FTR #1209 This pro­gram was record­ed in one, 60-minute seg­ment [5].

Intro­duc­tion: Con­tin­u­ing our series on the regime of Chi­ang Kai-shek–all but beat­i­fied dur­ing the Cold War–we begin by draw­ing still more on a mag­nif­i­cent book–The Soong Dynasty [6] by Ster­ling Sea­grave.

Although sad­ly out of print, the book is still avail­able through used book ser­vices, and we emphat­i­cal­ly encour­age lis­ten­ers to take advan­tage of those and obtain it. Sev­er­al lis­ten­ers have said that they were able to obtain the book because it is still in print!

I hope so! PLEASE buy it, read it, and tell oth­ers about it, either through con­ven­tion­al means and/or through social media. (Mr. Emory gets no mon­ey from said pur­chas­es of the book.) It is appar­ent­ly avail­able from Ama­zon on Kin­dle.

We also draw on anoth­er, alto­geth­er remark­able work by Peg­gy and Ster­ling Sea­grave–Gold War­riors [7].

As we approach the close of this series, we “dol­ly out” and present aspects of how U.S. pol­i­cy in Asia dur­ing the Cold War grew direct­ly out of the “mis­sion­ary posi­tion” that Amer­i­ca took toward China–a posi­tion that led direct­ly to war in Korea and Viet­nam.

Intro­duc­ing the expan­sion of Amer­i­can expe­ri­ence with Chi­ang and his Kuom­intang fas­cists into U.S. Cold War pol­i­cy in Asia, we present Ster­ling Seagrave’s rumi­na­tion about Stan­ley Horn­beck, a State Depart­ment flack who became: “. . . . the doyen of State’s Far East­ern Divi­sion. . . .”

Horn­beck “ . . . . had only the most abbre­vi­at­ed and stilt­ed knowl­edge of Chi­na, and had been out of touch per­son­al­ly for many years. . . . He with­held cables from the Sec­re­tary of State that were crit­i­cal of Chi­ang, and once stat­ed that ‘the Unit­ed States Far East­ern pol­i­cy is like a train run­ning on a rail­road track.  It has been clear­ly laid out and where it is going is plain to all.’ It was in fact bound for Saigon in 1975, with whis­tle stops along the way at Peking, Que­moy, Mat­su, and the Yalu Riv­er. . . .”

Next, we recap an ele­ment of dis­cus­sion from FTR#1208 [8].

Net­work­ing with Isa Yusuf Alptekin at the Ban­dung (Indone­sia) con­fer­ence was Ruzi (or “Ruzy”) Nazar, an Uzbek nation­al who fought in var­i­ous Third Reich mil­i­tary for­ma­tions, includ­ing the SS Dirlewanger Brigade. After the war, Nazar was a CIA oper­a­tive net­work­ing with the Nation­al Action Par­ty (or Nation­al Move­ment Par­ty) of Alparslan Turkes.

Nazar rep­re­sent­ed [9] the Anti-Bol­she­vik Bloc of Nations at the 1984 WACL con­fer­ence [10] in Dal­las.

(We have dis­cussed the de-sta­bi­liza­tion of Xin­jiang Province in numer­ous pro­grams, includ­ing: FTR#‘s 1143 [11], 1144 [12], 1145 [13]1154 [14], 1178, 1179, [15] 1180. [15])

Adri­an [14] Zenz [16]–whose pro­fes­sion­al milieu is the Cap­tive Nations Com­mit­tee [17]and its sub­sidiary ele­ment the Vic­tims of Com­mu­nism Memo­r­i­al Foundation–has also been mint­ed as an expert on Tibet.

Next, we detail infor­ma­tion on the Dalai Lama:

Impor­tant back­ground infor­ma­tion on this item of the pro­gram is con­tained in FTR#‘s 547 [18], 548 [19] among oth­er pro­grams. (Mr. Emory mis-iden­ti­fied the num­bers of the pro­grams in the audio file for this broad­cast.)

Key facts about the Dalai Lama [18] were set forth by for­mer key aides of his.

In addi­tion to a belief in demons and a reliance on mag­ic rit­u­als (some of them sex­u­al in nature), the Dalai Lama’s brand of Tantric Bud­dhism espous­es a mil­i­tant, war­like and intol­er­ant nature toward oth­er reli­gions. As not­ed by the Tri­mondis, there are some sim­i­lar­i­ties between this per­vert­ed man­i­fes­ta­tion of Bud­dhism and the Wahhabi/Muslim Brotherhood’s per­vert­ed man­i­fes­ta­tion of Islam.

The Dalai Lama’s brand of Tantric Bud­dhism con­tains what might be a viewed as “Bud­dhist jihadism.” In addi­tion, the Tri­mondis take note of the sig­nif­i­cance of the Kalachakra Tantra cer­e­mo­ny per­formed by the Dalai Lama, a sub­ject to which we will return lat­er in the broad­cast. In addi­tion, Tantric Buddhism’s apoc­a­lyp­tic vision of a cli­mac­tic war of the reli­gions (“Sham­bala War”) bears some sim­i­lar­i­ties to the fun­da­men­tal­ist Chris­t­ian vision of Armaged­don.

Key ele­ments of dis­cus­sion and analy­sis include:

Next, the Tri­mondis note the influ­ence of Tantric Bud­dhism (and oth­er East­ern reli­gions) on the phi­los­o­phy of SS chief Hein­rich Himm­ler. They also note that well-known Ger­man Bud­dhist teach­ers Dur­ck­heim and Her­rigel have been doc­tri­naire Nazis. In addi­tion, the Tri­mondis note that the Dalai Lama has main­tained close con­nec­tions with oth­er Nazis and fas­cists over the years.

In addi­tion to SS vet­er­ans Hein­rich Har­rer and war crim­i­nal Bruno Beger, the Dalai Lama net­worked with “the French SS- col­lab­o­ra­tor, con­vinced anti-Semi­te, rec­og­nized Ori­en­tal­ist and Kalachakra Tantra expert Jean Mar­ques-Riv­iere (in his absence con­vict­ed and giv­en the death sen­tence for turn­ing Jews over to the Gestapo in France).” The Aum Shin­rikyo guru Shoko Asa­hara was also a friend of the Dalai Lama and was influ­enced by the ide­ol­o­gy of the Kalachakra Tantra. (For more about the Aum Shin­rikyo cult, includ­ing the influ­ence of Hitler on the Dalai Lama’s friend Shoko Asa­hara, see FTRs 35 [20] and 69 [21].)

Next, we review analy­sis of pow­er broker–Kodama Yoshio who helped insti­tu­tion­al­ize the col­lab­o­ra­tion between Chi­nese KMT, Kore­an and Japan­ese fas­cists. Note­wor­thy, as well is Kodama’s close rela­tion­ship between with the CIA and the Japan­ese Impe­r­i­al fam­i­ly in the postwar/Cold War peri­od.

Kodama Yoshio epit­o­mizes and embod­ies the oper­a­tional and ide­o­log­i­cal struc­ture of the Asian Peo­ple’s Anti-Com­mu­nist League, the Asian branch of what was to become the World Anti-Com­mu­nist League [22].

Key Points of Dis­cus­sion and Analy­sis Include: Kodama’s accu­mu­lat­ed for­tune of 13 bil­lion dol­lars in World War II dol­lars; Kodama’s close rela­tion­ship with Japan­ese Emper­or Hiro­hi­to, who allowed him to stash some of his wealth in the Impe­r­i­al Palace; Kodama’s dom­i­nant posi­tion in the nar­cotics traf­fic, dur­ing and after World War II; Kodama’s dona­tion of 100 mil­lion dol­lars to the CIA (equiv­a­lent to 1 bil­lion dol­lars in today’s cur­ren­cy); Kodama’s con­tin­ued dom­i­nance in the glob­al nar­cotics traf­fic, dur­ing the time he was on the CIA’s pay­roll; Kodama’s cozy rela­tion­ship with Prince Higashiku­ni, Emper­or Hiro­hi­to’s uncle, who facil­i­tat­ed Kodama’s oper­a­tions, includ­ing his close rela­tion­ship with the U.S.

Next, we review the bril­liant Dou­glas Valen­tine’s syn­op­sis of the role of Kuom­intang drug traf­fick­ing in the insti­tu­tion­al­iza­tion of Amer­i­can gov­ern­ment drug-traf­fick­ing.

U.S. Ambas­sador to Thai­land (and for­mer OSS chief) William “Wild Bill” Dono­van worked with OSS and CIA oper­a­tive Paul Hel­li­well to dis­trib­ute the laun­dered prof­its of Agency-backed drug oper­a­tions to mem­bers of Con­gress, with Dono­van gift­ing Repub­li­cans and Hel­li­well sup­port­ing Democ­rats.

” . . . .Thai dic­ta­tor Phao Sriyanon, a drug traf­fick­er who was then alleged to be the rich­est man in the world; ‘hired lawyer Paul Hel­li­well . . . as a lob­by­ist in addi­tion to [for­mer OSS chief William] Dono­van [who in 1953–1955 was U.S. Ambas­sador to Thai­land]. Dono­van and Hel­li­well divid­ed the Con­gress between them, with Dono­van assum­ing respon­si­bil­i­ty for the Repub­li­cans and Hel­li­well tak­ing the Democ­rats.’ . . . .”

1. Intro­duc­ing the expan­sion of Amer­i­can expe­ri­ence with Chi­ang and his Kuom­intang fas­cists into U.S. Cold War pol­i­cy in Asia, we present Ster­ling Seagrave’s rumi­na­tion about Stan­ley Horn­beck, a State Depart­ment flack who became: “. . . . the doyen of State’s Far East­ern Divi­sion. . . .”

Horn­beck “ . . . . had only the most abbre­vi­at­ed and stilt­ed knowl­edge of Chi­na, and had been out of touch per­son­al­ly for many years. . . . He with­held cables from the Sec­re­tary of State that were crit­i­cal of Chi­ang, and once stat­ed that ‘the Unit­ed States Far East­ern pol­i­cy is like a train run­ning on a rail­road track.  It has been clear­ly laid out and where it is going is plain to all.’ It was in fact bound for Saigon in 1975, with whis­tle stops along the way at Peking, Que­moy, Mat­su, and the Yalu Riv­er. . . .”

. . . . He did not have the right to speak at the con­fer­ence, but he was able to orga­nize a press con­fer­ence for the jour­nal­ists who had come from the four cor­ners of the world to cov­er the event, includ­ing around thir­ty from the USSR. Ruzi told the press office of his plans, and they informed  jour­nal­ists and del­e­gates of the press con­fer­ence to be giv­en by Ruzi Nazar, observ­er del­e­gate from Turkestan and a for­mer offi­cer in the Turkestan Legion. [The Turkestan Legion was a Third Reich mil­i­tary formation–D.E.] Mean­while, the chair­man of the Ban­dung branch of the Masyu­mi Par­ty told Ruzi just half an hour before the press con­fer­ee was due to begin that a North Cau­casian guest called Sey­it Shamil had arrived from Turkey. He had been unable to take part in the con­fer­ence, as he had not been invit­ed. Ruzi told the chair­man that he should bring this guest straight in and seat him beside him­self at the press con­fer­ence. Sey­it Shamil was the grand­son of Sheikh Shamil, the nation­al hero of the North Cau­ca­sus, who had fought for its inde­pen­dence against the armies of the tsars. Sey­it Shamil had want­ed to come to Ban­dung along with the Uyghur leader Isa Yusuf Alptekin, the for­mer prime min­is­ter of the Repub­lic of East Turkestan, which had been bro­ken up by Chi­nese armies in 1949. But Shamil was the only one to obtain a visa, as the Chi­nese gov­ern­ment had put pres­sure on the Indone­sian gov­ern­ment to stop Alptekin being giv­en one. They had gone togeth­er from Istan­bul to Karachi, where Alptekin had again applied for a visa and been turned down. The Uyghur leader decid­ed to wait in Pak­istan for Shamil to return. . . .

An inter­view with Vic­tor and Vic­to­ria Tri­mon­di by James C. Stephens; 9/11/2003 [24]

TRIMONDI: The XTV Dalai Lama, the God-King of Tibet is the high­est rep­re­sen­ta­tive of Tantric Bud­dhism, estab­lished in Tibet in the 8th cen­tu­ry, A.D. Tantrism, the last stage in the his­to­ry of Bud­dhism (since the 5th cen­tu­ry A.D. in India) is based on rit­u­al and mag­ic for­mu­las. Not unlike oth­er reli­gions it also has ‘skele­tons in its clos­et’ which it care­ful­ly con­ceals as a guest in the West­ern world. Tibetan Tantrism is a belief in spir­its and demons, secret sex­u­al prac­tices, occultism, mind con­trol, and an obses­sion with pow­er.

In con­trary to every demo­c­ra­t­ic cus­tom, the present Dalai Lama con­sults with the Nechung Ora­cle, a monk who is pos­sessed by a Mon­go­lian War God, on all-impor­tant state deci­sions. What pri­mar­i­ly con­cerns us about the inter­re­li­gious cer­e­mo­ny in the Nation­al Cathe­dral in Wash­ing­ton, D.C. is the lev­el of naivety in the West. For the past 25 years, the Dalai Lama has qui­et­ly per­formed the Kalachakra Tantra (‘The Wheel of Time’), the high­est of all ancient Tantric ini­ti­a­tions for tens of thou­sands of spir­i­tu­al novices in the West; intro­duc­ing Tantric ide­ol­o­gy, secret sex­u­al prac­tices, and mag­ic rit­u­als inte­grat­ed into the con­text of his reli­gious-polit­i­cal world view.

Crit­i­cal voic­es have been raised, while he con­tin­ues to secret­ly trans­mit the Kalachakra’s prophet­ic vision of the estab­lish­ment of a uni­ver­sal Bud­dhoc­ra­cy (Shamb­ha­la) in which spir­i­tu­al and world­ly pow­er are unit­ed in one per­son, the ‘world emperor’(Chakravartin), where­in oth­er reli­gions will no longer exist. . . . . In the Kalachakra Tantra is proph­e­sized the estab­lish­ment of a Bud­dho­crat­ic Empire, a clash of civ­i­liza­tions will arise as the mil­i­tary forces of Bud­dhism wage war against the armies of non-Bud­dhist reli­gions.

Mur­der­ous super-weapons pos­sessed by the Bud­dhist Shamb­ha­la Army are described at length and in enthu­si­as­tic detail in the Kalachakra Tantra Text (Shri Kalachakra I. 128 ‑142) and employed against ‘ene­mies of the Dhar­ma (Bud­dha’s teach­ings).’ Over the last five years in the Ger­man speak­ing coun­tries, these shad­ow-aspects of Lamaism have lead to a vast, steady and increas­ing stream of crit­i­cism in the media. Dur­ing the Kalachakra-Ini­ti­a­tion of the Dalai Lama last year in Aus­tria there were very con­tro­ver­sial debates on TV and radio sta­tions and press media. The inter­na­tion­al­ly well known news­pa­per Der Stan­dard pub­lished an arti­cle enti­tled ‘A War­rior Rit­u­al with the Dalai Lama: The Kalachakra’.

The Ger­man Week­ly of Chris­t­ian intel­lec­tu­als ‘Der Rheinis­che Merkur enti­tled an arti­cle: ‘What is hid­den behind the Kalachakra Tantra? Supreme­ly fero­cious war­riors!’ STEPHENS: Who are these non-Bud­dhist ene­mies spo­ken of in the Kalachakra Teach­ings? I’ve seen arti­cles in the Bud­dhist mag­a­zines the Shamb­ha­la Sun and Tri­cy­cle about Lamas dress­ing up in mil­i­tary uni­forms. I thought Bud­dhism was a peace­ful faith? TRIMONDI: The secret text of the Kalachakra explic­it­ly names the ‘lead­ers’ of Judaism, Chris­tian­i­ty and Islam as the oppo­nents of Bud­dhism: ‘Adam, Enoch, Abra­ham, Moses, Jesus, Mani, Muham­mad and the Mah­di’ describ­ing them as ‘the fam­i­ly of the demon­ic snakes’ (Shri Kalachakra I. 154). The final, Armaged­don-like bat­tle (Shamb­ha­la war) ends in the total vic­to­ry of the Bud­dhists. The offi­cial Kalachakra-Inter­preter Alexan­der Berzin open­ly com­pares the prin­ci­ples of the Islam­ic ‘Jihad’ with that of the Shamb­ha­la war. As in the Islam­ic mar­tyr-ide­ol­o­gy Shamb­ha­la-War­riors, who will be killed in the last bat­tle have earned pas­sage into the [Bud­dhist] par­adise.

The mil­i­tary sce­nar­ios in some Bud­dhist Cen­ters such as the Shamb­ha­la train­ing camps of the deceased Lama Chö­gyum Trung­pa [25], have until now only a sym­bol­ic mean­ing, and yet they are inter­pret­ed as a spir­i­tu­al prepa­ra­tion of the proph­e­sized great Shamb­ha­la War. In the imag­i­na­tion of some Lamas all par­tic­i­pants in a Kalachakra ini­ti­a­tion have the ques­tion­able priv­i­lege of being reborn as ‘Shamb­ha­la War­riors’ in order to be able to par­tic­i­pate in the com­ing apoc­a­lyp­tic bat­tle either as infantry or offi­cers, depen­dent on rank. High lamas of par­tic­u­lar lin­eages have already been assigned to com­mand­ing posi­tions in the future. . . .

3b. Next, the Tri­mondis note the influ­ence of Tantric Bud­dhism (and oth­er East­ern reli­gions) on the phi­los­o­phy of SS chief Hein­rich Himm­ler. They also note that well-known Ger­man Bud­dhist teach­ers Dur­ck­heim and Her­rigel have been doc­tri­naire Nazis. In addi­tion, the Tri­mondis note that the Dalai Lama has main­tained close con­nec­tions with oth­er Nazis and fas­cists over the years. In addi­tion to SS vet­er­ans Hein­rich Har­rer and war crim­i­nal Bruno Beger, the Dalai Lama net­worked with “the French SS- col­lab­o­ra­tor, con­vinced anti-Semi­te, rec­og­nized Ori­en­tal­ist and Kalachakra Tantra expert Jean Mar­ques-Riv­iere (in his absence con­vict­ed and giv­en the death sen­tence for turn­ing Jews over to the Gestapo in France).” The Aum Shin­rikyo guru Shoko Asa­hara was also a friend of the Dalai Lama and was influ­enced by the ide­ol­o­gy of the Kalachakra Tantra. (For more about the Aum Shin­rikyo cult, includ­ing the influ­ence of Hitler on the Dalai Lama’s friend Shoko Asa­hara, see FTRs 35 [20] and 69 [21].)

An inter­view with Vic­tor and Vic­to­ria Tri­mon­di by James C. Stephens; 9/11/2003 [24]

“TRIMONDI: In our his­tor­i­cal essay Hitler — Bud­dha — Krish­na — an Unholy Alliance from the Third Reich to Today, we show that the war­like and racist ideas of Hein­rich Himm­ler of the SS and of oth­er well known Neo-fas­cists have been fun­da­men­tal­ly inspired by ele­ments of dif­fer­ent Asian reli­gions, such as Vedism, Bud­dhism, Lamaism and that promi­nent Ger­man Zen Teach­ers-Dur­ck­heim & Her­rigel have been con­vinced Nazis.

It’s real­ly shock­ing, in the ‘SS-Ahnenerbe’, which was the aca­d­e­m­ic brain trust of the SS, that its Chief Hein­rich Himm­ler, was open­ly engaged in ongo­ing dis­cus­sions with the most dis­tin­guished Ger­man Ori­en­tal­ists of his time in the con­struc­tion of a new Indo- Ari­an Nazi-Reli­gion. After WW II, this dis­cus­sion was con­tin­ued by promi­nent neo- fas­cist ide­o­logues. Both of our books have stim­u­lat­ed a great dis­cus­sion about the ide­o­log­i­cal sources of reli­gious fun­da­men­tal­ism and about the clash of civ­i­liza­tions. . . .

TRIMONDI: It is a fact that the Shamb­ha­la War Ide­ol­o­gy of the Kalachakra-Tantra has led to aggres­sive behav­ior, mega­lo­ma­ni­a­cal visions and con­spir­a­cy the­o­ries both in the his­to­ry of the Asia as well as in that of reli­gious fas­cism and neo-fas­cism. Already in the SS-Ahnenerbe, where Hein­rich Himm­ler’s Nazi-Reli­gion was born, there was an inter­est in the con­tents of the Kalachakra-Tantra.

The influ­en­tial fas­cist and cul­tur­al philoso­pher Julius Evola saw in the myth­ic world of Shamb­ha­la an eso­teric cen­ter of a sacred war­rior race. This vision is today still firm­ly anchored in the reli­gious ideas of the inter­na­tion­al far-right move­ment. That alone makes it nec­es­sary for the Dalai Lama to dis­tance him­self clear­ly from the war-mon­ger­ing Shamb­ha­la Myth.

Instead of this he has cul­ti­vat­ed friend­ly con­tacts with peo­ple such as the ex-SS men Bruno Beger (con­vict­ed as help­ing to mur­der more than 86 Jews) and Hein­rich Har­rer, author of Sev­en Years in Tibet (a chron­i­cle of his expe­ri­ence with the Dalai Lama over sev­en years pri­or to his exile to India). The Home­page of the Gov­ern­ment of Tibet in Exile [26] shows the XIV Dalai Lama between Bruno Beger on his right and Hein­rich Har­rer on his left. Beger has been a mem­ber of the famous SS-Tibet Expe­di­tion orga­nized by the SS in 1938/1939 whose pri­ma­ry goal was to find traces of an ancient, lost indo-Ari­an reli­gion in the Himalayas.

Some occult lead­ers in the SS were con­vinced that Tibetan Lamas are the key hold­ers of these Indo- Ari­an Mys­ter­ies. Beger is high­ly respect­ed by the Gov­ern­ment of Tibet in Exile as a chief wit­ness for the polit­i­cal inde­pen­dence of the coun­try in the 30’s and 40’s of the last cen­tu­ry. [Empha­sis added.] Near­ly unknown until now are the con­tacts of the Dalai Lama with the French SS- col­lab­o­ra­tor, con­vinced anti-Semi­te, rec­og­nized Ori­en­tal­ist and Kalachakra Tantra expert Jean Mar­ques-Riv­iere (in his absence con­vict­ed and giv­en the death sen­tence for turn­ing Jews over to the Gestapo in France).

The founder of an eso­teric Hitler move­ment, the ex-Chilean diplo­mat Miguel Ser­ra­no (pro­mot­er of an extreme­ly racist SS-mys­ti­cism, which is based on Tantric prac­tices and on the idea of the Shamb­ha­la War­riors) met the Dalai Lama four times. Well known became his rela­tion­ship with the Japan­ese ter­ror­ist, Shoko Asa­hara, whom he described, even after the Tokyo sarin gas attacks, as his ‘friend, albeit an imper­fect one’. Only lat­er he did dis­tance him­self from the Guru. Asa­hara’s Dooms­day Phi­los­o­phy was main­ly influ­enced by the Shamb­ha­la Ide­ol­o­gy and by Tibetan Tantrism.”

4. Next, we review analy­sis of pow­er broker–Kodama Yoshio who helped insti­tu­tion­al­ize the col­lab­o­ra­tion between Chi­nese KMT, Kore­an and Japan­ese fas­cists. Note­wor­thy, as well is Kodama’s close rela­tion­ship between with the CIA and the Japan­ese Impe­r­i­al fam­i­ly in the postwar/Cold War peri­od.

Kodama Yoshio epit­o­mizes and embod­ies the oper­a­tional and ide­o­log­i­cal struc­ture of the Asian Peo­ple’s Anti-Com­mu­nist League, the Asian branch of what was to become the World Anti-Com­mu­nist League [22].

Key Points of Dis­cus­sion and Analy­sis Include: Kodama’s accu­mu­lat­ed for­tune of 13 bil­lion dol­lars in World War II dol­lars; Kodama’s close rela­tion­ship with Japan­ese Emper­or Hiro­hi­to, who allowed him to stash some of his wealth in the Impe­r­i­al Palace; Kodama’s dom­i­nant posi­tion in the nar­cotics traf­fic, dur­ing and after World War II; Kodama’s dona­tion of 100 mil­lion dol­lars to the CIA (equiv­a­lent to 1 bil­lion dol­lars in today’s cur­ren­cy); Kodama’s con­tin­ued dom­i­nance in the glob­al nar­cotics traf­fic, dur­ing the time he was on the CIA’s pay­roll; Kodama’s cozy rela­tion­ship with Prince Higashiku­ni, Emper­or Hiro­hi­to’s uncle, who facil­i­tat­ed Kodama’s oper­a­tions, includ­ing his close rela­tion­ship with the U.S.

. . . . Ser­vice’s per­se­cu­tion was fair warn­ing that any­one link­ing the Nation­al­ist Chi­nese to drug smug­gling would, at a min­i­mum, be brand­ed a Com­mu­nist sym­pa­thiz­er and his rep­u­ta­tion ruined. That is how the US drug oper­a­tion is still pro­tect­ed today, although secu­ri­ty for the oper­a­tion has improved and whistle­blow­ers are smeared in oth­er ways.

After World War Two, the busi­ness of man­ag­ing the gov­ern­men­t’s involve­ment in the illic­it nar­cotics trade was giv­en to the CIA, because it could covert­ly con­duct sup­port oper­a­tions for, among oth­ers, the Nation­al­ist Chi­nese in Tai­wan. The CIA also relo­cat­ed and sup­plied one of Chi­ang’s armies to Bur­ma. This KMT army sup­port­ed itself through the opi­um trade and the CIA flew the opi­um to places where it was con­vert­ed to hero­in and sold to the Mafia. The oth­er bureaucracies—the mil­i­tary and the Depart­ments of State, Jus­tice and Treasury—provided pro­tec­tion along with the Chi­na Lob­by con­gress­men and sen­a­tors who con­trolled the lit­tle infor­ma­tion that was made pub­lic. . . .

5b. U.S. Ambas­sador to Thai­land (and for­mer OSS chief) William “Wild Bill” Dono­van worked with OSS and CIA oper­a­tive Paul Hel­li­well to dis­trib­ute the laun­dered prof­its of Agency-backed drug oper­a­tions to mem­bers of Con­gress, with Dono­van gift­ing Repub­li­cans and Hel­li­well sup­port­ing Democ­rats.

. . . . At the time of the Mar­shall Plan slush fund in Europe, the CIA also took steps which result­ed in drug mon­ey to sup­port anti­com­mu­nist armies in the Far East. In my book Amer­i­can War Machine, I tell how the CIA, using for­mer Office of Strate­gic Ser­vices (OSS) agent Paul Hel­li­well, cre­at­ed two pro­pri­etary firms as infra­struc­ture for a Kuom­intang (KMT) army in Bur­ma, an army which quick­ly became involved in man­ag­ing and devel­op­ing the opi­um there. The two firms were Sea Sup­ply Inc. in Bangkok and CAT Inc. (lat­er Air Amer­i­ca) in Tai­wan. Sig­nif­i­cant­ly, the CIA split own­er­ship of CAT Inc.’s planes with KMT bankers in Tai­wan. This allowed the CIA to deny respon­si­bil­i­ty for the flights when CAT planes, hav­ing deliv­ered arms from Sea Sup­ply to the opi­um-grow­ing army, then returned to Tai­wan with opi­um for the KMT. Even after the CIA offi­cial­ly sev­ered its con­nec­tion to the KMT Army in 1953, its pro­pri­etary firm Sea Sup­ply Inc. sup­plied arms for a CIA-led para­mil­i­tary force PARU, that also was financed, at least in part, by the drug traf­fic.

Prof­its from Thai­land fil­tered back, in part through the same Paul Hel­li­well, as dona­tions to mem­bers from both par­ties in Con­gress. Thai dic­ta­tor Phao Sriyanon, a drug traf­fick­er who was then alleged to be the rich­est man in the world; “hired lawyer Paul Hel­li­well . . . as a lob­by­ist in addi­tion to [for­mer OSS chief William] Dono­van [who in 1953–1955 was U.S. Ambas­sador to Thai­land]. Dono­van and Hel­li­well divid­ed the Con­gress between them, with Dono­van assum­ing respon­si­bil­i­ty for the Repub­li­cans and Hel­li­well tak­ing the Democ­rats.” . . . .
