as Former 'Early' Black Panther wan undercover FBI informer


www.sfgate.com

The man who gave the Black Panther Party some of its first firearms and weapons training - which preceded fatal shootouts with Oakland police in the turbulent 1960s - was an undercover FBI informer, according to a former bureau agent and an FBI report.

One of the Bay Area's most prominent radical activists of the era, Richard Masato Aoki was known as a fierce militant who touted his street-fighting abilities. He was a member of several radical groups before joining and arming the Panthers.

This should come as no surprise.I am sure there were a few 'informants' in the BP.

Interesting read though,I thought I would share it with you all.

I am not well versed in the BP's but I was a child living in the Bay Area in the 60's and early 70's and I believe that my parents knew some of them personally.(just from listening to them talk amongst themselves ) I would love to hear some more informed opinions.

Great find and thank you for bringing it! I think they misuse the term informant here though. When I think of informant, I think of a guy who is dirty himself, trusted by friends and they flip to work against those who called him a friend. This guy, they just strolled right up to and asked if he wouldn't mind joining Lefty groups to file reports. Wow..... I'd call him an agent without paycheck or benefit plan. He joined directly FOR the FBI by how that reads...they didn't find him already an established Radical.

Now that is scary....

This is also another case, however old (or maybe that makes the whole thing worse) where we see Federal Agencies giving firearms to known criminals...because they are criminals...and never really knowing quite what happened to any of it. Just how long has all that been going on now?? I wonder if the problem isn't criminals getting guns in America all these years, but our own Federal Government insuring a steady supply in any of a number of ways.
Shame on the FBI! (then and now)

You can bet on that one, Bootyac.

It's Cointel at it's finest. Think we saw some of that just recently with the Occupy movement. The FBI was severely critical of the civil rights movement and the fringe "black power" movement, and plotted counter intelligence acts against them. Having one of their informants funnel guns to the group so they could use it some deadly attack against police? That must have been a pipe dream for the Feds.

You know, the thing that pisses me off most about this, especially when Occupy is mentioned...... I knew people in camp who would certainly have done stupid things and hurt people if they'd been HANDED the weapons. It'd never happen otherwise and nothing did. It would have taken someone handing them the tools to make it all too easy for those types to say no. It wasn't all by any means and it wouldn't excuse their actions.

Do we need our own Government handing the weapons to people though. Especially when the reason they're being handed over is BECAUSE they are criminals and considered dangerous. Indeed.. Occupy could have and still could get brutal and terribly ugly if some criminals in government handed weapons to people who have no legal business owning them. Some days..one does have to wonder who the criminals are and how far back it all goes?

Wow along the lines of the SLA being started by the violence promoting mind-controlled Donald DeFreeze -- the Black Cultural Association was set up by MKUltra, CIA - FBI cointelpro style.

I used to publish an activist newsletter with Sara Jane Olson and then five years later she was put in prison for helping the SLA. So then I said that her main defense should be that the SLA was started up as a fake government group.

So now we find out that the first guns and gun training for the Black Panthers was provide and promoted by an FBI employee - paid informant.

This is very much like the recent RNC set-up in St. Paul Minnesota -- there's a great PBS doc revealing an FBI informant aggressively promoted and mind-controlled two young naive activists into making molatov cocktails -- just to justify the pre-emptive arrests and military-style imperial crackdown against dissent.



oh yeah and the assassination of David Graham because he confronted the FBI about meeting two of the supposed 9/11 hijackers who happened to be living with an FBI-informant!! Sander Hicks confronted the FBI about it and their reaction was more than suspicious:

Thanks for the article -- a new one for me. Yeah basically Sara emailed me -- this was in 2000 - asking me to publish a letter in the local PULSE newspaper, an activist free paper. I didn't do this because what I had written for my email activist Twin Cities list was that Sara should have made the Donald DeFreeze CIA mind control Cointelpro her main defense argument.

Looking back I do feel that I should have written the letter as she recommended based on the link you have posted. I didn't understand that community public support was so important to a legal trial -- I just thought it should have been evidence based and so any evidence should just be submitted - that a letter in the local newspaper might just create more problems than not. At the time I was doing tons of activism with some serious campaigns that were creating a backlash against me personally at the University -- in fact that activist email list was attacked with my email account wiped out. I asked the computer desk and they said the only way it was possible was someone with an administrative connection and then the treasurer of the University who helped me divest $1.5 million from the University portofolio in Total Oil using slave labor in Burma - -she was then attacked by the administration who also read her private emails. So my friend who was helping me then suddenly had all her emails deleted from her account also.

Yeah anyway so that was my last contact with Sara but she did cook us some great meals while we were working on publishing the free activist zine - -back in the early 1990s, around 1994. It was called "Apple Spider" --

Apple Spider ("Weaving a web of resistance in the Twin Cities Progressive Community") is a new publication of the Arise! Resource Center and Bookstore in Minneapolis. The 6-page issue seen (December 1995) contains material on the boycott against Jessica McClintock clothing, a report on charges against members of the Twin Cities Coalition to Defend Mumia Abu-Jamal, information about the campaign to free Leonard Peltier, and an action alert regarding Minneapolis-based Nash Finch Company, as well as a calendar listing events and meetings through mid-January 1996. (2441 Lyndale Ave. S., Minneapolis, MN 55405, 612-298-8489).


There it is

So I never suspected her past but she did tell us about when she was in Zimbabwe and then I did go see her at the theatre and then she met my family after she gave me a lift home once. So I met her daughters briefly and she had a nice beautiful big house in St. Paul.

So the fact is the "terrorist" group she joined was started by the CIA Cointelpro mind control -


The Symbionese Liberation Army, like the People's Temple, was a creation of the CIA. The SLA had at its core a clique of black ex-convicts from Vacaville Prison. Donald DeFreeze, otherwise known as Cinque, led the SLA. He was formerly an informant for the LAPDs Criminal Conspiracy Section and the director of Vacaville's Black Cultural Association (BCA), a covert mind control unit with funding from the CIA channeled through SRI. The Menlo Park behavior modification specialists experimented with psychoactive drugs administered to members of the BCA. Black prisoners were programmed to murder selected black leaders once on the outside. The CIA/SRI zombie killer hit list included Oakland school superintendent Dr. Marcus Foster, and Panthers Huey Newton and Bobby Seale, among others. DeFreeze stated that at Vacaville in 1971-72, he was the subject of a CIA mind control experiment. He described his incarceration on the prisons third floor, where he was corralled by CIA agents who drugged him and said he would become the leader of a radical movement and kidnap a wealthy person. After his escape from Vacaville (an exit door was left unlocked for him), that's exactly what he did.


CIA MIND CONTROL AT STANFORD RESEARCH INSTITUTE By Alex Constantine December 1996

More here


At Vacaville, Dr. Hamilton worked with Black men like psychiatrist Dr. Isaac Slaughter, and CIA contractor Colston Westbrook to produce inmate zombie assassins and political “patsies” out of Black inmates. Their most infamous creation was virtual reality Black revolutionary, Donald Defreeze, of the Symbionese Liberation Army. Dr. Hamilton’s cover was exposed by Congressman Leo Ryan in October of 1978, which may have led among other things to his assassination on November 18, 1978 in Guyana.

In the mid-70's I read a series of articles by Mae Brussell in an alternative newspaper published in the Bay area. (May have been The Realist). Though she has died, her work has been preserved on www.maebrussell.com, and if you click on Articles you will find a series about The SLA and Cinque.

She claimed that the SLA was a CIA or other Black Ops front and that Cinque was brainwashed at Vacaville. She connected many other dots as well, long before other researchers and investigators were at that time. I was terrified after reading those articles. But I recommend them.

Of course, I know nothing - personally - about any of this. [winkers]

The SLA was the CIA - Mae Brussell -- thanks!

Yeah basically my position is people need to be paranoid about this stuff. I had my phone tapped by the FBI back in the early 1990s and apparently latter also. I had a friend tell me that one of his girlfriends had turned into an FBI informant but then he latter -- like 10 years later - said he never said that. Hmm. So things get strange real fast when you can't trust your significant others, etc. Then Paul Wellstone got disappeared.

I actually outed one of my professors, the director of my graduate program no less, promoting Werner von Braun in our graduate newsletter and he co-organized a JFK assassination conference with Jim Fetzer that was disowned by Peter Dale Scott. This professor said Werner von Braun was his "mentor" and anyway then he emailed me threatening with saying I would never be published again in the University newspaper where I was a paid op-ed writer (all my op-eds were fact checked).

So anyway -- I called that op-ed "Truth Repressed by Psychic Vampires" -- The Nazi Connection to the John F. Kennedy Assassination Glad to see this one from Mae Brussell also -- I assume she mentions Werner von Braun. Peter Dale Scott, after I emailed him about that connection, told me to be careful.

Yep sometimes it's better to be paranoid.

Thanks for the link.

The FBI never really shut down CoIntelPro, it's been revived to discredit the Occupy movement, and the BP's have always been chief on their target list.

Oh yeah when I was making a progressive activist free zine -- I had a P.O. Box -- I used to distribute my zine freely in the coffee shops and the main anarchist coffeeshop where I was a regular -- suddenly I noticed this crazy right wing racist zine. The zine was filled with lies and bizarre claims to stir up trouble. So I looked at the P.O. Box and it was the number right next to mine in the post office. I knew right there it was a Cointelpro attempt at "divide and conquer" and I notified the cafe staff and they removed the zine from the cafe.

So this cafe was then raided by the police later on -- I actually had a precognitive dream about it, now that I am reminded of that event. That was one of my early precognitive dreams so I had forgotten about it.

Anyway that happened to Sander Hicks recently also -- his cafe got raided and then shut down on trumped up health code violations. In our case the anarchist activist cafe was actually owned by a former World Bank consultant for oil business in Nigeria and then he became a leftist hippie when he married a Peace Corps lady from Nigeria and then he became the hippy land lord for the area - so he paid $50,000 to fix up the cafe so the cops couldn't shut it down. haha.

So then the FBI raided the apartments above that cafe -- I think I gave the link earlier in the thread -- against the Freedom Road group that I knew about.

So anyway that Freedom Road group organized the RNC protest march and so then the FBI used an informant that ended up in a leadership position in the Freedom Road but then when the FBI raided she vanished. So then Freedom Road knew right away she had been an informant the whole time.

Yep it's best to be paranoid about this stuff.
