    james hosty was fbi agent in dallas assigned to oswald before the assassination. he certainly believed oswald did it, but he also certainly believed there was a conspiracy to cover up the truth. read his book if you think the warren commission got it right.

    assignment: oswald - james hosty

    then there is the demohrenschildt story. unbelievable that the worlds biggest loser would have a best friend like that.

    oswald the radar operator at a U2 airfield, the cia's best intelligence tool, who defects, and tells the american ambassador he is going to spill everything he knows, which was quite a lot, according to his commanders testimony to warren, and then oswalds re-entry into the united states, and the cia claims they didnt have a file on him.  angleton the cia chief of double agents was the warren commissions source of information from the cia. dulles - the guy kennedy fired - was on the commission, gave everyone a book on how assassins usually act alone.

    johnson to hoover nov 25 - we cant be investigating every murder scrape in the country.
    johnson to alsop - the president cant be involved in every killing, (as he is trying to manage the investigation.) (its a local affair - he said)
    johnson to warren - nuclear war is possible over the assassination (convincing him to take the job).

    all those quotes are in Beschloss - Taking Charge, the white house tapes.

    just read the wikipedia page on mkultra. get a feel for how much money, how long and how widespread it was.

    nothing i have written here is any dispute.

    its deep politics. you can safely ignore it. but it is one of the great mythic constructing events, like religions are, of the 20th century.

    douglass - the unspeakable, is considered the best of the most recent books.

    war is immoral. both parties are now fully complicit in the wars. bring everyone home. get to work.

    •  Now that I think about it, you could imagine (0+ / 0-)

      a situation where the Warren Commission's unofficial brief was to make sure that their conclusion was one that would NOT spin the larger situation out of control, and as a result they conducted an investigation that would later appear to a paranoid mind like an intentional coverup, while at the SAME time the actual truth is that Oswald acted alone.

      If you're looking for believable CT regarding this, that would be the one I would go with...
