149. National security.
Going from what I believe

The plotters were not just
    Texas oil men
    The Ultra Right
    The Mafia
    Racist Religionist Confederates
    NAZIs
    Rogue CIA
    Communist Martyrs
    The Joint Chiefs

Certainly, there are indications some or all couldve been involved.

How they worked together is beyond what we know.

The people who carried it out were the most powerful people in the country even more powerful than the President.

It had to have been the masters of the national security community the real masters of the universe.

They, I imagine, had become frustrated at the Bay of Pigs, enraged during the Cuban Missile Crisis, and traitors at NSAM 263.

It helps explain how we got to
    Charlie Wilsons War
    The Texas Angle
    Presidential Power
    Ultra Right Wing Nutjobs Inc.
    War Inc

The corruptions of Duke Cunningham, Dusty Foggo and Jack Abramoff arent a series of one-offs. They are systemic.

Calling these turds out today their offspring in power, if not in flesh, helps us in what we have to do.

The times gave us then the right man.
Had Nixon been in office, and the Bay of Pigs would have led to a U.S. invasion.
Perhaps the Soviets would have moved into Berlin.
And, going by what we know now about the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Joint Chiefs would counsel war and the Cabinet wouldve been even more right wing than Kennedys.
JFK kept the peace and the world did not know nuclear war.

Wanted to thank you and your father for telling you about the idea of JFK as an interruption in the status quo, rather than the end of an era. Must bring that era back.


Our nation, planet and humanity really need it.
