Remembering JFK

JFK and the Unspeakable coverOne might suppose that with all that's been written about JFK there's little new to add. One would be wrong. Not exactly the cold warrior of conventional history, Jack Kennedy was turning, in a radical way, toward peace. It was too much for certain secret American power-brokers, who killed him. James W. Douglass does us a tremendous service with his revisionist history, JFK and the Unspeakable, which offers the most dramatic reminder that we can choose — indeed, that we must choose — not to have a militarized, warlike society. It was very kind of Jim to talk with me and I learned a great deal. I cannot recommend his book highly enough. Total runtime an hour and ten minutes. Dulce bellum inexpertis. ☮

A worthy choice. Even from my deeply skeptical perspective I confess to a glimmer of hope after hearing this interview.

Angleton was up to his neck in the Kennedy assassination. And that of Mary Pinchot-Meyer, whose role in facilitating Kennedy's change of heart should not be overlooked. I wonder if she is in 'JFK and the Unspeakable'. I guess I'll find out when it gets here.

George: If you have reservations about the role of James Jesus Angleton you might like to read Lisa Pease's two part article in Probe magazine July-August and September-October 2001. You might also like to follow James de Eugenio's (so far) four part review of Bugliosi's magnum opus on the ctka.net website.

James Douglass was also interviewed over several weeks on the blackop radio website. Thanks for the interview. The more people who hear JD and read his book the better.

You seem to be getting into the JFK thing lately and that's good. Yes, I remember EXACTLY where I was when I learned. Hard-wired into my being.

You might want to check out the book that Thom Hartmann co-authored on this, "Legacy of Secrecy". As for interviews, Thom usually defers to his co-author, Lamar Waldron. I've heard them speak on this a few times on Thom's radio program, but these have pretty much been what fits into a single radio segent. I would be nice to hear Lamar under your format of perhaps an hour or so.

P.S. I lost audio on my computer for a good while and just got it back. What a pleasure to once again hear your interviews. I love the long format stuff. So much more to learn.

George,

It has been a pleasure to listen along as you have expanded your understanding of 911 Truth (questions) and the assassinations (JFK, RFK, MLK, etc.). These subjects are not comfortable, but understanding them are essential for appreciation of our true history. Keep the thread going — keep covering these subjects from time to time.

I would second the recommendation above re. James de Eugenio and Lisa Pease. Look up John Judge as well — he lives in Washington, D.C. You can get a sense of their work from interviews at BlackOp Radio.

Thank you for your work!

George, I enjoyed the broadcast with James Douglass. I'm glad he wrote the book. I've read much about the assassination and JFK over the years and think I have heard all these stories in some place or other. I'm glad he put it all together. Since I haven't read it, I'm not sure what he means by National Security State, but certainly the CIA was and still is controlling and influencing our nation's policies and they were obviously the locus in setting up the assassination.

Your description of a "clunky" style is very inadequate. You need to elaborate on that.

Overall, though, a good interview.

Thanks George. I just re-listened to your James Douglas interview. And also to the Russ Baker interview. Together they weave a deeply colored intricate tapestry of JFK, the Bush crime family, and our corporate/oligarchic modern world. Recommend a new book: Headshot, the Science behind the JFK Assassination, by G. Paul Chambers. BTW, ever read James Elroy's American Tabloid series and The Cold Six-Thousand? Very thought provoking sequential novels about murders of JFK, MLK, and RFK, and America ca 1958-1970.

This is the most genuine podcast I have heard yet.

This reminded me of "The Fog Of War" documentary, it was the perfect excuse to watch it again. That name "Lemay" I guess made me do it.

[Thanks, Bro! g.]
