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

Joesten dedicated his book to Mark Lane, an American leftist who in 1966 produced the bestseller Rush to Judgment, alleging Kennedy was assassinated by a right-wing American group. Documents in the Mitrokhin Archive show that the KGB indirectly sent Mark Lane money ($2,000), and that KGB operative Genrikh Borovik was in regular contact with him. Another KGB defector, Colonel Oleg Gor­dievsky (former KGB station chief in London), has identified Borovik as the brother-in-law of Col. General Vladimir Kryuchkov, who in 1988 became chairman of the KGB and in August 1991 led the coup in Moscow aimed at restoring the Soviet Union.

The year 1967 saw the publication of two more books attributed to Joesten: The Case Against Lyndon Johnson in the Assassination of President Ken­nedy and Oswald: The Truth. Both books suggested that President Johnson and his CIA had killed Kennedy. They were soon followed by Mark Lane’s A Citizen’s Dissent (1968). Lane has also intensively traveled abroad to preach that America is an “FBI police state” that killed its own president.

With such books, the Kennedy conspiracy was born, and it never stopped. The growing popularity of books on the JFK assassination has encouraged all kinds of people with any sort of remotely related background expertise to join the party, each viewing events from his own narrow perspective. Several thousand books have been written on the JFK assassination, and the hemorrhage continues. In spite of this growing mountain of paper, a satisfactory explanation of Oswald’s motivation has yet to be offered, primarily because the whole important dimension of Soviet foreign policy concerns and Soviet intelligence practice in the late 1950s and early 1960s has not been addressed in connection with Oswald by any competent authority. Why not? Because none of their authors had ever been a KGB insider, familiar with its modus operandi.

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.
