Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

From the bestselling author of Them: Adventures with Extremists, the hilarious and unsettling (The Boston Globe) true story about what happened when a small group of men--highly placed within the US military, government, and intelligence services--began believing in very strange things.

In 1979 a secret unit was established by the most gifted minds within the U.S. Army. Defying all known accepted military practice--and indeed, the laws of physics--they believed that a soldier could adopt a cloak of invisibility, pass cleanly through walls, and, perhaps most chillingly, kill goats just by staring at them.

Entrusted with defending America from all known adversaries, they were the First Earth Battalion. And they really weren't joking. What's more, they're back and fighting the War on Terror.

With firsthand access to the leading players in the story, Ronson traces the evolution of these bizarre activities over the past three decades and shows how they are alive today within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and in postwar Iraq. Why are they blasting Iraqi prisoners of war with the theme tune to Barney the Purple Dinosaur? Why have 100 debleated goats been secretly placed inside the Special Forces Command Center at Fort Bragg, North Carolina? How was the U.S. military associated with the mysterious mass suicide of a strange cult from San Diego? The Men Who Stare at Goats answers these and many more questions.
