Dangerous Liaison Summary


Dangerous Liaison: Inside Story of the Covert United States-Israeli Relationship by Andrew Cockburn

Since its founding in 1948, Israel has enjoyed a close relationship with the USA (closer at times than others), thanks largely to the substantial and vocal population of American Jews. But this, as the authors aim to show here, is only part of the picture. They claim there is a hidden dark side to the US-Israeli liaison, one responsible for a wide variety of corrupt, illegal, dangerous and unprincipled activity. It includes Project KK Mountain, funded by the CIA to the tune of $20 million a year, by means of which Israeli agents are said to have influenced newly-independent black African governments - among others, Idi Amin; undercover Israeli operations aimed at developing a nuclear bomb; a joint CIA-Israeli plot to bring down Nasser before the 1967 war; the huge expansion of the Israeli arms industry - with American help; Israeli efforts to block Detente in the 1970s through backing Jewish Defense League thugs in the US; the Pentagon-Israeli defence establishment connection, and the strong links between Israel and South Africa (in 1981 General Ariel Sharon actually led a column of South African troops into Angola). The authors offer evidence of the training of death squads and other undercover operations on behalf of Noriega and drug lords in Central America by "retired" Israeli officers and of Israeli involvement in Contra funding and Irangate.
