CounterPunch Whiffs Again!

Jim DiEugenio shows how distorted the lens is that CounterPunch writer David Schultz looks through to reach his own interpretation of the lesson of Vietnam that the U.S. should have applied to Afghanistan. The only lesson we learn from history is indeed that we learn nothing from it, if we rely on discredited sources like Halberstam's The Best and the Brightest.

Jonathan Chait meets Michael Kazin

Jonathan Chait joins Michael Kazin in publishing another non sequitur hit-piece on the JFK presidency in the mainstream media, so Jim DiEugenio, once again, continues his yeoman's work of setting the record straight by sharing the undisputable facts of the JFK presidency and exposing the shoddy research and poor analysis of the mainstream media.

Saving his best for last, Aaron Good finishes his review of Adam Curtis’ Can’t Get You Out of My Head with Part 3, dissecting the methods Curtis uses to muddle the truth and revealing his tendency to dissemble when dealing with very crucial aspects of state criminality, the dual state, geopolitics, Western imperialism, and the West’s adversaries.

Creating the Oswald Legend – Part 3

In the third part of this multi-part series, Vasilios explores the evidence that Oswald was a government agent by examining the Oswald legend created in New Orleans, Mexico City, and Dallas. He concludes by exposing the sinister use of a CIA mole hunt to produce the perfect patsy and prevent any genuine investigation of the true perpetrators of the JFK assassination.

Using powerful work by authors like Daniele Ganser and Phillip Willan about Gladio, and Michele Metta’s revelatory volume on Permindex, Rob Couteau’s milestone article shows how the murders of Kennedy, and Moro and the attempts on De Gaulle were not isolated events.

Truthdig, Major Danny Sjursen and JFK

Once again, the so-called progressive alternative media attempts—this time via the unfounded asseverations of a former West Point faculty member—to depict JFK as a typical Cold Warrior and an ineffectual president on all fronts. As usual, Jim DiEugenio demolishes the argument.
