    Since 1994, British legislation gives its secret agents the right to break the law, as long as they have the permission of a “Secretary of State”.
    This has enabled the British intelligence services to participate in a wide range of illegal activity, including murder, torture, terrorism, drug trafficking, arms sales and money laundering.

    While the first subsection limits the criminal acts to “outside the British Islands”, the 9th subsection shows that also criminal acts “in the British Islands” are allowed...

    Section 7 of the Intelligence Services Act 1994 says:
    (1) If, apart from this section, a person would be liable in the United Kingdom for any act done outside the British Islands, he shall not be so liable if the act is one which is authorised to be done by virtue of an authorisation given by the secretary of state under this section.
    (...)
    (9)For the purposes of this section the reference in subsection (1) to an act done outside the British Islands includes a reference to any act which—
    (a)is done in the British Islands; but
    (b)is or is intended to be done in relation to apparatus that is believed to be outside the British Islands, or in relation to anything appearing to originate from such apparatus;
    http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1994/13/section/7


    The Dutch legislation seems even more "flexible" in allowing secret agents to commit crimes.

    Until 2018, according to art. 21 the intelligence agencies “Wet op de Inlichtingen- en Veiligheidsdiensten”, the AIVD and MIVD can engage in any criminal activity and infiltrate in any criminal organisation (for some reason art. 21 was deleted and than a similar article was made in art. 41)…
    1.
    The services are authorised to:
    a. employ natural persons, whether or not undercover of an assumed identity or capacity, which are the responsibility of an intelligence service:
    1 °. to collect information about persons and organisations that may be of importance to an intelligence service;
    2 °. to promote or take measures to protect the interests of an intelligence service.
    b. establish and deploy legal entities to support operational activities.
    (…)
    3.
    The natural person, referred to in the first paragraph, under a, may also be instructed by the intelligence service to carry out actions that result in cooperation with a criminal offense or commit a criminal offense. An instruction as referred to in the first sentence is only given if the proper execution performance of the task of the intelligence service or the safety of the natural person involved so requires.
    (…)
    7.
    By or pursuant to a general Order in Council, on the recommendation of the relevant Ministers and Our Minister of Security and Justice jointly, further rules may be laid down with regard to:
    a. the conditions under which and the cases in which, in order to execute an instruction by a natural person as referred to in the first paragraph, part a, actions may be carried out which may result in cooperation in the commission of a criminal offense, or commit a criminal offense;

    Rodney Stich - Defrauding America

    Rodney Stich in his 1993 book describes that the CIA really is organized crime.
    Stich based his book mainly on intelligence sources. While I do not believe that all of his sources are reliable, because he has used many sources most of the shocking claims should stand up in a court of law…


    Stich and other whistleblowers targeted
    Some parts of the book describe how Rodney Stich was an FAA investigator and became a whistleblower trying to expose gross negligence causing plane crashes. Stich describes how he was targeted by the (federal) government to cover this up. Stich was falsely charged and imprisoned by a corrupt legal system.
    Stich’s millions were taken from him and he was imprisoned by using the corrupt legal system and Chapter 11 confiscation, using a sham divorce judgment (Stich had been divorced for more than 20 years).
    The ACLU refused to help Stich against the many civil right violations. The Friedman law firm that got Stich stripped of his rights was a key member of the San Francisco ACLU.

    Stich describes that he wasn’t the only one. Many people who threatened to expose criminal activities of federal officials, conveniently ended up dead. Over 300 CIA and DEA personnel who tried to expose corrupt CIA activities were locked up.
    For example Presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche was framed and arrested for mail fraud after the Justice Department had bankrupted his company so it could not repay loans.

    One of Stich’s main sources is former high-ranking deep-cover CIA operative, Gunther Russbacher, who he met when he was locked up at the Federal Correctional Center at Dublin, California.
    Russbacher had flown to Central America for the CIA, accompanied by trustee Charles Duck (who was involved in taking Stich’s millions); attorneys of the law firms of Friedman, Sloan and Ross; Goldberg, Stinnett and McDonald (who seized and looted his conjunction with Duck and Judge Robert Jones); and Murray and Murray (who took over after Duck was sent to prison).


    Vietnam heroin and killing POWs
    An officer from the army's Criminal Investigation Division uncovered a large-scale heroin smuggling scheme in which the corpses of dead GIs flying back to the US were cut open, gutted, and filled with sacks of heroin. Some 50 pounds of heroin were stuffed per body.

    Even more shocking is that Robert L. Freeman's group was ordered to kill American prisoners of war (POWs) if they couldn’t be rescued.
    See the following Top Secret cable, dated 21 January 1964, confirming that 40 American POWs had been “TERMINATED”. Copies were sent to President Lyndon Johnson; presidential security advisor McGeorge Bundy; CIA director John McCone.
    SUBJECT: EXTRACTION TEAM COMPROMISED UNABLE TO EXTRACT 10 POW// TERMINATED//

    CIA drugs for arms pipelines
    Examples of the many CIA proprietary airlines that were involved in arms and/or drugs trafficking include : Civil Air Transport (CAT); Air America; Southern Air Transport; Global International Airways; St. Lucia Airways; Intermountain Airways; Summit Aviation; Arrow Airlines; Apex Aviation at Spirit of St. Louis Airport; Evergreen International Airlines; Race Aviation; Ransom Aircraft: Resorts International; Flying Tiger Line; Response Air; Seagreen Air; Skyways Aviation; International Air Tours; Capital Airlines; Air Asia; Rich Mountain Aviation; Southwest Airlines.

    Bill Tyree said that former high-ranking CIA operative Ted Shackley, was deeply involved in Operation Watchtower and other CIA-related drug operations. During the Vietnam War, Shackley helped manage the CIA drug operations in the Golden Triangle, and was the executive director of the Phoenix Program.
    Russell Bowen described that INTERKREDIT, with offices in Medellin, Amsterdam, and Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, was one of the CIA proprietaries operated by Shackley.

    In January 1976, Crittenden Air Transport (CAT) made its first flight to Beijing, China, delivering arms and bringing back a load of heroin, for which CAT received $100,000 from the Shamrock Corporation. The drugs from that flight were unloaded at Bangkok, Thailand, where Southern Air Transport, picked it up for delivery at Los Angeles.
    Stephen Crittenden described that he delivered either arms or drugs, including heroin from Southeast Asia or cocaine and marijuana from Latin America for the CIA. Crittenden used the airport at Mena, Arkansas. He described that Arkansas state police was guarding the operations.
    Crittenden made several flights into Moscow during the Cold War, including one flight in 1976 where M-16 rifles were off-loaded. For the return flight he brought Russian AK 47s to San Salvador in El Salvador. At San Salvador the unloading arms was coordinated by John Forsyth, who worked for James Pennington, the CIA's liaison to Anastasio Somoza, head of the Nicaraguan government.
    Crittenden described one strange flight in which 40 pretty blonde women were flown to Hong Kong as "presents" from the CIA to the military leaders of Communist China. The women were never heard from again.

    According to several CIA and DEA sources, the Mossad was also a major player in the CIA drug trafficking in Latin America, which included Michael "Freddy" Harari and David Kimche. The Mossad worked hand-in-hand with the CIA and drug traffickers (including the Medellin and Cali Cartels).
    In December 1981, the CIA intentionally created a crisis situation, the kidnapping of drug lord Jorge Luis Ochoa's sister, Leona, as an impetus to form Colombia's Medellin Cartel.
    CIA asset Trenton Parker described that the CIA paid the M-19 group 3 million dollars, $2 million in guns and $1 million in cash, to carry out the kidnapping. Parker stated:
    I personally delivered two million dollars to Fidel Castro. And for those two million dollars he was to see that a shipment of arms was to go to M-19.
    Michael Maholy wrote that Latin American oil and gas drilling platforms of Bush’s Zapata Oil were used to funnel weapons and money to the Nicaraguans, and also to traffic narcotics into the US.

    Richard Brenneke testified that the CIA was in partnership with crime lord John Gotti.

    The drug trafficking through Panama into the US didn't stop with Noriega's kidnapping. The new puppet President of Panama was Guillermo Endura, President of a Panamanian bank used by the Medellin cartel. Picked for vice president was Guillermo Ford, part owner of the Dadeland Bank of Florida, who was also involved in money laundering.

    Jim Rothstein described how evidence of the CIA drug and Mafia links was delivered to district attorney Robert Morgenthau, and that the evidence “disappeared” in a day. Rothstein also described how New York City and county authorities refused to prosecute drug criminals working with the CIA.

    Does anybody remember Pizzagate?!?
    FBI agent Richard Taus, working under Assistant U.S. Attorney Louis Freeh, investigated the Pizza Connection, in which pizza parlours and cheese factories were fronts for organised crime's drug trafficking operations with CIA involvement. The CIA's secret group in Freeport, Long Island were involved in the drug trafficking, including Sal lmbergio, who ran for mayor.
    Several of the CIA K-team operation were associated with a nearby CIA-related firm called Drexel Company, of Drexel, Burnham, Lambert, which later changed its name to Castle Securities after its CIA-controlled Cayman Island parent, Castle Bank.
    Freeh refused to act on the connections between Drexel and the drug activities.


    Money laundering
    The CIA laundered some of the drug money through banks that knowingly accepted the funds, including Nugan Hand Bank; Bishop, Baldwin, Rewald, Dillingham and Wong; the Vatican Bank; Bank of Lavoro; and Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI).

    Nugan Hand bank was deeply involved in moving funds about the world for big international heroin dealers. After this scandal broke, in 1979 Bishop, Baldwin, Rewald, Dillingham and Wong (BBRDW) was started, operated, and funded by the CIA to take its place. BBRDW set up offices in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Indonesia, Singapore, and Australia, all former Nugan Hand locations, staffing the offices with over 30 CIA agents.
    Ronald Rewald was framed by the Justice Department, the CIA and federal judges; and sentenced to 80 years in prison. Rewald was released long before those 80 years, in June 1995, though.
    Rewald identified some of the people with secret bank accounts (using fake names) including: George Bush; Richard Armitage; William Casey; and Philippines' President Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos.

    Russbacher identified as CIA proprietaries or assets the following savings and loans: Aurora Bank in the Denver area, Silverado Bank Savings & Loan, Red Hill Savings and Loan, Hill Financial, and Indian Springs State Bank.
    Russbacher also stated that under National Fiduciary trust Companies were Badner Bank and International Commerce Bank Holding company. Under Badner Bank were various airlines, including Zantop Airlines: Tower Airlines; Southern Air Transport; Apollo Air; Virgin Air, and RAW World Service.

    BCCI was a major money laundering bank operating in 78 countries with at one time assets of over $20 billion. Bank of America and the CIA had a major ownership in BCCI. BCCI had a secret and illegal 28% ownership in CenTrust Savings Bank, whose failure will cost the American taxpayer over $2 billion. CenTrust was run by David Paul, a close friend of Senator Kerry, who [s]investigated[/s] covered up the BCCI scandal, and didn’t take any significant action.
    William Barr was an attorney with the Washington law firm of Shaw, Pittman, Potts & Trowbridge that represented BCCI for several years. William Barr was an attorney for Southern Air Transport that coordinated the arms for drugs pipeline from and to Arkansas and Central America.
    One of the men behind the founding of BCCI was Jackson Stephens (who financed Governor Clinton) who headed Stephens, Inc, located in Little Rock, Arkansas. Stephens, Inc. was in business with Harken Energy, where George Bush, Jr. was one the board of directors. Junior’s brother, Jeb Bush, had numerous dealings with BCCI and was frequently in BCCI's Miami office.


    October surprise – bribing Ayatollah Khomeini
    While the US military was preparing another rescue mission, the Reagan-Bush team sabotaged the efforts by making this plan public.
    William Casey and other members of the Reagan-Bush team met secretly with Iranian factions, offering bribes if the Americans remained hostage until after the November 1980 elections. The $40 million bribe money came from the Committee to Reelect the President (CREEP)

    Richard Brenneke testified that he saw George Bush and Donald Gregg in Paris on the weekend of 19 October 1980.
    Russbacher said:
    On the flight deck were pilots Richard Brenneke, an Air Force pilot, and I was the command pilot. In the cabin were George Bush; William Casey (who would be appointed director of the CIA); Robert Gates; Donald Gregg (who at that time was a member of President Carter's National Security Council) and others.
    Russbacher stated that other passengers included George Cave (former CIA Iran expert and translator); Richard Allen; Senators John Tower and John Heinz; Congressman Dan Rostenkowski; and Jennifer Fitzgerald of the State Department.
    Russbacher also saw Adnan Khashoggi and Hashemi Rafsanjani (Ayatollah Khomeini's second in command) in Paris.

    Ari Ben-Menashe stated that he was a member of the Mossad's advance team working with the French government, which arranged the meetings on the 19 October 1980 weekend in Paris.
    Oswald LeWinter stated that he saw George Bush, Donald Gregg and William Casey at the Paris meeting.
    Alexandre de Marenches said that he organised the meeting, on the request of his friend, William Casey, but that he did not attend it.

    This 20 September 1985 document describes the arms-for-hostages scheme showing Israeli involvement; identifying Gunther Russbacher and Robert Hunt (2 of Stich’s sources); and names Oliver North.


    The initial meeting was held in Geneva on or about 14 March 1980, between Ahmed Heidari and Mohammed Hussein Behishti with Cyrus Hashemi and Ari Ben-Menashe (of the Mossad).

    At a second meeting in Barcelona at the Pepsico International Headquarters Building, William Casey, Robert McFarlane and Peter Van Tyne (executive vice-president for Pepsico) met with the Iranians Hushang Lavi and Rogovin.

    Russbacher described how the CIA’s Valley Bank in Phoenix played a key role in moving money for the October Surprise.

    This 27 May 1986 document from John Poindexter to Bill Casey lists the bank account number of a CIA proprietary, for money for the arms. Also listed are Khashoggi, Gunther Russbacher and Robert Hunt. Vice President Bush apparently received a copy of this document.



    Lockerbie – Pan Am crash
    Robert Hunt described how Pan Am planes out of Frankfurt were used to smuggle drugs to the US, using Lebanese and Syrian drug traffickers. This made it possible to put a bomb on Pan Am Flight 103.
    An apparent motive for killing everybody on board the plane were 2 assets of the CIA, Charles Mckee and Matthew Gannon, who were returning to the United States to report on the CIA involvement in drug trafficking.

    Great thread - good research - thanks.

    The British Govt have an interesting track record in drug dealing.

    e.g. 19th Century Opium Wars.

    Opium Wars Political Cartoon by Prince Arthur, on Flickr

    From Wikipedia: 'The Opium Wars were two wars in the mid-19th century involving Great Qing and the British Government and concerned their imposition of trade of opium upon China, thus compromising China's territorial sovereignty and economic power for almost a century. The clashes included the First Opium War (1839–1842), with the British naval forces, and in the Second Opium War (1856–1860), also known as the Arrow or Anglo-French Wars to the Chinese, Britain was aided by French forces. The wars and subsequently imposed treaties weakened the Qing dynasty and Chinese governments, and forced China to increase its imports from colonial and imperial powers.

    Who is in charge of the Afghan Poppy Fields at the moment is a question we should perhaps ask?

    P2, heroin and arms for Khomeini

    From the beginning of the 1960s, for 20 years the Arsan gang smuggled hundreds of millions of tons of weapons to the Middle East, including Leopard tanks and U.S.-produced military helicopters, and arms from the Soviet Union and Bulgaria.
    Henri Arsan was the chairman of Stipam International Transport that was also trafficking drugs, which occupied a building in the Propaganda Due (P2) linked Banco Ambrosiano Milan. Arsan owned trains and ships and had billions of dollars stashed on bank accounts throughout the world.

    Opium from Afghanistan, Iran, Syria, and other areas of Asia were trafficked to Turkey, where it was transformed into morphine.
    From Turkey, the drugs were shipped through Bulgaria and Yugoslavia to Trieste, Italy in trucks of the TIR company. Then the morphine were shipped, mostly through Milan, to Sicily, where they were transformed into heroin and finally shipped to North America, Germany, Scandinavia, Marseilles (France), Belgium and the Netherlands.

    The weapons were trafficked from the ports of Genoa and Leghorn through the Sharadon region, in Syrian on the border with Turkey. From there, the weapons were smuggled to Middle Eastern "clients", including terrorists, military groups, and governments in Kurdistan, Lebanon, and Syria.

    Arsan used the Leghorn export company, owned by P2-member Maurizio Bruni.
    Another owner of Leghorn is P2-member Alessandro Del Bene, who was also indicted for weapons smuggling and very close to Licio Gelli.

    One large secret weapons sale involved arms from Israel to the Iran of Ayatollah Khomeini for Iranian oil at favourable prices. The oil was delivered to Israel thanks to British Petroleum and Royal Dutch Shell. The weapons were used in the war against Iran and Israel used the oil to invade Lebanon.
    The intermediary for this secret deal was the Swiss financial company Dreikot, a subsidiary of Banco Ambrosiano, at the time chaired by Roberto Calvi. Dreikot’s chairman was Hans-Albert Kunz, who travelled to London with P2-member Robert Calvi on his final trip (where he was “suicided”).
    Kunz was also an associate of Victor Emmanuel de Savoi, a close friend of P2 Grandmaster Licio Gelli.

    Hans-Albert Kunz and Gelli’s associate Stefano Delle Chiaie met in Switzerland with Sadeq Tabatabai, the brother of the daughter-in-law of Khomeini, who on 8 January 1983 was caught with 1.65 kg opium in his suitcase at Düsseldorf airport, but released on bail.
    See Ayatollah Khomeini, Sadeq Tabatabai and Franco-German journalist Peter Scholl-Latour on the flight from Paris to Tehran on 1 February 1979.


    On 7 March 1981, Karl Kofler, was found dead in his cell dead from an apparent “suicide” (killed with a long needle through his heart). Kofler was a key witness, who was expected to spill the beans: https://larouchepub.com/eiw/public/1...on_leads_b.pdf
