Jesus wept. From the Vatican Secret Service via an Opus Dei mentor. These accounts were still held by Lansdale when he became a Major General. So they are not accounts he only had in the 1940s or 1950s. The sums are vast. And these banks are not among those black banks, including BCCI, set up by Paul Helliwell (attorney of Meyer Lansky) who was employed by General Donovan as chief of station for the OSS in Kunming, and went on to have a long career serving the agency and the Mob, simultaneously.
Phi Beta Iota: Ed Landsdale was both the primary action officer for the recovery of the Japanese gold looted from China and elsewhere, and hidden in the Philippines; and also the primary architect of false flag terror and the creation of the hidden executioners within the US Government — some at CIA, some within the various military services, others in the Mafia and in private corporations such as Brown & Root and Zapata Oil (the Bush family foot in the door of real wealth, as a cover company). This matters as an indication of scale — if the action officer ended up with this much (the trillion dollar number is astounding and of course questionable as a possible error), imagine what the Black Lily Fund and other related funds had in them. Imagine how easily US Presidents have been bought once JFK was assassinated (this is how George Bush Senior “made his bones”) and it was clear that the US financial families know how to offer “the gold or the lead.” The depth of corruption within all elements of US society cannot be understated.
