According to Mr. Dodd, in response to a letter he had written to the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace asking certain questions about their history and operations, he was issued an invitation via telephone to go to their office in New York and meet with some of their representatives. He accepted the invitation, and when he arrived he was greeted by the President of the Foundation, Dr. Joseph Johnson, two vice presidents, and their legal counsel. They suggested to Mr. Dodd that he send a member of his staff to New York for two weeks and they would provide that person with a room in their library and the minute books of the foundation from its inception to the present. Dodd realized that most of these men were new in their positions, and preoccupied with other matters of greater importance to them, so he accepted the offer, knowing that none of them had ever likely read any of those minutes.Read more ›
The book is a documentation of the findings from the 82nd Congressionally appointed committee nicknamed, "The Reece Committee," which was given the task of investigating tax-exempt foundations; of prime significance the Ford, Rockefeller, and Carnegie respectively.
In a more refined sense, the committee was instructed to the investigation of what significance, if any, were the foundations using their resources for "un-American and subversive activities; for political purposes; propaganda, or attempts to influence legislation."
The results and findings lay inside this highly important work.
Consequently, one must keep in mind that the book itself was not written by the committee; but rather by Rene A. Wormser, who acted as Counsel of the committee during its lifetime. However this does not in any way take away from the truthfulness of the findings. Wormser adheres strictly to the facts of what the committee mined out of Americas dark past and at that time, present. Also the chair of the committee, Carroll Reece, writes the preface in which he testifies to the objectivity of the book.
Overall, highly recommended if you can handle the truth.
[ ASIN:B000MILFVS Radio Liberty: The Secret Government (4 CD's 2-One Hour Interview & 1-Two Hour Interview) ]
or CD (directly from Radio Liberty). Hopefully the CD version will be available soon on Amazon.
You can as they say, hear it directly from the horses' mouth with interviews from Norman Dodd concerning "The Enemies Within" and "Tragedy & Hope: A History of the World in Our Time" by Carroll Quigley and Dr. Monteith on the true nature of GeoPolitics.
Radio Liberty with their much valued and pertinent books, audio and video along with Dr. Stanley Monteith's audio reading will bring home to you a wealth of need-to-know information.
One interesting little-known aspect of the Reece Commission is that it was effectively short-circuited by the efforts of then Rep. Wayne Hayes, R-Ohio, otherwise notable in his career only for the episode that ended it, the exposure of his personal corruption by his "secretary" Elizabeth Ray, who came forward to state that she had been employed only as, in effect, a taxpayer-funded prostitute.
For those who balk at the time and expense required by this work, "None Dare Call It Conspiracy" by Gary Allen would be the popular alternative. It might be the most influential but least acknowledged book ever published.
