So, I am currently reading “Chain of Command” by Casper Weingberger and Peter Schweizer. It came out in 2005. I won’t say anything about the story line. Read it yourself.
What scares the bejeuz out of me is the fact that this work of FICTION… I can see happening in today’s world all too easily. Replace the fictional characters with, oh say, Pence and Bannon…. yeah. Scary shit.
Maybe it’s the writing that makes it so believable. Weinberger was Secretary of Defense under Reagan. Schweizer is a Political Consultant as well as a top novelist. Both had the background to “keep it real” so to speak.
