Mehring Books has published The CIA Democrats, a detailed exposure of the effective takeover of the 2018 Democratic Party congressional campaign by candidates drawn from the ranks of former intelligence agents, special forces operatives, veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and civilian national security operatives from the State Department, National Security Council and Pentagon.
The CIA Democrats analyzes the connection between the unprecedented influx of candidates with a military-intelligence background and drastic shift in the Democratic Party to the right, expressed in its efforts to promote the anti-Russian campaign, attacking the Trump administration from the right on foreign policy, and demanding a more confrontational approach toward Moscow in the Middle East, Central Asia and Eastern Europe.
The pamphlet includes the three-part series published by the World Socialist Web Site March 7-9, 2018 and a subsequent perspective commenting on the historical implications of the CIA takeover of the Democratic Party, as well as a chart detailing the more than 50 former military-intelligence operatives now seeking Democratic congressional nominations in contested districts.
Patrick Martin, the author of The CIA Democrats, is a senior writer for the World Socialist Web Site and a member of the National Committee of the Socialist Equality Party (US).
