As the Western world scrambles to respond to Russia’s stunning deployment of troops in Ukraine, a co-author of the bestselling book “Disinformation” will be asked to provide insight on Glenn Beck’s radio and television shows Tuesday.
Ron Rychlak co-authored “Disinformation: Former Spy Chief Reveals Secret Strategies for Undermining Freedom, Attacking Religion, and Promoting Terrorism” with former Romanian spy chief Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa, the highest-ranking Soviet bloc intelligence official to defect to the West.
Beck’s nationally syndicated radio show airs from 9 a.m. to noon Eastern Time. Rychlak is scheduled to be a studio guest in the first hour.
The television show on the Blaze TV network, the “Glenn Beck Program,” is broadcast at 5 p.m. Eastern.
In an email interview last month with Beck’s Internet news service, the Blaze, Pacepa said the “very idea that the Soviet Union was defeated is disinformation in itself.”
“The Soviet Union changed its name and dropped its façade of Marxism,” Pacepa said, “but it remained the same samoderzhaviye, the historical Russian form of autocracy in which a tsar is running the country with the help of his political police. ”
Pacepa noted that during the Soviet era, “the KGB was a state within the state,” but now “the KGB is the state.”
Pacepa does not conduct radio and TV interviews, because he still lives under an alias due to continued threats on his life.
Rychlak, a historian and law professor at the University of Mississippi School of Law, teaches courses in constitutional law criminal procedure and terrorism and the law. Before co-authoring “Disinformation” with Pacepa, he authored several other books, including “Hitler, the War, and the Pope.”
Beck praised Pacepa on his radio show last month after the former spy chief’s interview with his news service.
Beck pointed out that nearly 40 years after his defection, Pacepa still was living under an alias due to threats on his life that began with Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu’s dispatching of assassination squads from Romania to the U.S.
“He held information that was so important that they would kill him today for it,” Beck said. “Think of that.”
Pacepa’s book, reviewed by the Blaze, reveals how the Soviet Union employed a strategy to undermine freedom, attack religion and promote terrorism worldwide.
Pacepa exposed the massive crimes and corruption of his former boss, Ceausescu, giving the dictator a nervous breakdown and prompting him to post two different million-dollar bounties on Pacepa’s head. Pacepa today lives in the U.S. as a “proud American citizen.”
