Oswald's rifle. That he bought and had shipped to his post office box. His handwriting is on the order form. His handwriting is on the money order. His prints are on the rifle. The recovered shell casings match that rifle. Recovered bullet and fragments match that rifle. There is Oswald's revolver. That was in his possession when he was arrested. That was used to kill JD Tippit. Recovered bullet and shell casings match that revolver. Multiple separate independent analyses of the forensic evidence have concluded that the bullets that struck Kennedy and Connally came from behind. From a trajectory that's consistent with their being fired by Lee Oswald, from that sixth-floor window. We know they were fired by Lee Oswald from that sixth-floor window because the recovered bullet and fragments match his rifle. The forensic evidence of autopsy photos and X-rays is conclusive in showing that the shots came from behind. Not from in front. Not from the side. There are witnesses who saw a man fitting Oswald's description in that window, with a rifle. There are witnesses who saw Oswald approach Tippit. Who saw him fleeing the scene. His jacket was found discarded along the escape route. There is all of this, which leads to the conclusion that Oswald killed Kennedy and wounded Connally, that Oswald killed Tippit.

So...if "they" did it, where'd all that evidence come from? Was Oswald part of the plot? How? What evidence is there?

32. You might listen to Guns and Butter on KPFA. It played today and will be available for 2 weeks

here: http://www.kpfa.org/guns-and-butter
Go find todays show on the assassination. There was lots of documentation on several witnesses seeing Oswald in the cafeteria and there are pictures of him buying a coke on the ground floor showing he couldn't have been on the sixth floor when the shooting happened. The show said witnesses reported two men killed Tippit, and he may have taken the real killers from the scene and was killed so he couldn't report what he had done.

There was evidence of several shots being fired from recordings, but believe what you want if you must and ignore the evidence the back of his head was blown out from a shot from the front.

36. Nope.

 

No-one saw Oswald in the lunchroom at the time of the assassination. There are no pictures of him buying a Coke on the ground floor. There are more witnesses who said ONE man killed Tippit, and multiple witnesses picked Oswald out of a lineup, and Oswald's jacket was found on the escape route he took, and Oswald HAD THE GUN THAT KILLED TIPPIT. Dealey Plaza has highrise buildings on multiple sides. The echoes make it very difficult to determine the location of shots. 81% of the witnesses in Dealey Plaza agreed that there were THREE shots. Not four, not five, three. And a majority heard them coming from the TSBD. Oswald was SEEN IN THE WINDOW WITH THE RIFLE. None of what you've said is evidence at all. It's fantasy that's been extensively and repeatedly debunked.

114. Let's assume that Oswald killed Kennedy. It's been 50 years, and they have established

the identity of the shooter. So why haven't they in 50 years prepared all the evidence so that the American people can see it?

That's what I don't understand. There are supposedly 1500 documents to be released. Most of the people who were over 30 in 1963 are 80 and older. I was 20 that year, and I am 70. If you were under 20, you remember your reaction, but you really didn't understand the situation that well.

Why don't they just release everything, all the information they have, all the evidence, all the documents? A bill was passed in 1992 that required them to release all the documents, etc. They need to do that and put the matter to rest.

What do they have to lose? It looks like they are covering something up. Maybe they are, maybe they aren't, but they should release all the information. Why the secrecy about something that happened 50 years ago?

Supposedly to protect people involved with the investigation. Or maybe they foresaw whats happening right now with the Newtown calls/photos. And remember the same push to release pictures of the Dale Earnhardt autopsy? This would be an absolute feeding frenzy! Of course most has been released, but the CIA files (of course) remain closed.

122. All of the documents should be available.

Robert Kennedy, Jr. has made public statements about his questions about what happened. The only family member of the JFK immediate family of four is Caroline. I doubt that the family would mind if the documents were released, and besides the family should not have a say in whether the public documents are released on this very public matter of such great historical importance.

The government invites questions and doubts about the Warren Commission Report by its failure to release all the documents.

The HSCA investigation confirmed every major finding of the Warren Commission. Their supposed "evidence" of conspiracy turned out to be no evidence at all because the recording came from a motorcycle that wasn't in Dealey Plaza and the "impulses" came too late to be shots.

143. Except this isn't a matter of "opinion".

 

It doesn't matter what your opinion is. Do you have any facts to support that opinion? Any evidence? Because all of the facts and all of the evidence lead to the conclusion that Lee Harvey Oswald killed Kennedy. If you have any actual evidence that says otherwise, what is it? Forensics: the shots came from behind. Ballistics: they came from Oswald's rifle. No evidence of other shots. No evidence of other shooters. Lots of speculation about meaningless coincidence that doesn't add up to anything.

131. "those more powerful than the POTUS. Guess what? They're still here running things."

Absolutely true. And that's what makes it so horrifiying. And so frightening. My gut clinched when I read that sentence. I was 28 in 1963, have always wondered who was behind it. Mr. Thirties covered the MLK story, from the assassination, though the funeral, through the search, trial, etc. of James Earl Ray. He's always believed that was a planned murder. The realization that they were running things then, and "they're still running things" ties it all together.

86. Irrelevant.

 

Proof of motive isn't required to prove a crime; all the evidence says "it was Oswald". His motive? He was a pro-Castro, self-proclaimed Marxist. Kennedy was very much anti-Castro, and Oswald would have been aware of that. Marina Oswald testified to the Warren Commission and later to the HSCA that Oswald had a strong antipathy toward John Connally after Connally, as Secretary of the Navy, refused to change his discharge to honorable. There are multiple possible motives, which we can't know, because Oswald is dead and can't tell us. But it's irrelevant, because the evidence all says he did it.

The evidence against him was such that he would have been convicted at trial had he lived. Whether he confessed in the two days he was in police custody is neither here nor there and isn't any kind of proof of innocence.

7. You Got A Problem With THIS ??? - Let It ALL Come Out... What's The Worry ???

 

The assassination of President Kennedy and its subsequent coverup was a triumph for the rapidly growing U.S. national security state. Fifty years later, that surveillance colossus increasingly treats the American people as if we’re enemies of the state. We can begin to take control of our future by finally demanding ownership of our past.

They can't cover up all of that, yet they manage to keep their killing a US president a secret. Because they're clearly so amazing at coverups. (Except, you know, for all that other stuff.)

127. Start with the "What". You get that right, and the "they" becomes a lot more clear.

 

There aren't really a lot of choices. From the inside of government to the outside, you have this spectrum.

A) A carefully managed plat ordered and administered by the hierarchy of the security apparatus, possibly reporting directly to Johnson. This is doubtful because it would be hard to contain leaks and the execution was sloppier than one would expect from the mainline CIA organization.

B) A rag-tag collection of CIA operatives as described by Hunt, using assets wherever they could get them, including calling in chits from the mob. This seems to fit the available facts rather well, and would account for the sloppy execution, while still forcing the mainstream apparatus to pull the wagons into a circle for a full-blown cover-up.

C) The mob. Other than Ruby's role, not a lot of evidence for this. Normally when the mob does a hit, they just do the hit and don't try to include a bunch of head-fakes as we have seen in this operation. This operation was way too cute to be a simple mob hit, although the CIA definitely could have called upon colleagues in the mob to snuff Oswald before he could talk much.

D) Castro or the Soviet Union. Not much evidence of this. There's a lot more evidence that the CIA tried to use "The big event" as a way of forcing Johnson to ramp up the conflict with Cuba.

I think it's doubtful that anybody serious about pulling off one of the biggest conspiracies in history would enlist the help of somebody as insecure and flaky as Lee Harvey Oswald, knowing he'd be inclined to tell everybody he knew or met on the street about it in a vain attempt to attract attention. His wife or a stranger might take him seriously and tell the police about his big plan. No, for a job like that you'd want somebody very professional and discreet, capable of slipping away into the streets without being identified.

Oswald was an attention-seeking nobody that nobody paid attention to. November 22 rolled around and a big-time attention-getting opportunity knocked. In an instant Oswald became the center of the known universe with TV cameras and everything. At last he was somebody.

it's been 50 long years and yet the large swathe of the population who are convinced that there was a conspiracy to kill the president can't even settle on WHO was responsible. Was it the Mafia, Cuba, Cuban expats, the CIA, Texas oilmen, Russia, or the Boogey Man? What gets me is that the conspiracy theorists completely ignore the mountain of evidence against Lee Harvey Oswald. He was on the scene. His guns were used to kill Kennedy and Tippet. He fled the scene…left his job, in fact, after the deed was done. Everything points to Oswald's guilt. Why do conspiracy theorists completely dismiss all of the evidence AGAINST Oswald?

83. Thanks for the links, WillyT

They = TPTB. If not, why did LBJ appoint Allen Dulles to the Commission? TPTB killed him because they learned that he was a courageous peacemaker. And before the decade was up, two other peacemakers (RFK and MLK, Jr) were also killed. It was a decade of Hell, topped off with the VietNam War. They ripped the heart right out of America, leaving everyone numb. I know this, because I lived through it. It was a coup, period.

89. They aren't idiots. There is a whole lot of profit in the perma-war machine

 

And if a President stood up to them today 50 years later, well, let's just say that every President in the last 50 years heard the message loud and clear.

For those who wonder why Obama, normally a fairly progressive politician, pees his pants protecting the trillion dollar Pentagon.CIA/NSA budget, and why he takes such a vocal stance in favor of the security apparatus in the face of whistle-blowers exposing the most egregious wrong-doing, Obama wants to see his daughters grow up.

So Obama's deal with the devil is, "You let me end these horrendously damaging wars, and I'll let you keep that vast budget, and whatever the spy agencies do I don't want to know about."

132. One of their names to remember: BUSH.

"Money trumps peace." -- George W Bush, Feb. 14, 2007

Here's how the pretzeldent remembers President Kennedy:

"Today we remember a dark episode in our Nation's history, and we remember the leader whose life was cut short 50 years ago. John F. Kennedy dedicated himself to public service, and his example moved Americans to do more for our country. He believed in the greatness of the United States and the righteousness of liberty, and he defended them. On this solemn anniversary, Laura and I join our fellow citizens in honoring our 35th President." -- George W Bush, Nov. 22, 2013

Some missing concept there.

147. FBI work for you?

Apart form all the corruption I mean, they do keep paper records:

Which is what GHWB told the FBI when dropping a dime on a suspect an hour afterward. Larry Sabato did not bring this up when talking about JFK the other day, for some reason.



Things have pretty much gone the warmongers' way ever since: "Money trumps peace."

http://sync.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=3669640





Date: November 29, 1963

To: Director
Bureau of Intelligence and Research
Department of State

From: John Edgar Hoover, Director

Subject: ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY
NOVEMBER 22, 1963


Our Miami, Florida, Office on November 23, 1963, advised that the Office of Coordinator of Cuban Affairs in Miami advised that the Department of State feels some misguided anti-Castro group might capitalize on the present situation and undertake an unauthorized raid against Cuba, believing that the assassination of President John F. Kennedy might herald a change in U. S. policy, which is not true.

Our sources and informants familiar with Cuban matters in the Miami area advise that the general feeling in the anti-Castro Cuban community is one of stunned disbelief and, even among those who did not entirely agree with the President's policy concerning Cuba, the feeling is that the President's death represents a great loss not only to the U. S. but to all of Latin America. These sources know of no plans for unauthorized action against Cuba.

An informant who has furnished reliable information in the past and who is close to a small pro-Castro group in Miami has advised that these individuals are afraid that the assassination of the President may result in strong repressive measures being taken against them and, although pro-Castro in their feelings, regret the assassination.

The substance of the foregoing information was orally furnished to Mr. George Bush of the Central Intelligence Agency and Captain William Edwards of the Defense Intelligence Agency on November 23, 1963, by Mr. W. T. Forsyth of this Bureau.

What's a real coincidence is how the CIA failed to tell the FBI and the Warren Commission that it was involved in plots with the Mafia to murder Fidel Castro -- even after being ordered to stop by Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy.

http://upload.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=3669640

A few more examples:

And those who believe "Them" in the secret government who hold onto metadata and the rest of the inside knowledge and secrets are all good patriots, remember what the national security state has done for We the People lately: Kept the secrets that most benefit them -- the warmonger have-mores -- and most penalized the 99-percent We the People of democracy.

That secret government is at the heart of the rot that is modern America. The management of that same secret government, after being ordered to stop trying to kill Castro, failed to tell President Kennedy about ZR/RIFLE. Then, they didn't tell the Warren Commission they hadn't told him. Later, when asked by Congress, they also lied.

That same secret national security leadership would later tell President Johnson that North Vietnam attacked our destroyers in the Gulf of Tonkin, later bug the Watergate on behalf of CREEP, later meet with the Ayatollah's people to extend the hostage ordeal in Iran, tell Ronald Pruneface that trading arms for hostages and sending the profits to go around Congress in Central America was a good idea, got paid big time by petrodollars at BCCI and big bucks from Rev Moon, would help loot the S&Ls and later the entire banking system, and made war on Iraq and Afghanistan and other nations that had zero to do with September 11.

Odd, that long string of unconstitutionality by the people running the cia and nsa and all the rest of the secret alphabet soup in the the secret government. Going from their actions, the actions of the national security state are treasonous as they only serve to benefit themselves -- the friends of the Dulles Brothers, Harrimans, Rockefellers, the Have-Mores -- at the expense of everyone else, the BFEE. And while it didn't start there, what we live in today was made possible by what went on down there in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963.

That specific enough, Riftaxe?

150. Worked for the WC

and they spent a hell of a lot more time about it...I would suggest spending more time on evidence, and less on trying to tie in further lunatic CTs into an already laughable one.

But hey if you find something not already thoroughly debunked, let me know

144. It's not "closed-minded".

 

It's "evidence-based". Accepting the conclusions presented by actual evidence rather than wild speculation is not "closed-minded"; believing nonsense that doesn't have any supporting evidence isn't "open-minded".

142. Why would anyone believe what Philip Shenon writes?

He partnered with Judy Miller on so many propagan...I mean NYT pieces, he even got into a spot of trouble with her over possibly warning a couple of middle eastern companies that may have funded terrorists that the Feds were coming. We used to speculate that Miss Judy was a CIA plant - mostly because of her work in Iraq directing troops to look for WMD.

Why would he stop catapulting the propaganda? It may be a lucrative business. IMHO.
