Paul Kuntzler's Washington Conference

Recommended Posts

From my sources -- this should generate some interest among researchers of the CT bent

and 'A' lot of gas for the Lone Neuter's amongst us!

MAJOR EVENT (S) MONDAY RE: JFK ASSASSINATION CASE

Two items I will add to the press release below. Jeff Morley of the

Washington Post is joining the panel to discuss his fascinating FOIA

battle with the CIA over 32 pages of documents that may clarify the

much speculated about connection between Lee Harvey Oswald and the CIA.

And US News World Report is running a major feature about the press

conference that will be on their website Sunday and on sale Monday. It

looks like we will have several TV crews at this point.

Did the U.S. Government Cover-up JFK Assassination Details?

Five renowned experts present new findings in DC

WASHINGTON, DC, May 15, 2006 - Five prominent John F. Kennedy

assassination experts will convene today at the Willard Hotel in the

nation's capitol to present new findings and make the case that the

U.S. government's investigation of the JFK assassination was replete

with errors and, most likely, a deliberate cover-up.

These experts will also raise an important question: Does the JFK

assassination 43 years ago (and the U.S. government's likely cover-up

of the details of that assassination) hold the key to regaining public

trust in government?

These five experts - appearing for the first time in a national forum

together - each have meticulously assembled key parts of a complex

puzzle that lead any objective observer to just one conclusion: that

the government deliberately covered up the details of the JFK

assassination and misled the American public.

For instance, one expert has assembled new photographic evidence that

raises substantial questions about whether the Zapruder film was

altered while in the government's possession. Others will present new

suggestions that a second brain was, in fact, used in an autopsy

cover-up.

A CBS poll on the 40th observance of the JFK assassination in 2003

indicated that only 10% of the American people believe The Warren

Report, while 74% think believe there was a cover-up. Many experts

believe that the U.S. government's mishandling of its investigation

of the Kennedy assassination began what is by now a deep inclination

for the American public to distrust it.

A Washington publishing company executive, Paul Kuntzler, hopes that,

by bringing nationally renowned JFK assassination experts together for

the first time to reveal important findings on the errors in how the

government handled the JFK assassination, Congress and the

administration will re-open the case in an effort to finally get to the

truth.

Kuntzler's company, Miller Reporting, has a proven record for

integrity in handling records and transcripts for government agencies

for more than 30 years. Ironically the records it transcribed for The

Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB) in 199

8 were the ones that

troubled him the most. They were the most exhaustive attempt at

reconstructing the evidence to date. And he is bringing together a

group of some of the nation's leading experts on the death of JFK to

help sort things out at a meeting at the Willard Hotel at 11AM on

Monday, May 15th.

"My belief is that our country has lost its way," Kuntzler said. "If

we could find out what happened in Dallas, it might help us to figure

out a way to regain a sense of trust in government." His concern is

that this may be a seminal instance in which the American government

lied to the American people.

"If it is possible for someone to assassinate a President in broad

daylight in a major American city, and then have the federal government

fake the autopsy evidence and conceal the nature of the crime itself,

then those who exercised that kind of power are emboldened to repeat

performances of that kind over and over again. The American people are

not unreasonable to suspect that that has happened to them many times

by now."

The ARRB was created by the JFK Records Act passed by Congress in 1992.

It had the unprecedented power to declassify documents and records held

by the CIA, the FBI, the Secret Service, and other agencies of the

government. Only the President could override its decisions.

President George H.W. Bush opposed the legislation and, when it passed

over his opposition, refused to appoint its members, which had to await

the incoming Clinton administration.

The five experts Kuntzler will present include:

* James H. Fetzer, McKnight Professor at the University of Minnesota.

Fetzer has chaired or co-chaired four conferences on the death of JFK

and has published three books on this event: Assassination Science,

Murder in Dealey Plaza, and The Great Zapruder Film Hoax. Fetzer is

not surprised at the unprecedented level of public disbelief in the

Warren Report. "Considering that the crux of the government's

position, the 'magic bullet' theory, is not even anatomically possible,

it should be even higher."

* David W. Mantik, M.D., Ph.D., has worked with the tangled web of

inconsistent and contradictory medical evidence, including the autopsy

X-rays and photographs, for many years. "It's hardly surprising that

most Americans don't know what to make of this case," he observed.

"Even a Ph.D. in physics and an M.D. did not adequately prepare me for

this chaotic record. It was probably fortuitous that John Ebersole,

M.D., who was the officer in charge of radiology at Bethesda during the

autopsy, and I happen to have the same medical specialty, radiation

oncology. Otherwise, I might not have been able to figure out what

happened to the official records during the autopsy."

* Douglas Horne, the Senior Analyst for Military Affairs for the ARRB

who discovered the existence of records demonstrating the conduct of

two postmortem brain exams, described the experience of searching

through seemingly endless documents for a few nuggets of truth as

frustrating and exasperating. "This just may be the single most

bizarre case in the history of forensic science," he observed. "I can

certainly understand why Mr. Kuntzler has found this case the most

disturbing. I was there during the ARRB's search for records, but I

still find it challenging to take the case apart and put it together

and make all the pieces fit."

* Thomas Lipscomb, the noted journalist and publisher, was President of

Times Books, the New York Times book division when it published The

Final Report of the House Select Committee on Assassinations in 1979.

"As a young officer in charge of a US Army Rifle and Pistol Team at the

time of the Kennedy assassination," he said, "I was asked to try to

replicate the feats attributed to Oswald with a mail order carbine

exactly like his. I couldn't. But I feel a lot better now that no one

else has either, including teams at CBS and the Discovery channel." A

senior fellow at the Annenberg Center for the Digital Future, Lipscomb

has been investigating the authenticity of the photographic record,

including the Zapruder film, and has unearthed disturbing

discrepancies.

* Joan Mellen, a professor at Temple University, is the author of

Farewell to Justice, a new study of the trial of Clay Shaw brought by

New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, which led her to important

discoveries showing CIA and FBI involvement in the Kennedy

assassination "After going through thousands of documents released

since the Assassination Records and Review Act, and doing 1,200

interviews, I've learned that Jim Garrison had a host of suspects who

played a role in the implementation of the assassination of President

Kennedy. Like any criminal investigator, he sometimes found himself in

a blind alley. He would have been no investigator if that hadn't

happened. Yet he came up with the truth closer than anyone has before

or since."

I hope that regardless of what this experts says ... that he or she will have been throrough enough to address the grain tranfer issues, the contrast and color balance issues, and the other processes of enlarging film and then shrinking it back down that would be noticeable to a film expert. To date, these occurences have been overlooked by the alteration cult leaders ... I will be most interested to see if these issues are finally addressed or if this is just another instance of a photograph expert not knowing things that a film expert would know, thus wasting everyones time.

I had just finished listening to Jim Lessar and Jefferson Morleys interview on the Mary Ferrell sit and was about to start a thread asking what the outcome of the legal case was, what a coincidence.

Would anybody be able to record this press conference and upload it to the net? If someone can record it I will be able to upload it for all to see as I see it as a particularly important matter. George Joaniddes being a very interestng charatcer and possibly pivotal in the cover-up.

Once again if anybody gets a copy of the conference I will upload it for all to see.

All the best,

John

Cult, you into fanaticism these day's? Or just suffer from wishful thinking? -- And, its not called enlarging, it's blowup as in 8mm blowup to 35mm (exactly what Groden's mentor, Moe Weitzman did with the Zapruder in-camera 8mm original he received from LIFE, you're not disputing that are you?) --

For the time being; we await the Lone Neuter side of the Z-film fence and their determinations (Zavada and Fielding) we may be waiting much longer than we originally thought. (How about getting Colby to do his interfacing job, eh?)

Color issues? Does the term Wratten mean anything to you? If not google, and tell us, ALL of us what you find...

The legal case, if you are referring to Jeff Morley's, has not been decided. Indeed, I believe that the CIA's opposition to Morley's motion for summary judgment, is due Monday.

Cheers Bruce,

I' sure we all await the outcome of it. I was unde the impression that the press conference had something to do with Jeff Morleys case.

All the best,

It almost certainly does John. As I noted, and important CIA court filing is due tomorrow. Jeff has been relatively low key in the almost 3 years this case has been pending. I hope this appearance doesn't backfire by pissing off the federal judge, who might construe it as an effort to try the case in the press. On the other hand, perhaps he has concluded there is little to lose.

It looks like my side -- the CT side -- is becoming a bit more press savvy. I do not belive the timing of this is a coincidence, coming on the heels of the Ultimate Sacrifice documentary last Thursday, and Mark Furhman's LN book, which is generating some play in the press.

Bruce,

Do you know if Jeff is at all confident on the ruling? He was playing his cards close to his chest on the mary Ferrell website.

This could be a landmark case against the CIA's retention on documentation and could possibly open it up to media scrutiny, due to the fact that Jeff works for the Washington post online, he may have a few friends that be willing to publicise this.

To anybody else reading this I must say that the interview is well worth a listen, I put them on my ipod and go for a walk, killing two birds with the one stone.

Amen, Bill. If they are going to be talking about a second brain and Z-film alteration, then I hope they bring their "A" game and dearly hope it is at least plausible. Generally, I think that ANY publicity is good publicity because it raises the profile of this issue. Indeed, I'm pleased that Fuhrman is plugging his book for that very reason. What concerns me, though, is trumpeting extravagant assertions without a substantial factual basis. That makes it easy for the LN'ers to say, "see, the CT'ers are at it again ... just say no to their Kool Aid." In other words, it makes it easy to throw the baby out with the bathwater. There are enough uncontested facts to torpedo the WCR, and more emerging each day. We don't need to be piling on with what can be easily portrayed as X-Files sensationalism.

Jeff Morley strikes me as a sensible, cautious fellow, and my hope is that he senses what is coming and will not share a podium with apparent lunatics.

David W. Mantik, M.D., Ph.D.

(Editor's Note: This is an expanded and revised version of a presentation for "Solving the Great American Murder Mystery" Symposium, which was held at Duquesne University 20-23 November 2003. The speaker, who is the leading student of the death of JFK in the world today, has elaborated on the formal paper that he submitted for its appearance in this journal, while preserving the sequence of figures and photographs. The formal paper appears following the informal version as an appendix.)

Someone please tell Lipscomb to comment in the conference on Mark Fuhrman's nationally televised statement (made apparently on every one of the networks, promoting his book) that Oswald made "easy shots" in tiny little Dealey Plaza. Ask him to quote Carlos Hathcock also.

Cult, you into fanaticism these day's? Or just suffer from wishful thinking? -- And, its not called enlarging, it's blowup as in 8mm blowup to 35mm (exactly what Groden's mentor, Moe Weitzman did with the Zapruder in-camera 8mm original he received from LIFE, you're not disputing that are you?) --

I have already posted the definition of a cult as it pertains to this matter. Those who have read it and understand the English language probably understood it quite well. Those of you who have shown an inability to relate to words and phrases will have to remain in the dark. You will not distract me by foolishly attempting to get me into an argument over your opinion that the word 'blow-up' as it relates to a photograph is somehow totally different to the word 'enlarge' as it relates to a photograph.

blow-up: make bigger or wider in size, volume, or quantity; "expand the house by adding another wing"

enlarge: to become larger; grow. To give greater scope to; expand.

Color issues? Does the term Wratten mean anything to you? If not google, and tell us, ALL of us what you find...

Anyone can 'google' the definition of the word "wratten" ... just as someone can google the definition of "rocket scientist", but it doesn't make them knowledgable on how a rocket works under a specific influence. Surely you don't think these little piss-ant tactics of yours is going to fool anyone, let alone me. As usual you only glanced at the term and didn't look into it far enough to see how it would relate to the previous things I have mentioned concerning the tell-tale signs of film alteration. While something like a Kodac Wratten filter can be used to achieve spectral performance ... they do not prevent things like cross-color shifting and as with filters, you lose sharpness of the image. And it certainly resharpen the grain in the film once it has been "blown-up" or "enlarged" from a minature 8MM film frame to an 8 x 10" images as Jack White said would be done. I believe I mentioned these things in a previous post and I assume that you must have missed what I said because you were out running your mouth elsewhere.

As the 'Soup Nazi' said on Seinfeld .... "NO SOUP FOR YOU, NEXT!"
