Dodd and Dulles vs Kennedy in Africa


Recommended Posts

This is an essay I wrote for Probe Magazine back in the late nineties. It is nice complement to my article on Hammarskjold and the Congo. If you read them both you will get a good overview of the whole Congo Crisis, which I think is not given anywhere hear the attention it should in the critical community.

In this piece you will get a good overview of how JFK formulated his foreign policy ideas from 1951 onward. And how they differed with Eisenhower, Nixon and Dulles.

Very good overview. I still remember my leftist dad being so upset at the death of Lumumba, and seething at Dulles. But I don't think he ever got the full picture on JFK. Very few of my contemporaries are the least bit familiar with this Congo story, or with the anti- establishment positions of JFK on anti-colonial movements. I can guess that mainstream media then did not cover the story adequately, certainly not prominently.
