Why We Do This?

Why We Do This?

The reason we do this - investigate the assassination - is because its an adventure, it’s a great adventure - no matter where or when you pick it up - and begin to ask questions - it’s a great adventure where the treasure being sought is the truth.

And it’s an obtainable truth - one that does answer the ultimate questions - who, what, when, where, how and why JFK died?

There’s a series of 1970s B-grade modern western movies - the Story of Billy Jack - a medal of honor special ops veteran - and the theme song “One Tin Soldier,” which became a big hit, about the wars between nations - and all of the death and destruction over a purported treasure - that when finally acquired - was a simple message - Peace on Earth Goodwill Towards Men,” or something like that.

We don’t do it for revenge or even justice - like you would if you were avenging the murder of a brother or your dog - as in “Odessa File” or “The Shooter.”

We don’t do it for justice - and I’ll tell you why - because they were the ruthless, vindictive killers, certainly sociopaths - and we are not.

This is best exemplified by Dr. Anne Stevens, sister to US Ambassador Christopher Stevens, assassinated by radical Islamic terrorists in Bengahzi. When Secretary of State Hilary Clinton called Dr. Stevens to relate her condolences,  Clinton said, “We will find out who did this and get them and bring them to justice.”

“Chris was not about justice,” she said of her brother, and indeed, even a cursory overview of Chris Stevens’ life shows you he was not about justice, but about something else, something even more valuable.

And while the law and those sworn to enforce it do have the responsibility of seeking justice, and seeing that justice is served, that is not our responsibility. Our responsibility is to the Truth, and let Justice take its own course.
