... alarm. Early in the Reagan presidency the US ambassador to Ireland, Peter Dailey, was recalled to co-ordinate both governmental and private initiatives to roll back the growing European opposition to the revived Cold War of which developments in the British Labour party and trade union movement were an important part. Documents declassified during the Congressional inquiry into the Iran Contra scandal, for example, describe a White House meeting at which President Reagan, along with senior intelligence officials, met Rupert Murdoch, Sir James Goldsmith, George Gallup and Joachim Maitre of the Springer publishing group, to discuss ways in which support for the Atlantic alliance could be bolstered. In this context - one Walden describes with ...

53. Historical Notes [Lobster #46 (Winter 2003)]
... was no grand assault, just some bombing of suspicious sites by American and British planes at the end of the year. What do these events tell us? First, that there was never any link between Iraq and al-Qaeda. The US conflict with radical Islam goes back not to 2001 but to 1979, when the Shah of Iran was toppled. His fall was a huge setback for Washington's ability to project its own influence and power throughout Near and Middle East. But Iran's replacement as a strategic ally by Iraq would reverse this defeat and provide Washington with the kind of regional influence it lost with the fall of the Shah. This would guarantee access to plentiful supplies ...

' He replied: 'We knew that Saddam Hussein had already destroyed his weapons of mass destruction, and that he was pretending to keep them in order to deter Iran. '8 To my knowledge this is the first time any CIA officer, past or present, has said this. Hitherto the line has been 'We didn't know that the Iraqis had scrapped their WMDs. ' Innocents abroad?

... , the ghastly series of atrocities that was US foreign policy in the 1980s in Central America in El Salvador, Nicaragua and Guatemala – remember Blowtorch Bob, the Americans' proxy psychopath in El Salvador? – is missing. Around half a million dead Central Americans do not merit comment, apparently. The domestic political spin-off, the Iran-Contra scandal, is there en passant. As are many other things. His introduction tell us that the Kennedy assassination was a landmark: but of all the hundreds of books on that event published in the period covered by these essays, he reviews only two of the least significant, both of which recycle the absurd Oswald- ...

Its activities included seaborne raids that may have triggered the August 1964 Gulf of Tonkin incident (which laid the foundation for a wider war), and its commanders included John K. Singlaub, later a figure in the World Anti-Communist League and Iran-contra affair. So mysterious was the group that even its name causes uncertainty: for cover purposes, it was the the Studies and Observations Group, but purists and insiders knew it as MACVSOG or MACSOG (after the 'U.S . Military Assistance Command, Vietnam', to which it was nominally attached), and still ...

... the managerialists in the US elite in the late 1970s. During the Carter Administration the managerialists, represented by the Trilateral Commission, advocated Ease/West trade as part of an integrated world economy. However, as Sanders shows, the enterprise was vulnerable and unstable. It depended on the use of local surrogate forces such as the Shah of Iran to maintain US power in the Third World; and at home, its co-ordinating body, the Trilateral Commission, was resolutely elitist. (Hardly surprising, since to explain and argue for its policies in front of a wider audience would have meant admitting that the history of the Cold War was rather different from what the US ...

... Stinson and his father Charles were principal developers of the immense Pacific Harbour tourist complex, constructed while Charles Stinson was Minister of Finance. One of the principal financiers was Adnan Khashoggi, (The New Zealand Listener, March 5 1977) famed Saudi billionaire gun-runner and beneficiary of Lockheed bribes, commissions and kickbacks, also involved in the Iran-Contra scandal. Khashoggi has reportedly since pulled his money out, but still has links with Mara. His private DC-9 airliner was most recently seen in Fiji in November 1986.(IB, December 1986) Cultivation of Fiji's military elite Fiji is unique amongst the South Pacific island states for its relatively large military force. ...

After being removed from the SDECE in 1982 by Marenches' successor, the Socialist appointee Pierre Marion, Roussin moved over to become Chirac's 'Chef de Cabinet', putting his previous experience of Iran to good use as operational head of Chirac's 1987 hostages cell.
