... was no 'Soviet threat'. The revisionist historians of the Cold War were right; and those within the American political system- the obvious examples being presidents Kennedy and Carter- who tried to slow/stop the nuclear arms race, were right. But Kennedy was killed (if not by the Pentagon, by one of the politicians, LBJ, who fronted for it on Capitol Hill) and Carter retreated when his talk of nuclear disarmament was rubbished at home and in the Kremlin (where there was Soviet arms lobby nearly as powerful as the one in the US). The 'October Surprise' conspiracy between the Republican Party and the Iranian regime was merely the final nail in ...

32. Historical Notes [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... the western alliance. Examples are his articles on the 1962 cancellation of the US Skybolt missile which was supposed to become the centrepiece of the UK nuclear deterrent, or In the Red's analysis of sterling's problems, or Anatomy of Error (1969), which focused on the debates about Indo-China within the Washington establishment in the period from Eisenhower to LBJ. Thirdly, it has been suggested that he was a MI6 asset. True, the source of this was Izvestia in December 1968. But it was later reported that Henry Kissinger had ordered the tapping of the telephone of a British journalist who was suspected of being an MI6 operative; in 1982 The Press Gazette reported on 3 May ...

33. RIP 'The Fourth Decade & Probe' [Lobster #41 (Summer 2001)]
... . But the neo-liberal system reserves the right to eradicate those who want to change it-- even if they are middle-class or wealthy. I think JFK was in this category. For all his wealth and foreign adventurism, JFK was extremely (politically) liberal. He began much of the civil rights legislation which was seen to completion by LBJ. He was interventionist rather than laissez-faire; he picked fights with the directors of US Steel and with the oil companies. And he was killed in that centre of the oil culture, Dallas, on his way to make a speech at the International Trade Mart.... whose head, in New Orleans, was a man ...

34. Destiny Betrayed, by James DiEugenio (Book review) (Summer 2013) [Lobster #65 Summer 2013) (free)] [Free Issue]
... this meant. It may have had nothing to do with killing JFK. And as we get close to Dealey Plaza, there is nothing linking either the Cubans or the CIA to the events that day in Dallas. The only member of the cast of characters definitely identified around the assassination is Jack Ruby; and while in prison Ruby identified LBJ as the man behind the shooting. Although I disagree with DiEugenio's thesis, this is a really good book, with much new and newish material. Highly recommended. Robin Ramsay ...

... Finally, Kefauver was dumped by the party's northern liberals, led by Hubert Humphrey. Humphrey had first come to public prominence as a gang-busting mayor. Only many years later would it be known how many contributions Meyer Lansky had made to Humphrey's various campaigns. (When Humphrey later took his oath as vice president of the US in 1965 under LBJ, the Bible he swore on was held for him by one of his old patrons, Minneapolis vice lord Fred Gates.) Adlai Stevenson won the nomination and was hammered by Eisenhower the following November. Truman had even vetoed Stevenson's suggestion that Kefauver be placed on the ticket as vice-presidential candidate. Kefauver's reform aspirations died with his political ones ...

36. Things Israeli [Lobster #5 (Aug 1984)]
... .. In other words an (admittedly) fragmented official view of US-Israeli relations. This is not a subject I know too much about, but a couple of things did strike me. On Israeli nuclear development: "Perhaps the most significant development of 1963 for the Israeli nuclear programme, however, occurred on November 22nd... LBJ was sworn in.." (p165) "Kennedy was less than whole-heartedly pro-Israeli." Author Green comments on a Kennedy-Golda Meir exchange that it was "the last time for many, many years in which an American President distinguished for the government of Israel the difference between US and Israeli national interests." (p182) Thus ...

... is no evidence; and (b) that the government supported the US war in Vietnam; and on this the evidence is still ambiguous. It is true that British components of the Anglo-American intelligence and surveillance system, notably some GCHQ bases in the Far East, provided intelligence to the US. But despite a great deal of arm-twisting from LBJ, and despite Wilson's utter dependence on the US at this point for financial assistance to defend the value of the pound, Harold Wilson refused to send even a token force to Vietnam. (Apologists for Maurice Oldfield hint that he was instrumental in keeping the British state out of Vietnam.) The paragraph of Pilger's I have quoted illustrates ...

One to insist that the bulb was altered after it was unscrewed, three tramps to walk across the room an hour later, one to insist LBJ really screwed the bulb in, and one to accuse all the others of being disinformation specialists.

... and so on. Armstrong and Roberts have produced a comprehensive if uncritical A-Z of deaths that usefully supplements and enlarges upon the 'Convenient Deaths' chapter in Jim Marrs' Crossfire (New York: Pocket Books, 1993), pp. 555-66, the fullest account preceeding the present work. But why include names like J. Edgar Hoover, LBJ, John Connally, and others who simply died of old age years later? BROWN, WALT. The J.F.K. Assassination Quiz Book: Test Your Knowledge.

... when he is describing his travels in the region in the 1950s: the CIA was still, more or less, a secret organisation; but a lot of information has been produced since then and his ignorance in the late 1990s when he wrote this is difficult to comprehend or excuse. Crucially, he accepts the received view that JFK and LBJ were the same: he is apparently unaware of JFK's plan to pull the US out of Vietnam. 'Nor is there any reasons to suppose that things would have been any different had Kennedy not been killed, for he was every bit as rigid a Cold Warrior as Johnson.'( p. 188) This simply is not true ...
