Russ Baker is an investigative journalist and editor-in-chief of the research website WhoWhatWhy.

A celebrated and award-winning journalist, prior to writing Family Of Secrets he had no great awareness of deep politics, although he has commented that "To some extent, I’ve always been a little bit suspicious of the surface narrative. I think that what has changed is my understanding of the profundity of the disconnect between what we’re told and the reality of what’s going on."[1]

On 16 August 2016, Russ Baker published A Story I Had to Leave Out of My Book.[2]

Family Of Secrets

Full article: Stub class article Family Of Secrets

Russ Baker's magnum opus is Family Of Secrets, first published in 2009. When he started writing it in 2004, his initial goal was to discover how someone as unlikely as George W. Bush could have become US President.[4] In the course of several years of research, he gradually pieced together a sprawling backstory involving George H. W. Bush's career long involvement in the CIA, making the book a highly revealing read for anyone interested in understanding the US Deep State. Before writing it, Baker says, he shied away from investigating certain controversial topics, wary of being labeled a nut or a crackpot. But now, "the gloves are off",[1] although in 2016 he commented that the story about John Hinckley's family connection to the Bush Family was "story was so baffling and off-putting that... I.. did not mention it."[5] Mark Gorton cites as this book as a major influence on his groundbreaking Fifty Years of The Deep State.

PageQuoteDateSource
Albert E. Jenner“Albert Jenner was truly a curious choice for the [Warren] commission staff. He was fundamentally a creature of the anti-Kennedy milieu - a corporate lawyer whose principal work was defending large companies against government trust-busting... Jenner's most important client was Chicago financier Henry Crown, who was the principal shareholder in General Dynamics, then the nation's largest defense contractor and a major employer in the Fort Worth area.”2009Family Of Secrets
