Cambridge educated, blonde and beautiful, Annie Machon was MI5's dream recruit... until she blew the whistle on them for all their crimes.
She had been recruited on the promise that MI5 had been cleaned up, that they were no longer wasting their time spying on student and acitivist groups, and that this was a good job for someone who believed in her country. Instead, what she saw were illegal phone taps, government ministers kept in line by the files kept on them, IRA bombings which could have been prevented, and state sponsored murder without accountability.
The final straw was a botched attempt to assasinate Colonel Gaddafi of Libya in 1996 and blame the murder on "Al Qaeda". Gaddafi survived, but many innocents were killed in the ensuing shoot-out.
When Machon, and her former partner David Shayler, tried to report this incident, first through official channels and then through the media they were forced into exile in France, where they spent three years on the run.
Machon will be telling us this story, the story of MI5's bungling, add a few choice episodes from our ow illustrious CSIS -- the Canadian counterpart to MI5 -- and tie it all in to 9/11 and the history of false flage terrorism.
