It looked like it could be just that back in 1967. It was a revelation of an American assassination effort against a foreign leader. Beyond that it purportedly provided proof that President Kennedy had been killed by a Communist conspiracy. The potential consequences for the Johnson Administration, the Democratic party and the CIA were immense. What made the whole thing even more shocking was that the news was coming from an extremely credible source, an individual that both the FBI and CIA knew had personally been at the center of a series of CIA assassination efforts over some three years and he had been working directly with the CIA officer assigned to establish an Executive Action program capable of covertly eliminating foreign leaders.
It should have generated immense media attention and investigations by the Justice Department, perhaps the establishment of a new Presidential inquiry. What did happen is fascinating and may in itself tell us something very important about the conspiracy and the individuals that were involved in the murder of President Kennedy.
