The Assassination / And, Action!
« on: December 07, 2010, 12:44:35 AM »
http://www.assassinationresearch.com/v2n1/chrono2.pdf

The 112th Military Intelligence Group at 4th Army Headquarters at Fort Sam Houston is told to “stand down” rather than report for duty in Dallas, over the protests of the unit commander, Col. Maximillian Reich. Nevertheless, Lt. Colonel George Whitmeyer, the commander of the local Army intelligence reserve, will be in the police pilot car which will precede the motorcade in Dallas, and an Army Intelligence officer is with FBI agent James Hosty 45 minutes before the parade, on Main Street.


It will be later revealed that the 112th MI Group, which maintains an office in Dallas, had possessed a file on a man named “Harvey Lee Oswald,” identifying him as a pro-communist who had been in Russia and had been involved in pro-Castro activities in New Orleans. This military file erroneously gives Oswald’s address as 605 Elsbeth, the same mistake found on jack Revill’s list. Apparently military intelligence is swift in providing Dallas police with information on Oswald, the man who will come to be labeled as the lone assassin of Kennedy. It is a fact that several Dallas police officers also serve in various military reserve units and are therefore in close contact with military intelligence. Information on Oswald apparently comes from the 112th MIG’s operations officer, Lt. Col. Robert E. Jones, who is stationed at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio. Testifying to the House Select Committee on Assassinations, Jones will say that on the afternoon of the assassination he receives a call from his agents in Dallas advising that a man named A.J. Hidell has been arrested. (This is most interesting because, while Oswald did carry some cards identifying him as Hidell, no mention is made of this in the media today indicating a close relationship between the M.I. agents and Dallas Police.) Jones will testify that he begins a search of his intelligence indexes and locates a file on A.J. Hidell which cross-references into one for Lee Harvey Oswald. He says he then contacts the FBI in both San Antonio and Dallas with his information. The files on Hidell and Oswald give detailed information about his trip to Russia as well as pro-Castro activities in New Orleans. Jones says he had become aware of Oswald in the summer of 1963 when information had been passed along by the New Orleans Police Department regarding his arrest there. He says the 112th MIG took an interest in Oswald as a possible counterintelligence threat. The House committee, remarking on how quickly the military found files on Oswald, will state: “This information suggested the existence of a military intelligence file on Oswald and raised the possibility that he had intelligence associations of some kind.” The Warren Commission will specifically ask to see any military files regarding Oswald but will never be shown the files mentioned by Jones or any others. In 1978, when the House Select Committee on Assassinations learns of these files and requests them from the military, they will be told the files have been “destroyed routinely” in 1973. Even more troublesome is the military’s file on A.J. Hidell. Jones states that Hidell is an alias used by Oswald, which accounts for the fact that the two files were cross-indexed. However, nowhere in the vast documentation of Oswald’s life did he ever actually use A.J. Hidell as an alias - the exceptions being when he mail-ordered the rifle allegedly used to kill Kennedy and the pistol allegedly used to kill Officer Tippit using the name Hidell and the use of the name Hidell on Fair Play for Cuba literature. This raises two possibilities. Either military intelligence had some independent knowledge of Oswald’s purchase of the weapons which took place long before he arrived in New Orleans (Were they moni­toring his Dallas post office box?) or someone, perhaps even Oswald himself, informed the military of his purchases. In either event it appears that the U. S. military knew more about Oswald and his weapons than has yet been made public. Crossfire


May 16, 1973 Army Intelligence declassifies an extraordinary army telegram today. Concerning Lee Harvey Oswald, the telegram had been dispatched late in the evening of November 22, 1963. The cable, from the Fourth Army command in Texas to the U.S. Strike Command at McDill Air Force Base in Florida, links Oswald to Cuba via Cuba’s alleged Communist “propaganda vehicle,” the Fair Play for Cuba Committee. It also transmits two statements about Oswald, both false, which have come via army intelligence from the Dallas police: “Assistant Chief Don Strongfellow, Intelligence Section, Dallas Police Department, notified 112th Intelligence Group, this Headquarters, that information obtained from Oswald revealed he had defected to Cuba in 1959 and is a card-carrying mem­ber of communist Party.” Strongfellow was a member of the police intelligence unit headed by Jack Revill, while the Fourth Army’s 112th Intelligence Group (with offices in Dallas and New Orleans) was the unit of James Powell (the agent who happened to be taking pictures in Dealey Plaza on Nov. 22, 1963 and was subsequently caught inside the TSBD when it was sealed off by the police soon after the assassination.) The U.S. Strike Command, USSTRICOM, is an extraordinary two-service command (army and air force) set up in 1961 in response to the “Lebanon crisis” of 1958. Designed to provide a swift strike force on short notice, its location in Florida made it singularly appropriate for a surprise attack on Cuba. Since mid-1963 its commander had been General William D. Rosson, a CIA-related general who in 1954 had formed part of General Lansdale’s team in Vietnam. Fletcher Prouty, in his book The Secret Team, lists him as one of the six who “made rapid promotions to the grade of brigadier general and higher as a result of the CIA, Special Forces, and Vietnam.”

http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/JFK488mid.htm


488th Military Intelligence Detachment
In 1956 Jack Alston Crichton started up his own spy unit, the 488th Military Intelligence Detachment in Dallas. Crichton served as the unit's commander under Lieutenant Colonel George Whitmeyer, who was in overall command of all Army Reserve units in East Texas. In an interview Crichton claimed that there were "about a hundred men in that unit and about forty or fifty of them were from the Dallas Police Department."
In November 1963 Jack Alston Crichton was involved in the arrangements of the visit that President John F. Kennedy made to Dallas. His close friend, Deputy Police Chief George L. Lumpkin, and a fellow member of the the 488th Military Intelligence Detachment, drove the pilot car of Kennedy's motorcade. Also in the car was Lieutenant Colonel George Whitmeyer, commander of all Army Reserve units in East Texas. The pilot car stopped briefly in front of the Texas School Book Depository, where Lumpkin spoke to a policeman controlling traffic at the corner of Houston and Elm.

Phil's footnote:

No discussion of the assassination is complete without addressing the works of John Armstrong and John Newman which establish the long and meticulous preparation of the patsy, an undercover intelligence operative in service to ONI, CIA, FBI.

Johnson's announcement in April that Kennedy would attend a luncheon in Dallas marks the date from which the Secret Service destroyed its 1963 records rather than comply with the JFK Records Act and turn them over to the National Archives.

The framing and thereby the muzzling of Abraham Bolden to cover the attempts in Chicago and Florida, the foreknowledge of Milteer and Marcello, the SS security stripping, the suspicious change in the motorcade placement of the physician, press cars, motorcycles, agents on running board, and a host of other factors indicate a rather substantial foreknowledge.

As for Walkie Talkie man, is he chopped liver.

Just another schlub talking into a walkie-talkie at the exact location of the lethal crossfire from the fence and the Dal-Tex.

Thomas Aquinas and a host of others offered proofs for the existence of God.

The assassination of a president may simply be the random chance of the evolution of species.

Or men with guns following orders.

Can't wait for Tom Hank's and Bugsy in Toy Deposit Story IV: Pop Goes the Patsy.



Regarding observation posts, a deputy cracked, “I shoot lots of people, “ when asked about his new scoped rifle with silencer—a sabot was found on a rooftop by an air conditioning service man, perhaps on the county records building.

Umbrella man would be visible from Dal-Tex and stockade fence—and of course, the pilot car stopped to talk to a policeman at the Depository.  And one motorcycle policeman rode off that corner on Houston rather than turn.  Bowers saw a man with a microphone cruising the lot prior to the shoot.

The communications required would be simple and based on a plan understood by trained military-police personnel.

And when it was done, they walked off in separate directions, or flashed Secret Service credentials, or joined the search, being in police uniform
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.

The Assassination / Deathbed deflection ends Hunt for Red November?

David Sanchez

I read all about you in Gaeton Fonzi's The Last Investigation.  You're dead now, but you led an exciting life.  And you “got that sob.”

I downloaded and printed to a binder Saint John Hunt's Bond of Secrecy.  I have the five-page letter I emailed him in 2008 upon reading his work.

I found the passion in E. Howard Hunt's Give Us This Day (1973) to come through powerfully.  It was a feeling the nation shared.  Lots of people calling JFK an sob, a traitor, things not appropriate for a family-friendly forum.

Mark Lane in Plausible Denial (1991) deconstructed Hunt's alibi for November 22, 1963.  Chinese grocery.  The smell of fish.  It's all coming back to me.

Hunt on his deathbed points his bony finger at LBJ.  And Cord Meyers.  Oh, it's political ambition and romantic jealousy.  Man, that answers that.

And all that stuff about Bay of Pigs, and missile crisis, and preemptive attack, and disarmament, and test ban, and detente with Khruschev and demarche with Castro, well that was marginalia.

E. Howard Hunt was old-school spook to the end, and his confession was no confession but deflection: that is, the Company didn't kill the chief; some cheap politician and jealous renegade did the dirty deed.

And now we have Gates as former DCI and current SecDef insuring we have a hot war and a cool supply of junk.

The French have a saying for it.
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.

The Assassination / Presumed innocent

No statute of limitations on murder.

Try Oswald for murder of Kennedy, as well as that of Tippit.


Dallas Police Chief Jesse Curry:
"We don't have any proof that Oswald fired the rifle. No one has been able to put him in that building with a gun in his hand."
(November 5, 1969, United Press International)

Oswald showed negative in the Dallas Police Department paraffin test for nitrates on his cheek, hence he did not fire any shouldered weapon.

Gil Jesus stipulates the alleged weapon was not Oswald's:

http://www.jfklancerforum.com/dc/dcboard.php?az=show_mesg&forum=3&topic_id=85804&mesg_id=85804&page=

A trial would subpoena witnesses and evidence and hold it all to the standard of legal practice, adversarial challenge, cross-examination.

Discovery would call forth no end of pig-like squealing from Langley and FBI, Secret Service and DPD, military intelligence, and the actions and whereabouts of all the subjects of inquiry.

Arlen Specter would be on the stand for two weeks.  Day after day, no interruptions, distractions, changes of subject.

Mr. George Bush of the CIA, ditto.

In re the case of Officer Tippit, substantial and valid witness testimony is absent.  Ballistic evidence is dismissive.  Timing fails a true test.

Tippit cannot be proved beyond a reasonable doubt.  There is no case there.

See Jim DiEugenio's Part I here:

http://www.ctka.net/2009/ruby_mack_2.html

Also his Part III here:

http://www.ctka.net/2008/bugliosi_2_review.html

Again and again the Warren Commission was only able to hoodwink the nation because it was a star chamber, a cabal of powerful men acting in secret, more Kafka and Stalin than legal ethic and constitutional compliance.

Over and over Oswald has been “convicted” by the parrots of propaganda, the Goebblesians swinging on vines shrieking circular reasoning.

Kennedy, Tippit, Walker.

Posner confiscated the ABA prosecution case.  Bugliosi is an out of control prosecutor.

None of it would withstand a rigorous defense of the level afforded the athletic celebrity absorbing the news of 1995.

The patsy would produce a J'accuse for the new millenium indicting all Shakespeare's “honorable men.”

Watergate would look like a time-out at day care.

May I make the first suggestion for the defense table, and let others follow:

Mark Lane

Further this deponent sayeth not.
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.

The Assassination / Case No. 2007 Lane v. Bugliosi

I just read the 42-page article by Mark Lane titled Vinnie, It Is Round.

Herein Lane is to Bugliosi as Weisberg is to Posner in Case Open (1994).

Also must-reading is Jim DiEugenio's ten-part deconstruction of Bugliosi:

http://www.ctka.net/2008/bugliosi_review.html

All defenders of the official propaganda are liars, each adding a special sauce.

The Warren Commission ignored or demeaned the inconvenient truth-teller.

The personnel tell you it was a midway sucker trap: Dulles, McCloy, Ford, Rankin, Specter.

Posner stole his case and never credited its creator.  Hubris has dispatched him, plagiarism and associating with those at the heart of the Afghan mess.

Bugliosi adds personal insult to fawning acceptance of FBI pap, having taken the coin so attractive to a certain pseudonymic Church Lady.

If your case is weak on the facts, argue the law.  Failing that, assassinate the witnesses or their character.

If a coup comes to America it will come, not from the Pentagon, but the CIA.

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.

The Assassination / Stand by

Mr. Johnson's English class.  The round silver intercom interrupted to inform us the president had been shot.  Stand by.

Our buzzing was again interrupted, "The president has died.  The buses will be at the front of the school to take you home for the weekend."

Where we watched reports come in helter-skelter, until Sunday morning in the parking garage we had a brief glimpse of the eevil Communist villain.

Honk.  Honk.  BLAM

Later, much later, Geraldo and Robert Groden and Dick Gregory and the OMG Film.

JFK, Vietnam, 1968 Shooting Gallery, Watergate, Fall of Saigon, Zapruder.  The wheels came off the bus.

The Assassination / Daily Kos, CIA, those who control the past

The election of 1964 might have been a clear choice between Kennedy's NSAM 263, the withdrawal from Vietnam, and Goldwater's Cold Warrior posture.

Were it not for the coup d'etat.

The coverup was the Warren Commission urged by Bundy, appointed by Johnson, fed by Hoover, run by Dulles, McCloy and Ford.

Oswald was no Communist.  Was Kennedy a traitor?

I posit the debate has moved beyond the question of conspiracy to the reason for the coup d'etat.

Why did the defense-intelligence establishment kill the president—if they wanted a war, why could they not sell that idea to the American people.

Did they fear the people would choose detente.

I posit they did so fear.

Kennedy deemed Vietnam a civil war; his enemies saw it as part of the Cold War strategic struggle.

There will never be disclosure; no mea culpa will be forthcoming.

As Mark Rudd's Maoists ran the streets of Washington January 19, 1969 in the Nixon Counterinnaugural, passing Justice, banging the iron knockers on the giant metal doors, the lawyers on the second floor in their shirtsleeves sneered down and defiantly flashed the bird.

That's the justice we may expect from government.

Murder was done, for which there is no statute of limitations.

Let them defend their treason; their denials are no longer amusing.

A final caution: the so-called Left does not call for reconciling the killing of John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy to insure the maximum immersion in Vietnam.

Why.  Is Markos of the Left?
The CIA Truth about Kos - Daily Kos   


Is Zsa Zsa the Huff of the Left?  http://www.ctka.net/2009/huffpo.html

The Assassination / Leery of Leary

I have The Assassinations edited by Jim DiEugenio and Lisa Pease, and offer the following paragraph from my copy to the rebuttal of the libelous charges by Leary et al:

But there is a big problem with Leary, his story, and those who use it (like biographers David Horowitz and Peter Collier). Leary did not mention Mary in any of his books until Flashbacks in 1983, more than two decades after he met Mary. It's not like he did not have the opportunity to do so. Leary was a prolific author who got almost anything he wanted published. He appears to have published over 40 books. Of those, at least 25 were published between 1962, when he says he met Mary, and 1983, when he first mentions her. Some of these books are month-to-month chronicles, e.g., High Priest. I could not find Mary mentioned, even vaguely, in any of the books. This is improbable considering the vivid, unforgettable portrait that Leary drew in 1983. This striking-looking woman walks in unannounced, mentions her powerful friends in Washington, and later starts dumping out the CIA's secret operations to control American elections to him. Leary, who mentioned many of those he turned on throughout his books, and thanks those who believed in him, deemed this unimportant. That is, until the 20th anniversary of JFK's death. (Which is when Rosenbaum wrote his ugly satire on the Kennedy research community for Texas Monthly, which in turn got him a guest spot on Nightline.) This is also when Leary began hooking up with Gordon Liddy, doing carnival-type debates across college campuses, an act which managed to rehabilitate both of them and put them back in the public eye.

The Assassination / Angleton's greenhouse
« on: January 16, 2011, 04:46:26 AM »


He said he wasn't privy to who struck John.  Of course not; that's the beauty of compartmentalization, plausible denial.

Yet he was peculiarly situated to make Oswald the patsy for the first half century.

Gallup shows 90% 18-to-29 reject the Warren lone gunman.

Oswald wasn't lone--he was useful to three intelligence agencies.

He wasn't a gunman--the paraffin test and absence of evidence.

And he wasn't a communist.



Angleton, however, was to counterintelligence files what Nero Wolfe was to orchids.

The Assassination / French connections

Regarding Soutre and Mertz, this from Michael T. Griffith

http://michaelgriffith1.tripod.com/suspects.htm

A CIA document that was declassified in 1977 reports that a French assassin who belongto the violent, anti-Kennedy French terrorist organization known as the OAS was in Dallas on the day of the shooting (1:202-209; 19:414-419; 25:95-126). The hitman's name, according to the document, was Jean Soutre. The document mentions that Soutre had also gone by the name of Michel Mertz. It now seems likely that the man was really Michel Mertz using Soutre's name (25:95-172, 267-289). Mertz was a ruthless member of the French Mafia, which had a strong motive to kill Kennedy (25:141-172, 267-289). Mertz and Soutre were enemies. Soutre himself said it was possible that the man described in the document was Mertz using his, Soutre's, name. Within 48 hours of the assassination, the man was picked up in Texas by U.S. authorities and immediately expelled. Interestingly, evidence has surfaced that the FBI was looking for Soutre, or for someone using his name, BEFORE the assassination (25:130-133). We also know that the KGB believed it found evidence that Mertz played a role in the assassination and that he was hired by the French (Corsican/Marseille) Mafia (see below).

The CIA document mentions that Soutre received mail from a dentist named Alderson. The FBI located this individual, Dr. Lawrence Alderson, who had met Soutre while stationed in France as a first lieutenant in the U.S. Army. Dr. Alderson told former Rockefeller Foundation scholar Henry Hurt that the FBI agents who interviewed him informed him that the FBI felt Soutre "had either killed JFK or knew who had done it" (19:418). When he spoke with Hurt, Dr. Alderson produced a snapshot of Soutre that he took when he was stationed in France. To make a long story short, the FBI dropped the ball in the investigation of Soutre and essentially swept the whole thing under the rug.

Why would the Mafia have wanted JFK dead? Quite simply, because the Kennedy administration was threatening the very existence of organized crime in America, and the French Mafia could very well have feared that Kennedy was going to disrupt or halt its lucrative heroin enterprise. Robert Kennedy was waging an unprecedented war on the Mafia, a war that targeted not just Mafia operations but also Mafia leaders themselves.

Mr. Angleton-Harvey, Larry Hancock advised in a jfklancer post that the book The Heroin Trail would be illuminating regarding these two figures.

http://www.ebooksread.com/authors-eng/united-states-congress-house-committee-on-gover/the-effectiveness-of-public-law-102-526-the-president-john-f-kennedy-assassina-tin/page-13-the-effectiveness-of-public-law-102-526-the-president-john-f-kennedy-assassina-tin.shtml


Soutre met with CIA officer E. Howard Hunt in April of 1963, and later that spring with anti-Castro Cubans (some of whom knew Oswald) and other members of the World Anti-Communist League operating in the Caribbean and the southern United States. Id. A friend of Soutre's in Dallas, Dr. Lawrence Alderson, stated that the FBI contacted him soon after the assassination trying to locate Soutre for questioning. He states that the Bureau knew Soutre was in Dallas on November 22, 1963, and that he may have been flown out of the country that afternoon in a "government" plane. Id. at 560-61. CIA officer Richard Helms, who testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee about the executive action foreign assassination program (otherwise known as "ZR/Rifle"), indicated that the CIA used highly trained European assassins on certain missions. See Interim Report on Alleged Assassination Plots Involving Foreign Leaders, infra note 81, at 37-67 (especially regarding the assassin known as "QJ/WIN"). Le Cavelier reported to Fensterwald that many former OAS mercenaries were recruited by the CIA and the United States Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) after 1962. Russell, supra note 64, at 563. Soutre, currently living in France, denies any involvement in the Kennedy assassination. Id. His complete CIA and FBI files have not yet been released. Id. at 560.
 
In the late 1950s, Michael Mertz, a former French intelligence agent, was involved in a narcotics smuggling operation between France, the United States, and Canada. In 1961, Mertz was assigned to infiltrate the OAS by the French SDECE. Id. at 559-60 (citing Newsday Staff, The Heroin Trail, (1974)). Soutre also had ties to Corsican Mafia drug operations, according to undercover narcotics agents in Marseilles. Id. at 563. Soutre suggests that Mertz was the man in Dallas on the day of the assassination, and that Mertz used Soutre's name as an alias, not vice versa. Id. Michael Roux, currently a New York based international businessman, claims to have had nothing whatsoever to do with Soutre or Mertz, or the assassination. While he admits being in Dallas visiting friends on the day of the assassination, information obtained by Dick Russell suggests that he was cleared by an FBI investigation in 1964. Id. at 560.


I know that in my printout of Saint John Hunt's Bond of Secrecy the late elder Hunt refers to Soutre as the French gunman on the grassy knoll.

And as you know I characterize the joint effort of the Hunts as a “deathbed deflection.”

One is struck, however, by the Lansky heroin network, Ruby's connection to Lansky and to alleged Lansky courier Braden, and the access to the Golden Triangle which the Vietnam War allowed.

One might ask, why are we still in Afghanistan, why is the border with Mexico still permeable.

Or why the tomato salesman bore such animosity towards the brothers Kennedy.
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.

The Assassination / Dominos, delta wings, and diacetylmorphine

Walking back from the Dal-Tex we have Jim Braden reputed to be a courier for Meyer Lansky a protege of “Lucky Luciano” in sum a long-standing commonality of interest between the OSS and CIA and certain Sicilian and American mafiosi involving the heroin trade.

The outlawing of heroin in 1924 made its criminal distribution profitable in the extreme.  The Turkish source for Marseille refining yielded to the Golden Triangle by the late sixties.

U.S. entry into Vietnam following the defeat of the French at Dien Bien Phu in 1954 provided access.  In October 1963 Kennedy announced he would withdraw all U.S. personnel by 1965.  The Tuesday after his interment in Arlington, LBJ signed NSAM 273 and advised he would not lose Vietnam.

Our friend the colonel told us of being ordered by his superiors to provide safe passage for a drug convoy emerging from territory controlled by the enemy.  It was the strangest thing he'd ever witnessed.

One might wonder at the book Six Days of the Condor made into the Robert Redford film Three Days of the Condor, might wonder whether the CIA was ever involved in drug smuggling, whether Terry Reed in Compromised: Clinton, Bush and the CIA is accurately describing planeloads of drugs from the Nicaraguan jungle arriving at various bases in CONUS.

Britain fought two opium wars in China in the Nineteenth Century; France one.  The use of opium in geopolitical forceplay is neither new nor outre.

Orwell limited conflict between Oceania, Eurasia and Eastasia into a quadrangle which includes the poppy-growing region.  Johnson observed what my poli sci department head, a veteran of the State Department, would call “a concept of limits.”

Col Bui Tin said the war would have been won for the U.S. and the South if the Ho Chi Minh Trail had been closed—but Johnson would not do it, and Nixon, with Kissinger, went to China in 1972, and we may ask what unrecorded arrangement was made to insure the free flow of opium at market prices.

It is, as they say, business, not personal.

The Day It Became the Longest War
http://hnn.us/articles/34024.html

Alfred McCoy on Heroin, Luciano and Lansky:


However, in 1930-1931, only seven years after heroin was legally banned, a war erupted in the Mafia ranks. Out of the violence that left more than sixty gangsters dead came a new generation of leaders with little respect for the traditional code of honor.2
The leader of this mafioso youth movement was the legendary Salvatore C. Luciana, known to the world as Charles "Lucky" Luciano. Charming and strikingly handsome, Luciano must rank as one of the most brilliant criminal executives of the modern age.(Footnote 31) For, at a series of meetings shortly following the last of the bloodbaths that completely eliminated the old guard, Luciano outlined his plans for a modern, nationwide crime cartel. His modernization scheme quickly won total support from the leaders of America's twenty-four Mafia "families," and within a few months the National Commission was functioning smoothly. This was an event of historic proportions: almost single-handedly, Luciano built the Mafia into the most powerful criminal syndicate in the United States and pioneered organizational techniques that are still the basis of organized crime today. Luciano also forged an alliance between the Mafia and Meyer Lansky's Jewish gangs that has survived for almost 40 years and even today is the dominant characteristic of organized crime in the United States.

(Alfred McCoy, et al, The Politics of Heroin in Southeast Asia, pp. 17 - 18)


Alfred McCoy writes on the Golden Triangle:


Almost all of the world's illicit opium [in 1972] is grown in a narrow band of mountains that stretches along the southern rim of the great Asian land mass, from Turkey's and Anatolian plateau, through the northern reaches of the Indian subcontinent, all the way to the rugged mountains of northern Laos. Within this 4,500-mile stretch of mountain landscape, peasants and tribesmen of eight different nations harvest some fourteen hundred tons a year of raw opium, which eventually reaches the world's heroin and opium addicts." A small percentage of this fourteen hundred tons is diverted from legitimate pharmaceutical production in Turkey, Iran, and India, but most of it is grown expressly for the international narcotics traffic in South and Southeast Asia. Although Turkey was the major source of American narcotics through the 1960s, the hundred tons of raw opium its licensed peasant farmers diverted from legitimate production never accounted for more than 7 percent of the world's illicit supply.5 About 24 percent is harvested by poppy farmers in South Asia (Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India). However, most of this is consumed by local opium addicts, and only insignificant quantities find their way to Europe or the United States.6 It is Southeast Asia that has become the world's most important source of illicit opium. Every year the hill tribe farmers of Southeast Asia's Golden Triangle region-northeastern Burma, northern Thailand, and northern Laos-harvest approximately one thousand tons of raw opium, or about 70 percent of the world's illicit supply.7

(Alfred McCoy, et al, The Politics of Heroin in Southeast Asia, p. 9)

In the quiet dark street some blocks from The End coffee house in The Village in 1969 we were accosted by three black gentlemen in trenchcoats and shades the leader of whom in the coldest voice I've ever heard offered, “I've got some good junk, Man.”

And in the wake of the slain heroes of idealism, the end of the 'sixties' idealism, what would be more appropriate than the machine offering the dark fruits of its centuries-long war against the light.

“No thanks, just passing through” on my way to drawing the ship of the sun.
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.

The Assassination / Queen of Diamonds in a polkadot dress

I've got the 1979 Dell paperback John Marks, the Search for the Manchurian Candidate: The CIA and Mind Control.  It was a tremendous disappointment, making the agency's attempts appear buffoonish, clumsy and completely unsuccessful.  I rank the book and the author with the useful idiots who assure us there is nothing to fear, sleep, sleep.

I read the 1959 David Condon The Mancurian Candidate and saw the Frank Sinatra film which followed, only to be pulled from theaters after the assassination.  Is it not fine that Frank put Dorothy Kilgallen down as “that chinless wonder,” she who had the exclusive interview with Jack Ruby and was going to blow the case wide open.

H.P. Albarelli, Jr., A Terrible Mistake: The Murder of Frank Olson and the CIA's Secret Cold War Experiments should be the best work on the subject.  The author devoted a decade to the research and discussed it and related matters on the Deep Politics Forum last year.

One may ask whether Forrestal's swan dive from Bethesda was also chemically induced, replacing the first SecDef having first brought on sudden depression.

There can be no question Sirhan was hypnoprogrammed and triggered by the woman in the polkadot dress; his mission, to distract in order that the second gunman could kill the candidate.  The accoustics test (not the farce in NatGeo) shows thirteen shots, five of which had the signature of the revolver carried by Thane Eugene Cesar.

One may question how it came that Lennon was stalked by Chapman and Reagan by Hinckley—how near GHWBush came to becoming president in 1981 instead of 1989.

We saw Angleton devote 1400 days to breaking Yuri I. Nosenko, only to fail—but succeed in showing all what a paranoid dysfunctional danger the CIA's vaunted CI mogul had become.

And Helms ever the Man Who Kept the Lies, ordering the destruction of the records of Gottlieb's MK-ULTRA.

From the LA Times thirty-one years after the murder of Robert Kennedy: Gottlieb, CIA Poison Master, Dies at 80.

We remain in Afghanistan with access to the opium poppy, an important element of the modification of human behavior through the use of drugs.  The SecDef has remained the same despite a reputed diametric change in the political leadership: a former Director of Central Intelligence.

The French have a saying for it.
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.

The Assassination / William E. Colby's canoe is full of sand

Zalin Grant's Who Murdered the CIA Chief: William E. Colby: a Highly Suspicious Death presents the author's serious first-hand research and interviewing:

The Assassination / Central Intelligence Agency vs temporary occupants

Colby's canoe catastrophe occurred during the year of Deutch's document debacle.

Deutch took home enormously sensitive files, one figure was 17,000, placing them on his unsecured home computer.

In 1995 Bernard L. Schwartz and C. Michael Armstrong would fax the PLA 200 pages of U.S. military missile guidance information in an act described as damaging national security by a declassified Department of Defense report in May 1997.

Deutch had been connected to Russian sites, both for porn and to communicate with a Russian scientist.

In parallel developments Wen Ho Lee would copy nuclear warhead data from Los Alamos National Laboratories and have unreported foreign contacts, under the umbrella provided by Bill Richardson energy secretary.

When Porter Goss' (former and future CIA) chief of staff John Millis (former CIA) blew the whistle, he did a DeMohrenschildt in a bathtub of the Breezeway Motel in Virginia.

Helms' history involves Switzerland where Oswald applied for a college so secluded it was beyond the reach of international intelligence for months.

When Kennedy fired Bissell he was firing a close associate of Helms.

Helms' Joannides is the subject of a Morley FOIA lawsuit rebuffed by Obama—so much for President Transparent.

Obama retains Gates former DCI under GHWBush (DCI under Ford the Wound-Mover), who, as with Bush, under Obama, keeps us close to the Afghan poppy crop.

Is it not too fine that Gerald Posner is involved:

http://blogs.miaminewtimes.com/riptide/2010/07/gerald_posners_new_gig_represe.php

Had Nixon won in 1960 it is certain permission would have been granted for the final B-26 raid on Castro's three T-33 jets with their deadly .50 caliber machine guns, and the invasion likely would have been supported by the U.S. Navy forces on scene.

It was a bold move of Nixon to open China in 1972, and was a flanking move on the Soviet Union under Brezhnev.

In 1972 Hoover died of a heart attack.  In 1973 Johnson died of a heart attack.  In 1974 Nixon was forced to resign due to CIA manipulation and sabotage of a black bag operation on the DNC in 1972.

Ford appointed Rockefeller to investigate the CIA.  Appointed GHWBush as DCI.

The appointment of Gates as SecDef is of note.  Gates with Brzezinski in 2004 coauthored the CFR paper Iran: Time for a New Approach.

It will be remembered Helms was moved from DCI to Ambassador to Iran in 1973 and remained so through 1976.

Iran was lost under Carter whose Brzezinski recently said it's not time to destabilize Iran, while Kissinger amazed all by calling for the release of Pollard, perhaps a move to placate Israel.

Kennedy got in the way of the operation of the machine.  The first rule is don't stop the machine.  The second rule is don't cry as you die trying to stop the machine.

I stipulate Kennedy was paralyzed then murdered in public.  Thanks to the chemical developments whose record Helms ordered destroyed in 1972.
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.

The Assassination / Eddie Lopez: agency set up the patsy

http://www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/viewer/showDoc.do?docId=799

The work of Ed Lopez is a nuclear bomb in the middle of Phillips' mad attempt to sheep-dip Oswald.

Oswald wasn't at the Cuban and Soviet consulates.

Bugliosi spits foam and shows himself the fool.

Ed Lopez tells us a great deal despite the limits of his secrecy censorship.

Gaeton Fonzi's The Last Investigation shows the true nature of this wretched House Select Committee on Assassinations with which the manic Bugliosi attempts to badger witness Lopez.

Blakey & Co. lied through their teeth regarding the testimony of the Bethesda witnesses—then Blakey attempted to seal this for 75 years.

The JFK Records Act signed by Clinton after the storm created by Stone's JFK and resulting in the ARRB released much new information.

Thanks to books like William Matson Law's In the Eye of History we see even FBI agent Sibert didn't buy the photos or the single bullet, and said the wound was in the rear of the head.

And smiling Eddie Lopez tells us—LBJ and Hoover and the Warrenatti to the contrary notwithstanding—Oswald was not in the Cuban and Soviet consulates.

From the DiEugenio review http://www.ctka.net/2008/bugliosi_review.html Bugliosi's cinder block is just more bombast masking utter lack of evidence.
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.
