Happy New Year!


By Michael Shrimpton


A very happy New Year to all VT staff and readers.  I hope you all had lots of mince pies and mulled wine, etc., over Christmas.  In the case of our Australian readers, for “mulled wine” read “tinnies of XXXX” of course.

We’ve had some pretty silly New Year messages over here in England. Our Deputy Prime Minister in particular, a chap named Clegg (we Eurosceptics refer to him affectionately as ‘von Clegg’), went off-piste, banging on about the European Union.  In fairness, at least he didn’t go as far off-piste as poor old Michael Schumacher, no offense intended.

Response to Comments

Many thanks to JS and Sweet Liberty for the kind words!  In answer to the question about Martin Bormann, he was not a commie, indeed he was no more a communist than Joe Stalin.  He reported to Admiral Canaris, in fact apart from Eva Braun he was Herr Admiral’s closest asset to Hitler.

Whilst there is no doubt that Adolf topped himself in the bunker (never let your wife go first in a suicide pact – for the first and last time in his life Adolf Hitler played the gentleman!) Martin did not.  So far as I know he headed off down to Argentina in one of the DVD’s Type XXI transport U-Boats, Nazis not for the use of.

In answer to ‘Potai’ we British paint targets on our planes to give the enemy a sporting chance.  It simply wouldn’t be cricket to go into combat without giving the ‘Hun’ something to aim at.  Mind you what England are playing in Sydney at the moment isn’t cricket either.  Our cricket team is suffering from the same leadership problems as our government, Alistair Cook, our cricket captain, being almost as useless as David Cameron.  Frightened of losing, he seems to have set out to draw each match of the five Test series and of course has lost four in a row.  We’re losing the Fifth Test as well.

Like Cameron, Cook cannot control events, merely watch them happen.  Like our cricket team our country is a rudderless ship.

Was ‘Mac’ Wallace one of the shooters?

I was intrigued by Sherwood Ross’s and Jim Fetzer’s article on JFK.  I respectfully differ from them on some points, but I suspect it will be possible to confirm ‘Mac’ Wallace as one of the shooters, although one source claims he was in firing upwards from the storm drain.  I am not able to confirm any of the other names they give.

One thing we do know is that the shooters were exfiltrated via a facility in the Gulf not unconnected to the Zapata Corporation.  We also know that none made it out alive.  What we are looking for, therefore, is dead shooters who were in Dallas on the day that JFK was assassinated.  “Sarkay”, the Corsican apparently referred to by the late E. Howard Hunt, a great character, and much missed, might fit the bill.

E. Howard Hunt

Hunt’s other deathbed claims have the ring of truth, in particular the suggestion that Cord Meyer Jr., a Dulles recruit to the COREA Group and CIA, was involved.  Cord, whose home number in Washington I once had (we never met), later became CIA Head of Station in London (strictly he was based mostly at RAF Mildenhall).  Notoriously, he directed the CIA’s covert program of support for the ‘Yes’ side in the 1975 referendum on EEC membership, the outcome of which disastrously condemned the UK to 39 years of hugely expensive and debilitating EEC/EU membership, and counting.

There was no benefit to the USA of course of having the UK trapped inside the German Sphere of Influence.  That operation was ultimately directed from ‘Hunland.’  I doubt that Cord liaised too closely with Langley.  He reported to COREA Group HQ in Frankfurt.

It is easy to believe that Cord was involved, ditto Everette himself.  I rather suspect that Richard Helms organized for him to go down to Mexico City as Acting Station Chief (Hunt had previously been Station Chief there) in the fall of ’63, when Oswald visited, as Lee was being set up for the role of patsy.

Ten Shots?

I wouldn’t argue strongly against “up to ten shots”.  Jim and I are not that far apart on the number of shots, even if we don’t agree on the DVD’s role.  I think five is the absolute minimum and ten a realistic maximum.  I now regard four as too low.

Classic Movie of the Week: The Guns of Navarone (1961)

Directed by J. Lee Thompson this fine movie was shown again over Christmas on British TV.  Of course most viewers will have seen it before, but what about the youngsters?  Many of them will have been seeing it for the first time.

VT readers will know that you should always look carefully over the edge of the cliff for a German patrol before you climb over, but for kids this could be a handy hint.  They might also not know to throw the dead ‘Kraut’s’ body over the cliff in case another comes along.  For the young, watching The Guns of Navarone should be an educational experience.

The movie of course was based on Alistair Maclean’s famous book.  Alistair’s real life intelligence experience was brought to bear.  As with many a real special forces op our heroes’ mission is betrayed.  The commander, Major Franklin, and his side-kick, Captain Mallory, ably played by Anthony Quayle and Gregory Peck respectively, are naturally suspicious of one of their number, ‘Butcher’ Brown (Stanley Baker), who was slow to kill a ‘Jerry’ sailor on a patrol boat they encounter on their way to Navarone.  It turns out that Stanley Baker’s character had simply got tired of killing Germans, i.e. the incident could be explained away as eccentricity.

The cast was outstanding, with the leads including David Niven and Anthony Quinn.   The fine supporting cast included James Robertson Justice, as Commander Jensen, Richard Harris as an irate Aussie squadron leader in the RAF, Allan Cuthbertson as a major who does not understand intelligence work, Michael Trubshawe, as a keen type who does, a bit, and Walter Gotell.  Walter, who later played KGB chief General Gogol in the Bond movies (eventually – he started out playing another character, in From Russia With Love), plays a decent ‘Jerry’, Oberleutnant Muesel, who doesn’t do torture or mention the EEC.

It’s well worth watching again.

Author Details
Michael Shrimpton is a barrister, currently suspended of course, called to the Bar in London in 1983. He is a specialist in National Security and Constitutional Law, Strategic Intelligence and Counterterrorism. He has wide ranging connections both in Western Intelligence agencies and amongst ex-Soviet Bloc agencies. The late Generaloberst Markus Wolf, of the Stasi and DVD, was one of his contacts. Michael has earned respect in the intelligence community for his analysis of previously unacknowledged post-WWII covert operations against the West by the German DVD organization based in Dachau, near Munich, Germany, and its British, French and American client agencies. These continue to the present day, as politicians and the media are too nervous of standing up to them.

Michael was formerly an Adjunct Professor of Intelligence Studies in the Department of National Security, Intelligence and Space Studies at the American Military University, teaching intelligence subjects at Masters level to inter alia serving intelligence officers. He has represented US and Israeli intelligence officers in law and briefed in staffers on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the Joint Congressional Inquiry into 9-11. In the wake of that murderous attack he addressed panels on terrorism in Washington DC and Los Angeles organized by the respected Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs. Fellow panelists included a former head of Special Operations Command and a former Commander of the US Atlantic Fleet.

Michael’s active assistance to Intelligence and Law Enforcement agencies in the Global War on Terror produced some notable successes, including the exposure of the Abu Ghraib ‘hood’ photograph as a fake. His work on strategic intelligence took him to the Pentagon and he has also met with senior advisors to the President of the Russian Federation, in Moscow, in November 2005. He participated in the Global Strategic Review conference in Geneva in 2005 and was a speaker at both the Intelligence Conference (Intelcon) in 2005, and the Intelligence Summit in 2006, each at Crystal City.

In 2006 he was flown out to, and flew off from, the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN-65), as part of the US Navy’s Distinguished Visitor Program. She was then working up her air group off the Eastern Seaboard of the United States, before operational deployment to the Persian Gulf. It is comparatively unusual for a foreign civilian to complete a carrier landing and launch cycle.

Michael’s ground-breaking, 700 page intelligence text “Spyhunter: The Secret History of German Intelligence” was published in England by June Press in April 2014. It features on a number of intelligence syllabuses, as does intelligence analysis prepared by Michael, e.g. on the brutal 2003 assassination of British weapons scientist Dr David Kelly CMG.

In their unlawful raid on Michael’s home in Wendover, Buckinghamshire in April 2012 Thames Valley Police officers seized the manuscript of Spyhunter and all of Michael’s onshore backups. Publication was only possible because the draft had been backed up offshore. The police hung onto the seized copies long after it was decided not to use them as evidence.

In November 2014 Michael was convicted at Southwark Crown Court by a tampered-with jury panel on two bogus bomb-hoax charges. Prior to bringing in the police the British Ministry of Defence, after consulting with the Cabinet Office, destroyed their recordings of Michael’s initial contact and qualified intelligence briefing re a DVD operation to target the Opening Ceremony of the 2012 Olympics using a stolen Russian SS-N-19 warhead.

Happily the NSA intercepted both Michael’s call to MOD and their call to him (on a number he had provided) and the intercepts are now in the hands of MI5.

As Michael’s distinguished Veterans Today colleagues Gordon Duff and Ben Fulford have confirmed on this website, his intelligence briefing to MOD was substantially correct and two warheads, both off an SS-19, were recovered by the US. After inspection the Department of Energy estimated their yield at 20KT.
