  1. One thing that I recently thought of if, it was applicable to the films showing Prayerman is more or less a substitution of the seemingly? impossible task of computer enhancement of said footage. I hope someone well versed in the field of video technology reads this, before the idea is summarily dismissed by non-experts. Colorization....I know enough about the technology to realize cinematographers will colorize B&W films, using actual color photos of a certain area or event. Does anyone else think this is a applicable area. If so or even if not, I would be curious to see what people thi
  2. Persons interested in this thread may also want to take a look at CE 167, it is a photo prior to the beginning of Lee Oswald's funeral. A Navy officer can be seen quite clearly, I even posted it on my facebook page... https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1429796353902242&set=pb.100006156731382.-2207520000.1443031575.&type=3&theater I have also posted a genealogy link to Thomas Hilmon Bookout http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=cmd&id=I1235 At first I was thinking about James Bookhout, the FBI agent....but as you can see the spellings indicate tw
  3. July 21, 1998 Amarillo Globe Longtime Dallas police reporter dies The Associated Press DALLAS (AP) - Johnny Rutledge, a longtime police reporter for The Dallas Morning News whose white Stetson often caused others to mistake him for a lawman himself, died Sunday. He was 74 and had battled emphysema and throat cancer for five years, The News reported. Rutledge covered Jack Ruby's killing of Lee Harvey Oswald, the man suspected of assassinating President Kennedy, in 1963. He was called to testify as a prosecution witness at Ruby's trial, said his son, Daniel M. Rutledge of Bryan, because
  4. Nice to see you hereabouts......After all the time in the old days we discussed John Hurt, I eventually started buying up old books on cryptology, as well as James Bamford's works. While this isn't addressing the topic of this thread. I believe one of the dynamics of the assassination, has to do with a generation gap, ie The Greatest Generation vs The Best & The Brightest. The former, I believe felt JFK didn't pass their litmus test for what constituted leadership. I might add thank God, he didn't because if he had listened to the JCOS and their ilk, the world, as we know it, Cuban Missile
  5. Additionally Jack died soon after his book was published; I consider that a great loss, as well.
  6. You could say this is a addendum of sorts to the whole issue of Finland, as some of us remember LBJ as VP went on a Northern Countries diplomatic goodwill mission in September of 1963, where, he was in Finland, players [at one time] Ambassador to Finland Carl Rowan, his press attache Edward J. Savage, others John D. Hickerson and Finnish Amb. to the United States Richard Seppala. Of all dates...... September 11, 1963 LBJ's driver while he was in Finland Klaus Bertil Granblom [of Finland] died in an automobile accident. The newspaper coverage of that day Fort-Worth Star Telegram 9-11-63
  7. What if Oswald's missing third letter was the one that Shanklin told Hosty to burn after the assassination? Hmmmm....
  8. Jim, reading what you wrote reminded me of what Jack Ruby said when the Warren Commissioner's visited his jail cell before he died. Not sure if it is verbatim, but it was something along thelines of.....I am as innocent as all of you gathered here. Sarcasm?

  10. Some time after the events in Dallas, Senator Thomas Dodd was investigated and, I believe even censured by his fellow Senator's. There was a book written about this and although the name escapes me, the Saturday Evening Post and Jack Anderson gave quite a bit of attention to this. In the Saturday Evening Post series of articles that were written, which, I believe was actually excerpts from the then forthcoming book, it was alleged that Dodd had a former FBI agent on his staff and that Dodd had connections to the West German government, i.e. Julius Klein and a Dr. Carstens. Although this po
  11. One thing I felt fairly certain about after viewing the aforementioned JFK program, was that there was more than one railroad worker, and/or man with hardhat that was regarded bythe police as a suspect. Then awhile later after posting on this thread, I stumbled onto a passage from "No More Silence," containing an interview with Union Terminal Railroad employee Clemon Earl Johnson [pps. 79-83]. Since I can't write up the entire section, I will say....He mentions himself, S.M. Holland, Dodd, Sam Cox, Dudley Neath, two boys named Potter, Simmons, "Doc" Halbert and "others." The key portion of
  12. Tom, you seem to have a premise for your idea. See Below San Diego Union-Tribune, The (CA) - November 16, 1995 Deceased Name: CAPT. DAVID A. SOOY Pioneering Navy flier, 92 Capt. David Aubrey Sooy , a pioneering Navy aviator who developed land for shopping centers and custom homes after a 30-year military career, died on his 92nd birthday Nov. 5 at Scripps Memorial Hospital-Encinitas. Capt. Sooy , who died of natural causes, was credited with making the first night landing on the carrier Saratoga in 1931. He also was among Navy aviators whose trick maneuvers in public performances p
  13. The threat Jim Di Eugenio mentioned did not go un-noticed here on the Forum, I updated it, for those who forgot about it.
  14. For Jim DiEugenio's new thread. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2007/07/04/353992/-Bizarre-1979-plot-to-Assassinate-President-Jimmy-Carter#
  15. The book below, was initially written by Gisevius after World War II and the Nuremberg verdicts were recorded; the foreword was written by Allen Dulles. To the Bitter End: An Insider's Account of the Plot to Kill Hitler, 1933-1944 By Hans Bernd Gisevius When the book was reissued it contained some updated material by Prof. Peter Hoffmann, who has written extensively about the resistance movements against Hitler. Ironically, Hoffmann is associated with McGill University, which said institution has more than a casual connection to the world of JFK lore. http://www.mcgill.ca/history/pet
  16. Paul Trejo: I never had a copy of the book, knew nothing about it until you mentioned it on the Forum. Don't have any knowledge about the author.
  17. FWIW: 1. WESTER, JANE CAROLYN Found in: Mary Ferrell's Database (120-123) Registered nurse in Parkland Hospital's O-R. Shared her home with nurse Diana Hamilton Bowron, an English nurse. Wester "received a phone 2. BOWRON, DIANA HAMILTON Found in: Mary Ferrell's Database registered nurse at Parkland Hospital. Native of England. She answered an ad and came to Dallas 8/4/63.

  18. I've been to the 6th Floor Museum once or twice, and had exchanged emails with him more than a couple of times, but I never ran into him there. I feel sad. Requiem aeternum. As for the CT/LN debate, one doesn't understand how the world works to expect a curator of the 6th floor museum, to constantly be quotedas saying "LHO didn't do it," and still be in that position for more than a day. That is just the way things are, like it or not. I certainly believe he was a good man, and the museum will be hard pressed to find anyone who can even come close to replacing him.
  19. Here's George Michael Evica's article Perfect Cover A Theory of the JFK Assassination: What Happened on November 22, 1963 By George Michael Evica Based upon a work in progress: The Iron Sights: New Evidence and Analysis in the Assassination of J.F.K. (From The Assassination Chronicles Volume 1, Issue 4, December 1995) Security stripping of the president on a massive scale occurred on November 22nd, 1963. From Love Field (where the motorcade was “re-organized”) to Dealey Plaza (a model of insecurity) the president was rendered mortally vulnerable. The deliberate security strip
  20. Then there were about 30 some odd documents pertaining to Oswald in the HT/LINGUAL files, also like systematically being filed in another section. Those files are very interesting as well. I know when the CIA and Nixon were going back and forth over the Huston Plan, was when J Edgar Hoover supposedly started getting really freaked out and wasn't much later when he turned up dead. I wonder; the Nixon quote "that fellow, Hunt knows too damn much," wouldn't take a rocket scientist to note the same fact about Hoover.
  21. I, at one time owned a copy of the book by Gary Wean, to me the book was not very credible...I never found any newspaper stories regarding Decker, Tower and Audie Murphy's trip to Mexico; not to say it didn't happen, but if there was an actual relationship between Decker and Audie Murphy, the Texas newspapers wouldn't have a reason to keep it a secret years before the JFK Assassination. Wean's book made extensive use of the word "Mishpucka." It seemed too much to me. The "Mishpucka," in Wean's account seemed to control practically Western civilization. The same sort of farce that the Gemstone
  22. Captain Will Fritz died on April 19, 1984. The author of The Kennedy Mutiny does not appear to have a very high profile, has anyone ever interviewed him? What's the deal with his name? Pseudonym, Coincidence.... Don't misunderstand my interest as shooting at the messenger. For one thing one of my favorite researchers George Michael Evica apparently, as many others took a keen interest in a false assassination attempt,[with the knowledge of JFK] as part of a "orchestrated event" that was piggybacked into a real assassination........ So, years earlier I might have laughed the idea to sco
  23. I discovered something about Roger Craig a few days ago, that is worth mentioning his account of Oswald, or another Oswald was actually mentioned in the November 23, 1963 Fort Worth Star Telegram, and not months later..... Which tends to give him even more reliability as to his bona fides. He wasn't vindicated until years later in his account when Jesse Curry's book included the photo of him present in Dallas Police Headquarters.
  24. I saw Executive Action after it came out; But the assassination sequence, I don't even remember; could the film be from that movie?
