After my 1 hour segment investigate reporter JP Sotille of newsvandal.com spoke about the current Donald Trump Jr. email reveals and whether they are going to lead to anything or not. He spoke about the three card monte setup now starting to play out on us from Washington DC.

Notes I made for my segment:

Over the past few years a question I have asked myself is HOW does the national security state function.

Looking at details is the only way to answer that.

This talk will focus on a new book released about OSS/SSU operations in 1946 - a year left empty in accounts of the US intelligence community until this book:

Spying Through a Glass Darkly: American Espionage against the Soviet Union, 1945-1946 .

This was a transition year as WWII ended and Cold War began in which operations were being paired back and missions changed.

We'll also look at a secret group called "The Pond" - Special Services Branch - created by the head of army intilligence Major General George Strong under the direction of US Army Captain William Grombach. It operated in some areas unknown to anyone in the OSS/SSU under their noses.

The CIA historical room put out on article on this group and how James Angleton destroyed it in 1955's with an intel operation of his own:

The Pond: Running Agents for State, War, and the CIA - The Hazards of Private Spy Operations
