Question For Robert Morrow


Recommended Posts

Robert:

In your review of Joseph McBride's book you wrote

I didn't see the KGB's fingering of LBJ as a perp in this book either. That came out in a Hoover memo from the ARRB in the 1996.

Robert: Can you tell us more about this Hoover memo. I don't remember hearing about this before.

This Hoover memo came out with the ARRB in 1996. Hoover wrote it on 12/1/66 and it contained information from September, 1965. Hoover wrote it to LBJ and copied the leadership of the FBI. The FBI had a spy, an informant, inside the KGB residency in NYC. It was a human source, not electronic surveillance. From the very beginning the Soviets were saying hard right Texas oil executives, some of LBJ's inner circle, were behind the JFK assassination.

Interesting this is the exact same time period that Mark Lane's book Rush to Judgment is shelling the Warren Report and the same time Jim Garrison is making early moves to re-open the JFK investigation in New Orleans.

BY LATE 1965 THE KGB HAD CONCLUDED LYNDON JOHNSON WAS BEHIND THE JFK ASSASSINATION

By September 16, 1965, the Soviet KGB had concluded that Lyndon Johnson was responsible for the JFK assassination. On 12/1/66 J. Edgar Hoover sent a memo to LBJ which stated:

"On September 16, 1965, this same source reported that the KGB Residency in New York City received instructions approximately September 16, 1965, from KGB headquarters in Moscow to develop all possible information concerning President Lyndon B. Johnson's character, background, personal friends, family, and from which quarters he derives his support in his position as President of the United States. Our source added that in the instructions from Moscow, it was indicated that "now" the KGB was in possession of data purporting to indicate President Johnson was responsible for the assassination of the late President John F. Kennedy. KGB headquarters indicated that in view of this information, it was necessary for the Soviet Government to know the existing personal relationship between President Johnson and the Kennedy family, particularly between President Johnson and Robert and "Ted" Kennedy."
