The author of the present treatise was shocked out of the “American Dream” reverie, and into the awareness that something was terribly wrong in this country when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. This life-transforming event eventually led to increasingly serious investigation and research, not to mention an odyssey of adventure and intrigue in the U.S. Army's Special Forces - The “Green Berets”. It also led to participation in the development of the US Pentagon’s first top secret, experimental, “Cold War” Long Range Reconnaissance Patrols (LRRP’s) in Southern Germany, whose initial mission was intelligence gathering (combat espionage - behind enemy lines surveillance – *Author’s note), engaging in “shock operations”, and tactical placement of Special Atomic Demolition Munitions (SADM’s, or “Tactical-Nukes”) at strategic Eastern European border locations in the event of a feared Russian land invasion. These were the Armys equivalent to the perhaps more distinguished and renowned Navy's SEAL Teams. A serious parachute malfunction, and the injuries resulting from a near fatal plunge from an aircraft at an altitude of twelve hundred feet (400 meters) cut short my military career and launched me on another adventure across Europe and into the Middle East as a journalist during the 1967 Arab/Israeli, “Six-Day War”.
I am currently reading the books Beyond Our Consent and The Secret Team to get a small overview of how the CIA was subverted from its intended mission and became the most destructive force on the planet, join me.
