    1963, Heroin, Cocaine, and the assassination

    I’d be surprised if Castro did smuggle drugs.

    1963, Heroin, Cocaine, and the assassination

    There was a concerted propaganda effort at the time to implicate Red China in the heroin trade. I think this was spearheaded by Anslinger and FBN. Historians nearly universally dismiss this as false history.

    Jim Garrison: The Beat Goes On

    Jim - yes, in Mill Valley where he speaks for an hour once a week health permitting. He’s 91 and very unsteady on his feet. It might be possible to sit with him, but he has a handler or friend that controls access after his show, and he is hard of hearing so conversation is difficult. I think my meeting lasted about 2 minutes. When he talks he rambles, touches on many things, occasionally JFK. He takes questions after he talks. I asked him if he had ever met DeGaulle, figuring he might go from there. His answer was interesting. He said he met him once, and that JFK didn’t like DeGaulle because he was in some ways like him.

    Did Dinkin in fact talk with Garrison?

    Jim Garrison: The Beat Goes On

    Jim - you mention Steve Jaffe in your essay. He hasn’t posted here in a while. I asked him for more detail on Garrison sending him to France to interview an SDECE member and he said I would have to wait for his book to come out. Any idea about such a book? i gather the Garrison papers you reference are not available. Can you share anything?

    FBI Quietly Contacting Cubans

    Since I can’t read NYT articles free, what’s the gist?

    Jim Garrison: The Beat Goes On

    Agree - Jim’s essays are always worth reading and to the point. So may times Over the years I’ve remarked to friends how telling it was that negative press on JFK movie started months before it’s release. i asked Mort Sahl, who I’ve gone to see twice in the last few months, what he thought of Jim Garrison, and his answer was short and definitive - he was a great American who solved the case.

    Who was QJ/WIN

    It seems to me that I’ve read it before, but it still might be ‘new’. I probably didn’t notice the new cryptonym. Larry Hancock days that there were QJWIN offices in a few US locations, including California. He thinks it doesn’t refer only to an individual, but possibly an operation as well. Any docs you find are worth posting. I’m still interested in the offshore funding for AMLASH.

    Who was QJ/WIN

    I’ve seen the Rockefeller material before. The author has gotten his info from the CIA.

    Who was QJ/WIN

    Why is that? As for Mali, it might be significant that it was a French colony at the time. it would not be too surprising that expeses were incurred in Florida, as Harvey was attached to JMWAVE until his ‘banishment’, btw away from the prying eyes of RFK who wanted him fired, to Rome.

    Who was QJ/WIN

    That would be a logical assumption.
  12. David Talbot posted today that due to the death of Christopher Lawford the interview today is cancelled. He hopes he can find another date soon.
  13. Hi Paul, I was hoping to get up there to the Talbot interview with RFK Jr. and meeting you as well. Unfortunately it was the one weekday I couldn't make it. I'll be  curious to hear what you think of it. Again thanks for informing me and let me know of any other such events in the future.

      Kirk - I completely neglected to post that David Talbot posted on FB this morning that due to the death of Christopher Lawford the interview was cancelled. Talbot hopes to do it at another time. I’m going to post a thread now. It would be a pleasure to meet you sometime.

      Maybe we can benefit from unfortunate events and I'll be able to make it next time.

    Once again I think QJBANNER is Arnold Silver

    David Talbot on Robert F. Kennedy's war on crime

    Who no doubt thinks that Putin’s long operation lends support to the theory that the KGB was actually behind the JFK assassination.
