  1. Steve, "Birds of a feather....." Evidently Draskovitch had extensive connections, which guys like De Pugh (Minutemen) could use. Guys like Oliver and Draskovitch were seeking compatriots further to the Right at that time, who were more action oriented than Welch. Bill
  2. Dr.Slobodan M. Draskovitch; Native of Serbia who fled his country (Communism) and became a citizen of U.S. in 1956. He was a writer for and member of the National Council of the JBS, He "resigned" from it along with Revilo Oliver, after some "acrimonious disputes" with Robert Welch, in I believe August of 1966. Author of ,"Tito, Moscow's Trojan Horse" and Editor of "Srpska Borba" (Serbian Struggle), a weekly newspaper in Chicago. Was considered "one of the worlds best informed men in all aspects of the Communist Conspiracy" Sources are my personal files and Weisberg files on Draskovitch. Bill
  3. I have corrected my post typo in which I wrote Oswald had Walkers address in his notebook, it should have been name and phone #. Bill
  4. I think things are getting a little twisted around. Caulfield’s theory is not that Walker knew Oswald personally or had a direct relationship with him. Rather, that Oswald’s involvement in the shooting attempt may have been the result, of his getting involved with others who did have relationship with “Ted” The reference by Caufield to Oswald and Walker “possibly working together”, was in regards to the Police ignoring the odd fact that Oswald had Walkers name and phone number in his address (note)book (p392). Not only did the DPD,FBI and the WC fail to consider that possibility, every subsequent investigation did as well, as far as I know.... Caufield is not saying they did know each other, but why was this possible clue ignored ? Bill
  5. I'm not sure multiple choice polls are a good source of data for conclusions, since there might be many variables within a vote. It is also dependent on an individuals knowledge or understanding of the evidence at hand. Yes, it's interesting on a surface level but after that... can we really draw real conclusions? Just asking. Bill
  6. Scott, Not quite sure what you mean by "Banister FBI reporting to McCord" ?? Could you clarify that a bit? Thanks Bill
  7. Craig, The CIA had as much love for JFK as Walker did.There would have been little motivation to collaborate in this regard and if it had happened, that secret would have been played to the hilt (Blackmail) by CIA. JFK would have been fully aware of that potential gambit, and not risked it. Bill
  8. The government and the media did such a propaganda mind trip on the American people which continues to this day, that most young folks will never know (confused), or even want to know the truth (weary and non- relevant),about what was taken away from them. “Sheeple” forever is the goal, and it works well enough that it is repeated every year at this time Re- -propped…like clockwork! Just my opinion......... Bill
  9. Paul B. When you’re running a covert operation do you reveal your relationships in writing and risk blowing the Op? Banister, Walker and Co. weren’t foolish enough to do that, and if there were breaches that they knew about they would have tried to resolve them before it did any damage. It would have been very poor tradecraft to leave evidence like you suggest around, especially when your plotting to kill the President! You don’t commit those things to paper, especially anything linking yourself to the fall guy. If at one point there were some written evidence linking individuals with Oswald, then surely after 11-22, all who had any sense of self-preservation would make sure it was destroyed. That’s not to mention what the interested parties in Government (pushing the agenda of the ‘Lone Assassin theory’) were concealing. This is what we were looking for when searching these individuals’ papers etc. What we found time and again was correspondence files in pertinent times and years were missing or purged, especially of any discussion of the assassination. So much so, that it became a suspicious pattern. So, if there ever was any written correspondence or discussion with, or regarding Oswald and the assassination, it would have been removed. We were told by several archivists that collections had been edited, and or parts withheld by the families requests. Material was also confiscated by the FBI and other agencies of Gov. This happened to us with the Hale Boggs collection at Tulane, and the archivist finally acknowledged it, due to his disgust that it had even happened. Many of these collections came with caveats regarding use, especially their ‘correspondence’ files. We found for example at University Of Miss. that there were entire boxes of correspondence withheld indefinitely in the James O. Eastland Papers. “Why?” we asked, “They just are” was the response. If Edwin Walker had an address book with Oswald’s address or contact info, would it be left in the papers for public viewing? I’m sure Walker and /or his relatives including his nephew who donated them, would have sanitized the record before release, which by the way was “restricted” (read banned) for many years to “researchers” Wonder why?... I don’t. Bill ---------------------
  10. Actually Ernie, Jeff and I agree totally on this. If the book included all of our sources and citations, the book would have been back to 1,200+ pages again.I mentioned this example, as a means to show there was not a monolithic viewpoint among all Right Wingers. I don't believe Caufield states that at all. Write a book, and deal with editors who insist on compromise and brevity. Bill
  11. There were radical anti- communists and there were radical anti- communists racists. They often co-mingled and sat at the same tables. However, that doesn’t mean they all shared the same particular philosophies across the board. Walker complained / explained to J. Evetts Haley, that Robert Morris was not quite like us on the segregation front. He also had to be convinced of the threat in their view, of the United Nations threat to world order. This is documented in a letter from Walker to Haley. These folks are not always monolithic, or in lock step with each other. Like any movement there are ego’s and differing opinions on some issues. Yet, in the end they had an overriding mutual commitment to the anti- communist agenda! This is what brought them together in the first place. Compromises were made along the way, to facilitate those objectives. Even Hitler had his problems with contrary viewpoint’s among his loyalists. Bill
  12. It is my understanding that the FBI is not a prosecutorial body. That would have to come from the Justice Dept. and the AG. The FBI’s job was to investigate and gather information. Bill
  13. We don't know that it was LHO that Hubie was referring to in this instance. However, it shows a definite proclivity and MO as to what these folks were up to at the time! The activities that LHO subsequently engaged in, fit the designed program to a tee. If it wasn't directed by Banister it definitely helped his cause, coincidence? Bill
  14. Jim, I believe this "T-2" source referred to information taken from FBI informant Victor Thomas Vicente, who was was opening/ intercepting mail and allowing FBI access to FPCC material in New York office. He found Oswald's letter photographed it, and On April 21, 1963, Vicente -" advised that Lee H. Oswald of Dallas, Texas, was in contact with FPCC of New York City at which time he advised that he passed out pamphlets for the FPCC.....” ( Bill Simpich in "FPCC and the Cuban Revolution" article). The" Dallas T-2" designation was puzzling for years until this revelation, since it seemed to indicate that the info was from a local source, when it was actually from an illegal mail intercept program in NY which they were trying to disguise.
