81. Armed and Dangerous: the corporate origins of war with Iran (Summer 2012) [Lobster #63 (Summer 2012) (free)] [Free Article]
... In keeping with the entrepreneurial spirit of David Stirling (that dates from the Long Range Desert Patrols during World War II) it was the 23rd Airborne Territorial SAS in Hereford that provided the main recruitment conduit for these state sanctioned covert operations. Again, the memoir of 'Tom Carew' would seem to confirm this. Outsourced state terrorism and the contras The link between British Special Forces and military privatisation partly entered the public domain in the Iran- Contra Affair. In 1983, Margaret Thatcher was returned to office with an increased majority only because of the Falklands' War. But victory in that war carried a price. Britain won the Falklands War because of signals intelligence provided by the ...

... ghastly series of atrocities that was US foreign policy in the 1980s in Central America in El Salvador, Nicaragua and Guatemala – remember Blowtorch Bob, the Americans' proxy psychopath in El Salvador? – is missing. 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- ...

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 ...

According to Norton-Taylor and Pallister, the CFB placed 'anonymously published savage advertisements against Labour', and the CFB is also stated to have paid the legal costs of groups taking on supposed left-wing councils, and to have invited Adolfo Calero, the Nicaraguan Contra leader, to visit the UK.3 9 The CFB also published the same 'British Briefing' that Crozier published, on which Colin Wallace has commented: 'Many of the smears in British Briefing are exactly the same sort of thing I was being asked by MI5 to spread in the 1970s.

He 33 <http://williamblum.org/aer/read/126> recalled the libertarian right which was then a force in the Federation of Conservative Students – all that macho posturing in support of the Cold War, the Contras in Nicaragua and the South African government against the ANC. How many of them knew they were part of psy-ops operations being run by South African intelligence and the CIA? I don't know; and my guess is they would not have cared greatly if they had. The libertarian right and the Marxist left share the belief that ...

... account or informing the public. Rather, it is more prosaic things such as getting a story; producing enough to keep their jobs or advance their careers; and competing with their rivals on other similar papers or TV programmes – none of which are enhanced by straying off the reservation. Gary Webb and his stories about the CIA, the Contras and cocaine – the dark alliance as he called it – in the San Jose Mercury News in 1996, illustrated what can happen when you leave the reservation. Despite the fact that Webb's stories about the CIA allowing cocaine trafficking into the US in exchange for funding for the Contras were true, Webb and the paper were attacked by many ...

... steal to enrich their masters on our behalf. This Orwellian (and even Heinleinian) reality was obvious from the first moments 9/11 turned into an invasion of Iraq, but it has been in the cards constantly in my lifetime: the Congressional oversight in the 70s led only to an October Surprise in 1980 and then the Iran-Contra abuses. America's current permanent War Of Terror has led to its losing the last shreds of its moral standing, pissed away when we had most of the world standing with us after 9/11. Senator Feinstein may have got the report out into the public before Mitch McConnell took over the Senate and buried it, but Senator Feinstein ...

... American society. Today it not only dominates both parties, but it is also financing threats to both these parties from even further to the right. That change has been achieved partly by money, but partly also with the assistance of deep events: events, such as the Kennedy assassination, Watergate, the 1980 October Surprise, Iran-Contra and 9/11, which repeatedly have involved lawbreaking and/or violence, have been mysterious to begin with, and whose mystery has been compounded by systematic falsification in media and internal government records.
