The Underworld Bank scandal is oozing out all over.
Conceived in Karachi, financed in Abu Dhabi, the conspiracy reached into the world's Western capitals and perhaps the U.N. under the protection of high-paid lobbyists and naive spooks. The B.C.C.I. scandal involves the laundering of drug money, the illicit financing of terrorism and of arms to Iraq, the easy purchase of respectability and the corruption of the world banking system.
For more than a decade, the biggest banking swindle in history worked beautifully. Between $5 billion and $15 billion was bilked from governments and individual depositors to be put to the most evil of purposes -- while lawmen and regulators slept.
Now the fight among investigators is coming out into the open. Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau, who gave impetus to long-contained probes, told a Senate subcommittee headed by Senator John Kerry that he is getting no cooperation from the Thornburgh Justice Department.
Justice's Criminal Division chief, Robert Mueller, tells me he will have a hatchet-burying session with the independent-minded D.A. next week, and vehemently denies having told British intelligence to stop cooperating with the Manhattan grand jury.
And what about the revelation last week by the New York Times reporter Jeff Gerth that the C.I.A. was using B.C.C.I. for payoffs abroad, which may have been used by the swindlers as a cover? "At no time have we received a request from the intelligence community," insists Mr. Mueller, "to alter or suspend or in any way change the course of our investigation."

Found it. I believe this is the case that got mueller into the big game. Or showed he was already there and willing to play.
He lived in the ME back then...and worked for many sheiks and powerful people.
That was many, many years ago....
I would still like to know what the Tarp was all about....no one ever tracked that one down...
James Baker and the Bush's also made money from this mess.
The Saudi's financed the Muslim Bomb, Pakistan, through this outfit.
So Mueller was already compromised way back then. And Jimmy Carter before that even before the Clintons became the gangsters in the White House.
Lots of BCCI info at www.Alamo-Girl.com.
Clark Clifford, Robert Altman, Kissinger Associates, etc.
As joe degenova says: dirty cop
Hope trump is circumspect on his meeting with muellie
Muellers history of corruption had bugged me.
Is this the one that John McCain was involved in?
Dont know of his involvement here, McCain was notably involved in a savings and loan scandal, as I recall.
They just pay fines as a cost of doing business. HSBC and USB were just fined for derivatives price fixing. Too Big To Jail.
Jimmy Carter used a BCCI plane to fly about the world. And his buddy, the former Mayor of Atlanta (name escapes me) was up to his ears in BCCI scandal in Central America, as was banker Altman (Linda Carter’s husband). As for the CIA using BCCI: The CIA used BCCI, a bank founded by a Pakistani, because it was the only international bank with branches in northern Pakistan where the CIA was operating during the Russo-Afghan war.
Wow - what a treasure trove of BCCI corruption and connections.
Alamo girl rocks!
