In a food processor with the steel knife, blend olives, capers, anchovies, garlic, Cognac, lemon juice, and thyme until finely chopped.

Add the tuna with oil and process until pureed.

With processor on, add butter two tablespoons at a time, incorporating each before adding the next batch.

Put mixture in a bowl, and fold in pepper and walnuts.

Scrape into a 3-cup terrine or other serving bowl, and level the top.

Refrigerate until serving, then decorate with walnut halves.

Serve cool but not cold.
