Inside the Plot to Kill J.F.K. [Link]

From David Talbot at Salon:

To Morales, Kennedy was “that no good son of a bitch motherfucker” who was responsible for the deaths of the men he had trained for the Bay of Pigs mission. “We took care of that son of a bitch, didn’t we?” Morales told his attorney, Robert Walton, in 1973, after an evening of drinking loosened the CIA hit man’s tongue. It was one more confession that the media ignored, even after it was reported by one of their own, Gaeton Fonzi, a Philadelphia investigative journalist who, after going to work for the House Select Committee on Assassinations, unearthed some of the most important information related to the Kennedy case.

There's so much here that's scary but the scariest part is that it was a stepping stone toward the America we have now and very few people know what kind of America we actually have now. I think Eisenhower knew what was coming for us.

I sure do hate feeling like a kook.
