BND Files on Postwar Gestapo and SS Agents Purged During Ernst Uhrlau’s Directorship

Chief of the Ham­burg police dur­ing a peri­od in which Ger­man intel­li­gence had mem­bers of the Ham­burg cell of 9/11 hijack­ers under sur­veil­lance, Ernst Uhrlau was appoint­ed spe­cial advis­er to the Chan­cel­lor on intel­li­gence mat­ters in 1998. He became head of the BND in 2005. Dur­ing Uhrlau’s tenure as BND direc­tor, files on BND offi­cers with SS and Gestapo back­grounds were shred­ded.


They May Not Know Art, But They Know What They Like

A recent dis­clo­sure that one Cor­nelius Gurlitt had many mil­lions of dol­lars worth of art stashed in what was described as his “dingy” Munich apart­ment has pro­duced a num­ber of inter­est­ing con­sid­er­a­tions. The art appears to have been a por­tion of Nazi plun­der accu­mu­lat­ed dur­ing World War II by Cor­nelius’ father Gurlitt. A Third Reich law still on the books may very well pre­vent the art from being restored to its right­ful own­ers.


FTR #762 The Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook, Part 8: U‑2 Brut? (The Destabilization of the Obama Administration)

Among the evi­dent pri­ma­ry goals of the intel­li­gence oper­a­tion under­tak­en by Edward Snow­den is the desta­bi­liza­tion of the Oba­ma admin­is­tra­tion. Inten­tion­al­ly dam­ag­ing Oba­ma’s attempts at improv­ing rela­tions with Rus­sia, Chi­na and Germany/EU, the “op” bears strong sim­i­lar­i­ty to the U‑2 inci­dent in May of 1960. That oper­a­tion appears to have been orches­trat­ed by domes­tic intel­li­gence ele­ments, where­as this appears to have been a for­eign “op,” prob­a­bly BND/Underground Reich.


FTR #761 The Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook, Part 7: Why the NSA Should Be Spying on Germany and Its Chancellor

This pro­gram high­lights German/Underground Reich con­nec­tions to both the 9/11 attacks and the Okla­homa City bomb­ing. Of par­tic­u­lar sig­nif­i­cance is Ernst Uhrlau: chief of Ham­burg police at the time Ger­man intel­li­gence had the 9/11 cell under sur­veil­lance, appoint­ed coor­di­na­tor of intel­li­gence for the Ger­man chan­cel­lor in 1998 and head of the BND in 2005. The son of Chan­cel­lor Kohl’s chief of staff may have mas­ter­mind­ed the Okla­homa City bomb­ing and BND may well have been manip­u­lat­ing Mohamed Atta.


The Heinrich Muller “Death” Deception

Not even the War­ren Com­mis­sion would buy this one! A dis­in­for­ma­tion piece is in cir­cu­la­tion claim­ing that Gestapo chief Hein­rich Mueller was alleged­ly iden­ti­fied as hav­ing been killed in Berlin dur­ing the last week of the war. A Los Ange­les Times piece from 2001 notes archival infor­ma­tion that Mueller was cap­tured by Amer­i­can troops at the end of the war. We have dealt at length with Mueller’s post­war work as secu­ri­ty direc­tor for the remark­able and dead­ly Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work.


Memo to Merkel: Get a Grip!

It should come as no sur­prise that the NSA would tar­get Ger­many as a “hot spot” for elec­tron­ic sur­veil­lance. We call atten­tion to Ernst Uhrlau, chief of police in Ham­burg dur­ing the time Ger­man intel­li­gence had the Ham­burg cell of 9/11 hijack­ers under sur­veil­lance, lat­er spe­cial advis­er to Chan­cel­lor Hel­mut Kohl on intel­li­gence mat­ters (the son of whose chief of staff may have mas­ter­mind­ed the Okla­homa City bomb­ing), and even­tu­al­ly head of the BND!

I Told You So: Update on the “Muslim Brotherhood Spring,” The “Hacktober Surprise” and the Destabilization of Lee Harvey Obama

As fore­cast in the For The Record series deal­ing with Wik­iLeaks and mor­ph­ing into the “Mus­lim Broth­er­hood Spring,” the GOP is tar­ring Barack Oba­ma with the “soft on ter­ror­ism” brush–casting him as the sec­ond com­ing of Jim­my Carter. Attack­ing the Oba­ma admin­is­tra­tion for not hav­ing pre­vent­ed the lethal attack on the Libyan embassy, the GOP is explic­it­ly com­par­ing Oba­ma’s actions with Carter’s behav­ior dur­ing the Iran­ian hostage cri­sis. The avail­able evi­dence sug­gests that the “Mus­lim Broth­er­hood Spring” is a covert operation–the out­growth of a George Bush State Depart­ment reassess­ment and rap­proche­ment with the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood, as well as an approach made to the Egypt­ian April 6 move­ment dur­ing the clos­ing days of Dubya’s sec­ond term.


German Intelligence and the 9/11 Conspirators

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.


Nazi Ghosts of the OUN/B Haunt Soccer in the Ukraine

Ukraine mov­ing to com­mem­o­rate WWII mas­sacres of Pol­ish civil­ians by Ukrain­ian fas­cists from OUN/B. Poland is protest­ing this his­tor­i­cal revi­sion­ism. OUN/B head Stepa­han Ban­dera and Roman Stukhevych (who lead the exter­mi­na­tion of the Lvov Ghet­to dur­ing World War II) were named heroes of Ukraine..
