To bardzo przykre ze Kuklinskiego zegnamy w takiej ciszy!
Kuklinski byl jednym z nielicznych prawdziwych POLSKICH patriotow
zdradzonych po przez zdrajcow Polski takich jak Jaruzelski czy Kania!
"When Kuklinski acknowledged his CIA association for the first time in 1992, he
"In the beginning I asked myself if I had a moral right to do this [supply
military secrets to CIA].
I was a Pole.
I understood that Poles should be free and that the United States was the only
country that might support the fight for freedom for Poland."
He chose cooperation with US intelligence work as a form of resistance. On
several occasions, he referred to a group of pro-Western officers who wanted to
make contact with the West.
They were prepared to sabotage the Soviet war machine in the event of a Warsaw
Kuklinski’s US contacts discouraged this plan as too dangerous. But this only
inspired him to find another form of anti-Soviet opposition.
"The conspiracy that was organized within a small group of commanding officers
in the Army became my directive.""
The information Kuklinski provided to CIA remains classified, but he has
revealed the most important details in a series of interviews. Even General
Czeslaw Kiszczak, the former minister of internal affairs who supervised the
official damage assessment, acknowledged: "When we started to analyze the range
of information he had got hold of, we realized that he knew so much there was
no point in changing anything (in Polish military plans) because we would have
had to change virtually everything."37 Highlights of these interviews include:38
• Soviet war plans: Kuklinski outlined the Soviet game plan for waging an
offensive war against NATO.
• Wartime command and control arrangements: Kuklinski revealed that, in
wartime, the national armies of the Warsaw Pact (with the exception of Romania)
would come under direct Soviet operational control. Polish commanders would
have been reduced to the status of liaison and logistics officers taking orders
from Soviet superiors.
• Warning of war: Warsaw Pact planning documents and military exercises yielded
insight into how the Soviets would mobilize for war. Kuklinski’s
information "allowed us to develop an intimate understanding of the way they
worked. It was invaluable for warning," according to a US strategic expert.39
• Project Albatross: Kuklinski had knowledge of three highly secret, deep
underground bunkers the Soviets had constructed in Poland, the USSR, and
Bulgaria for wartime command and control. He identified the exact location,
construction, and communications systems used for the Polish complex. According
to President Carter’s National Security Adviser, Dr. Zbigniew
Brzezinski, "Kuklinski’s information permitted us to make counterplans to
disrupt command-and-control facilities rather than only relying on a massive
counterattack on forward positions, which would have hit Poland."40
• Information on some 200 advanced weapon systems and a manual on electronic
warfare: Kuklinski also alerted US intelligence to a massive Soviet denial and
deception program, highlighting the use of dummies and decoys to foil US
"The First Polish Officer in NATO"
In September and December 1992, Benjamin Weiser, then a staff writer for The
Washington Post, published a two-part series on Kuklinski’s life based on more
than 70 hours of conversation.41 The September article created a sensation in
Poland, where state television and all the major dailies gave it extensive
The Warsaw correspondent for Moscow News was not exaggerating when he said
that "the Kuklinski case is becoming yet another factor tending to divide the
already fragmented political scene [in Poland]."42 Poles learned for the first
time that Kuklinski had worked with US intelligence for more than a decade
before defecting in 1981.
(In the 1987 Kultura interview, Kuklinski had limited his remarks to the
Polish crisis of 1980-1981.) "I think I have to unveil what I have done,"
Kuklinski told Weiser. "Let’s judge on the basis of what I have done." This was
an opening bid in an effort to have the legal case against him dropped.
In early 1990, Poland’s supreme court, acting under a December 1989 amnesty
law, commuted Kuklinski’s death sentence to 25 years in prison and loss of
civil rights. (The court let stand the forfeiture of property, even though the
law had been erased from the post-Communist criminal code.)
Two days after the Post article, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, head of the center-right
Center Alliance Party, sent a letter to President Walesa, challenging him to
pardon Kuklinski or state publicly why he would not do so.
Walesa, in a statement to the leftist daily Gazeta Wyborcza, replied: "It is a
complicated issue: on the one hand, one can admire the colonel for his courage;
on the other hand, the story still has some white spots which are waiting to be
explained. History will pass the final verdict…."
This buck-passing would continue for another five years.
Dr. Brzezinski was Kuklinski’s earliest and ultimately his most effective
champion. (He coined the phrase "the first Polish officer in NATO," which
became the rallying cry for Kuklinski’s exoneration.)
In a letter to Walesa, he cited Kuklinski’s role in heading off Soviet
intervention in 1980. "Such things should not be considered treason," he told a
Polish television interviewer. "I believe it is high time to acknowledge that
Kuklinski served Poland well."
Powinien byc pochowany z najwyzszymi HONORAMI WOJSKOWYMI z wybudowanym
pomnikiem za obrone Polski przeciwko zdrajcom komunistycznym.
