  • White House Tapes

    Three of America's most compelling presidents - Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon - bugged their White House offices and tapped their telephones. They left behind thousands of secretly recorded conversations, from momentous to mundane. In this documentary project, American RadioWorks eavesdrops on presidential telephone calls to hear how each man used one-on-one politics to shape history.

    Robert F. Kennedy: I will send the Marshals that I have available up there in Memphis and there will be about 25 or 30 of them and they will come with Mr. Meredith and they will arrive at wherever the gate is and I will have the head Marshal pull a gun and I will have the rest of them have their hands on their guns and their holsters. And then as I understand it, they will go through and get in and you will make sure that law and order is preserved and that no harm will be done to Mr. McShane and Mr. Meredith.

    Ross Barnett: Oh, yes.

    RFK: And then I think you will see that’s accomplished?

    RB: Yes. Hold just a minute, will you? Hello, General, I was under the impression that they were all going to pull their guns. This could be very embarrassing. We got a big crowd here and if one pulls his gun and we all turn it would be very embarrassing. Isn’t it possible to have them all pull their guns?

    RFK: I hate to have them all draw their guns, as I think it could create harsh feelings. Isn't it sufficient if I have one man draw his gun and the others keep their hands on their holsters?

    RB: They must all draw their guns. Then they should point their guns at us and then we could step aside. This could be very embarrassing down here for us. It is necessary.

    RFK: If they all pull their guns--is that all?

    RB: I will have them put their sticks down before that happens. There will be no shooting.

    RFK: There will be no problem?

    RB: Everyone pull your guns and point them and we will stand aside and you will go right through.

    RFK: You will make sure not the Marshals but the State Police will preserve law and order?

    RB: There won't be any violence.

    Great link Mr. goalie.

    I ave read some excerpts previously.

    It is when I learned, all this "deception" in politics is not so new.

        I love the tape of LBJ talking to his tailor, making sure that the guy understands that he needs more crotch room for his boys.
