41. The Road to 9/11, reviewed [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... on the Present Danger etc. in the 1970s found a way round Congressional restrictions on covert operations (using proxies, such as the Safari Club) and got the contracts flowing again. En route they sabotaged Jimmy Carter in the same way that Nixon had sabotaged Hubert Humphrey in 1968: by doing a political deal with America's notional enemies (Iran in Carter's case; North Vietnam in Hum-phrey's) to prevent Democratic success in the run-up to the presidential elections. In a sense, as Scott acknowledges, this is partly an elaboration the Yankee-Cowboy conflict first so described by Carl Oglesby. But just as this story is almost entirely about men, it is also mostly about Republicans. To ...

... Foreign Report; on p. 51 he writes of a 'part-time consultancy for IRD'; and on p. 86 that IRD 'put an office at [his] disposal.' He also boasts of 'dealings with the secret services of many other countries including France, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Israel, Morocco, Iran, Argentina, Chile and Taiwan.' As early as p. 20 it is hard to avoid concluding that Crozier is describing how he was recruited by MI6; and his 'independence' is finally revealed as simply a cover story on p. 92 when he writes of contacting his main 'case officer' in the CIA. Independents or ...

43. Death of the Strong Man [Lobster #17 (Nov 1988)]
... death on August 17 [1988] of President Zia ul-Haq of Pakistan in an aircrash unexplained as we went to press. His death came at a particularly sensitive moment as the Soviet occupation forces prepared to withdraw and both Afghan government and rebel forces geared up for the battle which will decide which bloc Afghanistan will follow. After the fall of Iran, Pakistan became America's vital staging post for covert intervention in the Indian sub-continent and the pivotal point for clandestine military assistance to the Afghan rebels- still the largest per-capita financial commitment in the CIA budget. In Zia, the US found an enthusiastic partner in the bid to arm and support the most reactionary Islamic factions in the mojahedin. ...

44. Publications and Book Reviews [Lobster #9 (Sep 1985)]
... work well in Ireland either. The killing of 13 civilians in Derry by British paratroopers caused just as big a row." (p107) RR Obbligato William H. Sullivan (Norton and Co. London 1984) This is a pleasant- if somewhat blind- memoire by a US career diplomat who ended up as the US Ambassador to Iran when the Shah fell. There are lots of little bits and pieces in the earlier chapters which may interest students of the history of US involvement in S.E. Asia. But for me the one memorable section is on pp 178/9 where Sullivan describes a wargame on Vietnam organised by the Joint Chiefs of Staff in late 1962: ...

... is a huge political force. All clerics, Christian, Jewish, Muslim and so on, can and do influence their publics, many are politically active and some at the very top of their societies: e.g. bishops and the Chief Rabbi in Parliament; the Vatican's one time refusal to recognise the state of Israel; the Ayatollahs of Iran; or allegations that Pope Francis may have had a nodding acquaintance with Argentina's Junta. Whatever the truth of the last of these, it will have done Pope Francis' reputation no harm in authoritarian nations such as China where he has Chinese Christians and bishops to protect. In particular, I am astonished by what appears to be an ...

46. Publications and Book Reviews [Lobster #6 (Nov 1984)]
... ). The mixture of detailed summaries of articles from the world's press plus reprints of especially notable pieces is very useful. This latest edition includes the significant extracts from the Defence Attache article on 007, a two page review/article on Loftus' The Belarus Secret, and precis on events in Italy, Peru, Africa, Mozambique, Iran, the General Collins trial mentioned in Lobster 1, (which has never been followed up in the UK press), Reagan, Laxalt and organised crime, and Nicaragua. Subs. $20 per year, but how this converts to pounds sterling is an interesting question with the sterling/dollar/franc exchange rates behaving as they ...

47. The CIA and the Culture of Failure [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... . In The Guardian on 4 March 2009 Will-iam Dalrymple wrote: 'Eight years of neocon foreign policies have been a spectacular disaster for American interests in the Islamic world, leading to the advance of Hamas and Hezboll-ah, the wreckage of Iraq, with more than two million external refugees and the ethnic cleansing of its Christian population, the rise of Iran as a major regional power, and now the implosion of Afghanistan and Pakistan, prob-ably the most dangerous develop-ment of all.' But for whom has this been a disaster? Or for which interests? All manner of people within the US have done very nicely out of the trashing of Iraq. Billions of dollars of tax dollars in ...

... chief in Turkey, and Ledeen, who at the time worked as a consultant for senior Reagan administration member Alexander Haig. The Pope is now dead but Ledeen is still very much alive, propagandising for years with his old pal Richard Perle from their base at the American Enterprise Institute for a war on Iraq and now for similar intervention in Iran and Syria. Ledeen was a regular contributor on terrorism and the defence of Ariel Sharon's Israel in The Daily Telegraph and The Spectator when Conrad Black was owner. In the April 3 2005 radio interview with Los Angeles public radio KPFK, Vincent Cannistraro, the former CIA head of counterterrorism and intelligence director at the National Security Council under President ...

... with thousands of men supported by millions of dollars." (Guardian October 1983) James Watkins, the Chief of Naval Operations, bemoaned what he described as 'the emasculation of the human aspects of our intelligence services' due to the lack of agents in the field. The US, he claimed, had been largely unprepared for events in Iran, Nicaragua, Lebanon and Grenada. (Times 16th December 1983) It is reported that DCIA William Casey assigned the ISA a number of covert missions (Newsweek 10th October 1983)- including Grenada? The ground had been prepared in the media throughout 1983 in support of the inevitable invasion. (See Reagan's Big Lie in Covert Action ...

... not in the wake of 9/11 but tracing it back to its roots in the Carter administration's support for Afghan resistance to the Soviet invas-ion. The simple point, that the US and Britain now find themselves just as mired in that country as the Russians did three decades ago, barely needs to be stated. That the architects of Iran Contra, an earlier alliance of 'creative destruction', in the brilliant terms of neo-con apparatchick Michael Ledeen, should be setting the agenda for the second President Bush came as no surprise; that there was such a continuum through the Clinton years per-haps should. Depending now on a Sunni 'arc of moderation' has simply inflamed the area further ...
