Dave writes from Canada with the latest intelligence on Episode 5 of the mysteriously cancelled TV show, “JFK Declassified: Tracking Oswald.”
In the Soviet Union banned publications and writings that circulated privately were known as “samizdat” (Russian for “I self-publish”). Now that History Channel’s “JFK Declassified” has been taken off the air for unknown reasons, we must rely on samizdat reports to learn about what we cannot see.

Thanks to everybody who has been bombarding History Channel and A&E with questions. No one received anything but a spam answers. So the mystery endures. We still have no explanation of why the History Channel’s “JFK Declassified” series was taken off the air after two episodes, at least in the United States.
Was it poor ratings? Did the show’s “Castro Sorta Done It” semi-conspiracy theory offended somebody in high places? Why is the series available to Canadians only. We’re still looking for answers.
Here’s History Channel’s summary of Episode 3. Read more
Reader Stuart may have the answer to the “JFK Declassified.” The new version of the “Castro Done It” conspiracy theory was killed by bad ratings, he suggests. It is the most plausible explanation yet.

The first JFK conspiracy theory, published Nov 24, 1963, and paid for by CIA
In an interview with Time.com, former CIA officer Robert Baer, host of the History Channel docu-series “JFK Declassified,” endorses the “Castro sorta done it” theory.
The theory that Oswald and Castro were “the presumed assassins” was first promoted by CIA propaganda assets in Miami two days after JFK was killed. In 2012, it was revived, with additional evidence, by former CIA analyst, Brian Latell.
You can read my interview of Latell here where he makes his case.
What did you think of the first installment in this six-part series? I’m especially interested in errors of fact. Comments with links will get preferential treatment.
Declassified documents reveal that Oswald met with the Cold War enemies of the United States, both Russia and Cuba, only eight weeks before JFK’s assassination.
This claim, made by the producers of new History Channel docu-series JFK Declassified: Tracking Oswald, is not new. The claim may just be promotional hype for the series which begins tonight and runs through May 30. But, from long experience with JFK documentaries, my fact checking antennae are tingling.
It is not too soon to say the History Channel’s claim is potentially misleading.
