1. Synarchy: Multiple joint rule or authority, or sovereignty. The terms is related to, Synchronism, which defines multiple events unfolding simultaneously, or actions occurring at the time, usually by intent.

Synarchism, thus becomes the idea of a rule by multiplicity, expressed in what may be termed a multipolar 'order' which is inherently chaotic with irrational authority, exercising power with diverse objectives, pursued simultaneously.

Rolf Witzche

2. Synarchy is an intellectual movement, which has its origin in the mysticism of Joseph Alexandre Saint Yves d'Alveydre (1842-1909).

Under the influence of the esoterics of Claude de Saint Saint-Martin, synarchy finds large resonance in the 1920's - particularly in the universities in France. The synarchists see themselves as a conspiratorial, exclusive circle of "inaugurated brothers" (Coll�e de Grands Initi�), which wants to care for the promotion of the technical authority of its members and to bring them into the highest political positions. more 

"In the USA, neo-conservative think tanks - dedicated to changing the way the world views itself, through studies on military, cultural, religious and economic issues - have been successfully promoting a mentality based on the justification of inequality and on total freedom of enterprise, as opposed to all other human rights.

Not all think tanks of the new international right, however, come from the US. One of them, for example, comes from Italy. It is called CESNUR, the "Centre for the Study of New Religions".

It puts itself across as a non denominational and non partisan study centre, whereas actually it is a militant organization, which draws its inspiration from a self-styled "counter-revolutionary" ideology.

Although run by Catholic fundamentalists, CESNUR promotes a kind of ecumenism among transnational enterprises which preach global free market; as we can see, CESNUR brings together admirers of the Inquisition and supporters of Scientology, Catholic extremists and esoteric Freemasons."

Those republics that could not pass muster with the U.S. lost federal aid and could not secure loans from the U.S. controlled International Monetary Fund. As a result, disparities in wealth and privilege began to emerge, and shortly thereafter, the country lapsed into a horrendous civil war. How to defeat Bushism in the U.S. in 2004 Joseph P. Diaferia

Whatever happened to those Nazis in South America?
Answer: They helped create Corporatist Neo-liberalism

"Operation paperclip" was so named when the satanic king makers and power brokers who presently run our world, and are destroying it, brought Nazi war criminals to the US at the end of WWII, to continue their "scientific" projects here. They placed paperclips on the files, so their clerks could type clean dossiers for President Truman's review.

From their work came the HIV virus, Aspartame, and the "Schools of the Americas", etc.

COINTELPRO: The Untold American Story

"Throughout its history, the Klan has had a contradictory relationship with the national government: as a defender of white privilege and the patriarchal status quo, and as an implicit threat, however provisional, to federal power. Depending on political conditions in society as a whole, vigilante terror can be supplemental to official violence, or kept on the proverbial shortleash. As a surrogate army in the field of terror against official enemies, the Klan enjoys wide latitude. But when it moves into an oppositional mode and attacks key institutions of national power, Klan paramilitarism - but not its overt white supremacist ideology - is treated as an imminent threat to the social order, suppressed, but never destroyed, unlike other COINTELPRO target groups. These roles are not mutually exclusive. As anti-racist researcher Michael Novick warns: "The KKK and its successor and fraternal organizations are deeply rooted in the actual white supremacist power relations of US society. They exist as a supplement to the armed power of the state, available to be used when the rulers and the state find it necessary."

"Tens of thousands of members of a racist legion operate openly in every corner of the nation ? men, women, juveniles, extended families, cells, gangs, churches, clans, militias, border armies, all engaged in what they consider to be a war to the death against non-white America."

Teaching Torture: Congress Quietly Keeps School of the Americas Alive


A relic of the Cold War, the SOA was originally set up to train military, police and intelligence officers of U.S. allies south of the border in the fight against insurgencies Washington labeled "Communist." In reality, the SOA's graduates have been the shock troops of political repression, propping up a string of dictatorial and repressive regimes favored by the Pentagon.

The interrogation manuals long used at the SOA were made public in May by the National Security Archive, an independent research group, and posted on its Web site after they were declassified following Freedom of Information Act requests by, among others, the Baltimore Sun. In releasing the manuals, the NSA noted that they "describe 'coercive techniques' such as those used to mistreat the detainees at Abu Ghraib."

The Abu Ghraib torture techniques have been field-tested by SOA graduates - seven of the U.S. Army interrogation manuals that were translated into Spanish, used at the SOA's trainings and distributed to our allies, offered instruction on torture, beatings and assassination. As Dr. Miles Schuman, a physician with the Canadian Centre for Victims of Torture who has documented torture cases and counseled their victims, graphically wrote in the May 14 Toronto Globe and Mail under the headline "Abu Ghraib: The Rule, Not the Exception":

"The black hood covering the faces of naked prisoners in Abu Ghraib was known as la capuchi in Guatemalan and Salvadoran torture chambers. The metal bed frame to which the naked and hooded detainee was bound in a crucifix position in Abu Ghraib was la cama, named for a former Chilean prisoner who survived the U.S.-installed regime of General Augusto Pinochet. In her case, electrodes were attached to her arms, legs and genitalia, just as they were attached to the Iraqi detainee poised on a box, threatened with electrocution if he fell off. The Iraqi man bound naked on the ground with a leash attached to his neck, held by a smiling young American recruit, reminds me of the son of peasant organizers who recounted his agonizing torture at the hands of the Tonton Macoutes, U.S.-backed dictator John-Claude (Baby Doc) Duvalier's right-hand thugs, in Port-au-Prince in 1984. The very act of photographing those tortured in Abu Ghraib to humiliate and silence parallels the experience of an American missionary, Sister Diana Ortiz," who was tortured and gang-raped repeatedly under supervision by an American in 1989, according to her testimony before the Congressional Human Rights Caucus.

The long history of torture by U.S.-trained thugs in Latin and Central America under the command of SOA graduates has also been capaciously documented by human-rights organizations like Amnesty International (in its 2002 report titled "Unmatched Power, Unmet Principles") and in books like A.J. Langguth's Hidden Terrors, William Blum's Rogue State and Lawrence Weschler's A Miracle, a Universe. In virtually every report on human-rights abuses from Latin America, SOA graduates are prominent. A U.N. Truth Commission report said that over two-thirds of the Salvadoran officers it cites for abuses are SOA graduates. Forty percent of the Cabinet members under three sanguinary Guatemalan dictatorships were SOA graduates. And the list goes on . . .

In 2000, the Pentagon engaged in a smoke-screen attempt to give the SOA a face-lift by changing its name to the Western Hemispheric Institute for Security Cooperation (WHINSEC) as part of a claimed "reform" program. But, as the late GOP Senator Paul Coverdale of Georgia (where SOA-WHINSEC is located) said at the time, the changes to the school were "basically cosmetic."

The lobbying campaign to close SOA-WHINSEC has been led by School of the Americas Watch, founded by religious activists after the 1990s murder of four U.S. nuns by Salvadoran death squads under command of one of SOA's most infamous graduates, Colonel Roberto D'Aubuisson. Lest you think that the school's links to atrocities are all in the distant past, SOA Watch has documented a raft of recent scandals postdating the Pentagon's chimerical "reform." Here are just a few of them:

In June 2001, Colonel Byron Lima Estrada, an SOA grad who was head of Guatemala's bloody D-2 intelligence unit, was convicted of Guatemalan Bishop Gerardi's murder by bludgeoning - two days after the bishop released a report concluding that the army was responsible for a majority of the 200,000 killed in his country's civil war.

In April 2002, two SOA graduates (Army Commander in Chief Efrain Vasquez and General Ramirez Poveda) helped lead a failed coup in Venezuela. The notorious Otto Reich, a failed Bush-administration appointee who sat on the renamed school's Board of Visitors, met with the generals in the months preceding the coup.

In June 2002, Colombian police arrested SOA graduate John Fredy Jimenez for the murder of Archbishop Isaias Duarte in March of that year.

In 2002, Bolivian Captain Filiman Rodriguez took a 49-week officer-training course at WHINSEC. But in 1999, he'd been found responsible for the kidnapping and torture of Waldo Albarracin, then director of the Popular Assembly for Human Rights, by a commission of the Bolivian Chamber of Deputies.

In 2003, Salvadoran Colonel Francisco del Cid Diaz was a student at WHINSEC. But the colonel commanded a unit that shot 16 residents from the Los Hojas cooperative of the Asociacion Nacional de Ind�enas and threw their bodies into the river in 1983. In 1992, the OAS Inter-American Commission on Human Rights recommended prosecution of Col. Cid Diaz for the murders.

The 'Nutso's' plan for Cuba? : Operation Northwoods

"Operation Northwoods was a plan by the highest US military authorities to create a series of incidents involving loss of American and Cuban exile lives through the actions of phony Cubans in order to persuade the US public to go to war against Cuba. The document detailing this plan were obtained from Defense Seceretary McNamara's file after his death and were first published in Australia by Jon Elliston (Psy War on Cuba: The Declassified History of US Anti-Castro Propaganda, Ocean Press, 1999) with no reaction at all from the US. They were used again by ABC News journalist James Bamford in his history of the NSA (Body of Secrets, Doubleday, 2001), causing some minor notice among historians."

(Note: The courses of action which follow are a preliminary submission suitable only for planning purposes: They are arranged neither chronologically nor in ascending order. Together with similar inputs from other agencies, they are intended to provide a point of departure for the development of a single, integrated, time-phased plan. Such a plan would permit the evaluation of individual projects within the context of cumulative, correlated actions designed to lead inexorably to the objective of adequate justification for US military intervention in Cuba).

1. Since it would seem desirable to use legitimate provocation as the basis for US military intervention in Cuba a cover and deception plan, to include requisite preliminary actions such as has been developed in response to Task 33 c, could be executed as an initial effort to provoke Cuban reactions. Harassment plus deceptive actions to convince the Cubans of imminent invasion would be emphasized. Our military posture throughout execution of the plan will allow a rapid change from exercise to intervention if Cuban response justifies.

2. A series of well coordinated incidents will be planned to take place in and around Guantanamo to give genuine appearance of being done by hostile Cuban forces.


8. It is possible to create an incident which will demonstrate convincingly that a Cuban aircraft has attacked and shot down a chartered civil airliner en route from the United States to Jamaica, Guatemala, Panama or Venezuela. The destination would be chosen only to cause the flight plan route to cross Cuba. The passengers could be a group of college students off on a holiday or any grouping of persons with a common interest to support chartering a non-scheduled flight.

a. An aircraft at Eglin AFB would be painted and numbered as an exact duplicate for a civil registered aircraft belonging to a CIA proprietary organization in the Miami area. At a designated time the duplicate would be substituted for the actual civil aircraft and would be loaded with the selected passengers, all boarded under carefully prepared aliases. The actual registered aircraft would be converted to a drone.

b. Take off times of the drone aircraft and the actual aircraft will be scheduled, to allow a rendezvous south of Florida. From the rendezvous point the passenger-carrying aircraft will descend to minimum altitude and go directly into an auxiliary field at Eglin AFB where arrangements will have been made to evacuate the passengers and return the aircraft to its original status. The drone aircraft meanwhile will continue to fly the filed flight plan. When over Cuba the drone will being transmitting on the international distress frequency a "MAY DAY" message stating he is under attack by Cuban MIG aircraft. The transmission will be interrupted by destruction of the aircraft which will be triggered by radio signal. This will allow ICAO radio stations in the Western Hemisphere to tell the US what has happened to the aircraft instead of the US trying to " sell" the incident.

Decades of attacks against the island of Cuba

The hypocrisy is sickening. As the United States pursues its War Against Terror, holding suspects in secret jails and incarcerating hundreds at the illegally-occupied naval base at Guantánamo Bay, it accuses Cuba of being a "state sponsor of terror."

The ridiculousness of this claim is made all the more poignant by the presence of known, convicted and self-confessed terrorists and murderers who are even today enjoying a happy life within U.S. borders. People like Orlando Bosch, one of the killers responsible for bombing an Air Cubana airliner in the 1970s, among many other criminal acts.

Bosch's former boss - and a CIA "asset" - is Luis Posada Carriles, who made headlines in the 1990s by admitting to New York Times reporters in an extensive interview that he was the mastermind behind a string of hotel bombings in Cuba, including one in 1997 that killed Fabio di Celmo, an Italian citizen and Canadian resident.

In April, 2005, Luis Posada showed up in Miami, seeking "asylum" in the United States. He had entered the country illegally, after being unjustly pardoned by the outgoing president of Panama, where he had been sent to prison for conspiring to blow up a university hall where Cuban President Fidel Castro was to speak during a state visit. Posada's co-conspirators had previously been warmly welcomed in Miami upon their release.

The United States' National Public Radio recently interviewed New York Times' reporter, Ann Louise Bardach, to whom Posada admitted his role in terrorist acts Listen to the interview (RealAudio).

Here we have a man who admitted to murder and terrorism... now living among his peers in the heartland of anti-Cuba terrorists. This is an appropriate moment to recall the words of U.S. President Bush on the occasion of the signing of an anti-terrorism bill:

"If anybody harbors a terrorist, they're a terrorist. If they fund a terrorist, they're a terrorist. If they house terrorists, they're terrorists. I mean, I can't make it any more clear to other nations around the world."

WILL U.N. ASK FOR EXTRADITION?: Shocking Evidence Revealed

The evidence pointing to President Bush's role in the terrorist bombing of a Cuban airliner grows stronger with new revelations. Will the UN Security Council demand his extradition to Cuba or the World Court, as Bush and the UN have done in the case of Libyan suspects in a similar crime?

By Warren Hough Exclusive to The Spotlight

Washington, DC, 6/12/92 -- Long-suppressed records have turned up "shattering" new evidence of the role played by President George Bush in the midair bombing of a Cuban airliner and in its subsequent cover-up, Latin American officials conducting a "preliminary review" of the tragic incident have told the UN Security Council.

The secret files reportedly confirm that in mid-1976, while serving as CIA chief, Bush was in "overall command" of a botched sabotage operation that ended in the crash of a Cuban passenger jet, killing all 73 aboard, The SPOTLIGHT has learned from diplomatic sources close to the investigation.

A CIA agent identified as Luis Posada was arrested by Venezuelan authorities shortly after the Cuban plane exploded in midair during its takeoff from a Caribbean stopover, these sources say. Posada, a member of a sizable CIA contingent conducting covert operations from Venezuelan bases at the time, was charged with having smuggled an explosive device aboard the flight, and held for trial.

Bush, anxious to disclaim all responsibility for such an atrocious terrorist outrage, ordered a "no-holds-barred" cover-up of the crime, the record suggests.

"In order to take the heat off Posada, the CIA targeted another suspect, Dr. Orlando Bosch, a militant Cuban exile activist who advocated `armed action' against the Castro dictatorship," recounted Felipe Rivero, the popular Miami broadcaster who is The SPOTLIGHT's correspondent in the region."

Venezuela's secret police, known after its Spanish initials as DISIP, maintained close relations with the CIA and followed its lead. Bosch was imprisoned and charged with complicity in the bombing in Venezuela.


The next move in the cover-up reportedly orchestrated by Bush was to "recover" Posada, these sources day. In a well-organized and lavishly financed jailbreak, the alleged aerial bomber was spirited from Venezuela to Panama, where the CIA issued him a new set of identity documents under the name of Ramon Medina, a Guatemalan businessman.

In the concluding move of the cover-up, Posada, now known as "Medina," was handed over to Felix Rodriguez, a senior CIA field agent with whom Bush had a personal working relationship, the record shows. Rodriguez gave Posada a series of covert jobs with CIA teams stationed in Central America, largely in order to protect him and "keep him happy," these sources related.

"I, for my part, spent 11 years in various maximum security Venezuelan prisons," Bosch told a SPOTLIGHT reporter during a recent telephone interview. "During those years, I was put on trial four times for that airplane bombing. My case was heard by military, civilian and appellate courts. I was found innocent each time. But after each acquittal, the CIA came up with new `suggestions' about my guilt."


Finally the Venezuelan government told Washington it could no longer hold Bosch. Pale and in frail health, the falsely accused "terrorist" was flown back to Miami. "Here I could hope for no acquittal," recounted Bosch. "At the airport, immigration officials threw me into chains. I was held in solitary confinement for 29 months."

Finally granted a provisional release after leading Cuban-American Republicans pressed his cause without letup, Bosch now lives in seclusion near Miami. "My status is that of a `deportable' alien," he told The SPOTLIGHT. "If I engage in any political activity, or even if I talk too much, I can be tossed back into jail. I am in no position to comment on controversial questions -- not even in my own cause."

Living under the assumed name and a small CIA paycheck in Central America also proved difficult for Posada, SPOTLIGHT correspondent Rivero reports. "A couple of years ago, two men walked up to Posada in a Guatemalan restaurant and shot him five times," Rivero related. "He survived the shooting by a sheer miracle. Badly injured -- he lives largely on liquefied food and walks with a crutch, I hear -- he has vanished into the `protective custody' of the CIA."

The reason for Posada's attempted assassination is known, however. He "drank a bit and began to talk too much," U.N. sources said. "The CIA needed an airtight cover-up of that airline bombing. When Posada turned talkative, his usefulness to Bush was at an end -- and, but for an iron physique and that miraculous survival, he would have been, too."

Security Council, having assumed jurisdiction over such international terrorist crimes when it clamped harsh sanctions on Libya last April, faces a tougher challenge: How to deal with a case of aerial mass murder in which the principal suspect happens to be THE INCUMBENT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. - textfiles.com/

On that date, on a New York street, Pedro Remón, a member of Omega 7, murdered Félix García Rodríguez, a Cuban diplomatic at the United Nations. Garcia was driving along Queens Boulevard when he stopped at the lights at the corner of 55th Street. A car pulled up alongside, and he was shot with a MAC 10 machine gun.

No other U.N. diplomat had ever been assassinated before. Pedro Remón was never punished for that crime and has continued his terrorist career. Accused of plotting to kill Fidel Castro, he is currently detained in Panama with Luis Posada Carriles, and could soon be returning, unpunished, home to Florida. SOME FACTS, Relating to Terrorism against Cuba

Two of the most dangerous anti-Cuba terrorists, Luis Posada Carriles,and Pedro Remón, are in Miami after their release from Panamanian prison by the right-wing Panamanian president, Mireya Moscoso, August 2004

US urged to find Cuban suspect

May 10, 2005 - The Bush administration was under pressure yesterday to track down a Cuban exile and former CIA agent implicated in a series of terrorist attacks.

In the next few days, the Venezuelan government is due to demand the extradition of Luis Posada Carriles in connection with the bombing of a Cuban airliner in 1976, in which 73 people died. He is said to be hiding in Florida. Mr Posada, 77, has also admitted carrying out attacks on Cuban tourist sites, including one in 1997 in which an Italian was killed. He was convicted in Panama over a 2000 plot to assassinate Fidel Castro. Since being pardoned last year by the former Panamanian president Mireya Moscoso, Mr Posada has travelled around Central America in search of a haven and according to his lawyer, Eduardo Soto, slipped into the US illegally across the Mexican border in March.

Mr Soto said he intended to seek political asylum on the strength of his work for the CIA in its efforts to oust President Castro in the 1960s.

"This is a test of George Bush's true colours on fighting terrorism, and it also opens up a huge can of worms on the CIA's involvement in anti-Castro violence in the 70s," said Peter Kornbluh at the National Security Archive, an independent watchdog group.

The archive has acquired a 1976 FBI document tying Mr Posada to the plot to down the Cuban airliner.

The document places Mr Posada at meetings at a Caracas hotel where the bombing of the Cubana Airlines DC-8 was planned.

At one meeting, the document said: "There was some disagreement as to who would take part in the various phases of the operation and who would claim credit for the bombing."

The Bush administration initially responded to news of Mr Posada's arrival with silence, but under pressure to comment, Roger Noriega, the top state department official for Latin America, suggested last week that the exile would have a hard time securing political asylum.

Alpha 66

FROM its offices at 1714 W. Flagler St, in Miami, the Cuban-American terrorist group Alpha 66 continues launching its calls to terror. In an anti-Cuban magazine, its" new chief and CIA agent, Ernesto Díaz Rodríguez, has just confirmed his intention to maintain "a combat strategy for a radical change" in Cuba.

"We are expanding our offices in Miami and at our Rumba Sur military training camp," confirmed Díaz, who was detained in Cuba in 1968 for his participation in one of Alpha 66"s terrorist operations.

Since the early 90"s, the group has been training terrorists at the camp, located on 40 SW Street and 172nd Avenue in Miami. On several occasions, ex-officers from the U.S. Marine Infantry Corps have participated in training activities at this location.

The new "leader" of the mercenary group intends to set up cells on the island, while "more and more Cubans are joining Alpha" in Florida.

"They are people in good physical shape ready to undertake armed struggle," he affirmed in that same interview given to a Californian magazine.

Díaz succeeded Andres Nazario Sargent, in October, following the latter"s death. Nazario Sargent had been chief of Alpha 66 since its founding in 1962.

He created the paramilitary group with several other mercenaries within the framework of the so-called "autonomous operations" led by the CIA from its Miami JM-WAVE base.

Miami police intelligence documents noted then that the group was "one of the most dangerous and most active organizations" in Miami.

Its criminal activities included several plotted attempts on the life of the president of Cuba; attacks on fishing vessels and threats against Cuban representatives in Mexico, United States, Ecuador, Brazil, Canada and Puerto Rico. granma.cu/

Who are the Miami 5?

They are five Cubans who were trying to stop the ultra-right terrorist groups in Miami from carrying out violent actions against the people of Cuba. Since 1959, these organizations have conducted bombings, assassinations and other sabotage, killing hundreds of innocent Cuban civilians. Groups like Alpha 66, Omega 7, Brothers to the Rescue, and Cuban American National Foundation have terrorized the Cuban people for years with impunity.

The Cuban people have been targets of U.S. policy, including a 43-year economic blockade designed to punish a whole people who have chosen a different road for building their society. They have been victims of terror attacks by the Miami-based mafia, many of whom came from the wealthy class that left Cuba after the popular overthrow of dictator Fulgencio Batista. Others of the ultra-right in Miami were police thugs for the Batista regime.

Gerardo Hernández, Antonio Guerrero, Ramón Labañino, René González and Fernando González, acting in defense of their people, were living in Miami, monitoring these terrorist groups to prevent future violence.

But because the U.S. government - through the CIA - has played the principal role in funding, training and arming the ultra-right Miami mafia, the FBI targeted the five Cubans instead of arresting the terrorists.

This is the only reason that the five Cubans are in prison. They were framed up in a political witchhunt and railroaded by the U.S. in a 7-month trial in Miami, where it was impossible for them to have an impartial and fair trial.

Falsely charged with espionage on the U.S., in reality, the five brothers' mission was to follow the activities of the right-wing to prevent harm to innocent people. After their arrest by the FBI in September 1998, they were convicted June 8, 2001 and sentenced December 2001.

“You can now see the origins of terrorism and who created it,” said Fidel Castro as he detailed the criminal record of renowned international terrorist Luis Posada Carriles, who has requested political asylum in the United States. The Cuban leader also outlined the crimes of several of Posada’s henchmen with close links to the Bush administration.

During his appearance on Cuban radio and television, President Castro exchanged views on the issue with the president of the Cuban parliament Ricardo Alarcon and Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roque.

Referring to the role played by Posada Carriles, Guillermo Novo Sampoll and Pedro Jimenez Escobedo in the assassination of Cuban diplomat Felix Garcia in New York and former Chilean Foreign Minister Orlando Letelier, Fidel Castro accused US circles of power of being accomplices of the terrorists.

The Cuban American National Foundation was closely linked to Posada Carriles and we are sure that US authorities were well aware of that fact, said the Cuban president in indignation as he commented on an article published by the New York Times on Monday.

Fidel said the right wing foundation was created, financed and sustained by the US government in its fight against the Cuban Revolution.

The assassination of diplomat Felix Garcia took place September 11, 1981, said Ricardo Alarcon in a direct reference to the alliance of the anti-Cuba organizations with the fascist dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet, who overthrew the democratically elected Chilean government of Salvador Allende on September 11, 1973.

The Cuban president said that 20 years after those events took place we can observe the responsibility of those who used such methods and created conditions for the 9/11 attacks on the twin towers in New York, which claimed the lives of 3,000 US citizens.

They were the same ones who trained Posada Carriles and Orlando Bosch, said Fidel Castro who called a protest rally next Tuesday in front of the US Interests Section in Havana to demand justice and an end to impunity on such crimes.

We have to demand that justice be done and that Posada Carriles and his accomplices be arrested and punished for their crimes, insisted Fidel Castro. He ridiculed the Bush administration for saying its does not know where the terrorist is hiding out when ample information confirms his presence in the US.

By playing a leading role against terrorism and for justice we can strive to keep things from deteriorating into the horrible developments occurring in Iraq, with the widespread torture and murder, said Fidel Castro. It is a struggle for life, he added. - source

Connections of CANF's treasurer

THE Cuban American National Foundation is well-represented on the GOP's list of presidential electors from Florida by CANF's treasurer, Feliciano M. Foyo, who happens to be a good friend of Florida Governor Jeb Bush. Foyo has another friend named Luis Posada Carriles, one of the most notorious terrorists among Cuban expatriates. In an autobiography published in Honduras in 1994, Posada names Feliciano Foyo as one of his financial backers. What does it mean to be one of Posada's financiers?


In June 1976, while George H. W. Bush (the elder) was head of the CIA, a CIA operative, Cuban expatriate Orlando Bosch, founded and led the Commanders of United Revolutionary Organizations (CORU). Posada was one of those "commanders." As revealed later in FBI and CIA documents, CORU was soon involved in more than 50 bombings and, quite likely, political assassinations. Venezuelans and U.S. authorities reported that a network of terrorists carried out a "vast" number of attacks in seven countries against Cuba and against countries and individuals considered friendly to Cuba. This reign of terror culminated in October 1976 when a Cubana passenger plane was blown up after it took off from Barbados headed for Cuba, killing all 73 people aboard, including 57 Cubans.

With overwhelming evidence against them, Posada, Bosch and two Venezuelans were arrested and held in Venezuela. Military courts in Venezuela acquitted them, not a surprising development since the CIA in 1967 had transferred Posada to Venezuela, using him as a leader of terrorist activities against Cuba in Latin America and the Caribbean. In the Interior Ministry, he ran the Intelligence and Prevention Services Division (DISIP), which persecuted, interrogated and tortured Venezuelan citizens. Awaiting retrial, in 1985 Posada walked out of the prison.

According to Posada himself, his guards were bribed with money from Miami. One of the couriers of such financing was Gaspar Jiménez Escobedo, one of the terrorists now held in Panama. From Venezuela, Cuban expatriate Félix Rodríguez, another notorious terrorist, took Posada to El Salvador where Rodríguez was working with Col. Oliver North in supplying Contras against the Sandinistas government of Nicaragua. The exposure of that operation led to the Iran-Contra hearings of 1987. At those hearings before Congress, Rodríguez was asked about "Ramón Medina." He replied that Medina was an alias in El Salvador for Posada, a "good friend of mine," an "honorable man." He testified that he brought Posada to El Salvador from Venezuela, claiming that Posada "deserved to be free." Not another question was asked about Posada. Instead Rodríguez was complimented on his role by Rep. Bill McCollum (R-Fl), one of his questioners. Rep. Peter Rodino (D-NJ) also told him that we all appreciate his fighting against communism.

Two years later, in a speech on the Senate floor, Senator Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) said the American people "deserve a full accounting of [then Vice President] Bush and the vice president's office and its knowledge of Luis Posada's role in the secret contra supply operation." In his testimony before Congress, Rodríguez had bragged about meeting with Vice President Bush (he showed Bush a picture of himself with captive Che Guevara in the hours before Che was executed). Senator Harkin wondered "why Bush never bothered to use his good offices to investigate charges of Posada's links with the supply operation and Félix Rodríguez even after the press reported them in late 1986."

After El Salvador, Posada spent time in terrorist activities in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. Money from Miami, said Posada, was used to finance the 1997 bombings aimed at the tourist industry in Havana-bombings that killed an Italian tourist, Fabio di Celmo, and injured several people. Posada admitted paying Salvadorans to go to Cuba to plant those bombs. After Posada and three of his cohorts were detained in Panama, Justino di Celmo, father of the dead tourist, appeared on Cuban television to appeal to Panamanian President Mireya Moscoso not to release Luis Posada. The families of the 57 Cubans killed in the 1976 explosion of the passenger jet are pleading for justice. Time will tell if Posada's financiers can pay his way out of this one.

Carriles was on $300 a month terror payroll


Luis Posada Carriles had a long relationship with the CIA. In February 1961, he joined the CIA's Brigade 2506 to invade Cuba, although the ship to which he was assigned never landed at the Bay of Pigs. While in the U.S. military between 1963 and 1965 the CIA recruited him and trained him in demolitions; he subsequently became a trainer of other paramilitary exile forces in the mid 1960s. CIA documents posted below reveal that he was terminated as an asset in July 1967, but then reinstated four months later and apparently remained an asset until 1974. The documents also show that he remained in contact with the Agency until June 1976, only three months before the plane bombing.

Ready for the kicker?

On November 22, 1963, Luis Posada Carrilles, Guillermo Novo, Orlando Bosch en Frank Sturgis, were all present in Dealey Plaza, the Dallas square were John F. Kennedy was assassinated. You don't believe it? Here's the proof .......

Is the role of Bin Laden similar to the Oswald patsy routine seen with The asassination of JFK - now we see Bin Laden is being hunted in Afghanistan as the foil against the REAL perpetrators of 911 - who are the same gang who brought us Team B, Iran / Contra, and The PNAC

Posada´s Trial a Farse

Havana, Jan 30 (Prensa Latina). The President of the People´s Power Assembly (Parliament), Ricardo Alarcon, considered the process against the terrorist Luis Posada Carriles in the USA a farse. During an interview to PL, Alarcon analyzed the US government´s role in the case of Posada who confessed being the author of the destruction of an airborne Cubana flight airplane in 1976 killing 73 persons and responsible for other bombings.

"He is a person who boasted about his terrorist actions in US media and when denying sending him to Venezuela, Washington is sabotaging the bilateral extradition treaty and the Montreal Agreement on illegal acts against civil aviation," said Alarcon. "President George W. Bush´s administration, by assuming this position, is also breaking the 1373 resolution of the UN Security Council, adopted by the USA. The resolution, approved in the wake of 9-11, prohibits any kind of political justification to deny the extradition of alleged terrorists. That is the only way to have that kind of crimes punished, but Washington is blocking the way to justice since it is protecting Posada, just as it did with Orlando Bosch, another terrorist, said the Parliament´s President."

Recent declassified official documents include CIA, FBI and State Department reports confirming Posada´s and Bosch´s participation in the Cubana flight attack. In the papers was found a message from the US ambassador in Caracas, Venezuela´s capital, a day after the crime, in which he stated the implication of both terrorists in the action and announced his intention of trying to get them out of Venezuela to avoid justice.

This is only explained by the deep relationship between the US government and terrorists and as it may be disclosed in a trial, the trial is avoided.

In his autobiography Posada tells about his crimes and and his origins in the CIA, where he was taught how to kill and trained, said Alarcon

According to Alarcon, Bush cannot act correctly in this case since he is stained by his collaboration and relations with assassins as part of his historical plans to attack Cuba. - plenglish

Flashback 1980 - Mujahadeen Help Destabilise the REDS

At the heart of America's struggle against Communism was the CIA plan to destabilise the Soviet Union through the spread of Islamic fanaticism across Muslim Central Asian Soviet republics. Between 1980 and 1989, CIA poured in some $6 billion (other estimates go as high as $20 billion) in arms, ammunition, recruiting, establishing an extensive madrassa network, training, feeding and arming of recruits. Saudi Arabia matched the US dollar-for-dollar. Wealthy Arabs poured in additional millions. Egypt and China also helped out.

In 1980, Prince Turki al-Faisal, the then head of Istakhbarat, Saudi Arabia's secret service, handpicked Osama bin Laden to provide engineering and organisational help to the fighting Mujahideen in Afghanistan. Osama was provided hundreds of millions with which he bought heavy construction equipment from Saudi Arabia destined for Afghanistan's guerrilla camps.


Al Queda are the remnants of a CIA gladio style infiltrated group... the madrassas were funded by the CIA through the Pakistani ISI [secret service] the Universities of the Americas...of which there are a few dotted through Pakistan, Kyrgistan, Tajikistan etc...are the first meeting point for mind control operations the UN & other international groups have helped to actually supply guerrilla literature and training etc to these 'schools'.

According to Abou El Fadl, during the Afghan war against the Soviets, madrassas emerged in Pakistan that were concerned less with scholarship than with war on infidels." Those were not madrassas. They were semi-military training camps, run by Pakistan army and ISI, and the literature provided by the US. It is wrong to equate those with the traditional madrassas.

According to Joe Stephens and David B. Ottaway ("The ABC's of Jihad in Afghanistan", The Washington Post, March 23, 2002), International patrons supplied arms and religious literature that flooded Pakistani madrassas. Special textbooks were published in Dari and Pashtu, designed by the Centre for Afghanistan Studies at the University of Nebraska-Omaha under a USAID grant in the early 1980s. Written by American Afghanistan experts and anti-Soviet Afghan educators, they aimed at promoting values of Mujahideen and military training among Afghans.

The same lessons are equally applicable to the all the invaders and occupiers. USAID paid the University of Nebraska U.S. $51 million from 1984 to 1994 to develop and design these textbooks, which were mostly printed in Pakistan. Over 13 million were distributed at Afghan refugee camps and Pakistani madrassas "where students learnt basic math by counting dead Russians and Kalashnikov rifles".[1] What else can the US expect from the kith and kin of the people they trained and "indoctrinated." Why blame madrassas? Whatever was true yesterday is true today as well. There can be no double standards of application for truth and justice.


Made in the USA

According to Ahmed Rashid, a correspondent for the Far Eastern Economic Review, in 1986 CIA chief William Casey committed CIA support to a long-standing ISI proposal to recruit from around the world to join the Afghan jihad. At least 100,000 Islamic militants flocked to Pakistan between 1982 and 1992 (some 60,000 attended fundamentalist schools in Pakistan without necessarily taking part in the fighting).

John Cooley, a former journalist with the US ABC television network and author of Unholy Wars: Afghanistan, America and International Terrorism, has revealed that Muslims recruited in the US for the mujaheddin were sent to Camp Peary, the CIA's spy training camp in Virginia, where young Afghans, Arabs from Egypt and Jordan, and even some African-American "black Muslims" were taught "sabotage skills".

The November 1, 1998, British Independent reported that one of those charged with the 1998 bombings of US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, Ali Mohammed, had trained "bin Laden's operatives" in 1989. These "operatives" were recruited at the al Kifah Refugee Centre in Brooklyn, New York, given paramilitary training in the New York area and then sent to Afghanistan with US assistance to join Hekmatyar's forces. Mohammed was a member of the US army's elite Green Berets. The program, reported the Independent, was part of a Washington-approved plan called "Operation Cyclone".

In Pakistan, recruits, money and equipment were distributed to the mujaheddin factions by an organisation known as Maktab al Khidamar (Office of Services - MAK). MAK was a front for Pakistan's CIA, the Inter-Service Intelligence Directorate. The ISI was the first recipient of the vast bulk of CIA and Saudi Arabian covert assistance for the Afghan contras. Bin Laden was one of three people who ran MAK. In 1989, he took overall charge of MAK. Among those trained by Mohammed were El Sayyid Nosair, who was jailed in 1995 for killing Israeli rightist Rabbi Meir Kahane and plotting with others to bomb New York landmarks, including the World Trade Center in 1993. The Independent also suggested that Shiekh Omar Abdel-Rahman, an Egyptian religious leader also jailed for the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, was also part of Operation Cyclone. He entered the US in 1990 with the CIA's approval. A confidential CIA report concluded that the agency was "partly culpable" for the 1993 World Trade Center blast, the Independent reported.

Bin Laden

Osama bin Laden, one of 20 sons of a billionaire construction magnate, arrived in Afghanistan to join the jihad in 1980. An austere religious fanatic and business tycoon, bin Laden specialised in recruiting, financing and training the estimated 35,000 non-Afghan mercenaries who joined the mujaheddin.

The bin Laden family is a prominent pillar of the Saudi Arabian ruling class, with close personal, financial and political ties to that country's pro-US royal family. Bin Laden senior was appointed Saudi Arabia's minister of public works as a favour by King Faisal. The new minister awarded his own construction companies lucrative contracts to rebuild Islam's holiest mosques in Mecca and Medina. In the process, the bin Laden family company in 1966 became the world's largest private construction company. Osama bin Laden's father died in 1968. Until 1994, he had access to the dividends from this ill-gotten business empire.

(Bin Laden junior's oft-quoted personal fortune of US$200-300 million has been arrived at by the US State Department by dividing today's value of the bin Laden family net worth - estimated to be US$5 billion - by the number of bin Laden senior's sons. A fact rarely mentioned is that in 1994 the bin Laden family disowned Osama and took control of his share.)

Osama's military and business adventures in Afghanistan had the blessing of the bin Laden dynasty and the reactionary Saudi Arabian regime. His close working relationship with MAK also meant that the CIA was fully aware of his activities.

Milt Bearden, the CIA's station chief in Pakistan from 1986 to 1989, admitted to the January 24, 2000, New Yorker that while he never personally met bin Laden, "Did I know that he was out there? Yes, I did ... [Guys like] bin Laden were bringing $20-$25 million a month from other Saudis and Gulf Arabs to underwrite the war. And that is a lot of money. It's an extra $200-$300 million a year. And this is what bin Laden did."

In 1986, bin Laden brought heavy construction equipment from Saudi Arabia to Afghanistan. Using his extensive knowledge of construction techniques (he has a degree in civil engineering), he built "training camps", some dug deep into the sides of mountains, and built roads to reach them. These camps, now dubbed "terrorist universities" by Washington, were built in collaboration with the ISI and the CIA. The Afghan contra fighters, including the tens of thousands of mercenaries recruited and paid for by bin Laden, were armed by the CIA. Pakistan, the US and Britain provided military trainers.

Tom Carew, a former British SAS soldier who secretly fought for the mujaheddin told the August 13, 2000, British Observer, "The Americans were keen to teach the Afghans the techniques of urban terrorism - car bombing and so on - so that they could strike at the Russians in major towns ... Many of them are now using their knowledge and expertise to wage war on everything they hate."

Al Qaeda (the Base), bin Laden's organisation, was established in 1987-88 to run the camps and other business enterprises. It is a tightly-run capitalist holding company - albeit one that integrates the operations of a mercenary force and related logistical services with "legitimate" business operations. Bin Laden has simply continued to do the job he was asked to do in Afghanistan during the 1980s - fund, feed and train mercenaries. All that has changed is his primary customer. Then it was the ISI and, behind the scenes, the CIA. Today, his services are utilised primarily by the reactionary Taliban regime. How the CIA created Osama bin Laden

White House Won't Declassify Saudi Material in 9/11 Report

WASHINGTON, July 29 - Hours before President Bush was scheduled to meet with the foreign minister of Saudi Arabia today, the White House rejected a request by the Saudi government and some members of Congress to declassify sections of a document that deal with the link between some Saudi officials and the terrorists involved in the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
In his meeting with Mr. Bush, the Saudi foreign minister, Prince Saud al-Faisal, who arrived in Washington on Monday, was expected to raise his country's concerns about the report, a Congressional study about the terrorist Sept. 11 attacks that was released last week. The study reportedly found that senior Saudi officials had funneled hundreds of millions of dollars to organizations that might have helped pay for the attacks. - truthout.org

Secret paris meetings Salem bin Laden, Osama's oldest brother, is later described by a French secret intelligence report as one of the two closest friends of Saudi Arabia's King Fahd. As such, he often performs important missions for Saudi Arabia. The French report speculates that he is involved in secret Paris meetings between US and Iranian emissaries this month. Frontline, which published the French report, notes that such meetings have never been confirmed. Rumors of these meetings have been called the "October Surprise" and some have speculated Bush Sr. negotiated in these meetings a delay to the release of the US hostages in Iran, thus helping Ronald Reagan and Bush win the 1980 Presidential election. All of this is highly speculative, but if the French report is correct, it points to a long-standing connection of highly illegal behavior between the Bush and bin Laden families (see also Mid-1980s and 1988).

The Bologna atrocity is an example of what Gladio's masters called "the strategy of tension" -- fomenting fear to keep populations in thrall to "strong leaders" who will protect the nation from the ever-present terrorist threat. And as Rajiva notes, this strategy wasn't limited to Western Europe. It was

applied, with gruesome effectiveness, in Central America by the Reagan and Bush administrations. During the 1980s, right-wing death squads, guerrilla armies and state security forces -- armed, trained and supplied by the United States -- murdered tens of thousands of people throughout the region, often acting with particular savagery at those times when peaceful solutions to the conflicts seemed about to take hold.

Last month, it was widely reported that the Pentagon is considering a similar program in Iraq. What was not reported, however -- except in the Iraqi press -- is that at least one pro-occupation death squad is already in operation. Just days after the Pentagon plans were revealed, a new militant group, "Saraya Iraqna," began offering big wads of American cash for insurgent scalps -- up to $50,000, the Iraqi paper Al Ittihad reports. "Our activity will not be selective," the group promised. In other words, anyone they consider an enemy of the state will be fair game. - Chis Floyd - Sword play


The Proactive, Preemptive Operations Group

The worldwide dirty tricks brigade

Beware provocations

The Los Angeles Times has revealed the creation of an organisation by US Secretary of Defence Donald Rumsfeld called the "Proactive, Preemptive Operations Group" Its purpose is to "bring together CIA and military covert action, information warfare, intelligence, and cover and deception". The PPOG's role is to manufacture the terrorism that is to be combatted.

Faced with the massive opposition to their war plans Bush and his team may again be planning some terrorist act to provoke massive revulsion and whip a sceptical and reluctant world into supporting war against Iraq and other targets.

Chris Floyd of CounterPunch writes, "The US government is planning to use 'cover and deception' and secret military operations to provoke murderous terrorist attacks on innocent people. Such operations are not new for the United States authorities.

"Operations Northwoods" was such a scheme. It was a plan put forward by America's top military brass in 1963 to justify the invasion of Cuba. It called for a phony terrorist campaign complete with bombings, hijackings, plane crashes and dead Americans to provide justification for an invasion of Cuba. President Kennedy rejected the plan ? and was assassinated a few months later.

Another similar provocation was a reported attack by Vietnamese naval craft on the US navy in the Tonkin Gulf. It was used by President Johnson to escalate the invasion of Vietnam by American forces. It was subsequently revealed that the incident never took place ? but that was after hundreds of thousands of soldiers and civilians were killed in the Vietnam War.

Many believe that the events of September 11 were another such provocation using a terrorist organisation infiltrated by the CIA and under its effective control. There is no other logical explanation for the complete failure of the interception of the hijacked planes that crashed into the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon. September 11 has been used by Bush, Rumsfeld, Cheney and others to launch the phony "war on terrorism".

The "war on terrorism" requires a steady stream of alleged "terrorist" actions and who better to arrange them than the CIA and Rumsfeld's "Proactive, Preemptive Operations Group" or other "special" forces.

Fabricating an enemy

There is no evidence that the Pentagon or the CIA played a direct role in recent terrorist attacks. The latter were undertaken by organisations (or cells of these organisations), which operate quite independently, with a certain degree of autonomy.

This independence is in the very nature of a covert intelligence operation. The "intelligence asset" is not in direct contact with its covert sponsors. It is not necessarily cognizant of the role it plays on behalf of its intelligence sponsors.

The fundamental question is who is behind them? Through what sources are they being financed? What is the underlying network of ties?
by Michel Chossudovsky

Special ops-

The proposed organization(s) would incorporate and expand existing military covert capabilities for the preparation, training and execution of anti-terrorist operations with the NSC doing the planning.

The Army's highly compartmentalized Intelligence Support Activity, established in 1981 and now known as Gray Fox, anti-terror and intelligence collection capabilities would be included in the postulated hierarchy.

One recommendation calls for the creation of a Proactive Preemptive Operating Group (P2OG) that would oversee missions involving special forces, psychological warfare experts and other covert operations.

One aim would be to "improve information collection by stimulating reactions" among intelligence targets. The intent of the new organizations would be to hold "states/sub-state actors accountable" and "signal to harboring states that their sovereignty will be at risk" according to the panel's briefing paper.

Overall, an outside observer can develop the impression that a myriad of new organizations are proposed to assume the current duties of older units and post-9/11 anti-terror organizations. It probably is the manner in which the press has summarized the lengthy report, but a first reaction to the obviously necessary expansion and better coordination of US anti-terror measures being postulated in the report is that a formidable bureaucracy is to accompany the improvements.

'P2OG' allows Pentagon to fight dirty
By David Isenberg

"Run away from the light": Such might be the motto of a new, covert policy that the Bush administration is considering implementing. According to recent news reports, it would be the largest expansion into the world of black ops and covert action since the end of the Vietnam War in the 1970s.

And that's saying quite a lot, considering that since Vietnam the Pentagon has not exactly been dormant in this area.

As well-known military analyst William Arkin pointed out in an October 27 column in the Los Angeles Times, the development of the Pentagon's covert counter-terror capability has its roots in the 1979 Iran hostage crisis. The army created a highly compartmentalized organization that could collect clandestine intelligence independent of the rest of the US intelligence community, and follow through with covert military action. Today, it operates under the code name Grey Fox. In Afghanistan it operated alongside the Central Intelligence Agency's (CIA) paramilitary Special Activities Division and the Pentagon's Joint Special Operations Command.

Then there are numerous recent initiatives, such as net assessment capabilities at combatant commands, a new campaign support group at Fort Bragg, a counter-terrorism Technology Support Office, to name just a few.

Yet the Pentagon wants more. Its Defense Science Board (DSB) conducted a 2002 "Summer Study on Special Operations and Joint Forces in Support of Countering Terrorism". Excerpts from that study, dated August 16, were leaked and obtained by the Federation of American Scientists, which posted them on their website. The report was produced by a 10-member panel of military experts that included Vice Admiral William O Studeman, former director of the National Security Agency.

According to the leak, the United States is engaged in a global war on terrorism that is "a real war" in case anyone doubts it. This means, among other things, a "committed, resourceful and globally dispersed adversary with strategic reach" against whom the US will wage "a long, at times violent, and borderless war" which "requires new strategies, postures and organization".

That explains why the United States has, so to speak, decided to fight fire with fire. Although the study is filled with lots of the usual buzzwords and phrases that Pentagon planners love, such as "robust connectivity, agile ground forces, adaptive joint command and control and discriminant use of force", one thing that does stand out is its call for "preemption/proaction/interdiction/disruption/quick-response capabilities".

This is consistent with the administration's new National Security Strategy, which called for preemption; indeed, since the DSB study preceded the release of the strategy, it is possible that the strategy was written to incorporate some of its aspects.

The study urges the Pentagon to "take the terrorist threat as seriously as it takes the likelihood and consequences of major theater war", urging officials to launch secret missions and intelligence operations to penetrate and disrupt terrorist cells abroad. Some of those operations should be aimed at signaling to countries that harbor terrorists that "their sovereignty will be at risk".

If adopted, some of the proposals appear to push the military into territory that traditionally has been the domain of the CIA, raising questions about whether such missions would be subject to the same legal restraints imposed on CIA activities.

But William Schneider Jr, chairman of the DSB, rejected such concerns, saying that the panel set out to identify ways that special operations units could do more to assist the war on terrorism, not encroach on other agencies' authority.

"The CIA executes the plans but they use Department of Defense assets," Schneider said. He emphasized that the board was not recommending any changes to long-standing US policies banning assassinations, or requiring presidents to approve in advance US covert operations. Nor, he said, was the panel advocating changes that would erode congressional oversight.

Yet lawmakers have expressed concern with Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld's push to expand the Pentagon's covert capabilities, mainly because the Pentagon is not subject to rules that require the CIA to report its covert activities to Congress.

The DSB summary document suggests that many changes are already under way. It cites the expansion of existing intelligence analysis centers and the creation of new management teams to direct covert operations at such installations as Fort Bragg, where US special forces such as Delta Force are based.

It recommends the creation of a super-Intelligence Support Activity, an organization it dubs the Proactive, Preemptive Operations Group (P2OG), to bring together CIA and military covert action, information warfare, intelligence and cover and deception. For example, the Pentagon and CIA would work together to increase human intelligence (HUMINT) forward/operational presence and to deploy new clandestine technical capabilities.

To bolster government HUMINT capabilities, the task force advances the idea of an intelligence "surge/unsurge" capability - a "robust, global cadre of retirees, reservists and others who are trained and qualified to serve on short notice, including expatriates". This group could be pressed into service during times of crisis.

P2OG would launch secret operations aimed at "stimulating reactions" among terrorists and states possessing weapons of mass destruction, meaning it would prod terrorist cells into action, thus exposing them to "quick-response" attacks by US forces. The means by which it would do this is the far greater use of special operations forces.

Responsibility and accountability for the P2OG would be vested in a "Special Operations Executive" in the National Security Council (NSC). The NSC would plan operations but not oversee their execution in order to avoid comparisons to past abuses, such as the Iran-Contra operations run out of the NSC by Oliver North during the Reagan administration. Under the board's proposal, NSC plans would be executed by the Pentagon or the CIA.

Costs would include developing new means to enable "deep penetration of adversaries" ($1.7 billion annually); exercises and gaming ($100 million annually); development of technical capabilities and the hiring of 500 new staff ($800 million annually); establishment of centers of excellence to handle increased workload ($500 million annually); and expansion of the Joint Forces net assessment activity ($100 million annually). The total cost is envisaged as $3.3 billion.

The DSB study also provides tantalizing glimpses of new capabilities already in the works, referring to new high-tech sensors in development that would enable the United States more closely to track the movements of vehicles or even individuals by satellite. Some of these capabilities are already advanced, such as high-altitude airships, thermobaric weapons and improved urban assault capabilities. Other new projects are being executed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

If the DSB proposal is adopted, it would only reinforce recent Pentagon activity. The Washington Post reported last month that the Pentagon was preparing to consolidate control of most of the global war on terrorism under the US Special Operations Command, signaling an intensified but more covert approach to the next phase in the battle against al-Qaeda and other international terrorist groups.

Special Operations units have been active in Pakistan for months and are training military forces in Yemen and Georgia. These missions could provide a cover for conducting any covert raids and other actions against suspected al-Qaeda members in the two countries.

The United States has also placed more than 500 Special Operations troops in the African nation of Djibouti, where they are near potential hot spots such as Yemen and Somalia. The USS Belleau Wood, an amphibious assault ship that carries attack helicopters and a handful of Harrier jump jets, has been stationed off the Horn of Africa for about six weeks, ready to carry those troops and some specialized helicopters.

And, in early October, the Washington Times reported that US commandos hunting Taliban and al-Qaeda guerrillas in Afghanistan gained permission to employ "source operations" - clandestine tactics typically confined to the CIA.

"Source operations" generally refers to recruiting and maintaining spies within the enemy's camp. In Afghanistan, it means finding Afghans and Arabs, possibly within the Taliban and al-Qaeda network, who would supply intelligence to US special-operations forces...

Ukrainian postmodern coup completes testing of new template

Much of the coup apparatus is the same that was used in the overthrow of President Fernando Marcos of the Philippines in 1986, the Tiananmen Square destabilization in 1989, and Vaclav Havel's "Velvet revolution" in Czechoslavakia in 1989. As in these early operations, the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), and its primary arms, the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs (NDI) and International Republican Institute (IRI), played a central role. The NED was established by the Reagan Administration in 1983, to do overtly what the CIA had done covertly, in the words of one its legislative drafters, Allen Weinstein. The Cold War propaganda and operations center, Freedom House, now chaired by former CIA director James Woolsey, has also been involved, as were billionaire George Soros' foundations, whose donations always dovetail those of the NED.

What is new about the template bears on the use of the Internet (in particular chat rooms, instant messaging, and blogs) and cell phones (including text-messaging), to rapidly steer angry and suggestible "Generation X" youth into and out of mass demonstrations and the like-a capability that only emerged in the mid-1990s. "With the crushing ubiquity of cell phones, satellite phones, PCs, modems and the Internet," Laura Rosen emphasized in Salon Magazine on February 3, 2001,"the information age is shifting the advantage from authoritarian leaders to civic groups." She might have mentioned the video games that helped create the deranged mindset of these "civic groups." The repeatedly emphasized role played by so-called "Discoshaman" and his girlfriend "Tulipgirl," in assisting the "Orange Revolution" through their aptly named blog, "Le Sabot Post-Modern," is indicative of the technical and sociological components involved. - Jonathan Mowat

George Soros

An investor in the notorious Carlyle Group

The collection of influential characters who now work, have worked, or have invested in the group would make the most convinced conspiracy theorists incredulous. They include among others, John Major, former British Prime Minister; Fidel Ramos, former Philippines President; Park Tae Joon, former South Korean Prime Minister; Saudi Prince Al-Walid; Colin Powell, the present Secretary of State; James Baker III, former Secretary of State; Caspar Weinberger, former Defense Secretary; Richard Darman, former White House Budget Director; the billionaire George Soros, and even some bin Laden family members. You can add Alice Albright, daughter of Madeleine Albright, former Secretary of State; Arthur Lewitt, former SEC head; William Kennard, former head of the FCC, to this list. Finally, add in the Europeans: Karl Otto Poehl, former Bundesbank president; the now-deceased Henri Martre, who was president of Aerospatiale; and Etienne Davignon, former president of the Belgian Generale Holding Company. ....

Carlyle emerged from the shadows in spite of itself on September 11, 2001. That day, the group had organized a meeting at Washington's Ritz Carlton Hotel with five hundred of its largest investors. Frank Carlucci and James Baker III played masters of ceremony. George Bush senior made a lightning appearance at the beginning of the day. The presentation was quickly interrupted, but one detail escaped no one. One of the guests wore the name bin Laden on his badge. It was Shafiq bin Laden, one of Osama's many brothers. The American media discovered Carlyle. One journalist, Dan Briody, wrote a book about the group's hidden side, "The Iron Triangle", and takes an interest in the close relations between the Bush clan and the Saudi leadership. Carlyle Empire by Eric Leser

The Corporation, Michael Ledeen, P2, Promis and the secret Eschelon Spybase


It must be remembered that these events took place against a backdrop of unprecedented American intervention in Italy's political life, including $100 million in covert funding of political parties and a fine example of gunboat democracy during the first post-Mussolini election when the U.S. Mediterranean Fleet was poised off the coast near Rome ready to send in the Marines should the electorate make the wrong decision.

Although the 'venerable master' Gelli was a regular visitor to the U.S. Embassy and has had rumours of C.I.A. links surface around him it is not clear, what, if any role was played by the C.I.A. in these events, in the least benevolent neutrality was more than likely their attitude.

Whatever the case may be, the ghosts of the Greek military coup of 1967 hang over the murky shadows where Italy's secret state and fascist underground meet.

This coup and subsequent military regime enjoyed full U.S. backing and was headed by one Colonel Papadopoulos a C.I.A. agent. Shortly before this during a dispute with the Greek Ambassador over American proposals to partition Cyprus, U.S. President Lyndon Johnson delivered the following tirade:

"Fuck your parliament and your constitution. America is an elephant, Cyprus is a flea, Greece is a flea. If these two fellows continue itching the elephant, they may just get whacked by the elephants trunk, whacked good . . . . If your Prime Minister gives me more talk about democracy, parliament and constitution, he, his, parliament and his constitution may not last very long"

In 1980 [Ledeen] entered into a collaboration with Francesco Pazienza, an agent of the Italian secret service (SISMI) and a member of Rome's extreme right-wing Masonic Lodge, P2 (Propaganda Due), headed by the fascist Licio Gelli. In an Italian criminal court in 1985, Pazienza was judged guilty of political manipulation, forgery, and the protection of criminals and terrorists, among other offenses. Indeed, according to the findings of the court, Pazienza falsified information about the Bologna bombing in order to divert attention away from the real (right-wing) terrorists who had staged the attack.
[Herman and O'Sullivan's The "Terrorism" Industry]

Neocon theorist Michael Ledeen draws more from Italian fascism than from the American Right.

...terrorism has been Ledeen's bread and butter since at least the late 1970s, when he consulted for Italian military intelligence. source

Like [James] Rubin, Ledeen too used to be a correspondent for The New Republic, from Rome, back before he got involved in freelancing the arms deal that became known as Iran Contra. As a kind of reporter-right-wing advocate, Ledeen helped out the Reagan campaign by teaming up with an Italian intelligence agent, Francesco Pazienza, now in prison, to "expose" then President Jimmy Carter's brother Billy meeting with Libyan and Palestinian officials. The so called Billygate affair, exposed (if not engineered) by Ledeen and his erstwhile right wing journalist friend Arnaud de Borchgrave in a New Republic article in 1980, alleged that Billy Carter accepted $50,000 from Libyan leader Moammar Qaddafi, and failed to report it to the Justice Department. And Ledeen espoused the great anti-communist canard that the KGB was behind the attempted assassination of Pope John Paul II, a theory that has since been discredited.

From Barbara Honegger's October Surprise:

When the Italian police raided (P2 Lodge founder) Gelli's home in March 1981, it was Michael Ledeen who, at the instigation of Alexander Haig and Henry Kissinger, offered to buy the list of 953 P2 members in an apparent attempt to keep it from becoming public. Henry Kissinger had also reportedly sent Ledeen to Italy to try to squash an investigation into his and Haig's involvement in the founding of P2.

On the morning of August 2, 1980, a massive bomb since linked to Gelli...exploded in the waiting room of the central train station in Bologna, killing 81 people and injuring 200 others. General Santorito, the chief of Italy's military intelligence agency, SISMI, who was also reportedly a member of P2, testified in the wake of the bombing that it had been planned by the British-Swiss-American Montecarlo Comite, P2's "sister" organization based in Monaco. When P2 had come under increasing scrutiny in 1979, grandmaster Licio Gelli had reportedly made his base of operations the Montecarlo Comite.... Not surprisingly, reported members of the Montecarlo Comite are Gelli, Henry Kissinger, Alexander Haig and Michael Ledeen.

Some of Ledeen's own words, on a leadership trait he admires, from his book Universal Fascism:

In order to achieve the most noble accomplishments, the leader may have to 'enter into evil.' This is the chilling insight that has made Machiavelli so feared, admired and challenging... we are rotten.... It's true that we can achieve greatness if, and only if, we are properly led. - Yellowcake & Blackshirts

Jim Lobe on the neocons

Flirting with Fascism -

Such aggressive right wing advocacy cum journalism helped win Ledeen his eventual role as a consultant to Reagan-era Secretary of State Al Haig -- and put him in position to help engineer the Israeli-US arms sales to Iran that became known as Iran-Contra. [Ledeen's role in Iran contra had him testifying before Congressional committees and the independent prosecutor Lawrence Walsh for a good part of the late 1980s. His lawyer? Jim "arm the INC" Woolsey.] - War & Piece

Skulduggery and intrigue and the 'anti-terrorist' advisors

The investigative journalist Jim Lobe has uncovered the muddy footprints of Michael Ledeen, resident scholar in the Freedom Chair at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), international affairs analyst for Karl Rove, Bush's closest advisor, and a veteran 'neo-con'. Lobe discloses that in the late 1970s Ledeen consulted for Italian military intelligence - he was a visiting professor of history at the University of Rome between 1975-1977 and also reported for the magazine 'The New Republic'. Lobe notes: "Ledeen's right-wing Italian connections - including alleged ties to the P-2 Masonic Lodge that rocked Italy in the early 1980s - have long been a source of speculation and intrigue".

The Italian website http://www.movisol.org/ulse.htm makes this reference to Michael Ledeen:

Translation: "One of the most dangerous of these 'bad teachers' is Michael Ledeen, promoter of the the idea of 'universal fascism'. These days he does not stop threatening war against Iran, Syria, and Lebanon, and has evidently been chosen once more by the establishment to manipulate institutions and threaten those who oppose his dangerous and wicked madness. On the other hand, Ledeen has a long history of interference in Italy's strategic choices. During the Moro case he was among those "most suspected" of having misled the enquiries, with the collaboration of the "bretheren" of the P2. It was wondered and it is still wondered why the Italian magistrates do not carry out adequate enquiries about him and his work".

In 1990, Berlusconi was found guilty of perjury for denying his membership P-2. Ledeen is a keen enthusiast of Berlesconi and his 'clear eyed' government. - source

see: Michael Ledeen Demands `Regime Change' in Iran

Ledeen's right-wing Italian connections - including alleged ties to the P2 Masonic Lodge that rocked Italy in the early 1980s - have long been a source of speculation and intrigue, but he returned to Washington in 1981 as "anti-terrorism" advisor to the new secretary of state, Al Haig.

Over the next several years, Ledeen used his position as consultant to Haig, the Pentagon and the National Security Council under Ronald Reagan to boost the notion of a global terrorist conspiracy based in the Kremlin, whose KGB pulled the strings of all of the world's key terrorist groups, especially in the Middle East. - Asia Times

One of the ways in which Jimmy Carter may have "bruised the Octopus", as Casolaro says, was through the imposition of a 1979 embargo on the shipment of arms to Iran. Certainly that bruise healed quickly. Octopus familiar Ted Shackley appears, after his alleged retirement from the CIA in 1979, in 1984 negotiations for the shipment of arms to Iran by the Reagan administration. Shackley passed information from Iranians General Manucher Hashemi and Manucher Ghorbanifar, who had held influential positions in the SAVAK secret police under the Shah, and now were close to the Ayatollah Khomeini, to Oliver North and alleged P2 member Michael Ledeen in the White House. The Iranians suggested that arms shipments to "moderates" such as themselves in Iran could do much to prevent the Ayatollah from taking sides with the Soviets, and could speed the release of the American hostages. The billions of dollars of arms shipments began, using Israel, Taiwan, and South Korea as middlemen, as early as 1981, with some of the profits from the Iranian shipments being diverted to help the contra cause in Nicaragua.?.

The National Endowment for Democracy has been alleged to be a private intelligence network with the purpose of establishing a fascist, corporatist world state, a theme which also seems to inform the movements of Casolaro's Octopus. The model of this state can be observed in Michael Ledeen's book, Universal Fascism, in which he extolls a fascist state based upon the ideals of Gabriele d'Annunzio, Mussolini's predecessor. Ledeen was connected to P 2, which was in turn connected to the NSC. Reporting directly to North (as well as being a consultant in the Pentagon and State Department) was Michael Ledeen. Ledeen was responsible for obtaining Israeli Mossad spy Jonathan Pollard his job in the Department of the Navy, for establishing a line of Israeli influence into the NSC, and is known in Italy to have been a member of the P2 (Propaganda Due) Masonic lodge. P2, with a membership believed to include Henry Kissinger and Alexander Haig, is the organization known to have taken over the highest levels of Italian government and responsible during the 70s and 80s for an attempted bankrupting of the Vatican, in an alliance that linked the P2, the KGB, and major networks of drug trade.The Wall Street Journal detailed a meeting between Alexander Haig, Michael Ledeen, and high ranking P 2 member and number two man in Italian intelligence Francesco Pazienza. Pazienza is said to have been involved in shipments of US arms to Iran arranged by the Reagan administration.

DOJ had a backdoor added into the program so that the U.S. could access the files of whoever they sold the PROMIS program to, including the governments of Israel and Canada. This led to further revelations and meetings with various informants that further revealed a complex web of deceit leading down some surprising avenues. Casolaro now changed his plans to writing a novel, perhaps even presenting it as fiction in order to avoid scaring off publishers. But before this happened, Casolaro was found dead from what was an obviously staged suicide and many of his notes disappeared. - source

Island of Dominica and the SECRET NON USA ECHELON BASE.

the Octopus of the 21 Century, left a trail. It cost the lifes of Casolaro, Standorf, Lubin and my sister Joan.

The trail that all can see, and have no doubt of its existence is on the Island of Dominica and the SECRET NON USA ECHELON BASE. We have asked the Republicans and the Democrats to check out Dominica.

They have done nothing.

Either there is a secret base on Dominica or not... easy to check and very OBJECTIVE.

In the neighborhood of $2 to $3 billion dollars was spent from the late 1980's to the 1990s.

They cannot erase it, but its up to the proper law enforcement authorities and the Congress of the USA to expose this to all the American people.

Rense: intro - The secret base

In the Caribbean, is the tiny Island of Dominica, not the Dominican Republic. This small island nation was once a territory of England, and only recently was granted soverignity.

The Question is: "Why a secret "private non USA" base in this country?"

This tiny nature island has a small native population. It is located near the equator and between the two continents and is ideally and geographically positioned for satellite communications. Since it has its own soviergnity, it is very difficult for any law enforcement agencies to monitor and/or investigate.

But the most important reason for this base is: There is the trememdous amount of geothermal energy. It has the only Boiling Lake in the world. To run a secret "non USA" Project Echelon base (see an earlier post: Sunday Nov 14,1999 on Project Echelon), it takes allot of energy...and this is an independent renewable energy resource that would attract minimial attention while in continual operation. This type of energy source has been built near an Indian Reseveration for a cost of only $25,000,000...and not used for farming, commerical, industrial or public use.

Last year this has been confirmed by a reliable source from within Dominica the geothermal power plant exists. Also Danny Casolaro, when alive, through a Mr. Nichols in California was made aware of this source. He reported this observation in his notes. Casolaro was going to expose the connections between some unauthorized black projects involving Hughes, (an Octopus company), and the power Elite. He was given this information by a government employee and had hard evidence of who was the head of the Octopus Group..(see Bill Hamilton's post under the quoted above reported post) and shortly after his investigation he was killed.

Dominica has off shore gambling, and off shore banking. You can become a citizen there for a fee of $50,000.00 and enjoy a tax haven. It is a very quite island inhabited mainly by native indians. In the CIA factbook it is listed as a place for farming, relatively quite, but used on the drug routes between the Americas. There is no mention of this geothermal power plant. Finally on this tiny quiet island...one will find the nerve center, a secret base, for the information flow of the world...and a "NON USA" Private Project Echelon...being powered by this geothermal energy plant. - more

The coup - necessary in the Corporate Global takeover

1981 - 'Droege and Dominca: The US-Canadian Extremist Connection?'

'It is a tale so bizarre that newspapers called it a 'comic book escapade' and local police named it the 'Bayou of Pigs.' What makes the story so incredible is that, although it read like a Hollywood plot, the invasion, according to FBI anti-terrorism specialists, had a high rate of success. Commenting at the time, Eugenia Charles, the Prime Minister of Dominica, stated that the island's police force was unprepared for the planned invasion and that 'a lot of people would have died.'

'On 27 April 1981, two Canadians, Wolfgang Walter Droege and Larry Lloyd Jacklin, along with eight Americans, were arrested in New Orleans by US government agents in an early morning raid. Later, four more Canadians would be arrested, including Marion McGuire, James McQuirter, Charles Yanover, and Harold Woods.'

"All of the Canadians and Americans arrested were members of the far right with the exception of Yanover and Woods. Yanover is a well-known Mafia crime figure from Toronto while Woods was a psychiatric patient apparently in love with McGuire who was arrested in Dominica when he tried to break McQuirter out of prison."

"In Dominica, Patrick John, the former Prime Minister, Major Fred Newton, the commander of the army, three additional army officers, and two civilians (including Dennis Joseph, the former manager of the Dominican broadcasting service) were arrested. In total, more than 20 people were convicted of conspiracy charges in Canada, the US, and Dominica." - Grenada Revolution

1997 - The Guinea plot

"It is a story with implausible characters and plot twists.

There is the alleged cannibal dictator, his playboy son and scheming relatives.

There is the offshore oil waiting to make millionaires out of those audacious or desperate enough to seize it.

There is the exiled politician and the Chelsea plutocrat. There is the planeload of mercenaries stopping in Harare to pick up weapons.

And, at the heart of it all, there is Simon Mann. How the plot went awry and landed this unusual Englishman in manacles may come to be judged as the end of an era of white buccaneers who thought they ruled Africa."
