Vanligvis er jeg ganske strikt på ingen engelske bidrag her på bloggen, men hvis nå noen spør pent, så sier jeg ikke nei.
Jeff J Brown intervjuer Douglas Valentine, forfatteren av boka The CIA as Organized Crime. Tittelen sier vel en hel del. Et av hovedemnene i boka er hvordan metoder utviklet under Vietnam-krigen, særlig hvordan befolkningen i Vietnam ble holdt under kontroll, fortsetter til i den dag i dag.
“Douglas Valentine writes books that rip the bloody veil off the criminal enterprise known as the US government. When he does this, he combines incredibly in-depth research, interviews and an inviting style of prose that exposes the dark truth about the US nation and its national security state. The CIA as Organized Crime continues that tradition and is an important and crucial text. ”
RON JACOBS, Counterpunch
“Thanks to extensive interviews, he has an almost intimate feel for the operating mentality of the agency, why they operate the way they do—not only their bloody-minded ruthlessness or their rationalizations, important and interesting as these are—and why they are unbothered by such distinctions as Republican or Democratic presidents.” PAUL BUHLE, Portside
