THE DEVINE SKEIM – By William Kelly

The assassination of President John F. Kennedy remains a Watershed event in modern American history, the ramifications of which have yet to be fully realized. The details of the crime, the acoustics, ballistics, autopsy and medical evidence are covered elsewhere. This report and the ones that follow concern the covert intelligence operations that resulted in the murder of the president and the black propaganda operations that continue to this day, manipulating the news and judicial system to shield those responsible.

The time and the place – 12:30 p.m., Friday, November 22, 1963, Houston and Elm streets, Dealey Plaza, Dallas, Texas, are notched in our national subconscious, and the picture of that square acre of time and place are etched in our collective memories.

If Dealey Plaza were pictured as a giant mosaic wall mural, broken into pieces like a puzzle, we would have a pretty good idea of what occurred there. Only a few pieces are still missing – the faces in the shadows, the names of the mangers pulling the strings of the puppets and pawns, details unnecessary to understand the nature of the plot.

Although there are many theories as to what happened in Dealey Plaza on that day, the events as they actually occurred only happened one way, and it is the responsibility of the independent researchers, journalists, professors and historians to determine that truth as close as possible.

Some people might consider the crime ancient history, even though it is such a current event that indictments can still be brought down for those responsible for crimes, if not homicide and conspiracy, then obstruction of justice, destruction of evidence and perjury.

Besides the issues concerning the accuracy of our historical perspective, truth and the pursuit of justice, it is important to know for oneself whether the death of the president was an unplanned, spontaneous act of a lone madman or a very well planned and executed coup d’etat.

John F. Kennedy was either killed by a deranged lone-nut, as the official Warren Commission concluded, or he was the victim of a covert action team of clandestine agents, as much of the evidence suggests. The truth is either one way or the other, but cannot be both.

If the assassination of JFK was the work of a lone-nut madman, the lessons to be learned from the tragedy are far less significant than if Kennedy was killed as part of a coup, as the ramifications stem into the realms of justice, as well as truth and responsibility.

Not for the sake of argument, but for the sake of analysis, a competent homicide investigation would proceed first by assuming that JFK was killed as an act of elimination. An understanding of current events also suggest that such a crime was not only the product of a conspiracy, but by a very well defined MO – Modus Operandi – that of a covert intelligence operation.

Although anyone with the training and knowledge can conduct such operations, the murder of the president, because of the extensive cover-up that occurred after the fact, must have had its origin in the very heart of the U.S. government. If it was an independent operation, a renegade group or the work of foreigners, those responsible would have been pursued to the ends of the earth. Instead, the evidence leads directly inside the government itself. Those responsible for what happened at Dealey Plaza took over the government and controlled the investigation of the crime.

But because the modus-operandi MO – is that of a covert operation, by its very name and nature is meant to be hidden and concealed, so as to protect the real sponsors, and to see it you must look at it through a special spectrum. This crystal ball is similar to an onion, an analogy my associate John Judge likes to use, as it has layers of meaning that can be pealed off, revealing new layers of truth, yet only understood if you are trained in the crafts, techniques and history of covert intelligence operations.

Allen Dulles, in his book “The Craft of Intelligence,” notes that the biographical method of study is a good way to learn and understand practically any subject.

Lee Harvey Oswald, the principal assassination suspect, is one of the first characters you have to learn about to understand the assassination, as the official investigators handed the American public the head of Oswald on a platter.

While a typical homicide investigator on the street may not have the historical background or training in intelligence operations, and may not have the investigative resources of federal governmental agencies, a common man’s instincts will tell you something and lead you to clues worth pursing. Every homicide investigator beings with a body, and a suspect who can usually be identified as one who had the means, motive and opportunity to commit the crime.

Oswald had the means, the U.S. Marine Corps training, experience and the tools to kill. He also had the opportunity since he worked in a building at the scene of the crime, which must make JFK the first assassination victim to ever be delivered to his killer rather than be stalked by his assassin.

The problem with Oswald is that he did not have a motive. He actually liked JFK. Not even the Warren Commission could determine a motive for the murder.

The more you learn about Oswald the more you realize he was merely a pawn in a much bigger game of power politics. Although Oswald may have been a loner, he was seldom alone and not deranged. He was definitely an agent, although an agent for exactly who has yet to be precisely determined.

Allen Dulles brought a book with him to the first meeting of the Warren Commission and recommended the other Commissioners read it. It was a book about American assassins, and how they were, historically all psychologically deranged loners. Only Commissioner John J. McCloy called Dulles on this notion, pointing out the Lincoln’s assassination was a conspiracy because a half-dozen co-conspirators were hung for assisting John Wilkes Booth.

The attempt to attribute psychological motives to Oswald continued however, and many millions of words have been written on the subject. But today, the technique of criminal profiling has given us a new tool in which we can categorize criminal behavior, and the category Oswald belongs to also includes other rogues of similar persuasion – Feliz Rodriguez, Frank Forini Sturgis, Gerry Patrick Hemming, Michael Townley, Frank Terpel.

The Oswald profile fits those who are military trained, usually USMC, and from a military family, fluent in a foreign language, can travel extensively, familiar with codes, ciphers and covert communication techniques, works on an operational need-to-know basis and does not talk about any clandestine affairs.

Of course Allen Dulles recognized these traits in the primary suspect, and instead of the book on American assassins, Dulles should have called the other Commissioners’ attention to Sun Tzu’s “The Art of War,” a book written many centuries ago in another society, which Dulles mentions in the first chapter of “The Crafts of Intelligence.”

In “The Art of War,” Sun Tzu wrote about The Employment of Secret Agents. “Now the reason the enlightened prince and the wise general conquer the enemy wherever they move, and their achievements surpass those of ordinary men, is foreknowledge.”

“What is called foreknowledge cannot be elicited from spirits, nor from the gods, nor by analogy with past events, nor from calculations. It must be obtained from men who know the situation.”

Sun Tzu: “Now there are five sorts of secret agents to be employed. These are native, inside, double, expendable and living.”

A native agent is one of the nationality of the enemy. An inside agent is one who lives and works in the enemy camp. A double agent is an enemy agent who works for both sides. An expendable agent is one that can be cut loose after achieving his goal. A living agent is one that can get into the enemy camp and return with information.

Sun Tzu: “When these five types of agents are all working simultaneously and none knows their method of operation, they are called ‘The Divine Skeim,’ and are the treasure of the sovereign.”

Although satellite and communication intelligence have become more significant in today’s world of espionage, the nature of the clandestine network in action is still the most reliable means of learning the intentions of other people and governments and acting covertly against them.

In this regard, little has changed since the days of Sun Tzu. The same type of agents are classified and utilized today, as they were in the ancient Chinese dynasties as well as on November 22, 1963 at Dealey Plaza.

Now their means and method is known as “covert intelligence operations,” and are “compartmentalized,” so each member of the network team only knows his job and role, and may not even know who he is actually working for.

The gunmen who killed JFK were trained, professional marksmen and killers, operating on a need-to-know basis as part of a covert intelligence operation. The shooters were the easy part, mere technicians. It is the covert operational managers at the top of the clandestine pyramid who are actually responsible for the crime, and the subject of this pursuit.

The accused assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, was an agent trained in what Dulles called “the crafts of intelligence,” but he wasn’t a very good marksman, and undependable for that part of the operation. Rather, as the evidence suggests, Oswald was what he claimed to be, an archetypical patsy, the fall guy set up and framed for a crime he didn’t commit. Oswald was, at various times in his short, 22 year old career, an inside agent, a living agent, possibly a double agent, and in the end, a very expendable one.

It is not the pawns in the Great Game we are after, but rather, the Knights, Bishops and Rooks, middle managers, and who they work for, the intelligence officers who pull the chains of the puppets and pawns like Oswald, and Rodriguez, Sturgis and Townley.

Sun Tzu calls the men at the top “wise generals” and the “sovereign,” and the operations of the network “The Devine Skeim,” giving it a sort of deity or godlike association, since only the patriarch at the top knows all that is going on during the game. To the little man on the street it appears to be divine intervention, or the work of God, when actually it is mere man-made magic.

Professor Paul Linebarger, who wrote the textbook on Psychological Warfare, trained three generations of American spies in the techniques of clandestine operations, including E. Howard Hunt, Ed Lansdale and David Atlee Phillips. Besides his own textbook on Propaganda, Linebarger had his students read “The American Confidence Man” by David W. Maurer.

A professor of linguistics at the University of Louisville, Maurer’s book started out as a study of the slang used by swindlers and crooks in the big time confidence games prevalent in the first half of the last century. Using a unique social science technique – Maurer introduced himself to the crooks, told them what he was doing and after obtaining their confidence, learned their lingo as well as how they pulled off such complicated operations as “The Big Store,” which was used as the basis of the popular movie, “The Sting.”

Setting up a Big Store in a city where there are lots of transients – Marks, the store operators pay off the Dicks with the understanding only transients will be marked by Ropers for a Sting and no locals will be taken advantage of. The Roper meets a Mark casually, or what appears to be coincidental circumstances, though he’s actually been selected out of a crowd because of his profile – class, money, out of his home element, etc. and is brought to the Big Store where the Roper passes the Mark off to the Inside Man, who sets up the Sting. The Wire is the operation used in the movie “The Sting,” though there were other similar, totally theatrical productions like The Ring and The Stock, which also end with the money being given to the thieves without the Mark even knowing he was robbed.

In the Big Store that is Dealey Plaza, JFK was the Mark, John Connally roped him and Lyndon Johnson played the Inside Man and greased the official Dicks. And it was the American people who were swindled of their democracy, without even knowing how they did it. Well now we know how they did it and can illustrate it quite clearly for anyone who wants to know.

As with The Sting, the network that makes up The Devine Skeim is compromised of many different types of people, from street-wise con artists and to suave, Ivy League corporate executives in business suits who did time in the Navy.

Now ordinary people can look into the glass onion and see The Big Picture, like a moving picture that leaves Dealey Plaza into the cool, dark tunnel and then emerges into the light of day on the trail of the assassins. The picture moves wherever the evidence leads, to places on the board and individuals who are players in the Great Game, whether they want to be or not.

The names of the real assassins of President Kennedy will never become as famous as Lee Harvey Oswald, but I am convinced that we will come to know them, even if they are now dead. We look into the Glass Onion not to name the guilty, but to view today’s circumstances with a proper perspective.

If Oswald was just crazy, nothing else would make sense, but when you look at The Devine Skeim through the Glass Onion, it all makes sense and you learn to understand what happened at Dealey Plaza.

As William Manchester wrote, “…If you put the murdered President of the United States on one side of the scale and that wretched waif Oswald on the other side, it doesn’t balance. You want to add something weightier to Oswald. It would invest the President’s death with meaning, endowing him with martyrdom. He would have died for something. A conspiracy would, of course, do the job nicely. Unfortunately, there is no evidence whatever that there was one.”

But the evidence is there, if you know what to look for and where to look for it. People ask all the time, “Who killed JFK?” Well, anyone can know the answer, but you just can’t say a name, you have to take the inquisitive journey and learn for yourself, not just who killed JFK, but how and why they did it.

While we don’t have all the pieces to the big picture, mural puzzle, especially the one with the “smoking gun,” and there probably are no still secret document that gives the names or puts faces on the men who pulled the triggers, the overwhelming circumstantial evidence fits in very nicely with the Covert History of Current Events.

The psychological makeup of that “wretched waif Oswald” is of little consequence, while the understanding of The Devine Skeim balances out the scales of history, if not justice.

The tools of the social scientist are limited. We can read and interview, and in the end we must judge for ourselves what is real and what is not.

A homicide detective, my father, once told me that even if you know who murdered someone, you still need to develop the evidence to convict them in a court of law. But the journalist and historian do not have to meet those same standards to know the truth.

Most of the American people have always known, in fact many assumed there was a conspiracy. Even if they couldn’t see through the Glass Onion clearly, they knew in their hearts that something was wrong, not only with the official version of events, but with our Constitutional democracy. It has only been since Watergate in 1972 that the general public became familiar with the covert operational terms such as “black bag operation” and “executive action.”

Philadelphia attorney Vincent Salandria calls it the “Transparent Conspiracy,” where it is prearranged for anyone who takes up the trail of the assassins to be led into a labyrinth of never ending false trails, dead ends and Machiavellian intrigues. “The material we already have demonstrates conclusively that only the only candidate behind the assassination is the American government,” says Salandria, “so to go into a microanalysis only gets oneself into a hopeless maze, and we fail to address the real issues. You can try to develop a model of explanation of what was going on, what happened and why, but to rehash this is useless.”

With an understanding of the crafts and history of covert intelligence operations, as well as the application of standard homicide investigative techniques, my intention is to provide a map and model of the labyrinth. The Devine Skeim is a map of the maze, from those who have been there to those who are just taking up the trail and want to take it even further. To understand the truth of what happened at Dealey Plaza you can’t get caught up in all of the ballistics, trajectories, acoustics, autopsies and caskets. Forget the “single-bullet-theory,” suspend judgment on any theories you may have developed. Take up the trail cold and follow it wherever it leads.

At the last meeting of the Warren Commission Allen Dulles tried to have all of the testimony, reports and exhibits classified, but was over ruled by the other commissioners. “Go ahead and publish the stuff,” Dulles said, “people won’t read it anyway.”

John Judge said, “What they are telling us is that ‘We killed the son-of-a-bitch, and you can’t do anything about it.”

Well, Dulles was wrong, and many thousands of people have read it, and I believe you can do something about it.

My personal approach is to adapt David Maurer’s style, get to know the lingo and the lexicon of the clandestine warriors, learn their history, get to know them, and then slip up next to them and ask them why they did it.

“The big time confidence games are in reality, only carefully rehearsed plays in which every member of the cast – Except the Mark, knows his part perfectly.” - David Maurer, The American Confidence Man [Pocket Books, N.Y. 1949].

Allen Dulles, not long before his death, did an interview with Willie Morris where he made an impromptu remark, saying "That little Kennedy...he thought he was a god."

http://home.earthlink.net/~jkelin1/coup_addendum.html

I ask the Forum members who objectively seek ALL the answers, irrespective of the sources which they emanate from...... The Warren Commssion, The Rockefeller Commission, the House Select Committee and the ARRB [though not an investigative body]

My vote for the most credible investigation of them all?

The Church Committee would be my vote, [as in none of the above]

Although scattered amongst those bodies were investigators who had more integrity that those who chaired the investigations themselves in some cases, [Gaeton Fonzi, even some Warren Commission personages Schweiker, Bogg's] and lower level individuals who were very upset when they realized the truth would be redacted, they were browbeaten into signing the document, Ted Sorensen could probably tell you about the routine, even though he never had to sign anything, himself. Some of the most important Warren Commission Documents to be released were the ones declassified in 1976 [CD 206 for one, you can get a pretty good idea of how the Tippit shooting was reconstructed] The Rockefeller Commission was a farce from beginning to end. The way that government works when a historical event takes place fraught with political implications, is

They clamp the lid on the event, truth is classified...redacted.....until the most offended have passed into eternity, so that 75 years later, it's [the Truth] is read about by people who are totally disconnected to the event from any real emotional tie, it looses its impact, which is precisely the point.... Oliver Stone's JFK was advertised with the slogan "The story that won't go away," it is in a sense prophetic. The story will never go away until the truth emerges. It is very convenient for the perpetuators of the lies to be aided by the fact that there are [with only 9 more years to go until that magic day arrives] thousands of documents that would provide more clarity, however with the most important documents, missing, shredded et cetera, I am not excited about 2017.

Ask yourself a question: If Lee Harvey Oswald killed John F Kennedy unaided and w/o confederates, why, WHY? 43 years later are there still so many classified documents....Why do people like [fill in the blank] for god sakes, get in on the action, to write their definitive tome, that Oswald did it?

Probably for the same reason that spooks pissed on JFK's grave. Think about that the next time you talk to someone who insist's Oswald did it alone. All the quotes.....

Truman - The CIA has become like the Gestapo......

Eisenhower - beware of the the military industrial complex.....

Kennedy - not to create a Pax Americana with American weapons of war......

Because buddy your watching it in living color.

Bill, your astute and insightful message should be permanently inscribed into the doors of every school.

As a complement to it and expansion on its theme should be this surgical incision from Gene Wheaton into the belly of the beast (emphasis mine):

  • This crowd really believes that the unwashed masses are ignorant, that we are people who are not capable of governing ourselves, that we need this elitist group to control the country, and the world -- these guys have expanded. They look at the United States not as a country, not in any kind of patriotic mode now, but they look on it as a state within a world that they control. And that’s this attitude that they have. They’re not unlike any other megalomaniac in the world. They’re nutty as fruitcake, but they’ve got distinguished gray hair, three-piece dark suits and they carry briefcases, and they’ll stand up and make speeches just as articulate as anybody in the world, but they don’t socialize and function outside their own little clique. My experience with them is that they could be certified as criminally insane and put away in a rubber room and have the key thrown away. That’s how dangerous they are. But they’re powerful, and they’re educated. And that makes them twice as dangerous. And that’s basically what’s running the world right now.

Not that every syllable isn't worthy of emphasis, but the statement I italicized, reflected in ways in your piece, is the most difficult thing for so many people to understand. I described this pack of hyenas somewhere in terms of nihilism, and though it isn't, perhaps, a precise characterization, it yet is close to their repeatedly demonstrated consummate indifference to politics, religion, morals, ethics, truth (which they hate with a passion) and ideology except as it serves their own entirely selfish, self-serving, and self-protecting aims—which change with the wind.

Such unrelieved, unmitigated malign purpose and action is something that most people simply cannot conceive or believe even at the basest level, no matter how many times serial killers are caught and exposed. So when it comes to apprehending the concept of such dedicated, relentless psychosis in the very institutions and individuals believed to "serve and protect," the human mind seems to want to shut down, to turn away, to explain away, to run away, and to accept any lie, no matter how egregious, as preferable to the unfaceable truth.

To the degree that any one of us does not face it fully, it owns us.

That, unfortunately, is one of the greatest challenges facing any resolution of this case, as well as a major stumbling block regarding the collective realization of the obstruction of justice, that's been going on for the last forty years. Like ostriches hiding their heads in the sand, thinking their whole bodies are protected. Take a look at the American educational system, outmoded and still teaching from an industrial revolution mindset. The American intellect has been stunted. How else are the masses expected to react? Yet, how convenient for the establishment elites to be able to exert total control over a populace. What is that old saying? "Keep it simple, stupid!" Yeah, "Keep 'em simple, stupid!"

Great thread Bill, Ash, Ron.

FOR STEVE,

From :Motorpsycho Nightmare by Bob Dylan From Another Side of Bob Dylan, 1964

I had to say something

To strike him very weird,

So I yelled out,

"I like Fidel Castro and his beard."

Rita looked offended

But she got out of the way,

As he came charging down the stairs

Sayin', "What's that I heard you say?"

I said, "I like Fidel Castro,

I think you heard me right,"

And ducked as he swung

At me with all his might.

Rita mumbled something

'Bout her mother on the hill,

As his fist hit the icebox,

He said he's going to kill me

If I don't get out the door

In two seconds flat,

"You unpatriotic,

Rotten doctor Commie rat."

The Complete Song:

Motorpsycho Nightmare -

I pounded on a farmhouse

Lookin' for a place to stay.

I was mighty, mighty tired,

I had gone a long, long way.

I said, "Hey, hey, in there,

Is there anybody home?"

I was standin' on the steps

Feelin' most alone.

Well, out comes a farmer,

He must have thought that I was nuts.

He immediately looked at me

And stuck a gun into my guts.

I fell down

To my bended knees,

Saying, "I dig farmers,

Don't shoot me, please!"

He cocked his rifle

And began to shout,

"You're that travelin' salesman

That I have heard about."

I said, "No! No! No!

I'm a doctor and it's true,

I'm a clean-cut kid

And I been to college, too."

Then in comes his daughter

Whose name was Rita.

She looked like she stepped out of

La Dolce Vita.

I immediately tried to cool it

With her dad,

And told him what a

Nice, pretty farm he had.

He said, "What do doctors

Know about farms, pray tell?"

I said, "I was born

At the bottom of a wishing well."

Well, by the dirt 'neath my nails

I guess he knew I wouldn't lie.

"I guess you're tired,"

He said, kinda sly.

I said, "Yes, ten thousand miles

Today I drove."

He said, "I got a bed for you

Underneath the stove.

Just one condition

And you go to sleep right now,

That you don't touch my daughter

And in the morning, milk the cow."

I was sleepin' like a rat

When I heard something jerkin'.

There stood Rita

Lookin' just like Tony Perkins.

She said, "Would you like to take a shower?

I'll show you up to the door."

I said, "Oh, no! no!

I've been through this before."

I knew I had to split

But I didn't know how,

When she said,

"Would you like to take that shower, now?"

Well, I couldn't leave

Unless the old man chased me out,

'Cause I'd already promised

That I'd milk his cows.

I had to say something

To strike him very weird,

So I yelled out,

"I like Fidel Castro and his beard."

Rita looked offended

But she got out of the way,

As he came charging down the stairs

Sayin', "What's that I heard you say?"

I said, "I like Fidel Castro,

I think you heard me right,"

And ducked as he swung

At me with all his might.

Rita mumbled something

'Bout her mother on the hill,

As his fist hit the icebox,

He said he's going to kill me

If I don't get out the door

In two seconds flat,

"You unpatriotic,

Rotten doctor Commie rat."

Well, he threw a Reader's Digest

At my head and I did run,

I did a somersault

As I seen him get his gun

And crashed through the window

At a hundred miles an hour,

And landed fully blast

In his garden flowers.

Rita said, "Come back!"

As he started to load

The sun was comin' up

And I was runnin' down the road.

Well, I don't figure I'll be back

There for a spell,

Even though Rita moved away

And got a job in a motel.

He still waits for me,

Constant, on the sly.

He wants to turn me in

To the F.B.I.

Me, I romp and stomp,

Thankful as I romp,

Without freedom of speech,

I might be in the swamp.
