Paul Troglia Posted January 13, 2005 Share Posted January 13, 2005 Hello to all: I am the guy who started the string called "Why Was the Assassination Necessary?" I asked that question as a challenge to conspiracy theories, not as justification for them. I think Oswald did it alone. What has emerged from the give and take of that discussion offers, at least to me, a topic worthy of a parallel string. And that is this: Why do you care? That may sound blunt, and maybe the answer (I assume it is for Truth, Justice and the American Way) is obvious, but there must be something else. The erudition, the detail, the credible fine-tuning of analysis, and the passion you bring to the debate is beyond the obvious to me. We're in the third generation since the assassination, the significant players are all dead, the "usual suspects" are all dead (Castro must mainline St. John's Wort), everything but a confession has been wrung out of the few witnessses alive today, certainly "The Conspiracy" is dead. Kids point to the evidence on field trips to the archives and giggle--a bloody shirt, Exhibit 399, a Manlicher-Carcano-- and, yes, I know, you can see the autopsy on the Internet. I believe if someone were to give a death-bed confession to everything while connected to a lie detector, the pursuit still would not end. One of the members in this forum, Dawn Meredith, said something in one of her posts that was intriguing. She thought the passion was spiritual. Is that it? I have to know. The answer may be the only pure, clean thing to come out of that dreadful day so many years ago. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
