should make a good TV movie, maybe starring Dwayne Johnson
This is a most fascinating book, but the reader must be warned that it can be somewhat tedious and banal as it covers a real-life FBI investigation which, when undertaken professionally, as Mr. Navarro was that most uncommon sort within the FBI, they tend to be that way.
To the typical reader, this book may serve to illustrate how inept and incompetent the FBI senior management was in the 1980s, but so does the after-action congressional investigation demonstrate the same exact thing after 9/11/01. This book, and investigation, clearly illustrates something many of us have long known - - one individual is usually responsible for the mission, or job, or miracle, getting done! Clearly, Mr. Navarro was that man.
To someone like myself, who was familiar with the military opsec procedures and protocols in the most massive security breach ever to date, it demonstrates once again to this humble reader what a shambles the volunteer military is [or was????] in comparison to the military during the draft, when citizen-soldiers really existed!?
Thankfully, this colossal breach took place at the same time as the Soviet Union was dissolving, otherwise . . .
Recalling a retired general promoting his book on the Democracy Now! show several years back, and recounting [bragging] about training both the Afghanistani army and the Iraqi army, I suspect it is still a shambles. Just cannot get over what Mr. Navarro recounted in his excellent book. [Should you hear some of us old farts sound off about things being better, or tighter, or more progressive, or more advanced, in the old days - - trust me, we really aren't progressing today!]
