CIA Killers

 Because of the people he knew, because of the events that took place, he spent a good number of years producing, I must say, just an extraordinary work, a book that is not only scholarly and well documented but fascinating to read and, I would say, a very important book to read, too. It's called Mary's Mosaic: The CIA Conspiracy to Murder John F. Kennedy, Mary Pinchot Meyer, and Their Vision for World Peace.

JANNEY: Well, Mary was an extraordinary human being and an even more extraordinary woman. She grew up right at the time – came out of college right at the time of World War II and she had always been an ardent pacifist. And her life trajectory, shall we say, took her on an extraordinary path, in a sense, bringing her together with two of the most promising men of that generation, both of whom, subsequent to World War II, I think were really destined to be high-level political players throughout their adult life.
