Why The Kennedy Assassination Still Matters GreatlySubmitted by kevink on Sat, 03/02/2013 - 12:41
It would be interesting to compile a list of things that the average person would find so much at odds with their conventional beliefs were the truth to be revealed. I don't think the average person thinks much about the JFK assassination. However, imagine the documents that the government has been holding back all these years were revealed and it turned out that there was a heck of a lot more to the story than Lee Harvey Oswald. Imagine if people started reading the memos and stories came out that George HW Bush and the CIA were involved. I know there are probably a lot of people who already think that's the case. But what about the general public? Imagine they were to read this stuff. Wouldn't that at least provide a crack in the "trust the government propaganda" that we always hear? Couldn't that be used in arguments w/ the Piers Morgan's of the world when he tries to convince the public that we don't need our 2nd amendment rights to protect us from all enemies foreign AND domestic?
Well, in November, it's the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination. And if the government is sticking to their "lone nut gunman" story then why in the world would so many documents related to the case still be classified? Public pressure on this issue would be very interesting. It's hard to imagine what the spin would be for not releasing this info.
Keep in mind that Jeb Bush is very possibly going to be a player for the presidential elections in 2016. So the Bush family would definitely not want any JFK info that ties in the Bush family to be released. I doubt they'll ever want this to be released actually. And keep in mind that Marco Rubio is pretty close w/ the Bush family so that could soil his name as well. Of course, if the Bush family is completely innocent then they should have no concerns whatsoever about JFK stuff being released.
But we still have a little over 8 months before the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination. In other words, there's still a little bit of time to pressure the government to release this stuff. Can we DPers push for this? It might be a VERY good use of our time and effort.
