The release, which details top-secret dealings between then Secretery of State Henry Kissinger, and business tycoon David Rockefeller, is likely to fuel one of the longest running conspiracy theories – that the US Government is actually run from behind the scenes by a secretive global elite known as the Illuminati.
The Rockefellers is an American industrial, political, and banking family that made one of the globe’s biggest fortunes in oil from the late 19th century.
John D Rockefeller and brother William Rockefeller made this primarily through Standard Oil.
The family went on to control Chase Manhattan Bank and is considered the most powerful familiy ever in the US.
Conspiracy theory websites list the Rockefeller family as one of 13 top Illuminati dynasties and claim they are attempting to install a New World Order upon the Earth, which would ultimately be one global Government controlled by them.
There is no real evidence to support the myth, but, according to conspiracy theory website the greaterpicture.com, the Rockefellers is one of these families.
The website states: “The elite, that is the part of the elite that call themselves the illuminati, “the enlightened ones”, contains at the heart 13 incredibly rich, zionist families that are in constant contact with each other.
“Their names are probably Rothschild, Rockefeller, Warburg, Bruce, Cavendish, De Medici, Hannover, Habsburg, Krupp, Plantagenet, Romanov, Sinclair and Windsor, but this list is kept hidden from the outside world so meticulously that some sources mention a different name in a few places.”
The new WikiLeaks disclosure will further stoke the conspiracy, because Kissinger, now 93, is also alleged to be part of the Illuminati.
The greater picture.com article continues: “They are supported by another 300 families, often with well-known names such as Agnelli, Bush, Ford, Kuhn, Loeb, Montgomery, Morgan, Roosevelt and Schiff.
“Many power-hungry people mix with them as well, such as Henry Kissinger, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Bill Gates, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Warren Buffet, etc. Together they control practically all power and money in the world.”
The WikiLeaks disclosure, which will be seized upon by conspiracy theorists behind the Illuminati myth, is one of a tranche of files called the Carter Cables III released this week which date back to 1979.
It concerns the US agreeing to shelter the family of the last Shah of Iran, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, after the Iranian Revolution of the same year.
It came after he was overthrown by an Islamic uprising, and 66 Americans were held hostage at the US Embassy in Tehran.
A document disclosed by WikiLeaks in a section dedicated to former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, showed how American business tycoon David Rockefeller agreed behind the scenes to find somewhere for the disposed Shah to stay – provided his involvement was kept hidden from public view.
The cable shows the magnate agreed to “make arrangements for the future residence” of Ashraf Pahlavi Princess, the sister of the Shah.
Kissenger and Rockefeller were said in the document to “specifically discuss Mexico, the Bahamas and possibly Argentina” as asylum options and made contact “with several people in the US” to look at “places in Central and South America “.
Furthermore, in the disclosed document it emphasises that Rockefeller wanted to “minimise the knowledge of their participation” in these matters taking into account ” its interests in Iran “.
The document states: “At Henry Kissinger’s request David Rockefeller has now agreed to assist in locating alternative refuge for Shah and entourage.
Joseph Reed of Rockefeller’s staff has advised under Secretary Newsome of the following.
“By family agreement Princess Ashraf has now been Appointed to make arrangements for future residence.
“She is today, March 23, in touch with David Rockefeller and is discussing specifically Mexico, the Bahamas and possibly Argentina.
“Rockefeller has apparently agreed to make discreet approaches on Princess Ashraf’s behalf.
“Foregoing is for your information.
“If King Hassan or Guedira, however, should ask about current status of our secret state efforts on the Shah’s behalf, you may say that you understand Princess Ashraf has been designated to locate a haven and is in touch with various people in the US regarding sites in Central and South America.
“David Rockefeller would like to minimise knowledge of his own involvement in view of interests in Iran.”
Richard Stone wrote on thetruthseeker.co.uk: “Who are the Illuminati? They are, in essence, a cartel of international bankers and industrialists based in Western Europe and North America. The names of certain families persist over long periods of time. Some of the most important names are Rothschild, Rockefeller, Morgan, Lazard, Warburg, Schroder and Schiff.
“The Rockerfellers currently have controlling interests in Exxon, the world’s biggest company, and the Chase Manhattan Bank, which turns over trillions of dollars a week.
“With so many billions in their hands already, what does more money mean?
“Obviously it means more power and more control over other human beings, but to what end and in whose name?”
The Rockefellers are not known to have ever commented publicly on the bizarre claims.
Of course politicians and business leaders have always held secret talks, and there is no real evidence that the Illuminati even exists.
According to debunking website occupy theory.org, there is no such thing as the Illuminati.
The website states: “It’s supposedly a secret organisation that no one knows about… yet everyone knows about it. That’s why the Illuminati can be easily debunked. For every attributed action they have taken, there are explainable facts behind the circumstances.
“People will always believe in the things that make sense to them, so to some extent, the Illuminati are always going to exist.
“Nothing will change that. What can happen is an honest look at verifiable facts.
“Test everything that comes your way. Only take the good out of what you discover – the honest evidence that can only come from real evidence, not perceived evidence.
“In doing so, you will discover that when people see the Illuminati everywhere and controlling everything, it is because that’s what they are choosing to see.”
