    Pierre Finck Learned his Lesson

    I don't know who Halpern is. Jim D. referenced him earlier regarding the autopsy doctors. He must not be the Halpern ordered by Helms to besmirch the Kennedys. A Forensic Pathologist reasonably close to Bethesda?
  2. Thanks for the link Ray. I'd never seen it. Finally found time. Amazing that we in the USA, a Democracy, have to depend on the BBC for a Honest report. All should watch for first hand reports, and deception.

    Pierre Finck Learned his Lesson

    I've read part of this by Bill Kelly before but missed or forgotten the part on the AF1 transcript about a helicopter to take JFK's body to Bethesda. That's important. A chopper would have arrived much quicker than the hearse, that had his body in it. I can't remember who, but somebody in the morgue remembered a chopper landing "out back", well before the grey Navy hearse did. Before the black private funeral home hearse did before it.

    A Lie Too Big To Fail by Lisa Pease

    John Khoury. He's equally as interesting to me as Michael Wayne. They both should have been investigated in much more depth as opposed to giving them an "out", so to speak. He started at the Ambassador six months before the assassination as a kitchen accountant. Might he be expected to know a little about the kitchen area including the pantry, keeping track of stock on hand? Sighted three times t the hotel that night, once in company of Sirhan by a fellow employee. Also by a fellow student from a college class that was there that night. Then a professor of three of his classes says he was a rabid anti Kennedy right winger. The professor wondered about his financing regarding trips where he sent post cards from Beirut, Cairo and Paris in the summer of 67. Then in January of 68 he was arrested by the LAPD over not making payments on a car. And someone from the American Embassy in Beirut called on his behalf. In his second questioning by the LAPD they basically told him he needed a better alibi. Afterwards he went by to visit his co worker that had seen him three times who wasn't home. In his third interview he changed his story to an even more ridiculous one. Sounds like the LAPD was about as competent as the DPD. Or corrupt, controlled, compromised. Infiltrated.

    Thursday at Ruth Paines House

    After Thursday night, did he leave his wedding ring and a (large) contribution to the family savings fund. And leave himself with what was it, less than twenty bucks after shooting JFK. To escape the country on? Knowing that afterwards the DPD, Texas Rangers, Highway Patrol and FBI would be hunting him. Nah, he just went on Thursday to leave his ring and some money and grab his rifle. Being a lone nut he didn't think about maybe needing his pistol to get away from the scene and left it at the rooming house in Dallas Thursday morning.

    Thursday at Ruth Paines House

    Oswald was being run by somebody. Somebody went to the trouble of setting up the false trail of his purchase of the rifle. It seems like at least part of that was done in advance. They could have just left it hanging as to how he got the rifle to work. On the bus from his rooming house would have been a stretch. Maybe he really had an argument with Marina and wanted to make up. Maybe they just got lucky he went on Thursday and were able to come up with the garage-blanket-bag story after the fact. But with what we now know about Ruth and Michael Paine I have to wonder if this would have been left to chance. Maybe Oswald figured out, overheard or was told something was up regarding JFK's visit to Dallas on Friday. A protest, a "security test" as Vince Palamara alludes to, or a fake assassination attempt by a Cuban to force JFK into action on Cuba. Something that might require him to get out of town for a while afterwards given his Fair Play for Cuba Committee/New Orleans activities the past summer (and some in Dallas more recently with anti Castro Cubans on Harlendale Street?). His handler might have even suggested, you might want to go see you wife and kids Thursday night, you might have to leave town for a while on Friday. Speculation on my part. Not totally unreasonable I think. The Thursday vs Friday visit does not seem totally innocent in retrospect. Ruth never transported the rifle back from New Orleans. She never unloaded it. Michael who arrived to help unload did not. Marina never did. All were questioned by the Warren Omission about it. How did Ozzie get it to Irving? Not hitch hiking, like he told Ruth he got there, she said. Especially not if he was toting those seven small metal file cabinets found in Ruth's garage with info on Cubans in them. There never was a rifle, that Oswald never ordered in Ruth's garage.

    Pierre Finck Learned his Lesson

    This touches on an aspect of the autopsy that has reeked the most to me for years. The selection of the autopsy Doctors. None of them were current practicing Forensic Pathologists. As I understand it, if I remember right, Finck was a Forensic Pathologist but he had not practiced in quite some time. He reviewed the paperwork of others. Humes and Boswell were general Pathologists. Granted, they were all experienced and familiar with anatomy given the training required in their fields. But, if your setting up the autopsy of the recently murdered President of the United States wouldn't you want the best available Forensic Pathologists? I don't think Humes thought or said, I'm the head of this medical school, I'll take this one myself and selected Boswell to join him. He was ordered to do this. Adding Army Doctor Finck was an afterthought to supposedly bring legitimacy to the proceedings given his official title. I forget which author in which book I read years ago pointed out that at least a couple of the leading, most respected, experienced Forensic Pathologists in the country were within about an hour of Bethesda by car or helicopter. New York City comes to mind. I realize the powers that be did not want the best available public or military. They wanted someone who would suffice medically that would take orders unquestionably. Per the AF1 transcripts they planned to take him to Walter Reed Army hospital, about a mile from Bethesda. I imagine they had a pre approved team ready and waiting there. But I've read somewhere back there that Jackie was insistent that if an autopsy had to be done at a military facility it should be Bethesda since JFK had been in the Navy. So JFK's personal physician, Admiral Burkley directed the autopsy from the gallery. Sorry Jim, wasn't trying to hijack you thread topic, I thought this kind of relates to the bigger picture regarding Finck.

    So Finck, the only Forensic pathologist among he, Hume's and Boswell, called in at the last minute, arriving after the autopsy had started, had his notes stolen in the morgue after it was over while he was washing up? And he managed to forget this until he was grilled about it by the ARRB in the 90's. Though others there helped him look for them, and, he did in fact admit actually taking notes. This say's a lot about control over the morgue that night and the people in it for years afterward.
  9. Mr. Simkin, thank you so much for establishing this site. Not just the JFK assassination debate part. Truthful understanding of History is essential to any attempt to shape the future.

    A Lie Too Big To Fail by Lisa Pease

    I don't know how many times I was surprised reading this book. Like on page 202. Regarding the head wound(s). From the autopsy report. "There are two bullet tracks. One extends slightly anterior to the vertical dimension (15 degrees). The second extends 30 degrees posterior to the vertical dimension, so the two tracks diverge by 45 degrees." Huh? Two bullet tracks from one wound? Well, coroner Noguchi didn't say fragment tracks and he should know the difference. Both he and LAPD criminologist Wolfer (a story within himself, taught at multiple LA college, switched bullets) state the wound in RFK's head came from approximately one inch away based on the powder burns. Noguchi ordered several pigs ears they test fired into to establish this fact. Then, pg. 204, Wolfer records in his log "June 13, 1968 - Thursday, 9:30 A.M. - Received Items # 24 and # 25, BulletS from Kennedy's Head." I never knew RFK was hit twice in the head, much less in the same spot. That had to be a bam-bam quick as the trigger could be pulled on a semi automatic or maybe single action revolver. 22 to match all the other bullets. RFK was shot three other times, one went through his coat without hitting him. The other two went in within an inch of each other Under his right arm pit Ranging Upwards, one exiting his chest, the other lodging near his spine just below the neck, neither wound lethal. Both of these shots came from no more than three inches away on his right side. The only other known person in the pantry with a gun, a 22 at that, was ACE Security guard Thane Cesar. On his second assignment for them, reportedly. He was on RFK's immediate right, holding his right arm leading him through the crowd. One witness saw him with it out, he admitted this during questioning but said he never fired back at Sirhan. I don't think Cesar had time in the pandemonium of the moment to fire 4-5 shots. 2-3, maybe. Somebody stepped up next to him and quickly popped two caps, Bam-Bam, behind RFK's right ear. Then ran. The gun used for this could have been easily concealed for all but 5-10 seconds. A small 22. At least two of the unknown suspicious men observed hanging around the pantry prior to the assassination were wearing suits. Such a gun could easily be concealed in a suit pocket, or even loose fitting pants. A semi like this. https://www.bing.com/images/search?view=detailV2&id=FB39683788FA261A121C1FE750C78191B7F6AB89&thid=OIP.zXIhnlK9PsJnSK7yaSa7kgHaFj&mediaurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.gunsamerica.com%2FUserImages%2F137066%2F959274734%2Fwm_3381154.jpg&exph=1200&expw=1600&q=beretta+model+21+bobcat&selectedindex=5&qpvt=beretta+model+21+bobcat&ajaxhist=0&vt=0&eim=1,2,6 Or a revolver like this. https://www.bing.com/images/search?view=detailV2&id=4D7187C013D5357768CB67724C96C285200460DA&thid=OIP.wkpVXw5KCfABEXpZR4m2hQHaHa&mediaurl=http%3A%2F%2Fnfdn.images.s3.amazonaws.com%2Fimagedb%2Fimage229656-f17472b8bad368f5a0b5f3de2ed55a02.jpg&exph=400&expw=400&q=small+22+lr+revolver&selectedindex=0&qpvt=small+22+lr+revolver&ajaxhist=0&vt=0&eim=1,2,6

    2nd Floor Never Happened

    So, there was a Dr. Pepper machine on the first floor where he started his lunch in the domino room. He wandered out front to see the parade and finish his Dr. Pepper there. With Shelly. And Frazier.

    A Lie Too Big To Fail by Lisa Pease

    Larry, I just finished reading your six part essay. Excellent, and I'd say complimentary to Ms. Pease's book. One thing in it I don't remember mentioned in her book, as thorough, deep and long as it is was Schulman's statement to in his LAPD interview regarding other shooters. In response to a statement of his "No, there were no other shooters there". "I though I saw em'". "Nope, you didn't". You go into Rathke a lot deeper than she does. I'm sure she has her reasons not doing so, one likely being 500 pages is extensive, going much over that would be exhaustive. Both of your works on Jeery Owen are once again complimentary and together flesh out and increase suspicion regarding his role in proceedings. I also don't remember her mentioning that in late 67 Sirhan dropped out of sight for three months after he quit the race track in Corona, per the LAPD investigation. One of the most eye opening moments for me in her book were the statements of Dr. Daniel P Brown, PhD. Made in I believe 2011, after your 2008 work. In his hypnosis of Sirhan he found on a particular cue, word, Sirhan would go into "range mode". That he would instantly go into position firing at a target at a shooting range. Under hypnosis he told Dr. Brown this is what happened 6/5/68. A bar down stairs, following a pretty woman , after likely being drugged at the bar to be in the fully proper state of mind (see scopolamine/MKULTRA). Following her (back) to the pantry/ kitchen for coffee with her. Then he partially "wakes up" after the second shot being knocked down onto the table. You both chose the term for a chapter topic near the end.

    Now it can be told: Dag Hammarskjold

    It was enough to draw attention to the subject to create a country song about it before the assassination actually happened. Uranium and Diamonds are valuable. https://playback.fm/charts/country/video/1957/hank-thompson-rockin-in-the-congo
