    Saw this movie tonight. Very straightforward, academi look with historical documentation on what JFK was up against with the Joint Chiefs, CIA and (which you don’t hear about often) his State Department.

    Lots of hawks left over in State from the Eisenhower years who subverted JFK’s wishes in seeking a negotiated settlement in Vietnam with India as the broker. Why India? Galbraith was the ambassador there that Kennedy trusted to bring about a peace.

    At the top of those in State going against his wishes was Averell Harriman, a man who JFK had trusted but who had actually become a hawk on Vietnam. Stopped the India memo to broker a settlement from ever being sent.

    Another item I think I’ve heard once before, JFK told Bobby “I guess this is the night I should go to theater,’ following the Cuban missile crisis, referring to Lincoln and the many enemies he had now made.

    Also new for me was the children of Norman Cousins, who joined their father as a secret emissary to Kruschev after the missile crisis, saying JFK had told their father how he was truly scared of the US military and its potential to undermine his executive power.

    Definitely worth a view.
