Freeman explains persuasively and clearly why we may be beginning the third act of a monetary and fiscal tragedy. You don’t care about dark pools, huge Middle-Eastern sovereign wealth funds, naked short selling, and bear runs? I’m afraid you will, and rather soon.”
—R. James Woolsey, Chairman of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and former Director of Central Intelligence
Every American needs to understand how our financial markets have been manipulated by people who want to destroy the nation and how they can do even greater damage in the future. This book is a critical read for everyone.”
—William G. Boykin, Lt. Gen. USA (ret), former Commander of U.S. Army Special Forces and founding member of Delta Force
Kevin Freeman’s alarming proposition on economic warfare merits attention from those at the highest levels entrusted with our nation’s security. It is incumbent on the U.S. intelligence and defense community, financial regulators, and those with advanced financial acumen to assess and address this modern security vulnerability. Warfare continues to evolve. As the United States remains vigilant against emerging threats, we must appreciate newfound challenges to longstanding assumptions about how our enemies could exploit our financial markets with potentially devastating consequences for our nation.”
—Congressman Bill Posey
Kevin Freeman has done an exceptional job working with open source financial data. This is a superb effort to expose extreme vulnerabilities to our financial system. With today’s international markets in such a fragile and volatile state, Freeman’s work deserves serious reflection. To do so would cost little. To dismiss it outright might cost us everything.”
—Thomas W. O’Connell, former Assistant Secretary of Defense (Special Operations) (2003-2007) and former member of the NASDAQ Public Board of Directors

However, with the repeated culpability of the US government, its agencies, and systems, one had the continuous and lingering suspicion that we were being shown the door of reality without it being allowed to open. In other words, with the mass of facts and circumstances documented by Freeman, one gets the overwhelming sense that somewhere within the labyrinthine canyons of (US and others) government bureaucracy and politics there lurks some folks who actively aided and abetted the financial terrorism foisted upon this country and the western world; because the incredible vulnerabilities that were opened and remain open for such terrorism opportunities were known and shown to all parties that SHOULD have acted to protect the country. But they didn't. Even worse, nothing has changed, the fundamental vulnerabilities remain and there is no plan to change the system to protect the US and the western world. Oh, yeah, bureaucrats talked, but nothing was ever done. the WH doesn't want to know.
I'm just suspicious enough to wonder about all this. You might be, too after you read it.
As excellent is Freeman's treatment of the potential threat to the US from its number one debtor, not coyly refusing to show how China can and may use its economic muscle to dominate the world stage, making the US a very weak nation in that process through open economic warfare.

I first asked how this could be possible, since the media and our own Central Intelligence Agency were not even aware this was a threat possibility and the fact that we are being attacked in a three-phased attack. Kevin explains how Sovereign Wealth funds, those funds controlled by foreign governments mostly in the Middle East, could embark on major market manipulations by using our own market rules to evaporate trillions in wealth almost overnight. Kevin clearly explains what these weapons are and how they are being used against us. Some of the tactics include, naked short selling, high frequency trading, naked sponsored access, and the uptick rule. Each of these complicated financial maneuvers was used to bring down major Wall Street companies and has made our economy weak.
These same attacks are being waged in against the Euro markets and now we have entered phase three and this book explains how we can both protect our financial assets and what can be done to stop future attacks.
