‘President Betrayed’: Documentary on JFK foreign policy

The New York Times said:

“What Mr. Taylor’s documentary [narrated by Morgan Freeman] skillfully examines is how Kennedy subverted these leaders [of the U.S. military], using emissaries to approach Nikita Khrushchev and Fidel Castro, and how he tried to change a staid approach to foreign policy.”

  1. In 1957 Kennedy was already the “radical” visionary that became president in 1960.
    JFK was the first and last anti-imperialist US President:

    Imperialism – The Enemy of Freedom
    Senator John F Kennedy – July 2, 1957

    Mr. KENNEDY: “Mr. President, the most powerful single force in the world today is neither communism nor capitalism, neither the H-bomb nor the guided missile it is man’s eternal desire to be free and independent. The great enemy of that tremendous force of freedom is called, for want of a more precise term, imperialism – and today that means Soviet imperialism and, whether we like it or not, and though they are not to be equated, Western imperialism.

      Oh dear Willy. The poor man makes the same mistake you do about NSAM 263. He claims it is a JFK order for the complete withdrawal of all American troops by 1965. Everything he says after that depends on his false statement about NSMA 263 being true. It isn’t true and makes what he has to say so much junk.

      Here it is again Willy; “2. A program be established to train Vietnamese so that essential functions now performed by U.S. military personnel can be carried out by Vietnamese by the end of 1965. It should be possible to withdraw the bulk of U.S. personnel by that time”.

      Now you can cry “couched words and subtle words and imagination” all day but it doesn’t change what NSAM 263 actually says. It is clear as a bell. It says “should be possible” not we are come hell or high water as Newman & Company claims. It also says, “the bulk of U.S. personnel”. This is a long way from “ALL”. In fact McNamara told JFK that they would leave around 3,500 troops in country. That is roughly 20% of the force present in SVN at the time.

      I believe I have encountered Mr. Burnham before. Seems he was defending the Fletcher Prouty lie about writing the M/T report in the office of Kulak. If I was you I’d bench Mr. Burnham and keep him there.

    Interesting and nice video but I was disappointed it didn’t bring out a lot of this “betrayal” of JFK. Actually I saw very little betrayal.

    For the introduction we have the usual suspects; Galbraith doesn’t know what JFK would have done and while LeMay was rude and disrespectful the “Big or Bad Fix” he mentioned was the truth. Galbraith and the video carry on the lie about NSAM 263 and I honestly don’t know how they do that with a straight face. Do they think we are stupid?

    I had to laugh when the video claimed that the “advisers” JFK sent to Vietnam “disobeyed orders” and engaged in actual combat. That is a hoot but at least they admitted that our men were engaged in combat. Now I’ve had experience with men that “disobeyed” an order to “engage in combat” but I’ve never known a man that disobeys an order so he can “go into combat”! Thank about it.

    At the end of the preview, we see that this is “The Documentary That Will Likely Change Your View Of Kennedy Forever”. As one who has read many accounts of the Kennedy Presidency, his view appeared to be one in which he preferred peace over war. I haven’t yet seen the documentary, but the preview supports JFK’s peace view, it appears to me. I’ve read where he wasn’t going to send American ground soldiers to Vietnam. Will this documentary suggest the opposite? I guess I’ll have to see the documentary to find out.
