“Like Angleton, Dulles preferred collaborating with fascists to enabling Communists.”
Jefferson Morley, The Ghost: The Secret Life of CIA Spymaster James Jesus Angleton

“subscribing to a JFK assassination conspiracy theory amounts to a conviction that, in a moment of extreme crisis, the American political system failed. The people most invested in the capital’s way of life — the political and media classes — are prone to reject the notion out of hand.”
Jefferson Morley, CIA & JFK: The Secret Assassination Files

“Hoover was able to expand the list of COINTELPRO targets in the years to come to include such enemies of the people as civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr., the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the Nation of Islam, the Black Panthers, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee,”
Jefferson Morley, The Ghost: The Secret Life of CIA Spymaster James Jesus Angleton
