Gordon Novel

Recommended Posts

What do members think about Gordon Novel? He is still alive and recently made threats against David Reitzes for calling him a conman. Retizes is ranked number one at Google if you do a search for “Gordon Novel”. Today I have done a page on Novel. Within a week it should replace Retizes at number one. Maybe Novel will then make contact with me.

According to Alan J. Weberman: "In his youth, Gordon Novel belonged to a neo-Nazi group and was arrested and charged with bombing a Metairie, Louisiana, theater that admitted blacks". In the early 1960s Novel ran an electronics firm in New Orleans which specialized in selling equipment used for bugging.

It was claimed by Jim Garrison that Novel was formerly a member of the Central Intelligence Agency and was an associate of Sergio Arcacha Smith, David Ferrie and Guy Banister. It was also reported that Novel worked with the Cuban Revolutionary Front during the Bay of Pigs operation via the CIA proprietary, the Evergreen Advertising Agency.

According to William Torbitt Novel had been seen by a Dallas attorney having meetings with Jack Ruby and William Seymour in the Carousel Club during October and November, 1963. Another author, Paris Flammonde (The Kennedy Conspiracy), claims that Novel was questioned on five separate occasions following the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

Jim Garrison discovered that Sergio Arcacha Smith, David Ferrie and Guy Banister had been involved in a CIA operation to pick up "war material" for the Bay of Pigs attack at from the Schlumberger Well Company. Garrison subpoenaed Novel but he fled to Ohio. However, the James Rhodes, the Governor of Ohio, refused to extradite him unless Garrison agreed not to question him on the assassination.

A few weeks after Novel fled from New Orleans a woman cleaning his old apartment found a penciled draft of a letter wedged under a plastic cover alongside the kitchen. The letter was addressed to a Mr. Weiss. This letter was passed to Jim Garrison who concluded that it was a letter to Novel's CIA contact. "I took the liberty of writing you direct and apprising you of current situation, expecting you to forward this through appropriate channels. Our connection and activity of that period involves individuals presently about to be indicted as conspirators in Garrison's investigation."

Novel also said in the letter: "We have temporarily avoided one subpoena not to reveal Double Chek activities or associate them with this mess. We want out of this thing before Thursday 3/67. Our attorneys have been told to expect another subpoena to appear and testify on this matter. The fifth amendment and/or immunity (and) legal tactics will not suffice." Alan J. Weberman has pointed out that E. Howard Hunt worked for Double Chek in Miami.

In an article in Ramparts Magazine, William Turner claims that Novel admitted that the pick up at the Schlumberger Well Company was one of "the most patriotic burglaries in history." Novel is also said to have confessed that on the day the munitions were picked up, he "was called by his CIA contact and told to join a group which was ordered to transport munitions from the bunker to New Orleans."

In 1974 Jack Anderson reported that as a result of Watergate Charles Colson asked Novel to build a "degaussing gun" to erase tapes stored at the CIA and the White House that would incriminate Richard Nixon.

When pornographer Larry Flynt took over the Los Angeles Free Press in the 1970s, he devoted its space to solving the Kennedy assassination, offering a one million dollar reward to anyone providing information that led to the conviction of those responsible.

Not long thereafter, Flynt was himself the target of an assassin's bullet, which left him paralyzed. Though the Free Press had ceased to publish after Flynt was shot, he soon started Rebel magazine, which he introduced as a hipper alternative to TIME and Newsweek. The first issue carried a Mae Brussell piece on Nazi connections to the Kennedy assassination. At about this time, Gordon Novel appeared on Flyn't payroll, ostensibly as a bodyguard-cum-security-chief, if memory serves.

The "Mr. Weiss" letter found in Novel's abandoned New Orleans apartment is an interesting document. After much effort to identify the letter's intended recipient, I tentatively assumed [subject to the emergence of new details] it to be one Seymour Weiss, a New Orleans resident who had ties to both organized crime figures and - via Standard Fruit - US intelligence. [Not only was the company represented by Sullivan & Cromwell - the Dulles brothers' law firm - but both Dulles brothers held a personal stake in the company, and it was the biggest single beneficiary of the Guatemalan coup, PB/PRIME aka PB/SUCCESS. Advanced researchers will know that this was the first operation on which Howard Hunt, Dave Phillips and numerous other familiar names collaborated. They might also know that Guy Bannister, Maurice Gatlin and several other familiar names had been instrumental in supplying weapons to CIA-backed forces in Guatemala prior to the coup.]

Whether or not Novel was involved in the planning or execution of the Kennedy hit, I suspect he could shed much light on the character and relationships of those who were investigated by Jim Garrison. Certainly, Novel had no shortage of help in seeking to avoid full cooperation with Garrison. That alone indicates a level of sponsorship for Novel that might rightly pique our interest.

The page is now ranked 1st out of 1,550,000 pages. I look forward to hearing from him.

This would be a further Novel link to Mitch WerBell. In 1980 WerBell went to work for Flynt, handling his security. Do you have the source for Novel working for Flynt?

Another interesting fact I read about Novel recently:

In reviewing the films of the FBI raid on waco, during the fire at the compound, Novel believed he could detetct flashes of gunpowder coming from the FBI. He assisted an attorney representing some members of some of the victims. I'm sure you are familiar with the attorney: Ramsey Clark.

Another thought: I had read that it was Novel's theory that the FBI killed Kennedy, and his contention that Garrison was trying to blame the CIA to divert attention from the FBI. I guess everyone is entitled to this or hery theory, but I think that theory is truly novel. (HAR, HAR!)

With respect to "Mr. Weiss" please see my post in "Who Am I?"

IMO, Gordon Novel is the spitting image of Umbrella Man. I would post a photo comparison, but I'm having a problem uploading photos due to "error, exceeding the limit set...". I've reduced the photo size until they were almost non existent, and still can't upload them.

John, I've emailed you to ask what the attachment limit is.

Could you email Andy Walker about this. He sorts out this aspect of the forum.
