31. Western Goals (UK) [Lobster #21 (May 1991)]
... 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.

Around half a million dead Central Americans do not merit comment, apparently. The domestic political spin-off, the Iran-Contra scandal, is there en passant. As are many other things. His introduction tell us that the Kennedy assassination was a landmark: but of all the hundreds of books on that event published in the period covered by these essays, he reviews only two of the least significant, both of which recycle the absurd Oswald-did- ...

... community and elements of Cold War liberalism during the early Cold War. In effect that alliance, exemplified most clearly in the relationship between James Angleton and Jay Lovestone, moved out of the Government and into the conservative movement.

Active in internal Italian politics during the Red Brigades/strategy of tension years ( Lobster 31 et seq ) and then an important figure in the Reagan years from the assassination attempt on the Pope in 1981 (see below) through to Iran-Contra, Ledeen is now plying in support of the Israeli cause from his base at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) ( Lobster 31 et seq ). Both men's views were much in evidence to UK audiences over Iraq, Ledeen through the good offices of the Hollinger Group, until recently run by the Telegraph/Spectator group owner Conrad ...

The Republicans are going to lose the American presidential election. George Bush is slowly drowning under the mountain of coke some of his flunkeys were running to raise funds for the Contras in the new privatised American imperialism. With Dukakis - from Kennedy family territory - the next President (unless something spectacular is staged, say an assassination that could be dumped on the left), much of the US state support for this know-nothing revival on the right will vanish. And the yahoos will look back on the ...

One of the principal financiers was Adnan Khashoggi, (The New Zealand Listener, March 5 1977) famed Saudi billionaire gun-runner and beneficiary of Lockheed bribes, commissions and kickbacks, also involved in the Iran-Contra scandal. Khashoggi has reportedly since pulled his money out, but still has links with Mara. His private DC-9 airliner was most recently seen in Fiji in November 1986.(IB, December 1986) Cultivation of Fiji's military elite Fiji is unique amongst the South Pacific island states for its relatively large military force.

Its activities included seaborne raids that may have triggered the August 1964 Gulf of Tonkin incident (which laid the foundation for a wider war), and its commanders included John K. Singlaub, later a figure in the World Anti-Communist League and Iran-contra affair. So mysterious was the group that even its name causes uncertainty: for cover purposes, it was the the Studies and Observations Group, but purists and insiders knew it as MACVSOG or MACSOG (after the 'U.S .

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.
