About the Author

Terry Reed is a former Air Force Intelligence operative who served with the most secret project of the Vietnam War. Task Force Alpha. This was the most sophisticated and highly classified intelligence gathering unit of that period. At the age of 21, armed with a top-secret security clearance provided by the Defense Intelligence Agency, a near photographic memory and strong mid western values, he was entrusted with America’s dirtiest secrets. As a civilian intelligence asset, he later worked for the FBI and CIA on projects the law had bared these agencies from undertaking. His problems began when the CIA found he had more patriotism than it had bargained for.

John Cummings is a former prize-winning investigative reporter at N.Y Newsday. He has co-authored the "Heist" (1987), "Goombata: The Improbable Rise and Fall of John Gotti and His Gang" (1990) and "Death Do Us Part" (1993).

For over thirty years, since the Bay of Pigs, he has studied the confluence of intelligence gathering, money laundering and drug trafficking. He resides in New York.

Customer Reviews

This story needs to be mandatory reading for all American high school students.
Stephen A Miller
Terry Reed goes into detail over the Clinton/Bush/Oliver North/Barry Seal drug smuggling of the 1980's ... huge cocaine trade that all of the above were involved.
Robert P. Morrow
This book was easily 200 pages too long, provided way too much detail about superfluous information like the type of van the Reeds drove etc.

If you like Tom Clancy, here's the real deal. A former Air Force intelligence officer turned manufacturing engineer, pilot, and independent business man is recruited by the CIA (Oliver North) to assist in the training of Contra pilots in Mena, Arkansas. His name is Terry Reed, and does he have an incredible story to tell! This American patriot reveals everything after the CIA tried to screw him after Iran-contra. Plenty of very interesting information about Clinton, Bush, the Arkansas elite, covert CIA operations, CIA super-agent Barry Seal, money laundering, international narcotics trafficking, and CIA influence in the US political system.

I found this book to answer the mystery of the Iran-Contra/Mena, Arkansas drug smuggling operation. Having read "Under Fire" by Oliver North and this book I find it quite obvious who's lying. Terry Reed, a CIA operative, who thought he was serving an honest government, is compelled to expose the corruption that he himself encountered. Whereas, Oliver North in his book COVERS it all up. We should be thankful for Terry Reed's courage to bring this information out. This book corroborates the documentary, "Mena Cover-up". A man who follows his conscience should never be bound to secrecy when that secrecy only hides corruption. May more COURAGEOUS men and women who have vowed "to secrecy" STAND up!

Format: Hardcover
This book underscores and confirms Peter Dale Scott's paradigmatic expansion (appearing in his book Deep Politics and the Death of JFK), of the parameters of American politics to the cesspool of secrecy just beneath the waterline of normal everyday political maneuverings.

Here, Air Force Colonel Terry Reed tells the story of being assigned, as an "Operations Officer" in charge of a CIA-run transshipment drop-off-point, disguised as a parking meter manufacturing plant, somewhere out in the boondocks on the periphery of the small Hamlet of Mena, Arkansas.

According to Reed, while operating under various "deep covers" and "cut-outs," he later discovered, that he was in fact working for Oliver North's Nicaragua-Contra "drugs-for-gun" project. Quite by accident he had discovered that his small operation in Mena was a link in a much larger and longer chain of activities that led from Ronald Reagan's NSC, to the Medellin cocaine fields. Apparently, as Reed surmised, cocaine was being picked up and transshipped through Mena, enroute to being laundered for guns (pick up at the Pentagon, paid for out of cocaine proceeds), and sent on to the Nicaraguan "contras."

All of cargo that arrived in Mena was of course carefully concealed in the typical large steel locked-down transport containers. According to Reed (whose job it was to make sure such containers were securely locked and un-tampered with), he, somehow was able to see inside that they were packed full of "one-kilo sized bricks" of cocaine -- one of which he wriggled out to keep as evidence to later either "blow the whistle" on the whole operation, or at the very least, to be used as a hedge against being called a "conspiracy kook and liar" once his revelations were made public. That is the essence of Reed's story.

Format: Hardcover
This book is simply amazing. It details the life of a CIA asset, pilot and businessman as he falls further and further into the rabbit hole and learns the truth about the CIA and its control of the government. In the book we find that Bill Clinton, George HW Bush and many other politicians are "compromised" and beholden to the secret government known as the CIA. If you think that there is a difference between political parties, prepare to experience a paradigm shift.

I read this book twice when it was first published. The deals described in this book anticipate many events, such as the political elevation of George H. Bush's sons (yes, I voted for George W. Bush)and the protection enjoyed by Clinton during his presidency. Terry Reed is an American hero with the guts to reveal the truth.

I read this book and walked away disheartened and dismayed not that this goes on but that our Media doesn't tell the truth. The book was way too long with too many details but I appreciate Reed's desire to purge himself of this time in his life. Strangely enough, I even felt bad for Barry Seal. Yes, he was a criminal and out of control but he was set up, hung out to dry and assasinated by our Justice system. Scary!

A great book but about 200 too many pages and horrible typography. I have first hand knowledge of many events described and they are acurate. A must read even though a hard read.
This book should be read by every US citizen. However, it will be read by too few, because of the way the book was produced. I suspect that the book was sabotaged by agent/s provocateur at the production level.
This only proves just how bad our "elite" don't want us to know the truth. Learn the truth in spite of them!

As I read this work, it became so compelling that I couldn't
wait to wake up to read more. I found myself yelling at Terry
and his wife throughout the book - "No, don't do that!" Knowing
not exactly what was waiting for them in the future - but knowing
it wasn't going to be good.
What was amazing was how they "played his ego", "played his
ambition" and generally opted out when questions that made sense
were asked. Who is ever to know if any or all of this story
is or was true. What is important is: It makes too much sense!
The methodology and policies Mr. Reed explains about the Agency
is terrific. Especially, the Barry Seal flights - which tends
to explain a lot of other "so called" mysterious plane crashes
around the world.
Compromised has changed my life, because it not only brought
lots of new information, but confirmed all my worst fears!
