Jefferson Morley on JFK Revisited


Recommended Posts

Let me note, it has now been 8 days since my twitter challenge to Posner and three surviving members of the Commission--Willens, Griffin, Slawson--for a debate in LA or SF.

No reply yet.

Recall, the name of his book was Case Closed.

If there was no evidence of a conspiracy, what is the problem?  But hey, if I was them and I saw JFK Revisited, I would not reply either.

I must say, if such a debate were to be limited to JFK Revisited and provided it was a formal debate with a moderator, I don't think it would be difficult to do very well against Jim D. I am basing this on the number of points that Fred Litwin has been able to score already in his series on the film.

Now, mind you, I am not volunteering to debate Jim D. That is just not my thing-I prefer to work behind the scenes.

But I think that they reached the proper conclusion-Oswald was guilty.

that in and of itself is a conspiracy theory... the entire WC committed the conspiratorial act against Oswald -- and your "proper conclusion," lmao, that sir, is why we have trials, and until that time and place innocent until proven guilty. To opine anything thing else is wishful thinking, an act of PR, of course if you were in Russia you may get away with it...

Hitler was never tried for his crimes. He may be said to be legally innocent, but I believe the verdict of history indicates he is guilty. Same with Oswald and I think it is terrible that so many people absolve him of guilt for his horrible crime.

Okay, so the "mob killed Hoffa" theory isn't your theory. But it is a conspiracy theory and you do believe it. Therefore, you do believe at least one conspiracy theory.

So why did you say that you don't believe in conspiracy theories?

No, I don't believe it. I suspect it could be true but I don't believe it. One day, it may be proven and then I will believe it.

Tracy,

Thanks for answering my questions.

I think that you were right at first when you said you suspect that the Mafia killed Hoffa. You objected only when I substituted the word "believe" for "suspect." I guess because you consider "believe" to mean that a person considers something to be factual. But that's usually not the case. Consider this example:

If someone says that they believe it will rain tomorrow, does that mean that they consider it a fact that it will rain tomorrow? No it doesn't. It means that, for whatever reason, the person thinks it is likely to rain.

Anyway, that's the reason I was having a hard time understanding you.
