After viewing Oliver Stone's film JFK, i wondered for the longest time how Stone could be permitted to release a film in the United States that told the truth about the assassination of John F. Kennedy and which implicated the CIA and the American government. It would be many years before i would discover that the answer to that question is that he didn't, at least not the whole truth. What was conveniently omitted in JFK and ignored by mainstream "historians", government indoctrination centers (aka "schools"), Hollywood and the mainstream media, is in fact the most important part of the assassination, a part which, 'till this day, much of the American public is still unaware of. Following are some excerpts from various resources that paint the picture...
By the time cappuccino was served, they had a handshake deal. The details took months of bargaining to work out, but the commitment to a film for around $20 million was made and Stone knew "my movie had a home." CAA client Costner was signed to play Garrison in January, 1991, (two months before Costner's "Dances With Wolves" swept the Academy Awards). The budget doubled to $41 million when Arnon Milchan, an Israeli representing German and French money, became executive producer, and Stone was able to afford an impressive cast of supporting actors as well.
Arnon Milchan (Hebrew: ארנון מילכן; December 6, 1944) is an Israeli businessman, film producer and spy. He has been involved in over 130 full-length motion pictures and is the founder of production company Regency Enterprises. Regency's film credits include 12 Years a Slave, JFK, Heat, Fight Club, and Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Milchan has earned two nominations for the Academy Award for Best Picture, for L.A. Confidential and The Revenant.
He is an Israeli and American citizen, and lives in Tel Aviv. Milchan was an Israeli intelligence operative from the mid-1960s to the mid-1980s.
His father owned a fertilizer company, which Milchan inherited at the age of 21 upon his father's sudden death. Over the years, Milchan turned the company into a successful chemical business. He also earned a degree from the London School of Economics, before he and his company (Milchan Brothers Ltd.) were recruited to Lekem, a secret Israeli intelligence organization responsible for obtaining technology and material for Israel's nuclear program, and other highly secretive programs.
Speculation about Milchan's involvement in arms dealing and intelligence activities was sparked after the indictment in 1985 of Dr. Richard Kelly Smyth, an aerospace executive and scientist who had made illegal shipments of Krytrons, which could be used as nuclear weapon triggers, through one of Milchan's companies. This remained largely in the category of rumour until biographers Meir Doron and Joseph Gelman wrote a controversial unauthorized biography of Milchan that was published in July 2011. The biography Confidential, which is largely sympathetic to Milchan, revealed in detail how he involved himself in espionage, big-ticket arms-dealing, and obtaining sensitive technology and materials for Israel's nuclear weapons program. The research in Confidential – The Life Of Secret Agent Turned Hollywood Tycoon established that "at least through the mid-1980s [Milchan] was a full-fledged operative for Israel's top-secret intelligence agency, Lekem. His activities included "buying components to build and maintain Israel's nuclear arsenal" and supervising "government-backed accounts and front companies that financed the special needs of the entirety of Israel's intelligence operations outside the country".
Two decades later, a network of companies owned by Hollywood movie producer Arnon Milchan smuggled 810 nuclear weapons triggers to Israel in an operation code-named "Project Pinto." The team included American scientist Richard Kelly Smyth and Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu.
In 2001 investigators uncovered compelling new evidence of Hollywood movie producer Arnon Milchan’s participation in the "Project Pinto" nuclear weapons trigger smuggling ring. But the US Department of State, after initially trying to boot Milchan out of the country, finally extended him a long-term US resident visa after intense interventions by Benjamin Netanyahu.
The State of Israel is widely believed to possess nuclear weapons. Estimates of Israel's stockpile range between 80 and 400 nuclear warheads, and the country is believed to possess the ability to deliver them in several methods, including by aircraft, as submarine-launched cruise missiles, and via the Jericho series of intermediate to intercontinental range ballistic missiles. Its first deliverable nuclear weapon is thought to have been completed in late 1966 or early 1967; which would make it the sixth country in the world to have developed them.
However, Israel maintains a policy of deliberate ambiguity, never officially denying nor admitting to having nuclear weapons, instead repeating over the years that "Israel will not be the first country to introduce nuclear weapons to the Middle East". Israel has also declined to sign the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT), despite international pressure to do so, saying that would be contrary to its national security interests.
Additionally, Israel developed the Begin Doctrine of counter-proliferation and preventive strikes, denying other regional actors the ability to acquire their own nuclear weapons. The Israeli Air Force conducted Operation Opera and Operation Orchard, destroying the Iraqi and Syrian nuclear reactors in 1981 and 2007, respectively, and the Stuxnet malware that severely damaged Iranian nuclear facilities in 2010 is thought to have been developed by Israel. As of 2019, Israel remains the only country in the Middle East believed to possess nuclear weapons. The Samson Option refers to Israel's deterrence strategy of massive retaliation with nuclear weapons as a "last resort" against a country whose military has invaded and/or destroyed much of Israel.
Israel began to investigate the nuclear field soon after it declared independence in 1948 and, with French co-operation, secretly began building the Negev Nuclear Research Center,[d] a facility near Dimona housing a nuclear reactor and reprocessing plant in the late 1950s. The first extensive details of the weapons program came in October 5, 1986, with media coverage of revelations from Mordechai Vanunu, a technician formerly employed at the center. Vanunu was soon kidnapped by the Mossad and brought back to Israel, where he was sentenced to 18 years in prison for treason and espionage.
Final Judgment: The Missing Link In The John F. Kennedy Assassination Conspiracy by Michael Collins Piper
A former top-ranking Pentagon official . . .
Here's what Colonel Donn De Grand Pre has written in his own book, Barbarians Inside the Gates, citing Final Judgment, which Grand Pre describes as "brilliant"...
"Several high-level military officers believed that the killing of JFK was in fact a coup d'etat carried out by elements of the CIA working with the Israeli Mossad. Kennedy was attempting to halt the development of nuclear weapons by the Israelis, while simultaneously planning to disband the CIA and disengage our military troops from the Indo-China area. (Read Final Judgment by Michael Collins Piper for more details.)"
—Col. Donn De Grand Pre
THE NUCLEAR BOMB
The second instance to which Congressman Findley referred is of special interest inasmuch as the intended attack on an American air force reconnaissance plane was designed to protect Israel's secret development of nuclear weaponry. It was Israel's nuclear offensive that led President John F. Kennedy into the "secret war" with Israel that he conducted with increasing intensity during the three years of his short-lived presidency.
As we shall see in Chapter 5, it was the very issue of Kennedy's intransigent opposition to Israel's nuclear arms development that became a central part of his standoff with Israel and its Mossad. It was this conflict that played a critical part in setting in final motion the assassination conspiracy that ended John Kennedy's life.
The Theory That Works.
"Conspired All of Them Together." Nehemiah 4:8
The State of Israel had integral links with all of the major power groups that wanted John F. Kennedy removed from the American presidency.
Israel's global network had the power to orchestrate not only the assassination of Kennedy, but also the subsequent cover-up . Israel was indeed a key player in the JFK assassination conspiracy and, the evidence suggests, a primary instigator of the crime. All of Israel's co-conspirators—and those who had an interest in seeing Kennedy dead—had good reason to assist in the cover-up. They were protecting their own interests.
Ultimately, Kennedy planned to merge all of the American intelligence agencies - the FBI included - into a single entity under his brother Robert's direction. This plan, of course, was not greeted enthusiastically by FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover whom Kennedy also planned to dethrone following the 1964 election.
Hoover, as we have seen, had his own secret arrangements with Lansky, individually, and with organized crime in general. Hoover also had a foundation established in his name with funding from Lansky-linked liquor industries and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) of B'nai B'rith, which functions as a de facto U.S. propaganda and intelligence arm of Israel's Mossad.
If Hoover himself did not actively conspire against the life of John F. Kennedy, he certainly looked the other way if he knew that a conspiracy to assassinate JFK had been hatched.
VIETNAM & DRUGS
Kennedy's intended change in Vietnam policy-his plan to unilaterally withdraw from the imbroglio--infuriated not only the CIA but elements in the Pentagon and their allies in the military-industrial complex.
By this time, of course, the Lansky syndicate had already set up international heroin-running from Southeast Asia through the CIA-linked Corsican Mafia in the Mediterranean.
The joint Lansky-CIA operations in the international drug racket were a lucrative venture that thrived as a consequence of deep U.S. involvement in Southeast Asia as cover for the drug smuggling activities.
John F. Kennedy's bitter behind-the-scenes conflict with Israel brought him into combat with an ally of not only the CIA but also the Lansky syndicate, both of which entities also maintained intimate connections to the anti-Castro Cubans.
Vice President Lyndon Johnson's Lansky-Mafia and defense industry ties, coupled with his close relationship to the Israeli lobby, and his longstanding friendly dealings with both the CIA and Hoover's FBI made Johnson an acceptable alternative (among these diverse special interests) to a Kennedy dynasty.
Kennedy himself had long been suspect in the eyes of Israel and its allies in this country.
By April 1963, Kennedy's relationship with Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion and the state of Israel was at a dangerous impasse, particularly over Israel's determination to develop a nuclear bomb.
At Kennedy's last official press conference, he bemoaned the Israeli lobby's deliberate sabotage of his own efforts to build bridges to the Arab world. Little did JFK know that the seeds of his own destruction had been sown as a consequence of his efforts to bring peace to the Middle East
Israeli leader David Ben-Gurion had developed an intense personal distrust-even hatred and contempt-for Kennedy. He believed that Kennedy's presidency was a danger to the very survival of the state of Israel-the nation that Ben-Gurion had helped create.
Ben-Gurion, by this time, was consumed with paranoia. He believed that Israel might be destroyed. It was because of his contempt for Kennedy and the American president's stance toward Israel that Ben-Gurion left his post as prime minister. It is likely that his last act as prime minister was to order Mossad orchestration of a hit on John F. Kennedy.
KEY CIA PLAYERS—ALL TIED TO MOSSAD
The evidence suggests that it was powerful CIA man, James Jesus Angleton—head of the CIA's Israel desk—who played the primary role in manipulating the CIA's involvement in the assassination. Throughout his career, Angleton's activities had intersected with those of the Lansky Organized Crime Syndicate, particularly in the CIA's dealings with the Corsican Mafia. It was Angleton's Israeli desk at the CIA that coordinated the agency's strange alliance with the Corsican crime figures.
As we have seen, anti-Castro elements in the CIA were involved in setting up the patsy, Lee Harvey Oswald. In New Orleans, the CIA's assets including Permindex board member Clay Shaw, Anti-Defamation League-linked Guy Banister and David Ferrie were coordinating anti-Castro activities among the Cuban exiles. They were critical to the plot: they were manipulating Lee Harvey Oswald, making him appear as a "pro-Castro agitator." Banister and Ferrie were also involved in the machinations outside New Orleans at Lake Ponchartrain of CIA operative (and Mossad asset) Frank Sturgis. Oswald is said to have trained at this camp.
The WDSU media empire of the Stern family—major backers of Israel's Anti-Defamation League and close friends of Permindex board member Shaw—contributed to the conspiracy by publicizing Oswald's activities and making them available to the FBI, further laying the groundwork for Oswald's identification as a Castro agent.
Longtime Mossad asset Frank Sturgis—who also doubled as a CIA contract agent—met with Hunt (and with Jack Ruby) in Dallas the day before the assassination. Later Sturgis told Marita Lorenz, that he had been involved in the assassination itself. Looking at Sturgis alone, we can thus say, without qualification, that a known Mossad asset has thus confessed to have played a direct part in the president's murder.
JACK RUBY, MICKEN COHEN AND THE MOSSAD
As we saw in Chapter 13, Lansky's West Coast lieutenant Mickey Cohen—who maintained intimate ties to Israeli arms smuggling—played a bizarre role in intrigue against JFK. Cohen also had a longstanding link to Jack Ruby who was, himself, involved in smuggling arms to Israel. In fact, as we have seen, Ruby (who also trafficked in U.S. intelligence circles) was definitively "more Mossad than Mafia," quite in contrast to the old legends swirling about Ruby and his alleged "Mafia connections."
Just shortly before the JFK assassination, Al Gruber—a henchman of Mickey Cohen and a longtime Ruby friend (who hadn't seen Ruby in years)—showed up in Dallas to visit Ruby. Then, just about an hour after Lee Harvey Oswald's arrest was made public, Ruby called Gruber. It may be speculated that Ruby called Gruber to advise him that the chosen patsy had not been killed before his arrest, as planned, and that Ruby was then told it was his responsibility to finish the job.
Mickey Cohen's friend and lawyer, Melvin Belli, promptly stepped in as Jack Ruby's defense counsel, further tying Ruby to the Israeli-linked Lansky- Cohen apparatus that few JFK researchers care to address, preferring instead to focus on Ruby's mythical "ties to the Mafia."
ROBERT F. KENNEDY
The assassination of Senator Robert F. Kennedy-with an Arab as the '"false flag" - the fall guy - was a part of the continuing cover-up of the murder of President Kennedy. In the RFK assassination, as we have seen, [the Iranian SAVAK-a joint creature of the CIA and the Israeli Mossad - was responsible for coordinating the hit on the senator.
