Brabant Massacres.jpg
1985 saw the last of the Brabant Massacres, which had killed supermarket goers in a spate of attacks from 1982. Never completely solved, they appear to have been NATO-sponsored murders as part of a strategy of tension.
In September 1985 the Al-Yamamah arms deal was signed by the UK Defence Secretary Michael Heseltine, resulting in billions of dollars in commissions and other fees for those involved.

1985 was to see the last of the Operation Gladio/A false flag attacks (although they were not admitted as false flags at the time). The exact reasons for winding down this particular strategy of tension remain unclear.

The last attack of these massacres of Belgian supermarket goers occurred in 1985. They have never been completely solved, though Alan Francovich presented compelling circumstantial evidence in his film about Operation Gladio that the killers were directed by Gladio operatives.

Iran Contra

Full article: “Iran-Contra”

Iran-Contra was a large covert operation which may have started from negotiations about the 1980 October Surprise. Beginning in 1985, some of The Enterprise's deals began to be exposed, which would pick up dramatically the next year when Eugene Hasenfus' plane was shot down. Mark Gorton suggests that Iran-Contra may have been planned as a limited hangout operation to unseat Ronald Reagan. The event was quickly (and misleadingly) dubbed "Iran-contra", and the CIA drug trafficking aspect was sidelined in the official narrative.

Al-Yamamah arms deal

Al yamamah.jpg

The Al-Yamamah arms deal was a multi-billion dollar arms deal between BAE Systems and the government of Saudi Arabia, possibly brokered at Le Cercle. After John Cuckney had laid the groundwork[1], the UK Defence Secretary Michael Heseltine signed off on the deal in September 1985. Over the next 20 years, the Saudi Ambassador to the United States was to earn over $1 billion in commissions. Various other agents got sizable commissions, including Mark Thatcher who has been variously estimated as earning between £12-$18 million from the deal.[2] The UK Public Accounts Committee were not allowed to see the paperwork. Over 20 years later, an investigation by the Serious Fraud Office is terminated after Tony Blair personally intervened - and by 2013 the SFO were claiming to have "lost the tapes".[3]

Manuel Noriega“In 1992, Noriega was tried and convicted on eight drug trafficking and conspiracy counts in federal court in Miami. His 40-year sentence was reduced by 10 years after a former CIA station chief and a former U.S. ambassador spoke on his behalf.

By that time, I had already begun investigating the story. I found more than reasonable doubt about his guilt. The government prosecuted the case with the testimony of 26 convicted drug traffickers who received plea bargains that allowed them to get out of prison and, in some cases, keep their drug profits. One of them was Carlos Lehder, a neo-Nazi from Colombia, then the most important trafficker ever captured by the United States. He had never met Noriega—and neither had the other dealers who testified against him. U.S. District Judge William Hoeveler, who tried the case, invited me to his home after Noriega's conviction and sentencing for a series of unusual talks in which he expressed concern about how the trial and verdict would be judged. "I hope, in the end, we'll be able to say that justice was served," he said. He and other U.S. officials took solace in the fact that even if the drug conviction was questionable, Noriega was clearly a murderer.

But the sources I interviewed raised serious questions about one charge against him. In 1993, Noriega was convicted in absentia in Panama of conspiracy in the 1985 murder of Hugo Spadafora, a political protégé turned opponent. A key piece of evidence was that the National Security Agency had intercepted a remote telephone communication in which Noriega allegedly ordered the killing: "What do you do with a rabid dog?... You cut off its head."

Multiple U.S. sources told me the intercept did not exist. They said the NSA did not have the capability at that time to capture communications between Noriega—who was in France when Spadafora was killed—and his minions in the Panamanian jungle. I determined that the charges had been made up in part by a Panamanian newspaper columnist and author, Guillermo Sánchez Borbón. He admitted to me he could cite no source for reporting the killing of Spadafora in a book, In the Time of the Tyrants, that he co-wrote with an American expatriate, Richard Koster. "It is a political book, not a historical book," Sanchez Borbón said. "It has its inexactitudes."”
