Novel ran an electronics firm in New Orleans which specialized in selling equipment used for bugging. s' His lawyer claimed he held a position identical to that of Hunt, an intermediary between the Cuban exiles and the CIA." After initially denying that he had had any part in the burglary, he stated that "It was one of the most patriotic burglaries in history," and that it was done under the direction of the CIA as part of the Bay of Pigs operation. Novel confessed he had been given a key to the bunker and that the people he had met there, Arcacha Smith and David Ferrie were also working for the CIA."
I resolved that as long as that was likely the case, I would "play" Lear along as far as possible, and noted to my friend later that evening that it was only a matter of time before Lear and I would part company once and for all, that I believed he was stringing me along for some reason, and that sooner or later we would inevitably "burn the bridges" between us. I decided that, until then, I would milk him for all that he cared to blab about. We both agreed that given the crap I had endured already on his behalf, I was more than justified in taking that approach. With the continuing reporting of details related to the Marcos trial and the missing gold, I thought that perhaps Lear might finally be more forthcoming about his activities with Warton than he had been earlier. Fortunately, I was not wrong.
At this point, he asked me if I wanted to hear his conversation with Novel. Their early- morning tete-a-tete, which has since been transcribed, was startling, to say the very least. Once again, I was completely amazed after all that had transpired that Lear would even consider letting me know he was in touch with Novel or that he had taped their conversation, much less that he would actually play it for me and then give me a copy. If it had been anybody else, or at any other stage of our association, I might have said, "No. Keep it to yourself," or begged off in some other way. But after all the bull# and the game-playing and the grief that his giving the JFK tape to Cooper had already caused, I figured that if Novel had anything new to add to the story of Kennedy's death, it would help to make up for all the other bull#. And I felt that if anyone was in a position to know after all these years, given his background, Gordon Novel was certainly a prime candidate. Whatever disgust I might have for many of his actions over the years, one has to give the man credit for simply staying alive through all the incredibly heavy situations he had moved through in his life.
I had already listened to Novel on an audiotape I had just acquired at that time of a radio program in the SF Bay area in 1983. Gordon had called the studio at about 3 a.m. after hearing his name come up on the program while he was driving up to San Jose. It was talk radio at its finest to hear him openly admit that he had been recruited by Lyndon Johnson himself to destroy the Garrison investigation from the inside, where he was serving as Garrison's chief of security at his request, then admit later that he had actually been hired by Charles Colson to de-gauss the Watergate tapes for Richard Nixon, and would have "succeeded in erasing them all if they had been willing to pay me more money." After listening to the self-anointed Kennedy "expert," Dave Emory, accuse John Judge of being a closet agent of Western Goals, a rabid right- wing outfit, shortly before in Los Angeles, it was actually quite amusing to hear him squirm on the earlier program once he realized Novel was actually the person he claimed to be. Emory repeatedly stammered out his assurance that "I'm not gunning for you, Mr. Novel," and bleated about his "healthy respect" for Novel's capabilities and his fervent hope that Novel wasn't inspired to be gunning for him.
-John, you really need a psychiatrist. Bob and I knew each other and
had established a friendship before you even knew who he was. I'm one
of the few people who doesn't kiss his ass and we have a mutual
respect. Considering Bob's public comments, do you think he respects
you? The bottom line is that since I destroyed serious ufology by
making the tragic error of introducing you to Bob, Bob could never stop
abruptly without having to have your head surgically removed from his
ass. I don't rewrite what happened at any point in time, ever. The
above statement by you simply reflects the truth about you. You've gone
around the world telling stories about you and Bob when in actuality
the stories were about Bob and I and you substituted your name for mine
to help gain some attention. Those events you cited are an exception
and let me tell you they are really impressive. Boy, that story about
the dye in the pool was really enchanting. The bottom line is that
you've spent years in ufology and deserve an E for effort. However,
you're not really involved in the Lazar story, but we'll continue to
let you tag along so you don't take yourself out sooner than someone
like you normally does.-
Did Bob shoot Gene and then Gordon buried the body in Lear's backyard, which was only later found to be an animatronic dummy Gene, while the actual Gene was at home watching the Scoob on Cartoon Network? Eating pudding?
And please, don't hesitate to post anything you feel about this subject, how ever uninformed it may be .

Pardon me with my question. Question being; why isn't or wasn't Lars Hanssons statement signed or has that part of the image been left out to protect him from the possibility of someone forging his signature? Having read both parts of his statement from two different sources, I would like to know if the statements are authentic and if they were presented as dated. Thankyou.
Hansson also has been a very active researcher in illegal
government covert operations, arms trade, Iran-Contra, etc., and
has just finished an explosive expose entitled "UFOs, ALIENS, and
`Ex'-intelligence Agents: Who's Fooling Whom?" The Inside Story of
John Lear, Bill Cooper, and The Greatest Coverup in Human History.
This is a 300 page AFFIDAVIT by Lars Hansson, and is available for
$25.00 plus 3.00 postage and handling. If you are interested you
