Kissinger Associates

(Excerpted from Chapter 14: Saddam’s Banker in Atlanta: Big Oil & Their Bankers…)

BNL’s Consulting Board for International Policy included Henry Kissinger and his boss David Rockefeller, now chairman of Rockefeller Group. [572]  Kissinger received $10,000 per meeting, serving on the board from 1985-1991.

In 1984 the US/Iraq Business Forum was established in Houston with a push from Kissinger Associates, a private consulting firm co-founded by CFR/TC insider Henry Kissinger, who in 1989 was named in to the Bush Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board; and former British Foreign Secretary Lord Carrington, former secretary general of NATO and president of both the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) and Bilderberger Group.  Carrington is on the board of Hollinger Corporation, chaired by Jerusalem Post and London Daily Telegraph Zionist owner Conrad Black.  Black- one of Canada’s wealthiest citizens- runs his financial empire from Toronto. He owns the Toronto Globe & Mail and frequents the Bronfman family’s Toronto Jockey Club. [573]  Black, a CIIA member and Bilderberger insider, was convicted in 2007 for fraud and obstruction of justice.

BNL was a Kissinger Associates client from 1986-1988, as was National Bank of Georgia, which BCCI agent Ghaith Pharaon helped Bert Lance slide out from under.  Kissinger is a good friend of Pharoan and an even better friend of his father, who was adviser to the House of Saud.  Several Kissinger Associates clients got BNL financing for Iraqi projects including Midland Bank (now HSBC), Chase Manhattan, Fiat, Asea Braun Boveri, Lummis Crest, Volvo and Hewlett Packard.  President Bush Sr. included two directors of Kissinger Associates in his cabinet- Undersecretary of State Lawrence Eagleburger and NSA Brent Scowcroft.  Both had worked on the BNL account, which was funneling taxpayer-guaranteed money to Saddam so that he could dole out contracts to US/Iraqi Business Forum members. [574]

The rotund Eagleburger, a long-time Kissinger deputy, was US Ambassador to Yugoslavia from 1977-1981.  He was president of Kissinger Associates from 1984-89.  He was on the board at Nazi/Pinochet backer ITT, Alcatel, Bethlehem Rebar, Mutual of New York, Josephson International and Best Mart.  In 1993 he joined the board of Dresser Industries, a subsidiary of Halliburton where Dick Cheney ran the show.  Prescott S. Bush Jr. (George Sr’s. brother) was an executive at Dresser. [575]

Scowcroft joined Kissinger Associates as vice-chairman in 1982.  He owned stock in many of the multinationals who were members of the US/Iraqi Business Forum including ITT, Westinghouse, GM, AT&T and Hewlett Packard.  These five companies were granted 100 of the 800 export licenses which the US government approved for sales to Iraq. [576]  Scowcroft was consultant to Lockheed, now the world’s largest defense contractor after its merger with Martin Marietta produced Lockheed Martin.

Scowcroft and Eagleburger led the charge in the Bush White House to sell arms to Iraq and any other country that would buy them.  Under pressure from the Aerospace Industries Association and the CEOs of Lockheed Martin, United Technologies, LTV, Raytheon, Grumman and ITT Defense, they lobbied to change the name of the State Department’s Office of Munitions Control to Center for Defense Trade.  US Embassies worldwide were now advised to play salesmen for US defense contractors.  United Technologies, LTV and Raytheon soon announced a $10 billion military modernization in Turkey compliments of the Istanbul embassy staff.

Chief economist and director of Kissinger Associates was Allen Stoga, also chief economist at the CIA favorite First Chicago Bank.  First Chicago’s Chairman was Robert Abboud, now at First City Bank of Houston and chairman of the US/Iraqi Business Forum.  The port of Houston, where the Texas oil mafia had just satisfied their S&L looting cravings, was now supplying the brunt of Saddam Hussein’s needs, including 20% of the US rice harvest.  Abboud was also president of Kuwaiti-owned Occidental Petroleum.  In the fall of 1989 Stoga met several times with BCCI officials, who had a year earlier been indicted in Tampa on money laundering charges.

In 1984 Abboud and fellow First Chicago cronies John Drick and Gaylord Freeman signed a letter to authors/investigators of the Priory of Sion- Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh and Henry Lincoln.  The letter bore the Prieure de Sion logo and a crest containing the letters ‘R’ and ‘C.’, possibly a Rosicrucian insignia.  The letter was also signed by Pierre Plantard, self-proclaimed Merovingan dynasty descendent and Priory Grand Master.  It warned legal action against anyone who would take or fake Priory documents.  Gaylord Freeman sat on the board of ARCO with contra ranch hand Robert O. Anderson and was an insider at the Shah-friendly Aspen Institute and the MacArthur Foundation.

Henry Kissinger was rewarded for his efforts in 1995 when Queen Elizabeth II bestowed upon him the title of Honorary Knight Commander of the Most Distinguished Order of St. Michael & St. George, the highest honor granted by the British House of Windsor to non-British citizens. [577]
