News and Notes
--by Brian Rooney

Recently released FBI documents on Gerald Ford, made public as a result of FOIA requests at the time of Ford's death, elaborate on his role as J. Edgar Hoover's "mole" on the Warren Commission. Further documents will be released in several batches.

Max Holland was the subject of a sarcastic article in the Washington Post on 7-24. His book A Need to Know: Inside the Warren Commission, which got a $45,000 "Work-in Progress" award in 2001(!) still has no publication date, twelve years after Knopf advanced him $131,000. Post writer Neely Tucker writes that she wanted to grab Holland and shout "SNAP OUT OF IT." A centerpiece of the new tome is his theory, advanced in a New York Times op-ed last November 22, that the first shot was fired before the start of the Z film. For this, Dale Myers calls him "out to lunch". No respect.

New York Post columnist Liz Smith, who gushed uncontrollably over Ultimate Sacrifice, has now plugged Lamar Waldron's new book Legacy of Secrecy, which is due in November. Smith reports that it contains new information on Johnny Roselli and links between the JFK, RFK, and MLK killings. According to Waldron, a street map found in James Earl Ray's rooming house was marked to show Roselli's Los Angeles apartment. Material from Ultimate Sacrifice on the mobster's life and death will be the basis for an upcoming movie, written by Stephen Kronish and starring Dennis Farina ("Crime Story" and "Law & Order") as Roselli.

Angela Clemente, a New Jersey paralegal who has taken on the mob at great risk to her well-being, has sued the FBI and the Justice Dept. to pry loose its complete file on Brooklyn mafia murderer and FBI informant Gregory Scarpa Sr., which could shed light on Carlos Marcello and JFK's assassination. The redacted papers on Scarpa that Ms. Clemente already has contain tantalizing references to Scarpa's involvement in FBI New Orleans "projects' in New Orleans in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Scarpa has already acknowledged his role in helping the Kennedy administration find the bodies of the three civil rights workers murdered in Mississippi in 1964. Ms Clemente's courageous investigative work resulted in the Brooklyn murder case against Scarpa's FBI handler Lindley DeVecchio, but the case fell apart when a key witness was discredited. We can only hope that Ms. Clemente, who is represented in her lawsuit by Jim Lesar, becomes an active player in the JFK case.

Graham Pierce, the last active member of the DPD who was on duty on November 22, 1963, has retired.

An article in an Albany, Oregon, newspaper featured Bill McWilliams, a dictabelt expert who is assisting a digital analysis of the Dallas police recording that many claim contain the sound of the gunshots that killed JFK. The real news in the story is that McWilliams was in Dallas on November 22, 1963, and serviced the machine that recorded the DPD transmissions. There were some misstatements in the story and we are attempting to get clarification from McWilliams.

Space considerations precluded running a review of David Kaiser's The Road to Dallas. We hope we can run it in the next issue. The book, while claiming Oswald was the lone shooter, does posit a mob conspiracy, sticking closely to Robert Blakey's conclusions.

Why was President Kennedy assassinated?

Cuba: The Line in the Sand (may be slow to load)


Master Analytic Chronology:
The Death of President John F. Kennedy
November 22, 1963

(AKA "The Project")

2½ years in the making -- 5,800 pages -- 50,000 paragraphs -- 2.2 million words
now available on CD-ROM to JFK/DPQ subscribers

Order here or via a PDF file here or a Word file here.

This Chronology reports data from a handful of historical events prior, even, to the birth of John Kennedy. And Dealey Plaza makes little sense absent an understanding of the issues of Kennedy's rise through the legislative branch, and those events must certainly be complemented with a healthy dose of information on his presidency. From there, the reader will have something more than an à la carte menu, which will include complete reporting on, and analyses of, the major necessities:
  • The presidency of John F. Kennedy.
  • The assassination.
  • The Warren Commission and its "verdict."
  • The FBI as a concomitant of the Warren Commission.
  • Growth of doubts as "we the people" discovered more wisdom than the experts who had investigated in the first place.
  • Arrest and trial of Clay Shaw in New Orleans.
  • The House Select Committee on Assassinations, and its "verdict."
  • Continued growth of doubt in America.
  • Oliver Stone's JFK and its impact.
  • The publishing explosion that followed hard upon the publics doubt and the media's defense of Lee Harvey Oswald as the lone assassin.
  • The "two Oswald" scenario, as reported in various sources, but most heavily and best stated by John Armstrong.
  • The work of the Assassination Records Review Board, chiefly in terms of the critical medical testimony.
  • And finally, "passages." Just as the thousands of characters had to be born at some point, it was decreed that they would leave the scene at some point, and no understanding of our narrative is complete without a clear perspective of just who was available -- and who was not -- to provide data at a given time. ---Walt Brown

The Guns of Texas Are Upon You:
Conglomerates, Corruption, and the Death of JFK

by Walt Brown PhD

An historian views the Kennedy assassination and takes the reader through recorded history, making comparisons to past confrontations between dynamic leaders and well-entrenched, opposing power groups. American history is viewed as a progression of events guaranteeing the inevitability of the events in Dealey Plaza. There have been 'many Kennedy assassinations...'

From the preface: The Lord God doth indeed work His miracles in strange ways. Oil was discovered in the United States on August 27. Lyndon Baines Johnson was born on August 27. Both seemingly came up out of the ground, were clearly 'crude,' and were clearly in need of refinement. While both the oil business and LBJ were birthed well before November 22, 1963, both were much safer after that date.
In that sense, this could have been a one-page book.
But THAT would be to cheat the hangman.
