JFK--Casualty of the Cold War

James Piereson of the Manhattan Institute has this article on the crime of the twentieth century, 50 years ago next week.

The widespread feeling that disreputable elements in American culture contributed to Kennedy's death--fed by liberal media figures and politicians--encouraged an anti-American attitude that was a pronounced aspect of the radical and countercultural movements of the 1960s. In the process, the real assassin, his political coloration and likely motives were airbrushed from history.

Update: Mary O'Grady has this article in the 11/17 WSJ on the Castro connection.
