21. Western Goals (UK) [Lobster #21 (May 1991)]
... down by the Soviet Union. His widow subsequently formed the Larry McDonald Memorial Foundation to fund and encourage right-wing organisations. By 1985 the Western Goals Foundation was a well established member of the American radical right, and it is also said to have established a West German subsiduary. (10) It was an important independent fund-raising mechanism for the Contras in Nicaragua and had produced a number of pro-Contra TV ads. From the start it had particularly strong ties (through McDonald and Singlaub) with the Conservative Action Group and also (through Singlaub) with the World Anti-Communist League and its numerous affiliates. (11) In May 1985 Linda Guell came over to Britain to organise and launch ...

... Secondly, there are logical shortcomings in the theory that KINTEX smuggling was part of a master anti-Western plot. Aside from the evidentiary difficulties shortly to be discussed, KINTEX apparently arranged to sell weapons secretly to several anti-communist states and groups, including the South African government, (227) right-wing Christian Falangists in Lebanon, (228) the Nicaraguan contra forces, (229) and Turkish rightists. (230) Even if the latter can be said to support Soviet destabilisation operations merely by facilitating internal violence in Turkey, (231) sales to the other others definitely do not square with East Bloc political interests. This suggests that a primary motivation for Bulgarian participation in illegal trafficking in ...

... great alarm. Early in the Reagan presidency the US ambassador to Ireland, Peter Dailey, was recalled to co-ordinate both governmental and private initiatives to roll back the growing European opposition to the revived Cold War of which developments in the British Labour party and trade union movement were an important part. Documents declassified during the Congressional inquiry into the Iran Contra scandal, for example, describe a White House meeting at which President Reagan, along with senior intelligence officials, met Rupert Murdoch, Sir James Goldsmith, George Gallup and Joachim Maitre of the Springer publishing group, to discuss ways in which support for the Atlantic alliance could be bolstered. In this context- one Walden describes with characteristic ...

... set about checking which. To do so would certainly require a great deal of money and time to run round the United States checking Martin's astonishing allegations. Martin tells us that virtually all the Iran-Contra fund-raising operations in the US were either designed as frauds or were exploited as frauds; that what began as an attempt to raise money for the Contras pretty quickly developed into a vast series of scams in which- as usual- the US tax-payer got royally screwed. These aren't vague generalisations; he names the fraudsters, from the vice President George Bush downwards, through the known Iran-Contra players, many others unknown to me, into the intelligence services, the justice system, the courts ...

25. Drugs, oil and war (Book Review) [Lobster #46 (Winter 2003)]
... 'American foreign policy' not at all. It is also very simply and clearly written. Here's another section two pages later. 'This apparent digression into trails leading from covert operations to political influence, and ultimately to drug airlines and mob-controlled banks, is the story that I first explored in The War Conspiracy and again (with respect to the Contras) in Cocaine Politics....essentially the same lobbies and their milieus, with oil prominent at the overt level and mob and drug links at the deeper covert level, play recurring roles.' Twenty pages later he gives us the book's major theme: 'In the half century since the Korean War the United States has been involved in ...

26. More Notes on the Right [Lobster #13 (Apr 1987)]
... impossible to evaluate. I presume it varies from country to country: in Britain, hardly at all; in the U.S...every once in a while there are hints that the lines between WACL and the CIA, for example, are virtually non-existent. Item: WACL's role as the public 'cover' for CIA funding of the Contras. Item: reports that WACL's General John Singlaub and WACL supporter, ex-DDCIA, Ray Cline accompanied Manila CIA station chief and the CIA's General Sweitzer on a visit to messers Enrile and Ramos, just before the abortive coup against Mrs Aquino's government. One need not jump to conclusions: the Americans may have been trying to call the coup ...

27. Articles [Lobster #13 (Apr 1987)]
... interesting companion piece to pp2/3 of the P.D. Scott essay in Lobster 12. Anslinger was the primary originator of the basic US foreign policy move of accusing your enemies of running drugs into the otherwise innocent bodies of the US citizenry (China, Cuba, Nicaragua), while allowing your political allies (KMT, anti-Castro Cubans, Contras) to fund-raise by dope-dealing. This essay focuses on Anslinger as manipulator of Congress, media and the American public, rather than the content of his anti-communist bullshit or his acquiescence in drug-running into the US by the KMT. US cover-up of Nazi scientists Linda Hunt in Bulletin of Atomic Scientists April 1985 Very important, immaculately researched piece documenting ...

28. Briefly [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... entirely about the making of his films, the fact that his politics are radical gives this a quite different feel from other film memoirs which mostly eschew politics. Cox is a political animal and his (left) radical political views run through this. He made his film 'Walker' (which I haven't seen) in Nicaragua while the US-supported contras were attacking the country. But the politics are mostly part of the background and the occasional aside. This is centrally about his becoming a filmmaker and the processes involved in making films, from the ground up: fundraising, casting, location-scouting, script-writing, directing, dealing with actors, editing the whole intricate bag of tricks, and ...

... in the wake of 9/11 but tracing it back to its roots in the Carter administration's support for Afghan resistance to the Soviet invas-ion. The simple point, that the US and Britain now find themselves just as mired in that country as the Russians did three decades ago, barely needs to be stated. That the architects of Iran Contra, an earlier alliance of 'creative destruction', in the brilliant terms of neo-con apparatchick Michael Ledeen, should be setting the agenda for the second President Bush came as no surprise; that there was such a continuum through the Clinton years per-haps should. Depending now on a Sunni 'arc of moderation' has simply inflamed the area further, ...

30. Print: Magazines and Catalogues [Lobster #18 (Oct 1989)]
... Research would be much appreciated. The Keys of Peter is the 'bimonthly paper faithful to the authentic teaching of the Church'. Every once in a while it includes something of interest to us. In issue 129, for example, there is a long account of, and attack on, Catholic groups which support the Nicaraguan government against the contras; issue Sept/Oct 1989 is entirely devoted to Austrian opposition to Hitler, and begins, 'The Masonic peace of 1919' (!) KOP is 4.00 per year, from 157 Vicarage road, London E10 5DU. KOP also has an interesting, if somewhat cranky mail-order catalogue. Briarpatch is a radical magazine from Saskatchewan, Canada ...
