Office of Strategic Services

"During World War II and its political aftermath, Sullivan & Cromwell lawyers such as noted partners John Foster Dulles and Arthur Dean played important individual roles in helping shape domestic policy and international affairs." - Sullivan & Cromwell LLP

When the Office of Strategic Services was founded wealthy individuals were approached and asked to spy for America.

Aristocracy traveled and socialized with other wealthy individuals.

From the very beginning intelligence has been aiding and abetting the transnational corporate elite reflecting the biases of that class.

What has leaked out over the years paints an image of a rogue operation beholden to a transnational corporate elite concerned only with profit.

Public diplomacy, psychological operations, influence agents, disinformation and computer information warfare - from open and overt to clandestine and covert, from public explanation of policy to secret subversion of enemies.

All of these must be well-orchestrated by a symphonic conductor.

Wild Bill Donovan, the OSS, and the CIA

1941 In preparation for World War II, Franklin D Roosevelt creates the Office of Coordinator of Information (COI).

William "Wild Bill" Donovan heads the new intelligence service.

1942 Roosevelt restructures COI into something more suitable for covert action, the Office of Strategic Services (OSS).

4 partners and 35 associates of Sullivan & Cromwell are given upper management poistions.

Donovan recruits so many of the nation's rich and powerful that eventually people joke that "OSS" stands for "Oh, so social!" or "Oh, such snobs!"

1943 Donovan recruits the Black Jesuits of the Catholic Church in Rome to be the center of Anglo-American spy operations in Fascist Italy.

This becomes America' most enduring intelligence alliance in the Cold War.

Charles Douglas Jackson joins the OSS.

Edward Hunter, reporting for the Chicago Tribune's Paris edition, lives in Japan and in China from the mid-1920s to mid-1930s, during the Japanese invasion of Manchukuo and its detachment from China.

Hunter covered the Second Italo-Abyssinian War between Italy and Ethiopia and took note of the psychological warfare methods used in those instances as well as during the preparations by Germany for World War II.

According to Hunter's 1958 testimony, he served for two years during WWII as a "propaganda specialist" for the OSS.

1944 Charles Douglas Jackson is appointed Deputy Chief at the Psychological Warfare Division at Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force (SHAEF).

After the war, he became Managing Director of Time-Life International.

When it became clear that Dwight D. Eisenhower stood a good chance of becoming president, the CIA arranged for Jackson to join his campaign.

This involved Jackson writing speeches for Eisenhower.

According to the Eisenhower Presidential Library files in Abilene, Kansas, Jackson's "area responsibility was loosely defined as international affairs, cold war planning, and psychological warfare.

His main function was the coordination of activities aimed at interpreting world situations to the best advantage of the United States and her allies and exploiting incidents which reflected negatively on the Soviet Union , Communist China and other enemies in the Cold War."

1945 OSS is abolished - remaining American 'information' agencies claim to cease covert action returning to information gathering and analysis.

Our Nazis: Gehlen Org

May 22, 1945 Operation Paperclip

While other Federal agencies are hunting down Nazi war criminals for arrest, the US intelligence community is smuggling them into America, unpunished, to use against the Soviets.

The most important of these is 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 him).

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.

American social 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.
