A Discussion About Legerdemain

No, this is not an article about sleight of hand and card tricks. The Legerdemain in this case is a book written by James ‘Jim’ Heaphey. Morocco is not the first country that springs to mind when you mention the ‘Cold War’. Most people think of fabulous food cooked in a tagine.
Morocco in fact played a very key role in the Cold War. In the days before ICBM’s the only way to deliver a nuclear weapon was by bomber. Morocco was well placed to act as a potential takeoff point for bombing the USSR.
I am sure you are saying, how come I have never heard about this? That is a fair question and the answer is that it was not until recently that the documents were declassified and the people involved permitted to talk about it.
