In March 2020, Couglin wrote a column in The Daily Telegraph accusing the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) of being a corrupt elite that has no interest in protecting the interests of its citizens, nor those of the world beyond, desperate not to be held accountable for causing a disaster of truly catastrophic proportions .

In April 2020, he wrote in another column suggesting readers should treat China like a hostile state due to the deliberate lack of transparency and cooperation that has characterized the CCP response, and its reprehensible behavior by launching a disinformation campaign that seeks to portray China as the victim, rather than being the instigator of a global health crisis..

In January 2014 Thomas Dunne Books published Coughlin’s book on Churchill’s First War: Young Winston at War with the Afghans.

In April 2009, Coughlin wrote an article entitled “My advice to Obama: Don’t pick a fight with Dick Cheney”, which was published on the Telegraph’s website. In the article, which followed claims that US forces had waterboarded an Al Qaeda suspect 183 times, Coughlin argued that: “There are always two sides to a story, even a deeply unpleasant one such as waterboarding an al-Qaeda suspect”, before asking “what if, as Mr Cheney is now suggesting, these brutal interrogation methods actually produced information that saved lives by thwarting potential al-Qaeda attacks?”. Coughlin suggested that the problem posed “an interesting ethical dilemma”, namely: “Are interrogation methods like waterboarding justified if they save lives, or should we respect the detainees’ human rights, thereby enabling the terror attacks to take place and claim innocent lives? I know which option I’d go for”. Coughlin has persisted in writing articles supporting the use of torture, for example on 10 February 2010 “When the next bomb goes off in London, blame the judges”.

In 2006 Coughlin rejoined The Daily Telegraph as the newspaper’s Defence and Security Editor after a brief spell writing for the Daily Mail, and later that year was promoted to the post of Executive Foreign Editor. He writes a weekly column, “Inside Abroad”, and comments on a broad range of subjects, with a special interest in defence and security issues, the Middle East and international terrorism. He maintains a blog for the Telegraph’s website.

His next book, American Ally: Tony Blair and the War on Terror (ECCO, 2006) was nominated Kirkus Reviews books of the year. In 2009 Coughlin published Khomeini’s Ghost (Macmillan, London, and ECCO, New York City) a study of the life of Ayatollah Khomeini and his impact on the radicalisation of the Islamic world during the previous thirty years. Historian Dominic Sandbrook, reviewing Khomeini’s Ghost in The Observer, wrote: “Readers already familiar with recent Iranian history will not discover much new information in Coughlin’s account, but it nevertheless makes a very readable and entertaining introduction to a nation badly misunderstood in the west. And while Coughlin makes no secret of his deep antipathy to the Iranian government, his treatment of its founder is satisfyingly nuanced”. Iranian-American journalist Azadeh Moaveni, in a review for The New York Times, asserted that the book contained factual errors and misrepresentations of facts, the author having documents out of context to bolster his argument.

In late 2003, in a front-page exclusive story, Coughlin revealed a leaked intelligence memorandum, purportedly uncovered by Iraq’s interim government, which detailed a meeting between Mohamed Atta, one of the 11 September hijackers, and Iraqi intelligence at the time of Saddam Hussein. The memo was supposedly written by Iraqi security chief General Tahir Jalil Habbush al-Tikriti to the president of Iraq. The report was subsequently challenged with American officials also reiterating that there was no such link.

In 2002 Coughlin published a biography of Saddam Hussein. The American edition, Saddam: King of Terror (ECCO) was a New York Times best-seller in 2003, and received international critical acclaim.

Telegraph Newspapers apologised for a libel against Saif al-Islam Gaddafi in April 2002. The Sunday Telegraph had published an article by Coughlin in November 1995, then the newspaper’s chief foreign correspondent (and a piece for the newspaper’s Mandrake column, published during the following month, which quoted Coughlin) alleging that Saif al-Islam Gaddafi was involved in a massive criminal operation with Iranian officials that involved counterfeit notes and money laundering in Europe based on information received by British intelligence and banking officials. The Sunday Telegraph was served with a libel writ by Saif al-Islam Gaddafi. The original story followed a lunch given by Malcolm Rifkind, then Foreign Secretary, at which editor Charles Moore and colleagues were present, and later briefings given to Coughlin by MI6 agents who had insisted on the preservation of their anonymity.

The main court case followed in 2002, which was defended by the Telegraph Group and was eventually settled out of court without any damages being paid, and with both sides agreeing to pay their own costs. In 2002 Geoffrey Robertson QC made a statement on behalf of the Telegraph Group stating “there was no truth in the allegation that Saif al-Islam Gaddafi participated in any currency sting”.

After a hearing at the Court of Appeal in October 1998, it was established that the journalists had a right to bring the story before the public under the Qualified privilege, under the Reynold’s Defence rules established by an earlier case, Reynolds v Times Newspapers Ltd the previous July.

Coughlin is the author of several books. His first book was Hostage: The Complete Story of the Lebanon Captives (Little, Brown 1992), which was followed by a study of the politics of modern Jerusalem, A Golden Basin Full of Scorpions which was BBC correspondent John Simpson’s “book of the year” and was described as “excellent, a brilliant book” by the author A. N. Wilson.

Coughlin opened the newspaper’s bureau in Jerusalem, and spent the next three years covering a multitude of stories throughout the region. In April 1986 he narrowly escaped being kidnapped by Hezbollah gunmen in Beirut, the day before another British journalist John McCarthy was kidnapped. In March 2009 Coughlin recalled this experience in My Alter Ego, a programme for BBC Radio 4. In 1989 Coughlin returned to London, where he transferred to The Sunday Telegraph and was appointed the newspaper’s chief foreign correspondent. During the next few years he received several promotions, becoming Foreign Editor in 1997 and Executive Editor in 1999. The following year The Sunday Telegraph won the prestigious “newspaper of the year” award at the British Press Awards.

Becoming a foreign correspondent, his first big assignment was to cover the American invasion of Grenada in late 1983. From there he was sent to Beirut during the Lebanese civil war where he developed his interest in the Middle East and international terrorism. After the Telegraph group was bought in 1985 by the Canadian businessman Conrad Black, Coughlin was appointed The Daily Telegraph’ s Middle East correspondent by Max Hastings, the newspaper’s new editor.

In August 1977 Coughlin joined the Thomson Regional Newspapers graduate trainee course and after undertaking his initial training in Cardiff served out his indentures as a trainee reporter with the Reading Evening Post. In November 1980 Coughlin joined The Daily Telegraph as a general news reporter. Coughlin has spent most of his journalistic career working for what is now the Telegraph Media Group.

Con Coughlin (born 14 January 1955) is a British journalist and author, currently The Daily Telegraph Defence Editor.
