IRAN-CONTRA: Several figures -- including Theodore Shackley, Thomas

Clines and Richard Armitage - later associated with the Iran Contra

scandal were involved in Project Phoenix, which was financed in part

with opium money. It has been alleged that the close relationship with

SE Asian drug dealers continued after the US withdrawal from Vietnam,

with Iran used as a conduit for drugs and money. It has also been

reported that, as a sequel to Project Phoenix, an off-the- books

assassination program was established in Iran.

AFTER THE VIETNAM WAR: At the end of 1975, Armitage became as a special

consultant to the Department of Defense, working out of Bangkok and

dealing with unrepatriated prisoners and the missing in action.

Armitage also started a mysterious business called the Far East Trading

Company. Meanwhile, from 1976 to 1979 in Iran, Richard Secord was

supervising the sale of US military aircraft and weapons to Middle

Eastern nations. During this same period, there are reports that

Shackley, Clines, Secord, and Armitage set up several curious

corporations and subsidiaries around the world including Lake

Resources, Stanford Technology Trading Group, Companie de Services

Fiduciaria, CSF Investments and Udall Research Corporation.
