Angus Mackenzie: Died aged 43.


Recommended Posts

While researching Operation Mockingbird I came across the case of Angus Mackenzie. It is an interesting story that JFK researchers might not be aware of.

Angus Mackenzie worked as an investigative journalist and had articles published in Rolling Stone, Mother Jones, Washington Post, San Francisco Examiner and the Columbia Journalism Review. During his short career he won or shared over two dozen journalism awards, including the National Magazine Award.

Mackenzie also taught at the School of Journalism at the University of California. Along with David Weir he was a co-founder of the Center for Investigative Reporting, where he managed contracts with 60 Minutes, 20/20, CNN, CBS News, ABC News, and many other outlets.

Mackenzie was particularly interested in the covert activities of the Central Intelligence Agency. Over many years he accumulated evidence of the CIA's systematic efforts to suppress and censor information. Mackenzie discovered that this covert operations originated during the Cold War as the CIA instituted programs of domestic surveillance and agent provocateur activities. This included infiltrating organizations to setting up CIA-front student groups.

Angus Mackenzie died on 13th May, 1994. He was aged only 43. The manuscript he had been working on for fifteen years was completed and edited by his friends. Secrets: The CIA's War at Home, was published in 1998.

The book is well worth buying. You can read sections of the book here:

Interesting. Let me guess, he committed "suicide" by firing a shotgun in his mouth?

I'm betting it's a fishing accident.

Angus MacKenzie died of brain cancer.

James

The Rajneesh or "OSHO" the cult leader died of brain cancer after the political ascendency of his free love Hindu naming cult in Oregon.

It is suspected that a heavy metal, a radioactive isotope, was introduced into his food or water. Similar scenarios are commonly spun around the death of Jack Ruby.

Possibly Mr. Angus McKenzie fell prey to the environmental toxins released by the corporations who host CIA cover agents worldwide, benzene, perhaps, or carbon tetrachloride....however he passed on, it was a life well spent.
