Ever since researchers and commentators began questioning the conclusions of the Warren Report on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the response has been: Why would the US national-security establishment - that is, the military and the CIA - kill Kennedy?
As Douglas P. Horne details in this audiobook, JFK's War with the National Security Establishment: Why Kennedy Was Assassinated, the answer is because Kennedy's ideas about foreign policy collided with those of the US national-security establishment during the height of the Cold War. In the eyes of the military and the CIA, Kennedy's policies posed a grave threat to national security.
Horne served as chief analyst for military records for the Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB). This was the federal agency that Congress established to secure the disclosure and release of JFK-related records and documents after the public outcry generated by Oliver Stone's movie JFK. Horne is the author of Inside the Assassination Records Review Board: The U.S. Government's Final Attempt to Reconcile the Conflicting Medical Evidence in the Assassination of JFK, a five-volume work that focuses primarily on the autopsy of Kennedy's body that was conducted by the US military.
Best explanation of the JFK murder to date. A must read for those interested in the truth.

Horne has distilled much of his advanced knowledge of JFK and his battles with the national security state in various essays that chronicle JFK's vision to reform the nation and the dark forces that lurk just beneath our fragile and artificially created mainstream culture which hint that our country is not the bastion of democratic ideals that many believe, but that a militaristic deep state, embedded during WWII, has not only remained and grown into a Leviathan, but continues to retain a disturbing influence on all parts of life in our country. The study of JFK is crucial to becoming literate in the true nature of power, and wary of the illusions that to this day prevent Americans from being the true owners of their nation. The deceptions fed to us by our corporate fascist state are now so bold and prevalent and painfully obvious that one wonders if we are just too habituated to accepting lies as we sit like boiling frogs as a once great Republic is held captive by nefarious forces until it is a mockery of what it was once envisioned as, a country of the people, by the people, for the people. Let us pray that our true potential, as individuals, and as a nation, can be restored. Wonderful book that helps show one man' s courageous attempts to do just that. To see JFK as a dream that was robbed from us, is too see the truth and errors of our history, that we might be able to embrace truth and forge a path forward instead of cowering in fear or ignorance.

The author thoroughly documents the rising tensions between JFK and both the military and intelligence establishment leading up to his assassination. One also learns the courage he must have possessed and how he most certainly averted nuclear war with the USSR.
very interesting facts and important implications for those that value freedom. My respect for president Kennedy grew as I learned more about his presidency. He was a visionary ahead of his time.
From the Assassination Records Review Board. Must read. One of the best books on the subject. Wow.
