- Castro had NO
motivation to murder JFK. My reasoning
in that regard is based on
interviews I have conducted with persons in
a position to know the
details of JFK's (behind the scenes) CUBAN policy.
- In those years, it was
politically suicidal for any public
figure to openly suggest any
non-agressive option to dealing with Communism.
war" dictated the rules of engagement - and those rules
primarily based on the pontifications of those in the John Foster
Dulles camp. Dean Rusk, a J.F. Dulles protege, was incredibly silent
a period when he was considered an expert on China by his
the State Department. Rusk, a Rhoades Scholar, was the
of State for the Far East, a position that was
called "the suicide
seat" during those years, yet Rusk
VOLUNTEERED for the position;
VOLUNTEERED to take a demotion from his
current position of Deputy Undersecretary.
-- But by that time the
careers of many of the real "China Experts"
Marshall, Kennan, Bohlen, Clubb, Service, et al, had been ruined.
- Even the formidable,
and formerly "untouchable"
Dean Acheson was forever tarnished
by the fall of China to Communism.
Later, many of the best experts on
China were described by Richard Nixon
as graduates of "Dean
Acheson's College for the Cowardly Containment
- But not DEAN RUSK.
- RUSK assumed the position of Assisstant Secretary (Far
East) after China fell, thus escaping the China debacle unscathed... It
was a fait accompli mostly because he did not participate in formulating
policy, criticizing policy, or publically displaying an awareness of that
doomed policy, in very much the same manner that he would later embrace
as Secretary of State during Vietnam, attempting to project the appearance
of having been "in no way involved ..."
- The reputation and career of
John Patton Davies (arguably
the VERY BEST expert on China) was all but
ruined by those in the State
Department and elsewhere, who blamed the
fall of China to Communism, on
the "failure of the U.S. to
properly contain it" under the policies
of the Democratic [Truman]
- Most people don't realize that Allen Dulles' brother,
Foster Dulles, was the Chairman of the ROCKEFELLER FOUNDATION during
the TRUMAN administration and that Dean Acheson, as Secretary of State
was the prime architect of that administration's policy on South East
with Dean Rusk as his principal Deputy for Asia. Together, they
the war in Vietnam at the end of WWII and the beginning of
the end of a
Democrat in the White House.
- By 1952, upon Republican
candidate Eisenhower's election
to the Presidency, John Foster Dulles
would be leaving his position as
the Chairman of the Rockefeller
Foundation to accept the position of Eisenhower's
Secretary of State.
But, he needed to fill the position for ROCKEFELLER
that he would be
vacating. And he did just that.
- So, when Ike became President, Nixon became
John Foster Dulles became Secretary of State, Allen
Dulles became Director
of Central Intelligence, and who became the
Chairman of the ROCKEFELLER
Foundation, you ask?
- Dean Rusk.
- Eight years later, JFK defeated
Vice President NIxon
to become the 35th President, and Dean Rusk, like
John Foster Dulles before
him, vacated the Chairmanship of the
ROCKEFELLER Foundation, and became
Kennedy's Secretary of
- Here's a rare memo from Richard Helms to National Security
Advisor, McGeorge Bundy, confirming the JFK plan to re-establish relations
(and much more) with Castro's Cuba. JFK realized, as he expressed in his
speech at the American University, that the only sound "deal"
between the US and the Communists that would insure a true and lasting
peace, NOT a Pax Americana, where American weapons of war were used to
inflict "our peace" on nations around the globe. Rather, a true
peace would necessarily depend on the deal's being in the Communist's best
interest, as well as our own best interest. He said that the only
agreements reached between nations were those agreements,
AND ONLY those
agreements, which served that nations own self
- That is the type of "language" that get's a
killed by those in the business of WAR, who depend on the escalation
fear in the hearts of the taxpayers who will fund this great
Complex of which we were warned against by Dwight
D. Eisenhower in his
parting address to the nation. "We must guard
against undue influence,
whether sought or unsought, by the vast
Military/ Industrial Complex..."
