Editorial Reviews

This video memoir of CIA contract agent and underworld figure Chauncey Marvin Holt chronicles his career in the twilight world of bootlegging, bookmaking, gunrunning, money laundering, espionage, and assassinations. Made one week prior to Holt's death, this recording provides his account of the evidence of a renegade covert network that has exerted an untold influence over U.S. policy, including the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy. He details the preparations for a coup d'état on November 22, 1963, reveals why Holt and a team of CIA operatives were in Dealey Plaza that day, and explains the presence of the mysterious "three tramps" picked up behind the grassy knoll after JFK's assassination.

Chauncey Holt is one of the most credible witnesses in the entire landscape of the JFK assassination. He has been identified -with professional certainty- by Lois Gibson, one of the foremost forensic experts in the world, as being one of the "Three Tramps" photographed several times in Dealey Plaza shortly after the shooting. He came forward not for himself, but for the future. As he told his daughter Karyn shortly before his death: "This is not for me. This is not for you. This is for the American public and my little granddaughter out there."(Holt Harcourt, in: Dankbaar; 2006) Every conscientious citizen owes it to themselves, to our true history, and to our future, to hear this amazing man recount the facts that he witnessed firsthand. To understand our real history, men and women as brave as Chauncey Holt are indispensable and we should bless each one for having the courage to come forward.

That this video is not available is shameful. This may be the most convincing video ever seen of a conspiracy in the JFK assassination. That no TV network has ever had the guts to broadcast it tells us a lot. Instead they give us crap like the announced Tom Hanks production, whose purpose will be to further the myth that Oswald acted alone. Nothing could be further from the truth, of course.

Chauncey Holt, one of the famous "three tramps," played a small part in the plot, but the information he has is entirely believable and incredibly enlightening. He doesn't offer much that has not heretofore shown up in speculation, but hearing the story directly from him is amazing. His role consisted of supplying about a dozen counterfeit Secret Service badges and two weapons to people in Dealey Plaza. He did not witness the attack itself, but he did stroll through Dealey Plaza for a while and reels off the names of about five men who were known to him as world class assassins, as well as many others he knew to be involved in clandestine work for the CIA. He says that Dealey Plaza appeared to be a Soldiers of Fortune convention. I think he says there were MORE of those types than you would find at such a convention.

Listening to an 80-year-old man talk for two hours is not always easy to take. I found myself riveted.

Expendable Elite: One Soldier's Journey into Covert WarfareIn the spring of 1964 I was taught assassination, terror and sabotage techniques by CIA & Green Beret instructors at the Special Warfare School at Fort Bragg, NC. As a Captain I learned from those men that JFK was killed with four Mafia shooters and 2 spotters working for the CIA. One was on the grassy knoll (James Files) and another US Mafia was on the rooftop of the building adjacent to the Book Depository. The other 2 Corsican Mafia shooters w/spotters were on the two routes leading to the hospital to be used IF it appeared JFK would make it. Chaunchey Holt's testimony is true to what I know. I was an SF officer available to the CIA for assassinations.

I have this DVD and suggest that if you have an interest in the assassination of JFK then its a worthwhile view to see this one. We have all been indoctrinated by the Medias constant repeating of the Warren Commission account of events and frankly its important to see what else is out there. Chauncoy Marvin Holts story is a real and important historical one. The DVD is well produced and flows well with a great deal of information you may never have seen before. I run my DVD at regular intervals to keep me motivated and remind me of the terrible events in Dealey Plaza in 1963.

There are several good reasons why Holt is the old tramp 1.He walked splay footed, like a duck due to his being a tightrope walker previously & that is shown in one of the tramp photos from head to foot. 2.The tramp picture in NEWSWEEKfrom dec. 91 with an article about Holt is a perfect match for the accompanying photo of Holt wearing a cowboy hat as seen on the Dvd-eyes, chin,mouth, ears all match. 3.What kind of nonsense are the arrest records released in'92 just a few months after Holt's revelations caused a stir? They have no fngerprints, nor photo's,how would you know who is in custody? 4. Several people that knew Holt are convinced he is the old tramp from relatives and acquaintances. 5. His volunteering to be photographed and measured in person by forensic artist Lois Gibson, wherein an imposter would likely be exposed. 6.No forenic artist has ever said the official Tramps-Doyle, Gedney and Abrams are the Tramps in the pictures taken 11-22-63. Ths DVD is professionally done just under 2 hours and features much archival and still pictures never seen before.
