JFK and RFK: The Plots that Killed Them, The Patsies that Didn’t -- with Comments by Judyth Vary Baker
I RARELY POST AN ARTICLE WRITTEN BY SOMEBODY ELSE ON THIS BLOG, BUT IN THIS CASE, I MAKE AN EXCEPTION. BESIDES, IN THIS ARTICLE DR. FETZER, THE AUTHOR, MENTIONS ANOTHER ARTICLE HE WROTE WITH JIM MARRS -- AND WHICH I HELPED SUPPORT WITH MY OWN RESEARCH --ABOUT THE INFAMOUS DARTMOUTH PROFESSOR WHO CLAIMED THE BACKYARD PHOTOS WERE NOT FAKED --A FLAWED ANALYSIS USING PIXELATION ANALYSIS OF ORIGINALLY NON-PIXELATED PHOTOS (YES, HE DID!) USING A PORTION OF A COPY OF A COPY OF A SINGLE PHOTO (YES, HE DID!)-- RATHER LIKE PUBLISHING WHAT AN ICE CREAM BAR IS MADE OF BY TAKING PICTURES OF THE WOODEN STICK THAT HELD IT. THAT THE FELLOW HAPPENED TO HAVE HIS LAB FUNDED BY A U.S. GOVERNMENT SECRET AGENCY SHOULD COME AS NO SURPRISE.
THE STORY BELOW IS A GOOD SUMMARY OF THE COVER-UP EFFORTS IN THE JFK AND RFK ASSASSINATION CASES. TODAY, THE FBI RELEASED INFORMATION PROVING THAT TED KENNEDY RECEIVED NUMEROUS DEATH THREATS DURING HIS LIFE, AS WELL:
New FBI Docs Show Kennedy Death Threats
Most of the secret FBI files on the late Sen. Edward Kennedy being released Monday concern death threats against the longtime senator.
Alex Brown of the FBI's records management division said the FBI would post some 2,000 pages of previously secret pages about the Massachusetts Democrat on the agency's website.
The release of the documents has been highly anticipated by historians, scholars and others interested in the life and long public career of one of America's most prominent and powerful politicians.
The Associated Press and other media organizations requested the documents through Freedom of Information Act requests.
Kennedy faced death threats when he ran for president in 1980 and before that in the years following the assassinations of his older brothers.
President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963. U.S. Sen. Robert F. Kennedy was slain in Los Angeles on June 6, 1968.
The deaths of his two older brothers cast a long shadow on Kennedy's life, and prompted fears he too would be targeted by an assassin's bullet.
After his brothers' assassinations, Kennedy wrote in his memoir "True Compass" released last year, that he was easily startled at loud sounds, and would hit the deck whenever a car backfired.
Kennedy, who served in the Senate for nearly half a century, died in August 2009 after a yearlong struggle with brain cancer. He was 77 and the last surviving brother of the famed political family.
I HAVE PLACED A FEW COMMENTS OF MY OWN IN CAPS HERE AND THERE IN THIS FINE PIECE BY DR. FETZER.
JFK and RFK: The Plots that Killed Them, The Patsies that Didn’t
by James Fetzer*
Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated 42 years ago in the midst of his campaign for the U.S. presidency. Largely overshadowed by the death of his brother, President John F. Kennedy, the official account of RFK’s tragic end, allegedly shot down by a lone gunman, like his brother, has received vastly less attention. In both instances, we are looking at staged events that fit into a recurrent pattern in U.S. and world history where innocent individuals (or “patsies”) are baited and framed for cover-up purposes. Professor James H. Fetzer, an expert in the scientific study of assassinations, provides a sketch of how we know what happened to them and why, where RFK’s assassination was in part intended to prevent a reinvestigation into his brother’s death.
13 June 2010
A persistent myth of American history is that lone assassins were responsible for the deaths of Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King and Robert Francis Kennedy. But four of the Lincoln conspirators were hanged from the same gallows at the same time .
===YET ALL YOU EVER HEAR IS THE NAME "JOHN WILKES BOOTH." JVB===
On June 5, 1968, after RFK won the Democratic primary in California, he was shot down as he passed through the pantry of the Ambassador Hotel. The official account maintains that he was taken out by a lone, demented gunman, Sirhan Sirhan, a Palestinian who had written, “RFK must die!”, over and over in a notebook. Like the lone, demented gunman accused of assassinating his brother, John, both murders were products of conspiracies, where Sirhan Sirhan, like Lee Harvey Oswald, was designated as the patsy.
===SIRHAN'S LAWYER, MR. LAWRENCE TEETER, CALLED ME ONE NIGHT IN DECEMBER, 2003, EXHAUSTED AND WORRIED. HE TOLD ME HE HAD EVIDENCE THAT SIRHAN WAS INNOCENT, BUT THAT HE COULD NOT GET A RETRIAL. HE DIED TWO YEARS LATER OF LYMPHOMA CANCER. WILLIAM KELLY WROTE THIS ABOUT TEETER:
After Teeter died, a group of people entered his home, evicted his live-in housekeeper, and ransacked the house for three days before Teeter's girlfriend and mother could get the local Bar Association to intervene and take custody of his papers.
When the housekeeper and Teeter's girlfriend first complained to the LAPD, they considered it a domestic issue and not a criminal one, especially when told it was SBS's attorney, and only acted with the Bar Association, who now has custody of the hard copy documents and records. Teeter's computer disapeared, and was probably sold.
If any attorney would like to inquire about this further, I can provide names and numbers. I also have the auto license plate numbers, descriptions of cars and names of those who did this, which the LAPD considers a petty crime.
In spite of their history, most Americans continue to believe that their nation is “an exception” and that, while conspiracies occur elsewhere, including Europe and the Middle East, especially, they do not occur at home. The truth, of course, is that conspiracies are as American as apple pie. All that they require is collaboration between two or more individuals to bring about an illegal end. Most American conspiracies are economic, but many are political, too. Franklin Delano Roosevelt observed long ago that, if something important happened in politics, you could bet it was not by accident. And that is certainly the case regarding the brothers.
The assassinations of RFK and JFK were both conspiracies. Both involved the destruction of evidence. Both involved the fabrication of evidence. Both involved framing their patsies. Both involved complicity by local officials. Both involved planning by the CIA. Both were used to deny the American people of the right to be governed by leaders of their own choosing. My purpose here is to outline how these things are done, because the agencies responsible for these events continue to employ the same techniques, not only of killing their targets but of covering them up. The more we understand how these things are done, the less likely we are to be deceived again.
Some Basic Facts
Robert F. Kennedy was shot in Los Angeles on June 5, 1968. More bullets were fired in the pantry of the Ambassador Hotel than could have come from Sirhan Sirhan’s gun.
RFK was shot behind the right ear from about 1.5 inches, but Sirhan was never that close and always in front of him.
The coroner’s report did not support the Los Angeles’ Police Department’s assassination scenario.
The Los Angeles Police Department engaged in massive destruction of evidence from the pantry of the hotel because "it would not fit into a card file".
JFK's throat wound had changed from what it was at Parkland Hospital, where it was a small, clean puncture wound of entry with a straight-line incision. November 22, 1963. It was now a large, gaping 'exit wound."
The shot to JFK’s back - the “magic” bullet - was too low to have exited from his throat.
The “magic bullet” theory is provably untrue and was not even anatomically possible.
JFK was hit four times - in the throat from in front, in the back from behind and in the head from in front and behind
X—rays were altered, a brain was substituted, and photos and films were faked to conceal the true causes of his death.
The assassination of RFK completed the decapitation of the left wing in the United States, which had begun with the termination of JFK’s presidency but continued with the gunning down of Malcolm X, who was the most progressive voice on the far left. With the deaths of Martin Luther King (April 4, 1968) and Robert F. Kennedy, the country shifted strongly to the right, in part from the despair induced by the loss of inspiring leaders.
The conditions required for movements capable of historic changes include intelligent, charismatic, and inspirational leaders, of whom there are very few like these. While the execution of Czar Nicholas II and his family in Russia and of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette in France meant there was “no turning back”, removing liberal leaders cements the status quo with its distribution of wealth and power.
Sirhan Bishara Sirhan was convicted and sentenced to the gas chamber on May 21, 1969. In 1972, his sentence was commuted to life in prison. Years later, a forensic investigation concluded that Sirhan Sirhan was not the lone shooter. The weapon removed from Sirhan Sirhan was a .22 caliber, eight-round revolver, with serial number H-53725 . Sirhan emptied his weapon from a location in front of Bobby Kennedy. The autopsy performed by Dr. Thomas Noguchi, however, showed RFK was hit by four bullets, all of which were fired from behind at upward angles. And five others were wounded by separate shots .
Bullets were removed from holes in the walls and ceiling of the pantry. Since there were as many as thirteen shots—some of which even hit the ceiling behind his location—Sirhan could not have fired them all. And with more than one shooter, a conspiracy had to have been involved . Autopsy reports are usually “the best evidence” about a crime of this kind. Dr. Noguchi’s medical report, however, did not agree with the Los Angeles Police report. The evidence did not point to Sirhan as the killer . In particular, the fatal shot entered behind his right ear from about an inch and a half away, but Sirhan had not been closer than several feet in front of RFK.
Although Sirhan cannot have fired the bullets that killed Kennedy, his defense attorney, Grant Cooper, did not defend him on the ground that he wasn’t guilty but argued instead for “diminished capacity” . Another witness, DeWayne Wofler, even testified that the bullets fired at RFK had come from an entirely different gun .
Thane Eugene Cesar, security guard, a prime suspect in the shooting of Robert F. Kennedy. As it happened, a security guard named Thane Eugene Cesar had a weapon with the same caliber and was right behind RFK when the shooting began. Remarkably, even though he admitted having drawn his gun and many witnesses reporting hearing shots from more than one weapon, no one ever asked to examine his gun .
Acoustics expert Van Praag tested an H&R 922 of the kind Cesar had and determined that an H&R 922 had been fired at the same time as Sirhan’s . Further indications of conspiracy extended to a couple, including a woman in a polka dot dress, who rushed away from the scene shouting, “We shot him! We shot him! We shot Kennedy!” .
RFK: Evidence of Conspiracy
William Turner and Jonn Christian  have produced a powerful case indicting Cesar for the crime. They concluded that Sirhan may have been firing blanks, which they support on the basis of witness testimony that his shots created long, visible flames, which are commonly produced by blanks, to insure that those in his field of fire — who actually killed Kennedy — would not be hit by a stray bullet.
That would mean that none of the bullet holes were made by shots from Sirhan’s gun and, indeed, at least one witness reported seeing yet a third shooter in the pantry, perhaps as a back-up if Cesar failed. And the LAPD was very accommodating in destroying evidence that might have exposed those who shot him.
In fact, there are multiple indications that the CIA was involved. A hypnotist named William Joseph Bryan, was on the radio suggesting the assassin was probably “mind controlled” before Sirhan had been identified as a suspect. Bryan later boasted to several hookers that he worked for the CIA and had hypnotized Sirhan .
Sirhan’s defense attorney, moreover, had just finished representing the CIA’s contact with organized crime, Johnny Roselli, which may have been why he was so accommodating with respect to his client’s guilt . One way to insure a patsy will be convicted is to have your own man represent him.
Cesar himself had worked at Lockheed and Hughes Aircraft, both of which have extensive connections with the agency . And even more strikingly, three prominent CIA officials—George Joannides, David Sanchez Morales, and Gordon Campbell—have been identified as present at the Ambassador.
Bradley Ayers, an Army captain assigned to the CIA at JM/Wave in Miami from May 1962 to December 1964, had met all three and identified them in film footage from the Ambassador . Gordon Campbell had even been Ayer’s case officer while he was working for the agency.
CIA operative David Sánchez Morales, who is suspected of having participated in the murder of both brothers. Wayne Smith, who served as an ambassador with the Department of of State from 1957-1982 with JFK’s Latin American Task Force, also knew Morales . When he viewed the same footage as Ayers, he immediately recognized Morales. As he later told Shane O’Sullivan, “Bobby Kennedy is assassinated [and] David Morales is there? The two things have to be related” .
RFK: The Cover-Up
Ayers and Smith both confirmed the person in the film as Morales . They were both emphatic. Ayers noticed his body language (his way of moving). James Richards, an expert on the CIA, provided me with a photo of Morales, who looks exactly like the Morales-look-alike at the Ambassador. I don’t even think it’s a difficult call  .
The George Joannides figure seems to be wearing a wig. Richards also sent me a photo of Joannides, which makes it obvious why he would have been wearing one: the man was virtually bald! While it has been claimed that Cambell died on September 19, 1962, he was Ayers’ case officer from 1963-1964. Faking a death certificate would be far easier for the CIA than having an impostor working with Ayers.
The LAPD was not subtle in the destruction of evidence related to the crime. It destroyed the ceiling panels and door frames from the pantry on the ground they were “too large to fit into a card file” and burned some 2,400 photographs, including those taken by 15-year old Scott Enyart, who was standing on a table and took three roles of film .
When the department created a Special Unit Senator (SUS) to look into the case, it chose two officers who had ties to the CIA. They badgered witnesses who did not support the official line. One, Manuel Pena, had worked in Special Ops for the CIA. He was responsible for approving SUS interviews .
=== World Affairs Brief gives us a brief history of what happened to the evidence in the RFK case (see http://www.worldaffairsbrief.com/keytopics/RFK.shtml)
"Researchers into the RFK Assassination finally forced the Report and the LAPD's files to be released, in 1988. Compare this to 1964 for the Warren Commission Report (the year after JFK's assassination) and it becomes obvious why the official version of the assassination has been unchallenged, despite the obvious complications.
After the release of the files, it became clear to what extent the cover-up had been carried out. Evidence which contradicted the official version was destroyed. The more extreme acts of destruction included:
2,400 photographs burned because they were "duplicates." In fact, there were no lists precise enough to show that all the photos destroyed were indeed duplicates.
Ceiling tiles and the door frame from the pantry were destroyed, because, according to then Assistant Chief Daryl Gates, they wouldn't fit into card files.
In addition, LAPD records showed that they had recorded 3,470 interviews during the course of the investigation. Only 301 interviews were released. Examination by researchers showed that for 51 key "conspiracy" witnesses, there were no interviews.
The LAPD were not alone in conducting this cover-up. The Los Angeles District Attorney's Office was also involved. The scope of this involvement was seen in the files released to researchers in 1985, due mainly to the inclusion of a box of tapes, videos and documents sent from the LADA branch at Van Nuys. This box contained evidence which went against the official version. The most graphic examples were the video reconstructions from 1968 and 1977, which prove that Sirhan could not have inflicted the wounds on Senator Kennedy. However, by using selected stills from the reconstructions, the official version was supported.
The coverup of the RFK assassination has been maintained because the facts are simply not known. Whereas the Warren Commission report was released the year following the JFK assassination, LAPD's "Summary Report" was not released until 1986. The files were released two years later. Both of these achievements were made despite strong LAPD/LADA resistance, for obvious reasons.
The RFK assassination was not investigated by the House Select Commitee on Assassinations because of the seemingly open and shut nature of the case. Now that the facts are known, perhaps it is time that the RFK assassination was investigated.
The Shadow of Dallas
David Sanchez Morales also appears to have been involved in the assassination of RFK's brother, John, on November 22, 1963. He said to friends while drinking heavily that he had been in Dallas (“We took care of that son-of-a-bitch!”) and in Los Angeles (where “We got the little bastard!”) .
His involvement was confirmed by E. Howard Hunt, who told his son, St. John, that those who were responsible for the assassination of the 35th president included LBJ and CIA officials Cord Meyer, David Atlee Philips, William Harvey, and Morales . Others who knew Lyndon well have also implicated him  . And high-level involvement by the government has been confirmed by multiple lines of investigation.
There are more than 15 indications of Secret Service complicity in setting JFK up for the hit . Two agents assigned to the limousine were left behind at Love Field. The flat-bed truck for reporters to that should have preceded the limo was cancelled. The motorcycle escort was cut down to four and was instructed not to ride ahead of the rear wheels. Open windows were not covered, the manhole covers not welded, and the crowd was allowed to spill into the street.
Dubbed as the “Moorman Polaroid”, the picture captures the moment when President Kennedy was shot. Most strikingly, the vehicles were in the wrong order, with the Lincoln first, when it should have been in the middle. This was such a blatant violation of protocol that any security expert could have detected it, which is undoubtedly why, when the Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB) asked for the Presidential Protection Records for other JFK motor-cades, the agency, instead of providing them, destroyed them .
The route was changed just days before the event and included a turn of more than 90°, in violation of Secret Service protocol. After bullets began to be fired, the driver, William Greer, pulled the limo to the left and to a halt . At Parkland Hospital, agents got a bucket of water and a sponge and washed brains and blood from the crime scene .
The limousine was taken back to Ford and on Monday, November 25, the day of the formal state funeral, it was stripped to bare metal and rebuilt, including replacing the windshield, which had a through-and-through bullet hole, which spectators had noticed at Parkland and the Ford official responsible for its replacement confirmed, where the Secret Service would later produce yet a third windshield which had only interior cracks .
JFK: The “Magic Bullet”
Two wounds were widely reported on radio and television that day, a wound to the throat and a massive wound at the back of the cranium, which was caused by a shot that entered his right temple . Both wounds were observed by many experienced physicians at Parkland Hospital. Charles Crenshaw, M.D., who closed JFK’s eyes before he was placed into the bronze ceremonial casket, sent me drawings of the wound to the throat and of the exit wound to the head .
Malcolm Perry, M.D., who had made the incision, described the throat wound as a “wound of entry” three times during the Parkland press conference, which began at 2:16 PM . The Warren Commission would cope with these problems by simply reversing the trajectories, turning the throat wound into a wound of exit, where the damage to the cranium was altered to make it look more like the effect of a bullet fired from above and behind .
The greatest problem arose from the discovery that, of the three shots it claimed to have been fired, one had missed and injured a bystander named James Tague. The FBI and Secret Service had concluded that each of the alleged shots had hit: that JFK had been hit in the back, that Texas Governor John Connally had been hit in the back, and that JFK had been hit in the head, which killed him.
Since one shot had missed, the commission now had to create an alternative explanation, claiming the bullet that hit JFK in the back had passed through his neck and exited from his throat, then entered the back of Connally, shattering a rib, existing his chest, damaging his right wrist and finally embedding itself in his left thigh, a most unlikely scenario that is known as the “magic bullet” theory .
To make the “magic bullet” theory remotely plausible, Gerald Ford (R-MI), a member of the commission, had the description of the wound to the back changed from “his uppermost back”, which was already an exaggeration, to “the back of his neck”, which would not become known to the public until the first releases from the ARRB .
Even The Warren Report (1964) located the hole in the jacket 5 3/8” below the collar and 1 1/8” to the right of its center seam and the hole in the shirt was 5 ¾” below the collar and 1 1/8” right of its center seam  — a location that corresponds to an autopsy sketch, an FBI sketch, the death certificate by the president’s personal physician and even reenactment photographs by the commission’s own staff.
JFK: The Cover-Up
A downward bullet at this location means that the throat wound and Connally’s had been caused by other shots and other shooters . Michael Baden, M.D., who chaired the medical panel for the the House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA), when it reinvestigated the crime in 1977-78, said, on the 40th observance of the assassination, that if the “magic bullet” theory were false, then there had to have been at least six shots from three directions .
It is not only false and provably false but turns out to be anatomically impossible, since cervical vertebrae intervene . David W. Mantik, M.D., Ph.D., has shown JFK was hit four times—in the throat from in front, in the back from behind, and twice in the head both from in front and behind . Connally was hit at least once from the side — as he was turning to the left — and at least one shot had missed. So Baden was right for the wrong reasons.
Mantik, moreover, studied the autopsy X-rays using the method of optical densitometry to determine the relative density of the objects whose exposure to X-rays had created the images . He found an area at the back of the head that had been “patched” using material that was too dense to be human bone and that a 6.5mm metallic slice had been added to other X-rays in an apparent effort to connect the shooting with an obscure Italian weapon Lee Oswald was alleged to have used.
===Note that "The Hollywood Seven," top film restoration experts in Hollywood, led by post-production specialist and researcher Sydney Wilkinson, worked with a true copy of the Zapruder film. Douglas Horne in his excellent books, Inside the ARRB, describes how the analysis made by "The Hollywood Seven" under Wilkinson's direction determined that the back of Kennedy's head had been painted black, hiding the blow-out evidence of a bullet striking him from THE FRONT. Oswald, of course, was located BEHIND JFK's car. In addition, the paint job was "crude," said the experts. Red paint was also splotched over the right front of JFK's head to make it seem that blood erupted, caused by a shot from behind. But nothing could hide JFK's back-and-to-the-left motion, for which a "jet effect" was concocted, saying the impact of the shot from behind created the opposite of the expected reaction --despite the personal experiences of innumerable soldiers and hunters who know better. It is now perfectly clear that the Zapruder film was used to destroy the truth, not present it. US government agencies were in charge of the handling of that film.===
Lee Harvey Oswald was framed for the assassination of JFK, where "the backyard photos" were part of the operation. See Jim Fetzer and Jim Marrs, "The Dartmouth JFK-Photo Fiasco" (google).
Ironically, while the death certificates and the autopsy report state that JFK was killed by high-velocity bullets, the Mannlicher-Carcano only has a muzzle velocity of 2,000 fps . Since high velocities are above 2,600 fps, the Mannlicher-Carcano does not qualify . So the weapon that Oswald is alleged to have used cannot have fired the bullets that killed JFK.
===Some researchers protest that "high velocity" descriptions have changed over the years. However, there is no doubt that a muzzle velocity of 2,000 fps was not impressive.===
JFK: The Controversy Endures
==But this may be the year that everything changes! DO read the book Me & Lee, as well as Ed Haslam's Dr. Mary's Monkey -- along with James Douglass' JFK and the Unspeakable --Whe He Died and Why It Matters-- and spread the word! Let us see no more assassinations of our elected leaders. Let us never again hear the roll of drums, see the riderless horse, watch the black caisson draped with the American flag as a president or great leader is taken for burial, felled by a supposed -- but likely fake 'lone nut' that so conveniently hides a conspiracy. Do not allow disinfo czars to tell you that "conspiracy theorists" are nut jobs. If we are silenced, then what cassandra will rise to warn you?
We have been warned three times now that in America, this is the tactic to be used. The official version is always to be believed -- without a single doubt. The official verdict for those who do not believe is that they are crazy. No conspirators are ever supposed to have ever existed in our country. God forbid, bankers and oil companies never conspire, either! Only in other countries do conspiracies "sometimes" exist. Really?==
The Weapon and the Wounds
Even if the weapon had been far better, such as the M-1 on which he had been trained, the shots themselves were highly improbable. The interactive internet game, “JFK: Reloaded”, which used a superior weapon with a properly aligned sight, a smooth trigger action, and no recoil and allowed endless practice sessions before attempting to hit the target, was won by a shooter who scored only a .782 out of 1.000, so he only scored a "C+" in attempting to replicate the shots .
That the simple expedient of locating where the bullet hit JFK’s back is enough to establish the existence of a conspiracy has not inhibited those who want to obfuscate the facts. A controversy over neutron activation analysis persisted for years, as if discovering that bullet fragments found in the car had come from the same lot as those used by the alleged “assassination weapon” would show either the location from which they were fired or the identity of who had fired them .
One pseudo-documentary after another continues to be broadcast over the major networks based upon a film whose revision makes it impossible to reconstruct what actually happened in a determined effort to persuade the public that JFK was killed by a lone, demented gunman, even though the authentic evidence, once separated from the fabricated, refutes it , ,  and . The demise of the “magic bullet” alone establishes conspiracy.
What it Means
Creating a false photographic record of the assassination was crucial to the cover-up. Had JFK been killed in a non-public setting, no one would have believed he had not been taken out by a conspiracy. As much thought was given to concealing the truth from the public as was given to executing the assassination itself. By removing some events and adding others, the home movie known as the Zapruder film became the backbone of the cover-up . As long as it was taken to be authentic, it would be impossible to reconstruct the crime.
Among the most important reasons for recreating the film—which was done using original footage and sophisticated techniques of optical printing and of special effects—was removing the limo stop, which was such an obvious indication of Secret Service complicity. There were conflicts with the film from the beginning . Today, evidence of fabrication is simply overwhelming ,  and .
These discoveries have considerable impact on alternative theories of the assassination. The Mafia, which no doubt put up some of the shooters, could not have extended its reach into the Bethesda Naval Hospital to alter X-rays under the control of medical officers of the US Navy, Secret Service agents, and the president’s personal physician.
Neither pro- nor anti-Castro Cubans could have substituted the brain of someone else for that of JFK. And even if the KGB had an ability to alter films equal to that of the CIA and Hollywood, it had no way to gain access to the Zapruder film. Nor could these things have been done by Lee Harvey Oswald, who was incarcerated or already dead.
As Martin Shotz has observed, the purpose of the disinformation operation in the death of JFK is not really to convince the public of the official account but to create enough uncertainty that everything is believable and nothing is knowable . The reasons are not difficult to discern for those who understand why he was taken out. He had evolved in office from a traditional cold warrior into a statesman for peace, which threatened the status quo.
JFK was threatening to cut the oil depletion allowance, which the Texas men regarded as their divine right. He had not invaded Cuba against the unanimous recommendation of the Joint Chiefs. He had signed an above ground test ban treaty with the Soviets against their unanimous opposition. And he was initiating the removal of American forces from Vietnam, where the chiefs believed that a stand had to be taken against the expansion of communism.
Bobby, JFK’s Attorney General, was aggressively cracking down on organized crime. Jack was going to reform or abolish the FED and, perhaps most of all, he was going to shatter the CIA into a thousand pieces. Lyndon wanted to be president of all the people and J. Edgar Hoover wanted to stay on as Director of the FBI. No one could have explained all of this as well as has James Douglass .
The policies he represented would have brought about significant change in the distribution of wealth and power, which they were unwilling to accept . Once committed to the crime, they were intent that no one should ever pay for it, lest the public learn the truth about the institutions of their own government. When Bobby allowed that he was going to use the powers of the presidency to uncover the truth about his brother , it sealed his fate. And the lies continue.
