    Default Boris Pash

    In charge of CIA assassination teams
    Went to Russian and fought with White Russians
    He was top counterintelligence officer for the Manhattan Project in Los Alamos, and, toward the end of the war, the military leader of the Operation ALSOS.
    Served under General Douglas MacArthur with Landsdale in Japan (1946-47). From 1948-51, he served as a military representative to the Central Intelligence Agency, and during this time, he was in charge of a controversial CIA program PB/7, also known as Operation Bloodstone which involved recruiting former German officers and diplomats who could be used in the covert war against the Soviet Union. This included former members of the Nazi Party such as Gustav Hilger and Hans von Bittenfield.
    He also served in Austria (1952-53), and in Washington, D.C. (1953-57)
    In 1954, he testified against Dr. Robert Oppenheimer
    Involved with Gottlieb in drug experiments.
    ALSOS went after both nuclear and chemical warfare and scientists
    ALSOS got 70.000 tons of U ore and many scientists, etc.

    Bloodstone was planning Cold War [Simpson] taking in many pro-nazi/anti-soviets
    Brought many high-level propagandists, bureaucrats, scientists, academics US
    Superseded by similar CIA programs when phased-out
    Championed by Wisner and Robert Lovett
    Killed double agents and persons in DP camps
    Pash earlier had had role in Japanese Depention camps in CA
    Was Chief of counterintelligence Manhattan Project
    Pash moved to CIA in March 1949 to form PB/7 – assassinations, kidnappings, druggings, etc.
    James Richards says he maybe was in DP and on AF1 – photos convincing.

    Yes, It seem he worked with Angleton.

    "The stakes in the search for the scientific expertise of Germany were high. The single most important American strike force, for example, was the Alsos raiding team, which targeted Axis atomic research, uranium stockpiles, and nuclear scientists, as well as Nazi chemical and biological warfare research. The commander of this assignment was U.S. Army Colonel Boris Pash, who had previously been security chief of the Manhattan Project - the United States’ atomic bomb development program - and who later played an important role in highly secret U.S. covert action programs. Pash succeeded brilliantly in his mission, seizing top German scientists and more than 70,000 tons of Axis uranium ore and radium products. The uranium taken during these raids was eventually shipped to the United States and incorporated in U.S. atomic weapons."
    (Simpson, Christopher, "Blowback," Collier Books, New York, 1988, p. 26.)

    "Another notable Bloodstone veteran is Boris Pash, a career intelligence officer identified in the Final Report of the U.S. Senate’s 1975-1976 investigation into U.S. intelligence activities as the retired director of the CIA unit responsible for planning assassinations"
    ("Blowback," p. 108). "
    "Blowback," p. 152-153 says:
    "The records of Operation Bloodstone add an important new piece of information to one of the most explosive public issues of today: the role of the U.S. government - specifically the CIA - in assassinations and attempted assassinations of foreign officials. According to a 1976 Senate investigation, a key official of Operation Bloodstone is the OPC officer who was specifically delegated responsibility for planning the agency’s assassinations, kidnappings, and similar ’wet work.’

    "Colonel Boris Pash, one of the most extraordinary and least known characters in American intelligence history... his work for U.S. intelligence agencies places him in the critical office given the responsibility for planning postwar assassination operations... Colonel Pash is one of the few remaining originals of U.S. intelligence, and his experience in ’fighting the communists’ goes back to the 1917 Russian Revolution.

    He was in Moscow and Eastern Europe in those days with his father, a missionary of Russian extraction, and the young Pash spent much of the Soviet civil war working on the side of the White armies, then with Czarist refugees who had fled their country. In the 1920s Pash signed on as a reserve officer with the U.S. military intelligence service... he... played a role in the internment of Japanese civilians in California, and was soon assigned as chief counterintelligence officer on the Manhattan Project, the super secret U.S. effort to develop the atomic bomb.


    (More than a decade later it was Colonel Pash’s testimony that helped seal the fate of scientist Robert Oppenheimer in the well-known 1954 security case.)
    Before the war was out, it will be recalled, Colonel Pash led the series of celebrated special operations known as the ALSOS Mission that were designed to capture the best atomic and chemical warfare experts that the Nazis had to offer.
    "After the war Colonel Pash served as the army’s representative on Bloodstone in the spring of 1948, when the tasks of that project, including recruiting defectors, smuggling refugees out from behind the Iron Curtain, and assassinations, were established. Bloodstone’s ’special operations,’ as defined by the Pentagon, could ’include clandestine warfare, subversion, sabotage and... assassination,’ according to the 1948 Joint Chiefs of Staff records. In March 1949, Pash was assigned by the army to the OPC division of the CIA... His five-man CIA unit, known as PB/7, was given a written charter that read in part that,
    ’PB/7 will be responsible for assassinations, kidnapping, and such other functions as from time to time may be given it... by higher authority.’"
    From "Dulles" by Leonard Mosley (A Biography of Eleanor, Allen and John Foster. London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1978.), we find, p. 459:
    "But now he [Allen Dulles] was interested in the more sinister Agency experiments in mind-bending drugs, portable phials of lethal viruses, and esoteric poisons that killed without trace. Allen’s sense of humor was touched when he learned that the unit working on these noxious enterprises was called the "Health Alteration Committee" (directed by Dr. Sidney Gottlieb and Boris Pash)... Richard Bissell... had now succeeded Frank Wisner as deputy director of Plans..."
    To learn more about the mind-control and torture experiments of Pash and Gottlieb, read "Journey Into Madness: The True Story of Secret CIA Mind Control and Medical Abuse" by Gordon Thomas (Bantam Books, New York, 1989).

    One of the people they killed was Frank Olson (a CIA germ warfare doctor whose specialty was anthrax), while they were working on Subproject-68, also known as MK-ULTRA. MK-ULTRA started as "Project Bluebird," set up on April 20, 1950, by CIA Director Admiral Roscoe Hillenkoetter (who later was a member of NICAP), and on July 20, 1950, they began using sodium amytal, Benzedrine and other drugs to "brainwash" prisoners. In September 1950, the "Miami News" published an article under the headline BRAIN WASHING TACTICS which was considered the first formal use of the term. One of Gottlieb’s partners was Dr. Harold Wolff, who appears to be a Paperclip doctor. He worked with Parke-Davis and "...remained closely connected with the M-K Ultra brainwashing project" (p. 191). He helped set up an apartment and introduce LSD to the hippies in San Francisco, and worked on Project Mindbender (a Manchurian-Candidate type operation) with William Buckley.

    Isn’t it interesting that so many of the participants in the most secret of secrets of World War II are still very involved in the Kennedy assassination and other more current affairs. Many books and articles have been written about the CIA being involved in the JFK assassination, and now you know that the man in charge of CIA assassinations was Boris Pash, formerly chief of security for the Manhattan Project. He was also head of the group trying to capture Hitler’s advanced technology, including "flying saucers" and other secrets.

    The book "ZR Rifle - The Plot To Kill Kennedy And Castro" by Claudia Furiati, p. 36, says that a man named William Harvey had been in charge of the CIA post in West Berlin until 1960, then was placed in charge of CIA assassinations by Richard Bissell in 1961. The plans to assassinate political leaders was code-named "ZR-RIFLE," headed by Harvey. Bo Gritz said on p. 525 of his book: "The Kennedy assassination was code-named ’ZR-RIFLE’." It seems apparent to me that Harvey and Pash were wearing the same pair of pants.

    In 1941, Ian Fleming, the future creator of the "James Bond" stories, and at that time a high ranking officer of British Intelligence, suggested to William Donovan that he set up a specially trained and selected assassination unit. PB/7 (Pash Boris Seven) was the original of the "Agent 007" concept. If my memory is correct, I believe Nixon stated that William Harvey was the real 007.

    I assume Pash was Agent 001, or perhaps he had seven agents working for him (originally five). If you want to understand more of how these various factions such as CIA, KGB, Nazis, Communists, FBI, etc., can be fighting each other and working together at the same time, you need to understand who was above them, controlling them. To understand that, look to British Intelligence! You will find British Intelligence to be an operation of British and European Royalty and "Aristocracy"!

    E. Howard Hunt, while in prison in December, 1975, in an interview with the "New York Times," said that the head of the CIA assassination unit was Boris Pash. Pash was assigned to Angleton at this time (see "Final Judgment," p. 207). Angleton was head of the Israel desk of the CIA and was very pro-Israel. He was also closely involved with Meyer Lansky.

    In "Cold Warrior," the biography of James Jesus Angleton by Tom Mangold, he says on page 362:
    "I would like to place on the record, however, that Angleton’s closest professional friends overseas, then and subsequently, came from the Mossad (the Israeli intelligence-gathering service) and that he was held in immense esteem by his Israeli colleagues and by the state of Israel, which was to award him profound honors after his death."
    His place was taken after his death by William Colby. When Kissinger wanted to "get LaRouche," he turned to Angleton for help. Angleton’s tombstone is in Hebrew.

    On page 97 of "Final Judgment," Piper says that "The ZR/Rifle Team, in fact, was one of Angleton’s pet in-house CIA projects, which he ran in conjunction with his CIA colleague, William Harvey."

    According to Claudia Furiati, Joseph Schreider was in charge of the CIA laboratories and of developing poisons for assassinations, and says that Harvey was in charge of political assassinations, working out of the Miami office run by [Paperclip] Shackley, and was working with Schreider to try to poison Castro. Above we have Boris Pash and Sidney Gottlieb working together in the same manner. We have Pash and Harvey in the same locations, doing the same jobs, in charge of the same projects - talk about featherbedding. I believe that Harvey was actually at headquarters in Langley, over Shackley in Miami.

    "Blowback," p. 153, says that Pash
    "...served as the Army’s representative on Bloodstone in the spring of 1948, when the tasks of that project, including recruiting defectors, smuggling refugees out from behind the Iron Curtain, and assassinations, were established. In March 1949, Pash was assigned by the Army to the OPC division of the CIA."
    Harvey died June 6, 1976, according to Dick Russell, and Pash was in his 80s in 1988 according to Simpson.

    To me what is especially intriguing about Pash is his relationship with William Harvey during the Manhattan Project.
