Kreig was a reporter which provides him with an essential background on how the media works. Absolute censorship of an issue is rarer in America, though it does occur. Often a major event is reported "in passing," and "doesn't gain traction" while other distractive issues are reported ad nauseam. (And we don't even have to mention the "celebrity culture").Take, as Kreig does, the Presidential election of 2000, and the vote counting in the State of Florida.Read more ›
However, Andy Kreig does more than rehash recent news. In this important work Kreig provides readers with background for the hidden dynamics of the current electoral and political scene. As his title suggests "presidential puppetry" addresses the way that intelligence operatives, perhaps most prominently CIA, groom candidates for major political offices in the United States. According to Kreig this grooming includes helping to gain access to education on favorable terms and providing assistance with the exposure of the scandal of their political competitors.
Kreig does not discuss much about whether Pres. Obama functions with a gun to his head - the stick used to influence foreign leaders, according to John Perkins in "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man." Rather, he focuses on the carrots and the assists that have been given to Barack Obama over the course of his rapid rise in the political hierarchy of American politics.
This could not be more timely in view of the pending appointment of James Comey for a term of ten years as director of the Federal Bureau of investigation.Read more ›
I am in Afghanistan, with very little time to myself, and regret I have not been able to sit down with this book and give it the double read that it merits. As with any book that I consider a potential blockbuster, I started with the index, notes, and bibliography. All three are deep. This book is both a citizen's primer, and a reference work that will stand the test of time in helping future generations of students. It is a starting point for truth in the public interest.
I am one of those very few non-fiction reviewers that is also a former CIA clandestine case officer and a career intelligence officer. My reviews of over 300 books on intelligence are easily found (each review leading back to their Amazon home page) are easily found by searching for < Worth a Look: Book Reviews on Intelligence (Most)> without the brackets.
Imagine my astonishment, then, when I get through the first part of the book and discover that Obama may be CIA's second wholly-owned president. Obama's parents appear clearly documented as non-official cover CIA officers (officers spy, agents are the people they recruit) responsible for spotting, assessing, and recruiting among the Islamic up and comers. This section alone makes this book priceless.
Now in fairness to Obama, it must be said that George Bush (Papa) is now known to have been a CIA non-official cover officer present in Dallas and probably also directly responsible for supervising the assassination of John F. Kennedy. I do not write such opinions lightly.Read more ›
