In summary it seems likely this was a subtle and complicated plot to organise a mini second civil war in the United States. The plotters were not trying to overthrow Roosovelt, as feared by mass media, but to organise his defence against those who were against him. They approached a decorated Marine Corps General to be the fake leader of the patriotic heroes, the American Legion. Presumeably those who hated Roosovelt would be secretly marshalled by the same plotters and hence destined to loose the war. Their defeat would give great strength to the New Deal political revolution, which the corporate establishment had planned.
In the light of Smedley Butlers testimony, the history of the American Legion makes for very interesting reading…………MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
