I can't talk about the Bush Sr. administration's UNKNOWN history without going back in timeand reviewing the history of Bush II. This history is linked to Bush II's history working with theCIA and the Secret Team which I talked about earlier. First let me review with you some of thehistory of the U.S. involvement with the mafia and drug trafficking. Here is a goo
 A brief history of CIA involvement in the Drug Trade:
by William Blum.1947 to 1951, FRANCEAccording to Alfred W. McCoy in
The Politics of Heroin in Southeast Asia
, arms, money, anddisinformation supplied by the OSS (now the CIA) enabled/facilitated the Corsican herointrafficking syndicates in Marseille, France. This helped France to wrestle control of the Frenchlabor unions from the Communist Party. During World War II, the U.S. also made an agreementwith the U.S. mafia to prevent labor strikes by longshoreman at U.S. ports.Early 1950s, SOUTHEAST ASIAThe Nationalist Chinese army, organized by the CIA to wage covert war against CommunistChina, became the opium barons of The Golden Triangle (Burma, Thailand and Laos), theworld's largest source of opium and heroin. The ClA's principal airline proprietary (frontcompany), Air America, flew drugs all over Southeast Asia. ( Christopher Robbins, Air America,Avon Books, 1985, chapter 9.)1950s to early 1970s, INDOCHINAEarly in 1962, Robert Kennedy was trying to prosecute a top Mafia boss, Sam Giancana, whenhe found the CIA interceding on Giancana's behalf.During U.S. military involvement in Laos and other parts of Indochina, Air America flew opiumand heroin throughout the area. Many Gl's in Vietnam became addicts. A laboratory built at CIAheadquarters in northern Laos was used to refine heroin. After a decade of American militaryintervention, Southeast Asia had become the source of 70 percent of the world's illicit opium andthe major supplier of raw materials for America's booming heroin market.What is going on here is the development of a shadow CIA funded by drug trafficking. Thisstarted with the assassination of President Kennedy and as the Congress started conductinginvestigations into illegal activities of the CIA. As a result the extremist, anti-communist groupsin the U.S. went underground (developed a secret team) in order to continue their covert foreign policy goals. The Watergate scandal, the end of the Vietnam war, and the election of PresidentCarter; forced these U.S. fascist political groups/outfits to move into the drug trafficking, moneylaundering operations, and to work hand in hand with world wide mafias.---------------Professor Alfred McCoy's 1972 classic,
The Politics of Heroin In South East Asia
, and his 1991update,
The Politics of Heroin - CIA Complicity In the Global Drug Trade,
tell of how CIAhelicopters in Vietnam were carrying drugs from the fields to the distribution points. He
describes how a
Pepsi Cola
bottling plant was used for this trade and how the media suppressedthis information. The CIA smuggled drugs into America in plastic bags hidden in the bodycavities of the dead soldiers being returned home for burial from Vietnam. CIA officer,
, has told how some bodies were gutted and filled with drugs for shipment back tothe States.The bodies carried secret codes which allowed those carrying the drugs to be identified on arrivalat West Coast air bases, particularly the Travis Air Force Base in California."http://www.mindcontrolforums.com/pro-freedom.co.uk/war_on_drugs.html" 1973-80 INDOCHINAThe Nugan Hand Bank of Sydney, Australia was a CIA bank in all but name. Among its officerswere a network of US generals, admirals and CIA men. With branches in Saudi Arabia, Europe,Southeast Asia, South America and the U.S., Nugan Hand Bank financed drug trafficking,money laundering and international arms dealings. ( Jonathan Kwitny, The Crimes of Patriots: ATrue Tale of Dope, Dirty Money and the CIA, W.W. Norton & Co., 1987.)
 After retiring from the CIA,
Colonel Paul Helliwell
, the founder of such CIA front companies asAir America and Sea Supply Inc. (which shipped vast quantities of arms to the opium-growingKuomintang forces in Burma) opened a law office in Miami and formed
Castle Bank 
offshore innearby Nassau.
Castle Bank operated as a money laundry for both CIA
and organized crimefunds. In addition, an investment firm for which Helliwell was counsel mingled CIA funds withdirty money from Philippine dictator Ferdinand Marcos.Lansky's mafia associate from Las Vega, Moe Dalitz, opened an account at Castle Bank. (TheStrength of the Wolf, p. 373)In
, Castle Bank had been liquidated. Simultaneously with the closure of Castle Bank, camethe sudden rise of Nugan Hand's formal banking operations in the nearby Cayman Islands.Retired CIA officers associated with Castle Bank were recruited by Nugan Hand, which tooover the role of shifting money for various CIA covert operations around the globe.
Nugan Hand Bank 
was the conduit through which the secret team formed by
Ted Shackley,Edward Wilson, Tom Clines, Richard Secord
and co. funneled the massive fortune generated by heroin pipeline. A central figure in the handling of 
drug profits wasformer naval officer 
Richard L. Armitage
, whose official duty in Thailand was "special
consultant" to the Pentagon. However, Armitage actually functioned as a "bursar", overseeingthe transfer of 
Vang Pao's
heroin profits to Shackley's Nugan Hand account in Tehran. Fromlate
until the ultimate withdrawal of U.S. forces from Indochina in
April 1975
, money wassmuggled out of Vietnam in large suitcases by Secord and Clines, and deposited in a secret Nugan Hand account in Australia. Armitage later became Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs.Unable to secure all the money needed to wage covert wars around the world, the CIA or 
shadow CIA
has maintained front companies, banks, and illegal trades to supply the neededrevenue. Connections and leverage in the outland world of drugs and weapons allows for factions within the agency and like minded interests to act outside the confines of laws toinfluence the futures of countries in the process of defining themselves.Here are the names of the principal officers of 
Nugan Hand Bank 
. Note the high level of linkage to the military and CIA.
Admiral Earl F. Yates
, President, chief of staff for strategic planning of US forces in Asia andthe Pacific during the Vietnam War;
General Edwin F. Black
