Introduction I began formulating my hypotheses during the Bush II administration – with the “Office of Special Plans” the 2003 Iraq Invasion, and Abu Ghraib, the United States was becoming unrecognizable to me - something had gone terribly wrong. I worked as an engineer at the Intel Corporation for some 14 yrs after working in Durban, South Africa in embedded-control software design. I received my bachelor's degree in Political Science and History from the University of California at Davis in 2019. I wish to thank the authors/publishers of the reference material which continues to prove essential and aviation author/historian Tom Cooper, who helped me fill in some of the blanks and graciously made some very important-obscure historical photographs available. Also to professor emeritus Andrew J. Bacevich; professor of history and international relations at Boston University for taking the time to leave his comment. Thank You, Professor!
