  1. And the fact that Joshua Brown had been previously shot in another bad drug deal really leans the suspicion angle towards his death being a bad drug deal killing versus something more retaliatory regards his Amber Guyger court case testimony.. You may be right. Though I knew a president who got killed, and people said it was retaliation over some Caribbean misadventure of his. Others said that that plot got co-opted by his internal enemies.
  2. Congratulations Jim. Look forward to seeing it.
  3. My feeling is that this is not being addressed because the attitude toward Blacks, and all civilians, comes from the attitude of trainers who are above local police forces. Plus idiocy, fear and privilege.
  4. Apparently all the usual suspects are Black: more horror in Texas today -- https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2019/10/atatiana-jefferson-white-cop-fort-worth-killed-black-woman-insider-own-home.html
  5. I can get non-conspiracy blather on any street corner. Why would I come here for it? I wish they still had store windows full of TVs playing day and night. I could stand there drooling like a feeb over the non-conspiracy news.
  6. Part of it may have been that the FBI had documents available showing that Marcello had entered the US illegally through Guatemala, and so could be swiftly deported there, But I agree - why do it if Marcello did not compel the DOJ's attention? Plus it was a shortsighted move by RFK, since Marcello was, after a little inconvenience, returned to the US by his or his peers' soldiers, and his operation was not appreciably dismantled in his absence.
  7. From my post at the beginning. The thing to remember about Nagell is that he'd been burnt many times. that he felt used and undercompensated by the government even before the JFKA, and that he responded to absurd, murderous situations with a trickster's absurdist humor. He was like a character out of Catch-22 come to life. (You can see all these aspects of Nagell, plus his intolerance for corruption, in the several document batches Malcolm and Bart have put up.) To Nagell, a journalist like Dick Russell, who was in those years just developing a political stance against conspiracy, may have seemed to be either one more con-job put upon him, or one more dead-end outlet for his experiences. Nagell had been through Garrison and Richard Popkin with little profit to him. I don't fault him for wanting to profit: he played a game of Chicken with the government and the intelligence services to gain minimal financial support, and have access to his kids again. He was nearly killed more than once for this. The real test for Nagell would have been an appearance before the ARRB, which Dick Russell helped to arrange. Had he appeared, we would have more knowledge of the JFKA, and a better sense of closure on Nagell's character. With all the problems negotiating Nagell's obscurities, I still give Nagell's revelations the great benefit of the doubt.
  8. Rich: From at least 11/22/1963 onward, we haven't lived in a true republic, much less a true democracy. Clear now, OK?
  9. Pages 157-164 in the document file Bart posted above contain an interesting variant on Nagell's cryptic letter to "Verdestein"/Arthur Greenstein.
  10. Russell was close to Nagell, but seems to have never asked. All we know is that Nagell had a tape of Oswald meeting with anti-Castro Cubans and ostensibly discussing the JFKA; the KGB wanted Nagell to kill Oswald; and Nagell wrote about it to Hoover at FBI. What's missing in the Nagell story is Oswald's purposes, which Nagell seems not to have told Jim Garrison, either.
  11. You'll find the second edition a much better read. The unanswered questions though, are who was Oswald and what was his involvement in the assassination? It would be great if Dick Russell took a stand on those issues. Thanks for the new docs, Malcolm and Bart.
  12. Is the following name or pseudonym from Weisberg, chapter 21, useful to anybody researching Farewell America? That book, by the French counterpart of the CIA, known by its initials SDECE and pronounced sih-dick, was masterminded by the French spook who used, among other names, that of Herve Lamarre. His name on the book when it was published is "James Hepburn".
  13. Just caught up with Shane O'Sullivan's documentary RFK Must Die, and the hypnosis session with Dr. Bernard Diamond is full of leading statements reinforcing what Sirhan supposedly said about the assassination before police hypnosis. Persons interested in MKULTRA should also investigate ARTICHOKE, the CIA's programmed assassin effort.
