It was an effort organized and directed by high level employees who ranged far beyond the parameters of the Bernardi Consent Decree as approved by a federal judge.The narrative is based on an enormous stash of documents located at a federal records center and interviews with former employees. To carry out a doctrine that broke the morale and backbone of its workforce, the agency launched a thirty year campaign of mendacity, embracing scores of programs designed to hire the unqualified over the qualified. The end result is an agency now incapable of carrying out its mission of managing 193 million acres of forest lands. In truth, since 1990 America has lost 113 million acres to wildfire.This extensively researched book will leave readers in a state of shock over the decline of of one of Americas most venerable institutions.
