FTR #364 What Do You Want To Be When You Blow Up?

MP3 One Seg­ment

With recent Al Qae­da attacks against the Pen­ta­gon, World Trade Cen­ter, and the U.S.S. Cole, as well as the epi­dem­ic of sui­cide bombers attack­ing Israel, sui­cide ter­ror­ists have dom­i­nat­ed the news. (Hitler also had plans to destroy New York with sui­cide aer­i­al attacks.)

This broad­cast high­lights some of the his­tor­i­cal and method­olog­i­cal ori­gins of sui­cide weapon­ry.

1. The cen­tral focus of this pro­gram is the col­lab­o­ra­tion of SS colonel and ODESSA king­pin Otto Sko­rzeny and his World War II ally and post­war fas­cist col­lab­o­ra­tor Prince Jus­to Vale­rio Borgh­ese. Both men worked togeth­er dur­ing the war on sui­cide weapons for Nazi Ger­many and fas­cist Italy. Lat­er, both men were prin­ci­pal ele­ments in what Dan­ish jour­nal­ist Hen­drik Kruger called the Inter­na­tion­al Fascista-an inter­na­tion­al fas­cist alliance unit­ing fas­cists in Italy, Spain, Por­tu­gal, France and Latin Amer­i­ca with Third Reich alum­ni and ele­ments of U.S. intel­li­gence. (The Great Hero­in Coup: Drugs, Intel­li­gence and Inter­na­tion­al Fas­cism; by Hen­drik Kruger; Copy­right 1980 [SC]; South End Press [Boston].)

2. Much of the broad­cast is culled from a book by a for­mer British mil­i­tary ana­lyst that sets forth the Skorzeny/Borghese col­lab­o­ra­tion in the devel­op­ment of sui­cide weapon­ry for use against the allies. (Sui­cide Squads; by Richard O’Neill; Copy­right 1981 [SC] Sala­man­der Books Ltd.)

3. Borgh­ese was a lumi­nary in the Ital­ian navy who devel­oped midget sub­marines for sui­cide attacks to be car­ried out in New York City against allied ship­ping. (Idem.)

4. These subs were to be car­ried into U.S. ter­ri­to­r­i­al waters by larg­er Ital­ian sub­marines, after which they would be dis­patched with their sui­cide oper­a­tors to attack ship­ping in the har­bor. (Idem.)

5. Sko­rzeny and Borgh­ese col­lab­o­rat­ed in the devel­op­ment of sev­er­al sui­cide naval weapons. One of these was the Neger manned tor­pe­do. (Idem.)

6. The fas­cist lumi­nar­ies also col­lab­o­rat­ed on the Lintzen explo­sive motor­boats, to be guid­ed into allied ship­ping. (Idem.) The sim­i­lar­i­ty between these craft and the weapon used against the U.S.S. Cole by Al Qae­da should not be over­looked.

7. Sko­rzeny also worked on a manned ver­sion of the V‑1 buzz bomb, to be pilot­ed into the tar­gets by sui­cide pilots. (Idem.)

8. In light of the lat­er sig­nif­i­cance of Sko­rzeny and Borgh­ese in the Inter­na­tion­al Fascista, their sem­i­nal role in the devel­op­ment of sui­cide weapons and the promi­nence of sui­cide ter­ror­ism in the late 20th and ear­ly 21st cen­tu­ry is worth not­ing. Sko­rzeny and Borgh­ese became promi­nent in what the afore­men­tioned Hen­drik Kruger called the Inter­na­tion­al Fascista (Fas­cist Inter­na­tion­al.) (The Great Hero­in Coup: Drugs, Intel­li­gence and Inter­na­tion­al Fas­cism; by Hen­drik Kruger.)

9. The Fas­cist Inter­na­tion­al enjoyed the sup­port of promi­nent ele­ments of Span­ish and Ital­ian intel­li­gence, as well as ele­ments of U.S. intel­li­gence asso­ci­at­ed with the for­mer World Anti-Com­mu­nist League. (Idem.)

10. It should be not­ed that the Inter­na­tion­al Fascista was piv­otal­ly involved in Oper­a­tion Con­dor, an inter­na­tion­al assas­si­na­tion con­sor­tium that enjoyed the sup­port of ele­ments of U.S. intel­li­gence. (Idem.)

11. A key ele­ment of the Inter­na­tion­al Fascista was CORU, an anti-Cas­tro Cuban orga­ni­za­tion head­ed by Orlan­do Bosch. (Idem.)

12. Anoth­er key ele­ment of Inter­na­tion­al Fascista was the Pal­adin mer­ce­nary group, found­ed by Sko­rzeny and financed by Sko­rzeny’s weapons empire and Moham­mar Khadafy. (Idem.)

13. Pal­ad­in’s oper­at­ing man­ag­er was for­mer Goebbels sub­or­di­nate Ger­hard Hart­mut Von Schu­bert. (Idem.)

14. Khadafy’s secret ser­vice was put togeth­er by an SS team put togeth­er by for­mer Gestapo chief Hein­rich Muller.

15. Many of these fas­cist and Islamist ele­ments col­lab­o­rat­ed with U.S. intel­li­gence dur­ing the Cold War. That they would have ulti­mate­ly turned on the Unit­ed States with a vengeance should not come as a great sur­prise. 9/11 was a dev­as­tat­ing exam­ple of “blow­back.”
