Ronald Reagan, the Western Objectives Foundation & the Downing of KAL Flight 007

By Mae Brussell

(Hustler journal, February 1984) Edited by A. Constantine

In the aftermath of the Korean Air Strains catastrophe that shocked the world on September 1, 1983, the editors of the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner had a collection of nagging questions, outstanding among them the following:

Q: Is there cause to consider that Rep. Lawrence McDonald of Georgia, an admittedly ultra-right U.S. congressman touring on 007, might have been deliberately assassinated aboard the flight? A: “While the [U.S.] government has made no such charge, McDonald’s widow claims that her husband, the national chairman of the John Birch Society, was ‘murdered.’ She holds that it was no accident that ‘the leading anti-Communist in the American government’ had been on a plane that was ‘forced into Soviet territory’ and shot down.”
    One other query to be addressed is: Why would the Soviet Union wish to make a martyr of Larry McDonald? If the Russians are the specialists at terrorism they’re purported to be, it might appear obvious that they might find a neater approach to get rid of the congressman than chasing his airplane over Soviet territory for 2 1/2 hours. They might have easily blown him away anyplace in the world. Furthermore, it’s onerous to consider that KAL Flight 007 was pressured into Soviet airspace, as if an enormous mechanism had sucked McDonald toward his mortal enemy. During the unusual 2 half hours that 007 ventured as far as 226 miles inside Soviet airspace, the Russians have been testing new missiles instantly under. They didn’t need any more issues. And I doubt that McDonald, fanatic as he was, deserves the label of “leading anti-Communist in the American government.” He has pretty stiff competitors from A.G. “Fritz” Kraemer, Sven Kraemer, John Lenczowski, Paula Dobriansky, William Clark, Jeanne Kirkpatrick, William Casey, Henry Kissinger, Dr. Ernest Lefevre, William F. Buckley, James Buckley, Richard Pipes, Basic Daniel O. Graham and a forged of hundreds. An article that appeared immediately after the capturing down of 007 accused Secretary of the Navy John Lehman of duty for “the deaths of 269 over Sakhalin Island.” Lehman’s strategic design, referred to as “Horizontal Escalation” in defense circles, outlines a collection of provocations towards the USSR. Lehman: “He who gets the signal to fire first in the North Pacific will enjoy a tremendous tactical advantage. This region … is most probably where we shall witness confrontation with the Soviet Union.” Thus, while Europe and the U.S. divert the public with NATO missile debates, plans are formulated for a primary strike in the Pacific. South Korea, Japan and the U.S. are at collectively at work on these plans. Sending spy planes over the Soviet Union serves the objective of provocation. Five days after the 007 incident, former CIA spy Ralph McGehee informed a university viewers that the Korean airliner was certainly on a spy mission. He additionally believes that the Russians thought 007 was an RC-135 intelligence aircraft. It was Senator Jesse Helms (R-North Carolina) – another archconservative ideologue; anti-union, anti-government, anti-Communist and an opponent of a world treaty on genocide – who arranged McDonald’s invitation to attend the celebration commemorating the 30th anniversary of the official U.S. entry into the Korean Warfare. As an alternative of traveling together, nevertheless, Helms and McDonald arrived in Anchorage, Alaska – the first cease of the journey to South Korea – on separate planes. The fact that McDonald was the solely individual in the 36-member American delegation to fly alone seems strange. After refueling, the Boeing 747 carrying Helms arrived at its vacation spot safely. But McDonald – and his fellow passengers on Flight 007 – were not so fortunate. As depicted in the books by Ian Fleming, 007 was James Bond’s “license to kill.” In this case, who had the license to kill? Was it the CIA and its Korean counterpart, the KCIA? They have been shaped at roughly the similar time and work collectively intently. The fact that McDonald and Helms flew on separate planes brings up a number of more unanswered questions. Who sat next to McDonald? Korean Air Strains should have a boarding move for that passenger. If no one used the seat, and if McDonald was accompanied by others in the American delegation, why didn’t one of them occupy the seat? Where have been the employees or advisory members of McDonald’s Western Objectives Foundation, a knowledge financial institution in Alexandria, Virginia, that serves as a nationwide right-wing clearinghouse for unfavorable details about leftists? Why was McDonald left to die alone? Who truly gained by Flight 007’s violation of Soviet territory? Not the Russians. They have been in preparation for the subsequent week’s meeting in Madrid, Spain, between U.S. Secretary of State George Schultz and Soviet Overseas Minister Andrei Gromyko, additionally the resumption of arms-reduction talks and the annual United Nations meeting. An incident of any type would – and did – set world opinion towards them at a crucial time. On the different hand, the U.S. authorities benefited by gathering invaluable army details about Soviet radar and defensive capabilities in the hours preceding the crash. Other advantages to the State Department and Pentagon included favorable MX-missile and binary nerve-gas votes from a knee-jerk Congress. Clearly, Larry McDonald did not die at the arms of Soviet planners. An important rationalization for his demise pertains to current revelations about his clandestine activities. A previous relationship between McDonald and President Reagan started to surface before the crash. Illicit espionage concealed behind a cloak of righteous Americanism at any worth was about to be exposed. The media, together with many different institutions and individuals, had purposely withheld the darker aspect of Reagan’s years as California governor from the 1980 Presidential campaign. Now the dirty laundry of the past was beginning to leak out. Key backers, financiers and appointees of Ronald Reagan have all the time been involved in political spying – and worse. California was rife with intrigue. Nixon and Reagan have been from California. And California is where the bubble burst. The trail leading to the connection between Reagan and McDonald is lengthy and winding. But the information show collusion between informers hired by Reagan when he was governor and McDonald’s Western Objectives Basis. The methods – and even the individuals involved – have been the similar in both instances. The primary indication that one thing was even more rotten than standard in California came on August 15, 1980, when Warren Hinckle – the former editor of Ramparts journal – famous that the snooping of Jerry Ducote appeared to contain members of Ronald Reagan’s gubernatorial employees. (Ducote was a former sheriff’s deputy employed by Reagan’s backers to infiltrate suspected subversive groups.) “What is happening in Santa Clara County today is the germ of the biggest scandal of the next 1 1/2 years,” Hinckle stated. “People thought that with Watergate it was all over. But this is the next layer of Watergate.” On January four, 1983, almost 2 1/2 years after Hinckle’s prediction, Detective Jay Paul of the Los Angeles Police Department provided a weary staff of investigators with the connection between Larry McDonald and Ronald Reagan. That day marked the finish of McDonald’s usefulness to the bigger community he served. He had turn into a liability to some essential individuals. A carefully-constructed net of deceit was brought down by the large volumes of information illegally assembled on law-abiding residents by the L.A. Police Department’s Public Disorder Intelligence Division (PDID). The information have been ordered destroyed in 1975, nevertheless it was later found that LAPD officers stored the data-bank info. Enraged by this disobedience, the Los Angeles Police Commission formally requested the information. However by then, Lieutenant Thomas Scheidecker had stolen at the very least 10,000 pages of documents, and PDID Detective Jay Paul had moved an enormous batch of information to his storage in Long Seashore. Lawyer Ann Love, his wife, was paid $30,000 a yr to feed a classy $100,000 pc knowledge that had been ordered destroyed. Damaged Seals was a typical piece of Western Objectives ultra-con propaganda, an alarming “report on the attempts to destroy the foreign and domestic intelligence capabilities of the United States.” The foreword was written by Daniel O. Graham, former director of the DIA, who went on to chair the High Frontiers Foundation in help of Reagan’s Strategic Defense Initiative. The knowledge ultimately wound up in the pc of the Western Objectives Basis And lo and behold, the man who paid Ann Love was Consultant Larry McDonald, chairman of Western Objectives. Also caught up in the net was John Rees, an editor at the Western Objectives Basis, and a longtime associate of Jerry Ducote by method of their widespread employers and comparable methods of accumulating knowledge. Both acted as brokers provocateurs. “An agent provocateur is a police agent who is introduced into any political organization with instructions to foment discontent . . . or to take a case in order to give his employers the right to act against the organization in question,” in response to Colonel Victor Kaledin of Imperial Russian Army Intelligence. Ducote was employed by key Reagan supporters and the John Birch Society. Rees collaborated with the Birch Society and a number of different right-wing teams, feeding them info to harass and embarrass those that opposed their level of view. Reagan’s man, Ducote, and Larry McDonald’s crony, John Rees, labored collectively at the San Francisco-based Western Analysis, also called Analysis West. Ducote secluded himself behind unmarked doors, operating a blacklisting service for business. The results of his spying have been added to a repository of info used by Governor Reagan to display out potential state staff with leftist political tendencies contrary to his personal beliefs. At the similar time, pictures of rallies and demonstrations – along with copies of underground newspapers – have been provided to Western Analysis by agents of the Los Angeles Police Division. In flip, Western Research bought background info on staff and advised firms about potential risks. Research West, an incarnation, maintained shut ties with regulation enforcement and corporate knowledge banks, using spies to feed info to utility corporations anxious to determine anti-nuclear activists. Clearly, blacklisting didn’t end with the demise of Senator Joseph McCarthy. The witch hunt by no means ceased. Last January in Los Angeles, the American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit on behalf of 131 law-abiding teams and people who have been illegally spied upon. Among the defendants in this case have been 54 cops from the LAPD’s Public Dysfunction Intelligence Division. The regulation firm representing the defendants was Gibson, Dunn and Crutcher. Curiously enough, Lawyer Basic William French Smith was a companion in that firm. And none aside from President Ronald Reagan is a shopper of Gibson, Dunn and Crutcher in all private authorized issues. Time was operating out for Larry McDonald after a few years of stealing, bugging and compiling. He was about to be subpoenaed by a Los Angeles County grand jury. His testimony – notably the elements referring to the feeding of unlawful police intelligence information to his Long Seashore pc – might embarrass and even injury an ideal quantity of powerful individuals. ••• Several weeks after the downing of Flight 007, Soviet President Yuri Andropov blamed the United States for a “sophisticated provocation, masterminded by U.S. special services, an example of extreme adventurism in politics.” How might the United States have written such a script? Larry McDonald was going to embarrass President Reagan if too many of the documents from California have been uncovered. They shared widespread spies and customary enemies. So let’s assume that the CIA, FBI and all federal businesses that labored with McDonald – notably the Pentagon – needed him silenced instantly. At the similar time, as a result of McDonald was so violently anti-Communist, why not make the Soviets liable for his homicide? A New Proper martyr might be created in the wrestle towards communism. Keep in mind the Pueblo? The state of affairs may need continued in the following means: • There can be a celebration in South Korea early in September. McDonald had robust ties to Korean-born Reverend Sun Myung Moon, leader of the Unification Church (the Moonies) and the South Korean army. Organize for McDonald to attend that celebration in South Korea. (Dorothy Hunt, CIA officer and wife of Watergate defendant E. Howard Hunt, was blown up in a business airliner over Chicago, and no one seemed to care. Undoubtedly, her murder scared into silence the main witnesses who might have embarrassed President Nixon at the time he was paying them to “plead guilty” earlier than sinking his presidency. By the way, the espionage activities of each E. Howard Hunt and Congressman McDonald have been entangled with the Los Angeles Police Division.) • Send spy planes over the USSR constantly. The Soviet Union doesn’t recognize such flights violating its territory. By placing McDonald on a business airliner and timing its incursion inside Soviet airspace with spy-plane operations at the similar time, an assault by Soviet missiles can be assured. One of the many mysteries of Flight 007 is the complete lack of communication between its pilots and U.S., Korean and Japanese listening posts. This is called sustaining radio silence. Furthermore, 007 left Kennedy Airport in New York with a faulty radio and navigational system. When the pilot on the first leg of the flight disembarked in Anchorage, he assumed the aircraft’s malfunctioning elements can be repaired. But this didn’t happen. It’s common information to all pilots flying over Soviet territory that aircraft going past a certain point inside Russian borders can be pressured to land or shot down. If the CIA and the National Security Company needed Larry McDonald lifeless, thereby assuring a world incident, isolating the pilots from instructions or warnings can be important. The best way to perform that is both to tamper with radio transmissions or the pilots’ minds – or each. Chun Byung In, the pilot in command of 007, held the rank of colonel in the South Korean Air Pressure. He was thought-about reliable sufficient to have flown the Korean president to the U.S. in 1982 and fly abroad routes linking Southeast Asia to the Center East, Paris to Los Angeles, and New York to Seoul. The co-pilot on 007 was Lieutenant Colonel Sohn Dong Hui. In accordance with news stories, Chun boasted to shut buddies that he was finishing up particular duties for American intelligence, and he even showed them some of the aircraft’s spying gear or surveying Soviet army installations. Spying was typically the covert mission of regularly-scheduled business flights that started in New York City and led to Seoul. After the 007 disaster, it was reported that Koreans typically flew over Soviet airspace to scale back gasoline bills. But spy cameras with the potential to photograph Soviet army bases are a extra believable cause for Korean jets dropping their method so typically. Studies indicate that Korean Air Strains concluded a secret settlement with the CIA in the early 1970s to carry out intelligence surveys of Soviet territory. These studies additional recommend that when Flight 007 was shot down, the U.S. intelligence mission utilized a reconnaissance satellite programmed to move overhead at the similar time. This allowed the U.S. to report electronic visitors denoting the whereabouts of Soviet air-defense techniques as they have been activated to satisfy a presumed menace. After triggering the radar warning of a menace to the USSR, the pilot of a U.S. RC-135 reconnaissance aircraft used maneuvers typical of American spy planes to frustrate Soviet air defenses. Ultimately, he dove under the radar cowl off the Kamchatka Peninsula to distract air-defense crews and allow Flight 007 to enter Soviet airspace undetected. Meanwhile, trying to dodge Soviet fighter planes 226 miles inside the USSR, pilot Chun requested permission to raise to 35,000 ft. Moments later, he shouted, “Rapid … a rapid decompression.” Flight 007 was hit by a missile. Chun’s final phrases –”one-zero, one-zero-delta”– left everybody confused, as did the aircraft’s ultimate radio transmissions. Neither Matsumi Suzuki, head of Japan’s Sound Analysis Institute, nor the Japanese broadcast community NHK might explain what “delta” meant. Was that Chun’s “Rosebud”? Early stories following the tragedy, noting the obvious loss of contact with 007’s pilots, instructed that the aircraft had been hijacked. A second report stated that the two pilots and the navigator might have been asleep – a dubious principle considering the crew’s unblemished document. A more probably risk is that the crew had been the victim of hypnosis and mind control – receiving directions prematurely, before they left Anchorage, that would not be picked up and recorded later. If this seems farfetched, think about the experience of Candy Jones – a well-known model and radio character – who described in her biography how the CIA programmed her mind for spying and activities associated to espionage. A single telephone name from an unseen individual would have been enough to implement beforehand implanted instructions to kill herself. These revelations got here to mild at the peak of the Watergate scandal, along with proof that she had beforehand finished errands for the CIA. Only the intervention of her husband saved Candy Jones from certain dying. The difficulty of 007’s defective navigational system came beneath close scrutiny following the disaster. Studies filed with NASA revealed that at the least 25 occasions during the previous five years, U.S. airline pilots relying on the similar navigational gear used by 007 had strayed off target – as soon as as much as 250 miles. Cited among the cause have been pc malfunctions and human errors. “It’s easy to become complacent [on long flights],” stated Pan American World Airways pilot Thomas Foxworth. “It’s a human failing. The record is replete with numerous incidents of a guy just falling asleep.” What if the “human failing” cited by Foxworth was truly mind-controlled planning? Two of the 007 crew may need been asleep – and even lifeless. But the one who cried “delta” was obviously awake till the finish. His response to what was going to happen, given his years of experience and expertise, was that of a programmed zombie instructed to fly constantly – disregarding any exterior sights or sounds on the flight gear. As long ago as November 1974, the Subcommittee on Constitutional Rights – headed by then-Senator Sam Ervin of North Carolina – issued a 645-page report titled, Individual Rights and the Federal Position in Conduct Modification, which plotted the superior state of CIA thoughts work and testing. Three years later, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the Sub-committee on Health and Scientific Research revealed one other report, Undertaking Mkultra: The CIA’s Program in Conduct Modification. The upshot of these studies is that the Pentagon had the capability, if it so desired, to hyperlink mind management with satellite tv for pc protection methods. And a logical use of mind control, of course, can be to program a pilot – maybe even turning a traditional flight right into a kamikaze mission. Dr. Jose Delgado, the father of military-and-defense thoughts experimentation who labored with the CIA and Navy Intelligence, perfected such procedures as early as 1971. In a single instance, he surgically implanted a receiver in the brain of a Spanish preventing bull. Later in a Madrid area, when a tiny radio-controlled electrode delivered a minute surge of current to the enraged beast’s thoughts, the bull braked to an abrupt halt. Delgado also pioneered a way of capturing temper medicine into the brain, calming the subject by a distant pc that sensed oncoming nervousness, melancholy or rage, and flashed again inhibitor alerts by radio. “The [programmed] individual may think that the most important fact of reality is his own existence,” Delgado wrote. “But that is only his personal point of view, a relative frame of reference which is not shared by the rest of the living world.” The justification for perfecting bodily management of the thoughts was to allow outdoors forces to find out learn how to use a person’s physique by activating his mind and directing it past the topic’s management – in spite of any acutely aware efforts he may make. KAL Flight 007 was outfitted with the latest navigational know-how. Three computer-driven, inertial-navigational methods put in a yr earlier informed the airplane seven occasions per second where it is purported to go . Only the following parts might have coordinated the demise of Representative Larry McDonald with the Soviet missile response: (1) human elements; (2) altered devices in New York City or Anchorage; or (three) mind control over the Korean Air Drive pilots. ••• Exactly who was Larry McDonald, the strange and sophisticated particular person who wore so many robes? At first he was a physician specializing in urology who prescribed the discredited drug laetrile to cancer sufferers. He was also a person who concealed the ownership of 200 weapons. In 1974, he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, later chairman of both the tax-free Western Objectives Basis and the John Birch Society. The easiest way to describe most individuals is to know who their heroes are. McDonald reportedly stored two pictures on the walls of his Congressional office that give some clues to his psychological state. One picture was of Senator Joseph McCarthy. The opposite was of Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet. Senator McCarthy began his Senate career after World Struggle II with monetary help from two recognized Nazi sympathizers in Wisconsin – Frank Seusenbrenner and Walter Harnischfeger. Fred J. Prepare dinner’s The Nightmare Decade details the pro-Nazi backers of McCarthy and how the senator knew of their “passionate ultra-rightism and admiration for Hitler.” Harnischfeger’s nephew, in truth, typically displayed an autographed copy of Hitler’s Mein Kampf. He additionally flaunted a watch-chain swastika. In December 1946, 43 of Hitler’s prime army officers acquired dying sentences or long prison terms at the Dachau Trials for the bloody bloodbath of American soldiers at Malmedy, France. One of McCarthy’s main aims as he entered the Senate was to facilitate their release. By 1949, because of Congressional hearings, he directed another maneuvering. McCarthy’s efforts paid off. The 43 Nazis have been freed. When McCarthy carried out his Home Un-American Actions Committee (HUAC) hearings in 1953 and collected knowledge on law-abiding residents for future fascist purposes, most of his info got here from mixed United States intelligence and Nazi warfare criminals. He additionally drew upon the in depth information of a spy community generally known as ODDESSA, an association of former SS officers shaped between 1943 and 1945, when it turned obvious the Third Reich couldn’t win the warfare towards the Soviet Union. After McCarthy died in 1957, it’s affordable to imagine that Larry McDonaid – by approach of Louise Rees – took over the large computerized information that now include hundreds of thousands of names worldwide. Louise Rees, the spouse of John Rees, an editor at McDonald’s Western Objectives Basis, labored for McCarthy and Roy M. Cohn, counsel for the senator’s 1953 Permanent Investigations Subcommittee of the Government Operations Committee. Western Objectives lists Roy M. Cohn, now a New York lawyer, on its advisory board. And when McDonald went to Washington as a representative from Georgia in 1974, Louise Rees was his paid employees aide. McDonald’s admiration for his other main hero, Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet, could be defined partially by the proven fact that both of their careers benefited from the help of international fascist organizations. And there’s proof that Nazis in Chile funded McDonald’s Congressional campaigns since 1974, at Pinochet’s path – just as Nazis have been the supply of funds for McCarthy in Wisconsin. Paradoxically, the very night time that McDonald was killed, Pinochet, his CIA-supported hero – was taunted by rioters in Chile. The Chilean individuals also want their nightmare decade to finish. Pinochet is chargeable for DINA, Nazi-like death-squad terrorist groups which might be an arm of the Chilean police, crucial to take care of his repressive regime. Without DINA’s strategies of worry and torture, the U.S. puppet authorities in Chile would not last one other day. Pinochet additionally does nothing to intrude with Colonia Dignidad, a haven for Nazi struggle criminals situated on the border between Argentina and Chile. Colonia Dignidad serves as a torture middle the place dissenters who oppose Pinochet are mutilated and fed to canine whereas still alive. Armed guards discourage snoopers. Amnesty Worldwide is presently investigating this deplorable state of affairs. Larry McDonald’s unsavory Chilean connection was additional exposed when Robert Byron Watson introduced attorneys from the House Choose Committee on Assassinations with an affidavit reportedly detailing McDonald’s dealings with Fuad Habash Ansare in Santiago de Chile; Watson claimed that Fuad Habash is the brother of Arab terrorist leader Dr. George Habash of the Fashionable Entrance for the Liberation of Palestine. This group is claimed to work with our CIA to rearrange Arab terrorist murders round the globe. ••• Larry McDonald’s Western Objectives Basis, another sinister organization, was shaped in 1979. Members of its advisory board are listed in brochures and newspaper ads, and embrace the following: Jean Ashbrook, Mrs. Walter Brennan, Taylor Caldwell, Roy M. Cohn, Congressman Philip M. Crane (R-Illinois), Common Raymond Davis, Henry Hazlitt, Dr. Mildred F. Jefferson, Dr. Anthony Kubek, Robert Milliken, Admiral Thomas H. Moorer, E. A. Morris, Vice-Admiral Lloyd M. Mustin, Mrs. John C. Newington, Common George S. Patton III, Dr. Hans Sennholz, Basic John Singlaub, Dan Smoot, Robert Stoddard, Congressman Bob Stump (D-Arizona), Mrs. Helen Marie Taylor, Dr. Edward Teller, Common Lewis Walt and Dr. Eugene Wigner. The chief employees of Western Objectives consists of Linda Guell, director; John Rees, editor; and Julia Ferguson, analysis affiliate. Two members of Western Objectives bear particular mention. In accordance with Seymour Hersh’s current guide The Worth of Power in the Nixon White House, Admiral Thomas Moorer masterminded the surreptitious removing of delicate knowledge from President Nixon’s office. Working via Yeoman Charles Radford, Moorer stole papers clearly marked “President’s Eyes Only” and had them delivered to the Pentagon. His reward for stealing these top-secret paperwork was a promotion to the prestigious Joint Chiefs of Employees. Merry Christmas, Cambodia! Bypassing each member of Congress, Henry Kissinger and Admiral Moorer carried out their very own personal warfare towards that country – one that has not fought the United States at any time – gleefully choosing bombing targets that value the lives of tens of millions of harmless individuals. It later developed that Los Angeles Police Division information on two million Californians have been assessed by Moorer’s and McDonald’s Western Objectives pc. So it involves cross that the criminals hold monitor of the innocent. Details about you is probably already filed and computerized of their secret knowledge banks. Would you trust individuals like this together with your good identify? A second Western Objectives advisory board member value noting is Edward Teller, Hungarian-born father of the hydrogen bomb. The same day that McDonald made the entrance page of the Washington Submit – when Western Objectives was ordered to reply the stolen-documents subpoena in Los Angeles – Teller was attending a European seminar on nuclear warfare essential to America’s future overseas policy. ••• There isn’t any starting or end to the Larry McDonald tragedy. His right-wing fanaticism drew him to the crueler aspect of blackmailers, burglars, assassins, terrorists, wiretappers, and other people dedicated to waging a future warfare with the Soviet Union. And there he was, last August 31 and September 1, apparently sitting on their lonesome on Flight 007. If that was by Soviet design, then all in his entourage have been communists who knew prematurely. However since the American delegation was screened and cleared for travel with a congressman, then the CIA and U.S. brokers knew one thing they wouldn’t share with him – even to save lots of his life. So what’s all of it about, Alfie?
