The JFK/007 nexus

We tripped over an interesting essay over at the intriguingly-named Assassination Agnostic, a website for theories about the assassination of president John F. Kennedy.

The article takes its name from the site’s domain, JFK007, and makes some interesting comparisons between Ian Fleming’s immortal literary creation and the all-too-mortal American president.

…the two ambassadors of swinging sixties charm were also two of the Cold War’s coldest warriors. Both were boarding school boys turned navy officers, men who rose in rank to the heights of government service. They were the sort of men all others envied, and all women pined for.

This isn’t necessarily new ground, but the piece goes on to make some fascinating connections between the James Bond novels and American foreign policy, the CIA, and ultimately — tragically — Lee Harvey Oswald. For the student of Fleming’s novels, this is real grist for the mill!
