Join your host Rob Clark and his guest C.A.A. Savastano to discuss and inspect the claims of two prior guests from different sides of the Kennedy assassination case. They discuss the same problems that differently motivated inspections of the case offer, dissect some related myths, and offer why the sources of evidence we believe are important to forming reasonable conclusions.
J.V. Grombach and his group "The Pond" might be the least well known development in wartime US intelligence because of a commitment to pursuing his political enemies using the power of an unknown intelligence group. In total secrecy, he would attempt to destroy or purge official groups of those he found unacceptable and it would require other officials to stop his increasingly damaging attacks from within their own ranks.
Join your host Chuck Ochelli with author Carmine Savastano as they offer some insights with evidence into the design and history of America's first official attempt to centralize intelligence via the Office of Strategic Services.
Inspecting the foundations of the modern historical American intelligence system and its military origins reveals the influences that created the Office of Strategic Services from which all later intelligence groups would evolve. Additionally noted are some resulting power struggles between civilian and military departments about the policies and future path of American intelligence.

Nosenko's eventual defection and the drastic shift in his treatment would lead to years of solitary imprisonment...Read More
Often the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA, the Agency, the Company) is ascribed direct control over the Kennedy assassination by those who suspect them. Their tactics and even some among their fallen ranks were guilty of suppression of evidence, obstruction of justice, and deception at the very least. Yet they were not the leading investigative agency, but supported the "efforts" of J. Edgar Hoover and the Federal Bureau of Investigation...Read More
For decades, the United States government contended there was no Communist or domestic plot to assassinate President John F. Kennedy. However not all in government agreed, some would allow the repeated breach of law to conceal their involvement for the "implications". While some may enjoy reciting the findings of the President's "Warren" Commission, the following information is intentionally absent. Commission documents are definitely not the complete story...Read More
