JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters

Kevin Barrett talks with James Douglass, author of "JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters" which Richard Falk, Milbank Professor of International Law Emeritus, Princeton University said "should be required reading for every American citizen" (and Kevin agrees!)

(36:23 Minutes - 10.2 Meg)

Act of State

The author starts the interview talking about reading "An Act of State" and how it impacted him . . . if you would like to research this further, I created a page with audio and video links:

Very interesting how.....

...Prof. Douglass talks about how JFK, Malcom X, and King all made "turning points" and public pronouncements about the importance of Peace shortly before they were hit. Malcom was reaching out to King in the interest of black unity shortly before being killed. JFK was reaching out to Castro and the Soviets and made his American University speech in the summer of '63. King made that (what should be) famous anti-Vietnam war speech a year to the day before his assassination. And RFK falls in the same category with his anti-war stance during his campaign of '68.

Peace just isn't profitable to the military-industrial-complex. All that government spending dries up.

Elective Wars are especially great to the M-I-C when the "deciders" (and the decider's enablers...they know who they are...) send only Other People's Kids (or highly paid mercenaries) to die or be permanently damaged. "Finance" the whole thing through debt (deficit spending)...(cough..devalue the dollar...cough).... so middle America is lulled into looking the other way..... Ah, it's a great time to be a War Profiteer (sarcasm).

You've got to admit these guys are "good" (Rovian-slick)

9/11 Truth ends the 9/11 Wars

Mr. X in "JFK"

The Col. L. Fletcher Prouty character (called Mr. X in the film) ....always worth revisiting....

9/11 Truth ends the 9/11 Wars

Zachary Sklar on Mr. X in "JFK"

Thanks for posting this, altruist. Listen to Zachary Sklar, one of the writers of "JFK", describe that scene here and here.

For more on James+W.+Douglass+go+here and listen here.

Thank you.....

....for digging these interviews up....fascinating....

I highly recommend watching "JFK" with Oliver Stone's commentary on....but I had never heard co-screenwriter Sklar before....interesting background information....thanks again....

BTW, there is an overlapping, to the "Mr. X scene", "alternate ending" included on the Director's Cut DVD of "JFK" that includes some more evidence such as the fact that the CIA's (with Air Force cover) Gen. Ed Lansdale (the basis for "Gen. Y" in the film), the Agency's man in charge of prior overseas coup d'etats in the Philippines and Vietnam, was, tellingly, in Dealey Plaza on 11/22/63 and was photographed next to the infamous "3 Tramps"!

There is some more information and photographs (especially, IMO, about "umbrella man" and "walkie talkie man"...check out how they sit down together and look at the Grassy Knoll while everyone else there runs in that direction!.....) on Lansdale's Wikipedia page:

The 9/11 Truth movement is still waiting on its equivalent of Jim Garrison or William Pepper....but with all the BushCo firings of US prosecutors, the Alabama Gov. Siegelman persecution, the Spitzer case, etc....I'm not overly optimistic we'll get one....

9/11 Truth ends the 9/11 Wars

Mort Sahl

Great point about Seigelman and Spitzer -- Lisa Pease describes 'Government by Blackmail' here.

It is amazing what Jim Garrison and William+Pepper were able to accomplish given all the obstacles they had to overcome. Mort Sahl is another one who deserves mention for throwing away his career to support Jim Garrison:

" Because the evidence developed by District Attorney Garrison indicates that certain people had to take President Kennedy's life in order to control ours..." Mort Sahl

Dick Cavett: I can’t look at Petraeus — his uniform ornamented like a Christmas tree with honors, medals and ribbons — without thinking of the great Mort Sahl at the peak of his brilliance. He talked about meeting General Westmoreland in the Vietnam days. Mort, in a virtuoso display of his uncanny detailed knowledge — and memory — of such things, recited the lengthy list (”Distinguished Service Medal, Croix de Guerre with Chevron, Bronze Star, Pacific Campaign” and on and on), naming each of the half-acre of decorations, medals, ornaments, campaign ribbons and other fripperies festooning the general’s sternum in gaudy display. Finishing the detailed list, Mort observed, “Very impressive!” Adding, “If you’re twelve.”

Yeah....

...I remember hearing Sahl's incisive and topical comedy albums being played in my youth.....to paraphrase Paul Simon: "(Mort Sahl) a nation turns its lonely eyes to you"....

Were that he was still around. He would undoubtedly be making valuable contributions.

9/11 Truth ends the 9/11 Wars

Also Why He Lived and Why It Matters.

Ask not what your country can do for you...........................

On the other hand....

....ask what the country (using the government) can do to you....

Point well taken though.

9/11 Truth ends the 9/11 Wars

We have to clean up the mess behind us

JFK Truth ends the 9/11 Wars
RFK Truth ends the 9/11 Wars
MLK Truth ends the 9/11 Wars

Why JFK was murdered

The NWO boys had to murder him. He wouldn't play their game. At the time we had military advisors in south east Asia. After talking to retired general McArthur he decided to pull all the troops out of south east Asia. There would have been no Viet Nam war He also wante't to break up the CIA. He also wanted the government to issue money and do away with the Federal Reserve. So you see the NWO boys had no choice but to kill him. Same thing with RFK. Had RFK lived it would have been all over for the NWO. 9/11 never would have happened.

And

Bill O'Reilly know this.

He covered JFK assasination in detail prior to crossing over to FAUX news.

"Evidence of Revision" is a 5-DVD, 8 hour long documentary

http://www.wingtv.net/evidenceofrevision.html

CLASSIFIED, CENSORED, & SUPPRESSED

HISTORY MAY BE REVISED EVEN AS IT IS BEING WRITTEN

"Evidence of Revision" is a 5-DVD, 8 hour long documentary series whose purpose is to present the publicly unavailable and even suppressed historical audio, video, and film recordings largely unseen by the American public relating to the assassination of the Kennedy brothers, the little known classified "Black Ops" actually used to intentionally create the massive war in Viet Nam, the CIA "mind control" programs and their involvement in the RFK assassination and the Jonestown massacre and other important truths of our post-modern time.

The U.S. Government's Orwellian "Office of Public Diplomacy" has been in existence in various forms and under various names since World War ONE. The union of American governance and American corporate interests began in Abraham Lincoln's day and the massaging of "public truth" began even before the Roman Empire. The more you know about "real history" versus "official history", the better equipped you are to see behind the lies of our times, even as they are told to you. Some of us knew what was really happening even before the second plane hit the tower.

"Evidence of Revision" sweeps "official truth" into the dustbin of history.

$19.99 plus $3.99 for S&H.
