111. The CIA and the Marshall Planks (Book review) [Lobster #23 (Jun 1992)]
... , Vietnam-- all fall outside this period. I am no expert on the literature of OPC/CIA but I am not even sure that there is anything resembling 'a picture of the covert operations of this period'. If asked about CIA covert operations in this period I would have difficulty producing much information about anything before the 1953 coup in Iran. Some bits on Italy, some on Germany, the Congress for Cultural Freedom.... Pisani's thesis is correcting a fault only she perceives. Pisani shows how a smallish group of what one of their number, Richard Bissell, called 'determined interventionists' set about trying to reconstruct the post-WW2 world in the interests of ...

... , who not only saved the world during the Cuban Missile Crisis, but had been rebuffed by the Yanks; and then there was Gordiefsky on hand to whisper in Mrs Thatcher's ear that Gorbachev was on the level, and that she could 'do business with him'. (A station chief as defector-in-place, Gordiefsky was the ultimate pure espionage coup.) In espionage literature this myth is most strikingly displayed by Verrier's Through the Looking Glass (Cape, London, 1983). Pitched somewhere between the Sunday Express and the Oxford University Press, Christopher Andrew's KGB appeared after a marketing campaign led by a series of tv appearances by a bizarrely disguised Gordiefsky. (As if the KGB ...

113. The Perfect English Spy (Book Review) [Lobster #29 (Jun 1995)]
... , covert operator boys- with G. K. Young prominent- needed reigning in. They were too expensive and too embarassing when things went wrong. White wanted SIS to be an intelligence service- yes, with clandestine sources- but also one which, he could assure his colleagues in Whitehall, would not embarass them. No more coup plotting in the Middle East, for example. One of the problems with the book is its lack of clarity about sources. Some of it simply is not sourced; and sometimes the source can be inferred from the context. For example, there is this paragraph on p. 76. 'Clement Attlee, Britain's new Labour prime minister ...

... help assess the relative importance of issues to the public. Role in international politics The report discusses the increasingly important role played by the internet in international politics and its ability to 'circumvent the informational controls imposed by authoritarian regimes on their citizens.... for example, the Chinese students in Tiananmen Square and the Russian democrats during the Moscow coup used computer networks to communicate with kindred spirits around the world'. It notes that it played an important role in recent conflicts. Citizens of Sarajevo could e-mail messages out, and during the December 1991 attack on parliament in Moscow, where a left-wing dissident was beaten up and jailed by the police with others, a message for help ...

... of the fifties, were guilty as charged. There are still people on the US Left clinging to the belief that this material is some kind of fake, but that seems profoundly unlikely to me. These books, with their massive documentation, constitute proof. On the other hand, this is also the story of the most spectacular intelligence coup of the twentieth century. In the 1930s, largely using CPUSA members or sympathisers, the Soviet Union built networks such that by the war's beginning it had dozens of people in place to penetrate the US government, the federal bureaucracies and many of the big corporations. This is described in great, even tedious, detail in these books ...

... a military advisor to the Shah's anti-communist special forces. In 1962 he returned to Vietnam as the CIA's chief of field operations. He also served as a 'floating emissary', reporting directly to the Kennedy White House while secretly coaching the cabal of generals who murdered President Diem and his opium-addicted brother Nhu on 2 November 1963. After the bloody coup d'etat, Conein remained in South Vietnam until 1968- but not without further controversy. As noted, McCoy contends that Ellsberg and Conein had formed a fast friendship at the exact same moment Conein was arranging a 'truce' between the CIA and unnamed Corsican drug smugglers in Saigon. Conein, however, adamantly denied the allegation that he arranged ...

... this mission without coordination with the Departments of State or Defense...' The policy was clear and had to be kept super-secret. But it also had to be implemented- and the second paper provides a glimpse of the relevant operational guidelines. It begins by reaffirming that 'It is firm and continuing policy that Allende be overthrown by a coup'. Even if this could not happen by 24 October 'efforts in this regard will continue vigorously beyond that date', on a clandestine basis 'so that the USG (US Government) and American hand will be well hidden'. It called for selective contact with military leaders wanting to strike against Allende (interestingly, Pinochet is not ...

... Bleeder' can hardly have endeared him to Mosley's inner circle. According to Francis Beckett, his father regarded Mosley as a megalomaniac (surely one of the qualifications for a fascist leader!), who was increasingly out of touch with reality. The final proof was during the abdication crisis when Mosley confidently expected Edward VIII to stage a constitutional coup, dissolving Parliament and installing him as Prime Minister. The call never came, although there were a few in Establishment circles who were worried that the King might just be desperate enough to attempt this. Despite this setback, Britain's 'man of destiny' continued to regard his ascension to power as imminent, a delusion that continued even in ...

... In 1972 he ditched everything and travelled overland through Central and South America to Chile to see Allende's revolution. The chapter on Chile powerfully conveys a sense of the mixture of hope and paranoia then prevailing in Chile on the left as they waited for the military to crush Allende. Some of the people Blum knew in Chile were murdered after the coup. Blum quit America and went Europe- Denmark, Germany and then Britain. He didn't like us uptight Europeans very much. More scuffling. In London he was recruited by the Workers Revolutionary Party, surviving their rhetoric and discipline for two months. Then he had the moment which changed his life. All through the anti-Vietnam War activist ...
