Eugene B. Dinkin is a key to JFK’s assassination
Unfortunately, there are no pictures of Eugene Dinkin, who was an unfortunate victim of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. At left is a photo of William K. Harvey, the mad dog alcoholic assassin who became the CIA’s Knight in Shining Armor. He was told to assassinate Castro, but the plan soon diverted to JFK.
Dinkin was an army code operator stationed in Mertz, France, when he intercepted a message between a CIA-operative (probably Harvey) who had contacted French mafia in Marseilles to recruit their top assassin (who had the CIA code name QJ/WIN ) for a plot against President Kennedy. Apparently this plot already had the support of some Pentagon brass and a right-wing group in Texas (Murchinson and the Hunt brothers, no doubt). Apparently, some top assassins from a number of secret societies were being recruited. Dinkin made the mistake of telling one of his superiors about this message, as well as his plans to alert the world in order to stop this attempt to kill the President.
Pretty soon, word came down that Dinkin was about to be declared mentally ill, so he went AWOL and escaped into Switzerland, where he attempted to alert the press at a United Nations function. He also sent a letter to Robert Kennedy outlining the plot. Keep in mind, this all happened just days before the assassination, and Dinkin was already telling people the exact date and place the assassination was due to happen.
Of course, Dinkin wasn’t the only insider to blow a whistle before the event. Richard Case Nagell also sent a letter to J. Edgar Hoover outlining the plot. But neither Dinkin’s letter to RFK nor Nagell’s to Hoover have ever been found, and both were likely destroyed. Meanwhile, both Dinkin and Nagell were soon subjected to similar tortures.
Dinkin was soon removed to Walter Reed Army Hospital and worked on for weeks with drugs and electroshock therapy, and by the time he got out, his story has changed considerably. Instead of intercepting a coded message, now he’d predicted the assassination by reading coded messages in the Stars and Stripes? Dick Russell wrote the book on Nagell (The Man Who Knew Too Much) and also happened to get one of the few interviews with Dinkin and he came away with the strong feeling Dinkin had been worked over pretty heavily. Meanwhile, I saw online that his son is trying to raise funds for the definitive book on Dinkin.
In the 1960s, electroshock therapy was being used everywhere, not just by MKULTRA and other brainwashing programs, but also on teenagers who didn’t seem to be fitting in. It was standard treatment for homosexuality, for example. There was no medical science behind electroshock and Ken Kesey was the first to expose the treatment for what it sometimes was: torture. Getting frequent electroshock was sometimes close to a lobotomy and used to subdue patients who weren’t falling into line. It sometimes left victims mentally wrecked, with shattered personalities, which was useful if you were trying to alter that personality, as in what might have happened to Dinkin.
