Spying, Lying, Murder and The Brothers Dulles
Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 19, 2016
If you want to learn how we got into the mess we are in The Brothers by Stephen Kinzer is essential reading.
The brothers are Secretary of State John Foster Dulles and his brother first CIA direct Allen Dulles.
You will learn how our current foreign policy of spying, lying and murder and the ongoing blowback got its start. The brothers unusual upbringing and quirky personality development is as interesting as their programs of international coercion and chaos.
It also makes you appreciate the successful US government brainwashing propaganda campaign and our former ignorance (the sheeple still are) that allowed us to accept icon names such as Dulles International Airport and the J. Edgar Hoover building.
I came across this pdf in antiwar.com. It is an excellent overview of the book and the brothers.
As the Cold War entered its hottest phase in the early 1950s, a hard
line CIA officer named Harry Rositzke was
given one of America’s most urgent jobs.
