A BALLAD OF DRUGS AND 9/11

The truth shall make you free

— CIA Slogan
By Peter Dale Scott.
See also: The Global Drug Meta-Group

At the First Emperor’s Tomb

the Chinese People’s Republic

shows you a preliminary movie

in which this monument of empire

is seen through the eyes of peasants

who rose up in revolt

and smashed the terra cotta statues

we have come so far to see.

I tried asking whether the government

is more in favor of the tomb

or of its being smashed? The guide answered

Both! We think the tao of history

contains both the bright yang of order

and the dark yin of revolt.

So I said, Does that mean

that in the present phase of history

the yin is the Falun Gong?

A short silence. Then

You must understand that in China

there are some things we do not think about.

I know why I’m remembering this.

There are things we don’t think about in America

things I don’t want to think about myself

like this flood of emails from Russia

about Far West, Ltd.

a meta-group almost unknown

and yet so powerful

as well as secure from the law

it could manipulate the drug traffic

to serve both the Kremlin

and similar ruling cabals

such as the one in this country

and also manipulate states

for the ends of the drug traffic

spreading violence in an organized route

from Afghanistan to New York

as when in July ’99 a group —

citizens of three continents Venezuela Turkey United Arab Emirates Germany Britain

with excellent connections between them

to al-Zawahiri the brains of al-Qaeda

the Kremlin, Langley, FARC, and the KLA CIA, Colombian revolutionaries, Kosovo Liberation Army

a group supplying full service

like BCCI before them Bank of Credit and Commerce International

Who else could wire something together

to Saudi Arabia China Israel and the U.S.? — Beaty and Gwynne 347

gathered near Nice in southern France

to arrange in the villa of Khashoggi Cockburn ’00;Dunlop ‘04

the richest man in the world Kessler

for an invasion, bombings in Moscow

and the transit of heroin through Kosovo

to be sold in the streets of New York

where sales doubled in four years – Peter Klebnikov ‘00

a deal between Alexandr Voloshin

(the agent in the Kremlin

of the oligarch Boris Berezovskii

the richest businessman in Russia) Dunlop ’04; Paul Klebnikov ‘00, 1, 293, 303

Shamil’ Basaev (the Chechen Wahhabi

once controlled and financed by Berezovskii Paul Klebnikov ‘00, 300-01

who next month rekindled the Chechen War

by his brief incursion into Dagestan) Hunter, 154

who lives in Munich, knows Khashoggi, Dunlop ‘04

and is now a banker for FARC) http://www.compromat.ru/main/surikov/a.htm

Yakov Kosman (reported

by the scholar John Dunlop

from the Hoover Institution

to be German and, possibly, Israeli Dunlop ‘04

suppressing the rest of his footnoted source:

Kosman served as financial consultant

to Hashim Thaçi, the commander of KLA Kosovo Liberation Army; Yasenev ‘04

the Kosovo Liberation Army

just when The Times wrote of evidence

that drug money is funding –

as much as half of the funding —

the KLA’s leap to power) Times (London), 3/24/99

Anton Surikov (the GRU agent Russian military intelligence

whose study Crime in Russia

on the extraordinary extent to which the Colombian

cartel has targeted Russia

was published by King’s College London Surikov ’95, http://www.iprog.ru/cast/?id=8

followed by an invitation

to a Seminar in Virginia

on International Security

where he met Fritz Ermarth of the CIA)

and — this part I got first

from my poetic intuition —

was recruited both for his knowledge

and his access to the drug trade:

a hunch confirmed by the CIA’s

payment to his friend “Mekhmet” Yasenev ‘04

who was also at Khashoggi’s villa Dunlop ‘04

and to whom (says Dunlop’s source)

the CIA gave an “assignment”

to transmit $300,000

for the killing of his friend Abu al-Walid Abu al-Walid al-Ghamdi

Chechnya Weekly 2/2/05

when the CIA was concerned

al-Walid on leaving Chechnya

would go on to Iraq

to join up with al-Zarqawi. Yasenev ‘04

Why would Dunlop a reputable scholar

present the meeting in Khashoggi’s villa

as a mere plan for a Russian 9/11

at the behest of Yeltsin’s Kremlin

ignoring the role at the villa

of men like Sosnaliev and Tsveiba

from Abkhazia which now has become

a key heroin transiting point? Sida/Cornell Caspian ‘02

Did he suppress what his source

said about Surikov and Fritz Ermarth,

Mekhmet and the CIA

Kosman and the KLA

because just like myself

he did not want to think

about who was involved in opening

the new Kosovo drug route

after the mad dash of Russian troops

one month before the meeting June 11, 1999

to seize the main Kosovo airport Judah 279, 284-85

without the knowledge of Yeltsin Shevtsova 285, fn. 11

just as Al McCoy and myself

both forgot the terrorized vet

who reneged on telling us about drugs

after they firebombed his Jag. McCoy xii, Scott ’89 147-48

There are two kinds of businesses:

those which flourish from peace

and the strengthening of law

and those which require the opposite

zones of incessant chaos

like Chechnya Colombia Afghanistan

where drugs can be grown or trafficked

under the watch of PMCs private military companies

The CIA clearly knew this

when in 2001

they brought back “Mr. Ten Percent” Haji Mohammed Zaman

at the top of the heroin trade

from Dijon to Jalalabad Smucker, 9

and arranged for the release

of Haji Ayub Afridi from jail Raman

(the same men who in the ‘80s

had organized the heroin trail

to the Soviet troops —

i.e. to Filin and Surikov —

with the blessings of the CIA) Raman

thus restoring the Afghan

opium economy

after two years of prohibition

under the Taliban. Scott ’03 33, 43-44

and pushing America and Russia

still further down the path

of increasing superwealth

and declining average income

(my starting salary in ’61 $7250.00

could buy a third of a good Berkeley house

whereas a starting salary today

would pay for perhaps a twentieth)

increasing income disparities

the sign our state is declining

the homeless we no longer support

and have grown used to not thinking about

as we step across them

towards our ATMs

what Sallust and Arnold discerned

in Rome and Victorian London

privatim opulentia

publice egestas Sallust, Arnold

until the republic is suborned

by these forces we cannot see

for which the intellectual price

is a shrinkage of our culture

towards the trivialities

of narcotic games and bottom-feeding poets.

Starting in 1998

Surikov, Alfonso, and Mekhmet

had their own PMC Far West http://www.pravda.info/news/2695.html

connected with the secured transport

of commercial shipments from Afghanistan Filin ‘05

and with representatives in the Emirates,

Afghanistan, Colombia, Kosovo http://www.pravda.info/news/2695.html

as well as contracts with Halliburton

(Far West’s leader Vladimir Filin

the suspected chief narcobaron Kaledin ‘03

announced that “a well-known American corporation

is a co-founder of our agency” Filin ‘05

while Filin and Far West

worked on the Georgian project,

financed by KBR Halliburton, apparently

with the approval of CIA) Yasenev’04

and Diligence Middle East a PMC

with success in securing contracts

from Neil Bush, the President’s brother Financial Times, 12/11/03. Cf. Asia Times, 5/20/04

headed by Joe Allbaugh Financial Times, 12/11/03; Asia Times, 5/20/04

who in 2000 organized

both the Bush-Cheney campaign

and the “19th floor riot” that

stopped the recount in Miami-Dade County Floridagate

and then was made head of FEMA .

the agency that with Cheney and Rumsfeld Mann, 139; Bamford, 72

had developed “Reagan’s Secret Coup Plans”

in the 1980s “Reagan’s Secret Coup Plans” Progressive Review, July 1988

the plans for COG Continuity of Government

the plans for an anti-constitutional takeover

in a time of crisis Progressive Review, June 1998. Cf. New York Times, 11/18/91

implemented on 9/11

after Bush had entrusted

Cheney and Allbaugh together

to set up a terrorism task force

to deal with terrorist attacks Houston Chronicle, 5/9/01; Ruppert, 412-18

It is too much. I think of Petrov

blown up in his car in Cape Town

after bugging his quarrel with Surikov

at the Hotel Bristol in Vienna Petrov ‘04

and I think of Indira Singh

who lost her job at J.P. Morgan

after she notified the FBI

about Ptech the hi-tech Islamist firm

bankrolled by Yasin al-Qadi,

a wealthy Saudi investor

who has been officially designated

as a terrorism financier Boston Herald, 1/18/04

with contracts at FAA

the White House the Secret Service

and links to the local Al Kifah al Qaeda support group

followed by a Treasury raid

on Ptech and then the immediate Boston Globe, 12/7/02; WBZ4, 12/9/02

firing of Paul O’Neill Secretary of the Treasury

Singh spoke publicly about Ptech

the FBI agents themselves

basically indicated to me

that absolutely no investigation was going on

at which point my hair stood on end NPR Radio, 12/8/02

adding as an aside

when I ran into the drugs

I was told that if I mentioned

the money to the drugs around 9/11

that would be the end of me. Indira Singh testimony

I remember the defeat and fear

in the face of Allan Francovich

whose film on Pan Am 103 and drugs Goddard ZZ

could be shown in Britain but not this country

the last time he contacted me

via a cut-out a mutual friend

one year before he dropped dead

while going through U.S. Customs Independent 4/28/97

and what happened to Danny Casolaro

also researching the so-called Octopus Beaty and Gwynne 224-25

until suicided in a West Virginia motel Buffalo News 8/27.93

with my name and number in his notebook

I think of Jim Wilcutt at the weapons protests

his brains scrambled and deranged

after he testified to Congress

about Lee Harvey Oswald and the CIA Hurt ’85, 203

Forgive me if I do not want to think

of how they destroyed L

the Republican businessman

(whose innocent mistake was to tell the FBI

about the Nicaraguan drug lord

who picked up the dinner tab

at the fundraiser in San Francisco

L had arranged for the Contras

after which L got a death threat

over the phone while waiting

in Senator Kerry’s outer office

for a secret rendez-vous)

and of what N told us — how Carlos Carlos Lehder

was released from his hundred-year sentence

to peddle cocaine to Russia

his name in the Lafayette phone book

It is a dilemma: Part of me

needs to agree with the left

that we have to wake up America

that it is knowledge will make us free

(the idea being that truth

unites us in thinking together

whereas these truths of darkness

have been known to destroy

those who have published them Gary Webb, Independent 10/8/05

and I myself can share with no one

except those who like myself

have become distanced from the crowd).

Part of me just meditates

on the new and more flourishing wildlife

that is improving Point Reyes

ten years after the Mount Vision fire San Francisco Chronicle 10/2/05

From the glories of the Tang Dynasty

I recall only one date: the year

of the usurper An Lushan

who drove both Wang Wei and Du Fu

far from the corrupt court

into the mountains

where for the first time they were free

to write the only poems we remember.

bankrolled by Yasin al-Qadi,

a wealthy Saudi investor

who has been officially designated

as a terrorism financier Boston Herald, 1/18/04

with contracts at FAA

the White House the Secret Service

and links to the local Al Kifah al Qaeda support group

followed by a Treasury raid

on Ptech and then the immediate Boston Globe, 12/7/02; WBZ4, 12/9/02

firing of Paul O’Neill Secretary of the Treasury

Singh spoke publicly about Ptech

the FBI agents themselves

basically indicated to me

that absolutely no investigation was going on

at which point my hair stood on end NPR Radio, 12/8/02

adding as an aside

when I ran into the drugs

I was told that if I mentioned

the money to the drugs around 9/11

that would be the end of me. Indira Singh testimony

I remember the defeat and fear

in the face of Allan Francovich

whose film on Pan Am 103 and drugs Goddard ZZ

could be shown in Britain but not this country

the last time he contacted me

via a cut-out a mutual friend

one year before he dropped dead

while going through U.S. Customs Independent 4/28/97

and what happened to Danny Casolaro

also researching the so-called Octopus Beaty and Gwynne 224-25

until suicided in a West Virginia motel Buffalo News 8/27.93

with my name and number in his notebook

I think of Jim Wilcutt at the weapons protests

his brains scrambled and deranged

after he testified to Congress

about Lee Harvey Oswald and the CIA Hurt ’85, 203

Forgive me if I do not want to think

of how they destroyed L

the Republican businessman

(whose innocent mistake was to tell the FBI

about the Nicaraguan drug lord

who picked up the dinner tab

at the fundraiser in San Francisco

L had arranged for the Contras

after which L got a death threat

over the phone while waiting

in Senator Kerry’s outer office

for a secret rendez-vous)

and of what N told us — how Carlos Carlos Lehder

was released from his hundred-year sentence

to peddle cocaine to Russia

his name in the Lafayette phone book

It is a dilemma: Part of me

needs to agree with the left

that we have to wake up America

that it is knowledge will make us free

(the idea being that truth

unites us in thinking together

whereas these truths of darkness

have been known to destroy

those who have published them Gary Webb, Independent 10/8/05

and I myself can share with no one

except those who like myself

have become distanced from the crowd).

Part of me just meditates

on the new and more flourishing wildlife

that is improving Point Reyes

ten years after the Mount Vision fire San Francisco Chronicle 10/2/05

From the glories of the Tang Dynasty

I recall only one date: the year

of the usurper An Lushan

who drove both Wang Wei and Du Fu

far from the corrupt court

into the mountains

where for the first time they were free

to write the only poems we remember.
