    Political Science and History I am very proud to have met Robert F. Kennnedy in April, 1968. when he came to my hometown of Whitesburg, Ky.during his presidential campaign. I have been active in local politics most of my adult life, having been elected to public office twice.

  1. Right on all points, Jim. Johnson was :biting at the bit" to get that finished. People working there have since written about the scurrying to put the final report together. Also, a point that sticks out with me, in my memory, was that Dulles slept through a great deal of the time that he was in the room. From that I had drawn a picture of an older man that may have not necessarily been in touch, but this interview, with his darting eyes, and quick responses points me back to the arguments that have been made of how Dulles was sitting over the hearings with very little interest as to what evidence was brought in front of them, as he was going to have the report written the way he wanted it anyway!
  2. To what extent Oswald was involved, as Pamela indicates, cannot be fully known, but I concur that had he been watched, or better yet, brought in for questioning, we could very well have had a different outcome on that day. As everyone here know, the feelings on Oswald's involvement cover the whole spectrum, from patsy to shooter. I do not think that we can patently say that he had nothing to do with the assassination.
  3. The fact that Hosty did not take his job seriously enough to, at least, verify where Oswald was on November 22, 1963 says that it is possible to place the blame for the assassination squarely at his feet!
  4. “I told the FBI what I had heard [two shots from behind the grassy knoll fence], but they said it couldn’t have happened that way and that I must have been imagining things. So I testified the way they wanted me to. I just didn’t want to stir up any more pain and trouble for the family.”– Kennedy aide Kenneth O’Donnell, quoted by House Speaker Thomas P. “Tip” O’Neill Jr. in “Man of the House,” p. 178. O’Donnell was riding in the Secret Service follow-up car with Dave Powers, who was present and told O’Neill he had the same recollection. (this is a post made by Goban Saor on the 'Reopen the Kennedy Case' forum)
  5. Abraham Lincoln was quoted during the height of the civil war , at a cabinet meeting, saying; “Gentlemen, why don’t you laugh? With the fearful strain that is upon me night and day, if I did not laugh I should die, and you need this medicine as much as I do.”
  6. I am at a loss as to why Lisa would ascertain that Sirhan was shooting blanks. There were 5 other people shot along with Bobby Kennedy!
  7. I also don't believe that Hoover and the FBI would have immediately jumped in of their own volition and almost immediately start covering up a crime that they didn't know the truth about. Denny Zartman. That has always been my problem with the whole case. It just never made sense to me that people in powerful positions would start creating the 'single shooter' story before they had done any investigation. Hoover was talking to Johnson on the phone, literally hours after the assassination, saying it was this man, Oswald. At the same time, many people in Dealey Plaza were telling the police they saw smoke in the trees of the grassy knoll, plus Senator Yarborough said he smelled gunpowder( this at ground level). So, without question, the people that needed to know, knew!!
  8. The author was asked what kind of feedback did he receive from people in the audience ,and his answer was the same as my reaction; SILENCE! I am blown away by this matter of fact, no holds barred, step by step description of the assassination of John F. Kennedy. I certainly look forward to what will be posted about this book on this forum.
  9. James, I like the idea of auto pay as well. I am guilty of forgetting to pay on time, occasionally. If you can set that up through credit card payments, I believe that will solve our problems. I think that most will agree that with me, because we won't have to remember it each month. Whatever you come up with, I will try to send something each month. This is a wonderful forum and it would be a terrible loss of valuable information, as well as the opportunity to talk with like minded individuals, if it had to close. I started on Lancer back in the day, and have been here for years. In my opinion, it is the premiere forum on JFK, as well as many other subjects!
  10. Mr. Jenkins says he saw a hole in the back of the head, with brains, skull and skin gone, seemingly at the same place the Parkland doctors said it was located!
  11. Just as he did with the blockade during the missle crisis, President Kennedy would have also had those words of wisdom," do not fight a land war in Asia" in the back of his mind and the Unites States would not have put large numbers of troops in Viet Nam. We have the president on tape with Walter Cronkite, saying that it is their (the Vietnamese) war. The U. S. can help them, but in the end, they have to fight it. (paraphrasing). There would not have been a Viet Nam war if John F. Kennedy had lived!!
