This book is clearly aimed at undermining the credibility of Vietnam era war correspondents like Seymour Hersh by portraying them as agents of the KGB Narratives like this are in effect propaganda and offensive Robert Moss was a CIA operative and represented insidious extreme right wing fascism Nowadays we can find this author has morphed himself into a self styled shaman giving dream workshops based on highly appropriated ideas from native cultures of which he had no real experience of His followers of his dream work courses and novels should approach what he has on offer with serious skepticism and caution He is not open about his past history This particular novel as propaganda to justify US warmongering and the Vietnam war is just the tip of the iceberg
