As someone who keeps up with what the top five intelligence agencies in the world are up to, this book
was not a disappointment. The reason is simple. This is an Abwehr (German Military Intelligence) text, masquerading
as a Canadian Military Intelligence text. Lest this review be taken down, I will give five lucid reasons:
1. There is no name Hamilton in Canada. Hamilton is the name of a city in Canada.
2. There are no names Rimsas and Thomson in Canada as well. The correct spelling of Thomson is Thompson, which is an
Australian name, even though some members of the Thompson family live in Canada.
3. Canadian military intelligence officers do not go to art school as stated in this text. OCAD (Ontario College Of Art
And Design). This is a tradition within right-wing Canadian military intelligence to not take anyone from a left-wing
school. What the gentleman is saying by saying he went to OCAD is that he is a German intelligence officer, since, as
you well know, art is highly respected in Germany, and a German military intelligence officer would have no trouble
going to a German art school and then on to his or her profession of German intelligence.
4. A Canadian military intelligence officer would never include actual Canadian statutes at the end of a book because
the price of a book with Canadian copyright material would be US $ 80. A German trained officer has no
understanding of this as there are no statutes under copyright in Germany.
5. In conclusion, if the gentleman had not mentioned the case of Omar Khadr, I would have assumed he was just poorly
trained. Omar Khadr was put into prison for taking the life of a US serviceman at age sixteen. In precedent,
there is no way for anyone, whether given the ethereal label ' enemy combatant', or the label 'criminal,' to
be sent to jail in the US. Any Canadian military officer would be thoroughly briefed on this topic as it
impinges on Canadian sovereignty. A minor cannot be tried as an adult in the US when the crime has occured outside
national boundaries. However it is politically possible to put someone sixteen years of age in jail as long as it
outside the US national boundaries. What Mr. Hamilton has stated is the German political position, which he has every
right to do so.
