Rick Bauer shared his memories of David Ferrie, a man who has been the object of JFK conspiracy speculation for decades.
I believe Ferrie was killed to keep him from testifying at the Shaw trial. The timing of his death is too convenient.
He was killed, I believe, to keep him from revealing CIA secrets, not because he had a part in the JFK assassination.
The most interesting thing to me about Ferrie is the number and identity of his associates. Like Oswald, he hung around with a who’s who of murky characters.
If you could have observed a young U.S. Army counter-intelligence officer in the late 1960s whose assignment was under deep cover to penetrate a far Left cell on, say, the Wisconsin campus, you’d observe the same sort of thing. If you didn’t know who the C.I. officer was, you’d swear he was a dangerous radical.
I wonder whether Ferrie was murdered?
