Tales of the Illumi-Naughty



In Intelligence they eat their own. This is a tale of a broken PROMIS linked to BW and Iran/Contra. This germy story is linked to “The Octopus” (intelligence and black ops for profit) conspiracy and the PROMIS software scandal of the 1980s as described by eccentric scientific genius Michael James Roconosciuto, (pronounced Riconoshooto), weapons systems designer and computer software expert.

He’s been accused of being a publicity-seeking pathological liar and a disinformation agent, but the intervening years have proved him right more often than not. He has one foot in the drug underground and the other in hi tech intelligence. Still, even after he went to prison, he continued making uncanny predictions.

MJR was involved in a variety of sensitive intelligence projects besides PROMIS, from selling shoulder-fired missiles to Osama bin Laden during “Charlie Wilson’s War,” to hi-tech top-down computer programming operations, microwave transmissions, digital cash dispersal, cryptoanalytic attack, to germ warfare, and alleged drug dealing. He even predicted 9/11 by hijacking but was ignored. It wouldn’t be far off to say he operated like a gangster. That is to say, this wise-guy knows the score when it comes to both state-sponsored and organized transnational crime. If he wasn’t a Lord of War, he certainly knew some.

PROMIS was a people-tracking software system sold to intelligence organizations and government drug agencies worldwide. The global dispersion of PROMIS to 88 countries was part of a U.S. plot to spy on other spy agencies. Riconosciuto is one of the architects of the PROMIS backdoor. The original backdoor was a signal using a specialized chip that broadcast the contents of the existing database to monitoring vans or collection satellites using digital spread spectrum data compression whenever the software was run.

PROMIS was eventually sold to the Russians by infamous traitor Robert Hanssen, who worked for the FBI.  The Russians allegedly passed it on to bin Laden, allowing him to monitor U.S. efforts to track him down and to hide himself and his money, federal law enforcement officials said, according to the Washington Post. Hanssen helped allies like Germany and England install and use of their versions of the PROMIS program.

This author (Miller) interviewed MJR shortly before he went to prison. He told me the tangled story of the many tentacles of the metacontrol system, “The Octopus.” His story got weirder than The Matrix as he outlined his story in a futile gesture to protect himself from what he perceived correctly as immanent danger. His well-placed “partners” had turned on him.

So this computer Einstein for CIA had arrived in Southern Oregon “on the lamb” in a Winnebago with a gun turret and a phalanx of body guards. Seeing through the ruthlessness of his colleagues, “he decided to testify about massive corruption in the U.S. Justice Department and the intelligence agency. He agreed to provide his insider knowledge to the U.S. House Judiciary Committee investigating the Inslaw affair.


Roconosciuto subsequently told his story in print but the details and analysis remain the same. This is the dangerous story that got investigative journalist Danny Casolaro killed in 1991 (another “apparent suicide”), best summarized in The Final Circle, by Carol Marshall (1996), who used MJR’s secret files to connect the dots. This is the story that turned MJR’s handlers against him and “poisoned the well,” sending him to prison where he was purposefully denied adequate medical care.

Casolaro tried to link Inslaw/PROMIS to the October Surprise scandal, the Iran-Contra affair and the collapse of BCCI (Bank of Credit and Commerce International). It’s no surprise Casolaro dubbed former child prodigy “Magic Mike,” now CIA rogue, “Danger Man.

Shockingly, Riconosciuto claimed that he and Earl Brian had traveled to Iran in 1980 and paid $40 million to Iranian officials to persuade them NOT to release the hostages before the first presidential election won in 1980 by Ronald Reagan with Bush 41 as his V.P. He also claimed to be connected to satanic cults, small arms trafficking, the covert use of Indian reservations nationwide, bio-mass burning plants, "Trojan horses" installed in computers, the Nixon/Reagan/Bush mafia, money laundering through the national HUD agency, the CIA/mafia bust out of savings and loans, sexual slaves used to compromise power mongers, Vietnam drug money laundered to CIA banks, fuel explosives, [and] chemical and biological warfare weapons.

Journalist Casolaro came to Riconosciuto because MJR claimed that when he worked on the Wackenhut-Cabazon project, he was given a copy of the Inslaw software by Dr. Earl Brian for modification. Riconosciuto also swore that Peter Videnieks, a Justice Department official associated with the Inslaw contract, had visited the Wackenhut-Cabazon project with Earl Brian. Other sources acknowledge that Riconosciuto and Brian were indeed involved in a joint venture between the Cabazon Indians and the Wackenhut Corporation.

Earl Brian ran Hadron, a front company founded in the 80s for questionable activity including germ warfare. Nearly every hospital in the world buys their products. Hadron, with Dr. Earl Brian as director, also provided engineering and computer consulting services. Brian was convicted in the 1980s on fraud charges.

Both Hadron and Dr. Brian were linked with the theft of enhanced PROMIS software from its owner, the Inslaw Corporation. PROMIS was a highly sophisticated computer program capable of integrating a wide variety of databases, now reportedly mated with artificial intelligence. PROMIS was modified for intelligence with a back door that allows for surreptitious retrieval of stored data from adversaries.

Bio Rad made the most hazardous medical, biological and nuclear chemicals in the world. BioRad’s Earl Brian started InfoTech, then Hadron to protect the parent company from lawsuits. MJR claims they had the capacity to bioengineer DNA based, genetically targeted pathogens – ethnic bioweapons. In fact, he claimed to engineer them himself with gene-splicing.

Riconosciuto would make additional claims about Bio-Rad corporation, a medical supplier which had gradually taken over Hercules, California. They were also, Riconosciuto would say, covertly engaged in bio-warfare research—producing some of the deadliest toxins known to man. The focus of Bio-Rad's research was said to be bio-active elements that could be tailored to attack those with certain types of DNA. Weapons could thus be produced that were specifically designed to wipe out specific races or genetic classes of human beings. (Alternatively, particular DNA types could be immunized against a deadly biological agent; the agent could then be released, and everyone else would die.) (Grabbe)

Sound inplausible? Benjamin Fulford made the claim in 2007 that SARS is just such a genetically-selective bioweapon, designed to racially target Asians, specifically Chinese. Likewise, biologist Mae-Wan Ho finds a natural source for SARS implausible. She details the fingerprints of genetic engineering in its biological code which has very unusual features. The spike protein feature alone is enough to trigger serious autoimmune responses, and you can't vaccinate people against their own genes.

An Israeli doctor claims that, "In my 'heart of hearts' I believe that SARS is genetically engineered to target Chinese (Oriental) genetic materials. You may already know that Israel has been working on such a thing, specific to Arab genetic material. Knowing the military-industrial-medical cartel like I do, I would not be surprised if this isn't a 'test market' for something more sinister regarding other populations. What leads me to suspect that genetics are involved is that China is now trying to impose the death penalty on anyone who has contracted SARS. This lets me know that it is much more sinister than an ugly flu strain."

Another doctor, Dr. Robert Lee concludes, "I believe it is likely that SARS coronavirus will disproportionately infect those of Asian, African, and Hispanic extraction and less likely those of Northern European extraction." Meanwhile, the Chinese are prepared to terminate those who break quarantine.

AIDS, considered genetically-engineered by many, created a holocaust among gays. It became a genocidal factor throughout Africa. The agenda again is one of depopulation, the old rubric of culling the surplus population.

It is possible that when MJR was judged "mentally unstable" and fantasy-prone in the 1970s that the psychologists simply lacked the intelligence knowledge base to determine his veracity. He had already peeked behind the curtains. When hi tech emerges from the shadows, it often appears magical for a time. What shrink 20 years ago would have bought into cloaks of invisibility, but now we have stealth.

Airing Dirty Laundry

Hadron tried unsuccessfully to buy Inslaw and its PROMIS (Prosecutor's Management Information System) software in 1983. In 1982 the firm signed a three year contract for $10 million with the U.S. Department of Justice for a case-management computer program that enabled the U.S. attorneys to keep track of information on cases, witnesses and defendants, and to manage their caseloads more effectively. It could be used not only for cracking business, national or international computer systems, but also be modified to track money laundering, even CIA money laundering.

With Riconoscuito's credentials acclaimed by Congress and the Grand Jury, he further stated that he facilitated the laundering of CIA funds via his expertise in manipulating electronic data transmission equipment. This included the transfer of funds which were involved in the October Surprise payment to the Ayatollah Khomeini's regime in Iran. He said he was also responsible for the manner in which [the CIA] caused the interdiction of funds from the sale of Red Chinese gold and the manner in which large sums of CIA funds were secreted and knowledge of where those funds are located.

By 1985, Inslaw was forced into bankruptcy in a DoJ investigation. When Inslaw refused to sell to Hadron, DOJ tried to bankrupt and liquidate Inslaw forcing the rock bottom sale of its assets, including PROMIS, perhaps to Hadron. The software was a reward for Earl Brian's role in arranging the so-called 'October Surprise' gambit. After Earl Brian sold PROMIS around the world, he returned his interests to genetic research, biological technology.

Wackenhut, a “private FBI” with black budget connections, is also linked to the Inslaw scandal. MJR said, “The purpose of the PROMIS software modification that I made in 1983 and 1984 was to support a plan for the implementation of PROMIS in law enforcement and intelligence agencies worldwide. Earl W. Brian was spearheading the plan for this worldwide use of the PROMIS computer software.”

Michael Riconosciuto was director of research for the Wackenhut/Cabazon joint venture in the early '80s. In a March 1991 affidavit for the Inslaw case, Riconosciuto claimed that "in connection with [Riconosciuto's] work for Wackenhut," he modified the stolen Promis software for foreign sales. "Earl W. Brian made [the software program] available to me through Wackenhut after acquiring it from Peter Videnieks, who was then a Department of Justice contracting official with responsibility for the Promis software." Videnieks, a former Customs Service official under Commissioner Chasen, served in the Justice Department from 1981 through 1990.

Not Wacko, Just a Wacken-Spy

In his affidavit, Riconosciuto said Videnieks had threatened to retaliate against Riconosciuto if he cooperated with a House Judiciary Committee probe of the Inslaw case. Seven days after filing the affidavit (which was not, technically, part of the committee investigation), Riconosciuto was arrested on drug-selling charges.

One week after giving an affidavit to Inslaw regarding the PROMIS software in 1991, Riconosciuto was arrested on trumped-up drug charges. The Assistant U.S. Attorney prosecuting the case attempted to cover up Riconosciuto's intelligence background by claiming to the jury he was "delusional." A TV station came and pointed a camera out at the desert at Cabazon and said, "Riconosciuto says he modified the PROMIS software here." Of course Riconosciuto didn't modify the software out between the cacti and yucca. Sand isn't good for computers. He did the modifications in offices in nearby Indio, California. The AUSA told reporters Riconosciuto had been diagnosed with a mental condition, the implication being "he's making all this stuff up". Yes, there had been a mental evaluation of Riconosciuto. I have a copy of the report. The diagnosis? Here it is: NO MENTAL DISORDER. The Department of Justice consistently and maliciously lied to the jury, just as had been threatened by Justice Department official Peter Viednicks if Riconosciuto cooperated with the congressional investigation of PROMIS. (Grabbe)

On the Warpath

This scandal was closely tied to shady dealings by Wackenhut (second largest private security firm in the US) to develop biological warfare viruses on the Cabazon Indian reservation in Indio, California. According to Spy Magazine, by 1966, “Wackenhut could confidently state that it had secret files on 4 million Americans.”

And, “Wackenhut has been involved with the CIA, ex-analyst says, on a quid pro quo basis.” They subcontracted black ops projects. “Wackenhut has been used by the CIA and other intelligence agencies for years…When they {the CIA} need cover, Wackenhut is there to provide it for them.” CIA director William Casey had once been Wackenhut’s lawyer. Is it surprising then that CIA used Wackenhut to conduct operations it was forbidden to undertake and wants to hide from Congress?

Wackenhut Corporation services included guards and electronic security for banks, office buildings, apartments, industrial complexes, even underground bases. In order to develop vaccines, which sounds innocuous enough, the virus must first be created. Biological warfare viruses have to be highly sophisticated to be used in military applications.

In 1981, Berckmans, the CIA agent turned Wackenhut vice president, joined with other senior Wackenhut executives to form the company's Special Projects Division. It was this division that linked up with ex-CIA man John Philip Nichols, who had taken over the Cabazon Indian reservation in California, as we described in a previous article {"Badlands;" April 1992}, in pursuit of a scheme to manufacture explosives, poison gas and biological weapons—and then, by virtue of the tribe's status as a sovereign nation, to export the weapons to the Contras. (Spy Magazine)

The darker side of Wackenhut's ambitious enterprise, is its direct involvement in illegal and black projects. In the early 1980s, Dr. John Nichols, the Cabazon tribal administrator, obtained a Department of Defense secret facility clearance for his reservation to conduct various research projects, to develop weapons and biological weapons in conjunction with Wachenhut.

The reservation was a favorite visiting spot for Saudi sheiks, mob leaders, politicians, military officers, and foreign intelligence people. Two important visitors were Dr. Earl Brian, a businessman with long CIA ties and Peter Videnieks, a Customs lawyer on loan to Justice who Michael said managed the Department a software system. Brian was said to have had many transactions through BCCI and banks in Switzerland and the Cayman Islands. According to both Mike and Bob Nichols, Videnieks was involved with them and Dr. Earl Brian in Hadron Corporation, which tried to buy Inslaw, producer of PROMIS software. Hadron also manufactured lasers. Nicaraguan Contra leaders visited it because weapons were being manufactured there for their use. (Michael Riconosciuto: The Math/Science Wizard Who Said too much, Part 4, by Sherman De Brosse)

Any type of biological research on an Indian reservation is immune to scrutiny by the federal government since Indian reservations are sovereign nations. Wackenhut Corporation attempted to sell "biological warfare viruses" and vaccine kits to the U.S. government to be used against “small countries bordering Albania or large countries bordering the Soviet Union.”

William C. Patrick, III developed the process by which anthrax spores could be concentrated at the level of one trillion spores per gram. Patrick has worked with Kanatjan Alibekov, known as "Ken Alibek" since he defected to the US in 1992. Remember, Alibek served as manager for a CIA biological warfare program in 1998. In Russia, Alibek was the No. 2 expert in the FSU's biowarfare program, under Vladimir Pasechnik, who later died mysteriously.

Ken Alibek became President of Hadron Advanced Biosystems, a subsidiary of Alexandria, Va.-based Hadron, Inc., specializing in “the development of technical solutions for the intelligence community.” It received millions in funding for medical biodefense research in the field of non-specific immunity from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command, and the NIH.
