... Nixon's Vietnam interventions through the Watergate period, seems only too relevant today, as we learn how much money had been channelled by Marcos into U.S. political campaigns over the last decade and a half. The thesis of "Transnationalised Repression" also seems only too relevant to U.S. politics in Nicaragua, as we learn of support for the Contras from first Argentina and Israel, and now allegedly from South Africa. The restrained optimism of the essay's conclusions, written in the first year of the Carter presidency, may sound a little odd after six years of Reagan. Support for drug-running criminals has moved from being the dark underside of U.S. foreign policy to (in the case ...

12. The CIA: A history of torture [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... their torturers were the CIA's own paid informants. Moreover, the Agency did its best to ensure that 'the torturers were shielded from any legal or political consequences.' Similarly, the covert war against Nicaragua involved a campaign of terror waged by CIA mercenaries that was nevertheless presented to the world as a liberation struggle. President Ronald Reagan celebrated 'the contras' as men in the same mould as the 'Founding Fathers' of the United States. This did not stop him trying to subvert the Constitution the Founding Fathers had drawn up in order to conduct his illegal war, something conveniently forgotten in the eulogies that accompanied his death. Moreover, as Greg Grandin writes of the contras: 'They ...

13. Sources [Lobster #33 (Summer 1997)]
... Next Issue 33 Sources Portland Free Press Portland Free Press, edited by Ace R. Hayes, with the legend 'Tell the Truth and Run' on its masthead, contains to produce important parapolitical material. The January/February issue had an extract from the 1991 deposition of Richard Brenneke, a pilot who claims to have flown missions for the Contras (which has not been seriously challenged) and to have been involved in the so-called 'October Surprise' events (which has). The part of the deposition reproduced by PFP alleges, as the subhead has it, 'Richard Brenneke puts mob boss John Gotti and CIA boss Donald Gregg in the middle of contra drug operations at Mena Airport ...

14. Print: Journals and book review [Lobster #17 (Nov 1988)]
... Ramsay Often referred to in other things is Israeli Foreign Affairs, 'an independent monthly report on Israel's diplomatic and military activities world-wide'. It is 8 pages A4 and though this is not a subject I am interested in, this looks very impressive and is thoroughly documented. September 1988 includes (using IFA's headlines) Jerusalem Christian 'embassy' aids Contras Israeli Help on New South African Aircraft Pentagon Sleaze Pipeline Sleaze etc etc. It's your basic parapolitics methodology (read and collate a hell of a lot) applied to Israel's foreign policy. It is one of the tragedies of the post-war years that Israel should have lined itself up with all the pariah states- perhaps an unavoidable fate given ...

... the first book that actually brings it all together in one place. The authors haven't exposed much that is new, instead they have taken all the previous stories and strung them together to make a damning indictment of the CIA. All your favourite stories are in here, from Gary Webb's breakthrough piece chronicling the links between the CIA; the Contras and the crack cocaine explosion in Los Angeles; through the CIA's use of psychedelics, ex-Nazi scientists and mind control, into the murky worlds of Indo-China; and then, via a chapter on Afghanistan, back to the United States and the cocaine connections to Arkansas and ex-prez Clinton. As the title implies, the role of the American ...

16. Terrorism: how the West can win (Book review) [Lobster #13 (Apr 1987)]
... global death total from alleged Soviet-sponsored terror would account for, say, 1 week's casualties in El Salvador. In attempting to distinguish between 'our' terror and 'terror' George Schultz actually says (p19): "it is not hard to tell... who are the terrorists and who are the freedom fighter.... the Contras in Nicaragua do not blow up school buses or hold mass executions of civilians." This is preposterous, of course. I can't be bothered doing it, but I'd bet a trawl through the press on the war in Nicaragua in the past three years would turn up examples of both- and worse- by the Contras.( ...

... to Carroll Quigley in this country.(5) The meaning of Mena? Another current source of conspiracy theories is the Clinton-Whitewater-Mena-drugs-coca ine-CIA-contra story. Are there Clinton buffs out there now following the Clinton scandals the way there are Kennedy buffs? Maybe one would get in touch and explain to me how much of it is true. Mena, Contras, drugs in and guns out, Barry Seal, Lasater, CIA- youthful Governor Clinton taking pay-offs to turn a blind eye to...That much seems to be true; some of it, anyway.(6) Most of the stuff I've seen is from the right with axes to grind and large appetites for recycling ...

... more or less likely to break the law than any other public bodies, they tell us. (Though how do they know?) All the tales of 'rogue elephants' told in the last twenty years are spurious. Their account of the CIA is wilfully inadequate, even for a three page summary. They describe the fund-ing of the Contras without mentioning drugs, even when the CIA itself has admitted getting permission from the US Attorney General to ignore cocaine dealing in return for donations to the Contras. You get the picture. The ISC has written eight reports since its inception, as well as its annual report to the Prime Minister. One of these, 'Economic Well-being' ...

... communism and shared the Reagan administration's view of the Soviet Union as 'the evil empire'. They thus became useful, minor foreign policy propaganda assets for the Reagan administration. Supporting any movement which was perceived as anti-socialist/communist, the FCS became cheerleaders for whichever bunch of murderous thugs happened to be getting support from Washington: Renamo and the Contras come to mind. About Mozambique or Nicaragua, they knew the best part of fuck-all; but they didn't need to: if X was fighting a socialist government, X deserved their support. The author tells us the FCS libertarians had wide overseas contacts but does not spell out the details beyond the much publicised jolly to hang-out with the ...

Five years after Eagleclaw, four of the then-retired military officers who helped plan it were back working with then-CIA Director Casey overseeing Reagan's Iran and Contra arms operations: Ret.
