Summary

There's the Freedom of Information Act, and then there's Ventura's way. The official spin on numerous government programs is flat-out bull, according to Jesse Ventura. In this incredible collection of actual government documents, Ventura, the ultimate nonpartisan truth-seeker, proves it beyond any doubt. He and Dick Russell walk listeners through 63 of the most incriminating programs to reveal what really happens behind the closed doors. In addition to providing original government data, Ventura discusses what it really means and how regular Americans can stop criminal behavior at the top levels of government and in the media. Among the cases discussed:


The CIA's top-secret program to control human behavior
Operation Northwoods: the military plan to hijack airplanes and blame it on Cuban terrorists
The discovery of a secret Afghan archive, information that never left the boardroom
Potentially deadly healthcare cover-ups, including a dengue fever outbreak
What the Department of Defense knows about our food supply but is keeping mum Although these documents are now in the public domain, the powers that be would just as soon they stay under wraps. Ventura's research and commentary sheds new light on what they're not telling you---and why it matters.

Truth Hurts

As always Jesse Ventura does a great job of documenting everything he writes about.
Hard to listen too only because I love my country and it saddens me to learn of the evil that is done by its political arm. Gives good cause to "watch" the government and question everything it does. Also gives you the sense that if you don't vote you aint got a bitch!

A Very Difficult Process

As revealing as this book may be, getting to do something about what Jesse Ventura suggests needs to be done in this country for greater transparency is perhaps not as difficult as listening to this audio. I have over twenty years of listening to books on tape and this is, by far, is the most excrutingly painful one to listen to. Each document is read, with all the boring bureaucratic language, and almost with every comma and period, in a boring tone of voice; it was so painful to listen to that I couldn't finish it; I would rather sit at the dentist's chair and get a root canal done, at least I would know it would done quicker.
