Why is no one
reporting that �Faisal the Fizzler� is tied to Israeli-American Leon Black and
Israel-dominated organized crime syndicates dating back to the 1920s? Why is no
one reporting the ties to junk bond king and Israeli-American Michael Milken?
How can Americans make informed choices without access to the real facts?
Faisal Sharzad -- AKA The
Times Square Fizzler -- reportedly was trained by the �Pakistan Taliban�
for a deadly deed that went horribly wrong.
Not only did he lock his keys in the car, including his
apartment key, his Rube Goldberg contraption of alarm clocks, Walmart propane
tanks and firecrackers failed to explode.
Apparently he was also expertly trained to purchase
fertilizer that could not possibly explode.
Happily, Pakistani Evildoers did not train him to drive. He
could have ended up in New Jersey.
Somehow he found his way to one of the busiest streets in
midtown Manhattan just as the United Nations -- in midtown Manhattan -- was
preparing to debate a treaty to create a Middle East free of nuclear weapons.
Was that part of the story missing from the Fox News
coverage you saw of this incident? In truth, for non-coverage any mainstream
source would suffice.
That U.N. treaty, first proposed in 1995, would force Israel
to forfeit its nuclear weapons, a goal first sought by President
John F. Kennedy in June 1963. We know how that worked out.
What�s become of this Muslim Evildoer after he miraculously
found his way to Times Square -- after miraculously eluding airport security
during his 16 trips abroad to train with the Pakistan Taliban? Did he come and
go through the same airports where security was provided by ICTS, the Israeli
firm that played host to the dreaded �Christmas
Though Faisal refreshed a flagging storyline -- The
Global War on Terrorism -- the Fizzler�s storyline has since become
problematic. Let�s take a closer look.
News you can trust
CNN briefly showed a photo of Apollo Management, Sharzad�s
employer. That photo appeared on CNN for about a second. End of story and no
mention since. Why?
Here�s the online Newsweek account of where the
Fizzler worked from 2006-2009:
May 4 (Bloomberg) -- Faisal Shahzad, charged with attempting
to bomb New York�s Times Square, worked for three years at a company controlled
by Leon Black�s private-equity firm, Apollo Management LP.
Who is Leon Black? What is Apollo? And why isn�t his three
years of employment there newsworthy?
Remember Major Nidal Hasan, the Fort
Hood Shooter? His job history provided key clues to his bizarre behavior.
Is that why Hasan too has disappeared from the news?
Are the clues hidden in plain sight?
Imagine this: what if the intelligence that induced the U.S.
to war in Iraq was �fixed� around a preset goal. What if the common source of
that treachery is poised to become transparent?
If you were complicit in a deception of that magnitude -- a clear act
of treason -- how would you obscure the facts? What measures would you take
to sustain the storyline?
If you are the Evildoer, how would you maintain a Muslim
Evildoer narrative? What would be required to advance a storyline built on a
belief in the threat of Islamo fascism?
What happens to the storyline if the pre-war intelligence is
proven a fiction traceable to a common source? What
then for the storytellers?
For those marketing The Clash of Civilizations, Major Hasan�s psychotic break at Fort
Hood in Texas was a well-timed blessing. Likewise for the Christmas Day Bomber
and the Times Square Terrorist.
See if you can detect a common thread in this marketing of
the Hasan threat by Family
- President Carol Taber
described this incident as �the Ft. Hood terrorist attack� by an �Islamist
- Editor Pam Meister
promoted �the shocking TRUTH [sic] behind these attacks so that we might
ward off those yet to come.�
- Executive Vice-President
Linda Cohen, a trustee of the Anti-Defamation League, offered this advice:
�No one is safe now. Not you, not the military, not your children, not
office workers nor subway riders, nor anyone who happens to be in the
wrong place at the wrong time.�
Why was the Times Square Fizzler at just the right place at
just the right time?
Advancing the Narrative
Is there a precedent for combining aberrant personal
behavior and �terrorism� to advance a preset agenda? Do you recall the sniper
attacks around Washington, D.C., in October 2002?
That murder spree began one day before debate commenced
Resolution 46 proposed by Senator Joe Lieberman to authorize the use of
U.S. forces in Iraq.
In the immediate aftermath of 9/11, Lieberman and Arizona
Senator John McCain urged that the U.S. focus its forces not on Al Qaeda in
Afghanistan but on regime change in Iraq.
Meanwhile the nation�s capital became a city under siege as
those random attacks created widespread insecurity and heightened anxiety as
serial murders left 10 dead and three wounded over a 10-day period.
Those murders quickly transformed the emotionally wrenching
terror of 9/11 into a personal reality for Washington residents, including U.S.
lawmakers pondering whether to invade Iraq.
Meanwhile Lieberman and McCain -- citing phony intelligence
-- promoted a U.S. military invasion of a nation that had no hand in that mass
Assets and transnational treason
Was Faisal Sharzad a Pakistani patsy? In the psy-ops
parlance, was he an �asset�?
An asset is a term from psy-ops used to describe someone
whose personality has been profiled in great depth. A reliable asset can be
catalyzed to act out known personality traits in ways that advance an agenda
based on the time, place and circumstances of that catalyst. While an asset�s
behavior is never 100 percent foreseeable, it is reliable within an acceptable
range of probabilities.
Walk Monica Lewinsky in front of Bill Clinton, what was the
probability of his response. If a U.S. official orders that an American
Muslim be held for 18 months in solitary confinement in a jail in Yemen, what�s
the probability that Anwar
al-Aswlaki would emerge radicalized and bearing a grudge against the U.S.?
The facts suggest that Army psychiatrist Nidal Hasan was
such an asset. Don�t expect to find this analysis on the Rupert
Murdoch-controlled Fox News or in his many newspapers. Or on CNN despite
its branding as �News You Can Trust.�
are typically profiled and developed over lengthy periods of time. Their
potential to act out a known personality disorder is held in reserve in much
the same way that a military commander holds troops in reserve for deployment
at an opportune time.
How is an asset developed in plain sight and �tasked� at the
opportune time? Only a careful investigation can identify those influences
particular to Dr. Hasan. Or to Faisal Sharzad. A good faith investigation would
include the decisions that led to Dr. Hasan�s transfer to Ft. Hood and the
circumstances there that triggered his behavior.
That�s also true for The Times Square Fizzler. While
obviously not the brightest light in the shed, he was sufficiently competent to
drive a car. And apparently he was bright enough to do financial analysis for
Leon Black even though he apparently bought the wrong fertilizer at Walmart.
God only knows where he bought the fireworks. Perhaps in New
A similar history of befuddled behavior surrounds the
comically inept Christmas Day Bomber, a young Nigerian whose failed �terrorist
incident� mirrors that of Sharzad. An unidentified Indian gentleman led The
Crotch Bomber through Amsterdam airport security without a passport where
he boarded a flight to the U.S.
Here�s an experiment. Try entering Amsterdam�s Schiphol
airport without a passport. Then try boarding an international flight. Did it
help that airport security was managed by ICTS, an Israeli firm? What�s
component in each of these well-timed �incidents?�
Who had the means, motive, opportunity and insider
intelligence to perpetrate this �terrorist� act in midtown Manhattan? What role
was played by Leon Black and Apollo management?
Is The New York Times correct in its May 22
editorial: �As the aborted Times Square and Christmas Day bombings proved,
militant groups are determined to strike here again.� Is that what these
incidents �proved�? Really?
Is it sufficient to report that this latest incident is
traceable to the �Pakistan Taliban�? Does that alone -- and in isolation --
explain how such operations are pre-staged and orchestrated?
As a combat-stress psychiatrist, Dr. Hasan dealt daily with
injured and mentally troubled veterans at Walter Reed Hospital where the most
grievously wounded from Iraq and Afghanistan are sent for treatment. Many of
them are amputees, burned, disfigured, brain-damaged or otherwise handicapped
for life. Their care -- or lack thereof -- is a national scandal.
While coping with that vicarious trauma, Dr. Hasan was
taunted for his Muslim beliefs. He was also harassed and ridiculed for his
Middle Eastern heritage even though he was born, raised and educated in the
What happened to Faisal Sharzad during his three years at
Apollo? Did he encounter an experience similar to Hasan? Is that why the Leon
Black connection disappeared so quickly?
To answer that question required a look at the curious
history of Mr. Black, his investment banking firm and a deeper inquiry into the
question of what is �proven� by this latest in a series of well-timed, high
profile �terrorist incidents.�
The mental environment
The National Crime Syndicate convened its first nationwide
conference in Atlantic City in 1929. That�s where the U.S. component of
transnational organized crime divided the U.S. into 24 exclusive markets in
order to put an end to the political problems that accompanied murderous
disputes over territory.
Those territories were finalized in 1931 at a Jews-only
conclave at the Franconia Hotel in Manhattan. Five of the 24 markets were
established in and around New York City.
The Outfit has long been a source of pop culture narratives,
including The Godfather movies starring Marlon Brando and Al Pacino
and The Sopranos, a
popular television series. Those storylines branded organized crime as Italian
or Sicilian with Jews playing only a minor role.
This is Hollywood after all, home of the skilled storyteller
and the master mythmaker.
To say Sicilian or Italian organized crime will not unleash
the hounds. To say �Jewish� organized crime assures a snarling charge of
anti-Semitism -- unless you�re Jewish. In that case, the offense is downgraded
to �self-hating Jew.� Those remain the only two alternatives for anyone willing
speaking candidly -- and factually -- about organized crime.
Estonian Kalle Lasn saw firsthand how myth could displace
facts in plain sight by psy-ops specialists skilled at targeting the mental
environment. In March 2004, he published an article in Adbusters, a
Vancouver-based magazine that he founded. First, he cited key facts: less
than three percent of Americans are Jewish (1.7 percent according to most
sources). Yet when you examine a list of the top 50 neoconservatives advocating
war in Iraq, 26 are are Jewish (52 percent).
Noting the wildly disproportionate numbers, he titled the
article: �Why Won�t
Anyone Say They�re Jewish?� He soon found out. He was attacked as an
�anti-Semite� for asking the question.
Don�t ask. Don�t tell.
Yet the facts remain indisputable -- both for the neocons
and for those who dominate transnational organized crime. The bulk of
those who �fixed� U.S. intelligence to invade Iraq were either Jewish or
�assets� whose careers were nurtured by pro-Israelis.
Lasn�s subtitle for Adbusters: The Journal of the Mental Environment. Could
that environment be the target of this series of well-timed �terrorist�
incidents? Were these incidents staged to advance, reinvigorate a faltering
storyline with �incidents� that could plausibly be blamed on Muslim Evildoers?
Is Faisal the Fizzler part of an ongoing psy-ops? What about Fox News? CNN?
Only a good faith investigation can answer that question.
The answer may require a closer look at Leon Black and a glimpse into the
�fields within fields . . . within fields� of relationships through which
organized crime operates across time and distance.
Discrediting and disabling the U.S.
Leon Black first appeared on the national scene in 1975 when
his father �fell� to his death from the 44th floor of Manhattan�s Pan Am
Building. Two years later, the son emerged as head of mergers and acquisitions
and co-head of corporate finance at Drexel Burnham Lambert where he worked
closely with Michael Milken, the firm�s �junk bond� specialist in Beverly
In the 1970s, Cincinnati�s Carl Lindner and his American
Financial Group began investing in United Fruit. To escape the firm�s notorious
past, its name was changed to United Brands and then Chiquita Brands
International. After the death of CEO Eli Black, Lindner assumed control.
United Fruit became a key conduit for moving Israeli arms
into covert wars throughout Latin America, culminating in the Iran-Contra
scandal of 1987. That scandal discredited the presidency of Ronald Reagan when
he was forced to concede that his administration sold arms to Iran, an avowed
enemy, and used the funds to arm Nicaraguan rebels despite a congressional ban.
The term �Banana Republic� traces to the corrupting
influence of United Fruit. The U.S. was discredited throughout Latin America
and the Caribbean by the firm�s multi-decade bribery of foreign officials and
its use of force to control and impoverish indigenous peoples.
Lindner�s American Financial Group was an early investor in
Drexel�s high-yield (�junk�) securities packaged by Milken in deals coordinated
with Leon Black in midtown Manhattan. Other early junk bond investors included
insurance firms owned by Saul Steinberg and Meshulam Riklis.
Riklis� Rapid-American Corp. became an acquisition vehicle
for Lerner Shops, Playtex and RKO film studios, previously owned in part by
bootlegger and stock swindler Joseph P. Kennedy, the politically ambitious
father of John F. Kennedy. JFK was murdered five months after he sought to end
Israel�s nuclear weapons program to preclude a nuclear arms race in the Middle
In 1967, in one of the first junk bond-financed leveraged
buyouts (Michael Milken was still an undergraduate at the University of
California Berkeley), Riklis acquired Lewis Rosenstiel�s shares in Schenley
Industries based in Cincinnati, Lindner�s hometown.
The Istanbul-born Riklis paid for Schenley with junk bonds
issued by Rapid-American, a firm partly owned by Lindner. Under Lindner�s
leadership, United Fruit�s purchase of 40 percent of Rapid-American reportedly
provided majority owner Riklis and his colleagues with resources to purchase
for Israeli General Ariel Sharon his ranch in Israel�s Negev Desert where the
Jewish state�s nuclear arsenal was developed at the Dimona reactor facility.
Fields within Fields
Rosenstiel�s wife, Leonore, left him to marry Walter
Annenberg, Ronald Reagan�s �best friend for 50 years,� according to Nancy
Reagan. Annenberg also served as Richard Nixon�s ambassador to Great Britain.
Son of Chicago mobster Moses �Moe� Annenberg, Walter laundered profits from the
family�s racing-wire service through Triangle Publications, publisher of T.V.
Guide and Seventeen.
As the National Crime Syndicate was being formed, 1929-31,
the Annenberg-inspired racing wire service provided the sinew that bound
together organized crime�s gambling operations dispersed across the U.S. and
Canada and into Mexico and Cuba. As Walter Annenberg steadily distanced himself
from organized crime beginning in the late 1940s, he steadily gained legitimacy
and influence in Republican Party politics through his ownership of The
Leonore Annenberg was raised by her uncle, Harry Cohn, head
of Columbia Pictures. First married to Belden Kattleman, a Las Vegas
businessman, she then married Rosenstiel. During Prohibition, Rosenstiel
bootlegged liquor from England, Europe, and Canada via Saint Pierre and then by
truck into Cincinnati, building what became Schenley Distillers.
One of Rosenstiel�s closest colleagues (and competitors) was
Canadian Sam Bronfman whose Distillers Corporation made a fortune in
bootlegging during Prohibition in collaboration with organized crime, including
Chicago�s fabled Al �Scarface� Capone. Bronfman (Yiddish for �liquor man�)
acquired in 1928 what became Seagram Co. Ltd. From that fortune emerged the
World Jewish Congress.
Prohibition and gambling capitalized organized crime. The
combination of the Annenberg racing wire and high-profit bootlegging created a
nationwide distribution network with those 24 territories still operating as
key nodes in this network. The political corruption from that era identified
pliable and reliable assets whose careers could be nurtured along with their
successors, a key role assumed by the Israel lobby as the syndicate became more
sophisticated and its operations moved more deeply into government operations.
Johnny Lazio was a key participant in the 1929 Atlantic City
conference as the representative of the Pendergast political machined in Kansas
City that was then nurturing the political career of Harry Truman. Two decades
later, this asset was persuaded to extend state recognition to this syndicate when
its operatives established a post-WWII beachhead in the oil-rich Middle East.
Enabling the networks
In 1989, Annenberg liquidated $3 billion of his wealth,
including The Racing Form,
in a sale to Rupert Murdoch. With those proceeds, he donated $150 million to
Annenberg communication schools at the University of Pennsylvania and the
University of Southern California.
Annenberg�s friend Ronald Reagan traces his political career
to Chicago when Annenberg, Chicagoan Jules Stein and Cleveland�s Lew Wasserman
helped �brand� him in the early days of television as the friendly face of
General Electric Theater. It was during his presidency of the Screen Actor�s
Guild (and with Nancy on the board) that the guild extended a �special
exemption� to the Stein/Wasserman-run Music Corporation of America, providing
MCA a competitive advantage that gained them disproportionate influence in
music, television and film-making.
While president, Ronnie and Nancy routinely spent their New
Year�s vacation at Sunnylands, Annenberg�s extensive estate in Rancho Mirage,
California, near Palm Springs. Walter�s father also gravitated to sunnier climes.
After double-crossing a partner in Chicago, Moe fled to south Florida to seek
the protection of National Crime Syndicate �Chairman� Meyer Lansky until he and
his son relocated to Pennsylvania.
The Annenberg political savvy found its way back to Chicago
to nurture the political prospects of an articulate young political activist
whose work there with the Annenberg Education Challenge gained him statewide
and then nationwide political exposure. When elected president in 2008, Barack
Obama appointed Eric Holder, former counsel to Carl Lindner, as his attorney general.
As the Holder-led Department of Justice began to brand
Faisal the Fizzler as evidence of Pakistani Evil Doing, Senator Kit Bond, a member
of the Senate Intelligence Committee complained that Holder had �executed a
hostile takeover of the intelligence community.�
Fields within fields . . . within fields
Why take you down this circuitous route in an account of the
�Times Square Terrorist�? Read on to close the circle.
In the mid-1950s, former Phoenix mobster Gus Greenbaum
managed and then sold the Riviera Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, one of the
premier properties controlled by the Chicago Outfit. The buyer was Cincinnatian
Riklis, a former member of the Haganah, a paramilitary outfit active in
terrorizing Palestinians from 1920 to 1948 when it became the Israel Defense
Riklis tutored Milken, then a young bond broker, and
reportedly was Milken�s first customer as Milken morphed into a major figure in
the boom of leveraged buyouts that emerged during the Reagan era. Fellow
Lindner emerged as a father figure to Milken who oversaw a massive �control
fraud� at Lincoln Savings and Loan in Phoenix, Arizona.
The face on this fraud was Charles Keating who previously
served as general counsel to the Linder-controlled, Cincinnati-based American
Arizona Senator John McCain led a group
of five senators known as �the Keating Five� whose delay of needed reforms
raised the taxpayer cost of that nationwide fraud by an additional $50 billion,
to exceed $150 billion.
Lindner boasts on the firm�s website that he is the �largest non-Jewish
contributor to Jewish causes in the U.S.� Alan Greenspan, then working for
J.P. Morgan, was retained by Keating to help recruit the Keating Five.
To succeed with that task, Greenspan deployed the goodwill
and political capital he amassed as chairman of the Social Security Commission
(�the Greenspan Commission�). Its 1983 recommendation: Americans should work
longer and pay higher payroll taxes.
A confidante of radical free market theorist Ayn Rand
(Russian Alisa Rosenbaum), Greenspan reemerged as the Reagan-appointed chairman
of the Federal Reserve where over the next 18 years he enabled the subprime
mortgage fraud with sustained low interest rates and enthusiastic support for
what this Rand disciple described as �financial innovation.�
John McCain wrote to Keating in 1983 after his first congressional
victory, �Of the many things to be grateful for in this world, the friendship
of the Keating family is certainly among the most meaningful.� McCain�s top
supporters included Keating and father-in-law Jim Hensley.
Here begins the closing of the circle connecting the savings
and loan fraud of the 1980s and the subprime mortgage fraud two decades later.
And, the facts suggest, the role of misdirection aided by this latest in an
ongoing series of well-timed �terrorist� incidents by Muslim Evildoers.
Notorious mobster Bugsy Siegel is widely credited with
founding Las Vegas as a national crime syndicate haven for gambling and
prostitution when he built The Flamingo, an early casino named after Virginia
Hill, his mob courier girlfriend from Alabama who used Flamingo as her showgirl
The syndicate maintained discipline through Murder, Inc., a
cadre of hit men. When Siegel was discovered stealing from the mob, his murder
in 1947 required that the syndicate relocate Gus Greenbaum to Las Vegas from
Phoenix, leaving Kemper Marley in charge of statewide corruption in Arizona.
Marley hired Jim and Gene Hensley.
After two close scrapes with federal liquor violations for
which the Hensley brothers reportedly took the heat, Jim Hensley emerged with a
beer distributorship that has since grown to the fifth largest in the nation --
owned by Cindy Hensley McCain. Hensley�s Arizona lawyer, William Rehnquist, was
appointed by Reagan as chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.
McCain met Hensley, then 24, when he was the married 42-year
old U.S. Navy liaison to the U.S. Senate. Soon divorced, remarried and
relocated to Arizona, he worked on public relations for his father-in-law while
the Marley machine positioned this classic asset for
election to the Congress -- four years before Arizonan Barry Goldwater�s pending
retirement from the Senate
After 9/11, Republican Senator McCain emerged alongside
Democrat Joe Lieberman as the most insistent high-profile voices for the
invasion of Iraq -- selling that war with intelligence now known to be false.
Lieberman soon chair of the Senate Committee handling Homeland Security. In
that position, he collaborated with Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge, a
former governor of Pennsylvania and a product of the Annenberg political
Ridge stepped in when New York Police Commissioner Bernie
Kerik, the initial appointee of G.W. Bush, withdrew after reports were leaked
of his close ties to organized crime. Ridge was succeeded by Michael Chertoff,
a rabbi�s son and a former senior official in the Criminal Division of the
Justice Department on 9/11. With the election of Chicagoan Obama, who former
Clinton White House counsel Abner Mikva described as our �first Jewish
president,� the secretary of Homeland Security became Janet Napolitano, a
former governor from mobbed-up Arizona.
Are these complex webs of relationships coincidental? Or is
this typical of the overlapping links common to syndicate operations? Is this
how organized crime is sustained through fields-within-fields of relationships
that stretch across time, distance and, as here, both major political parties?
What does this have to do with the Fort
Hood Shooter, the Crotch
Bomb Sizzler and the Faisal the
Fizzler? Are such �terrorist incidents� typical of how war is waged in the
mental environment by creating -- and constantly refreshing -- a narrative? If
so, who would have the motivation to do so?
Does a renewed fear of terrorism help divert attention away
from the latest massive financial fraud? And from the need for reforms that are
not yet forthcoming -- from either party? Meanwhile our financial institutions
remain �too big to fail.�
Are these insecurity-inducing �incidents� a form of
marketing? Are they akin to selling us a product?
Do they ensure defense spending is sustained while social
services are sliced? Is it coincidental that Israel is the world�s third
largest arms exporter?
Are these �incidents� clues to how we are persuaded to
assume more debt to wage more wars with no end in sight? Are these incidents
just business-as-usual for transnational organized crime?
Was the same criminal syndicate involved in the S&L
fraud also active in the Enron fraud? The dot-com crash? The subprime fraud?
The half-a-loaf �financial reform� legislation?
Did these massive financial �incidents� just happen? Or were
they stage-managed from the shadows in an alliance between
policy-making assets and transnational organized crime?
As counsel to the Senate Finance Committee (1980-87), I
witnessed firsthand the embrace of debt-financed �supply-side economics� during
the first year of the Reagan presidency. Its primary financial result was to
dramatically increase the �free cash flow� essential to LBOs (leverage
buyouts). At a time when the securitized debt of the U.S. hovered around $900
billion, this �fiscal conservative� championed a bill that authorized us to
borrow $872 billion.
While those deficit-funded subsidies were cut back slightly
in future years, their impact was certain to concentrate wealth and income and
thereby undermine both democracy and markets -- all in the name of enhancing
our freedom. As a colleague rightly concluded, we got the mortgage (the
deficits) while they got the house, the assets financed with that �free cash
Is it coincidence that private equity/LBO firms most
enriched by this debt-financed change in policy are also best positioned to
recapitalize the banks most devastated by this latest round of debt-financed
excess? Throughout history, debt has always been the prize for those adept at
inducing nations to war. Is this all too familiar?
Are these firms our Wall
In 1948, the Joint Chiefs of Staff cautioned Harry Truman
against granting sovereign recognition to an extremist enclave that was already
using ethnic cleansing to terrorize the indigenous population and occupy lands
adjoining the Muslim-dominant Middle East.
Their rationale: Palestinian
land was rightly theirs as The Chosen because it was long ago given to them
-- by a God of their own choosing.
Truman was warned by U.S. military leaders about the
�fanatical concepts of the Jewish leaders� and their plans for �Jewish military
and economic hegemony over the entire Middle East.� Truman chose not to follow
their advice nor that of his secretary of state, former WWII General George C.
Marshall, who viewed recognition as a geopolitical disaster.
Did our military leaders fail to grasp the scope and scale
of the threat posed by these extremists? Did these �fanatical concepts� include
a plan to deceive the U.S. so that we would deploy our military to
pursue their agenda for dominance in the region? Is that why a
Democratic president�s policy in the Middle East is little changed from that of
Republican G.W. Bush?
Working as a transnational criminal syndicate, did these
extremists collaborate to damage the U.S. economy with disabling debt and
discredit the U.S. abroad with an endless war? Could the presence of this
syndicate help explain why the U.S. continues to dig itself deeper into debt
regardless which political party is in power?
Could the criminal roots of this operation explain why we
hear nothing about Leon Black�s employment of the Times Square Fizzler?
Is the sound of silence speaking to us with an eloquence we
do not yet understand?
