Glad to See Column Questioning Assassination


How nice to see a rational column in my hometown newspaper. I grew up in Falls Hills, the bedroom community of the CIA, Pentagon, NSA and alphabet soup of intelligence agencies and learned quite early that two governments operate in the United States, only one of them visible. It might interest the author to know that the first use of the term “conspiracy theorists” appears in a 1967 CIA memo briefing their media assets on methods to discredit and dismiss critics of the Warren Commission.

I just organized our 20th annual conference of ballistics, forensic, medical experts, historians and academicians, authors and researchers into political assassinations in Dallas, presenting the best new evidence in the cases of JFK, RFK, MLK, Malcolm X and others.

The Coalition on Political Assassinations was responsible for the passage of the JFK Assassination Records Act and assisted in the release of over 6.5 million pages of hidden evidence that has rewritten the history of the Bay of Pigs, the Cuban missile crisis and the assassination itself. The Oliver Stone film “JFK” ended with a note that the files were still locked up and led to the public pressure for release that got the JFK Act passed, though not all records have yet been released. Ironically, the records that have been released support the case and the suspicions of New Orleans DA Jim Garrison who was portrayed in the film. Intelligence agencies worked actively to thwart his prosecution of Clay Shaw, revealed in the new files to be a CIA asset. For more information see, www.politicalassassinations.com and read Jim Douglass’s JFK and the Unspeakable to understand who killed Kennedy and why it still matters.
