... Stansfield Turner (Rhodes Scholar 1947), is Security and Democracy: the CIA in transition. And a new blockbuster is on the way from Anthony Summers, he of File on the Czar and Conspiracy fame. Friends in High Places: the Bechtel Story by McCartney. (See Mother Jones, June 1984) for Bechtel's relevance to the Reagan regime, and earlier periods in the Middle East .. . and Citizen Hughes: how Howard Hughes tried to buy America - by Drosnin, already partly serialised in Playboy (Sept/Oct 1984) and recently in the Sunday Times colour supplement. It seems that Hughes' power extends beyond the grave in as much as Hughes so ...

... , was released within hours to continue trafficking, even as the FBI watched'. Suppose the documents on Blandon and his Nicaraguan mentor Norwin Meneses, an even bigger drug trafficker and Contra supporter, had been released in the 1980s instead of now. Critics alleging a Contra-drug link would have been proven right, and the CIA's and Reagan Administration's routine denials exposed. The Contras might not have received another nickel. Thus the Administration, instead of arresting Meneses and Blandon, protected them. Later, Blandon became a DEA informant, and apparently so did Meneses. Webb claims that in the mid-1980s, the flow of cocaine from Blandon to L.A . crack ...

33. Magazines/Articles [Lobster #8 (Jun 1985)]
... deception. These academics are always either surprised or shocked to discover that American politicians are inclined to shoot the messenger bearing the bad news and, as a result, the intelligence agencies do their best to bring only good news. (Which is usually inaccurate.) About the only interesting sections in this piece are those describing the way the Reagan administration has taken the logical step of trying to get the intelligence agencies to produce proof' of their various conspiracy theories about the world. The logic of Goodman's article appears to be that what the US intelligence service needs is a bunch of Marxists to do its analyses for it. With the US empire in decline, a Marxist perspective ...

... and finance the casinos, the casinos themselves generated enormous profits. With the tax on gambling never rising much above 6%, they could hardly avoid doing so. With profits of 30-50%, double the profit of even the most successful business, Vegas became a cash-cow like no other. Every President from Truman to Reagan either visited Vegas to raise campaign funds or was politically and financially indebted to the people who ran Vegas. Paul Laxalt, one of only two republican Senate gains in the year after Watergate, had been a long-time defender of casino interests in the state. He was the first to form a Citizens for Reagan Committee, later ...

35. Lying about Iraq [Lobster #45 (Summer 2003)]
... CIA were useless because there were no weapons of mass destruction to be found but this could not be admitted as it would stymie the planned war and the agency was unwilling to openly oppose the government. Cooking' intelligence Cooking', i.e . falsifying intelligence is not something new. Robert Baer, quoted above, referred to the Reagan administration's campaign against Libya's Colonel Gadafy. It goes back further than that. The intelligence on the strength of the Vietcong was faked to make the case for war more plausible. CIA analyst Sam Adams published a piece in Harper's, in May 1975, describing the way the military had ignored his estimates of the strength of the Vietcong; ...

... (A private intelligence agency, something like our Economic League). Western Goals was headed by Larry McDonald, the Chairman of the John Birch Society. McDonald subsequently died in KAL 007. Larry Flynt suggests in his Hustler piece that KAL 007 was sent into Soviet airspace precisely in the hope that it would get shot down and rid the Reagan administration of an embarrassing individual - Larry McDonald. (The source of the embarrassment is detailed below.) Flynt's hypothesis seems implausible (there are easier ways to kill people) but, as Flynt points out, Howard Hunt's wife, Dorothy, was killed in a plane crash during the Watergate mess in very peculiar circumstances.

... of Bush 2's foreign wars. He quotes from a Kirkpatrick essay of 1984, during which she muses that in the cool, reassuring plans of our founding fathers, informed by history and inspired by a passion for freedom, idealism and realism were closely interwoven'. Subsequently, as Grandin remarked in an interview, ( [5 ] ) Reagan was to elevate the Contras - the Nicaraguan anti-communist paramilitaries - into the moral equivalents of the US founding fathers'. Readers will have to decide on Grandin's case for the continuity of US policy against those who defend the recycled Reaganites as reformed and newly progressive. His latest book is essential reading, though, for the activist ...

Unclassified was founded by David McMichael as the organ of the Association of National Security Alumni after he had resigned from the CIA over its politicisation under Ronald Reagan.

... ), and the Warsaw Pact. By 1949, with Europe divided into two camps and both the USA and the USSR embarked on a nuclear arms race, the Cold War was under way. It might therefore be supposed that Kennan was a supporter of the Vietnam War, of the neo-Conservative revolution in foreign policy which began with Reagan, and maybe even of the recent war against Iraq. In fact since 1950 his has been one of the leading dissident voices in US foreign policy. For over 50 years Kennan has argued that his policy was distorted and transformed into a monster. It was indeed his intention to focus on the long-term strategic danger presented to ...

... 39%, the USA 30%. What is not clearly articulated in this book is the world view that Brown, Blair and the various other UK politicians like them follow. This appears to be the same as the outlook many demoralised US and Australian leftists and centre-leftists adopted in the 80s after the seemingly invincible triumph of the Reagan-Thatcher agenda. Namely: Support of the middle classes is critical at every level. Therefore direct personal taxes can never be raised. The media are too powerful to challenge. Therefore flatter them, give them good stories ( 'briefing', spinning' etc ) and allow them a deregulated area in the market place in which ...
