Thomas Campbell Wasson, R. Gordon Wasson’s brother, found in CIA archives.
Thomas was the Consul General of the newly created Israel, founded on May 13, 1948. He was assassinated by Jews on May 23, 1948, only 3 days after this CIA file was written, and 10 days after Israel was founded.
Another document from the 4th of May, 1948:
May 13 is also the date that Gordon Wasson published his infamous “Seeking the Magic Mushroom” article in Life magazine, 1957.
As I wrote about Thomas Campbell Wasson in my article Gordon Wasson: The Man, The Legend, The Myth (Published May 13, 2012):
“Thomas C. Wasson
Robert Gordon Wasson had a brother: Thomas Campbell Wasson. Thomas was assassinated in Jerusalem by Jews while he served as the first Consul General of the new state of Israel, a position he had only begun a few weeks before he was assassinated. At 2 pm on May 22, 1948 he was shot with a .30 caliber rifle while he was approaching the U.S. Consulate. He died on May 23, 1948 – just ten days after the establishment of the State of Israel on May 13.
Thomas looked incredibly like R. G. Wasson, almost close enough to be twins. And interestingly, one writer even reported that it was Robert Wasson, and not Thomas Wasson, who had been killed:
Our American Consul, Mr. Robert Wasson was shot by Jews on Friday and died today.
~ Bertha Spafford Vesta, May 23, 1948
With all of the PR and false information put out by Wasson up to this point, I want to say that there is no evidence, at least at this moment, to show that there was some cover-up with the assassination, other than news reports initially trying to pin it on the Arabs. The confusion between Thomas and Robert seems to be just that – though I admit I’ve not looked into the matter any further.
Thomas had also served as the U.S. Vice Consul in Melbourne, Australia, as well as in Puerto Cortes, Honduras, and Consul in Lagos, Nigeria.
The main point is that Gordon Wasson had direct ties in his own family to high levels of the U.S. government and international politics – which may provide a lead for possible future research.”
As we see, this is now confirmed. As well, these documents show the level at which the CIA helped to create the new state of Israel, as well as using Zionism.
