The New Proof of the KGB’s Hand in JFK’s Assassination

The Kremlin complied. Two months later, R. Palme Dutt, the editor of a communist-controlled British journal called Labour Monthly, signed an article that raised the specter of CIA involvement without offering a scintilla of evidence. “[M]ost commentators,” Dutt wrote, “have surmised a coup of the Ultra-Right or racialists of Dallas . . . [that], with the manifest complicity necessary of a very wide range of authorities, bears all the hallmarks of a CIA job.” Semichastny’s super secret letter and Dutt’s subsequent article were revealed by former Russian president Boris Yeltsin in his book The Struggle for Russia, published 32 years after the Kennedy assassination.

No wonder Yeltsin was ousted by a KGB palace coup that transferred the Kremlin’s throne into the hands of the KGB—which still has a firm grip on it. On December 31, 1999, Yeltsin stunned Russia and the rest of the world by announcing his resignation. “I understand that I must do it,”[ii] he explained, speaking in front of a gaily-decorated New Year’s tree along with a blue, red and white Russian flag and a golden Russian eagle. Yeltsin then signed a decree “On the execution of the powers of the Russian president,” which states that under Article 92 Section 3 of the Russian Constitution, the power of the Russian president shall be temporarily performed by Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, starting from noon on December 31, 1999.[iii] For his part, the newly appointed president signed a decree pardoning Yeltsin, who was allegedly connected to massive bribery scandals, “for any possible misdeeds” and granted him “total immunity” from being prosecuted (or even searched and questioned) for “any and all” actions committed while in office. Putin also gave Yeltsin a lifetime pension and a state dacha.[iv]

Soon after that, the little window into the KGB archive that had been cracked opened by Yeltsin was quietly closed. Fortunately, he had first been able to reveal Semichastny’s memo, which generated the Kennedy conspiracy that has never stopped.

Dutt’s article was followed by the first book on the JFK assassination published in the U.S., Oswald: Assassin or Fall Guy? It was authored by a former member of the German Communist Party, Joachim Joesten, and it was published in New York in 1964 by Carlo Aldo Marzani, a former member of the American Communist Party and a KGB agent. Joesten’s book alleges, without providing any proof, that Oswald was “an FBI agent provocateur with a CIA background”. Highly classified KGB documents smuggled out of Russia with British MI-6 help by KGB defector Vasili Mitrokhin in 1993—long after the two U.S. government investigations into the assassination had been completed—show that in the early 1960s, Marzani received subsidies totaling $672,000 from the Central Committee of the Communist Party. That raises the question of why Marzani was paid by the party and not by the KGB, whose agent he was. The newly released Semichastny letter gives us the answer: on the next day after the assassination, the Kremlin took over management of the disinformation operation aimed at blaming America for the JFK assassination. That is why Oswald: Assassin or Fall Guy? was promoted by a joint party/KGB operation.

The book’s first review, which praised it to the skies, was signed by Victor Perlo, a member of the American Communist Party, and was published on September 23, 1964, in New Times, which I knew as a KGB front at one time printed in Romania. On December 9, 1963, the “progressive” American journalist I. F. Stone published a long article in which he tried to justify why America had killed its own president. He called Oswald a rightist crackpot, but put the real blame on the “warlike Administration” of the United States, which was trying to sell Europe a “nuclear monstrosity.” Stone has been identified as a paid KGB agent, codenamed “Blin.”

So LBJ’s initial assessment (as quoted in “The Best and the Brightest”) that “the communists had done it” was correct. And then he cowardly refused to act on it. Some Texan.

Self-aggrandizing ex- communist seeks another 15 minutes on JFK 60th anniversery. He postulates Johnson's already "unpopular stance" on Vietnam in 1963. RRRIIIIGGGHHHTT!!!!!!!! In 1963 there were less than 10,000 Americans in Vietnam and the overwhelming majority were civilian. Vietnam wasn't even a footnote in the American political conscience. The Gulf of Tonkin Resolution was almost {Aug 1964} a year away. This guys talking out his @ss trying to turn a quick buck from those too stupid to know better. Of course the editors here at PJMedia are notoriously reluctant to fact check a story "Too Good to be True". As for the authors "Defection", if the auditors of his section didn't catch him, had he stayed, the peasents, pichforks and all would have. "I haff zeen all zeeze secret viles, trust me I zwere, and please too make out zheck to..DOUBLE PLUS GUD AGENT SMIRNOFF, or cash, whatever is easiest."

Scary stuff but compelling. Imagine what could have happened if this information was widely know 50 years ago. This could have become the nuclear war trigger that we thought the Cuban Missle Crisis was going to be. Maybe LBJ was prudent, not cowardly.

The author will be trashed by Ron Radosh and David Horowitz for violating their orthodoxy about their former ideology in 3...2...

There has been plenty of documents released that the KGB also had a real top priority to spread disinformation of American atrocities in Vietnam starting in the late 50's and that the KGB sponsored the Stockholm Peace Conference as well as aiding in the founding of the anti-War movement, the whole while being Ho Chi Min's benefactor. Yet in our schools and all media that is not what is taught. To this day the truth about Vietnam is just side stepped. Collectively we keep throwing Nixon under the bus but he was very right on Vietnam and I firmly believe he fully understood what is being brought up here. 58,000 American's would still be here if Kennedy had not been elected, Khrushchev moped the floor with him. Nixon knew just where Khrushchev was coming from and he was ready. Nixon's book "the Real War" should be mandatory reading in American schools.

It could be worse I suppose...David Hornick could be lecturing us on how the assassination was really just another anti-Semetic plot hatched by Kissinger and Nixon.

Imagine if the public had been trusted with the truth that Oswald was a KGB agent. Even if he possibly went rogue, he was trained, put in place, supported, and handled by the KGB.
Might have stiffened spines all over the free world during the Vietnam conflict and during the Cold War and saved a great deal of suffering in the end.

Ockham's razor tells us that the the solution to a mystery that has the fewest assumptions is probably the correct one. It is a dubious credit to the many JFK books I have read over the years have all rejected this obvious possibility.
