  1. 'UFO' connections to the JFK Assassination

    I would like to know anything anyone has on a JS Martin of Oak Cliff, Texas, who lived there in 1963. He may provide some more links and answers. No one seems to have done much by way of figuring out the link between NASA and Reilly Coffee either. Why? Allende's letter to Jessup was apparently written from the Turner Hotel in Gainesville, Texas. See, http://windmill-slayer.tripod.com/aliascar...llende/id1.html
  2. James Jesus Angleton

    While James Jesus Angleton was, now doubt an interesting character, is it possible that the more interesting story begins with "the sins of the father"--James Hugh Angleton? Much has been written about JJ, but little about his father who apparently got him into the business. Of what has been written about James Hugh Angleton, there appears to be some conflict. Will the real James Hugh Angleton and Carmen Mercedes Moreno Angleton please step forward? In Jefferson Morley's Our Man in Mexico: Winston Scott and the Hidden History of the CIA, Morley states, in relevant part, "[James Jesus Angleton's] grandfather had founded National Cash Register Company, whose machines rang up the surpluses of the American Dream. His father, Hugh Angleton, built NCR into a multinational corporation." Morley, Jefferson Michael Holzman, however, describes Hugh Angleton as beginning "his business career ina Horatio Alger vein. There are stories of muleback cash register deliveries to isolated fronteir towns, and with the boom and the modernization of the 1920s--a gradual rise through the National Cash Register Company ranks, first to sales manager and then to a vice presidency for international operations in Dayton (ca. 1927). [end note omitted] In 1933 he went to Italy to inspect the NCR operations there, liked what he saw, and--in lieu of a promotion--bought the Italian franchise from the company, moving his family to Milan in December 1933, when their eldest son was sixteen ." Holzman, Michael. James Jesus Angleton, The CIA, & The Craft of Counterintelligence (University of Massachusetts Press Amherst 2008) p. 9. Tom Mangold describes much of the same beginning for Hugh Angleton in Cold Warrior at page 31 of that book. Additionally, there appears to be some varying accounts of James Jesus Angleton's mother, and what her family background was. For example, quoting Cicely Angleton, Tom Mangold states that his grandmother, "lived in poverty." Mangold, Cold Warrior, p. 32 Mangold further states that his mother "had no schooling." Mangold, Cold Warrior, p. 32 In an article written comparing the movie The Good Shepard to the real life of James Jesus Angleton, author Pete Earley describes his mother as belonging "to an aristocratic Mexican family." see, http://www.trutv.com/library/crime/terrori...shepherd/4.html Why all of the discrepancies in this man who was the father of one of the world's most [in]famous spies? Are these discrepancies of Hugh Angleton's own making, or is this the JJ we all know and love playing the game that he played so well?
  3. Tesla

    In the book Wizard—The Life and Times of Nikola Tesla—Biography of a Genius by Marc J. Seifer, the author states the following: On January 8, [1943] Abraham N. Spanel, the fort-two-year-old president of the International Latex Corporation of Dover, Delaware (now Playtex), who was residing in New York City, had called FBI agents Fredrich Cornels to discuss Tesla’s death-ray experiments. As the inventor had just died, Spanel feared that Kosanovic would obtain the pertinent papers and pass them to the Soviets. Spanel had already begun to make a name for himself in media and military circles by having invented floating pontoon stretchers for soldiers wounded in amphibious landings and by turning back the million-dollar profits to the government for the war effort. Born in Odessa in 1901, Spanel would later became [sic] a vociferous anti-Communist who spent upward of $8 million throughout the 1940s and 1950s “buying space in the United States press to reprint articles that would contribute to an understanding of world problems.” Having fled to France in 1905 to escape the anti-Semitic pogroms [sic] of Russia with his family as a child, Spanel, at the age of seven, came to the United States in 1908. A graduate of the University of Rochester, Spanel had invented electrical appliances and pneumatic products in the early 1920s before starting the International Latex Corporation in 1929. Realizing the potential importance of the Tesla invention in the “democratic” fight for world supremacy, Spanel had contacted Dr. D. Lozado, adviser to Vice President Wallace, and Mr. Bopkin of the Department of Justice. Bopkin agreed to contact J. Edgar Hoover regarding the affair, and Lozado conferred with Wallace and perhaps even FDR, calling Spanel back shortly after their conversation to convey that the government was “vitally interested in Tesla’s papers.” Spanel had also contacted one Boyce Fitzgerald, whom the FBI had pegged as “an electrical engineer who was a protégé of Tesla’s,” who had also called Cornels. Haaving met Fitzgerald at an engineering meeting a few years earlier, Spanel became highly interested in the Tesla weapon, possibly hoping to become involved in a profitable business developing the death-beam device for the U.S. military. Seifer, Marc J. Wizard. pp. 448-449. Playtex's website, the successor to International Latex, states, in pertinent part, regarding its history: The history of Playtex begins in America. Not with bras and girdles as might be expected, but with vacuum sweepers. The company was founded by Abraham Nathaniel Spanel. He used latex in the production of his products and, with this interest toward supplying households and especially women, with innovative goods, a host of products were produced, e.g. bathing caps, aprons, baby pants and girdles. 1933 Prototype of "Living Girdle" was manufactured. A one-piece rubber foundation garment you sprinkled with talc and rolled on - sold in a tube. Good-bye to whalebone and combrinc. The first use of rubber in women's underwear was to prove more liberating to women's lives than bra burning in the 70's. During the war the company supplied the government with latex for defense equipment such as stretchers, life-rafts, life jackets and parachutes. After the war, the company resumed it's emphasis on women's products and magazines and billboards across America hailed the wonders of the 'Living Girdle'. The one and only girdle, with miracle latex on the outside and kitten-soft fabric on the inside. The new invisible Playtex girdle gave millions of women new, slimmed, trimmed down figures. http://www.playtex.co.za/about.aspx Not much appears to be available on Spanel. Why was an entrepreneur in the latex industry so interested in Tesla?
