Henry Kissinger Backs
Sen. John McCain
Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger lent his support to Republican presidential
candidate John McCain at a Manhattan fundraiser Thursday.
"I think that the most important quality for a president is character," Kissinger
said. "All the decisions that the president has to decide, the most important ones are
very close decisions. And I have great confidence that John will help us solve the
toughest problem for any administration and for our country - to take us from where we
are to where we haven't been, and I think John is the man to do this."
Kissinger was one of several people McCain said he calls seeking advice on foreign
policy, including Brent Scowcroft, George P. Shultz, Lawrence Eagleburger, Robert
Kagan and William Kristol.
"When I have a question about something that's going on in the world, I call Dr.
Kissinger and he is able to connect the dots for me," McCain said. "It is easy to be an
expert on one aspect of some international situation. He's one of the only people I've
ever known who can connect the entire scenario for you in a way that you understand
the completeness of the challenge."
Bob Hope: Thanks for the (Sordid) Memories
By Uri Dowbenko, Steam Shovel Press
Ding-dong, the perp is dead (alleged, that is), since Bob Hope will not be tried in a court
of law on earth.
Despite the nearly universal idolatry of the so-called “legendary comedian,” there was
evidently a part of Bob Hope’s life that was hidden even from his Hollywood celebrity
According to a book by Brice Taylor called “Thanks for the Memories: The Memoirs of
Bob Hope's and Henry Kissinger's Mind-Controlled Sex Slave,” things are definitely not
the way they seem.
Hope died July 27, 2003 at the age of 100, while Brice Taylor, one of his alleged
victims, remains, by this account, a valiant survivor of trauma-based mind control.
Having endured a lifetime of high-tech slavery, her autobiography, published in 1999,
documents in stunningly nasty detail her abuse at the hands of celebrity perps like Bob
Hope, Henry Kissinger, and many others.
"What most of you have not been allowed to know is that years ago, at the outset of the
Cold War, permission was given to a hidden group of so-called 'professionals and
leaders' to experiment on the unsuspecting American populace in an effort to further a
variety of advanced technology," writes Taylor.
"The technology gleaned by the American leaders, medical professionals and scientists
was and still is in the form of bio-electromagnetic frequency medicine, genetic
engineering, mind control, brain research, near-death experimentation,
paranormal/psychic experimentation, remote viewing, time and space travel and other
advanced research that make our everyday human understanding look antiquated."
According to her memoirs, Brice Taylor has suffered from man-made artificially
induced Multiple Personality Disorder, (MPD) now also called Dissociative Identity
Disorder (DID. This trauma-based conditioning technique can produce many discrete
"personalities" inside a single person. These personalities can then be programmed like
a computer to perform specific tasks, either as sex slave-prostitutes, couriers, or
“mind-files," accessible only to the person who knows the special "codes" that will
access the “program."
Many years of therapy, healing and reconstruction of her own life's memories --
obscured by ritual abuse and mind control programming -- have allowed Brice Taylor to
tell her horrific life story....
HIGH TECH WHITE SLAVERY
Taylor's book is the story of the creation of a human robot, a story so mind-boggling
and outrageous that it's almost too horrific for words.
As a little girl, Brice Taylor (a pseudonym) was subjected to ongoing traumas, including
multiple and continual rapes by her father, who also used her for child prostitution and
“For years my father performed a variety of brutal ritual type physical and psychological
abuses,” she writes, “among them confinement in closets, cages and coffins, while I
was being told I was left to die; near drowning; isolation; needles inserted in sensitive
body areas, food and sleep deprivation; electroshock via electric wires, welding
equipment and cattle prods; drugging; sophisticated hypnotic and electronic
She was also forced to participate in torturous rituals and orgies. Then she was “sold” in
a slave auction.
Elitists in the market for mind control slaves attend auctions that appear at first like
children's fashion shows and then progress to striptease acts,” she writes. “I made
appearances at many shows before I was actually 'sponsored' or sold.”
And who was her “owner”? It was none other than world famous celebrity Bob Hope
himself, according to Taylor. She later discovered that her other “sponsor,” whom she
learned to call “Uncle Charlie” was Charles L. Horn, owner of the Federal Cartridge
Company, which later funded Olin Foundation, where he sat as president.
Charlie physically introduced her to Henry Kissinger who continued her mind control
programming in preparation for her later use as his “mind file,” programmed with a
photographic memory to act as a human personal computer with classified and other
government files, accessible to Kissinger only....
Besides being prostituted to the power elite, she was also taught to perform for them.
She even recited a “mind control” standup comedy routine for these high-level perverts
-- her jokes written by Bob Hope himself.
This “personality” was called “Sharon” and this was her repertoire.
Imagine a kid delivering this monologue for the amusement of an audience of celebrity
“I told my owners it's enough that you clowns expect me to work for free. You know that
it was bad enough that they broke the child labor laws, and I told them that when I
learned about it in school, they just laughed. But on top of that was slave labor and I
recited the constitutional amendment that was causing a problem in my internal mind
file legal system. I told Henry it kept getting thrown out and I pretended that it was
repeatedly escaping and leaping out of my right ear. He thought I was funny and told
me to refile it anyway. Then I was sent off for more reconditioning. I never thought they
would stop with that stuff, and I was right. Zap. Zap. Zap.”
The “zaps,” by the way, were electric shocks to “remind” her and “recondition” her
LIFE AS A MIND-CONTROLLED SEX SLAVE
From an early age, Brice Taylor was prostituted as a mind controlled sex slave to
Presidents John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford and
then Governor Ronald Reagan.
I overheard conversations where the President of the United States and other top
politicians were offered the services of ‘escorts,' the CIA’s latest human robot
technology -- programmed sex and espionage slaves,” she writes.
“They were encouraged to use these escorts to satisfy their sexual and emotional
needs, instead of exposing themselves to outside individuals... As I later learned,
‘Project Monarch’ Beta-trained sex slaves were called ‘Million Dollar Babies’
referring to the large amount of money each slave would bring in from a very early age.
In the 60s, the use of a Project Monarch presidential model sex slave cost around
$1200 for an evening. Henry called me his "million dollar machine.'"
Kissinger also used her as a human personal computer, accessing her mind files at
meetings of the Energy Commission, NATO, the Council on Foreign Relations,
Trilateral Commission and House Appropriations on Foreign Trade.
GLOBAL POWER GAMES OF THE ILLUMINATI *
Taylor also writes extensively about an Illuminati-like "Council" which directs policies
and stages global events from behind the scenes. "Henry was the top dog as far as the
Council was concerned," she writes. 'He had the mind they needed that could so
carefully strategize plans so far in advance and so he usually got the desired results. In
the Council's eyes, Rockefeller was more dispensable because he had the money and
power but didn't have the mastermind that they saw in Henry."
“Behind the scenes, Henry controlled decisions and actions taken by the State
Department in matters of foreign relations, always attempting to bring about a situation
where the Council was in total control globally. They saw it as a game, a lifelong plan,
with the outcome hopefully being that finally this generation of the global elite would
succeed in the game that their forefathers had not been able to pull off. It created
ambition and drive among them."
THE VICTIMIZATION OF HER DAUGHTER KELLY
In a chapter of the book called "Baby Monarchs Are Born," Taylor writes while Reagan
was President, the Vice President was a pedophile, describing the traumatization of her
daughter Kelly at the hands of George Bush, Sr.
“Over the years, Kelly was closely tied into the trauma I received,” she writes.
“Repeatedly she was tortured and traumatized in front of me in an effort to keep me in
line. Her torture fragmented her psyche in order to create multiple personalities within
her, so she could follow in my footsteps for later use as a ‘presidential model.’”
“Unfortunately she didn't have to wait very long for that so-called 'privilege' as our newly
elected vice president at the time, George Bush, was/is a pedophile and Kelly was
created to be, as I later found out from a renegade CIA operative, what was called a
Cathy O'Brien, whose own account of her mind control abuse is called “Trance
Formation in America,” also coincidentally, or not, has a daughter named Kelly. It's
been claimed by government sources that little girl “Bush Babies” are named “Kelly” so
the pedophile won't have to remember the name of the little girl he's brutalizing
wherever he may be.
Also coincidentally or not, Brice Taylor recounts a story of being hunted by George
Bush on Bob Hope's Jordan Ranch in “The Most Dangerous Game.” This deranged
so-called “sport” of celebrity perps is also described by O'Brien in her book. The
depravity of the criminal power elite is consistent -- if nothing else...
HEALING, FORGIVENESS & MERCY
In spite of the outrageous events described in her book, Brice Taylor refers to her
experiences in the context of spiritual warfare on Planet Earth -- an invisible war for the
lives, the free will and the souls of mankind. Mind control is one of the ultimate
“I also learned that freedom is not free,” writes Brice Taylor, “and we must now stand in
the battle, not through violence and war, but through knowledge, truth and love,
claiming our true spiritual power and willing to stand, so our voices can be heard.”

* Illuminati: The Order of the Illuminati was started, on May 1, 1776, by Adam
Weishaupt, a Jew who was also in the Jesuit Order of the Catholic Church, thus making
him a Jewish Jesuit. The true purpose of the Illuminati is world hegemony: a One
World Order ruled by an elite pretending to represent the common man, but in reality
disenfranchising and enslaving the entire population of the world for the Illuminati’s own
selfish, evil purposes. Their agents are bred, educated, and trained to be placed behind
the scenes at all levels of government. As experts and advisers, they mold government
policy to further the secret plans of their masters. They lure people away from God by
offering them money, the world, the flesh, and the devil.
Those who direct the Illuminati are against Christ and in favor of Satan. They always
remain in the dark, behind the scenes, unidentified, and generally unsuspected. They
use all peoples to serve their diabolical purposes. By supplying arms and money to
both sides in wars, the Illuminati divide and conquer, instigating peoples of the
world to fight and kill each other to achieve the Zionist Jews’ objective of world
control. The terrorism of atomic warfare is deliberately fostered, and world famines
are purposely created. Their primary goal is to form a One World Government,
destroying all religions and national governments in the process.

THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES
The Memoirs of Bob Hope’s and
Henry Kissinger’s Mind Control Slave
by Brice Taylor (Sue Ford)
Brice Taylor (Sue Ford) quotes:
Society is being weeded out right now, as minority species are being eliminated very
specifically by biological germ warfare and other tactics meant to insure the elimination
of those less genetically favourable... Our food is being tampered with, by the insertion
of food additives and substances like aspartame. ....They view this as a massive
genetic cleanup." --Thanks for the Memories: The Memoirs of Bob Hope's and Henry
Kissinger's mind control slave by Brice Taylor, p281
George Bush was /is a pedophile and Kelly was created to be a "bush baby"...It was
difficult to carry on small talk with Mrs Bush while my child was being raped. – Thanks
for the Memories, by Brice Taylor
From what I witnessed, illicit drugs and gun running backed much of the American
economy....A group of American officials were selling munitions to a nation we were at
war with....What looked like the defence of our nation or training of our troops was really
drug transportation...the Presidents were usually well aware of this
business.....Everyone in the government that held any position of power was well aware
of these drug transactions and their importance to our country's economy. - p243
From my experience I believe Elvis was a puppet, a pawn, and in the end totally
directed, and finally, used by these men in control of him....After awhile Elvis couldn't
function any longer. Henry (Kissinger) and his buddies laughed and said that Elvis was
like the tin man, all rusted up and ready for the junkyard. They waited for him to
become seriously dysfunctional from the increasing amount of drugs prescribed by his
doctors. Then they "stopped his ticker so he didn't have to suffer no more". – p135
They were trying to destabilise the government by ousting the President...First Nixon,
now Clinton, thus the people will lose faith in their leaders and the democratic way of
life. ......"So they will want to change it and will lean toward World Order." – p252
Henry said, "You won’t be servicing him (JFK) much longer. The higher ups have some
alternate plans for him."...my controllers told me, "If we can take out the President
without anyone knowing, who would miss the likes of you?" – p55
There was trauma done in the form of being stuck with pins and needles, being burned,
hung by my feet - sometimes to crosses, spun, dropped off a table as an infant, near
drowning, sexual abuse and orgies, being drugged, food and sleep deprivation, and
then adding to that when I was around five, was all of the military mind control that was
done with very sophisticated instrumentation and chairs and electroshock. – Interview:
Brice Taylor (Sue Ford)
"Ritual abuse is a brutal form of abuse of children, adolescents, and adults, consisting
of physical, sexual and psychological abuse, and involving the use of rituals. Ritual
does not necessarily mean satanic. However, most survivors state that they were
ritually abused as part of satanic worship for the purpose of indoctrinating them into
satanic beliefs and practices. Ritual abuse rarely consists of a single episode. It usually
involves repeated abuse over an extended period of time. The physical abuse is
severe, sometimes including torture and killing. The sexual abuse is usually painful,
sadistic, and humiliating, intended as a means of gaining dominance over the victim.
The psychological abuse is devastating and involves the use of ritual/indoctrination,
which includes mind control techniques and mind altering drugs, and
ritual/intimidation which conveys to the victim a profound terror of the cult members
and of the evil spirits they believe cult members can command. Both during and after
the abuse, most victims are in a state of terror, mind control, and dissociation in which
disclosure is extremely difficult." (Los Angeles County Commission For Women,
1991) - Neurofeedback and Other Interventions for Patients with Ritual Abuse, Mind
Control, and Dissociative Disorders, by Susan Ford

Cash payoffs, bonds and murder linked
to White House 911 finance
Documents point to attack on America
by White House crime families
by Tom Flocco, www.tomflocco.com
Sioux City, Iowa – According to leaked documents from an intelligence file obtained
through a military source in the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), on or about
September 12, 1991 non-performing and unauthorized gold-backed debt instruments
were used to purchase ten-year "Brady" bonds. The bonds in turn were illegally
employed as collateral to borrow $240 billion--120 in Japanese Yen and 120 in Deutsch
Marks--exchanged for U.S. currency under false pretenses; or counterfeit and unlawful
conversion of collateral against which an unlimited amount of money could be created
in derivatives and debt instruments.
The illegal transactions are also linked to the murder of a U.S. Army colonel charged
with overseeing approximately 175 secret CIA bank accounts, according to the officer’s
wife, Mrs. V. K. Durham.
During multiple interviews, Durham told TomFlocco.com that Bush 41 and Clinton
administration officials visited her husband Colonel Russell Hermann several times in
the months prior to and three days before his torture and murder on August 29, 1994....
"Control files" blackmail congressional and DOJ officials
Stewart Webb alleges that an important key to the "control" of the U.S. House and
Senate has been the use of blackmail via "Operation Brownstone," led by individuals he
calls CIA shadow government players like Ted Gunderson, Harold George Pinder
and Clint Murchinson Jr. – setting up legislators for blackmail through child
pedophilia rings using both vulnerable male and female children from orphanages all
across the United States. This, according to scores of documents and witnesses.
Americans who are concerned about pedophilia, with near daily reports of kidnappings
or disappearances of young children who later turn up dead or fall victim to Mexican,
South American and Middle Eastern child sex slavery need only start with the ongoing

Cooking the Insurance Books
A Decade of Lax Regulation Lays Groundwork for Scandal
By Lucy Komisar, Special to CorpWatch
In October, New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer filed suit against the world’s largest
insurance broker, Marsh, accusing it of rigging bids and receiving kickbacks in order
to defraud clients such as other corporations, city governments, school districts and
individuals of billions of dollars through inflated premiums.
“Greedy trial lawyers were the usual excuse for premium increases. Now we
know that greedy corporations also have a starring role,” Spitzer said, accusing
several insurance companies as co-conspirators in making phony or inflated bids and
paying kickbacks to the brokerage to get business.
Spitzer also announced that two executives from the insurance conglomerate
American International Group (AIG) had already confessed to related criminal
charges. But his investigations into AIG may have only scratched the surface. A paper
trail stretching back a decade reveals that AIG used offshore shell companies to skirt
The current scam which Spitzer has uncovered works like this: Marsh, an insurance
broker, is supposed to find the best insurance policies for its clients from a wide range
of companies. Instead it steered the policies to companies such as AIG that agreed to
pay kickbacks. It solicited phony competitive bids for insurance contracts to deceive
customers into thinking there was real competition for the business. Marsh made $800
million on kickbacks in 2003 alone - over half its $1.5 billion profit. With a 40-percent
share of the global insurance brokerage market, its fraud drove up prices for
Lax Regulators Give AIG a Free Pass
At Spitzer’s press conference, New York State Insurance Superintendent Gregory V.
Serio said: “This has gone from an inquiry into failure to disclose compensation to an
active investigation of bid rigging and improper steering. This certainly proves the
adage that where there is smoke, there is fire.”
But AIG’s comportment could not have been much of a surprise to Serio, who was New
York’s deputy insurance superintendent in the late 90s. That’s when New York and
three other states gave the powerful company a pass on some very questionable
practices. If they had paid attention to the smoke then, perhaps this billion-dollar fire
wouldn’t have ignited.
In the late 90s, four state insurance departments - New York, Delaware, Pennsylvania
and California were aware that AIG was moving debt off its books via the use of an
offshore shell company it secretly set up and controlled. But despite clear evidence of
wrongdoing, no sanctions were ordered....
In the mid-80s, two of AIG’s reinsurers failed. The bankruptcy liquidators paid creditors,
including AIG, over several years but meanwhile the amount owed was liable to show
up as unacceptably high levels of debt on the AIG books.
Trevor Jones, an insurance investigator who for 20 years has run Insurance Security
Services in London, explained, “Hank [Greenberg] decided to set up Coral Re [a
reinsurance company] to move the debts he couldn’t claim as assets into this other
company. ... No real company would play ball, because you are fiddling the accounts,
moving your bad debts off your books.”
So AIG went to elaborate lengths to set up a shell company in Barbados, where capital
requirements and regulation was minimal compared to the U.S., where American
regulators couldn’t readily discover AIG’s involvement and where, as an added
incentive, it could move money out of reach of U.S. taxes....
Though it is an American company listed on the New York Stock Exchange, AIG makes
extensive use of offshore jurisdictions such as Barbados, Bermuda and Luxembourg
that are immune from U.S. regulatory and tax scrutiny. They help the company launder
profits to evade U.S. taxes and hide insider connections in supposedly “arms-length”
deals. This is especially important as the company has moved into financial services
and asset management, handling the wealth of “high net-worth” clients – the mega-rich.
Greenberg has enviable political clout, never so much in evidence as when, with the
help of Henry Kissinger – chair of AIG’s international advisory committee and a paid
consultant via Kissinger Associates – AIG became in 1995, the first company licensed
to sell insurance in China. AIG was the only foreign firm that owned 100 percent of its
Goldman Sachs and Robert Rubin
Coral Re, a Barbados reinsurance company, was launched with a private sale of
shares organized by Goldman Sachs, then headed by Robert Rubin, who would
become President Clinton’s Treasury Secretary and is now chairman of the
executive committee of Citigroup.
A confidential memorandum ... told why the company was formed: “AIG’s interest in
creating the Company is to create a reinsurance facility which will permit the U.S.
companies to write more U.S. premiums. For a U.S.-domiciled company, a high level
of surplus is required to support insurance premiums in accordance with U.S. statutory
requirement. The statutory requirements in Barbados are less restrictive.”...
Rubin buddy Bill Clinton, then governor of Arkansas, may also have thrown his weight
behind the project. The Arkansas Finance and Development Authority (ADFA),
headed by a man who went to work in the Clinton White House, became lead investor,
although state law banned it from buying stocks.
The new company was not a legitimately independent business. For investors, there
was no money at risk; the board of directors never made a decision; and Coral Re had
no office of its own but was managed by American International Management, a
subsidiary of none other that AIG.
Eventually, the scheme unraveled. State insurance examiners look at company books
every five years. “In 1992, Delaware examiners auditing Lexington (an AIG subsidiary)
smelled a rat,” a former regulator from one of the four investigating insurance
departments told CorpWatch....
Things have gotten tougher for the company since the Enron affair caused the SEC to
look more serious about corporate corruption. ... Last year, AIG paid a $10 million fine
to the SEC for helping the Indiana wireless telecom company Brightpoint commit
accounting fraud. AIG marketed a “non-traditional” insurance product aimed at “income
statement smoothing,” spreading a loss over future reporting periods. The SEC called
such financial products “just vehicles to commit financial fraud” and said the
insurance giant refused to give it subpoenaed documents, compounding its misconduct.
The U.S. Justice department is currently investigating but has yet to file criminal
Business Insurance, a trade publication, editorialized on the timidity of regulators for
giving AIG “little more than a tap on the wrist” in exchange for “a promise not to do it
“The message delivered here is that a company of AIG’s power and complexity can
afford to be openly hostile to state oversight and, in the end, have things pretty much its
own way. That is a disheartening message, indeed,” wrote the magazine’s editors....

U C Regents Lose Control of
Nuclear Weapons Program
Five admirals, Carlyle Group and Rand take over
By Leuren Moret, San Francisco Bay View
Research on population control, preventing future births, is now being carried out
secretly by biotech companies. Dr. Ignacio Chapela, a University of California
microbiologist, discovered that wild corn in remote parts of Mexico is contaminated with
lab altered DNA. That discovery made him a threat to the biotech industry.
Chapela was denied tenure at UC Berkeley when he reported this to the scientific
community, despite the embarrassing discovery that UC Chancellor Berdahl, who was
denying him tenure, was getting large cash payments - $40,000 per year - from the
LAM Research Corp. in Plano, Texas.
Berdahl served as president of Texas A&M University before coming to Berkeley.
During a presentation about his case, Chapela revealed that a spermicidal corn
developed by a U.S. company is now being tested in Mexico. Males who
unknowingly eat the corn produce non-viable sperm and are unable to reproduce.
Depopulation, also known as eugenics, is quite another thing and was proposed
under the Nazis during World War II. It is the deliberate killing off of large segments of
living populations and was proposed for Third World countries under President
Carter’s administration by the National Security Council’s Ad Hoc Group on Population
National Security Memo 200, dated April 24, 1974, and titled “Implications of world
wide population growth for U.S. security & overseas interests,” says:
“Dr. Henry Kissinger proposed in his memorandum to the NSC that ‘depopulation
should be the highest priority of U.S. foreign policy towards the Third World.’ He
quoted reasons of national security, and because ‘the U.S. economy will require large
and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less-developed
countries ... Wherever a lessening of population can increase the prospects for such
stability, population policy becomes relevant to resources, supplies and to the economic
interests of U.S.”
Depopulation policy became the top priority under the NSC agenda., Club of Rome and
U.S. policymakers like Gen Alexander Haig, Cyrus Vance, Ed Muskie and Kissinger.
According to an NSC spokesman at the time, the United States shared the view of
former World Bank President Robert McNamara that the “populatin crisis” is a greater
threat to U.S. national security interests that “nuclear annihilation.” In 1975, Henry
Kissinger established a policy-planning group in the U.S. State Department’s Office of
Population Affairs. The depopulation “GLOBAL 2000" document for President Jimmy
Carter was prepared.
It is no surprise that this policy was established under President Carter with help from
Kissinger and Brzezinski - all with ties to David Rockefeller, The Bush family, the
Harriman family, the Wall Street business partners of Bush in financing Hitler - and the
Rockefeller family are the elite of the American eugenics movement. Even Prince
Philip of Britain, a member of the Bilderberg Group, is in favor of depopulation:
“If I were reincarnated I would wish to be returned to earth as a killer virus to lower
human population levels” (Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh, leader of the World
Wildlife Fund, quoted in “Are You Ready for Our New Age Future?” Insiders Report,
American Policy Center, Dec. 1995)
Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has been proposing, funding and building Bio-Weapons Level 3 and Level 4 labs at many places around the U.S. - even on
university campuses and in densely populated urban locations. In a Bio-Weapons
Level 4 facility, a single bacteria or virus is lethal. Bio-Weapons Level 4 is the highest
level legally allowed in the continental U.S.

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina - Former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger let verbal
support to Argentina’s military junta, which had been cracking down on dissidents,
according to newly declassified documents obtained by a U.S. watchdog group.
“We would like you to succeed,” Kissinger told Argentine Foreign Minister Adm. Cesar
Augusto Guzzetti during a meeting in New York Oct. 7, 1976, according to the U.S.
His comments were revealed in papers obtained and released Thursday by the National
Security archives, an independent Washington-based group that monitors Freedom of
Information Act issues.
Kissinger did not immediately respond to calls for comment from The Associated Press.
But he has repeatedly denied ever condoning human rights abuses.
He has increasingly faced criticism for U.S. backing of authoritarian governments in
Latin America and Southeast Asia as part of Washington’s bid at the time to contain the
spread of communism.
In the seven-page transcript marked “secret”, Kissinger is quoted as telling Guzzeti
that human rights issues were growing in Argentina.
According to the document, he offers support, nonetheless, to the military rulers who
seized power in a coup in March 1976.
“Look, our basic attitude is that we would like you to succeed,” Kissinger said, according
to the documents, first reported by The Miami Herald. “I have an old-fashioned view
that friends ought to be supported. The quicker you succeed, the better.”
The Argentine military launched its systematic crackdown on leftists groups in March
1976, beginning six years of iron-fisted rule that saw 8,900 people disappear,
according to a government report. Human rights groups put the number at around
Guzzetti assured Kissinger the country’s “struggle” against the leftists would conclude
by the end of 1976....
The military government remained in power until democracy was restored in 1983.
Following Argentina’s dictatorship, many ranking military officers were tried on charges
of abduction, torture and execution of suspected leftist opponents of the regime. They
were imprisoned in 1985 but later pardoned in 1990 by then-President Carlos

Amazon Customer Review of book:
by William Shawcross.
Reviewer: R. ARANT "toun" (Lanesville, Indiana USA)
Back to the future -- Rome, Cambodia, Iraq ...
While I've read this book many times over the years, my most recent reading struck me
hard. The description of the May 8, 1970 meeting between Henry Kissinger and a
number of his friends and personal advisors from Harvard did not seem especially
interesting in past years, but jumped off the page this time around.
Thomas Schelling told Kissinger that after the invasion of Cambodia the group no
longer had faith in Henry or the Nixon administration's ability to conduct foreign policy,
and would have nothing further to do with Kissinger. The group pointed out that the
invasion could be "used by anyone else in the world as a precedent for invading
another country, in order, for example, to clear out terrorists."
Another section recounts Arthur Schlesinger Jr. quoting a historian's recollection of
the Romans -- "There was no corner of the known world where some interest was not
alleged to be in danger or under actual attack. If the interests were not Roman, they
were of Rome's allies; and if Rome had no allies, the allies would be invented."
Shawcross also notes that in 1964 the US condemned Britain for assaulting a Yemeni
town used as a base by insurgents attacking Aden.
Another chilling touch is the mention of Lincoln's reaction when he was advised that the
President could invade a neighbor if necessary to repel invasion -- Lincoln replied,
"Study to see if you can fix any limit to his power in this respect, after you give him
as much as you propose."
Lincoln's famous speech given as a young man in the 1830s in which he remarked that
all the armies of Europe could not forcibly take a drink of water from the Ohio River and
therefore "... if this great nation is to ever die, it will be from suicide" rings more
true than the words of today's politicians proclaiming the right to declare
An excellent summary of the events that overtook Cambodia, "Sideshow" has much
more to offer to us today as we try to figure out how we reached this turning point in our
history and recall how badly things can go wrong whenever we deviate from the
principles upon which our nation was founded.

Bush Names Kissinger
to Lead 9/11 Probe
By JENNIFER LOVEN, Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush named former Secretary of State Henry
Kissinger on Wednesday to lead an independent investigation of the Sept. 11 attacks
and said the probe "must uncover every detail and learn every lesson" of the terrorist
"We are under no restrictions, and we will accept no restrictions," Kissinger told
reporters at the White House.
Kissinger, 79, will lead an investigative commission created under a bill Bush signed
authorizing intelligence activities in the 2003 budget year.
"This commission will help me and future presidents to understand the methods of
America's enemies and the nature of the threats we face," Bush said at a White House
ceremony with lawmakers, survivors and victims' families.
"This investigation should carefully examine all the evidence and follow all the facts
wherever they lead," said Bush, who was initially cool toward creating an independent
"We must uncover every detail and learn every lesson of September the 11th."
Kissinger spoke briefly to family members before talking with reporters after the
ceremony. "To the families concerned, there's nothing that can be done about the
losses they've suffered, but everything must be done to avoid that such a tragedy can

He was secretary of state to Presidents Richard M. Nixon and Gerald R. Ford. He won
the Nobel Peace Prize in 1973 with North Vietnam's Le Duc Tho for cease-fire
negotiations during the Vietnam war. Kissinger also made a determined peacemaking
effort in the Middle East and made repeated trips to the region.
But he has also been called a war criminal by his harshest critics, for the role he played
in Vietnam and other hot spots, working at times with corrupt governments in pursuit of
The independent panel will have 18 months to examine issues such as aviation security
and border problems, along with intelligence.
Bush called on members to report back more quickly than 18 months, saying the nation
needed to know quickly how it can avoid terror attacks in the future.
However, Bush did not set as a primary goal for Kissinger to uncover mistakes or
lapses of the government that could have prevented the Sept. 11 attacks.
Instead, he said the panel should try to help the administration learn the tactics and
motives of the enemy.
"This commission is not only important for this administration, this commission will be
important for future administrations until the world is secure from the evildoers that
hate what we stand for," Bush said....
Like the Homeland Security Department, the independent commission was an idea to
which Bush's support came late.
The White House held that only Congress should investigate, arguing that an
independent probe could distract administration officials from anti-terrorism efforts and
produce leaks that could compromise intelligence operations.
The change of heart came in September, as family members of Sept. 11 victims
applied pressure and congressional hearings began to uncover intelligence and
law enforcement failures....

KISSINGER RESIGNS AS HEAD OF PANEL
INVESTIGATING TERRORIST ATTACKS
By Ron Flournier, Associated Press
WASHINGTON - Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger stepped down yesterday
as chairman of a panel investigating the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, citing controversy
over potential conflicts of interest with his business clients.
“It is clear that, although specific potential conflicts can be resolved in this manner, the
controversy would quickly move to the consulting firm I have built and own,” Kissinger
wrote in a letter to President Bush, who appointed him.
“I have therefore, concluded that I cannot accept the responsibility you proposed.”
The decision was another blow for the fledgling panel. Its original vice chairman, former
Sen. George Mitchell, D-Maine, resigned from the commission Wednesday, partly
because of pressure to quit his law firm. Former U.S. Rep. Lee Hamilton, D-Ind., was
named to replace him.
No replacement for Kissinger was announced, but Bush was expected to fill the position
Kissinger’s resignation came one day after he tried to assure victim’s relatives that his
business interests would not conflict with his duties as chairman.
A leader of a relatives’ group, Kristen Breitweiser of September 11th Advocates, said
the Kissinger and Mitchell resignations, “reaffirms my belief that the commission
needs to be pure, transparent and purely independent.” ...
Bush issued a written statement saying he accepted Kissinger’s resignation with regret
and that “his chairmanship would have provided the insights and analysis the
government needs to understand the methods of our enemies and the nature of the
threats we face.”...
Senators said all commission members must submit financial disclosures that would
reveal potential conflicts.
But the White House contended Kissinger, as Bush’s sole appointee, should not have
had to submit a report because the law does not require presidential appointees
to submit disclosures if they are not being paid....

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know
About Henry Kissinger
By Barbara O'Brien, Democratic Underground
Just when you thought George W. Bush couldn't get more outrageous, he appoints
Henry Kissinger to head the "independent" September 11 investigation.
Julian Borger writes in The Guardian that Americans reacted to this appointment with
"relief mixed with nostalgic affection," while Europeans were surprised to learn
Kissinger was not dead or in jail.
I knew he was not dead or in jail. But to this American, having him back in government
is like finding maggots in a sandwich.
Henry Kissinger: International Man of Mystery
Kissinger was Richard Nixon's national security advisor and, later, secretary of state for
Nixon and Gerald Ford. He helped Nixon concentrate power in the White House by
excluding Congress and professional diplomats from the conduct of foreign policy. He
was a "lone ranger" of world affairs, traveling the globe, conducting secret meetings and
covert operations with little oversight.
He scored some remarkable successes; for example, a secret trip to Beijing in 1971
paved the way for Nixon's famous visit to China in 1972. He received the Nobel Peace
Prize in 1973 (shared with Le Duc Tho of North Vietnam) for the negotiations that
eventually ended U.S. involvement in Vietnam. After the 1973 Middle East war
Kissinger negotiated disengagement agreements that separated Israeli and Arab
However, let's not forget that Kissinger and Nixon were responsible for widening the
Vietnam War into Cambodia.
Let's not forget that Kissinger ordered the FBI to tap the telephones of subordinates on
the staff of the National Security Council.
Let's not forget the covert actions that led to the overthrow of socialist President
Salvador Allende of Chile and the ascension of the oppressive Augusto Pinochet.
Let's not forget East Timor. During a state visit to Jakarta in 1975, Kissinger gave a
"green light" to the Indonesian dictator Suharto to invade East Timor. Less than a day
after Kissinger and President Gerald Ford left Jakarta, Suharto's troops began their
assault. According to Christopher Hitchens, a quarter of a million Timorese died as a
result of the occupation by Indonesia.
Kissinger left government service at the end of the Ford Administration, but was called
upon by Ronald Reagan in 1983 to head the National Bipartisan Commission on
Central America, just in time for the Iran-Contra scheme. From 1984-1990 he served as
a member of the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board.
Although there is no "smoking gun" evidence directly connecting Kissinger to Iran-Contra, Kissinger's long-time associate and protége John Negroponte - now
ambassador to the UN - was in the thick of it.
Kissinger is associated with the word "Realpolitik," which means politics or national
policy governed by principles of power, expansion, and expediency rather than by
ideals or ethics. It's a policy favored by powerful people interested in hanging on to
their power. However, in the long run it does more harm than good.
"Previous Kissingerian forays into realpolitik have placed the US into some of history's
ugliest footnotes: support for the intemperate Shah of Iran; the bombing of civilians in
Vietnam and ultimate destabilization of Southeast Asia; kidnap, murder, assassination,
and coup in Chile; the liquidation of hundreds of thousands of 'leftists' in Indonesia; a
coup in Guatemala that led to four decades of mayhem and butchery; legally dubious
escapades in Nicaragua; complicity in the slaughter of uncountable Catholic laypeople,
clergy, and religious in El Salvador; support of Saddam Hussein as a balance against
Iran, followed by a war against an overly ambitious Hussein, culminating in the
shameful abandonment of Kurds and Shiites foolish enough to join a U.S.-instigated uprising.
"Some of these adventures, such as US flirtation with Kurdish nationalists, can only be
called cynical and cruel. What typifies virtually all of the others, besides the almost
incomprehensible brutality visited upon the world's most vulnerable people, is their
consistent failure. In the long term, none of these realpolitik-inspired interventions can
be said to have achieved their purported or even unspoken goals."
Kevin Clarke, "Realpolitik Redux," U.S. Catholic, January 2002
More Blasts from the Past
Kissinger founded the New York-based consulting firm Kissinger Associates in 1982,
a year before accepting the position as head of the National Bipartisan Commission
on Central America. And, beginning in 1986, Kissinger Associates became entangled
with the infamous Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI).
BCCI was a Pakistani-managed, Middle East-financed bank with branches in 70
countries. In a nutshell, BCCI's purpose was "stealing very large amounts of money
and using it for a multitude of illegal purposes, perverting governments,
corrupting politicians, corrupting regulators, corrupting bank regulators,"
according to Wall Street Journal reporter Peter Truell.
In 1986-1989, BCCI initiated a series of contacts with Kissinger Associates. Over
several months, representatives of BCCI and representatives of Kissinger Associates
explored the possibilities for joint projects. Following BCCI's indictment in 1988,
representatives continued to meet to discuss how Kissinger Associates might help
BCCI respond to the indictment. Kissinger ended these discussions in 1989, according
BCCI itself may not have become a client of Kissinger Associates. However, a
congressional investigation found that BCCI's secretly owned affiliate, the National
Bank of Georgia, was.
"The committee has obtained documents showing that the former president of the
National Bank of Georgia, Mr. Roy Carlson, received a briefing from Mr. Kissinger. Mr.
Carlson's expense report from July 1986 states, `Briefing Session Dr. Henry Kissinger.'
"As Mr. [Alan] Stoga[*] stated, Kissinger Associates does not give free advice. The
National Bank of Georgia therefore must have been a client of Kissinger Associates.
After all, Mr. Kissinger knew Ghaith Pharoan's[**] father, an adviser to Saudi royal
family, and he knew Ghaith Pharoan for many years." [Congressman Henry Gonzalez,
Texas, Congressional Record, House of Representatives, April 28, 1992, Page: H2694-H2702]
[* Alan Stoga was chief economist at Kissinger Associates]
[** Ghaith Pharoan owned National Bank of Georgia]
Worse, another Kissinger Associate client, Banca Nazionale del Lavoro [BNL],
connect Kissinger to Saddam Hussein.
Here is more from Congressman's Gonzalez's testimony to the House:
"Several former employees of the Atlanta branch of BNL conspired to provide the
Government of Iraq with over $4 billion in unreported loans between 1985 and 1990.
They accomplished this massive fraud by keeping a secret set of accounting
records that concealed the over $4 billion in loans to Iraq.
...To date, several of the former employees have pleaded guilty to the conspiracy and
signing false financial statements. The former manager of BNL, Chris Drogoul, goes to
trial on June 2. He claims that the BNL management in Rome was aware of the loans to
Iraq and the United States and Italian Governments should have been aware of the
"The $4 billion plus in BNL loans to Iraq between 1985 and 1990 were crucial to Iraqi
efforts to feed its people and to build weapons of mass destruction. In addition, the
BNL loans were crucial to Reagan and Bush administration efforts to assist Saddam
"The procurement network, which operated through front companies situated in Europe
and the United States, used the BNL loans to supply Iraqi missile, chemical,
biological and nuclear weapons programs with industrial goods such as computer
controlled machine tools, computers, scientific instruments, special alloy steel and
aluminum, chemicals, and other industrial goods....
"Several of BNL's high level friends in the United States should have been aware of the
BNL loans to Iraq. The high level patrons that I am referring to are Henry Kissinger,
and his Kissinger Associates compadres, Brent Scowcroft and Lawrence
Eagleburger." [Gonzalez, ibid.]
Note that Kissinger was a paid member of BNL's advisory board.

THE ‘ARAB GATSBY’
AND HIS WASHINGTON PALS
By Maureen Dowd, The New York Times
WASHINGTON - Prince Bandar is known as the Arab Gatsby.
Rising from a murky past in a racist society, born in a Bedouin tent as the son of an
African palace servant impregnated by a Saudi prince, to a glamorous present as dean
of the Washington diplomatic corps.
Tossing glittery parties with celebrity entertainment at his sumptuous mansions in
Aspen and England’s Wychwood, a royal hunting ground once used by Norman and
Smoking cigars and bragging about his fighter-jock exploits – flying upside down 50 feet
above the ground – at parties at his McLean, Va. estate overlooking the Potomac,
“where there was more chilled vodka in little shot glasses than I’ve ever see,” as one
Flying off in his private Airbus to hunt birds in Spain with his friends former President
George H.W. Bush and Norman Schwarzkopf, entertaining the current President
Bush’s sister, Doro, at his Virginia farm, and palling around on the D.C. social circuit
with Dick Cheney, Colin Powell, George Tenet, Brent Scowcroft and Bob
Spinning a smoky web of intrigue with his cigars and CIA operations, helping finance
So if Bandar bin Sultan is Gatsby, his wife, Princess Haifa, must be like the careless
Daisy, her voice full of money that could have ended up supporting two of the Saudi
hijackers. And those 15 Saudi hijackers would be “the foul dust that floated in the
wake” of the Arab Gatsby’s dreams.
His new dream is that Saudi Arabia will help America get rid of Saddam, and then the
anger over Saudi involvement in 9/11 will fade and the cozy, oily alliance between the
countries can get back on track.
All the millions the Saudis have spent since 9/11 on a charm offensive could not save
them from Newsweek’s Michael Isikoff and Evan Thomas, who drew fresh tracks
between charitable checks Haifa wrote and two hijackers.
The princess says she feels as if a bomb has been dropped on her head – an
unfortunate metaphor given the fact that Saudi terrorists funded by Saudi charities
turned planes carrying innocent Americans into bombs.
She is rarely seen around Washington, abiding by Saudi customs sheltering women.
But she entertains at her many homes, and powerful friends – including Barbara Bush
and Alma Powell – called on Monday night to buck her up.
The case inflamed public suspicion that the Saudi government is more involved than it
admits, and that the Bushies are less zealous about getting to the bottom of the Saudi
role than they should be.
Some senators charge that the FBI has pulled its punches, and that the royal family, as
Richard Shelby puts it, has “got a lot of answering to do.”
Gen. Tommy Franks has already spent a fortune setting up a new base in Qatar
because the Saudis are still dithering about letting us use our old bases in their country.
Noncommittal on the future, and uncooperative on the past, the Saudis have been
stingy about helping the FBI with 9/11. The administration has helped the Saudis be
evasive, with Dick Cheney stonewalling congressional investigators.
It would probably be far easier for America to reduce its dependence on Saudi oil than
for the House of Saud and the House of Bush to untangle their decades-long
Bandar, the representative of an oil kingdom, is so close to the Bushes, an oil dynasty,
that they nicknamed him Bandar Bush. He contributed over $1 million to the Bush
presidential library. The former president is affiliated with the Carlyle Group, which
does extensive business with the Saudis...

Kissinger to advise
Hicks Muse on Europe
By Dane Hamilton
NEW YORK, May 31 (Reuters) - Former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger was
named European adviser to Hicks, Muse, Tate & Furst, the latest Washington power
broker to join a major U.S. private equity firm, the firm said.
Kissinger, considered the most influential foreign policy adviser to Presidents Richard
Nixon and Gerald Ford, is joining the European strategy board of Hicks Muse, a $10
billion fund based in Dallas, Hicks Muse announced....
New York-based Kissinger Associates gives geopolitical advice to financial firms
including J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., American International Group Inc., American
Express Co., Forstmann Little & Co. and others.
Private equity or buyout firms, which take large stakes in companies with the aim of
selling them at a profit later, often hire Washington insiders to open doors for potential
business transactions. The hard negotiations are done by the firms' financial engineers.
"Few people would not return Henry's phone call," said John Muse, founder and
partner in Hicks Muse, told Reuters. "Kissinger is very well known and connected in the
European landscape on history and economic development. He will help us get better
access and better information on people."
In recent years, large U.S. buyout firms like Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co., Carlyle
Group and Blackstone Group have targeted Europe as a new growth market to offset
a slump in the U.S. deal making market. Such firms have targeted corporate
divestitures as a key growth opportunity where Europe is considered farther behind
than the U.S. market.
Kissinger joins other top government officials at buyout firms, notably Washington-based Carlyle Group, a $13 billion fund whose roster of advisers includes former
President George Bush, ex-Secretary of State James Baker and former British Prime
Minister John Major...
Brian Mulroney, the former Canadian prime minister, is also adviser to Hicks Muse.

Briefing on Sept. 11th Terrorist Attacks
A Strange Intersection of
Bushes, bin Ladens
By Tom Brazaitis, The Cleveland Plain Dealer
Movie producers would reject the script as too implausible even for Hollywood.
Here's the bizarre plot twist: The father of the president of the United States stands
to profit from the war his son is waging against terrorists, and so does the family
of the leading terrorist.
Until recently, the Texas-based Bush political dynasty that produced two presidents and
the Saudi Arabian-based bin Laden family that spawned the FBI's most wanted terrorist
reaped dividends from the same source.
Details of the case of strange business bedfellows have dribbled out over the last
several months, raising at least the perception of conflicts of interest. But the Bush
family and the White House maintain there is no impropriety.
Critics do not contend that President George W. Bush is waging war for his family's
financial benefit. But they say the fact that the family stands to gain from any military
action puts the family in a compromising position, even if the circumstances are purely
Former President Bush is a senior adviser to the Carlyle Group, a private equity
company that buys failing defense and telecommunications enterprises and sells them
for a profit. Carlyle's investors have collected returns averaging 34 percent over the last
With assets of more than $12 billion, Carlyle is the 11th-largest defense contractor in
the United States. It owns companies making tanks, aircraft wings and other military
Bush reportedly gets $80,000 to $100,000 for each of a half-dozen or more speeches
he delivers for the Carlyle Group each year, and takes payment in Carlyle stock.
How much the former president's stake is worth can't be determined because Carlyle's
business dealings are private. An aide to the former president answered "no comment"
to questions about his Carlyle compensation.
Until recently, the family of Osama bin Laden, the suspected mastermind of the Sept.
11 terrorist strikes against the United States, held at least $2 million in Carlyle stock.
The family, which has publicly disavowed its black sheep, Osama, agreed to sell its
Carlyle holdings last month to quash negative publicity. Details of this and the other
relationships had been in reported publications including the New York Times and the
Wall Street Journal.
Former President Bush has no such qualms about his relationship with Carlyle.
The former president's close ties with the ruling royal family of Saudi Arabia and with
leaders in Korea and other Asian nations reportedly helped Carlyle attract wealthy
President George W. Bush himself has been a beneficiary of Carlyle's largesse. In
1990, before the younger Bush ran for governor of Texas, Carlyle put him on the board
of directors of its subsidiary Caterair, an airline catering company.
The younger Bush also had a tenuous connection to the bin Laden family. In 1979,
James Bath, a close friend, gave Bush $50,000 for a 5 percent stake in Arbusto
Energy, Bush's first business. Bath was the U.S. business representative for Salem
bin Laden, one of Osama's brothers, who headed the family's business enterprises. It
has been speculated that Bath invested the bin Ladens' money, but the White House
recently denied this, saying Bath invested his own money.
As governor, Bush appointed the board that managed the Texas teachers pension
fund. Last November, the board voted to invest $100 million in Carlyle. The University
of Texas has invested $15.6 million in funds managed by the Carlyle Group.
Tucker Eskew, a White House spokesman, said, "There is absolutely no conflict of
interest in the view of the White House or any credible source that we're aware of."
Not everyone shares that view.
Judicial Watch, a self-described public-interest law firm that investigates and
prosecutes government abuse and corruption, has called on the former president to cut
his ties to the Carlyle Group.
Judicial Watch's criticism of the Bushes is noteworthy because the group was one of
the chief antagonists of the Clinton administration.
Tom Fitton, president of the watchdog group, said, "It's an obvious conflict of interest.
It's a unique situation where you have the president's father, an ex-president, out there
negotiating and dealing with foreign governments and advising foreign entities. It just
leads to confusion. Does he speak for the Carlyle Group or for the government of the
United States? Obviously, the Carlyle Group benefits from that confusion. Otherwise,
they wouldn't have hired him."
Fitton said the bin Laden family's withdrawal from the Carlyle Group is a good thing, but
doesn't absolve the former president.
Another Carlyle principal with ties to both Bushes is James A. Baker, the secretary of
state in the first Bush administration, and the point man for George W. Bush during his
legal fight with Al Gore last year over Florida's presidential votes. Baker holds the title of
senior counselor for Carlyle.
Carlyle's president is Frank Carlucci, who was defense secretary in the Reagan
administration. Carlucci was a college roommate of the current defense secretary,
Carlucci is open about his discussions with Rumsfeld on Pentagon politics, but he told
the New York Times, "I've made it clear I don't lobby the defense industry. I will give
our Carlyle bankers' advice on what they might do and who they should talk to. But I do
not pick up the phone and say, 'You should fund X, Y or Z.' "...
Henry Kissinger, who was secretary of state and national security adviser for
Presidents Nixon and Ford, started a consulting firm that has made him a
multimillionaire since he left government service....
What makes the Bushes' situation unique, Eisner said, is the father-son connection,
coupled with the ongoing war on terrorism.
"The revolving door makes it possible for current government officials, including the
president of the United States, to profit from decisions that take place now, especially
when his father, the former president, advises a company which has major defense
contracts," said Eisner.

From Diplomacy by Deception, by Dr. John Coleman (copyright 1993):
President George Bush also deserves a special mention. Probably Bush is the most
accomplished president ever to conduct diplomacy by deception, and there are many
case histories to prove the statement.
The problem with Americans is that we believe that the United States Government is
more honest, moral and open about its dealings than foreign governments. We have
been taught this since childhood. George Bush proved this in a one hundred percent
The scenario for the Gulf War was actually drawn up in the 1970s. This was almost
blown wide open by several newspaper articles in which James McCartney reported “A
U.S. Secret Agenda.”
According to McCartney, the secret government of the United States decided
early in 1970 to base its policy for the Middle East on the control of oil in the
region being wrested from the Arabs.
A pretext had to be found to establish a substantial U.S. military presence in that
region – but not in Israel.
Robert Tucker, writing in the Jewish magazine “Commentary” of January 1975, said
that the United States must overcome any reticence about armed intervention in other
countries, and he specifically mentioned the Persian Gulf region in this context. Tucker
said what was needed was a preemptive strike to establish control of Middle East oil,
and not wait for some crisis to pop up before acting.
Apparently one of the architects of this brazen notion was Bush, who followed the
beliefs of James Atkins, U.S. ambassador to Saudi Arabia from October of 1973 to
December 1975. Akins’ views formed the basis of the Reagan-Bush administration
policies, and it is interesting to note that the script ostensibly written by Akins was
followed exactly by George Bush when he engaged America in an illegal war against
Subsequent investigations turned up the fact that Akins had merely been reading from
a Henry Kissinger script, which Kissinger wrote under the title “Energy Security.”
Kissinger at first advocated a direct assault on Saudi Arabia, but the plan was modified,
and a smaller nation was substituted for Saudi Arabia.
Kissinger reasoned that seizing Middle East oil as a preventative measure would be
acceptable to the people of the United States, and an idea that could easily be sold to
the Congress. According to my source in Washington, the idea was accepted with
alacrity by Bush, who had plenty of experience in deception and his stint at the CIA
sharpened his appetite for what some say is his natural bent.
The Kissinger “Energy Security” plan was taken up by Bush and applied to Iraq.
There is a strong belief that the quarrel between Iraq and Kuwait over the Al Sabah’s
theft of oil from the Rumalia oilfields, and the sabotaging of Iraq’s economy by
underselling the stolen oil below the OPEC price, was worked out by the CIA in
conjunction with Kissinger Associates....
Just when Bush thought he had the game in his bag, King Hussein of Jordan almost
threw a spanner in the works. According to my intelligence source, and subsequently
confirmed by Pierre Salinger of ABC Television, King Hussein believed that the United
States was acting in good faith and would welcome a settlement of the Iraq-Kuwait
crisis by peaceful means rather than by armed conflict.
Proceeding on the basis of his belief in the integrity of the Bush administration, Hussein
called Baghdad and asked President Hussein to submit the quarrel to the Arab
nations for arbitration.
King Hussein assured Saddam Hussein that he had the blessing of Washington
for such a move.
On August 3, the Iraqi military advance toward the Kuwait border was halted so that the
proposed arbitration could be given a chance. But Saddam Hussein had one other
condition: Egypt’s dictator, Hosni Mubarak would have to agree to the arbitration
King Hussein called Mubarak, who readily gave his assent to the plan. Next, King
Hussein called President Bush, who took the call in Air Force I, while en route to
Aspen to meet Margaret Thatcher, who was sent to deliver the Royal Institute for
International Affairs ultimatum that U.S. military forces attack Iraq.
According to intelligence sources, partly confirmed by Salinger, Bush was enthusiastic
about King Hussein’s initiative and promised the Jordanian ruler that the U.S. would not
But once King Hussein terminated the conversation, Bush called Mubarak and told
him not to take part in any inter-Arab arbitration discussions. Bush is reported to
have called Thatcher and advised her of his conversation with King Hussein.
Like Chamberlain at the time of Munich, King Hussein was going to find out that a
peaceful settlement of the Iraq-Kuwait dispute was the last thing that the
American and British governments wanted.
After getting approval from Thatcher, Bush reportedly called Mubarak again and
ordered him to do everything possible to derail the Arab mediation effort.
The payoff, as we now know, came later, when Bush illegally “forgave” Egypt’s $7
billion debt to the United States.
Bush did not have the constitutional authority to forgive Egypt’s debt. With Mubarak
violently denouncing the mediation proposals, Bush began making threatening noises
It was only a few hours after King Hussein told President Hussein that they had
both been deceived, that the Iraqi Army crossed the border with Kuwait.
The role of the United States and Britain in starting the war against Iraq is classic
diplomacy by deception. While talking peace in the Middle East, our government
that we so unwisely trust, had been planning for the war against Iraq since the
The Gulf War was deliberately contrived in accordance with Kissinger’s policy...

Kissinger Appointed Advisor to Indonesia
(not a satire)
By Terry J. Allen, In These Times (Chicago, U.S.)
Asked why he quit writing satirical songs, Tom Lehrer replied that after Henry
Kissinger won the 1973 Nobel Peace Prize, there was nothing left to satirize. Lehrer
may have underestimated Dr. K's spirited sense of irony.
This February, the former U.S. secretary of state accepted Indonesian President
Abdurrahman Wahid's invitation to become an unpaid adviser to the Indonesian
government. Kissinger accepted "out of friendship for the Indonesian people and the
importance I attach to the Indonesian nation."
Twenty-five years earlier, on December 6, 1975, Kissinger -- along with President
Gerald Ford -- paid another friendly visit to Jakarta. The next day, as Air Force One
cleared Indonesian air space, President Suharto launched some 10,000 troops on a
full-scale attack of East Timor. The goal was to conquer and annex the fledgling
nation, which had just been granted independence by Portugal.
Kissinger now calls the atrocities that accompanied and followed the invasion - 200,000
dead - "regrettable."...
Kissinger sits on the board of New Orleans-based Freeport McMoRan Gold and
Copper, the majority shareholder in the massive mining operation, which also happens
to be Indonesia's biggest taxpayer. Friends and family of Suharto, who was ousted in
1998, still hold much of the minority stake in the mine...
During Suharto's 32-year reign, the military, armed with U.S. equipment, burned and
strafed villages in an unsuccessful scorched earth campaign to eradicate a tiny band of
The army reportedly has used Freeport company buses to haul away protesters, and
West Papuans have been imprisoned in Freeport chipping containers. Freeport Vice
President Paul Murphy vouched for the mine's innocence: Company equipment, he
said, was commandeered by the military.
"For years Papuans saw the Indonesian military coming in Freeport helicopters,
boats, trucks and Jeeps," a U.S. missionary told Time magazine. "So it's hard for
them to see the difference."
The mining company also has touted its "exemplary" environmental practices. However,
both international and local organizations have accused Freeport of massive pollution.
West Papua's Environmental Impact Management Agency says that the operation has
contaminated 514 square miles. Freeport officials insist that the devastated area is
only 51 square miles and will soon blossom forth with bananas and pineapples.
While admitting that it dumps 220,000 tons of gravel tailings every day directly
into the murky Aghawagon River, Freeport insists the water is safe and that the
local hunter gatherers have failed to provide scientific studies to back up their
claims that fish and shellfish -- and the people who eat them -- are being
poisoned by metal from the tailings. Nor have they proven that Freeport's huge
mountains of stored tailings may be leeching into the groundwater.
While all agree that the mining operation has brought with it many of the accoutrements
of 20th-century progress, some of the beneficiaries are less than grateful. They charge
that economic change, including patterns of land use and ownership, have undermined
indigenous cultures and spawned an epidemic of alcoholism.
All this unrest no doubt makes Kissinger and fellow Freeport board members nervous.
In his new role of adviser, the former secretary of state promised to hold regular phone
discussions with senior government ministers and to visit Jakarta annually.
Accepting his appointment and calling himself "a patriotic American,"Kissinger said "the
role of Freeport in Indonesia must be a strictly commercial one and must be to the
mutual benefit of Indonesia and Freeport."
But he promised not to interfere in Indonesian politics (wink, wink)....

The Suharto--U.S. Corporate Connection
From Corporate Predators
The sudden exit of Suharto from the Indonesian presidency has cast the international
spotlight on the crony capitalism that enabled Suharto and his family to amass a fortune
estimated to be on the order of $40 billion.
Bribery and graft, sweetheart government contracts, government-protected monopolies
and a host of other schemes made the Suharto family and a small coterie of close
friends into billionaires.
Much less noted are the ways in which the Suharto regime facilitated super-profitmaking by foreign multinational corporations which eagerly accepted benefits
and protections from Suharto’s brutal dictatorship.
Foreign multinational corporations benefitted from the twin pillars of the Suharto
economic program: unsustainable extraction of Indonesia’s rich natural resources and
unabashed exploitation of poor, unorganized Indonesian workers.
Consider the New Orleans-based Freeport McMoRan, which operates the world’s
largest gold mine and third largest copper mine in Irian Jaya, the Indonesia side of the
island of New Guinea. The company has ripped the top 500 feet off Puncuk Jaya
Mountain, sifting through the dirt for copper and gold. After crushing the ore, mixing it
with water and dousing the mix with chemicals to bring the metals to the surface,
Freeport dumps the resultant waste rock – more than 100,000 tons a day — into
Those rivers are the lifeblood of downstream communities of thousands of indigenous
people. Environmentalists and the indigenous people themselves charge the rock
waste has poisoned the water, killing fish and the riverside forest and making massive
flood plains inhospitable to crops. Freeport denies the charges.
But the Amungme and Komoro peoples are angry enough to have organized ongoing
The Indonesian military has met those protests with an iron fist, beating, torturing
and killing many of the indigenous protesters.
Freeport denies any responsibility for the military’s human rights abuses of the
protesters, and also denies charges that it has assisted the repression.
The Freeport-McMoRan controversy is typical of resource controversies in Indonesia,
with local communities fighting against pillage of their resources and pollution of their
lands and water by big national and multinational mining, oil and timber companies
operating with the protection of the Indonesian military.

Documents Detailing Role of Kissinger
and Ford in 1975 Invasion Released
ETAN Vol. 8, No. 1
U.S. support for the occupation of East Timor led to the formation of ETAN over a
decade ago. More details of U.S. complicity in Indonesia’s illegal annexation of East
Timor were made public on the 26th anniversary of the invasion.
On 7 December 2001, researchers released previously-classified United States
government documents which proved what many had known for years: the U.S. was
informed in advance of Indonesia’s plans and approved them at the highest levels.
The information, which included transcripts of two 1975 meetings between President
Gerald Ford and Indonesian dictator Suharto, was obtained through the U.S. Freedom
of Information Act and made public by the National Security Archive, a
Washington-based non-governmental organization....

unsavory career (as detailed in Christopher Hitchens’ book The Trial of Henry
Kissinger), including his orchestration of the illegal bombing of Laos and Cambodia

From The Conspirators’ Hierarchy: The Committee of 300, 4th ed., copyright 1997, by
Dr. John Coleman:
The Committee of 300
In what is in fact an open conspiracy against God and man, (to use the words of H.G.
Wells), which includes enslaving the majority of humans left on earth after wars,
plagues and mass murder have done with them, is indeed becoming more open. In the
intelligence community, it is taught that the best way to hide something is to place
it in open view....
The upper-level parallel secret government does not operate from dank basements and
secret underground chambers. It places itself in full view in the White House,
Congress, in Number 10 Downing Street and the Houses of Parliament....
These men are IN OPEN VIEW.
These men are the servants of the One World Government–New World Order.
Like the rapist who stops to offer his victim a friendly ride, he does not LOOK like the
monster his is. . . . The same applies to government at all levels.
Former President George Bush does not LOOK like a dutiful servant of the upper-level
parallel government, but make no mistake about it, he is as much a MONSTER as are
those horrors found in horror-movies.
Stop for a moment and consider how President Bush ordered the brutal slaying of
150,000 Iraqi troops, in a convoy of military vehicles carrying white flags, on their way
back to Iraq under Geneva Convention rules of agreed disengagement and withdrawal.
Imagine the horror of the Iraqi troops when, in spite of waving their white flags, they
were mowed down by American aircraft. In another part of the front, 12,000 Iraqi
soldiers were buried alive in trenches they occupied.
Is that not MONSTROUS in the truest sense of the word?
From where did President Bush get his orders to act in this MONSTROUS fashion? He
got them from the Royal Institute for International Affairs (RIIA) who received its
mandate from the Committee of 300, also known as the “Olympians.”
As we shall see, even the “Olympians” do not hide their faces. Often times they put on
a show which could be likened to the Paris Air Show, even as conspiracy buffs spend
their time in a fruitless search of the wrong places and in the wrong direction.
Have you ever notice how Queen Elizabeth II performs the ceremonial opening of the
British Parliament? There, in full view, is the head of the Committee of 300.
Have you ever witnessed a swearing-in ceremony of a United States President? There,
in full view, is another member of the Committee of 300.
The problem is only one of perception. . . .
The problem is that real hard information on the treasonous activities of members of the
invisible government is very hard to come by. I quote the profound statement made by
the prophet Hosea, which is found in the Christian Bible:
“My people perish for lack of knowledge.”
~ ~ ~
After President Ronald Reagan was elected, an important meeting was held in
Washington, D.C. in December 1980, under the auspices of the Club of Rome and the
Socialist International. Both of these organizations are directly responsible to the
Committee of 300. The main agenda was to formulate ways and means of how to
neutralize the Reagan presidency....
In order to get an idea of how vast and how all-pervasive is this conspiracy, it would be
appropriate at this point to name the goals set by the Committee of 300 for the pending
conquest and control of the world. There are at least 40 known “branch offices” of the
Committee of 300, and we shall be listing them all, together with a description of their
functions. Once this is studied, it becomes easy to understand how one central
conspiratorial body is able to operate so successfully...
Thanks to the sworn testimony of Geruzoni, Italy and Europe – but not the United
States – learned that Kissinger was behind the death of Aldo Moro. This tragic affair
demonstrates the ability of the Committee of 300 to impose its will upon any
government without exception....
Kissinger’s role in destabilizing the United States by means of three wars, the Middle
East, Korea and Vietnam, is well known, as is his role in the Gulf War, in which the U.S.
Army acted as mercenaries for the Committee of 300 in bringing Kuwait back under its
control and at the same time making an example out of Iraq so that other small nations
would not be tempted to work out their own destiny.
Kissinger also threatened the late Ali Bhutto, President of the sovereign nation of
Pakistan. Bhutto’s “crime” was that he favored nuclear weapons for his country. As a
Moslem state, Bhutto felt that Pakistan was threatened by what he called “continued
Israeli aggression in the Middle East.” Bhutto was judicially executed in 1979 by a
Council on Foreign Relations representative in the country, General Zia ul Haq.
In his planned ascent to power, ul Haq encouraged a frenzied mob to set fire to the
U.S. embassy in Islamabad, in an apparent attempt to show the CFR that he was his
own man and to secure more foreign aid and, it was later learned, to murder Richard
Several years later, ul Haq paid with his life for intervening in the war raging in
Afghanistan. His C-130 Hercules aircraft was hit by an extremely low frequence (ELF)
electromagnetic energy shot shortly after it took off, causing the aircraft to loop into the
The Club of Rome, acting on Committee of 300 orders to eliminate General ul Haq, had
no compunction in sacrificing the lives of a number of U.S. servicemen on board the
flight, including a U.S. Army Defense Intelligence Agency group headed by Brig. Gen.

The Round Table was established in South Africa by Cecil Rhodes and funded by the
English Rothschild family. Its purpose was to train business leaders loyal to the
monarch, who would secure the vast gold and diamond treasures for the British Crown.
South Africans had their birthright stolen from them in a coup so massive and all-pervading, it was apparent that only a central unified command could have pulled it off.
That unified command was The Committee of 300.
That this was accomplished is not in dispute. By the early 1930s, the British Crown had
a stranglehold on the biggest gold and diamond fields ever found in the world.
Now the Committee of 300 had at its disposal both the vast fortune coming from the
drug trade and the equally vast fortune of the mineral and metal wealth of South Africa.
Financial control of the world was complete....

Round Tablers fanned out throughout the world to take control of fiscal and monetary
policies and political leadership in all countries where they operated. . . .
In the United States, in later years, the task of boring away at the United States from
the inside, fell to William Yandell Elliot, the man who spawned Henry Kissinger and who
was responsible for Kissinger’s meteoric rise to power as chief United States advisor to
the Committee of 300....

Why Kennedy was Murdered
The history of the Kennedy family is too well know to have to go over it here. Suffice to
say that the Kennedy’s had a reputation of being Irish rebels; “Old Joe,” John’s father,
was recalled from his post as U.S. ambassador in London, after the British Government
complained that Kennedy was publicly backing the German war effort.
Roosevelt, the servant of the international bankers who start all wars and profit
enormously from them, obeyed his instructions. Joe Kennedy did not forgive nor forget
and he and his sons vowed that they would never be as meek and servile as Roosevelt
had proved to be, when one of them became the President of the United States.
When John F. Kennedy was elected to the White House, he thought it was his own
doing. The master puppeteers had kept a low profile, not wishing to spook the young,
headstrong John Kennedy. The ruling elite body known as the “Committee of 300" ...
gently at first, but with increasing impatience, led Kennedy slowly to accept the unseen
halter they had placed around his neck.
When Kennedy did become aware of the halter – and it came slowly at first – the young
president vowed he would remove it. Kennedy was incensed to think that a British
institution, the Royal Institute for International Affairs (RIIA) was actually exercising
control over his presidency and indeed over the entire U.S., as his investigations were
Kennedy’s resolve to cast off foreign control of his presidency, hardened during the
Cuban missile crisis; more particularly when he discovered that he had been
hoodwinked by Khrushchev, with the assistance of the RIIA and his own White House
When Kennedy ordered a review of what had led up to the Cuban missile fiasco, (and
the result of the review pointed a finger of guilt at the palace guard and particularly at
Henry Kissinger,) the president told Mrs. Kennedy that Kissinger was “a madman” and
that he had given instructions to ban him from the White House.
The effect of the Kissinger ban was a serious blow to “300" plans, as Kissinger was
their main conduit for instructional “advice” for the President from the RIIA, a top
executive branch of the “300".
(In passing, it is worthwhile mentioning that Kissinger later went on to play the main role
in the downfall of President Richard Nixon.)
Clearly, the president’s ban on Kissinger was a serious communications break in the
“special relationship” between the British and the U.S., which could not be tolerated by
the “300.” The unmasking of Kissinger as a messenger for the RIIA, came through
Soviet defector master spy, Oleg Penkovshy.
Palace guard chieftain and agent in place for MI6, McGeorge Bundy, blocked
Penkovsky from direct access to President Kennedy . . . But those who were fighting
McGeorge Bundy’s ban were able to smuggle documents into the White House which
were given directly to Kennedy. Once he’d had the opportunity to study the documents,
Kennedy saw how badly he had been betrayed by his advisors, and particularly by
Kissinger, and just how far “300" control was exercised over his country.
As part of his discovery, Kennedy gave orders that U.S. involvement in South Vietnam
should end as soon as it was practicable to get U.S. troops shipped home.
It was at that point that Kennedy decided to hit the international banks owned by the
“300" where it hurt the most: their control of the Federal Reserve Bank system....
Kennedy had ordered a review of the Federal Reserve . . . Kennedy then issued an
executive order to return constitutional money to the United States. He signed an
executive order calling for the Treasury to print and issue directly, United States dollars,
as opposed to Federal Reserve notes, thus bypassing the Federal Reserve banks....
Kennedy’s decision to bypass the Federal Reserve Banks caused consternation in
Washington and London. Shortly after the executive order to issue U.S. currency was
given, a high-level meeting of Committee of 300 functionaries was held to deal with this
threat to the foundation upon which control of the United States rested: The Federal
Reserve System and its Federal Reserve Banks....
Intelligence sources told me that former Governor of Texas John Connally, provided an
added “bonus” for the plotters, and may be why the final choice for the place of public
execution fell to Dallas. Connally had long been urging a more evenhanded policy
toward the Arab world. At the time of the shooting, he was openly advocating and
urging a change in the U.S. Middle East policy, which did not sit well with the petroleum
Both the execution of Kennedy and the disgracing of Nixon were cynical acts of brutal
terror designed to demonstrate the power and the reach of the “300", and to strike fear
into the hearts of American politicians.
The job of getting rid of Kennedy was given to Sir William Stephenson, former head of
the North American Desk of MI6, Britain’s supersecret intelligence agency. It was
Stephenson who met with President Roosevelt in 1938 as the personal representative
of Winston Churchill....
To help him carry out the Kennedy execution, Stephenson co-opted his former right
hand man of the OSS days, a certain Major Mortimer Louis Bloomfield, a Canadian
citizen. Bloomfield was appointed by Stephenson to run Division Five, the FBI’s
counterintelligence service and he retained that position right up to the end of WWII....
Both Stephenson and Bloomfield were members of SOE and MI6 whose exploits were
fictionally portrayed in “James Bond” movies. While Bond’s exploits were fiction based
on fact, the organization was, and still is, a fact of life. The spy agency is not
responsible to the British Parliament and its activities are financed out of the monarch’s
Bloomfield assisted Stephenson in planning and executing the most successful
assassination and subsequent cover-up in the history of the world....
The order went out, “assassinate Kennedy,” soon after Kissinger was kicked out of
the Oval Office and after Kennedy had made his intentions known about ending U.S.
involvement in Vietnam and breaking the monopoly of the Federal Reserve....
From Diplomacy by Deception, by Dr. John Coleman:
Panama: The Naked Truth
It was increasingly clear to the drug money laundering bankers in the United States that
in Panama they had a winner. With that understanding came great concern that the
money launderers had to have an asset in place in Panama whom they could control. . .
The DEA estimates that $6 billion a year finds its way from the United States to
Panama. Coudert Brothers, the Committee of 300 “mob” lawyers for the Eastern
Liberal Establishment, began steps that would ensure that another Arnulfo Arias did not
threaten the increasingly lucrative cocaine business bursting their Panamanian banks
The man Coudert Brothers chose to oversee the Panama negotiations with Torrijos was
one of their own. Sol Linowitz. . . .
A partner in Coudert Brothers, director of Xerox, Pan American Airlines and the Marine
Midland Bank, Linowitz had all the credentials needed to pull off what Rockefeller had
in mind, i.e.: to seize the entire Panama Canal Zone. . . .
Thanks to the treasonous conduct of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and in
particular, the conduct of Senators Dennis De Concini and Richard Lugar, Panama
passed into the hands of Gen. Torrijos and the Committee of 300 at a cost of billions of
dollars to the U.S. taxpayers. But Torrijos, like so many of us mortals, seemed to lose
sight of the fact of his maker, in his case, the “Olympians.”...
Panama must be seen through the eyes of Trojan Horse Kissinger, that is to say, we
must look at it as pivotal to Central America as Kissinger’s future killing grounds for
thousands of American soldiers.
Kissinger’s orders were to get another “Vietnam War” going in Central America...
