While we are not Middle East experts, we do have vital data on U.S. multinationals and U.S. intelligence agencies presently intervening in this area. Our intention is to contribute information to help transform the oppressive conditions in the Middle East. With this in mind, we welcome criticism and input from our readers. We also seek financial support in order to continue our work. Quite simply, we cannot resume publishing unless dona- tions are forthcoming. Clearly, this would be a toss since research projects have been com- pleted and await publication. SECTION 1 : Programs of Imperialism U.S. IMPERIALISM American technical assistance to Jordan began in 1952. Despite the expressed opposition of the Jor- danian Parliament, American officials had complete executive and administrative control over this as- sistance. With this as a wedge, the US government increasingly infiltrated Jordan. By 1957 the US government had replaced Britain as the imperial power in Jordan. The Eisenhower Doc- trine, a product of Cold War diplomacy, defined America's interests in the area. The Doctrine was proclaimed on January 5, 1957; it offered in part: " secure and protect the integrity and politi- cal independence of such nations requesting such aid against overt armed aggression from a nation controlled by international communism." The Jor- danian Parliament and people emphatically rejected the Eisenhower Doctrine. It was also in this time period that the CIA began covert payments to Hussein. (See accompanying in- sert on Latrash.) Quickly thereafter Hussein de- clared martial law on April 27, 1957, claiming that he was "pre-empting" a communist plot by Nasserist Egypt to take over Jordan. On April 29, 1957, U.S. Ambassador Lester D. Mallory approved a grant of $10 million* in recognition of the "brave steps taken by his Majesty King Hussein and by the government and people of Jordan to maintain the integrity and inde- pendence of the nation." 1 Hence, the US government through the CIA helped establish a Jordanian police state to serve American military, strategic and economic interests in the Middle East. * Apparently, Washington agreed there was no foreign intervention. The $10 million grant was issued ac- cording to the provisions of the Mutual Security Act of 1954. It was not issued under the Eisenhower Doc- trine which provided funding for outside communist intervention. BLACK SEPTEMBER The establishment of the Israeli state in 1948 marked the beginning of a watershed period for the people of the Middle East. The expropriation of Palestinian land by Zionist settlers was followed by the forced expulsion of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who entered the surrounding Arab states. Many Palestinians fled to Transjordan which had an- nexed the West Bank in 1948. This traitorous annex- ation in collusion with Israel led to the assassina- tion of the Abdullah Amir, the king of Transjordan at the time. His grandson, Hussein eventually re- placed Abdullah as the new puppet king of Jordan. By the late 1960's the Palestinians had created "in contempt of the Puppet King" 2 their own de facto state in Jordan. The Palestinian resistance used this as their base tor politicizing the Pales- tinian people and initiating armed struggle against Zionist occupation of their land. The Palestinians came to the fore as the most revolutionary force in the region. For this reason, the Palestinians were a threat to U.S. imperialism, Zionism and Arab State capitalism in the region. The Palestinian resistance was successful in push- ing forward the class struggle in the Arab world by exposing the true class character of the Arab re- gimes. And secondly, the Palestinian resistance brought into question the imperialist alliance be- tween the Arab ruling classes and the U.S. By 1970, the U.S. government perceived the Pales- tinian resistance as a threat to their military and economic interests in the region. Following the Israeli occupation of the West Bank in 1967, a large influx of Palestinian refugees entered the East Bank of Jordan. This large influx intensified the Pales- tinian resistance in Jordan which would eventually lead to a clash with Hussein's regime. In collusion with the U.S. government, largely through the CIA, Hussein's armed forces prepared themselves for an all out assault on the Palestinians in Jordan. The CIA set in motion a world-wide black Approved For Release 2010/06/03: CIA-RDP90-00845R000100150004-7 Approved For Release 2010/06/03: CIA-RDP90-00845R000100150004-7 propaganda operation. Its objective was to discred- it and divide the Palestinian forces. 3 Another ob- jective was to intimidate the other Arab regimes from assisting the Palestinians.

Latrash along with Rayuond Warren had a hand in: (1)overthrowing Jocabo Arbenz, President of Guatemala, and (2)installing a fascist, military junta which superceded Arbenz's democratic- ally-oiected government. In 1967, Latrash partici- pated in the overthrow of President Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana. In 1971, Latrash was assigned as Political Director of the US Embassy in Santiago, Chile. As Political Director he helped coordinate the over- throw of Chile's popularly-elected president, Salvador Allende. Latrash is an extremely dangerous person and should he watched wherever he is. As the above in- dicates, his last known whereabouts was LaPaz, Boli- via. CounterSpy welcomes more recent information regarding this threat to humanity. *"5-11" S indicates Foreign Service Staff Officer, number indicates rank. President's (Nixon) Situation room. Included in the planning were the Israeli and Jordanian Ambassadors, Henry Kissinger, Richard Helms from the CIA, David Packer from the US Department of Defense, and Admi- ral Thomas Moorer from the US Joint Chiefs of Staff.5 The contingency plans included the activation of Israeli forces who were prepared to attack Syrian tanks in Northern Jordan. In West Germany the U.S. troops were on the alert in case military support was needed. The U.S. also had access ty Israel's flight zones if air support was needed.' On September 21, 1970, Hussein's army unleashed ten days of death and destruction on the Palestin- ians. At the same time, the US Sixth Fleet was rushing towards Jordan. U.S. airborne troops from the Eighth Infantry Division were prepared to para- chute into Amman if necessary.7 When the cease- fire was proclaimed, "The streets of Amman were lit- eraZZy knee-deep in discarded empty ammunition crates from the royal tanks. This trash was all stamped 'Made in the USA' and here and there a red- white-and-blue emblem announced that the shells were the gift of the 'People to People' program." 8 David Packard proudly stated after the massacre, "that Hussein's troops had demonstrated what Ameri- can-armed and American-trained troops could do..."9 Although Jordan is a constitutional monarchy, po- litical parties have been banned since 1957. In 1967, Jordan had a sham election in which no poli- tical parties participated. In November, 1974, Hussein unilaterally revised the Jordanian constitu- tion. He dissolved the only elected portion of gov- ernment, the 60 member House of Representatives, and created a new Senate with 30 members. In this change Palestinian representation was reduced from 15 to 7. Hussein also reduced the number of Pales- tinians who held Cabinet and Ambassadorial posts. At the same time, a large portion of Jordan's popu- lation is Palestinian - over one million in a coun- try of 2.57 million. Under the present constitution, executive power is vested in the King and his advisors, the Council of Ministers. In addition, the King has the self-dele- gated power to appoint and dissolve the Senate and call elections when he wants. At present there is not a single elected member in the government., In Jordan today, formal political participation is non- existent. +"R-6" R indicates Foreign Service Reserve Officer, number indicates rank. AID's Office of Public Safety (OPS) began training and arming the Jordanian security forces. Sixty-five Jordanian officers were trained at the International Police :Academv in Washington, D.C., for the upcoming massacre. 4 Washington then instigated an emergency plan for September, 1970. This plan was coordinated in the Further illustration of the total denial of popu- lar participation was seen in the case of the Jor- danian National Union (JNII), founded by Hussein in September, 1971. The JNU was the only existing po- litical organization in Jordan, but it excluded all leftists and progressives. In March, 1972, the JNII was renamed the Arab National Union (AN11). By April, 1974, Hussein was suspicious of his own organization. Hussein promptly dissolved its executive committee and forced the resignation of its Secretary-General. In February, 1976, ANU "!as abolish 18 and token polit- ical participation came to an end.

The Central Bank of Jor- dan, controlled by Hussein, established in 1964, is the bank of issue having assumed the functions of the Jordanian Currency Board. It also manages the Ex- change Control. Its Governor-Director is Said Nabul- si; its Deputy-Governor is Husayn El-Kasim. The gov- ernment also runs the Industrial Development Bank (F. 1965) and a credit insitution, Agricultural Cred- it Corporation (F. 1960) whose Director-General is M.O. Qur'an. Jordan also has 12 commercial banks with 103 branches. Only 4 of them are Jordanian and 3 of the 4 were founded since Hussein's coronation. They are: Arab Bank, Ltd. (F. 1930; Chairman, Abdul Majeed Shoman); Bank of Jordan, Ltd. (F. 1960; Chair. and Gen. Manager, Husni Sido Al-Kurdi); Cairo-Amman Bank (F. 1960; Gen. Man. Haidar Chukri; Chairman Jawdat Shash'a); and Jordan National Bank, S.A. (F. 1956; Chair, and Gen. Man. H.E. Suleiman Sukkar; Deputy- Gen. Managers H.E. Abdul-Kader Tash and Dr. Abder Rahman S. Tougan). The other 8 commercial banks are foreign-owned in- cluding the Chase-Manhattan which was established in 1976, the year Hussein visited David Rockefeller. Insurance companies, another large source of capital, are also divided up between Hussein's clique and for- eign investors, particularly American and British. Control and ownership of the forces of production in the industrial sector are illustrated by the fol- lowing chart. Phosphates are Jordan's main natural resource and most important industry. As the chart shows, Hussein's government owns 81.8% of the Jordan Phosphate Company. Jordan's other main industry is tourism. Hussein's government owns 85.7% of the Jor- dan Hotels and Tourism Co. The rest of the indus- trial sector is owned by multinationals. At the expense of the Jordanian people, Hussein passed the "Law for Encouragement of Foreign Capital Investment." This law provides attractive economic incentives for corporate class investors. (See ac- companying insert.) In the first five months fol- lowing Hussein's revision of this law (which coin- cided with the war in Lebanon), 40 American firms re- locatyd their Mideast regional headquarters to Jor- dan.ll - In Jordan the average cost of living index for all items has risen from 105.9 in 1970 to 204.7 in 1976. The average food index price level rose from 105.4 in 1970 to 277.8 in 1976.13 Furthermore, ac- cording to a 1977 report prepared by the U.S. Embassy in Jordan: "At the end of March Z977, the (overall) Index had increased almost 25% over the same month in 1976. Prospects for relief in the near future ap- pear dim." 4 - In 1974, workers in private and government civil establishments earned monthly wages ranging from 21 Jordanian Dianrs (JD) to 60 JD,15 At the 1973 ex- change rate of 1 JD to $3.11 (U.S.), the monthly wages ranged from $65.31 to a maximum of $186.60 per month. - For a 40-hour week, the average hourly wage ranges from $.40 to a maximum of $1.14 per hour. These are optimal hourly wages of Jordanian workers and much higher than those of agricultural workers who constitute 40% of the employment force. The exact wage figures are not available. The Jor- danian government refuses to publish them even in classified reports of the World Bank. (It is rea- sonable to assume from this refusal that hourly wages are extremely low,) The Jordan Times, one of Jordan's major newspapers, regularly features arti- cles promoting the benefits of tax credits and low workers' wages for foreign investors. According to a brochure of the Jordan Information Bureau, Jordan Business Center of the Mideast: "Jordanian workers are the envy of the region... High quality doesn't mean high cost in Jordan. Although Jordan has the highest quality labor force in the area, wage rates are much lower than in the neighboring oil-producing countries."16 Consequently, many Jordanian workers, approximately 250,000, have emigrated to the oil- rich peninsula where the wages are higher. Much of this earned income is sent back to their families in Jordan. The low wages paid to Jordanian workers contribute to higher profits for foreign and national investors, Because Jordan lacks key natural resources, low wages are essential to attracting foreign investment. In fact, Hussein's open-door policy toward foreign investors is preconditioned by low labor costs. The social consequences of Hussein's free trade policies are reflected in the wretched working conditions of the Jordanian people. CONTRADICTIONS The social structure of present day Jordan is characterized on the one hand, by a small ruling elite which controls the country's wealth, and on the other hand, by a large mass of impoverished peas- ants, urban workers and nomads. Wide-spread poverty, disease and illiteracy are reproduced daily under the existing relations of production in Jordan today. Within the international economy, Jordan is economi- cally and militarily dependent on the United States. Recent events in the Middle East region bring this dependence into a new light. Due to the war in Lebanon, many multinationals (over one hundred) have left Beirut - formerly the financial hub of the Middle East - and have re-estab- lished themselves in Amman, Jordan. This influx of foreign capital has radically transformed the eco- nomic foundation of the Jordanian economy. Between 1972-75, foreign investment income tripled.17 The Industrial Production Index of Principal Industries has markedly increased from 139.1 in 1972 to 219.3 in 1976,18 and the number of construction permits in- creased from 1,593 in 1972 to 3,663 in 1976.19 In the last two years the building industry has been the most dynamic sector in the Jordanian economy. The majority of the new houses and apartments are too expensive, however, for most Jordanian people.

It was reported in the Middle East International that, "the high rate of inflation which has accompa- nied Jordan's boom has pushed house prices way out of range of all but the richest sections of the community."20 New industrial plants and hotels are also rapidly being built. In the past year, a new $6 million floating berth was built at the Port of Aquaba, Jordan's only outlet to the sea, As well, a new railroad line was built which links Aquaba with Amman and Damascus. Finally, since 1975 private in- vestors have been establishing new industrial compa- nies in Jordan at the rate of 50 a year.21 There has been a systematic public relations cam- paign in the financial centers of the world to make Jordan an attractive outpost for foreign capital in the Middle East. For instance, Time magazine recent- ly printed a special report on Jordan. The report said in part: "A business center of the Arab World and situated at the crossroads of three con- tinents, Jordan is today's gateway to the world's fastest-growing regional market. Unique trade and investment opportunities as well as extraordinary business incen- Approved For Release 2010/06/03: CIA-RDP90-00845R000100150004-7 Approved For Release 2010/06/03: CIA-RDP90-00845R000100150004-7 Exemption from customs duties and all fees levied on imported goods including ma- chinery and all equipment needed in the construction of establishments. 2. Exemption from income and social security taxes for 3 years (increased to 6 years in 1975 and to 9 years for projects outside Amman) beginning on the date of production and reduction of taxes to the extent of 50% for the following 2 years. 3. Exemption of the buildings and grounds of new enterprises from property taxes for 3 years (increased to 5 years in 1975 and to 7 years for projects outside Amman) com- mencing on the date of production. tives abound in the Middle East's most free enterprise-oriented country." 22 It seems rather ironic that Jordan is now the "Mid- dle East's most free enterprise-oriented country." It was commonplace not too many years ago to consid- er Lebanon the free-enterprise gold mine in the Mid- dle East. Lebanon was for years a show-case for for- eign investment. Today Lebanon is torn apart by class struggle - a condition which Western invest- ment helped create. There are already signs of this in Jordan. The massive influx of foreign capital has created many new jobs and as a consequence the Jordanian working class has mushroomed in numbers. The Jor- danian workers are becoming more conscious of them- selves as a rising force in the Jordanian economy. An establishment publication, Who's Who in the Arab World 1974-75, has observed: "Increasing industri- alization is bringing changes in the relationship between employers and employees." Concrete proof of the direction of these changes in the relations of production has been occurring since 1974. Between 1974-76, despite repressive restrictions, members of the phosphate (Jordan's key industry), shoemaker, and dockworker (at Aquaba) unions have waged success- ful strikes against wage reductions. In this same Authorization to transfer from Jordan their annual profits in foreign exchange, and to repatriate it in the same foreign exchange in which it was introduced into the country. Government-owned land outside of Amman may be granted free of charge to approved projects. Companies locating their regional headquarters in Jordan receive 100% exemption on income and social security taxes on profits earned outside of Jordan. Foreign managers and employees of such companies are exempt from taxes on their sal- ary and other company-related income. 9. These same companies are allowed to open non-resident accounts whereby currency can be transferred in and out of their accounts with no restrictions. Limitation of taxes on net earnings of companies at the rate of 25% - this fixed rate of taxation is in violation of the graduated concept accepted by most nations. It should also be noted that 100% foreign ownership of local enterprises is allowed time period, workers in Jordan's cigarette company also carried out a successful strike against the stoppage of wages during official holidays. Hussein and the CIA/corporate class, in their drive for profits, do not pay the workers in Jordan even subsistence wages. Even the conservative, Mid- dle East International, disclosed that "the economic boom has benefitted the commercial and richer classes considerably more than the bulk of people.i23 More- over, Hussein's regime does not provide adequate so- cial services for the People of Jordan. As infla- tion and the cost of living continue to rise, class conflict becomes increasingly visible in all sectors of production. Even in the military there are signs of growing discontent. In May, 1977, more than 120 officers and non-commissioned personnel in the Jor- danian army unsuccessfully attempted to oust Hussein from power.24 This was the fifteenth assassination attempt on Hussein's life since he came to power. Without substantial structural changes, Hussein's regime will undoubtedly explode at the seams. Instead of supplying the needs of the Jordanian people with social services, Hussein and his clique allocate most of their annual budget for the police and defense. Between 1972-76, 51% of the Central Government's recurring expenditures were for I Approved For Release 2010/06/03: CIA-RDP90-00845R000100150004-7 Approved For Release 2010/06/03: CIA-RDP90-00845R000100150004-7 "Defense" and "Internal Order and Security."25 In terms of population, Hussein's army of 70,000 is the largest in the Middle East, (80,000 if the police are included.)26 Most of Hussein's repression tech- nology is used by Hussein's regime to curb all forms of dissent and protest. In addition, the media, the press and the labor unions are constantly suscepti- ble to harassment, infiltration and if necessary, brute force. It has been established, for instance, that the Union of Petroleum Workers and Employees, headed by Secretary-General Bhahi Hadi, is infil- trated by the CIA. Hussein's regime is a puppet regime air excellence. Propped up by the World Bank, American multination- als, loans from the Shah of Iran and the reactionary Arab regimes of Saudi Arabia and Kuwait - not to men- tion the CIA and direct American economic and mili- tary assistance - Jordan is the epitome of the neo- colonial state.

Secondly, " ..where an FSR does appear in the listing with a political job, it is most likely that the CIA is using the position for cover.i27 Philip Agee, who was a deep cover CIA agent for 12 years confirmed that, "In many countries, CIA personnel are found in the U.S. Embassy's 'Political Section.'28 Thirdly, Marks adds, "...there is another almost certain tip-off. If an agent is listed in the Bio- graphic Register as having been an 'analyst' for the Department of the Army (or Navy or Air Force), you can bet that he or she is really working for CIA."29 The following vitae are for known personnel in the U.S. Embassy in Amman, with the exception of Chesley H.

White House State Dinner. First National Bank of Chicago. TuZane University. Bechtel Corporation. Los Angeles World Affairs Council. His Excellency Abdul Salah (Jordanian Ambassador to U.S.): Washington Kiwanis Club. National Associ- ation of Arab Americans. The American Arab Asso- ciation of Commerce and Industry.

"Arranged and assisted at interview (sic) by NBC radio of Sami Gammo, Charge d'Affaires, Jordan Mis- sion to the U.N., July Z6, Z976. "Provided counseling for the Embassy (Jordanian/ U.S.) on the visit of King Hussein. "Prepared press kit for Jordanian Information Bu- reau (JIB) for three speeches by King Hussein." Doremus which has a 1977 contract for $807,000 with Jordan also arranged completely -- including writing his speeches -- for Hussein's visit to the U.S. in April, 1977. Doremus and Company created and controls an affil- iated holding company located in Vaduz, Lichtenstein named Doremus A.G. The directors of Doremus A.G. in- clude Francis J. Malley, G. Barry McMennamin, and Franklin E. Schaffer. All of these men are also di- rectors of Doremus and Company. Doremus A.G. is a "Lichtenstein corporation, limi- ted by shares which attempts to obtain advertising, public relations and other communications services contracts in the Middle East and elsewhere for Mid- dle Eastern clients. "Doremus and Company has an interest in Doremus A.G. and has assisted it in connection with certain aspects of its formation and organization, including giving advice as to the selection of outside audi- tors and counsel, the selection of offices in Swit- zerland, the form of its financial statements and assisting in the development of new businesses out- side the United states. "50% of the voting shares (which are entitled to 60% of all distributions and dividends) of Doremus A.G. are owned by Mrs. Samira M. Khashoggi, a Saudi Arabian national who is Chairman (sic) of Doremus A.G. Doremus and Company owns the remaining 50% of the voting shares (entitled to 40% of all distri- butions and dividends). Mrs. Khashoggi and Doremus and Company have each contributed Sfr. 200,000 as initial capital of Doremus A.G." MRS. SAMIRA KHASHOGGI 20, George V Paris 8eme France Payments to Doremus A.G. are in the form of "an irrevocable, transferable letter of credit in the name of Doremus A.G. at the Swiss Bank Corporation, Geneva, Switzerland." Thus, it provides Doremus and Company with secret Swiss numbered bank accounts (which the New York Times, 5/30/77, said "symbolize the industry's seamier side"). Being incorporated in Lichtenstein also allows Doremus A.G. to evade the Swiss withholding tax on dividends and interest payments and to escape Swiss exchange control laws. In addition to its personal catering of Hussein, Doemus conducts two major programs for the Jordanian government. Colonel John E. Horton wrote the propo- sals for both programs. One is the "Encouragement of Investment Program." To quote Horton: The Encouragement of Investment Program is perhaps the most topical of the program projects. The objective is to take advan- tage of the dramatic shift in economic pow- er and interest to the Arab world, the de- terioration of Lebanon as a regional commer- cial and financial center and the comparative business benefits which Jordan offers over its neighbors to convince U.S. and other Approved For Release 2010/06/03: CIA-RDP90-00845R000100150004-7 Approved For Release 2010/06/03: CIA-RDP90-00845R000100150004-7 western corporations to select Jordan as the most desirable site for regional representa- tion on industrial investment to serve re- gional markets. This is a valid opportunity. The promotion program in the U.S. is the coordinated counterpart of the Encouragement of Investment Law/Office and Program in Jordan. This proposal and its implementation are illustra- tions of the CIA's servicing, through Doremus, of the U.S. corporate class and its client regime. In the last two years, over 100 firms have trans- ferred their headquarters from Lebanon to Jordan, and Hussein is now attempting to retain them in Jor- dan. The second major program is the Jordan Information Bureau (JIB, 1701 K St., N,W., Suite 1000, Washing- ton, D.C.). Again, in Horton's words: The implementation of the proposed programs will require identified Washington office and staff under the recommended label of a Jordan Information Bureau. The office will be, in fact, an extension of Doremus and Com- pany and Connote and O'Connell under the principles of existing contracts. The legal and physical requirements for this office make it preferable to be operated under Doremus auspices and in space adjacent to Doremus premises (which is available on current option). JIB, through the auspices of Doremus and Connole and O'Connell, performs large-scale, multiple tasks in the interest of the U.S. corporate class and its client regime in Jordan. Included in these tasks are the following: 1) Publication and distribution of Jordan and Jor- dan Newsletter. Jordan is the in-flight magazine of ALIA (Jordan's airline owned, in part, by Hussein). Both magazines advertise and encourage investment and tourism. 2) Control and production of "news handlings, press conferences, press kits, and news releases" regard- ing Jordan and its "economic activity." 3) Insertion in the U.S. "print and broadcast media feature placements on a variety of stories of impor- tance to Jordan." 4) A media clipping service monitoring all publica- tions on Jordan; this would include anti-imperialist articles on Jordan, too. 5) Promotion of speaking engagements and world-wide film distribution which "compliment the economic de- velopment and/or tourism for Jordan in the U.S." 6) Development of "special publics whose business and cultural interests are currently oriented through the Mideast." This is done through Arab-American or- ganizations such as the American-Arab Association for Business and Industry; Arab-Americans Investor Group; and the Mideast Institute. "In addition, there is a multi-million population of Arab-Americans in the United States with whom appropriate communication methodology can be researched and instituted." 7) Briefing of U.S. travelers, particularly business- people, to and from Jordan. 8) Finally, through the auspices of CAMBRIDGE RE- PORTS, INC. (12-14 Mifflin Place, Cambridge, Ma., 02138), JIB and Doremus provide national public sur- veys which surveil, monitor, and analyze American tourists and investors, The imperialist objectives of the above-mentioned programs are obvious. At the same time, JIB provides a structure for standard intelligence operations. It controls, handles, and monitors all traffic between Jordan and the U.S. through its surveys and offices; and it monitors, interrogates, and briefs travelers to and from Jordan. It surveys and monitors Arab- Americans in the U.S. It plants features in the U.S. print and broadcast media. In Jordan, JIB exercises extensive control over the Jordanian print and broad- cast media such as "Radio Jordan: and the official "Jordan News Agency" headed by Director General Yusef Abu Leil. JIB's office in Amman serves as a "liaison with all government agencies. coordination with the Ministry of Culture and Information" (standard coordinator of intelligence operations); and "pro- vides Washington with news developments in Jordan... and will respond (sic) to pertinent news requests from Washington." Inside sources have confirmed that JIB is, in fact, a CIA/Jordanian intelligence operation. CIA person- nel involved with JIB include: John W. O'Connell, Colonel John E. Horton, Charles ("Chuck") R. Pucie, Jr.,and Stephen John McCarthy. As mentioned above, John C. Henry works out of the same office.
