|From the September-October 2000 issue (Vol. 7 No. 6)|
In this issue, Lisa Pease concludes her two-part article on the role of CIA Counterintelligence Chief James Angleton in relation to Lee Harvey Oswald and the cover-up which ensued after the assassination. Lisa amasses evidence here to reveal Angleton's hand in the Mexico City charade, the Warren Commission deception, the bizarre Nosenko episode, the media obstruction and the infamous Hunt memorandum which forms the backbone of Mark Lane's book Plausible Denial. This piece, combined with Lisa's earlier article from last issue, forms the definitive look at the legendary Angleton's probable role in the crime. That it took literally decades for such an article to be written shows how effective the man was in covering his tracks. The article is a landmark in assassination literature in making a direct and circumstantial case against a high level suspect in the JFK assassination.
It seems that just a short time ago Probe was devoting three consecutive issues to the dramatic trial Jowers vs. King in Memphis. As our readers know, the trial ended in a conspiracy verdict against the government. William Pepper put on a formidable case for a high level plot that took the life of the great civil rights and anti-war activist Martin Luther King. That verdict was attacked and/or ignored by the media and their sweetheart journalist Gerald Posner. It seems that the Department of Justice took their lead from Posner. Barry Kowalski, at the request of Coretta Scott King via Bill Clinton went to work on a so-called threshold investigation. As noted author Doug Valentine shows here, it is open to question whether Kowalski was biased from the start. It is hard to believe that he was not. Whatever the case, as Valentine reports, the DOJ report is a horrible whitewash of the facts that Pepper proved in court. It shows that the Justice Department is no place to entrust an investigation into such a serious crime of state.
Journalist Max Holland would probably like Kowalski's work. Gary Aguilar dissects Holland here and gives him a well-deserved flogging on the facts. Holland's own sacred government sources won't and don't save him on that score. Elsewhere, in material excerpted from James Fetzer's latest book, Murder In Dealey Plaza, Aguilar makes his best case yet that the medical evidence proves the conspiracy.
As our subscribers know by now, this will be our last edition of Probe. It has been a pleasure writing for such an enthusiastic and appreciative audience. Note that our Web site will live on, our catalog is being transferred to the Last Hurrah Bookshop, and we will have a book based on the best articles we published coming out next year. Watch our Web site next year for information on how to get it. For Lisa and myself, thank you for a mutually beneficial relationship. We would like to think that together, we made Probe the best publication ever on the assassination and related matters. We hope that those with a sincere interest in the truth on these matters continue to move the research forward from this point.
