    One Question re: Two Oswalds

    Michael, And I absolutely love it when Peter Dale Scott tells John Newman (to James DiEugenio's great mortification, no doubt) that John has just now convinced him (Peter) that Nosenko was a false defector! -- TG

    Has Sandy Larsen Been Banned?

    I agree. I guess I missed it. -- TG

    One Question re: Two Oswalds

    David, Here's a little something for your followers to consider. http://www.russianbooks.org/oswald/discrep.htm (Do try to be nice, now.) -- TG

    A Question For James Gordon

    Bumped for Vanessa Loney. If Castro or Khrushchev did it, what kind of evidence should we expect to find, Vanessa? Neither the Cuban nor the Russian government is subject to the Freedom of Information Act, right? And how much evidence? Oodles and gobs? Isn't it interesting that false defector Yurily Nosenko said KGB didn't even interview Oswald in the USSR ("because Oswald looked so crazy and dangerous"), when in fact they interviewed him twice (according to John Newman)? Regardless, how are we to explain the fact that Silvia Duran told the Mexican authorities right after the assassination that the "Oswald" she'd dealt with was short (she was only 5' 3.5", herself), blond-haired, and blue-eyed, which not only described 5' 7" Nikolai Leonov, but dovetailed perfectly with Eusebio Azcue's even more Leonov-like 1978 description, i.e., that "Oswald" was about 35 years old, blond-haired, skinny, very thin-faced, and was wearing a suit (as KGB officer Leonov did every workday as Third Secretary at the Soviet Embassy)? And how could it be that in the 1990s, the above-mentioned Nikolai Leonov said that HE had met ONE-ON-ONE with the emotional, revolver-packin' Oswald at the Soviet Embassy on SUNDAY, September 29, 1963? -- TG
  5. Paul, It seems to me that you're preaching to a choir of one, here. -- TG
  6. What "indications" are there that your Russian-speaking Hungarian, "Harvey," and his "caretaker mother" moved to my hometown of San Diego in 1955? -- TG

    A Question For James Gordon

    Vanessa, I'm saying that Oswald was a CIA asset but had nothing to with the assassination? Really? I'm saying that? In case you're wondering, I now believe that Oswald (based on what my hero, Tennent H. Bagley, *allegedly* told Malcolm Blunt) must have been a witting false detector to the USSR in 1959, but I fail to see how that in-and-of-itself has any bearing on Oswald's guilt or innocence in the JFK assassination, or how it, in-and-of-itself, implicates the CIA or any members thereof in same. Ditto regarding Oswald's probably-CIA/FBI sponsored FPCC activities. Perhaps you could explain it to me? PS If you're thinking Mexico City, it's my opinion that all we can be sure of there is that Oswald was telephonically impersonated twice in that city (and perhaps once physically at the Cuban consulate by a short, 30-ish, blond-haired, blue-eyed, very thin-faced, suit-wearing man), but probably not impersonated by anyone at all (not even himself!) at the Soviet one. -- TG
  8. Sandy, May I demonstrate something? Above, you wrote the phrase "individual believing," rather than the correct, "individual's believing." Now, how could you, a highly intelligent and highly educated, born-in-America guy, get that sort of grammar wrong on a fairly consistent basis (iirc), but a dude who was born in Hungary (and who didn't start learning English until he was about ten years old, and had already learned the very un-English languages of Hungarian and Russian) could? -- TG

    The KGB and the JFK case

    Tom Graves replied: Pamela, It's evident that you haven't read Tennent H. Bagley's 35-page (2015 PDF) "Ghosts of the Spy Wars," much less his 2007 book, "Spy Wars." Both are free to read on the Internet. Or maybe you have, and you think Bagley's a l-i-a-r? -- TG PS Are you aware that, according to Bagley, he and CIA psychologist John Gittinger both witnessed Nosenko, near the "breaking point" twice, mutter to himself, "I can't tell them the truth, I can't tell them the truth ..."? As though he'd been KGB "MKULTRAed" before he was sent here? My reply to James DiEugenio: James, Have you watched this, yet? You're in it, you know. Edited by Admin. Bumping three times on two different threads in 12 hours against the rules. Member dealt with. My favorite part is when Peter Dale Scott turns to John Newman near the end and says "You've just now convinced me that Nosenko was a false defector." (Or words to that effect.) -- TG

    CIA/KGB combo?

    James, Did you read my heavily edited and highly informative post? Would you like to comment on its substance? (Side question: Were you severely disappointed at John Newman's recent presentation in San Francisco when Peter Dale Scott turned to him near the end and told John that he (John) had just convinced him that Yuri Nosenko was a false defector, after all? I mean, I mean, I mean .... is that why you couldn't bring yourself to clap for John after he'd finished? (Nice "cover job," by the way. Not to worry, though. I'll just wait the mandatory 24 hours and "bump" it again, but probably without editing it nearly as much as I did this time.) -- TG

    Why wasn’t “Oswald” followed in Mexico?

    David, Not if he was sent there as part of a mole hunt, or to try to recruit a Ruskie. But then, again, I'm not so sure he went to Mexico City. -- TG

    If Oswald Was "Prayer Man" ...

    Bart, Did you ever find Gloria Calvery in the Z-Film or Couch-Darnell? You do realize, don't you, that Karen Westbrook was obviously very, very confused when she recently ... "identified," ... from behind and 55 years after the fact ... "herself" (actually Sharon Simmons), ... "Gloria Calvery" (actually Gloria Jeanne Holt), ... and "... maybe Carol Reed" (actually self-described Native American, Stella Mae Jacob) in the Z-Film? Laughing Out Loud, -- TG

    If Oswald Was "Prayer Man" ...

    Bart, Is that all you got? Do you really think Sarah Stanton was standing behind 6' 1" Buell Wesley Frazier, you know, so that she wouldn't be able to see the motorcade? Wouldn't it have made more sense for her to stand between Frazier and "Prayer Man"? (That is, of course, unless she was "Prayer Man"?) If Sarah Stanton was standing behind Buell Wesley Frazier, and if she was the "Sarah" with whom Frazier had spoken, up there on the landing a few seconds after the assassination, wouldn't he have said in his 2013 interview that he had "turned" around" to speak with her, rather than "turned" to speak with her? -- TG
