AS FRANK AMODEO met with President George W. Bush at the White House to discuss NATO operations in Afghanistan, no one knew that he’d already embezzled nearly $200 million from the federal government—money he intended to use to bankroll his plan to take over the world.
“Mr. Amodeo has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, exhibiting fixed delusional beliefs,” says Darlene Antonio, PhD. “His current profile indicates an active, florid psychotic process, which includes a loss of contact with reality.” Specifically, Amodeo expresses the belief that he will be “emperor of the world.” He has been working on plans to establish his “empire” since his teenage years, states Dr. Antonio. “He believes his plans for a one-world government are divinely ordained.”
From Amodeo’s global headquarters in the shadow of Florida’s Disney World, with a nearly inexhaustible supply of the Internal Revenue Service’s funds, Amodeo acquires multiple businesses, amassing a mega-conglomerate.
Driven by his delusions of world conquest, he negotiates the purchase of a squadron of American fighter jets and the controlling interest in a former Soviet ICBM factory. He begins working to build the largest private militia on the planet—over one million Africans strong. Simultaneously, Amodeo hires an international black-ops force to orchestrate a coup in the Congo, while plotting to take over several small eastern European countries.
The most disturbing part of it all is, had the U.S. government not thwarted his plans, he might have just pulled it off.
I BELIEVE IT’S INSANITY would make a great book. Unfortunately, it’s doubtful I will ever expand the story into a full-length true crime narrative. However, at this time the 16,000 word true crime synopsis as well as the 3,000 word barbwire backstory are complete and available.
