Douglas, Stone and Pease discuss ‘JFK and the Unspeakable’
(From the youtube description)
Highlights of a panel discussion with author James Douglass (JFK AND THE UNSPEAKABLE: WHY HE DIED AND WHY IT MATTERS), filmmaker Oliver Stone (JFK) and noted JFK researcher Lisa Pease. Moderated by: Robert Ellsberg.
Recorded live at the Saban Theatre, November 8th (the 50th anniversary of the election of JFK).
At the height of the Cold War, JFK risked committing the greatest crime in human history: starting a nuclear war. Horrified by the specter of nuclear annihilation, Kennedy gradually turned away from his long-held Cold Warrior beliefs and toward a policy of lasting peace. But to the military and intelligence agencies in the U.S., who were committed to winning the Cold War at any cost, Kennedy’s change of heart was a direct threat to their power and influence. Once these dark “Unspeakable” forces recognized that Kennedy’s interests were in opposition to their own, they tagged him as a dangerous traitor, plotted his assassination, and orchestrated the subsequent cover-up.
