Great read. And the Angleton “memorial “ in Israel brings it home.

JJ Angleton was given Khrushchev's “Secret Speech” of 1956 denouncing Stalin's crimes by Mossad officer E.L, something that strengthened Angleton's position in CIA. There was a quid pro quo. In the late 1960s an officer on the Iraqi Mukhabarat. A. A. A. fell in love with E.L.'s niece S.L. who was studying at Oxford, UK. A. A. A. also despised antisemitism. In 1970 in Venna Frenchman Jean Giles Malliarakis led an effort to set up a Black Internationale, with financing by Saddam Hussein, who had dispatched his then Mukhabarat chief. Dr Fadhil Al Barak. A. A. A. gave us a full report on the Vienna Congress, which I believed was filed, as we were then more preoccupied with the far -left terrorism of the Rote Armee Fraktion, the Brigate Rosse and Action Directe. Another case of not being able to walk and chew gum at the same time. A. A. A. was gunned down on the eve of the 1st Gulf War outside Charles De Gaulle airport Terminal near Paris as the Mukhabarat had found out how we got the report on the Black Internationale meeting. The murder was not reported in the media. The effort to create a Black Internationale has resumed and one participant is American Rinaldo Nazzaro; of Atomwaffen/The Base, who is based in Russia.

I almost lost track but then it became clear. It’s on going.

Ike told me he was irate when he found out that CIA had not warned him in time of the Israeli nuclear program carried out with the help of the French, essentially in Dimona, after an agreement signed with minister Bourges-Maunoury. Allen Dulles blamed the snafu on Angleton who was very chummy with the Israelis, notably David Kimche. French-Israeli cooperation on a military nuclear program continued until 1967, when De Gaulle, who had also been misinformed, put an end to it after the 1967 war.

French-Israeli nuclear cooperation was based on the same delusional theory, as invoked in the Suez war, that Algeria's war of independence would not have occurred without Nasser and Egypt. I wonder what Guy Mollet and the other French Socialists would have said if they had found out that Ike had been supplying arms to the Algerians through Egypt, agreeing on the type and quantities of weapons Egypt would deliver, which were paid with US money, unknown to John Foster Dulles. I had known about it from Ike but was not allowed to talk about it until Prof Irwin M Wall of UCAL Berkeley found about it through a FOIA request. See his book, "France, the United States and the Algerian War," UCAL Press 2003. More details in my forthcoming "Enter The Third Murderer".
