LBJ: The Mastermind of JFK’s Assassination by Phillip F. Nelson


Book
LBJ: The Mastermind of JFK’s Assassination

The 2013 softcover edition of LBJ: The Mastermind of the JFK Assassination is now available, marking the 50 year anniversary of JFK's assassination. This is an updated version of the original Skyhorse hardcover edition, first published in 2011.
This book is about a man whose long history of criminal behavior has been documented, even in the absence of a court conviction for any of it. His underlying mental issues -- a deadly combination of personality (narcissistic and sociopathic) and psychiatric (bi-polar and paranoia) disorders, all untreated until he left the presidency, formed the manic condition with which he climbed the political ladder. His success in brazenly stealing the 1948 Senate election, followed by a series of murders gave him ever-increasing confidence to go further in his criminal activities. His involvement with the Billie Sol Estes scandals in the mid-1950s, through selling his powerful influence to facilitate the Estes frauds against the government, was widely reported on in 1962, yet he cunningly escaped indictment through sheer willpower, threats against Estes and at least five murders of men who could have connected him to the crimes, all of them still "unsolved cold cases" fifty years later. The murder of his sister Josefa was also directed by Johnson in this same period of time, according to Estes. As soon as that scandal had been swept under the rug in 1962, the Bobby Baker scandals followed in 1963, threatening to end his political career through certain censure by the Senate and Justice Department indictments to follow. The only way out for the vice president was to succeed the president, and that meant "He had to go" (which was exactly how Johnson phrased his orders to kill people who got in his way, according to U.S. Marshal Clint Peoples, who was eventually killed by persons unknown, twenty years after Johnson died).
The premise of the book, and the term "Mastermind", is that there had to have been one key person who was the single most important catalyst behind the JFK assassination who would have provided the "critical mass" required to bring all other elements together and held them together throughout the planning and execution of the 1963 coup d'etat. That person would have necessarily been someone who had the power to assure the others that they would succeed and be protected from discovery and prosecution afterwards; he would have to be someone who recruited and marshaled all the others and he would had to have influence across the federal government bureaucracy as well as the Texas state and local judicial and law enforcement agencies. Lyndon Johnson was uniquely positioned to fulfill all of these requirements and be able to provide the unifying "driving force" required to pull of "The Crime of the 20th Century."
It is an axiom in human relationships and group dynamics that such an audacious, potentially devastating trauma for the country (and the world), that would have meant death sentences for the culprits, had they been caught, would have required a powerful person behind it, who championed the cause from the start. A fundamentally important requirement was that such a singular, manic and obsessive person fill the role of the "driving force" behind would have been essential to ensure success and that person would have to be in a position to offer protection for everyone else involved (except, of course, the "patsy"). It could have therefore only succeed with such a "Mastermind" behind the wheel.
The notion that such a force could have emanated from a number of men working together to effect the murder of the president hinges on its being born and championed forcefully by multiple plotters at the same level of power. All of the men (or women) involved would have had to have been equally obsessed, similarly depraved and consistently sociopathic. Yet such a plot is not something that could have even been openly discussed among officials, certainly not deliberated at committee meetings in boardrooms on Wall Street in New York, or K Street in Washington, with votes taken according to Robert's Rules of Order, by equally responsible individuals. Such a notion falls is demonstrably improbable, at best.
Read LBJ: The Mastermind of the JFK Assassination, for the complete story of how Lyndon B. Johnson manipulated people throughout his life to perform the most vile and heinous acts, leading up to the murder of John F. Kennedy in Dallas on November 22, 1963.
Book Summary: LBJ: From Mastermind to The Colossus

Another book, a "sequel" of sorts, will be published in 2014, titled LBJ: From Mastermind to The Colossus. The new book will validate and vindicate with new evidence many of the assertions made in the first book. Furthermore, it will reveal even more of his treasonous actions as President.
The new book begins where LBJ: The Mastermind of the JFK assassination left off. It reconnects the previous themes and stories begun in the earlier book and reviews how he created a false image of himself as a great leader. The book examines Johnson's actual historical imprint which he then attempted to mitigate through pushing Congress to enact long-dormant legislation, bills that he had previously impeded, always insisting that “the timing wasn't right.” Moreover, it shows that the passage of his "Great Society" legislation was designed to take the focus of the nation off the assassination of his predecessor as well as laying the groundwork for building his own legacy.
The book also examines his planning to redirect U.S. foreign policy within days of his becoming President, as he maneuvered to insert the U.S. military into the civil war being fought in Vietnam so that he could be a wartime president; that, he thought, would provide another means to achieve his goal of becoming a "great" president. Finally, the mysterious Israeli attack on the USS Liberty in 1967 is reviewed, and evidence is presented to show that the attack was arguably facilitated – if not planned and directed – by him against his own ship and the 294 sailors on board as a means to insert the U.S. military into the Six Day War; it only failed because the Liberty refused to sink. This was not merely another “high crime and misdemeanor,” it was unspeakably treasonous, of the highest order.
Newly discovered documents from the files of Texas Ranger Clint Peoples are presented to prove that Johnson was closely involved with Billie Sol Estes, and had made millions from the Estes frauds against taxpayers. By proving that, these papers show the linkages to the worst sorts of criminal behavior existed, the very point that all other biographers of Lyndon Johnson ignore.
By ignoring those linkages, the entire “darker side” of Lyndon B. Johnson is virtually disregarded by those authors, who profess to be historically accurate yet are merely extensions of Johnson’s carefullylaid plans to ensure a faux legacy as a “great president.” His meticulous planning ability, except for Vietnam and the Liberty attack, was clearly a success, when it came time to weigh his presidency: Those same “historians” and academians generally consider him as one of the top ten presidents because of his “Great Society” achievements, including passage of a Civil Rights Bill that he had resisted when he was the Vice President, telling JFK repeatedly “the time isn’t right.” Having fought meaningful civil rights laws for over a quarter of a century, he knew that the time would only be right after he became President.


THE SINGLE BEST VIDEO EVER RECORDED about the real history of the JFK Assassination! This is about 45 minutes long, but every minute contains incredibly important background information which is key to understanding what really happened. I owe my entire "Reawakening" in 2003 about this case to having seen one of the original (of the five) 2003 broadcasts by the History Channel and realized my long-time suspicion about Johnson was correct (but the Johnson sycophants forced the History Channel to never rebroadcast it after 2003) . It was this realization that caused me to decide, three years later, to write the book. I should have acknowledged this within the book but neglected to do so, instead citing only the original sources for the same material that was used here, but it was this film that was the single "proximate cause" of the eventual book. So, Kudos to Ed Tatro, Walt Brown, Greg Burnham, Nigel Turner and all others associated with the production of this video!

Mob Hitman James Files Confesses To JFK Assassination (Again), Claims He Was Man On Grassy Knoll
James Files: JFK's Killer Or Conspiracy Kook?
Former mob hitman James Files has confessed, once again, to the JFK assassination and claims he was the man on the grassy knoll on November 22, 1963, in Dallas.


Newsmax TV aired a provocative special entitled I Killed JFK in which Files, now incarcerated at Danville Correctional Center in Danville, Illinois, says that he worked under mobster Charles “Chuckie” Nicoletti, who was an underling to mob boss Sam Giancana.

“Giancana and other mobsters had been angered by the president’s brother, Robert, who as U.S. attorney general was targeting organized crime in a major prosecution effort,” Newsmax reports.

Lee Harvey Oswald “never fired a shot,” according to Files, though he does admit that someone had shot President Kennedy prior to him squeezing off the fatal round that struck Kennedy in the temple and blew his head backward.

According to Files, it was Nicoletti who was supposed to be in the book depository and not Oswald.

“I have tried to verify Files’ story. A lot of that story I have been able to verify,” including that a shot was fired from the grassy knoll “exactly where Files said he was standing,” said former FBI agent Zack Shelton, one of two retired agents that believes the story.

So what is the James Files version of events?

Files states that shortly before the JFK assassination he “went back to the plaza, got my briefcase out with the gun in it. I went into the railroad yard, put it away where nobody could see it.”

When Kennedy’s motorcade entered Dealey Plaza and made a left turn, the President’s car cruised past a street sign in front of Files.

“That’s when I started focusing through the scope. As far as I can see at this point the President has not been hit in the head. I’ve seen the body lurch. I know he’s been hit. How serious I don’t know… But my last instructions were, ‘We’re going for head shots. If you have to take a shot take it, but don’t fire unless you really have to.’ I was aiming at his right eye. When I pulled the trigger it was almost like looking from six feet away through the scope. As I squeezed his head moved forward. I missed and got it right along the temple, right behind the eye. I squeezed off my round. I hit him and blew his head backward. I fired one shot and one shot only. I never saw Mr. Nicoletti shoot Kennedy but I know he was the man in the building who was supposed to be doing the shooting. As I was leaving Dealey Plaza nobody tried to stop me. There were two police officers within 20, 25 feet of me. I didn’t run. I just carried a natural gait and proceeded to exit, just like a businessman walking away from lunch.”

Now whether you believe James Files’ story depends largely on whether you trust Newsmax as a news source, and many people don’t believe a word of it.

Edward Bell’s takedown of Files’ story (linked above) leaves a lot of room for skepticism, and it also shows the I Killed JFK blockbuster Newsmax promised isn’t quite as groundbreaking as they would have you to believe.

After all, Files has been claiming to be the killer for years now and there have been plenty of issues with his story, as you’ll see in the report posted by Bell.

Meanwhile, check out this video uploaded in 2010 and skip to the 1:09 mark to hear Files’ first recorded confession.

The JFK Assassination: The Two Best Books Published Last Year
By Donald E. Wilkes, Jr.

http://flagpole.com/news/news-features/2014/11/26/the-jfk-assassination


As far as the assassination is concerned, it is my belief that there was a conspiracy, because there were those that disliked [President Kennedy] and felt the only way to get rid of him was to assassinate him.

—Evelyn Lincoln, JFK’s secretary


The [Dallas] motorcade route made absolutely no sense from a security standpoint.—John F. Norris, U.S. Secret Service uniformed officer


The year 2013, the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, produced scores of new books about the murder. Two of the best are Reclaiming Parkland and Survivor’s Guilt.
Reclaiming Parkland

James DiEugenio’s Reclaiming Parkland (Skyhorse Publishing) is an excellent example of the work-product of the current generation of academics and responsible researchers who, with a few exceptions, reject the Warren Report’s major conclusions, including its Oswald-was-the-lone-assassin theory, a theory which to their credit most Americans have never believed, anyway. DiEugenio, a leading authority on the assassination, founded Citizens for Truth About the Kennedy Assassination, whose website, ctka.net, is an invaluable source of information on JFK’s murder.
JFK-ReclaimingParkland.jpg
Want to know why it is likely that Lee Harvey Oswald was framed? Why Georgia’s Sen. Richard Russell, a member of the Warren Commission, thought the commission’s investigation was a dog-and-pony show? Why the FBI’s investigation of the assassination was ludicrously inadequate? Why the evidence is suspicious that Oswald ordered or possessed the Mannlicher-Carcano carbine supposedly used to shoot JFK? Why the ballistics evidence connecting Oswald to the assassination is dubious? Why the autopsy of JFK was one of the worst ever? Why the Secret Service’s failure to do its job on Nov. 22, 1963 was covered up? Why New Orleans district attorney Jim Garrison’s investigation of a 1963 New Orleans conspiracy to assassinate JFK was sabotaged by the CIA and its media assets? Why the evidence that Oswald killed policeman J.D. Tippit should not be believed? Reclaiming Parkland provides reliable explanations based on the most up-to-date information.

Survivor’s Guilt

Survivor’s Guilt: The Secret Service and the Failure to Protect President Kennedy (Trine Day), was authored by Vincent Michael Palamara, who long has been the preeminent authority on the extraordinary—and strange—acts of omission or commission by the Secret Service which made JFK’s preventable murder possible. Survivor’s Guilt not only catalogs these astonishing lapses (which were covered up for years) but also proves—shockingly—that after the assassination some of agents assigned to protect JFK took part in what Palamara calls a “blame-the-victim crusade,” in which they falsely claimed that JFK had given them directives which thwarted their efforts to protect him. And, Palamara sagely points out, “[t]o blame the deceased President after the fact is very suspicious, to say the least…”
It has long been recognized that the Secret Service failed abysmally in protecting JFK in Dallas, and Palamara thinks it possible that some Secret Service officials might have been part of a conspiracy to murder JFK. Though terrible to contemplate, this view can no longer be airily dismissed. Indeed, when interviewed by a congressional committee in 1978, a Secret Service Agent in Charge in Florida acknowledged “that, for all he knew, someone in the Secret Service could possibly have been involved in assassination.”
Here is a sampling of the disturbing facts Survivor’s Guilt brings to our attention:
• Unusually, both of the agents in charge of the presidential detail, one or the other of whom would always be at the side of JFK on trips, were taking the day off on Nov. 22, 1963, even though the Secret Service was aware of active plots to shoot JFK while he was motorcading, and even though the city he was visiting, Dallas, was known to be a hotbed of right-wing extremism and Kennedy-hating radical reactionaries. Their replacement was an agent who had never before acted in a supervisory capacity on a major presidential trip. It was this agent, sitting in the front passenger seat, who, when the shots rang out, infamously and in violation of regulations made no effort to get to, shield or warn JFK. (President Johnson later said this agent “was about as dumb as an ox.”)
• When the limousine came under fire, the agent driving the car, instead of reacting swiftly, swiveled his head twice to look back at JFK. He also committed two gross violations of regulations: He slowed down rather than speeding up, and he did not swerve the car. (At least 50 eyewitnesses, including Dallas police officers, reported that the limousine either stopped or almost stopped.) Only after JFK’s fatal headshot did the driver accelerate.
• When the shooting began, the agent in charge of the followup car five feet behind the limousine, whose job was to keep JFK in sight at all times, “[i]nstead of offering a shout of alarm, alert or orders to his agents to do something… did nothing to help the wounded president.” In fact, he ordered one of the agents who was about to rush to the limousine to remain on the followup car.
• It is well known that the night before the assassination, in violation of regulations, nine of the agents on JFK’s presidential detail, including four of the agents who ended up in the followup car on Nov. 22, had been out drinking as late as 3 a.m. (It is also now known that presidential detail agents regularly violated the no-drinking rule.)
• Numerous witnesses remarked on the sluggish response of the agents in the followup car once the shooting began. A Dallas newspaper reporter, Mary Woodward, for example, said in an interview: “I could not believe how well-trained Secret Service people could have reacted so slowly… [H]ad there been proper reaction time the man might still be alive today.”
• “JFK’s military aide, Gen. Godfrey McHugh, a devout Kennedy loyalist, was relegated to the distant VIP car in the Dallas motorcade… [McHugh] was asked by the Secret Service for the first time to ride in the back, instead, as normally [he] would do, between the driver and the Secret Service agent [in the front seat].”
• Curiously, George Burkley, JFK’s physician, who usually rode in a car not far behind the president’s limousine, was shoved into a bus located far back in the motorcade.
• In a motorcade, the president’s limousine usually would be immediately preceded by an open car or flatbed truck loaded with press photographers. In Dallas, however, for no known reason, at the last minute the press car was shoved far back in the motorcade. This meant, of course, that when the assassination occurred, press photographers could not record the event on film.
• JFK’s motorcade route through Dallas required the motorcade to proceed through, rather than bypassing Dealey Plaza, which was a dangerous place because it was surrounded by tall buildings and otherwise the perfect site for an ambush. To reach the Trade Mart, where JFK was to speak, driving through Dealey Plaza was unnecessary. Under the Dealey Plaza route, JFK’s limousine had to drive along Elm Street after first making a “slow, 120 degree turn, which was a violation of Secret Service protocol and common sense,” Palamara tells us. To this day, it is unknown who in the Secret Service made the disastrous decision to have the motorcade travel through Dealey Plaza, where JFK was the victim of hidden sniper fire. (Palamara is wrong, however, in asserting that the Dealey Plaza route was the result of a last-minute change of plans occurring between Nov. 18–20. Although it is true that the route had not been finalized as of Nov. 14, the Dealey Plaza route was adopted no later than Nov. 18, four days before the assassination.)
• In violation of regulations, the Secret Service failed to have the buildings along the motorcade route inspected and also failed to check in advance the Dealey Plaza intersection where the limousine had to make the sharp turn onto Elm.
• The day before the assassination, the Secret Service cancelled a Dallas police plan to have a car full of detectives with automatic weapons inserted into the motorcade two or three cars behind the presidential limousine.
• Also the day before the assassination, and most unusually, the Secret Service weakened escort security by ordering that the number of police motorcycles in the motorcade be reduced, and by directing that the motorcycles near the limousine should not flank it but instead position themselves at its rear. This meant that JFK was significantly less protected than he had been the day before when motorcading through San Antonio, a much less dangerous locale. As a congressional committee acknowledged in 1979, “The Secret Service deprived Kennedy of security in Dallas that it had provided a mere day before.”
• Prior to the assassination, the Secret Service knew of recent threats on the life of JFK and of active plots to kill him. In fact, “the White House detail had a pretty good idea that somebody had been stalking [JFK] for a long time.” (Palamara adds: “The odd, preternatural obsession JFK had with death that developed right before Dallas was likely due to his knowledge, directly or indirectly, of the threats on his life.”)
• The Secret Service’s claim that its Protective Research Section disclosed no “subjects of record” who might pose a danger to JFK in Dallas “is simply impossible,” given the city’s “rabid right-wing environment… and countless other threats.”
Reclaiming Parkland and Survivor’s Guilt are among the multiple reasons why it should now be evident to Americans that they were hornswoggled by the Warren Report when it claimed there was no conspiracy behind the JFK assassination and whitewashed the suspicious behavior of the Secret Service before and on Nov. 22, 1963.

JFK Assassination Review

See also Kermit Hall, " The Kennedy Assassination in the Age of Open Secrets", OAH Newsletter, 25 (February).
One year ago, Kermit Hall reported some of the findings of the JFK Assassination Records Review Board in the OAH Newsletter. The board has since been hard at work opening and processing relevant documents. Many of them were released last November, and are published here for the first time. In addition to the noteworthy reaction of Soviet officials to the President's death, the documents also reveal U.S. plots against the Cuban government that had approval at the highest levels in this country. The following notes were provided by Anna Nelson, one of the Review Board members. Transcriptions of the original documents follow Professor Nelson's notes.

Note: Facscimiles of the documents which are referred to in the text are not yet online.

Document One
This is an FBI document that illustrates the information originally "redacted" and the document as it now appears. It is an interesting document because it discusses Soviet reaction to the assassination It also illustrates the FBI at work at counter-espionage.

Document Two
The body of this document which describes the substance of a Communist party meeting in Steubenville, Ohio was opened but the first page was almost completely black. This page lists sources of FBI information. It is interesting, not only because the meeting discusses the assassination but because the FBI was concerned about the meeting of 7 people (at least three of whom were FBI sources).

Document Three
This is one of the CIA documents describing their operations in Mexico City (noted by symbol LI) and Oswald's trip there in October 1963. CIA had covered all the information between the brackets so the reader, for example, would not know the source was a double agent. This document also illustrates the use of substitute language for sensitive operations. In this case, "designated meeting times" has been substituted to protect the vulnerable agents still in Mexico or Cuba.

Document Four
This document from the National Security Agency indicates that as early as Dec. 6, 1963, John J. McCloy, a member of the Warren Commission, had misgivings about the "credibility" of that investigation. The original release completely obscured this information.

Documents Five, Six, and Seven
These documents are part of a larger body of material released by the Department last November. Five is from the Papers of Joseph Califano, who was a special assistant and counsel to the Secretary of the Army. Six and Seven come from the Joint Chiefs of Staff. They are of great interest because they illustrate that the CIA was not the only agency plotting the demise of Fidel Castro. While Five has samples of their ideas, Six indicates that the President approved the anti-Castro efforts. Seven has special interest because it is dated after the Cuban Missile Crisis and only five months before Kennedy's death. These pages are small examples of the countless meetings and papers on Cuba within the Defense Department in 1962-63.

REACTION OF SOVIET AND COMMUNIST PARTY OFFICIALS TO THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY


A source who has furnished reliable information in the past and who was in Russia on the date of the assassination of the late President John F. Kennedy advised on December 4, 1963, that the news of the assassination of President Kennedy was flashed to the Soviet people almost immediately after its occurrence. It was greeted by great shock and consternation and church bells were tolled in the memory of President Kennedy.

According to our source, officials of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union believed there was some well-organized conspiracy on the part of the "ultraright" in the United States to effect a "coup." They seemed convinced that the assassination was not the deed of one man, but that it rose out of a carefully planned campaign in which several people played a part. They felt those elements interested in utilizing the assassination and playing on anticommunist sentiments in the United States would then utilize this act to stop negotiations with the Soviet Union, attack Cuba and thereafter spread the war. As a result of these feelings, the Soviet Union immediately went into a state of national alert.

Our source further stated that Soviet officials were fearful that without leadership, some irresponsible general in the United States might launch a missile at the Soviet Union. It was the further opinion of the Soviet officials that only maniacs would think that the "left" forces in the United States, as represented by the Communist Party, USA, would assassinate President Kennedy, especially in view of the abuse the Communist Party, USA, has taken from the "ultraleft" as a result of its support of peaceful coexistence and disarmament policies of the Kennedy administration.

REACTION OF SOVIET AND COMMUNIST PARTY OFFICIALS TO THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY


According to our source, Soviet officials claimed that Lee Harvey Oswald had no connection whatsoever with the Soviet Union. They described him as a neurotic maniac who was disloyal to his own country and everything else. They noted that Oswald never belonged to any organization in the Soviet Union and was never given Soviet citizenship.

(CG 5824-S*)

A second source who has furnished reliable information in the past advised on November 27, 1963, that Nikolai T. Fedorenko, the Permanent Representative to the Soviet Mission to the United Nations, held a brief meeting with all diplomatic personnel employed at the Soviet Mission on November 23, 1963. During this meeting, Fedorenko related for the benefit of all present the news of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and stated that Kennedy's death was very much regretted by the Soviet Union and had caused considerable shock in Soviet Government circles. Fedorenko stated that the Soviet Union would have preferred to have had President Kennedy at the helm of the American Government. He added that President Kennedy had, to some degree, a mutual understanding with the Soviet Union, and had tried seriously to improve relations between the United States and Russia. Fedorenko also added that little or nothing was known by the Soviet Government concerning President Lyndon Johnson and, as a result, the Soviet Government did not know what policies President Johnson would follow in the future regarding the Soviet Union.

According to our source, Colonel Boris Ivanov, Chief of the Soviet Committee for State Security (KGB) Residency in New York City, held a meeting of KGB personnel on the morning of November 25, 1963. Ivanov informed those present that President Kennedy's death had posed a problem for the KGB and stated that it was necessary for all KGB employees to lend their efforts to solving the problem.

According to our source, Ivanov stated that it was his personal feeling that the assassination of President Kennedy had been planned by an organized group rather than being the act of one individual assassin. Ivanov stated that it was therefore necessary that the KGB ascertain with the greatest possible speed the true story surrounding President Kennedy's assassination. Ivanov stated that the KGB was interested in knowing all the factors and all of the possible groups which might have worked behind the scenes to organize and plan this assassination.

REACTION OF SOVIET AND COMMUNIST PARTY OFFICIALS TO THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY


Our source added that Ivanov also emphasized that it was of extreme importance to the Soviet Government to determine precisely what kind of man the new President Lyndon Johnson would be. Ivanov said that President Johnson was practically an unknown to the Soviet Government and, accordingly, the KGB had issued instructions to all of its agents to immediately obtain all data available concerning the incumbent President. Ivanov said that it would be necessary for KGB personnel to gather and correlate all information concerning President Johnson, including his background, his past working experience and record in Congress, his present attitude toward the Soviet Union, and particularly all information which might have bearing upon the future foreign policy line he would follow (NY 3653-S*)

On September 16, 1965, this same source reported that the KGB Residency in New York City received instructions approximately September 16, 1965, from KGB headquarters in Moscow to develop all possible information concerning President Lyndon B. Johnson's character, background, personal friends, family, and from which quarters he derives his support in his position as President of the United States. Our source added that in the instructions from Moscow, it was indicated that "now" the KGB was in possession of data purporting to indicate President Johnson was responsible for the assassination of the late President John F. Kennedy. KGB headquarters indicated that in view of this information, it was necessary for the Soviet Government to know the existing personal relationship between President Johnson and the Kennedy family, particularly between President Johnson and Robert and "Ted" Kennedy.

On March 3, 1964, Yuri I. Nosenko, Soviet defector whose bona fides has not been established, advised that he was handling Soviet Committee for State Security (KGB) investigations of tourists from the United States at the time Lee Harvey Oswald visited Russia in 1959, and consequently was fully cognizant of the Lee Harvey Oswald case.

According to Nosenko, Oswald came to the attention of the KGB when he expressed a wish to defect to the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics shortly after his arrival in Russia. However, the KGB, after inquiry, decided he was mentally unstable and informed him he had to return to the United States upon completion of his visit. Thereafter, when Oswald missed a sight-seeing tour he was to take, his hotel room was forced open and he was found with one of his wrists badly cut.

Cincinnati, Ohio

December 16, 1963


On December 2, 1963, a source, who has furnished reliable information in the past, advised that on November 20, 1963, Genne Kuhn, Wheeling, West Virginia, who has previously been identified by the source as Chairman of the lower Ohio Valley Section of the Communist Party, stated that Anthony Krchmarek, head of the Communist Party in Ohio, and an Arnold, last name not mentioned, had recently visited her. She did not give the date of this visit. She stated that Krchmarek and Arnold spoke to an assembly of students at Bethany College, and that after the meeting, they were invited to a cocktail party, where Socialism was discussed until the small hours of the morning. She said that there was no show of contempt or any hard feelings, only friendliness[.] She stated Krchmarek and Arnold are to return Sunday, December 8, 1963, at 6:30 P.M., and desire to discuss matters dealing with the coal unions.

On December 2, 1963, another source, who has furnished reliable information in the past, advised that on November 15, 1963, Arnold Johnson and Anthony Krchmarek had stopped in Steubenville, Ohio, that day, and spoke at Bethany College in West Virginia. Source states that Anthony Krchmarek, at a recent meeting, had spoken of Arnold Johnson procuring speakers for college engagements.

The same source stated that on November 18, 1963, Arnold Johnson and Anthony Krchmarek again visited Steubenville, Ohio, to arrange for a meeting "down the river" on December 8, 1963, and to postpone a meeting scheduled for Steubenville on November 22, 1963, to December 13, 1963. After making these arrangements, they returned to Cleveland, Ohio.

In conversation with me, MCCLOY, a member of the presidential commission stated that he has serious doubts of the credibility of the investigation to date. He does not eliminate the possibility that the attempt on KENNEDY was made by two persons. However, in view of JOHNSON's order that the commission investigate also the circumstances of OSWALD's slaying, some of the commission's operations and its report could come after RUBY's trial and perhaps even after the verdict and appeals. In the meantime the trial was postponed until 3 January [sic], and the FBI released to the press information that their investigation confirms OSWALD's guilt, and that he had no accomplices.

Possible Actions to Provoke, Harrass [sic], of Disrupt Cuba


1. Operation SMASHER:

a. Objective: The objective is to disrupt/disable military and commercial communications facilities in Cuba.

b. Concept: This to be accomplished by the clandestine introduction of a "special" vacuum tube into selected communications equipment. The tube, which is available, is virtually undetectable inasmuch as its effectiveness is due to the insertion of a chemical compound in the base of the tube. The chemical, when heated becomes a conductor, when cooled a non-conductor.

2. Operation FREE RIDE:

a. Objective: The objective is to create unrest and dissension among the Cuban people.

b. Concept: This to be accomplished by airdropping valid Pan American or KLM one-way airline tickets good for passage to Mexico City, Caracas, etc. (none to the U.S.). Tickets could be intermixed with other leaflets planned to be dropped. The number of tickets dropped could be increased. The validity of the tickets would have to be restricted to a time period.

3. Operation TURN ABOUT:

a. Objective: The objective is to create indications to Fidel Castro that his value to the revolutionary cause has diminished to the point where plans are being made for his "removal".

b. Concept: This to be accomplished by the use of intelligence means the crecendo [sic] increasing until it culminates in Castro's discovery of the mechanism or hardware.

4. Operation DEFECTOR:

a. Objective: To induce elements or individuals of the Cuban military to defect with equipment.

b. Concept: This activity when properly planned and implemented has the effect of decreasing military capability. In a totalitarian system the immediate reaction is increased security accompanied by decreased activity. It also creates havoc in security and intelligence agencies. Could be accomplished by intelligence means and promise of rewards.

5. Operation BREAK-UP:

a. Objective: To clandestinely introduce corrosive materials to cause aircraft, vehicle or boat accidents.

b. Concept: This activity, if possible should be aimed primarily toward the Soviet-provided aircraft. If properly accomplished it would degrade confidence in the equipment, increase supply and maintenance problems and seriously affect combat capability.

6. Operation COVER-UP:

a. Objective: The objective is to convince the Communist government of Cuba that Naval Forces ostensibly assigned to the MERCURY project is merely a cover.

b. Concept: It should not be revealed as to what the cover is--this should be left to conjecture. This could tie in with Operation DIRTY TRICK.

7. Operation DIRTY TRICK:

a. Objective: The objective is to provide irrevocable proof that, should the MERCURY manned orbit flight fail, the fault lies with the Communists et al Cuba.

b. Concept: This to be accomplished by manufacturing various pieces of evidence which would prove electronic interference on the part of the Cubans.

8. Operation FULL-UP:

a. Objective: The objective is to destroy confidence in fuel supplied by the Soviet Bloc by indicating it is contaminated.

B. Concept: This to be accomplished by introducing a known biological agent into jet fuel storage facilities. This agent flourishes in jet fuel and grows until it consumes all the space inside the tank.

9. Operation PHANTOM:

a. Objective: The objective is to convince the Castro Government that clandestine penetration and resupply of agents is being is being regularly conducted.

b. Concept: This to be accomplished by use of BJ, UDT, AND JJ capabilities to create the impression that landings have been made on beaches and air drops have been made in other areas.

10. Operation BINGO:

a. Objective: The objective is to create an incident which has the appearance of an attack on U.S. facilities (GMO) in Cuba, thus providing the excuse for use of U.S. might to overthrow the current government of Cuba.

b. Concept: This to be accomplished by the use of SNAKES outside the confines of the Guantanamo Base. SNAKES simulate an actual fire-fight and upon hearing such a sound it is entirely feasible that the immediate reaction on G'Mo would be that the base is being attacked. This would, with proper preparation, be followed by a counterattack and with adequate planning the base at G'Mo could disgorge military force in sufficient number to sustain itself until other forces, which had been previously alerted, could attack in other areas. It is envisaged that a schedule of operations similar to the following would overwhelm the Cuban military and cause its defeat:

(1) Simulated attack on Guantanamo.

(2) Word flashed to the President.

(3) President orders counterattack to include:

(a) Immediate launch of alerted aircraft whose targets are Cuban airfields.

(b) Immediate launch of counterattack down strategic lines in communication in Cuba.

(c) Fleet force standing by on alert would make way toward pre-selected targets/landing areas.

(d) Immediate embarkation of airborne troops previously alerted to pre-selected targets.

(e) Launch of additional combat aircraft to clear drop areas and further interdict lines of communication.

(f) Ships and aircraft would land/airdrops troops and secure airfields, road/rail terminals, etc.

Mr. Gilpatric did not like this paper at all. He indica[ted] the paper was too negative and restricted as though a policy towards an enemy like we are dealing with the Germans or Itali[ans,] not a fellow department of our Government. This is a red line operation with the blessing of the President and approved by him as a most important task. This is probably the most important mission we have in the government today. When a request comes in from CIA, you (Craig) will evaluate it and request the Joint Chiefs of Staff for their evaluation and recommendations. The Secretary of Defense will determine, after considering the advice of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, wha[t] the decision will be, not the Joint Chiefs of Staff. This decision is the prerogative of the Secretary of Defense.

We do not want to get involved in a case-by-case basis, do not want individual actions on each case. We do not want masses of individual actions. This is a red line priority problem and must be handled with dispatch and without getting involved in minutia regarding expenses and reimbursement or other details. Department of Defense may have to do it themse[lves] regardless who foots the bill. In some cases, CIA will be required to reimburse if so determined by the Secretary of Defense. This is a matter which must be decided by the Secretary of Defense - not the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The Department of Defense budgets for some CIA support. We have equipment of some types lying around not being used and should not require reimbursement for this type, as a general rule.

Subject: Proposed Covert Policy and Integrated Program of Action Toward Cuba


1. At TAB A is a CIA memorandum concerning a program of action against Cuba to include sabotage by hit-and-run raids, which was to be presented to the NSC Standing Group on 14 June. At TAB B is the talking paper prepared to support you in discussing this CIA memorandum at the Standing Group meeting. The meeting, as you will recall, was cancelled [sic].

3. This could conceivably expand into an operation of substantial size requiring broad, unprogrammed [sic] support from the military. Accordingly, I recommend that at the next meeting of the Standing Group you request that CIA be directed to present to the Department of Defense a summary of CIA requirements for military support of the approved sabotage raid program.


V.H. KRULAK

Major General, USMC

SACSA



MEMORANDUM FOR THE STANDING GROUP OF THE NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL


SUBJECT: Proposed Covert Policy and Integrated Program of Action towards Cuba


I. Introduction

1. Submitted herewith is a covert program for Cuba within CIA's capabilities. Some parts of the program have already been approved and are being implemented. Being closely inter-related, the total cumulative impact of the courses of action set forth in this program is dependent upon the simultaneous coordinated execution of the individual courses of action.

2. This program is based on the assumption that current U.S. policy does not contemplate outright military intervention in Cuba or a provocation which can be used as a pretext for an invasion of Cuba by United States military forces. It is further assumed that U.S. policy calls for the exertion of maximum pressure by all means available to the U.S. Government, short of military intervention, to prevent the pacification of the population and the consolidation of the Castro/Communist regime. The ultimate objective of this policy would be to encourage dissident elements in the military and other power centers of the regime to bring about the eventual liquidation of the Castro/Communist entourage and the elimination of the Soviet presence from Cuba.

3. While the effect of a program of maximum pressure is unpredictable, it is suggested that a sustained intensive effort undertaken now to prevent the consolidation of the Castro/Communist regime may in the future present the United States with opportunities and options not now foreseeable. The consequences of a policy of allowing Castro to "stew in his own juice," however, are foreseeable. According to current estimates, barring Castro's death or a decisive change in the U.S. posture or Soviet policy toward Cuba, the Castro regime is likely to be more firmly established a year hence, despite possible economic setbacks. The mere passage of time tends to favor Castro as the population and elite groups in Cuba become accustomed to the idea that he is here to stay and as his regime gains in administrative experience and the security organs become more efficient. Over the long run, the existence of an organized party apparatus as well as a stable governmental machinery could reduce the indispensability of Castro's personal leadership. Thus, if left to chance, the U.S. must be prepared to accept for the indefinite future a Communist regime in Cuba closely tied to and a significant component of the Soviet world power structure.

4. Within the context of the policy assumptions and estimate of the situation in Cuba outlined above, CIA submits a program consisting of the following interdependent courses of action:

A. Covert collection of intelligence, both for U.S. strategic requirements as well as for operational requirements.

B. Propaganda actions to stimulate low-risk simple sabotage and other forms of active and passive resistance.

C. Exploitation and stimulation of disaffection in the Cuban military and other power centers.

D. Economic denial actions on an increased basis.

E. General sabotage and harassment.

F. Support of autonomous anti-Castro Cuban groups to supplement and assist in the execution of the above courses of action.

5. A vital feature of the foregoing program to exert maximum pressure on the Castro/Communist regime is the dependence of the impact of each course of action on the simultaneous and effective execution of the other courses of action.

Could Robert F. Kennedy's Assassin Have Been 'Hypno-Programmed'?
Eli MacKinnon, Life's Little Mysteries Contributor
Date: 13 December 2011 Time: 04:30 PM ET

This past March, 42 years into his life prison sentence for assassinating Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, Sirhan Sirhan stood in front of a parole board and repeated the same thing he had been saying at parole hearings for decades: that he had no memory of the shooting or his subsequent trial and confession of guilt. For the 14th time, his application was denied. Two weeks ago, Sirhan's attorneys filed the latest in a series of appeals that aim to get Sirhan back in front of a judge to correct what they call "an egregious miscarriage of justice."
Sirhan, they argued, had been hypnotized to carry out the crime.
In addition to presenting expert audio analysis indicating that there were two guns fired from different directions and a claim that a bullet from Kennedy's neck was switched out to match Sirhan's gun, the filings bolster a long-repeated conspiracy theory asserting that Sirhan was a victim of hypnosis, an unwitting shill whose Arab name made him an easy scapegoat and drew attention from the true architects of the assassination. According to the new pleadings, "[Sirhan] was an involuntary participant in the crimes being committed because he was subjected to sophisticated hypno-programing and memory implantation techniques which rendered him unable to consciously control his thoughts and actions at the time the crimes were being committed." [Where Do Murderous Tendencies Come From?]

Anticipating the skeptical firewall that the phrase "hypno-programming" raises in many inquiring minds, the filings also maintain that, "The public has been shielded from the darker side of the practice. The average person is unaware that hypnosis can and is used to induct antisocial conduct in humans."
If nothing else, Sirhan's lawyers may be right about a general lack of public awareness on the true potential of hypnosis. According to Dr. Richard Kluft, a clinical professor of psychiatry at Temple University and the past-president of the Society for Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis, the scenario that Sirhan's legal team advances is "certainly within the realm of plausibility."
To put the seemingly far-fetched theory into context, Kluft notes that it is undisputed and freely available information that U.S. government security agencies have extensively researched the possibility of creating so-called "hypnotic assassins" and "hypnotic couriers." (A hypnotic courier would theoretically memorize a classified message while under hypnosis and then only be able to retrieve that information if provided with the proper post-hypnotic cue by the message's intended recipient, thus eliminating the possibility that the agent could divulge the information if captured and tortured.) Information on whether and how covert organizations have put the findings of their hypnosis research — such as that conducted in the CIA's allegedly discontinued human experimentation program MKULTRA — to use, however, is harder to obtain.
According to Kluft, it is not possible to hypnotize someone to do something that obviously violates their beliefs or desires. In hypnosis, though, context is everything. Say, for example, an unethical hypnotist wanted to hypnotize a suggestible vegetarian to eat a steak. If the hypnotist simply put the vegetarian into a state of hypnosis and then presented him or her with a steak, identified it as a steak, and told the person to eat it, the hypnotized vegetarian would almost certainly refuse.
But if the hypnotist put a vegetarian into a state of hypnosis and then made repeated misleading suggestions that in a short period of time a waiter would deliver a mouth-watering, mock-meat, soy-based protein slab that would be both delicious and meat-free, and then proceeded to order genuine filet mignon, the vegetarian would probably be more amenable to taking a bite.
The very uncomfortable and very serious question, then, is whether an exceptionally suggestible human brain, manipulated in just the right way, might be seduced by its delusions into committing an act far beyond the violation of a dietary code — namely, gunning down a gifted politician in the early stages of an auspicious bid for the American presidency. Could a hypno-programmed Sirhan Sirhan really have fired on Kennedy if he didn't actually want to?
There is not a simple answer. It is all but inconceivable that Sirhan could have been picked up off the street and then successfully hypnotized to kill against his will after one session with a master hypnotist, but if hypnosis is combined with brainwashing regimens and used to make persistent suggestions that a subject misperceive external circumstances and re-contextualize personal beliefs, its limits are not well defined, Kluft said.
"Post-hypnotic subjects can be induced to misunderstand their circumstances and, as a result of them misunderstanding their circumstances, do and say some things that are very likely to be potentially detrimental and injurious," said Kluft, careful to note that he cannot speculate on Sirhan's past or present mental state specifically, as he has not personally evaluated him. "In the most general sense, you can't make a person do something against their principles with hypnosis, but you can deceive them as to what's truly the case so that they may wind up doing something that they themselves regard as reprehensible but that they did under circumstances of not really getting the whole picture."
It would be very unlikely for an appeal be granted based solely on new evidence of hypnosis in a crime that occurred more than 40 years ago, said Stephen J. Morse, a professor of law and psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania. But if Sirhan's attorneys do manage to win their client a re-trial based on any of their latest allegations, proof that he was in a state of hypnosis at the time of Kennedy's assassination would absolve him of responsibility. "All crimes require some prohibited act as one of the elements," Morse explained. "In most American jurisdictions, an act performed under hypnosis is not considered an '

Sirhan Sirhan loses bid for freedom over RFK death

Tue Jan 6, 2015 2:44pm EST


- Sirhan Sirhan, who is serving a life sentence in prison for the June 1968 assassination of presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, failed to persuade a federal judge to set him free because he was innocent of the crime.

In a decision dated Monday, U.S. District Judge Beverly Reid O'Connell in Los Angeles said Sirhan "failed to meet the showing required for actual innocence" that might excuse his having failed to seek his freedom sooner in federal court.

Sirhan had filed his petition for habeas corpus, which could have resulted in his freedom, in May 2000.

William Pepper, a lawyer for Sirhan, did not immediately respond on Tuesday to requests for comment.

Sirhan, now 70, was wrestled to the ground with a gun in his hand after Kennedy was shot on June 5, 1968, at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, shortly after Kennedy won the California Democratic presidential primary. Kennedy died the next day.

The defendant was sentenced to death in 1969, but his sentence was commuted to life in prison after California banned the death penalty. Sirhan was denied parole for a 13th time in 2011. He is now housed in a state prison in San Diego.

In seeking Sirhan's freedom, defense lawyers argued that he had not been physically in position to fire the fatal shot, and that a second shooter and gun may have been responsible.

The judge, however, said Sirhan's case was not strong enough.

"Though petitioner advances a number of theories regarding the events of June 5, 1968, petitioner does not dispute that he fired eight rounds of gunfire in the kitchen pantry of the Ambassador Hotel," O'Connell wrote. "Petitioner does not show that it is more likely than not that no juror, acting reasonably, would have found him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt."

In rejecting Sirhan's bid for freedom, O'Connell accepted an August 2013 recommendation by U.S. Magistrate Judge Andrew Wistrich.

Kennedy was a U.S. senator from New York when he died at age 42. His older brother John F. Kennedy, the former U.S. president, was 46 when he was assassinated in November 19

What the Warren Commission Didn’t Know
A member of the panel that investigated JFK’s death now worries he was a victim of a “massive cover-up.”
By PHILIP SHENON February 02, 2015

Half a century after the Warren Commission concluded there was no conspiracy in John F. Kennedy’s assassination, the commission’s chief conspiracy hunter believes the investigation was the victim of a “massive cover-up” to hide evidence that might have shown that Lee Harvey Oswald was in fact part of a conspiracy. In new, exclusive material published today in the paperback edition of a bestselling history of the investigation, retired law professor David Slawson tells how he came to the conclusion, on the basis of long-secret documents and witness statements, that the commission might have gotten it wrong.

Production Complete!
We have completed production of the DVD from our conference, Warren Commission 50 Years Later: A Critical Examination. Ed Sproul, who handled the AV and the videotaping process at the conference, did an outstanding job producing this DVD! Before the conference we consulted people from around the country about how to go about this and we put a much larger investment in terms of the types of equipment we used. As a result, I think that the DVD will be much better than our effort from our 2013 conference and many other recent JFK conferences. We are anticipating a ship date of February 16th for the first orders. If you have not yet ordered a copy we encourage you to do so, and also hope that you will get the word out to others who might be interested. We now have Paypal available on the website if you wish to order it in advance or you can mail us a check to David Denton JFK Historical Group, 1305 Hall St. Olney Il, 62450. To those who have already paid for the DVD we will send it out as soon as it's ready.

#1 The Most Important Error the FBI told the Warren Commission about the Rifle: post #1 Robert Prudhomme


http://educationforum.ipbhost.com/index.php?showtopic=21636


Posted 18 January 2015 - 11:36 PM
As we have discussed, SA Robert A. Frazier was the FBI's leading firearms expert, performed all of the FBI's tests on the alleged assassination weapon and presented his findings in testimony to the Warren Commission in 1964.

It has been my experience that it is remarkably easy to find glaring mistakes in Mr. Frazier's testimony, to the point I have begun to suspect he almost wanted someone to see through the FBI's charade.

To whom it concerns (and others who may care to learn),

Following is a compendium of recent announcements, as well as links to
various and supplementary pages on the web, that are all relating
(either directly or indirectly) to organized plans for a theatrical
performance at The Harlem Stage in New York City, scheduled for April
25th, 2015, of Court Dorsey's play "Project Unspeakable," which is one
of two different scripts -- along with that by Ginny Cunningham, whose
own play is titled "Noah's Ark," both of which are inspired by -- and
are based upon -- the 2008 historical documentation of those events
which occurred in Dallas, Texas on November 22nd, 1963, including
other events which ensued, amongst the various results of what had
taken place in Dallas on that infamous day. The book that inspired,
and on which both these plays are based, was authored by James W.
("Jim") Douglass, which is entitled...

"JFK and The Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters."

" . . . .

“The Unspeakable” is a term Thomas Merton coined at the heart of the
sixties after JFK’s assassination — in the midst of the escalating
Vietnam War, the nuclear arms race, and the further assassinations of
Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, and Robert Kennedy. In each of those
soul-shaking events Merton sensed an evil whose depth and deceit
seemed to go beyond the capacity of words to describe.

“One of the awful facts of our age,” Merton wrote in 1965, “is the
evidence that [the world] is stricken indeed, stricken to the very
core of its being by the presence of the Unspeakable.” The Vietnam
War, the race to a global war, and the interlocking murders of John
Kennedy, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, and Robert Kennedy were all
signs of the Unspeakable. It remains deeply present in our world. As
Merton warned, “Those who are at present so eager to be reconciled
with the world at any price must take care not to be reconciled with
it under this particular aspect: as the nest of the Unspeakable. This
is what too few are willing to see.”[4]

When we become more deeply human, as Merton understood the process,
the wellspring of our compassion moves us to confront the Unspeakable.

Matters..." pg. xv

“ . . . .

At the height of the Cold War, JFK risked committing the greatest
crime in human history: starting a nuclear war. Horrified by the
specter of nuclear annihilation, Kennedy gradually turned away from
his long-held Cold Warrior beliefs and toward a policy of lasting
peace. But to the military and intelligence agencies in the United
States, who were committed to winning the Cold War at any cost,
Kennedy’s change of heart was a direct threat to their power and
influence. Once these dark "Unspeakable" forces recognized that
Kennedy’s interests were in direct opposition to their own, they
tagged him as a dangerous traitor, plotted his assassination, and
orchestrated the subsequent cover-up.

Douglass takes readers into the Oval Office during the tense days of
the Cuban Missile Crisis, along on the strange journey of Lee Harvey
Oswald and his shadowy handlers, and to the winding road in Dallas
where an ambush awaited the President’s motorcade. As Douglass
convincingly documents, at every step along the way these forces of
the Unspeakable were present, moving people like pawns on a chessboard
to promote a dangerous and deadly agenda.

Bill O’Reilly busted: ‘Phony’ Fox News star ‘lied’ about JFK murder witness
Published time: February 25, 2015 20:19


Conservative TV host Bill O’Reilly has been caught repeatedly lying about being present at the suicide of a key JFK assassination investigation witness, a week after he was accused of exaggerating the dangers he faced reporting from the Falklands War.

"Bill O'Reilly's a phony, there's no other way to put it," Tracy Rowlett, who worked with O’Reilly at a local Dallas WFAA station during the alleged incident, told Media Matters, an online news website.

READ MORE:‘Combat zone tales’: Fox News’ O’Reilly in 10-minute rant, another journo speaks out

The suicide victim is George de Mohrenschildt, a picaresque Russian émigré, who was on friendly terms with both the family of Jackie Kennedy and the assassin of John F. Kennedy, Lee Harvey Oswald. He reportedly cooperated for decades with the CIA.

O’Reilly vividly describes going out to question de Mohrenschildt just hours before his death in 'Killing Kennedy,' a bestselling investigative book he published in 2012. He has also recounted the incident on his Fox News program.

“In March 1977 a young television reporter at WFAA in Dallas began looking into the Kennedy assassination. As part of his reporting he sought an interview with the shadowy Russian college professor who had befriended the Oswalds upon their arrival in Dallas in 1962,” O’Reilly wrote in 'Killing Kennedy,” one of nearly twenty “non-fiction” tomes he has authored.

“The reporter traced de Mohrenschildt to Palm Beach, Florida and travelled there to confront him. At the time de Mohrenschildt had been called to testify before a congressional committee looking into the events of November 1963. As the reporter knocked on the door of de Mohrenschildt’s daughter’s home, he heard the shotgun blast that marked the suicide of the Russian, assuring that his relationship with Lee Harvey Oswald would never be fully understood.”

“By the way, that reporter’s name is Bill O’Reilly.”

While the just-too-late arrival makes for a dramatic narrative, there are multiple witnesses to prove that O’Reilly’s story is completely untrue.

"He was not up on the porch when he heard the gunshots, he was in Dallas. He wasn't traveling at that time," said Rowlett.

"I don't remember O'Reilly claiming that he was there. That came later, that must have been a brain surge when he was writing the book."

Another WFAA reporter went even further.

“He stole that article out of the newspaper. I guarantee Channel 8 didn't send him to Florida to do that story because it was a newspaper story, it was broken by the Dallas Morning News," said Byron Harris, who is still at the Dallas TV station.

In fact, O’Reilly’s anecdote was initially questioned two years ago, when the JFK Facts website compared his retelling with the publicly available phone recordings of Gaeton Fonzi, the congressional investigator who was due to question de Mohrenschildt when he killed himself.

The vaults contain a conversation between Fonzi and O’Reilly hours after the Russian aristocrat’s death, in which the journalist – who obviously knows nothing about the details of the suicide – clearly fishes for any leads, while admitting he has been researching the story by phone, and saying he was only planning to come to Florida.
O'Reilly 'tired of all the garbage'

A reporter’s aggrandizing yarn from nearly four decades ago might have been allowed to slip unnoticed, if O’Reilly hadn’t already been under fire for poor journalistic ethics, and hadn’t denied the charges with such indignant vehemence – and threats.

Read moreFox News' Bill O'Reilly under fire over ‘combat zone tales’ accusations

In the wake of the lying charges against NBC anchor Brian Williams, left-leaning Mother Jones decided to dig up dirt on an icon of the Right. Last week, the magazine published a story questioning O’Reilly’s frequent claims that he was in a “combat situation” during the 1982 Falklands conflict.

As it turns out, O’Reilly never visited the Falklands during the war with the UK, but was merely present at a demonstration in Buenos Aires where bullets were fired, after the Argentinian junta surrendered. Moreover, no one was prepared to back up another O’Reilly tale that he “rescued” a wounded cameraman during the incident.

On his program, O’Reilly called David Corn, the author of the article, “a guttersnipe” and “a piece of garbage” who deserves to be “in the kill zone.”

When a New York Times reporter contacted him for a follow-up story, the 65-year-old host purportedly responded with the following quote: “I am coming after you with everything I have. You can take it as a threat.”

Notably, despite refuting the first wave of reports by releasing the footage he shot in 1982, he tried to draw a line under the accusations on Tuesday.

“On a personal note, I’m pretty tired of all the garbage. I think I can say,

During his 30 years with the FBI, C. Ray Hall investigated bank robberies, tracked down fugitives and interrogated suspects. He was a polygraph examiner and a firearms and police instructor.

On Nov. 24, 1963, he was selected to interview Jack Ruby, shortly after the nightclub owner had gunned down Lee Harvey Oswald.

Hall, 96, died Saturday of heart disease at his Dallas home.

Services will be at 2 p.m. Friday at Wilshire Baptist Church in Dallas, where he was a member. He will be buried in Denison Cemetery in Idabel, Okla.

“He had a wonderful gift of discernment. He knew people,” said his son Thomas R. Hall of Dallas.

“My father was a Baptist who would speak to Baptists in the liquor store,” he said. “He enjoyed people, he found humor in them, he liked people, he was entertained by people — all kinds.”

Hall questioned Ruby for five hours the day of the shooting. What did Hall think about Ruby?

“In a few words, he thought he was crazy,” Thomas Hall said.

In 1964, Hall testified before the Warren Commission about his questioning of Ruby. In 1976, he was subpoenaed to testify before the House Select Committee on Assassinations.

“He said he wasn’t coming,” his son said. “If they wanted for him to read his notes that he took at the time ... and pay his expenses, he would go.

“He said, ‘Why would I remember anything today that I didn’t put in my reports back then?’ ”

Hall was born in Broken Bow, Okla., and grew up in nearby Idabel, where he graduated from high school in 1936. He served in the Navy from 1936 to 1940.

He worked his way through Southern Methodist University as a full-time night clerk with the FBI. Taking classes at SMU and by correspondence, he received a bachelor’s degree in finance and accounting from SMU in December 1942.

In 1941, he married Ann Rachel, his high school sweetheart. Mrs. Hall died in 2005.

Hall was with the FBI in three Southern states and assigned to New York, Wisconsin and Oklahoma before coming to Dallas in 1956.

In the 1950s, Hall was an FBI firearms and police school instructor in Dallas.

“That was probably the most dangerous job he said he ever had,” Thomas Hall said. At the time, recruits often had no firearms experience, he said. “They weren’t like the trained police officers we have today.”

Hall retired in 1969. He was then the Dallas-area security manager for Safeway stores for 15 years.

In retirement, Hall lived in Dal

UPDATE & CLARIFICATION FROM DAVID DENTON:











Subject: Warren Commission 50 Years Later: A Critical Examination DVD





We have completed production of the DVD set from our conference, Warren Commission 50 Years Later: A Critical Examination, which includes
over 20 hours of presentations from some of the top experts in the country on the JFK assassination. Ed Sproul, who handled the AV and the videotaping process at the conference, did an outstanding job producing these
DVD’s! Before the conference we consulted people from around the country about how to go about this and we put a much larger investment in terms of the types of equipment we used. As a result, I think that this
7 DISC SET of DVDs will be much better than our effort from our 2013 conference and many other recent JFK conferences. If you have not yet ordered a copy we encourage you to do so, and also hope that you will get
the word out to others who might be interested. People can find more information on our website at http://changehistjfk.blogspot.com/


We now have Paypal available on the website if you wish to order it in advance or you can mail us a check for $50 to: David

Subject: JJ's Collection Completely Moved!

Dear FOJ ~

I am so pleased to tell you that the John Judge Collection is completely moved out of his house and into the new Hidden History Center at 105 Rowell Court in Falls Church, VA! It is the end of a long journey, and the beginning of a new one.

The final load, containing nine filing cabinets, assorted office supplies, disassembled tables and 38 archive boxes, was moved by Great Scott Moving Company on Sunday, July 5. (Those who loved John most should know that we also moved his lifelong friends, Clownie and Ducky, and put them in a place of honor in a glass display case in the new office.)

This project was a Herculean effort by the movers in hot, muggy weather, carrying everything down the long flights of stairs at John's house and up a flight at Rowell Court. The guys did a great job and handled the collection respectfully and carefully. Nothing remains at John's house now, except a few odds and ends, which we can easily transport in a van or SUV. We are thrilled to be at this point after 14 long months of work!

I owe a debt of gratitude to all the volunteers who worked long and hard to pack John's books and carefully sort his papers. Many people contributed time and effort to honor him. I especially want to thank Richard Ochs, Deborah Cunningham and Susanne Zeiders, who showed up week after week and worked tirelessly to help me. They are my heroes!

So now we begin in earnest to create the Hidden History Center in John's honor. Right now, we have an office packed with boxes. There is barely room to walk around. We need to begin making order out of chaos. We have a plan for our next steps, including
cataloging the books in the collection
digitizing the newspaper clippings
sorting, organizing and digitizing the documents
creating an exciting, information-packed new website (watch for it to debut late this summer)
creating an extensive e-mail list that will enable us to keep in touch with our supporters
It has take lots of determination and sacrifice to reach this point, but it has been worth every bit of the hard work. I know John would be so delighted to see his dream coming true, and I know those of you who love him are pleased, too.

We can use your continued help and support. Let me know if you have skills to offer that might help us accomplish the goals I have listed above. Or, if you have no time, you can always help us pay the rent and utilities at Rowell Court by sending a check, made out to the Museum of Hidden History, to me at P.O, Box 514, New Cumberland, PA, 17070. Or you can contribute using the Donate button on the $upport Us page of our website. The link is below.

With much love and deepest gratitude to everyone whose thoughts, prayers and contributions made this accomplishment possible, I remain ~

Beware Of Wrong Conclusions From New CIA Disclosure On Oswald

Andrew Kreig, Sept. 29, 2015

It's easy to reach wrong conclusions about President John F. Kennedy's assassination based on a 1963 CIA document released this month. The official CIA report made to Kennedy's presidential successor was at best unreliable and at worst faked.

Ferrie, Oswald, Seal: ‘Committing Journalism’ in New Orleans


Posted on October 13, 2015 by Daniel Hopsicker        



Leading up to this weekend’s Oswald Conference in New Orleans, over the next few days I will be publishing interviews and video of eyewitnesses who knew three men Americans were violently prevented from hearing.

David Ferrie, Lee Harvey Oswald, and Barry Seal—each with intimate knowledge of the plot to kill JFK—met at a two-week Louisiana Civil Air patrol summer camp at Barksdale Air Force Base in Shreveport Louisiana.

It turns out a lot of people in New Orleans— pilots, aviation professionals, and former members of the Louisiana Civil Air Patrol—still remember them.
oswald-ferrie-seal



"Dude, you're harshing my mellow"

Fifteen years ago I left my home for more than a decade in Newport Beach California to spend two years in and around New Orleans Louisiana investigating the life and brutal assassination of a life-long CIA pilot who Federal prosecutors called the “biggest drug smuggler in American history.”

His name was Barry Seal.

At least initially, I was just looking for eyewitnesses who knew him from his role in the explosive growth of cocaine trafficking during the 1980’s.

I was driving a beat-up ’83 Audi and clutching a Sony camcorder that had been dropped on its head, and now delivered images that seemed to glow in the dark.

It hadn’t always been like that.

Before I became interested in Seal, I was producing a business TV show airing internationally, documentaries and new product introductions for major American companies whose names are household words, and, it almost goes without saying, driving a BMW.


"Definitely second unit meat"
I even went to Cannes for a few years. Not the glamorous Festival de Cannes; I went to MIPCON, the more-subdued and less classy TV version. Still, I partied on a few yachts, and distinctly remember carousing at an all-night MTV affair under a full moon in a 12th Century castle perched high above the city overlooking the Mediterranean.

Those days are gone. No more helicopter shots. Hell, no more dolly shots, even. No more 2-or-3-man crews, no editing sessions in Hollywood with catered lunches. Its pretty much been what a huge red-haired bear of a sound engineer once described to me with a grimace as "definitely second unit meat."

Still, even with all that, today I wouldn’t change a thing. I was an eyewitness to history, Well, maybe not exactly. Instead, I was able to interview several dozen people who were eyewitnesses to our—to America’s—secret history. Many had never before spoken—or even been approached—to tell anyone about what they’d seen.

What happens in New Orleans

what_happens_in_new_orleansWhat's odd about that is that those in the mainstream media who are only too eager to use labels to discredit anyone with the temerity to question the official story, are never keen—or even curious—about interviewing any eyewitness who possesses what called "inconvenient knowledge."

Here’s what I learned: What happens in New Orleans doesn’t absolutely have to stay in New Orleans. But good luck trying to get any of the really juicy bits out.

And if you do, prepare to be called a “conspiracist,” a “conspiracy theorist.”

Or worse.


"And I thought Hollywood was a 'Company' Town"

Something strange was going on in the Louisiana Civil Air Patrol in the mid-Fifties that leads like a trail of bread crumbs through the signal events of America’s secret history during the second half of the 20th Century.

In New Orleans, I found and interviewed eyewitnesses to America’s secret history: pilots, aviation professionals, and former members of the Louisiana Civil Air Patrol, who in those long-ago days in 1955 trained with David Ferrie, Lee Harvey Oswald, and/or Barry Seal.

For example, the story of how David Ferrie recruited Lee Harvey Oswald and Barry Seal into America's “clandestine services” has long been a well-kept secret, and for good reason.

BARRY-SEAL-No more. A picture of 16-year old Barry Seal preparing to step onto a US Air Force plane bound for a two-week summer camp of the Louisiana Civil Air Patrol at Barksdale Air Force Base in July of 1955 where he will meet fellow cadet Lee Harvey Oswald, and where both will fall into the orbit of the freakish David Ferrie was published in “Barry & ‘the boys.’”

A close perusal offers more than a glimpse into what really happened: While still an impressionable teenager both Barry Seal and Lee Harvey Oswald came under the tutelage of a man you wouldn't want your worst enemies' kid to know, pedophile David Ferrie.

Had no one known? Of course they had. They've just been afraid to talk.


High Concept: Interview eyewitnesses. Write down what they say.

Today Collin Hamer is an archivist and librarian at the New Orleans Public Library who still retains attendance records from his time in the CAP with Ferrie and Oswald, where he was one of Ferrie’s protégés.

Oswald attended more than a dozen CAP meetings led by David Ferrie in an Eastern Airlines hangar at Moisant Airport, he testified to the House Select Committee on Assassinations.
"Ferrie was a unit leader. He headed the Civil Air Patrol Unit during the period that Oswald attended,” Hamer told the Committee. “They were both there."

He recounted a story to me about how Ferrie came to move his CAP unit from Lakefront Airport to New Orleans International (Moisant.)

"Our CAP unit was all-boy, which was just the way Ferrie liked it," said Hamer, “until a woman named Gladys Durr brought her girl scout troop over, and we all paired off, boys and girls together. Dave Ferrie didn't like that one little bit. He and Durr got into a hot clash, and he moved to the Moisant unit."

One reason Ferrie used the CAP was for the procurement of young boys for what Hamer wryly called "unauthorized physicals."


A 'special' CAP unit for military drills

Eddie Shearer was another cadet in Ferrie's Civil Air Patrol unit before joining the Air Force. I read him a quote about the military demeanor of Ferrie's outfit, and he quickly affirmed its truth.

"The entire reason for the existence of Ferrie’s New Orleans Squadron was national drill competitions. We attended three years in a row," said Shearer.

"The accent in the New Orleans unit was totally on professionalism. Almost all of Ferrie's cadets intended to go into the Air Force, and if you had your CAP "Certificate of Proficiency" when you entered, you automatically had a leg up, and began basic training with one stripe already."

Shearer spent time hanging around the gas station that Carlos Marcello gave Ferrie right after the Kennedy assassination.
“There's never been any doubt in my mind that Dave's gas station, a Gulf station out on Airline Highway, was his CIA cover," said Shearer.

"Some people I knew pretty well hung out there, and it was the funniest thing: if you drove in to fill up with gasoline—which is what a gas station is supposed to be for, right?—you could sit in your car for just about forever waiting for someone to come out and tell you they were "closed."

“Whatever they were doing there, pumping gas wasn't it."


Barry Seal owned one, too

JGJim Garrison noticed the same thing.

In "Heritage of Stone," he wrote, "Although Ferrie to all intents and purposes was unemployed at the time except for part-time investigative work for a lawyer, an examination of his bank account at the Whitney National Bank revealed that during the three week period prior to the President's assassination he deposited $7,093.02."

"Then a few months after the assassination, Ferrie suddenly acquired a large service station.”

“He ran it in much the same way he maintained his apartment. On one occasion he had just filled the gas tank of an acquaintance and then waved him away, turning down payment for the gas.”

"Forget it," said Ferrie. "The government's paying for it anyway."


Skeletons in the closet… and in the backyard

FERRIE2 (3)"Dave was a brilliant individual, interested in all kinds of things," said Shearer. “He had a workshop in his backyard, out back of the house. And I know this sounds weird, but he had a skull out there, hooked up to a skeleton, and he had different colored electrical wire—blue, red, green—to simulate the nervous system, and better understand human physiology."

Shearer several times met Dave Ferrie’s mother, who was visiting him, and she told Shearer that Dave's brother was a nuclear physicist. Intrigued, I tracked Ferrie's only living relative, his brother the nuclear physicist, who was living in California. He was unwilling to talk.

"There were constant examples of Dave Ferrie's brilliance when I hung around with him," said Shearer. "For example, he had a little lawnmower that he couldn't get to start. One day I was out back and he had me repeatedly pull on the little rope that should have started it, while he watched."

"'What a waste of efficiency,' Dave mused out loud. 'If we could only just get rotary motion from a motor at the start!'”

“This was, remember, years before the rotary engine was patented, before anyone had ever even heard of a Wankel motor. But Dave had had the same idea, just talking out loud."


Flies to D.C. Returns flashing big wad. Huh.

hqdefaultLike many in New Orleans at the time, Shearer was used to seeing Ferrie at the airport with Sergio Arcacha Smith, the Cuban Revolutionary Front leader for whom he (Ferrie) was training exile pilots.

"There were a lot of things about Dave that just didn't fit, unless you added them up another way," says Shearer. "Just his appearance…good god. You have to wonder how Eastern was able to keep him as long as they did.

“I remember him taxi-ing his Eastern Convair one time, on his weekday Houston-New Orleans 'milkrun.' He would always pull in way faster than any other airline pilots did, and he'd be leaning out of one side of his cockpit window, looking like a damn railroad engineer."

waveTwo weekends a month Dave would fly a Constellation up to Washington D.C., said Shearer. “If while he was up there he was meeting with his CIA contacts, it would make sense. Because I was with him on three or four occasions after he returned, and when he opened his wallet, he had hundred dollar bills."

"You’ve gotta remember, this was in the Fifties," Shearer continued. "Anyone who was working back then can tell you, everybody got paid in twenties. Nobody got paid in hundred dollar bills. You hardly ever even saw hundred dollar bills."


"Every time I think I'm out…"

Shearer received convincing proof of Dave Ferrie's career in clandestine services five years after his death.

"In 1972 I was asked to join the senior CAP, which is an outfit with no cadets. There I met Herb Wagner, a Navy flier in World War II who’d been recruited by the OSS at the end of the war, and after we got friendly, I'd go over to his house, and sometimes he’d reminisce about things he'd done for the CIA during the mid-'50's."

al"Herb who told me, 'Once you're in the CIA, its hard to get out.' He’d tried to get out when he got married and settled down. He and his wife adopted a baby girl, and he wasn't the daredevil he’d once been.

“But still they pressured him to fly for them," he told me.

"One time I saw him just after he’d received a visit from the CIA asking him to go do something he quite obviously no longer really wanted to be doing. And he was really down, and later I thought that was maybe why he loosened up a bit about Dave Ferrie."

"He said 'if the truth was ever known about him, he’ll be recognized as one of the true unsung heroes of the United States.'"

“That's when I realized that Ferrie had been a regular CIA guy, not just some 'asset,' or 'contract operative.'"


Forget the mice. Look into my eyes.

Hypnotic-SpiralOf the many fringe controversies swirling around Dave Ferrie's life—like the one about whether he was attempting to induce cancer in lab mice kept in cages in his apartment—none is "fringe-ier" than his supposed talent for hypnotism.

But the evidence for this was not merely persuasive: it was overwhelming. From numerous sources I heard unsolicited first-hand testimony about his preoccupation with hypnotism, as well as his ability to hypnotize people.

A report on David Ferrie by FBI agents Eugene P. Pittman and John C. Oakes dated December 2, 1963 refers to remarks from Gene Barnes, an NBC cameraman.

B.Mulholland
“Barnes said Bob Mulholland, NBC News, Chicago, talked in Dallas to one Fairy, a narcotics addict now out on bail on a sodomy charge in Dallas. Fairy said that Oswald had been under hypnosis from a man doing a mind-reading act at Ruby's 'Carousel.' Fairy was said to be a private detective and the owner of an airline who took young boys on flights 'just for kicks.'"


Bob Mulholland will later become President of NBC News; "Fairy" (Ferrie), who did own an airline, United Air Taxi Service, will three short years later be dead.

Using it on the kids

plane
Eddie Shearer brought the subject (hypnosis) up himself.

"The hypnotism business was the thing about him that bothered me most. I remember, one time, we were marching in formation—drilling—out at Lakefront Airport, getting ready to go to the CAP nationals drill competition. And this one kid was twirling a ‘guidon’—a metal thing, a fleur de lis on the top of the pole with the units' colors—and it got away from him and it cut his hand pretty deeply. I mean, a real deep gash."


“The kid gets up holding his hand, and blood is running all down his arm past his elbow. Dave walked over to him, and put his hand out in front of the kid's face like he's giving him a stiff-arm. Then he said, ‘Sleep. You will feel sensation but no pain.'"

DF-LAKE"And then we were all waiting for an ambulance to take the kid to the hospital,” Shearer continued, “and the kid is bleeding all over. But he's not in pain anymore. And Dave goes over to him again, and says, 'You will stop bleeding.'"

"And he did. Later, when I was in the Air Force, I learned that this is possible, that it can be done. But it can't be done with a subject unless you've been working, hypnotically, with that subject for a pretty long period of time. You can't just walk over to someone, in other words, and tell them to stop bleeding.”

"So it was clear to me that Dave Ferrie had been working hypnosis with that kid for a long time without anyone knowing it. At least I had never heard of it before, and I spent a lot of time out there, hanging around that airport."


"The FBI was always struggling to catch up"

suitable attireShearer remembered something else he thought was strange.

"It was back in '58 and '59 that Dave became convinced the FBI was tapping his phone. So he warned us not to say anything on the phone that we didn't want to have overheard. And when he would pick it up before dialing, sometimes we’d hear him swearing a blue streak into the receiver, like he was talking to whoever was tapping his phone."

Barry Seal and Dave Ferrie were in the same business, and also shared an unusual trait that’s a clear plus for any would-be secret agent. Both had photographic memories. (So, too, for that matter, did Richard Bissell, the CIA agent in charge of the Bay of Pigs disaster.)

So it comes as no surprise that they had similar experiences with Federal law enforcement, and at about the same time. According to Jerry Chidgey, Barry's roommate and friend, there was quite a bit of federal interest in Barry Seal. The FBI was even following him.

amber-bottle"When I met Barry I owned 'The Amber Bottle,' a folk club in Baton Rouge, and that was where Barry used to hang,” Chidgey recalled. “We were capitalizing on the folk craze. We became good friends and ended up living together. One day two FBI guys showed up asking questions while he was gone on a trip.”

"Later that same year, I think 1960, I flew to Dallas. And two men in black suits followed me, both there and back. And unless they were making a practice of shriveling folk club owners, the only reason I could figure out was it must have had something to do with Barry.”


“Cause it makes your hair ‘do-right.”

james-poche

James Poche is a pilot and the kind of colorful character Louisiana seems to produce with some regularity, a living embodiment of the laid-back Caribbean ‘Margarita-ville’ lifestyle popularized at some now-dim moment in time in a previous century by singer Jimmy Buffet.

Poche wears sandals, his shirt hangs outside his jeans, and he’s got a ‘do-rite’ rag wrapped around his head. When I asked why it’s called that, he grinned.

"My oldest sister hooked me up with Barry,” he explained. “They went to school together, and I took a couple of flying lessons from him in 1958, and that was how it started. I used to make signs and banners for him.”

“I was the son of a Louisiana state trooper who ran security at the State House in Baton Rouge,” he told me. “So—in the Louisiana way of things— I had some family connections.

el-blaze
James was (typically) being modest. His father, Pappy Poche, was Governor Earl Long’s personal bodyguard, as well as something of a local legend.

“Pappy would go partying on Bourbon Street with the Guv at the Famous Door,” he recalls. “And the girls would come around passing the cap, and Pappy would take his gun out and set it in the hat, and they’d go nuts. One time he pulled a .38 and commandeered a horse carriage in Jackson Square, just throwing some tourists out. You could get away with that kind of thing back then.”


Poche became one of Barry Seal’s oldest and best friends, as well as a smuggling buddy. He explained, “I was a young kid and wanted to learn to fly, partly just to have some escape from a dysfunctional family, with all that entails. So I just gravitated towards Barry. He taught me a lot.”


"Find kids whose parents won't miss 'em much."

teenagerPoche had described a family situation remarkably similar to Seal’s own, which was similarly troubled under the surface. His Father, B.C. Seal, drank, and Seal moved in and out of the house during adolescence.

Had David Ferrie, Seal’s recruitment officer, been looking to recruit boys in just these circumstances?

“He would go off for two or three weeks at a time, and then be back like nothing had happened. And he had a lot of secrets. He seemed pretty mysterious. He was an enigma in Baton Rouge. No one there had ever seen anything like him before, or could ever figure out just what he was really up to.”

James first began working for—and later flying with—Barry Seal in the early 1960’s. Then, in the mid-70’s, he went into ‘marijuana importation’ with him.

"Baton Rouge is kind of a go-nowhere place," Poche explained. "And Barry had a lot of ‘soldier of fortune-type’ ideas, which made him seem glamorous to kids around the airport. Barry had the James Bond Syndrome.”

James' sister, Nancy Poche, the childhood friend of Seal’s who'd introduced them, agrees with her brother about the kind of dead-end life available locally.

“Louisiana is the kind of place,” she told me, “where as soon as you cross the Sabine River coming in from Texas, the road begins to go galump, galump, galump. And this is on the Interstate, for god sakes, and you’ve got to wonder: Where does all the money go?”


Even then, Elvis was fixin' to leave the building

BARRY-SEAL- (3)As Barry Seal began jumping in with both feet into the cocaine smuggling business, Poche was mostly content to watch him from the sidelines, especially when Barry began to building an increasingly-paramilitary organization. For as long as he could ( for a long long time) James Poche held on to a romantic ideal: the lone bush pilot and occasional marijuana smuggler.

"Elvis," some of his buddies were calling Barry Seal. It seemed to describe him. At least the Elvis who once said "Ambition is a dream with a V8 engine."

"We would fly down to New Orleans from Baton Rouge for the evening," Poche said. "Drink at the Playboy Club, visit the sheriff's brothel in Opelousas, that sort of thing. We were living in his airplane hanger, and hanging out with Johnny Rivers, the musician, who's from Baton Rouge. And that was how Barry met Elvis, through Johnny.”

By now, Barry was the subject of open gossip among his pilot friends about what he was doing, and for whom. Taking mysterious trips that were never explained, then coming back and hanging out at the Playboy Club as if nothing had happened. Maybe it was Elvis wished he could be more like Barry Seal. After all, he did always want to be a spy.


A "Secret Agent Man" State of Mind

johnny_rivers-secret_agent_man_sA curious sidelight: many believe, as Poche does, that Johnny Rivers one big hit, “Secret Agent Man,” was about Barry Seal. Today it looks as if this early 60's cultural focus on "secret agent men" was a way that our national 'collective unconscious' found to tell a deep truth about what was happening in America.

It was a more serious truth than anyone realized at the time.

“Though Barry, I met a lot of the ‘players.’ I knew Dave Ferrie; and flew around with him a couple of times. He was a friend of mine. Me and another friend, Charlie Heck, bought a Cessna 170 and kept it out at Lakefront, where Ferrie was based. In fact, I've even got copies of David Ferrie's signature in my log books."

What is today known as "Lakefront Airport" was not—back in the early Sixties—just the small public airport it appears to be today. It was, instead, a Naval Reserve facility where Cubans trained as pilots before the Bay of Pigs invasion.

“We used to live together in (Barry's mother) Mary Lou's spare bedroom. Barry was involved in all sorts of things. One time I remember helping him figure out how to drop 50,000 leaflets over Baton Rouge with pictures of apples with a worm in them.” Poche grinned. “It got a guy named "Apple" Sanders un-elected from the State Senate that year, that's for sure."


"You gotta remember: Barry smuggled for the Democrats."

grady-hoffaWhat football is to Nebraska, state politics is to Louisiana. It’s a contact sport, and Barry Seal was a player, at Grady Partin's behest. James Poche told us, "Barry was hanging out at Grady Partin's (a famous Teamster, and enemy of Jimmy Hoffa) during ‘62 and ’63.

An old Teamster official confirmed Barry's friendship with Partin, which he said explained Seal’s frequent appearances with him at the local Teamster hiring hall.

"Hell, back then we was kings in this state," says Butch McKeown, today a bail bondsman. "We absolutely ruled this state back then."

Who was the "we" Butch was referring to? When I learned more about Grady Partin, I was less puzzled. Later still, Butch told me, in one sentence, more than I’d learned poking around the drug trade for a year.

“You gotta remember,” Butch said to me, looking serious, “Barry smuggled for the Democrats.”


Three cheers for drug abuse

After Jimmy Carter’s election, his White House Strategy Council on Drug Abuse was worried about the influx of drugs from Afghanistan and Pakistan. They were stonewalled by the CIA, and reportedly denied access to all classified information on drug trafficking, even as the CIA and the Army jointly set up a special aviation operation called "Seaspray."

This was old news to local and state police in high trafficking areas, where the cynical manipulation was used to flood America with a river of drugs.Barry Seal was there during a period which saw the growing clout and importance of Special Forces. In late 1961 the Air Force set up—as part of this increased emphasis on Special Forces— a Special Ops Air Base in the middle of Eglin Air Force Base in the Florida panhandle, pulling in aircraft and crews from the world-wide "Air America" system.

His pilot's logs reflect the change. He began flying regularly to a destination which he coyly listed as "Pensacola," the town nearest the base. At the age of only 22, Barry Seal was learning tradecraft.

“Barry would call me from the road every so often,” said James Poche. “Once I got a call from him, and he was all excited. ‘I’m in Karachi, Pakistan,’ he said. ‘You should come right over.’”

In 1987 New York Times reporter Seymour Hersh revealed that when the Reagan Administration sought to expand covert paramilitary operations in Central America, the CIA was "forced" to rebuild its capabilities illegally,relying on outside assets like Barry Seal.


They called it Operation Seaspray.

The CIA and the Army jointly set up a special aviation operation called "Seaspray." Every pilot was handpicked by a group of Army and CIA officers, among whom were experienced pilots and special operations personnel. However this was already old news to local and state police in high trafficking areas, being flooded with a river of drugs.

Over Colombia, Seal’s by-now small fleet of planes flew through "windows" in Colombian airspace: precise periods, paid for with $25,000 bribes, when the military would “look the other way,” although they must have had to look straight down at the ground to avoid seeing the dozens of flights which took off every night at dusk.

“You would be sitting in your plane overlooking the sea, on a runway hacked out of a mountainside,” smuggler pilot James Poche told us. “Then as if on cue, as soon as the sun went down you would see dozens of tiny specks taking off and flying out over the water as soon as the sun went down, heading north.”

Pilots returning to the US over the Gulf with a load of dope often flew just 60 feet above the water, with waves from the Gulf splashing up onto the windshield, in what was— except for the dim lights of the instrument panel—total darkness.

When law enforcement authorities debriefed convicted "drug smuggler" Seal in late 1985, one of the cops present spoke to Seal brusquely.

He said, "We already know about Seaspray."

two stories about assassination


1.

Lyndon Johnson led a ‘coup d'etat’ against JFK: Scholar

http://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2015/10/13/433263/CIA-kennedy-assassination

Tue Oct 13, 2015 3:59PM

Former US President Lyndon B. Johnson (left), along with high level CIA officials, “engineered the murder of Kennedy as a coup d'etat,” Dr. Kevin Barrett told Press TV on Tuesday.

Former US President Lyndon B. Johnson, with the CIA’s assistance, was involved in a “coup d'etat” to assassinate former President John F. Kennedy, an American scholar in Wisconsin says.

Johnson, along with high level CIA officials, “engineered the murder of Kennedy as a coup d'etat,” said Dr. Kevin Barrett, a founding member of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance.

“This has been established by alternative historians because you can’t publish this in the mainstream [media], you can’t say this in the academic journals,” Barrett told Press TV on Tuesday.

Johnson served as vice president of the United States during the presidency of Kennedy from 1961 to 1963.

He was sworn in as president in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963, just 2 hours after JFK was assassinated in Dallas. This was interpreted by some that Johnson was too eager to assume power.

“We know that we had a coup d'etat on November 22, 1963, orchestrated by Vice President Johnson and top level CIA people, with the possible help of organized crime elements linked to the Israeli Mossad,” Barrett said.

Israel also had a motive to kill Kennedy because the president was opposed to the regime's nuclear weapons program which he believed could instigate a nuclear arms-race in the Middle East, Barrett argued.

Kennedy encountered tensions with former Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion who wanted to develop nuclear weapons.

The President's Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy, known unofficially as the Warren Commission, was established by Johnson in November 1963 to investigate the assassination of Kennedy.

The commission's final report, released

Maldives police chief says no one beyond reach in boat blast probe

http://www.haveeru.com.mv/news/63103

Police Commissioner Hussain Waheed meets top police officers on Thursday. PHOTO/POLICE

Maldives police chief Hussain Waheed on Thursday insisted that he would not hesitate to arrest anyone in connection to the explosion aboard the presidential speedboat late last month.

Speaking during a sit-down with police officers on Saturday, Hussain Waheed said the case has been given top priority.

He said the police has given special precedence to bring everyone connected to the blast to justice. The chief asked all police officers' support in the endeavour.

The investigation team has been given the green light to use every available resource at its disposal, he added. Police would also enable the team to conduct and independent investigation, he said.

The police chief further stressed that no one must be allowed to disrupt the peace and stability of the country to hinder the investigation.

He urged all police officers to be vigilant to ensure the safety and security of the nation at this crucial juncture.

President Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom and First Lady Fathimath Ibrahim were travelling to Male from the Ibrahim Nasir International Airport, located on the nearby island of Hulhule which is a five-minute ferry ride from the capital city, on September 28 when the explosion took place. They had returned home that morning after concluding their visit to Saudi Arabia to perform the annual hajj pilgrimage.

The president was unhurt, but the first lady suffered a spinal fracture while presidential secretary Fathimath Mohamed Solih and bodyguard Abdu Nasir received minor injuries including burns.

The first lady still remains in hospital.

The blast is being investigated by an enquiry commission set up by the president.

Apart from releasing video footage of the incident, the commission has not revealed much detail. But it had been confirmed that two army officers with links to the armoury had been taken into custody, and are now in remand for 15 days.

Haveeru has found that the speedboat had been secured by the MNDF for about two hours after the explosion. Sources say that the two army officers had gone on-board without authorisation and are accused of trying to destroy evidence.

The government, meanwhile, has said the explosion could be a targeted attack on the president -- an assertion backed by a team of experts from Sri Lanka assisting the investigation.

Forensic experts from Saudi Arabia, FBI, India and Australia are also assisting the probe.

The claims of a possible assassination attempt have also prompted President Yameen to take extra measures to bolster security.

In a major security shakeup, the president sacked his defence minister this week. He has also replaced the police intelligence chief, the armoury chief and the head of personal security in the past week.

The MNDF's SPG has also been split into two, with a new division created and put in charge of presidential security alone.

Production Complete!
We have completed production of the DVD from our conference, Warren Commission 50 Years Later: A Critical Examination. Ed Sproul, who handled the AV and the videotaping process at the conference, did an outstanding job producing this DVD! Before the conference we consulted people from around the country about how to go about this and we put a much larger investment in terms of the types of equipment we used. As a result, I think that the DVD will be much better than our effort from our 2013 conference and many other recent JFK conferences. We are anticipating a ship date of February 16th for the first orders. If you have not yet ordered a copy we encourage you to do so, and also hope that you will get the word out to others who might be interested. We now have Paypal available on the website if you wish to order it in advance or you can mail us a check to David Denton JFK Historical Group, 1305 Hall St. Olney Il, 62450. To those who have already paid for the DVD we will send it out as soon as it's ready.

CLINT HILL, UNDER PRESSURE, CHANGED HIS STORY! : (Tim Taylor wrote):"SS Agent Clint Hill rode in the back of the limo with Jackie Kennedy and the slain President from Dealey Plaza to Parkland Hospital. This duty made him one of the first government-official-close-eye-witnesses to the head wound. He said in his testimony to the Warren Commission that there was a large hole in the rear of the head. He repeated his story over the years in interviews. His commission testimony ma...tches that of the Parkland doctors. During these interviews he never mentions a hole in the right side of the head. But then he inexplicably changed his version to mirror the Bethesda version. In a new video interview, his story changes completely. He now has it that the large hole in back is gone and replaced with a small bullet entry hole. The large hole in back he relocates to the right side of the head in front of the right ear. It took Agent Hill decades to get in step with the Warren Commission. These two pictures are from YouTube videos giving the two contradicting versions."
