Did the CIA Boss Bring In the Head of the CIA’s Castro Assassination Team to Kill JFK?

Well-known journalist David Talbot – founder and lead editor for Salon – said in an interview today that the CIA may well have played a role in the assassination of John F. Kennedy:

[After JFK fired CIA head Allen Dulles,]  Dulles … continued to sort of set up an anti-Kennedy government in exile in his home in Georgetown. Many of the people he was meeting with, several of the people, including Howard Hunt and others, later became figures of suspicion during the House Select Committee on Assassination hearings in Washington in the 1970s. You know, most Americans don’t know that that was the last official statement, the last official report, on the Kennedy assassination, not the Warren Report back in 1964. But the Congress reopened the investigation into John Kennedy’s assassination, and they did determine he was killed as the result of a conspiracy.

So a number of the people who came up during this investigation by Congress were figures of interest who were meeting with Allen Dulles. They had no, you know, obvious reason to be meeting with a “retired” CIA official. The weekend of Kennedy’s assassination, Allen Dulles is not at home watching television like the rest of America. He’s at a remote CIA facility, two years after being pushed out of the agency by Kennedy, called The Farm, in northern Virginia, that he used when he was director of the CIA as a kind of an alternate command post. Well, he’s there while Kennedy is killed, after Kennedy is killed, when Jack Ruby then kills Lee Harvey Oswald. That whole fateful weekend, he’s hunkered down in a CIA command post. So, there are many odd circumstances like this.

I also found out from interviewing the children of another former CIA official that one of the key figures of interest in the Kennedy assassination, a guy named William Harvey, who was head of the CIA-Mafia plot against Castro and hated the Kennedys, thought that they were weak and so on, he was seen leaving his Rome station and flying to Dallas, by his own deputy, on an airplane early in November 1963. This is a remarkable sighting, because to place someone like William Harvey, the head of the CIA’s assassination unit, put there by Allen Dulles, in Dallas in November of ’63 before the assassination is a very important fact. The CIA, by the way, refuses, even at this late date, to release the travel vouchers for people like William Harvey. Under the JFK Records Act, that was passed back in the 1990s, they are compelled by federal law to release all documents related to the Kennedy assassination, but they’re still withholding over 1,100 of these documents, including—and I used the Freedom of Information Act to try and get the travel vouchers for William Harvey. They’re still holding onto them.

High-level CIA officer Howard Hunt gave a videotaped, deathbed confession to his son  confirming many of these facts:

    Thanks, GW. The total evidence we already have demands a full independent accounting for the facts. I documented some I know of: http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2013/11/jfk-assassinated-us-1-war-criminals-4-powerful-learning-resources.html

    • Here you go Mr. Herman, here is something I dug up many years ago.

      September 25, 2004 How Bush’s grandfather helped Hitler’s rise to power

      Rumours of a link between the US first family and the Nazi war machine have circulated for decades. Now, the Guardian can reveal how repercussions of events that culminated in action under the Trading with the Enemy Act are still being felt by today’s president. The Guardian has obtained confirmation from newly discovered files in the US National Archives that a firm of which Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects of Nazism.

    In the 1960 campaign, Lyndon B. Johnson was elected Vice President as John F. Kennedy’s running mate. On November 22, 1963, when Kennedy was assassinated, Johnson was sworn in as the 36th United States President, with a vision to build “A Great Society” for the American people.

    Allen Dulles, James Jesus Angleton, Cord Meyer, William K. Harvey, David Morales, David Atlee Phillips, G.H.W. Bush, George de Mohrenshildt, E. Howard Hunt, and PATSY, Lee Harvey Oswald – ALL were on the CIA payroll, and ALL were involved in one way or another, in the JFK Assassination. Oh, and by the way, both David Atlee Phillips and David Morales were filmed and photographed in the Ambassador Hotel, on the night that Robert F. Kennedy was shot. Sirhan Sirhan was a complete PATSY. Not a single bullet from Sirhan Sirhan’s handgun hit RFK. Not one. THAT is a documented FACT. So, WHY does Sirhan Sirhan remain in prison?
