... over at the head of an Emergency Government, backed up by the Monarchy and the armed services. The lack of comment probably owes something to the circumstances of the events, which are still a little obscure, and something to a general belief that King's enterprise was the work of a deluded maverick. Whatever the truth of the Cecil King coup, it is hard to maintain that King himself was a lonely figure at this time. He had powerful supporters and contacts, and several of these were key City figures, including senior officials at the Bank of England. These men were in a position to do real damage to the government: there was, as they say, ...

42. Brothers, reviewed [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... majority obtained in a bent election, JFK was a pinko 'yankee', facing – and during the Bay of Pigs and the Cuban missile crisis, facing down – the 'cowboy' leadership of the world's most powerful military and intelligence forces. I had not previously grasped how much the Kennedys and their staffs talked about the possibility of a military coup being run against them and how much of the time the Kennedys used back channels to circumvent bureaucracies they didn't trust. Talbot answers the question, Why didn't Robert do more about his brother's death? He shows that the Kennedy's entourage did make a number of discreet and, as far as we know, unsuccessful efforts to find out what ...

... from fears of clandestine forces.... ' On the other hand: 'Western leaders have to act with special propriety to shed a long-established -- and deserved -- reputation for deviousness. ' [ 'Deviousness'!] .. . 'Living in a political culture ignorant of secret police, a political underground and coups d'etat [Americans] often find it hard to imagine that plots do play a role in other countries. ' This is pretty staggering -- and not a little puzzling -- even for somebody writing for the U.S . intelligence community during the Reagan-Bush years. What about the FBI, loyalty programs, Cointelpro, ...

44. Truth Twisting: notes on disinformation [Lobster #19 (May 1990)]
... British laws on libel make it difficult, if not impossible, to describe the penetration of the Labour Party as the conspiracy which many people are certain it is. ' (pp. 59-60) Another outstanding example of this genre also used by Deacon is Frederick Forsyth's 1984 The Fourth Protocol, in which, via an internal party coup, Ken Livingstone becomes Prime Minister, supplanting Prime Minister Neil Kinnock. This is achieved via a rerun of the political coup which made Livingstone leader of the Greater London Council. Such a coup is practically inconceivable, if only because, unlike the leader of the erstwhile Greater London Council, the Prime Minister is appointed by the Queen. ...

... bungled that it almost looked like some kind of a setup. ' 1 In his Secret Agenda (1984) Jim Hougan showed that one of the phones the 'plumbers' targeted was being used by DNC staffers to book hookers.2 The 'plumbers' were after dirt. This theme was reworked a little in Len Colodny and Robert Gettlin's Silent Coup: The Removal of Richard Nixon (1991) and this book is a further elaboration of the hooker theme, based round the author's acquisition of the phone book of one of the women, and it confirms and thickens Hougan's original research of 30 years ago. The author's thesis is this: the CIA were running a honey trap, ...

46. 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 ...

... bet against him becoming the candidate? Grauniadia As the Guardian slides slowly down the pan there have been odd signs of intelligent life there beyond the economics pages. There was Owen Jones on the prospect that the British (secret) state might not take too kindly to a Corbyn-led Labour government. Invoking Chris Mullins' A Very British Coup and Peter Wright in a jumbled account of anti-Wilson coup talk and planning, which conflated events in the 1960s and 70s, Jones prefaced it all with the obligatory 'What, me paranoid? ' reference: 'You are probably imagining me hunched over my computer with a tinfoil hat. So consider this: there is a precedent for ...

... , are virtually non-existent. Item: WACL's role as the public 'cover' for CIA funding of the Contras. Item: reports that WACL's General John Singlaub and WACL supporter, ex-DDCIA, Ray Cline accompanied Manila CIA station chief and the CIA's General Sweitzer on a visit to messers Enrile and Ramos, just before the abortive coup against Mrs Aquino's government. One need not jump to conclusions: the Americans may have been trying to call the coup off. Either way, the presence of Singlaub and Cline in that kind of company, in those circumstances, is very interesting. (Singlaub's presence may have had something to do with the fact that the head of ...

... what Baghdad means for both Shi'a and Sunni Muslims. ' US/UK invaders deviously encouraged fear among both sects that the other would seek hegemony, inspiring 'polarization and bloody strife' (p . 35). Saddam Hussein joined a failed Ba'athist conspiracy in 1959 to assassinate President Quasim, who had gained power the year before in a nationalist coup that killed the Iraqi royal family and the prime minister. Quasim himself was ousted in 1963. In 1968 another coup brought Saddam Hussein's faction of the Ba'athist party into power. The leaders took advantage of CIA help, but Al-Ani argues that they remained independent of US influence. The new administration created, on the basis of ...

... the White House just before, during and immediately after the plane strikes, that COG procedures were implemented by Rumsfeld and Cheney on 9/11. How important this is – if true – I am unable to decide. Since the Pentagon has control of most things which affect its well-being, why would they bother with a formal coup? ' As I make abundantly clear in my book (e .g . pp. 225-26, citing the 9/11 Commission Report, pp. 38, 326, and Richard Clarke's Against All Enemies, p. 8) there is no ambiguity: COG measures were implemented around 10 am on September 11.
