Correspondence with Vincent Salandria


Recommended Posts

"Vincent J. Salandria, a Philadelphia attorney, was the first person to publish a critique of the Warren Report. He was an intimate and trusted adviser to Jim Garrison, and like Garrison, has always maintained that the assassination of President Kennedy was a CIA operation in which the U.S. national security establishment was fully complicit. This correspondence touches all the bases, a full discussion of all the consequences of this terrible conclusion."

FWIW, correspondence between Morrissey and Salandria posted on the web was a crucial part of my early JFK assassination education (as late as 2002, I'm rather ashamed to say).

It played a crucial role in pushing me "off the fence" and concluding that conspiracy was evident - and that it was rather large.

Crucially, it helped me come to the conclusion that the best-known progressive skeptics - notably Chomsky - had not been playing the role of disinterested intellectuals.

They both write well. One has a sense of intelligent and honest men groping for the truth. At $2.50 the download is well-priced.

Vincent Salandria is one of the best JFK assassination analysts/researchers of all time. Salandria will tell you up front the JFK assassination was a military/CIA coup d'etat and give you the reasons why. The only difference I have with him is that he does not emphasize the critical role of Lyndon Johnson and his Texas oil men Clint Murchison, Sr. and H.L. Hunt in the JFK assassination. LBJ and the Texas oil barons were highly connected with CIA and high levels of U.S. military.

Having said that, ANYTHING that Vincent Salandria writes about the JFK assassination is a MUST-READ. Salandria brings high octane intellectual firepower to the table.

I am reading "Correspondence with Vincent Salandria" right now and it is FANTASTIC. It is a must read for JFK researchers:

http://www.amazon.com/Correspondence-Vincent-Salandria-Michael-Morrissey/dp/1430326646/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1305777674&sr=1-1

The other blue chip book to get is History Will Not Absolve Us by Martin Schotz; that also has a lot of Salandria in it.

Just one example from Correspondence:

Vincent Salandria 10/18/99: the national security state murdered John Kennedy

"VS (10/18/99)

John, you now have me right. I mean and have always meant literally that national security state killed Kennedy just as it killed other popular leaders here and in other countries. Yes, I mean that your position is not discernibly different from the position which will now be put in the forefront by witting and unwitting agents of the state. They will get the attention of the U.S. media.

Please, John, reread my speech in Dallas. I left no doubt there as to whom I thought ordered the killing of Kennedy, arranged for the cover-up and continues to operate as our rulers. Please tell me how each of the following matters could have transpired without the defense Establishment from its very top giving directions?

• Killing Oswald.

• Using a CIA agent as a patsy with full knowledge that the CIA would not take umbrage.

• Silencing of the left, the ACLU, all of the liberals.

• Spreading of false clues pointing to the Soviets and Cuba as the killers while exculpating them from blame by offering them a single-assassin, no policy-significant alternative to the truth.

• Ignoring overwhelming evidence of more than one gunman and getting the press to play along with the single-assassin fantasy.

• Relying on a single-assassin concept which defied physical laws.

• Framing the Mafia.

• Impersonating Secret Service Agents at the scene of the killing.

• Contradicting all of the Parkland Hospital doctors’ findings of an evulsive back of the head wound and wound of entry in the neck.

• Ignoring clear and conclusive evidence of the hole in Kennedy’s shirt and coat which put the lie to the single bullet story.

• Autopsy doctors accepting the orders of the generals and admirals not to resect the neck and back wounds, thereby aborting the autopsy.

• Commander Humes burning the autopsy notes in his home most certainly under orders from above.

• The censorship of the Zapruder film for so many years.

• Foreclosing the Commission examining the x-rays and photographs of the Kennedy body.

• The refusal from the beginning and continuing today to acknowledge what the Zapruder film plainly shows in terms of a multiple assassin killing.

• Getting Life magazine to lie about Kennedy turning around when he had not.

• Getting Life magazine to change a single issue twice in order to conceal a hit on JFK from the front right.

• Massive criminality having been committed in obstructing justice by Bundy, Rankin, Specter, Warren, Katzenbach, Dulles, Henry and Clair Booth Luce and so many more.

• Accepting CE 399 as anything other than a plant.

• Specter, instructing the public that we must rely on the “conclusions and the stature of the men on the Commission.”

• Instructing the presidential plane and Cabinet plane that there was no conspiracy and that Oswald acted alone when there was no evidence that Oswald was involved and enormous evidence of conspiracy.

• Removing the presidential limousine from the scene of the crime and refitting it with the consequent destruction of vital evidence.

• Deleting the wound testimony of Jackie Kennedy.

• Drying, cleaning and pressing the Connally clothing.

• Congress taking no action for years although every public opinion poll showed our public believed there was a conspiracy.

• Katzenbach instructing the Chief Justice to disclose that Oswald did it alone before he undertook his assigned his assigned job of determining what really happened.

• Dulles suborning Marina to perjury.

• Clair Booth Luce misleading Gaeton Fonzi, who was an agent of Congress.

• Appointing Dulles to the Commission.

• Not prosecuting the Paines.

• Continuation today of the media acting like obedient lap dog to the military Establishment by turning a blind eye to the navy’s shooting down of TWA Flight 800.

• The media buying into the “accidental” bombing of the Chinese embassy in Belgrade.

John, there is no business like chauvinism"

From Correspondence with Vincent Salandria 1993-2000 by Michael D Morrissey. The following is an excerpt from a letter written by Vince Salandria on February 4, 1994 and shared with the correspondents in the group

.....In his January 23 letter Marty (Schotz) strongly disagrees with my thinking about the value of Dealey Plaza evidence immediately following the assassination. My interest in this evidence stems from my conviction that evidence of conspiracy that appeared immediately in Dealey Plaza, no matter how mistaken, could not have been dismissed by an innocent government at the time. The fact that enormous amounts of evidence of a conspiracy that confronted the world at Dealey Plaza was ignored, rejected and dismissed by the authorities proves the guilt of the U.S. government at the highest levels. An innocent government would have had to hold its options open. That's the way all bureaucracies work, all of them. Only a guilty government would have foreclosed a conspiracy immediately after the assassination given the eyewitness testimony, the Secret Service agents' affadavits, the Zapruder film, the Nix and Muchmore film, the Altgens photo of what we are asked to believe was Lovelady, the propulsion of the President's body, the ejection of blood, brains and skull fragments as a consequence of bullet impacts, the wound of Tague, the wounds of Governor Connally, the smell of gunpowder on ground level, the number of shots heard, the account of Holland and others of what they saw behind the picket fence, the reports of bullet fragments at the scene, the damage to the presidential limousine after the first shots and so much more. Marty, I respectfully and lovingly disagree with you on this subject.

In that same letter Salandria also mentioned EF member Jim DiEugenio:

....Enclosed is a letter to me from Jim DiEugenio about the Paines. I will, by way of answer, send him a copy of this letter without the enclosures. Jim, I don't know whether or not Shirley Martin is still alive. I did visit the Paines in August of 1965 with Shirley. Of course the Paines are federal agents. But Shirley never advised me she was of that opinion. We were close friends until the visit with the Paines. Then, on the way back to her home in Oklahoma she acted hostile to me. That was it for the relationship.

Note to any moderators that may be reading this: There are a number of Salandria posts on the McAdams thread. Several members have mentioned that those posts would be more appropriate if they were in this thread.

Any help in that regard would be appreciated.

I agree, please move the Salandria posts over here. Of course, I posted several of them.

Having said that anyone wanting to learn about John McAdams and how fantastically flawed his theories are would learn that quickly by reading Salandria.
