Golden Lily ( " Kin no yuri " )
Almost as soon as World War II was over, United States of America armed forces began to discover stupendous caches of Japan war treasure. United
States Army General Douglas MacArthur, in charge of the U.S. occupying japan, reported finding 'great hoards of gold, silver, precious stones, foreign
postage stamps, engraving plates and . . . currency not legal in Japan'. U.S. General MacArthur officials arrested underworld boss Yoshio Kodama, who
worked in China - during World War II - selling opium and supervising collection shipments industrial metals such as platinum, titanium and tungsten
to Japan that was by-far the largest opium producer in Asia throughout the first half of the 20th century ( 1900 - 1950 ), initially in its colony of
Korea, then in Manchuria - seized in 1931.
Yoshio Kodama supplied heroin and liquor to occupied China in return for gold coins, jewelery and objects of fine art that Japan melted down into
ingots. Kodama returned to Japan - after the surrender - immensely rich. Before Yoshio Kodama went to prison he transferred part of his war treasures
to conservative politicians Ichiro Hatoyama and Ichiro Kono whom used those proceeds to finance the then newly created Liberal Party; precursor of the
party that has been ruling Japan - almost uninterruptedly - since 1949.
So lets get this straight, the US arrested some mafia underworld boss, who specialised in the drugs trade. Just before he went to prison he gave money
to 2 people who financed the political party that has been in power for over 60 years !!!
It does seem like the Japanese had stolen HUGEEEE amounts, some was stolen and ended up being the phillippines branch of the fund, Japan will have
managed to hold onto loads of it and a lot was re stolen or discovered after the war............. BUT IT GETS BETTER!!
"When Yoshio Kodama was released from prison in 1949 he went to work for the Central Intelligence Agency ( CIA ) and later became LOCKHEED AIRCRAFT
COMPANY Japan chief agent who bribed and blackmailed politicians to buy militarized LOCKHEED F-104 jet fighter aircraft and LOCKHEED 1011 (aka0 L-1011
(aka) AirBus passenger aircraft"
thats the link, if you scroll down and read the story it basically explains the whole story about the Japanese and Phillippine situation and how it
edit on 10-1-2012 by Equ1nox because: (no reason given)
1. Prince Chichibu and his staff inventoried all that plunder and put it aboard boats, usually disguised as hospital ships, bound for Japan
2. by early 1943 it was no longer possible for Japan to break through the Allied blockade
3. Japan Prince Chichibu therefore shifted his headquarters from Singapore to Manila ( Philippines ),
4.From 1942, Japan Prince Chichibu supervised the building of 175 Japan 'Imperial storage sites' to hide war treasure
5.As the war came to an end, Japan Prince Chichibu and Japan Prince Tsuneyoshi Takeda escaped back to Japan by submarine
6.United States special agents began to discover a few of the hidden gold repositories where it seemed a key figure was a Filipino American born in
Luzon in either 1901 or 1907 named Severino Garcia Diaz Santa Romana
7. After the war, he joined in Manila by U.S. Army Air Corps Captain Edward Lansdale of the Office of Strategic Services ( OSS ) - one of the two ( 2
) predecessor offices before the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency ( CIA ) ] - became one of America's most notorious Cold Warriors who manipulated
foreign governments and military forces in the Philippine Islands and French Indo-China ( now Viet Nam / Vietnam ), and eventually retired as U.S. Air
Force Major General Edward Lansdale.
8. Severino Garcia Diaz Santa Romana and U.S. Army Air Corps Captain Edward Lansdale ] opened about a dozen ( 12 ) Golden Lilies ( i.e. Japan Imperial
war storage sites sites ) in the high valleys north of Manila ( Philippine Islands
9. Back in Washington, D.C. it was decided at the highest levels, presumably by U.S. President Truman, to keep these discoveries secret and to funnel
the money into various off the record book slush funds for financing clandestine activities of the CIA.
