Drew Pearson and the assassination of JFK


Recommended Posts

Guest Robert Morrow

READ THE FOLLOWING BELOW ... Whenever you see someone like mafia hitman and CIA asset Johnny Roselli float a story that it was CASTRO behind the assassination OR when you see CIA asset and assassin Frank Sturgis float stories that it was the RUSSIANS (!) behind the JFK assassination, YOU CAN BET DOLLARS TO DONUTS that both Roselli and Frank Sturgis were involved in the JFK assassination - that is how I read these CRUDE DISINFO attempts - see below:

In 1966 attempts were made to deport Johnny Roselli as an illegal alien. Roselli moved to Los Angeles where he went into early retirement. It was at this time he told attorney, Edward Morgan: "The last of the sniper teams dispatched by Robert Kennedy in 1963 to assassinate Fidel Castro were captured in Havana. Under torture they broke and confessed to being sponsored by the CIA and the US government. At that point, Castro remarked that, 'If that was the way President Kennedy wanted it, Cuba could engage in the same tactics'. The result was that Castro infiltrated teams of snipers into the US to kill Kennedy".

Morgan took the story to Pearson. The story was then passed on to Earl Warren. He did not want anything to do with it and so the information was then passed to the FBI. When they failed to investigate the story Jack Anderson wrote an article entitled "President Johnson is sitting on a political H-bomb" about Roselli's story. It has been suggested that Roselli started this story at the request of his friends in the Central Intelligence Agency in order to divert attention from the investigation being carried out by Jim Garrison.

"In late November (1940) he [Drew Pearson] prepared for Rockefeller a confidential memorandum on American diplomats in South America. The memo went down the list of prinfipal envoys, country by country , with Pearson offering pithy comments about each man. (Ambassador to Medico Josephus Daniels was "too kindly to be effective and rather difficult to work with "; John Muccio, first secretary in Peru, was a "hard drinker and all that goes with it"; Claude Bowers, ambassador to Chile, "doesn't work any too hard at the job but is one of the best of the political appointees")

It was the sort of inside information to which Washington newcomers rarely had access. The possession of such a memo showed just how far from "collegiate" Rockefeller really was. "-- Carry Reich, The Life of Nelson A. Rockefeller, p. 194

I found this meeting btw Pearson and Nelson interesting, given it was just as he was about to assume huge responsibilities over Latin American intelligence in 1940. Rockefeller was working closely with Nitze and Forrestal at this time. Having recently read some of Drew Pearson's Diaries from the 1949 50 period, I was not very impressed. His observations seem much less frank or brave than the diaries of Schlessinger. Reich implies that the ties between Pearson and Rockefeller lasted for a long time. I find this interesting from the perspective of Nelson Rockefeller's background in Latin America during WWII and the JFK Assassination.

I have recently doing some research on Princess Stephanie von Hohenlohe. In the 1930s she was a close intimate of Hitler (they were not lovers - Stephanie thought he was homosexual). Although the Gestapo told Hitler that Priness Stephanie was Jewish he continued his relationship with her. Hitler had used Stephanie to get support for his government from the ruling elite in Britain (she was the lover of Lord Rothermere, the main press baron in the 1930s and a strong supporter of Hitler).

Anyway, she fled to the United States after the outbreak of war in 1939. She made contact with Drew Pearson and the plan was to publish her memoirs. However, the British establishment was so powerful that her story about Nazis in Britain never appeared. J. Edgar Hoover had her interned and after the war she returned to Germany where she was paid large sums of money to arrange interviews with her many friends. This included John F. Kennedy's first interview with the German media.

During this period she still worked with Pearson. One of the interesting things she says about Pearson is that he was always very hostile to Kennedy. Maybe this explains why America's leading investigative journalist in 1963 decided to ignore the assassination and why his assistant, Jack Anderson, and American intelligence plant, was keen to muddy the waters of any investigation into the case.

Simkin: "During this period she still worked with Pearson. One of the interesting things she says about Pearson is that he was always very hostile to Kennedy.

Note:

1) Drew Pearson very hostile to JFK.

2) Drew Pearson close friends with and on great terms with Lyndon Johnson

3) Drew Pearson attacking Don Reynolds, the Bobby Baker associate, who had given critical testimony to the Senate Rules Commiittee about LBJ's rampant corruption, including saying he saw Baker with a suitcase of $100,000 in cash that was destined for LBJ for his part in securing TFX fighter contract for General Dynamics over Boeing.

So in the LBJ-Kennedy wars, it is clear which side Drew Pearson was on.
