    Re: JFK, the CIA, the KGB and Russia today

    I come now to an examination of how Joseph Trento’s The Secret History of the CIA may be read as a seemingly seamless construction largely built from a corpus of material supplied by James Angleton...

    Re: JFK, the CIA, the KGB and Russia today

    Before I come to this comparative appraisal of the writings of Trento, Douglas, and an anonymous CIA author, I am restricting this post to a complex analogy based on a work of fiction, illustrating...

    Re: JFK, the CIA, the KGB and Russia today

    There is a way of seeking further authentication of the Gregory Douglas material. As I explained, it comes from the boxes of ‘personal’ files that Robert Crowley took home on his retirement from the...

    Re: JFK, the CIA, the KGB and Russia today

    definitely not, politicians do not write that well, and often do not think much either.

    My bet: PhD and post doc in history, or in political science, or both. Or again, a renown writer - gosh you...
