Josiah Thompson Joins the Forum

Recommended Posts

The quality of the political debates of this forum is reflected in the quality of the people who are joining. For example, Josiah Thompson joined this morning. I am hoping to persuade him to answer questions on his books, Six Seconds in Dallas and Gumshoe.

I have been a bit disappointed with the lack of questions some of our authors have been getting. This is a great opportunity for members to have direct contact with these writers. This is very much an experimental exercise that has the potential to change the relationship between author and reader.

I suspect part of the problem is that members do not access the History Books section. If not, here is the URL you need to go to.


Don Bohning: The Castro Obsession


William Turner: Deadly Secrets


Joseph Trento, The Secret History of the CIA


Jim Marrs, Crossfire


William Reymond: JFK, Le Dernier Témoin


Dick Russell, The Man Who Knew So Much


Nina Burleigh: A Very Private Woman


Larry Hancock: Someone Would Have Talked


Nathaniel Weyl: Encounters With Communism


Donald Gibson: The Kennedy Assassination Cover-Up

All of us "older" ones owe a debt of gratitude to Mr. Thompson for having provided us with those frames of the Z-film which the WC conveniently lost.

SIX SECONDS IN DALLAS stands alone in it's search for an understanding of the many questions which have come about as a result of the WC obfuscation of the factual evidence.

Thankfully, it does so without meandering into the speculative and frequently hallucinogenic theories of body kidnappings ; black dog man; sewer drain man; badge man; etc; etc; etc.

Tom, could not agree with you more. Mr. Thompson should add much to the Forum. Interestingly, some of the extreme conspiratorialists are now claiming that Thompson is (or was) a disinformation agent. It is unbelievable the charges made against someone who does not agree with the "conventional wisdom" about the assassination!
