What if any psycho anywhere could get a nuclear weapon for free?

The epic action thriller tells the secret history of blacker than black ops from the JFK hit to the RFK hit to Chappaquddick to the Altamont concert to the WMDs of Iraq (they were all black ops) to free nuclear weapons on the Internet in 2017.

Not so good

I had a very hard time convincing myself to finish this one. When it was over I wished that I had not wasted my time even starting it.
