The book gives up-to-date, factual, solidly-sourced stories of several important recent and a few of the earliest events of American history. And it points out the false narratives, as it sweeps them away. Here are some of the highlights:. A nice feature of the book is that many of its notes have web links to original documents and recordings. And here is a link where you can hear the phone call noted above, where Nixon lies to Johnson about sabotaging the Vietnam peace talks.

He has followed up on these and other such stories, digging up and keeping up on new evidence along the way. It is not a long book — pages not counting the index and notes — but it is a meaty book. Virtually every word in it advances the stories told. These stories show that some conspiracies really are true.

E-mail me your U. In this book Parry concentrates on events that he has personally analysed in depth. They are the and elections, the Iran-Contra affair and related scandals. Colin Powell and Robert Gates are greatly admired by many Americans but Parry reveals the dark side of their careers. The false narratives of their conduct hide the fact that in the course of their professional lives innocent people got killed.
Many other leaders come out of Parry's analyses looking like truly horrible human beings.
America's Stolen Narrative: From Washington and Madison to Nixon, Reagan and the Bushes to Obama
Nixon wanted to stop a deal that might have helped Johnson to win the election. As a consequence, at least a million more lives were lost in Indochina.
Later, under Reagan and George H. Bush's watch, an illegal arms-for-hostage swap was secretly put into operation. These dishonest operations have rarely been properly investigated and revealed by the mainstream media. Scandals, lies and moral corruption feature in the careers of so many US leaders. And through all the years of governments' false narratives the US mainstream media has sung to the tune of corrupt elites instead of investigating what has gone horribly wrong in American social, political and economic life.
The inability or unwillingness of the media to look into the premises of US foreign policy is well analysed by Parry. The dead were usually the people of some unfortunate country that attracted Washington 's displeasure or the US soldiers put in harm's way enforcing Washington 's wishes.
The rest of the story by Robert Parry
Since the s an ideologically extreme crowd of intellectuals has made their way into the corridors of power. An illuminating case study is the career of Robert Gates. Bush, he got the job as head of the CIA in Gates immediately frustrated the congressional investigation into Bush's treasonous behaviour during the scandal.
There was nothing Gates wouldn't do to toe the neocon-line and further his own lies-ridden career.

During a Senate committee hearing on his nomination, Gates had to defend himself against accusations that he had deliberately distorted intelligence information about the Soviet Union he'd presented to the Reagan Administration. Not being able to predict the fall of the Soviet Union should have destroyed Gates's credibility.
But no, the people who lost their jobs were the real experts on the Soviet Union.

Practically all senior analysts on Soviet foreign policy left. Gates also torpedoed any possibility of a peaceful outcome in Afghanistan after the Russians left. Gates went out of his way to emphasise the need of aggressive US military interventions everywhere in the world. Later Gates served as George W. Bush's Defense Secretary. Some commentators were alarmed to realise that Barack Obama was going to retain Gates in this job. Robert Parry's career speaks mountains of the reality of Washington 's political and media life.
