Marshall Green was, writes John Pilger "an imperious, very senior and sinister figure in the US State Department who worked in the shadows of the US deep state". He was known as “the coupmaster”.[1]



US Ambassador to Indonesia

US President Lyndon B. Johnson nominated Green as United States Ambassador to Indonesia on June 4, 1965. Marshall Green played a central role in the 1965 Indonesia coup against President Sukarno.[1] According to Mark Aarons, he is "seen as one of the principal officials involved in encouraging the slaughter."[2][3] Green was Ambassador to Indonesia until March 26, 1969; during his four years in Indonesia, he practiced what he called "low-profile diplomacy".

US Ambassador to Australia

One of his first speeches in Australia was to the Australian Institute of Directors, which was described by an alarmed member of the audience as “an incitement to the country’s business leaders to rise against the government”.[1]
