Kinh Do Theater Saigon – Now Playing: Evidence Of Revision – Part 2

Welcome to Saturday At The Movies with Saigon Kids.

Tonight we continue with the film “Evidence Of Revision” (Part 2) – *The Why of It*.

If you have not seen Part 1 – you can view it here “Evidence Of Revision – Part 1”

While viewing Part 2 of this film you will literally SEE history being “rewritten” as you watch more *official myths* shown for the lies they are.

Today in 2010 it is a difficult mental stretch (even for us Saigon Kids who were alive and politically conscious back then) to realize that nearly 50 years ago most average Americans sincerely believed their government told them the truth – especially concerning things as serious as the assassination of a president or going to war.

While viewing Part 2 of this documentary, you’ll see the genesis and the source of the cynicism, detachment, and growing antagonism of ordinary Americans towards both their government and its (as opposed to their) military.

In 1964 most of the military was composed of draftees whose enlistment was based on the notion of serving their County that had given them so much. Today our military consists of so many “professionals” (a polite way of saying for hire mercenaries like the Hessian’s the British used to wage war against the Colonists during the Revolutionary War) whose fealty is to their chain of command, pay and benefits – not to their Country or its Constitution.

In 1964 and 1965 powerful political leaders like William Fulbright, Wayne Morse, and Hubert Humphrey spoke directly for attribution. Today reporters/stenographers whisper rumors and gossip from “unnamed sources” speaking “off the record” and “not for attribution”.

In ’68 when Walter Cronkite called LBJ and McNamara’s bluff over the win-ability of the Vietnam War, the president realized that he had just lost middle America and declined to run for a second elected term. Today when confronted with their lying, criminal actions, and broken promises the response is either “So?!!” or indifferent silence.

I’m not sure of the date of the Bishop Fulton Sheen clip at the very end of Part 2. However, whether it predates or came after, it is very similar to what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr said on April 4, 1967 (one year to the day before he was assassinated) in opposition to the Vietnam war.

“It is a sad fact that because of comfort, complacency, a morbid fear of communism, and our proneness to adjust to injustice, the Western nations that initiated so much of the revolutionary spirit of the modern world have now become the arch anti revolutionaries.

This has driven many to feel that only Marxism has a revolutionary spirit. Therefore, communism is a judgment against our failure to make democracy real and follow through on the revolutions that we initiated.

Our only hope today lies in our ability to recapture the revolutionary spirit and go out into a sometimes hostile world declaring eternal hostility to poverty, racism, and militarism.

With this powerful commitment we shall boldly challenge the status quo and unjust mores, and thereby speed the day when “every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low, and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain.”

Substitute “radical Islamic fundamentalism” for “communism” or “Marxism” and you realize that essentially nothing has changed in the 43 years since King made these observations.

If you listen to King’s speech (The American Rhetoric website has the speech available) you’ll be struck by how precisely right King was in his observations.

Mark Twain once observed, “The first casualty of any war is the truth” and as you watch Part 2 of this splendid documentary series, what you are viewing is the assassination of the truth surrounding US involvement in Vietnam’s civil war.

What you are viewing is valuable straight file footage verifying the facts from the men who were there and in high positions to know exactly what went on to provoke American involvement in Vietnam’s civil war.

You’ll be able to relate to many events in this film series which were taking place while you were in Saigon and after you left Saigon – all the way up to 2009.

This film was Produced by: *Anonymous*

The Producer of the film does not attempt to draw conclusions from the historical events covered in this film – but, leaves it up to you the viewer to reach your own conclusions from the material presented (much of which has been suppressed from the general public until now).

No opinions are offered by the silent narrator. You are left with only real media from a real time that you won’t see anywhere else. You are left to deal with your own bias on history and will find yourself forced to question your own intelligence.

This is a five-part video documentary series whose purpose is to present the suppressed historical audio, video and film recordings largely unseen by the public relating to the assassination of the Kennedy brothers, the little known classified “Black Ops” actually used to intentionally create the massive war in Viet-nam, the CIA “mind control” programs and their involvement in the RFK assassination and the Jonestown massacre and other important truths of our post-modern time.

As always, you are welcome to leave your Comments below.

Enjoy – The Why of It

    Bob: What exactly are you trying to say with this quote? “Today our military consists of so many “professionals” (a polite way of saying for hire mercenaries like the Hessian’s the British used to wage war against the Colonists during the Revolutionary War) whose fealty is to their chain of command, pay and benefits – not to their Country or its Constitution.”
    Is this something you believe to be true? I have problems with much of the commentary above, but this quote cannot stand. I served 30 years as a Naval officer, my last duty was training young officers to be, my daughter is a Navy nurse, and I’m still very closely interconnected with the active duty force. This comment is ludicrous on its face. The young folks in today’s military are smart, focused, and committed – NOT to the chain of command or barely adequate pay and benefits, but to each other, and to the mission – which is to “preserve and protect the Constitution of the United States”. The comment above as written is an insult and it deeply and personally offends me. We need to be careful of where this website is going. I understood its intent to be a place of meeting and community for Saigon Kids, not a forum for political/ sociological sermonizing. Folks are going to turn away from the site if we dwell too long in these waters.

    While I have no beef with the above comments, let me say that during my time in Frankfurt (2000-2004) I was a regular reader of the Stars and Stripes (S&S) plus the local German news. I know very well that the majority of the men and women in the military today are good, patriotic people, but there are a fair number of bad apples as well. S&S had several articles regarding military personnel being members of gangs. They were supposedly sent to the army (in this particular case) to learn how to handle weapons and other skills that would be useful back on the streets. Drunkenness, fighting, etc., by military members persists in the communities around the few bases that are still in Germany along with the occasion murder. Need I remind you about the rapes in Japan and Okinawa by Marines and sailors? Plus, I think many who enlist today do so because of the lousy job market in the U.S., not that I can blame them. I personally would like to see the draft reinstated simply because I think too many of today’s youth need some discipline in their lives plus the valuable skills one can learn in the military. Many don’t get the discipline at home, or in school and even if they get a high school education, many don’t have any worthwhile skills to take to the job market. My Army communications training got me into the Foreign Service and as a two year college dropout, I managed to have a fulfilling career with the State Department for 32 years. I consider myself lucky do have done as well as I have.
    I think a professional military is a good thing and many join for all of the right reasons, but we still should have a draft – a fair one.

    Although my father was an army officer, I have no opinion on armies but a deep deep sorrow for all the young kids who die, too many, too often, in too many useless wars.
    That being said, I humbly submit that we, who have known each other for more than 40 years, should be able to accept our differences of opinion on any matter. One may differ with Bob’s opinion on one thing, and agree with him on something else, no? We all lived different lives with different experiences that led us to believe in certain things…I personnaly find it constructive to read you guys even when I am not in the same frame of mind…whatever you say or think enriches me, because it brings a new perspective and forces me to think. Would it not be boring to death if we were all clones of one another.
    Besides, any of us is free to talk, answer, rectify, justify or whatever…freedom of speech is a precious right that people died and still die for.
    Oh my…I sound like “Dear Abby”…lol. But anyway, although I dont agree with Bob on all things, I want to thank him once again for the efforts he puts in keeping this forum alive for OUR benefit, the research he does to find for us relevant pieces of films, videos, press articles etc. I would not do it, that’s for sure, but if I did, I would not appreciate being told what I can say or not say.
    Big hugs to all.

  • What others are saying about this documentary – comments from across the Web …

    “In the ‘Evidence of Revision’ (it’s over 8 hours long) there are dozens of first hand accounts, with high-ranking government officials, and government documents showing evidence of misrepresentation, lying, cover-up, and plotting to mislead the public and break a multitude of laws…some of which are treasonous. I’ve watched over 60 documentaries in the past 2 years dealing specifically with LBJ/JFK and the Vietnam War. I never recommend any of them to the public; because there is almost always an element of the fringe conspiracy nut position which I don’t want to associate myself with or they say what anyone who is interested in the subject can easily find out.

    While ‘Evidence of Revision’ is a meta-documentary incorporating parts of other documentaries (including The Men Who Killed Kennedy), it is good at giving a straight-forward presentation for the most part. I highly recommend seeing it regardless of what you think you know or have heard before on the LBJ tapes. I, too, have scoured the LBJ tapes (even to the point of making a list of everyone he was known to have called for the two months following the JFK assassination and doing background work on those people). Talk about nerdish…I don’t even get paid to do it.

    The simple presentation of footage, with minimum of extraneous comments, makes the entire piece more powerful. Misleading editing? I don’t see it. Meanwhile, its ok with me if some people believe oswald was the lone assailant. I just hope that the freedom to believe, or not, per an individuals own evaluation, is still intact a hundred years from now. Until then, I will defend with my life if necessary, any one’s right to believe Oswald did it.

    This is an excellent piece of work. It is the best documentary that I have ever seen.

    It is unimaginable how much time it must have taken to, not only get all that material, but also to edit it in such a professional and excellent way.

    To whom ever made this documentary: Thank you very much for all your efforts.”

    “Happy to have stumbled upon this but oh my, where to start? Each instalment is over an hour, detailed study of events and interviews with players of the day. Mind blowing is an easy cover-all description, but that is essentially what this series does, shakes the foundations of what you thought you knew. Stick ’em on The History Channel and people would take to the streets – seriously jaw dropping material.”

    “I have seen all 5 parts and can’t recommend it enough. It is a must see.”

    “Another reason I finally bought a DVD player was to watch this series, the Mister and I watched the first one sitting in office chairs in front of a computer screen, not real comfortable. Everybody should watch this series, especially Part 5.”

    “Best JFK film I’ve seen. A must for anyone who REALLY still thinks Oswald did it.”

    “I saw this documentary and highly recommend it. Most of the time I just couldn’t move my eyes from the screen, while allowing the terror of our current situation to sink in…the horror, the horror…”

    “I found this terrific series of videos in a very strange comment on Digg. It presents historical events in their original contexts as presented in the media of the time. Very creative and very unfiltered views of things, leaving you to make up your own mind in the end on most every point. Highly recommended.”

    “I really enjoyed the whole thing. It did have some slow areas. All in all very worth watching though. I felt like it just kept getting better towards part3 with LBJ and all. Part 4 and 5 were awesome especially 5. I found the CIA/jonestown connections very interesting. The stuff about how Hoover was a blackmail artist/mafia lapdog and how the Kennedy brothers were blackmailed into putting LBJ on the ticket as vice was great. Part 5 is the best. It’s worth watching for the mind control stuff alone.”
