Everyone felt for the family of the fallen president. The Kennedys, John and Robert, were hands off as far as I was concerned because of the tremendous losses that family had suffered. John F. Kennedy would have actually been considered a conservative democrat with his economic policies in today's world. He had a lot of guts to go toe-to-toe with the Russians in the Cuban Missile Crisis.<quoted text>Steven Gallin wrote the piece based on an oral history that had been provided by AF Brig Gen NcHugh, Kennedy's aide, which was sealed for decades. Reviews are mixed and Gallin is widely known for elaborate half truths.
McHugh lied about several important facts__it was a very unusual and stressful time for him and all others involved__plenty of folks in CMA mode.
The 24 hrs piece is one in a History Channel series.
But I knew virtually nothing about the intense hatred between Robert Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson. Unless the events told in that documentary about his arrogance and treatment toward Johnson and the power struggle he created were nothing but exaggerations and falsehoods, it couldn't help but leave a bad taste in people's mouth.
