Department,

later

> Richard Armitage) from Defense, Dewey Clarridge and Charlie Allen from the

> CIA, Buck Revell and Wayne Gilbert from the FBI, Bob Oakley from State,

and

> Art Moreau (and later General Jack Moellering) from the Joint Chiefs of

Staff"

>

> INDEPENDENT COUNSEL'S REPORT ON IRAN CONTRA: Director Casey's unswerving

> support of President Reagan's contra policies and of the Iran arms sales

> encouraged some CIA officials to go beyond legal restrictions in both

> operations. Casey was instrumental in pairing North with [Richard] Secord

as

> a contra-support team when the Boland Amendment in October 1984 forced the

> CIA to refrain from direct or indirect aid. He also supported the

> North-Secord combination in the Iran arms sales, despite deep reservations

> prompted the chief of the CIA's Central American Task Force, Alan D.

Fiers,

> network, in violation of Boland restrictions. Casey's support for the NSC

to

> direct the Iran arms sales and to use arms dealer Manucher Ghorbanifar and

> Secord in the operation, forced the CIA's Directorate of Operations to

work

> with people it distrusted . . . Contrary to their testimony to the

> presidentially appointed Tower Commission and the Select Iran/contra

> Committees of Congress, Independent Counsel determined that Secretary

> Weinberger and his closest aides were consistently informed of proposed

and

> actual arms shipments to Iran during 1985 and 1986 . . . The notes

> demonstrated that Weinberger's early testimony that he had only vague and

> generalized information about Iran arms sales in 1985 was false, and that

he

> in fact had detailed information on the proposed arms sales and the actual

> deliveries. The notes also revealed that Gen. Colin Powell, Weinberger's

> senior military aide, and Richard L. Armitage, assistant secretary of

> defense for international security affairs, also had detailed knowledge of

> the 1985 shipments from Israeli stocks. Armitage and Powell had testified

> that they did not learn of the November 1985 HAWK missile shipment until

> 1986 . . . There was little evidence that Powell's early testimony

regarding

> the 1985 shipments and Weinberger's notes was willfully false. Powell

> cooperated with the various Iran/contra investigations and, when his

their

> US STIPULATION IN OLIVER NORTH TRIAL: Stipulation 61 - In late March 1985,

> North advised McFarlane that the initial deliveries of US arms from DoD to

> Honduras had gone well. The Honduran government had expressed its

gratitude

> through those who were supporting the Resistance. North proposed that

> McFarlane ask Secretary of Defense Weinberger to convey President Reagan's

> and McFarlane's thanks to DoD personnel who had effected the expedited

> procurement for the Honduran government, including Assistant Secretary of

> Defense Richard Armitage and General Gast . . . Stipulation 92 - In late

> March 1986, Elliott Abrams offered Honduran President Azcona immediate

> additional security assistance. LtCol North prepared a memorandum from

> Admiral Poindexter to President Reagan (with copies to Vice President Bush

> and Chief of Staff Regan) describing the results of Abrams' discussions

with

> Azcona . . . The Honduran army and navy specifically requested a

> sophisticated ground-to-air missile on the ground that the US had already

> furnished such weapons to the Resistance. The total cost for the items

> ultimately agreed upon was approximately 20 million. Among [sic] of the

> additional assistance to Honduras (in addition to President Reagan, Vice

> President Bush, Regan, and Admiral Poindexter) were LtGen Gast (Director

of

Assistant

> BO GRITZ: [Gritz, a colorful figure upon whom the character of Rambo was

> partly based, is the most decorated Green Beret commander of the Vietnam

> heinous than the Bataan death march . . . What I'm talking about is

> something we found out in Burma - May 1987. We found it out from a man

named

> Khun Sa. He is the recognized overlord of heroin in the world . . . On

video

> officials have been and are now his biggest customers, and have been for

the

> Cambodia through drugs. The money that would not be appropriated by a

> Cuba and Florida . . . Fifty-eight-thousand Americans were killed.

> Seventy-thousand became drug casualties. In the sixties and seventies you

> PROJECT PHOENIX: Several figures -- including Theodore Shackley, Thomas

> Clines and Richard Armitage - later associated with the Iran Contra

scandal

> were involved in Project Phoenix, which was financed in part with opium

> money. It has been alleged that the close relationship with SE Asian drug

> dealers continued after the US withdrawal from Vietnam, with Iran used as

a

> conduit for drugs and money. It has also been reported that, as a sequel

to

> Project Phoenix, an off-the-books assassination program was established in

> Iran.

>

> RALPH MCGEHEE: [Ralph McGehee is a former CIA officer who has exposed

> agency wrongdoing]The Phoenix or Phuong Hoang Operation was originally

> designed to "neutralize," that is assassinate or imprison, members of the

> civilian infrastructure of the [Vietnamese] National Liberation Front.

> Phoenix offices were set up from Saigon down to the district level. Their

> functions were to: (1) collate intelligence about the "Vietcong

> Infrastructure"; (2) interrogate civilians picked up at random by military

> units carrying out sweeps through villages; (3) "neutralize" targeted

> members of the NLF . . . The original Phoenix concept was quickly diluted,

> for two main reasons: (1) pressure from the top to fill numerical quotas

of

> person to be neutralized; (2) difficulties at the bottom of identifying

NLF

> civilian infrastructure, who were often indistinguishable from the general

> population, and the near impossibility of proving anyone membership in the

> NLF. The result was vastly to increase the numbers of innocent persons

> rounded up and imprisoned, indiscriminately murdered, and brutally

tortured

> in an effort to show results . . . Between 1968 and 1972 hundreds of

> thousands of Vietnamese civilians were rounded up and turned over to the

> Vietnamese police for questioning. Such interrogation has usually been

> marked by brutal torture.

> AFTER THE WAR: At the end of 1975, Armitage became as a special consultant

> to the Department of Defense, working out of Bangkok and dealing with

> unrepatriated prisoners and the missing in action. Armitage also started a

> mysterious business called the Far East Trading Company. Meanwhile, from

> 1976 to 1979 in Iran, Richard Secord was supervising the sale of US

military

> aircraft and weapons to Middle Eastern nations. During this same period,

> there are reports that Shackley, Clines, Secord, and Armitage set up

several

> curious corporations and subsidiaries around the world including Lake

> Resources, Stanford Technology Trading Group, Companie de Services

> Fiduciaria, CSF Investments and Udall Research Corporation.

> ARMITAGE AND POWELL: Powell and Armitage apparently met first in 1981, and

to

other,"

> according to a 1993 profile in USA Weekend. "They have become sounding

> boards for just about anything the other guy wants to discuss. Often they

> talk, if only briefly, two or three times a day." Newsweek reported that

> Armitage "may be Powell's closest friend."

>

> ARMITAGE AND ROSS PEROT: Perot and Armitage met in 1986, when Armitage was

> working on the POW-MIA issue. Perot, bothered by problems with the POW

> program as well as reports of Armitage's involvement with drug

traffickers,

> urged Armitage to resign. Armitage told the St. Louis Post Dispatch, "I

> found out he was putting his mouth on me, and I asked him to come to my

operation

Army

appointment

> Perot met with Armitage at the Pentagon and bluntly demanded that he

resign.

> Perot's stated reason was that Armitage had written, on Pentagon

stationery,

> a glowing character reference for a Vietnamese woman refugee, Nguyet Thi

> O'Rourke, who had been convicted of running a gambling operation in

> Virginia. Armitage later conceded that using Pentagon stationery had been

Institute,

Southeast

around

> But the lawsuit's allegations, many of which are inaccurate or based on

investigation.
