7 thoughts on “The JFK story is soooo complicated”

  1. Richard Turnbull, J.D.

    Exactly! Some parts of the overall evidence turned up as part of the JFK assassination is quite complicated, but other parts are very straightforward, and what’s apparently going on with Johannides’s CIA record looks like a classic coverup of something possibly truly nefarious (plotting to kill JFK) or extremely incompetent (getting Oswald, some anti-Castro activists, and various right-wing extremists all wound up and supplied with weapons and losing control of what in the Sam Hill was going on. No matter where it might lead, the documents need to be released, as there’s no credible case that “sources and methods” or legit national security concerns could be jeopardized in 2018.

  2. I reference DRE’S and WDSU’S (at the behest of FBI/CIA) making a “useful idiot” of Oswald during August of 1963 in New Orleans. During Oswald’s WDSU “interview,” he was asked “when was the last time you’ve been in Latin America?” and Owald answers “I’ve only been to Mexico in my life, sir”. Oswald’s full radio interview can be heard here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_mg5-KCjRU

  3. Jeff, I clicked on the video on 4/1/18 at 1:04 pm (EST) and message states: Video is unavailable. Not sure if you’re checking for glitches, or you should check. Looking forward to video.

      1. Jeff, the video is operational. Today, while contemplating what role, if any, Joannides played in the events in New Orleans, during the summer of ’63, the phrase “useful idiot” hauntingly echoes like a refrain from an old Dylan tune. Useful Idiot: a person perceived as a propagandist for a cause the goals of which they are not fully aware, and who is used cynically by the leaders of the cause.
