... In March the situation facing sterling deteriorated, as forecast. But although there is no doubt that the pound was vulnerable on the exchanges, the cause of the latest crisis lay outside the UK. Following the shock of the Tet offensive in Vietnam, when Viet Cong forces had for a time succeeded in reaching Saigon and even penetrating the US Embassy compound, pressure on the dollar had mounted. By early March it was being sold in favour of gold at the price of $1 = 35oz, which the US had guaranteed since the 1944 Bretton Woods Agreement. Indeed, it was the confidence that the US would always be able to redeem dollar liabilities in gold which had allowed ...

72. The biggest of big lies? [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... when the "[ UN Military Observers] in Zagreb organized a press conference on large-scale human rights violations by the Bosnian Croats during the recently completed Operation Storm (carried out with U.S . assistance). The room was full of journalists and things were just about to start when a official from the U.S . Embassy in Zagreb suddenly entered and announced that a press conference was about to begin at the embassy where information would be released on aerial photos of possible mass graves around Srebrenica. The room emptied immediately. ' When someone enlarges the Herman-Peterson thesis to book length, part of the extended version will be interviews with some of the non ...

... ) and in the Congo (1960-62) where he was second in command when the United States organised the overthrow of Patrice Lumumba. He was one of the architects of the rise of Sese Mobuto to power. He was expelled from Zanzibar for subversive activities in 1965 and transferred to Brazil as counsellor for political affairs at the US embassy. Here, he helped consolidate in power the military dictatorship that, with US encouragement, had seized control in 1964. This regime ruled by the most brutal methods, including the routine use of torture. In 1974 he was appointed Ambassador to Portugal, charged with saving the country from socialist revolution. He threw American support behind Mario ...

... Chalabi (but then this journalist has since outed himself in the New Statesman as an MI6 patsy); and Chalabi's rival for post-invasion power, his second cousin Iyad Allawi. Allawi, known as 'Sadaam Lite', is a British-trained neurosurgeon who is believed to have headed the European division of the Mukhabarat from the Iraqi embassy in London. Despite being accused of having tortured and killed, Allawi still ended up as the coalition's interim Prime Minister of Iraq in the run up to the 2005 elections. Somewhere away from Baghdad, closer to the Kelly's home in Southmoor in Oxfordshire, Baker believes an Iraqi exile group organised the death of David Kelly. Of various ...

... one man and his coterie? Because our political system has undergone a quiet revolution, that is why. Harold Wilson could defy the superpower on Vietnam not because he feared mass protests but because he feared the cost to his management of the Party. A real conspiracy theorist (which I am not) would see the hand of the US Embassy in the Labour Party's Partnership in Power reforms (4 ) because the State Department was the ultimate beneficiary. Similarly, the necessary market revolution against the sclerotic corporatism of special interests in the 1980s should have been the prelude to a new market-driven social democracy along European lines but was it? No, a greedy, desperate and ...

... electrodes in the brains of three prisoners in an attempt to control their behaviour. The experiments failed and the victims were killed and their bodies destroyed.(16) More sophisticated was the attempt, chronicled by Frank Snepp, to break a North Vietnamese prisoner, Nguyen Van Tai, one of the organisers of the Tet attack on the US Embassy in Saigon. As Snepp recalled, 'he had not been treated kindly' when first captured, but was now placed in solitary confinement in a totally white cell where he was kept hungry, cold and disorientated for four years. In all this time, Tai never even 'admitted who he was'. With the collapse of South Vietnam ...

The author blurb tells me that Landau is an Emmy-winning filmmaker and a Fellow and Board Member of the Institute for Policy ...

... we do not have enough troops to control the city. ' This same officer added: 'We have been left to hold the flag while politicians enjoy their holidays and wait for Bush to make a decision. ' Afghanistan In Afghanistan too, there are mutterings – and not only about resources and the Americans. The populist story about the UK Embassy in Afghanistan being given a swimming pool for staff to relax in while the soldiery faces water shortages in Helmand Province may be exaggerated, but it indicates a profound insensitivity on the part of the FCO. It is another example of the British establishment's unthinking propensity to appear to treat its soldiers like an improved version of lower class swine while ...

One of the men arrested in Gambia and subsequently released said that when he was questioned by his American interrogator and demanded to contact a lawyer and the British Embassy he received an illuminating response: 'Who do you think asked us to arrest you? Where do you think this information came from, the questions we are asking you? ' The men have been visited at least six times at Guantanamo Bay by MI5 officials promising their release should they agree to act as informers. When they sent the ...

... -Smith, 'Searching for the Successor Generation: Public Diplomacy, the US Embassy's International Visitor Program and the Labour Party in the 1980s'.( [2 ] ) I made only a passing reference to this then because it arrived just as I was finishing that issue. The information in this paper on the involvement of the US London embassy in Labour Party politics, with Peter Mandelson prominent, ought to be front-page news. But that is unlikely to happen (even if the British media were made aware of the information). Some of the British media wouldn't use it because it would embarrass both Blair and the Americans; some because it would embarrass the Americans ...
