Len Colby Posted February 24, 2006 Share Posted February 24, 2006 (edited) I was surprised to read the following declaration from Mr. Healy last Monday, To the best of my knowledge nobody has ever, EVER scrutinized the in-camera Zapruder camera original. If they had, I suspect the defenders of same would be all over the subject matter -- still, S I L E N C E! http://educationforum.ipbhost.com/index.ph...indpost&p=55799 ://http://educationforum.ipbhost.com/i...quot;] [/color]://http://educationforum.ipbhost.com/i...quot;] [/color]://http://educationforum.ipbhost.com/i...quot;] [/color] Why would he make a statement that he knew to be false? Didn't he expect to get called on it? Did he simply forget that Rollie Zavada had "scrutinized the in-camera Zapruder camera original" on several occasions? That's kind of hard to believe too because he knows Mr. Zavada and is in phone and e-mail contact with him and has referred to the "Zavada Report" on this forum and mentioned it three times in his chapter in Hoax (pgs. 113 – 144, http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/081269547X...keywords=zavada ) and there are 2 chapters about it in the book. I asked David for clarification a few times but he never replied (see messages 10,12 & 14), his failure to explain his false statement is what lead me to start this thread. He also insinuated that Robert Groden was lying when he said he had examined the original even though he doesn't seem to have any basis to make such a charge. Now, what camera original film was it that Robert Groden handled? Was that the same film David Lifton reviewed when LIFE [can't remeber whether it was it came from Chicago or New York office] shipped the film to Los Angeles, complete with LIFE rep, anyway? That one? Will Robert Groden go on the record stating he handled the in-camera Zapruder original, we'd like to know the film header # he "handled"? (Same thread as above, message 13). I was a bit confused as to what David was "trying to pull" so I asked Mr. Zavada for clarification. He told me the following "Len,I don't understand David's ignorance of my direct review of the in-camera original and first-day copies. After all those films were the basis of all Zapruder film frame photographs in my report. I saw the camera original in: 1996 – very casual view- inspected edge print and commented on film physical condition. 1997 & 1998 – Full day viewings and photographing of camera original for report. Direct comparison of SS copy vs original. (I can look up exact dates.) One or two persons of NARA staff were always present. 1999 – Spring – One-hour review of original with members of the Archives Preservation Sub-committee." Further because Groden was the "film expert" to the 1978 House Committee on Assassinations, there is a high probability that he did have access to the original at NARA. Why should someone challenge his statement? Rollie [/i] David do you care to explain? Did you a) lie or some how forget that Zavada examined the original film? Or c) can you some how rationalize this discrepancy, do think that both Groden and Zavada lied? Ironically David accused me of being a "xxxx" even though the use of that word "is banned from use on the forum. " (see rule iv http://educationforum.ipbhost.com/index.ph...topic=2243&st=0 ) and I (IMHO) accurately reported what he said 'Len Colby' - Lied (course if he posts a cite to the effect; * none of them are "photo experts" * I'll retract.... LOLThe problem with TGZFH is that most of the supposed experts do not know what they are talking about. Even Healy admitted thay none of them are "photo experts" supporting a xxxx isn't what I expect from of you, you should be ashamed of yourself http://educationforum.ipbhost.com/index.ph...indpost&p=55713 David's memory seems to be very poor because he had made a statement to that effect only 6 day earlier: I wouldn't worry about acquiring/finding photo experts. None on this board would be consulted, for either side...IMHO http://educationforum.ipbhost.com/index.ph...indpost&p=54805 Fetzer, Mantik, Costella, White and David are all members of this forum. So who are the photo experts in TGZFH? LOL Len Edited February 24, 2006 by Len Colby Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
