A 26-second home movie taken of the assassination of President John Kennedy on November 22, 1963, has become one of the most famous pieces of film ever. There are countless versions on YouTube, viewed by tens of millions of people.
Where did this amazing imagery come from? Is it an authentic depiction of the assassination of a U.S. president?
To answer such questions, I sought out a man who could answer them better than almost anyone: Richard Stolley, a former editor at LIFE Magazine, the immensely popular photographic magazine of the 1960s.
Alex Cox, the creative cinematic mind who gave us “Repo Man” and “Sid and Nancy,” offers his reflections on the saddest, shortest movie ever, the Zapruder film. He relies on Doug Horne’s original research. (H/T Tad) Read more
Watch this video, especially at the 1:19 mark. It is one reason why I no longer dismiss the idea that Abraham Zapruder’s film of JFK’s assassination was altered.
Thanks to Doug Horne’s interview with Dino Brugioni, the CIA’s leading photo analyst, I have had to revisit my previous skepticism. Brugioni viewed the Zapruder film not long after it was delivered to the CIA on November 23, 1963, and he recalls seeing imagery that does not appear in the film that is now in the National Archives.
On the upcoming 50th anniversary of the publication of Warren Commission report in September 1964, not one but two conferences in the Washington DC area will take a close look at the report and its account of JFK’s assassination, which most Americans do not believe is accurate. Read more
This just in from Doug Horne:
First, I want to thank Jeff for posting this interview (without yet watching it) in spite of the fact that he has always been skeptical about the Zapruder film’s supposed alteration (which I believe really did happen, for a host of reasons). This speaks well to his attitude about evidence; i.e., his willingness to consider new evidence and to follow wherever it may lead, and to permit and even encourage open debate, rather than suppressing uncomfortable or opposing opinions expressed by others. Thanks, Jeff, for supporting the scientific method.
Second, some of the comments in this thread following the video reveal that others are simply not as familiar with this material as I am, or that they may not have fully paid attention during the interview. I hope the points I make below are useful to anyone who watches the video: Read more
Doug Horne, former analyst for the Assassination Records Review Board asks a reasonable question in this trailer for a longer interview with filmmaker Shane O’Sullivan (available for $4.99.)
Horne’s question is this:
What happened between 6:35 and 8 pm on the evening of November 22, 1963? Read more
Doug Horne, former Chief Analyst for Military Records for the Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB), writes with a comment/correction on our Oct. 19 story, “Enhanced Air Force One tapes capture a top general’s response to JFK’s murder.”
What kind of president was John F. Kennedy? Who were his enemies? These questions still preoccupy the American people. And the answers are found in a debate of two leading experts on the subject. Read more
In first of multi-part article, Doug Horne, former staffer of the Assassination Records Review Board, details what he calls “JFK’s War against the National Security Establishment.”
The first installment only covers the events of 1961. From the Bay of Pigs fiasco to the firing of Allen Dulles seven months later, Horne captures JFK’s disillusionment with the limited policy choices that the hawks of the Pentagon and the CIA were offering him.
Last month James Jenkins, a man who witnessed the autopsy of President John F. Kennedy 50 years ago, spoke with JFK researchers in Dallas.
One of them was Doug Horne, who served as chief analyst for military records for the Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB) in the 1990s. Horne thinks Jenkin’s story is important and I agree.
Jenkins’s story certainly can’t be dismissed as more speculation from a conspiracy theorist. In fact, Jenkins’s account is eyewitness testimony that must be acknowledged by any serious student of the JFK story.
