  1. http://bigstory.ap.org/article/apnewsbreak-russia-had-wiretap-bomb-suspect Hmmm...
  2. And here's a Radio Free Europe article -- wait a minute, Radio Free Europe of cold war days? -- yeah, still around. Does this article mention that an "organized crime boss" lived next door to a certain family and they were friends? I believe it does. http://www.rferl.org...n/24963691.html So, let's see: who started Radio Free Europe? Maybe this article can help: http://en.wikipedia....r_a_Free_Europe Like I said, don't get me started...lol...
  3. Vastly different eras and situations...but a couple of things: the FBI had information on the older brother from 2 years ago. That info apparently provided by...Russia. And the MIT policeman killed, execution-style, later, on the other side of town...brings to mind J.D. Tippit. Too much conspiracy thinking from JFK study colors my view of all events like this. I have to watch it, really.
  4. Dr. Fetzer, well done. Just to be clear, I believe it was Pellicano that interviewed Frazier, not O'Toole. Pellicano recorded the call on O'Toole's behalf. Then, O'Toole ran the stress evaluator. Couple of things here: the pse is still in use by law enforcement agencies. Modern updated versions. I don't think it's allowed in court, but a detective told me that it's VERY useful during investigations. And: Pellicano's in prison in California. I definitely think he would be worth talking to about this subject.
  5. Friday night pre-holiday dump belies the "nothing new here" stamp. They don't dump at these times unless they want something ignored. Often, it's specific tiny details that change a larger view but only for those who understand the complete context. I'd love to see the analysis of this by guys like John Newman and Peter Dale Scott...maybe Anthony Summers.
  6. Tonight's presidential debate moderator, Bob Schieffer, once played an interesting side role in the JFK shooting: When President John F. Kennedy was shot in Dallas in 1963, Schieffer was the Star-Telegram’s night police reporter. As he wrote in a guest column for the Poynter Institute, a journalism think tank, phone calls that night were pouring into the newsroom. “Every phone was ringing,” he wrote. “I grabbed one, only to hear a woman caller ask, ‘Is there anyone there who can give me a ride to Dallas?’ “‘Lady,’ I shouted, ‘We’re not running a taxi service, and besides, the president has been shot.’ “‘Yes,’ the voice responded, ‘I just heard it on the radio and they said my son is the one they’ve arrested.’ “It was Lee Harvey Oswald’s mother.” Read more at http://shortformblog.com/post/34107554405/jfk-shooting-bob-schieffer#U8hLAeOU08800eC2.99
  7. For the background and details of Ed Wilson's intelligence agency connections, a great book to read would be Manhunt by Peter Maas. Pretty sure it's available at Amazon and the other places.
  8. The man was a snappy dresser. Wonder if he and David Atlee Phillips knew of any real good secrets?
  9. Oh yeah: http://bit.ly/QqsOxV
  10. That's right: one version for the public and then the real story. Roots of 11/22/63 buried in the Bay of Pigs documents, as Nixon may have known?
  11. https://nsarchive.wordpress.com/2012/02/03/cia-claims-release-of-its-history-of-the-bay-of-pigs-debacle-would-confuse-the-public/ Love this. Great excuse. Sure wouldn't want to "confuse the public" what with this being a democracy and all. I wonder if there's stuff in that history that JFK researchers might find interesting?
  12. Here's the link: http://nymag.com/news/frank-rich/jfk-2011-11/ I like Frank. Sadly, he appears to be all wrong about Oswald. You can register and comment on this. Be nice, we want to persuade, not drive them crazy.
  13. I am saddened to hear the news of Carl Oglesby. I read The Yankee And Cowboy War about 5 times, starting in 1992, I think. This is the first I've read of Carl's background and I'm fascinated. By the way, that Yankee and Cowboy war continues in America. Might not ever end.
  14. http://politicalwire.com/archives/2011/09/08/jfk_feared_lbj_becoming_president.html "Jacqueline Kennedy recalled in a series of oral-history interviews recorded in 1964, but just released, that President Kennedy felt strongly that Lyndon Johnson shouldn't become president, ABC News reports. In the months just before his death in 1963 he has even begun talking to his brother, Robert Kennedy, "about ways to maneuver around Johnson in 1968." Said Mrs. Kennedy: "Bobby told me this later, and I know Jack said it to me sometimes. He said, 'Oh, God, can you ever imagine what would happen to the country if Lyndon was president?'" "Mrs. Kennedy describes a vice president who was far from the inner sanctum of power. She describes a lieutenant who resisted the president's efforts to solicit his input and involve him, even in areas that interested him.""
  15. Tony Pellicano found a very difficult to find Buell Wesley Frazier back in 1975 for George O'Toole. You could read about it in O'Toole's great book The Assassination Tapes. Not much of direct relevance in this interview, except that he seems to claim that he's saved tape recordings. Now, that's interesting. http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/2011/08/07/hollywood-phone-hacker-anthony-pellicano-breaks-his-silence.html
