  1. 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
  2. I would like to turn the attention of Forum members to a remarkable testimony of Mr. Wynne Johnson. Wynne was 15 years old in 1963, and had a girlfriend Vicki. Vicki and Wynne liked to visit the roof of the Southland Center to view the scenery of Dallas. And so they did on September 7, 1963. As unexpected and unbelievable as only the life can pose, these two children became witnesses of an event which researchers of the President Kennedy assassination consider as a clear and undisputed proof of a direct contact between Oswald and Maurice Bishop alias a CIA asset David Atlee Phillips: their meeting in Dallas in September 1963. Thanks to Gaeton Fonzi’s research, we know that that meeting also included Antonio Veciana, one of the chief representatives of anti-Castro movement in Miami. It was Veciana who told Fonzi and the House Committee about the Bishop-Oswald meeting. Wynne and Vicki were approaching the Southland Center when a taxi cab passed and a young man, Lee Harvey Oswald, stepped out. Oswald entered the main lobby, met with Phillips and both men started to talk. Shortly, Veciana came in via a different entrance. And while the three men stood together in the lobby, Wynne and Vicki also entered a long corridor and headed towards the three men. Mr. Wynne Johnson recorded details of their encounter with Oswald, Phillips and Veciana in three video sequences. Wynne followed every possible lead to support his story. More than fifty years which elapsed could have taken its toll on the vividness of Wynne’s memories. However, Mr. Wynne Johnson had the courage to come forward and speak. Mr. Johnson, in my view, is an honest man and seeks neither fame nor money. Wynne also shows a certain type of charming naivety in his approach towards researchers and certain books owing to the fact that he did not research the assassination case for fifty years. This only strengthens Wynne’ testimony in my eyes. Mr. Wynne Johnson posted his story on YouTube, and this is how I came to it. I decided to suggest Wynne to present his story to the Forum members since his story is also a part of the history of the assassination case, and as such it has to be preserved. I would therefore appreciate if those researchers who disagree or have doubts about this comparatively recent testimony could express their views in a polite way – about the same polite way as it was the custom in old Forum posts from 2005. Please find here the links to Mr. Wynne Johnson’s YouTube videos: Southland Center 1963, part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sKw_ELuXYj8&t=5s Southland Center 1963, part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uO1-Ezw6Qkw Southland Center 1963, part 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhxMlnkeFV4 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I wrote a message to Wynne few weeks ago. I wanted to know what could be the reason for Lee Harvey Oswald to undertake a long trip from New Orleans to Dallas and not to spend any time to converse with Phillips. This is what Mr. Wynne Johnson wrote back. I am copying the relevant part of his email with Wynne’s approval: Mr. Wynne Johnson, 9-10/2/2017: “With a certain qualification, the only people at that end of the lobby arrived in the order: Phillips, Oswald, Veciana, and then, simultaneously, Wynne and Vicki. Oswald had a very short amount of time with Phillips before Veciana came in. This is known from Oswald himself in phone conversation with Judyth Vary Baker. See her book Me & Lee. I myself know that Phillips and Oswald did not have much time together before Vicki and I came in, but slightly longer than you might think, because Vicki and I came down the long corridor at an exceptionally slow walk. … It is true that Oswald was supposed to meet with Phillips that day, but Phillips sent him away, back to New Orleans, as soon as the three of them got outside. We know this both from what Veciana told Fonzi (see his book) and what Lee himself told Judyth. What they did not know is the probable reason why Phillips changed his mind about talking to Oswald then. The reason is me. Phillips suspected that 15-year-old -- in fact, probably both of us 15-year-olds. I assure you that this actually happened. I saw Veciana in person in Miami in October, 2015. He does not remember the encounter well. We spoke entirely in Spanish. Although I did not ask him, a good friend of his had told me by e-mail that he did not know English very well in 1963. Therefore, he could well have been in a kind of foreign-language fog, so that he did not understand what was said and whatever he heard would have become easy to forget.”
  3. This article, which is the first in a series on the Maurice Bishop affair, will show that Fonzi was not an objective investigator by the time of his interviews with Veciana. Using primary sources, I will also demonstrate that Fonzi shaped facts to fit his own CIA-did-it theory of the JFK assassination. http://wtracyparnell.blogspot.com/2017/04/gaeton-fonzi-and-veciana-allegations.html
  4. Fonzi states in his book and his write-up for the HSCA that Veciana met a shadowy figure named Maurice Bishop who directed him in anti-Castro and anti-communist activities. However, an HSCA staff summary of leads (as well as other documents) states Bishop's first name is uncertain and may be "Morris, John or Jim." http://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=99779#relPageId=5&tab=page My question is how did "Morris, John or Jim" become Maurice?
