Retrospective audio and contemporary commentary on the killing of John F. Kennedy 22 Nov. 1963, Dallas, TX.

While most all that is thought provoking; including the recent PBS "Nova Cold Case" on JFK detailing latest forensic science, many "unknowables" still persist around who was Lee Harvey Oswald.

1st of a two part "Secular Sunday" series on JFK's assassination.

Unwelcome Guests #517 program summary:

This week's show is dedicated to James Douglass. His talk centers on the assassination of JFK, and it retells the Kennedy presidency with some of the backstage manipulations from down memory hole. He sets the scene by recounting Thomas Merton's prediction that, if Kennedy could turn towards the good, he would be assassinated by "the unspeakable". We look at Kennedy's close collaboration with his supposed adversary, Khrushchev to avert war, and explore a parallel with WW1. We listen to a section of Kennedy's most important speech, in which he finally stepped over the line by unilaterally announcing a US nuclear test ban treaty, and chronicle how he worked for world peace, until he we assassinated by the US security state. We conclude by looking at the implications for the 21st century, exploring a parallel with Martin Luther King and hear an afterword by Bill Hicks.
