It has to be remembered that this is the official history of MI6. Keith Jeffery has admitted that he was not allowed to name any MI6 agent that has not been previously identified. Nor has he been able to publish the MI6 documents that he has used in the book. MI6 said yesterday that these documents will remain closed to the public.

In the book he claims that MI6 have never been involved in political assassinations. He said that before the D-Day landings MI6 officers discussed a co-ordinated assassination campaign in France, but rejected the idea. Jeffery claims that the archives do not support the idea that the MI6 have ever tried to assassinate anybody. However, Peter Wright, a former MI6 agent, admitted in his book Spycather (1987) that their were plans to assassinate President Nasser in 1956.

According to Michael Smith, the author of Six: A History of Britain's Secret Intelligence Service (2010), Rasputin was murdered by MI6 and that its agent, Oswald Rayner, who fired the final shot.

John, I've long been a silent enquirer re Sadat. I was going to be provided with a tape of the assassination some years back previously unseen and closely guarded but some interference occurred.

Because of the splits in the Cairo bureau (WWII) and the later development of the Strategy of Tension and the rise fall rise of Mubarak, have you ever come across any Sadat mentions in this context?

Over three hundred Islamic radicals were indicted in the trial of the lead assassin Khalid Islambouli. Despite this, the nephew of Anwar Sadat, Talaat al-Sadat, claimed that the assassination was an international conspiracy. In an interview with a Saudi television channel, he claimed both the United States and Israel were involved: "No one from the special personal protection group of the late president fired a single shot during the killing, and not one of them has been put on trial."

Interestingly, the daughter of Anwar Sadat, is currently going to court defending her father from charges that he was part of a conspiracy that assassinated Gamal Abdel Nasser in 1970 (officially he died of a heart attack).

Assassination of Anwar El Sadat (rare) اغتيال انور السادات

What this doesn't show is the assassin who reaches the wall and fires prolonged bursts into the stand, over the concrete wall. (From memory, 164 rounds were fired by the assassins.)

There are conflicting reports of how many stun grenades went off.

Security took their time to respond while everyone scattered, leaving Sadat completely unprotected.

Sadat was meant to go on to pay his respects to Nasser.
