The Subtle Seeds of the Terror War (1986) By: Peter Chamberlin
The primary beneficiaries of the terror war are the old money and the power elite, who alone will remain standing after the final sifting-down process has concentrated all wealth into a few hands. It is inaccurate to blame it all on the Zionist bankers, or a Jewish conspiracy even though there is a preponderance of Jewish financiers and many key positions within the conspiracy are held by Jewish intellectuals. Nonetheless, the Zionists are the key to the unfolding drama. Israeli domination of the Middle East has always been the focus of the terror war, even when the focus of that thirty year old war was the Soviets. The international elite (the super-wealthy of all races) will be the final sifters of everyone’s wealth, with the CIA serving them, offering-up the Jews as a scapegoat or a distraction, to deflect blame away from the agency.
The CIA parallel government which spawned the Iran/contra drugs/arms/money/public diplomacy pipeline kept the illegal network intact after Iran/contra, to fund its creation of an “Islamic militant network” and to use them to create the war on terror. This agency is bent on serving the evil internationalist elite, instead of the American people and the Constitution they have all swore to uphold. The mysterious death of reporter Steve Kangas, who explored the deep connections between the CIA and the corporate world, and the New Right, is a warning to all who will follow that it is dangerous to explore some truth.
For those of you in search of this dangerous knowledge, follow me into the labyrinth, as I use the recently released “Lost Chapter” from the Iran/Contra commission report to throw a little light into the dark world which holds us all captive. I can confirm that some parts of the story revealed therein are true, because I was there, seeking to help my country, serving as an unwitting part of a network that was created to bring democratic freedom to an end in America and the world.
At that time (1985-1988), I was approached by many groups because I had previously switched my activist loyalties from the Democrats and the “nuclear freeze” issue to Reagan and the “peace through strength” doctrine. I saw his plan to spend the Soviets into submission as the safest way to end the cold war. As a mouthy, hard-hitting activist/writer, I was considered “ripe” for recruitment into the leadership levels of the conservative movement.
From 1985 to 1986, I wrote articles and letters, and lobbied for aid to groups that were depicted as “freedom fighters” at that time, in Central America and Afghanistan. I was a hard-core advocate for the Afghan Mujahedeen, in their fight against the Soviets. I contributed to, and was part of the Committee for a Free Afghanistan (CFA), which was either a lobbying group or a political action committee PAC. I believed that it was the right thing to do at the time (and still do), to support brave Afghan men who were fighting to expel a Communist occupation. I saw it as a reflection of our own anti-colonialist revolution. I support all anti-colonialist freedom fighters.
Because of my activist activities to end the cluster-bombing of Afghan children, I was approached to do the same thing on behalf of the anti-Sandinista “Contras” in Central America, who were allegedly fighting the same anti-Communist fight. A good friend and mentor, Jerome Distel, from my hometown, was a member of Heritage Foundation’s “President’s Club,” an exclusive group with a $1,000 membership, which promised exclusive access to the Reagan Administration. I remembered the classy invitation he had received to the event, after seeing it again in the “Lost Chapter” of the Congressional contra investigation report:
“A typical invitation to a briefing stated in pertinent part:
‘You are one of a small group of dedicated
Americans who has stood by President Reagan . . . in
support of his agenda . .. It will be a pleasure
to meet you in Washington on [date] when you attend
our special security briefing followed by a working
dinner . . . Please be reminded that your
accommodations at the Hay Adams Hotel are taken care
of and there is no expense to you.’”
Mr. Distel invited me to be his aide (pushing his wheelchair) at this Heritage Foundation conference and fund-raising dinner in Washington for the contras, in early 1986. United States Ambassador to The United Nations Jeanne Kirkpatrick would be giving a speech at the banquet. I understood that the purpose of the conference was to solicit public funds for the “pipeline” that supplied money and supplies to the contras to kill Soviet advisors and their revolutionary allies in Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. The plan was to start there and to sweep-out all the Soviet military forces from Central America, southward, all the way to Columbia. I was ok with that, seeing it as an extension of the anti-Communist war.
The “Democracy Project” for Central America may have failed with the prosecution of the crimes committed by key members of “the enterprise,” but the pipeline that they created to move the money, fighters, guns and equipment, is still there today, moving their biggest product, drugs, “candy” for America and the rest of the world. (See: Cocaine planes make a “Bogotá Connection”)
“CIA, Guantanamo, Torture, Cocaine”
The pipeline in Afghanistan and Pakistan is still there as well, running at full capacity all these years, moving all those nasty money-makers and life-takers through it, fomenting the “war on terrorism” that we are told to believe that it is no fault of our own. It is the men, materiel and opium which moves freely through this CIA pipeline that haunts American, NATO and Pakistani troops there today.
That Washington conference marked the beginning of my disillusionment with the contras and with the entire “conservative” movement in general. Because of the over-whelming creepy vibe given-off at that meeting of fat cats and wannabes, who were looking to hire Nicaraguan hit men to do America’s dirty work (and the simultaneously unfolding disclosure that the Contras were terrorists operating death squads and drug rings), I began to sense that the whole effort was really something of a completely opposite nature. It was not an anti-colonialist movement at all. Everything was a deception. This was the empire striking back at homegrown resistance movements.
The Heritage Foundation conference,
which was allegedly for Catholic aid groups serving Central America, is documented in the “Lost Chapter” manuscript:
“[the network, with] continuing help from Oliver North, created an inter-governmental structure the purposes and activities of which were masked from
Congress and public view… hired outside consultants and gave
encouragement, support and direction to groups of private
citizens outside the government. These groups raised money for
Contra weapons, lobbied the Congress, ran sophisticated media…
Campaigns…worked with S/LPD to influence American public opinion through manipulation of the American press… a network of private foundations and organizations. used White House briefings and private meetings with the President to raise more than $10,000,000 from private contributors, almost all for the Contra cause.
Approximately $1.7 million was ‘washed’ by Channell through Miller’s domestic and Cayman Island entities International Business Communications (IBC) and I.C., Inc. –to the Enterprise, where it was co-mingled with funds from third country contributions and the Iranian arms sale.
The Miller/Channell network was able to operate successfully until the latter part of 1986, when increased government aid to the Contras and public disclosure of
both the Iranian arms sales and the Contra resupply network made
further assistance efforts unnecessary and unwise.
Frank Gomez was to write talking point papers on Central America; prepare speaker kits; identify and refute distortions and false allegations regarding U.S. policy; draft sample speeches; prepare Op/Ed pieces and feature articles; assist Central American refugees and exiles visiting Washington; arrange media events for them; and make them available for Congressional interviews.
Roy Godson and the Heritage Foundation…raise money for the Catholic Church in Nicaragua…The format used in raising money for the Nicaraguan Refugee Fund –a White House briefing followed by a
function at the Hay Adams Hotel.
The briefing was held…in the Old Executive Office Building with North as the principal speaker…After the briefing, the potential donor group was taken across the street for a reception and dinner at the Hay Adams Hotel… These group briefings occurred on October 17, 1985; November 21, 1985; January 30, 1986; and March 27, 1986.
would be donating $100,000 to Heritage and the Catholic Church in Central America…the funds were to be transferred indirectly to the Catholic Church via a transfer from the Heritage
Foundation to INSI.
The Heritage grant to INSI would be used [for] the dissemination in Central America of
materials designed to educate the public on the
political and economic realities of United States policy objectives, and the collection of
scholarly responses to the materials…[which would be used for public diplomacy in the US, to inform the American people] on the Central American view of United States foreign and economic policy and how it relates to the political and economic future of Central American countries.
Select the scholars to participate in this program from among U.S. and Central American figures.
After Heritage transferred the $100,000 to INSI, Miller instructed INSI to transfer $80,000 of the grant to his Cayman Islands account from which funds were withdrawn as directed by North…that at least some of the money was transferred to Lake Resources.”
The Lost Report confirms what I have only suspected over the past twenty years, I was part of the Iran/Contra network and witnessed first-hand one of Oliver North’s slide presentations, pimping for the world empire. The only thing I remember from that presentation is that it was given by some guy in a uniform, who showed some satellite images of big Soviet airbases, allegedly in Nicaragua. (We were seated in the “nose bleed” upper section.)
In the next two years after the conference, I was invited to join a plethora of New Right organizations, think tanks, even a couple of PACs (political action committees): the Free Congress Research and Education Foundation, Committee for the Survival of a Free Congress, Committee for a Free Afghanistan, Young Americans for Freedom, Council for National Policy, Concerned Women for America, even the Republican National Committee. The thing that kept me from joining-up with most of them was the requests for donations.
Most of these committees and think tanks were sponsored by Heritage. I found this revealing explanation of the explosion of opportunities that had been offered to me:
“The Heritage Foundation has coordinated the meetings for a newly formed group called Third Generation. It is a group of young conservatives (born after 1952) attempting to develop an even more conservative agenda than their ‘elders.’”
Obviously, from the many political offers that had been flowing in since the Heritage event, I had been hand-picked by the political gurus associated with Heritage for that group (born in 1953).
All of these organizations contributed to and solicited money for the private network described in the Lost Chapter revelation.
“On December 14, 1986, the Lowell (Mass.) Sun ran a story under the headline ‘Money from Iranian Arms Sales Was Used to Back Conservatives During 1986 Election.’ The story stated that ‘[a]bout $5 million from the almost $30 million in excess raised from arms sales to Iran was filtered to conservative political action groups’ to ‘support candidates who backed President Reagan’s pro-Contra and Star Wars policies.’
The State Department was used to run a prohibited, domestic, covert propaganda operation…
The Administration’s redefinition of the term ‘public diplomacy’–especially its use in ‘educating’ the American public–and the longstanding statutory prohibition on the domestic dissemination by the U.S. Information Agency (USIA) of its materials to the American people. Under the terms of section 501 of the Smith-Mundt Act (the United States Information and Educational Exchange act of 1948, as amended–P.L. 80-402), USIA and its predecessor agencies have been enjoined from propagandizing the American people.”
[According to Smith-Mundt:
“The Smith-Mundt ban on domestic propaganda has been broadened over the years by subsequent legislation. The Foreign Relations Authorization Act of 1972 amended the Smith-Mundt Act to include a ban on disseminating within the United States any ‘information about the United States, its people, and its policies’ prepared for dissemination abroad. The Zorinsky Amendment added a new prohibition: ‘no funds authorized to be appropriated to the United States Information Agency shall be used to influence public opinion in the United States, and no program material prepared by the United States Information Agency shall be distributed within the United States.” ]
“In March 1988, GRAND JURY indictments were brought against North, Poindexter, Richard V. Secord, and Albert Hakim. The indictments included four distinct charges: conspiring to obstruct the U.S. government; diverting public funds from arms sales to Iran to aid the Contras in Nicaragua; stealing public funds for private ends; and lying to Congress and other government officials. With the exception of the routine criminal charge of theft, the most serious points in the indictments essentially accused the defendants of conducting a private foreign policy in violation of constitutional norm.”
As revealed in Lost Chapter:
“National Security Decision Directive 77
the issuing in January 1983 of National Security Decision Document (NSDD) 77, an NSC policy paper on the management of public diplomacy “relative to national security”…is classified, an unclassified version, released in March 1983:
A Special Planning Group (SPG) responsible for overall planning, direction, coordination, and monitoring of public diplomacy activities;
The Public Affairs/Nuclear Committee, to plan and coordinate on a regular basis U.S. Government domestic public affairs activities relating to foreign policy and national security issues (including countering the U.S. nuclear freeze movement);
The International Information Committee, to plan, coordinate, and implement international information activities in support of U.S.
The International Political Committee, to plan, coordinate, and implement international activities in support of U.S. policies and interests, including the interagency effort to support the growth of democracy abroad. It provides the nexus for the policymaking and information functions and formulates broad public diplomacy strategies for key issues and interests…to direct the concerned departments and agencies to implement political action strategies in support of key policy objectives
0liver North was reportedly named head of Project Democracy’s covert arm 1n October 1983, after McFarlane was appointed National Security Adviser.
[A] Saudi Prince who proposed donating to the Contras $14 million of profits derived from the sale of Saudi oil. North referred the Prince who used a variety of pseudonyms, the most common of which was Ebrahim al–Masoudi [probably Bandar]
On April 26, 1985, Miller and Gomez incorporated a Cayman Islands corporation known as I.C., Inc. [RM 1136-44]. This entity originally was intended to receive the profits from the transactions conducted with the Prince.
In May 1986, Miller changed the name of I.C.,
Inc., to “Intel Co-Operation, Inc.,”
Miller and Gomez formed another Cayman Islands corporation in early May 1986, World Affairs Counselors, Inc. (WACI), to receive the compensation approved by North.
In addition to using the participants in the network to promote the enterprise, North used the occasion to create disinformation about the network and to refute negative news stories about the work being done:
“[North] also told an anecdote about some Nicaraguan agents that were recently caught with dope and money and so forth and disguised as American agents.”
[Eugene H. Hasenfus (born January 22, 1941 in Florida) is a United States citizen who was an unemployed construction worker from Marinette, Wisconsin who secured work as a cargo handler for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)….He was aboard the Fairchild C-123 cargo plane shot down over Nicaragua on October 5, 1986, while delivering supplies to the Nicaraguan Contras.
Hasenfus’ capture and detention helped uncover and publicize the Iran-Contra Affair. A black book of phone numbers in the wreckage tied the plane to an operation run out of Ilopango airbase in El Salvador, supported by anti-Castro exile Felix Rodriguez. Press speculation focused on former general Jack Singlaub as the sponsor; this was encouraged by Oliver North to divert attention from the true head: Richard Secord.]
“The President, in his March 19, 1987 press conference said that he believed that contributors he met had donated money for political advertising for the Contras. [New York Times, 3/20/87]… He stated, ‘What about the private groups who pay for ads for the Contras?’
A ‘big ticket items’ list was prepared by North and used by him and Channell in a solicitation off Nelson Bunker Hunt.
In September 1985, Channell arranged a meeting in Dallas between North and Nelson Bunker Hunt…Hunt made two payments to NEPL, the tax-exempt National Endowment for the Preservation of Liberty, of $237,500 each.”
Nelson Bunker Hunt and William Herbert Hunt, as well as fellow billionaire and ultra right-wing zealot Joseph Coors, were the primary sponsors for many of the neo-fascist “conservative” organizations that comprise the “new right,” including the Heritage Foundation, most radical of these were the John Birch Society, the Council for National Policy and the World Anti-Communist League.
A famous name associated with the WACL is another “Contragate” figure, Major General John Singlaub was the head of the World Anti-Communist League in the late seventies:
“It has since become something far more important: an instrument for the practice of unconventional warfare — assassinations, death squads, sabotage — throughout the world.” Not only did the WACL adopt the techniques used by Nazis, but the Eastern European Nazi network as well…
there is a third type of Nazi, who is far more powerful, public, and dangerous than the other two: these are the Croatians, Slovaks, Ukrainians, Latvians who carried out the German-dictated massacres, who never faced a Nuremberg, and who joined the World Anti-Communist League… With the creations of the World Anti-Communist League, there came into existence a worldwide network of fascism…”
The first American League Chapter of the WACL was the American Council for World Freedom (ACWF)… Roger Pearson, served as the American League president for three years… …Pearson has traveled in New Right circles for many years, formerly as an editorial associate for such mainstream organizations as the Heritage Foundation and the American Security Council… On the other [hand], he is a white supremacist who warns of the dangers of whites breeding with ‘inferior’ stock… world chairman of the World Anti-Communist League in 1978…”
“Pearson’s Eugenics And Race: “Dr. Roger Pearson’s racialist theories are circulated worldwide by neo-Nazi and white supremacist organizations.” (6)
Pearson was brought to the U.S. in 1965 by Willis Carto, founder of the neo-fascist Institute for Historical Review (which denies the Holocaust) and the anti-Semitic Liberty Lobby, which publishes the weekly Spotlight newspaper. Roger Pearson…(allegedly) Josef Mengele’s co-researcher at Auschwitz,
“In addition to homegrown agitators who dredged up anti-Semitic motifs that harkened back to the 1930s…(Paul Weyrich and Free Congress Foundation named)”
“In 1984, Singlaub headed a Pentagon panel called to make recommendations on conducting military activities in Central America. The panel’s report urged the U.S. to emphasize nonconventional, counterinsurgency warfare strategies….
[Singlaub] became CIA deputy chief in South Korea during the Korean War and served for two years in Vietnam during the 1960s. At that time, he was commander of the Joint Unconventional Warfare Task Force, known as MACSOG, a political murder unit, in that role, he was one of the commanders of Operation Phoenix…a terrorist and drug operation in Southwest Asia which would form the experiential basis for the later theatre of operation: Latin America. Oliver North and Richard Secord were officers of the MACSOG unit. Other infamous underworld types, ‘former’ military and CIA officers, were involved with this unit: Felix I. Rodriguez, Ted Shackley and Donald Gregg:
This bunch became the heart of the ‘Enterprise’’ that went into action 15 to 20 years later in Iran- Contra. Shackley funded opium-growing Meo tribesmen in murder, and used the dope proceeds in turn to fund his hit squads. He formed the Military Assistance Group-Special Operations Group (MAG-SOG)… By 1971, the Shackley group had killed about 100,000 civilians in Southeast Asia as part of the CIA’s Operation Phoenix.” [other names in this the Phoenix group are: Thomas Clines, Richard Armitage, Edwin Wilson, Jerry O. Daniels, Hynnie Aderholdt, Ed Dearborn]
According to researcher Daniel Sheehan:
“Because Theodore Shackley, Thomas Clines and Richard Armitage knew that their secret anti-communist extermination program was going to be shut down in Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Thailand in the very near future, they, in 1973, began a highly secret non-CIA authorized program. Thus, from late 1973 until April of 1975, Theodore Shackley, Thomas Clines and Richard Armitage disbursed, from the secret, Laotian-based, Vang Pao opium fund, vastly more money than was required to finance even the highly intensified Phoenix Project in Vietnam. The money in excess of that used in Vietnam was secretly smuggled out of Vietnam in large suitcases, by Richard Secord and Thomas Clines and carried into Australia, where it was deposited in a secret, personal bank account (privately accessible to Theodore Shackley, Thomas Clines and Richard Secord). During this same period of time between 1973 and 1975, Theodore Shackley and Thomas Clines caused thousands of tons of US weapons, ammunition, and explosives to be secretly taken from Vietnam and stored at a secret ‘cache’ hidden inside Thailand.
From 1975 to 1977, Armitage held this post in Thailand. However, he did not perform the duties of this office. Instead, Armitage continued to function as the ‘bursar’ for Theodore Shackley’s ‘Secret Team,’ seeing to it that secret Vang Pao opium funds were conducted from Laos, through Armitage in Thailand to both Tehran and the secret Shackley bank account in Australia at the Nugen-Hand Bank.
From 1977 until 1979, Armitage remained in Bangkok opening and operating a business named The Far East Trading Company. This company had offices only in Bangkok and in Washington, D.C. This company was, in fact, from 1977 to 1979, merely a ‘front’ for Armitage’s secret operations conducting Vang Pao opium money out of Southeast Asia to Tehran and the Nugen-Hand Bank in Australia to fund the ultra right-wing, private anti-communist ‘anti-terrorist’ assassination program and ‘unconventional warfare’ operation of Theodore Shackley’s and Thomas Cline’s ‘Secret Team.’
Between 1976 and 1979, Shackley, Clines, Secord, Hakim, Wilson, and Armitage set up several corporations and subsidiaries around the world through which to conceal the operations of the ‘Secret Team.’ Many of these corporations were set up in Switzerland. Among these was Lake Resources, Inc…Through these corporations, members of Theodore Shackley’s ‘Secret Team’ laundered hundreds of millions of dollars of secret Vang Pao opium money, pilfered Foreign Military Sales proceeds between 1976 and 1979.”
According to testimony from former Congressman Charlie Wilson (from Charlie Wilson’s War, by George Crile), Ed Wilson, of the Secret Team went with him to Nicaragua, to meet with President Somoza, seeking Soviet-style weapons to ship to the Mujahedeen. Congressman Wilson heard “retired” CIA dirty tricks officer Ed Wilson offer the General an army of one-thousand “retired” agents for $100,000 each, to take care of their Sandinista problem. The claim that these agents were rogues, acting for pure profit on their own, does not hold water when you consider that wherever their handiwork has shown-up around the world over the past thirty years it has always been while performing duties in service of American foreign policy.
From the Lost Chapter:
“Funds belonging to IBC were at various times transferred directly or through another Hiller/Gomez corporation called Intel-Cooperation to Richard Secord’s Swiss bank account 1n the name of Lake Resources, Inc.”
After Vietnam, Richard Secord and the rest of the “Secret Team” spread their network throughout Southeast Asia. After Contragate, this network multiplied in this region as well as in the Americas:
“The recent ‘color revolutions’ in Georgia, Ukraine, and Kyrgyzstan and the widespread suspicion that U.S. groups such as the National Democratic Institute (NDI), the International Republican Institute (IRI), Freedom House [led by former CIA head James Woolsley, of Project for New American Century fame] and the Open Society Institute [created in 1993 by investor George Soros] played a key behind-the-scenes role in fomenting these upheavals have clearly helped trigger the backlash.”
“In one former Soviet Republic, Azerbaijan, Arab Afghan jihadis clearly assisted this effort of U.S. oil companies to penetrate the region. In 1991, Richard Secord, Heinie Aderholt, and Ed Dearborn, three veterans of U.S. operations in Laos, and later of Oliver North’s operations with the Contras, turned up in Baku under the cover of an oil company, MEGA Oil. This was at a time when the first Bush administration had expressed its support for an oil pipeline stretching from Azerbaijan across the Caucasus to Turkey… Secord explains in his memoir how Aderholt and himself were occasionally seconded to the CIA as CIA detailees. Secord describes his own service as a CIA detailee with Air America in first Vietnam and then Laos, in cooperation with the CIA Station Chief Theodore Shackley… Secord later worked with Oliver North to supply arms and materiel to the Contras in Honduras, and also developed a small air force for them, using many former Air America pilots… As MEGA operatives in Azerbaijan, Secord, Aderholt, Dearborn, and their men engaged in military training, passed ‘brown bags filled with cash’ to members of the government, and above all set up an airline on the model of Air America which soon was picking up hundreds of mujahedin mercenaries in Afghanistan… .) Meanwhile, Hekmatyar, who at the time was still allied with bin Laden, was “observed recruiting Afghan mercenaries [i.e. Arab Afghans] to fight in Azerbaijan against Armenia and its Russian allies.’ At this time, heroin flooded from Afghanistan through Baku into Chechnya, Russia, and even North America… . ‘Over the course of the next two years, [MEGA Oil] procured thousands of dollars worth of weapons and recruited at least two thousand Afghan mercenaries for Azerbaijan – the first mujahedin to fight on the territory of the former Communist Bloc’.. A fourth operative in MEGA Oil, Gary Best, was also a veteran of North’s Contra support effort… It was also a time when Congress, under pressure from Armenian voters, had banned all military aid to Azerbaijan (under Section 907 of the Freedom Support Act)…”
Washington Post article did belatedly note that a group of American men who wore “big cowboy hats and big cowboy boots” had arrived in Azerbaijan as military trainers for its army, followed in 1993 by “more than 1,000 guerrilla fighters from Afghanistan’s radical prime minister, Gulbuddin Hekmatyar.” (Washington Post, 4/21/94) Richard Secord was allegedly attempting also to sell Israeli arms, with the assistance of Israeli agent David Kimche, another associate of Oliver North.” – Peter Dale Scott, Drugs, Oil, and War.
From these exploits in the Caspian Sea region, the “Secret Team” transported Hekmatyr’s troops and thousands of other Afghan veterans, as well as Iranian militias to places like Albania, Bosnia and Croatia. (See: “Bill Clinton: First Neocon President”)
“Soon after the liberation of Kabul, their man, Hezb-i-Islami leader Gulbuddin Hekmatyar
(long the main recipient of CIA weaponry) started the Afghan civil war, by firing rockets at Kabul.’
Clinton began a covert operation with Saudi Arabia, Iran and Pakistan, to send money and arms to Bosnia-Herzegovina. According to a lengthy Congressional report by the Republican Party Committee, http://www.srpska-mreza.com/Bosnia/bodansky2.html published in 1997 (while the Republicans were pre-occupied with learning about the president’s sexual habits), the Clinton administration ‘helped turn Bosnia into a militant Islamic base,’ by recruiting and arming thousands of Mujahideen through the ‘Militant Islamic Network’ (a.k.a. ‘al Qaida’). The report then went on to claim administration ‘…complicity in the delivery of weapons from Iran to the Muslim government in Sarajevo.., involvement with the Islamic network’s arms pipeline… (and using Muslim ‘charity’ groups who were) connected with such fixtures of the Islamic terror network as Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman (the convicted mastermind behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombing) and Osama Bin Laden…” [Washington Post, 9/22/96]
The result was an illegal “Iran-Contra style operation” in Albania which utilized Iranian militants and elements of Al Qaida (under the direct command of Al Qaida “number two” Ayman al-Zawahiri), to smuggle weapons and mujahedeen though Croatia into Bosnia. This secret program was later duplicated with the Kosovo Liberation Army, and again in nearby Macedonia, as well as in Chechnya.
According to author and researcher Yossef Bodansky
“In Bosnia, the Islamists staged attacks upon fellow Muslims in order to elicit international sympathy and thus intervention. The outcomes of these actions effectively converted NATO into the Islamists’ air force, the Western press into their propaganda organs, and American troops into their proxy forces.”
The Saudis provided most of the “legitimate” money for the covert program in Yugoslavia (just as they had matched all US funds to the original Mujahedeen), the Iranians supplied the arms, and the Pakistan Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) brought the “Afghan-Arab” veterans to the fight. The ISI is widely known as a surrogate of the CIA,
Today, we face the results of all of these years of the CIA’s program to train an Islamic army to wage war against America and her allies. This intelligence operation to serve the elitist plan for forcing a global dictatorship on the people of the earth is running full throttle at this time, as we are hurried along to our demise. This low intensity conflict is raging in Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine, Iran, and Somalia, everywhere that American boys are killing and dieing for the enterprise.
Bush has breathed new life into the American/Saudi/Pakistani Islamist network as the foundation for his covert war against Iran. (See: “Preparing the Battlefield,” Seymour Hersh) http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2008/07/07/080707fa_fact_hersh He is using Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan as bases of operation, from which to train and launch trained Sunni terrorists into Iran, using both military and CIA resources. This means that the Secret Team is probably training and transporting Islamic mercenaries all over Pakistan and the Caucasus region, just as they were probably the primary contractors for the movement of jihadis into Serbian territory. This is the direction Bush’s war against Iran will likely take. This is the nature of the conflict called for in the “Iran War Resolution, H. CON. RES. 362:
“Expressing the sense of Congress regarding the threat posed to international peace, stability in the Middle East, and the vital national security interests of the United States by Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons and regional hegemony, and for other purposes…”
“Demands that the President initiate an international effort to…prohibiting the export to Iran of all refined petroleum products; imposing stringent inspection requirements on all persons, vehicles, ships, planes, trains, and cargo entering or departing Iran; and prohibiting the international movement of all Iranian officials not involved in negotiating the suspension of Iran’s nuclear program.”
This resolution is nothing less than a declaration of war against Iran. If we the People are to have any chance at all of stopping this final escalation of the elitist plans for world conquest, by unleashing their cherished world war, then it will be through the use of verifiable evidence like the “Lost Chapter.” The evidence that this missing piece of the puzzle brings into the picture clarifies our understanding of one of the black roots of the criminal conspiracy between the corporate elitists and the CIA and its many subsidiary foreign intelligence agencies, that is purposely destroying this Nation for the clear purpose of forcing us to submit to an immoral world government.
