Alhough I've become quite sceptical about some of Ruppert's more recent actions (I think he was got at by the 'attack poodles'), it was his book 'Crossing the Rubicon' (2004) which first opened my eyes to the real geopolitical agenda, and it remains true that he was incredibly brave going back to the 1970's, trying to expose the CIA and the international drugs trade - which continues to this day - and how! HSBC being one of the major banks which launders drugs money and makes a lot of people very rich, whilst funding the shadow economy. Perhaps people are ready to listen now?
NB: He has recently left his website (Collapsenet.com) and gone to live in the countryside to grow vegetables. Why now?
