    I missed your jab about fiction, No, i have never written any fiction and I think you need to remove that accusation. I didn't talk to the man I interrogated him and remember they would have never let me do a second tour at Homicide i they had not been happy with my performance the first time. I don't lurk. I get a notification in my email and then I determine whether a response is needed. Most time it isn't. And if you had read one of my books you would have seen the amount of 1st hand information I require to include to an ACTUAL shooting in my data base and I was a member of the FBI's 1st wound ballistic work shop held as a result of the FBI gunfight in Miami. Oh and finally, I spent a lot of time in the morgue and I asked a lot of questions at autopsies.

    I was assigned on a sniper detail to protect Teddy Kennedy and George McGovern. The SS had not bothered to get keys for where we were to be located and we ended up on the roof of a porno theater. You can talk angles and location all the day long but the world is a messy place AND it you'd actually read one of my books you'd find they're was significant space spent of rifle and shotguns results

    Yes I am fully confident these are the right guys. I've only met the military sniper once. Meeting was setup by a CIA bud. We met at the Vietnam Memorial and he was quite bitter about JFK. I was assigned to Detroit Homicide twice and I interrogated him carefully and for several hours and I sure he is the real deal. I quizzed him on sniper stuff too since I had been the original training Sgt for the SWAT Team in Detroit. Folks need to understand that once I've satisfied myself I move on to other things. I wrote three best selling books on ammunition. People wonder why there hasn't been a 4th book. It's simple as i answered all the questions I had and am now working on a different project. k

    There was no guarantee where they could setup. Even the military sniper in Dal Tex could have found his proposed shooting spot occupied. And I'd suggest those labeling shots as "hard" or "easy" have had to shoot at a human being.

    Chasing Our Tails?

    It seems to be at the root of a conspiracy would be the desire to go uncovered. When you start looking at who could control the route, the evidence, the autopsy, and any federal investigations you're far beyond a bunch of red necks burning crosses or even wealthy citizens outside the federal government. We may salivate on the Mafia or the radical right but it doesn't bare close scrutiny. Having known a number of feds their mantra is don't embarrass the bureau or the agency. Nor would they be content in such a case to hook up with folks who would rat them out. And I continually see folks advocating a conspiracy the size of Maine. It would not only be unworkable but unnecessary. When I was a trainer at NNSA we table toped scenarios where we could basically shut the country down with less than 50 people. Our bosses got so alarmed they classified the whole project!

    Ever Wonder

    If maybe there was more than one team operating independently in Dealy Plaza? Might explain some of the conflicting observations by witnesses. I'm aware of an assassination plan in Africa where the Special Air Service realized they were across the street from some South African Special Ops folks that were there to assassinate the same leader and so both groups left without taking any action.

    JM Wave and a military sniper brought in from Vietnam and two of the three died of old age, in bed. The 3rd is still alive far I know.

    JM Wave. Israel would only be a distant memory had they moved against the US in such a fashion.

    Witnesses

    No, Skippy&Cupcake, all witnesses are not equal and closer is not necessarily better. There were a couple of combat veterans in Dealy Plaza and I consider their testimony important. If you're secret service agent who can't differentiate between fire works and rifle shots perhaps a career change might be a splendid idea. The Dr's in Parkland ER I consider extremely valid as they saw gun shot wound on a daily basis. Bethesda? Maybe, if their goal had been the truth. Bud sadly they were not.

    I tried very hard to get Rex to tape his recollections in OSS and give them to his son to be published after his death, but he refused. He once showed me a key and offered to let me borrow it and to go to certain floor in the Empire State Bldg. and to a certain room and I could read all sorts of foreign intel files that were written in English. I declined not cause I did not believe him but because of a concern I might meet some one in that room who'd "assist" me in committing suicide by jumping from a high window there.

    A bud who had served in the OSS, Rex Applegate, told me more than once that the old China hands in OSS were the most dangerous and untrustworthy.

    Perhaps that it would be wise to recall that people who are driven by a cause may be the most dangerous people to deal with. I was told that the three shooters and for that matter the spotters all lived to a ripe old age, and that two of the shooters died in the last two years. I'm personally convinced that Angleton managed it but I'm not so sure that he was not Philby's knowing and cooperative source in US intelligence so perhaps we're back to where we started ,sort of

    It's so easy and gratifying to make assumptions that confirm our core beliefs but without evidence we're simply whistling pass the grave yard

    So now we're going to accept the word of a Nazi? And what's fixation on French assassins? This country is and has been full of skilled rifle men.

    Rifle skills on the range are fine, but I suggest that shooting at people and I speak from personal experience here is a whole different thing.

    None of the above has been proven to my satisfaction and people can surmise all they want to, but I don't see the wisdom of involving people with checkered pasts who have all sorts of other crimes hanging over their head. When I mean small and tight, I mean less than 30 and none of them politicians who would sell their mothers into a whore house if it was to their benefit.

    People keep looking for a conspiracy the size of the population of a major city. I'm convinced it was small and tight.

    I learned over 65 years ago the real danger of ego, Perhaps if all those who believe there was a conspiracy could bite their tongues and we could accomplish something. If the final answer is that I was wrong and it was done by some one else that would be fine by me.

    Again once we know the why the who is easier and less critical than the why.

    The reason that I never named anyone should be for obvious reasons. Shooters from JM Wave? Gee, I wonder who hired them? And who had the horse power to move a military sniper from South East Asia and then get him back? About as hard to solve as an episode from "Murder She Wrote".

    Oswald's Rifle Skills?

    We could debate Oswald's skill with any sort of firearm, but the reality is that he was a Marine when great emphasis was on shooting skills AND He was trained on the M-1 Garand, a .30 caliber semiautomatic rifle that held 8 rounds without a reload. If his goal was to assassinate the president he could have stolen an M-1 Garand if he lacked the funds to buy one.Semi auto means he could launch 8 rounds quickly from a very accurate rifle. I have one and agree with George Patton that it was a superb battle rifle. Remember Oswald was not stupid or crazy.

    People can ID whoever they want but until they can offer evidence of the rifle skills needed to hit the president in moving its all tactical flatulence.
