This broadcast continues analysis of the political, economic and strategic alliances, relationships and conflicts underlying the 9/11 attacks. These relationships will be discussed at greater length below. If one could sum up the 9/11 attacks in one sentence, it might be as follows. If Adolf Hitler had been in the White House when Pearl Harbor was attacked this is what you would be seeing. 9/11 constitutes the most dramatic and visible (though not necessarily the most important) element in an observable continuation of World War II. This war is being waged between the United States, the Underground Reich and its Islamofascist allies.
The broadcast begins with discussion of five articles in the same edition of The Financial Times. (Three of these were set forth at the end of FTR 365.) As we saw in FTR 353, the U.S. economy is dependent on direct net foreign investment in order to counterbalance the growing current accounts deficit. Direct net foreign investment decreased from $200 billion in 2000. It dropped to slightly over $2.1 billion in 2001. In that regard, the economic effect of the threat of terrorism (including weapons of mass destruction) should be taken into account. After September 11, Osama Bin Laden called for his followers to attack targets that would damage the U.S. economy.
1. Investors should be greatly cheered by Mr. Rumsfeld’s recent statements. “Terrorists will inevitably get their hands on chemical, biological and nuclear weapons and use them against the U.S., Donald Rumsfeld, the U.S. defense secretary, said yesterday.” (“Mass Destruction Weapons Attack ‘Inevitable’” by Lydia Adetunji; Financial Times; 5/22/2002; p. 6.)
2. The same day that Rumsfeld’s comments were made, the capital markets reflected investor anxiety. “U.S. equities fell sharply, accelerating losses late in the session as more warnings of possible terrorist attacks sent jitters through Wall Street.” (“Terror Alerts Accelerate Wall Street Losses” by Mary Chung; Financial Times; 5/22/2002; p. 36.)
3. “A slide in stocks yesterday helped government bonds hold on to their gains of Monday with investors also favoring Treasuries amid nervousness over further possible terrorist attacks . . . Concerns are mounting over a possible fall in foreign investment as the U.S. dollar weakens against the yen.” (“Terror Fears Trigger Run for Havens” by Jenny Wiggins, James Politi, and Ken Hijino; Financial Times; 5/22/2002; p. 24.) The 9/11 attacks and the threat of more devastating assaults threaten to bankrupt the American economy. The Bush/Republican tax cuts and resulting current accounts deficit will destroy the country as effectively as an Al Qaeda nuke. This is particularly true in light of the military buildup that is taking place. The buildup, necessary under the circumstances, must be done intelligently. The increase would not necessarily be a large percentage of GDP, however if the “Maginot Missile Defense” is implemented, it will draw essential resources away from other valuable programs, civilian and military.This is particularly true if Bush’s tax cuts go through.
4. Next, the broadcast focuses on geo-political maneuvering between the U.S. and Germany. Note that (like the first three articles above) both of the following stories are from the same edition of the Financial Times. One of the pivotal elements in the geo-political struggle between the United States and the Underground Reich is the American relationship to Russia. “As President George W. Bush begins his visit to Europe today, it could be argued that Europe should be in a better mood. Germany is united. The cold war is over. The European Union is about to embark on an historic enlargement Eastwards. But collectively, America’s European Union allies are in a grumpy mood, not only because of Washington’s growing unilateralist stance on trade, global warming and other foreign policy issues. . . . Rather, it is Washington’s very success with Moscow that is causing the unhappiness.” (“Links with Putin Leave Europe out in the Cold” by Judy Dempsey; Financial Times; 5/22/2002; p. 2.)
5. In the context of the discussion that follows, one should not lose sight of the fact that the EU, as well as the European Monetary Union are dominated by Germany and the Underground Reich. “‘Europe does not have a global security role at present because it lacks capabilities. Nor does it have a strategy for Russia,’ said Sergei Kortunov, vice-president of the Moscow-based Foreign Policy Association. ‘Yet in the long run, it is Europe to which Russia will rejoin. Europe must be ready.’” (Idem.)
6. “The Europeans are far from ready to deal with Russia, even though EU enlargement to eastern and central Europe runs the risk of exacerbating Russian fears of isolation.” (Idem.)
7. “Enlargement is making the EU inward-looking instead of developing its relations with Russia,’ said Christopher Langton, defense analyst at London’s International Institute for Strategic Studies. He argued that even though the EU bemoans its lack of military capabilities and defense spending, it could easily lese from Russia airlift transportation, the key equipment it lacks. Europe could seize that advantage but it refuses to do so for national or bureaucratic reasons,’ added Mr. Langton. ‘Europe should grasp Putin’s pragmatism. Time is not limitless.” (Idem.)
8. The U.S./Underground Reich struggle also embraces Germany’s long-sought position on the U.N. Security Council. “The new alliance between Russia and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization has undermined Germany’s long-held ambition to become a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, diplomats said yesterday.” (“Nato-Russia Alliance Hits Germany’s U.N. Amtitions” by Carola Hoyos, Financial Times; 5/22/2002; p. 2.)
9. “‘The new alliance will play into the debate on the Security Council expansion,’ said one western diplomat. ‘Now that four out of the five permanent members are practically Nato, it will have an impact on Germany’s chances.’” (Idem.)
10. Bearing in mind the concept of the “Earth Island”, note the situation vis-à-vis India. “India, which is also vying for a permanent seat at the table, has seized on the announcement. Vijay Nambiar, the country’s ambassador to the U.N., said: ‘The essential question is the establishment of a better balanced Security Council. The Russian movement towards Nato would in fact be positive in our view and would add to the rationale [of India gaining a permanent seat].’” (Idem.)
11. Another major geo-political consideration is the effect of the proposed Caspian Sea/Afghan pipeline. Should the long-standing hostilities between India and Pakistan erupt into nuclear war this might very well mandate a European route for any accessing of Caspian fuels. In that context, contemplate the possible role of Al Qaeda in exacerbating India/Pakistan tensions. “Hundreds of al Qaeda and former Taliban fighters are operating in the Indian sector of Kashmir, according to a member of the state’s parliament and its police chief.” (“Prominent Kashmiris Say Al Qaeda is There” by Anna Badkhen; San Francisco Chronicle; 6/23/2002; p. A12.)
12. “The startling claims by Kashmiri legislator Javed Hussain Shah and top police official A.K. Suri come on the heels of assertions by India and the United States that Al Qaeda fighters may be active in Kashmir.” (Idem.)
13. “Of course al Qaeda fighters are here,’ Shah said, ‘Hundreds of them.’” (Idem.) Whether or not Mr. Shah’s assessment is accurate, it is certain that Al Qaeda is in Pakistan itself and that Germany played a prominent in the development of the Pakistani nuclear capability.
14. In attempting to understand the complexities of the Underground Reich’s attack on the United States, it is important to assess the retrenchment of the American/German economic axis at the end of World War II in the context of the Cold War, in particular the concept of renascent Nazi elements using anti-communism as a vehicle for world conquest. In addition, one should remember that the Gehlen organization was serving as a Trojan Horse. Like the Islamofascists with which the U.S. identified itself during the Afghan war against the Soviets in the 1980s, its erstwhile Nazi allies were dedicated to destroying the U.S. (eventually). Bear in mind that the Underground Reich and the Yockeyites were also working with the Soviets, playing both sides against the middle.
15. In that context, we present the observations of James Stewart Martin. Martin was in charge of the economic warfare section of the antitrust division of the Department of Justice during the Second World War. As such, he was in charge of attempting to interdict the economic forces underlying the Third Reich.
16. Martin cited the experience of former German Chancellor Heinrich Bruning, deposed by the Nazi seizure of power. “Dr. Bruning’s story was one of being always a step behind the events. By his own account he never knew what hit him until after he had been deposed and w hiding out in the mountains of Austria. While gangs of nazis combed the countryside looking for him, he spent his days reading and for the first time understanding Thucydides’s classic history of the Peloponnesian War: a work that generations of British diplomats have used for a teething ring, and that Dr. Bruning had carried with him from his early youth. As he reread Thucydides’s story of ancient power struggles, he suddenly began to realize what forces had been combined against him in Germany: how under the pressure of administration he had assented to decrees that weakened the ‘equal protection of the laws,’ and how large-scale economic forces had made inevitable some developments he had tried to stem by ‘voluntary’ agreements among business interests.” (All Honorable Men; James Stewart Martin; Copyright 1950 [HC]; Little, Brown & Co.; pp. 5–6.)
17. Bruning’s experiences did not seem to fully register. “Even in the retelling, however, it seemed to me that Dr. Bruning again showed some of his former blindness. The main point in Thucydides’s history was the discovery of the large part that economic forces play in bringing nations into conflict. Yet, even when pressed by questions, Dr. Bruning showed no particular concern over the role of the large German industrial corporations. He related the entire story of Franz Von Papen’s intrigues, his posting of gunmen to prevent Bruning from seeing the aging Von Hindenburg, and the other events of the last days, without once alluding to Von Papen’s conferences with the bankers and the Rhineland industrialists who agreed to back Hitler and who put up the funds. It was, throughout, a story of politics without economics: a story of a man who had felt that no harm could come from temporary dictatorship so long as the laws and the courts protected civil rights, who showed no feeling for the ways in which great economic power and unlimited funds could get around an inconvenient legalism.” Thucydides’ account should inform our present situation. (Ibid.; p. 6.)
18. Next, the program sets forth Martin’s analysis of the ecopolitical continuity practiced by German power brokers. The chapter quoted here is titled (appropriately) “The Decline and Fall.” “General [Lucius] Clay [in charge of the occupation of Germany] exhibited a well-developed historical sense. Yet a future generation of historians may find that, ironically, it was this sense of history, combined with the lifetime habits of a military career, that contributed most to the defeat of the occupation. General Clay, in my first talk with him in January 1946, said that he was determined to make the four-power occupation succeed. He was convinced that failure to make four-power government work would be a catastrophe, and perhaps the biggest single step toward a third world conflict.” (Ibid.; p. 235.)
19. Note the importance of Prussian military theoretician Von Clausewitz on the thinking of German ecopolitical strategists. “The end of battle in 1945 had singled the start of a new kind of war—a post-war. Germany’s classical military theorist, Von Clausewitz, is famous for having declared that ‘war is the continuation of diplomacy by other means.’ In dealing with a Germany which had gone to school with Von Clausewitz for generations, we knew that, conversely, a post-war is the continuation of war by other means. Since Bismarck, wars and post-wars have formed a continuous series, changing the quality of the events only slightly from year to year, with no such thing as a clear distinction between heat of battle and calm of peace. This post-war of the German occupation was different from the ‘cold war’ between the United States and Russia, which broke out at about the same time. The latter complicated the diagnosis, like a man getting typhoid fever and pneumonia at the same time.” (The German ecopolitical maneuvering had successfully confused the issues, to their great advantage. (Idem.)
20. Martin is sympathetic to the forces that manipulated General Clay—a resolved and sincerely patriotic man. He was among those successfully and tragically subverted. “In the first years of the occupation of Germany, the two struggles had not yet become confused. General Clay said the best contribution we could make to peace would be to get four-power co-operation in carrying out the agreements for the control of Germany.” (Idem.)
21. “Later others with less historical sense began to support anti-Russian Germans on the theory that ‘any enemy of Russia is a friend of the United States.’ The two wars became interwoven, and men who saw no difference came to make up the effective bulk of General Clay’ staff. When the Economics division chose to ignore agreements to limit heavy industry and expand light industry, this departure was ‘necessary’ to build up a strong Germany. When the French or Russians objected to economic ‘unity’ under the leadership of old-line Ruhr coal and steel men, the same people held that failure of the French and Russians to live up to the Potsdam agreement for economic unity was an act of international bad faith. Here, instead of cracking down on his own staff, General Clay let the pendulum swing. He allowed his sense of history to tell him such developments were inevitable.” (Ibid.; p. 236.)
22. “It was a fair guess that confusing the cold war with the post-war was leading to competitive wooing of the most strongly entrenched German elements. That would mean the end of reforms—not merely the end of decartelization but denazification, but of land reforms, intensive agriculture, the rebalancing of heavy and light industry, political decentralization, re-education, and the others. But the ‘civilian’ and ‘military’ habits under such circumstances are sometimes different. A civilian may fight back on a matter of principle and if defeated will resign. The military habit is to argue back until stopped by a direct order from higher authority and then knuckle under. General Clay, sensing a swing of the pendulum or a wave of the future, had held his fire in cases when he, as ‘higher authority,’ had the power to give a direct order. As a result, he was steadily losing both civilians and officers who had been in charge of the ‘reform’ programs. The fights for the reform programs looked like mere quarreling if the opponents of reform were not declared ‘wrong’. Yet the reform policies remained ‘unchanged,’ while the reforms were totally blocked.” (Ibid.; pp.237–238.)
23. Next, the program highlights Martin’s observations about the nature of the forces that had defeated his and his colleague’s efforts. This analysis is important to remember in the context of some of the discussion about whether or not it was “the government” that “did” 9/11. Would that it were so simple. “After two and a half years, I came back from Germany quite well aware that I had been wrestling with a buzz saw. We had not been stopped in German by German business. We had been stopped in Germany by American business.” (Ibid.; 264.)
24. “The forces that stopped us had operated from the United States and had not operated in the open. We sere not stopped by a law of congress, by an executive order of the President, or even a change of policy approved by the President or any member of his cabinet. In short, whatever it was that had stopped us was not ‘the government’ But it clearly had command of channels through which the government normally operates.” (Ibid.; p. 264.)
25. One of the major sticking points for many of Dulles’ co-conspirators was Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and his New Deal. “In the United States in 1933. President Roosevelt tried to establish a government powerful enough to talk back to the private operators. For a time the Roosevelt government asserted its right to control business activities wherever they might affect the public interest. But with the outbreak of war, men who had been on the outside during this New Deal Era. Cursing ‘that man’ from their chairs in the Union League had to be called to Washington. The government of the United States found that it was in no position to fight a war unless it made a deal with the powers in control of the country’s productive capacity.” (Ibid.; pp. 264–265.)
26. The European and global center of this power axis was the remarkable and deadly Bormann organization, which these programs have discussed so often. The secrecy of this power center, even to some of those who were encharged with neutralizing it. “Even today, however, there are U.S. Treasury old-timers of World War II still not aware of the magnitude of the Bormann operation and of its success. Those who know, in Washington, in South America, and in the capitols of Europe, are locked together in a conspiracy of silence that has endured for thirty-seven years until the publication of this work.” (Martin Bormann: Nazi in Exile; Paul Manning; Copyright 1981 [HC]; Lyle Stuart Inc.; ISBN 0–8184-0309–8; p. 152.)
27. “In this silent contest during the wind down years of World War II, Orvis A. Schmidt was not to emerge victor over Martin Bormann, although he tried. Tirelessly, he told assorted Senate committees what was happening, spoke of the extent of the German plan, and urged a new dedication to stopping the flight-capital blitzkrieg, with the prescient warning, ‘It is these new concentrations of economic power which will enable Germany to rise again.’” (Idem.)
28. “Orvis A. Schmidt felt that he was a man crying in the wilderness as he gave testimony before Senate committees. The mood of the country and the marketplace was similar: get our boys home and get on with the business of making money and building new homes and stabilizing the economy for the bumper crop of babies which was sure to come. When Orvis Schmidt told the Senators the extent of German economic infiltration into the foreign countries even before VE-day and that the Germans intended to preserve this vast hidden economic structure in order to rise again, he knew instinctively that he had failed to catch the interest of the American lawmakers.” (Idem.)
29. “Schmidt testified: ‘The danger does not lie so much in the fact that the German industrial giants have honeycombed the neutrals, Turkey and Argentina, with branches and affiliates which know how to subvert their commercial interests to the espionage sabotage demands of their government. It is important and dangerous, however, that many of these branches, subsidiaries, and affiliates in the neutrals and much of the cash, securities, patents, contracts and so forth, are ostensibly owned through the medium of secret numbered accounts or rubric accounts, trusts, loans, holding companies, bearer shares, and the like by dummy persons and companies claiming neutral nationality and all of the alleged protection and privileges arising from such identities. The real problem is to break the veil of secrecy and reach and eliminate the German ability to finance another world war. We must render useless the devices and cloaks which have been employed to hide German assets.” (Ibid.; pp. 152–3.)
30. Next, the program highlights FDR’s plan to ensnare the American end of the Underground Reich’s German ecopolitical arm and (employing the testimony of their Nazi colleagues), and try them at Nuremberg for war crimes. Note that Operation Safehaven was the code-name for the U.S. Treasury Department and British intelligence operation to track the Bormann flight capital program. “All through the war, Roosevelt had reluctantly caved in to British demands that the Jewish issue be ignored, that the concentration camp victims must be expendable to the war effort. But the one issue upon which Roosevelt was unyielding was his insistence that after the war, the German bankers must stand in the dock at the Nuremberg war crimes trial. This is confirmed by the top-secret White House—Justice Department correspondence files.” (The Secret War Against the Jews: How Western Espionage Betrayed the Jewish People; John Loftus and Mark Aarons; Copyright 1994 [HC]; St. Martin’s Press; ISBN 0–312-11057-X; p. 77.)
31. “The plan was to wait until [Deutsche Bank chief Hermann] Abs, Krupp, [industrialist Friedrich] Flick, and the rest of the industrialists were charged. Then Morgenthau would unleash the wiretap evidence showing that the Nazis had hidden their stolen assets in Switzerland, with the help of Allen Dulles. The whole scandal of Western aid to the German economy would unravel. All the slights of the Standard Oil blackmail would be avenged.” (Idem.)
32. In this context, one should not lose sight of the fact that George W.‘s grandfather (Prescott Bush, Sr.) and great grandfather (George Herbert Walker might very well have been either witnesses and/or defendants in the case.)
33. “The sudden release of the Safehaven intercepts would force a public outcry to bring treason charges against those British and American businessmen who aided the enemy in time of war. The targets included not only the Dulles brothers, but [Dillon & Read executive and Secretary of the Navy James] Forrestal and major industrialists, such as Henry Ford. From a prosecutor’s point of view, indicting the German bankers first was a brilliant strategy. To save themselves, Herman Abs and Hjalmar Schacht would have to reveal the whole history of their sordid dealings with companies such as Ford Motor.” (Ibid.; pp. 77–78.)
34. “Despite the shields of Swiss banking laws and the layers of corporations that Dulles had erected, he had never anticipated that the Swiss bank codes and cables would ever become public knowledge. Roosevelt and [Treasury Secretary] Henry Morgenthau would have hanged him and all his colleagues, forever breaking the power of the pirates of international finance. It was a glorious dream. Yet the scheme completely fell apart because someone tipped off Dulles that he was under surveillance.” (Ibid,; p. 78.)
35. Dulles was apparently tipped off in advance of what was underway. “Because he learned about the Safehaven intercepts so quickly, Dulles knew that there was no smoking gun against him. His work for the Nazis prior to the war was not illegal, let alone treasonous. His wartime communications with the Nazis, although highly embarrassing, could be excused as an exercise in deception or as part of his intrigues to overthrow Hitler. Although many of his wartime actions were unauthorized, they were not criminal.” (Ibid,; p. 79.)
36. “What was criminal was the way that Dulles was trying to help the German industrialists get their money out at the end of the war. After the Nazis’ 1943 defeat at Stalingrad, various Nazi businessmen realized they were on the losing side and made plans to evacuate their wealth. The Peron government in Argentina was receiving the Nazi flight capital with open arms, and Dulles helped it hide the money. This was more than a violation of the Trading with the Enemy Act; giving aid and comfort to the enemy in time of war was treason. Once again, however, Allen Dulles was one step ahead of his pursuers.” (Idem.)
37. Much of this vital history remains obscured to this day. Dulles successfully used his employment with the CIA and its OSS predecessor to falsify the legal and historical record of his activities. Again, it is important to remember that Dulles had masked the Third Reich assets of the George Herbert Walker and Prescott Bush. “Dulles and some of his friends volunteered for postwar service with the government not out of patriotism but of necessity. They had to be in positions of power to suppress the evidence of their own dealings with the Nazis. The Safehaven investigation was quickly stripped from Treasury, where Morgenthau’s supporters were still influential, and turned over to the State Department. There Dulles’s friends shredded the index to the interlocking corporations and blocked further investigations.” (Ibid.; p. 100.)
38. “Dulles had this goal in mind: Not a single American businessman was ever going to be convicted of treason for helping the Nazis. None ever was, despite the evidence. According to one of our sources in the intelligence community, the U.S. Army Counter Intelligence Corps had two large ‘Civilian Internment Centers’ in Occupied Germany, code named ‘Ashcan’ and ‘Dustbin.’ The CIC had identified and captured a large number of U.S. citizens who had stayed in Germany and aided the Third Reich all through World War II. The evidence of their treason was overwhelming. The captured German records were horribly incriminating.” (Idem.)
39. American collaborators who had been based in Germany throughout the war were repatriated, without being prosecuted. Within this milieu was doubtless a large contingent who would have worked for the Underground Reich. “Yet Victor Wohreheide, the young Justice Department attorney responsible for preparing the treason trials, suddenly ordered the prisoners’ release. All of the Nazi collaborators were allowed to return to the United States and reclaim their citizenship. At the same time, another Justice Department attorney, O. John Rogge, who dared to make a speech about Nazi collaborators in the United States was quickly fired. However, the attorney who buried the treason cases was later promoted to special assistant attorney general.” (Ibid.; pp. 100–101.)
40. Looming large in the background of the events of 9/11 and struggle for control over the “Earth Island” is the Israeli/Palestinian issue. Truman reversed Roosevelt’s policy of friendly neutrality toward Dulles associate Ibn Saud (one of whose associates and friends was Mohammed Bin Laden). Truman endorsed the establishment of Israel. “To the utter dismay of the pirates of Wall Street and their friends in the Truman administration, the new president dismissed these scare tactics. Worse, he reversed the commitments that Roosevelt had made to Ibn Saud. Truman had more regard for the probable influence of the American Jewish community on his reelection prospects than he did for the anti-Semites of the State Department.” (Ibid.; p. 100.)
41. “Six months into his presidency, Truman assembled his top Middle East advisers, who were deeply concerned at the Arabs’ hostility toward the new president’s pro-Zionist tilt. As hard as they tried, they could not bring him around. Harry Truman did not want to be a one-term, unelected president. He wanted to win the 1948 election and claim the mantle in his own right. Even in 1945, Truman knew there might be just enough Jews in the United States to tip the 1948 election, while Arabs were a negligible electoral quantity. Roosevelt’s policy of neutrality in favor of the Arabs was dead, at least as far as the new president was concerned.” (Idem.)
42. Remember that in the wake of Dewey’s loss to Truman, the Dulles/Nixon/Bush/Reagan/Casey precipitated the Crusade For Freedom, which, in turn, helped to spawn the Ethnic Outreach organization of the GOP. A repository for fugitive Third Reich and fascist elements from Europe in the post war years, the organization incorporated Wahhabiite/Islamofascist elements during the 1980’s.
43. Note that this took place during the Afghan/Soviet war of the 1980’s. An element of commonality between the European fascist and Islamofascist elements of the GOP Ethnic organizations is the former World Anti-Communist League. Many of the European fascists belonged to the Anti-Bolshevik Nations, a pivotal WACL element. Founded by the Grand Mufti and financed largely from Saudi Arabia, the WACL– associated World Muslim Congress was an important element in the Afghan effort against the Soviets. This same struggle saw the genesis of Osama Bin Laden as a warrior.
44. In noting the milieu involved in the development of the Islamofascist /Underground Reich connection is Francois Genoud, in turn closely associated with Dulles associates, such as Himmler’s adjutant Karl Wolff. “Genoud, too, was in the thick of things, having established a friendship with SS General Karl Wolff, leader of the German team in Italy that negotiated Operation Sunrise with Dulles. Shortly after the war, Genoud acquired the publishing rights to the works of Adolf Hitler, Martin Bormann, and Joseph Goebbels. He also played a major, in murky, role in aiding fugitive Nazi war criminals.” (Dreamer of the Day: Francis Parker Yockey and the Postwar Fascist International; by Kevin Coogan; Copyright 1999 [SC]; ISBN 1–57027-039–2; p. 585.)
45. Genoud was also close to former Nazi finance minister Hjalmar Schacht, another of Dulles’ colleagues and key member of the postwar Nazi underground. Note that Von Leers was mentor to Ahmed (nee Albert) Huber, an ardent Nazi and director of Al Taqwa. “In 1955, with the Grand Mufti’s friend Johann von Leers helping to run Egypt’s Propaganda Ministry and its all-important ‘Institute for the Study of Zionism,’ Genoud began to see Egypt as a base for the anti-French FLN independence movement in Algeria. He worked in Tangier with an ex-SS officer named Hans Reichenberg to create the Arabo-Afrika import-export company, which supplied the FLN with weapons. Arabo-Afrika was actually a cover enterprise established by Werner Naumann’s network, and included Genoud’s friend Dr. Hjalmar Schacht.” (Idem.)
46. Another intelligence/lynchpin of the Dulles/Bush/Bormann milieu was OPC commissioner Frank Wisner. Author Dick Russell discussed Wisner’s (possibly fatal) anxiety about Martin Bormann in the wake the assassination of President Kennedy. “Another figure who ended up deeply tormented was Frank Wisner, the CIA’s original man in charge of bringing over the Nazi scientists under ‘Paperclip,’ and with establishing the Gehlen, Ukrainian, and White Russian underground movements in Europe. In 1961, after suffering two nervous breakdowns in recent years, Wisner left the CIA but kept his interest in agency affairs.” (The Man Who Knew Too Much; by Dick Russell; Carroll & Graf; Copyright 1992 [HC]; ISBN 0–88184-900–6; p. 682.)
47. “Apparently sometime not long after the Kennedy assassination, as Wisner’s daughter Wendy recalled to author Burton Hersh, her father became obsessed with the world he had been so enmeshed in creating. Wisner began talking about his belief that Martin Bormann, Hitler’s leading henchman, had escaped Berlin at the end of the war and resettled in Latin America. ‘He was on a thing about this,’ Hersh quotes Wendy Wisner in his 1992 book The Old Boys, ‘that we should pool our sources and resources and get Bormann. He talked about the ‘mysterious and sinister figure of Martin Bormann.’ He wrote millions of letters. If there really was a CIA connection to Bormann in South America, who knows if he wasn’t feeling terrible about it? If he’s starting to yell and scream about these Nazis, who in the CIA is starting to get worried about it?’” (Idem.) (Hersh’s book has been reissued in paperback, by Tree Farm.)
48. “On October 29, 1965, Frank Wisner put a twenty-gauge shotgun to his head and pulled the trigger.” (Idem.)
49. In conclusion, the broadcast relates General Reinhard Gehlen’s presentation of Chinese military philosopher Sun-Tzu in his classic The Art of War. Describing the practice and strategy of psychological warfare, as well as what operations that were to be known as “covert action,” the passage presents what may well be the blueprint for what the Underground Reich may be planning to do in the United States. Consider the situation of the U.S. in recent years, in light of what is to follow. “‘There is no art higher than that of destroying the enemy’s resistance without a fight on the battlefield. The direct tactic of war is necessary only on the battlefield; but only the indirect tactic can lead to a real and lasting victory.’” (The Service: The Memoirs of General Reinhard Gehlen; World Publishing Company; copyright 1972 [HC];p.331.)
50. “‘Subvert anything of value in the enemy’s country. Implicate the emissaries of the major powers in criminal undertakings; undermine their position and destroy their reputation in other ways as well, and expose them to the public ridicule of their fellow citizens.’” (Idem.)
51. “‘Do not shun the aid of even the lowest and most despicable people. Disrupt the work of their government with every means you can.’”(Idem.)
52. “‘Spread disunity and dispute among the citizens of the enemy’s country. Turn the young against the old. Use every means to destroy their arms, their supplies, and the discipline of the enemy’s forces. Debase old traditions and accepted gods. Be generous with promises and rewards to purchase intelligence and accomplices. Send out your secret agents in all directions. Do not skimp with money or with promises, for they yield a high return.’” (Idem.)
53. 48. Echoing James Stewart Martin’s warning to the world, the program quotes the last paragraph of his 1950 book. “The moral of this is not that Germany is an inevitable menace, but that there are forces in our own country which can make Germany a menace. And, more importantly, they could create a menace of their own here at home, not through a deliberate plot to bring about a political catastrophe but as a calm judgment of ‘business necessity.’ The men who would do this are not Nazis, but businessmen; not criminals, but honorable men.” (All Honorable Men; p. 300.)
54. The possibility that the Underground Reich is deliberately working to bring about an ecopolitical catastrophe is not one to be too readily dismissed. Many of those who ultimately make the “calm judgement of business necessity” will do so (if they do), despite grave, sincere doubts about the decisions they have been forced to make. Kind of like chancellor Bruning. They won’t be Nazis, the people who manipulate them will be.
