Orlando Bosch fled Cuba in the early 1960s and settled in Miami and began working with the CIA. For decades, he used the United States as a base for attacks on Cuban civilians and Cuban government targets. Read more

After Peter Janney’s very interesting observation about the CIA counterintelligence staff’s secret monitoring of New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, I think it is worth reprinting an item I wrote a year ago, “Garrison, Angleton, and the CIA.”
Over the years, the National Security Agency has made public 373 documents related to the assassination of President Kennedy, according to an NSA Web site called the JFK Documents Index.
On May 12 I reported bout the 3,600 JFK-related documents that remain out of public view.
On Monday, Politico picked up on the story and added a host of new details and comments.
Yesterday the story was picked by NOLA.com, the Web site of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
Two weeks ago, I posted a conspiracy theory survey asking readers to choose between the competing interpretations of two JFK Facts authors:. Robert Morrow, who posits a CIA-military plot from within the U.S. government, and Phil Shenon, who suggests Lee Oswald had pro-Castro Cuban accessories.
Which conspiracy theory won?
George de Mohrenschildt was a fascinating character who would fit into a comic but world-weary spy novel by Graham Greene. And he was good friends with Lee Oswald, the man who supposedly killed President Kennedy. De Morhenschildt doubted that his friend was the author of Kennedy’s death. At the end of his life, he was not afraid to say so. Read more

A reader writes:
“The Hollywood Reporter says James Franco will star as English teacher Jake Epping, who travels back in time to stop the assignation of President John F. Kennedy. The HULU miniseries, which will run a total of nine hours, is a joint project by [novelist Stephen] King and J.J. Abrams.”
King’s novel, 11/22/63, is based on the comforting but factually questionable notion that JFK was killed by one man alone for no reason. What King didn’t know when he wrote his book was how closely the CIA’s Counterintelligence Staff monitored Oswald in the four years before the tragedy of Dallas. Mistaking such facts for a conspiracy theory, King didn’t send Jack Epping, his time traveling hero, to Langley.
He might have intercepted Lee Harvey Oswald if he had. Declassified CIA records show clearly that Oswald, the future accused assassin, was well known to a host of senior CIA officers before JFK was gunned down in Dallas on November 22, 1963. (Even Times Magazine’s favorite JFK expert, the unemployed John McAdams, does not deny it.)
Dr. Robert McClelland stood at head of the gurney as the Parkland doctors attempted to save President Kennedy’s life. There is no more credible witness about the nature of JFK’s head wound.
The term was coined by Professor Peter Dale Scott of the University of California. With the help of DarkJournalist Daniel Liszt, Scott explains.
This photograph, courtesy of Duncan MacDonald, taken several minutes after President Kennedy was shot to death, shows a crowd of people, including newsman Robert MacNeil (later host of MacNeil-Lehrer Newshour), rushing to look at the railroad tracks and parking lot overlooking the motorcade route on November 22, 1963.
There is no disputing that they rushed to that area, known as “the grassy knoll,” because they thought one of the gunshots had come from there. No gunman was ever found there.
