  1. May 20, 1967 letter from Shirley Martin to Jim Garrison re Hugh Aynesworth: http://jfk.hood.edu/...ugh/Item 01.pdf
  2. From The World Socialist Web Site: Britain's involvement in assassination of Congo's Lumumba confirmed by Jean Shaoul April 18, 2013 A senior British politician has revealed Britain’s involvement in the 1961 assassination of Patrice Lumumba, the Congo’s first prime minister. The leader of the Congolese independence struggle from Belgium was brutally murdered just seven months after taking office on the direct orders of the US and Belgium. Britain, whose involvement had long been suspected, also had a hand in it... Article: http://www.wsws.org/...8/lumu-a18.html

  4. Living History Series: Buell Wesley Frazier Saturday, Jul 13 2:00p to 3:00p The Sixth Floor Museum Dallas, TX The Living History series links the past to the present through individuals who witnessed the assassination of President John F. Kennedy or other historic events of the 1960s. An employee of the Texas School Book Depository, Frazier occasionally drove Lee Harvey Oswald to work, including Nov. 22, 1963. Frazier witnessed the assassination and was extensively questioned by Dallas investigators. http://listings.dall...-wesley-frazier

  6. From the Irving Heritage Society website: The next General Meeting will be on Wednesday, March 27, at the Irving Central Library Auditorium. The general membership meeting will begin at 6:45PM followed by a special program, “Remembrances of November 22 – the Irving Connection.” Speakers include former Irving resident Buell Frazier, who worked with Lee Harvey Oswald at the Texas School Book Depository, and gave him a ride to work on 11/22/63. The public is invited to attend the meeting. http://www.irvingheritage.com/
  7. Unfortunately, the pathologists were never subjected to the rigors of cross-examination that would have occurred in a court of law. The exception was Finck in New Orleans. And had Oswald lived to face trial the testimony of the Parkland witnesses, as Pat refers to them, would have been crucial. In a 1966 letter he sent to both Dr Boswell and Dr Humes, Harold Weisberg wrote: But I do want you to know that among the things I say and prove in it is that the President got an autopsy unworthy of a Bowery bum. (emphasis added) So damn true. http://jfk.hood.edu/...nce/Item 01.pdf
  8. Martin, the distinction is this: If RFK made those remarks to an audience of students at SFS College, it would have been recorded and widely reported, which it was not. That is the basis for much of DSL's argument. If instead the alleged remark was made to "several students," it is much less likely that an audio recording was made or that the remark would have been widely reported. I don't think anyone is disputing that the remark is likely apocryphal. But at the very least, it would be interesting to know the provenance of the allegation. That might be where Tom Miller comes in. On th
  9. I think most of the posters on this thread are simply trying to track down the original source of what David Lifton refers to as an "urban legend." Certainly it was not John Davis, as DSL's 1994 Compuserve message implied. Lifton quoted Davis as writing in 1984 that those remarks were told to "an audience of students at San Fernando State College on June 3, 1968." Tom Miller's 1977 book stated that RFK made the exact same remarks "to several students at San Fernando State College, June 3, 1968." There is a subtle difference in the two claims. As Jim suggested and I noted, it could be a s
  10. http://www.tommillerbooks.com/ His research files for The Assassination Please Almanac have been archived. See Subseries 3: http://www.azarchive...=;brand=default Edited to add: I've been thinking about this since I looked at Tom Miller's book, but I hesitate in posting it because my memory is so vague. I really believe that I read a more detailed account of the student(s) that approached Robert Kennedy after he gave his speech. They had cornered RFK privately, because they were incredulous that he still supported the Warren Commission. It was written first person by the student that wa
  11. In my opinion, John Davis' book is just a useless distraction, unless he gave a source. I do not own Davis' book and although a lot of The Kennedys is reproduced at Google Books, the key page is missing. Maybe he did what a lot of authors do: Take something they read in another book and put it in theirs, using that book as their source, rather than going to the primary source. As was noted in another post, Tom Miller's The Assassination Please Almanac contained the exact quote. Miller's book was published in 1977. So that quote had been around for sixteen years before Davis' book. Miller d
  12. John Tilton was one bad man and a big-time player, in my opinion. Researcher Bill Simpich wrote: When Lee Harvey Oswald wrote his first letter to the Fair Play for Cuba Committee HQ in New York in April 1963, he asked for "forty or fifty" free copies of a 40 page pamphlet. In a remarkable turn of events many years later, the author of the pamphlets turned out to be holding a receipt for 45 of these pamphlets from the CIA Acquisitions Division. These pamphlets were mailed to Oswald by FPCC worker Victor Thomas Vicente. Vicente was a key informant for both the CIA and the FBI’s New York bran
