It is recognized as one of the most tragic and iconic events in US if not world history.

Friday November 22 at 12:30pm fifty years ago, the 35th president of the United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, was gunned down while traveling in his presidential motorcade at Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas.

A ten month long follow-up investigation, informally referred to as the Warren Commission, concluded that suspect, Lee Harvey Oswald had acted alone in carrying out the assassination.

Numerous researchers have expressed their skepticism about this version of events and claim that not only were there several individuals responsible for the assassination, but that the US State itself is implicated. One of the most compelling of these researchers is James Douglas, author of JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why it Matters This book was referred to by film maker Oliver Stone, creator of the acclaimed film JFK, as “an extraordinary new book that offers the best account he has read about this tragedy and its significance. ” [1]

Douglas was highlighted in a recent press release from the 9/11 Concensus panel. The article connected the JFK killing with the 9/11 event and called them both STATE CRIMES AGAINST DEMOCRACY (SCAD).

Elizabeth Woodworth is a researcher, a co-founder of the 9/11 Consensus panel and a contributor to Global Research. She spoke to the Global Research News Hour the week of the fiftieth anniversary to share her thoughts about these SCADs, the reasons they happen and who benefits. In her view, SCADs arise to protect dominant underlying power interests. She believes the Kennedy brothers and Martin Luther King posed a threat to those interests in the sixties, as do efforts today to mitigate climate change.

Barrie Zwicker is a long-time Canadian journalist, broadcaster and media critic. In recent years he has become outspoken about his views about 9/11 as being a so-called ‘false flag’ operation. He too sees deeper power interests linked to what he calls the Intelligence-Military-Academic-Industrial-Media complex. (IMAIM) The author of TOWERS OF DECEPTION: The Media Cover-up of 9/11 shares his thoughts in the second half hour.

Julie  Lévesque finishes off the hour with a selection of notable articles from the Global Research website which depart significantly from the Mainstream Media consensus around the JFK official story and explore it as a ‘deep’ political event.
