31. The Road to 9/11, reviewed [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... Contents| Next Issue 54 The Road to 9/11: Wealth, Empire, and the Future of America Peter Dale Scott London and Berkeley: University of California Press, 2007, prices in the UK from £16.95 The first third of this book, 120 pages or so, is part parapolitical and part deep history of America from Nixon to Ronald Reagan's first election victory. Crudely summarised, Scott shows the rise of the Pentagon and its industrial allies and political front men (almost entirely men). Recovering from the set-backs of Watergate, failure in Vietnam and associated revelations and Congressional enquiries, they revived the Cold War with Soviet Union Team B and the Committee on the ...

... is for you. For me, life is too short and the agenda too full to be bothered wrestling with it. Notes For example David C. Martin's 1980 Wilderness of Mirrors. This may not have been the real reason for his ouster. Angleton was also the liaison between the CIA and Israel and during the 1973 Arab-Israeli war, Nixon and Kissinger tried to 'tilt' American foreign policy away from its unconditional support for Israel. To do so in the longer term they may have felt it necessary to get another liaison with Israeli intelligence. Last| Contents| Next ...

33. Robert Kennedy and the Middle East connection [Lobster #51 (Summer 2006)]
... : Vision, 2003) The well-documented rise of the neo-cons has highlighted again a seemingly enduring feature of what Peter Dale Scott has labelled 'deep politics': the ability of a small, deter-mined clique to seize control of vital aspects of US national policy, particularly in affairs concerning the Middle East. But the neo-cons – rising to prominence under Nixon and the bane of Kissinger – have a perhaps neglected provenance in the administration of Lyndon Johnson. The crippling of the 455-foot USS Liberty, a SIGINT intelligence vessel run jointly by the US navy and the NSA, in a sustained two hour attack by Israeli bombers and torpedo craft at the height of the 1967 Middle East war, is ...

... Komer suggesting it, and Komer is unlikely to have done so without having spoken to Colby. In any case, Colby resigned from CIA, avoiding Angleton's mole hunt, and went back to Vietnam. At this point political consid-erations at the highest level came into play. Colby, a self-described liberal, had a fortuitous personal connection with Richard Nixon. (Colby's son was the roommate of Tricia Nixon's fiancé, Edward Cox, who in 1970 was Jonathan Colby's best man.) This became useful when Nixon was elected to the presidency. Colby succeeded Komer as head of CORDS. Consolation prize Colby suddenly returned to Washington and the CIA in June 1971. He wrote in Honorable Men ...

35. Ultimate Sacrifice (Book review) [Lobster #51 (Summer 2006)]
... at the time, at any rate within Washingto. But as the authors show repeatedly, the operation was leaking like a sieve from the anti-Castro Cuban end; and the anti-Castro Cubans were awash in American money and case officers. The politicians may not have known but I would bet the CIA and the military did. Robert Kennedy played the Nixon role in the original Bay of Pigs plan: he was the White House action officer. The Kennedys had good reason for doing something: a Presidential election was due in 1964 and they knew that if they didn't 'resolve' the Cuban situation their Republican opponents would use it against them. There can't have been much above 'Cuba' on ...

... feminism, by new sexual freedom and a permissive attitude towards drugs, the Republicans gained support from social conservatives and the evangelicals began what they saw as a crusade against godless hedonism and flagrant disregard for the divine law. Like the Birchers, evangelicals flocked to Goldwater's disastrous Presidential campaign in 1964. In 1968 they came out in large numbers for Nixon, the man who seemed to champion the godly 'silent majority' against the long-hairs, hippies and freaks who opposed the war in Vietnam and wanted America to take her clothes off. The spectacular collapse of the Nixon presidency in 1974 led to victory for the born-again Jimmy Carter in 1976, but by 1980 the evangelicals who had strongly supported ...

37. Mark Felt, Jason Blair and 'Misty Beethoven' [Lobster #50 (Winter 2005/6)]
... 2]) For his efforts in this arena, Felt was indicted for 'conspiring to injure and oppress citizens of the United States'. (He was eventually convicted, slapped smartly on wrist, and fined.) It would appear, then, that Throat was not so much opposed to illicit break-ins and eavesdropping as he was to the Nixon Administration as such. In his June 2 article in the Post, outing his source, Woodward tells us that Felt regarded the Nixon White House as 'corrupt...sinister (a) cabal'. And this was before Watergate. Indeed, lest we miss the point, Woodward tells us that 'Felt thought the Nixon team were ...

... like a delighted child. 'Great, George,' I said. 'This is a huge help.' He was genuinely happy. But after the Eagleton affair – it was revealed McGovern's choice for vice president, Thomas Eagleton, had received shock treatments for depression and resigned from the ticket – and McGovern's disastrous defeat at the hands of Richard Nixon, I took my family and escaped to Barbados, to teach at the University of the West Indies. While there, I wrote an Op Ed piece called 'Hailu and the Very Old Lion', about an Ethiopian laborer who had moved all my furniture himself, and who had stood in front of Haile Sellassie's pet lion as it ...

... after 1945 setting out his own opinions about Churchill, Roosevelt and US policy pre-1941 would have led to some awkward debate about the priorities of the Kennedy clan and could have detracted from Joseph's political ambitions for JFK and RFK. A detailed comparison of how the Kennedys generally wished to balance US domestic and international priorities, versus the balance sought by Nixon, Reagan and others, might well have provided readers of the Matthew Smith book with some material to flesh out his otherwise over simple conclusions. It is remarkable that a book as good as that written by Bryan Clough should only appear through a minor publisher. Notes [1] There is a theory that Kent had begun working for ...

Watergate: why Spencer Oliver's phone was tapped When the Nixon White House 'plumbers' broke into the Watergate offices of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) they placed taps on two phones. One was Larry O'Brien's. This was intelligible: O'Brien was a big Washington operator who knew a lot, including the then not public information that Howard Hughes had helped Nixon by bailing-out Nixon's brother's restaurant business. ...
