Kevin Shipp, former CIA Officer and Anti Terrorism expert, held several high level positions in the CIA. He was assigned as a protective agent for the Director of Central Intelligence, a counterintelligence investigator, team leader protecting sensitive CIA assets from assassination, manager of high risk Counter Terrorism Center protective operations, lead instructor for members of allied governments, internal staff security investigator and a polygraph examiner tasked with protecting the CIA from foreign agent penetration. He is the recipient of two CIA Meritorious Unit Citations, three Exceptional Performance Awards and a Medallion for overseas covert operations.
Shipp also supervised the Department of State Anti Terrorism Assistance program and managed the protective detail assigned to the president of Afghanistan following the US invasion.
Born in Laramie, Wyoming, he and his family moved to Falls Church, Virginia where he spent most of his life. He put himself through college using college loans, working during summers and hitchhiking to and from Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia, where he earned a Bachelor's degree in Biology. Later, he earned a Master's level degree in forensic psycho physiology and the detection of deception from the Department of Defense Academy for Credibility Assessment.
From the Company of Shadows is a fascinating revelation of the procedures the CIA uses in conducting covert operations, counterintelligence investigations and counter
terrorism. This is a detailed expose’ covering multiple facets of CIA intelligence and secrecy.
How did this book make it by the censors?
Kevin Shipp provides a detailed expose’ of the CIA’s use of secrecy and the executive branch’s abuse of the little known State Secrets Privilege.
“From 1953 to the present the federal government, and most notoriously the CIA, has used the assertion of the State Secrets Privilege to block cases of negligence, discrimination, shut down whistleblower claims, prevent other branches of government from conducting investigations…"
Shipp provides a stunning example of the CIA’s concealment of negligence by including excerpts from his book on the subject, blacked out by CIA censors. He spent months going back and forth, line by line, word by word, negotiating with the CIA for the book’s release.
Shipp courageously exposes the current stealth jihad movement operating in the US and lays out the techniques terrorist organizations use to carry out their attacks.
Important Note: Xs and ?s in the text are words blacked out by the CIA.
Most noted investigative work is a book by Paul Palango "Dispersing the Fog: Inside the Secret World of Ottawa and the
RCMP" the author of the best selling books: "Above the Law" and "The last Guardians". In Dispersing the Fog, Paul Palango provides
answers to questions that have long simmered in the consciousness of Canadians. Why was Ottawa so anxious to settle in the Maher Arar case? Why did governments cover up the truth in Project
Sidewinder, a joint RCMP-CSIS investigation?
Palango builds on the powerful and influential arguments made in his first two RCMP books, Above the Law and The Last Guardians, to show Canadians why they should be concerned about the RCMP, its mandate, its performance and its relationship to governments and politics.
No other author knows the subject matter better than Palango. Dispersing the Fog is not just a book about the RCMP, but a story about the political and justice systems in general and a wake-up call for any Canadian concerned about the security and integrity of the country.
In our post-9/11 world,
Dispersing the Fog addresses the role played by RCMP leaders, politicians and the media, who have all collectively failed to recognize and address the very real and articulate
concerns of Canadians from coast to coast who have long questioned the ability or willingness of the RCMP to carry out its duties.
No one who cares about democracy and the health of ones country`s guardian institutions can afford to ignore this book.
