Jacob G. Hornberger – “The National Security State: The Biggest Mistake in U.S. History”


The Future of Freedom Foundation held its “The National Security State and JFK” Conference on Saturday, June 3, 2017, at the Dulles Airport Marriott in Northern Virginia. The conference examined the nature, origins, and consequences of America as a national security state since the end of World War II, including such programs as regime-change operations, invasions, occupations, coups, support of dictatorships, assassination, torture, indefinite detention, rendition, and kidnappings.

The conference also focused on President John F. Kennedy’s turn toward peace and friendly relations with the Soviet Union and Cuba and his resulting war against the U.S. national-security establishment.

This once in a lifetime event lined up one of the most impressive array of eleven expert speakers for this conference, including Ron Paul, Oliver Stone, Stephen Kinzer, Michael Glennon, Douglas Horne, David Talbot, Peter Janney, Jefferson Morley, James DiEugenio.
