SNIP

Mort was really rolling during the Sixties. Then, Jack Kennedy was assassinated. Jim Garrison,the New Orleans DA, found the assassination to be an inside job, and, in one of the bravest acts in recent American History, sued Clay Shaw and the CIA, and got as far as a jury trial. Many people do not know that Mort worked with Garrison as an unpaid investigator on the case. Mort was a smart man, politically and socially, involved in a very heavy, publicized case. The government planted agents inside Garrisons staff, spirited witnesses out of the state, tapped phones, and put forth a lot of effort for a case that they and their stooges in the press ridiculed.

Many among us, including educated Liberals, know that we killed Torrijos in Panama, Lumumba in Africa, Mossadeq in Iran, pushed Aristide out of Haiti. We supported the murderous Sadaam Hussein in the eighties and early nineties, knowing what and who he was. Rumsfeld even sold him the nerve gas he used on the Iranians and the Kurds. Thanks to Youtube, we have Dick Cheney stating, famously, in 1994, what a tactical mistake it would be to invade Iraq. More recently, we invaded Panama, and kidnapped the Sovereign leader of a neighboring country. Why? Because he was getting ready to spill the beans on the Bush family, Iran Contra, and cocaine trafficking. Knowing this to be true, why is it so difficult to believe that these same fascist forces of darkness would kill President Kennedy. He said "I intend to shatter the CIA into a thousand pieces."
