Thread: Three new / updated John Newman JFK books appearing on Amazon over the next few weeks

    Nice one Paul.

    I didn't know about Halberstam and the Congo.

    Good post Paul.



    The Washington Post is clearly aware that their article misrepresents the context of Kennedy's request to muzzle Halberstam. JFK was clearly trying to silence a CIA proxy reporter who was translating pro-CIA opinions from the likes of Vann and all the CIA 'sources' Halberstam admitted. The Post has misrepresented the truth so badly that it stands as libel. Anyone who reads the Post article I linked will come away with the idea that Kennedy tried to remove Halberstam to protect his aggressive pro-war policy and stop Halberstam from exposing the impossibility of Viet Nam. It is clear to me that the reason the establishment media commits this outrageous mendacity is because the real reason makes it too clear why Kennedy was assassinated and by whom. Halberstam's book should have been titled The Worst And The Dimmest.


    It makes sense that Bannon would cite this book because Trump is doing what Halberstam did - that is, complaining against the Republican's doings while planning to repeat the same offenses...

    BTW, one of the most amazing things about the JFK case is the fact that the cover up did not end when the original media players passed on, like the Sarnoffs, Paleys, Goldensons, and their paid lackeys like Cronkite, McGee, Jennings etc.

    Some of the first generation critics, like Ray Marcus, thought this might happen. But it has not. It did not even happen when Bradlee died.

    So this thing about disguising who Halberstam really was, and what his agenda was, still lives on even though he is dead and the ARRB has declassified documents showing he was simply wrong.

    If anything shows you how ingrained this national cover up is, that does.

    Angleton was obsessed with the question of institutional memory & almost certainly prepared accordingly.

    Default Even mandatory retirement couldn’t stop spymaster James Angleton’s influence

    Memos reveal the Agency was still seeking Angleton’s counsel nearly a decade after scandal supposedly ended his career

    Considered to be both one of the greatest - and most paranoid - spymasters in living memory, CIA Counterintelligence Chief James Jesus Angleton was undeniably one of the best in the field. By the ’70s, however, he was also considered too toxic for government service after revelations, scandals, and Agency politics forced him and other senior staff out. While it’s been known that he remained somewhat active as an advisor and in think tanks, it seems that little is known beyond his involvement with the American Security Council think tank and a few similar organizations. A formerly SECRET memo from CIA, however, establishes that they, and others, consulted with him on an official basis....

    The memo wasted no time in describing the September 27 meeting. The meeting had been arranged as part of the CIA Director’s Advisory Commission on Multidisciplinary Counterintelligence Analysis and took place at the home of a CIA employee, where they discussed the past and future of counterintelligence for four hours. When the two met, Angleton’s health did not look well. He reportedly had given up drinking alcohol, but continued to chain smoke. Three and a half years later, he would die of lung cancer...

    The most significant revelation of the memo follows immediately: not only was Angleton being “officially” consulted on counterintelligence, he was also consulting with Senator Goldwater, albeit “indirectly”, with Angelo Codevilla of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, and with the President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board (PFIAB), whose job it was provide “advice to the President concerning the quality and adequacy of intelligence collection, of analysis and estimates, of counterintelligence, and of other intelligence activities.”
    "There are three sorts of conspiracy: by the people who complain, by the people who write, by the people who take action. There is nothing to fear from the first group, the two others are more dangerous; but the police have to be part of all three,"

    Newman today on Facebook, concerning the third volume, INTO THE STORM -

    I have the early chapters done. But I am planning on a December 2018 publication date. It is a major overhaul of what we know about the case from spring 61 to fall 62. There will be no further revisions to Volume 1 and I do not anticipate having to revise Volume 2 at all.

    [Regarding Antonio Veciana's recently published book TRAINED TO KILL]
    I have huge problems with his book. I will be dealing with this in detail in Volume III. His testimonies to the Schweiker and HSCA committees are off the wall. And there is a lot more. I'll have to hold off on any more than that as I am still investigating. Veciana is being vague to hide what he was really doing for the army. He has never been willing to tell us what that was. So we are dealing with a distraction. Give me some time on this. I'll figure it out eventually. Lot of stuff to figure out in vol III.

    That is over a year and a half away.

    Well, better than Lifton.

    Newman today on Facebook-

    "I love cataloguing initials of CIA employees, not just high profile officers but also the records people. Document 1 shows the "NS" initials on the bottom of Ann Egerter's 201 opening sheet on Oswald; Document 2 show's Ann Egerter's HSCA deposition saying the initials belong to a "Naomi" in RID (Records Integration Division); and document 3 shows NAOMI's initials on an 11/16/62 FI/DC/ISR (Inter Service Registry) Trace Request, Record and Routing Sheet, on Veciana--showing also that Naomi worked in the 201 section of RID. Sometimes these little things add up to big things and I plan on saying much more about this in Vol III."

    John Newman was asked on Facebook today to comment on Vince Palamara's books. His response is worth posting as it lays out the general timeframe for the remaining few books in the series.

    John, Thank you for your question. I like Vince Palamera. I am not in a position to comment on all of the books on the case, especially questions about Dealey Plaza, ballistics and medical forensics. Just because I don't answer questions should not be taken to mean that I think there is something wrong with a book. There are probably many, many good books that I have not read. As you are probably aware, I have started all over again--from the beginning--and have been working around the clock since 2012 with no end in sight until 2022 which is when I hope to finish this five volumes series. I have only just begun my own reevaluation of the Oswald defection and the late 201 opening and discovered that my views have shifted. I just now got a private message asking for comment on Armstrong's Harvey and Lee which I am not prepared to answer. So, I'd be more comfortable answering questions on the subjects that I feel are suitable for my background and that I have put under my own electron microscope. I have learned the hard way that it is better that I look before I leap!
    With Newman targeting INTO THE STORM for late next year (and he mentioned recently that he's halfway through writing it), I'd guess we'll see Volume 4 in 2020, and Volume 5 in 2022.
