New York Times Bestseller! Let Governor Jesse Ventura take you through the paperwork that the US government tried to keep secret from the world—JFK and Vietnam, chemical and biological warfare, Gulf War illness, warnings about 9/11, and more!
The official spin on numerous government programs is flat-out bullsh*t, according to Jesse Ventura. In this incredible collection of actual government documents, Jesse Ventura, the ultimate non-partisan truth-seeker, proves it beyond any doubt. He and Dick Russell walk readers through sixty-three of the most incriminating programs to reveal what really happens behind the closed doors. Witness as he breaks open the vault, revealing the truth:
The CIA’s top-secret program to control human behavior
Operation Northwoods—the military plan to hijack airplanes and blame it on Cuban terrorists
Potentially deadly healthcare cover-ups, including a dengue fever outbreak
What the Department of Defense knows about our food supply—but is keeping mum
Homeland Security’s “emergency” detention camps
Fake terrorist attacks planned by the United States
Although these documents are now in the public domain, the powers that be would just as soon they stay under wraps. Ventura’s research and commentary sheds new light on what they’re not telling you—and why it matters.
