James Douglass is the author of a powerful and meticulously documented new book that brings to the fore the central focus of Kennedy's presidency. This focus was his determination to pursue Peace, with Khrushchev, Castro and in Vietnam and he stood isolated in the Security State in which he operated. It is a focus that has been obscured by official histories and only now can be fully told. It is this focus that ultimately cost him his life by the agencies within the very government he was president of.
Host Joe Uris brings a variety of topics to the table today, including the controversial LNG Terminals in Oregon, the Presidential Race, and the Columbia River Crossing. Our conservative friend James is declared KBOO's official Rush [Limbaugh] Reporter, inspiring some listener comments on the place of inflammatory Hate Speech and death threats on the public air waves.
