How Shenon and Sabato came to Fake News in JFK’s Murder
After more than fifty years and zero quantum of proof since the JFK assassination, Philip Shenon and Larry J. Sabato insist on the out-worn hypothesis “Castro sorta done it” while reporting how the CIA came to doubt the official story.

Didn’t do It: George H.W. Bush was not involved in JFK’s assassination
(This piece was posted, in different form in March 2016)
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. But, rest assured, G H.W. Bush did not supervise gunmen in Dealey Plaza.

RFK and Dulles: A closer look at the record
“I see there’s a suggestion on your site, in response to my POLITICO piece, that Bobby Kennedy would never have recommended Allen Dulles for membership on the Warren Commission. I continue to believe the record shows that RFK did propose Dulles, and not just because LBJ (more than once) said that was the case.
Fact check: Did Richard Nixon say the Warren Commission report was a ‘hoax?’

Waiting out the Warren Commission, the HSCA and … the American public?
Not sure anyone wants to hear from an “irresponsible fanatic” (I’ve been called worse things) — especially one who hardly followed the JFK controversy for 25 or so years after working for the House Select Committee on Assassinations in 1978, but I want to add to the point of a recent JFK Facts post: the CIA chose to wait out the Wareen Commisions
See: ‘Jim [Angleton] would prefer to wait out the Commission…’(See the June 7, 2014)
They did the same to us at the HSCA.

Fact check: Did the Fed kill JFK?
No. Read this unpersuasive (some would say nutty) article and you will find proof that even the piously Paulite advocates of this theory have no actual evidence for it.
Didn’t Do It: The Rothschilds
JFK was killed for his policy on silver coinage, says “investigative reporter” Bruce Montalvo in this unconvincing portentous video that also locates “the Rothschilds, the Warburgs and the oligarchical psychopaths” on the grassy knoll. Perhaps the ancient banking empires of Europe and the Federal Reserve Bank deserve abusive criticism — but not of this sort. …

Fact check: historian Ragone errs on grassy knoll testimony
“There was no contemporaneous account of people who were there that there was a gunman on the grassy knoll,” presidential historian Nick Ragone told CNN’s Erin Burnett on Friday.
That statement is inaccurate. In fact, as JFK Facts has documented, there were 21 law enforcement officers on the scene who thought a gunshot had come from the area in front of JFK’s limousine.

Fact check: CBS News’ JFK revelation is actually seven years old
CBS News and the U.K. Daily Mail are reporting that New York Times reporter Phil Shenon’s forthcoming book on the Warren Commission makes a “startling revelation:” that Fidel Castro was questioned by Warren Commission.
In fact, Anthony Summers, author of “Not in Your Lifetime,” broke the story about Castro’s meeting with Warren Commission staffer William Coleman in The Times of London on January 7, 2006. (You can read the story here.)
Coleman told the story to Summers at a party in Washington and then denied it in a letter to Summers. (Summers tells the backstory on his blog.)
So what does this episode tell us about the JFK story in 2013?
