58. The world's finest history teacher...
Edited on Wed Nov-09-05 02:21 PM by DrDebug
Just imagine that everybody had John Simkin as a history teacher during high school. There'd be no way that Bush would have managed to gain power, because you'd have an informed citizenship. Lucky for us John shared all his wisdom on http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk

It's not just about JFK. Even though he has everything about him, but it contains so many subjects with the best and most complete information. Here's to you John. I wouldn't have known about this if it weren't for your website :toast:

Mary Pinchot Meyer. ( http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/JFKmeyerM.htm ) Quite a woman. She's very important, because she had an affair with JFK and she knew a lot of what was going on behind the scenes...



JFK with Mary Meyer (far right). Antoinette Bradlee is second on the left.

Mary Pinchot Meyer was the sister of Ben Bradlee's second wife, Tony Pinchot. She was a very beautiful, talented artist who was living in Washington, DC in the early '65 and she was the lover, I would say the principal lover, of John Kennedy, who was President of the United States. He was supposedly very much in love with her and wanted to divorce Jackie and marry her. (...) <1>

She was murdered a year after Kennedy died. Kennedy was killed in 22 November 1963. <1>

At approximately 12:45 PM on October 12, 1964, a 43-year-old Washington, DC area artist was gunned down on a towpath in Georgetown. The death of this woman, Mary Pinchot Meyer, brought much criticism towards Washington's Metropolitan Police Department for its inability to protect the public, but it was the shadowy events before and after her murder which have kept Mary's death a concern of people today. Jim Marrs's book, Crossfire: The Plot That Killed Kennedy, lists Mary Pinchot Meyer's death as one of the mysterious deaths associated with the John F. Kennedy Assassination (559). <2>

Some young black man was put in jail for ten months, held over until his trial and then he was acquitted because there was no evidence. And they've never found the killer but people who have investigated the case say that it had all the earmarks of a professional assassination. <1>

In March, 1976, James Truitt gave an interview to the National Enquirer. Truitt told the newspaper that Mary Pinchot Meyer was having an affair with John F. Kennedy. He also claimed that Meyer had told his wife, Ann Truitt, that she was keeping an account of this relationship in her diary. Meyer asked Truitt to take possession of a private diary "if anything ever happened to me". <3>

Ann Truitt was living in Tokyo at the time of the murder. She phoned Ben Bradlee at his home and asked him if he had found the diary. Bradlee, who claimed he was unaware of his sister-in-law's affair with Kennedy, knew nothing about the diary. He later recalled what he did after Truitt's phone-call: "We didn't start looking until the next morning, when Tony and I walked around the corner a few blocks to Mary's house. It was locked, as we had expected, but when we got inside, we found Jim Angleton, and to our complete surprise he told us he, too, was looking for Mary's diary." <3>

James Angleton, CIA counter-intelligence chief, admitted that he knew of Mary's relationship with John F. Kennedy and was searching her home looking for her diary and any letters that would reveal details of the affair. According to Ben Bradlee, it was Mary's sister, Antoinette Bradlee, who found the diary and letters a few days later. It was claimed that the diary was in a metal box in Mary's studio. The contents of the box were given to Angleton who claimed he burnt the diary (this was later found to be untrue). <3>

There is another possible reason why both Angleton and Bradlee were searching for documents in Meyer's house. Meyer had been married to a leading CIA operative involved in a variety of covert operations in the early 1950s. Were they worried that Meyer had kept a record of these activities? Was this why Mary Pinochet Meyer had been murdered? <3>

Is it a coincidence that the two women closest to JFK died in the years following his assassination. Did JFK tell Mary Meyer and Florence Smith something that was not good for their health? <3>
