Dear JFK Murder Solved Forum Members and Readers:

"Dr. John M. Newman argues that real progress in solving the JFK Assassination will not come to those awaiting a
smoking-gun revelation, but will be possible if we first have an understanding of the internal language of US
government cryptonyms and pseudonyms. Only by establishing the true identity of the actors - and their locations
and activities - can we hope to separate fact from fiction in this mystifying saga."

I strongly agree with Dr. Newman's assessment that there will be no "...smoking-gun revelation..." To believe or
think so is utter folly in My Opinion, as do those Members of our Advisory Board, some of whom I have communicated
and studied with for several decades.

My Favorite Metaphor has long been that many/most JFK Researcher's believe/feel/think that All of the Pieces of the
JFK Puzzle have been gathered and spread out on a vey large table, and that each individual adds and/or arranges, or
rearranges the pieces of the puzzle to replicate the picture on the Puzzle Box in the Mind's Eye of Each Individual JFK
Researcher. And Presto Chango - that's it - The Final, Really Real Last Chapter On The JFK Removal.

For me, in My Mind's Eye, nothing could be further from the Real, Total Truth. I still think that many/most JFK
Researcher's are chasing their own tails and tales.

I still actually think that 95% of the JFK Research Community hasn't even scraped the surface of the JFK Removal.

For example, today we learn that "...At the time of the assassination, Dallas Mayor Earl Cabell, brother of one-time
Deputy Director of Central Intelligence, Charles P. Cabell, had been a CIA asset since 1956,"



For starters: accomplishments, ammunition, associations, connections, cryptonyms, factions, groups, information,
insight, missions, players, pseudonyms, teams, weapons, etc., that James Earl Sutton-Files has been mentioning for
decades are now slowly starting to see the light of day. Some of, but not all of Files' Interviews were first made public
in 1992, and then re-done in 2003. Yet many/most of the JFK Research Community have never even deeply delved
into the Files' Material. So pathetic, but so very true. (08.03.2017, BB).



Countdown to October 26, 2017:

For decades, those investigating the assassination of President John F. Kennedy have been eagerly anticipating the
release of previously withheld documents scheduled for later this year, October 26. One major question that remains
is whether President Donald Trump will use his authority to further keep these documents from the public eye.(1)


The potential for discovery represented by the recent and upcoming release of remaining government files on the Kennedy
assassination was realized this week with the startling revelation that beginning in 1956, Earle Cabell, brother of Deputy
Director of Central Intelligence Charles P. Cabell and Mayor of Dallas at the time JFK was assassinated, was a CIA asset.

We are now able to review his 10/17/56 CIA Secrecy Agreement, his CIA 201 file cover sheet, his 5/13/57 CIA Personality
201 File Request, and a cover sheet indicating that the House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) reviewed his
201 file. The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) master listing of files scheduled for release indicates
that the Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB) classified these records as “Not Believed Relevant” (NBR). ARRB
Director Judge John Tunheim, speaking at the National Press Club during a CAPA sponsored event this past March, said
that he now believes that many of the NBR-designated documents are indeed relevant. With the benefit of hindsight, that
may have been an understatement.

The passage of many days, months, or years may be necessary for information to be placed in the correct context and
understood as being significant. The example of George Joannides, who was brought out of retirement to act as liaison
between the Agency and the HSCA, is a case in point. Joannides’ role as the CIA case officer for the DRE (Revolutionary
Student Directorate), an anti-Castro group with which Lee Harvey Oswald had interacted in the summer of 1963 in New
Orleans, was withheld by the agency throughout the term of the HSCA which was investigating CIA connections to the
group. When asked directly if Joannides could assist the HSCA by identifying the officer who had handled the DRE
during the summer of 1963, he responded by saying, “I’ll look into that.” Perhaps the CIA did not feel that revealing
Joannides’ true identity to the Committee investigators was “assassination-related.”

The official ARRB classification “assassination-related” was not limited to issues or evidence pertaining exclusively to the
scene of the crime.

Dr. John Newman argues that real progress in solving the JFK assassination will not to come to those who await a smoking
-gun revelation, but will be possible if we first have an understanding of the internal language of US government cryptonyms
and pseudonyms. Only by establishing the true identities of the actors — and their locations and activities — can we hope
to separate fact from fiction in this mystifying saga.

That has been his goal in a series of publications on America’s untold history over the last three decades. As a retired strategic
intelligence cryptologic analyst for US Army Intelligence and the former military assistant to the director of the National Security
Agency, Newman has some unique qualifications. His works on the cold war and America’s involvement in Vietnam have been
recognized by many, including Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. and former CIA Director William Colby to be among the most authoritative
and significant yet published. In past publications he correctly foretold what we are now seeing in the 2017 release of JFK records.

His 1991 book, JFK and Vietnam, documents Kennedy’s navigation of a dangerous course through cold war hot spots and a
very divided administration. What eventually emerged is an astonishingly dishonorable deception: a deliberate attempt to
manipulate the President of the United States into authorizing a war policy to which he was fundamentally opposed. The media
firestorm created by that thesis, that JFK was committed to withdrawing from Vietnam at the time of his death, and obstructions
such as the book’s suppression by Warner Books after only five months on the bookshelves, did little to dissuade Newman from
pursuing the story wherever it might lead.

It led to Oswald and the CIA. Published in 1995, his second book used the enormous collection of federal agency documents
newly released by the ARRB to explore the CIA’s keen operational interest in Lee Harvey Oswald. It focused on the people
and organizations who opened and maintained Oswald’s intelligence files for four years prior to the president’s assassination,
and it provided evidence to explore the question of whether Oswald might have been a false defector when he left the US for
the Soviet Union in 1959. [See Countdown to Darkness, Chapters One and Eighteen for a detailed account of that story.]

Newman re-entered the JFK case in 2015 with the publication of Where Angels Tread Lightly: The Assassination of President
Kennedy, Volume One. The updated and expanded second edition of JFK and Vietnam appeared in January 2017, as did
Volume Two in Newman’s series on the assassination, Countdown to Darkness.

The CIA was not the only federal agency to involve itself with organizing, recruiting and utilizing anti-Castro paramilitary groups,
but it may have been the one that invested the most time and money. JFK assassination research has focused a great deal of
attention on the Agency’s handling and control of such groups and the activists who made up their memberships. The CIA
officers, agents and assets who ran those operations are also worthy of our attention. Volume II offered bold new predictions
about the pseudonyms and cryptonyms used for the CIA officers and contract agents who dared — without diplomatic protection
— to run the stay-behind nets inside Cuba after the January 1961 break in relations with the US. Three men whose careers
would become increasingly important to our understanding of operations being directed against Castro by the CIA are Emilio
Americo Rodriguez, Tony Sforza, and James Joseph O’Mailia.

Countdown to Darkness identified the CIA’s principal deep-cover stay-behind agent in Cuba, Emilio Americo Rodriquez, as
the person behind the CIA cryptonym AMIRE-1. In the CIA’s long search for reliable recruits to employ as human intelligence
who would accept dangerous assignments there could hardly have been anyone more qualified or better suited than Emilio
Rodriguez, a multi-lingual young Cuban with American citizenship who approached the Agency in Washington in late 1959
offering to serve in the fight against Castro and a communist takeover of Cuba. By May of 1960, Rodriguez had been cleared
for operational employment and was in place in Havana. Newman ascertained that Rodriguez used the pseudonym “Eugenio”
for his stay-behind net in Cuba, that Rodriguez’s work for American businesses in Cuba had been used to provide a cover,
and that his stay-behind partner in Cuba was CIA contract paramilitary agent, Tony Sforza. Sforza would become notorious
for his Agency-related exploits as the man who recruited Fidel Castro’s sister Juanita, and who worked closely with JMWAVE
(the CIA station in Miami) officers Ted Shackley and David Sanchez Morales. Sforza posed as a casino gambler named
“Frank Stevens.”

Countdown to Darkness also revealed that the pseudonym (for use in CIA reports and files) “Peter J. DiGerveno” belonged
to Rodriguez while he was assigned to the CIA’s JMWAVE station in Miami. Sforza was the person behind the CIA cryptonym
AMRYE-1, and was assigned the pseudonym “Henry J. Sloman” for his stay-behind work in Cuba and for use in his
assignment at the JMWAVE station.

Into the Storm (Volume III, due out in December 2018) will reveal that both Rodriguez and Sforza worked closely with an
American CIA contract agent in Havana, James Joseph O’Mailia, whose cover was as a professor of English at the University
of Villanueva. By early 1960, O’Mailia had become the Agency’s principal go-between and cut-out to the Christian Democratic
Movement (MDC) group and others being groomed to sabotage the Cuban economy and overthrow Castro.

During his research for Volume III, Newman discovered that O’Mailia was the person behind the CIA cryptonym AMCRACKLE-1,
and that CIA documents used the pseudonym “Gordon M. Biniaris” for his work with the anti-Castro groups in Cuba.

O’Mailia’s profile in Havana matched that of a man using the name “Joe Melton.” Melton, according to Antonio Veciana — a
militant leader of the paramilitary exile group, Alpha 66, who was involved in terrorist acts and attempts to assassinate Castro
— was the American who trained him in sabotage and psychological warfare operations.

Veciana alleges that CIA propaganda expert David Phillips — using the name “Maurice Bishop” — was present for several of
the training sessions. Moreover, Veciana has claimed that he met with Oswald and Phillips in a Dallas office building in
September 1963 — shortly before Oswald went to Mexico City seeking a Cuban visa. Earlier this year the publication of
Antonio Veciana’s memoir, Trained to Kill, was received very positively by some reviewers; for others, it has raised more
questions than it answers. Familiarity with figures such as Rodriguez, Sforza and O’Mailia is required if we are to effectively
evaluate claims that are presented as facts.

NARA released several records with Rodriguez’s AMIRE-1 cryptonym in the clear and the diagram for “Eugenio’s” stay-behind
net in Cuba. On his net diagram were the names “Henry,” for “Henry Sloman” (Tony Sforza), and “Happy,” who may have been
James O’Mailia. With NARA’s July 2017 release of JFK records, we now have the opportunity to check the predictions and
assessments set forth in Countdown to Darkness. Many of the estimates in Newman’s Volumes II and III have been confirmed
by the recently released files. We are getting dozens of crypts, pseudos, country digraphs, and operational codenames. In
many instances their presence alongside of the already released documents permits many more new discoveries. An overall
assessment will have to wait until everything has been released.

All three CIA operatives in Cuba were fortunate to escape from the island. Rodriguez and O’Mailia were arrested and
imprisoned by Castro’s secret police. Sforza went underground until his escape by boat in mid-July 1961. Rodriguez, who
had been arrested and held for six days before the invasion, was permitted to leave on an airplane to New Orleans at the
time Sforza fled the island. O’Mailia, who was arrested during the exile invasion, was held in prison for three months and
then he, too, was permitted to leave in mid-July. If Cuban authorities had realized the prominent roles these three figures
would play in the CIA’s anti-Casto campaigns, they would certainly not ever have been allowed to leave Cuba alive.

Newman’s work not only resolves the multiple identities of the key CIA officers and agents who risked their lives in this
Cuban-American drama, but also recounts the circumstances in which their flight from Cuba took place in the context of the
disastrous Bay of Pigs. The claims, by top advisors to Presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy, that an exile invasion would
trigger an uprising of the Cuban population against Castro were known to be false by those who made them.

In Volume II, Newman makes a persuasive case that the exile invasion was designed to fail in order to pave the way for a
full-scale US invasion of the island. Castro’s victory on the beachhead in 1961 was blamed on the failure of the Kennedy
administration to provide sufficient air support for the invaders. Along with the diplomatic resolution to the Cuban missile
crisis in 1962, these purported “betrayals” of those who died or were captured at Bahía de Cochinos would, in turn, form
the context and a possible motive for the murder of the president.

So, here we are in 2017, the year that we are promised will solve some mysteries, answer some questions, and perhaps
settle the case once and for all. Or not. We can be confident that some details of the JFK assassination story will no longer
be hidden from us. Revelations such as those cited in this article provide valuable new pieces to our collective understanding;
they allow us to measure our progress by improving upon previous assessments, and they assist us in getting closer to our
ultimate objective: to put the puzzle together.

And you never know, there may be some other surprises in store for us. It is not unprecedented for materials that were
thought to be lost or that were never documented at all to suddenly appear. When the son of the staff director to the Warren
Commission contacted the ARRB and said that his father had died and there were 18 boxes of Warren Commission
documents in his basement, did they want them? The answer was, “Well, yes we do.”

A final note of caution: Documents don’t always mean what they say or say what they mean. What they purport to reveal is
seldom complete and may not be accurate, perhaps even false, especially when they are issued by intelligence agencies
whose tradecraft includes deception and maintenance of “plausible deniability.” In cases where something that should be
there is missing — such as the disappearance of Volume 5 of Oswald’s Security files — the significance of what is absent,
what Professor Peter Dale Scott refers to as the negative template, is also informative.

[1] Postponement beyond the Oct. 26, 2017 deadline set 25 years ago by the JFK Assassination Records Act is possible if
the president certifies that it is necessary to prevent an identifiable harm to military, defense, intelligence, law enforcement
or foreign relations and that harm outweighs the public interest in disclosure.

As always, I strongly recommend that you first read, research, and study material completely
yourself about a Subject Matter, and then formulate your own Opinions and Theories.

Any additional analyses, interviews, investigations, readings, research, studies, thoughts,
or writings on any aspect of this Subject Matter ?

Bear in mind that we are trying to attract and educate a Whole New Generation of JFK
Researchers who may not be as well versed as you.

If you have not seen it yet, this video is a MUST:


Warning! this is heavy on the brain however! You need to put time aside when you are alert and awake to properly take it in. It expands on what Bruce explains above, but Newman details how the use of pseudonyms and cryptonyms in the official CIA record had led a trail of deceit to obscure what was really going on. A real eye opener.
