WMR’s Persons of the Year for 2013: Ed Snowden and Vladimir Putin

December 27-30, 2013 – WMR’s Person of the Year

It was a tough call. Who did more to change the course of history and influence news coverage in 2013 than any other person?

It’s a tie.

Because National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower might be locked up in a U.S. Super Max prison had it not been for Russian President Vladimir Putin granting temporary political asylum to Snowden, we might not have learned as much as we have about the massive surveillance network operated by NSA and its over 45 partners around the globe.

Therefore, WMR’s Persons of the Year are Edward Snowden and Vladimir Putin.

Putin also changed the course of history by cleverly authorizing his foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov (who is a definite runner-up as Person of the Year), to offer the destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons in order to forestall a U.S. and NATO military attack on Syria. A U.S. attack may have helped bring an Al Qaeda and Saudi-dominated regime into power in Damascus with disastrous results for the Middle East, Russia, and the world. Israel would have remained as strong as ever because Al Qaeda and its Saudi patrons have never been a threat to Israel because of an obvious but secret non-aggression pact crafted between Riyadh and Jerusalem.

Raspberries and “Bronx cheers” go to journalist/lawyer Glenn Greenwald and his new billionaire sponsor Pierre Omidyar for creating First Look Media, Inc., a Delaware corporation, to “handle” the remainder of Snowden’s estimated 50,000 NSA documents.

Greenwald has always had a tendency to deal with unsavory types, having once represented as a lawyer Matt Hale, the imprisoned white supremacist and neo-Nazi. Lawyers and journalists have the right to turn down clients and patrons and Greenwald’s actions pass no smell test as far as we can see (or smell). Disclosure of Snowden’s documents have slowed down to an annoying Chinese torture water drip.

As seen from NSA documents, the agency has long had corporate allies and partners from Microsoft and Cisco to Facebook and Yahoo. Why should Omidyar’s PayPal be any different? If NSA has paid Omidyar $250 million dollars in “hush money,” which, in turn, he has given to Greenwald’s First Look, Inc., NSA got off very cheap.
WMR’s Persons of the Year for 2013: Ed Snowden and Vladimir Putin

John Young after court hearing on 2600 Magazine lawsuit over Digital Millennium Copyright Act
Runner up: John Young of

Honorable mention and runner up for Person of the Year goes to John Young of Young has rightfully questioned the slow release of Snowden’s documents. It is certain that had Snowden passed on his massive trove of documents to Young and Cryptome, we would now be reading all of them without the annoying censorship or redactions.

Cryptome remains the best source for whistleblower documents and, for that matter, anything leaked from government agencies or corporations.

The Persons of the Year selection is all about openness and transparency of government. President Obama, who promised the most transparent administration in U.S. history, has given us the most secretive. Obama reluctantly agreed to Russia’s chemical weapons deal in avoiding a U.S. war against Syria and he engaged in discussions with Iran, but he refuses to allow Iran to participate in Syrian peace talks and he continues to launch deadly drone attacks in Muslim countries. He would rank high on only one list for 2013: Milquetoast of the Year. Obama should be given credit for standing up to the Israel Lobby against further crippling sanctions on Iran but he has not shown the same fortitude in pressing Israel to stop its ethnic cleansing of Bedouins from the Negev and West Bank and ceasing the expansion of Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

As far as domestic U.S. politics, there is not one politician said to be running for president in 2016 who is worthy of any positive mention. Every single candidate mentioned so far belongs on a “Scoundrel of the Year” list. Hillary Clinton would top such a list, followed in close order by Chris Christie, Joe Biden, Rick Perry, Sarah Palin, and the rest of the sorry lot.

And belonging on no “person of the year” list are shameless “flash-in-the-pan” celebrities like Miley Cyrus who would do well to move to Moscow and join up with George Soros’s Pussy Riot whores. These contemptible women may be honored by the infotainment industry but that does not mean we have to pay attention to them or even care if they are run over by a bus.

Time magazine selected Pope Francis I as its Person of the Year. We have selected Snowden and Putin but Francis is a worthy choice. We have him in third or fourth place. If he survives Opus Dei, his evil predecessor Benedict XVI, the mafia, and the bankers, Francis may do some more amazing things for the Catholic Church and the world. After 2014, his selection as Person of the Year for 2013 may appear premature because he may deserve the recognition once again for even more noteworthy accomplishments.


Susan Rice’s Failed State

December 23-25, 2013 – Susan Rice’s failed state

President Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice, more than anyone else, is responsible for the creation of the Republic of South Sudan, a barely-viable country peeled away from the Republic of Sudan. For decades, mainly Christian and animist black Africans in southern Sudan waged a bitter civil war against the mainly Arab and Muslim north.

Rice, who, according to American and African diplomats, was involved in more than an “official” relationship with the late Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) guerrilla leader John Garang, pushed constantly for South Sudan’s independence, first as an African policy official in the Bill Clinton National Security Council and State Department, and later as Obama’s ambassador to the UN.

South Sudan has now collapsed into a typical “failed state” scenario reminiscent of Somalia and Mali. Rebels loyal to former vice president Riek Machar launched a rebellion against South Sudan’s black cowboy hat-wearing president Salva Kiir. Kiir was the successor to Rice’s old “friend” Garang who was killed in a suspicious 2005 helicopter crash in Uganda after being lectured at Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni’s ranch by the British, American, and Dutch ambassadors about not reneging on previous deals to open up South Sudan’s oil reserves to Western exploitation after South Sudanese independence. Apparently, Garang wanted a greater percentage of oil revenues from the Western companies. Then Garang perished after his helicopter crashed en route from Museveni’s ranch to the South Sudanese capital of Juba.

Rice has now weighed in on Obama to threaten more U.S. military intervention in South Sudan’s raging civil war. Four U.S. troops who were involved in evacuating Americans from the rebel-held town of Bor were injured in an attack said to be from rebel lines.

The problem with an Africanist like Rice and a Kenyan-American like Obama is that they may be bringing ethnic bigotry “baggage” into their jobs and that may be affecting their policy on Africa. It is well known that former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, who was born in Czechoslovakia, brought anti-Serbian and “south Slav” bigotry to her job as the chief U.S. foreign policy official. Albright mentored Rice, who is also her god daughter. Rice was Albright’s chief African policy official while serving as Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs. More than one African opposition leader complained about Rice’s schoolgirl flirtation with the likes of Museveni, Garang, Rwanda’s Paul Kagame, and Ethiopia’s late leader Meles Zenawi.
Susan Rice will commit U.S. troops to defend her South Sudanese cowboy-hat wearing “boyfriend” Salva Kiir.

Rice was known to practice tribalist-based bigotry in all her government roles. She was anti-Hutu in fratricide-ridden Rwanda. Rice clearly favored Kagame’s brutal minority Tutsi-based regime over the majority Hutu opposition. She instructed her higher-ranking White House and State Department underlings not to meet with visiting Rwandan opposition leaders in Washington. The same holds true for Ethiopia, where Rice’s relationship with the ethnic Tigrean Ethiopian leader Meles caused her to breathe venom on Eritrea, which has had an ongoing border war with Ethiopia. The Ethiopian opposition felt that Rice brought shame and dishonor to the U.S. and Ethiopia when she praised Meles at the dictator’s funeral. Rice said, “Meles was a friend—both to my country and to me, personally . . . among Prime Minister Meles’ many admirable qualities, above all was his world-class mind. A life-long student, he taught himself and many others so much. But he wasn’t just brilliant. He wasn’t just a relentless negotiator and a formidable debater. He wasn’t just a thirsty consumer of knowledge. He was uncommonly wise – able to see the big picture and the long game, even when others would allow immediate pressures to overwhelm sound judgment. Those rare traits were the foundation of his greatest contributions.”

Rice fooled no one with her lavish praise of a brutal tyrant. Her words were spoken as a bereaved mistress.

Rice despises the government of Sudan in Khartoum. Her visceral hatred of Sudanese President Omar Bashir helped land him a criminal indictment for war crimes in Darfur, courtesy of the George Soros-influenced International Criminal Court in The Hague.

Rice now risks plunging the U.S. into an ethnic-based civil war. Her friend Kiirr and his government are ethnic Dinkas. Machar and his rebels are ethnic Nuers. Just as Rice was prepared to commit U.S. troops to side with Salafist Sunnis against Alawites, Christians, and Kurds in Syria, she had no compunction about committing U.S. troops to ethnic bloodletting in South Sudan. Her godmother Albright, who has the blood of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi children and inhabitants in the former Yugoslavia on her hands, trained Rice to be as every much a hate monger as the woman who was once mistaken for a French hotel cleaning lady by the staff of her boyfriend Hashim Thaci, the terrorist leader of the Kosovo Liberation Army.

South Sudan is not only about the Dinka-Nuer rivalry but also about oil. Rebels now control Jonglei and Unity provinces. Unity produces 95 percent of South Sudan’s oil, the commodity that got Garang assassinated in a method common in Africa: aircraft crash. It is certain that outsiders, eager for Unity’s oil, are playing sides in the South Sudan civil war. And Susan Rice, like her unrelated namesake Condoleezza Rice, has her own links to Big Oil. Rice takes her lessons on business in Africa from the Corporate Council on Africa, a lobbying group representing the major U.S. companies doing business in Africa. The council includes Exxon Mobil, Phillips, and Chevron.

Rice has long been not only an embarrassment to the United States in Africa but has helped to create violent chaos that has claimed more than 6 million lives, especially in the Democratic Republic of Congo. It is time for Obama to fire Rice.

Rice should not be judged on the color of her skin or gender in properly overseeing U.S. policy on Africa, but on the content of her character, which is severely lacking in both morality and personal behavior.


Monsanto: Behind the rioting in Ukraine and Thailand

December 6-8, 2013 – Behind the rioting in Ukraine and Thailand: Monsanto

WMR’s sources on Wall Street have cited the mega-producer and pusher of genetically-modified food products, Monsanto, as a key player, along with hedge fund national economy pillager George Soros, as the key players behind the current political turmoil in Ukraine and Thailand.

Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych abruptly halted talks on steering Ukraine into the European Union after it became clear to him that the position of Ukraine as the “bread basket” for eastern Europe, including Russia would be harmed by European Union trade deals that would open up Ukraine’s wheat fields to Monsanto’s adulterated wheat crops. Russia, in particular, saw the EU deal with Ukraine as threatening its economic survival.

The minions of Soros and CIA popular uprising mastermind Gene Sharp of Cambridge, Massachusetts’s Einstein Institution, immediately took to Kyiv’s Maidan Square to call for the ouster of Yanukovych and his government after the deal with the EU was suspended by Yanukovych. It was recently revealed, thanks to the hacking of STRATFOR by America’s latest political prisoner, hacktivist Jeremy Hammond, that two Serbian groups organized by Sharp, Soros, and the CIA to overthrow Serbian president Slobodon Milosevic, OTPOR! and  CANVAS (Center for Applied Nonviolent Action and Strategies), coordinated their strategies with the CIA-affiliated private intelligence group Strategic Forecasting, Inc. (STRATFOR).

CANVAS’s Srdja Popovic, a so-called pro-democracy agitator, was unmasked as a U.S. intelligence asset who avoided any activities that ran counter to U.S. policy, including any OTPOR! or CANVAS support for the Palestinian cause. STRATFOR is also close to the Israeli Mossad with its CEO, George Friedman, being a top defender of Israeli persecution of Palestinians and Israeli Arabs.

The uprising against Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, the sister of one-time Soros ally-turned-opponent. former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, outsed ihn a CIA-inspired military coup in 2006, is also inspired by elements aligned with Monsanto.

Whereas Ukraine is eastern Europe’s breadbasket, Thailand is Asia’s “rice bowl.” Yingluck has made several statements that any agreement on a Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) free trade zone must take into account the needs of Thailand’s farmers, who serve as the bed rock of popular support for Yingluck’s “Red Shirt” movement. After Yingluck came to the defense of Thailand’s farmers, who would oppose any attempt by Monsanto to introduce genetically-modified rice to the country (which previously occurred with Haiti, which saw its rice industry decimated), pro-royalist “Yellow Shirt” protesters took to the streets of Bangkok.

Bangkok became a replay of Maidan Square in Kyiv. Corporate-controlled “rent-a-mobs” demanded the resignations of the democratically-elected governments of Yanukovych and Yingluck. These attempted coups are formulated in the board rooms of Wall Street, with money from Monsanto, logistical support from the CIA, and mobs courtesy of the OTPOR!, CANVAS, Soros’s Open Society Institute, and National Endowment for Democracy agitation networks.

It’s past time for Soros, STRATFOR, Monsanto, and others to prosecuted for violation of the Logan Act, which forbids Americans from engaging in their own foreign policies.


Does “ROYAL” classification have roots in Carter administration?



Left to right: Malawi’s Mutharika, Ethiopia’s Meles and Argentina’s Fernandez de Kirchner were all subjected to NSA/CSEC Close Access Technical Operations (CATO) in 2010. Two died from sudden causes and one has been seriously ill twice. Venezuelan leaders claim U.S. intelligence poisoned Hugo Chavez with cancer. Do assassinations figure into CATO, OLYMPIA, and ROYAL CONCIERGE?


December 2-3, 2013 – Does “ROYAL” classification have roots in Carter administration?

The French have a famous saying, plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose or the “more things change, the more they stay the same.” In the often “old tricks” world of intelligence, the French saying may explain the utmost secrecy assigned to two joint National Security Agency/British Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) signals intelligence programs codenamed “ROYALNET” and “ROYAL CONCIERGE.”

The first, ROYALNET, is designed to bypass encryption systems, including those used by banks and multinational companies, to read the plaintext of traffic. The unencrypted traffic, including electronic funds transfers, is shared between the FIVE EYES signals intelligence partners of the U.S., UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

ROYALNET was successfully employed to break the encryption of networks like the Society for Interbank Financial Telecommunications or “SWIFT,” which handles  billions of dollars of banking transactions daily. Other ROYALNET targets included the encrypted networks of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Brazil’s PETROBRAS state-owned oil company.

ROYAL CONCIERGE tracked online hotel reservation systems to pinpoint the location of diplomats and other government officials. “Contact chaining” was used to link together the common travel plans of government officials by matching “Reservation email addresses and gov.xx addresses,” including those used for car rentals.

ROYAL CONCIERGE is also used to steer a prospective signals intelligence (SIGINT) and/or human intelligence (HUMINT) target top a certain location by “influencing a hotel reservation” or “canceling their visit.” One UK TOP SECRET STRAP1 slide leaked by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden calls the steering of a target into a hotel trap “Close Access Technical Operations.”

It is clear that ROYAL CONCIERGE was employed against heads of state attending the G8 and G20 summits in Canada held from June 25-17, 2010. The Senior U.S. Liaison Officer Ottawa (SUSLOO), the NSA liaison to Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC), coordinated SIGINT monitoring of not only the heads of state and government but also the preparatory meeting of “sherpas.” An NSA document called sherpas “aides and personal representatives of the heads of state and government” who met in Canada onJune 21 and 24. Among those spied upon in their G8 conference hotel rooms in Huntsville, in the Muskoka region of Ontario, and later, at the G20 in Toronto, were Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, Mexican President Felipe Calderon, Saudi King Abdullah, South African President Jacob Zuma, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Malawian President Bingu wa Mutharika, and Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi. The NSA surveillance in Canada was done with the agreement of CSEC and many Canadian law experts claim that such secret surveillance violated Canadian law.

Mutharika died from a sudden heart attack two years later on April 5, 2012. He was replaced by the staunchly pro-American Joyce Banda. Zenawi died at the age of 57 on August 20, 2012 after contracting an infection while being treated in a Belgian hospital. Fernandez de Kirchner was diagnosed with thyroid cancer on December 27, 2011 at the age of 58 and underwent surgery to remove a blood clot from her brain on October 27, 2013 at the age of 60. All had been subjected to Close Access Technical Operations while they were at the G20 meeting in Canada.

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who is an avid fan of all Israeli human rights abuses, including targeted assassinations, personally invited Mutharika and Meles to the summits in Muskoka and Toronto. They were the only African leaders personally invited by Harper to Canada and within a period of two years both died suddenly. Brazil’s President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva planned to attend the summit conferences but he canceled at the last minute because of what he claimed was his need to attend to massive flooding in the northeast region of Brazil. Brazil and its leadership had been under massive surveillance by CSEC and NSA as part of a program codenamed OLYMPIA. In October 2011, Lula was diagnosed with throat cancer.

The CIA has a sordid history of assassinating or trying to assassinate foreign leaders with cancer- and other disease-causing substances. Victims and intended victims include Cuban leader Fidel Castro who survived, Congolese Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba who was bayoneted and shot before he could be administered a CIA-produced “exotic” drug, Sukarno of Indonesia who died from kidney failure in 1970 after being ousted in a CIA coup in 1965, and Norodom Sihanouk of Cambodia, who, like Castro, survived several CIA assassination attempts.

ROYAL CONCIERGE and ROYAL NET appear to be coordinated for events requiring foreign heads of state/government travel by a classified program of the FIVE EYES partners called Extended Shared Enterprise Corporate Service or “ESECS.” ROYAL CONCIERGE also involves HUMINT operations. Although the program monitors hotel and auto rental reservations, little has been written about how such a program could provide surreptitious access to hotel rooms by breaking into the electronic door key networks employed many many hotels and motels.

Involved in ground work for surveillance of the G8/G20 summits was the Economics and Global Issues element within NSA (S17), which is part of the Signals Intelligence Division. Tasking involved S12, which issued a directive on “SIGINT Reporting in Support of the G8 and G20 Summits, Canada, June 2010.”

Many publications and networks have refrained from publishing the names of NSA officers involved in massive communications surveillance, even resorting to redacting” or blacking out names and other identifying information in a manner much like that employed by Freedom of Information Act disclosure teams at U.S. intelligence agencies.. WMR makes no deals with intelligence agencies. In keeping with this policy, the following names of NSA officials have been gleaned from a “SECRET/REL” document titled “NSA Lends Support to Upcoming G8 and G20 Summits in Canada,” — Rick McIntyre (SO121), Jim Vidas, and Susan Dawson. The document states that S12, the National Security Operations Center or “NSOC” at NSA headquarters in Fort Meade, Maryland, and the “CTMMC” were all involved in conducting surveillance on the officials gathered in Canada for the G8/G20.

One hotel guest at the G20/G8 in Canada may have provided comic relief for NSA eavesdroppers: Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), who was arrested on May 14, 2011 by New York Police. Strauss- Kahn later resigned over charges that he had raped a chamber maid at the Sofitel Hotel in New York. It was also alleged that he had made unwanted advances toward other maids at hotels around the world.

The CTMMC abbreviation is close to another NSA cell called CTMAC, or Counter-Terrorism Mission Aligned Cell. CTMAC is involved in targeting individuals for assassination by drone. With two of the leaders under NSA surveillance in Canada dying suddenly and a third falling critically ill twice, it is incumbent on the media to start “naming names” of NSA personnel. They could be in a position to testify about NSA espionage being used to commit capital crimes.

ROYAL has a dark past as a special security caveat dating from the Jimmy Carter administration. Carter’s CIA director, Admiral Stansfield Turner, write that ROYAL was picked as the code name for a special compartmented U.S. intelligence program designed to protect politically sensitive and potentially embarrassing information gathered by means not all of which were considered orthodox. Turner claimed it was Carter’s National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski who selected the ROYAL designation for critically-sensitive intelligence products, sources, and methods.

Left to right: Ethiopia’s Meles, Malawi’s Mutharika, and Argentina’s Fernandez de Kirchner were all subjected to NSA/CSEC Close Access Technical Operations (CATO) in 2010. Two died from sudden causes and one has been seriously ill twice. Venezuelan leaders claim U.S. intelligence poisoned Hugo Chavez with cancer. Do assassinations figure into CATO, OLYMPIA, and ROYAL CONCIERGE?

At the time of its implementation, ROYAL was considered too vague by some U.S. intelligence officials because it was not tied directly to an established intelligence source or method, such as signals intelligence, imagery intelligence, or communications intelligence. However, it was soon determined that ROYAL covered all intelligence gathered on purely political targets having little to nothing to do with national security. Five intelligence sources were quoted by The Daily Oklahoman of September 6, 1980 as saying ROYAL existed only to protect President Carter from “potential embarrassment.”

ROYAL did not prevent the disclosure of embarrassing intercepts of Libyan government diplomatic communications that described Carter’s brother Billy as “our agent of influence” in the United States. Although the intercepts of Libyan communications mentioning Billy Carter were stamped ROYAL, their contents found their way into the media and caused a huge political headache for President Carter who was being challenged by Ronald Reagan for the presidency.

Other than the President, Brzezinski, Turner, and other select members of Carter’s national security team, only eight members of Congress were cleared for ROYAL. They included Robert Byrd (D-WV), Birch Bayh (D-IN), Barry Goldwater (R-AZ), and Howard Baker (R-TN) in the U.S. Senate and Representatives Tip O’Neill (D-MA), John Rhodes (R-AZ), Edward Boland (D-MA), and Bob Wilson (R-CA).

The eight members of Congress did not have automatic access to ROYAL intelligence. They were forced to ask for access to ROYAL documents and read them in a special secure room where they were not permitted to take notes or share the intelligence with staff members.


Evidence on the Boston Marathon Bombing



April 21-22, 2013 — Special Sunday-Monday Edition. Tsarnaev brothers tied to anti-Russian operations in Boston, Finland, UK, and Israel

The pre-Boston Marathon activities of Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the two brothers accused of detonating two homemade pressure cooker bombs near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15, have been linked to anti-Russian operations with their bases in Boston, Finland, the United Kingdom, and Israel. Most of these operations, designed to overthrow the government of Russian President Vladimir Putin and establish a Salafist Islamic Emirate in the Russian Caucasus, including Chechnya and Dagestan, where the Tsarnaev family has family and residential roots, respectively, involve the activities of the Chechen “government-in-exile.”

U.S. law enforcement has linked the elder Tsarnaev, allegedly shot and mortally wounded by police after engaging them in a shootout on April 19, to electronic communication with the Caucasus Emirate of Doku Umarov, a Chechen guerrilla leader who has been responsible for a number of deadly terrorist bombings inside Russia.

From its creation in 2007 to 2011, the U.S. State Department did not list the Caucasus Emirate as a foreign terrorist organization. In the meantime, other exiled Chechen groups that were, at the very least, ambivalent to the terrorist activities of the Caucasus Emirate, received aid and assistance from various anti-Russian non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and those within the U.S. State Department who handle political asylum requests. The Caucasus Emirate adheres to radical Salafist Islam and is believed to receive support from Saudi Arabia.

Specifically, U.S. law enforcement believes that Tamerlan Tsarnaev was communicating with the Kavkaz Center, a website based in Helsinki, Finland that has been criticized by Finnish Lutheran minister-turned-Russian Orthodox priest Juha Molari and Johan Backman of the Finnish-Caucasus Friendship Society of being a mouthpiece for Chechen extremists like Umarov and others.  Backman told the Russian news network RT that Finland may have promoted terrorism by allowing the Kavkaz Center to freely operate in the country. Backman said he “told the Finnish public the truth about the activities of Doku Umarov in Finland because in Finland, the information channel of terrorists, the so-called Kavkaz Center has been operating for several years without any kind of reaction from the government or officials of Finland . . . Of course this raises questions about whether Finnish authorities and the government of Finland are promoting terrorism against Russia.”

International hedge fund mogul George Soros has an extensive political operation in Finland which he uses to destabilize Russia by promoting Russian opposition and separatist groups, including the Chechens. Soros has also been a major donor to President Barack Obama and other Democrats but also an investor in interests involving the Bush family, including The Carlyle Group. One Soros-influenced group in Finland may be Pro-Karelia, a Finnish nationalist organization that seeks to convert the Russian autonomous Republic of Karelia, formerly a part of Finland, to part of the Finnish nation and restore the pre-World War II Finno-Russian border.

In fact, during the 2008 U.S. presidential campaign, the Kavkaz Center was quick to pick up on a WMR article that reported that, if elected, GOP candidate John McCain and his foreign policy adviser, the noted neo-conservative Randy Scheunemann, with the urging of the anti-Putin hedge fund tycoon and CIA-instructed George Soros, promised to not only recognize the independence of Chechnya but other Caucasus states, including Dagestan, which Umarov wants to see break away from Russia as part of the Caucasus Emirate.

The Kavkaz Center reported: “According to the American pro-Russian “dissidents” in the person of a journalist Wayne Madsen in the American edition of Online Journal [which republished the WMR article], a group of American neoconservatives, led by McCain foreign policy adviser Randy Scheunemann and George Soros, lobbying Washington’s recognition of Chechnya, Dagestan and Ingushetia as independent states in response to recognition of Russia the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.”

The Kavkaz Center was the first to publish manifestos by Umarov claiming responsibility for the terrorist bombings of the Nevsky Express train between Moscow and St.Petersburg and the Moscow Metro, and the attack on Moscow’s Domodedovo airport.

Suspiciously, the Kavkaz Center published a denial from the “Mujahideen of the Caucasus Emirate Province of Dagestan” on the Boston Marathon bombing, a denial that tried to lay blame for the attack on Moscow, a meme the neocon supporters of Chechnya in the United States can be expected to advance in the next weeks and months. The Kavkaz statement reads:

“After the events in Boston, the US, information has been distributed in the press saying that one of the Tsarnaev brothers spent 6 months in Dagestan in 2012. On this basis, there are speculative assumptions that he may have been associated with the Mujahideen of the Caucasus Emirate, in particular with the Mujahideen of Dagestan.

The Command of the Province of Dagestan indicates in this regard that the Caucasian Mujahideen are not fighting against the United States of America. We are at war with Russia, which is not only responsible for the occupation of the Caucasus, but also for heinous crimes against Muslims.

Also, remember that even in respect to the enemy state of Russia, which is fighting the Caucasus Emirate, there is an order by the Emir Dokku Umarov, which prohibits strikes on civilian targets.

In this regard, the Command of the Mujahideen of the Province of Dagestan urges the media, primarily the American, to halt speculations and promotion of Russian propaganda.

If the US government is really interested in establishing the true organizers of Boston bombings, and not in complicity with the Russian show, it should focus on the involvement of Russian security services in the events.

Friends of McCain, the late Boris Berezovsky, Albright, and Soros planning terrorist operations against Russia. Have they now turned their sites on America as pro-Saudi Salafists take control of the Chechen exile movement under the watchful eye of Saudi intelligence chief Prince Bandar (“Bandar Bush”)? The culprits of the Boston attack are the same as those who were involved in 9/11 — the neocons and their loyalists inside the U.S. government.

One Chechen “government-in-exile” leader not only received financial backing from exiled Russian-Israeli tycoon Boris Berezovsky, who was found hanged in his home in Ascot, outside London on March 23 of this year, but was a good friend of Berezovsky. He is

Akhmed Zakayev, the exiled Chechen Republic’s “Prime Minister” who received asylum in the United Kingdom in 2003 and who is accused by Russian authorities of thirteen counts of murder and hostage-taking. Zakayev immediately accused Putin’s government of assassinating Berezovsky. The post mortem concluded that Berezovsky was hanged but with no evidence of violence at the time of his death, leading investigators to conclude that suicide was the likely cause of death. Berezovsky’s personal bodyguard was

Avi Navama, a former Mossad agent.

In fact, the Tsarnaev family appears to have been granted asylum at the same time a number of stateless “professional refugees” from Chechnya, including another Chechen separatist regime foreign minister, Ilyas Akhmadov, were receiving asylum in the West. The Tsarnaev brothers and their father, Anzon Tsarnaev, received official asylum in the United States in Arlington, Virginia in 2002 after arriving in the United States on tourist visas from the Republic of Kyrgyzstan in Central Asia. Kyrgyzstan was held in high regard at the time because it had granted the Pentagon air base rights to the Manas airfield, near the capital of Bishkek, to fight the Taliban and “Al Qaeda” in Afghanistan.

In 2007, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev received a green card, permanent residency status in the United States. Dzhokhar was sworn in as a U.S. citizen on September 11, 2012. His older brother, Tamerlan, was initially refused a green card and, according to Anzon, returned to Russia to renew his passport. Eventually, Tamerlan did obtain some sort of permanent residency status in the United States but his application for U.S. citizenship was turned down because of “red flags” either because of a domestic abuse issue with his wife or concerns raised by U.S. and/or Russian security agencies about his political ties. Anzor’s claim that Tamerlan returned to Russia to renew his passport contradicts claims that Tamerlan, in addition to his brother, were holders of Kyrgyzstan passports when they first applied for green card status in the United States. There is, of course, the possibility that Tamerlan could only renew his Kyrgyzstan passport at the Kyrgyz embassy in Moscow.

As with Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the Department of Homeland Security and Justice Department initially had problems with “Foreign Minister” Akhmadov’s political asylum request, first made in 2002, the same year the Tsarnaev’s arrived in America. After his request for political sylum was turned down, Akhmadov found himself with a huge array of political supporters urging Homeland Security to reconsider. They included McCain, Senator Edward Kennedy, former Secretaries of State Madeleine Albright and Alexander Haig, former national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, former CIA director James Woolsey, and former Defense Secretary and deputy CIA chief Frank Carlucci. A sympathetic article in The Washington Post — a features article, not an op-ed piece — on Akhmadov’s plight was published on March 20, 2005. The article was written by Matthew Brzezinski, the nephew of Zbigniew Brzezinski who was championing Akhmadov’s cause.

House Judiciary Committee chairman James Sensenbrenner (R-WI) and chairman of Judiciary Committee’s immigration, border security and claims subcommittee John Hostettler (R-IN) urged Attorney General John Ashcroft to review Akhmadov’s initial asylum in the United States because of information they had that indicated Akhmadov was linked to terrorism.

McCain has called for a military commission trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and a declaration that he is an “enemy combatant” undeserving of constitutional protections. A military commission trial would permit the government to suppress evidence that could tie individuals like McCain and other neocons to support for Chechen separatist terrorism.

One of the officials of the Chechen Republic independence government in Grozny was Vice Prime Minister Shamil Basayev, held responsible for the deadly terrorist attack on a school in Beslan, North Oseetia in September 2004. Basayev was killed in an explosion in Ingushetia in July 2006. Akhmadov was said to have been close to Basayev. In 1999, Basayev and Amir Khattab, a Saudi Salafist who ran “Al Qaeda’s” training camps in Afghanistan, attacked Dagestan, where Chechen terrorists had network of sympathizers.

Akhmadov and his supporters won the day when in April 2004 a U.S. Immigration Judge in Boston issued an order that granted Akhmadov political asylum in the United States. The U.S. government quickly dropped its asylum objection in August 2004 and political asylum was granted to Akhmadov the same month.

While awaiting an asylum decision, Akhmadov lived for a year in the Boston home of former U.S. News and World Report Moscow correspondent Nicholas Daniloff, who was arrested by the KGB as a CIA spy in 1986. Akhmadov later moved to Vermont. Akhmadov’s cause was also taken up by two leading neo-conservatives, Max Kampelman, aka Max Kampelmacher, chief U.S. arms negotiator under Ronald Reagan and, more importantly, at the time of his death on January 25, 2013, co-chair of the American Committee for Peace in Chechnya and board member of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA). Kampelman hired the high-priced New York law firm of Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver and Jacobson to represent Akhmadov. The “Shriver” in the law firm’s name is the late Sargent Shriver, who obviously prevailed on Senator Ted Kennedy, his brother-in-law, to support Akhmadov’s asylum cause.

In 2007, Umarov, himself, stated that the Chechen Republic leadership had been infiltrated by Zionist elements through their connections with Berezovsky.

It is noteworthy that Chechen Salafist guerrillas have fought against U.S. forces in Afghanistan and Iraq and have been associated with Salafist guerrillas fighting against the Bashar al Assad government in Syria. Secretary of State John Kerry has approved $130 million in military assistance for the Syrian rebels and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is negotiating a $10 billion arms agreement with Saudi Arabia, Israel, and the United Arab Emirates. All three countries have covert connections with the Chechen Islamist guerrillas.

The CIA has long had a relationship with Chechnya’s independence movement. International “humanitarian” worker Fred Cuny, an ex-Marine and veteran of humanitarian operations in Biafra, Bosnia, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Somalia, Croatia, Haiti, Mexico, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Turkey, Albania, Kurdistan, Armenia, Zaire, Bangladesh, and Iraq and the founder of the Intertect Relief and Reconstruction Corporation (IRRC) of Dallas, Texas and the International Crisis Group, both suspected CIA fronts, disappeared in Chechnya in 1995 while working with Chechen separatist guerrillas fighting against Russian troops. IRRC eventually became Interworks, which is headquartered in Madison, Wisconsin.

IRRC reportedly had Bosnia contracting connections with the Houston-based Halliburton Corporation and its then-subsidiary Kellogg, Brown & Root.

Cuny worked closely with operatives of Soros’s Open Society Institute in Sarajevo and Zagreb on Balkan matters. Provided with a $50 million budget by Soros, Cuny and the other Soros interlocutors, including noted neocon Morton Abramowitz; Aryeh Neier, the president of the Soros Foundation; Lionel Rosenblatt, President of the CIA-linked Refugees International; and the World Bank’s Mark Malloch Brown put the finishing touches on the final breakup of Yugoslavia.

Interest has been shown in the presence at the Boston Marathon of security personnel from the private security contractor Craft International, founded by the late Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle. The personnel were seen wearing Craft’s signature garb and ball caps with the Craft skull logo, as well as carrying back packs and in one case, a remote control device that resembles a programmable detonator. On February 2, 2013, Kyle and his colleague were shot and killed by PTSD-afflicted veteran Eddie Ray Routh, who is being held in the Erath County, Texas jail on a $3 million bond. Craft International is headquartered in Dallas, which, like IRRC and its successor Interworks, is involved in “international humanitarian aid organization.”

Presence of van with foreign consular plates in New Bedford and Diplomatic Security Service in Watertown

Akhmadov has written at least two op-eds for The Boston Globe, one dated September 29, 2003 titled “Talk peace in Chechnya” and the other dated February 24, 2005 titled “Russia’s forgotten war.” NBC News anchorman Brian Williams noted the odd presence of a U.S. State Department Diplomatic Security agent in Watertown shortly after Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was apprehended while hiding in a boat parked in a yard in the Boston suburb. On April 20, FBI and Department of Homeland Security agents arrested two men believed to be connected to the Tsarnaev brothers at the Hidden Brook apartments in New Bedford, Massachusetts, near the campus of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, where Dzhokhar Tsarnaev attended as a student. A minivan with foreign consular plates was present at the time of the arrests in New Bedford.

Earlier, two men said to be from Kazakhstan and the girlfriend of one of the men were arrested by the FBI at the same apartment complex. One of those arrested had a novelty license plate on his BMW that read: “Terrorista #1.” All those arrested were claimeed to have been UMass-Dartmouth friends of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. After the arrests of the two male Kazakhs and the female, the UK’s Daily Mail reported that two Russian-speaking men in their 20s, claiming to be reporters for The Boston Globe, entered the apartment of the Kazakhs through an unlocked patio door and claimed they were friends of the arrested residents. They said, “We are friends of theirs. They are talking, they are talking’ and closed the door. There was no firm denial from the Globe concerning the credentials of the two men who insisted that they were reporters for the newspaper. However, it is noteworthy that Akhmadov previously had a relationship with the paper as an op-ed writer.

There is another foreign government angle to the marathon bombing. Israel National Police Chief Yohanan Danino stated he was dispatching Israeli police officers and detectives to Boston to meet with FBI agents in the hours after the terrorist bombing. With an Arab connection to the bombings being ruled out, what connection does Israel have with the Chechen terrorists. WMR has described the close ties between Israel’s support community in the United States and elsewhere and exiled Chechen separatists associated with terrorism. Israeli police insisted the visit to Boston by the Israelis was planned before the April 15 bombing.

Ha’aretz reported that Ron Dermer, a foreign affairs adviser to Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and prospective Israeli ambassador to the United States, told a secret group of Jewish leaders in New York that the Boston marathon bombings would increase U.S. support for Israel. Netanyahu uttered the same comments on Fox News after the 9/11 attack saying the attack was “very good for Israel.”

It is now known that Russian law enforcement asked the FBI about Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s possible connections with terrorists before he made a trip to Russia in 2011. The FBI stated it had no information on Tsarnaev’s ties to radicals. The FBI is likely telling the truth about Tsarnaev’s ties to radicals. In fact, he had ties but to groups like the Chechen government-in-exile and allied Chechen guerrillas, which are partly based in Boston, and have been supported by the neocons like McCain and Woolsey, the CIA, and George Soros.

With those connections it is likely that there were shoot on sight orders issued for the Tsarnaev brothers by Langley to its friends in the Israeli, Boston, and Chicago police. One of the brothers is dead and the other is seriously wounded with reports that his throat injury may permanently disable his ability to talk. And an inability to “talk” is the next best thing other than death as far Langley is concerned.






April 26-28, 2013 — Speical Report. Blowback in Boston resulted from America’s creation of a “second Afghanistan” in the Caucasus

No lessons were learned by the CIA or the U.S. government from America’s fostering of a Jihadist mercenary force in Afghanistan to fight the USSR in the 1980s. That Saudi-financed and supported mercenary force led to the creation of “Al Qaeda” and the Taliban that directly led to the blowback of 9/11 when some Wahhabist and Salafist brainwashed mercenaries were convinced by their handlers to participate in a terrorist attack on the United States.

In a replay of history, two recruited Jihadist mercenaries from the North Caucasus region of Russia, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, were either convinced by their handlers to become actual Islamist terrorists and attack the United States, in their case the Boston Marathon, or were intelligence assets used as dupes by their handlers to take the blame for the Boston Massacre of 2013.

WMR has carefully analyzed several leaked U.S. State Department cables from 2008 to 2010 and discovered that U.S. intelligence has fomented the Islamist terrorist movement in the Caucasus in an almost carbon copy of the CIA’s support for Afghan guerrillas during their war with the Soviet Union. And, like Afghanistan, the United States has reaped the blowback of active support for terrorism against the Russian Federation. Hardly found in the State Department cables are any references to Chechen and other North Caucasus Islamists groups as “terrorists.” In fact. State Department verbiage refers to the terrorists as “rebels,” “fighters,” “separatists,” and “ethnic nationalists.” During the 1980s, Afghan mujaheddin were referred to as “freedom fighters” by the Reagan and Bush I administrations. Anyone who experienced 13th century-style Taliban-ruled Afghanistan would have hardly called the Islamic Emirate that ruled that country with Saudi, Pakistani, and UAE backing a supporter of “freedom.”

WMR has learned from National Security Agency (NSA) sources that U.S. intelligence analysis reports on terrorism in the Caucasus must not call Chechen or other Islamists cited in NSA intercepts of Russian police, Federal Security Bureau, and Russian military communications “terrorists.” In 2003, NSA, under General Michael Hayden, ordered that all signals intelligence (SIGINT) analysis reports were no longer to refer to Chechen and other terrorists as “rebels” but “guerrillas.”

The change had a comic effect. One NSA analyst began spelling “guerrilla” as “gorilla.” NSA SIGINT reports referred to “gorillas” heading into the mountains in Chechnya and “gorilla movements.” After the obvious jokes about apes’ bowel movements, a supervisor informed the analyst that the target of NSA eavesdropping was the Caucasus and not the Congo.

The following details on U.S. intelligence destabilization of the Caucasus region were culled from unclassified, sensitive unclassified, Confidential, and Secret cables. Bracketed sentences [...] contain the editor’s comments on noteworthy contents of the cables:

Stir up tensions due to the separation of Circassian diaspora in Adygea from fellow ethnic Cherkess groups in Karachay-Cherkessk and Kabardino-Balkaria. [On March 21, 2010. the CIA-linked Jamestown Foundation, which hosted Tamerlan Tsarnaev at seminars in the Caucasus between January and July 2012, when he was visiting the region, held a seminar in Tbilisi, Georgia on the Circassian diaspora and "Hidden Nations" of the Caucasus. One of the local CIA/George Soros-supported NGOs stirring up Circassian nationalism is identified: Adygea Khasa, a Circassian protest group].

Skagestad stated the Norwegian PST (FBI) ignored INTERPOL arrest warrants and permitted Zakayev to visit Norway from London.

Alexander Litvinenko, the ex-Russian FSB officer who defected to anti-Russian groups abroad is named as a friend of the Norwegian head of the “Chechnya Peace Forum,” Ivar Amundsen, who is described by U.S. embassy Oslo as very “tight lipped” about his activities.

Oran, 22.02.2009


From: A citizen Address: Oran Subject: Warning of a danger from a woman from Chechnya

Mr. Ambassador of the American Embassy in Algiers, Sir, pay attention to a Chechen woman married to a terrorist man whose name is Houari, aged 38 years, who was born in 1970 (and) resides at 3 Avenue Hammou Mokhtar Saint-Eugene, Oran on the fourth floor. This man was in prison at Guantanamo but is now free. This man is in contact via telephone and Internet in his home with his wife from the country of Chechnya. This woman is filling her Algerian husband’s brain with ideas of revenge and terrorism directed against the American embassy, in an effort to make him understand that the Americans caused him to lose those years of his life in prison and that the Americans are non-believers, and they must not remain on Algerian territory, and the people of Oran should fight the American Embassy.

So, Mr. Ambassador, the phone and internet should be cut off at the house so that there will be no more contact between Chechens and Algerians – the man and the woman. Also, you should separate the woman from the man to allow the country of Algeria to live in peace. This woman is getting her husband at his weak point, a little girl who was born in Chechnya. Using this point of weakness the woman wants to come to Oran, Algeria, and she is going to change the morale of her husband and she is making him angry at the American Embassy and he is going to be against you, and he will fight you Americans with help. His friends here will be impressed and this man is impressed by the Chechen woman. I am trying to warn in order to prevent terrorism from returning to Algeria because of a woman from Chechnya.

Accept my request, sir, and my salutations.

May 2-4, 2013 — Kazakhstan aiding U.S Boston investigation


Translated from Russian by WMR’s Moscow Correspondent

Kazakhstan is Helping US Investigation of Boston Bombing

Kazakhstan and two friends of the Boston bomber are cooperating with the US in its investigation of the terrorist act, which claimed the lives of three people.

The Ministry of International Affairs of Kazakhstan released a statement today about its cooperation with American investigators who are investigating the terrorist act. which took place on April 15 in Boston. The agency emphasized that Tsarnaev’s university friends, two of whom are citizens of Kazakhstan, are not accused of preparing the explosions. They have been accused of destroying evidence.

According to the press service of the Kazakh Ministry of International Affairs: “ At the moment the necessary consular services are being provided for our citizens. Their guilt has not been proven yet as the investigation is still ongoing. Dias Kadyrbaev and Azamat Tazhayakov are cooperating with law enforcement agencies and are assisting them.”

A court hearing for Tsarnaev’s friends occurred yesterday. Criminal charges were officially filed for the three men. The charges include hindering an investigation by destroying evidence.

The Americans [investigators] believe that they hid Tsarnaev’s laptop computer and took a black backpack, which contained fragments of Chinese fireworks, from the dormitory. Tsarnaev allegedly used the powder from the fireworks to make the bombs. The backpack was later thrown into the trash. These students are claiming that, approximately one month before the event, Tsarnaev bragged about knowing how to make a bomb.

The terrorist attack occurred April 15, at the Boston marathon. Three people died and more than 260 were injured. The men suspected of carrying out the attacks are believed to be Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.




August 30-September 1, 2013 — Partner of Boston bombers’ “Uncle Ruslan” right hand man to 3 CIA directors

The murky world of the CIA’s past and current support for radical Islamist groups on three continents has emerged in newly-released documents from the CIA that show that Graham Fuller, the agency’s one-time top interlocutor with the Saudis, Afghan mujaheddin, and Muslim Brotherhood, was a right-hand man to three CIA directors.

Fuller, a business partner of Ruslan Tsarni (Tsarnaev), the uncle of the accused Boston Marathon bombers, served as a close adviser to CIA directors William Casey, William Webster, and Robert Gates, according to recently declassified internal CIA memoranda. Since retiring from the CIA, Fuller has been engaged in supporting the Chechen Islamist guerrilla groups fighting Russia as well as the Republic of Georgia, which has become a base for anti-Russian and anti-Syrian military activities, which includes, the transport of chemical weapons to Syrian rebels from the Pentagon-operated Richard G. Lugar Center for Public Health Research in Tbilisi, which, although a biological weapons research laboratory, also warehouses chemical agents, according to U.S. intelligence sources familiar with the facility. The Tbilisi facility was the major source of chemical agents used by Syrian rebels to attack civilians outside of Damascus in a “false flag” terrorist operation coordinated by the CIA and Mossad.

Throughout the 1980s, Fuller was front and center at many of the acts of violence in the Middle East and South Asia, from Lebanon and Syria to Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, and South Yemen. One CIA memo describes how Fuller was also heavily involved in the early part of the CIA’s stirring political activities in the Balkans during the collapse of Communism in eastern Europe. A May 22, 1985, memo from George Kolt, the CIA’s National Intelligence Officer for Europe, invited Fuller to a June 11, 1985, dinner at CIA Headquarters at which the former U.S. ambassador to Bulgaria, Robert Barry, discussed at the Confidential level “The Strategic Importance of the Balkans for the United States.”

A National Security Planning Group (NPSG) meeting memo on Lebanon, dated February 24, 1984, cites a “think piece” from Fuller titled “How We Confront Syria from Here on Out.”  The revelation is timely as President Obama makes plans to launch a U.S. military strike on an old adversary of Fuller and the CIA. Fuller was the National Intelligence Officer for the Near East and South Asia. On September 23, 1984, CIA director Casey had only one scheduled meeting and it was with Fuller.

Fuller’s think piece, dated February 1984 and classified Secret, states that Lebanon “has not been good turf for us to take on the Syrians,” adding “our overall strategy against Syria must involve far broader action with the Arab world.” Fuller saw Syria as “the leader of a radical faction including Libya, PDRY and Iran, in opposition to moderate Arab states associated with the US.” Of these nations, Libya’s leader Muammar Qaddafi was overthrown and assassinated by U.S.-led radical Islamist rebels and the PDRY was absorbed into Yemen. Fuller’s brief included the PDRY. Only Syria and Iran remain as states opposed to U.S. policies in the region.

In his “think piece” Fuller advocated the U.S. confronting Syria in Jordan and the Persian Gulf. The CIA memos also describe how President Ronald Reagan’s Middle east envoy, Donald Rumsfeld, helped the CIA carry out its “strategy of tension” in the region by arming Saddam Hussein’s Iraq in its war with Iran. A formerly Top Secret CIA memo, also dated February 24, 1984, describes how Saudi Crown Prince Abdallah, the present Saudi King, “pressed Syria to reduce its support for Iran,” although it describes Abdallah’s relationship  with Hafez al-Assad, the father of current Syrian leader Bashir al-Assad, as “close” and “personal.”

Fuller’s think piece also describes how “Christian Phalange forces (LF) or even among right wing Christian officers in the Lebanese Army . . . could be encouraged to carry out terrorist attacks against the Syrian presence in Lebanon.” This admission provides proof that the CIA relied on terrorism as a weapon, which in the case of Lebanon, was used against Syrian forces using Christian proxies. But Fuller did not merely limit the CIA’s use of Christian proxies to attack Syrian forces in Lebanon but also anti-Syrian elements of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), which, he wrote, “will attack Syrian interests on the basis of their own interests.” Fuller also saw using Jordanian assets in Syria to attack the Assad government. Fuller also contemplated the use of Turkish, Iraqi, and Israeli forces against Syria.

Fuller helped prepare two reports for Casey described in a Secret March 29, 1984 memo:

Tab I: “talking points prepared for you by David Low on Iraqi use of chemcial [sic] weapons.”

Tab J: “two memos recently prepared by DDI/NESA on the Iraqi chemical weapons program.”

Other proxies used by the CIA included pro-Israeli Druze. Fuller write “Israel enjoys the most ready access to them.” Fuller also contemplated using pro-Iraqi Ba’ath Party elements centered in Tripoli, Lebanon and the pro-Iranian Sunni Islamic Unification Group, also based in Tripoli, to attack Syrian interests. Inside Syria, Fuller advocated using the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood, Kurds, anti-Baath Party Alawites, to strike Assad’s government. Fuller also advocated U.S. reliance on Muslim Brotherhood forces in Afghanistan in the CIA war against the Soviets.

Fuller was also quoted in the Report of the President’s Special Review Board, composed of former Senator John Tower, former National Security Adviser Brent Scowcroft, and former Senator Edmund Muskie (the “Tower Commission”) that investigated the Iran-contra scandal. Fuller stated that one of the CIA’s priorities was to “remove Qadhafi” as a way to pressure Iran and “show U.S. resolve.” Fuller also anticipated Ayatollah Khomeini’s declining health as a chance for the CIA to take advantage of Iranian instability by influencing the “growth of private armies and jockeying for political advantage by competing groups.”

A March 29, 1984, formerly Secret memo, describes the NPSG meeting on the Iran-Iraq war and the kidnapping of CIA Beirut station chief William Buckley by terrorists in Lebanon. Fuller submitted a brief on the Iran-Iraq war. Fuller “argues the need for aiding Iraq sooner rather than later. The program that he suggests include support to the Iraqi air force and USG [U.S. Government] support for a pipeline which will relieve Iraq’s economic descent.”

The Tower report also indicates that Fuller was coordinating his own activities with Admiral John Poindexter, the National Security Adviser, and an “independent NSC consultant,” Dennis Ross, a pro-Israeli policy specialist, who would later serve as a Middle East special adviser to Presidents Bush 41, Clinton, and Obama.

On February 21, 1986, Fuller attended a private luncheon in the CIA director’s private dining room hosted by Robert Gates, the CIA deputy director, for General Jeannou Lacaze, the African Affairs adviser to the French Defense Minister; Lt. Col. Christian Luc Vaganay, executive assistant to General Lacaze, and Marc Weydman, the Direction Générale de la Sécurité Extérieure (DGSE) representative in Washington. The previous July, the DGSE sank the Greenpeace ship Rainbow Warrior in Auckland harbor in New Zealand, killing a photographer,  in a state-sponsored terrorist operation.

It is clear that Fuller, who has been largely absent from corporate media reports on the Boston Marathon bombing, has long been an interlocutor, along with CIA director John O. Brennan, with radical Islamist guerrilla forces and terrorists who are used to carry out proxy terrorist attacks on behalf of the CIA. In the 1980s, those attacks were directed against Syria and they continue to this day.



Wayne Madsen Report – On the Trail of the Assassins, Dallas

November 22-24, 2013 – On the Trail of the Assassins, Dallas

After driving some eight hours from New Orleans, WMR’s “On the Trail of the Assassins” series of reports finally brings us to Dallas. Some of the Mafia- and CIA-linked gunmen who participated fifty years ago in the assassination of President Kennedy on November 22, 1963 took this same route by car, although their trip likely took longer, considering the fact that the Interstate highway system was still in its infancy.

After purchasing their sniper rifles from a gun store in Slidell, Louisiana, the assassins, who had begun their trip in Miami, passed through Tampa where they received cash from mob boss Santo Trafficante, Jr., traveled through New Orleans under the protection and with the support of New Orleans mob boss Carlos Marcello, and on to Dallas.

According to a former CIA operative who now lives in Houston, on the night of November 21, 1963, the mob snipers, local mob bagman and night club owner Jack Ruby, CIA  and FBI informant Lee Harvey Oswald, CIA embedded Dallas “policeman” J. D. Tippit, CIA agent E. Howard Hunt, and a few other conspirators representing the mob and a rogue element of the CIA met at Campisi’s Egyptian restaurant on Mockingbird Lane, 4.2 miles from Dealey Plaza.

Campisi’s was owned by Joe Campisi, who the present-day manager of the restaurant admitted was a close family and business friend of her uncle Joe Campisi. WMR and a few local Dallas JFK assassination specialists gathered on the evening of November 21 at Campisi’s, which has not changed much in fifty years. Joe Campisi’s niece explained how close her uncle was to Carlos Marcello and made a special point of pointing out the round table in the back of the restaurant where she said Jack Ruby dined fifty years ago to the very night. Now sitting under a large portrait of Joe Campisi, the table sits against the back wall of the restaurant, near the kitchen and rear exit. Anyone entering the restaurant through the padded red door would have been immediately seen by Ruby and Joe Campisi, allowing them to either monitor all the activity in the dining room or make a hasty exit out of the back door.

Campisi’s niece explained how Marcello, like all Sicilian crime families, were just trying to make it in the United States amid all the anti-Italian and anti-immigrant pressures of their era. She did not know, or was not willing to say, who joined Ruby at the special “round table” the night of November 21, 1963.

One thing is clear. The gunmen who drove from Tampa through New Orleans to Dallas spent some of their time at fine dining establishments. We previously described their visit to the Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City in Tampa where they mere met by Trafficante, who was a silent partner in the restaurant’s operation. While in New Orleans, the assassins met with Marcello. Although it is not known where they ate, the Campisi restauranteurs originated in New Orleans before moving to Dallas and the Marcello and Campisi mob families had connections to some of the finer restaurants in the city. In Dallas, the assassins capped off their mission by eating at Campisi’s, which serves traditional (and very good) Italian fare.

While at Campisi’s, one local area politician described a conversation he once had with Winston Smith [the name is ironic], the son of Jack Ruby’s attorney, Hubert Winston Smith. The younger Smith described how Trafficante had hidden a large cache of gold, made from his various business ventures, including illegal gambling in the United States and legal casinos in Cuba, in a secret underground vault somewhere in Havana. The Tampa-based mob boss moved the gold from Florida to Cuba to keep it from falling into the hands of federal law enforcement who were trying to prosecute Trafficante for racketeering.

After the fall of the Fulgencio Batista regime in Cuba and the coming to power of Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro, Trafficante continued to keep the location of the gold cache in Havana secret. Wen the CIA began planning the Bay of Pigs invasion by the Cuban exile paramilitary Brigade 2506, Trafficante trained is own special team that would accompany Brigade 2506, not to assist in the overthrow of Castro, but to secure the cache of gold and remove it from Cuba. Trafficante placed in charge of the operation his son, who ended up being one of the 4000 killed or wounded among the ranks of the invaders. The Trafficante gold was never secured and, more astounding, according to the story related by Smith, remains hidden in Havana to this day!

After hearing of his son’s death, Trafficante vowed to kill President Kennedy in retribution. One of the CIA team leaders for Brigade 2506 was E. Howard Hunt, who would figure prominently in the assassination of Kennedy and the Watergate break-in.

The Egyptian
Campisi’s Egyptian restaurant on Mockingbird Lane in Dallas. November 21, 1963 saw Jack Ruby, Lee Oswald, J.D. Tippit, and Mafia-hired snipers gather for a final meeting on the eve of the fateful day of the assassination of President Kennedy. Ironically, President Kennedy’s motorcade would pass by Campisi’s on its route from Love Field to Dealey Plaza.

Just as in New Orleans where ex-FBI agent and assassination plotter Guy Banister shared his office building with Fair Play for Cuba Committee FBI informant Lee Oswald, in the shadow of the U.S. Federal Building, the Federal Building annex, which housed the offices of federal law enforcement agencies, had a commanding view of Dealey Plaza and the assassination scene. This photo of the Federal Building across Elm Street is taken from the “Grassy Knoll.”

Bush outside Texas School Book Depository?

This spot in front of the Texas School Book Depository, where the editor is standing, is where CIA operative George H W Bush stood while the shots rang out in Dealey Plaza. Bush [right photo, farthest to the left] is looking directly at the location of President Kennedy’s limousine when he was hit by the gunfire.

Spot on Elm Street [around area of the two adjacent orange cones] where the fatal bullet struck President Kennedy in the front right side of his head. Several people gathered on the evening of November 21. The mayor of Dallas closed the area on November 22 to all but 5000 special ticket holders. Radio host Alex Jones led a protest march against the mayor’s decision as an abridgement of constitutional rights. On the evening of November 21, at around 5:30 pm (CST), the editor witnessed Dallas police arrest one man on Commerce Street across from Dealey Plaza. The man, who appeared to be in his twenties, was carrying an automatic rifle.

Bullet hole in windshield of Lincoln Continental limousine. The Warren Commission suspended all laws of universal physics to support the contention that all the bullets fired came from Oswald’s cheap male-order bolt-action rifle from the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository.

Two reflections on Dealay Plaza. The assassination area — te School Book Depository, the Grassy Knoll, the Dal-Tex building where another sniper’s nest was reportedly located, the railroad overpass, and, to the editor’s surprise, the Dallas Federal Building, are all in close proximity to one another. The spot where Abraham Zapruder took the video of the President being hit was only 165 feet from the limousine. It has often been said that President Kennedy was caught in a “turkey shoot.” In the case of Dealey Plaza, the shooting took place in a virtual cage.

Talk Radio AM640 presents

A Conspiracy Culture Special Event


- A Survivor’s Tale -

Lecture, Q&A, Meet & Greet and Book Signing


Cathy O’Brien and Mark Phillips


Trance: Formation of America

Access Denied: For Reasons of National Security



Actress / Comedienne / Activist

On August 3rd, 1977 the 95th US Congress opened hearings into the reported abuses concerning the CIA’s TOP SECRET mind control research program code named MK-Ultra. On February 8th, 1988, a top-level MK-Ultra victim, Cathy O’Brien, was covertly rescued from her mind control enslavement by Intelligence insider Mark Phillips. Their seven year pursuit of justice was stopped for reasons of national security.

Cathy O’Brien is the only vocal and recovered survivor of the Central Intelligence Agency’s MK-Ultra Project Monarch operation. Tracing her path from child pornography and recruitment into the program to serving as a top-level intelligence agent and White House sex slave, her story is a definitive eye-witness account of government corruption that implicates some of the most prominent figures in global politics.

Cathy’s words strike deep in the heart of the beast and reveal the cruel, murderous world of mind control in all of its ugly facets, exposing many famous people, particularly in the high-flying worlds of politics and music. Cathy’s recall is so well articulated that even the most skeptical minds will be forced to recognize that MK-Ultra Monarch Mind Control is not a theory, but an ugly reality.

This is a story you wished were not true.

It will change the way you look at the world forever.


Cathy O’Brien is a fully rehabilitated United States Government White House / Pentagon level mind control survivor whose testimony for the US Congressional Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Oversight was censored for so-called “reasons of national security”. Upon the advice of an attorney in 1995, this testimony was released en masse in book form, aptly entitled TRANCE Formation of America, to bring truth to light and survive whistle blowing on US Government tortures. Despite media censorship, death threats and attempts, these proven, documented facts have now reached over forty-eight countries, been licensed and translated into eight different languages, and are in major universities worldwide such as the Oxford Law Library.
Mark Phillips is a native of Nashville, Tennessee. For nearly 30 years he was a highly successful marketing & advertising executive for two airlines and a medical equipment manufacturing company. While he lacks the published academic credentials as a scholar, professional writer, or mental health physician he is recognized internationally by mental health and law enforcement as a credible authority on the secret science concerning external control of the mind. Throughout his career he also held a DoD issued Top Secret Security clearance as he was exposed to various classified behavioral modification projects. Mark was required to sign an oath of secrecy. To this day he’s restricted by sedition laws from revealing certain specific still classified details that directly relates to his employment.
Roseanne Barr is an outspoken, award-winning actress and comedienne who has never shied away from controversial issues, even if that meant being unpopular or being labelled “nuts” by the mainstream media. She is one of the very few people in Hollywood who dares to speak about its darkest secret… mind control.

Roseanne will be speaking about the shadowy side of the entertainment industry and how MK-ULTRA has had a major role in shaping Hollywood.

In addition to being a champion for the rights of abused children everywhere, Roseanne has also been treated for Dissociative Identity Disorder recovery. You’ll want to hear what she has to say.

Cathy, Mark and Roseanne will be taking part in the question and answer period – and signing autographs – after the lecture. Copies of ‘Trance Formation of America’ and ‘Access Denied’ will be available at the event.
