In 2014, writing about the 1975 Australian coup d'état, John Pilger noted that on "The day after his election, [[[Australian prime minister]] Gough Whitlam] ordered that his staff should not be “vetted or harassed” by the Australian security organisation, ASIO – then, as now, tied to Anglo-American intelligence".[1]
