Martin Bormann’s [Alleged] Relative Cheryl Bormann Defending a Guantanamo Terror Suspect

Cheryl Bor­mann, alleged rel­a­tive of Mar­tin Bor­mann (pho­to cred­it, debbieschlussel.com)

COMMENT: A recent alle­ga­tion, by con­ser­v­a­tive blog­ger Deb­bie Schlus­sel epit­o­mizes the rea­son we oppose ide­ol­o­gized jour­nal­ism and polit­i­cal sci­ence. Dis­cussing the defense coun­sel for accused 9/11 ter­ror­ist Walid bin Attash, a Yemeni nation­al accused of research­ing flight sim­u­la­tors to facil­i­tate the 9/11/attacks, Ms. Schlus­sel reveals that his defense coun­sel is one Cheryl Bor­mann, who is alleged to be a rel­a­tive of Reich­sleit­er Mar­tin Bor­mann! 

The lat­ter was, of course, the pow­er behind the throne for Adolf Hitler and the direc­tor of the post­war Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work, the eco­nom­ic com­po­nent of a Third Reich gone under­ground.

It is impos­si­ble in the con­text of this post to encap­su­late the Bor­mann net­work and its sig­nif­i­cance. Suf­fice it to say that it is impos­si­ble to ful­ly appre­ci­ate the mate­r­i­al on this web­site with­out an under­stand­ing of the Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion, which can be obtained through a read­ing of Mar­tin  Bor­mann: Nazi in Exile, by Paul Man­ning.

Lis­ten­ers inter­est­ed in pur­su­ing infor­ma­tion about Third Reich alum­ni and the 9/11 attacks should exam­ine FTR #456, among oth­er pro­grams.

NB: We use the  term “alleged” in con­nec­tion with Ms. Bor­man­n’s her­itage, not to cast asper­sions on Ms. Schus­sel’s research out of hand, but rather to main­tain aware­ness of one of the Bor­mann net­work’s pri­ma­ry gambits–the seed­ing of delib­er­ate dis­in­for­ma­tion in a sto­ry to dis­cred­it reportage on the group’s activ­i­ties.

In FTR #134, we exam­ined the Bor­mann group’s pur­pose­ful dis­cred­it­ing of Ladis­las Fara­go, who wrote of Bor­man­n’s post­war activ­i­ties. Bor­mann secu­ri­ty chief Hein­rich Mueller’s dis­cred­it­ing of Fara­go was sup­ple­ment­ed by Ger­ald Pos­ner, a lead­ing dis­in­for­ma­tion spe­cial­ist with regard to this coun­try’s polit­i­cal assas­si­na­tions.

In Ladis­las Farago’s After­math, the author cites Haj Amin el-Hus­sei­ni, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and a gen­er­al in the Waf­fen SS, as hav­ing aid­ed Bor­man­n’s escape.  The polit­i­cal and his­tor­i­cal milieu of the Grand Mufti is close­ly linked to the al-Taqwa milieu, deeply involved with the events of 9/11.

From this van­tage point, Ms. Schus­sel’s alle­ga­tion can be nei­ther con­firmed nor dis­proved. This is the first we’ve heard of this claim.

Schus­sel may be in pos­ses­sion of a jour­nal­is­tic gem, and she may alter­nate­ly have fall­en vic­tim to Bor­mann group “bad­jack­et­ting.” We might note that Ms. Bor­mann may have indeed have made the claim of rela­tion­ship to the Reich­sleit­er, in order to express Nazi sym­pa­thies and puff up her own sit­u­a­tion.

“EXCLUSIVE: Git­mo Ter­ror­ist Lawyer Cheryl Bor­mann Bragged about Nazi Rel­a­tive Mar­tin Bor­mann” by Deb­bie Schlus­sel; debbieschlussel.com; 5/9/2012.

EXCERPT: DebbieSchlussel.com has learned that Git­mo ter­ror­ist lawyer, Cheryl T. Bor­mann, bragged to col­leagues that she is relat­ed to the late top Nazi offi­cial, Mar­tin Bor­mann. Bor­mann was Adolf Hitler’s pri­vate sec­re­tary, head of the Nazi Par­ty Chan­cellery, and a Reich Leader. He named his first-born son after Hitler, who was his son’s god­fa­ther. (Check out the many pics of Bor­mann with his bud­dy Adolf.) And, sources say, that Cheryl Bor­mann wasn’t exact­ly embar­rassed by and didn’t con­demn the behav­ior of her promi­nent Nazi rel­a­tive. In fact, the sources say they were shocked when Bor­mann rather indif­fer­ent­ly not­ed she was relat­ed to him and seemed to be proud of the asso­ci­a­tion. She told acquain­tances that her uncle, who lived on an Illi­nois farm, was ques­tioned by U.S. intel­li­gence offi­cials dur­ing World War II about whether or not he had con­tact with Mar­tin Bor­mann. When he told them he did not, they left him alone.

On Mon­day, I told you about Bor­mann, the lawyer for Walid bin Attash, on tri­al at Guan­tanamo Bay. As I told you, Bor­mann wore a hijab, the Islam­ic veil, as well as an abaya, the Islam­ic cape for women. She also lec­tured oth­er women in the court­room that they, too, should wear such Islam­ic dress out of respect for the Islam­ic ter­ror­ists, includ­ing her client, who are respon­si­ble for the mass mur­der of 3,000 Amer­i­cans on 9/11. . . .

Mar­tin Bor­mann

COMMENT: For those who might find Ms. Schlus­sel’s research dif­fi­cult to swal­low, check out a small ele­ment of Paul Man­ning’s research on the Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion, excerpt­ed from the FBI’s file on Cheryl Bor­man­n’s appar­ent rel­a­tive Mar­tin.

EXCERPT: . . . The file revealed that he [Mar­tin Bor­mann] had been bank­ing under his own name from his office in Ger­many in Deutsche Bank of Buenos Aires since 1941; that he held one joint account with the Argen­tin­ian dic­ta­tor Juan Per­on, and on August 4, 5 and 14, 1967, had writ­ten checks on demand accounts in first Nation­al City Bank (Over­seas Divi­sion) of New York, The Chase Man­hat­tan Bank, and Man­u­fac­tur­ers Hanover Trust Co., all cleared through Deutsche Bank of Buenos Aires. . . .

Mar­tin Bor­mann: Nazi in Exile by Paul Man­ning; p. 205.

COMMENT: In our many vis­its with Daniel Hop­sick­er, we have exam­ined the many Ger­mans who worked with Mohamed Atta and Rudi Deck­ers in the Huff­man Avi­a­tion milieu in Venice Flori­da.

On the last page of Man­ning’s text, he cites an unnamed CIA pilot who “made the run to the Bor­mann ranch in Latin Amer­i­ca.” Might that “run” have gone through Venice Flori­da, a hub of covert oper­a­tions for decades? Might Wolf­gang Bohringer and asso­ciates have been what comes up from the oth­er end of that run?

EXCERPT: . . . A for­mer CIA con­tract pilot, who once flew the run into Paraguay and Argenti­na to the Bor­mann ranch described the estate as remote, ‘worth your life unless you entered their air space with the right iden­ti­fi­ca­tion codes. . . .

    This is some­what off the main top­ic of the post—which is a tru­ly galling turn of events—but I won­der if you might expand on your thoughts regard­ing the brief com­ment with which you pref­aced this post, “epit­o­mizes the rea­son we oppose ide­ol­o­gized jour­nal­ism and polit­i­cal sci­ence”. The pit­falls of ide­ol­o­gized jour­nal­ism are clear enough (for good or ill) but ques­tion­ing the province of ‘polit­i­cal sci­ence’
    (one of those none exact kinds), now that’s a bridge too far. I’m kid­ding of course, but I am gen­uine­ly inter­est­ed in your thoughts on the sub­ject. Emp­ty and sym­bol­ic devi­sions of the ‘The Left’ and ‘The Right’ are obvi­ous­ly destruc­tive. How­ev­er, isn’t there a real dif­fer­ence between the con­ser­v­a­tive and lib­er­al mind? What is polit­i­cal sci­ence if not the ongo­ing effort to explain this appar­ent dichoto­my fac­ing homo-politi­cus?

  3. @Dave: In Schlus­sel’s arti­cle, she links to a web page with pic­tures of Hilter:


    If you look at the 4th pic­ture, the leg­end says that the image fea­tures, among many, a cer­tain Oberst Nico­laus von Below. Could it be could a rel­a­tive of our dear “friend” Andreas von Bulow? The last name is not spelled the same but still. Maybe it’s the web­site that has it spelled wrong.

  5. we read­ers should not over­look get­ting the infor­ma­tion you cov­er out to peo­ple who don’t have com­put­ers. just about every town has a local news­pa­per. full the let­ter with facts the read­er could check, but above all, do not be bor­ing and get to the point at once. call talk shows and be armed with facts peo­ple could check on. and don’t for­get about writ­ing let­ters to peo­ple who just might be inter­est­ed if they real­ly knew what was going on. if every­one just did what they could, it would add up to a whole lot.

  6. @David–

    This is a sound sug­ges­tion. Do note my caveats about Schus­sel’s sto­ry and the dis­in­for­ma­tion method­ol­o­gy suc­cess­ful­ly employed by the Bor­mann net­work.

    Karl Rove uses the same method­ol­o­gy, and that, too, should be remem­bered here.

    Rove and Norquist are, as a mat­ter of pub­lic record, deeply involved with the tar­gets of the Oper­a­tion Green Quest inves­ti­ga­tion.

  7. @Dave: Also, Dave, giv­en that Oper­a­tion Green Quest’s 10th anniver­sary was just 2 months ago next Mon­day, do you think you might be able to do a series of updates sometime.....or at least when you can get back on the radio?

    @Dave E.: Yep. This is an inter­est­ing sto­ry, though, so I’m hop­ing you might be able to track down anoth­er source for this infor­ma­tion. =)
