El Chapo escape re-focuses attention on CIA-drug links…

Via

The second escape from a Mexican maximum security prison of feared Sinaloa drug cartel chieftain Joaquin Guzman Loera, also known as El Chapo, has re-focused attention of the ties between the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency and drug manufacturing and smuggling syndicates around the world.

Drug smuggling planes used by the Sinaloa and other Mexican cartels and linked to the CIA have been interdicted in Mexico. One, a Gulfstream used by the CIA to rendition suspected Al Qaeda members, crash landed in Yucatan in September 2007. On board the aircraft were 3.3 metric tons of cocaine bound for the Sinaloa cartel from Colombia.

In 2006, Mexican police, acting on a tip from INTERPOL, seized a DC-9 aircraft carrying 5.5 tons of cocaine with an estimated street value of $100 million. The plane had made an emergency landing at Ciudad del Carmen in Campeche state. The DC-9 was painted in the familiar blue and white colors of the U.S. Transportation Security Administration.

In addition, the Zetas cartel, with support from Mossad cells operating in Guatemala and Costa Rica have used weapons smuggled from the United States and drugs smuggled from Mexico and other locations to launch major CIA-sponsored destabilization efforts aimed at toppling the Sandinista government from power in Nicaragua and seeing the leftist National Unity of Hope (UNE) government of Guatemala ousted in the 2012 election.The ouster of the leftist government in Guatemala was accomplished.

The CIA’s ties to El Chapo follow a long history of CIA links to drug smuggling war lords in Third World nations. During the Indochina War, the CIA’s ties with General Khun Sa in Burma’s opium-producing Golden Triangle and General Vang Pao’s drug smuggling operations in Laos, provided Langley which substantial “off-the-books” revenues for clandestine activities around the world. The CIA’s Golden Triangle smuggling operations continue to exist with CIA fronts, mostly shipping companies based in Bangkok, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Macao, smuggling pure morphine into the United States.

Ever since the U.S. occupation of Afghanistan, the CIA has been at the center of Afghanistan’s opium and heroin smuggling operations. Most of the smuggling was carried out under the regime of President Hamid Karzai, an old CIA operative since the CIA-led mujaheddin war against the Soviets in the 1980s. When the Taliban banned opium production in 2000, the CIA stepped up its anti-Taliban operations through proxies in the Afghan Northern Alliance and anti-Taliban elements living in Pakistan.

Karzai’s half-brother, Ahmed Wali Karzai, a kingpin in the Afghan heroin trade, has also been on the payroll of the CIA. This was even reported by The New York Times in 2009.

During the 1980s, two Nicaraguan contra operatives, Carlos Cabezas and Julio Zavala, were convicted by the U.S. Justice Department of drug trafficking in Miami, San Francisco, and New Orleans. Another drug smuggler, Juan Norwin Meneses Cantarero, was an operative for the two leaders of the contras, Adolfo Calero and Enrique Bermudez. In 1982, the CIA requested the Justice Department to return $36,800 in cash seized from a Meneses operative who was busted in San Francisco. The CIA said the money had to be returned in order to protect an “operational equity.” That equity was the Contra leadership.

The CIA also cooperated with the Israeli Mossad in drug running in the 1980s. Eric Arturo Del Valle, the man Panamanian General Manuel Noriega selected to serve as Panama’s President from 1985 to 1988, was not only a leading member of Panama’s Jewish community but Mossad’s number one asset in Central America. The CIA used the Del Valle family’s sugar export business to smuggle cocaine into the United States. In 1988, the United States exfiltrated Del Valle from Panama City to Miami. Del Valle had broken with Noriega and was replaced as president after the Panamanian junta leader’s indictment by the U.S. Justice Department for drug smuggling. Del Valle arrived at Miami International Airport with several pieces of luggage, some suspected of containing nothing but cash. U.S. Secret Service agents accompanied Del Valle and his wife Marianella to an “undisclosed location.”

The CIA also used Steadman Fagoth Muller, the leader of MISURA, a coalition of Nicaraguan Atlantic coast Indian tribes, the Miskito, Sumo and Rama, to help facilitate the CIA’s Caribbean off-shore narcotics smuggling activities. Miskito Indians began harvesting what became known as “white lobster” — floating packages of cocaine jettisoned from ships originating in Colombia — later picked up by CIA aircraft from small landing strips in Nicaragua and delivered to Mena airport in Arkansas; Marianna airfield, near Memphis; and Marana airport in Arizona.

The Miskito and other tribes received weapons from the CIA in return for the cocaine. Also used to smuggle drugs into the United States was the old CIA proprietary company, Zapata Off-Shore, which was once “owned” by George H W Bush, the vice president of the United States when most of the CIA’s drug smuggling activities were taking place. The shrimp trawlers of another CIA front, Pacific Seafood, was used to transport drugs from Zapata oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico to the U.S. mainland. One important destination for the contraband was John F. Kennedy International Airport, where the drugs were delivered into the hands of Italian mafia boss John Gotti’s men. The link between Gotti and the CIA was known to Jeh Johnson, the Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York. The CIA links were covered up after the Mafia don’s arrest in 1989. Today, Johnson is Secretary of Homeland Security.

The Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico smuggling operations primarily involved the co-founders of the Medellin cartel in Colombia, Carlos Lehder and Pablo Escobar. As with Noriega who served time in a Florida federal prison, Lehder is housed in a minimum-security Florida federal correctional center. Noriega, who is now in a Panamanian prison, after serving time in a French prison, and Lehder are being kept on ice because of the knowledge they have of the Bush family’s and CIA’s involvement in drug smuggling. Escobar was killed by the Colombian National Police in 1993 after his location was determined through triangulation of his communications signals. The operation was assisted by the U.S. National Security Agency. Escobar was shot in the head, torso, and leg.

When Noriega’s American lawyers threatened to expose videotapes showing Noriega and George H W Bush conspiring to smuggle drugs into the United States, the trial judge, William M. Hoeveler, merely ruled that the CIA could not be brought up by the defense during Noriega’s trial in Miami. Hoeveler, a Jimmy Carter nominee, served on the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida until his retirement last year. Although he obviously took his orders from Langley, Hoeveler is praised by his colleagues as a shining star of American jurisprudence. One of his clerks, Kevin Martin, later became a member of the Bush-Cheney recount team in Florida in 2000 and chairman of the Federal Communications Commission under George W. Bush.

There have been appeals for Noriega’s release in Panama and Lehder’s release to his father’s native Germany. As long as the Bush family has anything to do with such decisions, both will remain in prison indefinitely.

“The Ecuadorean government received new declassified CIA documents on Tuesday as part of an ongoing investigation to determine if the 1981 plane crash that killed President Jaime Roldos was part of the U.S.-backed Operation Condor plan”

The office of the attorney general in Ecuador is investigating if the death of former President Jaime Roldos was an assassination of Operation Condor.

The Ecuadorean government received new declassified CIA documents on Tuesday as part of an ongoing investigation to determine if the 1981 plane crash that killed President Jaime Roldos was part of the U.S.-backed Operation Condor plan.

“We are investigating so that the Ecuadorean people know exactly what happened with the death of President Roldos,” Attorney General Galo Chiriboga told Andes news agency.

The Ecuadorean Attorney General’s office obtained four CDs as well as over 400 pages of detailed information regarding the death of former president Jaime Roldos.

“I think that we have an obligation to act and we consider this case to be imprescriptible,” Chiriboga stated.

An estimated 60,000 people were killed as a result of Operation Condor by its end in the mid-1980s.

“The CIA’s operational directorate, in other words that’s their covert operations, para-military, dirty tricks — call it whatever you want — has for at least 40 years that we can document paid for a significant amount of its work through the sales of heroin and cocaine”

The Islamic State is destroying opium fields in Afghanistan as it routs the Taliban, according to witnesses.

The reports may ultimately result in the US sending troops back into the country to protect these valuable and highly lucrative assets.

CIA and Afghan Opium

In 2009 it was reported that the CIA controlled the opium trade in Afghanistan through Ahmed Wali Karzai, the brother of the former president, Hamid Karzai, who began his career as a fundraiser for the CIA’s mujahideen during the 1980s.

“CIA-supported Mujahideen rebels engaged heavily in drug trafficking while fighting against the Soviet-supported government and its plans to reform the very backward Afghan society,” William Blum writes in The Real Drug Lords.

“The Golden Crescent drug trade, launched by the CIA in the early 1980s, continues to be protected by US intelligence, in liaison with NATO occupation forces and the British military. In recent developments, British occupation forces have promoted opium cultivation through paid radio advertisements,” Michel Chossudovsky wrote in 2007.

The corporate media, however, has portrayed the Taliban as the source of opium cultivation in the country. Prior to the U.S. invasion of the country, the Taliban were instrumental in outlawing the opium trade, according to the United Nations.

Several years after the invasion and during the occupation by the United States, the drug trade soared to a record $65 billion and Afghanistan produced 92 per cent of the world’s opium, with the equivalent of 3,500 tons leaving the country each year. Other figures put the number far higher, at around 6,100 tons a year.

In 2010 Infowars.com reported on a Gerald Rivera interview with an American soldier who admitted guarding opium fields in Afghanistan.

In 2014 the opium trade reached a new high, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime’s 2014 Afghan Opium Survey.

Opium Trade Floats Wall Street

Banks and financial institutions have long been suspected of using illegal drug sales as a source of profit.

“In many instances, drug money is currently the only liquid investment capital,” said Vienna-based UNODC Executive Director Antonio Maria Costa said in January of 2009. “In the second half of 2008, liquidity was the banking system’s main problem and hence liquid capital became an important factor.”

Former Managing Director and board member of Wall Street investment bank Dillon Read, Catherine Austin Fitts, says banks launder imponderable amounts of drug money.

“According to the Department of Justice, the US launders between $500 billion – $1 trillion annually. I have little idea what percentage of that is narco dollars, but it is probably safe to assume that at least $100-200 billion relates to US drug import-exports and retail trade,” writes Fitts.

The CIA has long secured the lucrative global drug market for Wall Street and for its own operational “off-the-books” purposes.

“The CIA’s operational directorate, in other words that’s their covert operations, para-military, dirty tricks — call it whatever you want — has for at least 40 years that we can document paid for a significant amount of its work through the sales of heroin and cocaine,” Guerrilla News Network reported in an interview with Christopher Simpson.

The CIA has been in the drug running business since the 1950s. In Burma, Vietnam, Laos, Latin America, and Afghanistan, the CIA — also known as the “Cocaine Import Agency” — has remained at the forefront of the international illicit drug trade. The journalist Gary Webb and the San Jose Mercury News tied the CIA and the Contras to a large crack cocaine ring in Los Angeles. Webb paid with his life for revealing this information to the public.

Photos of secret CIA torture sites released…

New information confirming the existence of CIA prisons in Romania has been issued in the public space. According to the Washington Post, the U.S. administration has thousands of photos of the places where terrorists, had been detained, including in our country. However, Romanian officials have denied their existence, even if former President Ion Iliescu acknowledged in an interview to a German publication that he provided to the CIA a “headquarters” in Romania.

The U.S. administration holds about 14,000 photos from CIA-operated secret prisons in other countries, including Romania, where terrorist suspects appear, but also CIA and foreign intelligence services staff, said US officials quoted by the Washington Post.

The bulk of the photographs depict black sites in Thailand, Afghanistan and Poland. There are fewer shots of prisons in Romania and Lithuania, which were among the last to be used before they were closed in 2006.

According the Washington Post, the electronic images depict external and internal shots of facilities where the CIA held ­al-Qaeda suspects after 9/11, but they do not show detainee interrogations, including the torture of some suspects who were subjected to waterboarding and other brutal techniques.

They do include images of naked detainees during transport, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the material remains classified.

The pictures also show CIA personnel and members of foreign intelligence services, as well as psychologists Bruce Jessen and James Mitchell, among the architects of the interrogation program.

“Among the images are those of cells and bathrooms at the detention sites, including a facility in Afghanistan known as “Salt Pit,” where the waterboard was photographed. A U.S. official described the photographs of the Salt Pit as looking like a dungeon. The official added that many of the pictures appear to have been taken for budgetary reasons to document how money was being spent,” the Washington Post reports.

“The existence of the approximately 14,000 photographs will probably cause yet another delay in the military commissions at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, as attorneys for the defendants demand that all the images be turned over and the government wades through the material to decide what it thinks is relevant to the proceedings.Defense attorneys said they have not yet been informed about the photographs and said it is unacceptable that they should come to light now, more than three years after the arraignment of Khalid Sheik Mohammed and four other defendants accused of planning the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks”.

“The government will probably resist any attempt to turn over photos of CIA officers and other personnel, arguing that it could endanger their personal security, while the defense will want to identify potential witnesses,” the Washington Post maintains.

CIA’s male and female prostitution escort services…

Via

In a highly revealing new book “Confessions of a DC Madam: The Politics of Sex, Lies, and Blackmail,” (Trine Day Publishing) by Henry Vinson with Nick Bryant, the title may lead one to believe that the book is about the late Deborah Jeane Palfrey, the “DC Madam” whose Pamela Martin & Associates escort service ensnared for over a decade a number of DC’s most powerful politicians with Palfrey’s female escorts. However, the memoirs of Vinson, another sort of “Madam” describe how his escort service for DC’s powerful provided young men to satiate the homosexual desires of powerful leaders, including the then-director of the Central Intelligence Agency William Casey. Casey preferred 18-year old male escorts with minimal body hair. Casey would meet the escorts at the former Ritz-Carlton Hotel near DuPont Circle and enjoyed having the young escorts rub oil on his body as he kissed and fondled them. Casey settled on 18-year old prostitutes from Vinson’s service but apparently preferred them younger.

What Palfrey and Vinson had in common is that their escort services were used by the CIA to blackmail targeted politicians and diplomats in Washington, DC and New York. Vinson used his position as the funeral director of the W. W. Chambers funeral home in Washington, DC to provide a corporate cover for his gay escort service, the largest ever discovered to be operating in the nation’s capital. In his book, Vinson writes: “Given my former incarnation as a DC madam, I followed the tribulations, trial, and death of Deborah Jeane Palfrey with intense interest. I marveled at the striking similarities between our cases, and I empathized with her dire circumstances.” Both Palfrey and Vinson were hit multiple federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) act charges, Vinson with 43 counts and Palfrey with 14, in order to squeeze them financially and psychologically. The inaptly-named Justice Department was more interested in protecting the nation’s most powerful politicians than in upholding the law. In Vinson’s case, they included Casey and George H. W. Bush and in Palfrey’s case, Dick Cheney and CIA director Porter Goss. Vinson tends to agree with those who believe Palfrey was murdered in order to ensure her silence. WMR’s investigation of the Palfrey “suicide” supports Vinson’s contention.

Eventually, Vinson’s escort service would count among its “frequent flyers” Representatives Barney Frank (D-MA) and Larry Craig (R-ID). Craig, according to Vinson, preferred the “hairy” or “bear” types. After years of casting votes against gay rights, Craig was arrested in 2007 in a Minneapolis airport toilet stall attempting to solicit sex from an undercover cop. Vinson also became involved with a top gay blackmailer in DC named Craig Spence, a former newsman for ABC. Spence’s parties at his Kalorama Road mansion drew a number of well-known guests, including Senators John Glenn (D-OH) and Frank Murkowski (R-AK), former Attorneys General Elliott Richardson and John Mitchell, former ambassadors Robert Neumann and James Lilly, and media personalities Ted Koppel, Eric Severeid, and William Safire. Casey was also a frequent guest at Spence’s “A-List” soirees.

It was Spence’s and Nebraska Republican African-American leader Larry King’s circles who provided underage teens to powerful politicians for the sole purpose of blackmailing them. Many of the trysts that Spence arranged for DC politicians were secretly filmed by the CIA. One of the frequent customers of Vinson’s escort service was Donald Gregg, a 31-year veteran of the CIA and colleague of William Colby in the Phoenix Program, a political assassination operation in South Vietnam. Gregg was also the national security adviser to Vice President Bush and, according to Spence, it was Gregg who organized the “midnight tours” of the White House for underage male teens, including Congressional pages, that was featured in “above-the-fold” headlines in The Washington Times.

As the Vinson gay escort and Spence/King pedophile scandals, the latter becoming known as the “Franklin scandal,” began to reach into the offices of Bush and Casey, the federal government struck with a vengeance. Spence was arrested on drug charges and later was said to have committed suicide in his room at the Ritz-Carlton in Boston, Vinson was arrested and even his mother was threatened with prosecution, and the U.S. Attorney for DC, Jay Stephens, decided to misuse every federal law on the books to protect Bush, Casey, and the CIA from being named in the shut down of the DC escort service and pedophile network operating out of Nebraska. The Washington Post, the CIA’s always-reliable newspaper, began attacking The Washington Times’s series of stories on the gay escort and pedophile networks.

Vinson also discloses that as early as 1990, after he was facing down a long prison sentence, the Secret Service asked him about an escort named Jeff Gannon. Vinson was surprised to hear the name as he only knew him as person who claimed he was both an escort and a journalist who provided services to senior-level echelons of the Bush 41 White House. On occasion, Vinson saw Gannon at Shooter’s, a gay hangout in DuPont Circle. Gannon later surfaced in the Bush 43 White House as a credentialed reporter who entered the White House on 200 occasions but failed to check out of the executive mansion on 14 days, including one day that there was not even a press conference held. During his trial, Vinson was represented by Greta Van Susteren who managed to convince him to undergo therapy from her Church of Scientology colleagues who said they cleared him of “engrams” but not of the up to 78 months of prison he faced on the trumped up federal charges. Vinson served time at the federal prison in Lorton, Virginia and Morgantown, West Virginia. Van Susteren was more interested in helping the government keep Vinson in prison and out of the limelight than in seeking a minimal sentence for her client. Scientology’s L. Ron Hubbard, of course, was an integral part of the CIA’s MK-ULTRA program, which used sexual blackmail, in addition to drugs and psychological pressure, on its targets. However, unlike the unfortunate fate of Jeane Palfrey, Vinson lived to tell his story. Vinson was facing federal prosecution in 1990. It was the same year that Palfrey started up her female escort service, with the CIA’s Kyle “Dusty” Foggo being her chief liaison to the agency.

A number of retired CIA officers, who have later written books and gone on the speakers circuit, claimed that because of their jobs, whether analytic or in some specialized niche, they were never aware of the CIA’s seamier side, including running child prostitutes, sex escort blackmail services, and drug rings. The intelligence agencies are no different than any other work place. Employees gossip. It’s human nature. This editor witnessed CIA employees engaged in gossipy whispered conversations in the CIA’s and NSA’s cafeterias. At agency “hale and farewells” and retirement luncheons, where alcohol is a common denominator, the gossip gets even more interesting. At one NSA farewell luncheon, at which a Navy Commander, a former military aide to Vice President Bush, was merely transferring from one element in NSA to another, I was told by the Commander that he was going into a compartment where he could no longer have any contact with his former co-workers. After copious pints of German beer — the farewell party was at a local German restaurant — the Commander then let it slip that is new job was monitoring the communications of senior U.S. government officials, including his old boss, Bush. When former CIA officers claim they never heard of certain indiscretions by the CIA, they are being disingenuous at best and outright liars at worst.

The Ford Foundation and the CIA…

The US based Ford Foundation is not new to controversies. Many call it a front for the American external spying agency CIA. There have been thousands of articles and research papers on Ford Foundation’s CIA links. Even in India, the Ford Foundation is accused of funding the NGOs and movements which actually work against India’s socio, political and economic interests.

Some beneficiaries of the Ford Foundation money and some activists are up in the arms condemning the government’s decision to put Ford Foundation under the surveillance of intelligence agencies.

James Petras, a Bartle Professor (Emeritus) of Sociology at Binghampton University, New York, and author of: Globalization Unmasked: Imperialism in the 21st Century throws light on the inseparable relationship between the CIA and the Ford Foundation.

In a 2001 article titled ‘The Ford Foundation and the CIA’, he writes, “The CIA uses philanthropic foundations as the most effective conduit to channel large sums of money to Agency projects without alerting the recipients to their source. From the early 1950s to the present the CIA’s intrusion into the foundation field was and is huge. A US Congressional investigation in 1976 revealed that nearly 50% of the 700 grants in the field of international activities by the principal foundations were funded by the CIA (Who Paid the Piper? The CIA and the Cultural Cold War, Frances Stonor Saunders, Granta Books, 1999, pp. 134-135).”

The CIA considers foundations such as Ford “The best and most plausible kind of funding cover” (Ibid, p. 135). The collaboration of respectable and prestigious foundations, according to one former CIA operative, allowed the Agency to fund “a seemingly limitless range of covert action programs affecting youth groups, labor unions, universities, publishing houses and other private institutions” (p. 135).

The latter included “human rights” groups beginning in the 1950s to the present. One of the most important “private foundations” collaborating with the CIA over a significant span of time in major projects in the cultural Cold War is the Ford Foundation. This essay will demonstrate that the Ford Foundation-CIA connection was a deliberate, conscious joint effort to strengthen US imperial cultural hegemony and to undermine left-wing political and cultural influence. We will proceed by examining the historical links between the Ford Foundation and the CIA during the Cold War, by examining the Presidents of the Foundation, their joint projects and goals as well as their common efforts in various cultural areas.”

According to Petras, by the late 1950s the Ford Foundation possessed over $3 billion in assets. The leaders of the Foundation were in total agreement with Washington’s post-WWII projection of world power. A noted scholar of the period writes: “At times it seemed as if the Ford Foundation was simply an extension of government in the area of international cultural propaganda. The foundation had a record of close involvement in covert actions in Europe, working closely with Marshall Plan and CIA officials on specific projects” (Ibid, p.139). This is graphically illustrated by the naming of Richard Bissell as President of the Foundation in 1952. In his two years in office Bissell met often with the head of the CIA, Allen Dulles, and other CIA officials in a “mutual search” for new ideas. In 1954 Bissell left Ford to become a special assistant to Allen Dulles in January 1954 (Ibid, p. 139). Under Bissell, the Ford Foundation (FF) was the “vanguard of Cold War thinking”.

One of the FF first Cold War projects was the establishment of a publishing house, Inter-cultural Publications, and the publication of a magazine Perspectives in Europe in four languages. The FF purpose according to Bissell was not “so much to defeat the leftist intellectuals in dialectical combat (sic) as to lure them away from their positions” (Ibid, p. 140). The board of directors of the publishing house was completely dominated by cultural Cold Warriors. Given the strong leftist culture in Europe in the post-war period, Perspectives failed to attract readers and went bankrupt.

Another journal Der Monat funded by the Confidential Fund of the U.S. military and run by Melvin Lasky was taken over by the FF, to provide it with the appearance of independence (Ibid, p. 140).

In 1954 the new president of the FF was John McCloy. He epitomized imperial power. Prior to becoming president of the FF he had been Assistant Secretary of War, president of the World Bank, High Commissioner of occupied Germany, chairman of Rockefeller’s Chase Manhattan Bank, Wall Street attorney for the big seven oil companies and director of numerous corporations. As High Commissioner in Germany, McCloy had provided cover for scores of CIA agents (Ibid, p. 141).

McCloy integrated the FF with CIA operations. He created an administrative unit within the FF specifically to deal with the CIA. McCloy headed a three person consultation committee with the CIA to facilitate the use of the FF for a cover and conduit of funds.

With these structural linkages the FF was one of those organizations the CIA was able to mobilize for political warfare against the anti-imperialist and pro-communist left. Numerous CIA “fronts” received major FF grants. Numerous supposedly “independent” CIA sponsored cultural organizations, human rights groups, artists and intellectuals received CIA/FF grants.

One of the biggest donations of the FF was to the CIA organized Congress for Cultural Freedom which received $7 million by the early 1960s. Numerous CIA operatives secured employment in the FF and continued close collaboration with the Agency (Ibid, p. 143).

From its very origins there was a close structural relation and interchange of personnel at the highest levels between the CIA and the FF. This structural tie was based on the common imperial interests which they shared.

The result of their collaboration was the proliferation of a number of journals and access to the mass media which pro-US intellectuals used to launch vituperative polemics against Marxists and other anti-imperialists. The FF funding of these anti-Marxists organizations and intellectuals provided a legal cover for their claims of being “independent” of government funding (CIA).

He concludes that the Ford Foundation is well situated to replay its role as collaborator to cover for the New Cultural Cold War.

The Ford Foundation claims that it helps the third world to strengthen the democracy. If we go by this argument, that should keep India safe because the US claims to further the cause of democracy while India is the largest democracy, right?

According to journalist Surajit Dasgupta, that notion is wrong. He says that the Americans often follow an Indira Gandhi-like policy: Romancing with nefarious elements till they serve as Pentagon’s puppets. A deep probe into the cia-on-campus.org site reveals that the Ford Foundation has dirty pro-Islamic businesses it would rather be silent on.

There have been a number of reports by journalists about it founding anti-Israel NGOs. It is also worth noting that Henry Ford created the Ford Foundation while he was involved in and impressed by Nazi Germany, two years before he received his award. Remember, Ford also had a factory in Imperial Japan and, for some unexplained reason in March 1945, Japan sent orders for a pro-independence committee to be formed in Indonesia.

Former Ford Foundation president Richard Bisell acknowledged that the purpose of the Ford Foundation was not “so much to defeat the Leftist intellectuals in dialectical combat as to lure them away from their positions”. In other words, you make them work in ‘harmless’ activities, and not in those that may eventually pose a threat to the interests of the US Administration.
