John Simkin Posted January 24, 2005 Share Posted January 24, 2005 In her book Personal History (1997) Katharine Graham admits that her husband Philip Graham, persuaded JFK to appoint C. Douglas Dillon as Secretary of the Treasury. This was a strange request. Dillon was a major contributor to the Republican Party. As Graham was CIA (Operation Mockingbird) can anyone explain why this organization wanted him as Secretary of the Treasury? The other person Graham wanted was David Bruce, as ambassador to London. He held the post throughout JFK's time in office. He also supplied JFK with regular reports on the John Profumo scandal that eventually brought down the UK government. http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/JFKdillonD.htm http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/JFKmockingbird.htm Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
