The former PBS anchor told Diane Rehm he expects that someday somebody will talk about their role in a JFK assassination conspiracy. But as JFK researcher Larry Hancock reported here in January, somebody did talk.
His name was John Martino.
Martino is a credible witness, whose story has been corroborated by his wife and son. In the early 1960s, Martino worked as security consultant in Havana and Miami in the early 1960s, associating with organized crime figures, anti-Castro exiles, and CIA officers. After JFK was killed he was involved in efforts to blame the crime on Fidel Castro.
But the story he confided to friends and family later in life implicated JFK’s enemies on the right.
The fullest account of Martino’s story is found in in Anthony Summer’s re-issued book, “Not in Your Lifetime.”
