  1. Past hour
  2. Jim - That's superb! Glad to have been a tiny bit of help. Mr. Caddy - That must have been horrifying to hear. Do you ever feel afraid about what you know?
  3. It wasn't a female "officer". It was, as I said earlier, a female telephone operator at the Dallas Police Department. KLIF gave the name of the operator too---it was a "Mrs. Cripton" (sp?) or something similar to that. And she got that description, quite obviously, from her own police department. It was the official APB bulletin that went out over the air to all DPD officers at 12:44 or 12:45 PM CST. And, yes, it's a description that very likely originated (at least in part) with Howard L. Brennan. (The part about the "30-caliber rifle" didn't come from Brennan, however, since Brennan didn't know beans about rifles.) That detail probably came (originally) from Howard Brennan too. (Just as he says in his 11/22 affidavit.).... https://3.bp.blogspot.com/s1500/Howard-Brennan-Affidavit.gif Yeah, I agree, that one is strange. KLIF's 1:08 PM description of the SAME suspect suddenly changed to "approximately 5 feet, 8 inches tall, about 160 pounds". I haven't the foggiest idea how the President's killer managed to shrink two inches and lose five pounds in just five minutes (from 1:03 to 1:08). So, Cory, does this slight "description" discrepancy mean that I'm supposed to toss aside all of the other evidence in this case that clearly indicates that Lee Harvey Oswald was a double murderer on 11/22/63? Heaven help all reasonable people if that is what you're suggesting. Because the "bad memory" explanation makes by far the most sense (in my opinion).
  4. Today
  5. I have no idea. I now have a distinct feeling that my previous hunch is accurate about you, Tony..... "I hope you're not hinting at the idea that Johnny Brewer really didn't listen to ANY radio broadcasts on 11/22 and that he just LATER made up a story about listening to the radio bulletins before spotting Oswald near his store. Tell me you're not travelling down that bumpy road, Tony." ~sigh~
  6. Related Topic.... Julia Postal's December 4, 1963, affidavit is quite an interesting document too. In it, Julia says: "At approximately 1:30 PM or a little later I was working in the ticket office at the theater. I was listening to my transistor radio, and KLIF had just announced that President Kennedy was dead. I had just seen a police car go west on Jefferson. As the police went by, a man ducked inside the theater. .... I stepped from the box office to the front and looked west. When I turned around, Johnny Brewer, Manager of Hardy's Shoes Store, was standing there." The above details would seem to buttress and corroborate the testimony and statements of Johnny Brewer as well. By the way, KLIF officially announced the death of President Kennedy at precisely 1:35 PM CST (which would have been two minutes after Assistant White House Press Secretary Malcolm Kilduff had made the official announcement of JFK's death from Parkland Hospital). So Julia Postal's estimated time for when that event occurred was just about spot-on perfect.
  7. There were several people crowding Brewer's transistor radio for more than an hour; Mr. BELIN - I want to take you back to November 22, 1963. This was the day that President Kennedy was assassinated. How did you find out about the assassination, Mr. Brewer? Mr. BREWER - We were listening to a transistor radio there in the store, just listening to a regular radio program, and they broke in with the bulletin that the President had been shot. And from then, that is all there was. We listened to all of the events. Were these other potential "Oswald" witnesses investigated?
  8. David, thank you for noting yet another "strange coincidence" with the clock. I shall add it to my JFK collection. Now, assuming you are right about the broadcast at 12:54 who was the female officer and where did she get this info? I doubt Howard Brennan was so astute. Then, explain who added slender build and on what basis. Then, explain the basis of the 1:08 description. I find it odd when weighing credibility of witnesses you tend to give far latitude to some and none to others. What FACTS make you give Brewer wide latitude here. In other words, a judge uses facts to weigh witness credibility. What facts make you feel it was just a oops bad memory blunder? Thank you.
  9. Joe O'Donnel claimed to see a photograph of a small wound in the right forehead, but he may not a very credible witness. Another witness - Quentin Schwinn - told Doug Horne in 2010 that, like Dennis David, he was shown a photograph by William Bruce Pitzer which depicted JFK, lying dead with a small wound in his right forehead. A sketch reproduction of what he claimed to see is on page 43 here: https://midnightwriternews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/Washington-Conference-Sep-26-2014.pdf Doug's discussion of Quentin Schwinn: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svDEw3Jgkw8&t=106m22s
  10. I can't see how it makes much difference, since Brewer obviously already knew that information himself. I hope you're not hinting at the idea that Johnny Brewer really didn't listen to ANY radio broadcasts on 11/22 and that he just LATER made up a story about listening to the radio bulletins before spotting Oswald near his store. Tell me you're not travelling down that bumpy road, Tony.
  11. Two neurologists - Dr. Michael Chesser and Dr. Joseph N. Riley - said that the lateral skull x-rays show a small hole in the forehead with the edges of the bone pushed in. Chesser examined the full-quality originals, while Riley only had copies online. http://www.kenrahn.com/Marsh/Autopsy/riley.html http://assassinationofjfk.net/a-review-of-the-jfk-cranial-x-rays-and-photographs/
  12. What's your take on the above statement? It was after the police arrived, during the "chaos" that Postal heard on KLIF that Kennedy was dead (assassinated) Mr. BALL. And did you find out that he had died here? That President Kennedy was dead or---- Mrs. POSTAL. No, sir; I didn't. Mr. BALL. You didn't hear that? Mrs. POSTAL. I was listening to KLIF, and I was down in the little box office, and they kept saying that Parkland hadn't issued an official report, that he had been removed from the operating table, and everyone wanted to surmise, but still hope, and it was after this that they came out and said that he was officially dead. Mr. BALL. But, you didn't hear that when you were in the box office, did you? Mrs. POSTAL. Yes, I did. In fact, I was just about----it was just about the time all chaos broke loose. Did she mean she told Brewer that Kennedy had been shot?
  13. I guess he wasn't a witness but, 1. Asst./acting press secretary Malcom Kilduff on 1/22/63. Say's President's Physician, Admiral Burkley said right through his head, then point's to his right temple. https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=malcolm+kilduff+announcement+of+jfk+death&&view=detail&mid=45CD23340249C2039DE645CD23340249C2039DE6&rvsmid=BD58295FCA3C912555A1BD58295FCA3C912555A1&FORM=VDQVAP (last 30 seconds but watch the whole thing, another longer version shows Kilduff visibly shaken before it starts) 2. The KLIF reporter Tony Krome linked says Burkley says right temple. 3. James Jenkins, there assisting Humes on 11/22/63, At The Cold Shoulder Of History. 4. Dennis David, at Bethesda on 11/22/63, picture in William Pitzer's office 3-4 day's after the assassination, to the ARRB. 5. Mortician Tom Robinson, putting wax in the wound. Not sure if these are the five you are talking about, seems maybe I've read of another or two. In addition to Chambers, doesn't Mantic and Chesser conclude such regarding Scientists as well a Horne of the ARRB?
  14. According to Dallas Police Detective Don Stringfellow of the Criminal Intelligence Section, in his memo to Captain W.P. Gannaway of the Special Services Bureau dated November 23, 1963, "Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested in the balcony of the Texas Theater." https://texashistory.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metapth191000/m1/1/ According to the Dallas Police Homicide Report on J.D. Tippit, "Suspect was later arrested in the balcony of the Texas Theater" https://texashistory.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metapth191000/
  15. Caro thinks the Best and the Brightest has held up over the years? This is why I say that Caro is Establishment all the way. In my last PPoint, called Vietnam Declassified: Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, I show with new evidence why Halberstam is not just wrong, but I actually think he either lied, or knew the info he was getting was false but accepted it anyway. It is one thing to make a mistake. We all do. But then you are an alleged chronicler and you get something the exact opposite of how it happened, then there is a problem there. That betrays an agenda. Halberstam's agenda was that he was a hawk at the time JFK was trying to get out. Halberstam wanted more direct American intervention, not less. Just as his idol Jean Paul Vann did. Halberstam was so rabid that JFK tried to get him rotated out of Vietnam. The NY Times refused. So Kennedy is killed. Halberstam, Sheehan and Vann get their wish of direct US intervention and loads of it. It turns into an epic disaster. In other words Kennedy was right and they were all wrong. Does Halberstam admit any of this? Try and find anywhere that he does. The Best and the Brightest is over 600 ages of filler nonsense, you will not find Halberstam fessing up to his past hawk days or Kennedy's withdrawal plan. Halberstam was a cover up artist, plain and simple. At Gary Aguilar's December salon up in San Francisco I said this in public and I stated I would say it if Halberstam was still alive and even in that room, and dare him to sue me. Interestingly, after I made that address, Jonathan Marshall, one of these parapolitics/deep politics Peter Scott fellows, said with typical arrogance words to the effect that I was saying Kennedy was a peacenik. No Mr. Marshall. I was just presenting the newest facts on the matter. If you don't like them that is your problem. Kennedy was not going to be stupid enough to repeat the experience that he saw the French humiliated with. I don't think that takes a lot of insight. But I will say this, what LBJ did takes lot of ignorance and stubbornness. And that part if pretty obvious.
  16. And yet we know for a fact that KLIF definitely did broadcast a "description" of a "suspect" (in the Kennedy murder), and KLIF re-broadcast that description at least three times before 1:10 PM. And yet Julia apparently heard none of those re-broadcasts, even though she WAS listening to KLIF. Or are you going to LIMIT it to a description of TIPPIT'S killer (from Postal's POV)? Even though Postal was obviously NOT (in her mind) limiting any "description" of the suspect to JUST the shooting of the police officer.... MRS. JULIA POSTAL --...so, I told Johnny about the fact that the President had been assassinated. "I don't know if this is the man they want," I said, "in there, but he is running from them for some reason," and I said "I am going to call the police..."
  17. There are even more witnesses to this right forehead or right temple wound. If you collect them its about five I think. PS I made a mistake, its Tom Robinson not Charles Robinson.
  18. Damn Mr. Caddy, that's pretty deep. If your posting this did Hunt tell you anything about the JFK assassination worth killing over?
  19. Gene, I beg to disagree with you about McCord. I fail to see how a guy like that deserves a measure of respect. I look at McCord as one of these extreme right-wingers who would do almost anything Helms wanted him to do. No matter if it broke the law or not. As I wrote in my obituary, McCord even lied about his role with Phillips in the anti FPCC campaign, and this was just a few months before he died. To his own minister! As one can see by reading Jim Hougan's Secret Agenda, or my article, it is quite difficult to explain his behavior the night of the break in any benign way. And does anyone who is a security consultant not sterilize the hotel rooms, and then leaves the hotel keys with the burglars? The strongest evidence of this I think is Angelo Lano's testimony for the Nixon Library interview. He goes even further and says that Schoffler, the cop, was tipped off. I did not go into that but Jim Hougan has a fascinating appendix in his book on that issue. If you have not read Secret Agenda, then you really should.
  20. Julia Postal was listening to KLIF She said to the police when she phoned them; I said I hadn't heard the description. All I know is, "This man is running from them for some reason."
  21. Washington Metropolitan Police Detective, who was a Military Intelligence Agent assigned from the Pentagon to the Police Department, wanted me killed in the early day of Watergate for several reasons, one being he feared that I knew too much because of Howard Hunt might have told me about the Kennedy assassination. After I turned down the overture from Kalmbach and Dean during the July 4, 1972, holiday weekend to pass "hush" money to the defendants , I have reason to believe that assassination was re-considered but passed upon. -------------------------------- AFFADAVIT 1972 CONSPIRACY TO ASSASSINATE DOUGLAS CADDY, Original Attorney for the Watergate Seven I, Robert Merritt, attest to the following facts regarding my involvement with the Watergate attorney Douglas Caddy, who represented the burglars known as the Watergate Seven. On Saturday, June 17, 1972, five burglars broke into the Democratic National Committee offices in Watergate and were arrested at 2:30 Watergate Exposed 6 A. M. by Washington, D.C. Police Officer Carl Shoffler. At the time the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department employed me as a Confidential Informant and assigned me to work directly with Officer Shoffler. Two weeks before the arrests at Watergate I provided information to Shoffler about the planned break-in of the DNC that I had obtained as a Confidential Informant from a highly unusual source. By using this advance information, Shoffler developed a successful triangulation strategy that in effect set the burglars up in a form of entrapment. The Watergate scandal thus began and ultimately forced the resignation of President Nixon. Shoffler came to my apartment in Washington, D.C. late in the morning of the day of the events at Watergate and exulted in having made the arrests. He told me that he had secretly telephoned the Washington Post soon after the arrests to tip the newspaper off to what had occurred. He then demanded his special birthday present from me, which I was only too happy to perform. (First meeting) Three days later, on June 20, 1972, Shoffler showed up at my apartment with his supervisor, Police Sgt. Paul Leeper. They asked me if I knew someone by the name of Douglas Caddy, who lived at the Georgetown House, a high-rise apartment, at 2121 P St., N. W., which was directly across the street from my apartment. They told me Douglas Caddy was an attorney who was representing the Watergate burglars and that Douglas Caddy was a communist and pro-Cuban and was a leader of the Young Americans for Freedom. They wanted me to establish a sexual relationship with Douglas Caddy to find out how Douglas Caddy knew to show up for the arraignment of the burglars after their arrest. They asserted that Douglas Caddy had to be in on the conspiracy with the burglars and that in the past he had been shadowed when he frequented a leather-Levi gay bar in Greenwich Village in Manhattan. Shoffler and Leeper related that Douglas Caddy had been working as a White House attorney in a sensitive position. They claimed that I was butch enough to entice Douglas Caddy, a masculine gay guy, into a sexual affair to obtain the information they wanted. They told me that this was the most important thing that I could do for my country and that I would be well-paid if I undertook the assignment. Their initial offer was $10,000. I asked Shoffler about who it was that so desperately wanted this information from Douglas Caddy and he said that it was Prologue 7 from very high up sources in the Department of Justice and the U. S. Attorney’s office. I did not commit to doing the assignment. Two days later, on June 22, 1972, which was my birthday, Shoffler came to my apartment to give me my birthday present. He spent the entire day with me. Afterwards, when we were relaxing in bed, he gently tried to persuade me to cooperate with him and Leeper regarding the Douglas Caddy assignment. I emphatically told him “No.” I didn’t know Douglas Caddy and I didn’t know how to get to know him and I was bothered that undertaking the assignment could lead to the destruction of another gay person who apparently was still in the closet and merely attempting to represent his clients. We talked about the break-in and Shoffler told me straight out that the burglars were hired indirectly by one of the 100 families of America, which Shoffler named as the Kennedy Family. Shoffler said, “The intention of the Watergate break-in was to destroy the Nixon presidency. President Nixon was guilty of nothing in its planning.” Shoffler said that there were hidden motivations involved, such as the fear of law enforcement agencies that their turf would be reduced by President Nixon through a scheme known as the Houston Plan, the CIA’s concern that President Nixon planned to reorganize the intelligence agencies and their operations, and the Defense Department’s opposition to Nixon’s new China policy. I asked Shoffler if he was angry at me for refusing to take the Caddy assignment and he smiled at me and said he was glad that I didn’t. (Third meeting) In the March 1973, nine months after the initial overture and a month after the first Watergate trial ended, I met with Shoffler and Leeper, FBI agents Terry O’Connor and Bill Tucker and their FBI Agent-In-Charge, whose name escapes me. Leeper did most of the talking. He again tried to persuade me to take on the Douglas Caddy assignment, making an initial offer of $25,000. I refused outright. The group then said that I could be paid as much as $100,000 if I took the assignment but I still refused without providing any explanation. Once it was understood that I would not accept the offer, Leeper declared that the least I could do was to spread the rumor around Washington, D. C. that Douglas Caddy was gay in an effort to force him to come out of the closet. Their intention was to defame Douglas Caddy. This was the last attempt to persuade me to take the Douglas Caddy assignment. The group departed angrily, with the exception Shoffler, who secretly winked at me as he went out the door. Watergate Exposed 8 DISCLOSURE OF SECOND MEETING On June 17, 2009, 37 years after Watergate, I notified Douglas Caddy, now an attorney in Houston, Texas, of a well kept secret and informed him of a new Watergate revelation. (Previously I had disclosed to Douglas Caddy that there had been two meetings regarding the Caddy assignment as discussed above.) I then informed Douglas Caddy that there had been a second meeting about the Caddy assignment. It took place on June 28, 1972, with Shoffler and four others agents who were never introduced to me. I am quite certain that these agents were from either Military Intelligence or the CIA. I know that they were not FBI agents from their manner and the special type of assignment they asked me to do regarding Douglas Caddy. Shoffler and these agents met with me in my apartment at 2122 P Street, N.W. Douglas Caddy did in fact live across the street from me in the Georgetown House at 2121 P St., N.W. One of the agents, whom I will never forget, had two plastic bags, one containing two small blue pills and another that had a laboratory test tube with a small gelatin substance that was approximately ¼ inch in diameter. He referred to it as a suppository. The assignment was to become intimately acquainted with Douglas Caddy as quickly as possible. The exact description of the assignment was to engage in oral sex with Douglas Caddy and in doing so I was suppose to fondle his balls and ass, and at the same time insert the small gelatin like suppository into his rectum, which would have caused death within minutes. If there were any delay in the lethal process that would prevent me from leaving fast from his presence, then I was to take the small blue pills, which would have caused me nausea, providing me with an excuse to leave for home immediately. The agents told me that Douglas Caddy had to be eliminated without fail. My first reaction was that they were “nuts.” But then Shoffler pulled me aside and whispered that this was a very real and serious situation and the decision was entirely up to me. The agents were planning a pre-arranged way for me to meet Douglas Caddy, which they did not disclose at the time. I asked the agents what the reason was that they wanted for me to go to this length and why they and the government were taking such a risk. I was told that this matter involved a high national security situation that they were not at liberty to disclose. The Prologue 9 agents stated that their orders did not allow them to know the answers and that they were only following orders from their superiors who sometimes did not know the answers either and merely implemented instructions from those above. However, from the agents’ comments I inferred that because Douglas Caddy was gay, that was reason enough. The agents informed me that I would be well taken care of for this assignment. They also said that I would never have to worry about anything for the rest of my life. I was totally repulsed by the entire assignment and proposition. After I emphatically refused, the agents swore me to secrecy and left. Only in July of 1986 when I was subpoenaed by Shoffler to testify before the grand jury in the Lenny Bias case in Upper Marlboro, Maryland did he ever discuss this subject again. At that time he said, “Butch, I am glad that you did not go through with that Douglas Caddy assignment because I found out that those two little blue pills would have caused your instant death.” I regret that I never disclosed these facts until now. I suppressed this information out of fear for my life. Some of the background information in this affidavit about my relationship with Shoffler as a Confidential Informant was disclosed by Jim Hougan in his 1984 best-selling book, Secret Agenda: Watergate, Deep Throat and the CIA (see pages 320-323). Some was also disclosed in the Watergate Special Prosecution Force Memorandums of its two interviews of me and one of Officer Carl Shoffler in 1973. This sworn statement is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help me God. I, Robert Merritt, swear in this affidavit that the facts are true to the best of my knowledge under the penalty of perjury. Robert Merritt Subscribed and sworn to before me on the 28th of July, 2009, to certify which witness my hand and seal of office. Notary Public in and for the State of New York Ricardo S. Castro Notary Public, State of New York No. 01CA5041272 Qualified in Bronx County Comm. Exp. 08/29/09 7/29/09
  22. According to Brewer, the balcony was empty; 1964 Mr. BREWER - We went back up front and went in the balcony and looked around but we couldn't see anything. 1996 Brewer - Using the screen as a backlight we could see there were no heads up there Griggs- So the balcony was totally empty? Brewer- Yeah
  23. FOOTNOTE --- After re-examining my KLIF-Radio file, I've now discovered that there are 7 minutes of missing audio footage in the first 2-and-a-half hours of my 3-hour and 17-minute copy of KLIF's 11/22/63 assassination coverage. From the timestamps provided by the on-air reporters, I've been able to determine that the missing seven minutes occur between precisely 1:37 PM and 1:44 PM (CST). This, therefore, leaves open the possibility that a bulletin concerning the Tippit shooting could have been broadcast by KLIF during the AWOL seven-minute period. However, if such a bulletin was broadcast during that time period, it would likely have been at a time when Johnny Brewer wasn't even inside his Hardy's Shoe Store to hear the bulletin on his transistor radio, because Brewer by that time had probably already left his store and followed Oswald up the street to the Texas Theater. But we must always keep in mind the fact that nobody was looking at a stopwatch or a clock when these events were unfolding on Jefferson Boulevard in Oak Cliff on November 22nd, so the word "approximately" must always be inserted into discussions like this one when we're talking about "timelines", etc. http://jfk-archives.blogspot.com/Johnny Brewer And The Shooting Of J.D. Tippit
  24. From Dale Myers (in 2015).... ---- Quote On: ---- "The death certificate "discrepancy" - as I noted in "With Malice" - was explained during a 1983 interview I conducted with the late Dr. Paul Moellenhoff, who attended Tippit at Methodist. He told me that the clocks within the emergency area at Methodist showed different times - neither of them accurate as it turns out. He used the 1:15 p.m. time shown on one of the clocks. The time reported to the FBI by Dr. Liquori (With Malice [WM], 2013 [edition], p.557) - 1:24 pm - is probably the accurate one based on the recorded timing of Bowley's call, the recorded departure of the ambulance from 10th and Patton, and the known drive time from 10th and Patton to Methodist Hospital. DPD Officer Davenport noted that Moellenhoff removed one slug from Tippit's body at 1:30 pm (WM 2013 p.536). That same time (1:30 pm) made its way into Leavelle's homicide report (WM 2013 p.519) as the time Tippit was pronounced DOA (which couldn't possibly be true, right? You don't pull a slug from a body until after he's pronounced dead). This matches up with Moellenhoff's 1983 recollection that he removed a slug from the body within ten minutes of declaring Tippit DOA. My caption under the death certificate (WM 2013 p.506) seeks to clarify the discrepancy between the Time of Injury (1:18 pm) and the time Death Occurred (1:15 pm). Again, it stems from my conversation with Dr. Moellenhoff. The 1:18 pm time, of course, probably refers to the time that Bowley's radio call was received - not the actual time Tippit was shot. The 1:15 p.m. notation (although close in time to the actual moment of the shooting, as far as I can calculate) probably stems from Dr. Moellenhoff's use of an inaccurate Methodist emergency room clock. Interesting, huh? All this fuss because no one at Methodist bothered to synchronize the clocks to actual time (some running fast, some running slow). Can you imagine how many other death certificates were marked with times that were off by a few minutes? But what does it matter in those cases? Not one whit." -- Dale K. Myers; February 7, 2015 http://jfk-archives.blogspot.com/2010/06/tippit-timelines.html
  25. My possible explanation ~ Why would Oswald be standing in front of a window near the "Snipers nest" moments after the ambush crossfire? If he is a patsy why not show the world if anyone had a camera, '"Why would I be showing myself in plain site unless I was just a patsy?" (How would he have known the Photo would be so hard to make out?). Maybe nobody on that floor was supposed to hit anyone and Lee as a patsy was forced to go along to save his family as Judyth Baker wrote. So in court he could say "that is me (if someone saw him there or took a photo) and there were others up there watching me". (A few witnesses saw other men on the 6th floor). If he was left on his own somewhere in the building or in the entrance could the plotters risk Lee who may have alerted the authorities about the plot in Chicago a few weeks earlier take the risk of Lee doing it again by running out ahead of the motorcade with a warning? The photos that show him or his look-alike out clearly are enhanced or photo shopped, not the original Commission Exhibit. The original negative seems to have disappeared. So, if he was a patsy and being watched and lived to tell his side, the photo does not prove he shot anyone so maybe someone who knew about the plot made sure the negative was missing. So was Lee a Patsy? Why was the Patsy killed by Ruby who asked an FBI informant to come watch the fireworks with him from a few blocks away. If he lived he could have cracked the case and his photo or being seen in the window would make sense with the rest of his story (I didn't shoot anyone!). Those who were up there could have told him there was a bad guy who was impersonating him who they wanted to catch and was going to kill Kennedy maybe for Castro and we have information He will be acting with your ID. So maybe Lee was trapped or wanted to help if he was told by handlers "This is a test or trap to catch the bad guys". Now I was also set-up (now workin' on my book, Born To Spy) And was told the day after by a couple of agents on Saturday near Point Blank Texas after the double Oswald was Shotgunned Friday night at the Pines Motel, Sam Houston National Forest where men were celebrating from the moment I arrived after dark. Later I was told not to go outside because there was a man with a shotgun going to shoot the guy who shot President Kennedy. The place got quiet after the shots (I'll bet he had a Hell of a story too). So one of the agents told me Saturday late afternoon that Hoover told them on Friday it was a Test that went Bad. By the way Hoover got on the extra Chartered Bus at the Air Port in Houston I was forced onto earlier that then picked up Hoover, the Bushes, and other operatives. I reported this to authorities in 91 and again last May. Witnesses saw Hoover in Texas including late Thursday Night. I haven't read one report where Hoover was seen in DC on Friday and Hoover leaves out completely where he was and what he did on Friday in his WC report until he gets the story straight on the Phone that night with LBJ. Yes, Summers reports Hoover called RFK immediately after the shots were fired told RFK he was getting more Information and will call back. Hoover never called back Why? Why did he call in the first place if he thought he had no Jurisdiction in the case. Did he think RFK did not have a TV? And where was Hoover when he called? And why are all his phone logs of the months before and after missing from the FBI Vault? I have a good idea and from first hand knowledge, this is My Possible explanation. Phil Ochs was right, Hoover was The Bad Guy.
  26. Yesterday
  27. While we tend to vilify these individuals, I'd put forward (assuming it wont be popular) that James Mc Cord was a patriot, and did many things for the country and CIA that deserve a measure of respect. It seems that - with Watergate unfolding and Richard Helms out of the loop and no longer able to protect these guys - McCord did what he had to do. It's not clear who "they" are ... but its a dangerous game they were playing ... William Colby experienced a suspicious end in 1996, 20 years after Watergate and the Rockefeller Commission. Mc Cord succumbed to pancreatic cancer and had a notable record. An Army Air Force bombardier in WWII, FBI special agent, MS in International Relations from George Washington University. More than 20 years with CIA in very sensitive roles (with a Distinguished Service Award). We may not like his politics or roles, but he was a warrior, and deserves respect.
