24. You're basing your remarks on the rightwing propaganda produced....
...after the death of JFK to attempt to blame him for the failure of the Bay of Pigs that was planned by Nixon, Dulles, the JCS and others at least a year prior to JFK taking office. The Bay of Pigs planners had all expected Nixon to be elected president in 1960. Unlike JFK, he would have had no reservations about using the U. S. air and naval assets that had been built into the plan. The Bay of Pigs was NOT JFK's "stumble", but he took responsibility for it as any good leader in his position will do.

In 1962, JFK did not approve "Operation Northwoods", a plan put together by the ultra-right JCS. That hare-brained plan called for the use of American miltary forces to mount "terrorist" attacks on U. S. cities and blame those attacks on Cuba. Makes you think about the events of 911, doesn't it?

As to your belief that we don't know what JFK would have done about Vietnam, again, I draw your attention to the information contained in NSAM 263. People close to JFK have always stated that JFK intended to get the troops out of Vietnam. I also bring to your attention JFK's refusal to send U. S. military advisors to Laos.
