The loss of the Powers U-2 came before the election of John Kennedy granted, but the demonstration of the power of the dark power groups (meaning the facilitators we can get ideas of identity concerning) and the sponsors of dark pol overseers as well can reveal some odd things going on in the DOD/CIA conjunction of operatives and deeds before the unexpected election of the opponent of Richard Nixon six-months later.
Prouty and his "undefined" infamous four that could have sent the aircraft out, this quandary doesn't bother me because of the multitudes of fact-checks I've done that confirms Fletcher Prouty's veracity. Also knowing about the code of conduct as opposed to the UCMJ that is applied to military persons by each other as a matter of integrity and honor, my opinion is that Fletcher Prouty told as much as he could inside those values.
I also must point out that "the four" people's identities can be gleaned from between the lines combined with a little digging for corroboration to my opinion.
Is it not interesting that AWDulles apparently did not know the aircraft had been launched as President Eisenhower forbade all overflights even the humanitarian relief flights?
Even the primary facilitators have to play the roles as told.
The Paris Summit was crashed for the lies of the US Government attending the U-2 loss of May 1960.
This ought to be enough to get the topic opened.
