Cold War Origins of the CIA Holocaust

A new book by James W. Douglass [JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters] addresses an “an evil whose depth and deceit seemed to go beyond the capacity of words to describe.” A few events, many of them very recent, qualify to be so described. The unspeakable “evil” in this case is the assassination of JFK, in fact, a cold-blooded murder in the streets.

That it was a “President” so ignominiously gunned-down is in itself appalling, unspeakable but that it was a President who held out our best hopes to survive as a Democratic, free nation makes it all the more tragic in retrospect.

The assassination succeeded, claims Douglass, because Americans can’t handle the truth. Americans have not faced up to what has happened to our nation or what has become of our dreams of freedom, democracy, equal rights and liberty.

Douglass’ book is not another conspiracy book. Many books, articles, writers, and talk show hosts have proven to my satisfaction and that of millions of Americans that the cold-blooded murder of JFK could not have been anything other than a conspiracy. The “lone nut” theory is subscribed to only by lone nuts and legions of liars. Douglass not only affirms a “conspiracy” but speaks directly to jaded Americans, addressing in the subtitle: “Why He Died and Why It Matters.”

No murder but especially that of JFK can be understood in a vacuum. There is a fateful history leading up to that dreadful day in Dallas, when the United States lost a President, America lost a future, and every American lost the “Yankee” optimism that had made our nation great.

And now… the rest of the story. …..
