With the arrival of British secret agent Intrepid on American shores, a secret apparatus began spying on political leaders. Winston Churchill had sent Intrepid to the United States with one mission: drag America into WW II as quickly as possible. Sir William Stephenson began 'tail' operations to blackmail members of Capitol Hill and the executive branch who did not openly support Britain's aims and desires. The anti-war movement in the United States was destroyed even though it was rooted on Main Street, and replaced by the bonfires of belligerence. Political leaders who were previously anti-war abruptly changed their postions after an editorial assault from local newspapers, or surreptitious activities of false propaganda organs run by the British Secret Service. FDR used his friendships in the press to destroy the opposition to the Lend-Lease program by any means necessary, including illegal wiretaps, break-ins Watergate style, and outright blackmail using government funds. FDR knowingly used Department of Agriculture funds to finance the William Allen White Committee, which proved to be a British front. William Allen White himself resigned from the group in disgust. FDR's affair with New York Post owner Dorothy Schiff is documented in great detail, and her role in the Nazi Spy Nest Case is revealed for the first time. Schiff destroyed her lover's chief nemesis, United States Senator David Walsh, the very liberal anti-war leader who opposed FDR's Lend_Lease policies. Even American icon Charles Lindbergh could not stand up to a withering smear campaign. While Walsh was 'outed' as a homosexual caught in a Nazi brothel, the author proves conclusively that the case was a complete fiction, a media creation of the New York Post.
