141. The limits of accountability [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... has the power to censor them before they are passed onto both Houses of Parliament. The reports have tended to be lacklustre and are rarely controversial. They are a safe pair of hands hence the government preference for dealing with them. This committee actually produced a report 'The Handling of Detainees by UK Intelligence Personnel in Afghanistan, Guantanamo Bay and Iraq' in 2005. This was pretty anodyne: they failed to see anything significantly wrong. After mentioning that they had taken evidence from Amnesty International, who had made two specific allegations about ill-treatment by British intelligence personnel, the Committee washed their hands of the matter by saying that 'we are not the statutory body that investigates individual complaints into ...

... fully guaranteed.' Abroad of course, not at home.(24) Into the Middle East In his 2004 state of the Union address, George W. Bush called for the doubling of the NED's budget, from $40 million to $80 million, with virtually all of the new funding going to the Middle East, and Iraq in particular. Even before Bush's speech, the NED was already funding and setting up pro-US Iraqi organisations involved in polling, the media, civic education, and political party building.(25)Of Europe's democracy assistance foundations, Germany's party-based groups still account for the lion's share of the combined annual budget with some 358 million from a ...

143. Yo, Blair! [Lobster #52 (Winter 2006/7)]
... and that this arrangement, which enabled Blair to be financially independent of the Labour Party's resources and thus to all intents and purposes beyond their control was facilitated by Gideon Meir, then with the Israeli embassy in London.( [3]) The triumph of politicians( [4]) On both sides of the Atlantic, Iraq has demonstrated the primacy of politicians. We saw opposition to the attack on Iraq from sections of the Anglo-American military, intelligence agencies and diplomats, accompanied by the biggest campaign of leaks of classified information I can remember. Yet nothing happened. British participation in the invasion was not prevented. The politicians saw off the protests which were ...

... . Buy ExxonMobil, Andarko, or Valero shares and you can't go wrong. Well, yes given ExxonMobil's recent quarterly $5 billion profits, one might well agree. The oil price is high due to limited refining capacity. In 1980 there were 425 refineries across America: there are 176 today. His understanding of the oil politics of Iraq is good and he admits the rebuilding programme has failed. You may puzzle why Iraqi oil is a 'prize' while the cost of the war exceeds $325 billion to date and may hit $2 trillion before the country can return to any semblance of normality; yet the $20 billion of US reconstruction money has failed to provide ...

... to me. Not a lot, I would guess. These ambiguities leave much room for discussion. Glees and Davies are academics and run the Brunel Centre for Intelligence and Security Studies. Morrison was a career intelligence officer who was the ISC's researcher for five years until fired for having the temerity to express minor dissent from the government line on Iraq, and he is now at the Brunel Centre. Between them they have much academic and practical knowledge. The authors are essentially conservative defenders of the British security and intelligence system. It isn't that they aren't critical; it's just that they don't want to, or are unable to, deal with the reality of that system. In ...

... the latter's goodwill relevant commercially as well as strategically. It takes Hollywood in a new direction:one version of a movie does not work for all markets, therefore produce two.( [2]) US government PR personnel do not have the same luxury. This is principally because the executive they serve flaunted its legitimacy of action in Iraq by single messaging e.g. insurgents are terrorists an advertising technique, rather than a PR one.( [3]) Cold War PR The US executive's Iraq PR collapsed because, unlike during the Cold War, it unravelled, along with the horrors, in real time. Throughout the latter conflict, America was rightly portrayed ...

The collection would be even larger if it also included statements that appear mistaken only in hindsight. However, if a statement was'...an accurate reflection of U.S. intelligence at the time it was made, it...[has been] ...excluded even if it now appears erroneous.'

... 20th century, the left has been confronted with a US taking on the role of creating new democratic regimes, rather than sustaining the repressive status quo in the interests of stability. Some most strident in their critique of past policies now write of a resurgent American idealism, a new era, during which, for example, the people of Iraq have been released from a fear unparalleled in the Middle East. Grandin does not take on critics who have defended the US since 9/11, many of whom came to subsequent events through an appetite for polemics rather than from a serious interest in politics or history. His new book, Empire's Workshop, did arise, however, ...

... scale of the threat elsewhere. But it is clear that very many such 'honest mistakes' are taking place and that judges and juries are beginning to take a dim view of matters.( [7] )Similarly, the scale of the threat still remains an assertion rather than a fact although I do not minimise this. In Iraq, we have estimates of deaths in the region of 300,000 600,000 since 2003( [8] )and, in Afghanistan, bombing raids still kill civilians.( [9] )If we are at war with insurgents, then the fear of the authorities that they might strike at us is simply the ...

NS) made a stab at the job in 2002, but suffered very heavy criticism for its 'anti-Semitism' from, among others, the then Labour general secretary and now Foreign Office minister and colleague of Lord Levy, David Triesman. In the week that I write this, the award-winning NS political editor Martin Bright describes 'Blair's twin shame of Iraq and cash for honours' as 'on the one hand, a foreign policy catastrophe; on the other, a classic domestic sleaze scandal'. Several American writers, including one of the two authors under review, try to investigate links between 'foreign policy catastrophe' and 'domestic sleaze'. One wonders how many years will pass before the ...
