UK, September 1, (Pal Telegraph – By Peter Eyre) A private investigator by the name of Gordon Bowden has found an awful lot of mud at this luxurious address that backs onto the the Ritz Hotel in London.
One could wonder how such a noble person as Ambassador Frances D. Cook managed to be named in this article. She is shown as a Non-executive Director
of Arlington Associates at the above address.
The company prides itself with the following statement:
Arlington Associates assists companies, governments and commercial organisations with strategic advice and services looking to make the most of international opportunities by reducing risk. We create effective ways of overcoming the security threats and challenges that can have a negative effect on potential success.
However, I don’t think Gordon Bowden would agree with them.
Frances D. Cook was a very senior figure in the US Government and perhaps, according to Gordon, may have given her some leverage in establishing her own private business interests.
As an example, we all know how lucrative the munitions business has become and our dear lady just so happens to be a Director of Alliant Techsystems Inc. (ATK), a major supplier to the US Military, with viable export markets. This same company is also responsible for the manufacturing of weapons that contain uranium components that continue to contaminate our world with radiation. This astute 63 year old lady has been Chair of the Ballard Group LLC, an international business consulting firm, since 1999. Prior to that she served with the U.S. State Department for 30 years in various postings in the United States and abroad, including serving as Ambassador or chief of a diplomatic post four times, and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State twice. She is also a Director of Lonrho Plc.
Here is the timeline for Ambassador Cook’s illustrious career:

Of late we have seen much publicity about the three missing nukes that Britain purchased illegally from the Government of South Africa (that were later stolen by John Bredenkamp, after he sold them), the involvement of Maggie Thatcher, our current PM and other senior members of Parliament in both the Conservative Party and the Labour Party, Dr. David Kelly’s death, illegal arms dealing, theft of UK tax payers money. Naturally we would have to add to this list the collapse of the world’s banking system.
Gordon Bowdon continues to pursue “shonky” [of poor or dubious quality] directors and false companies, because he believes that if the British Government had taken steps earlier, this collapse may not have been so severe and certainly with the information he has on hand, would safeguard the banking system of the United Kingdom and at the same time protect those investors who have lost and continue to lose everything to these sharks.
This extremely brave man has launched himself into a paper trail of lies and deceit that is part and parcel of the banking, financial, oil, gas, and mining sectors around the world. If one can imagine being conned into parting with vast sums of money to invest in a non existent company, non existent oil drilling programme, non existent mine site or open pit mining location etc. Can you imagine that the mine you have invested in could simply be just a spade hole in the ground in some far away place?
I think it would be appropriate for you to see the communications that are currently flowing between Gordon and the British Attorney General’s Office to give you some idea of the scope of his findings. This may appear a little confusing to some people but for those involved in the banking/financial sectors, or those that invest, it will become very clear. Gordon has gone to great lengths to not only link these scams at a forensic level but has also duplicated his findings to other third parties for safe keeping.
Here’s a list of the Directors of Arlington Associates and their background as per their current web site: http://www.arlingtonassociates.com/personality.html
It will become evident, after you have read this article, that there are some very serious questions to be asked of this company and many others that Gordon has investigated. The problem is that the level of corruption and deceit is so deep it would entail setting up a separate police corporate fraud squad just to deal with this group alone. The Arlington Associates Directors are:
Chairman and CEO
Aldwin J G Wight
OBE MC WO
A former Commanding Officer of the Special Air Service (SAS) and Commander of the Sultan’s Special Force, Oman, Aldwin was previously Deputy CEO of Kroll Security Group and Chairman and CEO of Arturus Limited.
Chief Operating Officer
A former Squadron Commander of the Special Air Service (SAS) and Military Assistant to the Chief of Defence Staff, Mark was previously Director of Strategic Planning in the MOD and a Senior Security Consultant in Kroll Security Group.
Frances D. Cook
A former U.S. Ambassador to Burundi, Cameroon, and to the Sultanate of Oman, Frances has also held numerous senior positions in the US Department of State. She has worked in the private sector since 1999.
CEO of Lonrho
Geoffrey has had 25 years of commercial management including senior roles with Thomas Tilling Plc, BTR Plc, and Dee Corporation Plc, and has worked for the private offices of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Al Thani.
Before moving on Gordon wanted to point out the following:
Regarding Ambassador Frances D. Cook – 22 Arlington Street, London SW1A 1RD - and the 4 VIP Directors of Arlington Associated Ltd. please note:
In the last 3 months, the bio of Ambassador Frances D. Cook has been removed from the web site format of ALLIANT TECHSYSTEMS CORP. (ATK) Board of Directors. Gordon has many copies of those containing her reference. In his own words “’Bit like trying to shut the door after the horse has bolted.”
Ambassador Frances D. Cook will prove to be instrumental in unravelling a complex international network which will open a massive can of worms and a lot more sinister past historic references.
The IRAN / CONTRA and BAE Bribe Scandal Affair will be not only trivial, you will see, it will be directly associated to the front operations and all those interlinked at 22 Arlington Street, London.

It should also be noted that the notorious John Bredenkamp operates with Billy Rautenbach and Nicoshefer (a convicted international bank fraudster) whose partners include Charles Taylor (Ex President of Liberia) currently on trial for war crimes and his dealings in blood diamonds used to purchase weapons and munitions to fuel conflicts all over Africa.
Bredenkamp provided logistical support (including aircraft), reported by the United Nations as aiding and assisting Oryx Natural Resources and its Directors in covert operations and blood diamond dealings. Bredenkamp was fully supported by network operations out of 22 Arlington Street, London. In June of this year, this address was raided by men in suits wearing dark glasses purportedly to investigate the dealings of Lonrho Plc, its group, and its Directors which include David Anthony Lenigas, Geoffrey White, Emma Priestley, Donald Strang and Ambassador Frances D. Cook. All of these activities have resulted in evil bloody conflicts throughout the African continent seemingly with the tacit support of past and current British and US Governments, Bankers and Financial Institutions including JP Morgan, who employ Mr. Tony Blair at 22 Arlington Street.
The implications are that all of this has been going on since the reign of the “Iron Lady,” Maggie Thatcher, and who else was involved is surely a case to answer. It is evidently clear that the level of deceit and corruption with the added illegal arms dealing could well have seen the collapse of both parties at the time, and maybe even to this day. It was Tony Blair himself that created the Nuclear Explosions Act (1998), and under the terms of this act there are many very senior past and current politicians that could end their days in prison. We must also remember the ex boss of Astra who was also implicated in the nuke deal, namely Stepahnus Adolphus Kock, who had high level political connections to Thatcher, Heseltine, Younger, Hanley, etc. as well as MI5 and MI6 connections. It appears clear that he was involved in the murder of Dr. Gerald Bull in Brussels, on 22nd March, 1990 and Jonathan Moyle in Santiago, Chile, on 31st March, 1990. I would rather change the word “murder” to “assassination”!
It would not be right if I omitted to include some events that are currently going on, one being the arrest and return to the UK of Asil Nadir from Cyprus. Maybe you would ask how he can be implicated in this story. The answer to that must go back to the Butler Review which was to the “Review of Intelligence on Weapons of Mass Destruction.” The members of this review were:
Lord Butler of Brockwell KG GCB CVO (Chairman);
Sir John Chilcot GCB;
Field Marshal the Lord Inge KG GCB DL;
Michael Mates MP;
Ann Taylor MP.
It was Michael Mates who was a Conservative Party Politician (MP for East Hampshire 1974-2010), and who was also Minister of State at the Northern Ireland Office (1992-1993), who was forced to resign after a scandal involving his links to fugitive businessman Asil Nadir. It may well turn out that Asil Nadir has much information under his belt regarding the missing nukes and relevant paper trails.
We also have the past case of ex GCHQ worker Katharine Gun, who was facing jail for exposing American corruption in the run-up to war on Saddam. Gun worked at the very secretive facility - Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) - in Cheltenham. Many believe that it should have been Bush and Blair in the dock and not Katherine.
Gun had a hoist of supporters in the US - Hollywood actor-director Sean Penn - and senior figures from the US media and civil rights movement, including the Reverend Jesse Jackson. To summarize her ordeal, it was well worded in the Guardian who wrote:
She is accused of breaching the Official Secrets Act by allegedly leaking details of a secret US 'dirty tricks' operation to spy on UN Security Council members in the run-up to war in Iraq last year. If found guilty, she faces two years in prison. She is an unlikely heroine and those who have met her say she would have been happy to remain in the shadows, had she not seen evidence in black and white that her Government was being asked to co-operate in an illegal operation.
I guess we should also add to the list that of Lord Haseltine who made vast sums of money during the period of the missing nukes and illegal arms dealings etc. Another name that was bounced around at the time was that of Jonathan Aitken who was a former MP and senior political figure in the Conservative Party. This gentlemen was also apparently implicated in the illegal arms dealing fiasco etc.
It is so hard to be able to calculate just how much hard earned tax payer’s money was diverted during the illegal purchase of the three South African nukes, but some estimate a figure of around £700 million. We also have to remember that £17.8 million returned to the UK via the back door and was handed over to the Conservative Party Election Fund, which to this day has not been accounted for. Let’s not also forget the meager sum of £1 million that ended up in the care of Mr. Blair. Naturally Blair comes out clean in all of these inquiries and grime.
Tony Blair’s book will be launched on Wednesday, September 1, but he will not be in attendance as he will be having a private dinner with Obama and Netanyahu in the build up to the next round of peace talks. Now maybe you are all beginning to see how false and corrupt the world has become.
One must fully appreciate that millions of people have died as a direct result of the British and US Governments involvement in all of the above, as well as taking hard earned tax payer’s money for their own usage, or as a donation to their respective parties.
What is sad is we now see that as a result of their corrupt mismanagement, the British taxpayers have to foot the bill…..with the poor once again being hit in the pocket whilst the corrupt wallow in their blood money. It is also a known fact that such greed induces terrorism, and both greed and terrorism create poverty.
One really does need to challenge the location of the “Axis of Evil” and it becomes clear that 22 Arlington Street in London would be a good starting point.
I have just received another ‘stop press’ addition to this story that reveals the working of the ex boss of the Department of Trade and Industry(DTI), Peter Lilley MP, who was also implicated in the missing nukes deal. Gordon Bowden has furnished the following concerning Peter Lilley MP which I will add here:
