Deep Cover / Shallow Graves: Stories and Flashbacks

Why was a CIA  contract operative of the fifties in Dallas, Texas, in the sixties, the day JFK was assassinated?


Another groundhog day (Eyewitness to history).

Last November 22st, 2020, someone, again, asked me what I thought about the assassination of JFK. My standard answer after all these years has always been. “I try not to think about that day.”. But that is not true.

Each year when November 22 comes around, the date the President of the United States, John F Kennedy, was assassinated, I remember that day like a bad dream, a nightmare that will not go away.

Last November, before sunrise, the radio woke me up. It was November 20, 2020, a few days before the anniversary of that assassination.

“Yes. It’s that time of year again”, I said to myself. “It’s getting closer. That awful day is almost here again.”

For me, it would be a memory, a memory playing like a bad movie over and over in my brain. That cold November day when JFK was assassinated still lingers within my conscious mind. Like a broken record – each year, over and over, louder and louder, it plays. I want to run and hide. But there is nowhere to run- no place to hide. No way to escape that awful memory. That awful movie. That dreadful day.

”For me, things drastically changed on November 22, 1963. I was suddenly and without warning thrust into a sinister and wicked world. An unfamiliar world. An evil world of deception-a world of mistrust and deadly secrets.

The average eight to five hard-working American citizens could never begin to comprehend the existence of that crazy, sinister, and evil world—a world without boundaries.

That cold windy November day at Dealey Plaza, in Dallas, Texas, changed my life forever. For the rest of my days, that day in Dallas will forever haunt me.

Why was I there?  Why did I have to see that man die?”
