From yesterday's Blog:
"On June 26, 1963, U.S. President John F. Kennedy was in West Berlin where he made his "Ich bin ein Berliner" speech. He then took off to arrive in Dublin, Ireland, and after a short visit JFK took off over the Irish Sea for London, England where he met U.K. Prime Minister Harold Macmillan who took him on June 29, 1963 down to his home in West Sussex for an informal visit."
What JFK was really up to in West Sussex on June 29, 1963, we don't really know, but we do know that it had something to do with a rift in trust between the sharing of nuclear secrets, and a generational reassessment by a young American of an old Englishman. Kennedy was a devious player on the world stage in that he pretended to be what he was not, you see. His nepotistic brother Robert was also playing that same game with the American public via the American press. Both Kennedy brothers pretended to be peace loving guys whose word could be trusted, but in fact both Kennedy brothers were as devious in their own way as the secretive administrators who hid behind the British Crown.
A few months later around Noon on November 22, 1963, JFK was visiting Dallas, Texas in an open top limousine. Just after the clocks that were visible on its city streets reflected a change from half past the hour, JFK lost part of his head and he died, but today, in 2022, we still don't know why. Some suggest it was because of his brother Robert who worked in a subservient position to John, because to kill Bobby was not to kill the secret operation that Bobby was managing at a CIA base in South Miami, Florida.
John, who pretended not to be involved in a secret CIA operation, was in a position to appoint someone else in the event of Bobby's death. But if JFK died, then there was a good chance that the secret operational base in South Miami would also die. But who knew about that base and what it was doing? On November 22, 1963, just after 12:30 PM, JFK was dead, and although the secret CIA operatives in South Miami did not know it, their jobs were about to evaporate under a new President who had far grander ideas of aggression than merely terrorising Fidel Castro's island nation of Cuba.
The calendar moved on into December 1963 and suddenly the 'Olga Patricia' had become a surplus vessel, and so had the Mi Amigo. But while the 'Olga Patricia' was wrapped around the affairs of Manuel Airtime Buesa who no one really knew, the 'Mi Amigo' trailed back to the City of Assassination known as Dallas, Texas where three men - Murchison Jr; Thompson and McLendon were faced with a problem: quickly disposing of the 'Mi Amigo'. That ship had a history that led to the CIA because of its ties to Sweden.
Meanwhile, back in June 1963, a young Irishman had been dispatched on a secret mission to try to lease the 'Mi Amigo', but he did not represent the amount of cash necessary to buy it. Now, in December 1963 it was necessary to get rid of the 'Mi Amigo' at any cost in order to transfer it into other hands where press investigators could be led in other directions, and away from the trio in Dallas, Texas.
Ronan O'Rahilly was from Ireland, and so was Charles Orr Stanley who wanted the 'Mi Amigo' as part of his grand plan. So in the closing hours of 1963 the 'Mi Amigo' set off on a trans-Atlantic journey in order to satisfy another secret plan that also involved the procurement of another ship called 'Fredericia', but those plans did not involve the Central Intelligence Agency.
