Profile Information

  • Interests
    I research historical political and espionage related subjects related to television programs I'm currently involved with and have developed an interest in these subjects due to my family's background in the intelligence agencies. My grandfather was with OP-20-G in the Office of Naval Intelligence during WW2 and the Cold War and served on the staff of the Armed Forces Security Agency which was superceded by the NSA. He also served with Louis Tordella.

    Alternative Assassins (names)

    I'd be interested in ONI in China if any information is out on that.
  2. It's is a bit over the top to headline the piece "Direct influence and supervision by the DoD" by good ol red-pill Tyler Durden. To be sure they've had a heavy hand in some but a lot of the time it's a permission thing or they don't want to be involved with a script because of appropriateness or whatever. These days producers don't have to have the Navy allow them onto an aircraft carrier because it's easier to do digitally. The interesting thing to find out would be how many scripts get their financing killed before they get made...
  3. I believe Abt was interviewed and said he was out of town at the time, possibly on vacation.
  4. All the usual names and then some surrounding the CIA hit on Scientist Frank Olson. Crime Magazine article by HP Albareli Jr. http://crimemagazine.com/part-one-mysterious-death-cia-scientist-frank-olson?page=7 I'd really like to know about that. It's a long article and very involved. Seems like there's a small world of covert operators. I haven't read much about Sheffield Edwards who seems to be the guy everyone went to for cleaning up inconvenient people and subjects.

    I agree with Trump

    My point is that until something better is devised NATO has worked for several decades to LARGELY bring stability to Europe. Bumping up payments is fine but not required IMO. To suggest the UN could handle the differences that always arise in that region is about the same as turning it over to a barnyard full of sheep. A lot of bleeting and dashing about. The best chance I suppose would have been a successful EU but that's not on top of Putin's list either. Re Trump I want you to know that I've soloed an airplane which makes me more qualified to fly your next airline trip than Trump is qualified to run a democratic republic. The nonsense about bringing a new "perspective" to the job may be okay for advisers but I think we're better off without mobbed-up, narcissistic, sociopaths running the country. It showed in Helsinki as Putin, the professional, made the President look completely idiotic and out-classed. I shutter to think what went on behind closed doors... I hope the Trump apologists don't jump to defend him if he somehow sits down with a professional interrogator(s) like Mueller and his team. I've been in that position and those people are unbelievable at extracting information and probing testimony. I doubt he'd survive his presidency.

    I agree with Trump

    Jim: I'd imagine there are some people in Crimea that wished Ukraine was part of NATO. I realize the Russian "Citizens" who were retroactively granted passports (in the time honored European tradition) may not feel that way. I well understand why Putin/Russia are testy about "NATO-creep" but the fact is they've brought it on themselves. They got it the old fashioned way by earning it. Europe also includes Russia, Bulgaria, Poland, Romania, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Albania, The Ukraine etc (Warsaw Pact not strictly Eastern Bloc-splitting hairs I spose) and the specific charter of NATO was for a collective defense of the war torn allies. But that also included a proviso that any NATO member would be defended by the others, regardless of the aggressor. Either way, our presence there has stabilized the continent for the most part and my guess is that the investment has paid off nicely. Could they pay more? Sure. I'm not sure we're better off the way it is though (I admit it's debatable). After a decade or so of US hijinks Europe has done well in the last 30-40 years and it's not because of the former Soviet Union or Russia. Much of it has to do with the US playing the nanny I'm afraid.

    I agree with Trump

    Yup. James DiEugenio BTW, I also agree with him on NATO. Why do we need to foot the bill for them if there is no USSR or Eastern Bloc anymore? How about because until 1945 the Europeans have been slaughtering each other for hundreds of years? Go back through maps of Europe say four or five hundred years . If nothing else being there has kept us from having to pack our bags to go back again.

    JFK's Back wound

    So would you agree with the placement I've shown or disagree?
  9. Bob Ness

    JFK's Back wound

    None I suppose it's just that all of the animations and recreations I've run into over complicate the placement of the wound IMO.

    JFK's Back wound

    Just for drill I decided I'd map JFK's shirt onto the back of a model of a man in 3d. I think this is the best way to eliminate any arguments about bunched clothing and wound location. The reasons why are: By mapping the shirt onto his back I'm basically eliminating 90-95% of any errors introduced by adding additional models of a shirt and jacket. Under his jacket, his dress shirt would conform to his body very close to his skin and so by replacing the model's skin with the shirt the wound location should be within fractions of an inch of the actual location. The "control" portions of the shirt are the outer seams and base of the yoke and the collar (to a lesser degree). The yoke is the least distorted section of the image of the shirt I used. I don't think the collar is fully extended in the image so don't be deceived by that. I rendered 3 different images - placement 1 is what I think is the most accurate but I moved the shirt both up and down for 2 other placements. The numbers and the white and red areas are registration images used to align the original shirt. Let me know what you think - I'll probably mess around with it some more unless there's no interest in the effort haha.

    A question to David Lifton

    A stock 3d model of a man isn't his copyrighted material. It's somebody else's which he had permission to use but not copyright himself. The animation is but the animation isn't needed to check if the model was modified to fit his theory. In fact he could post a screen shot of the model and I can tell in 3/10's of a nano second if the model has been modified.
  12. Nosed around a bit and found out via Phillip Agee's book (Inside the Company) that Herbert was ex-FBI and as Deputy Director of WH/CIA covered for Ned Holman (his old FBI comrade) who was COS in Montevideo. Herbert may have been tied in with a Northwoods type project in Venezuela trying to frame up Cuba for supplying arms to rebels there just prior to the JFKA. I don't think Herbert was a alias.

    Desperate Measures in the Congo

    Agreed. Astronomical multiplier and I don't think that overstates it.

    Desperate Measures in the Congo

    Of course. Just follow the Uranium. Like Ron stated Katanga was the home of the largest and highest grade Uranium deposit on Earth and if I were in intelligence then, that fact would be of primary concern to me. Tshombe controlled Katanga and I would imagine the CIA would have backed whoever had control of those deposits regardless of their politics or affiliations... The Nazi's allegiance was unquestioned when it came to the Russians and so "the enemy of my enemy is my friend etc.." If you add it all up the CIA had all the hallmark ingredients of a sales pitch to just about any right leaning decision maker like Eisenhower that would dovetail nicely with other self-serving interests that Dulles likely had in mind. Commies, nukes, regional stability and those sorts of bullet points were an easy sale then and still are (maybe switch out Commies for Terrorists). I'm sure Kennedy and Hammarskjokd had a liberal sensibility toward elevating the situation and Congolese independence out of the nineteenth century. That could of have been successful as far as the Commies, nukes and stability goes but would produce major forehead slaps regarding everything else. They had to take him out before it was too late. I suppose I'm stating the obvious but to sum up I really think the Uranium is the key...
