  1. The Spartacus bio of Allen Dulles contains an error. "Allen Dulles, the son of a Presbyterian minister, and the brother of John Foster Dulles , was born in Washington in 1893....." http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/USAdullesA.htm Nope. Allen Dulles was born in Watertown, New York on April 7, 1893.
  2. Robert Caro's April 2, 2012, New Yorker article: Transition, Lyndon Johnson and the events in Dallas Abstract only. http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2012/04/02/120402fa_fact_caro Summary http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/03/26/robert-caro-s-new-yorker-essay-7-new-insights-into-lbj.html Peter Fokes, Toronto
  3. http://www.dallasobserver.com/2012-03-15/news/the-sixth-s-floor-s-message-to-history-just-hush-now/2/ Excerpt from article by Jim Schutze in the Dallas Observer News entitled: "The Sixth Floor's Message to History: Just Hush Now": "John Judge, an assassination historian in Washington, said to me last week: "A moment of silence that denies talking about his death on that day and certainly not talking about the historical truth behind it and the controversy is no longer a moment of silence. It's a perpetuation of silence." Judge said it doesn't matter that we can't see exactly who is behind
  4. Here's a snippet: beginning 52 minute mark of tape 1: Voice 1: "The body will be choppered to the Naval Medical Center at Bethesda. Over." Voice 2 "The body will be choppered or go by ambulance to the Naval Center?" Voice 1: "Will be choppered. Will be choppered." ..... Voice 1: "Say again, say again doctor." Voice 2: "The body is in a casket you know, and will have to be taken by ambulance, not by chopper." Voice 1: "Alright I'll tell Capt Shepard that." ..... General Clifton: "We do not want a helicopter for Bethesda Medical Center. We do want an ambulance and a ground return fro

  6. I don't think the two are related. IMHO. Kathy C Oh those guys! They look like Operation Phoenix guys Colby (William) and Milberg (Warren). Or maybe their cousins! Cheers PF
  7. I have no opinion on whether or not it "was" the same umbrella, but .... IF it was, and IF I had been the person in Dealey Plaza pumping it up and down in protest the moment JFK was assassinated, then I "would" have kept it to my dying day. Perhaps, an heir would have had the pleasure of selling said umbrella at an auction for an enormous sum ... That umbrella would have been a precious keepsake for me. No doubt about it. Umbrellas are cheap. Where is THAT umbrella today anyway? Regards,
  8. John McAdams wrote: http://www.jfkassassinationforum.com/index.php/topic,5417.0.html At least as good as the Badgeman analysis. But maybe no better. Peter Fokes writes: But that link leads to a page that shows the enhanced sniper nest man resembles Tan Jacket Man from the Hughes film, not Oswald. Does the enhanced sniper nest man really resemble the Tan Jacket Man?
  9. If you buy the eBook version, you will not only "read" the book but also "view" a 13-minute film. However, as Amazon notes, "Audio/Video content only available for iPads, iPhones, and iPod Touch devices." From Amazon: "This Enhanced eBook Edition contains a 13-minute film, written and narrated by Stephen King and enhanced with historic footage from CBS News, that will take you back—as King’s novel does—to Kennedy era America." No DVD accompanies the hardback edition .... I presume. Anyone going to be "reviewing" the book after "readviewing" it? hehe ....
  10. Linda, can you please provide a link to any time card bearing the initials "JB" as you reference above? To my knowledge, and I did study the cards and was involved in a thread discussing them 2 or 3 years ago, there is NO Oswald time card that bears the initials "JB." His time cards bear various initials ... expected practice in companies where cards were often looked over, hours tallied by hand, and initialed. A few of Oswald's time cards bear what looks like a rather unique "J." Where do you see a "JB" on any card? Researchers have produced many documents that are in direct conflict wit
  11. Epstein's released another E-Book, and this one appears to be considerably shorter than his Killing Castro effort. (Did not spend any schekels to download them.) James Jesus Angleton: Was He Right? An EJE Original [Kindle Edition] <quote off> A new biography of James Jesus Angleton by Edward Jay Epstein that asks the question: was he right after all? Angleton was the legendary head of CIA counterintelligence during most of the Cold War.. In May 1987, in one of his last phone calls, he told Dick Cheney, who was then a member of the House Intelligence Committee, that he needed to tell h
  12. I never understood either Me neither,(fornit some fornus) Dean! I have never read one of King's books. I prefer "literature." I just re-read Mrs. Dalloway, and some short stories of Flannery O'Connor. At the moment I am reading John McAdams book, JFK Assassination Logic. It is an enjoyable read especially if you do not feel threatened by an intelligent fellow who is able to make strong arguments in support of the Warren Commission. I am also reading Enduring Violence: Ladino Women's Lives in Guatemala by Cecilia Menjivar. I have commented elsewhere that McAdams is a courteous cri
  13. For some background on the permutations of this book, see: Beware: The Douglas/Janney/Simkin Silver Bullets By James DiEugenio http://www.ctka.net/djm.html PF I'd like to hear John Simkin's view of these events, if he can put it into fewer words. BK I dealt with all this on 10th October 2007: http://educationforum.ipbhost.com/index.php?showtopic=11208 Thank you for drawing my attention to the previous thread. But Janney's "new" book will soon be arriving with -- if you are correct - new interviews. So the debate is ongoing. As Bill Kelly suggests, there is no harm in "re
