The Greatest Vendetta On Earth

from the expanding-a-bit... dept

Okay, this one isn’t exactly a technology story, but it’s so interesting that I just have to post it. It’s the story behind the company behind Ringling Brothers-Barnum & Bailey Circus hired former CIA agents to destroy the life of a writer over the period of eight years following an article she wrote about the company (that didn’t even sound that bad). They also infiltrated various animal protection groups to try to hurt them. The twists and turns of the story (and this is only part I) make it seem like an unbelievable crime novel – and not a real story. If you want to find out the details of a real conspiracy, read this article. If someone hasn’t decided to write a book or make a movie out of this story, they should.
