The Sixth Floor Museum to hold assassination debate on October 29

Sixth Floor Museum

Home of the Sixth Floor Museum

In a welcome development, the Sixth Floor Museum is holding a debate about the causes of JFK’s assassination on October 29. Long reluctant to engage with critics of the official story, the Dallas museum is opening itself to new points of view.

I suspect curator Stephen Fagin is responsible. I did an oral history of my JFK journalism for the Museum, and I found him to be a perceptive questioner who was interested in different interpretations of November 22.

The two participants in the Oct 29 could not be more qualified to represent their views. Read more

Robert Groden settles with Sixth Floor Museum in JFK-free speech victory. 

Persistence pays. Eventually the thought police will back off, especially if you have tenacious counsel like Brad Kizzia.

No one can tell this JFK tale better than Dallas Observer’s inimitable Jim Schutze.

Charles Briggs, retired CIA officer who assisted JFK museum, was accused of deception by a federal judge

Charles Briggs, a retired CIA official who assisted the Sixth Floor Museum in Dallas as a researcher and writer, once submitted a “dishonest” sworn affidavit in a high-profile arms smuggling case in Texas, according to a federal judge.
Briggs, who died November 4, served the CIA as a private contractor while assisting in the creation of the Sixth Floor Museum in Dallas in 1986. The Museum, which commemorates the assassination of President Kennedy, consistently endorses the official theory that one man, alone and unaided, caused Kennedy’s death. The Museum’s exhibits do not depict or make mention of the long-running debate about the causes of JFK’s assassination, and the Museum’s bookstore carries few books by JFK scholars who dispute the official theory.

CIA man assisted in the creation of the Sixth Floor Museum

Charles Briggs, CIA officer and Sixth Floor Museum supporter

His name was Charles Briggs and he served as Executive Director of the Agency, which is the number three position in the agency’s hierarchy. His obituary in the Washington Post states:

A notable contribution was serving as liaison for the creation of the Sixth Floor Museum in Dallas, TX dedicated to the JFK Assassination.

The CIA’s intervention in the creation of popular culture is not unprecedented — witness its support for the Iowa Writer’s Workshop — but this episode of cultural production is especially intriguing. Read more

One man’s encounter with Oswald

From a faithful reader in Dallas:

“On Saturday October 4, the Sixth Floor Museum’s 2014 Living History Series, presented a talk by Pierce Allman, who was the program director at WFAA Radio in Dallas on November 22, 1963. Allman was in Dealey Plaza at the time of JFK’s assassination, and was one of the first media representatives inside the Texas School Book Depository (TSBD) after the shooting.

Fact check: Did Richard Nixon know Jack Ruby?

Who was ‘Jack Rubenstein of Chicago?’

Paul Hoch begs to differ with me on Roger Stone. I think Stone’s upcoming book on LBJ and JFK’s assassination should be taken seriously because of Stone’s contacts and experience. Hoch finds Stone to be an unreliable analyst who is prone to exaggeration.

Hoch cites one point of fact — about Richard Nixon and Jack Ruby — where he thinks Stone is misinformed. His argument, endorsed by Gary Mack of the Sixth Floor Museum, provides a useful test of Stone’s credibility.

I have tremendous respect for Paul Hoch, who knows the JFK case better than almost anyone and has taught me a great deal about bad evidence. But in this case, I think he his mistaken, and Stone is probably right.

Here’s why:

Schutze on Dealey Plaza as a free speech battleground

Dealey Plaza is not just the place where President Kennedy was killed 50 years ago. It is also the site of an ongoing struggle over the meaning of the First Amendment in 2013. And nobody has covered the story better than Dallas Observer blogger Jim Schutze.

In his latest dispatch he asks,  “Who Died and Made the Sixth Floor Museum the King of Dealey Plaza?
