Killing Kennedy: Killing Kennedy Trailer
Nat Geo presents a world premiere television event, coming in November to coincide with the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination. Based on the best-selling book, the film charts the events surrounding shocking deaths that stunned a nation.
I've gotten National Geographic Channel on Cox before, and saw Killing Lincoln. But tonight all I've gotten is a blank screen. What's going on? I hope this gets cleared up by Friday when it's broadcast again.
I guess I will have to catch this at a latter date on Netflix or Hulu since Comcast has changed the line-up on basic-extended cable, again ... oops National Geo been removed ... I really hate comcast ... enjoy the program everyone...
Kenney and his brother made many enemies with people they socialized with and asked favors from and paid the price. Some want to believe that he was against the military Industrial Complex which is a lie. He was as Hawkish as anyone in those days. The Russians only placed missiles in Cuba After Kennedy placed nuclear armed missiles in Turkey initiating the conflict and accelerating the arms race in both countries. He and his brother did make enemies with the Mafia and members of the intelligence community. Many involved with the Bay of Pigs felt he had lied and betrayed them and two groups came together to seek revenge on a common enemy or in their eyes traitor.
This entire film is based on a lie, which was first promoted and shared by the Warren Commission. Lee Harvey Oswald did not kill President Kennedy. The real perpetrators of this horrible crime were elements within very own government. JFK wanted to find a way to end the arms war with the Soviet Union and the American Military Industrial Complex didn't wish to see this happen. Read more about it in "JFK and the Unspeakable."
I remember where I was that horrible day 50 years ago on Nov 22. I wish we really knew the entire truth about the why and the who? History will always be overshadowed by many missing pieces to this puzzle. I wonder how the world would have evolved had JFK not been assassinated.
Sue Paper--i was a 17 year old intern at A I D when I met and shook hands with JFK on the South lawn of the White House. We spoke -- a picture appeared in my home town of Rochester NY. I was shaking his hand--a thrill which led me on a political path as a teacher advocate. Loved those beautiful blue eyes and that accent!
The missiles in Turkey were already there. It was a show of force on both sides. Kennedy did what he had to do to keep Cuba from becoming one big Soviet military base. Stop taking the side of the God-accursed Russians you liberals. They started the Cold War and their goal was to use subversion to turn the world Marxist.
@Kage McGuire There are always going to be nay-sayers accusing our pres of these kind of things. Roosevelt, the Kennedy's, Johnson, Nixon, Obama, all the way back before Lincoln. A pres is always the scapegoat, no matter what, whether their Rep or Dem. It's about the only thing in Washington that's bi-partisan any more.
There may have been a conspiracy but Oswald was NOT an innocent man. The evidence against him is too damning and his own behavior when and after he was arrested condemned him. The so-called Military-Industrial Complex can't keep a secret for 50 weeks, let alone 50 years. Can you leftists never blame any country but the USA for every problem in the world?
@Don Otlin I wasn't even around then but I have always been curious about the whole truth. I recently watched one documentary that I think does a pretty good job of filling in the gaps with evidence. If you're interested it's called JFK: The Smoking Gun
@Susanne Paper Yeah, those blue eyes & accent got him into alot of trouble with the ladies. How much is true? We'll never really know. Who & why was he killed? Another thing we'll never really know. But it's fun, after all these yrs, to still try & speculate about the biggest mystery our country has ever had. (So far)
