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.  If that sounds interesting, you can find the details at the presentation I made for the AARC – the link is below:

    I can’t, I don’t know how it works! How does one get that to play from ARRB?

    Interesting talk and interview. This is what should be getting aired on TV instead of the junk I’ve seen lately. Interesting view of Roselli as someone who wasn’t completely controlled by the mob. I agree that his loyalty likely went as much to his Cuban compatriots as to mobsters.

    • Thanks Jim….I’d love to make it more visible but I must be missing the media calls…grin. Then again it seems that anything that can’t be covered in a 2 min sound byte or an entertainment or sports scandal isn’t on the editorial list. Of course that really stands out only if you remember some of the investigative reporting we used to get a few decades ago, otherwise you would assume today’s reporting (limited to the span and depth of a twitter burst) is as good as it gets.
