Surveillance and Scandal
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Time-Tested Weapons for U.S. Global Power Cross-posted from TomDispatch.com For more than six months, Edward Snowden’s revelations about the National Security Agency (NSA) have been pouring out from the Washington Post, the New York Times, the Guardian, Germany’s Der Spiegel, and Brazil’s O Globo, among other places.  Yet no one has pointed out the combination of factors that made the NSA’s expanding programs to monitor the world seem like such a slam-dunk development in Washington.  The answer is remarkably simple.  For an imperial power losing its economic grip on the planet and heading into more austere times, the NSA’s latest technological breakthroughs look like a bargain-basement deal when it comes to projecting power and keeping subordinate allies in line -- like, in fact, the steal of the century.  Even when disaster turned out to be attached to them, the NSA’s surveillance programs have come with such a discounted price tag that no Washington elite was going to re ...

Rob Lowe Gets Presidential in Killing Kennedy
Seattle Pi - over 3 years
[...] you'll find no conspiracy theories - not even a hint - in the ambitious National Geographic Channel film Killing Kennedy. Based on the best-selling book by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard, it lays blame for the assassination of JFK (played by Rob Lowe) squarely on Lee Harvey Oswald (Will Rothhaar), a disgruntled ex-Marine with a psychopathic need to be noticed. "[...] often with epic tragedies we want to believe there are larger forces at work - something grand and powerful and secretive - because the alternative is almost more frightening to accept," says Lowe, a lifelong JFK enthusiast. Killing Kennedy tracks the lives of both victim and gunman, following JFK from his rise to the presidency through the Bay of Pigs invasion and the Cuban missile crisis and on to Dallas in November 1963 for that doomed journey with wife Jackie (Ginnifer Goodwin). "In terms of scope, cost and risk, this is the biggest project Nat Geo has ever attempted," says the channel's president, Howard ...

    More Details Hide Details Exner's memoir was adapted as a made-for-TV movie, Power and Beauty (2002), directed by Susan Seidelman, in which she was played by Natasha Henstridge. Material was added from accounts published after her 1977 memoir. Judy Campbell was portrayed in the 1998 HBO movie The Rat Pack by actress Michelle Grace. In the episode "In Camelot" of the TV series The Sopranos, the character of Fran Felstein is based on Judith Exner.
  • 1997
    Age 63
    In 1997, Exner alleged more details and changed her story, in separate interviews with Liz Smith of Vanity Fair and Seymour Hersh.
    More Details Hide Details She said Kennedy told her of his plans related to Cuba, and used her to carry money to Giancana, as well as to arrange numerous meetings between him, Giancana and Roselli. She also claimed to Smith to have terminated a pregnancy resulting from a last encounter in 1962 with Kennedy. She also said that she had carried payoffs from California defense contractors to the Kennedys, including Robert F. Kennedy. A witness of Hersh's who appeared to support Exner's story of carrying money to Giancana later dropped his story. Both liberal and conservative critics have attacked these later accounts. They depend mostly on Exner and are not supported by what is known of Kennedy and his staff. Her earlier accounts of her affair with Kennedy were supported by FBI reports, Secret Service and White House phone logs and staff documentation. She has been described as an "unreliable witness," with a history of instability, depression and paranoia and, by then, she was suffering from cancer.
