Critical reviews through long island instances bestselling writer Jim Hougan
“John Meier’s tale is absolutely attention-grabbing and, i think, very important. I’ve spent a few years learning the yank cryptocracy and there's no query in my brain that Meier is dead-right whilst he says that the CIA used to be working the Hughes empire. So, too, with Intertel. i used to be the 1st journalist to put in writing in regards to the company (in Harper’s), and it’s obvious to me, because it is to Meier, that its marketing strategy was once drawn up in Langley.
That acknowledged, this can be complex stuff. the way in which I see it, American politics from 1954-74 is a continuum outlined through the fight among the Richard Nixon apparat and the Kennedy computing device, with the Howard Hughes empire serving as a fulcrum in what amounted to a mystery struggle for the country’s soul. CIA spooks, mobsters on 3 coasts and a coven of Texas oligarchs equipped the “magic box”.
John Meier’s tale is a fungible one within the feel that it could possibly function the foundation for a rock-’em-sock-’em television sequence, movie or documentary concerning the Deep kingdom. by means of that, I suggest the cryptocracy that has advanced because the chilly battle alongside a political continuum outlined through assassination, surveillance and cover-up.
The Howard Hughes association, with its ties to Texas oil, Las Vegas playing, Hollywood and the CIA was once the key fulcrum of that continuum, mediating a political fight that, via turns, observed the Kennedy’s devastated by means of homicide and the Nixon camp destroyed by way of what seems to be, more and more, like a gentle coup d’etat. during this, John Meier was once a Zelig-like determine, straight away a witness and a player, so well-connected - and so deeply concerned - that it may in simple terms have resulted in exile or a grave.
The point of interest of that story, from which every thing else proceeds, is clearly the key struggle for the Hughes empire.
If it have been a movie, it'd be as intriguing because the Bourne identification, and that i imagine it is going to pull within the similar viewers (and for plenty of of a similar purposes) that either The Bourne id and JFK did.”
