Introduction: In this program, we review some topics covered in previous interviews with John Loftus, as well as some investigations that are new to the audience. In his book The Secret War Against the Jews, published in 1994, John discussed the NSA’s vacuum cleaning of phone calls and electronic communications, a topic that was the focal point of much of the so-called disclosures “released” by Edward Snowden. We reviewed that information, as well as the fact that Germany and the other NATO countries do exactly the same thing, with fewer safeguards of civil liberties.

Next, we highlighted the Arab Spring. Confirming the line of inquiry painstakingly developed in FTR #’s 733739, John underscored that, as he put it, “The Arab Spring is us.” He also affirmed that the binary intelligence system dating to the end of World War II appeared to be the cause of the pro-Muslim Brotherhood bias in the corridors of power in Washington.

Reviewing another of his investigations that we have detailed in the past, John recapitulated his collection of metadata and the sting that he and a colleague arranged to precipitate the Operation Green Quest raids of 3/20/2002. Investigating Sami al-Arian, John helped to uncover the terror funding apparatus that had done much to finance Al Qaeda, Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad. That investigation was subverted in large measure because of the profound connections of the individuals and institutions raided to the highest ranks of the GOP and the Bush administration.

Touching on the subject of the Boston Marathon bombing in the spring of 2013, John notes that Graham Fuller had founded a front organization headed by the uncle of the bombers, “Uncle Ruslan”.

Relating a fascinating story that we have not covered before, John recounts some information from his book Valhalla’s Wake, dovetailing that investigation with disclosures that surfaced during the trial of James “Whitey” Bulger, a Boston-based mobster and longtime FBI informant recently convicted on numerous charges.

Dealing with the murder of a John McIntyre, Jr.–a young American who was smuggling for the IRA and turned federal informant–Valhalla’s Wake was supplemented by the disclosure that Whitey Bulger killed young McIntyre, after the latter’s status as an informant became known to Bulger. The cast of characters involved in the conspiracy embraced people known to John from his days as an investigator for the Office of Special Investigations.

The program concludes with discussion of the overlapping phenomena of international fascism and globalization.

Program Highlights Include: Analysis of the OUN/B (a Ukrainian fascist organization used by the U.S. during the Cold War); Grover Norquist’s lobbying on behalf of Islamic terrorists; Karl Rove’s complicity with some of the terrorists Norquist represented; the role of Freedom House in the Arab Spring; the role of Frank Wisner Jr. advocating on behalf of Hosni Mubarak during the Arab Spring; the Webb-Pomerene Act and the post-World War I capitalization of Germany; the role of Allen Dulles and Jack Philby in elevating the Wahhabi sect into power in Saudi Arabia; the World Commerce Corporation and its role in re-capitalizing the German “economic miracle” after World War II.

1. In his book The Secret War Against the Jews, published in 1994, John discussed the NSA’s vacuum cleaning of phone calls and electronic communications, a topic that was the focal point of much of the so-called disclosures “released” by Edward Snowden. We have discussed that in, among other broadcasts, FTR #541 and FTR #706.

2. We also reviewed the fact that Germany and all of the other NATO countries do the same thing, with fewer safeguards on civil liberties! Germany is actually using the “disclosures” of Snowden to ramp up its own spying.

3. Next, we highlighted the Arab Spring. Confirming the line of inquiry painstakingly developed in FTR #’s 733739, John underscored that, as he put it, “The Arab Spring is us.” Mr. Emory noted that the Muslim Brotherhood did, indeed, come to power in Egypt as he had predicted in the programs cited above.

4. Noting the “binary” CIA and State Department that evolved at the end of World War II, John affirmed that State Department elements were working against the pro-democracy forces in Egypt. Specifically, he mentioned Frank Wisner, Jr. (son of Frank Wisner, head of the OPC), who went to Egypt and urged Hosni Mubarak to stay in power.

5. Reviewing another of his investigations that we have detailed in the past, John recapitulated his collection of metadata and the sting that he and a colleague arranged to precipitate the Operation Green Quest raids of 3/20/2002. Investigating Sami al-Arian, John helped to uncover the terror funding apparatus that had done much to finance Al Qaeda, Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad. That investigation was subverted in large measure because of the profound connections of the individuals and institutions raided to the highest ranks of the GOP and the Bush administration. We reviewed the roles of Grover Norquist and Karl Rove in elevating Islamist and Al Qaeda-related elements in this country.

6. Touching on the subject of the Boston Marathon bombing in the spring of 2013, John notes that Graham Fuller had founded a front organization headed by the uncle of the bombers, “Uncle Ruslan”.

7. Relating a fascinating story that we have not covered before, John recounts some information from his book Valhalla’s Wake, dovetailing that investigation with disclosures that surfaced during the trial of James “Whitey” Bulger, a Boston-based mobster and longtime FBI informant recently convicted on numerous charges.

8. Dealing with the murder of a John McIntyre, Jr.–a young American who was smuggling for the IRA and turned federal informant–Valhalla’s Wake was supplemented by the disclosure that Whitey Bulger killed young McIntyre, after the latter’s status as an informant became known to Bulger.

EXCERPT:. . . . [former Bulger associate Kevin] Weeks said John McIntyre was killed after Bulger heard he may have spoken with authorities about a failed bid to send guns to the Irish Republican Army. He said McIntyre was chained to a chair and interrogated by Bulger, who held a machine gun.

After McIntyre admitted he was cooperating with law enforcement, Bugler wrapped a rope around his neck and tried to strangle McIntyre, Weeks said. The rope was too thick and the pressure caused McIntyre to vomit, he said.

“Jim says to him, ‘Do you want one in the head?’ and he said, ‘Yes, please,'” Weeks said.

Bulger then shot him in the head, Weeks said. When that didn’t kill him, Bulger shot him several more times, Weeks said. . . .

8. Detailing the story contained in Valhalla’s Wake, John highlights the activities of John McIntyre, Sr. and his son, John McIntyre, Jr., the man killed by Whitey Bulger. McIntyre, Sr. worked with General Reinhard Gehlen, of whom we have spoken at great length over the years. McIntyre, Jr. had been busted for drugs while in the U.S. Army.

9. A former Army attorney–Dick Sullivan–covered up McIntyre, Jr.’s drug bust and recruited him to work for the IRA. Eventually, McIntyre, Jr. got disgusted with what was going on and turned federal informant.

10. In one of the most fascinating details of the story, John relates that Dick Sullivan obscured the Sichereitsdienst/Gestapo background of Mikola Lebed of the OUN/B. This permitted him to be legally employed by CIA. Sullivan then used Lebed to penetrate U.S. intelligence on behalf of the IRA!

11. The program concludes with discussion of the overlapping phenomena of international fascism and globalization. John reviewed and highlighted both the Webb-Pomerene Act and the World Commerce Corporation.

12. John’s current efforts include writing another book, which will be self-published and writing for Ami Magazine, an online Jewish periodical.
