Play Part One Interview - Jim DiEugenio

A command performance of hypocrisy, contradiction, and rank disinformation. Take a bow, Jim, it was a performance worthy of, well, John McAdams.

It gets funky approx 44 and a half minutes in, when DiEugenio introduces the subject by reference to, yes, William Cooper, whom he promptly denounces as a CIA asset bent on corrupting impressionable minds with a murky copy of the Z fake (version 2). The impression duly left with the uninformed listener that Cooper pioneered the theory, it’s off to the races with a melange of nonsense which repays close examination. But first up the choice of Cooper:

In a posting on the DPF in July last year, I wrote as follows:

Discrediting Secret Service complicity in the elimination of JFK…

Is a branch of assassination research which has attracted few takers. This is curious, because the transparency of the campaign offers easy pickings. If one wants them, of course. Here’s one blogger who plainly doesn’t:

http://aangirfan.blogspot.com/2009/07/disi...ers-behold.html

“Aangirfan” fails to mention that Milton William Cooper’s Behold a Pale Horse (Flagstaff, Arizona: Light Technology Publishing, 1991) had in its sights one particular theory of “the how” – that William Greer, the driver of the presidential limousine, was responsible. A startling omission, as will become clear, for here is Cooper doing precisely that: “At some point President Kennedy discovered portions of the truth concerning drugs and aliens…[Kennedy] was murdered by the Secret Service agent who drove his car in the motorcade and the act is plainly visible in the Zapruder film…,” p.215. So, the fake film proves it, does it? Of course not, for the film bears little or no resemblance to what actually happened on Elm.

Three chapters later, we are in to “Protocols of the Wise Men of Zion” territory. By astonishing coincidence, David Icke employed much the same admixture in his disinformational farrago, Robot’s Rebellion: The Story of the Turquoise Tracksuit Renaissance (Bath, UK: Gateway Books, 1994), published three years later.

Coincidence? Or a co-ordinated campaign on both sides of the Atlantic?

One important clue lies in what happened next: Those intent upon discrediting the notion of Greer’s role as assassin sought to rewrite the history of the assertion. Despite the fact that it had first been set out in detail as long ago as 1974, in Newcomb and Adams’ Murder From Within (Santa Barbara, California: Probe), a succession of researchers who knew this to be the case began producing essays and web postings which invited the uniformed to believe that Cooper, writing seventeen years later, was the pioneer. And as Cooper (and/or Icke) also promulgated a host of absurdities, the curious were to be frightened off the scent.

A text-book piece of spook work.

The moral of the tale? The next time you see a veteran researcher pretending that William Cooper and David Icke set the Greer-did-it in motion, you’ve just met a xxxx.

Now, should DiEugenio wish to leave uncorrected the entirely false impression that Cooper the asset pioneered the idea of Secret Service responsibility for killing Kennedy, then we know exactly where DiEugenio is coming from.

To the extent that Jim Di Eugenio has suggested (via intermediaries) on this forum that I am an agent of disinformation, then he is no friend of mine.

But the FACT that Greer [DELIBERATELY] slowed the limo to facilitate the assassination seems to be a FACT that Mr. Rigby would like to distract everybody's attention away from.

Quite right, Jay, it's a very sophiticated disinfo project, which I round off by insisting that Greer then proceeded to shot his President. That's some "distraction"! The real genius of the scheme lies in its utilisation of contemporaneous eyewitness accounts ignored or misrepresented by advocates of both grassy knoll and TSBD gunmen for the better part of half a century. Clever, no?

Then again, it could just be the truth, and the campaign against it the work of two horses - the knollers and the OCT advocates - from the same stable.

On the related subject of DiEugenio and his Black Op radio rant against the pro-alterationists, note the wretched hypocrisy of DiEugenio denouncing this forum, in language plainly designed to invite comparison with the McAdams "pig-pen," for carrying threads attacking Thompson as an agent of disinformation.

The rant blithely ignored DiEugenio's own denunciation of various CIA penetrations of the research community, and the fact that Thompson was used by the CIA to denounce Garrison, of whom DiEugenio is supposed to be a keen supporter, in late 1967 and thereafter. DiEugenio would appear intent upon drawing a veil over this aspect of Thompson's promo campaign in support of SSID - why?

Hypocrisy? Thy name is DiEugenio.

the fact that Thompson was used by the CIA to denounce Garrison,

Sylvia Meagher was the first major Warren critic to denounce Garrison. Was Sylvia a CIA asset also?

And Harold Weisberg? and David Lifton?

Really, Jay, this the best you could come up with? Have another 24 hours to do better.

In the meantime, here's one for you. In the course of his preposterous anti-alterationist tirade, the great one insists not a single witness reported seeing guns in the hands of yer man Greer.

True or false?
