It is true that former president George H.W. Bush was in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963. It is true that Bush became director of the CIA in 1976. And it is true that, as vice president in the 1980s, Bush was up to his eyebrows in the nexus of criminal activities known as the Iran-contra scandal.
But,rest assured, G H.W. Bush did not supervise gunmen in Dealey Plaza as
One perennial question people have about the JFK story is, Who do you believe? One credible witness is a man named Bill Newman. He was there, about 15 feet from JFK, when the gunfire rang out. His testimony is important. Read more
“I recall see former president and Warren Commission member Gerald Ford make an ‘unusual’ statement on TV in the mid 1990s. In reference to the Warren Commission, he said, ‘We told the truth, we just didn’t tell the whole truth.’” Read more
I wish I was in northeastern Alabama today because JFK author James Douglass is speaking at the public library in Gadsen. If I was there I would go for sure. Douglass’s 2008 book, “JFK and the Unspeakable,” is one of the most thoughtful books about JFK’s assassination.
In this video Josiah (“Tink”) Thompson, author of “Six Seconds in Dallas,” who went on to a long career as private investigator, explains how a sound recording from Dealey Plaza matches up with the Zapruder film.

Hollywood’s cinema of assssination, as inspired by the death of JFK, takes two different forms: conspiratorial and sociopathic. Both will be on display at a multiplex near you later this year if and when Tom Hanks’s “Parkland” and Leonardo di Caprio’s “Legacy of Secrecy” open. Hanks’s hospital drama will depict JFK as the victim of a lone sociopath while DiCaprio’s mob flick will likely finger Carlos Marcello and other organized crime bosses.
Here’s the first episode of Len Osanic’s so-far excellent JFK video series, “50 Reasons for 50 Years,” which purports to tell the story of why the Warren Commission was a “hoax.” Don’t be put off by Osanic’s Jesse Ventura-style narration, which is dramatic but not over the top.
A lot of people at the scene of the crime thought so. But don’t take my word for it.
In the latest installment of Len Osanic’s “50 Reasons for 50 Years” video series, JFK photo expert Robert Groden compiles photographic imagery from the first few minutes after the assassination of President Kennedy. View the pictures and decide for yourself.
