The Julian Assange Case: Revealing War Crimes Is Not a Crime What we are facing is an all-out assault against one of the most significant acts of civil resistance in the history of the United States. Specifically, the civil resistance of Chelsea Manning, her whistleblowing that helped end the US combat role in Iraq in 2011, and the courage of Julian Assange in ensuring that Manning's resistance was effective.

We Filed Suit to Prevent Mass Confusion at the California Primary The two major parties toy with the Independent voters of this country. They run the boards of elections and they make up the rules as they please as they go along. The result is that every county is a fiefdom, run by each county election official in a different way. This does not inspire confidence in the integrity of the vote.

The Hidden Castro Assassination Plots What I offer here is new research on two key operations designed to kill Castro - Patty and Liborio - based in military intelligence and in specialized "nets" within Cuba. The officers running these other operations may have met up with Bill Harvey's get-Castro team in 1962. I believe these "hidden plots" were not revealed during the "limited hangout" the Agency was forced to endure during the 1970s.

THE JFK CASE: THE TWELVE WHO BUILT THE OSWALD LEGEND (Part 12: The Endgame) Between November 8-9, and in the following days leading up to 11/22/63, a series of incidents show that Lee Oswald was being used as a provocation - someone that no one would easily forget. The most reasonable conclusion is that Oswald, Michael Paine, and Ruth Paine were manipulated to do the bidding of certain intelligence operatives.

THE JFK CASE: THE TWELVE WHO BUILT THE OSWALD LEGEND (Part 11: The Paines Carry the Weight) Michael Paine's parents were drinking buddies with the mistress of CIA chief Allen Dulles. Paine got Lee Oswald to join the ACLU - this undercut Lee's only champion in the days after the assassination. The story of the Paines goes all the way back to the roots of the McCarthy era.

How the Warren Commission Covered Up JFK's Murder An analysis of the factual problems in the case against Oswald. These would have turned into legal problems. If Oswald had lived and gone to trial, the chain of custody of most of the items of evidence is so weak that the case would have probably been dismissed by the judge, simply because there was no reasonable basis for the case to proceed to a jury for verdict.

The JFK Case: The Twelve Who Built the Oswald Legend (Part 10: Nightmare in Mexico City) To understand Oswald, the most important person to watch may be CIA case officer Ann Goodpasture. She had a hand in the tap operations, the photo operations, and more. Sometimes described as Win Scott's principal aide, she was a force majeur. I believe she used Oswald's file with CIA HQ to conduct a molehunt, which created a paper trail between them. The need to hide this paper trail is tied to the coverup of JFK's killing.

THE JFK CASE: THE TWELVE WHO BUILT THE OSWALD LEGEND (Part 9 - Oswald Takes Center Stage As An Intelligence Asset) When Lee Oswald returned to his hometown of New Orleans, he returned to a world where the CIA was wary of the local Cuban exile organizations because of infiltration by Castro's forces. Oswald went to work for Guy Banister, the head of a major Southern anti-communist intelligence network. First he tried to flush out "pro-Castro types" as an activist for Fair Play for Cuba. Then Oswald moved towards the public spotlight

THE JFK CASE: THE TWELVE WHO BUILT THE OSWALD LEGEND (Part 8: The CIA-Army Intelligence Mambo) Did some agency drop the ball and not fully debrief the Oswalds after they entered the USA? Dorothe Matlack was Army Intelligence's specialist in the art of debriefing defectors and refugees. Tony Czajkowski was her CIA counterpart. These two agency legends worked together in the Interagency Defector Committee. They got together to buttonhole George de Mohrenschildt after he left Oswald to organize a Haitian coup in mid-63

THE JFK CASE: THE TWELVE WHO BUILT THE OSWALD LEGEND (Part 7: The hand-off from De Mohrenschildt to the Paines) This chapter in the series describes how the White Russian community in Dallas worked their story about Oswald, relations between the Dallas CIA office and Legend Maker #9 George de Mohrenschildt, and the close working relationships among AID, the State Department, de Mohrenschildt, and the family of Ruth Hyde Paine. In 1963, the "babysitting" duties for the Oswald family were passed from de Mohrenschildt to the Paine family.

THE JFK CASE: The Twelve Who Built The Oswald Legend (Part 6: White Russians Keep An Eye On Oswald In Dallas) Part 6 in the continuing series of Oswald and the twelve legend makers that either befriended him or watched over him prior to the assassination. In this chapter, Oswald has returned to the USA and is monitored by a right-wing organization of Soviet and Eastern European emigres with close ties to Cord Meyer's International Organizations wing of the CIA, as well as to the emigre-friendly Radio Free Europe.

THE JFK CASE: THE TWELVE WHO BUILT THE OSWALD LEGEND (Part 5: The Double Dangle) Lee Oswald and Robert Webster were "dangles", brought together by the FBI and the CIA to entice the Soviets. Robert Webster defected to the USSR to learn more about the Soviet defense program. Radar operator Oswald defected to learn what the Soviets knew about the U-2. Descriptions of the two men were subtly altered for use in "molehunt" exercises designed to look for leaks and capture spies who repeated these descriptions.

THE JFK CASE: THE TWELVE WHO BUILT THE OSWALD LEGEND (Part 4: When the U-2 Goes Down, Oswald is Ready to Return) This chapter reveals the story behind the 1960 U-2 incident. A renegade NSA agent, Jack Dunlap, tipped off the Soviets about flights over the USSR...which led to the Soviets shooting down the U-2. Oswald's boss at the radio/TV factory in Minsk, Don Alejandro Ziger, was ostensibly an alienated White Russian. Oswald used to work on the U-2. The legend is that Ziger tipped Oswald that his work was done and he should go home.

THE JFK CASE: THE TWELVE THAT BUILT THE OSWALD LEGEND (Part 2: An Instant Visa Gets The Marine Into Moscow) Second in a series that discusses the twelve people that created the Oswald legend. Here: Oswald's experience with the U-2 while in the Marines, how Oswald managed to cadge an instant visa from the Soviets to enter the USSR, how American officials protected Oswald after he told them he would give radar secrets to the Soviet Union. And what was the relationship between Oswald and defector Robert Webster? They could be twins.

THE JFK CASE: THE TWELVE WHO BUILT THE OSWALD LEGEND (Part One: Mother, Meyer, and the Spotters) This is the first in a series of essays explaining the background of the twelve handlers of Lee Harvey Oswald during the last four years of his life. It is a gripping story of espionage, based on documents in the National Archives. Ask the House Oversight Committee to release both the JFK files and the MLK files. US history should not be wrapped in mystery. Many of the key issues have already been resolved.

During Sunshine Week March 14-20, take action to free the JFK files and other files as well. Informants can be interviewed or released from their oaths while they are still alive. The House Oversight Committee can do the right thing and open the vaults.
