    I recommend the book "Operation Brogue" which details the UK Deep State's war against Charles Haughey, probably the greatest leader in ROI history.

    Capt Feehan wrote this Book in regret of his writing of Operation Brogue.

    That Book describes that but thru the Eyes of the Author.

    It's a very small Book- a little Handbook, 106 Pages but only about 100 readable

    Only £2.71 on Amazon

    I can find very little on these books on the web

    From the amazon.com description
    (This book examines the political life of Charles J. Haughey and questions the role played by the British Secret Service in a campaign of denigration against him believed to have been given the code-name OPERATION BROGUE.
    It looks at the reasons why the British would want to destroy Mr Haughey in the context of their military needs to extend their strategic influence throughout the Republic.
    It explores the danger posed to these British strategic interests by Mr Haughey and his unwillingness to allow the Republic to be exploited by outside interests or to be made subservient to them.
    It outlines a number of standard techniques used by the British to mould people of standing and influence to their way of thinking.
    It considers how far the media gave a one-sided account of events to the detriment of Mr Haughey and suggests a lot of pertinent questions which they should have asked but did not)


    Then the counter book he wrote is described in relation to the first book here in an opinion piece, from Capt Feehan And C.J. Haughey
    Sir, - Kevin Myers depicts the late Captain John Feehan as a hero-worshipper of Charles J. Haughey (July 11th) based on his book, Operation Brogue (1984). He then adds in gross bad taste a reference to the fact (if it is a fact), that Mr Haughey's present Senior Counsel is the son of a man who served in Britain's SAS, a nexus that would be denounced by Captain Feehan, were he alive today, as evidence of a British antiHaughey plot.
    Capt Feehan did allege an antiHaughey plot by various British agencies in Operation Brogue, but when he realised later that Mr Haughey's anti-British posturing (when he was in Opposition) was insincere and fraudulent and designed only to get him back into power, he denounced him as a collaborator with the British occupation in a second book entitled An Apology to the Irish People (1988). That book disowned the arguments advanced in Operation Brogue and accused Mr Haughey of betraying the Northern nationalists and of deceiving those in the 26 Counties who had voted him back into office. - Yours, etc., CIARAN Mac an AILI,



    So my question, as I have not read these books, as the Operation Brogue sounds spot on in relation to the Brit's.
    Is the counter argument book just questioning Haugheys's motives ? , as if so its not a counter/who care's. As in does it counter what the brit's were doing and how they go about doing such things ?

    I have no idea what your saying.

    Are you saying im begging the question ? Or are you saying you agree with half of what im saying ?

    Im trying to pull out from this topic some useful knowledge. Whats the point in referencing a counter book without giving a brief of what that is ?

    Not really. It's not MI5's style to directly carry out murders themselves. They get criminals or terrorists to do it for them, such as the Loyalist gangs or the Manchester Boys. They have many failures.

    The Books aspects (peripheral to the Topic) have been dealt with- go back on Topic or put Questions about Books in the Book Review Thread.

    Never drag Threads of Topic with interpretations of what a Book you haven't read could be about- daft, arrogant distraction...

    Yes. That was the standard operating procedure in the north of Ireland. Most of the dirty work was given to loyalists

    And in Syria we have seen that the jihadis have been the prostitute mercenaries for the Anglo-American empire.

    MI6 worked with the Muslim Brotherhood in the 1950s to try to murder Egyptian President Gamel Abdel Nasser, and with Libyan Jihadists in the 1980s and 90s to try to murder Al Gaddafi. One of their assassination attempts was a bomb that killed several innocent people in Tripoli.

    Asia Times Assassination and the license to kill
    Supposedly they are shit at killing people, and they need others to help out and even then they fuck it all up.

    ...
    Indeed, Britain's overall counter-terror organization was held in such poor esteem by the experienced Israelis that Israel's intelligence service Mossad's Kidon hit-team took the law into its own hands by assassinating two of the Palestinian terrorists suspected of involvement in the Black September Massacre at the 1972 Munich Olympics. One was found dead in his London hotel room, while the second fell under the wheels of a car in High Holborn, much to the annoyance of MI5 (the security service dealing with counter espionage against British organizations by foreign powers, including counter-terrorism) and the fury of Whitehall. The 1988 killing of three Irish Republican Army (IRA) members in Gibraltar by the SAS was reportedly viewed as a bungled operation by Mossad who had originally tracked the Irish terrorists who they suspected of running guns from Lebanon. Wishing to avoid further problems with London by not attempting to kill or capture them on British soil, the surveillance operation was handed over to MI5, and of course later to the SAS, whose heavy-handed approach finally prevented interrogation of the suspects.
    ...

    The general article is good if anyone interested on the topic of brits and their lackeys assassinating people.

    The propaganda on tv over the last week was unreal, James Bond is on every second hour over Christmas. They are really trying to push their license to kill, were out to save the world against the bad guys horseshit. Must be a lot of murder to be done in the real world they need to gloss over.
