Steve Kangas worked for military intelligence[Which?][Where?] until 1986.
Change of Heart
Kangas describes as a wake-up call "the terrorist bombing of a Berlin discotheque only a few blocks away from my living quarters. In response, Reagan ordered the bombing of Libya, even though it later turned out that we had no proof they did it." Another was the Soviet assassination of Major Arthur Nicholson, "one of my intelligence compratiots, whose funeral I attended. The image of his 4-year old daughter clutching a Cabbage Patch doll throughout the entire service is one that is forever burned into my memory." He quit the intelligence service for a degree in the University of California, Santa Cruz.
Kangas was well respected as an acute thinker, and as a frequent poster on usenet in the 1990's and often sharply critical of propaganda of the "overclass" and the CIA. Mark Gorton credits him as one of the three people "who have most succinctly explained the workings of the Bush Crime Family".
He died of a gunshot wound to the head under unclear circumstances. He was found on the 39th floor in the restroom of the offices of Richard Mellon Scaife inside One Oxford Center, Pittsburgh. Police and ambulance EMTs reported that he was shot in the left side of the head, though the coroner only reports a wound in the roof of the mouth and no exit wound.
It was ruled a suicide by local police.
