    Corsi's Book

    Good Day to everyone! I don't know how the weather is where you all live, but we are getting our butt's kicked by the heat. Okay, has anyone read Jerome Corsi's book on JFK? If so, what do you think? RIch

    Corsi's Book

    I agree. I believe the bullet came from the front, but not from the Grassy Knoll.
  3. Paz, You have to keep in mind that as long as people who have direct knowledge of the assassination are still alive (Bush), a new investigation won't yield anything new in terms of who was involved. What it will happen is the CIA will use the opportunity to roll-out more disinformation.

    The women of JFK

    I wrote this book for a school district whose textbook didn't cover the assassination. The school held a contest and the students designed the cover of the book. The cover of this book was the cover that received the most votes.

    The KGB and the JFK case

    James, I don't know. You're asking a very good question. Executive order 13256 designates who may classify information. Rich

    The KGB and the JFK case

    Oh...I forgot. This small piece of information might be helpful. When LBJ visited Helsinki, his Russian counterpart suggested that if something were to happen to JFK it would help both Russia and LBJ. The Russians may have placed the seed in LBJ's mind to have JFK assassinated or if LBJ was already thinking about "Executive Action", this only served to reinforce the idea.

    The KGB and the JFK case

    Paul, Lee Oswald, while in Japan was identified as a strong candidate for the false defector program to the USSR. At the time, the United States policy was to try to back away from détente. So it was debated whether or not to just send intelligence information to Oswald and hope he would pass it on to the Soviet Union, or to pass that information to Oswald and tell him he was on a mission to the USSR as a false defector and his goal was to pass that information directly into the hands of the Russians. The US government was afraid if the information was just sent to Oswald, it might simply remain in Japan and never make its way to the USSR. The information led to the shooting down of the U-2 plane piloted by Gary Powers. Gary was a CIA asset and his plane was originally rigged to explode the moment he ejected from his plane. There was, of course, a technical glitch. The Soviets had no idea of the altitude the U-2 was flying and Oswald provided that information as well as other radar secrets. The goal was simple...Power's U-2 plane was supposed to be shot down, Powers was not supposed to survive, and the US would have an excuse to pull-out of talks with the Russians. Of course we all know that Oswald made it to the USSR, he gave the intelligence to the KGB and Power's U-2 was shot down. However, Powers lived and thus he remained a prisoner for two years before we made a spy exchange to get him back. Marina Nikolayevna's uncle was Ilya Prusakov, a colonel in the Soviet Ministry of Internal Affairs. Marina went to live with him after her mother died to study pharmacy. Marina had many boyfriends, two of which were also part of the CIA's false defector program. The KGB, who was watching Oswald's every move, arranged for Marina to meet Oswald at a dance. Two months later they were married and when Oswald applied to return to the US with his wife and new baby, the Soviet Union declined. Oswald then struck a deal saying that he would be an agent for the KGB and would relay reliable and actionable intelligence information back to the KGB if Marina and their baby were allowed to return to the US. The Soviets agreed. Contrary to some opinions, Oswald was debriefed by the CIA. Oswald became a paid informant for the FBI and he relayed information he became privy to back to the CIA. To say the least, it was a hot mess. It was the type of chaos that Oswald reveled in being apart of.

    The women of JFK

    Why do you care about the names of the women he had affairs with? In my book, I document 33 different affairs JFK had prior and during his tenure as president. Do you seriously want the names and pictures of all of these women? Rich

    Student Teacher Support

    One of the most important lessons a student teacher can learn is to be very careful about what you say during lunch in the teacher's lounge. Other teachers are going to gossip and speak negatively because part of decompressing is venting your frustrations. However, you must stay away from this particular practice because it will always come back to haunt you, with no exceptions. Even tenured teachers can lose their jobs. Tenure simply means a 90-day notice. So this advice should be followed for your entire career.
  11. The documents are real. They follow the correct protocol and format.

    The KGB and the JFK case

    The analysis that shows that originally, Russia wasn't going to allow Lee Oswald to take Marina out of the country and bring her back to the US. As it turns out, Oswald made a deal...he told the Russians that if they let him return to the US with his wife, he (Oswald) would continue to provide the KBG with intelligence information. The Russians agreed, the US paid the plane fare and viola...Oswald was back in the US.

    The KGB and the JFK case

    Michael, No, please. I like you and value your opinion. Obviously I'm misunderstanding you. But it isn't past employment. Once you're in, you're always in as any CIA officer will tell you. When searching for Bin Laden, we yanked so many "retired" people out of retirement and enlisted their help on finding Bin Laden it wasn't even funny. And they did it with no complaints. We needed their help and they really didn't have a choice.

    The KGB and the JFK case

    That's my offer. If your going to challenge my credibility and my source of livelihood, you should do more than just spout, "this is the internet" as if I somehow located an CIA employment status online and worked some Photoshop magic to make it refer to me. I figured you to be a stand-up guy and someone who wants the truth. So, I decided to make it easy for others to see what point of view I'm coming from. But you still don't want to take the time to prove my posting to be a fake. Maybe another person on this site will have the desire to do so. I was hoping it would be you because I trust you and your integrity but if you're not up to the job, I'll understand.

    Corsi's Book

    There was a shot to the back, which had no exit wound that would make the throat wound an exit wound as in the "Magic Bullet Theory". The throat wound was an entrance wound which the doctors used to perform a tracheotomy. So, Kennedy was shot four times. Once in the back, once in the throat. Two shots from the back, two shots from the front. This is completely consistent with Jonny Roselli's statement, "The first shot came from the Grassy Knoll and went through the windshield of JFK's limousine, hitting him in the throat. The second and third shots came from gunman Charles Nicoletti, a Giancana hit man, who was shooting from the third floor of the Dal-Tex building behind JFK." Roselli claimed the second shot hit JFK in the back and the third shot hit Connally. Finally, according to Roselli, the fourth shot fired and the second shot from the grassy knoll was the fatal headshot that killed JFK. At some point, however, Roselli claims the kill shot came from the storm drain with a .45

    Michael, There is no pleasing you or I guess anyone. If you can find ANYTHING like this on the Internet, then get back in touch with me. In fact, I'll personally give you $1,000 reward if you can find anything like this online. BTW...It is a felony to impersonate a CIA officer. So, if I were lying and faking a federal document, I would be put in a federal prison pretty quickly. Rich

    Michael, Thanks for point that out to me. Sometimes I forget that I've posted something. Rich

    My source comes from a DIA analysis report and my own dealings as an employee of the CIA. Notice if you look, the watermark in the paper. This is an employee copy but the paper has the United States Seal as a watermark.

    The KGB and the JFK case

    The Russians had nothing to do with the assassination. They did however, allow Lee Oswald to return to the states with his new Russian bride and their new child because Oswald promised to feed them intelligence information. And since the information Oswald had already fed the Russians with respect to the U-2 program, the Russians felt he would prove to be a credible source. Of course when Oswald had made his way back to the states, the CIA cut him off because they had already used him for his purpose as a participant in the false defector program. Marina herself was KGB but it wasn't working out well because Oswald and Marina lived separately. Oswald in a room in a boarding house and Marina with Ruth Paine who by the way, Ruth's sister was CIA.

    Cliff, It is my understanding the shots from behind were round tipped and the shots fired from the front were full metal jackets.
