RIP: Gerald McKnight, Historian Who Dismantled the Warren Commission

Breach of Trust
Brescj pf Trist

Gerald D. McKnight, historian and author one of the very best scholarly books about the assassination of President Kennedy, died Lawrence, Kansas, on 30th January, 2021.

McKnight, a tenured professor of history at Hood College in Maryland, was the author of Breach of Trust, which explained how the Warren Commission, which was supposed to investigate JFK’s assassination, failed to find the truth–and why.

My friend journalist and historian, David Talbot, said it best:

Ask Nancy Pelosi: Call for Congress to Reopen Assassination Probes 


The Truth and Reconciliation Committee needs your help. The Committee, consisting of 60 people (including the author) are calling on Congress to re-open the investigation of the four political assassinations in the 1960s: (JFK, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy.)

CLICK HERE to read the Joint Statement.

CLICK HERE for Calls to Action.

“The consequences still haunt our nation,” says Adam Walinsky, former speechwriter for RFK.

The Committee needs you to sign a petition telling Nancy Pelosi to act.

The joint statement calls for Congress to establish firm oversight on the release of all government documents related to the Kennedy presidency and assassination, as mandated by the JFK Records Collection Act of 1992. This public transparency law has been routinely defied by the CIA and other federal agencies. The Trump White House has allowed the CIA to continue its defiance of the law, even though the JFK Records Act called for the full release of relevant documents in 2017

The Dulles ascendancy: the rise of a secret government 

Allen’s ascendency brought furtive characters, such as gun-toting William Harvey and cadaverous James Jesus Angelton, into a powerful global apparatus. Cold War ideology brooked no nationalist aspirations in any country wishing to control domestic politics and natural resources. A post-colonial era was emerging. But democratically elected nationalist leaders such as Mohammad Mossadegh in Iran and Jacobo Arbenz in Guatemala were conveniently portrayed as communists. In both countries, the CIA orchestrated coups ensuring protection for profitable corporate oil interests and the United Fruit Co. The agency contributed to the killing of Patrice Lumumba, the charismatic Congolese leader who only wanted self-government for his beleaguered people.

The CIA reviews David Talbot’s ‘Devil’s Chessboard’

While it may be uncomfortable for members of the Intelligence Community to read some of these chapters, Talbot has done detailed research in his effort to stitch together a story. It may appear to most readers as prosecutorial or adversarial in tone, but this perspective needs to be read and understood, even if it is only part of the story of the CIA in the 1950s.

Attacking Trump’s JFK theories, the New York Times neglects the facts

The disturbing shadow of John F. Kennedy’s assassination remains visible in American politics and journalism.

Witness the appearance of Roger Stone, adviser to Donald Trump, at a symposium on Lee Harvey Oswald in New Orleans, which drew the attention of the New York Times (and the pro-Clinton attack group Media Matters.)

“At a time when talk of having lost the country is very much in vogue, along with deep suspicions of a powerful and secretive elite, the symposium seemed remarkably of the moment,” writes reporter Campbell Robertson.

Of course, reporting on how fears of secret power are driving the discourse of the 2016 presidential election is an eminently timely and worthy subject. But reporting is what Robertson failed to do. Instead of learning the latest JFK facts, Times readers were served a birthday cake. Read more

Allen Dulles and the aftermath of JFK’s assassination.

Devil's ChessboardIn an wide-ranging interview with the German publication, Heise, David Talbot talks about his biography of CIA director Allen Dulles, “The Devil’s Chessboard,” which has just been published in German.

Q. Among the most incredible aspects of the Kennedy assassination is the fact that Dulles and his friends were called to investigate in the Warren Commission (1963), as well as Rockefeller Commission (1975). Was Dulles correct in his assessment, that the American people do not read?

Comment of the week

sh – April 5

From the review: “Talbot’s work is not without flaws—which I will detail later. But it is so far ahead of its competitors, and it deals with such a wide variety of important subjects, that I strongly recommend reading it. Most books I review in this field I read once, and then walk outside and throw them in the dumpster. Talbot’s book is Read more
