Col. L. Fletcher Prouty on the JFK assasination
LET THE TRUTH BE KNOWN THOUGH THE HEAVENS FALL
Two of the most powerful writings of Col. L. Fletcher Prouty have been
selected for your review. This material should be studied carefully for the
dramatic revelations therein are somewhat counterintuitive or at any rate they
are counter to what is presented on network news.
The first document is "essentially a copy of a letter sent to Jim Garrison"
during the period when Garrison was experiencing difficulty finding a
publisher for his manuscript, ON THE TRAIL OF THE ASSASSINS. ON THE TRAIL OF
THE ASSASSINS together with Prouty's soon to be published A SAIGON SOLUTION
form a major portion of the basis of the Oliver Stone movie JFK. Garrison
gave this letter to his publisher, who in turn gave a copy to Oliver Stone.
Events that followed will be illuminated by carefully studying this document.
Special attention should be given to the modus operandi of General Lansdale.
Lansdale would divide his forces in half and half would "play" the insurgents
and half would "play" the counterinsurgents. This modus operandi has been
played out on a world scale. It is in fact the basis of all the phoney
The next article deals with another assassination which Prouty believes is as
significant as the JFK assassination. Of central concern is the Joint US)USSR
Trade and Economic Commission which is also a factor in the KOREAN OO7 CRASH.
This trade mission, of which the American public knows nothing, is of
paramount importance in understanding east\west developments. Clearly those
convening this unprecedented conference in 1972 were planning the dissolution
of the eastern block nations in 1990 ))*) eighteen years in advance!! It may
come as a shock that those who run the world plan and act on such a grand
When President Kennedy was assassinated, Prouty was the liaison between the
Secretary of Defence and the CIA Director Allen Dulles. Frequently he would
work out of the very homes of the Dulles brothers. Two books which help
illuminate the activities of these brothers are DULLES by Leonard Mosley and A
LAW UNTO ITSELF (about the SULLIVAN AND CROMWELL law firm) by Nancy Lisagor
and Frank Lipsius. The book THE SOONG DYNASTY is a good companion to these.
In DULLES, Leonard recants how Allen Dulles would throw a party each year for
the 50 top execs of CIA and the 50 top execs of CBS at the ALIBI CLUB in
Washington D.C. Knowing this makes it easier to understand why Dan Rather
never mentions that he was standing under the Triple Underpass, close to the
picket fence in Dealey Plaza when Kennedy was shot.
The relationship of SULLIVAN AND CROMWELL, their clients GeorgeT h)THerbert
Walker, Prescott Bush, the Rockefellers, BROWN BROTHERS HARRIMAN to the German
cartels is articulated in a Prouty interview with researcher John Judge in a
video tape available from INTELLIGENCE CONNECTION, P.O. Box 565, Phoenix,
Arizona 85001 for $24.95.
Following this are investigative reports from volume X of the Final Report of
the SELECT COMMITTEE ON ASSASSINATIONS which relate directly to portions of
the Oliver Stone movie. Clearly, if anything, Stone erred on the side of

spotlight ))) shouldn't we try to look above them for conspirators at the
In this regard I have attached the SELECT COMMITTEE report entitled ANTONIO
VECIANA BLANCH. In this report Veciana identifies his CIA case officer of 20
years, David Atlee Phillips, as someone who had personal contact with Lee
Harvey Oswald in the weeks preceding the assassination. This is significant
because Phillips was just one of three high ranking officials of U.S.
intelligence to have personal contact with both Lee Harvey Oswald and Nelson
Rockefeller in the weeks preceding the assassination. William Gaudet not only
was personally acquainted with Nelson Rockefeller and Oswald, (his application
for a visas to Mexico City was one number before Oswald's) but days after Ruby
shot Oswald, Gaudet gave the FBI information of Ruby's activities in New
The third Rockefeller/Oswald connection is even more sinister. We must be
cognizant of the fact that Nelson Rockefeller originally recruited the agents
that became the Latin American wing of the CIA when he established the OFFICE
OF INTER AMERICAN AFFAIRS for President Roosevelt during WW II. George
DeMorenschildt was described in Gerald Ford's book PORTRAIT OF THE ASSASSIN as
"Oswald's best friend in Dallas". DeMorenschildt introduced Oswald to Ruth
and Michael Paine and then never saw Oswald again. The SELECT COMMITTEE ON
ASSASSINATIONS considered him to be the most valuable witness. In 1941
DeMorenschildt was arrested in Mexico City in the company of Rodney MacArthur,
nephew of General Douglas MacArthur,and charged with spying. This was the
third time he was arrested and charged with spying.
The last document is WARREN COMMISSION DOCUMENT 533. It is a report of the
effects found on DeMorenschildt at the time of this last arrest. The original
archivist of the WARREN COMMISSION could have buried this document behind the
900 pages of dental records of Jack Ruby's mother but he placed this toward
the front. For me it is the most significant document in the report. The
reader is left to draw his own sobering conclusions.

THE ASSASSINATION OF ALFRED HERRHAUSEN
On November 30, 1989 Alfred Herrhausen, then Chairman of the Deutsche Bank,
West Germany's largest bank, was assassinated on the streets of Frankfurt.
This murder was noted in the newspapers around the world, and then totally
dropped. One that day, he had with him a copy of a speech he had been invited
to give at the Third Annual Arthur F. Burns Memorial Lecture at the American
Council on Germany in New York City on December 4, 1989...within the week of
his murder. In this speech he planned to eulogize his old friend Arthur
Burns. Arthur Burns, you will recall, had been a long)time Chairman of the
Federal Reserve Board. He had been Ambassador to the Federal Republic of
Germany. Burns had been born in a part of Eastern Europe that belonged to
Austria, at the time, and that is now part of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist
Republic. Arthur Burns was a lecturer and advisor at the Graduate School of
Banking at the University of Wisconsin when I was attending that Graduate
It is absolutely astounding that the subject of the savage murder of this
man...Alfred Herrhausen...has been dropped so suddenly from the news. The
Deutsche Bank of Germany is undoubtedly one of the most important banks in the
world, and its Chairman herrhausen was one of the most important spokesmen of
the banking profession around the world. He would have been a key man in all
His loss at this time...and the startling nature of his loss are without
question...for our day...the equal of the loss of President John F. Kennedy in
Considering the time...the enormous train of events taking place in the Soviet
Union, in Eastern Europe and particularly in East Germany...the murder of
Herrhausen is an act of enormous significance. It can not be, and must not be
swept under the rug as just "another act of terrorism." True terrorists do not
murder bank presidents without some special reason. Most terrorists are
actually the paid pawns, and "mechanics" of great power centers. Some major
power center wanted the Chairman of Deutsche Bank removed on that day, in that
manner for some reason, and as a lesson to others. There has to be a great
message in the act of his death.
Do you recall when President Kennedy was murdered? He was on his way to
deliver an important speech in Dallas, Texas. On that fateful day, President
Kennedy was prepared to say:
I want to discuss with you today the status of our strength and our
security...this nation's strength and security are not easily or cheaply
obtained, nor are they quickly and simply explained. There are many kinds of
strength and no one kind will suffice. Overwhelming nuclear strength cannot
stop a guerrilla war. Formal pacts of alliance cannot stop internal
subversion. Displays of material wealth cannot stop the disillusionment of
diplomats subject to discrimination.
But American military might should not and need not stand alone against the
ambitions of international communism., Our security and strength, in the last
analysis, directly depend on the security and strength of others, and that is
why our military and economic assistance plays such a key role in enabling
those who live on the periphery of the Communist world to maintain their
independence of choice."FP ` F
Those were the words of President Kennedy planned to say on the day he died.
As you hear them tonight you will realize that you can almost apply them with
precision to the events of this era. Kennedy was speaking in 1963...but he
was looking ahead.
Only one month earlier President Kennedy had directed the Secretary of Defense
to bring 1,000 men home from Vietnam in time for Christmas; and he had
promised to have all Americans out of Vietnam before the end of 1965. He, and
members of his administration, knew all too well that "nuclear strength cannot
stop a guerrilla war," and that outsiders could not do it either. The
Vietnamese were going to have to win their own war.
As he had said in an earlier speech:
There is no single simple policy which meets this challenge for the
independence and equality of all nations. Experience has taught us that no
one nation has the power or the wisdom to solve all the problems of the world
or manage its revolutionary tides...that extending our commitments does not
always increase our security...that any initiative carries with it the risk of
temporary defeat...that nuclear weapons cannot prevent subversion...that no
free people can be kept free without will and energy of their own..."
I have brought these words from the time of Camelot up because they are so
fresh in our minds today. A column in the New York Times of last Sunday,
February 11, 1990 had this to say:
The new knowledge of how to release nuclear energy, permanently changed the
political life of the world. Indeed, the recent dramatic changes in Eastern
Europe arguably followed directly from the stalemate that the fear of nuclear
Note these two references to the awesome power of Nuclear weapons and the year
in which they were made. kennedy was speaking, 27 years ago, of nuclear
weapons and subversive activities. This New York Times column by Richard
Rhodes appeared this week, and spoke of total nuclear destruction. kennedy
was correct. Rhodes cites conventional wisdom and overlooks the real reason
for what is happening today in the Soviet Union and in Eastern Europe.
Let's look at other angles. There are long range business reasons for what is
taking place in USSR and Eastern Europe.
One of the strangest and most unusual meetings ever to have taken place in
Washington was convened by the Nixon Administration, February 7)9, 1972. This
meeting of more than 1,500 of the nation's top business leaders, was called:
"The White House Conference on the Industrial World Ahead: A Look at Business
In a summary Discussion that followed this, momentous series of meetings, Roy
L. Ash, President, Litton Industries, Inc. said:
"...State capitalism may well be a form for world business in the world
ahead...the western countries are treading toward a more unified and
controlled economy, CChaving a greater effect on businessDD; and that the
communist nations are moving more and more toward a CCfree market systemDD.
The question posed, on which a number of divergent opinions arose, was whether
East and West would meet some place toward the middle about 1990."
In Summary, another speaker, Mr. Frere, said:
"...Communist countries are experimenting with the concept of a market
economy...and, the communist countries are forecasting the influx of heavy
capital investments by 1990 by the western states."
NOTE: It is interesting to note that Mr. Jean Frere was, in 1972, Managing
Partner, Banque Lambert in Brussels, Belgium. It is an affiliate of this
enormous financial institution that declared itself in bankruptcy yesterday.
See what these men were saying in 1972, about the state of the Industrial
World in 1990. They hit it right on the nose. When major businessmen,
especially their lawyers and bankers, hit the target on the nose like that you
know they are in control. As we said during an earlier program, Mr.
Banker...Mr. George Champion, formerly President of City Bank and President of
the Economic Development Council of New York...said:
"When the American citizen is living in debt..."
"When American business is operating in debt..."
"When the American government is in debt..."
"Bankers rule the world."
That message appeared in Forbes magazine.
It was no mistake that these business giants hit their target. This
development in 1990 was planned that way. Neither Bush, Reagan, Thatcher,
Mitterrand, Kohl or Gorbychev did it. This is the work of the business
world...over two strenuous decades.
Let's recall some of the events tied in with this amazing Conference in
The Presiding Chairman was the Secretary of Commerce, Maurice Stans. He
resigned as Secretary on February 15, 1972 and became the head of Nixon's
The Evening Program was headed by President Richard Nixon. The first U.S.
President ever to resign while in office as a result of the Watergate episode
that was an outgrowth of the activities of the Committee to Re)elect the
On the panel, "Structure of the Free Enterprise System" was Alan Greenspan,
presently Chairman of the Federal Reserve System. T
The Luncheon Address, 2nd day, was given by the Secretary of the Treasury,
John B. Connally. He resigned the office of Secretary on June 12, 1972.
George Shultz became Secretary.
Speaking on "The U.S. Position in World Business and the Economy)*1990", Peter
G. Peterson from the White House staff and the man who replaced Stans as
Secretary of Commerce.
We must keep all of this in perspective. As far back as 1972 the U.S.
Government and the top U.S. businessmen had their sights set on the year 1990
and, as Roy Ash said in a summary of the conference:
East and West would meet someplace toward the middle about 1990."
Remember, that was during a turbulent February, 1972.
THEN: On May 26, 1972,...only 3 months later...President Nixon and General
Secretary Brezhnev agreed to establish a Joint US)USSR Commercial Commission
to promote mutually beneficial commercial relations.
This organization became the US)USSR Trade and Economic Council, and a
companion organization that joined the U.S. Chamber of Commerce with its
With these organizations laying the groundwork, arrangements were made for a
twenty)year long preparatory program. With regular meeting in Moscow and New
York City every 6 months, plus a permanent staff. One year after 1970 not one
speech on the energy crisis. Keep the calendar in mind: In early 1973 the
White House convened a conference under the auspices of the National Defense
Transportation Association, to warn business, especially the transportation
sector, that the price of petroleum products would rise precipitously before
the end of the year. How did they know that? It was planned that way!
That fall there was an Arab)Israeli war, and an "Arab Oil Embargo" was alleged
and the price of petroleum products began to rise four)fold. This action
increased oil profits by hundreds of billions of dollars per year. In 1979,
the "Three Mile Island" episode was exploited to run these prices even higher.
Just as the Alaskan Spill did this year.
By this time we can see that big money)making projects run in waves: WW II,
the Cold War, including Korea and Vietnam, the Petroleum heist. Now this
opening of the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe with their enormous
marketsT#'|)|)|)00Tfor civilian goods will be the next wave. A wave of
business...not ideology...not politics...not military.
Few people, and no media, go beyond the cover stories. Just one example: at
the close of WW II the U.S.A. had spent $155 billion on the development of the
Nuclear Age. This $155 billion asset was given to businesses...courtesy of
After decades of the "Red Threat", "Communism", "The Evil Empire" and all the
other horror stories, we are now coming down for an easy landing that was
planned back in 1972.
At the same time, we must keep in mind the warning of "The Report From Iron
Mountain." Can the United States government remain dominant and virile without
the threat of war? Can the U.S.A. find a way to live and thrive in an era of
peace? We have been getting some strong voices on this subject:
One of the first of these was Walter Wriston, formerly Chairman of Citibank
with his prophetic book "Risk and Other Four Letter Words." He says that in a
world of global finance, global communications and global transport there is
no longer any national sovereignty and that the age of One World is
here...like it or not.
As if to verify his early work, I have enclosed copies of speeches made by the
Chairmen of two major U.S. corporations, under the heading "Panel Discussion
Summary: A Look at Business in 1990."
Essentially a copy of a letter sent to Jim Garrison.
It is amazing how things work, I am at home recuperating from a major back
operation (to regain my ability to walk); so I was tossing around in bed last
night...not too comfortable...and I began to think of Garrison. I thought, "I
have got to write Jim a letter detailing how I believe the whole job was
By another coincidence I had received a fine set of twenty photos from the
Sprague collection in Springfield, Mass. As the odds would have it, he is now
living just around the corner here in Alexandria. Why not? Lansdale lived
here, Fensterwald lives here. Ford used to live here. Quite a community.
I was studying those photos. One of them is the "Tramps" picture that appears
in your book. It is glossy and clear. Lansdale is so clearly identifiable.
Why, Lansdale in Dallas? The others don't matter, they are nothing but actors
and not gunmen: but they are interesting. Others who knew Lansdale as well as
I did, have said the same thing, "That's him. What's he doing there?"
As I was reading the paper the Federal Express man came with a book from Jim,
that unusual "Lansdale" book. A terrible biography. There could be a great
biography about Lansdale. He's no angel; but he is worth a good biography.
Currey, a paid hack, did the job. His employers ought to have let him do it
I had known Ed since 1952 in the Philippines. I used to fly there regularly
with my MATS Heavy Transport Squadron. As a matter of fact, in those days we
used to fly wounded men, who were recuperating, from hospitals in Japan to
Saigon for R&R on the beaches of Cap St Jacque. That was 1952)1953. Saigon
was the Paris of the Orient. And Lansdale was "King Maker" of the
Philippines. We always went by way of Manila. I met his team.
He had arrived in Manila in Sept 1945, after the war was over, for a while.
He had been sent back there in 1950 by the CIA(OPC) to create a new leader of
the Philippines and to get rid of Querino. Sort of like the Marcos deal, or
the Noriega operation. Lansdale did it better. I have overthrown a
government but I didn't splash it all around like Reagan and Bush have done.
Now, who sent him there? Who sen him there in 1950 (Truman era) to do a job
that was not done until 1953 (Ike era)? From 1950 to Feb 1953 the Director of
Central Intelligence was Eisenhower's old Chief of Staff, Gen
WalterTK')))00TBedell Smith. Smith had been Ambassador to Moscow from 1946 to
1949. The lesser guys in the CIA at the time were Allen Dulles, who was
Deputy Director Central Intelligence from Aug 1951 to Feb 1953. Frank Wisner
became the Deputy Director, Plans (Clandestine Activities) when Dulles became
DDCI. Lansdale had to have received his orders from among these four men:
Truman, Smith, Dulles, and Wisner. Of course the Sec State could have had
some input...i.e. Acheson. Who wanted Querino out, that badly? Who wanted
In Jan 1953 Eisenhower arrived. John Foster Dulles was at State and Gen Smith
his Deputy. Allen Dulles was the DCI and General Cabel his deputy. None of
them changed Lansdale's prior orders to "get" Querino. Lansdale operated with
abandon in the Philippines. The Ambassador and the CIA Station Chief, George
Aurell, did not know what he was doing. They believed he was some sort of
kook Air Force Officer there...a role Lansdale played to the hilt. Magsaysay
became President, Dec 30, 1953.
With all of this on the record, and a lot more, this guy Currey comes out of
the blue with this purported "Biography". I knew Ed well enough and long
enough to know that he was a classic chameleon. He would tell the truth
sparingly and he would fabricate a lot. Still, I can not believe that he told
Currey the things Currey writes. Why would Lansdale want Currey to perpetuate
such out and out bullshit about him? Can't be. This is a terribly fabricated
book. It's not even true about me. I believe that this book was ordered and
delineated by the CIA.
At least I know the truth about myself and about Gen. Krulak. Currey libels
us terribly. In fact it may be Krulak who caused the book to be taken off the
shelves. Krulak and his Copley Press cohorts have the power to get that done,
and I encouraged them to do just that when it first came out. Krulak was mad!
Ed told me many a time how he operated in the Philippines. He said, "All I
had was a blank checkbook signed by the U.S. government." He made friends with
many influential Filipinos. I have met Johnny Orendain and Col Valeriano,
among others, in Manila with Lansdale. He became acquainted with the
wealthiest Filipino of them all, Soriano. Currey never even mentions him.
Soriano set up Philippine Airlines and owned the big San Miguel beer company,
among other things. Key man in Asia.
Lansdale's greatest strategy was to create the "HUKS" as the enemy and to make
Magsaysay the "Huk Killer." He would take Magsaysay's battalion out into a
"Huk" infested area. He would use movies and "battlefield" sound systems,
i.e. fireworks to scare the poor natives. Then one)half of Magsaysay's
battalion, dressed as natives, would "attach" the village at night. They fire
into the air and burn some shacks. In the morning the other half, in uniform,
would attack and "capture" the "Huks". They would bind them up in front of
the natives who crept back from the forests, and even have a "firing" squad
"kill" some of them. Then they would have Magsaysay make a big speech to the
people and the whole battalion would roll down the road to have breakfast
together somewhere...ready for the next "show".
Ed would always see that someone had arranged to have newsmen and camera men
there and Magsaysay soon became a national hero. This was a tough game and Ed
bragged that a lot of people were killed; but in the end Magsaysay became the
"elected" President and Querino was ousted "legally."
This formula endeared Ed to Allen Dulles. In 1954 Dulles established the
Saigon Military Mission in Vietnam...counter to Eisenhower's orders. He had
the French accept Lansdale as its chief. This mission was not in Saigon. It
was not military, and its job was subversion in Vietnam. Its biggest job was
that it got more than 1,100,000 northern Vietnamese to move south. 660,000 by
U.S. Navy ships and the rest by CIA airline planes. These 1,100,000 north
Vietnamese became the "subversive" element in South Vietnam and the principal
cause of the warmaking. Lansdale and his cronies (Bohanon, Arundel, Phillips,
Hand, Conein and many others) did all that using the same check book. I was
with them many times during 1954. All Mathuseanism.
I have heard him brag about capturing random Vietnamese and putting them in a
Helicopter. Then they would work on them to make them "confess" to being Viet
Minh. When they would not, they would toss them out of the chopper, one after
the other, until the last ones talked. This was Ed's idea of fun...as related
to me many times. Then Dulles, Adm Radford and Cardinal Spellman set up Ngo
Dinh Diem. He and his brother, Nhu, became Lansdale proteges.
At about 1957 Lansdale was brought back to Washington and assigned to Air
Force Headquarters in a Plans office near mine. He was a fish out of water.
He didn't know Air Force people and Air Force ways. After about six months of
that, Dulles got the Office of Special Operations under General Erskine to ask
for Lansdale to work for the Secretary of Defense. Erskine was man enough to
By 1960 Erskine had me head the Air Force shop there. He had an Army shop and
a Navy shop and we were responsible for all CIA relationships as well as for
the National Security Agency. Ed was still out of his element because he did
not know the services; but the CIA sent work his way.
Then in the Fall of 1960 something happened that fired him up. Kennedy was
elected over Nixon. Right away Lansdale figured out what he was going to do
with the new President. Overnight he left for Saigon to see Diem and to set
up a deal that would make him, Lansdale, Ambassador to Vietnam. He had me buy
a "Father of his Country" gift for Diem...$700.00.
I can't repeat all of this but you should get a copy of the Gravel edition, 5
Vol.s, of the Pentagon Papers and read it. The Lansdale accounts are quite
good and reasonably accurate.
Ed came back just before the Inauguration and was brought into the White House
for a long presentation to Kennedy about Vietnam. Kennedy was taken by it and
promised he would have Lansdale back in Vietnam "in a high office". Ed told
us in OSO he had the Ambassadorship sewed up. He lived for that job.
He had not reckoned with some of JFK's inner staff, George Ball, etc. Finally
the whole thing turned around and month by month Lansdale's star sank over the
horizon. Erskine retired and his whole shop was scattered. The Navy men went
back to the navy as did the Army folks. Gen Wheeler in the JCS asked to have
me assigned to the Joint Staff. This wiped out the whole Erskine (Office of
Special Operations) office. It was comical. There was Lansdale up there all
by himself with no office and no one else. He boiled and he blamed it on
Kennedy for not giving him the "promised" Ambassadorship to let him "save"
Then with the failure of the Bay of Pigs, caused by that phone call to cancel
the air strikes by McGeorge Bundy, the military was given the job of
reconstituting some sort of Anti)Castro operation. It was headed by an Army
Colonel; but somehow Lansdale (most likely CIA influence) got put into the
plans for Operation Mongoose...to get Castro...ostensibly.
The U.S. Army has a think tank at American University. It was called
"Operation Camelot". This is where the "Camelot" concept came from. It was
anti)JFK's Vietnam strategy. The men running it were Lansdale types, Special
Forces background. "Camelot" was King Arthur and Knights of the Round Table:
Through 1962 and 1963 Mongoose and "Camelot" became strong and silent
organizations dedicated to countering JFK. Mongoose had access to the CIA's
best "hit men" in the business and a lot of "strike" capability. Lansdale had
many old friends in the media business such as Joe Alsop, Henry Luce among
others. With this background and with his poisoned motivation I am positive
that he got collateral orders to manage the Dallas event under the guise of
"getting" Castro. It is so simple at that level. A nod from the right place,
source immaterial, and the job's done. The "hit" is the easy part. The
"escape" must be quick and professional. The cover)up and the scenario are
the big jobs, They more than anything else prove the Lansdale mastery.
Lansdale was a master writer and planner. He was a great "scenario" guy. It
still have a lot of his personally typed material in my files. I am certain
that he was behind the elaborate plan and mostly the intricate and enduring
cover)up. Given a little help from friends at PEPSICO he could easily have
gotten Nixon into Dallas, for "orientation': and LBJ in the cavalcade at the
same time, contrary to Secret Service policy.
He knew the "Protection" units and the "Secret Service", who was needed and
who wasn't. Those were routine calls for him, and they would have believed
him. Cabell could handle the police.
The "hit men" were from CIA overseas sources, for instance, from the "Camp
near Athena, Greece. They are trained, stateless, and ready to go at any
time. They ask no questions: speak to no one. They are simply told what to
do, when and where. Then they are told how they will be removed and
protected. After all, they work for the U.S. Government. The "Tramps" were
actors doing the job of cover)up. The hit men are just pros. They do the job
for The CIA anywhere. They are impersonal. They get paid. They get
protected, and they have enough experience to "blackmail" anyone, if anyone
ever turns on them...just like Drug agents. The job was clean, quick and
neat. No ripples.
The whole story of the POWER of the Cover)up comes down to a few points.
There has never been a Grand Jury and trial in TExas. Without a trial there
can be nothing. Without a trial it does no good for researchers to dig up
data. It has no place to go and what the researchers reveal just helps make
the cover*up tighter, or they eliminate that evidence and the researcher.
The first man LBJ met with on Nov 29th, after he had cleared the foreign
dignitaries out of Washington was Waggoner Carr, Atty Gen'l, Texas to tell
him. "No trial in Texas...ever."
The next man he met, also on Nov 29th, was J. Edgar Hoover. The first
question LBJ asked his old "19 year" neighbor in DC was "Were THEY shooting at
me?" LBJ thought that THEY had been shooting at him also as they shot at his
friend John Connally. Note that he asked, "Were THEY shooting at me?" LBJ
knew there were several hitmen. That's the ultimate clue...THEY.
The Connallys said the same thing...THEY. Not Oswald.
Then came the heavily loaded press releases about Oswald all written before
the deal and released actually before LHO had ever been charged with the
crime. I bought the first newspaper EXTRA on the streets of Christchurch, New
Zealand with the whole LHO story in that first news...photos and columns of it
before the police in Dallas had yet to charge him with that crime. All this
canned material about LHO was flashed around the world.
Lansdale and his Time)Life and other media friends, with Valenti in Hollywood,
have been doing that cover)up since Nov 1963. Even the deMorenschildt story
enhances all of this. In deM's personal telephone/address notebook ha has the
name of an Air Force Colonel friend of mine, Howard Burrus. Burrus was always
deep in intelligence. He had been in one of the most sensitive Attache spots
in Europe...Switzerland. He was a close friend of another Air Force Colonel
and Attache, Godfrey McHugh, who used to date Jackie Bouvier. DeM had Burrus
listed under a DC telephone number and on that same telephone number he had
"L.B.Johnson, Congressman." Quite a connection. Why...from the Fifties yet.?
Godfrey McHugh was the Air Force Attache in Paris. Another most important
job. I knew him well, and I transferred his former Ass't Attache to my office
in the Pentagon. This gave me access to a lot of information I wanted in the
Fifties. This is how I learned that McHugh's long)time special "date" was the
fair Jacqueline...yes, the same Jackie Bouvier. Sen. Kennedy met Jackie in
Paris when he was on a trip. At that time JFK was dating a beautiful SAS
Airline Stewardess who was the date of that Ass't Attache who came to my
office. JFK dumped her and stole Jackie away from McHugh. Leaves McHugh
At the JFK Inaugural Ball who should be there but the SAS stewardess,
Jackie)*of course, and Col Godfrey McHugh. JFK made McHugh a General and made
him his "Military Advisor" in the White HOuse where he was near Jackie while
JFK was doing all that official travelling connected with his office AND other
special interests. Who recommended McHugh for the job?
General McHugh was in Dallas and was on Air Force One, with Jackie, on the
flight back to Washington..as was Jack Valenti. Why was LBJ's old cohort
there at that time and why was he on Air Force One? He is now the Movie Czar.
Why in Dallas?
See how carefully all of this is interwoven. Burrus is now a very wealthy man
in Washington. I have lost track of McHugh. And Jackie is doing well. All
in the Lansdale shadows.
One of Lansdale's special "black" intelligence associates in the Pentagon was
Dorothy Matlack of U.S. Army Intelligence. How does it happen that when deM.
flew from Haiti to testify, he was met at the National Airport by Dorothy?
The Lansdale story is endless. What people do not do is study the entire
environment of his strange career. For example: the most important part of my
book, "The Secret Team", is not something that I wrote. It is Appendix III
under the title, "Training Under The Mutual Security Program."This is a most
important bit of material. It tells more about the period 1963 to 1990 than
anything. I fought to have it included verbatim in the book. This material
was the work of Lansdale and his crony General Dick Stillwell. Anyone
interested in the "JFK Coup d'Etat" ought to know it by heart.
I believe this document tells why the Coup took place. It was to reverse the
sudden JFK re)orientation of the U.S. Government from Asia to Europe, in
keeping with plans made in 1943 at Cairo and Teheran by T.V. Soon and his
Asian masterminds. Lansdale and Stillwell were long)time "Asia hands" as were
Gen Erskine, Adm Radford, Cardinal Spellman, Henry Luce and so many others.
In October 1963, JFK had just signalled this reversal, to Europe, when he
published National Security Action Memorandum #263 saying...among other
things...that he was taking 1000 troops home from Vietnam by Christmas 1963
and ALL AMERICANS out of Vietnam by the end of 1965. That cost him his life.
JFK came to that "Pro)Europe" conclusion in the Summer of 1963 and sent Gen
Krulak to Vietnam for advance work. Kurlak and I (with others) wrote that
long "Taylor)McNamara" Report of their "Visit to Vietnam" (obviously they did
not write, illustrate and bind it as they traveled). Krulak got his
information daily in the White House. We simply wrote it. That led to NSAM
#263. This same Trip Report is Document #142 and appears on page 751 to 766
of Vol II of the Gravel Edition of the Pentagon Papers. NSAM #263 appears on
pages 769)770 (It makes the Report official).
This major Report and NSAM indicated an enormous shift in the orientation of
U.S. Foreign Policy from Asia back to Europe. JFK was much more
Europe*oriented, as was his father, than pro)Asia. This position was anathema
to the Asia)born Luces, etc.
There is the story from an insider. I sat in the same office with Lansdale,
(OSO of OSD) for years. I listened to him in Manila and read his flurry of
notes from 1952 to 1964. I know all this stuff, and much more. I could write
ten books. I send this to you because I believe you are one of the most
sincere of the "true researchers." You may do with it as you please. I know
you will do it right. I may give copies of this to certain other people of
our persuasion. (Years ago I told this to Mae Brussell on the promise she
would hold it. She did.
Now you can see why I have always said that identification of the "Tramps" was
unnecessary, i.e. they are actors. The first time I saw that picture I saw
the man I knew and I realized why he was there. He caused the political world
to spin on its axis. Now, back to recuperating.

THE SILENT WAR
We are engaged in a silent war. Those waging this brutal conflict have
not the decency to inform their victims ))) who include ourselves and
almost everyone we know. Their standard bearers include George Bush and
David Rockefeller. As the high priced professional liars in the mass
media assure us all is well, the common people of the world are being
crushed ))) like foot soldiers over run by a panzer division.
And yet, the only real power of these perpetrators derives only from this
force fed ignorance. Apart from the power to keep us fighting each
other, the Monopolists have no power. If a critical mass of people can
learn the information contained herein, and what is more important, the
sources of this information, a global reign of terror will end.
