Finally started reading Annie Jacobsen, Area 51. An Uncensored History of America’s Top Secret Military Base, published in 2011. Her next book, scheduled for spring 2014, will be about Operation Paperclip. Very excited about this!
Here’s a little sample from the foreword to Area 51: „In 1994, for instance, when President Clinton created by executive order the Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments to look into secrets kept by the Atomic Energy Commission , certain records involving certain programs inside and around Area 51 were kept from the president on the grounds that he did not have a need-to-kn ow. Two of these programs, still classified , are revealed publicly for the first time in this book.“
And finally reading Huxley’s “Brave New World”. Hopefully an essay will emerge at some point describing how much of what he and Orwell feared has sadly come true in the meantime.
