6 of 9 people found the following review helpful By cortezhill VINE VOICE on November 1, 2007
Format: Paperback
This explosive book lays bare the full details of current events [circa 1987], exposing the personalities and institutional relations behind the headlines. It goes beyond the specific events of the recent period to discern the roots of contemporary U.S. covert activity in the history of the past two decades. It delves into the details of CIA and extra-CIA operations including drug-trafficking, gun-running, government-toppling, and assasination.

The authors argue that the Iran-Contra scandal is not merely a plan gone awry, but a consistent outgrowth of a long tradition of covert U.S. activities. From the Bay of Pigs invasion teams to the NSC organizational team; from the CIA and the World Anti-Communist League to the Israeli connection and the State Department; this is the full story, unfettered by concerns of "damage control."

5 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Al-CIAduh is the terrorist on August 8, 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Scathing revelatory work exposing America's creation of the al-CIAduh "terrorist" boogeyman that most people are too stupid to recognize. Shamefully most Americans are unable to correctly identify the REAL threat to their nation and the faces that make up that threat because they are unwilling to disassociate themselves from the propaganda system that obfuscates REALITY.
