(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.
