Based on never-before-published FBI files, Soviet archives, and other primary sources, Dupes reveals:
•Shocking reports on how Senator Ted Kennedy secretly approached the Soviet leadership to undermine not one but two American presidents
•Stunning new evidence that Frank Marshall Davismentor to a young Barack Obamahad extensive Communist ties and demonized Democrats
•Jimmy Carters woeful record dealing with Americas two chief foes of the past century, Communism and Islamism
•Todays dupes, including the congressmen whose overseas anti-American propaganda trip was allegedly financed by foreign intelligence
•How Franklin Roosevelt was duped by "Uncle Joe" Stalinand by a top adviser who may have been a Soviet agentdespite clear warnings from fellow Democrats
•How John Kerrys accusations that American soldiers committed war crimes in Vietnam may have been the product of Soviet disinformation
•The many Hollywood stars who were duped, including Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Katharine Hepburn, Gene Kellyand even Ronald Reagan
