5 decades later, some JFK probe files still sealed
AP via Fox ^ | August 17, 2013

Posted on 08/17/2013 5:40:03 PM PDT by don-o

Five decades after President John F. Kennedy was fatally shot and long after official inquiries ended, thousands of pages of investigative documents remain withheld from public view. The contents of these files are partially known -- and intriguing -- and conspiracy buffs are not the only ones seeking to open them for a closer look.

Seek no further — Bush did it.

"This is not about conspiracy, this is about transparency," said Jefferson Morley, a former Washington Post reporter and author embroiled in a decade-long lawsuit against the CIA, seeking release of the closed documents. "I think the CIA should obey the law. I don't think most people think that's a crazy idea."

Hey, tell it to Obama, Bub. See if he agrees with you.

Face it, the Democrats killed him because he tried to have commie hero Castro killed and didn’t bow enough to Kruschev.

Me, too. But I was in the labor room giving birth to my second child when a nurse rushed in and announced that he had just been killed. Even now it doesn’t seem like it could possibly have been that long ago.

Yes, that day is burned into my brain. What we do know is that a Marxist Socialist by the name of Lee Harvey Oswald either under orders or solely on his own did assassinate John F. Kennedy.

What gets me about that assassination is it’s the Kennedy brilliance on full display.

“Arrrebah...Let’s see...three Presidents have been assassinated in the past..Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley...arreebah..Jackson, both Roosevelts, Hoover, Truman all had attempted assassinations...I know: Let’s have the public know exactly what time and on what street I will be on riding on in the back of an open convertible going 20 mph ...areebah”

Tonight, from 9 to 11, on KGRA Radio, Richard Dolan —an Historian— will be interviewing Bryce Zabel who has an excellent book out on the period of the Kennedy incident. KGRA is available overe the Internet.

Most Americans have no idea that the U.S. government once issued debt-free money directly into circulation. America once thrived under a debt-free monetary system, and we can do it again. The truth is that the United States is a sovereign nation and it does not need to borrow money from anyone. Back in the days of JFK, Federal Reserve Notes were not the only currency in circulation. Under JFK (at at various other times), a limited number of debt-free United States Notes were issued by the U.S. Treasury and spent by the U.S. government without any new debt being created. In fact, each bill said “United States Note” right at the top. Unfortunately, United States Notes are not being issued today. If you stop right now and pull a dollar out of your wallet, what does it say right at the top? It says “Federal Reserve Note”. Normally, the way our current system works is that whenever more Federal Reserve Notes are created more debt is also created. This debt-based monetary system is systematically destroying the wealth of this nation. But it does not have to be this way. The truth is that the U.S. government still has the power under the U.S. Constitution to issue debt-free money, and we need to educate the American people about this.

Let’s have the public know exactly what time and on what street I will be on riding on in the back of an open convertible going 20 mph

The weird thing is that Oswald already had his Schoolbook Depository job when the route was announced.

BTW the assassination attempt against Hoover was in Argentina.

Lefties can’t face the fact that a Commie killed JFK, they so wanted it to be right-wingers.....Watch the CBS coverage, Cronkite kept alluding to “right wingers” who attacked Adlai Stevenson in Dallas, just a couple weeks before the assassination, he just *knew* it had to be a right-winger that killed Kennedy.

Which is why the front of Kennedy's cranium was blown off.

Yeah that is really bizarre. I mean how lucky could this guy get if he was looking to kill the POTUS? On the other hand maybe that is why he killed him. He saw the perfect opportunity and couldn't resist, but then you have to consider his whole commie connection and this coming right after Bay of pigs and all that. Just too many bizarre things about this assassination, then parading of Oswald in front of the public with basically no protection? If you'll notice, nobody seems really surprised in this photo except for the guy in the white suit, and Oswald just got shot. BANG. Where's the reflex action? Was everyones reflexes on hold that day? Everybody has this calm look on their face like they are out for a Sunday morning walk. On the other hand light travels faster than sound so maybe the photo was that at that right moment, a split second before the sound reached everyones ears although I don't believe that because these people are practically right next to the gun.

The whole thing stinks of a set-up either way.

JFK abandoned the CIA and a whole lot of Cuban exiles at The Bay of Pigs. They had a score to settle.

“The guy in the white suit” apparently saw Ruby coming and saw the gun, that is why he appears to be surprised. The others had not yet had time to react to the sound of the shot.

Not hardly. Although I wasn’t really into politics then, like most of my generation at that time, neither of my children would have been allowed to turn out like the Kennedy children. In spite of that, I would certainly welcome the Kennedy’s back into the White House compared with what’s there now.

Even back then, we in flyover country were convinced that his death was for political reasons.

Acckkk.....can't believe I got that backwards. I've read testimony that it was the back of JFK's skull that was blown off - not the front.

In the Zapruder film, Jackie Kennedy can clearly be see trying to crawl over the trunk of the vehicle to retrieve it.
