A four-establishment model for western politics and the dominant Kissinger-CIA alliance
"[Katharine Graham] of the permanent establishment never lost sight of the fact that societies thrive not by the
victories of their factions but by their ultimate reconciliations."
July 23, 2001, Henry Kissinger, Eulogy for Katharine Graham of the Washington Post.
"One-third of modern history is still classified* ... [An] intelligence officer turned art teacher ... displayed a color
slide of an abstract sculpture. The piece was over six feet tall, of metal branches all intertwined... It was, to all
appearances, a random column of ugliness. Hardly the model for a book. "Don't look at the sculpture itself," our
friend advised. "Look at the holes." Inside the twisted sculpture was an orderly pattern of smooth ovals, arranged in
perfect balance, making sense of the whole...
"Known history is like the visible surface of the sculpture, a series of harsh, twisted, seemingly unconnected
branches. The hidden parts of history, the covert sides, are more orderly and rational, but can be seen and
understood only if you are told where to look. The holes in history are what makes sense of the thing; the hidden
motives, secret agendas, classified purposes... "

considered a respectable author. However, nothing is ever as it seems, as is being implied by his own
Turns out, Loftus has been founding president of the Intelligence Summit, a rather notorious anti-Arab
propaganda outfit with ties to the CIA, military, Mossad and British intelligence. Even James Woolsey and
John Deutch, two former CIA directors, were on the board until the summit's main financier was reported to
have ties to the Russian mob. Not that these directors didn't have any clue - I could have predicted those
ties. On top of that, Woolsey is considered part of the group that is directing the activities of exiled Russian
oligarchs as Boris Berezovsky against Putin's Russia. Both these oligarchs and the Russian mob ran

The standard model of politics and its limitations
Four-establishment model of western politics
- Liberal Establishment (State Department)
- Conservative Establishment (CIA and Pentagon)
- Vatican-Paneuropa network (Opus Dei and Knights of Malta)
- Zionist Establishment (Israel and its worldwide communities and U.S. lobby)

The bottom line
The standard model of politics and its limitations
There are different ways to look at the world when it comes to politics. In western countries we
tend to look at the various political parties, the elected heads of state, the secretaries and their
interactions with parliament and the public. We shouldn't forget the role of the media, which
actually serves a purpose besides entertainment: its most important function is
Some documents first published by ISGP.
to act as a fourth pillar to the Trias Politica, a reference
to the separation of the legislative, executive, and
judicial branches in many western governments. The
media's primary role are to help act as a guardian to the
democratic process. If the government has been
corrupted, or outside forces try to influence the
democratic process in any unfair way, the idea is that
there are always untainted media outlets that can
investigate and inform the public about it.
After the internal political makeup of a country has been
analyzed, including the fact whether or not it has a free
media and fair elections, it is generally time to look at
the country's external
relations. Every country on the planet maintains political, economic and/or military relationships
with other countries. These relations can be good, bad or anything in between. Over the course of
the 20th century, and especially since the end of World War II, these one-on-one or small-circle
relations have increasingly been replaced by international institutes where many countries are
represented at the same time. Well known examples of these international institutes include the
United Nations, the European Union, NATO and the G8 meetings. Specifically on the economic
front there are the World Bank, the IMF, the OECD and the World Trade Organization. Through
all these organizations countries in the West and around the world try to work out their political,
military and economic issues.
However, sometimes events happen in Western countries that cannot be explained by this
standard model. Senior officials of the BCCI bank and police investigators being intimidated by
a CIA-Mossad-related "black network", Belgian officials gathering information on a similar
"nebula", or Daniel Casolaro committing suicide while investigating another similar "Octopus"
fall into that category. Basically, the hundreds of unusual deaths this author has come across over
the years can be considered a mystery, because not one of them has ever been proven to be
government related - even though that's often where all the evidence is pointing towards. My
own experiences related to intimidation can be considered outside of the standard political
model, because my research was essentially focused on non-government organizations. Most
important maybe, anybody who has spent at least a few hundred hours looking into the Kennedy
assassination, the Dutroux affair in Belgium, or 9/11 can see that there is overwhelming evidence
that not all is exactly like the media or our school books are portraying these events to be -
however hard it may be for the average person to put in the necessary study hours and to accept
the somewhat paradigm-shattering conclusions and social awkwardness associated with these
topics. The fact is that there really are powerful elites who are able to carry out conspiracies like
these and get away with them. Unfortunately, no (intellectual or complete) political model exists
to explain these events, and no one has come up with a good explanation why both the
mainstream and conspiracy media continue to distort the truth to such extremes.
This last aspect is rather obvious: counter-intelligence. The conspiracy community is clearly
treated in similar fashion as J. Edgar Hoover handled the U.S. Communist Party during the Cold
War: massive infiltration from top to bottom with 1,500 FBI agents and informants.  This was
done with little noble intention, however. Hoover was a notorious, inflexible red-baiter with
friends as Senator Joseph McCarthy and the notorious CIA-connected Murchison family. 
Already in a 1945 memorandum President Truman warned about Hoover's intentions: "We want
no Gestapo or Secret Police. F.B.I. is tending in that direction. They are dabbling in sex life
scandals and plain blackmail when they should be catching criminals."  It is well known that
in later years Hoover was highly interested in cataloging the sexual adventures of John F.
Kennedy while hating his brother Bobby for publicly revealing the existence of the mafia. 
For decades Hoover had paid absolutely zero attention to the Cosa Nostra , despite having
been seen with senior members at Murchison's Hotel del Charro and the nearby race tracks. 
Unsurprisingly, Bobby considered Hoover "dangerous" and "rather a psycho" - hardly an
exaggerated description of the FBI's character considering his behaviour towards Martin Luther
King and his total insensitivity to the murder of John F. Kennedy.  The CIA, under the
guidance of counter-intelligence chief James Angleton, had a similar mindset as Hoover - and
both ran extensive domestic operations against anti-Vietnam War protestors.  There's little
evidence of a mindset change after Hoover's death in 1972 (he headed the bureau from 1935 to
1972). Looking at the board of a consulting company as ExecutiveAction, LLC (a CIA term for
assassination) and its equally shady sibling, GlobalOptions, we find two different CIA and two
different FBI directors.  The firms themselves were established by the ultraright American
Security Council board member Neil Livingstone, a former Israeli desk CIA recruit of James
Angleton.  Other former directors of the FBI and CIA can also be found at overlapping think
tanks and corporations.
Hoover (FBI), Angleton (CIA), the American Security Council and corporations as GlobalOptions and ExecutiveAction, LLC: very
little difference and historically opposed to civil rights and anti-war movements. A former co-author of Neil Livingstone, the founder
of GlobalOptions and ExecutiveAction, LLC, as well as a recruit of Angleton and a leading ASC member, has been a columnist for
the conspiracy site Rense for a decade now and was also among the founders of a 9/11 truth group  - just the tiniest of
examples that the conspiracy community is not left to operate on its own.
Seeing how serious intelligence agencies have always taken any left wing threat, from anti-war
to anti-nuclear energy protestors, we can only imagine how serious they take the threat of a
conspiracy community digging into their sordid affairs. Conveniently, a conspiracy community
is a major potential source of manipulation by foreign powers, so controlling it from top to
bottom is probably, somewhere, semi-legal. On various locations on this site evidence of this
control is discussed.
As for the new political model, it turns out that over the course of the 20th century, and
especially after World War II, a massive amount of private think tanks and social clubs have
been set up, much of it financed by a rather small group of banks, multinationals and foundations
- and sometimes aided by membership fees and limited government subsidies. This website has
spent almost ten years crawling through these networks, in the process gathering and
categorizing the names of hundreds of private groups. Some of these groups are focused on
economic integration; others more on sustainable development, domestic policy, foreign policy,
diplomatic relations or national security. And what they have in common is that no one has
learned about them at school. No studies have been conducted into these groups.
There's always the question how much influence the men running this private network (a small
group dominates) have, because, frankly, there's almost no testimony from senior government
officials to what extent they listen and implement the advise of these men. All of sudden grown
men start giggling like little girls and shrugging off questions in case these topics come up.
Bilderberg is really a great example. The group is closely linked to the Netherlands, because of
the role of the Dutch royal family in it. Despite the fact that the group once every few years made
the news, before the age of the internet few Dutch people had really ever heard about it, even
though the group has met annually since 1952. Here's what a foreign policy expert of a long-
serving member of Dutch parliament explained about Bilderberg:
"To be honest, little can be said with certainty about the way Bilderberg influences
[politics]. ... Members of the government go there - the queen and one or two ministers –
[but] no report is provided to congress. …
"Besides [Harry] van Bommel there are NO members of congress who have asked formal
questions. ... As far as I know, the topic has never been discussed in the past 8,5 years
[that I've been here]."
At one point van Bommel brought up the question of Bilderberg in an informal manner. The only
result was that his questions were laughed off by the state secretary for European affairs, Frans
Timmermans, a visitor of Bilderberg meetings. Isn't that amazing? What is wrong with questions
about what has been discussed at these meetings? Apparently there in an unwritten rule in Dutch
parliament not to discuss these groups. And judging from U.S. congressional records, the
Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission have never been part of the daily
discourse either. Why not? There's actually only one obvious answer that everybody already
knows: influence is coming from these groups. There are actually very, very few instances in
which this influence has been clearly documented, because, for some reason, the media and
politicians are just never willing to address the issue.
But in one of those instances the influence of the European Round Table was described, a group
with very close links to Bilderberg. On June 23, 2003, the Belgian Jan Puype, the only
independent journalist who appears to have attended a meeting of the ERT, at least until that
point, wrote about one of the council's meetings that year which was attended by Romano Prodi,
a prime minister of Italy from 1996 to 1998 and again from 2006 to 2008. At the time he visited
the ERT, Prodi was president of the European Commission, a position he held from 1999 to
2004. It appears Prodi was groomed by the liberal establishment: as a political science professor
at the University of Bologna, as he had been a member of the Bilderberg steering committee in
1981-1982 period. And according to Puype, Prodi was still influenced by these business elites in
"I was a guest at the birthday party of the ERT, which existed 20 years in 2003. That gave
a surreal feeling. I was the only journalist and walked between De Benedetti, Davignon
[chairman of Bilderberg], Leysen, Prodi. 'What am I doing here for God's sake', was I
thinking. But it was very interesting to see how things were done, of course...
"I thought I was hallucinating [when Gerhard Cromme of ThyssenKrupp and the CFR
began to speak]. Prodi was put in his place like a little child [for having criticized the
United States]. It became even more remarkable when the Commission chairman started
to speak himself. He held a speech like 'friends, I will not do it again and I will be good
from now on'. A completely different Prodi then the man I saw on television raising his
finger in the air against the Americans.
"You can't say that the ERT decides everything that happens in Europe, but her influence
is enormous... The ERT has a very efficient way of lobbying. The members write papers on
the direction Europe should be going in terms of the environment, competition,
technology, etc. Once these papers are finished inside the ERT, the machine starts
running. The club sends out a team of delegates consisting of the most important members
to the European Commission. Individual members take the messages to their national
governments. The ERT thinks very pro-active. She is often the first to work on certain
issues. That is also her strength. The introduction of the single currency, the Maastricht-
Treaty, the Channel Tunnel, or the [EU's] expansion to the east: that all started at the
The European Round Table was ultimately sponsored by David Rockefeller and his closest
friends, Etienne Davignon and Pehr Gyllenhammar. A decade earlier this Rockefeller group
established the Trilateral Commission, with its more blatant display of government influence.
Within a year the leadership of this joint U.S.-Japan-E.U. private group organized its first
meeting at the White House with President Gerald Ford, an effort aided by the fact that David's
older brother, Nelson Rockefeller, was vice president at the time. Several years later they began
grooming Jimmy Carter, which drew a lot of attention to the group when Carter was elected
president and stacked his administration with Trilateral Commission members. Just because the
John Birch Society has been about the only news outlet to take notice over a longer period of
time, doesn't mean that the commission doesn't have an enormous amount of influence. Related
to the Trilateral Commission there is the much older Council on Foreign Relations, with its deep
ties to the State Department. The CFR's interest in holding a firm grip over State Department
policy was once again confirmed by Hillary Clinton in recent years when she joked (all over
"It's good to have an outpost of the council right here down in the street of the State
Department. We get a lot of advise from the council, so this will mean I don't have as far
to go to be told what we should be doing and how we should think about the future."
The first thing that should be obvious to any investigator of this network is that the backgrounds
and political, economic and religious ideas of people attending these groups

the White House, with David Rockefeller,
Zbigniew Brzezinski, Elliot Richardson,

president of the revived Mitsubishi zaibatsu.
are too similar to not conclude that groups as Bilderberg, the
Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission
represent the ultimate form of capital cronyism. Basically
everyone here has promoted privatization, deregulation and
further political and economic integration as the solution to
every problem in the world. They are all great supporters of
the United Nations. They all warn against the dangers of
global warming. During the Cold War the vast majority were
staunch supporters of containment and détente. A similar
amount campaigned against Strategic Defense Initiative, the
space shield against Russian ICBMs, during the Reagan
administration. And the list goes. Of course,
it's possible to nitpick and find a few examples of disagreement among members on how to reach
certain objectives. These differences will always be there, as long as there are people. It doesn't
mean, however, that there's not a powerful network with largely similar-minded persons.
The Council on Foreign Relations, Bilderberg, the Trilateral Commission and even the European
Round Table are relatively well-known these days. It actually seems to have been on the agenda
to give so much attention to these groups from conspiratorial Christian conservative and racist,
anti-Semitic sources that it has become impossible for a well-respected person to even utter the
names Rockefeller, Rothschild or any of these groups - which is a definite problem when
discussing a number of important conspiracies. Bring up these names and many people will
automatically roll their eyes and lose interest.
That having been said, there are dozens and dozens of other private groups that should be
investigated. In November 2010 I actually asked about one these to members of congress and
party leaders in the United States, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Belgium and France. This
group's name is Le Cercle, established at almost the same time as the neoliberal Bilderberg
group, and is deeply tied to Opus Dei, the Knights of Malta, the CIA and illegal black operations
of every possible kind imaginable. As expected, every single member of congress, in whatever
country, denied knowing anything about the group - which could well be true in most cases for
this site is the first to write extensively about Le Cercle and to have published actual
documentation. Equally peculiar, not one member showed signs of having any interest in this
group. Strange. Isn't it the job of congressmen to protect the interests of the people they
represent? There was one exception, however. After acknowledging never to have heard about
Le Cercle, the previously-mentioned foreign policy assistant to a long-sitting socialist member of
"Too little concrete information is available about [Le Cercle and hundreds of] other
organizations besides Bilderberg to be used in parliamentary sessions. ... [Our party] is
focused on formal political relations … With your question we enter the extra-
parliamentary domain of parapolitics; informal, non-public organizations in which
influence-forming is practiced, often by persons in influential government positions and/or
from the corporate world who together make political decisions without oversight."
One of these groups might well have been the Dutch Republican Society to whom his friend and
sole Bilderberg critic Harry van Bommel belongs, together with a small army of anti-Bilderberg
and anti-House of Orange conspiracy authors, as well as the assassinated Pim Fortuyn and some
of his closest associates. It shouldn't surprise anyone if it one day turns out that all these men
were working for Dutch intelligence, much in the same way that the John Birch Society and
Liberty Lobby in the United States appear to be fronts for the CIA and State Department to
control opposition groups. The secretive Cercle group may one day actually prove this claim.
After a number of years of studying these privately-funded groups, several of them came to be
considered as the most important to learn more about. Virtually no information existed about
them back then, while at the same time they gathered many of the most influential men in
business, government, academics and/or national security. Yes, Bilderberg and the Trilateral
Commission are very, very important. But for this site the Anglo-American Pilgrims Society was
selected, because it is has much greater membership, is much older and contains the founders of
the Council on Foreign Relations, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, Bilderberg, the
Trilateral Commission and literally every other private group and government institute
historically associated with the liberal or eastern establishment. The Pilgrims Society also
represents the Anglo-American social network at the core of many of these think tanks and
conferences. The 1001 Club was a very useful addition to the Pilgrims Society, primarily to
identify associates from mainland Europe, as well as some other parts of world.
On the conservative side Le Cercle and the American Security Council have been considered the
most important to study. Both existed throughout the Cold War and still exist today. They
gathered the absolute elite of the Anglo-American national security
establishment, together with questionable associates from
mainland Europe and around the world. It has been an
overwhelmingly ultraconservative network. Still, David
Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger and their closest allies were
always welcome. Why? Almost certainly so they could serve as
observers and representatives of the opposing liberal
establishment that they in turn headed. Not too surprising, it is
exactly groups as Le Cercle and the American Security Council
that the John Birch Society and Liberty Lobby never dared to
ISGP was the first to publish photocopies of membership lists of
the Pilgrims Society, the 1001 Club and Le Cercle. It also
extensively studied the American Security Council and a
number of other groups. Based on the old boy networks that
were discovered and seeing how small circles within these
networks make overtures to one another, while also seeing that
the same men turn up again and again in a variety of (alleged)
conspiracies, an attempt was made to write a new political
model that would explain the existence of various elites, their

involvement in these conspiracies, and how these men successfully get away with them. Details
of the various groups and conspiracy events can be found in different sections on this site.
Four-establishment-model of western politics
1. Liberal Establishment (State Department)
2. Conservative Establishment (CIA and Pentagon)
3. Vatican-Paneuropa network (Opus Dei and Knights of Malta)
4. Zionist Establishment (Israel and its worldwide communities and U.S. Lobby)
The four-establishment model in four pictures:
1. Henry Kissinger and David Rockefeller, the only two persons connected to every aspect
of the international liberal establishment: political, economic, sustainable development
and national security. The State Department is their own private playground. The Anglo-
American Pilgrims Society is key in understanding this establishment.
2. Ted Shackley, one of the top CIA officers who sat on top of the
conservative/defense/military establishment and who used to work for Allen Dulles and
Richard Helms, two Rockefeller friends. As head of JM/WAVE, the most likely person to
have ran the operation to kill John F. Kennedy with cover from earlier-mentioned men
and support from the Zionists (for trying to force inspections of Dimona) and the
Vatican-Paneuropa network (for supporting socialism in Italy and other countries).
3. Lord Jacob Rothschild. Closely allied with David Rockefeller and Henry Kissinger, but at
the same time the family is closely linked to the Israeli leadership, Zionist movements
internationally and Russian oligarchs as Mikhail Khodorkovsky. There's also a definite
tie between the Mossad and various Russian mobs. Rothschild family members also seem
to have limited but key ties to the U.S. national security state. Examples you say? Baron
Edmond de Rothschild at CSIS (once), the chairman of Le Cercle being a Rothschild
employee, Jacob Rothschild at the Blackstone Group (both linked to 9/11), Kissinger and
Rothschild support for Senator John McCain (WACL/ASC background and of the book
Debunking 9/11 Myths), and James Rothschild at Washington D.C.'s Monument Capital
Group with Thomas F. McLarty, III (Kissinger McLarty), Frank Carlucci (CIA) and Jim
Baker (State Department). Jacob Rothschild was an important business partner of two
men deeply implicated in the Haut de la Garenne child abuse scandal, but basically all the
people here have close indirect ties to such scandals.
4. Otto von Habsburg, central player in the Vatican-Paneuropa network consisting of Opus
Dei members and Knights of Malta. Allied with Shackley et al through the secretive
Cercle group. Not particularly fond of Zionism. Equally linked to child abuse scandals as
1. Liberal Establishment:
1. Centered around international banking and commerce. One hundred percent
committed to the globalization process in every possible way. Involved in
hundreds of NGOs. The "big three" foundations, Carnegie, Rockefeller and Ford,
belong to this establishment.
2. East Coast Establishment plus West Coast Establishment, globalist-oriented,
mainly non-Catholic elements in Europe, and similar elements in Asia.
3. Most key players in the world have been accepted at one point or another to the
international advisory committee of JPMorgan Chase or the board of Kissinger
Associates. Bechtel is at the core of the West Coast Establishment and closely
linked to the Rockefellers and JPMorgan Chase, most recently through men as
George Shultz and Riley Bechtel.
4. Inner core in the United States: David Rockefeller and friends as Maurice
Greenberg, Peter Peterson, John Whitehead, Warren Buffet, and Paul Volcker.
Kissinger Associates people are always brought in as overseers and/or observers
of CIA and neocon projects. Completely interlocked with the Rockefeller interests
is the George Shultz/Bechtel/Bohemian Grove group on the West Coast. In
England and France the Rothschilds are major allies. Other key figures, like Lord
Roll, Lord Carrington, Etienne Davignon or Pehr Gyllenhammar have all been at
Kissinger Associates. Most of the men mentioned here have belonged to the
Anglo-American Pilgrims Society or otherwise the 1001 Club.
5. Direct control of the following media outlets through a network of friends: New
York Times, Washington Post, Newsweek, Time magazine, CBS, ABC, NBC and
CNN. These companies are all owned by Pilgrims Society members or a few of
their closest friends. In England The Times, the Financial Times and Reuters are
among those linked to the Pilgrims.
6. Complete State Department control through the Council on Foreign Relations and
the social network of the Pilgrims Society. Right-wing (corporate fascist in the
end), but diplomatic.
7. Pro-containment (Kennan) and pro-detente (Kissinger) during the Cold War.
8. Has been overwhelmingly anti-"preventive war", anti-"rollback" and anti-SDI
(Star Wars) during the Cold War.
9. Completely pro-Arab due to oil interests. Only supports a moderate foreign policy
of Israel towards the Palestinians and other Arab neighbors.
10. Pro-Afghanistan invasion in 2001, but mostly anti-Iraq invasion in 2003.
Preferred containment of Saddam Hussein.
11. Completely, one hundred percent Anglophile, even for the few intelligence-
connected core players who have worked with radical Zionists, like James
Woolsey, George Shultz, Alexander Haig, Paul Nitze, etc. The Pilgrims Society
alone can easily prove this.
12. One hundred percent committed to the theory of catastrophic global warming.
Again, even for the handful of Anglophile, pro-Zionist conservatives as James
Woolsey and George Shultz.
13. Conspiracy outlets as the Disclosure Project and those related to it are controlled
by this establishment and used to promote world peace, sustainable development
and a Gaia-type United Nations religion to people considered the most susceptible
to it - and in addition to keep SDI ("space-based weapons") from being revived.
Daniel Sheehan, a close friend of the Rockefellers and many other Pilgrims
Society members, has played a key role in this aspect of the globalization process.
He had earlier been "unleashed" to help curb CIA influence in the Oval Office.
14. Consists of the internationalist "Rockefeller Republican" wing in the Republican
Party, as well as the Democratic Party, certainly by the time Jimmy Carter took
office, making the Republican vs Democrat debate largely a non-issue. Favorite
presidents: Eisenhower, Ford, Carter, Clinton and Obama. Nixon was turned on to
Kissinger's detente politics, leaving conservatives, including Kissinger's old
mentor, Fritz Kraemer, completely disillusioned with him. Bush 41 was also
15. The British Conservative Party - The Tories - is the party of the royalist ruling
class in Great Britain that has historically been allied with the (liberal) Eastern
Establishment in the United States. The Pilgrims Society is clear evidence of that.
Some leading pro-E.U. conservatives go to Bilderberg, but the liberal
establishment is also forced to work with non-establishment elements in the
Labour and Liberal parties. Tony Blair joining the international advisory council
of JPMorgan Chase in 2008 and even becoming chairman in 2010 is a good
example of that. There's also traditionally been a ultra-right-wing within the
conservative party which disagreed with detente and cooperated with the
Conservative Establishment in the United States during the Cold War. Evidence
of that can be seen in groups as Le Cercle.
16. Some key names from Canada, a country belonging to the British
Commonwealth, are the Bronfmans, the Desmarais family, Conrad Black of
Hollinger, Maurice Strong and former prime minister Brian Mulroney. Black and
Strong were members of the 1001 Club. Andre Desmarais and Brian Mulroney
have served on the international council of JP Morgan Chase, while Mulroney
could also be found at Blackstone, joining at the same time as Jacob Rothschild.
17. In Japan the Liberal Establishment is allied with the Liberal Democratic Party
(considered conservative), controlled from front to back by former Black Dragon
Society terrorists and yakuza elements released in December 1948 by MacArthur
as part of a "Christmas amnesty" for rather obvious war criminals. One of the key
ones, the billionaire Ryoichi Sasakawa, teamed up with Pilgrims as William
Draper, Henry Kissinger and Angier Biddle Duke in the U.S.-Japan Foundation in
1980. Previous to that the Rockefeller group forged links with the old Mitsubishi
zaibatsu when the Trilateral Commission was founded. These zaibatsu had been
pushed aside by the Black Dragon Society and Dark Ocean Society groups in the
run-up to World War II. Sasakawa's political ally in controlling the Liberal
Democratic Party and the yakuza, Yoshio Kodama, had been a member of them.
Both men allied themselves with the Moonie Cult against communism in the
1960s, with Kodama also becoming a CIA and Lockheed agent. Make no mistake,
these men were deeply fascist and considered the leading "kuromaku" - powers
behind the throne - in Japanese society.
18. The 1001 Club is one group that shows the Liberal Establishment maintained
close ties to Mobutu Sese Seko in the Congo, the Shah in Iran and Suharto in
2. Conservative Establishment:
1. Centered around the Pentagon and CIA, certainly after the Richard Helms period.
2. Grew out an alliance of General Douglas MacArthur's notoriously racist cronies,
generals del Valle, Fellers, Willoughby, Wedemeyer, Stratemeyer and Wood.
They were backed by H.L. Hunt, Clint Murchison and Sid Richardson, and J.
Edgar Hoover was an ally. Together they attacked Eisenhower (a former Pilgrims
Society executive) and the East Coast Establishment for being too soft on
communism. Among the groups these supporters of MacArthur ran during the
Eisenhower years were the National Military Industrial Conferences, hence
Eisenhower's expression "Military-Industrial Complex", although he also termed
it the "military establishment" and "defense establishment" in the same speech.
3. This group founded the John Birch Society and even the highly anti-Jewish
Liberty Lobby (Stratemeyer; del Valle), responsible today for 95 percent of
people's anti-establishment theories, including anti-United Nations, anti-Kissinger
and anti-Rockefeller propaganda.
4. Undiplomatic. Ultra-right-wing McCarthyites and Christian conservatives from
different denominations. A combination of the isolationist old right, the
interventionist new right, as well as the religious right (Pat Robertson, Jerry
5. Allied with the Vatican-Paneuropa network in Europe, consisting of Opus Dei and
the Knights of Malta.
6. Teamed up with South Korean interests, including the MacArthur-released Sun
Myung Moon and his Moonie Cult.
7. Began working with the Israel Lobby in the United States in the 1970s, forming
8. Anti-containment, anti-detente and pro-SDI (Star Wars) during the Cold War.
Richard Perle (Le Cercle), who was working for Senator Henry Jackson and
basically elements in the CIA, was the leader of the anti-detente campaign.
General Daniel Graham (American Security Council) was head of the pro-SDI
9. Anti-United Nations and anti-global warming theories.
10. Consists of intelligence assets and the (often fringe) ultra-right-wing of the
Republican Party, as well as a handful of hawks from the Democratic Party.
Important examples of this latter case are Senator Henry Jackson, from whose
office sprang a small army of leading neocons; "Good Time" Charlie Wilson, also
nicknamed "the Israeli commando", and two co-chairman of the American
Security Council: William V. Chappell, Jr. and Senator J. Bennett Johnston.
11. Some favorite presidential candidates: Senator Robert Taft, General Douglas
MacArthur, George Wallace, Barry Goldwater and Nixon before he was turned on
to the policy of detente by Kissinger and Rockefeller. Only when Reagan was
elected, did the conservative establishment have the president they really wanted.
A favorable election again happened in 2000 when George W. Bush moved into
the White House, flanked by the neocons. A later favorite of the conservative
establishment has been Rudolph Giuliani, former mayor of New York City, with
McCain being acceptable - but primarily being favored by the "liberal"
12. Formed action groups to circumvent the State Department's monopoly on
international diplomacy, like the International Security Council, funded by the
Moonie Cult. Also tried to infiltrate the State Department, as was attempted
during the Reagan years with Perle's Madison Group.
13. Key "insider" groups: American Security Council, its post-Cold War incarnation,
the Center for Security Policy and Le Cercle for Vatican-Paneuropa relations.
14. Seems to be have been controlled by the CIA at the very top, because
MacArthur's generals and persons as Curtis LeMay and other confrontationist
"Project Control" supporters at the American Security Council were subordinate
to less radical CIA officers they shared their board with: Richard Bissell, James
Angleton, Ray Cline, Vernon Walters, William Colby (Le Cercle), William Casey
(Le Cercle), Ted Shackley (Le Cercle). These officers in turn worked closely with
Allen Dulles, Richard Helms, Frank Carlucci, Donald Gregg, Robert Gates and
George H. W. Bush.
15. A key person in turning the conservative establishment neocon has been Senator
Henry Jackson, who, back in 1973, worked with Ted Shackley and other CIA
officers in covering up CIA abuses investigated by the Church Committee.
Jackson helped establish the America-Israeli Friendship League in 1971 (with
Nelson Rockefeller) and the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs
(Cheney, Perle, Feith, Woolsey, etc.) in 1973. He also participated in the CIA-
MI6-Mossad Jonathan Conferences. In addition to this it was he who ran a Zionist
fifth column in his Senate office, from which sprang names as Richard Perle, Paul
Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, Elliott Abrams, Richard Pipes and Frank Gaffney, the
latter the founder of the Center for Security Policy in 1988, a pro-Zionist, post
Cold War continuation of the American Security Council.
16. The persons the American Security Council liaised with during the Cold War
shows the ruthlessness of the people in this establishment: Roberto Alejos Arzu
(tied to an international child abuse ring), Colonel Enrique Bermudez (controlled Danilo Blandon,
who started the famous CIA crack cocaine epidemic in the U.S. by selling his cocaine to Ricky Ross),
Roberto D'Aubuisson, Stedman Fagoth and Mario Sandoval were among the
worst CIA-linked death squad leaders, sometimes also implicated in large scale
child or cocaine trafficking. In Africa relations were maintained with Jonas
Savimbi of UNITA, who is known to have thrown at least several families in
bonfires, and General Christoffel van der Westhuizen, who ordered assassinations
on anti-apartheid black ANC leaders and later on was South Africa's mastermind
behind the mysterious "third force" that used terrorism and propaganda to try and
create a civil war among blacks. Le Cercle had similar associations.
17. Furthermore, the ASC had several prominent officers who were directors of
Wackenhut, the enigmatic private security firm with its "rumored" CIA links. In
contrast to Bechtel, Wackenhut forged no visible links with the Eastern
Establishment. Early members were McCarthyites and MacArthur supporters.
Cheri Seymour in The Last Circle found evidence that Wackenhut had been
involved in highly secret bacteriological warfare research and suspected - like I
am also inclined to do - a connection with MacArthur's release of Unit 731
scientists at the end of World War II. Having seen Wackenhut turn up in close
proximity of Belgian Dutroux scandal (closely linked to MacArthur II) and
underground fascist armies, I suspect we haven't even touched the surface yet of
some of the projects of this company.
18. Also at the ASC was the long-time chairman of Air America and Air Asia,
Admiral Felix B. Stump, airlines used by the CIA for drug trafficking. In 1975,
three years after Stump had died, Air Asia was bought by the secretive high
technology firm E-Systems, also linked to drug trafficking, as well as a number of
suspicious deaths. Former CIA director William Raborn, also a director of
Wackenhut, served on the board of E-Systems from 1970 until his death in 1990.
E-Systems was bought by Raytheon in 1995. Since 1998 former CIA director
John M. Deutch has been serving on the board of that company. Deutch may not
be entirely disconnected from the events of 9/11.
19. It still seems that these CIA officers linked to the defense establishment have been
playing second fiddle to the State Department and the liberal establishment. With
both the Reagan and Bush 43 administration it is important to note that George
Shultz, a Rockefeller and Bechtel protege, formed the counterweight to these
conservative establishments. During the vetting of Bush 43 for president he
brought along Condoleezza Rice, Bush's secretary of state, who had been his
protege at Stanford, the Hoover Institution, Chevron, JPMorgan Chase,
Transamerica and the Charles Schwab Corporation. During the Reagan
administration it were secretary of state Shultz, undersecretary of state Whitehead,
a close friend of David Rockefeller, and Caspar Weinberger at the Defense
Department - all three later Pilgrims Society members - who used their media
network to allow Iran-Contra to be exposed. They even had their buddy Daniel
Sheehan go after the drugs-for-arms network of Ted Shackley, but really only in
the conspiracy media where Sheehan has moved since then.
3. Vatican-Paneuropa Network:
1. Catholic European branch of the conservative establishment which had
considerable overlap with the American Security Council and completely
supported the ASC's anti-detente and pro-SDI policy.
2. Ultra-right-wing. Knights of Malta and Opus Dei-dominated network.
3. Key founder of many groups has been Otto von Habsburg, the last crown prince
of the Vatican-allied Austro Hungarian Empire.
4. Its primary interest has been the resurrection of the Holy Roman Empire by
manipulating the European Union, although this agenda has met with stiff
resistance from the Liberal Establishment.
5. Le Cercle is the most secretive and highest level group in this network. It works
with the CIA, MI6 and intelligence services of mainland Europe and Saudi
Arabia. In the past it worked with apartheid governments in Africa and fascist
regimes as Franco and Pinochet. Members have overseen underground fascist
armies in Europe that were used for false-flag terrorism, assassination, drug
running, arms smuggling and the protection of high-level child abuse
networks.The primary contact points in the United States of Le Cercle have been
the Heritage Foundation and the CIA. Ted Shackley has been a key contact of Le
Cercle since the early 1980s until his death in 2002. He worked together with
Richard Perle and Britain's aristocratic super spook Julian Amery, who moved in
aristocratic circles involving the Rothschilds, the Cecils (also of Le Cercle) and
active and retired prime ministers.
6. Notoriously anti-Jewish, as Otto von Habsburg's November 2002 statement to the
Austrian weekly Zur Zeit made perfectly clear: "The Pentagon is today a Jewish
institution. On the other hand, the blacks are in the State Department: for
instance, Colin Powell or especially Condoleezza Rice. It is an internal conflict
between hawks and doves. Currently, the Anglo-Saxons, that's to say the white
Americans, are playing a relatively minor role." Not surprising, just about the
only neocons ever invited to Le Cercle were Richard Perle and Jeane Kirkpatrick.
4. Zionist Establishment (individual groups):
1. Built primarily around radical Jewish Zionists, not just American
neoconservatives, but also the Israelis.
2. Consists of Israel, Jewish communities around the world and the Israel Lobby in
the United States. It's a very close-knit and survivalist community that is highly
3. Some key names who have worked closely with Israel and/or the Mossad:
Bronfman, Rothschild, Oppenheimer, Maurice Tempelsman, Felix Przedborski,
Bruce Rappaport, Edmond Safra, Max Fisher, Tibor Rosenbaum, Louis
Bloomfield, Michael Cherney and John Loftus. Those with Israeli nationality tied
to illegal operations include Begin, Sharon, Isser Harel, Shaul Eisenberg, Al
Schwimmer, Yaakov Nimrodi, Rafi Eitan, Efraim Poran, Abrahim Shavit, Yair
Klein, David Kimche, Micha Harari and others. Probably wouldn't skip
4. The Mossad seems to operate in just about all Jewish communities around the
world and certainly helped set up Israel's "triangle of influence" in the United
States in cooperation with AIPAC and CPMAJO. It became so powerful because
the Jewish people have a direct and continuing interest in being politically active.
They have a tendency to follow their community leaders and vote in (relatively)
much greater numbers than other ethnic groups. At least, this was the explanation
given to Douglas MacArthur II once by the chairman of an Israel Lobby
"committee" - most likely AIPAC.
5. Began to work with conservative networks in the 1970s, forming the
neoconservatives. Before that largely ignored, as it has always been by the liberal
establishment and its pro-Arab policies.
6. Not unimportant, mafia kingpin Meyer Lansky was a Zionist, and Jimmy Hoffa
even more so.
7. Various Russian oligarchs and mafia bosses have worked in close cooperation
with Israel, as they are Jewish. The Mossad, CIA and MI6 seem to have been
making good use of this asset against communist and nationalist Russian
elements. James Woolsey, Fritz Ermart (Le Cercle and worked for Brzezinski,
Carlucci and SAIC) and the Rothschild family are among those linked to this kind
8. The Mossad became allied first with James Angleton and, after his ouster from
the CIA, with Ted Shackley's CIA group. Both Shackley and the Mossad have
been accused of drug running, arms smuggling, money laundering, assassination,
the plotting of coups and seem to be involved, along with the previous
establishments, in the protection of sadistic child abuse networks.
Liberal establishment domination of U.S. Republican vs Democrat system
The table below should make it quite obvious that the Rockefeller group, with their primary
protege Henry Kissinger, together with a little help from George Shultz and Bechtel, has
dominated U.S. politics since at least the Eisenhower administration. If anybody here wants to be
elected president, it's recommended that you don't talk conspiracy and make sure you're not to
the left of this establishment. You can be an ultraright (neo)conservative if you choose. That's
also quite popular. Then the national security community, the Israel Lobby, Fox News and many
smaller news outlets will rally behind you. But if your are serious about being elected, you'll
have to become a Christian. Otherwise the "powers that be" (identified in this article) can't sell
you to the masses living between New York City and Los Angeles. Thinking about it, that
perfectly explains why the New Right and Religious Right, which are basically the same,
decided to team up with the neocons.
However, whether you are a Democrat or Republican, it doesn't really matter. James Woolsey
and Zbigniew Brzezinski are Democrats. The more "left-wing" David Rockefeller and Henry
Kissinger are Republicans. Just know who your bosses are, what they want from you, and figure
out a strategy on how to sell it to the public. Because that's what politicians really are: salesmen
and PR officials. Ever wondered why during debates not a single politician has ever said to an
opponent: "Well, you've got a good point there. I think I'm going to change my opinion on that."
No, because they're not free to do whatever they think is best for the people. They're ramming a
program down your throat put together by think tanks financed and overseen by these
establishment interests. That's not being pessimistic. That's just the way the system works. Just
look here, the same interests - Rockefeller, Kissinger and Bechtel - everywhere:

There's no doubt many other more recent names can be listed as Pilgrims Society members once
modern membership lists become available. The last complete one that I have been able to find
dates from 1980. I do little research on politicians unless they appear in a Pilgrims Society list or
some other group discussed on this website. Membership lists are what guides the research on
Beyond the four-establishment model: Kissinger Associates meets the CIA (and the
Already a few remarks have been made that the conservative and later neoconservative
establishments really seem to be controlled by the CIA. Evidence for that can be seen in
relatively moderate and top-level CIA officers that have been active in running ultraconservative
groups as Le Cercle and the American Security Council - most notably Ray Cline, James
Angleton, Ted Shackley and some of these men's closest associates. It should not be forgotten
that Henry Jackson, whose Senate office was stacked by early Jewish neocons, including Perle
and Wolfowitz, in 1973 is known to have worked closely with Ted Shackley, William Colby and
James Schlesinger in undermining the Church Committee's inquiries into Richard Helms' illegal
CIA projects: MK-ULTRA, the Kennedy assassination, coups, Mockingbird, you name it. 
By the early 1980s Richard Perle worked at the Pentagon under the authority of Fred Ikle,
together with General Richard Stilwell, a former CIA chief in the Far East. The boss of all these
men was deputy defense secretary Frank Carlucci, a senior CIA operative said to have made the
decision with Shackley, General Vernon Walters (ASC), George H. W. Bush and others to try
and foment a silent CIA coup of the White House in the late 1970s.  We know these men
were close associates and friends from the 1970s on and into the 21st century.  And
throughout the 1980s, it actually were Fred Ikle, General Richard Stilwell and Richard Perle who
acted as some of the most important U.S. contacts of the secretive Cercle group, which was
increasingly being run by Carlucci's friend, Ted Shackley.
In 1988 the ultraconnected CIA spook James Woolsey joined the board of the Jewish Institute
for National Security Affairs , co-founded a decade earlier by Senator Henry Jackson and
Iran-Contra veteran Michael Ledeen , who, just as Jackson, was close to CIA officers Ted
Shackley (ran Le Cercle) and Ray Cline (co-chairman American Security Council and the U.S.
Global Strategy Council). There's actually every indication that back in the 1970s and early
1980s Ledeen was a key U.S. liaison to the fascist P2 Lodge for Shackley at the CIA and
Alexander Haig (Pilgrims and Kissinger protege) at the State Department. 
So what do we have here? We have four key members of the neoconservative "establishment" -
Jackson, Ledeen, Perle and Woolsey - who really seem to be nothing more than recruits for the
CIA's Israeli desk, having been appointed as key liaisons to the Mossad, the Israeli government
and the Israel lobby in the United States. Senator Jackson died in 1983, but Ledeen, Perle, and
Woolsey stayed on the board of JINSA until early 2012 when a dispute arose with a more
moderate lead financier of JINSA. Looking at the advisory board of JINSA in July 2001, we find
Woolsey, Perle, Ledeen, together with John Bolton, Dick Cheney (officially from 1993-1999),
Max Kampelman, Jack Kemp, Jeane Kirkpatrick (ASC; Le Cercle), Eugene Rostow (ASC) and
Admiral David Jeremiah (MITRE; CIA's In-Q-Tel and Wackenhut).  These persons had been
here for years and in early 2012 could still be found on the board, except for Kemp and
Kirkpatrick, who had died, and Dick Cheney, who didn't go back after his term as U.S. vice
president had ended. At this point an internal crisis arose between a relatively moderate lead
financier of JINSA and some of the more extremist core members, leading to the departure of
Shoshana Bryen, the executive director of JINSA since 1977 (after Ledeen). In protest, Woolsey,
Ledeen and Perle also resigned from JINSA, once more revealing the close partnership between
these men. 
Perle, and especially Woolsey, became founders of many neocon institutes after 9/11 (see list of
private institutes). Woolsey, however, has always been intricately connected to the core of the
liberal establishment, best illustrated by his Yale background, Oxford Rhodes Scholarship
(Senators of his 1993 CIA senate confirmation hearing were joking about
Rhodes scholars taking over the administration and being so deeply
involved in intelligence), membership in the CFR since 1975,
directorship of the Atlantic Council since 1981, positions at the
Smithsonian, and vice chairmanship of the CSIS think tank by 1988
, where already at that point he shared the board with Henry
Kissinger, Maurice Greenberg, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Claiborne Pell
(closest of friends with the Liechtenstein family) the previously-
mentioned Etienne Davignon and Baron Edmond de Rothschild. 
At the same time Woolsey was the ultimate arms industry insider -
probably for the CIA - as a lawyer and director of corporations as
British Aerospace, DynCorp, Martin Marietta, McDonnell Douglas,
Litton Industries, Fairchild Industries, Rockwell, SAIC, the Titan
Corporation, United Technologies, General Dynamics and also the
Carlyle Group. 
But his is just where things start to get interesting. CIA influence over
the neocons and its reasonably strong ties to the defense industry will
have to be discussed somewhere else on this site. Despite all the
rumors of a secretive "military-industrial complex", there's actually
little evidence for the idea that the Rockefeller-Kissinger-Bechtel
group, with all of its influence over the media, the key government
positions, and top-level connections all over the world, has much to
fear from any network formed by CIA and defense corporation
Top neocon Richard Perle.

by George Shultz (Bechtel) and
even works with Henry Kissinger
on many occassions these days
(Bilderberg, National Interest and
various company boards). But
where is the "neocon
establishment?" It doesn't exist.
All neocons are low to mid-level
DOD employees, CIA-Mossad
liaison officers and political
science professors involved in
various think tanks. So why is
everyone talking about the
neocon takeover of the US
In fact, the biographies below will show that senior CIA personnel actually have the tendency to
ally themselves with the globalist Rockefeller-Kissinger group - and not the other way around.
46 Kissinger-CIA associates who run western society and can be tied to all major
The biographies of the most well-known personalities in this list, certainly when their names
already appear in membership lists of the Pilgrims Society (now updated with 500 names to 1,677), the
1001 Club (now updated with 150 names to 257), Le Cercle, or have been discussed in other articles, are
very brief. Many of the CIA biographies are much more extensive, because they do not appear in
any of ISGP's combined membership/biography lists - although in many cases this will change
when more information becomes available. Until that point, however, these extensive
biographies here will serve as a reference for future articles. It actually took 60 hours plus to
complete these biographies, so much is information still scattered today. The Who's Who,
Wikipedia, newspaper articles and Google all need to be combined. And it's still possible to find
new connections almost every day.
The persons in this list have been selected because they have friends all over the media, largely
decide which persons are acceptable for key government posts, and have dominated key private
institutes as Bilderberg, the Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations, the
European Round Table and dozens of other less well-known groups. Found here is also the small
clique of liberal establishmentarians who have actually been invited to more conservative CIA-
ran national security groups as Le Cercle and the American Security Council. A final criteria for
the selection of these persons has been important links to the Kennedy assassination, 9/11,
money laundering drug trafficking, pedophile entrapment networks, coup plotting and even
Steven Greer's rather disinformative Disclosure Project. These conspiracies are not given much
attention here, however, and are not consistently mentioned. Other parts of this site will
separately deal with these issues.
One thing that should become obvious from this list is that key high level CIA officers have a
tendency to ally themselves with the Kissinger group. And together this combined group can be
deeply tied to just about any unsolved conspiracy that books have been written about. This is
also the purpose of this list: if you are looking into any given conspiracy and cannot trace it to
one or more of the individuals listed here, you really must be doing something wrong. For years
I've been looking into more than a few of these conspiracies, internationally, and everything can
always be traced back to these men and their closest associates. This actually makes sense, as
there is no one else with the influence to cover up major conspiracies. Sure, many of these names
have already been named before... over and over and over and over again, by all kinds of
radicals, and for all the wrong reasons. But that seems to be part of the counter-intelligence
The neoconservatives are completely left out from this list for the reason already mentioned in
this article: they appear to be nothing more than liaison (intelligence) officers between the
conservative (CIA), liberal (State Department) and Zionist establishments.
1. David Rockefeller: Pilgrims Society and 1001 Club. Has been extremely influential in
post-World War II globalization process. The most connected globalist alive. Co-founder
Bilderberg and Trilateral Commission. Chairman CFR. Invited to Le Cercle.
2. Laurance Rockefeller: 1001 Club. Brother of David. Has been extremely influential in
the sustainable development movement and the dissemination of new age, fringe science.
3. Henry Kissinger: Pilgrims Society. Deeply involved in national security issues and
political-economic integration. Involved in just about every highest-level private group,
directly and through Kissinger Associates. Today possibly more connected than David
Rockefeller. Runs Bilderberg primarily with Kissinger Associates director Etienne
Davignon, a person accused of involvement in a CIA-linked child abuse network in the
X-Dossiers of the Dutroux Affair, just as Maurice Lippens, another visitor of Bilderberg
and the Trilateral Commission. Long-time member Trilateral Commission and trustee of
CSIS. Invited to Le Cercle.
4. Brent Scowcroft: Founding vice chairman of Kissinger Associates. Possibly the most
connected of Kissinger's proteges, involved in private groups as the Forum for
International Policy, the Virginia Neurological Institute, the Center for the National
Interest, the American Turkish Council, the U.S.-Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce and
many others. Visited Bilderberg in 1985, 1988 and 1994. Also visited the Trilateral
Commission. Was contemplated for an invitation to Le Cercle in the mid 1990s. Trustee
at CSIS. Chairman CFR's US/Middle East Project that put Anglo-American policy
towards Syria on the map. Flanked here by Sir Peter Sutherland (listed below), Zbigniew
Brzezinski, Paul Volcker, Lee Hamilton (vice chair 9/11 Commission who shows up
absolutely everywhere!) and Thomas Pickering of Soros' International Crisis Group.
5. Zbigniew Brzezinski: Pilgrims Society. Deeply involved in national security issues and
political-economic integration. Founder Trilateral Commission with David Rockefeller
and among his closest allies. Well-known global strategist. Shared the boards of The
National Interest and the H. Smith Richardson Foundation with his friend and co-
strategist Samuel Huntington, author of the 1996 book The Clash of Civilizations. Long-
time trustee of CSIS. Deep ties to the (neo)conservative establishment through Le Cercle,
H. Smith Richardson Foundation, The National Interest, the Jamestown Foundation, the
American Committee for Peace in the Caucasus and other groups. Had early CIA ties.
Also, in 1975 founding board member of the Washington Institute for the Study of
Conflict, together with Brian Crozier (Le Cercle), George Ball, John Diebold (of the later
voting machines controversy) and well-known CIA officers Kermit Roosevelt and Robert
Komer. Deeply tied to a child abuse ring at the board of the Knights of Malta-ran
AmeriCares through scandals involving Covenant House in New York and its branch in
Guatemala, ran by a Knight of Malta and CIA-backed death squad leader.
6. Paul Volcker: Pilgrims Society. Extremely well-connected ally of David Rockefeller in
the globalization process. North American chairman Trilateral Commission. Bilderberg.
Former trustee chairman of CSIS. Invited to Le Cercle. Involved in dozens of private
7. James Wolfensohn: From Australia. Naturalized U.S. citizen since 1980. Among the
closest associates of David Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger, Paul Volcker, George Shultz,
and Jacob Rothschild. Long-time annual Bilderberg visitor.
8. John Whitehead: Pilgrims Society. Influential New York City crony of David
Rockefeller, but involved in less globalist institutes than the above men (dozens more
than listed here). Visitor Trilateral Commission in the 1980s. Annual Bilderberg visitor in
9. Peter Peterson: Pilgrims Society. Co-founder Blackstone Group, which has a strategic
partnership with Kissinger Associates and Maurice Greenberg's AIG. Among the
international advisory board members of Blackstone are Jacob Rothschild and Jacob
Wallenberg. Influential New York City crony of David Rockefeller, but involved in less
international institutes than men as David Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger, Paul Volcker, or
Zbigniew Brzezinski. His Peterson Institute of International Economics has gathered the
elite of the elite. Past and present directors have included George Shultz, Paul Volcker,
Maurice Greenberg, Lynn Forester de Rothschild, Jacob Wallenberg, Alan Greenspan
and David Rockefeller.
10. Maurice Greenberg: Crony of David Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger, Peter Peterson, etc.
Rather obvious candidate for Pilgrims Society membership, but not invited yet. Chairman
and CEO of AIG from 1968 to 2005, appointed as the protege of high level OSS veteran
Cornelius Vander Starr. Top-level CIA for many decades. His AIG company has similar
high level CIA and MI6 links. AIG used to have a significant stake in Kroll Associates.
His son headed Marsh & McLennan, which owned Kroll in the 2004-2010 period. Long-
time CSIS trustee. Also runs the Center for the National Interest with Kissinger, Peterson
and the CIA's James Schlesinger.
11. George Shultz: Pilgrims Society. Deeply tied to the interests of Rockefeller and Bechtel
since the early 1970s. Chairman JPMorgan Chase international council from the 1990s to
2009. Bechtel director until 2006. Close to the neoconservatives and apparent political
kingmaker of the neocons.
12. Warren Buffett: Famous business magnate and philanthropist from Omaha, Nebraska.
Co-organizer European Economic Round Table with Jacob Rothschild in 2002. Finances
similar projects as the Rockefellers. His close friend Harold Anderson has been chairman
of the Nebraska Committee for Selection for the Rhodes Scholarships. Both men were
also members of the elite Augusta Gold Club, in which they shared membership with
men like the Bechtels, George Shultz, Peter Peterson, Bill Gates and many other
corporate executives around the country. At least in the 1990s best of friends with the
Offutt Air Force Base leadership, which explains why pedophile pimp Larry King was so
popular at that base. Buffett knew him and Anderson was his financial patron at the
Franklin Credit Union.
13. Bechtel family: Can be identified as a key Rockefeller associate through the 1001 Club,
Pilgrims Society members Allen Dulles, Richard Helms, George Shultz and Caspar
Weinberger, the family's ties with the Morgan bank and the internationalist Rockefeller
Republican connections of Mandalay Camp at the Bohemian Grove. It should be clear
that the Bechtels are part of the liberal establishment. Their original friendship with Allen
Dulles gave them important CIA ties, starting with the National Committee for a Free
Asia (Asia Foundation) in 1951.
14. Ted Turner: Billionaire founder of CNN. Important financier of United Nations and
Gaia-type world religion causes, along with the Rockefellers, Maurice Strong, and
Warren Buffett. One example would be the State of the World Forum. Personally
designed the Captain Planet cartoon (actually a personal favorite of mine in my youth) of
the early 1990s in which kids around the world defend the planet from pollution for Gaia.
Together with David Rockefeller, Warren Buffett and George Soros a member of the
Good Club. Many other news outlets are controlled by allied Pilgrims Society members,
but Ted Turner is much more high profile. Besides his financing of sustainable
development projects, completely uninvolved in the dozens and dozens of think tanks
that Kissinger's men go to.
15. Claiborne Pell: Pilgrims Society. Went partying at the CIA-ran George Town Club in
Washington, D.C. with the Shah's ambassador. Ally of the Rockefellers in bringing the
Shah to the United States after the collapse of his regime. Very close friends with the
House of Liechtenstein, members of the 1001 Club who often come over to stay at the
Pell family's house. Limited, but high level neocon connections through the Victims of
Communism Memorial Foundation, where he shared the board with Edwin Feulner,
Jeane Kirkpatrick, Zbigniew Brzezinski and others. Also top level liberal and neocon
connections through his trusteeship of CSIS. Died in 2009.
GREAT BRITAIN AND CANADA
16. Lord Peter Carrington: President of the Pilgrims Society. Order of the Garter. Director

Notice the many links to the sustainable development movement, think tanks ran by the Eastern
Establishment and partnerships with Kissinger and men from his immediate circle. Only those
who are alive today, or who were still influential until just recently, have been selected. This
means no Allen Dulles, Richard Helms, William Casey, James Angleton or Ray Cline, despite
the fact that certainly the first three are great examples of the CIA-partnership with the
Rockefeller-Kissinger group. Yes, even Casey, who for decades ran Capital Cities (bought ABC
in 1985) with Dulles-linked, liberal-oriented Pilgrims Society members as Thomas Dewey,
Lowell Thomas and Alger Chapman, was ultimately not far removed from "the establishment" -
despite not agreeing with State Department politics.
Another point that should be made is that CIA directors are seemingly never picked without
already having CIA experience. There's every indication, for example, that Woolsey was already
CIA when he established Yale Citizens for Eugene McCarthy for President in 1967, a curious
anti-Vietnam War candidate apparently in the business of educating hippies to cut their hair and
dress properly. Had he not been appointed CIA director in 1993, he may well have continued to
slip under the radar as a major CIA operative. The same goes for John Deutch, who had major
establishment ties since the early 1980s, specifically to persons as Warren Buffett, Robert
McNamara, Katharine Graham, Cyrus Vance and others.  Had he not been picked as CIA
director in 1996, we all might just perceive him as just another liberal establishment-oriented
businessman. Also look at the background of Maurice Greenberg, the close friend of Kissinger.
Officially he has never been CIA, despite really belonging to it at a very high level. Had his
name never been put forward as a potential CIA deputy director and later as a director, no one
may have picked up on his early OSS ties either.  Another example might be the curious
presidential candidate Ross Perot. What is he doing today as co-chairman of the OSS Society,
along with James Woolsey, Porter Goss, George H. W. Bush and James Schlesinger, with the
notorious General John Singlaub as executive chairman of the board and the daughter of William
Casey (both of the Order of Malta) and the son of William Colby (Opus Dei) as ordinary
directors?  Doesn't make any sense - or does it? And what about that Cercle visitor and
Knight of Malta Paul Dietrich, who in recent years claimed to his driver that Condoleezza Rice
was groomed by a CIA "fast track" program for a high government position?
"It was while we were sitting in the parlor at Huntland during our initial meeting talking
about his wife that he let slip that she was involved in something that he called "spy
school". He informed me that she is a crack shot with an AK-47 and that she often brags
about "killing" spies before coming home and preparing dinner. ...
"He started telling me about his wife's involvement with the CIA. Paul told me that
Laura had been involved in a "fast track" program with the CIA at Georgetown to
recruit women in high position roles in the federal government. This was at the
beginning of the Reagan era and was facilitated by Jeane Kirkpatrick. Condoleezza Rice
had also been a part of this program. He told me that the position Laura had held at
State, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Human Rights and Humanitarian Affairs was a
front for the CIA at the State Department. ...
"Paul told me that she was one of "Bolton's girls," the gaggle of very attractive female
assistants that John Bolton had trailing behind him when he entered Senate hearing
chambers on Capitol Hill, etc. ...
"Paul told me that his wife was on an intelligence board and had been hand-picked by
Donald Rumsfeld. James Woolsey is also on this Defense Department (?) intelligence
board. Paul didn't elaborate any further on this. However I suspected the board was
involved with DIA or at least met at Bolling Air Force Base as Laura had DoD stickers
on her car that allowed her to enter that base.
"Paul told me that the counter-terrorism work Laura did involved a team that would go
and gather every detail of a terrorist incident world-wide. ...
"[Laura] worked for the CIA and was currently employed training recruits. ... I
personally saw Laura Dietrich's tax information and pay stubs, the private military
contractors she worked for are: MPRI, Armorgroup, Tessada & Associates, Hamilton
Trading Group, Inc." 
Some might say this cannot be considered a reliable claim, but I have to disagree. It's just too
much of a coincidence that I come across claims like this all the time when researching Cercle
visitors. The author seems to have known nothing about the networks discussed on this site, but
still there are links all over the place when looking at the names he has mentioned - also of those
besides the Dietrich couple. Rumsfeld and Woolsey would have known each other for years
through the CIA-linked H. Smith Richardson Foundation, the Defense Policy Board and
undoubtedly a number of other private groups. Jeane Kirkpatrick was a hugely connected
neoconservative who could be found at the American Security Council and Le Cercle. As just
discussed, she would have also been familiar with John Bolton through the advisory board of the
CIA-connected Jewish Institute for International Affairs. Laura Dietrich certainly did work for
Bolton  and was active at the State Department in returning refugees ("commies") to
countries as El Salvador, to be slaughtered by various CIA/ASC/Cercle-backed death squad
leaders as Roberto D'Aubuisson, Mario Sandoval, Colonel Enrique Bermudez, Stedman Fagoth
and others.  She was also unusually slim and attractive for a politician.
What we have already discussed is that Rice was groomed by George Shultz, and, together with
Colin Powell, also by Kissinger men Lawrence Eagleburger, Brent Scowcroft and the CIA's
Robert Gates at the Forum for International Policy since the early 1990s. As with Michael
Ledeen (Shackley-Haig), Perle (neocon Bilderberg regular), Wolfowitz (neocon Bilderberg
steering committee), Woolsey (CIA-liberal establishment) and other cases, this is additional
evidence of cooperation between the State Department and the CIA, as well as that leading
neoconservatives really are part of a joint CIA-Mossad operation. The CIA is very important in
understanding covert politics, but it can't really act too much on its own without having the
approval of the State Department elite. It's rather easy for the latter to use the media and expose
any conspiracy, like happened during Iran-Contra after Casey and his spooks had been
undermining George Shultz and John Whitehead at the State Department and Caspar Weinberger
at the Defense Department - all of them Rockefeller-connected Pilgrims Society members.
Information like this not only make you wonder about Rice and Powell, but also about Bill
Clinton, with his extensive links to CIA Mena drug trafficking as governor of Arkansas in the
1980s  and reported friendship with Wally Hilliard, another rather obvious CIA drug dealer
who happened to own the flight school where the primary 9/11 hijackers were trained.  And
that's just where things begin with Bill Clinton, who was also a close friend of the Rockefellers
and Rothschilds with all their ties to the impact floors of both World Trade Center towers, as
well as to the towers' security system.  As already discussed, Powell was close to the
Rothschilds too. As the following list will show, most CIA directors, whether Republican or
Democrat, have liberal establishment ties and especially to the Rockefeller-Kissinger group.
These are the most important names:
1. James Woolsey: Has spoken to the Pilgrims Society. The most connected
"neoconservative" of all, more so even than Richard Perle and Jeane Kirkpatrick
combined. Still, with his law degree from Yale and a Rhodes scholarship to Oxford, he
has impeccable credentials as a liberal establishmentarian - even more so due to his
involvement with the CFR, the Atlantic Council and CSIS years before his appointment
as CIA director. Already in 1989 he was a vice chairman of CSIS and served on the board
with Henry Kissinger, Maurice Greenberg, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Claiborne Pell (closest
of friends with the Liechtenstein family) the previously-mentioned Etienne Davignon and
Baron Edmond de Rothschild. Director Fairchild Industries (1984-89), the Aerospace
Corporation (1982-89), DynCorp (1988-89), Martin Marietta of Norman Augustine
(1991-93) and British Aerospace (1992-93). As a lawyer in the 1980s and early 1990s,
Woolsey represented even more defense corporations: SAIC, Lockheed, McDonnell
Douglas, Litton Industries, Rockwell, the Titan Corporation, United Technologies,
General Dynamics, as well as Carlucci's Carlyle Group and Freeport McMoRan. Joint
Strategic Targetting and Planning Staff, Scientific Advisory Group, Offutt Air Force
Base 1987-1988. He's just about the only "neocon" concerned about global warming. CIA
director 1993-1995. From the late 1980's until today he grew into the virtual leader of the
neoconservative movement. Co-chairman AFIO and OSS Society, both with George H.
W. Bush. Other former CIA officers as James Schlesinger, Frank Carlucci, Richard
Helms have also been involved with these groups. Such a rediculously long biography,
that it's better to look in the Pilgrims Society membership list for more information.

Social and Clinical Psychology from Harvard. Research program director at the
Rockefeller-funded Urban Institute 1975-1977, with trustees over the years as Katharine

the daily energy needs of a large American home. ..."
3. Ted Shackley: Controversial CIA officers. Most likely ran the operation to kill Kennedy,
along with his superior Richard Helms and with government and media cover from the
Rockefeller group in New York. Reportedly decided to take over the White House with
Vernon Walters, Frank Carlucci, George H. W. Bush and others in the late 1970s.

at least the early 1980s. Until his death he also largely ran the AFIO in Miami with
numerous high level "retired" spooks as Woolsey, Webster, Carlucci, Schlesinger, Goss,
Bush and others visiting conferences. Reportedly in 1979 Richard Helms said about
Shackley: "Ted is what we call in the spook business a quadruple threat: drugs, arms,
money and murder." True or not, add pedophile entrapment networks to the list and it
should be quite complete. His biography has been described in various locations on this

as being involved in the Phoenix program and Ted Shackley's opium trafficking ring.

state 2001-2005 under Powell. In 2001 said to have threatened General Mahmud Ahmed

Goss and the Pilgrim William vanden Heuvel. Bernadette Casey Smith is among the
directors. Father of George W. Bush, U.S. president from 2000 to 2008, who went along

1979. Director Strategic Evaluation Center, CIA December 1979-February 1980.

14. Edwin Feulner: Only non-CIA in this list - although him being a decades long key
liaison to Le Cercle shows he's a high level CIA insider. Knight of Malta. President
Heritage Foundation since 1977, funded by the fortunes of Richard Mellon Scaife, Paul
Weyrich and the Coors family, as well as Bechtel. Along with the CIA, the Heritage
Foundation is Le Cercle's primary contact point in the U.S., which fits, as the Heritage
Foundation is considered the key Opus Dei/Knights of Malta think tank in the United
States. Otto von Habsburg regularly stopped by at the offices of the Heritage Foundation.
Limited involvement with CSIS, although Scaife used to be among the trustees. In recent
years secretary of the peculiar Korea-United States Exchange Council, Inc., with Henry
Kissinger as vice president. Advisory council Victims of Communism Memorial
Foundation, together with Zbigniew Brzezinski (until 2004), Claiborne Pell (until 2009),

the Korea-United States Exchange Council.
15. Otto von Habsburg: Last heir to the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Since World War II at
the center of a vast network of Vatican and Paneuropa-related private institutes. The most
senior and one of the oldest of these groups still exists today as Le Cercle and is deeply
tied to the CIA, MI6 and other international intelligence agencies. The network of Otto
von Habsburg is completely ran by Knights of Malta and Opus Dei sympathizers. Died in
2011 at the age of 98. A family member can be found in the 1001 Club.
16. Hans Adam II von Liechtenstein: For some reason this family shows up as a key
liaison between Vatican-Paneuropa and Anglo-American interests. Closely linked to the
Pell family, who are members of the Pilgrims Society and close to the Rockefellers.
Themselves obviously close to the Rockefellers and Rothschilds through membership in
the 1001 Club. Member of the World Baden-Powell Fellowship (boy scouts), together
with Egmond Frommelt (1001 Club), Herbert Batliner (1001 Club), Dr. E. Heinz Batliner
and Prince Nikolaus von Liechtenstein. Batliner has been accused by German intelligence
of laundering massive amounts of money for Ferdinand Marcos of the Philippines, drug
lord Pablo Escobar, Mobutu Sese Seko (1001 Club) and Helmut Kohl's Christian
Democrat Party in Germany. Along with Rothschild employee Dr. Alfred Hartmann
(1001 Club), Batliner is probably the most notorious alleged money launders in Europe.
Coincidentally he used to work with Tibor Rosenbaum (1001 Club), another close
associate of the Rothschilds suspected of having been a Mossad agent.
I continue to run into new private institutes the men above have been involved with. All new
information in this area can be found on here.
The bottom line
Whatever establishment we are talking about, in the end a lot comes down to class warfare. All
establishments will be hostile to (genuine) socialist politics and its persistent support for labor
unions and the rights of the lower and middle classes. The more radical form of socialism,
communism, has been the most acute threat throughout most of the 20th century and all four
establishments have been doing their best to either contain or eradicate it.
Former prime minister Dries van Agt, once explained that Dutch political parties have a
tendency to settle their differences behind the scenes. I'm inclined to believe that the
establishments surrounding the Atlantic interact in a similar way, as well as establishments
"After a certain amount of debate agreements are made. Then it is obvious of course that
those in power, the involved ministers, usually together with the party leaders - in
meetings where outsiders are not present - will agree on how they will behave in
congressional debates. Often it even goes so far that they are discussing the likely motions
of the opposition - the ones that will be acceptable and the ones that will not be. They will
also discuss how each party can save face as much as possible in these discussions.
Usually it is already arranged what party can demand something from the government.
The change has already been laid ready. ... There's very little room for individual action."
When it comes to establishments, the impression that I have increasingly been having is that
important issues are discussed behind the scenes while the media are used to sell the ideas of one
of these establishments to the public - or to surreptitiously undermine the policies of another
establishment. The constant bickering between liberal pro-detente and conservative anti-detente
forces, between liberal anti-SDI and conservative pro-SDI groups during the Cold War is a great
example of that. In both cases think tank personnel and politicians tied to one of these
establishments used the media to basically sway public opinion in their favor - often by trying to
come across as "nonpartisan". But at the same time key persons in these establishments
interacted with each other in the backrooms of corporations, think tanks and socials clubs. It
appears that it is in these backrooms that limits are being set on what can and can't be discussed
in public. The Kennedy assassination and 9/11 are ultimate examples of that. Because all
establishments were involved in those conspiracies to an extent, and likely also because it would
undermine the continued existence of every other establishment, absolutely no one has been
allowed to dig into these events, not even to (seriously) implicate an opposing establishment.
Compare this to the New York Times, Washington Post and Time magazine once in while
exposing CIA wrongdoing, which at least in some cases appears to have been an effort to curb
conservative CIA-linked forces in the White House.
The conspiracy movement has generally been manipulated along similar lines. On the liberal side
there has been Daniel Sheehan's group. Hobnobbing with State Department elites as George
Shultz, Zbigniew Brzezinski and the Rockefellers, it was Sheehan who was responsible for
exposing the drug trafficking activities of Shackley's CIA group and its activities of trying to
capture the presidency. At the same time he and his associates, like crop circle researcher Colin
Andrews and Dr. Steven Greer, other associates of Laurance Rockefeller, have been religiously
promoting catastrophic global warning theories. Ask Sheehan about the Kennedy assassination
or 9/11 and all of sudden he doesn't believe in any major establishment-ran conspiracies
anymore. Gee, I wonder why. Maybe because those are the ones he's working for.
The wonderful John Birchers and the Liberty Lobby who always brought us info on the CFR, Bilderberg and the liberal
establishment, hated the left-wing Kennedy. Picture 3: Carol Rosin, prominent in the disinformation-riddled Disclosure Project,
and a major anti-SDI campaigner with many other curious links. Sheehan, lawyer for both Laurance Rockefeller and the
Disclosure Project, helped run the State of the World Forum, visited by leading Trilateralists and Bilderbergers, in part to create a
new world religion. Sheehan was the one who exposed Iran-Contra drug trafficking of Ted Shackley's "secret team". Not for you,
the small man, but for friends like Henry Kissinger, George Shultz and Zbigniew Brzezinski who wanted to curb the influence of
William Casey's spooks on President Ronald Reagan. These three were among the visitors of the State of the World Forum,
financed by David Rockefeller, the Rockefeller Foundation, Ted Turner and even UFO cultist Joe Firmage, a James Woolsey
associate who financed the work of Robert and Ryan Wood on the MJ-12 documents and has also been represented by Sheehan.
Yes, even the conspiracy community and New Age scene are dominated by various establishments. That's the whole purpose why
I didn't completely do away with my site.
On the conservative side the John Birch Society, the Liberty Lobby and its various descendants
have been beating the anti-United Nations, anti-CFR, anti-Bilderberg and anti-global warming
theory drum. Seeing how especially the John Birch Society was interlocked with Western Goals
and the top-level American Security Council, does one really think the John Birchers or the
Liberty Lobby ever represented the "small man"? No, they didn't. They never went after the
Kennedy assassination or 9/11, except when they could pin minor aspects on "liberals" or
"Zionists". Why? Maybe because MacArthur's fascist generals and Shackley's CIA colleagues
were running these organizations, some of whom, including Shackley himself, having been tied
to the assassination. You're not safe either in Great Britain. Look at Lord Monckton, a superhero
in the conspiracy movement for his paper 35 Inconvenient Truths and willingness to challenge Al
Gore's global warming theories in public. Just check out his family history I would say. It's a tale
of Pilgrims Society and Knights of Malta members, of MI6 station chiefs, the mercenary firm
Defence Systems Limited and government assassins as Stephan Kock.
I suggest you tread carefully outside the walls of ISGP: counter-intelligence is a huge pain in the
ass. This site is meant to be a safe-haven for all those interested in getting solid answers on
conspiracy topics without you having to spent literally your entire life trying to sort fact from
Below the reader can see a three-establishment model variation, together with the key political
convictions of each group. In this case the conservative establishments of Europe and the United
States have been taken together, because of their close political and religious objectives.
 October 30, 1988, Washington Post Magazine, 'If John F. Kennedy hadn't been such a
lover, J. Edgar Hoover would have had a lot more trouble blackmailing the president,
holding the attorney general political hostage and branding Martin Luther King Jr. a
communist': "Kennedy wanted to shift the bureau's priorities drastically from domestic
intelligence to organized crime. Citing the FBI's own private figures that the U.S.
Communist Party had shriveled further since its collapse in 1956 -- until some 1,500 FBI
informants within the party supplied a hefty part of its budget and membership -- he
insisted that the bureau's vast domestic security network was a wasteful bureaucratic
appendix of the McCarthy era. Kennedy was appalled to learn that there were only a
dozen FBI agents targeted against organized crime, and it annoyed him almost beyond
endurance that the FBI still denied the very existence of organized crime."
 *) See note 6 for Murchison connection.
*) Murchison's most obvious CIA connection was through FIDCO. February 5, 2001,
Insight on the News, 'The Plot Thickens in PROMIS Affair': "[Senior CIA operative
Robert] Booth Nichols also served on the board of First Intercontinental Development
Corp. (FIDCO), a building/construction company. Among Nichols' corporate partners at
FIDCO in the 1980s were Michael McManus, then an aide to President Reagan; Robert
Maheu [senior CIA operative], former chief executive officer of Howard Hughes
Enterprises; and Clint Murchison Jr. of the Murchison empire based in Dallas.
Riconosciuto long has maintained that Booth Nichols and FIDCO were associated with
U.S. intelligence agencies and used as a cutout. Again, whereas others summarily had
dismissed this claim, the RCMP investigators pursued the lead, poring over documents
from the long-abandoned Riconosciuto storage and in the files of U.S. law-enforcement
agencies. For example, RCMP obtained FBI wiretap summaries of telephone
conversations between Nichols and another of his then-partners in FIDCO, Eugene
Giaquinto, who at the same time also was president of MCA Home Entertainment
Division. The wiretap summaries reads like a who's who of alleged mob figures with close
ties to the motion-picture industry. The Mounties also received substantial related
information from classified internal FBI files." 1994, Carol Marshall, 'The Last Circle':
"But again I asked myself, why was an international arms dealer [Nichols] on the Board
of F.I.D.C.O (First Intercontinental Development Corporation), a CIA front corporation,
which offered three billion dollars to rebuild Beirut to President Amin Gamayel of
Lebanon, whose chief of finances (Sami el Khouri) was shipping tons of heroin to Sicily

scandals and plain blackmail when they should be catching criminals. They also have a
habit of sneering at local law enforcement officers. This must stop."

lover, J. Edgar Hoover would have had a lot more trouble blackmailing the president,
holding the attorney general political hostage and branding Martin Luther King Jr. a
communist': "Mistrust and miscommunication [between the Kennedy brothers and the
FBI] were most pronounced over [Martin Luther] King, but they also intensified along at
least two parallel tracks. One was organized crime. That fall, differences were personified
in a crew-cut contract killer named Joe Valachi, who for his own reasons was willing to
testify publicly about the inner workings of crime syndicates. For Kennedy, Valachi's
proposed firsthand revelations about "capos" and "consiglieres" would prove that the old
legends of Capone were alive, enlarged and modernized into an established criminal
conspiracy of enormous power. However, such revelations contradicted Hoover's public
position that organized crime theories were "baloney." If Valachi publicly described the
vast operations of the five New York crime families, Hoover could not long hold out
against Kennedy's demand for new priorities. When by adroit news leaks and prearranged
congressional demands Robert Kennedy assured that Valachi would deliver his
confessions in public, Hoover tried to cover his retreat. Two days after the march on
Washington, he issued an "FBI Bulletin" to law-enforcement officers across the country,
claiming that the FBI had long since established "a successful penetration . . . into the
innermost sanctum of the criminal deity." Because of Valachi, Kennedy said privately,
"the FBI changed their whole concept of crime in the United States." But Kennedy had
special reason to be gentle in victory over Hoover: He knew the director held the balance
in a quivering scandal that might well ruin President Kennedy."

*) 1978, Arthur Meier Schlesinger, 'Robert Kennedy and His Times', pp. 263-264: "The
much advertised lists of Public Enemies, Top Fugitives and Most Wanted Men kept up the
illusion that the FBI was unrelenting in its war on criminals. In fact, of the hundreds of
crooks thus honored, very few had any connection with orgazined crime. While the bureau
had chased Bonnie and Clyde, it left Vito Genovese and Meyer Lansky of the syndicates to
flourish in peace. In the meantime, Elmer Irey, chief of the Treasury Department's
Intelligence Unit, quietly brought down Al Capone, Johnny Torrio, Waxie Gordon and
Willy Bioff. Thomas E. Dewey in New York broke up the Lucky Luciano ring. Harry
Anslicher of the Bureau of Narcotics was spinning tales about the mafia. Organized crime
was not precisely a secret, even in the 1930s, except evidently to J. Edgar Hoover. None of
the mobsters above, save for passing reference to Capone, was even mentioned in Don
Whitehead's authorized history, The FBI Story, written with Hoover's cooperation in 1956.
Robert Kennedy had discovered Hoover's indifference to organized crime when he
requested FBI dossiers on the Apalachin conferees in 1957. ... In 1959 the FBI New York
office had over four hundred agents working on communism, four on organized crime. ...
In Internal Security [William] Hundley had found "cooperation from the FBI that was
unbelievable." In Organized Crime, Hundley found the FBI's noncooperation equally
unbelievable. "It was like pulling teeth to get anything done in this field at all. ... I had
come out of Internal Security where you had agents coming out of your ears, and get over
into Organized Crime and you couldn't find an agent." ... Why did Hoover veer away from
organized crime? His own favorite explanation was legalistic. "The truth of the matter,"
he said in 1964 (and on many other occasions), "is the FBI had very little jurisdiction in
the field of organized crime prior to September 1961." This proposition was a transparent
fraud. The 1934 legislation had given the FBI ample jurisdiction."

not only included the Dallas aristocracy, but also summer regular J. Edgar Hoover and
*) October 25 1989, The Independent, 'BOOK REVIEW / A creep's suspicions: 'The Boss'
- Athan G Theoharis & John Stuart Cox: Harrap, 14.95 pounds': "IN THE 1950s, when he
was at the height of his reputation as the defender of the United States against the enemy
within, J Edgar Hoover, director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, used to take a
long summer vacation at the Hotel del Charro in La Jolla, California. He went
accompanied by his intimate friend and FBI associate, Clyde Tolson. The two men had
separate bedrooms - in spite of years of rumour, the authors of the latest biography agree
with other recent researchers that Hoover's sexuality was wholly repressed - from which
they would emerge to nap by the pool and to visit the Del Mar race track. From time to
time Hoover, a man so terrified of germs that he had the lavatory in his house built up on
a plinth, would go for a medical check-up. In the evening he would unbend with the hotel's
owner and other guests. All were remarkable choices for America's top policeman. The del
Charro belonged to Clint Murchison, the Texas oilman whose business ways are usually
described as 'controversial'. Other guests included Richard Nixon, then Vice-President;
film stars such as Clark Gable; big Texas wheeler-dealers like Big John Connally, the
Governor shot at President Kennedy's side in Dallas in 1963; and Senator Joseph
McCarthy of Wisconsin, the alcoholic and homosexual senator whose wild accusations of
Communism gave a new word to the language. There were also figures from the world of
high crime, such as Carlos Marcello, once described as 'the most powerful single
organised crime figure in the southern United States'. The hotel had only two rules. One
was that nobody paid their hotel bill. That was picked up by Murchison. The other was
that no Jews were allowed."
*) January 5, 2011, San Diego Reader, 'Oil and Politics in La Jolla': ""Murchison and
Richardson were not only turned down by Al Hart [an ex-bootlegger and powerful mob-
linked Hollywood figure] and his directors, they were practically thrown out of the office,"
Witwer told Summers. "And Murchison said, 'If those fellas won’t deal with me, we’ll sic
old J. Edgar on them.' And Hoover sent two FBI agents to call on Hart. I heard this from
the agents themselves afterwards. And then Hart sold." Summers also quotes Witwer
regarding other mobsters Hoover associated with during racing season at Del Charro.
They included Art Samish, a notorious Sacramento lobbyist who worked for California’s
mobbed-up liquor industry. One racketeer left Hoover a bottle of pre-Prohibition whiskey
as a present, according to Summers. Another guest with mob ties was a wildcatter and
fellow gambler from Houston. "My office faced the swimming pool, and one of the agents
was in there with me one evening," Witwer told Summers. "He looked out the window —
we had torches by the pool at night — and he saw the wildcatter, and he said, 'Allan,
what's he doing here? D'you know who he is?' And I said, ‘Sure.' And he said, 'I bet you
don't know. He's a partner of New Orleans Mafia boss Carlos Marcello. And I said, 'Well,
tell Hoover that! He has breakfast with him every morning.' I got a kind of shock that
Hoover would allow [the wildcatter] to be with him at all." Some said they had even seen
Marcello himself, whose various enterprises included a West Coast racing wire and
California call-girl operations, hanging around the pool at Del Charro."
*) February 4, 1993, Business Wire, 'Frontline uncovers the secrets of J. Edgar Hoover':
"''The Secret File on J. Edgar Hoover,'' also reveals how Hoover was compromised by his
wide-ranging personal contacts with the Mafia, many of them fostered by the FBI
director's obsession with racetrack betting. ''He used to place bets through (columnist
Walter) Winchell,'' said Seymour Pollack, an associate of the mobster Meyer Lansky. ''And
those bets used to be placed with Frank Costello and they were no two-dollar bets. They
ran into the hundreds and into the thousands.'' ''This was one of the reasons why Hoover
never wanted to get into investigating organized crime because organized crime
controlled the gambling industry, the bookmakers,'' said Bill Gallinaro, former senior
investigator for the New York State Crime Commission."
 *) December 1964, Anthony Lewis interview with Robert Kennedy, interview appeared in
'Robert Kennedy: His Own Words' (1988) and audio can be heard in the documentary
'Evidence of Revision: The Assassination of America': "No, I think he is dangerous. ... I
suppose every month or so he'd send somebody around to give information on somebody I
knew or a member of my family or allegations in connection with myself. So that it would
be clear whether it was right or wrong-that he was on top of all of these things and
received all of this information. He would do this also, I think, to find out what my
reaction to it would be. ... I knew he didn't like me. He is rather a psycho and I used to
keep his ego up. We used to arrange for him every two or three months to have lunch
along with the president."
*) November 22, 1993 , Newsweek, 'The real cover-up': "Although he had been in power
for four decades, Hoover was worried about his job. He had heard, from reliable sources,
that Kennedy was thinking of sacking him. Hoover hated the Kennedys. He deplored their
glamour and their philanderings (which he knew about because the FBI bugged their
phones), and was infuriated by their lack of deference to him. That afternoon, when
Hoover reported the death of the president to the attorney general, "he was not quite as
excited as if he were reporting the fact that he found a communist on the faculty of
Howard University," Bobby Kennedy later recalled."
*) December 25, 2008, Atlantic Free Press, 'Time To Strike Hoover's Name Off FBI
Headquarters': "That Hoover was put in charge of the investigation into the murder of Rev.
King is incredible as he must be regarded as one of the prime suspects for Kings
assassination. Hoover despised King to the point of madness. Along with a tape recording
made from bugging his hotel room, Hoover sent King a letter that called King a dissolute,
abnormal moral imbecile and warned, King, like all frauds, your end is approaching. The
letter repeated the phrase you are done over and over and urged King to commit suicide:
There is but one way out for you. You better take it before your filthy, abnormal fraudulent
self is bared to the nation. Hoover even sent a copy of a hotel room tape recording to
Kings office, where it was read by his wife. The day after Kings murder, Hoover enjoyed
himself at the race track, just as he did on the days immediately following the
assassinations of President Kennedy and his brother, Robert, the Democratic Senator
from New York. His hatred for RFK, the former Attorney General and his one-time boss,
was such that, according to Hack, Hoover timed a press release announcing the capture of
James Earl Ray for the King murder to be issued during Kennedys funeral! "
 *) May 10, 1976, Newsweek, 'Inquest on Intelligence' [Church Committee]: "The FBI, for
example, spent 25 years searching in vain for Communist influence in the National
Association for the Advancement of Colored People, launched an infiltration of the
women's liberation movement and drew list after list of political critics and activists
(including author Norman Mailer) to be detained in case of national crisis. ... Pressure:
"Too many people have been spied upon by too many government agencies and too much
information has been collected," said the report, which noted that over the last twenty
years the FBI alone had conducted nearly 1 million domestic security investigations
resulting in 500,000 permanent files but not one prosecution for subversion since 1957. In
some cases, the probes were prompted by political pressure from Presidents since
Franklin Roosevelt; Dwight Eisenhower received political intelligence on such obvious
non-threats as Eleanor Roosevelt, Bernard Baruch and Supreme Court Justice William O.
Douglas. The vague standards for surveillance secretly set by the agencies themselves also
led to widespread investigation-and often harassment-of citizens simply on the basis of
their political beliefs and life-styles. ... The Church committee also proposed barring
intimidation of citizens such agencies as the IRS, which focused special audits on activits,
and the FBI-which used its COINTELPRO techniques to try to discredit Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr. Disseminating information to undercut a person's reputation, job or marriage
would be barred by law rather than by the consciences of intelligence officials. "Never
once did I hear anybody, including myself, raise the question: 'Is this . . . lawful, is it legal,
is it ethical or moral?'" former FBI official William C. Sullivan told the panel."
*) January 12, 1975, Chicago Tribune, 'CIA: Our spies were spying on us': "In documents
turned over to the Senate Watergate committee last year, the agency admitted employing
Lee R. Pennington as a domestic agent and dispatching him to the home of James
McCord, Watergate burglar and former CIA man. Pennington helped McCord's wife burn
documents linking McCord to the agency. Howard Osborne, then chief of CIA security,
sought to mask the existence of Pennington who sources said had "been doing CIA work
on Capitol Hill." The CIA tried to trick the FBI into believing Pennington was someone
else. Osborne retired. "Sure Howard [Osborne] employed domestic agents," a CIA friend
said. "He had one of the biggest responsibilities at the agency. There were a lot more
*) January 13, 1975, Newsweek, 'Blue-Ribbon Treatment For the CIA': "Meanwhile, the
disclosures continued. New York Times reporter Seymour M. Hersh, who broke the first
story of the CIA's domestic intrusions, turned up one of the agency's former undercover
agents in New York who claimed to have followed and photographed student antiwar
demonstrators and to have taken part in break-ins and wiretaps to keep tabs on them. ...
The simmering scandal in the Central Intelligence Agency boiled hotter last week, and
Gerald Ford moved to cool it by naming a "blue ribbon" panel to investigate the charges
that the CIA's domestic snooping had violated its charter. There was still no clear
documentation that the excesses were as massive or as illegal as first charged by The New
York Times, but new disclosures kept trickling out and more light than ever before was
was being focused on the super-secret agency. The panel, made up of seven aristocrats
and one labor leader for balance, is to be headed by Vice President Nelson Rockefeller -
his first assignment in his new job. ... 'Cover': As explained by CIA sources and outside
investigators, many agency proprietaries were developed over the years to provide
"cover" for agents on foreign assignments. They included airlines, public-relations firms,
private security services, even travel publications such - at one time - as the Fodor
guidebooks, it was reported last week. Agents also infiltrated existing U.S. organizations
such as labor unions and the National Student Association. While that practice was
supposedly terminated after the revelations of the mid-'60s, some sources said the agency
had withdrawn only from groups that had been compromised. Beyond that, the CIA
regularly lends agents to other arms of government - the Secret Service and Drug
Enforcement Administration, for example - and it generally enjoys the sympathy of agency
alumni (some perhaps still on the payroll) working in other critical positions. For
example, NEWSWEEK learned, the Assistant Postmaster General in charge of domestic-
mail surveillance went directly there from the CIA. ... Most prominent of these was James
J. Angleton, chief of counterintelligence, who resigned a fortnight ago after being linked
to the illegal domestic surveillance (NEWSWEEK, Jan. 6). Last week, Angleton's three top
aides at CIA also resigned, raising even more questions about the section's past activities.
Entries: Angleton and his aides had not been solely responsible for CIA excesses in
domestic surveillance. NEWSWEEK learned that at least some of the questionable conduct
was attributable to the agency's Office of Security, whose former director, Howard
Osborne, also retired suddenly last year - reportedly after some of his Congressional
testimony proved disturbing to Colby. His section was responsible for the security of CIA
buildings, personnel and records, and also operated as the agency's internal police force -
making literally thousands of investigators of citizens who came into contact with the CIA
through employment applications or proprietary organizations.It was the security office
that made one of the illegal entries to which the CIA admits - to recover classified
documents that veteran agent Hans Tofte had carelessly left around his Washington home.
Under the Directorate of Operations, an agency euphemism for clandestine services and
"dirty tricks," are two units besides Angleton's whose domestic activities could easily cross
the line of legality. One is the Domestic Operations Division, ostensibly responsible
mainly for recruiting and for interviewing travelers returned from abroad. Actually, this
division has also been infiltrating outside groups, sotting up agency proprietaries or
fronts and keeping track of most citizens with whom its agents came into contact. Another
center of domestic activity is Division D (formerly called Staff D), which handles
intelligence relating to communications. That includes "bag jobs" aimed at getting at
getting foreign diplomatic codes and some opening of mail to and from U.S. citizens. In
San Diego last week, former CIA staffer Mel Crain - now a political-science professor -
said he operated under Staff D authority for such a mail-opening operation in the late
1950s. Mail from U.S. citizens to countries behind the Iron Curtain was scientifically
opened, copied and resealed without a trace, Crain said. The CIA was reportedly
prompted to take on increasingly broad domestic responsibilities in the 1960s as
Presidents Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon grew increasingly dissatisfied with the work of J.
Edgar Hoover's FBI. The big break came in 1970 over an incident in which the CIA
refused to tell Hoover the name of an FBI agent who had given the CIA some useful
information. In a rage, Hoover abruptly abolished a seven-man liaison office through
which the FBI had traditionally dealt with the larger U.S. intelligence community. Slack:
That left the agency more on its own than ever. Without the FBI to handle the domestic
end of counterespionage investigations, for example, Angleton relied more heavily on the
CIA Office of Security and perhaps the Domestic Operations Division. Some sources said
he took up the slack with a special 50-man unit within his own CI section. That unit, which
apparently dated to 1968, was directed by career intelligence officer Richard Ober, now a
staffer at the National Security Council (though still on the CIA payroll, he concedes). And
it was Ober who was originally named as the man responsible for briefing former CIA
director Richard Helms on the progress of the domestic-surveillance program, which
reportedly flourished under Helm's administration. Helms, now the ambassador to Iran,
was sure to face strenuous questioning on the whole controversy. Back in the U.S. last
week for home leave after a brief vacation in Europe, he was quickly summoned to a
breakfast with Secretary of State Kissinger and then met with President Ford. Helms was
also expected to testify on Capitol Hill, where the question of perjury has been raised in
connection with his numerous denials of illegal CIA domestic surveillance. And some
suspected that he might well lose his diplomatic post before long."

February 1973 that it had found “significant discrepancies” between Helms’s testimony
and data ITT had supplied. On that same day, Theodore Shackley (Chief, Western
Hemisphere Division, DP) took the first step to limit damage to the Agency. He
recommended to DCI Schlesinger that the Agency should work [through Senators Stennis
or Symington who "could be persuaded" to agree to a "controlled appearance" for the
DCI before the Multinational Corporations Subcommitte] … Two days later, on 23
February 1973, Agency officers began quiet efforts with the help of Senator Henry

Chile, and Richard Helms. Jackson offered his protective assistance in a remarkable
backstage meeting he had with Ted Shackley and CIA Congressional liaison chief John
Maury the next day. … [Jackson made several suggestions on how to protect the CIA, as

protection." Shackley noted that Senator Jackson, who had been "extremely helpful,"
believed that it was "essential" to prevent the establishing of any procedure that could call
upon CIA to testify before a wide variety of Congressional committees. Following that
meeting, Shackley and Maury at once briefed Colby, who was then CIA's Executive
Director, and Tom Keramessines, the DDP. DCI Schlesinger then asked Senator Jackson
to set the wheels in motion for Senator McClellan to call a special meeting of his
Oversight Committee. Three weeks later, on 13 March, CIA’s senatorial friends arranged

doesn't have any ulterior motives, but his information seems to be reliable.
*) January 4, 2002, Gene Wheaton, an intelligence insider and whistleblower since Iran-
Contra, during an interview of Matt Ehling on Declassified Radio: "At that black tie party
at the Palm Restaurant on the 4th of December in 1985, I was specifically invited by Neil
Livingstone [American Security Council strategy board in the 1980s, with James Angleton
[his mentor], Ray Cline, General Vernon Walters, General John Singlaub; a later close
associate of James Woolsey] and to come in and meet Ollie North, and it was a party to
promote Neil Livingstone's book, called "Fighting Back", and the subtitle was "The War
on Terrorism". He and a State Department/CIA spook by the name of Terry Arnold wrote
that book together and this was the coming-out party for the book, and all the covert
operations community, the real snake eaters, were going to be there with black ties. Ollie
North was there and Bud McFarland [Robert McFarlane, another close associate of
James Woolsey later on] and I don't know, 75 or 100 people in black ties, having drinks
and dinner and hobnobbing and they felt like ... the atmosphere at that party was one of
'We are the shadow government running the United States.'... The covert operations
subculture and the pyramid system of it is difficult for the average citizen to understand.
And I understand it because I saw it, but it’s awfully hard to describe. This stuff goes back
to the scandals of the 70s ... of Watergate and Richard Helms, the CIA director, being
convicted by Congress of lying to Congress, of Ted Shackley and Tom Clines and Dick
Secord and a group of them being forced into retirement as a result of the scandal over
Edmond P. Wilson’s training of Libyan terrorists in conjunction with these guys, and
moving C-4 explosives to Libya. They decided way back when, '75-'76, during the Pike
and Church Committee hearings, that the Congress was their enemy. They felt that the
government had betrayed them and that they were the real heroes in this country and that
the government became their enemy. In the late 70s, in fact, after Gerry Ford lost the
election in ’76 to Jimmy Carter, and then these guys became exposed by Stansfield Turner
and crowd for whatever reason ... there were different factions involved in all this stuff,
and power plays ... Ted Shackley and Vernon Walters and Frank Carlucci and Ving West
and a group of these guys used to have park-bench meetings in the late 70s in McClean,
Virginia so nobody could overhear they conversations. They basically said, "With our
expertise at placing dictators in power," I’m almost quoting verbatim one of their
comments, "why don’t we treat the United States like the world’s biggest banana republic
and take it over?" And the first thing they had to do was to get their man in the White
House, and that was George Bush. Reagan never really was the president. He was the
front man. They selected a guy that had charisma, who was popular, and just a good old
boy, but they got George Bush in there to actually run the White House. They’d let Ronald
Reagan and Nancy out of the closet and let them make a speech and run them up the
flagpole and salute them and put them back in the closet while these spooks ran the White
House. They made sure that George Bush was the chairman of each of the critical
committees involving these covert operations things. This crowd really believes that the
unwashed masses are ignorant, that we are people who are not capable of governing
ourselves, that we need this elitist group to control the country, and the world -- these
guys have expanded. They look at the United States not as a country, not in any kind of
patriotic mode now, but they look on it as a state within a world that they control. And
that’s this attitude that they have. They’re not unlike any other megalomaniac in the
world. They’re nutty as fruitcake, but they’ve got distinguished gray hair, three-piece dark
suits and they carry briefcases, and they’ll stand up and make speeches just as articulate
as anybody in the world, but they don’t socialize and function outside their own little
clique. My experience with them is that they could be certified as criminally insane and
put away in a rubber room and have the key thrown away. That’s how dangerous they are.
But they’re powerful, and they’re educated. And that makes them twice as dangerous. And
that’s basically what’s running the world right now. If I had not been part of this, and
hadn’t seen it first hand, I would not believe a word I’m saying."

*) July 2006, Vanity Fair, ' The War They Wanted, the Lies They Needed': "The first took
place in 1980, when Francesco Pazienza, a charming and sophisticated Propaganda Due
operative at the highest levels of SISMI, allegedly teamed up with an American named
Michael Ledeen, a Rome correspondent for The New Republic. According to The Wall
Street Journal, Pazienza said he first met Ledeen that summer, through a SISMI agent in
New York who was working under the cover of a U.N. job. ... A 1985 investigation by
Jonathan Kwitny in The Wall Street Journal reported that the New Republic article was
part of a larger disinformation scam run by Ledeen and SISMI to tilt the election, and that
“Billy Carter wasn’t the only one allegedly getting money from a foreign government.”
According to Pazienza, Kwitny reported, Michael Ledeen had received at least $120,000
from SISMI in 1980 or 1981 for his work on Billygate [with Arnaud de Borchgrave] and
other projects. Ledeen even had a coded identity, Z-3, and had money sent to him in a
Bermuda bank account, Pazienza said. Ledeen told the Journal that a consulting firm he
owned, I.S.I., worked for SISMI and may have received the money. He said he did not
recall whether he had a coded identity. ... Pazienza was subsequently convicted in
absentia on multiple charges, including having used extortion and fraud to obtain
embarrassing facts about Billy Carter. Ledeen was never charged with any crime, but he
was cited in Pazienza’s indictment, which read, “With the illicit support of the SISMI and
in collaboration with the well-known American ‘Italianist’ Michael Ledeen, Pazienza
succeeded in extorting, also using fraudulent means, information … on the Libyan
business of Billy Carter, the brother of the then President of the United States.” In an
interview with Vanity Fair, Ledeen denied having worked with Pazienza or Propaganda
Due as part of a disinformation scheme. “I knew Pazienza,” he explained. “I didn’t think
P-2 existed. I thought it was all nonsense—typical Italian fantasy.” He added, “I’m not
aware that anything in [the Billygate] story turned out to be false.” Asked if he had
worked with SISMI, Ledeen told Vanity Fair, “No,” then added, “I had a project with
SISMI—one project.” He described it as a simple “desktop” exercise in 1979 or 1980, in
which he taught Italian intelligence how to deal with U.S. officials on extradition matters.
His fee, he said, was about $10,000."

Woolsey Quit Hawkish Jewish Security Think Tank': "The Jewish Institute for National
Security Affairs recently terminated the second-highest-ranking staff member, who has
been with the organization for more than three decades. The move, a culmination of
months of internal struggle, prompted several conservative icons to quit the group’s
advisory board in protest. Among those turning their back on JINSA were former CIA
director James Woolsey, former top Pentagon official Richard Perle and neoconservative
figure Michael Ledeen. ... JINSA, was founded in 1976, three years after Israel’s Yom
Kippur War; one of its main goals was to ensure strong military cooperation between the
United States and Israel by educating the American defense establishment on Israel’s
strategic importance. ... News of JINSA’s troubled internal relations surfaced January 10
with the announcement that Shoshana Bryen, until recently senior director for security
policy, had joined the Jewish Policy Center, an up-and-coming conservative Jewish think
tank associated with the Republican Jewish Coalition. The statement marked the end of a
months-long battle between Bryen and her bosses. Bryen had been at JINSA for 32 years
and, according to a prominent lay leader, was considered its “public face.” She served as
JINSA’s executive director from 1981 to 1991 and is credited with transforming the
organization from a small think tank into a player in the Washington conservative scene.
She later took charge of issues relating to defense policies and was the main author of the
group’s reports and position papers. Bryen’s blunt analysis of the Middle East gave her a
reputation as a hawkish straight shooter, short on nuance and willing to take on the
conventional wisdom. For instance, she opposed talks with the Palestine Liberation
Organization even when negotiations were endorsed by a Republican administration; even
now, defying much of the rhetoric of supporters of Benjamin Netanyahu’s government, she
thinks an Israeli attack on Iran is unlikely. It is this style that, according to a key JINSA
lay leader, got Bryen in trouble. Accounts provided to the Forward by board members and
individuals close to the organization, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the
personal nature of the dispute, portrayed a tense relationship between Bryen and JINSA’s
president, David Ganz, a successful Boston businessman who is also the group’s largest
single donor. The two have sparred over issues relating to JINSA’s future and the focus of
its programs. Officials involved with the group said that Ganz viewed Bryen’s direct style
and her open opposition to decisions made by the board as problematic."

staff. As a result, Powell strongly recommended the ex-fighter pilot for the top CIA job
and lobbied on his behalf on Capitol Hill and reportedly with President Clinton. The
selection of Carns broke a stalemate between the White House and Capitol Hill over
filling the CIA job. After Deputy Defense Secretary John Deutch turned down the post,
Clinton settled on Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick, who had impressed the White
House with her management skills at the Justice Department. But, the source says, Sen.
Arlen Specter, chairman of the panel that must approve the nomination, advised the White
House against sending up her name. Yet Specter's own candidate, Maurice Greenberg,

 *) 2004, Daniel Hopsicker, 'Welcome to Terror Land: Mohamed Atta & the 9-11 Cover-
Up in Florida' (digital version): "Not too many suckers are friends with the President of
the United States. [Wally] Hilliard was friends with Bill Clinton. He kept a picture taken
of himself with Clinton prominently displayed in his $3 million Naples, Florida home.
"Wally knew Clinton well," confirmed a former employee. "Clinton called Wally a couple
of times when I was there." ... We had soon confirmed Villada's assertion: Hilliard's Lear
jet had been involved in a major bust in Orlando."
*) 2004, Daniel Hopsicker, 'Welcome to Terror Land: Mohamed Atta & the 9-11 Cover-
Up in Florida' (digital version): "Less than three weeks after Mohammed Atta and Marwan
Al- Shehhi began flying lessons on July 6, 2000, a Lear jet belonging to the true owner of
Huffman Aviation, financier Wallace J. Hilliard, 70, of Naples, Florida, was seized by
Federal Agents at the Orlando Executive Airport after they discovered 43-pounds of
heroin onboard. ... We first learned of the heroin seizure during an interview with John
Villada, an aviation executive in Naples who was intimately associated with Dekkers' and
Hilliard's various aviation businesses. He managed the firm's dozen or so jets, he told us,
and he, too, had been shocked and amazed at the casual and arrogant way the two men
dealt with various federal officials and agencies, like the FAA. Dekkers forged Villada's
signature on a repair order, he told us, stating required repair work on the helicopter had
been completed. When he discovered it, Villada said, he was legally compelled to report
the violation to the FAA. "When Rudi was reported to the FAA for violations, an FAA guy
came out and sat us down and said: 'I suggest you back out of this.' I couldn't believe it. I
called the FAA to report a violation and was warned to leave him alone." "Villada
dropped a bombshell. "After Wally's plane was impounded with the heroin and his pilots
had machine guns stuck in their faces, the DEA came to visit our maintenance facility and
Wally shouted out to me -- right in front of the DEA guy -'Make sure all the heroin and
cocaine gets hidden!"' "That was in August of 2000. When I found out later that the DEA
wouldn't let him have his plane back, I knew why." Hilliard's mock warning to hide the
drugs, explained Villada, had been Wally's way of telling the DEA how little he thought of
them. The DEA hadn't forgotten. Villada seemed surprised we hadn't heard of the bust of
Wally's plane. ... We had soon confirmed Villada's assertion: Hilliard's Lear jet had been
involved in a major bust in Orlando. ... Financier Hilliard ran money-losing flight
schools. Now we discovered he leased jets to drug smugglers too. Major drug
smugglers. ... Affidavits later filed by the machine-gun toting DEA agents who surrounded
the Lear jet indicated Hilliard's company's involvement went much deeper than anyone
was willing to acknowledge publicly. "It was just blatant," said a manager who worked
there at the time. "That same plane flew that same run thirty or forty times, ferrying the
same people. And they always paid cash for the rental! The red flags could not have been
raised any higher." We confirmed that Hilliard's Lear jet made frequent round-trips to
South America with an official at Executive Jet Service, the facility which serviced it at
Orlando Executive Airport. He said the plane made weekly down-and-back runs to
Venezuela. It was what's called a 'milk run.' Three weeks after the Lear was impounded by
the DEA, Hilliard asked for it back. In a motion filed in the U.S. District Court in
Orlando, he argued that he was an 'innocent owner' unwittingly duped by a known
individual. ... We discovered that knowledge about Diego Levine [the pilot of Walliard's
plane] was considered, at least in some quarters, highly sensitive. But eventually, from
aviation sources in southwest Florida, some information surfaced ... Like Dekkers and
Wally, Diego Levine had a 'hall pass' from the FAA, which might explain his casual
attitude while being busted. "One time in Miami, Diego got busted because he had no
pilot's license," related a Naples aviation insider. "He was a terrific pilot, but he just
hadn't ever bothered to get his license. He should have been in trouble. But he said, 'the
FAA lost my file,' and -- as a courtesy -- the FAA administered a 4-hour test on the spot
and let him go on his way." Diego had some juice. What we heard about Diego: He flies a
huge Gulfstream jet that looks like the interior of a Ritz Carlton Hotel. .. His father owns a
big furniture manufacturing plant in Venezuela ... Diego was trying to buy a Cheyenne
(airplane) for the Venezuelan Air Force ... Diego's day job was chief pilot for Venezuela's
Air Force One. When he wasn't arrested flying Hilliard's Lear jet, was it just dumb luck?
That's too absurd. No, what we are looking at is protected drug trafficking. CIA-approved.
Probably dressed up as a 'controlled delivery.' No wonder information about him was
considered 'sensitive.' Whoever he was, Diego Levine was no amateur free-lancer. Diego's
calls to the FAA got promptly returned. Diego is "home team." ... Wally Hilliard was
involved in two ways, Florida records showed, as the principal of Plane 1 Leasing, which
owned the Lear jet in volved, and as a partner in American Jet Charters LLC, the charter
company that leased the Lear from Plane 1 Leasing. Hilliard was a partner and co-owner,
along with Diego Levine and a man named Mark Shubin. "They obviously weren't even
bothering to hide what they were doing," noted one observer. Yet despite being caught
red-handed Wally Hilliard claimed in court filings to have been an "innocent owner." On
November 3, 2000, Federal Judge James Glazebrook denied Hilliard's motion. Yet there
are no public documents explaining why. "Wally took a big hit on that one," stated
someone at the Naples Airport. "The DEA was not going to let him have that plane back."
"The DEA was planning on adding it to their Border Patrol fleet," confirmed a spokesman
for the Lear jet's current owner, East Coast Jets of Allentown, PA. They bought the plane,
he told us, after an insurance company, which insured it against seizure for the lender,
successfully wrenched it back from the DEA after Hilliard had been removed from the
picture. *** Then we made an amazing discovery. Wally Hilliard got his Lear jet from the
same people who supplied the Lear jet -- two decades earlier -- flown by famous drug
smuggler and CIA agent Barry Seal. Federal records showed Hilliard got his Lear jet
from World Jet, Inc., owned by the drug smuggling Whittington brothers, Don and Bill, of
Fort Lauderdale, FL, who in their heyday in the early 1980s had been historic figures in
the rise of the trade, commanding fleets of fishing trawlers, sailboats, power boats, and
jets. ... Until his assassination in 1986 at the reported behest of then-Vice President
George H. W: Bush, Barry Seal was a close associate of Iran Contra figures like Frank
Moss and Dietrich Reinhardt, who, as we have seen, are still "active," in the middle of all
kinds of intrigue at the Charlotte County Airport. ... ." In his office in a hangar at the Fort
Lauderdale Executive Airport, Mark Shubin came across as a pleasant and highly
intelligent man in his later fifties ... The true story was that Shubin's father was indeed a
KGB Colonel imprisoned after being caught by his own government spying for the United
States. He and his family, including young Mark, had been 'traded out' of Russia in the spy
exchange involving Francis Gary Powers, the pilot of a U-2 shot down over Russia in a
famous incident in 1960. After settling in America, the KGB Colonel's son grew up to
become a CIA pilot flying U-2's over Russia, where his native Russian language skills
proved useful. We were already well into spy lore, and we'd barely sat down. "Wally was
manipulated by somebody with a lot of power," said Mark Shubin. "He was blackmailed.
Rudi was the one person who knew what was going on.""
*) August 2, 2000, Orlando Sentinel, 'Record-setting heroin seizure nets 30 pounds': "In
the largest seizure of the drug in Central Florida, about 30 pounds of South American
heroin with a street value of several million dollars has been confiscated in Orlando. It's
perhaps the largest find of its kind in the southeastern United States in recent years,
officials said Tuesday. The drugs arrived last week aboard a private Learjet at Orlando
Executive Airport. The plane originated in Venezuela and stopped in Fort Lauderdale
before landing in Orlando, with New York as its final destination. A federal grand jury in
Orlando on Tuesday indicted five people in connection with the seizure. Three additional
suspects were arrested in New York. "It confirms the sad fact that a massive amount of
heroin is coming through Central Florida," U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration
special agent Brent Eaton said Tuesday. ... After Darwich's arrest, DEA agents were
waiting when the Learjet landed at the airport on July 25, Eaton said. Passengers Edgar
Javier Valles Diaz, 51, and Neyra Aracely Rivas Casanova, 48, both of Caracas,
Venezuela, were arrested after 13 kilograms of heroin were found hidden in the soles of
tennis shoes stashed in their luggage, Eaton said. The pilot was not arrested because of a
lack of evidence. Five kilograms were destined for Orlando and eight were scheduled to
continue to New York, officials said."

Some readers of ISGP have wondered what kind of improvements can be made to the present
political system in order to prevent the kind of conspiracies described on this
website from happening in the future.
All that I can say for sure is that politics in every
country should be restructured in such a way as to
primarily give power to the educated middle classes
and to prevent the formation of elites in the military,
politics or in intelligence circles.
There are ways to achieve this, but designing a new
political model is not something one does on a
Sunday afternoon. A balance has to be found
between economy, population numbers, social
programs, labor unions, education, freedom of the
press, spirituality, national security, national
interests, and undoubtedly various other factors.
Some of my own personal political ideas have been taken up in the site's FAQ, but for the rest
ISGP will stick to explaining the unknown aspects of the existing western political model. The
idea is that if enough persons become aware of the contents of this site, improvements to the
political system should come naturally.
If the site will ever generate a readership large enough to effect change is doubtful, but hopefully
the information gets spread more and more over the decades - until maybe one day a critical
momentum is reached. I believe it's what they call "planting a seed," or "the ripple effect."
