Abe Bolden speaks: they framed me for warning of a JFK plot

WhoWhatWhy has an exclusive interview with Abraham Bolden, the falsely convicted Secret Service agent who was pardoned by President Biden last week

Bolden explains what most people don’t know–that it was his professional response to JFK’s assassination that got him fired, framed, and falsely imprisoned.

“They don’t have the details of what occurred and what it had to do with the assassination of President Kennedy, how I was treated, the reason for my incarceration, the effort to declare me insane. Or the fact that I wrote a book that explained everything. That’s not before the public.”

Biden pardons Abraham Bolden, the only Secret Service agent who sought JFK accountability

The good news is that President Biden has pardoned Abraham Bolden, the first African-American Secret Service agent, who was falsely convicted on bribery charges in the 1960s.

The bad news is that initial reports emphasize Bolden was persecuted for the color of his skin, which is true enough but not the whole story.

Bolden was silenced because he raised questions about the causes of JFK’s assassination. For doing his job, he was targeted, defamed, and railroaded.

‘The centrality of Nixon and Helms to so many pivotal moments in history.’

Book List on Scorpion’s Dance:

“As the Senate Intelligence Committee prodded the CIA over all sorts of issues, including the JFK assassination and attempts on the life of Fidel Castro, Helms became increasingly defensive of his agency’s conduct over the years. The centrality of Nixon and Helms to so many pivotal moments in history makes Morley’s revelations about their sparring even more intriguing.”

ICYM: My friend, David Ferrie

Back in 2014, Rick Bauer shared his memories of David Ferrie, a man who has been the object of JFK conspiracy speculation for decades.

In Oliver Stone’s “JFK” Ferrie was memorably portrayed by Joe Pesci. In real life, Ferrie was fervently right-wing in his politics and hostile to President Kennedy. He knew Lee Oswald from a young age and he seemed to know of a plot against JFK in 1963, though his exact role in the events leading to the assassination are difficult to determine. He died suddenly in 1967.

Oliver Stone explains how JFK’s assassination changed U.S. foreign policy

In this excellent interview Abby Martin actually lets Oliver Stone explain why the JFK assassination story is important today. What emerges is Stone’s earnest and wide-ranging intellect, a likable quality in a man so often slandered and libeled by critics fearful of his conviction that President Kennedy was killed by his enemies. His interpretation is succinct and, for some, too disturbing to believed: “The president is removed for political reasons.”
