A shocking expose of the CIA's role as drug baron. On March 18, 1998, the CIA's Inspector General, Fred Hitz, told astounded US Reps that the CIA had maintained relationships with companies and individuals that the Agency knew to be involved in the drug business. More shocking was the revelation that the CIA had received from Reagan's Justice Department clearance not to report any knowledge it might have of drug-dealing by CIA assets. Many years' worth of CIA denials, much of it under oath to Congress, were sunk. Hitz's admissions made fools of some of the most prominent names in US journalism and vindicated others that had been ruined. Particularly resonant was the case of the San Jose Mercury News, which published a sensational series on CIA involvement in the smuggling of cocaine into black urban neighborhoods, and then under pressure conspired in the destruction of its own reporter, Gary Webb. In Whiteout, Alexander Cockburn and Jeffrey St. Clair finally put the whole story together, from the earliest days, when the CIA's institutional ancestors cut a deal with America's premier gangster and drug trafficker, Lucky Luciano. This is a thrilling history that stretches from Sicily in 1944 to the killing fields of Laos and Vietnam, to CIA safe houses in Greenwich Village and San Francisco where CIA men watched Agency-paid prostitutes feed LSD to unsuspecting clients. We meet Oliver North, as he plotted with Manuel Noriega and Central American gangsters. We travel to little-known airports in Costa Rica and Arkansas. We hear from drug pilots and accountants from the Cali Cartel. We learn of DEA agents whose careers were ruined because they tried to tell the truth. Cockburn and St. Clair show how the CIA's complicity with drug-dealing criminal gangs was part and parcel of its attacks on labor organizers, whether on the docks of New York, Marseilles, or Shanghai. They trace how the Cold War and counter-insurgency led to an alliance between the Agency and the vilest of war criminals like Klaus Barbie, or fanatic opium traders like the mujahedin in Afghanistan. Cockburn and St. Clair horrifyingly affirm charges of outraged black communities that the CIA had undertaken enduring programs of experiments on minorities. They show that the CIA imported Nazi scientists straight from their labs at Dachau and Buchenwald and set to work, developing chemical and biological agents, tested on blacks, some of them in mental hospitals. Cockburn and St. Clair dissect the shameful way American journalists have not only turned a blind eye to the Agency's misdeeds, but also helped plunge the knife into those who tried to tell the truth. Fact-packed and fast-paced, Whiteout is a richly detailed excavation of the CIA's dirtiest secrets. For anyone who wants to know the real truth about the Agency, this is the book to start with.

»Lieber Amundsen, Scott ist tot. Melde dich, Wilson." Die E-Mail, die Hannas Welt ins Wanken bringt, besteht nur aus einer Zeile und erreicht die Wissenschaftlerin ausgerechnet während einer wichtigen Antarktisexpedition, von der sie neue Erkenntnisse über das Klima der Vergangenheit erwartet. Mit einem Schlag ist die Erinnerung an ihre beste Jugendfreundin Fido wieder da, die vor zwanzig Jahren ohne Erklärung den Kontakt abbrach und damit alle gemeinsamen Zukunftspläne verriet. In der endlosen Weite des Eises lassen die ungeklärten Fragen von damals Hanna immer mehr die Kontrolle verlieren. Als die Spannungen in ihrem kleinen Forscherteam zunehmen und dann auch noch ein Schneesturm den Erfolg ihres Projektes gefährdet, wird die Zeit im Eis endgültig zur Zerreißprobe.

Beim polaren Whiteout wird Sonnenlicht so diffus von der Schnee- und Wolkendecke reflektiert, dass sich im Auge des geblendeten Betrachters bestimmte Kontraste auflösen. Sabine Frost überträgt diese verunsicherte Wahrnehmung auf einen Leser literarischer Texte, der bei seiner Lektüre ebenso mit desorientierenden Phänomenen konfrontiert wird. Dabei werden sowohl die gestörte Wahrnehmung als ästhetische Erscheinung als auch der Bruch mit herkömmlichen Formen künstlerischer Repräsentation untersucht.

Filled with startling twists, Whiteout is the ultimate knife-edge drama from Ken Follett - an international bestselling author who is in a class of his own. As a blizzard whips down from the north on Christmas Eve, several people converge on a remote family house. Stanley Oxenford, director of a pharmaceutical research company, has everything riding on a drug he is developing to fight a lethal virus. Several others are interested in his success too: his children, at home for Christmas with their offspring, have their eyes on the money he will make; Toni Gallo, head of his security team and recently forced to resign from the police, is betting her career on keeping it safe; an ambitious local television reporter sniffs a story, even if he has to bend the facts to tell it; and a violent trio of thugs are on their way to steal it, with a client already waiting. As the storm worsens and the group is held under siege by the elements, the emotional sparks crackle and dark secrets are revealed that threaten to drive Stanley and his family apart for ever.
