What we know now: The CIA and FBI have been corrupt for seventy years• American Thinker
On December 26, Lew Rockwell wrote a column about Tucker Carlson's December 15 program in which he discussed the most recent batch of documents that relate to the JFK assassination. Some are still withheld by the State Department. Why? Carlson said he had spoken to someone familiar with the remaining documents, who told him unequivocally that the CIA was indeed involved with the killing of Kennedy. We all know the basics — that within forty-eight hours of the assassination, Jack Ruby had killed Lee Harvey Oswald on camera. Ruby himself died shortly thereafter. We were told that Oswald was the lone assassin despite volumes of evidence that showed that that could not have been true.
A week after the assassination, Lyndon Johnson chose thirteen men to "investigate" the crime. They were called the Warren Commission after Chief Justice Earl Warren. Who were these men? One of them was Allen Dulles, a former director of the CIA, who had been fired by Kennedy two years earlier after the Bay of Pigs fiasco. It was Dulles who had founded MK-ULTRA, a top-secret CIA project in which the agency conducted hundreds of clandestine experiments — sometimes on unwitting U.S. citizens — to assess the potential use of LSD and other drugs for mind control, information-gathering, and psychological torture. Though Project MK-ULTRA lasted from 1953 until about 1973, details of the illicit program didn't become public until 1975, during a congressional investigation into widespread illegal CIA activities within the United States and around the world.
