As college senior listening to JFK’s inaugural, Ray McGovern asked himself what he might do for his country. The answer was a no-brainer. Fluent in Russian, and after a stint as an Army infantry/intelligence officer, Ray became a CIA analyst – then chief of the Soviet Foreign Policy Branch, then responsible for The President’s Daily Briefing.
Only later did Ray conclude that the “operations” people on the other side of those CIA turnstiles orchestrated the assassination of JFK, as well as the cover-up. It became personal: Ray’s boss in the mid-60s was the morose ‘Fred’ Janney, father of Peter Janney, who reports the cover up (and his own father’s role in it) in his fearless book, “Mary’s Mosaic”.
30 years ago another book, “History Will Not Absolve Us”, challenged us to confront our instinctual preference to remain in denial. Today, 60 years after the murder, history will STILL not absolve us for being silent – or assuaging our consciences by just writing stuff. Ray McGovern thinks he knows what happened to President Kennedy, and why.
In this talk, Ray McGovern will express his view of how JFK died and why it matters – and to honor his legacy by spreading some truth about the “process of peace” which may have taken his life. Ray McGovern website is raymcgovern.com.
MAPA does not have a position that the CIA killed JFK. We present a range of views on peace issues.
