FBI: “OK, John Lennon Wasn’t Really a Communist or a Terrorist”

Twenty-six years after John Lennon’s murder, the FBI has finally grasped what most Americans already knew: John Lennon was not a member of the Communist Party, he wasn’t conspiring with “foreign agents” and he did not seek the violent overthrow of the United States government. Can we move on now?

Historian Jon Wiener started writing a book about John Lennon in 1981, just a few months after Lennon’s murder. His book was to include information about the relentless surveillance and harassment Lennon was subjected to during the 1970s. The FBI refused to release this information on the grounds of “National Security.” (Gee, where have we heard that before?)

Wiener’s 25-year battle with the FBI is finally over. They’ve been ordered by a federal judge to release their final surveillance reports on John Lennon. The FBI had argued against releasing this information because “an unnamed foreign government secretly provided the information, and releasing the documents could lead to diplomatic, political or economic retaliation against the United States.”

Wiener responded to this psycho FBI claim with “I doubt that Tony Blair’s government will launch a military strike on the U.S. in retaliation for the release of these documents. Today, we can see that the national security claims that the FBI has been making for 25 years were absurd from the beginning.”

The most shocking information from the FBI’s surveillance was....... ::drumroll:: be sure you're sitting down when you read this — two prominent British leftists wanted John Lennon to provide funding for “a left-wing bookshop and reading room in London,” but Lennon didn’t give them any money.

Richard Nixon’s administration hounded and persecuted John Lennon mercilessly for the “crime” of opposing the Vietnam war.

“a left-wing bookshop and reading room in London,”

Jenn: Yup, he was pretty ruthless. God knows what he would've done if they weren't giving him the evil eye.

"You say you want a revolution..." was probably enough to make him a terrorist in Nixon's convoluted mind. "And no religion too" probably also didn't endear him to a lot of people.

Change can be an awfully tough thing for some people to handle, particularly when those people hold positions of power... I think the powers that were (at that time, may have viewed Lennon as a troublemaker, who could get people excited about change. I think any time our government views an individual outside government as being too powerful, they will be onto that person. Sigh...

Snave: Yup, he really rubbed some powerful people the wrong way. For someone who just wrote and sang songs, he sure managed to push some buttons. And poetically, he’ll be remembered for a long time after the government bureaucrats and FBI agents who harassed him are just a footnote.

Erik: That was one of my favorite songs of his. Now I've got that tune running through my head.

John Lennon's murder was discussed on my Internet radio program which aired Sunday, January 14, 2007. (http://www.jfkmontreal.com/AstuciaReport/ar_page.htm) I interviewed scientist Leuren Moret to corroborate some of my research about Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab and Edward Teller, the man whom I believe ordered Lennon's murder. Lennon's accused killer, Mark David Chapman, was most likely framed for the murder. Mind control was used to convince him that he was the killer. A professional assassin, named Jose Joaquin Sanjenis Perdomo, was probably placed as a security guard (or doorman) at the Dakota, Lennon’s home, an upscale condominium complex in Manhattan. Perdomo had the following background: (a) often used the alias, Sanjenis, or Sam Jenis; (b) had been on the CIA’s payroll for ten years; (c) was a professional assassin; (d) founded a Cuban-based assassination squad called Operation 40; (e) was a commander in Brigade 2506 during the Bay of Pigs Invasion in 1961, a failed CIA operation to overthrow Fidel Castro; (f) worked closely with convicted Watergate burglar Frank Sturgis (deceased) during his about ten years on the CIA's payroll. An assassin posing as a security guard could have easily been supplied to Brown, Harris and Stevens (the company that manages the Dakota) by one of the large security firms, like WACKENHUT, for example, known for hiring former FBI and CIA agents, not to mention retired military personnel. (Note: Wackenhut is the security contractor at most nuclear weapons labs and facilities in the USA. Leuren Moret claims Wackenhut murdered anti-nuclear activist, Karen Silkwood.) Mounting evidence indicates that Perdomo (or one of his aides) walked right behind John Lennon as he got out of his limousine on the night of Dec. 8, 1980, and shot him point blank through the heart two times (He was shot close to the heart, but not directly in the heart.). As Lennon ran away, Perdomo (or one of his aides) shot him two more times in the left shoulder, but death was caused by the two shots in the heart area. -- Salvador Astucia
