190. Anytime, Minstrel-san!
Just trying to return a favor owed somewhere, Brother...


And most of our listeners may not know, but the United States went on a red nuclear alert after that assassination. We were facing the risk of a nuclear war. And Earl Warren, in his memoirs, has said that the reason he took the job he did not want of being head of the Warren Commission was because Johnson persuaded him that the rumors that were around presented the risk of nuclear war. If the rumors had just been lying around "in the streets," they would not have presented any risk at all. The problem was that these rumors were being energetically supported and almost forced on the U.S. government by senior U.S. officials at the heart of the government. You could not have done that if Oswald was a "lone nut" pushing books around in the school book depository and nothing more.

And I may say I have just seen a set of the new declassified documents that have been released this year (1993). And the more we see of this matter, we see how many, literally, *tens* of people were looking at every single Oswald document in the CIA and were magnifying, rather than diminishing, the idea that he might be part of an international communist plot.


Gee. Somebody must've really wanted WWIII. Now who do we know who really likes war, besides the Carlyle Group?
