Oliver Stone wraps up ’50 Reasons for 50 Years’


In the last installment of this epic and enlightening series, host Len Osanic talks to the director of “America’s Untold History” about JFK’s enemies without reference to the assassination. Rather, Stone compares JFK to his predecessor Dwight Eisenhower and successor Lyndon B. Johnson and explores what an unusual president he was in resisting the pressure for militarization and war.

    I listened to this excellent program over the weekend. Thanks for bringing it here from Black Op Radio.

    Oliver Stone demonstrates to me he grasps the significance of the Kennedy presidency against the background of American officials who wanted war with Cuba or the Soviet Union at any cost.

    The whole program is chilling. For me, the most chilling part is the recounting of how the White House Situation Room, under the command of George McBundy, sent messages to AF 1 and the cabinet plane returning from Hawaii. The messages, sent early to mid-afternoon on 11-22-63, stated that Kennedy had been killed by Lee Harvey Oswald, acting alone; that Oswald was in custody; that there was no conspiracy.

    Shorter McBundy: That’s the official history.

      Who is McBundy? If you can’t even get something as elemental as a name correct how can anybody believe you know the subject or have a rational interpretation?

        I have been reading the posts on this website since almost it’s inception. While I don’t know who you are or what your “Photon” moniker is supposed to mean, I can surmise that your occasional interjections are mostly digs and are meant to inflame and not warranted. This most likely won’t be posted or will be deleted by Jeff, just wanted to speak my mind.

    A great ending to a great series. I do have to disagree with Stone that Hoover wasn’t so bad. Some of his FBI agents did great field work – that is true – but Hoover cherry-picked the parts he would allow the WC to see. And if you’ve read Anthony Summers and other authors on Hoover, you know what a thoroughly dishonest and corrupt person he was.

    It’s fitting that Len Osanic close his ’50 Reasons For 50 Years’ series with Oliver Stone; both have set the bar high in their visual analysis of the history of the public execution of President Kennedy. Len’s YouTube efforts are a directional signal to sincere researchers & would-be film makers on how to work around a media blacklist that excludes them, focusing instead on forcing media propaganda down the public’s throat in regard to JFK’s death & the failure of the US government to prosecute his killers & bring global acceptable closure to his murder.

    For their tireless, unselfish, sincere & dedicated efforts in this truth & transparency crusade Osanic, Stone, YouTube & dozens of researchers, authors & historians around the world deserve our sincerest thanks & gratitude. I proud of them all.

    I’d like to know: Is it ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN (documentable) that the WH Situation Room sent out the LHO information when they did? I’m not saying it didn’t happen; I’m just asking if this is documentable. If it is, it is pretty damning. I’ll bet someone out there will challenge this however. That’s why I’d like to know how verifiable it is.

    The Situation Room’s messages are documented and timestamped in the transcript of the Andrews communication with AF1 which is taped, as well as Andrews communications with other sources desiring to be connected to AF1 such as the Congressional aircraft out over the Pacific. See Bill Kelley’s fine AF1 work on his blog:

    However, the Situation Room, very much new at the time, was often just passing along information off the AP wire or the commercial television channels. Which of course did report the capture of the suspect, naming him as Lee Oswald.

    Coleridge was more into a “willing suspension of reality”-sound familiar?
