(1) Bob Dylan on the assassination of JFK

by Peter Myers, April 8, 2020

Bob Dylan recently released a song on the assassination of JFK, titled "Murder Most Foul".

He rejects the official "lone gunman" story. Instead, Dylan depicts the assassination as a conspiracy, with LBJ one of the leaders. "We've already got someone here to take your place"

[Verse 1]

It was a dark day in Dallas, November '63
A day that will live on in infamy
President Kennedy was a-ridin' high
Good day to be livin' and a good day to die
Being led to the slaughter like a sacrificial lamb
He said, "Wait a minute, boys, you know who I am?"
"Of course we do, we know who you are!"
Then they blew off his head while he was still in the car
Shot down like a dog in broad daylight
Was a matter of timing and the timing was right
You got unpaid debts, we've come to collect
We're gonna kill you with hatred, without any respect
We'll mock you and shock you and we'll put it in your face
We've already got someone here to take your place
The day they blew out the brains of the king
Thousands were watching, no one saw a thing
It happened so quickly, so quick, by surprise
Right there in front of everyone's eyes
Greatest magic trick ever under the sun
Perfectly executed, skillfully done
Wolfman, oh Wolfman, oh Wolfman, howl
Rub-a-dub-dub, it's a murder most foul

(2) CIA agent Robert D. Morrow confesses his role, and the CIA's, in the assassination of JFK

CIA agent Robert D. Morrow confessed his role, and the CIA's, in the assassination of JFK, in his book First Hand Knowledge: How I Participated in the CIA-Mafia Murder of President Kennedy, published in 1992.

The assassination grew out of the CIA attempts to overthrow Castro. They thought that "the only good commie is a dead one".

Kennedy stopped their plan for invasion, at the Bay of Pigs, and also threatened to smash the CIA into a thousand pieces.

The CIA already had an alliance with the Mafia and anti-Castro vigilante groups in Miama. When Kennedy blocked them, they deemed him soft on Communism, and a menace to the USA, and activated their network against him.

Morrow reveals that his CIA case-officer, Tracy Barnes, asked him to purchase and modify fifles for the assassination:

"My involvement with the plans to assassinate John F. Kennedy commenced at the end of June, 1963. On July 1, I was contacted by Tracy Barnes. He requested that I purchase four Mannlicher 7.35 mm surplus rifles. According to Barnes, the rifles were available in the Baltimore area from Sunny's Supply stores. Upon my agreement to make the purchase, Barnes requested that I alter the forepiece of each rifle so that the rifles could be dismantled, hidden and reassembled quickly. I thought this last request odd until I was informed that the rifles were to be used for a clandestine operation. One day later I received a second phone call. It was del Valle calling from, I assumed, Miami. He asked me to supply him with four transceivers which were not detectable by any communications equipment then available on the market." (pp. 204-5).

One of the surprises in Morrow's account is that the perpetrators intended that the assassination of JFK would be blamed on Castro. This would then justify an American invasion of Cuba, in retaliation (as in Operation Northwoods).

(3) E Howard Hunt deathbed confession of his role in assassination on JFK - Rolling Stone

Wikipedia mentions this confession:

Everette Howard Hunt, Jr. (October 9, 1918 ­ January 23, 2007), better known as E. Howard Hunt, was an American intelligence officer ... From 1949 to 1970, Hunt served as an officer in the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). [...]

After the Bay of Pigs fiasco, Hunt was reassigned as Executive Assistant to Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) Allen W. Dulles. [...]

Hunt was undeniably bitter about what he perceived as President John F. Kennedy's lack of commitment in overthrowing the communist government of Cuba. [...]

"Deathbed confession" of involvement in Kennedy assassination

After Hunt's death, Saint John Hunt and David Hunt stated that their father had recorded several claims about himself and others being involved in a conspiracy to assassinate President John F. Kennedy. Notes and audio recordings were made. In the April 5, 2007, issue of Rolling Stone, Saint John Hunt detailed a number of individuals purported to be implicated by his father, including Lyndon B. Johnson, Cord Meyer, David Phillips, Frank Sturgis, David Morales, Antonio Veciana, William Harvey, and an assassin he termed "French gunman grassy knoll" who many presume was Lucien Sarti.

The mainstream media ignored Hunt's confession - did not publish it. But Rolling Stone magazine published an article about it:

The Last Confessions of E. Howard Hunt

He was the ultimate keeper of secrets, lurking in the shadows of American history. He toppled banana republics, planned the Bay of Pigs invasion and led the Watergate break-in. Now he would reveal what he'd always kept hidden: who killed JFK


Posted Apr 05, 2007 1:15 PM

[...] E. Howard scribbled the initials "LBJ," standing for Kennedy's ambitious vice president, Lyndon Johnson. Under "LBJ," connected by a line, he wrote the name Cord Meyer. Meyer was a CIA agent whose wife had an affair with JFK; later she was murdered, a case that's never been solved. Next his father connected to Meyer's name the name Bill Harvey, another CIA agent; also connected to Meyer's name was the name David Morales, yet another CIA man and a well-known, particularly vicious black-op specialist. And then his father connected to Morales' name, with a line, the framed words "French Gunman Grassy Knoll."

So there it was, according to E. Howard Hunt. LBJ had Kennedy killed. It had long been speculated upon. But now E. Howard was saying that's the way it was. And that Lee Harvey Oswald wasn't the only shooter in Dallas. There was also, on the grassy knoll, a French gunman, presumably the Corsican Mafia assassin Lucien Sarti, who has figured prominently in other assassination theories.

(4) Operation Northwoods (1962)

Operation Northwoods was a Deep State plot against Cuba and JFK. Information on Operation Northwoods was revealed by James Bamford in his book Body of Secrets.

CIA papers on Operation Northwoods were released about 1995, as part of an investigation into the assassination of JFK.

Body of Secrets

by James Bamford

DOUBLEDAY. New York. 2001

{p. 82} According to secret and long-hidden documents obtained for Body of Secrets, the Joint Ghiefs of Staff drew up and approved plans for what may be.the most corrupt plan ever created by the U.S. government. In the name of anticommunism, they proposed launching a secret and bloody war of terrorism against their own country in order to trick the American public into supporting an ill-conceived war they intended to launch against Cuba.

Codenamed Operation Northwoods, the plan, which had the written approval of the Chairman and every member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, called for innocent people to be shot on American streets; for boats carrying refugees fleeing Cuba to be sunk on the high seas; for a wave of violent terrorism to be launched in Washington, D.C., Miami, and elsewhere. People would be framed for bombings they did not commit; planes would be hijacked. Using phony evidence, all of it would be blamed on Castro, thus giving Lemnitzer and his cabal the excuse, as well as the public and international backing, they needed to launch their war.

{p. 85} "Hijacking attempts against civil air and surface craft could appear to continue as harassing measures condoned by the Government of Cuba." ... AN AIRCRAFT AT ELGIN AFB WOULD BE PAINTED AND NUMBERED AS AN EXACT DUPLICATE FOR A CIVIL REGISTERED AIRCRAFT belonging to a CIA proprietary organization in the Miami

{p. 86} area. At a designated time the DUPLICATE WOULD BE SUBSTITUTED FOR THE ACTUAL CIVIL AIRCRAFT AND WOULD BE LOADED WITH THE SELECTED PASSENGERS, ALL BOARDED UNDER carefully prepared ALIASES. The actual REGISTERED AIRCRAFT WOULD BE CONVERTED TO A DRONE [a remotely controlled unmanned aircraft]. Take off times of the drone aircraft and the actual aircraft will be scheduled to allow a RENDEZVOUS south of Florida.

FROM THE RENDEZVOUS POINT THE PASSENGER-CARRYING AIRCRAFT will descend to minimum altitude and go directly into an auxiliary field at Elgin AFB where arrangements will have been made to EVACUATE THE PASSENGERs and return the aircraft to its original status. The drone aircraft meanwhile will continue to fly the filed flight plan. When over Cuba the drone will be transmitting on the international distress frequency a "May Day" message stating he is under attack by Cuban MiG aircraft. The transmission will be interrupted by DESTRUCTION OF THE AIRCRAFT, which will be TRIGGERED BY RADIO SIGNAL. This will allow ICAO [International Civil Aviation Organization] radio stations in the Western Hemisphere to tell the U.S. what has happened to the aircraft instead of the U.S. trying to "sell" the incident. {endquote}

(5) Robert F Kennedy, Martin Luther King, and Thomas Merton likewise

by Peter Myers, April 8, 2020

Leading barrister Dr William Pepper concluded, after extensive study, that the CIA had assassinated Martin Luther King - and JFK, and RFK.

Robert Kennedy knew that, only by becoming President himself, could he turn the tables on his brother's assassins. But they got him first.

Dr. Pepper acted for the family of Martin Luther King, and for the man accused of killing him.

It was Pepper, then a journalist newly returned from Vietnam, who first persuaded King to come out against the Vietnam War. Pepper explained that the war was a nationalist war which the US could not win, and presented photos showing the devastation wrought in the attempt.

King being a powerful orator - the most outstanding black American of the century - his coming out against the war, combined with his plan to bring half a million blacks to Washington to press lawmakers, made him a marked man in Deep State circles (FBI & CIA). Despite King's advocacy of Non-Violence, they saw him as a great danger.

Pepper acted for the defendants incarcerated for the murders of King and Robert Kennedy. He represented these defendants only because he believed then innocent, framed by the CIA.

Confronting state agencies who were the real assassinations of King, JFK and Robert Kennedy, Pepper also became an investigator - particularly in the King case, to which he devoted 30 years of his life.

Pepper has written three books on the King Assassination, branding it An Act 0f State.

In his book The Plot to Kill King, Pepper shares the evidence and testimonies that prove that James Earl Ray was a fall guy chosen by those who viewed King as a dangerous revolutionary.

The following address by Pepper is eloquent and powerful. I urge you to watch it. It deals mainly with King, but also touches on 911:

It's only after you know the CIA role in the above assassinations, that their killing of Thomas Merton becomes comprehensible. Matthew Fox, a credible writer, was convinced:

The Martyrdom of Thomas Merton: An Investigation

Categories: Articles

August 3, 2019

By Matthew Fox

For years I have spoken out about how fishy the official story of Thomas Merton's sudden death smelled to me. I have also, over the years, met three CIA agents who were present in Southeast Asia at the time and asked them pointedly whether they killed Thomas Merton. One said:

"I will neither affirm it nor deny it."

The second (who spoke to a friend of mine, not to me) said:

"We were swimming in cash at the time with absolutely no accountability. If there was just one agent who felt Merton was a threat to the country he could have had him done in with no questions asked."

The third I met a month after my book A Way To God: Thomas Merton's Creation Spirituality Journey came out and he answered:

"Yes. And the last 40 years of my life I have been cleansing my soul from what I did as a young man working for the CIA in Southeast Asia in the 1960s." [...]
