21. Some examples of corporate, cultural and state PR [Lobster #52 (Winter 2006/7)]
... the meat sector, one of Britain's largest exports. Today their views on, say, animal welfare are mainstream even if the public is not vegetarian. As a result, the word slips from executive vocabulary. For the moment at least, it maintains ownership of the term 'rogue state'. A previous US administration managed to support the Contras, as well as organised crime, without being so described, so that it can continue to determine the criminal: e.g. those involved in drug distribution but not land mines; kidnap but not rendition; illegal invasion of a country (Iraq v Kuwait) but not when the protagonist is itself or an ally (UK/US ...

22. The Strength of the Wolf (Book review) [Lobster #48 (Winter 2004)]
... of CIA involvement in the drugs business, but he does not show that the the CIA 'oversaw' the international drug traffic. He shows that, putting the Cold War first, the CIA turned a blind eye to, and sometimes assisted its local allies in, their narcotics business just as it did again in the 1980s with the Contras. Valentine's claims about the CIA and police vice squads may turn out to be true but he doesn't have the evidence. The temptation to make dramatic statements shows elsewhere. On p.262, of the Kennedy assassination, he writes: 'Meanwhile, General Walker, the far-right American Security Council (including General Lansdale and Air America Chairman Admiral Felix ...

23. 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 ...

... 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 ...

(7) Demos brought over several free-market ideologues including Philip Bobbitt (LBJ's nephew). He was Reagan's legal counsel from 1980-81, on the Select Committee/cover-up on Iran/Contra and Director for Intelligence at the NSC 1997-98. Demos also advertised an April meeting with George Soros.

... 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 ...

... 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 ...

... tie their hands. The solutions they came up with ranged from getting 'private' organisations to do some of the fundraising and propagandising; bullying the media into compliance; running massive psy-ops campaigns against the American population to overcome 'the Vietnam syndrome'; getting proxies to do the killing for them; getting permission for dope dealers who contributed to the Contras to deal cocaine in America; and covertly selling arms to raise the money denied by Congress. As an after-thought attempts were made to elaborate a 'doctrine' for this activity which encompassed all the constraints. This 'doctrine' was called Low Intensity Conflict (LIC) and the author argues that in the mid-1980s LIC became 'a coherent and ideologically ...
