Democracy now today had this headline-
Schlesinger was a Pulitzer Prize-winning historian and key figure in the Kennedy White House. He was an early supporter of the Vietnam War but in his later years an opponent of the invasion of Iraq. In his memoirs, Schlesinger expressed regret for helping suppress a New Republic story that showed the Kennedy administration was training Cuban mercenaries before the Bay of Pigs invasion.
Arthur Schlesinger: "The First World War and the Second World War were collaborative wars and that's why we won them. The fact that only Britain has made a serious military contribution to the unilateralist action of the United States has been one source of trouble. I think no one can defend the evident mess - it's like the [Vietnam] quagmire re-enacted."
Here we have an example of intentional supression by an administration which proves it is a bipartisan reality. Nice he can get away with it in his memoirs. Where's the justice. It proves you can get the media to comply with your requests if you have the power. Like Condi conveniently forgetting the offer of peace from Iran in 2003. Where's the outrage? Where's the media? She's still alive- we can hold her accountable for her lies.
Sorry if I got a little off topic but I was going to tie these stories together to illustrate how this deception thing and cover ups are happening all the time on both sides of government, when i saw this post already here.
The dead guy, yeah, just because he couldn't find it while alive, he found peace at last, but he had to die to get it!
