CIA involvement with religious groups not a new charge
By Wayne Madsen
Mar 13, 2009,


(WMR) -- Accusations that the CIA is involved with various religious movements, including the Nurcilar movement of Pennsylvania-based Turkish moderate Islamist leader Fethullah Gulen and the Unification Church of one-time Korean Central Intelligence Agency (KCIA) operative Reverend Sun Myung Moon, follow a long history of suspicions that the U.S. intelligence agency is deeply involved with some religious movements. The CIA has also been accused of using foreign missionaries as espionage agents.

A 1975 report by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Activities concluded that between the 1950s and 1960s, 21 missionaries were used as agents by the CIA. One of them was Roman Catholic missionary Reverend Tom Dooley who spied for the CIA as a doctor in Vietnam and Laos. He passed on information to the CIA about the political leanings of villagers and troop movements near the Laotian hospital where he worked as a doctor. The CIA recruited a number of their Chinese analysts from the families of U.S. missionaries in China.

A religious charity, World Medical Relief of Detroit, was used by the CIA as a conduit to funnel millions of dollars in secret aid to Laotian Hmongs that made up the CIA’s secret army in Laos that fought against the Communist Pathet Lao and North Vietnamese during the Vietnam War. Retired Air Force Brigadier General Harry Aderholt and former CIA station chief in Laos and Thailand Daniel Arnold admitted their role in funneling money to the Hmong through World Medical Relief in a November 1982 interview with the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

The Philadelphia Bulletin, on May 4, 1981, reported how the Wycliffe Bible Translators’ Summer Institute of Linguistics was suspected of working with the CIA. The institute reportedly received U.S. government grants for “special projects.” The institute employed some 1,500 missionaries worldwide who translated unwritten native languages in remote locations into written form and then translated the written text into the New Testament. The institute maintained supply bases and radio stations in some of the world’s most remote villages. In 1981, a Lancaster, Pennsylvania-based institute missionary, Charles Bitterman 3rd, was kidnapped by leftist rebels in Colombia and accused of being a CIA agent. Bitterman was later executed by his captors. The Bulletin said the Summer Institute “has been a target for more than a decade of rumors that it has spied, set up missile bases and even mined precious metals or run drug operations in Latin American countries. The rumors have never been confirmed.”

After the reports of links between the Summer Institute and the CIA, Mexico, Brazil, Panama, and Ecuador expelled Summer missionaries.

In February 1993, a Panamanian rebel group opposed to the U.S. invasion of Panama in 1989 -- the December 20-Torrijista Patriotic Vanguard -- kidnapped three American missionaries with an evangelical Sanford, Florida-based group called “New Tribes” or “Nuevas Tribus.” The rebel group claimed the three men were CIA agents. In 1983, an investigation by the Venezuelan Congress concluded that “New Tribes,” which was active in the Amazon region of the country and was converting native tribal members, was funded by General Dynamics and Westinghouse and industrial agents for the two firms were disguising themselves as missionaries to conduct mineral surveys in the resource-rich Amazon region of Venezuela.

In 2005, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez ordered all New Tribes Mission (NTM) missionaries, then active in 17 countries, expelled from Venezuela citing their links to the CIA. Chavez said the missionaries possessed wireless communications equipment and built landing strips for aircraft that avoided Venezuelan Customs. U.S. Ambassador to Venezuela William Brownfield defended the missionaries’ work. Brownfield, who is now the U.S. ambassador to Colombia’s narco-fascist regime, was accused of helping to organize coups and secessionist movements against Chavez.

Venezuelan Justice Minister Jesse Chacon accused NTM of conducting medical experiments on Venezuelan Yanomami Indians, killing 80 in the process. Chacon reiterated that the group had ties to both Westinghouse and General Dynamics and was seeking access to strategic mineral resources in the states of Amazonas, Bolivar, and Delta Amacuro.

Given links between New Tribes and the Reverend Billy Graham’s organization, there could be links between the missionaries and the defense contractor-infused and supported secretive Christian Fellowship of Arlington, Virginia, which treats Graham as its spiritual leader.

Right-wing Hindu groups have accused Christian missionaries of working for the CIA in India.

In 1975, President Gerald Ford admitted that the CIA had, in the past, used missionaries as agents and held out the possibility that it might do so in the future. Ford’s CIA director, George H. W. Bush, issued an internal CIA memo in 1976 that terminated “paid or contractual” relationships with “American clergymen” and stated the agreements would not be renewed. President Jimmy Carter’s CIA director, Stansfield Turner, issued another CIA guideline in 1977 that stated: “American church groups will not be used as funding cut-outs (fronts) for CIA purposes and that “no secret, paid or unpaid, contractual relationship with any American clergyman or missionary . . . who is sent out by a mission or church organization to preach, teach, heal or proselytize” will be established by the CIA.

National Council of Churches official Eugene Stockwell, a Methodist missionary, urged a ban on contacts between missionaries and the CIA. He stated, “Church bodies overseas have the right to expect that the relationships of United States religious personnel to those churches will be solely at the service of common worldwide Christian missions and will not be used in any way for the purpose of one government.” He added that the CIA’s use of missionaries threatened their safety.

In 1982, the issue of CIA use of missionaries was once again raised. CIA director William Casey and Vice President Bush tried to assure religious leaders that the agency had not returned to the practice of using missionaries as spies. According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch of June 13, 1982, Casey and CIA External Affairs Director William Doswell told the Richmond-based Southern Baptist Foreign Missions Board that the CIA’s use of missionaries violated the First Amendment on separation of church and state. The Baptist Mission Board president, Dr. R. Keith Parks, had requested the meeting with Casey due to “persistent rumors of contact” by CIA agents with missionaries. The same day Casey was meeting with the Southern Baptists in Richmond, Bush was taking up the missionary spy issue with officials at the Southern Baptist convention in New Orleans.

More recently, the CIA has been actively recruiting Mormon missionaries due to their foreign language skills and supposedly “clean” backgrounds.

Congolese Tutsi rebel General Laurent Nkunda, now allegedly exiled in Rwanda, is associated with a mysterious U.S.-based group called “Rebels for Christ.” Nkunda has been accused of receiving covert U.S. intelligence support through Rwanda.

Perhaps the most infamous CIA association with a religious group was the People’s Temple compound in Jonestown, Guyana.

On August 31, 2007, WMR reported, “WMR has uncovered documents that show the CIA kept extensive open source records on the agency’s suspected involvement in the People’s Temple cult that set up shop in Jonestown, Guyana, after moving from the San Francisco Bay Area. Most official U.S. intelligence files on Jonestown remain classified . . . 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, and were allegedly working for the CIA in Bangkok during the Vietnam war. Dwyer was wounded in the Port Kaituma shootings where [Congressman 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 were involved in the program.”

Recent reports from central Asia and Latin America suggest the CIA is back in its old business of mixing espionage with religion and giving credence to what some observers claim “CIA” actually stands for: “Christians In Action.”

In Uganda, President Museveni implemented an AIDS programme that was the most successful on the continent, based on common sense (promoting the use of condoms, mainly, and telling people through roadshows how the virus is transmitted). Then his wife converted to this American-style evangelical church, and next thing you know Uganda is adopting these bullshit "abstinence" programmes. The infection rate rallied very quickly.

I can't quite get my head around why, I think it's just plain cruelty, the same thing driving the opposition to abortion in the US, sort of "if you don't do as we tell you, you deserve to die a wasting death/struggle as a single mother". Also just the puritan's general distaste for sex and sensuality.

This is from Human Rights Watch in 2006 (excerpts, my emphasis):

A Tale of Two Presidential Initiatives

In 2001, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni returned from the UN General Assembly Special Session (UNGASS) on HIV/AIDS with an ambitious task: to launch Uganda’s first nationwide school-based HIV-prevention curriculum. As an acknowledged “success story” in the fight against AIDS, Uganda has long grasped the importance of teaching its young people the basic facts of AIDS, and had designed a series of curricula in the 1990s that addressed basic issues of HIV/AIDS and reproductive health. But Museveni had something bigger and better in mind: he wanted to create an HIV/AIDS curriculum that would reach every single pupil in the country, from the well-heeled youth in urban Kampala to the thousands of neglected orphans in the country’s conflict-stricken north. He called the initiative PIASCY, the President’s Initiative on HIV/AIDS Strategy on Communication to Youth.

Within months, AIDS educators around the country were hard at work putting together an updated HIV/AIDS curriculum for the country’s estimated 14,000 primary schools. Not surprisingly, the process was controversial. Religious groups wanted to include information warning pupils against pornography and “provocative” dress, while sex educators wanted to address taboo subjects like masturbation and homosexuality. Eventually a compromise was reached, and in March 2003, President Museveni launched a set of teachers’ manuals for distribution to all of the nation’s primary schools. The manuals contained chapters on how HIV is transmitted, how to protect oneself from infection, and how to treat people with AIDS with dignity and respect. Since many Ugandan primary school pupils are in their mid to late teens, the manuals also contained basic information on the importance of safer sex, condom use, being faithful, and getting an HIV test. Finally, the manuals contained information on “life skills” like how to “say no” to sex, how to avoid sexual violence, and how to maintain good sexual hygiene.

Meanwhile, back in Washington, D.C., another Presidential initiative on HIV/AIDS was in the works: the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, or PEPFAR. PEPFAR was also committed to expanding school-based HIV/AIDS education in developing countries, but it took a different approach. At the insistence of some members of the U.S. Congress, PEPFAR required that one-third of all HIV prevention spending go to “abstinence-until-marriage” programs, or those that teach sexual abstinence as the primary method of HIV-prevention. The preferred approach among U.S.-based evangelicals since the 1980s, abstinence-until-marriage programs omit information about condoms in the belief that safer sex messages encourage young people to be “promiscuous.” They focus on the idea that abstaining until marriage is the only “100 percent guaranteed” method of HIV prevention, promoting concepts such as “virginity pledges,” “secondary virginity” (for young people who have already had sex), and entering into “biblical marriage relationships.”

The U.S. government had been modestly supporting PIASCY in Uganda since before the launch of PEPFAR. But when the PIASCY manuals were released in March 2003, something strange occurred. Evangelical groups that had not been involved in the drafting of the materials began objecting to their content and actively blocking their distribution. One objector argued that a diagram of a penis with a condom on it would start encouraging young people to have sex. Other groups insisted on a new chapter on “ethics and morals,” in which young people would be taught to prevent HIV through “moral” conduct. “It got nastier and nastier,” said an AIDS educator who observed the entire process. “Everywhere the [PIASCY] manual said, “There will be some children who have sex,’ they crossed it out and said, ‘They should be told to stop.’” After increasing pressure, the PIASCY materials were pulled from circulation and sent back to the drawing board.

Officials at USAID, which has been funding PIASCY almost since the beginning, deny that PIASCY is “externally driven” and blame the controversy on “local factors.” Still, it seems unlikely that the U.S. government’s high-profile embrace of “abstinence-until-marriage” approaches did not influence the local religious groups. Moreover, the most vocal supporters of abstinence-until-marriage approaches in Uganda – First Lady Janet Museveni and Pastor Martin Ssempa of the Makerere Community Church – are known to have close ties to U.S. evangelical churches and conservative members of the U.S. Congress. Even President Museveni himself, traditionally a supporter of comprehensive HIV prevention approaches, began making statements in 2004 objecting to the prominent role of condoms in national HIV prevention campaigns – statements many attribute to the U.S. government’s new-found support for abstinence-only approaches along with their continuing support for his government.

The new PIASCY materials omitted information about condoms and safer sex that had appeared in the original versions. Diagrams depicting condoms, safer sex, puberty, and genital hygiene were purged. The final materials omitted the statement that “condoms will be an important part of your protection plan when you start having sex when you are older,” replacing them with statements such as “pre-marital sex is risky” and “for pupils, sex leads to great sadness.” They also stated that premarital sex and homosexuality “violate religious or cultural moral standards” and are considered “immoral.” One teachers’ manual for older primary pupils preserved some information about condoms, stating that “used consistently and correctly, condoms protect against HIV/STIs and pregnancy.”

I can't quite get my head around why, I think it's just plain cruelty


I'd like to pose a more pessimistic, even paranoid, explanation.

If sub-Saharan Africa has indeed been the number-one testing ground for biological weapons, vaccines and the like, and if this really does have to do with the origins of AIDS more than simply people eating green monkeys, there is much to consider here.

I believe that the Rockefeller Foundation set up a big laboratory in Uganda from back in the 30's to gather up samples of all kinds of emerging diseases. I also think that the Rockefeller Foundation was clearly intersted in funding the developlment of chemical and biological weapons.

It also looks possible that the genesis of Ebola and AIDS have something to do with labs in Mobutu's Congo, and I believe that the so-called Highway of Death ran from these labs in Central Congo up towards Uganda.

So, if this is at all valid, there may be powerful people who don't want to stop the spread of AIDS, really, but are happy to see ordinary people die, whether because they are guinea pigs and/or because it reduces the population, causes more stress and misery, or whatever.

Add to this Uganda's position as a client of the United States, and the fact that the Kony Rebels aka the Lord's Resistance Army brainwashes kids to murder in a way that is functionally similar to what "Satanic" cults with intel ties do inside the U.S., and you've got at least a suspicious situation, I would say...

Jeez... I hadn't got quite there in my paranoia, but you might be onto something... You also reminded me of Big Pharma's efforts to stop the SA government from buying generic anti-retroviral drugs in India. Might the next step be a pious increase of aid to Africa under Obama to deal with the AIDS crisis, but on condition the medical budget be spent on ARVs from US drug companies?

Speaking of pious, I just saw this:

Pope rejects condom use in Africa

Pope Benedict XVI has said that handing out condoms is not the answer in the fight against HIV/Aids, as he makes his first visit to Africa as pontiff.

Speaking en route to Cameroon, he said distribution of condoms "increases the problem". The Vatican urges abstinence.

Speaking to reporters on his way to Cameroon's capital, Yaounde, the Pope said HIV/Aids was "a tragedy that cannot be overcome by money alone, that cannot be overcome through the distribution of condoms, which can even increase the problem".

Fucking arsehole.

Dambisa Moyo is a Zambian-born economist who says aid is killing Africa.

In her new book, Dead Aid, she argues that official aid is easy money that fosters corruption and distorts economies, creating a culture of dependency and economic laziness.

Moyo is particularly dismissive of the ‘celebrity aid’ model popularised by international stars such as Bob Geldof and Bono and says many aid organisations and NGOs are more interested in perpetuating poverty in order to justify their own existence.

Controversially, she advocates turning off the aid taps within five years and claims this will result in more Africans being pulled out of poverty.

Moyo, who has a doctorate in Economics from Oxford University, and a Masters from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, has been a consultant to the World Bank and recently worked for Goldman Sachs in London.

Citing figures showing an exponential growth in poverty in an era of burgeoning aid, Moyo says the aid model has been a disaster. She says 10 percent of Africans were living in poverty in the 1970s compared to 70 percent now.

Moyo concedes humanitarian and charity aid can help but not in the longer term. She aims her harshest criticism at the flow of aid from the governments of developed nations to African governments and also aid from institutions such as the World Bank.

Moyo tells Philip Williams in London that African governments need to become accountable to their people and as long as the West keeps on handing them free money, the only growth happening is in the Swiss bank accounts of the political elite.

She says Africa should be responsible for itself, and follow in the footsteps of countries like China and India. A strong believer in the power of the market, Moyo isn’t fazed by the current crisis facing capitalism. She believes it’s still the best model the world has, despite its flaws, and says Africa should focus on encouraging investment rather than simply waiting for hand-outs.

Who the Heck is Peter Waldron?
Image
It all begins with one question: What was Peter Waldron doing in Uganda with a bunch of guns hidden in his house?

The government of Uganda intends to find out, and so is putting Waldron on trial for terrorism. In the process of that trial, the American people may find out quite a bit about their own government that they don’t like.

Let’s list what we know about Peter Waldron, and then we’ll try to piece the picture together a bit later:

- Peter Waldron is from Wyoming - Dick Cheney’s home state
- Like Dick Cheney, Peter Waldron seems to be fond of guns. Waldron was found with assault rifles hidden in his bedroom by a crowd of Ugandans in his Kisugu home (outside Kampala) just after the re-election of Yoweri Museveni
- Two men were seen leaving Waldron’s house carrying a bag that contained two assault rifles just before Waldron himself was apprehended
- Waldron claims to have been working as an information technology consultant for the Ugandan ministry of health
- Waldron also claims to have been working as the publisher of a news magazine, the Africa Dispatch, but other accounts list Waldron as just a freelance writer and photographer
- The Africa Dispatch appears to be created in partnership with a writer affiliated with the right wing Reverend Moon’s Unification Church
- Waldron worked with a company known as the Contact America Group
- Documents found on Waldron indentify him as an advisor to the Rocky Mountain Technology Group
- Waldron is also the founder of a right wing Christian group, the Cities of Faith Ministries...

The life of Dr. William Close
Image
February 9, 2009

We remember the late Doctor William Close who passed away last month. He was the father of actress Glenn Close, and once the personal doctor of the president of Zaire ( Mobutu also had met Patrice Lumumba ). While there he worked to stop the first Ebola epidemic in Zaire. Anchor Marco Werman talks to a friend and colleague of Dr. Close, Dr. Joel Breman, of the National Institutes of Health.

Joe - I saw across Dambisa Moyo's name for the first time this week. She makes some good points but leaves out half the story: if trade is to make a difference, the rich countries need to drop their trade barriers and the connected companies who have lobbied for those laws will lose their advantage. She doesn't seem to spell that out anywhere, how strange!

I don't trust anyone from Goldman Sachs.

Yeah I know what you mean. I saw that interview with her last night, and it was bit sus. Interesting that she thought opening up the barriers to foreign investment would be the panacea when in fact ...

I think she has a point about aid, and about the whole protection for poor third worlders industry.

But I dunno what her agenda is, cos she didn't mention much about farm subsidies and other barriers to actual free and fair trade.

The CIA's Buddhist affair

Around the world this week, as monks, exiles and supporters of the Dalai Lama marked the 50th anniversary of a failed Tibetan uprising, politicians and state-run media outlets in Beijing preached at length about the Communist Party's liberation of Tibetan slaves.

Meanwhile, in suburban Washington, John Kenneth Knaus, a retired CIA officer who led a covert command centre from New Delhi 50 years ago, worked on a new book about 100 years of American involvement in Tibet, including his own experiences feeding weapons and supplies to monks and resistance fighters.

On March 10, 1959, thousands of Tibetans surrounded the Dalai Lama's palace in Lhasa for fear that their spiritual leader might soon be abducted by the occupying force Mao Zedong had maintained in Tibet since 1950. Soon, protesters across the region were declaring Tibet's independence.

Seven days later the Dalai Lama was gone, spirited out of the country on horseback to India.

Some estimate more than 85,000 Tibetans died in the conflict that ensued as the Chinese army cracked down on the revolt.

Knaus had been working on the CIA's Tibetan file since the mid-1950s. Before taking up his post in New Delhi, he had helped train some 300 Tibetan resistance fighters in Colorado.

He says no American operatives were ever dropped into Tibet, though he says that in July 1958 and February 1959, the CIA did airdrop guns, hand grenades and rounds of munitions...

No surprises

That the CIA and Allen Dulles are to be found as one of the reasons for the rift between the Chinese government and the Dalai Lama comes as no surprise. That the U.S. bears a large chunk of responsibility for the ongoing disaster in the China-Tibet relationship is unlikely to be acknowledged, just like similar screw-ups in SE Asia, Iran, and Latin America. At the very least the U.S. should come clean about the true role of the Dalai Lama in this misbegotten exercise, if they are really serious about helping these two parties resolve their 50-year-long conflict.

"Who the heck is Peter Waldron?"

Funny you should ask... I used to hear him when I listened to a lot of right wing Christian radio back in the late 1980s. He was a talk show host (mentioned in the article you link to) who liked to make a big deal about how connected he was to the Reagan admin. I forget the exact name of his program, but it was meant to illuminate current events from a Christian perspective. What it mainly illuminated was what egomaniacal psychopaths Waldron and friends were. My most vivid memory was when they had two feuding Religious Right operatives and they were each literally calling on God to strike the other with lightening.

And now here he is spreading mischief in the third world. I was just wondering the other day what had become of him.
