9781449023041: Murder in the Vatican: The CIA and the Bolshevik Pontiff

IMPORTANT: 'Murder in the Vatican' was republished in a complete expanded edition in December 2013 under the title: 'The Vatican Murders: The Life and Death of John Paul I' also on Amazon.  

A monumental work of twentieth century capitalism as it was jointly embraced by the Vatican and the United States and those caught up in it. Top-shelf CIA-Vatican intrigue" T. Francis Elliott, London Times. _____ Driven by Paul VI's edicts 'Populorum Progressio' and 'Liberation Theology' there were two fronts on which the CIA was confronted by communism as a democratic society-Italy and Central America. If Italy fell to communism, all of Europe would surely follow. If Central America fell to communism, all of Latin America would surely follow. It was in these parts of the world communism was raising its head as the will of the people that was so dangerous to the United States and its capitalistic allies. Henry Kissinger sounded the alarm, "Domination by Moscow is not the issue. Communist control of Italy and Central America is the issue. It would have terrible consequences for the United States and it is the number one threat to its national security" On the afternoon of March 13, 1978, fifteen men sat around a table in a sidewalk café in a remote mountain village in northern Italy. In casual clothes, they went unnoticed, though one was the reigning Pontiff, and another Aldo Moro, and the others ranking cardinals of poverty stricken countries who comprised the leadership of the Marxist movement in the Church and the western world. They left at four o'clock. Aldo reserved the table "for this time next year" On March 13, 1979, Cardinals Benelli and Felici decided not to travel to Vittorio Veneto that day. After all, all the others were dead. They, themselves, unaware of their impending doom, were, too, as good as dead. _____ "One beautiful life . . . explodes into a trail of death and destruction in the Roman Catholic Church" Howard Jason Smith, Boston Globe"

About the Author:

Born in New England, George Lucien Gregoire did both his undergraduate and graduate work in Massachusetts schools. He spent his military years in U.S. Army Intelligence in Italy and the Arctic and his professional career as an officer of American and European corporations. He was an American industrialist operating in Central America dealing with the same banks the Vatican was involved with when the bank scandal and revolution he speaks of took place. For a time, he was a national figure in cooperative education and has served on the boards of both secondary schools and universities. He is the founding trustee of charitable organizations, many providing education to impaired children. Gregoire made the acquaintance of John Paul in the sixties when the Pope-as bishop of a mountain province-was involved in the priest-worker revolution which gave rise to the overwhelming success of the communist and socialist parties in the polls in Italy.
