(Originally broadcast 1993; 15.4 hours)

This massive series details the complicity of elements of U.S. intelligence with international terrorists and examines the evolution of the U.S. government’s inter-agency counter-terrorist networks.

The program documents the involvement of elements of U.S. intelligence with: weapons and drug smuggler Monzer Al-Kassar; the Gander, Newfoundland crash of December 1985; the Achille Lauro hi-jacking; the formation and installation of fundamentalist forces in Iran, as well as their takeover of the U.S. Embassy; other key events in the terrorism of the 1970s and 80s.

Of particular interest is the landmark research of Fara Mansoor, a member of the Iranian resistance whose historic research on the rise of the Khomeini regime documents the decisive role of the United States in developing Islamic fundamentalist forces in that country as the anti-communist successors to the Shah’s government. Fara has documented that U.S. Ambassador to Iran, Richard Helms, learned that the Shah had cancer in 1974. Former Director of Central Intelligence Helms promptly informed the CIA and Department of State with the result that, by 1976, George Bush’s CIA was actively supporting and grooming the Khomeini forces.

The subsequent takeover of the U.S. embassy in Teheran, the withholding of the U.S. hostages until after President Carter’s defeat was assured, the Khomeini government itself and the Iran-Contra scandal proper were all outgrowths of this profound and long-standing relationship.

It should be noted that parts of this relationship have been misunderstood as what has become known as “the October Surprise.” Although there was, massive collusion between the Reagan-Bush campaign and the Khomeini forces during the 1980 election campaign, there was no “deal” cut during the campaign. Rather, the “deal” was part of a covert operation begun years before and the collusion during the campaign was an outgrowth of it.

Much of the series is devoted to the evolution of the inter-agency counter-terror networks that grew out of the Vice-President’s Task Force on combating terrorism, headed by George Bush. These inter-agency networks were utilized by Oliver North and company during the Contra war to bypass the Boland Amendment forbidding aid to the Contras.

AFA #38 documents the people and elements involved in precipitating terrorism through the Vice-President’s Task Force, the inter-agency networks growing out of the Task Force, and the Contra support effort that utilized those networks.

The working hypothesis is set forth that the aforementioned terrorism and the networks stemming from the Vice-President’s Task Force constitute a “creeping Reichstag” scenario. The government’s counter-terrorist networks have served as a government within a government, and permitted Oliver North and other perpetrators of the Iran-Contra scandal to bypass democratic process. The terrorism that served as the justification for these networks appears to have been precipitated, in part, to justify their creation.

One of the provisions set up by National Security Directives issued by the Vice-President’s Task Force is the martial-law contingency plan developed under the auspices of the National Security Council and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (see AFA program number #32). A major episode of the series is its analysis of the Los Angeles riots of 1992, and evidence suggesting they were deliberately precipitated as a trial run for martial law contingency plans.

The concluding portion of the program discusses both the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center and the siege of the Branch Davidian compound at Waco against the background of these martial law contingency plans. Both incidents, the program suggests, may be part of a de-stabilization program directed against Bill Clinton, by the faction of the national security establishment connected to the Reagan-Bush administrations.

  6. Great Episode once again you’ve forced me to completely rethink history. A great continuation of the Iran/Contra series Who Shot the Pope, The CIA the Military and Drugs, and Iran Contra. I came across these interesting Excerpts from the Book Rollback while researching my Iran Contra article (wish I’d listened to this sooner) and it defintely ties in with the secret team antics and reagan era madness and cold war history although they underestimate rollback in europe.

  7. Interesting about the Croatian Connection, as Peter Dale Scott Discusses in the “Road to 911” the 93 WTC bombing network was protected because it was involved in sending fighters to Yugoslavia.
    I just reread this epic article on the history of “Counter Terror” (often a code word for terror) from Doug Valentine (The Phoenix Program, Strength of the Wolf) that ties in closely with this episode with an in depth discussion of North’s “counter terror” network
