    Oswald was not in MC

    "the TWA 800 flight that exploded" Carlier, find us some accounts of other modern passenger jets that spontaneously "exploded" in mid-air, absent a bomb or missile.
  2. There were rumors that the Agency swindled cost overrun money out of Hughes during the Glomar Explorer construction. Less rumorous would be the notion that Highes built this thing not out of patriotism but in a bid to have government scrutiny removed from his enterprises.

    Now it can be told: Dag Hammarskjold

    If you watch that documentary I posted above, Hammarskjold's last writings express fear of assassination, and he wrote a will of sorts before flying to Ndola. Perhaps the cameras documenting his airfield departure on the so-called "midnight flight" were intended as an insurance policy.

    Marina ... pretty agent for LHO?

    Like that. The legend is that Marx was elevated to an econo-philosophical founding father at the interest of high profiteers who wanted competing systems to sell war materiel to. Among the supposed deceived masses, Communism would have been seen as a way to achieve modern society and destroy feudalism in Europe. No one counted on human weakness among the newly strengthened. And this just in: the rising backlash of Euro-fascism, supposedly also funded by.... Remembering also the legend that one of the Rothschilds made his fortune by knowing the outcome of Waterloo before the London Exchange did. Supposedly one messenger on fast horses and a fast Channel boat got to London ahead of the dispatches, allowing Rothschild an edge on other investor decisions.

    Marina ... pretty agent for LHO?

    “I don’t see the Cold War as authentic. Rather I view it as a cooperative effort to foist on both the American and Russian civilian populations an enormous military-Intelligence budget”. It's been suggested here on the Forum in the past, re: Salandria or or otherwise. Usually people point upward to international finance as the creator of competing economic-philosophical systems.

    multiple plots?

    One interesting idea in Salandria is that the military weaponized Fletcher Prouty against the CIA.

    How did Marina support herself and her daughters during the years after the Porter marriage?

    multiple plots?

    “So overwhelming and voluminous is the evidence of conspiracy provided for us by the government that we are compelled to conclude that if not the, at least a number of possible plots, were meant by the conspirators to be quasi-visible. The federal government has deluged us with evidence that cries out conspiracy.” ...Imagine if that's another reason that some people had to die, also.

    There's lots more DH material kicking around the net since this issue last came up on EF a couple years ago. Here's an older documentary that cites a different Bad Guy pilot, who of course hit the DH plane by accident. Very much worth seeing for its other charms:

    There are several worthwhile Guardian articles on the crash, if one pursues all the click-throughs. It seems that Europeans care about assassination of their leaders, even on the eve of Brexit. Book on the incident: https://guardianbookshop.com/who-killed-hammarskjold-503078.html And this just in: https://www.hurstpublishers.com/new-clues-to-1961-death-of-hammarskjold/

  13. Kennedy at Forrestal's grave, 1963 - this link Repaying old favors, Kennedy brought James Forrestal's son Mike into the NSC circle, under Bundy. Unfortunately, the younger Forrestal is accused by some of helping Lodge and Harriman do the famous weekend end-run around Kennedy's wishes for the Diem deposition in Vietnam.

    The Mind of JFK

    I mostly don't care to compare Mailer to JFK, Joe. I'm sure Kennedy was a better guy than me, also - though I like Mailer better than many people I know personally, and he was nice to me when I met him in Boston in about 1988. What I do say is that, throughout all the Mailer I've read, Mailer's opinion of Kennedy at the time, and over time, is more qualified than Ruha paints it, and in general Ruha paints Kennedy too sentimentally. DiEugenio writes about more germane and important things than whether Kennedy appreciated artists. Is Mailer a better writer when someone makes us think he thought the world of JFK? Like it or not, "Superman" was the liberal press Kennedy was getting on the eve of the election.
