Defending Terrorists and Assassins

Defending Terrorists and Assassins --- ===

Russia may be behind campaigns to establish the innocence of notorious enemies of the USA. Carl Aldo Marzani and Mark Lane were paid by Russia to establish the innocence of Lee Harvey Oswald. Lane and William F. Pepper who supported Russian-backed communist Ho Chih Minh have maintained the innocence of convicted MLK killer James Earl Ray, and Robert F. Kennedy's convicted assasin Sirhan Sirhan who was an angry Palestinian nationalist, a cause supported by Russia after 1967.  Ajamu Baraka of Amnesty international, and recent guest interviewed by Iranian state PressTV and russian state TV RT condemned the death penalty for Oklahoma city bomber Timothy McVeigh in 2001. In 2011, Veterans Today which has been identified as a russian front linked to New Eastern Outlook of the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences asserted the innocence of Osama bin Laden in 2011.

*Timeline

Mark Lane  is best known as a leading researcher, author, and conspiracy theorist[2] on the 1963 assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy who continued to search for clues for Oswald's innocence.  JFK files show that Soviet informant said KGB had ties to Mark Lane USA Today reports Jan 10, 2018  Mark Lane, the New York attorney who challenged the findings of the commission that investigated the JFK assassination had a “trusted relationship” with the Soviet KGB. JFK files show that Soviet informant said KGB had ties to Mark Lane Lane’s relationship with the KGB, which was revealed in new files released from the investigation of the assassination of President John F Kennedy, was disclosed by a little-known Soviet informant code named Shamrock. Lane  first represented the mother of Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald as the Warren Commission conducted its investigation.   KGB’s contact with Lane, the FBI memo said, was Boris Orehkov, a former official at the Soviet Union’s UN delegation. KGB PAID MARK LANE - narkive
A Soviet defector has told how the KGB paid Mark Lane to publish JFK "conspiracy" propaganda in the USA: "  KGB correctly identified the New York lawyer Mark Lane as the most talented of the first wave of conspiracy theorists researching the JFK assassination.  "Though it dared not take the risk of contacting Lane directly, the New York residency sent him 1,500 dollars to help finance his research through the intermediary of a close friend whom Lane's KGB file identifies only as a trusted contact. While Lane was not told the source of the money, the residency suspected that he might have guessed where it came from; it was  also concerned that the secret subsidy might be discovered by the FBI.   The same intermediary provided 500 dollars to pay for a trip by Lane to Europe in 1964. While there, Lane asked to visit Moscow in order to  discuss some of the material he had found. The Centre regretfully concluded that inviting him to Russia would reveal its hand in too blatant a way and his proposed trip was "tactfully postponed." Trusted contacts were, however, selected from among Soviet journalists to encourage him in his research. Among them was the KGB agent Genrikh Borovik, who later maintained regular contact with Lane.

conservapedia Carl Aldo Marzani (4 March 1912 - 11 December 1994), was an American who served in the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) during World War II and later the U.S. Department of State. He also became a political documentary filmmaker, authored many books and articles, and was an editor and publisher. Marzani served nearly three years in prison for concealing his Communist Party of the United States (CPUSA) membership while in the OSS.  Soviet archives and Venona decryption reveal that he was an NKVD spy and Soviet propagandist.   Oleg Kalugin, a retired KGB officer in 1994 identified Marzani as a contact and a recipient of KGB subsidies for his publishing house in the 1960s.

1992, KGB archivist Vasili Mitrokhin defected to the UK with notes and copies of 30,000 classified files collected over the years of his lenghty service " Early in 1960 the New York residency recommended to the Centre that Marzani be given 6-7,000 dollars to enable his Liberty Book Club to continue publishing pro-Soviet material: In  September 1961 the CPSU Central Committee allocated another 55,000 dollars for the next two years to allow Marzani to expand his publications.  Book published by Marzani in 1964 was the first volume proclaiming innocence of  Oswald: Assassin or Fall-Guy? by the German writer Joachim Joesten Joesten supported Moscow's line in pinning the blame for the assassination on a conspiracy by right-wing racists, chief among them "oil magnate H.

Before disappearing into the Soviet hinterland for a year, Oswald spelled out his operational
creed in a long letter to his brother. From Moscow, he wrote presciently of his willingness to
commit murder for a political cause: “I want you to understand what I say now, I do not say
lightly, or unknowingly, since I’ve been in the military .... In the event of war I would kill any
American who put a uniform on in defense of the American Government —“, and then ominously
added for emphasis, “Any American.” His willingness to act as an assassin was now known to
anyone who read this letter, which included not only his Russian hosts but American intelligence,
since his letter was intercepted by the CIA and microfilmed.

Aside from printing leaflets, staging demonstrations, getting arrested and appearing on local radio talk shows in support of Castro that summer, Oswald attempted to befriend leaders of and infiltrate anti-Castro groups that were organizing sabotage raids against Cuba. By this time, he apparently considered himself a sleeper operative, writing in August 1963 to the central committee of the Communist Party USA, and asking, “Whether in your opinion, I can compete with anti-progressive forces above ground, or whether I should always remain in the background, i.e. underground.” During this hot summer, while practicing sighting his rifle in his backyard, according to his wife, he told her about his plan to hijack an airliner to Cuba, saying he might earn a position in Castro’s government.

TELEVISION / Shot in the dark Independent UK
THOMAS SUTCLIFFE
Tuesday 18 August 1992 00:02
 S THERE any being on earth more gullible than an investigative reporter with the scent of a scoop in his nostrils? The question is prompted by Secret History's (C 4) report on the assassination of Robert Kennedy, which, despite turning up some unsettling discrepancies in the official account of the killing, marred its case by its blinkered attitude to contradictory evidence.

Anyway, there we were, back in a maze of trajectory diagrams, bullet counts, eyewitness statements, lone gunmen and missing evidence - Oliver Stone may have worked the JFK mine to exhaustion, you felt, but Tim Tate has discovered a promising seam just over the hill. The story is very similar - one of promise cut down (Robert Kennedy had just won the California primary) and of a system poisoned by lies ('Don't you think it's about time we were told the truth?' Tate appealed at the end). The CIA did this one too, apparently.

Tate's case was built on the discrepancy between eye-witness accounts, which placed Sirhan Sirhan in front of Kennedy, and the autopsy findings, which had the fatal bullets entering from the rear of the head. There were also traces of gunpowder on Kennedy's ear, though witnesses said that Sirhan was at least three feet away. This seemed fairly conclusive - even given the milling confusion in the kitchen where the shots were fired. Then Tate triumphantly produced evidence which forced you to think again; tapes of police reconstructions based on eye-witness accounts.

You were told that what you saw was proof of Tate's thesis. But what you saw was the figure representing Kennedy turn aside for a moment (to shake hands with a kitchen worker), and a figure representing Sirhan reach across another man to put a gun to the side of his head. If this reconstruction was accurate then it clearly showed that the autopsy report and eyewitness accounts could be consistent. The merest turn of Kennedy's head would have allowed for a rear entry wound, while a gunman who stretches out his arm can be three feet from his victim and yet the muzzle will be only inches away. Another eyewitness, again rolled on for the prosecution, said 'I saw the gun at the top of his head', an ambiguous remark, but one hard to square with the suggestion that Sirhan never got close. Interestingly, though the reconstructions were presented as devastating for the official case, they had not influenced the stylish computer graphics with which Tate presented his case.

July 1, 2002  Who Killed Robert Kennedy?  Mark Lane, Author, Philip H. Melanson, Author Odonian Press effort, by the organizer of the Robert F. Kennedy Assassination Archives at the University of Massachusetts, is a persuasive brief for looking more closely at RFK's killing. Based mainly on Los Angeles Police Department and FBI files declassified in the late 1980s, the book argues against the exclusive focus on the convicted assassin, Palestinian immigrant Sirhan Sirhan, though submitting that he may have been part of an assassination plot. Autopsy results and witnesses suggest the presence of a second gunman; several witnesses identified a ``woman in the polka-dot dress'' as a Sirhan accomplice; and as for motive, while Sirhan was apparently angered at Kennedy's position on Israel, his acquaintances said Sirhan never spoke of that issue.  argues that the most plausible explanation is that Sirhan was programmed by a mind-control expert to shoot Kennedy. Melanson ( Who Killed Martin Luther King? ) identifies those with possible motives to kill Kennedy, among them the Mafia, J. Edgar Hoover, elements of the CIA, Jimmy Hoffa, right-wing and racist groups, and hard-line cold warriors.  Destruction of key evidence by the Los Angeles police, intimidation of witnesses by CIA operatives, and the escape of the "woman in the polka-dot dress," are all crucial elements in the author's argument that Sirhan Sirhan could not have been the only shooter.

skeptical review: Philip Melanson (author) concedes that the "evidence" of a second gunman is not the most credible; since the eyewitness reports sharply contradict any such notion, and also admits that Thane Cesar is the only likely possible second gunman, and that the arguments against that belief (that he was the second gunman) hold reliability as well.  As for Sirhan Sirhan, nobody would deny that he physically shot the shots into Kennedy, but this author, as well as other conspiracy theorists, claim that he was either a product of MK Ultra (of which there's zero evidence for), or he was simply a government agent (which there's no evidence for either). Sirhan was a Palestinian who saw his country get mutilated by Israel just a year before, and seeing that the United States supported Israel unconditionally (as they still do today), he figured that if he can get to ANY U.S. official, they would suffice (this is all according to Sirhan himself). The night of the assassination, Kennedy was out in the open, walking around very casually into crowds, so him being assassinated is not the most surprising thing in the world, folks.

Various experts have ascribed a variety of motives to CIA involvement in the assassination of both Kennedys. The secretive nature of the CIA and its reputation for high level political assassinations in the 1960s has made it a plausible perpetrator for the murder of the Kennedy brothers.

Three men seen in video and photographs of the Ambassador Hotel immediately before and after the RFK assassination were positively identified as CIA operatives, said Kevin Barrett, an author and 9/11 researcher in Madison, Wisconsin.

“The assassinations of the Kennedy brothers were largely carried out on behalf of Israel,” Barrett told Press TV on Monday.

“John F. Kennedy was dedicated to shutting down Israel’s nuclear weapons program and was killed because the Israelis, specifically [former Israeli prime minister David] Ben-Gurion believed that this was an issue of survival for Israel” he added.

“Robert Kennedy’s convicted killer Sirhan Sirhan, the patsy who was chosen to be presented to the public as the supposed killer who was actually hypnotized and had no idea what he was doing there…was used for propaganda purposes by the Zionists who murdered both of the Kennedy brothers,” Barrett said.

...Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the son of RFK, says he does not believe Sirhan had carried out the assassination and believes a second shooter did it.

Not long after the shooting, police had found a notebook at Sirhan’s home, in which he’d written: ‘RFK must die. RFK must be killed. Robert F. Kennedy must be assassinated.’  ‘Practice for what?’ asked the professor. ‘Mind control, mind control, mind control, mind control,’ wrote Sirhan. suggested only one possibility.

The Assassination of Robert F. Kennedy
A 25-year investigation by two award-winning journalists into the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy in June 1968 - and Los Angeles Police's extraordinary suppression of evidence indicating it was the result of a sinister conspiracy.

Extract:

It is a cliché that those of a certain age will always remember where they were when John F. Kennedy was assassinated.   The shooting of America’s 35th President flashed around the world on Friday, November 22, 1963. More than five decades later, it continues to exert an unremitting grip on international interest. More than two thousand books have been – and continue to be – published, dissecting every detail of what happened in Dealey Plaza, Dallas that autumn afternoon. Seemingly endless allegations and counter-claims, televised re-constructions and free-floating theories seek to solve a murder which, in the public mind at least, remains shrouded in inconsistencies and mystery – not least because the two official commissions of enquiry reached opposing conclusions on whether the murder was the act of a lone gunman or a sinister conspiracy.

 By contrast, the second Kennedy assassination almost five years later has attracted much less scrutiny. Unlike the killing of JFK, the shooting of Robert Francis Kennedy in a hotel pantry in Los Angeles was not examined by a successor to the Presidential Warren Commission, nor even by the subsequent Congressional inquiry, the House Select Committee on Assassinations. And yet the scientific facts of the RFK assassination – logistical, pathological and ballistic – have always been much more problematic than those surrounding the killing of John Kennedy.   So, too, the politics.

 Bobby Kennedy was shot and mortally wodisunded minutes after winning a key race in the battle to be nominated as the Democratic Party’s candidate to face the Republican Richard Nixon in the November 1968 Presidential election.

Victory in the California Primary did not guarantee RFK the nomination, but it went a very long way towards it. And, in that troubled and violent year, with America torn apart by race and poverty riots, and with public anger at the ever-more catastrophic Vietnam War exploding on to the streets, to his supporters and detractors alike Kennedy alone seemed to be the candidate promising radical change – at home and abroad.

 He had run a breathless and insurgent campaign, talking openly about the need for “revolution”. He energised the young, the dispossessed and those desperate for transformation. And they believed.   To those who campaigned for him, it was an article of faith that a second President Kennedy in the White House would signal an end to the blight of urban poverty and racial inequality – twin scourges which had caused riots across America in the years since John Kennedy’s assassination, and which also played a background role in the murder of Martin Luther King Jnr. in April 1968.

 But more importantly even than that, Bobby’s supporters believed he would halt the war in Vietnam; and since he had, however belatedly, appeared to signal publicly that he was unconvinced by the Warren Commission investigation of his brother’s murder, they hoped, too, for a new enquiry into the troubling inconsistencies surrounding the official account of the events in Dallas.

 But for as many who loved Robert Kennedy there seemed to be an equal number who despised him. His role as counsel to the Senate committee investigating labour racketeering had earned him the enmity of corrupt union officials, while the war he declared on organised crime as Attorney General in JFK’s administration made him a hate figure for America’s most powerful mob bosses, and contributed to his unending feud with FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover.

Following the Bay of Pigs debacle, Bobby also clashed with the CIA, and his refusal to accede to the demands of the President’s more hawkish advisors during the tense 13 days of the Cuban Missile Crisis created deep resentment within the senior ranks of the military. Nor did he make many friends on Capitol Hill: his brusque and impatient manner was viewed with deep suspicion – at the very least – by Senators, Congressmen, and much of Washington DC’s political elite.   And his championing of civil rights, racial justice and the plight of America’s farmworkers attracted the loathing of segregationists, white supremacists and some of the country’s major agricultural leaders alike.

 RFK heard this drumbeat and – particularly after John Kennedy’s assassination – knew what it could mean. As he once remarked to a reporter, “You won’t have any trouble finding my enemies. They’re all over town.”[1].

 Robert Kennedy’s removal from the political stage that night in June 1968 brought comfort to his enemies, just as it destroyed all the hopes of those who believed in him and the promise of change he represented.

For those political reasons the shooting in the Ambassador Hotel pantry was a crime which demanded a thorough and honest enquiry.

But beside that there was an unanswerable scientific case for a rigorous forensic investigation.   Much more clearly than in the JFK assassination, the fundamental facts of RFK’s killing simply did not fit the official conclusion – that the murder was carried out by a lone gunman, Sirhan Bishara Sirhan. Within minutes of the shooting, evidence emerged which suggested that Sirhan had not acted alone; within weeks Los Angeles Police Department and the District Attorney’s Office knew that they could not reconcile the findings of the official autopsy with the testimony of key eyewitness to the shooting. But although the police and prosecutors publicly promised a scrupulous and transparent enquiry, they did the precise opposite. For almost twenty years.

We came into the case as television producers, separately and a decade apart. We were not the first journalists to raise questions about the evidence: in the years immediately after RFK’s murder a handful of courageous reporters and (sometimes eccentric) citizen-investigators began flagging up substantial inconsistencies in the claims made by Los Angeles Police Department and the District Attorney. But it appears that we are amongst the longest-lasting.

 Tim’s Tate 1992 documentary for Channel 4 television in Britain, and A&E networks in   he US, was the first to broadcast tape recordings made by LAPD which revealed it to have distorted, falsified and suppressed evidence which suggested that a second gunman had murdered Robert Kennedy.

 Fifteen years later, Brad’s 2007 documentary for the Discovery Times Channel presented scientific proof of that second gunman: forensic audio analysis of a tape Brad uncovered – the only recording to have captured the sounds of the shooting in the pantry – demonstrated unequivocally that at least 13 shots were fired; many more than could have come from Sirhan Sirhan’s 8-shot revolver.

Since those films we have – individually and later in tandem – spent decades painstakingly examining all the evidence. At times it has seemed a herculean and never-ending task, involving years carefully examining and cross-referencing tens of thousands of original documents, conducting forensic analysis of rare audio, film footage, video tape and photographs, and tracking down crucial witnesses.

This book, then, is the product of more than a quarter of a century’s patient investigative journalism. What is most striking about the Robert Kennedy assassination is that the fundamental evidence – eye-witness, ballistic, forensic and, above all, scientific – points unequivocally to the conclusion that Sirhan Sirhan did not fire the fatal bullets in the pantry. Which raises two more troublesome questions: who did – and why ?

We realise that positing answers to these questions may lead to accusations of conspiracy theorising.   But, although we have found clear evidence of genuine conspiracies, we are cautious about claiming that these alone offer a solution to the mystery.   Our approach has always been to ascertain the facts and then to pursue them wherever they may lead, however uncomfortable that may be.



The murder of Robert F. Kennedy was the final American political assassination of a turbulent decade. It, more than any other single act, signalled the end of the optimism and idealism which briefly flourished in the 1960s. It changed the course of both the United States and much of the world beyond its shores. For those reasons – as well as for natural justice – the events of June 1968 demanded an honest, open and thorough investigation by police and prosecutors.

1971 John Kerry testimony

John Kerry testimony 'product of KGB disinformation' - WND  Jul 11, 2013 · Secretary of State John Kerry’s 1971 testimony before a Senate panel claiming American troops in Vietnam regularly committed war crimes against civilians was a product of a Soviet KGB disinformation campaign, according to the highest-ranking Soviet-bloc defector.

February 26, 2004 As a spy chief and a general in the former Soviet satellite of Romania, I produced the very same vitriol Kerry repeated to the U.S. Congress almost word for word and planted it in leftist movements throughout Europe. KGB chairman Yuri Andropov managed our anti-Vietnam War operation. On April 12, 1971, Kerry told the U.S. Congress that American soldiers claimed to him that they had, “raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned on the power, cut off limbs, blew up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in a fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan.”  The exact sources of that assertion should be tracked down. Kerry also ought to be asked who, exactly, told him any such thing, and what it was, exactly, that they said they did in Vietnam. Statutes of limitation now protect these individuals from prosecution for any such admissions. Or did Senator Kerry merely hear allegations of that sort as hearsay bandied about by members of antiwar groups (much of which has since been discredited)? To me, this assertion sounds exactly like the disinformation line that the Soviets were sowing worldwide throughout the Vietnam era. KGB priority number one at that time was to damage American power, judgment, and credibility. One of its favorite tools was the fabrication of such evidence as photographs and “news reports” about invented American war atrocities. These tales were purveyed in KGB-operated magazines that would then flack them to reputable news organizations. Often enough, they would be picked up. News organizations are notoriously sloppy about verifying their sources. All in all, it was amazingly easy for Soviet-bloc spy organizations to fake many such reports and spread them around the free world.  As a spy chief and a general in the former Soviet satellite of Romania, I produced the very same vitriol Kerry repeated to the U.S. Congress almost word for word and planted it in leftist movements throughout Europe

May 4, 2001 an op-ed in The Daily Oklahoman authored by Baraka laid out his opposition to the death penalty and the sentencing of Timothy McVeigh to death for his part in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. He wrote, "[Amnesty International] has dedicated 40 years to working with and on behalf of victims on a daily basis, we have the utmost respect and sympathy for the suffering of the families and loved ones of victims of violence—suffering that deserves compassion, respect and justice. [...] However, the killing of McVeigh, like all other executions, will be done for reasons of political expediency and retribution rather than reasons of justice. For while family members of victims are entitled to respect and compassion, courts should not be allowed to become forums for retaliation. This degrades not only our system of justice but also ourselves as human beings, as we then become little better than the killers we seek to condemn."[16]
