The Rebirth of Our Nation
by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

``Some among you know how to keep excellent track of the fact that this is Saturday; but, just can't seem to remember which decade this is!''
In fact, shortly before the time of the death of President Franklin Roosevelt, who died April 12, 1945, OSS director ``Wild Bill'' Donovan had held his last meeting with that President. Another OSS officer, who would be, later, a close collaborator of mine, had accompanied Donovan into the White House anteroom to the President's office.
Donovan, walking out from the President's office, had turned to the prominent OSS officer who had accompanied him to and from that visit, then murmured to his companion: ``It's over.''
About a quarter-century later, as I came to know it at the beginning of the formation of what was about to become the Presidency of the elected Ronald Reagan, in the late 1970s and early 1980s, much of the ``inside history'' of what had been the OSS became known to me, largely through the then confidential nature of my own, various, later obligations respecting the tradition of the organization and development of the U.S. Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), which came to me in my then continuing role as among the founders of the Fusion Energy Foundation (FEF).
