FTR #54 Interview with Dick Russell

Lis­ten now: Side 1 [1] | Side 2 [2]

In 1992, author Dick Rus­sell pub­lished one of the longest, most com­pre­hen­sive and most insight­ful books on the JFK assas­si­na­tion. This book, The Man Who Knew Too Much (Car­roll & Graf, copy­right 1992), focus­es on Richard Case Nag­ell, a U.S. intel­li­gence agent who worked for a num­ber of Amer­i­can espi­onage agen­cies. Nag­ell may very well have worked for the KGB and CIA as a dou­ble, triple or quadru­ple agent. The first part of the inter­view high­lights Nag­el­l’s involve­ment with the Kennedy case and cen­ters on many of the points dis­cussed in Update on the JFK Assas­si­na­tion (see above). In the inter­view, Rus­sell also dis­cuss­es the his­to­ry of his involve­ment with Nag­el­l’s sto­ry and sheds more light on the cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing Nag­el­l’s death. The broad­cast explores: the prob­a­ble role in the assas­si­na­tion of for­mer staff offi­cers who had served under Gen­er­al Dou­glas MacArthur (notably Gen­er­al Charles Willough­by, MacArthur’s Ger­man-born for­mer intel­li­gence chief); a num­ber of over­lap­ping and inter­lock­ing fas­cist orga­ni­za­tions which fig­ure in the inves­ti­ga­tion; the pos­si­ble use of mind con­trol on Lee Har­vey Oswald and a num­ber of warn­ings of JFK’s impend­ing mur­der that pre­ced­ed the killing.
