61. The View From The Bridge [Lobster #29 (Jun 1995)]
... This is simply a complicated scheme to defraud the British tax-payer. Re-reading some of the cuttings, a little bell rang in my brain: I'd seen something like this in Anthony Verrier's book. There it is on p. 255. Describing the British 'attempt to sustain counter-revolution in Arabia', Verrier notes that SIS opposed it 'because, all other factors apart, it degenerated into a matter of bribes to the wrong people - 30 million, to be exact, laundered through the Colonial Development and Welfare Acts, then handed out to tribal rulers on both sides of the border [between South Arabia and Yemen]. ' (Through the Looking Glass ...

... able to 'secure a new code and order in Germany and even a new constitution', and he received 'a Royal invitation to parley'. (63) The approach to Goering failed because the British did not receive the commitment they wanted to the removal of Hitler. Talks with the Generals suffered a hiatus, as well, when two SIS officers who had been negotiating on the government's behalf were seized at Venlo in the Netherlands. Hitler put out the story that the SIS had been behind a bomb explosion at the Munich beer hall where he had launched his attempted 1923 putsch. (64) Nevertheless, discussions with the Generals and with the Goerdeler group were resumed at the ...

63. Asil Nadir: another victim of the arms-to-Iraq conspiracy? (Winter 2013) [Lobster #66 (Winter 2013) (free)] [Free Article]
... . At the core of the arms trade with Iraq was a company called Allivane International. On the Jancom site is an affidavit by an Allivane director, 'Witness statement by Terence Byrne Senior', which confirms some of the general allegations in the putative CIA document. Most controversially that document claims that Stephan Kock, using named former SAS and SIS personnel, murdered four people, including Gerald Bull and the journalist Jonathan Moyle. The unredacted CIA document was first referred to in the English language Turkish newspaper Cumhuriyet. Asil Nadir sheltered in his native Turkish-controlled Northern Cyprus between 1993 and 2010 as a fugitive from British justice. In her 2006 online memoir Naked Spygirl,2 Olivia ...

64. Feedback [Lobster #52 (Winter 2006/7)]
... ? Coup plots had been tried before and failed since the resistance was penetrated by the SS (and in some cases it was the SS, as shown by Schellenberg's constant dickering with the allies and Himmler's attempt to seize power at the end of the war). The British and Americans could never be sure who they were talking to: SIS had had its fingers badly burned in the Venlo episode of November 1939 when what looked like a bona fide coup against Hitler turned into a massive embarrassment, with the British agents who were negotiating with the 'resistance' being carted off to imprisonment in Germany. SIS did provide some logistical support to the plotters at times (even the 20 ...

... the rudiments of a conversation and, following the example of Thucydides, "I put into the mouth of each speaker the sentiments proper to the occasion, expressed as I thought he would be likely to express them." ' In fact there is a quite an interesting account here, not only of the business of being an agent for SIS - presumably it is SIS, though other agencies are possible; and the author never quite resolves this - but also of the University of Aberystwyth, its MOD-funded Strategic Studies Department, and the recruitment of its students. Moyle went to Aberystwyth, were he was a little prig. Offered a joint, he researched which students ...

... anti-communist activities.(70) IRD eventually had representatives in all British Embassies abroad. In the recollection of a former MI6 officer of the period, IRD was involved in 'some of the more dubious intelligence operations which characterised the early years of the cold war. '( 71) Former Ambassador Hilary King was told by a former SIS officer who had worked in Germany after the war trying to estimate Soviet bloc tank strength, that IRD circulated a paper on the subject over-estimating that strength by a factor of 40.(72) When the SIS officer complained about the inaccuracy of the estimate he was told by an IRD official 'what does it matter old boy ...

67. Briefly [Lobster #36 (Winter 1998/9)]
... , London, 1998, 18.99 The agent in question was Elliott's father, Kavan, about whom Elliott knew very little until he began to research his life. The result is very interesting indeed: part biography, part autobiography, part history, and part historical travelogue through the countries of Central Europe in which Elliott's father worked for SIS and SOE before, during and after the war. Almost incidentally there are interesting snippets about SIS people and operations - but that isn't the focus of the book. In trying to recreate his father, Elliot has written an acutely evocative portrait of a certain kind of Englishness, found in the fading years of Empire, that peculiar mixture ...

... to), to emerge, born again, free of sanctions, as a responsible, respectable member of the international community, bla bla bla. And so the Islamic Fighting Group, our former enemy's enemy, is our enemy. Libya's new status as 'friend' is visible elsewhere. Con Coughlin, often a guide to the thinking within SIS, commented in The Sunday Telegraph, 'Ratcheting up to the next war' on 9 October, on the British policy of 'kow-towing to the Iranians'. Wrote Coughlin: 'As part of this policy, the British government took the shameful decision to drop its claim that the Iranians had masterminded the Lockerbie bombing.... ...

' This may or may not be so; but it is virtually guaranteed to be so if the legislators refuse to talk to those with knowledge of 'improper deeds'. As for the British system: with SIS, the authors tell us: 'a Foreign Office advisor....runs the rule over proposed operations before they are mounted or - if they are particularly sensitive - submitted to the foreign secretary for approval.
