181. This looks like an excellent summary of the history of the CIA and how JFK crossed them...


What we know is that Kennedy had made a number of very
deadly enemies, including former CIA director Allen Dulles, whom
he had fired. We also know that despite his firing and his hatred for
Kennedy, Allen Dulles was appointed to the Warren Commission
which investigated Kennedys assassination.

Who else was in Dallas that morning?

Vice-President Johnson, former vice-President Nixon, FBI
director J. Edgar Hoover, Chase Manhattan bank president and future
Warren Commission member John McCloy, and a George Bush
oil-business partner, George Brown (of Brown and Root)
. Indeed,
according to Madeleine Brown, Johnsons mistress, these men attended
a small party on the evening before the assassination, which
was hosted by Clint Murchison. According to Ms. Brown (53):
The group . . . went behind closed doors. A short time later
Lyndon, anxious and red-faced, re-appeared. I knew how secretly
Lyndon operated. Therefore I said nothing. When Johnson emerged
from the meeting, he squeezed my hand so hard, it felt crushed
from the pressure, he spoke with a grating whisper, a quiet growl,
into my ear, not a love message, but one Ill always remember:
After tomorrow those gd Kennedys will never embarrass me
again - thats no threat - thats a promise.

Perhaps Ms. Brown is mistaken. Perhaps Johnson never uttered
such a prophetic message. However, that he disliked the
Kennedys and feared he would not be on the ticket for Kennedys
second term, is well known.

Also, later in the document it discusses E. Howard Hunt's role with the CIA and involvement in Watergate.

One year after Hunts CNN interview (76) detailed above,
former CIA officer Victor Marchetti alleged in the August 14, 1978
edition of The Spotlight, a Washington newspaper, that some of
the figures in the conspiracy included
Howard Hunt, Gerry Hemming, a long-time Cuba mercenary, and
Frank Sturgis, one of Hunts fellow Watergate burglars. In that
same article, it was alleged that George Bush also played a role in
the Kennedy assassination and it was suggested that the link was
Hunt and the Cubans who had been trained for the failed Bay of
Pigs invasion of Cuba.

These allegations, of course came after Watergate and the
fall of Nixon. In 1974, at the height of the Watergate investigation,
George H.W. Bush was faced with the possibility that the entire
damn might break and that the avalanche of material that might be
uncovered could bury him alive.

Bush was so frightened, he broke out into assholes and shit
himself to death.

If Nixon was impeached, the investigation would follow the
money trail, the Bay of Pigs trail, the E. Howard Hunt trail, the
Kennedy trail, and it might lead to George H.W. Bush.
