I Should Know: Dems’ Intel Abuse Is Reminiscent of My Work for Ceausescu


By ION MIHAI PACEPA | February 9, 2018

Seen from my vantage point, the four-page FISA abuse memo authored by Rep. Devin Nunes is proof that former president Barack Obama and Democratic Party leaders wanted to transform the U.S. into a Russian-style intelligence dictatorship — and the FBI into a KGB-style instrument for rewriting American history by smearing its capitalist politicians.

They say that history repeats itself. If you have lived two lives, as I have done, you have a good chance of seeing a re-enactment with your own eyes.

Forty years ago, I paid with two death sentences from my native Romania. I had publicly revealed that Ceausescu’s highly praised independence from Moscow was in fact an undercover intelligence dictatorship, designed to transform Romania into a monument to him by annihilating his critics and enemies. “I’ll give you a name, and you’ll build a criminal record for him,” Ceausescu used to tell the head of the Securitate — his Marxist version of the FBI. For him, lying was the first step toward stealing and killing.

In July 1978, Ceausescu gave such a name to my foreign intelligence service, the DIE, and that was the last straw for me. In an open letter to the captive daughter I had to leave behind, repeatedly broadcast by Radio Free Europe after my defection, I explained:

I got the order to organize the assassination of Noel Bernard, the director of Radio Free Europe’s Romanian program, who had infuriated Ceausescu with his commentaries. Knowing you, Dana, I was firmly convinced that you would prefer no father to one who was an assassin.

I spent my next 30 American years under five presidents — some better than others — but the joy of being a part of this magnanimous land of freedom was surpassed only by the joy of simply being alive.

In 2008, however, I suddenly had the feeling of watching Ceausescu’s ghost haunting my adoptive country.

“We are the ones the world is waiting for,” proclaimed Barack Obama during his campaign, while his spiritual adviser Jeremiah Wright was caught on video screaming “God damn America.” The Democratic Party put the icing on the cake, proclaiming Obama an American Messiah. The senator agreed. On June 8, 2008, during a speech in New Hampshire, Obama stated that his presidency would be “the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet to heal.” Earlier, an indiscreet video showed a picture of communist idol Che Guevara hanging on a wall behind Obama.

Our media and our political sages regarded Obama’s outrageous rhetoric as just millennial generational talk. For me, it was thinly veiled Ceausescu talk. My former boss’s version usually was: “A man like me is born only once every five hundred years.” Ceausescu also kept a picture of Che in his office.

At that time, veteran journalist David S. Broder compared Obama’s tactic for hiding his undercover communism to a tactic of military pilots who need to protect themselves when flying over a target heavily defended by anti-aircraft guns: “They release a cloud of fine metal scraps, hoping to confuse the aim of the shells or missiles being fired in their direction.” Obama assiduously sealed off his university transcripts and other key files dealing with his past. Concurrently, he portrayed himself either as a present-day Lincoln or a new Teddy Roosevelt. Nevertheless, the truth is like oil — no matter how much water you add to sink it, it always floats on top.

“I will negotiate with Russia to take our ICBMs off hair-trigger alert and to achieve deep cuts in our nuclear arsenal,” Obama told the country on February 18, 2008, when he announced his foreign policy as future U.S. president. “I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems. I will not weaponize space. I will slow down our development of future combat systems.”

In a private message for Vladimir Putin, picked up by an inadvertently hot microphone, Obama — now president — was more explicit. He told Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev: “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this can be solved, but it is important for him to give me space.”

No wonder Obama was enthusiastically endorsed by the Communist Party USA (CPUSA). In a column entitled “Big Political Shifts Are Underway,” Joelle Fishman, the chairman of the CPUSA Political Action Committee, emphasized that the CPUSA was now part of Obama’s coalition. Nor is it any wonder that when Obama became president, the first open member of a Communist Party was working at the White House. Van Jones (now a CNN contributor) had belonged to an organization named “Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM).”

To a knowledgeable eye, Obama’s actions suggest he might have had some intelligence connection with the Kremlin, such as Whittaker Chambers once had. In 2010, the FBI arrested ten Russian intelligence officers documented as native-born Americans who were serving as spies in the United States. President Obama then returned them to Russia before they were interrogated by the FBI about their spying tasks.




When I was one of the leaders of the KGB community, among other duties I coordinated Romania’s highly secret department for illegal officers, whose task was to form “skeletons of communist governments” in the U.S. and other NATO countries.

It is also noteworthy that soon after these KGB/FSB illegal officers were returned to Moscow, the CPUSA gave its enthusiastic support to Obama’s re-election bid. “It may be early in the campaign season, but the Communist Party USA already has seen fit to endorse Barack Obama for the 2012 election,” stated Sam Webb, the chairman of the CPUSA, in an article published in CPUSA’s official newspaper.

Is our United States a perfect country? Of course not. Since 1792, however, free elections have been the American way of correcting the past and improving the future. Obama, when he came along, tried to replace this American tradition with Russian-style uprisings.

One of the noisiest was “Occupy Wall Street,” an anti-American movement born under Obama’s administration. “Long live the revolution! Long live socialism!” screamed some of the participants. Others marched with Communist flags. “Young people like the ones here today … are the reason I ran for office in the first place,” President Obama told the protesters.

I could write a book about Obama’s undercover Marxism and the devastating effect it has had on my adoptive country.

Seen through the perspective of history, Obama’s undercover Marxism constituted a malignant tumor on the body of the United States. Like most cancers, it worked silently — you could feel it only after it had spread throughout the whole body. Unfortunately, our Democratic Party has refused to extirpate Obama’s cancer, as proved by its 2016 candidates for the White House: Hillary Clinton, a Marxist posing as a progressive; and Bernie Sanders, an open Marxist who honeymooned in the Soviet Union.

Now America’s cancer came to light. A new Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP) announced that it would occupy city centers and parks in major U.S. cities, and not depart until the (legally elected!) capitalist President Trump was forced to flee the White House. The protests, the RCP boasted, would rage “day after day and night after night — not stopping — until our demand is met.”

A couple years ago, the RCP published a draft of a new U.S. Constitution, intended to set forth “fundamental principles and guidelines, for … a vastly different society and government than now exists: the New Socialist Republic in North America.” In order to bring it into being, the RCP Constitution states, “it would be necessary to thoroughly defeat, dismantle and abolish the capitalist-imperialist state of the USA; and this in turn would only become possible with the development of a profound and acute crisis in society.”

The RCP’s Constitution is breathtaking in its Marxist brutality. The “New Socialist Republic in North America” would grant citizenship to everyone currently living here, with the exception of capitalist enemies of the state. The RCP Constitution legalizes “special Tribunals” for dealing with the “war crimes and other crimes against humanity” committed by “former members and functionaries of the ruling class of the imperialist USA and its state and government apparatus.” These enemies of the state would “be imprisoned or otherwise deprived of rights and liberties.”

It continued: “Means of production, and other private capital and wealth of the former capitalist-imperialist ruling class of the United States of America, shall be expropriated, without compensation, and converted into state/public property. … The power to abolish private property is absolute.”

The recent dramatic drop in the stock market should give our Democratic Party a strong warning. The first Marxist empire, the Soviet Union, collapsed overnight without warning. In 1991, former CIA director Stansfield Turner wrote in Foreign Affairs: “I never heard a suggestion from the CIA or the intelligence arms of Defense or State about a growing systemic economic problem [in the Soviet Union].”

It is time for the Democratic Party to realize that all Marxism has ever left behind is countries looking as if they’ve been devastated by a hurricane, their leaders roasting in Dante’s Inferno. The current economic collapse of Venezuela, once the world’s largest oil producer, is the most recent warning.

The Democratic Party’s open Marxism is a national emergency.

EXCLUSIVE: Proof China, Russia Hacked 2020 Election: IP Addresses In China, Russia, Hong Kong, Germany, Canada, Czech Republic Hacked PA, NV, MI, GA Battleground States Raw Data Analytics Show


By Mary Fanning and Alan Jones | January 11, 2021

Raw data analytics exclusively obtained by The American Report show that during the 2020 presidential election internet protocol (IP) addresses in China, Russia, Hong Kong, Germany, Canada, and the Czech Republic hacked into IP addresses in the battleground states of Pennsylvania, Nevada, Michigan and Georgia.

IP addresses owned by Chinese telecom enterprise Huawei Cloud and Huawei’s headquarters hacked into IP addresses in Pennsylvania on November 3, 2020, the data analysis shows.  A Huawei-owned IP address also hacked an IP address in Michigan.

IP addresses owned by Chinese state-owned telecommunications operator China Unicom also hacked into IP addresses in Pennsylvania on November 3.

IP addresses owned by Chinese internet provider ChinaNet hacked into IP addresses in Nevada on November 3, according to the data analysis.

Aliyun Computing Co. owns several IP addresses that hacked into IP addresses in Michigan on November 3, the data analysis shows. Aliyun, also known as Alibaba Cloud, “is the cloud computing unit of Alibaba Group,” according to TechCrunch.

Alibaba founder Jack Ma has not been seen for weeks.

Eugene Kasperky, the CEO of Kaspersky Lab, served in the Soviet military intelligence service and is a graduate of The Technical Faculty of the KGB Higher School, now known as Institute of Cryptography, Telecommunications and Computer Science, part of the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation, widely known as the FSB.

Natalya Kaspersky is now the CEO of Russia’s InfoWatch Group and has a reported net worth of $270 million. “Natalya Kaspersky’s Snoop-Proof Phone Helps Putin Thwart Spies,” according to Bloomberg.

President Trump banned Kaspersky from all U.S. government networks when he signed the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). “The ban, included as part of a broader defense policy spending bill that Trump signed, reinforces a directive issued by the Trump administration in September that civilian agencies remove Kaspersky Lab software within 90 days,” Reuters reported on December 12, 2017. “The law applies to both civilian and military networks.” U.S. District Court Judge for the U.S. District of the District of Columbia Colleen Kollar-Kotelly, former Presiding Judge of the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA Court), upheld President Trump’s ban after Kaspersky Labs sued the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

“Christopher Krebs, a senior cyber security official at the Department of Homeland Security, told reporters that nearly all government agencies had fully removed Kaspersky products from their networks in compliance with the September order,” according to the Reuters report. President Trump “terminated” Krebs in mid-November 2020 after Krebs claimed the 2020 election was the most secure election in history.

An IP address owned by the University of Stuttgart, a research university in Germany, also hacked into an IP address in Michigan on November 3, according to the analysis.

Amazon Data Services in Toronto, Canada owns an IP address that hacked into a Michigan IP address on November 3, according to the analysis.

Dominion Voting Services is based in Toronto. Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a major provider of cloud services for U.S. elections.

“Scytl products and services are hosted on Amazon Web Services,” according to Scytl.

IP addresses owned by Seznam, a search engine based in the Czech Republic, as well as an IP address owned by O2 Czech Republic, a Czech company offering mobile communications and internet access services, hacked into IP addresses in Michigan on November 3, the analysis shows.

China’s Shanghai UCloud Information Technology Company Limited owns an IP address that hacked into a Michigan IP address on November 3, according to the data analysis.

On November 4, 2020, Aliyun Computing Co. and ChinaNet, both based in China, hacked into IP addresses in Georgia, according to the data analysis.






Shady Biden Port Deals Placed US At Risk From Russian, Chinese Club-K Container Missiles; Biden’s TIGER Grants Set The Table For GULFTAINER

Hunter Biden Tried To Turn Over Louisiana’s Proposed Monkey Island LNG Port To Chinese Intelligence And The Chinese Army

By Mary Fanning and Alan Jones | November 2, 2020

Hunter Biden’s proposed Monkey Island, Louisiana liquified-natural-gas (LNG) port deal with communist China that Hunter Biden brokered was not the only shady U.S. strategic infrastructure seaport deal that the Bidens implemented with adversarial foreign front companies.

Image from the official website of the proposed Monkey Island LNG project

Hunter Biden’s shady port deal with CEFC China Energy, a Chinese front company connected to Chinese intelligence services and the Chinese Army, the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), were confirmed through audio recordings of Hunter Biden himself that were discovered on his laptop and were also confirmed by The New Yorker magazine.

No amount of “plausible deniability” can cover for the fact that the Bidens are compromised by Red China and deeply involved in handing over U.S. strategic seaports to shadowy foreign front companies operating on behalf of America’s most lethal adversaries, the governments of Russia and China.

Joe Biden used Department of Transportation TIGER GRANTS to set the table for GULFTAINER, a foreign company linked to Russia, China, Iran, the former Iraqi regime of Saddam Hussein and Saddam’s Iraqi WMDs, to take over shipping container terminals at two U.S. strategic seaports, one in Florida and another in Delaware.

GULFTAINER, a Middle Eastern-based seaports operator, received no-bid leases at Florida’s Port Canaveral (35 years) and Delaware’s Port of Wilmington (50 years) after those ports received infrastructure upgrades that GULFTAINER (a.k.a. GT USA) needed to operate. These port infrastructure upgrades were paid for with millions of dollars in Obama-Biden Stimulus infrastructure grants known as TIGER GRANTS (Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery Grants).

The Obama/Biden administration installed a CFIUS (Committee of Foreign Investment in the United States) ‘gatekeeper’ to ensure that GULFTAINER and their secretly-negotiated U.S. port deals were never subjected to the required CFIUS national security reviews and the required National Security Threat Analysis that involves all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies. Those security reviews were bypassed. The National Security Threat Analysis never happened. Those 17 U.S. intelligence agencies were never notified by CFIUS staff at the U.S. Treasury department that GULFTAINER was attempting to take over container terminals at strategic U.S. seaports. Or, these CFIUS staff members, whom the Obama administration had installed, were complicit.

Biden’s TIGER GRANTS Awarded To Port Canaveral And Port Of Wilmington Before GULFTAINER Won No-Bid Leases To Port Canaveral And Port Of Wilmington; GULFTAINER Owner Is Brother/Business Partner Of Saddam Hussein’s Nuclear Mastermind

GULFTAINER, the beneficiary of those Obama-Biden TIGER GRANT stimulus dollars, is owned by the United Arab Emirates government and Iraq-born oil oligarch Hamid Dhia Jafar, the brother and business partner of Saddam Hussein’s nuclear weapons mastermind Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar.

The Pentagon placed Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar on the Operation Iraqi Freedom CENTCOM ‘BLACKLIST’ of senior Saddam Hussein regime leaders wanted for capture or kill by U.S. and Coalition military forces.

GULFTAINER owner Hamid Dhia Jafar had previously been under investigation by the U.S. Treasury Department and three U.S. congressional committees for his ‘Oil-For-Superweapons’ scheme to sell Iraqi oil to fund Saddam and Dr. Jafar’s WMD programs, including nuclear weapons development and uranium enrichment operations.

Dr. Jafar also oversaw Iraqi chemical and biological warfare programs alongside Hamid Jafar’s ‘Oil-For-Superweapons’ co-conspirator Lt. Gen. Dr. Amir Al-Saadi, the father of Iraq’s chemical warfare program. Dr. Al-Saadi and Barack Obama’s Iraq billionaire patron Nadhmi Auchi were named in a 2018 lawsuit as co-conspirators in the 1988 Halabja chemical weapons genocide.

By weaponizing federal TIGER infrastructure grants, Vice President Joe Biden helped U.S. adversaries. While telling American workers that the TIGER grants were creating American jobs, Joe Biden was actually paving the way for foreign seaports operators such as GULFTAINER to take over U.S. ports. Biden ‘privatized’ America’s critical infrastructure ports through back-room no-bid deals that rolled out the red carpet for the foreign operators and compromised the national security of the United States.

By upgrading America’s critical infrastructure ports in the years and months leading up to the foreign takeover of those very same ports, Joe Biden set America up for potential “unrestricted warfare” attacks that could be exponentially more devastating than the September 11, 2001 attacks. Americans made their wishes known back in 2006 during the Dubai Ports World debacle by rejecting the idea of a Middle Eastern company operating American ports.

Within that same timeframe, just before GULFTAINER initiated secret negotiations, code-named ‘Project Pelican,’ for Port Canaveral cargo container operations, Russia announced that it had acquired a new weapon, the Trojan Horse Club-K Container Missile System. In the aftermath of Russia’s Club-K announcement, GULFTAINER entered into a joint venture with state-owned ROSTEC/ROSOBORONEXPORT, Russia’s exporter of the Club-K.

During this same time period, GULFTAINER became a part-owner of Russia’s Port of Ust Luga, one of twelve Russian ports authorized to handle nuclear materials. ROSOBORONEXPORT has recently used the Port of Ust Luga to ship Russian missiles to China.

On the same day that Delaware officials with Diamond State Port Corporation voted to lease the Port of Wilmington to GULFTAINER, President Trump imposed sanctions on ROSOBORONEXPORT.

The Club-K is a Russian cruise missile launching system that looks identical to a standard commercial intermodal shipping container. The Club-K launches Russian Kalibr cruise missiles that can deliver nuclear, EMP, chemical, biological, and conventional payloads. The Club-K’s missiles achieve supersonic speed during the terminal phase of travel toward their targets and can destroy an aircraft carrier from 200 miles away.  Unfortunately, U.S. missile defenses are oriented outward to detect missiles launched from outside the United States, not missiles launched from inside the United States.

Shortly before Project Pelican negotiations began, the Jacksonville Business Journal exposed GULFTAINER’s attempt to pay $250 million under the table in exchange for becoming a secret, silent partner at Florida’s Port of Jacksonville. The Port of Jacksonville is in close proximity to Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay. The exposure of GULFTAINER’s under-the-table payment collapsed the Jafars’ planned deal at the Port of Jacksonville. Convicted felon Corrine Brown was involved with the duplicitous Port of Jacksonville deal.

TIGER GRANTS managed by Joe Biden were awarded to the Port of Jacksonville, Port Canaveral, and the Port of Wilmington.

Joe Biden Managed Millions of Dollars In TIGER Port Infrastructure Grants That Helped GULFTAINER, The Seaports Management Company Linked To China, Iraqi WMDs, and Russia, Take Over U.S. Critical Infrastructure Strategic Ports; In Military Jargon, Joe Biden Brought America’s Enemies ‘Inside The Wire’

President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden established the TIGER GRANT program in 2009 under the umbrella of the so-called Recovery Act. Biden and Obama quickly began steering millions of taxpayer dollars through the U.S. Department of Transportation to seaport and container terminal projects that would later benefit GULFTAINER.

GULFTAINER operates as a front company for U.S. adversaries.

President Barack H. Obama, speaking before a crowd of dignitaries at the Port of Wilmington, Delaware, on July 17, 2014, announced:

Thanks to a competitive grant program called TIGER—a program, by the way, that was part of the Recovery Act that we initiated when I first came into office and Joe Biden helped to manage—this port is rebuilding a wharf that will finally let Wilmington compete with other ports for the biggest cargo ships. [Applause] For the biggest cargo ships.

Vice President Joe Biden, during a visit to the Port of Baltimore alongside U.S. Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx, announced that “TIGER Grants were conceived by our administration to build a 21st century infrastructure, a 21st century economy.”

However, that 21st century infrastructure ended up in the hands of foreign companies instead of American companies. Those foreign companies subsequently gave some of the port jobs to foreign workers who were awarded special work visas. Joe Biden was not working on behalf of the American people.

GULFTAINER’s Connections To Communist China

The UAE government that partially owns GULFTAINER entered into a joint venture with China’s state-owned shipping company COSCO, granting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) control of the UAE’s Port of Abu Dhabi for a period of 35 years.

The Obama administration granted GULFTAINER partners Hamid Dhia Jafar and Muhammad Al-Qassimi, the Emir of Sharjah in the UAE, a 35-year container terminal lease at Florida’s Port Canaveral.

The UAE’s COSCO-controlled Port of Abu Dhabi is now part of China’s One Belt One Road Initiative. China is the only foreign country that the UAE allows to operate a port inside the Emirates.

The New York Times reported in 2003:

For two years before the American invasion of Iraq, Mr. Hussein’s sons, generals and front companies were engaged in lengthy negotiations with North Korea, according to computer files discovered by international inspectors and the accounts of Bush administration officials …

… the goal was to obtain a full production line to manufacture, under an Iraqi flag, the North Korean [Rodong a.k.a. No-dong] missile system, which would be capable of hitting American allies and bases around the region …

According to the CSIS Missile Defense Project, “numerous reports suggest that the North Koreans received [No-dong missile] assistance from Russian and Chinese scientists.”

Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar was seeking a delivery system for his miniaturized nuclear weapon known as ‘Beach Ball.’

Gulftainer parent company Crescent Enterprises, led by Badr Jafar, is a partial owner of Gama Aviation and has been involved with Gama since 2006. In 2019, Hutchison Whampoa China increased its stake in Gama Aviation to 30 percent.The Iraqi Jafar family that owns GULFTAINER is partnered with the Chinese government through Hutchison Whampoa.

Hutchison Whampoa scans U.S.- bound cargo containers at the Port of Freeport, Bahamas, an arrangement that experts consider to be a national security risk for the United States.

Newsmax reported in 2006:

Asia’s richest man, Li [Ka-Shing] owns Hutchison Whampoa. He is well known outside of financial circles, having attracted the attention of the U.S. military in a top-secret document drawn up in 1999 during his successful bid to buy the Panama Canal ports.

According to the October 1999 “intelligence assessment” prepared by the U.S. military’s Southern Command, the Hong Kong billionaire is a “threat” to U.S. national security…

…  According to a 1999 investigative report by the American Foreign Policy Council, “Hutchison Whampoa, through its Hutchison International Terminals subsidiary or Panama Ports Co., has substantial links to the Chinese communist government and the People’s Liberation Army.”

Both Russia’s Club-K Container Missile System and China’s version of the Club-K, the YJ-18C container missile, are Trojan Horse advanced weapon systems disguised as commercial intermodal shipping containers.

In an interesting side note, China is now producing toy models of the Club-K, that makes a nice trophy for many CCP families.

China’s massive military programs and China’s Belt and Road Initiative by which China is taking over seaports around the world were made possible by Joe Biden, who as a U.S. Senator, fought hard to grant China entry into the World Trade Organization (WTO) and to receive Most Favored Nation trade status, leaving China flush with cash that the communist regime now uses to prepare for military attacks against the United States and U.S. allies such as Taiwan and South Korea. China’s new found wealth enables it to build and manufacture China’s version of the Club-K.

Bill Gertz reported in the Washington Free Beacon in March 2019:

China is building a long-range cruise missile fired from a shipping container that could turn Beijing’s large fleet of freighters into potential warships and commercial ports into future missile bases.

The new missile is in flight testing and is a land-attack variant of an advanced anti-ship missile called the YJ-18C, according to American defense officials.

The missile will be deployed in launchers that appear from the outside to be standard international shipping containers used throughout the world for moving millions of tons of goods, often on the deck of large freighters.

The YJ-18C is China’s version of the Club-K cruise missile built by Russia that also uses a launcher disguised as a shipping container.

Joe Biden brought dangerous adversaries inside the wire of America’s critical infrastructure ports, violating the dictates set forth in Sun Tzu’s book “The Art of War.” Joe Biden’s actions went well beyond the point where plausible deniability would be a credible excuse.

Military academies throughout the world teach young officers about the ancient Chinese master military strategist Sun Tzu.

Joe Biden, in a stealth manner, brought the enemy inside the wire. Considering Sun Tzu’s maxim on warfare being based upon deception, and the exposure of the Biden family’s connections to Chinese intelligence services and to the Chinese military, one has to ask for whom does Joe Biden work.

It is almost as if Sun Tzu, thousands of years ago, had envisioned Joe Biden’s TIGER Grant operation for Gulftainer in concert with Russia’s Club-K Container Missile System.

“All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.” – Sun Tzu

Considering Sun Tzu’s maxim on deception, Joe Biden’s deals with the Chinese communists, and Biden’s efforts to rebuild U.S. ports in anticipation of foreign takeovers, a serious investigation should commence regarding GULFTAINER’s U.S. port leases. Had any of these port deals received the legally-mandated CFIUS National Security Threat Analysis, Joe Biden could not have gotten away with these blatant acts of treason.



Construction Of GULFTAINER’s Edgemoor, Delaware Container Terminal To Expand The Port Of Wilmington Must Be Blocked On National Security Grounds

By Mary Fanning and Alan Jones | October 25, 2020

Diamond State Port Corporation’s proposal to allow United Arab Emirates-based seaports management company GULFTAINER, through its subsidiary GT USA Wilmington LLC, to build a new container terminal along the Delaware River in Edgemoor, Delaware on the site of the former Chemours-Dupont titanium plant, presents a clear and present danger to the national security of the United States due to GULFTAINER’s extensive, decades-long derogatory national security profile.

The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC), a law enforcement agency tasked with protecting Delaware’s state parks and the health and safety of Delawarians, has a moral and legal obligation to protect the citizens of Delaware and the United States from GULFTAINER and its parent organization THE CRESCENT GROUP OF COMPANIES.

THE CRESCENT GROUP’s principals who reside in the UAE are actively working with America’s adversaries Iran, China, and Russia.

GULFTAINER’s Iraqi-born principals Hamid Dhia Jafar and Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar have for decades been involved in the financing, design, construction, storage, transportation, concealment, and proliferation of nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons of mass destruction (WMD). Some of those WMDs have already wounded American troops and killed many innocent civilians.

As of 2010, GULFTAINER gained access to an advanced delivery system for those WMDs when GULFTAINER entered into a half billion dollar joint venture with Russian state-owned weapons conglomerate ROSTEC / ROSOBORONEXPORT that exports the Club-K Container Missile Launching System. The GULFTAINER – ROSTEC joint venture is called GULFTAINER RUSSIAN TECHNOLOGIES.

GULFTAINER CEO Peter Richards: GULFTAINER RUSSIAN TECHNOLOGIES Is Building The ‘Gateway To Moscow’ At Russia’s Baltic Sea Port Of Ust Luga

British-based Port Strategy Magazine, quoting GT USA CEO Peter Alexander Richards, reported in 2013:

The Port of Ust-Luga is one of Russia’s largest infrastructure projects; the YUG-2 terminal is the first venture of Gulftainer Russian Technologies, the joint venture created in 2011 by Gulftainer and Prominvest, the financial and investment arm of Russian Technologies [ROSTEC]…

…Ust-Luga is a key port gateway in the heart of Russia’s buoyant Baltic Western region, says Mr Richards. “It is envisioned that the YUG-2 terminal will supplement St Petersburg and act as a gateway to Moscow.”

Russia’s ROSOBORONEXPORT is currently exporting Russian S-400 missiles to China through Russia’s Port of Ust Luga.

China is preparing to use the S-400 missiles to shoot down Taiwanese aircraft as they take off during a planned Chinese military invasion of Taiwan, according to recent reports.

GULFTAINER currently operates the entire Port of Wilmington under a 50-year lease awarded to GULFTAINER in 2018 by the State of Delaware’s Diamond State Port Corporation.

Diamond State Port Corporation is the owner of the Port of Wilmington and the Edgemoor property where GULFTAINER plans to build a new container terminal as part of a proposed Port of Wilmington expansion.

When GULFTAINER received both its 35-year container terminal lease at Florida’s Port Canaveral in 2014 (secretly negotiated in an covert operation code-named ‘Project Pelican’) and its 50-year lease of Delaware’s entire Port of Wilmington in 2018, GULFTAINER did not undergo the required 30 and 45-day Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) reviews and the required National Security Threat Analysis by 17 U.S. intelligence agencies. This was an egregious national security lapse.

Had GULFTAINER undergone the required CFIUS reviews and National Security Threat Analysis, the following derogatory national security information would have come to light:

GULFTAINER has extensive ties to:  (i) the former Iraqi regime of Saddam Hussein, (ii) the Hussein regime’s covert Iraqi weapons of mass destruction programs, (iii) Iraqi nuclear weapons and uranium enrichment mastermind Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar, the brother and business partner of GULFTAINER owner Hamid Dhia Jafar, (iv) Iraqi chemical weapons mastermind and “Superweapons” Czar Lt. Gen. Dr. Amir Al-Saadi, (who was also Gulftainer owner Hamid Dhia Jafar’s ‘Oil-For-Superweapons’ co-conspirator) (v) Saddam Hussein’s clandestine overseas terror squad Unit 999 (vi), Russian Prime Minister-turned-President Vladimir Putin, (vii) Putin’s longtime “number two,” former KGB officer Igor Sechin who oversaw ROSNEFT deals with Hamid Dhia Jafar’s Crescent Petroleum, (viii) Russia’s military industrial complex and intelligence services, (ix) Russian state-owned weapons company ROSTEC/ROSOBORONEXPORT that entered into a joint venture with GULFTAINER called GULFTAINER RUSSIAN TECHNOLOGIES that exports the CLUB-K CONTAINER MISSILE SYSTEM, (x) China, (xi) North Korea, (xii) rogue Pakistani nuclear scientist A. Q. Khan, (xiii) Sudan, (xiv) Iran, and (xv) to Iran’s state-owned ocean shipping line IRISL that covertly supported Iran’s nuclear program in violation of U.S. sanctions.

While the above list of critical national security concerns regarding GULFTAINER should be sufficient cause to immediately cancel GULFTAINER’s proposed Edgemoor container terminal project, GULFTAINER’s derogatory national security profile is far more extensive, as this document will outline.

GULFTAINER Russian Technologies, The Joint Venture Between GULFTAINER And ROSTEC / ROSOBORONEXPORT, Exporter Of Russia’s Club-K Container Missile System

The Iraqi Jafar brothers are closely connected to the Iranian regime and two of the most powerful ex-KGB agents in the world, Vladimir Putin, and Putin’s number two, Igor Sechin, considered by some Russia watchers to be even more powerful than Putin. Sechin, who like his oil partners the Iranian regime, conducts business with the Iraqi Jafar family and their oil conglomerate Crescent Petroleum, is known as ‘Russia’s Darth Vader’ and “the scariest man on earth.”

GULFTAINER entered a $500 million joint venture called GULFTAINER Russian Technologies with Russian state-owned weapons and technology company ROSTEC, the 100 percent owner of the Russian government’s official weapons exporting company ROSOBORONEXPORT.

ROSOBORONEXPORT exports Russia’s Trojan Horse advanced weapons system known as the Club-K Container Missile System.

Russia’s Club-K looks identical to any standard intermodal cargo container — the type of metal shipping boxes that GULFTAINER handles at 40 percent of ports across the Middle East and now at two strategic U.S. seaports, Florida’s Port Canaveral and Delaware’s Port of Wilmington.

Russia’s Club-K, however, is actually an advanced satellite-activated weapons system capable of launching Russian Kalibr cruise missiles armed with nuclear, electromagnetic pulse (EMP), chemical, biological, and conventional payloads. “‘This Club-K is game-changing with the ability to wipe out an aircraft carrier 200 miles away,’ said Robert Hewson, editor of Jane’s Air-Launched Weapons, which first reported on the Club-K developments,’” according to The Telegraph.

“Russia’s military is now more capable than at any time since the end of the Cold War,” Bloomberg reported on September 30, 2020, citing a new report from British think tank International Institute for Strategic Studies.

Russia is equipping new naval ships including corvettes and icebreakers with Club-K units.  Sea trials are underway, Russian press outlet TASS boasted in August 2020.

Gulftainer owner Hamid Dhia Jafar’s brother and business partner Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar was a senior member of Saddam Hussein’s cabinet and Saddam Hussein’s Presidential Nuclear Adviser as well as Saddam’s Deputy Minister of Industry and Military Industrialization.

Dr. Jafar also had oversight of the Iraqi Directorate of General Military Intelligence (DGMI) Unit 999 special operations and terrorism troops that, with technical assistance from Russian KGB, SVR, and GRU advisers, helped Dr. Jafar to conceal and transfer abroad his nuclear, chemical, and biological WMD programs.

Dr. Jafar can be heard speaking with Saddam Hussein on the ‘Saddam Tapes.’ The ‘Saddam Tapes’ are secret Iraqi government audio recordings of Saddam’s cabinet meetings that were captured by Coalition Forces during Operation Iraqi Freedom.

On the “Saddam Tapes,” Saddam Hussein and his senior cabinet members were heard musing about detonating a nuclear weapon in Washington D.C. One of the foremost leaders in Saddam’s cabinet was his nuclear mastermind Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar.

When someone tells you that they want to kill you, believe them. When one of those people making a nuclear threat against the United States is a declared enemy combatant on the Pentagon’s ‘BLACKLIST,’ one might pay strict attention.

Aviation and cargo security expert Glen Winn, who is also a former Secret Service agent, asserted that “while we may not be able to check every cargo container coming into the country without bringing global commerce to a standstill, it is imperative that the lessees to America’s ports receive the proper National Security Threat Analysis. That is the point at which you maintain your national security.”

U.S. Missile Defense Systems Look Outward, Giving Russia’s Trojan Horse Club-K Container Missile System An Advantage

Just one Club-K Container Missile System could launch an EMP attack that could disable America’s power grid and impede America’s ability to respond with a retaliatory strike.

In theory, Russia and other adversaries could carry out a coordinated first strike surge attack from hundreds or even thousands of Club-K Container Missile Systems secreted behind U.S. missile defenses. Additional missile salvos could be launched from Russian Club-K units in Mexico and from merchant ships and submarines off the U.S. coasts. Likely targets would be U.S. Navy submarine bases in Kitsap, Washington and Kings Bay, Georgia, U.S. Air Force strategic bomber air bases, command and control bases, and the Boeing E4B airborne command 747s.

The Club-K has a ten year shelf life. Club-K units can be remotely activated via satellite. After Club-K units enter U.S. seaports, they can be transported to every hamlet in America via rail, riverine boats, and semi tractor trailer trucks. It is not simply America’s seaports and military bases that are at risk of attack by the Club-K, but rather, the entirety of United States.

Translations from a Russian defense journal and from a secret Iranian military handbook suggest that Russia and Iran have developed a Pearl Harbor 2.0 plan to sink the entire U.S. Navy fleet as part of coordinated asymmetrical attacks against the United States and U.S. military bases around the world.

The plan is to launch Russian Kalibr cruise missiles from submarines, freighter ships, and Trojan Horse Club-K Container Missile System intermodal cargo “containers” that can be smuggled into U.S. ports and moved into the U.S. interior aboard trains and semi-trucks.

In 2015 the Russian journal “Natsionalnaya Oborona” (translation: National Defense) outlined a plan to “hit them in their ports” with Kalibr cruise missiles that could sink entire US Navy fleets docked in ports across the United States, Europe, and the Middle East.

Dr. Joseph F. King, the former Chief of the National Security Section at the Department of Homeland Security’s New York City office, was assigned responsibility for all weapons of mass destruction (WMD) issues, including nuclear, chemical, biological (NBC), in the New York metropolitan area following 9/11 and had previously been stationed in Lebanon.

In an exclusive interview with The American Report, Dr. King stated:

The detailed information that has been amassed regarding Project Pelican makes it clear that the threats to our Ports and Terminals, our first line of defense, and the corruption and criminal conduct in these conspiracies, surpass the scope of the “Iran Contra” and “Whitewater” affairs combined.

I find it mind-boggling that this Byzantine attack on our national security has been swept under the rug by the previous administration. I hope that someone in the Trump administration will pursue this dangerous and criminal attack on our Ports and Terminals and ultimately our national security so that, unlike Churchill, we will not have to fight them on our beaches.

Because of Gulftainer’s entrée into the global ports business, and U.S. ports in particular, GULFTAINER’s $500 million joint venture with Russian state-owned weapons company ROSTEC/ROSOBORONEXPORT is of particular interest.

ROSOBORONEXPORT is the exporter of Russia’s Club-K Container Missile System, a Trojan Horse advanced cruise missile launching platform that is visually indistinguishable from the thousands of commercial intermodal shipping containers GULFTAINER handles at the Port of Wilmington and plans to handle at GULFTAINER’s proposed Edgemoor container terminal.

GULFTAINER presents an existential security risk to Delaware, the United States, and the United States military.

President Trump imposed sanctions on GULFTAINER’s Russian joint venture partner ROSOBORONEXPORT on April 6, 2018, the exact same date on which the board members of Diamond State Port Corporation voted unanimously to lease the Port of Wilmington to GULFTAINER for 50 years. The legality of GULFTAINER’s presence in the United States is certainly questionable.

Neither the United States nor Delaware can afford the risk that GULFTAINER presents with the very real possibility that GULFTAINER may smuggle Club-K “container” units through the Port of Wilmington or the proposed Edgemoor container terminal.

From those Club-K ‘containers,’ U.S. adversaries could remotely launch Russian cruise missiles armed with nuclear, electromagnetic pulse (EMP), chemical, biological, and conventional payloads against U.S. military bases including Delaware’s Dover Air Force Base and major American cities including Philadelphia, New York City, and Washington D.C.

GULFTAINER recently showed its true colors during the initial months of the Covid-19 pandemic when GULFTAINER not only attempted to extort a million dollars but illegally blockaded hundreds of gas station and convenience store chain Wawa’s fuel tanker trucks from transiting through the Port of Wilmington to their tank farm. GULFTAINER’s menacing actions disrupted hundreds of Wawa fuel deliveries per day across five Northeastern states — Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia.

GULFTAINER Is Connected Through The Iraqi Jafar Family And Iraq’s WMD Programs To 100 Percent Of The Countries Currently Designated By The U.S. State Department As State Sponsors Of Terrorism

GULFTAINER, either directly or through the former Iraqi weapons of mass destruction programs with which GULFTAINER was connected for decades, has ties with four out of four, or 100 percent, of the countries currently designated by the U.S. State Department as State Sponsors of Terrorism:

Country                             Designation Date

Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea)     November 20, 2017

Iran                                 January 19, 1984

Sudan                                 August 12, 1993

Syria                                 December 29, 1979

In addition, Iraq under the regime of Saddam Hussein, with which GULFTAINER (founded in 1976) was deeply connected, was previously designated by the State Department as a State Sponsor of Terrorism from1979 until 2004.

GULFTAINER Lied About Its True Ownership:  GULFTAINER’s Foreign Owners Include A Foreign Government — The UAE:


  • Hamid Dhia Jafar, The Brother And Business Partner Of Rogue Nuclear Physicist Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar, Saddam Hussein’s Nuclear Weapons And Uranium Enrichment Mastermind; Dr. Jafar Was On DoD CENTCOM ‘BLACKLIST

  • Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Ruler Of Sharjah, UAE And One Of The Seven Ruling SheikhsThat Control The UAE Government

According to World Bank International Finance Corporation (IFC) documents, GULFTAINER is owned by two shareholders, Hamid Dhia Jafar and Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, the Ruler Of Sharjah, UAE.

GULFTAINER did not disclose in its Port Canaveral and Port of Wilmington lease agreements that the company is partially owned by the Ruler of Sharjah, and therefore partially owned by the UAE government.

GULFTAINER’s Connection To Iran Through GSCCO, KGL, And Iran’s Shipping Line IRISL

GULFTAINER, through GULFTAINER’s consortium Gulf Stevedoring Contracting Company (GSCCO), was in partnership with the Iranian state-owned container shipping line The Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Line Group (IRISL) which acts as the primary shipping line for Iran’s covert nuclear weapons program. The Trump administration placed IRISL under secondary U.S. Treasury Department sanctions, effective June 2020.

Gulftainer is the majority owner of Gulf Stevedoring Contracting Co. Ltd (GSCCO).

Gulftainer owns 51% of GSCCO. KGL (Kuwait & Gulf Link) co-founded and partially owns GSCCO with Gulftainer. KGL executives and board members, it was revealed in an American court, were deeply involved in secret container ship operations with IRISL and were under FBI and DoD investigation for money laundering and sanctions violations.

KGL officials worked closely with a top IRISL executive who was placed under sanctions as a Specially Designated National (SDN) by the U.S. Treasury Department and was separately indicted for conspiracy by U.S. District Attorney Cyrus Vance in Manhattan on June 20, 2011

KGL owns 51% of Combined Shipping Company (CSC). IRISL subsidiary VALFAJR owns the remaining 49% of Combined Shipping Company (CSC). CSC and VALFAJR own RAK Shipping, named after the UAE’s RAK Emirate.

On June 8, 2020, the Trump administration’s Treasury Department announced that “today, sanctions against the Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Lines (IRISL) and its Shanghai [China]-based subsidiary, E-Sail Shipping Company Ltd (E-Sail) have come into effect.”

“The US Treasury Department on June 8 [2020] designated 121 tankers, container ships and other vessels owned or tied to Iranian shipper IRISL for additional secondary sanctions,” according to S&P Global.

UAE Signs Port Deal With China’s COSCO

While we know that GULFTAINER is partially owned by the UAE government, it is important to note that the UAE government recently signed a joint-venture with Chinese state-owned shipping line COSCO. The UAE-COSCO port concession, known as COSCO Shipping Ports Ltd – Abu Dhabi, transferred control of a container terminal at the UAE’s Port of Abu Dhabi to China’s state-owned enterprise COSCO for 35 years.

The UAE’s Port of Abu Dhabi is now part of China’s One Belt One Road Initiative that has seized control of global trade routes and continues to build seaports across the globe to accommodate the communist superpower’s rapidly expanding fleet of Chinese Navy warships and submarines. China now has the largest navy in the world, with more ships than the U.S. Navy. GULFTAINER’s partial owner, the Ruler of Sharjah, is one of the seven members of the UAE Royal Family of Emirs who comprise the UAE’s totalitarian federation of seven monarchies.

In 2019, the Trump administration forced COSCO to sell its Long Beach Container Terminal at the Port of Long Beach, near the Port of Los Angeles, due to U.S. national security concerns.

Robert Sheridan, a former US Customs Investigator, told the Associated Press:

The last area that really brings it all together, I think, is having foreigners knowing how, even having an inkling of how the United States scrutinises containers from a security standpoint, the various layers of security. And I think that’s also a concern. No matter what the host country says that they’ve assured the American government that they’re following American guidelines, and what have you, there’s always a breakdown in language, there’s always a breakdown for nefarious purposes, and you have a problem. That’s where I see it.

And China has been known to have acquired critical technology from the United States illegally. And they still have a strong presence. Having said that, having a company controlled by the Chinese government through the arm of the PRC (People’s Republic of China) Army, I think is an opportunity, again, to set up an espionage apparatus.

Hutchison Whampoa is controlled by the Chinese government. And if you don’t have somebody there that’s from America whose an American employee of the Customs Service or the Coast Guard, whoever they want to put over there, however they want to name them, that’s representing America’s interest, there’s a chance for it to go haywire.

Late Iranian General Soleimani Made Serious Threat Against The United States 

On July 26, 2018, Iranian Major General Qassem Soleimani, the “Shadow Commander” in charge of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Quds Force that conducts clandestine operations for Iran, threatened President Trump and the United States. Soleimani warned America that Iran would “destroy all that you possess” and quoted ancient Chinese military strategist Sun Tzu. “You know our power in the region and our capabilities in asymmetric war…I’m telling you, Mr. Trump the gambler, I am telling you: know that where you are not thinking of, we are near you. Places you cannot imagine, we are next to you.”

While General Soleimani was permanently taken off the battlefield by President Trump, Soleimiani led Iran’s Quds Force that remains an active threat to the United States.

EMP expert Dr. Peter Vincent Pry warned in an April 26, 2020 Newsmax article:

On Weds. April 22, [2020 — three months after President Trump killed General Soleimani] Iran successfully orbited its first military satellite, launched by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), the world’s most powerful state-sponsored terrorist organization…

… Trajectory of the IRGC’s “Nour” (“Light”) satellite overflies the United States from south to north, from the U.S. blind and defenseless side where there are no Ballistic Missile Early Warning System radars and no National Missile Defense interceptors…

… If nuclear-armed for electromagnetic pulse attack, Nour could project an EMP field covering most of North America, potentially blacking-out power grids and other critical infrastructures that support electronic civilization and the lives of 330 million Americans.

Gulftainer affiliate Crescent Petroleum’s former Head of Strategic Planning was a former Iranian military officer. Crescent Petroleum maintained an office on Africa Expressway in Tehran, in defiance of U.S. sanctions against Iran.

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), while serving as Representative Sanders (I-VT) on the House Financial Services Committee, passionately opposed on national security grounds the 2006 Dubai Ports World deal that would have handed over six major US seaports to the UAE government.

Rep. Sanders grilled a senior Treasury Department official involved in CFIUS who was testifying about U.S. Seaport Operations and the Dubai Ports World deal:

At a time when we are spending billions of dollars trying to protect the American people from terrorism, I cannot understand how the Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States [CFIUS] would OK a deal that would put the operations of major American ports into the hands of a company that is wholly owned by United Arab Emirates government…

… The United Arab Emirates government had direct ties to Osama bin Laden and was one of three countries in the world to recognize the Taliban government of Afghanistan. At least two 9/11 hijackers came from the United Arab Emirates. According to the FBI, money was transferred to the 9/11 hijackers through the UAE banking system. After 9/11, the Treasury Department reported that the UAE was not cooperating in efforts to track down Osama bin Laden’s bank accounts. The UAE has been a key transfer point for illegal shipments of nuclear components to Iran, North Korea, and Libya. Further, there are as I understand it, no democratic institutions in the United Arab Emirates … and yesterday we learned that the parent company of Dubai Ports World is honoring an Arab boycott of Israel…

… The 9/11 Commission reported that a United States missile strike intended for Osama bin Laden had to be called off in 1999 because members of the United Arab Emirates Royal Family and government officials were at Bin Laden’s hunting camp in Afghanistan. In other words, we could have killed Osama bin Laden over two years before 9/11 if we were not concerned about harming the royal family of the UAE.

Can any of you tell the American people the names of the government officials or royal family who enjoyed hunting trips together with Osama bin Laden?

Further, can you tell us that these very same officials will not be involved in the UAE government-run Dubai Ports World which will have ownership over six major American ports?

Senator Harry Reid (D-NV), Senate Minority Leader, asked on the Senate floor:

Do we want a country that was a staging ground for the 9/11 terrorists? Do we want a country owning one of our seaports who was instrumental in allowing devices to make nuclear weapons go through its seaports to other parts of the world? The answer Mr. President is no, we do not want that.

Biographies of Iraqi Brothers And Business Partners GULFTAINER Owner Hamid Dhia Jafar and Saddam Hussein’s Nuclear Weapons Mastermind Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar

Hamid Dhia Jafar, born in Baghdad, Iraq in 1947, is the owner of GULFTAINER. Hamid Dhia Jafar the Chairman of the Board of the Crescent Group of Companies, a Middle Eastern conglomerate controlled by the Iraqi Jafar family and based in the UAE’s Sharjah emirate. The Crescent Group owns GULFTAINER, GULFTAINER subsidiary GT USA, Crescent Petroleum, Uruk Project Development Company, and other Crescent Group subsidiaries.

Hamid Dhia Jafar is the brother and business partner of rogue nuclear physicist Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar, who was born in Baghdad, Iraq in 1943. Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar is the former Vice Chairman of the Iraq Atomic Energy Commission and the former chief of Saddam Hussein’s covert nuclear weapons program, code-named Petrochemicals Project/3 (PC3). Dr. Jafar is often referred to as “the father of Iraq’s nuclear program.’ Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar was also the principal architect of Saddam Hussein’s clandestine uranium enrichment program that produced weapons-grade uranium for use in Iraqi nuclear bombs.

Dr. Jafar’s expansive nuclear weapons program had 20,000 employees, 7,000 of whom were scientists and engineers. “Jafar’s empire included more than two dozen weapons plants, most of them clustered around Baghdad. He managed a legion of employees and remarkable laboratories that concentrated exclusively on fissile materials and their weaponization” according to the book Critical Mass: The Dangerous Race for Superweapons in a Fragmenting World.

NBC News referred to Dr. Jafar as “a combination of Lawrence of Arabia and Dr. Strangelove who mixes Muslim fatalism, Arab nationalism, and modern technocracy.”

Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar also oversaw technology transfer operations in support of Iraq’s chemical and biological warfare programs, according to CIA documents.

Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar is the CEO of GULFTAINER affiliate Uruk Project Development Company, establishing not only a direct Iraqi family connection, but also a direct business connection between GULFTAINER, the lessee of Delaware’s proposed Edgemoore container terminal site and Saddam Hussein’s extensive weapons of mass destruction programs.

The United States Secretary of Defense placed Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar’s name on U.S. Central Command’s classified Operation Iraqi Freedom Blacklist of senior Saddam Hussein regime officials that U.S. military and Coalition partners were tasked with capturing, and in the case that U.S. or coalition service members faced resistance, to engage with lethal military force.

The image below shows Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar’s name on the U.S. Defense Department’s now-declassified ‘BLACKLIST’:

Dr. Jafar designed and built Saddam’s ‘Arab Bomb,’ the Iraqi miniaturized nuclear weapon known as ‘Beach Ball.’ Saddam Hussein, according to the book Brighter Than the Baghdad Sun: Saddam Hussein’s Nuclear Threat to the United States, planned to conceal one of Dr. Jafar’s ‘Beach Balls’ aboard a cargo ship, and sail it into Israel’s Port of Haifa, which is often visited by U.S. Navy warships and submarines. Saddam planned to detonate Dr. Jafar’s nuclear weapon in Israel’s port.

Like Saddam, GULFTAINER has a particular affinity for positioning its container terminals near U.S. Navy ships and submarines, especially U.S. Navy ballistic submarines armed with Trident II ballistic missiles that comprise America’s last line of nuclear deterrence and defense against China and Russia. GULFTAINER maintains a very close and long-time association with Russia, a relationship that dates back into the Soviet era.

From 2012 to 2014, GULFTAINER executed its secretly-negotiated operation ‘Project Pelican.’

Initially, GULFTAINER attempted to take over container terminal operations at Florida’s Port of Jacksonville, in a $250 million under-the-table scheme that would have made GULFTAINER a secret, silent partner at the port.

The Port of Jacksonville is located a few miles south of Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, home of the U.S. Navy’s Atlantic fleet of Trident ballistic missile submarines. The Jacksonville deal fell through in 2012 after it was exposed by a local reporter.

In 2014, however, GULFTAINER succeeded in securing a 35-year no-bid container terminal lease at Florida’s Port Canaveral, home of another U.S. Navy submarine base and adjacent to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center.

President Barack Obama’s administration bypassed the required CFIUS National Security Threat Assessment of GULFTAINER’s ‘Project Pelican’ Port Canaveral deal.

GULFTAINER Owner Hamid Dhia Jafar’s ‘Oil-For-Superweapons’ Scheme

GULFTAINER affiliate Crescent Petroleum also provided material and financial support to Saddam Hussein’s regime in support of Iraq’s military industrial complex, and in particular, Saddam Hussein’s nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons of mass destruction programs, collectively referred to by the regime as Saddam’s “superweapons” programs.

In a letter to Crescent Petroleum owner Hamid Dhia Jafar, a copy of which was provided to United States Members of Congress investigating the military capabilities of Saddam’s Iraqi regime, was written and signed by Iraqi Lt. Gen. Dr. Amir Al-Saadi (a.k.a. al-Sadi), co-Deputy Minister of Military Industrialization (alongside Deputy Minister Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar) who also served as the head of Iraq’s chemical weapons program. Dr. Al-Saadi was #32 on the U.S. military’s most wanted list and Seven of Diamonds in the Iraqi Most Wanted Playing Cards.

Al-Saadi was recently named as a co-conspirator in a lawsuit filed on behalf of the survivors of the Halabja chemical weapons massacre.

In the below letter, Deputy Minister Lt. General Dr. Al-Saadi authorized Gulfainer owner Hamid Dhia Jafar to launch a secret Iraqi regime operation known as ‘Oil-For-Superweapons’ to illegally sell Iraqi gasoline to unwitting American motorists in order to finance Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction programs, including Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar’s covert nuclear weapons and uranium enrichment programs.

Dr. Amir al-Saadi (right) and Iraqi Ministry of Industry and Military Industrialization director Hussein Kamel al Majid to sell Iraqi oil to fund his brother Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar’s nuclear weapons program. A copy of a letter sent by al-Saadi to Hamid Jafar was provided to Members Congress, proving the deal.

GULFTAINER’s Connections To The Halabja Chemical Weapons Genocide: Saddam Hussein “Gassed His Own People”

GULFTAINER has direct ties to the architects of the 1988 Halabja chemical weapons genocide  by which Saddam Hussein’s regime used sulfer mustard and other chemical weapon agents to massacre at least 5,000 Kurdish civilians and wound 10,000 more with chemical burns, neurological damage, and other severe, permanent injuries. The Halabja chemical weapons attack also contaminated Halabja’s natural environment.

Why Was There No GULFTAINER CFIUS Review And National Security Threat Analysis: CFIUS Staff Chair Amin Nabi Mir’s Connections To Hamas And Pakistani Intelligence Service ISI

“As CFIUS Staff Chair, and then as Deputy Assistant Secretary for Investment Security at the US Department of the Treasury, Aimen served as the most senior US government career official responsible for conducting US national security reviews of foreign investment, managing the disposition of over 1,000 transactions,” according to a 2019 press release. Mir was in a position to influence GULFTAINER’s CFIUS case while overseeing CFIUS cases at the Treasury Department and during an unusual eight-month stint in 2014 at the Department of Justice National Security Division.

In the cases of both GULFTAINER’s Port of Wilmington lease and GULFTAINER’s Port Canaveral lease, U.S. Treasury Department officials incorrectly argued that GULFTAINER was not required to undergo CFIUS national security investigations and National Security Threat Analysis on the flawed legal theory that because those port agreements were leases and not purchases they were not CFIUS “covered transactions.”

Aimen Mir was the two-time president of the youth wing of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). ISNA is associated with Palestinian terror organization Hamas. ISNA was named by the U.S. Justice Department as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land terrorism support case.

The American Report wrote in October 2017:

Aimen Mir is the son of Kashmir-born physician Dr. Ghulam Nabi Mir, an ISNA Founders Committee member. Dr. Mir is also the president of the World Kashmir Awareness Forum (WKAF), an Islamic platform Dr. Mir uses to aggressively advocate for Kashmir’s secession from India in order to join Pakistan. WKAF’s Secretary General “Dr.” Syed Ghulam Nabi Fai, is a convicted felon, also from Kashmir, who served as a Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence Directorate (ISI) operative inside the United States. Fai was arrested by the FBI in 2011 for covertly operating as an unregistered foreign agent while receiving $3.5 million dollars in wire transfers from the ISI.

GULFTAINER Connected To Iraqi WMD Programs That Damaged The Environment With Radiation And Toxic Chemicals And Conducted Experiments That Tortured And Killed Killed Humans And Animals

Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar’s Iraqi biological warfare colleague Dr. Rihab Taha was known as Dr. Germ. “Iraq had decided to begin full-scale production of anthrax and botulinum toxin.  Botulinum, being a toxin, was Taha’s favorite,” NBC News reported in an article titled “The World’s Deadliest Woman?

Dr. Taha worked directly for Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar, Saddam’s Deputy Minister of Military Industrialization.

The BBC reported:

The facts are undeniable. Dr Taha’s team grew 19,000 litres of botulinum toxin, a food poison that swells the tongue and suffocates its victim.

Two thousand litres of aflatoxin were produced, which causes liver cancer. And they also prepared gas gangrene, which causes skin to melt away.

UN weapons inspectors discovered munitions filled with these agents dumped in a river, proving they had indeed been weaponised.

According to a U.S. Air Force research report, Dr. Taha:

had earlier been responsible for tests of anthrax and botulinum at Iraq’s Salman Park facility.These tests were conducted on rats, mice, rhesus monkeys, beagles and donkeys. In unreleased video tapes seized by the U.N. two years ago, the animals that had been exposed to germ agents were shown writhing and dying in agony.

“Taha was directly responsible for those tests and some believe she may also have been responsible for human trials [of biological weapons], although she and the Iraqi government deny it,” NBC News stated.

During Operation Iraqi Freedom, radioactive material from Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar’s nuclear weapons and uranium enrichment programs sickened U.S. personnel on the ground that were searching for WMDs.

The American people, including many operating within the government, have been conditioned by the media to repeat the phrase “there were no WMDs in Iraq.”

Any thorough and honest investigation of Dr. Jafar and his WMD programs will reveal that there were WMDs in Iraq and many of them remain unaccounted for. Many Iraqi WMD sites were never even located or inspected. Moreover U.S. troops were sickened after exposure to chemical weapons and radiation while operating in Iraq.

Dave Gaubatz, a civilian US federal agent with the U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations (OSI), who previously spent 20 years on active duty with the U.S. Air Force.  Agent Gaubatz was exposed to WMD in Iraq and has exclusively provided The American Report his federal worker’s compensation claim and his Defense Department Post-Deployment Health Assessment (DD Form 2796) to prove it.

The American people have an opportunity to stop the GULFTAINER container terminal project that is planned on the shores of the Delaware River. GULFTAINER presents a clear and present danger to U.S. national security.

The American people, the U.S. military, American shipping companies, American jobs, and the environment are at great risk from GULFTAINER.




Strzok’s Wife Hodgman Was Enforcement AD When SEC Dropped Insider Trading Case Against Dhia Jafar While Obama Officials Placed Jafar’s ‘U.S. Blacklisted’ Boss, Saddam’s WMD Mastermind Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar, Inside The Wire At Port Canaveral; FBI Knew

By Mary Fanning and Alan Jones | March 29, 2020

Melissa Hodgman, wife of fired FBI Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence Peter Strzok, was the assistant director of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s enforcement division in 2015 when the SEC dropped, “without explanation,” its multi-year, $3.7 million insider trading case against Dhia Jafar, a Dubai trader working for the former chief of Saddam Hussein’s nuclear weapons program, Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar.

Perplexingly, during the same time frame, Obama administration officials awarded a 35-year cargo container terminal lease at Florida’s Port Canaveral to Gulftainer, the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.) -based cargo container and seaports management company co-owned by Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar’s Iraqi brother and business partner Hamid Dhia Jafar. Hamid Dhia Jafar had decades earlier hatched an illegal scheme to finance Saddam’s and Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar’s WMD programs, in a plot known as Oil-For-Superweapons. The Iraqi Jafar brothers’ targets: the U.S. and Israel.

Options trader Dhia Jafar is the General Manager of Gulftainer affiliate Uruk Project Management Company where he works for CEO and Co-Founder of Uruk Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar, a rogue Iraqi nuclear physicist with the same name as the trader. Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar is widely recognized as “The Father of Iraq’s Nuclear Program” and “The Father of Iraq’s Uranium Enrichment Program.”

Hodgman’s unfaithful husband Peter Strzok, as one of the FBI’s top counterintelligence officials with specialized experience in Russia and in the use of weapons of mass destruction by terrorists inside the United States, should have been acutely aware of and should have blocked Gulftainer from setting up operations in the United States, particularly inside the wire of a critical infrastructure port housing berths used by U.S. Navy submarines, U.S. Military Sealift Command, and the U.S. Coast Guard. The fact that Port Canaveral is adjacent to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center and to U.S. Air Force launch pads used to send classified U.S. defense satellites into space is another reason why Strzok and the FBI should have blocked Gulftaiiner.

As a youth, Strzok lived inside Iran, where his father, also named Peter Strzk, worked. After the 1979 Iranian revolution, Strzok’s father expressed admiration and support for the Islamic regime’s Mullahs, citing the “order” that the Mullahs and their theocratic rule brought to the Iranian nation.

The SEC initially filed an airtight amended complaint against Dhia Jafar and won the support of a federal judge who denied defendant Dhia Jafar’s motion to dismiss an SEC lawsuit alleging that he had illegally made millions of dollars by trading Onyx Pharmaceuticals options using insider information.

In September 2015, however, the SEC, “without explanation” snatched defeat from the jaws of victory with their abrupt reversal where the SEC stunningly dropped its $3.7 million multi-year insider trading case against Dhia Jafar.

By 2015, the SEC case had been attracting considerable unwanted attention from financial press outlets around the world for two years, threatening to blow the lid off of a national security nightmare involving Iraqi WMDs, Russia’s Club-K Container Missile System, Port Canaveral, and Russia, that is on track to become the essence of the Obama administration and its breathtaking acts of treason.

Gulftainer’s Extensive Ties To Russian State-Owned Enterprises

During the same general time frame, the Iraqi Jafar family’s company Gulftainer went into at least five deals with Russia’s military industrial complex, a Russian state-owned petroleum company, a Russian bank, and Russian seaports. Gulftainer entered into a 2010 joint venture with Russia’s ROSTEC, the state-owned military technology company that owns ROSOBORONEXPORT, the exporter of Russia’s Trojan Horse Club-K Container Missile System. The Club-K is an advanced weapon disguised as a standard intermodal shipping container that launches Russian Kalibr cruise missiles carrying lethal nuclear, chemical, biological, Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP), or conventional payloads. Yet, the Obama administration, knowing that Gulftainer had partnered with ROSTEC, the Russian state-owned enterprise that exports the Club-K Trojan Horse asymmetrical weapon system, placed Gulftainer inside the wire at Port Canaveral, 1000 feet from the Trident submarine turning basin used by the U.S. Navy and the British Royal Navy.

In 2011 and 2013, Gulftainer entered deals with Russia’s Port of Ust Luga, near St. Petersburg — one of Russia’s ports designated for handling nuclear materials.

Gulftainer And The Iraqi Jafars’ History Of Getting Inside The Wire At U.S. Ports Near U.S. Navy Submarine Bases

In 2012, Gulftaiiner attempted to illegally and covertly take over cargo container operations at Florida’s Port of Jacksonville, a stone’s throw from Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, home base of the Atlantic Fleet’s Ohio-class Trident submarines and fast-attack submarines.

Local media in Jacksonville exposed Gulftainer for having offered $250 million under the table to become secret, silent partners at the Port of Jacksonville. Subsequently, the Port of Jacksonville’s CEO rejected Gulftainer. One presumes that Gulftainer’s attempt at an illegal entrée to a critical infrastructure port with significant monies under the table, better known as bribery, would have precluded Gulftainer from doing business in the United States.

Gulftainer and the Jafars then turned their attention toward Port Canaveral.

Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar’s brother and business partner Hamid Dhia Jafar is the co-owner of Gulftainer, a seaports management company to which the Obama administration awarded a 35-year cargo container terminal lease at critical infrastructure Port Canaveral, Florida, within spitting distance of the U.S. Navy’s Trident ballistic missile submarines, the most important leg of America’s nuclear triad, and adjacent to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center and Canaveral Air Force Station.

Essentially, the Obama administration placed nuclear terrorists inside the wire where America’s air, sea, and space commands reside. The Obama administration bypassed the required National Security Threat Analysis and CFIUS review of the Gulftainer / Port Canaveral deal that was secretly negotiated under the code-name “Project Pelican” and that had illegally bypassed Florida’s open-bidding Sunshine law.

James Comey’s FBI and Peter Strzok, at the time section chief of the Counterespionage Section within the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division, never weighed in on the secret “Project Pelican” deal.

The Project Pelican negotiations coincided with the SEC’s prosecution of Dhia Jafar’s insider trading case.

The SEC dropped the prosecution of Dhia Jafar and his insider trading case shortly after the Port Canaveral / Gulftainer secret “Project Pelican” deal was consummated after the U.S.Treasury Department announced that the Gulftainer Port Canaveral deal required no CFIUS review on the legally flawed premise that the lease, not being a purchase, does not require a CFIUS review. The 2007 CFIUS law states just the reverse.

The Obama Treasury Department’s argument was fatuous on its face as Port Canaveral housed military and civilian critical infrastructure spanning from Trident missile testing facilities, CIA satellite launches, SpaceX launch pads, and petroleum pipelines that pump jet fuel for 50 miles from Port Canaveral to Orlando International Airport.  Gulftainer’s cargo container terminal at Port Canaveral is also within easy striking distance — only twelve miles — of Patrick Air Force Base, where the Boeing E4B “doomsday plane” used as an airborne nuclear war command post is intermittently stationed on standby, engines running, ready to take off in the event of a nuclear conflict with Russia, China, or Iran. Just imagine the armageddon that would ensue from planting nuclear terrorists inside this facility.

A previous U.A.E. deal — the Dubai Ports World takeover of six U.S. ports, led to a firestorm of controversy, congressional hearings, and wall-to-wall media coverage. Even communist Senator Bernie Sanders was opposed to the Dubai Ports World takeover of U.S. ports, citing national security concerns in the wake of the 9/11 terror attacks. But that did not slow down the Obama administration — not one iota.

Adding gasoline to that firestorm should have been the knowledge that not only was a Middle Eastern ports company taking over critical infrastructure at a major U.S. military complex at Port Canaveral, but so too that the family being awarded the 35-year no-bid contract, with no CFIUS review and National Security Threat Analysis, was comprised of two Middle Easten brothers who had not only been under investigation by the U.S. Government as supplying and funding Saddam Hussein’s nuclear weapons, but that one of them, Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar, had also been placed on the Pentagon’s “Blacklist” explicitly wanted for capture or kill.

The Pentagon placed Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar on U.S. Central Command’s Operation Iraqi Freedom “Blacklist,” a classified list of high-value targets from Saddam’s inner circle whom Coalition military forces were ordered to capture, and if they should encounter military resistance, were authorized to engage and kill.

The Saddam Tapes, captured by Coalition Forces during Operation Iraqi Freedom, showed Saddam and his cabinet – of which Dr. Jafar was a key member, musing about placing a nuclear weapon into Washington D.C.

Yet, the Obama administration forged ahead.

‘Saddam Tapes’ Revealed “Saddam’s Plans To Launch A WMD Sneak Attack By Proxy Against America” ⁠— John Loftus

It is not as though this information was secret. The 2006 Intelligence Summit, held in Crystal City, Virginia, was, in fact, all about The Saddam Tapes.

Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar also oversaw procurement and technology transfer for Iraq’s chemical and biological warfare programs, according to CIA documents.

Suspected inside-trader Dhia Jafar and nuclear physicist Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar were both born in Baghdad, Iraq and live in Dubai, where Uruk is headquartered.

Uruk is affiliated with shipping container and ports management company Gulftainer, both subsidiaries of The Crescent Group. Hamid Dhia Jafar’s Crescent Investments, also a Crescent Group subsidiary, is a founding shareholder of private equity firm The Abraaj Group, which collapsed in a colossally public spectacle. Investors Bill and Melinda Gates cried foul and demanded their money back from The  Abraaj Group. The Abraaj Group’s Pakistani CEO Arif Naqvi was plucked up at London’s Heathrow Airport. Barack Hussein Obama’s Pakistani Marxist LINK TO HIS BOOK travelling companion and college friend Wahid Hamid, after his unprecedented rise in the corporate sphere, became a Managing Partner of The Abraaj Group.

Both Dhia Jafar’s SEC insider trading case  and the Jafars’ Gulftainer “Project Pelican” deal, were heavily covered in the press, including in multiple legal publications. James Comey and Peter Strzok’s FBI could not have helped but notice. It was their direct responsibility to notice. It was their direct responsibility to protect Americans from the threat of WMDs.

It is beyond comprehension or belief that the FBI was not well aware of both the insidious Port Canaveral deal and the insider trading case regarding the Iraqi Dhia Jafar family.

Self-avowed communist FBI Director James Comey and FBI Counterespionage Section Chief Peter Strzok had to know. They knew.

As the FBI used to say, “there are no coincidences.” So, what, exactly, were Comey and Strzok’s FBI and Hodgman’s SEC up to?

Scrapping 13 years of development costing $1.1 billion, President Obama’s Under Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter inexplicably canceled the Pentagon’s revolutionary NLOS-LS “Missiles in a Box” weapons system in 2010.

Though development of NLOS-LS was 92 percent complete, Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics Ashton Carter canceled the entire NLOS-LS “Missiles in a Box” program less than one month after “Jane’s Defence Weekly” shocked Western defense experts with a breaking report that Moscow was now marketing Russia’s own “Missiles in a Box” system, the previously unheard of Club-K Container Missile System.

Russia’s Trojan Horse Club-K “Missiles in a Box” system, perplexingly, bears a striking resemblance to the Pentagon’s now-canceled NLOS-LS.

The Pentagon designated its revolutionary “Missiles in a Box” weapon the XM501 Non-Line-of-Sight Launch System (NLOS-LS).

Ash Carter’s cancellation of America’s NLOS-LS, in conjunction with the arrival of Russia’s Club-K, brought about a calamitous shift in the military balance of power that weakened the United States and empowered Russia. More

Russia’s Pearl Harbor 2.0 Asymmetrical War Plans, Gulftainer, Club-K, and EMP

By Mary Fanning and Alan Jones

Translations from a Russian defense journal and from a secret Iranian military handbook suggest that Russia and Iran have developed a Pearl Harbor 2.0 plan to sink the entire U.S. Navy fleet as part of coordinated asymmetrical attacks against the United States and U.S. military bases around the world.

The plan is to launch Russian Kalibr cruise missiles from submarines, freighter ships, and Trojan Horse Club-K Container Missile System intermodal cargo “containers” that can be smuggled into U.S. ports and moved into the U.S. interior aboard trains and semi-trucks.    More

Exclusive THE REAL RUSSIA STORY: Port Canaveral “Project Pelican” and Uranium One Deals Connected through the Jafars


By Mary Fanning and Alan Jones | February 5, 2018


Gulftainer is connected to the Uranium One deal.

Gulftainer is the Iraqi Jafar family’s UAE-based ports company that is tightly connected to Russia and Saddam Hussein’s nuclear weapons programs.

In 2014 the Obama administration awarded Gulftainer with a 35-year lease to Florida’s Port Canaveral cargo container terminal in a secret deal code-named “Project Pelican.”

In 2011,  Gulftainer affiliate Crescent Investments partnered via a Strategic Cooperation Agreement with Russia’s state-owned power station operator and electricity import-export monopoly Inter RAO UES.

At that time, Inter RAO UES was a subsidiary of Russia’s Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation. Rosatom is the Russian company that purchased Uranium One. More

General Michael Hayden (USAF Ret.), who served as CIA director and NSA director, told CNN that allegations published by the “Washington Post” proclaiming that Jared Kushner considered establishing a back channel line of communication with Russian officials before President Trump assumed office were unprecedented.

“This is off the map…I know of no other experience like this in our history, certainly within my life experience,” Hayden said.


General Hayden is certainly well aware of Barack Obama’s secret, off-the-books, pre-election diplomatic mission to the Iranian mullahs during which Obama’s emissary promised that Iran would receive a better deal than it might receive from the sitting president — George W. Bush. The Obama campaign’s message: the Islamic Republic would be far happier with Obama’s policies if it would wait until the election was over.

“What manner of ignorance, chaos, hubris, suspicion, contempt, would you have to have to think that doing this with the Russian ambassador was a good or an appropriate idea?,” Hayden said.

Senator Obama’s team set up the Iranian back channel not only before Barack Obama was sworn in as president, but before the 2008 election was even held.

Senator Obama’s team sent former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine William Green Miller to meet with Islamic regime officials inside Iran, circumventing NSA surveillance. In other words, the Obama campaign had its own private emissary on the ground inside Iran, secretly negotiating with a sworn enemy of the United States that was involved in a dispute.

General Hayden pretends to be oblivious of this pre-election Obama-Tehran communication arrangement. Why is General Hayden misrepresenting these facts to the American people?   Is this part of the ongoing “Deep State” seditious campaign to take down a duly elected president — Donald J. Trump?

President Obama would later repeat this scenario with another one of America’s major military adversaries when he was famously caught by a “hot mic” telling Russia’s President Dmitri Medvedev that he would have “more flexibility” on missile defense after the 2012 election.

The Obama team’s back channel to Tehran was William Green Miller, the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine under President Bill Clinton, according to Michael Ladeen writing for PJ Media in 2014.

Ladeen, who claims to have spoken to Ambassador Miller for his article “Obama’s Latest Big Lie: ‘We Have No Strategy,“ Ambassador Miller confirmed to me his conversations with Iranian leaders during the 2008 campaign.”

Such conversations would have constituted a clear violation of the Logan Act. The “Washington Post” is now claiming Kushner could have been guilty of the same violation had he followed through with establishing a secret communication channel with Russia.

Ambassador Miller was appointed by President Clinton as ambassador to Ukraine after Miller’s decades-long absence from the State Department. Miller had years earlier left the State Department as a form of protest against the Vietnam War, according to an interview archived at the Library of Congress.

Miller, whose grandfather is from Ukraine, once expressed that he was so appalled by McCarthyism that he was fearful of a career in diplomacy.  Miller initially took the foreign service exam in 1955, but chose not to pursue a career with the State Department during the height of communist investigations at the House and Senate. Miller instead embarked on a doctoral journey at Harvard University.

“I did not want to go into the Foreign Service because of the taint of McCarthy.” – Ambassador William Green Miller.

In 1959, as the McCarthy era investigations were winding down, someone inside the State Department signaled to Miller that the time to join the State Department was now or never.

Like President Obama himself, who was mentored in Hawaii by suspected KGB officer and known CPUSA member Frank Marshall Davis, Obama’s secret envoy to Iran, William Green Miller, was mentored by revolutionary Marxist, communist labor organizer, and literary critic Frederick Wilcox Dupee. Dupee was an associate of Soviet spy Whittaker Chambers, who at one time worked for the GRU but eventually switched sides and became an anticommunist.

Like Frank Marshall Davis, Ambassador Miller’s mentor Dupee joined the CPUSA and handed out communist literature to the longshoremen’s union — Davis in Honolulu and Dupee in New York City, where Miller grew up. Davis and Dupee were fellow members of CPUSA’s League of American Writers.
