Confession of an Assassin


Recommended Posts

The video produced by MPI in 1996 shows an interview with James Files (formerly known as James Sutton) who is in Joliet. He appears to be very knowledgeable, and the discription of the murder weapon (Single shot Remington bolt action pistol called Firevall) seems to fit the Zapruder film impact analysis for this type of 222 cal (XP2100) with a fragible projectile 3100fps. With a scope mount, this would have been an ideal weapon for close range operation, and concealable in a brief case (one shot, one kill). The entire operation was not as well planned as one might concieve. It underscores the fact that there was no "French Connection," as described in previous investigations. It would have been very conspicuous if French speaking suspects were questioned near the area, not to mention the fact that their get-away would have been more complex and undertaking. It is likely that the hit had the unwritten support of many in the intelligence, mob, political, and business community, especially in the South. At the very least, the cover-up was certainly orchestrated at the highest levels of government.

The "triangular fire" ambush concept was used extensively when I was in Vietnam (66-67) by Special Forces trained Montenyards who used cross bows at night and grenades. The whole reason for the hit was the fact that those who wanted Kennedy out realized that an election would not bring this about. In fact, they felt that they could not wait until 1964, and that Kennedy would surely be re-elected due to his popular support. With Bobby and Teddy waiting in the wings, they felt it would be a dynasty that would eventually rule this country. Southern Protestants also felt the Kennedy presidancy to be a threat.

Why he would venture into the South in an open vehicle can be partly blamed on the advice he received from the Secret Service. Whoever changed the motorcade route, was in fact helping set up the assassination. Hunt Oil, Nixon, Johnson, Hoover, David Atlee Phillips, Sam Giancana, Santos Trafficante, Carlos Marcello, Alpha 66, Tony Arcado, Charles Nicoletti, Johnny Rosselli, Jimmy Hoffa, and many more in the CIA/Mob connection wanted the Kennedy's out of the way, especially in regards to Cuba. The fact is that Kennedy hated the CIA for what happened at The Bay of Pigs, and the CIA and Cuban Exiles hated him for not giving them more support. However Kennedy realized that to give U.S. military support would make it look like an invasion by the U.S. Government, and not a bunch of Cuban exile radicals. The final straw was the Cuban Missle Crises, and the agreement that Kennedy had made with Krushev. In additon, Kennedy was making overtures to Castro so as to ease the tensions between the two. The Cuban exile community would have nothing of this, and wanted to continue the attacks on Cuba. In the end, Robert Kennedy had used the CIA/Mob connection to try to hit Castro.

This same hit team may have been used to hit his brother instead. It is ironic that at this same time, Robert was trying to erradicate organized crime from America, by deporting Carlos Marcello. This effort received very little help from J. Edgar Hoover who was gambling and mob owned race tracks, and being subverted in his efforts because of his homosexuality. He failed to even acknowledge that organized crime even existed. He was more concerned with Communists. He used the power of his office to stay in power, by keeping secret files on presidents and congressmen. He used this "Sword of Damocles" to hang over each administration since FDR. It would be understandable in the KGB, or GESTAPO, but very unusual and suspecious for one man to remain in power of the largest domestic police organization in democratic history.

I don't buy into James Files' story for a second. For one thing, I think he traps himself when he said that a map of the motorcade route that Jack Ruby brought him showed a "change." We know now that the motorcade route was not changed so what are we supposed to make of James Files when he is obviously lying about the route?

I believe the route was changed in the week ahead of the assassination, but not "last minute" or the day before, like is suggested in the movie JFK. Most likely before Tuesday 19 November.

Anyway, When Files left for Dallas a week before, he was told the route went through Dealey Plaza and the hit was on a "fast moving target". Roselli informed him on the mornig of the assassination they had only made one change, the zigzag over Elm Street.

One more thing: If Files would be "well informed" from any other sources than himself, he would surely have been aware of the controversy of the motorcade route change and not have "weaved" it into his story.

No, the route was planned months in advance. You have to turn onto Houston and then Elm in order to get on the Stemmon's Freeway from Main Street. If you would keep going down Main, you would have to drive over a concrete divider which would have been impossible for press buses in the motorcade.

Look what the Warren Commission said:

"To reach the Trade Mart from Main Street the agents [Lawson and Sorrels] decided to use the Stemmons Freeway (Route No. 77), the most direct route. The only practical way for westbound traffic on Main Street to reach the northbound lanes of the Stemmons Freeway is via Elm Street, which Route No. 77 traffic is instructed to follow in this part of the city. Elm Street was to be reached from Main by turning right at Houston, going one block north and then turning left onto Elm. On this last portion of the journey, only 5 minutes from the Trade Mart, the President's motorcade would pass the Texas School Book Depository Building on the northwest corner of Houston and Elm Streets. . . .

The Elm Street approach to the Stemmons Freeway is necessary in order to avoid the traffic hazards which would otherwise exist if right turns were permitted from both Main and Elm into the freeway. To create this traffic pattern, a concrete barrier between Main and Elm Streets presents an obstacle to a right turn from Main across Elm to the access road to Stemmons Freeway and the Dallas-Fort Worth Turnpike. This concrete barrier extends far enough beyond the access road to make it impracticable for vehicles to turn right from Main directly to the access road. A sign located on this barrier instructs Main Street traffic not to make any turns. In conformity with these arrangements, traffic proceeding west on Main is directed to turn right at Houston in order to reach the Dallas-Fort Worth Turnpike, which has the same access road from Elm Street as does the Stemmons Freeway."
