Who sank the Estonia?

Hi Tap, well it looks like the Jesuit Chickens are coming Home To Roost, however, here is an  Article I Found Quite Interesting, I Am Sure Your Readers Will Be Interested In It Too:


Despite the break-up of the Soviet Union, and the end of the cold war, the west still kept a close eye on Russian military capability, particularly its missile technology. (Of course Russia still had, and has, thousands of nuclear weapons.) One such smuggled shipment, of electronic guidance systems for missiles, had been on the Estonia when it sank. MI6 had been involved in the smuggling operation.

Investigating another story – about international smuggling – when a contact suggested I look at Britain’s role in the Estonia affair. This man, a retired MI6 officer whom I have known for many years, told me that the sinking of the Estonia was not an accident and that Britain and the Baltic nations had good reason to want the wreck buried. Estonia (the country) had been used, he said, as a transit point to get sensitive military technology out of Russia and on to ferries heading for the west. Its relaxed borders and proximity to Russian military bases made it ideal for the task.

Later,  inquiries led  to an American businessman called Gregg Bemis. Bemis, aged 74, of Santa Fe, New Mexico, is an entrepreneur and venture capitalist and a former Republican Party congressional candidate.

He is also a diving and salvage expert who owns the still-submerged wreck of the British liner Lusitania, sunk off Ireland’s coast in May 1915 by a German submarine, with nearly 1,200 dead, including 128 Americans. The attack helped bring the United States into the First World War. Bemis claimed sole ownership of the Lusitania by buying shares from those who had bought the ship from its insurer, and has led several expeditions down to its resting place.

His interest in the Estonia began in August 2000. After being asked by relatives of victims to investigate, he led a dive down to the wreck. It was harassed by the Swedish navy, which forced Bemis to sail from neutral Germany, rather than closer Sweden or Finland. This reduced the time his team could spend diving. The Swedes also despatched military speedboats to circle his ship, while coastguard officers boarded and demanded a crew list.
Warrants for the arrest of Bemis – and his partner in the expedition, a German TV producer called Jutta Rabe – were issued by the Swedish prosecutor. The treaty had made it an offence under Swedish law to dive down and explore the wreck – an offence carrying a maximum penalty of two years in prison. The US State Department warned Bemis to “back off” his investigation, and to this day he faces arrest and possible imprisonment if he ever sets foot in Sweden.
But Bemis’s divers went ahead and found a hole near the bow. They filmed the wreck and brought up pieces of metal cut from near the bow door. Tests at laboratories in the US and Germany showed signs of an explosion on the ferry’s hull. “The results show changes to the metal similar to those seen by high-detonation velocity,” one report concluded.  ……….
The British and Swedish governments were secretly using public transport to smuggle stolen Russian military equipment. Did the Russians find out about it and warn them to stop? We may never know, but it is clear that the western intelligence agencies were taking a risk by using the Estonia, in effect turning the passengers on the ferry into a form of human shield. The major signatories to the treaty – Britain, Russia and Sweden – still have every reason to want the truth about the disaster buried.

    I worked for Robert Maxwell the newspaper and smuggling magnate.
    Some of this is right, but i cannot for the life of me figure where the jesuits fitted in ?
    Mawell was given his name after W W II by MI6 Maxwell was a smuggler
    who used the jewish underground as pipelines, his claim that he was in Aushwitz as a swimming pool attendent is untrue, the man seen in contempory pictures dopes indeed look like him but is not him. Maxwell wasa fixer, he would negotiate between german soviet and english forces playing each off against the other, it should be said he had several ferocious rows with rothschild, and in the finish i belive this cost him his life, he always believed he would be bailed out finacially

    Hi Tap, the lacrymatory effects of Onions is well known, exposing people to the truth is like peeling an Onion. It effects some more than others.

    You can always get used to something if you approach things Incrementally. Even those who thought they could not take on board Peeling Onions.

    REGARDS ………. WASP

    Christopher Bollyn has also featured the Estonia story:

    There’s also a film been made depicting the cover-up:

    The acting is not good but the DVD edition comes with a second DVD containing a short documentary made by the German journalist about the dive they made (as described in your post) – this in itself is worth buying the DVD for!
