    I see no indication that the book mentions anti-missile defense, even though Reagan strongly supported such efforts precisely to get away from MAD. I will also note that Reagan (like Thatcher) was quick to assess Gorbachev as someone who (unlike the previous Soviet tsars) they could deal with, and the book apparently makes no mention of this.

    You are correct in both points, the sole basis is the author belief in a questionable theory of priming. The book is nothing more than a back door attack on Reagan’s intelligence after all how could a mere actor know more than all those Ph.d’s?

    Thank you for standing up for Reagan. I have been distressed about the revisionism of history going on. The lies are so blatant and no one seems to refute them. The swamis look into some crystal ball, press their hands to their temples, and divine what someone in the past thought, not what they said or actually did. Of course their crystal balls are never wrong. And the oracles sell their wares to unsuspecting fools who know no history.

      Anyone who has read the diaries will understand that Reagan was a complex man who understood the nuance of statecraft and had no problem sticking pins in the liberal mantra, “its not that our foes are bad people, its just that everything they believe is wrong.”
