In August 1963, a powerful Washington, D.C. think tank invited President John F. Kennedy to a top-secret town hall meeting. Their stated purpose was to ascertain how much candor Americans could accept from their President, speaking off the record about the true state of the nation's affairs. It did not take President Kennedy, who was accompanied by Attorney General Robert Kennedy, long to realize that the moderators of this event, a conservative pundit, saddled at the last minute alongside a liberal firebrand who just finished law school, had brought two large political axes that they intended to grind upon his presidency. On this long, hot summer night, JFK, with less than three months to live, is forced to defend and justify his presidential decisions and actions, while also being hounded about his private life and personal morality. No reporters, no recordings, and no holds barred.
