October , 2010 -- Barack Obama's mother is key to uncovering his Jewishness....?
According to the only published biographical material available today, Dunham not only worked in Indonesia and Pakistan for the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) i.e. the CIA, in Java, the Regional Southeast Asia Office of the Ford Foundation in Jakarta, the Asian Development Bank for Pakistan Agricultural Development Bank’s Gujranwala Agricultural Development Program in Lahore and Gujranwala, all reportedly CIA fronts involved, respectively, in the post-Sukarno agency activities in Indonesia and CIA mujahidin support activities in Pakistan, but she also spoke to varying degrees of fluency Bahasa Indonesian, Javanese, Urdu, Russian, and more interestingly, French. Dunham's presence in Indonesia and Pakistan would explain her knowledge of Bahasa Indonesian, Javanese, and Urdu, and her taking Russian at the University of Hawaii along with Obama's Kenyan father, Barack Obama, Sr., explains her knowledge of that language. However, it is Dunham's knowledge of French and the only other reported country she visited in Africa, other than Kenya, Ghana, that raises suspicions as to her true mission when she was in West Africa.
Dunham may have also visited Kenya after the birth of her son. She expressed a desire to move there with Barack, Jr. to be with her husband. Dunham revealed that she planned to move to Kenya with her new born son to be with her husband.
While working for the various CIA front entities, including the Ford Foundation, World Bank, and International Labor Organization, Dunham also spent time in Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Philippines, and Thailand, all of which are of no surprise considering her Asian ties, but also, unusually, Ghana. Dunham re-applied for her U.S. passport in Honolulu on April 27, 1986. She supposedly left Hawaii for Indonesia in 1988 to complete her PhD in anthropology from the University of Hawaii. However, she also reportedly lived in Pakistan from 1987 to 1992 working for the Asian Development Bank....
Dunham was officially registered as a student at the University of Hawaii from the fall semester of 1984 to the summer semester of 1992, when she finally earned her PhD. Dunham's two-year employment contract for the Ford Foundation ended in December 1982, before which she may have been involved as a Javanese speaker with the Suriname exile community to help plan the CIA's overthrow of the country's left-wing dictator Desi Bouterse. Dunham reportedly returned to Jakarta to work for Ford until 1984. There is no indication as to when Dunham went to Ghana but in the mid-1980s, the country and one of its northern neighbors, Burkina Faso, were hotbeds for CIA activity...
It is also not known whether Barack Obama, Jr's first visit to Kenya, in 1987, before he attended Harvard Law School, coincided with his mother's visit to Ghana and whether the two had met in Africa as they reportedly did when Obama visited his mother in Indonesia in 1981 before he went to stay with "friends" in Pakistan and India, and possibly later, when his mother was supposedly in Pakistan from 1987 to 1992, at the same time she was supposedly studying Javanese village life in Indonesia for her PhD at the University of Hawaii.
The inconsistencies in Dunham's employment, academic, and travel records coincide with suspicions concerning Obama's college transcripts, all sealed, from Occidental College, a favorite CIA recruiting campus, and Columbia University, a favorite CIA think tank contractor, as well as his post-Columbia employment in New York City for Business International Corporation, a well-known CIA front company responsible mainly for reaching out to Communist and Marxist governments and political parties around the world.
In 1987, two leaders in West Africa had the full attention of the CIA's Africa division: Flight Lieutenant Jerry Rawlings of Ghana, who overthrew Ghana's civilian leadership in a 1981 coup, and Captain Thomas Sankara of Burkina Faso, formerly Upper Volta. Although Rawlings was considered a leftist, his commitment to sustainable development project earned him the support of the World Bank and possibly, "Mrs. Rural Development Micro-loan" Stanley Ann Dunham, ( Jewish ). Hence, we have Dunham's only reported visit to the African continent.
However, Rawlings commitment to sustainable development and anti-corruption did not save him from an attempted CIA-backed coup in 1983, oddly during one of those periods where Dunham's whereabouts, following her departure from the Ford Foundation in New York, remain uncertain. It should be recalled that one of the reasons for the CIA's Airlift Africa project that brought Dunham's first husband from Kenya to Hawaii in 1960 was to influence future leaders of newly-independent African states. Obama Sr's Kenyan mentor, Tom Mboya, became the arch-nemesis of Africa's most popular socialist leader, Kwame Nkrumah. Nkrumah was ousted in a CIA coup in 1966, one year after Dunham's second husband, Lolo Soetoro, Barack Obama's step-father, assisted General Suharto in the CIA-planned coup against President Sukarno of Indonesia.
In 1983, a Ghanaian named Godfrey Osei tried to launch a coup against Rawlings, considered to be a Marxist by the CIA. Osei managed to escape from a Ghanaian prison with the help of the CIA in June 1983 and he ended up in the United States where he made plans for another coup against Rawlings. Osei was based in Queens,, New York a few months after Dunham's contract with the Ford Foundation, where she worked for Peter Geithner, the father of present Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, expired and the Congress banned any further CIA attempts to overthrow Bouterse in Suriname. However, the ban did not extend to Ghana or Burkina Faso.
Osei was supported by the CIA and Mossad during his exile in New York. Apparently, Israeli crime syndicates were promised lucrative gambling casino, diamond, gold, cocoa, and coffee concessions in Ghana after Rawlings was overthrown and Osei was installed as president. Osei arranged with the CIA to purchase post-Falklands War surplus Argentinean weapons from a Texas arms broker who was also linked to the Mossad...
In 1986, a tug called the Norbistor departed Argentina with weapons bound for Ghana. Osei had also contracted with CIA mercenaries who were veterans of wars in Rhodesia, Laos and El Salvador. The mercenaries were also linked to a Solomon Schwartz of New York, someone who had suspected Mossad links. Upon setting sail for Ghana, the Norbistor's captain and mercenaries mutinied and docked near Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where they were arrested and jailed by Brazilian police for illegally transporting weapons into Brazilian waters. There are reports that since Osei, who was witnessed wearing Nazi SS regalia and believed to be mentally unstable, was ordered not to join the ship on its voyage to Ghana and that the CIA mercenaries subsequently aborted the mission, the entire CIA operation to land mercenaries and weapons in Accra after rendezvousing with Ghanaian soldiers off the Ivory Coast to start a coup against Rawlings had been compromised by the CIA on purpose. Two Americans jailed in Brazil later "escaped" from prison and returned to the United States. Rawlings, who may have also been tipped off to the coup plot, began to moderate his leftist position and announced plans for a return to civilian rule.
However, the CIA was not as sanguine about Rawling's colleague to the north, Sankara, the leftist leader of Burkina Faso who praised Fidel Castro and Che Guevara. Sankara, like Daniel Ortega in Nicaragua, became public enemies as far as the CIA was concerned. If Dunham was anywhere near West Africa in 1987, with her command of French, the language of Burkina Faso, she would, with her experiences with Indonesia's coup and, possibly, attempted coups in Ghana and Suriname, have been a perfect fit for the CIA to act as a liaison with French intelligence and Burkina Faso government coup plotters in Ouagadougou, the Burkinabe capital; Abidjan, the French-speaking Ivorian capital; and Accra, a CIA support station for a planned move against Sankara. The CIA's operations against Sankara also reportedly involved a number of CIA-backed English-speaking guerrilla assets in West Africa, including Charles Taylor of Liberia, Foday Sankoh of Sierra Leone, and Yahiya Jammeh of Gambia. All three also enjoyed close relations with Libya's Qaddafi, ( MOSSAD ).... Taylor and Jammeh would later overthrow the civilian leaders of Liberia and Gambia, respectively, with CIA help... Sankoh would head the Sierra Leone Revolutionary United Front (RUF) that would help plunge the country into a bloody civil war that was marked by the RUF's penchant for chopping off of the limbs of children.
In October 1987, Sankara praised Guevara at a commemoration ceremony honoring the 20th anniversary of the execution of the Cuban revolutionary leader at the hands of a CIA hit squad in Bolivia. Sankara said, in praise of Guevara's revolutionary ideals, "revolutionaries can be killed but you cannot kill ideas." Sankara also rejected aid from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank because he did not want to subject Burkina Faso to debt and taking orders from foreign powers. Sankara pressed for public health care, roads, railways, rural development, and pushing back desertification of the one-time French colonial backwater known as Upper Volta. Upon making his decision to reject IMF and World bank loans and grants, Sankara stated at a news conference, "We must speak in one voice, saying this debt cannot be paid. And since I am the lone voice, I will be assassinated. We must say together, we cannot pay, because we have to work to build a future for our people. If only Burkina Faso refuses to pay, I will not be here at the next conference."
Two weeks after making those remarks, on October 15, 1987, Sankara's second-in-command, Captain Blaise Campaore, walked into a room where Sankara was sitting and fired two shots at Sankara who slumped in his chair and died... Campaore had coordinated his coup with the CIA station at the US embassy in Ouagadougou and the French General Directorate for External Security (DGSE) station at the French embassy..... There was also strong suspicion of Mossad involvement in the coup. Apparently, Qaddafi had also soured on Sankara, possibly because of his pan-Africanist revolutionary ideas, something Qaddafi reserved for himself, and quietly supported the French- and American-backed coup...
The voice of the man who said, "As an army at the service of the revolution, the National Popular Army will have no place for any soldier who looks down on, scorns, or brutalizes his people . . . this will be a struggle against those who starve the people, the agricultural speculators and capitalists of all types . . . health care available to everyone . . . trade with all countries on an equal footing and on the basis of mutual benefit . . . it fills me with indignation to think of the Palestinians, who an inhuman humanity has decided to replace with another people -- a people martyred only yesterday . . . I wish to also feel close to my comrades of Nicaragua, whose harbors are mined, whose villages are bombed, and who, despite everything , face their destiny with courage and clear-headedness . . . the most pitiful and appalling -- yes, the most appalling -- record in terms of arrogance, insolence, and incredible stubbornness, is held by a small country in the Middle East, Israel. With the complicity of its powerful protector, the United States -- which words cannot describe -- Israel has continued to defy the international community for more than twenty years . . . Ideas do not die," that voice was gone.
It is not certain what role, if any, Barack Obama's mother played in the coup against and assassination of Sankara in 1987. But in 2009, Obama and the First Lady feted Sankara's assassin, Campaore, and his wife at a reception in New York at the time of the UN General Assembly summit. Sankara's ideas about non-interference in the affairs of other countries, health care for all, rejection of international banking schemes, and self-sufficiency obviously fell on deaf ears for the first African-American president of the United States, who appears more interested in backing CIA machinations against his own cousins on the African continent.... However by meeting Campaore last year and snubbing Suriname's president Bouterse this year, Obama may have been paying homage to the CIA activities of his dear old mom, the lady, who, like her son, has tremendous gaps in her employment and travel record....( Jewish Sayyanim obviously...)
About Stanley Ann Dunham
***Here in the Seattle area I have at least fifty
cousins, maybe a hundred. Yesterday at a family
gathering of eighteen people, I was told a story
about President Obama's mother by a "Relative"
of old Mentifex here.
When "Relative" was a thirteen-year-old girl
in the eighth grade at Eckstein Middle School
in Seattle, she was very much a "loner" and her
best friend was another loner who called herself
Ann, but who had been named Stanley by her father
who had very much wanted a boy instead of a girl.
Ann/Stanley and "Relative" did loner things
like sleeping over at each other's house,
with just the two girls present. However,
since girls are born with all their ova
already present in their miniature ovaries,
half of President Obama's genetic make-up
was there in one ovary of Ann Stanley.
My Relative told me over dinner yesterday
that Ann Stanley was very much a "leftie."
The two girls would walk down a Seattle
street together, and Ann Stanley would talk
about the "Earth Angel" song that was so
seductive that it was not allowed to be
played on the radio.
Ann Stanley's father (Obama's grandfather)
got mad at his daughter for two things.
He did not like it when my Relative and
his daughter would wear each other's clothes.
One girl wore the other girl's dress at times,
and the other girl wore a skirt of the other.
Teenage girls trade clothes all the time,
but Obama's grandfather did not like it.
After eighth grade, Ann Stanley's father
moved the family to Mercer Island, which
is a heavily Jewish enclave just across
one bridge from Seattle, and just across
another bridge from the house of Bill Gates
on Lake Washington.
The second thing that President Obama's
grandfather got mad about was when his
roly-poly daughter violated a dietary
restriction and ate something that she
was not supposed to eat. My Relative says
that Ann Stanley would fast for a week,
but when she ate something that she was
not supposed to eat, her father was angry.
Eventually the father moved the family
even further away, back to Hawaii. Five
years later at age eighteen, my Relative's
friend gave birth to a half-black, possibly
Jewish son named Barack Hussein Obama...
KENYA is a MAJOR MOSSAD HUB.....
CIA concerned about revelations from Jonestown massacre; Jones link to Hawaii during Obama's parents presence there....
A CIA memorandum for the record, dated November 26, 1980, in the interim period between the defeat of President Jimmy Carter, largely due to the CIA-engineered "October Surprise" -- arms for no Iranian-held US hostages until after the election --and the inauguration of Ronald Reagan as president and former CIA director George H W Bush as Vice President, states that the CIA was concerned about a lawsuit brought by fifteen next-of-kin of the victims of the 1978 massacre at the People's Temple in Guyana.
The deaths of 918 American citizens at the People's Temple compound, run by Reverend Jim Jones, a one-time associate of CIA officer Dan Mitrione in Rio de Janeiro, was widely blamed on the zealous and pro-Soviet communist ideas of Jones. There was clearly an attempt by the CIA to link Jonestown to the governments of the Soviet Union, Cuba, Albania, and North Korea. Mitrione, operating under US Agency for International Development (USAID/CIA) cover while training the Uruguayan police in torture tactics, was executed by Uruguayan Tupamaro guerrillas in 1970. The Jonestown massacre represented the largest number of deaths of Americans from an event other than a natural disaster until the False Flag attacks of September 11, 2001...., an inside Job par excellence.
The November 26 memo states: "Silver [CIA General Counsel Daniel B. Silver] reported that 15 survivors of victims of the Jonestown Massacre have filed suit against the CIA. This opens up the possibility that under the rules of discovery we may have to provide their attorneys with sensitive information." [emphasis added] Depuity CIA director Frank carlucci chaired the November 26 meeting at which Jonestown was discussed. Carlucci was Donald Rumsfeld's mentor during the Nixon administration and was key in the CIA-led assassination of Congolese nationalist leader Patrice Lumumba in 1961 in Leopoldville. Carlucci also served as Secretary of Defense in the latter part of the Reagan administration and later became chairman of The Carlyle Group...
Jones was invited to establish his religious cult compound in Guyana by Guyanese Prime Minister Forbes Burnham, who had toppled his Marxist predecessor, Cheddi Jagan, from power in 1963 with the help of the CIA and, again, engineered Burnham's electoral victory against Jagan in 1968.
There have long been charges that the CIA ran Jonestown as part of the MK-ULTRA mind control program, referred to by then-CIA director Richard Helms as "behavioral science," established by CIA chief scientist Dr. Sidney Gottlieb...
In Part V of WMR's series on Barack Obama's family and the CIA, Jonestown figures prominently in Gottlieb's MK-ULTRA activities at the University of Hawaii, the alma mater of Obama's parents:
The presence of a Jonestown de-programmer on the CIA-SAIC [remote viewing para-psychology/psych-war] team in noteworthy. On August 31, 2007, WMR reported: “During the time of the Jonestown massacre, the People’s Temple’s ship, the ‘Cudjoe,’ was en route to Trinidad with members of the Temple on board. Temple members soon set up operations in Trinidad and Grenada, where [Prime Minister Eric] Gairy, a CIA client, who, in a 1977 speech before the UN General Assembly, called for the UN to establish an Agency for Psychic Research into Unidentified Flying Objects and the Bermuda Triangle, was in charge. According to the Oakland Tribune, the St. George’s University Medical School in Grenada had on its staff one Dr. Peter Bourne, the son of the university’s vice chancellor Sir Geoffrey Bourne. Peter Bourne is a graduate of the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR), where he studied the psychological effects of stress on those in combat. He also served one year in Vietnam as the head of the Army’s psychiatric research team. Bourne later became an Assistant UN Secretary General and an adviser to then-Congressman Bill Richardson. It was under the guise of rescuing American medical students at the university, that the Reagan administration launched a 1983 invasion to overthrow Bernard Coard, who had ousted and executed Bishop in a coup. Both Bournes said the medical students were never in any danger. [Some believe that author Robert Ludlum got the idea for CIA mind-controlled assassins in his novel "The Bourne Identity" and its sequels from Geoffrey Bourne's work.]
The Jonestown connection to the U.S. war in Southeast Asia does not end there. The U.S. ambassador to Guyana at the time of the Jonestown massacre was John Burke, who served with his Deputy Chief of Mission Richard Dwyer, were allegedly working for the CIA in Bangkok during the Vietnam war. Dwyer was wounded in the Port Kaituma shootings where [Representative Leo] Ryan and the others were killed. On Sept. 27, 1980, Jack Anderson reported that Dwyer was a CIA agent and a friend of Jones. Anderson reported that on one of the tapes made during the mass suicide Jones was heard saying, ‘Get Dwyer out of here before something happens to him.’ Dwyer reportedly left Guyana for Grenada after the massacre. The US Consular Officer at the embassy in Georgetown, Guyana was Richard McCoy, who allegedly liaised with Jim Jones and was a U.S. Air Force intelligence official. Another alleged CIA employee, operating under State Department cover, was Dan Webber, who also visited the Jonestown the day after the massacre. Joe Holsinger, Ryan’s assistant and friend, later said that he believed that Jonestown was a massive mind control experiment and that the CIA and military intelligence was involved in the program....”
After the Jonestown Massacre, the CIA attempted to re-locate members of its Laotian Hmong covert army, who sought refuge in Thailand after the fall of Laos to the communist Pathet Lao, to the abandoned Jonestown compound. The U.S. personnel in Georgetown, Guyana, Burke and Dwyer, were both involved with supporting the CIA's Hmong army when they were based in Thailand.
John D. Blacken, the deputy chief of mission at the U.S. embassy in Jonestown from July 1976 to March 1978, told The Washington Star (December 7, 1978) that, "I know of no CIA interest in Jones or his colony . . . I couldn't imagine why any of the intelligence agencies would care what Jones and his group were doing in this out-of-the-way place." However, Georgetown was a small but active CIA station. Richard Welch was the CIA station chief in Georgetown during the CIA's anti-Jagan activities in the mid-1960s. In 1976, Welch was assassinated in Athens when he was serving as the CIA station chief there. Welch's official cover was deputy chief of mission in Georgetown, the same job held by Blacken. Blacken was in Georgetown for most of the time after Jones had established his compound in Guyana in 1974.
Burke later admitted that there was "fairly constant contact" between the U.S. embassy and the Jonestown office in Georgetown, according to The Star.
When Representative Leo J. Ryan (D-CA) visited Jonestown on a fact-finding mission in November 1978, hours prior to his being assassinated by an alleged People's Temple member at Port Kaituma airport while in the company of Dwyer, the head CIA agent in Georgetown, he was no stranger to the covert activities of the CIA. After Ryan's death, former CBS newsman Daniel Schorr revealed that Ryan was his source for information on a covert CIA program to arm rebel factions in Angola and Lebanon in 1975. The CIA was incensed over the leak, which later resulted in a congressional ban on such assistance. Schorr was forced to resign from CBS in 1976 after he was found to have leaked a classified House Intelligence Committee report to The Village Voice that was extremely critical of then-Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. Schorr refused to name the House committee source for the leaked document...
Brazilian law enforcement was concerned that Jonestown was being used as a weigh station in a transit route for drugs from South America to North America. Jones and Mitrione had appeared on the Brazilian police's radar screen in 1962, when Mitrione was posted by the CIA to Rio under State Department cover. Before arriving in Rio, Jones was in Hawaii from 1961 to 1962, and was said to have been working with the CIA station in Honolulu. However, Jones also had traveled to Georgetown, Guyana in October 1961, where he gave an anti-communist and anti-Castro speech while the CIA was trying to stir up anti-Jagan activity in the country prior to its 1963 coup that brought Burnham to power.
In the early 1960s, the same time frame that Jones and the Obamas were in Hawaii and when the University of Hawaii was being used as one of five favored universities for CIA "behavioral science" work, as later revealed by Helms, the CIA was known to be using LSD in brainwashing experiments. According to a letter written to The Washington Post, printed on March 26, 1983, Canadian Member of Parliament from Winnipeg David Orlikow wrote, "I am writing to attest to an additional instance of American callousness -- the CIA-sponsored brainwashing experiments performed on unsuspecting Canadian citizens. In those CIA-funded experiments during the late 1960s and early 1960s, patients at a Montreal mental hospital were subjected to some or all of the following procedures. They were given LSD and were 'depatterned' by receiving large doses of drugs/or intensive electro-shocks two or three times a day until they were reduced to a vegetative state. Some patients were subjected to "psychic driving' -- tape recordings repeated the same message over and over when played through speakers in the patients' pillows or headphones from 6 am until 9 pm each day until the message had been repeated some one-quarter to one-half million times. Finally, to make some of the patients forget what had been done to them, powerful drugs were administered that caused them to sleep for a week to 10 days . . . my wife was one of the patients used as a guinea pig in the CIA-sponsored brainwashing experiments . . . The CIA files relating to this program were ordered destroyed in 1973, but due to an oversight a limited portion of those documents survived and were found four years later."
A year after the Jonestown massacre, the February 11, 1979, Guyana Chronicle newspaper, discovered in the CIA archives, reported that "The nation was staggered last week as police reported the seizure of an estimated one million dollars in marijuana in Georgetown." The seizure occurred a few months after the Jonestown Massacre, lending credence to the Brazilian police suspicions that the Jonestown compound was a drug transit point. The article added, "the police believe the bulk of the dope is coming into Guyana from overseas . . . Some of the dope may be coming in by ocean-going vessels. Seizures in the past also show that is coming in through incoming flights at Timehri Airport."
In December 1962, Jones was posted to Belo Horizonte where he lived with his wife and four children, Brazil where he reported to the US Vice Consul, Jon Lodeesen, also a CIA agent who had previously been posted to Honolulu, working for a CIA covert operation. The presence of Jones and Lodeesen in Hawaii was at the same time that Barack Obama, Sr. and Stanley Ann Dunham, ( Jewish ) were attending a Russian language class at the University of Hawaii, having been introduced to one another by Dunham's father, Stanley Dunham, the Hawaii connection for the CIA's Airlift Africa project that brought Obama, Sr. to Hawaii from Kenya for political indoctrination as a CIA asset who would later return to Kenya to assist the CIA's top man in the newly-independent nation, Tom Mboya.
Barack Obama, Jr. was enrolled at Occidental College in Los Angeles in 1979, one year after the Jonestown Massacre was hyped as being carried out by a crazed Marxist religious cult leader who forced his flock to commit mass suicide. Obama was a member of the Marxist Club at Occidental. In 1978, Occidental was the target of a major CIA recruiting effort, as previously reported by WMR.
President Obama's current poor mental state, which has his staff and even Vice President Biden reportedly concerned about his fitness to carry out his presidential duties, is of even more concern based on the nexus of CIA mind-bending activities around his family in Hawaii, all of whom are linked to CIA activities from Indonesia and Kenya to Pakistan and the Philippines....

Stanley Dunham's CIA shell company in Hawaii: a furniture store....
WMR has learned from a reliable source that Stanley Dunham, Barack Obama's grandfather, did not work as a manager at a furniture store in Honolulu after moving there from Seattle but had non-official CIA cover status with the "furniture store," which was actually a CIA shell company cover.
Dunham officially worked as a manager for Pratt furniture store in Honolulu seeking a better furniture store opportunity after working at Doces Majestic Furniture Company and Standard-Grunbaum Furniture store in Seattle. Previously, Dunham had worked at J.G. Paris furniture store in Ponca City, Oklahoma.
However, there are no records that Pratt Furniture was an actual legitimate retail outlet in Honolulu. Dunham's wife, Madelyn Dunham, who Barack Obama called "Toot," handled escrow accounts for CIA operations at the Bank of Hawaii in Honolulu while Stanley Dunham was involved in the CIA's Airlift Africa project that saw Barack Obama, Sr. brought to the University of Hawaii and the CIA-linked East-West Center to be "sheep dipped" by the CIA into future service. Mr. Dunham welcomed Barack Obama, Sr. on his arrival at Honolulu International Airport in 1960.
On August 19, 2010, WMR reported: "What is officially known about Stanley Armour Dunham is that he served with the 9th Air Force in Britain and France prior to and after the D-Day invasion. After the war, Dunham and his wife, Madelyn and his daughter Stanley Ann -- Obama's mother -- moved to Berkeley, California; El Dorado, Kansas; Seattle; and Honolulu. Armour Dunham is said to have worked for a series of furniture stores."
There is a "Pratt's" in Kailua Kona on the island of Hawaii that sells furniture and kitchenware but the store listed as Dunham's employer is "Pratt Furniture Company" in Honolulu. There is a Pratt Furniture store in Pratt, Kansas. Dunham lived in Wichita, Kansas before shipping out to Europe in World War II. Barack Obama's mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, was born in Wichita in 1942. Madelyn Dunham worked at a Boeing B-29 plant in Wichita while her husband was in Europe. Pratt Furniture in Pratt, Kansas is not a chain and did not have a branch in Honolulu. However, Pratt lies about 75 miles due west of Wichita on U.S. Highway 54.
The CIA has a history of using retail store front operations as cover. The CIA and National Security Agency once operated a super-secret Special Collection Service (SCS) facility out of a strip mall in College Park, Maryland. The two spy agencies operated in the back of a restaurant and dry-cleaning store. The stores operated as legitimate retail operations with the secret operations being carried out in the back rooms. For many years a furniture store in Arlington, Virginia has operated with the popular suspicion that it, too, is a front operation for the CIA.
WMR also previously reported: "The photograph of Armour Dunham with Barack Obama, Sr., indicates that the 'furniture salesman' in Hawaii was, in fact, working with a CIA-funded project to rapidly educate aspiring politicians to serve in post-independence African governments to counter Soviet- and Chinese-backed political leaders in the region. There is a strong reason to believe that Armour Dunham worked in the 1950s for the CIA in the Middle East. An FBI file on Armour Dunham existed but the bureau claimed it destroyed the file on May 1, 1997. Considering the sour relations between the FBI and CIA during the Cold War, it is likely that Armour Dunham was being monitored by FBI director J. Edgar Hoover in the same manner as a number of other CIA officials and agents were being surveilled. Similarly, the pre-1968 passport records of Obama's mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, were destroyed by the State Department."
There is another possible reason for the FBI to have maintained a file on Dunham. In the years in which "Ozzie and Harriett" and the "Cleavers" represented the typical American family on television, Ann Dunham's marriage to a black African when she was 17 may have resulted in a report being filed by the FBI from Honolulu. Although Hawaii was much more tolerant of mixed race marriages in the early 1960s then the mainland, Hoover frowned on such marriages, especially involving the daughter of a CIA operative who was attending Russian-language class at the University of Hawaii and where she allegedly first met her first husband, Barack Obama, Sr. Mr. Dunham's FBI file may have grown a bit larger after his daughter moved with Barack Obama. Jr. to Jakarta and where young Barry Soetoro was raised by a transsexual nanny named "Turdi."
Hoover, himself a homosexual, was keen on identifying and keeping files on any other homosexuals connected in any way to the government, especially the CIA, with which he had a fractured and testy relationship. Turdi tended to Barry by day and frolicked at night with a dance group called the "Fantastic Dolls." Obama lived with his step-father, Lolo Soetoro, and mother in the Menteng-Dalam district of Jakarta from 1967 to 1971. There is a strong reason to believe that Obama's mother sent her son back to live with her parents in Honolulu because of a physically-abusive behavior by Obama's step-father.
From WMR's August 19 report: "Obama maintains that his mother and father first met in a Russian-language class at the University of Hawaii in 1960. However, a photograph has emerged of Stanley Armour welcoming Barack Obama, Sr., complete with traditional Hawaiian welcoming leis, from Kenya. Obama, Sr. was the only Kenyan student airlifted to Hawaii as part of the CIA-inspired Airlift Africa project that saw Obama and 279 other students from British eastern and southern African colonies brought to the United States for college degrees prior to their homelands gaining independence from Britain. The students were selected by Kenyan nationalist leader Tom Mboya who would later conduct surveillance for the CIA at pan-African nationalist meetings."
Stanley Dunham (third from right) welcomes Barack Obama, Sr. (fourth from right) to Honolulu.
WMR has learned that unlike the 2008 campaign, a wealth of negative information on Obama's past will soon surface that will dissuade him from seeking another term. In the re-trial of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, scheduled to begin on April 20, 2011, new information on Obama's relationship with jailed political campaign funder and businessman Tony Rezko will reportedly be made available. Meanwhile, a team of ex-CIA agents continues to scour through files around the world in search of documents on Obama and his family....
WMR has uncovered CIA-archival documents that point to a link between Barack Obama's post-Columbia University CIA front employer, Business International Corporation (BIC), and his mother's two employers, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Asian Development Bank. WMR has also discovered CIA files that point to the use of field anthropologists abroad, working under foundation cover, by the CIA. Obama's mother, Stanley Ann Dunham/Obama/Soetoro/Sutoro worked as a field anthropologist in Indonesia under the cover of the Ford Foundation.
BIC and the Ford Foundation maintained a close relationship through the BIC's running of the Business International Roundtable. Papers maintained at the John F. Kennedy Library provide a linkage between David E. Bell, the Director of the Bureau of the Budget from 1961 to 1962 and administrator of the USAID from 1963 to 1966, and the Ford Foundation, where Bell served as executive vice president from 1966 to 1981, and Business International, where Bell participated in one of their Business International Roundtables on December 17, 1965, at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington. The Joseph P. Kennedy, Sr. Foundation helped fund the CIA's Airlift Africa project that saw it used to bring Barack H. Obama, Sr. to the University of Hawaii in 1960, as well as over two hundred other African students to other American universities, as part of the CIA's program to counter the Soviet Union's efforts to provide scholarships to African college students in newly-independent African nations at the People's Friendship University in Moscow (later Patrice Lumumba University).
BIC also attempted to infiltrate members of Students for Democratic Society (SDS) at Columbia University in the 1960s by offering them money from Rockefeller family coffers. BIC, which ran Business International Roundtables, was cited in its attempts to infiltrate SDS and other leftist groups.
BIC, which helped propel Obama into international affairs and, later, a profession in politics, was a key to the co-option of leftist groups by Rockefeller and other corporate interests. The following video describes how BIC attempted to infiltrate SDS and other leftist groups beginning after 28 minutes.
In a book titled "The Strawberry Statement," James Kunen described Business International, as related by an unnamed 1968 SDS conference attendee, as leading an effort to finance SDS demonstrations in Chicago in the late 1960s. BIC is described in the book as "the left wing of the ruling class."
Obama was inserted into the south side of Chicago at the same time the CIA, FBI, and other U.S. intelligence agencies were focused on the foreign connections of the El Rukn gang, the Nation of Islam, and the Black Panthers. Obama's membership in a leftist organization at Occidental College in Los Angeles appears to have been a continuation of the infiltration efforts by BIC and its major funder, the CIA. WMR previously reported that Obama was a key asset to the penetration of radical black organizations in south Chicago in the mid-1980s. Of particular interest to the CIA after Obama's graduation from Columbia, was the connections of the El Rukns and Nation of Islam to the Muammar Qaddafi government in Libya, in addition to foreign connections of the Hispanic gang, the Latin Kings, also active in Chicago.
In 1986, BIC was sold to The Economist Group in London and merged with the Economist Intelligence Unit. [BIC had maintained "Business International UK Ltd.," which, according to an internal CIA memorandum, subscribed to all the CIA's unclassified publications]. However, the BIC International Roundtables appear to continue under various academic and foundation auspices, including at Obama's former guest law lecturing employer, the University of Chicago. In addition, the BIC International Roundtables appear to be a continuation of the Roundtables first organized by Africa's greatest colonialist plunderers, Cecil Rhodes. Rhodes's business roundtables of the wealthiest elites eventually morphed into the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). In fact, Obama, the first African-American president of the United States, is a direct product of BIC and its Roundtables, originally founded by Africa's most infamous looter and pillager of diamonds, gold, and other natural resources and promoter of white minority rule and colonialism, Rhodes.
On June 14, 1976, Senator John Durkin (D-NH) said there was little the Senate could do to reduce the ability of "the Business Roundtable or the Chamber of Commerce . . . to attempt to influence votes, either through sheer force of logic or sheer force." On June 19, 1975, Representative Wright Patman (D-TX) railed on the House floor that "in 1973 and 1974 -- when the previous audit bill was up -- the Federal Reserve and its Chairman entered into some highly questionable lobbying tactics, ending up with the involvement of the big banks and the big business combines including the fat cat Business Roundtable." Obama's current subservience to Wall Street and the Federal Reserve can be seen through the lens of his employment with BIC, a virtual mouthpiece for what Patman described as the "fat cats."
BIC was used by the State Department as a diversion for a delegation of General Accounting Office (GAO) representatives who visited Hong Kong in August 1974 looking for information on possibilities for U.S.-Chinese trade after Richard Nixon had opened China up to the United States. A formerly Confidential cable from the U.S. Consulate General in Hong Kong to the State Department, with copies to the U.S. Liaison Office in Peking and U.S. embassy in Tokyo, dated August 21, 1974, bragged about the consulate's success in diverting the GAO's interest from consulate files on "PRC economic affairs (general), foreign trade and trade promotion, (which includes our files on the Canton Trade Fair)" even though the GAO team told the consulate it was "not supposed to do that." The consulate's problem appeared to be that some of the files were classified. In order to stymie the GAO group, the consulate directed them to conversations with "companies, third country representatives (identified as UK, Canadian, Australian, and West German trade officials in Hong Kong), Far Eastern Economic Review, and Business International staffs." The GAO delegation was particularly interested in potential oil and mining deals with China.
It is apparent that the consulate and BIC wanted to keep what they knew about Chinese trade under wraps, even from Congress. A few weeks after the GAO team was in Hong Kong, a new head of the U.S. Liaison Office in Peking replaced Ambassador David Bruce. His name was George H. W. Bush.
BIC was also used by the State Department and CIA to keep tabs on U.S. firms on the Arab boycott blacklist for investing in or trading with Israel. A Congressional Record insertion in 1965 stated, "Business International reported in January 1964 that there were 164 U.S. firms on the Arab blacklist, adding that, "many American businessmen who have wanted to trade or invest in Israel have been deterred by Arab threats."
BIC also enjoyed a cozy relationship with USAID in 1982, the year before Barack Obama graduated from Columbia and joined BIC's staff in New York. Obama's mother had been a long time employee of USAID, an agency with historical and current links to the CIA.....
On June 8, 1962, in a hearing on "U.S. Policies and Programs in Southeast Asia" held by the Senate Subcommittee on East Asian and Pacific Affairs and chaired by Senator S. I. Hayakawa (R-CA), Elise R. W. DuPont, the Assistant Administrator for Private Enterprise for USAID, testified that her agency was "working with Business International to develop country specific information on laws, regulations, and policies in developing countries that affect investment." DuPont specifically stated that USAID was using the information from BIC to conduct "bureau reconnaissance missions" in Indonesia and Thailand and this included support for "a venture capital firm and a leasing firm in Indonesia." BIC, along with a CIA-connected firm called InterMatrix, also conducted country risk analyses for the CIA.
Obama's first employer acted as a bridge between the U.S. intelligence world, with USAID and other government fronts as cover, and the print media. On May 4, 1967, Acting Secretary of Commerce Alexander B. Trowbridge told the East-West Trade Conference at Bowling Green State University that U.S. trade missions to the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe were facilitated by "TIME, Inc. and Business International." Trowbridge said the use of "trade publications," such as those for whom Obama worked after graduating from Columbia, "stimulated" the exchange of information between East and West.
BIC's relationship with the U.S.governments sensitive trade channels with the East Bloc continued through 1979. A "Cuban Chronology," dated April 1979 and issued by the CIA's National Foreign Assessment Center, states that from November 20 to 25, 1977, BIC sponsored "meetings in Havana of representatives of 50 US firms and their contact points in the Cuban government." WMR has learned from a reliable source that Obama's grandfather, Stanley Dunham, had traveled to Cuba in 1960 on CIA business with Obama's mother, Ann Dunham.... It has also been strongly rumored by informed sources with connections to the Cuban government that Barack H. Obama, Sr. was not the father of Barack Obama, Jr. but that his actual father was an Afro-Cuban who Ann Dunham met during the 1960 trip with her father....
A formerly classified CIA "East Europe Branch Notes," report, dated February 4, 1974, states "A three-day roundtable conference between Business International and East German officials concerned with the promotion of trade opened in East Berlin on February 4. Orville Freeman, President of Business International, heads the foreign participants, comprising presidents, vice presidents, and board members of important US and West European enterprises. GDR Premier Sindermann told the group further steps toward detente have a favorable effect on the expansion of foreign economic activities. He also said that East Germany plans to expand substantially its economic relations with non-socialist cluntries. The remainder of the report from East Germany's roundtable with BIC is redacted.
BIC, along with the CIA, also participated in private conclaves sponsored by an entity called the "Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions," operating from Post Office Box 4068 in Santa Barbara, California and funded by a non-profit corporation called "The Fund for the Republic," which were held periodically on top of Eucalyptus Hill, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, in Santa Barbara. A fellow of the Center was Edward Engberg, the Managing Editor for Business International who was also a former assistant editor for Fortune magazine. Other center fellows and consultants included Associate Justice of the US Supreme Court William O. Douglas; former President of the University of California Clark Kerr; former President of the University of Chicago Robert M. Hutchins (also the President of the center); and Isidor Rabi, Professor of Physics at Columbia University; Stanley Sheinbaum, former consultant to the government of South Vietnam; John R. Seeley, Chairman of the Sociology Department at Brandeis University; and Harvey Wheeler, co-author of the book "Fail Safe."
CIA files contain a 1967 letter to the editor of the Daily Emerald from three anthropology professors at the University of Oregon supporting a decision of the American Anthropological Association (AAA) condemning the "intelligence meddling" of the CIA and Defense Department in anthropological field work. 1967 was the same year that Ann Dunham was performing such anthropological "field work" for USAID, a front for the CIA, in Java, Indonesia. The AAA's Professor Ralph Beals [from UCLA] report stated that the Pentagon and CIA "repeatedly interfered with anthropological work abroad, and have clearly jeopardized our chances, as anthropologists, to do meaningful foreign research."
And in what is the clearest evidence yet that Ann Dunham was working for the CIA in Indonesia and elsewhere, the Beals Report stated: "several anthropologists, especially younger ones who had difficulty in securing research funds, were approached by 'obscure' foundations or were offered support from such organizations only to discover later that they were expected to provide intelligence information to the CIA." The report added, "agents of the CIA have posed as anthropologists, much to the detriment of the anthropological research programs."
In Ann Dunham/Soetoro's case, her foundation "sugar daddy" was the Ford Foundation and USAID. Her boss at Ford was none other than Peter Geithner, the father of President Obama's current Treasury Secretary, Tim Geithner.....
President Obama's mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, worked in Indonesia for a U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) embassy cover operation that helped identify some 5000 key members of the Indonesian Communist Party -- Partai Komunis Indonesia(PKI) that were targeted for assassination by Indonesian armed forces units, of which her husband and President Obama's step-father, Lolo Soetoro, was a participant. The 5000 targets' names appeared in what was called by the CIA "the shooting list."
Furthermore, the contacts of the key 5000 PKI members was also used by the CIA, in part using USAID official cover agents like Ann Dunham, to identify Indonesian sympathizers with the government of President Sukarno, ousted in 1965 in a CIA-orchestrated coup, in which Lolo Soetoro took part, and the PKI, with the net total of Indonesians killed ranging from 250,000 to 1 million.
The CIA's role in the Indonesian genocide is found in a 1990 article written by Ralph McGehee, a CIA veteran of the agency's International Communism Branch of the Counterintelligence Staff. The article appeared in the Fall 1990 issue of the Covert Action Information Bulletin.
Lolo Soetoro was a colonel in the Indonesian armed forces and worked for the CIA-installed dictator, General Suharto, from 1965, after returning to Indonesian from Hawaii, where he married Ann Dunham, to 1970, when he joined Exxon. President Obama's mother arrived in Indonesia to join Soetoro with young Barack Obama, Jr. in October 1967,while the CIA's anti-PKI and anti-Sukarno "mopping up" operations were still taking place.
Dunham Soetoro began working for CIA/USAID front, Lembaga Persahabatan Indonesia Amerika (LIA)–the Indonesia-America Friendship Institute. In 1972, Dunham Soetoro returned to Hawaii to continue her CIA work in Indonesia under the non-official cover of two agency fronts, the Asia Foundation and the East-West Center at the University of Hawaii. Dunham Soetoro returned to Indonesia in 1975 to conduct "anthropological field work." The year 1975 is key since it was the year East Timor gained independence from Portugal and when the CIA, working with Suharto, planned the Indonesian invasion and bloody occupation of East Timor, a move that had been given the green light by then-Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. Kissinger now serves as a foreign policy adviser to President Obama.
On December 7, 2010, we reported on the details of Dunham Soetoro's "anthropological field work": CIA files contain a 1967 letter to the editor of the Daily Emerald from three anthropology professors at the University of Oregon supporting a decision of the American Anthropological Association (AAA) condemning the "intelligence meddling" of the CIA and Defense Department in anthropological field work. 1967 was the same year that Ann Dunham was performing such anthropological "field work" for USAID, a front for the CIA, in Java, Indonesia. The AAA's Professor Ralph Beals [from UCLA] report stated that the Pentagon and CIA "repeatedly interfered with anthropological work abroad, and have clearly jeopardized our chances, as anthropologists, to do meaningful foreign research."
And in what is the clearest evidence yet that Ann Dunham was working for the CIA in Indonesia and elsewhere, the Beals Report stated: "several anthropologists, especially younger ones who had difficulty in securing research funds, were approached by 'obscure' foundations or were offered support from such organizations only to discover later that they were expected to provide intelligence information to the CIA." The report added, "agents of the CIA have posed as anthropologists, much to the detriment of the anthropological research programs."
In Ann Dunham/Soetoro's case, her foundation "sugar daddy" was the Ford Foundation and USAID. Her boss at Ford was none other than Peter Geithner, the father of President Obama's current Treasury Secretary, Tim Geithner.
The Ford Foundation, on behalf of the CIA, began currying favor with top Indonesian military officers as early as 1954. Ford's chief liaison to the officers, as well as to members of the Indonesian Socialist Party, was Ford researcher Guy Parker. The CIA's involvement with village politics in Indonesia, began when the Ford Foundation started the Modern Indonesia Project, a CIA cover program during the Sukarno regime that was run out of Cornell University, University of California at Berkeley, and MIT, an academic cover operation into which Dunham Soetoro was later placed. Ford Foundation-funded scholarships were used to provide education to a number of Indonesian military officers and economists who would become leaders in Suharto's government.
After Suharto's "New Order" government came to power, key Indonesian assets of the CIA were placed into top positions in Indonesia's mining, oil, and timber industries. One was Lolo Soetoro who went to work for Exxon.
Dunham Soetoro's USAID/CIA cover in Indonesia's Java continued from 1975 to the end of 1980 continued through the auspices of various employers, including BAPPENAS (Badan Perencanaan Pembangunan Nasional) -- the Indonesian National Development Planning Agency, the UN's International Labor Organization, the Ministry of Industry Provincial Development Program (PDP I), and most significantly, the notorious USAID/CIA cover company, Development Alternatives, Inc. (DAI) of Bethesda, Maryland.
The Obama administration is currently demanding that Cuba release Alan P. Gross, a DAI employee charged with espionage under the cover of providing telecommunication support for the Cuban Jewish community. Leaders of Cuba's Jewish community have stated they are not familiar with Gross. DAI has also been involved in funneling National Endowment for Democracy (NED) funds on behalf of the CIA to the Venezuelan opposition to President Hugo Chavez and covert funding for Iraqi groups during the U.S. Coalition Provisional Authority regime of U.S. viceroy for Iraq Paul "Jerry" Bremer, a Henry Kissinger understudy.
Like Business International Corporation (BIC), the company that employed Barack Obama after his graduation from Columbia University in 1983, DAI, which employed Obama's mother from 1978 to 1980, has been a long-time CIA front. Dunham Soetoro worked for DAI during the time period that Barack Obama was attending a favorite CIA recruitment college, Occidental College of Los Angeles. While Barack Obama was at Columbia and CIA front BIC, his mother was under non-official CIA cover from 1981 to 1984 in Jakarta as the program officer for women and employment for the Ford Foundation's Southeast Asia regional office, a job that took Dunham Soetoro to other nations in the region, including the Philippines, Thailand, and Malaysia. Dunham Soetoro's cover story was a Ford Foundation micro-financing project.
Fluent Russian speaker, Robert J. Martens was a member of the political section [CIA station] of the U.S. embassy in Jakarta from 1963 and in the years leading up to the Suharto coup. Masters was number three in the embassy's chain-of-command. In the years during which the Indonesian communists and their sympathizer were tracked down and murdered, Martens would have been within Dunham Soetoro's USAID CIA cover chain-of-command after she arrived in Jakarta in 1967 for the CIA's mopping up operations in the Indonesian rural villages. Martens, who previously served in Naples, Vienna, Salzburg, Oberammergau, and Moscow, before being posted to Jakarta, was considered one of the CIA's top operatives in Jakarta and he helped craft the CIA's "shooting list." Others in Dunham Soetoro's CIA chain in Jakarta were CIA station chief Bernardo Hugh Tovar, CIA deputy station chief Joseph Lazarsky and Jakarta embassy political section chief Edward Masters. Tovar, a native of Colombia, had been assigned previously to the CIA stations in Kuala Lumpur and Manila.
Masters, who was fluent in Hindi, had been posted in Frankfurt, Karachi, and Madras before being assigned to Jakarta to help plan the CIA coup against Sukarno. Dunham Soetoro was assigned to Java villages to conduct "anthropological" research since the CIA had identified Indonesian village cadres, including members of the Gerwani women's organization and SOBSI labor federation, as primary supporters of the PKI and Sukarno.
With his CIA connections, Lolo Soetoro's dual chain-of-command, in addition to his reporting to Suharto and his top men, would have also included the U.S. embassy's defense attaché, U.S. Army Colonel Willis G. Ethel. Colonel Ethel worked closely with Indonesian intelligence chief Ali Murtopo.
The CIA officials in Indonesia reported to William Colby, the director of the CIA's Far East Division. Colby was the brains behind another CIA assassination program, the Phoenix Program in South Vietnam.
From 1989 to 1990, reporter Kathy Kadane conducted a series of interviews with former CIA personnel who were involved in the 1965 coup and the subsequent mass killings of Communists. Martens revealed the role of the CIA "shooting list" for Suharto's army, in which Lolo Soetoro served, in the systematic assassination of PKI members: "It was really a big help to the army . . . they probably killed a lot of people. and I probably have a lot of blood on my hands, but that's not all bad. There's a time when you have to strike hard at a decisive moment." Asked whether the CIA sent Martens to Indonesia in 1963 to compile kill lists, Colby responded, "Maybe. I don't know. Maybe we did. I've forgotten."
In order to communicate the names of suspected Communists from outlying villages like those where Dunham Soetoro worked, the CIA provided Indonesian military officers and CIA agents with Collins KWM-2 radios, requisitioned from U.S. Air Force stocks at Clark Air Force Base in the Philippines and flown to Jakarta on U.S. Air Force C-130 transport planes. National Security Agency intercept stations in Southeast Asia also picked up the radio transmissions from the Indonesian army field officers and CIA overseers like Dunham Soetoro to ensure that all suspected PKI members were identified for elimination by matching the "field" human intelligence with other NSA information compiled from intercepts of Indonesian commercial and government communications, i.e., signals intelligence or "SIGINT."
Others at the embassy who directed CIA operations against the PKI included U.S. ambassador Marshall Green and deputy chief of mission Jack Lydman. Green dropped dead from a heart attack on a Washington, DC golf course in 1998. He worked for Nixon national security adviser Kissinger after leaving Indonesia in 1969. Lydman later was involved in the State Department's review of Indonesian military operations in West New Guinea in 1969, after the Indonesian annexation of the former Dutch territory. Colonel Lolo Soetoro was involved in the bloody Indonesian army crackdown on West Papuan secessionists in the territory.
On March 11, 1966, while Lolo Soetoro continued to assist Suharto in the identification and rounding up of PKI members for execution, the U.S. embassy in Jakarta sent a airgram A-654 to Washington. The airgram was drafted by Martens and signed by Masters. The airgram stated it was necessary to compile a new list of PKI members because information on PKI officials "remains extremely fragmentary but sufficient additional information has been received to make a new compilation advisable." The airgram contained a list of 80 PKI leaders and their status.
The Indonesian army's and CIA's kill list would not end with the elimination of PKI members and their sympathizers. Kill lists would play out in West Papua, East Timor, and Aceh province during the time of Obama's "Mommy Dearest's" bloody work in Indonesia on behalf of her bosses at the CIA, USAID, and Ford Foundation.
The problem for Barack Obama is not shouldering blame for sins of his mother and step-father but the fact that he has lied completely about their history. In his book, "The Audacity of Hope," Obama writes about his mother's first trip to Indonesia in 1967: "In later years my mother would insist that had she known what had transpired in the preceding months, we never would have made the trip. But she didn't know -- the full story of the coup and the purge was slow to appear in American newspapers. Indonesians didn't talk about it either." If they were truly Ann Dunham Soetoro's words, we can be certain of one thing: she trained her son to lie just as well as she did.....
A third world leader who had challenged the hegemony of the United States was accused of trying to obtain an atomic bomb and helping to create an "axis" of America's enemies. We are not referring to either Saddam Hussein or Mahmoud Ahmadinejad but to President Sukarno of Indonesia.
U.S. support for the Indonesian coup and Project CAMELOT...
President Obama's step-father, Lolo Soetoro, a reserve Indonesian army officer called back into service in the army in 1965 from his CIA-supplied scholarship at the East-West Center at the University of Hawaii, was a foot soldier in the putschist cabal of General Suharto, the man who the CIA designated as the leader of the 1965 coup that deposed Sukarno and targeted between 500,000 and 1 million members of the Indonesian Communist Party (PKI) for elimination. Lolo Soetoro was one of some 4000 Indonesian army officers who were trained in the United States between 1958 and 1965 and the CIA and Pentagon ensured that these officers would be available for the long-planned overthrow of Sukarno. In fact, an overwhelming majority of Indonesian army officers who were trained abroad received their training in the United States, not in the Soviet Union or China. The air force, on the other hand, was seen as pro-PKI and PKI influence extended into the junior officer ranks of the Indonesian navy, particularly in Surabaya, eastern Java.
The Indonesian army also included some PKI sympathizers, especially in units in central and eastern Java, which were also areas of interest to Ann Soetoro in her "anthropological field work" for the U.S. government. In addition, the police force in central and eastern Java were also sympathetic to the PKI.
Obama's mother, Ann Soetoro, was dispatched from Hawaii to Indonesia in 1967, along with seven year-old Barack Obama, to infiltrate villages in Java to carry out a CIA survey of political leanings among the Javanese population. Those unfortunate enough to be tagged as Communists or Sukarno supporters were then targeted for elimination by the CIA, which turned the target lists over to Suharto's army officers, including Lolo Soetoro. During the Cold War, the use of anthropologists by the CIA and Defense Department in the collection of ethnographic and cultural intelligence was commonplace, with modern roots in a classified U.S. intelligence program created in 1964, three years before Dunham Soetoro arrived in Indonesia, called Project CAMELOT. The first testing ground for CAMELOT was Chile and the target was that nation's indigenous population, including the Mapuche Indians.
The use of anthropologists like Dunham Soetoro was supported through grants laundered by the Ford, Rockefeller, and Carnegie Foundations. Many of Dunham Soetoro's activities in Java were funded by the Ford Foundation.
CAMELOT was officially described as follows by the U.S. Army: "Success in such tasks as equipping and training indigenous forces for an internal security mission, civic action, psychological warfare, or other counterinsurgency action depends on a thorough understanding of the indigenous social structure, upon the accuracy with which changes within the indigenous culture, particularly violent changes, are anticipated, and the effects of various courses of action, such as targeted assassinations, available to the military and other agencies of government upon the indigenous process of change...."
CAMELOT's work was conducted at American University in Washington, DC by the Pentagon's Special Operations Research Office (SORO). SORO ran the Army's psychological warfare operations. In addition to CAMELOT "research" in Chile, SORO anthropological research also targeted the indigenous peoples of Colombia and Peru.
CAMELOT still exists under a new name and Obama supports it, and supports the Infamous White House Murder INC, with Asef Shawkat since January 24th 2002 in Beirut....with STL crap...
Today, a number of elements in CAMELOT are integral to the much-discredited "Human Terrain System" (HTS) operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. As with CAMELOT and other covert operations involving anthropologists, HTS has been charged with exacerbating tensions between various indigenous groups and tribes to create intelligence opportunities for the U.S. military. The targeting of village leaders, a replay, of the CIA's PHOENIX assassination program in South Vietnam, part of CIA Southeast Asia regional chief William Colby's Civil Operations and Revolutionary Development Support (CORDS) program, has also been a charge leveled against those involved with HTS. President Obama has done nothing to curtail HTS funding, although there have been some moves by some in Congress to do so.
Obama continues to fund the follow-on to CAMELOT, PHOENIX, CORDS, and MODJOKUTO, all CIA/Pentagon operations familiar to his mother and her colleagues, the Human Terrain System, which has been responsible for massacres of civilians in Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, Somalia, Yemen and Pakistan.
Members of the American Anthropological Association (AAA) have, like they did with CAMELOT and PHOENIX, have condemned HTS for its reliance on what the AAA has described as “mercenary anthropology." A survey of literature during the late 1960s and 70s indicate that Dunham Soetoro and many of her colleagues engaged in U.S. government- and Ford Foundation-financed anthropological field work in Indonesia met the definition of "mercenary anthropologists." Central and eastern Java were known as hotbeds of what was termed "rural radicalism," and, thus, were of extreme interest to CAMELOT and the CIA behavioral science and ethnographic elements... Other CIA-funded anthropologists fanned out after the 1965 coup to other areas of Indonesia known to be areas of strong PKI support, including Aceh in northwestern Sumatra and Bali. The massacres of actual and suspected PKI members was so great that sanitation in Java, Bali, and Aceh became an issue as a result from the rotting of human corpses. It was into this environment that Ann Soetoro brought seven year-old Barack Obama in 1967, yet Obama barely mentions these "years of living dangerously" in his autobiographical sketches about his mother's and step father's activities in Indonesia. There is only a brief mention of Lolo Soetoro's counter-insurgency operations in Indonesian occupied West Papua, which, like East Timor and Aceh, would attract the interests of a fair number of CIA-funded anthropologists in counter-insurgency -- and even genocidal campaigns in the case of East Timor -- into the 1970s, 80s, 90s, and to the present day.
At its height, the PKI was estimated to have some 20 million members, with its main areas of support in central and eastern Java, particular areas of focus after the Suharto coup for Ann Soetoro and her US Agency for International Development (USAID) and CIA official and non-official cover embassy and consulate colleagues in Jakarta and Surabaya. One of Dunham Soetoro's colleagues in Indonesia was Ford Foundation consultant Clifford Geertz who became known later as an eminent scholar on cultural anthropology in Indonesia and Morocco.
In a poem written by intelligence expert Professor Peter Dale Scott about the Indonesian massacre Geertz is mentioned in a cryptic passage:
Geertz, who was heavily funded by the Ford Foundation, happened to have arrived in Indonesia the day before the coup against Sukarno. Geertz immediately went to Yogyakarta, the PKI hot-bed that would later also see Dunham Soetoro conducting "field research."
The use of cultural anthropologists for CIA work created a furor in the 1960s, especially with their use in South Vietnam and Thailand in support of the war effort. However, one of the most noted anthropologists in the world at the time, Margaret Mead, renowned for her seminal work in 1928, "Coming of Age in Samoa," and her controversial views on the sexual mores' of the 1960s, defended the CIA's use of anthropologists in field work. In a 1971 report, called the Mead Report, Mead rebutted the Beals Report and stated that the use of anthropologists in counter-insurgency "research" met the "traditional canons of acceptable behavior" for anthropologists.
Mead found herself in opposition to senior anthropologists of the AAA who were opposed to the CIA's use of anthropologists in covert operations and counter-insurgency programs. In 1966, Professor Ralph Beals of UCLA presented a report commissioned by the AAA on the subject of CIA co-option of anthropologists. The Beals Report stated: "several anthropologists, especially younger ones who had difficulty in securing research funds, were approached by ‘obscure’ foundations or were offered support from such organizations only to discover later that they were expected to provide intelligence information to the CIA." The report added, "agents of the CIA have posed as anthropologists, much to the detriment of the anthropological research programs."
Note: We are attempting to obtain a copy of the full Beals Report, which was officially adopted by the AAA's Council of Fellows in 1967, the year Dunham Soetoro arrived in Indonesia. Professor Beals died in 1985.
Geertz worked with the Center for International Studies (CENIS) at MIT on projects funded by the CIA and Ford Foundation. One was Project MODJOKUTO in Indonesia. In fact, in his book, "The Bridge: The Life and Rise of Barack Obama," David Remnick cites Geertz as one of Dunham Soetoro's Indonesian colleagues. Geertz, a specialist in the post-war Javanese economy, believed in modernization of tribal and rural societies and was not sold on Dunham Soetoro's quaint ideas of promoting the interests and development of Indonesian village craftsmen and weavers.
CENIS's anthropological work on behalf of the CIA was the brainchild of Max Millikan, CENIS's first director, and Walt W. Rostow who, in 1954, convinced CIA director Allen Dulles of the need for CIA involvement in development projects abroad. Rostow later became deputy national security adviser in the Lyndon Johnson White House. Rostow worked for McGeorge Bundy, who, after leaving the White House in 1966, became President of the Ford Foundation, the main source of the laundered CIA funding for Geertz's and Dunham Soetoro's field work in Indonesia.
Many of the pre-1977 CIA files on its interactions with the American Anthropological Association have either been heavily redacted or destroyed. Many of the MK-ULTRA documents on CIA behavioral science work in the United States and abroad were ordered destroyed in 1973 by CIA director Colby, shortly after he took over at Langley. Some of the CIA's anthropological studies were directed domestically a the Black Panther Party, which also gained the attention of Barack Obama, Jr. in the mid-1980s, while he was allegedly involved in "community organizing" in south Chicago, a Black Panther base of operations, after leaving a high-paying job as a "journalist" for CIA front Business International Corporation in Manhattan.
Three anthropologists serving with Human Terrain Teams in Afghanistan have been killed since the inception of the program or what could be termed the resurrection of CAMELOT and PHOENIX. Dunham Soetoro and her colleagues were much luckier in Java and on other Indonesian islands following the 1965 military coup. For one thing, the CIA had already infiltrated and sponsored a number of Indonesian groups prior to the coup against Sukarno, providing a ready-made network of informants for Ann Soetoro and her anthropology colleagues. Groups sponsored by the CIA included the Central Organization of Indonesian Socialist Employees (SOKSI), student organizations, and others.
Ann Dunham Soetoro: A Jewish female "Indiana Jones" surveying villagers to root out Communists for the CIA.... She was not the only anthropologist involved in such activities....
As with the reasons why the United States went to war in Afghanistan, Iraq and Lebanon in 2006... which were based on false premises, the covert U.S. incursion into Indonesia in 1965 was also based on fraudulent "new stories" and outright lies crafted by the CIA and Pentagon....and a whole bunch of extra-judicial assassinations in the Levant, carried out by the Infamous White House Murder INC, with Asef Shawkat since January 24th 2002 in Beirut....
The CIA propaganda war against Sukarno
In September 1964, Sukarno accused leaders of the Murba Party, a "nationalist" Communist Party with ties to Moscow, as opposed to the pro-Chinese PKI, of attempting to launch a palace coup backed by the CIA. The Murba Party masked its true intentions by launching a new group, the "Body to Promote Sukarnoism" (BPS), however Sukarno saw it as a ruse to further the ambitions of Washington and Moscow and he banned the BPS. Ann Soetoro's knowledge of Russian, which she took, along with Barack Obama, Sr., at the University of Hawaii in 1960, would come in handy in her contacts with Murba officials, including Murba secretary general Adam Malik, who had been Indonesia's ambassador in Moscow in 1959. In January 1965, Sukarno banned Murba, which, after the coup later that year, became legal again under Suharto. Malik, who may have also acted as an agent of the CIA while in Moscow and as Indonesian Trade Minister in 1963, became Indonesian foreign minister and deputy prime minister under Suharto in 1966.
The western media began a full propaganda effort against Sukarno in late 1964. On October 16, China tested its first atomic bomb. In November, Chinese Foreign Minister Chen Yi visited Jakarta and almost immediately, there were bogus reports put out by the CIA in the Asian and western press that China was prepared to give nuclear weapons technology to Indonesia. There were also Western media reports that Sukarno was planning to set up an anti-western "axis" of Indonesia, Cambodia, North Korea, North Vietnam, and mainland China. Only Cambodia was a member of the United Nations. The similarities between this so-called "axis" and the "axis of evil" of Iraq, Iran, and North Korea promoted by the neo-conservatives before the U.S. invasion of Iraq are stark.
The CIA's propaganda efforts even extended to Indonesian seers and mystics, who began to predict Sukarno's imminent downfall or death.
The stage was being set for a coup against Sukarno. In January 1965, Indonesia withdrew from the United Nations because its arch-enemy, Malaysia, was given a seat on the UN Security Council. There were also reports that Chinese Prime Minister Chou En-lai had promised to provide weapons to PKI cadres to provide Sukarno with his own armed militia against the suspect Indonesian army. The bogus story about the secret supply of Chinese weapons to the PKI for a communist revolt first appeared in a Malaysian newspaper, citing unnamed sources in Bangkok, who heard the story from Hong Kong sources who picked up the information from contacts in mainland China. Even by today's shoddy journalism standards of Fox News and CNN, the story lacked any credulity.
A mysterious letter surfaced in Indonesia in July 1965, purportedly written by British ambassador in Jakarta Andrew Gilchrist to the British Foreign Office in London, that referred to "our local army friends." Gilchrist was a British intelligence agent in India and Thailand during World War II. Gilchrist, in the months leading up to the coup, told London that regime change in Jakarta would entail "more than a little shooting." Before being posted to Jakarta, Gilchrist was British Consul General in Chicago. The University of Chicago's "New Nations Project, a suspected CIA-linked research project that examined nationalist movements around the world during the 1960s, involved none other than Dunham Soetoro's colleague in Indonesia, Clifford Geertz.
In March 1965, Sukarno infuriated the West by taking over the operations of western oil companies, including Shell, Caltex, and Stanvac, which was owned by Mobil. In 1970, after leaving the army, Lolo Soetoro went to work for Mobil, which was assured of no interference from the pro-U.S. Suharto government.
In April 1965, Sukarno expelled the Peace Corps from Indonesia as he grew more and more suspicious of American covert activities in his country. The next month, Sukarno accused the United States and Britain of planning a coup against him with the aid of the Indonesian army. Army forces began to call back Indonesian army reserve officers who were studying abroad in order to supplement their ranks for the planned coup against Sukarno. On July 20, 1965, Lolo Soetoro, who had been in the United States receiving CIA- and Pentagon-funded training since September 18, 1962, left Hawaii for Indonesia. He had married Ann Dunham on March 15, 1965. Ann Soetoro received her U.S. passport on July 19, 1965, the day before Lolo Soetoro left for Indonesia and just as events were heating up in Indonesia.
Suspiciously, Lolo Soetoro's Wikipedia entry has been altered to reflect his departure from Hawaii to Indonesia in 1966, the year following the coup. It appears that certain interests want to cover up Lolo Soetoro's involvement in the 1965 CIA coup.
In August, Sukarno committed the arch sin as viewed by the West and quasi-CIA support organizations like the Ford Foundation. Sukarno withdrew Indonesia from the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and INTERPOL. In August, while receiving a foreign delegation, Sukarno began to vomit uncontrollably and he collapsed. This was during the height of the CIA's assassination program led by the "Black Sorcerer," Dr. Sidney Gottlieb, the head of MK-ULTRA, who had previously attempted the poisonings of Fidel Castro, Iraqi leader Abdul Karim Qassem, and Congo's Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba.
False flag assassinations blamed on the Communists
On September 30, 1965, what unfolded in Indonesia may have been a classic CIA disinformation and "false flag" operation. Low-ranking army officers, said to be part of an attempted PKI takeover and calling themselves the "30 September Movement," attempted to kidnap seven anti-PKI army generals, however, oddly, General Suharto, the CIA's point man for the coup, was not among the kidnapping targets. Generals Yani, Haryono, and Panjaitan were killed at their homes "while resisting arrest," while Generals Soeprapto, Parman, and Sutoyo were taken alive and shot later by the coup plotters. The bodies of all seven generals were dumped into a well.
The Minister of Defense and Security, General Nasution, managed to escape alive from his home and received asylum at the Iraqi embassy, although his five year-old daughter was killed in the attack. The coup was launched from the Halim airbase outside Jakarta. However, for a coup attempt blamed on the PKI, which was used to launch a bloody massacre of PKI members and their sympathizers and force Sukarno from power, it was amazing that most of the PKI leadership were not in Jakarta and were not in contact with the low-ranking coup leaders. Aidit, one of the PKI Politburo members, was present at the Halim base but Politburo members Njoto, Lukman, Subandrio, Chaerul Saleh and Sastroamidjojo were not in Jakarta. There is no conclusive evidence that the PKI staged the murders of the seven generals but there is ample evidence that given the CIA's and MI-6's pre-coup operations, that it was they and Suharto that staged the massacre to provide a reason to oust Sukarno and begin the systematic massacres of PKI members.
It was also odd that given General Yani's soft approach to the PKI, that he was marked for assassination by alleged PKI cadres. However, General Nasution, who was known to be extremely anti-Communist and who was counted in the pro-U.S. camp, was able to escape assassination and hide out in the Iraqi embassy. Although Nasution swore Suharto in as the new president after the formal ousting of Sukarno, Nasution later broke with Suharto.
Why Indonesia 1965 matters for America 2011
Obama's advent to the White House was hailed as a first for the United States, someone had been elected as the "leader of the Free World" who had a multi-cultural background and a unique international understanding, as opposed to the pedestrian criminal nature of George W. Bush. As Obama's policies have become more clear, it is now a distinct possibility that Obama's "international understanding" has been influenced not so much by America's founders' principles but by the "strong man" characteristics of Asian personages such as Suharto, Adam Malik, and Obama's step-father Lolo Soetoro. And for that, all Americans should be fearful....
Obama's mother began her Indonesian field work at height of complaints about CIA involvement with foreign "research"
In a continuation of our investigation of the CIA backgrounds of President Obama and his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham Obama Soetoro, we have obtained a copy of an important report written by University of California-Los Angeles anthropology professor Dr. Ralph Beals for the Officers and Executive Board of the American Anthropological Association (AAA) and delivered to the annual meeting of the AAA on November 17, 1966 in Pittsburgh.
Beals' significant report remains relatively obscure to those outside the field of applied anthropology but what it detailed is a critical indictment of the CIA and Defense Department in co-opting young and inexperienced field anthropologists like Dunham Soetoro to conduct "data mining" for CIA and Pentagon covert "counter-insurgency" operations. Dunham Soetoro's receipt of funding from the Ford Foundation is a troubling aspect of President Obama's upbringing. Far from being raised by a leftist "flower child" of the 1960s who for a time reportedly lived on food stamps, young Barack Obama was raised in a family that was never without need or want but benefited from a CIA-funded regime that permitted anthropologists like Dunham Soetoro to collect large tax-free salaries abroad while conducting dubious research for the CIA via foundation-laundered funding....
In its investigation of U.S. intelligence activities in the 1960s and 70s, the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence chaired by Senator Frank Church (D-ID) discovered that one-third of all the hard and social sciences grants awarded by the "Big Three" foundations - Ford, Rockefeller, and Carnegie - involved CIA money. In some cases, the CIA-funded "research" was later used for the CIA's torture, counter-insurgency, "termination with extreme prejudice," and surveillance of targets abroad and within the United States....
With a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology from the University of Hawaii under her belt, Dunham Soetoro moved with her seven-year old son to Jakarta to be with her husband , Indonesian Army Colonel Lolo Soetoro - a hit man for the CIA-installed Suharto regime -- to ply her intelligence agency apprenticeship in mapping the political and social allegiances of the people of the island of Java, a longtime island of opportunity for CIA machinations....
Dunham Soetoro's work in Indonesia for USAID and Ford followed by two years President Lyndon Johnson's dictate to Secretary of State Dean Rusk: "I am determined that no Government sponsorship of foreign area research should be undertaken which in the judgment of the Secretary of State would adversely affect United States foreign relations." According to the Beals Report, this presidential directive placed the government in a commanding role in deciding who and what projects, including foreign anthropology research, would be funded. For good measure, to ensure that such research had a military or intelligence predicate, Rusk assigned oversight for foreign area research to Thomas L. Hughes, the Director of Intelligence and Research for the State Department...
As Dr. David Price, a pre-eminent expert in the use of anthropologists by the CIA and Pentagon in clandestine operations wrote in a 2009 article in Critique of Anthropology titled, " Subtle Means and Enticing Carrots: The Impact of Funding on Cold War Anthropology ," the Ford Foundation, State Department, and CIA were "involved in intricate covert political interventions in Indonesia. One of the top witting or unwitting U.S. assets in Java was Dr. Clifford Geertz , a pioneer in the anthropological surveys of Java for the CIA and would have most certainly have known Dunham Soetoro in Java or may have even been her de facto "control officer..."
Geertz had an unusual interest in the Balinese blood sport of cockfighting. Price cites Professor Nancy Scheper-Hughes, director of the Medical Anthropology program at the University of California-Berkeley and whose investigation of an Israeli-based ring of human organ traffickers led to a number of arrests by the FBI of a number of perpetrators. [It is interesting to note that in her investigation of the Israeli organ theft operation, which targeted unsuspecting poor people in developing countries, Scheper-Hughes discovered that one of the motivating factors for the Israeli theft of organs from non-Jews was, as she stated in a 2008 lecture, "revenge, restitution, reparation for the Holocaust - the attitude being "'we're gong to get every single kidney and liver and heart that we can. The world owes it to us..."]
In the Indonesia context, Scheper-Hughes wrote of Geertz:
"Clifford Geertz's celebrated Balinese "cockfight" scenario was developed within the larger context of a national political emergency that resulted in the massacre of almost three-quarters of a million Indonesians, though it took Geertz three decades to mention the killings that had engulfed his Javanese field site, now forever associated in our minds with those semiotic fighting roosters."
In the context of current events, where President Obama has, without a thought for the carnage wrought on innocent civilians in Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, Gaza, Pakistan, and now, Libya, has ordered wanton attacks by drone aircraft, Special Forces units, U.S. Army Stryker units, JSOC, OSP, the White House Murder INC, in the Levant..., "precision-guided" munitions (including those tipped with depleted uranium warheads), and, in the case of Libya, stand-off Tomahawk cruise missiles, the involvement of Dunham Soetoro with "blood sport" aficionados like Geertz , a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the CIA-linked Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, raises troubling questions. If Geertz was a role model for Obama's mother, and his mother was a role model for Obama, there is a distinct possibility that the President of the United States was raised within a household where mass murder of civilians was not considered a crime against humanity....
Geertz was the beneficiary of the largesse of CIA-linked philanthropic foundations, Rand Corporation, U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), CIA, and Pentagon funding in Java and Bali at the same time Dunham Soetoro was a young field anthropologist in western Java... Price writes that Geertz "ignored the Indonesian political setting that gave rise to death squads, military and police terror, institutionalized unemployment, and eventually to the bloodbath that followed the US-backed coup against Sukarno." And it was in this very environment that Obama's mother chose to raise her son who has stated that the massacre of between 750,000 and 1 million Indonesians was not known to his mother before she ventured to join her husband in Indonesia... Obama is either ignorant of history or engaged in a dishonest campaign to divorce his family from genocide in Indonesia that the record clearly indicates that they were involved to varying degrees in carrying out for the Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon administrations....
Geertz's role as a patron for Dunham Soetoro is also problematic when one considers that Geertz, who first entered Indonesia under the aegis of the Ford Foundation (and CIA)-funded Project Modjokuto in 1954. The project was conducted through the auspices of the CIA-funded Center for International Studies (CENIS) at MIT and Harvard University. Modjokoto was similar to the Pentagon's Project Camelot in Chile in the 1960s, which represented the use of anthropologists to conduct counter-insurgency studies among various ethnic groups in countries ripe for U.S. covert intervention....
The Beals Report cites the CIA's use of universities to carry out social science research: "There have also been disclosures of contracts involving the Central Intelligence Agency and certain U.S. universities, undertakings which appear to pose a threat to the integrity both of the universities as sponsors of social research and to the social sciences themselves."
The Beals Report states that Camelot, funded by a contract to the Special Operations Research Office at American University, used American social scientists who attempted to enlist Chilean social scientists, to carry out "a study of the social political factors related to the possibility of internal warfare in that country." The research was conducted some nine years before a bloody CIA-directed coup saw the assassination of democratically-elected President Salvador Allende, on September 11, 1973, and the imposition of a fascist regime under General Augusto Pinochet. The history of Obama's mother's involvement with anthropologists who were likely involved in Camelot may have been a factor in his failure to apologize while visiting Chile for the CIA's involvement in the assassination of Allende and its suspected involvement in the later murder of former President Eduardo Frei Montalva. Apologies for CIA crimes and the Infamous White House Murder INC, do not appear to be in Obama's political lexicon....
Modjokuto was the brainchild of the CIA's former assistant director of research and reports, Max Millikan, and Walt W. Rostow, who would later become a national security adviser to President Johnson. Supporting Modjokuto with a view that data gleaned from the project could ultimately be used to oust President Sukarno was Frank Wisner, Sr., a top CIA clandestine services official... Modjokuto's intentions were to transform Indonesia into a modern economic consumer-oriented nation-state, ripe for Western investment but resistant to armed insurgencies. It was a goal championed by Geertz and, later, Dunham Soetoro.
Another CIA operative who engaged in the use of anthropologists to carry out counter-insurgency campaigns was Colonel Edward Lansdale, who , in the CIA's campaign in the Philippines against Communist Huk guerrillas, broadcast messages in Tagalog from a loudspeaker mounted on a small aircraft flying above heavy cloud layer. The Huk-controlled villages that the curses , based on local myths, being broadcast by the aircraft were messages from the gods. In fact, Lansdale obtained the local cultural information from anthropologists on the CIA's payroll. Lansdale was later implicated in the CIA's and Pentagon's role in the conspiracy to assassinate President Kennedy....
As Professor Price points out in his article, Millkan and Rostow were the brains behind the co-option of anthropologists and U.S. development assistance programs to carry out the war against Communism. In a 1954 CIA point paper written by Millikan and "WWR" (Walt Whitman Rostow), titled "Notes on Foreign Economic Policy," it is stressed that . . . "free world success in seeing the underdeveloped countries through their difficult transition to self-sustaining growth would deny to Moscow and Peking the dangerous mystique that only Communism can transform underdeveloped societies."
When Dunham Soetoro went to Indonesia in 1967 to help in the CIA's and General Suharto's anti-Communist "mopping up" operations, the use of anthropologists as CIA field agents had the support of McGeorge Bundy, who became the National Security Adviser to Presidents Kennedy and Johnson and who was succeeded by Walt Rostow, one of the masterminds of Modjokuto. After leaving the White House, Bundy became the President of the Ford Foundation, the organization that laundered CIA money for Geertz's Modjokuto work and Dunham Soetoro's Communist targeting in post-Sukarno Indonesia.
An even darker side to the CIA's use of anthropologists in its research was the involvement of the CIA front, the Society for the Investigation of Human Ecology and the Human Ecology Fund, in research projects that involved the study of sex, stress, and refugees. These studies, a personal favorite of CIA director Allen Dulles, involved the study of human pain, methods of persuasion, and enhanced interrogation practices. The CIA "human ecology" projects link the CIA's MK-ULTRA, MK-NAOMI, and MK-DELTA psychological operations to field programs such as those involving both Ann Dunham and her husband, Lolo Soetoro, a participant in counter-insurgency operations in Indonesia and West Papua on the island of New Guinea. The Beal Report cites "large and unstudied" New Guinea as being "saturated" by an "increasing number of social scientists" who began encountering one another in the field.
The CIA's money-laundering process for Obama's mother's anthropology field work in Indonesia and Pakistan.
President Obama's upbringing in such an environment may explain his approval for the continued operation of the Guantanamo Bay gulag, the torture of Private First Class Bradley Manning in Quantico, and the continued operation of CIA "black sites" that are involved in the worldwide kidnapping and torture of detainees. In other words, the possible exposure of Obama to such practices at a young age may have created a "Manchurian candidate" in reverse, a president who obeys every command emanating from the top secret lairs of Langley....and the infamous White House Murder INC,...
We previously reported that Dunham Soetoro's and Lolo Soetoro's alma mater, the University of Hawaii, which hosted the CIA-funded East-West Center, was one of CIA director Richard Helms' five favorite universities for "behavioral sciences" studies... Behavioral science was also of keen interest to the Rockefeller family. The Beals Report states that after President Johnson, on September 15, 1965, presented "a major new program in international education and in the communication of scholarly knowledge and thought on a broadened international basis," the Division of Behavioral Sciences of the National Academy of Sciences-National Research Council formed a committee under Donald Young of Rockefeller University to advise the government on behavioral sciences research, in coordination with the Departments of Defense and State. The Rockefeller Foundation had been involved in funding a number of anthropological studies that were geared to the forced assimilation of the native Indians of northern Central America into nation states, including Guatemala and Mexico. The Rockefeller-funded program, linked to the CIA, was conducted through the "Yucatan Linguistics Surveys."
Senator Fred Harris (D-OK) held hearings before his Subcommittee on Government Research on foreign area research in the area of behavioral studies. Committee files indicate that the "research" involved the State Department, USAID, the Peace Corps, US Public Health Service, National Institutes of Health, and National Science Foundation. The Beals Report cites the National Defense Education Act as an important tool used by the Pentagon and CIA to ensure that universities succumbed to the foreign research dictates of the U.S. military and intelligence or risk losing their funding.
Dunham Soetoro's later work for the World Bank and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) in Indonesia and Asian Development Bank in Pakistan came at a time when developing countries were prime targets for American anthropologists who were working for entities in addition to the CIA. As Professor Price points out: "In the 1970s and 1980s, applied anthropologists found a small funding gold mine in the superpowers' competition for clients as USAID, the World Bank, and IMF contested for the debts and loyalties of the Third World." Contrary to the "invented" biography of Dunham Soetoro as some female version of Dr. Albert Schweitzer, Prince points out the result of the various projects funded by USAID, World Bank, and others: "Arguably, in the end, the debt created by most of these projects turns out to have had a greater societal impact than the social, health, or agricultural benefits they produced."
Professor Price provides a summation of the actual goals of foundations, such as Ford, in their funding of projects such as those of Dunham Soetoro in Indonesia and Pakistan:
". . . these foundations serve as intergenerational anti-devolutionary fortresses which protect large portions of amassed capital from inheritance and estate taxes - allowing family members to manage these funds, and direct research in areas of direct interest to the families and their investments."
The chief foundations that use tax-exempt provision to push overt and covert agendas are the "Big Three" - Ford, Carnegie, and Rockefeller - as well as Duke and Kellogg. Price points out of the role of anthropologists in this grand design of the foundation families, "Anthropology was earning its keep as a passive player in America's imperial braintrust."
The Beals Report contains a paragraph that directly applies to the suspicious field work carried out in Suharto's Indonesia by Dunham Soetoro beginning in 1967: "There are strong reasons to believe that private research organizations offering ‘systems' approaches, but without competent social science staffs or sufficient experience with problems of foreign research, are contracting to do very large Camelot-type studies in countries where these are acceptable to U.S. Ambassadors and the host governments. Experienced personnel do not exist for research on this scale. Young, partially trained, and inexperienced people are being recruited and in some cases literally seduced by extravagant salaries. Former Peace Corps personnel are being recruited to provide local country "expertise," an action not likely to produce proper advice, and one certain to undermine the integrity of the Peace Corps."
Local suspicions of the activities of anthropologists in nations like Indonesia are described in the Beals Report: "Some problems are particularly acute in the so-called developing countries, especially where there is limited understanding of social science and its purposes and possible utility, or where anthropology formerly was associated with the goals and administration of colonial governments."
In a major criticism of the CIA's use of anthropologists abroad, the Beals Report declares: It is reported that: Agents of the intelligence branches of the United States Government, particularly the Central Intelligence Agency, have posed as anthropologists or asserted that they were doing anthropological research. When in fact they were neither qualified as anthropologists nor competent to do basic anthropological studies. Journalists and others from the United States and elsewhere have also posed as anthropologists, and even though not involved in secret intelligence work for agencies of their governments, they have, through their behavior, created difficulties for legitimate anthropologists and their research." [It should be noted that after graduating from Columbia University in 1983, Barack Obama went to work for Business International Corporation, an entity that admitted to the use by the CIA of its journalists abroad as CIA agents under journalistic "cover."]
Beals launched a second broadside against the CIA for its use of anthropologists abroad (and appears to be a reference to those in Dunham Soetoro's category): "It is reported that: "Some of those qualified by training to call themselves anthropologists, and representing themselves as engaged in anthropological research, have actually been affiliated with United States intelligence agencies, especially the Central Intelligence Agency. This has come about through direct employment by these agencies, or through accepting grants from certain foundations with questionable sources of income [emphasis added], or through employment by certain private research organizations. In some cases, such persons have falsely represented themselves as still being associated with universities, although their prior academic affiliations no longer existed."
And in a third criticism of the CIA's use of anthropologists (and another possible reference to people like Dunham Soetoro), Beals states: "It is said that: Some anthropologists, particularly younger ones, who have encountered difficulties in securing funds for legitimate research, have been approached by obscure foundations or have been offered supplementary support from such sources, only to discover later that they were expected to provide intelligence information, usually to the Central Intelligence Agency. Some anthropologists are reported to have sought such support and to have accepted commissions willingly." Beals states that some of the foundations and "alleged foundations" could not be listed by name but could be "identified among those that do not publish balance sheets indicating the sources of their funds." Beals adds, "a few anthropologists report that they were approached by U.S. Embassy officials in the countries where they worked, or that they were interviewed by representatives of intelligence agencies after they had returned."
Beals concludes with two additional stark warnings about the use by U.S. intelligence of anthropologists abroad: "Although some individual anthropologists have been guilty of behavior that threatens to impair the access to foreign areas by their colleagues, the greatest dangers have actually come from contracts, actions, and projects of the United States Government and of some academic and private research organizations , even though these did not primarily involve anthropological activities." In addition, Beals states, "in several countries of South and Central America, Africa, and Asia financing from certain United States governmental sources is suspect and in some cases completely unacceptable. These sources include such mission-oriented agencies as the Department of Defense, Central Intelligence Agency, U.S. Information Agency, and the Department of State." One of Dunham Soetoro's first jobs in Jakarta was one funded by the USIA - one of the suspect agencies cited in the Beals Report....
