On May 25, 1941, Commander Ian Fleming entered the United States on a secret mission: to encourage the United States to centralize its intelligence operations in a single agency and to help choose the chief of the new agency. Mark Riebling tells the story with great skill in his timely book Wedge: The secret war between the FBI and the CIA. Fleming was a warrior for freedom and a friend of the United States.
Fleming’s contributions to freedom continued after WW II with his series of James Bond novels. Although the Bond movie franchise has long since taken on a life of its own, our friend and faithful reader Bruce Sanborn appreciates the political subtext of the films. Bruce’s column on the latest entry in the Bond franchise (“Die Another Day”) is “The Bond, James Bond.” (Courtesy of the Claremont Institute Web site.)
