The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America’s Secret Government


An explosive account of masterspy Allen Dulles’ subversion of the US Government and constitution to create and operate the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)  to serve and protect the Shadow Government’s purpose. The same Shadow government Allen Dulles made his lifes work to organise into existence.

During his career he intervened on behalf of NAZI war criminals. De Facto created and implemented American foreign policy. He defied and lied to congress, ignoring the requests of elected officials, avoiding all attempts to oversee their plans and schemes and methods.  An arrogant  characteristic of US intelligence services which plague the US and the world today.

When Eisenhower made his famous speech warning America and the world of the military-industrial complex, men like Allen Dulles and his wall st and Pentegon cronies were the ones he had in mind, few in number great in power and the art of deception

The way the US Government institutions work today is the product of sinister forces at work on their very foundations since the years before the second world war. The Devil’s Chessboard provides the context for many inexplicable decisions taken by the US and the motivations of the men behind them. The cost in lives and money has been terrible and yet it goes on. Imagine that a shadow government really does exist which can circumvent democracy and the constitution.

The author David Talbot follows the careers, motivation and exploits of two brothers. Foster and Allen Dulles. whose overt and covert influence over the United States of America’s place in the world has been woefully neglected or pehaps deliberately hidden. Allen Dulles influence remains to this day through the institutions he supported and brought into being then relentlessly bent to his will. His stock in trade was sedition and subversion on behalf of a shadow US government against nations of the world in general and the constitution of the United States in particular through Allen Dulles evil masterpeice the Central Intelligence Agency.

On one of the inside pages David Talbot begins by noting an inscription Allen Dulles chose for his CIA’S Langley HQ

“And ye shall know the truth and the truth will set you free” after readng the book I would add

“Just make sure the truth never gets out and murder it and the bastard who tries to tell it”

This book provides so many leads and first hand accounts which dispute the establishment’s laundered view of the state actors of the past. You are forced to rethink the way the world really works and who really rules in America.

The US shadow government’s origins, architecture and influence have long been argued over but gradually the monster is coming into view. The Devil’s Chessboard hints at the complex, logical mind of the human Devil capable of devising d and then covering up who rigged the game and is playing it from the grave. To insiders an evil mastermind with razor sharp analytical skills and the cold blooded conscience of a salt water crocodile. To outsiders a formidable adversary capable of any act legal or illegal to get what he wanted. In many cases you would not know what hit you when his agents struck.

John F Kennedy was an outsider.
