What is the extent of CIA influence in the UK?

The Mail, 6 September 2008, has a story by Jason Lewis entitled 'CIA helped draw up dodgy Iraq war dossier for No 10'

John Scarlett produced the dodgy dossier on Iraq.

Scarlett is now chief of Britain's MI6, but when the dossier was written he was chairman of the UK Government's Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC).

According to The Mail, when Scarlett wrote the dossier, he had the help of a foreign spy agency.

This agency, according to sources, was the CIA.

The dossier contained false claims that Saddam could launch weapons of mass destruction ‘within 45 minutes’ and that it was ‘beyond doubt’ that he was developing nuclear weapons.

What is the extent of CIA control over the UK?

William Jardine had an interest in heroin

Did the CIA take over the Lockerbie enquiry and the Lockerbie trial?

The following comes from The Scotsman: (Http:// )

"THE CIA is alleged to have set up a protected drug route from Europe to the United States - called Operation Corea - which allowed Syrian drug dealers to ship heroin to the US using Pan Am flights...

"The American intelligence officers on Pan Am 103 - Matthew Gannon and Major Charles McKee - had found out about it, and were on their way to Washington to tell their superiors..."

Reportedly, a number of important people were warned not to fly on the PanAm 103 flight which came down over Lockerbie.

According to The Scotsman (Http:// ):

"A 23-strong South African delegation, headed by foreign minister, Pik Botha, cancelled a booking on the flight at short notice. There was also a last-minute change of travel plan by the UN Commissioner for Namibia, Bernt Carlsson."

"Washington knew enough to put up notices in its Moscow embassy warning personnel not to travel on Pan Am flights, to withdraw the South African general staff - Generals Van Tonder and Malan, Rusty Evans and Pik Botha - and advise personnel from the American army of the Rhine not to travel..."

Presumably, the CIA did not warn Major Charles McKee.

The CIA seemed to know approximately when and where PanAm Flight 103 was going to come down.

Tam Dalyell wrote in The Scotsman:

'Within an hour of Pan Am 103 crashing on Lockerbie, on a point of order, I interrupted House of Commons routine business to ask for a statement. Simultaneously, by helicopter, American personnel were arriving on the scene, and were soon to take over..."



In the 1960's, leading CIA agent James Angleton was worried about Harold Wilson and his links to Eastern European businessmen who might have had links to Russia and Israel.

An Israeli spy had suggested that Labour leader Gaitskell had been murdered by the KGB so that Wilson could become PM.

In 1965 Angleton, and President Johnson, decided to commission a report on Britain's secret services.

This report recommended sending more spies to Britain.

It seemed that the CIA was going to treat Britain like Indonesia or Pakistan.

In order to ensure that there was an elite which would support US interests, the CIA would try to gain control of MI5 and MI6, use dirty tricks to get rid of anti-American politicians, and place pro-American puppets into positions of power.

In 1996, in the Guardian, Martin Kettle suggested that New Labour was all about Britain being in with the Americans.

In a talk to Labour Party branches in 1996, Robin Ramsay (Lobster Magazine) pointed out some interesting links between New labour and the USA.

Jonathan Powell, Blair's top man in Downing Street, used to work in Britain's Washington embassy and is suspected by some of having been our spook liaising with the CIA.

Top Blair aid David Milliband did a degree at the USA's MIT and Brown's top aid Edward Balls went to Harvard.

Gordon Brown spent his holidays in the library at Harvard.

The US encouraged large numbers of Labour MPs to take free trips to America (Israel also invited a large number of Labour MPs to Israel).

In 1986 Tony Blair went on a US-sponsored trip to America and came back a supporter of the nuclear deterrent.

In 1993 Blair attended a Bilderberg Group meeting (secretive right wing organisation) and not long afterwards became Labour leader.

Four of the Blair cabinet have been members of the Anglo-American elite group the British American Project; three of the Blair cabinet have attended Bilderberg meetings.

Peter Mandelson become Chair of British Youth Council which began as the British section of the World Assembly of Youth, which was set up and financed by MI6 and then taken over by the CIA in the 1950s.

By Mandelson's time in the mid1970s the British Youth Council was said to be financed by the Foreign Office or MI6. According to Ramsay, 'Peter Mandelson has been around MI6 since his early 20s'.

Old Labour is the domestic economy; New Labour is the overseas British economy. In other words, the multinationals, the City of London, and the Foreign Office which represents their interests.'


The British American Project for the Successor Generation appears to be a CIA sponsored organisation.
