(This article, titled “Under CIA Eyes,” first appeared in Counterpunch, Vol. 25 published in January 2020.).

“I was struck by the intimacy and the smallness of the whole surroundings,” said retired CIA officer Rolf Mowatt-Larssen after his first visit to Dealey Plaza in November 2019.

Dealey Plaza, a grassy Art Deco entry point to downtown Dallas, is where President John F. Kennedy was shot and killed on November 22, 1963. Hundreds of thousands of people still come from around the world to see the spot where the popular liberal president was ambushed. Many of them have the same reaction to the crime scene: the intimacy, the smallness.

Mowatt-Larssen was not just any tourist.

CIA tradecraft & JFK’s assassination: ‘The very top people’

[ICYMI: Part I: A veteran CIA officer analyzes the death of a president.]

“Why am I doing this?” Rolf Mowatt-Larssen asked the audience at the Coalition Against Political Assassinations’ conference in Dallas. “As a CIA officer it’s a little controversial. What is my goal? My goal is to have an answer [about who killed JFK] for myself and my children.” That may sound overly ingenuous to some, but most people in the room, myself included, had the same agenda.

Mowatt-Larssen was nine years old when he heard the news from Dallas.

Another JFK motorcade reconstruction and the limits of forensic evidence

While reviewing Mark Tyler’s Motorcade 63, I thought of Dale Myers’ 3D animation reconstruction of President Kennedy’s motorcade on November 22, 1963. Myer’s work is the most sophisticated effort to update the official story of the Warren Commission that a lone gunman, Lee Harvey Oswald, killed the president for no reason.

(This post was first published on the JFK Facts blog, in different form under a different headline, in March 2013)

The theory that the late President Bush was somehow complicit in JFK’s death has often been heard in the comments section of this site. Exactly how he was involved is rarely explained.

Four claims are adduced to support this theory:

A beginners guide to the gunfire in Dealey Plaza

The JFK assassination story can be confusing. There are a vast array of conflicting theories, many of them bogus, stupid, preposterous, or baseless (like the one voiced by the man who will be president). Others are more plausible.

Even on the narrowest of factual questions–where did the first shot hit?–readers have to choose between Max Holland’s theory, Pat Speer’s rebuttal, or Dale Myer’s attack. And that’s just in the past month.

Readers who are new to the JFK assassination story (and those who aren’t) may want a dispassionate presentation of the evidence about the fatal gunfire before they decide what they think. If so, read on.
