As long as we cannot name something that is bothering us, we have an enormous if not insurmountable impediment to action. The capacity for titillation, for erotic stimulation even with simultaneous pain, is enhanced by suspension of belief or cognition. This is what pornography does and it is also the function of compatible journalism.



After reading numerous articles I went to Douglas Valentine's website and as I frequently do -- even today -- I asked him questions about things he had written. This began a conversation that has continued. Of course, I could not hope to conduct a serious conversation with someone about their ideas without having read what they had already committed to paper. Hence I began with The Phoenix Program (1990). I then read both of his books on the US government's drug organisations and was pleased to review them online. When Open Road Media, under the direction of Mark Crispin Miller, re-published The Phoenix Program as the first in its e-book series Forbidden Bookshelf, I had the opportunity to review it as well. In other words although I have only known Douglas Valentine for a few years, I believe I am very well acquainted not only with his writing but I also know what makes it unique in the landscape.
