The CIA, the Military & Drugs- a dot connecting resource

Updated at bottom

The info contained at the site below relates to, or can help fill in, so many blanks I couldn't even begin to address when I put up the post: Phillip Seymour Hoffman & the Military /Terror/Drug & Banking Complex

Philip Seymour-Hoffman won a Best Actor Oscar for his role as Truman Copote, the brilliant but tortured American writer whose life provided perfect fodder for American cinema.
As Capote

You might wish to hang on to this site, book mark it, as a resource. With one caveat- Mr Emory appears to have a blind spot when it comes to the influence and involvement of Israel in the global geopolitical situation.
Take that into consideration if and when you look at any of the other info at Mr Emory's site. His bias does not negate the talks or the two books, authored by others, linked in the comments section.
 Because, we should never throw the baby out with the bathwater.... 

There is hours and hours of listening. I have gotten through the Part 1 entirely, myself

AFA 24–28: The CIA, the Military & Drugs

AFA 24: The CIA, the Mil­i­tary & Drugs, Pt. 1
Part 1a
44:30 | Part 1b 44:48 | Part 1c 44:36 | Part 1d 44:51 | Part 1e 28:21
(Recorded on Octo­ber 16, 1986)
The first of five AFA shows deal­ing with the intel­li­gence com­mu­nity and the nar­cotics trade, this broad­cast sets forth much of the his­tory of this rela­tion­ship. In par­tic­u­lar, the pro­gram focuses on the role of pro­fes­sional, post World War II anti-communists in the growth of the heroin business.
Begin­ning with the Bayer company’s devel­op­ment of heroin as a cough-depressant and cure for mor­phine addic­tion, the pro­gram sets forth the same firm’s inven­tion of methadone, now used to treat heroin addic­tion. Part of the I.G. Far­ben chem­i­cal firm that served as the back­bone of Third Reich indus­trial pro­duc­tion, Bayer (the devel­oper of aspirin) devel­oped methadone as a syn­thetic opi­ate for treat­ing casu­al­ties prior to World War II. It was orig­i­nally called Dolophine, in honor of Adolph Hitler!

the book mentioned in this series of talks

AFA 25: The CIA, the Mil­i­tary & Drugs, Pt. 2
Part 2a
44:34 | Part 2b 44:28 | Part 2c 44:15 | Part 2d 44:29 | Part 2e 18:30
(Recorded Decem­ber 3, 1986)
This pro­gram focuses on the rela­tion­ship between the intel­li­gence com­mu­nity and the arms-for-drugs trade. Rel­a­tively well pub­li­cized after the Iran-Contra scan­dal came to light, this rela­tion­ship has existed for some time. The broad­cast begins with dis­cus­sion of the Nugan Hand Bank, a com­bined CIA and Naval Intel­li­gence oper­a­tion super­vised under the juris­dic­tion of Task Force 157, and ONI sub­sidiary run by Edwin Wil­son (see AFA-4.) Deeply involved in the South­east Asian drug traf­fic, the Bank also served as a fund­ing source for covert oper­a­tions, includ­ing the desta­bi­liza­tion of the Aus­tralian Labor Party gov­ern­ment of Gough Whit­lam. The bank’s key offi­cials con­sisted largely of for­mer high-ranking U.S. mil­i­tary and intel­li­gence officials...................

AFA 26: The CIA, the Mil­i­tary & Drugs, Pt. 3
The Great Heroin Coup
Part 3a 45:18 | Part 3b 39:57 | Part 3c 40:04 | Part 3d 30:04
(Recorded Jan­u­ary 27, 1987)
This pro­gram focuses on the coop­er­a­tive role of ele­ments of the intel­li­gence com­mu­nity and the U.S. nar­cotics enforce­ment appa­ra­tus in reg­u­lat­ing, not inter­dict­ing, the ille­gal trade in nar­cotics. The title refers to Dan­ish jour­nal­ist Hen­rik Kruger’s appel­la­tion for an appar­ent gam­bit, through which the Nixon admin­is­tra­tion, ele­ments of the CIA and ele­ments of U.S. law enforce­ment dimin­ished the role of Cor­si­can gang­sters in the inter­na­tional heroin trade. This strat­a­gem strength­ened the role of Amer­i­can gang­sters in the heroin traf­fic. Those gang­sters were, not coin­ci­den­tally, con­nected to both the Nixon admin­is­tra­tion and the CIA.............

AFA 27: The CIA, the Mil­i­tary & Drugs, Pt. 4
Part 4a 46:08 | Part 4b 38:11 | Part 4c 41:16 | Part 4d 46:42 | Part 4e 36:20
(Recorded March 15, 1987)
Devel­op­ing a line of inquiry pre­sented in the pre­ced­ing broad­cast, this pro­gram focuses on narco-terrorism in Latin Amer­ica. Par­tic­u­lar empha­sis is on intelligence-related ele­ments that fig­ured in the Iran-Contra scan­dal, anti-Castro Cubans in par­tic­u­lar. Much of the dis­cus­sion cen­ters on activ­i­ties that took place when George Bush was in charge of the CIA.
After review­ing the Latin Amer­i­can nar­cotics net­work of Cor­si­can gang­ster and Third Reich col­lab­o­ra­tor Auguste Ricord, the broad­cast focuses on the role of Ricord asso­ciate Klaus Bar­bie in the 1980 “Cocaine Coup” in Bolivia. The Gestapo chief of Lyons (France) dur­ing the war, Bar­bie found post-war employ­ment with Amer­i­can intel­li­gence, first with the Army’s Counter Intel­li­gence Corps, and later with the CIA.......

AFA 28: The CIA, the Mil­i­tary & Drugs, Pt. 5

Part 5a
46:15 | Part 5b 45:52 | Part 5c 42:56 | Part 5d 45:11 | Part 5e 11:25
(Recorded April 26, 1987)
Begin­ning with the CIA’s research into LSD as part of its inves­ti­ga­tion of mind con­trol tech­niques, this broad­cast high­lights the pro­found role of the intel­li­gence com­mu­nity in the dis­sem­i­na­tion of hal­lu­cino­gens and the devel­op­ment of the recre­ational cul­ture attached to their use.
The CIA and mil­i­tary exper­i­mented with the drug (LSD) in a vari­ety of clin­i­cal and social envi­ron­ments. In addi­tion to pro­duc­ing psy­chotic and (in some cases) lethal results, this exper­i­men­ta­tion also served to infil­trate the drug into intel­lec­tual and pop­u­lar cul­ture. Writ­ers Aldous Hux­ley, Ken Kesey and Allen Gins­berg were intro­duced to the drug (directly or indi­rectly) through the national secu­rity establishment’s LSD exper­i­men­ta­tion programs.
Tim­o­thy Leary’s early research into LSD was sub­si­dized, to some extent, by the CIA. Later, Leary’s LSD pros­e­ly­ti­za­tion was greatly aided by William Mel­lon Hitch­cock, a mem­ber of the pow­er­ful Mel­lon fam­ily. The financ­ing of the Mellon-Leary col­lab­o­ra­tion was effected through the Cas­tle Bank, a Caribbean oper­a­tion that was deeply involved in the laun­der­ing of CIA drug money...........

Two books discussed and related to the approximately 11 hours of audio-

ht  karin- Alfred W. McCoy - The Politics of Heroin CIA Complicity in the Global Drug Trade (1991)
ht kenny- "Acid Dreams" pdf-


  1. If I can find that book anywhere on line, I will post a link to it
    It sounds like a gem

  2. I'm downloading all the CIA & LSD parts. Part 1 is based on the book "Acid Dreams" including readings from it. Thanks

  3. Replies
    1. ty kenny for the acide dreams pdf, I will check to see if I have it and if not I will download it
      and if anyone else needs it, get it while the gettin' is good

      thanks again

  4. Hi Pen,
    The book is available on Amazon. McCoy has written other books which sound just as revealing

    1. thanks james
      for anyone who wants to purchase a hard copy
      amazon looks to have it
      and cheers james
      hope you get to listen to those interviews
      I found the first part over 4 hours very interesting

  5. Great post on a very interesting topic. I tried a number of times to find that book in some big high profile used book stores. No luck.

    This cbc story and yours make for 'strange bedfellows'
    The photos, fuzzy logic, big money paid for the transfer, size of the cases all fit your theme. Constant use of the term gear is kinda cute too. Funny they never say just what the gear is.

    1. I was all over the cbc today, but, missed that one
      I am going to post a link to a pdf at the end

  6. Replies
    1. omg, thanks karin
      I found this copy of the politics of heroin in southeast asia

      now is the 1991 version the same or a different book, must run off to link
      thanks bunches karin :)

      and you guys are all the best

    2. The 1991 book is an updated edition

  7. Venezuela and air France scandal a few months ago.

    1. hi anonymous

      can you leave a link that would help me understand what you are referring to?



    3. "Police at Paris Charles de Gaulle airport have seized 1.3 tonnes of pure cocaine on board an Air France flight from Venezuela, French officials say.

      The drugs were found packed inside 30 suitcases on 11 September, but the operation was revealed on Saturday."

      Interesting there is that date, yet again
      Sept 11...
      the libyan ambassadors death
      and of course the sept 11 that took place in '73's when in chile when
      Allende was assassinated and pinochet the dictator was installed

      France's Interior minister, Manuel Valls, said it was the biggest drug haul ever made in the Paris area.

      Six people were arrested, accused of being members of an international drug smuggling ring, Mr Valls said.

      Officials say they believe the drugs were meant for sale in France and had a street value of 200m euros (£169m; $270m).

      The Air France flight came from Caracas.

      The suitcases with the cocaine reportedly were not registered to any of the passengers.

    4. Venezuelan expels 3 US diplomats. Foreign Minister Elias Jaua accused the U.S. officials of using a visa program as a cover to meet with youth organizers at private universities "for training, financing and creating youth organizations through which violence is promoted in Venezuela."

      NYT 2011
      "A number of the groups and individuals directly involved in the revolts and reforms sweeping the region, including the April 6 Youth Movement in Egypt, the Bahrain Center for Human Rights and grass-roots activists like Entsar Qadhi, a youth leader in Yemen, received training and financing from groups like the International Republican Institute, the National Democratic Institute and Freedom House, a nonprofit human rights organization based in Washington, according to interviews in recent weeks and American diplomatic cables obtained by WikiLeaks"

  8. "You might wish to hang on to this site, book mark it, as a resource."
    No thanks Penny. At the risk of being called a One Trick Pony I'll call him out as a Zionist disinfo merchant.

    Some articles-
    Better Late than Never: Appellate Court Clears the Way for 9/11 Families to Sue Saudi Arabia
    Al Qaeda, the Underground Reich and Proxy War
    German Intelligence and the 9/11 Conspirators
    Curveball II: Is the BND (German Intelligence) Gaming the Syrian Civil War? (Another Good Reason NOT to Intervene in Syria)
    Surprise, Surprise! BND Spies on the United States
    German Intelligence, The National Socialist Union and 9/11

    Hmm- ttps://

    His site is well organised. Put your own 'litmus test' into the search box and see what comes up.

    1. hmmmm... the cia/drug stuff seems well referenced
      So, I will leave all the rest of the info up to everyone else's discernment

  9. btw freethinker

    I definitely disagree with his comments on the bolsheviks- being viciously 'antisemitic'
    since many were members of the tribe
    He says zionism has a fascist element in it. I say zionism and fascism go hand in hand

    1. Yes indeed.

      An interesting comment here from aferrismoon on a blog you will know-

    2. PS, I forgot about this link - a bit of a rant and I don't like his style but many well-aimed points-
      Dave Emory is a Zionist Propagandist and Disinformation Artist

      Dave Emory: "The fact that you had been so thor­oughly and eas­ily mis­lead about Jews/Israel/Zionism is as good an indi­ca­tion as any about The Under­ground Reich’s suc­cess in its efforts.
      Jews and Israel are com­pletely irrel­e­vant to any sub­stan­tive dis­cus­sion of world affairs."

    3. I went to look and yah, he is full of shit on Israel

      "Jews and Israel are com­pletely irrel­e­vant to any sub­stan­tive dis­cus­sion of world affairs."

      Which is one heck of a farcical statement but, should this come as any real surprise?
      Given all the Israeli subservience we are regularly exposed to?

      But, considering that fact, does it negate his discussion of the two books mentioned back in the '80's?
      Does this mean we should not read or consider the books he is discussing?
      I don't think so.
      I think we should just consider what is missing from his analysis and seek further information....
      I don't know freethinker- he didn't write the two books being discussed?

    4. "Does this mean we should not read or consider the books he is discussing?"

      Of course not! You can't possible think I was intending that.

      "But, considering that fact, does it negate his discussion of the two books mentioned back in the '80's?"

      It doesn't negate the discussion but you have to be always on your guard that he will skew the attention on to the Nazis or Germans at every opportunity and away from that other very special and influential group.
      An example highlighted here

      "Mrs. Brussell and her acolyte, Dave Emory, contended that high-ranking former Nazis such as General Reinhard Gehlen who were brought under the wing of American intelligence following World War II were ultimately responsible for the Kennedy assassination—through Permindex.
      However, the fact is that Israeli intelligence was working closely with the Gehlen organization in the post-World War II period. John Loftus and Mark Aarons have written of how Israeli operatives—although they found the new relationship distasteful—did indeed work with reputed former Nazi war criminals in Gehlen's operation.
      What's more, the Israelis had completely infiltrated the Gehlen organization. According to Loftus and Aarons: "They knew exactly what General Gehlen was doing . . . After Israel was born, sections of the Mossad arrived inside Gehlen's base to receive special training . . . Even he had no idea how many of his staff also were reporting to Tel Aviv . . . Whatever Gehlen saw, the Israelis saw."

      Is it wise Penny to wholeheartedly endorse him as a source as you did originally (which is what I was responding to), or would it be better to identify him as a possibly useful but highly biassed source?

    5. thanks freethinker, I went and read the comment
      I note all your concerns and they are valid when it comes to the avoidance of Israel

    6. "Of course not! You can't possible think I was intending that"

      I didn't think you intended that, but, thought I better ask. Just in case
      I know you to be pretty open minded so......

      "It doesn't negate the discussion but you have to be always on your guard that he will skew the attention on to the Nazis or Germans at every opportunity and away from that other very special and influential group."

      yes, I get that

      "Is it wise Penny to wholeheartedly endorse him as a source as you did originally"
      I will put a caveat in the post.

  10. Here we go again the smearing and witch hunt of another race the Jews. Not only is Penny an unwelcome white colonialist in New Zealant she is a tike intent on abusing others for their race. A Nazi to the left looney core. Drugs are welcome and opium is very uselful as a painkiller or for pleasure, A hypocritical bastard like you is sickening . You and your hubby need to be seen as greedy little colonialists. Drop dead you opinionated fool.

    1. I usually don't let the troll posts through, they just dirty up the place
      But, what the hell
      This is of course a member of the tribe. A khazar that converted to judaism
      one of the chosen ones... or so they like to think.
      But then when one is delusional......
      This one has been writing harassing and threatening commentary towards myself and my husband for quite some time now

      According to it- drugs are useful and help with pain
      yes, that is true
      drugs are also extremely destructive, fuel wars and black ops, destroy families, destroy societies, turn people to crime and prostitution to get their fix
      but the khazarian troll doesn't worry it's empty head with the plight of humanity
      because Israel is a major drug producing/trafficking nation-

      Israel becomes major hub in the international cocaine trade, abuse rising

      "It should be noted that Israel has a “star role” in the World Drug Report for 2013 issued by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime and released last June. In the report, which discusses trends in the world, Israel is not infrequently listed in connection with cocaine"

      now I am off to check my hitcounter, but, judging by the writing this is the one who spews filth via an IP in Thailand....

      I don't think I will be mistaken
      hang on and I will let you all know
      Israel has a starring role in the UN Drugs and Crime Report released June 2013

      a non shocker, completely

  11. Bingo!

  12. jo6pac- Hi, you made a comment that you had read the book by McCoy and it was good

    I let it through and it completely disappeared
    It didn't post, it didn't go to my email
    If you wish to leave it again, please do
