Note: A lot of good people have spent decades chasing after an elusive and fragmented truth with respect to the JFK assassination. Most of them have earned only scorn and name calling as 'conspiracy buffs' or 'conspiracy theorists' by media and government disinformation resources. Many of them continue today without knowledge that the truth has largely been admitted by the group responsible. Many of the conspiracy hunters have been vindicated, while others still search in hopes of that 'smoking gun.' But what better smoking gun than a confession? And we have one! Read it here! It is now time to seek to go beyond JFK as far as wrestling with the various conspiracy theories. There is no need to waste energy there. There are now bigger questions to ask.

JFK died for a reason. The gunmen that pulled the trigger are nothing more than the extension of a greater unseen power, a power with the motive. Cracking that is where I would suggest your efforts should turn next -- instead of making/defending the many alternative theories as to who did the deed itself (though some names are not yet known, and other names, like Bush, need more concrete ties drawn). Who did it is visible, who directed and who ordered them to do it, is less visible -- though their shimmering form can be seen and seems to be firming up.

Take the trail to the the Three and Five "I"s, being careful to avoid the false leads suggesting they refer to the identities of Permindex, Division Five, American Council of Christian Churches, the Solidarists, and DISC. There are connections between the two assassinated Kennedys that are so ironic as to exceed the Greek tragedies. Go back to square one to the formation of OSS/CIA Follow the money from there forward. Remember: "The fascists are coming.". If you know what a fascist is... you know what an elitist is... you know what a globalist is...

You might also ask: If CIA were to undertake an assassination of an American President (or anyone else), would not they lay careful contingency plans? What plan would they make for it going completely wrong, and blame coming back to Langley? How would they survive the public wrath had the media known and published the truth in '64 instead of publishing the Warren Commission?

The answer is a secret CIA within CIA (Shadow), one able to operate on its own infrastructure, and able to fund its own way through crime. Should Langley die, CIA would survive, but completely invisible and free of government oversight -- something that might eventually be better for dark deeds than having CIA In fact, it might even explain why CIA is willing to expose itself to the JFK noose at this time: Shadow may well be fully prepared to replace CIA today. If such a thing as Shadow were to exist, what would it look like and do? The answer just might be the history since Kennedy (both history perceived through media filters and the reality of hidden truths behind the headlines), which can be expressed in oversimplified math, a math which some may not understand:

U2 + Lee Oswald = neutering of Ike; 40 + 40 + 40 = death of Camelot; Vietnam + Tonkin = Asian drug supply; Robert Vesco + Nugan Hand = financial superstructure; Langley - proprietaries being disbanded = infrastructure (free of congressional oversight); Watergate + 5 Break Ins = Assassination of Nixon; Paisley "murder" + Bush = CIA purge (freeing agents for insertion into public sector and segregating agents by loyalties); War on Drugs = South American drug supply; MK-ULTRA/Artichoke + Cult Awareness Network = RFK (and more, including Jones Town and Waco); METC UNIT = WTC, OK; Evergreen + Gordon's = Orange shipments (capable of producing two kinds of highs); NSA + Clipper/Chipper = NRO in every home; Iran/Contra + Bush/Secord = Lockerbee; CFR + Trilateral Commission = Secret Government; LEA + NIA = In-place assets, Liddy Institute; Ingram + BR Fox = Offshore Murder, Inc. Arms Supply; ADL + B'nai Brith + CIA + Law Enforcement = Networking spy data on American Citizens; Media + CIA = Reuters, K. Graham, Time-Warner, CBS, Hilton Knowles and the rest; and I think I had better stop because I'm bound to have made enough enemies already or tossed out more than you care to consider, anyway. These are some of the things we discuss in our Group -- the greater issue of the war at hand, not just one lost battle in 1963.

Enough food for thought -- here is the post from the CIA news group. Be warned, however, that I have already had comment from CIA apologists who have been attacking this material for years by use of the 25 Rules of Disinformation (variants on misdirection, confusion, non-logic logic, disinformation, disparaging attacks on sources, and so forth), and they are well prepared to use their arguments on you. Should you be unprepared to deal with the trickery of their non-arguments, just ask two questions of them when they do -- and they must wither away. If there are any better confessions from other sources out there, where are they (can they provide an alternative conclusion with better credentials -- or are they just attacking this one)? In absence of other officious proofs, why do they try so hard to destroy this one? Know your enemy by their actions.

CIA Confesses to Kennedy Assassination

Trial Testimony by Deposition Under Oath of CIA agent Marita Lorenz
From the Defamation Trial of E. Howard Hunt vs. Liberty Lobby
United States District Court for Southern District of Florida, January 1985
 

What follows is the ultimate indictment of E. Howard Hunt and other Operation 40 CIA (AKA Operation Zapata, AKA Bay of Pigs Invasion) agents for the murder of John Kennedy. That not one media representative present at the trial dared print a single word indicts media as being Shadow controlled. That this same testimony was given to FBI within days of the assassination is an indictment of the Justice Department as being Shadow controlled. That the judge presiding over the trial did not order follow-up investigation or indictments for murder is an indictment of the court system as being Shadow controlled. That the same testimony was given the Rockefeller Commission (CFR/Bilderberger/TriLateralist) House Select Committee on Assassinations and nothing was done with the information is an indictment of Congressional oversight as being Shadow controlled.

Beyond the virtual confession, it is clear that what is taking place here is that CIA (not only by virtue of the testimony, but also by virtue of cross questioning directed by CIA provided defense lawyers which seemed deliberately designed to maximize damage and bring out the facts) is hanging Hunt and select other CIA out to dry, 'twisting in the wind'. This is likely a means of neutralizing and punishing Hunt for his blackmail of CIA -- a move made safer by virtue of having captured the cartons of evidence from flight 553 after its 'crash' on schedule and on target where 50 'FBI agents' awaited it (a grand conspiracy worthy of further investigation on its own right - start with Big Brother and the Holding Company).

I strongly suggest you read Mark Lane's chilling work, Plausible Denial, from which this material was first made public.

Note commercial plug>: Shadow is this author's name for what Daniel Sheenan of the Christic Institute describes as the Secret Team, those elements of CIA and the military-industrial-intelligence-media complex which seek to serve an agenda other than national security. Shadow is the central villain in Fatal Rebirth, a prophetic glimpse of what lies ahead based on the revelations of the would-be secret past -- with over 500 foot notes and an Appendix section which is itself book sized. Fatal Rebirth was born amid a 007 adventure forced on the author when he came into possession of a document someone in the intelligence world took strong exception to -- a document detailing many sins of intel and their true masters within the secret government. Analysis and investigation was undertaken in self defense, an effort soon joined by several former intel operatives and at least one 'Deep Throat' from within the enemy camp. This revealed much about who and why, and provided the puzzle pieces needed to make sense of it all. Publisher interest welcomed. <end of commercial plug>.

Cross Examination to follow. Note: According to Liberty Lobby lawyer, Mark Lane, Lorenz had confided outside of testimony that she got out of Dallas quickly because 'I knew that this was different from other jobs. This was not just gun running. This was big, very big, and I wanted to get out. I told Sturgis I wanted to leave. He said it was a very big operation but that my part was not dangerous. I was to be a decoy. Before he could go further, I said please let me get out. I want to go back to my baby in Miami. Finally he agreed and drove me to the airport.' She further stated she would not reveal the names of others in the cars going to Dallas because 'They killed Kennedy. I don't want to be the one to reveal their names; it's too dangerous.'

However, it would seem apparent that perhaps the agency no longer wished to provide Hunt with any level of protection -- perhaps because they did not like being blackmailed. The evidence for this conclusion lies in the additional information volunteered during cross examination which Mark Lane was unable to obtain himself, directly. Since Lorenz had been coached by CIA council (on what Agency would permit her to say) who also worked with Hunt's CIA sponsored council, it would appear that perhaps the CIA' vested interest was actually working against their 'client', Hunt, rather than for him. In fact, Hunt's whole problem of being accused of being in Dallas surfaced only because former CIA agent Victor Marchetti claimed in 1978 Hunt was in Dallas and Liberty Lobby dared to publish the story. As you read, note how both the lawyer and Lorenz tend to volunteer or bring out information more than called for, and how nothing in the cross examination aids the defense or nullifies earlier testimony. Defense would have been better off not to challenge the witness. It would seem a deliberate confession.

It should also be pointed out that Lorenz says she was inducted into CIA in 1959, and that apparently she and Frank Sturgis worked together early on -- suggesting that even when she was supposedly working for the New York Police Department and the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration). If true, this would make her and Sturgis illegal in-place CIA operatives within the DEA and NYPD -- likely working under CIA Operation Phoenix assassin king, Lou Conein (founding leader of DEA), to help eliminate drug lords not under CIA control or being supplied by CIA, and to protect CIA conduits and suppliers, the true purpose of the 'War on Drugs'.
