Cole . . . effectively buttresses his arguments with evidence from primary sources and makes a solid, easily readable case for the need for public and congressional oversight.
— Choice Reviews
Cole's book addresses a serious structural problem of constitutional democracy. It is obvious from a reading . . . that the public should demand more protection and Congress should mandate it.
Clouds of Secrecy focuses on the major issue in our state at this time. I commend it to every Utahan and to every American.
— Professor Edwin Firmage, School of Law, University of Utah
. . . Through painstaking investigation of participants and publications, he has written not only a real horror story but, even more important, shown how conscientious individuals were led to risk the health and even the lives of fellow Americans in several cities.
— Poltics and The Life Sciences
Cole has produced a penetrating study of the Army's clandestine 20-year biological warfare testing operation. . . . a persuasive case that Army planners knew-or should have known-they were exposing the young, the old and the medically 'compromised' to infections at 239 sites around the country.
