One Response to Robert Parry, Lost History: Contras, Cocaine, The Press & Project Truth, 1999.

  1. Ron Boothe says:

    Robert Parry comes across as a heroic figure for our times, perhaps something akin to Martin Luther posting his 95 theses on the door of the church of All Saints on 31 October 1517. Martin Luther was simply a single theologian whose power and influence were minuscule compared to the establishment of his time (The Roman Catholic Church). However, he was witness to a corruption within that establishment and decided to make a stand and tell the truth as he saw it, irregardless of how impractical it might seem that one person standing up for the truth could make any difference. Similarly, Robert Parry makes his stand with this book, exposing immense corruption and lies within the political establishment of our government. He is simply a single journalist whose power and influence are minuscule compared to that of the political establishment. Nevertheless, he makes his stand, and tells the truth. I honor and respect him for that. I thank Stirling for bringing this book to our attention. It made for a great discussion at our November meeting.
