Stone, 69, said his doubts about ‘Ron’ were dispelled. As a former marine in Vietnam, the film-maker was convinced by the ‘military jargon’ and intricate details within an account that he describes as ‘plausible’ and ‘very authentic’.

Unlike “JFK,” the movie,” this allegation seems uncorroborated. “Military jargon” and “authentic” details do not constitute corroboration.
From a 5-Star Amazon review of Jefferson Morley’s ebook, CIA & JFK
The crown jewel of Mr. Morley’s work details his discovery that a retired CIA officer named George Joannides was called back to Washington to stall a re-investigation of the assassination by the House of Representatives in the late 1970s.
CIA and JFK: The Secret Assassination Files, available on Amazon, provides the fullest account of the role of CIA operations officers in the events leading to the death of JFK, with a guide to the long-suppressed files scheduled to be declassified in October 2017.

If you think about it, it’s true. John F. Kennedy wanted to shut down the CIA, something that probably angered a lot of people. There is also the war on organized crime, a war which was waged by Robert F. Kennedy. William Kelley, Marcus Hanson, Jim Rose and Ronnie Wayne, some skeptics of conspiracy claims seem to omit key facts and use circumstantial evidence to paint one guy as the sole assassin.
Jim , you lost me at “If” !
If this guy is legit, anyone have a theory on who he might have been?
While Stone’s assertions are uncorroborated they do make sense.
And, his role in JFK the Film which resulted in the ARRB gives him some credibility. Corroboration is a hard thing to find in looking into the JFK Assassination, looking at the official story or questioning it.
Stone’s announcement takes me back to my 5th grade teacher who kept a keen, attentive eye & ear focused on the MSM JFK assassination coverage from its’ beginning throughout the remainder of 1964 that I was one of her (Mrs. Rodgers, aged late 40’s-early ’50’s) students. Mrs. Rodgers analyzed the crime scene photos printed in Life magazine as there being too much distance available for JFK’s guards to have protected him from harm for it NOT to have been one or more of them involved. She also consistently told us that LHO could not have waltzed back & forth between the USA & Soviet Union during the Cold War & distributed the harsh leaflets against the US Government in New Orleans while under Hoover’s watch without Federal protection.
What is needed to ‘blow the lid’ off the case is an insider’s account of what was changed in the Zapruder film during its alleged brief visit at the super secret film production facility known as ‘Hawkeyeworks’.
A small point if I may. Stone was in the Army, not the Marines. I don’t care but the Marines might object here. From all accounts Stone served well, receiving a Bronze Star for Valor and the Purple Heart. Being an enlisted man I’d guess his Purple Heart was legit and not some phony crap like the 3 Purple Hearts of John Kerry.
He adds: ‘The scenario he laid out was very practical. It’s the way I would do it, if [I] were going to do something like that.
‘You kill the president, and your cover is security, and if the sniper or snipers who kill the president are hidden in with the guys who are supposed to protect him, guys who have no knowledge of this plot… It makes a lot of sense.
I assume Stone is referring to the Secret Service or the Dallas Police. The person involved may have just made it all up. Oliver Stone may think his source was/is sincere and the information sounded credible. But you really need to give much more detail if you come out with a story like this.
I assume this is all a tease to sell the book and that more info will come out then. I assume… There is no doubt that a portion of the Secret Service had to be involved. His “WTF” reaction when waved off the car is too weird…
Who ever heard of the President in the lead car? With no guards along the boards? Makes no sense. And one of my favorite parts of the “Nixon Tapes” is when Haig tell Nixon that he has a big fan on the Secret Service who would be willing to kill people if it was needed.
The President’s honor guard from the White House and funeral have made video oral history for the Sixth Floor museum and some cooperated in the writing of a book for Trinday and some scheduled to give a presentation at conferences in New Orleans in October and Dallas in November.
