Stephan Bandera

Lee Harvey Oswald

Introduction: Most of the program details the assassination of OUN/B leader Stephan Bandera. Blamed on the KGB, the killing was–in all likelihood–performed by BND (German foreign intelligence and the successor to the Reinhard Gehlen “org”) or other Underground Reich-connected elements, possibly elements of CIA.

The broad­cast cen­ters on dis­in­for­ma­tion (dis­sem­i­nated by W.A.C.C.FL.-related ele­ments) point­ing to Lee Har­vey Oswald as a KGB-trained assassin.

Attempt­ing to pin the assas­si­na­tion on the Sovi­ets and/or Cubans, these ele­ments spurred many lib­er­als to endorse the “Oswald as lone-nut” hypoth­e­sis. They were afraid that the assas­si­na­tion could lead to nuclear war, if the per­cep­tion gained traction that Oswald was a com­mu­nist. A cen­tral ele­ment in this dis­in­for­ma­tion ploy was an attempt to con­nect the JFK assas­si­na­tion to the death of Stephan Ban­dera, allegedly per­formed by an KGB assas­sin named Bog­dan Stashyn­sky.

Murdered on the same day that Lee Harvey Oswald “defected” to the Soviet Union, Bandera’s killing was linked to Oswald’s alleged killing of JFK by elements associated with the W.A.C.C.F.L. (the World Anti-Communist Congress for Freedom and Liberation–the forerunner of the World Anti-Communist League.)

W.A.C.C.F.L. ele­ments dis­sem­i­nated the lie that Oswald was trained at the same facil­ity as Stashyn­sky, and that the JFK hit was part of a Soviet pro­gram of assas­si­na­tion of West­ern polit­i­cal lead­ers. It should be noted that W.A.C.C.F.L.-related ele­ments also fig­ured promi­nently in the “han­dling” of Oswald in New Orleans, Dal­las and (pos­si­bly) the Soviet Union.

Those W.A.C.C.F.L. elements were closely associated with the OUN/B and the Anti-Bolshevik Bloc of Nations, a consortium of Eastern European fascist groups inextricably linked with the Gehlen organization, the BND, the CIA and the Underground Reich.

Thomas J. Dodd

The disinformation that Oswald was a KGB assassin was inserted into a Senate Subcommittee report by Sen. Thomas Dodd, with assistance from elements of CIA.

A mem­ber of the U.S. pros­e­cu­to­r­ial staff at Nurem­berg., this for­mer FBI agent (Dodd) was close to the Amer­i­can Secu­rity Coun­cil (ASC), a domes­tic fas­cist group.  With its roots in the Hitler-Goebbels Anti-­Com­intern, the Amer­i­can Secu­rity Coun­cil was a key Amer­i­can link to the for­mer World Anti-Communist League or WACL. Cre­ated by for­mer FBI agents dis­grun­tled at the demise of Sen­a­tor Joseph McCarthy’s “inves­ti­ga­tions,” the Amer­i­can Secu­rity Coun­cil coa­lesced around the files of Harry Jung’s Amer­i­can Vig­i­lance Intel­li­gence Fed­er­a­tion. Vir­u­lently anti-Semitic, Jung’s orga­ni­za­tion was part of the Anti-Comintern prior to World War II.

Count­ing among its ranks some of the most promi­nent names on the far right, the orga­ni­za­tion kept track of peo­ple it con­sid­ered “sub­ver­sive,” shar­ing polit­i­cal intel­li­gence with prospec­tive employ­ers (par­tic­u­larly defense con­trac­tors). The ASC hated Kennedy and it is not, there­fore, alto­gether sur­pris­ing that Dodd helped to dis­sem­i­nate the dis­in­for­ma­tion that Lee Har­vey Oswald had been trained in assas­si­na­tion by the KGB. With CIA assis­tance, Dodd inserted this Bandera-linked dis­in­for­ma­tion into a Sen­ate Sub­com­mit­tee report. This dis­in­for­ma­tion, with roots in the same WACL milieu as the ASC, led lib­er­als to cover-up the assas­si­na­tion out of fear that pub­lic per­cep­tion that a com­mu­nist killed the Pres­i­dent would lead to a Third World War.

It is also interesting and very possibly relevant that the disinformation about Oswald/Stashynsky and the KGB was first called to the attention of Julien Sourwine by OUN/B operative Lev Dobriansky, who later served as Reagan’s ambassador to the Bahamas, while his daughter Paula served on Reagan’s National Security Council. Paula Dobriansky later served as an Assistant Secretary of State under George W. Bush and headed the Tibet desk for a time.

Dodd’s role in this affair is all the more inter­est­ing when one con­sid­ers the pos­si­bil­ity that Oswald may have ordered his weapons while work­ing for Dodd’s Sub­com­mit­tee. Inves­ti­gat­ing the mail-order firearms busi­ness, the Dodd com­mit­tee focused on the two firms from which Oswald allegedly pur­chased his weapons. Both Seaport Traders and Klein’s sporting goods, from which Oswald allegedly ordered his weapons, were under investigation by the Dodd Subcommittee. Oswald was appar­ently extra­or­di­nar­ily inter­ested in mail-order guns, a strange way for a prospec­tive assas­sin to acquire weaponry. In 1963 in Texas, he could have pur­chased his guns over the counter with no trace of the transaction.

Program Highlights Include:

  • Evidence that the Stashynsky cover story was fabricated.
  • Review of the Crusade For Freedom–a covert operation that spawned the Nazi wing of the GOP.
  • The role of the OUN/B in the CFF and in the Reagan administration.
  • The role of key CFF participants in the JFK assassination.

Paula Dobriansky later served as an Assistant Secretary of State under George W. Bush and headed the Tibet desk for a time.

Deep Politics and the Death of JFK by Peter Dale Scott; University of California Press; p. 216.

. . . . [General Charles] Wiloughby, in particular, was also part of the leading defense-industrial lobby the American Security Council, along with politically active army reserve officers like Lev Dobriansky, who first brought the issue of Bogdan Stashynsky and the alleged murder training school to the attention of Sourwine and the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee. . . . 

. . . . Senator Dodd was on the ASC payroll when he generated the Senate subcommittee report on Stashynsky’s supposed murder training school. . . . 

3a. As indicated above, Dobriansky served as Reagan’s ambassador to the Bahamas, while his daughter Paula served on Reagan’s National Security Council, ultimately becoming an Assistant Secretary of State during the George W. Bush admistrations.

We note, in passing, that the Bahamas were an epicenter of operations for the Bank al-Taqwa, a major vehicle for funding the Afghan mujahadeen and, later, their offshoot Al-Qaeda. (Offshore entities used to fund the Afghan mujahadin and Al-Qaeda were set up by Baudoin Dunand, a friend of, protege of, and attorney for Francois Genoud.

Paul Dobriansky headed the Tibet desk at the State Department, working with the CIA and SS-connected Dalai Lama. Paula Dobriansky has been very critical of Obama’s policy toward Ukraine.

“Undersecretary for Democracy and Global Affairs”; U.S. Department of State: Archive.

The Office of the Under Secretary for Democracy and Global Affairs, headed by Dr. Paula J. Dobriansky, coordinates U.S. foreign relations on a variety of global issues, including democracy, human rights, and labor; environment, oceans, health and science; population, refugees, and migration; women’s issues; and trafficking in persons and avian and pandemic influenza.

Since her appointment in 2001, Under Secretary Dobriansky has also served concurrently as the Special Coordinator for Tibetan IssuesIn this capacity, she is the U.S. government’s point person on Tibet policy matters, including: support for dialogue between the Chinese and the Dalai Lama or his representatives; promotion of human rights in Tibet; and efforts to preserve Tibet’s unique cultural, religious and linguistic identity.

3b. More about the relationship between Lev Dobriansky, the OUN/B’s American umbrella organization (the U.C.C.A.) and the Reagan administration:

. . . . Many surviving OUN-B members fled to Western Europe and the United States – occasionally with CIA help – where they quietly forged political alliances with right-wing elements. “You have to understand, we are an underground organization. We have spent years quietly penetrating positions of influence,” one member told journalist Russ Bellant, who documented the group’s resurgence in the United States in his 1988 book, “Old Nazis, New Right, and the Republican Party.”In Washington, the OUN-B reconstituted under the banner of the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA), an umbrella organization comprised of “complete OUN-B fronts,” according to Bellant. By the mid-1980’s, the Reagan administration was honeycombed with UCCA members, with the group’s chairman Lev Dobriansky, serving as ambassador to the Bahamas, and his daughter, Paula, sitting on the National Security Council. Reagan personally welcomed Stetsko, the Banderist leader who oversaw the massacre of 7000 Jews in Lviv, into the White House in 1983.

“Your struggle is our struggle,” Reagan told the former Nazi collaborator. “Your dream is our dream.” . . . .

4a. We review analysis of the Crusade For Freedom–the covert operation that brought the OUN/B operatives into the country and also supported their guerilla warfare in Ukraine, conducted up until the early 1950’s. (We covered this in AFA #1 and FTR #777, as well as FTR #875.) Conceived by Allen Dulles, overseen by Richard Nixon, publicly represented by Ronald Reagan and realized in considerable measure by William Casey, the CFF ultimately evolved into a Nazi wing of the GOP.

The Secret War Against the Jews; by John Loftus and Mark Aarons; Copyright 1994 by Mark Aarons; St. Martin’s Press; [HC] ISBN 0-312-11057-X; pp. 122-123.

. . . . Frustration over Truman’s 1948 election victory over Dewey (which they blamed on the “Jewish vote”) impelled Dulles and his protégé Richard Nixon to work toward the realization of the fascist freedom fighter presence in the Republican Party’s ethnic outreach organization. As a young congressman, Nixon had been Allen Dulles’s confidant. They both blamed Governor Dewey’s razor-thin loss to Truman in the 1948 presidential election on the Jewish vote. When he became Eisenhower’s vice president in 1952, Nixon was determined to build his own ethnic base. . . .

. . . . Vice President Nixon’s secret political war of Nazis against Jews in American politics was never investigated at the time. The foreign language-speaking Croatians and other Fascist émigré groups had a ready-made network for contacting and mobilizing the Eastern European ethnic bloc. There is a very high correlation between CIA domestic subsidies to Fascist ‘freedom fighters’ during the 1950’s and the leadership of the Republican Party’s ethnic campaign groups. The motive for the under-the-table financing was clear: Nixon used Nazis to offset the Jewish vote for the Democrats. . . .

. . . . In 1952, Nixon had formed an Ethnic Division within the Republican National Committee. Displaced fascists, hoping to be returned to power by an Eisenhower-Nixon ‘liberation’ policy signed on with the committee. In 1953, when Republicans were in office, the immigration laws were changed to admit Nazis, even members of the SS. They flooded into the country. Nixon himself oversaw the new immigration program. As Vice President, he even received Eastern European Fascists in the White House. . .

4b. More about the composition of the cast of the CFF:

The Secret War Against the Jews; by John Loftus and Mark Aarons; Copyright 1994 by Mark Aarons; St. Martin’s Press; [HC] ISBN 0-312-11057-X; p. 605.

. . . . As a young movie actor in the early 1950s, Reagan was employed as the public spokesperson for an OPC front named the ‘Crusade for Freedom.’ Reagan may not have known it, but 99 percent for the Crusade’s funds came from clandestine accounts, which were then laundered through the Crusade to various organizations such as Radio Liberty, which employed Dulles’s Fascists. Bill Casey, who later became CIA director under Ronald Reagan, also worked in Germany after World War II on Dulles’ Nazi ‘freedom fighters’ program. When he returned to New York, Casey headed up another OPC front, the International Rescue Committee, which sponsored the immigration of these Fascists to the United States. Casey’s committee replaced the International Red Cross as the sponsor for Dulles’s recruits. Confidential interviews, former members, OPC; former members, British foreign and Commonwealth Office. . . .

5. The broadcast concludes with analysis of the profound overlap of the key figures in the Crusade for Freedom and the assassination of President Kennedy. Allen Dulles was a key Warren Commission member, widely viewed as a key orchestrator of the cover-up. Richard Nixon was in Dallas Texas on 11/22/1963 and lied about it to two FBI agents in February of 1964. (The profound links between the Kennedy assassination and Watergate is discussed in, among other programs, The Guns of November, Part 3, FTR #253 and Miscelaneous Archive Show M59.)

Ronald Reagan helped frustrate Jim Garrison’s investigation by refusing to extradite Edgar Eugene Bradley to New Orleans as requested and subsequently served on the Rockefeller Commission investigating possible CIA participation in the assassination of JFK. (Predictably, the Rockefeller Commission found none, which is not credible.)

6. George H.W. Bush was circulating between Dallas and Houston, claiming that he can’t remember where he was and what he was doing on the day of the President’s assassination. (Discussion of Bush and the JFK assassination is detailed in FTR #712.)

While serving as chairman of the Republican National Committee, the elder George Bush shepherded the Nazi émigré community into position as a permanent branch of the Republican Party.

The Secret War Against the Jews; by John Loftus and Mark Aarons; Copyright 1994 by Mark Aarons; St. Martin’s Press; [HC] ISBN 0-312-11057-X; pp. 369-370.

. . . . It was Bush who fulfilled Nixon’s promise to make the ‘ethnic emigres’ a permanent part of Republican politics. In 1972, Nixon’s State Department spokesman confirmed to his Australian counterpart that the ethnic groups were very useful to get out the vote in several key states. Bush’s tenure as head of the Republican National Committee exactly coincided with Laszlo Pasztor’s 1972 drive to transform the Heritage Groups Council into the party’s official ethnic arm. The groups Pasztor chose as Bush’s campaign allies were the émigré Fascists whom Dulles had brought to the United States. . . .

  1. I recently finished reading “The Hitler Legacy” and, although I have a few unresolved questions, it was quite good. I just bought “The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America’s Secret Government” by David Talbot. I just started reading it — and it’s a page-turner. Dave, or has any other listener read “The Devil’s Chessboard” yet, and what did you think? Thanks!
