Bloomfield, Permindex and the CIA

8 posts in this topic

Since April 2010, I have posted on this forum documents that I have unearthed from the Louis M. Bloomfield Archives held by Library and Archives Canada (LAC). Those documents dealing with Permindex were posted under a “Louis Mortimer Bloomfield” thread (Louis M. Bloomfield thread) that was started in 2006 at a time were I shared with members of The Education Forum the news relating to the legal battle I engaged with LAC and the Canadian government in order to make the Louis M. Bloomfield opened.

Today, I’m starting this new Bloomfield, Permindex and the CIA thread because I believe that the JFK assassination researchers should take a new look at the Permindex issue under the enlightening information contained in the E. Howard Hunt death bed confession. At a first level, Hunt’s confession pointed a finger at President Johnson and Cord Meyer, but what may be the more interesting piece of information from Hunt is his description of the operational aspect of the JFK conspiracy, in which he implicated William Harvey, who in 1963 was Chief of CIA station in Rome, the city where Permindex and Centro Mondiale Commerciale (CMC) were located.

E. Howard Hunt, who also specified that Bill Harvey organized the assassination from Rome and hired Corsican sharpshooters, was thus giving us an important missing link necessary to understand how an Italian corporation as Permindex could be related to the JFK conspiracy. As of now, only Clay Shaw could be related to this Italian company since he was a member of CMC directorship.

Documents found in the Bloomfield Archives gave us more details on the structure and leadership of Permindex. For instance, they show that Ferenc Nagy was the active leader of Permindex and, in 1960, was making contact with David Rockefeller in order to develop the New York City’s World Trade Center on the model of the CMC.

When we combine the E. H. Hunt’s revelation, the information form the Bloomfield archives and some little known documents released by NARA under the JFK documents program, we start to sketch a coherent picture in which the JFK assassination seems to be carried by (rogue?) members of the CIA using Permindex as part of the Italian Gladio network put in place to combat Soviet Communism.

What is the most convincing document indicating that Permindex was put at CIA’s disposition is a Central Intelligence Agency memo addressed to the HSCA and declassified in the mid-1990; a document that doesn’t seem to have been published anywhere yet and that I found on the fantastic Marry Ferrel website. This CIA’s memo dated 3/24/67 (that I reproduced in the text below) flatly states: “NAGY, Ferenc, (…) was a cleared contact of the International Organizations Division. His 201 file contains a number of references to his association with the World Trade Center.”

And:

“The attached documents are related to an investigation of Permindex initiated in 1959. This was the result of a query from NAGY asking if CIA would be interested in using Permindex in some capacity. The documents did not indicate whether or not CIA decided to use Permindex.”

It is hard to believe that the CIA, engaged in an epic battle to counter Communism in Italy, and active in organizing its Gladio network, would say no to "a query from NAGY asking if CIA would be interested in using Permindex in some capacity".

Following is the last post I have published on my blog at Some Secrets for You and that discuss the Ferenc Nagy-CIA-Permindex links. The previous post exposed a Louis Bloomfield’s letter indicating that Nagy and Bloomfield were in discussion with David Rockefeller to create the New York City’s World Trade Center on the model of Permindex and the Centro Mondiale Commerciale. From what I know (and I would appreciate if you have other info on this subject), it is the first time that Rockefeller is linked to Nagy and Permindex, and through them to the CIA.

Your comments and views on this topic are welcome.

THE PERMINDEX-CIA LINK II

PART 2: FERENC NAGY: THE CIA MAN IN PERMNDEX

Who is really this Dr. Ferenc Nagy that exercised a leadership position in Permindex? The fact is that this little known individual was an international figure which is recognized to have played a major role on the international scene.

In 1946, after the war, Ferenc Nagy was elected Prime Minister of Hungary in this country first democratic election. At the same time, he also acted as Hungarian Minister of Defence. Opposed to Communism, he was forced to resign his position after his 5 years old son was kidnapped, and immigrated to the United States. Shortly after his arrival in the US, Nagy co-wrote an essay on his political career, titled The Struggle behind the Iron Curtain that was published by MacMillan in 1948. Royalties from this book help him buy a 130 acres farm in Herndon, Virginia. Those acreages of land, situated West of Washington D.C., gain significantly in value in 1958 when the Eisenhower administration choose to establish what is now Dulles International Airport just West of Herndon.

In Washington, Nagy kept important ties with the US government and the CIA during the Cold War. In 1956, Nagy and the CIA were accused by the Soviets of being behind the Hungarian uprising. A November 8th 1956 New York Times dispatch reported:

“Soviet propaganda outlets reported today that the uprising in Hungary has been financed by the Western Powers and that advance plans had been approved by the "highest circles" in the United States. (…) The allegation of outside planning and support for the uprising against the Hungarian government was contained in a report from Vienna broadcast by the Moscow radio tonight. This named Ferenc Nagy, former Hungarian premier and [international] Peasant Union leader ..., as the key figure in the supposed plot against the regime. The report said that Mr. Nagy met with Hungarian emigres in Munich "not long before the beginning of the rebellion in Hungary." He was alleged to have told them that he had just come from the United States where plans for the revolt had been "agreed upon in the highest circles." Mr. Nagy is also alleged to have worked out plans for supporting the revolt with arms and supplies in agreement with "American Organizations."

Such activities are the reason why Nagy was described as “a long-time asset of CIA Deputy Director of Plans, Frank Wisner”, who in 1956 pressured President Eisenhower to intervene in Hungary after URSS intervention. Wisner was the creator of a CIA’s organization that concentrated on "propaganda, economic warfare; preventive direct action, including sabotage, anti-sabotage, demolition and evacuation measures; subversion against hostile states, including assistance to underground resistance groups, and support of indigenous anti-Communist elements in threatened countries of the free world." In the 1990s, those kinds of activities will be revealed of being part of the NATO “Stay Behind” operation, after Italian authorities discovered the existence of the Gladio network in this country.

Oddly enough, Permindex was incorporated in Basle in 1956, the same year when Ferenc Nagy travelled to Germany and Switzerland on the eve of the Hungarian uprising. It is certainly not by pure chance that Nagy, Wisner CIA’s asset, choose this busy period of his life to become one of Permindex’s directors. In all evidence, Nagy proximity with the CIA and the fact that at the same time he associated with Permindex is enough to let us conclude that Permindex was related to Wisner’s anti-Communist crusade, in as much that it was directed by Nagy, one of CIA’s important collaborators in its anti-Soviet operations. Also, the facts that the Italian Gladio network was revealed to be coupled with the P2 freemasonic lodge and that Bloomfield described Permindex’s George Mantello as a 33rd degree Freemason, tend to indicate that Permindex may be intricated with the CIA’s Italian Gladio network.

But, if we need a more official and explicite proof of the Nagy-Permindex-CIA linkage we can found it in writing in a CIA document transmitted to the House Select Committee on Assassination (HSCA) and released by the US National Archives in the middle of the 1990’s. This CIA’s memo dated 3/24/67 indicated that:

“NAGY, Ferenc, (…) was a cleared contact of the International Organizations Division. His 201 file (i.e. its CIA personal file) contains a number of references to his association with the World Trade Center.”

The memo concluded on those words: “The attached documents are related to an investigation of Permindex initiated in 1959. This was the result of a query from NAGY asking if CIA would be interested in using Permindex in some capacity. The documents did not indicate whether or not CIA decided to use Permindex.”

aarc-cia009-04_0044_0003+permindex+cia.png

(Source for this document: the Mary Ferrel Foundation Web site at : Marry Ferrel website. See also Clay Shaw doc ) that make reference to this document and also states that Hunter Leake was the CIA’s contact with Clay Shaw and that “Shaw was official source contacted on 30 occasions between 1949 and 1956.”)

It is hard to believe that the CIA, engaged in an epic battle to counter Communism in Italy, and active in organizing its Gladio network, would say no to "a query from NAGY asking if CIA would be interested in using Permindex in some capacity". Most probably, "The documents did not indicate whether or not CIA decided to use Permindex” because the answer was to obvious!

After the failure of the Hungarian uprising, Nagy became active in other CIA anti-communist projects, particularly those concerning Latin America and Cuba. Nagy eventually moved to Dallas, Texas where he was residing in 1963, allegedly engaged in anti-Castro activities.

It is worth keeping in mind that Frank Wisner, Ferenc Nagy’s CIA controller, was the superior of William Harvey and Cord Meyer, two of the CIA men that were implicated in the JFK assassination by CIA officer E. Howard Hunt in his death bed confession. In 1962, Bill Harvey, after an important conflict with the Kennedys, was exiled to Italy where he became Chief of Station in Rome. According to Hunt, Harvey organized JFK’s assassination from Rome and recruited Corsican sharpshooters to accomplish the President execution.

To further document the relationship between Nagy-Permindex and the JFK assassination, it is also important to know that Ferenc Nagy was identified as someone that had visited Guy Banister's detective office in New Orleans by Bannister's secretary. The private eye was an ex-FBI agent that was directing anti-Castro activities in Louisiana and was related to Lee Harvey Oswald and Clay Shaw.

In conclusion, what we now learn from documents of the Bloomfield Archives is that Dr. Nagy was the initiator of contacts with David Rockefeller at the beginning of year 1960, and that Rockefeller did collaborate with Permindex and CMC in order to speed up the development of his World Trade Center organization.

The facts

1) that the Bloomfield letters show Nagy, the CIA “cleared contact”, as an autonomous Permindex decision maker in this relation with such important personality as David Rockefeller;

and

2) that the ex-Hungarian did offer the Central Intelligence Agency to use Permindex in 1959, tend to demonstrate that Nagy was in command of Permindex and willing to use it to fulfil CIA’s objectives, or those of rogue CIA’s officers like William Harvey.

Thus, if we give credence to E. Howard Hunt’s confession to the effect that Bill Harvey planned the JFK assassination from Rome, the connexion between Clay Shaw and the Roman CMC become of the utmost interest.

According to some reports, Clay Shaw, the New Orleans businessman who was in contact with Lee Harvey Oswald and who was accused by Jim Garrison of conspiracy in the JFK assassination, only joined Rome CMC’s directorship in 1962. There is a strong probability that documents from the Bloomfield Archives dating from years 1961 to 1963 can clarify the circumstances in which Shaw joined CMC and Permindex. But we won’t know before a few years if the Louis Bloomfield Archives contain such information, that because Library and Archives Canada (LAC) --against its donator’s will-- is actually keeping secret the Permindex documents that are less than 50 years old, on pretext that they contain information that are protected by a client-attorney privilege.

This pretext seems quite frivolous when we consider that the above Bloomfield’s letter to Dr. Imfeld was kept secret until 2010 for this same reason. Yet, this letter was sent in Carbon copies (CC) to two other correspondents, and even by a blind CC, that is by hiding to Dr. Imfeld that a secret correspondent was copied on the letter. Furthermore, Dr. Imfeld wasn’t lawyer Bloomfield’s client but one of his associates in Permindex, and Canadian jurisprudence is clear on the effect that documents from a lawyer acting as a company’s associate or manager aren’t protected by professional secret. That any competent archivist could declare such a letter covered by an attorney-client secret is nonsense.

The poor judgement that is at the origin of LAC’s decision to keep secret an important part of the Bloomfield Archives, that could contain information on the activities of Permindex, Ferenc Nagy, and Clay Shaw in years 1961 to 1963, is depriving the world of important information about the JFK assassination.

Just as the Louis Bloomfield Archives —for the first time—documented the relation between Ferenc Nagy’s Permindex and David Rockfeller’s WTC, the other Bloomfield documents kept secret by Library and Archives Canada —against their donator’s will— may well contain exclusive information on the relationship between Ferenc Nagy, Clay Shaw and Permindex. The JFK assassination being definitely one of the most important historic events of the Twentieth Century, it is deplorable that a national historical institution like Library and Archives Canada locks its doors on such documents.

Yes, let us blame the Italians. They make a handy scapegoat.

Maurice, I don't know if the following figures into your hypothesis. : Various persons converged in Italy during WWII, ranging from JJA, to General Walker, RR Carr, the black prince that was protected by the OSS, the seemingly ridiculously faltered landing in Anzio and the liquidation of northern resistance fighters (largely communist inspired) by the retreating German forces and how persons involved in this theatre again converged in Dallas.

The Nov. 22, 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy was coordinated by the Rome and New Orleans-headquartered Permindex corporation, which French intelligence, SDECE, discovered had also put up $200,000 for an attempt on de Gaulle. Even a cursory examination of the hard-core fascist outlook and connections of most of the Permindex/CMC personnel, their numerous ties to high-level Anglo-American intelligence, along with their financial connections, leaves no doubt that Permindex and its Rome-based arm, Centro Mondiale Commerciale (CMC), were part of the parallel NATO/Gladio structure.

Permindex was registered in Berne, Switzerland, Dulles's old stomping grounds. It was chaired by a high-ranking veteran of the Special Operations Executive (SOE) and the OSS, the Canada-based lawyer and financier, Louis Mortimer Bloomfield, the majority shareholder in Permindex (who also owned 50% of CMC). Its board was a mélange of devout "anti-communists," aristocrats, and fascists of various intelligence pedigrees. These included Count Guitierez di Spadafora, former undersecretary of agriculture to Mussolini, secretary of a British-sponsored Sicilian separatist movement, and in-law of Hjalmar Schacht, the master financier of the postwar Nazi International; Carlo d'Amelio, a Rome attorney who oversaw the financial holdings of the House of Savoy, and, according to some accounts, also of the Pallavicini family, and was the founding president of the CMC; Giuseppe Zigiotti, head of the Fascist National Association for Militia Arms; several other wartime fascists; and former OSS London and SOE veteran Col. Clay Shaw, the operations officer for the assassination.

Permindex was chaired by Canada's Bloomfield, while its international arm, CMC, was based in Rome, and Clay Shaw's firm in New Orleans, International Trade Mart, was a subsidiary of Permindex/CMC. According to documents released through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), OSS veteran Shaw worked for the CIA, as well. There was ample evidence of Shaw's involvement in the assassination, for which he was indicted by New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison. Notably, one of the names found in Shaw's personal phone book was that of Princess Marcella Borghese, a member of the Black Prince's family. And one of the lower-level figures in the ambit of the plot, Dallas nightclub owner Jack Ruby (who assassinated patsy Lee Harvey Oswald), charged repeatedly in letters from jail, that "the Nazis and the Fascists were behind the Kennedy murder." According to the highly credible Torbitt manuscript, "Ruby was much more knowledgeable about the conspiracy than most."

Huge financial resources flowed through Permindex/CMC for no commercial purpose. Some of these funds, at least, were provided through banks which had earlier financed the Nazis, including one intimately associated with Allen Dulles from the time of his 1930s work with Nazi cartels, through to his 1953-61 stint as CIA chief. Some hints of where the money was going could be found in French and Italian press reports that CMC official Ferenc Nagy, the fiercely anti-communist former Prime Minister of Hungary, was financing Jacques Soustelle and the OAS, along with other European fascist movements; or in New Orleans District Attorney Garrison's observation about "Shaw's secret life as an Agency [CIA] man trying to bring Fascism back to Italy."[6]

NATO units were also involved in at least some of the numerous assassination attempts on France's President Charles de Gaulle in 1962-63, which was no doubt a factor in de Gaulle's withdrawing France from NATO's military command in 1966. France, after all, had been a key target of NATO's "Operation Demagnetize" in the 1950s, and the "anti-communist," bitterly anti-de Gaulle OAS operatives like Guerin Serac, were natural partners of NATO. Adm. Pierre Lacoste, director of the France's military secret service DGSE (1982-85), admitted after Andreotti had exposed Gladio's existence in 1990, that some "terrorist actions" against de Gaulle and his plans to liberate Algeria were carried out by groups involving "a limited number of people" from the French Gladio organization!

A five-year investigation by France's SDECE intelligence agency of a 1962 assassination plot against de Gaulle found that the assassination had been planned in the Brussels headquarters of NATO by a specific group of British and French generals, who employed former fascists for the planned wetwork.

And then, there is the case of Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme, who was assassinated on Feb. 28, 1986 in Stockholm. While there is no hard proof that parallel Gladio networks were involved, it has been suspected by Swedish investigative journalists. On April 28, 1992, Sweden's top daily, Dagens Nyheter, carried the headline: "A Top-Secret Intelligence Network Within NATO Is Behind the Death of Olof Palme." Journalist Goran Beckerus charged that the operative branch of NATO's Allied Clandestine Committee, known by its initials SOPS, oversaw the assassination under the code name "Operation Tree."

Raymond,

You're so quick on your gun... You would have made a good shooter in Dealy Plaza! :)

Re-read my post slowly. There is no Italians involved in it. E. Hunt's confession named an American, William Harvey, based in Italy as CIA chief of Rome station. Ferenc Nagy is an Hungarian exiled to the US. And even if Giorgio and Enrico Mantello seem to be Italians, they were originally Hungarians and their real name is Mandel. I'm speaking about a CIA operation in Italy, but I'm blaming no Italians. Capiche?

Glad to hear it Maurice, because I love Italians, especially their ladies, e.g http://www.google.com/images?hl=en&source=imghp&biw=1027&bih=644&q=monica+bellucci&gbv=2&aq=f&aqi=g10&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=

Howard Hunt's accusations against Harvey are not evidence, and strike me as disinformation, a Hunt specialty. Unlike Helms and Angleton, Harvey did not profit from the assassination, as far as I know, and why would Helms and Angleton need to go to Italy to organize a Dallas murder?

Seems way too roundabout.

Since April 2010, I have posted on this forum documents that I have unearthed from the Louis M. Bloomfield Archives held by Library and Archives Canada (LAC). Those documents dealing with Permindex were posted under a Louis Mortimer Bloomfield thread (Louis M. Bloomfield thread) that was started in 2006 at a time were I shared with members of The Education Forum the news relating to the legal battle I engaged with LAC and the Canadian government in order to make the Louis M. Bloomfield opened.

Today, Im starting this new Bloomfield, Permindex and the CIA thread because I believe that the JFK assassination researchers should take a new look at the Permindex issue under the enlightening information contained in the E.

And:

The attached documents are related to an investigation of Permindex initiated in 1959. This was the result of a query from NAGY asking if CIA would be interested in using Permindex in some capacity. The documents did not indicate whether or not CIA decided to use Permindex.

It is hard to believe that the CIA, engaged in an epic battle to counter Communism in Italy, and active in organizing its Gladio network, would say no to "a query from NAGY asking if CIA would be interested in using Permindex in some capacity".

Following is the last post I have published on my blog at Some Secrets for You and that discuss the Ferenc Nagy-CIA-Permindex links. The previous post exposed a Louis Bloomfields letter indicating that Nagy and Bloomfield were in discussion with David Rockefeller to create the New York Citys World Trade Center on the model of Permindex and the Centro Mondiale Commerciale. From what I know (and I would appreciate if you have other info on this subject), it is the first time that Rockefeller is linked to Nagy and Permindex, and through them to the CIA.

THE PERMINDEX-CIA LINK II

PART 2: FERENC NAGY: THE CIA MAN IN PERMNDEX

Who is really this Dr. Ferenc Nagy that exercised a leadership position in Permindex? The fact is that this little known individual was an international figure which is recognized to have played a major role on the international scene.

In 1946, after the war, Ferenc Nagy was elected Prime Minister of Hungary in this country first democratic election. At the same time, he also acted as Hungarian Minister of Defence. Opposed to Communism, he was forced to resign his position after his 5 years old son was kidnapped, and immigrated to the United States. Shortly after his arrival in the US, Nagy co-wrote an essay on his political career, titled The Struggle behind the Iron Curtain that was published by MacMillan in 1948. Royalties from this book help him buy a 130 acres farm in Herndon, Virginia. Those acreages of land, situated West of Washington D.C., gain significantly in value in 1958 when the Eisenhower administration choose to establish what is now Dulles International Airport just West of Herndon.

In Washington, Nagy kept important ties with the US government and the CIA during the Cold War. In 1956, Nagy and the CIA were accused by the Soviets of being behind the Hungarian uprising. A November 8th 1956 New York Times dispatch reported:

Soviet propaganda outlets reported today that the uprising in Hungary has been financed by the Western Powers and that advance plans had been approved by the "highest circles" in the United States. (…) The allegation of outside planning and support for the uprising against the Hungarian government was contained in a report from Vienna broadcast by the Moscow radio tonight. This named Ferenc Nagy, former Hungarian premier and [international] Peasant Union leader ..., as the key figure in the supposed plot against the regime. The report said that Mr. Nagy met with Hungarian emigres in Munich "not long before the beginning of the rebellion in Hungary." He was alleged to have told them that he had just come from the United States where plans for the revolt had been "agreed upon in the highest circles." Mr. Nagy is also alleged to have worked out plans for supporting the revolt with arms and supplies in agreement with "American Organizations."

Such activities are the reason why Nagy was described as a long-time asset of CIA Deputy Director of Plans, Frank Wisner, who in 1956 pressured President Eisenhower to intervene in Hungary after URSS intervention. Wisner was the creator of a CIAs organization that concentrated on "propaganda, economic warfare; preventive direct action, including sabotage, anti-sabotage, demolition and evacuation measures; subversion against hostile states, including assistance to underground resistance groups, and support of indigenous anti-Communist elements in threatened countries of the free world." In the 1990s, those kinds of activities will be revealed of being part of the NATO Stay Behind operation, after Italian authorities discovered the existence of the Gladio network in this country.

Oddly enough, Permindex was incorporated in Basle in 1956, the same year when Ferenc Nagy travelled to Germany and Switzerland on the eve of the Hungarian uprising. It is certainly not by pure chance that Nagy, Wisner CIAs asset, choose this busy period of his life to become one of Permindexs directors. In all evidence, Nagy proximity with the CIA and the fact that at the same time he associated with Permindex is enough to let us conclude that Permindex was related to Wisners anti-Communist crusade, in as much that it was directed by Nagy, one of CIAs important collaborators in its anti-Soviet operations. Also, the facts that the Italian Gladio network was revealed to be coupled with the P2 freemasonic lodge and that Bloomfield described Permindexs George Mantello as a 33rd degree Freemason, tend to indicate that Permindex may be intricated with the CIAs Italian Gladio network.

But, if we need a more official and explicite proof of the Nagy-Permindex-CIA linkage we can found it in writing in a CIA document transmitted to the House Select Committee on Assassination (HSCA) and released by the US National Archives in the middle of the 1990s.

The memo concluded on those words: The attached documents are related to an investigation of Permindex initiated in 1959. This was the result of a query from NAGY asking if CIA would be interested in using Permindex in some capacity. The documents did not indicate whether or not CIA decided to use Permindex.

(Source for this document: the Mary Ferrel Foundation Web site at : Marry Ferrel website. See also Clay Shaw doc ) that make reference to this document and also states that Hunter Leake was the CIAs contact with Clay Shaw and that Shaw was official source contacted on 30 occasions between 1949 and 1956.)

It is hard to believe that the CIA, engaged in an epic battle to counter Communism in Italy, and active in organizing its Gladio network, would say no to "a query from NAGY asking if CIA would be interested in using Permindex in some capacity". Most probably, "The documents did not indicate whether or not CIA decided to use Permindex because the answer was to obvious!

After the failure of the Hungarian uprising, Nagy became active in other CIA anti-communist projects, particularly those concerning Latin America and Cuba. Nagy eventually moved to Dallas, Texas where he was residing in 1963, allegedly engaged in anti-Castro activities.

It is worth keeping in mind that Frank Wisner, Ferenc Nagys CIA controller, was the superior of William Harvey and Cord Meyer, two of the CIA men that were implicated in the JFK assassination by CIA officer E. Howard Hunt in his death bed confession. In 1962, Bill Harvey, after an important conflict with the Kennedys, was exiled to Italy where he became Chief of Station in Rome. According to Hunt, Harvey organized JFKs assassination from Rome and recruited Corsican sharpshooters to accomplish the President execution.

To further document the relationship between Nagy-Permindex and the JFK assassination, it is also important to know that Ferenc Nagy was identified as someone that had visited Guy Banister's detective office in New Orleans by Bannister's secretary. The private eye was an ex-FBI agent that was directing anti-Castro activities in Louisiana and was related to Lee Harvey Oswald and Clay Shaw.

In conclusion, what we now learn from documents of the Bloomfield Archives is that Dr. Nagy was the initiator of contacts with David Rockefeller at the beginning of year 1960, and that Rockefeller did collaborate with Permindex and CMC in order to speed up the development of his World Trade Center organization.

The facts

1) that the Bloomfield letters show Nagy, the CIA cleared contact, as an autonomous Permindex decision maker in this relation with such important personality as David Rockefeller;

and

2) that the ex-Hungarian did offer the Central Intelligence Agency to use Permindex in 1959, tend to demonstrate that Nagy was in command of Permindex and willing to use it to fulfil CIAs objectives, or those of rogue CIAs officers like William Harvey.

Thus, if we give credence to E. Howard Hunts confession to the effect that Bill Harvey planned the JFK assassination from Rome, the connexion between Clay Shaw and the Roman CMC become of the utmost interest.

According to some reports, Clay Shaw, the New Orleans businessman who was in contact with Lee Harvey Oswald and who was accused by Jim Garrison of conspiracy in the JFK assassination, only joined Rome CMCs directorship in 1962. There is a strong probability that documents from the Bloomfield Archives dating from years 1961 to 1963 can clarify the circumstances in which Shaw joined CMC and Permindex. But we wont know before a few years if the Louis Bloomfield Archives contain such information, that because Library and Archives Canada (LAC) --against its donators will-- is actually keeping secret the Permindex documents that are less than 50 years old, on pretext that they contain information that are protected by a client-attorney privilege.

This pretext seems quite frivolous when we consider that the above Bloomfields letter to Dr. Imfeld was kept secret until 2010 for this same reason. Yet, this letter was sent in Carbon copies (CC) to two other correspondents, and even by a blind CC, that is by hiding to Dr. Imfeld that a secret correspondent was copied on the letter. Furthermore, Dr. Imfeld wasnt lawyer Bloomfields client but one of his associates in Permindex, and Canadian jurisprudence is clear on the effect that documents from a lawyer acting as a companys associate or manager arent protected by professional secret. That any competent archivist could declare such a letter covered by an attorney-client secret is nonsense.

The poor judgement that is at the origin of LACs decision to keep secret an important part of the Bloomfield Archives, that could contain information on the activities of Permindex, Ferenc Nagy, and Clay Shaw in years 1961 to 1963, is depriving the world of important information about the JFK assassination.

Just as the Louis Bloomfield Archives for the first timedocumented the relation between Ferenc Nagys Permindex and David Rockfellers WTC, the other Bloomfield documents kept secret by Library and Archives Canada against their donators will may well contain exclusive information on the relationship between Ferenc Nagy, Clay Shaw and Permindex. The JFK assassination being definitely one of the most important historic events of the Twentieth Century, it is deplorable that a national historical institution like Library and Archives Canada locks its doors on such documents.

I think this is a very worthwhile post. The CIA could have recruited its assassins from anywhere in the world ... and anywhere William King Harvey was located. I think Allen Dulles, the Rockefellers, and E. Howard Hunt were all involved in the JFK assassination. I think that Lyndon Johnson made a dirty deal with the CIA to murder John Kennedy. I think that E. Howard Hunt's revelations are extremely signicant. Remember LBJ told Madeleine Brown on 12/31/63 that Texas oil and the CIA murdered John Kennedy.

I see Raymond Carroll is chirping in. He is the guy who believes 1) there is NO WAY that Oswald was a US intelligence agent 2) that Gen. Ed Lansdale was not photographed at TSBD and now ... that E. Howard Hunt's deathbed confessions to his son regarding the involvement of LBJ and the CIA are "disinformation."

I strongly disagree with Raymond Carroll on all 3 points.

I'd sure love to know what was discussed at the Bilderberg meetings in 1963.....or 2001 for that matter...
