‘Together they will observe the law of silence’

Talbot has an eye for quotes, and one memorable one is derived from the memoirs of French President Charles de Gaulle’s information minister, Alain Peyrefitte. Talbot quotes at some length from the words de Gaulle spoke upon his return from the Kennedy funeral. After talking insightfully about the assassination – de Gaulle was a recent target himself – the French president observed the possibility of great upheaval in America, but concluded that it would all be swept under the rug: “But you’ll see. All of them together will observe the law of silence … They don’t want to know. They don’t want to find out. They won’t allow themselves to find out.”

Is David Talbot right that the CIA killed JFK ?

In Salon, David Talbot writes that JFK was assassinated, 52 years ago today, at the behest of a clique of CIA officers led by a highly-praised operator named Bill Harvey.

Is Talbot right?

Dale Myers on the state of the JFK case

By setting up a series of straw men, adopting a supercilious tone, and ignoring new evidence, Dale Myers manages to unpleasantly restate the official theory of a lone gunman in a way that makes it less convincing than ever.

Fifty-two long years, and still nothing to exonerate Oswald or uncover the so-called “true conspirators.”

Myers is correct on one point: there is no proof beyond a reasonable doubt that any specific named individual conspired to kill President Kennedy. This factual statement also applies to Lee Oswald.

Oliver Stone on the state of the JFK case: conspiracy deniers are in denial

You can count on a good Hollywood director to “cut to the chase.”

Mainstream media have never given up telling us how superstitious or illogical the common people are.

‘There was nothing rogue’ about the CIA’s Bill Harvey

When people ask ‘Who killed Kennedy?’ one plausible answer is William King Harvey, a tough and much-praised CIA officer in 1963. In the most popular video ever on JFK Facts  Harvey’s widow, CG Harvey, says on camera that JFK and Jackie were “scum.”

How do you solve the JFK assassination?

As I said in at the JFK Lancer conference in Dallas two years ago, the challenge is to: describe the latest evidence accurately; use the internet to mobilize online civil society; press for full disclosure; and insist on accountability. It can be done by 2017.

Why should my generation care who killed JFK?

Jacob Carter’s book “Before History Dies,” is an excellent introduction to the debate about the causes of JFK’s assassination.

Readers weigh in: JFK video you should watch: Gerald McKnight

JD recommends Episode 33 from Black Op Radio’s series “50 Reasons for 50 Years,” in which Professor Gerald D. McKnight discusses the Warren Commission’s reaction to the rumor that Oswald was an FBI informant.

JFK Lancer conference opens today 

If you’re in Dallas, you’ll want to check out the usual array of excellent speakers, inlcuding David Talbot, Bill Simpich, Marie Fonzie. Larry Hancock, and Bill Garnet, to name just a few. It is a chance to drill down on the key issues raised by the unresolved events of November 1963 with some of the most knowledgable people in the world.

What’s the most important piece of new JFK assassination evidence?

I nominate a forgotten tape recording that surfaced a couple of years ago. Read more

Readers weigh in: JFK book you should read: ‘Dallas 1963’

Leslie writes; “I would recommend returning to the scene of the crime, vis a vis Dallas, and read “Dallas 1963” by Bill Minutaglio and Steven L. Davis. It is an apologia for the Warren Commission conclusion and has won awards – some of which may have been based on that rather than the detail it provides of the back drop – but regardless, read with discernment, it is an excellent resource toward understanding the dynamics and ethos of the city leading to 11.22.63 … and it names names.:

The curious story of Oswald’s radio

What this Buzzfeed story confirms is a singular fact rarely discussed in the annals of U.S. intelligence: the CIA did not conduct a counterespionage investigation of an accused president assassin.

Police went to the rooming house and seized everything in his room, including the radio. They gave the radio to the FBI, and then it went to NSA.
