Now, I do not intend to slight Ignatius, who appears to receive some type of bonus everytime he mentions the phrase /// conspiracy theory \\\ whenever he's doing an interview, writes silly stuff. As far as the Library Journal critic's question: /// What does the fusty Bank of International Settlements have in common with the shadowy CIA \\\ one need only know that the powerful CIA director, Richard Helms - - who gave us MK ULTRA - - had a grandfather who was the first president of the BIS. [Also, the Helms family owned Newsweek magazine for quite a few years.] Publisher Weekly's critic says: /// suffering in "the post-Snowden era" of whistle-blowers and cyberterrorism\\\ yet we know there will never be a post-Snowden era as long as the full privatization of the US intelligence establishment continues.

Ignatius - I guess the book was due so he threw some letters against the wall and this is what came out. There is a story to be told of the impact of what Snowden did. This just isn't it.

I didn't know where the story was going and I like books that keep me guessing. It was terrific summer read.
