You’re in the book is kind of like the movie Titanic. We all know the ship’s going down, but I found myself waiting for the moment. They hit the iceberg which will be Dallas in this case. And the overwhelming, you know, all the backs like the postwar stuff. I mean the war stuff is a whole nother. That should be a book by itself I think I’m sure people have talked about but that’s just phenomenal. That immediate post war stuff and then all that connections and it’s just like you start seesaw and you’re like, oh, I see it and I see it and I see it. And then next thing I know I’m, I’m in November of 63. And I went, Oh wow, here I am. And it all just, you know, everything kind of fits back together. It’s phenomenal. That’s phenomenal. Yeah, go ahead. I’m sorry.
I do, I do. I do appreciate that. I really do. And I would like to stay just at the back of the stories that I tell early on in the book to understand the background are critical for understanding what happened in Dallas in this business, develop the relationship to business development, uh, between score Zenia and individuals in the book. And I had to explain how the United States in the Cold War was, was, um, using covert assets in the development of, of cover organizations and cover businesses for, for the implementation of clandestine activity a is you just can’t jump to the end user. It has to be explained and also scores Andy’s role with other countries, for example, that I had to explain of particularly the French and the, and the entire Algerian war must be understood as to understand why the scores any network is significant. Now, here’s this, here’s the deal about this network. I keep saying the score zany network. There is a, uh, a definitive network that’s identified in this, in these papers, and you can follow the history of it by studying the papers through time,
[14:08] but it’s pretty consistent group. And it just so happens that the people that are involved with score zany in the scores and papers are very high level, executive level, presidential level. We’re talking to the highest level of the United States government. These are, these are very powerful individuals who are intimately involved and covert Cold War, um, assignments and activity. And I’ll give you an example. A man named Perkins Mcguire, who’s one of a scores. Amy’s key components in the, in the papers. And Mcguire was an assistant secretary of defense under Eisenhower. And, uh, for, uh, his role was in logistics. It was the assistant secretary of defense for logistics, but he was no for two under the secretary of defense and he was in charge of all covert, uh, materials and uh, uh, activities related to the, uh, cover operations that the United States to use to carry out clandestine activity.
[15:12] And he’s in the papers. And, um, when Eisenhower left office, in fact, in 1963 at the time of the assassination, perkins mcguire was a CIA contract off. Now, this is not evidenced in the basics. This is evidenced by declassified documents that I use in a comparative study, so Perkins Mcguire, mcguire, a former secretary, assistant secretary of defense, and a CIA high level CIA contract off, who by the way ran the CIA proprietary air, uh, uh, services to include southern air. Trans is in the papers. So this is, this shows the magnitude of the connections that, that scores any had clandestinely, and this is not an open relationship, you’re not going to find scores and nice connection to perkins mcguire anywhere except in these papers. But the knowledge of that now that I exposed it changes everything. Perkins Mcguire was an intimate friend of Richard Nixon who was the staff officer in charge, who is the action officer Ashton state under President Eisenhower for some of our, some of the greatest covert action that we were taking, particularly against Cuba.
