As WorldNetDaily recently reported, new research shows President John F. Kennedy ordered nearly 4,000 black soldiers to be segregated from a federal force of 20,000 troops deployed to quell a race riot at the University of Mississippi in 1962. The information was uncovered by author William Doyle, who says the revelation is confirmed by Pentagon documents he discovered during his research.
According to Doyle, author of "An American Insurrection: The Battle of Oxford, Mississippi, 1962," The "Battle of Oxford" was centered around James Meredith's attempt to become the first black student to register at the University of Mississippi. WND's talk-radio host Geoff Metcalf recently interviewed Doyle about his surprising findings and about the true heros and scope of America's virtually unknown "civil war."

Among the revelations in tomorrow's Q&A interview is this:
"… In a secret meeting, I couldn’t believe this, I interviewed veterans of this military operation," Doyle told Metcalf. "I found hundreds of them, black and white. And they started telling me about segregating the armed forces in the field. I thought, that’s interesting I hadn’t heard that before. And they were disgraced by it, and were outraged by it 40 years later. Lo and behold, in the Pentagon files I found a memo detailing how Bobby Kennedy signed off on this obscenity … on Sept. 27, 1962, and it got implemented in a chaotic way. What you had was the spectacle of black paratroopers, Infantry, Military Police, 4,000 of them, being pulled apart, pulled out of their platoons, being stuck in rear areas and being ordered to do non-stop garbage and KP duty."
