Author To Expose Top-Secret JFK CIA Plan On TV


Air America Host Thom Hartmann Exposes Top-Secret CIA Plan On TV

Thom Hartmann, Air America radio host and co-author of the new book "Ultimate Sacrifice," is featured in an explosive special produced by NBC which will run on the Discovery Channel on Thursday, May 11 at 9pm (Eastern, and again later that night at 1am). Check your local listings.

In "Conspiracy Files: JFK Assassination" Hartmann shows for the first time on TV declassified CIA documents about a top secret JFK plan to stage a coup against Fidel Castro that was set for December 1, 1963--just ten days after JFK was to return from his trip to Dallas. The CIA codenamed their part of the coup plan AMWORLD, and it was completely withheld from the Warren Commission and all later Congressional investigating committees.

One reasons for all the secrecy was because Mafia bosses from Chicago, Tampa, and Louisiana-East Texas managed to infiltrate the AMWORLD coup plan. The Mafia bosses were being prosecuted by Attorney General Robert Kennedy, and they used parts of AMWORLD in their attempts to assassinate JFK first in Chicago (three weeks before Dallas), in Tampa (four days before Dallas), and finally in Dallas. The Tampa attempt was also withheld from the Warren Commission and Congress, and is revealed on TV for the first time by Hartmann and Waldron.

A tragic case spotlighted in the special is that of Abraham Bolden, the first African-American presidential Secret Service agent. Bolden was arrested when he tried to tell the Warren Commission about the Chicago and Tampa attempts against JFK, and other Secret Service problems. But Hartmann reveals in the special that "we've gathered a fairly abundant collection of evidence that Bolden was framed" by a member of the Chicago mafia. "Here's one of the people going a great and noble job...and for this his life is destroyed."

Hartmann also reveals that more than a million CIA files about JFK's assassination are still being withheld from Congress and the American people, even though the 1992 JFK Act requires their disclosure.

“I believe this book is the closest we are going to get to the truth until 2017” when “the CIA and Kennedy papers are all finally released.”
