If you are looking to read a book that history will point to as a great piece of literary art this isn't it. If you want, "just the facts," and are looking for another book to validate the Bush crime family, then you will enjoy this account from an insider. What if find interesting are the well-written articles Al writes on his web site compared to the uneveness of this book. Whether lacking an editor or just the need to get this book to print quickly, it is written in a way teachers across America have nighmares about. I thoroughly enjoyed this book simply because it cut right to the "facts" in naming names, and exposing once again how corrupt and powerful the U.S. Government is. Money laundering, bank fraud, land fraud, stock fraud, drug trafficking, murder and more, it's all here. The Bush boys have all the bases covered. Sorry, no sex.
Who is Al Martin? If you are under thirty-five and never followed the Iran Contra debacle who the heck is anybody? Of course most of us know George Bush lost his memory during the trials and Ollie North became a hero. Read the book and find out why both should be tried for treason. Do you trust the messengers word and supposed "documentation" or do you dismiss it as another disgruntled whitleblower? This is the third book about the Bush crime family I've read and there are plenty more ... I need no more convincing. If the last chapter in this book is true and not a work of fiction, may I suggest if you are religious, start praying and never stop. Two stars for writing and five stars for the message...an excellent book by my account.

Over the past 20 years, I have amassed hundreds of publications about government crime. (Enough to understand that "isolated incidents" are not.) Al Martin's book focuses on the last two decades of governmental abuses, and it is an unparalleled treasure trove of names, dates and deeds. Every other page was a "what, this guy too?" discovery.
I had to read this publication twice. First just to get a general grasp, the second time to enter all the names into my computer. Now, the next time some White House honcho spouts off again about law, order and patriotism, I can look up with a mouse click what murder/plunder/treason he did to get that post. (The DIY solution to "fair and balanced" news.)
The main revelation of the book is not that every recent Presidential administration is a criminal gang; that's pretty much common wisdom since the Taft administration. It is that Iran-Contra is not over. The activity never stopped to this very day, only the scandal faded away. The book contains other important discoveries too, and it would be worth buying even just to play criminal bingo - who finds more current administration names in the crime accounts. As of 2004, this is the who's who reference of government criminality.
Once you read it, there are some places on the net, like Hawaii Observer, or From The Wilderness which fit Martin's information into the greater picture. To fully master that level, though, you need read this book first.

...heard about the book from the Bartcop.com website and was amazed at the allegations, so I decide to get the book with a little trepidation.
What follows is stunning, scary, and thouroughly po's the reader. As I read the book, the thing that keeps going through my mind is surely law suits will be flying or Al will be as he mentions about several others, be "eliminated." But he reminds the reader he simply knows too much to be elimnated.
Being from Arizona I get to see how accurate Martin is when he mentions bank fraud in Arizona and mentions our ex-Governor Fife Symington. Symington was in fact involved in "creative" accounting and convicted of that, and resigned as Governor that day. Martin mentions he was imprisoned, he never was, but came very close, even the local news media was showing the Federal country club where he would be residing for the next week.
This book also convinces the reader that the conservative hero worship of Ollie North is absolutely sickening.

If this author is to be believed, then the nightmare that General Eisenhower predicted in his farewell address, has already arrived. Behind the screen of "national security secrecy," our democracy has been hijacked and turned into a full-fledged rightwing "Criminocracy."

According to Al Martin, the umbrella used to do so has been the "Iran-Contra scandal." Martin, once an insider, is now on the outside, and yet, somehow, so far has lived to tell his story. And his story is this: The "Iran-Contra scandal" was much more than just a single series of "guns for hostage transactions." Indeed, it was a carefully constructed framework for still-running series of state sponsored criminal enterprises, all run out of the Republican Party. It is a framework that was established during the Reagan administration mostly under the tutelage of George HW Bush, obviously taking advantage of Reagan's not paying attention to what was going on right under his nose in his own administration. The organization is called "the Cause" and "the Enterprise."

Reagan and Bush's "Big Dog" rightwing anti-Communist life-long political contributors financed the initial layout to get the organization up and running, after which it generated enough income off the backs of American taxpayers on its own to be self-sustaining. And here we are talking about hundreds of billions if not trillions of taxpayer dollars.
