  1. I know of no evidence that Silvia Odio knew De Torres in Cuba. De Torres emigrated to the US in 1955, so your claim is rather unlikely, to say the least...
  2. DAP painting Oswald as a loony lone wolf is an "eye popping nugget"? What in the actual f*** did I just read there...
  3. There is a list of what is still being hidden, correct? After the document dump coming up, the thing that might be beneficial is to have something near a consensus about what, say, the 10 most desired docs are. Getting specific about what is being held back and why it's suspicious provides a much better angle for journalists that are sympathetic to the cause. And there are plenty of MSM journalists that are indeed interested in the story; MSNBC has regularly covered this issue, the latest this afternoon on Hallie Jackson's show.
  4. There's no way Trump was ever briefed on what the files contained; Trump is legitimately a pathological xxxx and compromised by his foreign debt obligations.
  5. Told ya. The CIA simply says every time that it could hurt their reputation, therefore hurt their budget, therefore hurt the country, if this stuff got out. Not enough of a national groundswell calling bull**** on this.
  6. Jackie had limited memory of her behavior at the time of the shooting, which is to be expected. Her instinctual reaction was to try to put her husband's head back together after it exploded right in front of her face. That is why she appears to touch his head right before crawling onto the trunk, where she is unquestionably grabbing either brain matter or a skull fragment.
  7. One of the cool things about drummer Ed Cassidy was that he was 45 years old when Spirit first saw success. That was considered ancient back in 60s!!! As far as that WaPo thing, it is indeed bogus. The amount of false equivalences being tossed around is truly offensive. It does serve to demonstrate that the term "conspiracy theory" has been weaponized, and keeping JFK research focused on facts and intelligent discourse will go far in keeping the subject in the "True Crime" domain, rather than moving it to the "kooky conspiracy theory" realm that it appears far too many entities would prefer.
  8. It's only my opinion, but I think too much is made of Oswald getting the TSBD job as part of any plot. I think that was dumb luck. In alternate scenarios, who's to say someone else couldn't have been set up? Or that Oswald couldn't have taken the day off from a different job and been somewhere else on the parade route just as easily?
  9. Ron, IIRC, the stuff about Bush and ship's names first appeared in Mark Lane's Plausible Denial book.
  10. I'm going to make a point of gifting a copy of In Denial to father-in-law, who is a former right-winger, and a retired Navy veteran. He participated in a full dress rehearsal for a land invasion in the Caribbean in 1964. I should discuss that with him again. Btw, I encourage everyone that buys Larry's books on Amazon to leave a review. It will be printed and there will be an addendum added saying it was a verified purchase. The reviews there carry weight and a wide reach, and I imagine are extremely helpful. I will be writing one up in the near future.
  11. Halpern tried to blame the Kennedys for anything he could think of. A bitter man. Wasn't he Gus Russo's source for that weird Live By the Sword book?
  12. I thought Ron's suggestion yesterday that LHO could have been guarding the freight elevator and back door was very intriguing as well. I hadn't heard or considered that idea before.
  13. If she left the building at 12:25, then she would have missed the motorcade as well, if it had been on time. Right? That's why her original statement to the FBI 4 days after the assassination about leaving to go outside between 12:00 and 12:15 makes more sense.

  15. Good point, Ben. I think my assumption on this was always that if the heat got too strong, and LHO's links were exposed, the exiles would be the ones to take the fall next. The JMWAVE characters would claim they had either had no connection to them or had "cut off ties with them because they were uncontrollable."
  16. Good stuff. I'll add that if you're going to have a patsy, that patsy can't have an alibi that could exonerate him. That would not be a negotiable risk. So that must be reconciled.
  17. If Oswald participated in the event, yet wasn't guilty of killing the President, I feel like he would behave exactly as he did while in custody: Claiming innocence while refusing to cooperate, since there were still major problems with his behavior that day. Guilty of one thing but not the other thing. A no-win situation.
  18. It sure seems that way. In fact isn't that pretty much the entirety of the evidence? Everything else is pretty suspect; the ballistics are shabby, etc. I remember John McAdams once replied to me in a thread saying he believed Oswald used the iron sights to shoot JFK. I found that ridiculous because the Z313 shot is one of incredible accuracy; accuracy to the right side of JFK's head that was absolutely necessary when Jackie had her face inches away from the left side of his skull. In a moving limo. C'mon
  19. Perhaps it was presented as a protest type of thing. Stevenson got spit on a few weeks earlier by right-wingers, so maybe the idea of Castroites creating a bigger incident wasn't that surprising. Jack Ruby seemed to expect some sort of incident, as he asked Arlen Fuhlendorf if he wanted to "watch the fireworks" from the Post Office steps as the motorcade rolled through Dealey Plaza.
  20. Lots of people do and that's great. But unless a plausible scenario is presented that can show it's possible, we're likely to just be described as conspiracy theorists.
  21. Yes, but I've not seen any indication that would have bothered him in the least. Again, I don't know of any evidence that suggests this would have bothered him. He claimed he wanted to fight for Castro at one point. Oh I'm sure there were plenty of the higher-ups at CIA that didn't want war with Cuba. Probably many that didn't want JFK killed, either. But I don't think our favorite suspects at JMWAVE really cared what those people thought. It would be cool if you, and everyone else, would share with us what you speculate Oswald's role was. I agree that this type of conversation can be constructive, and I don't want to be the only one sharing my thoughts lol
