Research in Progress

Well it is summer time and my teaching load is down and I am busy at work with my ongoing research of the Kennedy Assassination as well as my old project US Covert Intervention in Iraq, 1958-1963.

I need to look at a few more books before I give the post giving all the names of those involved in the assassination of Kennedy. I can tell you that I now believe that Lyndon Baines Johnson had more than just foreknowledge of the plot, but that he co-conspired with disaffected CIA. Barr McClellan was an attorney that worked in the law firm that handled all of Johnson's business and he has testified that a top attorney in the firm admitted organzing the assassination of Kennedy. His book was not in my prviously posted bibliography so here is the entry:

McClellan, Barr. Blood, Money & Power: How LBJ Killed JFK. New York: Hannover House, 2003.

This witness combined with the fingerprint of Mac Wallace (Johnson's hatchett man) on one of the boxes from the Book Depository and the testimony of Loy Factor in Glen Sample's book The Men on the Sixth Floor, and Madelline Brown's, Jack Ruby's, and E. Howard Hunt's testimony all provide primary source evidence for the science of history that Lyndon Johnson ordered the death of John F. Kennedy. Details later.

Regarding CIA intervention in Iraq from 1958 to 1963, I have made dozens of Freedom of Information requests with the CIA and the National Archives. I am still waiting for a reply on most of them, but I did get back some early fruit. The Komer to Kennedy Memo from Feb. 8, 1963 has been fully declassified as of this May 2010. It did say, as many of us reasoned, "CIA had." This is further proof that the CIA provided material support for the 1963 Coup in Iraq that put Saddam Hussein's Ba'ath Party in power for the first time. If anyone wants to see the PDF file showing both the previous classification and the newly declassified document click this link:

I have most of the post with the names of the Kennedy Assassination conspirators written. As I said, I just need to look at a few more books, write a little more and then I will post it.

I can't wait to see the names you come up with. Hopefully as part of your research you have read FAREWELL AMERICAN written by French intelligence in 1968 and the TORBITT DOCUMENT (which I find valuable as it summarizes the evidence contained in the Parish of New Orleans records of District Attorney Jim Garrison's Grand Jury investigation - I don't know of anywhere else this material is publicly available). I also hope there are enough people alive who know enough about the sixties recognize the co-conspirators names (and the names of the groups and companies they represent). I first became interested in the JFK assassination owing to being in the wrong place in the wrong time. I write about this in my (not very erudite memoir) THE MOST REVOLUTIONARY ACT: MEMOIR OF AN AMERICAN REFUGEE (I currently live in exile in New Zealand).

I am glad to make your acquaintance. I have not heard of any of the three documents you mentioned, although I am quite familiar with the Garrison case and its findings.

The problem with only knowing about the Garrison case and all the zillion facts about Lee Harvey Oswald and New Orleans is that it is just on the periphery of the plot; David Ferrie did not even make it to Dealy Plaza!

A lot of anti-communist types and CIA affiliates hated Kennedy and plotted against him, but what I am looking for is, who was actually successful in pulling it off? Who was there? Who told the Secret Service and Military Intelligence to stand down? Who changed the route? Who pointed the whole world to Lee Harvey Oswald? Who organized the shooting teams and who was on the teams?

I want to present names only with historical precision, so it is taking time just to review the many works, confessions, and rabbit trails that are already extant.

After I make my initial post I am going to begin going after documents for this like I do for my Iraq project. I will assail the CIA and FBI with FOIA.

People like you who give me new sources to look at are crucial to my progress. Thank you for these titles. I will get them. I am most curious to hear your story exile: the whys and wherefores.

Ms Bramhall?

I am unable to find your book. What is your name? You don't look like a Stuart when I see the big view of your picture. :)

I ordered JFK: Farewell America and I would like to get your book too. Can you help?

Hey Mr. Zeman, I'm in your class at Citrus, I've been studying the Kennedy Assasination 10 years now.Do you recommend any books on the subject? Have you read David Talbots book "Brothers The hidden History of The Kennedy Years"? or "Family of Secrets" by Russ Baker? Real Interesting. See you in Class!

David Ferrie was Goose hunting on November November 22, 1963. NO wait it was Ice Skating.

Too bad the class does not cover this time period.

Dr. Anonymous,

I have not read those books. I will get them and take a look at them. Identify yourself sometime after class. I would love to chat with you. If you would like, bring it up in class. You will see that I allow wide latitude for free wheeling discussions. The Lincoln Assassination was also a conspriracy to change the government, so it seems obvious that the Kennedy Assassination is relevant to "History of the United States Until 1877."
