FTR #835 Tangled Web: Overview of the AMIA Bombing Investigation

In this program, we detail some of the deep politics surrounding the AMIA attack, preparatory to a discussion of developments in the investigation of Argentine prosecutor Alberto Nisman’s death in FTR #836. The dizzying melange of individuals, institutions and events connected to the AMIA bombing involves: several people linked to former Argentinian president Carlos Menem; individuals linked to the Iran-Contra scandal; neo-Nazi elements in Argentina; investigations into fugitive Nazi war criminals; the resignations of two justice ministers involved in the AMIA investigation; the suspicious deaths of numerous individuals linked to one or another of the elements figuring in several related investigations; evidentiary tributaries linking the AMIA bombing to the Oklahoma City Bombing, the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland and the Achille Lauro hijacking in 1985.


FTR #825 Generalissimo Francisco Franco May NOT Be So Dead, After All

Fascist dictator Francisco Franco passed away decades ago, yet his political legacy lives on. Throughout Spain, memorialization of Franco and his soldiers continues. The perpetuation of that legacy is evident in the political resume of Mariano Rajoy, the son of a Franco judge. Rajoy’s Popular Party is a “kindler, gentler” edition of Franco’s Falange. In addition to jingoistic saber rattling at the British territory of Gibraltar, Rajoy is joining with Argentina to pressure the UK over the Falkalnd Islands. By dancing in tandem with Argentina, Rajoy is embracing the geo-political legacy of Hitler, who selected Spain as his first target for control because of its influence in Latin America–Argentina in particular.


FTR #810 A Prince Too Far

Pop conspiracy theory casts the Bilderberger group in a sensationalist, politically and historically illiterate “New World Order” context. In this broadcast, we examine the history of Prince Bernhard, the former SS officer and I.G. Farben spy who founded the group, against the background of the Battle of Arnhem (Operation Market Garden) in September of 1944. As head of the Dutch “resistance,” apparent double agent Bernhard sacrificed a resistance fighter named Christian Lindemans (code named “King Kong”), who took the blame for the deliberate betrayal of the Allied battle plan. Sabotage of the Arnhem operation has also been partly attributed to Peter Carrington (later Lord Carrington and former British Foreign Secretary during the run-up to the Falkalands War.) Attacked for his stunning lack of insight with regard to the Argentine fascist junta’s invasion of those islands, Carrington has never been properly vetted with regard to the betrayal of part of the British battle plan for the Falkalnds campaign. The program also examines the fascist activities and involvements of Bernhard’s heirs in the Royal Family of the Netherlands.


FTR #791 They May Not Know Art, but They Know What They Like

Exploring past and present, this program examines a detailed, scholarly working hypothesis by authors Simon Dunstan and Gerrard Williams concerning the possible escape of Adolf Hitler at the end of World War II. The authors posit that the key players in the realization of Aktion Feurland–the code-name for the operation facilitating Hitler’s escape–were Allen Dulles on the Allied side and Martin Bormann for the Third Reich. Centered on a quid pro quo arrangement, the authors hypothesize that Aktion Feurland involved the transfer of Nazi technology to the U.S. and the West (known as Project Paperclip) and the saving of priceless works of art from destruction. The ‘discovery” of a huge cache of Nazi-looted art in Munich in late 2013 is examined against the background of this alleged quid pro quo.


Aktion Feurland: Did Hitler Escape?

A recent book examines the very real possibility that Adolf Hitler may have escaped at the end of World War II–his “suicide” a carefully planned and executed ruse. Furthermore, the book highlights that gambit in the context of known collusion between the Third Reich and the Western Allies as the war drew to a close. The authors posit that the key players in the realization of Aktion Feurland–the code-name for the operation–were names well known to regular listeners and users of this website: Allen Dulles on the Allied side and Martin Bormann for the Third Reich. Centered on a quid pro quo arrangement, the authors hypothesize that Aktion Feurland involved the transfer of Nazi technology to the U.S. and the West (known as Project Paperclip) and the saving of priceless works of art from destruction, in return for the safe passage of Hitler, Bormann and other top Nazis.


More Collateralized “Death” Obligations

“Participo” alerts us to an article from The New York Post updating the mortality rate in the financial industry. These deaths are occurring as numerous investigations are underway into various kinds of malfeasance in the global financial sector, manipulation of the foreign exchange rate, in particular.


FTR #772 Body Count II: (Collateralized “Death” Obligations)

One of the surreal, almost hallucinatory financial instruments that were at the center of the 2008 financial collapse were CDO’s–collateralized debt obligations. As a number of legal investigations into mischief apparently committed by major financial institutions on a number of fronts have gained momentum, there has been a rash of suicides linked to the businesses under investigation. In addition, a Wall Street Journal reporter disappeared and an Argentine bank repository–supposedly fireproof–burned down. Are we looking at collateralized “death” obligations?


Is a “Deep Falange” at Work in Spain and Argentina?

Economically beset Spain is waxing aggressive toward British-governed Gibraltar, using that principality’s “fiscal irregularities” as justification because of the nation’s “EU obligations.” The Rajoy government is coordinating its efforts with Argentina. The cooperation is military, as well as political. Rajoy’s People’s Party evolved from Franco’s Falange. It does not appear to have altogether shed its fascist heritage.


Don’t Applaud for Him, Argentina: Cardinal Bergoglio (Pope Francis) and the Dirty War

Hailing from Argentina, the new Pope should not be viewed as a break with the Vatican’s past. Bergoglio appears to have turned liberal priests over to the junta, possibly assisting in their ‘interrogation!” He also helped to obscure the kidnapping of the children of victims of that murderous junta during its “Dirty War.” Key members of the junta belonged to the P-2 Lodge, which clandestinely ran the Vatican Bank.


Roberto Calvi Linked to Pablo Escobar

It is now relatively well known that the late Pablo Escobar and the associated Medellin Cartel were heavily involved with the Iran-Contra cocaine traffic of the 1980’s. Press accounts have now surfaced in Italy and the UK about Escobar having banked some of his proceeds with Roberto Calvi’s Banco Ambrosiano. Found murdered in London in late 1982, Calvi was the adviser to the IOR, having succeeded the late Michele Sindona in that regard. (Like Calvi, Sindona was a member of the Licio Gelli’s P-2 Lodge.) Disclosure of the Calvi/Escobar link suggests another link between the Iran-Contra affair and the Stibam arms for drugs ring that heavily overlapped the milieu of the P-2, Vatican Bank and the Banco Ambrosiano.
