Britain's funniest and most insightful satirist reveals extraordinary military secrets at the core of George W. Bush's War on Terror.

Entertaining and alarming in equal parts, this is a true account of the US military's experimentation with the supernatural.

Entrusted with defending America from all known adversaries, they were the First Earth Battalion. And they really weren't joking. What's more, they're back and fighting the War on Terror.

I can see that a certain type of reader might find it very interesting, but it just didnt do it for me. As I raise goats, for 4H and for milk, I try to read anything that has to do with goats. This unfortunately was not so much about the goat staring as the men and the programs that did the staring. Unusual... "

    " Fascinating tale - well worth reading even if you've seen the movie as the dark, disturbing applications non-lethal approaches is explored more fully and with greater currency "
