  4. The production reminds me of Finding Bigfoot 'documentaries' .
  5. WOW. Is this amateurish and lame. The story is titled 'declassified files' but they are wandering Mexico City, looking at buildings 50 years after the fact & making wild statements. And NOTHING to back any statement up. So far it is crap.
  6. I thought this was a joke at first . . . George H.W. Bush honored by JFK Foundation ------------------------------ http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/05/04/us-usa-kennedy-bush-idUSBREA4308G20140504 (Reuters) - Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush showed courage in breaking his "read my lips: no new taxes" campaign pledge to broker a 1990 budget compromise that may have cost him re-election two years later, the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation said on Sunday.
  7. Wasn't Garrison also working on decoding messages? "When Orleans Parish, Louisiana, District Attorney Jim Garrison sought to make a name for himself by implicating various people in the assassination of President Kennedy, one of the claims he made was the translation of “P. O. 19106” from Lee Oswald’s notebook into Jack Ruby’s unlisted Dallas phone number. The problem was, the scheme was too elaborately tailored to this specific translation." http://specularphoto.com/blog/2012/08/06/the-codebreakers/
  8. Try : http://jfk.ci.dallas.tx.us/ and then slelect a box to look through. Office of the City Secretary / Dallas Municipal Archives John F. Kennedy/Dallas Police Department Collection In 1989, and later through City of Dallas Ordinance 92-0438, the Dallas Police Department transferred to the Dallas Municipal Archives, Office of the City Secretary, all police records relating to the assassination. These records have been available to researchers since the transfer. The collection contains 11,406 documents and photographs, including homicide reports, affidavits, witness statements, newspa
  9. You know the 3D software they always use to validate the SBT? Did you ever look at the path from the sniper's nest to the Tague curb? Assuming the bullet flew straight, the bullet path would travel about 20 feet over the limo and cross Elm about where Elm merges with Main. How could a sniper miss that badly, yet, in theory, hit JFK twice. I bet if you plotted all the possible bullet paths from the Tague curb to a point about 1/2 foot over JFK as he moved down Elm - and extended the line to the TSBD and Dal-Tex, I bet it would show the shot had to come from the Dal-Tex, likely the 2nd floor
  10. - Time Inc. sold the original film and its copyright back to the Zapruder family for the token sum of $1. - In December 1999, the Zapruder family donated the film's copyright to The Sixth Floor Museum, - The Zapruder family no longer retains any commercial rights to the film, which are now entirely controlled by the museum. Not sure someone couled sell an original Zapruder film or a copy , if they do not own the copyrights.

  12. Apparently, this is not the first sellout for PBS Nova. All one has to do is look at the bottom of the Nova/Cold Case website : NOVA is provided by David H. Koch. Nova presented a Koch-funded show denying climate change, and loyal viewership revolted and called them on it. So much for the "liberal media" ! Even PBS can be bought and sold. NOVA is provided by David H. Koch, NOVA is en PBSprovided by David H. Koch, NOVA is provided by David H. Koch,ewership
  13. I thought the science in this show was very good. They show the stability of the bullet and how it travels thru matter. They were able to give a reasoned explanation for the path of the tumbling bullet . And how the bullet does not deform. But they cherry-picked the facts and ignored others. They show a bullet hole thru JFKs jacket about 4 inches below the collar, but then use a diagram with a bullet hole up at the base of the neck. They say there is about 1.6 seconds between JFKs reaction and Connelly's reaction, but then do not account for that time difference in their SBT diagram. A
  14. JFK: The Smoking Gun A link for this show says : Five Kennedy Conspiracy Theories Debunked by JFK: The Smoking Gun . . . .presents a straightforward, plausible and logical solution to this long unsolved mystery, many of the ideas that theorists come up with seem quite unlikely. Ballistics expert Howard Donahue and veteran police detective Colin McLaren came to conclusions which are simple and don't rely on unsubstantiated claims, and audiences will get a glimpse of the processes they used when JFK: The Smoking Gun premieres Sunday, November 3rd. As for all those off-the-wall conspiracy
  15. The author, Brian Latell, made a point of saying he has no evidence that Castro order the assassination, just that he had advance knowledge. “I don’t say Fidel Castro ordered the assassination, I don’t say Oswald was under his control. He might have been, but I don’t argue that, because I was unable to find any evidence for that,” he said.
