  1. Vince, I just finished reading your book, Survivor's Guilt (2013). I should have read it long ago. Here are just a few of my remarks: Chapter 2: A "Hot" City Goes "Cold"; No Threats. Here is the main crux of the matter, to me. The Secret Service PRS (Protective Research Section) provided three separate reports, as you said in your opening sentence. Never was any threat reported for Dallas -- where UN Ambassador Adlai Stevenson had been struck on a Dallas street, and spat upon on October 24, 1963. As Chris Cravens wrote (1993), that WANTED FOR TREASON: JFK handbill circu
  2. Bill, Jason Ward and I have a web site in which we have been developing the WC testimony of Dallas Police, Deputies, and the Dallas FBI and Dallas Secret Service. Here it is: https://www.ciadidnotkilljfk.com/ Forrest Sorrels is, in my current reading, the dirtiest of office holders in Dallas, vis-a-vis the JFK Assassination. The White House Secret Service relied almost entirely on the local Dallas Secret Service agent, Forrest Sorrels, for their perception of Dallas -- and IMHO he deliberately deceived them in coordination with FBI agent James Hosty, Robert Alan Surrey a
  3. Joe, By the numbers again -- (1) The person who actually struck Adlai Stevenson on the head with her poster was a well dressed older woman. When Adlai asked her why she did it, her reply was, "Well, everybody else here knows why -- why don't you know?" The key in my opinion is that Dallas was itself a bastion of the Radical Right. Oil billionaire H.L. Hunt was a heavy financier of the John Birch Society. Another Dallas socialite on Radical Right was the academic giant, Robert Morris, president of the University of Dallas (who was a former attorney supporting Joe McCar
  4. Joe, by the numbers again: 1. Thanks for raising Dallas Deputy Roger Craig in this context. Despite problems, I accept most of his testimony. Yes, Sheriff Decker was involved up to his neck. He expected total obedience from his men, and he got it. After all, he was the man who got Bonnie and Clyde. He was a legend in Dallas. Nobody was going to cross him -- except Roger Craig. In my humble opinion, Craig was killed by the same Dallas plotters who killed JFK. 2. In my opinion, Decker and Hosty were among the super right-wing residents of Dallas. They were very close to Dalla
  5. Joe, By the numbers: 1. I interpret James Hosty having lunch during the JFK motorcade as a sign of his contempt for JFK. He claimed he loved JFK (Assignment Oswald, 1996) but he had to say something to his son, who helped him write his book. His son probably didn't want to hear how much Hosty liked General Walker and Robert Alan Surrey. In my reading, James Hosty "turned" in order to follow them. They belonged to high Dallas society along with H.L. Hunt and Robert Morris. All these people despised JFK. 2. Hosty repeatedly insisted (Assignment Oswald, 1996) that he had no r
  6. Vincent, Extremely interesting material. I should have obtained your first book long ago. I fixed that tonight with an amazon order. I'm impressed by your citation of White House Secret Service (SS) Inspector Thomas Kelley, which came to us through the FBI, five days after the JFK Assassination, at 10:30 AM. Some woman, who refused to give her name, said she had attended several Dallas speeches by Forrest Sorrels. She said that Sorrels showed no inclination to protect JFK. She said Sorrels was plainly "against the Kennedy administration." Evidently she was a Democrat, because
  7. Hi David, Thanks for your interesting information about Dallas Secret Service agent Forrest Sorrels. I clicked on the link you provided, and I read the parts you cited, and a bit earlier and later. GREAT DOCUMENT. Here's some of my feedback: 1. Sorrels' refusal to talk with the HSCA is valuable information, IMHO. 2. I'm not interested in Jack Ruby. IMHO Ruby was an afterthought for the JFK plotters, because Oswald was supposed to be killed in Oak Cliff -- not J.D. Tippit. 3. I'm not interested in the Cellar Coffee House scandal of the Secret Service. IMHO -- havi
  8. Thanks, Joe. I like your line of thought here. I'm seeking data that links Hosty and Sorrels, here. I think they worked together -- and any data that can show how closely they worked together from 1953 to 1963 in Dallas would be very interesting to me. I didn't see your earlier post, however, about, Hosty saying, "We had three of them -- Ford, Russell, and..." What was the question Hosty was answering? I agree that Hosty was more faithful to others than to his WC oath -- but I don't think the others were the FBI. Hosty totally trashes the FBI in his book, Assignment Oswal
  9. I find Dallas FBI agent James Hosty's 1964 Warren Commission testimony strangely inconsistent with his 1996 book, Assignment Oswald (1996). Yet, if Dallas FBI agent James Hosty is suspicious, then Dallas Secret Service agent Forrest Sorrels is equally so. James Hosty began his full-time FBI work in Dallas in 1953. Forrest Sorrels began his full-time Secret Service work in Dallas in 1941. The first month that Hosty moved to Dallas, he met his counterpart -- Forrest Sorrels, who had already been living in Dallas for a dozen years. They had worked closely for ten years before JFK
  10. Hi Pamela, I wouldn't use the word "pushing" here. I find plenty of evidence for claiming that the theme of V.V. Kostikov and his alleged plot with Lee Harvey Oswald to assassinate JFK is repeated continually in Hosty's text in Assignment Oswald (1996). I'll illustrate by citing just a few pages which reference Kostikov: page 48 LATE OCTOBER 1963 . Jeff Woolsey, Immigration Naturalization Services (INS) asked Hosty: "How about Oswald in Mexico City contacting the Russians?" . Hosty cites an FBI memo of 10/18/1963 citing earlier CIA records, saying that Oswald was
  11. Thanks, Michael, for verifying my claim here. I will make a further claim. James Hosty would "unequivocally deny ever having made the statement to Lieutenant Revill or to anyone else that, 'We knew Lee Harvey Oswald was capable of assassinating the President of the United States, we didn't dream he would do it.' " In that denial, Hosty merely denied stating those exact words. I believe Hosty there, because newspaper journalists sometimes make stuff up when they don't have the exact wording. Besides, Dallas Police Lieutenant Jack Revill never said at any time, in writing or
  12. That's interesting, Pamela. Have you read Assignment Oswald (1996) by James Hosty? Do you agree that this conspiracy theory by James Hosty appears in the book from the first chapter to the last chapter?
  13. Hi Pamela, I have two specific questions for you -- a scholar who has interviewed James Hosty personally. 1. What is your opinion about Dallas Police Lieutenant Jack Revill, who claimed in WC testimony, and in a 11/22/1963 memo to his boss, Captain Gannaway, that James Hosty told him personally on 11/22/1963 that the FBI knew that LHO was a danger to JFK, but held this back from Revill and others pledged to protect JFK? 2. What is your opinion about James Hosty's conspiracy theory about Soviet Embassy consul Kostikov and Lee Oswald in a plot to kill JFK? All best, --Pa
  14. Hi Pam, Over the years of this thread, I've done further reading and research. Chris Newton changed my approach quite a bit when he found for everybody that 10/18/1963 FBI memo that James Hosty (Assignment Oswald, 1996) claimed that he saw just a few days after it was published. Here it is: https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=61074&search=Kostikov_and+Cable+and+orleans#relPageId=3&tab=page So -- I had to take back my claim that the FBI memo never existed. I'm not embarrassed, and I thanked Chris Newton back then, and I thank him today, too. It was a gr
  15. Well, it's been two and a half years since I started this thread. I am returning to it for a number of reasons. First, I want to emphasize that I challenged writers here to produce the 10/18/1963 CIA memo that James Hosty claimed that he saw (cf. page 48 of his book, Assignment Oswald (1996). Within a couple of weeks, Chris Newton produced that CIA memo. Great work, I said, and still say. In the interim (in other threads on this Forum) I have moved on to the book by Oleg Nechiporenko, Passport to Assassination: The Never-Before-Told Story of Lee Harvey Oswald by the KGB Colon
  16. Cory, The photos are stills from the well-known Bell Film, showing the Dallas Records Building as JFK drove by. What the new release shows is the larger exposure of those same photos, showing the second story of the Dallas Records Building as JFK drove by. For 55 years, NARA has distributed the cut photo, showing only the first floor of the Dallas Records Building as JFK drove by. Finally -- after 10/26/2017, we can see the second story. The second story shows two gunmen with rifles standing at the windows of the Dallas Records Building as JFK drove by. Jason Ward
  17. Mervyn, My theory about Jack Ruby is entirely summarized by Seth Kantor, a reporter who was also a witness for the Warren Commission. His book is entitled, Who Was Jack Ruby (1978). Have you read it? Kantor had known Jack Ruby in Dallas for years. Kantor is a reliable witness, in my view. He swore under oath that he saw Jack Ruby at Parkland Hospital within minutes after JFK was killed. I believe him. The Warren Commission did not believe him. Anyway -- to make a long story short -- Seth Kantor says that Jack Ruby was too scatter-brained to be trusted in any cons
  18. Hi Cory, I've been away from the Education Forum for the better part of a year. I've been following only snippets from the release of records of President Bush's 1992 JFK Records Act deadline, i.e. October 26, 2017. Some of the most interesting records releases include never-seen-before photographic evidence of armed Dallas Deputies and Police at the DalTex building, snooping out of windows as JFK passed by. Have you seen that? This speaks directly to my long-time CT of a Radical Right conspiracy in Dallas by Dallas residents. The most famous and vocal of those Right-w
  19. Rich, I maintain that this supports my theory that the Dallas Radical Right killed JFK. I suspect as many as 12 shooters, mostly from Dallas -- all volunteers with no money allowed for any shooter. The main motivation for the shooting was therefore political and ideological. This would attract people from all over the USA, Mexico and Europe, obviously. There were dozens of players -- and the official CIA was in the dark. The FBI should have been on top of it -- and I believe the FBI knew far more about it than we have currently seen revealed. In any case -- the telli
  20. Rich, You've take the words of Lee Harvey Oswald (LHO) at face value. That's your error. Although LHO couldn't drive, that does NOT mean that he took the bus everywhere, even to Ex-General Walker's house for the April 10, 1963 shooting. We have Mexico City Immigration records that demonstrate that LHO rode into Mexico and out of Mexico as a passenger in a car. We have an eye-witness to a discussion between Loran Hall and Larry Howard in Southern California, making arrangements to be the chauffeurs of LHO from New Orleans to Mexico City, and then to Dallas. LHO had people
  21. Mark, I was very busy at work yesterday, and had no time to login to the Forum to see your posts. That's the only reason I didn't make those corrections yesterday. This morning I awoke to a special message from James Gordon explaining your many complaints yesterday. That's how I found out. Anyway, I made those corrections just now. I'm trusting that this will be satisfactory. It was just a mistake, Mark. I meant nothing personal by it. Sincerely, --Paul Trejo
  22. Mark, I apologize for conflating your name with that of Michael Clark. You're right -- it was Michael Clark who posted those four CIA-did-it videos about the RFK assassination. I mistakenly assumed that you were still pressing for an RFK detour. Again, sorry for the confusion. I have changed my previous post to reflect the facts. Sincerely, --Paul Trejo
  23. Mark, I did not intend to insult you. Sorry for the confusion. I raised the issue of RFK strictly within the context of a Letter by General Walker on the week after the RFK Assassination. General Walker spoke about the assassinations of JFK and RFK, and said that if Oswald had not been freed on April 10, 1963, that both JFK and RFK would still be alive. That was the context. I was not attempting to change the topic to the details of the RFK Assassination -- nor trying to insult you. I apologize for any confusion. Sincerely, --Paul Trejo
  24. Dallas Mayor Earle Cabell has had no place on this thread so far simply because Earle Cabell gave the WC so little information. Jim Garrison considered Earle Cabell interesting mainly because his brother, Charles Cabell was a ranking officer of the CIA. In Garrison's late CIA-did-it CT, he naturally named the Cabell brothers, because JFK had fired Charles Cabell after the Bay of Pigs screw-up. IMHO, Charles Cabell bore a great deal of the blame for the Bay of Pigs, so JFK dealt correctly. In any case, I would be astonished if Dallas Mayor Earle Cabell wasn't an informant for th
  25. Evan, It's interesting that you've read the 26 volumes of the Warren Commission -- not many people have done that. I've also done that in the past quarter century, and here's my take on it: 1. All of Lee Harvey Oswald's family told the truth in their WC testimony. This includes Marina Oswald. 2. All of the Russian Emigre's told the truth in their WC testimony. At the worst, George De Mohrenschildt held back on matters he knew but nobody asked him about those. 3. All of the childhood character witnesses of Lee Harvey Oswald told the truth. 4. All the Marines
