A new book "Homeland Insecurity" by Terry D. Turchie and Dr. Kathleen Puckett tears off the veil covering the underlying root causes of the blunders and self-serving machinations that proliferates in the nation's capitol. It is a book dealing with the corruptive nature of addiction to power that has, and is occurring in the Congress and the Executive Branch.

Naming names and citing instances in case-like study, the authors, Turchie, a former official of the FBI and Puckett, a clinical psychologist and founder of the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Program, have brought a shining light to the ugly, dark recesses of Washington. "When one turns the pages of "Homeland Insecurity,"" said Don Bracken, Publisher of History Publishing Company, "one can better understand the problems so prevalent in the economy today. The psychology relative to the self-serving mismanagement of money matters in Congress by the politicians and platforms of power becomes understandable. But it is the original purpose of the book, the examination of the loss of transparency of law that is most alarming. The economy is reversible, the loss of the transparency of law may be irreversible."

Presented in case-like study, authors Turchie and Puckett, cite names of Washington officials and focus on their iactions that have eroded the investigative powers of the FBI, the one agency empowered to investigate them. Alarming, is the replacement of key FBI functions governed by the transparency of law with domestic surveillance agents reportable to entrenched political forces. "It is a frightening time in which we live," said Bracken, "Terry Turchie and Kathleen Puckett have brought an important awareness to the American public by openly examining a subject that is rarely touched upon, the addiction to power by office- holders as a disruptive force in American life. Non-partisan, "Homeland Insecurity" examines recognizable names from both major parties.
