From Hoover On Line:

                Pacific Holding Company is the holding company for the
                colorful, near-billionaire David Murdock. He owns
                minority stakes in Dole Food and real estate
                development company Castle & Cooke (he is chairman
                and CEO of both). Murdock's other holdings include
                Flexi-Van Leasing (which he uses to make investments)
                and the Harbor Court Hotel in Baltimore. Murdock is
                buying the remaining shares of Castle & Cooke, which
                he will take private. Castle & Cooke owns 98% of the
                exclusive resort island of Lanai in Hawaii, as well as
                other commercial and residential real estate in Arizona,
                California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, and North Carolina.

1. Pacific Holding and Zapata.

Note by Linda Minor:

In the 1979 Zapata SEC filings, the largest Common Stock Investor is International Mining Corporation at 200 Park Avenue New York, NY with 10% of the common equity of Zapata. A footnote explains that IMC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pacific Holding Company, which is in turn a wholly-owned subsidiary of Murdock Investment Corp, all the stock of which is owned by David H. Murdock, 10889 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, California.

Zapata was George H. W. Bush's company which many researchers believe to have been a CIA proprietary. Allegations have been made that Zapata was involved in drug trafficking from China and Latin America.

More about David Murdock

When he�s not tending one of at least 10 companies he controls, Murdock and his new wife tend horses at a mansion they just built on thousands of acres of countryside north of Los Angeles.

Murdock�s biggest job is heading Dole Food Co., the world�s largest fruit and vegetable producer with $3.8 billion in sales annually. He became CEO of the company about the time he sold Cannon Mills, converting the island of Lana�i in Hawaii from pineapple plantations to tourism.

Dole was separated from Castle & Cooke, another company Murdock heads, in
1995. With $308 million in sales last year, Castle & Cooke owns golf courses, country clubs and other resorts in California, Hawaii and Florida. It also just built the 166,000-square-foot Landmark Plaza, an office building in Raleigh.

Murdock also is CEO of a host of other companies: Huntington Tile; Yankie Hill Brick; Murdock Development Corp., another real-estate company; Goettel, an air conditioning manufacturer; Wiscassett Mills, a yarn spinner; Flexi-Van Leasing, a truck-chassis lessor; Stair Co., Murdock�s antiques auction house; and Ventura Farms, where Murdock breeds Arabian horses.

Murdock just built a new house near Los Angeles on the farms where he tends his horses and roses and orchids. After two divorces and the death of a third wife, he married Tracy Vakzad, an interior decorator. He also has two sons, David and Justin, who are involved in his businesses.

An active Republican, Murdock held a fund-raiser for presidential candidate George Bush in November at his farm.

�He�s extremely well educated, and about things you wouldn�t ordinarily expect,� Safrit said.

All pretty incredible for the son of a traveling salesman who dropped out of school in ninth grade.

Murdock began his career by building houses and offices in Phoenix after World War II. He founded a bank and lost nearly $100 million in the bear market of 1964.

Undaunted, he moved to Los Angeles and founded a tile-making company there. He bought more real estate and took over a company called Pacific Holdings Corp.

When news hit in 1982 that Pacific Holdings bid highest in a $413 million tender offer for Cannon Mills, residents here were stunned. It marked the end of an era, when patriarchal boss James W. Cannon reigned.

Back then, wages and pensions didn�t amount to much and the tiny, clapboard mill houses were often rickety. But retired workers recall stable jobs and secure lives. Cannon provided many services � police, trash collection, fire protection, recreation and even polio vaccines. It�s why the city, with a population now of about 38,000 � more than Salisbury � didn�t incorporate until 1984.

Residents were suspicious of Murdock from the start. To them, he was a stranger from far away with no background in textiles.

But Murdock appealed to the workers� strong anti-union sentiment, pledging cooperation and repeatedly denying rumors he might sell the mills. Then, after just three years � and months after workers had voted overwhelmingly against allowing a union to represent them � he sold them.

Only after he returned west did workers learn Murdock had used assets from the their pension fund to finance a bid to take over Occidental Petroleum. When the company bought its stock back from him at a $60-million premium, Murdock kept the profits.

Meanwhile, Murdock had stopped the pension fund and bought annuities to finance future obligations to retirees. The California firm handling the annuities later collapsed. In Kannapolis � where pensions had never been big to begin with � checks simply stopped coming. After the Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers Union filed suit on behalf of the retirees, Murdock settled for an undisclosed sum.

Folks here still remember that.

It could even be part of the reason why a majority of the mill workers voted in September to allow the Union of Needletrades, Industrial and Textile Employees to represent them under new Dallas-based owner, Pillowtex.

paroled indefinitely into the country (parole reviewable in six months) as
Cuban/Haitians entrants (status pending).

3. Palmieri and the use of the military in United States' domestic matters. 

By Frank Morales,

AFIB Editor's Note: An edited version of this article currently appears in
CovertAction Quarterly, Number 69, Spring/Summer 2000; it appears in Antifa
Info-Bulletin with the author's permission. 

Under the heading of "civil disturbance planning", the U.S. military is training troops and police to suppress democratic opposition in America. The master plan, Department of Defense Civil Disturbance Plan 55-2, is code-named, "Operation Garden Plot". Originated in 1968, the "operational plan" has been updated over the last three decades, most recently in 1991, and was activated during the Los Angeles "riots" of 1992, and more than likely during the recent anti-WTO "Battle in Seattle."

During the early stages of staff recruitment, commission Deputy Executive Director Victor H. Palmieri "described the process as a war strategy"(7) and so he might given the overwhelming presence within the commission and its' consultants of military and police officials. One quarter of over 200 consultants listed were big-city police chiefs, like Daryl F. Gates, former chief LAPD. Numerous police organizations, including the heavily funded Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (financiers of SWAT),

guided the commission's deliberations. No less than 30 police departments were
represented on or before the commission by their chiefs or deputy chiefs. A key player within the commission, "consultant" Anthony Downs, stated at the time that, "it would be far cheaper to repress future large-scale urban violence through police and military action than to pay for effective programs against remaining poverty." (8) As for the military, twelve generals, representing various branches of the armed services
appeared before the commission or served as contractors. The commission's
"Director of Investigations", Milan C. Miskovsky, was "on leave as assistant general
counsel of the treasury, and formerly connected to the Central Intelligence Agency."(9)

4. Palmieri and Globalism.

Seize the Moment (An excerpt)


On April 20, 1989, sixty men and women from the federal government, the law, business, universities, trade unions, and the media, from the United States and seven foreign countries, gathered at Arden House, in Harriman, New York, for the Seventy-sixth American Assembly, entitled "U.S. Interests in the 1990s: Managing the Global Economy." For three days, the participants discussed U.S. interests in the context of a global economic system that is changing substantially. This was the second in a series of American Assembly programs exploring U.S. international interests in the coming decade.

[Note:  One of the participants was Victor Palmieri.]

5. Palmieri, Confederation Life and Canada.


August 11, 1994, the date Confederation Life was seized by the Canadian
government and Michigan and Georgia insurance commissioners. Using the August date could reduce GIC recoveries by pension plan participants by as much as $90 million, ACLIC asserts, because using the 1994 date would give the annuitants a more favorable interest rate. Collectively, the group's members hold $1.4 billion in Confederation Life GICs.

Confederation Life's rehabilitation is overseen by David Dykhouse, a former Michigan insurance commissioner, and Victor Palmieri and Julian Burke, both senior officers in the Palmieri Company investment banking firm. Michigan was the US "port of entry" for Confederation Life, and so is regulated by the Michigan insurance commissioner, although the company is headquartered in Georgia.

6. Palmieri was sued in North Carolina regarding the Pinehurst Country Club.


Filed: 3 December 1996



McLEAN SECURITIES, INC., PURCELL CO., INC., (formerly Diamondhead


     Appeal by plaintiffs and defendants from order entered 28 December 1994 by Judge F. Fetzer Mills in Moore County Superior Court. Heard in the Court of Appeals 26 January 1996. Reassigned to a differently constituted panel for decision by order dated 14 October 1996.

    Kitchin, Neal, Webb & Futrell, P.A. by Henry L. Kitchin and Stephan R. Futrell, for plaintiffs.

    Van Camp, West, Hayes & Meacham, P.A. by James R. Van Camp and Michael
J. Newman, for defendants.

    WYNN, Judge.

    Throughout the 1970s, Diamondhead Corporation ("Diamondhead") developed
and sold lots and memberships in the Pinehurst Country Club. Diamondhead owned Pinehurst, Inc., which in turn owned Pinehurst Country Club, Inc. which operated the Pinehurst Country Club. Diamondhead also owned and operated Pinehurst Hotel and Country Club (later called Pinehurst Resort and Country Club), a large public resort consisting of a hotel, villas, condominiums, and a conference center.

    In the late 1970s, a dispute arose between Diamondhead and members of the Pinehurst Country Club concerning the nature and extent of the members' privileges. In January 1980, a group of Pinehurst Country Club members filed a class action lawsuit seeking a declaration of their rights. They contended that the defendants had made certain representations to induce them to purchase property in Pinehurst and to become members of the Pinehurst Country Club. That suit ended in the Final Consent Judgment which is at issue in the present case....


Excerpt from The Shadow Government by Daniel Guttman & Barry Willner � 2000

The 1971 Contract log for the Office of the Secretary (Finch at HEW) records that a corporation called the Inner City Fund received no fewer than five sole-source awards from the Secretary's office. Inner City Fund was a newly created firm founded by a handful of young men who arrived in the inner city via elite business schools and the Defense Department's system analysis shop. Founding member Pug Winokur explained that it was patterned after the typical influential Washington law work directly on major policy issues. Within a short period of its founding, the firm was serving in this role at OEO, EPA, the National Security Council and HEW.

CIF's first award of the fiscal year was OS-71-21. The Assistant Secretary for Population Affairs hired it to develop "meaningful objectives for family planning." ...Next came OS-71-87, a contract to study criteria for Federal support of higher education at a rate to the ICF principals of $254 per day. The sole source justification described ICF as "unique in the management of investigative teams simultaneously seeking program budget data and behavioral data concerning institutions of higher education necessary for interpreting budget data in the field...even RAND...lacked the skills to proceed without time-consuming model construction" and "personnel versed in the behavioral dimensions of institutional behavior."

Contract OS-71-110 turned ICF to national health policy.


Capricorn Holdings was formed by Pug Winokur right as he made his first investments in DynCorp and NHP in the late 1980's. No information is available that we have been able to locate regarding who provided the initial capital for Capricorn or for later investment partnerships and whether Harvard Endowment has been an investor.

Other partners in Capricorn hold numerous board positions of possible interest, including Dudley Mecum, who was a partner,  G. L. Ohrstrom & Co. (investment firm) from 1989 to 1997. He served as Group Vice  President  and Director,  Combustion
Engineering,  Inc. from 1985 to 1988,  and  previously as Vice  Chairman,  Peat,
Marwick & Mitchell.  He is a director of CCC Information  Services Group,  Inc.;
Citigroup Inc.; Lyondell, Inc.; and Suburban Propane Partners LLP.

1. Stone and George W. Bush.

From The Buying of the President, Charles Lewis, Center for Public Integrity:

The Bush name certainly would have made an impression on Eisenson's boss, Robert Stone, Jr., who was one of Harvard Management's directors. Stone was the "driving force" behind Harvard's Southwest oil and gas investments, according to Scott Sperling, who worked with Eisenson at Harvard. Stone himself was a player in the Texas oil and gas industry; at the time, he was the chairman of Kirby Exploration, an oil and gas transportation company based in Houston. As a longtime resident of Greenwich, Connecticut, he also knew the Bushes. His father in law, Godfrey Rockefeller, had invested in George Bush's oil drilling ventures in the 1940's. Stone's brother, Galen L. Stone, was the US envoy to Cyprus during the first Reagan-Bush Administration. In 1980 and 1988 he contributed to the elder Bush's presidential campaign. 

2. Kirby Company History.


Kirby Corporation is a marine transportation company engaged, through its subsidiaries, in the operation of vessels on the inland waterway system of
the United States and in United States coastwise trade. The history of Kirby can be traced back to 1921, when John Henry Kirby, a pioneer in the development of the Houston business community, formed Kirby Petroleum Company, an oil and gas exploration and development company.

Today, the name Kirby is a well recognized name in Houston, with the "Kirby
Building" and the "Kirby Mansion" in downtown Houston and a major Houston
street, "Kirby Drive," all named in John Henry Kirby's honor.

Kirby Petroleum Company operated as a Houston based independent oil and gas
exploration and development company until 1956 when, after the sale of its
producing properties, the remaining non-producing acreage was merged with
three other independent oil and gas companies to form Kirby VenSyn Petroleum
Company. As a result of the mergers, the Murchison family of Dallas, noted for its prior ownership of the Dallas Cowboys, owned approximately 35% of Kirby. The Murchison family remains shareholders of Kirby today.

More Kirby Company history.


From 1887, when at Cooper's recommendation a group of Boston investors engaged Kirby's legal services, until his bankruptcy in 1933, Kirby's business career wildly fluctuated. The Texas and Louisiana Land and Lumber Company and the Texas Pine Land Association, formed with his Boston associates to speculate in East Texas timberlands, provided Kirby with a small fortune. Those successes led him, in company with Bostonians Nathaniel D. Silsbee and Ellington Pratt, into the building of the Gulf, Beaumont and Kansas City Railway in 1896. The profitable sale of the railroad to the
Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe nearly coincided with the organization by Kirby and Patrick Calhoun in 1901 of the Houston Oil Company of Texas and the Kirby Lumber Company. Mutual distrust and charges of misrepresentation by Kirby and Calhoun led to receivership for both companies and prolonged litigation. Nonetheless, at one time the Kirby Lumber Company controlled more than 300,000 acres of East Texas pinelands and operated thirteen sawmills.

Kirby was a founder and five-time president of the Southern Pine Association, served two terms as president of the National Lumber Manufacturers' Association (1917-21), and functioned briefly during World War I as southern lumber director of the United States Shipping Board Emergency Fleet Corporation. He also served two terms in the Texas legislature and was a delegate to the 1916 Democratic national convention.

He shared the conviction of many late nineteenth and early twentieth century 
entrepreneurs that power naturally followed wealth, and he guarded against any social or political force that threatened the prerogatives of wealth. A life-long Democrat, except for a brief period in the 1920s, Kirby denounced labor movements as socialistic. He was a paternalistic, rigorous, but often generous employer, who considered labor unions anathema because he believed they inflamed the passion of otherwise contented and relatively prosperous workers. Personally convinced that Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal would destroy the very fabric of American life, Kirby co founded the Southern Committee to Uphold the Constitution and contributed his money and energies to other anti-New Deal organizations. Financial bankruptcy in 1933 ended his active control of his lumber company and of the Kirby Petroleum Company, which he had organized in 1920, although he continued to serve as chairman of the boards of both companies until his death, on November 9, 1940. See

By the end of March of that year a lawsuit had been filed by members of a
stock syndicate managed by two officers of the Baltimore Trust and Guaranty Company alleging misrepresentations made about the condition of the lumber company in the prospectus.  The petition further alleged that one month prior to the appointment of receivers, Kirby formed a holding company with B.F. Yoakum, president of the St. Louis and San Francisco Road, to which they transferred the majority of the Kirby Lumber Company stock, and that they formed the Houston, Beaumont and Northern Railroad Company, to which Kirby Lumber�s traction lines and other railroad properties were transferred.  In addition, the HB&N RR Co. was capitalized at $500,000 with
a bond issue of $1 million.  Yoakum loaned the company $600,000 and in return received all the bonds, half the stock and $18,000 in commissions. The newly formed company used half the loan proceeds plus an additional $18,000 to repay a prior loan to Yoakum and his commission for this loan. In 1906 Walter Monteith, brother of Edgar Monteith, Sr., later the attorney for Gibraltar Savings and Brown and Root, was appointed to act as receiver on behalf of the investors.   A settlement was reached in 1908.  Houston Oil owned several shallow oil wells in Nacogdoches County, all of the stock of Southwestern Oil Co and properties of Southern Oil Co, as well as stock in
Higgins Fuel and Oil Co., but for revenue it primarily relied on the stumpage agreement with Kirby Lumber.  Because of more efficient equipment and the demand for timber for the railroad industry, the lumber company was better able in the next few years to meet its contract requirements and virtually the same investors organized Houston Natural Gas Co. (HNG) in 1926.

Houston Pipe Line Co. was a wholly owned subsidiary of Houston Oil Company of
Texas, and its stockholders formed HNG as a separate corporation a year before the pipe line company completed constructing distribution gas lines, hoping to compete with Houston Gas and Fuel (HG&F), of which Captain James A. Baker was president.  HG&F had signed a contract to buy only from Houston Gulf Gas, and HNG therefore turned to the outlying areas and other cities in Harris County for customers.  Shortly before the stock market crash in 1929 Houston Gulf Gas bought out HG&F and then merged with United Gas Corporation, a holding company, 42% of which was bought by Pennzoil (Liedtke �s successor to Zapata) in 1965, then divested by the SEC in 1970, creating a separate investor-owned corporation, United Gas, Inc.�later Entex.  The
two gas companies merged in 1976 and were later merged into Enron. John H. Kirby incorporated Houston Natural Gas in 1925 with eleven subscribers to the initial issue of capital stock issued January 18, 1926: 

E.H. Buckner, president, 70 shares
Louis Seymour Zimmerman, Baltimore, 70 shares (president of Maryland Trust Co.)
George Mackubin, Baltimore, 70 shares
David Hannah, Houston, 40 shares
Judge H.O. Head, Sherman, Texas, 40 shares
McDonald Meachum, Houston, 40 shares
C.B. McKinney, Houston, 40 shares
H.M. Richter, Houston, 40 shares
George A. Hill, Jr., Houston, 35 shares (pres. in 1930s)
T.M. Kennerly, Houston, 35 shares
A.S. Henley, Houston, 20 shares

The following May 1,500 additional shares were issued, with 140 each bought by the largest three investors and Hannah and McKinney buying 80 more each. New shareholders of note were Samuel C. Davis (80), Thomas S. Maffit (80), John F. Shepley (80), Samuel W. Fordyce (80), and N.A. McMillan (70), all of St. Louis, Mo.  After that sale, the following geographical breakdown existed:
Houston -- 1,100
Baltimore -- 430
St. Louis -- 390

SEC filings for 1976, prior to the merger with Entex, show that directors of Houston Natural Gas ("HNG") included: 

1. John H. Duncan (also a member of the audit committee)--chairman of the board of Gulf Consolidated Services, Inc. in Houston and chairman of the executive committee of Gulf + Western Industries, Inc. in New York�since 1968, who owned 40,000 shares of HNG.

2. C. Thomas Clagett, Jr. (also a member of the audit committee), whose
occupation was investments in Washington, D.C.�who owned 252,226 shares
individually plus over 700,000 additional shares as trustee for family
3. J.A. Edwards, a board member since 1968, who was president of Liquid
Carbonic Corp., an HNG subsidiary (42,596 shares).
4. W.S. Farish III, who was shown to be president of Fluorex Corp., an
"international mineral and exploration company" in Houston (4,000 shares).
5. Robert R. Herring, chairman and CEO of HNG, director since 1964 (60,000
6. M.D. Matthews, vice-chairman of board (32,482 shares).
7. Neil D. Naiden, partner of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, a Washington, D.C.
law firm.
8. Charles Rathgeb, chairman and CEO of Comstock International, Ltd. in
Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Interestingly enough, Robert Herring was also president of Rice University in 1980 [G498639], and John Duncan�s brother, Charles, Jr. retired in 1996 as chairman of the Rice board. In 1926 HNG, a Texas corporation, borrowed funds from Maryland Trust,
secured by a trust indenture.  In September 1940 this loan was released when the Texas corporation�s stock and all assets were acquired by a new Delaware corporation of the same name, along with three other subsidiary companies. HNG located its offices in 1927 in the Petroleum Building built by Irishman J.S. Cullinan, where it remained until 1967, when it became the core tenant of Kenneth Schnitzer�s office building at 1200 Travis.  The primary attorney for the company was shareholder George Hill�of Kennerly, Williams, Lee, Hill & Sears�the father of Raymond Hill of Mainland Savings fame, to whom Pete Brewton devoted an entire chapter of his book.  The foremost Houstonian shareholder was David Hannah who had arrived in Houston from Scotland in 1908.  A descendant Hannah was also president of Ayrshire Corp. in 1972 [E150920] and one of Jon Lindsay�s biggest contributors, along with his
associate Billy Burge.

In 1956 Houston Oil Co. was sold to Atlantic Refining Co. for a quarter-billion dollars.  In 1966 Atlantic acquired Richfield Oil Corp., a
company put in bankruptcy in 1928 when it had over $10 million in judgment claims resulting from canceled oil leases at the Elk Hills Naval Reserve to Pan American Petroleum, received by Richfield from Edward L. Doheny in 1928. The case was settled in 1933 for $5 million. 1930-31 after broker Henry L. Doherty & Co. (60 Wall Street) made an exchange offer for 4 shares of
Richfield for one share of Cities Service Co. stock.  To protect its interest in the stock, Cities later purchased a large block of Richfield and Pan American bonds. 

3. Kirby and Hollywood Marine, Inc.

Barge merger. Kirby Corp. has agreed to merge Hollywood Marine Inc., a
privately owned inland tank barge company, into Kirby Inland Marine Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Kirby. Kirby will purchase Hollywood for about $325 million -- $90 million in Kirby common stock, $135 million in cash and the remaining $100 million in debt assumption. The transaction is expected to close in October of 1999.

At a forum this week, mayoral candidate George Greanias said opponent Rob
Mosbacher should not criticize other contenders until he explains "why your 
intracoastal barge company moved its headquarters to Ozona to avoid taxation."

It was a reference to Hollywood Marine Inc., in which businessman Mosbacher
and his family are investors.

The recent integration of Kirby Inland Marine and Hollywood Marine - two well-known locally-based barge and towing companies - has been an opportunity for Kirby to demonstrate the collective safety and service standards previously associated with both companies and now the driving philosophy of the combined organization. From its consolidated corporate head office in the 55 Waugh Drive building in Houston, Kirby Inland Marine is headed by its President, Mr. Steve Valerius.

Mosbacher moved his energy company offices to 55 Waugh Drive.

A. DynCorp's role in the Gulf War.

Note from a member of the Solari Network:

Have you followed the involvement of DynCorp in the Gulf war?  When I
was researching (an article on chemical and bio-warfare) I got close to a number of people involved with the Vets and they had developed a tremendous amount of research material and, I seem to recall that DynCorp's name was turning up all over the
 place - to do with Anthrax vaccines etc.  One school of thought was that the HIV/Squalene was concealed within the Anthrax and other CBW vaccines.

B. DynCorp's role in the Kosovo war.

Note from David Crockett Williams [emperors-clothes]

The London Times confirms that the KLA-CIA Link Goes Way Back -  Times article  follows our Introduction:

Here's an excerpt from HUMANITARIAN SPIES:

"'Negotiated' (that is, 'coerced') under threat of NATO bombing last October,  the Verification agreement let the OSCE send unarmed mediators  into Kosovo,  supposedly to help defuse tensions. However everything about the  Verification  mission suggests military intelligence, not mediation.

 "It was run by William Walker. Walker had no background as a mediator. He wasn't even an expert in Balkans history or current politics. What he did  know about was counter-insurgency and black ops. His role in Iran-Contra and his achievements in apologizing for the murderous El Salvador death squads  all but prove he is a high-placed intelligence operative. (See "MEET MR.  MASSACRE at

 "The U.S. verification team was composed of employees of DynCorp, a Virginia  company that has grown rich off Government work. At the 1992 Senate  hearings  on R. James Woolsey's appointment as head of the CIA, Woolsey  commented: "I  own less than one-quarter of one percent of the -- diluted shares of a  company named DynCorp here in the Washington, D.C. area. And the corporation  has, from time to time, had a handful of very small contracts with the  Central Intelligence Agency." Ahh, sweet understatement. DynCorp's "very  small contracts" have included covert work for the Company in  Columbia and  Peru.

"...Given this command structure, doesn't it stand to reason  that the U.S.  goal was a) to gather military intelligence and b) to establish  command-relations with the Kosovo Liberation Army? The goal was to bond with  the KLA which killed and is still killing ethnic Serbs and  ethnic Albanian  "collaborators" Serbian State policemen, power line repairmen, school  officials, Yugoslav troops, even state-employed wood gatherers - just like  the Latin American death squads Walker "observed" during previous CIA  assignments. " (END OF EXCERPT from Humanitarian Spies at )

Now the (London) Sunday Times has confirmed our charges. The OSCE  Verification Mission in Kosovo for 6 months prior to the bombing of  Yugoslavia was indeed a phony, a cover for the CIA to set up liaison with the KLA and spy on Yugoslavia. Walker was indeed creating another death squad  operation - just as he did in El Salvador. DynCorps, which supplied the  'verifiers', is indeed a 'Company' company. The US horror-show government  has  made fools of the 'honest broker' Euro leaders - that is, if  there are any  honest Euro leaders.

CIA aided Kosovo guerrilla army 
by Tom Walker and Aidan Laverty � (posted 3-12-00) From the Sunday Times (London)

AMERICAN intelligence agents have admitted they helped to train  the Kosovo  Liberation Army before Nato's bombing of Yugoslavia. The disclosure angered  some European diplomats, who said this had undermined moves for  a political  solution to the conflict between Serbs and Albanians. Central  Intelligence

Agency officers were ceasefire monitors in Kosovo in 1998 and 1999,  developing ties with the KLA and giving American military  training manuals  and field advice on fighting the Yugoslav army and Serbian police.

When the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe  (OSCE), which  co-ordinated the monitoring, left Kosovo a week before air strikes began a  year ago, many of its satellite telephones and global positioning systems  were secretly handed to the KLA, ensuring that guerrilla commanders could  stay in touch with NATO and Washington. Several KLA leaders had  the mobile  phone number of General Wesley Clark, the NATO commander.

European diplomats then working for the OSCE claim it was betrayed by an  American policy that made air strikes inevitable. Some have questioned the  motives and loyalties of William Walker, the American OSCE head  of mission.

"The American agenda consisted of their diplomatic observers,  aka the CIA,  operating on completely different terms to the rest of Europe and the  OSCE,"  said a European envoy.

Several Americans who were directly involved in CIA activities  or close to  them have spoken to the makers of Moral Combat, a documentary to be  broadcast  on BBC2 tonight, and to The Sunday Times about their clandestine roles.  Walker dismissed suggestions that he had wanted war in Kosovo,  but admitted  the CIA was almost certainly involved in the countdown to air strikes.

Initially some "diplomatic observers" arrived, followed in October by a  much  larger group that was eventually swallowed up into the OSCE's "Kosovo  Verification Mission".

Walker said: "Overnight we went from having a handful of people to 130 or  more. Could the agency have put them in at that point? Sure they could.  It's  their job. But nobody told me."

Walker, who was nominated by Madeleine Albright, the American  secretary of  state, was intensely disliked by Belgrade. He had worked briefly for the  United Nations in Croatia. Ten years earlier he was the American  ambassador to El Salvador when Washington was helping the government there  to suppress  leftist rebels while supporting the contra guerrillas against the Sandinista  government in Nicaragua.

Some European diplomats in Pristina, Kosovo's capital, concluded from  Walker's background that he was inextricably linked with the CIA. The  picture  was muddied by the continued separation of American "diplomatic  observers"  from the mission. The CIA sources who have now broken their  silence say the  diplomatic observers were more closely connected to the agency.

"It was a CIA front, gathering intelligence on the KLA's arms and  leadership," said one.

Another agent, who said he felt he had been "suckered in" by an organization  that has run amok in post-war Kosovo, said: "I'd tell them which hill to  avoid, which wood to go behind, that sort of thing."

The KLA has admitted its long-standing links with American and European  intelligence organizations. Shaban Shala, a KLA commander now involved in attempts to destabilize majority Albanian villages beyond Kosovo's border in  Serbia proper, claimed he had met British, American and Swiss agents in  northern Albania in 1996.

Belgrade has alleged the CIA also helped to arm the KLA, but this was  denied  by the guerrillas and agency sources.

 "It was purely the Albanian Diaspora helping their brothers," said FlorinKrasniqi, a New York builder and one of the KLA's biggest financiers. He  described how sniper rifles were exported from America using a  loophole in  federal law that allowed them to be shipped to "hunting clubs".

Armour-piercing Barratt rifles made their way to the KLA's "hunting club"  in  Albania.

Agim Ceku, the KLA commander in the latter stages of the conflict, had  established American contacts through his work in the Croatian  army, which  had been modernized with the help of Military Professional Resources Inc,  an  American company specializing in military training and procurement. This  company's personnel were in Kosovo, along with others from a similar  company,  DynCorps, that helped in the American-backed programme for the Bosnian  army.

C. Note re: Ron Brown's fatal plane crash

Note from a Member of the Solari Action Network:

My understanding is that several people scheduled to go on the flight cancelled at the last moment. One was the Chairman of DynCorp. That would have been Pug Winokur.

D. DynCorp's role in Columbia

For ongoing coverage of the war in Columbia, see Narco News at  and From the Wilderness at 

E. DynCorp's role in DOJ Asset Forfeiture

In 1996, The Asset Forfeiture Fund at DOJ had about $450 million dollars of total forfeitures, including the tail end of the BCCI  seizure. About $140 MM was real property at an average value of $149,000 per real estate sale. This indicates seizures of HUD-type homes, rather than of drug lords. The DOJ has refused to disclose Asset Forfeiture Fund financials since 1996.

DynCorp only did knowledge management and systems and administrative support. They did not do any of the servicing, selling, disposition, management of assets, etc.

OK, now lets look at relative values. Hamilton was in charge of cross cutting support for HUD loan sales. Hamilton sold about $2 billion plus a year plus portfolio strategy, saved the government about $500MM a year on revenues of $2BB plus, and were paid $10MM.

DynCorp is getting paid $60MM for a comparable, albeit more physically spread out role, for $450MM a year.

This does not compute. If you look at the whole operation, what is spent to kickback to state and local officials and what is spent on contractor and knowledge management and informants, including fronting expenses of setting up a seizure like the one attempted on Goldman and PNC.

Is the purpose of this infrastructure----- combined with what Treasury is doing with FinCen----to support asset forfeitures, or is the purpose of asset forfeitures  to fund the creation of a very deep knowledge management and enforcement network that can control down to the street block level any where in America?

Someone appears to be  building a powerful information machine inside the Asset Forfeiture Fund womb.

F.  DynCorp's role in GETS: Government Emergency Telecommunications System (GETS).

DynCorp manages the system. Lockheed puts up the satellites. How does this operation and partnership fit in with and Applied Geomatics software, as well as the controversy with the Canadians over Promis? Does this have anything to do with the failure of the new Iridium Satellite system?

G. DynCorp's POP.

DynCorp values its stock in its 2000 proxy as having a price/earnings multiple equal to 30X income. With this rule of thumb it should be possible to estimate the value of various wars and US policies to DynCorp's shareholders.

Whether capital gains on NHP and WMF sale, or on a potential seizure of $4.7 billion from Goldman Sachs & PNC, how much money did and could Capricorn and Harvard and DynCorp make as a result of the targeting of Catherine Austin Fitts?

H.  DynCorp & Capricorn Holdings.

Was Capricorn created so that the real investors in 1988 did not have to disclose their involvement in DynCorp? Is Harvard invested in war in the Gulf, Kosovo, Columbia and the War on Drugs through Capricorn?

I.  DynCorp and Oklahoma City.

The Murrah building contained valuable records on the Gulf War syndrome, Waco, HUD defaulted loans said to contain substantial financial fraud. What can DynCorp tell us, if anything,  about what federal knowledge was lost in the bombing and how that may have impacted a variety of public and private parties?
