I've been doing a lot of researching lately on JFK and his life and death, picking up new nuggets of information after years of prior research. I always keep my hand in.
This is an interesting piece that will make your hair stand on end. JFK was constantly being pressured to invade Cuba, whether during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis or not, to start a war with Russia (pre-emptive first strike), and so on by the military and the CIA. Note how he was trying to thaw the Cold War in the latter days of his Administration. The military/industrial complex was not happy.
Operation Northwoods: brought to you by the people who faked the Gulf of Tonkin attacks (giving LBJ the excuse to ratchet up the Vietnam War to a major level, sending in thousands of American troops, something Kennedy would have resisted, as proven by NSAM 263, issued October 11, 1963, that said 1,000 advisors would be brought home by Christmas 1963 and ALL American personnel OUT OF VIETNAM BY 1965).
On November 26, 1963, the day after JFK's burial, Johnson issued NSAM 273, quietly reversing that policy.
