men like Averill Harriman, Henry
Stimson, John Foster Dulles and the like. The common rubric used
to catalog them is the Eastern Establishment. The Kennedy

wanted a surprise attack; Bobby rejected it saying his brother
would not go down in history as another Tojo. In 1961, JFK

that blamed Kennedy for the failure of the plan. Kennedy stripped
Murphy of his Air Force reserve status but - Murphy wrote to Ed
Lansdale - that didn't matter; his loyalty was to Allen Dulles
anyway. In 1963, Kennedy crossed the Rubicon and actually printed
money out of the Treasury, bypassing that crowning jewel of Wall
Street, the Federal Reserve Board. And as Donald Gibson has
written, a member of this group, Jock Whitney, was the first to
put out the cover story about that Krazy Kid Oswald on 11/22/63
(Probe Vol. 4 No.1).

was complete. The war was over.

That would be underestimating these people. They are in it
