Jackie Kennedy was the female James Bond. Licensed to kill James Bond was a fictional character created by Ian Fleming, but the real life career of the female James Bond far surpasses any of the plots in his spy novels. TRUTH is indeed stranger than fiction and Ian Fleming could never have imagined the exploits of this licensed to kill female James Bond.
Jane's first spying assignment was an attempted CIA coup d'etat in France!!
Immediately after her graduation from George Washington University, Hugh and Janet recommended her to their close friend, spymaster Alan Dulles. Jane must have really relished that assignment, as her great-grandfather served under British Secret Service agent Napoleon Bonaparte.
Dulles told her that before she could advance in the CIA, and receive her license to kill, she must demonstrate her killing ability by performing a "hit" for the Agency. In June 1951, Jane and her sister Caroline Lee left for a European vacation. That vacation was just her spying cover.
In 1951, the Korean War was raging and could have turned into WWIII at any time.
France was officially neutral and only sent a token force to fight in Korea.
In June 1951, Jane and her younger sister Caroline Lee were sent to Europe on a "vacation."
In reality, Alan Dulles wanted to overthrow the legitimate French government and replace it with a military dictatorship. Overthrowing constitutional governments is the raison d'être for the existence of the CIA. Jane's spying cover was "reporter" for Vogue magazine.
Vincent Jules Auriol was the first President of the French Fourth Republic.
A CIA hit team was already in France planning to overthrow and replace him with a military dictatorship.
Jane Bond and her sister were part of that team.
Thanks to the Directorate-General for External Security, and the Directorate-General for Internal Security, the plot was foiled. France remained a Republic, with an independent foreign policy, and she was never caught up in the anti-Communist hysteria of Dulles, Joe McCarthy, and other right wing fanatics.
The 2 dejected spies returned home in September 1951. That experience in France was considered good training for the future exploits of the female James Bond.
Jane's second assignment was a successful CIA coup d'etat in Cuba!!
Even though that coup d'etat failed, Dulles must have been very pleased with the performance of his first female spy because she was recommended for more advanced training.
From October 1951 to January 1952, nothing is known of the whereabouts of Jane. Most likely she was undergoing intensive covert operations training for her next all important assignment:
Jackie's first job after college was with the CIA. The Central Intelligence Agency, formed in 1947 by President Harry Truman's National Security Act, evolved from World War II's Office of Strategic Services (OSS). In its charter it was charged with "coordinating the nation's intelligence activities and correlating, evaluating and disseminating intelligence which affects national security."
Nothing has ever been written about her tenure there, and, intriguingly, there is no record of any of Jackie's activities from October 1951 to January 1952. She and Lee traveled in Europe during the summer, a trip that was a graduation present for Lee, who had just finished Miss Porter's and was about to go to Sarah Lawrence. The Bouvier sisters created a delightful scrapbook of their trip, which they later published in the 1970s under the title One Special Summer. They returned from Europe on September 15, and Jackie's job as the Inquiring Photographer for the Washington Times-Herald started in January 1952, but there is no record in any of the multitude of biographies that have been written about Jacqueling Kennedy Onassis that cover her activities in the late fall and early winter of 1951. (Mulvaney, Diana & Jackie, Maidens, Mothers, Myths, pp. 73-74).
After she completed her CIA training, Jane was now sent to Cuba to participate in a CIA coup d'etat against the lawfully elected government of Cuba.
In 1940, Cuba adopted a Constitution which was inspired by the U.S. Constitution.
Votes for the position of President and Vice President were held separately.
The Presidential term was limited to 4 years with the candidate eligible to run again after 8 years.
The 1940 Constitution of Cuba was implemented during the presidency of Federico Laredo Brú and took effect on October 10, 1940. Widely considered one of the most progressive constitutions at the time, it provided for land reform, public education, a minimum wage and other social programs. It had 286 articles in 19 sections.
Thanks to that Constitution, Cuba enjoyed a golden age during the Presidencies of Dr. Ramón Grau and Carlos Prío Socarrás. It can be described as the Eisenhower era in Cuba.
Assisted by Jane Bond and the CIA, Fulgencio Batista seized power in March 1952.
That was the end of the golden era for Cuba.
Jane spoke Spanish fluently and she had previous experience during the attempted coup d'etat in France.
Jane was also intimately involved in the Revolution that brought "Communist" Fidel Castro to power in 1959.
The dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista led directly to the dictatorship of Fidel Castro. From 1952 onward, the country was ruined by the CIA as their Mafia gained a virtual stranglehold on the economy. What eventually led to the Cuban Missile Crisis was the close ties between CIA Castro and MI6 Nikita Khrushchev.
Jane Bond's third assignment was to marry John Fitzgerald Kennedy!!
After ruining Cuba with a military dictatorship, Jane's next assignment was to marry a young senator from Massachusetts named John Fitzgerald Kennedy.
By following the career of the female James Bond, it can be proven conclusively that she was completely OWNED by the Agency. Once you successfully perform a "hit" or execution, you belong to them completely for the rest of your life. Nothing can get you out of the CIA snake pit except divine intervention. That is why you won't find very many ex-spies writing their autobiographies.
Jane's fourth assignment was a CIA coup d'etat in the United States!!
After the debacle of the 1956 Suez Canal Crisis, everything changed geopolitically. Winston Churchill finally realized that President Eisenhower was not going to nuke the Soviets or help him restore the collapsing British Empire. His many spies in the U.S. went into overdrive as they planned nothing less than a military takeover of the land of the free.
Immediately after Lyndon Johnson was nominated for Vice President, Dulles visited him in Texas and appraised him of his role in the upcoming coup d'etat.
He reminded him of the successful coup d'etat in Cuba and the fact that the President's wife was CIA all the way.
Sinister general Edward Lansdale was in charge of the meticulous planning for the coup d'etat.
Gneral Edward Lansdale reassured Curtis "Mad Bomber" LeMay that he would get his first strike on the Soviet Union just as soon as Kennedy was assassinated.
When Allen Dulles told Jane about her role in the upcoming coup d'etat, she was not too thrilled. Suppose something went wrong or the plot backfired. When Dulles reassured her that the Pentagon, the FBI, and the local police in Dallas would cooperate fully, she finally consented.
When Alan Dulles told Jane of her role in the upcoming coup d'etat, she was not thrilled.
Nevertheless, Dulles assured her that the military takeover would be a complete success and that the end justified the means.
Dulles also reassured her that the CIA and the FBI would do their utmost to eliminate anybody who questioned her role in the assassination.
Jane's fifth assignment was to eliminate Bobby Kennedy!!
Much to the chagrin of Lyndon Johnson and the Pentagon, the plot unraveled when Oleg von Mohrenschildt, aka "Lee Harvey Oswald," was not killed in the Texas Theater. The plot and the assassination had succeeded brilliantly right up to the moment the police surrounded the theater.
Dulles knew that Bobby would be the main problem after the assassination.
Bobby was close to his brother and he planned to run for President in 1968.
As President, he could force J. Edgar Hoover to retire and reopen the investigation.
Jane was SHAKEN by the failed coup d'etat but she was not STIRRED to repentance. As a matter of fact, she was so SHAKEN that she considered committing SUICIDE.
After the assassination, Jane was a frequent visitor to Hickory Hill, Bobby's home in McLean, Virginia. Bobby arranged for a Jesuit priest named Richard McSorley to visit her often under the guise of playing tennis:
"Do You THINK God would separate me from my husband if I killed myself?"
Jackie's question, lobbed over the net like one of her casual volleys, left McSorley dumbfounded. He just stared as the former first lady poured out her feelings.
"It is so hard to bear," Jackie exclaimed, in her little girl voice. "I feel as though I am going out of my mind at times. Wouldn't God understand that I just want to be with him?" (Maier, The Kennedys: America's Emerald Kings, p. 470).
No matter how many times she confessed the murder to the priest, he could not alleviate the guilt that was consuming her like a cankerworm. Incest is not one of Rome's 7 deadly sins although the Bible calls it a horrible abomination.
With all of Jane's "education," she never seemed to realize that it was King Henry's incest that led to the glorious Reformation in England.
Jane was in New York when Bobby was assassinated, but she kept Dulles appraised of his every move.
Presidential candidate Robert Kennedy was assassinated in Los Angeles, on June 5, 1968.
