Posted on 04/30/2006 12:15:40 PM PDT by Sam Hill
Here is another informative schematic from Jennifer Verner:
Readers are encouraged to Google the groups and individuals listed to find out just who William Goodfellow is, and what those "secret prison" articles penned by his wife Dana Priest are really all about.
Orlando Letelier - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
During the FBI investigation into Leteliers assassination, the contents of the briefcase he had with him were copied and leaked to Rowland Evans and Robert Novak of the Washington Times before being returned to his widow. The documents show that Letelier was in constant contact with the surviving political leadership of the various parties that made up the Popular Unity coalition exiled in East Berlin, been given refuge and supported by the East German Government during their stay. The FBI suspected that these individuals had been recruited by the Stasi. Documents in the briefcase showed that Letelier had maintained contact with Salvador Allendes daughter, Beatriz Allende who was married to Cuban DGI station chief Luis Fernandez Ona.
According to the documents, Letelier was able to receive funding of $5,000 a month from the Cuban government and under the supervision of Beatriz Allende, he used his contacts within the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) and western human rights groups to organize a campaign within the United Nations as well as the US Congress to isolate the new Chilean government, also know as Operation TOUCAN. This organized pressure on Pinochets government was thought to have been closely coordinated by the Cuban and Soviet governments, using individuals like Letelier to implement these efforts. Leteliers briefcase also contained his address book which contained the names of dozens of known and suspected East Block intelligence agents. All correspondence between Letelier and individuals in Cuba had been handled via Julian Rizo, who used his diplomatic status to hide his activities.
Letelier and Goodfellow founded the Center For International Policy together.
More connections ping.
He's definitely a subversive.
Great job! Thanks, Sam.
AL QAEDA IS IN YOUR FACE IN YOUR CITY NOW
WHILE CALIFORNIA & DC POLITICIANS CHEER THEM
WILL YOU BE FLYING ON FLIGHT 94?
I thought you were watching James Bond! Not the right girl in that movie, huh?
Fabulous posted graphics, as always.
I'm in the midst of following the dots, thanks to Jennifer and to you.
Sam, and all:
I encourage us all to share this document with everyone we know, friends, email groups, bloggers, and ask them to pass it along too. Have any contacts in the media? Send it to them as well. It's maddening for me to find out after all this time, and all the kudos Dana Priest has received, we have not been made aware of her personal connections.
If Richard Melon Scaife's wife were a reporter for The Washington Times, writing about Hillary, don't you think every word she wrote would be held up to intense scrutiny and scorn? Certainly she wouldn't have been allowed to write a single column without having to disclose her personal bio.
Thanks for that info.
As you probably know, the CIP seems to have had a lot of co-founders, including James Morrell. So I'm not sure what Goodfellow's exact role was at the time. He is now its Executive Director.
Again, you probably know this, but others may not--but the CIP is a spinoff of a spinoff.
It was born out of the so-called Government Accounting Project:
GAP - Government Accountability Project
Which in turn was born out of the Institute of Policies Studies:
Institute for Policy Studies - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Which was really just a Communist operation:
Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and the IPS
And it is clear that the apple has not fallen one inch from the tree. The CIP is just as Communist in their leanings as the IPS.
BTW, all or some of these people were very heavily involved in the castration of the CIA (and the rest of the US intel community) by the Church Committee.
And they had a major hand in crafting the FISA courts, as well:
Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and the IPS
Thanks, YaYa. And you're exactly right about the outrage we'd hear if a reporter was found to have conservative ties.
Priest has been a reporter for years, and her political connections have never been mentioned before.
Of course that is true of some many in our one party media.
I know Susan Weber is not an uncommon name, but is this Susan Weber the same person as Susan Weber Soros, born 1957 in NYC, married to George Soros 1983, now divorced.
From other sources SWS's CV:
Susan Weber Soros PhD BA Art History, Barnard College, Columbia University, New York, USA, 1977. Work experience: Director and Faculty Member, The Bard Graduate Center, New York, USA, 1992; Founder and Publisher, Source Notes in the History of Art, USA, 1980.
Still somewhere between 1977 and early 80s there could have been a stint at Soviet Life? Any ideas?
Which is why "W" knew, to keep anything secret, he would have to bypass the FISA courts - which are simply a conduit to the traitors.
Why do you think the libs hate his "Western White house"? He can do business there and they have no bugs or ability to get close enough with surveillance equipment to eavesdrop. Which is why the "WWH" was built. (Remember, Pres. Bush1 was head of the CIA - the Bushes know what goes on and how to circumvent the traitors
Thanks for the links. There's a whole slew of these groups with interlocking personnel and it's a chore to keep track of them all without a scorecard. IPS is definitely near the heart of the spider web, along with the Fund for Peace, which has shared office space with CIP and several related groups.
I don't know, but that'd be pretty interesting if it were the case.
The source I was quoting indicated that Weber's registration as a Soviet employee was prior to her work at CIP, which may mean her stint with Soviet Life was before 1977. Here's a link mentioning her, along with some other interesting information about CIP, Anthony Lake, and others:
The Senate will surely want to closely scrutinize Lake's involvement with the Center for International Policy (CIP) in Washington, DC. As an official consultant for the CIP during the 1970s, Lake was an associate of Orlando Letelier, who served on the CIP's board of directors. Letelier and Lake were also connected through their mutual involvement in the Institute for Policy Studies, a Marxist think tank with numerous ties to communist intelligence agencies. When Letelier was killed by a car bomb, incriminating documents found in his briefcase pointed to many highly placed people. One of those was Richard Feinberg. Feinberg resigned from the Treasury Department to avoid investigation into his own involvement with the Letelier network. Also among the briefcase contents was a letter from radical activist Elizabeth Farnsworth cautioning Letelier against mentioning Feinberg's name because that might jeopardize his reputation and career at Treasury and his usefulness to the cause. Yet Anthony Lake, who at that time was serving as director of President Carter's State Department Policy Planning Staff, hired Feinberg on at State.
Ms. Farnsworth also wrote admiringly to Letelier of the good work that "Bill Goodfellow" was accomplishing for the revolution. She was referring, of course, to William Goodfellow, the CIP director, who is a very bad fellow. How bad? Bad enough to stubbornly defend the murderous Khmer Rouge communists in Cambodia long after most leftists had decided the genocidal slaughter was just too obvious to deny anymore.
Still another sterling staff member with Lake at CIP was Susan Weber, a former editor of Soviet Life, the official propaganda organ published at the Soviet embassy for American consumption. In that communist endeavor, Ms. Weber was forced to register as an agent of a "foreign power." At CIP, she could carry out essentially the same task without the inconvenience of registering. Another CIP consultant was Edwin Martin, who was identified to intelligence authorities in 1947 as a member of a Soviet spy ring. When you start tugging on the CIP thread, you end up at the Fund For Peace (FFP), long one of the most openly pro-communist outfits in the country. The CIP was founded by, and is funded by, the FFP. A longtime trustee of the Fund was Louise R. Berman. And who is she? A longtime Red and hard-core Stalinist, Berman was the subject of extensive congressional investigation into communist activities during the 1940s and 50s. She was a contact and a courier for Stalin's NKVD (precursor to the KGB) and GRU (military intelligence) agents in the U.S. and worked with J. Peters, the Kremlin's top Comintern representative on the central committee of the Communist Party, USA. Berman is only one of many notorious communists and subversives involved with the CIP/FFP network in which Lake operated for many years.
"I know Susan Weber is not an uncommon name, but is this Susan Weber the same person as Susan Weber Soros, born 1957 in NYC, married to George Soros 1983, now divorced."
They are still married. You're thinking of Soros' first wife, Anneliese.
Sorry. My mistake.
Soros is now divorced from Susan, too.
Good catch, fedora!
I love your new headlines and crafty touches.
Marxican! Very good.
