OccupyGrassyKnoll.org and others have called for the release of key classified documents which would shed light on many more questions surrounding the president's murder, which took place before the eyes of thousands, in a horrific and brutal manner. A letter-writing campaign is scheduled for the week of November 22 urging the release of the documents.
It has emerged through historical documents that JFK did not believe that the war in Vietnam could be won and was planning to pull out American troops, according to his Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara. In addition, Kennedy in a speech at American University on June 10, 1963 revealed his intention to short-circuit rapid build-up of nuclear weapons by both the US and the USSR by favoring a policy of detente. It is speculated that Kennedy diverged from the agenda of business elites and the "military-industrial complex", a term coined by President Eisenhower in his Farewell Speech. Eisenhower warned that the powerful combination of big business and military might prove a mortal threat to democracy.
