December 2016 Steel Notes Magazine all. The simple minded people who have swallowed the hook, line and sinker of the story always say with conviction, that you wouldn’t be able to keep people quiet if there were so many involved. I will only mention the extraordinary number of witnesses and people connected to the coup that have died, were killed or met their end under suspicious circumstances. I read in the book, Hit List by Richard Belzer, that the odds for so many people dying who were associated or connected to a singular event like the coup in the first ten (10) years are completely incalculable in reality. To not admit, divert, distract and create a boogeyman or common enemy, has been one of the cornerstones of American political culture, its a characteristic tenet of America to not admit, to whitewash, rewrite, and outright lie and deny. America needs consensus instead of conflict. It is has been the american way since this nation was founded on genocide, bloodshed and outright theft and violence. So the truth is that the coup in 1963 was a complete success. The ironic part that came to me later in my life was that they actually weren’t telling me to “look forward” they were telling me to look away, to not look at all or at the very least to look away. One hundered years or two hundred years from now, no matter what truths emerge from the shadows of lies, our history of President Kennedy’s death will remain the same. The full story of that day in November 1963 will never be known; sadly, what should have been done, wasn’t done, and what could still be done is not being done. 118 Steel Notes Magazine www.steelnotesmagazine.com NOTE: The opinions expressed in this article are the author's own and do not reflect the view of Steel Notes Magazine.
