Subject: Re: References Regarding Iron Mountain?

The reference I recall to Iron Mountain was a book published
in 1967 that later turned out to be a spoof.



The Report from Iron Mountain is a book published in 1967
(during the Johnson Administration) by Dial Press which puts
itself forth as the report of a government panel. The book
includes the claim it was authored by a Special Study Group of
fifteen men whose identities were to remain secret and that it
was not intended to be made public. It details the analyses of a
government panel which concludes that war, or a credible
substitute for war, is necessary if governments are to maintain
power. The book was a New York Times bestseller and has been
translated into fifteen languages. Controversy still swirls over
whether the book was a satiric hoax about think-tank logic and
writing style or the product of a secret government panel. The
document is a favorite among conspiracy theorists, who seem
unaware that in 1972 the satirist Leonard Lewin admitted the
book was a spoof and that he was its author.

There may be references to Iron Mountain that don't relate to
this 50 year old publication, but I wanted to mention it.
