American Betrayal



"It is not simply a good book about history. It is one of those books which makes history. ... "

-- Vladimir Bukovsky, co-founder of the Soviet dissident movement and author of Judgment in Moscow, and Pavel Stroilov, author of Behind the Desert Storm.

"Diana West is distinguished from almost all political commentators because she seeks less to defend ideas and proposals than to investigate and understand what happens and what has happened. This gives her modest and unpretentious books and articles the status of true scientific inquiry, shifting the debate from the field of liking and disliking to being and non-being."

-- Olavo de Carvalho

If you're looking for something to read, this is the most dazzling, mind-warping book I have read in a long time. It has been criticized by the folks at Front Page, but they don't quite get what Ms. West has set out to do and accomplished. I have a whole library of books on communism, but -- "Witness" excepted -- this may be the best.

-- Jack Cashill, author of Deconstructing Obama: The Lives, Loves and Letters of America's First Postmodern President and First Strike: TWA Flight 800 and the Attack on America

"Every once in a while, something happens that turns a whole structure of preconceived ideas upside down, shattering tales and narratives long taken for granted, destroying prejudice, clearing space for new understanding to grow. Diana West's latest book, American Betrayal, is such an event."

 -- Henrik Raeder Clausen, Europe News

West's lesson to Americans: Reality can't be redacted, buried, fabricated, falsified, or omitted. Her book is eloquent proof of it.

-- Edward Cline, Family Security Matters

"I have read it, and agree wholeheartedly."

-- Angelo Codevilla, Professor Emeritus of International Relations at Boston Unversity, and fellow of the Claremont Institute. 

Enlightening. I give American Betrayal five stars only because it is not possible to give it six.

-- John Dietrich, formerly of the Defense Intelligence Agency and author of The Morgenthau Plan: Soviet Influence on American Postwar Policy.

After reading American Betrayal and much of the vituperation generated by neoconservative "consensus" historians, I conclude that we cannot ignore what West has demonstrated through evidence and cogent argument.

-- John Dale Dunn, M.D., J.D., Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons

"A brilliantly researched and argued book."

-- Edward Jay Epstein, author of Deception: The Invisible War between the KGB and the CIA, The Annals 0f Unsolved Crime 

"This explosive book is a long-needed answer to court histories that continue to obscure key facts about our backstage war with Moscow. Must-reading for serious students of security issues and Cold War deceptions, both foreign and domestic."

-- M. Stanton Evans, author of Stalin's Secret Agents and Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America's Enemies

Her task is ambitious; her sweep of crucial but too-little-known facts of history is impressive; and her arguments are eloquent and witty. ... American Betrayal is one of those books that will change the way many of us see the world.

-- Susan Freis Falknor, Blue Ridge Forum

"American Betrayal is absolutely required reading. Essential. You're sleepwalking without it."

-- Chris Farrell, director of investigations research, Judicial Watch

"Diana West wrote a brilliant book called American Betrayal, which I recommend to everybody ... It is a seminal work that will grow in importance." 

-- Newt Gingrich, former House Speaker 

"This is a must read for any serious student of history and anyone working to understand the Marxist counter-state in America."

-- John Guandolo, president, Understanding the Threat, former FBI special agent 

“What Diana West has done is to dynamite her way through several miles of bedrock. On the other side of the tunnel there is a vista of a new past. Of course folks are baffled. Few people have the capacity to take this in. Her book is among the most well documented I have ever read. It is written in an unusual style viewed from the perspective of the historian—but it probably couldn’t have been done any other way.”

-- Lars Hedegaard, historian, journalist, founder, Danish Free Press Society

The polemics against your Betrayal have a familiar smell: The masters of the guild get angry when someone less worthy than they are ventures into the orchard in which only they are privileged to harvest. The harvest the outsider brought in, they ritually burn.

-- Hans Jansen, former professor of Islamic Thought, University of Utrecht 

No book has ever frightened me as much as American Betrayal. ... [West] patiently builds a story outlining a network of subversion so bizarrely immense that to write it down will seem too fantastic to anyone without the book’s detailed breadth and depth. It all adds up to a story so disturbing that it has changed my attitude to almost everything I think about how the world actually is. ... By the time you put the book down, you have a very different view of America’s war aims and strategies. The core question is, did the USA follow a strategy that served its own best interests, or Stalin’s? And it’s not that it was Stalin’s that is so compelling, since you knew that had to be the answer, but the evidence in detail that West provides that makes this a book you cannot ignore. 

-- Steven Kates, RMIT (Australia) Associate Professor of Economics, Quadrant

"Diana West's new book rewrites WWII and Cold War history not by disclosing secrets, but by illuminating facts that have been hidden in plain sight for decades. Furthermore, she integrates intelligence and political history in ways never done before."

-- Jeffrey Norwitz, former professor of counterterrorism, Naval War College

[American Betrayal is] the most important anti-Communist book of our time ... a book that can open people's eyes to the historical roots of our present malaise ... full of insights, factual corroboration, and psychological nuance. 

-- J.R. Nyquist, author, Origins of the Fourth World War 

Although I know [Christopher] Andrew well, and have met [Oleg] Gordievsky twice, I now doubt their characterization of Hopkins -- also embraced by Radosh and the scholarly community. I now support West's conclusions after rereading KGB: The Inside Story account 23 years later [relevant passages cited in American Betrayal]. It does not ring true that Hopkins was an innocent dupe dedicated solely to defeating the Nazis. Hopkins comes over in history as crafty, secretive and no one's fool, hardly the personality traits of a naïve fellow traveler. And his fingerprints are on the large majority of pro-Soviet policies implemented by the Roosevelt administration. West deserves respect for cutting through the dross that obscures the evidence about Hopkins, and for screaming from the rooftops that the U.S. was the victim of a successful Soviet intelligence operation.

-- Bernie Reeves, founder of The Raleigh Spy Conference, American Thinker

Diana West’s American Betrayal — a remarkable, novel-like work of sorely needed historical re-analysis — is punctuated by the Cassandra-like quality of “multi-temporal” awareness. ... But West, although passionate and direct, is able to convey her profoundly disturbing, multi-temporal narrative with cool brilliance, conjoining meticulous research, innovative assessment, evocative prose, and wit.

-- Andrew G. Bostom, PJ Media

Do not be dissuaded by the controversy that has erupted around this book which, if you insist on complete accuracy, would be characterized as a disinformation campaign.

-- Jed Babbin, The American Spectator

In American Betrayal, Ms. West's well-established reputation for attacking "sacred cows" remains intact. The resulting beneficiaries are the readers, especially those who can deal with the truth.

-- Wes Vernon, Renew America

If the Soviet penetration of Washington, D.C., was so wide and so deep that it functioned like an occupation …
If, as a result of that occupation, American statecraft became an extension of Soviet strategy …
If the people who caught on – investigators, politicians, defectors – and tried to warn the American public were demonized, ridiculed and destroyed for the good of that occupation and to further that strategy …
And if the truth was suppressed by an increasingly complicit Uncle Sam …

Would you feel betrayed?

A constant need, an occasional series -- 

When Sen. Joseph McCarthy died, shockingly, at the age of 48, he, his aides and his committee had identified at least fifty Soviet agents, ideological communists and Fifth Amendment pleaders, dedicated to the overthrow of our constitutional system, and loyal/sympathetic to Stalin, Mao and a new wave of genocidal dictators. (Indeed, here are two more.)

It was the late M. Stanton Evans, America's greatest McCarthy expert, author of Blacklisted by History, who created the table of fifty (link above), drawing proofs from personal papers, declassified FBI memos, congressional archives, intercepted Soviet communications, defector testimonies, and the like.

He wrote:  

Looking at this mass of materials and matching them up with McCarthy’s cases, the main thing to be noted is a recurring pattern of verification. Time and again, we see the suspects named by McCarthy and/or his committee–treated at the time as hapless victims–revealed in official records as what McCarthy and company said they were–except, in the typical instance, a good deal more so.

To normal Americans, some large number of Deplorables among them, this probably sounds like a monumental record of accomplishment for a US Senator, who, while beating back the media-political-complex of the 1950s seeking to destroy him (as they did), upheld his oath to defend the Constitution "against all enemies, foreign and domestic." If this is not a record elected officials today would do well to emulate I don't know what is.

However, after more than 60 years of "McCarthyism" -- the perpetual slander of Joseph McCarthy as a "witch-hunter," as opposed to an honest accounting of this fearless investigator of deep and widespread infiltration of the US government by Stalin's secret agents, which had become a virtual Soviet intelligence army occupation of FDR's Washington by the time of World War II -- Americans have been conditioned to react entirely differently. We are supposed to hate, loathe and revile McCarthy. This not only does grievous injury to a great patriot gone six decades, it imperils the safety of our nation today. The slander of "McCarthyism," wielded like a cudgel, has had the dire effect of bludgeoning our abilities to detect or even acknowledge the existence of any constitutional enemies, especially "domestic."

To avoid triggering foaming denunciations and tribal acts of ostracism over "McCarthyism," Americans have become hard-wired not to understand and not to identify and not to tell the truth about the enemy, any enemy, any threat, in order to remain in fluffly-good standing with the flock. Every now and then, a free-thinker comes along -- former Rep. Michele Bachmann comes to mind for her eminently responsible and national-security-minded efforts to ensure that Muslim Brotherhood agents were not penetrating the government policy-making chain. The Keepers of "McCarthyism" roasted Bachmann alive as the second coming of Joseph Raymond McCarthy. Remaining sheep shuddered and closed ranks.  

Until we get McCarthy right -- and by "right," I mean by overthrowing the strategic destruction of his persona and evaluating his record rationally and with fidelity to the record  -- we are not going to be able to repulse and survive the ideological assaults on our nation -- and nation's character. 

I was put in mind to post these thoughts amid the latest cries of "McCarthyism" on the Right.

Nothing new, of course, as we see in this rebuttal by Evans (one of many) in 2012, titled, "When conservatives parrot liberal lies about Joe McCarthy." It's all part of that hard-wired national consciousness based in six decades of mantra-like "court history," the lies and distortions that make up American betrayal -- and, indeed, my book of the same name. (I should mention also that it was Evans' game-changing McCarthy research that served as the jumping-off point of my own.) It is this same so-called McCarthyism that is the foundational lie of the Left, and to which the Left-battered/-subverted Right has submitted.

There are those who should know better about McCarthy and "McCarthyism," but who nonetheless keep the battering and subverting going. Note the final tweet above, for example. It is by David Horowitz, who, on the eve of Jeff Sessions' confirmation hearing, wrote: "Tomorrow, you will see a witch-hunt worse than anything McCarthy did directed by Democrats against Jeff Sessions."

"Witch-hunt" + "McCarthy": Here we see this foundational lie of the Left invoked and re-enforced by someone whose reputation and fiefdom is based on debunking the lies of the Left. 

This apparent contradiction does not surprise me, having experienced the toxic mendacity of Horowitz first-hand in the disinformation campaign aimed at killing American Betrayal with this same cudgel of "McCarthyism," using lies and distortions about the book's contents, even my person (painstakingly and thoroughly debunked here; also hereherehere...). For good measure, here is one of Stan Evans' several discussions of this extraordinary campaign (or "mugging," as he put it in another), which he framed as a new front in these same McCarthy wars over my "transgressions" against inviolate consensus-narrative.

Evans explained: 

This narrative  sets the limits of permissible comment about American Cold War policy, bounded on the one side by Roosevelt and Hopkins, representing generally speaking  the forces of good (appeasing Moscow, e.g. , only in order to win the war with Hitler), and on the other by Sen. Joe McCarthy of Wisconsin, the supposed epitome of evil.  Between these boundaries, variations are allowed, but woe betide the writer who goes beyond them. Ms. West has transgressed in both directions, sharply criticizing Roosevelt/ Hopkins and speaking kindly of Joe McCarthy.

This same historical debate could not be more white-hot relevant now that Donald Trump becomes the very first critic of the so-called liberal world order, in great part inaugurated by Roosevelt and Hopkins, to reach the White House ever.

At its core, the campaign against American Betrayal was driven by Horowitz and a tiny cabal of mainly academics whose first mission (there are others) appears to be to maintain Joseph McCarthy as a symbolic prisoner of false and defamatory propaganda; an object lesson to anyone who dares to expose the systemic Communist infiltration that was well underway by the Roosevelt Thirties and exerting, as Evans summed up, "a baleful influence on US policy to suit the aims of Moscow." In other words, this infiltration was not about simply stealing secret formulas and diplomatic papers, as "court history" tells it. No, this was existential stuff, part of the socialist/Communist/Soviet/Alinskyite/progressive/Fabian assault that has deeply subverted our nation (the wider world also), and long before the 1960s ever began. "No good can come of opening up the Stalin-FDR relationship," I heard. Really? No good for whom? It was as if there was a booby-trapped seal on curiosity about this hidden past, about what it is that Communists and Soviet agents were actually able to influence and change. As far as this cabal is concerned, there remains such a seal -- the McCarthyism slander. Hence, that battering ram of a "review" at American Betrayal, "McCarthy on Steroids" (title by Horowitz); hence, I was "McCarthy's heiress" a "crackpot," not "house-trained," etc., etc., etc. 

In case that was too subtle, Horowitz & Co. would lobby and hector privately against American Betrayal to the effect that continuing to boil McCarthy alive dead in lies was essential to preserving the conservative movement that Horowitz and his ex-radical colleagues claim to have "built" over the past thirty years, following their public conservative awakening, following Reagan's historic landslide that won him his second term. (Even now, weirdly, it seems that Horowitz is practically laying claim to the Trump agenda, which won Trump the White House back on November 8, of course, with a newly published book laying out the Trump agenda.) There is something in this line as perverse and grandiose as it would appear to be delusional. Still, a Right-sans-McCarthy is what continues to exist today, mainly if not completely, much as they would have it. I was never so shocked as when Stan Evans died in 2015 and nearly every one of the many lavish eulogies neglected to mention his greatest work, the McCarthy book, which he once told me he had been working on in a way all of his life, as if it did not exist. 

This whole controversy baffles Horowitz fans no end. David Horowitz is known to many as the "ex-Communist" of our age; conservatism's Radical Son; the Right's guide to all things Hard Left. "I was like Whittaker Chambers in their [1960s] generation," as he himself has endorsed himself. "Like Chambers, I had encounters with totalitarian forces which involved betrayal and death, and even a Soviet spy."

And even a Soviet spy. As a covert Soviet agent, Chambers not only "had encounters with," he later exposed dozens, if not scores of Soviet spies, agents of influence and assets to the FBI and the American public. Horowitz, of course, does not claim to have worked for Soviet intelligence; nor, to public knowledge, has he exposed anyone working for the Kremlin, either. Details, details. The ex-"radical"/Chambers-thing is his mystique. He keeps these creds alive with such speech-openers as: "I was born at the beginning of the Second World War into a family of high school teachers who were members of the Communist Party, and therefore were actually part of a vast conspiracy dedicated to the destruction of this country." 

Chills. Frankness. A man who knows.

If this self-styled Whittaker Chambers knows anything, though, he knows that Joseph McCarthy, along with other leading investigators in Congress, including Rep. Martin Dies (D-TX) in the House and Sen. Pat McCarran (D-NV) in the Senate, were right, or right on track -- or were certainly not engaged an imaginary "witch-hunt." He will admit as much, grudgingy; but nonetheless hangs onto that rhetorical cudgel. He'll drag in 119-year-old Joe McCarthy to dirty him up again in new and unrelated contexts, as if to reinject the poison: "The racist, McCarthyite, totalitarian movement is rearing its ugly head on college campuses ...." 

Horowitz knows not what he does, someone, in effect, tweeted at me; what he knows is the 1960s; he has a blind spot for earlier eras. If true, an extremely poor excuse. But how can it be? After all, in 1952, when Sen. McCarthy was riding high, young Horowitz was having his brief stint on the Daily flippn Worker, as "youth page" editor, as related in one of Horowitz's recurring memoirs. Pretty plugged-in-kid, to say the least. And how did he get this gig on the CPUSA flagship publication? Because "my parents were friends with Joe North, one of the paper's editors," Horowitz explains parenthetically, describing his editorial rounds on which he would meet his lifelong comrade, Ron Radosh, another, shall we say, flawed guide to the Communist Left. (The anecdote comes from The Black Book of the American Left, which I mention to flag another oddity, the choice of title, which conflates a highly personal collection of memoirs and reflections with the landmark academic study, The Black Book of Communism.)  

Who was this Horowitz family friend, Daily Worker editor North? Horowitz doesn't enlighten us any more than North's obit, but, luckily, Soviet intelligence defector Elizabeth Bentley did. In sworn testimony in 1950 -- two years before Horowitz became Daily Worker youth editor -- Bentley described Joseph North as "a look-out man" for Soviet intelligence; a talent-spotter or recruiter, in other words, for the NKVD. 

Of behalf of whom was he looking? Jacob Golos, "one of the most senior NKVD agents in the United States," as Herb Romerstein and Eric Breindel described him. North, we know, would put journalist Wilfred Burchett and government economist William Remington together with the NKVD  spymaster, whose rings of Kremlin agents until his death in 1943, by the way, included the famous Silvermaster group in Washington (Harry Dexter White, Alger Hiss, et al). Every two weeks. Bentley would drop by for dinner at the Silvermasters' DC home and return home to NYC with fresh microfilms of government documents stowed in her knitting bag. As noted in Senate testimony, circa 1957, Bentley bought a gift basket containing several bottle of rye for North, a token of appreciation from the NKVD.

Sure, David Horowitz likes to remind us he was born of that "vast conspiracy dedicated to the destruction of this country"; but he does tend to spare us these juiciest details, these smallest degrees of separation from the KGB itself. For an inveterate memoirist to leave out such dramatic biographical material is decidely un-Whittaker-Chamberslike; then again, maybe Horowitz is ignorant of these connections. In either case, so much for educating conservatives about the Threat Within. 

No matter. The larger point is these same (McCarthy-era) years were unforgettable years for "vast-conspiracy"-Horowitz and all the more reason the "McCarthyite" slander today makes no good sense. In 1953, for example, the year after his Daily Worker stint, the Rosenbergs, Julius and Ethel, were executed for atomic espionage. This was a cataclysm in his pre-1960s life and education, as Horowitz describes it. "It was the familiarity of the Rosenbergs that made their fate so terrible to me," he writes, noting their similarities to "everyone else we knew."

This metaphorical "familiarity" may well have had a more concrete basis.

Julius Rosenberg, Ethel Rosenberg and Ethel's sister-in-law, Ruth Greenglass -- and I think this rates a "breaking history alert" -- all went to Seward Park High School, the same New York City high school where David Horowitz's father taught English for decades.

No kidding. 

In fact, so, too, did another Communists/KGB asset active in the Rosenberg ring, Mike Sidorovich, whose wife Ann was another Rosenberg ring member. 

That makes four (4), Rosenberg ringers whom I have discovered (so far) to be alumni of Seward Park High School -- a regular Cambridge on the Lower East Side.

Who knows? Maybe some of them even had "Mr. Horowitz" for English class (Ethel, biographer Ilene Philipson tells me, did not), or some after-school club. To my knowledge, David Horowitz has not mentioned this perfectly fascinating familial proximity to nascent KGB atomic conspiracy. Neither, to my knowledge, has pal/Rosenberg ringmaster Radosh. 

Also in 1953, Sen. Joseph McCarthy was conducting what would be his final investigations into Communists and security breaches at Fort Monmouth, an Army signals intelligence installation (Julius Rosenberg worked and spied there in the early 1940s). Miracle of miracles, we find here a fifth Seward Park High and Rosenberg-connected alum, Harry Hyman, a witness who was actually questioned by McCarthy himself.

Here's a sample of the questioning

The Chairman (Sen. McCarthy): Where did you go to high school?

Mr. Hyman: Seward Park High School.

The Chairman: Were you a member of the Communist Party when you entered college?

Mr. Hyman: Under the constitutional privilege of the Fifth Amendment, I decline to answer. 

The Chairman: We are going through it again. Is it correct that when you invoke the Fifth Amendment, you are invoking it because you feel your answer might tend to incriminate you?

Mr. Hyman: That is correct.

The Chairman: Were you engaged in espionage while you were working at the Signal Corps?

Mr. Hyman: Fifth Amendment.

The Chairman: Have you engaged in espionage in the past several weeks?

Mr. Hyman: Fifth Amendment.

The Chairman: Did you steal radar secrets from the Signal Corps Laboratory and turn them over to Julius Rosenberg?

Mr. Hyman: Fifth Amendment.

Mr. Chairman: Were you acquainted with members of the Julius Rosenberg spy ring?

Mr. Hyman: Fifth Amendment.

The Chairman: Were you part of that ring?

Mr. Hyman: What was that?

The Chairman: Were you part of that ring?

Mr. Hyman: Fifth Amendment.

Hyman, by the way, is a good example of what Stan Evans called  "Fifth Amendment pleaders."

I could go on -- another time, perhaps. The point is, someone who grew up close enough to touch this "vast conspiracy" has no good reason making sure the "McCarthyite" "witch-hunt" lives on into a new century. Enough said? Probably not.




"A sterling example of penetrating counterintelligence analysis, the kind one seldom sees issuing from intelligence circles, let alone from a private researcher. Diana’s previous books mark her as one who goes far beyond the usual academic policy analysis, to penetrate to the heart of hidden history that seldom makes it to the light of day. Reading The Red Thread prompted me to recall Honoré de Balzac’s observation that there are two histories: the official one, mendacious; and the secret history, shameless, but the real cause of events. Diana West plumbs the depths of Balzac’s secret history in a way that surfaces the realities of an ideological underworld that too many deny and would rather not see exposed. Diana West is a one-person intelligence agency."

— John J. Dziak, Ph.D., former senior intelligence executive, author of Chekisty: A History of the KGB, Adjunct Professor at the Institute of World Politics, Washington, D.C.

"Once again, Diana West provides us with invaluable analysis, meticulously documented. She exposes the radical Leftist ideological roots of the Trump "lawfare” coup plotters masquerading as “respectable” Establishment law enforcement and intelligence professionals. Ms. West delivers facts, history,  documentation and context like no other. Her work in essential reading."

— Chris Farrell, Director of Investigations & Research for Judicial Watch. He is a former Military Intelligence officer and Special Agent of U.S. Army Counterintelligence. 

"An extraordinary contribution to understanding the struggle of our times. Diana West has once again done exhaustive research and unearthed a series of facts and connections which will change how you see the American left decisively. This is courageous groundbreaking work with enormous implications for understanding the depth and intensity of hostility to freedom embedded in the American left and its connections to international threats to our survival."

-- Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House, Fox News contributor, and author of numerous bestselling books.

"This fascinating new book by Diana West, a leading expert on the history of American communism, offers intriguing insights into the anti-Trump conspiracy. Ms. West teases out highly interesting, and disturbing, facts about many of the anti-Trump conspiracy players. But more importantly, she lays out a larger framework in which to view the philosophical drivers of many of the conspirators, who fall into the Marxist/globalist/collectivist political camp. This is in direct opposition to the capitalist/nationalist/individualistic political camp led by Donald Trump. Trump was anathema to these individuals because he represented an existential threat to the globalist enterprise, which has been so long in the making." 

-- William Marshall, Senior Investigator, Judicial Watch, and an intelligence analyst and investigator in the government, private, and non-profit sectors for more than 30 years.

"Once again, Diana West, as she did in American Betrayal, has scored a home run for truth. Diana's research and analysis are superb. The Red Thread provides an excellent opportunity for Americans to learn the identity of those whose agenda is not in keeping with America's patriotic ideals, and who would undermine its very existence. The Red Thread should be required reading for true patriots who serve in America's government, not to mention those who attend the nation's military academies and war college. Diana West is to be saluted for her patriotism, dedication and her passion for truth."

-- John Molloy, OSJ, Chairman, National Vietnam & Gulf War Veterans Coalition

"Diana West exposes a red thread running through the campaign to unseat President Trump. It is the story of a socialist cabal painting itself in false patriotic colors, camouflaged behind a facade of national concern. West shows that the conspirators’ true ideals are opposed to nation and Constitution. Yet it is more than a conspiracy she reveals. It is the latest iteration of the same old phenomenon of subversion, driven forward by what Whttaker Chambers called “man’s second oldest faith.”

— Jeff Nyquist, author of Origins of the Fourth World War

"Diana West's analysis of the ideological backgrounds of the DOJ and IC coup plotters against President Trump is powerful, even incontrovertible, evidence of their guilt.  Anyone who reads the Mueller Report or listens to MSNBC, etc. should also read The Red Thread as an antidote!"

-- Dr. Peter Pry, executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security. He served on the Congressional EMP Commission as chief of staff, the Congressional Strategic Posture Commission, the House Armed Services Committee, and the CIA. He is author of Blackout Wars.

"Diana West does remarkable work and must not be ignored. Her work is research driven not opinion driven---a rarity in today's world.  It is essential reading."

-- Peter Schweizer, author of Secret Empires and Clinton Cash
