Michael Ledeen - Man of the World

An interesting biographical piece on Michael Ledeen, author of The War against the Terror Masters, which appeared in the Boston Globe back in October. Interesting trivia, Ledeen wrote a book, "The First Duce", on Italian poet Gabriele D'Annunzio, who is mentioned in Thomas Pynchon's novel "V". D'Annunzio led a military coup to capture the Italian port city of Fiume in 1919 because he feared that it would be ceded to Yugoslavia in the aftermath of WWI.
