CIA was responsible for the assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy

BK Notes: I dissagree that the CIA, as an institution or organization was responsible for the assassination of President Kennedy, and they are just as much a scapegoat as Oswald, the Mafia, Cubans or Castro, and were set up to take the heat from those who were really responsible. Just because an operation is mounted on a need to know basis under the Plausible Deniabiltiy doctrine, doesn't mean it was the CIA, and it could have been covert operatives run by any number of other, simlilar functioning intelligence agencies.

According to this documentary the CIA was responsible for the assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy in November of 1962 at Daley Plaza in Dallas Texas. John Barbour produced this landmark film, The Garrison Tapes.

This documentary tells the story of District Attorney Jim Garrison, who investigated the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy his independent investigation according to the movie looked closely into evidence available to him and came forward with an interpretation that went beyond the Warren Commission's authorized report. The film examines occurrences before and after the assassination and considers theoretical connections with the FBI, the CIA, the Mafia, the Cuban situation, the war in Vietnam, and other national and international concerns. An interview with Garrison is included in the film. Footage of the tragedy and interviews with witnesses offer further information and ideas. The complete "Garrison Tapes" can be viewed below for free.

Last night George Knapp of the nationwide Coast to Coast Am radio show welcomed award-winning broadcaster John Barbour for a discussion about the JFK assassination. Parts of Barbour's interview with the late Jim Garrison were played during the show. Garrison as the New Orleans district attorney conducted his own investigation into the assassination and implicated the CIA.

According to listeners and reported on the Coast to Coast Am web site Barbour said his three-hour interview with Garrison was inspiring and exhilarating, but when portions aired on his TV show Real People in 1988, it was edited without his consent to make Garrison look delusional. He told Barbour that he believed six people killed Kennedy, acting in three teams of two, while around 32 individuals were involved in the conspiracy.

Included was Lawrence V. Meyers, a businessman with ties to the CIA, who reportedly met with Jack Ruby on Nov. 23rd, 1963. Researcher Jim Marrs has said the CIA used Meyers to get Ruby to eliminate Lee Harvey Oswald. The popular broadcast indicated that there was evidence that the changing of JFK's motorcade route in Dallas was part of the conspiracy, and there were also Mafia connections to the killing, Barbour noted. Interestingly, a CIA agent named Richard Case Nagell who had been assigned to keep an eye on Oswald, claimed he wrote a letter to J. Edgar Hoover in September 1963, warning of a plot to assassinate Kennedy in November. He was ignored and subsequently jailed.

Allin noted that even after all these years, people still want answers in the JFK assassination, and that the 9-11 truth movement has served to re-energize the public's interest in conspiracies.

During the Barbour's interview he said that the head of the CIA Dulles and his second in command were fired by President Kennedy, as an interesting note the 2nd in command's brother was at the time of the President killing the Mayor of Dallas and had at the last moment changed the route of the Kennedy motor cade to pass by the Dallas book depositary.

Barbour also claimed during the interview that his efforts to distribute the Film in the USA has met real resistance from the powers to be, but did well in global markets.

The "evidence" this documentary presents makes more since then many other conspiracy theories do and less confusing but still no one can say with any certainty who actually killed JFK. There are so many loose ends like without knowing what really happened, like what the wounds actually looked like and what was taken from JFK's body, one can only speculate. It is true, some conspiracy theorists have placed gunmen behind the picket fence on the knoll, also on top of both the TSBD and the County Records Building, among other places.

Actor Woody Harrelson's Father Charles Harrelson confessed to the FBI that he was a member of the assassination team that shot the president. Harrelson was tried and convicted for the assassination of U.S. District Judge John Wood in San Antonio. While he was behind bars in the Dallas jail he told the FBI investigators that he was the hobo seen behind the fence beyond the grassy knoll and was one of the shooters.

Harrelson was sentenced to two life terms for the May 29, 1979, assassination of U.S. District Judge John H. Wood, Jr. Harrelson was convicted of shooting and killing Wood in the parking lot outside of Wood's San Antonio, Texas, townhouse after being hired by drug dealer Jimmy Chagra of El Paso. Wood — nicknamed "Maximum John" because of his reputation for handing down long sentences for drug offenses — was originally scheduled to have Chagra appear before him on the day of his murder, but the trial had been delayed.

Harrelson was apprehended with the aid of an anonymous tip and a taped conversation between Jimmy (Jamiel) and his brother, lawyer Joe Chagra.

Harrelson was eventually convicted based largely on Chagra's conversation with his brother who was visiting him in prison. Both Harrelson and Chagra's brother Joe were implicated in the assassination. Joe Chagra received a ten-year sentence. Jamiel Chagra was acquitted of the murder when his brother Joe refused to testify against him. Chagra was represented by current mayor of Las Vegas, Oscar Goodman. In a plea bargain, Chagra admitted to his role in the murder of Judge Wood and the attempted murder of a U.S. Attorney.

Jamiel Alexander "Jimmy" Chagra, brother of famous El Paso criminal trial Lawyer Lee Chagra who was murdered by Ft. Bliss solders, and younger brother lawyer Joe Chagra who was also killed in an auto accident after serving time in prison himself. All brothers now dead.

Joe Chagra died by injuries from an automobile accident on Dec. 6 1996.

Assassin Charles Harrelson died in prison on March 15, 2007.

Jimmy Chagra the man accused of a plot to kill judge in San Antonio died in 2008. He was freed on parole in '03, he had been living in Mesa Arizona in a federal protection program. He had been battling cancer since November, said his sister, Patsy Chagra of El Paso. Most all of the conspiracies out there are only guesses, some more educated then others as are most of the investigations, Garrison's was the only official to bring a case against anyone ever in the assassination of our president and this matter is still an open unsolved case of the century.

For the full articles showing Harrelson's story of his confession and for more details of the Chagra family saga in-depth articles appeared in the El Paso Journal newspaper and the "fifth estate" news magazine featured on the cover was Jimmy and several other family members, titled "Cash Is King" both publications can only be found and read at the El Paso public Library heritage section.

The Defense Intelligence Agency should definitely be examined more closely as a facilitator on the ground in Dallas and DC - if, like CIA. not as an authorizer.

Who is the CIA protecting in the Joannides court case? And why has the CIA even kept the files it refuses to release? Isn't it known that they "lost" some Joannides monthly reports, like for November 1963? What's left to hide?

Won't this be sort of like Saddam Hussein stonewalling about WMDs till the U.S. invaded, only to find out that he didn't have any?

I agree with Bill. I don't believe the Agency ordered, planned or executed the operation. However, I do believe they've been entirely up to their necks--and sometimes "over their heads"--covering up the facts of the assassination.

Let's get right down to it. Allen Dulles WAS the CIA until fired by JFK. But even in exile, he exerted

control over many of his lieutenants like Hunt and Phillips and others. Dulles, acting on behalf of

the "secret government", set the plan in motion, with the help of Hoover and LBJ, who brought on

board everyone else needed.

So it was not the Agency "did John in". It was the "agency".

Simple. Case closed.

The Strange Tale of Eugene Dinkins

by Robert Mitchell

The amazing facts contained in the following F.B.l. document, which we are reprinting in full, are true. Dinkin's story has been verified through the existence of cablegrams between the C.l.A.'s Geneva and Washington offices both before and after the Kennedy assassination. Careful examination of those cablegrams, as well as other documents, reveal that the C.I.A. actively tried to coverup the fact that prior to November 22, 1963, PFC Dinkin was attempting to reveal the existence of a plot to assassinate Kennedy. The cablegrams also reveal that efforts were made to silence Dinkin and suppress the story.

Following the assassination, published reports revealed that someone had advance information of the assassination and the Warren Commission requested to be furnished documents relative to the allegation.

In a secret memo to J. Lee Rankin, Chief Council of the Warren Commission, C.I.A. Deputy Director Richard Helms states "Immediately AFTER the assassination (our

source in) Geneva, Switzerland reported allegations concerning a plot to assassinate President Kennedy were made by PFC Eugene Dinkin, U.S. Army, on 6 and 7

November 1963." But Helms appeared to be withholding the fact that the Agency had knowledge of Dinkin's allegations prior to the assassination.

One of the cablegrams, titled "IN CABLE No. 56631," dated November 7 1963, reported on Dinkin's background and allegations of a plot. At the end of the cable, Geneva asked: "DIRECTOR: Advise any action desired. will continue to monitor developments via army attache, F.B.l, Geneva contacts, but will not become involved visavis Swiss unless so directed." Thus the C.I. A.. and others in the intelligence community had full knowledge of Dinkin's assertions prior to the assassination.

Evidence abounds that the cables were weighted with subliminal suggestions, designed to give a predisposition to the notion that PFC Dinkin was mentally unstable. For example, cablegrams tend to be written in short, choppy sentences, often including abbreviations, omitting articles, and avoiding adjectives. However. when Dinkin is referred to, adjectives are freely added, intending to imply that Dinkin was a crackpot. "IN CABLE56631" dated November 16, 1963 refers to Dinkin's "Wild but amazing coincidence. . . " and states that Dinkin ". . . had given his wild story in Souisee"(Switzerland). Later, it states that a Time-Life stringer "...RECOLLECTED, OR THOUGHT SHE RECOLLECTED TALE TOLD BY SUBJ." This wording subtly throws a shadow of doubt on the corroborating reporter. Dinkin is further referred to as "unbalanced" on two separate occasions in this one, short cable.

Evidence that the C.I.A. tried to suppress the story and keep it from coming to the attention of the Secret Service, also emerges. In early cable communications, pertinent facts are conspicuously absent, thus carefully suppressed. Coupled with evidence that the cables were weighted in an obvious attempt to discredit Dinkin indicates that the C. I. A. was trying to cover up the matter prior to the Kennedy assassination in an effort to silence the many who were attempting to expose the plot. But for the two journalists in Geneva. the story might never have surfaced.

The shocking tale of what happened to Eugene Dinkin following his revelations has finally come to light. It includes frame up. false arrest and imprisonment, unlawful

medical treatment and medical malpractice. Dinkin has also suffered libel and misrepresentation at the hands of the Government.

Mr. Eugene B. Dinkin, 534 West Oakdale, Chicago. Illinois, advised that he had been recently discharged from the United States Army after having been in detention for four months while undergoing psychiatric tests. Dinkin advised that while stationed in Europe with the U.S. Army in 1963 he had begun a review of several newspapers including the Stars and Stripes as an exercise in "psychological sets." He explained that he had taken courses in psychology at college and was extremely interested in this subject matter. He advised that "psychological sets'' was a term referring to a series of events, articles, etc, which, when coupled

together, set up or induce a certain frame of mind on the part of a person being exposed to the series. He stated that this method of implanting an idea was much in use by the "Madison Avenue" advertising people who attempted to influence one who was exposed to these "psychological sets" to "buy" the product being advertised, whether this produce was physical or an idea.

Dinkin stated that while so reviewing the newspapers for "psychological sets" he discovered that Stars and Stripes, as well as certain unidentified Hearst newspapers, were carrying a series of "psychological sets" which he believed were deliberately maneuvered to set up a subconscious belief on the part of one reading these papers to the effect that President John F. Kennedy was "soft on communism" or "perhaps a communist sympathizer." Further study of these newspapers and the "psychological sets" contained therein made it evident to Mr. Dinkin that a conspiracy was in the making by the "military" of the United States, perhaps combined with an "ultra-right economic group," to make the people of the United States believe that President Kennedy was in fact a communist sympathizer and further that this same group planned to assassinate the President and thus was preparing these "psychological sets" to pave the way for this assassination to the point where the average citizen might well feel that "President Kennedy was sympathetic to communism and should have been killed." In addition Dinkin believed the "psychological sets" were adjusted to present a subliminal predisposition to the effect that a "communist" would assassinate President Kennedy.

Dinkin advised that he discussed his theories with certain individuals stationed with him in the Army, but had declined to furnish this information to persons of authority in the United States Army since he believed that the plot against President Kennedy was being set in motion by high ranking members of the military. He said that in October 1963 his research had not, in fact, reflected a certain date but that he believed the assassination would take place on or about a religious or semi religious occasion which he felt would be picked by the group behind this plot in order that the murder itself would become even more reprehensible to the average citizen because of the religious connotations, since he believed that the plot consisted in part of throwing blame for the assassination onto "radical left-wing" or "communist" suspects, he stated that the religious tie-in would lead the average citizen to accept more readily the theory that a "communist" committed the crime since "they were an atheistic group anyway."

Dinkins advised that he had been in trouble with the officers of his military group, the 599th Ordinance Group stationed in Germany, due to his refusal to purchase United States savings bonds. He stated that he was against the enforced purchase of these bonds because of his political convictions which made him believe that the United States should not spend 52 per cent of its income for material of war, part of which would be financed by any enforced purchases made by him. He stated that he had been outspoken in his views concerning these bond purchases, and that he and others who felt that compulsory purchase of bonds was an infringement on their civil rights, had been denied "passes" as a result of their stand.

As a result of his opposition to the bond purchases. according to Dinkin, he was removed from his position in the code section and transferred to an Army Depot at

Metz, France. On October 25, 1963. Dinkin went to the United States Embassy at Luxembourg where, he stated, he attempted for several hours so see a Mr. Cunningham, the Charge D'Affaires at the Embassy. He stated that he sent word to Mr. Cunningham that he had information concerning a plot to assassinate President Kennedy, and at one point spoke to Mr. Cunningham by phone. He said that Cunningham refused to see him in person or to review the newspapers and

research papers which Dinkin said were evidence proving his theory of the impending assassination. Dinkin advised that he spent approximately two hours with the United States Marine Corps guard at the Luxembourg Embassy and had generally set forth his theories to this individual, whose name he did not know.

Following this incident, Dinkin was notified by his superiors that he was to undergo psychiatric evaluation on November 5, 1963. Due to this pending development, Dinkin said he went absent without leave to Geneva Switzerland, where he attempted to present his theory to the editor of the "Geneva Diplomat," a newspaper published in Geneva, Switzerland. In addition to this editor, Dinkin spoke to a Mr. Dewhirst (phonetic), a Newsweek reporter based at Geneva. Dewhirst would not listen to Dinkin's theories. While in Switzerland, Dinkin attempted to contact officials of Time-Life publications and succeeded in speaking to the secretary, name unknown, of this organization in Zurich. According to Dinkin, all of his efforts in Luxembourg and Switzerland were made to present to appropriate officials his warning of the impending assassination of President Kennedy. He stated that he did not attempt to see these people in connection with his personal dissatisfaction with the program of the United States Army in regards to bond purchases.

When he was unable to accomplish his purpose in Switzerland. Dinkin advised that he then returned to Germany where he gave himself up to the custody of the military authorities.

Dinkin advised that he first became aware of this "plot" to assassinate President Kennedy in September 1963. At first, he did not have enough facts, as taken from the newspapers, to support his theory, but as of October 16 1963, he felt that his research into the "psychological sets" had substantiated his theory. As of October 16, 1963. he wrote a registered letter to Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy in which letter he set forth his theory that President Kennedy would be assassinated, adding that he believed that this assassination would occur on or about November 28, 1963. He stated that he signed this letter with his own name and requested he be interviewed by a representative of the Justice Department.

He said that on the envelope, he placed the return address name of PFC Dennis De Witt an Army friend. He said he did this to preclude anyone from intercepting this letter since he felt that Army authorities might well be censoring his mail. He stated that he never received any answer to this letter, nor was he ever contacted by any representative of the Justice Department prior to his interview with agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Dinkin advised that on his return to the custody of the United Sates Army in November 1963, he was held in detention. While in detention he stated he was contacted by a white male who identified himself verbally as a representative of the Defense Department. This individual asked Dinkin for the location of the newspapers which Dinkin had compiled as his proof of the theory of the assassination of President Kennedy. This individual stated that he desired to obtain these proofs and would furnish Dinkin a receipt for the papers. Dinkin advised that he instructed this individual as to where the papers were located at the base, at which point this man left. Dinkin advised that on his release from detention, he discovered that all of his papers and notes were missing and presumed that the individual mentioned above had taken them. He never received any receipt for his papers.

Mr. Dinkin advised that he had undergone numerous psychiatric tests at Walter Reed Army Hospital in Washington. D.C. He stated that he was aware that the Army psychiatrist had declared him to be "psychotic" and a "paranotic." He said that several of the tests given him were familiar to him from his studies in psychology at the University of Chicago. Because of his familiarity with these tests, and his background knowledge as to what the test answers should be, he believed it impossible that the results of these tests could have shown him to be "psychotic" and "paranotic.'' He stated that: if he had desired he could have "faked" the answers to prove he was sane even if he were, in fact, mentally disturbed. Mr. Dinkin stated he believed that the psychiatric evaluation given him by the Army psychiatrist was in fact and attempt on their part to cover up the military plot which he had attempted to expose.

Dinkin advised that during his detention at Walter Reed Army Hospital, arrangements had been made through his family for him to be given a psychiatric test by a private psychiatrist chosen by his family. He stated when these arrangements were finally made, he had declined the services at this private physician. Dinkin explained that he had reached a point where his only desire was to be released from custody and discharged from the Army. He stated that in order to do this, he had felt it necessary to "go along" with the examining Army psychiatrist and pretend that he had in fact been suffering from delusions but was now cured. He was afraid that if an outside psychiatrist should examine him and be told by Dinkin the facts as set forth herein, that this psychiatrist would probably believe Dinkin to be mentally disturbed and this would result in further detention. Mr. Dinkin stated that he was well aware that his theory and the facts surrounding his attempts to bring the theory to the proper authorities was extremely "wild" and could be construed by a person untrained in psychology to be "crazy." Despite this, Mr. Dinkin advised he was still of the belief that there had been, in fact, a plot plot perpetrated by a "military group" in the United States and aided and abetted by newspaper personnel working with this military group, which plot had to do with the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

I went through the FBI's reels released in 1977 and found some interesting stuff on Dinkin. It would not surprise me if he'd "mad as a hatter" NOW, because he claimed to have been mentally tortured by the Army. Those of you who order our Nagell file (available by March from CTKA) will see that that's exactly what was done to Nagell, in spades. Anyway - this is from a 9 page FBI doc on the guy, dated 4/9/64. It's in report form and looks like this was what they gave the Warren Commission. Quote on: EUGENE B. DINKIN In December, 1963, it was reported that Beth Cox, who was residing in France with an American schoolmate, had a boyfriend named Howard C. Cowen stationed in Metz, France, with the United States Army.

Betch Cox was informed one of Howard C. Cowen's acquaintances "translated or decoded the G.I. paper's headlines to read 'Kennedy will be assassinated Thanksgiving Day,' and later changed it to read the very day he died.' On March 4, 1964, Lieutenant Colonel W. L. Adams, Jr., Assistand Chief of Staff, G-2, furnished the following...: Captain Howard C. Cowen, assigned to the United States Army Depot at Metz, France, advised on February 18, 1964, that during the evening of November 22, 1963, he conversed with an acquaintance named Dennis De Witt. During the conversation, De Witt said that a friend of his, Eugene Dinkin, had predicted President Kennedy's assassination for November 22, 1963. According to De Witt, Dinkin had first predicted that the assassination would take place on November 28, 1963, but later reportedly changed the date to November 22, 1963.

According to Colonel Adams, Captain Cowen reported the above conversation to officials of the 766th Army Intelligence Corps Detachment at Metz. A short time later, Captain Cowen also related his conversation to a girl friend named Beth Cox. ... Colonel Adams stated that Eugene B. Dinkin was the subject of a closed investigation by the Office of the Assistant Chief of Staff, G-2, United States Army Communications Zone, Europe. [Lisa's note: I've also read allegations that he was NSA, detailed to Army in Europe.] He advised further that according to local Army records at Metz, France, on February 18, 1964, PFC Eugene B. Dinkin, RA 16710292, was reassigned to Walter Reed Hospital, Washington D.C., as a patient on December 3, 1963 and was ordered to proceed to that destination on or about December 4, 1963. [skipping typical diagnosis that the guy was schizophrenic, pyschotic, history of depression, delusions of persecution - the typical stuff when someone badly wants to discredit everything you say.]

On April 1, 1964, Mr. Eugen B. Dinkin, ... advised Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation that he had been recently discharged from the United States Army after having been in detention for four months while undergoing psychiatric tests. Dinkin advised that while stationed in Europe with the United States Army in 1963, he had begun a review of several newspapers including the "Stars and Stripes" as an exercise in "pyschological sets". He explained that he had taken courses in psychology at college and was extremely interested in this subject matter. He advised that "psychological sets" was a term referring to a series of events, articles, et cetera which, when coupled together, set up or induce a certain frame of mind on the part of a person being exposed to this series.

He stated that this method of implanting an idea was much in use by the "Madison Avenue" advertising people who attempted to influence one who was exposed to these "psychological sets" to "buy" the product being advertised, whether this product was physical or an idea. [subliminal seduction is another term for it. Such was in use here in early TV, then banned. But who checks, right?] Dinkin stated that while so reviewing the newspapers for "psychological sets", he discovered that "Stars and Stripes", as well as certain unidentified Hearst newspapers, were carrying a series of "psychological sets" which he believed were deliberately maneuvered to set up a subconscious belief on the part of one reading these papers to the effect that President John F. Kennedy was "soft on communism" or "perhaps a communist sympathizer". [Contrast that with today's line that he was a hardline Cold Warrior, ala Chris Matthews et al.]

Further study of these newspapers and the "psychological sets" contained therein made it evident to Mr. Dinkin that a conspiracy was in the making by the "military" of the United Stated, perhaps combined with an "ultra-right economic group", to make the people of the United States believe that President Kennedy was, in fact, a communist sympathizer and further, that this same group planned to assassinate the President and thus was preparing these "pyschological sets" to pave the way for this assassination to the point where the average citizen might well feel that "President Kennedy was sympathetic to communism and should have been killed."

In addition, Dinkin believed the "pyschological sets" were adjusted to present a subliminal predisposition to the effect that a "communist" would assassinate President Kennedy. Dinkin advised that he discussed his theories with certain individuals stationed with him in the Army, but had declined to furnish this information to persons of authority in the United States Army since he believed that the plot against President Kennedy was being set in motion by high ranking members of the military. He said that in October, 1963, his research into the "pyschological sets" appearing in "Stars and Stripes" had led him to the conclusion that the assassination of President Kennedy would occur on or about November 28, 1963.

He stated that his research had not, in fact, reflected a certain date, but that he believed the assassination would take place on or about a religious or semi-religious occasion which he felt would be picked by the group behind this plot in order that the murder itself would become even more reprehensible to the average citizen because of the religious connotations. Since he believed that the plot consisted in part of throwing blame for the assassination onto "radical left-wing" or "communist" suspects, he stated that the religious tie-in would lead the average citizen to accept more readily the theory that a "communist" committed the crime since "they were an aetheist group anyway." Dinkin advised that he had been in trouble with the officers of his military group, the 599th Ordnance Group stationed in Germany, due to his refusal to purchase United States savings bonds.

He stated that he had been outspoken in his views concerning these bond purchases, and that he and others who felt that the compulsory purchase of bonds was an infringement on their civil rights, had been denied "passes" as a result of their stand. [He sounds totally sane to me!!]

As a result of his opposition to the bond purchases, according to Dinkin, he was removed from his position in the code section and transferred to an Army Depot at Metz, France. On October 25, 1963, Dinkin went to the United States Embassy at Luxembourg where, he stated, he attempted for several hours to see a Mr. Cunningham, the Charge d'Affaires at the Embassy.

Due to this pending development, Dinkin said he went absent without leave to Geneva, Switzerland where he attempted to present his theory to the editor of the "Geneva Diplomat", a newspaper published in Geneva, Switzerland. In addition to this editor, Dinkin spoke to a Mr. Dewhirst, a "Newsweek" reporter based at Geneva. Dewhirst would not listen to Dinkin's theories.

While in Switzerland, Dinking attempted to contact officials of "Time-Life" publication and succeeded in speaking to the secretary, name unknown, of this organization in Zurich. According to Dinkin, all of his efforts in Luxembourg and Switzerland were made to present to appropriate officials his warning of the impending assassintion of President Kennedy. He stated that he did not attempt to see these people in connection with his personal dissatisfaction with the program of the United States Army as regards to bond purchases. When he was unable to accomplish his purpose in Switzerland, Dinkin advised that he then returned to Germany where he gave himself up to the custody of the military authorities.

As of October 16, 1963, he wrote a registered letter to Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy [let's get the review board to look for THAT] in which letter he set forth his theory that President Kennedy would be assassinated, adding that he believed that this assassination would occur on or about November 28, 1963. He stated that he signed this letter with his own name and requested that he be interviewed by a representative of the Justice Department. He said that on the envelope, he placed the return address name of PFC Deniis De Witt, an Army friend. He said he did this to preclude anyone from intercepting this letter since he felt that Army authorities might well be censoring his mail [again, sounds very logical, very sane.] He stated that he never received any answer to this letter, nor was he ever contacted by any representative of the Justice Deparetment prior to this interview with Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Dinkin advised that the following individuals would have knowledge of his theory and predictions, having been informed of these predictions by Dinkin prior to November 22, 1963:

PFC Dennis De Witt

United States ARmy

...

PFC Larry Pullen

United States Army Headquarters Company

...

Seargeant Walter Reynolds

Headquarters Company, WSAGD

...

Dr. Afar (phonetic), a civilian psychology teacher employed by the

United States Army at Metz, France;

R. THomas

...Switzerland. Thomas is an Indian student attending the University at

Fribourg with whom Dinkins discussed his theories immediately prior to

his return from Switzerland to France.

Dinkin advised that on his return to the custody of the United States

Army in November 1963, he was held in detention. While in detention, he

stated he was contacted by a white male who identified himself verbally

as a representative of the Defense Department. This individual asked

Dinkin for the location of the newspapers which Dinkin had compiled as

proof of the theory of the assassination of President Kennedy. This

individual stated that he desired to obtain these proofs and would

furnish Dinkin a receipt for the papers. Dinkin advised that he

instructed this individual as to where the papers were located at the

base, at which point this man left. Dinkin advised that on his release

from detention, he discovered that all of his papers and notes were

missing and presumed that the individual mentioned above had taken them.

He never received any receipt for his papers.

Mr. Dinkin advised that he had undergone numerous psychiatric tests at

Walter Reed Army Hospital in Washington, D.C. He stated that he was aware

that the Army psychiatrist had declared him to be "psychotic" and a

"paranotic". He said that several of the tests given him were familiar to

him from his studies in psychology at the University of Chicago. Because

of his familiarity with these tests, and his background knowledge as to

what the test answers should be, he believed it impossible that the

results of these tests could have shown him to be "psychotic" and

"paranotic". He stated that if he had desired, he could have "faked" the

answer to prove he was sane even if he were, in fact, mentally disturbed.

Mr. Dinkin stated he believed that the psychiatric evaluation given him

by the Army psychiatrist was, in fact, an attempt on their part to cover

up the military plot which he had attempted to expose.

Dinkin advised that during his detention at Walter Reed Army Hospital,

arrangements had been made through his family for him to be given a

psychiatric test by a private psychiatrist chosen by his family.

He stated when these arrangements were finally made, he had declined the

services of this private physician. Dinkin explained that he had reached

a point where his only desire was to be released from custody and

discharged from the Army. He sated that in order to do this, he had felt

it necessary to "go along" with the examining Army psychiatrist and

pretend that he had, in fact, been suffering from delusions but was now

cured. He was afraid that should an outside psychiatrist examine him and

be told by Dinkin the facts as set forth herein, that this psychiatrist

would probably believe Dinkin to be mentally disturbed, and this would

result in further detention for Dinkin.

Mr. Dinkin stated that he was well aware that his theory and the facts surrounding his attempts to

bring this theory to the proper authorities was extremely "wild" and could be construed by a person untrained in psychology to be "crazy". Despite this, Mr. Dinkin advised he was still of the belief that there

had been, in fact, a plot perpetrated by a "military group" in the United States and aided and abetted by newspaper personnel working with this military group, which plot had to do with the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Dinkins story, which we've probably all seen before - but I had forgotten that last piece.

http://pages.prodigy.net/benede/_import/pa...ede/index4.html

QUOTE

Russell presented the story of Private Eugene B. Dinkin, who had been trained as a army cryptographic code operator, which in effect made him a small part of the National Security Agency. In early 1962, he had been assigned to the 529th Ordnance Company in France, where he was awarded the requisite security clearances. When Dinkin became upset during his duties, he was given a psychiatric evaluation, and his security clearance was removed. In late October of 1963, Dinkin mailed a letter to Attorney General Robert Kennedy, warning him that an attempt would be made to kill President Kennedy during the latter part of November. In the letter he revealed, that blame would be cast on a Communist, while he claimed that the conspiracy involved elements of the military, especially far right elements of the same. An FBI report of April 3, 1964 acknowledged Dinkin's warning, but made no mention of attempts made to rectify the situation. Hearing via the grape vine that he was about to be locked up as a psychotic, Private Dinkin went AWOL and tried to warn media in Switzerland and Germany without success. He also made an attempt to warn the U.S. Embassy in Bonn but was advised to return to his place of military assignment. Defeated, he returned, and was immediately "hospitalized" at Landstuhl General Hospital in a closed psychiatric ward until Kennedy had been killed, whereupon he was flown to Walter Reed Hospital in Washington D.C. There he was given therapy to help him deal with his unfortunate condition of "schizo-assassination prognostication syndrome," a decease [sic] one would normally associate only with the former Soviet Union. He was made to understand, that if his condition did not improve, he would undergo electric shock treatment, whereupon his condition dramatically "improved." He was released from Walter Reed Hospital and the U.S. Army on a medical discharge. During the trial of Clay Shaw in New Orleans, Garrison found out that Dinkin's duty had been to decipher telegraphic traffic originating with the French OAS, which was extremely close to factions of the CIA at the time. One surmises, that Dinkin caught his unfortunate decease while dealing with communications between the two venerable organizations.

There are a few reasons that I don't believe the "Agency" nor "the agency" was involved "operationally" in the assassination. The first reason may come as a surprise. They are incompetent when it comes to operations. Why? Because they do not employ "operators" -- nor are they well equipped to "train" operators, as it is not their governmental function.

The CIA gets way too much credit for things that they simply SUCK at doing!

Cases in point (listed in no particular order):

the Bay of Pigs Fiasco;

the Iran/Contra Scandal;

the Watergate Hotel Break In;

being discovered as having orchestrated the overthrow of the Shah of Iran, Allende, Trujillo, & Arbenz.

The fact that the agency's involvement in these "operations" was discovered, in the first place, is all important here! As a covert unit, they should NEVER be discovered. But they were. They always are. They are considered the "red headed step children" of the intelligence community who deserve to be beaten down. Hell, they volunteer for it!

The CIA is a front operation for the REAL Intelligence Agencies of the US Government. Make no mistake--JFK was assassinated by the MILITARY's Intelligence apparatus. He was treasonously removed by them because he was erroneously viewed as an incompetent "Commander-in Chief" who might cause WWIII by accident.

In the year 2010 this should not even be in question any longer.

Nobody said they were competent. Most murderers are NOT.

Jack

Well, if a murder plan does succeed and the perps are not discovered, then they were competent, no?

Likewise, in this EXCEPTIONAL case [the murder of the POTUS] the perps' plan and execution succeeded. So, whoever was behind it and involved in it, operationally, was very competent, indeed.

However, competency is not the hallmark of the CIA.

It is a very interesting subterfuge. The USGOV involves itself in various "operations" on a daily basis, literally. PROFESSIONALS are employed to execute these operations. These are people who DO NOTHING ELSE IN LIFE except "operations" on behalf of the USGOV (or sometimes, on behalf of other "friendly" governments, too).

The "real" operators--and the agencies to which they have allegiance--are NEVER exposed--NEVER. That's the way it is.

The CIA deals with "plausible deniability" -- But, that's child's play, by comparison to the REAL DEAL.

The real intelligence apparatus does NOT deal with "plausible deniability" -- they couldn't care less because they're invisible. Untouchable. If discovery gets too close...they throw the CIA "under the bus" everytime. It's easy. The CIA volunteers for that role because they already appear to be incompetent. It's the opposite of the 1960's "plausible deniability" mantra... Today, it's all about: "believable incompetence" --

When you think about it, it's quite brilliant...in a scary way.

Allen Dulles in his book on spook work (I forget the title) made a point of the fact that something always goes wrong in a covert operation. Cover is blown. But people don't notice or don't think anything of it.

So it's not that the CIA is incompetent. Blown cover is the nature of the business. With the exception of the Bay of Pigs, all of the CIA's best known operations, in which cover has been blown, have been successful. (And it can be argued that the Bay of Pigs operation was designed to fail, which it succeeded in doing).

Cover has been blown, the American people have noticed, but the fact is they don't give a damn. They don't give a damn time and again.
