by Jeffrey Steinberg

LaRouche drew attention to the report by a retired CIA official in American Conservative magazine, that Dick Cheney ordered the Strategic Command to prepare contingency plans for a conventional and tactical nuclear strike against in Iran, in the event of a “new 9/11-style attack” on the United States—even if Iran had nothing to do with it. LaRouche further emphasized eyewitness reports of Cheney’s state of mind: a veritable “Hitler in the bunker,” lashing out at even Republican Senators who fail to follow his orders.

The Nazi Rat-Lines: Time To Rid America of the ‘Dulles Complex’

by William F. Wertz, Jr.

The very British, American, French, Swiss, and Benelux Synarchist financiers and cartel bosses who helped put Hitler in power, regrouped after World War II to support the Nazi banking and cartel elites. To this end, they jointly created the “rat-lines”—escape routes to whisk leading Nazis and their financial resources abroad, away from possible prosecution for war crimes. Key to the operation were Allen, John Foster, and Avery Dulles.


Victor Marchetti  

Marchetti served for several decades in the CIA, including as executive assistant to the Deputy Director. He is the author of The CIA and the Cult of Intelligence (1974), one of the most widely read and important books critiquing the intelligence community at that time.
