Why JFK’s Death Still Matters

As we are approaching this month the 50th anniversary of the assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States of America, Lars Schall talked with two outstanding researchers related to that matter, Peter Dale Scott from the U.S. and Mathias Broeckers from Germany. The 50 minutes long audio discussion focused on the essential importance to distinguish between deep politics / deep state events and “ordinary” conspiracies.

In addition to the following audio interview with Peter Dale Scott (“Deep Politics and the Death of JFK”) and Mathias Broeckers (“JFK: Coup d’Etat in America“), I would like to provide five more links with regards to points made in the interview you’re about to hear:

a) The web site dedicated to the book / movie “Brothers: The Hidden History of The Kennedy Years” by David Talbot – see here.

b) An essay entitled “Exit Strategy,” written by distinguished economist James K. Galbraith regarding the question: “What, at the moment of his death, was John F. Kennedy’s policy toward Vietnam?” – see here.

c) The speech that Kennedy gave on June 10, 1963 at American University, Washington DC, “A Strategy of Peace” – see here and here.

d) The story by NPR on T. Jeremy Gunn of the Assassination Records Review Board, „Inconsistencies Haunt Official Record Of Kennedy’s Death“ – see here.

Why JFK’s Death Still Matters

Mathias Broeckers, born 1954, is a German investigative journalist and the author of more than ten books, most of them related to the topics of drugs, terrorism and deep politics. He works for the daily German newspaper TAZ and the webzine Telepolis. His latest book, “JFK: Staatsstreich in Amerika” (“JFK: Coup d’Etat in America“), was published this August at Westend Verlag in Frankfurt, Germany.

Peter Dale Scott, one of the most perceptive and provocative political-historical thinkers of our time, is a former Canadian diplomat and English Professor at the University of California, Berkeley. The son of noted Canadian poet and constitutional lawyer F.R. Scott and painter Marian Dale Scott, who was born in Montreal, Canada on January 11th, 1929, has attracted a lot of attention throughout the years for his transparent and heavily-footnoted political writings.

Scott studied at McGill University, Montreal and University College, Oxford. His dissertation was written on “The Social and Political Ideas of T.S. Eliot.“ He first taught at Sedbergh School and McGill University. Afterwards he joined the Canadian Department of External Affairs (1957-1961) and the Canadian Embassy in Warsaw, Poland (1959-1961). Returning to academic life Peter Dale Scott taught at the University of California for over thirty years, before he retired from the UC Berkeley faculty in 1994.

His prose books include:

The War Conspiracy (1972)
The Assassinations: Dallas and Beyond (in collaboration, 1976)
Crime and Cover-Up: The CIA, the Mafia, and the Dallas-Watergate Connection (1977)
Introduction to Henrik Kruger’s The Great Heroin Coup: Drugs, Intelligence, & International Fascism (1980)
The Iran-Contra Connection (in collaboration, 1987)
Cocaine Politics: Drugs, Armies, and the CIA in Central America (in collaboration, 1991, 1998)
Deep Politics and the Death of JFK (1993, 1996)
Deep Politics Two: Essays on Oswald, Mexico, and Cuba (1995, 2007)
Drugs, Oil and War (2003)
The Road to 9/11: Wealth, Empire and the Future of America (September 2007)
The War Conspiracy: JFK, 911, and the Deep Politics of War (2008 reissue and expansion of the 1972 edition)
American War Machine: Deep Politics, the CIA Global Drug Connection, and the Road to Afghanistan (2010)

His chief poetry books are the three volumes of his trilogy “Seculum“:

Coming to Jakarta: A Poem About Terror (1989)
Listening to the Candle: A Poem on Impulse (1992)
Minding the Darkness: A Poem for the Year 2000 (2000)

In addition he has published:

Crossing Borders: Selected Shorter Poems (1994)
Mosaic Orpheus (2009)

In his prose books, Scott is particularly interested in examining “Deep Politics.“ He defines “Deep Politics“ this way: “All those political practices and arrangements, deliberate or not, that are usually repressed in public discourse rather than acknowleged.“

    Thank you for this interview. I would love to hear more from these men.

    The propaganda blitz by the media is in full force here in the states. A program on PBS last night(Cold Case JFK) was very convincing that Oswald was the murderer. Only problem… they left out many pertinent details. One was addressed in this interview. The photographs used in the analysis were not the photos taken by the photographers at the scene in 1963. I am referring to the autopsy photos.

    Interesting how a coverup needs only to omit information to be effective.

    When people of immense power, the powers that shouldn’t be, want to cover up the past they have so many avenues at their disposal. Thank goodness I found this interview.

    Thank you again!

    Thank you. Seize the records of Sullivan & Cromwell.

    Thanks for posting

    The disinformation blitz from the MSM is breathtaking… proving the control is absolute!

    For those interested, the first and best documented examination of the truth… Mark Lane’s documentary (actually a series of filmed research interviews with witnesses for his book of the same name) Rush To Judgement…
