This is a phenomenal, must see interview by the late John Judge with the late Colonel L. Fletcher Prouty. Prouty served as Chief of Special Operations for the Joint Chiefs of Staff under President John F. Kennedy. He spent 9 of his 23 year military career in the Pentagon (1955-1964): 2 years with the Secretary of Defense, 2 years with the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and 5 years with Headquarters, U.S. Air Force. In 1955 he was appointed the first “Focal Point” officer between the CIA and the Air Force for Clandestine Operations per National Security Council Directive 5412. He was Briefing Officer for the Secretary of Defense (1960-1961), and for the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. At times he would be called to meet with CIA director Allen Dulles and Secretary of State John Foster Dulles at their homes on highly classified business. He was assigned to attend MKULTRA meetings.
In this capacity Colonel Prouty would be at the nerve center of the Military-Industrial Complex at a time unequaled in American History. He has written on these subjects, about the JFK assassination, the Cold War period, and Vietnamese warfare, and the existence of a “Secret Team”. He backs up his work with seldom seen or mentioned official documents – some never before released. In Oliver Stone’s highly acclaimed film, JFK, the mysterious character ‘X’ portrayed by Donald Sutherland was in fact Colonel L. Fletcher Prouty, who assisted director Stone in the production and scripting of this historical epic. Prouty had relayed the shocking information detailed in the movie to the actual New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison (played by Kevin Cosner) in a series of communiques. Fletcher Prouty was the author of two excellent books, The Secret Team: The CIA and Its Allies in Control of the United States and the World, and JFK: The CIA, Vietnam, and the Plot to Assassinate John F.
