German Intelligence, The National Socialist Underground and 9/11

Two inves­ti­ga­tions may well dove­tail. We’ve cov­ered the 9/11 attacks for years, begin­ning with analy­sis well before the events them­selves. We note, also, our recent posts about the intel­li­gence-linked Nation­al Social­ist Union neo-Nazi group in Ger­many. Ger­many Watch has pre­sent­ed a work­ing hypoth­e­sis that NSU’s mur­ders were cov­er­ing-up oper­a­tional ele­ments in the attacks.


“. . . Almost a Victory in the Third World War”

Wag­ing “war by oth­er means,” Ger­many has used its banks to do what Teu­ton­ic armies have accom­plished in the past. A for­mer Ital­ian cab­i­net mem­ber has accused Ger­many of delib­er­ate­ly pre­cip­i­tat­ing the euro-zone cri­sis. Telling­ly, Rena­to Brunet­ta termed what Angela Merkel did as “almost a vic­to­ry in the third world war.” It is vital to under­stand that the events over­tak­ing the world were delib­er­ate and pre­con­ceived. Ger­many is wag­ing World War III in the eco­nom­ic sphere, rather than the mil­i­tary one, in keep­ing with the prin­ci­ples of Pruss­ian mil­i­tary the­o­reti­cian Carl von Clause­witz.


Austerity, Up Close and Personal, Part 3: The Continuation of War by Other Means

As the Euro­pean deba­cle con­tin­ues, we are in a posi­tion to fur­ther eval­u­ate the depth and scope of the social destruc­tion stem­ming from it. A recent report notes that Europe faces sev­er­al “lost gen­er­a­tions” as impov­er­ished young peo­ple incur the dam­age result­ing from “aus­ter­i­ty.” Inter­est­ing­ly and sig­nif­i­cant­ly, large num­bers of des­per­ate, unem­ployed youth are seek­ing work in Ger­many. Ulti­mate­ly, this fig­ures to have the effect of increas­ing the social stress and pres­sure on the Ger­man work­force, who will face increased and intense com­pe­ti­tion for avail­able jobs. “Anti-immi­grant” sen­ti­ment has proved an effec­tive recruit­ing tool for the far right around the world. The neo-fas­cist Gold­en Dawn has begun active­ly recruit­ing among Greek expa­tri­ates who have moved to Ger­many in search of work.


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.


Who and/or What is Behind the Fetullah Gulen Organization?

Big in the US, Gulen orga­ni­za­tion accused of dirty tricks, CIA/Is­lamist/­Pan-Turk­ist affil­i­a­tions. Is a “neo-Ottoman Empire” the goal?


Turkish Foreign Minister Pursues Ottoman Irredentist, Islamist and Revisionist Policy Course

COMMENT: In past pro­grams, we’ve asked whether the new­ly invig­o­rat­ed pan-Turk­ist move­ment and Islamism might con­verge. Just such a devel­op­ment appears to be gain­ing momen­tum, with Turk­ish for­eign min­is­ter Ahmet Davu­to­glu hav­ing observed  the Mus­lim hol­i­day of Eid el-Fitr in Bosnia/Herzogovina. In addi­tion to the fact that this for­mer Yugosla­vian province was part of the […]


FTR #720 Update on the Pan-Turkist Movement

Seek­ing a return to Ottoman Empire glo­ry, Tur­kic peo­ples have been used by the Axis and then West­ern intel­li­gence to pro­mote fas­cism and desta­bi­lize the for­mer USSR, mod­ern Rus­sia and Chi­na. Pan-Turk­ist alliances with fas­cist ele­ments loom large today.


FTR #59 The Turkish “Stay Behind”

NATO oper­a­tion code-named “Stay Behind” had a Turk­ish com­po­nent uti­liz­ing the Nation­al Action Par­ty and its youth wing, the Gray Wolves.


FTR #43 The Pope Shooting: Stibam

Lis­ten now: One Seg­ment The Stibam arms-for-drugs ring was one of the most impor­tant and least pub­li­cized ele­ments of U.S. and NATO covert oper­a­tions in the 1970s and 1980s. This pro­gram dis­cuss­es con­nec­tions between this oper­a­tion’s drug busi­ness and the milieu of the fas­cist Grey Wolves, some of whose mem­bers shot the pope in May […]
