The cops in Dallas knew about it beforehand, also. What’s new?
Something new might be the bizarre and off-the-wall notion, which I have always believed, that Oswald pulled the trigger, that he acted alone, and that he was not part of any conspiracy.
However, if there was some sort of conspiracy, I have long thought that Manuel Piñeiro, Castro's spy chief during the early 1960's may have at least known something about it.
Castro was speaking with an emissary of the 35th president when he received the news--he was stunned, remarking, "This is very bad."
The next day his 12,445-word speech made it clear he dismissed the use of Oswald as the patsy as a cover for a reactionary operation.
His comments about CIA and FBI are prescient.
Oswald was seen in the lunchroom just prior, and on the second floor just after by Truly and Baker.
The Dallas Police paraffin test for Oswald's cheek was negative for gunshot residue.
The test was confirmed by the Atomic Energy Commission's Oak Ridge Laboratory which also tested seven men who in fact fired a Mannlicher-Carcano and all seven tested positive for the barium and antimony.
This is in Gerald D. McKnight, Breach of Trust: How the Warren Commission Failed the Nation and Why, 2005.
Approaching the 50th anniversary, Operation Mockingbird is still extant, and Obama is no more willing than Bush to have the CIA release its files on George Joannides.
Joannides ran DRE at the time of the assassination, and kept the HSCA from seeing CIA files during the investigation's tenure.
Though that government panel's chief Robert Blakey did state a conspiracy existed.
The tense used was inaccurate.
If you ever get the time, here is WFAA’s live broadcast from that weekend in 57 parts. What is striking they continually say it was a Mauser for well over 24 hrs after the assassination. Also, they keep showing a policeman holding the gun that killed Tippit at the time Oswald was being arrested. And always remember, eye-witness accounts are the most accurate moments after the crime.
If you want to know the REAL truth go and check out the one hour interview with LBJ’s mistress with who he fathered a son!!!
Where else but Texas could someone kill a U.S. President, then the assassin is assassinated while in police custody.
This is the definition of, "Keystone cops".
