A nice piece of work.

I love the Harold Pinter quote.

And Jim Garrison, despite some mistakes made and a great deal of libel heaped on him, was simply a remarkable man. I read his very articulate books and saw him in interviews.

He never had quite the complete picture, as you might expect with all the clever, well-paid people of CIA and FBI working against him. And America’s mainline press was dedicated to diminishing and defaming him. So how else could it be?

But he got an awfully lot right, and his efforts should have made more of a difference to more Americans, but he was literally portrayed as a person with mental problems and as a crook. Just the intensity of the efforts to do so should tell you something.

I was long a fairly serious student of the Kennedy Assassination, and I understand many of the details that were routinely glossed over or misrepresented.

The fact is Kennedy was the only President in modern American history to oppose the unelected establishment. He did so on several important matters.

And he did so at a time when the CIA, under the pleasant and avuncular Eisenhower who wanted to avoid open military hostilities, had given the Agency free rein pretty much to do as it pleased in many parts of the world.

The CIA was arrogant with its success and privilege and deeply resented Kennedy’s approach to exerting Presidential authority. Kennedy’s threats and firings after the Bay of Pigs fiasco plus his later efforts to establish good backchannel communication with Russia and, to a lesser extent, Cuba, made him a doomed man. His relations with Israel and its determination to acquire nuclear weapons went against the grain of the establishment. His important relationship with Mary Pinchot Meyer was also a dark cloud over him, and Mary was murdered a year after Kennedy, her murder never solved.

An important bottom line consideration concerning the Warren Commission was Bertrand Russell’s profound question, never answered, “If, as we are told, Oswald was the lone assassin, where is the issue of national security?”

Over the years, I’ve done a good deal of serious writing on the assassination. Readers will find some intriguing material in the following:
