In this funny but rousing speech, Michael Parenti discusses institutions opposed to Pres. Kennedy and implicated in his murder. Chief is "the National Security State"--persons & entities with power to invade, assassinate, torture, and cause other mayhem in the name of national security. JFK thwarted their goals of war w/ Russia and escalation in Vietnam. By 1963 they had had enough. Also, Gore Vidal on JFK wishing he had more control over the Pentagon. Plus comments by KD & music.
