While the media are predictably obsessing on the NSA/PRISM non-scandal, more important secrecy issues have emerged. It develops that some Sarasota-based Saudis who fled shortly after the 9/11 attacks were indeed connected to people implicated in the attacks, including individuals who were part of Mohamed Atta’s Huffman Aviation milieu.
Because of a serious illness, Mr. Emory hadn’t produced new programs in some time. Now, new For The Record programs are being produced. Soon, program production will be resumed on a weekly basis.
Like Count Dracula, Gerald Posner keeps coming back. Having led the media charges to discredit Warren Commission critics, critics of the official version of Martin Luther King’s assassination and Ladislas Farago’s research on Martin Bormann’s presence in Latin America, Posner is now defending Afghan president Karzai’s brother against credible charges that he has been on the CIA’s payroll, while participatring significantly in the Afghan heroin trade.
Recently, Aryan prison syndicates have been in the news. It appears that their number, sophistication, autonomy and lethal capabilities are far greater than most suspect. With the “lock-em-up and throw away the key” mentality twinning with the burgeoning for-profit prison enterprises, we may well see a storm breaking loose on the United States, as austerity pressures result in more of them being released without any significant rehabilitation.
The Bush family has been very, very close to the anti-Castro Cuban exile community for decades, including and especially the late Orlando Bosch, head of the CORU organization. Now, it emerges that a relative of Orlando Bosch heads the Biogenesis firm, under investigation for allegedly providing performance-enhancing drugs to professional athletes.
“Ex” CIA officer Graham E. Fuller gets around. The former father-in-law of the Boston Marathon bombers was a key advocate of the U.S. “turn to the Muslim Brotherhood,” as well as a defender of the Fetullah Gulen organization against charges of involvement with the CIA. Now, it emerges that he was pivotal in setting in motion the machinations that have become known as the Iran-Contra scandal.
After the death of Margaret Thatcher, Americans are being treated to hagiographies of her political ally Ronald Reagan. Reagan’s administration was a front for the Underground Reich, incorporating the GOP Nazi “ethnics” who had been imported into the US following World War II. Reagan, himself, had a long history of association with unsavory elements, including organized crime.
For years, we’ve covered the heroic, lonely research done by Daniel Hopsicker on the 9/11-related flight schools in Southern Florida. One of the principals in the intelligence-community-controlled drug trafficking milieu through which Mohamed Atta and associates infiltrated the United States was recently arrested in Houston for drug smuggling. Dekkers has entered a seal plea agreement, which will likely mute any public disclosure of the findings in the case.
Long able to escape legal retribution for his actions, Huffman Aviation operator Rudi Dekkers appears to have run out of luck. The Dutch/German pilot who ran the flight school through which 9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta and his German and Austrian associates infiltrated the United States has been arrested in Houston for drug trafficking. It remains to be seen what comes of this investigation, but the implications are potentially staggering.
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.
