    2nd Floor Never Happened

    If I am not mistaken, this is the supposed 5th floor "chicken bones" bag and drink bottle.

    Three Tramps - Wise, Bass & Mystery Man

    I just noticed something I had not before. In the first photo, the man labeled "COP 1" looks to be wearing loafer style shoes. Unfortunately, the shoes are not visible in the other photos and even in the 1st photo are not absolutely clear. Has anyone else seen this? Are these officers definitely identified by anyone? This seems to me, odd. I don't think I have ever seen a uniformed police officer wearing anything but standard "uniform oxfords" of one form or another. I have seen them in standard wear style and high polish dress versions. I would think that back in 1963, as is still the norm even today, that uniformed officers would be expected to wear "uniform shoes". I know plain clothes detectives deviate from the norm in that they wear shoes commensurate with their particular clothing of the day (at least in recent years).

    The Minox Camera

    Here is a vintage Minox and light meter with their cases. Maybe this will help identify the camera. Hopefully this image appears in the post.
  4. Is this the same book (or a different variation/version) that is on Amazon right now for $25. It is listed as B0006X3KHQ, first edition, 1977 by George Carroll Dyer and has 294 pages.

    LBJ Did It To Stay Out Of Jail?

    Joe, I'm certainly no expert on it, but I believe the only necessary people are the administrator of the oath, the person being sworn and probably two witnesses. This is one thing that makes me believe at least part of D. Lifton's scenario. They had to have her away from the body in order to move it. There is absolutely no other reason to have her there.
  6. Yes, based on positioning within the motorcade and the color of the car, it should be. Not a lot to go on since pretty much only the windshield header appears. I was really asking about pictures or films occurring before the limo got to the TUP. There are pictures showing the camera cars, etc., but not a single photo of the VP car. Just another one of those coincidences. It always seems that items/people of interest are just out of frame or blurred. Very exacerbating.
  7. I just realized my tunnel vision regarding the assassination and pictures relating to it. I have never thought about trying to find pictures or film depicting the vice president's departure from Dealey Plaza. Now that I have, I can't seem to find depictions of the VP's car leaving the plaza. I may be overlooking them, but the last instance I have noticed is Altgens 6 where many debate the question of whether LBJ is ducked down in the seat. Can anyone point me to others?

    Records release regarding intercepted messages

    Having looked at the letter mentioned above and not being very familiar with the Dinkin story, I am a little confused. If his mother were attempting to forewarn President Kennedy of the attempt on his life, as her son had also done, why is her letter dated December of 1963 and addressed to the president who had been dead for some weeks at this point?

    Post Script Final Installment: Episode 9

    Thanks, Joe. Like I said in the previous post, I tend to study and not comment other than occasional questions, but I will in this case. I think the presentation is well thought out and offers great insight. As somewhat of a history buff for most of my life, I find it almost unbelievable that so few people in this age of "knowledge" take the time to gain historical perspective or even care about the underpinnings of events happening around them. Most people I have interaction with are completely immersed in their jobs/careers and either don't want to or won't take the time to do more than read/listen/watch the headlines and let others tell them what it means. I was eight years old when JFK was killed and twelve when RFK was murdered. I had already begun to study histories and was very interested in government by the time RFK died. I lived, and still do, in what used to be called the "deep south". Due to my reading/studying of history, politics and government, I found myself virtually a pariah in my family and neighborhood. I had become an ardent RFK democrat and advocate of the insanely "liberal" civil rights views (at least in my neighborhood) of MLK. I recall staying up late and seeing the news that RFK was murdered and immediately thinking that all hope was lost for the way of life I was anticipating on growing into. Then of course, more and more of the Warren Commission critics investigation became available and I became addicted to accessing as much as I could get my hands on. I have only watched the link at the top of this topic, but I think it makes a compelling case. With the benefit of hindsight and much study, I think this five year period is the link to much of the digression in our society. I do think it started much earlier, right after WWII when the "cold warriors" began remaking the world in their image. I think it's possible some, if not most of them had good motives at the start, but it was usurped by those who had a wholly different world view. The old "one bad apple can spoil the whole bunch" idiom as well as "birds of a feather flock together". Once as few as one person gains power and has the ability to maintain it for an extended period of time he can surround himself with like minded people. This unfortunately can repeat until a tipping point is reached. I think this is what happened in the early to mid 60's. Thanks again for the comment Joe. Now you see why I don't comment a lot. I can't seem to be concise. I should just post a picture, huh.

    Post Script Final Installment: Episode 9

    I have always told myself that I would not divert a topic or go beyond just studying the facts presented here, but I will make one statement here and then try to go back to my self imposed rule. I think DJT is a fairly simple man, ...follow the money. No morals, no scruples, no bounds.

    Bernard Wilds' website of rare JFK research PDFs

    I started getting the error yesterday as well. I had just bookmarked it and was anticipating many hours of fruitful reading. Do we know if is accessible by anyone, anywhere. I am in the US.

    Is this something most researchers are aware of?

    Additional Info added: Couldn't edit, so I added it here. WSB TV and radio originate out of Atlanta, GA and are currently part of Cox Media Group. They saved a lot of raw footage from 1949-1981 for historical reference, unfortunately it is only of local coverage for the most part which deals with events or people in/around Atlanta. There are a few films which deal with JFK and the assassination. The others include various people reacting to the assassination or the Warren Commission Report (an elementary school principal/students creating an uproar about something to do with the assassination) and one with Mark Lane who was evidently in Atlanta (1967/1968). There are (4) clips of Robert Welch (JBS) from 1957-1967 making comments on communism, the Warren Commission, etc.

    Is this something most researchers are aware of?

    The interview was on December 4, 1963, but it does not mention the date(s) Oswald supposedly stayed at the hotel. It does say the transcript begins in the middle of the interview. I'll have to try watching the interview and see if it includes more info.
  14. I just came across this from one of my local TV stations archive of news films. I have not viewed the film yet, but it has a transcript attached. I had never heard of this information before, so I don't know if it is well known in the research community or not.. http://dlg.galileo.usg.edu/news/id:wsbn45769 In this series of WSB-TV newfilm clips of Elaine Glosson being interviewed by an unidentified male reporter on December 4, 1963, she is seen discussing Lee Harvey Oswald staying at the Atlanta-area hotel she worked at. Ms. Glosson is shown sitting in a chair in front of a black background as an unidentified male reporter asks her various questions about her interactions with Lee Harvey Oswald at the Northwest Holiday Inn in Atlanta. The interview is transcribed in full below. The first clip begins in the middle of the interview. Glosson: ... "The manner in which he was dressed and actually his mannerisms; they were sort of cocky. He was dressed sort of shabbily--he needed to shave--just sports clothes." Reporter: "He stayed at the motel how many nights?" Glosson: "The first time he stayed one night." Reporter: "Oh, he came back?" Glosson: "Yes, he came back again." Reporter: "Well what happened after the first time?" [clip skips forward here] "...came from?" [It's probable he's asking about the gun Oswald left behind.] Glosson: "I'm not certain. I think it was from Birmingham, Alabama." Reporter: "And did he come back after the gun?" Glosson: "Yes, he did. It was about three nights later. He came in the office and registered and asked for his gun and we took him back to my manager's office behind the front desk and he got the gun out of the safe for him, and he asked him for some identification and he produced the Texas driver's license with his name on it." Reporter: "And what was the name on it?" Glosson: "Lee H. Oswald." [Here the clip zooms out and shows the reporter.] Reporter: "What kind of gun was it?" Glosson: "It was a revolver. It had a pearl handle and the barrel was, I think it was unusually long. Well, I don't know too much about guns but it looked so to me." Reporter: "Did you question him or did anyone question him about what he was doing with a gun?" Glosson: "No, he made no excuse whatsoever for having the gun." [Here the clip zooms back in.] Reporter: "He left the motel without incident, did he?" Glosson: "Yes." Reporter: "And when did you have next occasion to think about this man?" Glosson: "Well actually he really made an impression on me that night; I thought about it several times. But the Friday the President was shot, I heard the name on the radio and then it sounded very familiar. He was about the same age man and from the description--I hadn't seen a picture of him--it sounded like the same man. But later on that afternoon I saw his picture on TV and I knew then that it was the same man." Reporter: "Did the other employees at the motel see him?" Glosson: "Yes. Mmhmm." Reporter: "Do they think it's the same man?" Glosson: "Yes, they do." Supporting information was taken from the following source: The Harold Weisberg Archive, Digital Collection. Hood College.

    J Featherston information

    Thank you Kathy. With his background, I am surprised that I found so very little about him on the internet. Perhaps it has to do with fact that he died so long ago (in respect to the age of the internet), that is. Very interesting and informative. He seems to have been a very dedicated and distinguished journalist along with his other good traits. I think with this info we can pretty definitely say that if he had anything to do with the photos disappearing, he was not aware of his role. He seems to have followed his journalistic instinct and got as much info as he could on site and then tried to make sure the witness having evidence (if any) got to the police. There, like in so many other instances, the chain of evidence seems to go awry with the very people who are supposed to be trained to keep that chain unbroken.
