To the editor:

I am a private investigator. I have been investigating the CIA for the past 20 years. I have uncovered the fact the CIA was behind the murder of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963. On the anniversary of President Kennedy's death, a reporter asked former Minnesota Governor, Jesse Venture, in St. Paul, "Who killed President Kennedy?" Jesse looked the reporter in the eye, looked into the TV camera and answered truthfully "The CIA did." There's overwhelming evidence of a government conspiracy and cover-up. For a complete detailed account of the tragic murder of President Kennedy, read the book "They Killed Our President" by Jesse Ventura.

I am also writing a book entitled "My Private War with the CIA - The Lies, The Harassment, and The Threats." In addition to President Kennedy, the CIA was behind the murder of Attorney General Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Jr., Green Beret Col. James "Nick" Rowe, Vince Foster and thousands of other American citizens. The CIA has a lot of blood on their hands.

The CIA has also smuggled hundreds of millions of tons, now approaching a billion tons, of illegal drugs into the U.S. in the last 55 years.

The heroin comes from S.E. Asia, Afghanistan and Mexico. Col. James Rowe was security advisor the the Philippines. In his position he learned of massive amounts of heroin being smuggled into the U.S. from Burma, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia by the CIA. He was about to release a lot of names. On April 21, 1989, five CIA agents ambushed Col. Rowe on his way to work in Manila. They killed him and his driver with machine gunfire, ending the heroin investigation.

There are many employed people in Alexandria that also work for the CIA.
