The Secret Government, Drugs and Terrorism

It’s always been said that wherever the CIA goes, drugs come back. That may be a simplification. Evidence is mounting to suggest that the heroin trade has gone global, not just in its distribution, but in the ability of the players to stage world-changing events.

  • Review: Gold Warriors – America’s Secret Recovery Of Yamashita’s Gold
    This book, “Gold Warriors”, by Sterling and Peggy Seagrave is really, really good. It can be expensive because it is out of print, but I bought it long ago and it has been waiting in my “to read” pile. Affordable copies can still be found, I ordered one for a friend and apparently it is […]

  • Review: “Mind Games – The Assassination Of John Lennon”
    “Mind Games” is a great “Who-Done-it”. Of course, I am old enough to have remembered the December 1980 killing of Lennon – as well as that of JFK, King, And RFK. In fact, there are multiple similarities between the assassination of Robert Kennedy and that of John Lennon. Author David Whelan has deeply studied the […]
