... : if one can't feed a story to state-controlled media, play it off the international media, knowing the local press will feel honour bound to report the coverage. 'Our one access to daylight was the US media and its knock on to the Filipino media … It was a huge, huge stitch-up.

... a stopover in New York and flown to Syria where he was 'allegedly tortured for almost a year but later declared innocent of any terrorist connection'. We can safely remove the word 'allegedly' from this quotation; but otherwise Kilcullen's remarks are not what one expects from a counterinsurgency expert working for the United States. Similarly, his discussion of Iran notes that 'those of us who served in Iraq always saw Iranian actions as aggressive – understandably, I guess, since they were doing their best to kill us'; but then he goes on to acknowledge'....that Tehran's motivation to acquire nuclear weapons, sponsor terrorists, launch covert operations and expand its influence across ...

13. Economic Recession and Arms Sales Increases [Lobster #12 (Sep 1986)]
... had averaged $2 billion a year through most of the 1960s leapt to $3 .9 billion in 1973, then to $8 .3 billion in 1974, after the oil price increases of 1973 put new dollar surpluses in the hands of the OPEC countries - including three of the four new U.S . superclient states (Iran, Nigeria and Indonesia). This swelling of the international arms trade also pumped new resources into the hands of the international sales and payoff system which had grown up to market such sales. Most of these arms traffickers were recruited from the international right-wing and/or intelligence community. Not surprisingly, many of the key contacts ...

... the Libyan intelligence service and a manager at Libyan Airways and therefore a likely suspect. ' One of the Palestinians, who resembled al-Megrahi, bought the clothes in Malta. This might all be kosher but it is a striking coincidence that this report has appeared just when the Libya-dunnit story is slowly being officially revised to an Iran-dunnit version, and shows the Libya solution being the result of a cunning disinformation plot by the 'terrorists', and not the result of bribery and evidence fabrication by the CIA.

15. In Spies We Trust (Book review) (Winter 2013) [Lobster #66 (Winter 2013) (free)] [Free Article]
... Jeffreys-Jones points out, that 'an intelligence agency can rarely publicise its successes, so to dwell on failings can be a distortion of the true record'; but even so, it's the negatives that stand out. Anglo-American intelligence agencies have failed to predict wars and uprisings, made international situations worse through their covert interventions (Iran in 1953 is the big example, but there are many others), abused human rights, broken everyone's laws, routinely spied on innocents, been penetrated by enemies as well as betrayed by their friends, and misled, even turned against, their own democracies. In their favour, signals intelligence probably shortened the Second World War, ...

... this to have been done with CIA knowledge and approval. In this trial Carrasco was a federal prosecution witness.(12) CIA knowledge of drug-trafficking in support of the Contras was possibly admitted by Alan Fiers, in the mid-1980s the Chief of the CIA's Central American Task Force. In a sworn deposition to the Congressional Iran-Contra Committees, the Task Force Chief said: 'We knew that everybody around [Contra leader Eden] Pastora was involved in cocaine. His staff and friends [redacted] they were drug smugglers or involved in drug smuggling. '( 13) Whether or not they were named in the redaction to his deposition, we know that ...

Finally Cockburn gets to the rise of ISIS, which he spotted very early on, and the present chaotic situation with Saudi Arabia and Iran funding proxy armies and NATO member Turkey assisting ISIS and attacking the Kurds (who are fighting ISIS). The major theme here is this: as happened in the former Yugoslavia, if your reference group – family, tribe, community – are threatened, it doesn't take much for mutual mistrust between communities to turn to paranoia and then ...

He writes (p 167): 'The essential idea behind U.S . foreign policy in the 1950s was the defence of democracy. But in order to "save" Iran and Guatemala from the tendentious threat of communism, the CIA conspired to over-throw the democratic government in those two countries, condemning local people to decades of autocratic misrule.
