  • November 22: The Immediate Reflex Was to Cover-Up
  • At Parkland Hospital, the Secret Service’s first response was
          to wash blood and brain debris off the presidential limousine
  • In Langley, CI/SIG chief O’Neal’s immediate response was to hedge
  • Hoover immediately wanted to declare Oswald as the lone assassin
  • In Mexico City, Win Scott’s immediate response was to hedge
  • During the evening of November 22, the Mexico City station sent the
          Mystery Man photos and a wiretap transcript to the Dallas FBI and to CIA HQ
  • Scott needed to get the bad news about the Mystery Man out of the way
  • Was the tape flown to Dallas, or did someone phone it in?

  • After this critically important Hoover-LBJ call, things happen very quickly
  • Goodpasture, O’Neal and Helms suggest a change in the narrative
  • The attacks on Sylvia Duran
  • The FBI and CIA admit that there is no proof that Kostikov was ever part
          of any “assassination bureau” – Angleton’s contribution to the cover-up
  • Jack Whitten was appointed as chief of the CIA’s investigation into the JFK assassination
  • Instead of being informed about Cubela, Whitten is offered Ramon Cortes as a Castro-did-it suspect
  • November 24: The cover-up goes into high gear after Oswald is killed
  • The CIA’s Cuba division said it had no duty to conduct an investigation
  • The FBI’s Nationalities Intelligence conducted no investigation
  • The FBI’s Soviet experts didn’t want to know about the Cuban evidence
  • Hoover’s reaction to Oswald’s death was to focus on him as the lone assassin
  • David Phillips and other provocateurs convinced Johnson that
          a blue-ribbon commission was necessary to avoid the threat of war
  • After Hoover released CD 1, Whitten was stunned when he reviewed it
  • Helms reassures Whitten that he can hold on to the investigation
  • Angleton makes his move right before Christmas

          Hidden Before the Assassination, Why the Assassination Was Covered Up
          – And What May Be A Looking Glass Into 11/22/63
  • My hypothesis of the Mexico City solution
  • There was a joint agency operation in place to embarrass the Fair Play for Cuba Committee,
          right when Oswald was planning to go to Mexico City and the Soviet Union
  • Oswald reveals himself as someone who can work with intelligence
  • Hosty’s observations about Oswald in Dallas turned into membership cards in Mexico City
  • Hosty’s observations about Oswald got clever minds thinking about how to use this redefector
  • Oswald’s visa requests were bound to fail, whether he knew it or not
  • Here’s the verified events for September 28
  • Both Oswald and Duran were impersonated in the call of the 28th
  • This was the only call of the day placed by an outsider to the Soviet consulate
  • Documents have been tampered with to make it appear that Duran admitted seeing Oswald after the 27th
  • The American translators of the tapes were not interviewed for 13 years after the assassination
  • No American ever interviewed Sylvia Duran for 13 years after the assassination
  • The phone caller spoke broken Russian and broken English, and knew that
          Oswald was in transition but not that he was moving away from his family
  • Even if Duran’s testimony is considered not to be totally reliable, the testimony of the Tarasoffs
          and other factors indicate that Oswald was impersonated on the phone on September 28
  • Meanwhile, Kennedy and Castro were testing to see if peace was possible
  • It is not credible that the tape of the 28th call was destroyed in three days
  • David Phillips, the missing “third transcript” of Oswald, and the need for a plan
  • A summary of what the Sept. 28 callers knew
  • Concern grew on Oct. 1 that the FBI office in Mexico City was penetrated

  • Angleton believed Oswald was tied in with the Soviets
  • Goodpasture begins the molehunt with her use of the Mystery Man photo
  • The stripping of Oswald’s 201 file
  • Egerter designed the twin 10/10 memos to initiate a clash between the higher and lower echelon of the agencies
  • Many people knew how to get Angleton fired up for a molehunt
  • The twin October 10 memos meant that the CIA and FBI could now be blackmailed
  • Right before the 10/10 memos were created, the alarm that Oswald was a security risk was turned off
  • The anonymous report of a shooter who was 5 foot 10 and 165 pounds

  • Gunshot-wound dynamics model for John F. Kennedy assassination, (Nalli 04/30/2018)
  • The Z-film is Nalli's sole source for truth
  • "It is therefore found that the observed motions of President Kennedy in the film are
          physically consistent with a high-speed projectile impact from the rear of the motorcade,
          these resulting from an instantaneous forward impulse force,
          followed by delayed rearward recoil and neuromuscular forces."
  • Head Shot: The Science Behind the JFK Assassination (Chambers 2012)
  • A model that works does necessarily not rule out other models
  • Dr. Mantik addresses 21 assumptions by Nalli, very few of which are correct
  • 1: In his scenario, ejected debris only goes forward; none travels backward
  • 2: Estimates that the projected area of the bullet was merely its cross-sectional area
  • 7: The impulse force is modeled ... by assuming a perfectly inelastic collision
  • 13: That the bullet exited at the right coronal suture
  • 14: He assumes that JFK’s intact brain weighed 2100 grams

  • Oswald’s links with Cuba and his call of September 28 were suppressed

  • Despite his denials, Bill Harvey was still involved with Cuban affairs after he left for Rome

  • Did Hoover imply to LBJ that JFK was shot from the front?
  • Hoover at first may have entertained a crossfire in Dealey Plaza
  • The rifle Oswald was supposed to have used had many problems

          at the beginning of 1963 in efforts to split the Castro regime
  • AMTRUNK was organized by critics of the CIA
  • An insecure AMTRUNK operation was forced on an unwilling Miami station
  • During June 1963, the Joint Chiefs approve plans for an internal coup in Cuba
  • Besides the plans for a coup, the Kennedys also had plans for peace with Fidel
  • The Joint Chiefs did not want peace with Fidel
  • During the summer of 1963, Morales and his boss formed the Comandos Mambises,
          working with the military to stage armed attacks on Cuba

  • Whatever Havana knew, Miami knew
  • A REDCAP memo indicates the CIA’s interest in recruiting the Soviet consul Kostikov
  • Oswald was able to observe the reaction of the consuls
         and officers and probe their potential for recruitment
  • Given this background of CIA and FBI intrigue, it looks like Oswald’s
          Mexico City trip was designed to be unsuccessful in getting him any “instant visas”
  • Oswald’s quest to obtain instant visas for Cuba and the USSR in
          one trip to Mexico City was an incredibly difficult undertaking
  • The request for the “instant visa” may have been to probe the consulate
          staff for revealing behavior, and to scout for new recruits
  • A fake phone call targeted Lee Oswald at the time of his first
          visit to the Cuban consulate – Harvey’s people tracked this story

  • What it means to be a defector
  • Previous studies of the JFK case
  • Oswald’s legend
  • My conclusions
  • Chapter 1: The Double Dangle
  • Oswald and another defector named Robert Webster were used as “dangles”
          to learn more about Soviet military plans and to unearth “moles”
  • How to set up a molehunt
  • Ann Egerter handled Oswald’s file. She worked at the office that spied on spies
  • How the double dangle was created
  • After Webster was enticed to defect in 1959, he was used as a dangle to find out about
          Soviet progress in plastics and fiberglass and the impact on the Soviet military program
  • Webster disappeared after he got his 20 day travel visa
  • During Webster’s disappearance, Oswald traveled from New Orleans to Europe by freighter
  • When Webster surfaced, Oswald jumped off the boat and got an instant visa to the USSR
  • Two good looking six footers were now loose in the Soviet Union, both willing to
          provide information to the Soviets – with no talk of criminal charges back in the USA
  • After the CIA’s top double agent was captured by the Soviets,
          Jim Angleton obsessively looked for a mole while Bill Harvey blamed himself
  • The plans to bring Webster home were scuttled when the U-2 was shot down
  • After the downing of the U-2, Oswald's usefulness as a dangle was ended,
          but his case file continued to be filled with marked cards in Egerter’s molehunt
  • The physical differences between Oswald and Webster were blended for molehunt purposes
  • Fain’s marked card memo led to Bill Bright suggesting there might be an Oswald imposter
  • Bright’s suggestion led to Hoover’s warning about an Oswald imposter

  • The book Harvey & Lee is available at John's site:
  • An update of the book, no, but, the website is updated constantly
  • John might regret some minor things he left out of his book
  • The book was written over two years and included everything John wanted in it
  • Since then John has come across new documentation and he has new ideas
  • John wishes he knew then about Capt. Westbrook and the Tippit shooting
  • He believes that incidents on every page in his book could be expanded upon
  • John has recently been writing in detail on Oswald's employment in 1955 and 1956
  • The FBI created false documents while merging the history of Harvey and Lee
  • They made careful selections of existing documents, omitting much
  • Dallas police sent the FBI 225 evidence items, the FBI returned 455 items
  • CE 2003 DPD file on Investigation of the Assassination of the President
  • The DPD initialed their items, 230 items had no initials
  • John discovered W-2 forms from different companies, typed on the same typewriter
  • Why was the teenage Oswald's employment history important?
  • To hide the Oswald Project, the setup for the later 'defection'
  • Pristine 1955 and 1956 W-2 forms still in Oswald's possession?
  • The Commission received few original documents, the FBI provided photographs
  • John read the volumes and then knocked on doors and talked to people
  • Frank Kudlaty supplied the FBI with Oswald's school records on 11/24/63
  • John has knowledge that took years of research to acquire, develop, and understand
  • One report of Oswald in California in 1956, years later, a second, years later, a third
  • John travelled to meet Marines, some knew Lee, some knew Harvey
  • He met friends of the teenage Oswald, some knew Lee, some knew Harvey
  • John interviewed employers of Oswald, some knew Lee, some knew Harvey
  • Harvey & Lee is the overall view, John's site goes in depth one item at a time
  • If John could have the answer to one question, what would that be?
  • DNA from Robert's children compared to DNA from Marina's children
  • Has there been a book or show solely opposing John's work?
  • No, they would have to explain hundreds of things
  • More focus on what Commissioner Allen Dulles was doing to cover things up
  • Dulles sidestepped the year 1947 during Robert Oswald's testimony
  • Dulles deleted some testimony given by FBI Agent Cadigan (1) (2)
  • The testimony of William Wulf, Liebeler held him to the years 1954-55
  • Does John have an opinion on the exhumation of Oswald? No
  • Is John aware of acceptance of Harvey and Lee in the research community?
  • No. He doesn't have a lot of contact. People have their opinions
  • Has John ever detected any interest in him by any members of the National Security State?
  • No. But he also did not write his book in 1965
  • What role did Lee play leading up to the assassination - was he one of the doubles?
  • He was the only double in John's opinion. Lee was setting up Harvey
  • Why did Harvey and the caretaker Marguerite travel to North Dakota in 1953?
  • Good question. Gary Severson interviewed people in Stanley who remembered Marguerite
  • It appears that Lee, his mother and two brothers, voluntarily
          agreed to participate in the fake defector program. Comments?
  • The two women knew, Robert knew, John knew there was something going on
  • He was going to answer the Warren Commission truthfully and he did
  • Robert had almost no contact with Marina and her children,
          does the same hold true for Edward John Pic?
  • John got that information from Rachel Oswald, he doesn't know about Pic
  • What happened to the American born Lee and his mother
          Marguerite Claverie Oswald after the assassination?
  • The caretaker Marguerite answered many biographical answers incorrectly
  • John's suspicions were confirmed when he was shown a photo of the real Marguerite
  • The last we know of Marguerite Claverie, she was working at Goldring's @1960
  • Lee was last seen 11/23/63 driving a car, or perhaps exiting a plane in Roswell, NM
  • Look for John's latest write up, available within a week on his site

  • Michael's review of See No Evil: at
  • See No Evil: The JFK Assassination and the U.S. Media (Jim DeBrosse 2018)
  • The first half of the book is a general overview of the state of research
  • DeBrosse is fully versed in the historiography and is current through 2018
  • The latter half focuses on Israel being involved, with very little evidence
  • Angleton's involvement with Israeli Intelligence is not compelling
  • DeBrosse's footnotes indicate his primary research
  • He did a good job listing and categorizing many researchers and books
  • His interesting personal journey started with Ruby shooting Oswald
  • Michael's recent review of C.D. Jackson: (Stern 2012) (BOR 875)
  • The book's strength is DeBrosse's insight on how the cover-up was possible
  • A window into the recent overly redacted document dumps
  • Don't expect a written plotter's plan with a list of the shooters
  • We've all solved the case, the incomplete puzzle is still important
  • This book succeeds in showing overwhelming evidence of conspiracy
  • The angle on Israel is quite forced, a stretching of his evidence
  • They didn't just turn off Mockingbird, a successful program
  • Most people don't know anything about the conspiratorial assassinations
  • We live in Sheldon Wolin's Inverted Totalitarianism
  • The 2017 National Defense Authorization Act
  • We don't have a Gulag, just a well-oiled machine that keeps people in the dark
  • The effort of Kennedys and King and Black Op Radio is working
  • The JFK case is a Rubik's Cube exercise of critical thinking
  • Michael highly recommends Jim DeBrosse's well-written book

  • That U-2 was not carrying the usual and best camera
  • Powers said the plane was not hit, but suffered from the nearby explosion
  • He parachuted safely, was captured, and taken to Lubianka prison
  • The U.S. believed the plane and pilot were destroyed and put out a cover story
  • Khrushchev gave Eisenhower the chance to explain fully
  • "Who sent this plane? ... the commander in chief ... or U.S. brasshats"
  • The plane and pilot should have been sanitized to prevent U.S. identification

  • The U2 people were the most surprised that the plane was up there, office of Cover and Deception
  • Détente between Khrushchev and Eisenhower, a NASA atmospheric research airplane
  • The order for no overflights was nonexclusive, then this flight took off, Dulles was uncertain about the facts
  • Procedure for assigning a pilot to a certain plane for a certain flight, nothing in his pockets
  • The planned summit meeting was cancelled, it had been scheduled for May 10th 1960 in Paris
  • Cancelling of all overflights, Eisenhower certainly did not approve that flight, we had a cover story
  • At first Khrushchev withheld the fact that the pilot was alive, embarrassed Eisenhower
  • They were hiding that somebody else sent the plane out
  • The special camera was removed and they put a regular camera in it, they knew it was going to go down
  • Prouty wouldn't divulge the four names of the men who sent it, them, they were employees

  • In each case when they went down it completely embarrassed the operation, somebody wanted Pope down

  • If the bottle ran out of hydrogen, he couldn't restart, surrounded by MIGs, he glided down and landed in a field
