The Assassination of JFK and the High Cabal

If you want to hear one of the very best analyses of the JFK assassination, you must listen to the following interview with Col. L. Fletcher Prouty, author of two groundbreaking books, The Secret Team (1973) and JFK:  The CIA, Vietnam, and the Plot to Assassinate John F. Kennedy (1992).  This comprehensive interview, entitled "A Very Special Operation:  The Assassination of JFK and the High Cabal," was conducted by David Ratcliffe in Prouty's home way back on May 8, 1989.  

Prouty, a colonel in the United States Air Force, served as Chief of Special Operations for the Joint Chiefs of Staff during JFK's presidency, so he had considerable insider knowledge regarding the behind-the-scenes machinations that led to the coup d'├ętat in Dealey Plaza on 11-22-63.  He was also the main inspiration for the fictional informant known as Mr. X, portrayed by Donald Sutherland, in Oliver Stone's film JFK (1991). 

Roy Tuckman, host of the late night Los Angeles radio show Something's Happening (90.7 FM), has made an annual tradition of broadcasting the interview every November for at least twenty years now.  This latest broadcast, from last Wednesday night/Thursday morning, is currently archived at <http://archive.kpfk.org/>.  You can hear the entirety of "The Assassination of JFK and the High Cabal" by clicking HERE.  Scroll down to Something's Happening--A (Thursday, November 21, 2013 12:00 am) and click the "Play" button on the right hand side of the screen.  The Col. Prouty interview begins at approximately 35:00.
