Thom Hartmann and Lamar Waldron, authors of the recently published Legacy of Secrecy which rather conclusively establishes that three mob bosses -- Carlos Marcello, Santo Trafficante, and Johnny Rosselli -- were responsible for the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, are rallying behind Abraham Bolden in The Huffington Post:
A great miscarriage of justice has kept most Americas from learning about a Civil Rights pioneer who worked with President John F. Kennedy. But there is finally a way for citizens to not only right that wrong, but bring closure to the most tragic chapter of American presidential history. After an outstanding career in law enforcement, Abraham Bolden was appointed by JFK to be the first African American presidential Secret Service agent, where he served with distinction. He was part of the Secret Service effort that prevented JFK's assassination in Chicago, three weeks before Dallas. But Bolden was framed by the Mafia and arrested on the very day he went to Washington to tell the Warren Commission staff about the Chicago attempt against JFK. * * * It's now clear that an associate of Rosselli and Trafficante -- Chicago mobster Richard Cain, who was a high official in the Cook Country/Chicago Sheriff's department -- was in the perfect position to frame Bolden.
Abraham Bolden, who spent six years in prison following his railroaded conviction on the bribery charges which were trumped up by the mob to discredit and silence him, has written The Echo From Dealey Plaza in the continued effort to clear his name. Officer Cain, a bagman who collected protection payments from vice purveyors and later became Sam Giancana's shoe shine boy, was whacked in 1973 with a couple of short-range shotgun blasts to the face.
