  1. Hi Paz, I think a document is an excellent idea. That's a good place to start.

    HELSINKI by train Oct 15 - 16, 1959

    This is a scan from a guidebook to Finland published in 1964. On page 37 it lists "Principal Hotels." Besides the Klaus Kurdi [note spelling] and Torni it lists a youth hostel, the YMCA. The latter would certainly have been a more logical choice for someone who was supposedly living a marginal existance. It would be interesting to find a price quote for the lavish Kurdi and Torni, but it isn't easy to find old guide books from this period.
  3. Fascinating document, thanks.

    Time-Life And the Fiftieth Anniversary

    Great summation of assassination conspiracies past and present (I mean your piece, not the magazine's). When a major news corporation pulls a stunt like this, you have to ask what better proof is there of a continual cover-up conspiracy. I mean, a high school student with access to the Internet could have written a better piece than what Time-Life concocted. They obviously made a very careful and concerted effort .... to avoid the truth. But then Time magazine has a long history of being the official mouthpiece of the Establishment.

    Am I Dreaming? The Post and MKUltra in RFK

    Well said, Jim, and all too true. I guess one thing I was referring to was the autopsy. I'm surprised that they didn't manage to keep Noguchi away from it in the first place. Although they certainly prevented his in-depth testimony from appearing. And Noguchi made it pretty clear from the start that things didn't add up. Is there any evidence that Dulles played any sort of role in the RFK hit and / or cover up? I'm not as familiar with the RFK plot as I am with the JFK plot.

    Paul raises an interesting point - why was this operation so sloppy as compared to the JFK assassination?

    Also on 6 June, RFK Jr was interviewed about the murder of President Kennedy; and, referring to the recently released files, said that the "stuff that has been dribbling out is information that tends to connect the CIA to the assassination one way or another," adding that, after all this time, Americans "should know and should have access to that information." http://insider.foxnews.com/2018/06/06/robert-f-kennedy-jr-reacts-donald-trump-keeping-jfk-assassination-documents-hidden-until

    Interesting idea, Paul. Glad to hear that Lisa got such a big boost.

    The next thing you know, the Post will be running a full-length feature on you on the front page. Then we'll know for sure that we're dreaming, or suffering a mass hallucination.

    What a great idea - the anniversary of the first lunar landing is coming up on July 20 ... perfect timing.

    I never thought I'd live to see the day. I wonder where Jeff Bezos, the Post's owner, stands on the assassinations.

    The Post quoting Lisa Pease is tremendous progress. I'm also looking forward to her book and have pre-ordered it on amazon.

    The Warren Commission And Their Ego

    I agree, Evan. To quote from from Jim DiEugenio's new book which quotes novelist Walter Scott: "when we 'practice to deceive,' we sometimes build a tangled web that is difficult to navigate." Also, I doubt that the Warren Commission anticipated the new digital technologies that would eventually take all of this research to a new level. The more time that goes by, the more ridiculous their lies appear to be. But it will take a lot more work to show the public how much of what happened was tied to Kennedy's anti-colonialist foreign policy. I think that represents the next step.
