Editorial Reviews

What secrets have been passed down to each United States president? Why does Air Force One always appear with its left side facing the public and how much does the president know about activating the on-board flares to repel missiles? What other secrets are available to the president, and what information is so highly classified that even the commander in chief's Top Secret-3 security clearance is not enough to gain access? HISTORYTM uncovers the fascinating truths behind some of the most confidential secrets in American history in THE PRESIDENT S BOOK OF SECRETS. Interviews with former intelligence operatives, renowned historians and archivists show how classified information is treated in the highest circles of political power, how it s preserved throughout history, and who ensures continuity when a new leader is elected.

Yo I just saw this in HD on the History Channel and could not believe what was revealed to us. I always wondered if they would come clean to us about the secrets behind the White House doors on things covering: Area 51, The Illuminati, The Budget, The Skull and Bones Club and various other secrets a president elect gets to find out about once they get in. It seems like just getting to know these things is reason enough to want to run because there are things being kept from us that would be game changers if they were officially known to the public. This program is a bold step forward sparking much convo in any arena and I hope they delve even further in the future. Please check this out. You will not be disappointed!! Peace!!

The simple fact that the elected 'President of the United States' doesn't have the highest security clearance is enough to draw into doubt, if not destroy, the myth that the USA has a 'representative' government.

Most people don't even know that the President has limited clearance.

The question we should all ask is: if the President is not at the highest level in government, who is?

Why aren't we allowed to even know who has the highest clearance, or what is the position of such a person and who appoints such a person?

Who decides what the President is allowed to know / have access to?

This documentary doesn't answer those important questions.

This DVD is interesting. I didn't expect any State secrets to be shown so you shouldn't expect that either. A lot of it was what you'd expect; things everyone has speculated on being talked about in general by people close to the Presidency. There are some fun facts talked about that you'd thought were considered bogus by everyone but nothing Earth shattering.

If you like American History, you will love this. It will keep you asking questions about those leaders in charge and if there really is a book of secrets, I believe that there is a lot of secrets in our Government..and this is worth the watch if you like things like this. I enjoyed the DVD very much.

Skeptics or conspiracy theory lovers it matters not. One thing is for sure. The head of any goverment body regardless of country will always have access to undisclosed information. So worry not about how much of this information contained is the truth or how much is just rumour for the fun is in the idea.

This could have been a great documentary about the national intelligence system in America, how the president receives and uses classified information, etc. Instead, interviews with people who have actually worked in the White House and dealt with issues of national security are interrupted by the narrator randomly mentioning "The President's Book of Secrets"!

Most of this documentary was a discussion of the real secrets that the government keeps and how the government would act in an emergency to protect the president and ensure the government would continue to function. Then, the narrator would interject with something like this (my tongue is only slightly in my cheek), "Some people believe that there is a talking Dragon that lives in a bunker far below the White House and that if the President and Vice President and the Cabinet were all killed, the dragon would emerge to rule the country until the emergency had passed. If this is true, don't you think the president would read about it in his BOOK OF SECRETS?!?" Then, the people being interviewed would discuss the actual plan of succession, never mentioning the dragon (or whatever conspiracy theory the narrator brought up) or the "Book of Secrets"

Until the end, I was convinced that the people being interviewed had no idea that this documentary (can you really call it that?) would be about the Presidential Book of Secrets, because they literally never once referenced it until the last three minutes. Then, there were comments from only 3 people about whether a book existed and each of them said they doubted it and one mentioned how dumb it would be to keep all of our secrets in one place, because it could be easily stolen.

This a fun documentary type show, although I believe it may sensationalize or exaggerate at times. Very interesting nonetheless, and I think if you enjoy history channel programs, you'll enjoy this show and format style.
