This book is a complete and total crock and based upon the most useless and pathetic of a thesis, namely that we must be afraid of the CIA's personnel moonlighting and selling their supposed truth-telling, or dishonesty unmasking, talents to the corporate world. With the majority of the intelligence community now privatized in America, this book is particularly senseless. The only interesting (and accidental) factoid in this book is the mention of Jeffrey Starr, of the DIA, being on loan to Goldman Sachs' Business Intelligence Group (pp. 190-191), How is Jeffrey Starr related to the founder of AIG, Cornelius Vander Starr? What is his relation to the grandnephew of the founder, Kenneth Starr, the special prosecutor appointed during the second half of the Clinton administration? Also, isn't it interesting that Jeffrey Starr is now the lobbyist in Washington, D.C., for G4S (Group Four Securicor), the number one private military/private police corporation in existence, and one of the top three private employers?
