The Men Who Killed Kennedy, a nine part documentary on the John F. Kennedy assassination by Nigel Turner, censored by the History Channel under pressure from the Lyndon Johnson estate. It is by far the best researched and irrefutable authority on the events leading up the killing, those responsible, and what it meant for America.
You are listening to some of the air traffic conversations which took place throughout the afternoon of November 22, 1963. The White House Situation Room, code-named Crown, is providing updated information from the press ticker to the president's air crew in Dallas and to the crew of the plane carrying Secretary of State Dean Rusk. (Rusk's plane here is called "Wayside.") The code name "Volunteer" belongs to Lyndon Johnson.
A bronze casket used to transport President Kennedy's body from Dallas to Washington was dropped from a military plane into the ocean two years after he was killed, according to assassination documents. Kermit L. Hall, a member of the now-defunct Assassination Records Review Board, said Friday that documents to be released Tuesday by the National Archives show that the casket was flown several miles off the Maryland-Delaware coast in early 1965 and dumped in an area where the military discards unstable and outdated weapons and ammunition. The reasons for the disposal aren't clear, but it fuels speculation among assassination researchers that it was discarded to hide foul play…
Every element of this game is based on actual events and political realities as they existed between 1963-1973. In painstaking detail, this game teaches players how Lyndon Baines Johnson assumed power by coup and in doing so, examines the national consequences of JFK’s assassination 40 plus years later.
In 1967, Jim Garrison’s case against Clay Shaw wasn’t just about Shaw. Shaw was a way to get to a much larger fish: Johnson. And Johnson knew this. The Garrison case implied Johnson was to blame for Kennedy’s assassination, and the findings in that trial actually helped lead to Johnson’s refusal to run in 1968…despite Shaw’s acquittal. At the time of the assassination and until his death, Johnson was represented by a law firm partnered by Barr McClellan, the author of “Blood, Money & Power: How L.B.J. Killed J.F.K.”. So in terms of credibility, you can’t get a better source: the very lawyers who defended Johnson against accusations of complicity. An interesting quote by the author, Barr McClellan: “When asked if he was concerned for the safety of his twin sons, he said: ‘The Democrats are pretty much out of power, really, in the state of Texas. So…they’re in good shape.'” (Barr McClellan is father of the present White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan)
