What’s up at JFK Facts?

My faint apologies for the slow rate of posting. There is too much to talk about in the world of JFK (the Stephen King movie, David Talbot on Allen Dulles, and the October 2017 JFK data dump to name but three) and too little time. 

I say too because I am now deep into the writing the life story of James Angleton, a story that is plenty absorbing and complicated and takes up most my bandwidth.

So I’m going to use JFK Facts to crowdsource various aspects of Angleton’s story, not necessarily related to the JFK story.

    advice: Don’t use The Good Shepherd as a source.

    • “Don’t use The Good Shepherd as a source.”

      No don’t use it as a source. But don’t miss it! It is a fabulous film, in all aspects. And it gives a real ‘sense of’ that era of intrigue and spycraft.

      There are composite characters, and one should not be attempted to identify any single historical person. The representation and milieu of Skull & Bones is precious and accurate.

        I thought The Good Shepherd was awful.Bland and vague, I know Angleton as well as anybody,and I wasn’t even sure who the movie was about until I read about it. Tremendous disappointment, as usual.

    Thank you. I have become so curious about Angleton.

    This is great news Jeff. I’ve hoped someone would do something objective and in depth on Angleton for years. Maybe in conjunction with Mr. Talbot’s book on Dulles this will increase awareness enough to finally see the files on Joannidies, Harvey. etc..
    I read an article several years ago that might be useful but I can’t remember who did it. I think it was called “What Jane Roman Said”…

    Not much. Some in depth stuff by a half dozen posters but not much conversation.

  5. My question is supposedly according to Warren commission there was only three shots. Supposedly we have one of the bullitts the magic bullitt. But the bullitt that hit his head we don’t have and the one that missed we don’t have. But we have two large portions equaling Somewhere between a third and one half a bullitt measured together.. What did those bullitt fragments hit? And is that possibly four or five shots.

    • Ronnie Wayne says:

      Yes that is possibly four or five shots. JMO.

    • But the bullitt that hit his head we don’t have and the one that missed we don’t have. But we have two large portions equaling Somewhere between a third and one half a bullitt measured together.

      Those two fragments were found in the front seat; they are presumably from the head shot.

    Does anyone know anything about the man and woman shown in the photo in the area of the Perigola on Elm Street.

    They both went down after the shots.

    They were in the area of the Periogla to the left of Zapruder.

    The man was seen looking back and through the Perigola after the shots were fired.
