Spies and charities and NGOs

http://www.guardian.co.uk/international/story/0,3604,1482966,00.html

The Guardian, 13 May 2005, reported that Russia claims spies are at work within British and American NGOs.

Russia's spy chief, Nikolai Patrushev, told parliament that they had discovered British and American spies working for non-governmental organisations. According to Patrushev, these spies had helped foment uprisings in former Soviet republics.

Among those he named was the British medical charity Merlin, which denied the allegation.

Mr Patrushev said: "Our opponents are steadily and persistently trying to weaken Russian influence in the commonwealth of independent states and the international arena as a whole. The latest events in Georgia, Ukraine and Kyrgyzstan unambiguously confirm this."

Mr Patrushev accused an American NGO, the International Republican Institute, of planning to spend £2.6m to finance opposition groups in Belarus.

Mr Patrushev said there were spies in the US Peace Corps.

A quote from www.whale.to:

"One of the strangest CIA connections to Jonestown was ... World Vision, an evangelical order which often fronts for the CIA. They performed espionage work for the CIA in Southeast Asia while Operation Phoenix (the murderous project that left 40,000 people dead) was in full effect. In Honduras, they maintained a presence at CIA contra recruiting camps in the war against the Sandinistas. In Lebanon, the fascist Phalange butchered Palestinians at World Vision's camp. In Cuba, their refugee camps hosted numerous members of the anti-Castro terrorist group Alpha 66 of Bay of Pigs fame. After the Guyana massacre, World Vision developed a scheme to repopulate Jonestown with CIA-linked mercenaries from Laos. Laos, of course, was where the CIA was running it's "secret war" during Vietnam, which for the most part was a smokescreen for a widespread opium trafficking operation.

"One particularly important World Vision official was John Hinckley, Sr., an oil man, reputed CIA officer, and friend of George Bush. You may have heard of his son. Less than four months before Hinckley Jr. became known as Jodie Foster's biggest fan, another member of the World Vision order, Mark Chapman, gunned down John Lennon..."
