You have to admit, the first time you hear it, it does sound highly suspicious.
Well it depends really.
There's 2 ways of viewing this speech. We can watch the edited down version, which is the most popular one out there and tries to make it seem like
JFK is talking about Secret Societies - Which yes, even I admit is very convincing. Or, we can do the right thing and we can observe the full speech
but with doing that it becomes much more clear he's actually talking about issues related to the cold war thus there is no longer any "suspicion."
One has to wonder where this speech/video origanally came and what was the purpise of making itl
He did his speech at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, New York City on April 27, 1961 and he was addressing the press at the time - Thus why the name of the
speech is often referred to as
"The President and the Press.
" In a summary he was asking the press for more "official secrecy", and to treat the situation with
the Soviet Union, in regards to how they reported news, as if this was a real war - In other words hold back some secrets and gain a bit of an edge.
He asked that so incidents like the Bay of Pigs for example
don't happen again, this
incident occurring a very short while before the speech.
I might write my own thread on this sometime in the week..
