  1. Sandy, I don't believe Marina's husband was working for any intelligence agency. Nonetheless, the fact Marina's husband got a job at the Texas School Book Depositary is extremely suspicious. It's too convenient. It supports the idea he acted spontaneously in shooting JFK. I work backward. JFK was killed on Elm Street. What led up to that? Quite some planning, I believe. Then I work forward. JFK was killed on Elm Street. Why hasn't the truth of his killing been told? The elegant solution is that Oswald did it, acting alone. I believe, and I could be wrong, the elegant solution is s
  2. Paul, The NOLA photos in which I'm interested are the photos of June. As someone else has written, June knew who was taking her photograph, given her pose and attitude.
  3. Paul, Here's the point of my question: When was JFK first struck? From where? By what? I'll leave it at that. The debate here is based mostly on opinions, not facts. Let's have verifiable facts.
  4. Facts are paramount. To all here: What are the verifiable facts?
  5. Peter Dale Scott made a big deal of drug-running in "Deep Politics", a terrific book IMO. Did drug-running have something to do with JFK's murder? I don't know. I do know first-hand that drugs poured into South Viet Nam. The drugs came from the "Golden Triangle", or whatever. A lot of American G.I.s got hooked on pure heroin. A lot of money was made in South Viet Nam and the U.S. from those drugs. Drugs played a big role, a huge role, in America's effort in Viet Nam. There have been books written that assert the Bushes got into the drug game. There even has been at least one book ass
  6. Lance, A PMO today (2016) states on its face that it's negotiable in the U.S. That was not true in the early 1960s. You'll note I did not write that PMOs were subject to the UCC, so the cases you cite are inapposite. If you wish to study PMOs, how they were processed in the early 1960s, the one-endorsement rule, and the function of bank stamps, I recommend you check out the 1967 Cornell Law Review Article, "Legal Aspects of Postal Money Orders," by John D. O'Malley.
  7. DVP, You make good points about the framing of Oswald and the cover-up. How can one believe the U.S. Government and the Texas government went to such lengths to pin the murders of JFK and J.D. Tippit on Oswald? You plead for simplicity. You make good points. You are a conservative who believes in government. I find that odd.
  8. Lance, By about 1962, there was a long-established procedure for the processing of bank items. This procedure was reflected in Articles 3 and 4 of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC). Article 3 dealt with "commercial paper", which were and are negotiable instruments. Article 4 dealt with bank deposits. The same articles exist today, hardly unchanged from 1962. Postal money orders (PMOs) were considered by the courts in the early 1960s not to be negotiable instruments. Today they are considered negotiable instruments. The change is one of form, not substance. In the early 1960s, PMOs wer
  9. Ron, From what I know and also from what I observed in Viet Nam, the CIA's top officers were oriented toward the USSR and Cuba, while for the CIA Viet Nam was pretty much a young person's game. The CIA had a large, broad operation in Viet Nam. The mafia bigwigs, from what I've read, were interested in Cuba, not Viet Nam. The drug profits from Viet Nam went mainly to the CIA, not to the mafia. The Army was very much oriented toward Viet Nam. Certainly the Air Force, Navy, and Marines played large roles in Viet Nam. Insiders like Bundy and Harriman were on top of both Cuba and Viet Nam, b
  10. Martin, I'll begin with a question. If you or anyone else here wants more, please just ask. I don't want to bore anyone. The question is, what is "intelligence"? Not human IQ. But military intelligence. That is U.S. Army intelligence. Naval and Air Force intelligence are similar. Not to be ignored. Intelligence is output not input. Intelligence is a product for consumers. Still with me, Martin? Good. Question for you, Martin: Based strictly on what I've written, what is "intelligence"?
  11. We'd know for sure if we knew for sure why JFK was killed. The answer's clearly no if the plotters wanted Castro overthrown and Cuba "liberated". The answer's clearly yes if the plotters wanted a vastly expanded American commitment in South Viet Nam. The answer is also clearly yes if the plotters, for whatever reason(s), simply wanted JFK dead. I subscribe to this view, but only this view. The three views presented here divide the anti-Warren Commission group into three bitterly divided camps. Pretty clearly, the plotters didn't care what LBJ was going to do as president. No one in powe
