CIA and ASC-backed death squads in El Salvador also in part backfired in the extreme violence used by the Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) gang in the U.S.

George Keegan."
- Hand written note of Alan Foringer, administrative CIA head in Manila, to Robert Curtis. Both were after buried Japanese war loot (gold) on the Philippines. Graham and Singlaub were leading members of the ASC, with Keegan also being close. (photocopy - Seagrave’s ’Gold Warriors’ CD’s)
