|( 1970s: ) 1976|
|Peter Dale Scott names 1976 as a particularly crucial year for the US deep state, as under increasing pressure and investigation from democratic forces inside the USA, they regrouped from the CIA into a more flexible structure centered on the Safari Club. This laid the groundwork for the supranational deep state.|
1976 saw the first meeting of the Safari Club, a metastatisation of the deep state as it regrouped outside the formal institutions of the USA government, where it was being subjected to increased scrutiny.
Orlando Letelier was assassinated in Washington's 'Embassy Row', in a CIA-backed plot operated through CIA assets Manuel Contreras (Chilean spymaster) and Michael Townley. The CIA used Operation Mockingbird assets to leak a fake CIA report designed to throw the FBI off the scent. John Stockwell reports that George H. W. Bush personally requested the DOJ to soft pedal their investigation of the crime.
The 1976 Bilderberg meeting was canceled after Prince Bernhard's role in receiving a $1.1 million bribe became public as the Lockheed/Bribery scandals drew public attention. It is the only time the meeting has been canceled.

Deep state interests blossomed in the climate of fear and paranoia.|
