I hope everyone reads this fine new article at Kennedys and King by Michael LeFlem.


This has been one of the most ignored areas of Kennedy's foreign policy which was subverted. To me, it is really one of the most outrageous things that the Dulles/Eisenhower/Nixon regime did. And some have said it was done before JFK was inaugurated because they knew that he would reverse the policy there.

This article incorporates the new material on the subject in John Newman's second volume of his series. What was done to Lumumba, and Congo, was an utter and complete disgrace.
