  1. My Brand New Theory-In-Progress

    I suspect that both Golitsyn and Nosenko were false defectors sent to drive Angleton crazy and undermine CIA, because of what was known was known of Angleton's tendencies through Philby and other sources. It was a long game, and a hard one for Nosenko, but each man would have had a certain amount of confidence that they would not be long imprisoned or executed if they failed, because of US espionage policy.
  2. My Brand New Theory-In-Progress

    One wonders what a high-level mole could have accomplished at an intelligence headquarters first run for capital by Dulles, and then run for Dulles by Angleton, Helms, and the list of hard-nose stalwarts we're familiar with. Was Angleton's mole-hunt just a symptom of the fear that the era of the Duiles brothers in government and intelligence was slipping away?* What were Allen Dulles's known comments on Angleton's obsession? It may be useful to re-examine the levels of CIA officer that fell under suspicion in this era. How high-level were any of those? Looking at the damage done by later moles such as Aldrich Ames, which rolled up overseas networks and got foreign agents (not CIA officers) killed, one wonders if mole damage wasn't an issue of national security, but of Agency morale loss, money lost in checkbook espionage, and operational hours wasted. It's doubtful the human lives lost mattered: they had been given up at the get-go. Larry Hancock, any opinion here? --------- *For that matter, were the Kennedy assassination and the spectre of a Kennedy dynasty in the Executive a symptom of this fear? Was the whole family a threat to national security? Oh, wait - it threatened the Vietnam War.
  3. My theory on who fired the fatal shot

    Maybe you should go look at the back threads I'm talking about, facepalm slinger. There was once considerable concern here about the odd appearance of Hill and Moorman in Zapruder. This does not mean I endorse the Some Like it Hot theory.
  4. My theory on who fired the fatal shot

    Actually, if you look at some of the Dealey Plaza film stills this poster has up on his web pages, there are some unrelated weirdnesses that haven't been commented on. Such as the shot in which Moorman and Hill have somehow moved over to the other side of Charles Brehm and his son, and why Babushka lady is photographing from behind the Brehms when she has a lot of open space to work in on either side of them (as if she's using the Brehms as a shield). So there's something useful in checking out the proofs for some alternative theories. People might like to look back on past threads (some involving the departed Jack White) that explored whether Moorman was on the curb or in the street when she shot her picture, and why in Zapruder Jean Hill is wearing shoes much different from those she wears in other photographs.
  5. My theory on who fired the fatal shot

    Was Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon. Were getting revenge for Marilyn Monroe.
  6. OK. But if you Google Rosin and von Braun...that aliens hoax story is repeated on at least 20 different websites, over several Google pages.. So somebody's paying to get it out there. Does Rosin get a piece of that? https://www.bing.com/search?q=carole+Rosin+von+braun&src=IE-SearchBox&FORM=IENTTR&conversationid
  7. Lansdale in Vietnam - Excerpt

    It was somewhere around the place where all eyes and guns were trained on Lansdale and his poodle that I smelled the heroism business. You're right about the outrageous enmity that the French ground command held for us, who were taking their war away from them. The higher-level politics involved is a study of its own.
  8. Lansdale in Vietnam - Excerpt

    It has been observed that the most dangerous tendency in a biographer is to let his subject become his hero.
  9. 9-11books

    Michael, how does this work? I get a 404 Not Found at the Krusch link, and "Not Found On This Server" for the individual books.
  10. Who is Abe Greenbaum?

    OK - so anybody out there have any clues to Abe Greenbaum Number One?
  11. Who is Abe Greenbaum?

    Idea deleted pending further research.
  12. Who is Abe Greenbaum?

    Tom - it's a toss-up as to whether Nagell's hermeneutics are literary or numerical. I vote that, beleaguered in prison, he wanted to be more easily understood/concealed through wordplay. It's also difficult to dismiss the Kennedy-era tag of Helms as "Dirty Dick," well-reported in the halls at Langley and the foyers of Georgetown.
  13. Who is Abe Greenbaum?

    A lot of the disguised content of Nagell's 1967 letter to Arthur Greenstein is easily decipherable, if not immediately by Greenstein, then by a posterity of assassination researchers. However, the backstory given to "Abe Greenbaum" is esoteric, and didn't later emerge to the public view, as did "Dirty Dick" Helms* and David Ferrie, whom Nagell references in the letter. Can anyone puzzle out this tale from the arcana of espionage, quoted below? [Nagell:] "Here's a more up-to-date lead on Abe Greenbaum: 'Informant F-HC reports subject handed suspected courier forty pieces of silver on 10/21/62 at Laredo, Mexico, for delivery to nuclear physicist residing in house on 92nd Street, New York City. S/A B. O. Schernnn, Washington, D.C. Field Office, reports subject seen 11/28/62 walking east on Beacon Street, constantly checking for tail, suddenly dashing into parked limousine sporting U.S.S.R. Embassy license plates, which speeds away, runs red light, terminating surveillance as Agent Schernnn forced to brake bicycle to avoid breaking the law. Informant F-111-B reports subject and suspected courier observed at King's Tavern, Wilmington, Del. on 12/6/62, paying for drinks with strange-looking silver dollars taken from bulging briefcase carried by subject. Subject now suspected of being Mr. Big in Communist plot to disrupt U.S. economy by flooding country with hard cash. /s/ I.M. NEVERWRONG, SAIC, D.C. LAIR.'" Some clues: name of FBI SAIC in DC during October-December 1962 (or is "I. M. NEVERWRONG" code for J. Edgar Hoover?); real name of Special Agent B. O. Schernn ("B[ody] O[dor]"?), when he's not appearing in satire; non-satirical meaning of informant names F-HC and F-111-B. The various streets and cities may have peculiar contextual meanings. (For instance: in what city could Greenbaum access a Russian embassy car on "Beacon Street"?) The "house on 92nd Street" may or may not refer to the famous 1941 Nazi spy ring case immortalized in the movie of the same name. For those interested, there are other mentions of Nazism in this letter defining the assassination. "Strange-looking silver dollars" = JFK's anti-Fed silver certificates? The context is a "Communist plot to disrupt [the] U.S. economy by flooding [the] country with hard cash." Nagell cites "Abe Greenbaum" specifically as a "long suspected leftist [who] is actually [a] confirmed rightist, in deep cover," working for CIA. He also says that Greenbaum is one of only two persons on Nagell's prison-approved correspondents list, and, unless Nagell is joking, maintaining contact with Greenbaum is important to his future. It would be good to establish exactly what this person meant to Nagell. So, who is "Abe Greenbaum"? Guy Banister died in 1964, three years before this letter. Nagell's cynical humor may be inverting things, but was Banister then really a "long suspected rightist [who] is actually [a] confirmed leftist, in deep cover"? Was there really a Banister-Dick Helms contact as the letter suggests, or is this figurative comedy? https://kennedysandking.com/john-f-kennedy-articles/the-private-correspondence-of-richard-case-nagell *Helms was known as "Dirty Dick" at CIA for years before the Nagell letter.

    Take a look in the past threads for this legend. Not sure, however, when the last time Robinson was interviewed.
  15. Roscoe White

    Interesting that no photos of Tippit's body at the crime scene were taken, or that any taken have not emerged.
  16. Roscoe White

    There was some discussion of the kid-in-the-restroom tale on a past thread. Doubt was raised as to veracity.
  17. communications override/hacking?

    I'll listen when I have more time, Steve, but I've never heard actual radio jamming, of any historical period. From what little I know, one type of jamming would be to broadcast a particular sound wave (or something like white noise) over a frequency or set of frequencies, so that no other signal could be heard. This could prove selective if someone's receiver entered a zone where the imposed sound wave was blocked intermittently, allowing the expected communication to break through - similar to when your car radio momentarily picks up and drops other stations than the one you wanted. I'm sure people who served in military radio communications are a better source than I.
  18. communications override/hacking?

    If it would add one extra element of security to jam local radio communications on frequencies not used by the shooter-spotters, would it have been done? That would have been the electrical equivalent of issuing phony Secret Service ID - prevent immediate intellectual connections from being made. Divert people from places they might go and choices they might make. Force responders into alternate channels of behavior under panic conditions The equivalent also of cutting the power in the TSBD momentarily, which there are witnesses to. Could jamming have been done from a laundry truck and trailer parked at an adjacent street corner? Without affecting shooter-spotter frequencies?
  19. Bull Stock Market!

    Perhaps the corporations should begin executing us if we cannot meet certain quotas for purchasing their products, due to layoffs, closings, ageism in hiring, etc.. Our relatives can redeem us by agreeing to new phone-internet-cable bundling plans. EDIT: Off topic, but seriously, let's show some appreciation for American jobs, and for the generations of American cashiers. Let's not let store cashier jobs disappear, as in the linked content below. I never use an automated checkout when I can help it, and I hope you won't either: https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/between-walmart-and-kroger-500-stores-are-about-to-ditch-cashiers/ar-BBIb5ED?li=BBnbfcL Please - let's keep some humanity in capitalism. It's bad enough that mom-and-pop stores have fallen to the large retail chains. Now the cashiers' jobs in your community will be disappearing. UPDATE: https://slate.com/technology/2018/01/jack-in-the-boxs-ceo-says-it-just-makes-sense-to-replace-people-with-robots.html Save the cashier. Really - who will you have left to b***h at about things that aren't his/her fault? Your bartender? Try it and see.
  20. Roscoe White

    Assembling an corporate-sponsored team of "experts and witnesses" behind one to split the profits of a book deal and movie deal speaks wonderfully of one's business acumen.
  21. This "rumor" was on the internet about 10 years ago, on a page with a pic of vB's niece, and her story. I notice the mantle has been taken up by Carol Rosin. Who knows the veracity of vB's supposed warning? Rosin's version is featured on sites that advertise that you, too, can become one of the Illuminati if you pay for the initiation: http://nexusilluminati.blogspot.com/2016/08/the-hoax-alien-invasion-how-wernher-von.html Who pays Rosin to spread this "info" over a dozen different internet sites? Is this Rosin's career now? My own belief is that "aliens among us" (as separate from UFOs), and alien invasions, are a hoax conveniently developed for release after World War II, both for its own confusion value and to stimulate anxiety over a Communist invasion. The hoax succeeded too well: it's now too big and enduring to be disavowed, and still has its xenophobic applications.
  22. Roscoe White

    Have you read John Armstrong on Capt. Westbrook and Officer Croy of DPD at the Tippit site?
  23. If we're going to dish von Braun rumors, his niece claimed that when he was terminally ill he told her not to believe in aliens, because they were an enormous military hoax.
  24. "we're gonna do it",

    Uh? Z's camera could see around the corner and move a building three blocks away down nearly to the Houston Street corner of Elm, in a full-frontal view that's in better focus than are nearby structures? And where's the truck and trailer? See Chris Davidson's aerial above. Three blocks away?
