Reinhard Gehlen, Hitler's
master spy who had built up an intelligence network in the Soviet Union.
With full US blessing, he creates the "Gehlen Organization," a band of
refugee Nazi spies who claim to reactivate their networks in Russia.
These include SS intelligence officers Alfred Six and Emil Augsburg (massacred Jews in the
Holocaust), Klaus Barbie ("Butcher of Lyon"), Otto von Bolschwing
(Holocaust mastermind worked with Eichmann) and SS Colonel Otto Skorzeny
(personal friend of Hitler).
The Gehlen Organization supplies the US
with the only intelligence on the
Soviet Union for the next
ten years and serves as a bridge between the abolishment of the OSS and the
creation of the CIA.
Much of the "intelligence" the former Nazis
provide is bogus.
Gehlen inflates Soviet military capabilities at a
time when Russia is still rebuilding its devastated society, in order to
inflate his own importance to the Americans (who might otherwise punish

Paul Wolfowitz and the DPG
came to be known as the "Wolfowitz Doctrine."

Cheney does not publicly
defend the document but behind closed doors he wholeheartedly endorses it,
telling Zalmay Khalizad, the main
writer of the document, "You have discovered a new rationale for our role in
the world." (Hoyle 2008: 50).
The belief the document represented fringe
beliefs of a few neoconservatives led by Wolfowitz has only been challenged
recently by documents declassified in 2008.
The documents clearly show
that the DPG was planned and drafted in full consultation with
Cheney and many other Pentagon officials (Burr 2008).

view of war not as a burden but as an opportunity.
McClellan said in his

opportunity for transformative change of the kind Bush hoped to achieve"

This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a
new philosophical ideology to which its author adheres. The author feels that
the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace
unable to discern propaganda
from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international
corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of
reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses
to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their
religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a mystery school aptly
named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic
mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no
tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every
individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and
Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing
the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The
Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on
this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their
religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site
in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the
violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels
desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already
controls the world banking system, corporate media worldwide, the global
industrial military entertainment complex of America and is responsible for the
collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction
of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation.
Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.
mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the
corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests
in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by
pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population
through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the
destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not
adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of
a perfect world. Through
distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population
has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite
that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
