Format: Paperback
Former professional wrestler, ex-US Navy SEAL, movie actor, TV show producer and host, past governor of the US state of Minnesota, and author of five bestselling books, Jesse Ventura has put together perhaps his most sensational and revealing work yet.

The idea for his latest book came on the heels of his last one, American Conspiracies. For this one, he has chosen 63 separate documents, most of them somewhat recently declassified and now available through the US Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). He picked 63 from hundreds because that number was the year (1963) of the Kennedy assassination.

Within the book, as the inside of the dust cover says, "He proves that we've been duped into wars we shouldn't be fighting, lied to about intelligence, fed hogwash about terrorism, and tricked into losing more and more of our civil liberties.... Government officials can and do disregard the law, torture people, break promises, practically rewrite the Constitution, and keep on lying without raising any eyebrows.... Today, pretty much everything the government does is presumed secret."

Not counting the Introduction, "Why You Need to Read This Book," and the Epilogue, "Resources for Curious Readers," Ventura divides the 63 declassified papers into five categories: (1) Our Scandalous Postwar History, (2) Government, Military, and Corporate Secrets, (3) Shady White Houses, (4) 9/11, and (5) The "War on Terror."

Before showing each document, many being excerpts from photocopies of the originals, Ventura includes a short synopsis pointing out what he feels are the highlights of its text. This is most helpful as some are old and difficult to read transcriptions and others are detailed testimony from congressional committee hearings.

I wonder how many more documents Jesse could have revealed?
This is a must read and it's a shame that the mainstream have tried to bury this book by not reviewing it.
I urge everyone to buy and share.

After being a big fan of Jesse Ventura's exposés, I was very keen to read this book. Sadly his publishing house - Skyhorse- has let him down badly. Much of what the government doesn't want us to read, is still unread by this purchaser, & the reason is that some of the reproduced documents are so difficult to read due to smudging or miniscule print, I found some were even unreadable. It would have been helpful if Skyhorse had provided a transcript of the less legible texts.The smudging for effect (mimicking cyclostyling,) on chapter titles just gives the book a cheap look. From what IS readable, I did appreciate and would happily do further research. Ventura provides sources for curious readers. If you need reading glasses to read, then think twice before purchasing. I am in the 50's age group & found it frustrating. Personally I found this book rather a waste of money on the whole, but only for the reasons stated above. I would not buy from this publishing house again.

He describes the behavior of the paranoid schizophrenics who tend to gravitate towards jobs in the "security" services.
They are not capable of living in harmony with their neighbors and frequently tend to gravitate to the exclusive club of "In people". This is fairly typical of introspective children who have a "Me or Them" attitude to their classmates. Based on fear, they need constant reassurance that they are top dogs. Bullies become torturers.
Such people are very useful in a world governed by ignorance and greed. The tragedy is that others who get caught up in the web, often for idealistic reasons, are trapped. Whistle blowing is a dangerous occupation; that fact does not say much for the rest of us.
PS. The American spellings are due to your word processor! I have given up arguing!!!
