His books on the intelligence community include Widows and The Secret History of the CIA. He works in Washington, . where he is president of the Public Education Center, an incubator for important media stories.

His books on the intelligence community include Widows and The Secret History of the CIA. Very nice work on the "Safari Club" and quite possibly the "Enterprise". My only concern about the book is that history came to a halt during the Clinton Administration. If the "Sept 11 2001" incident was the "culmination of blowback" by this "private sector" intelligence group what of the Clinton Administration's actions and omissions in Afghanistan, Sudan and Saudi Arabia?

Prelude to Terror will detail how the acquisition of intelligence by a core group of officers became inseparable not only from power politics but from their own private business interests. Ultimately it became difficult to discern which was the driving force, heightening the tensions between those sworn to protect the secrets and those elected to serve our republic. elected administration. The Wilson model of private businesses fueling intelligence operations would spread worldwide shortly after Wilson was turned into a fugitive- by Shackley and his other partners.

This is not a perfect book. According to the author, Allen Dulles has the first private intelligence service at 44 Wall Street, relying heavily on the recruitment of former Nazis. I had no idea while I was at CIA as a clandestine officer that there are really multiple CIA’s and that there are three external CIAS: the Safari Club led by Saudi Arabia, with France, Egypt, Morocco and Iran (during the Shah’s time, not since); the murder network (South Africa, Israel, South Korea, and probably also Chile and Argentina.

After decades of writing and research about American intelligence, Joseph Trento has written the most authoritative indictment of CIA splinter groups, two generations of Bush family involvement in illegal financial networks, and the funding of the agents of terror. Prelude to Terror reveals the history of a corrupt group of spymasters—led by Ted Shackley—who were fired when Jimmy Carter became president, but who maintained their intelligence portfolio and used it to create a private intelligence network. After this rogue group helped engineer Carter’s defeat in 1980 and allied with George H.W. Bush, these former CIA men planned and conducted what became the Iran–Contra scandal and, through the Saudis, allied the U.S. with extreme elements in Islam. The CIA’s number-one front man, Edwin P. Wilson, was framed by Shackley and his cohorts so that Wilson’s operations could be taken over. For the first time the story of how CIA director George H. W. Bush was recruited into this network, and brought it into the bosom of the Saudi royal family, is told in detail, as well as how this group’s manipulation of the CIA bureaucracy allowed Osama bin Laden’s fundraising to thrive as al Qaeda flourished under Saudi and CIA protection.

This book picks up after the Dulles Bros. (Alan and John Foster) of post WWII begat their version of a Shadow Government that the bankers and their politicos first birthed in the early 1900s. The C.I.A. is reeling from the exposures of the Watergate Commission, and those operatives with unfinished business and a penchant for power must find new sources of funding their clandestine activities. It's the basis for many an exciting spy novel or movie production, but it's not imaginary. Real people, perhaps in the millions, are killed, maimed and otherwise harmed by their deceit and the cover-ups by the corporate media, banks and politicians who rely on them to do their devilish deeds. Expose and Draining the Swamp, which deepens with every day.

Stunning! Joe Trento does it again, bringing us a terror tale of CIA misconduct. Like his other great books, this investigative reporter delves deep into the CIA's secrets and comes out with one heck of a story.

This read is not for the average person and if you are familiar with that murky hinterland that comprises intelligence and politics, you will probably get enjoyment and information from this book. There are times when I have problems grappling with what is presented as fact but Mr. Trento writes with authority and this book deserves to be considered on its merits.

Was not sure how good this would be... but turned out to be an AMAZING historical account of how a select few have controlled, manipulated and corrupted the American society.
