What the heck was Joe Kennedy Sr thinking?


Recommended Posts

-Joseph P. Kennedy advised his son President Kennedy to offer Robert Lovett any Cabinet post he might desire, right?

-Lovett declines, but ends up making recommendations on who to bring into cabinet, among them:

Robert S. McNamara, Dean Rusk, and (good lord) McGeorge Bundy, right?

-Lovett was a New World Order warrior.

So what's the story?

-Did Joe know the kind of person Lovett was?

-Was Joe cut out of the same cloth as Lovett?

-Did Joe assume Jack was also cut out of Lovett cloth?

Or

-Did Joe grossly misjudge Lovett and set his son up for the introduction of a bunch of Lovett snakes in his administration?

Or

-Some other scenario I can't fathom?

Thank you BK.

On edit:

Ah, now I remember.

I avoided reading books by Halberstam because I got the impression he was a wee bit of a mouthpiece.

I guess you think he's credible BK?

(I"m not challenging your reading choices, just trying to decide if I can get reliable info from this author.)
