Black Eagle Trust Fund
The 9/11 Attacks and the Black Eagle Trust Fund
"On that fateful day, the Securities and Exchange Commission declared a national emergency, and for the first time in U.S. history, invoked its emergency powers under Securities Exchange Act Section 12(k) easing regulatory restrictions for clearing and settling security trades for the next 15 days. These changes would allow an estimated $240 billion in covert government securities to be cleared upon maturity without the standard regulatory controls around identification of ownership."
Few people are aware of the huge Black Eagle Trust fund, let alone its critical relation to the 9/11 attacks. A brilliant summary of excellent information regarding this covert fund compiled by meticulous researcher E.P. Heidner ties together many previously unexplained threads in the 9/11 mystery in ways that are most compelling. Heidner presents volumes of solid evidence to support his thesis that one of the main reasons for the attacks was to cover up the laundering of over $200 billion in bonds from this secretive fund that were to come due the day after 9/11.
Serious 9/11 researchers will likely be most grateful for the revealing connections in this careful research made between seemingly unconnected parts of the 9/11 story and the many people and organizations involved. Those less familiar with the 9/11 cover-up will almost certainly appreciate the broad overview given and the hidden history behind it all. If we follow the money, a lot of unexplained things begin to make sense.

Collateral Damage: U.S. Covert Operations and the Terrorist Attacks on 9/11
The September 11th attacks were likely meant as a cover-up for financial crimes being investigated by the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), whose offices in the Pentagon were destroyed on September 11th. The attacks ... were intended to cover-up the clearing of $240 billion dollars in securities covertly created in September 1991 to fund a covert economic war against the Soviet Union, during which unknown western investors bought up much of the Soviet industry, with a focus on oil and gas.
The 9/11 attacks also served to derail multiple Federal investigations of crimes associated with the 1991 covert operation. Hundreds of billions of dollars of government securities had to be destroyed. A critical mass of brokers from the major government security brokerages in the Twin Towers had to be eliminated to create chaos in the government securities market. A situation needed to be created wherein $240 billion dollars of covert securities could be electronically cleared without anyone asking questions which happened when the Federal Reserve declared an emergency and invoked its emergency powers that very afternoon.
There were three major securities brokers in the World Trade Center: Cantor Fitzgerald, Eurobrokers and Garbon Inter Capital. Cantor Fitzgerald was the largest securities dealer in the US  and arguably the primary target. 41% of the fatalities in the Twin Towers came from Cantor Fitzgerald and Eurobrokers. 24% of the 125 fatalities in the Pentagon were from the Naval Command Center that housed the Office of Naval Intelligence. 29 of 30 Office of Naval Intelligence employees died. The Naval Command Center had been moved into that newly opened section of the Pentagon only a month earlier. And in the vaults beneath the World Trade Center Towers, any certificates for bonds were destroyed.
On that fateful day, the Securities and Exchange Commission declared a national emergency, and for the first time in U.S. history, invoked its emergency powers under Securities Exchange Act Section 12(k) easing regulatory restrictions for clearing and settling security trades for the next 15 days. These changes would allow an estimated $240 billion in covert government securities to be cleared upon maturity without the standard regulatory controls around identification of ownership.

The Origins of the World Trade Center Attack
Emboldened by the lack of consequences for subverting the U.S. constitution and breaking international law during the Iran-Contra scandal of the 1980s, a Bush administration group known as the Vulcans planned a bigger drive to crush Communism once and for all. They waged war against the Soviet Union and Iraq under George H.W. Bush, and against Iraq and Afghanistan under George W. Bush. Belonging to this group were Dick Cheney, Don Rumsfeld, Colin Powell, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Armitage, and Condoleezza Rice.
The Vulcans drive to bring an end to the Cold War was fueled by a covert war chest invisible to congressional oversight. This war chest would be known by several names: Black Eagle Trust, the Marcos gold, Yamashitas Gold, the Golden Lily Treasure, the Durham Trust or Project Hammer. The program also seems to have lined the pockets of the individuals that executed this policy. This was done to the tune of a staggering $240 billion dollars in covert and allegedly illegal bonds, which appear to have been replaced with Treasury notes backed by U.S. taxpayers in the aftermath of September 11.
The covert securities used to accomplish the national security objective of ending the Cold War ended up in the vaults of the brokers in the World Trade Center, and were destroyed on September 11, 2001. They came due for settlement and clearing on September 12. The federal Agency investigating these bonds The Office of Naval Intelligence was in the section of the Pentagon that was destroyed on 9/11.
To this key group of senior National Security officials called the Vulcans, who had participated in the victory of the economic cold war in 1991, the WTC, the Pentagon, the four airliners and their occupants would became collateral damage in the ending of the Cold War. Their deaths were required to hide the existence of the Black Eagle Trust, and the covert activities it had funded for over 50 years. The destruction of these lives and buildings constituted a cover-up of continued lawlessness by a fraternity or brotherhood of businessmen and criminals often referred to as the Enterprise in the 1980s, though it has remained in the shadows since.
Numerous sources have documented that at the end of WWII, the treasury of the Japanese Empire was discovered in the Philippines by a staff member of General Charles Willoughby,[Edward Lansdale], who was General MacArthurs chief of Intelligence. Then known as the Golden Lily Treasure, this mass of wealth had been accumulated by the Japanese through over fifty years of pillaging by its army in Southeast Asia and China. It was deposited in the Philippines due to the U.S. submarine blockade of Japan. Reports vary, but documents in the public domain suggest the recovered treasure was in excess of 280,000 metric tonnes of gold, not including jewels and diamonds. After the War [Lansdale] tortured Major Kojima Kashii General Yamashita Tomoyukis driver until he revealed and created a map of the gold sites.
Lansdale briefed Assistant Secretary of War John J. McCloy about the findings, and a U.S. Cabinet level decision was made to confiscate the gold and cover-up its discovery. The gold would be added to the Black Eagle Trust fund. It was McCloy, along with Secretary of the Navy Robert B. Anderson and Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson who created the Black Eagle Trust.
John McCloy, who had shared a box at the 1936 Olympics with Adolph Hitler, went on to become President of the World Bank. Robert Anderson would go on to operate the Commercial Exchange Bank in the British West Indies, be convicted of running illegal banking operations and tax evasion, and be sentenced to prison. A fourth member of that group William Wild Bill Donovan would go on to found the CIA and distribute the gold to key banks represented by his staffers.

The 9/11 Attacks and the Black Eagle Trust Fund
#251705 Jan 16, 2013
German computer experts are working around the clock to unlock the truth behind an unexplained surge in financial transactions made just before two hijacked planes crashed into New York's World Trade Center Sept. 11.
Were criminals responsible for the sharp rise in credit card transactions that moved through some computer systems at the center shortly before the planes hit the twin towers? Or was it coincidence that unusually large sums of money, perhaps more than $100 million, were rushed through the computers as the disaster unfolded?
A world leader in retrieving data, German-based firm Convar is trying to answer those questions and help credit card companies, telecommunications firms and accountants in New York recover records from computer hard drives that have been partially damaged by fire, water or fine dust.
Using a pioneering laser scanning technology to find data on damaged computer hard drives and main frames found in the rubble of the World Trade Center and other nearby collapsed buildings, Convar has recovered information from 32 computers that support assumptions of dirty doomsday dealings.
"The suspicion is that inside information about the attack was used to send financial transaction commands and authorizations in the belief that amid all the chaos the criminals would have, at the very least, a good head start," said Convar director Peter Henschel.
"Of course it is also possible that there were perfectly legitimate reasons for the unusual rise in business volume," he told Reuters in an interview.
PROFITING FROM DISASTER?
"It could turn out that Americans went on an absolute shopping binge on that Tuesday morning. But at this point there are many transactions that cannot be accounted for,'' Henschel said.
"Not only the volume but the size of the transactions was far higher than usual for a day like that. There is a suspicion that these were possibly planned to take advantage of the chaos.''
Nearly 3,300 people were killed in the attacks that destroyed the World Trade Center.

After a leak by Iranian Mehdi Hashemi, the Lebanese magazine Ash-Shiraa exposed the arrangement on November 3, 1986. This was the first public reporting of the weapons-for-hostages deal. The operation was discovered only after an airlift of guns was downed over Nicaragua. Eugene Hasenfus, who was captured by Nicaraguan authorities, initially alleged in a press conference on Nicaraguan soil that two of his coworkers, Max Gomez and Ramon Medina, worked for the Central Intelligence Agency. He later said he did not know whether they did or not. The Iranian government confirmed the Ash-Shiraa story, and ten days after the story was first published, President Reagan appeared on national television from the Oval Office on November 13 stating:
"My purpose was... to send a signal that the United States was prepared to replace the animosity between [the U.S. and Iran] with a new relationship... At the same time we undertook this initiative, we made clear that Iran must oppose all forms of international terrorism as a condition of progress in our relationship. The most significant step which Iran could take, we indicated, would be to use its influence in Lebanon to secure the release of all hostages held there."
The scandal was compounded when Oliver North destroyed or hid pertinent documents between November 21 and November 25, 1986. During North's trial in 1989, his secretary, Fawn Hall, testified extensively about helping North alter, shred, and remove official United States National Security Council (NSC) documents from the White House. According to the New York Times, enough documents were put into a government shredder to jam it. North's explanation for destroying some documents was to protect the lives of individuals involved in Iran and Contra operations. It was not until years after the trial that North's notebooks were made public, and only after the National Security Archive and Public Citizen sued the Office of the Independent Counsel under the Freedom of Information Act.

The Treasure of Japanese Criminals
Golden Lily Operation
by Denis Boneau
#251708 Jan 16, 2013
Early that October, Kojima broke and led Lansdale and Santy to more than a dozen Golden Lily treasure vaults in the rugged country north of Manila. What they found astounded everyone from General Douglas MacArthur all the way up to the White House. After discussions with his cabinet, President Harry Truman decided to keep the recovery a state secret.
Santy's ensuing recoveries greatly altered America's leverage during the Cold War. According to senior US government officials and high-ranking US Army officers, the Truman administration set this treasure aside along with Axis loot recovered in Europe, as a secret political action fund to fight communism in the Cold War.
Crudely put, it would be used to bribe statesmen and military officers, and to buy elections for anti-communist political parties. The idea for a global political action fund based on war loot had originated with US secretary of war, Henry Stimson. During the war, Stimson had a brain-trust thinking hard about recovered Axis plunder, and how it should be handled after the war. Their solution was to set up what is informally called the ''Black Eagle Trust'', after the black eagle emblem of Hitler's Reichsbank in Berlin.
The Black Eagle Trust was first discussed in secret during July 1944, when 44 nations met at Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, to plan the post-war economy. This was confirmed to us by a number of high-level sources, including former CIA deputy director Ray Cline, who knew about Santy's recoveries in 1945, and continued to be involved in attempts in the 1980s and 1990s to hide blocks of Japanese war loot still said to be in the vaults of banks in New York.
In November 1945, General MacArthur strolled down row after row of gold bars stacked two metres tall during a tour of vaults opened by Santy. >From what was seen in these vaults alone, it was evident that over a period of years Japan had looted billions of dollars in treasure from all over Asia.Much of this plunder had reached Japan overland earlier, from China through Korea, but the rest was hidden in the Philippines, unable to be shipped to Japan by sea because of the successful US submarine blockade.
According to Ray Cline and others, between 1945 and 1947 the gold bullion recovered by Santy and Lansdale was moved discreetly to 172 accounts at banks in 42 countries.
There were important reasons for all this secrecy. If the recovery of this huge mass of stolen gold was known only to a trusted few, the countries and individuals that had been plundered could not lay claim to it. Truman recognised that the very existence of so much black gold, if it became public knowledge, would cause the metal's fixed price to collapse. But as long as the gold was kept hidden, prices could be maintained and currencies pegged to gold would be stable. Meanwhile, the black gold would serve as a reserve asset, bolstering the prime banks in each country, and strengthening the anti-communist governments of those nations.
To hide the existence of all this treasure, Washington had to tell a number of lies. Especially lies about Japan, which had stolen most of the gold. America wanted Japan to become its anti-communist bastion in Asia, where the mainland was being overrun by communists. If American conservatives and Japanese conservatives were to ally effectively against communism, they had to begin by enlarging their financial resources for the Cold War.
Above all, the source of much of this hidden wealth must never be acknowledged. Washington had to insist, starting in 1945, that Japan never stole anything, and was flat broke and bankrupt when the war ended. Here was the beginning of many terrible secrets.

Not much is known else about Shattuck's career before joining Alex. Brown & Sons at its San Francisco office, where he played a role in arranging funding for various high-tech clients, and public offerings for companies as Microsoft and America Online. By 1991 he became president and chief operating officer at Alex. Brown, second to future Central Intelligence Agency Executive Director A. B. "Buzzy" Krongard.

Adnan Khashoggi (Arabic: عد 06;ان خا 88;قج& #1610;‎, IPA:[ʕædˈnæ ːn xæːˈ@ 3;uqdʒiː]; born 25 July 1935) is a Saudi Arabian arms-dealer and businessman. He is also noted for his engagements with high society in both the Western and Arabic-speaking worlds, and for his involvement in the IranContra and Lockheed bribery scandals. At a peak net worth of up to $4 billion USD in the early 1980s, he was considered one of the richest men in the world.IranContra affairHe was implicated in the IranContra affair as a key middleman in the arms-for-hostages exchange along with Iranian arms dealer Manucher Ghorbanifar and, in a complex series of events, was found to have borrowed money for these arms purchases from the now-bankrupt financial institution the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) with Saudi and US backing. In 1988, Khashoggi was arrested in Switzerland, accused of concealing funds, held for three months and then extradited to the United States where he was released on bail and subsequently acquitted. In 1990, a United States federal jury in Manhattan acquitted Khashoggi and Imelda Marcos, widow of the exiled Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos, of racketeering and fraud.

BCCI's founder, Agha Hasan Abedi, started the bank in 1972. Abedi, a prolific banker, had previously set up the United Bank of Pakistan in 1959. Preceding the nationalization of United Bank in 1974 he sought to create a new supranational banking entity. Abedi was succeeded by Swaleh Naqvi as the bank's chief who, in the aftermath following controversy over BCCI, was replaced by Zafar Iqbal Chaudhry in the late 1990s. BCCI was created with capital from Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the ruler of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates and Bank of America (25%).
BCCI expanded rapidly in the 1970s, pursuing long-term asset growth over profits, seeking high net-worth individuals and regular large deposits. The company itself divided into BCCI Holdings with the bank under that splitting into BCCI SA (Luxembourg) and BCCI Overseas (Grand Cayman). BCCI also acquired parallel banks through acquisitions: buying the Banque de Commerce et Placements (BCP) of Geneva in 1976, and creating KIFCO (Kuwait International Finance Company), Credit & Finance Corporation Ltd, and a series of Cayman-based companies held together as ICIC (International Credit and Investment Company Overseas, International Credit and Commerce [Overseas], etc.). Overall, BCCI expanded from 19 branches in five countries in 1973 to 27 branches in 1974, to 108 branches in 1976, with assets growing from $200 million to $1.6 billion. This growth caused extensive underlying capital problems. The Guardian alleged that BCCI was using cash from deposits to fund operating expenses, rather than making investments. Investigative journalist and author Joseph J. Trento has argued that the bank's transformation was guided by the head of Saudi intelligence with a view to enabling it to finance covert intelligence operations at a time, in the aftermath of Watergate, when the American intelligence agencies were defending themselves from investigations by domestic authorities.

In March 1974, anti-Castro Cuban Luis Posada Carriles started his own private security agency and most likely a CIA or Shadow CIA front company probably connected with South American dictators' death squads, Operation Condor. In December 1974, anti-Castro Cuban who were CIA contract agents/soldiers, Orlando Bosch, Guillermo Novo, and Dionisio Suarez travelled to Santiago, Chile and offered their terrorist services to General Pinochet.
In a June 29, 1976, an FBI report on Orlando Bosch's group attempted to kidnap the Cuban ambassador to Mexico; one of his aides was shot and killed.
CIA officer Ted Shackley used the anti-Castro Cuban's in Chile to help overthrow the government. Shackley had been in charge of the following named anti-Castro Cubans before and after the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba and several of them followed him to Laos.
CIA case officer Robert Medell was working undercover for the DEA's Bureau of Narcotics Covert Intelligence Network (BUNCIN). He hired many agents from Manuel Artime's anti-Castro organization, Artime's three principle deputies Felix Rodriquez, Chi Chi Quintero, and Ricardo Chavez. Under cover of BUNCIN counter-narcotics mission, CIA officer Lou Conein and Nestor Sanchez (the case officer for a Castro military officer Rolando Cubela - AM/LASH) used their exile Cuban assets to assassinate and kidnap people in Colombia and Mexico for the CIA or shadow CIA. CIA officer Nestor Sanchez was in charge of "Cuban Group."
Robert Medell also hired the Villaverde brothers which financed their operations throughout the Caribbean, Latin America, and Mexico largely through drug smuggling. Villaverde brothers helped set up the terrorist organization United Revolutionary Organizations (CORU) in Mexico a few years later. CORU was a group founded by anti-Castro Cubans Orlando Bosch, Luis Posada Carriles, Guillermo Novo Sampoll and Gaspar Jiménez Escobedo.
A declassified FBI report confirms a meeting between these anti-Castro CIA contact agents and Pinochet on March 17, 1975, in which Pinochet offered them financial assistance to help create a unified fascist international. The South American/Chile's death squad wing of this was called Operation Condor.
In the 1980s, the terrorist Orlando Bosch was involved in Vice Pres. Bush's White House operation attempting to overthrow the incumbent government of Nicaragua via supporting the Contras.

In November 2000 after being arrested in Panama with a carload of dynamite and plastic explosives, Luis Posada, Gaspar Jimenez Escobedo, Guillermo Novo Sampoll and Pedro Remon Rodriguez, were convicted of attempting to assassinate President Fidel Castro at the University of Panama. These are the same guys who were assassinating people during the 1980s with CONDOR death squads of South American dictators.
They sentenced to 8-9 years in jail, but they were pardoned four months later by Panama's President Mireya Moscoso. These co-conspirators, all of whom are US citizens, returned to their homes in Miami just prior to the November 2004 elections. Was this done to help get AWOL Bush elected in the Cuban communities of Florida? You bet.
In 2005, Luis Posada was questioned by US immigration after being caught trying to sneak into the US. In 2009, he was indicted for 11-courts of perjury for lying to the immigration investigator about his past terrorism. On April 8, 2011, an El Paso, TX jury acquitted him. The AWOL Bush administration dragged its feet in prosecuting Posada for four years while Posada walked about Florida a free man. This is called being an accessory after the fact in my opinion and was used to keep him from talking about Bush Sr. connection to the assassination of JFK.
Now I am going to talk about the private citizens who helped fund the above operations against Castro. Daniel Hopsicker also takes the view that Operation 40 involved private funding. In the book, Barry and the Boys: The CIA, the Mob and America's Secret History, he claims that Richard Nixon had established Operation 40 as a result of pressure from American corporations which had suffered at the hands of Fidel Castro.
A strong opponent of Fidel Castro, Haroldson "H.L." Hunt helped to fund the Cuban Revolutionary Council, a group that worked with the mafia and the CIA in an effort to remove Castro from power. H.L.Hunt developed extreme conservative political opinions. In 1951 he launched the political campaign Douglas MacArthur for President. Along with two of his sons, Nelson Bunker Hunt and Lamar Hunt, he set-up a right-wing intelligence network, the International Committee for the Defense of Christian Culture.
H.L. Hunt established the Placid Oil Company in 1935. The following year he acquired the Excelsior Refining Company in Rusk County and changed the name to Parade Refining Company. He also established his headquarters in Dallas, Texas. In 1948 a newspaper reported that Hunt was the richest man in the United States. It estimated the value of his oil properties at $263 million and the daily production of crude from his wells at 65,000 barrels.
Clint Murchison, a rich Texas oil company owner, was also closely linked to the Mafia. In 1955 a Senate committee discovered that 20 per cent of the Murchison Oil Lease Company was owned by Vito Genovese, the boss of the New York mafia family. The committee also discovered Murchison had close financial ties with Carlos Marcello.

It was rumored that anti-Castro Cubans received military training at the ranch at James R. Dougherty Jr. near Beeville, TX and that he was a member of a Minuteman group. Dougherty Jr's lawyer father formed the oil company of Hewitt and Dougherty, which operated over a wide area of South and West Texas. His father also fought in the Mexican American war.
Hunt also funded two right-wing and racist radio shows, Facts Forum and Life Line. He used these radio stations to support the anti-communist campaign of Joseph McCarthy. He also helped to finance the political career of Lyndon B. Johnson. A member of the John Birch Society, Hunt was a close friend of retired Major General Edwin A. Walker, US Army.
MG Walker had the financial backing of H.L. Hunt in his campaign to fight communism in the US. Hunt was/is a Texas oil tycoon and conservative activist. Along with two of his sons, Nelson Bunker Hunt and Lamar Hunt, he set-up a right-wing, anti-communist, intelligence network, the International Committee for the Defense of Christian Culture. This group had a militia, called Minutemen, made up of former military guys as well as local law enforcement and federal agents dangerous extremists.
Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara relieved Major Gen. Walker of his command because a number of soldiers had complained that MG Walker was instructing them as to cast their votes for arch-conservative Republicans in the next election. David Talbot argues in his book, Brothers: The Hidden History of the Kennedy Years, that Walker's indoctrination program had been endorsed by General Lyman Lemnitzer. Talbot quotes a letter from Lemnitzer to Walker saying that he found his efforts "interesting and useful." In protest MG Walker resigned from the Army on November 2, 1961. Gen. Lemnitzer was the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from Oct.1, 1962 to Sept. 30, 1962.
Walker was a supporter of the John Birch Society and totally opposed to school desegregation. However, as commander of the Arkansas Military District he was forced to implement the orders of Dwight Eisenhower. This was after the September 3, 1957, when the governor of Arkansas, used the National Guard to stop black children from attending the local high school in Little Rock.
