Clips From Last Night: Douglas Brinkley and Nathan Raab discuss the revealing new JFK tape

Last night Piers Morgan sat down with Nathan Raab, Vice-President of the Raab Collection and acclaimed author and professor Douglas Brinkley to talk about the newly revealed original and unedited white house version of the Kennedy Assassination Air Force One tape. Raab told Piers that the tape is historically significant because "this is how we know what the Federal government did immediately after the assassination."

Douglas Brinkley remarked that one of the most fascinating aspects of the tape relates to General Curtis LeMay, one of Kennedy's major adversaries. All references to LeMay were removed in the Johnson Library version, an edited version of the original tape.

Brinkley on the omitted references to General LeMay:

"People have always wanted to know where was Curtis LeMay on the day Kennedy was shot and there have been mixed messages about it. This tape provides exactly where he was."

    People…WWJD? That is what we are to be doing, not repeating what we hear...not the worlds reports, no! No more “Confusion”, Take back every seat that is not Guarded by God’s words, HIS Love for his people, his children. Those who are not honoring God…get them out…keep them all out! That would be ALL!! We are under the blood...yes, speak the words...take back your county! Guard your thoughts to be only thoughts that Jesus would have, only speak words that are positive, not putting any one down. Remember…what is in heaven is yes and Amen! If it is in heaven….you can have it on earth…if only you speak the right words, think the right thoughts! God spoke and created heaven and earth….you have the same power…through the BLOOD! And it is for TODAY!! Hook up with me, stand on my foundation, I pray daily. No corruption in heaven, no liars in heaven, no harm to your children in heaven….I ask you father in Jesus name to forgive them, for they truly have no clue what they tried to do! I give them over to you…get them out of my way….get them out of your children’s way, no more twists, no more lies, no spins…no more… more! Get them out!
    Fear of the Lord? Godly men? Godly women?
    I only see Godly men and women, an Step aside…step aside…I take back my government, I take back my Country, I take back my State! My Town!!, from all those who are not Honoring Jesus! The manner in which you honor Jesus…God will honor you. I cast out every corrupt politician, in Jesus name and I loose God‘s love, peace, grace, mercy and restoration for our country in EVERY area NOW!!…get them out…take the seats back…take it back, now! In Jesus name!
    What they spew out of their mouths, I is not Godly...I only hear and see Godly…get them out, now, put them aside.
    Gods word says no harm to my children…that is all they are doing. I see total restoration, I see Godly men and women in office, I see it, I claim it in Jesus name, I send my angels out to get the work done now! now, go…go…go…“Then“….the very corruption they have yielded to…either, A). will bring them down or B). they can call out to Jesus! No more lies, no more confusion to any person…no more cover ups, no more…no more! I see total restoration, I see love, I see Godly people in all areas.
    This country was built strong… on a Godly foundation, it is still on a Godly foundation… to the left…to the left…the door is… to the left!!!
    In Jesus, then just thank Jesus or thank God for his word, his power, it is done, it is done! Don’t waiver, don’t doubt. What is in heaven is on earth ..if you speak it…call it…demand it, use your voice, your salvation, your right through the blood!

    Col Dorman was the aide -de-camp to General LeMay, and my father. Your boy Brinkley totally misinterpreted the message that was sent to AF 1 - and you obviously misinterpreted it also and fed his ignorance. I would like to know how I can obtain a copy of that portion of the tape, By the way, my mother was working at the White House at that time also - and Col Dorman was KIA in Vietnam 6 years later.

      In what way was Colonel Dorman's message to AF1 "totally misinterpreted"? He said that he needed to talk to LeMay. What was it that Colonel Dorman wanted to tell him?

  5. the psychopath test jon ronson take the test

    I'm amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's both educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head.

    The issue is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently
    about. Now i'm very happy that I stumbled across this during my
    search for something relating to this.
