    I Was a Teenage JFK Conspiracy Freak

    And exactly how much evidence against Ferrie is being brought up in those discussions? I'll answer that one myself --- None.* * That is, after you've thrown out the lies of Perry Russo, as you must do if you want to arrive at something factual.

    I Was a Teenage JFK Conspiracy Freak

    From my webpage on Ferrie.... "I ask: If David Ferrie was a guilty plotter, do his known actions during the period of November 22-25, 1963, make any logical sense at all? I say they do not. [...] On February 18, 1967, four days before he died, Ferrie was interviewed in his apartment by Andrew Sciambra and Lou Ivon of the New Orleans District Attorney's office. At one point during the interview, Sciambra asked Ferrie, "Dave, who shot the President?" Ferrie's answer was: "Well, that's an interesting question and I've got my own thoughts about it." Quoting directly from Vincent Bugliosi's book, "Reclaiming History": "Ferrie then proceeded to sit up and draw a sketch of Dealey Plaza and the Texas School Book Depository Building and [per the memorandum of the interview supplied to Jim Garrison by Sciambra and Ivon] "went into a long spiel about the trajectory of bullets in relation to the height and distance." He then gave a "lecture on anatomy and pathology [and] named every bone in the human body and every hard and soft muscle area" and concluded that one bullet could not have caused all the damage the Warren Commission claimed it did." -- "Reclaiming History"; Page 1400 Now, I think a logical question to ask after reading the above paragraph is: Why would Ferrie, if he was guilty of being part of a conspiracy, have wanted to say ANYTHING at all of a derogatory nature about the Warren Commission's investigation (which was, after all, an investigation that ended with the determination that Oswald had acted alone in killing JFK)? When Ferrie told Sciambra and Ivon that, in essence, he didn't think the Single-Bullet Theory was true, that was pretty much the same thing as Ferrie saying a conspiracy did, in fact, exist in the murder of John Kennedy. And why would ONE OF THE CONSPIRATORS WHO HAD KENNEDY KILLED want to say anything at all (to Jim Garrison's investigators, no less!) of a negative or critical nature concerning the Warren Commission's "lone assassin" conclusion? In my opinion, that would have been a crazy and illogical thing for Ferrie to do IF Ferrie had really played a role in some kind of a plot to murder President Kennedy. But, since it's fairly obvious that there isn't a scrap of evidence to link David Ferrie to any JFK conspiracy plot, then Ferrie's anti-SBT comments that he made to Sciambra and Ivon in February 1967 do not really fall into the "crazy" or "illogical" categories at all. But they certainly would belong in those two categories if Ferrie had been guilty of conspiracy to murder John F. Kennedy." -- DVP; September 17, 2009 More: http://jfk-archives.blogspot.com/2010/09/david-ferrie.html

    JFK Secret Service Agent: hole in windshield of limo!

    The Warren Commission stopped short of saying they thought the windshield and chrome damage was positively caused by a fragment (or fragments) of the bullet which struck the President in the head, but such a conclusion can certainly be easily inferred by the totality of bullet evidence examined in the case and the text written on pages 77 and 558 of the Warren Report.... https://history-matters.com/archive/jfk/wc/wr/html/WCReport_0051a.htm https://history-matters.com/archive/jfk/wc/wr/html/WCReport_0291b.htm http://jfk-archives.blogspot.com/search?q=Windshield

    Has this been discussed?

    In November 2016, James Reston Jr. said: It's probably a reference to Lee Harvey Oswald's address book, which is Commission Exhibit No. 18.... https://history-matters.com/archive/jfk/wc/wcvols/wh16/html/WH_Vol16_0031a.htm There are several pages not photographed in CE18, and page 17 is one of the missing pages (which is the page that Reston says had LHO's "I Will Kill" list on it). But you'll notice that pages 8, 9, 10, and 11 are not there in CE18 either. My guess would be that those various pages are missing from CE18 because they probably had nothing written on them at all. Therefore, the Warren Commission didn't bother putting those blank pages in the official Commission Exhibit. But I cannot see how anyone could claim that the omission of those address book pages was part of any kind of cover-up by the Commission (or by anyone trying to frame Oswald), because if such an "I Will Kill" list really had been in Oswald's own address book (with the names of both John Connally and General Edwin Walker on such a list), such a thing would certainly be pretty good circumstantial evidence of Oswald's guilt, and it would also go a long way toward debunking the CTers who claim Oswald never took a shot at either of those men in the year 1963. I have to agree with Jim DiEugenio on this one --- James Reston is "off the wall" here. But I do have to give Mr. Reston credit for recognizing one solid and evidence-based fact (regardless of motive): Lee Harvey Oswald did shoot JFK and Governor Connally. If anybody's interested, I've got a 1988 ABC-TV interview with James Reston (and John Connally) archived in my video collection.

    This only goes to prove a very significant point.... I.E.: A conspiracy theorist can (and will) come up with almost any type of cockeyed theory if he looks long and hard enough at something---even when looking at a film taken of JFK on Main Street when no gunshots at all were being fired at the President. Thanks, John Butler, for once again proving that important "I See What I Want To See" fact concerning the wholly subjective observations of conspiracy believers. I'm sure Robert Harris is very proud of you.

    Moreover, what do John's posts in this thread have to do with anything real (or even remotely possible) when it comes to the topic of the JFK assassination? Even in the super-bizarre world of conspiracy theorists, John Butler's "JFK Was Shot On Main Street" theory would have to be considered "outer fringe" and worthless. Does a single other person believe in your theory, John? Just curious.

    I'll repeat what I said earlier, John.... "Such inane foolishness doesn't merit any attention at this forum (or any other)."

    Heaven help us! John Butler is actually suggesting (in his last post above) that John F. Kennedy was shot in the back and head while the President's car was on Main Street! Any idea, John, why JFK kept on smiling and waving for several more minutes (on Main, Houston, and Elm) AFTER he was struck by multiple bullets? John, can you possibly be serious when you speak about such a preposterous theory? Or are you just a few months late with an April Fools gag? Either way, such inane foolishness doesn't merit any attention at this forum (or any other).

    Glad you agree with me, Joe, that 7 HSCA 41 pretty much destroys the silly conspiracy theorists who can't stop bellowing "It's so obvious the BY pics are fake!".

    You mean like CTers constantly "rehashing" the long-settled issue of the Backyard Photos being genuine and unaltered items---just as the HSCA declared on Page 41 of HSCA Volume #7?

    The photo wasn't trivial on 11/22. But in my full quote (which you truncated to remove the context), I was talking about what Marina must have been thinking on March 31st when she took the photos. I wasn't talking about what people were thinking about the BY photos on 11/22 or many years later. Here's my full quote (which B.A. Copeland butchered in order to make a different point).... "...But the details of how the camera worked and the exact number of pictures she took were things that obviously were not important enough to her [Marina Oswald] at the time for her to make a mental note of such trivial things. And so, almost a year later when she was asked to recall such things, she was not able to do so. That's certainly not an unheard-of situation at all, IMO." -- DVP

    Explain what? I haven't the slightest idea what you think it is that needs to be "explained" in that film clip. Please enlighten me.

    And just think---there were TWENTY such "corrupt" and/or "stupid" so-called "photographic experts" working for the HSCA in 1978. That's a lot of corruption on just one panel. (And, remember, they were all "stupid"/"corrupt" when it comes to the autopsy pictures too.) There was no end to the corruption (and/or stupidity) in the JFK case, was there Sandy? It extended all the way from the DPD, to the FBI, to the WC, to lying witnesses like Marina and Marguerite, and then (14 years later) to the HSCA as well. Right?

    In addition to Marina Oswald's decades-long insistence that she, herself, took the backyard pictures of Lee Harvey Oswald, here's another good reason for "people like Von Pein" to disagree with the conspiracy theorists who continue to believe that the backyard photos are fakes: "The panel detects no evidence of fakery in any of the backyard picture materials." -- 6 HSCA 146 The full HSCA "Backyard Photographs" report begins here. But, since the HSCA's "No Fakery" conclusion was reached by an official U.S. Government committee, it means that that conclusion will automatically be ignored by many conspiracy theorists. After all, those expert CTers know way more about the ins and outs of photographic interpretation than any of those 20 or so experts who were part of the HSCA's Photographic Panel, right? Per the CTers, those 20 photo experts (as a unit) were all apparently either despicable liars or totally incompetent when it comes to their conclusions concerning not only the Backyard Photos, but they were also completely wrong when they said that President Kennedy's autopsy photos and X-rays "had not been altered in any manner". (The same goes for the "Handwriting Experts" panel as well. According to many conspiracists, those handwriting guys got everything wrong too. Go figure.)

    What on Earth are you babbling on about? What's all this "Bud" stuff? The only Bud I know is the LNer who goes by the name of Bud at the Usenet newsgroup forums. Is that the guy you're referring to?

    So you DO think Marguerite Oswald was telling a big fat lie in her Warren Commission testimony at 1 H 152. That's the very same Marguerite Oswald who hired Mark Lane as her lawyer and the very same Marguerite who was always speaking out about how her son was an agent of the U.S. Government, like in this 1964 interview. (Should we now get bogged down into a silly conversation about "Imposter Marguerites"?)
