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.
