Michael Shrimpton is a barrister, called to the Bar in London 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 what was then 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 has produced some notable successes, including the exposure of the Abu Ghraib 'hood' photograph as a fake. His work in strategic intelligence has taken 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, near Washington DC.

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 on April 14th 2014. It is expected to feature on a number of intelligence syllabuses. Pirated copies were circulated widely in a number of intelligence agencies prior to publication.

Firstly, I hope everybody had a lovely Christmas. Some of the comments on last week’s article were a bit puzzling, with respect. I can see why some could mistakenly think I am anti-German, but anti-American?

You can leave over and feed the ducks.

Aussie Election Wrap 2

ScreenHunter_2255 Sep. 20 20.32

That’s right – the election is still going on! They haven’t finished counting the votes yet!! This kind of makes my point – the electoral system is far too complicated. Even the parties are having problems with it, with arguments about faxes to the Australian Electoral System going astray. You’ll have to ask the AEC why they are still using such antiquated technology. I imagine they were watching the election on black and white telly.
