Review: “The Almost Classified Guide to CIA Front Companies” By Wayne Madsen

March 7, 2018

For those of us who dabble in spy-hunting, Wayne Madsen has provided 400 pages of companies that he suggests are CIA fronts. The full title is “The Almost Classified Guide to CIA Front Companies, Proprietaries & Contractors”. Many of these are well known, but there are hundreds I have never heard of. Additionally, there are scores of outfits like Exxon Mobile that he categorizes as “CIA partner”, extending the field into the very core of American capitalism.

I believe this book is a good place to begin examining a particular company, but I should extend this caution; I looked at his reference for “Evergreen International Airlines”, a defunct company that I am very familiar with. I researched and wrote for years about Evergreen, which took over most of the CIA’s propriety airlines after the revelations of The Church Committee hearings. Madsen includes Evergreen Supertanker Services in his summary of Evergreen’s operation, which is incorrect. The supertanker shipping lines operate out of Asia and are not part of Evergreen Aviation business in any way. Hopefully this is one of the rare mistakes in this otherwise very useful book.

Madsen missed another name related to Evergreen Aviation that would have fit very nicely in this book; that is “Congress Financial”. Congress Financial was confirmed to me by two sources to be a funding mechanism for CIA fronts, and provided money to keep Evergreen out of one of their many runs at bankruptcy.

I think this book can be very useful, but once on the trail watch the footprints carefully.

  • Carter Page And The Real “Spygate”
    During the Presidential campaign, “Mafia Don” was able to turn criticism of his staff’s use of “Alternative Facts” into the catchphrase “Fake News”. That label has stuck in an “I’m rubber, you’re glue” fashion and worked in Trump’s favor. Now, with increased pressure on Trump’s crime family, carnival barker-in-chief Trump has turned scrutiny of Russian […]
  • Jeffery Kaye Interview: U.S. Used Biological Warfare On North Korea
    In April we looked at a report by Dr. Jeffrey Kaye that detailed how the U.S. military and CIA dropped Plague-infested fleas onto North Korean villages. This new information Kaye dug up answers a lot of questions from that era – and introduces us to a long line of biological war projects that coincidentally dovetails […]
  • “It Can’t Happen Here” Predicted Trump In 1935
    It’s not often that I read and review fiction, but with the Trump presidency devolving into a desperate, rabid beast it was time to read “It Can’t Happen Here” by Sinclair Lewis. The book, which was written in 1935 as Fascism was rising in Europe, accurately predicted the rise of an authoritarian like Mein Trumpf. […]
  • Why The U.S. Has Hammered Nicaragua For Decades
    There’s lots of trouble going on in Nicaragua right now, after a seemingly quiet period post-Reagan administration. Like Venezuela, Nicaragua has been squeezed for years and years. No matter how much the U.S. objects, these countries exhibit elements of socialism which have pulled millions of poor people into a better existence. Now, there are riots […]
  • My Wrestling Team
    I was prompted to revisit this post from 2011; “My Wrestling Team”: Wrestling. It’s the toughest sport I’ve ever competed in, and I guess you could say it was my first martial art. This was back in the day when students died fasting and sweating trying to make weight. I remember going entire school days […]
