The Wall Street Journal

The Wall Street Journal praised the book and pointed out that Wright raises alarming and well-investigated allegations that Cofer Black (currently Romney's security pick) and employed criminals who were active while serving as security contractors, AFTER being promoted by the CIA. ALL of this has occurred, from what I read from the book, due to a frightening and under-played provision or law that Bush brought into effect that allows Presidents to use private security firms in our wars abroad WITHOUT the approval or knowledge of Congress and we the people. YES, please have Wright on your show. I'd like to hear what he has to say. As well as some of the academics who have been raising these concerns -- such as Deborah Avant and others who wrote a book, recently, called something like Who Governs the World... not sure on the title.

Love the work you all do. Do

Love the work you all do. Do you think you might do an interview with Evan Wright on his new book, How to Get Away with Murder in America? It's about a man named Enrique Prado who has seemingly deep connections to Miami drug underworld, anti-Castro Cuban paramilitaries, and was able to rise to highest ranks of CIA and now Blackwater/XE/whatever it goes by now, as a chief counter-terrorism expert/operative. Here a link to book description:
