A shocking expose of the CIA's role as drug baron. On March 18, 1998, the CIA's Inspector General, Fred Hitz, told astounded US Reps that the CIA had maintained relationships with companies and individuals that the Agency knew to be involved in the drug business. More shocking was the revelation that the CIA had received from Reagan's Justice Department clearance not to report any knowledge it might have of drug-dealing by CIA assets. Many years' worth of CIA denials, much of it under oath to Congress, were sunk. Hitz's admissions made fools of some of the most prominent names in US journalism and vindicated others that had been ruined. Particularly resonant was the case of the San Jose Mercury News, which published a sensational series on CIA involvement in the smuggling of cocaine into black urban neighborhoods, and then under pressure conspired in the destruction of its own reporter, Gary Webb. In Whiteout, Alexander Cockburn and Jeffrey St. Clair finally put the whole story together, from the earliest days, when the CIA's institutional ancestors cut a deal with America's premier gangster and drug trafficker, Lucky Luciano. This is a thrilling history that stretches from Sicily in 1944 to the killing fields of Laos and Vietnam, to CIA safe houses in Greenwich Village and San Francisco where CIA men watched Agency-paid prostitutes feed LSD to unsuspecting clients. We meet Oliver North, as he plotted with Manuel Noriega and Central American gangsters. We travel to little-known airports in Costa Rica and Arkansas. We hear from drug pilots and accountants from the Cali Cartel. We learn of DEA agents whose careers were ruined because they tried to tell the truth. Cockburn and St. Clair show how the CIA's complicity with drug-dealing criminal gangs was part and parcel of its attacks on labor organizers, whether on the docks of New York, Marseilles, or Shanghai. They trace how the Cold War and counter-insurgency led to an alliance between the Agency and the vilest of war criminals like Klaus Barbie, or fanatic opium traders like the mujahedin in Afghanistan. Cockburn and St. Clair horrifyingly affirm charges of outraged black communities that the CIA had undertaken enduring programs of experiments on minorities. They show that the CIA imported Nazi scientists straight from their labs at Dachau and Buchenwald and set to work, developing chemical and biological agents, tested on blacks, some of them in mental hospitals. Cockburn and St. Clair dissect the shameful way American journalists have not only turned a blind eye to the Agency's misdeeds, but also helped plunge the knife into those who tried to tell the truth. Fact-packed and fast-paced, Whiteout is a richly detailed excavation of the CIA's dirtiest secrets. For anyone who wants to know the real truth about the Agency, this is the book to start with.

Filled with startling twists, Whiteout is the ultimate knife-edge drama from Ken Follett – an international bestselling author who is in a class of his own. A Family Reunited As a blizzard descends from the north on Christmas Eve, several people converge on a remote family estate in Scotland. Stanley Oxenford, director of a pharmaceutical research company, has everything riding on a drug he is developing to fight a lethal virus. A Brewing Storm Several others are interested in his success too: his children, at home for Christmas with their offspring, have their eyes on the money he will make; Toni Gallo, forced to resign from the police department in disgrace, is betting her career on keeping the drug safe; and a local television reporter, determined to move up, has sniffed the story, even if he has to bend the facts to tell it. A House Under Siege A sinister gang spots an opportunity to use one of Stanley’s children against him and steal the virus. As everyone takes shelter, it becomes apparent that being inside the house may be more dangerous than the storm outside, especially when a lethal virus might be on the loose . . .

White·out: n. a surface condition . . . in which no object casts a shadow, the horizon cannot be seen, and only dark objects are discernible . . . Whiteout: when the heavy weather of daily life establishes the measure of the measureless; when the predatory nature of the accidental conjures cowboys and the comatose; when the sickly sweet pop of life underfoot contrasts the televised image, shrinking to a pinprick. Whiteout: calques and towers, twin polar storms, falling, burning. Whiteout: “a book of white nothing.” George Murray’s sixth collection has been a decade in the making. At once taut, tender and terrifying, haunted and haunting, Whiteout shatters convention in the collision of order and rage, formlessness and hard-won serenity.

The book is about the experience of a black man in America who was born into a sharecropper family. It’s about his experiences and observations of the ’40s, ’50s, ’60s, and, now, 2015. It’s about how much America has changed but still remains the same. It’s about racism and white supremacy, from the White House to the outhouse. It’s about the 99 percent in the outhouse versus the 1 percent in the White House. This book is about the white supremacy of all colors and nationalities. This book is to serve as a reminder to all of us that white supremacy cannot endure without all of us participating. We have got to change. We have got to free ourselves from the greed of capitalism. Remember, you can’t spend your dollars with the people who control this white supremacist regime and not bear any of the responsibility.

It's the week of the first winter break in Sarah's college year and she and her cousin, Meagan, are in North Dakota with Brad and Ali visiting Brad's cousin, Holly. They will attend a formal celebration with her fiancé, Ryan on Friday night, but before that the teens will have several days to spend outdoors enjoying winter sports. They set out on the first morning for a venture of cross-country skiing. The day is sunny with clear skies and it gives Sarah a bit of peace from the haunting dream that she had the night before where she was trapped in a horrifying snow storm and buried alive. The day starts out with fun and laughter but it soon turns into a nightmare when Holly's father doesn't arrive at the destination point to pick them up and the weather takes a sudden change and brings on a deadly snow storm. Her dad's distress call from his friend's house suggests he's been in an accident but when they struggle through the storm and arrive at Jake's house they realize that her father is in far more danger than they imagined. Now they must fight the winter storm on foot in an unfamiliar territory to find Holly's father. The teens endure severe hardship and Sarah must continue the search regardless of her own injuries and her fears because their quest is now one of rescue and survival in a fast-paced race against time.
