I wholeheartedly and fundamentally disagree with many of the things you've said and you are quite wrong about many things historically. I don't have
the time now to refute it all but I don't really consider it worth it anyway, I've read many of your posts hopechest and the word naive always comes
I know all about the Kennedy administration and the Cold War, I've studied it for years. I never said it started with the CIA and their actions, nor
where they alone guilty of these things. But it is absolutely true that the leadership in the CIA along with military brass tried tricking Kennedy
into a full blown invasion of Cuba after he had changed his opinions on the right course of action. The buck stops with the President, of course. This
is why Kennedy, although surrounded by warmongers, took responsibility for the Bay of Pigs fiasco. Even though it was hardly his fault. Operation 40,
started under the Eisenhower administration and under his guidance, was established by Allen Dulles the Director of Central Intelligence (de facto
head of the CIA). Dulles, Bissell, and Cabbel were forced to resign for a reason. It's long been established that the CIA/military brass ordered the
land invasion of Cuba and set it up to fail, believing Kennedy would then invade. He did not, thank God. Otherwise WWIII may have already been waged.
I'm not saying you can't get nasty. But I disagree that we must break the law, take part in illegal activity, or become a monster ourselves to defeat
such evil. I think that's absurd. Such things perpetuate evil, not destroy it.
And you're d*nm right Reagan knew all about Iran/Contra. Right down to the drug running and illegal smuggling of narcotics into this country.
Keep defending the bad guys. You're quite good at it. Unfortunately it doesn't work on the educated and intellectual.
