Hitchcock was also there, idling among the heavies with drink in hand.

Resorts International literally became synonymous with big-time drug trafficking: cocaine and marijuana from the Caribbean and South America, LSD and hashish produced in factories in the Bahamas, Costa Rica, etc., with venture capital provided through IOSInvestors Overseas Services (Robert Vesco and the CIA).

The IOS was an international “mutual fund” that somehow managed to accumulate an excess of $2 billion in investment capital on behalf of “unnamed subscribers.” This is that CIA banking scheme I described earlier. A lot of money was going through that place.

Besides Norman Leblanc, Bernie Cornfeld and and Seymour (“The Head”) Lazare, were directors of the Swiss-based IOS (Investors Overseas Services) a fast-money laundry for whoever the CIA deemed allowed. Anywhere from organized crime, corrupt Third World dictators, wealthy expatriates, and freelance swindlers.

But Robert Vesco got caught doing some funny money transactions, and a case was brought in 1969. At which time Robert Vesco hied off to Costa Rica, keeping one step ahead of the investigations and protecting his CIA connections (behind the IOS) in the process.

United States District Court, S.D. New York.·296 F. Supp. 530 (S.D.N.Y. 1969) FOGEL V. CHESTNUTT, Rosalind FOGEL and Gerald Fogel, Plaintiffs, v. George A. CHESTNUTT, Jr., et al., Defendants. No. 67 Civ. 60. United States District Court, S.D. New York, February 19, 1969.

The defendant I.O.S., Ltd. (I.O.S.) moves for summary judgment dismissing this derivative stockholders’ action brought on behalf of American Investors Fund, Inc. (the Fund)…I.O.S. owned 166 out of 350 shares of the voting stock of The Fund of Funds, Ltd. (FOF), a defendant. Thus, it had presumptive control of FOF…The percentage of transactions awarded to Jesup Lamont was 31%, which generated brokerage commissions to it in excess of $370,000 over the period referred to in the complaint.

While I.O.S. denies that it in any respect influenced or dominated the Fund directly or indirectly by virtue of its FOF control, it acknowledges “that representatives of I.O.S. merely suggested that Jessup Lamont be used as a broker by the Fund * * *.”

A “mere suggestion” by one who has voting control of FOF, which in turn presumptively controls the Fund, may carry with it the force of authority. At times, depending upon circumstances, a wink or a nod may convey meaning of deeper significance than the surface act. And so here the “mere suggestion” must be viewed in the light of all the surrounding circumstances…

There is also the charge that I.O.S. received cash kickbacks with respect to the brokerage commissions from Gloria M. Clapp, the registered representative of Jesup Lamont, who received 60% of the gross commissions generated by the Fund.

Part of the monies were deposited with the Fiduciary Trust Company of Nassau in the Bahamas, from which it is further alleged they were transferred to or loaned to affiliated banks of I.O.S. in the Bahamas. Attempts to inquire further into the matter and the relationship between the I.O.S. affiliated banks and the Fiduciary Trust were blocked upon a plea of the Bahamas banking secrecy laws.

…The motion is denied.

 

See that mention of Fiduciary Trust? That is where the drug trade crosses into the newer breed of drugs the slavemasters had cooked up for humanity – this time, LSD.

As part of a ‘research’ project of where/how to manufacture the LSD for the chosen delivery vehicle (chosen by British and American intelligence and Vatican banking interests), in the spring of 1968 William Mellon-Hitchcock and Nick Sand journeyed to the Bahamas where they stayed at the mansion of Sam Clapp, chairman of the local Fiduciary Trust company.

Leary and Hitchcock

Sam Clapp was a college buddie of Hitchock and they had been doing business for years. The two of them arranged for Nick Sand to open an account under a false name at Clapp’s bank.

Clapp was under investigation by the SEC and had been barred by July 1968 as per the SEC News and Digest.

clapp_and_the_sec_barred_july_1968_fiduciary_trust.

Note – Gloria Martica Clapp was a Cuban who had become a citizen of the Bahamas.

As we saw in the first court case I showed you earlier, Fiduciary Trust had ties to the IOS – Robert Vesco, which means it was yet another CIA cut-out bank. Bernie Cornfeld and Seymour Lazar were directors of both banks and they were also heavily invested in the Vesco/CIA network.

The principals of the Fiduciary Trust Company were Samuel Clapp, William Sayad (a Miami attorney) and Edward Cowerr. In 1968, after having invested in Mary Carter Paint, Clapp and Sayad entered consent decrees with the SEC for trading in unregistered shares of Mary Carter Paint stock. Subsequently, on March 1, 1971, Cowerr, also a principal in the Investors Overseas Service (I.O.S.), was barred by the SEC from engaging in the business of a broker-dealer for actions unrelated to Mary Carter Paint Company stock.

Shortly after the whole disruption of the Fassler network by the CIA-driven scientologists, toward the end of 1968 Hitchcock had been working closely with Johann F. Parravacini of the Parravacini Bank Ltd in Berne, Switzerland – another CIA and Vatican cut-out banker.

Together they funded even further expansion of the Caribbean-California LSD-hashish ventures in the Caribbean with funds provided by the Fiduciary Trust Co. (IOS – Vesco’s CIA cut-out bank).

In conjunction with J. Vontobel and Co. of Zurich, Hitchcock founded a corporation called 4-Star Anstalt in Liechtenstein. This company, employing “investment funds” (that is, drug receipts) from Fiduciary Trust, bought up large tracts of land in the Grand Bahamas as well as large quantities of ergotamine tartrate, the basic chemical used in the production of LSD (now being handled by Ron Stark and Nick Sand).

When Hitchcock was called to testify before the SEC regarding Sam Clapp, Robert Vesco and Fiduciary Trust he quickly shifted his money (which meant all the Brotherhood’s drug profits) into a series of new accounts (no names, just numbers) in the Paravacini Bank in Bern – a total of 67 million dollars funneled there.

Due to his role in Mary Carter, Billy Hitchcock was suspended as a broker by the SEC for a whole ten days.24

It was Billy Hitchcock, CIA asset, that send Ronald Hadley Stark to replace him in running the Brotherhood. Early in 1969 one of Hitchcock’s bag men ran afoul of Customs when re-entering the United States with $100,000 in cash. Customs alerted the IRS who began sniffing around Hitchcock, plus he also had the SEC investigations going on already. It was at this point that Hitchock consulted with his handlers and they decided to replace his role with Ronald Stark.

Several accounts place the arrival of Ron Stark as being in the spring of 1969, whereas others (perhaps more reliable) place the event just before Griggs death. John Griggs, the unofficial leader of the Brotherhood of Eternal Love smugglers, died in the wee hours of August 4, 1969.

Stark was an Operation Gladio operative. Much like Ron Hubbard, he had a knack for popping up wherever trouble was brewing – the streets of Paris during the Sorbonne uprising in May of 1968, London clubs and bars that were hangouts for “dissidents, and in Milan during the ‘hot autumn’ of 1969, when massive student demonstrations and labor strikes nearly paralyzed Italy.

As part of covert Gladio operations, Stark had been working with US intelligence agencies for at least 9 years by the time he hooked up with the Brotherhood.

Although details are sketchy, Stark apparently met with Hitchcock in his New York apartment, and then a few weeks later he and an ‘assistant’ travelled to Griggs ranch in Idylwild. Stark kicked off the meeting by showing them a kilogram of liquid LSD — for US readers, that’s 2.2 pounds of acid.

This was the LSD that would be produced and labeled “Orange Sunshine”,  but, there are a number of reports that this LSD was inferior and actually caused a number of bad side effects, such as stimulant reactions and symptoms quite closely resembling those of strychnine poisoning. Michael Hollinshead said there was something wrong with the ‘trips’ as well. He later wrote in The Man Who Turned on the World:

There was now little good acid around, and what there was – the so-called “street acid” – came mainly from California. There was something wrong with the synthesis; it was not pure. And you were never sure what it was exactly that you were taking, so I only dropped it on those rare occasions when someone gave me “Sandoz” or “crystal” acid…

Once Stark was brought into the Brotherhood, he quickly took change of the entire operation, establishing secure shipments and managing every aspect of their finances, plugging them into the Gladio ‘big 3’ drug smuggling underground.  Massive marijuana imports from the Middle East (hashish), shadow CIA and MI6 bank accounts in the Cayman Islands, everything the ‘big 3’ wanted the brotherhood to be used for – which was to covertly finance their black operations, and perhaps more importantly, further the ‘strategy of tension’ agenda towards America’s youth.

Make no mistake, this was war.

Meanwhile, on the MI6 end of things, just weeks before Stark met with the Brotherhood for the first time, as part of another one of his Gladio ops Stark had taken over the French dissidents magazine called Frendz

Dick Pontain take Stark off to Frendz magazine. It appears that Stark takes over the funding – there’s an overpaid editor, a staff of 17, a fleet of hire cars and they never sold more than 5,000 copies an issue. Now you have this magazine, acting as spokesman for the Angry Brigade, and involved with Jim McCann, who is close to the IRA. Enter, at the beginning of 1971, Howard Marks, who’s doing some dope business with Alan Marcuson and Charles Radcliffe of Frendz magazine.

   (Acid: A New Secret History of LSD, David Black, pg. 98) quote found at this blog.

Howard Marks was an MI6 asset. Stark hooked up with him some time after he had met with the Brotherhood in Idylwild, then had traveled to Cambridge where he met up with British LSD would-be distributors at his rooms at the Oxford and Cambridge Club on Pall Mall. Tony digs to be sure.

After this, as part of his Gladio operations, that fall (1969) Stark went over to Milan to ‘mingle’ at the student demonstrations and labor strikes. Just a little later, in the 1970’s he was also hooked up with the Sicilian Mafiosi and various other intelligence agents useful to his Gladio ops. He had quite the ‘posh’ lifestyle he maintained in Italy – at the same time as running the Brotherhood’s finances.

– – –

Obviously, despite all the sneaking around and double-dealing going on here, the heat was on from other governmental agencies that were not in on the whole drug-smuggling loop that the CIA was in – there was simply too much evidence that Colby and his cronies were definitely involved in smuggling drugs and had deliberately allowed (and promoted) the increase of heroin use and the spreading (ordered by Ron Stark) of the Brotherhood’s ‘Orange Sunshine” amongst American GI’s.

But things were still going along just swimmingly for these drugs-as-weapons Gladio operatives.

And then in 1971, approx $224 million was routed from the IOS to Robert Vesco (who was about to continue its laundering into various CIA black book operations) but he got caught – someone managed to see the money moving in the SEC.

Ronald Stark [the new Brotherhood of Eternal Love LSD connection] said that a tip from the CIA prompted him to shut down his French Operation in 1971 and a few months later he opened another production center in Brussels which masqueraded for 2 years as a reputable firm engaging in “biomedical research”. During that time he communicated on a regular basis with officials at the American embassy in London and even received their assistance while setting up the Belgian lab. By the time he was done, he had made over twenty kilos of LSD – the largest amount from any single underground source and most of it was sold in the United States. 23

This is exactly when both William Colby (Operation Phoenix) and Lucien Conein get recalled to Washington.

The ‘Big 3″ drug trafficking money lines needed more hands-on protection. A protection that would begin operating from within the U.S. Government – under the auspices of the BNDD, no less.

How’s that for irony?

It’s also just before the BNDD would start their PR show of the big Brotherhood of Eternal Love drug busts (and other ones around the U.S.).

But, were Conein or Colby ever disciplined for what they were part of doing to the GI’s – their own people?

no shaking head

Of course not. Instead, Colby was made the Deputy Director of Operations, the man in charge of the CIA’s covert operations! And where was Conein put? In charge of the ‘special operations” portion of the BNDD, created just for him and staffed primarily by CIA agents.

The CIA later admitted that “certain elements in the organization” had been involved in opium smuggling and that the illegal activities of U.S. allies had been ‘overlooked’ supposedly to “retain their loyalties”.

The only reason they even admitted that is because they were cornered by the irrefutable tales of the returning GIs, such as  Green Beret Paul Withers whom we quoted earlier.

Later on during the year Colby came back to Washington, Robert Vesco and banker Parravicini worked to arrange another money-laundering network, this one to help the British with propping their man Lynden Pindling up in the Bahamas to facilitate (and keep hidden) all that drug smuggling money they all were profiting by.

In October of 1971, Butlers Bank Trust Company founded Bahamas Commonwealth Bank on the instructions of the IOS (Vesco). It was to be the lead IOS financial institution and the international banking arm of ABC. It was capitalized at $4 million from Overseas Development Bank (Geneva) the new BCB stock was contributed to International Bancorp which gave shares in return and the result was Vesco’s usual hidden chain of command. BCB controlled by IBL (IOS) controlled by ICC controlled by RLV. Butlers Bank won BCB the right to trade international currencies,vital to Norman Leblanc for moving money around.

Bank officials, per a local paper, conceded that “loans show a definite trend toward people closely allied with the ruling Progressive Liberal Party of Lynden Pindling.” The Bahamian Commission of Inquiry said in 1984 that between 1977 and 1983 Pindling received an unexplained $3.5 million more than he was paid in salary. 26

 

Again, all this heat was a large part of why the whole mafia network had undergone a bit of a pushed off to the side action, where the now preferred use by the slavemasters was of cut-out smugglers – such as the Brotherhood of Eternal Love and the earlier Lawrence Fassler network.

This worked to both expand the “offerings” of drugs to include cocaine and pot, but to also give multiple heads-on-a-pike that could be used should justifiable public outrage reach governmental levels and require a staged – Oh look what we caught! – routine.

Ron Hubbard’s merry (well, maybe not so merry after all) band of dupes, crims and drug lord intelligence agents – aka Scientologists – began getting into the fray as well. Probably to help with both gathering intel and providing another cut-out of “those crazy cult members” kind of thing, like Reverend Moon and the Unification Church.

The official DEA history actually still lists that Timothy Leary is who started the Brotherhood of Eternal Love, without any mention whatsoever of Leary’s ties to the CIA both through the MKULTRA LSD-testing sub-projects and through Billy Mellon Hitchcock and the Brotherhood of Eternal Love.

One very good example of these staged drug busts, this one orchestrated by long-time CIA agent Terrence Burke and Paul Knight out of the Kabul BNDD office, is the one on Timothy Leary.

1973-timothy-leary-arrestThe caption for this photo page from the official DEA history reads:

In 1972, Timothy Leary (center) was brought to justice by DEA Special Agents Don Strange (right) and Howard Safir (left). Leary, a psychology instructor, was fired from his post at Harvard University as a result of his experimentation with LSD. In 1969, he founded a clandestine drug-trafficking ring, known as the Brotherhood of Eternal Love, that became the largest supplier of hashish and LSD in the United States. 33

That’s a complete misdirection by the DEA.

Leary, himself a CIA asset for the secret MKULTRA LSD experimentation programs, did help found the Brotherhood but it was in 1966, not 1969. The deliberate mis-dating to 1969 by the DEA here, is where the the really interesting omission lies.

Because it was in 1969, that CIA agent Ron Stark took the helm of the Brotherhood and took it to new heights smuggling huge amounts of hashish and implementing the mass distribution of Orange Sunshine, the LSD form that the Brotherhood was the go-between on.

Another example is the one that was used to push through the formation of the DEA in 1973. Congress was holding hearings all through the Spring and Summer of 1973, but when CIA/BNDD agent Terrence Burke and Paul Knight staged the April 22, 1973 ‘bust’ of the Brotherhood with – and get this – ‘huge stores’ of false identification being seized (that Burke and the CIA, and Conein and the SIO run by CIA man Bartels had arranged for the Brotherhood) – when all that was publicized in the press? You can just imagine how that looked to the average person…

Two days later, Nicholas Sand, Timothy Scully, Michael Randall, and four other major figures in the LSD operation were indicted by a Federal grand jury in San Francisco, Calif. Four of these higher echelon members are still fugitives.

Not too surprisingly, one of the hearings about the ‘need’ for the DEA was started almost immediately after these ‘arrests’. It was called: “Hashish Smuggling and Passport Fraud, The Brotherhood of Eternal Love.” You can read it for yourself at the internet archive.

Quoting from it –

Mr. SouRwinE. Now, for the record, would you identify the four that you did not name, and indicate which of the eight are the four that are still fugitives?

Mr. Sinclair. Yes, sir. The individuals referred to are David Lee Mantel; Charles Druce, currently a fugitive; Lester Friedman; and Ronald H[adley] Stark, currently a fugitive. In addition to these four individuals, one of those previously mentioned, Michael Randall, is also a fugitive.

[…]To date, the brotherhood investigation has resulted “in the arrests of over 100 individuals, including Dr. Timothy Leary who is currently serving 15 years in Folsom prison.

Four LSD laboratories have been seized, along with over 1 million “orange sunshine” LSD tablets, and LSD powder in excess of 3,500 grams, capable of producing over 14 million dosage units of the drug.

In addition, the source of diversion for the raw materials needed in the production of LSD was identified in Europe.

A total of six hashish oil laboratories were seized, along with over 30 gallons of hashish oil and approximately 6,000 pounds of solid hashish. 37

See what a total SHOW that was?

* * *

The point here is that this was all really about controlling the flow of drugs and the lots and lots of money being channeled into black operations to supposedly “stop the Communists” – which was really about controlling others countries the way the slavemasters wanted them to be.

Let’s also not forget that CIA NOC agent Miles Copeland spilled the beans that in 1947, this was simply a chosen propaganda line to justify continuing their war-mongering behavior control institutions.

This, in turn, actually sources back to the Catholic Church, going all the way back into the 1800’s when it was chosen as a straw-man to try and degrade the American Revolutionists, the Bill of Rights (which they hated) and the Constitution.

It should also be clearly understood that under the intelligence cover of being “drug enforcement” agents operating against ‘communist drug smugglers‘ – a number of men were actually facilitating the drug trade and the forcing of illicit substances on targeted populations.

The FNB was where the first evolution of “I’m a drug-busting agent (but what I’m really doing is helping certain drug runners and removing others)” took place.

This was where Paul Emerson Knight had been quietly inserted.

Intro and History

Section 8.  Interpol, Paul Knight, Francois Lemouel and The French Connection

Paul Knight

 

Harvard grad (and new CIA recruit) Paul Emerson Knight was hired by FBN director Harry Anslinger in the fall of 1950 and is assigned to the New York office.

Paul Emerson Knight, Harvard 1950

paul_emerson_knight_-_harvard_1950_cia_bndd

This was considered a ‘plum’ job in the FBN network, but it also happened to be the same office that agent George White was operating from. He he had been promoted there because of his Hip Sing Tong bust in the 1930’s. 11

During WWII, George had specifically helped the OSS (predecessor to the CIA) help set up the mafia network, where mafia agents were used by intelligence agencies in various operations. During that time (and long after) George White often recruited agents to run ops for him.

One such agent was his ‘special’ mafia man who helped get the whole heroin French connection going in Marseille for Helliwell and the CIA and British intelligence and the Vatican Bank – the ubiquitous Pierre LaFitte.

Although Lafitte “proudly traces his lineage to the pirate LaFitte,” as a small child his mother simply left him one day, and he was literally raised by various members of the Corsican mafia. Sometime in the mid-30’s Lafitte returned to the U.S. where he was involved in the drug trade and when WWII broke out he went to work for the OSS. Granting White’s role in the OSS, it’s no surprise that he would ‘run into’ Lafitte and form a relationship with him. Purportedly while White was in Marseille in 1948, helping Irving Brown set up the Corsican drug-trafficking network, Lafitte was highly instrumental in forming connections to the “gangs” that Irving Brown began paying with CIA money.

Lafitte was also well acquainted with Santos Trafficante, Jr., whom he initially knew from his days in Tampa and St. Petersburg, Florida. This is important because later on ‘main man’ Golden Triangle drug connection, Paul Helliwell, would become the attorney for Santos Trafficante when the heroin network began being shifted away from French intelligence and the Corsicans in the 1960’s.

By 1951, Pierre Lafitte began ‘officially’ working with George White as an ‘undercover informer’, but he was also acting as his pimp and general go-to man for White’s MKULTRA projects for the CIA. That was something that I found out about when I was researching my British Security Coordination Compendium. In Part II: The Party Boys I wrote this –

Helping White decorate the apartment with Toulouse-Lautrec posters was his “Special Employee” Pierre Lafitte, who also hired prostitutes to lure victims into White’s lair. Also assisting White were Gil and Pat Fox.

And what apartment was that?

The one that George White had just been paid thousands of dollars by Sydney Gottlieb to begun covert experiments of dosing people with LSD, otherwise known as George White’s CIA MKULTRA subprojects.

In George Hunter White: The Early Years, I go into George’s ‘loaning’ of LaFitte to Hank Greenspun and how James Phelan was the propaganda outlet for what they were doing in Las Vegas in 1955. Besides the big side-show about ‘busting’ prostitutes etc.etc., in the shadows were the CIA and Santos Trafficante, the long-term associate of East-Coast based mafia man Meyer Lansky (and George White personal contact for OSS/CIA work) was gearing up to take over the Lansky Empire – as requested.

Greenspun loved to create a ‘man of mystery’ image around LaFitte around that time. Like this commentary in the Vegas Sun (from FBI Files 25) for example:

I see where Pierre LaFitte, alias Louis Tabet, is back in the news again. Bob Considine calls him the most amazing character operating in the narrow sphere between law enforcement and the underworld. He is a mystery man of many disguises, names and characters who has outwitted some of the toughest criminals in the world. Tabet helped me uncover some nasty birds in the past but if I ever needed help from him, it is now. For all we may know, he may be sitting in the courtroom this morning. He might be hiding in Madison Graves, alias Matt Graves’ briefcase. He may even come disguised as a page from one of the juge’s law books and these are not ordinary law books. They are almost as fantastic as Tabet.

Very colorful, to be sure.

Prior to 1961, the FBN narcotics agents (including George White and Paul Knight) operated out of the U.S. Consulate in Istanbul. It was Paul Knight who was selected to head up the new permanent FNB office in Istanbul that year.

The tight relationship with CIA agents involved in protecting the drug-trafficking relationship was already well in place. Not to mention FNB agents were often actually CIA agents with a cover of being an FNB agent – like Paul Knight.

Another example was agent Vizzini, whom I wonder has any relationship to Vatican ‘men-of-confidence’ Caligore Vizzini?

Anywho…

Among the officers to arrive in the late fifties was a seasoned agent named Salvatore Vizzini. Over the course of his career, Vizzini’s fieldwork for the bureau would take him all over the world as an undercover operative. In addition to his work with the FBN, Vizzini’s activities also extended into the realm of clandestine operations.

While based in Turkey, Salvatore Vizzini regularly collaborated with Harold Fiedler, a CIA operator attached to the Turkish security service who also possessed an office in the U.S. consulate. In 1960, while touring the Turkish–Soviet border under Fiedler’s instructions, Vizzini shot and killed two men.

Vizzini, in a later interview, stated the shootings were covered up by the FBN and were reported as a “junk deal gone bad.” Yet no report referencing the incident can be found with the FBN’s files. In fact, the CIA is rarely mentioned within any of the reports submitted from Turkey.27

It is now well-known that in regards the CIA Sea Supply drug smuggling going on with China, that FNB head Anslinger personally ‘ignored’ reports detailing drug dealings among elements of Chang Kai-Shek’s Nationalist forces.’

This selective behavior would continue up to and through both the BNDD and the DEA, following the pattern of how the FBN either ignored or provided political cover for CIA backed allies in both Southeast Asia and later on in Latin America.

Recently declassified documents show that the CIA’s collaboration with (and often appropriation of) narcotics operations continued well into the seventies.28

You can just imagine how that went over with the more honest and erstwhile drug enforcement agents. Thwarted by their own country! But, that’s the thing. It wasn’t really ‘their own country’. The ‘big three’ behind it all have no country. They consider the entire world is theirs and theirs alone.

Still, it must have been horrible for the few decently motivated narcotics agents to have to experience first-hand that kind of betrayal, to have to see what was being done to their fellow man. And for what?

Nothing.

Reminder –

pointing_finger_down

It was right when the CIA infested BNDD was formed, the Brotherhood began their big hashish smuggling phase.

Concurrently, in 1969, we get some well documented of this ‘we’re about busting drug rings’ subterfuge by CIA agents occurring in Afghanistan.

CIA agent Paul Knight opened a BNDD office in Kabul with two cover stories. The ‘inside’ one was that the office was opened as a cover for CIA operations directed against the Soviet Union.” The ‘outer’ one was this his purpose was to “track the hashish traffic and investigate the movement of heroin from, to, and through Afghanistan, Iran, and Turkey.

Three guesses what the real purpose of the office was, and the first two don’t count!

As usual this was about controlling the hashish and heroin drug smuggling in order to continue financing the CIA and the ‘big 3’ black operations around the world.

This move happened to be timed exactly the same year that Nixon began serving as U.S. President and when the Brotherhood of Eternal Love head, Mr. Griggs, died under suspicious circumstances. All this conveniently opened the door for CIA asset Ronald Stark to ‘enter stage right’ and greatly expand the BEL hashish smuggling operation, plus set it all up for the takedown by now drug enforcement agent, our very same CIA man Terrence Burke.

Terrence was working directly under Paul Knight and would be instrumental in working with scientologists (sort of) and Guardian’s Office intelligence staff Terry Milner and Jerry McDonald – both themselves undercover agents for the U.S. government – to ‘bring down’ the Brotherhood.

The reason for the somewhat more open posting of CIA agents as BNDD agents had to do with a ‘contract’ with the CIA to ‘ferret out corruption in the Ingersoll-ran bureaucracy’. However, this was simply the first step in the CIA’s continued infiltration and subordination of the new federal drug law enforcement agency – which had begun under Ingersoll. Making sure it stayed on track with the ‘big 3’ (the slavemasters) plan like it’s predecessor (the FNB) had been doing.

CIA direct involvement with the BNDD (Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs) began in 1969 shortly after its creation. The arrangement becoming more formalized in early 1971.

March 24, 1969, CIA document –

It appears that the activities of the BNDD, ongoing and planned, could under the appropriate arrangements provide valuable information to the Agency in new drug effects, drug abuse and drug traffic areas. For this reason they will be followed very closely.

A set of declassified documents called: Family Jewels (as a collection) contains several clear examples of this relationship.

On p. 29 –

Note: CI stands for Counter Intelligence.

terrence_burke_BNDD_CIA_-_DOD_doc.

Note: point 3 especially – that, of course, describes someone like CIA operative Terrence Burke, etc. perfectly – and lo and behold! He ends up supposedly being a BNDD employee.

Many foreign policemen and intelligence officers were painfully aware of the fact that BNDD personnel were mainly CIA agents working under BNDD cover to support the continuation of the drug-trafficking by smugglers in their good graces.

Furthermore, the BNDD was not allowed to pursue corrupt foreign drug-running officials who cooperated with the CIA.

A good example of this was Santos Trafficante.

In 1970, the Meyer Lansky Southeast-Asian produced heroin was ready to now be tested on American GI guinea pics, but Lansky fled to Israel (business-related charges against him) turning things over to Trafficante.

Trafficante held at twelve-day meeting with representatives of several Mafia families at the Hotel Sole in Palermo, Sicily on July 4, after which he began his war against the remnants of the Corsican network that had emigrated some of their activities to South America. The major ‘target’ to be taken out was one Auguste Ricord in Paraguay, who wasn’t about to just roll over and die.

Ricord had finagled his own Hong Kong connection, Ng Sik-ho aka “Limpy Ho,” a major ‘Nationalist’ Chinese heroin smuggler well-connected to the Taiwan regime. Heroin shipments began going to Paraguay via, among other transit points, Chile. The ‘big 3’ stepped in and finally put a stop to this ‘unapproved’ smuggling and extradited Ricord to the U.S. in 1972.14a

That, is a very good example of someone they were not targeting, or allowing to be targeted easily. It’s also a very good example of how the traffic was actually increasing.

French President Pompidou and President Nixon

pompidou-and-nixon

What Trafficante was actually doing there was part of a larger plan that had everything to do with making sure that increase happened and nothing to do with stopping the drug flow. President Nixon and French President Pompidou worked together to wipe out the ties between refineries in Marseille and their distribution points belonging to the Corsican mafia. This “adjustment” in distribution of drugs was referred to by Henrik Kruger as an unnoticed “political coup.” 14b

It was a success.

According to investigative researcher Douglas Valentine, “during the Nixon Administration, the CIA’s involvement in drug trafficking reached new heights; which is why Nixon’s war on drugs became a defining issue in his downfall.4

I would certainly agree with that assessment.

– – –

The following year after this arrangement began between the CIA and the BNDD, the boys in the Justice Department did their proper step-n-fetch-it for their masters, and had successfully pushed Congress to clear Nixon’s Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970.

It was: to provide expanded programs of rehabilitation, treatment and drug abuse education, to unify and revise Federal narcotics laws, to revise the entire penalty structure for violations of those laws and to provide new tools for enforcement.

Final action on the massive drug control bill came Oct. 14, 1970 when the House and Senate by voice votes adopted the conference report on HR 18583. The Senate had approved the bill Oct. 8; the House had passed it Sept. 24.

President Nixon signed the bill (PL 91-513) on Oct. 27.

David M. Kennedy, Secretary of the Treasury noted that HR 17463: “would repeal taxes on narcotics and marijuana on the grounds that the Federal role in controlling dangerous substances can be founded on powers other than taxing. The Treasury Department supports this view and advocates passage of this legislation. The bill does not change the Department’s existing enforcement and investigative responsibilities as exercised through the Bureau of Customs.”

Yes, that’s the same David Kennedy, a Mormon, who was all cozy with the Vatican Bank and other unsavory elements complicit in profiting off the drug trafficking.

Page 62 of Family Jewels talks about how the head of BNDD, Mr. Ingersoll was complaining to Richard Helms (in December of 1970) that: “the old Federal Bureau of Narcotics had been heavily infiltrated by dishonest and corrupt elements who were believed to have ties with the narcotics smuggling industry.”

Can’t you just imagine the poker-face Helms would have had to have, in any publicized face to face meeting on that point? Especially considering Ingersoll was in their pocket as to taking over said narcotics smuggling networks…

Yes, yes, government personnel tied to the narcotics smuggling industry, very bad, very bad.

Lurch from the Adams family

Sheesh.

So now, for 1971, under Title II: Control and Enforcement, it authorized the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs in fiscal 1971 to add at least 300 agents to its existing enforcement staff, and authorized an annual appropriation of $6 million for that purpose, beginning in fiscal 1971.

This is when the formalization (formal request and answer) of CIA involvement with the BNDD was approved by CIA head (DCI) Richard Helms on 12 February 1971. It was then named Operation TWOFOLD*.

*See page 56 of Family Jewels. That same page also refers to this having gone on for several years by the time of this particular document, which was dated 25 May 1973.

There are several documents in the Family Jewels PDF that talk about all the help that the CIA was giving the BNDD for creating false backgrounds, including social security numbers, birth certificates, credit cards, and…passports.

This, by the way, is exactly what is done for NOC agents.

What is a NOC agent? In espionage, agents under non-official cover (NOC), are operatives who assume covert roles in organizations without ties to the government for which they work. Such agents or operatives are typically abbreviated in espionage lingo as a NOC (pronounced “knock”). These agents are also known as “illegals”. Non-official cover is contrasted with official cover, where an agent assumes a position at a seemingly benign department of their government, such as the diplomatic service.

NOC operatives can also be “handlers” – meaning they recruit others under them, such as the relationship between CIA NOC agent Miles Copeland and L. Ron Hubbard.

The CIA protects the anonymity of NOC agents as carefully as possible. To maintain the credibility of NOC agents, the CIA falsifies business papers, salary checks, tax records, personnel files and phone lines. Often NOC agents do not reveal their real jobs, even to close relatives.

One of the biggest points of discussion in the Hashish Smuggling subcommittee hearings of 1973, (two months after the Brotherhood of Eternal Love bust) – was the extensive false documentation and passports a number of the Brotherhood smugglers had.

On page 83 of it’s pdf, it says –

On page 34, Special Agent Strange was asked to provide a list of brotherhood members who are believed to have obtained multiple passports falsely identifying themselves. A list of brotherhood members believed to have obtained one or more passports under assumed names follows:

The Brotherhood—Master List (Passsport) April 18, 1973

Hashish smuggling and passport fraud : ”the brotherhood of eternal love” : hearing before the Subcommittee to Investigate the Administration of the Internal Security Act and Other Internal Security Laws of the Committee on the Judiciary, United States Senate, Ninety-third Congress, first session, October 3, 1973

 

Considering this is just what the CIA was doing to properly install its operatives in and for the BNDD, both as employees and as undercover counter-intelligence agents – this may be a whole lot more relevant than it might first appear.

As to what they were doing…

P. 6 of ‘Family Jewels’ shows you their attitude towards being taken to task for violating the National Security Act of 1947 – he calls it a “fuss” – like it’s nothing.

I do not believe that this is totally illegal under the provisions of the National Security Act of 1947, but I am including it since I am sure that it would be considered as such in light of the recent congressional fuss over our police training activities.

Yeah, ok, it’s not totally illegal, it’s only a little illegal.

Kermit the frog excited

Howard Osborn – in charge of “security” at the CIA, is who said that.

Howard_J._Osborn

CIA agent Terrence Burke, already in place in Kabul as a BNDD agent – working with Paul Knight – for a couple years by this time (1971). Terry begins beating his chest around his first staged ‘drug bust’.

I call him “Breaking Bad” man – after the tv series.

The guy is way too full of himself, if you ask me, especially considering he was not cracking down on drugs. He was helping control the drug trafficking to profit the CIA and the ‘big 3’ how they wanted it. So this is just him being a big ole poser, in my opinion. In fact, I recently found documentation that Burke was all into proving that he was tough and smart enough to work “undercover cases on bad guys with shotguns in motel rooms.” – so I certainly called that right.

If the BNDD had to give Woodland Drive a miss, the span of their organization allowed them to find other places, vulnerable spots in the Brotherhood network: places like Afghanistan.

Scotland Yard had sent over a copy of an address found during the Brotherhood arrests in Broadstairs years before. It matched one provided by CAT of the Tokhis’ rug shop in Kandahar.

[…]Terrence Burke was a CIA veteran who spoke local dialects fluently, having served as an undercover agent alongside Interpol to break up a group of dealers running hash from India to the United States.

Burke formed a working partnership with the Interpol representative and adviser, a formidable West German prepared to use unorthodox methods and disguises to ensnare dealers.

The American agent began by establishing cooperation with the Afghan authorities. He arranged to get copies of embarkation and disembarkation airline cards for American travellers; and from this basic information he got checks run at home in the BNDD files to monitor who was coming and going. He rapidly gathered considerable information on the many Californians who seemed to favour Afghanistan for visits.

Burke found the smugglers often favoured a route which took them from San Francisco to Beirut to Kabul to Delhi, and back westwards. The agent’s researches confirmed the Tokhi brothers as major hash dealers with an almost exclusively American clientele, and linked with the information from the United States.

Burke was on hand in November 1971 when the Tokhis left Afghanistan to visit the Brotherhood for Christmas details of the trip were known to the police in California even before the Tokhis set off. All along their route they were under surveillance. Once they arrived in California, the Afghanis found themselves the centre of attention in more ways than one. Wherever they and their hosts went, narcotics agents blatantly photographed and recorded almost their every move. Andrist took them to Disneyland, and the police were close behind. The party went to see wild animals at a safari park, attended by a police helicopter overhead.

Ah, but wait a minute here. See all that about his connections to Interpol?

Intro and History

Section 8.  Interpol, Paul Knight, Francois Lemouel and The French Connection

Interpol

 

Ron_Hubbard_in_africa_1960L. Ron Hubbard was forever going on about the nazis, interpol, etc. as a misdirecting action to his “intelligence” personnel of the Guardian Office.

The truth is rather different than the propaganda he fed them.

Robert Whitaker is a doctoral candidate in History at the University of Texas at Austin. His dissertation, “Policing Globalization: The Imperial Origins of International Police Cooperation, 1918-1960” studies the relationship between the British Empire and international police organizations, such as Interpol. In addition to his doctoral work, Robert serves as an Assistant General Editor for the journal Britain and the World.Robert Whitaker 1

We must thank Robert for his great work that helped me to lay to rest Hubbard’s propaganda about Interpol, however, Robert is missing a few rather key points of distinction that he should have made more clear.

For example, saying that its Scotland Yard (and leaving out what that means as to Britain’s intelligence apparatus – MI5 and MI6) is just plain ignorant at best, or something a whole lot less noble at worst.

It is a fact that the MPSB’s (aka Scotland Yard) has a long history of involvement in creating false impressions AS COVER FOR THEIR AGENTS and hiding documents for over a hundred years to prevent knowledge of what they do.

Because of that simple fact, things get a whole lot more interesting here as to what’s really going on with this “Interpol did it” business that was constantly spread by the Guardian Office.

This also applies to Hubbard and the Guardian Office targeting the FBI as well because in this article I discussed the back history of British Intelligence ‘boosting up’ the FBI into prominence.

Robert Whitaker’s article specifically discussing the history of Interpol is called: The Joyriders: Richard Enright, Barron Collier, and International Policing, 1922–1938, found in Perspectives on Europe, Autumn 2014, Vol 44, Issue 2.

In 1968, West German police, concerned about the opening of Scientology auditing centers in their country, requested information on the organization from Interpol. Interpol had yet to create a dossier on the Church, and thus asked the London Metropolitan Police (the Met) to develop one.

Cops, Robbers and Scientologists – Why The Church of Scientology Hated Interpol by Robert Whitaker, May 16, 2013.

First of all, for those who don’t know, this is really important to derailing scientology’s false claims that it was Interpol that caused the “attacks” on them. By attacks, they mean the FDA Raid in the early 1960’s, the revocation of tax exemption in 1967, and the FBI raid in 1977.

Since Interpol didn’t even have a dossier on scientology in 1968, that rules out any connection for two out of three of the attacks scientology usally tries to pin on Interpol!

Second of all, see that innocuous statement about the London Metropolitan Police (the Met)? Doesn’t it seem a bit odd to you that Interpol would ask a British police force to compile a dossier for them?

It should, because there’s that direct link to MI5 and MI6 that I mentioned earlier having been not made clear by Robert.

I go into the history of the “Met” (the MPDB) in extensive detail in my Reading Library article titled: Casimir Pilenas Palmer. I highly suggest you read it because it documents Britain’s long history of doing combined intelligence operations with Russia, with Pinkerton’s Detective Agency – operations inside American intelligence agencies such as Army Intelligence (planting false information to embarrass them when they acted on it) and other lovely things like being mixed up with the forging of the infamous Protocols of Zion and The Hitler Map.

The basic op here, that we will see repeated over and over by British slavemasters and their intelligence organizations, is:

  • attract people that were rebels to the British program of world domination through world government
  • set them up to be vilified, and even arrested.

It was the British that also began using a particular propaganda handling for anyone who exposes them and that was: anyone who opposes us is a criminal terrorist nutter. (Nutter = insane person.) I’m sure I don’t need to point out to you the relationship to the later creation of the derogatory terms “conspiracy theorist” and “tin-foil hat”.

– – –

Lastly, note that year of 1968 of when Interpol was ‘asked’ to investigate scientology.

Again – this is the same year that all the newly arranged dirty money financing, the drug routes, etc., the Nixon administration all locked into place, and Hubbard would begin his “sea supply” work for the CIA, after having been given the intelligence cover of that he and scientology had been kicked out of England – to explain why he was suddenly taking to the high seas.

Real quick here, let’s look at example of the Guardian Office propaganda that it was putting out about this alleged ‘attack’ on Scientology by Interpol.

This is from a pamphlet put out by the Guardian Office called: The Dossier Disease

Since the French government relied heavily on information supplied from Interpol, which obtained theirs from Scotland Yard, which obtained theirs from the FBI, it is not difficult to have predicted such an outcome.

You can see the Guardian’s Office isn’t exactly giving you the correct impression. It makes it sound like Scotland Yard doesn’t have any information other than what they got from the FBI, and it leaves out that it was British Intelligence that was propping up and indirectly controlling the FBI in the first place.

All part of building L. Ron Hubbard’s cover as being a ‘lone wolf sci-fi cult head’ – operating completely independently and supposedly just for money.

We know that’s false now, but I bring it up again to illustrate that this is standard operating procedure for the Big 3 when they need their operative, a NOC, to be completely divorced from their more official organizations. Especially when they are going to do “unconventional political warfare” – very dirty tactics, in other words.

– – –

To condense down for you, the rest of Robert Whittaker’s article here about the history of Interpol – basically an organization called the IPC (International Police Conference) was founded at a meeting of the National Police Conference in 1922 at New York City. A man named Richard Enright (New York Police Commissioner) had the idea to turn that into an international association, so off he went on a trip to Europe to recruit other members.interpol-richard-enright_circa_1915

He went to Britain, all earnest and impassioned about cracking down on the drug trade, and other crimes.

Considering the drug-lord to end all drug-lords status of the Brits – the slavemasters – you can just imagine what they thought about that.

Oh no! We Hates ‘Good Guys’!

fear_funny

Needless to say the Brits didn’t exactly fall over themselves in cooperation.

They sent one of the Met’s men (you know what that means now – MI6 connections) Llewellyn William Atcherley, to attend an IPC conference. The topics included: industrial conflict (which Britain through Pinkerton’s was busy stirring up) drug trafficking (which Britain was the biggest heroin drug lord around) criminal identification (which all of MI6 would qualify as).atcherley-llewellyn-william-1922-waldorf-astoria-ny-usa

Atcherley reported back that the delegates from Canada and South America, as well as those from Belgium and Denmark, pledged their “whole-hearted support” for the new scheme.

Lord Horwood himself decided he better attend the next meeting, the 1923 one. Horwood, representing British “interests” (which means slavemaster dominate the world plans) started trashing the American police as being disorganized and so on. Really what that was about is that they weren’t under their control, didn’t kowtow to them well enough.

Horwood put the kebosh on it, in other words.

 

Brigadier-General Lord William Horwood, Chief Commissioner of the Met.

lord_william_horwood_chief_of_met

Enright ignored them (as he should) and with financing from American Tycoon Barron Collier he attempted to hold the 1927 meeting in London.barron_collier00

British intelligence contacted their step-n-fetch-it and completely gullible boy Hoover over at the FBI (using him as the cut-out, you understand) who then dutifully bad-mouthed both Enright and Collier, saying that because Enright wasn’t head of the NYPD anymore the NPC was doomed, and that since he was “forgotten” it would be most unfortunate for the IPC to be revived or recognized. Hoover, just newly made director, put in a plug for the FBI to be the “clearing house” for international cooperation. That’s kind of his way of saying he would do the job Pinkerton’s had been doing for the British.

J. Edgar Hoover – everybody’s dupe

J edgar hoover 1924 - libraryofcongress photo

Hoover and the British wanted to plant negative articles on Enright in papers in New York, then “drop” them to foreign police around the world.

Side note – just like Lucien Conein’s unit in the BNDD would later spend inordinate amounts of time doing.

An internal unit within the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs served as the “point of contact” between the BNDD and
the CIA. This unit, the (Office of Strategic Intelligence) the SIO, used “CIA-style disinformation program designed to destabilize drug trafficking groups by having articles printed about their members in foreign newspapers“.4a

More on that later.

Anyway…

Lord Horwood then declared that the idea of a London conference would “be turned down with a heavy hand.” So, the British backed the founding of the right kind of organization (that won’t look where they don’t want them to, and will do whatever they tell them to). That organization was called Interpol, and it was founded in Vienna in 1923. The first British ‘representative’ (remember, it was their idea in the first place) was Leonard Dunning. They called it an organization that was “truly” international and not focused primarily on North America.

Sir Leonard Dunning

sir-leonard-dunning

British nobility are such jealous little snits sometimes, aren’t they? Sheesh. I also love the double-speak employed by Dunning, who wrote that Interpol “does not aim at influencing legislation, nor does it seek to touch matters which are more properly approached through diplomatic channels.

Matters, eh? Oh, like the tonnage of heroin the Brits were shipping around the world?

Yea. We call enslaving half the world by drug addiction “matters“.

come on!
.

Despite all this Enright and Collier crashed a couple meetings and continued pushing to be a part of this new organization. Eventually, like almost two decades later, they succeeded – in 1938. Unfortunately, that same year the Vienna headquarters of Interpol were taken over by Nazi Germany during the Anschluss – and since the Brits backed all that anyway, oh Look! Just in time to protect their drug trade and all that lovely money and assets they were about to rip away from half the Jews in Europe.

Interpol went “defunct” during the war – how convenient and then came alive again after the intelligence controls and new organizations were all nicely in place in America – how convenient again!

So, that’s Interpol.

Not exactly what L. Ron Hubbard told the Guardian Office staff. Do you see how in duping them to go after Interpol “and the nazis who started it‘ Hubbard actually made them discreditable? Thereby lending credibility to Interpol?

That was the point.

It should make even more sense to you now, as to why British intelligence – through the Met – was giving Interpol the dossier about Scientology.

The Met didn’t finish its ‘profile’ on scientology until 1969, and then had Interpol circulate it worldwide – so that part (that the Guardian Office likes to talk about) is true.

The Met, using their own surveillance records [wtf?] as well as reports collected by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), finished this profile on Scientology in 1969, after which it was circulated to Interpol member nations.

The Met’s profile portrayed the Church as an organization that used the trappings of religion to avoid taxation on what was essentially a massive confidence scam.

The report described the Church’s auditing process as essentially a brain-washing technique that primed the potential member for financial exploitation.

As the report details, “the organization caters to the inadequate. The promise of enhanced mental awareness appears to appeal to those already affected by mental instability, unhappiness and uncertainty.”

Cops, Robbers and Scientologists – Why The Church of Scientology Hated Interpol by Robert Whitaker, May 16, 2013.

 

So, that’s their big ‘profile’, from one of the world’s oldest intelligence organizations. Kinda thin, wouldn’t you say?

Do note the last quoted part of the report, because what that is, is a decision point on a unified propaganda about scientology that served multiple purposes. If you take a look at the section titled: Coordinated PR Positioning between MI6 and the CIA of a recent post of mine, you’ll see all the British intelligence outfits (I include the CIA in that description) all suddenly spouting the same basic idea – at the same time.

February 1969 Embassy London to Secretary of State Washington DC.

That the British, New Zealand and Australian Consular also now shared the belief that the mentally disturbed were being exploited by L. Ron Hubbard. 30

1971 CIA dispatch

[…] HUBBARD appears to be a shrewd businessman who has parlayed his Scientology ‘religion’ into a multimillion dollar business by taking advantage of that portion of society prone to fall for such gimmicks. 31

I see, we’re supposed to believe that Hubbard was ‘just’ a businessman conning people out of their money.

Just to mention one minor problem with that, we already know that Hubbard hardly spent a dime of this money he was supposedly entirely motivated by. So, that’s a problem, credibility-wise, for this particular intelligence cover. Apparently that doesn’t matter to some less than honest media hacks, because this same basic idea happens to still be being trotted out but various scientology-reporting media outlets right on up to today.

This unified description that the ‘Big 3’ came out with there in 1969 was actually Hubbard’s new NOC cover, and when you know what’s really going on here, it’s fascinating to watch them try and hide what he really is.

To me, it’s a sort of ‘the emperor has no clothes’ kind of thing, for all the fools out there that actually believe this tripe. Or want to, anyway.

In the eyes of the Met, the Church’s auditing process was little more than a street level confidence trick, referring to the Church’s auditing machine, “the E-meter,” as nothing more than

a electric meter held in a wooden box [that] has two terminals each of which is attached at the end of a electrode which is a steel or tin can resembling and sometimes actually being, a soup can…The E-meter would appear to be no more than a powerful gimmick for controlling [initiates] and developing in them a sense of awe and submission to a dependency upon the organization.

The report ended with a note of warning:

the authorities in this country are extremely concerned about the organization…scientology is socially harmful; it alienates members of families from each other and attributes squalid and disgraceful motives to all who oppose it. Its authoritarian principles and practices are a potential menace to the personality and well-being of those so deluded as to become its followers.

Cops, Robbers and Scientologists – Why The Church of Scientology Hated Interpol by Robert Whitaker, May 16, 2013.

 

They might as well have called it ‘communist’ while they were at it. I think they did at one time, actually, if you can believe that one.

Setting up a mind-fuck op and then taking pleasure in vilifying those that believed your lies about helping to change what’s wrong with the world (because it’s actually a good thing to do) is a little too much like some guy at a peep show self-pleasuring off of women forced to degrade themselves in that way, in order to survive.

It’s sick, in other words.

Suffice it to say that the scientology ‘op’ is a whole lot more complicated than what this report is trying to describe it as – that’s for damn sure.

Robert Whitaker then goes into the Guardian’s Office and Operation Snow-White, and correctly surmises that they surreptitiously gained a copy of this dossier in West Germany in 1973. That’s exactly what B1 (intelligence) agents did.

Operation Snow White, led to the theft and destruction of hundreds of thousands of government documents relating to the Church of Scientology before it was discovered by the US government in 1977.

Though I have not been able to confirm it, it is more than likely that this operation, or a similar one, also resulted in the public release of the Met’s profile of the Church of Scientology in West Germany in 1973.

The release of this damning document led to a swift response by the Church, which filed suit against Interpol and the Metropolitan Police in German court.

The Church followed this by organizing a propaganda campaign against Interpol that attacked it as a tool of totalitarianism, emphasizing in particular the organization’s Nazi past.

The early wave of this attack featured short newspaper articles and pamphlets that offered surviving photographs of Nazi-run Interpol conferences during the Second World War.

Intro and History

Section 8.  Interpol, Paul Knight, Francois Lemouel and The French Connection

Francois Lemouel

lemouel_s

Who is Francois Lemouel and what’s he got to do with the Guardian’s Office investigations in drug-trafficking by U.S. agencies?

A very good question.

Let’s start with this brief overview of “The French Connection”.

The French Connection, run from Marseille by the Corsican underworld, was the main post-war global network for heroin trafficking. Since the 1970s, three myths have attached themselves to it: (i) it is supposed to have been a centralized and hierarchical organization, (ii) it is believed to have been allowed to thrive thanks to a certain passivity, or even complicity, on the part of the French authorities and, finally, (iii) it is supposed to have been completely wiped out in 1973 following political pressure, thanks to a fierce campaign by the French and US police. A detailed study of the archives and other sources, however, reveals that this was only the tip of the iceberg in a complex global, multinational market. The study shows us that Franco-American collaboration was much more longstanding and successful than was previously thought, and that the campaign of the 1970s merely drove certain elements of the system to set up elsewhere. The French Connection actually only represented one phase in the permanent reconfiguration of the global market for illegal heroin trafficking.3

Put even more simply – the Corsican Network (aka the French Connection) including American and Italian Mafia elements, were being used as a form of “unconventional political warfare” by the French SDCE and the CIA/MI6/Vatican triad. The SDCE was an organization similar to the CIA.

OK. Now look at this.

1976 – January 8

Francois LeMouel, the head of the Central Office for the Suppression of Illicit Drug Trafficking at the DCPJ (1971-81) threatens the U.S. regarding releasing DEA documents to the Church of Scientology.

I believe we could no longer live up to the agreement to cooperate […] Lemouel

Other selected article quotes (full article is in references section) –

A French police chief warned a federal court Wednesday that France will stop cooperating with U.S. Narcotics agents if American judges force secret reports to be made public under the federal Freedom of Information act. […] LeMouel said his agency sent 93 written reports to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency last year and he considers secrecy a vital element in cooperation between police forces of different nations.

We could no longer be able to do this if the information was given to the general public…It would hinder our repressive actions in the future. It would greatly damage our repressive actions against organized crime.

The Justice Department brought not only LeMouel but high ranking police officials from England and across the nation to testify against an attempt by the Church of Scientology to force federal narcotics agents to turn over all documents in which the church is named.

The narcotics agency [DEA] turned over 48 unedited documents, 41 partially censored documents and said there were 26 others that could not be released, citing the exemption in the law for “investigatory records compiled for law enforcement purposes.”

The church suit in U.S. District Court demands access to the still secret papers.2

 

Really take note of this line, and think about what it means.

turn over all documents in which the church is named.

Why would ‘the church’ be named in secret drug-smuggling DEA documents? Because Ron Hubbard and certain people in scientology were involved in Operation Gladio activities like that.

Again, in order to really understand the what, when and where and by whom regarding what they’re talking about there, I highly suggest you read particularly this post of mine:

– – –

The Paris Brigade of Intelligence and Intervention, nicknamed Le Mouel’s Brigade, was formed in 1964 by Francois Le Mouel to disrupt an armed robbery ring. In November of 1965 they supposedly ‘tripped over’ the fact that Lyon Gang members were smuggling heroin on biweekly flights to New York. This being, of course, part of the CIA-MI6 driven Corsican Network that they supposedly ‘tripped over’.4

Where was most of that heroin to New York going? To Harlem, and it was no accident.

When a group later formed to expose this directed abuse of black persons, called the Black Panthers, lengths were gone to in order to discredit, harass, jail, and even kill these people that are still almost unbelievable.

Almost.

Intro and History

Section 8.  Interpol, Paul Knight, Francois Lemouel and The French Connection

The French Connection, Operation Chaos and the new drug smuggling.

 

Quoting from pages 431, 432 of the hardback version of Valentine’s book:

“Who developed the heroin traffic out of the Middle East?” Maria asked rhetorically.

The answer is that it was the same crowd that developed it out of the Golden Triangle. And much of it reached New York, where conservative estimates in 1967 put the addict population at 35,000; half of what it supposedly tallied nationwide. Shaking his head in disbelief, Frank Selvaggi swears there were that many addicts in one Harlem neighborhood alone.

[…] Meanwhile, the Black Panthers were blaming the CIA for Harlem’s heroin epidemic. Determined to squelch such outbursts, the CIA imported Operation Phoenix to America and called it Operation Chaos. Monitored by James Angleton and designed to connect foreign enemies with leaders in the Civil Rights and Anti-War movements. [using fabricated documents, planted agent-provocateurs and false news articles] Chaos opened files on some 300,000 American enemies. In conjunction with military intelligence, the CIA pursued those it considered most dangerous, while the FBI, through its aptly named Operation Hoodwink, used fabricated documents to pit the Mafia against the Communist Party…

As part of Chaos, the CIA, through the NYPD’s Bureau of Special Services and Intelligence (BOSSI) infiltrated the Black Panthers, the Nation of Islam, and even its own creation, Alpha 66, the anti-Castro Cuban terrorist organization. Alpha 66 financed its operations through drug trafficking.

Several FBN agents got involved in the crusade to ‘rid America of security risks’. Having helped hunt down Che Guevara in Bolivia in March 1967, Tom Tripodi was transferred to James Angleton’s Special Operations Division, where Chaos was headquartered. His cover was with a private security firm set up to conduct extralegal domestic covert activities. When he left the CIA to rejoin the FBN in 1968, Tripodi’s functions were “transferred to a unit approved by Howard Hunt.” **

A few years later, Hunt would bring that program and its anti-Castro Cuban drug smugglers [Alpha 66] into the Nixon White House, with a little help from his friend, Lucien Conein.

**Tripodi wrote a book called Crusade wherein on page 148 he talks about Howard Hunt.

James Jesus Angleton (left)

We know now that one of the main criteria for those not on the approved list was that they were “security risks”. What that means is that they would (or could) lead public interest back to the REAL directors of all this smuggling. These people who overlorded he smuggling were in TREASON to their respective countries and citizens.

They were also AT WAR against Americans (and other countries citizens). Destroying their lives by drugs either directly or tangientially. Think about what one druggie hooked on heroin would do, how wide of a circle would be affected by their behavior. Parents, family, friends, etc. etc. all would be put under terrific emotional stress at the very least and would literally be collateral damage spreading much further than just the addict themselves.

Both LeMouel and Paul Knight were involved in Operation Chaos, to the extent that they were both enabling the ‘approved’ drug smugglers and appearing to do their jobs ‘busting’ those who were not on the approved list.

LeMouel worked directly with CIA officer Paul Knight, who operated under cover of being a FBN/BNDD* agent, beginning in January of 1972 when Knight was assigned to Paris.

*Federal Bureau of Narcotics, later renamed the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, later re-organized and became the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

 January 1972

Part of the reason that Knight was assigned to Paris to work with Lemouel shortly after the truth was starting to leak out, was as “cover” operation. They were distracting the public by making a big media circus about “busting” the Corsican network, but what they were really doing?

They were working to re-route the lucrative drug-trafficking into a new direction.

Francois le Mouel, together with Marcel Morin, had just been put in charge as the new heads of the French narcotics law enforcement effort – which is a kind of a sick joke when you understand what was really going on there.

July 25, 1972 NY Times article –

“Some people now being arrested are second-story men and bank robbers,” Mr. Knight said. “They’re not experienced dope peddlers at all, and that’s one reason for the mounting number of arrests: They’re clumsy and they don’t know the ropes.”

It means, he thinks, that the ranks of the professionals are being thinned by the campaign and that the traffickers are beginning to lose contacts they trust.

But it also indicates a variety of new unknowns in the trade, not familiar names on police lists. “It’s a hydra-headed crowd now, drawing in all kinds,” Mr. Knight said.

Society’s tolerance of drugs, he feels, has vastly broadened the pool of recruits eager to replace those arrested. “Why, just a few years ago,” Mr. Knight said, “no self-respecting heist man or white-slaver would have touched the dope trade. Now they’re all moving in.”

The French, while still sensitive to American criticism that they are not doing enough to intercept the traffic, offer this question: “If we can find the way to pick up so many smugglers and caches here,” they ask American officers, “why are you getting so little at your end?

“Well, what can we tell them?” Mr. Murphy said, and Mr. Knight agreed: “It’s a good question.” 38

 

As covered earlier, under the cover of the Vietnam War, the Corsican network and its mafia connections had been essentially fractured, and around this same time (1972) that Lemouel and Knight hooked up was when the heroin trafficking had been fully “re-routed” away from the Corsican/French Connection to the new network operating out of South America and Eastern China (Hong Kong being the hub).

That new network, you recall, actually began kicking in, in 1968 – with Trafficante setting up his new route from Hong Kong.

This was all done deal (albeit a secret one) only a few years before the 1976 news article where Lemouel is basically threatening the U.S. regarding releasing FOIA documents to scientology. That should start giving you a clue here as to why LeMouel and other drug smuggler protectors are all coming to testify and pitch a bitch about the Guardian’s Office drive to expose the DEA drug-trafficking network by demanding classified documents through a FOIA request.

The truth of French and American cooperation (as LeMouel referred to it so benignly in the article) in enabling massive amounts of drugs to flow into the U.S. using the Corsican Network, had been first leaked during the arrest and trial of Mr. Delouette.

In April of 1971, the arrest of Delouette and his guilty plea in connection with the seizure of 96 pounds of heroin in New Jersey last April was accompanied by the revelation that the S.D.E.C.E.—the French counterpart to the C.I.A.—was believed involved with the heroin trafficking. The indictment of Col. Paul Fournier*, a high S.D.E.C.E.** official, and his unwillingness to come to the United States for trial on narcotics charges lends credence to the possibility of high -level involvement. Further, a French conhas refused to testify before the Federal grand jury in Newark on the Doulette Fournier affair.5

*SDCE – Service de Documentation Extérieure et de Contre-Espionnage (English: External Documentation and Counter-Espionage Service). The SDCE was France’s external intelligence agency created on from 6 November 1944 and running until 2 April 1982 when it was replaced by the Direction Générale de la Sécurité Extérieure (DGSE)

**Colonel Paul Fournier’s real name was Paul Ferrer.

We have already covered how in the book The Politics of Heroin in Southeast Asia (1972) Alfred McCoy well-documented that the SDECE financed all of its covert operations, during the Indochina War, from its control of the Indochina drug trade (aka the French Connection).

The CIA and MI6 were doing the same thing in concert with the SDECE, and were the “superiors” so to speak. CIA and Mafia man Paul Helliwell and the creation of Sea Supply/Air America to run drugs for guns to support so-called “anti-communist” insurgenicies, etc. etc.

– – –

Let’s come back to something Doug Valentine documented about CIA agent Tom Tripodi and Operation Chaos, because in a very real sense this was the actual CIA operation that launched the attack on the Guardian Office.

Several FBN agents got involved in the crusade to ‘rid America of security risks’. Having helped hunt down Che Guevara in Bolivia in March 1967, Tom Tripodi was transferred to James Angleton’s Special Operations Division, where Chaos was headquartered. His cover was with a private security firm set up to conduct extralegal domestic covert activities. When he left the CIA to rejoin the FBN in 1968, Tripodi’s functions were “transferred to a unit approved by Howard Hunt.”

A few years later, Hunt would bring that program and its anti-Castro Cuban drug smugglers [Alpha 66] into the Nixon White House, with a little help from his friend, Lucien Conein.4 [p.431,432] plus [p. 148 of Crusade by Tripodi]

Who was this Tripodi character?

Thomas Charles Tripodi was born May 23, 1932. He died of cancer at age 67 in 1999. – obituary

After much hard searching I finally found a graduation photo of Tom but unfortunately it’s of low quality. You can still get the general idea of what he looked like though.

Tom Tripodi in 1958

thomas_c-_tripodi-cia-agent-villanova-1958

A devout Catholic, Tripodi stood at six foot 3 and 240 pounds. Upon graduation, he first tried out for the Giants football team, but finding himself benched most of the time, he went from that to joining the FBN in 1960. By 1962 he had transferred to the CIA, handling counterintelligence and “internal security” out of New York and Miami. He “transferred” back to the BNDD, which was actually under the covert control of the CIA, so it wasn’t really a transfer so much as putting him in a position with an official cover of ‘drug enforcement agent’.

Drug enforcement, get the pun on words? It didn’t actually mean stopping the flow of drugs.

Reminder

pointing_finger_down

The BNDD had been created as part of merging the former BNB functions under the FDA’s Bureau of Drug Abuse Control, but it was actually directly under the Justice Department. The BNDD was then merged with elements of the U.S. Customs Department, forming the DEA in July of 1973.

Tripodi was actually working for Lucien Conein throughout much of his BNDD/DEA career. Supposed ‘drug busts’ and all.

albuquerque_journal_sat__jun_28__1975-cia-tom-tripodi-and-barboa_ albuquerque_journal_tue__jun_24__1975-cia-tom-tripodi_

You can see see Conein live in a 1981 interview, while he was still heading the corrupt CIA-staffed unit within the DEA.

Conein is going to figure prominently in what happened to the Guardian Office of scientology, so I think filling in his history a bit more is in order.

Conein was assigned to the Central Intelligence Agency when it was formed in 1947, keeping his military rank and position as a cover. He retired from the military and CIA in 1968 but later joined the Drug Enforcement Administration, where he directed an intelligence-gathering and operations unit until his civilian retirement in 1984. 32

Conein often prefaced his conversations with such statements as: “Now, this one is the double truth, scout’s honor, the double truth,” or “Don’t believe anything I tell you; I’m an expert liar.

Sounds about right.

Conein – center back

lucien_conein_-_center_back

After ‘leaving’ the CIA in 1968, Col. Conein returned to South Vietnam as a private businessman. This just means that he went NOC – non official cover – as an agent.

In 1972, he joined the DEA.

The Washington Post reported that:

He was in media headlines in the mid-1970s when then-Sen. Lowell Weicker (R-Conn.) investigated allegations that a DEA unit was preparing to arrange the assassination of drug lords. These charges were denied, and nothing was ever proven. 32

So, what is this ‘nothing’ that the Post is still denying for Conein even though he’s dead?

I think it’s worthy of at least a few words on what this was really about, don’t you? Yep.

Condensing down Douglas Valentine’s excellent 2015 article called: Creating a Crime: How the CIA Commandeered the DEA there are a number of very interesting points to add to the mix here.

* * *

.

Intro and History

Section 9.  Conein and the Special Intelligence Unit, DEASOG, etc.

CIA officers Adrian Swain and Tom Tripodi both of were recruited into the BNDD. In April 1971 they went to Saigon, where CIA Station Chief Shackley briefed them and Swain obtained maps of the drug-smuggling routes in Southeast Asia.

Swain and Tripodi both noted that the CIA was protecting people that “were involved in narcotics trafficking and the CIA did not want to identify them.”

The special operations unit, or special intelligence unit, the “CIA” of the new BNDD – how ironic is that – was approved and in May of 1971, Henry Kissinger presented a $120 million drug control proposal, of which $50 million was earmarked for special operations.

These operations would rely on:

longer range, deep penetration, clandestine assets, who remain undercover, do not appear during the course of any trial and are recruited and directed by the Special Operations agents on a covert basis.34

Active-duty CIA officers were assigned to the new SIO as desk officers for Europe and the Middle East, the Far East, and Latin America. Tripodi was assigned as chief of operations.

Tripodi had spent the previous six years in the CIA’s Security Research Services, where his duties of Operation Chaos had included the penetration of peace groups such as the Black Panthers.

Tripodi’s Medusa plan proposed that SIO agents hire foreigners to blow up drug planes while they were refueling at remote airstrips.

Despite any ideas Tripodi (or anyone else in the new BNDD) might have ever had about actually stopping the flow of drugs into the U.S. the assignment of Lucian Conein to the BNDD, literally right on top of forming this “CIA” soon took care of any delusions of grandeur in that direction.

Just two months after the 50 million dollar budget had been created, in July of 1971, Howard Hunt recommended Lucien Conein and the White House hired him into the BNDD as an ‘expert ‘on Corsican drug traffickers in Southeast Asia.

Conein was immediately assigned as a ‘consultant’ to the SIO’s Far East Asia desk.

At the same time the CIA also formed a drug unit in its operations division under Seymour Bolten whose title was: Special Assistant to the Director for the Coordination of Narcotics. This was a powerful position, wherein Bolten had a free hand directing CIA division and station chiefs in drug control operations – to make sure their drug-trafficking operations were not compromised or interrupted.

It shouldn’t be a surprise to you that Bolten worked very closely with Ted Shackley, who in 1972 was appointed head of the CIA’s Western Hemisphere Division.

Shackley being himself already tied tightly to Conein, Tripodi (who had worked with him at JMWave) plus CIA agents with BNDD covers Paul Knight and Terrence Burke, etc. etc., all of whom supposedly are… as far as the public eye goes… engaging in drug-trafficking ‘busts’.

By now, you already know what the real point of what they were doing was.

Seymour Bolten, a U.S. Army World War II veteran, had served in ‘military government in Germany’ (whatever that means) and was detained by the Germans. Seymour, together with Frank Diggs and Larry Phelan worked in the local printing house of Altburgund for 15 months, between November 1943 and January 1945, editing the internal camp newspaper.

Seymour Bolten was one of the first recruits of the newly-formed Central Intelligence Agency in 1947. From 1955 to 1960, Seymour was the CIA’s Deputy Chief of Station on Bonn, Germany.

Bolten was a real piece of work, apparently. The BNDD’s Latin American division chief Jerry Strickler described him in saying: “Bolten screwed us and so did Shackley.

Bolten “screwed” the BNDD by taking dozens of CIA officers and slipping them into the BNDD. Several went to Lucien Conein at the SIO for clandestine, highly illegal operations.

But he also screwed the BNDD (and the American judicial system) by:

setting up a “parallel mechanism” based on a computerized register of international drug traffickers and a CIA-staffed communications crew that intercepted calls from drug traffickers inside the U.S. to their accomplices around the world. This International Narcotics Information Network (INIS) was modeled on a computerized management information system Shackley had used to terrorize the underground resistance in South Vietnam.34

Why was this a problem?

Because it made everything they were actually doing exempt from prosecution!!!!

In so far as evidence acquired by CIA electronic surveillance is inadmissible in court, the CIA was able to protect its controlled deliveries into the U.S. merely by monitoring them. Numerous investigations had to be terminated as a result. Likewise, dozens of prosecutions were dismissed on national security grounds due to the participation of CIA assets operating around the world. 34

How’s that for some slavemaster disease for you.

wiley-double yikes

 

william colbyFactions within the CIA and military were actually opposed to Bolten’s parallel mechanism, but that didn’t matter. CIA Executive Director William Colby supported Bolten’s plan to preempt the BNDD and use its agents and informants for unilateral CIA purposes. The White House also supported the plan for political purposes related to Watergate. Top BNDD officials who resisted were expunged; those who cooperated were rewarded.

 

Bureau of Narcotics Covert Intelligence Network

In September 1972, DCI Helms (then immersed in Watergate intrigues), told BNDD Director Ingersoll that the CIA had prepared files on specific drug traffickers in Miami, the Florida Keys, and the Caribbean. Helms said the CIA would provide Ingersoll with assets to pursue the traffickers and develop information on targets of opportunity. The CIA would also provide operational, technical, and financial support.

The result was the Bureau of Narcotics Covert Intelligence Network (BUNCIN) whose methodology reflected Tripodi’s Medusa Plan and included “provocations, inducement to desertion, creating confusion and apprehension.”

Some BUNCIN intelligence activities were directed against “senior foreign government officials” and were “blamed on other government agencies or even on the intelligence services of other nations.” Other BUNCIN activities were directed against American civic and political groups. 34

So…in other words, Operation Chaos was continuing only now the BNDD had been added to its burgeoning army of intelligence personnel waging war (for the Big 3) against ‘security risks’. It continued well into the 1970’s, as documented in a 1975 Senate investigation. (see simple timeline January 1975)

This is where Conein really comes into play, and not just as a ‘consultant’.

While BNDD officials managed BNDD officials managed BUNCIN’s legal activities, Conein at the SIO managed its not legal ones. According to Conein’s administrative deputy, Rich Kobakoff, “BUNCIN was an experiment in how to finesse the law. The end product was intelligence, not seizures or arrests.

Conein selected CIA agents Robert Medell and William Logay to manage BUNCIN.

A Bay of Pigs veteran born in Cuba, Medell was initially assigned to the Twofold program. Medell was BUNCIN’s “covert” agent and recruited its principal agents. All of his assets had previously worked for the CIA, and all believed they were working for it again. 34

Medell started running agents in March 1973 with the stated goal of penetrating the Trafficante organization.

That’s important, because since Trafficante was an integral part to the CIA drug-trafficking right exactly at that time, there would be no arrests. It was more just a misdirection and a way to keep BNDD agents busy but hamstrung as to actually being able to stop any of it in any significant way.

Medell’s Principal Agent was Bay of Pigs veteran Guillermo Tabraue, whom the CIA paid $1,400 a week. While receiving this princely sum, Tabraue participated in the “Alvarez-Cruz” drug smuggling ring.

Medell also recruited agents from Manuel Artime’s anti-Castro Cuban organization (CIA code:AM/WORLD). Former CIA officer and White House “Plumber” Howard Hunt had been Artime’s case officer for years, dating back to the Kennedy Administration. Many members of Artime’s organization had worked for Ted Shackley while Shackley was the CIA’s station chief in Miami.

Howard Hunt and Manuel Artime

howard-hunt-and-manuel-artime-1977

The CIA supplied BUNCIN’s assets with forged IDs that enabled them to work for foreign governments, including Panama, Venezuela and Costa Rica.

Note: One extremely interesting point that Valentine brings up is how the money was laundered to pay such assets who were ‘off the books’. In one such example:

In October 1972 he was sent to New York City and assigned to an enforcement group as a cover. His paychecks came from BNDD funds, but the program was reimbursed by the CIA through the Bureau of Mines. The program was authorized by the “appropriate” Congressional committee. 34

The Bureau of Mines???? Bet many of you never thought to FOIA that place for tracking down CIA assets. I just wonder…could L. Ron Hubbard or any other scientologists-come-CIA-assets have been paid that way? Could be worth pursuing just to see what falls out of the closets.

Anywho…

Under BUNCIN cover, CIA anti-Castro assets reportedly kidnapped and assassinated people in Colombia and Mexico. BUNCIN’s White House sponsors also sent CIA anti-Castro Cuban assets to gather dirt on Democratic politicians in Key West. With BUNCIN, federal drug law enforcement sank to new lows of political repression and corruption.34

That is part of that so-called ‘nothing’ that the Washington Post was still helping to cover up even after Conein had died –

He was in media headlines in the mid-1970s when then-Sen. Lowell Weicker (R-Conn.) investigated allegations that a DEA unit was preparing to arrange the assassination of drug lords. These charges were denied, and nothing was ever proven. 32

Ah yes, but their meaning of proven was completely hamstrung by deliberately sabotaging any evidence pointing to them by monitoring all communications thereby making the evidence inadmissible in court.

Can’t forget that particular Machiavellian twist?

According to BNDD agent Strickler about this whole “war on drugs” era – “Bad things happened” – like allowing drug shipments into the U.S. without telling the “real” BNDD agents.

Yes, “individual stations allowed this,” SIO Director John Warner confirmed.

Strickler tried to clean things up, he knew exactly which CIA people were guilty of sabotaging cases in Latin America and he wanted to get them indicted. Next thing you know? Our man Seymour Boulten insisted that he be reassigned – somewhere he could do nothing to interfere with their nefarious goings-on.

Much was made in the media about the public aspect of President Nixon’s Operation Two-Fold. But, what you didn’t hear about was its covert aspect – kidnapping and assassinating traffickers who were infringing on their market or not playing ball in some way.

john_e-_ingersoll“BNDD Director John E. Ingersoll himself confirmed the existence of this covert facet of Twofold. Its purpose, he said, was to put people in deep cover in the U.S. to develop intelligence on drug trafficking, particularly from South America. Ingersoll said he got approval from Attorney General John Mitchell and then passed the operation on to John Bartels, the first administrator of the DEA.”34

So wait…the reason they were kidnapping and assassinating traffickers was for intelligence purposes? Get a lot of intelligence out of dead guys do they?

Get out of town. That’s just too stupid for words.

And check this – Ingersoll’s answer when asked why he allowed this? Because the unit did not operate inside the U.S., and therefore he thought it was legal.

Bet he didn’t check it out much either…right?

kara thrace - battlestar galactica

Ingersoll added that he was surprised that no one from the Rockefeller Commission asked him about it. Yea. Sure. I just bet he was, especially considering the Commission was ordered not to allow any evidence to be examined.

In the spring and summer of 1973, the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate heard months of testimony on Richard Nixon’s Reorganization Plan Number 2 (33)  which proposed the creation of a single federal agency to consolidate and coordinate the government’s drug control activities.

john_r-_bartels_jrThis new version of Drug Lords Central, as I call it, was formed July 1973 – the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration). Starting in October 1973, for the next two years John R. Bartels, Jr. (whose father was a federal Judge) was assigned as its Chief. His deputy would be CIA agent and integral part of facilitating drug-trafficking – Terrence Burke.

chart-of-bndd-and-dea-history

Bartels was a ‘team player’, and as such was completely suborned by Seymour Bolten and the CIA. The first thing they did was to move Lucein Conein and the CIA’s ‘special’ unit in the BNDD on over into its NEW form in the DEA.

This started with Bartels establishing a ‘priority’ on foreign clandestine narcotics collection – the better for the CIA to monitor their competition and protect their asset traffickers, you see.

So, in age-old British ‘you propose it I approve it’ style – sort of a cloaking or pass the buck tactic – the slavemasters, the Big 3, had George M. Belk (the new Assistant Administrator for Intelligence for the DEA) propose a special operations group in intelligence which Bartels immediately approved, followed by in March of 1974, Belk assigning the group to Lucien Conein.

george_m-_belk_assistant_administrator_for_intelligence_dea

Now the Chief of Intelligence Group/Operations (IGO), Lucien Conein administered the DEA Special Operations Group (DEASOG), SFIP and the National Intelligence Officers (NIO) programs.

The chain of command, however, was “unclear” and while Medell reported administratively to Smith, Conein managed operations through a separate chain of command reaching right to William Colby, who had risen to the rank of CIA Director concurrent with the formation of the DEA. 34

How convenient right?

The first DEASOG recruits were CIA officers.

  • Elias P. Chavez – paramilitary and drug control experience in Laos. William Colby’s personnel assistant Jack Mathews had been Chavez’s case officer at the Long Thien base, where General Vang Pao ran his secret drug-smuggling army under Ted Shackley’s auspices from 1966-1968.
  • Nicholas Zapata – paramilitary and drug control experience in Laos.

A group of eight CIA officers followed:

  • Wesley Dyckman – Chinese linguist with service in Vietnam, was assigned to San Francisco.
  • Louis J. Davis – a veteran of Vietnam and Laos, was assigned to the Chicago Regional Intelligence Unit.
  • Christopher Thompson – from the CIA’s Phoenix Program in Vietnam went to San Antonio.
  • Hugh E. Murray – veteran of Pakse and Bolivia (where he participated in the capture of Che Guevara), was sent to Tucson.
  • Thomas D. McPhaul – worked with Conein in Vietnam, and was sent to Dallas.
  • Thomas L. Briggs – veteran of Laos and a friend of Shackley’s, went to Mexico.
  • Vernon J. Goertz – a Shackley friend who had participated in the Allende coup, went to Venezuela.
  • David A. Scherman – a Conein friend and former manager of the CIA’s interrogation center in Da Nang, was sent to sunny San Diego.

The eleventh and twelfth members were:

  • Gary Mattocks – ran CIA counter-terror teams in Vietnam’s Delta
  • Robert Simon – interrogator

Added later:

  • Terry Baldwin
  • Barry Carew
  • Joseph Lagattuta

According to Davis, Conein created DEASOG specifically to do Operation Phoenix program-style jobs overseas: the kind where a paramilitary officer breaks into a trafficker’s house, takes his drugs, and slits his throat. 

If they couldn’t assassinate the target, they would bomb his labs or use psychological warfare to make him look like he was a DEA informant, so his own people would kill him.

Ted Shackley had also lent a hand to CIA Director William Colby and Lucien Conein to set up DEASOG. He brought in “his” people, including Tom Clines, whom Shackley placed in charge of the CIA’s Caribbean operations.

Clines, like Shackley and Bolten, knew all the exile Cuban terrorists and traffickers on the DEASOG payroll. CIA officer Vernon Goertz worked for Clines in Caracas as part of the CIA’s parallel mechanism under DEASOG cover. 34

As cover for the DEASOG first operation called DEACON 1, Conein’s 11th addition to his DEASOG roster – Gary Mattocks – set up a front company designed to improve relations between Cuban and American businessmen. Meanwhile, through the CIA, he recruited members of the Artime organization including Watergate burglars Rolando Martinez and Bernard Barker, as well as Che Guevara’s murderer, Felix Rodriguez.

Conein had originally planned to have 50 NIOs operating worldwide by 1977. But the slew of Watergate-related scandals forced the DEA to curtail its NIO program and reorganize its covert operations staff and functions in order to hide them better, essentially permanently corrupting the U.S. ‘drug enforcement’ process forever.

One of the scandals involving Conein, the DEA and the CIA was the DEACON 3 operation.

DEACON 3 targeted the Aviles-Perez organization in Mexico.

What?

leading - is that so raised eyebrows

Whoo boy. You know what that is?

A direct connection between Hubbard, Scientology, and the CIA drug-trafficking.

I suggest you read my post going into a number of details about all that, titled: The Strange History of the Scientology Ship Aries – Drugs, Murder and the CIA. but here’s just one excerpt from it –

But, right about now, 1968 here, when Warren Hudson and (scientologist Guardian Office and Sea Organization member) Jerry McDonald are messing with Mafia-man Lawrence Fassler (Perez network) is exactly when the CIA began moving in on the drug trade in this part of the world. And yes, knowingly allowing and even tremendously increasing the flow into America.

That’s what McDonald and Hudson are doing mixed up in all this, and that’s why L. Ron Hubbard would allow Guardian Office intelligence head, Terry Milner, to help these guys out.

Because…let’s not forget, Hubbard had been a CIA asset himself for almost twenty years by this time, using scientology as a front group to run political action activities.

See these posts for further information:

Political Action as per Hubbard’s handler Miles Copeland (CIA NOC agent) included anything from lobbying to assassination, from propaganda and financial “aid” to dissuasion which was quite a euphemism for what was essentially terrorizing someone. It was described by Miles as:

any act designed to frighten an enemy away from some particular activity, or to provoke him into irrational behaviour suiting our strategic purposes

Ah. But ‘financial aid‘ – it sounds so innocent doesn’t it? – yet under that came all manner of horrible operations. Guns and air-cover for drug operations to buy said guns, and worst of all, allowing the massive importation of drugs into the U.S. to poison young Americans.

Since its all really a heavily slavemaster (CIA/Vatican/British) deal anyway, do you see why it would be no problem for CIA asset L. Ron Hubbard to have his boys all mixed up with drug and gun running? Including checking out the local yokels in preparation for the “CIA way” of doing things. Which is pretty much what happened, all things considered.

 

The CIA-controlled BNDD had first targeted the Perez organization by taking out mafia-man Lawrence Fassler, and re-directing control of the flow of drugs, at the U.S. end, over to the Brotherhood of Eternal Love.

You do realize, that this was one of the very first things that was done under the just created BNDD. They took out Fassler, using SCIENTOLOGISTS to do so.

Things went along swimmingly, but then the Brotherhood got a little out of line, necessitating the bringing in of CIA asset Ron Stark to take the helm the following year, 1969.

In order to again re-route the massive drug network coming from the now newly controlled Sinoloa Cartel (by CIA Asset Quintero, who is alleged to have assassinated Perez) and to take the heat of the money launderers such as Robert Vesco and Billy Hitchcock-Mellon, the BNDD, primarily using Terrence Burke and Paul Knight, staged a ‘takedown’ of the Brotherhood – pinning it all onto also CIA asset Timothy Leary.

This ‘big bust’ was used to helped push through the formation of the DEA, where the CIA, yet again (on orders from the Big 3) went after establishing new and more extensive controls on the former Perez network – that’s DEACON 3.

Conein had assigned his DEASOG agents Eli Chavez, Nick Zapata and Barry Carew to DEACON 3.

A veteran CIA officer who spoke Spanish, Carew had served as a special police adviser in Saigon before joining the BNDD. Carew was assigned as Conein’s Latin American desk officer and managed Chavez and Zapata (aka “the Mexican Assassin”) in Mexico.

According to Chavez, a White House Task Force under Howard Hunt had started the DEACON 3 case. The Task force provided photographs of the Aviles Perez compound in Mexico, from whence truckloads of marijuana were shipped to the U.S.

Funds were allotted in February 1974, at which point Chavez and Zapata traveled to Mexico City as representatives of the North American Alarm and Fire Systems Company. In Mazatlán, they met with Carew, who stayed at a fancy hotel and played tennis every day, while Chavez and Zapata, whom Conein referred to as “pepper-bellies,” fumed in a flea-bag motel.

An informant arranged for Chavez, posing as a buyer, to meet Perez. A deal was struck, but DEA chief John Bartels made the mistake of instructing Chavez to brief the DEA’s regional director in Mexico City before making “the buy.”

At this meeting, the DEACON 3 agents presented their operational plan. But when the subject of “neutralizing” [as in assassination] Perez came up, analyst Joan Banister took this to mean assassination. 34

She was correct, of course, that is exactly what Conein’s men were tasked to do.

Bannister did the unthinkable, she reported this to DEA headquarters where the anti-CIA faction (who actually were trying to stop the flow of drugs) turned around and then leaked her report to Washington Post columnist Jack Anderson.

Anderson’s allegation that the DEA was providing cover for a CIA assassination unit included revelations that the Senate had investigated IGO chief Conein for shopping around for assassination devices, like exploding ashtrays and telephones. Conein managed to keep his job, but the trail led to his comrade from the OSS, Mitch Werbell. 34 (also see timeline, January 1975 Arizona Republic news article)

oops

Mitch Werbell

mitch-werbell-1970s

Werbell was a ‘deniable’ asset that Conein used for so-called parallel operations.

Werbell had tried to sell several thousand silenced machine pistols to Robert Vesco, then living in Costa Rica surrounded by drug trafficking Cuban exiles in the Trafficante organization. Trafficante was also, at the time, living in Costa Rica as a guest of President Figueres whose son had purchased weapons from Werbell and used them to arm a death squad he formed with Conein’s DEACON 1 asset Carlos Rumbault, a notorious anti-Castro Cuban terrorist and fugitive drug smuggler.

Vesco, being one of the CIA’s main conduits and money launderers, if you recall.

Several DEA agents tripped over that particular operation, forming part of what you could call the anti-CIA faction. And they had good reason to take that stance.

DEACON 1’s problems began when overt agent Bill Logay charged that covert agent Bob Medell’s anti-Castro Cuban assets had penetrated the DEA on behalf of the Trafficante organization. DEACON 1 secretary Cecelia Plicet fanned the flames by claiming that Conein and Medell were using Principal Agent Tabraue to circumvent the DEA.

In what amounted to an endless succession of controlled deliveries, Tabraue was financing loads of cocaine and using DEACON 1’s Cuban assets to smuggle them into the U.S. Plicet said that Medell and Conein worked for “the other side” and wanted the DEA to fail. These accusations prompted an investigation, after which Logay was reassigned to inspections and Medell was reassigned and replaced by Gary Mattocks, an NIO member of the Dirty Dozen. 34

So, simply out with one dirty agent and in with another, is what happened there.

But, as you can see, the Big 3 were springing leaks everywhere now, and their nasty Gladio take-over-the-world drug money operations were definitely starting to take a toll even on their own agents.

Example –

The same month that DEACON 3 agents were despatched to Mexico, DEA Agent Anthony Triponi, a former Green Beret and member of Operation Twofold, was admitted to St. Luke’s Hospital in New York “suffering from hypertension.”

DEA inspectors found Triponi in the psychiatric ward, distraught because he had broken his “cover” and now his “special code” would have to be changed.

Thinking he was insane, the DEA inspectors called former chief inspector Patrick Fuller in California, just to be sure. As it turned out, everything Triponi had said about Twofold was true! The incredulous DEA inspectors called the CIA and were stunned when they were told: “If you release the story, we will destroy you.”34

That last bolded part should be well-noted by you, because this is their policy. It’s what happened to Gary Webb, and many others, including current attempts to destroy myself and my husband’s lives, probably because we are doing something no one has ever done, including Valentine.

I am bringing together the ENTIRE network of the slavemasters, the Big 3. I am exposing that, not just following (or falling for) the old ‘it’s the CIA’ only propaganda line.

Other good people have tried to bring governmental pressure to expose and stop these things, but I think they were not well enough informed that their own government has been completely suborned where it really matters, and what the basic tactics are that never change with these nutjobs. This is another reason why I spend the time I do to educate people on the basic slavemaster methods of taking over and enslaving populations, currently done in such a way as to delude said populations into the idea that their life is ‘improving’ because of it.

As to investigations of the drug-trafficking, pressure became such that by 1975, Congress and the Justice Department were having to actually (or at least appear to) investigate the DEA’s relations with the CIA.

In the process they stumbled on, among other things, plots to assassinate Torrijos and Noriega in Panama, as well as Tripodi’s Medusa Program.

In a draft report, one DEA inspector described Medusa as follows:

Topics considered as options included psychological terror tactics, substitution of placebos to discredit traffickers, use of incendiaries to destroy conversion laboratories, and disinformation to cause internal warfare between drug trafficking organizations; other methods under consideration involved blackmail, use of psychopharmacological techniques, bribery and even terminal sanctions.34

You see how similar that is to what Miles Copeland described as ‘political action’ –

Political Action as per L. Ron Hubbard’s handler Miles Copeland (CIA NOC agent) included anything from lobbying to assassination, from propaganda and financial “aid” to dissuasion which was quite a euphemism for what was essentially terrorizing someone.

It was described by Miles as:

any act designed to frighten an enemy away from some particular activity, or to provoke him into irrational behaviour suiting our strategic purposes

 

Intro and History

Section 9.  Investigations Smeshtigations

Despite the flurry of investigations, new President Gerald Ford reconfirmed the CIA’s narcotic intelligence collection arrangement with the DEA.

Much of the continued success by the Big 3 puppet, the CIA, of carrying out their nasty WAR against American citizens through importing drugs, is attributed to Seymour Bolten. It was his staff that handled “all requests for files from the Church Committee,” investigations, which then concluded that allegations of drug smuggling by CIA assets and proprietaries “lacked substance.”

Now you can see how really utterly disgusting what BNDD head Ingersoll said about the Rockefeller Commission was: that he was surprised that no one from the Rockefeller Commission asked him about it.

Likewise, with what the Washington Post said in Seymour Bolten’s obituary:

He was in media headlines in the mid-1970s when then-Sen. Lowell Weicker (R-Conn.) investigated allegations that a DEA unit was preparing to arrange the assassination of drug lords. These charges were denied, and nothing was ever proven. 32

The ‘nothing’ that wasn’t nothing, was never proven because Bolten was in control of what information the Commission was getting and what they did with it!

So, of course, the Rockefeller Commission likewise gave the CIA a clean bill of health, falsely stating that Operation Twofold inspections project was terminated in 1973.

It wasn’t. It’s a play on words. It ‘terminated’ because the BNDD was terminated as an organization. But in the new DEA, it was resurrected under Conein and his DEASOG unit.

For you scientologist-studiers out there, this is like saying ‘illegal operations were terminated in 1980 when the Guardian office was disbanded.” But then they moved right on over under the new Office of Special Affairs.

Exact same thing.

The Rockefeller Commission completely covered-up the existence of the operation unit hidden within the inspections program.

Scientology completely covered up that their Conein-affiliated activities were now hidden within the new Office of Special Affairs and the Church of Spiritual Technology.

Continuing on here –

The Justice Department also investigated “allegations of fraud, irregularity, and misconduct” in the DEA – called the DeFeo investigation – which went on until July 1975.

Not too surprisingly though, in March of 1976, Deputy Attorney General Richard Thornburgh announced: there were no findings to warrant criminal prosecutions.

This was also the same time, the same month even, that the Church of Scientogy’s case against the DEA seeking FOIA documents about scientology had the precedent set that would rule all following cases and result in blocking the release of the kind of documents that would “warrant criminal prosecutions”.

The Ludington Daily News, March 1, 1976, Monday: Find New Loophole in Information Act, David E Anderson

the_ludington_daily_news_mon__mar_1__1976_

Later that same year, Congresswoman Bella Abzug took up the mantle and tried to get some accountability going with the CIA. She submitted questions to the new Director of Central Intelligence George H.W. Bush, about the CIA’s central role in international drug trafficking. Bush’s response was to cite a 1954 agreement with the Justice Department that gave the CIA the right to block prosecution or keep its crimes secret in the name of national security.

– – –

In 1977, the year of the raid by the Justice Department on scientology’s guardian Office, the DEA’s Assistant Administrator for Enforcement sent a memo, co-signed by the six enforcement division chiefs, to DEA chief Peter Bensinger. As the memo stated, “All were unanimous in their belief that present CIA programs were likely to cause serious future problems for DEA, both foreign and domestic.

Peter Bensinger ignored it and continued playing bag-man for the CIA using the DEA. He created a program called CENTAC to supposedly target drug trafficking organization worldwide through the early 1980s. As its director Dennis Dayle famously said, “The major targets of my investigations almost invariably turned out to be working for the CIA.

Conein’s IGO was disbanded in 1976, as part of misdirecting public attention seeking after a grand jury sought DEACON I intelligence regarding several drug busts and because of the case against the DEA by the scientologists. So they can say “we don’t do that anymore.” while simply shifting operations to a new location, you understand.

As covered earlier, citing a 1954 agreement George H.W. Bush made sure it was known that CIA acquired intelligence [remember how they deliberately surveilled their own operatives to make what they were doing inadmissible in court] cannot be used in prosecutions. The CIA refused to identify its assets in court and 27 prosecutions were dismissed on national security grounds.

A number of DEASOG CIA officers and assets simply shunted on over to work for Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North, the key National Security Council aide under President Ronald Reagan in the Iran-Contra drug and terror network.

Francisco Chanes, an erstwhile DEACON asset, owned two seafood companies that would soon allegedly come to serve as fronts in Oliver North’s Contra supply network, receiving and distributing tons of Contra cocaine.34

CIA officer/DEA agent Gary Mattocks was deemed “unwelcome in the DEA” but was simply moved back to the CIA officially and assigned to the CIA’s narcotics unit in Peru, but soon joined the Contra support operation as Eden Pastrora’s case officer.

In that capacity Mattocks was present in 1984 when CIA officers handed pilot Barry Seal a camera and told him to take photographs of Sandinista official Federico Vaughn loading bags of cocaine onto Seal’s plane. A DEA “special employee,” Seal was running drugs for Jorge Ochoa Vasquez and purportedly using Nicaragua as a transit point for his deliveries.

North asked DEA officials to instruct Seal, who was returning to Ochoa with $1.5 million, to deliver the cash to the Contras. When the DEA officials refused, North leaked a blurry photo, purportedly of Vaughn, to the right-wing Washington Times. For partisan political purposes, on behalf of the Reagan administration, Oliver North blew the DEA’s biggest case at the time, and the DEA did nothing about it, even though DEA Administrator Jack Lawn said in 1988, in testimony before the Subcommittee on Crime of the Committee on the Judiciary, that leaking the photo “severely jeopardized the lives” of agents.34

Coming all the way up to 1989 now, the CIA instructed Gary Mattocks to testify as a defense witness at the trial of DEACON 1 Principal Agent Gabriel Tabraue who had earned $75 million from drug trafficking, while working as a CIA and DEA asset.

75 MILLION dollars people. That’s just horrifying.

The judge declared a mistrial based on Mattocks’s testimony. Of course he did, why are we not surprised.

Tabraue was released.

As I said I would do, here is a simplified timeline of everything discussed leading up to what the Guardian’s Office stepped on that got them into such hot water. There are a number of things that show up much more clearly when they are lined up next to each other.

Pay attention though because there are a number of items included in this timeline that are not discussed in the previous larger sections.

Intro and History

Section 10

SIMPLE TIMELINE

Federal anti-narcotics effort began in 1909 with the Opium Exclusion Act, which barred the import of opium except for medicinal purposes. Subsequent laws enacted prior to World War II made it illegal to import or export narcotics in any form, or to make, sell, buy, or transport narcotics unless for medicinal or scientific purposes and under approval of the Treasury Department’s Narcotics Bureau.

1930 –

This marks the beginning of the standard slavemaster WAR against a population, in this case Americans. The Bureau of Narcotics was then created in the Treasury Department in 1930 to enforce these narcotics laws, most of which were based upon the power of Congress to impose taxes. They slipped drug laws through underneath tax law. Under most of these laws, merely possessing a narcotic without being registered with the Treasury Department was considered evidence that some illegal act had been committed to obtain it. If you were a drug dealer that’s registered with the Treasury Department, it’s all good then. Clearly we are beginning to see the outlining of approved drug dealers and unapproved drug dealers.

1945 –

British, Vatican, and American Intelligence create “stay-behind” paramilitary organizations, with the aim of countering communism through sabotage, guerrilla warfare, assassinations and coups. Code-named Operation Gladio after the first “cell” in Rome, Italy. Financed by smuggling illegal drugs into the United States.

1947 –

The French CIA (SDECE) supported the French Operation Gladio network – codenamed  “Plan Bleu”.

1948 –

  • Las Palmas Gladio cell set-up, financed by drug-trafficking
  • French Gladio unit formed “Western Union Clandestine Committee” (WUCC) to coordinate secret unorthodox warfare.
  • The Office of Policy Coordination (OPC) was the espionage and counter-intelligence branch of the Central Intelligence Agency, created in 1948. It later merged with the Office of Special Operations in the time of Miles Copeland’s “arrangement” with Hubbard and scientology (1955) and became known as the DDP complex – DDP standing for Deputy Director, Plans.
  • Gladio ‘strategy of tension’ became manifest was in targeting specific populations with narcotics to distract and weaken the people. Heroin was the initial drug of choice.
  • Specifically chosen men-of-confidence (for the Vatican) “Lucky” Luciano, Calogero Vizzini and Nicolo Rizzuto worked with the CIA and Operation Gladio to help organize an international drug distribution network between Vietnam, France, and the United States. CIA Director Roscoe Hillenkoetter sent Irving Brown to France to facilitate the drug trafficking operation.
  • Irving Brown recruited and hired Corsican mafia thugs and paid them with CIA money starting in 1948 – he hired a “rugged, fiery Corsican” named Pierre Ferri-Pisani to recruit an elite criminal terror squad to work the docks. For the next four years this goon squad beat people up, terrorized them, and even killed a few until they had complete control of the docks. Irving also worked with Arthur Koestler, British intelligence in the Information Research Department, to get this network going.
  • The Guerini brothers controlled Marseille’s heroin industry. They banned it from being peddled in France at the same time that they were exporting vast quantities of heroin to the United States.
  • George White of later MKULTRA sex and LSD experiments showed up* in Marseille where he was continuing to utilize the cover of his job at the FNB (Federal Narcotics Bureau) to help keep the slavemaster dope-smuggling profits coming.
  • FNB head Anslinger personally ‘ignored’ reports detailing drug dealings among elements of Chang Kai-Shek’s Nationalist forces.’ This selective behavior would continue up to and through both the BNDD and the DEA, following the pattern of how the FBN either ignored or provided political cover for CIA backed allies in both Southeast Asia and later on in Latin America.

1949 –

French Gladio unit hidden as WUCC is integrated into NATO under the name  “Clandestine Planning Committee” (CPC).  The network was supported with elements from SDECE.

1950 –

  • CIA OPC head Frank Wisner was L. Ron Hubbard’s highest-level superior in the OPC when he started the Dianetics Research Foundation front group. In between Hubbard and Wisner there was Kermit Roosevelt Jr., who was recruited into the OPC that same year of 1950 and who ran the political action department.  This is all part of the idea of this big stay-behind “network”, and why it was being financed by such heinous sources like drug-trafficking and religious front groups soliciting exorbitant financial donations from their dupes followers. CIA agent Miles Copeland, L. Ron Hubbard’s handler described ‘political action’ – it included anything from lobbying to assassination, from propaganda and financial “aid” to dissuasion which was quite a euphemism for what was essentially terrorizing someone. It was also described by Miles as: any act designed to frighten an enemy away from some particular activity, or to provoke him into irrational behaviour suiting our strategic purposes
  • OPC operations in China – the CIA, together with British, Russian (yep, it’s true) and Vatican elements were working to suppress the Chinese revolution and were backing the communist guerillas, facilitating Mao Tse-tung taking power in China in 1950, as a “democratic dictator”. – remember OPC is part of Operation Gladio operations installing dictators in specifically chosen countries around the world.
  • China ‘communism’ then used as excuse for drug-trafficking. Frank Wisner, CIA chief of Special Operations, immediately sent Paul Helliwell to Taiwan. Helliwell’s supposed job was to “help” Chiang Kai-shek to prepare for a future invasion of Communist China – but what he was really doing was getting control of of the drug routes.
  • Helliwell (for the CIA) created a pair of front companies to supply and finance the surviving forces of Chiang’s Kuomintang Army – he was put in charge of this operation. This included establishing Civil Air Transport (CAT), a Taiwan-based airline, and the SEA Supply Company, a shipping company in Bangkok. The junction of Burma, Thailand, and Laos is called the Golden Triangle. It was the site of the bulk of the world’s opium production.
  • OSS-come-CIA agents Paul Helliwell, E. Howard Hunt and Lucien Conein all then operated throughout Burma, Cambodia, and Vietnam to facilitate the Operation Gladio heroin smuggling. They used the Corsican network (inclusive of American and Italian Mafia elements) to practice a form of “unconventional political warfare” using heroin on Americans. This network is what is commonly referred to as The French Connection.
  • OSS China hand Willis Bird ran the Bangkok, Thailand to head an office of Sea Supply, Inc. which began furnishing  weapons to opium‑smuggling Nationalist Chinese (KMT) troops in Burma. He coordinated CAT airdrops to KMT troops and ran an engineering firm that constructed short airstrips used for the collection of Laotian opium.
  • Sea Supply provided arms and aid to Phao Sriyanond, the head of Thailand’s 45,000‑man paramilitary police force called the BPP (Border Patrol Police) and reputedly one of the most corrupt men in the history of that corruption‑ridden nation. For years his troops protected KMT opium smugglers and directed the drug trade from Thailand.
  • Harvard grad (and new CIA recruit) Paul Emerson Knight was hired by FBN director Harry Anslinger in the fall of 1950 and is assigned to the New York office.

1951 –

  • Kermit Roosevelt – CIA OPC ops with Licio Gelli and Gladio terrorist units in South America begin.
  • Michael Sindona – Pope Pacelli’s “special” financial assistant Nogara had retired, prompting the IOR (the Vatican Bank) to begin forming a “trust” of Catholic and non-Catholic financial advisors, who became known as uomini di fiducia, or “men of confidence.” of which Sindona and Gelli were members. In support of Operation Gladio, Sindona began forging close Vatican banking links with the dictators of Argentina, Paraguay, Uraguay, Venezuela, and Nicaragua. Of the Nicaraguan dictator, Somoza, he told a Rome lawyer: Doing business with a one man dictatorship is much easier than doing business with democratically elected Governments. … They also aspire to honesty, that’s bad for the banking business.
  • Licio Gelli – Operation Gladio member and Vatican intelligence asset. Smuggles Klaus Barbie into Argentina, then Boliva. Gelli previously was NAZI SS Herman Goring’s liaison during World War II,  together with Frank G. Wisner, was deeply involved in Vatican “Ratlines” smuggling of Nazis to South America – hiding them from facing the justice they so richly deserved. Gelli worked with a Croatian Roman Catholic priest named Krujoslav Dragonovic. Involved in smuggling out Klaus Barbie, hiding him in Europe until 1951. Gelli was assigned to South America setting up Gladio terrorist units to install dictators. Hooks up with Argentinean General Juan Peron and enlisted his help bringing Barbie to South America to be used in the drug-trafficking network and to form covert Gladio death squads; Angels of Death and Triple A.
  • The SDCE code name for their Operation Gladio heroin smuggling was Operation X From 1951 to 1954, it was controlled by Colonel Belleux and Gen. Raoul Salan for the Expeditionary Corps. Maurice Belleux is listed in the personnel database of the OSS – the predecessor to the CIA. In interview, Belleux said that French military intelligence had financed all their covert operations (Operation Gladio ops overseen by the British and the Vatican) from the control of the Indochina drug trade. The French paratroopers fighting with hill tribes collected the opium and French aircraft would fly the opium down to Saigon and the Sino-Vietnamese mafia that was the instrument of French intelligence would then distribute the opium. The central bank accounts, the sharing of the profits, were all controlled by French military intelligence, in turn controlled by higher ups in British and Vatican intelligence.
  • The ‘big 3’ first began exerting pressure on the SDCE to better conform to ‘their’ plans. Maurice Belleux objected to letting the Americans operate ‘sensitive operations’ on their own, newly arrived commander-in-chief and high commissioner for Indochina, General Jean de Lattre de Tassigny, shared this opinion and tried to brake what he referred to as “the CIA’s ambitions.” They failed.
  • Covert shift underway, towards utilizing Latin America for future drug-trafficking. The usual suspects from the CHINA drug-trafficking had various assignments to begin this conversion, while also attempting to take over control of certain governments that were less than friendly to the supposed “western” way.
  • The CIA drew on old China hands with exposure to KMT traffic (Chennault, Willauer, William Pawley, Howard Hunt) to set up the overthrow of the Arbenz government in Guatemala. CIA officer Howard Hunt, with his friend Lucien Conein and Conein’s friend WerBell of OSS operations in China under Helliwell, set up what would eventually become the Latin American branch of the KMT-backed World Anti-Communist League. Four years later the chairman of this group was the Guatemalan attorney of New Orleans Mafia leader Carlos Marcello – who was in turn directly tied to Santos Trafficante JR., the new kingpin for the Big 3’s alternate drug-smuggling route. (see 1968).
  • ‘New Age’ type religious front groups start being used as part of Operation Gladio activities – including drug smuggling and money laundering.
  • Pierre Lafitte, connected to Santos Trafficante, Jr. began ‘officially’ working with George White as an ‘undercover informer’, but he was also acting as his pimp and general go-to man for White’s MKULTRA projects for the CIA. He helped George White decorate the apartment that George White had just been paid thousands of dollars by Sydney Gottlieb to begun covert experiments of dosing people with LSD, otherwise known as George White’s CIA MKULTRA subprojects. Lafitte hired the prostitutes they used to lure victims into White’s lair. Also assisting White were Gil and Pat Fox.
  • May 1 – Korean ‘reverend’ Moon, an Moral Re-Armament recruit was tasked by the CIA and British intelligence to start the “Unification Church” which would later yield the CAUSA front group instrumental in later helping the Iran-Contra guns-for drugs operation.
  • June – L Ron Hubbard, working under CIA NOC agent Miles Copeland incorporates the Founding Church of Scientology of Washington DC.
  • With the Corsican network drug-trafficking massive amounts of heroin aimed right at the United States, came some law changes in the U.S., which far from stopping the flow, actually made it easier for the slavemasters to control the flow and keep Americans from stopping it. The first time penalties with some teeth were set, was after WWII ended (of course). Mandatory minimum sentences were set for most narcotics offenses in 1951 (PL 82-255). Making the laws now have teeth appears to the public as if you are “cracking down” when in reality they were operating to increase the drug trade into the U.S. exponentially.

1955 –

  • Miles Copeland, the NOC agent (Non Official Cover) becomes L. Ron Hubbard’s direct handler in 1955 when he began the big ‘founding’ Church of Scientology push.
  • George White ‘loans’ Piere LaFitte to Hank Greenspun to help with James Phelan (the propaganda outlet for what they were doing in Las Vegas). Besides the big side-show about ‘busting’ prostitutes etc.etc., in the shadows were the CIA and Santos Trafficante, the long-term associate of East-Coast based mafia man Meyer Lansky (and George White personal contact for OSS/CIA work) was gearing up to take over the Lansky Empire – as requested. Greenspun loved to create a ‘man of mystery’ image around LaFitte around that time.
  • Between 1946 and 1955 the French Mixed Airborne Commando Group (MACG*) and the French Air Force managed the shipments of opium from Burma to Laos under the SDCE Operation X. By 1955 this had been forced to become under the control of and in cooperation with the other Operation Gladio elements – British, Vatican and Americans. The French version of the CIA (the SDCE*) coordinating with the CIA, MI6, and the Vatican IOR and its “men of confidence” to control the routes and, of course, divvy up all those drug profits.
  • CIA takes control of the French Operation X, per interview with Maurice Belleux. Belleux stated that the US took over the role of France in Southeast Asia using the excuse that they were the ‘defender of Western interests against Communist expansion‘ – their typical propaganda line.
  • Edward Lansdale, CIA agent, spearheaded the PR campaign of supposedly breaking up drug rings, when in fact they were actually being simply taken over by the triad (CIA/MI6/Vatican) with the result of squeezing the French out of their position of control.
  • Fake war begun (Vietnam War) whose real purpose was to liquidate the Corsican supply network, while Sea Supply (Helliwell) cemented ties with their already existing opium smuggling lines with the Chinese of the Golden Triangle and with the now corrupted Thai border police. The French were defeated using the Vietminh and were forced to withdraw from Indochina that same year. The CIA had effectively pushed aside the SDECE.

1956 –

  • Thai people tried to stop what the heroin smuggling and production is was doing to their country. Successfully achieved getting a government proposal regarding ban on opium sales. Drug-trafficker and Thai Dictator Phao killed that initiative, claiming that it wouldn’t be able to find revenue sources to replace the lost funds.
  • March – Because Phao had brought unwanted attention to the slavemasters drug-trafficking, official cover CIA agents within the Thai Embassy started began planting false or exaggerated reports to to the State Department, in order to have a “reason” to go to war and take out Phao. Reason stated was that Phao had supposedly developed “communist” leanings.
  • Another law (PL 84-728) increased the penalties and would allow the death sentence imposed upon someone convicted of selling heroin to a minor. You gotta appreciate the irony here, considering the huge flow coming into the U.S. by this time.

1957 –

  • Michael Sindona (Vatican man of confidence and Operation Gladio money launderer) became closely associated with the Gambino family (Sicilian Mafia) and was chosen to manage their profits from heroin sales where he pioneered anstalten which is a term for a Swiss or Liechtenstein-based corporation with only one stockholder.
  • Vatican banker Sindona involved in channeling CIA money to the Vatican towards the Christian Democratic Party.
  • Thai OPC/Gladio installed Thai dictator Phao was out due to a ‘coup’ engineered and assisted by the U.S. and the British. Just two years earlier the British Prime Minister was exchanging gifts with this man and he’s just everyone’s darling.
  • Despite installing another dictator, the people of Thailand began an aggressive campaign to eliminate drug smuggling within its borders.

1958 –

  • NATO founded the Allied Clandestine Committee (ACC) – Operation Gladio – to coordinate secret warfare.
  • Replacing the previous Marseille operation, the first ‘new’ heroin refineries sprang up in Laos under the control of General Ouane Rattikone. South Vietnamese Vice President Nguyen Cao Ky in Saigon was initially in charge of smuggling from the Laotian refineries to the South Vietnamese; and General Lansdale’s office was working closely with Ky. Lansdale himself was one of Ky’s heartiest supporters, and Conein went along with whatever Lansdale said.
  • The CIA, with full knowledge of what they were doing, began pushing heroin on the GI’s being sent into Vietnam all throughout the mid-to-late 1950’s and the 1960’s. This new “heroin wave” rose to epidemic status by 1970, and Congressional reports indicated that some 22 percent of all U.S. soldiers sampled the drugs and 15 percent became hooked.

1959 –

  • Sindona bought his first bank – the Banca Privata Italia – together with the Vatican IOR and it’s principal American bankers Continental Illinois Bank and Trust Company (where Mormon David Matthew Kennedy chaired). This wasn’t just any old Mormon, Kennedy held a position with the First Presidency, the top governing body of the Mormon Church.
  • Thailand unleashed a full military assault on the opium trade that forced the relocation of the slavemasters drug smuggling headquarters from Burma to towns in northwestern Laos that then become opium centers and CIA bases.
  • CIA agent William Young,born in Burma to American religious missionaries, was posted Bangkok. When the CIA was being forced to move their smuggling operations to Laos, it was Young that introduced Joe Houdicheck (Young’s CIA case officer) to General Vang Po, the chief of the opium-growing Meo tribesman. Vang Pao then ran operations using over 30,000 Meo tribesman out of the CIA air base in his territory at Long Tieng. He used them to smash any counter-intention to the CIA’s drug smuggling by calling detractors “communists” – like any good little slavemaster puppet would. Thousands of his own people died in this completely faked war. In exchange for selling his people as canon fodder, the ‘Big 3’ allowed him to make a fortune selling opium.

1959 –

  • CIA drug-trafficking agent Paul Helliwell transferred to Miami in late 1959, early 1960, to provide business cover for the CIA’s Cuban operations – while concurrently still being attache’ for Thailand (until 1972). He and his motley crew worked on developing “relationships” with drug-dealing Cubans that they would use in the Bay of Pigs invasion. Helliwell set up shop in the offices of the American Bankers Insurance Company. One of the banks directors was also a director of the Miami National Bank where the Meyer Lansky drug-trafficking syndicate passed millions of dollars through to the Swiss Exchange and Investment Bank in Geneva – that was CIA banker Robert Vesco’s bank. Vesco funneled tons of dirty money for CIA black ops (and other people’s) through it.
  • Rizzuto (Italian mafia and CIA asset who outlived the other two original Marseilles traffickers) put ‘in charge’ of converting Havana, Cuba, and the Caribbean into a international drug trafficking center. When Castro took over Cuba January 1, 1959, Rizzuto moved to Caracas, Venezuela – close to the Colombian cocaine sources.

1961 –

  • Covert CIA asset Paul Knight was selected to head up the new permanent FNB office in Istanbul that year. FBN narcotics agents (including George White and Paul Knight) previously operated out of the U.S. Consulate in Istanbul.  CIA agents involved in protecting the drug-trafficking relationship were already well in place. Another example of a CIA/FNB agent already in place was Salvatore Vizzini who often worked with CIA agent Harold Fiedler who had an office in the U.S. consulate. In 1960, while touring the Turkish–Soviet border under Fiedler’s instructions, Vizzini shot and killed two men. Vizzini, in a later interview, stated the shootings were covered up by the FBN and were reported as a “junk deal gone bad.” Yet no report referencing the incident can be found with the FBN’s files. In fact, the CIA is rarely mentioned within any of the reports submitted from Turkey. Vizzini was tight with Lucky Luciano.

1962 –

  • Robert Vesco becomes the go-between for Santos Trafficante and Rizzuto. Vesco goes to Caracas to meet Rizzuto.
  • Paul Helliwell heading up the prestigious Miami law firm, Helliwell, Melrose and DeWolf.
  • Paul Helliwell hooked up with CIA agents Ted Shackley and Tom Clines and became the CIA money route to pay for JM/WAVE. which allowed Shackley to finance unofficial CIA operations against Cuba.
  • CIA agent Terrence Burke working at the Miami CIA station under Theodore Shackley and Tom Clines at the time of the John Kennedy assassination.
  • William Colby started running ran the special division for covert operations in Southeast Asia. His responsibilities specifically included the “secret” CIA war in Laos with its 30,000‑man Meo army. He shared that responsibility with the U.S. ambassador in Laos, William H. Sullivan.

1963 –

  • CIA agent Terrence Burke serving in Laos.
  • Meeting at Mr. Ortolani’s palace on Via Archmidede immediately prior to the Vatican conclave after the death of Pope John XXIII on June 3, 1963. Licio Gelli was part of meeting, as were American Catholic Paul Marcinkus and Michael Sindona who had been hooked up by future Pope Montini to work together with the IOR to launder drug money profits.
  • Montini made Pope – Gelli tasked to form a secret Operation Gladio masonic organization called Propaganda Due or P-2 for short, of which he was to be the Grandmaster. He goes out and joins the Masonic movement in Italy in 1963, rises quickly through the degrees and soon has the authorization to form his own Lodge. Gelli immediately begins accumulating files on people that he targets for membership and he blackmails these people into joining his lodge, systematically recruiting high members of Italy’s military and intelligence services including Orazio Giannini who is head of the country’s financial police, as well as leading industrialists and bankers.
  • Vatican Banker and drug-trafficking money launderer, Michael Sindona, became a member of Propaganda Due (#0501),[1] himself, as did Messieur Ortolani.
  • Gelli opened Propaganda Due branches in Argentina, Venezuela, Paraguay, Bolivia, France, Portugal and Nicaragua. Gelli brings in Klaus Barbie henchmen, as well as well as people from the juntas and death squads such as Jose Lopez Rega.
  • Lucian Conein, one of Helliwell’s China boys, was Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge’s middle-man in the 1963 plot to overthrow South Vietnam’s President Ngo Dinh Diem (who was assassinated along with his brother Ngo Dinh Nhu, the Corsicans’ partner in the drug traffic). Making it clear this was all about drugs not “communism”.
  • Paul Helliwell registers the Bank of the Caribbean Ltd. in the Bahamas.
  • Robert Vesco working closely with Helliwell, cook up having a little known company named Mary Carter Paint acquire Bahamas Developers Ltd. To this new interest in properties the company soon added property on the resort of Paradise Island. Wallace Groves, a partner with Mary Carter Paint in the purchase of Paradise Island granted “Covert Security Approval” (by the CIA) that had been applied for just before his purchase of Paradise Island. It was approved and not canceled until April of 1972.

1964 –

  • summer – the Chinese set off an atomic bomb at Lop Noor – a dead (sea salt) lake north of where all their opium operations were taking place. The message came through loud and clear – the Chinese could just as easily drop a bomb on their drug network, hating them as they did for the centuries of enforcing opium on their people by the Vatican and the British.
  • Orders came on down the intell lines to instruct Mr. Young to set up an intelligence network at Nam Yu, just a few miles north of Houei Sai, where most of the opium was routed to. He used a Kuomintang opium caravan to “insert agents” into China – dubbed the 118A network.
  • Paul Helliwell and Mr. Kanter established the Mercantile Bank and Trust Company used Mercantile to establish accounts for many of their associates.
  • CIA/Vatican bankers began employing to hide the huge amount of money they now had at their fingertips, was by using cut out ‘investors’. I think this is another function that L. Ron Hubbard served as in his capacity as a long-term British/CIA intelligence asset. What they would do is funnel money to a person, say…like Ron Hubbard, who would then open a Swiss bank account at particular banks, deposit the money, and then the money was used or ‘invested’ into CIA black operations even though on the books it still appeared to be there.
  • Numbers of how much money was going in and out of Ron Hubbard’s scientology operation never matched balances in accounts or even the spending habits of Hubbard either as an individual or from behind the scientology corporate shells. A possibly good example is when Hubbard died in 1986 there was only 20 million in his estate, with even a low-ball estimate of hundreds of millions of dollars simply gone, never to appear again. Hubbard never personally spent that kind of money – Witness the recent testament by Lois Reisdorf saying pretty much exactly that: “He lived very modestly. Only had about 8 pairs of pants; shirts etc.”

1965 –

  • CIA banker Robert Vesco incorporated a shell company called International Controls.
  • Paul Helliwell used the Mercantile Bank and Trust Company  to start Castle Bank and Trust Company to launder drug payoffs for Thailand poppy growers for the CIA and their partners-in-crime, the Mafia, as well as to facilitate the hidden transfer of huge sums to finance subversion, paramilitary operations, an occasional coup d’etat, bribery, and payments to foreign informants. Partner Mary Jane Melrose was later an attorney for Resorts International, a Vesco-Lansky operation in which Richard Nixon’s friend Rebozo was said to have an interest.
  • Billy Mellon-Hitchcock, the go between for the Brotherhood of Eternal Love, had his private account at the Helliwell’s CIA front bank – Castle Bank and Trust.  Richard M. Nixon also happened to be one of the three hundred prominent Americans who used Castle Bank to deposit their cash. The bank’s clientele included actor Tony Curtis, the rock group Creedence Clearwater Revival, Playboy publisher Hugh Hefner, Bob Guccione’s Penthouse, Chiang Kai-shek’s daughter and her husband, and billionaire eccentric Howard Hughes.
  • Miami Natl Bank (Helliwell is attorney for that) financed the Outrigger Club, which became a meeting place for Santos Trafficante Jr., Philadelphia mobster and members of the Gambino family. Thus forming a tie between the CIA, the Mafia, and the Vatican through the Gambino’s Vatican IOR banker, Michael Sindona.
  • Terrence Burke’s mentor, or maybe more accurately we should say his trainer in Laos opium smuggling, was a marine vet named Anthony Poshepny. ‘Tony Poe’ took over as head of the CIA’s 118A network in 1965.
  • CIA agent Terrence Burke is station chief in Laos helping to oversee the training of an army of 30,000 Hmong tribesmen who were sicked after some other Laos people designated as “Pathet Lao Communists”. Burke helped to oversee the Hmong growing opium.
  • Terrence received a CIA medal in 1965 for his “work” in Vietnam as CIA station chief in Laos. After serving as a Marine guard at the US Embassy in Rome, he joined the CIA and served as a paramilitary officer in Laos from 1963-1965, working for legendary CIA officer Tony Poshepny at the 118A base near Ban Houei Sai–the epicenter of the Golden Triangle’s opium and heroin trade. Burke received the CIA’s highest award, the Intelligence Star, for gallantry in combat in Laos.
  • November – The Paris Brigade of Intelligence and Intervention, nicknamed Le Mouel’s Brigade, was formed in 1964 by Francois Le Mouel to disrupt an armed robbery ring. In November of 1965 they supposedly ‘tripped over’ the fact that Lyon Gang members were smuggling heroin on biweekly flights to New York. This being, of course, part of the CIA-MI6 driven Corsican Network that they supposedly ‘tripped over’.

1966 –

  • What CIA agent Terrence Burke was doing in Laos as best described by Green Beret Paul Withers: “After completing basic training at Fort Dix in the fall of 1965 [Withers] was sent to Nha Trang, South Vietnam. Although he was ostensibly stationed there, he was placed on ‘loan’ to the CIA in January 1966 and sent to Pak Seng, Laos. Before going there he and his companions were stripped of their uniforms and all American credentials. They were issued Czechoslovakian guns and Korean uniforms. Paul even signed blank sheets of paper at the bottom and the CIA later typed out letters and sent them to his parents and wife. All this was done to hide the fact that there were American troops operating in Laos. The mission in Laos was to make friends with the Meo people and organize and train them to fight the Pathet Lao. One of the main tasks was to buy up the entire local crop of opium. About twice a week an Air America plane would arrive with supplies and kilo bags of opium which were loaded on the plane. Each bag was marked with the symbol of the tribe.“
  • Concurrent with the big re-routing of the drug trade beginning to be fleshed out, the Narcotics Rehabilitation Act (PL 89-793) was passed. It specifically provided that addicts convicted of drug offenses not be sent to prison, but instead be committed to medical institutions for treatment – which means…mental hospitals and other front groups operating under the cover of “religion” like Scientology’s Narconon. This was the real reason for the explosive growth of “drug treatment” centers, which were really operating as observation and experimentation units on the unsuspecting population.
  • International Gladio units were being trained to do internal subversion in Britain and by US instructors at the military base in Las Palmas through the mid-70s. Implemented “strategy of tension” to spread panic and unrest and to directly attack those rising against the slavemasters in any way and provoke them into an armed response.
  • L. Ron Hubbard began spending a rather considerable amount of time in the Operatio Gladio unit base Las Palmas. While there, he established the Guardian Office and it’s Intelligence Bureau on 1 March 1966. Note: This was the vehicle for orchestrating the carrying out Hubbard’s Fair Game policies that still live on today behind the new storefront version of the Guardian Office called the Office of Special Affairs.
  • From 1957-68, Miles Copeland, one of Hubbard’s intelligence handlers, was stationed in Beirut, Lebanon. Miles was engaged upon starting his own “private CIA” particularly starting in 1966. Miles used religious front groups like Scientology and Hubbard and the Unification Church.
  • Copeland contacted and recruited Adnan Khashoggi, a young Arab who was an arms dealer. Together they worked on “a very special kind of political action.” to “blunt Soviet drive”.
  • L. Ron Hubbard suddenly buys the first of his fleet of ships and form the Hubbard Explorational Company Ltd. on November 22, 1966. It was formed with Hubbard and Mary Sue as directors – Hubbard being described as expedition supervisor and Mary Sue as company secretary. This was the actual beginning of what was later called the Sea Organization.
  • On 20 December 1966 the first ship of the Sea Org was purchased, the Enchanter, which was later renamed Diana.The Avon River was purchased, later renamed the Athena. Almost immediately became captained by CIA officer Scott Mayer who used a fake cover name of “Mitchell Spence”. Scott Mayer is listed as “Mayer, CIA” – see CIA FBI NSA Personnel Active in Scientology

1967 –

  • Hubbard leaves Saint Hill (under a nice intelligence cover of being “kicked out” by Britain) and off he and his merry band of dupes go on their mission tasks for Miles Copeland etc.
  • General Ouane Rattikone’s labs are turning out heroin in quantity for the Big 3 drug-traffickers, and with unusually high quality. Most of it ends up in New York, in Harlem. 35,000 addicts, almost half of what it was nation-wide.
  • The Black Panthers were correctly and publicly blaming the CIA for Harlem’s heroin epidemic.
  • The youth of America, and many adults were correctly protesting the Vietnam War as being a horrifyingly destructive farce and not what it was said to be about.
  • Operation Phoenix organized the torture and murder of any Vietnamese suspected of the slightest association with Vietcong – who were rebelling against the slavemasters and their obsessive drug-smuggling and, of course, were therefore positioned as “communist”. According to Colby’s own testimony before a Senate committee, 20,857 Vietcong were murdered in Phoenix’s first two years. The figure of the South Vietnamese government for the same period was over 40,000. Colby euphemistically referred to this as pacification and Lucien Conein described it succinctly as: “If you don’t do what I want, you’re VC.”
  • The Thai and Vietnam people are correctly fighting against what is being done to their countries with all this nasty drug trafficking going on. To try and stop this ‘rebellion’, William Colby and Lucien Conein launch Operation Phoenix. “Phoenix,” [Ed Murphy] said, “was a bounty-hunting program — an attempt to eliminate the opposition. By which I mean the opposition to us, the Americans, getting what we wanted. Which was to control the Vietnamese through our clients — the Diems, the Kys, the Thieus.”
  • March – CIA officer James Angleton imported Colby and Conein’s Operation Phoenix tactics into the Special Operations Division (Security Research Services) specifically to destroy groups like the Black Panthers. Re-named Operation Chaos – it was designed to connect foreign enemies with leaders in the Civil Rights and Anti-War movements. They fabricated documents, planted agent-provocateurs and published false news articles. Chaos opened files on some 300,000 American enemies. In conjunction with military intelligence, the CIA pursued those it considered most dangerous, while the FBI created Operation Hoodwink in a coordinated effort with the CIA.
  • FBN and CIA agent Tom Tripodi was transferred to James Angleton’s Special Operations Division, where Chaos was headquartered. His cover was with a private security firm.
  • The Turkish government announced plans to reduce, and eventually abolish, opium production. $3 million of U.S. taxpayer money was contributed  to build up a special 750-man police narcotics unit, finance research for substitute crops, and improve the ‘managerial efficiency’ of the government regulatory agency, the Turkish Marketing Organization. Since Turkey’s poppy fields were the major source of raw materials for Marseille’s heroin laboratories, the impact of the Turkish government’s declaration was obvious as to any remnants of the Corsican network.
  • Southeast Asia was busily growing more than 70 percent of the world’s illicit opium, and the Chinese laboratories in Hong Kongstill under British nobility control, you understand – were producing some of the finest heroin in the world.
  • Beginning of fake ‘war on drugs’ –  while they’re covertly building the new drug distribution network.
  • May 10 – on orders from the CIA, which his family had tight connections to by blood and by marriage Billy Mellon-Hitchcock poured over $5,000,000 into unregistered “letter stocks” (the kind that aren’t traded publicly but tend to show dramatic gains on paper) associated with the Mary Carter Paint Company. It was the single largest chunk of money raised by Resorts International.
  • Paul Helliwell’s accounts (especially Resorts International) start getting used to launder money for the ‘busted’ – but actually covertly taken over – Fassler/Perez drug trafficking network (and the Brotherhood of Eternal Love)
  • Billy Mellon Hitchcock gets assigned to be the go-between for drug distribution groups such as the Brotherhood and their offshore accounts. He justified his actions to himself by considering that he was some kind of hero – a modern day “Robin Hood”.
  • The Brotherhood of Eternal Love begins trafficking hashish out of Kandahar, Afghanistan. Glenn Lynd and two other brotherhood members traveled to Afghanistan in search of a permanent source of supply for brotherhood hashish. An arrangement was made utilizing dual BND/CIA agent and Kabul Station chief, Paul Emerson Knight’s asset – the Tokhi brothers. Aman Tokhi worked as a janitor at the U.S. Embassy, although he referred to his position as ‘maintenance supervisor’. The Brotherhood had many ties to the CIA through Timothy Leary, Billy Mellon/Hitchock, Richard Helms/Paul Helliwell and the Castle Bank – and CIA agents Terrence Burke and Paul Emerson Knight, our CIA agents who later posed as BNDD employees to ‘control corruption” come in.They started out by hiding quantities of 15 to 20 pounds of the drug within the interiors of fiberglass surfboards which they manufactured – the idea of Brotherhood member Mike Hynson. Glenn Lynd and the two other Brotherhood members purchased 125 pounds of high-quality Afghanistan hashish from their suppliers in Afghanistan for $15 a pound and smuggled it back into California where they sold it for $900 a pound.
  • December – Mary Carter Paint completed construction of the Paradise Island Hotel and Villas.

1968 –

  • New Years –  Grand Opening of Resorts International’s Paradise Island, an island in the Bahamas formerly known as Hog Island. A star-studded cast was on hand for the grand opening of the gambling spa on New Year’s eve 1968, complete with tennis courts, swimming pools, albino beaches, and the clear blue waters of the Caribbean. Richard Nixon was the guest of honor at this gala event. James Crosby, president of Resorts International, contributed $100,000 to Nixon’s campaign. Crosby and Bebe Rebozo (Nixon’s best friend who illegally funneled millions to Nixon’s campaign) mingled with a bevy of movie stars, jet setters, gangsters, and GOP faithful. Billy Hitchcock was also there, idling among the heavies with drink in hand.
  • February, L. Ron Hubbard had formed a secret Panamanian Company called Operation & Transport Limited, through the Panamanian Counsel in Valencia, Spain. Strangely large sums of money started flowing through this shell corporation and then Hubbard began sailing his ships conveniently to ports (such as Greece and Morocco) where Miles and other intelligence agencies were conducting operations supposedly in order ‘to prevent Communism and uphold democracy.’
  • Under the banner of the IOR (the Vatican bank) the Vatican admitted that it controlled in a partnership with Ambrosiano eleven ghost companies based in Panama

 

  • A 1972 news article revealed that Panama was a hub for heroin smuggling and that the U.S. was ‘soft’ on busting any of it.

the_times_thu__aug_3__1972-dea-panama-drug-smuggling-heroin-protected

  • The CIA was busy lying to the world that it “did not support any form of smuggling after 1968” but recently declassified documents show that the CIA’s collaboration with (and often appropriation of) narcotics operations continued well into the seventies.
  • Lucien Conein ‘left’ the CIA in 1968 and returned to South Vietnam as a private businessman – ha ha. This just means that he went NOC – non official cover – as an agent.
  • CHAOS agent Tom Tripodi ‘left’ the CIA to shift over to the new BNDD unit paralleling these actions in a unit – the special operations unit, see 1971 – “approved by Howard Hunt”. Hunt would bring that program and its CIA front group composed of anti-Castro Cuban drug smugglers [Alpha 66] into the Nixon White House, with help from CIA staff Lucien Conein and Seymour Bolten.
  • Santo Trafficante, Jr., went to Saigon, Hong Kong, and Singapore to reorganize the international heroin trade for the slavemasters.
  • West German police requested information on Scientology from Interpol. Interpol asked the London Metropolitan Police (the Met) to develop one.
  • As part of a ‘research’ project of where/how to manufacture the LSD for the chosen delivery vehicle (chosen by British and American intelligence and Vatican banking interests), in the spring of 1968 William Mellon-Hitchcock and Brotherhood of Eternal Love member Nick Sand journeyed to the Bahamas where they stayed at the mansion of Sam Clapp, chairman of the local Fiduciary Trust company. Sam Clapp was a college buddie of Hitchock and they had been doing business for years. The two of them arranged for Nick Sand to open an account under a false name at Clapp’s bank.
  • Fiduciary Trust had ties to the IOS – Robert Vesco, which means it was yet another CIA cut-out bank. Bernie Cornfeld and Seymour Lazar were directors of both banks and they were also heavily invested in the Vesco/CIA network.The principals of the Fiduciary Trust Company were Samuel Clapp, William Sayad (a Miami attorney) and Edward Cowerr.
  • Shortly after the whole disruption of the Fassler network by the CIA-driven scientologists, toward the end of 1968 Hitchcock had been working closely with Johann F. Parravacini of the Parravacini Bank Ltd in Berne, Switzerland – another CIA and Vatican cut-out banker. Together they funded even further expansion of the Caribbean-California LSD-hashish ventures in the Caribbean with funds provided by the Fiduciary Trust Co. (IOS – Vesco’s CIA cut-out bank).
  • In conjunction with J. Vontobel and Co. of Zurich, Hitchcock founded a corporation called 4-Star Anstalt in Liechtenstein. This company, employing “investment funds” (that is, drug receipts) from Fiduciary Trust, bought up large tracts of land in the Grand Bahamas as well as large quantities of ergotamine tartrate, the basic chemical used in the production of LSD (now being handled by Ron Stark and Nick Sand).
  • May – Mary Carter Paint sold its paint division to Delafield Industries for just over $10 million. As part of the purchase price, Delafield gained the right to the Mary Carter name.
  • June 24 – what had been the Mary Carter Paint Company became Resorts International, Inc., a corporation engaged in developing property, as well as owning and operating casinos and resorts.
  • The Helliwell off-shore banking complex, especially Resorts International, was used in subversion of the United States government itself. Illegally funneling drug-trafficking money into the election campaigns of puppets and patsies they wanted in office – like President Nixon, he ‘strong stance against drugs’ President.
  • Resorts International is a front for laundering/supporting the trafficking of cocaine and marijuana from the Caribbean and South America, LSD and hashish produced in factories in the Bahamas, Costa Rica, etc., with venture capital provided through IOSInvestors Overseas Services – owned by Robert Vesco. The IOS was an international “mutual fund” that somehow managed to accumulate an excess of $2 billion in investment capital on behalf of “unnamed subscribers.” This is that CIA banking scheme I described earlier. Robert Vesco, Norman Leblanc, Bernie Cornfeld and and Seymour (“The Head”) Lazare, were directors of the Swiss-based IOS (Investors Overseas Services) a fast-money laundry for whoever the CIA deemed allowed. Anywhere from organized crime, corrupt Third World dictators, wealthy expatriates, and freelance swindlers.
  • After having invested in Mary Carter Paint, Clapp and Sayad entered consent decrees with the SEC for trading in unregistered shares of Mary Carter Paint stock. Subsequently, on March 1, 1971, Cowerr, also a principal in the Investors Overseas Service (I.O.S.), was barred by the SEC from engaging in the business of a broker-dealer for actions unrelated to Mary Carter Paint Company stock.
  • July – Clapp was under investigation by the SEC and had been barred by July 1968 as per the SEC News and Digest. When Hitchcock was called to testify before the SEC regarding Sam Clapp, Robert Vesco and Fiduciary Trust he quickly shifted his money (which meant all the Brotherhood’s drug profits) into a series of new accounts (no names, just numbers) in the Paravacini Bank in Bern – a total of 67 million dollars funneled there. Due to his role in Mary Carter, Billy Hitchcock was suspended as a broker by the SEC for a whole ten days.
  • Congress amended the 1965 law narcotics law to set penalties for the illegal possession of stimulant, depressant or hallucinogenic drugs (PL 90-639) – which is when all those drugs had to go black market hugely increasing the profit margin for LSD etc.
  • President Johnson combined the Bureau of Narcotics in the Department of the Treasury with the Bureau of Drug Abuse Control from the Department of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW), creating a Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs in the Department of Justicethe BNDD. The head of the HEW at this time was John William Gardner, who had been previously intimately involved with the WWII Briish Tavistock psychological assessment operation. He’s listed on p. 162 of the OSS Personnel Database.
  • Warren Hudson and (scientologist Guardian Office and Sea Organization member) Jerry McDonald are working with the CIA to mess with Mafia-man Lawrence Fassler (Perez marijuana network)  – this is exactly when the CIA began moving in on the drug trade in this part of the world. And yes, knowingly allowing and even tremendously increasing the flow into America. The CIA then re-directed control of the flow of drugs, at the U.S. end, over to the Brotherhood of Eternal Love, but later decided to bring in agent Ron Stark in 1969 to run the Brotherhood. (also see 1973 CIA op through the DEA called DEACON3)

1969 –

  • Robert Vesco got caught doing some funny money transactions, and a case was brought in 1969. At which time Robert Vesco hied off to Costa Rica, keeping one step ahead of the investigations and protecting his CIA connections (behind the IOS) in the process.
  • CIA agent Ronald Stark running a Gladio op in France. He took over the French dissidents magazine called Frendz
  • Early – one of Hitchcock’s bag men ran afoul of Customs when re-entering the United States with $100,000 in cash. Customs alerted the IRS who began sniffing around Hitchcock, plus he also had the SEC investigations going on already. It was at this point that Hitchock consulted with his handlers and they decided to replace his role with Ronald Stark. Stark was an Operation Gladio operative. Much like Ron Hubbard, he had a knack for popping up wherever trouble was brewing – the streets of Paris during the Sorbonne uprising in May of 1968, London clubs and bars that were hangouts for “dissidents, and in Milan during the ‘hot autumn’ of 1969, when massive student demonstrations and labor strikes nearly paralyzed Italy. As part of covert Gladio operations, Stark had been working with US intelligence agencies for at least 9 years by the time he hooked up with the Brotherhood.
  • The reason for the somewhat more open posting of CIA agents as BNDD agents had to do with a ‘contract’ with the CIA to ‘ferret out corruption in the Ingersoll-ran bureaucracy’. However, this was simply the first step in the CIA’s continued infiltration and subordination of the new federal drug law enforcement agency – which had begun under Ingersoll. Making sure it stayed on track with the ‘big 3’ (the slavemasters) plan like it’s predecessor (the FNB) had been doing.
  • The Met finally finishes its ‘profile’ on scientology and then had Interpol circulate it worldwide. The Met report said that: “the organization caters to the inadequate. The promise of enhanced mental awareness appears to appeal to those already affected by mental instability, unhappiness and uncertainty.” The three biggest intelligence agencies all decide to do the same PR angle about scientology, deliberately trying to distance Hubbard and is covert intelligence activities from them. See Coordinated PR Positioning between MI6 and the CIA in this recent post of mine. This unified description that the ‘Big 3’ came out with there in 1969 was actually Hubbard’s new NOC cover.
  • February –  Embassy London to Secretary of State Washington DC: “the British, New Zealand and Australian Consular also now shared the belief that the mentally disturbed were being exploited by L. Ron Hubbard.
  • March 24 – CIA direct involvement with the BNDD (Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs) began in 1969 shortly after its creation. The arrangement becoming more formalized in early 1971. Many foreign policemen and intelligence officers were painfully aware of the fact that BNDD personnel were mainly CIA agents working under BNDD cover to support the continuation of the drug-trafficking by smugglers in their good graces. Furthermore, the BNDD was not allowed to pursue corrupt foreign drug-running officials who cooperated with the CIA. A good example of this was Santos Trafficante.
  • Terrence Burke signs up with the BNDD. Officially hired december 1970. Recruited by Italy, Customs Agent Fred Cornetta. Then the agent in charge at Dulles airport, Cornetta persuaded Burke to join the BNDD.
  • Stark meets Billy Hitchcock in his New York apartment.
  • Billy Hitchcock sends Ronald Hadley Stark to replace him in running the Brotherhood. A few weeks later he and an ‘assistant’ travelled to Griggs ranch in Idylwild. Stark kicked off the meeting by showing them a kilogram of liquid LSD — for US readers, that’s 2.2 pounds of acid. This was the LSD that would be produced and labeled “Orange Sunshine”,  but, there are a number of reports that this LSD was inferior and actually caused a number of bad side effects, such as stimulant reactions and symptoms quite closely resembling those of strychnine poisoning. Michael Hollinshead said there was something wrong with the ‘trips’ as well.
  • John Griggs, the unofficial leader of the Brotherhood of Eternal Love smugglers, died in the wee hours of August 4, 1969.
  • CIA agent Paul Knight opened a BNDD office in Kabul with two cover stories. The ‘inside’ one was that the office was opened as a cover for CIA operations directed against the Soviet Union.” The ‘outer’ one was this his purpose was to “track the hashish traffic and investigate the movement of heroin from, to, and through Afghanistan, Iran, and Turkey.
  • CIA agent Terrence Burke starts working for Paul Knight over in Kabul.
  • CIA agent Ron Stark takes over the helm of the Brotherhood of Eternal Love, establishing secure shipments and managing every aspect of their finances, plugging them into the Gladio ‘big 3’ drug smuggling underground.  Massive marijuana imports from the Middle East (hashish), shadow CIA and MI6 bank accounts in the Cayman Islands, everything the ‘big 3’ wanted the brotherhood to be used for – which was to covertly finance their black operations, and perhaps more importantly, further the ‘strategy of tension’ agenda towards America’s youth.  – nearly 24 tons of hashish was smuggled into the United States from Afghanistan, Lebanon, and India by the Brotherhood of Eternal Love. Now way behind hiding it in surf-boards, Brotherhood smugglers flew to Europe; purchased Volkswagen buses, Land Rovers and other vehicles; drove them overland to Kandahar, Afghanistan and then shipped them home to California from Karachi, Pakistan. Profits are being laundered through the CIA Helliwell offshore banking complex.
  • Fall – Ron Stark hooks up with MI6 asset Howard Marks, who’s doing dope business with Alan Marcuson and Charles Radcliffe of that Frendz magazine he took over. Stark hooked up with him some time after he had met with the Brotherhood in Idylwild, then had traveled to Cambridge where he met up with British LSD would-be distributors at his rooms at the Oxford and Cambridge Club on Pall Mall.
  • Fall – Query from US. Consul Casablanca to Ambassador Walter Annenberg in London seeking information about scientology and Hubbard. Annenberg said: “We believe the enclosed clipping from the Sunday Times of October 5, 1969 should give the consul general enough flavor and background on the affairs of Mr. Hubbard to guide its contacts with him.” How tongue-in-cheek of him.

1970 –

  • July 4 – The Meyer Lansky Southeast-Asian produced heroin was ready to now be tested on American GI guinea pics, but Lansky fled to Israel (business-related charges against him) turning things over to Trafficante. Trafficante held at twelve-day meeting with representatives of several Mafia families at the Hotel Sole in Palermo, Sicily on July 4, after which he began his war against the remnants of the Corsican network that had emigrated some of their activities to South America.
  • Trafficante targets Auguste Ricord in Paraguay, who had finagled his own Hong Kong connection, Ng Sik-ho aka “Limpy Ho,” a major ‘Nationalist’ Chinese heroin smuggler well-connected to the Taiwan regime. Heroin shipments began going to Paraguay via, among other transit points, Chile. The ‘big 3’ stepped in and finally put a stop to this ‘unapproved’ smuggling and extradited Ricord to the U.S. in 1972.
  • President Nixon and French President Pompidou worked together to wipe out the ties between refineries in Marseille and their distribution points belonging to the Corsican mafia. This “adjustment” in distribution of drugs was referred to by Henrik Kruger as an unnoticed “political coup.”
  • October 14 – The boys in the Justice Department pushed Congress to clear Nixon’s Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970. It was: to provide expanded programs of rehabilitation, treatment and drug abuse education, to unify and revise Federal narcotics laws, to revise the entire penalty structure for violations of those laws and to provide new tools for enforcement. President Nixon signed the bill (PL 91-513) on Oct. 27.
  • The head of BNDD, Mr. Ingersoll was complaining to Richard Helms (in December of 1970) that: “the old Federal Bureau of Narcotics had been heavily infiltrated by dishonest and corrupt elements who were believed to have ties with the narcotics smuggling industry.”
  • December – Terrence Burke ‘officially’ hired by BNDD. Recruited by Fuller into Operation Twofold.

 

1971 –

  • CIA still smuggling opium – Del Rosario was a CIA operative who was an operations assistant for Continental Air Service, which flew for the CIA in Laos. The company’s transport planes shipped large quantities of rice. He says: “However, when the freight invoice was marked ‘Diverse,’ I knew it was opium. As a rule an office telephone with a special number would ring and a voice would say ‘The customer here’‑-that was the code designation for the CIA agents who had hired us. ‘Keep an eye on the planes from Ban Houai Sai. We’re sending some goods and someone’s going to take care of it. Nobody’s allowed to touch anything, and nothing can be unloaded,’ was a typical message. These shipments were always top priority. Sometimes the opium was unloaded in Vientiane and stored in Air America depots. At other times it went on to Bangkok or Saigon.
  • February – This is when the formalization (formal request and answer) of CIA involvement with the BNDD was approved by CIA head (DCI) Richard Helms on 12 February 1971. It was then named Operation TWOFOLD. There are several documents in the Family Jewels PDF that talk about all the help that the CIA was giving the BNDD for creating false backgrounds, including social security numbers, birth certificates, credit cards, and…passports.
  • Operation Two-Fold  – while the overt aspect specialized in media blitzing about the so-called war on drugs, the covert aspect included kidnapping and assassinating traffickers who were infringing on their market or not playing ball in some way. BNDD Director John E. Ingersoll himself confirmed the existence of this covert facet of Twofold. Its purpose, he said, was to put people in deep cover in the U.S. to develop intelligence on drug trafficking, particularly from South America. Ingersoll said he got approval from Attorney General John Mitchell and then passed the operation on to John Bartels, the first administrator of the DEA.”
  • Title II: Control and Enforcement authorized the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs in fiscal 1971 to add at least 300 agents to its existing enforcement staff, and authorized an annual appropriation of $6 million for that purpose, beginning in fiscal 1971.
  • April – The truth of French and American cooperation (as LeMouel referred to it so benignly in the January 1976 article against scientology) in enabling massive amounts of drugs to flow into the U.S. using the Corsican Network, had been first leaked during the arrest and trial of Mr. Delouette.
  • In April of 1971, the arrest of Delouette and his guilty plea in connection with the seizure of 96 pounds of heroin in New Jersey last April was accompanied by the revelation that the S.D.E.C.E.—the French counterpart to the C.I.A.—was believed involved with the heroin trafficking. The indictment of Col. Paul Fournier*, a high S.D.E.C.E.** official, and his unwillingness to come to the United States for trial on narcotics charges lends credence to the possibility of high -level involvement. Further, a French conhas refused to testify before the Federal grand jury in Newark on the Doulette Fournier affair. Colonel Paul Fournier’s real name was Paul Ferrer.
  • Robert Vesco, although hiding out in Costa Rica, was still laundering money for the CIA, but he got caught. Approx $224 million was routed from the IOS to Robert Vesco (who was about to continue its laundering into various CIA black book operations) but he got caught – someone managed to see the money moving in the SEC prompting an investigation. Note the importance of this, because right after this (see 1972) is when a number of misdirection-style drug busts would be staged blaming people like Timothy Leary, the Brotherhood of Eternal Love etc, as just being ‘some hippies’ – not the major funnel of black bag money for Operation Gladio and the CIA as they actually were.
  • April – Special operations unit, or special intelligence unit, the “CIA” of the new BNDD – approved. Active-duty CIA officers were assigned to the new SIO as desk officers for Europe and the Middle East, the Far East, and Latin America. Tripodi was assigned as chief of operations.
  • April – CIA officers Adrian Swain and Tom Tripodi, now in BNDD go to Saigon, where CIA Station Chief Shackley briefed them and Swain obtained maps of the drug-smuggling routes in Southeast Asia. Swain and Tripodi both noted that the CIA was protecting people that “were involved in narcotics trafficking and the CIA did not want to identify them.”
  • May –  Henry Kissinger presented a $120 million drug control proposal, of which $50 million was earmarked for special operations. These operations would rely on: “longer range, deep penetration, clandestine assets, who remain undercover, do not appear during the course of any trial and are recruited and directed by the Special Operations agents on a covert basis.
  • Tripodi’s Medusa plan proposed that SIO agents hire foreigners to blow up drug planes while they were refueling at remote airstrips. As part of 1975 investigations – one DEA inspector described Medusa as follows: “Topics considered as options included psychological terror tactics, substitution of placebos to discredit traffickers, use of incendiaries to destroy conversion laboratories, and disinformation to cause internal warfare between drug trafficking organizations; other methods under consideration involved blackmail, use of psychopharmacological techniques, bribery and even terminal sanctions.” You see how similar that is to what CIA agent Miles Copeland, L. Ron Hubbard’s handler described as ‘political action’ – it included anything from lobbying to assassination, from propaganda and financial “aid” to dissuasion which was quite a euphemism for what was essentially terrorizing someone. It was described by Miles as: any act designed to frighten an enemy away from some particular activity, or to provoke him into irrational behaviour suiting our strategic purposes
  • CIA agent Terrence Burke, already in place in Kabul as a BNDD agent begins beating his chest around his first publicized staged ‘drug bust’ involving the Brotherhood of Eternal Love. Terrence Burke had been serving as an undercover agent alongside Interpol to break up a group of dealers running hash from India to the United States (the Brotherhood of Eternal Love – see 1972). Burke had formed a working partnership with the Interpol representative and adviser, a formidable West German prepared to use unorthodox methods and disguises to ensnare dealers. Burke pretends that his ‘researches’ confirmed the Tokhi brothers as major hash dealers with an almost exclusively American clientele, and linked with the information from the United States.
  • Ronald Stark gets tipped by the CIA and shuts down his French LSD operation.
  • William Colby (Operation Phoenix) and Lucien Conein get recalled to Washington. The ‘Big 3″ drug trafficking money lines needed more hands-on protection. A protection that would begin operating from within the U.S. Government – under the auspices of the BNDD, no less. Colby was made the Deputy Director of Operations, the man in charge of the CIA’s covert operations.
  • CIA agent Seymour Bolten placed as head of new drug unit in its operations division his title was: Special Assistant to the Director for the Coordination of Narcotics. This was a powerful position, wherein Bolten had a free hand directing CIA division and station chiefs in drug control operations – to make sure their drug-trafficking operations were not compromised or interrupted.
  • Seymour Bolten “screwed” the BNDD by taking dozens of CIA officers and slipping them into the BNDD. Several went to Lucien Conein. CIA Executive Director William Colby supported Bolten’s plan to preempt the BNDD and use its agents and informants for unilateral CIA purposes. The White House also supported the plan for political purposes related to Watergate. Top BNDD officials who resisted were expunged; those who cooperated were rewarded.
  • Summer – Ted Shackley appointed head of the CIA’s Western Hemisphere Division.
  • July – Howard Hunt recommended Lucien Conein and the White House hired him into the BNDD as an ‘expert “consultant” in the areas of narcotics intelligence’ on Corsican drug traffickers in Southeast Asia. Conein was immediately assigned as a ‘consultant’ to the SIO’s Far East Asia desk. Conein works with Tripodi and Shackley. At this time there were approximately three or four former CIA people on the staff.
  • An internal unit within the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs served as the “point of contact” between the BNDD and
    the CIA. This unit, the (Office of Strategic Intelligence) the SIO, used “CIA-style disinformation program designed to destabilize drug trafficking groups by having articles printed about their members in foreign newspapers“. 36 (example: see Hippie Mafia, Rolling Stone, 1972)
  • The CIA ‘excuse’ – Although the CIA supplied people and resources to combat drugs (when it did not interfere with their clandestine operations abroad), its growing role in anti-narcotics efforts led to questionable practices such as purposely allowing drugs into the U.S (as did the BNDD) to gather information and to conduct “illegal domestic spy operations,” especially after June 1971.36
  • Bolten sets up a “parallel mechanism” based on a computerized register of international drug traffickers and a CIA-staffed communications crew that intercepted calls from drug traffickers inside the U.S. to their accomplices around the world. This International Narcotics Information Network (INIS) was modeled on a computerized management information system Shackley had used to terrorize the underground resistance in South Vietnam [Operation Phoenix]. CIA electronic surveillance is inadmissible in court, the CIA was able to protect its controlled deliveries into the U.S. merely by monitoring them. Numerous investigations had to be terminated as a result. Likewise, dozens of prosecutions were dismissed on national security grounds due to the participation of CIA assets operating around the world.
  • October – Robert Vesco and banker Parravicini worked to arrange another money-laundering network, this one to help the British with propping their man Lynden Pindling up in the Bahamas to facilitate (and keep hidden) all that drug smuggling money they all were profiting by. Butlers Bank Trust Company founded Bahamas Commonwealth Bank on the instructions of the IOS (Vesco). It was to be the lead IOS financial institution and the international banking arm of ABC. It was capitalized at $4 million from Overseas Development Bank (Geneva) the new BCB stock was contributed to International Bancorp which gave shares in return and the result was Vesco’s usual hidden chain of command. BCB controlled by IBL (IOS) controlled by ICC controlled by RLV. Butlers Bank won BCB the right to trade international currencies,vital to Norman Leblanc for moving money around. Bank officials, per a local paper, conceded that “loans show a definite trend toward people closely allied with the ruling Progressive Liberal Party of Lynden Pindling.” The Bahamian Commission of Inquiry said in 1984 that between 1977 and 1983 Pindling received an unexplained $3.5 million more than he was paid in salary.
  • Ron Stark opens a new production center in Brussels behind a front of a biomedical research firm. He communicated on a regular basis with officials at the American embassy in London and even received their assistance while setting up the Belgian lab. By the time he was done, he had made over twenty kilos of LSD – the largest amount from any single underground source and most of it was sold in the United States.
  • – Fall As part of Gladio operations Stark went over to Milan to ‘mingle’ at the student demonstrations and labor strikes. Just a little later, in the 1970’s he was also hooked up with the Sicilian Mafiosi and various other intelligence agents useful to his Gladio ops. He had quite the ‘posh’ lifestyle he maintained in Italy – at the same time as running the Brotherhood’s finances.
  • November – Terrence Burke staged drug bust and surveillance of of CIA asset the Tokhi brothers, media circus in California.

1972 –

  • January – French Narcotics ‘investigation’ head Francois LeMouel worked directly with CIA officer Paul Knight, who operated under cover of being a FBN/BNDD* agent, beginning in January of 1972 when Knight was assigned to Paris. Francois le Mouel, together with Marcel Morin, had just been put in charge as the new heads of the French narcotics law enforcement effort.
  • Terrence Burke takes over CIA front of the BNDD Kabul office. “arrests” Timothy Leary.
  • July 25 – CIA/BNDD Planted Press – NY Times article, Francois le Mouel plays dumb about why all the increased drug trafficking, tries to add the U.S. to the blame for it. “The French, while still sensitive to American criticism that they are not doing enough to intercept the traffic, offer this question: “If we can find the way to pick up so many smugglers and caches here,” they ask American officers, “why are you getting so little at your end? 38  But he also BLAMES the people for why the increased drugs! “Society’s tolerance of drugs, he feels, has vastly broadened the pool of recruits eager to replace those arrested. “Why, just a few years ago,” Mr. Knight said, “no self-respecting heist man or white-slaver would have touched the dope trade. Now they’re all moving in.””
  • August 5 – First ‘raid’ on the Brotherhood of Eternal Love. The largest narcotics raid that had ever taken place in California. Police from Laguna Beach to Oregon to Maui to Kabul, Afghanistan, raided dozens of houses and 53 members of Brotherhood were arrested, but not all of them.
  • September – DCI Richard Helms and BNDD Director John Ingersoll create the Bureau of Narcotics Covert Intelligence Network (BUNCIN) mirroring Tom Tripodi’s Medusa Plan and included “provocations, inducement to desertion, creating confusion and apprehension” that were directed at specific drug traffickers who were a problem for their other ‘allowed’ drug traffickers. (see 1975 for Medusa description; also see Miles Copeland ‘political action’ 1950) Some BUNCIN intelligence activities were directed against “senior foreign government officials” and were “blamed on other government agencies or even on the intelligence services of other nations.” Other BUNCIN activities were directed against American civic and political groups. Operation Chaos was continuing only now it was also within the BNDD.
  • Lucien Conein at the SIO managed BUNCIN illegal activities. According to Conein’s administrative deputy, Rich Kobakoff, “BUNCIN was an experiment in how to finesse the law. The end product was intelligence, not seizures or arrests.” Conein selected CIA agents Robert Medell and William Logay to manage BUNCIN. Medell, previously a Operation Twofold agent, was BUNCIN’s “covert” agent and recruited its principal agents. All of his assets had previously worked for the CIA, and all believed they were working for it again.
  • The CIA supplied BUNCIN’s assets with forged IDs that enabled them to work for foreign governments, including Panama, Venezuela and Costa Rica. Paychecks came from BNDD funds, but the program was reimbursed by the CIA through the Bureau of Mines. The program was authorized by the “appropriate” Congressional committee.Some agents were assigned to law enforcement groups as a cover. Under BUNCIN cover, CIA anti-Castro assets reportedly kidnapped and assassinated people in Colombia and Mexico. BUNCIN’s White House sponsors also sent CIA anti-Castro Cuban assets to gather dirt on Democratic politicians in Key West.
  • At their ‘introductory’ meeting in Mexico City, Ted Shackley told Latin American division chief Strickler to hand over all BNDD files, informant lists, and cable traffic.
  • December 7 – After the first raid on the brotherhood, CIA/BNDD planted press begins appearing trashing the now ‘out-of-favor” Brotherhood, who was dubbed “the hippie mafia” in a Rolling Stone article.
  • CIA/BNDD planted press – Official DEA history actually still lists that Timothy Leary is who started the Brotherhood of Eternal Love and portrays him as just some lone druggie nut. “Timothy Leary (center) was brought to justice by DEA Special Agents Don Strange (right) and Howard Safir (left). Leary, a psychology instructor, was fired from his post at Harvard University as a result of his experimentation with LSD. In 1969, he founded a clandestine drug-trafficking ring, known as the Brotherhood of Eternal Love, that became the largest supplier of hashish and LSD in the United States.” 33 That’s a complete misdirection and manipulation of truth (by leaving out the most important fact) by the DEA.

 

1973 –

The staged drug busts of 1972 were used as a ‘reason’ to create the even more controlled DEA.

  • Spring and summer – the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate heard months of testimony on Richard Nixon’s Reorganization Plan Number 2 (33)  which proposed the creation of a single federal agency to consolidate and coordinate the government’s drug control activities.
  • July – DEA created. Nixon called “an all-out global war on the drug menace”.
  • August 22 – CIA/BNDD (now DEA) planted press continues – Mary Jo Worth of the Village Voice The Acid Profiteers  tries to portray Billy Hitchcock as just some guy on an adventure with the Brotherhood of Eternal Love –  “In a rare, candid conversation……Hitchcock said he thought of himself as mired in a Robin Hood syndrome. He said he got involved with The Brotherhood of Eternal Love because kicking the establishment in the teeth was exciting. Of course, William Mellon Hitchcock is the establishment.” instead of the hard cold truth was that he was involved in it for Operation Gladio/CIA purposes.
  • Vernon J. Calhoun, LEAA and DEA (Chief of Nevada Division of Investigation and Narcotics) publishes a lip-service report on Mexican drug smuggling using Nevada Airports, per request from newly elected Governor Callahan and LEAA director Barrett. Calhoun was one of the people called to block the DEA from releasing FOIA documents to the Church of Scientology in 1976.
  • By 1972, the quantity of brown heroin from Mexico available in the United States had risen 40 percent higher than the quantity of white heroin from Europe. See Mexican Heroin Connection Senate Committee 1978 – Internet Archive  The CIA/Vatican etc, weren’t getting their proper cut so the Perez network had to go, to be replaced with Quintero and Gallardo at its head. That was the point of Conein operation Deacon 3, see 1973 and 1974.
  • Bahamian Puppet Prime Minister Sir Lynden Pindling in 1973 with Prince Charles. PBS SHOW NARRATOR: From time to time, Prime Minister Linden Pindling would stage a drug bust. According to U.S. law enforcement sources, the Bahamian police would seize a load and photos would be taken. Afterwards the money and drugs would be handed back to Lehder. Although Pindling was investigated by a Bahamian commission, he was never convicted. CARLOS TORO: This was a facade kind of thing. You know, we and Mr. Pindling, I discussed it with him. At times he will say to me, “Carlos, we have to make an arrest.” I mean, we had the Americans checking on us. And we’re getting helicopters from them, and we’re getting financial aid, and we got a partnership here. We’ve got to show that we’re doing the job. So he was corrupt.
  • October – BNDD Director John E. Ingersoll specifically stated that he passed Operation Two-Fold – including its covert aspects of kidnapping and assassinating traffickers – on to John Bartels, the first administrator of the DEA.”
  • CIA Agent and former Laos Station Chief Terrence Burke was “parked at DEA by Theodore Shackley to baby-sit Shackley’s CIA drug business.” according to Gene Wheaton, retired military Criminal Investigations Division. Terrence was made Deputy Director in the DEA.
  • BNDD agent Strickler is on record that the BNDD was forced to allow drug shipments into the U.S. without telling the “real” BNDD agents. Yes, “individual stations allowed this,” SIO Director John Warner confirmed. Strickler tried to clean things up, he knew exactly which CIA people were guilty of sabotaging cases in Latin America and he wanted to get them indicted. Seymour Boulten insisted that he be reassigned – somewhere he could do nothing to interfere with their nefarious goings-on.
  • Gottlieb orders the destruction of all MKULTRA records.
  • L. Ron Hubbard, after several times of having public in different countries call him and his Sea Org members “CIA” orders the Guardian Office to do Operation Snow White to obtain files on what is being “said” about him and Scientology. Most Guardian Office personnel thought this was about the “Suppressives” in the government, but it was really about Hubbard and his handlers looking for damaging records that might link him to what he was really doing.
  • Scientology agents, the Director of Research for the NCLE, under Operation Show White, go to West Germany and surreptitiously gained a copy of the Met report.
  • October – Bartels takes Chief of DEA position. Bartels was completely suborned by Seymour Bolten and the CIA. He had his Assistant Administrator for Intelligence for the DEA, George M. Belk propose a special operations group in intelligence which Bartels immediately approved. This was how they moved Lucein Conein and the CIA’s ‘special’ unit in the BNDD on over into its NEW form in the DEA.
  • Operation CHAOS CIA agent Richard Ober reassigned to the National Security Council in order to hide him. Sunday, January 26 – Arizona Republic article Colby and Ober under investigationWilliam E. Colby, director of the Central Intelligence Agency, returns for a second round of questioning Monday when the Rockefeller commission resumes its investigation of the agency’s domestic surveillance activities. A spokesman for the commission said Colby would be followed by CIA official Richard Ober, who once headed a counterintelligence unit which Colby has acknowledged kept files on 10,000 American citizens.[That’s Operation CHAOS] The House subcommittee on intelligence has announced it will hold public hearings on CIA domestic surveillance beginning next week with Colby as the first witness. Ober was transferred to the National Security Council in the fall of 1973, shortly after Colby became aware of what he has called instances “in which the agency may have been involved in…”
  • December – Lucian Conein rolls on over from the BNDD and becomes a permanent employee of the new DEA. In the DEA’s Office of Intelligence there were 332 employees, Conein has a staff of 19 people 14 of which are “former” CIA. Conein’s explanation for this was that “DEA does not have a training capability in the area of intelligence gathering techniques, therefore it was advantageous and expedient to recruit trained personnel from CIA.” (Conein memorandum of testimony 1/28/75, Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations). This is verifiable also in news articles like the Arizona Republic from Phoenix, Arizona. (see January 26, 1975)
  • DEASOG ‘officially’ formed, with Lucien Conein as Chief (see 1973) of Intelligence Group/Operations (IGO). Conein then administered the DEA Special Operations Group (DEASOG), SFIP and the National Intelligence Officers (NIO) programs. Conein managed operations through a separate chain of command reaching right to William Colby, who had risen to the rank of CIA Director concurrent with the formation of the DEA. Conein created DEASOG specifically to do Operation Phoenix program-style jobs overseas: the kind where a paramilitary officer breaks into a trafficker’s house, takes his drugs, and slits his throat. If they couldn’t assassinate the target, they would bomb his labs or use psychological warfare to make him look like he was a DEA informant, so his own people would kill him.
  • Conein recruits CIA officers for DEASOG.
  • Elias P. Chavez – paramilitary and drug control experience in Laos. William Colby’s personnel assistant Jack Mathews had been Chavez’s case officer at the Long Thien base, where General Vang Pao ran his secret drug-smuggling army under Ted Shackley’s auspices from 1966-1968.
    Nicholas Zapata – paramilitary and drug control experience in Laos.
    Wesley Dyckman – Chinese linguist with service in Vietnam, was assigned to San Francisco.
    Louis J. Davis – a veteran of Vietnam and Laos, was assigned to the Chicago Regional Intelligence Unit.
    Christopher Thompson – from the CIA’s Phoenix Program in Vietnam went to San Antonio.
    Hugh E. Murray – veteran of Pakse and Bolivia (where he participated in the capture of Che Guevara), was sent to Tucson.
    Thomas D. McPhaul – worked with Conein in Vietnam, and was sent to Dallas.
    Thomas L. Briggs – veteran of Laos and a friend of Shackley’s, went to Mexico.
    Vernon J. Goertz – a Shackley friend who had participated in the Allende coup, went to Venezuela. worked for Shackley’s man Clines in Caracas
    David A. Scherman – a Conein friend and former manager of the CIA’s interrogation center in Da Nang, was sent to sunny San Diego.
    Gary Mattocks – ran CIA counter-terror teams in Vietnam’s Delta
    Robert Simon – interrogator
    Terry Baldwin
    Barry Carew – A veteran CIA officer who spoke Spanish, Carew had served as a special police adviser in Saigon before joining the BNDD. Carew was assigned as Conein’s Latin American desk officer and managed Chavez and Zapata (aka “the Mexican Assassin”) in Mexico.

  • Ted Shackley helps out setting up DEASOG. He brought in “his” people, including Tom Clines, whom Shackley placed in charge of the CIA’s Caribbean operations.
  • Lucien Conein had originally planned to have 50 NIOs operating worldwide by 1977.
  • DEASOG operations DEACON 1 2 and 3 already operating PRIOR to ‘official’ posting of Conein in March of 1974, proof is that DEACON 3 finance records show February 1974.
  • DEACON 1 – DEASOG first operation. As cover, Conein’s 11th addition to his DEASOG roster – Gary Mattocks – set up a front company designed to improve relations between Cuban and American businessmen. Meanwhile, through the CIA, he recruited members of the Artime organization including Watergate burglars Rolando Martinez and Bernard Barker, as well as Che Guevara’s murderer, Felix Rodriguez.
  • Deacon 1 – Mitch Werbell. Werbell was a ‘deniable’ asset that Conein used for so-called parallel operations. Robert Vesco and Trafficante are in Costa Rica as guests of President Figueres. Figueres son purchased weapons from Werbell and used them to arm a death squad he formed with Conein’s DEACON 1 asset Carlos Rumbault, a notorious anti-Castro Cuban terrorist and fugitive drug smuggler.
  • Deacon 1 – Agent Tabraue – In what amounted to an endless succession of controlled deliveries, Tabraue was financing loads of cocaine and using DEACON 1’s Cuban assets to smuggle them into the U.S.

1974 –

  • Denial and lieing about CIA ops and Operation Gladio – The President of Italy, Francesco Cossiga “unequivocally” denied it.
  • February – DEACON 3 targeted the Aviles-Perez organization in Mexico, Funds were allotted in February 1974. A White House Task Force under Howard Hunt had started the DEACON 3 case. The Task force provided photographs of the Aviles Perez compound in Mexico, from whence truckloads of marijuana were shipped to the U.S. – to the Brotherhood.This forms a direct connection between Hubbard, Scientology, and the CIA drug-trafficking with Fassler/Brotherhood of Eternal Love. (see 1968) Conein had assigned his DEASOG agents Eli Chavez, Nick Zapata and Barry Carew to DEACON 3. Chavez and Zapata traveled to Mexico City as representatives of the North American Alarm and Fire Systems Company. In Mazatlán, they met with CIA agent Carew, who stayed at a fancy hotel and played tennis every day, while Chavez and Zapata, whom Conein referred to as “pepper-bellies,” fumed in a flea-bag motel. An informant arranged for Chavez, posing as a buyer, to meet Perez. A deal was struck, but DEA chief John Bartels made the mistake of instructing Chavez to brief the DEA’s regional director in Mexico City before making “the buy.”
  • DEACON 3 – Joan Banister at meeting of DEACON 3 agents presented their operational plan. But when the subject of “neutralizing” [as in assassination] Perez came up, analyst Joan Banister took this to mean assassination. The whole point of Deacon 3 was actually that Perez was simply being ‘replaced’ with CIA asset Quintero who them formed the Sinoloa Cartel.
  • At a meeting with the CIA’s deputy Director of Operations in 1974 the State Department, then trained “in CIA ‘tradecraft’ skills, such as how to use agents to insulate the US government from its dabbling in drug trafficking.” – SHELL GAME: THE U.S. – AFGHAN OPIUM RELATIONSHIP, by Sean Edward Duffy, 2011
  • In order to again re-route the massive drug network coming from the now newly controlled Sinoloa Cartel (by CIA Asset Quintero, who is alleged to have assassinated Perez) and to take the heat of the money launderers such as Robert Vesco and Billy Hitchcock-Mellon, the BNDD, primarily using Terrence Burke and Paul Knight, staged a ‘takedown’ of the Brotherhood in June of 1973 – pinning it all onto also CIA asset Timothy Leary. This ‘big bust’ was used to helped push through the formation of the DEA, where the CIA, yet again (on orders from the Big 3) went after establishing new and more extensive controls on the former Perez network – that’s DEACON 3.
  • February – DEA Agent Anthony Triponi, a former Green Beret and member of Operation Twofold, was admitted to St. Luke’s Hospital in New York “suffering from hypertension.” DEA inspectors found Triponi in the psychiatric ward, distraught because he had broken his “cover” and now his “special code” would have to be changed. Thinking he was insane, the DEA inspectors called former chief inspector Patrick Fuller in California, just to be sure. As it turned out, everything Triponi had said about Twofold was true! The incredulous DEA inspectors called the CIA and were stunned when they were told: “If you release the story, we will destroy you.” Notes from leaked Attorney General Report 40 by scientology: Page 11: George Brosan, Acting Chief Inspector from September 1973 until relieved on December 20, 1974 described seventeen [CIA]agents within DEA clandestinely on the rolls of Inspection…this system was established under former attorney general Mitchell in cooperation with BNDD Director Ingersoll and former Chief Inspector Fuller. Brosan states that after one operative suffered a nervous breakdown, he directed Fuller, who continued to oversee the program after his reassignment in Feb 1974 as a Regional Inspector, to disband the operation. Brosan did not follow up to determine if that was accomplished…when Brosan was relieved on December 20, 1974 he turned over several thousand dollars in project funds to his Replacement, Phillip Smith.” They simply moved it on under the new DEASOG.
  • March – DEASOG ‘officially’ formed, with Lucien Conein as Chief (see 1973)
  • April – British-born DEA agent Joan Bannister reports the details of DEACON 3 assassination plans to DEA headquarters where the anti-CIA faction (who actually were trying to stop the flow of drugs) turned around and then leaked her report to Washington Post columnist Jack Anderson. Anderson then alleged that the DEA was providing cover for a CIA assassination unit and supposedly included revelations that the Senate had investigated IGO chief Conein for shopping around for assassination devices, like exploding ashtrays and telephones. Conein managed to keep his job, but the trail led to his comrade from the OSS, Mitch Werbell.
  • Mitch Werbell gets indicted for his arms dealings with CIA banker Robert Vesco. Linked with Singlaub and Conein. Mitch original connection to John Singlaub and Tom Clines, as well as Howard Hunt, Paul Helliwell, Lucien Conein, formed at the OSS mission at Kunming China during and after WWII. According to the Wall Street Joumal, OSS payments at this base were frequently made with five-pound shipments of opium. Singlaub was the US Chief of Staff of both United Nations and American forces in South Korea, where in 1965 he and Conein arranged a ‘fixed percentage’ of the opium profits went to the Siagon government.39
  • May 2 – The Church of Scientology of California (CSC) requested that the DEA make available for copying and inspection all records and information in its possession regarding the activities of “The Church of Scientology of California, Church of Scientology, or Scientology”. Initially, the DEA admitted the possession of only four documents relating to the “Church of Scientology”. It stated that the information was contained in investigative files compiled for law enforcement purposes and therefore exempt from disclosure under the 7th exemption. Subsequently, the DEA received 14 further requests for information as to CSC, its related entities and its founder L. Ron Hubbard. Prior to the 1974 amendments, the 7th exemption of the FOIA covered: “investigatory files compiled, for law enforcement purposes except to the extent available by law to a party other than an agency . . . .”
  • DEACON 1 getting blown by other DEA agents of the anti-CIA faction. Overt agent Bill Logay charged that covert agent Bob Medell’s anti-Castro Cuban assets had penetrated the DEA on behalf of the Trafficante organization. DEACON 1 secretary Cecelia Plicet fanned the flames by claiming that Conein and Medell were using Principal Agent Tabraue to circumvent the DEA.  Plicet said that Medell and Conein worked for “the other side” and wanted the DEA to fail. These accusations prompted an investigation, after which Logay was reassigned to inspections and Medell was reassigned and replaced by Gary Mattocks, an NIO member of the Dirty Dozen. So, simply out with one dirty agent and in with another, is what happened there.

  • December 4 – After exhausting its administrative remedies, CSC brought an FOIA suit against the DOJ and DEA in federal court. In the meantime, the DEA had canvassed all of its 161 field offices, both foreign and domestic, and had located 126 other documents which were subject to CSC’s requests. The majority of those materials were released to CSC. However, the DEA refused to produce fifteen documents in their entirety invoking the 7(C) and 7(D) exemptions as to each of the documents plus other FOIA exemptions with respect to particular items. In addition, portions of nine other documents were not released on the grounds of the 7(C) and 7(D) exemptions. Of these twenty-four documents, eleven contained information from non-federal domestic law enforcement authorities, seven had data from foreign law enforcement sources, and the other six contained information supplied by individuals cooperating with the DEA.

1975 –

  • July – DaFeo – Public pressure about the allegations of CIA drug-trafficking resulted in that Congress and the Justice Department were having to appear to investigate the DEA’s relations with the CIA, investigating “allegations of fraud, irregularity, and misconduct” in the DEA. Plots to assassinate Torrijos and Noriega in Panama, as well as Tripodi’s Medusa Program were documented. In a draft report, one DEA inspector described Medusa as follows: “Topics considered as options included psychological terror tactics, substitution of placebos to discredit traffickers, use of incendiaries to destroy conversion laboratories, and disinformation to cause internal warfare between drug trafficking organizations; other methods under consideration involved blackmail, use of psychopharmacological techniques, bribery and even terminal sanctions.
  • Despite the flurry of investigations, new President Gerald Ford reconfirmed the CIA’s narcotic intelligence collection arrangement with the DEA.
  • Seymour Bolten’s staff that handled “all requests for files from the Church Committee,” investigations, which then concluded that allegations of drug smuggling by CIA assets and proprietaries “lacked substance.”
  • The Rockefeller Commission likewise gave the CIA a clean bill of health, falsely stating that Operation Twofold inspections project was terminated in 1973. It wasn’t. It’s a play on words. It ‘terminated’ because the BNDD was terminated as an organization. But in the new DEA, it was resurrected under Conein and his DEASOG unit. The Rockefeller Commission completely covered-up the existence of the operation unit hidden within the inspections program.
  • Sunday, January 26 – Arizona Republic article “WASHINGTON – Fifty-three former employes of the Central Intelligence Agency now work for the Drug Enforcement Administration as agents, analyst and clerks, the DEA has acknowledged. The two agencies routinely exchange information about international narcotics trafficking, said DEA Administrator John R. Bartels Jr. But “by mutual consent,” the CIA and the drug agency have canceled agreements under which federal drug agents trained CIA agents in narcotics intelligence work, Bartels said. ”  Nice misdirection try there by Bartels.  Twenty-seven more former CIA employes now work in the enforcement division, most of them as narcotics agents in the United States and abroad, Feldkamp said.

DEA officials have confirmed that Conien and the other DEA official, Cyril Frank, watched the demonstration volunteered by a salesman for a Virginia electronics company last spring. DEA spokesman Robert Feldkamp said Conien and Frank were shopping for wiretapping and bugging equipment and “told the salesman they weren’t interested” in other devices, designed to carry explosives…

1976 –

  • January – The Department of Justice brings in people from England, France, and across the nation to testify at the Church of Scientology V. DEA FOIA case, to try and stop the release of DEA records that would have revealed their complicity with CIA and the Big 3 drug smuggling network. “Among the government’s witnesses were Rocky Pomerance, Chief of Police, Miami Beach, Florida, and immediate past president of the International Association of Chiefs of Police; Vernon J. Calhoun, Chief of the Division of Investigation and Narcotics, Nevada State Police; James Taylor, First Deputy Police Commissioner, New York City Police Department; David C. Dilley, Commander, Metropolitan Police and Intelligence Branch, Scotland Yard, London, England; and Francis Le Moeul, Controller General, French National Police, and Chief, French Bureau of Narcotics.” This basically represents the main power-points of the smuggling network. Miami and Nevada for bringing the drugs into the U.S., British intelligence, French Intelligence, and the CIA. All that’s missing is the Vatican, but they are actually there just behind some of the names listed above.
  • January 8 – news article detailing that Francois LeMouel, the head of the Central Office for the Suppression of Illicit Drug Trafficking at the DCPJ (1971-81) threatens the U.S. regarding releasing DEA documents to the Church of Scientology.  The Department of Justice refers to Lemouel’s titles as: Francis Le Moeul, Controller General, French National Police, and Chief, French Bureau of Narcoticswhich means he is in deep within the network. In fact, Lemouel worked closely with CIA drug smuggling handlers like Paul Knight (see January 1972) and Terrence Burke. Also see 1971 for when the truth of French cooperation started leaking out in a court case.
  • Mitch WerBell indicted on drug smuggling charges. Lucien Conein, appeared at WerBell’s drug trial to testify for the defense, but he didn’t have to because the case was thrown out after the mysterious death of the key witness, Ken Burstine in a plane crash. 39

  • Congresswoman Bella Abzug took up the mantle and tried to get some accountability going with the CIA. She submitted questions to the new Director of Central Intelligence George H.W. Bush, about the CIA’s central role in international drug trafficking. Bush’s response was to cite a 1954 agreement with the Justice Department that gave the CIA the right to block prosecution or keep its crimes secret in the name of national security. Bush made sure it was known that CIA acquired intelligence [remember how they deliberately surveilled their own operatives to make what they were doing inadmissible in court] cannot be used in prosecutions. The CIA refused to identify its assets in court and 27 prosecutions were dismissed on national security grounds.
  • Conein’s IGO was supposedly disbanded in 1976, as part of misdirecting public attention seeking after a grand jury sought DEACON I intelligence regarding several drug busts. So they can say “we don’t do that anymore.” while simply shifting operations to a new location. (see 1977)
  • A number of DEASOG CIA officers and assets simply shunted on over to work for Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North, the key National Security Council aide under President Ronald Reagan in the Iran-Contra drug and terror network.
  • Francisco Chanes, an erstwhile DEACON asset, owned two seafood companies that would soon allegedly come to serve as fronts in Oliver North’s Contra supply network, receiving and distributing tons of Contra cocaine.
  • CIA officer/DEA agent Gary Mattocks was deemed “unwelcome in the DEA” but was simply moved back to the CIA officially and assigned to the CIA’s narcotics unit in Peru.

1977 –

  • DEA’s Assistant Administrator for Enforcement sent a memo, co-signed by the six enforcement division chiefs, to DEA chief Peter Bensinger. As the memo stated, “All were unanimous in their belief that present CIA programs were likely to cause serious future problems for DEA, both foreign and domestic.” Peter Bensinger ignored it and continued playing bag-man for the CIA using the DEA. He created a program called CENTAC to supposedly target drug trafficking organization worldwide through the early 1980s. As its director Dennis Dayle famously said, “The major targets of my investigations almost invariably turned out to be working for the CIA.

 

1978 –

    The absolute hysterical hatred still directed at President’s Jackson and Jefferson is literally a dead giveaway. These men literally cannot talk about Jackson without insulting him one way or another. The Larouche book on this subject went into an absolute tirade about how these two men had stopped the wonderful plan for America that of course…LaRouche was now trying to sell a new generation of Americans on. This goes all the way back to the Catholic Popes and their tirades about Jeffersonian principles in the 1800’s. See this post and this one.

  • Mitch Werbell, La Rouche hooked up – Dennis King Full book at the Internet Archive Chapter Five: “The Reading trio did indeed operate a scam. However, the LaRouchians had a history of extensive dealings with the intelligence community dating back over a decade, entirely apart from this. The NCLC first offered its services to the CIA in 1976. A longtime CIA contract agent subsequently became LaRouche’s security adviser and meetings with several retired high-level CIA officials took place. By the early 1980s the LaRouchians enjoyed a wide range of contacts at the CIA, the National Security Council, the Defense Intelligence Agency, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.” The LaRouche organization built a private intelligence gathering network which rivaled that of many governments and major media.

Evidence came out that Banco Ambrosiano could not account for almost $1.3 billion dollars of funds – because it was from drug-trafficking, of course. Calvi fled Italy, found hung from a London bridge soon after.
  • The Italian government issued an arrest order for Vatican IOR banker, archbishop Paul Marcinkus and two bank subordinates as “accessories to fraudulent bankruptcy,” but the Vatican, an independent state, refused to comply and cited diplomatic immunity. The Italian high court agreed, allowing the archbishop to avoid standing trial.  Paul Marcinkus’s excuse for using drug-trafficking profits to fund the Catholic Church was: “You can’t run a church on Hail Mary’s.

  • June – Vernon J. Calhoun, one of the people called by the Justice Department to block the FOIA request to the DEA by the Church of Scientology, together with Tony Rizzivuto and Butch Sears was leading a sham ‘tracking’ of the Felix Gallardo smuggling, (Sinaloa Cartel). The same smuggling, of course, which was totally sanctioned at the highest levels within the DEA, CEA etc. as part of Iran Contra.

1984 –

  • The secret Gladio network first came to light in 1984 when one of it’s agents, far-right terrorist Vincenzo Vinciguerra, revealed its existence during his trial. This was denied and passed off as “crazy talk” until six years later.
  • CIA officer/DEA agent Gary Mattocks joined the Contra support operation as Eden Pastora’s case officer.
  • In that capacity Mattocks was present in 1984 when CIA officers handed pilot Barry Seal a camera and told him to take photographs of Sandinista official Federico Vaughn loading bags of cocaine onto Seal’s plane. A DEA “special employee,” Seal was running drugs for Jorge Ochoa Vasquez and purportedly using Nicaragua as a transit point for his deliveries.
  • North asked DEA officials to instruct Seal, who was returning to Ochoa with $1.5 million, to deliver the cash to the Contras. When the DEA officials refused, North leaked a blurry photo, purportedly of Vaughn, to the right-wing Washington Times. For partisan political purposes, on behalf of the Reagan administration, Oliver North blew the DEA’s biggest case at the time, and the DEA did nothing about it, even though DEA Administrator Jack Lawn said in 1988, in testimony before the Subcommittee on Crime of the Committee on the Judiciary, that leaking the photo “severely jeopardized the lives” of agents.

 

  • May – Mexican journalist gunned down for exposing the CIA/DEA drugs for arms operation in Mexico. Washington Post article: Jack Anderson and Dale Can Atta,  August 21, 1990
    As one of Mexico’s most renowned investigative journalists, Manuel Buendia had stepped on a lot of toes by the time he was gunned down in May 1984. But it turns out his murder was more than mere retribution by one of the many corrupt officials and drug runners he had unmasked through his sleuthing. It now appears Buendia, known by some as Mexico’s Jack Anderson, was slain in a sweeping coverup of an international drug-dealing network that had the complicity of the Mexican government and had even looped in the CIA. The intrepid Buendia had tread uncomfortably close to illegal drug operations protected by Mexico’s one-time version of the FBI, and used by the CIA to ship arms to contra guerrillas in Nicaragua. […]Drug Enforcement Agency documents recently disclosed at a Los Angeles trial in the murder of a DEA agent show Buendia was investigating figures in government and the drug industry. The DEA reports reveal agency interviews with an American, Laurence Victor Harrison, who set up radio communications for Mexican drug barons in the mid-1980s. In an interview last February, Harrison said he knew as an insider that Buendia was investigating links between the drug trade and Mexican officials. Among the officials he was asking questions about was Manuel Bartlett Diaz, then Zorilla’s boss as interior minister. Bartlett now is education minister.[…]Harrison told the DEA that Buendia got some leads from Javier Juarez Vasquez, then-editor of the newspaper Primera Plana. Vasquez’s tortured body was found a day after Buendia’s murder. Vasquez had told Buendia about a ranch allegedly owned by drug traffickers and used by the CIA to train guerrillas.

    [That was Sinaloan cartel members Quintero, Gallardo etc., who came from the previous network of Pedro Aviles Perez, a native of Durango, who had been the protector and teacher of Quintero, an infamous drug boss and considered the father of Mexican organized crime aka the Mexican Mafia before Conein and the Scientologists took him down as part of CIA operation DEACON 3 run out of the DEA. Perez principally worked in San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora (red marker – right on top of the U.S. border practically) although his many ranches stretched from Sonora down to Sinaloa. Perez’s former right-hand man Gallardo himself was considered an asset by the CIA, due to the financial and material assistance he provided to the Contras in Nicaragua. Quintero lent the CIA his ranches in Jalisco and Veracruz so they could train the Contras.] Apparently Buendia’s source also had turned up information about airstrips owned by drug lords and used by the CIA to fly arms to contras. The DEA report says pilots who flew arms were allowed to make the return trip more profitable by picking up cocaine in Colombia. They would refuel at the airstrips en route to Miami.When we asked CIA spokesman Mark Mansfield about the allegations, he insisted the “CIA never used Mexican drug traffickers or territory as a conduit for support of any type to the contras.” But contra sources told our associate Dean Boyd that Mexican airstrips had figured into the arms effort. Senate investigators confirmed they were the same ones run by drug traffickers.“Buendia had gotten it all, but what could have been his greatest scoop never made it into print.”See 1974 for comparison to planted CIA propaganda in the press and  and see 1971 Vernon Calhoun “air smuggling” supposed effort – Calhoun was called for the DEA to protest releasing documents to the Church of Scientology, see 1976.

 

1989 –

  • The CIA instructed Gary Mattocks to testify as a defense witness at the trial of DEACON 1 Principal Agent Gabriel Tabraue who had earned $75 million from drug trafficking, while working as a CIA and DEA asset. The judge declared a mistrial based on Mattocks’s testimony. Tabraue was released.

1990 –

  • CIA agent Terrence Burke Acting Head of DEA.
  • October 24, The President of Italy, Francesco Cossiga, admitted his long involvement in the network to the Chamber of Deputies saying: “I am proud of the fact that we have kept the secret of Gladio for 45 years.
  • President George H. W. Bush refused to comment about Gladio. An unnamed U.S. government official familiar with Gladio said, “If there are allegations that the CIA was involved in terrorist activities in Italy, they are absolute nonsense” and that the continued existence of the force in Italy was “solely an Italian operation. We have no control over it whatsoever.
  • British Defence Secretary, Tom King, said that he had never heard of Gladio.

1998 –

  • June – Slavemasters still trying to deny what they did to America. In Lucien Conein’s obituary, CIA mouthpiece,  The Washington Post reported that: He was in media headlines in the mid-1970s when then-Sen. Lowell Weicker (R-Conn.) investigated allegations that a DEA unit was preparing to arrange the assassination of drug lords. These charges were denied, and nothing was ever proven.

This completes the highly condensed version of the history “scene” surrounding the creation of two key Scientology sub-organizations of the Church of Scientology – the Guardian’s Office (and it’s private “CIA”) and the Sea Organization.

All of the above has been taken from several of our well-researched articles and posts here at out blog.

The international drug-trafficking network had been operating for more than 20 years by the time some erstwhile Guardian’s Office intelligence agent stumbled across the tip of the iceberg of it.

You’ve seen how one of the key parts of this network, the Operation Gladio cells, was systematically denied by those involved until all the way into the 1990’s, almost another 20 years after Guardian’s Office personnel first started broaching the subject of U.S. involvement in drug-trafficking in the late 1970’s.

This was not something these people wanted the world to know about.

But, now that it does (at least partially) I think it’s worth examining what may have been one of the earliest attempts to expose what was going on – by the Guardian Office – because as soon as they did that?

The hammer fell, and hard, and the Guardian Office was no more.

 

black scroll divider

What Happened?

 

What happened to the Guardian Office?

Let’s start with the FBI raid on July 8, 1977. A Press Release issued by the Scientology Guardian Office members alleges they were raided because of “narcotics cartels”.35

Is there any truth to that?

Yes.

Let’s take a look at a few key excerpts first.

Two years ago we first heard the rumors that there was another aspect to the infamous “French Connection” that involved both Interpol and governmental officals. But it was not until a few months ago when the NCLE’s Director of Research toured Europe that we were able to uncover the first supporting evidence. Only weeks ago did we make this material public, requesting that the Department of Justice investigate the evidence we found. The Justice Department’s response came early this morning when FBI agents took sledgehammers, crowbars and lock cutters to our Churches and broke into our offices […]

A few months ago the NCLE’s Research Director was traveling through Europe to find the drug and CIA connections we had heard rumored so long.35

So, what this is saying is that ‘weeks’ ago – back from July of 1977 – they had made some material public that exposed the U.S. (and other governments) complicity in the French Connection drug smuggling.

Well, we know that is true. They were. You just got done reading all about the Operation Gladio drug-smuggling and control of drug-trafficking to bring in huge amounts of drugs into the U.S. and that scientologists (including some Guardian Office members) were involved in all that and had deep ties to the CIA and MI6 through L. Ron Hubbard.

A fact that the CIA tried to deny, just like they were then doing about their involvement in drug-smuggling.

1974 – April

CIA Defends Hubbard

tucson_daily_citizen_mon__sep_1__1975_Guardian’s Office PR department staff Arte Maren –

Maren said a letter from Angus Thuermer, CIA assistant director, last April confirms that the Apollo “is in no way associated with or connected to this agency.1

1975 – last week of August

A report by Agence France-Presse Service last week said a church-owned yacht with 285 young American scientologists had been banned from ports in Trinidad and Tobaco and in barbados amid unconfirmed rumors branding it a “spy ship” for the CIA.1

G.O. PR Arte Maren denied it, citing a letter from the CIA. (see 1974 April)

Note: This is exactly as per the Lucian Conein/CIA policies and operations – Operation CHAOS etc. – about discrediting in the press anyone who threatens their drug-smugglingoperations in any way, be it drug-trafficker or bonafide investigator or whistleblower. (see 1971 and 1972 simple timeline) In this case such press also serves a dual function, it helped to keep L. Ron Hubbard’s intelligence cover in place.

– – –

But, what did somebody in the Guardian Office discover and publish? Were they just show-boating and doing their typical scientology carnival barker routine or was it actually something significant?

Let’s have a look.

PDF – Scientology – Guardian’s Office ACLE November 22 1978 Secret Attorney General Report Drug Smuggling Corruption DEA

The leaked FBI files 35 (that the above was found in) show that on November 22, 1978, the FBI reported on the Church of Scientology front group called American Citizens for Honesty in Government – ACHG – for distributing literature at the Federal Courthouse in Omaha Nebraska. They circulated a secret Justice Department report detailing Federal crimes carried out by the Drug Enforcement Administration. Ten picketers demonstrated for two hours carrying signs accusing FBI and CIA (and other agencies) of conducting corrupt practices, interfering with political reform and individual liberty.

The secret Justice Department report that the FBI agent attached was itself is prefaced by a flier which says:

Dear Government Employee,

Attached you will find a copy of a secret Justice Department report that details Federal crimes carried out by employee of the Drug Enforcement Administration. This is being distributed to you as an example of corruption which has occurred within one Federal Agency.

Although no charges have been levied against any of the officials involved, following the release of the report by the Church of Scientology’s newspaper Freedom, Church officials predicted indictments against their members for releasing this type of information would occur shortly rather than against corrupt government officials.

The report was part of what has been dubbed the Defeo Investigation. It’s dated June 10, 1975 to the Attorney General from DEA employees Michael A. Defeo, Thomas H. Henderson, Jr. and Arthur F. Norton. It references Attorney General’s Order No. 600-75, Assigning Employees to Investigate Allegations of Frud, Irregularity and Misconduct in the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Subject of the report is: Additional Integrity Matters.

Here’s the thing though.

A lot (but not all) of what is in this report was taken from testimony to the Senate Subcommittee in 1974 and 1975, which, of course, was not secret.

For example, the 1975 January 26 – Arizona Republic article revealed that Conein was shopping for assassination devices, wiretapping and bugging equipment. This is one of the items discussed on page 11 of the PDF.

C. B.R. Fox Laboratories.

Conein, on behalf of DEA, has purchased a total of $4,760.80 worth of surveillance equipment from B.R. Fox Laboratories of Alexandria, Virginia. The purchase involved surveillance cameras, recording and transmitting equipment. The agent for B.R. Fox was the same James P. Muldoon mentioned above. Conein used B.R. Fox because his ‘bona fides’ were established with that company and they could obtain sanitzed equipment quickly. Conein indicated that sanitzed equipment is the kind that cannot be traced to manufacturer or purchaser, and that this is necessary because the Government must have deniability.

During the course of his dealins with B.R. Fox, Conein was shown certain explosive equipment, which could be characterized as assassination devices. Conein described this demonstration as an unsolicited side show…he had no interest in them […]

What the report itself does have, as you can see, is a lot more detail and it does talk quite a bit about Lucien Conein. For example, on page 8 it talks about Operation Croupier working together with Intertel regarding “drug smuggling on Paradise Island in Nassau”, as stated by DEA agent Bario in testimony before the Senate Subcommittee. That’s just one item.

The real problem with this report and what the whole FBI raid hinged upon, is that it was a private document and was not released at the time the Guardian Office revealed it in their Freedom mag article – published only weeks before the FBI raid in 1977.

How do I know that’s what the raid hinged upon?

Because of this document.

Look at what it specifically says that the FBI search warrants were issued on the basis of.

the search warrants were issued for the purpose of recovering stolen Government property

OK.

Now look at what Ken Whitman said in the 1977 Guardian Office press release after the raid –

[…]The government has spent more than 100 million dollars of taxpayers money trying to eliminate us while billions of dollars worth of heroin was being successfully shipped into the United States from France, over a twenty year period, by an allied intelligence organization. We broke a story on this just prior to the July 1977 FBI raid. Just why IS this country infested with drugs?

 

Combined with the DEA case precedent set blocking the release of incriminating documents, then releasing that secret report ABOUT Conein etc. is what set the hounds after the Guardian Office.

Not because the Guardian Office was therefore ‘good guys’ or any other such nonsense. If anything, that would have been dupes at work within the Guardian Office who thought they were actually really going after the ‘bad guys’.

No, not that they were ‘good guys’ at all.

But what else might some dupes have collected as part of Operation Snow White that could expose that it was TRUE (which it was) about all the drugs being smuggled into the U.S.

THAT was why the raid.

And down the Guardian Office went. The purge of its staff, all of it was done to try and stop any forward motion or exposure activities that ‘dupes’ might have been about to do.

It was replaced by the chosen New Front Man of scientology, David Miscavige, with the Office of Special Affairs who busies itself doing absolutely nothing of any worth as to real investigation and exposure of this kind of thing that should be exposed.

THAT also answers the question of why scientology doesn’t actually do anything about the real Rat Bastards of this planet, and instead invariably goes after everyone else BUT them.

And why it especially goes after those that are, in any real way, effectively going along the same investigatory line the Guardian Office was on when it was destroyed.

That’s a count-it-on-one-hand list of people, and it sure doesn’t include anyone you see any current Scientology media-whore stories about.

As a parenthetical note here, 1977 news stories continued to attempt to reveal this DEA smuggling connection – which again, was very true.

Winona Daily News, July 10, 1977: Church Fought IRS, 2 pages. (gives details about set up to FBI Raid, and smuggling of DEA with response by DEA) – “A spokesman for the drug Enforcement Administration termed the smuggling ring charge “patently ridiculous.

In Conclusion –

Ken Whitman, 1977 –

The FBI has not permitted the Church to xerox copies of material they took, however Church observers indicate that FBI is on a fishing expedition. …They have, in effect, proven to us that our research is correct, that there is a massive, international narcotics cartel heretofore unrevealed which is operating with the knowledge and consent of highly placed governmental officials both here and abroad who will go to any means and use any tactics to prevent its disclosure.35

Still true today.

I hope that you have enjoyed this library article and that it has helped to shed some light for you on what really happened to the Guardian Office and why, and what it was that at least some staff there were stepping right on top of and exposing.

It bears the following inscription in pencil: Received from Warren G. Haskins, $15,000 (signed) Norris A. Grambo.” I went in search of this paper on the day the newspapers disclosed the “scandal” of the Central Intelligence Agency’s connections with American students and labor leaders. For I was Warren G. Haskins. Norris A. Grambo was Irving Brown, of the American Federation of Labor. The $15,000 was from the vaults of the CIA, and the yellow paper is the last memento I possess of a vast and secret operation…It was my idea to give $15,000 to Irving Brown. He needed it to pay off his strong-arm squads in the Mediterranean ports, so that American supplies could be unloaded against the opposition of Communist dock workers.”
