This chapter talks about the Rockefeller Report, as it quickly became known, which made headlines across America. In the view of the authors of the Rockefeller Report, the Pentagon's management track record failed on all counts. The report offered a way to reform the Pentagon, strengthen America's defenses, and as a result, achieve nothing less than the preservation, if not the expansion, of the free world. Rockefeller and his associates invested more than $550,000 in Itek by purchasing both stock and convertible bonds in the company. Itek had broken into the black, turning a small profit. Meanwhile, Walkowicz had even more astounding news to report that Itek was on the verge of making its first acquisition. Even though Itek had just been selected to produce the backup camera for Project Corona, Leghorn and Walkowicz probably had bigger ideas.
