    Mili Cranor Demolishes more Disinfo

    Jim, The comments I made were in response to Mike Walton's refusal to accept that photos might have been altered, when in fact the clothing evidence clearly indicates that to have happened. My comments had nothing to do with the article. With regard to the article, I'm just glad there are people like Milicent Cranor who will spend the time countering the spreaders of disinformation, like this Nicholas R. Nalli.

    Fortunately it is still possible to disprove the SBT in spite of the fact that the autopsy photo was faked. Unfortunately the fakery in the photo helps make the SBT look more viable.

    Of course you are right, Cliff. I'm glad you keep reminding people of the clothing evidence. The bullet hole on the shirt and jacket are significantly below the bullet hole shown in the autopsy photo. For some reason Michael Walton simply refuses to consider the possibility that photos were faked, and this forces him to ignore inconvenient discrepancies... in this case the misalignment of the bullet holes. For some reason he has no problem ignoring discrepancies.

    David, My point wasn't that Powers and Oswald were both false defectors. My point was that they were both CIA employees Here's my line of thinking: We ask ourselves, why did Gary Powers carry a military dependent ID card (even though he wasn't a dependent)? So that he could freely access military bases. Who issued his military dependent ID card? His employer, the CIA. (We know the military didn't issue it because it wasn't issued according to strict military standards... Chris Newton produced document showing how the military issued the cards.) Therefore, we conclude that the CIA had an agreement with the military, that they could issue military dependent ID cards to their employees. Those who needed frequent access to military bases. Then we ask ourselves, how did Oswald get a military dependent ID card? There is no reason the military would issue one to him. (And in fact, we know the military didn't because, like Powers' card, it wasn't issued according to strict military standards.) So some other government agency must have issued it. The CIA is the only way we know that a non-dependent could get a military dependent ID card. Therefore the CIA likely issued Oswald's card. Therefore Oswald -- like Gary Powers -- likely worked for the CIA. My opinion is this: Oswald's military dependent ID card probably had the same photo on it as the passport application... the photo of LEE. (This will change later.) Presumably this card stayed in America during the defection. HARVEY took to Russia a composite photo of him and LEE. This is the so-called "Minsk photo." HARVEY used the so-called Minsk photo for one or more of his Soviet ID cards. We know that because at least one came back with a Soviet style security stamp on it. Upon returning to the U.S., HARVEY peeled the LEE photo off of his military dependent ID card and pasted in its place the so-called Minsk photo. This photo shows the "rim" of the Soviet style circular security stamp, and so it looked out of place on the military card. Oswald camouflaged this by making a number of circular and text stamps in that area. What he did looks a bit like a circular postal stamp. Richard Case Nagell thought he could do better. He made a photocopy of Oswald's military ID card, and carefully removed Oswald's camouflage work. He then did his own camouflaging. What he did was cover the security stamp area by drawing in a white shirt, tie, and suit.

    David, To further make your point, you should add that the DOD ID card was issued to Oswald illegally. It was a DEPENDENT ID card and was to be issued only to dependents of active military personnel. (To allow dependents to be on a military base without getting a temporary pass or being escorted.) Oswald, of course, was not a dependent. So he was ineligible for the card. One must ask why he was issued a dependent card at all, and why so only days before his discharge. In a hypothesis posted here: I make the case that the card was issued to Oswald in order to expedite getting his passport. And that this was done by the CIA. Chris Newton had pointed out that Gary Powers, CIA U-2 pilot. carried the very same military dependent card. That the CIA was involved should tip us off to what was really going on with Oswald's trip. (How do Jason and Mervyn explain Oswald's illegal possession of the card? And how it was used by Oswald to get a passport before it was even issued?) BTW David, thanks for your presentation of documents above. Well done.

    The KGB and the JFK case

    The false flag operation was the CIA killing Kennedy, but trying to place blame on the Cubans and Russians via the Mexico City ruse. Because of all the hints we see of one of the Mexico City photos being sequestered from the others. The "others" being the heavy set "Mystery Man." Here are the hints: 1. Win Scott set aside the one photo that was known to the CIA, and sent it to J.C. King. 2. The Cubans, when they made public their conspiracy theory (documented below), spoke of one photo (not the heavy set guy) that was withdrawn from the Warren Commission. 3. In response to the Cubans' allegations, a CIA spokesman admitted that one photo was indeed withheld from the Warren Commission. Obviously this was not of the same man whose photos the Warren Commission retained. It had to have been Leonov. You need to read the document I link to below to see what I am talking about. It seems clear to me that the Warren Commission got the multiple photos of the heavy set Mystery Man. The one they didn't get was they one the CIA knew, and that was Leonov. The Johnson Administration withheld that from the Warren Commission to avoid any hint of Cuban or Russian conspiracy. That the assassination was a CIA false flag operation designed to blame Castro. A pretext for U.S. invasion of Cuba. They also knew that the Oswald in Mexico City was not Oswald at all, but rather a CIA employee. They knew that the man posing as Oswald was the same person whose photo had been withheld from the Warren Commission... the person we know as Leonov. This is identical with my conspiracy theory. The only difference being that they don't openly state that the photo was of a known KGB agent. At least not in the news article. (The one thing the Cubans probably wrong is that they suspected the CIA conspired with the Mafia.)

    This has the link.

    The KGB and the JFK case

    Yes, I think that is very telling. It tells me that Angleton's 1963 false flag operation was specifically targeting Nikolai Leonov. Later Win Scott sequestered Leonov's photo from Mystery Man's photos and sent it to J.C. King with the note, "a certain person who is known to you In 1978, Cuba revealed that it has figured out the conspiracy. Its pretty much what I keep saying. And it involves Leonov's photo. They say the WC first got the photo but then it was withdrawn. See the first two or three pages of this document: https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=55413#relPageId=27&tab=page This is a long-solved case. Not the whole thing is solved, but much of it. The Cubans got it right.
  9. Tommy, The difference between us is apparently this: You believe that the KGB was behind the assassination. In contrast, I believe the assassination was a CIA false flag operation designed to make it look like the KGB was behind the killing. It was really the CIA that killed Kennedy. It makes absolutely no sense that the KGB would try to kill Kennedy. This is demonstrated by the lengths at which the Soviets went to to deny having anything to do with Oswald. The assassination and the Mexico City evidence pointing to the Soviets was a nightmare situation for them. It's not something they would have intentionally brought upon themselves. IMO

    The KGB and the JFK case

    Tommy, Regarding Angleton's Byetkov story, I don't see anything about Kostikov, or about the Soviets giving us false information regarding Oswald prior to the assassination. Can you tell me which pages to look at?

    The KGB and the JFK case

    Bill Simpich also fell for this misunderstanding. From State Secret 5: "Angleton went on to claim that there were several photos of interest. Two of them were photos of Leonov and Castro together, found in Castro’s possession when he was arrested in Mexico City in 1956, as well as a photo of Castro’s arrest itself. The true version of this story is that Leonov’s business card was found in Castro’s wallet. Angleton also claimed that a photo of Leonov was supposedly found in Oswald’s pocket when he was supposedly arrested in Mexico"

    The KGB and the JFK case

    Dear James, From the context of what Senator Baker had asked Angleton just a minute or two earlier, and Angleton's response thereto, it's clear that Mr. Schwarz meant to say "Fidel Castro," instead of "Oswald," and that they were all talking about KGB-boy Nikolai Leonov (you know, the quite short, very thin-faced "Blond Oswald in Mexico City"?) rather than some dude named "Leontov". https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=1447#relPageId=12&tab=page Yes, that appears to be the case. Good catch Tommy. I had thought that Angleton's testimony regarding the picture in Oswald's pocket -- as mentioned by Schwarz -- had been redacted from the document. But now I see that Schwarz confused not only the person (Oswald instead of Castro) but also a picture being in his pocket rather than just a name written on a piece of paper. So therefore Angleton did not really say that Oswald had been arrested in Mexico. It was Castro who had been.

    The Office that Spied on Its Own Spies

    Tommy, Thanks for pointing out my typo. I'm not really interested in becoming a spy games expert. But I did do a search for "Oswald" in Bagley's book because I wondered if anything he wrote would affect my working CT. As it turns out, it made no difference. I couldn't understand one thing you said. You said that Nosenko's (false) claim that Oswald hadn't been monitored closely or interviewed by the KGB suggests that some sort of relationship with Oswald had existed before his false defection. Please explain how it suggests that. To me it suggests only that Nosenko was distancing the KGB from Oswald.

    The Office that Spied on Its Own Spies

    Tommy, I don't comment much on Nosenko because I haven't done a lot of studying regarding him. But I've long felt that the timing of his defection and what he said about Oswald made a pretty good case for his being a fake defector in light of my CT. As you know, I believe that the Mexico City story was designed by elements of the CIA to create a link between Oswald, Cuba, and Russia in the assassination of JFK. The purpose being to create a pretext for a Cuba invasion. I believe that one of Nosenko's assignments was to inform the U'S. government that there was no such link between Oswald and Cuba and Russia. This was at odds with Angleton's goals and maybe that is what drove him to keep Nosenko locked up. BTW, Angleton was still pushing the Oswald/Cuba/Russia story during the HSCA hearings. Thanks for bringing to our attention that Newman and PDS both believe Nosenko was a fake defector. It's nice to know there are reputable researchers whose beliefs support mine, at least regarding this topic.
  15. Thanks Michael. I'd forgotten about my challenge to Paul Trejo.
