I have yet to absorb this review, sent to me by Idaho activist Bill Chisholm. The book (or at least this review!) appears to be essential reading for anyone who seeks to penetrate the confusing unraveling/tightening miasmic mess we call the “United States Government,” and, on initial glance, may follow on the heels of Naomi Klein’s The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism —taking her conclusions much much further, plus putting us on notice of nefarious characters who sit in Trump’s initial cabinet and what that portends — unless he is man enough to invoke his famous yell: “You’re fired!”
Paul Craig Roberts has also reviewed the Valentine book, and says: “If you want to learn about the CIA as a deep state within the surface state, read this book.” (Notice: Roberts says “a deep state,” not “the deep state.”)
March 11, 2017
Rarely, if ever, is it possible for a non-fiction writer to present a scenario of bloodcurdling brutality by homicidal maniacs inflicting wanton killing and torture for population subjection; of mass annihilation of entire communities to further economic greed; while relying upon braggadocio interviews from participating actors; and presented in a style that would make aficionados of Edger Allen Poe turn green with envy.
But Douglas Valentine has done it.
With an unprecedented opportunity to interview agents of the CIA and not be restricted by a secrecy oath, the evolution of the CIA method of operation, initially developed in 1953, is enhanced through Vietnam and Afghanistan. It is published as THE CIA AS ORGANIZED CRIME.
Douglas identifies 1953 as the originating date of using civil disorder to foment a coup. That was the inspiration of Kermit Roosevelt using British Petroleum employees, Iranian political dissidents and CIA/Wall Street funds to overthrow democratically elected Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh who was threatening to nationalize British Petroleum.1Wall Street entities were thereby able to gain an ownership interest in Iranian oil and impose a puppet Shah. Exploitation of Iran would continue.
Douglas makes clear the new method of operation. The methodology includes inducing internal strife and factionalizing dissident with the status quo to stimulate an uprising. Funding and arming of both sides is not uncommon. Random acts of brutality and killing will instill fear and submission after power is gained. Brutal police home rule, including torture with seizure and destruction of property, is essential to intimidate the people. Any resistance to the coup is identified as a terrorist act subject to lethal action [including drones] without trial. Civil rights become obsolete. Deliberate lies to, or by, government officials are made as they are necessary (ask Colin Powell). Overt invasion by foreign troops is replaced with infiltrated US Special Forces assisting local entities in “humanitarian” relief.
Douglas has difficulty identifying the capo di tutti capi (the boss of the bosses). He makes repeated references to the Establishment; i.e. other than the government. Other writers have referred to a shadow government, or the elites, the one percent, or the Deep State. Is the ultimate force so concealed that it is not seen, or is there a concern about suicideing (four bullets in the back)?
Allen Dulles relied upon his cronies on Wall Street for funding to create the CIA.2 Wall Street repeatedly sought policies that conflicted with the government. The secrecy of an intelligence agency could conceal their operations by pleading “national security.” Kermit’s coup in Iran was merely repaying their investment. The master must be repaid and Kermit was undoubtedly rewarded.
Gone are the days when a British auxiliary cruiser war ship would be loaded with 500 tons of military explosives. The American passengers were comforted by the US government with assurances of their safety. The Lusitania was stripped of naval escort and ordered to reduce speed and eliminate evasive maneuvering as it entered the enemy submarine infested area. It took more than a year for Wall Street to hype the US public to support World War One. To have failed would have bankrupt Wall Street from the loans to European nations ($450,000,000 to Britain alone) that would have been voided by a Germany victory.3
Gone is the need of a $20 million price paid by Jacob Schiff for the Bolshevik revolution with the prize of the Czar’s largest hoard of gold in the world.4 A straw enemy to demand more military spending, controlled from Manhattan (according to a communist defector) would no longer be necessary. The USSR was repeatedly rescued from collapse by the USA.5
Gone also was the need for FDR and Wall Street cronies to formulate a seven point agenda to economically oppress Japan. Japan was becoming too great a competition for US business. Their access to French oil in Indochina had to be eliminated. Japanese communication codes were broken. Pearl Harbor was not a surprise. The price of more than 3000 casualties at Pearl, and the thousands that followed, were insignificant to Wall Street.6
Kermit changed all of that. Now the CIA has a much more subtle way of compelling nations to satisfy Wall Street dictates—and the cost has been shifted to the taxpayers. Now the CIA, through graft, lies, and intermediary companies, compels foreign nations to accept national debt which they are unable to service.7 Wall Street, in conjunction with the IMF and World Bank, would use unscrupulous methods to rape nations.8 Foreign nations that will not self-destroy by accepting debt will be overthrown by Wall Street using the CIA and the US military.9
Panama offers a succinct example. Torrijos ran up a debt of $3.5 billion, with Wall Street bankers owed $1.6 billion. It was beyond their possibility of servicing. He was able to negotiate a treaty with the US to return sovereignty of the Canal Zone to Panama. The US would pay Panama for the price of the canal in return for favorable banking laws (to hide Wall Street accounts), but the funds for the Canal would be seized by the Wall Street banks: “…US government action in Panama today is for the purpose of subsidizing the Wall Street bankers.”10 The US taxpayers would pay for the loans. Torrijos would die in an airplane explosion. Finger pointing included the CIA as the culprit.
Noriega, who had been second-in-command, was responsible for facilitating the CIA’s drug trafficking. When he convened a meeting of Central American nations to resist CIA oppression, Panama was attacked by US bombardment, killing thousands of Panamanians. Noriega is now in US prison for drug trafficking. The CIA demonstrated to the world the price of disloyalty11. The list is too lengthy to review.12
The CIA has been documented to cause disruptions in numerous foreign nations.13Castro, Qaddafi, bin Laden, Hussein, and Somoza were each CIA assets that were funded and armed to cause turmoil who allowed nationalistic sympathies to interfere with CIA demands.
Nefarious activities of the CIA are not limited to involvement in foreign nations. The “family jewels” revealed the CIA had violated its charter of existence with illegal wiretapping, domestic surveillance, assassination plots, and human experimentation for the first 25 years after its creation.14
President Eisenhower had grounded the CIA’s U-2 flights as the Paris Peace talks with Khrushchev loomed. The CIA countermanded the order and sent Gary Powers on a sabotaged trans-USSR flight to disrupt the peace talks.15 Wall Street cannot tolerate peace.
Fletcher also reveals how the CIA countermanded JFK’s order for protective air cover at the Bay of Pigs.16 Allen Dulles wanted a full scale US military invasion of Cuba. JFK took the rap for the failed invasion and threatened to shatter the CIA into a thousand pieces. JFK was also going to stop the CIA’s war in Vietnam. The assassination of JFK (and MLK) by the CIA is well documented (by other than the Wall Street controlled MSM).17 Lies told to Congress by CIA/military about Tonkin Bay after the assassination would perpetuate the Vietnam (drug) war another eight years.
JFK’s opening of a back-channel communication with the USSR for peace negotiations earned him the epithet of Traitor when discovered by the Pentagon and CIA.18 Peace is absolutely unacceptable by Wall Street.19
Richard Nixon dared to close the CIA school at Fort Hale, Colorado, where the CIA was training Tibetans to invade China.20 The frame-up included a deliberately bungled Watergate break-in by CIA assets.21 The CIA also offered secret tapes that were corrupted by expunging exculpatory evidence. Nixon additionally increased the funding for a war on the CIA’s importing of drugs. Nixon got his pay-back. Nixon even had the audacity to oppose a trade treaty which infuriated David Rockefeller—after David had been nice enough to put Nixon in office.
Jimmy Carter fired 2,800 CIA intelligence agents.22 George Bush (ex CIA Director) and Dick Cheney made a deal with Iranians to make sure he was not reelected.23 Wall Street allegedly bankrupt Jimmy’s peanut business.
The assassination attempt on Ronald Reagan raises eyebrows by conspiracy theorists: that Secret Service agents were distanced from RR; that the limo was unusually distanced from the exit door; that John Hinckley was to the right of RR with the bullet-proof limo door between them; that the bullet entered RR’s left armpit; that VP Bush was an ex director of the CIA; that the Bush and Hinckley family members “maintained social ties” including a dinner scheduled for the following evening; could all be coincidental.24One pundit has suggested Bush ran the oval office after RR “got the message.”
For those who view the 9/11 destruction of the World Trade Centers as a false flag Wall Street act for greed,25 the analysis of the avionics26 would appear to be something only the CIA has the where-with-all to accomplish. The scheduling of numerous overlapping war game exercises moving aircraft west on that date defies coincidental events.27
However, if you assist the CIA by running drugs and illegal military weapons through Arkansas, you can become President and receive lavish foundation donations, profuse book royalties, and overly-funded speaking engagements from Wall Street entities. Also, if your parents and grandparents were faithful CIA agents you can become President without a birth certificate and can use a Social Security number issued in Connecticut even if you never lived there. Being a retired CIA Director or his son can be helpful also.
The evolution of CIA implementing Wall Street exploitation by Special Forces and civil disruptions has been further developed. The Wall Street control of the IMF and WB28 in conjunction with the ECB and Troika, have taken total control of Greece by simply loaning money.29 Has not the Shadow Government gone from a nebulous two dimensional vapor to an operational three dimensional force majeure in full view?
No longer will CIA asset Oliver North have to evade the clear meaning of restrictive statutes to fly drugs north from central America, fly illegal arms south to Nicaraguan Contras, and destroy government records all in violation of the law. 30
No longer will the CIA have to acquire control of banks such as the Nugan Hand to launder their drug money.31
No more will the CIA have to arm Contras to maintain dominance after the peasants (Sandinistas) overthrew the Wall Street controlled puppet Somoza.32
Goldman Sachs made $793 million issuing the Greek bonds and more millions placing bets that they would default.39 Goldman testified before Congress they had no responsibility to verify credit worthiness to purchasers of the “shitty”40 bonds. The creditors now demand possession of national assets such as airports, utilities, roads, buildings, etc., at fire-sale prices. The Greek government is not allowed to fart without permission.
Has the Wall Street controlled CIA already initiated or completed a coup in the US by replacing dovish Flynn (toward Russia) with war-mongering McMaster? Has distorted, illegally leaked information, hyped by MSM (that will publish a CIA puff piece for less than the price of a hooker), been used by the shadow government to prevent any move toward peace? Some say yes.41 Some say crimes have been committed.
Trump has placed many former Goldman employees in key government positions including head of the Treasury. Steve Mnuchin, the appointee to Treasury Secretary, and his father have each been full partners in Goldman.42 Steve left Goldman to head bankrupt IndyMac renamed OneWest. The robo-signing of fraudulent foreclosure notes, and FDIC bailouts (read taxpayer funds), enriched the banks and devastated homeowners—with a large fine but without criminal charges.43 Steve received $10 million when he left. The MSM had very little to say about the nomination.
Goldman Sachs has a lengthy history of employees becoming national government financiers.44
Should we be able to trust Steve? Maybe not.
The perfidious acts of Wall Street are believed by some to extend much further back than 1947.45 The accounts of Treasury security auctions are exclusively handled by the FRBNY.46 Auction accounts exceed $10 trillion annually and have never been audited. The BOG establishes guidelines for audits and the relevant accounts are client accounts—not operational accounts. The destination of the funds (from deficit spending percentage—not roll-over percentage) would have to be to other than the government. If the funds went to the government, there would be no increase in the amount of money in circulation (inflation) or any increase in the national debt. Goldman is conceivably a recipient of a considerable part of the funds that legally belong to the government as a profit.
When a caricature of a business as a vampire squid sucking the blood from the face of humanity is repeatedly used in the media; 47 when the operation of the firm tends to confirm that image by dispensing economic chaos to nations throughout the world; when top executives testify under oath to Congress the image is their business model; when prior appointment of personnel from the firm resulted in a $700 billion bailout of Wall Street (and saving the Treasury Secretary’s $500 million in Goldman stock48); when the firm is undoubtedly connected with the loss of trillions of dollars from accounts that have been hidden from the public for 100 years; when such hiding of money that legally belongs to the government (as profit) violates numerous federal laws including embezzlement, prudence appears to mandate that personnel from alternate firms be appointed to administer the fiscal operations of the United States government.
Douglas’ conclusion is most ominous: The same pattern of societal corruption the CIA has inflicted in the Mideast (and the third world) is being developed within the United States. Greg Palast writes that internal Wall Street memos have identified collection of the [fraudulent] $20 trillion U.S. debt is the “ultimate goal.”49 The objective of the Shadow Government is quite clear.
Wall Street would want to divert our attention with the video screen of sacrificial political lackeys cavorting in DC. The controller of the video is in Manhattan behind the curtain and Toto is nowhere in sight. If there is no change in the current direction of attention, the future is bleak.50
