The Kennedy Assassination – Harriman connection
The Bureaucracy is defined as the systematic elimination, destruction, or avoidance of corrective feedback. The entire Kennedy Assassination and follow-up whitewashing, known as the “Warren Report” of the incident reeks of bureaucracy. This is how the BORG functions: if we wanted your opinion we would be giving it to you. Historian Steven Alvis goes over the other side of the story.
Historian & CFR member, Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr., in his book on the Kennedy presidency, A Thousand Days, wrote that Kennedy had no part in the “New York establishment.”
One of the movers in the “New York establishment” was Averell Harriman (administrator of Lend- Lease, ambassador to Soviet Union, Truman’s Secretary of Commerce, Governor of New York, negotiator of the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, Vietnam peace chief negotiator, & founder of the magazine that became Newsweek). One of Averell Harriman’s businesses was Brown Bros. Harriman & Co., one of the country’s leading private banking institutions. Its younger partners included Prescott Bush, father of President George H.W. Bush and grandfather to George W. Bush, had ties to Adolf Hitler. Both Harriman and Bush had assets seized as a result of trading with the NAZI’s.
Averell Harriman (1891-1986) was the son of Union Pacific railroad robber baron and shipping magnate E. H. Harriman. Born to riches, young Averell attended Yale University where he was initiated into the infamous Skull & Bones secret society. In the 1920′s, Harriman and Bones buddy Robert Lehman organized Pan American Airlines. By 1932, Harriman sat on the boards of 54 corporations, including Mobil Oil.
Who Killed the President? Harriman dictated policy in both the Kennedy and Johnson administrations. Known in his later years as the “Old Crocodile,” Harriman bullied his way even in the White House. In the Kennedy admin, Averell Harriman was made undersecretary of state for political affairs. The big issue in mid-1963 was Vietnam. “Consensus reigned in the East Coast ‘Establishment.’ . . . in late August 1963, as the United States i.e.: Harriman moved to oust the South Vietnamese leader Diem it had backed for the past nine years . . . American officials i.e.: Harriman always opposed to an early settlement and possessing an agreement with London to work to prevent one, had seen no reason to feel particularly fearful of the prospect Choosing War: The Lost Chance for Peace and the Escalation of War in Vietnam, , p.42.”
The East Coast ‘Establishment’ was in agreement with “London” about pursuing war in Vietnam, and therefore senior officials at the White House had no fear to proceed with overthrowing the elected government of our ally, South Vietnam. Without presidential approval and behind Kennedy’s back while he was vacationing at Hyannis Port, Harriman and his cronies cabled Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., the American ambassador in Saigon, to green light South Vietnamese officers to launch a coup to overthrow President Diem of South Vietnam (Cable 243).
John Kennedy was outraged, and in the ensuing Executive Branch furor over the August 24 cable, Attorney General Robert Kennedy blamed Harriman for this “major mistake,” realizing that “the government was broken in two in a very disturbing way (Robert F. Kennedy, In His Own Words, p.397).”
The power-behind-the-throne who ordained one assassination ordained the other. Besides offending Harriman, John F. Kennedy had signed his own death warrant by defying the shadow government in four fatal objectives:
1. Offending the Fed — He authorized the printing of $450 billion in non-debt “United States Notes”, a move to dismantle the Federal Reserve System (Executive Order 11,110—1963).
2. Offending Big Oil — He moved to rescind the special tax privileges of the oil industry.
3. Offending War Industrialists — He vowed the removal of all 12,000 U.S. servicemen (advisors) from Vietnam by the end of 1965, a heavy blow to the military-industrial complex and the helicopter division of Bell- Textron, Inc., which sold over 5,000 copters for the war; Bell-Textron’s R&D director was Nazi war criminal General Walter Dornberger.
4. Offending the CIA — He fired Allen Dulles (CFR) from his post as director of the CIA, and determined in October 1963 to “splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds”. These wise decisions made Kennedy “a national security threat.”
November 22, 1963, Witnesses heard a shot and saw a puff of smoke coming from a fence on the grassy knoll, where police and others converged immediately after, as shown on photos and film. A large-caliber bullet slug was found opposite the knoll on the far side of Elm St., surrounded by bits of apparent brain tissue. Shots were coming from various directions. No need exists for Arlen Specter’s “Magic Bullet” as hypothesized in the Warren Report. The “policeman” behind the fence on the grassy knoll has been identified as Roscoe White, a contract killer for the CIA through U.S. Naval Intelligence, code name MANDARIN. White had previously executed 10 foreign officials for the “company,” and had worked with Oswald at the CIA’s U- 2 control station at Atsugi AFB in Japan. White’s wife had worked for Jack Ruby.
White apparently killed Officer J.D. Tippett to initiate an “All Points/Shoot on Sight” alert against the patsy Oswald. Dallas Police Officer J. D. Tippit (1924–1963).
A message cable in the deceased White’s effects instruct him to “eliminate a national security threat to world peace. Destination will be Houston, Austin, Dallas. . . . C. Bowers. RE Rifle.” A follow-up cable, dated September 1963, says: “Dallas destination chosen. Your place is hidden within the [police] department.”
