Subject: November 22, 1963 - the coup d'etat against Kennedy - 
             beware the military industrial complex

42 years ago, the United States of America had a military
coup d'etat -- an event that most people chose not to see
(a society of "not see's").

President Kennedy was removed after changing his mind on
the Cold War.  He refused to invade Cuba during the Bay of
Pigs debacle, refusing to start nuclear war during the
Cuban Missile Crisis (even though his military advisors
were demanding it), stopped atmospheric nuclear testing
and began the process to withdraw troops from Vietnam.

In his farewell address to the nation, President
Eisenhower warned that we should beware the unchecked
power of the military-industrial complex.   This speech is
one of the greatest in American history, and prescient in
understanding what was coming.   Now, in 2005, the future
that Eisenhower warned about is the content of the daily

The removal of Kennedy (and later, of his brother on the
threshold of his victory in the Presidential campaign) led
to the escalation of the Vietnam war, Watergate, the 1980
"October Surprise," the Iran-Contra scandals, BCCI, the
invasion of Panama, Desert Storm (1991 war on Iraq),
allowing the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center,
Oklahoma City, the stolen election in Florida in 2000,
9/11 and the anthrax attacks on the Democrats and the
media, the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, and the
stolen 2004 Presidential election (to cite a few of the
many scandals since 1963).

If our society is going to shift course to use our
resources for our survival -- instead of military
dominance -- we will have to convert the military budget
toward peaceful purposes.   A key part of the
understanding needed to shift course is an honest
discussion of the events in Dallas 42 years ago today --
and how those events led to the permanent warfare national
security state.

    "This conjunction of an immense military establishment and
    a large arms industry is new in the American experience
    ... In the councils of government, we must guard against
    the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought
    or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The
    potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power
    exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of
    this combination endanger our liberties or democratic
    -- President Dwight Eisenhower, farewell speech to the
    nation, January 17, 1961
    "Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every
    rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from
    those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and
    are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money
    alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the
    genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This
    is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the
    clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron."
    -- Dwight Eisenhower, April 16, 1953
    "I like to believe that people in the long run are going
    to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed,
    I think that people want peace so much that one of these
    days governments had better get out of the way and let
    them have it."
    -- Dwight D. Eisenhower
    "Should any political party attempt to abolish social
    security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws
    and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again
    in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group,
    of course, that believes you can do these things. Among
    them are H. L. Hunt (you possibly know his background), a
    few other Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional
    politician or business man from other areas. Their number
    is negligible and they are stupid."
    -- Dwight D. Eisenhower in a letter to his brother Edgar,
    November 8, 1954


JFK 11/22/1963

Official Story

The Warren Commission report claimed that Lee Harvey
Oswald was the lone gunman who killed President Kennedy.
This claim is predicated on the "single bullet theory"
created by Commission attorney Arlen Specter (a theory
that must be true for the official story to be correct).

Limited Hang Out

The fall-back story suggests that the mafia and/or
anti-Castro Cubans were responsible. A variation on this
theme is that the Warren Commission had to coverup the
involvement of Castro's Cuba and the Soviet Union, and
therefore the coverup prevented a nuclear war between the
US and the USSR (since the American public would have
demanded revenge).

Best Evidence

To explain the Kennedy assassination, one must ask: Who
had the power to change the motorcade route (to bring it
near the Texas Book Depository and the "grassy knoll")?
Who had the power to cover up the crime? Who benefitted?
President Kennedy had changed his mind on the Cold War,
had stopped nuclear testing in the atmosphere, and signed
an order to start withdrawing troops from Vietnam. Kennedy
promised to shatter the CIA into a thousand pieces, and
the CIA shattered Kennedy into a thousand pieces. The
assassination was a coup d'etat against democracy.

Distracting Disinformation

    "The 9/11 Truth Movement gives one insight why the term
    'conspiracy theorist' came to be shorthand for
    'discredited whacko' in the invisible guidebook of
    mainstream media. "Suddenly, it's not hard to understand
    why the obvious anomalies in the JFK assassination never
    received proper attention in accepted media channels.
    "If you have just as many nutty theories about the driver
    of the limo turning around and shooting JFK as you have
    honest scientific inquiries about the real probability of
    multiple shooters, the wheat drowns in the chaff."
    -- Sander Hicks, author of "The Big Wedding"

Jim Garrison's autobiography "On the trail of the Assassins"
Garrison conducted the only prosecution of a conspirator
in the Kennedy assassination (which was ultimately
unsuccessful).  His autobiography is a fascinating expose
of how the coup was conducted, who benefitted, who covered
it up, and how the lone prosecution was sabotaged by
covert interests and the media.  Oliver Stone's famous
film "JFK" is based on Garrison's story.

Col. Fletcher Prouty was the liaison from the Pentagon to
the CIA when the assassination happened.   He resigned
from the military afterwards, and wrote two books and
numerous articles -- which are archived at this website.

the CIA never operates without presidential authority? If
so, you need to peruse these archives and find out what

The Man Who Wasn't There
by Daniel Brandt

About the time that my two colleagues plotted a trajectory
toward the Dallas symposium, I was relieved that PIR's
telephone had stopped ringing, and there was some light at
the other end of the TV specials. Yet another media
feeding frenzy during yet another assassination
anniversary. "I hope I'm not around for the 50th," I told
researcher Scott Malone when he called a few weeks earlier
to check on something or other that I've since happily

After Peter Dale Scott's exhausting "Deep Politics and the
Death of JFK," I needed a rest before starting on the
other worthwhile 1993 JFK book, Gaeton Fonzi's "The Last
Investigation." By now I've only a vague idea of the
number of JFK books in NameBase, but the notion that it's
enough already is increasingly distinct. Fortunately
Fonzi's book was easy reading, and early on a zinger
perked me up. Fonzi describes a visit to Vince Salandria
in 1975, the earliest assassination researcher who at one
time was a mentor to many starting out in the field:

"I'm afraid we were misled," Salandria said sadly. "All
the critics, myself included, were misled very early. I
see that now. We spent too much time and effort
microanalyzing the details of the assassination when all
the time it was obvious, it was blatantly obvious that it
was a conspiracy. Don't you think that the men who killed
Kennedy had the means to do it in the most sophisticated
and subtle way? They chose not to. Instead, they picked
the shooting gallery that was Dealey Plaza and did it in
the most barbarous and openly arrogant manner. The cover
story was transparent and designed not to hold, to fall
apart at the slightest scrutiny.... We must face that fact
-- and not waste any more time microanalyzing the
evidence. That's exactly what they want us to do....
They'll keep you very, very busy and, eventually, they'll
wear you down." (p. 29)

The name Vince Salandria was not familiar to me; I knew
only that he had assisted in the Garrison investigation.
Fonzie mentions that Salandria has never written a book,
never capitalized on his research, and by 1975 had faded
into the background. I found an address for Salandria and
wrote a letter explaining that I thought his perspective
deserved a wider audience. He graciously sent 60
photocopied pages of articles he had written from
1964-1977, and mentioned in his cover letter that "I still
feel that shifting the analysis from a micro to a macro
approach is essential to freeing the bona fide critics
from a quagmire."

Half of the copies were of articles he wrote from
1964-1966, by way of showing, as he described in his
letter, that "I was perhaps the earliest person to attack
the Warren Report microanalytically." This isn't a boast,
it's a confession. By December 1971 he described himself
as "among the earliest and GUILTIEST of the researchers in
my protracted analyses of the shots, trajectories and
wounds of the assassination.... While the researchers have
involved themselves in consuming preoccupation with the
microanalytic searching for facts of how the assassination
was accomplished, there has been almost no systematic
thinking on why President Kennedy was killed."

In this article and another written in 1977, Salandria
looks at the assassination with a fresh set of
assumptions. He borrows from his friend Professor Thomas
Katen, who characterized the Warren Report as a
"transparent conspiracy" rather than a cover-up. The
deeper you look into the evidence, the clearer it becomes.
The clues are buried, diffused, and time-released so that
those who look hardest become the most fragmented and
demoralized. And savvy political leaders, who might
normally feel that something can be done, are the very
ones who get the message most clearly: "The cryptocracy is
in control, so go along if you expect to get along." Then
there are those who need to deny, or refuse to see, or
just enjoy grotesque minutiae -- for them, bread and
circuses and murder mysteries are sufficiently harmless.

After talking with Salandria in 1975, Fonzi flew back to
Miami. "I didn't quite grasp exactly what he was talking
about, but I had the uneasy feeling he was advancing some
awesomely frightening theories. Then it crossed my mind
that, perhaps this time for sure, Salandria was crazy." By
1993, of course, Fonzi is much more concerned that his
friend ISN'T crazy.

I instinctively refused when my colleagues urged me to
attend the 30th anniversary symposium with them. But it
wasn't until I heard from the Warren Commission's first
micro-critic, the man who stopped being there sometime
around the 8th anniversary, that I began to understand
