    Alternative History?, you mean fiction, fake news and lies. In a world where so much has and is happening why not focus on reality.

    So a documentary on fictitious events? How can that be considered a documentary?

    Dumbumentary...

    I can only presume that the creator of this idiocy has mistaken John F. Kennedy for his father Joseph P. Kennedy, Sr.
    JFK would have been 23-24 at this time, and ineligible to be President

    I appreciate the feed back but this is not all lies a lot of this is factual information. Who is to say that this is any better of an account of the events then any other. What is truth? I think that we can both agree that Stalin lead the Soviet Union after Lenin that Hitler lost Stalingrad and Berlin that Coca Cola and IBM did business with Nazi Germany and that Walt Disney and Wernher Von Braun collaborated. Also, current events? This is a historic documentary and this is a forum on history. You know we can all learn from history as not to repeat its mistakes in current events.

    You have a point but that is if you believe in the current "accepted version of history" im just trying to present the facts through a different lens.

    "Obstacle," not "obsticle." "Regrettably," not "regratably." "Reagan," Not "Raegan."

    I won't even go into Snowden.

    Goofy mishmash.

    Snowden is just an archetype. Stalin had a spy program and it was leaked. We know about it today so someone "Some Snowden" was responsible for our knowledge of that spy program.

    Just want to discuss this. Why is it such a crime that when I posted this I spent a few days of my life building a documentary to make a clear argument for me. Is it really that terrible if its talked about.

    A few days...More like a few seconds.

    What is your argument? I went on to other things when the video implied that JFK was President in 1940.
    As for a documentary on the Space Race between Germany, the USA, and the USSR, I would suggest the BBC's 4-part series.

    But, if you really want to discuss it...Lets.

    When was, and under which President was the US Constitution shredded so as to allow a 23-year-old JFK to become President?

    The problem is that you fail to understand that it is in the details where a plausible alternate history dwells. No serious student of history would take this 'what-if' as being even remotely credible, worse it reeks of revisionist history considering your comments in response to our criticisms. Fake news is bad enough, fake history that offers nothing substantial to ponder is little more than mental masturbation..

    JFK could have 1) lied about his age 2)History could have been rewritten granting him a different age with his real age forgotten after a decade or 2 from the mass conscience. 3) Another reason for the inconstancy.

    I would ask which source are you getting his age from and also what other sources are saying?

    Are there any descanting voices when it comes to JFK any one claiming the facts have been changed? What are they saying?

    You know lets examine every side and the most evidence we can. Not everything points to one view there are multiple ways to look at the same situation.

    Lets take the scholarly hard approach and not jump on the first information provided.
