About Jeff Stein


SpyTalk columnist Jeff Stein is a longtime investigative reporter specializing in U.S. intelligence, defense and foreign policy issues. An Army Intelligence case officer in Vietnam, Stein has authored three highly regarded books and has been a frequent contributor to periodicals ranging from Esquire,Vanity Fair, GQ and Playboy to The New Republic, The Nation and The Christian Science Monitor. He also appears frequently on television and radio as an analyst on national security issues. In the 1980s, he was deputy foreign editor at UPI.

TIME called his 1992 book, "A Murder in Wartime," "The best military morality tale since 'The Caine Mutiny' ... an exhaustively researched and heavily documented history of the Green Beret murder case." In 2000 Gen. William E. Odom, a former chief of the National Security Agency, writing in The Washington Post, called "Saddam's Bombmaker" (written with Khidhir Hamza), "Not only stranger but frequently bloodier than fiction. The book should attract a wide range of readers, from foreign policy and security specialists to bored airplane passengers looking for a thriller."

Until late 2009 Stein worked at Congressional Quarterly, where he launched the online CQ/Homeland Security daily, served as National Security editor and created SpyTalk.

USA Is Full of DPY Fanasy. Al Quayeda is Left Foot Sticking Out of head of Freanch Repubilics' Foreign legion. Kind of Devils Island.

People In Forgein Countries Know Score, Much More than Aggressive Death Wisher in Us Realizes, As Perpetrate harm on ?Neighbors. Kiddies Are Casing for Bomb, that Any Deception Takes, If Don't Increase Cost of Consulars' Interogation. Cure by More than Fear, Developed to Entertainment level of Safety, Captives NO better Off than Animals In Arbituar. Often Those people have Citizen relatives, Whom Don't accept Deception. If US Central Intelligence Agency has learned Anything Important Hard to Know, As NOBODY reads final Submissions to US Congress. No Action on hard Work.

Scare tactics for Money that Work Gret Here in US, Inspite of Being contray to ALL Stutory US Law. Same Method Is Very Old. Basicly Catholics Seeking Anothers Pile of Gold, Taken By Any Excuse
