Extralegal assassinations, unwarranted domestic surveillance, interventionist wars at the behest of corporate interests, torture or other activities of that stripe – these all have their roots in the Dulles era in which covert, corporate power developed into a well-oiled and unaccountable machine running roughshod. These dark forces have continued to operate regardless of who is elected president; and the refusal to face them has caused the Democratic Party to lose its way, writes Alex Sill.

Right about the time that Lee Harvey Oswald joined the Marines, the CIA ... reached the conclusion that they needed a new plane that would far exceed [the U2]. ... it makes sense that the CIA would want to ... take the knowledge that the U2 is most likely going to get hit at some point and build a counter-intelligence mission around it. Oswald may have been a part of such a mission, reasons Mark Prior.

So far, it hasn't happened, laments Jim DiEugenio.

An interesting, well-organized, and crafted book. [Haslam] has given us a documented, insightful, and arresting alternative to the unsatisfactory, or missing, official story [of Mary Sherman's death]; that alternative may have huge implications down to the present day. His work deserves attention and accolades, concludes Jim DiEugenio.
