Kerry and Reagan and the JFK conspiracy discussion.
In 1967 Jim Garrison began investigating the activities of Lee Harvey Oswald in New Orleans. Ochsner told a friend that he feared Garrison would order his arrest and the seizure of INCA's corporate records. Ed Butler took these records to California where William Frawley arranged for them to be hidden. Ronald Reagan, the governor of California refused all of Garrison's extradition requests. Frawley had previously helped fund Reagan's political campaigns in California....Don't call it conspiracy - our national security apparatus brought Kennedy down. David Talbot:
I know for a fact that Kerry in the course of his Iran-Contra committee investigations asked hard questions of appropriate people about the events of 11/22/63. Further I spoke with his head aide on this subject and know that Kerry was firmly of the opinion that it was a conspiracy and when I spoke with his aide he suggested we talk outside, as the office is "obviously bugged".
I think there's such enduring fascination with this because it's still the biggest mystery in American political history. Americans know, in their hearts, that something very dark happened in Dallas, and they haven't been given the full truth. Polls consistently show that upwards of 75-80% of the American people don't believe the Warren report.New research shows JFK bullet analysis fatally flawed.
But people say, "Oh, we'll never know the truth. There are so many theories out there." But in truth, we know more than we think. And a respectable body of opinion by the best researchers has really coalesced around one theory of this crime, and it happens to be what Bobby Kennedy thought. He believed that the plot against JFK grew out of the CIA's shadowy operation against Fidel Castro. It was an operation that brought together the CIA, the Mafia and militant Cuban exiles. And that, I believe, is where the conspiracy came from.
The House Select Committee on Assassinations, which I think is the best governmental investigation into Dallas, also came to similar conclusions in the late 1970s. Anthony Summer, a very good Irish investigative journalist who worked for the BBC came to similar conclusions in his book, The Kennedy Conspiracy. Jeff Morley of the Washington Post, who I think is the best working journalist on this beat in America, is also looking in the same direction.
The CIA killed JFK: Perhaps next time Americans vote for a President, they’ll ask for his or her connections to the CIA first.
I should read the new massive tome about how Oswald acted alone. Each time I read one of these books or see a documentary I find more evidence that he could not have. In a few years when it goes for a few dollars maybe.
