The Secret Team - L. Fletcher Prouty

The Secret Team

By L. Fletcher Prouty

  • Release Date: 2011-04-01
  • Genre: Political Science


With a new foreword by Jesse Ventura: A government insider’s shocking exposé of crimes committed by America’s intelligence agencies during the Cold War.
L. Fletcher Prouty—decorated Air Force officer, former chief of special operations for the Joint Chiefs of Staff under President John F. Kennedy, and the inspiration for “Mr. X” in Oliver Stone’s Academy Award-winning film JFK—first published The Secret Team in the 1970s. But virtually all copies of the book disappeared upon distribution, purchased en masse by shady private buyers.
Certainly Prouty’s amazing allegations—that the U-2 Crisis of 1960 was fixed to sabotage Eisenhower-Khrushchev talks, and that President Kennedy was assassinated to keep the United States, and its defense budget, in Vietnam—cannot have pleased the CIA. Though suppressed (until now), The Secret Team was an important influence for countless works on US government conspiracies, and it raises the same crucial question today that it did on its first appearance: who, in fact, is in control of the United States and the world?
