Cuba, Castro, Vesco

In 1987, in the US trial of Carlos Lehder Rivas, Robert L. Vesco was identified as his co-conspirator. Lehder was charged with smuggling 3.3 tons of cocaine into north Florida and Georgia from Colombia through the Bahamas from 1978 to 1980.

Charles Kehm testified on his conversation with Vesco.
Continental Airlines pilot, Eben Mann, admitted making 3 cocaine-smuggling flights for Lehder to Colombia in 1977-78 for $75,000 in cash.
Radio announcer, Russ O'Hara, said he began working for Lehder in 1978, as co-pilot on drug flights made by John Finley Robinson and Jack Carlton Reed.

The witnesses received immunity for their testimony: https://www.nytimes.com/1987/12/11/us/fu...trial.html

Vesco bought IOS in 1970 for less than $5 million, gaining control of an estimated $400 million in funds.

After he escaped the US to evade the charges brought against him, he first settled in Costa Rica, where he invested some $11 million to become “friends” with President José Figueres.
Vesco also befriended nephew of President Richard M. Nixon, Donald A. Nixon Jr., and gave $200,000 to the Nixon campaign illegally.
After Vesco started a machine guns factory, which included President Figueres’s son as a partner, a public and political outcry ensued, and in 1978 he was forced to leave for the Bahamas.
In the years that followed he hop scotched to several countries, including stops in Antigua and Nicaragua, before settling in Cuba.

Vesco eventually became an enemy of the Castro government, when he was accused of defrauding a state-run biotechnology laboratory run by Fidel Castro’s nephew, Antonio Fraga Castro, and sentenced to 13 years. This was about the production of the miracle medicine Trioxidal that would cure cancer, AIDS, arthritis and even the common cold.
I couldn’t find more information on Trioxidal…

After serving most of his time in a private cell, Vesco was quietly released in 2005 and continued to live a “simple” life.

Vesco died 23 November 2017, without ever facing charges in the US for crimes that included securities fraud, drug trafficking and political bribery: http://www.robertnovell.com/robert-vesco...h-16-2018/

In 1991, convicted cocaine trafficker Carlos Lehder testified during Gen. Manuel A. Noriega's drug trial that Robert Vesco helped him ply the drug trade in Cuba and the Bahamas.
Lehder testified that the Cubans directed cocaine traffic through the Central American nation with the complicity of the Sandinista government.

Lehder stated that he first visited Cuba in 1981 to meet with Vesco and Raul Castro (Fidel’s brother) and he donated a plane to Raul Castro as part of a deal to allow the cartel to ship drugs through Cuba.
In 1982, Lehder became the cartel's "connection" for shipping drugs through Cuba.

Lehder testified that in 1984 he saw Vesco in Nicaragua with Manuel "Redbeard" Pineiro, the head of Cuba's intelligence service: http://articles.baltimoresun.com/1991-11...uba-lehder

Fidel Castro's former bodyguard, Juan Reinaldo Sanchez, has also accused Fidel Castro of being involved in drug trafficking.
See Castro and Juan Reinaldo Sanchez shaking hands.
[Image: horstextefidelcastro3-indd.jpg?quality=9...=all&w=680]

Sanchez claims that he once was told by Castro to “don’t record” an interview of several hours. Out of curiosity Sanchez put on the headphones to listen in on their conversation.
Gen. José Abrantes asked for Fidel’s authorisation to bring a Cuban “lanchero” (someone who smuggles drugs by boat) living in the US, as the “lanchero” would pay $75,000.
Fidel agreed with this scheme.

In 1986, Castro founded the MC Department (for Moneda Covertible: convertible currency), which traded in illegal and legal goods for “hard currency” from third parties, principally Panama.

Fidel used a warning light to alert the president of the court discreetly, whenever a session should be interrupted.
It has been rumoured that Gen. Arnaldo Ochoa’s death sentence and José Abrantes’ sentence to 20 years in prison were over drugs. After 2 years of detention, in 1991, Abrantes died of a reported “heart attack”: https://nypost.com/2015/05/03/former-bod...uble-life/

1001 Club

Since I’ve been investigating drugs and money laundering regularly members of the 1001 Club appear to be involved. The 1001 Club was founded by, co-founder of the Bilderberg Group and WWF, Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands supposedly to raise funds for the eugenics WWF.

The 1001 Club has included several members of Royal families (including Bernhard’s friend, Prince Philip, husband of Queen Elizabeth) and some controversial (other) dictators.
Several members of the Rothschild and Rockefeller families got together in the 1001 Club.
Also the following major players in Dope Inc. were part of the 1001 Club.

Henrik Kruger - The Great Heroin Coup; Richard Nixon

In this post a book by the Danish Henrik Kruger.
The value of this book to this thread is that it takes a different perspective than the other books I’ve posted about. Kruger starts his investigation in France, and winds up in South America and the US.
Maybe the most important information, is that also disgraced US President Richard Nixon was connected to the mob. I´ll add some information on Nixon after my summary of the book.

There is at least one aspect that I disagree with; Kruger claims that until the beginning of the 1970s Marseille, France was the biggest heroin exporter with the Turkish poppy production. As far as I can tell, Turkey was never near the largest poppy producer in the world but was an important entry point for transporting heroin into Europe...
According to Kruger, the Marseille heroin monopoly by the Corsican Mafia, mainly used Paraguay to transfer the heroin. It was replaced by the CIA-backed monopoly of South East Asia heroin exported to the US through Mexico.

Kruger starts his investigation with the French crook Christian David.
When David was locked up in prison; 1961 he was released after making a deal with Pierre Lemarchand to join the terror organisation of French intelligence agency SAC.
In 1965, David was recruited by French intelligence agency SDECE: and sent to Africa and South America, for activities that included murders.
In 1965, David was involved in the assassination of Ben Barka in Paris, who was a political enemy of Moroccan King Hassan.

David claimed Antoine Guerini told him he hired Lucien Sartri, who recruited 2 Frenchmen, to kill John F. Kennedy.
This was confirmed by Michel Nicoli, who named the other 2 snipers as Francois Chiappe and Jean-Paul Angeletti.

In 1971, 29 drug refineries in South East Asia were dismantled, including one that was disguised as a Pepsi Cola plant, financed with USAID money.

In 1975, Sam Gianca was extradited to Mexico, from where he was sent to France to face trial. En route to France he was murdered by US agents.

In 1975, Alberto Sicilia-Falcon arrested, who claimed that CIA had $260 million on Swiss accounts for covert operations:

The FBI destabilised Mexican government, after President Echevaria refused loans from World Bank and IMF.

In 1976, convicted cocaine and marijuana smuggler Kenneth Gordon Burnstine would testify against Mitch Werbell III (who was in business with John Singlaub). Before he could; he died in a plane crash, and Werbell was acquitted.

Juan Cesar Restoy tried to get his freedom and hundreds of thousands dollars by threatening to expose a close friend of Richard Nixon as a drug trafficker; Restoy was shot and killed by narcotics agents.
Santo Trafficante Jr. knew Jack Ruby, and was an associate of Meyer Lansky and Jim Hoffa, who supported Richard Nixon.
Nixon was involved with real estate firms that laundered Lanksy’s money.
IOS millionaire Robert Vesco, who handled Lansky’s money, was a friend of Nixon.

There is relatively large amount information added since 1980.
Henrik Kruger also wrote the following book (I haven´t found a freely viewable version, here are some excerpts) – The Great Heroin Coup: Drugs, Intelligence and International Fascism (1980): http://quixoticjoust.blogspot.nl/2013/12...er-14.html
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


In March 1985, Capital Cities Communications (formerly named Mary Carter Paint Company) bought the giant ABC network.

Some of the major players in Capital Cities are:
William Casey, former CIA director, was a founder in 1954. Casey was also a major shareholder.
Tom Dewey, former New York governor and twice Republican candidate for president, was also a founder.
Tom Murphy, also a director of Texaco and IBM, was Capital Cities’ president in 1985.

In 1959, Capital Cities was purchased by an investment group that included Lowell Thomas, Thomas Dewey and John Crosby, who were also prominent in Resorts International.
The late James Crosby (son of John Crosby) was a close friend of Nixon; he donated $100,000 to his campaign in 1968. James would become chief executive of Mary Carter/Resorts International and his sister would become Tom Murphy's wife.

James Crosby played host to the (then) recently deposed Shah of Iran at Resorts International's hotel on Paradise Island in the Bahamas.
James Crosby was also a friend of Charles “Bebe” Rebozo, who was also in business with Santo Trafficante.
See Rebozo with Nixon.

In 1968, the Mary Carter Paint Company changed its name to Capital Cities Communications and concentrated on hotels and casinos in Atlantic City and the Bahamas.
Later, it acquired Intertel, which specialised in private "security" and intelligence gathering for corporate and other clients. Some of these clients were close the CIA, including ITT, Anastasio Somoza, the Shah of Iran and Howard Hughes' empire of casinos and arms manufacturers.

Resorts International was involved with Robert Vesco and the Meyer Lansky crime syndicate: https://kennedysandking.com/articles/the...ng-company
(archived here: http://archive.is/TbK9v)


On 30 October 1978, it was reported that the principle investors of Resorts International were Meyer Lansky, Tibor Rosenbaum, William Mellon Hitchcock, David Rockefeller, and Baron Edmond de Rothschild.

In one of those strange coincidences, in 1987 Donald Trump purchased his first casino interests when he acquired 93% of the shares in Resorts International.: https://philosophyofmetrics.com/how-roth...p-freepom/

Kruger – Condor, Shackley, Olof Palme assassination

I´ve found a good 2 part article by Henrik Kruger on the circumstances surrounding the murder of Olof Palme in February 1986. It was written in 1988. It explains how drugs and money laundering finance terrorism. The most important man in this story is Theodore Shackley.
It is not only relevant to this thread, but also to false flags, Propaganda Due(P2 ): https://www.lawfulpath.com/forum/viewtop...5026#p5026


The writer introduces some “unknown” organisations that control the international drug trade, money laundering. These organisations are intertwined (most of them I had not heard of).
- Operation Condor: a terrorist organisation located in Chile affiliated with both the Chilean secret service and the CIA.
- World Finance Corporation (WFC), the gigantic banking system that was set-up in Miami by Cuban exiles to launder money and finance terrorism.
- World anti-Communist League (WACL): a terrorist supporting, fascist organisation under the guise of fighting Communism.
- Association of Former Intelligence Officers (AFIO): the intelligence agency for WACL, and in control of the CIA.
- The Enterprise: the people specialised in money laundering and financing terrorism - Ted Shackley himself, Thomas Clines, Richard Secord and Albert Hakim.

Michael Townley, for Condor, arranged a number of political murders, including Chile’s former Foreign Minister and Ambassador to the US, Orlando Letelier, by a car bomb. Townley had planned this murder with CIA trained Cuban exiles.
In 1976, Townley was in Madrid together with the Italian terrorist Stephano delle Chiaie. They weren´t successful in assassinating Olof Palme on that occasion.

Operation Condor carried out assassinations (mostly in Latin America). Condor was to a large extent supported by the CIA. In 1974, it was disclosed by an American Senate committee, that CIA agents in Latin America had instructed Condor operatives in torture methods. At the time, the CIA chief for its Latin American branch was - Theodore Shackley.
Condor´s Banzer plan (named after the Bolivian dictator) was especially brutal. It involved the torture and murder of nuns, priests and bishops, and included the assassination of El Salvadorian Archbishop Oscar Romero in 1980.
The Condor agents were supported financially by WFC, mainly by drug money. WFC laundered the money and channelled it to the death squads and Cuban exile terrorist groups in a long succession of Latin American terrorist attacks during the 1970’s.
WFC was exposed and forced to close after a police investigation in the beginning of 1979.

In 1961, Ted Shackley was already the CIA’s station chief in Miami. His closest colleagues were Thomas Clines and David Atlee Phillips. At the time Santo Trafficante was the USA’s largest narcotics importer.
Later Shackley was transferred to Laos, where he allied himself with the heroin general Vang Pao and his Meo tribes warriors.
The death campaign in Laos was controlled by Shackley. The Meo soldiers along with American Green Berets from the Special Operations Group, under the leadership of General John Singlaub, killed ten thousands of men, women and children. Singlaub had a young lieutenant working for him with the name of Oliver North, and a lieutenant major Richard Secord. All 3 would become leading figures in the Iran/Contra affair in the 1980s, and part of the “Secret team” of Ted Shackley.
The Secret team also controlled the Nugan-Hand Bank in Australia, whose main activity was weapons and narcotics transactions.

The Enterprise was led by Shackley himself, Thomas Clines, Richard Secord and Albert Hakim. These were also heavily involved in Iran/Contra.
Florida was the epicentre of large scale cocaine smuggling in connection with Iran/Contra. This involved Shackley’s people. The court case was halted by Edward Meese, Reagan’s Attorney General.
There was also a civil suit against Shackley crowd, including former WACL chief John Singlaub, for the bombing and assassination attempt on former Contra leader Eden Pastora that killed 7 people.

The Croatian fascist Miro Baresic (a.k.a. Tony Saric) made explicit death threats against Palme.
Baresic was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of the Yugoslavian ambassador to Sweden. After his associates took a plane hostage and threatened to blow up the plane with the 86 passengers aboard, the Swedish government released Baresic and 5 other imprisoned Croatians.
They flew to Spain, and in the beginning of 1974 they flew to Paraguay. In Paraguay Miro Baresic worked directly under Condor’s Paraguay chief, head of the Security Police - Pastor Coronel.

Baresic decamped to Uruguay, where he became a key operative for the Condor networks.
In 1977, Baresic (under the name Tony Saric) came to the US on a diplomatic passport and acted as chief of security for Paraguay’s embassy in Washington DC. Later US law enforcement found out Baresic’s real identity and was extradited to Sweden.
Baresic had requested for clemency. These requests were personally blocked by Palme.

When Olof Palme was murdered, Baresic was still in Swedish prison. On the day Palme was killed, Baresic was on unsupervised leave.
Yugoslavia had repeatedly and unsuccessfully pressed to have Baresic extradited. In December 1987, Miro Baresic was released and boarded a flight to his beloved Paraguay. Only after releasing him, the Swedish authorities decided they wanted to question him.

In April 1978, there was a WACL conference in Washington DC in the presence of Baresic (under the alias Tony Saric). Two Swedes were also present, Ake J. Ek and Anders Larsson, as well as the Norwegian Tor Petter Hadland.
Anders Larsson was also at this Washington conference of WACL. Larsson had good relationships with the Anti-Bolshevik Block of Nations (ABN) – a WACL umbrella organisation under.

Ake Ek had various dealings with Hadland, Larsson, Miro Baresic, and numerous other neo-Nazis.
Hadland was Erik Blucher’s right-hand man, Blucher was the leader of the Norwegian neo-Nazis. In 1981, Hadland settled in Orebro, Sweden while Blucher travelled to London. In 1983, Blucher left for Sweden (under the name Erik Olsen), where Hadland arranged an apartment for him.
When Olof Palme was killed, 4 Scandinavian WACL adherents were in Sweden. It seems strange that the Swedish authorities had no interest at all in these Scandinavians that were part of the WACL that in the past had threatened Olof Palme.

On 20 February 1986, Stieg Larsson delivered a mysterious letter with the text: “Palme Dead” (a week before Olof Palme was killed).
One month before Palme’s death, the Yugoslavian mercenary Ivan von Berchan approached Alf Karlsson of Sapo (Sweden’s intelligence agency). Von Berchan stated that a CIA agent using the name George Moran had been offered $2 million to murder Palme. He knew the CIA agent from Libya at the end of the 1970s. Both Inger Baven and the secretary confirmed that Von Berchan had warned that Palme would be assassinated.

Olof Palme supported both Cuba and Chile under Allende and later the Sandinistas in Nicaragua. This could be a motive for “neutralising” him.
A short time before his death, Palme was making arrangements to stop the Bofors arms transports to Iran. This could also be a motive: http://spitfirelist.com/news/the-assassi...lof-palme/
(archived here: http://archive.is/Jr7u3)


In 1976, Michael Townley had also been in Stockholm for the (then unsuccessful) assassination attempt of Olof Palme.

WACL’s official facade is the General Secretariat of the right-wing Moon religious movement’s building in Seoul, South Korea. WACL holds yearly official congresses and outwardly looks like a legitimate organisation.
The death squadron’s leaders were members of WACL’s Latin American branch - CAL. Among their victims were the 72 killed when a Cuban airliner exploded over Barbados in 1975. That terrorist act was planned by members of the WACL Cuban exile group, Alpha-66.

Shackley became the CIA’s chief of station in Vietnam. In 1972, he was relocated to Latin America. He became the chief of Operation Track II. Track II arranged a campaign of terror that led to Allende’s overthrow in Chile to bring Pinochet to power.
Shackley’s Cuban exiles established the World Finance Corporation banking system in Miami. It was used to launder Mafia boss Trafficante’s drug money and then channelled to Condor and Cuban exiles terror groups, like Alpha-66, Omega-7 and CORU.
The investigation into WFC was stopped by the CIA. The policeman who headed the investigation told the press that at least 28 CIA agents had worked in the WFC bank.

Shackley’s close associate, David Atlee Phillips, headed the AFIO.
Two of Shackley’s associates trained terrorists in Libya, including Frank Terpil. Terpil once explained to a journalist:
Quote:It is in reality the assholes from AFIO that run the CIA from the outside, as a shadow leadership: Ted Shackley, Phillips, Angleton, Conein...

Bofors weapons were bought through Swedish weapons dealer Karl-Erik Smitz.
The Danish ship Erria, smuggled Bofors weapons to both Iran and the Contras in South America. The Erria was owned by Dolmy Business Inc, which was controlled by Richard Secord and Albert Hakim.
The leader of Svenska Incorporated was the drug and weapons smuggler, Steven Samos. Samos was a close business partner of “the Enterprise” and deeply involved in Contragate.
Planes of St. Lucia Airways often transported Bofors weapons. St. Lucia was operated by “the Enterprise” and directed with the assistance of Oliver North.

Former high level US military intelligence officer Gene Wheaton was stationed in Iran during the late 1970s.
Wheaton and 2 colleagues, came across the illegal transactions of Shackley’s team and prepared a report on these activities. When Wheaton’s 2 colleagues were on their way to Washington with the report, they were conveniently murdered, and the report disappeared. Wheaton lists 17 murdered people by “the Enterprise”. There are many more, like Barry Seal and Don Arnow, who both had close connections to cocaine smuggler George Morales.

Kevin Mulcahy died the day before he would have given testimony in the lawsuit against the narco-banking system WFC.
Another chief witness, Steven Carr, was found dead of a drug overdose: http://spitfirelist.com/for-the-record/f...me-part-2/
