CIA Confesses to Kennedy Assassination

Excerpts from Fatal Rebirth,with commentary

A Feral House Book by H. Michael Sweeney

Copyright © 1997 - All rights reserved

Note: A lot of good people have spent decades chasing after an elusive and

fragmented truth with respect to the JFK assassination. Most of them have

earned only scorn and name calling as "conspiracy buffs" or "conspiracy

theorists" by media and other government disinformation resources. Many of

them continue today without knowledge that the truth has largely been

admitted by the group responsible. Many of the consipracy hunters have been

vendicated, while others still search in hopes of that "smoking gun." But

what better smoking gun than a confession? It is now time to seek to go

beyond JFK as far as wrestling with the various conspiracy theories. There is

no need to waste energy there. There are now bigger questions to ask.

JFK died for a reason. The gunmen that pulled the trigger are nothing more

than the extension of a greater unseen power, a power with the motive.

Cracking that is where I would suggest your efforts should turn next --

instead of making/defending the many alternative theories as to who did the

deed itself (though some names are not yet known, and other names, like Bush,

need more concrete ties drawn). Who did it is visible, who directed and who

ordered them to do it, is less visible -- though their shimmering form can be

seen and seems to be firming up.

Take the trail to the the Three and Five "I"s, being careful to avoid the

false leads suggesting they refer to the identities of Permindex, Division

Five, American Council of Christian Churches, the Solidarists, and DISC.

There are connections between the two assassinated Kennedys that are so

ironic as exceed the Greek tragedies. Go back to square one to the formation

of OSS/CIA Follow the money from there forward. Remember: "The fascists are

coming.". If you know what a fascist is... you know what an elitist is... you

know what a globalist is...

You might also ask: If CIA (or anyone) were to undertake an assassination of

an American President (or anyone else), would not they lay careful

contingency plans? What plan would they make for it going completely wrong,

and blame coming back to Langley? How would they survive the public wrath had

the media known and published the truth in '64 instead of publishing the

Warren Commission?

The answer is a secret CIA within CIA (Shadow), one able to operate on its

own infrastructure, and able to fund its own way through crime. Should

Langley die, CIA would survive, but completely invisible and free of

government oversight -- something that might eventually be better for dark

deeds than having CIA In fact, it might even explain why CIA is willing to

expose itself to the JFK noose at this time: Shadow may well be fully

prepared to replace CIA today. If such a thing as Shadow were to exist, what

would it look like and do? The answer just might be the history since Kennedy

(both history perceived through media filters and the reality of hidden

truths behind the headlines), which can be expressed in oversimplified math,

a math which some may not understand:

U2 + Lee Oswald = neutering of Ike; 40 + 40 + 40 = death of Camelot; Vietnam

+ Tonkin = Asian drug supply; Robert Vesco + Nugan Hand = financial

superstructure; Langley - proprietaries being disbanded = infrastructure

(free of congressional oversight); Watergate + 5 Break Ins = Assassination of

Nixon; Paisley "murder" + Bush = CIA purge (freeing agents for insertion into

public sector and segregating agents by loyalties); War on Drugs = South

American drug supply; MK-ULTRA/Artichoke + Cult Awareness Network = RFK (and

more, including Jones Town and Waco); METC UNIT = WTC, OK, and perhaps even

flight 800; Evergreen + Gordon's = Orange shipments (capable of producing two

kinds of highs); NSA + Clipper/Chipper = NRO in every home; Iran/Contra +

Bush/Secord = Lockerbee; CFR + Trilateral Commission = Secret Government; LEA

+ NIA = In-place assets, Liddy Institute; Ingram + BR Fox = Offshore Murder,

Inc. Arms Supply; ADL + B'nai Brith + CIA + Law Enforcement = Networking spy

data on American Citizens; Media + CIA = Reuters, K. Graham, Time-Warner,

CBS, Hilton Knowles and the rest; and I think I had better stop because I'm

bound to have made enough enemies already or tossed out more than you care to

consider, anyway. These are some of the things we discuss in our Group -- the

greater issue of the war at hand, not just one lost battle in 1963.

Enough food for thought -- here is the post from the CIA news group. Be

warned, however, that I have already had comment from CIA apologists who have

been attacking this material for years by use of the 25 methods for combating

the truth (variants on misdirection, confusion, non-logic logic,

disinformation, disparaging attacks on sources, and so forth), and they are

well prepared to use their arguments on you. Should you be unprepared to deal

with the trickery of their non-arguments, just ask two questions of them when

they do -- and they must wither away. If there are any better confessions

from other sources out there, where are they (can they provide an alternative

conclusion with better credentials -- or are they just attacking this one)?

In absence of other officious proofs, why do they try so hard to destroy this

one? Know your enemy by their actions.

CIA Confesses to Kennedy Assassination

Trial Testimony by Deposition Under Oath of CIA agent Marita Lorenz

From the Defamation Trial of E. Howard Hunt vs. Liberty Lobby

United States District Court for Southern District of Florida, January 1985

What follows is the ultimate indictment of E. Howard Hunt and other Operation

40 CIA (AKA Operation Zapata, AKA Bay of Pigs Invasion) agents for the murder

of John Kennedy. That not one media representative present at the trial dared

print a single word indicts media as being Shadow controlled. That this same

testimony was given to FBI within days of the assassination is an indictment

of the Justice Department as being Shadow controlled. That the judge

presiding over the trial did not order follow-up investigation or indictments

for murder is an indictment of the court system as being Shadow controlled.

That the same testimony was given the Rockefeller Commission

(CFR/Bilderberger/TriLateralist) House Select Committee on Assassinations and

nothing was done with the information is an indictment of Congressional

oversight as being Shadow controlled.

Beyond the virtual confession, it is clear that what is taking place here is

that CIA (not only by virtue of the testimony, but also by virtue of CIA

directed cross questioning by defense which seemed deliberately designed to

maximize damage and bring out the facts) is hanging Hunt and select other CIA

out to dry, "twisting in the wind". This is likely a means of neutralizing

and punishing him for his blackmail of CIA -- a move made safer by virtue of

having captured the cartons of evidence from flight 553 after its "crash" on

schedule and on target where 50 "FBI" agents awaited it (a grand conspiracy

worthy of further investigation on its own right).

I strongly suggest you read Mark Lane's chilling work, Plausible Denial, from

which this material was first made


Note <commercial plug>: Shadow is this author's name for what Daniel Sheenan

of the Christic Institute describes as the Secret Team, those elements of CIA

and the military-industrial-intelligence complex which seek to serve an

agenda other than national security. Shadow is the central villian in Fatal

Rebirth, a prophetic glimpse of what lies ahead based on the revelations of

the would-be secret past -- with over 500 foot notes and an Appendix section

which is itself book sized. Fatal Rebirth was born amid a 007 adventure

forced on the author when he came into possession of a document someone in

the intelligence world took strong exception to -- a document detailing many

sins of intel and their true masters within the secret government. Analysis

and investigation was undertaken in self defense, an effort soon joined by

several former intel operatives and at least one "Deep Throat" from within

the enemy camp. This revealed much about who and why, and provided the puzzle

pieces needed to make sence of it all. Publisher interest welcomed. <end of

A. No.

Cross Examination to follow. Note: According to Liberty Lobby lawyer, Mark

Lane, Lorenze had confided outside of testimony that she got out of Dallas

quickly because "I knew that this was different from other jobs. This was not

just gun running. This was big, very big, and I wanted to get out. I told

Sturgis I wanted to leave. He said it was a very big operation but that my

part was not dangerous. I was to be a decoy. Before he could go further, I

said please let me get out. I want to go back to my baby in Miami. Finally he

agreed and drove me to the airport." She further stated she would not reveal

the names of others in the cars going to Dallas because "They killed Kennedy.

I don't want to be the one to reveal their names; it's too dangerous."

However, it would seem apparent that perhaps the agency no longer wished to

provide Hunt with any level of protection -- perhaps because they did not

like being blackmailed. The evidence for this conclusion lies in the

additional information volunteered during cross examination which Mark Lane

was unable to obtain himself. Since Lorenz had been coached by CIA council

who also worked with Hunt's CIA sponsored council, it would appear that

perhaps the CIA vested interest council was working against Hunt, rather than

for him. In fact, Hunt's whole problem of being accused of being in Dallas

surfaced only because former CIA agent Victor Marchetti claimed in 1978 Hunt

was in Dallas and Liberty Lobby dared to publish the story. As you read, note

how both the lawyer and Lorenz tend to volunteer or bring out information

more than called for, and how nothing in the cross examination aids the

defense or nullifies earlier testimony. Defense would have been better off

not to challenge the witness. It would seem a deliberate confession.

It should also be pointed out that Lorenz says she was inducted into CIA in

1959, and that apparently she and Frank Sturgis worked together early on --

suggesting that even when she was supposedly working for the New York Police

Department and the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration). If true, this would

make her and Sturgis illegal in-place CIA operatives within the DEA and NYPD

-- likely working under CIA Operation Phoenix assassin king, Lou Conein

(founding leader of DEA), to help eliminate drug lords not under CIA control

or being supplied by CIA, and to protect CIA conduits and suppliers, the true

purpose of the "War on Drugs".

Transcript continues:

discussing things.

Q. Who did you believe he was working for at that time?


Q. Why?

Note: Portions of testimony were compressed at this point by Mark Lane in

order to make a particular point. Liberty is taken here to represent it as

faithfully as possible to his description without having to quote several

pages of his work. Please see Plausible Denial for the full story. Normal

transcript follows after this summary of combined answers.

A. Because we were all at that time CIA members of Operation 40. We had been

given instructions from Eduardo and

had certain rights and permissions to do things that the average citizen could

not do... I will tell you what is on record. I

stole secrets from Cuba... I was trained to kill. Anything else?

Normal transcript resumes:

undertook was to transport guns?

A. Yes.

Q. Was that for the anti-Cuba activities?

A. Yes, it was.

Q. What happened to those guns when you got to Dallas?

A. They were in the XX he car and I presume they took them to the motel the

net day, the next night. A lot of things they carried in.

Q. Where did you leave from?

A. From the house in Miami.

Q. Is that a CIA house?

A. A safe house. Yes.

Q. Did everyone meet at the same place?

A. Yes.

father and they picked me up and took me to the office.

Q. What day would that have been?

A. A few days after I arrived, after everyone got over the initial shock.

Q. It would be some time in the month of November of 1963?

A. Yes.

Q. In your discussions with the FBI, they inquired about your activities which

related to Dallas and this group of seven

people that took the car trip?

A. Well, they discussed my associates down there and my relationship with my

daughter's father, mostly.

Q Did they know the names of the people you took the car trip with, from Miami

to Dallas?

A. Yes.

Q. Did they ask you about each of those people?

A. Yes.

Q. Did you tell them about the guns and money and about Eduardo?

A. Yes.

Q. I will have to start again because the court reporter cannot take nods


A. I was nodding, yes, to each.

Q. What was your answer?

A. They asked me about everything, my daughter's father, and I am glad I am

back up here away from that.

Q. You told them about Eduardo?

A. Yes.

Q. And the guns?

A. They know about all those associations. They didn't want to go into it.

Those were CIA activities, not FBI.
