Pacepa talks on how in the years after World War II, the Eastern Bloc eliminated opponents in Eastern Europe by using the intelligence services to fabricate evidence of Nazi collaboration against political targets. This would neutralise them, and open the way for more pliable, leftist figures to take their jobs.Pacepa then talks about Lee Harvey Oswald was a high-ranking spy, whose information about the U2 spy plane was instrumental in the Soviets learning how to shoot them down. Having worked as a radar operator in U2 bases, he was well placed. Pacepa then mentions how Oswald killed Kennedy; whilst Pacepa has no evidence Oswald killed Kennedy on the orders of the Eastern bloc, he does mention it was discussed. There was also some unusual stage managed denials by Eastern bloc leaders, which Pacepa believes was misdirection.
The Eastern bloc intelligence agencies were also blamed by Pacepa of creating the myth that the CIA killed Kennedy, a ludicrous claim that formed the basis of Oliver Stone's film JFK. In reality, Oswald was a cool, level headed operative, and his image as a weird loner was created by the Eastern bloc as a means of camouflaging his seniority in their movement. By creating the myth Oswald was a lone wolf, they could safely wash their hands of an asset whilst pinning the blame on their rival intelligence agency.
Finally, Pacepa talks about terrorism. He mentions how the KGB sponsored and trained terrorists all over the world, expecially those who attacked key US allies (terrorists like the Baader-Meinhof in West Germany, the Brigada Rossi in Italy and Palestinian anti-Israel groups). He argues this was done to weaken US allies and trigger political change that would be beneficial to the KGB line.
This book is an absolute must.
It fills in the gaps and answers many questions, pulling previous inexplicable events together to unmask the orchestrating of evil through lies, deceit and Disinformation from the very top.
