Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) reports circulating in the Kremlin today state that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has agreed to allow the United States Central Intelligence Agency’s top spy to take over his countries military and police forces in order to stamp out the growing threat to America’s most vital Arab ally in the Middle East.
According to these reports, US President Barack Obama phoned Mubarak on February 1st ordering the Egyptian dictator to allow this CIA takeover of Egyptian military and police forces or face “immediate and permanent removal”, a term this report says is a euphemism for “assassination”.
Upon Mubarak’s agreeing to Obama’s harsh order, these reports continue, the American President put in charge of Egypt the United States most feared spy, Ambassador Frank G. Wisner II, who the SVR says has been the Egyptian dictators CIA “handler” and best friend for decades.
To understand how feared Wisner II is among Russian Intelligence services one has to know that his father, Frank G. Wisner I (1909-1965), was head of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) operations in southeastern Europe at the end of World War II, and the head of the Directorate of Plans [now known as the National Clandestine Service (NCS)] of the Central Intelligence Agency during the 1950s.
Even more crucial to understand about Wisner I was that prior to joining the CIA he headed the Office of Policy Coordination (OPC) which was a US covert psychological operations and paramilitary action organization. Created as an independent office in 1948 by the US State Department, it was merged with the CIA in 1951.
In 1947 Wisner I established Operation Mockingbird, a program to influence the domestic and foreign media. In 1952, he became head of the Directorate of Plans, with Richard Helms (1913-2002) as his chief of operations. This office had control of 75% of the CIA budget.
In this position, Wisner I engineered the toppling of the Iranian Prime Minister Mohammed Mossadegh (1882-1967) in 1953 to instill a dictator, and ousted Guatemala President Jacobo Arbenz Guzmán (1913-1971) in a 1954 CIA-backed coup to put in place a military junta.
The much feared leader of the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), J. Edgar Hoover, became jealous of Wisner’s growing power and described the OPC as “Wisner’s gang of weirdo’s” and began carrying out investigations into their past.
It did not take Hoover long to discover that some of them had been active in left-wing politics in the 1930s. This information was passed to Senator Joseph McCarthy (1908-1957) who started making attacks on members of the OPC. Hoover also gave McCarthy details of an affair that Wisner I had with Princess Caradja (1893-1993) in Romania during the war; Hoover claimed that Caradja was a Soviet agent. Hoover and Senator McCarthy succeeded in forcing CIA director Allen W. Dulles (1893-1969) to dismiss one of his key staff members, Carmel Offie (1909-1972) in 1953 over Wisner’s objections.
Wisner I, also, worked closely with Kim Philby (1912-1988), the British agent who was eventually unmasked as a Soviet spy.
These SVR reports further link Wisner I with the 1963 CIA-engineered coup against President John F. Kennedy (1917-1963), and which cost him his life when in 1965 he attempted to “revise” his testimony before The President’s Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy (known unofficially as the Warren Commission).
On October 29, 1965, however, and prior to his being able to be interviewed again by the Warren Commission, these SVR reports state that Wisner I was assassinated in his own home by his own son, Wisner II with a shotgun blast to the head.
Wisner II, who by late 1965, these SVR reports say, was already a seasoned CIA covert agent, was ordered to assassinate his own father, but whose death was labeled a suicide by his use of his son’s shotgun.
Wisner II, in carrying on his fathers “tradition”, these reports continue, engineered the 1981 assassination of Egyptian President Muhammad Anwar El Sadat (1918-1981) thus successfully installing the CIA controlled Mubarak as president-for-life over Egypt. Even worse for the Egyptian people was Wisner II’s first “order” for Mubarak to make another of the CIA’s Egyptian agents, General Omar Suleiman his vice president.
The next actions taken against the Egyptian people by their new defacto leader Wisner II have been both brutal and predictable as mobs of what are described as government thugs descended yesterday upon thousands of peaceful protesters, and with the death toll in this revolution estimated to be over 300, and just like the 1953 Wisner I-backed overthrow of Iran, Egypt’s Army has “stepped in” to restore calm and order.
To the eventual outcome of these events it is not in our knowing, other than to point out the obvious fact, that when the CIA moves in, thousands of innocent human beings will lose their lives so that the dictators and tyrants supported and propped up by the US can continue to rule their Nations with an iron fist.
