"Harold Holt's strategy"[edit]

In reality, it was CIA director William J. Casey's strategy; one so convoluted that Casey, a devout Roman Catholic & one-time OSS operative, imagined the Soviets as the Muslims occupying Jerusalem & the mujahideen as the Christian crusaders send by God to defeat them. This according to Steve Coll, in his "Ghost Wars" book.
