For months, we’ve highlighted the burgeoning scandal surrounding the “investigation” (read “cover-up”) of the neo-Nazi National Socialist Union. The venerable Der Spiegel informs us that a “raffle” awarding press seating to the upcoming trial of one of its members has managed to exclude many of the Federal Republic’s credible and best known publications.
Many listeners and readers may be inclined to dismiss the research of Edward R. Murrow protege Paul Manning on the postwar Bormann capital network. Evolved from the political economy of Nazi Germany and manifesting hierarchy deriving from that of the Third Reich, that organization controls the German corporate economy. A recent Bloomberg News story about the Quandt family details their relationship to Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels, setting forth information consistent with Manning’s research on corporate Germany.
Over the years, we’ve presented the profound, decades-long networking of both Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger with Third Reich alumni, many of them war criminals of the first order. Nixon helped to initiate and sustain the Nazi element of the GOP. Now we learn that Kissinger actively conspired with Third Reich veterans and German aristocrats to establish the groundwork for the overthrow of the German government of former chancellor Willy Brandt. Previously, Kissinger was recruited by Allen Dulles to help incorporate Nazis into the CIA’s fledgling paramilitary cadre to be used against the USSR. One of Kissinger’s co-conspirators was Hans Globke, author of the Nuremberg laws, which provided the basis for the Nazi extermination programs.
Yet another example of German intelligence shredding key files. In addition to shredding their files on the National Socialist Union, the Verfassungschutz has shredded its files on the Blood and Honor neo-Nazi group. The top official of that agency in Berlin was forced to resign because of this. That official–Claudia Schmid–was friendly with people from Landser, a German Nazi band.
The BND–the German intelligence service that evolved from Hitler’s Eastern Front intelligence organization–may well have played a role in the 9/11 attacks. 9/11 hijacker Mohamed Atta traveled under the auspices of the Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft and appears to have made contact with his German sponsors while studying German at the Goethe Institute of Cairo. The Goethe Institute is widely viewed as a front for German intelligence. Atta enrolled at the Goethe Institute after being encouraged by his father, who, according to Daniel Hopsicker, was seen in South Florida with Atta.
As was the case with Bill Clinton, no sooner does Obama win reelection than his administration is involved in an expanding sex scandal, which may well undermine his Middle Eastern policy, as well as handing political to the GOP. Replacing David Petraeus–temporarily and perhaps permanently–is Michael J. Morell, who briefed George W.Bush on intelligence matters. Morell was with Bush on the morning of 9/11.
German diplomats maintained a cozy relationship with the Black September terrorists responsible for the 1972 massacre of Israeli athletes at the Munich Summer Olympics. Expressing sympathy for the Palestinians, they never made a serious attempt at extraditing the terrorists behind the attack. A number of contradictions are evident in examining the record of the events, including a discrepancy in the number of terrorists actually involved in the incident, the German security forces’ lack of rifles at the airport (they were planning to snipe the terrorists at the airport), and the Germans’ refusal of cooperation by Israeli intelligence and security forces.
German intelligence and law enforcement had the Hamburg cell involved in the 9/11 attacks under surveillance by August of 1998 and did nothing. The officer in charge of law enforcement activities for Hamburg at the time has reportedly become head of the BND. Coupled with Atta’s German and Austrian associates in Florida, his sponsorship by the Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft and Germany’s suspicious manipulation of “Curveball,” serious questions must be asked about the role of Germany and its intelligence services with regard to 9/11 and the Iraq war.
German authorities had a warning three weeks before the Olympics massacre of 1972. With security headed by an officer of the BND, the final incarnation of the Gehlen “Org” and with neo-Nazis assisting the Palestinian terrorists, this comes as no surprise. The BND Olympics security chief has also been accused of staging provocations and providing an alibi for a Nazi leader in the 1980 Oktoberfest bombing.
German intelligence destroys file on Nazi terrorists the day before it was to be turned over to prosecutors. Previous reportage indicated that German domestic intelligence may have helped to finance the group through paid informants.
