JFK, Obama, and the coming end of the Cuba embargo

In a new piece JFK and the Cuban Embargo, Jacob Hornberger connects Obama’s Cuba diplomacy to JFK’s Cuba diplomacy of 50 years ago:

“Already, we’re hearing that President Obama is a traitor, that he is surrendering America to Fidel Castro and the communists, and betraying the Cuban people and the cause of freedom and democracy for wanting to lift the 54-year-old Cold War-era U.S. embargo against Cuba.”

“That is precisely the way that the national-security establishment felt about Kennedy and actually much worse.”

    Jeff,

    I’ve been wondering if you or any of your readers could say when was the last death of a witness who knew too much? What was the year and who was the victim? Are any of the conspirators still living and ordering such hits? Thanks.

    Folks can’t even agree on who was responsible for the assassination. No one has ever been convicted of even threatening a witness, let alone killing one. Jack Ruby was convicted of shooting the patsy, not a witness. If the youngest conspirator was 18 on 11/22/63, he’d only be 69 now. This case isn’t “closed” yet. There are many more secrets to be revealed. If Americans continue to buy into the Warren Report however it might as well be. It’s a great question and if it could be answered to the satisfaction of one and all – the knowledge would be priceless. Johnson and his fellow conspirators covered their tracks well. What boggles my mind is the number of citizens who think they can determine who the assassin was by reading the daily newspaper and listening to network news. The CIA, FBI and CBS were quite devious in managing to convince citizens that an American patriot, first-class intelligence operative, United States Marine and trusting American citizen and volunteer was the triggerman. Puhlllease!!! Folks need to learn how to read and do their own research. If you rely on the mainstream media to do your investigating for you then you’re being grotesquely under-served.

    Mike, I’m not sure if you’re being sarcastic or not? Following the death of JFK there was a silly amount of people killed either through murder/suicide or certainly suspicious. I don’t recall the exact number but I recall the tally being in excess of 80. The odds of all these people being killed were calculated by an English newspaper as being something like 1 in a 100 trillion chance of happening. Some died in single car accidents, others suicide despite circumstances being very suspicious and other brutally murdered. If you do your research you’ll see all this for yourself.
    I believe the reason this cons

    I believe the reason this conspiracy lives on and why the truth remains suppressed is quite simple; it wasn’t just a few individuals but organisations involved and those same organisations are still in action today and we’ve heard in the last couple weeks that the main group I believe responsible; the CIA are still functioning beyond their remit and committing brutal illegal acts….52 years later!!! Nothing has changed since 63 in that respect. Infact it’s become worse because the CIA has proven it can’t be removed or challenged. It will remove whatever and whoever threatens it.
    JFK “ill smash them (CIA), into a thousand pieces and throw them to the wind”.

    The Cuban anti-Castro faction has always found a traitor among the U.S. Presidents, particularly JFK in times of war and now Obama in times of peace, since the only hope for solving the so-called Cuban problem is not the Cuban people, but the U.S. government.

    “That is precisely the way that the national-security establishment felt about Kennedy and actually much worse.”

    It is my opinion that this is mere theater, a burlesque of the Hegelian Dialectic. Obama has been the perfect puppet for Wall Street, which is the connection to the real power behind the throne.
    That power is the globalist elite headed by the international banking cabal.
