JFK– Remembering What Could Have Been


I was a baby when JFK was shot, but I grew up with children’s books, like MEET JFK, MEET MLK, and MEET RFK. I have taken students many of times to the exact location at the foot of the grassy knoll where JFK was murdered. Most Americans believe there was a cover-up–and retrospectively historians tell us that it may not have been the military industrial complex that killed JFK after all–just a mob hit trio supported by one of the USA security agencies whom JFK and Bobby had threatened. We wish that our recent Presidents had had, however, the gall and foresight to get the military industrial complex, the DOD, the CIA, the NSA, and the FBI in line. I.e. keeping American military and American participation in wars out of the Middle East, Asia and Latin America.–kas

Fifty years after the assassination, USA TODAY explores the death and legacy of John F. Kennedy. Read about the lives he touched and the promises he kept, and go behind the scenes of the National Geographic Channel film Killing Kennedy, based on the best-selling book.
