Perhaps the biggest secret of the Vietnam War is that our Central Intelligence Agency seized control of the infamous Golden Triangle during that time period, then, along with assistance from various elements of Organized Crime, shipped huge amounts of heroin out of that area into our country. Because piles of money were being made from this practice and many others, those who stood to profit from this horrendous war – the armament manufacturers, bankers, military men, and drug dealers – met any suggestion to withdraw from Vietnam with immediate consternation. But that’s exactly what John F. Kennedy intended to do upon re-election. In fact, he had already planned on telling the American people that their troops would be back home by 1965. Think about this momentous decision for a moment. If we had exited Vietnam by 1965, EIGHT years of bloodshed in the jungles and civil unrest on America’s streets and campuses could have been alleviated.

Michael Collins Piper writers in Final Judgment: “Kennedy’s intended change in Vietnam policy – his plan to unilaterally withdraw from the imbroglio – infuriated not only the CIA but elements in the Pentagon and their allies in the military-industrial-complex. By this time, of course, the Lansky Syndicate had already set-up international heroin running from Southeast Asia through the CIA-linked Corsican Mafia in the Mediterranean. The joint Lansky-CIA operations in the international drug racket were a lucrative venture that thrived as a consequence of deep U.S. involvement in Southeast Asia as a cover for drug smuggling activities.”

Piper’s simple one-paragraph explanation may be the most concise overview of the Vietnam War ever written. The military men and defense contractors were making out like bandits from the War Machine, while the CIA crooks and Lansky-led Mobsters (via Santo Traficante as the major wheeler-dealer) were likewise padding their pockets. Author Peter Dale Scott, in Deep Politics and the Death of JFK, said of this phenomenon, “The flood of drugs into this country since WWII was one of the major ‘unspeakable’ secrets leading to the ongoing cover-up of the Kennedy assassination.”

To provide a broader perspective on this situation, Professor Alfred McCoy stated in The Politics of Heroin, “Since the prohibition of narcotics in 1920, alliances between drug brokers and intelligence agencies have protected the global narcotics traffic. Given the frequency of such alliances, there seems a natural attraction between intelligence agencies and criminal syndicates. Both are practitioners of what one retired CIA operative has called the ‘clandestine arts’ – the basic skill of operating outside the normal channels of civil society. Among all the institutions of modern society, intelligence agencies and crime syndicates alone maintain large organizations capable of carrying out covert operations without fear of detection.”

On the government side, the two main Golden Triangle runners were Ted Schackley and Thomas Clines – the same two men who ran Operation Mongoose (the plot to take out Fidel Castro). Thus, from 1960-1975, the CIA deployed a secret force of 30,000 Hmong tribesmen to fight the Laotian Communists. They also created heroin labs in this area; then brought it out via their own private airline – Air America.

Alfred McCoy, in The Politics of Heroin: CIA Complicity in the Global Drug Trade, describes how the CIA first gave smack to our own American soldiers in Vietnam before shipping it into the United States, where Lansky mobsters dealt it on the streets.

Sam Giancana’s biographers reinforced this point by stating that while organized crime did its thing, “The CIA looked the other way – allowing over $100 million a year in illicit drugs to flow through Havana into the U.S. It was an arrangement similar to all the rest they’d made. The CIA received 10% of the take on the side of narcotics, which they utilized for their undercover slush fund.”

After the Mob and the CIA generated this dirty money, they laundered it into secret bank accounts controlled by the international bankers. That way, the government couldn’t get their hands on it and the funds could be invested in the stock market, loaned out to other businesses on the take, or channeled into the Secret Services’ black budgets.

So, even though the above information is only the tip of the iceberg, now do you see why it was so important to the CIA/Mobster/international banker cabal that JFK didn’t pull America out of Vietnam? The money (via illegal drug trafficking and for the War Machine) was incredible, while CONTROL of another area of the globe (the Golden Triangle) was secured.

As a final note, only FOUR DAYS after John Kennedy was assassinated, Lyndon Baines Johnson, his successor, put his name on NSAM 273, which secured our increased involvement in Southeast Asia. These guys weren’t wasting any time! Within a few short months, our involvement in Vietnam went from 20,000 troops to a quarter of a million! The CIA had won, and ten years later 58,229 American soldiers were dead – truly shocking and abysmal behavior – an embarrassment and blight on the American consciousness.


Thank you very much, John.

  1. “Sometime in the late 1950s, that world-class gossip and occasional historian, John F. Kennedy, told me how, in 1948, Harry S. Truman had been pretty much abandoned by everyone when he came to run for president. Then an American Zionist brought him two million dollars in cash, in a suitcase, aboard his whistle-stop campaign train. ‘That’s why our recognition of Israel was rushed through so fast.’ As neither Jack nor I was an antisemite (unlike his father and my grandfather) we took this to be just another funny story about Truman and the serene corruption of American politics” Gore Vidal Jewish History, Jewish Religion:

  2. What is also shocking , is that the autor speaks only of the american dead and forget about the 3 to 4 millions of vietmes that died to liberate their country. There were also millions of injured and disabled. A lot of peoples were also killed and injured in Laos and Cambodgia.
    The war in Vietnam gave birth to the Red Khmer in Cambodgia who in turn killed millions of peoples .

    1. Dead-On Djon, and this was just ONE of the Many reasons WHY the USA as it stand NOW, is DAMNED to Fail…MAGA is a sour assed JOKE!
      This whole country was STOLEN from it’s INDIGENOUS Beings…and Continuing it’s STEALING down to TODAY.

  3. And, by the way…REMEMBER Who the REAL Jews ARE (Today) and they are NOT the current “Occupiers” there Now…THEY ARE A BLACK RACE PEOPLE…STILL VERY MUCH ALIVE AND WELL LIVING ALL OVER THE PLANET AS FORETOLD TO BE.
    There are largely “Kharzrians” occupying Israel.

    1. I got to say thanks to you Kenneth. From your first link regarding from Indigenous American to African American to to now watching some of King Drop’s 432 stuff! ManI thought my eyes were opening. There is a lot to still learn. The video he had posted some time ago regarding ‘There are no forests grow on flat earth’ was a real eye opener.
      Cheers man and have a good weekend.

  4. “Perhaps the biggest secret of the Vietnam War is that our Central Intelligence Agency seized control of the infamous Golden Triangle during that time period”

    First) Not completely true. The Vietnam war crime was an expansion of the ZIA’s (Zion Imperious Agency) war for control of the Golden Triangle, primarily in Laos. The ZIA was getting their asses handed to them, and so brought in the Pentagon to assist with transport to the region and bombing of the same, especially of Laos. The Pentagon then wanted their own warcrime, and so was granted the Vietnam warcrime.

    In the ZIA and Pentagon tit-for-tat toward the end of the Vietnam warcrime, the Khazarian propaganda-media spun up a story of the bombing in Laos and Cambodia being a new crime. The Bombing in Laos PRECEDED the Vietnam warcrime.

    Tossed out of the Golden Triangle, the ZIA then moved to the next richest opium area, Afghanistan–“Brzezinski?! Anyone?! Bueller?!”

    Second) It is not “our” CIA. It is theirs, the Khazarian fifth-column and US Tyranny’s. It, they, do not serve us.

    Third) Protocols 2:1. It is indispensable for our purpose that wars, so far as possible, should not result in territorial gains: war will thus be brought on to the economic ground…” The Southeast Asia warcrimes were right out of the Khazarians’ playbook.

    1. This all goes way deeper than that, and we know this Chris. ‘Our’ forefathers partook in the biggest annihilation of this planet some time back. Not only people but all inhabitants of this planet, the trees, the animals too. If we the population do not wake up, we will leave behind another Mars, another Moon for ‘we’ are the destroyers of planets( earths) One wonders now what we have started doing on the other side of the South Pole?

      1. Have JOY Shaplemau….The ONLY thing going to be REMOVED from this planet are the ONES trying to destroy it….ALL THE LUCIFERIAN/SATANIST!
        Hell! They are already at work on THEIR OWN “Self-Destruction” and are too STUPID to see HOW they are doing it!
        They are SLOW figuring this out.

    1. It just make one sick to hear this and yet none of us are doing a damn thing that is positively right for this planet! We still teach tripe in schools, brainwashing the next generation of children to be just like us.
      Best to find Haya – The almighty, the Creator.

  5. Drugs, guns and flesh make lots of cash and thus illegal money for their respective operators. If one wants to expose the core of this cartel’s activities then one should focus attention on the various and numerous money-laundering operations in existence. These are the real ‘banks’, holding the real wealth of humanity, in abeyance and without credible title.

    This is the cause of the cancer infecting our communities. Criticising people generally, and nations per se merely adds another layer of confusion to an already clouded circumstance. When angry people can come down from their moral high-horses then, and only then, may they have any chance of seeing this for what it is, and not for what they try and tell you it is.

    1. Yep and the poppy fields in Afghanistan are back to providing yields of up 90% of the world’s cocaine and heroine, which is 10% higher than it was before the Taliban nearly successfully wiped its production from the face of the map. ( Only the west can do right!).
