Bloomberg asked Donald Trump the wrong JFK question

I can understand why David Sirota and his retweeters are impatient about the attention to Trump. Among the issues facing the United States of America in the 2016 presidential election–the broken immigration system, extreme inequality, endless wars, out-of-control gun violence, and the assault on voting rights– the question of who perpetrated one homicide in Dallas 52 years ago may seems trivial, far-fetched, and perversely beside the point.

It isn’t.

The fact that serious news reporters from Bloomberg asked the most popular Republican presidential candidate for his views on the subject is proof. The question of who was responsible for the tragic events of 1963 remains very much alive in American culture.

The Bloomberg reporters asked the wrong question. The JFK question is less about what Oswald did in 1963 than about what we (the American people, their elected representatives, and the next president) are going to do in 2016 Talking about Oswald can be a way of avoiding the real, contemporary issues that JFK’s unsolved assassination never ceases to raise.

The JFK issue in 2016 is about accountability, transparency, and secrecy–about whether the national security agencies of the U.S. government can be held accountable by the elected representatives of the people. The JFK question has again worked its way into a presidential campaign because the memory of JFK’s murder has not faded and doubts about the ability of the people to check these agencies are so pervasive. And for good reason.

The U.S. government retains at least, 3,600 documents about JFK’ assassination that have never been seen by the public. These files, scheduled for release in October 2017, include:

–records of the operations of senior CIA officers who are known to have been involved in assassination conspiracies;

–records of CIA undercover officers who implicated themselves in Kennedy’s assassination;

–CIA officers who knew about the politics, travels and foreign contacts of Lee Oswald before JFK was killed.

See my rundown of Top 7 JFK Files the CIA still keeps secret, and Politico’s Bryan Bender on Why the last of the JFK records could embarrass the CIA.

For these records to remain secret 25 years after Congress unanimously passed  the JFK Records Act  mandating the “immediate” release of all of the government’s assassination-related records is proof positive of the impotence of the elected government compared to the national security agencies. Whatever his views on the perennial conspiracy question, I hope Donald Trump will continue to address to the JFK issue in the 2016 campaign

Sirota is right about one thing. The really pressing question in 2016 isn’t “Did Oswald act alone?” The JFK question for 2016 presidential candidates is,

“Will you ensure the October 2017 release of all information which might shed light on the JFK assassination?”

    “Asked by Heilemann whether he’s an “Old Testament guy or a New Testament guy,” Trump said he had no preference.

    “Probably equal. I think it’s just an incredible, the whole Bible is incredible,” he said.

    One more time, the truth manages to escape, somehow.

    • It happened to Nixon (“The greatest hoax that has ever been perpetrated”)

    • It happened to O’Reilly (See Morley on CNN: “This is not between him and me, this is between him and himself”)

    • It happened to Richard Helms (“We have an agent using the covert name ‘Maurice Bishop'”), during a Congress deposition.

    1. THE GREATEST “HOAX ” PERPATRATED WAS THE ILLUSION OF JFK PRESIDENCY AND DEATH. BY REPUBLICANS…. ITS MIRRORED AFTER ALICE IN WONDERLAND…

  4. Sirota’s question reflects an interest from the MSM in the JFK case.
    Why? Just a titillating subject for publicity? Or a true interest in the Historical Truth.

    1. OCT 2017, JFK ASSINATION WAS BASED ON ALICE IN WONDERLAND…. IF YOUR READING THIS FILE, CENTRAL TOOK CONTROL OF U.S.A.

  5. It’s always interesting to see which subjects are considered “serious” and which are not. Presumably David Sirota wouldn’t object if Trump were being asked about, say, the background of the 14th Amendment, the origins of Social Security, the diplomacy that led to the Vietnam War, or any number of other events that took place before Kennedy’s murder yet are still considered relevant and worthy of discussion.

    Sirota’s remark reflects an unfortunate development among the establishment left in America, which by and large treats President Kennedy’s legacy with contempt. It may seem counterintuitive to reject the legacy of the most popular president of the last 60 years, as well as the last president who pursued a progressive, far-sighted policy both at home and (fitfully) abroad, but rejecting JFK seems to be a signal of supposed “seriousness” among certain leftists, a sign that someone is too grown-up and sophisticated to admire a handsome and charismatic president. (The same left-wingers often express a perverse admiration for Nixon, citing some of his relatively progressive domestic achievements.) Noam Chomsky has spent hundreds of thousands of words attempting to shut down any interest in JFK at all, whether by lying about his record, likening his admirers to members of “millenarian movements,” or suggesting that his politics were not significantly different from those of Ross Perot. Lack of real interest in Kennedy’s murder follows naturally from a lack of real interest in Kennedy himself.
