Write-up of Press TV’s interview with Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor

Former US President Lyndon B. Johnson, with the CIA’s assistance, was involved in a “coup d’etat” to assassinate former President John F. Kennedy, an American scholar in Wisconsin says.

The interview discussed Philip Shenon’s article “Yes, the CIA Director Was Part of the JFK Assassination Cover-up.”

Johnson, along with high level CIA officials, “engineered the murder of Kennedy as a coup d’etat,” said Dr. Kevin Barrett, a founding member of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance.

“This has been established by alternative historians because you can’t publish this in the mainstream [media], you can’t say this in the academic journals,” Barrett told Press TV on Tuesday.

Listen to Kevin Barrett interviewing James Douglass, author of JFK and the Unspeakable, and Saint John Hunt, who obtained tape recorded and signed handwritten confessions from his father, CIA officer Howard Hunt, detailing Hunt’s role in the LBJ-CIA coup d’état that killed Kennedy.

Johnson served as vice president of the United States during the presidency of Kennedy from 1961 to 1963.

He was sworn in as president in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963, just 2 hours after JFK was assassinated in Dallas. This was interpreted by some that Johnson was too eager to assume power.

“We know that we had a coup d’etat on November 22, 1963, orchestrated by Vice President Johnson and top level CIA people, with the possible help of organized crime elements linked to the Israeli Mossad,” Barrett said.

Israel also had a motive to kill Kennedy because the president was opposed to the regime’s nuclear weapons program which he believed could instigate a nuclear arms-race in the Middle East, Barrett argued.

Kennedy encountered tensions with former Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion who wanted to develop nuclear weapons.

The President’s Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy, known unofficially as the Warren Commission, was established by Johnson in November 1963 to investigate the assassination of Kennedy.

The commission’s final report, released in September 1964, concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald acted entirely alone in assassinating Kennedy.

However, many researchers are unconvinced by the official government account and argue that Oswald was part of a conspiracy to kill Kennedy, perhaps in connection with Israel, Cuba or the former Soviet Union.

  1. “Coup” is correct. “Regime change” is not the product of one mind and two hands. In its scope, complexity and numbers involved, the successful Johnson-led coup was the precursor of 9/11.

  2. I hope every critter in DC that swore oath to izrahell is hung from a lamp post in public!
    we should empty our jails of all the violent criminals and drop them off in izrahell so they can be with like minded SOB’s. all the “news media moguls” who have been giving us nothing but disinfo and psyops need to be asset stripped deported. and thats just the start.
    anti-criminal is NOT “anti-semitic” as the luciferian TRASH would like to call us,
    the same TRASH that KILLS real semites in Gaza every chance they “MAKE”.

  3. My comment was sent before I checked for spelling, also how many people in the US know that Israeli terrorists sent letter bombs to Truman back in 1946-7. The jews where not sure he was going to recognise Israel, as he was getting advice not to.
    Also James Jesus Angleton retired to Israel, although returned to the states later to die there.

  4. There is three reasons JFK was hit by Israel,

    1) JFK’s brother was in the process of making the Israeli lobby a foreign power, so no dirty money going to candidates
    2) Ben Gurion resigns over JFK’s. insistence on nuclear inspections, claiming “Kennedys trying to kill this country”
    3) The big daddy of them all, JFK started printing US notes away from the Federal Reserve, and no interest(usury) to the US Govt or tax payers. He printed up to five billion before assassination, same synario to the Liycon assassination. You do not mess with the FED>
