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.See all Product Description

I have been recommending this to all of my friends and correspondants who are fascinated with the Kennedy Assassination subject. Almost all of these people have read the book and found it to be way and beyond the best, most factual and believable book yet writted. Some of these people, on the other hand, are furious with it.
These are writers, at one level or another, who have published, or wish to publish, their own ideas of what happened in Dallas on November 22, 1963. A lot of these studies, and books, are outlandish, convoluted and very intense, a good discription of many of their authors.
Actual examples of these odd ideas, sent to me under conditions of privacy (their names were never to be mentioned to a soul):
Ruby was a Freemason; a Mafia member; a Mossad agent.
Kennedy was shot 3-6-9-11 times with various calibers of guns; by "sabot" shells, rifles camouflaged as cameras and umbrellas and so on.
Nixon, the Hunt family and J. Edgar Hoover were all in Dallas that day, watching the shooting from some unspecified nearby building.
Platoons of CIA agents and Mafia dons were crowding around Dealy Plaza disguised as tramps and railroad workers.
Of course there is never any documentation supplied on all of these labored theories and I guess that a book filled with documentation is reproach to their ideas.
Actually, the truth is always found in the simplest answer and this book clearly expresses as much of the actual, as opposed to the official, truth as we will ever learn.
One of my writer friends told me that the author of this book "was obligated to prove" (to him) the "originality" of his ream of his published and supporting official papers.Read more ›
This sews it all up. The actual existence of OPERATION ZIPPER is the bomb that has been waiting to go off for forty years.
P.S. This is not an irresponsible book, because it tells the truth. We do not need to line up behind Bush and his terrorism crusade, because this nation does not need Iraq to become its next Vietnam, or the Cuba that Kennedy kept us out of.
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.
This book could very well be a piece of American History, in that it contains copies of the actual documentation of the conspiracy to murder President John F. Kennedy!
I could not believe what I was reading, yet there it was...all documented and backed up with proof.
It was as if I had secretly gotten into the goverments vault, and looked at the truth about the assassination myself, and in a way.. I did. You can too, and it will be well worth your money. Quite frankly, this may well be one of the most important books in the history of America. It is that good!
In this book, you will actually see the documentation of the conspirators, as they met together. You will see the dates that they met, the times that they met, and in many cases what they talked about. Absolutely incredible Book!
You will see the very dates when they decided to go through with the assassination plan, and when they decided to do away with earlier and alternate plans to overthrow our government.
Finally, the names of the conspirators are told, including the name that the grassy knoll gunman used on his passport!
The who, what, where, when, how, and why's are told, and finally, if these documents are true, the JFK assassination Conspiracy is proven beyond any doubt, and the Warren Report and Gerald Posner's "Case closed" book, are exposed as what they are.....the biggest lies in American political history.
Enjoy this book. You will want to cry at the truth about what happened, yet jump for joy that the conspiracy has been exposed.
You will walk away from this book, but you will never forget it. And may we never forget the day America lost its innocence. The day that our President was killed, and the day that we the people were raped of the truth. The Truth Shall set us free. This book has that truth. God Bless!
