A book as topical as today's headline (of The Guardian and The Independent, that is, little of substance appears in American news and newspapers, excepting the occasional McClatchy publications). With private intel and cybersecurity firms reaping in the billions in g-contracts, and those cybersecurity firms the new arms dealers of the 21st century, this book cannot be more timely. Written by the esteemed member of the real lawyers-for-the-people, the National Lawyers Guild (formed by those attorneys kicked out of the ACLU for having too progressive of views, and forever a blight on the ACLU for their cowardly actions!), Ms. Boghosian tells it like it is - - no groveling "speaking truth to power" for this outstanding American! [FYI: Keep your eye on that little known cybersecurity/cyberwarfare firm, Endgame Systems.]
