21. Terrorism: how the West can win (Book review) [Lobster #13 (Apr 1987)]
... 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.( ...

... 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 ...

... of it. To the surprise of no-one who had read, say, Alfred McKoy's The Politics of Heroin in South East Asia, exactly the same thing happened, for exactly the same reasons, when the Reagan administration set about destroying the Sandinista regime. It was simplicity itself: planes flew from America carrying supplies for the CIA's contra army camped along the Nicaraguan border, and flew back to America carrying cocaine. The authors note in their preface to this second edition, 'Our conclusion remains that the first target of an effective drug strategy should be Washington itself, and specifically its own connections with corrupt, drug-linked forces in other parts of the world. ' ...

... 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- ...

... it onto the agendum. There is nothing in the literature remotely resembling the scale and complexity of what the MIHOP theorists are suggesting. To their credit the authors face this problem and describe how they think various LIHOP and MIHOP plots might function. They point out that big plots can go undetected and they cite Oliver North and the Iran-Contra affair. But are the two things comparable? Iran-Contra merely used for the state's interest some activities smuggling and money-laundering, essen-ially which existed already and with which the clandestine services of the US state were familiar. But a 9-11 conspiracy, especially any variant of the MIHOP conspiracy, is on a ...

... diplomacy' is a 1980s euphemism for disinformation and psychological warfare. Morgan found that 'The same story was also being pushed by what the Pentagon correspondent of the U.S . television network ABC called 'reliable CIA sources'. ' Few disinformation stories can be traced back to their sources, but in this instance Morgan got close. The former contra leader, Edgar Chamorro, told her that just before the bombing 'he had been handed a number of posters by CIA sponsors and ordered to display them. They bore the letters ETA and a gun superimposed on a map of Central America. ' Chamorro said 'At the time I didn't understand the purpose of the posters.... ...

... 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 ...

... published in the San Jose Mercury News which claimed that cocaine being consumed in black areas of cities in California was being brought in by a network linked to the CIA via the war against Nicaragua. Quite why the Mercury stories created a storm and this book did not remains a mystery to me, for there is infinitely more evidence of the contra-CIA-cocaine link in here than Gary Webb offered in his San Jose Mercury News stories, admirable though they were; and the contra connection is just one of the many areas in which the CIA has tolerated or taken part in drug trafficking documented in this devasting assault on US foreign policy. The earlier edition was published in ...

... 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 ...

... (6 ) It was later established that Swarup had passed 48,000 rupees from American sources to one of the defence attorneys in the Indira Gandhi assassination trial, and then flew to Geneva where he met Felix Ermacore, UN Human Rights committee member responsible for Afghanistan. Ermacore, an Austrian Member of Parliament, has extensive links to Nicaraguan Contra propaganda groups and right-wing organisations such as IGFM (right-wing rival to Amnesty International) and the Internationale des Widerstands (Resistance International), bringing together anti-communist 'freedom fighters'. Following Swarup's return from Geneva, the defence in the Gandhi assassination trial abruptly changed strategy and tried to depoliticize the case by passing the ...
