  1. Would you be as bold when your children, spouse and other relatives are threatened if you broke silence?
  2. I read many years ago that Jack Dragna's driver made a death bed confession that he shot Bennie. No, I don't remember where I read it. https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-1997-06-20-me-5334-story.html
  3. "The blur analysis of Zapruder is gold for the timing of shots, ". Nope, it is the timing of the multiple volleys of shots from multiple locations by multiple teams of shooters via radio communication. Three volleys by three shooters adds up to nine bullets. There may have been as many as five different teams of shooters. What's the Connolly quote, "My God, they're trying to kill us all!" (?). Connolly claimed that he carried to his grave enough lead to disprove the SBT.
  4. A flawed set of answer options, as it is likely that LHO thought there was a fake assassination attempt being perpetrated.
  5. According to Oliver Stone, the Italian people rank the Manlicher Carcono rifle as the #1 reason Italy lost WWII. Chances are this marksman did not have a bent barrel version either, unlike the weapon that is claimed be owned by LHO.
  6. While I don't have a source, I do recall reading a Connally quote stating that he would carry enough lead in his body to disprove the SBT to his grave.
  7. Folks interested in this topic will find the two Ray Locker books, 'Nixon's Gamble' and 'Haig's Coup' to be quite informative. Highly recommended.
  8. In all of the dozens of books I have read about WWII, and the multiple bios of G.H.W.Bush, bombers were never described as 'fighters'. Only the most skilled pilots were assigned to true fighter aircraft like a P47 or a Hellcat. Lesser pilots flew bombers. There is a major difference between the two classes of war plane.
  9. +1. And, according to Madeline Brown, LBJ only found out the previous evening what was coming down in Dallas.
  10. IMHO, the idea that LBJ was the mastermind of the assassination is simply a 'limited hangout' to deflect attention from the real guilty parties; who lie within the highest levels of the Military Industrial complex.
  11. From the interviews I have seen, Young Frankenstein was Gene Wilder's baby that he brought to Mel after Blazing Saddles. If you have a chance to watch it now in HD, pause the film and do a frame by frame advance when they are at the doors of the castle (what magnificent knockers!). There is a mural embedded in the wall to the right of the doors depicting the final scene with the apes in 'History of the World, part II'.
  12. It's heard when Bart re-unites with his railroad companions. IIRC, the reply was, "And you heard right".
  13. I have wondered for many years if things actually played out in the following manner: One of the original goals of the JFK assassination was to justify an invasion of Cuba. But, according to Richard Case Nagel, the plot had been penetrated by Soviet intelligence well before Dallas. The Soviets then ordered Nagel to kill LHO, which Nagel refused to do. Then, almost immediately after JFK was killed, a very high level Soviet intelligence officer communicated to his opposite number in the U.S. that any attempt to blame Castro for the crime would result in the Soviets revealing all they k
  14. Folks interested in this subject will find the book, "Haig's Coup" quite revealing.
  15. Re: "Giancana was also quoted as saying, "There were three people who knew who shot Kennedy. Now there are only two and we're not talking" after the death of Jimmy Hoffa." This quote has long been attributed to Santos Trafficante, including by his attorney Frank Ragano. Just because something is printed in a book doesn't mean it is necessarily true. Never once, in all the bios of Mooney or books on the Outfit that I have read, have I ever (before today) seen this quote linked to Sam. It might have been Bill Kelly who many years ago compared the JFK hit to an onion. After years
  16. I saw a TV show, maybe 'Myth Busters', where they interviewed the NYT editor who was a witness to the Gallo hit. When shown a picture of Sheeran she stated that he was the hit man she saw.
  17. After much speculation, there is now DNA confirmation that Jack's real name was Aaron Kominsky. This has been known to Scotland Yard for decades. https://www.amazon.com/Naming-Jack-Ripper-Russell-Edwards-ebook/dp/B00NHLL062/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=naming+jack+the&qid=1564078674&s=gateway&sr=8-1
  18. Personally, I continue to lament Richard Nixon blowing off Castro after Fidel came to power, which drove him straight into the arms of the Russians.
  19. "I do not think that Roselli owned that racetrack where Sirhan was a walker.I do not think that Roselli owned that racetrack where Sirhan was a walker." IIRC, It was Mikey Cohen who owned the track.
