Who really did kill Kennedy?

2007-05-13, San Francisco Chronicle (San Francisco’s leading newspaper)


David Talbot, founder of … believes that new
evidence, including his own research encompassing more than 150 interviews,
further undermines the conclusions of the Warren Commission Report. [His new

… stresses the extent to which the Kennedy administration faced political
pressure from the extreme right, including elements of the CIA leadership, the
national security apparatus [and] anti-Castro Cubans. JFK incurred the wrath of
his enemies and incubated a desire for revenge in many of them. The author will
convince many … that the likelihood of a conspiracy to assassinate JFK (and
maybe RFK) is significant. Talbot’s highly readable, at times gripping book
makes the case for releasing the classified documents pertaining to the JFK
assassination. Declassified JFK files reveal that in 1963, [CIA agent George]
Joannides was the agent in charge of one of the most powerful Cuban anti-Castro
organizations in Miami, the Revolutionary Students Directorate, or DRE. A few
months before JFK’s assassination, the DRE had significant contact with Lee
Harvey Oswald.

In the course of four intensive investigations of the JFK
assassination, however, the CIA failed to divulge information about this
connection, or even that Joannides was the CIA officer assigned to manage the
DRE, and refused to release important parts of Joannides’ personnel file.

In September, on grounds of national security, the CIA successfully thwarted a
request for such information. Until it is released, many … will reasonably
speculate that crucial information about the JFK assassination is being

CIA role claim in Kennedy killing

2006-11-21, BBC News

New video and photographic
evidence…puts three senior CIA operatives at the scene of Robert Kennedy’s
assassination. It reveals that the operatives and four unidentified associates
were at the Ambassador Hotel, Los Angeles in the moments before and after the
shooting on 5 June, 1968. The CIA had no domestic jurisdiction and some of the
officers were based in South-East Asia at the time, with no reason to be in Los
Angeles. Kennedy had just won the California Democratic primary on an anti-War
ticket and was set to challenge Nixon for the White House. A 24-year-old
Palestinian, Sirhan Sirhan, was arrested as the lone assassin. However, even
under hypnosis, he has never been able to remember the shooting and defence
psychiatrists concluded he was in a trance at the time. Witnesses placed
Sirhan’s gun several feet in front of Kennedy but the autopsy showed the fatal
shot came from one inch behind.

Dr Herbert Spiegel, a world authority on
hypnosis at Columbia University, believes Sirhan may have been hypnotically
programmed to act as a decoy for the real assassin.
Three of these men have
been positively identified as senior officers who worked together in 1963 at
JMWAVE, the CIA’s Miami base. David Morales was Chief of Operations and once
told friends: “I was in Dallas when we got the son of a bitch and I was in
Los Angeles when we got the little bastard.” George Joannides was Chief of

Psychological Warfare
. Now, we see him at the Ambassador Hotel the night
a second Kennedy is assassinated. Gordon Campbell was Chief of Maritime
Operations and George Joannides was Chief of Psychological Warfare Operations.


There is
ample evidence that Sirhan Sirhan was a programmed Manchurian Candidate.
Declassified CIA documents show that U.S. intelligence services were creating
programmed assassins back as early as the 1950s. For reliable, verifiable

The secrets and lies that a Cold-War
warrior took to his grave


London Times

When the old spymaster thought he
was dying, his eldest son came to visit him. In the CIA, [Howard Hunt] had
helped to mastermind the violent removal of a duly elected leftist president in
Guatemala and assisted in subterfuges that led to the murder of Che Guevara.
But his first-born son [Saint] was by his side now. For years, he and Saint had
hardly spoken. Then Saint came to him wanting to know if he had any information
about JFK’s assassination. His father had sworn in two government
investigations that he didn’t. But now, in August 2003, propped up in his sick
bed, he began to write down the names of men who participated in a plot to kill
the president. He scribbled the initials “LBJ”, standing for
Kennedy’s vice-president, Lyndon Johnson. Under “LBJ”, connected by a
line, he wrote the name Cord Meyer. Meyer was a CIA agent whose wife had an
affair with JFK; later she was murdered, a case that has never been solved.
Next, his father connected to Meyer’s name the name Bill Harvey, another CIA
agent; also connected to Meyer’s name was the name David Morales, another CIA
man and a well-known, vicious black-operations specialist. Then his father
connected to Morales’s name, with a line, the framed words “French Gunman
Grassy Knoll”.

So there it was: according to Hunt, LBJ had Kennedy
killed. And that Lee Harvey Oswald wasn’t the only shooter in Dallas.
was also, on the grassy knoll, a French gunman, presumably the Corsican mafia
assassin Lucien Sarti. A few weeks later, Saint received in the mail a tape
recording from his dad. Hunt’s voice on the cassette is weak and grasping, but
he essentially remakes the same points he made in his handwritten narrative.


Though this
article interesting refers to Saint as a “conspiracy nut,” if you
take the time to read it, you will find it raises many serious questions about
the Kennedy assassination. The History Channel has made an excellent
documentary series showing beyond doubt there was more than one gunman. To

New York Review of Books

It is disappointing to learn that
the Central Intelligence Agency filed motions in federal court in May 2005 to
block disclosure of records related to the assassination of President John F.
Kennedy forty-one years ago.

The spirit of the law is clear. The
JFK Records Act of 1992, approved unanimously by Congress, mandated that all
assassination-related records be reviewed and disclosed
“immediately.” When Morley filed his lawsuit in December 2003,
thirteen published JFK authors supported his request for the records in an open
letter to The New York Review of Books (
Eighteen months later, the CIA is still stonewalling. The agency now
acknowledges that it possesses an undisclosed number of documents…which it
will not release in any form. Thus records related to Kennedy’s assassination
are still being hidden for reasons of “national security.”


This letter

Norman Mailer,

Oliver Stone,

Was Robert Kennedy killed by a real
‘Manchurian candidate’-style assassin?


The Independent (One of the UK’s leading newspapers)

The circumstances surrounding the
assassination of Robert Kennedy are being resurrected and re-examined in an
attempt to establish the truth of what happened that night in the cramped
pantry of a Los Angeles hotel. New evidence has emerged [in] the case of Sirhan
Sirhan, who was convicted of the assassination. Celebrities and journalists are
joining the campaign for a federal investigation, which has been sparked in
part by a new book,

by the British author Peter Evans. Evans, who spent 10 years researching the
book, has unearthed evidence to support Sirhan’s contention that he was
hypnotised into being the “fall guy” for the murder. Evans identifies
the hypnotist, who had worked on CIA mind control programmes and who was later
found dead in mysterious circumstances. Bullet holes in the walls and ceiling
demonstrate conclusively that more than one gunman fired shots at Senator

Both Evans and Sirhan’s lawyer, Larry Teeter, are convinced that
the Palestinian activist was chosen to be a Manchurian Candidate-style
assassin. The assassination, they say, was carried out by a professional hitman
who fled immediately, leaving Sirhan to take the blame.
Teeter … said:
“I know it was done. It was consistent with the US government’s programme
developed by the CIA and Military Intelligence to enable handlers to get people
to commit crimes with no knowledge of what they are doing.” Evans goes
further and names the hypnotist as a Dr William Joseph Bryan Jnr. He had worked
on a

CIA mind-control programme
called MKULTRA. Dr Bryan was found dead in a Las Vegas hotel room in 1978. He
had either shot himself or was murdered. The case remains unsolved.



Martin Luther King shooting tapes
released online


London Times,,11069-2120209,00.html

Thirty-eight years after he was
assassinated on a motel balcony, photographs, recordings and police files that
describe the death of Martin Luther King Jr. have been placed on the

internet. On
yesterday’s anniversary of Dr King’s death, the Shelby County Register’s office
in Memphis, Tennessee, made available hours of tapes, including hurried police
calls from the scene of the crime, hundreds of

and thousands of pages of files and transcripts of the trial of James Earl Ray,
the man found guilty of the shooting. Dr King was … in the city, and under
police surveillance, trying to lead a peaceful protest of sanitation workers.

subsequent hour of calls, edited to 18 minutes on the website, show the rapid
pace of events that later became the US Government’s case against Ray, who
first admitted shooting Dr King before recanting and insisting for the rest of
his life, with the support of the King family, that he was framed for the
Ray … died in jail in 1998 after four investigations, including a
review by the Department of Justice, failed to find evidence to support a
theory that Dr King was shot on the orders of a Memphis bar-owner.


article fails to mention a key fact. At a 1999 court trial held in Memphis, the
family of Rev. King accused elements of the U.S. government of complicity in
King’s death. After one month of hearings from 70 witnesses,

a jury composed
of six white and six black jurors took only one hour to find the U.S.
government, the state of Tennessee, the city of Memphis, the Memphis police,
and several individuals guilty of murdering King
. Yet the mainstream media
completely boycotted this trial. Thankfully, CBC (Canada’s PBS) gave it some
coverage. To see a CBC clip of this highly revealing trial, go to minute 19 of

The Secret Government: The
Constitution in Crisis

1987-11-04, Documentary

The Secret Government is an
interlocking network of official functionaries, spies, mercenaries,
ex-generals, profiteers and superpatriots, who, for a variety of motives,
operate outside the legitimate institutions of government.

Russians had been our ally against the Nazis, an expedient alliance for the
sake of war. Now they were our enemy. To fight them we turned to some of the
very men who had inflicted on humanity the horrors of Hitler’s madness. We

hired Nazis
as American spies. Admiral Gene La Rocque: “That National Security Act of
1947 changed dramatically the direction of this great nation. It established
the framework for a national security state. Never have we had a National
Security Council so concerned about the nation’s security that we’re always
looking for threats and looking how to

orchestrate our society to oppose
those threats. National Security was invented, almost, in 1947, and now it has
become the prime mover of everything we do. The National Security Act also gave
us the Central Intelligence Agency.” In 1975 … Congress took its first
public look at the Secret Government. Senator Frank Church chaired the Select
Committee to study government operations. The hearings opened the books on a
string of lethal activities, from the use of electric pistols and poison
pellets, to Mafia connections and drug experiments. And they gave us a detailed
account of assassination plots against foreign leaders and the overthrowing of
sovereign governments. This is a system easily corrupted. While freedom does
have enemies in the world, it can also be undermined here at home, in the dark,
by those posing as its friends.

Brainwash victims win cash claims


London Times,,2090-1313808,00.html

Hundreds of mentally ill patients
who were subjected to barbaric CIA-funded brainwashing experiments … could be
entitled to compensation following a landmark court ruling.

Doctor Ewan
Cameron, who became one of the world’s leading psychiatrists, developed
techniques used by Nazi scientists to wipe out the existing personalities of
people in his care.
Cameron … was recruited by the CIA during the cold
war while working at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. He carried out
mind-control experiments using drugs such as LSD on hundreds of patients, but
only 77 of them were awarded compensation. Now a landmark ruling by a Federal
Court judge in Montreal will allow more than 250 former patients, whose claims
were rejected, to seek compensation. Last week, Alan Stein, of Montreal law
firm Stein and Stein … confirmed he was in the process of contacting former
clients who could now renew their appeal. “There are about 200 people
still due compensation,” he said.

Using techniques similar to those
portrayed in the celebrated novel

The Manchurian Candidate,
it was believed that people could be brainwashed and reprogrammed to carry out
specific acts. Cameron developed a range of depatterning
“treatments”. Patients were woken from drug-induced stupors two or
three times a day for multiple electric shocks. In a specially designed
“sleep room” made famous by Anne Collins’s

book of the same name,
Cameron placed a speaker under the patient’s pillow and relayed negative
messages for 16 hours a day. Cameron … rose to become the first president of
the World Psychiatric Association.

What Did the C.I.A. Do to His


New York Times…

For a quarter of a century, [Eric
Olson] has believed that the Central Intelligence Agency murdered his father, a
United States government scientist. On Nov. 28, 1953, around 2 a.m. [the] night
manager at the Statler Hotel … in New York rushed out the front door … to
find a middle-aged man lying on the sidewalk. The man had fallen from the 10th
floor — apparently after crashing through a closed window. [In late July,
1975] the C.I.A.’s director, William Colby [provided Olson’s] family …
declassified documents relating to Frank Olson’s death. Olson had not been a
civilian employee of the Department of the Army. He had been a C.I.A. employee
working at Fort Detrick. Olson’s specialty, it turned out, had been the
development of aerosols for the delivery of anthrax. The Colby documents were
… full of unexplained terms like the ”Artichoke” and ”

projects. These turned out to be the precursors of what became known as

C.I.A. project, beginning in the Korean War, to explore the use of drugs like
LSD as truth serums, as well as botulism and anthrax, for use in covert
assassination. The documents claimed that during a meeting between the C.I.A.
and Fort Detrick scientists … on Nov. 19,1953, Sidney Gottlieb of the C.I.A.
slipped LSD into Olson’s glass of Cointreau.

Olson, a scientist by training,
would have known that he was working for a government that had put Nazi
scientists on trial at Nuremberg for immoral experiments on human beings. Now,
in the late summer of 1953, [Olson] faced up to the possibility that his own
government was doing the same thing.
Slipping LSD into Olson’s Cointreau
was … designed to get him to talk … to assess what kind of risk he posed
and then eliminate him if necessary.

Son probes strange death of WMD


San Francisco Chronicle (San Francisco’s leading

Eric Olson now has a new verb for
what happened to his father, Frank Olson, who worked for the Army’s top-secret
Special Operations Division at Fort Detrick, where he developed bioweapons and
experimented with mind-control drugs. Eric Olson found the verb in a 1950s CIA
manual. The verb is “dropped.” And the manual is a how-to guide for
assassins. “The most efficient accident, in simple assassination, is a
fall of 75 feet or more onto a hard surface,” the manual says, adding
helpfully: “It will usually be necessary to stun or drug the subject
before dropping him.” Eric Olson believes his father — who developed
misgivings about his work and tried to resign — was murdered by government
agents to protect dark government secrets.

“No assassination
instructions should ever be written or recorded,” says the CIA
assassination manual. “Decision and instructions should be confined to an
absolute minimum of persons.” It adds: “For secret assassination the
contrived accident is the most effective technique.
When successfully
executed, it causes little excitement and is only casually investigated.”
William P. Walter, 78, who supervised anthrax production at Detrick, says
Olson’s colleagues were divided about his death. “Some say he jumped. Some
say he had help,” Walter says. “I’m one of the ‘had-help’
people.” So is James Starrs, a George Washington University forensic
pathologist who … called the evidence “rankly and starkly suggestive of
homicide.” In a report to the CIA on the death, [Harold] Abramson, [a
doctor who had experimented with LSD] wrote that the LSD experiment was
designed “especially to trap (Olson).” This … raised a troubling
possibility: that the LSD experiment was actually designed to see whether Olson
could still be trusted to keep the agency’s dark secrets.


Frank Olson
was just one of many tragic casualties of the CIA’s mind-control programs. For

“The damn psychic spies should be keeping their damn mouths shut, instead
