Latest upcoming additions to the Updated Annotated Bibliography I got the Site fixed--the links work again and my ISP explained why my "fixes" initially didn't fix the problem (case sensitivity on the site server) but they didn't really explain why the links started bombing out in the first place--which resulted in me "reworking" them and inadvertantly mis-casing the titles. Other than--I believe he said something about "sharing" problems. Anyway, things that are supposed to click and move, do now. The material for Looks and Great Old Record of the Grand Old Party is all non-disk--that is, I'll have to scan it into disk first.
Kimmery, Anthony. Covert Action Information Bulletin Summer 1992. Here appears yet another indicator that Bush may have been OSS in World War II. At Yale, he worked closely with the CIA's full-time recruiter. At that time, CIA was headed by Allen Dulles. Says this source, it's unlikely this guy didn't at least talk to Bush about joining CIA.
Of course, that wouldn't have been necessary if he'd been OSS all along. The OSS, like the CIA, sometimes "impersonated" military personnel. If Dulles, as an OSS bigwig in 1942 and Prescott's attorney and business partner at Standard Oil and affiliated banking firms, got George in as a pilot at 18--against Naval regs.--maybe it was because he got him in as OSS. That would help explain why he and his crew were taken to the Lexington on June 19, instead of back to their own carrier, the normal path for crews who had merely water landed due to engine trouble after a short flight--the official version of events. The Lexington, as we've sometimes seen, was the official intelligence hub of the Seventh Fleet branch under Admiral Mitscher.
So, at Yale, Bush worked closely with the CIA recruiter. And never even got interested in joining, until, in 1976, he was suddenly appointed to be DCI--Director of the whole Agency? Give me a break! Obviously, no President is going to trust such a position to an inexperienced non-member of the CIA!
This website lists what could be described as a "legitimate conspiracy" group that investigates stories sometimes appearing on PBS-TV's Frontline program. Robert Parry, one member, has written, produced and sourced two books and at least two Frontline"s on the subject of the 1980 "October Surprise" scandal and has continued to investigate it. In 1998, his latest book on that subject was The October Surprise X-Files, (see reference below), so named because Parry located a group of previously-classified US government documents in a former women's restroom-turned-storage area ignored by a Congressional investigating group in 1993.
(Turns out the chief counsel of the Committee had ties to BCCI that he had to cover up.)
Other items by other members of this "consortium" have also appeared
Frontline. This is real-world conspiracy. There's plenty of
that kind of thing around. No need to manufacture things!
Excerpts from Lyle Courtsal website's Annotated Bibliography:
Following is an excerpt from the
Annotated Bibliography that appears at the "dopewar" website set up,
maintained and copyrighted by Lyle Courtsal. This is only an excerpt,
with references to books that have the greatest relevance to the focus
of this website. It
should be understood, however, that a particular book's central theme
should not be construed as
endorsed by me in listing it here; rather, only a particular point--or
even a bit of information--may
be all I'm really "endorsing" from any given book below. Also, the fact
a book doesn't appear
below, though it appears in Courtsal's original Annotated Bibliography
at his site, should not be
construed to mean I see that book as worthless; rather, merely that it
is not as directly relevant to
the theme of this website. Texts are not listed alphabetically or in
any other set order. The
annotations are Lyle Courtsal's not mine.
The Power Elite C. Wright Mills (NY: Oxford UP, 1956).

Asylums: Essays on the Social Situation of Mental Patients and other Inmates Erving Goffman. (NY: Doubleday 1990). Excellent perspective on mandated hospitalization as incarceration; also applies to court-mandated in-patient drug treatment, though not as intensively.
Alternative Pursuits for America's Third Century: A Resource Book on New Perceptions, Processes, and Programs with Implications for the Prevention of Drug Abuse Ed. by Louisa Messolonghites (Rockville, MD: GPO, 1974). One must wonder why these ideas weren't integrated into the programs of the "War on Drugs".
A Systems Approach to Drug Treatment Freda Adler (Philadelphia, PA: Dorrance, 1974). Recovery systems and support in the community. Complete, competent, and vastly underutilized perspective and method.
Sane Asylum: Inside the Delancey Street Foundation Charles Hampden-Turner (San Francisco, CA: San Francisco Co., 1976). Good paradigm for constructive transformation, though a little intense. Also those with intensive post-traumatic stress fell through the cracks without getting the specialized care they needed. There will be much more of this syndrome in our culture of abuse as time goes on.
The Authoritarian Personality T. Adorno, et. al. (NY: Harper, 1950). Beautiful and self- explanatory. F scale test is a tried and true test for dangerous authoritarian characteristics.
Collected Works (including Vol.1: The Neurotic Personality of our Time; New Ways in Psychoanalysis; Our Inner Conflicts. Vol.2: Self Analysis; Neurosis and Human Growth Karen Horney (NY: Norton, 1963). Vol#1 is great text on manic compulsivity and projective inversion. Great for understanding your local parasitic fascist elites.

Corporate Crime and Violence; Big Business Power and the Abuse of the Public Trust Russell Mokhiber (San Francisco, CA: Sierra, 1988) On the crooks that got away and why.

The Man Who Knew Too Much Richard Russell (NY: Carroll, 1992) Excellent work on the behavior of U.S. intelligence agencies as exposed in the Kennedy assassination conspiracy. The section on Eugene Dinkins is chilling. Mr. Nagell was recently murdered.
The Myth of Soviet Military Supremacy Tom Gervasi (NY: Harper, 1986). Reveals how false information on soviet military strength was used to manipulate the American public into sanctioning a policy of aggressive expansionism.
The Fire This Time: U.S. War Crimes in the Gulf Ramsey Clark (NY: Emeryville, CA:Thunder's Mouth, 1992). On George Bush's biggest crimes against humanity. Project Censored Yearbook 1998 has an article listed that tells how the Department of Defense 'lost' the medical files of 700,000 Gulf War veterans. How convenient.
Less Than Slaves: Jewish Forced Labor and the Quest for Compensation Benjamin Ferencz (Cambridge, MA: Harvard UP, 1979). Relates Nazism and corporate economic predation.
The Ukrainian Holocaust of 1933 Vasyl Hryshko (Toronto,CAN: Bahrainy, 1983). On the state's use of deprivation as a means of mass starvation. One must wonder why the U.S. government studied them intensively in 1985.
The Other Nuremberg Arnold Brackman (NY: Morrow, 1987). On the prosecution of the Japanese for running drug monopolies and using biological warfare, something the UK and US have been doing for awhile now.
The Age of Triage Richard L.Rubenstein (Boston: Beacon, 1983). On the tactics of elite theft of peasant land in Ireland and England and the mass starvations that resulted. Interesting perspective on the "three strikes, you're out" laws currently being legitimized in the US. It wrongly validates that it is OK for some people to die.
Friendly Fascism Bertram Gross (NY: Evans, 1980). On why parasitic fascists smile (we're being scammed and we don't get the joke.) The crocodile smiles because he tastes fresh blood.

The Cult of Counterterrorism: The Weird World of Spooks, Counterterrorists, Adventurers, and the Not Quite Professionals Neil Livingston (NY: Free, 1989). "Counterterrorism" plus George Schultz's doctrine of "preemptive counterinsurgency" equals revolutionary fascist insurgency. Now we know who the real subversives are.
Moonstruck: A Memoir of My Life in a Cult Allen Wood (NY: Morrow, 1979). Author details attending conferences and doing support work for the World Anti-Communist League in South Korea and other places.
Agents of Repression Ward Churchill (Boston: South End, 1988). A good history of the tactics of political repression utilized by the FBI.

Jensen, Carl and Project Censored staff. Censored: The News That Didn't Make the News--and Why. (Chapel Hill, NC: Shelburne, 1993). Documents that prescription drug fatalities outstripped illegal drug fatalities 8,000 to 3,000 in 1992. Also very complete on the systemic criminal activities of the Reagan-Bush insanity.
---------.The Project Censored Yearbook; The News That Didn't Make the News--and Why 1994. Documents a study that shows that the DARE program does not reduce teen drug and alcohol use. Of course, it is a great 700 million dollar back door subsidy for your local police. Do you feel safer?
The COINTELPRO Papers Ward Churchill and Jim Vander Wall (Boston: South End, 1988). History of a national program of political repression undertaken by the FBI.
Blacklisted News: Secret Histories from Chicago '68 to 1984 Blacklisted News c/o Overthrow (NY: PO Box 392, Canal St. Station, NY 10012 or Bleecker, 1983). Chock full of stories about US politics that will round out your political perspective. Priceless!

The United States Penetration of Brazil Jan K. Black (Philadelphia: UP, 1977). Excellent historical reference on the economic and political tactics and motivations of the 1964 coup in Brazil which replaced a popular democracy with a military dictatorship. Great work on a paradigm of criminal political behavior which left Brazil so indebted some analysts wonder if the country will ever run in the black again. Great example of neo-colonial resource and capital extraction.
The Hanna Industrial Complex Edie Black (NY: North American Congress on Latin America, 1969). Shows how resource grabbing was a major contributing factor and reason for the Brazilian coup of 1964.
Argentina: 1943-1976 Donald Hodges (Albuquerque, N.M.: UP, 1976).

Describes Oliver North's coordinating role in the contra resupply operations, which included facilitating large-scale cocaine running into the U.S.. This book is probably the best book on the South American portion of the contra resupply network. See also The Big White Lie and articles on ex-DEA agent Celerino Castillos' investigations in El Salvador, detailed in The Seattle Post-Intelligencer June 17, 1994; Former agent accuses North.

L.A. Secret Police Mike Rothmiller & Ivan Goldman (NY: Pocket, 1992). On the attempted assassination of an L.A. police officer investigating CIA-supported cocaine running; an aspect of the Iran-Contra scandal. Also good on what life as a cop can sometimes become.
Inside the Company; CIA Diary Phillip Agee (NY: Stonehill, 1975). Good work on the indoctrination and training of a CIA agent. [Important to note here that, in one of my scenarios involving General Bowen, also former OSS/CIA and his book Immaculate Deception, Agee may have been an inspiration for Bowen's original attempt at publication, circa 1980 (with his book as the source of the radio ad(?)And Robert Maxwell-- who was an Israeli double-agent in British intelligence, arch blackmailer and politician exposer in Britain via such ads, and also infamous as to not keeping his word to publish promised texts, ala Rumanian and Hungarian Red dictators' biographies--could be both advertiser and announcer. (One possible scenario. See also my sources in the Annotated Bibliography for Tim, George Bush and Me on this website for more details. This is also detailed in "A Working Title, Author and Source" in the same book.--mcs.]
On the Run Philip Agee (Seacaucus, NJ: Lyle Stuart, 1987). Deals with the tactics used to harass and invalidate Mr. Agee after he left the CIA and how he dealt with them.[See also references to David Ferrie's claims in the JFK "literature" (however semi-bogus the conclusions, his statements on this point stand); and also Fred Haobsch's descriptions of his experiences as "former" CIA, as told to ABC's Nightline and as cited by me in the chapter "Fred Haobsch's Iraq-gate Charges" in Tim, George Bush and Me.--mcs].
