“40 million Americans…”

“…we’ve got to take this out of the arena where they’re testifying that Khrushchev and Castro did this and did that and kick us into a war that can kill 40 million Americans in an hour…”

– President Johnson, telling Senator Richard Russell why he has been named to the Warren Commission.

  1. LBJ used this same “the world is going to blow up in a nuclear holocaust” technique with Earl Warren, too. In fact, I think that is how LBJ manipulated many insiders into going along with the cover up: blame on the Russians or Fidel Castro and then say we have to cover this thing up or 40 million will die. Of course, you know I think Lyndon Johnson was at the epicenter of the JFK assassination.

    “Warren told me he wouldn’t do it under any circumstances…He came down here and told me no, twice. And I just pulled out what (FBI director) Hoover told me about a little incident in Mexico City…and he started crying and he said, “I won’t turn
    you down. I’ll just do whatever you say.”
