‘It stinks’: report of Trump’s Fart Act blows through Washington

Leaked draft of a new bill reportedly suggests America abandons WTO rules and replaces them with an oddly-named new actA report that Donald Trump is looking to walk away from the World Trade Organisation and instead adopt a United States Fair and Reciprocal Tariff Act, or Fart Act, has been greeted with loud amusement on Twitter.Axios reported that it had received a leaked early draft of a bill ordered by the president, that would see America take the unlikely step of abandoning WTO rules, allowing Trump to raise tariffs without the consent of Congress.

As an editor who writes some headlines at the NY Post can I just say I’m really psyched about the FART Act

Did they name it the “FART Act” to troll the president? https://t.co/kqTqzlOD0X

The naming of the FART Act has convinced me that Deep State subversion is real. And pretty awesome.

WTO has its flaws, but the “United States Fair and Reciprocal Tariff Act,” aka the U.S. FART Act, stinks. American consumers pay for tariffs. Time to switch tactics. https://t.co/OfyOFA1neU

Gutachten zum Kalten Krieg: Historiker: BND war weitgehend ahnungslos
 

mikenova shared this story from n-tv.de – Politik.

Politik

Ernst Uhrlau, einstiger Präsident des Bundesnachrichtendienstes (3. v. r.) muss mit einem vernichtenden Urteil über den BND leben - die Historiker Bodo Hechelhammer, Klaus-Dietmar Henke, Jost Dülffer, Rolf-Dieter Müller (2. v. r.) und Wolfgang Krieger halten ihn für in weiten Teilen unfähig.

Sonntag, 10. Dezember 2017

Der Kalte Krieg war die Hochzeit der Spione in Ost und West – doch die Agenten der Bundesrepublik scheinen davon nicht viel mitbekommen zu haben. Laut Historikern waren sie weitgehend ahnungslos und unfähig.

Der Bundesnachrichtendienst hat sich nach Einschätzung von Forschern im Kalten Krieg in weiten Teilen als unfähig erwiesen. Zu diesem Fazit kommt Rolf-Dieter Müller, Mitglied einer unabhängigen Historikerkommission, die seit 2011 im BND-Auftrag dessen Geschichte erforscht.

Der BND habe während des Kalten Krieges “alle größeren Krisen verschlafen”, etwa den Mauerbau 1961 oder die Kubakrise 1962, sagte Müller dem “Spiegel”. Den Aufstand der Ostdeutschen gegen das kommunistische DDR-Regime am 17. Juni 1953 habe man in Pullach sogar für eine “Inszenierung Moskaus” gehalten.

Laut Müller waren die Einblicke des Geheimdienstes in die DDR “oft armselig”, die Militäraufklärung habe “nur zeitweise” funktioniert, und vom Balkan und von anderen Teilen Südosteuropas habe der BND “auch keine Ahnung” gehabt. Weder in der DDR noch in irgendeinem anderen Ostblockland habe der BND über eine Spitzenquelle verfügt.

Müller stützte sich bei seinen Recherchen auf BND-interne Unterlagen. Die Kommission hat besonderen Zugang zum BND-Archiv. Der BND ist der einzige Auslandsnachrichtendienst in Deutschland. Bis Ende 2018 ziehen große Teile des BND von Pullach bei München nach Berlin.

(5) Klaus-Dieter Fritsche retired: The conductor of the German services goes – politics
 

mikenova shared this story from tagesspiegel.de: News.

It is the end of an era. And yet so quiet that hardly anyone perceives it. On Thursday, Klaus-Dieter Fritsche said in Berlin on the sidelines of a symposium on the subject of intelligence services, this was his last working day. Without excitement, without pathos. When asked if he was relieved, the state secretary responsible for the intelligence services in the Chancellor’s Office replied as usual, “I am glad to have survived 21 years as a political official”.

For a political official, he is politically different from his expert. But CSU-man Fritsche has managed to stay with several bosses as a mastermind of the German security architecture. That he is leaving is due to his age. Fritsche turns 65 in May. Now he is retiring from vacation. And leaves a spacious gap.

Since October 1996 Fritsche worked for the intelligence services. At that time, the Bamberg administrative lawyer was vice president of the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV). In 2005 he began to become a leader at the federal level. Fritsche took over the post of secret service coordinator in the chancellery.

He uses the post to create a network

He is responsible for federal intelligence services, ie BfV, BND and the Military Shielding Service (MAD). In December 2009, it went up to the top, Fritsche became state secretary in the Federal Ministry of the Interior. He used the post to create a network that would strengthen the ministry’s dominance and thus make the defense against terror and extremism more efficient. The system Fritsche was born.

The core of the strategy was targeted personnel policy. In 2011, Fritsche threaded the change from Gerhard Schindler to the BND’s executive chair . Schindler was previously Ministerialdirektor in the Ministry of the Interior, so a man from Fritsches sphere of influence. At the BND, the affable Schindler inherited Ernst Uhrlau, who was endowed with an impressive self-confidence. With the Schindler personnel, Fritsche brought the BND, which is subordinate to the Chancellery, closer to the Ministry of the Interior. Then followed Stage Two.

In August 2012, Fritsche placed at the head of the Federal Police and Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution two men from the Ministry of Interior. Head of Division Dieter Romann took over the Federal Police, Ministerial Director Hans-Georg Maassen the BfV. Thus Fritsche strengthened the binding of both authorities to the Ministry of the Interior, to which they are assigned. The predecessors of Romann and Maassen had not come from the ministry.

His successor is Johannes Geismann

The system Fritsche held, although BfV and BND had to take heavy hits. The NSU shock set to the protection of the Constitution, the BND was raved in the NSA affair. Angela Merkel was annoyed and wanted more control over the intelligence services. She classified Fritsche as the most skilled assistant and created for him in the chancellery the “Commissioner for the Intelligence Services”, in the rank of State Secretary. So Fritsche left 2014 “his” Ministry of Interior. And he had to allow Wolfgang Schäuble in 2016, then Federal Finance Minister, cut into the system Fritsche and replaced BND boss Schindler by a man from the Ministry of Finance, Bruno Kahl, It fits that Fritsches successor is also to come from there. Johannes Geismann, State Secretary of the Ministry of Finance, is in talks as the new Chief Coordinator of the Federal Intelligence Service.

BND boss Ernst Uhrlau: “September 11 is not repeatable” – Politics

BND Uhrlau

Seven years after the attacks of September 11, 2001, Taliban and Al Qaeda appear invincible despite many losses. Is the fight against Islamist terror being lost?

display

display

The fight is not lost, but it takes longer than many expected or expected after 9/11. Islamist terror remains the key challenge for security agencies over the next 10 to 20 years. The assumption that the worst has been overcome. But the international community has badly affected Al Qaeda. Sunni fighters against Al Qaeda. The organization no longer has the strength it had before the invasion of Afghanistan in the fall of 2001. And in Iraq, Sunni fighters against Al Qaeda. The activities in Saudi Arabia and Yemen are thus well contained.

In Afghanistan, the attacks of the Taliban on the Bundeswehr. How strong is the danger for the soldiers?

The area of ​​responsibility of the Bundeswehr includes only two percent of all security-related incidents in Afghanistan. It is in the Kunduz district of Kunduz province, where a German reconstruction team is located, that are registered in the northern provinces. This is why we have ethnic reasons, because in Kunduz the Pashtuns are strong. And among the Taliban, the Pashtuns dominate. In addition, the Bundestag wants to decide on the continuation of the Bundeswehr mission. The Taliban wants to make peace of mind.

Can Al Qaeda continue to be attacked on the 11th of September?

I do not see Al Qaeda being able to do that. September 11 is not repeatable. The situation has changed fundamentally since 2001. Previously Al Qaeda in Afghanistan was able to professionalize under the protection of the Taliban. Al Qaeda was able to move freely in Afghanistan and run training camps. It’s over. Therefore, Al Qaeda is no longer able to prepare and perpetuate comparatively complex attacks such as those of September 11th undisturbed. Due to the many access successes of the internationally cooperating security authorities, the Al Qaeda structure is constantly under pressure. And in Western Europe in particular, it is harder for terrorists to get beyond the planning of an attack in the face of successful mugging.

Then the worst would be over …

No. Explosive bomb attacks with enormous impact are still to be expected. In many countries, the so-called homegrown terrorists are trying, often radicalized over the Internet, on their own to plan attacks. More dangerous than these amateurs, who often fail due to technical mistakes, however, are Islamists who train in the Pakistani-Afghan border area to become assassins. As you know, there are also several Germans there. In addition, in Islamic countries, leaders of militant groups join Al Qaeda again and again. An example of concern to us is the alliance of North African terrorists called Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb. The leading Algerian terrorists are now carrying out several coordinated suicide bombings, which previously did not belong to the “modus operandi”. The Algerian authorities were taken by surprise, despite their experiences from the civil war with the Islamists in the 1990s.

How could the almost defeated Algerian terrorists regain their strength?

After the amnesties of the Algerian state for imprisoned fighters of the civil war many have moved back to jihad. The North African Al Qaeda branch has also managed to set up training camps in Mauritania and to establish Mali’s refuge in the north. The alliance is even joined by Islamists from northern Nigeria. The danger also radiates to southern and western Europe. The North African Al Qaeda claims the old “al Andalus”, the Iberian peninsula once ruled by Islamic princes. In European countries with larger North African minorities, from Spain to France to Belgium, there is a growing danger that “Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb” is recruiting assassins.

In the Pakistani-Afghan border area, the Taliban and Al Qaeda have a safe hideaway. Can Osama bin Laden and his deputy Aiman ​​al Sawahiri, who live there under the protection of Pashtuns, again plan attacks?

Bin Laden and Sawahiri ideologically inspire jihadists worldwide. But operationally, they can not intervene. The Al Qaeda branches in Iraq and North Africa are independent. Bin Laden and Sawahiri compensate for their weakness with the video and audio messages distributed over the Internet. Above all, Sawahiri, who speaks more often to speak, has come down to a permanent commentator.

Nevertheless, it remains humiliating, especially for the US, not to be able to grasp the central backers of 9/11. Is it to be expected that the Pakistani security forces will act harder against Al Qaeda and the Taliban after the departure of the often hesitant President Pervez Musharraf?

Even if Musharraf’s successor, Asif Ali Zardari, became more involved, he too would be denied cooperation in the Pakistani tribal areas. It is part of the Pashtun code of honor not to betray a protected guest. Certainly not the unbelieving Americans, even if they offer $ 50 million.

The reputation of the BND was damaged after affairs such as listening to journalists. Have you been overwhelmed with operations such as helping to expose tax evasion to Liechtenstein or mediating in exchange between Israel and Hezbollah?

During the time in which we were publicly criticized, we kept our efficiency and worked successfully. If this is publicly perceived, I am pleased.

What did the BND know when the crisis between Georgia and Russia escalated?

In a short time, through which the Federal Government felt well informed about the events in the South Caucasus. We are very happy about this recognition.

In autumn, the Bundestag BND Investigative Committee wanted to look into the role of BND agents in Baghdad during the Iraq War. What are you expecting?

Let me say it casually: I expect “the same procedure as every year”. For example, the scandal of action has long been set out in the secret government report on the allegations. The secrecy rules often prevent us from refuting allegations by exposing the true facts to the public.

The BND was nothing to blame for its actions in Iraq?

I assure you: The BND has nothing to blame! He has strictly adhered to the specifications. I am convinced that the Committee of Inquiry wants to come to this conclusion.

The interview was conducted by Frank Jansen and Hans Monath.

Reinhard Gehlen
 

mikenova shared this story .

In the spring of 2011, the “Independent Commission of Historians for the History of the Federal Intelligence Service 1945-1968 (UHK)” launched. She received free access to the files of the BND and the Federal Chancellery as superior authority. Intensive research already published in 2016. The Gehlen biography is the temporary climax.

It is unusual for an intelligence service to open its archives, when veiling determines the ethic of service. In the case of the BND Ernst Uhrlau, President from 2005 to 2011, provided the research contract to clarify the entanglements of the staff in the National Socialism. This has been a trend since the Foreign Office and the Ministries of Justice, Finance and Labor have been screened for their past. It was known that unusually many leaders from the Third Reich gathered in the BND. Even the predecessor institution, the “Organization Gehlen”, appeared in 1955 to a foreign observer as a “ghostly Nazi shop in Pullach”. The BND, founded in 1956, shielded from the public until the end of the sixties, employed SS personnel and Gestapo officials on a large scale in addition to numerous Wehrmacht officers. The history of the Federal Intelligence Service casts light on the appearance of the young Federal Republic, where old and new, friend and enemy in the picture puzzle of the occupation regime were still hardly distinguishable. The reconstruction of the country and the rebuilding of the western alliance flow together here.

Von Beginn an war der Dienst an die amerikanische Vormacht gebunden. Die „Organisation Gehlen“ unterstand zunächst der US-Army, seit 1949 wurde sie von der CIA kontrolliert. Nach Gründung des BND blieb die Kontrolle erhalten – weniger auffällig, aber nicht weniger effizient. Die Amerikaner wussten, wer alles dort tätig war, und sie sahen, dass die nachrichtendienstliche Leistung nicht selten zu wünschen übrigließ.

Rolf-Dieter Müller hat sich der Herausforderung gestellt, die Biographie des Gründungspräsidenten zu erforschen. Er gehört zur Leitungsgruppe der UHK und ist als Honorarprofessor und wissenschaftlicher Direktor des militärhistorischen Zentrums der Bundeswehr bestens ausgewiesen, Gehlens Lebensgeschichte zu durchleuchten. Es ist die Geschichte eines Soldaten, der sich von seiner Prägung im Oberkommando des Heeres nie hat lösen können oder wollen.

1902 geboren, kam Gehlen 1937 in den Generalstab, nahm an der Planung des Angriffs auf die Sowjetunion teil und wurde 1942 Leiter der Abteilung „Fremde Heere Ost“ (FHO), die für die Feindaufklärung zuständig war. Müller zeichnet ihn als blasse Figur, sehr intelligent, in höchstem Maße anpassungsfähig, ein Schleicher, aber zugleich ein Mann von innerer Unabhängigkeit. Gehlen wusste von den Verbrechen im Vernichtungskrieg, gab sich aber immer von der Ehrenhaftigkeit der Wehrmacht überzeugt. Er war kein Antisemit, nahm aber nirgendwo Partei für die Juden. Die Attentatspläne kannte er, blieb aber auf Distanz. Die Feindaufklärung von FHO war nicht sehr effizient, konnte es mit ihren technischen und personellen Möglichkeiten wohl auch nicht sein. Die Leistungsfähigkeit der Roten Armee, insbesondere die Mengen an Nachschub für die Panzerwaffe, wurde immer unterschätzt. Die Prognosen vor der Schlacht von Stalingrad blieben unzureichend. Als Gehlen erkannte, dass der Krieg verloren war, achtete er darauf, die wichtigsten Unterlagen von FHO über die UdSSR bei sich zu behalten. 1945 ließ er sie in 50 Stahlkisten nach Bayern schaffen und vergraben. So rasch wie möglich suchte er Kontakt zu den Amerikanern und empfahl sich ihnen als vermeintlich bester Kenner der UdSSR. Es habe wohl kaum jemand anderen gegeben, urteilt Müller, der das Problem der „Anschlussverwendung“ so konsequent ins Auge gefasst hat wie Gehlen. Er sah, dass die Amerikaner nach der sowjetischen Besetzung Ost- und Mitteldeutschlands mit Stalin in Konflikt geraten und Informationen über die Rote Armee benötigen würden. Mit dem Material seiner 50 Kisten konnte er beweisen, dass er allein die Informationen hatte, die die US-Army jetzt brauchte.

– BND boss Ernst Uhrlau – A silence goes
 

mikenova shared this story .

The mystery that surrounds Ernst Uhrlau, 64, has something to do with the fact that he looks like he’s always looked that way. But unlike Bert Brecht’s Keuner, the president of the Federal Intelligence Service (BND), who would not say anything for many seconds, would not have blanched him with the words: “They are not changed. “Brecht’s” Mr. K. “says after all quite worried:” Oh! ” Watchlau, “Who is to say little with real passion, would probably not even let this elitist elicit, but after a while talk about the fact that the head of a news service is” not a static matter “. That would then suffice as a description of his condition. Sometimes it seems like he ‘before he lets out. A true secretist can only deliver the expected in homoeopathic doses, and silence can be a clever, encrypted message to an intellectual search as the opera and literary lover Uhrlau. No other German has worked for a long time in various security apparatuses as the Hanseatic with the unusual title in these circles of a graduate political scientist. As a rule, sociologists or political scientists are extremely suspicious of security. However, a social democrat from the old school is also Uhrlau, which mollifies the distrust in these circles. So he is loyal, loyal and unusually reliable. For some Hamburg SPD Interior Senators he worked as a personal speaker and office manager,Senator Alfons Pawelczyk, who belongs to the circle of friends of Helmut Schmidt. Under the legendary Christian Lochte was appointed Deputy Head of the Hamburg State Office for the Protection of the Constitution. He still talks well about the deceased 20 years ago Querkopf Lochte. Not everybody does that. After the fall Uhrlau helped in Potsdam with the establishment of the protection of the constitution; He then became head of department at Kiel and police chief in Hamburg, until Gerhard Schröder in 1998 brought him to the chancellery as an intelligence coordinator in Berlin. A man just in case.As head of the Chancellor’s office, Uhrlau successfully and silently orchestrated humanitarian actions between the Lebanese Hezbollah and the Israelis. BND boss at the non-party August Hanning, which is pretty conservative. Christian Democrat Angela Merkel became the President of the BND in December 2005, and this choice astounded many. Social Democrats BND leaders – because of the risk distribution. Because this secret service can be dangerous for any government, and it helps if the Social Democrats are on board.This office is located in Pullach near Munich, Germany. There are enemies on the outside, and there are even more enemies inside the apparatus. Scattering rumors and spreading denunciations of all kinds – that has always been part of the secret service’s craft. BND founder Reinhard Gehlen, former General of the Wehrmacht and head of the “Foreign Army East”, was a cunning master in these disciplines. The relationship between the political class and the intelligence service is disturbed for a long time.Chancellors Adenauer, Erhard, Kiesinger, Brandt, Schmidt and Kohl did not trust him. The Neue Zürcher Zeitung made more sense than reading the reports from Pullach. After the end of the Cold War, the BND suffered an “identity crisis,” says Uhrlau. The “Soviet Union, Eastern Bloc and GDR” had “dropped away”. Far away from the seat of government, the service lapsed without a clear mandate and without social recognition. Only the Social Democrat Gerhard Schroeder and his chancellery chief Frank-Walter Steinmeier helped to integrate the authority in the Polit Society of Berlin. This was not just a way to differentiate from the previous government.The new tasks of the service search as inquiries in connection with foreign operations of the Bundeswehr and the fight against Islamist terror left little room for the old prejudice of the rulers. Ever since 1998, the Berlin government has been bolstering its policy with findings from foreign service. Political official Uhrlau has contributed a great deal to his new post of co-ordinator and president. Against fierce resistance in the service, he abolished hierarchical levels, lifted the strict separation between procurers and evaluators on and enforced that historians may work the history of the BND.Uhrlau survived numerous scandals; the Chancellor once again is reprimanded him: he said he was in a hurry, but he said he did not have much of a problem.

High-ranking domestic and foreign intelligence officials in Germany tend to be attorneys. But Ernst Uhrlau, the head of Germany’s Foreign Intelligence Service (BND), is a political scientist who has a long history in German law enforcement. According to media reports, Uhrlau last week bounced around the Middle East like a ping-pong ball to mediate efforts among Israeli, Egyptian, and Syrian diplomats over the release of captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit. Uhrlau took the reins of the BND in 2005. He has mediated some of the most dramatic prisoner swaps to have taken place between Israel and Hizbullah. Uhrlau assigned one of his top agents – whose real name is not known but he is referred to as Gerhard Konrad – last year to mediate the exchange of IDF reservists Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser, who were murdered by Hizbullah in 2006, for convicted murderer Samir Kuntar as well as Hizbullah fighters. The swap went through, but raised criticisms of Israel’s willingness to grant deep concessions to Hizbullah. In 2004, Uhrlau was the principal mediator during the release of over 400 Arab prisoners, including the German terrorist Steven Smyrek, in exchange for the corpses of three IDF soldiers and the release of Israeli businessman Elhanan Tannenbaum. Uhrlau, 62, began his career as academic at the Hamburg police school in 1974. The then Hamburg Social Democratic Party (SPD) Interior Senator Werner Staak appointed fellow SPD member Uhrlau his chief of staff in 1975. In 1981, Uhrlau transferred to the domestic intelligence agency in Hamburg and took over as vice president of the agency. Ten years later Uhrlau would become head of the agency. After serving in that post for five years, he was appointed Hamburg police president in 1996. The move to a federal level position and his entry into foreign intelligence work crystallized in 1998. He relocated to Berlin and took over a top-level function within the BND. He served in the Federal Chancellery, where he worked as an intermediary between the BND and the federal government. His efforts as skilled mediator and negotiator are an outgrowth of his coordination work within the sprawling and complex federal government. In 2008, he took a pounding from the German media and some politicians over his agency’s monitoring of e-mail correspondence between Afghan Trade and Industry Minister Amin Farhang and German journalist Susanne Koelbl. Uhrlau issued a formal apology to Koelbl for his agency’s surveillance of her activity.

Intelligence Agency’s Murky Past: The Nazi Criminals Who Became German Spooks

They called Johannes Clemens the “Tiger of Como.” When an SS captain bore a nickname like that, it rarely meant anything good. Clemens belonged to a squad that shot 335 civilians in the Ardeatine Caves near Rome in 1944, one of the worst massacres on Italian soil during World War II.

Former chief inspector Georg Wilimzig also had blood on his hands. His 300-member squad, known as IV/2, murdered thousands of men, women and children following the German invasion of Poland in 1939.

After 1945, Clemens and Wilimzig both found themselves working for the same employer — the Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND), Germany’s foreign intelligence agency.

It’s no secret that intelligence agencies don’t like to disclose too much information about their own histories. There is even less transparency when that history involves mass murderers among the ranks. For this reason, it is all the more remarkable that the current BND head, Ernst Uhrlau, has been pushing for years to have more light cast on the early years of his organization, as part of Germany’s ongoing efforts to come to terms with its Nazi past. Uhrlau, a member of the center-left Social Democratic Party (SPD), has been trying since 2006 to move the issue forward.

Blocked by the Chancellery

Still, the BND boss doesn’t have free reign. His organization answers to the Chancellery and, until last year, Angela Merkel’s staff blocked all his attempts. Since then, though, the government in Berlin has taken a somewhat more relaxed position toward the BND’s history — after all, it doesn’t look good if the German Foreign Ministry and Finance Ministry allow research into their Nazi past, but the BND refuses.

As a result, the intelligence agency will sign contracts with a historical commission during the next few days. Historians Jost Dülffer, Klaus-Dietmar Henke, Wolfgang Krieger and Rolf-Dieter Müller will look into the BND’s early years, as well as the history of its predecessor, known as the Gehlen Organization, or Org.

It’s already apparent that these investigations will not only reflect poorly on the BND, but will also raise uncomfortable questions for the conservative Christian Democratic Union (CDU), its Bavarian sister party the Christian Social Union (CSU) and its coalition partner, the business-friendly Free Democratic Party (FDP). The recruitment policies adopted by the Org and subsequently the BND, which was founded in 1956, were hardly a secret even in the 1950s. During that period, Chancellor Konrad Adenauer headed a coalition made up predominantly of the CDU, CSU and FDP.

The British press at the time openly mocked the “Gestapo boys” working at the BND’s headquarters in Pullach, near Munich. The then-opposition leader and SPD head Kurt Schumacher is known to have raised the subject with Adenauer, who was also the head of the CDU. Schumacher described the Gehlen Organization as “riddled” with former members of the murderous Sicherheitsdienst (SD), the SS’s intelligence agency, claiming they were “deliberately placed in low-ranking positions, to disguise them for the time being.”

‘An Excellent Impression’

CIA documents turned up by the BND’s historical department show that the Bundestag, Germany’s parliament, was also informed about the matter. According to these documents, Reinhard Gehlen, head of the Org and later president of the BND, told the Bundestag’s Committee on European Defense on Dec. 11, 1953, that around 40 of his employees came from the SS and SD.

Although judges at the Nuremberg Trials had described both organizations as “criminal,” members of the Bundestag committee told the press after the session, speaking on condition of anonymity, that the general had “made an excellent impression.”

In assembling his organization, Gehlen initially avoided taking people who had been loyal to SS commander Heinrich Himmler, preferring to take officers instead. Until 1945, Gehlen, who grew up in Silesia, had headed a division of the general staff that prepared analyses about the Red Army. Shortly before the end of the war, he issued an order to film and then bury important documents. American interrogators were thrilled when Gehlen later handed over these records.

The Cold War was looming, and Gehlen, who knew how to sell himself, received an assignment in 1946. He and his old comrades were asked to collect information on the Soviet armed forces once again — but this time for the US Army.

Obscuring the Past: Intelligence Agency Destroyed Files on Former SS Members
 

mikenova shared this story from SPIEGEL ONLINE – Schlagzeilen.

Preparations have already been made for Ernst Uhrlau’s retirement party next Wednesday when he steps down from his post as the head of the Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND), Germany’s foreign intelligence agency, on his 65th birthday. The office of the chancellor has selected a posh location in Berlin for his farewell party and Angela Merkel herself is expected to attend. Uhrlau, a member of the center-left Social Democratic Party (SPD), will be turning over his post to Gerhard Schindler, a member of the business-friendly Free Democratic Party.

At events like this, the successes of the person retiring are usually celebrated. In Uhrlau’s case, topping the list are his efforts to review the problematic history of the BND’s creation after World War II. It has long been known that around 10 percent of the employees at the BND and its predecessor organization once served under SS chief Heinrich Himmler in Nazi Germany. In 2011, Uhrlau appointed an independent commission of historians to research the agency’s Nazi roots.

Now, only one week before Uhrlau’s retirement, the commission has uncovered what is a true historical scandal. The researchers have found that the BND destroyed the personnel files of around 250 BND officials in 2007. The agency has confirmed that this happened.

The commission claims that the destroyed documents include papers on people who were “in significant intelligence positions in the SS, the SD (the intelligence agency of the SS and the Nazi Party) or the Gestapo.” They added that some of the individuals had even been investigated after 1945 for possible war crimes. Historian Klaus-Dietmar Henke, spokesman for the commission, told SPIEGEL ONLINE he was “somewhat stunned” by the occurrence.

Did Agency Employees Seek to Sabotage Investigation?

The incident inevitably raises suspicions that agency employees have deliberately tried to obstruct Uhrlau’s efforts to investigate the organization’s history. The historical commission had not yet been appointed at the time of the documents’ destruction, but Uhrlau had already announced that he planned to look into his agency’s Nazi past.

It is no secret that some people within the BND are unhappy about Uhrlau’s project. Some employees are fundamentally opposed to the agency shedding light on its own past. Others are worried about the reputations of their own families — for many years, the BND deliberately recruited new staff from among the relatives of existing BND employees.

Within the BND, a working group headed by Bodo Hechelhammer is responsible for cooperation with the historical commission. The group is currently trying to shed light on the circumstances surrounding the destruction of the documents. Hechelhammer told SPIEGEL ONLINE that he regretted the loss of the documents.

There have already been several curious incidents involving the BND archives in the past. SPIEGEL recently requested access to BND documents relating to the former SS Captain Alois Brunner, who was once a close associate of Adolf Eichmann, the chief logistics organizer of the Holocaust. The agency informed SPIEGEL that the 581-page files on Brunner had been disposed of in the 1990s. That incident also appears to have been carried out behind the backs of the BND leadership.

The historical commission is now demanding that the BND consult it before any more “potentially valuable historical records” are destroyed. The historians are also insisting that the 2007 incident be thoroughly investigated. Commission spokesman Henke says the agency’s reaction will be “a test of how seriously the BND is really taking the investigation into its past.”

10:48 CET+01:00

Ernst Uhrlau, former head of Germany’s foreign intelligence agency the BND, has been on the payroll of Germany’s biggest bank since the start of February, just two months after his retirement.

A spokesman for the bank on Sunday confirmed a report in Der Spiegel news magazine that the former intelligence chief is now working as a freelance “global risk analyst” at the bank, and that this new job had been cleared by the Ronald Pofalla, chief of staff at the German chancellery.

The 65-year-old Uhrlau retired at the end of last year, when he reached the age limit for his office at the BND. He spent six years as president of the overseas intelligence agency and was also secret service coordinator for the German government.

One of Uhrlau’s more controversial acts in office was to buy the personal data of suspected tax evaders from people who had stolen the information from foreign banks. One of the high-profile victims of the initiative was Klaus Zumwinkel, former head of Germany’s postal service Deutsche Post.

Zumwinkel was fined €1 million and handed a two year suspended sentence in 2009.

Uhrlau is not the first high-ranking government insider who has moved to the Deutsche Bank. Former deputy finance minister Caio Koch-Weser became vice-chairman of the Deutsche Bank Group in 2006.
