Reading Time: 6 minutes Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s documentary series on Vietnam is capturing America’s attention. But it skates very lightly over one of the war’s most contentious questions: Did President John F. Kennedy intend to pursue the fight or to pull out?
Reading Time: 4 minutes Furthering our mission to expose the story behind today’s headlines, we explore the background of President Donald Trump’s friend and fellow billionaire Erik Prince.
Reading Time: 16 minutes The first of three parts on a crime as mysterious as the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
Reading Time: 18 minutes Politico Magazine featured an article that appeared to question the official narrative of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy — that he was killed by a lone-nut — but in the end only supported it. Why does mainstream media refuse to recognize any evidence to the contrary?
Reading Time: 9 minutes For more than 25 years, retired Army Intelligence officer Dr. John Newman has presented new findings relevant to the study of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. An early release of withheld documents now confirms many of his conclusions, with some unexpected revelations along the way.
Reading Time: 2 minutes Earle Cabell, mayor of Dallas on the day of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, and brother of the former Deputy Director of Central Intelligence, was himself a CIA asset when JFK was murdered.
Reading Time: 11 minutes How did the state of democracy in America become so precarious? Read on.
Reading Time: 15 minutes In this installment, we begin to see the treachery of John Dean, and the chilling machinations of Skull and Bonesmen Poppy Bush and Richard A. Moore, whose bony fingers seem to be into everything.
Reading Time: 15 minutes In Part 4, we see more and more tantalizing evidence of how much our perception of events, and of people, can be manipulated.
Reading Time: 13 minutes Blackwater founder Erik Prince wants private contractors to replace the US military in Afghanistan. History shows that might be a bad idea. In the 1980s, in the midst of the Savings and Loan crisis and the Iran-Contra scandal, private connections to the CIA kept turning up like a bad penny.
Reading Time: 16 minutes With tomorrow being America’s birthday, we thought it a good time to look at an underrated figure who shaped the country’s destiny, albeit not in the ways you heard.
Reading Time: 16 minutes More revealing details on the intricate ways in which President Richard Nixon clearly seems to have been set up. And the role of Big Oil behind some of the machinations — but who else was involved, and why?
Reading Time: 14 minutes In Part 2, we look at the remarkable fact that Richard Nixon was present in Dallas on November 22, 1963 when his 1960 vanquisher, John F. Kennedy, was violently removed from office. Is it preposterous to wonder if Nixon’s presence there was engineered? Was it to teach him a lesson?
Reading Time: 13 minutes Is there a “Deep State”? And did it do Nixon in? A timely look at a precursor event for Trump Times. Part 1 of a series.
Reading Time: 6 minutes From Watergate to Iraq War propaganda, conflicts between the Deep State and the Executive branch have proven helpful to the public. They provided a glimpse into the White House and the nation’s intelligence apparatus, leading to important reforms. So perhaps an open conflict between the Trump administration and the Deep State isn’t such a bad thing.
Reading Time: 7 minutes Deep State analysis is at the core of what we do at WhoWhatWhy. With that genre apparently no longer simply dismissed as “conspiracy theory,” the corporate media seem to be playing catch up to a game that is already well into overtime.
Reading Time: 22 minutes A journalist who has witnessed a lot — the 1968 police riots during the Chicago convention, Los Angeles following the Charles Manson murders, the implosion of the US Army at the end of the Vietnam War — has never seen anything as depressing as the election of Donald J. Trump.
Reading Time: 1 minute Barack Obama’s words, so full of hope and naivete, now seem poignant as we realize how little he was allowed to do by the powers that be.
Reading Time: 56 minutes From Watergate to Iran-Contra to the present, official lies have justified public crimes. When exposed, crimes unpunished to protect deeper secrets create an alternate reality in which the propaganda of power secures impunity for the powerful.
Reading Time: 14 minutes The world’s richest are now more likely to be Internet billionaires than traditional “captains of industry.” However, these young mavericks are still trying to shape the world in a way that suits them. With regard to the deep state, the players may have changed, but the game remains the same.
