Tim Gratz Posted December 4, 2005 Share Posted December 4, 2005 (edited) These thoughts are from the Jefferson Morley interview. He concluded his interview as follows: I want to close by saying that public interest in Kennedy's assassination endures because the government has not yet provided a persuasive explanation of the crime nor released all of its records on the subject. When we get all of the records of the CIA and other government agencies we will finally be able to agree on the truth. Early in the interview he had this comment: My take is that decisive clarification of the JFK assassination story resides in the government's hands, in those still-secret documents. But shortly before his conclusion a caller had offered this troubling thought: Enjoyed your article. I have more of a comment than a question. I too have a theory about this case, but it does not concern who did it; instead, my theory is that we will never be able to reach a consensus even if compelling evidence were to suddenly come to light. Too many of the principals and witnesses are dead, the chain of evidence has been wholly contaminated, beginning with the removal of the body to Air Force One, and too many people have posited too many divergent theories to which they have become wedded. I believe that this case has, in the public consciousness, descended to the realm of historical curiosity, now so mythologized that the truth (and the compelling desire to find it) has been effectively quashed by the passage of time. This is unfortunate, as it leads to one inescapable conclusion; it is possible to kill the President of the United States, in the most photographed murder in human history, and have that crime avoid prosecution. Morley replied: Jefferson Morley: I am not so pessimistic as you are but what you say may be true. What do you think? Will we ever know for sure? Is the "final secret" in the yet-unreleased documents? _______________________ Edited December 4, 2005 by Tim Gratz Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
