Heavy duty skull-duggery listed in the article below puts the furore over the "Ardoyne riots" into persepective. Local media were prepared to give seemingly unlimited coverage to small-time thugs who should have been crushed by the "security forces." It is noticeable the media largely linked the orchestrated rioting to "the Twelth" instead of linking it where it belongs, to the so-called "Republican movement."

Why are the local media not interested in very big time crime such as the following; if you have any problem with the information sue Lobster website.

The following information can be found in the Lobster Feb 1984 issue 3


Still unreleased is the 'Whiteside Inquiry'. In December 1981 R.U.C. Chief Sir John Hermon set up an internal investigation to discover what happened to missing files and why the Kincora buggers weren't prosecuted earlier. In charge was Assistant Chief Constable John Whiteside. Another 'independent' choice, Whiteside was a former head of Special Branch and the R.U.C. man most closely linked with British Intelligence during the seventies. He was a former R.U.C. member of the Security Liaison Committee set up by Sir Maurice Oldfield.


Gradually the pieces are coming together, though it will turn out to be a very large jigsaw. Britain's Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) set up a Northern Irish section in the Conway Hotel at Dunmurray.

Headed by Frank Howard Smith with Philip Woodhead as his desk man in London, MI6 handled their Kincora agents through a number of 'cut-outs' - the normal way of distancing SIS officers from events which might go wrong. The man who orchestrated the various activities of the Kincora Ring has been identified as a Lt. Colonel in the British Army, (4) attached to the E Department (Special Branch) of the R.U.C. whose staff code was F5. The links between F5 and Kincora were known by E3 (the Superintendent in charge of the intelligence section of the R.U.C. at Knock H.Q.) and his deputy in charge of intelligence on Loyalists, a Chief Inspector whose code was E3(B).

The Terry Report uncovered, though did not report, links between the homosexual vice-ring and senior MI5 member P.T.E. 'Peter' England, now dead. Kincora resident John Baird visited England at a house on the Old Hollywood Road in Belfast. The house was a Brit-intelligence base used as a pickup point for Provisional IRA leaders during the peace talks in 1976 which led to the setting up of Republican 'Incident Centres' paid for by the British. England was then C(Int)NI - the Chief of British Intelligence in Northern Ireland, a key figure in the Security Service (MI5).

Another senior intelligence man involved in the vice-ring directed, but took no part in the 'truce' talks at British Intelligence HQ in Craigavan, Co. Down. He moved to a crucial position in Britain's defence structure. R.U. C. men have made statements about his homosexual associations. The Provisionals dealt with him indirectly through MI6 officer James Allan.(5) In a bizarre twist the Provos became convinced from contacts abroad that he was a KGB agent.(6)

Michael Bettaney the former intelligence officer now on remand at Brixton prison may have connections to Kincora. A high flier, Bettaney found himself in 'F' Department, the section which deals with Irish affairs. He arrived in Northern Ireland at the height of the Kincora vice-ring. Bettaney is homosexual and while at Oxford was involved in Nazi politics, forming a right-wing student alliance at the University.

He was charged with passing on British Intelligence assessments of a KGB network operating in Britain, and of disclosing details of the expulsion of three Soviet diplomats from Britain in Apri1 1983. Soon after the court appearance (Bettaney was on loan to the MOD) a government spokesman stated that no one had been expelled from the country. True, but a few days earlier Mr Guennadi Saline (codename 'Silver') First Secretary and Press Attache to the Soviet Embassy in Dublin, was expelled from Eire, as were Victor Lipassov and his wife Evotokia. Mrs Lipassov is believed to be a KGB agent and to have used the lack of passport regulations between Ireland and Britain to travel to areas restricted to diplomats. She made at least three visits to Britain using scheduled flights. (Times 12th September 1983).

The man handling the case is old Irish hand Det. Supt. John Wescott of Scotland Yard's Special Branch. He has made frequent visits to the Phoenix Park in Northern Ireland where all the intelligence stuff goes on. Bettaney's lawyer is Larry Grant, on the MI5 blacklist of lawyers, a former chairman of NCCL whose previous clients include Philip Agee and Kenneth Lemon.
It is highly unlikely any of the present crop of small-time troublemakers engaged in the past weeks disturbances will come anywhere near the level of criminality described in the above articles, is it?

Proverbs 29:1-3
1 He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.
2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice:
but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.
3 Whoso loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father: but he that keepeth company with harlots spendeth his substance.
