  1. Bill: I am not aware that there were "lots" of folks who saw another film. The ones who have claimed to see it have been remarkably consistent. What variations are you making reference to? The Zapruder film does not show any "near stop" so what is it that you believe that these people saw? The witness (police officer) who relayed his account to me was and is well respected. Good luck. Doug Weldon
  2. Kathy: He was on Houston. He will be in my book. Best, Doug Weldon
  3. I have the highest respect for William Reymond and the late Rich DellaRosa. I believe they saw a filmas they described and I cannot conceive that someone could have "added" to the film so I believe their accounts are truthful. I have another first hand account from an officer in the motorcade who saw the limo stop. I do not believe he has been named before. Doug Weldon
  4. Jim: I don't know what Jerry's response might be but I believe it is clear that Oswald asked for an attorney but was not provided one as they(DPD) continued to interrogate him. I am not aware of a Texas statute but if there was one it was not being followed. Many people have been critical of the DPD not recording their conversations with Oswald. However, it remains a common police practice in many jurisdictions today NOT to record interrogations. Best, Doug Weldon Even so, it's intriguing to know that a stenographer was present at the original interviews of Leon Czolgosz (McKinley's
  5. Jack: I do not believe there is any credible evidence that JVB ever "knew" LHO at all, yet for any period of time. As has been recounted there is evidence that JVB saw LHO on television and said toi her husband that he looks like a man she used to work with. Best, Doug Weldon
  6. Doug Weldon, after I read about the background of a federal judge's decision to free Ed Wilson several years ago, it strains belief that any of the federal lawyers who remained silent all those years Wilson was imprisoned, could still be members of the bar in good standing, let alone promoted by a U.S. president to sit as a judge on a federal appeals court, By the way, the OPR seems to have avoided dealing with this, although it was reported to be investigating. (see article images at the bottom of this post.) Tom: I totally agree with you. These prosecutors should be
  7. Jim: Thank you so much. I will read the article. As always, you provide very cogent criticisms and observations. I believe there is some value in the book and not everything should be dismissed. I will make some observations on LBJ in my book based on the evidence and some direct conversations with some people close to the White House at that time and there is a book on LBJ being written by a very competent and respected researcher.

  8. Robert: The Dark Side of Camelot is trash. PLEASE read Jim D's fine piece on all the disinfo about JFK's sex life. JFK's SEX LIFE had zero to do with his murder. I realize you're still a newbie on all this and eager to learn, so please do some further study before making such absurd pronouncements. Merci, Dawn Dawn: Where is Jim D's piece on JFK's sex life? I do believe it played a factor, though perhaps a small piece of the puszzle. I also believe there is value in Sy Hershes's and Barr McClennen's books. There are parts in each that I find significant. I also believe there is ev

  12. Hello Jim, I never practiced criminal law in Texas and I haven't done an in-depth study so take what I'm writing with a little extra salt. At the time I believe Texas had a two stage process following arrest. First, in a relatively short time after arrest, the police were required to present the detainee before a magistrate who would inform the person of the reason for their detention, usually the reason was they were being charged with a crime. At this proceeding no response was expected or required of the detained - it was simply a formal notice of the reasons for detention and the charges

  14. Jerry: What is interesting is that Miranda actually occurred before the assassination and Oswald would have been affected by the decision. People today might well have been read their "Oswald rights." What would have been interesting is whether if Oswald had been tried if it would have influenced the Supreme Court in their ruling. Best, Doug Doug! It's nice to see you're still checking the Forum. I hope the book is going well. I'm really looking forward to its publication. You're right - using a strictly rational/legal approach, Miranda should have applied retrospectively. Howeve

  18. There is a huge difference between saying that Nobel Prize winners "worked with you" and "IT DOES NOT SAY I MET THEM. IT SAYS I WAS WITH THEM, ATTENDED THE EVENT WITH THEM, NOT IN THE AUDIENCE. I SAT IN THEIR MIDST, RIGHT NEXT TO THE VICE PRESIDENT OF CANCER RESEARCH FOR THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY, DR. DIEHL. I ATE LUNCHES WITH THEM, WAS TUTORED BY THEM, THEY WERE FASCINATED WITH MY WORK AND ACTUALLY WENT TO MY HIGH SCHOOL TO CHECK MY WORK 9ALSO IN A NEWSPAPER OR YEARBOOK ARTICLE." Is Judyth suggesting that these Nobel Prize winners were so fascinated with her work that they took a spec
  19. She did NOT refuse. She agreed with stipulations. I am quite qualified, as you conceded, to conduct such an examination. Although you are probably more qualified, she does not "trust" you. She does not trust that you will be fair. She is concerned that she will be unfairly "ambushed" by you, if I am understanding her concerns correctly. I am not convinced that her concerns are well founded, but--I am also not convinced that her stipulations are motivated to deceive. I do not believe that she has provided adequate proof for many of her claims. However, I also do not understand how those who ch

  22. Oh boy, here we go again! First off, Doug--to what are you referring? Like I said, I think it is "possible" that the designated "patsy" was misled by his "handlers" --don't you? And, if so, it is possible that this was his impression. I have NO PROBLEM WITH THAT--and neither should you. However, I'm not saying that--if true--it corroberates Judyth's claims! It does nothing of the sort! It is POSSIBLE--and, in a sense, it is consistent with a patsy's role and (mis)understanding of their own misguided role. This story could have been easily invented by Judyth--no doubt--because it is entirely co
  23. Dean: Your effort is appreciated. I especially agree with your last statement. Judyth's story, most of all, should be subject to cross-examination. The offer was extended and she refused. Best, Doug Weldon
