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. L. Hunt":

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.

AJAMU BARAKA opposed the death penalty for  Timothy McVeigh in 2001

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]
