JFK Facts 2.0: the necessity of theory

In re: JFK 2.0 Eddy writes:

“For me JFK Facts is a go to site for part of the JFK story. It sometimes feels self limiting by its aversion to theorising.”

“Facts need to be found, and a powerful tool for fact-finding is a theory upon which to hang the facts. Jim Garrison started with a theory that Oswald had an involvement with Intelligence. We’re still pursuing that theory now, and no open minded person would say it wasn’t valuable work.”

    Mary Ferrell would be very proud of this site, she told me to publish my research. Mary pushed to get as much information about JFK’s murder to the public so excellent job Jeff.

    By the nature of the name of the site it is inclined to Fact’s.
    Theorizing to a limited extent is necessary though.
    Due to the smoke screen thrown up by the Government the last 53 years, the abstinence of the 1% owned Main Stream Media regarding the subject and the still illegally withheld CIA files on the Assassination a leap of faith to connect the dot’s, so to speak is necessary sometimes. Documentation is essential but when enough of it leads to an otherwise further logical conclusion it’s hard to not face reality.
    E.G. What is known about Joannides, the DRE, and Oswald in New Orleans in the summer of 63 is incriminating.
