The War Conspiracy

The Mary Ferrell Foundation is publishing a major update of Peter Dale Scott's classic The War Conspiracy. Available for pre-order now at the MFF Store, this book will be shipping on August 5.

The original 1972 book detailed the subterfuge by which the Indochina war was escalated, through a series of seemingly accidental bombings, aggressive operations in the field, suspicious intelligence failures and the like.

Fully updated for 2008 throughout, this new edition, subtitled JFK, 9/11, and the Deep Politics of War, features two lengthy additional chapters. The first is The Kennedy Assassination and the Vietnam War, an essay written in 1971 about the false "continuity" in Vietnam policy after JFK's assassination. The second, JFK, 9/11 and War: Recurring Patterns in America's Deep Events, is a brand-new essay which examines the many parallels between the 1963 assassination and the attacks of September 11, 2001.

A resource page for The War Conspiracy features information about the book, along with links to online essays and interviews.
