J. Edgar Hoover

J. Edgar Hoover - The Untouchable

You can’t get much closer to the truth (?) than you will today because by this time next week we will have reached the conclusion of the conspiracy theory, COUP D”ETAT.  Over the past several months, week by week,  inch by convoluted inch the theory has taken us on a path leading to the highest offices in the land.  Haven’t you been amazed at the array of characters and players in this unfolding tale.  Gangsters, CIA, Mafia, FBI, politicians, actresses, dictators and the list goes on….This week’s title: The Untouchable and  I don’ t mean Elliot Ness!  Who was the most untouchable of all – J. Edgar Hoover.

The Untouchable

J. Edgar Hoover hated the Kennedys and refused to cooperate with them in their crackdown on organized crime, because, in his opinion, organized crime didn’t exist. Yet he spent his vacations gambling at Delmar racetrack and relaxing at the Del Charro motel, notorious hangouts for top-level mobsters (and both owned by his pals, the Texas Murchisons), and he often met privately with Mafia “Prime Minister” Frank Costello.  It has been alleged that Hoover had a secret hit squad of mob assassins recruited with Costello’s help.  The day after Kennedy died, the FBI taped gangster Chuckie Inglese telling his boss, Sam Giancano, “two months from now the FBI will be like it was five years ago.  They won’t be around no more.”

Hoover’s power resided in the confidential files.  During the  Warren Commission Investigation, for instance, he collected derogatory materials on Commission members and their staff.  He also investigated the sex lives of prominent people, especially homosexuals, but ironically, it is rumored that Hoover’s own alleged  homosexuality may have subjected him to blackmail by gangster, Meyer Lansky.

Private corporations, government, and the media were infiltrated with ex-FBI agents who, while no longer on the payroll, remained loyal to Hoover.  This may shed light on the true role of ex-FBI agents like Guy Bannister, William Harvey, Robert Maheu, Jim Garrison, and Secret Service Chief James Rowley.  The true nature of FBI links to Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby have never been revealed, but there certainly were ties between the FBI and both men, and by controlling the investigation, Hoover was in a position to obscure the trail of the assassins.

Over the years there have been HUNDREDS of articles filled with speculation that the MOB, MAFIA and CIA were involved in the murder of President John F. Kennedy.  COUP D”ETAT is a conspiracy theory and the title says it all – READ on….

THE MOB

In the last months of the Eisenhower Administration, secret meetings mediated by ex FBI agent and Howard Hughes aide Robert Maheu were held between CIA agents and organized crime figures for the purpose of plotting to kill Fidel Castro.  By 1960, the Cuban leader had nationalized U.S. interest, closed casinos, shut down drug labs and deported most of the mobsters.  The gangster with the most to gain from the elimination of Castro was Santo Trafficante Jr., former Mafia boss of Havana who with his partner, casino developer and financial wizard, Meyer Lansky, had inherited Lucky Luciano‘s heroin operations.  Trafficante financed terrorist raids against Cuba run by CIA agent Frank Sturgis‘ Miami-based International Anti-Communist Brigade.  In 1962, Trafficante told Cuban exile and FBI informant Jose Aleman that “Kennedy is in trouble and he will get what is coming to him…Kennedy is not going to make it to the election.  He’s going to be hit.”  West Coast mobster Johnny Rosselli, another CIA-Mafia plotter, later alleged that Castro was warned of plans to kill him by a double-agent, possibly Trafficante, and that Castro, assuming the plots to be official US policy had killed Kennedy in retaliation.

The Kennedy brothers did not know about the CIA-Mafia plots until 1962, when Robert Kennedy found the CIA interfering in Justice Department prosecution of first Mafia leader contacted by Maheu, Chicago boss Sam Giancana.  Participation in CIA-Mafia plots wasn’t Giancana’s only protection.  His girlfriend, Judith Campbell and President Kennedy had been lovers for two years.  In 1963, the Justice Department ordered the FBI to curtail surveillance of Giancana.
