Thanks to everybody who sent their thoughts on the AP story on Morley v. CIA, a lawsuit seeking still secret JFK assassination records.I will file my declaration to the federal court early next week and post it here.
The just-announced Reelz Channel JFK documentary, which peddles the long-since debunked conspiracy that a Secret Service man shot President Kennedy, is getting credulous attention from factually challenged news sites around the world.
Even the usually reliable Associated Press managed to report the bogus speculation without consulting with a single historian, journalist or former investigator of JFK’s assassination, any number of whom could have pointed out that there is NO photographic, eyewitness, or forensic evidence to support the fiction that a Secret Service agent named George Hickey Jr., now deceased, shot JFK.
I was working for Visión, a Spanish-language newsmagazine patterned after Time. I was on my way to AP to get related photos, when as I passed within a short distance of St. Patrick’s Cathedral, its bells tolled the death of JFK. I can still hear them. Even now, after 49 years, a heaviness comes across my chest as I remember that day, and look at the photos.
What was it like to be there that day? AP photographer Bob Jackson tells his story of riding in the motorcade in Dallas on Nov. 22, seeing a rifle in the 6th floor window, and people gathering on the grassy knoll. You are there. (HT Sixth Floor Museum)
