- What can you say about a dead white guy whose own wife
called him "The Shark"?
- Yes, Allen Dulles was a lawyer. He worked for the powerful
illuminati law firm Sullivan & Cromwell, whose clients included multinational
corporations as well as foreign governments, and whose big money deals
shaped the destiny of the planet.
- In a high profile career which spanned two World Wars
as well as the Cold War, Dulles was also a director of the Central Intelligence
Agency and a director of the Council on Foreign Relations.
- Most importantly, Dulles was a moral, intellectual and
physical cripple. His philandering was notorious. His acquiescence to the
wishes of his masters - the Anglo-American Establishment - is a matter
of historical record. And ironically, he also had a club foot, like Dr.
Sidney Gottlieb, the director of the CIA's Technical Services Division,
responsible for the Agency's diabolical mind control programs.
- James Srodes, author of Allen Dulles: Master of Spies,
has produced a sanitized whitewash of a biography, completely avoiding
Dulles's culpability in his many heinous crimes against humanity.
- During Dulles's tenure, after all, the CIA continuously
used people as involuntary human guinea pigs. In their hubris, the arrogant
spymasters believed they were accountable to no one, the lives of their
victims mere Olympian playthings.
- This dysfunctional mindset of the power elite is the
psychopathology of Dulles himself and many others who consider themselves
the movers and shakers of the twentieth century.
- Nazis Bankrolled By Wall Street
- With blithe disregard, Srodes downplays the importance
of the collusion between Big Business and Big Government, writing, "there
is little doubt that a close relationship between the State Department
and the senior partners of Sullivan & Cromwell suited all the parties
well... Questions of conflicts of interest rarely arose in a time when
the interests of commerce and government were so closely allied."
- Closely allied? That's Srodes oh-so-quaint way of saying
that the Old Boys Club infested the highest levels of government as well
- Most bothersome, however, is Srodes's dedicated ignorance
of the build-up of the Nazi War Machine by Wall Street investment bankers.
For instance, in dealing with the Schroeder bank's involvement with financing
Hitler, Srodes is disingenous at best. He claims that it was a "different"
Schroeder bank because of the different spelling of the surname, even though
the name was anglicized in its British incarnation.
- "There never was any proof that Sullivan or Cromwell
or the Dulles Brothers of the London Schroeder Bank ever had ties to or
dealings with von Schroeder," huffs Srodes.
- Srodes's disinformational biography disregards well known
facts recounted in former Hoover Institution scholar Antony C. Sutton's
landmark history, Wall Street And The Rise Of Hitler.
- "Who was Schroeder?" asks Sutton in his book.
"Baron Kurt von Schroeder was born in Hamburg in 1889 into an old
established German banking family. An earlier member of the Schroeder family
moved to London, changed his name to Schroder (without the dierisis) and
organized the banking firm of J. Henry Schroder in London and J. Henry
Schroder Banking Corporation in New York."
- In his well-documented story of the American financiers
who provided the money and material Hitler used to launch World War II,
Dr. Sutton recounts how Nazi Baron Kurt von Schroeder "acted as a
conduit for I.T.T. money funneled to Heinrich Himmler's S.S. organization
in 1944, while World War II was in progress and the United States was at
war with Germany."
- Furthermore, in recent correspondence with this author,
Dr. Sutton writes that "New York was so determined to conceal the
WWII links that a vice president of New York Schroeder Bank (Bogdan) was
put in uniform and sent to Germany to grab the [incriminating] paperwork
before US troops even reached Cologne."
- The American subsidiary of the notorious Nazi firm I.G.
Farben, called American I.G., was under the control of an American citizen
named Halbach, nominally a consultant to the firm.
- When his bank accounts were blocked after Pearl Harbor,
Sutton writes, "Halbach filed suit against the Alien Property Custodian
through the Establishment law firm of Sullivan and Cromwell to oust the
US Government from its control of I.G. Farben companies. These suits were
unsuccessful, but Halbach was successful in keeping the Farben cartel agreements
intact through World War II."
- "This tells me someone even today wants to keep
history concealed," says Sutton. "The work of the Control Commission
for Germany would be a very productive research project."
- Dulles And The Wilson Puppet
- In spite of himself, Srodes lets the truth slip out during
unguarded moments. For instance, describing the way that President Wilson
was controlled by his notorious handler "Colonel" House, Srodes
writes that "Wilson created a special advisory group, the Commission
of Inquiry. It quickly became known as the Inquiry, and the press called
it Wilson's brain trust. Under Colonel House's direction, the group was
made up of historians, geographers, economists and other experts on world
affairs. With typical Wilsonian confidence, the President told his advisors
not to bother him with the details of the issues he would confront. 'Just
tell me what is right, and I will fight for it,' he said."
- House certainly acceded. According to many analysts,
he told Wilson what to do in the manner of a handler and his asset.
- Srodes does nothing to illuminate Wilson's obsession
with the League of Nations, a failed precursor of the UN. "His fixation,
which used the young Allen Dulles and his brother Foster Dulles, resulted
in the Treaty of Versailles which by carving up ethnic groups and nations
was in due course responsible for setting the stage for World War II."
- "Major participants began to flee Paris at once,"
writes Srodes, "though there remained an enormously detailed set of
agreements on borders, arms trade, and nationalities - 35 separate committees
in all - that would have to be worked out for the final act of the drama,
the Treaty of Sevres signed in August 1920."
- Allen Dulles, meanwhile, failed upward - getting more
responsibility from the Power Elite to fulfill their mandates.
- Mind Control - The Solution To Dulles's Problem Wife
- The illuminati double standard in sexual ethics ("do
as I say not as I do") is underscored by Dulles's "private"
- "Allen Dulles was a womanizer by any standards,"
writes Srodes. "It is inconceivable that he would have been hired
by the CIA at all, let alone serve as its director for as long as he did,
if today's intense scrutiny and censorious attitudes had existed in the
- "His penchant for flirtations and flings [Srodes
can't bear to call them affairs] drew frequent rages and warnings from
Clover [Dulles's wife]," pontificates the author.
- "Clover had come to terms with her husband's philandering,"
writes Gordon Thomas in Journey Into Madness: The True Story Of CIA Mind
Control And Medical Abuse.
- "It had been strong enough to have driven her to
contemplate suicide," continues Gordon. "Each time she had discovered
a new adultery she had gone to Cartier. She had filled a jewel box with
expensive baubles marking his infidelities."
- "Over the years Clover had also consulted several
psychiatrists who had prescribed drugs that only momentarily masked her
pain. It had been an Agency doctor, a kindly man, who had finally taken
her aside during a reception at the French Embassy for Bastile Day and
said she could benefit from seeing a Dr. Cameron."
- This was the notorious criminal Doctor Ewen Cameron whose
hospital in Montreal became a living hell, the horror show setting for
mind control experiments directed by CIA director Allen Dulles.
- Sanitizing The CFR
- Srodes is a great spinmeister, following in the long-standing
tradition of other Establishment hack writers, or in veteran researcher
Sherman Skolnick's terms - "whores of the press."
- "His [Dulles's] early membership in the Council
on Foreign Relations would prove much more important to his development,"
writes Srodes. In other words, if joining the Old Boys Club doesn't help
your career, nothing will.
- Srodes doesn't explain the significance of the CFR, a
defacto U.S. Politburo, sister organization of the Royal Institute of International
Affairs, whose mutual origin in Cecil Rhodes's Roundtable Group remains
ground zero for contemporary globalists who dominate US Government policies
- The Council on Foreign Relations, the preeminent cabal
of US-based control freaks, is even quoted in the book from the 1944-45
Report as pronouncing, "Peace will need to be worked out as diligently
as war has been."
- The CFR's penchant for globalist micro-management has
been a bane for America ever since.
- "From 1939 onward, Dulles had become one of the
leading public proponents of the view that America's own defense security
was inextricably entwined with that of Western Europe and particularly
with that of Britain," writes Srodes.
- "That year, he and Hamilton Fish Armstrong published
a sequel to their 1936 argument against isolationism."
- Undoubtedly, Dulles's dull propaganda tract called "Can
We Stay Neutral?" set the agenda for public acquiescence to the burgeoning
war industry and further profiteering by Wall Street allied industries.
- After all, how could you make money without a designated
- The Washington Kremlin
- Ironically, the home to the OSS and the CIA - a compound
of buildings at 2430 E. Street N.W. - was called "the Kremlin."
- This bizarre moniker betrays the police state mentality
of the OSS-CIA veterans who became the ardent fighters of communism.
- As far back as 1945, the CIA has been called an "American
Gestapo," most notably in a series of articles written by Walter Trohan
in the Chicago Tribune.
- During that time, General George Strong argued that the
OSS was "possibly dangerous" and that "it ought to be liquidated
in a perfectly natural, logical manner."
- The specious argument that America "needed"
an intelligence agency is betrayed by the fact that there were no less
than eight different spy agencies in the US at the time.
- The CIA-Media Propaganda Connection
- "With a combination of hard dollar contributions
and soft dollar services, major American corporations were enthusiastic
supporters of both government and private cloak and dagger campaigns,"
- "Correspondents for major newspapers, magazines
and broadcast networks (notably Time-Life, NBC and CBS) doubled as collectors
while the media outlets themselves shaped programming to propaganda needs."
- According to Deborah Davis, author of the definitive
biography Katharine The Great: Katherine Graham and Her Washington Post
Empire, it was much worse.
- Interviewed in Kenn Thomas's edition of Popular Alienation,
Davis says that "Philip Graham was Katherine Graham's husband who
ran the Post in the '50s. He committed suicide in 1963. That's when Katherine
Graham took over. [Benjamin] Bradlee was close friends with Allen Dulles
and Phil Graham. The paper wasn't doing very well for a while and he was
looking for a way to pay foreign correspondents and Allen Dulles was looking
for a cover."
- "So the two of them hit on a plan," says Davis.
"Allen Dulles would pay for the reporters and they would give the
CIA the information that they found as well as give it to the Post. So
he helped to develop this operation and it subsequently spread to other
newspapers and magazines. It was called Operation Mockingbird."
- The Washington Post is a CIA front. Deal with it.
- CIA infiltration of the mass media is an historical fact.
But is this politically incorrect history taught in the prestigious Schools
of Journalism around the country? Very unlikely.
- The Dulles-Mafia Connection
- In mobster Sam Giancana's revealing biography, Double
Cross, "Mooney [Giancana] went on to say that CIA director Allen Dulles
was the one who originally came up with the idea of taking out Castro."
- "Two officials, Richard Bissell and Sheffield Edwards,
were selected to put the scheme into action," write co-authors Sam
and Chuck Giancana, godson and brother of mob boss Sam Giancana. "For
the liaison to the Outfit [the Chicago-based Mob], Mooney said they called
on Bob Maheu [a Howard Hughes operative]."
- "The guy from the FBI? The guy who used to be with
the FBI. He has a cover, a detective agency," answered the elder Giancana.
"He's working for our Teamsters attorney friend, Williams. That's
how a lot of the guys work. Like Bannister. Maheu and Banister work for
the CIA all the time. They're good, damned good. And they've made me a
lot of money."
- The CIA's use of "cutouts," or go-betweens,
put distance between the CIA's murderous deeds and the killers they hired.
Most recently this practice has been called "privatization."
- "After Mooney's initial meeting with Maheu, one
arranged by his lieutenant Johnny Roselli, Mooney told Chuck he instructed
Roselli to tell Santo Trafficante amd Carlos Marcello he wanted them to
provide the assistance necessary - their Cuban connections - to pull off
the CIA assassination plot," the book continues.
- "Mooney made Roselli the go-between with Maheu and
the CIA. Meanwhile Mooney said he put Jack Ruby back in action supplying
arms, aircraft and munitions to exiles in Florida and Louisiana, while
the former Castro Minister of Games, Frank Fiorini, joined Ruby in the
smuggling venture along with a Banister CIA associate, David Ferrie."
- These intimate connections between a notorious cast of
characters from the CIA, the Outfit and the JFK assassination players put
credence to Giancana's contention, "That's what we are, the Outfit
and the CIA, two sides of the same coin."
- Dulles And The JFK Hit
- Then President John F. Kennedy had the audacity to fire
Allen Dulles as director of the CIA. Why? He blamed himself and the CIA
chief for the Bay of Pigs failed invasion of Cuba.
- Enraged at the fiasco, Kennedy vowed to "splinter
the CIA into a thousand pieces." Shortly thereafter the men who caused
him public humiliation were fired - CIA veterans Allen Dulles, Richard
Bissell and General Charles Cabell.
- It has been duly noted that CIA agents loyal to Dulles
had been placed throughout the United States. Also, the Nazi spymaster
Reinhard Gehlen's German and Eastern European agents, exfiltrated after
WWII, were positioned in Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, and New Orleans,
where they would be later useful in providing a smokescreen for the Warren
Commission's coverup of JFK's murder.
- When President Johnson appointed Dulles to be a member
of the Warren Commission to probe the JFK assassination, there was more
than a little irony that the former CIA spymaster got the job.
- When you need a first class coverup, call a professional.
The blatant conflict of interest was once again covered up by the media
"watchdogs" turned lapdogs. The fix was in.
- Interestingly enough, Srodes writes that "the correspondence
in Dulles's personal papers shows that a major preoccupation of all the
commission members was to satisfy the American public that Lee Harvey Oswald
had acted alone and above all, had not had any ties to the CIA, the FBI
or any other arm of the government."
- "The Lone Nut Conspiracy Theory" was born,
and the Dulles-directed Warren Commission Report is as good a fraud as
the Piltdown Man hoax. Probably better, since it still stands in Big Media.
- Dulles - Illuminati Gofer
- Even though "gofer of the illuminati" might
be too harsh a sobriquet for Dulles, it is certainly not inaccurate.
- As the ultimate insider and member of the ultra-secret
Pilgrim Society, Dulles consistently followed his masters' agenda of internationalism.
He steadfastly promoted globalism and the oligopoly's control of resources
and nations, which the "useful idiots" - as the Soviets use to
call them - believe will lead to the inevitable One World Government.
- Allen Dulles: Master of Spies is a prime example of revisionist
biography at best - or blatant hagiography at worst. It's another whitewash
of a man who could be liberally characterized as a world-class criminal.
- In his conclusion to the 570-page doorstop of a book,
Srodes flirts with the truth and even briefly touches it. He writes that
"Dulles was indebted to both his grandfather and uncle for his conviction
that the safety of a free society must be protected by that institutional
paradox, a publicly accountable secret service."
- It is certainly secret, but most certainly not accountable.
- "If that ideal was wrong, then Dulles was wrong
and the concept on which the CIA was founded was also wrong," writes
Srodes. "If the past fifty years were wrongly cast, then the Truman
Doctrine, the Marshall Plan and the Cold War were all ghastly mistakes."
- And that ghastliness remains Dulles's lasting legacy.
- "His monument is around us," concludes Srodes,
referring to the bas-relief medallion with Dulles's portrait, hanging in
the central lobby of the CIA headquarters building.
- That "monument" is today's surveillance society.
- You can thank Allen Dulles, godfather of the National
Security States of America.
