boyhood friend of Mary Pinchot Meyer s middle son The author remembers her warmth as they both grieved for that boy when he was killed by a car and the coldness of his own father who, he later learns, had a small, but necessary role in the cover up of this former neighbor s assassination.I ve been waiting for this book for 20 years, or whenever it was that I learned of this death and its ramifications While it is a year old, I just saw it in our public library It apparently had no fanfare, made no best lists for 2012, nor found its way to any Goodreads lists Skyhorse is not a major publisher This says to me, after all this time, information on this dark episode must still be a target of suppression In the end, Janney alludes to over 100 mysterious deaths of journalists two specifically working on MPM and others, like Mary Pinchot Meyer herself, likely to have knowledge of what happened in Dallas.As presented by Peter Janney, the Meyer Assassination is the Rosetta Stone for Kennedy s Nowhere have I seen the motive so keenly drawn Nowhere have I seen such good portraits of the CIA leadership Janney shows how the CIA was operating independently and unaccountably Mary Pinchot Meyer s husband ran Operation Mockingbird which had 3000 propagandists whose job was to present the CIA point of view and plant it in media outlets as news The agency, de facto, set foreign policy by toppling governments around the globe When it did not like the direction JFK was taking the country, it had no qualms about a US regime change Janney has a episode that links Lyndon Johnson to foreknowledge of the JFK assassination, but I m not sold I see Johnson as a beneficiary of the assassination, but not part of it I agree that his Vietnam escalation was due listening to the wrong people, but not why he listened My take is that Johnson knew so little on foreign policy he deferred to those whom he considered experts Mary knew, through her ex husband, the inner workings of CIA and its key personnel She knew the Warren Commission Report was a cover up She had contacts, standing and nothing to lose but her life in pursuing the truth, which she had started to do She was dangerous to have around.There are a number of surprises, the first being the involvement of Ben Bradlee of the Washington Post and Watergate fame and the last being the final days of James Angleton Bradlee is particularly surprising because his paper broke the Watergate scandal I ve always felt the burglars were looking for evidence of CIA and their own personal involvement in the JFK assassination which they believed the Democratic Committee had in its possession.The portions on Bobby Kennedy suggestwork is needed on his assassination You can see how dangerous he would have been to the prime movers at the CIA The author was a bit wordy, but the work was thorough The last two chapters, on How it Went Down were page turners.This book should havemedia attention and should bewidely read This is an excellent work that reads like a fictional murder mystery What sets Mary s Mosaic apart from other books that analyze the JFK assassination is that the author is the son of a prominent CIA offical who was involved in the coverup of Mary Pinchot Meyer s murder The evidence that he presents linking the murder to her knowledge of the JFK assassination is most compelling Like Mark Lane, Peter Janney lays the responsibility for the JFK assassination clearly on the doorstep of the CIA This is an excellent work that reads like a fictional murder mystery What sets Mary s

of the CIA and he provides much damning evidence to support his conclusion Having read many of the other books about the JFK murder, I would rate this as one of the best of the bunch I had a hard time putting it down Astonishing but trueIf, like me, you were alive and aware on November 22, 1963, you ve never forgotten the day It was mid afternoon in New York, and I had just arrived for a graduate

ve never forgotten the day It was mid afternoon in New York, and I had just arrived for a graduate course in international relations at Columbia University, only to discover a small number of my classmates aimlessly milling around, most of them in tears, some hugging one another, as one informed me that President Kennedy had been shot The class had been canceled, and I wandered away with a classmate to learnfrom TV news at his nearby apartment He and I remained glued to that small, black and white screen the rest of the day and the following The unthinkable had happened, and it seemed that nothing would ever be the same.In the months that followed, as Lyndon Johnson claimed the Presidency for his own, the war in Vietnam quickly heated up, and the Warren Commission hastily assembled, eventually reporting that Lee Harvey Oswald had single handedly assassinated the President, as all the news reports had suggested However, almost since the day of Kennedy s murder, conspiracy theories began to swirl about, those from the Right finding connections with Fidel Castro and the KGB, those from the Left claiming the participation of the CIA, the Mafia, the Pentagon, Big Business, and sometimes Lyndon Johnson However, like many Americans, I paid little attention to all the speculation Leave it to the Commission, I thought They ll find out the truth For years afterward the books came out, spinning elaborate tales of skullduggery in high places I ignored them all.Now I know better The Warren Commission was a sham The CIA did it Probably not alone, but the CIA was at the center of the plot And if you doubt those statements, I suggest you read Mary s Mosaic, by Peter Janney It s not only a treasure house of shocking revelations about recent U.S history many of which have come to light only in recent years but a story far too strange for fiction.The central subject of this extraordinary book is the murder of Mary Pinchot Meyer in October 1964 Mary was the niece of Gifford Pinchot, a Teddy Roosevelt confidante, the first head of the U.S Forest Service, and a former two term Governor of Pennsylvania Previously a journalist, she was a practicing artist in middle age in the early 1960s and prominent in Washington social circles She was also so striking that practically everyone who spoke about her commented on her beauty.What the public knew at the time was merely that Washington D.C police had arrested a terrified young African American man whom two witnesses identified as standing over her body as it lay on the tow path by the Potomac Canal in Georgetown When the alleged killer finally went to trial in 1965, he was acquitted as the result of unusually skillful courtroom work by his pro bono attorney.Later in many cases, decades later it became clear that the man arrested for the killing had been elaborately framed Here are just some of the salient facts that prove Mary Pinchot Meyer was murdered by the CIA The first witness testified at the trial that the man standing over Mary s body was stocky, between 5 8 and 5 10 in height, and weighing approximately 185 pounds The accused stood barely 5 3 1 2 and weighed 130 In other words, he was a scrawny little guy There were many other holes in the police s case against the man, but it was this discrepancy that seemed to have won the day with the jury.Mary was murdered around 12 30, her body discovered soon afterward, and declared dead at 2 05 However, her identity wasn t known until after 6 00 pm, when her brother in law, Ben Bradlee yes, the managing editor of the Washington Post , went to the morgue to confirm it was she Meanwhile, Mary s ex husband, Cord Meyer, a senior officer at the CIA, received a call in New York at around 2 30 that Mary had been killed The caller was a fellow senior CIA official who also phoned the news around the same time to James Jesus Angleton, the CIA s head of counterintelligence In other words, top officials at the CIA learned that Mary was dead hours before anyone else, even the police, knew who she was.The night of Mary s murder, Bradlee and Angleton entered Mary s art studio and carried away her diary and a number of other personal papers, which Angleton kept.Why all the skullduggery surrounding the murder of a Washington socialite, you might ask Well, it transpired that a Mary had been sleeping with JFK for several years, and the two were in love with each other JFK was a sex addict and continued having sex with an untold number of other women, but Mary was special By 1963 he was planning to divorce Jackie on leaving the White House and marrying Mary His brother Bobby and his closest male friend, and Mary s closest friends, all were aware of these facts b Mary came from a family of suffragists and pacifists and was unalterably opposed to war She was also a free spirit who had sought out Timothy Leary at Harvard to experience LSD, which she introduced to the President Under Mary s influence and the influence of the drug, and in the wake of the nearly catastrophic Cuban Missile Crisis that came so close to incinerating the planet, JFK resolved to sidestep the Pentagon and the CIA and seek world peace in a serious way In fact, he was already engaged in secret negotiations with Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev about a test ban treaty and other confidence building measures that, they agreed in writing, would lead to an end to the Cold War He had also dispatched a personal envoy to Cuba who was meeting with Fidel Castro about similar measures on the day he was murdered And, weeks before his assassination, JFK issued an executive order to bring back 1,000 troops from Vietnam in 1963 and all the rest by 1965 All this has been documented c When President Kennedy was murdered, Mary was convinced that the CIA was involved She was close to many prominent CIA officials, including her ex husband and Jim Angleton, who had been the godfather of their three sons She had been making the rounds in Washington and elsewhere, asking questions about the assassination and making no secret of her suspicions She was determined to learn the truth and make it widely known d Mary had been a life long diarist who wrestled with her most intimate thoughts in writing Her diary, which has never publicly surfaced, was thought by all her friends as well as the CIA to contain revelations not just about JFK s turn toward peace but about his murder as well The few who had seen it confirmed those suspicions.It s difficult for anyone who didn t experience that time in our history to appreciate the high stakes in politics at the top in Washington, D.C then Early in Kennedy s Presidency, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, spearheaded by a notoriously bellicose Air Force general named Curtis LeMay, presented a plan to launch a pre emptive nuclear strike against the USSR in June 1963 Kennedy disgustedly rejected the plan out of hand and thereafter was deemed dangerous by the Chiefs and their allies in the CIA For its part, the CIA essentially ignored orders from the White House from that time on.Ever since 1953, when Allen Dulles was named Director of the CIA, the agency had been compiling an astonishing record of illegal behavior The agency had overthrown the governments of at least six nations, not just Iran and Guatemala which are so well known CIA agents and contractors had attempted to assassinate a number of world leaders in addition to Fidel Castro, and the agency had undertaken extensive surveillance of U.S citizens within the borders of the country All this, too, has been well documented.Following the disastrous Bay of Pigs invasion in 1961, President Kennedy was incandescent with fury at the CIA, and they with him Kennedy wanted to break the agency up into a thousand little pieces and scatter them about the government He fired Director Allen Dulles and replaced him with an inexperienced outsider, effectively leaving the agency under the control of counterintelligence chief Jim Angleton and his inner circle, a handful of other wealthy sons of Yale, Princeton, and other Ivy League colleges who held high ranking posts in the agency.Given this set of facts, is it any wonder that the CIA would kill the President After reading Mary s Mosaic, my mind is awash with a hundred other facts and factors, but I won t reveal anyAlthough the focus is on Mary Pinchot Meyer s murder, the book contains extensive information, much of it revealed only within the last 12 or 13 years, about JFK s assassination It makes the case convincingly.According to the book s website, author Peter Janney grew up in Washington, D.C during the Cold War era of the 1950s and 1960s His father Wistar Janney was a senior career CIA official The Janney family was intimately involved with many of Washington s social and political elite that included the family of Mary and Cord Meyer, as well as other high ranking CIA officials such as Richard Helms, Jim Angleton, Tracy Barnes, Desmond FitzGerald, and William Colby
