The Secret Team, L. Fletcher Prouty's CIA exposÃ©, was first published in the 1970s, but virtually all copies of the book disappeared upon distribution, purchased en masse by shady ""private buyers."" Certainly Prouty's amazing allegations-that the U-2 Crisis of 1960 was fixed to sabotage Eisenhower-Khrushchev talks, and that President Kennedy was assassinated to keep the U.S., and its defense budget, in Vietnam-cannot have pleased the CIA. Though suppressed (until now), The Secret Team was an important influence for Oliver Stone's Academy Award-winning film JFK and countless other works on U.S. government conspiracies, and it raises the same crucial question today that it did on its first appearance: who, in fact, is in control of the United States and the world?
