New Pinay Cercle exposee - published web-first
Cercle researcher resurfaces after 15 years to finish and publish book

David Teacher's ROGUE AGENTS: The Cercle Pinay complex 1951 - 1991
November 8, 2008

"Formed in the Fifties... One of the most influential, secretive, and, it goes without saying, exclusive political clubs in the West... One member contacted by this newspaper said he could not talk about it "even off, off the record". Another simply put the phone down... The source of its funding is a mystery..."



- June 29, 1997, The Independent, 'Aitken dropped by the Right's secret club', one of the very few mainstream reports on Le Cercle.

Back in 1988 and 1989 Lobster Magazine published two major articles on a secretive group of French origin called the Pinay Cercle. These articles were written by David Teacher, a translator at the European Union. In 1991 Lobster Magazine announced that David would soon finish up a book on the Cercle, to be published in both French and English. Unfortunately the book never appeared (for reasons that have only become clear
now), and Robin Ramsay, the editor of Lobster, lost contact with the author.

Fast forward to 2008: David Teacher, living in Geneva as an international administrator, discovers the ISGP website and the Cercle article on it. As a result he has decided to update and finish his original manuscript and allow it to be published here. The book gives great insight into the Paneuropean Right (what ISGP has been calling the Vatican- Pauneuropa network), and is a perfect addition to the information on this site. I suggest you download it, print it, read it, and spread it around.

Le Cercle - this time in relation to the assassination of Princess Diana

Chapter X - "Le Cercle"
from Who Killed Diana? by Simon Regan who died in 2000

One very positive connection which supports the theory that Marwan and his cronies were not just tolerated but actively encouraged by the Super-Establishment, is that they were at one stage (and almost certainly still are) king-pins of what the establishment first called the "Safari Club". This was an extraordinary but loose organisation which, because of its strong anti-Communist intentions, was heavily backed by the entire Western right wing. The Safari Club actually existed as an extraordinary and very exclusive Afro-French club in Paris. It had a ground floor restaurant and bar, but there was a proper club underneath which was very exclusive. By chance in London I met a man who, when he was a student, had worked there as a bus boy. The club itself no longer exists, but then it was decked out exotically with such things as elephant feet as stools. The whole place resembled a safari tent and people met by the flickering light of kerosene lamps. My friend worked mainly in the restaurant above, but also sometimes acted as a relief in the club itself. He said: "It was entirely eccentric in a sinister sort of way. I knew for sure that it was ultra-right wing, and it was always heavily conspiratorial. I was told never to recognise any of the patrons and they would literally huddle and talk in whispers. They always stopped talking if I was in earshot. It was an eerie place but at the time I needed the money. I didn’t really know the significance of it all until much later when I read that Chirac had had it closed down. I didn’t really actually recognise anyone, but some of them looked familiar and they were multi-national".

This clandestine but highly active international group in turn led to an offspring loosely called "Le Cercle" or the Pinay Circle, which became altogether more organised and dangerous. This was the group that the Baroness had emphasised I should look into if I wanted to get positive clues as to an assassination, and the more I did, the more convinced I became that they might be implicated in some way. These people would not have smiled at Diana’s pacifist activities

The original "Safari Club" was set up by the French ultra right-winger, Count Alexander de Maranches, who was the Director of the French Service for External Documentation and Espionage (SDECE) during the seventies. A group which the socialist Francois Mitterand described when he took power in France in 1981, as "a haven of fascist hysterics and military retainers inimical in their right to govern." A year later he abolished the SDECE and replaced it with the Direction Generale de la Securite Exterieure (DGSE). Under the Director, Pierre Marion, the entire French security system was re-directed towards Industrial Espionage which wholly supported the Group Bull, a "state-owned company which sits at the very heart of France’s formidable military-industrial complex" (Mark Shernik). Bull, went into a curious alliance with Honeywell, the US computer firm, with full DGSE backing. Honeywell was the largest manufacturer of landmines. It was this group who was to supply landmines to both sides in Bosnia.

In the seventies, when all this was being formulated under the auspices of the Safari Club, Marwan and co. were most active. The club had originated as a consortium formed between the secret police forces of the Shah of Iran (SAVAK), Saddam Hussein of Iraq, Anwar Sadat of Egypt (The Marwan connection), and the Saudi Intelligence Service headed by Kamal Adham (later of BCCI fame). It was expressly formed to support regimes that were actively anti-Communist and to try and put down regimes that were not. In this second category it arranged coup d’etats in Central Africa, Congo, Nigeria and Mali. Because of its nature, the group was heavily into the supply of arms. When billion dollar contracts for arms are floating about, the Establishment is amazingly tolerant and it was during this time that Marwan became a very rich young man.

"Le Cercle" eventually spread its tentacles throughout the Western World, but it started in France, as a cogent force, during the Premiership of Antoine Pinay in 1951. Pinay attended the notorious Bilderberg meeting in Ossterbeek, Holland in May 1954. Here he identified others of his extreme political ilk and with the active co-operation of Jean Violet of the then SDECE and Otto von Hapsburg, heir to the Austrian throne, he formed the club. By the sixties their covert membership was truly astonishing. The "inner circle" included, among many others, Nicholas Elliot, a department head at MI6; William Colby, former controversial director of the CIA; Colonel Botta, of Swiss Military Intelligence; Stefano Della Chiaie, a leading member of the Italian Secret Service; Giullo Andreotti, former Italian Prime Minister and member of P2, who, it was later proved, gave the Italian Mafia presidential protection; General Antonio de Spinola, leader of the Portuguese Putschists; Silva Munoz, former Franco minister and a senior member of Opus Dei; Franz Josef Strauss, the German Defence Minister, and Monsignor Brunello, BNG agent in the Vatican.

While the Circle itself was clandestine, they soon formed open and genuine fronts. In America it was the Washington-based, CIA-backed, Heritage Foundation which was to eventually donate some £5 million to the Conservative Party coffers in support of the Thatcher government, on condition that they put some of their own people into the CCO HQ. This included Dr. Julian Lewis, an arch enemy of Scallywag’s for some years now. In turn, these people were sponsored by the British Freedom Association, run by Norris McWhirter, scourge of the CND, who is also founding editor of the Guinness Book of Records. Fringe members were The World anti-Communist League; Western Goals, the Bilderbergers, the Opus Dei; Propaganda Duo (P2) and the Jonathan Institute. Attaching themselves somewhere along the line was also the Moonies.

The Circle, on the one hand masterminded the demise of the Wilson and Heath governments in the UK; the assassination of Olaf Palme in Sweden; and caused the destabilisation of the Gough Whitlam government in Australia. On the other hand it was masterminding the setting-up of right-wing governments everywhere.

"Le Cercle" was not just anti-Communist, it was anti-socialist, even though many of the governments they tried to destroy or destabilise had been properly and legally elected. They truly were the original "Reds Under the Beds" fanatics who saw communism everywhere and believed it was their divine right to molest it in any way possible. Under this guise, however, they also cornered the arms markets.

To be fair, during the Cold War, communism under the Bolsheviks was a constant and serious threat to Western democracies and it had developed a huge, expensive, potent and dangerous machine of destabilisation against the West. Leading, it appeared obvious at the time, to an all-out nuclear war. Western security forces were quite within their rights to be paranoiac about the Eastern Block’s intentions. But the activities of "Le Cercle" were merely an extension of McCarthyism in a rather more intelligent and less hysterical, though none the less potent, form. They had developed a huge sense of menace which was closely guarded by some genuine authenticity and tolerated because of national paranoia. The CIA almost openly backed them, the MI6 more cautiously so. In both forces the Circle found many sympathisers.

Key members of the British Establishment, but especially their security services, were heavily involved with this set up. If many individuals were not actual members they were strident sympathisers. And at the end of the day, in the years leading up to Diana’s death, it all came down to simple gun-running. The supplying of arms to those forces, however evil, which they thought would stamp out the reds.

Three constant sympathisers in the UK, were Jonathan Aitken, later heavily discredited, Alan Clark, Minister of State for Defence in the Thatcher government and Paul Channon, former Secretary of State for the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) which at the time were so instrumental in discrediting both Asil Nadir and al-Fayed. In their dealings with the latter, the DTI brought into the conspiracy everyone mentioned in the former chapter concerning Ashraf Marwan. Sir Richard Scott reprimanded all three former ministers in the arms-to-Iraq enquiry.

The Safari Club meanwhile, with unlimited oil money, was busy plotting to overthrow President Sekou Toure of Guinea; assassinating Amilcar in Guinea-Bissau; and backing Siad Barre in Somalia. They led plots to assassinate Colonel Gaddafi, because he had actively supplied backing and arms to the "other side". They had formed strong links with BOSS, the Gestapo-style secret police of South Africa. Their only real failures were not managing to murder Gaddafi and failing to prop up the Shah. But did the West later in the Gulf War fall short of murdering Saddam because he was an original member of the Safari Club? Did he still have influential friends on the world stage? Has he even today? He certainly still has widespread support in much of the Muslim world. In February 1998 it was revealed that a top CIA agent, Thomas Twetten, (Deputy Director of Operations at the time), a major influence of Le Cercle in Washington, was working outside his office or jurisdiction in a plot by Iraqi Generals to murder Saddam. Clinton himself had ordered a feasible death plot. Mysteriously, all the names of the plotters were leaked from Washington and the plot was thwarted. MI6 were actively involved on an operational level directly with Twetten. In all some 120 officers were shot as a result.

In the final analysis, to "Le Cercle" it is not so much a political question as one of economics. There’s still a lot of oil out there, and a vibrant market for billions of dollars worth of armaments. Kuwait, of course, was not a member of the Safaris. But it must have been difficult for Saudi Arabia to choose between the threat imposed by Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait and attacking a fellow member of the club.

My own security contacts, including the Baroness, had also told me about a highly mysterious organisation called the Committee of 26, which is apparently based in Bristol, in England’s West Country. I have never heard of this and can find no other official reference in any file. But it is apparently a super-secret "liaison desk" between the highest echelons of British and American agencies and has the "co-operation" of the French. I was told it was "Old Guard" and worked unilaterally. That is, it was a kind of uncontrolled "super-agency" which answered to no one. I cannot show that this agency even exists, but if it does the number 26 presumably relates to members and, given the rise of membership of The Circle, which is known to exist, I would approximate that that would be an accurate figure and that it may well represent the right-wing elements of some 26 countries. I trust the Baroness, but she was unable to give me any feasible further "chapter and verse."

While there is a strong argument against landmine manufactures themselves plotting against Diana, at the time of her death the production of landmines was still going strong. The Clinton administration had just clinched a £400 million deal to supply an arms package for Bosnian Muslims (Through Honeywell). The French (through the DGSE) had just dried the ink on a $2 billion oil deal with the Iranians and part of the payment was to be a shipment of arms to Bosnia where a very high-profile Princess Diana had recently visited to appeal to the world against the recent carnage and its aftermath. Her very innocence was getting to be a huge embarrassment to several governments. And, perhaps more important, to the machinations of "Le Cercle" An uncontrolled Princess was swanning through their affairs and getting world-wide support. She was a one-woman icon wandering at will through the war zones of the world. She was striking huge chords for international pacifism. And worse, far worse, she was a deep influence on the future king.

Ironically, Sir James Goldsmith, was also an associate member of "Le Cercle" Goldsmith had been very much involved with Circle activities in Africa, and so had Tiny Rowland. It was very much in Rowland’s interests to keep left-wing governments out of Africa where the base of his fortune was made. Mainly in diamond mines which used, almost exclusively, slave labour. There has never been any dispute that Rowland had become a serious threat to the Fayed family. All over a personal tiff about the world’s most high-class grocery shop.

"Le Cercle" can still call upon almost unlimited funds and includes among members many of the most powerful men in the world. They are fervent to the extreme. They nurture the paranoia so as to feather their own nests and they have a very firm grip on Whitehall, Paris and Washington. They are more than capable of organising and executing an assassination against any force they feel may be threatening them. To all of them Diana and Dodi were highly dispensable.

PINAY CERCLE
by David Guyatt
1999
http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/sociopolitica/sociopol_lecercle06.ht m



CIRCLE OF POWER
Perhaps more sinister, and certainly more shadowy than the Bilderbergers, the "Pinay Cercle" is an "Atlanticist" right-wing organization of serving and retired intelligence operatives, military officers and politicians that conspired to "affect" changes in government.
Amongst other things they claim credit for engineering the election of Margaret Thatcher in the U.K. and may have been behind the ousting of Australia’s Gough Whitlam.




Now almost forgotten, the decade of the "Seventies" was a time of immense political upheaval, dirty tricks and incessant rumors of right-wing military Coup d'états in leading western democracies.

Amongst the long list of resulting casualties of this "decade of tension" were:
Britain’s Prime Ministers: Harold Wilson and Ted Heath
Australia’s Gough Whitlam
Sweden’s Olaf Palme
America’s Jimmy Carter
France’s Francois Mitterand
The more southern flanks of NATO’s European axis:
Portugal
Spain
Turkey
Greece,
...converted rumour into chilling fact via the steel-blue glaze of gun-barrels. Italy, home of Pizza, the Pope, and Propaganda Due (P2) came in for its own brand of political fixit, courtesy of Uncle Sam’s very own CIA.

As the decade of the "eighties" slowly slipped above the now less than pink eastern horizon, right-wing beneficiaries of a coordinated international destabilization programme gave their heart-felt thanks.

Among them were Britain’s Iron Lady, Margaret Thatcher - Madonna of the Armaments industry - and America’s less brittle, and considerably less acute, Ronald Reagan - humble originator of the mega-tax-buck-swallowing SDI "Star Wars" programme and also, thus, a valued friend of the boys at Guns R Us International.

These two decades saw a proliferation of right-wing, quasi official and secretive groups that coordinated intelligence, propaganda and undertook covert black-operations around the globe. One of the most shadowy of all is the "Pinay Cercle", named after its founder Antoine Pinay, Premier of France in 1951.

Known more simply as "Le Cercle" it is recognized as a more clandestine sister organization to the already very secretive Bilderberg Group - a "behind-the-scenes ‘invisible’ influence" network.

Both groups share a familiar membership which includes,
Henry Kissinger
Zbigniew Brzezinski
David Rockerfeller
Each of these three luminaries of the international power network are, in addition to the foregoing, influential members of The Trilateral Commission and the Council for Foreign Relations as well as being regular attendees at Britain’s "Chatham House" - The Royal Institute of International Studies - shadowy twin to America’s CFR.

Antoine Pinay was extremely influential in Europe and the United States, where he had forged links with President Nixon. Pinay attended the Bilderberg inaugural meeting in Oosterbeek, Holland during May 1952. By 1969, Pinay together with Jean Violet, a Lawyer working for the French Intelligence Service SDECE, and Archduke Otto von Habsburg, heir to the Austrian throne, formed Le Cercle, and secretly began recruiting men of influence as members.

The intention was to shift the political climate of Europe to the far right via a secretly financed campaign of propaganda, and to establish a private intelligence service that would work, unofficially, with the existing security apparatus of the west.

Author Stephen Dorrill also believes there are serpentine inter-connections between Le Cercle and the Gladio network, a "stay-behind anti communist" military guerrilla force set up by NATO’s Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) during the "fifties", that was largely composed of ex Nazi’s.

Le Cercle has a different flavour to Bilderberg, however.

The latter is an important link to the overt "influence" organizations cited above and almost certainly focuses its efforts on the broader political issues, being careful to keep well-away from "direct actions". Le Cercle has a much more "hands on" role. Interestingly, its membership is more heavily composed of serving or former members of various Intelligence Services, senior military officers as well as politicians, bankers and VIP’s with right wing connections.

The "Cercle" was unknown until 1500 internal documents of the rightist (and Le Cercle funded) Institute for the Study of Conflict, were leaked to Time Out Magazine in 1975. Subsequently the documents have gone missing. At the time ISC was headed by CIA agent and "Cercle" Chairman, Brian Crozier who was heavily involved in another covert action group known simply as "The 61."

Unknown to Crozier, Hans von Machtenburg (a pseudonym) a senior intelligence official of Germany’s Intelligence service, BND, (and a member of Crozier’s "61") had been exchanging full reports on Crozier’s secret get-together’s with Hans Langemann, formerly a senior ranking officer of Germany’s Intelligence Service, the BND and latterly Head of Bavarian State Security.

In a fit of depression, Langemann blew the whistle on a number of alarming and sinister conspiracies to the left wing German glossy magazine Kronket. Soon the story was picked up by Der Spiegel who featured it.

One of Langemann’s more sensational reports, dated 1979, stated:
Specific aims within this framework are to affect a change of government:
(a) in the United Kingdom - accomplished
(b) in West Germany - to defend freedom of trade and of movement and to oppose all forms of subversion including terrorism
In another secret memorandum dated 8th November 1979 and addressed "Personal for the state minister only", Langemann notes that "Crozier worked with the CIA for years." He concludes, therefore "that they are fully aware of his activities" and goes on to observe that Crozier,
"has extensive connections with members, or more accurately, with former members, of the most important western security and intelligence services."
Further on he advises that Crozier, together with,
"Dickie Franks, Director of Britain’s SIS, and Nicholas Elliot, a senior department head in MI6" were recently invited to Chequers (the country home of the incumbent Prime Minister, in this case Margaret Thatcher) for a working meeting."

Langemann continues: "It must therefore be concluded that MI6 is fully aware of, if not indeed one of the main sponsors of", Crozier’s "diverse circle of friends in international politics..."
Additional subjects covered in the Langemann papers include the,
"involvement of the main intelligence and security agencies both as information sources and as recipients for information in these institutions"
as well as "undercover financial transactions for political aims"
that would be utilized by conducting "international campaigns aiming to discredit hostile personalities or events,"
the "creation of a (private) intelligence service specializing according to a selective point of view"
and the, "establishment of offices under suitable cover each run by a coordinator from the central office. Current plans cover London, Washington, Paris, Munich and Madrid"
The plans also called for "provision of contributions by certain well-known journalists in Britain, the US and other countries" and the organization of "public demonstrations in particular areas on themes to be decided and selected."

The Cercle and their Chairman, Crozier (left), clearly had lined-up a whole strategy of political "actions" that were not only known about, but approved by the western intelligence community, in additional to leading political figures including Prime Minister Thatcher and Presidential candidate Reagan.

In his autobiography Crozier regales us with his repeat visits to the White House to meet senior administration figures. In 1980 he flew to California to meet Reagan and "brief him" on his network and to offer his services when he became President.

Crozier stayed in close touch during the election with William Casey, Reagan’s campaign chief, later appointed DCI of the Central Intelligence Agency. After Reagan’s election victory he appointed Californian friend, William A. Wilson, to act as a his liaison with the Cercle and the related 61 group.

The Cercle has intimate connections with a host of inter-locking right wing outfits including:
WACL
Heritage Foundation
Western Goals
ISC
Freedom Association
Interdoc
Bilderbergers
Propaganda Due (P2)
Opus Dei
the Moonies
the Jonathan Institute
Many of these are funded fully or in part by the American Central Intelligence Agency. Members have included
Nicholas Elliott (British SIS/MI6 Dept. Head)
the CIA’s Director of Central Intelligence William Colby
Colonel Botta, (Swiss Military Intelligence)
Franz Josef Strauss (German Defense Minister, Head of CSU party and Bavarian Premier)
Alfredo Sanchez Bella (head of European operations for Spain’s Secret Service and closely connected to Opus Dei)
Giulio Andreotti (former Italian Prime Minister, P2 member and Mafia confidant)
General Antonio de Spinola (head of the Portuguese putschists)
Silva Muñoz (former Franco minister and senior Opus Dei member)
Monsignore Brunello (Vatican prelate and BNG agent)
Stefano della Chiaie, leading member of P2 and Italy’s Secret Service, SID
This list is by no means complete.

Another major aim of Le Cercle was to influence West German elections to ensure that Franz Joseph Strauss (below), the ultra right wing leader of the Christian Social Union Party, became Chancellor of Germany.

In the event Strauss was defeated, due, it is believe to effective counter-measures taken by Germany’s security and intelligence apparatus, the BND and BfV, who’s "operational chiefs do not follow his political lines." However, despite this set-back, other projects were more successful.

During the "Cercle’s" meeting held on 28-29th June 1980 in Zurich, Switzerland, discussions were focused around,
"a series of appropriate measures to promote the electoral campaign of presidential candidate Reagan against Carter."
Elliott reported that in this context positive contact had been made with George Bush as well.

Journalist, David Teacher, a keen investigator of Cercle activities observes:
"It is becoming more and more apparent that the treatment reserved for Harold Wilson at the hands of the intelligence services was only the U.K end of an international phenomenon. Around 1975 a surprising number of government were targeted by their own (or others’) intelligence agencies because of their radical policies."
He goes on to list a number of known "destabilization" programs that the Cercle are known, or believed, to have been involved:
"The UK: the concerted efforts by elements in the British intelligence and security services, with CIA and BOSS, to bring down Wilson, Thorpe and Heath."
The USA: the CIA’s Operation Chaos, the FBI’s Cointelpro program and, of course, Watergate.
Australia: the loans scandal and other destabilization of Gough Whitlam by the CIA and SIS."
Additional Cercle targets may have been Olaf Palme, Sweden’s Prime Minister.

In 1987 the leading Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter carried a sensational story that the 03 section of the Swedish intelligence service, SAPO, were heavily involved in Palme’s assassination, following their fury at his policy of détente towards the Soviet Union, and possibly fearful that he may discover the extent of their implication in arms sales to Iran. Other "direct actions" possibly include a Coup d’etat in Belgium during 1973, "planned by gendarmerie officers and extreme right-wing groups."

By no means least were the allegations by France’s leading daily, Le Monde, which in 1978 revealed the activities of Circle member and head of the intelligence service SDECE, Alexandre de Marenches. Le Monde claimed that de Marenches led a domestic campaign of terrorism and disinformation. It is fairly apparent that these activities were, "designedly", to keep Francois Mitterand from office during the 1974 elections. However, with the exception of the Langemann papers, and an ISC memo published in Lobster 17, there are no other Cercle documents available to confirm these allegations.

Despite a strong focus on European issues, the Cercle were not unaware of the significance of establishing psyops "action centres" in North America. In 1975 the Washington Institute for the Study of Conflict (WISC) was launched under the chairmanship of George Ball.

Characteristically, Ball, one time Senior Managing Director of the enormous Wall Street international investment bank, Lehman Brothers, and Under Secretary of State (1961-66) was a member of the Trilateral Commission; on the steering committee of the Bilderberg Group and a member of the Council for Foreign Relations.

His association with the WISC mark him as a close friend of the Cercle. Others members of the WISC committee were Zgigniew Brzezinski and Kermit …

Four years later, in 1979, Maurice Tugwell, former head of Information Policy, a black propaganda unit set-up by British military intelligence in Northern Ireland, formed the Canadian Centre for Conflict Studies. CCS largely operates on contract work for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), the Canadian Dept. of National Defence plus others. We have seen that one aim of the Cercle was to aid in the election of President Reagan.

Presumably they can also cite this aim as being "accomplished"? Their close connection to George Bush may have extended to helping in his drive to election victory also. Canada also veered sharply to the right during the eighties.

We may never know the true extent to which the Cercle, and its black psyops "fronts" the ISC, WISC, CCS and others had in "affecting" a wholesale change in government in Europe, North America and elsewhere. Clearly the decade of the eighties witnessed a marked shift to the political right in the western democratic arena. It would be stretching credulity to suggest that this rapid swing in political ideology took place accidentally.

It is also abundantly obvious that the Cercle’s primary influence resided in its top level connections to the shadowy intelligence apparatus of the west. At the same time it possessed serious clout inside the sinews of transatlantic power that repose in the Council for Foreign Relations, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, the Trilateral Commission and the Bilderberg Group.

The foregoing outline - slim as it is - serves not only to underscore the inherent and potential weaknesses that reside in the institution of representative democracy, but also demonstrates the "will o’ the wisp" nature of covert activities that hide comfortably behind the public face of government.

That a small handful of influential men across the planet may be able to manipulate "free" elections to suit their personal and ideological advantage, is not a new concept. Generally, utterances of this sort are met by the blanket rejection: "conspiracist theory" and discarded out of hand. Such rebuffs rarely take into account the underlying evidence, fragmentary as it is. Perhaps they are not meant to?

Despite the wholesale collapse of the Soviet bloc, the Cercle has not packed up its victorious bags nor have its members disbanded.

Attendees at the 1990 Cercle meeting at the sumptuous Al Bustan hotel, Muscat, in Oman, included
Jonathan Aitken (Minister of Defence procurement)
Alan Clarke (Minister of State for Defence)
Lord Julian Amery (joint Chairman)
Sheikh Qaboos (Ruler of Oman)
General Norman Schwarzkopf (the bear-like Commander of the Allied forces in the Gulf)
Paul Channon (former secretary of State at the Dept. of Trade & Industry)
the Head of the Dutch Secret Service
an unnamed French Naval Admiral plus other serving or former intelligence operatives and VIP’s...
Aitken, Clarke and Channon have all been heavily implicated in the arms to Iraq affair examined by Lord Justice Richard Scott
Significantly, Alan Clarke revealed in his hugely successful "Diaries" that the Cercle was funded by the Central Intelligence Agency.

With its apparent "raison d’être" (anti communist psyops) clearly in tatters, one can only suppose that there is, or, perhaps, always was an additional hidden agenda lurking behind Cercle activities.

To understand what this may be one must look further ahead. An increasing international focus are the calls for "minimalist" government. This has always been a central plank of laissez faire economics. Deregulation and the freeing of government imposed constraints on international business to engage in activities as it sees fit, is a long-term and obvious objective.

If history is any judge, the attainment of this singular goal may usher in a new dark age of unrestrained capitalism, coordinated by the gargantuan trans national corporations - all of whom are heavily represented on the membership rolls of the CRF, the Trilats, RIIA, Bilderbergers etc.

In the meantime a new millennium awaits.

PINAY CERCLE
by David Guyatt
1999
http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/sociopolitica/sociopol_lecercle06.ht m



CIRCLE OF POWER
Perhaps more sinister, and certainly more shadowy than the Bilderbergers, the "Pinay Cercle" is an "Atlanticist" right-wing organization of serving and retired intelligence operatives, military officers and politicians that conspired to "affect" changes in government.
Amongst other things they claim credit for engineering the election of Margaret Thatcher in the U.K. and may have been behind the ousting of Australia’s Gough Whitlam.




Now almost forgotten, the decade of the "Seventies" was a time of immense political upheaval, dirty tricks and incessant rumors of right-wing military Coup d'états in leading western democracies.

Amongst the long list of resulting casualties of this "decade of tension" were:
Britain’s Prime Ministers: Harold Wilson and Ted Heath
Australia’s Gough Whitlam
Sweden’s Olaf Palme
America’s Jimmy Carter
France’s Francois Mitterand
The more southern flanks of NATO’s European axis:
Portugal
Spain
Turkey
Greece,
...converted rumour into chilling fact via the steel-blue glaze of gun-barrels. Italy, home of Pizza, the Pope, and Propaganda Due (P2) came in for its own brand of political fixit, courtesy of Uncle Sam’s very own CIA.

As the decade of the "eighties" slowly slipped above the now less than pink eastern horizon, right-wing beneficiaries of a coordinated international destabilization programme gave their heart-felt thanks.

Among them were Britain’s Iron Lady, Margaret Thatcher - Madonna of the Armaments industry - and America’s less brittle, and considerably less acute, Ronald Reagan - humble originator of the mega-tax-buck-swallowing SDI "Star Wars" programme and also, thus, a valued friend of the boys at Guns R Us International.

These two decades saw a proliferation of right-wing, quasi official and secretive groups that coordinated intelligence, propaganda and undertook covert black-operations around the globe. One of the most shadowy of all is the "Pinay Cercle", named after its founder Antoine Pinay, Premier of France in 1951.

Known more simply as "Le Cercle" it is recognized as a more clandestine sister organization to the already very secretive Bilderberg Group - a "behind-the-scenes ‘invisible’ influence" network.

Both groups share a familiar membership which includes,
Henry Kissinger
Zbigniew Brzezinski
David Rockerfeller
Each of these three luminaries of the international power network are, in addition to the foregoing, influential members of The Trilateral Commission and the Council for Foreign Relations as well as being regular attendees at Britain’s "Chatham House" - The Royal Institute of International Studies - shadowy twin to America’s CFR.

Antoine Pinay was extremely influential in Europe and the United States, where he had forged links with President Nixon. Pinay attended the Bilderberg inaugural meeting in Oosterbeek, Holland during May 1952. By 1969, Pinay together with Jean Violet, a Lawyer working for the French Intelligence Service SDECE, and Archduke Otto von Habsburg, heir to the Austrian throne, formed Le Cercle, and secretly began recruiting men of influence as members.

The intention was to shift the political climate of Europe to the far right via a secretly financed campaign of propaganda, and to establish a private intelligence service that would work, unofficially, with the existing security apparatus of the west.

Author Stephen Dorrill also believes there are serpentine inter-connections between Le Cercle and the Gladio network, a "stay-behind anti communist" military guerrilla force set up by NATO’s Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) during the "fifties", that was largely composed of ex Nazi’s.

Le Cercle has a different flavour to Bilderberg, however.

The latter is an important link to the overt "influence" organizations cited above and almost certainly focuses its efforts on the broader political issues, being careful to keep well-away from "direct actions". Le Cercle has a much more "hands on" role. Interestingly, its membership is more heavily composed of serving or former members of various Intelligence Services, senior military officers as well as politicians, bankers and VIP’s with right wing connections.

The "Cercle" was unknown until 1500 internal documents of the rightist (and Le Cercle funded) Institute for the Study of Conflict, were leaked to Time Out Magazine in 1975. Subsequently the documents have gone missing. At the time ISC was headed by CIA agent and "Cercle" Chairman, Brian Crozier who was heavily involved in another covert action group known simply as "The 61."

Unknown to Crozier, Hans von Machtenburg (a pseudonym) a senior intelligence official of Germany’s Intelligence service, BND, (and a member of Crozier’s "61") had been exchanging full reports on Crozier’s secret get-together’s with Hans Langemann, formerly a senior ranking officer of Germany’s Intelligence Service, the BND and latterly Head of Bavarian State Security.

In a fit of depression, Langemann blew the whistle on a number of alarming and sinister conspiracies to the left wing German glossy magazine Kronket. Soon the story was picked up by Der Spiegel who featured it.

One of Langemann’s more sensational reports, dated 1979, stated:
Specific aims within this framework are to affect a change of government:
(a) in the United Kingdom - accomplished
(b) in West Germany - to defend freedom of trade and of movement and to oppose all forms of subversion including terrorism
In another secret memorandum dated 8th November 1979 and addressed "Personal for the state minister only", Langemann notes that "Crozier worked with the CIA for years." He concludes, therefore "that they are fully aware of his activities" and goes on to observe that Crozier,
"has extensive connections with members, or more accurately, with former members, of the most important western security and intelligence services."
Further on he advises that Crozier, together with,
"Dickie Franks, Director of Britain’s SIS, and Nicholas Elliot, a senior department head in MI6" were recently invited to Chequers (the country home of the incumbent Prime Minister, in this case Margaret Thatcher) for a working meeting."

Langemann continues: "It must therefore be concluded that MI6 is fully aware of, if not indeed one of the main sponsors of", Crozier’s "diverse circle of friends in international politics..."
Additional subjects covered in the Langemann papers include the,
"involvement of the main intelligence and security agencies both as information sources and as recipients for information in these institutions"
as well as "undercover financial transactions for political aims"
that would be utilized by conducting "international campaigns aiming to discredit hostile personalities or events,"
the "creation of a (private) intelligence service specializing according to a selective point of view"
and the, "establishment of offices under suitable cover each run by a coordinator from the central office. Current plans cover London, Washington, Paris, Munich and Madrid"
The plans also called for "provision of contributions by certain well-known journalists in Britain, the US and other countries" and the organization of "public demonstrations in particular areas on themes to be decided and selected."

The Cercle and their Chairman, Crozier (left), clearly had lined-up a whole strategy of political "actions" that were not only known about, but approved by the western intelligence community, in additional to leading political figures including Prime Minister Thatcher and Presidential candidate Reagan.

In his autobiography Crozier regales us with his repeat visits to the White House to meet senior administration figures. In 1980 he flew to California to meet Reagan and "brief him" on his network and to offer his services when he became President.

Crozier stayed in close touch during the election with William Casey, Reagan’s campaign chief, later appointed DCI of the Central Intelligence Agency. After Reagan’s election victory he appointed Californian friend, William A. Wilson, to act as a his liaison with the Cercle and the related 61 group.

The Cercle has intimate connections with a host of inter-locking right wing outfits including:
WACL
Heritage Foundation
Western Goals
ISC
Freedom Association
Interdoc
Bilderbergers
Propaganda Due (P2)
Opus Dei
the Moonies
the Jonathan Institute
Many of these are funded fully or in part by the American Central Intelligence Agency. Members have included
Nicholas Elliott (British SIS/MI6 Dept. Head)
the CIA’s Director of Central Intelligence William Colby
Colonel Botta, (Swiss Military Intelligence)
Franz Josef Strauss (German Defense Minister, Head of CSU party and Bavarian Premier)
Alfredo Sanchez Bella (head of European operations for Spain’s Secret Service and closely connected to Opus Dei)
Giulio Andreotti (former Italian Prime Minister, P2 member and Mafia confidant)
General Antonio de Spinola (head of the Portuguese putschists)
Silva Muñoz (former Franco minister and senior Opus Dei member)
Monsignore Brunello (Vatican prelate and BNG agent)
Stefano della Chiaie, leading member of P2 and Italy’s Secret Service, SID
This list is by no means complete.

Another major aim of Le Cercle was to influence West German elections to ensure that Franz Joseph Strauss (below), the ultra right wing leader of the Christian Social Union Party, became Chancellor of Germany.

In the event Strauss was defeated, due, it is believe to effective counter-measures taken by Germany’s security and intelligence apparatus, the BND and BfV, who’s "operational chiefs do not follow his political lines." However, despite this set-back, other projects were more successful.

During the "Cercle’s" meeting held on 28-29th June 1980 in Zurich, Switzerland, discussions were focused around,
"a series of appropriate measures to promote the electoral campaign of presidential candidate Reagan against Carter."
Elliott reported that in this context positive contact had been made with George Bush as well.

Journalist, David Teacher, a keen investigator of Cercle activities observes:
"It is becoming more and more apparent that the treatment reserved for Harold Wilson at the hands of the intelligence services was only the U.K end of an international phenomenon. Around 1975 a surprising number of government were targeted by their own (or others’) intelligence agencies because of their radical policies."
He goes on to list a number of known "destabilization" programs that the Cercle are known, or believed, to have been involved:
"The UK: the concerted efforts by elements in the British intelligence and security services, with CIA and BOSS, to bring down Wilson, Thorpe and Heath."
The USA: the CIA’s Operation Chaos, the FBI’s Cointelpro program and, of course, Watergate.
Australia: the loans scandal and other destabilization of Gough Whitlam by the CIA and SIS."
Additional Cercle targets may have been Olaf Palme, Sweden’s Prime Minister.

In 1987 the leading Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter carried a sensational story that the 03 section of the Swedish intelligence service, SAPO, were heavily involved in Palme’s assassination, following their fury at his policy of détente towards the Soviet Union, and possibly fearful that he may discover the extent of their implication in arms sales to Iran. Other "direct actions" possibly include a Coup d’etat in Belgium during 1973, "planned by gendarmerie officers and extreme right-wing groups."

By no means least were the allegations by France’s leading daily, Le Monde, which in 1978 revealed the activities of Circle member and head of the intelligence service SDECE, Alexandre de Marenches. Le Monde claimed that de Marenches led a domestic campaign of terrorism and disinformation. It is fairly apparent that these activities were, "designedly", to keep Francois Mitterand from office during the 1974 elections. However, with the exception of the Langemann papers, and an ISC memo published in Lobster 17, there are no other Cercle documents available to confirm these allegations.

Despite a strong focus on European issues, the Cercle were not unaware of the significance of establishing psyops "action centres" in North America. In 1975 the Washington Institute for the Study of Conflict (WISC) was launched under the chairmanship of George Ball.

Characteristically, Ball, one time Senior Managing Director of the enormous Wall Street international investment bank, Lehman Brothers, and Under Secretary of State (1961-66) was a member of the Trilateral Commission; on the steering committee of the Bilderberg Group and a member of the Council for Foreign Relations.

His association with the WISC mark him as a close friend of the Cercle. Others members of the WISC committee were Zgigniew Brzezinski and Kermit …

Four years later, in 1979, Maurice Tugwell, former head of Information Policy, a black propaganda unit set-up by British military intelligence in Northern Ireland, formed the Canadian Centre for Conflict Studies. CCS largely operates on contract work for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), the Canadian Dept. of National Defence plus others. We have seen that one aim of the Cercle was to aid in the election of President Reagan.

Presumably they can also cite this aim as being "accomplished"? Their close connection to George Bush may have extended to helping in his drive to election victory also. Canada also veered sharply to the right during the eighties.

We may never know the true extent to which the Cercle, and its black psyops "fronts" the ISC, WISC, CCS and others had in "affecting" a wholesale change in government in Europe, North America and elsewhere. Clearly the decade of the eighties witnessed a marked shift to the political right in the western democratic arena. It would be stretching credulity to suggest that this rapid swing in political ideology took place accidentally.

It is also abundantly obvious that the Cercle’s primary influence resided in its top level connections to the shadowy intelligence apparatus of the west. At the same time it possessed serious clout inside the sinews of transatlantic power that repose in the Council for Foreign Relations, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, the Trilateral Commission and the Bilderberg Group.

The foregoing outline - slim as it is - serves not only to underscore the inherent and potential weaknesses that reside in the institution of representative democracy, but also demonstrates the "will o’ the wisp" nature of covert activities that hide comfortably behind the public face of government.

That a small handful of influential men across the planet may be able to manipulate "free" elections to suit their personal and ideological advantage, is not a new concept. Generally, utterances of this sort are met by the blanket rejection: "conspiracist theory" and discarded out of hand. Such rebuffs rarely take into account the underlying evidence, fragmentary as it is. Perhaps they are not meant to?

Despite the wholesale collapse of the Soviet bloc, the Cercle has not packed up its victorious bags nor have its members disbanded.

Meet “Le Cercle” – Making Bilderberg Look Like Amateurs
http://www.globalresearch.ca/meet-le-cercle-making-bilderberg-look-lik e-amateurs/5606887
2 September 2017 - Graham Vanbergen

The Bildeberg group comically describe themselves as “a diverse group of political leaders and experts.” We are led to believe they are the world’s most secretive organisation. They spend hundreds of thousands of dollars keeping the press away from their sacred agenda and discussions. It has spent decades lying and obfuscating about itself. And yet, the activities of the Bilderberg group genuinely sit in the shade to an even more secretive and dangerous geo-political influencer called – Le Cercle.

Le Cercle originally set up as a Franco-German alliance, is a deep state milieu – an environment where powerful figures can secretly meet. They are careful to commit as little as possible to paper or p.c. – making them hard to hack, leak or track – and for good reason. It is smaller and considerably more secretive than Bilderberg.

Its purpose is to subvert the democratic principles and processes of individual countries and are by nature ideologically ‘hawkish’ – distributing propaganda, stoking fear of communist plots from Russia, vote rigging and hacking the accounts of politicians and prominent global figures. Promoting the ‘war on terror’ has been a major factor in their activities of recent years and in so doing broker weapons deals and setting up false flag operations the world over to suit its own agenda. It is reported that ‘Gladio‘ style attacks, much like the clandestine NATO “stay-behind” sabotage, guerrilla warfare and assassination operations in Europe have been conducted along with illegal business operations, financial fraud and arms dealing – all attributed to this group.

Characters such as Paul Wolfowitz, Paul Bremer, Donald Rumsfeld and Richard Perle (the original neo-con architects of the Iraq War and subsequent attacks across the Middle East) are all or have been members. Margaret Becket (Labour MP, previously Britain’s Foriegn Secretary, chair of the Intelligence Select Committee, sought to subvert the democratic election of Jeremy Corbyn as leader of the party), Alan Duncan (Minister of State at the Department for International Development), Norman Lamont (an ex Rothschild banker, former Tory MP and became UK Minister for Defence Procurement just in time to sign the Al-Yamamah arms deal.‎ He was Chancellor of the Exchequer when Black Wednesday transferred around £3,000,000,000 from UK taxpayers to currency traders. He was also European chair of Le Circle). William Hague, (Baron Hague of Richmond PC FRSL is a British Conservative politician and life peer. MP from 1989 and was the Leader of the Opposition from 1997 to 2001).

Jonathan Aitken (British Tory politician, LeCercle Chairman 1993-96), Michael Ancram (ex-chairman Conservative party, shadow foreign secretary, and Chairman of Le Cercle). Ancram was formerly a Member of Parliament (MP) and a member of the Shadow Cabinet. Since 2010 a member of the House of Lords, he is the only marquess in the House of Lords. All are known British contingent Le Cercle members.

In 2000, a single webpage at www.atlanticcircle.com (web-archive doc) described Le Cercle as

“an informal group of European and American professionals – politicians, retired Ambassadors, former Generals, lawyers and active participants in banking, oil, shipping, publishing and trading companies – who are interested in preserving a positive Atlantic dialogue.”

To the UK House of Lords, this group has been described as an “informal group meeting to discuss world affairs.” William Hague once described it as “a political group which organises conferences.” In 2007 the Washington Post (archive-doc) termed it a “foreign policy think tank established during the Cold War that reportedly included senior politicians, diplomats and intelligence agents worldwide.”

David Teacher, Le Cercle and paneuropa researcher, writes that

“the Cercle complex can be seen to be an international coalition of right-wing intelligence veterans, working internationally to promote top conservative politicians who would shape the world.”

The group has two HQ’s – one in the US and one in Europe. The US is more secretive, to the extent it is not known who the current chairman is. In Europe, past Chairs have been high profile figures such as Jonathan Aitken (1993-1996), Norman Lamont (over 10 years) and most recently, Michael Ancram. The Independent reported in 1997 that Jonathan Aiken had been dropped by Le Circle due to the political scandal that surrounded him with his libel and perjury case that ended with a prison sentence.

According to ‘Powerbase.info‘ Le Circle British regulars number about 15, drawn mostly from the rich Tory right. Leading political lights are Paul Channon and Alan Duncan. David Burnside, the former British Airways public affairs chief, is a member – not for his BA work but for his passionate espousal of Ulster Unionism. Viscount Cranborne, John Major’s former senior aide, has attended Cercle gatherings. Brian Crozier, the author and well-known Cold-Warrior with close ties to MI6 and the CIA, is a senior member. Anthony Cavendish, the former senior MI5 man, is an old Cercle hand. Nicholas Elliot, the ex-MI6 officer, used to go to their meetings.

The group meets biannually. Every autumn it meets in Washington DC and earlier in the year it meets in an “overseas” venue, usually in Europe. Approx 70 guests attend over a period of 3-4 days, the vast majority are male and universally classed as extreme right-wing. Bilderberg meetings usually end with mass protests, arrests and ample media coverage, Le Cercle meetings go unreported.

Attendees of Le Cercle are generally found to be part of the deep state – i.e. mostly made up of politicians, spooks, bankers, diplomats, military officers, editors and publishers or experts in geopolitical products such as energy. All are deep political actors with real influence. Members are almost exclusively from western or western-oriented countries. It is noteworthy that many important members tend to be affiliated with aristocratic circles in London and accusations of links to fascism and synarchist (rule by a secret elite) are anything but uncommon in this milieu.

The earliest known public reference to Le Cercle was probably in Time Out magazine’s 1975 leaked documents from the Institute for the Study of Conflict. To date there have been no American commercially-controlled media sources known to have mentioned the group.

Le Cercle was mentioned in 1980 in Der Spiegel (which also published the first article on the Bilderberg group). Le Cercle received more attention after a scandal broke out involving Jonathan Aitken and his libel case involving the Guardian and a Granada TV documentary that involved shady dealings with Middle Eastern elites, when he was European chairman. Members who were contacted by newspapers at the time all refused to answer any questions about the group.

A research proposal by Adrian Hänni noted that

“the Cercle is virtually nonexistent in academic research to this day. There are, as of yet, very few studies of the Cercle that are based on primary sources and meet basic academic standards.”

The 1982 Langemann Papers were the first significant leak to expose the activities of Le Cercle, confirming that the group was actively involved in influencing Western European elections.

There are reports that “throughout the 1970s Le Cercle was actively influencing elections in the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Italy and Belgium.”

Earlier documents in the Langemann Papers from November 1979 quote a planning paper by Brian Crozier about a Cercle complex operation “to affect a change of government in the United Kingdom that saw Margaret Thatcher into No10 Downing Street. The operation was set up three years earlier known as “Shield Group.”

In his Diaries, Jonathan Aitken’s close friend, Alan Clark, relates how he went with Mr Aitken and similarly right-thinking friends to a gathering in Muscat, Oman. He describes it as

“an Atlanticist society of right- wing dignitaries” and, later, as “a right-wing think-tank, funded by the CIA, which churns Cold War concepts around”.

It is noteworthy, although unconnected to Le Circle from this research that David Cameron sold three nuclear weapons (with the sanction of Margaret Thatcher), of a foreign state (south Africa’s collapsed apartheid regime), put them in unsafe hands (Oman) resulting in the Conservative party banking of nearly £19 million which then sets the pretext for a conflict that kills a million people in Iraq. All these events are highly likely to be linked one way or another to the activities of members of Le Circle.

Le Cercle has also been accused of actively destabilizing governments which opposed a conservative economic agenda, such as the conservative Monday Club which prepared a coup against Labour government of Harold Wilson. Wilson’s resignation has never been fully explained and was reported by the Guardian as:

“Prompted by CIA fears that Wilson was a Soviet agent – put in place after the KGB had, the spooks believed, poisoned Hugh Gaitskell, the previous Labour leader. These MI5 men burgled the homes of the prime minister’s aides, bugged their phones and spread black, anti-Wilson propaganda throughout the media. They tried to pin all kinds of nonsense on him: that his devoted political secretary, Marcia Williams, posed a threat to national security; that he was a closet IRA sympathiser.”

Following a Nasserite coup in Yemen (NewYorkTimes report 1964) in September 1962, Julian Amery (later Cercle chairman) met with King Hussein of Jordan and agreed to send Cercle attendee Neil McLean to report on the situation after which Amery met with McLean, David Stirling, Col Brian Franks and UK Prime Minister Alex Douglas-Home to organise an unofficial covert mercenary operation that led to crises in the Middle East—in Syria, Yemen and Kuwait.

Le Cercle – “Iran-Contra”, Arms-to-Iraq, Al-Yamamah arms deal

Wikispooks reports that: “Circle visitor John Carbaugh worked for GeoMiliTech Consultants Corporation, an arms dealing group directly involved in Iran-Contra (history Commons Doc). Others such as Margaret Carlisle were aides to Iran-Contra insiders. Cercle members Paul Channon and Alan Clark (British Conservative MP – served as a minister in Margaret Thatcher’s governments) are connected through their involvement in the Arms-to-Iraq affair ( The Independent report Dec 1992), also to the later chairman Jonathan Aitken, who himself was involved in the Al-Yamamah arms deal as well, as was another later chairman, Norman Lamont. Nadhmi Yuchi (wikileaks) is widely reported as having made a lot of money from arms deals to Saddam Hussein, amongst others. Lacking documents or testimony from Cercle members, inferences about Cercle activities remain unconfirmed.

The stage was set for a coup. The article continues – “Retired intelligence officers gathered with military brass and plotted a coup d’etat. They would seize Heathrow airport, the BBC and Buckingham Palace. Lord Mountbatten would be the strongman, acting as interim prime minister. The Queen would read a statement urging the public to support the armed forces, because the government was no longer able to keep order.”

Although this sounds somewhat far-fetched it was only September 2015 when it was reported that if Jeremy Corbyn did seize power in Downing Street, the military would conduct a ‘mutiny’.

From the Independent:

A senior serving general has reportedly warned that a Jeremy Corbyn government could face “a mutiny” from the Army if it tried to downgrade them. The unnamed general said members of the armed forces would begin directly and publicly challenging the labour leader if he tried to scrap Trident, pull out of Nato or announce “any plans to emasculate and shrink the size of the armed forces.” He told the Sunday Times: “The Army just wouldn’t stand for it.

This 2015 story is an extraordinary story appearing in national newspapers and has MI5/6 and deep state actors stamped all over it.

Interestingly, the latest generation of British Cercle members, whose predecessors were collectively very keen on joining the European Union, now want to keep Britain out of the emerging European superstate, perhaps having lost faith they can become a significant force within Europe. This would explain how they acted with American billionaires to subvert democracy and illegally swung the EU referendum in favour of a full exit. Carole Cadwalladr wrote about this in The Observer article “The Great British Brexit Robbery.” The paper is now being sued for publishing this scandal.

Le Cercle’s interest in “terrorism” and arms dealing lends support to the suggestion that it may have been important in devising the “War on Terror”.

It seems unlikely to be a coincidence that at least three members of this group (Brian Crozier, Robert Moss, Gerhard Lowenthal) gave presentations at the 1979 Jerusalem Conference on International Terrorism, the seminal event in the development of the establishment’s “War on Terror” narrative. Many of the other speakers were closely connected to known members.

Many members set up “terrorism research” organisations, which sheds new light on the “anti-communist” think tanks that they also set up, such as Interdoc.

Joël van der Reijden (Dutch investigative reporter specialising in the Deep State) infers that Le Cercle may be connected to the Strategy of Tension that the world has been experiencing in recent decades.

Ted Shackley was involved in oil deals after he left the CIA in 1979, facilitated by his close friend and fellow Cercle member, Conrad Gerber and oil smuggler John Deuss.

Funding for the group has changed over the years. The group states that it is “privately funded”. Multinational companies including Philips, Shell, the Ford Foundation and Standard Elektrik Lorenz have given the group money.

Robin Ramsay, editor of Lobster Magazine believes the CIA funds (Globalisation and Covert Politics Report) the group, a claim that Alan Clark also makes in his diaries. In the 1980s, the South African government was a major source of funds.

John E Lewis writes in his book The Mammoth Book of Cover-Ups (extract page) that Le Cercle was funded, amongst others, by the CIA for its “militant anti-leftism as it wars against it enemies more than jaws about them.”

In the last few years Le Cercle has become even more secretive with its activities largely unknown.
