About Norman Mailer

 In 1965 Norman Mailer reviewed Mark Lane's book Rush to Judgment and stated that "if even one-tenth of what he wrote proved to be true, then it raises the most profound questions about the United State government." For his later reversion, Mailer may be somewhat forgiven for the fact that the CIA unleashed Larry Schiller on him to direct and guide him in the production of much of his later works. Schiller, who was a contracted photojournalist to CIA Operation Mockingbird media, and who collaborated with CIA literary hack character assassin Albert Goldman, had done photo work on Marilyn Monroe shortly before her death. This, he used in directing Mailer to produce his book “Marilyn.” And following this, Schiller began to guide Mailer toward other projects.
Mailer's Village Voice review of Mark Lane’s Rush To Judgment represented the first dissenting voice from a major literary figure in America questioning the government’s Big Lie. To later counter that, Schiller made arrangements to set Mailer up to receive what were ostensibly selected declassified KGB files on Oswald, that radically altered the former leftist radical figure’s view of the alleged assassin. Now, under Schiller’s direction, he became convinced of Oswald’s culpability. Schiller was instrumental in directing Mailer toward projects consistent with CIA ops and social engineering, literary projects like The Executioner’s Song, Oswald’s Tale, Harlot’s Ghost, etc. Ultimately, via Schiller, Mailer even accepted a CIA invitation to appear at CIA headquarters in Langley, and do a presentation of his works involving the agency.
One only has to review Schiller’s work to recognize his role in socio-political mass engineering: material supplier to the biopic Lenny, on the life and death of social critic Lenny Bruce; Marilyn & Me, a photo and literary work on Monroe, who also died from an alleged drug overdose (produced with Mailer); his coverage of the counter-culture scene in a major photojournalist Life Magazine piece and subsequent book on hippies and the use of LSD (which the CIA had tried to corner the market on as early as 1947); the “nonfiction novel” on killer Gary Gilmore (a recidivist criminal incarcerated and treated by psychiatrists during the time of the CIA’s MKULTRA programming of prisoners, who, following his release, became a multiple murderer); a book on the Sharon Tate mass murders (a CIA MKULTRA op), a book on Master Spy Robert P. Hanssen; a Book on the strange unsolved murder of Jon Benet Ramsey; a book on the O.J. Simpson murder trial; a music video with Kris Kardashian, and most notably, his 1977 pet project (during the time of government exposes on CIA assassination plots and the HSCA hearings into the JFK Assassination), the TV blockbuster, The Trial of Lee Harvey Oswald, which Schiller produced.
It is fairly safe to assume that these chosen projects were not randomly chosen by Lawrence Schiller, but rather carefully selected literary, photo, and film projects designed to socially engineer the American public to accept the Deep State’s interpretation of reality, rather than revelations of its nefarious CIA ops. Mailer, suckered in by Schiller’s relationship with Monroe, his ingratiating manner, and extensive and beneficial contacts that so aided in the development of Mailer’s literary projects, never suspected the true nature of this agent’s role.
An ulterior motivation in Mailer compromising himself was his desperate desire to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature, which had been denied him, doubtless owing to his 1960 penknife attack on his wife that landed him in Bellevue for mental observation. That episode followed a CIA campaign to destroy the signers of a full page ad in the NY Times supporting the Fair Play for Cuba Committee, the New York chapter from which Oswald ostensibly received his membership.
It is no accident that, following Mailer’s death in 2008, Schiller has become Senior Advisor to the Norman Mailer Estate, Managing Director of The Norman Mailer Center, in New York, NY, represents the Norman Mailer Licensing company, and serves on the Executive Board of the Norman Mailer Society.
