How Current is This? Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

EXCERPT is from the following Christopher Story article. 295 big US banks confirmed as criminal enterprises
[EDITOR'S INSERT: This is absurd. Under the standard double-mindedness, dialectical non-ethic that characterises the criminalist behaviour of elements of the US Government, law enforcement and the Drug Enforcement Administration battle valiantly against the proliferation of Mexican drug gangs, which now operate in every corner of the United States. Meanwhile, the drug offensive was organised and orchestrated by CIA operatives in Latin America in the 1970s and 1980s, aided by Israeli 'Black' intelligence headed by David Kimche (who died of brain cancer on 8th March 2010) and Michael Harari. Their involvement is proven by the Cutolo Affidavit dated 11th March 1980.

Money laundering pdf
A joint investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Drug
Enforcement Administration (DEA)into drug trafficking at the Southwest border revealed a multimillion dollar money laundering organization, utilizing multiple
companies, and numerous bank accounts, to launder narcotic proceeds.

This case study demonstrates methodologies used for laundering criminal proceeds.
In 2004, ICE agents in Brownsville, Texas, received information that Oscar Oropeza, along with his wife Tina, daughter Paulina and son Juan, were using various businesses they owned to launder proceeds derived from narcotic sales. The
Oropeza family owned substantial assets in both Brownsville and Harlingen,Texas, including a car wash, landscaping business, trucking company, a large house, and
numerous vehicles valued between $60,000–$120,000 each.

One of the first developments linking the Oropeza family to narcotics occurred in April 2004. Juan Hernandez and other defendants were arrested by local police in Harlingen, Texas, after they were linked to a narcotic smuggling operation utilizing
truck lines to ship marijuana out of the Rio Grande Valley, to Florida. As a result of this arrest, Hernandez received more than three years in a state penitentiary.

DEA agents in West Palm Beach, Florida, learned of Hernandez's arrest and asked ICE for additional information about his drug operation.

This information linked Milton Oquendo to the narcotic smuggling in Florida. DEA subsequently arrested and charged him in Florida for his role in the organization.

Hernandez and Oquendo were each sentenced to ten years as a result of this indictment. The money laundering activities being conducted by the Oropeza family were directly linked to Hernandez and Oquendo.

In July 2006, investigators caught a break in the case when Tina Oropeza was stopped and questioned by Harlingen police officers while riding on a north-bound
bus headed out of the city. Officer's discovered she was carrying approximately
$90,000 in cash, which they seized.

Subsequent financial records checks showed that the Oropeza family had more than 20 accounts with several banks. Personal bank accounts connected to the money
laundering activity were held by all four Oropeza's. Account statements
from these personal accounts reflected cash deposits continued A Study in Money Laundering The Oropeza Family and Drug Smuggling at the Southwest Border

Michael Harari wikipedia
Michael "Mike" Harari (born 1927) was an Israeli intelligence officer in the Mossad. Harari was involved in several notable operations, including the failed Lillehammer affair and the rescue of hostages at Entebbe.

Harari began his intelligence work facilitating illegal Jewish immigration to Israel after World War II. He then spent time in the army and Shin Bet before being recruited by the Mossad in the 1960s. During his time in the Mossad he ran agents in Europe, eventually advancing to the head of the Operations Branch. It was during this time that he helped build and lead teams in Operation Wrath of God, the Israeli response to the Munich Massacre in 1972. In what became known as the Lillehammer affair, Harari led a team into Norway where they believed Ali Hassan Salameh, the chief of Black September operations was living. After identifying and assassinating the target, it was revealed that they had killed an innocent waiter, Ahmed Bouchiki, who only resembled Salameh. While authorities arrested many of Harari's team, he escaped back to Israel. A Norwegian case against him was dismissed in January 1999 because of a lack of evidence.[1]

Despite this setback, Harari later scored two major successes for the Mossad. Before Operation Thunderbolt was launched in July, 1976, to free Israeli hostages at Entebbe International Airport, Harari supposedly took the disguise of an Italian businessman to enter and reconnoiter the airport. He also helped facilitate the use of Kenyan air bases to refuel Israeli planes returning from the rescue mission.[2] In January, 1979, Harari led a team that killed Ali Hassan Salameh in Beirut with a car bomb, the same man he had tried to assassinate in Lillehammer years earlier.

At some later point in time Harari became the Mossad station chief in Latin America based out of Israel. Although he is said to have retired after this service, it is unclear if all his Israeli intelligence connections were severed when he left for Panama, He returned to Israel just before or during the 1989 United States invasion of Panama, which deposed Noriega and installed the legitimate presidential victor Guillermo Endara. Harari later appeared on Israeli television and denied that he was ever a close advisor of Noriega, and that he had escaped by his own means. [3]

Harari was played by actor Moshe Ivgy in Steven Spielberg's 2005 film Munich,[4] which depicts a controversial account of Operation Wrath of God.

To Tell the Truth
David Kimche: Israel's Leading Spy and Would-Be Mossad Chief

By Leon T. Hadar
The name David Kimche became vaguely familiar to Americans who followed the Iran-Contra scandal, yet few now can recall exactly what role he played. It's just the way this shadowy Israeli intelligence official and spin control artist operates. Since he figures prominently in many of his government's more spectacular "dirty tricks," it was no surprise to hear from a US television team that returned from Tehran this summer that, "whenever we went to interview Islamic revolutionary government officials, David Kimche seemed to be just leaving their offices. "

This quiet but influential Israeli official's name first surfaced frequently in the world press in connection with the 1982 Israeli invasion of Lebanon, three years before the Iran-Contra revelations. Throughout the 1980 to 1988 administration of US President Ronald Reagan, Kimche was one of the leading figures in the efforts to cement the "strategic alliance" between Israel and the United States. Today, as a "private businessman, " he undoubtedly is still at the center of some Israeli covert activities abroad.

Lillehammer affair wikipedia
The undercover agents had been sent by Israel as part of Operation Wrath of God to assassinate Ali Hassan Salameh, the leader of the Black September Organization, a Palestinian militant group that carried out the 1972 Munich Massacre. They mistook Bouchiki for their target and shot him repeatedly as he walked back from a cinema to his apartment with his pregnant wife. Two members of the assassination team were arrested the next day as they re-used a getaway car to go to the airport. After their interrogation the whole cell was arrested. Incriminating documents and the keys to a network of safe houses were discovered.[1]

Of the nine agents who participated directly in the assassination (Michael Harari, Dan Ærbel, Ethel Marianne Gladnikoff, Abraham Gehmer, alias Leslie Orbaum, Sylvia Rafael, alias Patricia Lesley Roxburgh, Victor Zipstein alias Zwi Steinberg, Michael Dorf, Gustav Pistauer, Jean-Luc Sevenier, Jonathan Isaac Englesberg alias Jonathan Ingleby, "Tamara" alias "Tamar" alias "Marie", Rolf Baehr, Gerard Lafond, Raoul Cousin, Nora Heffner), six were captured by the Norwegian authorities and five were convicted of Bouchiki's murder. Harari as well as the two killers escaped and Dorf was acquitted. The five convicts were sentenced to prison terms ranging from two and a half to five years, but all were released within 22 months and deported to Israel.
