  4. Montreal is more than Permindex

    Thank you, Steve.
  5. Oswald's Minox camera

    Paul, why would Michael Paine take photos of military installations?
  6. Montreal is more than Permindex

    Does anyone know where I can find a copy of Maurice Phillips's book De Dallas à Montreal? He had a link to the PDF on his website but unfortunately it's no longer working. Any help would be appreciated.
  7. Montreal is more than Permindex

    David, it seems some of those Italian rifles ended up in the hands of the Cuban insurgents: Ruby was involved with Rothman: Did this firm by any chance sell Mannlicher-Carcano rifles...? Senator John F. Kennedy wanted to put a stop to all that:
  8. Mystery Woman

    Two Australian girls said that Osborne had been sitting next to Oswald. Osborne himself denied this. Who are we to believe? I don't know much about the two girls - but Osborne IS a suspicious character, especially in view of the fact that later he would confide to a friend that he had indeed been with Oswald. On the other hand I know there's reason to believe Oswald went to Mexico by car - or not at all. The whole story remains an enigma to me. So what's your opinion?
  9. Montreal is more than Permindex

    This is also interesting:
  10. Montreal is more than Permindex

    Mark, Oswald's revolver came from a company in Montreal:
  11. Witten's report on Oswald in Mexico just released

    Tracy, there's a number of reasons to believe Wilcott didn't tell the truth. But his political leanings and his attitude toward the CIA is not one of them, in my opinion. If Wilcott truly believed the CIA to be involved in the Kennedy assassination this belief might have profoundly changed his world view, don't you think so? He certainly was not always a leftist or else the CIA wouldn't have hired him. I'm sure they do extensive background checks on prospective employees.
  12. Oswald's Minox camera

    Douglas, this is from "The Last Investigation", page 10:
  13. Mystery Woman

    Interesting. The mysterious phone call to the Cambridge newspaper 25 minutes before the assassination was also supposedly linked to the Profumo affair - and possibly made by Albert Osborne, who sat next to Oswald in the bus to Mexico. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5022789/UK-reporter-got-tip-25-minutes-JFK-assassination.html Was Osborne a Soviet spy after all? Is it possible the KGB learned about the plans to kill Kennedy in Dallas?
  14. A Couple of Real Gems from the "Harvey and Lee" Website

    Sandy, don't you think it's strange that Wilcott would remember a meaningless cryptonym but not the name of the case officer he furnished the money to? And that this cryptonym doesn't appear anywhere in the CIA's files while there are hundreds of documents on the European assassin QJWIN?
  15. A Couple of Real Gems from the "Harvey and Lee" Website

    Jim, I searched the Mary Ferrel website for "RX-ZIM". The only reference to this cryptonym appears to be Wilcott's HSCA interview and John Armstrong's book: https://www.maryferrell.org/search.html?q=RX-ZIM Then I did the same thing for QJWIN. Hundreds of cables and memos appeared: https://www.maryferrell.org/search.html?q=QJWIN So how come that a low-level accountant learned RX-ZIM's real name when this project was so secret that NO reference to it can be found in the CIA's files at all? That's just not very plausible.
