The secret monitoring of the populus is not unique to the latter half of this last century through 2013, and was certainly in play in the US during the Cold War.  We simply did not have the balance imposed by the internet and the Assanges and Snowdens willing to expose the internal spy operations.

If Cold Warriors were listening in on Eastern Europeans and Russians, why wouldn't they have been listening in on US Citizens?  For instance, The Pond organization positioned their radar equipment on both coasts of the US.  The post in Reseda, CA was clearly dependent on the co-operation of the Chandler family (Los Angeles Times) who were significant investors in global enterprises, Dresser Industries, Pan American Airways, etc.

My point being:  we Americans, interested in reclaiming (or more importantly redefining) democracy must now consider that the assassination of President Kennedy was a step in an obstructive direction; we should take the focus off of the man, John Kennedy RIP, and direct it toward understanding the attack on democracy worldwide on November 22, 1963.

Please invest the necessary time.
Our future may lie beyond our vision, but it is not completely beyond our control. It is the shaping impulse of America that neither fate nor nature nor the irresistible tides of history, but the work of our own hands, matched to reason and principle, that will determine our destiny.

If you can correct Oswald's spelling and grammar, it's very insightful to read his writings. He appears to have been a liberal anti-Communist.

It could have been written by Oswald or by JFK:

“A symbol of the American way, our liberal concession is the existence in our midst of a minority group whose influence and membership is very limited and whose dangerous tendencies are sufficiently controlled by special government agents.

The communist party U.S.A. bears little resemblance to their Russian counterparts, but by allowing them to operate and even supporting their right to speak, we maintain a tremendous sign of our strength and liberalism; harassment of their party newspaper, their leaders, and advocates is treachery to our basic principles of freedom of speech and press.

Their views no matter how misguided, no matter how much the Russians take advantage of them, must be allowed to be aired. After all, communist U.S.A. have existed for 40 years and they are still a pitiful group of radical. (sic).

Oh, this is good stuff from Bill Simpich.  For the first time ever I'm starting to get a handle on the Mexico City smoke and mirrors show.  And I do believe that if we understand MC, we understand the assassination.

Once again Bill, if you're watching, thanks so much for all your hard work and for making this available free gratis and at no cost into the bargain.

Thanks, Echelon.  The book is completed.  Its focus is about the impersonation of Oswald in Mexico City.   This final chapter covers my thoughts on who framed Oswald and killed the President. Rather than sell the book, I'm asking for donations to Mary Ferrell. Leads for good radio shows also appreciated - I wrote it, now I have to let people know it's there.

The concluding chapter of Bill Simpich's new book State Secret: Wiretapping in Mexico City, Double Agents, and the Framing of Lee Oswald is now available for reading online here at MFF.

In the final chapter, subtitled Only Justice Will Stop a Curse, State Secret takes a hard look at suspects and "persons of interest" in the assassination, as opposed to the cover-up. The discussion of the role of the Secret Service, the near-pristine "magic bullet" found by a stretcher at the hospital, and JFK's autopsy illustrates some ways to think about the distinction between assassination planners and cover-up actors. The chapter also suggests that the NSA's ability in 1963 to listen to foreign leaders, access nuclear weapons codes, and obtain details on presidential protection were the crown jewels of US intelligence. These state secrets had to be protected from public view.
