french?? heroinexporter Etienne Tarditi arrested in NY
Etienne Tarditi's job in the 1950s was twofold: on behalf of his underworld sponsors, he purchased morphine base in Lebanon and smuggled it to France, where it was converted into heroin; then he "recruited" diplomats to smuggle the heroin to Mafiosi in America. Tarditi's operation began to unravel, however, in mid-1960, when a rival drug smuggler told the FBN Agent in Beirut that a diplomat named "Maurice" was carrying heroin to America. The ensuing investigation revealed that the diplomat, whose luggage was passed through U.S. Customs without being checked, was Maurice Rosal Bron, Guatemala's Ambassador to the Netherlands. Rosal, it was discovered, had an unrestrained sexual desire for young boys-a fatal flaw which Tarditi used to blackmail the dapper diplomat into carrying heroin to America. Further investigation revealed that Rosal made frequent trips to America, often with Tarditi, and that he always left with less baggage weight than when he arrived. The investigation itself climaxed in October 1960 in New York City, when FBN agents busted Rosal, Tarditi, TWA purser Charles Bourbonnais, and Nick Calamaris of the Gambino Mafia family. Rosal was arrested Oct. 3, 1960; an article appeared on the front page of the Daily News on Oct. 4. The bust netted 100 kilograms of pure heroin, and the intelligence take provided the FBN with enough leads to keep it busy for the next five years. Most of the information, notably, came from Tarditi, who identified his sources in France, and claimed that he "was involved in intelligence work beneficial to American interests." Tarditi would also, after 18 months of steady interrogation, implicate labor leader Irving Brown in drug smuggling activities.

A few years before we'd found the same address (to the apartment where Jehan was staying in New York City) in the possession of Marcel Francisi; so we got a search warrant and went in. It was a beautiful place, owned by an executive of Michelin Tire. So we had to back out." "Think about it," Waters adds.

The OAS was known to be financing its operations through the drug trade, and, being "a good soldier," Christman "took a small fall to protect her bosses"- who in return continued to receive CIA support. In addition to Christman's quiet and quick release, the FBN agent stationed in Paris was told not to investigate the mysterious "Mr. Mueller."
