"So utterly unprepared for what was coming. There was an interim organization started, but it was kind of the bridge between the CIA and one of them and I write about in the book, Peter Sichel. He was sent to Berlin to head up Thie, this unit of the Strategic Services unit. And this really goes to just how how utterly unprepared Americans were brilliant. Of course, being the post war, Berlin was ground zero of the coming Cold War and There were hundreds, if not thousands of Soviet intelligence officers running through Berlin and the unit. The Peterson headed up and was the first covert intelligence unit in Berlin consisted of nine people. And he was the head of it, and he had just turned 24. So it really It really just shows how how completely I mean not to take anything away from Peter. It was a brilliant man, but they really were not preparing for what they were in for. So as World War, two was wrapping up and the Soviet army was moving into a lot of nations in Eastern Europe. The American policy makers at the top didn't quite get the extent to which the Soviet would seek to create client states in Eastern Europe and These early spies that you write about in the book These members, most of whom had been soldiers, in some cases, operating clandestinely behind German lines. These guys Encountered this and kind of had to alert American policymakers to what's going on. And one of the most striking examples was in the country of Romania. That was Frank Wisner. Right? Who was there? That's right, Frank Wisner. Tell us what he experienced there with with this with the Soviet moves in Romania. Frank Wisner's. He's a fascinating figure, and he would later go on to head the covert operations wing of the CIA. The Office of Policy Coordination but in 1944 for the Romanians, who had been allied with Nazi Germany switched sides and joined the allies and it came when the Soviet army the Red Army was literally on the front two with Romania. So Romania came under Soviet army control very quickly. Frank wizard was the first American in on this. You're talking August September Sept of 1944. So still, there's still another year left in war. And what he saw firsthand was how the Soviets were just dictating the interim government. They were frankly looting the country of Romania, dismantling factories and putting them on trains and hauling it back to the Soviet Union. And he started sending these cable saying our allies the Soviets are are just completely taken over this country and again is very early warning me was the canary in the coal mine was just ignored to the point where his the head of the O S s. William Donovan. Send him back kind of stern cable saying, Don't keep beating upon Soviets. You have to get along with him to us as being the precursor to the CIA, Right? That's right. That's right. And you know, in part of it, you know, And this was just in the run up to the Yalta conference where The right wing political right wing in the United States, and that even today sort of seize the altar as a sell out of eastern Europe that that FDR handed eastern Europe over to the Soviets. But what you also saw the same time in Romania is a good example of this is what could the Americans have done short of going to war or threatening war with the Soviet Union? How are they going to exert their control over Eastern Europe in Romania by 1945. By the end of the war, there were 600,000 Soviet troops just in Romania. And the Americans contingent and remain he was about it was about 150, not 150,000. But 150. So how 150 guys going to stand up to 600,000. So there was really was this element of fate a complete that you saw throughout Eastern Europe. Unless the United States was really you know, really willing to threaten war, which also meant stopping the demobilization on DH gearing up for what would have been World War three. You know, there's a context here, and that is that you know, the Soviets had suffered terribly at the hands of the German invasion. You know what? 20 million or more killed and the Romanians were on the side of the Germans here. So when? When it came time for the Soviets to come back and take the country, there wasn't much goodwill. I mean, there was A sense of hatred and vengeance to be enacted on these people, their former adversaries who had cooperated with the Nazis, and so that was part of what was going on. But they really took over the government kind of basically banned all other political parties. And there's another moment, which is so striking where There were about 100,000 people in Romania of ethnic German descent. What did the Soviets do with him? Right, and it's again. This is when the war the war is still raging. But but Romania is now behind the front lines. The Soviets sent down this edict that all ethnic Germans were to be rounded up and some 100,000 of them were put on trains overcrowded trains. And sent to the Soviet Union essentially is slave labor and Frank Wisner was in Bucharest, the capital. When this was going on, he tried to prevent that he couldn't prevent it. And that image haunted him forever. This watching these tens of thousands of ethnic German families being You heard onto railcars and sent sent off to the Soviet Union. It's something that came up again and again with Frank Wisner throughout the rest of his life, and his wife, one point said, You know, I think everything changed for him at that moment. You know, this image of these civilians being hauled into railroad cars and taken away just inevitably calls to mind the Holocaust. Was that comparison apparent to anybody at the time. I think that's exactly what was in Wisner's mind. And I can see the interesting thing is, In fact, most of those 100,000 ethnic Germans that were Were sent to to the Soviet Union in 1940, for the vast majority of them actually came back. They were worked hard labour for the Soviets, but the vast majority of them came home. But I think the reason that was such a profound effect on Wisner as a witness to that was in his own mind. It inevitably drew comparisons to the Holocaust. I think that's the image that he kept in his mind. Take a break here. Let me reintroduce you. Scott Anderson's new book is the quiet Americans will continue our conversation after the short break. This is fresh air..

"Virtual Convention starts tomorrow and we'll give you a preview of what's going to take place over the next four days. And then the Republican Convention is a week from tomorrow. This hour Excited to talk to Stephen Warshaw, who joins me on his disk Institute of Pittsburgh News line who is at the center of an incredible story that I guarantee almost nobody in Pittsburgh knows. But we should Stephen, welcome to Katie care radio. Pleasure to be with you, Larry. I miss I miss my old stomping grounds a lot. Yeah. When you were here, working with the organization. What part of town did you live in? I lived in Chatham Tower right across from the A glue, So I had a 32nd commute to get to hurt, and I just I stayed up on the hill and Stephen was part of this incredible story that I just watched. Over the weekend called Red Penguins and documentary That's really at the Toronto Film Festival. I think you were probably surprised and how powerful this documentary ended up being right. It is. It was shocking, and I think you know you summed it up best. It's really not a hockey film. It's more of a geopolitical look. Att what went wrong between Russia and the United States in the nineties, and we were the canary in the coal mine, and unfortunately the call mine and everything got blown up, which you'll see in the film. But you at the time, very young sports marketing guy, creative. You tried all these things. So let's set the stage because many people in Pittsburgh who loved the Penguins, they've been really successful. Five Stanley Cups may recall when Howard Baldwin owned the team. He was kind of a business gambler anyway, but an investment was made into the collapsing old Soviet army hockey team, right? Exactly. In what year that was in the early nineties. That was 93 on DH. It was at a time when the Soviet Union had collapsed and there was no funding left. For the government owned teams, which the Army was one and the KGB team was Dinamo. It was another one that also got hit, but they had really rich mobsters to back their team. And the Army had nobody. So Baldwin reached out. Mike Barnett was actually involved at the beginning. Gretzky's agent who I used to work with that I am G, and he heard about this opportunity, too. Save the most famous hockey team in the world 32 national championships. You know, more than the Yankees and the Celtics and, um, right, this was the chance to finally Become partners with what was once considered our greatest foe, and we all remember the 1980 victory the US in the Olympics, and there's always a Pittsburgh connection. Craig Patrick was an assistant coach on the team. He ends up He's the GM and so I mean, how realistic was it that somebody was going toe? Michael J. Fox joined you guys with an investment. But Howard Baldwin took a big chance, didn't you? Well, you know, Howard was right with the W H A, um, you know, he started quite a controversy between the NHL and you know, took some star players to create his new league and our thinking was a little bit different in Moscow. Our goal really was to be friend. Victor Tekin off and Bill Arugula shin, who are the owners of the team. They received the team from the Army. And then the army tried to take it back at gunpoint at one point, which was not in the film, But the Russian army had their guns trained on taking off and Duchin and his team to get them out of the arena. But Bhushan antique enough had hired The special forces from Russia called Spetsnaz. So you had machine guns pointed at either side in front of the arena, So it was really it was a very crazy time and unfortunately The Americans, the Pittsburgh Penguins. We got caught up in the crossfire. And then the Mafia came in and took the team away from everybody, the Army and the Pittsburgh Penguins, and that's sort of the one of the interesting parts of how it ended. But it started absolutely as a disaster you got there. And you've never been there. I mean, phew phew Americans ever were and this the collapse of the USSR. And here's the old Soviet proud Red Army team and you go to their arena, which was called the Ice Palace, but it wasn't it was said it was very sad to see this fabled hockey clubs. You know, just literally on borrowed time. All of the players had been stolen by the NHL. Remember, you have to put yourself in the eyes of the Russians when you want to see what happened to their great Programs on the NHL. Floodgates opened with Mogilny and then Fatih softened starry cough and then bore a Mogilny. Future ofthe Malakhov Kaminsky goose are if they all came in waves. And the Russians received very little compensation and they were left with nothing. I was lucky enough to have worked with a lot of these Russian stars in the NHL. Which is one of the reasons I got the gig because I had a familiarity with the culture and the language, and I had worked with a lot of the Russians from the Red Army team. But for instance, as soon as I started, there was a negative reaction from Slava Fetisov, Larionov. A lot of the older guys Maybe they felt we were scabs, basically breaking a picket line. To work with some of the most evil people in their lives. Remember that Victor teak enough wouldn't even let his players out to see their wives more than five minutes a month. And he would make them have sex in the snow behind the Army barracks If your mother was dying You couldn't go see your mother. You had to wait until she died. And then they would let you out for the funeral. If you if you finished with a silver medal in the Olympics, you would get nothing. If you got the gold, you get $10,000. So the pressure was brutal back then, And and all of a sudden, All of these legends and stars were taken by the NHL, So there was a lot of hostility. Towards us when we came over there wondering what else are we going to steal from the Russians? And then You had your This is where your magic comes in. Steven, your job is to try to figure out in a collapsing country chaos in the streets. Nobody coming to the games. You gotta try to figure out ways. To bring people into the arena, which is what great marketing guys do for a team, right? Well, you know, we we got a little lucky We had a strip bar in the basement of the arena explained there wondering, what do you mean? You had a strip bar in the basement of a hockey rink. Well, this is Russia. This is a very history into place. Prostitution is legal in Russia..

He couldn't even enjoy a cup of tea without it being interrupted by their buzzing he wondered where the choppers were going. This time the. Us military had been daily nuisance in Afghanistan for a decade but lately the foreigners had started targeting bogged chose heroin labs in the mountains. They were blowing them up one by one destroying his equipment and terrorizing his workers. It was costing him a fortune. The noise of the chopper blades was deafening and only kept getting louder. That's when Bob Show realized the helicopters weren't passing by. They were coming for him. I'm Howell argued and I'm Kate Leonard and this is kingpins every week. We journey inside the ranks of Organized Crime Rings From Street gangs to mafiosos to understand how a kingpin or Queen Pin Rises to the top of the underworld and why they fall as we follow the lives of infamous crime bosses will explore how money and power changed them and how it changed the community around them.

We're grateful for you our listeners. You allow us to do what we love. Let us know how we're doing reach out on facebook and Instagram at par cast and twitter at Parkas network? And if you enjoy today's episode the best way to help us is to leave a five star review wherever you're listening. It really does help us. On June twelfth. Two Thousand Twelve seventy year old. Haji bug show stood before a judge in Washington DC. He was a long way from his home in Afghanistan and he might never be going back. Bob Show had just been convicted for drug distribution and narcoterrorism. His lawyers had advised him not to testify at the trial. They didn't want him to incriminate himself but at his sentencing hearing bogged show refused to stay silent. He ranted about the witnesses who had been called to testify against him. They were liars and criminals. According to Bob Show. He called himself an honorable man. A simple merchant like his father and his grandfather before him Cho- may have thought of himself as a merchant but it would be hard to describe his lifestyle as simple by his own admission bog. Joe Owned Property in both Afghanistan and Pakistan more than one person described his home in Afghanistan as a castle with a column lined. Main residence a guesthouse. Electricity and running water luxurious accommodations. Compared to his neighbors most people in bog chose. Providence earned a living by farming raising livestock or trading in lumber bog chose spent his days pudding together. Heroin deals in two thousand six his operation produced and sold over one hundred and twenty thousand kilograms of heroin about twenty percent of the world's total heroin supply that year in a single year bogged show earned two hundred and fifty million dollars making him one of the world's richest people and one of the world's poorest countries. The question is how did he get there? It's a difficult question to answer. Thanks to Afghanistan's chaotic past. Most of bog chose life is a complete mystery until the nineteen nineties when his international heroin operation seemed to emerge from the dust fully formed. But a little bit of history can help us fill in the blanks. Joe was born in nineteen forty two in the Non Gerhard province of eastern Afghanistan later in life bog show earned the title. Haji which is an honorific given to Muslims who have completed the pilgrimage to Mecca when bog show was growing up. Afghanistan was locked in a struggle between urban elites who wanted to modernize the country and rural tribal groups who preferred to keep their traditional ways of life in Nangahar bog. Cho- lived among a fiercely independent tribal community that resisted any intrusion. Bog Show called his people frontier. People the Western press had called the area ungovernable comparing it to the wild west militant groups from al-Qaeda to the Taliban to Aycell have all found refuge. Nangahar is remote mountains and complex cave systems in nineteen forty-five when bog show was just three years. Old Afghantistan banned opium production. As part of the government's modernization efforts after World War. Two new diplomatic relationships were forming around the globe and Afghanistan. DidN'T WANT TO BE LEFT BEHIND. The ban would show the world that Afghanistan was willing to comply with Western norms including drug control regulations but harvesting poppies was a part of daily life. In rural Afghanistan. Peasants made cooking oil from poppy seeds. They burn the flower. Stocks is firewood. They made soap from the Ash and the harvested opium from the flowers for us as a medicine. Banning opium was seen as a tone deaf insult to their traditions. The law was largely ignored as long as the government could point to the opium Ban as a talking point. They didn't bother actually enforcing it. Neighboring countries like Pakistan India and Iran all pass stricter opium bands over the next few decades and they took their regulations seriously as a result opium smuggling out of Afghanistan skyrocketed in the nineteen sixties. By the time bog Joe was in his early twenties. In the mid sixties drug trafficking rings had sprung up all along the border smuggling was so pervasive. It was hardly seen as illegal or immoral years later. After bogged Joe was arrested. His younger brother admitted he was a smuggler. That's true everyone in our area is Boncho came from a relatively well off family. He inherited property from his father. Who was a wooden merchant and used it to start several businesses gas stations. An electronics store an auto import company. But at some point he turned his focus to drug smuggling perhaps he saw it as a business opportunity to lucrative to pass up. He was right about that. It was a lucrative industry and completely resistant to political turmoil. Things didn't slow down at all when the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan in nineteen seventy nine. The Soviet invasion was meant to reinforce Afghanistan's new communist government which had won control in a coup the previous year Afghan rebel fighters who call themselves the mujahideen violently resisted the new communist government and the Soviet Army. The war devastated the country. Soviet troops targeted rural farmers burning fields and destroying irrigation canals but poppies were durable crop. They kept flourishing even in the midst of war so thousands of farmers switch their crop of choice to poppy flowers. Opium production increased exponentially and drug traffickers. Had A rebel army ready and willing to protect them Mujahideen. Commanders forged an alliance with drug traffickers including Haji bog show the invested money and resources into smuggling operations and in return smugglers gave the mujahedeen cut of their profits which they used to fund their fight against the Communists then Mujuhedeen funding source to the United States. Government almost immediately after the Soviets invaded Afghanistan. The C. I. A. began secretly arming and financing the rebel forces in their fight against communism the US was willing to ignore the fact that some of those funds and guns were making their way to drug traders. The increasing flow of drugs was actually a bonus hero and started falling into the hands of the Soviet troops. Soon enough the Soviets were busy shooting up. Instead of spreading the red menace of communism a decade after their invasion the Soviets decided the war was too costly to maintain. They finally withdrew from Afghanistan in nineteen eighty nine but by then an entire drug industry had blossomed from the burnt fields. Relationships had been made trafficking routes had been established and huge opium bazaars had sprung up throughout the country in the early nineteen eighties. One of these opium markets opened in Gani Kill about twenty miles from the city of Jalalabad. It's sprawled across several blocks like a giant flea market with over five hundred dusty shops and booze but instead of selling antiques and goods merchants here sold opium. Throngs of people pushed their way through the bazaar every day among them was Haji bogged show by the end of the Soviet war in nineteen eighty nine bog. Show was nearly fifty years old. And one of Afghanistan's richest drug smugglers. Although he wasn't yet making the nine figure deals he would later be known for some of Bug chose contemporaries were notorious for their decadent lifestyles infamous Afghan kingpin. Haji Khan was known for his extravagant alcohol. Fueled parties a big taboo in a traditionally Muslim country. But bonk showed didn't have that reputation. He was a family man. He had six brothers two wives and sixteen children. He ran his drug operation like any other family. Business is brother. Bandeau oversaw drug labs where chemist manufactured heroin from opium paste. Bog chose son. Soochow Goule handled the money and recordkeeping bogged show employed about two hundred fifty workers. Even if they weren't blood related bog show wanted them all to feel like they were part of the family. He kept them close. Both emotionally and physically. Most of his servants lived full time on his family's compound bog. Joe Even built a house right next to his own for his top chemist farm on Shah bog chose favorite servant. Cari later said I was not his real son but when it came to food clothes and other things I was treated the same. As his son's bag show was a hands on manager he visited bazaars personally to ensure the opium he purchased was top quality. He then sent the opium to his drug labs which were nestled high in the mountains of Nangarhar thousands of feet above ground level once the chemist extracted heroin from the opium. The drugs were brought to bog chose compound where bog show directed his workers to wrap it in. Plastic stamped with bog chose signature seal to his clients. That seal meant that they were getting the best. Most of the heroin was loaded into trucks and smuggled into Pakistan bog show regularly met with Afghan police and Border Patrol officials for a price. He could make sure that none of his couriers ever ran into any trouble as they moved. Caravans of heroin across Afghanistan's route a one for smaller orders. Bod Show had an even more careful strategy. The couriers wouldn't eat for days. Before their task. Their work required empty stomachs. The heroine was put into capsules and when the time came they swallowed them washing them down with glasses of milk in the early nineteen nineties by. Chou built a second home base in Pakistan. He had dual citizenship which wasn't uncommon. The line between the countries was seen as arbitrary among the tribal communities who traded freely and spoke a common language this second home by Joe and his family a place to escape the new wave of violence and disorder. That was already sweeping across Afghanistan.

There's a great Red Army. Sweeps from January of Nineteen forty-five Germany was was losing.

He's a suckling resident who's ethnically Japanese. He was born there raised in Japanese controlled part of Sakhalin. And when he seven years old that all changes. So we'd forces retook the island in after the closing days of World War Two, of course, then taking the nearby Karol islands as well. And so young Maceo see he adapts he learns Russian and later joins the Soviet army to guard against Japanese one point is joke. What's he saying there? He he speaking Russian, just speaking Russian. Yeah. So he saying essentially that when he was service when he was serving in the Soviet army. He said, you know, they used to have these drills, and they make all these jokes saying the Japanese are coming from over there and these practice drills, and they say, what do you mean coming? They're coming. Look, there's one right next to us and say, you know, they'd all joke about that. Because of course, here's this Japanese guy among these Soviet soldiers. So the Russians who support the claim to these islands. There's a group that seems interested in the business opportunities like professor surrogate crooked Penco who seems to be holding onto Soviet values. What you hear from him? Well, yeah. I mean, these days, of course, you talk to locals there. They like the tout Sakhalin's growing economy and integration in the region. But it's important point on this a long way from the days when it was a Soviet territory that was closed outsiders. So Sergei Prokopcuka. He's a professor at suckling state university, which is. Let's professor Prokopcuka saying that he was he was part of the Soviet Union. They were developing the city's factories on something and people who came to work and live there. You know, when he was a schoolboy, for example, he was not interested at all if they had some relations with Japan or not. So let's come back to the curl islands. This other set of islands being disputed today by Russian Japan. They're kind of to the east of the Sakhalin islands. What are the stakes around the curl islands? This is kept the two sides at loggerheads for over seventy years. Now, what's been interesting in this past several years Shinzo obey the Japanese Prime minister, Vladimir Putin Russian president and met many many times trying to figure out a way out of this trying to sort of centrally find an agreement somehow this is something of a mission for Mr. Ave. His in its in with good reason. His father was a Japanese politician. He was in at one point the foreign minister back in the early eighties. He tried to negotiate this deal couldn't do it failed. His grandfather was also involved with us in back in the nineteen sixties, and essentially, so it's kind of this family attempt to as Mr. as been trying to find a way to settle this issue. The problems that he's fighting against Moore nationalist forces within Japan who don't want to see any of this territory to Russia. What is? Ademir Putin want this territory. I mean what's his game here? First of all he's interested to a degree in some kind of agreement because there's opportunities to develop the far east Russia's made this imperative in their policies to try and develop the economy in the far east, and he would certainly be interested in in investment projects from Japanese major business companies on the other hand. Mr Putin has also made restoring the Russian empire part of his kind of a major theme through his rule and look at for example, after the annexation of Crimea. This is of course, territory that once belonged to Ukraine that the Russians have an ex in two thousand fourteen after that, Mr Putin's ratings went through the roof here at home, and it's interesting these days to see that public opinion is highly against the giving away any territory back to Japan, we had protests by nationalist Moscow as Mr..
