  1. “If they had known, taxpayers might also object to the CIA’s numerous overthrows of foreign governments by force and violence…”

    I think the authors gives much too much moral credit to the “American taxpayers”.

    Neither the KKK nor the CIA came from outer space. Homegrown ‘good ol’boys’…I’ve known legions of these goons.

    Many “government jobs” are analogous to the Ring of Gyges in one degree or another–just a BADGE is all it takes at times.

    Amerikans are some of the biggist pricks–right out in the open, no costumes, no invisiblity—I have ever met.

    This “Shining City on the Hill” myth is bullshit.

  3. The KKK was no great shakes until about just before the American participation in the First World War was to happen, then they got some help from a very (un)orthodox source – Hollywood.

    Oddly enough, a sex scandal sent their numbers reeeling in the mid Twenties just as a man with a pushbroom mustache was selling his dream for Germany to a group of people who’d come to power as the National Socialist Party by 1930.
