James Rusbridger

James Rusbridger died in 1994.

The following is taken from:

His excellent book "The Intelligence Game" has been the main source for a lot of the stories that have been featured in the SPIES 'R' US section of Eat The Rich, including:-

The Hilda Murrel Story, detailing MI5's role in the murder of a little old lady whose sole crime was to show concern for the environment.

The CIA Middle East car bomb, where the CIA detonated a car bomb in a packed Middle Eastern street killing 80, and maiming a further 200.

The failed Mossad plan to bomb London, where they hoped to leave enough forensic evidence to blame the Arabs, thereby ruining British-Syrian relations.

And also, the Madeline Haigh story, detailing how a housewife found herself on MI5's subversive list after writing a letter, expressing concern of the siting of American missiles in the UK, to her local newspaper, and also detailing an exact list of just exactly who the Security Services keep files on.

Not surprisingly, in view of the material he was publishing, his death was shrouded in mysterious circumstances.

I haven't been able to dig much up on this, as I was completely unaware of this until a few weeks ago. But apparently he was discovered hanging from the rafters of his cottage in Cornwall, wearing a gas mask, and oilskins, shortly after talking to journalists investigating the 1992 General Election results. He was of particular interest in their investigation into the alleged rigging of the 1992 Election, after going on the record as saying that MI5 routinely trace the voters of extremist candidates, by matching the ballot papers to the voter registration numbers on their stubs.

The official verdict, unsurprisingly, was suicide.

Quite why a suicidal man would dress up in oilskins and a gasmask when hanging himself is anyones guess.

The whole thing stinks of an MI5 murder to me, the gas mask, and oilskins being key pointers. It looks like someone was trying to say that he was "dirty and smelly".

Nevertheless, the fact of the matter remains that whilst the good guys are one man down, James Rusbridger lives on in his excellent book, "The Intelligence Game", which is available from all good bookshops, and public libraries.

I'd strongly reccomend you read it. It's excellent stuff, it really is.

P.S. If you're a businessman staying in Britain for important business matters, it might be a good idea to stay away from Claridges. Apparently it's bugged from top to bottom!

Security services reportedly involved in carrying out bombings in Turkey

Turkey, November 2005:

A bomb went off in a bookstore in Semdinli. Local people broke into the car used to transport the bombers. The occupants of the vehicle turned out to be three Turkish black-op sergeants from the Turkish Intelligence Service. The vehicle was found to belong to the Turkish security forces: Special Operation Team. Automatic weapons, death lists and a map pinpointing the bombed bookstore were found in the vehicle.

The locals found one of the sergeant's military ID. The sergeants were taken by the local police to the local prosecutor. They confessed that they had carried out the attack on the bookstore, which killed one person.They also confessed that they had carried out the bomb attack on 1 November outside a military residency in the city that injured 23 people, among them 3 Turkish police officers, 4 Turkish soldiers and 16 Kurdish civilians.

In 1996 there was a similar case in Turkey: the Susurluk case. A car accident revealed a "wanted" hit man was in the same car with those who were supposed to bring the man to the justice. 14 people including special police teams were brought to court.

Xymphora comments:

It is relatively rare for these black operations to be caught, which may explain why it is so difficult to convince people of how common they are. This is exactly what happened to the two British soldiers in Basra who were caught red-handed trying to create some atrocity which would then be blamed on Iranians or al-Qaeda or local insurgents or whatever group the British had decided to defame.

According to Reuters:

On 10 November 2005 the Turkish media reported that Turkey's security forces appeared to be involved in the bombing of a bookstore in the country's troubled southeast which almost led to their lynching by an angry crowd.

Wednesday's bomb blast in the town of Semdinli near the Iraqi border on Wednesday killed one person and a second was shot dead amid two days of violent protests by local people triggered by the explosion.

"A dark incident," said the top-selling Hurriyet daily in a banner headline, saying suspicions that the security forces were acting outside the law had rattled the Turkish state.

Justice Minister Cemil Cicek vowed to uncover what exactly had happened but urged Turks to await the results of an official investigation.

"We have the political determination to deal with this issue," Cicek said in televised remarks.

Newspapers said three suspects detained by police after their near-lynching had turned out to be intelligence agents of the gendarmerie, a paramilitary body under civilian supervision which is charged with looking after security in rural areas.

The men were quoted as saying they had been passing through the town by chance when the explosion had occurred and the crowd turned on them.

But the newspapers said police had found in the men's car three Kalashnikov assault rifles, two grenades, a detailed map of the province and a map pinpointing the bombed bookstore.

A national police spokesman in the capital Ankara said on Friday police were still holding one suspect over the incident and were examining weapons found at the scene.

Spokesman Ismail Caliskan gave no further details but he urged local citizens not to take the law into their own hands.

"We do not want our public to be provoked. We want them to show commonsense and await the results of the probe," he said.

On Thursday, demonstrators set fire to a police checkpoint, erected barricades and pulled down powerlines in Semdinli in protest against the bombing.

Edelman, Turkey...

An excerpt from 5 November 2005:

"According to FBI sources, Edelman used his position as ambassador to Turkey to cement a triad of weapons and drug smuggling and money laundering involving Turks, Israelis, and Americans.

"The CIA and US Customs Service busted one nuclear smuggling ring involving South African-Israeli national Asher Karni, a Pakistani businessman named Humayun Khan, and a Turkish Jew with strong Israeli ties named Zeki Bilmen.

"The smuggling network involved companies in Cape Town; Secaucus, New Jersey; and Islamabad, Pakistan. Karni was convicted by a US court for smuggling nuclear triggers to Pakistan via South Africa.

"The identification of Edelman in the Libby indictment as one of those possibly involved in the outing of a CIA agent and a covert company bears directly on the use of Turkey as a major facilitator in the trafficking of WMD components, particularly to the AQ Khan network in Pakistan..."
