RT: THE INTELLIGENCE-DRUG TRADE CONNECTION SURFACING AGAIN…AND ...
Yesterday I blogged about the curious Pentagram...er...Pentagon case involving unauthorized contracts for silencers for AK-47s, and the possibilities of a rogue group within the American intelligence community. Frankly, I have always subscribed to this view. In fact, if I were hard pressed, I would have to say that such official agencies are really nothing but fronts for a multitude of such rogue groups with their own agendas, operating under the cover that their classification and secret jobs give them. Sometimes they operate in conjunction or coordination with the national interest, sometimes they do not, but they always operate with their own hidden agendas and goals in mind. This isn't to say those agencies do not have dedicated and honest individuals both in analysis and in the "humint" (human intelligence, the professional jargon for the espionage tradecraft) fields. They do. The rogue groups only complicate and tarnish the ability of those agencies to do their job. But the real question, given these caveats, is, how widespread is the rogue phenomenon, and what, really, is its ultimate purpose?
With those questions in mind, RT is reporting on two new movies with precisely this theme:
Decades-old CIA crack-cocaine scandal gains new momentum
As will be evident, these movies concentrate on the allegations of the late Gary Webb, who alleged some sort of CIA (or, to be strictly accurate, rogue CIA-element) connection to the international drug-trade.
There is, however, a key point in this article, and it's worth drawing attention to it:
"While Webb was also criticized for suggesting the CIA intentionally devastated African American communities with crack, he defended himself saying that was not the case.
“'It’s not a situation where the government or the CIA sat down and said, 'Okay, let’s invent crack, let’s sell it in black neighborhoods, let’s decimate black America,' Webb reportedly says in the upcoming documentary. 'It was a situation where, 'We need money for a covert operation, the quickest way to raise it is sell cocaine, you guys go sell it somewhere, we don’t want to know anything about it.''
"Following the scandal, in 1998 the CIA quietly published an internal inspector general’s report into the matter, which prior to its release was much-touted for whitewashing the agency’s reputation. Instead, it seemed to add legitimacy to the accusations, saying, “CIA knowledge of allegations or information indicating that organizations or individuals had been involved in drug trafficking did not deter their use by CIA.” At other times, the “CIA did not act to verify drug trafficking allegations or information even when it had the opportunity to do so.”
“'No information has been found to indicate that CIA informed Congress of eight of the ten Contra-related individuals concerning whom CIA had received drug trafficking allegations or information,' the report added.
In a new post on Democracy Now, a transcript from the documentary “Shadows of Liberty” reveals investigative journalist Robert Parry saying this watchdog report was even more damning for the CIA than the original story.
“'The contents of the reports, if you go into the actual nitty-gritty of them,' he said, 'what you find is that there was a serious problem, that the US government knew about, and that the Contras were far more guilty of drug trafficking and the CIA was more guilty of looking the other way than even Gary Webb had suggested.'” (Emphasis in the original article)
Now why am I bringing these things to your attention, especially in the context with yesterday's blog? You'll recall that one of my hypotheses, outlined in various recent books (most notably Covert Wars and Breakaway Civilizations) is that in the post-World War Two period, a secret system of finance for covert operations and black projects technological research was established. I have suggested, both in that book and in various blogs on this site, that the bearer-bonds scandals were intimately connected to this hidden system of finance. These bonds, you'll recall, involved "gold-backed" bearer bonds denominated in astronomical sums of money.
So what has this to do with Webb's allegations, and the even deeper implications of the statements cited in the article above, that the intelligence-drug traffic connection was or may be even wider than Webb suggested?
It's very simple, when one thinks about it. In my hidden system of finance hypothesis, I have argued that one component of this hidden system of finance was the secret use of recovered Axis loot from World War Two, both Nazi and Japanese. Vast amounts of bullion were involved with this, and one tactic that was implied by this was the deliberate obfuscation of the actual amounts of bullion in existence in the world. On occasion, I have even suggested that the range of these figures from minima to maxima might be off by as much as an order of magnitude. That said, however, even when one factors in the trillions of dollars represented by just the Spanish Bearer Bond Scandal of 2009, or the Italian Bearer Bond scandal of 2012, one is dealing with over $7 trillion dollars, an amount, if the bonds represent actual figures in this hidden system, would seem to exceed those amounts of bullion, even at today's absurdly high prices. Those bonds were reportedly "gold-backed" bearer bonds.
But as Sterling and Peggy Seagrave report in their book Gold Warriors, and as I indicated in Covert Wars and Breakaway Civilizations, the term "gold" in the murky underworld of organized crime and international drug trafficking, is code for drugs themselves. Thus, the "gold-backed" bearer bonds might be taken to indicate not gold backing, but drug backing, requiring a permanent criminalization of drugs to keep prices artificially high, and maintain the cash flow of a vast hidden system of finance for covert operations and black technology research.
And that would, indeed, seem to confirm the veiled admissions of the extent of that involvement suggested in the CIA's own quotations cited above, This would not be a secret widely known within any intelligence agency, much less the CIA, even at senior levels. It would be closely held, of course, and only by a very few. But that secret, in itself, coupled with that decision to create such a system in the first place, would mean that at some level, it was official policy.
See you on the flip side...

You guys ever see the TV show person of interest? I seriously think that our country is as super saturated by surveillance as they portray in the show, surveillance that runs facial and license plate recognition in real time. I live in suburban northwest New Jersey, and we’ve got a pretty large opiate problem. Well last year the DEA rolled into town, busted 30 people who then rolled on another 30 but oddly enough not one of the people busted saw anyone following or watching them until the day they were arrested. In the past, when the cops were investigating on their own you would see them in unmarked cars, watching and doing their normal thing, but once the DEA stepped in it was like they all pulled back but still less than a month later 30+ people were in jail. They not only had the cell phone records of everyone involved but had their dealings and transporting of it on video. They use the highway and traffic light cameras and possibly satellites now to track the transport and sale of the drugs then swoop in to save the day once they’ve logged everyone involved. Oddly enough with all those people in jail the heroin supply coming into town and its quality all increased, I find it hard to believe that they missed anyone or that anyone would have the balls to transport and deal after everything that happened unless they were given permission. To top it off the Local Police took all the credit for the busts even though a month earlier the local newspaper reported that a DEA Task force was in town.
During the BCCI scandal, senior executives of the bank referred to a “black network”. The influence of this “black network” turned out to be so pervasive that even the official investigators of the scandal suspected they had been put under surveillance by this network, which was described as a “a global intelligence operation [with] a Mafia-like enforcement squad”. Only a handful of reporters ever reported on this black network. Among the exceptions was Jack R. Payton, editor of the St. Petersburg Times, who in October 1992 wrote:
“Well I’ve just finished slogging through a 794-page government report on the scandal, and believe me it’s even worse than I thought. Much worse…
“Consider, for a moment, what it might mean to have an organization around that could pull off the following: Manipulate the Central Intelligence Agency and the spy agencies of Britain, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, China, Syria, Israel and who knows how many others all at the same time…; Help Pakistan buy nuclear technology on the international black market…; Launder drug money for the Medellin cocaine cartel in Colombia; Bankroll Abu Nidal, the most notorious terrorist in the world; Handle Manuel Noriega’s finances in Panama; Procure prostitutes, some of them children, for traveling Middle Eastern potentates; Rig international commodity markets so that a few insiders could make hundreds of millions of dollars in a single day; Intimidate potential opponents to the point that they feared for their lives. There’s a lot more, but you get the idea…
“This is scary enough as it is. The reason we may never know is that as thorough as the Senate investigation may have been, it didn’t have access to reams of information that could shed more light on BCCI. The CIA has several hundred reports on BCCI but allowed the subcommittee to look at only three of them. British authorities also have a stockpile of information on BCCI they won’t make available because it was classified by British intelligence, MI-5…
“But despite the years of investigation, the arrests and confiscations, even the Senate subcommittee had to admit that we may never know the full extent of BCCI’s crimes, how many top politicians it bribed or if it really had a so-called “black network” of assassins who would eliminate anyone who got in its way.
“Even so, what we do know about BCCI is mind-boggling. It’s also incredibly complicated – as the Senate subcommittee itself admits, almost beyond comprehension.”
The 1991 Time magazine article on the BCCI scandal:
B.C.C.I.: The Dirtiest Bank of All
How B.C.C.I. and its black network became a financial supermarket for crooks and spies — and how the U.S. is trying to cover up its role
By Jonathan Beaty and S.C. Gwynne/New York
“I could tell you what you want to know, but I must worry about my wife and family — they could be killed.”
— a former top B.C.C.I. officer
“We better not talk about this over the phone. We’ve found some bugs in offices that haven’t been put there by law enforcement.”
— a Manhattan investigator probing B.C.C.I.
ah, the Ethiopian priest class…..very sophisticated group of …well just read Judah in the bible and youll get the picture.
the peon btw is the euro, or you are a peon….in the cove dwellers that occupy europe.
…. nice people on the surface, with big buggy eyes and very very deceptive…. covered btw in a fish call vanda….lots of hermaphrodites in the group…ram biff biff bang.
I find it hard to believe there would be guys in any U.S. agency brave/stupid enough to go rogue on the rogues who have been in place for many decades for any reason short of an effort to liberate us from them. That’s just a bridge too far for me.
I have lived in the Emerald Triangle for most of my adult life. I know quite a few people who have some hair-raising stories.
I know of one dope dealer who decided to upgrade from pot to cocaine many years ago. The people who worked for him begged him not to do it, knowing it was going to put them all in grave danger — not sure exactly who would do it, though heavily suspecting the government — but he was hooked on the cash. After his first attempt at a large cocaine shipment, someone just busted down his front door, shot him to death in front of his six-year-old daughter and walked.
I know of another dope dealer who dealt cocaine wholesale, associated with a man who has been dealing it retail on the Mendocino Coast, with only one short incarceration, for nearly forty years. The wholesaler paid to have a friend of mine’s entire property deer fenced in exchange for letting him bury his cash on his property. The wholesaler got busted, sent away for a very long pull, but was released when he agreed to tell the feds where the money was buried. A military helicopter was flown in from Nevada to pick up the loot and he was released.
The feds are doing it. They knew the wholesaler had been skimming heavily, but couldn’t find the cash. So they busted him, using the retailer for a witness. Then years later, when he couldn’t take prison anymore, they got their money back, dug it up at my friend’s property, and let the wholesaler go… only nobody heard from him ever again. So we’re only 99% sure they killed him.
Again, DECADES. This was going on for decades before Gary Webb’s heroism. The murders. The federally-supplied dealers. And many people on the street were well aware of it, if not able to prove it.
They’re great bosses as long as you either don’t cross them or turn into good patsy material, and there isn’t any doubt about this even in the peon levels by now. I simply cannot believe anyone at agency level would dare cross these psychopaths — even in a nightmare — for only money. Trainees and interns could still be ignorant enough to dream of it, but couldn’t get in position to do it until they’d know better than to try. Everyone in the government may not be dirty by commission, but beyond doubt, ESPECIALLY with the whistleblower fad, nobody’s left who is not dirty by omission… by cowardice.
The ONLY avenue left for anyone inside who won’t clam up and, however miserably, let this stand is to go rogue on the rogues. So this bust is either a clerical error accounting for the unauthorized silencers, or an effort to terrorize freedom fighter insiders.
Gotta wonder why they’ve allowed the legalization of pot in CO / WA and there are 10 other States moving in that direction. Why would they risk that market share and ill-gotten gain? I’m guessing there will be Federal pot legalization if there is a $USD / $FRN devaluation.. They’ll dig up the Fabulous Fury Freak Bros. as spokesmen and try and let pot be the “Legalized Gambling” of the 2010’s..
A friend went to a Zappa Concert in Austin, circa 1977, the “Bongo Fury Tour”. With pot smoke pouring out of the audience, Zappa went to the mic and said “Dope is a plot by the Government to keep young people stupid and w/o ambition.” That made me quit.
I’m not sure why, but they don’t ever seem to have been in as big on pot. Dealers have been able to get as big as they want, for the most part, and stay alive. It’s just when they decide to get into the hard stuff that they and/or their employees start being quite unceremoniously slaughtered. In the old days people thought it could be the mafia OR the feds… not knowing then that they are, in that business, the same thing.
Probably has something to do with how popular pot farming is and how local, how right under our noses it is. If some lawyer’s kid gets offed for dealing pot, that’s just too much hassling from prominent people for justice, when there’s billions more money in cocaine and heroin, AND they’re not being produced here by people with families who will make trouble.
That’s not a problem here and there, but it’s everywhere and so then it becomes a very big problem.
PLUS, the whole pot industry breeds an endless supply of people to hire to do the serious distribution for them.
That’s why it’s not legal everywhere already… long since… and I don’t know what they’re doing in other states, but they are still busting people in California for weed very, very frequently. The state can’t/won’t stop them.
So, really, maybe it will mess them up a little if/when pot gets decriminalized, but then it will be a good source for regular tax revenues and it’s not going to slow their real income streams much at all.
I loved Frank, but I don’t think pot or LSD or other psychedelics kept that many young people stupid. I think the stupid ones stayed stupid and the smart ones stayed smart, whether they quit or not.
A lot hinges on stupid people and smart people being exposed to real information… something too rare in the United States, and becoming steadily more so with every passing day.
That’s why I love to read and hear Dr. Farrell. I mean, yes, his high octane speculation is great fun, but the real information is better.
I MAKE ” TRANYA ” FOR THE FEDERATION & THE DRACOS. IF YOU WOULD LIKE A FREE SAMPLE, VISIT MY WEBSITE :
Here in OZ they are constantly reporting “major drug busts”, you know how it goes with “tons” of drugs seized by police and customs officials.
And yet I can walk into any corner pub in Sydney and buy whatever form of drug you can name. Boy, that war on drugs is really working and will be the bane of drug lords the world over.
So, who is kiddin who here ??????
Just Ask Donald Mackay!
They aren’t lying about the busts, they bust their competitors and then sell their product.
As I have posted before drug pushing is the foundation of Western Imperialism-Capitalism. The drugs that they push may change to their different victims. But the end result is the same enslave and death when you outlive your usefulness to them. And just because your (white) will not guarantee your life. The black coon my last longer because they consider them more valuable in the long haul than you.
I made an omission in my last post on the death of the French Oil Exec.. I should have said “the $FRN is an Oil, Blood and Drug soaked backed debt instrument” During the late 80’s / early 90’s I was on Active Duty in the National Guard on Counter Narcotics Ops in two different States . One State was on the Gulf Coast and the other on the MX border. There was scuttlebutt about Air Force assets smuggling cocaine into SC L.A. 6 – 9 mos. prior to Gary Webb’s SJMN story. At that same time Col. Bo Gritz was making allegations that drugs were being smuggled via drilling rigs off the Gulf. A few mos prior to hearing his allegations, I was in the process of putting together a surveillance team to observe possible Oil support vessel smuggling activity at the request of a local LEA Narcotics Office. The operation never got off the ground the top LEA official shut it down. Oil rig traffic is exempt from any Customs or LEA scrutiny. The Police may go after the rig workers for petty amounts of drugs. But never the oil company..YAAC (Yet Another Amazing Coincidence).
The justification for the CIA to monopolize world drug trafficking is becuz any country that did could threaten the US militarily.. How thoughtful of them.
Wow never knew that oil rig traffic was exempt from customs. I bet a lot more than drugs passes through them.
If you want to find where the Nazi International is, look toward the intelligence agencies of the West. The kicker is, we invited them into these agencies freely. There should be little doubt these are the rogue factions within these agencies. They most likely are also deeply involved in think tanks such as the CFR, Tri Lateral Commission, etc. as well as the eugenics movement among the elites.
They are still striving toward world domination and ethnic cleansing from the shadows. Couple this with their “area 51” in South America and 60 years to slowly expand their corruption so as not to raise alarm and what have you got: Amerika 2014. A nation they despise for its role in their defeat and the subsequent humiliation, splitting and quarantining of their homeland. Couple this with the theft of their technology at the time and the acquisition of their top scientists which we stupidly placed in key positions within our industrial complex.
Yet you wonder why we have a Fascist police state government, our foreign policy is insanely counter productive, all our manufacturing capabilities are overseas, our economy is in shambles, they want our guns, half the nation is on government subsidies, our borders are wide open, and we have “Homeland Security”.
It’s as if we turned the clock back to 1940 and placed Adolf Obama Hitler in the white house to soon become the sovereign ruler of this nation, not by law but by decree through the use of executive orders.
America could have never been subjugated from without, but from within it seems all too easy. In our complacency, distracted by the propaganda MSM machine and leisure activities gone wild we have allowed this to come about over several generations. If you want to know whose to blame you need only to look into the mirror.
The are two other books on this subject matter that are also of note.
Aids, Opium, Diamonds, and Empire/The Deadly Virus of Informational Greed by Nancy Turner Banks, M.D.
Mundos vult decipi, ergo decipiatur
The world wants to be deceived so let it be deceived. Her conclusion is that no better control of the disembodied mob has been devised than to delude them into accomplishing their own subjugation and enslavement. The only promise of a “Free Market” is a world of landless farmers, shuttered factories, jobless workers and gutted social programs with “bitter economic medicine( & literally, as well, crack cocaine, vaccines, u-name-it) under WTO(soon to be TPP, or some other monstrosity) and IMF(SDRs) constituting the only prescription.
The other one is American War Machine/Deep Politics, The CIA, Global Drug Connection, and the Road To Afghanistan by Peter Dale Scott whose theme is the threat to the public state from the private & corporate wealth. In country after country crony capitalism and the absence of currency oligarchical superrich tycoons in media, pharmaceuticals, defense, banking, etc., to continue plundering their respective countries. The New Russian Oligarchy, The New Mexican Oligarchy are just a couple of recent examples. These mafia elements have certain elements in common….
The above is an outer layer of the onion. When you peel this away, you find the hidden system of finance that Dr. Farrell speaks of just below it. Those who want a “better world” must dig down and find the roots and pull. The do the impossible…
PULL THEM OUT!!!!!
she just wrote a more elaborate version of the works by Adam Smith, the original Agent Smith of the matrix. Probably from a elite viewpoint, and perhaps disgusted by it. We all have days like that.
all the worlds a stage…Imagine your dreams, create it, live it.
The dichotomy system is a mind trap, a corruption in the matrix, a virus.
I am reminded of a line from the bible, cant remember it verbatim,…look, this is new…no, this has been done before…there is nothing new under the sun.
The we need a new sun.
Hidden gold, drugs, launderers under the guise of magnates and oligarchs who have a hidden hand in politics..and of course inculcate and manipulate mass perception
This might explain the name given to the heroin growing region of South Asia: Golden Triangle. So close to the CIA’s original Vietnam heroin smuggling operation out of Saigon. And who can forget the 1970’s when North America was flooded with marijuana grown in Mexico called Acapulco Gold? And when heroin finally leaped beyond returning veterans and ghetto residents and found its way into all strata of western society by the early 1980’s, who can forget the lovely appellation given it: Golden Brown.
Remember this classic song ” Golden Brown” from the Stranglers:
Could this be an earlier incarnation of Dr. Farrell: A mop haired harpsichordist in a seminal 1980’s new wave band singing about the golden treasure of the CIA drug trade? Possibly Dr. Farrell was moonlighting at night in the UK music scene while studying at Oxford by day? And notice the images of the Giza pyramids in the video. Possibly a young Dr. Farrell just starting to formulate his views which would find its way into his books and possibly even a little predictive programming to boot? You decide.
lol, Frankie, check the “time” on the vid…fess up there Dr Farell.
Great post there “NINES”…there is certainly something taboo about Cocaine. Pharohs mummmies test positive for it, the royal circles of Victoria England were all hooked on it, the snuff boxes and the black rotten teeth are a indication of its misuse. Even Frankenfurter thought it was the “candy man” at the door when Brad and J anet knocked.
The thing with Coke, is …you’ll squander everything for the next hit. Personally I have seen perfectly normal people, with perfectly normal lives that were utterly destroyed by it…. If you wanted to destroy a nation from within, centralize it, get the leaders hooked on the stuff…pretty good weapon too achieve that objective….fantasy land.
Speaking of movies, there’s cocaine starring Johnny depp….it stopped short, with him going to jail, but the lame stream media continued on, with general pine apple holed up in a church with the marines blasting heavy metal music and a bunch of loot missing.
