Thomas Bass

I listened to a interview on my local public radio station, WAMC, in Albany, NY, and I thought I'd tell you folks about it.  I found it quite interesting.  The interview does not touch upon the assassination of JFK, however, Thomas Bass tells an interesting and true story about a journalist who worked for TIME magazine who turned out to be a spy for the North Vietnamese communists.  As many JFK researchers know that there is a link between JFK's death and the change in American policy that led the Vietnam war I thought people would find this interview fascinating.
