War Criminal and Peace President

Ralph Raico and Andrew Gavin Marshall on the 33rd and 35th presidents, the former a Freemason, the latter a Catholic, respectively — Harry Truman and the Atomic Bomb and The National Security State and the Assassination of JFK.

"Today, self-styled conservatives slander as 'anti-American' anyone who is in the least troubled by Truman's massacre of so many tens of thousands of Japanese innocents from the air," reminds Mr. Raico, concluding, "If Harry Truman was not a war criminal, then no one ever was."

"Kennedy, for his part, 'was more viscerally antiwar than has been recognized in some quarters,' as he once stated, 'I am almost a “peace-at-any-price' president," says Mr. Marshall, suggesting his killing "marked the turning of the American National Security State apparatus against its own leadership" and calling it "a political lynching on a grand scale."
