Lt. Col. Karen Kwiatkowski, former NSA and Pentagon official and arch-critic of the Iraq invasion, has strongly recommended Family of Secrets. She recently discussed the book and offered her own thoughts on the Bushes in a column for LewRockwell.com:
I recently read Russ Baker’s Family of Secrets, because Lew interviewed Russ Baker and it sounded great. The book delivers, although I suspect there are a lot of Bush family secrets that remain unexposed. I am personally curious about any Bush secret recipes on the back burner back in March 1981. As history, the Wikipedia version of the Reagan assassination attempt reads like a CIA moonlighter’s script for a movie of the week.
Baker’s research led him back to the days of the JFK assassination, where HW, or “Poppy” Bush was not where he said he was, after all these years. You’ll have to read the book for a real, and real interesting, lesson in modern American democracy.
