... . Henry Kissinger was Bush's first choice to chair it, but he quickly stepped down after complaints from victims' families about his suitability and likely conflict of interests. In his place Bush appointed Republican former governor of New Jersey Thomas Kean with Democrat former Congressman Lee Hamilton as his deputy. Hamilton had previously co-chaired the Joint Congressional Inquiry into Iran Contra. The crucial appointment as executive director was Republican academic Philip Zelikow, co-author of a book a few years earlier with his friend and Bush National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice. When victims' families uncovered this and other parts of his history they unsuccessfully sought his resignation. Subsequent to his report's publication in 2004 Zelikow went to work for the ...

... officials (both police and military) who were viciously repressing the Tamil people.2 1 In the late 1980s, KMS had a couple of problems. The first became quite a personal embarrassment for Major Walker, as he was linked to Oliver North's highly questionable activities in Central America. Walker had allowed KMS to provide arms and general assistance to the Contras, as well as some rather harsh 'hands-on' assistance in the Nicaraguan capital, Managua.2 2 The media attention that this episode received prompted Walker and his colleague Jim Johnson to pass the management responsibility for KMS to two other ex- SAS men, Lieutenant Colonel Keith Farnes and Major Brian Baty.2 3 Major Baty had previously come to the public's ...

... deliberately being kept out of the spotlight is George W Bush's close personal friendship with Prince Bandar, so close that the President would refer to him as 'Bandar Bush'. Bandar has been a friend of the Bush family ever since working with George HW Bush during the Reagan administration, when Bandar ended up as the middle-man in paying the Nicaraguan contras. Prince Bandar has in fact been in and out of the shadows around various 'deep events' ever since, and his covert CV is a lengthy one.2 8 The fact that the newly-released pages do not shed any light on the glaring Jeb Bush/Florida connection (discussed in this column in Lobster 69 2 9) overwhelmingly suggests that ...

... total blackout could have occurred, and as a result the police were able to force though their own version of events. In such cases, lack of evidence is often more a pretext for quietism than a genuinely insurmountable impasse. To follow Hewson's lead in using civil litigation as a model, one might reflect on the legal maxim omnia praesumuntur contra spoliatorem literally 'all things are presumed against the destroyer of evidence'. When evidence is missing, we should not simply hand the benefit of the doubt to the person or body who disposed of it. To do so is not only to ignore an important piece of circumstantial evidence, but to follow a policy which rewards cover-ups. ...

... or better) than that. In 1982 the Agency actually went to the Attorney General of the United States to get his permission to ignore drug dealing. In effect the CIA, with government permission, gave cocaine dealers in Central and South America a 'get out of jail free' card: for a few thousand dollars of support for the contras they could fly their product in unhindered. And so the guns out and drugs back pattern began. Iran-Contra is frequently short-handed as weapons- for-hostages. More significantly it was guns-for-coke. The MJ-12 theories about alien-government contact are presented but she forbears to tell her readers that the whole thing was cooked-up by the US Air Force. Rather than ...

The Agency's internal history of Gary Webb's infamous 1996 'Dark Alliance' story that exposed CIA complicity in the Contras' cocaine smuggling shenanigans was entitled 'Managing a Nightmare' but appears to suggest that CIA did no management at all.15 The CIA's historian refers to the way in which 'a ground base of established relations with reporters and the Director of Central Intelligence's (DCI) Public Affairs Staff (PAS) helped prevent this story [i.e. Webb's] ...

Gary Webb and his stories about the CIA, the Contras and cocaine the dark alliance as he called it in the San Jose Mercury News in 1996, illustrated what can happen when you leave the reservation. Despite the fact that Webb's stories about the CIA allowing cocaine trafficking into the US in exchange for funding for the Contras were true, Webb and the paper were attacked by many ...
