The plan was to mount a propaganda campaign to persuade the Vietnamese people in the south not to vote for the communists in the forthcoming elections.Robert Anderson and CIA agent Paul Helliwell set up these black gold accounts "providing money for political action funds throughout the noncommunist world." Promoted to the rank of major Lansdale was appointed Chief of the Intelligence Division in the Philippines.His main task was to rebuild the country's security services.
In the early 1950s, Allen Dulles gave Lansdale -million to finance CIA operations against the Hukbalahap movement, the rural peasant farmers fighting for land-reform in the Philippines.
According to Sterling Seagrave Lansdale "was in and out of Tokyo on secret missions with a hand-picked team of Filipino assassins, assassinating leftists, liberals and progressives." CIA Director William Colby later commented: "Lansdale helped and perhaps created the best president the Philippines ever had...turned American policy away from support of French colonial rule in Vietnam to support of a non-Communist nationalist leader..preached for Americans to support those willing to fight for themselves... the stuff of legends." In 1953 Lansdale was sent to Vietnam to advise the French in their struggle with the Vietminh.
As Seagrave explains: "Since Yamashita had arrived from Manchuria in October 1944 to take over the defense of the Philippines, Kojima had driven him everywhere." In charge of Kojima’s torture was an intelligence officer named Severino Garcia Diaz Santa Romana (Santy).
He wanted Major Kojima to reveal each place to which he had taken General Tomoyuki Yamashita, where bullion and other treasure were hidden." Ray Cline argues that between 19 the gold bullion recovered by Santy and Lansdale was moved by ship to 176 accounts at banks in 42 countries.
On his return to the United States in 1948 Lansdale became a lecturer at the Strategic Intelligence School in Colorado.However, in 1950, Elpidio Quirino, the president of the Philippines, requested Lansdale's help in his fight against the communist insurrection taking place in his country.
