The JFK Assassination Chronology

Compiled by Ira David Wood III

“You may never learn the truth in your lifetime, and I meanthat seriously.”

– Chief Justice Earl Warren

4 BC

Sun-tzu authors what becomes a great Chinese classic workentitled: PING-FA(The Art of War) – one of the earliest known compilations on the subject of warand strategy. His insistence on taking political considerations into account inwaging war still greatly influences modern strategists. Sun-tzu argues that thehighest form of art of war is winning without fighting a single armed battle.

Victory is achieved by exhausting an adversary’s resources,dividing the loyalty of its people, demoralizing its leadership, and ultimately“breaking the enemy’s resistance.” To achieve this objective, Sun-tzu outlinesa system so misleading a leader about his opponent’s capabilities andintentions that he will be completely unprepared to deal with the reality ofthe situation. It is based on pure deception.

In this, it is also necessary to control the enemy’s ownintelligence system. This “divine manipulation of theats” – as Sun-tzu termsreaching into and controlling the enemy’s intelligence apparatus – involves theclose coordination of disinformation, which is sent to the enemy through“doomed spies” who are misleadingly briefed and then sent into the enemyintelligence by “inward spies,” or moles. The eventual result is that theenemy’s false picture of reality is reinforced by its own intelligence service.The Art of War becomes a fundamental “blueprint” for the CIA andKGB.

1090 AD

A secret order of Muslims is founded in Persia by aman named Hsin-e Sabbah. Hasn founds a sect to fight his political enemies bymeans of murder. Hsan gains the nickname Old Man of the Mountains from hisfortress hideaway, and is said to give his followers a vision-inducing drugcalled hashish, made from Indian Hemp. The visions of Islamic paradise broughton by the drug persuade his disciples they will have a glorious afterlife ifthey follow Hsan’s order and kill his eemies. The killers are calledHashshashin, the plural of a word meaning “one who smokes hashish.” The name iseventually corrupted into its present form – Assassin.

1940 – This year, the Secret Serviceestablishes its Protective Research Section to analyze and make available to thosecharged with protecting the President, information from White House mail andother sources concerning people potentially capable of violence to thePresident.

Also this year, Secretary of War, Henry L. Stimson,appointes John J. McCloy to “Expert Consultant in Espionage.” Months later,McCloy will be appointed Assistant Secretary of War – finally resigning thispost in 1945.

This year, McGeorge Bundy graduates from Yale. He gravitatesto Harvard as a member of the Society of Fellows, which has been endowed by hisgreat-uncle, the Harvard President A. Lawrence Lowell.

J. Edgar Hover this year begins reports about atwenty-eight-year-old journalist and socialite named Inga Arvad – who iscurrently living in Washington.Though Danish born, Arvd has had associates in Nazi Germany. She hasinterviewed Hermann Goring and Adolf Hitler, and by one report went to bed withthe later. She describes Hitler in print as “very kind, very chrming…not evilas he is depicted….and an idealist.”

January 26, 1940 – Gilberton Policarpo Lopez is born.Twenty-three years from now, he will become a mysterious “suspect” in theassassination of JFK.

The HSCA will eventually note: According to the account,Lopez obtained a tourist card in Tampa, Florida, on November 20, 1963,entered Mexico at Nuevo Laredo on November 23, and flew from Mexico City to Havana on November 27, 1963, andat a December meeting of the chapter, Lopez was reported to be in Cuba.

February 3, 1940 – Roy Emory Hargraves is born today in St. Louis, Missouri.

June 21, 1940 – Richard Nixon marries Theima “Pat” Ryan. Healso visits Cuba thisyear to “explore the possibilities of establishing law or business connectionsin Havana.”

August 20, 1940 – Leon Trotsky is attacked and killed by Sovietagent Ramon Mercader wielding an icepick in Coyoacan, Mexico.

December 21, 1940 – John Bowden Connally and Idanell “Nellie”Brill are married at Austin’s First Methodist Church.Connally and his wife move to Washington sincehe now works as a congressional aide for Lyndon Johnson. Idanell “Nellie” Brillhas grown up in Austin, whereher father owned a leather-goods business. She enrolled at the University of Texas whereshe met her sweetheart, John Bowden Connally, whom she marries today. Less than23 years from now, he will be lying in her lap in a speeding Lincoln,having been wounded in the same attack that will kill the president.

In preparation for any presidential visit to a new area, theProtective Research Section (PRS) ofthe Secret Service prepares a report and lists those individuals who have beenidentified as being a potential threat to the President. In 1963 they had amaster file of over thirty thousand potential threat suspects, a top 400 listof those who are serious, and a top ten list with photos of those who are mostlikely to be an immediate threat.

“Agent Blaine loved doing advances,” McCubbin explains in TheKennedy Detail – JFK’s Secret Service Agents Break Their Silence (By GeraldBlaine w/ Lisa McCubbin and forward by Clint Hill, Gallery Books, 2010), “Tohim it was the most exciting and challenging part of being on the White HouseDetail. He’d much rather be coordinating security in a new city or foreigncountry than standing post on a dark night in Hyannis Port or Palm Beach,looking out at the black ocean. In reality, the advance work was 95 percent ofthe effort in guaranteeing the president’s safety on a trip. The political teamput together the president’s itinerary and it was the Secret Service’s job tofigure out how to move the president safely from one place to the next, how tosecure every venue and every route. You had to think like an assassin.”

“The first stop before any advance was always the PRS.Located in the Executive Office Building (EOB), next door to the White House,the PRSoffices were the nerve center for tracking threat cases. Any time there was athreat made against the president’s life – whether it was a written letter, aphone call, details gathered from an informant, field investigation or anunstable person trying to get inside the Northwest Gate of the White House – aninvestigative report was initiated and a case file number issued. A PRS agentwould type the report on carbon paper so there would be multiple copies, notingthe threat maker’s name, last known address, a synopsis of the threats made, adescription of the person, and their medical history, if known.”

“Cases were analyzed and categorized according to theseriousness of the threat. They ranged from ‘extremely dangerous’ to theinnocuous ‘gate crasher.’….Whenever somebody made a threat against thepresident, they would be categorized as a permanent risk. There’d be anevaluation, the individual would be monitored, and the case file would remainin the Protective Research file for as long as the person was still alive. Itwasn’t uncommon that a person who made a threat against one president wouldcontinue making threats against each subsequent president. This could go on forthirty or forty years, so some of the cases files were pretty thick.

“The records room of the PRS officecontained rows and rows of gray metal four-draw file cabinets that heldthousands of threat suspects files, organized by case number. There weresmaller file cabinets where index cars of each suspect were organized bothgeographically and alphabetically. The cards were cross-referenced to the casefiles. Thus if you knew either the name of a suspect or their last knownlocation, you could go to the small index drawers, locate the card, which wouldthe case number on it, then go to the large filing cabinets to get the masterfile.”

“The most serious threat suspects were the ones on the flashcards every agent carried with them at all times. It was the nature of threatmakers to wander as vagabonds or itinerants, moving from town to town or stateto state. You never knew when or where one of them might show up.”

Joe Backes – The Tenth Batch Part Two


Document # 180-10118-10041is a six page Secret Service report on John William Warrington. It is writtenby SA Arnold K. Peppers of the Tampa, Florida office. It covers the period ofOctober 18-23, 1963. It's status is pending.

Synopsis- This file covers investigation of five threatening lettersaddressed to the President, postmarked Oct. 15, 16 and 17, at Tampa, Floridaand as signed, "R. L. Scates". John William Warrington has beenidentified as the author of these letters and was arrested October 18, 1963, atTampa, Fla., for mailing an extortion letter to a local bank president. Subjectis currently under $50,000 bond and confined to the Tampa City Jail on theextortion charge. Subject claims a recent on "trial visit" from theVA hospital, Gulfport, Miss., and the Jackson office is requested to review hisfile for background information.

Mr. Warrington wrote a letter to Postal Inspector C. M. Griffith on October17, 1963 that stated that the Postmaster was in danger of having a dynamiteaccident unless he purchased protection against such an accident for $1,000.The letter instructed Griffith to send ten $100 bills to Room No. 5, AlbanyHotel, 1104 1/2 Franklin St. Tampa, Florida, and not to notify the FBI. Whilereviewing that letter another letter arrived dated October 18, 1963 nearlyidentical to the first.

Handwritten analysis of those two letters with the five sent to thepresident showed they were of common authorship.

On the evening of October 18, 1963 Secret Service agent Arnold K. Peppersreceived word from FBI agent Neil Welch, ASAIC, in the Tampa office thatWarrington was arrested and in custody for sending yet another extortion letterto the President of the First National Bank of Tampa, Florida. Warrington toldthe FBI that the money raised in these extortion schemes was to be used toassassinate the President.

All extortion letters and the letters to the President had the same returnaddress Room 5 of the Albany Hotel.

Warrington stated that he wanted to write five extortion letters to fivebank presidents, that the money raised would be used to assassinate PresidentKennedy on his November 1963 Tampa visit. Warrington hated President Kennedybecause he went to Harvard and all Harvard men are Communists.

SA Lee Ballinger of the FBI advised that Warrington had papers thatindicated that he was recently released from the Veterans Hospital of Gulfport,Mississippi, and that in June of 1961 Warrington was sentenced to 20 years forsimilar extortion letters in Jacksonville, Florida. It is unknown if he escapedfrom Gulfport, Mississippi.

On October 23, 1963 Warrington was interviewed in the jail. He is describedas an American white male, 53 years, 170 pounds, 5 feet 9 1/2 inches, mediumbuild, ruddy complexion, blue eyes, thin greying hair, slightly stooped.

The subject appeared rational. He admitted to being in and out of mentalhospitals for the last 15 years. He has been diagnosed as schizophrenic,paranoid type.

"A Comprehensive Review of Reclaiming History", by James DiEugenio

R.H.: Some Questions and observations:
1. Electrical Power Events: Geneva Hine's phone system lights go off, just before12:30. Was this a power outage or just no calls at that time?; Truly and Baker are unable to get an elevator down from the 5th floor less than a minute after the shots. Sandra Styles said she and Vicky Adams tried thepassenger elevator in front, but when it did not work, they went to the backstairs. The West elevator has power when Mooney gets on the 1st floor,then loses power on the 2nd floor, 12:33-12:36. Who cut power to elevator at that precise moment? Select Elevator circuits and possiblyt he phone system circuit were reported off, but I have seen no report of all power to the TSBD being off, which would have happened if the Main Circuit breaker was thrown. The 3 elevators would have been on their own dedicated circuits, as would the phone system. The evidence supports the possibility that selected circuits may have been turned on/off at various times just before and after 12:30. This rules out random fuse failure (or circuit breakers being tripped) and supports the notion of manipulation of the power circuits. Was the Fuse/Breaker box located in the basement of the TSBD?

2. Why is there no exchange of information with Mooney when he is passing the men he believes might be DPD officers on the stairs? They would have been the very first respondents on the scene. If you were Mooney, wouldn't you at least ask them a few questions … like Had they seen a man with a rifle roaming around on an upper floor? And why were they were leaving the scene so soon?
3. There are three general descriptions of unknown men seen on the upper floors, in some cases with rifles, just before and at the time of the shooting:
First man: a younger white man who was slender.
Second man: another white man who may have been older, heavier, and wearing a tan jacket or coat and possibly glasses.
Third man: a dark complected man who may have been Latin/Mexican/Negro.
