  1. Mr. Davy, Thanks for the response and taking time to be here and answer questions because I have another one. In the chapter on PERMINDEX, you say that a French newspaper by the name of Les Échos may have ran a series of articles regarding PERMINDEX's possible connections to assassination attempts on Charles deGaulle's life. However, because you never saw the articles, you can't testify to their existence or veracity. In a footnote, you urge readers with any access to French newspaper archives to look for these articles. Since then, have you been able to locate or verify these articles? Thanks!
  2. Mr. Davy, Were you aware that Dave Reitzes wrote a rebuttal to your response of his review (I don't know if that made sense, this back-and-forth thing is confusing). Do you have any intention of writing another response? Here is Dave's response. http://www.jfk-online.com/davy1.html If you do choose to respond to him, good luck trying to make him understand sense.
  3. Prof. Mellen, I have a question regarding the Habighorst controversy. There is one thing about that whole incident that still bothers me. Why would Clay Shaw so stupidly admit that he had an alias, completely contrary to the advice of his lawyers who told him not to admit nor say anything? Thanks!

    Of Slings & Swivels

    This add has erroneously led many to the wrong clonclusions, which it would appear was intentional. Check the order form reportedly completed by LHO. It called for the "CT" on the numbers, which was for the 36 inch Carbine, and for which Kleins reportedly had received. The Warren Commission described the rifle like this: "The rifle...was a bolt-action, clip-fed, military rifle, 40.2 inches long and 8 pounds in weight."

    Beyond Conspiracy

    Do you know where I can find Richard Smith's analysis of the program?

    Gary Mack and the Sixth Floor Museum

    If Gary Mack's agenda is not to push a "pet theory," why is "Case Closed" in stock? If he wants to eliminate conspiracy books because he claims they promote an agenda, he must be made aware that that rule applies to lone guman books as well.

    Beyond Conspiracy

    Peter Jennings propaganda "Beyond Conspiracy" is on The History Channel. http://www.historychannel.com/global/listi...4&page=listings EDIT: Well, I guess you can watch half of it... I came to it right in the middle and didn't realize that it was two hours long.

    Official J.D. Tippit Website

    Officer J.M. Poe testified to marking the shells and his superior Sergeant Gerald Hill also testified that he told Poe to make "sure" that he marked the shells. In addition, Hill, when examining the shells determined that they were from a .38 automatic. It is difficult to claim that Hill was mistaken because .38 automatic shells are marked .38 AUTO at the bottom of them.

    1965 Indonesian massacre and the CIA

    We can add to the list of killed the hundreds of thousands killed by Suharto in his genocidal campaign against East Timor. Suharto's rise to power was a direct result of the 1965 Coup.

    Secret Government?

    I believe the the "secret government" referred to by this person is more along the lines of the "Shadow Government" discussed in this article: The Shadow Government

    Garrison biography

    Does anyone know if and when Joan Mellon's biography of Jim Garrison is coming out? The last I heard of it, she couldn't find a publisher. Since then, I haven't heard anything else. Are there any updates on it?

    Hiroshima: A War Crime?

    Of course it was a war crime; Harry Truman was the war criminal. Truman would not accept anything less than an unconditional surrender from the Japanese, despite the fact that Japan was frantically making attempts to end the war in any way possible, short of an unconditional surrender. The Japanese were only concerned in maintaining the status of the Emperor. Despite numerous peace proposals, Truman was convinced that only an unconditional surrender would be sufficient. The man who basically thought up the entire idea for an atomic bomb, Leó Szilárd, begged Truman's point man on nuclear matters, James Byrnes, to demonstrate the bomb's power on an empty target before turning it on civilians. Byrnes in a nutshell replied that all the money spent on creating the bomb could not be justified if it was not unleashed on Japanese cities. Truman gave the order that nuclear weapons should be used against Japan. Truman's decision clearly stemmed from hatred and bigotry of the Japanese people. Take a look at an excerpt from Truman's diary, dated July 25: "We have discovered the most terrible bomb in the history of the world. It may be the fire destruction prophesied in the Euphrates Valley Era, after Noah and his fabulous Ark. Anyway we "think" we have found the way to cause a disintegration of the atom. An experiment in the New Mexico desert was startling - to put it mildly. Thirteen pounds of the explosive caused the complete disintegration of a steel tower 60 feet high, created a crater 6 feet deep and 1,200 feet in diameter, knocked over a steel tower 1/2 mile away and knocked men down 10,000 yards away. The explosion was visible for more than 200 miles and audible for 40 miles and more. This weapon is to be used against Japan between now and August 10th. I have told the Sec. of War, Mr. Stimson, to use it so that military objectives and soldiers and sailors are the target and not women and children. Even if the Japs are savages, ruthless, merciless and fanatic, we as the leader of the world for the common welfare cannot drop that terrible bomb on the old capital or the new. He and I are in accord. The target will be a purely military one and we will issue a warning statement asking the Japs to surrender and save lives. I'm sure they will not do that, but we will have given them the chance. It is certainly a good thing for the world that Hitler's crowd or Stalin's did not discover this atomic bomb. It seems to be the most terrible thing ever discovered, but it can be made the most useful..." The "warning statement" was basically the routine "surrender or be utterly destroyed." Not surprisingly, the Japanese didn't surrender. The bombs at Nagasaki and Hiroshima killed at least 140,000 people and injured over 100,000 people, not to mention the fact that tens of thousands more would die from injuries and radiation poisoning within two years. On August 9, Truman delivered a speech to the American people about the use of the atomic bomb: "The world will note that the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, a military base. That was because we wished in this first attack to avoid, insofar as possible, the killing of civilians. But that attack is only a warning of things to come. If Japan does not surrender, bombs will have to be dropped on her war industries and, unfortunately, thousands of civilian lives will be lost. I urge Japanese civilians to leave industrial cities immediately, and save themselves from destruction." It is rather hard to believe that Truman actually thought that Hiroshima was a military base, considering that 90% of the people killed were civilians.

    Peter Jennings Dies

    Peter Jennings, the ABC news anchor who hosted the controversial special on the JFK Assassination has died. The 67 year old recently announced in April that he had been diagnosed with lung cancer. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/8864210/ http://abcnews.go.com/sections/wnt/US/JFK_poll_031116.html

    Was William Sullivan Murdered?

    Well, what did Robert Daniels have to say about the "accident?" Did he deny accidentally shooting his friend?

    The "power?" of the Presidency

    Democracy isnt what it used to be in America. This article pretty accurately details my feelings about who really holds power in this country. http://www.constitution.org/shad4816.htm
