The lawsuit claims that 1934 U.S. Federal Reserve notes were issued to the Chinese government, and the gold transferred to the Federal Reserve Bank. 
It is claimed that a total sum of almost one trillion dollars representing both the principal and accumulated interest of the 1934 Federal Reserve notes was fraudulently taken from the plaintiff, Neil Keenan, an agent for the owners, a mysterious Asian entity called “The Dragon Family.”
What makes the lawsuit worth paying attention to is that involves the unresolved June 2009 case of two Japanese citizens caught on a train in Italy while traveling to Switzerland with 134.5 billion dollars in US Federal Reserve notes, bonds and other financial instruments. 
Furthermore, the lawsuit reveals a coordinated international effort to launder, trade and defraud owners or investors of bonds and other financial instruments issued against the “black gold”.
At the heart of this internationally coordinated effort, according to Guyatt, is the Bilderberg Group - which in 1954 played a key role in the passage of a Secret Gold Treaty. What this paper will show is that what lies behind the Bilderberg Group’s involvement with “black gold” is to provide long-term funding for a globally coordinated ‘second’ Manhattan Project.
The ultimate goal of this
globally coordinated project is to comprehensively deal with a subject so
vast and complex as to dwarf the resources of any one nation -
extraterrestrial life and technology.
The lawsuit was filed by William Mulligan Jr and Justin Gardner from Bleakley Platt and Schmidt, a reputable New York law firm. 
The principal plaintiff in the lawsuit, Neil Keenan, claims to have been defrauded by a number of official government agencies and political figures including a little known organization called the Office of International Treasury Control (OITC), and its principal officers Dr Ray Dam (President) and David Sale (Deputy Chief of the Council for Cabinet of OITC).
On the other hand, Sale claims that
Keenan and his accomplices fraudulently gained possession of the bonds from
the OITC. Importantly, neither of the two parties contesting ownership of
the bonds dispute their validity.
Financial Instruments seized at Chiasso, Italy
The core claim of the November 2011 District Court filing is that the bonds apprehended in Chiasso, Italy in June 2009 by the Italian financial police were genuinely issued by the Roosevelt administration in exchange for gold deposited by the Nationalist Government of China some time before the Japanese invasion on July 7, 1937.
The lawsuit states:
The lawsuit goes on to claim that the 134.5 billion dollars of gold given to the U.S. government was only a small percentage of the total gold held by China’s nationalist government, or the Kuomintang.
The total was estimated to be “thousands of trillions” in value - which seems like an impossibly high estimate given current knowledge of world gold reserves. According to Wikipedia, 165,000 tons of gold are known to exist - at the current market price of $1700 per ounce, this comes out to approximately 10 trillion U.S. dollars.
Thousands of trillions would be gold reserves of approximately 20
million metric tons or more.
According to Benjamin Fulford (the former Asia bureau chief for Forbes Magazine from 1998-2005 before he became a spokesperson for the Dragon Family in 2007) the gold transfer was secretly conducted by the U.S. Navy which in 1938 took possession of the gold via seven destroyers to the U.S. mainland. 
events occurred in conformity with the 1934 Gold Act and President
Roosevelt’s 1933 Executive Order (6102) which prohibited private ownership
of gold, and instructed private citizens to sell all their gold to the
Federal Reserve Bank at a prescribed rate of $20.67.
The lawsuit then goes on to explain how Swiss banks acted as intermediaries:
Most important was the procedure for redeeming the Federal Reserve notes which the lawsuit describes:
This apparently was why original press reports of the 134.5 billion seized
at Chiasso concluded they were forgeries.
Later in the lawsuit, the “old families” are described as "group of Asians of royal blood known as the Dragon Family” - the remnants of China’s former Celestial Kingdom. 
The Dragon Family initially wanted to protect the gold reserves entrusted to them from Japan and later communist authorities.
Currently headed by a mysterious General Haan, the Dragon Family had unsuccessfully attempted to redeem the bonds over several years through their signatory Yamaguchi.
The Dragon Family subsequently appointed Neil Keenan to take charge of the Bonds in early 2009 with the purpose of lawfully redeeming them for,
At a certain point in complex negotiations, Keenan instructed the two Japanese citizens - Akihiko Yamaguchi and Mitsuyoshi Watanabe acting as couriers for “The Dragon Family” - to transport the bonds to the proper Swiss banking authorities for their ultimate redemption.
The detention of Watanabe and Yamagushi, and confiscation of the 134.5 billion in bonds by the Italian financial police on the border town of Chiasso, according to the lawsuit, was part of an elaborate attempt to steal the bonds by a host of actors.
In addition to the Office of International Treasure Control and its principal officers, the named targets of the lawsuit include,
Keenan is described as a US citizen currently residing in Bulgaria who first come into contact with the Dragon Family in August 2008 due to his political connections, and assistance with bank contacts in Cyprus.
The principal parties named in the lawsuit are,
The lawsuit contests:
Prior to the lawsuit being filed in November 2011, David Sale gave a series of interviews back on April 7, April 12 and May 10, 2011, on the popular internet radio show, Rumormill News, Sale told the host Rayelan Allan, that in 1995 the head of the OITC, Ray Dam, had been given exclusive rights to the “collateral accounts” of all the gold secretly hidden during the World War II era, by descendents of a world wide association of exiled royal families - “the Hierarchy”. 
Included in the list of royal families named by Sale are the descendents of the Hapsburgs, Savoy, Romanovs and many other royal families who collectively owned, according to Sale, two million metric tons of gold.
According to Sale, the Royal Families handed over ownership of the “collateral accounts” once they realized that redemption of the 50 year bonds making up the “collateral accounts” would be challenged by powerful financial institutions from around the world.
Dr Ray Dam, also an alleged royal family descendent, was tasked with the job of redeeming the bonds for the purposes of world wide humanitarian projects.
The OITC website explains:
According to Sale, the Federal Reserve bonds discovered at Chiasso Italy in June 2009, are part of the “collateral accounts” entrusted to the OITC, and were stolen by Keenan.
Sale further claims that he has documentation that
Neil Keenan is in fact a CIA official who in collaboration with another CIA
agent that had infiltrated the OITC, Keith Scott, had stolen the bonds from
His core claim that Ray Dam was entrusted with all the “collateral accounts” of national gold reserves historically taken/stolen from royal families sounds fanciful. Yet Sale’s credibility is vouched for by Rayelan Allan who along with her ex-husband, Gunther Russbacher, was involved in locating and repatriating missing national gold reserves for several decades.
Russbacher is of Austrian descent and his father was in Nazi Intelligence, and emmigrated to the US after the war, in 1954. Allan claims to have assisted Russbacher in the secret relocation of Austrian national gold reserves looted by NAZI Germany, from the Philippines back to Austria in 1994.
She provided documentation concerning the Austrian
gold transfer to the investigative journalist David Guyatt, author of the
first book dealing with looted and missing national gold reserves, The
Secret Gold Treaty (2000). 
Guyatt found Russbacher and Allan to be credible and described in some detail their role in relocating Austrian gold reserves which he described as a single transfer of 500 metric tons, though Allan claimed the total was much higher with multiple transfers (totaling an astonishing 500,000 metric tons).
According to Allan, the OITC is authentic and Sale is telling the truth in exposing Neil Keenan as a CIA operative trying to steal the Federal Reserve bonds discovered by Italian authorities in June 2009. [See update 1/18/12 below]
What certainly doesn’t help Keenan’s lawsuit is the claim that somehow Dal Bosco gained possession of the Dragon Family Financial Instruments (DFFI) in September 2009.
If the DFFI were seized by the Italian authorities in June 2009, how did Dal Bosco gain possession three months later before handing them off to the OITC?
This is not explained in the lawsuit, and the reader is left to assume that the Italian Financial police somehow handed the Federal Reserve notes and bonds seized at Chiasso to Dal Bosco.
Why and how is not clearly explained in the
lawsuit, making it difficult to imagine that the lawsuit will succeed. So
while the lawsuit appears genuine enough and was lodged by a reputable law
firm, its failure to explain the alleged transfer of the financial
instruments seized at Chiasso into Dal Bosco’s possession does raise
questions over the legal strategy behind the lawsuit.
In an interview, Fulford claimed that 85% of the world’s gold was acquired over the millennia by China’s dynastic rulers. 
If the world’s known gold reserves of 165,000 metric tones is 15% of the real figure, that means that approximately one million metric tons of missing gold reserves exist elsewhere. Much of this missing gold allegedly remains under the control of the Dragon Family whose interests Keenan was representing in the case of the Chiasso incident.
If the Keenan’s account in the lawsuit is accurate, the Chinese gold transferred to the US Federal Reserve Bank in the mid-1930s is only the tip of the iceberg. Entrusting the Federal Reserve notes and bonds to Keenan appears to have been calculated gamble.
In fact, Wilcock (and Fulford) refers to the actions of the Dragon Family as being an “elaborate sting operation.” 
They were fully aware that their bonds would very likely be
taken from Keenan at some point, but believed that the eventual lawsuit
would be the catalyst for the rest of the world learning about the way in
which China’s and other national gold reserves have been secretly taken out
of circulation for decades.
Along with Rayelan Allan who
with her former husband, Gunther Russbacher, were also involved in efforts
to bring public attention to missing national gold reserves, it is very
possible that Keenan is part of an “officially sanctioned” attempt to co-opt
and publicize such efforts; or he may simply be part of a “Dragon Family”
sting operation to publicize the history behind the bonds as suggested by
Most importantly, both parties agree that the bonds were issued by the US Federal Reserve bank against gold reserves leased to it during the Second World War era.
The national gold reserves of nationalist China, in Keenan’s/Dragon Family lawsuit version of historic events (somewhere in the range from one to 20 million tons); or the gold of most of the worlds exiled royal families in the Sale/OITC version of events (two million tons) dwarf in size the known world gold reserves of 165,000 tons.
The most telling fact to emerge from the lawsuit is that the vast majority of the world’s gold has been hidden away from public knowledge and scrutiny for decades.
As David Guyatt explains it back in 2000:
his historic gold deception can only have been achieved by the concerted efforts of central banks with the approval of senior government officials from around the world in order to manipulate national monetary policies.
Guyatt succinctly describes the situation:
After reviewing a number of documents describing the movement of Gold, David Guyatt concludes that the secret agreement happened in 1954:
As to where this secret treaty was negotiated and even signed Guyatt settles on the first ever Bilderburg meeting:
The 1954 Bilderberg meeting had multiple reasons to convene.
The public justification was that it was held to promote political and economic cooperation between Europe and North America as the best defense to what was now perceived as the long term threat of communism. To that end, prominent business and political leaders have been regularly invited to Bilderberg Group on an annual basis to discuss ways of coordinating national policies and anticipating global trends.
The annual meetings of some of the worlds most powerful public figures has naturally led to much curiosity over the Bilderberg Group’s origins and goals.
Here is how best selling author Daniel Estulin describes the Bilderberg Group:
Estulin goes on to conclude that since 1954, the Bilderberg Group has become a shadow world government:
Among the many notable individuals involved with Bilderberg Group meetings over the decades since its formation, Estulin gives special mention to the role of Henry Kissinger who was a protégé of the Rockefeller brothers.
Estulin describes some of Kissinger’s work for the Rockefellers and the Bilderberg Group since the 1960s:
Later in the 1970s, Estulin describes Kissinger’s role in the removal of President Nixon:
While Estulin identifies some of the Bilderberg Group’s key players, he only
captures the surface layer of the Bilderberg Group’s origins and goals.
This long term threat was only shared on a need-to-know basis, and emanated from World War II events involving Nazi Germany’s advanced technology programs.
Events which Nelson Rockefeller and Kissinger
were deeply involved - the existence of extraterrestrial life and
The first source were a number of expeditions by Nazi SS Ahnenerbe research teams that searched for ancient advanced technologies buried remote locations such as Tibet, or knowledge recorded in historical texts. 
Authors such as
Erich Von Daniken and others have cited
extensive historical evidence of ancient astronauts and the knowledge they
left behind. 
Lt Colonel Phillip Corso, who was a senior officer in charge of reverse engineering extraterrestrial technology during the Eisenhower and Kennedy administrations, gave support to such an event in an interview:
The partly successful efforts by top Nazi scientists in understanding ancient historical texts discussing advanced technologies, and reverse engineering extraterrestrial technology was a major factor in Nazi Germany’s advanced weapons technology program.
This led to the Nazis prolonging the war effort in order to fully deploy these new weapons systems.
This is confirmed by Captain Edward Ruppelt who was the initial Chief Investigator for US Air Force Project Bluebook:
As the Second World War drew to a close with the inevitable defeat of Nazi Germany, the Nazi SS began to secretly remove its most advanced technologies, projects and scientists to sympathetic countries in Latin America.
Importantly, the relocation of these advanced technology projects was also accompanied by the movement of looted Nazi gold reserves, as David Guyatt explains in his book, The Secret Gold Treaty:
President Roosevelt appointed Nelson Rockefeller to the position of “Coordinator of Inter-American Affairs” in the Office of Inter-American Affairs in 1940.
Rockefeller was responsible for a program of US cooperation
with South American nations, and to counter rising Nazi influence in the
region. With the help of the FBI which at the time had field offices in
South and Central America, Rockefeller led counter-intelligence operations
in order to find the relocated Nazi technology projects and the looted gold.
‘Operation Paperclip’ involved the removal of hundreds of Nazi
scientists to the well funded military-scientific laboratories created to
produce weapons for the war effort. 
Kissinger was born in Fuerth, Germany on May 27, 1923, and served in the Army Counterintelligence Corps from 1943-46.
At the close of World War II, he stayed on active duty in occupied West Germany.
He was assigned to the 970th Counter Intelligence Corps Detachment, among whose ‘official’ functions included the recruitment of ex-Nazi intelligence officers for anti-Soviet operations inside the Soviet bloc. 
in reality, was playing a key role in ‘Operation Paperclip’ - a role that
would mark him out in military intelligence circles as someone who had the
keen intellect and strategic thinking abilities that could handle the most
important strategic policy issue facing the US - how best to respond to an
undisclosed extraterrestrial presence. 
By 1950, Kissinger was now a graduate student and was working part time for the Department of Defense. He regularly commuted to Washington - as a consultant to its Operations Research Office which was under the direct control of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
The Operations Research Office ‘officially’ conducted highly
classified studies on such topics as the utilization of former German
operatives and Nazi partisan supporters in CIA clandestine activities.
Kissinger’s official duties were once again a cover for his role in
coordinating the recruitment and utilization of former Nazi scientists in
clandestine projects involving the
reverse engineering of extraterrestrial
Kissinger’s role expanded to dealing with the extensive policy
issues surrounding the
extraterrestrial presence. Kissinger’s inside
knowledge of Operation Paperclip and the extraterrestrial presence, combined
with his strategic thinking abilities, marked him as someone who would
rapidly assume a prominent position in the decision making hierarchy.
Rockefeller from 1953-59 was Chairman of the President’s ‘Advisory Committee on Government Organization.’ In addition, in 1954 Eisenhower appointed Rockefeller his Special Assistant for Cold War Planning, a position that officially involved the ‘monitoring and approval of covert CIA operations’.
This was a cover for Rockefeller’s
true role in coordinating U.S. and allied response to the presence of
extraterrestrial life and technology. 
This is what Kissinger said about his 1954 meeting with Rockefeller 25 years later in a Eulogy Kissinger gave for Rockefeller in 1979:
Kissinger’s role in the clandestine operations, his close relationship with Nelson Rockefeller, his intellectual abilities, all combined to lead to a steady increase in his influence.
Rockefeller and others running clandestine organizations understood the danger in not coordinating clandestine policy towards extraterrestrial life and technology, with the more conventional foreign policy issues that were the focus of public attention. They were acutely aware of the potential threat posed by an extraterrestrial presence whose technological capacities far exceeded humanity’s.
The very first Bilderberg meeting in May 1954 was set up with all these considerations in mind. Most importantly, however, was the fact that the first Bilderberg meeting occurred soon after another major event that is yet to be disclosed to the public.
That is President
Eisenhower’s alleged meeting with a
delegation of extraterrestrials at Edwards Air Force base in February 1954.
Apparently, the extraterrestrial delegation wanted to persuade Eisenhower to use his personal authority to put an end to the development of the Hydrogen bomb whose destructive capacities far exceeded the more primitive nuclear fission bombs used on Japan.
The extraterrestrials offered to help the U.S. develop spiritually and ethically before introducing advanced technologies that could also be used for weapons of mass destruction. Eisenhower’s national security team was firmly opposed to the extraterrestrial’s overtures.
This is how one alleged witness described the scene and the conflict between Eisenhower’s national security advisors:
The date of May for Eisenhower’s tentative extraterrestrial disclosure announcement is an important clue to the timetable decision makers were using to decide what to do about the extraterrestrials concerns over nuclear weapons.
The diplomatic meeting failed and less than two weeks later, America tested its largest ever hydrogen bomb on March 1, 1954 - the Bravo Test’s 15 megaton yield was 1000 times more destructive than the bomb used at Hiroshima.
Rather than move forward with a May 1954 Disclosure announcement, Eisenhower instead approved keeping the existence of extraterrestrial life a closely guarded secret.
In May 1954, what happened instead was approval for a meeting of global elites under the auspices of the Rockefeller family - the very first Bilderberg meeting:
Recordings from the first Bilderberg meeting
Oosterbeek, Netherlands, 1954
A highly secretive second Manhattan project that had begun in the United States under President Truman to deal with the extraterrestrial presence was expanded to include other nations in a globally coordinated effort.
Eisenhower’s election in November 1952, offered
his chief supporters,
the Rockefeller Family, the opportunity to have
greater corporate involvement in the now secret ‘Global’ Manhattan Project.
Nelson (left) & David Rockefeller
The Rockefeller brothers (Nelson and David) along with Henry Kissinger, were instrumental in shaping the Eisenhower government’s response to the extraterrestrial presence using Cold War covert operations as a cover, and helping set up the Bilderberg Group for that purpose.
The Bilderberg Group
would meet to coordinate national policies so that humanity would have the
best chance of surviving the challenges posed by visitation of different
extraterrestrial factions with unknown agendas.
The Global Manhattan Project would cost hundreds of billions in the 1950s, and eventually grow to trillions to fund each year.
It would have to be funded
in a way that the mass media and national legislatures would not discover
what was happening. More importantly, a funding mechanism would need to be
found that was reliable and could last for decades if some of the more
conventional sources were exposed and/or dried up.
Nor would funding the global Manhattan project entirely from corporations controlled by political and social elites from around the world suffice. Company shareholders would revolt if too much money disappeared for development purposes into unknown corporate programs thereby threatening dividends and stock value.
While extraterrestrial technologies offered fantastic possibilities for future revenue, the market release of these were subject to national security concerns that would override company profit sheets.
Even the largest multinational corporations
where in no position to commit billions of dollars for research and
development purposes without any timetable for when their investments would
see the light of day in a market release.
The CIA is unique among U.S. departments in that it can receive or transmit revenue between U.S. departments without regard to law:
Basically, the 1949 CIA Act gave the CIA the legal cover to launder money through different government departments and agencies.
The CIA immediately
began setting up a host of unconventional funding sources for its covert

The funding strategies used by the CIA,
...were not a long term solution for funding the Global Manhattan Project.
If any of these funding methods were publicly exposed or dried up in some way, the Global Manhattan Project could be at risk. Nor were the CIA’s funding methods easily transferable to the intelligence agencies of other nations. So a more long term global funding mechanism was developed at the first ever Bilderberg Group meeting.
This is the Secret Gold Treaty
first exposed by David Guyatt in 2000, and linked to the Bilderberg Group’s
Guyatt reached a similar conclusion about the purpose of the Gold Treaty negotiated in 1954, most likely at the Bilderberg conference:
Guyatt claims that in 1972, another secret meeting occurred to formalize the 1954 meeting given changes in the international system with the growing international prominence of Asian economies:
Basically, as Guyatt first revealed, the amount of publicly known and tradable gold would be contrived by deflating the amount of historically mined gold to the current estimate of 165 thousand tons.
In reality, the amount of “black gold” greatly exceeded this by as much as a factor of a 100 or even more. Keeping Asia’s and Europe’s “black gold” off the books would offer a cache of gold that could be moved, traded and/or liquidated in ways that would generate enormous sums for different national intelligence agencies.
According to Guyatt:
The CIA and other developed world intelligence agencies would cooperate with
the political and economic elites of different nations under the auspices of
the Bilderberg Group to ensure these enormous sums were directed into the
global Manhattan project.
Whenever the rightful owners, their descendents or representatives, attempt to redeem the bonds issued against their gold, they get caught up in a complex legal process that often results in charges of financial fraud. This is what has happened with the Chiasso Italy incident which is the core of the New York lawsuit.
David Guyatt described a similar incident that occurred in the 1990s in his ebook, The Secret Gold Treaty.
Ownership of the majority of black gold, however, is unclear due to the twists and turns of history’s wars where national treasures were looted and hidden in secret locations by invading forces.
This historical process has made “black gold” ideal collateral for long-term funding of a secret Global Manhattan Project where bonds can be issued against the hidden gold by major financial institutions. Organizations such as the Bilderberg Group help coordinate international efforts to fund this global project through black gold and other available funding revenues created by the CIA and other intelligence agencies.
The ultimate goal of this globally coordinated
Manhattan Project is to comprehensively deal extraterrestrial life and
technology, the vastness and complexity of which would otherwise dwarf the
resources of any one nation.
I received the following email by French author Jean-Marie Le Ray after publishing the above study.
Consequently, the financial instruments mentioned in Keenan's lawsuit are different to those seized by the Italian authorities in June 2009. It appears that Dal Bosco gained possession of another set of Dragon Family Financial Instruments (DFFI) in September 2009 to those confiscated at Chiasso.
This supports the claim by Keenan and the Dragon Family that the
bonds seized at Chiasso are only a portion of the total amount of bonds held
by the Dragon Family.
