149. Sorry to report I have no knowledge of 1/3/64 report...
I do know Bertram has the history of a BFEE turd, most capable of planting "Exculpatory Evidence."

Possible Secret Service Propaganda


Over the years, with the assistance of several well-placed Secret Service agents, many documents and many books have been written that, on the face of it, have a certain ring of authority --- until one looks a little closer at their claims, as this author has done in regard to the follow-ing items. Perhaps many will be familiar to JFK researchers.

In Commission Exhibit 993 (18H642) ,which is a translation done by Secret Service agent Leon Gopadze of a Marina Oswald letter, it is stated: "I am very, very grateful to the Secret Service agents who treated me so well and took such good care of me. Although some of the letters which I received accused these wonderful people of preventing me from seeing others, I am free to do anything I want..."

Give me a break! The New York Times of December 8, 1963 reported that "Secret Service agents suggested to her that it might be safer and easier for her to return to the Soviet Union than to try to live in the United States. This distressed her...She is now secluded from Oswald's relatives as well as from the public." Author Michael Dorman, in "Secret Service Story" (New York: Dell, 1975), dedicated his book " all the present and former members of the U.S. Secret Service, with particular appreciation to retired agent Lane Bertram, who took the trouble to show a young reporter the ropes in days gone by" (p.4). This Oswald-did-it book stands out for its sickeningly sweet approach to the Secret Service's ultimate failure, evidenced in many of its pages and perhaps summed up here best: "In the confusion, one group of men acted with a dispatch and precision born of hours of drill, discipline and professional training. These men were the agents of the United States Secret Service... Within an instant of the time the shots were fired, agents leaped into action. Pistols and automatic rifles appeared in their hands. An agent in the president's limousine immediately grabbed a radio-telephone. 'Let's go straight to the nearest hospital', he shouted to nearby policemen." (!?!)


The-Oswald-as FBI Informant Story is attributed by Posner to Dallas Assistant D.A. Bill Alexander, who, along with two reporters (including Lonnie Hudkins) "printed the story, attributing it to an unidentified source." (p. 348) Actually, that 'source' appears to have been Agent Lane Bertram, the SAIC of the Houston office of the Secret Service. (See The Third Alternative, p. 57, by this author.)
