  1. A podcast by JFK Facts Editor Jefferson Morley got me thinking about the uncritical treatment the conspiracy community has given the allegations of former Alpha 66 member Antonio Veciana through the years. Several statements made by Morley in that podcast are indicative of the problem. http://wtracyparnell.blogspot.com/2017/04/another-slobbering-love-affair.html
  2. The problem with this theory is that Bishop was occasionally at the training sessions with Melton. So, according to Veciana they were two separate individuals.
  3. Thanks Larry for the reply. Morley has posted the following document as "proof" of Veciana's CIA involvement. Since you have more expertise than myself with CIA documents I wonder if you would take a stab at interpreting it. http://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=66984#relPageId=2
  4. Larry, In the original story as told by Fonzi in HSCA volume X and which is at least partly confirmed by the 1976 interview notes (now available at my site) in 1960 in Havana, Veciana entered a three week program by a "Mr. Melton" that involved "some training in the use of explosives and sabotage techniques, [but] most of the program consisted of lessons in propaganda and psychological warfare." In the story that Veciana is now telling, he includes the training by Melton but adds a polygraph test and questioning after being given a pill that acted as a sort of truth serum. It is unclear to me why he would not have mentioned any of this previously if it were true. As you point out, the polygraph is something that they would have done so no mention of that until now is curious. For those interested in the subject, watch for the next part of my series in which I will continue a skeptical look at the story as presented by Fonzi. I will also be releasing more documents from the National Archives pertaining to the Veciana story. My series on Veciana so far: http://wtracyparnell.blogspot.com/2017/04/gaeton-fonzi-and-veciana-allegations.html http://wtracyparnell.blogspot.com/2017/04/trained-to-kill.html http://wtracyparnell.blogspot.com/2017/04/wynne-johnson.html
  5. But wouldn't the HSCA and Fonzi have been interested in these details? And he mentioned training by Melton just not with these details. And "Smith" was never mentioned before this at all.
  6. There is "new information" for sure. Veciana’s tale now includes suicide pills, disappearing ink, lie detector tests, truth serum and other clichés that are notably absent from earlier versions of the story. http://wtracyparnell.blogspot.com/2017/04/trained-to-kill.html
  7. I have released Fonzi's original notes from the Veciana interviews so everyone can compare the story as it was originally told with that being presented in Veciana's and Fonzi's books (scroll to bottom of page for links). You will find some aspects of the story are essentially similar, but some are very different. http://wtracyparnell.blogspot.com/2017/04/gaeton-fonzi-and-veciana-allegations.html
  8. The second part of my series on the Maurice Bishop story is a list of questions for Antonio Veciana inspired by his new book Trained to Kill. Veciana’s tale now includes suicide pills, disappearing ink, lie detector tests, truth serum and other clichés that are notably absent from earlier versions of the story. http://wtracyparnell.blogspot.com/2017/04/trained-to-kill.html
  9. I would be curious to hear how they explain these photos that are neither.
  10. Bumped for Wynne Johnson.
  11. Yes everyone, the evil FBI, WC, HSCA, Secret Service and whoever else is lying. Except when any of these entities provide information that can be used by John Armstrong in his "book" Harvey and Lee as proof of his theories. Then all of a sudden they are trustworthy.
  12. All I see are photos of the one and only LHO. And I am not sure why you keep posting this image and claiming it has some relevance to the H&L theory. Jack White had his own theories such as there 3 or 4 Marguerites and several Oswalds. And this poster is meant to convince the gullible of that fact. Also not sure why you are spamming this forum with material that has been addressed already. I guess we can think of it as the "greatest hits" of Hargrove. Edit: Apparently Jim is ready to expand the H&L theory since he says a number of photos in the poster are neither "Harvey" or "Lee." Are you branching out Jim or is this approved by Armstrong?
  13. I'll try and explain this one more time. It isn't even an argument. Gaeton Fonzi, who wrote the HSCA Volume X section on Veciana stated: The committee's interest in the relationship between Antonio Veciana and Maurice Bishop is of course predicated on Veciana's contention that he saw Bishop with Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas a few months before the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
  14. That was an assumption on my part and I stand corrected if I mischaracterized what you were saying. However, the fact that the meeting was at Southland is just an assumption on Fonzi's part and not based on anything that Veciana said in the March 1976 interviews, his HSCA testimony or the Dick Russell interview. And Veciana could be expected to remember the Southland building because of its unusual height and he admits this in his book. But he never mentioned the height of the building and only said in the March 2 interview that it was "blue or white." In the March 11 interview, he said it was "blue," and in his HSCA testimony he said it had "blue marble or blue ornaments." Now, of course, Veciana is making all sorts of claims but I think his early statements are more indicative of the truth in this case.
  15. Of course, "the committee" in this case was Fonzi so it is his argument as well.
