Now flashing forward to 1963, Lee behaved as he did in front of Marina, and as a consequence, she came to believe --despite her initial disbelief--that Lee was indeed Kennedy's assassin. Here, from the New York Times of January 8, 1964, is what she said, in an interview with reporter Jack Langguth, which ran under the headline: "Oswald's Widow Now Reported Convinced of Husband's Guilt."

 

Mrs. Lee H. Oswald is convinced that her husband assassinated President Kennedy, her business adviser said today. James H. Martin, the adviser, said her conviction was so strong that even if a jury could find Oswald not guilty her opinion would be unchanged.  . . . “She’s convinced that he’s guilty, even though she cared for him.”

 

 

 

So she was cleverly disguised as her own business manager when this interview took place... the cunning wench... 

 

Tell us, David, did it by any chance take place in a hollow plastic tree?

I think Greg was being humorous about the Baker book.  The shame is that Kris Millegan is a good guy.  

 

Good pick up, Jim. And yeah... Kris does seem like a nice guy. I don't think he necessarily believes JVB, I think he just believes people have a right to make up their own minds about it. 

 

 

 I spoke with Kris Millegan on the phone last year and he told me that he believed Judyth Vary Baker was the real deal and in fact Lee Harvey Oswald's girlfriend and he believes her story.

 

So maybe you ought to ask Kris Millegan before you put words in his mouth.

 

As me - I believe Judyth Vary Baker, but I do not believe everything she says especially about Oswald being innocent. I do know Ed Tatro, a very well seasoned and credible JFK researcher, believes her story and is a good friend of Baker's.

 

I believe 90% of her story.

 

If you want to talk about people putting words in the mouths of others, let's talk about Dalek's efforts with Gamarekian. 

 

If you want to talk about what I said, then do try and get it right. I said he doesn't "necessarily" believe JVB and that he believes everyone has a right to make up their own minds about it.

 

In other words, I don't know whether he believes her or not, but that as a general rule of thumb, he gives people the opportunity to put their case and let readers decide.

 

I based this opinion on what what Milligan said in his Publisher's Weekly interview:

 

Millegan also remarks that “there’s a lot of history out there we haven’t been told. As one of my authors says, ‘Sometimes you aren’t in a position to tell history and all you can do is take notes.’ We’ve been presenting the notes of a lot of people. These stories have to be discussed, even if it’s only to say ‘this is crazy and completely wrong.’” [emphasis added]

 

As for what you believe, I could care less except you spread it all over the internet giving us a ll a bad rep. I urge you once again to put an axe through your computer.

You'd probably make more money self-publishing it through Createspace/Amazon and putting up a $9.99 Kindle version with blurbs and quotes from a few other well-known researchers.  With the volume of new JFK related volumes coming out across the next 6 months I suspect a good number of the sales leading up to November will be Kindle versions, and with an attractive cover and some advance critic review quotes you could compete directly with the volumes that had bigger budgets.  Either way please don't be discouraged Greg and I'm hoping I get to purchase and read your magnum opus sooner rather than later.

 

I agree with Jim that the Nolan book looks interesting.  i just hope it lives up to its premise.

Thanks Anthony. I have nothing against money, but it's a secondary issue. Have spent 13 years providing new information on forums, and though some of it has been picked up and made its way into some books, it hasn't turned the case around. It just slowly disappears to page 1,023. I mean, when you can demonstrate that there was a CIA agent in the office where Oswald was allegedly trying to renounce US citizenship to the person who recruited the agent, and there is a collective shrug, when you point out that John Pic worked for the intelligence service of the Coast Guard which forced more workers out of jobs under spurious charges of being subversives than any other cold war program or subcommittee, and all you get is someone effectively saying it's no big deal, when you show that Ruth Paine's divorce lawyer was a pal of LBJ and had once been an assistant DA under Wade, and her husband was part of the DCLU delegation to visit Oswald, and that he had been rejected for intelligence work during WWII - something which he was allegedly bitter about - but then set up his divorce practice in the same building as the 112th MIG, and it barely raises an eyebrow... it's time to either wave the white flag and give up, or finish the job yourself. All of those things, I have posted about a number of times over a 10 year period. And all I hear are crickets. 

 

I did expect it was going to be difficult - especially since I have mainly been looking for an Australian publisher. In the back of mind, it's always been there that if all else fails, I can self-publish, It's a fair way off being complete and I won't pretend it's going to be perfect. I don't have the funds to traverse the globe conducting interviews and going through archives. What I will promise is a lot of new material and a few surprises in putting names to people otherwise unidentified in the 26 volumes. 

 

The Jorge Gaitan hit is the precedent for both Kennedy assassinations. The first chapter offers a solution to that case, and also identifies the hands of the CIA in the death of another Colombian politician. The second chapter identifies the Korean War as the starting point of Oswald's circuitous road to Dallas (even though he was not in the war himself). It also identifies the real reason for that war, and shows how the press prepped a nation to accept germ warfare experiments... and a germ warfare first strike.

 

But I digress... the point is, I'm hoping that by putting it all together in a neat package, with some marketing behind it, it may have a more meaningful impact... 

 

 

There is some great work being done by others, too, and the reward is.... not in seeing it advance the case as it should on merit, but having it pissed on by the usual suspects and their clones and sock puppets - many of whom are protected species. 

 

Late night posting, Anthony. If I sounded ungrateful for any support or for any advice, it was unintentional. Am going to give your advice serious consideration. It may well be the best option. Thanks mate.
