should be titled INCOMPETENCE AND STUPIDITY

Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush - 5 presidents from both parties, 30 years of lying to the American public. WOW. The US has to find some Presidential candidates with a moral center because these 5 had none. The only thing these five have done is advance the agenda of Islamist extremists.

This book wove together bits of confusing news stories over the decades to other books I have read and it all is clear to me now.

I heartily and profoundly recommend this book to everyone as we enter another presidential cycle. I hope this cycle ends now.

Heavy on details

The book provides a great deal of insight on the nuclear trade. The detail was a little overwhelming especially with regard to the names of all of the perpertrators and accomplices.
