Obama's CIA connection:
I am on the track of Bechtel, Rockefeller, Bohemian, Bilderberger, Knight of Malta in the JFK Administration: John McCone - he was the CIA Director when JFK was assassinated http://www.lewrockwell.com/orig11/madsen1.1.1.htmlThe Story of Obama: All in the Company
by Wayne Madsen
Barack Obama's employment as an editor for CIA front Business International Corporation (BIC) after his graduation from Columbia University in 1983, came at a time when such small business and political risk consulting firms were mushrooming and their ranks growing with retired senior CIA personnel. The expansion of BIC and similar firms in the early 1980s also came at a time when major corporations were phasing out their internal risk departments and relying more on companies like BIC.
However, Obama's contacts with the CIA came earlier than his work for BIC. Obama's attendance at Occidental College in Los Angeles from 1979 to 1981 is significant considering the college's close ties with the CIA
. Occidental's President, Richard C. Gilman, who retired in 1988, was a habitué of Los Angeles's version of New York's Council on Foreign Relations, the Los Angeles World Affairs Council (WAC).
As a director of the WAC, Gilman rubbed shoulders with fellow WAC directors John McCone, a former CIA director
; Simon Ramo, chairman of top CIA contractor TRW, Inc.; and the wealthy oil magnate Armand Hammer, chairman of Occidental Petroleum, himself no stranger to intelligence-oriented intrigue.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bechtel
From 1933 to 1936, Bechtel helped build the 4.5 mile (7 km) long San Francisco – Oakland Bay Bridge. In 1937, Bechtel joined forces with John McCone's engineering company to form an engineering/construction firm called the Bechtel-McCone Company
On July 19, 1940, President Roosevelt signed the Two-Ocean Naval Expansion Act, which authorized the construction of two huge fleets in both the Atlantic and Pacific theaters. The U.S. Maritime Commission selected Bechtel to build a new shipyard for the Pacific fleet. Bechtel constructed the Marinship Bechtel Shipyards in Sausalito, California and produced hundreds of cargo ships and oil tankers for the Navy. John McCone's California Shipbuilding Company also gained many large and profitable shipbuilding contracts, starting in early 1941 and continuing through the end of World War II.
After the war, the W.A. Bechtel Company bought out John McCone's share in Bechtel-McCone and incorporated as Bechtel Corporation. John McCone went on to head the Atomic Energy Commission and later the Central Intelligence Agency
In 1946, the U.S. Congress authorized government research into nuclear power with the Atomic Energy Act of 1946. This act created the Atomic Energy Commission, later headed by Bechtel's former partner John McCone. Following President Eisenhower's famous Atoms for Peace speech in 1953, commercial research into nuclear power was authorized
John Alexander McCone (January 4, 1902 - February 14, 1991) was an American businessman and politician who served as Director of Central Intelligence during the height of the Cold War.
McCone was born in San Francisco, California. His father ran iron foundries across California, a business started in Nevada in 1860 by McCone's grandfather. He graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in 1922 with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, beginning his career in Los Angeles' Llewellyn Iron Works. He rose swiftly and in 1929, when several works merged to become the Consolidated Steel Corporation, he became executive vice president. He also founded Bechtel-McCone.
 A prominent industrialist, McCone also served for more than twenty years as a governmental advisor and official, including head positions at the AEC and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). He also worked for the ITT corporation. McCone's political affiliation was with the Republican Party
In 1958, he became chairman of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission.
According to journalist Seymour Hersh, in December 1960, while still Atomic Energy Commission chairman, McCone revealed CIA information about Israel's Dimona nuclear weapons plant to the New York Times. Hersh writes that President John F. Kennedy was "fixated" on the Israeli nuclear weapons program and appointed McCone CIA director in part because of his willingness to deal with this and other nuclear weapons issues
- and despite the fact that McCone was a Republican
...After the disaster of the Bay of Pigs Invasion, president John F. Kennedy reluctantly  forced the resignation of the CIA director Allen Dulles
and some of his staff. John McCone was the replacement and took office c. September 1961He was a member of the Knights of Malta

, unlike his father, did not like the tumult, roughness, and combat of the political and economic pit," writes Halberstam. "He was an excellent businessman yet nonetheless quick to delegate as much responsibility as he could in order to spare himself the pain of dealing in the fierce and often harsh world that his father passed on to him."Norman presided over the Committee of 25, a clique of power that was larger and more diverse than the M&M.
"The Committee of 25 was intended to function as a shadow government of the chief burghers," writes Mike Davis, "bringing their consensual opinion to bear upon the mayor and the council."
, a college friend of Norman Chandler's
and Committee of 25 member
, was appointed head of the CIA in 1961. Over the next three and a half years, he would oversee numerous covert operations in Vietnam, Laos, Cuba, Ecuador and Brazil.
Less than four months after he resigned, in 1965, the South L.A. ghetto of Watts erupted in what were then the worst riots in Los Angeles history. Governor Edmund G. "Pat” Brown appointed McCone to head a commission to figure out what went wrong.
The commission, which also included Asa Call and an O'Melveny & Myers lawyer named Warren Christopher (later the U.S. Secretary of State), "pointed out few of the social and economic problems in the ghetto," according to Gottlieb and Wolt, "and absolved Chief Parker, the city government, and the business establishment of any responsibility."
