Media campaign against Lyndon LaRouche
« Reply #26 on: January 20, 2019, 11:50:23 am »
One of the most important sources for this thread is the media network of Lyndon LaRouche.
Lyndon LaRouche is also a good source on many other “conspiracy” topics like enslaving whole continent by debt by the World Bank and IMF: https://3169.createaforum.com/firestarter-on-fire/world-bank-and-imf-destroy-economies-or-modern-day-slavery/msg2784/#msg2784

Herbert Quinde breaks down the media campaign against Lyndon LaRouche and the NCLC.
The campaign was orchestrated by New York financier John Train.

Michael Hudson described meetings involving Train and 25 other journalists to Herbert Quinde in 1984, to:
coordinate national magazine stuff about you guys and [work] with federal law enforcement to deny you funding and tax exemption

Sol Sanders, former editor of Business Week and founder of the Committee for a Free World, told that 2 defamatory broadcasts against LaRouche by NBC-TV in January and March 1984 were planned at a meeting he attended at John Train's residence.
The participants, according to Sanders, included Pat Lynch (producer of NBC-TV), Dennis King, and about 25 other journalists.

Ellen Hume wrote a derogatory article concerning LaRouche in the 23 March 1986 Wall Street Journal.
Hume stated that she had attended a meeting at John Train's concerning LaRouche; sources for her article were Patricia Lynch and law enforcement.

Mira Boland, Washington Fact-Finding Director of the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith (ADL), testified that she attended a meeting concerning Lyndon LaRouche at John Train's residence in 1984. Boland testified that Roy Godson and Patricia Lynch were present at this meeting. They discussed LaRouche's lawsuit against NBC.

Richard Morris testified that the most vocal opponents of LaRouche were Kenneth DeGraffenreid, Walter Raymond, and Roy Godson.

Dennis King, a Train meeting participant and a crucial resource to the government's investigation, received funding for his activities against LaRouche from the Smith-Richardson Foundation.

By 1985, Roy Godson and Terry Slease (the attorney for Richard Mellon Scaife that was also in the Train salon meetings), were tasked by Oliver North to raise funds from private citizens for use in the Contra and public diplomacy efforts.
In May 1986, NSC and State Department operatives Lewis, Howard, and Tucker were being interviewed under NSC auspices because they had "good information" on LaRouche. Around the same time, North met Arthur Arundel and Lt. Col. Olmstead, both of whom were extremely active in publicity operations against LaRouche.

See a small sample of slander articles by the Train salon: https://larouchepac.com/sites/default/files/slander-campaign.jpg

The ADL played a central role in the prosecution of LaRouche and was represented at the Train meetings.
Carl Gershman, a former staff member of the ADL, became the President of Reagan’s National Endowment for Democracy (NED).
John Rees, who was present in the Train meetings and Irwin Suall of the ADL, testified against LaRouche in May 1986.

Ronald Radosh, the co-author of the 1984 New Republic piece with Dennis King, travelled to Central America under the auspices of the Puebla Institute.
Russ Bellant is the author of articles appearing in November 1988, and asserted that the Puebla Institute was a front for CIA and NSC propaganda run under Oliver North.

In 1982, President of Mexico Lopez Portillo had talked to LaRouche in an effort to get rid of the debt dictatorship by the World Bank and IMF, which had sent a "shock wave" through Washington.
Leo Cherne told that he chaired a task force at PFIAB on Third World debt that had been established through William Casey in reaction to Mexico's repudiation of its debt in 1982.

Eugene Methvin, who authored the Reader's Digest article against LaRouche in August 1986, is a Co-Chairman of the Nathan Hale Institute and at the time a commissioner on President Reagan's Commission on Organized Crime.
Methvin called for private organizations together with the Government to combat subversive threats, including derogatory materials in the media. He cited the ADL as "the prototype attack group" for such operations.
Methvin has campaigned for an end to legal restrictions on government counteraction activities against “subversive threats”, pointing to the FBI's former COINTELPRO program as "a model of sophisticated, effective counter-terrorist law enforcement": http://www.geocities.ws/berletwatch/qa.htm

Drug traffickers in Britain and the Netherlands
« Reply #27 on: January 21, 2019, 12:05:53 pm »
The following posts involve stories in which my home country the Netherlands is involved.
In this post some stories on drug traffickers working for the government as “informers” in Britain and the Netherlands.

Baybasin – Netherlands and Britain
In July 2002, in the Netherlands the Kurdish Turk Huseyin Baybasin was sentenced in appeal to life in prison for running a “violent” criminal organisation that was involved in murder, extortion, kidnapping and heroin trafficking in the Netherlands, Turkey and the US.
He was convicted based on (falsified?) tapes of telephone conversations and stabbed in the back by his own attorneys (in Dutch): http://uitspraken.rechtspraak.nl/inziendocument?id=ECLI:NL:GHSHE:2002:AE5920

The Baybasins had information on high-ranking members of the Dutch, British and Turkish government involved in the £25 billion heroin trade.

By 1998, the Baybasin family was making millions from exporting heroin to Europe.
Huseyin Baybasin settled in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
Reportedly his crime organisation also extorted up to £10,000 a year from shopkeepers and other small businessmen.

In March 2001, his brother Abdullah pleaded guilty to drug importation and in 2006 was sentenced to 22 years in prison.
Six members of his gang were jailed to a total of 68 years after pleading guilty to offences involving guns, violence, extortion and blackmail: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/4787088.stm

The Baybasins were already notorious across Europe, the Middle East and Central Asia when they were invited to move from Turkey to the Netherlands and Britain.

In either late 1994 or early 1995, Abdullah Baybasin was encouraged by Customs to come to the UK where he settled in London. Huseyin Baybasin agreed to tell Customs investigators what he knew about the involvement of the Turkish authorities in the international heroin trade.
Baybasin and his gang entered the country illegally using forged Dutch passports, and had no problems setting up business. Abdullah Baybasin claimed asylum in Britain and was given preferential treatment because he was an informant for Customs and Excise.
Michael Howard was home secretary at the time.

The Baybasin Cartel was linked to up to 25 murders.
Several other relatives also lived in Britain, including 2 other brothers, Sirin and Mesut Baybasin. Sirin was once extradited from Spain to Italy to stand trial on drug smuggling charges but acquitted: https://www.theguardian.com/uk/2006/mar/28/ukcrime.drugsandalcohol
(archived here: http://archive.is/pFJch)

Ayhan Kurt - Britain
Another major drug smuggler, Ayhan Kurt, was released by the British authorities because he was working for MI5 and Turkish military intelligence.
Kurt had escaped justice, a month after in August 2002 being caught with 70 kilos of heroin. He had earlier avoided prosecution in 1998 and had his visa renewed despite being connected to 20 kilos of heroin concealed in a car.

In January 1998, Kurt was arrested in a London hotel room with 7 kilos of heroin and £143,000 in cash. Charges were later dropped after he promised “to name an informant in a case".
In 2002, Kurt and his partner Recep Yilmaz, imported 200-300 kilos heroin a month. In 2002, Kurt was arrested for possession of heroin but was not charged due to "insufficient evidence".
In 2004 (after he fled Britain), he was still smuggling 80 kilos a month into Britain.

Two British men, David Powell and John Rae, were sentenced to respectively 17 and 11 years in a conspiracy to supply heroin.  Powell and Rae admitted they were smuggling cigarettes but that Kurt had set them up by replacing the cigarettes with heroin.
The Court of Appeal quashed the original convictions after it was revealed that prosecution didn’t disclose information about Kurt and his associate, Abdullah Baybasin: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/7205508.stm

John Haase - Britain
Drugs baron John Haase told Labour MP Peter Kilfoyle that he was released from prison early after making a payment of £400,000 to former Home Secretary Michael Howard's cousin Simon Bakerman.

Haase and his nephew Paul Bennett were arrested in July 1993 for an international drug trafficking operation.
After they were jailed in 1995, the judge wrote privately to Howard asking for a royal pardon, because they had offered to become informants for Customs and Excise and their lives “would be at risk”.

Home Secretary Howard approved the “Royal Prerogative of Mercy” and cut their sentences from 18 to 5 years.
They were released in July 1996 (after the payment of £400,000) -  10 months and 2 weeks after being sentenced: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1082269/Michael-Howard-drugs-baron-extraordinary-400-000-bribery-claim.html

IRT affair – Netherlands
The IRT affair in the Netherlands also involved drug trafficking with the participation of the police.
In 1995, Mink K was convicted of weapons possession and cocaine trafficking. He was released on appeal, due to a legal technicality.
Mink K had connections with the US DEA agent Robert Nieves that was linked to the cocaine importing network of the CIA and the Contras.

The Lockerbie bombing, “investigated” by amongst others Robert Mueller, was to cover-up a drug scandal: http://aangirfan.blogspot.nl/2010/01/holland-usa-drugs-gonsalves-mink-k.html

IRT affair – Bas van Hout
« Reply #28 on: January 22, 2019, 11:37:38 am »
I’ve looked for more information on the connection between Dutch drug trafficker Mink Kok and US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) officer - Robert Nieves.

From 1985 to 1989, Nieves was the handler of Norwin "El Perico" Meneses the Cali cartel's representative in Nicaragua who was indicted on cocaine trafficking charges in the US in 1989, and arrested and sentenced to 12 years in Nicaragua in 1991.
In 1995, Nieves served as chief of the DEA's International Division, which was responsible for the DEA input in the IRT affair. Shortly after leaving the agency, Bob Nieves joined Guardian Technologies, a security consulting service and body armour manufacturing company based in Virginia and owned by Olivier North and Joe Fernandez (former CIA chief of station in Costa Rica from 1984 to 1986, who was also an integral part of the Contra supply network).

Mink Kok was arrested by the French police and extradited to Belgium in mid-1998. He was released on bail after only 2 weeks of detention, and returned to the Netherlands (after making a deal).
The IRT operation was suspended in December 1993
F. Lenaers (of the Belgian weapons manufacturer, Fabrique National (FN)) concluded that some of the guns had been ordered from FN by a US government agency: https://www.mail-archive.com/ctrl@listserv.aol.com/msg36999.html

Gary Webb’s book, confirms that Robert J. Nieves was the control agent of Norwin Meneses throughout most of the 1980s.
Joseph Kelso said that Nieves had been skimming cocaine from seizures made by the Costa Rican narcotics police. In 1986, Kelso had "hard-core, documentable, bring-it-into-court information" on Nieves, including 6 witnesses willing to testify that the DEA agents were skimming cocaine, making counterfeit money, sanitising intelligence reports to Washington, and protecting cocaine processing labs in northern Costa Rica.
At the time DEA agents Nieves and Gonzalez were stationed in Costa Rica, the CIA station chief was Joe Fernandez, a close friend and confidant of Oliver North.

When I looked for “evidence” on the connection between Mink Kok and Robert Nieves I found a book in Dutch by journalist Bas van Hout , who intentionally kept the most important information out of the book.
Other problems with this book are that there is no reference list and he uses fake names, while giving the impression that most of the names in the book are “real”.

The starting point of the book is Klaas Bruinsma’s drug organisation, but (officially) the IRT-affair really only started after “drug lord” Klaas Bruinsma was assassinated.

The most important person in the book appears to be FIOD official Cees de Jongh; the specialist in “controlled” entry of narcotics into the Netherlands, approved by the “Officier” of Justice. Officials of customs said that they reported suspicious cargo to De Jongh, who decided what to do with it.
Cees de Jongh worked together with Frits van der Putten (one of the very few “real” names in the book) of the CID.
Henk de Jongh worked for his brother Cees. Henk repeatedly talked to “Karel Vosseveld” (fake name), an important associate of Bruinsma.
The CID is part of the police and the FIOD is the investigation unit for the taxes (Belastingdienst).

The criminal file of “Vosseveld” was made unfindable...
“Vosseveld” had 30 trucks transporting the hashish (labelled as oranges) from Morocco and Spain to the Netherlands.
“Vosseveld” was also an associate of Belgian Minister Paul vanden Boeynants, whose company was involved in transporting the hashish. Vanden Boeynants was sentenced for tax evasion. No more information on this interesting lead by Van Hout...

Henk de Jongh did the money laundering for “Vosseveld” through Luxembourg banks. Henk’s wife was a top executive at a large Luxembourg bank. They invested in a real estate, gold and aiki-Budo centres (martial arts).
“Vosseveld” paid the brothers De Jongh many millions of guilders for getting the drugs through customs.

The CID leaked information to Klaas Bruinsma so that he would assassinate certain criminals.
The British Roy Adkins was killed in September 1990 in Amsterdam after Cees de Jongh informed “Vosseveld” that Adkins hired a contract killer to get rid of Bruinsma. “Vosseveld” was also informed on the German “Hans” (fake name), that was murdered after they informed Bruinsma that a container with drugs was caught because he had been questioned at Schiphol.
I think that it’s possible that the information leaked to Bruinsma was false...

Klaas Bruinsma and a select group of associates planned to import a whopping 46,000 kilos of hashish from Pakistan in one ship. According to the Dutch government, this would have made profits of 450 million guilders.
Bruinsma asked “Vosseveld” (using De Jongh) for assistance to get this through customs. Shortly before the ship would arrive in Amsterdam, De Jongh threatened that if he wouldn’t get half of the profits the whole shipment would be caught. “Vosseveld” refused this offer and the whole ship was caught. Only some of the low operatives were caught and tried in court.
Probably a part of the catch was sold anyway.
According to “Nol Couperus”, they could have arrested Bruinsma and “Vosseveld” after the 46,000 kilos was caught in 1990.
To me this proves what amateurs Bruinsma and his gang were; they should have split this shipment over several transports...

On 27 June 1991, Bruinsma was assassinated in Amsterdam.
Cop Martin Hoogland was found guilty for the murder, 20 years, according to Van Hout based on the false testimony of heroin dealer Steve Brown.
According to Van Hout, in 1994 Aleksander’s brother Branco Marianovic (from Montenegro) confessed killing Bruinsma and was the real killer. Marianovic was later murdered so we can’t ask him.

Officially IRT started in 1992, but it’s clear that even before that Bruinsma imported drugs with the help of the authorities.
Officially between 15,000 and 25,000 kilo cocaine and 500,000 kilo hashish were imported “controlled” – value 7 billion guilders.
The “investigation” of Bruinsma and his associates cost the tax payers 150 million guilders by the end of the 1990s.

An important associate of Klaas Bruinsma was Etienne Urka.
Etienne was arrested in December 1996, and in March 1999 convicted to 18 months for tax evasion.

In 1996, Maarten van Traa (head of the commission investigating the IRT-affair) was in contact with “Vosseveld”, at the time in prison, who wanted to make a deal to tell “everything” on the liquidations by the CID Haarlem.
Adele van der Plas was the attorney of “Vosseveld”.
This deal was not finalised by Van Traa and Frank Bovenkerk.

BVD informer W. Scholtemeijer was killed in 1997 in Haarlem

Towards the end of the book, finally information on “Nico” Robert Mink Kok being helped to escape justice by DEA man Robert “the Snowman” Nieves (who was part of the Contra drug trafficking). I was hoping for more information, evidence, but Van Hout didn’t think this was an interesting lead...
In 1996, Mink Kok got preferential treatment of “Raadsheer” Willem den Ottolander (friend of Cees de Jongh) of the court of appeal (Gerechtshof), involving 15,000 to 25,000 kilos cocaine worth 1.2 billion guilders and was acquitted.

It has been rumoured that Jaap van der Heijden was murdered by Mink Kok after the CID informed Bruinsma that he was trying to kill him.
In November 1997, Mink Kok was again arrested for buying secret police reports, but released in Belgium after a couple of months because of lacking evidence.
In 1999, Mink Kok made a deal with Fred Teeven.

After his release from prison, Mink Kok was accused of being the owner of a big weapons arsenal, including explosives and XTC in a house in Amsterdam. A new court case against Mink Kok was behind closed doors.
On 30 March 2000, Mink Kok was sentenced to 4 years.

Another CID informer “Chris J.” was involved in importing tons of cocaine from the Columbian Cali cartel and from Panama with the aid of the IRT.
He was arrested in February 2000.

Fred Teeven had to testify for the commission Van Traa where he defended his actions, by claiming that he didn’t know what Cees de Jongh was doing.
Teeven admitted that 293,000 kilos drugs were imported. In reality it was much more.

Cees de Jongh wasn’t questioned by the commission Van Traa for medical reasons. Van Hout describes going to an aiki-Budo work-out under false pretences to meet De Jongh. For some reason Van Hout “forgot” to ask De Jongh on his role importing drugs for the FIOD. This shows that the medical condition of De Jongh had been highly exaggerated.
De Jongh bought several aiki-Budo centrums with dirty money, without raising suspicion from the authorities.
According to Cees de Jongh, his superiors (including Fred Teeven) knew about the drug imports.

Another criminal, “Roel C.” (another fake name), also made a deal with Teeven.

Some time after the Commission Van Traa, the Commission Kalsbeek started a new “investigation”.
This commission claimed that Mink Kok had imported 15,000 to 25,000 kilos of cocaine with the help of the IRT.

Bas van Hout - De jacht op de erven Bruinsma en de Delta organisatie (2000): http://www.mokums.nl/copy/boek_basvanhout.pdf

Besides not naming individuals he doesn’t even name the Luxembourg banks that were involved in laundering the money for Cees and his brother Henk de Jongh.
It could be interesting to look at the names Van Hout DOES mention...

He names the American born Steven Brown as one of the perpetrators. What could be the motive?
Steven Brown has a blogspot where he labels our beloved Willem-Alexander, the “graai-King” (steal-King) and Willem-Alexander’s university friend PM Mark Rutte a “hofnar” (court joker).
He also labels our Royal family and the crooks surrounding them as “gangsters”: https://stevenbrownsblog.wordpress.com/2017/04/30/geheim-bilderberg-privefeestje-jarige-taxfree-graai-king-willem-voor-zijn-gabbers-in-crime/

IRT affair
« Reply #29 on: January 23, 2019, 12:14:33 pm »
Minister of Justice since 1989 Ernst Hirsch Balin approved the “controlled” import of drugs (but he was defended by Teeven who claimed to know nothing...). Minister of Justice Hirsch Balin was appointed by then Queen Beatrix.
In 1994, Hirsch Balin had to resign as minister over the IRT affair. He was knighted by Beatrix on 8 October 1994 (and again in 2010 and 2014).
On 1 November 2000, Hirsch Balin was selected by Beatrix for the Raad van State (comparable to the British Privy Council.
On 22 September 2006, Hirsch Balin again became Minister of Justice.

When Minister of the Interior Ien Dales heard about the “controlled” import of cocaine by Dutch law enforcement, she reportedly said it should be stopped immediately. Ien Dales died very suddenly on 10 January 1994 of a “heart attack”.

She was replaced by the long-time Mayor of Amsterdam, Ed van Thijn, who not only had to resign as Minister (even though he wasn’t involved in the “controlled” import of drugs), but also had his political career ruined (compare this to Ernst Hirsch Balin or Fred Teeven for example).

Maarten van Traa died in a car crash on 20 October 1997.
Was this an “accident”, like the state media claim, or did he know too much?
According to André Rouvoet (who was also part of the Commission Van Traa), Van Traa continued to investigate the IRT affair even after the investigation had already been halted officially.

In 1999 the commission Kalsbeek was started to “investigate” this affair further (again with Rouvoet).
After they reported that in the beginning of the 1990s, more than 15,000 kilo cocaine had been imported with the help of corrupt government officials and also found huge amounts of exports of XTC to Britain, Minister Korthals ended the investigation in 2001 (in Dutch): https://www.vn.nl/andre-rouvoet-bij-de-naam-charley-da-silva-begint-het-te-borrelen/

Fred Teeven was later rewarded for his work by becoming Staatssecretaris of Justice.
In that role he supervised a deal with Cees de Jongh.
Johan V. (de Hakkelaar) got sentenced to 6 years in prison and a fine of 200 million Euro.

Cees de Jongh got sentenced to a fine of 500 million guilder. In 1993, they confiscated 6 million of his assets.
As part of the deal with Teeven, De Jongh was fined with 750,000 guilder and could keep the rest of the money tax free (in Dutch): http://politiek.tpo.nl/2014/03/11/irt-affaire-hield-teeven-cees-puk-h-uit-de-wind/

Fred Teeven and Martin Witteveen also made a deal with another drug criminal - Ad Karman.

One witness claims that Mink Kok paid Fred Teeven 1.2 million guilders at the beginning of the 1990s to get back a confiscated container with 2,500 kilo cocaine.
Teeven got another 500,000 guilders for the deal with Mink Kok (in Dutch): https://www.vn.nl/de-dealmaker-waarheidsvinding-volgens-fred-teeven/

According to the following only 5.1 million guilders of Cees de Jongh was confiscated and after paying 750,000 guilder he got 4.7 million guilders.
The deal also included the early release of De Jongh, even before he was pardoned by Queen Beatrix.
The Teeven deal was approved (in all justice) by the Procureurs-Generaal.

In March 2014, Minister of Justice Ivo Opstelten and Fred Teeven claimed that Cees de Jongh only got 2 million.
On 9 March 2015, Opstelten and Teeven resigned over the “bonnetjes affaire”.
PM Mark Rutte admitted that the deal had been approved. Rutte explained that the new commission had to “investigate” who leaked that Cees de Jongh walked away with 4.7 (instead of 2) million guilders (in Dutch): https://nos.nl/nieuwsuur/artikel/2073842-de-teevendeal-hoe-zit-het.html

The Dutch Royal family is effectively immune from prosecution, so anybody can understand that they are terrified to break the law...

See crime boss Willem-Alexander, Maxima, and some drug criminals, including Siegfried “Piet” Ulrich Humphrey Wortel and Frankie Uden, South Africa 2010.

IRT affair - Salomonson
« Reply #30 on: January 24, 2019, 11:51:34 am »
In March 1998, the CIA Inspector General testified that from 1982 to 1995 there had been a secret agreement between CIA and the Justice Department that the CIA didn’t have to report drugs offenses by its assets.
The actual request from Central Intelligence Agency Director William J. Casey to Attorney General William French Smith to exclude “narcotics violations” from the “reportable offenses” is still kept secret.
Similar to the agreement in the US in the 1980s and 1990s, during the IRT affair intelligence agents in the Netherlands were allowed to perform any illegal activity.
Even according to the current Dutch laws, this is allowed...

According to Article 21 of the current “Wet op de Inlichtingen- en Veiligheidsdiensten”, the AIVD and MIVD can engage in any criminal activity and infiltrate in any criminal organisation (the translation is mine)…
The services are authorised to:
a. employ natural persons, whether or not undercover of an assumed identity or capacity, which are the responsibility of an intelligence service:
1 °. to collect information about persons and organisations that may be of importance to an intelligence service;
2 °. to promote or take measures to protect the interests of an intelligence service.
b. establish and deploy legal entities to support operational activities.
The natural person, referred to in the first paragraph, under a, may also be instructed by the intelligence service to carry out actions that result in cooperation with a criminal offense or commit a criminal offense. An instruction as referred to in the first sentence is only given if the proper execution performance of the task of the intelligence service or the safety of the natural person involved so requires.
By or pursuant to a general Order in Council, on the recommendation of the relevant Ministers and Our Minister of Security and Justice jointly, further rules may be laid down with regard to:
a. the conditions under which and the cases in which, in order to execute an instruction by a natural person as referred to in the first paragraph, part a, actions may be carried out which may result in cooperation in the commission of a criminal offense, or commit a criminal offense;

It’s certainly possible that the same networks used for drug trafficking are used for child trafficking. I try to keep the focus in this post on drugs and money laundering. The only stories worth reading about the main topic of this post – Frits Salomonson - include paedophilia.
All of these stories refer to the disinformation campaign – the Joris Demmink affair. In that story the former high government official Joris Demmink is accused of controlling the media, legal system, and even the cabinet and Raad van State.

Because it would be impossible for Demmink to do this, I know that everybody that claims to have “researched” this (like Micha Kat) while calling this the “Joris Demmink” affair is a liar. That's not even counting that the state media, including the NOS, revealed Demmink's name!
I certainly don’t claim that everybody that copy-pastes the stories on “Joris Demmink” is lying, but at the very least misinformed.

Maarten van Traa investigated the IRT affair in the Netherlands.
The (final) report of the Van Traa Commission (Appendix X) contains a list of (anonymous) attorneys that were involved with organised crime (including laundering drugs money).
Attorney nr. 25 was laundering money for the Klaas Bruinsma and Etienne Urka organisation in a scheme that involved buying options of Janzing BV below the market price, paying the difference under the table and keeping the profits. It wasn’t hard to find out that Frits Salomonson was meant and the company Text Lite.
Salomonson had been a good friend of Beatrix since they studied in Leiden. Salomonson had been judicial advisor to Queen Beatrix and her husband Prince Claus from 1976 to 1996. He was even a member of the Guardianship Council of Crown Prince Willem Alexander, the son of Queen Beatrix (in case Beatrix would die before Willem-Alexander would be ready to take the throne). He withdrew from his advisory position and moved to Belgium over this affair.
Salomonson also was a subsidiary court judge in Amsterdam.

Maarten van Traa died in a car crash on 20 October 1997.

From 1984 to 1988, Salomonson was head of the advisory board of Text Lite and remained on the advisory until the company collapsed in 1990. The collapse of Text Lite with a deficit of 31 million guilders would grow into a scandal by 1994.
Salomonson had been a partner in the law firm Boekel de Nerée from 1991 to 1995, where Rutger Schimmelpenninck was another partner (since about 1979). Schimmelpenninck became the curator for Text Lite, but eventually withdrew as it was a too obvious that he had conflicting interests.

After leaving Boekel de Nerée, Rutger Jan Schimmelpenninck became a partner in Houthoff Buruma. He was also a board member of the ABN AMRO bank (affiliated with Rothschild and the Dutch Royal family), head of Barings Holland 1995-1996, and curator for the Dutch branch of Lehman Brothers and the DSB Bank (that was bankrupted with the assistance of former Minister and director of ABN AMRO Gerrit Zalm).

In the 1980s, Frits Salomonson was also on the advisory board of Banque de Suez. In and around 1992, he also represented Banque de Suez Holland as a lawyer.
Since 1988, the Suez Group was chaired by Etienne Davignon (later chairman of the Bilderberg Group).
The Suez Group took over Societe Generale - that at the time controlled about one third to one half of the Belgian economy. Davignon and Maurice Lippens also chaired Societe Generale from that point on.

Davignon and Lippens have been named as some of the prominent people in the Marc Dutroux child abuse ring.
Some detectives spoke about a 1998 investigation in the Netherlands into a gay paedophile network of top public officials: 2  district attorneys (from a total of 19 in the Netherlands), a former minister, a professor and a former attorney of the Queen.
Frits Salomonson was of course a former attorney of Queen Beatrix…

In 1996, Salomonson’s neighbours P. Houben and J. Sietsema in Amsterdam sent a letter to the mayor to complain that Salomonson had been seeing underage male prostitutes. Salomonson took his (by then former) neighbours to court in a libel case.
Salomonson lost the case after the editor in chief of gossip magazine Privé confirmed that in the 1980s he had received pictures that showed Salomonson in SM outfit with 4 underage boys: http://fourwinds10.com/siterun_data/health/abuse/news.php?q=1267644687
(archived here: http://archive.is/pVVfa)

In 1994, the FIOD searched the offices of Boekel de Nerée to find a letter from the curator of the Femis bank to Salomonson in which Salomonson was advised to get rid of evidence on bank accounts in Liechtenstein that contained drug money.

Frits Salomonson was also an executive or on the advisory of financial companies: Interborg BV, Ordina Beheer, Allianz Nederland, Barbizon, Amsterdamse Trustee, De Faam, Handelsveem BV, Nestle Nederland and NIM Holdings NV.
Former Minister and member of Bilderberg Neelie Kroes became Director of the investment fund Newtron that was founded by Salomonson, Willem Smit and former director of the CPB (the Dutch department of statistrics) P.M. de Ridder.

In 1994, long-time associate of Salomonson, attorney Oscar Hammerstein (who was also an executive at Janzing BV), was “investigated” by the FIOD over laundering 17.5 million guilders drug money for the organisation of Klaas Bruinsma.
The dirty money was labelled as the profits from the trade in wood and rice by Guptar, and transferred to a Swiss bank account.
In July 1995, Hammerstein was acquitted in appeal.

Another company involved in laundering money in a similar way as Text Lite was VHS. They again used Janzing BV, where Hammerstein through the Foundation Korf was a major shareholder.

The Amsterdam criminal Charly Wong, who was involved with  Klaas Bruinsma and Steve Brown, tried to blow the whistle on Text Lite. Wong talked to Parool journalist Bart Middelburg (that according to Bas van Hout made mostly unfounded claims).
In 1993, Wong disappeared and his corpse was found a couple of months later in the woods near Lelystad (in Dutch): https://www.groene.nl/artikel/advocaat-van-oranje (archived here: http://archive.is/kpS7l)

Lockerbie bombing
« Reply #31 on: January 25, 2019, 11:28:34 am »
There are only a few sources on the internet on the Lockerbie bombing in which 270 people died that was blamed on Libya. I’m not totally convinced that drugs was the motive, but I do believe that there was a cover-up.
It was no other “special” cover-up artist Robert Mueller who supervised the Lockerbie Bombing “investigation” in 1988…

Shortly before take-off, FBI Assistant Director Oliver "Buck" Revell rushed out to the tarmac and pulled his son and daughter-in-law off the plane that would later crash. Revell had a relationship with Lt. Colonel Oliver North.

On 21 December 1988, a BKA surveillance agent watching the Pan Am flight's loading noticed that the "drug" suitcase was different from that used for all previous drug shipments. This one was a brown Samsonite case.
About an hour before takeoff he phoned in a report, saying something was wrong.

Tundergarth farmer Jim Wilson told relatives of Pan Am victims that he was present "when the drugs were found". He informed local police, who notified the Americans.

A member of a mountain rescue team recalled:
We arrived within two hours [of the crash]. We found Americans already there.
Tom Dalyell, a British MP, said:
Absolutely swarms of Americans [were] fiddling with the bodies.
The crash site was quickly bulldozed, destroying crucial forensic evidence, with an Army official maintaining a watchful eye at all times: http://constitution.famguardian.org/ocbpt/ocbpt_08.htm
(archived here: http://archive.is/CKVb6)

In 1987, investigations into Iran-Contra found that al-Kassar was paid 1.5 million pounds by someone in the US government for arms to the Nicaraguan Contras.

In 1992, al-Kassar sold millions of dollars worth of arms to Croatia, Bosnia and Somalia, violating UN embargoes against these countries.

Was the bombing to protect the heroin and arms trafficking by intelligence asset Monzer al Kassar, an associate of Oliver North and Richard Secord?

On board Pan Am 103, on 21 December 1988, were Major Charles McKee, of the the US Defence Intelligence Agency in Beirut, and Matthew Gannon, CIA Deputy Station Chief in Beirut.
It has been reported that McKee and his team discovered evidence that the “rogue” CIA unit COREA, was involved in drugs with Monzar Al-Kassar: http://aangirfan.blogspot.com/2010/08/lockerbie-is-about-heroin.html

The Lockerbie bombing, “investigated” by amongst others Robert Mueller, was to cover-up a drug scandal: http://aangirfan.blogspot.nl/2010/01/holland-usa-drugs-gonsalves-mink-k.html

According to former Scotland's Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill, there is indication that the CIA did the Lockerbie bombing.
MacAskill admits that “Megrahi was not the bomber”: http://aanirfan.blogspot.com/2017/07/lockerbie-heroin-cia.html

The Scottish cops investigating the 1988 bombing knew that US intelligence had offered $2 million (£1m) to the Crown's key witness (and his brother) in the Lockerbie trial - Tony Gauci. It still has not been disclosed whether the brothers accepted any money.
This should have been relayed to the defence attorneys before the trial of Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al Megrahi, the Libyan serving 27 years for the bombing.

Another document, probably from the CIA, contains classified information about the MST13 timer which allegedly detonated the bomb. In 2007, in the appeal court, the Crown was still refusing to hand the material over to the defence (for national security reasons).

On 1 June 2000, the US government made a secret deal with a senior member of the Crown Office, Norman McFadyen, to not disclose certain information.
It looks like the right to a fair trial, of Megrahi, was breached.

Jim Swire, whose daughter Flora died in the tragedy, said:
It is shocking to me that if after 19 years of trying to get to the truth about who murdered my daughter, national security is being used as an excuse.

To finish the story on the Lockerbie bombing...

The “Scottish trial” was held at Camp Zeist in the Netherlands (home of corruption and cover-ups). Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi was sentenced to life in prison for the Lockerbie bombing.
Megrahi's appeal against his conviction was refused in March 2002 by 5 Scottish judges (again) at Camp Zeist.

Ulrich Lumpert, the Mebo AG engineer who testified on a key piece of evidence, admitted to lying in court and stealing the evidence  from his employer.

Several legal experts as well as the UN observer at the Lockerbie trial have challenged the verdict that convicted Megrahi.
At the beginning of 2003, Nelson Mandela asked for the intervention of the Western Christian churches in what he described as "a clear miscarriage of justice".

In June 2007, Megrahi was granted permission to appeal against his life sentence for a second time.
On 10 August 2009, doctors reported that Megrahi had terminal cancer. Megrahi abandoned his second appeal in August 2009 after making a deal.

On 20 August 2009, Megrahi, who had served over 8½ years in prison, was pardoned on “compassionate grounds” and moved to Libya (so he was never found innocent).
Megrahi  died on 20 May 2012, 2 years and 9 months after his release: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abdelbaset_al-Megrahi

Robert Mueller
« Reply #33 on: January 26, 2019, 11:25:43 am »
I’ve found a long article that puts “special” cover-up artist Robert Swan Mueller III in the spotlight — who “is about as corrupt as they come, bending and twisting the law every which way necessary to serve the goals of those who provide him assignments”.
My main problem with the article is that it paints Donald Trump as some sort of “hero”. I tried to find something similar, without the praises for Trump, but couldn’t find one.

In 1978, Dope, Inc.: Britain's Opium War Against America was published, by EIR and LaRouche.
In April 1982, Lyndon and Helga LaRouche travelled to India where they met with PM Indira Gandhi, along with scientists, parliamentarians, industrialists, and economists. LaRouche proclaimed the British system of Malthusian eugenics, primitive “sustainable development” and debt slavery. They condemned the policies of the World Bank and IMF as genocidal.

In May 1982, LaRouche met Mexican President Jose Lopez Portillo, and followed that meeting with a document “Operation Juarez”; a plan to reorganise the bankrupt world financial system.
LaRouche proposed that the countries of Latin America (Ibero-America) unilaterally declare a restructuring of their debts and the establishment of a new just monetary order. Including forming an International Development Bank among these nations to coordinate investments and trade expansion among the member countries.

In August, Lopez Portillo tried and failed to bring Argentina and Brazil in “Operation Juarez”.
In September 1982, Lopez Portillo (like LaRouche’s proposal) adopted credit controls on Mexico’s currency, nationalising the Mexican banking system, and announced a moratorium on Mexican debt.
Wall Street, the City of London, and intelligence agencies now targeted LaRouche and Lopez Portillo. Nonetheless, in October of 1982, in a speech at the UN, Lopez Portillo called for a new financial system, essentially along the lines LaRouche specified.

On 10 May 1982, Henry Kissinger held a speech at the Royal Institute for International Affairs where he declared himself to be a “British” agent of influence.
On 19 August 1982, Henry Kissinger sent a letter to FBI Director William Webster, demanding that LaRouche be investigated for “harassing” Kissinger.

On 27 August 1982, a Top Secret letter was sent from the British government to the FBI. That letter itself remains classified to this day.
The response by the FBI illustrates what was in the letter. On 24 September 1982, under the heading “Re: Lyndon LaRouche and the Executive Intelligence Review” FBI counterintelligence chief James Nolan responded as follows:
We would like to reiterate our conclusion that, while many of the harassment activities of the NCLC and the themes promoted by NCLC publications, such as EIR, are often propitious to Soviet disinformation and propaganda interests, there is no direct evidence that the Soviets are directing or funding LaRouche or his organization.

On 12 January 1983, the President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board - David Abshire, Leo Cherne, and Edward Bennett Williams - demanded that an FBI investigation, under Executive Order 12333 be opened on LaRouche based on the “harassment” of Henry Kissinger and possible foreign funding.
Numerous counterintelligence investigations were launched, under Executive Order 12333 - infiltration, and counterintelligence “neutralization” tactics - farmed out to private entities with names, like Project Democracy, the National Endowment for Democracy, Freedom House, and the League for Industrial Democracy. These covert operations were used to create a criminal case against LaRouche. Many of these operations remain classified to this day.

John Train’s investment company partner, Thomas J. Devine, had partnered with George H.W. Bush in the Zapata Oil company in Texas.
The Train salons were attended by amongst others Roy Godson (connected to British intelligence and at the time consultant to the NSC); John Rees (of the FBI); Mira Lansky Boland (of the ADL); Richard Mellon Scaife; Pat Lynch (NBC); Dennis King (employed by the League for Industrial Democracy); Chip Berlet;
representatives of Freedom House (a CIA proprietary associated with PFIAB’s Leo Cherne); reporters for Reader’s Digest, Business Week, the Wall Street Journal, and the New Republic.

NBC repeatedly claimed that LaRouche’s whole War on Drugs consisted of insinuating that the Queen herself was on the street corner dealing heroin.
NBC’s Patricia Lynch even claimed that LaRouche had ordered the assassination of President Jimmy Carter by remote controlled bomb.

Following LaRouche’s 1984 Presidential campaign and a public claim by Kissinger that LaRouche would be “dealt with” after the election, William Weld opened a criminal investigation of LaRouche’s Presidential campaign committees, claiming that the campaign had engaged in credit card fraud.

In 1982, Robert Mueller joined the staff of U.S. Attorney William Weld in Boston, Massachusetts. Mueller and Weld concentrated on “corruption cases”, taking down the administration of popular Boston Mayor Kevin White in an investigation widely criticised for “Gestapo tactics”. In 1986, Mueller succeeded William Weld as acting U.S. Attorney, after Weld was chosen to head the Bush Justice Department’s Criminal Division.
Mueller chose John J.E. Markham II to head the LaRouche “investigation”. Markham had been a member of the Process Church of the Final Judgment, a satanic cult affiliated with Charles Manson.

Mueller employed some 400 law enforcement agents and privately owned armoured personnel to raid 2 office buildings in Leesburg, Virginia where EIR and other companies associated with LaRouche were located.
In 1992, one of the raid’s principals, Donald Moore, told an FBI informant that a plan was in circulation to provoke LaRouche’s security guards into a shooting incident at Ibykus Farm, where LaRouche stayed, and killing LaRouche. FBI case agent Richard Egan corroborated Moore’s account.
The plan to kill LaRouche was only aborted when his associates sent a telegram to President Reagan for “help”.

The subsequent trial in Boston, in which LaRouche was indicted for obstruction of justice, fell apart when FOIA documents showed secret covert operations being run against LaRouche - notably a document from Ollie North’s safe indicating extreme White House interest in players in the LaRouche case. Federal Judge Robert Keeton ordered a search of Vice-President Bush’s office.
Judge Keeton ruled a mistrial due to juror hardship. Jurors later told that they would have voted not guilty.
The Justice Department quickly opened a new massive LaRouche case before Judge Albert V. Bryan Jr. in Alexandria, Virginia. This was based on loan fraud and preventing the IRS from assessing taxes. LaRouche was the sole defendant charged in both of the two counts, and all defendants were convicted.

A national security informant infiltrated in the LaRouche security operation. He told LaRouche that he could use his contacts to stop the investigation. The notes made on this meeting were written down in their notebooks.
During the trial, John Markham used this for “evidence” that the defendants had conspired to obstruct justice.
Prosecution witnesses underwent “deprogramming” to prepare for testimony, and were granted numerous benefits never disclosed to the defence.
Markham and Mueller employed the ADL for witness interviews and used Dennis King as a consultant.

Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark represented LaRouche on appeal. Clark said that the LaRouche case represented:
a broader range of deliberate cunning and systemic misconduct over a longer period of time using the power of the federal government than any other prosecution by the U.S. government in my time or to my knowledge.

In 1989, George H.W. Bush selected Robert Mueller to Main Justice to lead the case against Panamanian President Manuel Noriega.
To get the evidence together, Mueller bribed Latin America’s most notorious drug gangs with “get out of jail” free cards, if they would say that Noriega dealt drugs (and leave the Bush drugs syndicate unmentioned). According to reporter Glenn Garvin, Mueller plea bargained down a potential 1,435 years in prison for the drug traffickers, to 81 years. These deals included a $1.25 million bribe to members of the Cali Cartel and a deal with self-proclaimed Hitler worshiper Carlos Lehder Rivas, leader of the Medellin Cartel.

Mueller then ascended to head the Justice Department’s Criminal Division. Here he successfully covered up the drug, weapons, and terrorism activities of the notorious BCCI and BNL banks: https://larouchepac.com/20170927/robert-mueller-amoral-legal-assassin-he-will-do-his-job-if-you-let-him
(archived here: http://archive.is/wKA1q)

To finish the story on Robert Mueller. President Bush Jr. selected him as Director of the FBI literally one week before 9/11. Robert Mueller was a classmate of John Kerry (they played sports together).
John Kerry is a member of Skull & Bones, just like George W. Bush (Republican candidate for the 2004 Presidential election against Kerry), and Trump’s associates Stephen Schwarzman (CEO of Jacob Rothschild’s Blackstone) and Steve Mnuchin.

Robert Mueller was also involved in covering up the Franklin scandal: https://3169.createaforum.com/conspiracy/mk-ultramind-controlsatanic-ritual-abusemonarch-programming-etc/msg2149/#msg2149

The late former FBI-agent Ted Gunderson sent letters about the sexual abuse, including kidnapping, to the FBI (including to Robert Mueller). See Mueller’s reply to the 11 March 1992 letter by Gunderson, with the conclusion that there is “no evidence of misconduct by FBI personnel that would justify your charge of obstruction of justice”.

Edward Jay Epstein – Agency of fear
« Reply #34 on: January 27, 2019, 11:37:12 am »
Here´s another book relevant to this thread. This is a different book than the others I’ve posted in this thread. It shows how the fear for drugs is used to reorganise the government, and for mind control purposes. It shows similarities to the “war on terror”.
I was surprised to learn how many of our ideas on addicts are the prejudiced ideas that were used to fuel the war by drugs. It’s almost exclusively about the Nixon administration (but still relevant today)…

Epstein considers the description of drug addicts by the state propaganda similar to vampires. The story that each addict would make addicts of others was pioneered by Richmond Pearson Hobson in the 1920s (Hobson died in 1937). Hobson was financed by John D. Rockefeller Jr.
In 1966, Nelson Rockefeller depicted heroin addiction as an infectious disease that would be spread to “innocent” victims in both the ghetto and the suburbs.

In 1971, President Richard Nixon justified his request for emergency powers to deal with the drug epidemic by supplying statistics to the media that the number of addict-users had increased from 68,000 in 1969 to 315,000 in 1970 to 559,000 in 1971. Myles Ambrose declared that “Such a geometric progression threatened the entire American citizenry with "the hell of addiction" every individual infected with heroin was in turn driven to infect at least six others.
How did they reach these remarkable numbers?
In 1969 it was not assumed that there were many addicts unknown to the police; in 1970 it was assumed that there were 246,912 unknown addicts; in 1971 they supposed 490,912 unknown addicts at large.
If the same method was used to reach the estimate of 68,088 addicts in 1969, by mid-1970 the addict population would be 68,864…
To put this in perspective, there were more than 9 million alcoholics and less than 100,000 known narcotics addicts at the time.

After continual White House pressure, by 1971 television stations had donated commercial time worth some $37 million for messages about the war on drugs, according to an estimate by the Advertising Council in 1972. Because of this massive campaign, President Nixon could rightfully claim in his June 1971, declaration of a national emergency that "the threat of narcotics ... frightens many Americans".

In 2017, it’s still common to see addicts as major criminals. One of the strategies that is used to convince us of junkies as criminals, by putting the criminals back on the street directly after an arrest - "revolving door" arrests.

Like the numbers to show that the amount of addicts was rising dramatically, also numbers were invented to show the addicts as major criminals.
Governor Rockefeller stated that $5 billion was yearly stolen in New York City by addicts alone.
If all the projected 559,000 addicts committed two or three burglaries a day, as President Nixon postulated, they would commit more than 365 million burglaries a year – 200 times more than all of the burglaries. If in 1970 there were 100,000 addicts in New York and they had to steal $30 a day to pay for their habit, than that "army of addicts" would steal $1,095,000,000. Calculations like these would mean that addicts would steal 12 times more property than was actually stolen in 1971.
In 1973, Rockefeller claimed that the 135,000 addicts in New York had a "day-in, day-out" robbery schedule. This would amount to something like 49,275,000 robberies, muggings, and murders a year, which would mean that a New York resident would be robbed, mugged, and murdered approximately 7 times a year. There were (only) about 110,000 of such crimes reported in New York City.

In the summer of 1972, a shipping strike temporarily interrupted the supply of heroin in Eastern cities and quintupled the street price of the drug. If heroin addicts had to finance their habit through theft, then there should have been either a sharp increase in crime or an increase in the number of applicants for methadone-treatment programs. But nothing like this happened…
During the East Coast dock strike, IDA researchers found that heroin use in the Washington jails dropped from nearly 20% to 0, while the use of barbiturates and amphetamines among the arrestees rose from 3 - 4% to nearly 20%.

The state propaganda often tells us about the successes of law enforcement in the “war on drugs”.
On 24 October 1969, none other than Henry A. Kissinger demanded that poppy production in Turkey must be stopped: https://2001-2009.state.gov/r/pa/ho/frus/nixon/e1/45848.htm
Mr. Kissinger recommended that the participants at the meeting constitute a Task Force, and that a working party be established under State's leadership. The working party should prepare a report to the Task Force containing a detailed action program relating to the following: specific measures to end the Turkish opium crop no later than summer 1970; action to ensure that heroin production is eliminated in France; a diplomatic scenario should be included and fully integrated with domestic programs. The report should be in the hands of the Task Force within one week, with a view to providing a Task Force report to the President immediately thereafter.
Then suddenly in 1971, the Turkish military overthrew the elected government of Turkey. The new premier, Nihat Erim, agreed to suspend poppy cultivation in Turkey in time for the American election.
This sounded like a major success, but according to estimates by the CIA, Turkey produced only 3- 8% of the illicit opium in the world. While the state media accused Turkey of supplying "up to 80 percent of the heroin smuggled into the United States", the Golden Triangle was producing about ten times as much.

Another great trick is to present drug catches in “street value”. A kilogram of heroin seized in 1970 could be replaced by a trafficker in France for about $5,000; but the Bureau of Narcotics would report it at $210,000 (more than 40 times what the heroin was actually worth).

Poppy wasn’t only used in producing (illegal) heroin, but also for codeine used in (legal) drugs. In 1974, the “coughing crisis” erupted, and the Office of Management and Budget, decided to reverse the policy of annihilating the world's poppy production and seek new sources of opium for the drug industry.

In 1930, it was already known that federal narcotics agents in New York City took credit for arrests made by the NYPD, and that some of the federal agents were themselves involved with narcotics traffickers.
In 1969, it was discovered that the New York office of the federal Bureau of Narcotics had become the leading dealers in heroin in the USA and were protecting the operations of dealers (who in turn helped them to get their "arrests").

If Americans could be persuaded that their lives and the lives of their children were being threatened by a rampant epidemic of narcotics addiction, Nixon's advisors presumed they would not object to government actions like no-knock warrants, pre-trial detention, wiretaps, and unorthodox strike forces.
A new law was passed, that meant that if an addict took a drug within 24 hours after committing a crime, he could be mandatorily sentenced to concentration camps for life for committing a petty crime (of course in 2017 the USA promotes the 3-strikes law, which is arguably even more effective…).

There was a new policy to check automobiles and trucks crossing the border with Mexico. This delayed them up to 6 hours in hundred-degree temperatures; anybody appearing suspicious or recalcitrant was stripped and bodily searched.
More than five million people were checked, but virtually no narcotics were found. The task force thus was quietly withdrawn from the Mexican border.

It was repeatedly suggested that the only way to get immediate results, is to assassinate traffickers.
According to Ambassador Martin, the only way of disrupting the supply of opium from the Golden Triangle is to organise assassination teams to kill the key traffickers that control the trade.
John Ingersoll was asked by the White House to prepare a plan for "clandestine law enforcement". According to Jeffrey Donfeld, who drew up most of the memoranda, assassination was "a very definite part of the plan".
According to Egil Krogh's detailed description of the discussion on drugs of John Ehrlichman with President Nixon, the president agreed to "forceful action in [stopping] international trafficking of heroin at the host country".
The memorandum of the meeting noted:
It is anticipated that a material reduction in the supply of heroin in the U.S. can be accomplished through a $100 million (over three years) fund which can be used for clandestine law enforcement activities abroad and for which BNDD would not be accountable.

Already 40 years ago it was known that methadone is just as addictive and damaging to the health as heroin, while letting the government provide it to addicts, doesn’t even reduce crime, and gives the addicts the possibility to become methadone dealers themselves…

Methadone was developed by German Nazi scientists during World War II as a substitute for heroin and morphine. After the war the formula for this synthetic drug was given to American drug companies, and it was subsequently manufactured by Eli Lilly and Company.
Jerome Jaffe claimed that by distributing methadone, he had single-handedly decreased the crime rate in Chicago with 40%.

Under the auspices of the New York Health Research Council, Dr. Vincent P. Dole, of the Rockefeller Institute, and psychiatrist Maria E. Nyswander, experiments were done that laid the foundation for what was to become known as "methadone maintenance".
Dole and Nyswander actually increased the dosages of methadone for 22 addicts participating in the experiment until they were stabilized on a higher dosage of methadone than they had previously used of heroin. They succeeded in substituting the methadone for heroin.
Because the high of methadone is less intense and works longer, theoretically, addicts on methadone could better be employed (than on heroin).

Other doctors tried to replicate Dole and Nyswander's program of methadone maintenance but found that many of the methadone patients continued their life of crime. They also found out that they persisted in using illegal drugs.
An April 1974 report by the newly created Drug Enforcement Agency, entitled "Methadone: A Review of Current Information", showed that addicts on methadone maintenance are not necessarily rehabilitated heroin addicts. They found out that where there is an extensive methadone program, there were more methadone addicts arrested than heroin addicts.
It was found that among the addicts younger than 31, the only reductions in criminal arraignments one year after they had begun methadone treatment occurred in three categories: drug offenses, forgery and prostitution. In all other categories the rate of criminal charges actually increased.

Edward Jay Epstein – Agency of fear; Opiates and Political Power in America (1977): http://www.mediafire.com/file/c61nk1980k3mndi/sfshhjdjdjjkmmmm.pdf

In 2017, there are still methadone maintenance programs everywhere in the “developed” world. Most of the information on the internet is moderately positive about these methadone programs…
The best critical review I found is from 2001, which focuses on Atlanta.
By 1970, methadone clinics opened across the country. Approximately 800 clinics operate today; they have 115,000 patients.
In the 1990s, private clinics began appearing. Addicts pay up to $300 a month for methadone versus $100 a day for heroin. A private clinic with 200 patients is guaranteed a monthly income of almost $60,000.

Clinics regularly give methadone to patients who haven't proved an addiction, increase dosages without a physician's approval and provide take-home doses even to patients who were caught selling previous doses on the street.
GPA Treatment Director Stacey Pearce says that new patients, with opiates in their urine, claims to be using heroin with track marks or prescriptions for pain pills at multiple pharmacies, get methadone.
DHR inspection reports show that at 4 of 10 Atlanta-area clinics, patients have walked in for the first time and got methadone without proving they suffered an opiate addiction. At 2 clinics, patients that were caught selling their doses, can still take a home supply with them.
Patients claim they can easily get more methadone. If they complain of leg cramps, insomnia or other withdrawal symptoms, the dose goes up.

State rules say clinics can start a patient on a maximum dose of 30 milligrams and can increase the dosage until signs of withdrawal disappear (a 50 milligram dose can kill somebody who hasn’t build up a tolerance to opiates). It's pretty standard to get five or 10 additional milligrams every few days until the dosage reaches 60 to 100 milligrams (a day).
On 3 January 1996, Chris Brackett walked into a methadone clinic. The clinic started him on a 30 milligram dose of methadone. When Brackett returned to the clinic at 7 AM the next day, a nurse gave him another 40 milligram dose, because his cravings and symptoms hadn't ceased. He went home, to Canton. Brackett's girlfriend walked into their apartment at 6 PM, and found him laying dead on the couch. The autopsy listed the cause of death as "intoxication by multiple prescription medications, including methadone": http://www.creativeloafing.com/news/article/13003771/dealing-drugs-the-legal-way

From 1999 to 2007 the number of methadone deaths in the USA increased from something like 800 to 5500 a year, then lowered to 4600 in 2010.

Alfa Bank, Giuliani, Richard Burt
« Reply #35 on: January 28, 2019, 10:03:34 am »
I started investigating the Alfa Bank after I found out that it was communicating with the Trump Organization and the Spectrum Health of the Devos family during the 2016 presidential campaign: https://www.lawfulpath.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1038&start=50#p4816

I’m not surprised that I found information on money laundering by the Alfa Bank, but I also found information on drugs trafficking by Alfa Eko (both part of the Alfa Group).

In the 1980s, Mikhail Fridman was active in the Komsomol, and, according to insiders, “secretly cooperated with operatives of the KGB” .
Komsomol was used to “groom” 47% of the KGB agents in the Soviet Union.

The Alfa Group “bought” Tyumen Oil for roughly $810 million from the Russian government. Russian President Boris Yeltsin had instructed his Deputy Prime Minister Alfred Kokh, to “personally control the investment tender of the TNK company” (TNK = Tyumen Oil).
In 2000, the US Export-Import Bank approved a $489 million “loan” to Russian oil company Tyumen Oil Co.; $292 million of those funds to refurbish a Siberian oil field owned by Alfa.
Spokesperson for the Ex-Im Bank, Marsha E. Berry, said that we are “not aware of Tyumen’s connections to the mob”.
Tyumen’s lead attorney at Akin Gump is James C. Langdon Jr., who was also one of George W. Bush’s “Pioneers”, a fund raiser who raised at least $100,000 for his presidential campaign.

In 1993, a top Alfa official met Gilberto Rodriguez Orejuela, who in 2000 was imprisoned for money laundering for Colombia’s Cali cartel:
to conclude an agreement about the transfer of money into Alfa Bank from offshore zones such as the Bahamas, Gibraltar and others. The plan was to insert it back into the Russian economy through the purchase of stock in Russian companies.

According to a 1997 report by the FSB (the Russian FBI), in the early 1990s Alfa Bank and Alfa Eko had been laundering Russian and Colombian drug money and trafficking drugs from the Far East to Europe.
Alfa Group’s top executives, Mikhail Fridman and Pyotr Aven:
allegedly participated in the transit of drugs from Southeast Asia through Russia and into Europe.

Alfa Eko supposedly specialises in the shipment of food…
In 1995, residents of a Siberian town became “intoxicated” and “poisoned”, after they had eaten heroin-laced sugar that had been shipped in a rail car container leased to Alfa Eko.
Ministry of Internal Affairs agents conducted raids of Alfa Eko buildings and found “drugs and other compromising documentation”: https://www.publicintegrity.org/2000/08/02/3279/cheney-led-halliburton-feast-federal-trough
(archived here: http://archive.is/nSDkl)

Mikhail Fridman has Israeli citizenship and resides in London.

In 2008, none other than Rudy Giuliani was hired by the Alfa Bank for a speech. Giuliani featured prominently on Alfa’s website.
See Rudy Giuliani with the heads of Alfa Bank; Mikhail Fridman on the left and Pyotr Aven in Moscow at Alfa’s “Award for Excellence in Foreign Investment in Russia”.

Rudy Giuliani’s law and consulting firm, Giuliani Partners, has also represented Russian oil company Rosneft. In one deal Giuliani Partners represented both seller Rosneft and buyer, Qatar’s investment fund.

In 2007, it was revealed that Giuliani’s firm lobbied for the US subsidiary Citgo Petroleum Corp of the Venezuelan state-oil company PDVSA.
PDVSA got a $1.5 billion dollar loan from Russia’s Rosneft to avoid default on its other obligations, with 49.9% as collateral.

Giuliani Partners also worked for TransCanada of the Keystone XL pipeline.
Rudy Giuliani has also represented Fox News (of Rupert Murdoch), the government of Saudi Arabia and UST Tobacco.

In 2012, Bracewell & Giuliani announced that its client Chesapeake Energy had closed an energy deal with Royal Dutch Shell Oil.
Shell announced that they were also advised in this deal by Bracewell & Giuliani.

Giuliani left Bracewell & Giuliani in 2016, and joined Greenberg Traurig: https://thesternfacts.com/the-trump-russia-dossier-includes-rudy-giulianis-clients-alfa-bank-rosneft-and-qatar-1353876e789e

Richard Burt has longstanding connections with both BGR Group and Alfa.
Burt was a member of the advisory board of the Alfa Group and still has an advisory role at LetterOne.

Richard Burt was also executive chairman and is still a member of the Advisory Board of corporate intelligence operation Diligence LLC, which employs former spies.
Former director of CIA and FBI, William Webster, is also involved with Diligence LLC.
A stake in Diligence is owned by none other than Nathaniel “Nat” Rothschild.

Dimitry Simes arrived in the US in 1973 and quickly made a career, becoming an informal policy adviser to Richard Nixon. In 1994 Nixon appointed Simes to lead the Nixon Center.
In March 2011, the Nixon Center was renamed to Center of the National Interest (CNI) and separated from the Richard Nixon Family Foundation. Both Simes and Burt are board members of the CNI. Trump’s friend for many years, Henry Kissinger, is honorary chairman of the CNI, while the cofounder of Baron Jacob Rothschild’s investment fund Blackstone, Peter Peterson, is also a board member.
In 2017, Simes met Kremlin adviser Gleb Pavlovsky and Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska.

In 2013, Simes attended the Valdai International Discussion Club alongside Putin. Putin meets Valdai Club’s participants every year since 2004. See Putin on the left, with Simes on the right.

Richard Burt in turn is connected to just about all the major players in Washington DC, including Bush, Clinton, Trump and Ron Paul...

Richard Burt is also a Senior Advisor of McLarty and Associates.

Thomas F. McLarty III is the President at McLarty Associates. He was the cofounder of Kissinger McLarty Capital Group.
McLarty was also a member of the Advisory Board at Diligence London.
McLarty is senior advisor of The Carlyle Group LP.

McLarty was also President Clinton's Chief of Staff.
He was also an advisor of US Presidents George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter: https://www.bloomberg.com/research/stocks/private/person.asp?personId=126918&privcapId=2015792&previousCapId=689493&previousTitle=Baring%20Vostok%20Capital%20Partners%20Limited

Clinton – Cuba and China
« Reply #36 on: January 29, 2019, 11:23:30 am »
I’ve heard rumours about laws in the USA that prevent politicians from receiving foreign campaign contributions…

The Cuban born drugs trafficker Jorge Cabrera was asked for a campaign contribution by prominent Democratic fund-raiser Vivian Mannerud in a hotel in Havana. Several days later, in November 1995, Cabrera wrote a check for $20,000 to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) from an account that included proceeds from smuggling cocaine from Colombia to the USA.
In December 1995, Cabrera attended a Christmas reception at the White House hosted by first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, while he had earlier met Vice President Al Gore in Miami.

In 1983, Cabrera had been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of racketeering and drug distribution. He pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice for conspiring to bribe a grand jury witness. Cabrera served 42 months in prison.
In 1988, Cabrera was charged with managing a narcotics operation. He pleaded guilty to filing a false income-tax return. He served one year in prison.

In early January 1996, Cabrera and several accomplices were inside a cigar warehouse near Dade County, Florida, where more than 500 pounds of cocaine was hidden. Cabrera was charged with importing 6000 pounds of cocaine into the USA on boats through the Florida Keys.
Cabrera pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 19 years in federal prison and a $1.5 million fine.
In October 1996, DNC returned the $20,000 check from Cabrera to the Federal Treasury, stating that it was an “improper donation”.

When Cabrera was arrested, agents found a picture of Cabrera with Fidel Castro. Cabrera tried to make a deal by offering evidence that the Cuban Government was involved in drug trafficking.
In November 1995, about the time the DNC asked him for a campaign contribution, Cabrera met Castro in Havana – when he was planning the shipment that was later seized in Miami.
Cabrera said Cali Cartel boss Carlos Tascon told him of plans to send a freighter full of cocaine from Colombia to the USA through Cuban waters. Cabrera detailed how he had picked up tons of Colombian cocaine in Cuban waters out of the reach of US authorities, before he was caught.
Cabrera's co-defendant, the Colombian Alberto Franco Herrera, struck his own deal with the government and confirmed that he and Cabrera were in Cuba during the drug deal: http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/RANCHO/POLITICS/cabreras.html

The Dole-Kemp campaign had to file a Freedom Of Information Act request to force the Clinton Justice Department to release the following photos.
In December 1995, Cabrera met Vice President Al Gore at a Miami fund-raiser.

In December 1995, Cabrera attended the pre-Christmas event at the White House, here’s Cabrera (on the left) with Hillary Clinton.

Hillary and Bill Clinton are also connected to the Macau crime (Triad) boss, Ng Lap Seng, who donated thousands of dollars to the Clintons and deals in heroin, murder for hire, human trafficking, prostitution and gun smuggling.
Back in the days that Bill was governor, the Clintons became friends with the Arkansas restaurant owner Charlie Yah Lin Trie, a member of the “4 Seas Triad”, a crime syndicate based in Hong Kong.
Ng entered the United States with over $300,000 cash in his pockets, and subsequently visited the White House 12 times. Ng also wired Charlie Trie between $1.1 million and $1.5 million, of which at least $645,000 made its way to the DNC as illegally laundered campaign contributions.

See Ng Lap Seng with the Clintons.

One of Ng’s operations includes DNC fundraiser Ted Sioeng in the firm Ang-Du International. According to the Wall Street Journal, Ang-Du abducts Thai women for Macau brothels. Sioeng was also pictured with Vice President Al Gore at the Hsi Lai Buddhist Temple.
According to Marie Jose Ragab, the Clinton administration and the World Bank helped Thailand organise and nationalise their prostitution business - state-sponsored trafficking in women…
Ragab wrote in 1992: “Last year in Thailand alone, trafficking 600,000 women and girls brought $5 billion into the country”. Millions of these women and girls have their passports confiscated by the traffickers so they can do nothing about being used for sex slavery.

In February 1996, President Clinton met with Chinese arms dealer Wang Jun after taking a donation from Charlie Trie: http://www.wnd.com/1999/10/3848/

The following article describes that Charlie Trie and Ng Lap Seng are members of the triads:
Like other organized crime groups, triads have elaborate initiation ceremonies similar to those of the Italian Mafia and are engaged in a range of illegal activities such as bank and credit card fraud, currency counterfeiting, money laundering, extortion, human trafficking and prostitution.
In the U.S., congressional investigators in the 1990s identified “China-gate” fundraising scandal figure Charlie Trie as a triad member who aided a Chinese government campaign to funnel millions of dollars to the Democratic Party. Trie was traced by investigators to Ng Lap Seng, a Macau-based triad.
A powerful triad leader in Hong Kong was among the first to begin money laundering on behalf of China, converting billions of dollars worth of criminal money that was funnelled to China and funding the Chinese military, said Mr. McAdam, who is writing a book on the subject.
Today, Hong Kong remains one of the money-laundering capitals of the world. Authorities in Beijing announced this week they are moving to curb the transfer of cash by limiting to $8,000 the amount of U.S. currency mainlanders can bring into Hong Kong.

Although Ng was identified in a 1998 Senate report as the source of hundreds of thousands of dollars illegally funnelled through Charlie Trie to the DNC, Ng was not charged with any crime.
If I understand correctly Charlie Trie did receive a prison sentence...
Only in 2016,  Ng Lap Seng was charged with smuggling $4.5 million into the US since 2013 and lying that it was to buy art and casino chips.

Dr John Ashe, president of the 193-nation assembly from September 2013 to September 2014 and for years Antigua & Barbuda’s Ambassador to the UN , was accused of  taking more than 1 million dollars in bribes from Chinese “businessmen”, including Ng.
Because Ashe had (partial?) diplomatic immunity he was (only) facing a trial for tax fraud.
Also several other co-conspirators were charged.
Ashe was awarded the Companion of the Order of St Michael and St George by Queen Elizabeth II in 2007.

Before John Ashe got the chance to testify, he suddenly died.
At first it was reported that he died of a “heart attack”, but later it was claimed that his throat was crushed in an “accident” while lifting a barbell in his house in Westchester County: http://pagesix.com/2016/06/26/disgraced-ex-un-officials-death-conveniently-timed/

Afghanistan - narco-state
« Reply #37 on: January 30, 2019, 10:23:05 am »
I didn't expect to find so much information on the connections between known drugs traffickers and the elite.
Take a deap breath; this appears to be my last post in this thread with “old” research...
I’ll try to present the information I collected in chronologic order, starting with the British Opium wars against China and ending with Afghanistan where farmers are forced by economic conditions to grow poppy instead of food.

As part of “the war on terror”, the international community has openly supported the cultivation of poppy in Afghanistan. The 21st century Afghanistan is the country in the world that most deserves to be called a full-blown narco-state.

The U.S. military has openly said that it protects Afghani poppy fields. It’s claimed that this will appease farmers, while it’s supposedly the Taliban that forces these farmers to grow poppy.
There is even an example, where a US soldier seems to be helping with cultivation.
In November 2009, the Afghan Minister of Counter Narcotics Khodaidad Khodaidad said that the majority of drugs are stockpiled in 2 provinces controlled by US, UK, and Canadian troops. He also claimed that NATO forces are taxing the opium and that foreign troops are earning money from drug production in Afghanistan: https://publicintelligence.net/usnato-troops-patrolling-opium-poppy-fields-in-afghanistan/

In a 2010 report by Geraldo Rivera on Fox News, a USMC Lt. Col. Admitted that US forces encourage the Afghans to grow different crops, and tolerate poppy cultivation. The US army claims they are teaching the Afghans who are the “good” guys.
The marines also got a nice visit by British Crown Prince Charles (for some reason the original longer video was deleted by Youtube)…

In 1983, the British SAS trained the Mujahedin fighters of the drugs trafficking Osama Bin Laden in the hills surrounding the Criffel, Dumfries and Galloway in Scotland: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/scotland/1546995.stm

In 2007, Dutch minister Agnes van Ardenne admitted that Dutch soldiers in Afghanistan won’t take part in the destruction of opium poppy crops because it’s “counterproductive”. Van Ardenne said the Netherlands and other European NATO members oppose the plan to destroy the poppies, and would explain this to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.
According to NATO commander US Gen. James L. Jones:
Having NATO troops out there burning crops, for example, is not going to significantly contribute to the war on drugs. It's much more sophisticated and complex than that.

In 2007, the Daily Mail reported that the biggest success that the British troops had achieved; is that Afghanistan is now capable of converting opium into heroin on an industrial scale in factories themselves. This has resulted in Afghanistan exporting heroin (instead of opium) and has lowered the heroin prices in Britain.
Millions of gallons of the needed chemicals are shipped into Afghanistan by tanker. The transport is greatly supported by the roads creating with American aid.
The 4 largest players in the heroin business are senior members of the Afghan government.
After Alexander Litvinenko reported about the major involvement of government officials in St Petersburg in the heroin trade, he had to flee Russia, because he named political allies of President Vladimir Putin. Litvinenko died in London in 2010 by polonium 210 poisoning: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-469983/Britain-protecting-biggest-heroin-crop-time.html

Brother of the (then) Afghan president, Ahmed Wali Karzai, was suspected of being a key player in the booming opium trade. Ahmed Wali Karzai was paid for his “assistance” by the CIA since the NATO invasion of Afghanistan for at least 8 years. Ahmed Wali Karzai denied the money from the CIA but said he received regular payments from his president brother.
A top former Afghan Interior Ministry official said that a major source of Ahmed Wali Karzai’s influence over the drug trade was his control over key bridges crossing the Helmand River.
Ahmed Wali Karzai got sort of controversial when the CIA’s local paramilitary group, the Kandahar Strike Force, shot and killed Kandahar’s provincial police chief, Matiullah Qati: www.nytimes.com/2009/10/28/world/asia/28intel.html

Here’s a 2010 article by Alfred McCoy, with also some history of the support of the drug trafficking mujahedeen, Hekmatyar and the Pakistani ISI by the CIA.
The Bush administration did nothing to stop the heroin boom, and helped create a drug economy that corrupted and crippled the government.  In recent years, for some 500,000 Afghan families, nearly 20% of the country's population, their main source of income is poppy cultivation.
In late 2004, President Bush said he did not want to "waste another American life on a narco-state''.
Many Afghan officials, from village leaders to Kabul's police chief, the defence minister, and the brother of President Hamid Karzai, have been involved in the drugs trafficking - EDIT new link: http://www.tomdispatch.com/blog/175225/tomgram:_alfred_mccoy,_afghanistan_as_a_drug_war__/
(archived here: http://archive.is/fdT8w)

See the estimated numbers of the UN in metric tons, according to which 2007 was the top year…

Following is a 2016 article, on the decrease of poppy eradication in 2016,
In 2016 only 355 hectares, or 877 acres, of poppy were destroyed in 2016, a 91% decline from 2015.
According to the official numbers, 90% of the world’s heroin comes from Afghanistan: https://www.businessinsider.nl/opium-poppy-production-increasing-in-afghanistan-during-war-2016-11/?international=true&r=US

The 2004 World Bank paper “DRUGS AND DEVELOPMENT IN AFGHANISTAN” shows that there is no plan for poppy eradication at all, but only a plan to “control” the drug trade:
The development implications of the opium economy include pluses as well as minuses. Among the former are the support provided by the opium economy to overall economic activity and the balance of payments. The opium economy has boosted rural incomes and has served as a coping mechanism helping large numbers of poor people through wage labor and sharecropping and tenancy arrangements which provide them with access to land and credit, albeit on unfavorable terms.
Widespread availability of grain (imported or domestically produced) on local markets may enable farmers to shift more acreage to opium poppy cultivation by obviating the necessity to grow grain for self-consumption.
In the short run, Afghanistan’s drug industry provides significant macroeconomic benefits for the country. Comprising a large share of total economic activity (roughly one-third in 2003), it is a major source of aggregate demand—for services, durable goods, construction, etc. It provides incomes and livelihoods for large numbers of people. In recent years Afghan farmers have received in the range of half a billion dollars annually from opium production, with another several hundred million dollars probably going to wage laborers (see Ward and Byrd 2004). This constitutes an enormous injection of income into Afghanistan’s battered rural economy. The drug industry supports Afghanistan’s balance of payments with a net positive impact that is hard to ascertain but may be in the range of $500-1,000 million annually, facilitating conservative macroeconomic management and supporting the currency. And although the drug industry as an illegal activity does not provide tax revenues directly to the government (except perhaps small local revenues), imports from drug proceeds do generate significant amounts of customs revenue.

The question of controlling the monetary proceeds of the drug trade, which are transferred through the informal hawala financial system, is important. The subject is mentioned in the strategy but no specific actions are proposed.
Overall, an eradication-led strategy would face severe problems with implementation, poverty impacts, and political damage.

More on the Contras
« Reply #38 on: March 06, 2020, 07:52:00 am »
Already in 1981, the CIA knew that the Nicaragua Contras were financing their terror, including bombing and hijackings of Nicaraguan civilian planes, by “criminal activities”.
In a June 1981 draft CIA field report, the CIA reported that the earliest Contra force (called ADREN or the 15th of September Legion), had chosen "to stoop to criminal activities in order to feed and clothe their cadre".

In a September 1981 cable to CIA headquarters, it was reported that ADREN used drug trafficking for financing. According to the CIA cable, 2 ADREN members made the first delivery of drugs to Miami in July 1981.

CIA Inspector General Frederick Hitz revealed that the CIA put a now-admitted drug operative - known under the pseudonym "Ivan Gomez" -- in a supervisory position over Eden Pastora. The CIA knew this in 1987, when “Gomez” admitted that in March or April 1982, he had helped family members engaged in drug trafficking and money laundering and "knew this act was illegal".

“Gomez” described to the CIA how his family members had slid $2 million into debt and had gone to Miami to run a money-laundering centre for drug traffickers. Gomez said "his brother had many visitors whom [Gomez] assumed to be in the drug trafficking business". This brother was arrested on drug charges in June 1982. In September 1982, “Gomez” started his CIA assignment in Costa Rica.

Already in November 1985, the FBI knew that Gomez's 2 brothers were large cocaine importers, with shipments from Bolivia's drug kingpin Roberto Suarez.
That’s the same Suarez, who in 1980, with Argentine military support, financed the “Cocaine Coup” in Bolivia.

Moises Nunez worked for Oliver North’s NSC operation and for 2 drug-connected seafood importers, Ocean Hunter in Miami and Frigorificos de Puntarenas in Costa Rica. One of Nunez's associates, Felipe Vidal, had a criminal record as a narcotics trafficker in the 1970s, but the CIA hired anyway, and Vidal continued to work for the CIA with the Contras until 1990.
A December 1984 cable to CIA headquarters, details Vidal's ties to another drug trafficker, Rene Corvo, who worked with the Cuban Frank Castro, who reportedly was a Medellin cartel representative within the Contra movement.

In 1987, John Molina told his brother that he had worked for the CIA staring in 1980 to purchase arms for the Contras and other US-backed forces in Latin America. John Molina suspected that some money came from drug trafficking.
John Molina tried to pull out of the operation in 1987. On 2 October 1987, Molina got into his car when he was shot and killed. The assassin later claimed that he was sent by Colombian kingpins.

According to documents that emerged during the Iran-contra cover-up, North got$2.7 million in untraceable cash from the money-laundering network, who took the money to Washington.
The cash deliveries were arranged through Republic National Bank officer Nan Morabia: http://web.archive.org/web/20120727144749/https://consortiumnews.com/1990s/consor29.html
