Bizarre military history: In 1979, a crack commando unit was established by the most gifted minds within the U.S. Army. Defying all known laws of physics and accepted military practice, they believed that a soldier could adopt the cloak of invisibility, pass cleanly through walls, anda??perhaps most chillinglya??kill goats just by staring at them. They were the First Earth Battalion, entrusted with defending America from all known adversaries. And they really werena??t joking. Whata??s more, theya??re backa??and theya??re fighting the War on Terror.
An uproarious exploration of American military paranoia: With investigations ranging from the mysterious a??Goat Lab,a?? to Uri Gellera??s covert psychic work with the CIA, to the increasingly bizarre role played by a succession of U.S. presidents, this might just be the funniest, most unsettling book you will ever reada??if only because it is all true and is still happening today.
