Three Days of the Condor – Ending





On April 13, 2000, retired Brig. General Earl Cocke, Jr lied + lied + lied throughout a deposition describing a money laundering scheme known as Project Hammer. Cocke described Project Hammer as a money laundering plan to “bring monies back to the United States from all types of activities, both legitimately and illegitimately”.

According to Cocke‘s deposition, “Hammer” has existed in one form or another since the forties and fifties and – most important to note – has re-invented itself several times over.

Project Hammer funds were used to pay for military operations in Sudan and the Sahara.

Persons involved in Project Hammer included:

  • Shelly Smith Rhoades – The name Cocke provided when asked for “the dominant person involved in running this project”
  • John Reed – Citibank’s lead on the project
  • Roelof van Rooyen – “had so many names that the only one that identifies him completely, he does not walk away from, is Roelof.” Roelof claimed to work for South African police, military, or intelligence. The attorney questioning Cocke suggested that Roelof may have been involved with the Pan-Islamic American Bank and Srur, and that Roelof and Stander “were acting as agents of U.S. arms dealers who were shipping arms to Angola and Mozambique.”
  • Barrie Wamboldt – A Canadian Citibank employee who drew a schematic of Project Hammer accounts.
  • Paul Green – A real estate lawyer in New York with “50 years practice” who was involved “from an early stage” in attempts by Project Hammer investors to get access to money owed them by Citibank
  • Paul Gray – a computer hacker retained by Project Hammer investors to break into Citibank’s computers

Cocke’s deposition was provided in the case of Steven A. Curtis, David Lee Maudlin, and David Wayne Oster v. Adriaan Barend Stander, Roelf Ignatius Johannes van Rooyen, Intercol Ltd., and Oceantec Group/Syndicate. The deposition was recorded by Thomas Melo.

TWB has uncovered that Project Hammer has become widely used for money laundering large scale counterfeit currencies into the legitimate money supply.

FRANK NUGAN, found dead January 27. 1980

On 27 January 1980, Nugan was found dead on an isolated dirt track near Bowenfels, New South Wales with a gunshot wound to the head, which the coroner concluded was self-inflicted.[1] The crime scene was found to be disturbed with many footprints around the body, which was noted at the time by police. Nugan had acquired a shooter’s license on 7 January and then a rifle the following day. The calling card of Nugan Hand’s legal counsel, William Colby, was found in Nugan’s pocket.[5] In the days preceding his death, Nugan had sought to arrange a move to Florida with his US-born wife and three young children, and appeared confident that he could leave his Australian legal troubles behind him.[5]

Continued speculation that Nugan had faked his own death, including a report from a businessman who said he saw and talked with Nugan while on a trip to the U.S., and was in hiding led authorities to exhume Nugan’s body in February 1981. Dental records and fingerprints were used to confirm that the body was Nugan’s.[6]

William Egan Colby, found dead April 27, 1996

On April 27, 1996, Colby set out from his weekend home in Rock Point, Maryland, on a solo canoe trip.[16] His canoe was found the following day on a sandbar in the Wicomico River, a tributary of the Potomac, about 0.25 miles (0.40 km) from his home.[17] On May 6, Colby’s body was found in a marshy riverbank lying face down not far from where his canoe was found.[16][18] After an autopsy, Maryland’s Chief Medical Examiner John E. Smialek ruled his death to be accidental.[18

GARY WEBB, found dead December 10, 2004

Webb is best known for his “Dark Alliance” series, which appeared in The Mercury News in 1996. The series examined the origins of the crack cocaine trade in Los Angeles and claimed that members of the anti-communist Contra rebels in Nicaragua had played a major role in creating the trade, using cocaine profits to finance their fight against the government in Nicaragua. It also stated that the Contras may have acted with the knowledge and protection of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). The series provoked outrage, particularly in the Los Angeles African-American community, and led to four major investigations of its charges
