  1. Tapper and Clapper

    Yesterday Jake Tapper on CNN interviewed James Clapper, who lied under oath to Congress with impunity, about Michael Flynn pleading guilty to lying to the FBI. What did Clapper say about Flynn's lying? He said it's too bad for Flynn, but "the rule of law does prevail in this country."How shameless can you get? Both of them. Tapper for having Clapper on, of all people, to talk about someone lying, and Clapper for basically saying Flynn is getting his just desserts for it.I wanted to puke.
  2. The Dual Life of Albert Osborne

    I went back and reviewed what I have on the Floyd trial. According to Torbitt, one of the conspirators in the Floyd murder told Bill Allcorn, a government attorney who helped work on the case, about the 25 to 30 assassins kept in Mexico, with the contact man being John Howard Bowen, reachable through the owner of the St. Anthony Hotel in Laredo. If that's true, apparently any info on Osborne and the assassins would be in Allcorn's private files, not in the trial transcript. But then how would Torbitt know what some conspirator told Allcorn off the record?
  3. The Dual Life of Albert Osborne

    Shouldn't there be a court transcript of the Floyd murder trial, to show if there was any such testimony about Osborne and his alleged school of assassins? As for Division 5, which I've heard about before, is there or has there ever been any such division in the FBI? A quick Google search found nothing about it except one crackpot website.
  4. The Dual Life of Albert Osborne

    John, Yes, I'm aware of the Torbitt Document. I was referring to the source of the notion that Osborne was connected to the ACCC. Roberts is the one source I know of. Torbitt may have been Penn Jones's source on Osborne's assassins in Mexico. Torbitt predates Jones's book by four years.
  5. The Dual Life of Albert Osborne

    Unfortunately Jones didn't put a lot of stock in citing sources.
  6. The Dual Life of Albert Osborne

    Paul, One of Brussell's sources on Osborne may have been Penn Jones, who wrote in Forgive My Grief IV (1974) that Osborne was "House Mother" to a group of American assassins in Mexico.
  7. The Dual Life of Albert Osborne

    Paul, The only source that I know of is Craig Roberts. In his book Kill Zone, in which he says that Osborne reportedly ran a facility in Oaxaca for 25-30 professional assassins Roberts states that Osborne "posed as a missionary with the American Council of Churches" (sic). But Osborne was ostensibly a Baptist minister, his missionary work as such seems to have been associated with Baptist Churches, and no FBI report on Osborne that I'm aware of mentions the ACCC, with which the Southern Baptist Convention was not affiliated. (BTW Roberts also cites Bo Gritz's statement that Osborne is thought to be the older of the three tramps marched through Dealey Plaza. In his book Gritz neglected to say who thinks that.)
  8. Albert Alexander Osborne

    Yes, thanks Tom, that's the current location of the article. However, I don't know how much longer that website will remain online. If anyone knows where the Osborne article and a few others of mine (e.g. The Tokyo Flight and Jack Ruby's Dog) might find a permanent home, please let me know. I had a free website at one time, but I placed my JFK articles on it and the account was summarily canceled. (I think what they really objected to was Greetings from Lee Harvey Oswald.)
  9. I was referring to Rabin being in Dallas, not to the Peres brother.
  10. Accessories After the Fact

    I've got that and shelves of other JFK books that I'm willing to sell at a reasonable price plus postage. All in good shape, though I did some yellow marking in most of them.
  11. And lest we forget, Yitzhak Rabin was in Dallas on 11/22/63 (on his way home to Israel via NYC, I believe, after a U.S. tour). But coincidences, of course, never cease.
  12. The Dual Life of Albert Osborne

    He was ordered to leave Mexico in 1958 as an undesirable alien after selling a car in Oaxaca without paying the import duties. (CE 2121, p. 576, and 2195, p. 34,)
  13. Rachel Maddow, JFK and Easy Money

    He visited his hometown of Grimsby that November, but we don't know where he was on the 22nd. (Grimsby is not near Cambridge.)
  14. Rachel Maddow, JFK and Easy Money

    A good example of such ignorance on the TV news networks is Turker Carlson the other night, oohing and ahhing with some guest over a newly released document (the same one released in 1976?) about the anonymous Cambridge, England phone call made minutes before the assassination. We've only known about that phone call for 41 years.
