THE UNSPOKEN TRUTH: ISRAEL'S CENTRAL ROLE
IN THE JFK ASSASSINATION
Where in the world could anyone come up
with the idea that Israel's Mossad had a hand in the assassination
of John F. Kennedy? Well, there's more to the story than meets
the eye. All of the information which, taken together, proves
this contention has already been committed to print. This book,
Final Judgment, brings all of these facts together for the first
time in a frightening scenario that makes sense.
Considering all of the theories about
the assassination of John F. Kennedy that have been circulating
for years, how could anyone ever suggest that Israel's Mossad
This was the reaction of more than a few
people when apprised of the thesis presented in the pages of this
book. Yet, I believe, that when you read this volume you will
reach the same conclusion: that Israel and its spy agency, the
Mossad, did indeed play a critical role in the JFK assassination
conspiracy and its cover-up. The evidence, you shall see, is there.
It was several years ago that I first
stumbled upon a hint that this was indeed the case. I came across
a strange reference in the pages of a controversial work about
the JFK assassination which alleged that rogue CIA operatives
had been behind the president's murder, A. J. Weberman and Michael
Canfield's Coup d'Etat in America, first published in 1975. The
reference, simple as it was, appearing on page 41, read as follows:
"After the assassination, an informer
for the Secret Service and the FBI who had infiltrated a Cuban
exile group and was in the process of selling them machine guns,
reported that on November 21, 1963 he was told, 'We now have plenty
of money-our new backers are the Jews-as soon as they take care
of JFK.' This man had furnished reliable information in the past."
I barely noticed the reference, but it
did intrigue me. Who did this source mean when he referred to
"the Jews"? This was the question I needed to answer.
My immediate conclusion was this: the source meant Jewish gangsters-such
as Meyer Lansky-who had a stake in reviving their Cuban gambling
interests that they lost when Fidel Castro came to power. This
was the logical answer.
Frankly, I laid the reference aside. It
was just one lone remark out of perhaps millions of words written
about the JFK assassination. It was nearly a year that went by
before I came across the quotation again-while re-reading the
same book. I pondered the quote for a moment, thinking, "This
However, I once again cast those thoughts
aside. I had already reached my own conclusions about the JFK
assassination long before: The CIA was primarily responsible,
working hand-in-hand with certain elements in "the Mafia"
and also in the anti-Castro Cuban movement.
However, in the subsequent year that followed,
I began to stumble across some interesting information.
In David Scheim's book, Contract on America,
which contends that "the Mafia" was solely responsible
for the JFK assassination, I saw a variation of the same quote
referenced in the Weberman and Canfield book.
However, Scheim's rendition of the quote
had deleted the reference to the alleged Jewish backers of the
Cuban plotters. I began to think that there might be something
more to the story after all, whatever the accuracy of the story
allegedly told to the federal authorities.
THE LANSKY CONNECTION
It was around this time that I learned
that a new biography of organized crime figure Meyer Lansky had
been released. It was entitled Little Man:
Meyer Lansky and the Gangster Life. The
book-prepared in cooperation with Lansky's family-was little more
than a puff piece for the deceased thug. Gossipy, full of inside
information, and even entertaining at times, the book still somehow
seemed to be missing a lot.
It was then that I returned to my library
and pulled a book off the shelf that I hadn't re-read in perhaps
fifteen years. It was Hank Messick's biography of Lansky. Re-reading
this important book I began to see that Meyer Lansky was not just
another gangster. He was "the chairman of the board"
of organized crime.
All of the Mafia figures that had been
repeatedly implicated in the JFK assassination were, in fact,
Lansky's front-men-his subordinates, his underlings. In short,
if "the Mafia" had a hand in the killing of JFK, then
Lansky had to have been one of the key players.
Yet, as I quickly began to see in reviewing
many of the works which allege that "The Mafia Killed JFK,"
Lansky's preeminent role was being ignored or otherwise under-played.
I was aware of Lansky's close ties to
Israel. After all, Lansky fled to Israel when the heat was on
in the United States. But how deeply did the Lansky-Israeli connection
My research into that question began to
turn up some interesting facts relating to an Israeli connection
to the assassination 2f John F. Kennedy.
THE ISRAELI CONNECTION
Why would Israel have an interest in participating
in the JFK assassination conspiracy? That was the burning question.
It was just about the time that I had
begun to take a second look at the Lansky connection to the Kennedy
assassination that several new works about the covert relationship
between the United States and Israel were released providing never-before
These books, cited extensively in Final
Judgment, made it all too clear that John F. Kennedy-before his
death-was in a pitched battle with Israel. In fact, Kennedy was
This was something that long-time JFK
assassination researchers had no reason to know about. Much of
the material had long been classified. It was a secret-a deep,
Some of JFK's communications with then-Israeli
Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion are still classified. Not even
top-level intelligence officials with special security clearance
have been allowed access to these potentially explosive documents.
This discovery made me realize that there
was a lot more to the Kennedy relationship with Israel and a lot
more about the JFK assassination than we had ever been told.
ISRAEL, LANSKY & THE CIA
The long and close relationship between
Israel and JFK's foes at the CIA is something which is becoming
more and more known to the general public. JFK's own war with
the CIA is common knowledge.
At the time of the president's assassination,
however, the depth and breadth of the CIA's relationship with
Israel's Mossad, however, was not so commonly known.
What's more, as I began to discover, Israel's
allies in the Lansky Syndicate had much deeper relations with
the CIA than most researchers have realized.
And while the stories of CIA-Organized
Crime assassination plots against Castro have been told time and
again, the evidence I began to discover told an even bigger story.
The pieces of the puzzle were all there.
They simply needed to be put together. As the research continued,
I repeatedly found myself stumbling upon new facts and information
that continued to verify what was initially in my mind just a
theory, but which I now believe to be the truth.
THE PERMINDEX CONNECTION
It is the little-discussed Permindex connection
to the JFK assassination which is the tie that binds-the final
proof that Israel's Mossad was at the center of the assassination
In the Permindex connection we find all
of the critical elements which tie Israel's Mossad, the CIA and
organized crime together in close-knit intrigue linked directly
to the murder of President Kennedy.
Although researchers, over the years,
have devoted much time and energy to pursuing a wide variety of
questions relating to the JFK assassination controversy (focusing
on controversies that will never be resolved) they have steered
clear of the Permindex connection.
Those who have made any reference to Permindex
have described it as some sort of "neo-Nazi" entity-even
a remnant of Hitler's SS-but, as we shall see, nothing could be
further from the truth.
To understand the forces behind the Permindex
connection, which we examine in detail in this volume, is to understand
the answer to the biggest mystery of this century: the question
of who killed John F. Kennedy.
Just before I began the book I mentioned
my theory to a rather well-known former United States congressman.
He surprised me when he said, "I think you are on to something.
I've believed for years that the Mossad was involved in the Kennedy
assassination, but I never really took the time to look into it.
I'm glad you're doing it, though. It will be an important book.
It's a book I would have liked to have written myself."
Then, just after I finished the book,
I sent a copy of the manuscript to another former U.S. congressman,
thinking that he might have some interest in the subject. His
response was perhaps a bit astonishing.
After the former congressman received
the manuscript he wrote me a surprising letter in which he said,
"I will tell you this. A retired Western European diplomat
and intelligence officer with whom I've been in correspondence
(and who has had disastrous experiences with Israel and the Mossad)
has been urging me for the last four years to write the book that
you have written."
He passed the manuscript on to the Frenchman
who in turn wrote me a fascinating letter providing further information
confirming my thesis.
ONE COMPLETE PICTURE
The fruits of my labor appear in this
book. I owe so much to all of those JFK assassination researchers
who made this book possible. Their pioneering efforts laid the
foundation for the construction of a framework which I firmly
believe proves Mossad complicity in the assassination of John
All of those who sought the truth-and
sometimes risked their reputations (and even perhaps their lives)
doing it-cleared the way for a final judgment:
Israel was the driving force behind the
conspiracy that resulted in the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
It is the Israeli connection that pulls all of the pieces of the
puzzle together into one complete picture. The role of 'j Israel
in the JFK assassination is, indeed, the until-now "missing
A WHO'S WHO OF THE JFK ASSASSINATION CONSPIRACY AND COVER-UP
While the following selection of names
in this special "who's who" is by no means complete,
it does provide the reader of Final Judgment with a brief overview
of the facts relating to the involvement of the individuals in
question with the circumstances surrounding not only the JFK assassination
itself, but also the efforts to not only uncover the truth about
the assassination-and also to bury it.
Following each name and description are
references to the particular chapters in Final Judgment where
details about that individual appear in pertinent part. The inclusion
of any name in particular is by no means intended to suggest that
the individual-unless specifically stated-had foreknowledge that
the murder of President Kennedy was being planned.
As we note in these pages, there were
many people who were brought into the JFK assassination conspiracy
and the subsequent cover-up who had no idea of the actual role
that they were playing.
The following "who's who"-if
read in this context-provides the reader a quick glance at the
key individuals who ultimately prove central to a complete understanding
of the entirety of the conspiracy that resulted in the assassination
of President Kennedy.
Clay Shaw - If New Orleans District Attorney
Jim Garrison had been permitted to carry out an unimpeded investigation
and prosecution of Shaw, a CIA contract operative and a former
director of the International Trade Mart in New Orleans implicated
in involvement with Lee Harvey Oswald, David Ferrie, Guy Banister
and other figures central to the JFK assassination conspiracy,
Garrison would have divined Shaw's connections - through a shadowy
corporation known as Permindex - to not only the Israeli Mossad,
but also the international crime syndicate of Israeli loyalist
Louis M. Bloomfield - Based in Montreal,
Bloomfield was a long-time intelligence operative and a front
man for the powerful Bronfman family interests. The Bronfmans
were not only key international backers of Israel but also long-time
figures in the Lansky crime syndicate. Bloomfield, one of the
foremost figures in the Israeli lobby in Canada and one of Israel's
leading international operatives, not only served as the chief
shareholder in the Permindex Corporation on whose board of directors
Clay Shaw served, but also had intimate ties to American intelligence.
Tibor Rosenbaum - One of the "godfathers"
of the state of Israel and the first director for finance and
supply for Israel's intelligence agency, the Mossad, Rosenbaum
was a prime financial angel behind the Permindex corporation.
His Swiss banking concern, the Banque De Credit International,
also served as the chief European money laundry or the global
crime syndicate of Miami-based crime chief Meyer Lansky.
John King - A close business associate
of Tibor Rosenbaum's protégé and sometime front
man, Bernard Cornfeld, King showed up in New Orleans in the early
stages of Jim Garrison's investigation-before Clay Shaw's name
had come up-and sought to persuade Garrison (through a bribery
attempt) to give up the inquiry. Fortunately he failed in his
THE MOSSAD CONNECTION
David Ben-Gurion - Prime Minister of Israel;
resigned his post in disgust with JFK's stance toward Israel.
in April of 1963; Said JFK's position threatened Israel's very
Yitzhak Shamir - A long-time Mossad officer
(based largely at the Mossad's chief European office in Paris),
Shamir headed the Mossad's assassination squad at the time of
the JFK assassination. A former French intelligence officer has
charged that Shamir himself arranged the hiring of JFK's actual
assassins through a close ally in French intelligence.
Menachem Begin - In 1963, Begin (later
prime minister of Israel) was a roving Israeli diplomat; prior
to JFK's assassination he was overheard conspiring with Meyer
Lansky's California henchman, Mickey Cohen, in a conversation
that suggested hostile intentions by Israel against the American
Luis Kutner - Although known largely as
a "mob lawyer," (who was long and closely associated
with Jack Ruby, a sometime-client) Kutner also doubled as an international
intelligence operative and functioned as an advisor to an ad hoc
pro-Israel lobby group in the United States.
A. L. Botnick - Head of the New Orleans
office of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) of B'nai B'rith, an
intelligence and propaganda arm for Israel's Mossad; a close associate
of New Orleans-based CIA contract operative Guy Banister who helped
create Lee Harvey Oswald's preassassination profile as a "pro-Castro"
agitator. Evidence suggests that Banister's manipulation of Oswald
may have been carried out under the guise of an ADL "fact-finding"
Arnon Milchan - Israel's biggest arms
dealer, Milchan was "executive producer" (i.e. chief
financial angel) of Oliver Stone's Hollywood fantasy about the
JFK assassination-a fact which may explain Stone's aversion to
exploring the Israeli connection to the affair.
Maurice Tempeisman - The international
diamond merchant and Mossad operative who became the lover of
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and used his connections to double-perhaps
triple-her substantial fortune, thereby co-opting the Kennedy
THE CIA CONNECTION
Rudolph Hecht - An owner of the CIA-linked
Standard Fruit concern, Hecht was a prominent figure in the New
Orleans Jewish community and as chairman of the board of directors
of the International Trade Mart was Permindex board member Clay
Shaw's primary sponsor.
James Jesus Angleton - Angleton, the CIA's
long-time chief of counterintelligence, was the CIA's primary
high-level conspirator in the murder of President Kennedy and
the subsequent cover-up. Angleton, who had been co-opted by and
was totally loyal to the Israeli Mossad, played a major role in
the effort to frame Lee Harvey Oswald. Final Judgment is the first
JFK assassination study to delve into Angleton's role in the conspiracy.
David Atlee Phillips - A long-time high-level
CIA official, Phillips was the CIA station chief in Mexico City
at the time a strange effort was underway to implicate Lee Harvey
Oswald as a Soviet KGB collaborator. If anyone in the CIA knew
the truth about Oswald, it was Phillips. He confessed publicly
that the story about Oswald being in Mexico City was not precisely
what the CIA had long claimed.
E. Howard Hunt - Long-time CIA officer
and liaison to the anti-Castro Cuban exiles. Testimony by ex-CIA
contract operative Marita Lorenz placed Hunt in Dallas, Texas
the day before the president's assassination. The full truth about
Hunt's actual involvement in the affair may never be known, but
there is no question that Hunt was deeply involved in the intrigue
surrounding the president's murder. Evidence does indeed indicate
that there was a conscious effort to frame Hunt for involvement
in the crime.
Guy Banister -The former FBI agent-turned-CIA
contract operative whose New Orleans office was a central point
for international intrigue involving the CIA, the anti-Castro
Cuban exiles and the anti-DeGaulle forces in the French Secret
Army Organization (OAS). Under Banister's direction, Lee Harvey
Oswald established a public profile for himself as a "pro-Castro"
agitator in the streets of New Orleans.
David Ferrie - An enigmatic adventurer
and CIA contract operative, Ferrie was closely involved with Lee
Harvey Oswald during Oswald's stay in New Orleans in the summer
of 1963, working alongside Oswald out of Banister's headquarters.
The investigation of Ferrie by New Orleans District Attorney Jim
Garrison ultimately led to Garrison's discovery of Permindex board
member Clay Shaw's ties to both Ferrie and Oswald.
Marita Lorenz - A former CIA contract
operative, she testified under oath that one day prior to the
assassination of President Kennedy she arrived in Dallas in an
armed caravan of CIA-backed Cuban exiles who were met by not only
Jack Ruby, who later killed Lee Harvey Oswald, but also CIA official
E. Howard Hunt.
Guillermo & Ignacio Novo - Two brothers,
veterans of the CIA-backed Cuban exile wars against Fidel Castro.
According to Marita Lorenz, the Novo brothers were part of the
armed caravan that arrived in Dallas one day before the assassination
of President Kennedy. Many years after Dallas, the Novos were
later convicted of participating in the murder of a Chilean dissident
in collaboration with international adventurer Michael Townley
who himself had ties to high-level figures implicated in the JFK
John Tower - In 1963 Tower was a newly-elected
Republican U.S. Senator from Texas with close ties to the CIA.
Shortly after the assassination he told associates of his own
inside knowledge of the bizarre story of what really happened
in Dealey Plaza. The story told by Tower suggests strongly that
there were many unseen forces at work, manipulating many of the
key players in the JFK assassination conspiracy. It was not until
the release of Final Judgment that Tower's name was ever connected
to the mystery surrounding the JFK assassination.
Victor Marchetti - A high-ranking CIA
official who left the agency in disgust, Marchetti later made
a career writing about the CIA. In a 1978 article he charged that
the CIA was about to frame its long-time operative, E. Howard
Hunt, with involvement in the JFK assassination. A libel suit
resulting as a consequence of Marchetti's article resulted in
a climactic finding by a jury that the CIA had been involved in
the assassination of the president.
Robin Moore - A journalist with long-standing
close ties to the CIA, Moore co-authored former CIA man Hugh McDonald's
book, LBJ and the JFK Conspiracy which promoted James Jesus Angleton's
false claim that the KGB was behind the president's murder-another
of the disinformation stories that emerged following the assassination.
THE LANSKY SYNDICATE
Meyer Lansky - Chief executive officer
and de facto "treasurer" of the international crime
syndicate; active in gun-running on behalf of the Israeli underground;
collaborated closely with American intelligence on a number of
fronts; later settled in Israel. Researchers who have claimed
that "the Mafia Killed JFK" have pointedly refused to
acknowledge Lansky's preeminent positioning in the underworld.
Carlos Marcello - The head of the Mafia
in New Orleans, Marcello owed his status to Meyer Lansky who was
his chief sponsor in the crime syndicate. Marcello could not have
orchestrated the JFK assassination-as some suggest-without Lansky's
Seymour Weiss - Meyer Lansky's chief bagman
and liaison with the political establishment in Louisiana, he
later served as a director of the CIA-linked Standard Fruit company
and may actually have been a high-ranking CIA contract operative
in New Orleans at the time of the JFK assassination.
Sam Giancana - The Mafia boss of Chicago,
Giancana was a player in the CIA-Mafia plots against Castro; later
murdered, probably at the behest of Santo Trafficante, Jr. His
family says that Giancana admitted having been involved in the
planning of the JFK assassination.
Santo Trafficante, Jr. - Although best
known as the head of the Mafia in Tampa, Trafficante actually
functioned as Meyer Lansky's chief lieutenant in the crime syndicate
and as Lansky's liaison with the CIA in the Castro assassination
Johnny Rosselli - A roving "ambassador"
for the Mafia, Rosselli was the primary conduit between the CIA
and the mob in the plots against Fidel Castro; may have arranged
the murder of Sam Giancana for Trafficante and was later murdered
Mickey Cohen - Meyer Lansky's West Coast
henchman; Jack Ruby's role model and a gun-runner for the Israeli
underground, Cohen collaborated closely with Israeli diplomat
Menachem Begin prior to the JFK assassination;. Cohen arranged
for John F. Kennedy to meet actress Marilyn Monroe who was assigned
the task of finding out JFK's private views and intentions toward
Jack Ruby - A long-time functionary for
the Lansky syndicate, Ruby was the Lansky connection man in Dallas
and also engaged in CIA-linked gunrunning to the anti-Castro Cuban
exiles. Evidence suggests there is more to Ruby's sudden "death"
than meets the eye.
Jim Braden - A veteran personal courier
for Meyer Lansky, Braden was almost assuredly in contact in Dallas
with Jack Ruby prior to the JFK assassination. He was briefly
detained in Dealey Plaza minutes after the president's murder,
but those JFK assassination researchers who have mentioned Braden
prefer to cast him as a "Mafia" figure rather than as
Lansky's man on the scene in Dallas.
Al Gruber - A henchman of Meyer Lansky's
West Coast operative, Mickey Cohen, Gruber and Ruby spoke by telephone
just shortly before Ruby killed Lee Harvey Oswald. It is believed
that Gruber gave Ruby the contract on Oswald on behalf of his
THE FRENCH CONNECTION
Charles DeGaulle - Repeatedly targeted
for assassination by Israeli-allied forces in French intelligence
and in the Secret Army Organization (OAS) who were angry that
DeGaulle had granted independence to Arab Algeria. The Mossad-sponsored
Permindex operation that also had a hand in the murder of JFK,
laundered money used in the assassination attempts on DeGaulle.
Georges deLannurien - High ranking official
in the SDECE, the French intelligence agency; pinpointed by a
former French intelligence officer as the individual who (at the
best of Mossad assassinations chief Yitzhak Shamir) contracted
the hit team who killed JFK in Dallas.
Michael Mertz - A former French SDECE
officer and the Paris connection for the Lansky-Trafficante heroin
syndicate; alleged to have been one of the actual gunmen in Dallas
on November 22, 1963. Said by some to be the legendary CIA contract
Jean Soutre - A liaison for the French
OAS with the CIA's E. Howard Hunt, Soutre maintained contact with
Guy Banister's CIA- and mob-linked gun-running headquarters in
New Orleans. Soutre may have been in Dallas at the time of the
JFK assassination. There is evidence linking Soutre to James Jesus
Angleton's intrigue inside the CIA that affected French intelligence
in a dramatic way.
Thomas Eli Davis III - A world-traveling
mercenary with apparent links to both Jack Ruby and Lee Harvey
Oswald, Davis was taken into custody by the Algerian government
for his subversive activities alongside Israeli agents in supplying
weapons to the French OAS just prior to the JFK assassination.
It is said that CIA operative QJJWIN (possibly Michael Mertz,
one of the reputed assassins of President Kennedy) helped secure
Davis's release from prison.
Geoffrey Bocca - A former propagandist
for the OAS, Bocca later co-authored former CIA contract agent
Hugh McDonald's book, Appointment in Dallas, which pointed the
blame for the JFK assassination away from those who were actually
responsible-the first of two suspect books put out by McDonald.
Christian David - A French Corsican criminal
associated with reputed JFK assassin Michael Mertz, David has
claimed knowledge of a French hit team involved in the JFK assassination.
David himself was the chief suspect in the murder of a Moroccan
dissident, Mehdi Ben-Barka, whose killing was orchestrated by
the Israeli Mossad through anti-DeGaulle forces in French intelligence.
Mark Lane - Retained by Lee Harvey Oswald's
mother to represent her son's interests before the Warren Commission,
Lane's book Rush to Judgment was the first major critique of the
Warren Commission Report. In a libel suit filed against The Spotlight
newspaper by former CIA operative E. Howard Hunt, Lane proved
to the satisfaction of a jury that the CIA had indeed been involved
in the JFK assassination. His best-selling book Plausible Denial
outlined the circumstances of that libel suit and its ultimate
Gary Wean - A former detective on the
Hollywood beat of the Los Angeles Police Department, Wean discovered
how Meyer Lansky's West Coast henchman, Mickey Cohen, was conspiring
against John F. Kennedy on behalf of the Israelis. In a meeting
with the former sheriff of Dallas County, Bill Decker, Wean learned
a portion of the truth about what really happened in Dallas.
Edgar & Edith Stern - Close friends
of Clay Shaw, major financial backers of the pro-Israel Anti-Defamation
League (ADL) of B'nai B'rith, and owners of the WDSU media empire
in New Orleans that not only played a major role in giving vast
publicity to Lee Harvey Oswald's preassassination profile as a
"pro-Castro agitator" but later sought to undermine
Jim Garrison's investigation of Clay Shaw.
Johann Rush - As a young WDSU cameraman,
Rush was on the scene to record Oswald's "pro-Castro"
activities. He emerged-many years later-as the brains behind a
"computer-enhanced" version of the famous Zapruder film
of the JFK assassination that author Gerald Posner cited as "proof'
that Oswald acted alone in the president's murder.
Drew Pearson - Accused by his own mother-in-law
of being a "mouthpiece" for the pro-Israel ADL, Pearson
had close ties to not only the Israeli lobby, but also the CIA
and to President Lyndon Johnson and his cronies. It was Pearson
who floated an unlikely story that Fidel Castro was behind the
JFK assassination and who also played a major influence in shaping
Earl Warren's perceptions of the tragedy.
Jack Anderson - As protégé
of Drew Pearson, Jack Anderson likewise had strange connections
that might have biased his own reportage on the JFK affair. Since
1963 Anderson has promoted a number of conflicting versions about
"who really killed JFK" ranging from "the Mafia"
to Fidel Castro or a combination of both.
Jack Newfield - A liberal columnist and
some-time JFK assassination buff, Newfield has been a likewise
long-standing devotee of Israel. He made a big splash with a highly
fantastic story that missing Teamster boss Jimmy Hoffa had "ordered"
two Mafia figures to arrange the killing of President Kennedy.
Not surprisingly, Newfield's ridiculous story was given wide play
in the Establishment media.
THEORISTS AND/OR PROPAGANDISTS?
Oliver Stone - His Hollywood extravaganza,
JFK, gave the public a fullblown, full-color, gory-in-every-detail
conspiracy theory on the JFK assassination. Yet, Stone's presentation
of the conspiracy was far from complete and failed to reach any
firm conclusions. He deliberately suppressed the "French
connection" which, in turn, was the long-hidden Israeli connection.
Not only was Stone's chief financial backer Israel's leading arms
dealer but also his film distribution company had its origins
in the Lansky crime syndicate. What's more, one of the chief shareholders
in the film company was none other than Bernard Cornfeld, long-time
associate of Permindex figure Tibor Rosenbaum
Frank Mankiewicz - This former publicist
for the Israeli Mossad-linked Anti-Defamation League had a peculiar
part in the events that took place prior to the murder of Robert
F. Kennedy. Then when Oliver Stone began promoting his film JFK,
Mankiewicz popped up as his key public relations man.
Anthony Summers - Author of one book hinting
that the Kennedy family were responsible for the death-maybe the
murder-of actress Marilyn Monroe, Summers wrote another book on
the JFK conspiracy. In neither book did Summers reveal explosive
information (of which he was aware) that could have helped point
the direction of those same forces which played a part in both
Robert Morrow - A former CIA contract
operative who played a major role in activities on the periphery
of the JFK assassination conspiracy, Morrow's book on his experiences
is rife with detail, yet suspect in the eyes of many who had looked
into his claims. Morrow's book absolves the key CIA conspirator,
James J. Angleton, of involvement in the JFK conspiracy and portrays
him as being "out of the loop" when, in fact, precisely
the opposite was true. Is it a coincidence that Morrow's book
publisher is an American affiliate of an Israeli publishing company?
G. Robert Blakey - An unlikely choice
to serve as director of the House Select Committee on Assassinations,
Blakey had, just two years previously, served as a character witness
for a long-time close associate of crime boss Meyer Lansky. When
it came time to point the blame in the JFK assassination, Blakey
targeted Lansky's protégé, New Orleans Mafia boss,
Carlos Marcello, but looked no further. Blakey, likewise, found
no role by the CIA-or any other intelligence agency-in the JFK
David Scheim - The author of a book that
pins the murder of President Kennedy on "the Mafia,"
Scheim refuses to acknowledge Permindex board member Clay Shaw's
intelligence connections and paints Israeli loyalist Meyer Lansky
as a low-level syndicate figure with no influence of substance.
Scheim's book was published by the American front for an Israeli
Richard Billings - A journalist with close
ties to the CIA, Billings played a major role in the media's campaign
to undermine New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison's investigation
of Clay Shaw. Billings emerged as the prime promoter of the outlandish
theory that Garrison was a Mafia front man trying to take the
focus off the Mafia and direct the attention toward the intelligence
James DiEugenio - Although a deep admirer
of both John F. Kennedy and New Orleans District Attorney Jim
Garrison, DiEugenio has tread lightly when inquiring into the
ties between Clay Shaw and the Permindex operation with its multiple
links to the Israeli Mossad and the crime syndicate.
Peter Dale Scott - His years of in-depth
research on the JFK assassination have led him directly to the
doorstep of the CIA, the Mossad and the Lansky Crime Syndicate,
yet he has never been prepared to name names or point in the direction
of those very forces, preferring to sidestep the issue.
