Best of TUC: In remembrance of the JKF assassination
Dan Rather, whose career ending expose, in 2004, of G.W. Bush’s failed National Guard service is described in Russ Baker’s Family of Secrets, said about the book: “It made me rethink even those events I witnessed with my own eyes.”
In this 2010 interview Baker gives his interpretation of the source and purpose of the National Guard documents. He also presents more information on the connections of George Herbert Walker Bush to the Kennedy assassination, including the briefing that Father Bush received right after the murder, as well as the long time friendship between Bush and George de Mohrenschildt who became the handler of Lee Harvey Oswald.
This is a Best of TUC Radio repeat and update of the 2010 program on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination.
