  1. Eugene Dinkin: The Saga of an Unsung Hero

    Paul, Daniele Ganser thinks that Allen Dulles was behind General Challe's April 1961 coup against de Gaulle and that Challe was also close to the French section of the stay-behind network. Europe's right-wing terrorists were cooperating on an international basis ---> http://guillaumeorigoni.blog.lemonde.fr/2012/03/20/1-6-yves-guerin-serac-et-laginter-press-un-francais-dans-une-officine-de-linternationale-noire-2/
  2. Number of shots in Dealy Plaza?

    George, has anyone ever tried to see if the blur in the film is in sync with the shots on the tape?
  3. Did the Dallas Radical Right kill JFK?

    Jason, it wasn't Hoover who sabotaged the HSCA but George Joannides from the CIA.
  4. A Couple of Real Gems from the "Harvey and Lee" Website

    I don't think he got that from the Warren Report.
  5. A Couple of Real Gems from the "Harvey and Lee" Website

    Sandy, as I pointed out in a different thread, we still don't know whether Oswald took a lower or an upper range test. My original estimate you are refering to was based on my assumption of the test being upper range. But we definitely need more information on how military language tests in the 1950s looked like to make a truly educated guess on Oswald's abilities. Maybe someone could get into touch with the Defense Language Institute?
  6. Number of shots in Dealy Plaza?

    Isn't that what a lot of witnesses said? That the last two shots were "bunched together" closely?
  7. Did the Dallas Radical Right kill JFK?

    Jason, the idea of a huge conspiracy spanning Big Business, the military, intelligence agencies, politicians and the Mob may seem far-fetched, but this is exactly what existed in Italy for decades. I'm talking about the masonic lodge Propaganda Due, which has been linked to many instances of financial fraud, shady arms deals and support of terrorism in Italy. Similiar networks seem to have existed in Kennedy's time - they were united by one mutual goal: the removal of Fidel Castro. You say that a lot of could have gone wrong in Dealey Plaza - and a lot DID go wrong in fact. Have you seen the "Prayer Man" film? --> It makes a convincing case that Oswald was indeed on the 1st floor drinking a coke when the shots rang out - just as he always maintained during his questioning. But evidence to support his claim was suppressed and testimony altered. So the conspirators were obviously well connected. They had all the important people running the investigation in their pockets. How did Ruby get into the basement? Someone opened a door for him, obviously. And Oswald was not brought downstairs until Ruby was well in position. All he had to do was shoot Oswald in the belly when the police presented him on a silver plate... I too believed for a long time that the conspiracy had to have been confined to a very small number of people. But that film above has been a real eye opener. You and Paul still seem to ignore the other plots in Chicago and Dallas. What do you make of the eery similarities between Oswald and Gilberto Lopez? They were obviously used and manipulated by the same people. Most likely people who had access to Oswald's top secret file - and who passed on the wrong description of Oswald that the file contained to the Dallas Police. How would General Walker get access to this kind of information?
  8. Did the Dallas Radical Right kill JFK?

    Paul, what I'm driving at is that there seems to be some circumstantial evidence that WerBell was close or at least sympathetic to far-right groups. Not only did he train right-wingers in his camps but some of his machine guns somehow ended up in the hands of Italian neo-Fascists. In my opinion the whole title of this thread is wrong - the Dallas far-right was certainly not behind the assassination, at least not alone. We've already established there were several other plots in other cities, so the conspiracy had to have been much bigger. We also know that during the Cold War the "far right" also had an international dimension. I'm specifically talking about groups like the "World Anti-Communist League" (WACL) and its connections to the military dictatorships of Taiwan and Latin American and Apartheid South Africa. I think it's no coincidence that the American section of the WACL would later be headed by WerBell's old pal from Indochina, John Singlaub. (Banister's Anti-Communist League of the Caribbean would later also become part of the WACL.) It was under the umbrella of the WACL that Latin America's military regimes would launch "Operation Condor", a program of targeted killings of dissidents. The Letelier murder for instance was ordered by Chilean intelligence and carried out by exile Cubans, but it had been planned by former CIA contract agent Michael Townley. Townley again can be linked to David Attlee Phillips. He ran a clandestine radio station that broadcast anti-Allende propaganda during the time that Phillips was running his anti-Allende operation. And there's circumstantial evidence that Phillips was also involved in the planning of the murder of Letelier (see the "Last Investigation"). (By the way, Townley would later also allege that the Pinochet Regime had ordered him to kill Olaf Palme, although he refused to carry out this assignment. There's evidence that the actual killing of Palme had been a mutual operation of South African agents and Neo-Nazis in the Stockholm police force.) My point is: I think that the lines you draw between the "radical right", the military, the intelligence agencies and politics don't seem to exist in reality. I think there's no way that an operation as big and sophisticated as the Kennedy assassination could have been carried out without the knowledge or even consent of the powers that be in Washington. Now if you could show how General Walker was linked to, say, Lyndon Johnson, that would be interesting I think. Johnson, Texas oil and the big military hardware makers there certainly had a mutual interest in removing Kennedy. After all, what did Johnson say in early 1963 about Kennedy when he announced his trip to Texas? "Wait until November until you shoot him down." How prescient.
  9. Did the Dallas Radical Right kill JFK?

    Paul, in the 1980s members of the far-right LaRouche group were trained in WerBell's anti-terror training camps. I was hoping you had some more detailed information about WerBell's political leanings and affiliations. Rumor has it that WerBell's "silent kill devices" were used to kill JFK. --> http://spartacus-educational.com/JFKwerbell.htm
  10. What's Worse -- T3 Denial or Holocaust Denial?

    I did a little experiment. My wife - she's a physiotherapist - marked the location of T3 on my back. She measured it to be about 22 cm down form the hairline. Then we did the same thing while I was lying on my stomach. Due to the contraction of the skin it now appeared to have moved about 5 cm upwards. Now if we look at Kennedy's autopsy photo we'll notice that not only is he lying face down, but it also appears that the doctors are even pulling the skin on his back up toward the neck. At least that's what the hand on his shoulder seems to be doing (notice the wrinkles in the nape of the neck). https://ixquick-proxy.com/do/show_picture.pl?l=deutsch&rais=1&oiu=http%3A%2F%2Fmcadams.posc.mu.edu%2Fzimmerman%2Ffrontmenu_i000003.jpg&sp=ad20f40873cebfe9cf5dec73e95e976f It appears the photo was staged to conceal the real location of the entrance wound - T3.
  11. Did the Dallas Radical Right kill JFK?

    Paul, I remember reading that Hemming once was a weapons salesman for WerBell, a former OSS agent who was involved in various clandestine CIA operations. Some of his weapons would later turn up in the hands of terrorists. What do you know about WerBell and his relationship to Hemming?
  12. A Couple of Real Gems from the "Harvey and Lee" Website

    Hello Jim, could you elaborate on this? Did he lose the entire tooth or just a part of it? When and where did it happen? And what is the evidence?
  13. Did the Dallas Radical Right kill JFK?

    Jason, if you compare the backgrounds of Oswald and Gilberto Lopez you'll realize that the plotters chose their patsies very carefully. Both men had been to Russia, both had been in fights with anti-Castro exiles, both were associated with the Fairplay for Cuba Commitee, both had traveld to Mexico shortly before the assassination etc. And Dealey Plaza had that peculiar "dog leg" curve, so the crime scene was also chosen deliberately. The plotters left nothing to chance.
  14. Did the Dallas Radical Right kill JFK?

    Paul, Frazier's testimony has always puzzled me, because I never believed Oswald's story about the curtain rods. Your explanation - that Frazier was afraid of being charged as a confederate of Oswald's - makes a lot of sense I think. However, I'm sure you're aware that Pat Speer has shown that there numerous questions concerning the official story of the paper bag --> http://www.patspeer.com/chapter-4c Gerry Patrick Hemming is certainly an interesting character. I'm sure there's a kernel of truth to some of his stories, but at least a few have turned out to be disinformation.
  15. Did the Dallas Radical Right kill JFK?

    Gilberto Lopez also worked in a building situated near the route of JFK's motorcade in Tampa.
