2: Muddy Waters

"A century before the Roman Republic perished, two brothers, the Gracchi, emerged as popular leaders who were determined to check the corruption by wealth of the city's institutions. They were both killed. The murderers, who were never punished, came from the senatorial class which had felt threatened by the brothers' reforms."

--Peter Dale Scott, "Deep Politics"

One of the most effective tactics employed by the conspirators was to "muddy the waters" by bringing in as many "suspicious" individuals as possible into the assassination arena, giving different reasons for each person's presence. If they had a covert reason for being in Dallas on November 22, 1963, all the better. Scores of people were engaged in varied peripheral plots and sub-plots, many of which were related tangentially or not at all to the actual assassination. As a result, the pertinent facts drowned in a contrived whirlpool of suspicious, but not necessarily related, activity.

But who was REALLY involved?

Rodney Stich's book "Defrauding America" tells of a "deep-cover CIA officer" assigned to a counter-intelligence unit, code-named Pegasus. This unit "had tape-recordings of plans to assassinate Kennedy" from a tap on the phone of J. Edgar Hoover. The people on the tapes were "[Nelson] Rockefeller, Allen Dulles, [Lyndon] Johnson of Texas, George Bush and J. Edgar Hoover."

According to Stich's source, "There were conversations between Rockefeller, [J. Edgar] Hoover, where Rockefeller asks, 'Are we going to have any problems?' And he said, 'No, we aren't going to have any problems. I checked with Dulles. If they do their job we'll do our job.' There are a whole bunch of tapes, because Hoover didn't realize that his phone had been tapped."

The inner core of the conspiracy is bound tightly together by oaths of secrecy and affiliations with various secret societies, allied with various Nazi groups, mind control operations and business ventures. Much of the operational apparatus used in the conspiracy lay hidden in the shadow world of ultra-secret national security state entities such as Division Five of the FBI, the Defense Industrial Security Command and double/triple agents of various allegiances. "The Torbitt Document" and "The Man Who Knew Too Much" detail the workings of this actual operational framework. Agents from "psy" bureaus, future narcs, ultra-right-wingers, doubles and dead ringers, politicians, spies, cops all fall into the mix.

Another key aspect of the JFK assassination is mind control. Some researchers believe Lee Harvey Oswald was involved in the CIA's MKULTRA project and was subjected to extensive radio-hypnotic intracerebral control and electronic dissolution of memory while in Minsk, Russia. But the question of mind control extends far past the mechanics of the killing itself.
