Michael Le Flem reviews Stephen Kinzer’s Poisoner in Chief: Sidney Gottlieb and the CIA Search for Mind Control (Henry Holt and Co., 2019)

Could it be that the terrible things that occurred in Italy in the postwar era were the result of the people responsible for running the show having cut their teeth on the real war, where it was clear that “anything went” in order to win?

Using powerful work by authors like Daniele Ganser and Phillip Willan about Gladio, and Michele Metta’s revelatory volume on Permindex, Rob Couteau’s milestone article shows how the murders of Kennedy, and Moro and the attempts on De Gaulle were not isolated events.

John Newman, Countdown to Darkness, Volume 2

In my opinion, Newman offers one of the best medium-length treatments of the Congo crisis I have read, writes Jim DiEugenio.

As with many things, Jim Garrison was the first investigator to elucidate a three-sided conspiracy to assassinate President Kennedy, the three participants being the CIA, the Cuban exiles, and the Mob. He had done this unearthing during his inquiry, but he formally announced it in a famous cover story for New Orleans Magazine in 1976. The Church Committee's exposure of the CIA/Mafia plots to kill Castro filled this in with the figures of John Roselli and Santo Trafficante. And it also outlined the close relationship between CIA officer Bill Harvey and Roselli. Tony Summers made this triangular plot a feature of his book Conspiracy, first published in 1980. In the nineties, Fidel Castro's chief of security, Fabian Escalante, began to publish and speak on the subject of JFK's murder and he also advocated for this view of the plot.

Paul Bleau here synthesizes the decades-long history of cooperation between Cubans, organized crime, U.S. intelligence and corporate interests, and expands it into what amounts to a visual essay in order to dispel the notion that such a partnership was too complicated to have been behind the assassination of President Kennedy.
