... 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- ...

... . He quotes from a Kirkpatrick essay of 1984, during which she muses that 'in the cool, reassuring plans of our founding fathers, informed by history and inspired by a passion for freedom, idealism and realism were closely interwoven'. Subsequently, as Grandin remarked in an interview, ( [5 ] ) Reagan was to elevate the Contras - the Nicaraguan anti-communist paramilitaries - into the 'moral equivalents of the US founding fathers'. Readers will have to decide on Grandin's case for the continuity of US policy against those who defend the recycled Reaganites as reformed and newly progressive. His latest book is essential reading, though, for the activist, student or dissenter. ...

... 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 ...

... 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 ...

... the Iraq invasion 19 years later. It is interesting to note, though, that it was a Conrad Black paper for which Ledeen wrote, The Daily Telegraph, which lost the libel action in which they claimed the Baghdad 'documents' fingered the then Labour MP George Galloway. During the Reagan presidency Ledeen was deeply involved in the Iran-Contra scandal, along with another old neo-con associate, John Negroponte (a key administration figure in the Iraq war and now about to head George Bush's new US intelligence organisation). Ledeen was the key link with Manucher Ghorbanifar and Adnan Khashoggi in the supply of arms from Israel. In earlier articles I have shown the direct links ...

... evidence 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 ...

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 ...

White; others with interests are former Secretary of State James Baker III; former Congressman Charles Wilson, former Assistant Secretary of Defense Richard Armitage and Major General Richard Secord, who was described as the 'chief covert operative' for Colonel Oliver North in the Iran-Contra scandal. (38) Thus, from across the political spectrum, we can see a rare unanimity of interests working at the top of the military-civil-political establishment, to secure the United States' economic interest in the region. To back up their commitment, 500 members of the U.S . Army's 82nd Airborne ...

It is done chronologically, so you get odd sequences of subjects: Gehlen, Roswell, Operation Paperclip, the murder of Ghandi; and Watergate, Littlejohn, Kincora, Allende; and AIDS conspiracy, Iran-Contra conspiracy, Hilda Murrel, Get Scargill, assassination of Mrs Ghandi. And so on. I haven't read the whole book but the sections I have read contain the kind of errors which are bound to arise unless the text is carefully proof-read by experts. There is also one very striking claim. In the section on the ...
