Now that some of the forum members have IARRB and are reading it, I thought that Doug Horne might now answer some questions, though I understand he might be a little burnt out and maybe want to wait until things settle down a little more.

My first question is why weren't the Paines questioned?

I asked that same question to an ARRB lawyer at the AARC conference in 2004 and the response was they decided - who decided? to concentrate on the medical evidence and not bother with the rest. I don't think that answer is appropriate since the Paines were not questioned by the HSCA and Michael Paine had said in the meantime that he saw the backyard photo the first time he met Oswald, so there's a discrepency in the record there that should have been rectified.

And as you have shown in your book, if they decided to concentrate on the medical records, why weren't they done more thorough, leaving many issues hanging, like the two brain exams that could have been resolved by recalling Humes and Boswell?

And thanks for all you've done Doug,

BK
