Greek Investigator’s Report Finds Evidence of Plot Against Former PM’s Life, ‘Silver Drachma’ Plan



aithousa-dikastiriou-dikastirioEvidence pointing to international espionage, a plot to murder former Greek Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis and a 2012 plan for Greece’s exit from the euro code-named the “Silver Drachma” are just some of the sensational findings unveiled in a report by Greek Anti-Corruption Investigator Dimitris Foukas, released on Friday and sent to the Justices’ Council for consideration.

The report outlines the findings of three converging judicial investigations spanning several years, initiated after the notorious phone-tapping scandal in 2005 and revelations that the mobile phones of then Prime Minister Karamanlis and dozens of other prominent Greeks were under surveillance.

This investigation later merged with that of the “Pythias Plan'” – for the neutralization and even murder of Karamanlis – and allegations that Greek National Intelligence Service officers and former Minister Michalis Karchimakis had leaked classified state secrets and documents.

Foukas cited evidence – including Wikileaks reports – supporting the existence of the Pythias Plan, which he said was designed to exert pressure on the Greek government to change its policy in crucial sectors, such as energy, arms procurements and public sector procurements. According to the report, the rapprochement between Greece and Russia provoked action by the United States to avert agreements for Russian pipelines, leading to the gradual abandonment of the plans by Athens and its commitment to the Trans-Adriatic Pipeline (TAP), as well as the cancellation of plans to acquire Russian military equipment.

The Investigator referred to evidence that a close aide of former Prime Minister George Papandreou held talks with Mexican businessman Julio Salinas Price in 2012 on Greece’s exit from the Eurozone and the possible introduction of a Greek national currency, partly covered by silver, which would have cost Greece 70 billion euros.

Lastly, also citing Wikileaks reports, the Investigator referred to evidence that Greek National Intelligence Service officers with access to secret information had leaked it to individuals without the necessary clearance, specifically to Karchimakis, who has denied the charges.

    The fact that someone sounding very like a Russian troll should be quoting a report by Putin’s FSB in support of this story does little to lend it credibility. Quite the opposite, in fact. One doesn’t need to put one’s trust in the CIA to detect the machinations of Putin here.
    One can well understand that many Greeks may be feeling more than a little disillusioned with the EU. But I hope this does not persuade them to turn instead to the tender embraces of the corrupt and ruthless tyrant Vladimir Putin, as “MSMlies” clearly wishes.

    The US political establishment and intelligence agencies lead the world in murder and corruption. The CIA and mossad work hand in glove, with consequences such as the US invasion of Iraq based on a “weapons of mass destruction” lie leaving millions of Iraqi civilians dead and the middle east in flames!

    ▪ US National Security Agency (NSA) eavesdropped on the calls of 35 world leaders including Chancellor Angela Merkel’s mobile phone!

    ▪ The NSA spied on 70.3 million French phone calls in 30 days and hacked Mexican president Felipe Calderon’s email account.

    ▪ The US government, with assistance from major telecommunications carriers including AT&T, has engaged in massive, illegal dragnet surveillance of the domestic communications and communications records of millions of ordinary Americans since at least 2001.

    “We were not foolish enough to try to make a currency coverage of gold of which we had none, but for every mark that was issued we required the equivalent of a mark’s worth of work done or goods produced. . . .we laugh at the time our national financiers held the view that the value of a currency is regulated by the gold and securities lying in the vaults of a state bank.” -Adolf Hitler, 1937 (CC Veith, Citadels of Chaos, Meador, 1949.)

    “And it proved sound. It worked. In less than ten years Germany became easily the most powerful state in Europe. It worked so magically and magnificently that it sounded the death knell of the entire (Zionist) Jewish money system. World (J)ewry knew that they had to destroy Hitler’s system, by whatever means might prove necessary, or their own [system of usury] would necessarily die. And if it died, with it must die their dream and their hope of making themselves masters of the world. The primary issue over which World War II was fought was to determine which money system was to survive. At bottom it was not a war between Germany and the so-called allies. Primarily it was war to the death between Germany and the International Money Power.” –William Gayley Simpson, ‘Which Way Western Man’ (p.642)

    After the weimar collapse of the mark Germany boomed albeit from a low level and based on government funded infrastructure, which although more productive than say modern QE, would not have been feasible in the longer run.
    During the war years, managed their economy to a large extent by artificially fixing their currency vs the occupied nations and thus draining their wealth.

    A Silver Drachma would have been a dagger in the heart of all the worlds vampire squids.
    One has to wonder though how much silver Greek government actually has. And how much they could buy for Drachmas. They really should have bought over several years for Euros. Trying to come up with a precious metals backed currency now in the eleventh hour isn’t going to work.
    Crossing fingers Hugo Salinas Price (not Julio as article suggests) is more successful in Mexico with the Silver Peso. God speed.
