Encyclopedia of The Bad Guys
the British control of the “Near” and “Middle” East efforts
By Virginia McClaughry
An online book called Istanbul Intrigues – A True Life Casablanca by Barry Rubin, is written in a wonderfully evocative style that transports you into the Turkey of the 1940’s – like something out of an old Humphrey Bogart movie. I highly recommend it.
Colonel Valerian “Vala” Lada Mocarski (code-name Juniper) had come to Istanbul from OSS Cairo as Donovan’s personal representative to help ensure that everything went well – he was the OSS station chief in Cairo and also one of the people slated to be dropped into Hungary.
Valerian was a Russian émigré, who happened to also sit with Allen Dulles on the Board of Directors of the American branch of the British-owned Schroder bank. Its been said that the men that controlled Schroder Bank were distant cousins of a scar-faced Prussian baron who served as a general in the SS.
A de-classified letter from 1960 from Mocarski to Dulles shows the name of the bank, and that Mocarski is an attorney (use of the term “esquire”) as well.
Valerian was part of a “clique” of OSS persons that were former Russian anti-Bolsheviks and were, some of them, “fallen” nobility, and I believe was himself one of the “fallen”.
It’s been said that the wife of Chicago banker Lester Armour (one of my relatives on My Family Tree) was a Romanov, a relative of Czar Nicholas. Lester was the last OSS commander in London before the end of the War, he was the Director of the Central European Office – which means he was under my other relative, James Russell Forgan, who was head of the European Theatre of the OSS.
Valerian (such an exotic name don’t you think?) was born in 1898, in Samarkand, Turkestan, the son of a Czarist general.* He became a commercial banker, and when he first went into the OSS he was the Special Intelligence Chief of the OSS Cairo.

As I said, he was on the board of Schroder’s Bank, (he was Vice-Chairman of the New York branch) as were several other key personnel of WWII that engaged in cloaking nazi assets and money laundering of stolen Jewish (and others) property taken under the guise of “war-time”.
When Hoover (head of the FBI) started investigating many of the British front companies in America that were engaged in this cloaking of assets, he and his agents were largely thwarted at every turn.
Note: None of the following was known by the average public until May 2004, when the CIA declassified thousands of documents from World War I and II time periods, due to the Nazi War Crimes Disclosure Act of 1998.
The FBI, in November 1939, began tracing expenditures from the German consular account at Chase National.
In October 1940, the FBI learned of the whole Rueckwanderer business (see rueckwanderer in book here), they then raided and seized documents that proved that Chase National and the others (companies etc.) had clearly acted as agents of the German government without informing the Department of State, as was required by law. Prosecution for violations of the 1917 Espionage Act and the 1939 Foreign Agents Act were considered, as well as a conspiracy charge too. The Justice Department moved to prosecute in 1941, which clearly they could have won as Chase was DIRTY, big-time.
On June 9, 1942, Hoover was informed that after consultation with Mathias Correa, U.S. Attorney for the southern district of New York, the U.S. Attorney General Francis Biddle (who had only been elected September 5, 1941), refused to prosecute Chase. Allegedly, what had happened was that Chase’s lead lawyer threatened to reveal FBI, Army, and Navy sources and methods in open court.
Note: Biddle? That can’t be a coincidence. He’s got to be a descendant of Nicholas Biddle, the dirty rat who tried to stop President Andrew Jackson from breaking the bankers choke-hold on the U.S. in the 1830’s. So here is another Biddle allowing the criminal bankers to get off scot-free? That’s really something.
The FBI dubbed this extensive network of linked companies as the “Schroder/Dulles Network”.
The Schroder banking house had extensive influence in Latin America primarily through its New York, London, and Hamburg offices.
Valerian often traveled to South America, despite his other “hats” as head of intelligence OSS Cairo.
Here’s one example from May 24th 1940, where he was coming back from Buenos Aires.
Kurt Schroder, who was a member of the ‘Circle of Friends of the Reichsfuhrer’, after setting up yet another “special” account for Heinrich Himmler in Stern bank, was promoted to SS Brigadefuhrer by Himmler. This was at the time that Allen Dulles sat on Schroder’s board of directors. Through the German brokerage company Albert and Westirch, and Dulles’ legal firm, Sullivan and Cromwell, an impenetrable web of companies “laundered” the concealed SS assets.
Just after the war the FBI uncovered key documentation of links between Dulles and Schroder in New York and the deliberate diversion of IG Farben and Stalhwerke’s assets, but they were hamstrung again in bringing these men to justice.
Allen Dulles, from his apartment at Herringasse 23 in Bern, Switzerland presided over the European Theatre of intelligence operations as the OSS Chief. He continued the tight relationship with his “City of London” masters as well as his fellow Schroder directors such as Valerian Mocarski.
Apparently (according to a report by Swiss Intelligence Chief Colonel Roger Masson) Dulles referred to his apartment as ‘a financial research unit’.
Schroder Bank was one of the oldest banks in the City of London.
It was heavily involved in financially supporting the Third Reich.
The Director (at the time – F.C. Tiarks) of Schroder Bank in England was also a director of the Bank of England.
In the U.S., support for Hitler came through City of London compatriots Rockefeller and Forgan/Schiff/Seligman banks such as Chase, and through corporations such as the American International Corporation.
Part of the planning for ‘world domination’ by the men who frequented the City of London was Hitler – and WWII.
It was initially supposed to be another arranged War for profit, punishment, and ultimately control of Germany and Russia.
However, they had created a monster in Hitler, and had also miscalculated just how much hatred there was for them – that they had misdirected onto the Jewish people and then it was like putting gasoline on a fire.
The raw hatred for what had been done to peoples during the last two hundred years far outstripped anything these Slavemasters even dreamed would happen with their parlor room global chess game.
Hitler did far better than was expected, which was the first shocker.
Since this was obviously not going to be a quick fling of a war, the slavemasters had big problems with possible exposure of U.S., British, Vatican, and German involvement in ‘creating’ Hitler and the war conditions they had so zealously thought to control.
Politicians, controlled media, war propaganda and then the OSS all tried to play catch-up as the war progressed in severity and destruction – their number one goal was to hide the part played by London (and their counterparts in the US) in directly orchestrating this mess.
As head of OSS Special Intelligence Cairo, Valerian did tend to get around.
His main task was securing the Middle East for the British slavemasters so they could dominate the oil industry.

Towards the end of the war, Valerian was directing OSS intelligence in Lugano as OSS Director of Central European Office.
After the war Valerian became a trustee of something called the American Craftsmen’s Council, which had been formed in 1943 in NYC, New York.

Valerian is listed as the Treasurer of this organization, in Outlook Vol.5, No. 9, November 11, 1964.
His 1971 New York Times obituary says that this (1964) was the year that he retired from Schroders Bank.
Valerian met Laura “Polly” Mitchell Klots, and emigrated to the U.S. in 1923. But there is another record just a year later, of his marriage in New York, in the 1924 (certificate #31023), but yet the census of Manhattan for 1930 shows his wife to be a “Miriam” Lada-Mocarski.
This is a big image – click to enlarge.
So…I’m not sure what happened there? Divorced and remarried, or married again, wrong given in other online histories as “Laura” or what.
Since it’s an official census, I’m gonna go with that his real wife is named Miriam.
Here is his naturalization petition.
Here is his service record –
