“What Happens in Vegas: The Sixties Come Home to Roost, But Will the Truth?”

Greg and Jeremy are back to discuss the latest apparent American Gladio operation, the Las Vegas incident and it’s ongoing investigation qua cover-up. They ask what controlled role ‘Alt’ media like Infowars is playing. In discussing the resonance of this time with the Gladio operations in post WWII Europe, they take on the current big budget propaganda film about that era, “The Vietnam War.” Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s establishment-backed, state-sponsored AgitPropaganda qua artistically-accomplished, pseudo-balanced documentary with faux-logos that conceals key factual grammar while using hyper-intimate ‘realism’ for pathos-inducing catharsis that preps us to ‘cope with’ & be able to accept the ‘consequences’ of our next & currently ongoing ‘tragic’ criminal collective adventure in foreign lands killing thousands of ‘ours’ & ‘theirs’, leaves the most important questions of public integrity & ethics, & national interests & security unquestioned or duplicitously answered.

Jeremy & Greg urge all of We the People to consider and speak the truth plainly. Jeremy’s flyer with references on Vietnam Film: Why did American writer & soldier of conscience Tim O’Brien participate in and endorse a deceptive CIA agitation-propaganda film, “The Vietnam War,” backed by warmongers, gangbanksters, robber barons & other illegitimate anti-Constitutional powers (Bank of America, Koch, Rockefeller, Mellon, Blavatnik etc.), complicit with & covering for those that decided to have JFK, King, RFK & millions of other humans killed? Is Mr. O’Brien, and are you, with those who continue to treasonously deceive and criminally organize the ongoing deaths of multitudes, or with truth, justice, peace, freedom, dignity and We the People?
Relevant articles:
The Killing of History by John Pilger on Consortium News: “The narrator says the war ‘was begun in good faith by decent people out of fateful misunderstandings, American overconfidence and Cold War misunderstandings.’ The dishonesty of this statement is not surprising. The cynical fabrication of “false flags” that led to the invasion of Vietnam is a matter of record – the Gulf of Tonkin “incident” in 1964, which Burns promotes as true, was just one.” Ken Burns’s ‘Vietnam War’ is No Profile in Courage: Celebrated filmmaker continues tradition of avoiding inconvenient truths by Peter Van Buren in The American Conservative: “There is no reckoning in The Vietnam War, and it is doubtful there ever will be. You can’t close the book on Vietnam if you want to keep it open for Syria, or Iran, or wherever America makes war on an industrial scale against nations far less advanced, and commits torture, assassinations, and mass killings all the while trying to hide its dirty hands from the American public with the media’s financially-comfortable cooperation.” Getting the Gulf of Tonkin Wrong: Are Ken Burns & Lynn Novick “Telling Stories” About the Central Events Used to Legitimize the US Attack Against Vietnam?” by James M. Williamson in CounterPunch: “Burns and Novick are noted for specializing in the delivery of emotion-laden “stories.” Are they to be allowed to turn actually important, fundamental facts about the US war into a “story,” as well?” Burns, Episode 2 – The Whitewash of the CIA continues by arendt at Caucus99Percent: “One of the commentators in the series is Rufus Philips, who is captioned as USAID. Well that is a complete misrepresentation. At the time of Viet Nam, he worked for Ed Lansdale (see yesterday’s OP) of the CIA.” “Bottom line: Mr. Burns is demonstrably not a historian. He is a propagandist, towing the CIA propaganda line, whitewashing their criminal activities.”
Ken Burns Defends His Indefensible Reinvention of Vietnam War History by Stephen Lendman: “Burns: “(I)mages (of) little kids playing in a helicopter is the ultimate triumph. That the machine of war has become a safe and benign toy.” Fact: “That machine of war” today is far more destructive than half a century ago, a killing machine used to slaughter defenseless people, largely ivilians in harm’s way.” Ken Burns & Lynn Novick, The Vietnam War by Jim DiEugenio at Kennedys and King Part 1 “How can one tell the story of American involvement in Vietnam without mentioning the Dulles brothers…? ,,,These are the “decent men” that Burns and Novick could not bring themselves to mention.”
Part 2 “Edward Lansdale had been the first to advise Kennedy to insert combat troops into Vietnam. (Newman, p. 20) Sure enough, after Kennedy’s death, when Lansdale returned to the White House, he recommended sending Vann back to Vietnam. Vann did return in 1965, when Lyndon Johnson overturned Kennedy’s policy and committed tens of thousands of American combat troops to Saigon. (Kaiser, p. 384)”
Part 3 “As previously noted about Part 2, Burns and Novick failed to mention NSAM 263. This was the order by which Kennedy began his withdrawal from Vietnam. It said that 1,000 advisors would be brought home for Christmas, 1963. Kennedy sent Robert McNamara out to announce this to the press. (Newman, p. 407) Which was fitting since Kennedy had appointed his Defense Secretary to supervise the withdrawal plan until its completion in 1965. Johnson not only ignored NSAM 263, he actually increased the advisors there to over 20,000. The film notes this, but does not note how that broke with NSAM 263.”
