Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
Hopefully, the "youtube video" BS was about chasing down the perpetrators before they knew that we knew.
When a brainstorming group is put to the task and given weeks to accomplish same, Hillary Clinton could come out smelling like a rose. And yet again the right will be painted as witch hunters. The difference this time is that I think they've found one.What do I have to say . . . what had to happen in order for me to come out of this clean? Whatever that is? That's what happened and that's exactly what I'll say.
Thank you, Quazi!

Regarding the guy who was arrested for that video, he was arrested on other charges (an outstanding warrant) and I'm pretty sure everyone now knows that he had nothing to do with Libya.
NATO has missiles in Turkey.
The Soviets wanted the NATO missiles removed from Turkey.
Soviets put missiles in Cuba.
Soviets told Robert Kennedy that if NATO removes missiles from Turkey, they will remove missiles from Cuba.
Soviets agree to keep this secret to save JFK from looking weak.
This was kept secret from the American people for twenty years.
>" Over the years, many scholars of the Cuban Missile Crisis came strongly to suspect that Robert Kennedy had, in fact, relayed a pledge from his brother to take out the Jupiters from Turkey in exchange for the Soviet removal of nuclear missiles from Cuba, so long as Moscow kept the swap secret; yet senior former Kennedy Administration officials, such as then-National Security Advisor McGeorge Bundy and then-Secretary of State Dean Rusk, continued to insist that RFK had passed on no more than an informal assurance rather than an explicit promise or agreement.
The first authoritative admission on the U.S. side that the Jupiters had actually been part of a "deal" came at a conference in Moscow in January 1989, after glasnost had led Soviet (and then Cuban) former officials to participate in international scholarly efforts to reconstruct and assess the history of the crisis. At that meeting, former Kennedy speechwriter Theodore Sorensen (and the uncredited editor of Thirteen Days) admitted, after prodding from Dobrynin, that he had taken it upon himself to edit out a "very explicit" reference to the inclusion of the Jupiters in the final deal to settle the crisis.

Let me know if you want to hear the truth about the Bay Of Pigs fiasco.
