FTR #845 Interview (#8) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

Pick­ing up where FTR #844 left off, this pro­gram exam­ines devel­op­ments in Indone­sia after the 1965 CIA coup that deposed Sukarno. An appar­ent par­tic­i­pant in an unsuc­cess­ful 1958 attempt against Sukarno was Lee Har­vey Oswald. Before tack­ling the bulk of the Indone­sia mate­r­i­al, Peter notes that the sup­posed “Com­mu­nist” Oswald actu­al­ly had con­nec­tions to Nazi ele­ments. After an encap­su­la­tion of the Japan­ese Gold­en Lily pro­gram that loot­ed much of Asia, the pro­gram sets forth some of the mys­ter­ies that unfold in con­nec­tion with the dis­po­si­tion of Sukarno’s “Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Fund.” Appar­ent­ly com­prised of both Gold­en Lily trea­sure and war loot trans­port­ed to the Asia by the Third Reich, the Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Fund has defied efforts by Sukarno fam­i­ly mem­bers and asso­ciates to obtain some of the wealth. Among the cast of char­ac­ters wind­ing through the mys­te­ri­ous cor­ri­dors of the Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Fund inves­tiga­tive maze are: a mys­te­ri­ous Dr. Poch, alleged in an Indone­sian best sell­er by Dr. Sus­ro Huso­do to have been Adolf Hitler; the pro­fes­sion­al frus­tra­tion and mys­te­ri­ous demise of Dr. Edi­son Damanik, who attempt­ed to obtain some of the Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Fund loot; arms deal­er Soeryo Goer­it­no, who suf­fered a dis­abling stroke or seizure when he attempt­ed to nav­i­gate the per­ilous waters of the Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Fund and its trib­u­taries.

FTR #842 Interview (#5) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

This next install­ment of our dis­cus­sions with Peter Lev­en­da about “The Hitler Lega­cy” begins with dis­cus­sion of indi­vid­u­als and orga­ni­za­tions that com­prised the post­war Nazi under­ground. Focused large­ly on the SS, these orga­ni­za­tions were vehi­cles for the per­pet­u­a­tion of the Nazi strug­gle against the Allies (includ­ing the U.S. and Britain) at the same time as they inter­faced with pow­er­ful ele­ments of West­ern intel­li­gence, who used them as Cold War­riors. Part of the Cold War strat­e­gy pur­sued by the U.S. was to resuci­tate (for a third time) the “glob­al jihadist” strat­e­gy devised by Max von Oppen­heim dur­ing the First World War. Seek­ing the “believ­ing” Mus­lims as proxy war­riors against the athe­is­tic com­mu­nists, pow­er­ful ele­ments of CIA and the State Depart­ment enlist­ed the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood in this strug­gle. “Weaponized reli­gion” was also used in Asia, where the Third Reich had already estab­lished a work­ing rela­tion­ship with the Dalai Lama and Tibetan Bud­dhists, with SS offi­cers of pri­ma­ry sig­nif­i­cance in the Nazis’ deal­ings with “His Holi­ness.” Key points of dis­cus­sion include: the career of Otto Ernst Remer; the remark­able career of Fran­cois Genoud; the Dalai Lama’s SS asso­ciate Bruno Beger’s atroc­i­ties war crimes; the Dalai Lama’s SS tutor–Heinrich Harrer–and his work for ele­ments of U.S. and West­ern intel­li­gence after the war.

FTR #841 Interview (#4) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

Resum­ing our analy­sis of “The Hitler Lega­cy,” our next inter­view with Peter Lev­en­da con­tin­ues dis­cus­sion of the reha­bil­i­ta­tion of “jihadis as proxy war­riors” by Ger­many in the run-up to, and dur­ing, the Sec­ond World War. Hav­ing assumed the posi­tion of Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Hus­sei­ni took advan­tage of resent­ment on the Arab street and mobi­lized it against the British and Jews. Begin­ning with pogroms dur­ing the 1920’s and 1930’s, Hus­seini’s activism blos­somed into full-fledged par­tic­i­pa­tion in Nazi mil­i­tary com­paigns, includ­ing recruit­ing Waf­fen SS units in Mus­lim ter­ri­to­ries. After dis­cussing some sim­i­lar­i­ties between Nazism and glob­al jihadist ide­ol­o­gy, Peter high­lights the Grand Mufti’s post war work with the PLO and oth­er Mus­lim polit­i­cal and mil­i­tary orga­ni­za­tions. Join­ing the Grand Mufti were numeer­ous SS men and Nazi tech­ni­cal experts, there to con­tin­ue their war against the Jews and to fight against Com­mu­nism on behalf of West­ern intel­li­gence agen­cies. In the Mid­dle East, as in oth­er coun­tries where they were recruit­ed as anti-Com­mu­nist cadre, the Third Reich alum­ni pur­sued a Nazi agen­da, spawn­ing new Nazi polit­i­cal and mil­i­tary for­ma­tions. Peter notes that they are not “neo”-Nazis, at all. West­ern intel­li­gence helped fos­ter post­war SS-assis­tance orga­ni­za­tions such as Die Spinne and ODESSA, shep­herd­ed to a con­sid­er­able extent by SS Colonel Otto Sko­rzeny.

FTR #819 Proxy War and the Earth Island Boogie (What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by “Underground Reich?,” Part 3)

Author Peter Lev­en­da has post­ed an arti­cle (excerpt­ed from his recent book) that encap­su­lates sig­nif­i­cant ele­ments of dis­cus­sion pre­sent­ed by Mr. Emory and fea­tured on this web­site. Not­ing Impe­r­i­al Ger­many’s use of Islam­ic proxy war­riors dur­ing the First World War and Nazi Ger­many’s incor­po­ra­tion of the same strat­a­gem, Lev­en­da notes that Nazi ele­ments have con­tin­ued to use Mus­lim proxy war­fare to advance the goals of what Mr. Emory calls the Under­ground Reich. Hav­ing incor­po­rat­ed many impor­tant ele­ments of Nazi Ger­many’s nation­al secu­ri­ty estab­lish­ment into its own after World War II, the Unit­ed States has co-opt­ed the tac­tic of proxy war. To its detri­ment, the U.S. has failed to grasp that the Under­ground Reich and its Islamist prox­ies have their own agen­das. Those agen­das fea­ture the defeat of the Unit­ed States as a cen­ter­piece of long-term strat­e­gy. Con­clud­ing with an exam­i­na­tion of recent Amer­i­can mil­i­tary involve­ment, the pro­gram notes that much of what we are doing actu­al­ly ben­fits Ger­many and occurs in areas for­mer­ly belong­ing to the Ottoman Empire.

Knock, Knock. Who’s there? The Clipper Chip and Four Horsemen.

Angela Merkel made an omi­nous announce­ment last week. She wants to move ahead with walling off the EU’s web traf­fic and begin a “mas­sive” counter-espi­onage cam­paign against the US and its Five Eyes part­ners. Brazil is mov­ing ahead with its plans to remake the inter­net, includ­ing local data stor­age require­ments and state-encrypt­ed web ser­vices sim­i­lar to Ger­many’s new anti-NSA state-backed email ser­vices. So domes­tic spy­ing could be on the rise, the inter­net itself is at risk, and state-encryp­tion ser­vices are now being offered as an anti-NSA panacea. Main­streamed unbreak­able encryp­tion is also com­ing with­out a debate. An old ene­my of pri­va­cy, the Clip­per Chip, has returned in a new form. And its own arch-neme­ses, the Four Horse­men of the Infopoca­lypse, are back too. And there are no obvi­ous ways to unin­vite these guests with­out a long talk

FTR #768 What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by “Underground Reich?” Part 1: The Naumann Coup Attempt of 1953

Wern­er Naumann–Joseph Goebbels’ cho­sen suc­ces­sor as head of the Nazi pro­pa­gan­da ministry–was arrest­ed plot­ting a coup with oth­er for­mer high-rank­ing Nazis in 1953. The inves­ti­ga­tion revealed that Nau­mann and his asso­ciates were act­ing at the direc­tion of a Nazi gov­ern­ment-in-exile based in Madrid. With the sup­port of Ger­man indus­try and finance, this Under­ground Reich oper­at­ed all over the world, exe­cut­ing con­spir­a­cies in for­eign coun­tries on behalf of Ger­man car­tels.

August, 2001: Israeli Intelligence Officers Travel to Washington to Warn of Impending “Large Scale” Bin Laden Terror Attacks

Israeli intel­li­gence warned the CIA of impend­ing “large scale” attacks by Bin Laden net­work. Two offi­cers were sent to Wash­ing­ton in August, 2001 to warn U.S. Is this part of the rea­son Truthers, neo-Nazis, Saud­is, Bushies and oth­ers blame the attacks on Mossad?
