11. Letter from Fred Holroyd to The Guardian [Lobster #16 (Jun 1988)]
... Guardian This is the text of a letter The Guardian declined to print It was sent from Fred Holroyd on May 13th 1987 Dear sir, It comes as no surprise that Mrs Thatcher over reacted to the media attempting to discover the real facts of the Gibraltar shootings. Her attitude is vulnerable to close scrutiny, especially in the two areas of SAS operational deployment and the ethics of soldiering. Recently Mr Ken Livingstone MP asked the Prime Minister details of a unit of Royal Engineers which operated in Northern Ireland in the 1970s in the Armagh area. The written reply which Mr Livingstone received was, I believe, a deliberate attempt to deceive the House of Commons. Mr Roger Freeman replied ...

The author's taped and transcribed memories are intercut with sections from an uncredited ghost writer - apparently Nick Davies, the Maxwell-arms dealing version, not the investigative journalist - on the general political background. The central allegations come ...

... sugar and bauxite. That was a busy year. The elected nationalist government in Iran met the same fate; claiming ownership of the nation's oil resources was beyond the pale.(24) British governments supported repression and killing in Uganda, Chile and South Africa. In Vietnam in the 1960s, unknown to Parliament and the public, British SAS troops fought alongside American "special forces". ' Pilger's footnote refers the reader to a section of William Blum's The CIA: a Forgotten History, on the Iran coup. But what are the 'official records' which tell us about 'British and CIA terrorism' in British Guiana in 1953? My initial reaction to this was, I ...

... church, hospitalising fourteen of them in the process. He transferred to Special Branch early in 1979, joining E4, the department specialising in surveillance, as a detective inspector. From the beginning, he wanted to put the organisation on a more military footing and was always concerned to work as closely as possible with the Army, particularly the SAS. Phoenix, we are told, favoured 'a more aggressive counter-terror policy'. By then the security forces' surveillance methods were so effective that they had accurate profiles of the PIRA's main activists and forewarning of many of their operations. Operation Judy, the Loughall ambush of 7 May 1987 in which eight PIRA volunteers were killed ...

... at Lisburn, Craig Smellie, and a complete office at Laneside, and reported directly to Century House (ie MI6 London base) When MI5 gained control of the overall intelligence operation they tried to replace those who were already in key posts with others with total loyalty to them. For example, in 1974 there was an attempt to use SAS personnel to replace the normal Army SMIU men.* This was a total disaster. Not only did MI5 have much less experience of running agents in a hostile environment than SIS, the SAS at that time had no experience of Northern Ireland-type operations - they had been prohibited from taking an active part (officially at least) ...

... specialist saw him go to Military Operations at the War Office after Malaya, with a brief that covered Aden, Kuwait and the Oman. He was involved in establishing an internal security headquarters in Aden, where the political situation was already deteriorating. This failed to prevent Britain's most humiliating postwar defeat. He was also involved in setting up an SAS operation against insurgents in Oman in 1958-59, an operation that arguably saved the SAS from disbandment. Certainly this is what Kitson believed. (6 ) In 1962 he took part in peace-keeping operations in Cyprus, which involved close contact with former EOKA fighters. In his account of this episode, he discusses EOKA campaigns ...

... , 2006, pp. 173-191) As with the Taliban, these Saudi-al-Qaida links had their origins in the CIA's covert war against the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan from 1980. Despite a concerted media campaign, in the UK to deny this, the evidence suggests that British mercenaries recruited through the 23rd Airborne, territorial SAS (otherwise known as R-Squadron) played a major role in this campaign and especially in training future Taliban and al- Qaida. (Carew, 2001) Much of what we know of this campaign comes from the publication of the memoir of one of the British soldiers involved, Philip Anthony Sessargo (writing as Tom Carew) ...

... The phone had been cut off. Four well-dressed young men were seen leaving the house. The weapon used and the manner of execution were totally at odds with the usual Loyalist killing methods. Bernadette Devlin McAliskey, along with Costello, founder member of the IRSP, suggested at the time that the killing bore the characteristics of an SAS-style operation. In June John Turnly, a leading member of the Republican Irish Independent Party and a former SDLP member, was shot nine times in front of his Japanese wife Myoko and their two children, as he arrived to address a meeting in the village of Canrough, County Antrim. The true significance of this episode became ...
