Oh, lordy, yet another book in the list of endless books from Chomsky. Chomsky has made a career of lying about the Kennedy Administration and trivializing the contributions of the Kennedy brothers and Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Chomsky has falsely attributed Operation Brother Sam to President Kennedy, when it clearly was the responsibility of LBJ and happened under his watch. Chomsky has falsely attributed the entire responsibility of the Bay of Pigs, when the plan was created and designed and initiated under Eisenhower, JFK had the bad misfortune and even worse advise to proceed, but Kennedy forbade the originally stated actions: assassination of Castro and full US military backing!
Chomsky was hired at MIT when Fred Koch was a trustee there - - never heard him mention anything about the patriarch of the Koch family, et cetea. Chomsky was at Harvard the same time as Kissinger, wonder if they were involved in any manner?
Another book from Professor Nebulous . . . ho hum!
