One topic at a time, the Standards Plus History Academy JFK Assassination Micro Courses examine the Crime of the Century, introducing students to the forces at work behind the coup d’etat of a duly elected American President. Students will study the government’s patsy, the six  investigations, and the five conspirators, including a close look at the multiplicity of nefarious  CIA activities revealed publicly in Congressional hearings before the Church and Pike  Committees in the 1970’s.

Key personalities will be studied in-depth, including Lee Harvey Oswald, E. Howard Hunt, Jack  Ruby, Allen Dulles, Richard Case Nagell, Richard Nixon, Santos Trafficante, Sam Giancana,  Carlos Marcello, Jimmy Hoffa, Howard Hughes, Lyndon Baines Johnson, Johnny Roselli, Fidel  Castro, Abraham Bolden, Judyth Vary Baker, the Cabell brothers, William Harvey, Frank Sturgis,  David Morales, Marita Lorenz, Jim Garrison, David Atlee Phillips, Lawerence O’Brien, James  McCord, Bernard Barker, Nikita Khrushchev, and a host of others.

Key institutions, groups, and pseudo-groups will be examined in-depth, including the “military industrial complex”, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the intelligence community, the Cuban exiles, the  Secret Service, Texas oil tycoons, the “Deep State”, among others. An accompanying timeline of  events will provide context, clearly demonstrating a connection between the JFK assassination to  other intelligence operations such as the Watergate Scandal.

Key terms and concepts, including backchannel, “black ops”, sheep dipping, doppelgangers,  ratlines, “galloping cancer”, SV-40, SIV, termination with extreme prejudice, plausible  deniability, extraordinary rendition, executive action, the 5412 Committee, “false flag”, the “S  Force”, the “missile gap”, the “missile myth”, and the “Plumbers” will be addressed.

Finally, key Pentagon and CIA operations such as Ajax, PBSuccess, Zapata, Mongoose, Phoenix,  Hotfoot, Mockingbird, 40, MKUltra, ZR/Rifle, Paperclip, Sunrise, Northwoods and key policy  initiatives including the National Security Act of 1947, National Security Action Memos 55, 56,  57, 263, and 273, the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, and the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution will also be  examined.

At the conclusion of each micro course, students will be able to better analyze the JFK assassination relative to each specific topic, ultimately fitting the JFK assassination within the  larger Cold War context, assessing the payoffs to its Cold Warrior conspirators, predicting the subsequent capture of the Executive Branch by military and intelligence operators – the “Shadow  Government” – and understanding the federal government’s seemingly unending and unlimited  war powers and their chilling effects on American citizens’ civil liberties.
