As a fall-back, the ADL has also said that "there is no real evidence of [Albert] Pike's role in the Klan; and even if there is such evidence, the issue is not important."

The rebellion of the Southern slave-owners, which brought on the Civil War, was a British Empire-sponsored insurrection. The British supplied the arms used by the anti-U.S. insurgents, and coordinated the Confederate secret service activities in North America and Europe. These expanded efforts continued the political and irregular military operations of the Scottish Rite which had been led by Quitman, and by Pike after Quitman’s death.
