Reveiw By Bill Gallagher, First Published 9-10-01
Barry And The Boys
The CIA, The Mob, and Americas Secret History
This book traces a small group of people who have existed
since before World War Two and before, whose main goal is said to be
Intelligence Gathering, although said intelligence is of such a
nature as to be totally unavailable to the taxpayers, and
sometimes, if not often, this sensitive material is classified for
decades after the death of the concerned parties, then destroyed. This type
of information represents special interests of a Very High Kind, and
took a lot of doing by the perpetrators, which means lying,
conniving, cheating, and most of all -- killing. This subculture
within America, this Spoooooky shadow government, has
become so developed that it is not far off the mark to stipulate
they actually control a large portion of the apparatus of
government. This is all spelled out plausibly and efficiently as
we follow Mr. Hopsicker through his investigation. For a long
time now things have not been right in America. Mr. Hopsicker
does a good job of showing us why.
Great care has been taken with the documentation that has been
laid down in this 518 page book (Over 50 of the pages at the
back are heretofore unpublished documents tying events
together) and I am sure Daniel Hopsicker would agree that
much of his work entailed chasing papers, a many times
thankless and uninspiring activity at best, which can even turn
dangerous on occasion. Mr. Hopsicker plowed through the
pitfalls and misleads like a bull, while wisely making use of
expert help along the way. He worked hard at gleaning facts,
and where conclusion is not possible he says so. This is a
necessary attribute in a researcher, because as a rule, nothing
ever fits together perfectly in the real world, and if it all comes
together too perfectly on paper, it is usually a fabrication. Barry
And The Boys is nothing like fabrication, it is a chronology of
events with the paperwork to back it up. Consider also that Great
expenditure of taxpayer dollars has gone into the governments
secrecy machine, to keep things secret, and it can then be
understood what a formidable task it has become to pursue the
truth in this country. Without people like Mr. Hopsicker and those
whose references he cites, we would be well into a form of
Naziism unimagined even in Hitlers time. They have had time to
refine, you see?
The book itself is fun to read, which is about the best thing I can
ever say about any book. If its fun to read, thats the best it can
be. Hopsicker has a sometimes biting humor, and one should
expect this from a person who goes delving after truth. There is
a quote of Lilly Tomlins in the book, a poignant reminder of what
truth seeking can lead to: "I get more cynical by the day, but I
never seem to catch up", or something along those lines.
Certain catch phrases appear at just the right time throughout
the book also, barbs perhaps, bringing particular points home
full circle in many different instances. There were goosebumps
on occassion. For Real. And never before have I read a more
apt description of the American Viewing Public than in "Barry And
The Boys", where Mr. Hopsicker refers to the poor deluded
sheople of this nation, mesmerized by geegaws and flash, as
"The chumps in the cheap seats". Thanks Daniel. Thats the
type of thing that really gets around, and thats not bad at all.
Truth is Good.
This book is valuable historic record, at a time when history has
become mired in secrecy, advertising, public relations
campaigns, and straight out propoganda. It is interesting
beyond belief, Barry And The Boys, and stays well away from
theories, dealing only in evidentiary conclusions. That, my
friends, is enough by far, when poring over the evidence
concerning this social phenomenon here in America today,
something social scientists label the "Elite Deviant Class". This
book is about the people in this grouping within our society, this
class of deviants, who believe the law is only for the little people,
and can be modified at their whim, or broken at will. Its about
your government, and how they really are, how things really are,
unembellished and properly presented. It is by no means pretty,
but it doesn't have to be pretty to be the truth.
Two words describe Daniel Hopsickers book "Barry And The
Boys -- The CIA, The Mob, And Americas Secret History", and
those two words are Valuable, and Important. In my opinion the
book should be in every library in America, from the high schools
