Book Description

April 2002
39 years after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the truth finally comes to light: In 1996, ROBERT CROWLEY, former Deputy Director of Clandestine Operations of the CIA, gave documents of his own top secret operations to his friend, historian Gregory Douglas. After Robert Crowley died in late 2000, Gregory Douglas was free to begin publishing important sections of the Crowley papers. Backed up with documents reproduced in the book, Douglas proves which individuals plotted to kill John F. Kennedy, why they thought that this assassination was justified, how it was done, who else was involved, and how the cover-up of this major clandestine operation was mounted.

REGICIDE recasts the loyalties, disloyalties, and covert plots of the U.S. intelligence community during the Kennedy administration in a new light. As is well known, the rise of Fidel Castro as communist dictator of Cuba led to a series of very dangerous confrontations with the U.S.— the failed Bay of Pigs invasion and the subsequent Cuban Missile Crisis being two of the best known events. It is less well-known that both the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff and the CIA were plotting to drag the U.S. into open hostilities with Cuba by staging "Cuban aggressions" and to intentionally cause "collateral damage" outside and inside the U.S. In other words: to kill innocent civilians, including U.S. citizens, and blame it on Castro in order to supply a reason for a military invasion of Castro's Cuba. When U.S. President John F. Kennedy discovered this treasonable program, he intervened and prevented what would certainly have triggered a nuclear world war. In order to prevent another such clandestine intelligence horror, Kennedy felt strongly that it was an urgent necessity to circumvent both the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the CIA who were obviously determined to force a dangerous war on his administration and on the country.

"OPERATION ZIPPER" was the code name of the assassination plot of John F. Kennedy, President of the United States of America. The 98 pages long paper entitled "OPERATION ZIPPER Conference Record" is a long list of decisions and activities of various U.S. authorities in a CIA-conducted project. All major facts behind the Kennedy assassination are found in the "Zipper" Document. For the first time, the motives of those who organized and instigated the act are clearly and decisively exposed, as are the names and official positions of those who directed the killers. This document was probably produced by the five CIA top officials mentioned in the distribution list (McCone, Angleton, Carter, Crowley, Harvey) in order to cover themselves, since this document clearly proves that the assassination of J. F. Kennedy was anything else but a private plot by a few CIA senior officers going rampant.

Among Robert Crowley's papers is a 1978 in-depth analysis of a Soviet intelligence report on the assassination of President John Kennedy, prepared by the Defense Intelligence Agency, and dubbed THE DRISCOLL REPORT. At one time, the Russians were held suspect in this act, and in the intervening years, their intelligence organs had been compiling data in refutation of this thesis. It should be noted that Lee Oswald, the purported assassin, had defected to the Soviet Union and, while resident in that country, married the niece of an MVD intelligence officer. Although the DIA Report makes it very clear that Oswald was a source for the Office of Naval Intelligence and that his defection was spurious, his openly avowed Marxism, public support of the Communist government of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, and his repeated pro-Communist utterances made him a very handy weapon with which to attack the Russians. This report, signed by Army Colonel Vedder B. Driscoll, chief of the Soviet Intelligence division of the DIA, appears to be the first official analysis of the Kennedy assassination that does not follow the official line, and which survived the post-assassination shredd

Product Description

From the Publisher

Press Release: CIA OFFICIAL ADMITS: WE KILLED JFK! President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963, by Lee Harvey Oswald. Oswald, it was determined by the official Warren Commission, acted entirely alone.

THIS STATEMENT IS FALSE!

Actually, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated by four Corsican Mafiosi. These Mafiosi, according to fifty pages of formerly secret Defense Intelligence Agency and CIA documents, killed the President as the direct result of a well-laid plot on the part of the senior officials of the CIA, the FBI, the NSA and the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Kennedy was suspected by the Director of the CIA, James McCone, and James Jesus Angleton, head of the CIA's counterintelligence branch, along with Robert Trumbull Crowley, Assistant Deputy Director of the Agency's Clandestine Operations, of passing secret CIA briefing papers to the Soviet Union via his brother, Robert, the Attorney General. These officials felt that this was sufficient reason to "remove" the President from his high office by assassination.

The so-called "Driscoll Report" was compiled by Colonel Vedder B. Driscoll, head of the Soviet Intelligence Section of the DIA. Driscoll wrote a 19 page top secret report in 1978 addressing a secret Soviet evaluation of the assassination as seen through their eyes.

Also supporting the Driscoll Report is a long, top secret CIA report on "Operation ZIPPER," the official record of meetings, telephone calls and NSA telephone intercepts that led directly to the assassination of John Kennedy.

These documents, along with detailed commentary, can be found in a new book: "Regicide: The Official Assassination of John F. Kennedy" (for details see below).

The explosive documents that supply the background for this landmark work come straight from the private files of Robert Crowley. Crowley, an instigator and active participant in the assassination, died in October of 2000 in a Washington hospital and a significant number of copies of his high-level document collection came into the possession of two writers.

One of these writers, Gregory Douglas, who has written four books concerning the use of top Nazi intelligence personnel by the CIA, has prepared a work that shows in clear, heavily footnoted detail, backed up with official documents, the development and execution of "Operation ZIPPER." His book also lists the names and positions of those U.S. officials who were privy to the plot.

"Regicide" is the very first study to use official documents, copies of which were long ago shredded by frightened American intelligence community officials. This work also includes a massive list of over 3,000 CIA "sources" in the United States and Europe, individuals in the American and foreign media, business and military worlds whom Crowley cataloged as "important and significant" members of the clandestine intelligence community.

From the Inside Flap

As is well known, the rise of Fidel Castro as communist dictator of Cuba led to a series of very dangerous confrontations with the U.S., for instance the failed Bay of Pigs invasion and the subsequent Cuban Missile Crisis, to name only the best known events.

It is less well-known that both the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff and the CIA were plotting to drag the U.S. into open hostilities with Cuba by staging "Cuban aggressions", and to intentionally cause "collateral damage" outside and inside the U.S., in other words: to kill innocent civilians, including U.S. citizens, and blame it on Castro in order to supply a reason for a military invasion of Castro's Cuba.

When U.S. President John F. Kennedy discovered this treasonable program, he intervened and prevented what would certainly have triggered a nuclear world war. In order to prevent another such clandestine intelligence horror, Kennedy felt strongly that it was an urgent necessity to circumvent both the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the CIA who obviously were extremely determined to force a dangerous war on his administration. He and his brother Robert, the Attorney General, decided that any official attempt on their part to establish a rapprochement with the Soviet Union would be doomed to failure by the actions of his own intelligence agencies.

By dealing with the Soviets behind the back of the CIA, John F. Kennedy unwittingly signed his own death sentence, because many high officials within his administration now considered him to be a traitor.

Gregory Douglas, 59, was born in Colorado. His older brother served in the Counter Intelligence during the Korean war and from him, Gregory became deeply interested in the arcane world of spy-counterspy. He has published four works on Hitler's Gestapo Chief, Heinrich Müller, which were translated into German, Russian, and Japanese. A fifth volume is in preparation. Mr. Douglas is an editor of the ‘Military Advisor' magazine, a contributor to historical journals both in the United States and Europe. As an investigative reporter, Mr. Douglas wrote a series of articles on art frauds that resulted in exposure of the notorious Rodin frauds, and was instrumental in uncovering massive thefts from a secure Department of State archive in Berlin in 1995. In 2000, his historical research led him to the discovery of a treasure of gold coins buried beside an Austrian lake by a fleeing Nazi leader, Odilio Globocnik. Presently, Mr. Douglas is working on several other books about recent historical topics, using documents obtained from the late R. T. Crowley, former Assistant Deputy Director of Clandestine Operations for the CIA.

3.0 out of 5 stars A GOOD READ, BUT NOT QUITE THE FINAL WORD Feb. 4 2004
By Don
Format:Hardcover
Regicide provides a good overview of the the facts surrounding the JFK assassination, and offers what it claims to be documentation that the plot originated in the CIA. Regicide relies heavily on a DIA reports which summarizes Soviet intelligence investigation into the assassination, and what it claims to be the original documents of something called OPERATION ZIPPER; the removal of President John F Kennedy. The DIA documentation is believable because, it basically summarizes that physical evidence and provides background information on Oswald and Jack Ruby which is pretty much known fact at this point. As for the OPERATION ZIPPER documents, I suspect they're antoher case of planted disinformation. The facts show that there was a conspiracy to kill JFK, however, I'm yet to see any credible evidence that that the CIA authorized the plot. CIA Director John McCone was Kennedy's appointed man, it doesn't make sense that he'd authorize a plot to kill JFK. Overall, Regicide is a very quick read for background information on the JFK assassination, but far from the final word on the topic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Come over from the dark side my fellow American Nov. 22 2003
Format:Hardcover
You either love the truth and mankind. Or, you're one of the selfish rat bastards that hate the truth and your fellow man because you believe there is profit in it . There is no compromise. You're good or you're evil.
Destiny will determine which philosophy is the correct one:
1) What profiteth a man if he gains the whole world, but loses his soul? OR,
2) Who's the fool, the beggar or king, as all is the same in death?
Destiny will provide the answer.
As for the book. I've studied the details of this event for over 30 years. I'm convinced that the solution to the mystery of the JFK assassination is within its pages. Actually it has been solved for many years. The US gov't killed JFK, as most the world with the exception of the American public have known for a long time.
I feel that your average citizen here is working against an evil that has stacked the deck tremendously against him though with the corporate media, schools, universities, judiciary and Congress having been bought and paid for long ago. And so my compassion extends toward my fellow american even moreso.
Of course, to mention all this (even with volumes of irrefutable evidence) is to be labeled a "conspiracy kook" in our country and immediately discredited and harrassed. That's the price of telling the truth in our land. So be it then.
I ask the American public: Why do you make it righteous to trumpet from the mountaintops for all to see the lies and trechery of Hitler, Stalin, Nero, Napoleon, Herod, etc., and yet tremble with rage and indignity when it is suggested that evil men are in power right here in the United States and have been since the 1776 revolution? Where is your loyalty?

1.0 out of 5 stars Please read with a critical mind Nov. 15 2003
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
A) Strengths of the Book
1) The author, "Gregory Douglas," is evidently very knowledgeable about the CIA and the Kennedy Assassination.
2) The author writes straight to the point, and avoids verbosity. His style of writing suggests a logical and clear mind.
B) Weaknesses of the Book
1) The alleged documents in the book agrees with the Soviet claim that they shot down the U2 piloted by Gary Powers. This is contradicted by a much more credible source, L. Fletcher Prouty, who wrote that the U2 was forced to land and was NOT shot down.
2) The alleged documents claim that a total of 3 shots were fired at Kennedy. This is contradicted by overwhelming evidence that at least 6, to as many as approximately 10 shots were fired during that assassination.
3) The alleged documents claim that there were two snipers, located in the Texas School Book Depository building and in the grassy knoll, respectively. There is strong evidence that there was a sniper in the building directly behind Kennedy, which the documents fail to cite.
4) The alleged documents claim that the hit team was composed of 4 members recruited from the Corsican Mafia by Sam Giancana of the Chicago Mafia. There are several statements about the operational and getaway plan that stretches my credulity. For example, 3 members of the hit team allegedly allowed complete strangers to participate in, or to execute, their getaway after Kennedy was killed. Why would these Corsican mafiosi entrust their getaway wholly or partially to complete stangers? I cannot state the other dubious allegations in these documents for reasons of brevity.

Format:Hardcover
Reading all the available books on the JFK assassination is like watching the movie "Drowning Mona." EVERYONE has a reason and is suspect, though few actually carried it out.
I'm afraid that this book only adds to the list of "crack-pot" theories, as Douglas subtly warns. A reference made in his book from an exert of the Driscoll Report mentions that the US Government allows all sorts books criticizing the Warren Commission Report to be published so should the truth be revealed, it will be obscured by lunacy.
This book is, however, full of eye-opening material. I also like the references to Posner's book "Case Closed." Douglas is rather tame in countering Posner's claims that "everyone is wrong, I and the Warren Commission are right." Douglas also breaks up his book into three areas: The "official" account, the Driscoll Report, and his own information based on the CIA man Robert T. Crowley.
I don't believe Douglas editorializes his information, nor do I think he is sensationlizing the facts. Instead, I believe he is painting a clear-cut picture of events which leads the reader wanting more records opened.
This is a must-read and should be read along with "On the Trail of the Assassins," by Jim Garrison, and "Destiny Betrayed," by James DiEugenio.
