In an in-depth conversation, James Douglass, author of “JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters”, spells out his theory that the 35th President was the victim of a murder conspiracy and that he died because of his peacemaking policies. He tracks Kennedy’s transformation from a hawkish anti-Communist to someone who helped save the world from nuclear war by establishing back-channel conversations with Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev. Listeners will also hear much of Kennedy’s 1963 speech at American University during which he laid out his vision for world peace, less than 6 months before his murder. Paul Ingles hosts.
