Assassination Techniques of the CIA and KGB

In his book Target Patton: The Plot to Assassinate General George S. Patton (Regnery Publishing Inc.: 2008), Robert K. Wilcox sets forth the evidence that General Patton was assassinated, the first step (the auto accident) probably having been staged by an OSS agent named Douglas Bazata on the orders of American General William "Wild Bill" Donovan (who was likely a British agent). (The second step was Patton's sudden death in the hospital two weeks later, when he was on the verge of being discharged.) Bazata--working for the OSS (later called the CIA)--has revealed his involvement in numerous assassinations, of Americans as well as foreign nationals.

At p. 209 Wilcox documents methods by which both the CIA and KGB assassinate political opponents. I quote from his book, below, as support for my "Log of Accidental Deaths," the implication being, of course, that arranging accidents and heart attacks is what the spooks do if they want to get rid of someone, and happens far more commonly than we suspect. Wilcox's footnotes are at the bottom.

"[A scenario such as introducing a harmful substance from a window into Patton's hospital room] is not far fetched in the clandestine world following World War II. Exploding cigars, poison needle umbrellas, even radioactive coffee have been publicly shown to have been weapons in the Cold War arsenals of the CIA and KGB.[11] World War II was an incubator for such grisly exotica, including biochemical assassination weapons. They were used surreptitiously by both sides. By the start of the Cold War, the Russians operated a "Special Bureau" with a lab for "undetectable means of exterminating human beings." [12] For instance, Soviet agents used an "atomizer" containing a bio-poison "which leaves no wound or other evidence of the cause of death.[13] "Natural killers" were created that could induce heart attack, "cerebral apoplexy," and other medical maladies leaving little or no trace.[14] For assassination, according to a formerly classified CIA study, "the contrived accident is the most effective technique. When successfully executed, it causes little excitement and is only casually investigated." [15] In a hospital, "drugs can be very effective," the study continues, "if the assassin is trained as a doctor or a nurse and the subject is under medical care. [It] is an easy and rare method. An overdose of morphine administered as a sedative will cause death without disturbance and is difficult to detect." Bazata told the Spotlight that a form of "refined cyanide" can "cause or appear to cause" embolism.

[There follows a discussion of the Soviets' use of traffic accidents and hospitals as methods of murder. On pp. 222-23, Wilcox discusses the death of Ukrainian nationalist Stepan Bandera, who:]

"...had been found dying outside the entrance to his apartment in Munich, Germany, in 1959. After autopsy, the death had been officially ruled the result of a natural heart attack. Little publicity was given to the death. But in a well-publicized trial in 1961, Stashinsky [a defected Soviet assassin] had testified he had been ordered by the KGB to assassinate Bandera, proof of Soviet assassination ams and methods that the outside world could not ignore. Stashinsky had killed Bandera with a specially designed gun that sprayed gaseous hydrogen cyanide in Bandera's face. The cyanide, a massive artery and vein constrictor, had induced heart failure. He had used the same "spray" gun two years earlier, Stashinsky confessed, to assassinate another Ukrainian leader, Lev Rebet--also thought to have been a natural death--and been told then that the weapon had been used successfully many times prior.

"On Patton?"

  1. Any weapon whatever that will be formed against you will have no success, and any tongue at all that will rise up against you in the judgment you will condemn. This is the hereditary possession of the servants of Jehovah, and their righteousness is from me,” is the utterance of Jehovah.
    55 Hey there, all YOU thirsty ones! Come to the water. And the ones that have no money! Come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk even without money and without price.
    Isaiah 54:17-55:1

  2.  “The traveling merchants of these things, who became rich from her, will stand at a distance because of [their] fear of her torment and will weep and mourn, saying, ‘Too bad, too bad—the great city [Babylon the Great- the worldwide empire of false religion], clothed with fine linen and purple and scarlet, and richly adorned with gold ornament and precious stone and pearl, because in one hour such great riches have been devastated!’


    "YOU will not need to fight in this instance. Take YOUR position, stand still and see the salvation of Jehovah in YOUR behalf..."


    "...take up the complete suit of armor from God...Stand firm, therefore, with YOUR loins girded about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness, and with YOUR feet shod with the equipment of the good news of peace. Above all things, take up the large shield of faith, with which YOU will be able to quench all the wicked one’s burning missiles. Also, accept the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the spirit, that is, God’s word [the Bible]..."


    "For the weapons of our warfare are not fleshly..."

  3. I am leaving these abstruse Biblical quotations on here, as comments, not because they have anything useful to add, but because I view them as thinly veiled threats to me personally.

  6. on september 4 2010 you said:

    "The Catholic connection among the people who have been persecuting me in these disciplinary actions, as well as holding powerful positions in Colorado and nationally, is starting to pique my interest."


    well that doesn't surprise me as one of Jehovah's witnesses (by the way i am not an official spokesperson). Hitler, Franco and Mussolini were all catholic. It's one thing for a government official to engage in criminal activity. But to wrap onesself in the clergy cloth and hold up a crucifix while aiding and abetting said criminal activity is a far lower level of depravity. That is why Babylon the Great will recieve a swifter punishment.

    Who is Babylon the Great ? “Come, I will show you the judgment upon the great harlot who sits on many waters,  with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, whereas those who inhabit the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”(Revelation 17:1,2)

    Babylon the great has an illicit relationship with the kings of the earth (the political powers). This Babylon assists political powers as they engage in various crimes including wars. In fact not a single war in history could have been fought without the active assistance of the clergy. As Lydia Lunch once said "religion is not the 0pi@te of the masses, it is the crack c0c@ine of the masses because it unleashes terrible violence."

  7. Is this a paradox? The more clandestine the assassination, the less legitimate it appears. Yet now certain executve orders make it possible to disappear or kill anyone without due process.

  8. Yes, we are killing people routinely via drones in the Middle East, people who never harmed or threatened us in the slightest respect. The U.S. is the scourge of the world.
