Kennedy assassination

Rose Cheramie was found unconsciousness by the side of the road in Louisiana, on 20th November, 1963. (Biography: Rose Cheramie)

Lieutenant Francis Frudge of the Louisiana State Police took her to a hospital. On the journey Cheramie said that she had been thrown out of a car by two gangsters who worked for Jack Ruby.

She claimed that the men were plotting to kill President Kennedy in Dallas within a few days. She told the same story to doctors and nurses who treated her.

After the Kennedy assassination, Rose Cheramie told the police that Lee Harvey Oswald had visited Ruby's night club. Cheramie was killed by a hit and run driver on 4th September, 1965.

On 12th October, 1964, Mary Pinchot Meyer was shot dead. She had had an affair with John F. Kennedy. Her former husband, Cord Meyer, was a senior figure in the CIA's covert operations.

Leo Damore claimed in the New York Post that: "She (Meyer) had access to the highest levels. She was involved in illegal drug activity. What do you think it would do to the beatification of Kennedy if this woman said, 'It wasn't Camelot, it was Caligula's court'?"


Operation 40 was created by the CIA on the eve of the failed Bay of Pigs invasion. One member, Frank Sturgis, described it as an 'assassination group.' The group was presided over by Richard Nixon. Its first meeting in January 1960 was attended by David Atlee Phillips and E. Howard Hunt. Porter Goss joined the project. Cuban figures Luis Posada and Barry Seal. Some people believe that Operation 40 was linked to the kennedy assassination.

In November 1961, after the failure of the Bay of Pigs operation, President Kennedy sacked the CIA's boss Allen W. Dulles. John McCone became Director of the CIA. Richard Helms became head of the Directorate for Plans.

After the Kennedy assassination, CIA agent Gary Underhill told his friend Charlene Fitsimmons:

1. He was sure Kennedy was killed by the CIA.

2. "Oswald is a patsy. They set him up."

Gary Underhill was found dead on 8th May 1964. He had been shot in the head.

In his book 'Crossfire', Jim Marrs listed 103 people linked to Kennedy who may died in mysterious circumstances between 1963 and 1976.

Underhill believed the CIA's 'Executive Action' was involved in the death of Kennedy.

Executive Action toppled leaders such as the Congo's Lumumba, South Vietnam's Diem and Iraq's Kassem.

In his book 'The Secret Team' (1973) Leroy Fletcher Prouty claimed that elements of the CIA, working in the interests certain top business people, may have used the Executive Action unit to kill Kennedy. Prouty named CIA operative Edward Lansdale as one of the key people involved. Lansdale was Assistant Secretary of Defence for Special Operations from1961-63.

(The Military Industrial Congressional Congress - Between 1948 and 1989, the government spent more than $10 trillion (in dollars of today’s purchasing power) on defense, and much of the money found its way into the bank accounts of the defense contractors.

In 1981 U.S. Government analysts estimated that the annual sales volume of illicit drugs exceeded half a trillion dollars. The total of legitimate, recorded international trade, in all commodities, was in the order of one trillion dollars. )

In the book 'The Last Investigation', Gaeton Fonzi, a staff investigator for the House Select Committee on Assassinations argues that the assassination was organized by David Atlee Phillips, head of the CIA's Western Hemisphere Division. Phillips told the investigator, Kevin Walsh, that Kennedy had been "done in by a conspiracy, likely including rogue American intelligence people."

In the book, 'JFK: The Second Plot' (1992), Matthew Smith quotes James Wilcott, a former CIA man, who claimed that Lee Harvey Oswald had been "recruited from the military for the express purpose of becoming a double agent assignment to the USSR."

When he returned to America, Oswald's job was to pretend to be a left-wing activist. Smith argues Oswald was "taken over and run by renegade CIA agents who were dedicated to assassinating President Kennedy."

Smith claims Oswald was being set up as a patsy. Tippit was supposed to take Oswald to Cuba in order to implicate Fidel Castro in the assassination.

In September 1960, the CIA had held talks with the Mafia's Johnny Roselli and Sam Giancana, and later Carlos Marcello, Santos Trafficante and Meyer Lansky, about removing Cuba's Castro. After the 1963 assassination of Kennedy, it was rumoured that Roselli, Trafficante, Marcello and Giancana were involved, along with CIA agents such as David Atlee Phillips.

In August 1978, Victor Marchetti published an article about the assassination in Spotlight. Marchetti claimed that the House Special Committee on Assassinations had obtained a 1966 CIA memo that revealed CIA agents E. Howard Hunt, Frank Sturgis and Gerry Patrick Hemming had been involved in the plot to kill Kennedy. Hunt took legal action.

In the 1985 trial, eyewitness Marita Lorenz testified that she saw Hunt pay off a CIA-backed assassination team in Dallas the night before Kennedy's murder. (Hunt v. Liberty Lobby; U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida; 1985)

A jury decided, in January 1995, that Marchetti had not been guilty of libel when he suggested that Kennedy had been assassinated by people working for the CIA.


Did Oswald have a double?

26th August: Oswald is seen in Clinton, Louisiana, with Clay Shaw and Carlos Bringuier.
27th August: A man claiming to be Oswald visits the Cuban Consulate in Mexico City.


Jim Garrison, the district attorney of New Orleans, believed that a group of right-wing activists, including Guy Bannister, David Ferrie, Carlos Bringuier and Clay Shaw were involved in a conspiracy with the CIA to kill Kennedy.

Guy Bannister died in 1964 and David Ferrie in 1967. In 1967, Shaw was charged with conspiring to assassinate Kennedy, with the help of Oswald, Ferrie, and others. At the trial in February, 1969, Perry Russo claimed that in September, 1963, he overheard Shaw and Ferrie discussing the proposed assassination Kennedy. It was suggested that the crime could be blamed on Fidel Castro.

In his book, 'Plausible Denial', Mark Lane argues that CIA agents killed Kennedy. He claims that the conspiracy involved E.Howard Hunt and Frank Sturgis.

In Anthony Summers' 'The Kennedy Conspiracy' it is argued that Kennedy was killed by members of the CIA plus anti-Castro activists, funded by Mafia mobsters.

In his book, 'Deep Politics and the Death of JFK', Peter Dale Scott claims J Edgar Hoover was part of a cover-up operation.


Mordechai Vanunu reportedly said in an interview that Israel was linked to the assassination of President Kennedy.

Vanunu suggested that according to "near-certain indications", Kennedy was assassinated due to "pressure he exerted on then head of government, David ben-Gurion, to shed light on Dimona's nuclear reactor".

Michael Collins Piper's 'Final Judgment' suggests that there was a Mossad/CIA link to the Kennedy assassination.

New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison accused businessman Clay Shaw of being involved in the JFK assassination. Garrison discovered that Shaw was on the board of Permindex. A primary shareholder in Permindex was the Banque De Credit International of Geneva, founded by Tibor Rosenbaum, allegedly a 'financier of Mossad'.

The allegedly 'Mossad-sponsored' Swiss bank was reportedly the chief 'money laundry' for Meyer Lansky, an Israeli loyalist 'with links to the CIA'.


1. Kennedy was in conflict with Israel over nuclear weapons.

2. Lyndon Johnson reversed Kennedy's policy toward Israel.

3. The top Mafia figures alleged to be behind the JFK assassination 'were only front men for Meyer Lansky'.

4. The CIA's liaison to the Mossad, James Angleton, 'was a prime mover behind the cover-up of the JFK assassination.'
