One more big, black mark on the CIA

And this one‘s downright treasonable. At least three operatives were present at the scene of Bobby Kennedy’s shooting–allegedly by a lone nut named Sirhan Sirhan.

Maybe the nut wasn’t so lone–or so nuts!–after all, suggests the evidence…

New video and photographic evidence that puts three senior CIA operatives at the scene of Robert Kennedy’s assassination has been brought to light.

The evidence was shown in a report by Shane O’Sullivan, broadcast on BBC Newsnight.

It reveals that the operatives and four unidentified associates were at the Ambassador Hotel, Los Angeles in the moments before and after the shooting on 5 June, 1968.

The CIA had no domestic jurisdiction and some of the officers were based in South-East Asia at the time, with no reason to be in Los Angeles.

Kennedy had just won the California Democratic primary on an anti-War ticket and was set to challenge Nixon for the White House when he was shot in a kitchen pantry.

A 24-year-old Palestinian, Sirhan Sirhan, was arrested as the lone assassin and notebooks at his house seemed to incriminate him.

However, even under hypnosis, he has never been able to remember the shooting and defence psychiatrists concluded he was in a trance at the time.

Witnesses placed Sirhan’s gun several feet in front of Kennedy but the autopsy showed the fatal shot came from one inch behind.

Dr Herbert Spiegel, a world authority on hypnosis at Columbia University, believes Sirhan may have been hypnotically programmed to act as a decoy for the real assassin.

There has long been abundant speculation that Sirhan was some kind of “Manchurian Candidate”, and this report appears to confirm it. Whether you believe the bit about the trance or not, you can hardly refute what a ballistics report says about the position of the shooter. Sirhan would have to have been a real Stretch Armstrong to shoot Kennedy!

The Pasadena Weekly’s in-depth look at Sirhan through the eyes of his brother Munir is an absolute must, BTW.

This sober BBC report, then, makes me certain that Sirhan was nothing but a convenient patsy, and the three CIA men–who were all in the wrong place at the wrong time–become automatic suspects. Especially light of this:

Three of these men have been positively identified as senior officers who worked together in 1963 at JMWAVE, the CIA’s Miami base for its Secret War on Castro.

David Morales was Chief of Operations and once told friends:

“I was in Dallas when we got the son of a bitch and I was in Los Angeles when we got the little bastard.”

Uh, I can only conclude that the “son of a bitch” was the great JFK, and the “little bastard” was his honorable, mafia-busting younger brother, Bobby–both of whom are deeply mourned to this day for the great potential for social change that was lost along with them.

This incredibly sordid quote from the inappropriately named agent Morales also leaves me in no doubt that Lee Harvey Oswald was likely not the only shooter in Dallas, if indeed he was a shooter at all–which I now doubt very much was the case. (Oswald’s biographical info alone casts severe doubt on such assertions.) I’m inclined to believe Oswald was indeed telling the truth when he famously protested that he was just a patsy for the CIA. He was certainly a very convincing case-in-point for the anticommunists to expound the evils of the left, if treated as a lone nut gunman, rather than a much more complex double defector (first from capitalism, then Soviet communism), which he in fact was. Suddenly, the Zapruder film doesn’t seem so inexplicable anymore, now does it?

I also doubt very much that agent Morales (nickname: El Gordo, the Fat One) was in Dallas and LA just by coincidence on both occasions–or for the simple pleasure of seeing the two men he clearly despised.

And above all, this confirms my deepest suspicions–that JFK was killed because he was contemplating a rapprochement with Fidel Castro, the very thing the right-wing Cuban mafia in Miami didn’t want. Neither did the CIA, which we know has been in cahoots with all the worst scum of Latin America since its inception in the late 1940s.

Motive, means, opportunity–and now, one member of the CIA has been placed at the scene of both crimes, and two more definitely placed at the scene of Bobby Kennedy’s murder. Luuuuuucy, you got some splainin’ to doooooo!

But wait…that’s not all.

Gordon Campbell was Chief of Maritime Operations and George Joannides was Chief of Psychological Warfare Operations.

Joannides was called out of retirement in 1978 to act as the CIA liaison to the Congressional investigation into the JFK assassination. Now, we see him at the Ambassador Hotel the night a second Kennedy is assassinated.


Paul Schrade […] was walking behind Robert Kennedy that night and was shot in the head. He believes this new evidence merits fresh investigation:

“It seems very strange to me that these guys would be at a Kennedy celebration. What were they doing there? And why were they there? It’s our obligation as friends of Bob Kennedy to investigate this.”

Ed Lopez, a former Congressional investigator who worked with Joannides in 1978, says:

“I think the key people at the CIA need to go back to anybody who might have been around back then, bring them in and interview them, and ask – is this Gordon Campbell? Is this George Joannides?”

I think Lucy got lotsa splainin’ to do, si?

What a pity Morales and Joannides are both now deceased, and Campbell‘s whereabouts are unknown. I am certain all three literally got away with murder.
