51. Decoding Edward Jay Epstein's 'LEGEND' [Lobster #2 (Nov 1983)]
... the editor warned of the abandonment of Israel (12); and Israel was presented as America's only reliable ally in a Middle East threatened by Soviet expansionism (13). (This had always been Angleton's view and the reason for his support of Israel.) By 1979 Commentary had become a full-blown neo-Conservative pro-Reagan platform: the editor, Norman Podhoretz, had even seen the prospect of the 'Finlandisation of America' lurking behind detente. (14). Along the way two books had a particular impact. One was Alan Weinstein's Perjury, a study of the Hiss case, which concluded that, after all, he had indeed been guilty. ...

52. Holding pattern (2015) [Lobster #69 (Summer 2015) (free)] [Free Article]
... ever- excellent Consortium News. It turns out that Mr Murdoch was schmoozed into participating in a CIA 'perception management' operation in 1983, the object of which was to provide support for Ronald Reagan's obsession with 'protecting' Central America in general and Nicaragua in particular – 'America's backyard', in the parlance of the day. Messrs Murdoch and Reagan first met on 18 January 1983, just five days after Reagan had been informed by lawyers that (since Congress would quite obviously never approve it) the project would need private funding. It's not clear how much money Mr Murdoch doled out to his patron's pet projects, but subsequent developments show clearly how Reagan's White House manipulated events to ...

... operations that were blatantly illegal, not to mention immoral. (2 ) In a few instances this aid may have been provided solely for financial or narrow political gain, but in most cases it also resulted from a convergence of the rightist political aims of both the 'private' groups and factions within the national security apparatus created by President Ronald Reagan and his advisors. Among the groups that have participated in these activities are the World Anti-Communist League (WACL), the Air Commando Association (ACA), the National Defense Council (NDC), Refugee Relief International (RRI), Civilian Military/Material Assistance (CMA), and Sun-Myung Moon's cultic Unification ...

A renewed arms race was proposed by a number of strategic analysts, notably Colin S. Gray, who were writing in the late 1970s and early 80s. ...

55. A conversation with Peter Dale Scott [Lobster #7 (Feb 1985)]
... a case for both sides but I will only respect those assessments of Kennedy which make a distinction between the man who was elected to office - and I have few good things to say about him; he was a regular Cold Warrior who came in with a 'missile gap' threat, who was going to do a lot of the things Reagan has done - and the Kennedy who had been to the brink in the Cuban Missile Crisis and had had to think about what it really meant to use nuclear weapons as a threat against a nuclear power. The only Kennedy I find interesting - indeed, this is true of both the brothers - is that year, after the Missile ...

In this limited sense Crewe and King are right to say the social democrats 'no longer had a programme and a theory of how the world worked'. The view from Washington Viewed from across the Atlantic this crisis within Britain was viewed with great 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 ...

... of Carter, having been elected by the Evangelicals for his first term, I realized that when he refused to endorse anti-abortion measures or come out against separation of church and state, or refused to invite Evangelicals to the White House, that he was not going to go to bat for us. '( [18] ) Reagan, unlike Carter, hadn't been born again, and so in evangelical terms wasn't strictly speaking a Christian. (He was also keen on astrology, which is frowned on in evangelical circles in the normal run of things). Nevertheless Reagan appreciated the value of the evangelical vote and recognised that Falwell's organisation Moral Majority could deliver. At ...

... in the Iran- Contra Affair. In 1983, Margaret Thatcher was returned to office with an increased majority only because of the Falklands' War. But victory in that war carried a price. Britain won the Falklands War because of signals intelligence provided by the CIA from its listening posts in Pinochet's Chile. As payback, US President Ronald Reagan expected the British to involve themselves in covert support to the Contra terrorists in Nicaragua. Part of Britain's support for the Contras involved a private security firm called KMS, based in the South of England, and run by a former SAS Officer and Tory councillor. According to Granada TV's World-in-Action, this was the British ...

... of conspiracy theory beyond a complex form of real-world Cluedo, into a genuinely useful forum for political analysis. His thesis is a development from two other books of his: Cocaine Politics: Drugs, Armies and the CIA in Central America;(2 ) and The Iran-Contra Connection: Secret Teams and Covert Operations in the Reagan Era.(3 ) Scott effectively had the story documented three years before the recent 'revelations' by a San José newspaper that clients of the CIA had been allowed to introduce crack cocaine into black neighbourhoods in California. These are 'revelations' which make the FBI's COINTELPRO look like hi-jinks, and it is Scott's hope that by ...

I thought I remembered this quite well; but had forgotten what my student's research showed, which was the public reception of this document – it was massively favourable and stimulated real interest and activity throughout 'Big Society'. Yet it was shelved, indeed marginalised by Mrs Thatcher, who, along with President Reagan, successfully pushed the advanced industrial states to take the free market rather than the Keynesian approach to global development advocated by Brandt. The new line, the foundation of what later became known as the Washington Consensus, was announced at the 1981 Cancun summit. Reading this and noting the very considerable support shown for Brandt in the opinion polls ...
