Skip to comments.New Kennedy Assassination Tapes Revealed
Posted on 11/15/2011 7:31:53 PM PST by smokingfrog
Nearly 48 years after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, fresh audio evidence from that fateful day has surfaced. The evidence comes in the form of the original reel-to-reel Air Force One radio recording, containing conversations between officials on the plane, the White House situation room, and others. The original tape was long thought to be lost or destroyed.
The tape contains never-before-heard conversations between the presidential aircraft and the White House and immediately after the assassination of President Kennedy on Nov. 22, 1963.
It was held privately for years by President Kennedys military aide at the time, Chester Clifton. Clifton was in the Dallas motorcade when Kennedy was shot and killed, and on Air Force One and involved in the radio discussions. The tape was obtained by the Raab Collection of Philadelphia.
According to Nathan Raab, the Vice President of the collection, the tape is the raw, unedited version of the edited audio tape from Air Force One that is in the National Archive. The Raab Collection says the raw tape is about 30 minutes longer than the edited version, predates it by years, and contains incidents and code names never before heard by the American public.
That this tape even exists will change the way we view this great event in history, said Raab. It took decades to analyze the shorter, newer version and it will take years to do the same here. This provides a concise tale of the tapes and offers great insight into ongoing research.
The tape contains a dramatic first-hand report of the Presidents assassination, and the wounding of then-Texas Governor John Connolly. ..

This Just In......Oswald Still Acted Alone.
This just in ... Oswald didn’t act alone.
A tiger got him.
Just like the (Screw) Loose Change whackos.
still the most dramatic audio of the shooting:
I’m convinced after reading about his entire life, and hearing his older brother say how he has no doubt Lee Harvey did it alone. It’s still an amazing sequence of events, though.
“The original tape was long thought to be lost or destroyed. “
Maybe it was.
...Bump for later.
“This just in ... Oswald didnt act alone.”
That line’s been coming since Mark Lane wrote Rush to Judgment in 1966. In other words, JFK conspiracy nuts have been proving there’s a sucker born every minute for 45 years now.
I’m one of those freaks that has read every book ever written about the JFK assassination, own most (273 at last count). And I believe Oswald’s statement that he was just a “patsy”.
I think you mean his younger brother.
Better read them again. There is zero, and I mean zero, evidence that anyone other than Oswald did it.
Nov. 22 coming up soon for the loons.
When you have read as much about the JFK assassination as I have, come back and talk to me. We will have a meaningful discussion.
One beautiful thing about being a conspiracy believer is you can never be proven wrong. The other is, powerful evil conspirators running the world or the country, or even a city give people excuses for their own perceived shortcomings. As you can imagine, the affliction is more common in liberals than in conservatives.
Using a scoped, bolt action 30-06, I once shot from a tree stand four times at a deer running through brush directly away from me. The first shot was probably at 75yds and the last at 125yds. I hit him twice. So, I have no doubt that Oswald firing from a prepared rest at an essentially stationary JFK could have made those shots.
I bet you and I could have more than one interesting discussion. Remember Carroll Journegan (sp?). I used to hang out with him in the 70’s. At his house. A few hundred yards from Oswald’s grave at Rose Hill. He was either crazy, or playing crazy to stay alive. He did tell some...interesting tales.
I don’t believe any of the conspiracy theories I’ve read however.
