2Lt. Scott Allan Bennett will be a guest on the “Cancel the Cabal” radio show this evening at 7:00 p.m. EST to tell his story of how he discovered terrorism funding and the U.S. government’s subsequent cover-up of it

(Feb. 18, 2015) — 2Lt. Scott Allan Bennett, who blew the whistle on terrorist funding through the Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS) and other Swiss banking institutions in 2010 and was subsequently incarcerated for more than two years, will be a guest on the People’s Internet Radio “Cancel the Cabal” show on Wednesday evening beginning at 7:00 p.m. EST.

While working for Booz Allen Hamilton as a Terror Finance Analyst, Bennett discovered channels through which funding from Saudi Arabia and other sources has been placed into Swiss banks, as was the case with London-based HSBC, and laundered through mosques and other outlets to finance terrorist activity which is killing and maiming U.S. soldiers.

As with HSBC, UBS was granted a “deferred prosecution agreement” (DPA) by the U.S. Department of Justice and required to pay $780 million as a financial settlement.

Bennett’s discoveries are inextricably tied to the revelations made by UBS banker Brad Birkenfeld, a U.S. citizen who had knowledge of 19,000 U.S. bank accounts at UBS accounts used to shelter their money from taxation by the IRS, which is legal in Switzerland but violates U.S. law.  A U.S. citizen, during the Bush administration, Birkenfeld asked to be subpoenaed by the U.S. Department of Justice and the IRS and was denied.  After the same request made to the U.S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Intelligence was granted, Birkenfeld testified in May 2007 of his knowledge of and participation in tax-evasion schemes for U.S. citizens with UBS accounts.

His testimony included his knowledge of money-laundering taking place through UBS and resulting in the financing of terrorist activities around the world, but the media was either not told or did not report it.

The chairman of the Permanent Subcommittee, Sen. Carl Levin, did not seek re-election in 2014, as was the case with other members of Congress informed of the money-laundering taking place through UBS, including Rep. Mike Rogers, Rep. Henry Waxman, and Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon.

Although promised immunity by the Obama Department of Justice, Birkenfeld was prosecuted on the grounds that he did not fully reveal his work on behalf of California real estate developer Igor Olenicoff.  Birkenfeld was the only person sent to prison as a result of the exposure of the tax evasion even though he himself blew the whistle on it and assisted the IRS to recover billions in unpaid taxes.

Judge William J. Zloch sentenced Birkenfeld to ten months more in prison than U.S. Justice Department prosecutors sought, rejecting calls for leniency, including from Levin.

After serving confinement time at the federal prison in Schuylkill, PA, Birkenfeld was awarded $104 million, the highest amount ever paid to a whistleblower.

According to Bloomberg on Tuesday, Birkenfeld, who is still on probation following his release from prison in August 2012, will be permitted to travel to France later this month to testify in a case against UBS there.

The Post & Email’s coverage of Bennett’s revelations and ongoing efforts can be found here.  Bennett’s other interviews since his release from prison in February of last year are here.

On Thursday at 11:00 a.m. PST/2:00 p.m. EST, Bennett will be a guest on The Dr. Laurie Roth Show on her new live platform.  Roth’s show officially relaunched under new management on February 2.

To date, the U.S. military appears to have taken no action on Bennett’s intelligence.  As a result of his incarceration, Bennett was dismissed from the U.S. Army Reserves, an action he is appealing.

Other members of Congress Bennett notified in writing about the UBS terror funding include Sen. Rand Paul, Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Lindsey Graham, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, Speaker of the House John Boehner, Rep. Paul Ryan, former Sen. Tom Coburn, Sen. John Cornyn, Rep. Darrell Issa, Rep. Michael McCaul, former Rep. Michele Bachmann, and former Rep. Allen B. West.

Military officers who Bennett informed include Army Chief of Staff Gen. Raymond Odierno; Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey; USACAPOC Gen. Jeff Jacobs, who is now retired; Gen. James Mattis, now retired.

In his letters to the various members of Congress, Bennett indicated that a report he had written at the Army Reserve’s request had “predicted” the terrorist attack which occurred on September 11, 2012 in Benghazi, Libya, killing four Americans.

  1. Why Federal and Military agencies are following illegal orders from DNC Operatives rather than following the Constitutional Oaths they took are questions that need forensic and full prosecution of all the people involved in breaking the laws of America for paychecks and entitlements over the citizens they are supposed to serve.

  2. It is mandatory under Islam for Muslims to pay “Zakat”. Zakat is a so called Islamic “Charity” payment. One EIGHTH of ALL Zakat paid is dedicated to fund Islamic Military. Several of the worlds largest banks engage in what is called “Sharia Financing”. HSBC and AIG are two of them. The U.S. Government taxpayer was forced to bailout AIG on the “these banks are too big to let fail” premise. Much of that bailout money went to fund the Islamic military. AIG is a major Sharia Financing entity. Worse yet, Obama SUPPORTS Zakat.
