While yesterday’s pre-planned release ofJFK fileswas significantly neutered at the request of the CIA and FBI,enraging Lou Dobbs among others, the 2800+ files which werereleased have been poured over extensively, revealing evidence of a second shooter, a massive CIA infiltration of the MSM, a tipoff phone call received 25 minutes before the assassination, and Soviet intelligence indicating the assassination was a coup involving LBJ among other things.
J. Edgar Hoover’s comments suggest Oswald wasn’t a shooter:
The evening of the assassination, J. Edgar Hoover told Lyndon Johnson’s aide, Walter Jenkins, “The thing I am concerned about, and so is Mr. Katsenbach, is having something issuedso we can convince the public that Oswald is the real assassin.”
“According to our source, officials of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union believed there was some well-organized conspiracy on the part of the “ultraright” in the United States to effect a “coup.”They seemed convinced that the assassination was not the deed of one man, but that it arose out of a carefully planned campaign in which several people played a part.”
The KGB allegedly had evidence LBJ was behind the coup:
According to a CIA source, “it was indicated that “now” the KGB was in possession of data purporting to indicate President Johnson was responsible for the assassination of the late President John F. Kennedy.
A UK Journalist was tipped off 25 minutes before the assassination
A memo written to the director of the FBI from the deputy director of the CIA notes that a UK journalist employed by Cambridge News received an anonymous phone call 25 minutes before the JFK assassination telling him to call the US Embassy for “some big news.”
The CIA infiltrated the media and religious institutions
In a February, 1976 note, the CIA’s Office of the Director issued a memo which states “Genuine concern has recently been expressed about CIA relations with newsmen and churchmen.” As a result, the agency instituted a newpolicy not to enter into paid arrangements with these institutions.
We then discussed the matter somewhat at more length and I gave ball park figures of various categories of journalists with whom we had contact.I said that the total free lance stringers with whom we had varying degrees of association was in the area of 40.
The secret service interviewed hundreds of people deemed “threats to President Kennedy’s safety” from March – December, 1963. One of the interviewees was an anti-Castro Cuban national named Homer S. Echevarria, who – the day before the assassination– “allegedly approached informant to provide machine guns for Cuban rev.,” (revolution) and allegedly told the informant “We now have plenty of money — our new backers are Jews — as soon as ‘we’ or (they) take care of Kennedy…” The Secret Service note states Echevarria “expressed favorable attitude toward LBJ.”
Before reaching any conclusions, note that this is the only claim of Jewish involvement in the assassination aside from Jack Ruby (Jacob Rubenstein), and could be misdirection or scapegoating by Echevarria.
That said,The Sunreports that Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby met each other on a trip to Cuba “to cut sugar cane” weeks before the assassination.
They were part of a group of 30 or 40 “hippie looking” people who were on their way to Cuba to cut sugar cane, airport manager George Faraldo told investigators.
