    Prouty believes this was intentional sabotage of detente efforts by the CIA who want us to be at war forever.

    The shoot-down occurred weeks before a major peace conference that Eisenhower hoped would be his presidency's lasting legacy.

    It ensured the conference's failure. The Cold War lasted until the wall came down.

    Then, deprived of the USSR as our eternal enemy, we resorted to Gulf War I, then Somalia, Bosnia, Haiti, and now the war on terror.

    The CIA has won. We will be a nation at war forever.
