HEADLEY, LIKE DAWOOD IBRAHIM, LINKED TO 1993 BOMBINGS; CIA INVOLVEMENT IN INDIA


Dawood Ibrahim, allegedly a CIA asset, has been linked to the 1993 and 2008 Mumbai bombings. Now the American David Headley, allegedly a CIA agent, has been linked to the same bombings.

The American David Headley, who is alleged to be a CIA agent, has allegedly been busy organising terrorism in India for some time.

Shiv Sena parliamentarian Vivek Pandit, has said that David Coleman Headley has links to the 1993 serial bomb blasts in India. (Which ex-minister put pressure on Ujjwal Nikam? )

The 1993 attacks on Bombay are believed to have been coordinated by Dawood Ibrahim, who allegedly works for the CIA. (MUMBAI AND DAWOOD)

The CIA reportedly has infiltrated the Indian secret service, the RAW, and the Indian police, and the Indian government.

The CIA was reported to have penetrated the RAW through people like Major Rabinder Singh, who was helped by the CIA to flee to the US. (Will Headley case affect Indo-US intelligence co-operation? )

B. Raman, former top man in the Indian security services, has written: Headley case: India as a soft sate

B Raman points out that, during the investigation into the Mumbai blasts of 1993, Dawood Ibrahim's gang got logistics help "through the Personal Assistant to a senior member of the Cabinet of Narasimha Rao, the then Prime Minister."

B raman refers to a 1995 air drop of arms and ammunition to terrorists in the Purulia area by an aircraft piloted by a British pilot.

The British pilot was in touch with the British Defence Ministry.

"After consulting the Indian authorities, the British asked the pilot to keep passing on information about the air drop to enable the Indian authorities to lay a trap.

"He reportedly did, but the Indian authorities botched up the operation so badly that the air drop could not be prevented. The extremists managed to collect the air-dropped arms and ammunition and disappear. Till today, we have not been able to identify them though the crew of the aircraft were arrested and prosecuted."


Headley (top right) of the CIA?

According to B raman, the 2008 Mumbai massacre had two places of origin - Pakistan and Chicago "from where the collection of all pre-attack information which made the terrorist attack possible was orchestrated by Headley, an American citizen..."

Headley had changed his name and got a new passport.

B Raman points out that "when a person changes his name and applies for a new passport, his new passport is supposed to carry an endorsement to the effect that 'this person previously travelled under the name with the passport No...'

"If the Indian Consulate-General in Chicago had carefully scrutinised his passport and his visa application as they were supposed to under the rules, they might have noticed the following things: ....he had changed his name and obtained a new passport just before applying for an Indian visa...

"This should have immediately resulted in a personal interview with the applicant in order to question him..."



Is the CIA trying to destabilise the Indian economy, get India into bed with the Pentagon and military-industrial complex, and get India engaged in the balkanisation of Pakistan?

On 21 December 2009, DNA INDIA had an article entitled US playing own game in sharing intel with India which asks if the CIA is involved in a larger, murkier conspiracy.

'Dependable sources' told DNA that almost 80% of the intelligence alerts received by India about terrorism in recent times had originally come from the US.

"The alerts have mostly turned out be false or unsubstantiated."

DNA reports that, according to Indian officials, India let US intelligence tighten its grip on India's intelligence.

According to DNA, sources say that the motive behind American warnings has come under greater scrutiny after Indian intelligence agencies became convinced that Headley was an American agent.

DNA reports that suspicion of the US agencies did not start with the Headley case.

DNA reminds us of the case of the American called Ken Haywood. (MUMBAI AND DAWOOD)

Haywood's computer was allegedly used by Indian Mujahideen operatives to send out an email warning of the Ahmedabad serial blasts in July 2008.

Haywood managed to escape from India "despite a lookout notice against him in all Indian airports."

DNA claims that Indian officials "suspect a strategy behind the 'random distribution of information' by the US agencies into the Indian system."

HEADLEY, THE CIA, NARIMAN HOUSE

Nariman House

It could be argued that the Mumbai attacks of 2008 were carried out by the CIA and its friends.

1. On 20 December 2009, in the Hindustan Times, Vir Sanghvi wrote the following about the American called David Headley, who is suspected of planning the Mumbai attacks of 2008 (Did America keep mum on 26/11? ):

"The only explanation that fits is this: he was an American agent all along.

"The US arrested him only when it seemed that Indian investigators were on his trail.

"He will be sentenced to jail, will vanish into the US jail system for a while and will then be sprung again — as he was the last time."

2. Headley is reported to have visited Nariman House - a Jewish residential complex in Mumbai run by the Chabad-Lubavitch ultra-orthodox movement.

3. Some reports say that the 'terrorists' stayed at a guest house there for up to 15 days before the attacks. ( http://www.cbc.ca/world/story/2008/11/28/mumbai-attacks.html)

It is unlikely that the ultra-orthodox Jews would taken in Moslem fanatics.

The 'terrorists' inside the Nariman House Building were reported to have stocked up on supplies of alcohol.

This would suggest that the terrorists were not Moslems.

According to a witness interviewed by DNA INDIA (http://www.dnaindia.com/report.asp?newsid=1209852) "They had purchased around two crates of chicken and liquor worth Rs25,000 from two shops in Colaba."

4. According to the Guardian (http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2008/nov/27/mumbai-terror-attacks-india4):

"One police officer who encountered the gunmen as they entered the Jewish centre told the Guardian the attackers were "white."

"I went into the building late last night," he said. "I got a shock because they were white. I was expecting them to look like us."

The BBC (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/low/south_asia/7752625.stm) also reported witnesses as saying the Mumbai attackers were white:

Then, the “foreign looking, fair skinned” men, as Mr Mishra remembers them, simply carried on killing.

“They did not look Indian, they looked foreign. One of them, I thought, had blonde hair. The other had a punkish hairstyle. They were neatly dressed,” says Mr Amir.

5. What really happened at Nariman House may never be known.

From: The India Telegraph (http://www.telegraphindia.com/.jsp:

"Israel has requested India not to conduct post-mortems on its nationals killed in the Nariman House siege, citing what it said were 'privacy and religious reasons'."

"KASAB WAS INTERROGATED BY HEADLEY"

Headley of the CIA?

Mumbai bombing suspect Kasab claims he met David Headley, the alleged CIA agent.

(18 December 2009: Mumbai attacker Kasab retracts confession, claims meeting US terror suspect)

Some of the mainstream media are not reporting this.

Kasab, also known as Mohammed Ajmal Amir, has retracted his confession before an Indian special court, say official sources.

Kasab also claims he met U.S. citizen David Coleman Headley, who is suspected of planning the Mumbai attacks.

Kasab says Headley, who is alleged to be a CIA agent, interrogated him, with four whitemen, in his cell at the Mumbai police custody after he was captured, said the sources.

Kasab told Judge ML Tahaliyani that his previous confession was made under duress, said the sources.

Kasab claims that he was not involved in the terror attacks at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus railway station in Mumbai on 26 November 2008 and also denies that he entered India through the sea route in a dingy along with nine other terrorists.

He told the court that he was in India prior to the Mumbai attacks.

He said the police picked him up as he was walking around the city.

Kasab said that Headley, along with four whitemen, interrogated him while he was in the custody of the Mumbai police after his arrest.

"Kasab claimed that Headley interrogated him in his cell on his own," sources said.

Kasab says that he closely resembles one of the terrorists killed in the 26/11 attacks and therefore was forced by police to take his place. (I have never seen an AK-47: Kasab (Lead) )

Kasab further claimed that "The police have killed the main accused who resembles me and they told me that his name was Abu Ali."

"I am his look alike. His height and face resembles mine," Kasab said. (Kasav's U-turn, retracts 26/11 statement )

"I was arrested three days before the 26/11 attacks, when I was going around Juhu area with some friends. I was in police custody at the time of the attacks," Kasab told the courtroom. (I have never seen an AK-47: Kasab (Lead) )

Kasab claims he was interrogated by FBI officials and that David Headley was one of them. (26/11 trial: Kasab was interrogated by Headley )



On 20 July 2009, we are told that the Mumbai suspect has admitted his guilt

According to the BBC, 20 July 2009, little is known of the background of the alleged Mumbai 'terrorist' Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab (Qasab).

Profile: Mohammad Ajmal Amir Kasab

According to the BBC, "Indian officials originally portrayed him as a middle-class boy who spoke good English.

"But subsequent reports suggested he came from a remote village called Faridkot, where his father sold food.

"He had received little education, the reports said, and had spent his youth alternating between labouring and petty crime."

Kasab reminds us of Lee Harvey Oswald who reportedly was sometimes in two places at once and had two different personalities. Apparently the CIA used two different Oswalds in its work.

Two Oswalds Theories in the JFK Assassination

Kasab reminds us of Mohammad Atta who reportedly had a double.

Cached

The Kasab case reminds us of the case involving the attack on the Indian Parliament in 2001.

In 2008, in The Guardian, we read:

"It was after the 2001 parliament attack that the first serious questions began to be raised. A campaign by a group of lawyers and activists exposed how innocent people had been framed by the police and the press, how evidence was fabricated, how witnesses lied, how due process had been criminally violated at every stage of the investigation."

Arundhati Roy: Mumbai .

A Pakistani lawyer C M Farooque has claimed that Ajmal Kasab was arrested in Nepal by the Indian security services before 2006.

Ajmal Kasab Was Kidnapped Before 2006 From Nepal By Indian ...

What was the purpose of the Mumbai attacks?

Here is a clue.

On 20 July 2009, India and the United States agreed a defence deal.

This is expected to boost US arms sales.

India also approved sites for two US nuclear reactors.

India, US agree on defence deal, nuclear reactor sites

Who is this?

The Indian authorities claim that they have in custody one of the Mumbai gunmen responsible for the November 2008 attacks.

This 21 year old 'gunman' is Mohammad Ajmal Amir Iman, also known as Kasav, Qasab, Kamal, Kasab, Qasab, Qasam, Kasab, Kasar, and Kamaal (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ajmal_Amir)

Ajmal Amir seems to be being used to disguise the false-flag nature of the Mumbai Attacks.

The reports about Ajmal Amir are contradictory and confusing.

1. One moment we are told he stayed for several days at the Taj Hotel; the next moment we are told he got straight off a boat and started a killing spree.

(NDTV.com: Terrorists stayed in room 630, had many visitors)

2. There are reports that he had bullet wounds and reports that he did not have bullet wounds.
(No bullet hit Kasab, no active treatment on, says hospital's dean)

3. There are reports that one of his fellow gunmen was arrested at Cana Hospital and reports suggesting that nobody was arrested there.

(According to the BBC: "2120-2200: Gunmen raid the Cama and Albless Hospital ... One attacker is captured here." - (BBC NEWS South Asia Timeline: Mumbai under attack)

4. There are reports that Ajmal Amir speaks fluent English and reports that he is a rather illiterate and poorly educated criminal.

5. We are told that 8 gunmen were arrested and then we are told that only Ajmal Amir was arrested.

(“The Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh told Associated Press that two British-born Pakistanis were among the eight gunmen arrested by Indian authorities.” - Four Mumbai terrorists ‘had links with Britain’)

6. We are told that the gunmen at the railway station and elsewhere were white men and yet Ajmal Amir is reportedly from Pakistan.

(BBC NEWS Mumbai attackers create 'killing zone' / Mumbai Attackers were 'Hindus' and 'White Men' )

7. We are told that the gunmen who shot Karkare spoke Marathi and then we are told that it was Ajmal Amir and his Pakistani friend who shot Karkare.

(The Marathi daily 'Maharashtra Times' said the terrorists who targeted Anti Terrorism Squad chief Hemant Karkare were speaking Marathi fluently. (i.e. they were not from Pakistan) Reportedly, traditional Jews from Mumbai, who have migrated to Israel, speak fluent Marathi and are known to have been recruited by Mossad.)

There is doubt, therefore, that Ajmal Amir did the shooting that he is supposed to have done.



At what point may Ajmal Amir have been recruited by people from some group, such as Lashkar-e Taiba, who work for the CIA or Mossad or RAW or ISI or MI6?

Lashkar-e Taiba (LeT) took part in the Bosnian War against Serbia. (http://www.satp.org/satporgtp/lashkar_e_toiba.htm)

LeT is the Moslem group, operating in Jammu and Kashmir, that has been blamed for the Mumbai Attacks.

LeT reportedly has links to the Pakistan and UK intelligence services. (US and UK links to the terrorists in India and Pakistan)

Reportedly:

Ajmal Amir is from a poor family in a poor village called Faridkot in Pakistan.

He went to school until age 13.

He left home after a fight with his father in 2005.

He then became involved in petty crime with his friend Muzaffar Lal Khan, soon moving on to armed robbery.

Reportedly, the security services like to employ criminals to do their dirty work.

In 2007, in Rawalpindi, Ajmal Amir and his friend decided to sign up for training with Lashkar-e-Taiba, ending up at their base camp, Markaz Taiba.

Initial reports suggested Ajmal Amir was fluent in English, and from a middle class background. (Father of gunman, Amir, 'paid by terrorists to hand him over')

Some sources said his father asked him to join Lashkar-e-Taiba so that he could use the money they gave him to run the family (Kasab says his father sent him to LeT )

Ajmal Amir is alleged to be among a group of 24 men who received training in marine warfare at a remote camp in mountainous Muzaffarabad in Pakistani-controlled Azad Kashmir. Part of the training is reported to have taken place on the Mangla Dam reservoir. (Rumours abound as inquiry begins its search for truth")

Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, a senior commander of the Lashkar-e-Taiba, reportedly offered to pay his family Rs.150,000 for his participation in the attacks. (Pakistan now holds the key to probe: investigators)

Another report said the 21-year old man was recruited from his Punjab, Pakistan home in part based on a pledge by recruiters to pay USD $1,250 US (Rs. 62,412.50) to his family when he became a martyr. Other sources put the reward to USD $4,000. (Bombs found in Mumbai train station a week later, National Public Radio, Mumbai Terrorist Wanted to 'Kill and Die' and Become Famous )

According to a media report citing an unnamed former Defence Department Official of the US, the intelligence agencies of the US had determined that the former officers from Pakistan’s Army and its powerful Inter-Services Intelligence agency assisted actively and continuously in training.

Reportedly Ajmal Amir said to his Indian captors: "We were told that our big brother India is so rich and we are dying of poverty and hunger. My father sells dahi wada on a stall in Lahore and we did not even get enough food to eat from his earnings. I was promised that once they knew that I was successful in my operation, they would give Rs 150,000 [almost USD 4,000] to my family)," said Qasab. (Mumbai Terrorist Wanted to Kill and Die and Become Famous, ABC News, 03-Dec-2008)

Reportedly Ajmal continued: "If you give me regular meals and money I will do the same for you that I did for them."

"When we asked whether he knew any verses from the Quran that described jihad, Ajmal Amir said he did not," police said. "In fact he did not know much about Islam or its tenets," according to a police source. (Mumbai Terrorist Wanted to Kill and Die and Become Famous, ABC News, 03-Dec-2008 )

"Please do not tell anyone that I am caught alive otherwise they will kill me. They had told us that they would shoot us if we ever returned to Pakistan", he said, according to the Asian Age, as quoted by ABC (USA). (Mumbai Terrorist Wanted to Kill and Die and Become Famous, ABC News, 03-Dec-2008 )

Reportedly, Ajmal Amir was captured on CCTV during his attacks at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus along with another terrorist, Ismail Khan.

Ajmal Amir reportedly told the police that they wanted to replicate the attack on Islamabad's Marriott hotel attack, and reduce the Taj Hotel to rubble, replicating the 9/11 attacks in India. (PLANNED 9/11 AT TAJ: CAUGHT TERRORIST)

Reportedly:

Ajmal Amir and his accomplice Abu Dera Ismail Khan, age 25, attacked the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (Victoria Terminus) railway station.

They then moved on to attack a police vehicle at Cama Hospital, in which Maharashtra Anti Terrorism Squad Chief Hemant Karkare, was traveling.

Azam and Ismail Khan then drove towards Metro cinema and then towards Vidhan Bhavan.

Their vehicle had a tire puncture, so they stole a silver Škoda Laura and drove towards Girgaum Chowpatty. They met a police barricade on Marine Drive. Abu Ismail was killed and Ajmal Amir was captured.

Some reports said that Ajmal Amir was shot and had bullet wounds in his hand or both hands. (Sole Captured Suspect Offers Grim Insights Into Massacre )

There are other reports by doctors who treated him that he had no bullet wounds. (No bullet hit Kasab, no active treatment on, says hospital's dean)

Reportedly:

Ajmal Amir disclosed the location of a fishing trawler, MV Kuber, that the gunmen reportedly used to enter Mumbai's coastal waters. He also told investigators where they would find the ship captain's body, a satellite phone and a global-positioning device. (Sole captured suspect offers grim insights into massacre, 2008)

It is reported that Ajmal Amir told the police that he and his associate, Ismail Khan, were the ones who shot Anti-Terror Squad chief Hemant Karkare, encounter specialist Vijay Salaskar and Additional Commissioner Ashok Kamte.

Reportedly, Ajmal Amir told the police he entered the Taj Hotel posing as a student from Mauritius and stored explosives in a room. (Arrested terrorist reveals all to police)

Ajmal Amir reportedly revealed that he and his associate stayed in Room 630 in the Taj Mahal Palace hotel and had many visitors. They had booked the room for four days using fake Mauritian identities. (NDTV.com: Terrorists stayed in room 630, had many visitors)

On November 29, Ajmal Amir named his colleagues as Abu Ali, Fahad, Omar, Shoaib, Umer, Abu Akasha, Abu Ismail Dera Ismail Khan, Abdul Rahman (Bara), and Abdul Rahman.

Reportedly Ajmal Amir has told his interrogators that their plan was to get off the dinghy near the fishing village at Badhwar Park, Cuffe Parade, at dusk and strike all targets except Nariman House between 19:00 and 20:00. However, the landing was delayed and they arrived at 20.45. (We wanted to hit CST at peak hour, says arrested terrorist)

DID US SPECIAL FORCES CARRY OUT THE MUMBAI ATTACKS?

David Headley, alleged CIA agent, may be the key to the Mumbai bombings of 2008 (Headley top right)

In the Indian parliament, Brinda Karat, leader of the CPI(M) party, has stated, quoting reports, that the American David Headley worked for the CIA, and that the US government helped him make frequent trips to Pakistan. (Tharoor makes light of Karat's comment on Headley in RS )



Headley befriended Indian celebrity Rahul Bhatt.

According to Bhatt, Headley claimed to have done a stint with the US army.

Headley told Bhatt about the US military's Delta Force and the CIA's top-secret force called Special Activities Division which carries out covert political action and paramilitary operations. (IndiaDaily - Rahul Bhatt hints Headley may be a dual CIA-ISI agent ...)

Headley was operating from a Training Gym extremely close to the US Consulate at Bridge Candy. (Mahesh Bhatt & the Headley affair )

"He was also very friendly with the personnel at the US consulate and was on a first name basis with a number of US Consulate officials that he met at the gym.

"He also shared his house with other White individuals.

"Similarly Ken Haywood a suspect in the Ahmedabad blasts has received training in the US army & was connected to extremist Christian organizations." (Mahesh Bhatt & the Headley affair )

According to The Times of India, Headley, while in India, 'frequently introduced himself as a CIA agent'. (Is Headley an American agent? )

HAYWOOD

In 2008, US national Ken Haywood, reportedly with the help of the US embassy, fled from India. (Cached)

He was being investigated for terrorism.

Ken Haywood's computer was used to send a "terrorist" e-mail minutes before bomb blasts in Ahmedabad, in July 2008.

Reportedly, Haywood has links to Abdur Subhan Qureshi, alias Taufique Bilal and Tauqir, reportedly the top terrorist in India.

Haywood returned to India in September 2008. (Ahmedabad blasts: Ken Haywood arrives in India 11 Sep 2008, 0215 hrs IST, C Unnikrishnan,TNN)

In India, Haywood works for a firm called Campbell White, suspected of being a front for the CIA.

Haywood doesn't feature on its list of employees. (Cached)

The Indian Express reported on 14 August 2008 that the company's Mumbai office 'is located in two small adjoining rented rooms on the ground floor of Sanpada railway station complex', and that 'the two rooms also serve as prayer rooms for Potter's House... part of the Christian Fellowship Ministries based in Arizona.'

Duplex in Wadala

A Post at 'Consortium of Indian Defence Websites' (Cached), 20 Aug 2008:

"Haywood's fleeing immediately after the cracking of the Gujarat blasts and capture of the perpetrators is most suspicious.

"His escape resembles that of our ex-R&AW traitor,who also escaped with alleged US help.

"It also indicates that we may have in our intelligence services moles/informants working for foreign agencies tipping off agents within the country.

"However,the fact the Haywood was working for a bogus 'missionary' outfit is doubly alarming.

"The role of US so-called missionaries/evangelical groups in India is very controversial,for they are playing a dual role in agressive conversions as well as being part of the CIA destabilisation plan for India.

"Tehelka a few years ago revealed the fact that over 100 US so-called "Christian" evangelical groups/organisations were in fact bogus and part of Bush's CIA network.

"The question that now looms large in the mind is what connection exits between the CIA and the SIMI (Students Islamic Movement of India - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) sponsored terrorists?

"Is SIMI actually a CIA operation?

"Does the Islamist terrror in India have a CIA-ISI background.

"Given the cosy relationship that the ISI and the CIA have had for decades and the termemndous importance and preferential treatment that Pak receives in comparison with India,it stands to reason that a sinister destabilisation operation is on to weaken India, especially at a time when we have the weakest ever puppet PM and his govt. in power."

ANGLETON, MOSSAD, USS LIBERTY

Angleton, who was of the pro-Israel faction in the CIA. He was head of Counter Intelligence at the CIA from 1954 - 1975.

There is a theory that the key people in the CIA have always worked on friendly terms with the key people in the KGB and the key people in Mossad. (DO JEWS RUN THE SECURITY SERVICES?)

And Jewish folks are very influential in certain countries.

According to Haaretz, "Every appointee to the American government must endure a thorough background check by the American Jewish community."
(American Jews eye Obama's 'anti-Israel' appointees - Haaretz ...
)

James Jesus Angleton worked for the CIA.

He may also have worked for Mossad.

He may, or may not, have realised that Mossad worked with the KGB.

USS Liberty

A Spotlight report, of 21 November 1977, claimed that Angleton conspired with Israel to attack the USS Liberty. (USS Liberty)

Reportedly, Angleton believed the sinking of the Liberty could be used as a "Pearl Harbour" type of incident to turn Americans against the Arabs.

(aangirfan: The US government tried to sink the USS Liberty)

It was Angleton who negotiated an agreement whereby Israel and America agreed not spy on each other. (Book Reviews: Every Spy a Prince)

(The agreement was nullified by Admiral Stansfield Turner, when he was Jimmy Carter's CIA director. But, Mossad contined to work closely with the CIA.)


Terence Hawkes wrote that Angleton's friendship with Mossad "gave him a major role in preserving Israel's secrecy in respect of Suez.

"As the officer in charge of the Israeli 'account', he supported the Israeli atomic bomb programme." (James Jesus Angleton by Michael Holzman reviewed by Terence Hawkes TLS)

After Angleton died, a memorial to him was erected in Jerusalem.

James Jesus Angleton's father, according to a close friend, Max Corvo, was "ultra-conservative" and a fascist sympathizer. (James Angleton)

It was during World War II that James Jesus Angleton became a spy.

Reportedly Angleton helped set up Operation Gladio, which involved CIA militias carrying out acts of muderous terrorism in Italy.

"Angleton built on family and business connections in Italy to lay the basis of Gladio...

"He also helped notorious Nazi/fascist mass-murderers such as Junio Valerio 'Black Prince' Borghese elude justice at war's end." (Cached)

Philby, friend of the KGB and MOSSAD.

In 1943 Angleton was sent to London to be trained by MI5 officer Kim Philby, who turned out to be a friend of the KGB and Mossad. (James Angleton)

In 1951 Angleton was sent to Israel where he helped to set up Mossad.

According to the controversial Eustace Mullins (CHAPTER FIVE - The CIA - 3): "While CIA station chief in Rome, the CIA's Angleton "worked closely with the Zionist terrorists Teddy Kollek and Jacob Meridor, and later became chief of the Israeli desk at the CIA, helping Philby to set up the lavishly funded international Mossad espionage operation, all paid for by American taxpayers."

In 1951, the CIA was investigating Kim Philby, the top MI6 agent working in Washington.

The CIA director, Walter Bedell Smith, asked Angleton and William Harvey to write separate reports on Philby. (James Angleton)

Harvey concluded that Philby was a Soviet spy.

Angleton defended Philby.

Smith took the advice of Angleton.

Philby escaped to the Soviet Union in 1963.

Reportedly, Kim Philby was assisted in escaping to the Soviet Union by the Israeli Mossad (Sunday Telegraph, April 16, 1989) Cached.

(Lord Victor Rothschild was allegedly one of the other top Soviet spies in the UK ; Soviet spy Guy Burgess was close to Rothschild.)

In 1954 CIA boss Allen Dulles appointed Angleton as chief of the CIA's counter-intelligence section.


Angleton provided information to the Warren Commission.

Some people have claimed that Angleton was involved in covering up the CIA's involvement in the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

Golitsin

Angleton interviewed Anatoli Golitsin, a KGB agent who defected to the CIA.

Golitsin suggested that W. Averell Harriman had been a Soviet spy, while he was the U.S. Ambassador to the Russia during the Second World War. (James Angleton)

According to Eric Margolis, Angleton "became an active 'asset' or at least very close ally of Israel’s Mossad, and a champion of Israel’s cause in Washington." (FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT, by Eric Margolis)

Clare Edward Petty, of the CIA's Special Investigation Group (SIG), concluded that there was an "80-85 percent probability" that Angleton was a Soviet spy. (James Angleton)

Kissinger

In 1973, James Schlesinger temporarily became Director of the CIA.

Angleton gave Schlesinger a list of people that he thought were Soviet agents.

This list included Harold Wilson, the British prime minister, Olof Palme, the Swedish prime minister, Willy Brandt, chairman of the West German Social Democratic Party, Averell Harriman, the former U.S. ambassador to the Soviet Union, Lester Pearson, the Canadian prime minister and Henry Kissinger, the National Security Adviser and Secretary of State under President Richard Nixon.

Schlesinger thought Angleton was suffering from paranoia.

In mid 1973, William Colby became the Director of the CIA.

Colby was not impressed with Angleton.

Colby said he could not find any evidence "that we ever caught a spy under Jim". (James Angleton)

So, are the key spooks often in league with each other?

The newspaper Scotland on Sunday reported, on 16/9/ 2001, that Osama bin Laden made his fortune in part by working with Jewish-Russian mafia operations in Qatar and Cyprus. (Mafias)

According to Wayne Madsen, "The Bin Laden drug network ... intersects with Geneva-based financial entities established by George H. W. Bush while he was CIA director and Vice President and President of the United States." - (aangirfan: Bush, Bin Laden, Drugs.... )

Reportedly, "Angleton had an alliance with ... the Mafia, dating from 1944 when he was an O.S.S. officer in Italy.

"'Operation Gladio' ... was based on Angleton's fascist-Mafia connections, and employed ... the Mafia to assassinate some who couldn't be bribed, e.g. Prime Minster Aldo Moro." (Cached)
