Coup d’état and Assassination: Business as Usual

Email Print

Michael, your cogent discussion of the February 28, 1997 ‘post-modern coup’ by the Turkish “deep state” and its contemporary implications is fascinating. One could not help but be reminded of the highly-acclaimed political thriller, Z, concerning the 1963 assassination of politician Grigoris Lambakis by the top tier of the Greek military and its fascist accomplices. But our establishment media constantly reassures us that such things “can’t happen here.” But they did happen here. On November 22, 1963 there was a coup d’état in the United States by Lyndon Johnson and the top echelon of the National Security State. The JFK Assassination marked the end of the American Republic. Subsequent presidential regimes of the two major political parties for a generation were composed of persons in the dark shadows of this event (Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Bush) who knew the sinister Sword of Damocles hanging over their head and the dire consequences if they went against the real powers-that-be running the country. Since 9/11 that ominous threat has been hanging over us all.
