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.

  • The Civil War In The United States – By Marx & Engels
    I should start by saying that this is the first I have read of Marx, and honestly I haven’t studied deep into the American Civil War, so this book was very interesting to me. The book consists of written exchanges between Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, with a few others. It also includes passages from […]

  • Monkey Business Part 2: Bigfoot Book, Magazine, And Newsletter
    Sometimes expectations are somewhat above performance. I feel a little of that in the book “In The Valleys of the Noble Beyond”, by John Zada. Don’t get me wrong, I was pretty entertained by Zada’s navigating the isolated native communities of the British Columbia coast. Zada, (self-described from big-city Toronto) is a good writer, and […]
  • Review – Robert Kennedy Jr. -“The Real Anthony Fauci”
      Honestly, this is a difficult review for me to write. This book, “The Real Anthony Fauci”, by Robert Kennedy Jr. is a dose of “forbidden knowledge”.   This is the book the establishment does not want you to read. As proof, they have done everything they can to shore up support for Dr. Fauci […]
  • Review: “Columbus Was Last” By Patrick Huyghe
    How many myths, how many lies is the history of man built on? Perhaps one of the biggest lies is that Columbus discovered America. This mythology is pounded into us from grade school on, and provides a shady sense of national pride for Italian-Americans. The problem is, as author Patrick Huyghe describes, “Columbus Was Last”. […]
