Jack White Posted May 10, 2007 Share Posted May 10, 2007 I received the following from Jim Fetzer: ................. Mark, There are two sites that deal with JFK: assassinationscience.cøm, where I discuss matters of public policy, and assassinationresearch.com, which is an on-line journal for advanced study of the death of JFK. I am sending your inquiry to Jack White, who is better positioned to assist than am I. Thanks for writing. Good luck with your research!
