In April 1961 Gen Edwin walker was fired from his post by President Kennedy. He was accused of encouraging far right wing elements within his command, and distributing JBS/KKK propaganda to the troops, he was, at this time, a member of both the JBS, and the KKK. Senators including Albert Gore ® suspected that Chief of staff Lemnitzer was was also involved with Walkers extremist right wing beliefs.

Lemnitzer was a secret op expert, who was heavily involved with the allies "stay behind network" Its work included recruiting ex Nazi agents to help fight against the Soviet union, and help war criminals escape justice by arranging flights to, and bolt holes in Latin America, later to enter the US by the back door. Recently published correspondance by Lemnitzer showed that he, and other high ranking officers, including Curtis Lemay, were conspiring against JFK,s policys in particular his refusal tto involve the US army in Cuba following the BOP fiasco, they accused kennedy of being a coward for refussing airforce support for the Cuban counter-revolutinaries. It was a direct consiquence of this thinking that Op northwoods was concieved, this was of course rejected root and branch by Robert McNamara which, to put it mildly graetly upset Lemnitzer, and the plans main architect Gen William H Craig. This provoked a six months stand off between the Kennedy administration, and the Joint chiefs of staff, after which Lemnitzer was dispatched to Europe as head of American forces. Before leaving he ordered all copies of the Nortwoods document to be destroyed, but unknown to him McNamara had kept his copy of the secret report, which only surfaced decades later.

To JFK Lemnitzer was a hysterical, and extremist anti-Communist, backed up by unscrupulous multi national companys. "ONLY THE PROPER SURVEILLANCE, AND AWARENESS CAN GUARANTEE THE BALLANCE BETWEEN THE LOBBY OF THE HUGE INDUSTRIAL, AND MILITARY MACHINERY WE HAVE DEVELOPED, AND OUR PACIFIC METHODS, AND OBJECTIVES. SO THAT SECURITY AND FREEDOM CAN WORK TOGETHER".

PRESIDENT EISENHOWER, FAREWELL ADRESS.

John F Kennedy opposed Generals Walker, Lemnitzer and powerful supporters, and refused to involve America in a covert war against Communism in Cuba, Laos and Vietnam.

Stephen along the lines of your connecting Lemnitzers role with the stay behinds (that later became involved in the domestic use of state-terror for political reasons) and his role with Operation Northwoods is this from

the Swiss historian Steven Ganser's essay "The Strategy of Tension in the Cold War Period" in the new David Ray Griffin Peter Dale Scott edited book 9/11 and American Empire: Intellectuals speak out":

Lemnitzer...had been one of the senior officers sent to negotiate the Italian surrender in 1943

and the german surrender in 1945. After fighting in Korea, he became , in 1960 chairman of the

JCS. Following the CIA's failed Bay of Pigs invasion in 1961, leading generals in the Pentagon,

including Lemnitzer, argued that strategy of tension techniques should be used against the

US population in order to create a pretect for war....Operation Northwoods

I found the direct reference to strategy of tension stuff with Op Northwoods interesting. Any idea on who he worked with in Italy and Germany. What other Americans were working with him at the time?

I strongly recommend this essay by Ganser. It also mentions a french rightist by the name of

Yves Guerin-Serac who wrote about "Strategy of Tension" tactics. Does anyone know if he was involved in the

De Gaulle assassination attempts? Any known CIA connections to this guy. I think this strategy of tension history must be forcefully interjected into as many US websites as possible! This is no time to be bashfull about the Strategy of Tension.

- Operation Sunrise with Allen Dulles in Ascona, Switzerland, 1944. Dulles had represented numberous US companies doing business with Nazi Germany in the 30's and even into the early 40's (Standard Oil of New Jersey = Exxon). See bibliography for AfroCubaWeb's New Jersey and the Nazis
.

OPERATION SUNRISE

According to Col. Bo Gritz, former head of U.S. Army Special Forces for

Latin America, "General Reinhard Gehlen, Hitler's chief intelligence

officer against the Soviet Union, had struck a deal with the Americans

(Called OPERATION SUNRISE) that was not, for obvious reasons, released to

establishment media. The principal negotiators were Allen Dulles and

William Casey of the OSS, Sir William Stephenson for the British, and SS

General Karl Wolff, head of the Gestapo in Italy and former chief of

Heinrich Himmler's personal staff" (p. 562).

Operation SUNRISE developed into Operation OVERCAST with General Walter

Dornberger and Werner von Braun, and then became Project PAPERCLIP,

BLOODSTONE AND BELARUS, etc. (ibid.).

And Blowback.

Dulles, working with German companies 'even into the early 40s,' what a laugh.

No Paperclip - no assassination.

Nat, and Lee thanks for giving this thread cardiac massage, for a good timeline on operation sunrisetry hereI have long believed that Lemnitzer, LeMay and Dulles were the prime movers behind the assassination, of course the logistics would have been farmed out to cold warriors like Lansdale Robertson and Craig. The moment Kennedys proxy, Macnamara forced the JCS, and certain elements of the Cia to eat humble pie over Northwoods, was the moment that sealed the Presidents fate. The only thing that could have saved him was if he was facing certain defeat in 64.

The stay behind network was concieved by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and put into operation in 1948 by the National security council, staffed, and funded by the CIA. Ultimately coordination of the network took place under the auspices of NATO, it involved personnel from the official security sevices in each country, and received covert funding from industry, and the State. Funding, and support of such groups was one of the main tasks of the formed CIA, however members of the network were mainly recruited from the civilian population, noteably "Ex" fascists and others whose anti Communist credentials were unimpeachable, no matter what horrors they were responsible for during the war years.

The existance of the stay behind network was not a matter for public knowledge, however, the activities of the Italian branch-operation Gladio-was exposed in a sries of judicial investigations between 1990--1992.

Operation Gladio was set up in 1958, with help from the British intelligence (MI6) and the CIA. This assistance continued with the units being trained in Britain in the early 70s, and by the US, at a military base in the Canary Islands from 1966--mid 70s. Gladio had strong links with P2, a Fascist masonic lodge composed of top military officers, Political leaders, Industrialists, Bankers and Diplomats. P2 has, with good cause, been described as constituting a Fascist parallel Government in Italy.

Gladio was deeply involved in the so called "Strategy of tension" in the late 60s, and 70s. The aim ofm this stategy, of which the priciple tactic was "false flag terrorist outrages" carried oput by the fascists, was to spread panic, and fear within the general population, and to directly attack the Left and provoke them into an armed responce, which would both justify increased State power, under the pretext of a "National emergency", and isolate the Left from popular support(sound familiar?) In an early, but well known incident, a bomb was exploded in Dec 1969, at the Banca Nazionale Dell Agricoltura in Milan, Police, and Government officials immediately blamed, then arrested anarchists, but it later emerged that the real perpetrators were the Fascists Franco Freda and Giovanni Ventura.

Often unnoticed is that Lansdale wrote a memo of a 16 Mar 1962 meeting with President Kennedy and Lemnitzer, in which Lemnitzer brought up the Northwoods idea again (it had apparently been shot down by McNamara a few days earlier). According to the memo:

"General Lemnitzer commented that the military had contingency plans for U.S. intervention. Also, it had plans for creating plausible pretexts to use force, with the pretext either attacks on U.S. aircraft or a Cuban action in Latin America for which we would retaliate.

The President said bluntly that we were not discussing the use of U.S. military force, ..."

Regarding pretexts, it's also interesting that a cache of rifles allegedly supplied by the Cubans was found in Venezuela in late November 1963. Was this yet another staged part of the failing attempt to get a Cuban invasion out of the JFK assassination?

A Certain Arrogance

2006.... by George Michael Evica

Xlibris Corporation

www.Xlibris.com

Epilogue

<Quote>

A Certain Arrogance is a recitation of eight essays on the history of international

intelligence (primarily U.S. espionage), on Allen Dulles, John Foster Dulles, and their

manipulation of religious groups and individuals to achieve U.S.elitist goals, on the

development of U.S. psychological warfare operations, and on the sacrificing of Lee Harvey

Oswald in the assassination of John F Kennedy.

The Dulles Brothers

American Spymaster Allen Dulles, based in Switzerland, had abused religious individuals and

institutions for U.S. intelligence through two world wars and the subsequent "Cold-War." His

brother, John Foster Dulles also used major religious groups from 1937 to 1959 to further

both his own and the American establishment's political and economic goals.

Noel Field

One religious individual, Noel Field (American Quaker, Unitarian and Marxist) was used by

Allen Dulles to manipulate religious relief organizations in World War ll, and in the

post-war period Dulles finally utilized Field to help destabilize Communist Eastern Europe.

Dulles apparently collaborated in this plan with Jozef Swiatlo, a Communist, CIA double

agent, who later surfaced in the Warren Commission's Kennedy assassination investigation of

Lee Harvey Oswald.

Albert Schweitzer College, the Unitarians, and U.S. Intelligence

Swiss-based Albert Schweitzer College had major religious origins that were both social and

political. Post-war liberal Protestant movements in Europe, including the International

Association for Religious Freedom, helped to create the college in Switzerland, the country

at the center of Allen Dulles' fifty-year spy program. In the U.S. the college was supported

by a powerful coalition of American religious liberalism, primarily the Unitarian Church,

the Unitarian Service Committee, and the American Friends of Albert Schweitzer College.

Albert Schweitzer College's history strongly suggests that American espionage assets helped

establish the college and then used it, possibly with the knowledge and even cooperation of

some of it's supporters in the Unitarian Church movement and those who worked for the

college in Switzerland.

One leading Unitarian who worked closely with both U.S. intelligence and the military in the

40's and 50's was President of the American Friends of Albert Schweitzer College, exactly

when Lee Harvey Oswald applied. That same intelligence -connected Unitarian worked with a

second influential Unitarian to help control U.S. space programs, including the U.S.

overflights, and in the 60's, that intelligence -connected Unitarian fronted for a major CIA

proprietary. Those who set policy for Albert Schweitzer College were, therefore elite

members of the establishment and allies of the CIA,. In 1959, Lee Harvey Oswald registered

to attend Albert Schweitzer College and therefore became a direct link between the college

and American intelligence.

Whoever masterminded the Oswald college action was knowledgeable about both the OSS's and

the CIA's use of Quakers, officials of the World Council of Churches, and Unitarians as

contacts, assets, and informants (often as double- agents) AND about the FBI's

responsibility in tracking down and identifying Soviet illegal and double agents. Oswald

was, therefore, a creature of someone in American counter intelligence who possessed

precisely that double body of knowledge.

Oswald: the Imperfect Prospect

At the same time that the Albert Schweitzer College was extending its international

recruiting effort, both the Soviet and American Illegals and False Identity programs were

operating. For those espionage groups, Lee Harvey Oswald initially looked like a candidate

for their intelligence operations. But Oswald was an imperfect False Identity/Illegals

prospect. A faulty False Identity operation had apparently been carried out using Lee Harvey

Oswald and run by a branch of American intelligence.

Oswald's imperfections were certain to trip counterespionage alarm wires. The context of the

Oswald "legend" game was Switzerland, earlier the center of massive spy operations run by

Allen Dulles in two world wars and the following cold war.

Oswald had called maximum attention to his strange exit from the Marines, his dubious trip

to Europe, his suspicious registration to the Albert Schweitzer College, his failure to

arrive at the college, and his so-called defection to the Soviet Union. In a very short

time, Oswald pilled up obviously faulty documents and suspect postal communications. What

followed was a major FBI inquiry in 1959 and 1960 that apparently attempted to find then

missing Oswald. Oswald's Marine Corps record, including his Pacific duty experience and U-2

service, made him a prime candidate for Soviet civilian and military intelligence, and both

American and Soviet intelligence groups were aware of his candidacy.

Oswalds' espionage activities most probably included information he gave the Soviets

concerning U-2 flights, leading to the collapse of imminent Soviet/American peace talks. He

was also apparently scheduled to play a part in exposing Soviet intelligence moles in

activist student movements and liberal Protestant institutions like Albert Schweitzer

College in both Europe and the United States.

>From the moment Oswald registered to attend Unitarian sponsored Albert Schweitzer College,

and without ever setting foot in Switzerland, Oswald moved (or was moved) to the center of a

complex and dangerous double-agent operation.

Lee Harvey Oswald looked-possibly too obviously like a false defector. When he returned to

the United States as a redefector from the Soviet Union, he was suspect: at least five

intelligence agencies (the GRU, KGB, CIA, FBI and ONI) found his curious false-identity

profile highly suspicious. But that same profile was extremely well-suited to those who

ultimately planned to murder President John F. Kennedy. Oswald could be manipulated, like

the religious institutions that American intelligence had used through fifty years, in a

half-dozen ways and in a half-dozen on-going espionage games.

Oswald: Perfect Patsy

Why had Oswald become the designated lone assassin patsy in the JFK murder?

Six years (or more) of complex and questionable U.S. intelligence and espionage activities

with their initiators, sponsors, and handlers were threatened if a full investigation of

Oswald were held after the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

The threat ran from the very top of the American establishment to the grunt levels of the

American military and intelligence.

After the JFK murder, a real investigation of Lee Harvey Oswald would have been closely

covered, for example, his probable "Marine" intelligence activity, his Cuban contacts, his

mail coverage by the CIA's HTLINGUAL program, the Agency's multiple "mole" inquiries, the

real origins of Albert Schweitzer College, Oswald's Fair Play For Cuba Committee

connections, and his plot against President Eisenhower. A real investigation would have

closely examined the persuasive but circumstantial evidence of his employment (after his

return to the United States from the Soviet Union) by a yet-to-be-discovered "private

investigative agency doing industrial-security work and funded by either U.S. intelligence

in the U.S. military. Peter Dale Scott has called attention to the "numerous signs that

Oswald's [post-defection] employment recurrently coincided with opportunities for

surveillance of FBI subversive targets."

But Oswald apparently was the field asset of "other investigative agencies as

well....[including] the Alcohol. Tobacco, and Firearms unit...of the U.S. Treasury. Though

Oswald's targets were or seemed to be those of the FBI, he was more likely to have one

federal government agency. Therefore, any examination of Oswald's real work history, after

returning from the Soviet Union would have been a disaster, not only for government

intelligence, but also for private "intelligence" in the industrial-security" area.

Each node of any real post-assassination investigation would have registered multiple

extensions, each of those nodes would have been recognized, for example, as a psychological

warfare operation. Examining HTLINGUAL, in depth would have required a close look at U.S.

illegal and False Identities operations, to U.S. Intelligence to U.S. intelligence's misuse

of domestic and foreign postal systems, to the abuse of liberal Protestant institutions in

the U.S. and in Europe, and to the grey history of Albert Schweitzer College. And examining

the oil/intelligence/Unitarian complex in Dallas would have meant exposing the Osborn

family, character witnesses for Ruth and Michael Paine, as intimate associates of the U.S.

elite establishment, the U.S. military, U.S. Intelligence, the government's psychological

warfare and behavior modification programs, an its key Cold War covert operations.

At the end of each of these potential investigative extensions was the enigmatic Oswald. Lee

Harvey Oswald became, therefore the perfect patsy, manipulated finally in the deadliest game

of all in Dallas, on November 22, 1963.

How similar our hypothesis.

LEMNITZER, as joint naval chief of staff, was furious with Kennedy and had all information concerning the Addison's, the cortisone, the adultery, the Mary Meyer information as well as the WWII era JFK material.

A finding of executive incapacity cannot be ruled out, and Lemay with Lemnitzer would only need grudging assent from general taylor...............looks like a military coup more than a CIA thing,

although tedshackley was involved and dickhelms covered it up,

it seems the roots are here in the armed forces staff chiefs, JFK's militant reactionary opponents.

THANKS FOR THAT ONE REX,

THE VENEZUELA ARMS CACHE WAS ONE OF THE ITEMS ON JFK'S DESK THAT HE WAS TO DEAL WITH UPON RETURNING FROM TEXAS. I THINK IT TURNED OUT THAT IT WASN'T CUBAN AFTERALL BUT A NORTHWINDS PROVOCATION. FOR THE UNINITIATED, HERE'S BAMFORD ON NORTHWOODS.

OPERATION NORTHWOODS

Body of Secrets, by James Bamford, (Doubleday, 2001)

NORTHWOODS p. 82:

“According to secret and long-hidden documents obtained for Body of Secrets, the Joint Chiefs of Staff drew up and approved plans for what maybe the most corrupt plan ever created by the U.S. government. In the name of anticommunism, they proposed launching a secret and bloody war of terrorism against their own country in order to trick the American public into supporting an ill-conceived war they intended to launch against Cuba.”

“Codenamed Operation Northwoods, the plan, which had the written approval of the Chairman and every member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, called for innocent people to be shot on American streets, for boats carrying refuges fleeing Cuba to be sunk on the high seas, for a wave of violent terrorism to be launched in Washington D.C., Miami, and elsewhere. People would be framed for bombings they did not commit, planes would be hijacked. Using phony evidence, all of it would be blamed on Castro, thus giving Lemnitzer and his cabal the excuse, as well as the public and international backing, they needed to launch their war.”

“The idea may actually have originated with President Eisenhower in the last days of his administration. With the Cold War hotter than ever and the recent U-2 scandal fresh in the public’s memory, the old general wanted to go out with a win. He wanted desperately to invade Cuba in the weeks leading up to Kennedy’s inauguration, indeed, on January 3 he told Lemnitzer and his other aides in the Cabinet Room that he would move against Castro before the inauguration if only the Cubans gave him a really good excuse. Then, with time growing short, Eisenhower floated an idea. If Castro failed to provide that excuse, perhaps, he said, the Untied States ‘could think of manufacturing something that would be generally acceptable.’ What he was suggesting was a pretext – a bombing, an attack, and act of sabotage – carried out secretly against the United States by the United States. Its purpose would be to justify the launching of a war. It was a dangerous suggestion by a desperate president.”

“Although no such war took place, the idea was not lost on General Lemnitzer. But he and his colleagues were frustrated by Kennedy’s failure to authorize their plans, and angry that Castro had not provided an excuse to invade.”

“The final straw may have come during a White House meeting on February 26, 1962. Concerned that General Lansdale’s various covert actions plans under Operation Mongoose were simply becoming more outrageous and going nowhere, Robert Kennedy told him to drop all anti-Castro efforts. Instead, Lansdale was ordered to concentrate for the next three months strictly on gathering intelligence about Cuba. It was a humiliating defeat for Lansdale, a man more accustomed to praise than to scorn.”

“As the Kennedy brothers appeared to suddenly ‘go soft’ on Castro, Lemnitzer could see his opportunity to invade Cuba quickly slipping away…”

“Operation Northwoods called for a war in which many patriotic Americans and innocent Cubans would die senseless deaths – all to satisfy the egos of twisted generals back in Washington, safe in their tax-payer-financed homes and limousines.”

“One idea seriously considered involved the launch of John Glenn, the first American to orbit the earth. On February 20, 1962, Glenn was to lift off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, on his historic journey. The flight was to carry the banner of America’s virtues of truth, freedom and democracy into orbit high over the planet. But Lemnitzer and his Chiefs had a different idea. They proposed to Lansdale that, should the rocket explode and kill Glenn, ‘the objective is to provide irrevocable proof that…the fault lies with the Communists et al Cuba [sic],’ This would be accomplished, Lemnitzer continued, ‘by manufacturing various pieces of evidence which would prove electronic interference on the part of the Cubans.’ Thus as NASA prepared to send the first American into space, the Joint Chiefs of Staff were preparing to use John Glenn’s possible death as a pretext to launch a war.”

p. 128:

“Amusingly, one of the most important pieces of information to come along came not from NSA intercepts of a diplomatic cable to Moscow but from a ten-hour interview Castro gave to Lisa Howard, a reporter for ABC News. In the interview, Castro clearly indicated for the first time that he was hoping for a rapprochement with the United States. The CIA acquired a transcript of the interview secretly, through an NSA intercept before the broadcast….”

“…Throughout the summer of 1963, there were endless discussions of sabotage – which targets to strike, what kinds of explosives to use, whether the strike should come from inside Cuba or outside it, whether local volunteers or paid agents should be used. But even while the CIA hawks were plotting their campaign of sabotage, a group of Kennedy administration doves, including UN ambassador Adlai Stevenson, were working on another track. Attached to Stevenson’s UN mission in New York was William Atwood…(who) met with Castro and spent considerable time with him on a number of occasions while practicing his earlier profession as a journalist…..”

“As the CIA continued to plot sabotage missions, President Kennedy began to explore Castro’s apparent olive branch. He approve a quiet approach by Attwood to Dr. Carlos Lechuga, Cuba’s ambassador to the UN, using ABC’s Lisa Howard as a go-between…..”

Just a question, anyone know where Lemnitzer was on 11/22/63,(germany?) and what he was dioing. We know Walker was on a plane, asking other passengers to make sure they remembered him.

One thing has distubed me since learning about Operation Northwoods: what if Nixon had won the election? Would his administration have nixed the project?

I know many of the key players were gone by then but did anyone try to revive the plan under LBJ?

There would have been no need for Northwoods, which was generated in early 1962 as part of the desperation over Cuba. It's very likely Nixon would have made sure the Bay of Pigs succeeded, sending in Marines if necessary. Then the Cuba problem wouild have been "solved" early in his term.

From my 1990 Manuscript JFKConnection

THE CIVIL/MILITARY COMBINE

President Kennedy once stated "the very system of government is

in dire peril and may not survive my term in office." Kennedy was

describing the severe threat posed by extremely powerful cooperative

civil and military sedition at work.

Leaders of the {LDS/JBS rebellion were advising their legions by the

following;

Finally, and probably most important of all courses of action,we would

put our weight into the political scales in this country just as far and

fast as we could.

For unless we can eventually, and in time, reverse by political action,

the gradual surrender of the United States to communism, the ultimate

alternative of reversal by military uprising is fearful to contemplate....

we are opposing a conspiracy....our determination to overthrow an

entrenched tyranny is the very stuff of which revolutions are made.

Their long twilight struggle {5 years} against the elected government

of the United States was for world power. That power lay within an

almost impotent United Nations Organization. Control and direction of

that body would be realized by these subversives upon first neutralizing,

then seizing the U.S. government by shock force, the assassination of

President Kennedy.

Further,...."the result of our failure in this fight most positively will be

concentration camps, or worse, and soon....we must all stick together

or we will certainly hang separately...."

These, and their present-day heirs that weild this stolen power {coup d'etat}

intend to continue for hundreds of years in control, under the titles of either

major U.S. political party.

It was my impression that even under Ike the idea behind the BOP was that US involvement was supposed to be covert and it was meant to appear as an autonomous group of Cubans and was based on the premise Cubans on the island would rise up against Castro. The amount of troops need to take over Cuba against the will of the people would have been enormous, I doubt even Nixon would have done so without a casus belli.

Leaders of the {LDS/JBS rebellion were advising their legions by the following;...

LDS as in Church of the Latter Day Saints? You think the Mormons were involved in a coup plot with the Birchers?
