“Mankind must put an end to war before war puts an end to mankind.”
~ John F. Kennedy
By Catherine Austin Fitts
Former CIA Director George H. W. Bush was quoted recently as saying “Americans can’t handle the truth.” We disagree. The Solari Report team knows you can handle the truth. In our next Solari Report, we offer you a powerful discussion with one of the most courageous truth-tellers in our midst as he explains one of the most important truths to help you understand how the world works today.
David Talbot is the founder, former CEO and editor-in-chief of Salon magazine. Since leaving Salon, he has continued writing and publishing most notably on the Kennedy administration and assassination. His latest book, The Devil’s Chessboard, a biography of CIA Director Allen Dulles, was published in 2015, seven years after Talbot published Brothers: The Hidden History of the Kennedy Years.
Who arranged the assassination of John F. Kennedy in Dallas in 1963? Was it a lone gunman? Was it the Russians? Was it Fidel Castro? How about the Mob? Every lame explanation of that day has ultimately failed.
It was the Establishment that killed Kennedy — with Allen Dulles and the CIA at the very heart of organizing, executing and covering up the assassination. The conspiracy involved the full breadth of the “deep state” — segments of the military, the FBI, the Secret Service (and their boss, the Secretary of the Treasury) and the banking and investment centers in New York and Boston. It was financed with taxpayers resources. The America people picked up the bill.
Once you digest the facts that Talbot lays out, you will never look at the US Establishment in quite the same way. Indeed, I asked one of my most astute allies to read the book. Weeks after finishing it he remarked, “You know, I look at the world differently now.” To which I responded, “Why, you already knew that the Establishment killed Kennedy.” He replied, “It is one thing to believe it. It is quite another to finally learn the facts.”
In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review The Good Shepard, a fictional account of the birth and growth of CIA counterintelligence. It tells the story of the culture and mentality that fostered the covert side of our world.
