    I have kind of admired the author a secret service former big shot who for many decades has betrayed and destroyed the lives of everyone around friends colleagues innocent citizens etc to his evil bosses and in the end for mercenary reasons or self preservation it was routine for secret service criminals who knew too much to unexpectedly die and safely take their dirty secrets to the grave has betrayed even his boss the infamous Ceausescu to the CIA To me this was pure professionalism like the contract killer who gets a better contract from the prospective victim and kills his initial mafia taskmaster I and my friends little guys crashed under Romanian communism yoke have really enjoyed the defection of the author Lt General Pacepa to the CIA the subseuent disarray of the foreign secret services the dramatic demotion of his unmasked colleagues and the public exposure of the criminal essence of communist regimes It is funny that the remaining secret service bosses have walked in Pacepa’s steps and finally in what seems to me a KGB CIA combined staged plot with the show participation of incensed masses and I am exceedingly grateful to Gorbacev for setting East Europe free have betrayed their evil masters Ceausescu and his wife sentencing them to death after a half an hour kangaroo trial and executing them on the spot in the following minutes like dogs they were in the building courtyard; pure poetic justice Secret police bosses have than taken up power turned coat become millionaires or billionaires by stealing the national wealth and to this day they rule the country with an iron fist behind the curtains It is a pity that the lesson of this turn around scheme has not been followed in Ira; it would have saved thousands of American lives I found in the book that even in 2013 Lt Gen Pacepa’s two sentences for treason to death by Ceausescu are still valid in clear defiance of the US power that otherwise the rulers of Romania easily accommodate on a profit sharing base; they cannot forgive the author for their past troubles and make it a very personal vendetta against the expressed wishes of several American presidents Sadly to me it says a lot about who is now really in chargeAs for the book itself I learned almost nothing I did not already knew and I am disappointed that the spymaster in his several books has not revealed at least a few specific dirty secret crimes from the hundreds his criminal organization has committed and has limited the books content to concocted anecdotes and generalities already known from newspapers Is he covering up something for his own preservation? I have a problem with his credibility also because in his previous book “Red horizons” he affirms witnessing Arafat’s homosexual orgies in Romania how convenient this character assassination and no photos to blackmail him later on? or Nicu Ceausescu the dictator’s son educated at Oxford pissing at a banuet on other people dishes It happened that for many years I have Nicu as my neighbor across the street and have known him as extremely polite and considerate with all the ordinary people ants for him to believe in such grotesue act nobody in Europe will do And what is the point? Instead of attacking bad manners real or invented of the ruling class why does he not focus on the real crimes of the regime? I do not have here the space to list all my reasons to distrust the authorHalf the book is spent on Pius XII who according to the author was framed as Hitler’s Pope by the KGB and his defense through a byzantine boring and long lame analysis of the play ”The deputy” whose subject is the blind eye the Pope turned on the Holocaust even when people and governments presented hard proof and conjured him to take attitude Unfortunately for the author nowadays the most interested ones the Jewish community is of the opinion that the Pope did just nothing when he could substantially help the Jews the Gypsies and others Again who is giving a dam about the integrity of Pius XII given that nobody expect anything good from a pope remember the instigations to countless religion wars the inuisition Galileo and Copernicus the crusades the ridiculous self serving doctrine of Pope’s infallibility the recent cover up of pedophiles etcNobody is so naïve to ignore that all secret services including the western ones commit crimes and reprehensible activities but to compare Jack the Ripper with Hitler or Stalin does not exonerate the first and the author offering always only one side of the story is disappointing He is going to great lengths to affirm in the same style as Rush Limbaugh that KGB has brain washed Sen John Kerry in testifying to Senate about crimes committed by soldiers in Vietnam crimes that never existed according to the author that president Obama is a crypto socialist embarked on a sinister agenda to destroy US and so on Or he seriously ventures in childish fairy tales like the one about Oswald having been sent by Khrushchev to kill Kennedy but Khrushchev having second thoughts has instructed Fidel Castro to stop the assassination plot by sending his Cuban agent Jack Ruby to kill Oswald and so on Therefore in my opinion most of the book is rubbish and a waste of time for the readers For the readers interested in a sincere and timeless indictment of the crimes of communism I rather recommend Solzhenitsyn “Gulag Archipelago” at least or interested in behind the doors KGB operations the book “Special Tasks” by the soviet spymaster Sudoplatov as well as the “The sword and the shield – the Mitrokhin archive”

preoccupied with transforming his country into a monument to himself and with controlling all expressions of religion that might in any way impinge on his political ambitionsokee dokee then as the good doctor said onward and upwardupdate finished 656 am 29 jun 13 saturdaythis is a fascinating read history is a fascinating subject i've enjoyed other spy stories historical stories like The Man Who Never WasThe House on Garibaldi Streeta handful of others disinformationa kind of yeast that is possibly the main ingredient and has been the soviet'ssoviet bloc's recipe for undermining freedom attacking religion and promoting terrorism disinformation is a way of life for those who have used it in reality disinformation is as different from misinformation as night is from day misinformation is an official government tool and recognizable as such the science of disinformation and it was specifically and proudly termed a science was born in russia it was deeply rooted in the russian soil and in that country's historypotemkin villages pacepa defines disinformation as a russian construct provides examples to define the term the april 2003 stories about the looting of the national museum in bagdadblame for the americansdisinformation eventually it was reliably reported that museum employees had hidden the supposedly looted treasures in a safe place long before the ira war started he illustrates another from recent american history the burning of churches that i recall disinformation fascinating stuffpart way into this read i came here to look at reviews of books that also have a kind of review in this pacepa's book the soviet union's disinformation war against pope pius xii is covered herein and here at goodreads there are favorable reviews of cornwell's Hitler's Pope a book that pacepa says relies mainly on secondary sources such as carlo falconi's the silence of pius xii which was based on documents counterfeited by the communist government of croatia disinformationand since then there have been other books printed one in particular that pacepa shows selectively edited a uote to disinform the reading public suzan zuccotti's under his very windowsselectively edited real uotations in order to transform positive information about pius xii into negative pacepa's partner in writing this this professor rychlak has a title that counters i believe cornwell's book about pius xii gutta cavat lapidem non vi sed saepe cadendo a drop makes a hole in stone not by force but by constant drippingor tell a lie often enough and eventually the world believesfascinating stuff hereabout oswald the kennedy assination possibly some new ideas that the reader has not yet read consideredtoowithin the last eight years or so we've heard time and again how the world hates americaand we're given to understand this is entirely the fault of george bush pacepa clearly illustrates that hatred for america and generating of that hatred has been the mo of the soviet union and the new russia under putinand like the drip drip drip it has become all the rage here in americaand i can't help but think of dostoyevsky's the idiotand to a degree his brothers k where dosty writes about the animal like hatred that was generated in russia during his day hatred for all things russian we know what happened after dosty the same animal like hatred for all things american is and has been generated due in large part to the disinformation war waged by the soviet union and her allies and now taken up on a daily basis and sung by those in that pennant race to utopiaand this animal like hatred for the pasta large part of disinformation t'would seemis also seen in the changing of the guard as has happened in russiathe soviet union a new man comes on the sceneand animal like hatred is thus generated for the man who held the reigns in the past pacepa shows us that this has happened time and again in russia consider itpacepa illustrates numerous disinformation campaigns the protocols of the elders of zionan old russian forgeryche's diaries another russian forgery how often do you see someone wearing a che tee shirt? anyway fascinating read so when the information he provides about pope pius xii clearly indicates the man was opposed to nazism that he was not anti semitic as the soviets would have the world believe pacepa informs the reader that the cover of cornwell's book used a photo mislabeled as to the year used a photo of pius in the garments of the church though not yet pope the intent it is obvious was to smear the churchand when that cover photo was changed the year corrected etc etc fascinating as i said because one can read reviews of the result of sovietsoviet bloc disinformation campaigns here at goodreadstoothere is a good amount of coverage of assassinationsand by book's end pacepa tells the reader of the disinformation campaign under way in his native romaniato rehabilitate change the history of ceausescuto make him out to be a good guy after alland to make pacepa out to be what he was notdisinformationand if current politics in america are any indication disinformation is fast becoming a way of life here be afraid be very afraid or stand and do something about it good read there is much to this booki've written in brief about only a few of the things that struck me toothe kindle book portion ends at 65% complete there follows pages and pagesabout 20% of notesi skimmed through those for the most they are 'footnotes'but than a few contain paragraphs of additional info there follows a bibliography and an index

  3. Stefania Vede Stefania Vede says:

    Reading this book made me realize why Trump's winning speech for the american people hinted at the recent loss and ridicule of authentic american values and virtues After two Obama administrations paved with the worst guilt trip anyone has ever seen it is time once again to bring back the western ideas that make this time and age the best to be alive I am curious to read other publications from this author

  4. C. P. Bittick C. P. Bittick says:

    Disinformation is a book that needs to be on every English speaking library shelf and needs to be read by every English speaking history teacherDisinformation explains of post WWII history from the perspective of one who was on the inside Author Ion Pacepa former Romanian spy chief brings modern world history alive With this as a backdrop it's clear who orchestrated JFK's assassination and who initiated world wide anti American sentiment and whipped it into a fury The answer was probably not on many Americans' radars These are the true stories behind our history that now make it all make senseThis is a book that every politically aware thinking American needs to read

  5. Chafic Chafic says:

    I read about 10% of the book and then decided to stop The topic is supposed to be about disinformation the writer being a top soviet era officer in a notorious intelligence agency Four or chapters into the book the story goes like I reached the higher positions in soviet intelligence hierarchy but I'm a good man and I'll spend the rest of this book repeating boring anecdotes and try to look credibleWhat a terrible book I'm uite surprised it gets good reviews Stopped reading

  6. Milka Milka says:

    Some good information on there but most of it should be taken with a grain of salt Lots less personal anecdotes and plenty of repetitive discourse make this a long read Overall Pacepa gives a very simplistic version of our world black and white US food Russia evil etc Unfortunately our world is mostly made of gray so things aren't that simple

  7. Jacob Jacob says:

    My experience with this was a bit up and down there was a lot of good information and interesting story tidbits about the author Pacepa's experience and what he knew about the Soviet bloc's activities but the writing isn't real engaging Many sections get very detailed in a this is what he said and this is what she said way that is hard to get through And towards the end Pacepa has complaints about events in recent US history that aren't supported as well as they need to be in order to be real believable His accusations that Barack Obama is very socialist for example based on the number of locations mainly schools in the US that have been named for him since he was elected president Partly the problem is that we've seen this kind of accusation from a number of untrustworthy sources so when it's made the argument has to be really good to differentiate it from what we've seen before Then again the author has seen a number of actual hard line socialist dictators so he would recognize similarities much better than most who live in the West Again though I'm not going to be convinced by the number of times Obama says I or me in his speeches particularly when I don't have comparable counts from other presidents or western leadersA lot of the material is good though Pacepa's relating of events from his experience make for good information and the best reading like the time he had to break the news to his boss Ceaucescu that they couldn't build a nuclear program because they just didn't have the engineering talent in Romania or when he decided to defect and did Even his reports of meeting with prominent USSR KGB leaders are absorbingPacepa's main message is that even than gathering information about what is going on in the world Communist countries' intelligence efforts were and are directed at disseminating false information to promote lies those countries wanted others to believe One of the largest examples in the book the framing of Pope Pius XII as Hitler's Pope is reviewed in too much detail for me The author is good at showing how once the original generation that remembers the truth gives way to a new one those lies often take root and eventually form a large part of public opinion One example that the assassination of JFK was a conspiracy by US sources I had guessed Oswald had done it based on Soviet provided training and direction simply based on his having moved there after becoming disaffected with the US but then moving back here again However Pacepa provides a lot information including how the USSR got cold feet but was then unable to stop Oswald and how Oswald may well have provided the USSR with the information it needed to bring down a U2 plane during the Eisenhower administration I had no idea those might be linkedIn any case most tyrants spend a lot of time polishing their image to the masses but Pacepa shows how Communist tyrants and the USSR in particular raised it to an art form

  8. Gordon Hilgers Gordon Hilgers says:

    When I first learned of this book in an article in Britain's Telegraph I was excited Why? Because I've always had the unsettling feeling that something simply isn't right about the so called collapse of the Soviet Union I've always looked at America's war with Islamic terrorism as something of a proxy war years of work by both the Soviets and the Chinese developed After all what better way than reigniting the Western world's oldest argument with an adversary as a way to exhaust American military and economic might than these piddly wars? However I was disappointed with Pacepa's obsession with some sort of Soviet plot to incinerate the reputation of Pope Pius the so called Hitler's Pope Here Pacepa goes into arcane detail about playwrights and propaganda that if true is indeed something to think about but not enough to ruin the West Pacepa himself is an expatriate refugee and former head of the Romanian secret service His claim that the former Soviet Union is the first intelligence communtiy led totalitarian state in history is close to the mark but I believe there is much to this picture than Pacepa himself reveals It is indeed true that the Soviets send thousands of operatives into the Islamic world to build schools and teach children about the so called evils of capitalism and it's not too surprising to suss out the Marxist inclinations in the beliefs of Osama bin Laden and the entire Islamic fundamentalist movement Pacepa does make a good case for this but the book is a little too breathless a little too sensationalistic and a little too tone deaf to the rigors of the fact based community in America to be the tour de force it could have been

    This book is in my opinion one of the most essential works you have to read The greatest reason is that it makes uestion whether you should or trust anything at all And even if you do trust for example a seemingly reliable source you have to keep in mind that it my just be the exterior of it That is basically what is learned in this book and for examples of this concept of disinformation is the full use of it by KGB the russian communist regime during the Cold War The author reveals some of the strategies and techniues by KGB and the Socialist Republic of Romania the comunist version of Romania before 1989 He reveals the results and all the damage inflicted into the world by the almost artistic use of disinformationHe mostly talks about what KGB did during his stay in Romania before he left the country in secret in 1978 It's mostly what he heard of or what he did before his departure and all the subjects about disinformation that he talks about in this book might not be really nice to hear in general about such stuff But this is the reality of the world and doing some research about some subjects it is all entirely trueThe only bad thing about this book which is also too much that is bad are some of subjects at the end of the book which I don't think he had access to that information but it is my opinion entirely Overall this book is one of the most important works regarding the history of the world and you can learn something from it I recommend this book to anyone who wants to know about world history and can appreciate not so nice subjects in general

  10. Tina Tamman Tina Tamman says:

    This is a disappointing book because of its self satisfied tone and lack of author credibility The author Pacepa never really says what he did as the top Romanian intelligence officer except that he spent time in Germany and once looked for a hairdresser for Mrs Ceausescu He assures us that he never killed anybody It is hard to engage with him although the book is written in the first personThe basic premise however is excellent and promising Pacepa has worked out that the Russian trump card is disinformation that was practised in all of the Soviet bloc Romania included and the idea has not died even now It is fascinating to read what dictionaries and even publishers make of the word So far so good The central story of Hitler's Pope is interesting in places and takes us beyond the half way mark After that however comes a lot of anti American rant that is hard to tie to the core of the book Maybe I just lost interest
