  2. 2. Editorial A couple of readers recently enquired as to what are the questions most freqently asked of NEXUS. It inspired me to fill this editorial with our responses. ~ #1. The most commonly-asked question sounds something like: "If what you publish is true, why havent you been closed down?" Tlhe answers that spring to mind are: (a) Somebody up there likes us; (b) Nobody up there gives a damn; (c) We are too Ibig to close down without attracting yet more attention; (dl We are too small to worry about; (e) Maybe we are acciden­ tally following some secret sooiomanipulative agenda of somebodys; or (0 They have never heard of NEXUS. #2. The second most frequently-asked question is similar: "Do you ever get any threats?" The answer is definitely no. We have been indirectly wamed off publishing too much on the drug trade invollvement of the glob­ al inteilligence community, and about who owns most of Australia, b~t ....... thats about it. #3. "Who is behind NEXUS?" The answer to that is easy-its God! On a more mundane level, though, Catherine and I own NEXUS~no organisa­ tion, no committees, no other shareholders, no politicali leanings or affi lia­ tions and no religious leanings or affiliations. It is a business that we believe in! #4. "Where do you get all your information?" We get it from ever-grow­ ing numbers of NEXUS readers around the world. We also tap into the global computer networks, or Internet, as well as subscribe to dozens of journals, magazines and newsletters. #5. "Will you ever run out of stories?" This one really tickles me. I esti­ mate conservatively that we have two years worth of stories just in our hot trays, let alone what is in our filing cabinets. To handle ,the overload we are setting up a Web page on the Internet, and (eventually) publishing some special one-offs on various subjects such as prophecies, science, UFOs, successfu~ cancer treatments, etc. #6. "What are the aims or goals of NEXUS?" Our aim is to present hard­ to-get, ignored and suppressed information on the subjects of health, sci­ ence, the unexplained, world events and history. Our goal is the day when all people of all races and colours can live together in total trust and respect, on a planet that is clean, abundant and healthy. #7. "How secure is your mailing list of subscribers?" I think it is as secure as anything can be these days. For what it is worth, we do not rent or sell our list of subscribers, either. #8. "When are you going to publish monthly?" I would like to know the answer to that one, too! #9. "How long have you been doing NEXUS, and when did it start?" NEXUS was first published in the Autumn of 1987 as a quarterly magazine dealing with alternative issues. When we took over the business in October 1)990, we changed it to a bi-monthly, changed most of the content materia.I, and moved out of Sydney to the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, where I sit right now, at 5 am on Tuesday 11 th July 1995, which is Deadline Day!

  9. 9. n July this year, the UKUSA Agreement celebrates 48 years of operation. But-there I will be no fanfare, no ceremonies and no media attention marking the event. Born in secrecy, it will conti_n~e to operate in secrecy, linking the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Japan, Korea and NATO nations in a peak security agreement. The United Kingdom United States of America Agreement is one of the most important treaties ever entered into by the English-speaking world, and one of the least well-known. Desmond Ball (1990) has described toe UKUSA pact as "the ties that bin-d", a treaty which obligates Australia to cooperate with the other UKUSA partners. To this date, it has never been officially acknowledged by any country. This article examines some of Born in secrecy, it the significant organisations and projects that operate under the UKUSA pact. Despite the secrecy surrounding the agreement, quite a considerable amount of techni­ will continue to cal information h:as been made available through the work of researchers such as Desmond Ban and James Bamford. They have, however, been at pains to ensure that operate in secrecy, "there is no single mention of the subject of UFOs" (Good, 1987, p. 412). While the exact day and month of the UKUSA pact continue to be debate-d, the year linking the USA, the itself, 1947, bears significance as the year of the alleged Roswell UFO crash in New UK, Australia, New Mexico and heightened UFO activity. (Incidentally, the first A-bomb test was in New Mexico [Cathie, 1990, p. 239].) Zealand, Canada, According to Cooper (1991, p. 196), between January 1947 and December 1952 at least 16 crashed or downedl al,ien craft, 65 bodies and one live alien were recovered. Of these, Japan, Korea ancl 13 occurred within the borders of the United States. Researcher Ronald R.

The nature of the UKl!JSA Agreement has provided dts organs with a unique autonomy peal( security and ability to pry into any avenue that proves interesting. Top-secret military bases such as Pine Gap, Nurrungar and Menwith Hill operate under the UKUSA pact. So, too, does agreelnent. the clandestine National Security Agency (NSA). Research conducted for the "Star Wars" project, now linked with the deaths of 22 defence scientists, is also conducted under the auspices of the UKUSA Agreement. The initial idea of the agreement was to carve up the globe into spheres of cryptofogical influence. Each country was assigned specific targets according to its potential for maxi­ mum intercept coverage. UKUSA brought together, under a single umbrella, the SIGINT (signals intelligence) organisations of the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. In recent years, Japan, Korea and NATO nations have joined the pact. Prior to the UKUSA Agreement, an arrangement known as BRUSA existed. BRUSA formalised cooperation between British and US COMINT (communications intelligence) agencies. Although top secret, news of the UKUSA Agreement leaked quickly to Moscow through Kim Philby. As one American intelligence officer put it, the UKUSA Agreement was "like opening up a party line to Moscow centre" (Costello, 1988, p. 516). Signatories to the UKUSA Agreement conceded to standardise terminology, code­ words, intercept handling procedures and indoctrination oaths. Today, cooperation among pact members occurs in areas such as monitoring radio broadcasts, undertaking covert action and assassinations, overhead reconnaissance, human intelligence, estimates, securi­ ty intelligence, counter-intelligence, training, seconding and equipment (Bamford, 1982, p.308).AUGUST - SEPTEMBER 1995 NEXUS. 11
