“I am a graduate of Tulane University in 1966. In the fall of 1965 I commenced flight training paid for by the Department of Defense for students enrolled in various ROTC programs. I was a USN scholarship student at Tulane. My instructor was David Ferrie …. I knew Dave from Sept. 1965 until May of 1966. I passed my Private Pilot’s check ride on March 27, 1966.”

Who was the only man to ever face legal charges for JFK’s assassination?

Something different this week, an overflow thread to discuss the arrest and prosecution of Clay Shaw and the investigation of Jim Garrison. Read more

Who was the only man to ever face legal charges for JFK’s assassination?

Clay Shaw, New Orleans businessman

His name was Clay Shaw. He was a wealthy, discreetly gay, businessman in New Orleans. He was indicted by District Attorney Jim Garrison for conspiring to kill JFK. When his case came to trial in 1969, Shaw was swiftly acquitted. He died in 1974. In Oliver Stone’s “JFK”, Shaw was played by Tommie Lee Jones.

In my view, there is no compelling evidence that Clay Shaw was involved in a conspiracy to kill the President Kennedy. Nonetheless, is is  true that a CIA official later described Shaw as “a highly paid contract source” for the agency in the 1950s — something the agency stoutly denied when Shaw was on trial.

Comment of the week

Bogman – January 15 – In reply to John McAdams.

“I don’t doubt he wanted to discredit Garrison. This was after he concluded that Garrison was a fraud.”

I know it may be hard for you to believe, professor, but that is not supposed to be the way American journalism works. Read more

The CIA retains two secret files on New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, the crusading prosecutor who inspired Oliver Stone’s hit movie “JFK.”

The files–whose existence was first reported by JFK Facts- are among the 3,600 secret U.S. government records related to JFK’s assassination that are scheduled to be released in October 2017. Earlier this week,  Politico and NOLA,com reported on the existence of the 3,600 records, which was first disclosed on May 12 by JFK Facts.

The Garrison files contain 16 pages of undated and unclassified material, according to  the  National Archives’ online database of JFK assassination records

One file– labelled  “CIA File on Garrison, James”–contains ten pages of material. The other–described as “Illegible Document, Garrison Investigation”–has six pages.

Mellen defends Jim Garrison

At the Duquesne JFK conference, Joan Mellen, a professor at Temple University and author of “Farewell to Justice,” sings the praises of the New Orleans District Attorney as depicted in Oliver Stone’s “JFK.”

“If it hadn’t been for Jim Garrison there would have been no Oliver Stone or ‘JFK,’ and if there was no ‘JFK,’ there would be no JFK Assassination Records Act,” Mellen said. “And if there was no JFK Records Collection at the National Archives, none of the books written about the Kennedy presidency in the past 20 years could have been written,” Mellen said.
