41. The JFK literature: some recent titles [Lobster #30 (Dec 1995)]
... Armstrong and Roberts have produced a comprehensive if uncritical A-Z of deaths that usefully supplements and enlarges upon the 'Convenient Deaths' chapter in Jim Marrs' Crossfire (New York: Pocket Books, 1993), pp. 555-66, the fullest account preceeding the present work. But why include names like J. Edgar Hoover, LBJ, John Connally, and others who simply died of old age years later? BROWN, WALT. The J.F .K . Assassination Quiz Book: Test Your Knowledge. Santa Barbara, CA: Open Archive Press, 1995. 203 pps. Foreword by Cyril H. Wecht and Gary L. Aguilar. Treachery in Dallas ...

42. Destiny Betrayed, by James DiEugenio (Book review) (Summer 2013) [Lobster #65 Summer 2013) (free)] [Free Article]
... this meant. It may have had nothing to do with killing JFK. And as we get close to Dealey Plaza, there is nothing linking either the Cubans or the CIA to the events that day in Dallas. The only member of the cast of characters definitely identified around the assassination is Jack Ruby; and while in prison Ruby identified LBJ as the man behind the shooting. Although I disagree with DiEugenio's thesis, this is a really good book, with much new and newish material. Highly recommended. Robin Ramsay ...

43. Southeast Asia: A Testament (Book Review) [Lobster #45 (Summer 2003)]
... when he is describing his travels in the region in the 1950s: the CIA was still, more or less, a secret organisation; but a lot of information has been produced since then and his ignorance in the late 1990s when he wrote this is difficult to comprehend or excuse. Crucially, he accepts the received view that JFK and LBJ were the same: he is apparently unaware of JFK's plan to pull the US out of Vietnam. 'Nor is there any reasons to suppose that things would have been any different had Kennedy not been killed, for he was every bit as rigid a Cold Warrior as Johnson. ' ( p. 188) This simply is not true ...

... Kefauver was dumped by the party's northern liberals, led by Hubert Humphrey. Humphrey had first come to public prominence as a gang-busting mayor. Only many years later would it be known how many contributions Meyer Lansky had made to Humphrey's various campaigns. (When Humphrey later took his oath as vice president of the US in 1965 under LBJ, the Bible he swore on was held for him by one of his old patrons, Minneapolis vice lord Fred Gates.) Adlai Stevenson won the nomination and was hammered by Eisenhower the following November. Truman had even vetoed Stevenson's suggestion that Kefauver be placed on the ticket as vice-presidential candidate. Kefauver's reform aspirations died with his ...

... , elsewhere in the world his employers were acting as the global enforcer for American capital and the piles of peasant bodies were growing. There are only two things which raised my eyebrows. The first is the author's claim that in the summer of 1962 JFK approved the plan to run the coup in Brazil which actually happened in 1964, under LBJ. Whitney cites Tim Weiner's Legacy of Ashes (Doubleday, 2007) which shows that JFK was discussing discussing the possibility of allowing a military coup in Brazil and approved spending millions of dollars there to undermine the Brazilian president, Joao Goulart. JFK may indeed have approved the coup plan but the evidence of that final step is not there ...

... and (b ) that the government supported the US war in Vietnam; and on this the evidence is still ambiguous. It is true that British components of the Anglo-American intelligence and surveillance system, notably some GCHQ bases in the Far East, provided intelligence to the US. But despite a great deal of arm-twisting from LBJ, and despite Wilson's utter dependence on the US at this point for financial assistance to defend the value of the pound, Harold Wilson refused to send even a token force to Vietnam. (Apologists for Maurice Oldfield hint that he was instrumental in keeping the British state out of Vietnam.) The paragraph of Pilger's I have quoted illustrates ...

47. Beware the proven lawyer! [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... Read this again, it's worth repeating:........ more than enough time to reach a conclusion that was obvious to nearly everyone involved in the investigation within days – that a nut had killed Kennedy, and he himself had been killed by another nut, with the possibility of a conspiracy being highly implausible. LBJ could have saved himself the trouble of setting up a commission and saved the Republic a serious amount of dollars by simply parachuting in über-attorney Bugliosi. By the Monday after the assassination it could all have been done and dusted and normal service would have been resumed. We could all, to use a phrase that Bugliosi frequently hurls ...

The launch of Radio London had, though, been planned prior to polling day. It is not clear why Birch and Radio London needed the approval of LBJ to carry out a private commercial activity outside UK territorial waters. Birch was previously an accounts manager at J Walter Thompson, a leading advertising agency that some years later would be shown to have had links to the CIA.2 0 Radio London itself, of course, had been set up with advice from US commercial radio magnate Gordon ...

... assembled delegates enjoyed an evening of live music from Bad Company. Much of this was unremarkable. The Labour Party always has overseas visitors at Conference. Some of them are ex-Presidents Nelson Mandela for instance. Celebrities have occasionally dropped by. But it is instructive to think back just a few years. Would we have seen, say LBJ and Robert Redford in the same venue Blackpool in 1972, perhaps being introduced by that years Conference Chair, Tony Benn? Perhaps the episode represents a good illustration of how Americanised, or how celebrity obsessed (or both) British politics has become in recent years. An alternative view would be that the little speeches made from the stage ...

... ), who knows? Nearly twenty-five years later the argument is still unresolved as to whether Ferrie's final exit was natural or un-natural. Meanwhile in Washington the Powers That Be were showing an abiding concern and interest in the Garrison investigation. President Johnson called Acting Attorney General Ramsay Clark and spoke to him about Ferrie's death. LBJ was 'very concerned about this matter' and wanted full details. On March 1st Ferrie was buried and Garrison announced the arrest of Clay L. Shaw for 'participation in a conspiracy to murder John F. Kennedy'. Shaw was a prominent social and business figure in New Orleans, well liked and respected. Nearly two years earlier he ...
