Carlos Marcello Wiretap Sessions


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Have not been on here in awhile, I was scanning through Merry Ferrell site and found this taped conversation between Carlos Marcello and Clarence Greco interesting.

Here is the link - http://www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/...mp;relPageId=85

Pages 84-86.

There is a reference to SHONTO on page 85.

It was interesting to hear Greco call Garrison "an advocate of yours". IMO, it never made sense that Garrison would want to indict Ferrie without going after Marcello too. And in fact, in his prison confession, Marcello stated that Ferrie introduced him to Oswald. But Marcello owned a lot of the cops and officials in N.O. I guess Garrison was just one of them.

And I can't help but suspect that the coroner who ruled that Ferrie's death was by "natural causes", was too.

How come they made a transcript, so we don't have to listen to it and make a transcript ourselves, like we had to do with McMahon? That's really nice of them.

From where I'm sitting I have a few comments on this, and I hope you don't mind if I elaboratate on it a little bit.

It must be taken for granted that in order for organized criminals to operate, certain law enforcement officers, cops, DAs and Judges are on the take, owned by the mob, and just like there's a mayor, there's a crime boss for every town and city.

Two areas the mob must control are the county sheriff and the district attorney who runs the Grand Juries, both legal concepts incorporated into the US Constitution from English law.

While the organized structure of the national syndicate of organized crime in the US began with booze, it became solidified with gambling, and the drugs, prostitution, loan sharking and other illegal racketts came with the territory. They had to be organized to distribute the booze, but they became solidified nationaly as a syndicate because of gambling and the ability and need to lay off bets as a kind of insurance.

Not all cops were/are bad coppers, but the mobsters knew who would take a bribe, and they were known as the "Right" coppers, while those who wouldn't take a bribe were the "wrong" coppers.

I don't know if Joe Cody was a Right cop or a wrong cop but he was pals with the Campisi brothers and once told a TV camera (I think it was Frontline) that he talked on the phone with Carlos Marcello from the office phone of Campisi's Egyptian Lounge.

If you believe Beverly Oliver (I do) and Ruby visited the Egyptian Lounge on the night before the assassination with Larry Meyers (and not Ralph Paul as the Warren Commission reports), she relates how Ruby and Meyers went into the back office in order to make a phone call.

Just as the Chicago mob ruled over Vegas and LA, and the Tampa mob ran Cuba, Dallas was considered under the nominal mob control of New Orleans' boss Marcello.

The tapped phone conversations from the Garrison era are interesting, but they probably tapped Campisi's office phone, or at least got the records of who was called from that phone, and that's the records that you really want to find. And I believe they exist.

Just as the Sheriff of the County in Texas where Henry Marshall was killed helped cover up that crime, the Kehavfer Committee testimony of the Florida sheriff (Boward County) where Lansky operated his casinos explains a lot, as does Dallas Sheriff Bill Decker.

There were fifty Sheriff's officers in Dealey Plaza at the time of the assassination, and they were the first to the Grassy Knoll and the first inside the TSBD, and yet the real assassins, and the Patsy escaped.

According to Sly Hersh in the Darkside of Camelot, JFK won the West Virginia primary over Hubert Humphrey because Skinny D'Amato took a suitcase of cash to distribue to the County Sherriffs, who he knew personally from their annual convention in Atlatnic City. The sheriffs, who not only control the jails and the courts, also control the voting machines.

So when you're talking about organized crime and corrupt law enforcement, they go hand in hand.

And when you are talking about the government's wiretaps of organized crime and the assassination of JFK, you want to look for the tapes and transcripts of Campisi's Egyptian Lounge office phone and the Town & Country in New Orleans.
