Lennon's assassin

Jose Sanjenis Perdomo , a man of many aliases (including Joaquin Sanjenis, Sam Jenis, Sanjenis Perdomo , Jose Joaquin and probably Luis Sanjenis), was a Chief of Police during Cuban President Carlos Prio's regime who went into exile after Fidel Castro took power. Working from CIA/Miami station, he recruited most of the members of Operation 40 (a CIA hit squad). He was working as night doorman at the Dakota on Dec. 8, 1980, when John Lennon was killed.

Mark Chapman himself confirmed the claim that Jose Sanjenis Perdomo was working as night doorman and was outside the Dakota on Dec. 8, 1980, the night John Lennon was killed, and the fact that he was at the scene of the crime is consequently not in dispute. Moreover, when the shooting occured, instead of apprehending the alleged murderer, the doorman encouraged the crazed Chapman to seek to escape by screaming, "Leave! Get out of here!" Jose Sanjenis Perdomo had also asked Mark David Chapman if he knew what he had just done, to which Chapman reportedly replied that he had just shot John Lennon. Perdomo subsequently identified Chapman as the assailant.

Initially Perdomo was mistakenly referred to as Jay Hastings, the bearded, burly desk clerk who worked in the lobby, and who tried to give Lennon a tourniquet.

Rolling Stone's special issue memorializing Lennon, gives the names of all the other witnesses of the assassination, but Perdomo is referred to only as "the doorman stationed outside" and "the other doorman".

Frank Sturgis claimed Joaquin Sanjenis died of natural causes in 1974; however, this was never confirmed. In 1981, Warren Hinckle and William Turner wrote a book titled The Fish is Red: The Story of the Secret War Against Castro and the following excerpt essentially exposes the truth that Woodward and Bernstein ignored:

"On a June morning in 1972, the week after the Watergate break-in, Joaquin Sanjenis left his modest import-export office in Miami's Cuban barrio and drove down SW Eighth Street to the Anthony Abrams Chevrolet Agency. Jose Joaquin Sanjenis Perdomo was a plain man of undifferentiated features, which was in his profession, an asset: He was a professional spy. His personality suited his work in that neither encouraged close personal relationships. His was a lonely life, sweetened by habitual cups of Cuban coffee; he looked forward to his forthcoming retirement, although he would not live long enough to enjoy it. It is testimony to the importance his employers gave to his carefully nurtured anonymity that when he died, of natural causes, in 1974, his family was not notified until after the funeral. Joaquin Sanjenis was, for over ten years, the head of the CIA's supersecret Operation 40 in Miami.

The wear of a decade of living in the shadows showed on the spy's face that morning as he drove into the automobile agency's service entrance. Sanjenis had launched scores of ships and planes on clandestine raids against Cuba and had sent hundreds of men on missions from which there had been no return. He was able to offer only the most mute of patriotic explanations to the bereaved families. There were no official missing-in-action reports in the Secret War against Cuba. It was Joaquin Sanjenis's job to keep his troops, as himself, faceless."

(Warren Hinckle & William Turner, The Fish is Red: The Story of the Secret War Against Castro, 1981, Martin & Row Publishers, ISBN 0-06-038003-9, pp. 307-308)

Whether Jose Joaquin Sanjenis Perdomo actually died in 1974, is a point which was conclusively challenged when Johm Lennon was murdered. On page 354 of the Hinckle and Turner book, under "Notes and Sources," they gave the following source for their claim that Sanjenis died in 1974: "Authors' interview with Frank Sturgis." Needless to say, the word of Frank Sturgis is worthless in the context of the Lennon murder. Set aside that Sturgis is a convicted felon (Watergate burglary) and an employee of the CIA, Sturgis was in fact exercising his constitutional right to refrain from incriminating himself, as long as he was not held accountable for lying he too got away with murder on a rather routine basis.

Hinckle and Turner described the supposed death of the co-conspirator of the plot to murder Lennon in the following terms: "It is testimony to the importance his employers [the CIA] gave to his carefully nurtured anonymity that when he died, of natural causes, in 1974, his family was not notified until after the funeral." Moreover, the disinformation generated by Sturgis nurtured Sanjenis's anonymity after the murder of John Lennon."

The multiple alisase of this anti-Castro Cuban exile and member of Brigade 2506 during the Bay of Pigs Invasion in 1961, made it difficult to trace him but he was essentially a professional hitman who worked closely with Watergate burglar, Frank Sturgis. These fanatics targeted domestically after the failed CIA operation to overthrow Fidel Castro and Watergate was simply the tip of a well concealed iceburg, where the routine tendency to dictate political will through illegal methods and means that included violence has never been officially exposed.

The facts that were ignored include the following:

* Jose Perdomo was the doorman at the Dakota on Dec. 8, 1980, the night Lennon was killed.
* Jose Perdomo was at the crime scene when the murder occurred.
* As soon as Mark Chapman told Jose Perdomo that he had shot Lennon, Perdomo told Mark to run, the smoking gun which exposes his direct complicity. (watch youtube below).
* Jose Perdomo implicated Lennon's assailant. One of the arresting officers, Peter Cullen, did not believe Chapman shot Lennon. Cullen believed the shooter was a handyman at the Dakota, but Perdomo convinced Cullen it was Chapman. Cullen thought Chapman "looked like a guy who worked in a bank."
* Jose Perdomo was an anti-Castro Cuban exile. Perdomo and Chapman discussed the Bay of Pigs Invasion and JFK's assassination a few hours before Lennon was killed, confirming the identity of the Perdomo who was a member of Brigade 2506 during the Bay of Pigs Invasion in 1961, the failed CIA operation to overthrow Fidel Castro.
* Cuban Information Archives reveal a "Jose Joaquin Sanjenis Perdomo" (aliases: Joaquin Sanjenis, Sam Jenis) was a member of Brigade 2506 during the Bay of Pigs Invasion in 1961.
* Joaquin Sanjenis (one of Perdomo's aliases) worked closely with convicted Watergate burglar Frank Sturgis (deceased) for about ten years on the CIA's payroll.
* Frank Sturgis falsely claimed Joaquin Sanjenis died of natural causes in 1974.

In retrospect, the fact that Perdomo, Nixon, Sturgis and the like, are responsible for the murder of John Lennon is not in doubt. The case was declared closed on the night of the murder, and the police report is lacking in any substantive detail. Yet what it does say is that Chapman was carrying $2,201.76 in cash when arrested and declared himself unemployed, and if properly investigated, one must necessarily conclude that Mark David Chapman was just another classic patsy on autopilot.

Next: The smoking gun that exposes the complicity of Perdomo.
