This article delves into the world of weapon dealers and arm sales, where, Silverstein writes, they "operate within a maze of front companies, aliases, and Swiss bank accounts." Told through an account of an arms dealer in Virginia, who reportedly had a major role in almost every U.S. operation against Communisim, this story is "a virtual how-to guide for covert operations...(and) reveals the relationship between governments and black-market arms dealers, and affords us new insight into American foreign policy since World War II."
