Reading Time: 18 minutes What possible connection could there have been between George H.W. Bush and the assassination of John F. Kennedy? Or between the C.I.A. and the assassination? Or between Bush and the C.I.A.? For some people, apparently, making such connections was as dangerous as letting one live wire touch another. Here, in anticipation of the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination in November, is the eighth part of a ten-part series of excerpts from WhoWhatWhy editor Russ Baker’s bestseller, Family of Secrets: The Bush Dynasty, America’s Invisible Government and the Hidden History of the Last Fifty Years. The story is a real-life thriller.
Reading Time: 9 minutes Ernst Titovets, a Soviet-era friend of Lee Harvey Oswald, is being blocked by the US government from visiting Dallas for a lecture on the 50th anniversary of JFK’s death. Strange, because what the man has to say fundamentally supports the US establishment’s preferred line on Oswald—that he was just a man on his own—hence not working for intelligence service. So why block such a cooperative figure? Is it crazy to wonder whether this is actually designed to draw further attention to what Titovets has to say?
