... death solved the problem. As for Syria, Aldrich and Cormac reveal that many within both the CIA and MI6 did not believe that the sarin attack on Ghoutta was the work of the Assad regime. It had too much to lose by provoking the Americans. The pretext for war was false, something that was still a sensitive issue after Iraq. Instead there was a strong suspicion that it was the work of the Turkish-backed al-Nusra front, intending to fix the blame on Assad and thereby provoke a US attack on his regime. The US had ready 'a "shock and awe" campaign led by a fleet of B- 52s', to which Britain ...

... his italics] to have uncovered many of the lies and falsehoods uttered by politicians and officials. I failed to do so. It is no excuse that I was part of a wider failure. Though there were shining exceptions, the mainstream media as a whole failed to tell truth to power in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq. It should always be taken into account that it was not only politicians and officials who failed in their duty. ' Self-criticism usually gives weight to that made of others. It is not the only reason for reading this fine book, but it's healthy for starters. John Booth ...

... in Kenya, in 20-30 pages, without it feeling sketchy; but Newsinger pulls it it off. I'm not a specialist in this field and this kind of brisk, assertive account, with lots of documentation if I chose to pursue it, is what I want. ' Since the 2002 edition Newsinger has added a chapter on Iraq, another devastating account of the self-delusion and staggering incompetence of the Americans and futility on the part of the British Army, which suffered nearly two hundred deaths and three and half thousand injuries in Iraq to no military purpose at all. They were almost literally sacrificed – Tony Blair's 'blood price' – in pursuit of the British ...

'The officials, ' we learned, included 'European and Iraqi intelligence officials and a French lawmaker' who variously 'described [jihadi training] camps in Syria, Iraq and possibly the former Soviet bloc where attackers are trained to target the West. ' 18 'And possibly' seems a very generous way of putting an insinuation that is not backed up anywhere in the remaining text of the piece; and the fingering of 'the former Soviet bloc' gives the game away nicely. Scanning through the roll- ...

... probably spooks, and are thus worth killing. This book (400 plus large, trade format pages) is constructed from Cockburn's original dispatches, plus notes and diary entries from the war zones as he followed the consequences of the American foreign policy in the Middle East and Afghanistan. The chapters follow the chronology: the imposition of sanctions on Iraq (and about one millions deaths as a result; a UN-sanctioned atrocity); the invasion of Afghanistan and the initial overthrow of the Taliban; the American-led assault on Iraq in 2003 and the ensuing civil war; the overthrow of Gaddafi and ensuing civil war; the attempt to do the same in Syria and ensuing ...

... wasn't that. Crozier never took the Trot groups seriously: his eye was firmly fixed on the Soviet 'threat'.) The rest of the book is mostly chapters about specific events in the Thatcher period. Some are familiar – the miners' strike; nukes civil and military; the deaths of Hilda Murrell and Willie McRae; arms for Iraq. These later chapters are less error-strewn (though no better sourced) than his account of the 1974-79 period, perhaps because the material is less complex. When he strays off familiar territory it goes wrong. He has a short chapter on mind control, for example, which in ten pages, citing only three ...

More recently we have seen such responses to both the British debacle in Aden and the considerably more momentous US defeat in Vietnam. And today such a myth is already under construction with regard to the Iraq War. So much was ...
