July 3, 2002,-- 17:00 PDT (FTW) -- The CIA is now operating
a university somewhere in northern Virginia.
According to an entry in a June 24 newsletter published
by an association of former intelligence officers, some
of the courses taught at the university are "economic
trends, international banking, the world oil market, and
how the International Monetary Fund, World Bank, World
Organization, etc. and other non-governmental organizations
For four years FTW has been teaching that
the CIA's primary role, it's raison d'etre, was to serve
the interests of Wall Street and the major
banks. In our recent three-country lecture tour, our documentation
of the close links between CIA and Wall Street has taken
many by surprise. Thirty years ago Professor Peter
Dale Scott of Berkeley disclosed that six out of the first
seven deputy directors of intelligence (CIA's number two
position) had gone directly from Wall Street into service
at the Agency. Since Sept. 11, FTW's disclosure that the
CIA's current executive director, A.B. "Buzzy"
Krongard, is a former investment banker has caused deeper
rumbles. The firm he once
headed, AlexBrown/Deutschebank, has been connected to insider
trading on United Air Lines stock just
before the Sept. 11 attacks. The NYSE's current executive
vice president for enforcement, David
Doherty, is a retired CIA general counsel.
This new curriculum, as reported by Reuters
correspondent T. Zakaria in a May 16 story and by the newsletter
of the Association of Former Intelligence Officers (AFIO)
dated June 24, absolutely and clearly establishes the priorities
of the agency. Understanding this relationship helps people
to rethink their paradigms when trying to understand the
real role of secret intelligence operations in todayпїЅs world.
As described recently by FTW friend Dr. Faiz Khan, "A
paradigm is what you think about something before you think
Since the U.S.-led conquest of Afghanistan
was completed last November, a fresh opium crop has been
planted that has currently put between 3,000 and 4,500
tons of opium back on the market after being harvested
month. That equates to an estimated $150 and $200 billion
in liquid cash revenues that will enter the world's banking
system and financial markets, mostly in the U.S. In January
2000 the Taliban destroyed some 96 percent of the country's
opium crop; an act of economic warfare that took an estimated
$200 billion out of the world's banking system.
The AFIO newsletter also cited a popular
course as "Writing for the President." The Reuters
story, as cited in Pakistan's News International on May
18, quoted the university's president Frans Bax as saying,
"We are deepening the training we are going to do
a whole new generation." Clearly that training is
on subject matters quite
different from the missions the Agency likes to be known
for, such as penetrating terrorist cells to stop attacks
and uncovering military and intelligence secrets of potential
adversaries. The Reuters and AFIO stories say that there
are 11 different schools at the university and describe
some of the classes as covering foreign language instruction.
Many of the classes use classified materials.
The exact location of the university and
access to its "campus" are restricted to those
with proper clearances.
Regarding the drug trade, FTW has
focused for years on the fact that the control of the cash
generated by the international drug trade has been one
the CIA's primary concerns. This was the subject
of a lecture given by this writer at the University of
California at the invitation of Professor David
Andrus in December 2000 entitled "Wall Street's War
for Drug Money."
