  1. Did the Dallas Radical Right kill JFK?

    Bill Simpich's milestone eBook, State Secret: Wiretapping in Mexico City (2014) is available free at the Mary Ferrell website: https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=146586
  2. I perceive a new interest in the CT that the Radical Right in Dallas was behind the JFK assassination. This would include such WC witnesses as General Walker, Robert Alan Surrey, Revilo P. Oliver, Bernard Weisman, and possibly included Dallas officials, Will Fritz, BIll Decker, Jesse Curry, Buddy Walthers, Harry Holmes, James Hosty, Forrest Sorrels, Earle Cabell and others in their company. Such a theory would attempt to harmonize with Jim Garrison and Joan Mellen's identification of a dozen people in New Orleans, including Guy Banister, David Ferrie, Clay Shaw, Jack S. Martin, Fred Crisman and Tommy Beckham. Also implied are Rightist elements in the South including Joseph Milteer, Billy James Hargis, Ed Butler, Carlos Bringuier and Kent Courtney. It would also include people who have already confessed, such as Frank Sturgis, Howard Hunt, David Morales, Roscoe White, Loran Hall, Gerry Patrick Hemming and Lee Harvey Oswald. As a starting point, the recent book by Dr. Jeffrey Caufield, General Walker and the Murder of President Kennedy: the Extensive New Evidence of a Radical Right Conspiracy (2015) is presented.

  3. Oswald Leaving TSBD?

    John, You are stating as a fact that Dallas Policeman Marrion Baker was a L-I-A-R. You say it is "plain and simple" but you don't offer anything to support your claim aside from his Affidavit, which seems very normal for me -- because it sounds a like a person who was "shaken up" by the horrific events of 11/22/1963 (exactly 54 years ago today). Are you upset because the physical description was not very accurate? But Baker only saw LHO for a few seconds, and the lighting was not perfect -- so, why do you expect his physical description to be perfect? To me this sounds very much like the Baker/Oswald confrontation near the 2nd floor TSBD break room. It only lasted a few seconds, and Marrion Baker was anxious to get to the roof of the TSBD, because he felt certain that the JFK shots came from there. What is your rationale for calling Officer Baker a L-I-A-R "pure and simple"? I don't see it. Regards, --Paul Trejo
  4. New document release today 10,744 documents

    David, Thanks for sharing all these recent JFK Records releases. This one you shared is particularly amusing, because it contradicts the very LEAD PARAGRAPH of the German article in question. The interview of General Walker by Helmut Muench for the DNZ on 11/23/1963 (only 18 hours after the JFK assassination) is of special interest to the FBI, because the DNZ published the article in their next weekend issue (11/29/1963) that Oswald was Walker's shooter. Yet Marina Oswald had not told this to the FBI until 12/03/1963 -- several days later. Here's the lead paragraph itself:
  5. Paul B., Your logic is so full of holes that it's difficult to know where to begin. Yet, we've been through this for six years on this Forum, haven't we? It is quite true that Bill Simpich continues to reject my Walker-did-it CT. Also, Bill Simpich prefers to keep his options open with regard to the final interpretation of his brilliant, original discovery of the top secret CIA Mole Hunt that started on October 1, 1963 in Mexico City, in search of the Telephone Impersonator of Lee Harvey Oswald. It is quite true that the historical fact of this top secret CIA Mole Hunt does not require that LHO was actually in Mexico City -- but it doesn't discount that LHO was in Mexico City, either. That is why I add further primary documents and witnesses for my CT. Former CIA asset Edwin Lopez himself said under oath and on video, that he was certain that Lee Harvey Oswald was in Mexico City during the final week of September 1963. So, get your facts straight, Paul B., and quit mixing in your "what ifs" and "must have beens." Regards, --Paul Trejo
  6. Mathias, You're referring to the Kostikov telephone call? Then read CHAPTER FIVE of Bill Simpich's State Secret (2014). Regards, --Paul Trejo
  7. Mathias, Oh, we've read the same text, all right. Yet in my opinion you've missed several important nuances in the text. Bill Simpich and Dick Russell are not claiming that these claimed events actually HAPPENED, but are cautiously sharing that Robert Webster himself claimed that this happened. That's a major nuance, and I think you've overlooked it. Now, what was Robert Webster's motivation for making these claims about Marina Oswald? Does it mean little or nothing to you that Marina Oswald denied these allegations? Why do you state them as fact, Mathias, when all that is being presented is a REPORT FROM A BIASED SOURCE? Robert Webster is trying to hang Marina Oswald as a KGB agent. His motivation is therefore part of the Reds-did-it CT, which was the original CT coming out of Dallas, Texas on the weekend of 11/22/1963. (Hey, that's exactly 54 years ago today!) Robert Webster, in my opinion, belongs to the Right-wing -- that's how he's talking. He seems to hate Marina Oswald, and pretends he has some dirt on her. What a jackass. He has NOTHING but his big mouth. How about some confirmation? None? Crickets? Regards, --Paul Trejo
  8. Mathias, I must disagree, here. Bill Simpich demonstrated -- with copious primary documents (several FOIA recent CIA releases) -- that the CIA high-command knew within ONE HOUR of the telephone impersonation of Lee Harvey Oswald that the speaker was not Lee Harvey Oswald. And while that was fairly suspicious -- the fact that set the bells ringing all over the CIA high-command was the name "Valery Kostikov" because that was the name of an infamous KGB assassin in 1963 Mexico City. The CIA knew this. The Mexico City police knew this. The Mexican Military knew this. Kostikov was a wanted man, who did not leave the USSR Embassy without heavy surveillance. FURTHERMORE -- this infamous telephone call was made on the single most wire-tapped telephone on planet Earth. THEREFORE -- the CIA high-command rightly guessed that the Telephone Impersonator of Lee Harvey Oswald had to be an Insider Mole, who knew absolutely that this telephone was heavily wire-tapped -- and that the name of "Valery Kostikov" would send bells ringing all over the CIA. The Telephone Impersonator failed to realize, however, that the CIA wiretappers would be so good at their jobs that they would realize right away that the Impersonation was WEAK. The CIA started a top-secret Mole Hunt that very DAY -- and their rationale was based on TWO factors: WHO did this, and WHY. The CIA knew for a fact: (1) A CIA Mole did this; and (2) the Mole did this in order to send an alarm about Kostikov meeting with Lee Harvey Oswald at the Soviet Embassy on Friday 27 September 1963. Regards, --Paul Trejo
  9. Mathias, The following is my opinion. I think everybody here must have read this old story. Yet the operative word is STORY. Even Bill Simpich refers to it as a STORY -- i.e. it is an undocumented, unverified STORY. The source of the STORY is probably Robert Webster himself. What we have seen from behavior of other reporters to the FBI and CIA in the JFK Assassination history, that they frequently tell the FBI and the CIA a STORY that they believe might be helpful -- even if the STORY is an exaggeration or even a fiction. For example, in December 1963, Gilberto Alvarado told the CIA in Mexico City that he saw and heard a red-headed Negro give Lee Harvey Oswald $6,500 at the Cuban Consulate in Mexico City, in order to assassinate JFK. Alvarado said he believed that STORY would be helpful to the CIA. Later the CIA pushed him about the truth of the story, and he admitted it was a STORY of pure fiction. So -- again -- Bill Simpich refers to Webster's STORY in passing, partly to illustrate the kind of baloney that was circulating during the first few years of the Warren Commission controversies. Even Bill Simpich doesn't offer any documentation or sources on the STORY. Here is a former CIA "asset", Webster, with a STORY claiming that he was close with Marina Prusakova-Oswald in MOSCOW, though she lived in MINSK, as poor as a church-mouse, with no funds to travel. Webster claims two other factors, to attempt to portray Marina Oswald (18 years old) as a KGB agent: 1. He met Marina again in MOSCOW in 1960. The context of the meeting is not told -- i.e. the most important part 2. Marina spoke English to Webster. The context of the English is not told -- i.e. the most important part. Did she say, "please pass the salt?" Did she say, "Stay cool, man!"? Was she trying to impress him with a few English phrases she learned from Lee? WHAT THE HELL DID SHE SAY? That's so important, but it's not told. The INSINUATION is that Marina Oswald was FLUENT in English -- but that is not explicitly said. Instead, as with most CIA-did-it CTer nonsense, it's just a "what if" and more guesswork. Regards, --Paul Trejo
  10. Mathias, Jim Hargroves operates here with guesswork,"what if," and undocumented rumors, just like his mentor, John Armstrong Regards, --Paul Trejo
  11. New Book!

    Ernie, You don't get to define terms whenever it suits you. A Researcher proper is a professional, with a budget and funding. That's not me and has never been me. I rely on others -- like Dr. Jeffrey Caufield, Professor Walt Brown, Professor David Wrone and so on. Regards, --Paul Trejo
  12. Mathias, Although Bill Simpich does admit that he is guessing that CIA agent David Morales was the CIA Mole who impersonated Lee Harvey Oswald over the,most wire-tapped telephone in Mexico City, however, Simpich is CERTAIN that the top secret CIA Mole Hunt was REAL. There was never any doubt. Oswald was impersonated over THAT telephone in Mexico City on October 1, 1963. The Mole Hunt is real history. Regards, --Paul Trejo
  13. Mathias, Please tell me the date you have in mind, and the source document from which you derived your information on Marina and Webster. Regards, --Paul Trejo
  14. Sandy, since Jim Hargrove has posted his "21 Proofs that LHO was CIA" on multiple threads -- this justifies my doing the same thing. Here is my rebuttal of Jim's 21 so-called "Facts." *** 21 Facts Showing that the CIA Never Handled Lee Harvey Oswald at any Time *** 1. CIA accountant James Wilcott only said that some CIA agent "told him" that he was making payments to an encrypted account for the Oswald Project. Sheer hearsay and rumor; more likely, mocking Wilcott to his face. 2. Even if Antonio Veciana did see DAP and LHO together in the summer of 1963 in Dallas, it was most likely in the context of killing Fidel Castro (DAP's and Veciana's obsession) and not JFK. (Jim Garrison already proved that LHO worked with Guy Banister in the context of a Fake FPCC intended to bring down Fidel Castro). 3. It's nonsense to imagine that no "CIA operations officer in the USSR met a Russian girl and eventually married,” so that you have to read LHO into that sentence. Though former CIA agent Victor Marchetti confirmed that the CIA did have a “fake defector” program in the 1950s, that in-itself is no proof that LHO was part of it. LHO could still have acted on his own. 4. The fact that Robert Webster and LHO "fake defected" a few months apart in 1959, claiming "sensitive" information, that is easily explained by coincidence. What other reason would a young man give? Marchetti said there were scores of such boys in the program, and the US State Department said there were scores of actual defectors during that time frame. The fact that these two guys met Marina Prusakova in Minsk near the same time, also makes sense -- they were both there at the same time, and the USSR sent all "questionable defectors" to Minsk for observation. As for Marina Prusakova, she hated the USSR and would do anything to move to the USA. So, she got around. 5. Although Richard Sprague, Richard Schweiker, and CIA agents Donald Norton and Joseph Newbrough agreed that LHO was associated with the CIA, you could add hundreds of thousands of other names of people who *also* share the same *opinion* without any final proof. These guys had no proof, either. 6. Again -- it is absurd to imagine that no CIA "contact" ever worked at a radio factory in Minsk and returned to the US with a Russian wife and child. People get married under all sorts of conditions, and then they have babies. Minsk was a Soviet observation town for "questionable defectors." There were far too many "fake defectors" and "real defectors" and "double agent defectors" in the USSR in those days to justify a claim that LHO (who had just turned 20) was that "contact." 7. It is nonsense that Kenneth Porter fell in love with young, beautiful Marina Oswald in 1964, and left his family to marry her -- for the sole purpose of monitoring Marina for the CIA! Actually, men leave their wives for younger women all the time. 8. George Joannides was a CIA agent, so naturally he lied about his CIA cases, as well as the CIA cases of other CIA officers. It's what CIA agents are paid to do. Didn't you know? In 1978, for the HSCA, the President's order of secrecy in the JFK Records was still in force. So, nothing the HSCA could say or do would release those FBI and CIA secrets. PERIOD. 9. The CIA often gave medals to CIA agents, like Joannides, who kept CIA secrets under pressure. 10. The FBI and the CIA do not coordinate actions, but compete with each other. The FBI has the duty of Domestic crime. The CIA has the duty of International crime. The clash occurs when criminals travel inside and outside of the USA. Then who owns the criminal's file? To this very day the FBI and CIA cannot agree. The case of Lee Harvey Oswald was an FBI matter from June, 1962, until November, 1963. The CIA (as carefully proved by Bill Simpich) was clueless about the Mexico City telephone impersonation of LHO. This is because the JFK plot was Domestic. The FBI knew. We should first scour the released FBI Records, and leave the CIA Records as secondary. It seems to me that most CTers are doing the opposite. 11. Oswald’s lengthy “Lives of Russian Workers” essay reads like a high-school dropout's idea (or some biased CTers idea) of a pretty good intelligence report. 12. Oswald’s possessions were searched for microdots, because Oswald foolishly used the word, "microdots" in his address book. Ask yourself -- what competent US Agent uses the secret word, "microdots" in his personal address book? Answer: NONE. 13. Oswald owned no Minox spy camera -- that was the property of the wealthy, young Michael Paine, who could afford three cars, two domiciles as well as such expensive toys. 14. The official WC story of the radar operator near U-2 planes defecting to Russia and returning home without a penalty smells like a spy story to a Hollywood hopeful. The US State Department explained it realistically: Oswald never defected -- he never surrendered his US Passport. He never applied for Russian citizenship. He never joined the Communist Party in Russia. He was 19 years old when he was first admitted into Russia. He was an intellectually bright and emotionally retarded young man, having fun. His pals in Russia were the 'naughty' kids, including Marina Prusakova, who hated the USSR, and couldn't wait to get to the USA. LHO laughed all the way through the fun and games. (Actually, he never had it so good. When he arrived back in the USA, he fell into the depths of minimum-wage poverty. Marina was shocked, because LHO was relatively well-to-do in Russia.) 15. CIA double agent Richard Case Nagell knew about some plot to assassinate some world leader -- it could have been Fidel Castro. Nagell warned LHO that if he succeeded in getting a Visa to Cuba as he was seeking -- then Nagell would have to shoot LHO dead, just in order to keep his own cover as a double-agent. LHO sat in his kitchen and wept about that. He worried about the Mexico City trip, and instead tried to make a plan to hijack some airplane or other to Cuba. The CIA didn't ignore anything Nagel said. 16. LHO did save all his US Marine's money to splurge on a European holiday. His Marine buddies testified that he rarely went off the El Toro base. He was tight with money. He gave his ailing mother $100 and then went to Europe to splurge for the first time in his life. When Oswald was nearly out of that money, he asked his mother to send him $100 to apply to the Albert Schweitzer college -- and she did, and Oswald did apply with that money -- but then he changed his mind and "fake defected" to the USSR instead. He was bright -- but not bright enough. He lacked the Right Stuff. 17. When LHO returned to the USA, it was the FBI who debriefed him, because he was now a US Domestic problem. (Actually, however, the CIA did admit that they considered interviewing Oswald for a possible job in 1962, but big bureaucracies move slow; in the long run they decided against it (probably after the Walker shooting.) 18. The US State Department investigated LHO very carefully. They worked with LHO to ensure that he never surrendered his passport. He was 19 years old, for goodness sake! The US State Department had seen many cases like this by 1959. Many of the boys changed their minds after only a few months. None lasted much more than two years. The US State Department would wait it out. When LHO changed his mind in about two years, the US State Department reached out to help him, and even lent him money to move his young family to the USA. Finally, you are mistaken, Jim, about LHO getting an "OK" to travel to Cuba. That never happened. 19. It wasn't just Allen Dulles and Earl Warren who wanted the JFK Truth hidden for 75 years -- it was also FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover and LBJ as well as a dozen other powerful people in Washington DC. National Security was the reason they cited -- and history will show they told the truth. Which is to say, they told us the Truth about why they had to withhold the Truth for so long: "National Security.” 20. CIA's Ann Egerter's testimony to the HSCA was a random comment that has been taken out of context, like a "gotcha!" All she said was that a CIA 201 file was to "investigate Agency employees." Her remark was not presented as the final definition of a CIA 201 file, but CIA-did-it fanatics treat it that way. 21. JFK and the CIA were not at war with each other. Despite angry feelings on both sides, as shown in the NY Times, and even after JFK shouted that he wanted to rip up the CIA to pieces and toss them to the wind -- those words were said in anger over the Bay of Pigs. Anybody would be angry. But afterwards, JFK actually increased the funding for the CIA. Regards, --Paul Trejo

  16. Jim, My explanation is this: 1. Ann Egerter was being as understated as she possibly could -- careful not to divulge CIA secrets to the HSCA. 2. Ann said that a CIA 201 File was for investigating 'Agency Personnel.' 3. Asked if she could think of any other reason for a CIA 201 file, and she replied, "No, I can't think of one" - 4. CIA-did-it fanatics jump to the conclusion -- AHA, this is SOLID PROOF that Oswald was a CIA Agent! It's weak evidence, sir. First, Ann was not a top official in the CIA. She was a glorified clerk. Secondly, she gave a hesitant reply, based on her CIA training to never divulge CIA secrets. Like all other CIA employees (e.g , George Joannides) she was also trained to fib like crazy to Congress and the HSCA specifically. You want to doubt everything Joannides said, but you want to accept everything that Ann Egerter said. Why? Only because it seems to agree with your own starting point -- your own conclusions -- and it allows you to JUMP to your conclusions, which you had already assumed at the start. The extreme poverty of Lee Harvey Oswald demonstrates that he was an unfortunate Marine whose discharge had been downgraded to "undesirable," and he could only get minimum wage jobs in Fort Worth, Dallas and New Orleans. I agree that Lee Harvey Oswald himself was obsessed with the CIA and wanted to be a CIA agent so badly that he could taste it. However, he lacked the right stuff. He lacked the brains to see beyond George DeMohrenschildt's deadly hatred of Radical Rightist Ex-General Walker. So, the CIA lost any interest they had in exploiting this young man who could speak Russian so well -- and let him free-fall among the Radical Rightists of New Orleans. It wasn't only that Oswald's knowledge of Marxism was sophomoric (as George DeMohrenschildt testified), but it was that Oswald was known to be involved in the Walker shooting (as Dick Russell wrote in TMWKTM) as early as April 14, 1963. Jim Garrison (1968) showed LHO's Radical Rightist connections in New Orleans very plainly, I believe. Bill Simpich (2014) showed the high degree of CIA non-involvement in Oswald's life. Ann Egerter's HSCA testimony is weak evidence for anything. It's a couple of wayward sentences that CIA-did-it CTers have exploited far beyond their actual value. Regards, --Paul Trejo
  17. Sandy, THAT's your "PROOF"?? Then, sir, you have a low bar for Truth. You believe that Ann Egerter's sentence can be interpreted to PROVE that Oswald was an "Agency employee," and that he "must have been" a CIA Field Agent? It's weak evidence, sir. Very weak. What I don't understand is how you can allow yourself to jump to important conclusions based on such flimsy evidence. I myself require solid documentation -- far more than a single interpretation of a single sentence of a single witness. Regards, --Paul Trejo
  18. New Book!

    Ernie, Whoever said that I was a "researcher?' By vocation I'm an Information Technology professional over some decades, with various technical certifications. I also enjoy Western philosophy a great deal -- all aspects of it. In 1964, the great British philosopher, Bertrand Russell, published his famous, "Sixteen questions on the JFK Assassination." You can read it at this URL, for example: http://22november1963.org.uk/bertrand-russell-16-questions-on-the-assassination This is the starting point for a deeper penetration into the JFK Assassination. Like many Americans, I was awakened from my dogmatic slumbers by Oliver Stone's movie, JFK (1992) and began reading the mountain of CT literature that had already accumulated since 1963. Don't remind me -- but it's been a quarter-century since Oliver Stone's movie was released. It's hard to believe that the JFK Assassination remains unresolved by thinking Americans for more than a half-century. That's a heck of a lot of CT literature -- hundreds of books, actually. Yet Bertrand Russell's "Sixteen questions" still remains a signpost in the road, offering guidance for the eager student of world history. In any case -- the Walker-did-it CT is the most convincing I have seen to date. And even though this Forum thread is two years old, the "New Book" by Dr. Jeffrey Caufield, General Walker and the Murder of President Kennedy: the Extensive New Evidence of a Radical Right Conspiracy (2015) remains the best book on the topic by far, in my opinion. It's easy to sit back and wait for others to pose a theory -- and then pick at it with nay-saying. Any fool can do that. The really courageous act is to accept the challenge to connect the dots oneself -- the way that Bertrand Russell did back in 1964. Regards, --Paul Trejo
  19. New Book!

    Ernie, In my CT, the racial riots at Ole Miss University (the Mississippi incident) and their outcome, were the indirect cause of the JFK Assassination. JFK and RFK decided to put a former US General into an insane asylum (1 October 1962) Then, four months later, a Mississippi Grand Jury fully acquitted General Walker of all charges (late January, 1963). Walker then announced his main political target would be CUBA. Then, Walker went on a Coast to Coast speaking tour with Segregation Preacher Billy James Hargis (late February 1963 - early April 1963) Then, two people tried to shoot to kill General Walker at his home. All his life, General Walker believed that RFK had sent those assassins to kill him (10 April 1963) Then, Walker went underground -- possibly working on his target of CUBA with like-minded Radical Rightists. In my CT, the Radical Rightists in Dallas assassinated JFK (22 November 1963). Walker also hired lawyers to sue every US newspaper who printed that he was responsible for the Ole Miss riots, because, after all, he was now acquitted. By 1966, Walker had won $3 million in lawsuits (about 10% of his target) against US newspapers. (This would be about $30 million today). However, the Associated Press took the case to the Supreme Court; heard by US Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren in 1967, who decided against Walker. Walker was now poor as a church-mouse. He could barely make his ends meet by preaching to the White Citizens' Councils, the KKK and so forth. In 1973 Walker begged the US Army to get his pension back. By 1982, the US Army gave Walker his pension back. On Halloween, 1993, General Walker passed away. Regards, --Paul Trejo
  20. Tracy, On these points we agree 100%. The Harvey & Lee religion, with its dogmatic preachers, have a quasi-paranoid CT that involves decades of CIA planning to create a "Manchurian Candidate" out of Lee Harvey Oswald (and a so-called body double), and include even Oswald's high-school dropout mother in their CIA plot. It's beyond ridiculous, it's science fiction. They are looking for a Hollywood contract, I'm convinced. The TRUTH has never been on their radar. Dogma is their stock in trade, and so in one sense, your efforts here are heroic -- pointing out flaws in almost every single post that Jim Hargrove and David Josephs post here. I do salute you, sir. HAPPY THANKSGIVING, --Paul Trejo
  21. Yes, Jim, really. You take a dogmatic approach to your Harvey & Lee cult, and you expect to be taken at your word. (You also except your cult leader, John Armstrong, to be taken at his word. No way, Jose!) Most Americans don't buy that sort of "logic." You need harder evidence than innuendo. Regards, --Paul Trejo
  22. Mathias, Evidently you have not read the Lopez Report (2003). It is not speculation that Lee Harvey Oswald was in Mexico City during the final week of September, 1963. Evidently, you have not read Bill Simpich's, State Secret: Wiretapping in Mexico City (2014). It is not speculation that the CIA started a top secret Mole Hunt on 10/01/1963, only HOURS after the telephone impersonation of Lee Harvey Oswald. They knew it was an impersonation -- but who did it? We have already covered the fact that the first phone call was preparatory. That's been asked and answered. If you still need a reasonable explanation why the CIA started a Mole Hunt, then read Bill Simpich's eBook on the Mary Ferrell web site. It's FREE. But you're very mistaken to suggest that the CIA were "the plotters" of the JFK Assassination. After 54 years of guesswork, the CIA-did-it CTers still have no consensus. READ THE LOPEZ REPORT, Mathias. It connects New Orleans with Mexico City in a tangible way, with tangible evidence. It's UNDENIABLE. READ BILL SIMPICH'S eBook, Mathias. It demonstrates using FOIA releases of CIA documents that the Mole Hunt really happened. It's UNDENIABLE. That is, if you accept hard evidence and are finally tired of guesswork. Regards, --Paul Trejo
  23. BUMP for Sandy Larsen on 11/21/2017:
  24. Tracy, It seems to me that every CTer picks and chooses what parts of the WC and the HSCA to believe, and which parts to disbelieve. For example, I believe everything spoken by Marina Oswald while she was under oath to the WC. I also believe everything spoken by Ruth Paine in her WC testimony, and 99.99% of the testimony of the Dallas Russians (excluding small parts of George DeMohrenschildt's testimony). Yet I disbelieve nearly everything spoken by General Walker, Robert Alan Surrey, Warren Reynolds, Revilo P. Oliver, Bernie Weissman, Sheriff Bill Decker, Chief Jesse Curry, Deputy Buddy Walthers, Postmaster Harry Holmes, Dallas FBI agent James Hosty, and many more. What I find, on the contrary, is that most CTers (blaming the CIA) will take a REVERSE position to mine. IMHO, Marina Oswald added nothing at all to her testimony when confronted by the HSCA under oath. She had nothing further to add, because she already gave everything to the Warren Commission -- as her good faith effort to remain in the USA with her babies. All CTers pick and choose. That's my experience. My objection to the Harvey and Lee CT is its lack of logical rigor, and its willingness to jump to the conclusions with which it began. For example, Jim's "21 'Facts' Indicating the Oswald Project Was Run by the CIA" All rubbish. Still -- all of us pick and choose, sir. That's my opinion. Regards, --Paul Trejo
  25. The Dual Life of Albert Osborne

    So, let's talk about the US Army 112th Military Intelligence Group, Fort Sam Houston, San Antonio, Texas, as it relates to the JFK assassination in general, and to Lee Harvey Oswald in particular. In my CT, there seems to be somebody inside that Group -- somebody middle to low-level is my guess -- who secretly belongs to the Radical Right in politics, and more specifically, to the "Friends of Walker" political group in Dallas, Texas. It would be my guess that this middle-to-low level clerk or functionary, was a member of the US Army 24th Infantry Division in Augsburg, Germany, when General Walker was in command. This is the likely scenario -- that some private in 1960-1961 was a faithful follower of General Walker in Germany -- and then, after Walker moved to Dallas, and after this private was honorably discharged from the 24th Infantry Division, he applied to join the 112th MIG in San Antonio, and he was accepted. Then, at some point in 1962 or 1963, this private contacted General Walker and joined the "Friends of Walker" political group. The dues were low, and Ex-General Walker would send out a regular newsletter (two or three pages a month) explaining his recent political activities. Walker would also include a brochure of his copyrighted speeches for sale at $1 each, as well as buttons and other paraphernalia. Although the "Friends of Walker" all voted for Walker in the 1962 campaign for Governor of Texas, there were too few of them -- and Walker lost badly. Yet they never gave up hope. They wanted Walker for US President -- and that's no joke. Now -- after the alleged shooting of Walker at his Dallas home on 10 April 1963, the "Friends of Walker" received several hints that JFK and RFK were trying to kill Walker. This would have radicalized them, IMHO. So -- when Ex-General Edwin Walker saw the date approach for the JFK assassination, he asked for help from his pal(s) inside the 112th MIG in San Antonio. Walker asked for official intelligence information on Lee Harvey Oswald -- sufficient to write Fake News Stories about Oswald, to prepare them for newspapers around the world. This was what Ex-General Walker called "Fourth Dimension Warfare." "Fourth Dimension," explained Walker to his newsgroup, meant "propaganda." It was a simple history lesson. The First Dimension was Land War. The Second Dimension was Naval War. The Third Dimension was Airplane Warfare. So, the Fourth Dimension was Propaganda. Edwin Walker considered himself an expert on Propaganda. He knew how to place newspaper articles to suit his political goals. His confederate inside the 112th most likely helped Walker prepare the News Blurb that Fletcher Prouty saw in the North Pole before Lee Harvey Oswald was even charged with killing JFK.
