Dodd and Dulles vs. Kennedy in Africa

Written by
The following is not polemics. It is actually history. It tells the truth about an important event. But as it does so, it reveals the true character of the men who helped mold it: Eisenhower, Allen Dulles, Lumumba, Thomas Dodd, Joseph Mobutu, Hammarskjold, Moise Tshombe, Cyrille Adoula, Johnson and, primarily, JFK – writes Jim DiEugenio.

The Posthumous Assassination of John F. Kennedy

A classic and much-discussed essay which explores at length and in depth both the provenance and the evolution of these "JFK scandal stories" over a number of years: how they morphed over time at each appearance into something they were not when they first appeared.

The FBI and the Framing of Oswald

Written by
John Armstrong shows how the FBI altered the photographic evidence to misrepresent Oswald's belongings as taken from the Dallas police. Included is a piece of testimony to the Warren Commission that was altered before inclusion, and copies of two letters from the IRS showing that at least two of Oswald's W-2 records of employment were forged in January, 1964.
  On November 5, 1963, Otepka was finally formally ousted from the State Department. Just seventeen days later, Kennedy would be assassinated. And the killing would be pinned on the man Otepka was trying to investigate when he was removed from his office, writes Lisa Pease.
Carol Hewett concludes that scrutiny of the FBI's response to all of the mail of Lee and Marina may also help us understand the intelligence roles played by the Oswalds (wittingly or unwittingly) and may shed light on the true nature of the Paine/Oswald and the Paine/FBI relationships.

The Left and the Death of Kennedy

Written by
The articles by Ray Marcus and Martin Schotz do not so much explain the reaction, or non-reaction, of the Left to the death of John Kennedy as show, in the face of that non-reaction, that the murder of Kennedy was the first step that led to the death of the Left, writes Jim DiEugenio.

No Lieutenant Columbo in Mexico City

Written by
Lisa Pease examines the Slawson report in light of his willingness to be "guided" by the CIA, and concludes that it shows how once again the Commission deliberately ignored, misrepresented or played down evidence available to them.
The disappearance of this item which originally appeared on the (first) Dallas police list of Oswald's belongings points to collusion between the Paines and the FBI, argues Carol Hewett.
Lisa Pease explores Thomas Dodd's role in the Congo crisis and the Dodd connections to CIA and FBI assets in New Orleans in this provocative two-part article.
