Links to Assassination & Espionage Sites
Here at the Assassination Web are very selective concerning
the process of determining which sites we are willing to link with.
While we don't want to criticize other sites who present every site they
can find on the topic in a long list, we do want to try to point our
visitors to some of the most worthwhile locations.
We want to state that we do not necessarily agree with everything
contained on each and every site that we recommend, but it does mean
that we feel that they do contain serious, worthwhile material that
provides interesting information on assassinations and related topics
such as espionage. We even provide links to sites that defend the lone
assaassin theory despite the fact that few people in the world feel
it is a likely solution. As a service to our visitors, we supply a
short description/opinion of the content of each site.
We will be adding more as time goes by. If you are not here for
the first time, the most recent additions are located in the top
half of the list of sites.
JFK Library and Museum
The JFK Library has numerous useful resources. They are
one of ten Presidential libraries overseen by the National Archives and
Records Administration. They have online search capabilities and lots
of interesting collections. Some of these contain assassination-related
materials. They have digitized, downloadable versions of National
Security Action Memoranda and also digitized Executive Orders issued
during the Kennedy administration.
This is an un-moderated news group where the content can range
from interesting dialogue and debate to angry, flame-ridden hostility.
You can sort through and find topics and discussions of interest to your
specific interests in the JFK assassination.
American Scientists - Intelligence Resource Program
Who would think that a site created by an organization of
scientists would have some of the most interesting collections of
cold war espionage information on the net. It's there. You will see
info on government reports on secrecy and other espionage issues
and yes, even material relating to the Kennedy assassination. There
is information contained on this site concerning the Assassination
Records and Review Board. There are also items relating to the process
of filing freedom of information requests.
The Intelligence Community
This is a site provided on the CIA site that supplies information
about other members of the US Intelligence apparatus. CIA is but one
of an alphabet soup of agencies and bureaus that are in the business
of spying. 50% of the American public believe that the CIA was involved in
some way in the JFK assassination, and therefore considers that the
assassination may have been some kind cold war era covert action. Many
of the most interesting documents about the assassination that are being
released today originate from the CIA, the FBI, the Treasury (Secret
Service) and the military spy agencies.
This is the biggest and most sophisticated of the few Web sites
that seek to defend the lone assassin theory. You will find a searchable
database of the contents on the site. There is, in our opinion, a rather
biased, freqently asked questions section where you can familiarize
yourself with all the usual anti-conspiracy arguments. Here's your chance
to get inside the mind of a lone nut theorist and see the other side's
point of view. The site's creator, John McAdams, is a frequent nemisis of
conspiracy theorists on the JFK newsgroups.
For anyone that has used or will be using the JFK newsgroups,
this is a valuable service. You can search a database that contains
a history of postings on the groups. You can search a name, a topic or
an e-mail address that may be contained in past posts and get a list of
matches to read. If you want to see the history of an issue or a complete
list of items posted by a particular participant in a group, it's usually
there to be found.
Luther King, Jr. Directory & the Martin Luther King, Jr. Papers
Project at Stanford
This is a site that contains little relating to the actual
assassination of King but presents much interesting material on his
life. There is biographical information, a bibliography of books about
him and a collection of articles and documents by and about Dr. King.
The James Earl Ray
(Editor's note - This site is leaving the content as it was
just before the death of James Earl Ray on 4/23/98 as a tribute to him.
I am leaving my original textual description of the site as it was also.)
This site describes itself as "the only official and authorized
James Earl Ray Web Site." You will find several news articles on the
recent developments in the case. You can see medical updates on the
seriously ill alleged assassin of MLK. There is even a fund that you can
contribute to in order to raise money for a liver transplant for Ray. He
needs this medical procedure in order to survive beyond the near future.
There are legal proceedings currently under way that are aimed at
obtaining an actual trial for Ray before he dies. You will also see
writings by both Ray's lawyer (William Pepper) and Ray's brother Jerry
Ray arguing the need for a trial.
The Col. L. Fletcher
Prouty Reference Site
Col. L. Fletcher Prouty served as the chief of special operations
for the Joint Chiefs of Staff during the Kennedy administration. He
was in charge of providing military support for the clandestine
operations of the CIA during this time. While some of his views are
controversial, he has to be considered an important source of information
on covert actions and spy activities during the 50s and 60s. His book
The Secret Team and his later work, JFK, CIA, Vietnam and the Plot to
Assassinate John F. Kennedy were interesting and are worth reading. This
site offers recent writings and older articles by Col. Prouty.
This site offers many interesting articles on the JFK assassination
in their on-line magazine, Fair Play. There is a large selection of links to
assassination-related information at this site. They also provide
an extensive archive of back issues of Fair Play magazine.
and Records Administration (NARA)
Congress recently enacted the JFK Records Act in response to the
public's demand to unseal the files on the JFK assassination. The Archives
is where millions of pages of recently released documents are housed in a
special JFK Assassination Records Collection. You can search their online
database for documents on any aspect of the murder of JFK.
This website for the magazine co-edited by Walt Brown and Vince
Palamara features downloadable sample articles from each issue. JFK/DPQ has
recently moved to a new server and is expanding their web site. They also
give subscription information for their journal so you can receive all of
the articles in a magazine format through the mail, in addition to the
examples provided on the site.
The Posner File
Download chapters from Gerald Posner's lone assassin book
Case Closed and other subjects such as Nazis, drug gangs and
Ross Perot. Also you can obtain information on Posner's media appearances.
Gerald will be coming out with a book soon on Motown, believe it or not..

National Security States of America

Col. L. Fletcher Prouty, Howard Roffman, Richard E. Sprague and many
articles relating to assassinations, conspiracies and espionage.
This gopher site, run by Deanie Richards, features numerous JFK
articles, photographs, and other items of interest, including the
