Fox News on Confidential: "This Is A Deadly Serious Book"
Fox News editorial comment on Confidential:
"The Life of Secret Agent Turned Hollywood Tycoon Arnon Milchan, has already received considerable publicity in the tabloids for its sprinkling of a few salacious tidbits about celebrities. But do not allow that to fool you. This is a deadly serious book, chock-a-block with far more weighty revelations than a few details about Brad and Angelina’s love life."
With the publication of “Confidential,” it seems that a mystery has been solved. As described, not only was Arnon Milchan a covert operative, but a key figure whose many far-flung companies served as fronts for Israeli intelligence, as well as for securing technology and materials for Israel’s nuclear weapons program.
The book also asserts that he fronted off-shore bank accounts that financed the special needs of Israeli intelligence worldwide, including some of its most important and well know operations… and that those bank accounts were capitalized by “commissions” earned on large arms transactions that Milchan himself “brokered” on behalf of the Israeli government.
A man who as a Hollywood producer brought such classics as L.A. Confidential, Once Upon a Time In America and Pretty Woman... also lived an intriguing covert existence that in many ways puts the fictitious James Bond to shame."
