Barry And The Boys: The CIA, The Mob, and Americas Secret History

by bg Thursday, Sep. 28, 2006 at 6:38 PM

Reveiw By Bill Gallagher, First Published 9-10-01



Barry And The Boys

The CIA, The Mob, and Americas Secret History

Daniel Hopsicker

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back are heretofore unpublished documents tying events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

up.
