I’m looking into a new JFK theory

I’m looking into these claims, which are ostensibly well-documented.

The never-before-revealed diaries of Douglas DeWitt Bazata, a decorated officer for the United States Office of Strategic Services — the forerunner of the Central Intelligence Agency — claim that his longtime close friend and fellow spy, René Alexander Dussaq, was a “primary organizer and plotter” of Kennedy’s assassination on Nov. 22, 1963.

I have never heard of Bazata or Dussaq. Anybody have relevant data?

Leave a comment or send me an email.



From a 5-Star Amazon review of Jefferson Morley’s CIA and JFK: The Secret Assassination Files,

“Can’t imagine a more meticulous take down of the CIA’s decades-long subterfuge surrounding the assassination.”

Jefferson Morley’s new ebook, CIA and JFK: The Secret Assassination Files, available on Amazon, provides the fullest account of the role of CIA operations officers in the events leading to the death of JFK, with a guide to what will be declassified in October 2017.

    I also didn´t know about Douglas DeWitt Bazata: http://www.nytimes.com/1999/08/22/world/douglas-dewitt-bazata-artist-and-oss-officer-dies-at-88.html

    The theory seems wierd, if I undestood well is CIA operatives on behalf of Castro regime whose assassinate JFK?

  2. Russ Tarby says:

    Having only read the WND and NY Post coverage of this new book, I think some of its rather convoluted story ring true, but I am doubtful that, as stated, Dallas was chosen as the kill zone as early as 1961.
    Too many studies of the assassination — and this one is apparently included — fail to acknowledge the extremely similar plots that have been documented earlier in November 1963 in both Chicago and Tampa.
    Dussaq and Bazata were certainly well-traveled and well-experienced Cold War spooks, but that alone does not verify the theory laid out in Wilcox’s book…

  3. Jim Rose says:

    This is either another Hitler Diaries or an astonishing new slice of the JFK Assassination saga. Try and find out which before I buy the book, Jeff. ?

    • Bill Banks says:

      First things first, somehow author failed to note where the documentation for this remarkable narrative has been archived. Historians of the period will be fascinated. Be it noted that rave Amazon reviews for Wilcox book on the Patton assassination seem inclined to blame Truman and Ike, the damn lefties!

      Patton’s driver certainly enjoyed a long life–48 years “after”–for an assistant assassin.


      Let’s see 5 shooters, each with a “CO”, plus “alternate” shooters, & etc. We have at least 20 persons directly involved being in Dallas before/after/during. Wonder how many others had direct knowledge? Were all the killers Castro sympathizers or “patriot” victims of a huge false flag operation?

      As for the mechanics of Oswald’s shooting, soliciting the opinions of Anthony Marsh, Robert Prudhomme, and Todd Wayne Vaughn might be of interest.

      “Oswald’s CO, according to Bazata’s diaries, secretly inserted the dummy cartridges but Oswald “instinctively” realized something was off after firing the first shot: the signal that the execution was under way. Oswald then let a “clip” fall from his rifle and inserted a real cartridge into the gun and fired a second, authentic shot before the CO wrestled it away.

    Bazata was not some Sunday morning quarterback. Here is his obit…


  5. Kennedy63 says:

    …another cold war spook; alas, another diary. Seems much to do about nothing but the projected sounds of the Christmas Cash-in. Liars and spooks and JFK, oh my!

  6. Greg Arious says:

    First thing I would do would be to find out if he was in AFIO.

  7. Arnaldo M. Fernandez says:

    Since this alleged plot involved LHO, as Wilcox said, how could Dussaq recruited him? Since Castro was seeking to talk with JFK, Dussaq should have taken the decision by himself, away from the command echelon of Cuban intelligence. Finally, how can he miss JFK more liberal political approach to the Third Wolrd?

  8. Cassandra says:

    I think we can assume that this is fraud since the author has also written a book claiming that the shroud of Turin is the real burial cloth of Jesus, after all scientific studies have declared it a fake made in the Middle Ages. Just one more attempt to blame the JFK assassination on Cuba and Castro. 53 years of solid scholarship by Mark Lane, Jim Garrison, Gaeton Fonzi, Jim DiEugenio, James Douglass, Gerald McKnight and David Talbot have concluded that the CIA, along with the help of the Mafia and the anti-Castro Cubans, was responsible for the assassination. Tony Veciana’s account of Oswald meeting with Veciana’s CIA handler, David Atlee Phillips, will be available on Amazon in a few weeks. Read that instead of the book by Wilcox; he offers no documentation to prove his case. Also, Fabien Escalante writes a very well documented account from the Cuban perspective. In my opinion, this case has already been solved by these careful scholars and if you want to know the truth, read the books by the authors I have mentioned above.

  9. Russ Tarby says:

    well said, Cassandra!
    other reliable authors whose research supports the theory you endorse include Peter Dale Scott, Larry Hancock, Bill Simpich and John Newman, among others…

    • Russ Tarby says:

      and as to confirming CIA complicity, you can’t do any better than read Jeff Morley’s recent book, “CIA and JFK: The Secret Assassination Files.”
      and please trust me…I’m not just saying that because he runs this website…his book is the real deal.

  10. Charles says:

    This new theory is not credible to me on its face. No rogue operator would undertake such an action with so many moving parts and that much risk of exposure unless they had some kind of official cover and thus Cuba is out of the picture. A double agent would need to rely on stealth and surprise.

    It reads like Howard Hunt style fan fiction to me.
