Poisoned with Cancer

Cancer the secret weapon?

The heart of the matter

Monday, February 27, 2012

US Senators Frank Church and John Tower examine a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) poison dart gun that causes cancer and heart attacks, during the US Senate Select Committee’s investigation into the assassination plots on foreign leaders in 1975.

It was a case destined for the X-Files and conspiracy theorists alike, when Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez speculated that the US might have developed a way to weaponise cancer, after several Latin American leaders were diagnosed with the disease. The list includes former Argentine president, Nestor Kirchner (colon cancer) Brazil’s president Dilma Rousseff (lymphoma cancer), her predecessor Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva (throat cancer), Chavez (undisclosed), former Cuban president Fidel Castro (stomach cancer) Bolivian president, Evo Morales (nasal cancer) and Paraguayan president Fernando Lugo (lymphoma cancer). What do they have in common besides cancer? All of them are left-wing leaders. Coincidence? In his December 28, 2011 end-of-year address to the Venezuelan military, Chavez hinted that the US might have found a way to give Latin American leaders cancer.
 
“Would it be so strange that they’ve invented the technology to spread cancer and we won’t know about it for 50 years?” Chavez asked. “It is very hard to explain, even with the law of probabilities, what has been happening to some leaders in Latin America. It’s at the very least strange,” he said. Chavez said he received warning from Cuba’s former leader Fidel Castro, who has survived hundreds of unsuccessful assassination attempts. “Fidel always told me, ‘Chavez take care. These people have developed technology. You are very careless. Take care what you eat, what they give you to eat … a little needle and they inject you with I don’t know what’,” he said.
 
Unsolved mysteries
Sounds far-fetched? WikiLeaks reported that in 2008 the American Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) asked its embassy in Paraguay to collect all biometric data, including the DNA of all four presidential candidates. Right here in the Caribbean conspiracy theorists believe that the CIA also had a hand in the deaths of T&T’s own civil rights activist and Pan-Africanist Kwame Ture, Jamaica’s legendary reggae icon Bob Marley and Dominican Prime Minister Rosie Douglas. During the United States Senate Select Committee’s investigation into CIA’s assassination plots on foreign leaders in 1975 it was revealed that the agency had developed a poison dart gun that caused heart attacks and cancer.
The gun fired a frozen liquid poison-tipped dart, the width of a human hair and a quarter of an inch long, that could penetrate clothing, was almost undetectable and left no trace in a victim’s body. 
 
Kwame Ture or Stokely Carmichael, the radical former Black Panther leader who inaugurated the Black Power Movement of the 1960s went to his death claiming that the CIA had poisoned him with cancer. Ture died of prostate cancer at the age of 57 in 1998. His friend, multi-media artist and activist Wayne “Rafiki” Morris, said Ture said “without equivocation” that the CIA gave him cancer. “I knew Kwame from 1976 and for all the time I knew him he never drank or smoked cigarettes,” Morris said. “He was a very good swimmer and exercised regularly, he didn’t have any medical condition and was very conscious of his health.”
 
If the shoe fit...
Bob Marley died of melanoma cancer in 1981. He was 36-years-old. The official report is he contracted cancer after injuring his toe which never healed while playing football in 1977. The conspiracy theorists allege that Marley was given a pair of boots with a piece of copper wire inside that was coated with a carcinogenic substance that pricked his big toe by Carl Colby, son of the late CIA director William Colby. There is an eerie similarity between Marley and Castro involving poisoned shoes.  Cuban ambassador to T&T, Humberto Rivero said the CIA and Cuban exiles tried more than 600 attempts to kill Castro from exploding cigars, injecting him with cancer, to a wet suit lined with poison. In the case of Marley the CIA allegedly used cancer in his shoes, for Castro they placed the highly toxic poison thallium salts in his shoes. After only eight months being elected as Prime Minister of Dominica, radical politician Rosie Douglas was found dead on the floor of his residence in 2000.
 
The cause of death was listed as a result of a massive heart attack. His heart was twice its normal size. Just like Ture and Marley, he exercised regularly. Douglas’ eldest son, Cabral insisted that his father had been murdered and also hinted at the involvement of the CIA. Moshood Abiola, the man widely believed to have won the 1993 elections in Nigeria, was reported to have died of a heart attack after he was given a cocktail which expanded his heart to twice its size in 1998. Jack Ruby, the assassin who killed US president John Kennedy’s alleged assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, died from lung cancer in 1967. What was strange was the cancer cells were not the type that originate in the respiratory system. He told his family that he was injected with cancer cells in prison when he was treated with shots for a cold. He died just before he was to testify before Congress.
 
Lockerbie bomber, Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, developed terminal cancer. The leader of Canada’s left-leaning Opposition party, the New Democratic Party (NDP), Jack Layton died of an undisclosed form of cancer in 2011. It will appear that having leftist tendencies are hazardous to a person’s health. From 1953 the Russians were using microwaves to attack the US embassy staff in Moscow, Russia. One third of the staff eventually died of cancer from this microwave irradiation. Imagine how advanced and sophisticated assassination technology has become today.

THE COURT OF INTERNATIONAL JUSTICE


The world was stunned to learn that India has now tested nuclear weapons. For many years, all nations have been concerned about the proliferation of atomic explosives. Even in their distress, no one seems to be interested in the historic or the psychological record of why these weapons were developed, and what special breed of mankind devoted themselves to this diabolical goal.

Despite the lack of public interest, the record is clear, and easily available to anyone who is interested. My interest in this subject, dormant for many years was suddenly rekindled during my annual lecture tour in Japan. My hosts had taken me to the city of Nagasaki for the first time. Without telling me their plans, they entered the Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum. I thought it would be an interesting experience, but, to my surprise, when I walked into the exhibition rooms, I was suddenly overcome by sadness. Realizing that I was about to burst into tears, I moved away from my companions, and stood biting my lip. Even so, it seemed impossible to control myself. I was surrounded by the most gruesome objects, the fingers of a human hand fused with glass, a photograph of the shadow of a man on a brick wall; the man had been vaporized in the explosion .

A NEW MISSION
When I returned to the United States, I knew1 had to unearth the sinister figures behind greatest of human catastrophes. It took many weeks of research to uncover what turned out to be the most far-reaching conspiracy of all time, the program of a few dedicated revolutionaries to seize control of the entire world, by inventing the powerful weapon ever unveiled.

The story begins in Germany.   In the 1930s, Germany and Japan had a number of scientists icing on the development of nuclear fission. In both of these countries, their leaders sternly forbade them to continue their research.   Adolf Hitler said he would never allow anyone in Germany to work to work on such an inhumane weapon.

The Emperor of Japan let his scientists know that he would never approve such a weapon.   At that time the United States had no one working on nuclear fission. The disgruntled German scientists contacted friends in the United States, and were told that there was a possibility of government support for their work here.   As Don Beyer tells these immigrants to the United States pushed their program.
"Leo Szilard, together with his long time friends and fellow Hungarian physicists, Eugene Wigner and Edward Teller, agreed that the President must be warned; fission bomb tehnology was not so farfetched. The Jewish emigres, now living in America, had personal experience of fascism in Europe. In 1939, the three physicists enlisted the support of Albert Einstein, letter dated August 2 signed by Einstein was delivered by Alexander Sachs to Franklin D. Roosevelt at the White House on October 11, 39."

CRIMINALS ON DISPLAY
At the Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum, photographs of two men are prominently displayed; Albert Einstein, and J. Robert Oppenheimer, who developed the atomic bomb at Los Alamos laboratories, New Mexico. Also on display is a statement from General Eisenhower, who was then supreme Military Commander, which is found in number of books about Eisenhower, and which can be found on p.426, Eisenhower by Stephen E. Ambrose, Simon & Shuster, NY, 1983.

"Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson first told Eisenhower of the bomb's existence. Eisenhower was engulfed by "a feeling of depression'. When Stimson said the United States proposed to use the bomb against Japan, Eisenhower voiced 'my grave misgivings, first on the basis of my belief that Japan was already defeated and that dropping the bomb was completely unnecessary, and secondly because I thought that our country should avoid shocking world opinion by the use (of atomic weapons).' Stimson was upset by Eisenhower's attitude 'almost angrily refuting the reasons I gave for my quick conclusion'. Three days later, Eisenhower flew to Berlin, where he met with Truman and his principal advisors. Again Eisenhower recommended against using the bomb, and again was ignored.

Other books on Eisenhower state that he endangered his career by his protests against the bomb, which the conspirators in the highest level of the United States government had already sworn to use against Japan, regardless of any military developments. Eisenhower could not have known that Stimson was a prominent member of Skull and Bones at Yale, the Brotherhood of Death, founded by the Russell Trust in 1848 as a bunch of the German Illuminati, or that they had played prominent roles in organizing wars and revolutions since that time. Nor could he have known that President Truman had only had one job in his career, as a Masonic organizer for the State of Missouri, and that the lodges he built up later sent him to the United States Senate and then to the presidency.

ATOMIC TERRORISM
The man who set all this in motion was Albert Einstein, who left Europe and came to the United States in October 1933. His wife said that he "regarded human beings with detestation". He had previously corresponded with Sigmund Freud about his projects of "peace" and "disarmament", although Freud later said he did not believe that Einstein ever accepted any of his theories. Einstein had a personal interest in Freud's work because his son Eduard spent his life in mental institutions, undergoing both insulin therapy and electroshock treatment, none of which produced any change in his condition.

When Einstien arrived in the United States, he was feted as a famous scientist, and was invited to the White House by President and Mrs. Roosevelt. He was soon deeply involved with Eleanor Roosevelt in her many leftwing causes, in which Einstein heartily concurred. Some of Einstein's biographers hail the modern era as "the Einstein Revolution" and "the Age of Einstein", possibly because he set in motion the program of nuclear fission in the United States. His letter to Roosevelt requesting that the government inaugurate an atomic bomb program was obviously stirred by his lifelong commitment to "peace and disarmament". His actual commitment was to Zionism; Ronald W. Clark mentions in Einstein; His Life And Times, Avon, 1971, p.377, "He would campaign with the Zionists for a Jewish homeland in Palestine." On p.460, Clark quotes Einstein, "As a Jew I am from today a supporter of the Jewish Zionist efforts." (1919) Einstein's letter to Roosevelt, dated august 2, 1939, was delivered personally to President Roosevelt by Alexander Sachs on October 11. Why did Einstein enlist an intermediary to bring this letter to Roosevelt, with whom he was on friendly terms? The atomic bomb program could not be launched without the necessary Wall Street sponsorship. Sachs, a Russian Jew, listed his profession as "economist" but was actually a bagman for the Rothschilds, who regularly delivered large sums of cash to Roosevelt in the White House. Sachs was an advisor to Eugene Meyer of the Lazard Freres International Banking House, and also with Lehman Brothers, another well known banker. Sachs' delivery of the Einstein letter to the White House let Roosevelt know that the Rothschilds approved of the project and wished him to go full speed ahead.

A UNITED NATIONS PROJECT
In May of 1945, the architects of postwar strategy, or, as they liked to call themselves, the "Masters of the Universe", gathered in San Francisco at the plush Palace Hotel to write the Charter for the United Nations. Several of the principals retired for a private meeting in the exclusive Garden Room. The head of the United States delegation had called this secret meeting with his top aide, Alger Hiss, representing the president of the United States and the Soviet KGB; John Foster Dulles, of the Wall Street law firm of Sullivan and Cromwell, whose mentor, William Nelson Cromwell, had been called a "professional revolutionary" on the floor of Congress; and W. Averill Harriman, plenipotentiary extraordinary, who had spent the last two years in Moscow directing Stalin's war for survival. These four men represented the awesome power of the American Republic in world affairs, yet of the four, only Secretary of State Edward Stettinius Jr., had a position authorized by the Constitution. Stettinius called the meeting to order to discuss an urgent matter; the Japanese were already privately suing for peace, which presented a grave crisis. The atomic bomb would not be ready for several more months. "We have already lost Germany," Stettinius said. "If Japan bows out, we will not have a live population on which to test the bomb."

"But, Mr. Secretary," said Alger Hiss, "no one can ignore the terrible power of this weapon." "Nevertheless," said Stettinius, "our entire postwar program depends on terrifying the world with the atomic bomb." "To accomplish that goal," said John Foster Dulles, "you will need a very good tally. I should say a million." "Yes," replied Stettinius, "we are hoping for a million tally in Japan. But if they surrender, we won't have anything." "Then you have to keep them in the war until the bomb is ready," said John Foster Dulles. "That is no problem. Unconditional surrender." "They won't agree to that," said Stettinius. "They are sworn to protect the Emperor." "Exactly," said John Foster Dulles. "Keep Japan in the war another three months, and we can use the bomb on their cities; we will end this war with the naked fear of all the peoples of the world, who will then bow to our will."

Edward Stettinius Jr. was the son of a J.P. Morgan partner who had been the world's largest munitions dealer in the First World War. He had been named by J.P. Morgan to oversee all purchases of munitions by both France and England in the United States throughout the war. John Foster Dulles was also an accomplished warmonger. In 1933, he and his brother Allen had rushed to Cologne to meet with Adolf Hitler and guaranteed him the funds to maintain the Nazi regime. The Dulles brothers were representing their clients, Kuhn Loeb Co., and the Rothschilds. Alger Hiss was the golden prince of the communist elite in the united States. When he was chosen as head of the prestigious Carnegie Endowment for International Peace after World War II, his nomination was seconded by John Foster Dulles. Hiss was later sent to prison for perjury for lying about his exploits as a Soviet espionage agent.

This secret meeting in the Garden Room was actually the first military strategy session of the United Nations, because it was dedicated to its mission of exploding the world's first atomic weapon on a living population. It also forecast the entire strategy of the Cold War, which lasted forty-three years, cost American taxpayers five trillion dollars, and accomplished exactly nothing, as it was intended to do. Thus we see that the New World Order has based its entire strategy on the agony of the hundreds of thousands of civilians burned alive at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, including many thousands of children sitting in their schoolrooms. These leaders had learned from their master, Josef Stalin, that no one can rule without mass terrorism, which in turn required mass murder. As Senator Vandenberg, leader of the Republican loyal opposition, was to say (as quoted in American Heritage magazine, August 1977), "We have got to scare the hell out of "em."

THE JEWISH HELL-BOMB
The atomic bomb was developed at the Los Alamos Laboratories in New Mexico. The top secret project was called the Manhattan Project, because its secret director, Bernard Baruch, lived in Manhattan, as did many of the other principals. Baruch had chosen Maj. Gen. Leslie R. Groves to head the operation. He had previously built the Pentagon, and had a good reputation among the Washington politicians, who usually came when Baruch beckoned.

The scientific director at Los Alamos was J. Robert Oppenheimer, scion of a prosperous family of clothing merchants. In Oppenheimer; the Years Of Risk, by James Kunetka, Prentice Hall, NY, 1982, Kunetka writes, p. 106, "Baruch was especially interested in Oppenheimer for the position of senior scientific adviser." The project cost an estimated two billion dollars. No other nation in the world could have afforded to develop such a bomb. The first successful test of the atomic bomb occurred at the Trinity site, two hundred miles south of Los Alamos at 5:29:45 a.m. on July 16, 1945. Oppenheimer was beside himself at the spectacle. He shrieked, "I am become Death, the Destroyer of worlds." Indeed, this seemed to be the ultimate goal of the Manhattan Project, to destroy the world. There had been considerable fear among the scientists that the test explosion might indeed set off a chain reaction, which would destroy the entire world. Oppenheimer's exultation came from his realization that now his people had attained the ultimate power, through which they could implement their five-thousand-year desire to rule the entire world.

THE BUCK PASSES TO TRUMAN
Although Truman liked to take full credit for the decision to drop the atomic bomb on Japan, in fact, he was advised by a prestigious group, The National Defense Research Committee, consisting of George L. Harrison, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York; Dr. James B. Conant, president of Harvard, who had spent the First World War developing more effective poison gases, and who in 1942 had been commissioned by Winston Churchill to develop an Anthrax bomb to be used on Germany, which would have killed every living thing in Germany. Conant was unable to perfect the bomb before Germany surrendered, otherwise he would have had another line to add to his resume.  His service on Truman's Committee which advised him to drop the atomic bomb on Japan, added to his previous record as a chemical warfare professional, allowed me to describe him in papers filed before the United States Court of Claims in 1957, as "the most notorious war criminal of the Second World War". As Gauleiter of Germany after the war, he had ordered the burning of my book, The Federal Reserve Conspiracy, ten thousand copies having been published in Oberammergau, the site of the world-famed Passion Play.

Also on the committee were Dr. Karl Compton, and James F. Byrnes, acting Secretary of State. For thirty years, Byrnes had been known as Bernard Baruch's man in Washington. With his Wall Street profits, Baruch had built the most lavish estate in South Carolina, which he named Hobcaw Barony. As the wealthiest man in South Carolina, this epitome of the carpet-bagger also controlled the political purse strings. Now Baruch was in a position to dictate to Truman, through his man Byrnes, that he should drop the atomic bomb on Japan.

LIPMAN SIEW
Despite the fact that the Manhattan Project was the most closely guarded secret of World War II, one man, and one many only, was allowed to observe everything and to know everything about the project. He was Lipman Siew, a Lithuanian Jew who had come to the United States as a political refugee at the age of seventeen. He lived in Boston on Lawrence St., and decided to take the name of William L. Laurence. At Harvard, he became a close friend of James B. Conant and was tutored by him. When Laurence went to New York, he was hired by Herbert Bayard Swope, editor of the New York World, who was known as Bernard Baruch's personal publicity agent. Baruch owned the World. In 1930, Laurence accepted an offer from the New York Times to become its science editor. He states in Who's Who that he "was selected by the heads of the atomic bomb project as sole writer and public relations." How one could be a public relations writer for a top secret project was not explained. Laurence was the only civilian present at the historic explosion of the test bomb on July 16, 1945. Less than a month later, he sat in the copilots seat of the B-29 on the fateful Nagasaki bombing run.

WILL JAPAN SURRENDER BEFORE THE BOMB IS DROPPED?
There were still many anxious moments for the conspirators, who planned to launch a new reign of terror throughout the world. Japan had been suing for peace. Each day it seemed less likely that she could stay in the war. On March 9 and 10, 1945, 325 B-29s had burned thirty-five square miles of Tokyo, leaving more than one hundred thousand Japanese dead in the ensuing firestorm. Of Japan's 66 biggest cities, 59 had been mostly destroyed. 178 square miles of urban dwellings had been burned, 500,000 died in the fires, and now twenty million Japanese were homeless. Only four cities had not been destroyed; Hiroshima, Kokura, Niigata, and Nagasaki. Their inhabitants had no inkling that they had been saved as target cities for the experimental atomic bomb. Maj. Gen. Leslie Groves, at Bernard Baruch's insistence, had demanded that Kyoto be the initial target of the bomb. Secretary of War Stimson objected, saying that as the ancient capital of Japan, the city of Kyoto had hundreds of historic wooden temples, and no military targets. The Jews wanted to destroy it precisely because of its great cultural importance to the Japanese people.

THE HORROR OF HIROSHIMA
While the residents of Hiroshima continued to watch the B-29s fly overhead without dropping bombs on them, they had no inkling of the terrible fate which the scientists had reserved for them. William Manchester quotes General Douglas MacArtbur in American Caesar, Little Brown, 1978, p.437
[quoting:] There was another Japan, and MacArthur was one of the few Americans who suspected its existence. He kept urging the Pentagon and the State Department to be alert for conciliatory gestures. The General predicted that the break would come from Tokyo, not the Japanese army. The General was right. A dovish coalition was forming in the Japanese capital, and it was headed by Hirohito himself, who had concluded in the spring of 1945 that a negotiated peace was the only way to end his nation's agony. Beginning in early May, a six-man council of Japanese diplomats explored ways to accommodate the Allies. The delegates informed top military officials that "our resistance is finished". [End quoting]
On p.359, Gar Alperowitz quotes Brig. Gen. Carter W. Clarke, in charge of preparing the MAGIC summary in 1945, who stated in a 1959 historical interview, "We brought them down to an abject surrender through the accelerated sinking of their merchant marine and hunger alone, and when we didn't need to do it, and knew we didn't need to do it, we used them as an experiment for two atomic bombs."

Although President Truman referred to himself as the sole authority in the decision to drop the bomb, in fact he was totally influenced by Bernard Baruch's man in Washington, James F. Byrnes. Gar Alperowitz states, p. 196, "Byrnes spoke with the authority of—personally represented—the president of the United States on all bomb-related matters in the Interim Committee's deliberations." David McCullough, in his laudatory biography of Truman, which was described as "a valentine", admitted that "Truman didn't know his own Secretary of State, Stettinius. He had no background in foreign policy, no expert advisors of his own."
The tragedy of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was that a weak, inexperienced president, completely under the influence of Byrnes and Baruch, allowed himself to be manipulated into perpetrating a terrible massacre. In the introduction to Hiroshima's Shadows, we find that "Truman was moving in quite the opposite direction, largely under the influence of Byrnes. The atom bomb for Byrnes was an instrument of diplomacy-atomic diplomacy." (p.ix)

MASS MURDER
On August 6, 1945, a uranium bomb 3-235, 20 kilotons yield, was exploded 1850 feet in the air above Hiroshima, for maximum explosive effect. It devastated four square miles, and killed 140,000 of the 255,000 inhabitants. In Hiroshima's Shadows, we find a statement by a doctor who treated some of the victims; p.415, Dr. Shuntaro Hida: "It was strange to us that Hiroshima had never been bombed, despite the fact that B-29 bombers flew over the city every day. Only after the war did I come to know that Hiroshima, according to American archives, had been kept untouched in order to preserve it as a target for the use of nuclear weapons. Perhaps, if the American administration and its military authorities had paid sufficient regard to the terrible nature of the fiery demon which mankind had discovered and yet knew so little about its consequences, the American authorities might never have used such a weapon against the 750,000 Japanese who ultimately became its victims."

Dr. Hida says that while treating the terribly mangled and burned victims, "My eyes were ready to overflow with tears. I spoke to myself and bit my lip so that I would not cry. If I had cried, I would have lost my courage to keep standing and working, treating dying victims of Hiroshima."

On p.433, Hiroshima's Shadows, Kensaburo Oe declares, "From the instant the atomic bomb exploded, it became the symbol of all human evil; it was a savagely primitive demon and most modern curse.... My nightmare stems from a suspicion that a 'certain trust in human strength' or 'humanism' flashed across the minds of American intellectuals who decided upon the project that concluded with the dropping of the bomb on Hiroshima."

In the introduction to Hiroshima's Shadows, we find that "One of the myths of Hiroshima is that the inhabitants were warned by leaflets that an atomic bomb would be dropped. The leaflets Leonard Nadler and William P. Jones recall seeing in the Hiroshima Museum in 1960 and 1970 were dropped after the bombing. This happened because the President's Interim Committee on the Atomic Bomb decided on May 31 'that we could not give the Japanese any warning'. Furthermore, the decision to drop 'atomic' leaflets on Japanese cities was not made until August 7, the day after the Hiroshima bombing. They were not dropped until August 10, after Nagasaki had been bombed. We can say that the residents of Hiroshima received no advance warning about the use of the atomic bomb. On June 1, 1945, a formal and official decision was taken during a meeting of the so-called Interim Committee not to warn the populations of the specific target cities. James Byrnes and Oppenheimer insisted that the bombs must be used without prior warning."

"Closely linked to the question of whether a warning of an atomic bomb attack was given to the civilian populations of the target cities is the third 'article of fifth' that underpins the American legend of Hiroshima; the belief that Hiroshima and Nagasaki were military targets. The Headquarters of the Japanese Second army were located in Hiroshima and approximately 20,000 men—of which about half, or 10,000 died in the attack. In Nagasaki, there were about 150 deaths among military personnel in the city. Thus, between the two cities, 4.4% of the total death toll was made up of military personnel. In short, more than 95% of the casualties were civilians."

On p.39 of Hiroshima's Shadows we find that (at Hiroshima) "strictly military damage was insignificant." How are we to reconcile this statement with Harry Truman's vainglorious boast in Off The Record; the Private Papers of Harry S. Truman Harper, 1980, p.304, "In 1945 I had ordered the Atomic Bomb dropped on Japan at two places devoted almost exclusively to war production." In fact, many thousands of the Hiroshima casualties were children sitting in their classrooms.

The bomb was dropped because (p.35) "The Manhattan Project's managers were lobbying to use the atomic bomb. Byrnes sat in on these meetings. Maj. Gen. Groves seems to have been the author of the claim that the use of the bomb would save a million American lives—-a figure in the realm of fantasy."

Truman himself variously stated that the use of the use of the atomic bomb saved "a quarter of a million American lives", a "half-million American lives", and finally settled on the Gen. Groves figure of "a million American lives saved."

Meanwhile (p.64) William L. Laurence, who was writing for the New York Times at full salary while also receiving a full salary from the War Department as the "public relations agent for the atomic bomb" published several stories in the New York Times denying that there had been any radiation effects on the victims of the Hiroshima bombing (Sept. 5, 1945 et seq.) in which he quotes General Groves' indignant comment, "The Japanese are still continuing their propaganda aimed at creating the impression we won the war unfairly and thus attempting to create sympathy for themselves."

(p.66) "The Legation of Switzerland on August 11, 1945 forwarded from Tokyo the following memorandum to the State Department (which sat on it for twenty-five years before finally releasing it): 'The Legation of Switzerland has received a communication from the Japanese Government.' On August 6, 1945, American airplanes released on the residential district of the town of Hiroshima, bombs of a new type, killing and injuring in one second a large number of civilians and destroying a great part of the town. Not only is the city of Hiroshima a provincial town without any protection or special military installations of any kind, but also none of the neighboring regions or towns constitutes a military objective."

The introduction to Hiroshima's Shadows concludes that (p.lxvii) "The claim that an invasion of the Japanese home islands was necessary without the use of the atomic bombs is untrue. The claim that an 'atomic warning' was given to the populace of Hiroshima is untrue. And the claim that both cities were key military targets is untrue."

A PILOT'S STORY
Corroboration of these statements is found in the remarkable record of Ellsworth Torrey Carrington, "Reflections of a Hiroshima Pilot", (p.9) "As part of the Hiroshima atomic battle plan my B-29 (named Jabbitt III, Captain John Abbott Wilson's third war plane) flew the weather observation mission over the secondary target of Kokura on August 6, 1945." (p. 10) "After the first bomb was dropped, the atom bomb command was very fearful that Japan might surrender before we could drop the second bomb, so our people worked around the clock, 24-hours-a-day to avoid such a misfortune." This is, of course, satire on Carrington's part. (p. 13) "in city after city all over the face of Japan (except for our cities spared because reserved for atomic holocaust) they ignited the most terrible firestorms in history with very light losses (of B-29s). Sometimes the heat from these firestorms was so intense that later waves of B-29s were caught by updrafts strong enough to loft them upwards from 4 or 5,000 feet all the way up to 8 or 10,000 feet. The major told us that the fire-bombing of Japan had proven successful far beyond anything they had imagined possible and that the 20th Air Force was running out of cities to burn. Already there were no longer (as of the first week in June 1945) any target cities left that were worth the attention of more than 50 B-29s, and on a big day, we could send up as many as 450 planes!" "The totality of the devastation in Japan was extraordinary, and this was matched by the near-totality of Japan's defencelessness." (as of June 1, 1945, before the atomic bombs were dropped.) (p. 14) "The Truman government censored and controlled all the war information that was allowed to reach the public, and of course, Truman had a vested interest in obscuring the truth so as to surreptitiously prolong the war and be politically able to use the atom bomb. Regarding the second element of the Roosevelt-Truman atomic Cold War strategy of deceiving the public into believing that Japan was still militarily viable in the spring and summer of 1945, the centerpiece was the terribly expensive and criminally unnecessary campaign against Okinawa.

Carrington quotes Admiral William D. Leahy, p. 245, I Was There, McGraw Hill: "A large part of the Japanese Navy was already on the bottom of the sea. The combined Navy surface and air force action even by this time had forced Japan into a position that made her early surrender inevitable. None of us then knew the potentialities of the atomic bomb, but it was my opinion, and I urged it strongly on the Joint Chiefs, that no major land invasion of the Japanese mainland was necessary to win the war. The JCS did order the preparation of plans for an invasion, but the invasion itself was never authorized."

Thus Truman, urged on by General Groves, claims that "a million American lives were saved" by the use of the atomic bomb, when no invasion had ever been authorized, and was not in the cards. Carrington continues, p. 16, "The monstrous truth is that the timing of the Okinawa campaign was exclusively related to the early August timetable of the atomic bomb. J'accuse!  I accuse Presidents Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman of deliberately committing war crimes against the American people for the sole purpose of helping set the stage for the criminally unnecessary use of atomic weapons on Japan."

Carrington further quotes Admiral Leahy, from I Was There, "It is my opinion that the use of this barbarous weapon at Hiroshima and Nagaski was of no material assistance in our war against Japan. The Japanese were already defeated and ready to surrender because of the effective sea blockade and the successful bombing with conventional weapons."

Carrington concludes, p.22, "Truman's wanton use of atomic weapons left the American people feeling dramatically less secure after winning World War II than they had ever felt before, and these feelings of insecurity have been exploited by unscrupulous Cold War Machine Politicians ever since." As Senator Vandenberg said, "We have to scare the hell out of 'em" in order to browbeat the American people into paying heavy taxes to support the Cold War.

DID THE ATOMIC BOMB WIN THE WAR AGAINST JAPAN?
Admiral William Leahy also stated in I Was There, "My own feeling is that being the first to use it (the atomic bomb) we had adopted an ethical standard common to the Barbarism of the Dark Ages. I was not taught to make war in that fashion, and wars cannot be won by destroying women and children."
Gar Alperowitz notes, p. 16, "On May 5, May 12 and June 7, the Office of Strategic Services (our intelligence operation), reported Japan was considering capitulation. Further messages came on May 18, July 7, July 13 and July 16."
Alperowitz points out, p.36, "The standing United States demand for 'unconditional surrender' directly threatened not only the person of the Emperor but such central tenets of Japanese culture as well."
Alperowitz also quotes General Curtis LeMay, chief of the Air Forces, p.334, "The war would have been over in two weeks without the Russians entering and without the atomic bomb. PRESS INQUIRY: You mean that, sir? Without the Russians and without the atomic bomb? LeMay: The atomic bomb had nothing to do with the end of the war at all." September 29, 1945, statement.

THE NAGASAKI BOMB
When the Air Force dropped the atomic bomb on Nagasaki, with William Laurence riding in the co-pilot's seat of the B-29, pretending to be Dr. Strangelove, here again the principal target was a Catholic church. P.93, The Fall Of Japan, by William Craig, Dial, NY, 1967, "the roof and masonry of the Catholic cathedral fell on the kneeling worshippers. All of them died." This church has now been rebuilt, and is a prominent feature of the Nagasaki tour.

After the terror bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the victorious Allies moved promptly to try Japanese officials for their "war crimes". From 1945-51 several thousand Japanese military men were found guilty of war crimes by an International Military Tribunal which met in Tokyo from 1946 to 1948. Twenty-eight Japanese military and civilian leaders were accused of having engaged in conspiracy to commit atrocities. The dissenting member of the Tokyo tribunal, Judge Radhabinod of India, dismissed the charge that Japanese leaders had conspired to commit atrocities, stating that a stronger case might be made against the victors, because the decision to use the atomic bomb resulted in indiscriminate murder.

A very popular movie in Japan today is Pride, The Fateful Moment, which shows Prime Minister General Hideki Tojo in a favorable light. With six others, he was hanged in 1968 as a war criminal. During his trial, his lawyers stated to the International Tribunal for the Far East, the Asian version of Nuremberg Trials, that Tojo's war crimes could not begin to approach the dropping of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The prosecutors immediately objected, and censored their statements. That was the last time there was any official recognition of the atomic bomb massacres in Japan. Japanese officials have been effectively prevented from taking any stand on this matter because the American military occupation, which officially ended in 1952 with the Treaty with Japan, was quietly continued. Today, 49,000 American troops are still stationed in Japan, and there is no public discussion of the crimes of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

AMERICAN MILITARY AUTHORITIES SAY ATOMIC BOMB UNNECESSARY
The most authoritative Air Force unit during World War II was the U.S. Strategic Bombing Survey, which selected targets on the basis of need, and which analyzed the results for future missions. In Hiroshima's Shadow, the U.S. Strategic Bombing Survey report of July 1, 1946 states, "The Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombs did not defeat Japan, nor by the testimony of the enemy leaders who ended the war did they persuade Japan to accept unconditional surrender. The Emperor, the lord privy seal, the prime minister, the foreign minister, and the navy minister had decided as early as May 1945 that the war should be ended even if it meant acceptance of defeat on allied terms.... It is the Survey's opinion that certainly prior to December 1, 1945 and in all probability prior to November 1, 1945, Japan would have surrendered even if the atomic bombs had not been dropped and even if no invasion had been planned or contemplated."

Both military, political and religious leaders spoke out against the atomic bombing of Japanese civilians. The Federal Council of the Churches of Christ in America issued a formal statement in March 1946 (cited by Gar Alperowitz):

"The surprise bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki are morally indefensible. Both bombings must be judged to have been unnecessary for winning the war. As the power that first used the atomic bomb under these circumstances, we have sinned grievously against the laws of God and against the people of Japan."—Commission on the Relation of the Church to the War in the Light of the Christian Faith.

On p.438, Gar Alperowitz quotes James M. Gillis, editor of Catholic World, "I would call it a crime were it not that the word 'crime' implies sin, and sin requires a consciousness of guilt. The action taken by the Untied States government was in defiance of every sentiment and every conviction upon which our civilization is based."

One of the most vociferous critics of the atomic bombings was David Lawrence, founder and editor of U.S. News and World Report. He signed a number of stinging editorials, the first on August 17, 1945.

"Military necessity will be our constant cry in answer to criticism, but it will never erase from our minds the simple truth, that we, of all civilized nations, though hesitating to use poison gas, did not hesitate to employ the most destructive weapon of all times indiscriminately against men, women and children." On October 5, Lawrence continued his attack, "The United States should be the first to condemn the atomic bomb and apologize for its use against Japan. Spokesmen for the Army Air Forces said it wasn't necessary and that the war had been won already. Competent testimony exists to prove that Japan was seeking to surrender many weeks before the atomic bomb came." On November 23, Lawrence wrote, "The truth is we are guilty. Our conscience as a nation must trouble us. We must confess our sin. We have used a horrible weapon to asphyxiate and cremate more than 100,000 men, women and children in a sort of super-lethal gas chamber— and all this in a war already won or which spokesman for our Air Forces tell us we could have readily won without the atomic bomb. We ought, therefore, to apologize in unequivocal terms at once to the whole world for our misuse of the atomic bomb."

David Lawrence was an avowed conservative, a successful businessman, who knew eleven presidents of the United States intimately, and was awarded the Medal of Freedom by President Richard M. Nixon, April 22, 1970.

ANOTHER EISENHOWER SPEAKS
Although Eisenhower never changed his opinion of the use of the atomic bomb, during his presidency he repeatedly voiced his opinion, as quoted by Steve Neal, The Eisenhowers Doubleday, 1978. P.225, "Ike would never lose his scepticism of the weapon and later referred to it as a 'hellish contrivance'."
His brother, Milton Eisenhower, a prominent educator, was even more vocal on this subject. As quoted by Gar Alperwitz, p.358, Milton Eisenhower said, "Our employment of this new force at Hiroshima and Nagasaki was a supreme provocation to other nations, especially the Soviet Union. Moreover, its use violated the normal standards of warfare by wiping out entire populations, mostly civilians, in the target cities. Certainly what happened at Hiroshima and Nagasaki will forever be on the conscience of the American people."

During his Presidency, Dwight Eisenhower tried to find peaceful uses for atomic energy. In The Eisenhower Diaries, p.261, we find that "The phrase 'atoms for peace' entered the lexicon of international affairs with a speech by Eisenhower before the United Nations December 8, 1953." Control of atomic energy had now given the New World Order clique enormous power, and Eisenhower, in his farewell speech to the American people on leaving the Presidency In Review (Doubleday, 1969), on January 17, 1961, warned, "In the councils of government we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the miliary-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist."

By failing to name the power behind the military-industrial complex, the international bankers, Eisenhower left the American people in the dark as to he was actually warning them against. To this day they do not understand what he was trying to say, that the international bankers, the Zionists and the Freemasons had formed an unholy alliance whose money and power could not be overcome by righteous citizens of the United States.

MACARTHUR'S WARNING
General Douglas MacArthur also tried to warn the American people of this threat, as quoted in American Ceaser, by William Manchester, Little Brown, 1978, p.692, "In 1957, he lashed out at large Pentagon budgets. 'Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear—kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor—with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it by furnishing the exorbitant funds demanded. Yet, in retrospect, these disasters seem never to have happened, seem never to have been quite real."

This was the restatement of Senator Vandenberg's famous comment, "We have to scare the hell out of 'em."

THE NEW ATOMIC AGE
The scientists who had built the atomic bomb were gleeful when they received the news of its success at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In the book, Robert Oppenheimer, Dark Prince, by Jack Rummel, 1992, we find, p.96, "Back in the United States the news of the bombing of Hiroshima was greeted with a mixture of relief, pride, joy, shock and sadness. Otto Frisch remembers the shouts of joy, 'Hiroshima has been destroyed!' 'Many of my friends were rushing to the telephone to book tables at the La Fonda Hotel in Santa Fe in order to celebrate. Oppenheimer walked around "like a prizefighter, clasping his hands together above his head as he came to the podium".'"

Oppenheimer had been a lifelong Communist. "He was heavily influenced by Soviet Communism ": A New Civilization, by Sidney and Beatrice Webb, the founders of Fabian Socialism in England. He became director of research at the newly formed U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, with his mentor, Bernard Baruch, serving as chairman. Oppenheimer continued his many Communist Party Associations; his wife was Kitty Peuning, widow of Joe Dallet, an American Communist who had been killed defending Communism with the notorious Lincoln Brigade in Spain. Because Oppenheimer was under Party discipline, the Party then ordered him to marry Kitty Peuning and make a home for her.

Baruch resigned from the Atomic Energy Commission to attend to his business interests. He was replaced by Lewis Lichtenstein Strauss, of Kuhn, Loeb Co. Strauss was apprised of Oppenheimer's many Communist associations, but he decided to overlook them until he found that Oppenheimer was sabotaging progress on developing the new and much more destructive hydrogen bomb. It seemed apparent that Oppenheimer was delaying the hydrogen bomb until the Soviet Union could get its own version on line. Furious at the betrayal, he asked Oppenheimer to resign as director of the Commission. Oppenheimer refused. Strauss then ordered that he be tried. A hearing was held from April 5 to May 6, 1954. After reviewing the results, the Atomic Energy Commission voted to strip Oppenheimer of his security clearance, ruling that he "possessed substantial defects of character and imprudent dangerous associations with known subversives".

Oppenheimer retired to Princeton, where his mentor, Albert Einstein, presided over the Institute for Advanced Study, a think tank for refugee "geniuses", financed by the Rothschilds through one of their many secret foundations. Oppenheimer was already a trustee of the Institute, were he remained until his death in 1966.

THE REBIRTH OF ISRAEL
Einstein considered the atomic age merely as a stage for the rebirth of Israel. On p.760 of Einstein; His Life And Times we find that Abba Eban, the Israeli Ambassador, came to his home with the Israeli consul, Reuben Dafni. He later wrote, "Professor Einstein told me that he saw the rebirth of Israel as one of the few political acts in his lifetime which had an essential moral quality. He believed that the conscience of the world should, therefore, be involved in Israel's preservation." by Ronald W. Clarke, Avon Books 1971.

On March 1, 1946, Army Air Force Contract No. MX-791 was signed, creating the RAND Corporation as an official think tank, defining Project RAND as "a continuing program of scientific study and research on the broad subject of air warfare with the object of recommending to the Air Force preferred methods of techniques and instrumentalities for this purpose." On May 14, 1948, RAND Corporation funding was taken over by H. Rowan Gaither, head of the Ford Foundation. This was done because the Air Force had sole control of the atomic bomb, RAND Corp. developed the Air Force and atomic bomb program for the Cold War, with the Strategic Air Command, the missile program, and many other elements of the "terror strategy". It became a billion dollar game for these scientists, with John von Neumann, their leading scientist, becoming world famous as the inventor of "game theory", in which the United States and the Soviet Union engaged in a worldwide "game" to see which would be the first to attack the other with nuclear missiles. In the United States, the schools held daily bomb drills, with the children hiding under their desks. No one told them that thousands of schools children in Hiroshima had been incinerated in their classrooms; the desks offered no protection against nuclear weapons. The moral effect on the children was devastating. If they were to be vaporized in the next ten seconds, there seemed little reason to study, marry and have children, or prepare for a steady job. This demoralization through the nuclear weapons program is the undisclosed reason for the decline in public morality.

In 1987, Phyllis LaFarge published The Strangelove Legacy, The Impact Of The Nuclear Threat On Children, chronicling through extended research the moral devastation wreaked on the children by the daily threat of annihilation. She quotes Freeman Dyson, who stated the world has been divided into two worlds, the world of the warriors, and the world of the victims, the children. It was William L. Laurence, sitting in the co-pilot's seat of a B-29 over Nagasaki, and the children waiting to be vaporized below. This situation has not changed.

THE LEGAL ASPECTS OF NUCLEAR WARFARE
Because Japan was occupied by the U.S. Military in 1945, the Japanese Government was never allowed any opportunity to file any legal charges about the use of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Although Japanese leaders were tried and executed for "war crimes" no one was ever charged for the atomic bombings. It was not until 1996 that the World Court delivered an opinion on the use of nuclear weapons, (p.565, Hiroshima's Shadows) "In July 1996, the World court took a stand in its first formal opinion on the legality of nuclear weapons. Two years earlier, the United Nations had asked the Court for an advisory opinion. The General Assembly of the United Nations posed a single, yet profoundly basic, question for consideration. It the threat of use of nuclear weapons on any circumstances permitted under international law? For the first time, the world's pre-eminent judicial authority has considered the question of criminality vis-a-vis the use of a nuclear weapon, and, in doing so, it has come to the conclusion that the use of a nuclear weapon is 'unlawful'. It is also the Court's view that even the threat of the use of a nuclear weapon is illegal. Although there were differences concerning the implications of the right of self-defense provided by Article 51 of the U.N. Charter, ten of the fourteen judges hearing the case found the use of threat to use a nuclear weapon to be illegal on the basis of the existing canon of humanitarian law which governs the conduct of armed conflict. The judges based their opinion on more than a century of treatise and conventions that are collectively known as the 'Hague' and 'Geneva' laws."

Thus the Court ruled that nuclear weapons are illegal under the Hague and Geneva conventions , agreements which were in existence at the time of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings. They were illegal then, and they are illegal now.

GANDHI SPEAKS
Among world leaders who spoke out about the United States' use of atomic weapons in Japan, Mahatma Gandhi echoed the general climate of opinion. P.258, Hiroshima's Shadow: "The atomic bomb has deadened the finest feelings which have sustained mankind for ages. There used to be so-called laws of war which made it tolerable. Now we understand the naked truth. War knows no law except that of might. The atomic bomb brought an empty victory to the Allied armies. It has resulted for the time being in the soul of Japan being destroyed. What has happened to the soul of the destroying nation is yet too early to see. Truth needs to be repeated as long as there are men who do not believe it."

THE COURT OF INTERNATIONAL JUSTICE
Eustace C. Mullins, Ezra Pound World Peace Foundation Japanese-American Friendship Society and the People of Japan,
Plaintiffs,
The United States Government, Defendant.
The plaintiffs bring this action before the World Court of International Justice to resolve the following charges:
1.  Defendant conspired to commit war crimes against the people of Japan during World War II.
2.  Defendant conspired to commit atrocities against the people of Japan during World War II.
3.  Defendant conspired to subsequently evade and cover up these crimes by militarily occupying the nation of Japan, effectively preventing the people of Japan from seeking legal recourse for the actions of defendant.   Defendant continues to militarily occupy Japan today, with 49,999 troops stationed there, on the pretext that the Soviet Union might attack.  This pretext ignores the geopolitical fact that the Soviet Union collapsed in 1989 and does not pose a threat to anyone.
4.  Defendant conspired to commit crimes of genocide against the people of Japan, motivated by racial hatred and religious bigotry.
5.  Defendant violated the Hague agreements and the Geneva Convention, as determined by the World Court in June  1996, by making war against civilians and inflicting millions of casualties by firebombing Japanese cities and the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War II.
6.  After committing these crimes, defendant conspired to cover up these crimes by issuing a number of false statements, denying war crimes, and distortions of fact to evade any punishment for these war crimes.
7.  Defendant also conspired to conceal from the American people the circumstances behind the commission of these war crimes, that a small group of conspirators, refugees from Europe, came to the United States and infiltrated the government of the United States, and in total secrecy launched the project to manufacture an atomic bomb for use against Germany and Japan. At no time during this conspiracy were the people of the United States aware of what was taking place, nor consulted for their approval, in violation of republican'principles and the Constitution of the United States.
8.   Since World War II,  defendant has conducted a worldwide program of atomic terrorism, called atomic diplomacy, to ensure that its program continues unabated, and without punishment.
9. Although Japan had been reduced to ashes by June 1945, defendant insisted that an invasion was necessary, while ignoring peace tenders from Japan since May 1945, and defendant further claimed that the American military would suffer one million war dead while invading Japan, and that it was necessary to drop the atomic bombs on Hiroshima, August 6,  1945, and Nagasaki, August 9, 1945.   In fact, as Admiral William D. Leahy pointed out in his book, I Was There, "the invasion itself was never authorized." General Dwight D. Eisenhower, Supreme Military Commander, Admiral William D. Leahy, Air force General Curtis LeMay, and many other American military leaders, made public statements that it was not necessary to drop the atomic bombs. Political considerations dictated that it be dropped on Japan, in order to test it on a living population, and, if possible, to "tally" a million or more victims with the bombs, for the purpose of postwar intimidation of all other nations.
10.  The atomic bomb was the creation of a small group of European refugees, whose efforts to develop such a bomb in Europe had been indignantly rejected.    Albert Einstein,  the physicist, wrote a personal letter to President Franklin   D.   Roosevelt,   August   2,   1939, recommending that this bomb be built by the United States.   His letter was hand-delivered to Roosevelt by Alexander Sachs, a Wall Street speculator.    The atomic bomb program was directed from behind the scenes by another Wall Street speculator, Bernard Baruch, an agent of the Rothschilds.  Baruch selected Major General Leslie Groves as the director of the project, and J. Robert Oppenheimer as science director of the program.   Baruch continued to issue directives throughout the program, insisting to Major General Groves that the city of Kyoto be the primary target of the atomic bombs.    Military leaders opposed this selection, pointing out that Kyoto was the ancient capital of Japan, and a religious center with more than two hundred ancient temples.   Hiroshima and Nagasaki were finally chosen, although neither of these cities offered a primary military target.    Baruch continued to dictate decisions on the atomic bomb, through the President's National Defense Research Committee, chaired by Baruch's Washington representative, James F. Byrnes.
11.  After the devastation of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, defendant perpetrated a number of outright falsehoods to avoid blame for these massacres of civilians.   The first was that the inhabitants were warned by leaflets dropped over the city that an atomic bomb would be used.   In fact, the leaflets were not dropped until August 10,  after  the  bombs  had  exploded.     The President's Committee had resolved on May 31, 1945 that "we could not give the Japanese any warning."   The second falsehood was that an invasion of Japan would be necessary if the atomic bomb was not used; this would cost a million American lives.  Many leading American military authorities state this is absolutely false. The third falsehood was that both cities were "key military targets".  President Truman boasted in his private papers that "in 1945 I had ordered the atomic bomb dropped on Japan at two places devoted almost exclusively to war production."
In fact, more than 95% of the dead at Hiroshima and Nagasaki were civilians. Only 4.4% of the death toll was made up of military personnel. A fourth falsehood, printed in the New York Times September 5, 1945, was that the victims had suffered no radiation damage. This story was written by William L. Laurence, the paid propagandist for the War Department with exclusive rights to material on the atomic bomb. Laurence quoted Major General Groves that the Japanese "are attempting to create sympathy for themselves".
12.  The Legation of Switzerland in Tokyo forwarded to the defendant a statement from the Japanese government, the complaint that "the city of Hiroshima is a provincial town without any protection or military installations of any kind, but also none of the neighboring regions or towns constitutes a military objective." Observers on the scene recorded that "strictly military damage was insignificant."
13.  The most authoritative official United States unit during World War II was the U.S. Strategic Bombing Survey, which selected targets and analyzed the results of the bombings for the benefit of future missions.   Their report of July 1,  1946 states, "the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs did not defeat Japan, nor by the testimony of the enemy leaders who ended the war did they persuade Japan to accept unconditional surrender. The Emperor, the lord privy seal, the prime minister, the foreign minister, and the navy minister had decided as early as May 1945 that the war should be ended even if it meant acceptance of defeat on allied terms... It is the Survey's opinion that certainly prior to December 1, 1945, and in all probability prior to November 1, 1945, Japan would have surrendered even if the atomic bombs had not been dropped and even if   no    invasion    had    been    planned    or contemplated."
14.   This proves that the destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were war crimes deliberately committed, with foreknowledge that it was not necessary to drop the atomic bombs on these two cities.  As David Lawrence, founder and editor of U.S. News And World Report, wrote in his editorial November 23, 1945, "the truth is we are guilty.    Our conscience as a nation must trouble us.   We must confess our sin.   We have used a horrible weapon to asphyxiate and cremate more than 100,000 men, women and children in a sort of super-lethal gas chamber—­and all this in a war already won or which spokesman for our Air Forces tell us we could have readily won without the atomic bomb."
15.   The world leader and pacifist Mahatma Gandhi  spoke sadly about the tragedy of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  "The atomic bomb has deadened the finest feelings which have sustained mankind for ages.   There used to be so-called laws of war which made it tolerable.   Now we understand the naked truth.   War knows no law except that of might.   The atomic bomb brought an empty victory to the Allied armies.    It has resulted for the time being in the soul of Japan being destroyed.  What has happened to the soul of the destroying nation is yet too early to see."
16.  Defendant is in violation of the Geneva Convention.    Protocol 2, Scope of Application of Humanitarian Law, states:  1. "International humanitarian law is applicable to international armed conflicts.  The international law of peace existing between the states concerned will thus be large superseded by the rules of international humanitarian law....   A state can not, therefore, be allowed to invoke military necessity as a justification for upsetting that balance by departing from those rules."
17.   IV.  Humanitarian Requirements and Military Necessity.   "In war, a belligerent many apply only that amount and kind of force necessary to defeat the enemy.   Acts of war are only permissible if they are directed against military objectives, if they are not likely to cause unnecessary suffering,  and if they are not perfidious."   The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki clearly falls outside the scope of this ruling, being civilian targets, the bombing caused unnecessary suffering, and defendant's attempted justification was openly perfidious.
18.   129. If an act of war is not expressly prohibited by international agreements or customary law, this does not necessarily mean that it is actually permissible.   The so-called Martens Clause, developed by the Livonian professor Friedrich von Martens (1845-1909) delegate of Tsar Nicholas II at the Hague Peace Conferences, which has been included in the Preamble to the 1907 Hague Convention IV and reaffirmed in the 1977 Additional Protocal I as stated below, will always be applicable.  In cases not covered  by the  Protocol  or by  other international agreement, civilians and combatants remain under the protection and authority of the principles of international law derived from established custom, from the principles of humanity, and from the dictates of public conscience.  (Artl., pars. 2 AP  1;  see also Preamble pars. 4 AP II)
19.  Protocol I—Part IV. Section i.    "....the obligation of the Parties to the conflict to 'at all times distinguish between the civilian population and combatants'."  Article 48—Basic rule, "the prohibition of 'indiscriminate attacks'." Article 51—Protection of the civilian population, paragraph  4,   in  particular  "an   attack  by bombardment by any method or means which treats as a single military objective a number of clearly separated and distinct military objectives, located in a city, town, village or other area containing a similar concentration of civilians or civilian objects" (Article 51—Protection of the civilian population paragraph 5 (a) and "an attack which may be expected to cause incidental loss of civilian life, injury to civilians, damage to civilian objects, or a combination thereof, which would be excessive in relation to the concrete and direct military advantage anticipated (article 51—Protection of the civilian population, paragraph 5 [b]).
20.    Protocal   I—Part   IV,   Section    1. "Protection of civilians from arbitrary and oppressive enemy action, outlined in 1899, and later in 1907, was expressed in its most complete form in the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949, which is now supplemented by this Protocol.
WHEREFORE, the plaintiffs respectfully move this Court to hear these charges of conspiracy to commit war crimes and atrocities, conspiracy to cover up their crimes, motivated by racial hatred and religious bigotry, and having intimidated the government of Japan and prevented them from seeking any redress for these crimes, and by defendant's ongoing program of atomic terrorism, perfidious falsehoods, and their continuing conspiracy to cover up crimes of genocide, mass murder and undue suffering among their victims, and that the Court shall hear these charges, decide upon appropriate damages, and punishment for the offenders.
Respectfully submitted

More on JFK's Assassination

Q&A ABOUT THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT KENNEDY

An Attorney’s Evidentiary & Historical Analysis

By Michael B. Schweitzer, Attorney at Law (retired)
November 22, 2012

Introductory note: Today marks the 49th anniversary of the coup d’état that changed the United States of America forever: the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, and the assassination of the presidency itself as an office of national leadership. I post today this essay about the assassination in tribute to both the man and the nation lost.

WHO ASSASSINATED PRESIDENT KENNEDY?

THE SHORT ANSWER: The CIA, at the directorate level, assassinated President John F. Kennedy in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963, to replace him with CIA-friendly Vice President Lyndon Johnson. Former CIA director Allen Dulles issued the Kill Directive to the Agency’s Deputy Director for Counterintelligence (covert military operations) James J. Angleton, a devoted Dulles assistant from before the CIA existed. Angleton engaged another long-time directorate insider to maintain the cover-up by murdering witnesses, Richard M. Helms, the Deputy Director for Plans (assassinations). And for mission command, Angleton selected Major General Edward G. Lansdale, a hardline militarist employed by both the CIA and Air Force. Lansdale despised Kennedy for denying him the ambassadorship to Vietnam, and was a genius at covert military strategy. Lansdale planned and directed the assassination. He turned to Floyd M. Boring, second in command of the United States Secret Service and a close ally of both himself and Dulles, to prepare the murder scene. Boring deployed Secret Service agents to design a loosely finalized motorcade route to a luncheon and presidential address site chosen by Forrest V. Sorrels, special agent in charge of the Dallas office. After the motorcade began, Boring, in Washington D.C., phoned Emory P. Roberts, special agent in charge of the president’s follow-up car, and ordered the motorcade to alter course to enter a freeway it had no need to use, causing it to make a sharp, slow turn into an open field called Dealey Plaza. There, five or six CIA snipers, augmented by Johnson’s personal assassin Malcolm Wallace, fired thirteen shots, four of which struck the president: in the throat, back, rear head and right temple. The final shot, an exploding projectile, blew his brain out the back of his head.

• NOTES ABOUT ME AND THIS ESSAY

MY BACKGROUND: I am a retired civil liberties attorney who devoted a quarter century to achieving justice for victims of abuse of power. To earn a living, my other clients were attorneys, who engaged my services as a specialist in researching law, preparing pre-trial and appellate briefs, and evaluating evidence. I was eleven years old when President Kennedy was assassinated, and took a renewed interest in 2006 when a friend sent me a videotape that challenged basic assumptions about the assassination.

MY METHODOLOGY: From 2006 to date, I have devoted roughly 5,000 hours to researching the assassination of President Kennedy. Researching the assassination is uniquely difficult because most physical evidence was destroyed or altered, and the marketplace is filled with disinformation and little truth. Yet the truth exists in the public domain, scattered like thousands of dust particles and concealed by their transparency. I developed an analytical model that draws the particles together into a “solid object” that can be viewed three-dimensionally to reveal connections, and applied probability analysis to determine the most likely sequence of events.

MY SOURCES: I turned first to primary sources (statements and images from the time, preserved in various media), particularly contemporaneous eyewitness statements, which statistically are highly reliable. I then reviewed thousands of documents, including the uncensored transcripts of the Warren Commission hearings and executive session meetings, volumes of declassified CIA documents, most notably the “Family Jewels” released in 2007, much of the 40-volume Senate “Church Committee” report on the CIA, completed in 1976 after two years of investigation, that unmasked a chilling history of wrongdoing, and a long-withheld 600-page Justice Department report on CIA-Nazi collaboration entitled “Striving for Accountability in the Aftermath of the Holocaust,” finally coerced into release in 2010 by a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit (National Security Archive v. Dept. of Justice). Finally, I read all of what I consider the most scholarly and credible books about the assassination (none of which mention JFK’s sex life) and, importantly, about the assassination’s historical antecedents: the development of the powerful interests that despised President Kennedy and the life histories of the key “players” connected with the assassination. I believe the key to understanding the assassination is to study what happened before and after, not during.

MY ESSAY: This essay is designed to answer basic questions about the assassination of President Kennedy. For sake of brevity, I do not include footnotes, but every factual statement is sourced. I do not presume to have found all truth. But I am sufficiently confident in my research and analysis to present this essay as a statement of what I believe is true. Finally, this essay is a “final draft” for current purposes, but subject to revision. The CIA continues to withhold thousands of documents, notwithstanding the JFK Records Act of 1992 (Public Law No. 102-526) and President Obama’s Executive Order 13526 (issued December 29, 2009) that shortened the disclosure deadline to December 31, 2013. Whether and when these documents are released depends on ongoing litigation. But I consider the CIA’s refusal to release 49-year-old records irrelevant to national security an admission of guilt.

Turning to specific questions . . .

• BASIC QUESTIONS ABOUT THE ASSASSINATION

WHY WAS PRESIDENT KENNEDY ASSASSINATED? Private profit on an enormous scale. Kennedy grew from president to national leader within his first two years in office. Then came the thunderbolt of the Cuban Missile Crisis of October, 1962, which brought the world to the brink of nuclear war between the United States and the Soviet Union. The crisis radicalized him. John F. Kennedy became the first and only anti-Establishment president in the history of the United States.

Throughout 1963, he called for “peace and freedom” at every opportunity. And he ordered radical changes in the two most fundamental areas of governmental policy, both of which threatened the profits of the nation’s true power-center: the military-industrial-banking complex.

1—ENDING THE COLD WAR: First, he began to end to the Cold War, an enduringly profitable enterprise for the military-industrial-banking complex since the end of World War II. His blows actually struck three times. (1) To seek reconciliation with the Soviet Union, he delivered a “peace speech” on June 10, 1963, as a commencement address at American University. In it, he acknowledged the Soviets’ sacrifice and suffering during the War and called not only for nuclear but total disarmament. The address so impressed Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev, he told Undersecretary of State Averell Harriman it was “the greatest speech by any American President since Roosevelt,” and allowed the speech to be rebroadcast without censorship in the Soviet Union. (2) As an immediate result, the next month the United States, Soviet Union and Great Britain negotiated the Limited Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, ratified by the U.S. Senate on September 24, 1963. It was the first treaty ever to address nuclear weapons, and banned nuclear weapon tests in the atmosphere, in outer space and under water. He and Khrushchev also began secret disarmament negotiations behind the backs of both their governments, underway at the time Kennedy was assassinated. (3) Then Kennedy threw the strongest and most devastating punch of all. On October 11, 1963, he issued National Security Action Memorandum (NSAM) 263, which ordered the withdrawal of all American military forces from Vietnam by the end of 1965. Waging a war in Vietnam was the highest and most immediate priority of the military-industrial-banking complex, and JFK decreed no war in Vietnam.

2—ENDING THE FEDERAL RESERVE: Secondly, Kennedy created a radical new monetary system to compete with and eventually eliminate the Federal Reserve banks. The Federal Reserve Act of 1913, signed into law by President Wilson but written by the nation’s most powerful bankers led by J.P. Morgan, established a network of 12 regional, privately-owned “central” or “reserve” banks with the monopoly power to create the nation’s currency and loan it to the government at interest. The Fed’s money monopoly profited the bankers enormously, but wreaked havoc with the nation’s economy and federal budget. And although never litigated, the Act on its face violated Article I, Section 8, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution which grants Congress alone the power of currency creation. On June 4, 1963, Kennedy issued Executive Order 11110 which restored the power of currency-creation to the federal government, specifically the Treasury Department, with instructions “to issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver dollars in the Treasury.” Treasury issued $4.3 billion dollars in silver certificates, initiating the process of quashing the Fed and the profits bankers reaped from it. Only Abraham Lincoln among previous presidents had done the same: on February 25, 1862, by signing the Legal Tender Act, which empowered Treasury to issue what became known as “greenbacks.”

WHAT ROLE DID FORMER CIA DIRECTOR ALLEN DULLES PLAY IN THE ASSASSINATION? He ordered it. Allen Dulles was the CEO of the assassination of President Kennedy. He had devoted his entire life to pursuing the imposition of fascism on free people as a means to protect the power elite. Killing an American president was just another project for a man who, as a researcher who once met him told me, “exuded evil.”

WHAT WAS DULLES’ BACKGROUND? Allen Welsh Dulles, born on April 7, 1893, was a corporate lawyer, a spy for the U.S. during both world wars, and CIA director from February 26, 1953, when President Eisenhower appointed him, until November 29, 1961, when he “resigned” after President Kennedy fired him for gross insubordination, including launching two covert military operations in Vietnam against direct presidential orders. Dulles began his spy career in 1916 during World War I when he joined the Diplomatic Corp and worked as an intelligence operative in Switzerland. He began his law career in 1926 when, the day he received his law license, he joined the powerful Wall Street law firm Sullivan & Cromwell. The firm’s managing partner was his older brother, John Foster Dulles (later Eisenhower’s Secretary of State), and its clients were many of the country’s major banking and industrial corporations, and also the wealthiest financiers of European fascists and later Hitler’s Nazis and his régime. Collusion with Hitler was very profitable for the power elite, and the Dulles Brothers promoted and supported the Nazi takeover of Germany.

Dulles resumed his spy career in 1941, a few months before the U.S. entered World War II, when “Wild” Bill Donovan invited him to run the New York branch of the Office of the Coordinator of Information (COI), President Franklin Roosevelt’s new intelligence agency and precursor to the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), his intelligence apparatus during the war. FDR himself had instructed Donovan to hire Dulles because he knew Dulles’ clients included most of the camouflaged financial entities for Nazi-American interests – and by placing Dulles in the COI’s New York office, located in the Rockefeller Center a floor above the British intelligence wiretapping headquarters, FDR could have an operative monitor his Nazi activities by tapping into British wiretaps. When the COI became the OSS in 1942, Dulles was sent to Switzerland, where he served as station chief in Bern from October 1942 to May 1945. Dulles was moved to Switzerland for the purpose of rounding up and importing to the United States German “specialists” (Nazi scientists and arms experts). Three years before the war ended or its fate was decided, the U.S. was already making arrangements for Nazi experts to enter the government – and universities, aerospace industry, and other spheres of technology.

After the war, Dulles resumed his law practice, representing mainly the interests of the Rockefeller oil and banking dynasty. Then in 1951 he returned full-time to his spy career, as Deputy Director of the CIA. Within two years he became the most dangerous and powerful man in the U.S. government.

HOW DID DULLES GAIN SUCH POWER? President Eisenhower, just a month into his presidency in 1953, appointed Dulles as the first civilian director of the CIA, acting on the advice of Ike’s friend and confidant Senator Prescott Bush of Connecticut. Bush, the father of a president and grandfather of another, was one of Hitler’s American bankers during World War II until the FBI shut down the bank, and all records of his Nazi past vanished. President Harry S Truman had created the CIA as the intelligence-gatherer for the president by signing the National Security Act of 1947 on July 26, 1947. The Act created the CIA in a simple 6-word sentence: “There is a Central Intelligence Agency.” (50 U.S.C. § 403–4(a).) And it gave the CIA precisely one power: to “collect intelligence . . . outside the United States.” (50 U.S.C. § 403–4a(d), later re-codified as § 403–4a(c).)

Dulles, who had co-authored the Act and knew he was violating it, gave the CIA a second power: to conduct covert military operations. The military capability existed thanks to a second law, the Central Intelligence Agency Act of 1949 (50 U.S.C. § 403a, et seq.), which gave the CIA, under certain circumstances, full use of all legitimate armed forces resources off the books. All Dulles had to do to invoke the Act was lie about his purpose, and he did so often, his “black ops” consumed more than 80% of the Agency’s budget. And although the 1949 CIA Act shielded the CIA from virtually any accountability, Dulles guaranteed himself zero accountability by re-structuring the Agency horizontally from vertically, so no compartment would know what any other was doing. Consequently, every project involved assembling a specific team without anyone else in the Agency knowing about it – or the president.

HOW DID DULLES USE THE CIA? As CIA director, Dulles specialized in four things: violently overthrowing governments and assassinating their leaders to profit his clients in the military-industrial-banking complex, infiltrating the whole Executive Branch of the federal government to monitor and control activities, infiltrating and manipulating the national news media to perpetually disinform the public, and perfecting and using mind control by sadistically abusing hundreds of victims.

—SERVING THE MILITARY-INDUSTRIAL-BANKING COMPLEX: Allen Dulles transformed the CIA from the president’s personal intelligence apparatus into the enforcement arm of the military-industrial-banking complex. His CIA enriched the most powerful private interests in America: industrialists, bankers, big oil, agribusiness, the Rockefeller oil and banking cartel, and even himself. Dulles had learned to profit from an intelligence post during World War II, when he ran Bern’s OSS office while acting as intermediary for Hitler’s bankers. His covert operations included two bloody coups d’état that turned democracies into dictatorships: Iran in 1953 (Operation TP-AJAX) and Guatemala in 1954 (Operation PBSUCCES). The Iranian coup was America’s first overthrow of a democratically-elected foreign government.

On August 19, 1953, CIA and British forces savagely toppled the progressive government of Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh after it nationalized the British-owned Anglo-Iranian Oil Company (AIOC) which controlled (more accurately, looted) Iran’s oil, the country’s main natural resource. Mosaddegh fled the country, but some 300 people were wounded or killed in street firefights and Mosaddegh’s followers were imprisoned, tortured and even murdered. Iran’s king (“shah” in Persian), Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, replaced Mosaddegh with a puppet deputy, seized total control himself and turned Iran into a drug-dealing dictatorship. After the coup, AIOC became British Petroleum and partnered with U.S. corporations for equal control of Iranian oil.

Next came Guatemala, where in 1953 the democratically elected government of Jacobo Arbenz initiated a land-reform program that re-distributed the country’s arable land to landless peasants, and offered the landowners compensation at the land value they had declared for tax purposes. The offer enraged Rockefeller-controlled United Fruit Company (later United Brands), which owned 80% of the arable land and was being offered a pittance of its true value. To the rescue came Dulles’ CIA. On June 18, 1954, after a prolonged campaign of psychological warfare using pamphleteering, poster campaigns and radio, CIA-backed Guatemalan forces, led by CIA-selected successor Carlos Armas, invaded Guatemala across its Honduran and Salvadoran borders. Armas’ forces failed, but a U.S. Marine Corps amphibious assault force arrived in Honduras, intimidating Arbenz to surrender. The American government (most vocally Vice President Richard Nixon) justified the coup by branding Arbenz a Soviet puppet, notwithstanding Arbenz’ U.N. voting record was nearly identical to that of the U.S. With Guatemala now a military dictatorship, United Fruit recovered its land. And Allen Dulles – who had been a lawyer for United Fruit and, along with his Secretary-of-State brother John Foster, remained a major shareholder – resumed receiving his stock dividends. In his Guatemala invasion, Allen Dulles killed 150,000 people.

—INFILTRATING THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH: To develop a knowledge base and maneuvering capability, Dulles infiltrated the entire Executive Branch of the federal government. He planted infiltration teams in every significant agency, particularly the Secret Service, every branch of the military, and throughout the White House. He also planted wiretaps wherever useful, including people’s bedrooms to monitor pillow talk.

—INFILTRATING AND MANIPULATING THE NEWS MEDIA: The CIA began to infiltrate and manipulate the U.S. news media in 1948, in what came to be known as “Operation Mockingbird.” The operation was launched by the director of the CIA’s Office of Policy Coordination, Frank Wisner, who financed it by siphoning funds intended for the Marshal Plan and recruited Philip Graham, publisher of The Washington Post, to run the project within the industry. The operation was a huge success, employing by the mid-1950s many major media corporations and individual journalists as spies and disseminators of propaganda for the CIA. Dulles took personal charge of the network in 1953 and handed operational control to Cord Meyer, whom he had invited to join the CIA in 1951. Meyer ran Operation Mockingbird at the time of the JFK assassination and was named by long-time CIA insider E. Howard Hunt, in a 2006 audio-taped “deathbed confession” to his son, as a participant in the assassination. Hunt, one of Dulles’ personal assistants in 1961, died on January 23, 2007. According to media reports, both Wisner and Graham died (respectively on October 29, 1965 and August 3, 1963) by committing suicide.

—PERFECTING AND USING MIND CONTROL: Dulles had a deep fixation with controlling the human mind, and more specifically altering people’s personality and programming people to be activated as killers by implanting deep psychological triggers. In one of his first orders as CIA director, at the urging of insider Richard Helms, he created Project MK-ULTRA on April 13,1953. Speculation about the meaning of the acronym differs, but the most accepted is that “MK” stood for “mind control” (as spelled in German, “kontrolle”) and “ULTRA” was the Agency’s highest secrecy classification, withholding information even from the president. Dulles devoted 6% of the Agency’s budget to MK-ULTRA, which consisted of 149 subprojects contracted out to at least 80 institutions, with additional funding provided by the Rockefeller Foundation. To direct the project, he appointed Dr. Sidney Gottlieb, who held a Ph.D. in chemistry and joined the CIA in 1951. As a poisons expert, he headed the chemical division of the Technical Services Staff (TSS) and became known as the “Black Sorcerer” for supervising the preparation of lethal substances. Generally known to the public is the Project’s use of LSD and other hallucinogens in drug experiments, one of which resulted in a suicide. But the true nature of the program, and Dulles himself, is much darker and, without exaggerating, horrific.

In 1973, then-CIA Director Richard Helms, tipped off about forthcoming Senate investigations, ordered all MK-ULTRA project files destroyed. But being an assassin, not a bureaucrat, he forgot the Agency kept accounting as well as project files. In 1977, under a Freedom of Information Act request, a cache of 16,000 pages of MK-ULTRA financial records was discovered, and they were declassified in July, 2001. Of the significant books written about MK-ULTRA since then, I find most compelling A Nation Betrayed, written later in 2001 by Carol Rutz, because she herself was an MK-ULTRA victim from the age of four. The documents describe the use of electroshock equipment to induce grand mal seizures until no more could be elicited, and nightly brutal sexual abuse of children. And Rutz describes her personal experience with a German scientist using the code-name “Dr. Green.” (Color code-names were commonly assigned to Nazi scientists smuggled by Dulles into secret CIA bases in the United States). “Dr. Green,” Rutz discloses, was the most evil of Hitler’s experimenters, Auschwitz’ “Angel of Death” Josef Mengele. Quoting Ms. Rutz, “The insidious part of his work with me was the love thing. He would love me and torture me. One of Mengele’s favorite phrases was, ‘Pain is pleasure, and pleasure is pain, my dear. I am here to make you very happy! You will love me forever!’ I remember being on the floor with him playing piano in nothing but his boots and a tuxedo coat with tails, as he ordered the men working with him to shock me with cattle prods while he played.”

HOW CLOSE WERE DULLES AND JAMES J. ANGLETON? Angleton was Dulles’ assistant in smuggling Nazis out of Germany and returning Nazi money to Hitler’s financiers after World War II. Dulles recruited Angleton and his fascist father Hugh (a business agent for Dulles during the war) as his key links in his network for smuggling German agents and Nazi money through the Vatican and out of Italy. Angleton laundered Nazi money and built a Vatican escape route for the fugitives of the Third Reich. The truth about the CIA’s use of Nazis remained secret for nearly half a century, covered up by the Dulles and others, including a later CIA director and future U.S. president, George H.W. Bush, who gave Angleton access to his files which Angleton destroyed in a fire before his death. When Dulles hired Angleton as his counterintelligence chief in 1954, he did so on the condition Angleton not subject to polygraph tests 60 of Dulles’ closest friends about their dealings with the Nazis (a fact Angleton revealed shortly before his death to author Joseph Trento).

WAS THE ASSASSINATION PLAN ORIGINAL? No. Allen Dulles, who had entered the diplomatic service in 1916 after graduating Princeton University, worked in Switzerland for American intelligence during World War I. He knew well how the war started. On June 28, 1914, in the Bosnian capital, Sarajevo, the motorcade vehicle of Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand made a wrong turn into a street where waiting gunmen shot him dead. Worked in Sarajevo. Worked in Dallas.

WHAT ROLE DID VICE PRESIDENT LYNDON JOHNSON PLAY IN THE ASSASSINATION? Far less than expected. Johnson had planned to kill Kennedy himself, using his personal assassin Malcolm Wallace, making the decision no later than May, 1960, before the start of the Democratic National Convention when he realized JFK would win the nomination, and perhaps as early as 1958. But higher powers intervened and superceded him and his role in the assassination became limited to contributing his personal assassin, Malcolm Wallace, to the sniper teams, then waiting in the wings to command the cover-up. (Wallace’s fingerprint was found in the sixth floor of the Texas Schoolbook Depository Building, where accused assassin Lee Harvey Oswald supposedly alone shot the president.) Johnson may also have helped secure the financing from his Texas oil backers – H.L. Hunt, John Mecom, John De Menil, Sid W. Richardson, D. Harold Byrd (who owned the Texas Schoolbook Depository Building at the time of the assassination), and especially Clint Murchison (pronounced “Murkison”), all of them enraged at Kennedy for proposing to eliminate a massive tax break for oilmen – but Dulles had stronger ties to oilmen than Johnson, having long protected oil interests as an attorney then as CIA director.

WHAT WAS JOHNSON’S BACKGROUND? Johnson began his political career as a congressman (from 1937 to 1949), then won a disputed election for the U.S. Senate in 1949. Four years later, he became the Democrats’ minority leader, then their majority leader in 1955 after they won control of the Senate in the 1954 general election.

HOW CAN JOHNSON BEST BE DESCRIBED? Lyndon Baines Johnson was a power-obsessed, violently emotional psychopath from Texas with a maniacal drive to become President of the United States. He was a serial killer with a personal assassin, Mac Wallace, who killed eight people on Johnson’s orders, according to a letter to the Justice Department from the attorney for Billy Sol Estes, a close LBJ associate and convicted swindler, dated August 9, 1984. He seized the most powerful position among Democrats in the U.S. Senate – minority then majority leader – through bribery and blackmail. In my opinion, no more dangerous madman ever held the American presidency.

HOW DID LYNDON JOHNSON BECOME VICE PRESIDENT? Blackmail. After Kennedy won the presidential nomination at the 1960 Democratic National Convention in Los Angeles, he unexpectedly offered Johnson the vice presidential nomination. And, to the astonishment of nearly everyone, Johnson accepted it. Journalists and historians long theorized Kennedy offered Johnson the nomination as a courtesy, expecting him to turn it down, and was shocked when he accepted. But Johnson’s acceptance they could not fathom. Having attained so much power in the U.S. Senate – controlling all legislation and committee assignments – he would not conceivably cast it aside. But he did, and for the vice presidency: a powerless office except to vote to break a tie in the Senate. No one had cause to grasp the significance of the constitutional fact it placed him next in line for the presidency. Years later, the truth came out, disclosed by Evelyn Lincoln in a videotaped interview in the early 1990s. Ms. Lincoln was John Kennedy’s secretary both before and during his presidency, and the only observer of a private meeting between him and his brother and campaign manager Robert in a suite at the Biltmore Hotel where, after a lengthy, agonizing discussion, they agreed they had to go with Johnson: Johnson had blackmailed John Kennedy into nominating him for vice president by using evidence of his womanizing provided by Johnson’s close friend, neighbor and FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover.

WHAT DID JOHNSON DO AS VICE PRESIDENT? He did not spend his 1,000 days as vice president idly. He repeatedly undermined Kennedy’s domestic and foreign policy initiatives to save them for his own legacy. He could have used his skill to achieve passage of Kennedy’s stalled legislation, but instead worked behind the scenes to block it.

WHAT DID JOHNSON FIRST DO AS PRESIDENT RELATING TO THE ASSASSINATION? Three things:

—He immediately launched the cover-up by ordering Texas Congressman Henry Gonzalez to steal the clothing of Texas Governor John Connally from Parkland Hospital, where both Kennedy and Connally were taken after the shooting. Connally suffered three wounds of his own as a passenger in the presidential limousine: a shattered rib from a bullet that entered his back and existed through his chest, a shattered right wrist, and a bullet lodged in his thigh that remained there the rest of the day because, as his doctors told a televised press conference, they did not consider it life-threatening. Rep. Gonzales smuggled Connally’s articles of clothing out of the hospital in a sack and brought them back to Washington D.C., where they hung in his closet for at least a week. When they were given back to Connally’s wife Nellie, she laundered them, so when FBI agents finally asked her for them, they were useless to test for gunfire residue.

—As described by Evelyn Lincoln in her early 1990s interview, the day LBJ took over the Oval office, he ordered her to remove all of Kennedy’s personal possessions from the Oval Office, her office and the Cabinet room within half an hour.

—He squelched the real threat to the cover-up – independent investigations – by creating a seven-member, blue-ribbon committee, the Warren Commission, to investigate the assassination. Before Kennedy was even buried, both Senate and House committees announced their intention to investigate the assassination and the Texas attorney general, having criminal jurisdiction, was about to begin his own investigation. The Warren Commission successfully preempted them.

WHAT ROLE DID THE UNITED STATES SECRET SERVICE PLAY IN THE ASSASSINATION? The Secret Service was the “but for” of the assassination. But for the direct participation of Secret Service leaders and agents, there would have been no murder scene and no murder. Leaders and agents of the one federal agency sworn to protect the president (18 U.S.C. § 3056) committed conspiracy, obstruction of justice, treason and murder. They withdrew all protection from the president’s motorcade in Dallas. They ordered his bodyguards and police escort away from his limousine. They placed his limousine first in line instead of sheltered in the middle. They forced his motorcade, against their own rules, to made a slow 120-degree turn into an open field and made him a sitting duck for gunfire from all directions (as it turned out, three). Then they destroyed all records of the motorcade, all evidence of physical damage to the limo and the corpse, and the original autopsy notes. The limousine itself was sent to Ford Motors in Detroit, where chairman Lee Iacocca rebuilt it to destroy all evidence of bullet hits, except for replacing the windshield that contained a through-and-through frontal bullet hole perfectly positioned for a shot to Kennedy’s throat with one that bore a scratch in a different location.

WHO WAS LEE HARVEY OSWALD? This is by far the most difficult question to answer, because his life is shrouded in mystery, and there may actually have been two of him: a Lee Oswald and a Harvey Oswald. For an extraordinarily detailed exploration of the “two-Oswald” phenomenon, I recommend John Armstrong’s 2003 book (which includes a CD-ROM of documents) Harvey & Lee: How the CIA Framed Oswald. For purposes of this essay, I will assume a lone Oswald.

This much is known: Oswald accomplished much in his brief 24 years. He worked as a contact agent for both the FBI and CIA. When the CIA continued operating its anti-Castro training camps after October, 1962, it breached the Kennedy-Khrushchev settlement agreement that ended the Cuban Missile Crisis. Khruschev told Kennedy to put a stop to it. J. Edgar Hoover sent Oswald to Florida to infiltrate the camps and the government shut them down. For its part, the CIA groomed Oswald for four years as the perfect patsy in a presidential assassination, beginning in 1959, when James Angleton’s inner-circle “Special Investigations Group” arranged Oswald’s three-year defection to the Soviet Union. The Agency even added an assassination attempt to his resumé. In a charade played out with Dallas resident, ultra-right-wing spokesman, willing participant and retired Army General Edwin A. Walker on April 10, 1963, Oswald fired a rifle shot at Walker that missed and Walker went home.

WHAT ROLE DID OSWALD PLAY IN THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT KENNEDY? None by direct action. He had been set up and used as a patsy. And brilliant strategist that he was, Ed Lansdale probably planted a second, fall-back patsy elsewhere in Dealey Plaza in case something went terribly awry and the shots could not possibly be made to appear to have been fired from “Oswald’s sniper nest.”

WHAT ROLE DID THE U.S. MILITARY PLAY IN THE ASSASSINATION? None identified. The coup was an act of espionage, native to CIA capability and foreign to military capability. That said, Ed Lansdale was an Air Force Major General, but working as a CIA employee.

WHAT ROLE DID THE MAFIA PLAY IN THE ASSASSINATION? None identified. Lansdale had no need for mobsters. He had more than the resources he needed inside the federal government. No mobster had any capability to use any of those resources. After-the-fact braggadocio by New Orleans Mafia don Carlos Marcello and nothing more.

HOW DID THE ASSASSINATION AFFECT PRESIDENT KENNEDY’S NEW MONETARY POLICY? It ended it. Treasury Secretary C. Douglas Dillon halted the redemption of silver certificates on March 25, 1964. Executive Order 11110 remained on the books, unused, until President Reagan revoked it on September 9, 1987 (along with many other executive orders) by issuing Executive Order 12608.

HOW DID THE ASSASSINATION AFFECT THE COLD WAR? It kept it going unabated. The loss of America’s “peace president” compelled the Soviet Union to counter-move eleven months later by replacing peace-favoring Khrushchev with hardliner Leonid Brezhnev. Dulles no doubt anticipated the domino effect, because he knew better than anyone outside the Kremlin that killing Kennedy would topple Khrushchev as well. The Cold War, about to end in Kennedy’s second term, continued for another profitable quarter of a century. And one must admit Dulles was clever. He overthrew the two most powerful governments on earth by killing just one man.

HOW DID THE ASSASSINATION AFFECT THE WAR IN VIETNAM? It made the war happen. Just four days into his presidency, Johnson issued National Security Action Memorandum (NSAM) 273, reversing Kennedy’s NSAM 263 that ordered all American military personnel withdrawn from Vietnam by the end of 1965. NSAM 273 appears to endorse no change in Vietnam policy, but contains a slipped-in authorization to invade North Vietnam, effectively reversing course entirely and guaranteeing tremendous enrichment for war profiteers. McGeorge Bundy, Dulles’ highest-ranking infiltrator in the Kennedy Administration – the national security adviser – drafted NSAM 273 the day before the assassination, an indicator of two things: (1) the need to reverse JFK’s barrier to war in Vietnam was imperative, and (2) the government was already in transition before the assassination.

WHO TOLD THE TRUTH? Ironically, the only players who told the truth were the two supposed “killers”: Oswald and Jack Ruby, the man seen shooting him in the stomach during his basement-garage transfer from Dallas city to county jail. In city jail corridors, Oswald told reporters, “I didn’t shoot anybody” and “I’m just a patsy.” And in a corridor two years later, Ruby told reporters, “About Adlai Stevenson, if he was vice president, there would never have been an assassination of our beloved President Kennedy.” Asked “Would you explain again?” he replied, “Well, the answer is the man in office now.” My interpretation: Ruby understood Kennedy was assassinated to make Johnson president, to cause changes in policies Stevenson would not have changed.

HOW CERTAIN CAN WE BE THE CIA ASSASSINATED PRESIDENT KENNEDY? Certain beyond a reasonable doubt, in my opinion. My reasoning: Only the CIA had the capability to carry out every aspect the assassination the way it happened. No other entity, inside or outside the government, controlled every resource needed and utilized for what I term “Assassination Weekend”: the 48-hour period commencing early afternoon on Friday, November 22nd when the president was assassinated and ending early afternoon on Sunday, November 24th when his supposed assassin was assassinated. Closure Sunday, and the next business day, Monday, a new president in the Oval Office. The entire sequence of events displays the distinctive, brilliant hallmarks of Dulles/Lansdale strategy, as identifiable as an artist’s brushstrokes on a painting.

• EXAMPLES OF THE CIA’S USE OF ITS CAPABILITIES

—USING THE SECRET SERVICE: Lansdale exploited his close ties to second-in-command of the Secret Service (and probable Dulles infiltrator) Floyd Boring to send a presidential motorcade past a building where a CIA asset, Lee Oswald, groomed for four years to be a perfect patsy for a presidential assassination, had been planted weeks earlier by a CIA handler as a temporary employee.

—USING OPERATION MOCKINGBIRD: I do not believe it was a coincidence that Oswald was shot during a 46-second appearance on live television. If I were Ed Lansdale, I would have staged it, using Cord Meyer and his supreme command of media manipulation to choreograph a mini-television show. Here is my reasoning:

• NECESSITY FOR A “CASE CLOSER”: Legitimizing the Johnson presidency made it essential to end the assassination story at once. If Oswald lived beyond “assassination weekend,” he would have gone to trial and public attention would have stayed focused on the late President Kennedy instead of shifting to the new President Johnson. And worse, the public would have had time to think about what happened and start considering possibilities other than Oswald. The coup required two assassinations: the president and his alleged assassin.

• PRE-EVENT PUBLICITY: Dallas Police Chief Jesse Curry heavily promoted the date and time of Oswald’s basement transfer from city to county jail, effectively maximizing television viewership. Precisely the opposite should have occurred in a maximum security situation where Oswald would pass briefly through an open environment. No one outside the Dallas Police Department should have known about the time of transfer.

• PRE-EVENT BRIEFING: Oswald had been visited in jail by his landlady of a house where he never lived, Ruth Paine. Paine belonged to his small network of CIA handlers. What she told him is known only to the Dallas policemen who listened to them, but his behavior demonstrated he had been told his “escape route.”

• PRE-EVENT COSTUMING: Oswald asked to wear a dark sweater before the transfer. A dark sweater would conceal the lack of blood on black-and-white TV if someone fired a blank at him. Apparently Oswald expected this scenario after he met with Ruth Paine. Someone would pretend to shoot him dead, an ambulance would take him away, and he would be dropped off somewhere free to go anywhere. It was his ticket to freedom, so he readily participated in the game.

• THE PRACTICAL NECESSITY OF FIRING A BLANK: The “someone” who shot Oswald turned out to be Jack Ruby, a Dallas strip-club owner and small-time mobster. Planners likely selected Ruby so the second killing, like the first, could be pinned on a “lone nut” gunman. But the setting limited Ruby to a single shot and had no guarantee it would be fatal. Ruby had to lunge at Oswald through a throng of police, reporters, television cameras and photographers – a multiplicity of variables to hinder him. If Ruby failed to fire with fatal precision, someone else would have had to complete the job, and there would have been a second “magic bullet” to explain: a single shot by Ruby causing two wounds to Oswald.

• THE MADE-FOR-TELEVISION PERFORMANCE: Oswald entered the basement garage. Ruby lunged through the crowd and fired once into his stomach. Oswald groaned twice and dropped straight to the ground, without even a hint of body movement from a bullet impact.

• THE EVIDENCE RUBY DID NOT FIRE A REAL BULLET: (1) Photographer Bob Jackson, who took the Pulitzer Prize-winning photograph of the shooting, said later in a radio interview there was “not a speck of blood anywhere” on the body or at the crime scene. (2) The two “stretcher photos” of Oswald being carried to the ambulance show not only no blood on his sweater, but no damage to a single fiber. (3) A shot by Ruby would have passed straight through Oswald’s stomach, but the trajectory of the bullet that killed him was upward. Dallas police later claimed Oswald was hemorrhaging blood. I acknowledge it may well be Oswald and Ruby both expected Ruby would fire a blank and Ruby was double-crossed and fired a real bullet. But I find that proposition difficult to reconcile with a statement by a photojournalist a few feet away who saw no “speck of blood” at all. More likely, in my opinion, is the CIA double-crossed Oswald in the ambulance and shot him for real.

• THE RUBY “RECOLLECTION BLANK”: In a curious echo of Dulles’ memory control experiments, Ruby, recounting the “incident” (his words) in an interview three weeks before his death on January 3, 1967, said: “I can’t recall what had happened from the time I came to the bottom of the ramp until the police officers had me on the ground.” His mind was blank about everything he said and did during his encounter with Oswald, as if MK-ULTRA programmed to auto-erase.

• PROBABILITY ANALYSIS: I realize my suggestion Ruby fired a blank may seem implausible. But whether he fired a bullet or a blank, I do not question the event was staged. For those who doubt that proposition, please consider: in a plot that required two assassinations, what is the probability the first occurred by conspiracy and the second by chance?

—THE MISSING CABINET: Six of the ten members of Kennedy’s Cabinet were sent out of the country before the assassination, on a flight to Japan that only one of them had to make, Secretary of State Dean Rusk. Who made the flight arrangements is unknown, but the White House staff routinely handles all scheduling, and the scheduling office surely had its own allocation of Dulles infiltrators. Flying with them, for no reason, was Kennedy’s press secretary, Pierre Salinger – an expert on motorcade security. Only two important Cabinet members were in Washington, D.C. when Lyndon Johnson became the President of the United States: Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara and the Attorney General, Kennedy’s brother Robert. Everyone else with authority to run a Department of the federal government was stranded over the Pacific Ocean in a presidential aircraft – with the code book to communicate with the White House missing! They learned about the assassination from an old-fashioned telex – and with no code book, only Johnson could run their Departments. Meanwhile, McNamara, attending a budget meeting at the Pentagon, was never told by anyone there that Kennedy died. He only learned about it 90 minutes later, when he received a personal phone call from Robert Kennedy. Someone cleared a path for Johnson to run almost the entire federal government himself, without any impediment, for the first 24 hours after the assassination.

—THE MISSING JCS LINK TO CIA COVERT OPERATIONS: Also absent from the country during the assassination was the Joint Chief of Staff’s intermediary with CIA covert operations, Air Force Col. L. Fletcher Prouty. (Prouty authored the 1996 book JFK, revised in 2009, and served as Oliver Stone’s advisor for his 1991 film JFK.) Prouty was suddenly sent on a pointless mission to the South Pole! Who gave the order that broke the link between the JCS and CIA black ops during the assassination? Precisely in that position was a superior officer with whom Prouty had intimately worked for a decade, dual-capacity CIA strategist and Air Force Major General Edward Lansdale.

—ELECTRICITY AND TELEPHONE SHUT-DOWN: Immediately after the Dealey Plaza shooting, all electrical power and telephone service in the Texas Schoolbook Depository Building shut down. Whoever accomplished this task is unknown, but it strains credibility to credit a rogue operation. The government could cause it.

—PREDICTION BY PRESIDENT KENNEDY: Journalist Richard Starnes was one of few reporters of unquestionable integrity at the time of the assassination. He had no CIA hooks in him at all. On October 2, 1963 – 51 days before the assassination – the Washington Daily News published an article on page 3 of its newspaper, written by Starnes in Saigon, entitled, “’SPOOKS’ MAKE LIFE MISERABLE FOR AMBASSADOR LODGE: ‘Arrogant’ CIA Disobeys Orders in Viet Nam.”

The Starnes article is astonishing for two reasons. First, it criticized the CIA – a radical act at the height of Operation Mockingbird control of the news media. The story began by expressing the outrage of the State Department at CIA defiance, stating: “The story of the Central Intelligence Agency’s role in South Viet Nam is a dismal chronicle or bureaucratic arrogance, obstinate disregard of orders, and unrestrained thirst for power. Twice the CIA flatly refused to carry out instructions from Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge, according to a high United States source here.”

Secondly, it expressed the outrage of someone else: “Other American agencies here are incredibly bitter about the CIA. ‘If the United States ever experiences a “Seven Days in May” it will come from the CIA, and not from the Pentagon,” one U.S. official commented caustically. (‘Seven Days in May’ is a fictional account of an attempted military coup to take over the U.S. Government.)”

An anonymous source had predicted the CIA would lead any coup attempt against the U.S. government. The source has never, to my knowledge, been identified. But the reference to “Seven Days In May” is a tip-off it was President Kennedy. John Kennedy so strongly supported the production of a motion picture version of the novel in 1962, he personally helped the producers. He flew to the family estate in Hyannisport, Massachusetts for a weekend vacation so director John Frankenheimer could film a protest-turned-riot sequence on the sidewalk in front of the White House, which could only be allowed if the president were not there. President Kennedy wanted the public to understand the dangerous environment in which his Administration operated, even though he realized the story pointed the finger in the wrong direction, at the military establishment instead of the CIA.

WHY DOES THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT KENNEDY STILL MATTER? The assassination of President Kennedy altered the American form of government into the foreseeable future. It had the effect of a constitutional amendment. It eliminated the presidency as an office of national leadership.

WHO WAS THE POWER BEHIND THE ASSASSINATION?

Thus far, this essay has addressed what may be characterized as the “second level” question: Who assassinated President Kennedy? That is a planning and operational question.

More difficult to answer is the “first level” question: Who above the operational level initiated the assassination? Who told Dulles “Kill the President”? This question is more difficult to answer because no tangible evidence exists. No paper trail, just spoken words. But still the answer can be ascertained, at least to a high degree of probability, by using a different methodology: deduction.

First I will address the prevailing theories, then present my list of candidates, then state my conclusion identifying the culprit.

• THE PREVAILING THEORIES

Different authors and researchers have deduced different masterminds. I perceive three main schools of thought, which I will present first. Then I will state my own conclusion.

1—LYNDON JOHNSON: Many people, including Jacqueline and Robert Kennedy, believed the mastermind was Lyndon Johnson, who coveted the presidency and blackmailed JFK into making him next in line. Author Phillip F. Nelson espouses this belief in his well-researched but regrettably prurience-tainted book, LBJ: The Mastermind of the JFK Assassination (2011 revised edition).

• FOOTNOTE: OTHER LBJ PROJECTS: Covering up the JFK assassination was only one of Lyndon Johnson’s dirty projects as president. He was also the only president who forced a Supreme Court Justice to resign: Kennedy nominee Arthur Goldberg. Goldberg had worked in U.S. intelligence during WWII and was the operative for President Roosevelt who tapped into British wiretaps in Rockefeller Center to monitor Allen Dulles’ Nazi activities. The cover story for Justice Goldberg’s resignation from the Court was that Johnson urged him to replace the late Adlai Stevenson as Ambassador to the United Nations. Disclosed by an apparent leak from the Church Committee in 1975 or 1976, and reported for one day by a few alternative media outlets then never repeated, is the way Stevenson died. During a brief stop in London on July 14, 1965, he suddenly fell to the ground dead on the steps of the U.S. Embassy, shot in the neck by a CIA ice dart. LBJ had ordered the first combat troops into Vietnam just three months earlier, on March 8, 1965 – an escalation Stevenson (like JFK) opposed. So down at the same time went a key Johnson and a key Dulles irritant.

2—THE CIA: Others believe the CIA itself initiated the assassination at a very high level because Kennedy was determined to reform it, stripping it of all but its intelligence-gathering functions. As long-time researcher Mark Lane posits in his Last Word: My Indictment of the CIA in the Murder of JFK (2011), “in an act that the CIA likely considered self-defense, the agency . . . assassinated President Kennedy before he could take action against it.” Lane specifically fingers Richard Helms as the mastermind, and also explains how the CIA made Oswald a “patsy”: Oswald’s friend “CIA operative George De Mohrenschildt . . . found a job for Oswald at the book depository located directly on the route selected for the presidential motorcade.”

3—HIGHER POWERS THAN THE CIA OR LBJ: Author/theologian James W. Douglass, in his highly regarded JFK and the Unspeakable (2008), blames neither the CIA nor LBJ, but powers higher than the government, yet he characterizes them only as “the Unspeakable.” Douglass acknowledges possible CIA involvement, but proposes at most “CIA Deputy Director for Plans Richard Helms and Counter-intelligence head James Angleton knew [about the assassination] beforehand.”

• MY LIST OF CANDIDATES

I concur with Mr. Douglas that “higher powers” ordered the assassination. But I do not accept the vague description of them as “unspeakable.” The “powers” have names. They had purposes. They can be identified.

RULING OUT THE UNLIKELY

1—LYNDON JOHNSON: I consider LBJ an unlikely candidate for “mastermind.” He was a terrific, cut-throat political operator. He logically would have known about the assassination in advance, because planning a cover-up is part of planning the event to be concealed. And the positively identified fingerprint of his personal assassin, Mac Wallace, in the sixth floor of the Texas Schoolbook Depository Building demonstrates he at least contributed a sniper to the killing. But I do not find credible his having the capability to utilize all the resources the plot required and only the CIA possessed. Nor do I find credible the CIA deploying all of those resources to assassinate the President of the United States just to serve Lyndon Johnson’s personal ambitions. I believe the “Johnson Mastermind” theory considerably exaggerates his role in the assassination, and by doing so, however inadvertently, perpetuates the cover-up by diverting attention away from the CIA.

2—THE CIA ACTING ALONE: I also dismiss the proposition the conspiracy originated within the CIA. The CIA’s mission was to serve clients in the private sector: the global geopolitical profit interests of the most towering industrial and financial enterprises in the nation. Self-indulgence like killing an American president out of personal spite would have contradicted the very reason for its existence. Allen Dulles had molded the CIA to enforce the will of those private enterprises, who were his clients – and remained so after he was sacked. Their power exceeded Dulles’ (just as Dulles’ exceeded the president’s), and Kennedy had initiated policies that imminently threatened their livelihoods. I believe Dulles issued the kill order to the directorate level of the CIA. But he was not the mastermind, either. His life story is one of serving private sector clients for a living, both as a lawyer and blood-splattered spy.

RULING IN THE LIKELY

Among the higher powers, I perceive three distinct candidates – each a highest-tier power in politics and finance with a history of pro-Nazi activism and a truly intimate relationship with Allen Dulles:

1—AVERELL HARRIMAN: Harriman was lawyer for the power elite, political power broker, one-time governor of New York, oft-times presidential advisor with his own agenda, and one of his businesses was Brown Bros., Harriman & Co., one of the country’s leading private banking institutions. He was fully capable of masterminding the ultimate power grab. He wormed his way into the Kennedy Administration as undersecretary of state for political affairs. Harriman strongly favored war in Vietnam. Without presidential approval and behind Kennedy’s back while he was vacationing at Hyannisport, Harriman cabled Kennedy’s pro-war ambassador to Vietnam, Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., and ordered the November 2, 1963 assassination of South Vietnam’s President Ngo Dinh Diem. Harriman, a power behind the throne, was a presidential assassin.

2—JOHN J. McCLOY: McCloy controlled so many private and public institutions, journalist Richard Rovere dubbed him “Chairman of the American Establishment.” McCloy had close relations with Nazis and Hitler himself. During World War II, he served as Assistant Secretary of the War Department and kept sea lanes open for Standard Oil tankers supplying fuel for the Nazi war machine, prevented the bombing of Nazi concentration camps, and refused Jewish refugees entry to the U.S. After the war, he blocked the executions of Nazi war criminals and hid a number of major war criminals, including the “butcher of Lyons” Klaus Barbie, at the 370th Counter Intelligence Corps at Obergamergau. One of their handlers was Army Private Henry Kissinger, who later entered Harvard University as a McCloy protégé. McCloy returned to Germany in 1949 as American High Commissioner, where he commuted the death sentences of a number of Nazi war criminals and gave others early releases. One was Hitler’s financial genius, Dr. Hjalmar Schacht, who subsequently went on the payroll of Aristotle Onassis (ironically, the future husband of JFK’s widow Jacqueline). In 1952, McCloy left Germany to resume work in the private sector and became the president of Chase Manhattan Bank, director of a dozen blue chip corporations, and legal counsel to the “Seven Sisters” of American oil. In an irony unto itself, he acquired as a client the Nobel oil firm, whose interests in Czarist Russia had been managed by the father of Lee and Marina Oswald’s “best friend” in Dallas, George de Mohrenschildt, one of Oswald’s CIA handlers.

3—DAVID S. ROCKEFELLER, SR. (WITH A CAVEAT): Rockefeller is (at age 97) the godfather of the only trillionaire family in America. The family’s net worth, never disclosed and concealed behind a web of foundations, is about $18 trillion dollars. The only wealthier family on earth are the Rothschilds (the “red shield” in German), worth nearly $200 trillion. (Although condemned by Anti-Semites as a “Zionist dynasty,” in truth the Rothschilds converted to Catholicism generations ago.) The Rockefellers at the time of the Kennedy assassination, adjusted for inflation, were worth about $9 trillion, derived from a massive global oil, industrial, chemical, agribusiness and banking empire. The Rockefellers funded Hitler’s eugenics program and partnered with German industrialists throughout World War II, as arranged by their lawyers Allen Dulles and his brother John Foster Dulles. From the start of the 1940s until Allen Dulles’ death on January 29, 1969, David Rockefeller and Allen Dulles were best friends.

WEEDING DOWN THE LIST

I rule out Harriman because he gained no enrichment from the assassination. I rule out McCloy because he was a Rockefeller subordinate, running Rockefeller’s Chase-Manhattan bank.

• MY CHOICE OF CULPRIT: DAVID S. ROCKEFELLER, SR. (but acting on another’s advice)

David Rockefeller is the man who profited the most from the assassination. Kennedy’s death, in the long run, was worth trillions of dollars to him. And for a quarter of a century, he was Allen Dulles’ primary client, served by Dulles both as an attorney and as CIA director. They were so close that Dulles had Rockefeller regularly briefed on CIA activities. And Rockefeller despised Kennedy more than anyone else despised him.

KENNEDY’S DOUBLE PUNCH AT ROCKEFELLER

In 1963, Kennedy slammed Rockefeller in the pocket-book twice, by slicing deeply into this two main sources of income.

1—BANKING: Kennedy’s restoration of the power of currency-creation to the Treasury Department by issuing Executive Order 11110 on June 4, 1963 hit Rockefeller harder than any other American. Rockefeller’s Chase-Manhattan Bank owned by far the largest share of stock of any U.S. institution in the Federal Reserve banks.

2—OIL: Kennedy’s NSAM 263 of October 11, 1963, ordering the complete American military personnel from Vietnam by the end of 1965, deprived Rockefeller of the greatest prize of a war, a secret known only to him and his geologists. In 1958, one of the world’s greatest oil fields was discovered off the south coast of Vietnam, and was coveted by Rockefeller’s Shell Oil Company.

Kennedy’s decision to go to Dallas was not made until November 4, 1963, giving Rockefeller ample time to tell Dulles to issue a kill directive.

A LITTLE PERSONAL DIRT

Having been the man who ordered the issuance of the kill directive, Rockefeller deserves at least a measure of public humiliation.

Many years ago, an elderly friend of mine met an intoxicated “Bo Bo” Rockefeller (wife of Winthrop, one of David’s brothers and the first Republican governor of Arkansas) aboard the cruise ship Rafaello on a trip to Italy. Bo Bo told my friend—and this is a direct quote: “The most dangerous family in America are the Rockefellers.” Those words are from a member of the Rockefeller family.

And Bo Bo told my friend something else, a closely guarded family secret. David’s brother Winthrop was gay. To bear him a child, Winthrop ordered Bo Bo to have sex with his chauffeur. She did, and he got his child.

Now, turning to the “caveat” – the “other” person, who advised, indeed urged, David Rockefeller to have Kennedy killed.

THE “HEINZ” FACTOR

—HISTORICAL BACKGROUND

Enter Henry “Heinz” Kissinger, the world’s most brilliant geopolitical strategist. In an astonishing career, he rose from a 15-year-old Jewish refuge who fled to the United States from Nazi Germany in 1938, to an interpreter and intelligence officer for the U.S. Army Counter-Intelligence Corps (CIC) in Europe (from 1943 to 1949), to a CIC commandant of portions of occupied Germany which he ruled with an iron fist starting in June of 1945, to an inner-circle member of the David Rockefeller-controlled exclusive club of Wall Street power elite, the Council of Foreign Relations (CFR), in 1956 (whose members included banker John McCloy and CIA Director Allen Dulles, both appointed to the Warren Commission), to President Nixon’s national security advisor in 1969 and Secretary of State in 1973.

Kissinger also took on another assignment in the late 1940s, according to author/attorney John Loftus, a former prosecutor with the Justice Department’s Nazi-hunting unit: Kissinger screened the Nazi scientists entering the United States to serve the government under President Truman’s Operation Paperclip. When he detected war criminals, barred from entry by Truman’s order, instead of having them prosecuted, he routed them to the CIA. And when Dulles became CIA director in 1953, the number of Nazis joining the CIA doubled.

Kissinger and Dulles first met in 1947, during a Dulles visit to Germany, where Kissinger served as his German interpreter. Kissinger returned to the United States in 1949 and earned three degrees from Harvard University: B.A. summa cum laude in political science in 1950, M.A. in 1952, and Ph.D. in 1954. “Dr. Kissinger” and Rockefeller first met in 1954, when Kissinger served as an advisor to a CFR “study group” evaluating nuclear weapons. The relationship developed to the point that Kissinger was invited to sit on the board of trustees of the Rockefeller Bros. Fund.

By the mid-1950s, the trio of Rockefeller, Dulles and Kissinger were a power-team unto themselves, with Dulles and Kissinger both serving Rockefeller family interests, Dulles as CIA director and Kissinger as master advisor in geopolitical manipulation for profit.

—FROM THEORY TO PRACTICE

From the moment Kissinger acquired a position of power inside the government in 1969 as Nixon’s national security director, he relentlessly accumulated control over American foreign policy, achieving total control within a year, and his control continued for decades (with lapses under Presidents Carter and Clinton).

Kissinger promptly utilized every tool at his disposal to achieve his foreign policy objectives, which generally coincided with Rockefeller interests. And his tools were the same at Hitler’s: genocide, mass murder, and assassination. He adopted genocide as a tool for policy implementation in Bangladesh for Pakistan in 1971, East Timor for Indonesia in 1975, and against the Kurds in northern Iraq in for Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in 1975. In cities and towns in Vietnam and throughout Southeast Asia, he slaughtered entire civilian populations in waves of massive bombings between 1969 and 1973. He overthrew three democratic governments, assassinated their leaders and replaced them with mass-murdering dictators: in Cambodia in 1975 (Prince Norodom Sihanouk killed and replaced with Pol Pot), Chile in 1973 (President Salvador Allende killed and replaced with Augusto Pinochet), and East Timor (invaded by Indonesia in 1975 but former leader Nicolau dos Reis Lobato, who fled, belatedly killed in 1978). The year Kissinger killed Allende, he ended President Kennedy’s Alliance for Progress, a joint U.S.-Latin American effort to improve economic conditions on the continent without regard to a country’s form of government. Ultimately, he became the last of the four great mass murderers of the 20th Century, responsible for millions of deaths. In order of magnitude: Mao (58 million), Stalin (49 million), Hitler (42 million), and Kissinger (roughly 16 million, but no official body count yet).

—MASTERMIND OF THE JFK ASSASSINATION

By October 11, 1963, when Kennedy issued the order separating Rockefeller from his Vietnamese oil, Kissinger realized Rockefeller needed a regime change. Kennedy placed Rockefeller’s wealth-building on hold. One can almost hear Kissinger’s voice, in its grave Germanic accent, speaking the words to Rockefeller, “Kennedy has to go.” Needing no further prompting, Rockefeller called Dulles and Dulles issued the kill directive.

If this scenario is correct – and none seem more realistic to me given the historical antecedents – then David Rockefeller, Sr. set the machinery of the assassination in motion. But the power behind the throne – the true mastermind of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy – was Kissinger. In short: Henry Kissinger, the world’s only serial presidential assassin, was the man responsible for the assassination of President Kennedy.

SUMMARY OF ESSAY: MY EVIDENTIARY AND HISTORICAL ANALYSIS OF THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY

The CIA assassinated President John F. Kennedy at the directorate level, pursuant to a kill directive issued by former director Allen Dulles. Dulles issued the directive as a service to a client and endorsed it personally. The client was his best friend and the “emperor” of the U.S. power elite, David S. Rockefeller, Sr. But Rockefeller’s decision was made by his advisor, Professor of geopolitics Henry Kissinger. Henry Kissinger is the man responsible for the assassination of President Kennedy.

EPILOGUE

The irony is that President Kennedy alone survives the assassination. His voice of inspiration still speaks to us and lights a path, through our current darkness, to a future that should be our present.
