LaRouche in Vietnam
In 1977 WerBell went to work providing security for Lyndon LaRouche, leader of a right-wing (formerly left-wing) movement called the National Caucus of Labor Committees (NCLC). Major General John K. Singlaub, who retired from the Army in 1978, met with two of LaRouche’s party officials in WerBell’s home, and said that he found them to be “a bunch of kooks of the worst form.” They suggested, he claimed, that “the military ought to in some way lead the country out of its problems," implying a coup d'etat. Nevertheless Singlaub, who founded the anti-Communist U.S. Council for World Freedom in 1981, returned to Powder Springs in 1982 to lecture at Sionics, originally WerBell's arms company with Ingram, and now a counter-terrorist training camp run by WerBell. (Sionics was an acronym for Studies in Organized Negation of Insurgency and Counter Subversion.) At that time LaRouche's security forces comprised many of WerBell's trainees.
