For anyone else who doesn't know the Laurel Canyon series has been quite the eye opener for all the weird goings on there, from CIA movie studios, connections to cults, Charles Manson, the military industrial complex, and more.(both Meria and Dave are linked at the side)
Did you catch the stuff on Jack Nicholson? bizarre.
And nobody he gave us a teaser and I am going to post it for you here:
the focus of the book being on one, Albert Wohlstetter
Abella focuses on Albert Wohlstetter, a mathematical logician turned nuclear strategist who was the dominant figure at RAND starting in the early 1950s and whose influence has extended beyond his death in 1997 into the current Bush administration.
Ultimately, however, it was not so much Wohlstetter himself as his acolytes -- those bright, eager and ambitious young men who had sat cross-legged on the floor with their mentor at his stylish house in Laurel Canyon, or later in his classroom at the University of Chicago -- who had a major impact in Washington. Their number included Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz and Zalmay Khalilzad, who became three of the brightest stars in the neo-conservative constellation and played a significant role in advocating the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Another was Andrew W. Marshall, formerly a RAND economist, who, as promoter of the high-tech "Revolution in Military Affairs" in Donald Rumsfeld's Defense Department, was dubbed the Pentagon's "Yoda."where he is going with this bit of information, I don't know, but it is curious?
