Barry M. Lando, former 60 Minute Producer, author of "Web of Deceit, the history of foreign intervention in Iraq from Churchill to Kennedy to George W. Bush", and two novels, "The Watchman's File," and "Deep Strike", a tale of Russian Hackers, rogue CIA agents and an American President.
Here you will find links to Lando's books, his blogs on current affairs, as well as a documentary he produced on the West's complicity with Saddam Hussein.
Watching CNN’s “Inside Africa” this morning, as they cut away from normal programming about Africa to bring us live coverage of a fatal railroad accident—two dead and at least 70 injured after a major passenger train collided with a freight train.
Donald Trump’s obscene attacks against immigrants from certain benighted parts of the globe prompted me to reread some of the research I did a few years back about the origins of my own grandparents.
A deranged American president wins election with the aid of Russian hacking. Over the following months, he becomes increasingly brutish. His wild, rabid Tweets and tempestuous acts dismay even his closest supporters. He flirts with nuclear disaster. America’s basic democratic foundations are challenged. Yet Congressional leaders refuse to act. Difficult to believe this is real life.
Some top Russian generals were outraged by the decision to hack the U.S. elections. Their anger against the Russian president may ultimately have huge consequences. That's the situation in my novel, "Deep Strike", about Russian hacking, rogue CIA agents, and a new, deranged American president.
The president is Walter Stokes, elected despite serious charges of Russian hacking. He’s the villain of my new novel“Deep Strike”.

There are some Futurists who argue that we humans are headed for oblivion, to be replaced by a new species—a product of the current mind-boggling developments in Artificial Intelligence, robotics and machine learning. There’s no better proof for that claim than the presidential campaign just staggering to its farcical conclusion, in what is supposed to be the most advanced country on the planet.
