Sandy Larsen Posted November 1, 2016 Share Posted November 1, 2016 Oh I see. The FBI would ignore a warning from the CIA that the President was to be assassinated. And that would earn the FBI a larger operating budget. Dead president means more money for FBI. Yeah, that makes sense. Not! The problem, of course, is that you are equating a threat to the President of the United States to ordinary every-day events. You believe that CIA and FBI officials wouldn't think about their careers when confronted with a death threat to the President, and instead would insist on following standard operating procedures. LOL. No, that is just crazy talk. Sandy, Whatever it is, it isn't crazy. Have you read J. Edgar Hoover's testimony to the Warren Commission? Hoover had to explain why the FBI failed to cooperate with the Secret Service in dealing with threats to JFK in Dallas. Hoover's explanation was that they had a big pile of threats to JFK on their desks, but they had to assess whether they were from screwballs or were legitimate. Hoover said that the FBI finally decided that none -- literally none -- of the threats to JFK in Dallas were legitimate. And the FBI went through a lot of them. So, the FBI dropped the ball. Certainly I said nothing about J. Edgar Hoover getting JFK killed to get a bigger budget -- that was your sense of humor -- however, in J. Edgar Hoover's testimony to the Warren Commission he did -- in fact -- raise the topic of the FBI budget! Did you know that? In point of historical fact, the Warren Commission testimony of J. Edgar Hoover, Alan Belmont, James Rowley, and all the FBI men and all the Secret Service men who testified -- all claimed that they were following SOP. You should read it sometime. It's not me who's talking crazy. Regards, --Paul Trejo Paul, If the CIA and FBI took actionable death threats to the U.S. President as cavalierly as what you describe, I don't believe any president would have survived his term. Given that most president have survived their terms, I thinks it's obvious that you are wrong regarding this. And so if General Walker was the brains behind the JFK assassination, the CIA and FBI would have acted on the warnings Ricard Case Nagell sent them, especially the CIA given that Nagell was one of their own and would have been trusted. Unless of course the CIA or FBI wanted to see the President dead. But even then, I doubt very much they would put their careers on the line by ignoring Nagell's warnings.
