Andrew Kreig's book draws upon his life-time of experiences with our political system as an investigative reporter, attorney, author, business strategist and non-profit executive working in Washington, D.C. Kreig readily acknowledges his past work for powerful companies, along with his work investigating official misconduct through the non-partisan legal reform group, the Justice Integrity Project. He also has a unique perspective as the son of Margaret Kreig, a best-selling author who confessed her role to him as a covert CIA asset when her work took her to China during the early 1970s.
I know that some of you have been dismissive of my past reporting on this blog about the degree to which the CIA and the national security state apparatus has penetrated this country from top to bottom as a bit too conspiratorial but Kreig's book confirms the worst fears. Ideologically, Kreig comes from the opposite end of the political perspective, but his well-researched work leads him to the same conclusion that I have reached about President Barack Obama's puppet strings being pulled by the very same persons who pulled the strings of both Bush presidents and Bill Clinton.
Kreig closely examines Obama's hidden family history and unequivocally concludes that Obama and his other immediate family members, including his mother and grandparents, all had backgrounds working for the CIA long before his name entered the national discussion just like President George H.W. Bush and his son, President George W. Bush. Kreig doesn't overlook the Bush family ties to the financing of the Nazis prior to and during World War II like the mainstream media does. Similarly, Kreig's research picks up on young Bill Clinton work as an intelligence asset dating back to his early college years. Romney's ties to Bain Capital and the Mormon Church also explain his ties to the same puppet masters.
So why didn't the news media discuss the hidden pasts of all of our recent presidents who were performing work covertly for the CIA prior to launching their political careers? Kreig helps explain those puzzling omissions by the mainstream news media, as well as coverage of other public affairs by connecting the dots too many ignore. Yes, their corporate bosses answer to the same people at the end of the day.
Kreig observes three particular omissions by the media that peaked his curiosity, including the nearly-absent coverage of the post-911 anthrax attacks on members of the media and U.S. Senators, the unusually aggressive prosecution of Jeane Palfrey, the so-called D.C. Madam, and Karl Rove's engineering of the 2007 purge of a number of U.S. Attorneys around the country, and Rove's role in the political prosecution of Alabama's Democratic Gov. Don Siegelman. In case you were curious, Rove's treacherous spying and covert ways are well-documented in Kreig's book.
Kreig's book also offers the stories behind the stories on a number of recent topics of interest, including the resignation of Gen. David Petraeus as CIA Director, Benghazi, plots to commit massive election fraud in 2012 through electronic voting machines, the CIA connection to the Boston Marathon bombing suspects and the latest and newest mysteries revolving around massive federal surveillance of American in the aftermath of whistle blower Edward Snowden's disclosures.
If you like drinking the Kool-Aid that is served up to you by the leaders of the Democratic and Republican Parties, Kreig's book isn't your drink. If you are looking for an insightful, well-researched and critical analysis of the thoroughly corrupt, unethical, vindictive and self-serving elites who have turned our government and nation into something completely unimaginable in the worst nightmares of our Founding Fathers, then Kreig's book will satisfy your thirst for learning more than the half-baked and grossly misleading political analysis and disinformation of the giant corporate media to create the false reality they want us to believe. As Kreig explains in the book's preface, it's for "those who want to understand the news, not just watch it."
