How to Cover-Up a Major Treasonous Covert Operation That Everyone in Government Knows About
Rodney Stich in "Defrauding America, 2nd Edition" devotes a chapter to the October Surprise and the cover-up.
The basic ingredients of the cover-up are:
1) CIA infiltration throughout the government and overall control
2) a controlled, conflicted, corrupt Congress
3) a controlled, conflicted, corrupt Executive branch
4) a controlled and corrupt Judiciary
5) a controlled, conflicted, corrupt, compliant media
The rest flows rather easily.
The lesson for 9/11 should be obvious.
