  1. Hello all. It's been around 2 years since I posted on the forum, but, like Pacino says "Just when you think you're out, they pull you back in." Truman Capote is, supposedly, the only person to have met JFK, RFK, LHO, and Sirhan before the assassinations took place. I say allegedly (only in the case of Sirhan), because I recall hearing several years ago that Capote used to tell people about meeting both Sirhan and Manson at the Tate/Polanski house in California. The only online references I can find for this don't mention what books he may have written this in. In one interview he conducted

  3. Pat, Cliff, Can one of you start a new thread on the back wound discussion? I'm just trying to keep the thread on topic. Thanks guys, John
  4. Amazon has listed a book available for pre-order and due out in November of this year. It is called 'Assassination logic: How to think about claims of conspiracy' by John McAdams. I'm not sure if this has been posted on the forum before so I'll delete the topic if it has. Description: http://www.amazon.com/JFK-Assassination-Logic-Claims-Conspiracy/dp/1597974897/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1280230758&sr=8-1 Publisher: Potomac books inc. Has also published ' Directors of Central Intelligence as Leaders of the U.S. Intelligence Community, 1946–2005', ' Fr. Francis Duffy, W
  5. John, I don't think it's fair to say Mark had lunch with David Atlee Phillips. It was more of an adversial relationship with them in court during the DAP vs. Spotlight libel trial. Seldom does a libel trial go that far, and I belive, Phillips testified under oath with Mark questioning him. Now maybe if there's a trial for Posner, they can call other witnesses to testify, and we can have a real show and tell, like the Simpson trial. BK Nefarious was a poor choice of words. What kind of witnesses do you mean Bill? Ones that can affirm his professionalism I suppose. I take your logic o
  6. So Mark has now represented Jim Jones and Gerald Posner and had lunch with David Atlee Phillips. Any other nefarious ties we should be aware of?
  7. Some of the suggestions given on the COPA facebook page Perhaps a law suit? I was thinking that a defamation or liable case, in the Tom Hanks situation. Although I'm nit very clear on American Laws. It would be great to see Tom Hanks or HBO to have to prove that there was no conspiracy beyond any reasonable doubt. Following something like that, if we could cause a big fuss, perhaps there would or could be an exhumation. Kicking up a fuss to have the rest of the files released... And a counter doco, just incase HBO can get their series made.... Convene grand juries by citizens petition in
  8. With the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination fast approaching I think it's worth taking stock of what exactly we, as a research community, are doing and what we're trying to achieve. We could call ourselves concerned citizens, well wishing skepticists, history enthusiasts, or a host of other titles, but we probably couldn't call ourselves organised. That is not to say that we haven't accomplished a lot since the assassination both in terms of published work and influencing public opinion with research, but lately we haven't had a goal or a plan of action. I feel that we must realise that
  9. I read in the guardian that the same book has details of MI5 bugging 10 downing street during the Heath government and for a further 15 years after that. Why it would stop, I don't know. It was claimed that the bugs were never listened to or used as a source of information. Not the brightest explanation an 'intelligence' agency.
  10. Can anyone report back on how the conference went? I see Barry Keane is online now, perhaps he would be kind enough to give us the low down.
  11. Parralax View http://veehd.com/video/2383018_THE-PARALLA...rren-Beaty-Baby JFK http://stagevu.com/video/jejvkhwuqfvi 7 days in May (not strictly assassination, but a coup movie) Blow out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVjBiiN8JDU Executive action http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8VAOVhwLkEU
  12. If the film is ever to be made, 2013 is the best selling point they could hope for. I assume since Paxton is involved in the Hanks production, his seemingly conspiracy oriented project is off the table.
  13. I was clearing out my inbox and came across this reply from Gerry Hemming. I thought I'd share considering has sicne passed away. Good to hear from you John. I have never seen any documentation RE: Raul [originally and erroneously spelled "Raoul" in the French style] as being of "Portugee" ethnicity. I knew Raul under his true name of Robert Emmett Johnson. He was an assassin & facilitator both for the late dictators Somoza (1950s) and after his demise, went to work for "Generalissimo" Trujillo in the Dominican Republic. He was an ex-World War II "China Marine" attached to O.S.S. Detach
  14. Kathleen, I was filming that portion and pput it on youtube. I turned off the camera because youtube allows only 10 minutes of film. There were possibly three others filming John Armstrong's talk, Joe Green, Randy Benson and Ralph Cole. Ralph definitely filmed it. The dvd should be available through COPA. If DPUK want to broadcast some of the conference I can send some technical advice. It's not difficult, all that is needed is a laptop, an internet connection and a camera. DPUK could broadcast just a few of the talks and possibly make others available afterwards. Best, John
  15. Surely this movie is coming 3 years too early. There must be a lot of documentation relating to Jackie's thoughts following the assassination yet to be released. This seems a bit premature, surely he should keep this under the carpet until a more developed record is revealed.
