Secret Service Agent John Rice
#1
From Brothers In Arms, by Gus Russo, Stephen Molton, p. 285

"...Alba's lot was where the local members of the Secret Service, whose office was just across the street, parked their cars, working their counterfeit and protection details. At this point, Jack Kennedy and Lee Oswald had just three months to live, and after their deaths, Alba would become a prime witness to relevant comments made by John Rice, an agent who parked there."

"It was Rice, who supposedly had struck up a friendship with Alba, who would tell Alba that before the Amigos de Roberto had gotten a wiff that Lee was a rat, they had considered him for the assassination team against Fidel. He must have been peddling himself as such, and apparently his application went as far as Bobby Kennedy's desk at Justice before Lee was exiled from the exiles."

"According to Rice and an unidentified New Orleans political writer known to Alba only as 'Fitz," when Bobby first saw Oswald's name come up after Jack's death and traced it back to the CRC dossiers, he was herad to yell out in his office, 'I've killed my own brother!'" 35

"Rice's comments cannot be confirmed, but they attest to the impressions some had of Lee, that he was angling to learn more about the CRC's plans against Castro and did so by trying to be hired as an assassin. Thus he may have been known to Bobby (whether by name or not) well before Lee struck at the president. Alba's testimony also amounted to the first hint, shortly after the assassination, that Bobby considered himself complicit in his brother's death."

Does the author say if he thinks that Bobby's self-perceived complicity led him to impede Jim Garrison's investigation?

Welcome Bill.

Bill,

Your presence on the DPF is welcome indeed.

In terms of his product's impact on his masters' agenda, Russo amounts to a double-edged sword (giving a fresh meaning to Operation Gladio). In essence, he brings new and valuable material to the discussion, and then draws from it conclusions that are patently absurd.

His game, of course, is to dazzle with the former, and then utilize the authority its "discovery" lends to sell the latest iteration of the coverup.

Lamar Waldron is about the same business, although I'm willing to concede that, as opposed to Russo, he is more likely the duped than the duper (which is why Waldron is welcome on the DPF and Russo isn't, if I may attempt to clarify once again the issue you and I have discussed most recently).

Back to the gladio analogy: In order for Russo to sell his disinformation-as-conclusions to the broadest possible customer base, he must incorporate into his offering nuggets of highly significant, previously suppressed truth. In theory, only a tiny percentage of his readers will possess the requisite skills to seperate the aurum from the iron pyrite -- and virtually none of them will be in a position to finance anything even remotely threatening with this treasure.

But there's no such thing as a sure thing.

And so we march forward.

Good to have you here, BK.
