41. Fascism: Theory and Practice (Book review) [Lobster #38 (Winter 1999)]
... and Mason- had the humility to accept and be troubled by. Renton's presentation of Trotsky as the ultimate theorist on fascism is a fatuous hypothesis: he was merely less wrong than the Stalinists, but as equally uncomprehending of the basic ideological motivations of fascism as most other Marxists. It is sad that a self-proclaimed Marxist like Renton should, contra Marx, so resolutely refuse to allow empirical evidence to influence his theories, except as insubstantial and contradictory adornments. Take, for instance, his references to the British National Front. By the mid-1980s according to Renton, 'the organisation was in a state of utter collapse' (p.7). Might I suggest Renton actually examines the articles ...

... (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 assassination off as the result of ...

43. 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 ...

... there were days when Iran was not top of Israel and America's 'axis of evil' hit list, but rather the means of lubricating the foreign policy interests of both. Mossad 91 Summer 2010 founding father Kimche was a key figure in setting up the 1985 US arms-for-Iran deal when President Ronald Reagan was needing to find a way to finance the Contra rebels in Nicaragua after the US Senate ruled such funding illegal. Israel supplied the weapons and Reagan's Central American friends got the dosh. Kimche, working with his old friend and key Reagan security adviser Michael Ledeen, was the brains behind the scheme, leaving former US marine Colonel Oliver North as the fall guy when the whole covert operation ...

... or better) than that. In 1982 the Agency actually went to the Attorney General of the United States to get his permission to ignore drug dealing. In effect the CIA, with government permission, gave cocaine dealers in Central and South America a 'get out of jail free' card: for a few thousand dollars of support for the contras they could fly their product in unhindered. And so the guns out and drugs back pattern began. Iran-Contra is frequently short-handed as weapons- for-hostages. More significantly it was guns-for-coke. The MJ-12 theories about alien-government contact are presented but she forbears to tell her readers that the whole thing was cooked-up by the US Air Force. Rather than ...

... . 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. For the ...

... 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 the UK but as far as I can see this edition will not be. If you have trouble ordering this you could try contacting the book's ...

... late Franz Josef Strauss, Bavarian Premier and Langemann's boss. Strauss was a close friend of Alexandre de Marenches and was a frequent visitor to the SDECE's headquarters during Marenches' time. The Hanns-Seidel-Stiftung, the political trust attached to Strauss' Christian Social Union party, is an important group in international parapolitical manipulation. Active in Latin America for the Contras,(3) supporting Mobuto in Zaire, involved in the Fiji coup in 1987, it was caught diverting state development aid from Germany into right-wing party coffers in Ecuador in the same year. Strauss and CSU were the main beneficiaries of identified Pinay Circle activities; i.e. the promotion of right-wing European politicians through Brian Crozier, Robert ...

After Dark broke all these rules from the beginning, built as it was by the Viennese to reflect the polygon of views that is real life, rather than the binary fallacy of yes/no, pro/contra stylised debates. Somehow we still managed to make the news, broke many stories of importance, and flourished like a dock leaf next to the nettle of Thatcherite triumphalism. The special freedoms guaranteed by the programme were grabbed by the participants, who often said the apparently unsayable. Intelligent production kept us out of the law courts, if ...
