JFK Turned to Peace and Was Assassinated

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:

Researchers who have investigated the assassination of President John F. Kennedy for 30 or more years have concluded that he was murdered by a conspiracy of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the CIA, and the Secret Service. See for example, JFK And The Unspeakable by James W. Douglass. Shortly before he was murdered, President John F. Kennedy gave an extraordinary speech at American University. In the speech he came out against continuation of the Cold War that risked all life on earth for the benefit of the profits of the military-security complex and the budgets and power of the Pentagon and CIA.

President Kennedy was already marked for assassination. He rejected the Joint Chiefs’ belligerence toward the Soviet Union and their belief that nuclear war could be won. He rejected Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Lemnitzer’s “Operation Northwoods,” a plan to carry out false flag terror attacks on Americans and blame Castro in order to create support for a US invasion of Cuba. He rejected US Air Force support for the CIA’s Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba. He worked outside of channels with Khrushchev to defuse the Cuban Missile Crisis. The paranoid anti-communists who controlled US military and security forces concluded that President Kennedy did not serve their career interests and was soft on communism and thereby unable to stand up to the Soviet Union. They viewed Kennedy as a threat to US national security that needed to be removed.

A new peace movement, NoWar2016 has utilized part of President Kennedy’s speech to build interest in its September 23-25 conference at American University. David Swanson points out the difference between President Kennedy’s approach to the Soviet Union and Washington’s approach to Russia today. There was hope in Kennedy’s approach. There is no hope in the approach today.

Listen to Kennedy’s speech and despair that such brilliant and fearless leadership was snuffed out by the military-security complex.

Like almost all Americans at the time, Senator John F. Kennedy regarded the Soviet Union as a threatening adversary. He campaigned for the presidency on “the missile gap,” the presumption of which was that the Soviets were gaining military supremacy over the US. But once in the Oval Office, Kennedy witnessed the extreme risks that US military leadership was willing to impose on American lives in behalf of a war than no one needed. He realized that the US military-security complex was as great a threat to life as the Soviets. He understood that tensions between the two nuclear powers had to be defused, not increased. Once reelected, he intended to cease the US intervention in Vietnam and to discipline the CIA. Kennedy’s approach was not acceptable to the military-security complex, and he was eliminated.

    The CIA has its fingerprints ALL over the JFK Assassination.

    Read the comments. How many Americans today, are aware that Prescott Bush financed/backed Richard M. (“Tricky Dick”) Nixon, vs. John Fitzgerald Kennedy in 1960? Of course, Prescott Bush also financed Hitler’s rise to power in Germany. Also, how many Americans are aware that Prescott Bush’s son, George H.W. Bush, was in the CIA, and in Dallas, on Nov. 22, 1963? Or, that George H.W. Bush became the DIRECTOR of the CIA (from 1976 to 1977), PRECISELY during the two-year period, when the HSCA (House Select Committee on Assassinations) “re-opened” the “investigation” into the JFK Assassination, and during the time when both Johnny Roselli (East Coast Mafia contact for the CIA) AND George de Mohrenschildt (Oswald’s CIA-handler) were called to testify before the HSCA, and both were found DEAD, before they could testify.
