  1. JFK’s would-be assassination was revealed a month before his murder. The revealer was U.S. army cryptographer Eugene B. Dinkin. An early source of this information is Bloody Treason by Noel Twyman, and it’s mentioned in LBJ, the Mastermind of the JFK Assassination by Phillip Nelson. The following excerpts from Nelson’s book are found on pages 360-362: What happened to Dinkin? From Phillip Nelson we have: In short, Eugene Dinkin received the psychiatric services that had been offered to certain other people. For instance, the poet Ezra Pound, who had attempted to expose the people behind World War II, was locked up in a mental institution for 13 years. The writer and cartoonist Percy Crosby, who had bedeviled the FDR administration, was locked up in a mental hospital in which he died 16 years later: http://www.dcdave.com/article5/061210.htm, http://www.dcdave.com/article5/101003.htm. James V. Forrestal, America’s first Secretary of Defense, was relieved of his position after he opposed the creation of Israel, and was soon thereafter sent to a hospital to seek treatment for his “mental health issues.” Seven weeks later, Forrestal was found outside the hospital, having fallen from his 16th floor room in an “apparent” suicide act: http://dcdave.com/article4/040927.html. Dinkin exposed the plan to kill JFK using hitmen. Researcher Steve Rivele later interviewed French-Corsican hitman, heroin trafficker, and international spy Christian David who confirmed that the contract to kill JFK had been delivered to Antoine Guerini, leader of a French-Corsican mafia in Marseilles which had contacts with the OSS and its newer avatar, the CIA. David initially only gave the first name of an assassin who killed JFK, Lucien. He said that there were two others but didn’t name the other two because they were alive at the time and would seek David’s head for snitching. Rivele was able to determine through his contacts in the journalistic, police, and intelligence communities that this man was probably Lucien Sarti. Upon being asked to comment on Sarti, David essentially confirmed that this was the right Lucien. When asked if there was someone who could confirm him, David mentioned Michel Nicoli, a former narcotics-trafficker-turned-government-informant who had been “disappeared” by the U.S. government. Rivele managed to track down Nicoli through a U.S. DEA contact. Nicoli corroborated David on most counts, and named the other two assassins of JFK. When confronted with these two names, David essentially confirmed that these two men were the other two assassins. Rivele didn’t say who handed out the contract to kill JFK, but taking into account what David and Nicoli told Rivele about the movements of the three JFK assassins into and out of the U.S., Rivele concluded: Rivele said that American hitmen were not used to safeguard against the possibility of uncovering ties to the American mafia in the event of capture of one or more assassins. He added that because the killing was to take place in the American south, the highly skilled hitmen had to be white or close to white, thus ruling out two alternative regions from which skilled hitmen could be hired at the time, Beirut and Hong Kong. For further details on Rivele, including criticism that Rivele was involved in cover up, see this chapter by Salvador Astucia: https://web.archive.org/web/20130925030652/http://www.jfkmontreal.com/corsicans.htm Rivele didn’t name the two JFK assassins in addition to Lucien Sarti. However, using the 1973 book Contrabandista [written by Evert Clark and Nicholas Horrock] and other facts about the JFK assassination, Salvador Astucia was able to assert that the other two JFK assassins were François Chiappe and Jean-Paul Angeletti

    Joe, You're right. Many of the students went home and asked their parents if they would give them the money to buy the book so they could keep it. So, I sold several copies when I wasn't intending to and the kids really got into the assassination. Of course the school had to purchase more books to make sure they had a full class set, but they said they didn't mind.

    I agree. I believe the bullet came from the front, but not from the Grassy Knoll.
  4. Paz, You have to keep in mind that as long as people who have direct knowledge of the assassination are still alive (Bush), a new investigation won't yield anything new in terms of who was involved. What it will happen is the CIA will use the opportunity to roll-out more disinformation.

    I wrote this book for a school district whose textbook didn't cover the assassination. The school held a contest and the students designed the cover of the book. The cover of this book was the cover that received the most votes.

    James, I don't know. You're asking a very good question. Executive order 13256 designates who may classify information. Rich

    The KGB and the JFK case

    Oh...I forgot. This small piece of information might be helpful. When LBJ visited Helsinki, his Russian counterpart suggested that if something were to happen to JFK it would help both Russia and LBJ. The Russians may have placed the seed in LBJ's mind to have JFK assassinated or if LBJ was already thinking about "Executive Action", this only served to reinforce the idea.

    The KGB and the JFK case

    Paul, Lee Oswald, while in Japan was identified as a strong candidate for the false defector program to the USSR. At the time, the United States policy was to try to back away from détente. So it was debated whether or not to just send intelligence information to Oswald and hope he would pass it on to the Soviet Union, or to pass that information to Oswald and tell him he was on a mission to the USSR as a false defector and his goal was to pass that information directly into the hands of the Russians. The US government was afraid if the information was just sent to Oswald, it might simply remain in Japan and never make its way to the USSR. The information led to the shooting down of the U-2 plane piloted by Gary Powers. Gary was a CIA asset and his plane was originally rigged to explode the moment he ejected from his plane. There was, of course, a technical glitch. The Soviets had no idea of the altitude the U-2 was flying and Oswald provided that information as well as other radar secrets. The goal was simple...Power's U-2 plane was supposed to be shot down, Powers was not supposed to survive, and the US would have an excuse to pull-out of talks with the Russians. Of course we all know that Oswald made it to the USSR, he gave the intelligence to the KGB and Power's U-2 was shot down. However, Powers lived and thus he remained a prisoner for two years before we made a spy exchange to get him back. Marina Nikolayevna's uncle was Ilya Prusakov, a colonel in the Soviet Ministry of Internal Affairs. Marina went to live with him after her mother died to study pharmacy. Marina had many boyfriends, two of which were also part of the CIA's false defector program. The KGB, who was watching Oswald's every move, arranged for Marina to meet Oswald at a dance. Two months later they were married and when Oswald applied to return to the US with his wife and new baby, the Soviet Union declined. Oswald then struck a deal saying that he would be an agent for the KGB and would relay reliable and actionable intelligence information back to the KGB if Marina and their baby were allowed to return to the US. The Soviets agreed. Contrary to some opinions, Oswald was debriefed by the CIA. Oswald became a paid informant for the FBI and he relayed information he became privy to back to the CIA. To say the least, it was a hot mess. It was the type of chaos that Oswald reveled in being apart of.

    Why do you care about the names of the women he had affairs with? In my book, I document 33 different affairs JFK had prior and during his tenure as president. Do you seriously want the names and pictures of all of these women? Rich

    Student Teacher Support

    One of the most important lessons a student teacher can learn is to be very careful about what you say during lunch in the teacher's lounge. Other teachers are going to gossip and speak negatively because part of decompressing is venting your frustrations. However, you must stay away from this particular practice because it will always come back to haunt you, with no exceptions. Even tenured teachers can lose their jobs. Tenure simply means a 90-day notice. So this advice should be followed for your entire career.
