It will come as no surprise to students of the Kennedy assassination that the C.I.A. has been running an illegal assassination programme outside the U.S. during the Bush presidency. (Also quite possibly inside the U.S. if Seymour Hersh’s first words on the subject are correct.)
What is not reported is that these assassination plans involving the C.I.A. and the military have been on going for decades and have constantly been withheld from Congress. The 1970’s revelations about assassination attempts on Fidel Castro are proof enough of that, yet these revelations about Cheney and the C.I.A. seem to be shocking to most establishment journalists.
Historical analysis and honesty is lacking from these new developments. It seems that Diane Feinstein is now looking for a formal investigation in these matters. It is incumbent upon those of us who are informed on C.I.A. assassination programmes to encourage that investigation to delve more deeply into the very nature of the C.I.A.’s operations stretching back to the 1950’s.
