Could Ron Paul be keeping quite on this fundamental problem, like JFK did on Vietnam? JFK was said to go with the flow of keeping troops in Vietnam but really planned to remove them. This was before he was murdered by the Jewish Cabal.

It's pretty pathetic how Americans think Britney Spears is more important than to take interest in their National safety and security.

There is no evidence that Kennedy was going to pull the troops out of Vietnam. This is wishful thinking by fans of Kennedy, who romanticise his legacy.

Peter, I am a big fan of your show. In fact, I think you are on the top guys out there in league with William Cooper and Eustace Mullins. But I disagree with you about JFK planning to end the Vietnam War. There is documented proof of this. I refer you to this webpage...

Plus, there is a FOIA released memo that was mentioned in Oliver Stones limited hangout incomplete movie JFK. While much was left out of that movie, one thing they did get correct was the Kennedy plan to remove all troops by 1965 which was reversed only days after JFK died. In fact, reversed on the day of his funeral.

Peter Dale Scott, among others has written at length about exactly this.

the authorization for the OPLAN 34A program is contained in NSAM 273, the first National Security Action Memorandum signed by President Johnson (on November 26, four short days after President Kennedy's murder, following an emergency meeting on Vietnam on the 24th). This NSAM was drafted the day before Kennedy's fateful motorcade ride in Dallas, but the draft version differs markedly in the scope of authorization for such a program, and in any case Kennedy never saw or signed it.

Beyond the above is the larger question of Kennedy's policies and plans in Vietnam. Here, serious gaps in the record have been filled in since the passage of the 1992 JFK Assassination Records Collection Act. The gaps have been filled in with more details on the plans for complete withdrawal from Vietnam which were drawn up in the spring of 1963, and initiated on October 11 with NSAM 263. This gave the order for an initial pullout of 1000 men before the end of 1963, an event which never occurred.

With the filling in of the record - why were these documents a state secret for 35 years? - the debate among historians has shifted. No longer is the issue whether there was a plan to withdraw - the question has moved to whether it was "serious enough" to survive the change in reporting of the battlefield conditions which occurred in the wake of Kennedy's murder, from optimistic to pessimistic. Some historians, including David Kaiser (American Tragedy) and Howard Jones (Death of a Generation) now argue that Kennedy was determined to withdraw despite a change in conditions, joining Peter Dale Scott, John Newman, and no less than Robert McNamara
