I was wondering if anyone has a reference or information that confirms newsman Dan Rather was a close friend (from childhood) to LBJ aide Cliff Carter?

Do we know whether they were raised in the same city? They were both Texas boys as I recall. If they were raised in the same city it is certainly possible they knew each other.

Hi James:

Dan Rather's wife , Jean Goebel.. was born in Smithville, Texas. Dan was born in Wharton,Texas 9/31/31..

Clifton ( Beau) Carter, was from Bryan, Texas.... when he was in the military, where Ed Clark met him under his command..


Contact Martin Shackleford, he is on the alts.his email ad is readily available on there just open a post.... of his.... B)

He may be able to help you, this is a report from him on the 96 COPA meeting..

"" Informally, I was told that a former FBI official said upper level FBI officials believed LBJ was involved; Dan Rather was a boyhood friend of LBJ aide Cliff Carter (Dan Alcorn). ""

Dan Alcorn is a well connected Washington Lawyer..

Thanks, Bernice. That is most curious. The implications of that are interesting indeed. It sure makes one ponder the early Dan Rather viewing of the Zapruder film and his comment about JFK being violently thrusted forward.

Could Carter have been pushing his buttons?

Wonder if there is any connection from Rather to Ed Clark...?

Then again we do not know, what version of the Zapruder that Rather
actually saw, the early viewers mention about the terrible scenes of the
head shots, but neglect to address what else is seen...in relation to all
so, we are simply left ,imo ,with more questions...? As usual...

Thanks.....B :rolleyes:
