Did the USA fall out with Assad over heroin?

Reportedly Basil was killed because of his role in suppressing the Syrian-Lebanese drug trade in the Bekaa Valley. (Website)

 

‘CIA asset’ Monzer al Kassar at home

1. In the 1980’s, Syria reportedly had links to ‘the CIA’s trade in arms and heroin’.

According to “The Last Circle” , by Cherie Seymour – Chapter 8:

Syria’s Monzer Al Kassar, a friend of the Assad family, reportedly worked with the USA’s Colonel Oliver North.

Reportedly, Al Kassar sold heroin to the USA and some of the profits were used by North to buy arms for the fascist Nicaraguan Contras.

The US Tower Commission probe into Irangate revealed that Al Kassar had been paid $1.2 million by Oliver North’s coconspirator General Richard Secord to move weapons from Israel to the Contras.

In her book “October Surprise,” former Reagan White House aide Barbara Honegger alleged that Al Kassar’s heroin smuggling network in Italy was used to send NATO arms to Iran with the help of Italian intelligence officials linked to the Masonic lodge, P2.

Al Kassar was reported to hold large tracts of land in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley.

2. In 1988, the CIA allegedly brought down PanAm 103 over Lockerbie.

The CIA reportedly wanted to destroy Major Charles McKee and his team who had gathered evidence of CIA drug smuggling and who were flying to the USA to act as whistleblowers.

According to “The Last Circle” , by Cherie Seymour – Chapter 8:

Lester Coleman, a Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) officer worked with the secret unit, Middle East Collection 10 (MC10) in Cyprus.

Two senior MC10 members, Mathew Kevin Gannon and Major Charles Dennis McKee, were on PanAm flight 103 when it exploded; they had just returned from a mission in Beirut.

Coleman explained that the Drugs Enforcement Administration (DEA), with the narcotics squad of the Cypriot national police, the German BKA police and British customs, ran an operation through Cyprus and airports in Europe, including Frankfurt.

The operation involved delivering heroin from the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon to the United States; the operation was codenamed “Khourah.” Coleman maintained that Pan Am Flight 103 was being used by the DEA.


 

3. Reportedly, Lockerbie was about heroin.

According to “The Last Circle” , by Cherie Seymour – Chapter 8:

Pan Am hired the private investigative firm of Interfor to look into the bombing.

Interfor maintained that PanAm 103 was part of a heroin smuggling route run by a drug trafficking ring protected by the CIA.

Interfor claimed the ring was overseen by Monzer Al Kassar.

The CIA and DEA had apparently both instructed Germany’s internal intelligence agency, the BKA, to allow certain suitcases to pass uninspected onto US bound flights at the Frankfort airport, where Flight 103 originated.

A suitcase which was supposed to be full of the usual heroin was covertly substituted with a suitcase full of explosives.


 

4. Reportedly, the CIA interfered with the evidence in the Lockerbie case.

According to David Guyatt (LOCKERBIE – THE SYRIAN CONNECTION – Deep Black Lies):

Within hours of Pan Am 103 exploding over the small Scottish village, CIA agents were swarming over the wreckage…

Aboard the downed plane was a secret, five-man Defence Intelligence Agency ‘team’ headed by Major Charles ‘Tiny’ McKee.

A suitcase belonging to McKee was recovered and emptied before being returned to the site to be ‘found’ again.

Inside had been a large quantity of Heroin, some ‘sensitive’ documents, plus a large quantity of cash and travellers cheques.

These items were ‘purged’ from official records.

Incredibly, an unidentified body was also removed from the crash site.

No official explanation has been given for these extraordinary examples of evidence tampering.


5. In 1989, the drug smuggling continued.

In 1989, CNN aired a report that included clandestine video pictures of members of the Colombian drug cartel meeting with Syrian drug lords in Larnaca, Cyprus.

The Syrian identified in the video tapes was Raiss Assad the nephew of Syrian president, Hafaz Assad. (DEA: Syria a Major Player in Drug Trade)


6. In 1990, Syria gained its reward.

From “The Last Circle” , by Cherie Seymour aka Carol Marshall – Chapter 8, we learn:

Syria was part of George Bush’s coalition which toppled Saddam.

In 1990, the USA allowed a government backed by Syria to take power in Lebanon.

Under the agreement with the USA, Syria kept control of Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley famous for its production of heroin and other drugs.

7. The newspaper Scotland on Sunday reported 16/9/ 2001 that Osama bin Laden made his fortune in part by working with Jewish-Russian mafia operations in Qatar and Cyprus. (Cached)

From an article entitled Robert Gates, Lockerbie, October Surprise, Iran-Contra, we learn of the following allegation:

Reportedly, al Kassar would have known about Mohamed Atta ‘flying Lebanese heroin into Florida for Porter Goss’s 911 operation’.

Reportedly, tied to Porter Goss’ 911 training operation in Florida were the Muslim Brotherhood, and agents of the intelligence agencies of Saudi Arabia, Germany, Syria and Pakistan.

The Lockerbie Case: Megrahi says in a new book that he was framed

From the Scottish edition of The Sunday Times:

“The Libyan convicted of the Lockerbie bombing claims he will produce evidence that will prove he was framed for Britain’s worst terrorist atrocity.

“In a forthcoming book … Megrahi alleges that British and American authorities knew that a crucial piece of evidence linking Libya to the downing of Pan Am 103 was planted.

“Documents obtained by his defence team are said to reveal that a fragment of electronic timer – said to be part of the bomb – was subjected to forensic testing before Megrahi’s trial in 2000.

“The Libyan claims that the tests failed to detect explosive residues on the fragment but that this information was not revealed at his trial.

 

“Sources close to Megrahi believe evidence of such tests would severely undermine the safety of his conviction.

“At the Libyan’s trial … forensic scientists testified that the fragment was part of a circuit board used as a trigger for the bomb. They stated it had not been tested for explosive residues…

“This evidence … helped to convict Megrahi…

The Sunday Times has also seen unpublished British intelligence documents from 1989 revealing that the Scottish police were convinced that a barometric bomb – triggered by altitude, not an electronic timer – downed Pan Am 103.

“Megrahi has been working with a British journalist on a book, the publication of which is imminent.

“Sources close to the project said that in Megrahi: You Are My Jury, the Libyan reveals that forensic tests were conducted on the timer fragment.

“It suggests the fragment was not part of the Lockerbie bomb and adds weight to claims that it was ‘introduced’ later to bolster the case against Megrahi…

“The timer fragment became a key plank in the case against Megrahi…

“It was claimed that months after the December 21 bombing … in 1988, a tiny piece of circuit board was found in a piece of clothing about 25 miles away from Lockerbie. The prosecution … linked this fragment of circuit board, described as part of the bomb trigger, to Megrahi.
