Let’s talk CIA & Statistics

By S.r. Dusty Rohde

©September, 2017

If you were to ever take a college course on Statistical Analysis, one of the very first things a professor would note, is that statistics can easily be manipulated. The end results of the statistical analysis are only as good as the compiler’s integrity, intellect and motive.

In Kennedy Assassination research, Richard Charnin is one such statistical analyzer. One subject that Richard has analyzed is the number of unnatural deaths of witnesses connected to the assassination, and there is indeed an unusually high number. Over the years, I’ve seen Richard come under repeated personal attacks, primarily by Warren Commission supporters, Lone Assassin Theorists, Lone Nutters and what is termed “disinfo assets”. I’ve also learned over the years, that when an assassination witness or researcher is heavily attacked through character assassination, this is when you should really be paying attention, (though there are a few exceptions to this rule).

This article isn’t for the purpose of evaluating Mr. Charnin’s statistical skills on the unnatural death’s that have occurred. I would like to present a different perspective on these unnatural deaths.

First of all, if Lee Harvey Oswald was in fact the lone assassin, with no one helping him or conspiring with him, what possible motive could there be for murdering or silencing so much as… one… single… witness? This certainly wasn’t for Oswald’s benefit, as he himself was murdered two days after the President. I mean, if Oswald did it, and he’s guilty and now dead, who cares what witnesses might say? Yet, there is absolutely no question that these murders happened, and often. If Oswald was indeed guilty, why silence witnesses who could convict him? That makes no sense at all. So let’s have a look at some of the murdered witnesses and suspicious deaths. 

1. Sam Giancana: Top organized crime figure, Chicago, Ill (1). Giancana worked with the CIA in attempts to kill Fidel Castro (2). Giancana was murdered, shot in the back of the head once, and shot five times in the mouth shortly after giving testimony in the House Select Committee on Assassination hearings (actually, around the same time G.H.W. Bush became CIA Director). (3)

2. Johnny Roselli: Top organized crime figure (4). Roselli worked closely with the CIA under William “Bill” Harvey to assassinate Fidel Castro (5). Roselli was murdered (one month prior to the formation of the HSCA) and shortly after giving testimony to the FBI. Roselli was shot, strangled, dismembered and stuff into a 55 gallon steel drum (6).

3. Eladio Del Valle: CIA asset who worked very closely with William David Ferrie (7)(8). Del Valle was murdered within 12 hours of David Ferrie’s suspicious death,  who himself died suspiciously during the Jim Garrison trial of Clay Shaw. Del Valle was tortured, shot in the heart and his head split open with an axe, before he could testify (9).

4. William David Ferrie: CIA asset, pilot flying missions to South America (Guatemala, Cuba, etc) and who also flew to Guatamala for Carlos Marcello (New Orleans mob boss), (See below).

Some of Ferrie’s trial records on the JFK assassination were stolen by William Wood (aka Bill Boxely), former CIA agent who worked for Jim Garrison during the Shaw trial. Ferrie also flew Oswald (Hidell), and possibly Jack Ruby in his plane. David Ferries records collected by the Secret Service, FBI and other agencies remain sealed and have not been released as of this writing. Ferrie also worked for Carlos Marcello (Mob Boss) directly at the time of the JFK assassination. Guy Bannister, Jack S. Martin and Sergio Aracha Smith were also reported to be doing work for Marcello (New Orleans Mob Boss) through Marcello’s attorney G. Wray Gill. David Ferrie died under suspicious circumstances while under investigation during the Clay Shaw trial and just three days before his pending arrest (10).

5. Guy Bannister: Former FBI agent, creator-incorporator of the anti-Castro group known as “FDC” (11), whose members were vetted by the FBI and CIA and funded by the CIA (12). Bannister’s “FDC” group was to support the “FRD” group (Frente Revolutionario Democratico) which Sergio Aracha Smith belonged to (13). Bannister’s agency collected information on both, “pro” and “anti” Castro supporters to resell to Law Enforcement agencies. Bannister tied directly to William David Ferrie, Sergio Aracha Smith, Carlos Bringuier, and attorney G. Wray Gill. Bannister was a probable employer of Lee Harvey Oswald, (where Oswald is thought to be acting for an agency). Bannister would state to Bill Dalzell “cool it, he’s one of us”…in reference to L.H. Oswald. As such, Guy Bannister was ideally positioned as a “cut out” between the FBI, the CIA and Lee Harvey Oswald. Guy Bannister died under suspicious circumstances in June of 1964, upon Bannister’s death, his records vanished, not seen to date (14)(15). The IRS refused to release Oswald’s tax records during this time period, and eventually claimed to have destroyed them, in spite of the fact that it is standard procedure to retain individual tax records for 30 years.

6. Clay Shaw: Charged with Conspiracy to murder John F. Kennedy, suspected of being a CIA asset, many years later admitted to by CIA director Richard Helms (former Director of the CIA), suspicious death (15).  Clay Shaw was directly involved with Guy Bannister, David Ferrie and Lee Harvey Oswald. Shaw was the Director of the International Trade Mart in New Orleans, where CIA assets operated out of and had offices, many times free of rent. William George Gaudet, CIA asset, also had his office in the ITM. Antonia Veciana (CIA) was filmed coming out of the ITM. John F. Kennedy was on his way to the International Trade Mart (in Dallas) for a luncheon when he was assassinated.

7. George DeMohrenschildt: CIA asset, befriended Lee Harvey Oswald, death claimed a suicide (though this is regarded as highly suspect). George was in the process of writing a book related to the assassination and nearing completion. He was living overseas and returned to the USA to give testimony in the HSCA hearings and allegedly commits suicide (with a 12 gauge shotgun) within a couple of days of his time to testify. DeMohrenschildt had written letter to George H.W. Bush prior to his death, asking for his help with people following him, who George thought might be FBI agents (16). George H.W. Bush would become CIA director during the first year of the HSCA hearings, (appointed by Gerald Ford, whom many considered the CIA’s right hand man in the Warren Commission hearings) (17).

8. Winston M. Scott: CIA Station Chief in Mexico City (1956-1969), during the time Oswald was alleged to have visited the Cuban Embassy (18). Scott was writing a book related to the assassination and died two days before meeting with CIA director Richard Helms (to discuss the content of the book). The CIA seized all of Mr. Scott’s materials intended to be published, and also audio tape from Mexico City (19). Mr. Scott was station chief when the supposed photo of Oswald in Mexico and audio tape were sent to Hoover at the FBI.

IN SUMMARY:

These are not all of the people working for the CIA who died murdered or under suspicious circumstances (related to the assassination), but it is enough to make a point. When you look at these names and individuals listed, what jumps out at you? What are the common links? First of all….every single one of them was associated with the CIA. Secondly, every one of them could have exposed CIA connections either to the use of Mob members to assassinate Castro or the CIA’s deep involvement in the Anti-Castro Cuban groups. This was not well-known information at the time, and often times was difficult to confirm. With the release of the new documents by the CIA, many individuals previously suspected of being CIA or CIA assets has been soundly confirmed. Several of these people were also directly linked to Lee Harvey Oswald. What else? How about the regular pattern of records being “seized” or “disappearing” (Bannister’s, Ferrie’s…Scotts)?

But let me take a minute and compare by contrast, those CIA assets and CIA agents connected to the assassination who weren’t murdered.

1. Albert Osborne: CIA, Warren Commission key witness who claimed to have seen Lee Harvey Oswald on the bus in Mexico (20), (21). 

2. William George Gaudet: CIA asset, free office space in the International Trade Mart, (Managing Director, Clay Shaw). Researchers discovered several years ago that George Gaudet’s visa application was turned in the same day that Lee H. Oswald was alleged to have applied for his passport. The number on Gaudet’s visa indicated that he was actually next in line behind Oswald when they turned in their applications. However, George Gaudet stated in an interview with Anthony Summers that he never saw Oswald that day in the Visa office. I for one believe him. I’ll explain why. You don’t actually have to go to the office in person to apply for a Visa or Passport, and is legal and pretty normal for a “third-party” to do this for you to save time (22). It is entirely possible, even probable that it was actually William George Gaudet (CIA) who turned in the Visa application of Lee H. Oswald’s. Also possible is the fact that Oswald may have been entirely unaware of this event.

3. Patricia Lambert (and brother Jack): Thought to be CIA (yet unconfirmed)a “Lambert” was listed as a passenger, along with “Hidell” and “Diaz” on a flight plan filed by David Ferrie as the pilot (See below). Patricia Lambert wrote the book “False Witness”, which is basically a book that is nothing but an all out character assassination of former New Orleans district attorney Jim Garrison (23), (Also see below).

4. Carlos Bringuier: (DRE member, funded by CIA, and CIA connected). Essentially, all of the “anti-Castro” groups were funded by the CIA. In the newly released documents, there are a great many that go to great lengths detailing the expenses, pay format and naming a large number of individuals in the various groups actual monthly pay. Prior to joining the DRE, Carlos was involved with Sergio Aracha Smith and David Ferrie, both who were part of the anti-Castro group “FRD”, also funded by the CIA, (this relates to Guy Bannister’s office at the 544 Camp Street address and Baltar building). Carlos Bringuier would set up Lee Harvey Oswald, resulting in Oswald’s arrest in August of 1963. Then shortly after, Oswald’s interview by the WDSU where every attempt was made to label Oswald as a “Communist”, also deliberately set up by Bringuier and friends. Bringuier would then on the very day of the assassination…on 22 November, 1963…publish and article in the media, again labeling Oswald as a “Communist”. All of these actions were very intentional on Bringuier’s behalf, as he readily admitted. During the Jim Garrison trial of Clay Shaw, Garrison himself would file complaints against WDSU (also linked to the CIA), who he felt was intentionally attempting to derail his efforts. (See below)

5. Claire Booth Luce: CIA asset, …immediately after Carlos Bringuier published his propaganda to label Lee Harvey Oswald as “Communist”, Luce did a six page follow-up story to further expound on the same assertion of Oswald as a Communist in her husbands magazine.

6. Henry Luce: Owner of Time-Life: Purchased the Zapruder film and published the back yard photos of Lee Harvey Oswald. Husband of Claire Booth Luce (CIA). The Zapruder film would not be seen again immediately after the assassination until Jim Garrison forced the issue during the trial of Clay Shaw, in 1967.

LIFE (21 February 1964)

7. George Herbert Walker Bush: CIA Director, …George Bush became Director of the CIA just prior to the formation of the HSCA. George Bush would receive a letter from George DeMohrenschildt requesting his help from people following him (shortly before his alleged suicide). This was a request rejected by G. Bush (. 

8. Gerald Ford: Ford was a member of the Warren Commission and commonly thought of as being the CIA’s inside man (friend) on the Commission. Ford would also fall into disfavor among researchers, as he was identified as having “moved” the back wound on JFK’s body. 

 

IN CONTRAST:

At first glance, one might say, well….all of these people had ties to Oswald…but they didn’t, not directly (though many did). No, what these individuals share in common is they helped to convince America in general that Lee Harvey Oswald was “Communist”, “The Lone Assassin” or who aided the CIA in portraying Oswald as the guilty party were, in most cases, rewarded.  These are the individuals who came to the defense of the CIA or who worked in their favor. Two of them would be rewarded so highly as to become President of the United States. Clearly, Henry and Claire Luce Booth reaped a healthy financial bounty from sales of Time-Life magazine on the Oswald photo’s and stories. By studying the contrasts between those who were a potential threat to the CIA versus those who aided the CIA, the implications are clear enough. You talk, you die…you play the game, you get your “atta-boys” and maybe a little bonus along the way. Now, I can’t say the CIA was directly responsible for these individuals deaths, but if they weren’t, they have some very good friends, the kind that help you bury the bodies. The kind that help keep your dirty little secrets in the dark. But, was it really necessary to hang Oswald out to dry for something he didn’t do? Or was it just convenient?

Facts & Fairy Tales (In the murders of JFK and JD Tippit)

By S.r. Dusty Rohde

©August, 2017

Over the years, there have been a great many false claims related to the murders of President John F. Kennedy and Dallas Police patrolman J.D. Tippit. The facts more often than not, have been and are being very deliberately hidden from public view or understanding. Fifty four years…has been long enough, it’s time to let the world know what really happened, time for a little dose of reality or factual information. This is a step in that direction…a beginning to right the wrongs in our American history and the past corruption of justice. (This will be an ongoing project for a week or two so I hope you can bear with me as the lists progress).

Fact: Lee Harvey Oswald, the accused assassin of JFK and JD Tippit, is by law, “innocent until proven guilty” per the “Bill of Rights” and U.S. Constitution. This was true 53 years ago, and it remains true to this day. Until someone, anyone takes these cases to court and get’s a legal jury verdict of “guilty”. Otherwise, those who state “Oswald was guilty” are committing libel, slander and defamation of character, which are actionable legal offences.

Fact: No one proved that L. H. Oswald owned the Mannlicher-Carcano rifle (the alleged murder weapon) on the 22nd of Nov. 1963, or any time since. (Means)

Fact: No one could say with certainty they saw this Mannlicher-Carcano rifle in the home of Ruth Paine (where Oswald’s wife was living and their things were stored). 

Fact: No one could prove that Oswald had “motive” to murder JFK, then or now.

Fact: No one could put Oswald on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository at the time shots were fired. (Opportunity)

Fact: The “burden of proof” by law, falls upon the accusers  to prove guilt beyond reasonable doubt, not the other way around. 

Fact: No committee, (the Warren Commission, House Select Committee on Assassinations, the ARRB, the Church Committee or Rockerfeller Committee) had legal standing as a lawful substitute for the rights guaranteed under the Bill of Rights and U.S. Constitution. They had no right or legal authority to  subvert “due process”.

Fact: Lee H. Oswald was denied legal representation by the Dallas Police Department and the Warren Commission. (The Dallas Police Department claimed Oswald rejected their offer of an attorney, yet Oswald is on film asking “can a lawyer please come forward” (to help him). When Oswald was allowed a phone call for a lawyer, the switch board operators didn’t put the call through. When Oswald then asked Ruth Paine to call the lawyer, she later stated “I had no intention” of calling the lawyer).

Fact: The Warren Report was rejected as evidence and declared “hearsay” in a court of law by judges during the Jim Garrison trial of Clay Shaw. (The defense attorney’s for Clay Shaw attempted to submit the report as evidence, the testimony can be seen in the following link, you must scroll down a bit on the website to get to this testimony).

http://www.jfk-online.com/pre30final.html

Fact: The Warren Report violated the “Rules of Evidence”, and by doing so ensured no cross examination of witnesses could be done. No examination of evidence by defense attorney’s could be done. This also ensured that no witnesses could be called that weren’t of their own choosing. No evidence or tests of evidence could be done outside of the Warren Commission’s control. No findings were possible that weren’t of their chosen conclusions or manipulations.

Fact: Removing JFK’s body out of Texas effectly “Blocked” a Texas autopsy. (Texas law required a mandatory autopsy of JFK’s body, in the State of Texas. Neither the Federal government, the Secret Service or the FBI had legal jurisdiction or authority over the body). 

Fact: Shooting L. H. Oswald “Blocked” a Texas trial for the murders of JFK and JD Tippit.

Fact: Taking JFK’s body from Texas “Enabled” the Bethesda autopsy fraud.

Fact: Withholding the JFK autopsy photo’s “Enabled” the Bethesda autopsy fraud.

Fact: Bethesda witnesses forced into silence “Enabled” the Bethesda autopsy fraud.

Silence

NonDis1

NonDis3

Fact: Hoover’s phone call to Texas District Attorney “Henry Wade”, was for the purpose   of “Blocking” a Texas investigation of JFK’s death.

Fact: The Dallas Police Department was liable for the “wrongful death” Of Lee H. Oswald.

Fact: Any agency withholding assassination related documents is actually “withholding evidence”.

Fact: Neither the FBI or the U.S. Government had jurisdiction over JFK’s murder.

Fact: Every attorney in every Assassination Committee knew the bulk of testimonies given during their hearings (and denying cross examination by defense attorney’s) would be considered “Hearsay” in a court of law. They knew this was in violation of the “Rules of Evidence”.

Fact:  The following “Fallacies, Fairy Tales or Fraud” were not created or committed by Conspiracy Theorists, but by Warren Commission supporters and Warren Apologists and the CIA who created the term “Conspiracy Theorist” to be used as a derogatory term for researchers or anyone who didn’t agree with the governments agenda.

 

Fallacy: The “Single Bullet Theory”, “Pristine Bullet” or “Magic Bullet” was truthful. (This is false). 

Fallacy: JFK wound depictions in the Harold “Skip” Rydberg drawings were accurate. (False, these drawings are a complete misrepresentation of the number and location of the wounds to JFK’s back. The wound locations on JFK’s body were falsely reported by J.J. Humes, Thorten J. Boswell and Pierre Finck. There was no wound on JFK’s back in the location shown on the drawings submitted by Humes to the Warren Commission. The blue arrow in the following image starts at the true entry wound and points to the fictitious wound identified by J.J. Humes, Boswell and Finck (left image). This wound was moved several inches up and to the right, to give the illusion of a trajectory matching the sixth floor of the TSBD).

Back7

Fallacy: The claim that there was a single wound to JFK’s back. (This was falsely reported during both, the Warren Commission hearings and the House Select Committee on Assassinations hearings).

HumesFraud

BackMark

JFKHumesHSCAentryW.

Fallacy: The “Bunched Jacket” theory. (This was a fabrication to cover for the fact that the bullet hole in JFK’s suit jacket didn’t match the fictitious back wound location identified by Bethesda autopsy surgeons. The hole in JFK’s jacket actually matches the true “nicely rounded” entry wound perfectly. The pink spot on the third image of the following photos shows the jacket and actual entry wound match).

Back7

JFKjacketmerge

JFKJacketOverlay

Fallacy: The Ida Dox drawings representing JFK’s back wound were accurate. (False, this was also a complete misrepresentation of the location and number of wounds to JFK’s back). *Note: Also see previous image. Ida Dox deliberately left out three of the four wounds shown in JFK’s autopsy photo, including the true entry wound. Ida Dox used the closest wound of the four wounds in JFK’s back, to represent the wound location shown in the Rydberg-Humes drawings. (See below)

DoxMark

Fallacy: The “Missed Shot” (fired at JFK) claim by the Warren Commission. The “Missed Shot” was fabricated to support the fictional “Single Bullet Theory” to maintain the “3 shot” false scenario.

Fallacy: The “Back of Head” image of JFK that has been “redacted” is legitimate. (False, this image was “redacted” or blacked out to cover the back of head wound identified by the Bethesda doctors. This allowed the HSCA to make the claim where they identified a new head wound much higher up in the back of the head, which conveniently was a better trajectory match for the sixth floor window of the TSBD…and again, maintain the 3 shot fairy tale. The HSCA could not simply discover an extra head wound, as this would have then been a fourth shot. A fourth shot would have been evidence of a second shooter. So to stick with the “3 shot” plan…it was necessary to hide the head wound noted by the Bethesda autopsy doctors.

Red1

Fallacy: The complete “intact” back of head image of JFK is legitimate. (False, a complete intact back of head image wasn’t possible at the time of the autopsy as the “Harper” skull fragment from the back of the skull wasn’t even found until the day after the autopsy.

Fallacy: The Dallas Police claimed that Lee H. Oswald set up the Snipers Nest (by stacking boxes). (False, actually, it was the Dallas Police who stacked the boxes higher to create the illusion of an enclosed Snipers Nest. 

http://www.tulsaworld.com/news/local/jfk-assassination-cameraman-followed-police-as-they-searched-for-sniper/article_9679af95-d45f-502b-b094-2a09bc29c16f.html 

Fallacy: The claim that Lee H. Oswald was the first or only person to leave the Texas School Book Depository after shots were fired. (Lee H. Oswald was neither the first to leave or the last to leave the TSBD, he was just the last one to be found. As far as evidence indicates, Charles Givens was the first employee to leave the TSBD).

Fallacy: Charles Givens testimony on seeing Lee H. Oswald @ 11:55am. Charles Givens left the TSBD at 11:30am and hence could have no idea where Oswald may have been at 11:55am.

http://22november1963.org.uk/meagher-the-curious-testimony-of-mr-givens

Fallacy: Shell casings were untouched before being photographed in the TSBD. (False, Capt. Fritz picked up and pocketed the shell casings prior to them being photographed, a different Dallas police officer placed them back near the window later, and not in their original locations. The photos in evidence were taken after the casings had been picked up and later replaced by the DPD).

Fallacy: Only “3 shots fired”.

Fallacy: All shot trajectories match the sixth floor window of the TSBD. (The only shot that can be currently verified as having the correct trajectory to match the TSBD is the shot that hit Gov. John Connally).

ConTraj

Fallacy: Lee H. Oswald was a Communist. (False, L.H. Oswald was a Marxist-Leninist and spoke out against Communism and wrote against Communism).

No automatic alt text available.

Fallacy: There was no evidence of another shooter. (False, there is evidence of another shooter in both, the JFK assassination and the murder of J.D. Tippit).

Fallacy: According to the Warren Commission, there was no evidence of a Conspiracy. (False, there is proof the Bethesda autopsy doctors committed Conspiracy to commit fraud “after the fact” and in reality…the very existance of the Warren Commission itself falls within the definition of a Conspiracy).

https://jfkscoup.wordpress.com/2017/07/29/the-great-lies-proving-conspiracy-false-justice-at-bethesda/

Fallacy: Lee H. Oswald got into a Rambler station wagon owned by Ruth Paine to flee Dealey Plaza. (False, Ruth Paine didn’t own a Nash Rambler station wagon, she owned a 1955 Chevrolet station wagon).

https://jfkscoup.wordpress.com/2017/06/14/jfk-a-station-wagon-get-a-way/

Fallacy: The Dallas Police Department claimed they didn’t have the “means’ to record L.H. Oswald’s interrogation. (False, The Dallas Police Department employed two court stenographers and had dozens of reporters in the building with recording equipment who they could have borrowed recording equipment from).

Fallacy: All witnesses identified Oswald as J.D. Tippit’s shooter. (False, witnesses identified a shooter who was slightly overweight, wore a white shirt and jacket and who had dark or black wavy hair).

Fallacy: The Dallas Police claimed that L.H. Oswald stood up and said “This is it” at the Texas Theater when approached by Officer McDonald.

Fallacy: J.D. Tippit murder time line. (False, the Warren Commission claimed Oswald shot Tippit at 1:15 or 1:16…Tippit was declared lawfully dead at 1:15 at the Methodist Hospital, he was actually shot around 1:06pm).

TippitAutopsy115

Fallacy: People were led to believe that Lee H. Oswald caused the altercation with Carlos Bringuier, which led to his arrest. (False, Carlos Bringuier freely admitted in interviews and testimony that he had full intentions on going and finding Oswald to start a fight with Oswald). If you listen to the video, you can hear Carlos explain how he and his associates went looking for Oswald, and initially he wanted to hit Oswald. He explains how he took Oswald’s documents….(he tore them up). There are several documents that make clear that it was Carlos and friends who went looking for Oswald to start this altercation, yet Oswald was the only one declared “guilty”.

CarlosOz1

CarlosOz3

Fallacy: CIA had audio tape of Lee H. Oswald in Mexico. (False, this audio tape was checked by the FBI and J. Edgar Hoover himself and declared not to be Oswald).

Fallacy: CIA had photos of L.H. Oswald in Mexico. (False, the CIA sent photo’s to the FBI, and turned out to be someone else).

Fallacy: L.H. Oswald’s pistol “misfired” at the Texas Theater. (False, the Secret Service did ballistics test and analysis on the pistol and claimed the weapon fired “beautifully” each and every time. They also stated there was no such “misfire” mark on shell casings as claimed by the DPD.

 

 

 

 

 

Points to Ponder

By S.r. Dusty Rohde

©August, 2017

I was asked recently, why don’t I post a list of the factual evidence. While I do have such a list, and I’m still adding to it, and I do intend on posting it. For now, I would rather post this.

The body of President Kennedy was taken out of Texas prior to an autopsy, which the Secret Service intended to do even though it was illegal, against Texas Law. Taking the body “Blocked” a Texas autopsy of the President.

  1. Question: Did Lee Harvey Oswald take the body? Answer: No
  2. Question: Did Oswald benefit from the body being taken? Answer: No
  3. Summary: It was not Lee Harvey Oswald who blocked the Texas autopsy.

The murder of Lee Harvey Oswald by Jack Ruby “Blocked” his Texas murder trial and trial for the murder of Dallas Police patrolman, J.D. Tippit.

  1. Question: Did Lee Harvey Oswald shoot himself? Answer: No
  2. Question: Did Oswald benefit from his own murder? Answer: No
  3. Summary: It was not Lee Harvey Oswald who blocked his Texas Trials.

Transferring the body of JFK from Texas to Bethesda Naval Hospital for the autopsy “Enabled” all of the fraud, perjury and manipulations of evidence that took place at Bethesda.

  1. Question: Did Lee Harvey Oswald perform the autopsy? Answer: No
  2. Question: Did the deceptions resulting from the autopsy benefit Lee Harvey Oswald? Answer: No
  3. Summary: Lee Harvey Oswald didn’t create the deceptions in the Bethesda Autopsy.

Withholding JFK’s autopsy photographs from the various Committees and public at large, “Blocked” the early discovery of fraudulent wound locations and number of wounds falsely claimed by the Bethesda autopsy surgeons. 

  1. Question: Did Oswald withhold the autopsy photos? Answer: No
  2. Question: Does withholding the autopsy photos benefit Oswald. Answer: No
  3. Summary: The autopsy photos were and are 100% under government control, meaning any manipulations or alterations were done by them, no one else.

A phone call from J. Edgar Hoover to Dallas District Attorney Wade was intended to “Block” an immediate Texas investigation into the murders of JFK and Officer Tippit.

  1. Question: Did Oswald make the phone call (request) to D.A. Wade? Answer: No
  2. Question: Did Oswald benefit by lack of a Texas investigation? Answer: No
  3. Summary: As long as there is no trial, everything remains in limbo, witnesses can’t be cross examined, no one can be held accountable or charged, be it Oswald or more conveniently, anyone else.

After the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, a large number of key witnesses were murdered. Off the top of my head, I can think of only one of those that was actually solved.

  1. Question: Did Lee Harvey Oswald murder these people?  Answer: No
  2. Question: Did the murders benefit Lee Harvey Oswald? Answer: No

The Surgeon General of the United States put all Bethesda hospital staff and others present at the time of the President’s autopsy under “non-disclosure” orders. The forced silence of these witnesses “Blocked” any testimonies that could have identified the deceptions by Bethesda hospital surgeons.

  1. Question: Did Oswald silence these witnesses? Answer: No
  2. Question: Did Oswald benefit from the non-disclosure orders? Answer: No

Overall Summery: 

All of the actions listed here happened “after” the shots were fired, after President Kennedy had expired, and after Lee Harvey Oswald had been either arrested or murdered. Lee Harvey Oswald did not ask for these events to happen. Our government blocked the Texas autopsy. Our government took JFK’s body. Our government enabled the Bethesda autopsy deceptions. Our government withheld and manipulated JFK’s autopsy photos. Our government silenced the Bethesda witnesses. Our government stopped the Texas investigation. Every single person involved with manipulating these events worked for … OUR “NEW” GOVERNMENT, think about that. But what are we really talking about here? In a court of law, this manipulation would be termed “evidence tampering”, which is a crime. Then adding insult to injury, to salt the wound of JFK’s loss, what do they do? These people use the Kennedy family as their excuse, as their shield for their actions. They blocked the trial by shooting Oswald with “respect” for Mrs. Kennedy. They took the President’s body out of Texas with “respect” for Mrs. Kennedy. They withheld the autopsy photos with “respect” for the Kennedy family, …sugar plums and fairy tales. 

And now, I’ll leave you with a final point to think on. For nearly 54 years, the CIA has been withholding documents related to the assassination of President Kennedy claiming it was for “National Security”. If Lee Harvey Oswald was in fact the “Lone Assassin”, the Lone Nut, the man who acted entirely alone, who had no confederates, no one aiding him. If Oswald worked for none of the government agencies, the CIA, FBI, ONI, Military Intelligence or any others, which has been the government mantra for all these years. Then the CIA can not possibly be truthfully protecting National Security by refusing to release documents. If Oswald acted alone, and had no government affiliations, there is no National Security to protect. If they aren’t protecting National Security, then what or who are they protecting? Themselves? JFK’s murderers? And it isn’t just the CIA who withholds documents, though they are the most commonly noted for doing so. The FBI, the ONI…and several other agencies still withhold assassination documents. Well…hold on, “withholding documents” is really a misnomer. Why? These agencies aren’t withholding “documents”, they are withholding “evidence”, which in a court room would also be a crime. I’ll say it again, as long as a court trial is avoided, no one gets held accountable, pure and simple…..it’s just one big free pass to anyone and everyone breaking the law. The longer evidence is withheld, the better chance for it to disappear from NARA or any other records, which is exactly what has happened over the years. The longer the release date for records is put off, the more the witnesses will die off from old age, or the more that can be murdered. The primary goal of our government, or any government really, should not be “obstructing justice”.

 

 

 

The Great Lies, Proving Conspiracy & False Justice at Bethesda.

By S.r. Dusty Rohde

(THE CONTINUOUS COVERUP & PSY-OPS OF THE KENNEDY ASSASSINATION).

All too often, researching the JFK assassination can seem a bit daunting, overwhelming even, as there are literally thousands of documents to sift through.  This is even truer for “non-researchers” who aren’t familiar with the lion’s share of information in existence. The problem isn’t helped by the fact that from the beginning, there has been an open assault on researchers, be it murder or the more common mind games and ad hominem attacks that continue up to this very day. Those games are played by what are commonly termed “disinfo assets”. In spite of deliberate falsification of evidence, fraud, perjury, mind games and out right murders, researchers have learned a great deal over the years. So to clarify and simplify the process in understanding what has been learned and keeping the necessary immersion in documents to a minimum, I share the following false assertions and deceptions related to the JFK assassination. I think it is equally important to identify those individuals who committed these acts, as they became “accessories after the fact“.

One thing that everyone needs to understand, is that what I’m about to show you could not have been possible without the body of John F. Kennedy illegally being taken out of Texas, prior to an autopsy…which was mandatory by Texas State law. Without the body, the fraud that took place at the Bethesda Hospital could not have happened. I’ll leave it to you to decide if it was mere coincidence or simply because Jackie Kennedy refused to leave Texas without her husband. The term “Conspiracy” is often used as a derogatory term deliberately used as a demeaning label on JFK assassination researchers. Conspiracy “after the fact” did indeed take place and is provable. So, that said, let me demonstrate.

1. Commander J.J. Humes, Commander Thorton J. Boswell and Lt. Col. Pierre Finck did willfully and with full knowledge “Conspire” to commit fraud in giving false evidence related to the wounds on President Kennedy’s body. The autopsy report by the Bethesda doctors is numbered CE 387 in the Warren Commission evidence. This portion shows all three doctors agreed and signed the autopsy report. (See below)

Humes1

BethSigs

2. J.J. Humes burned his original autopsy notes. (See below)

HumesDraft

3. Humes testifies that he, Boswell and Finck “met” and “made changes” that these three individuals were “mutually agreed upon“. The legal definition of “Conspiracy” is as follows. (See below)

ConspiracyDef

HumesMutConsent

Clearly, J.J. Humes has indicated that he met with Boswell and Finck, and that they were mutually agreed to the changes and revisions they made on the final Autopsy Report which they submitted, once completed. 

Commander Boswell stated his agreement with Commander Humes testimony on wound representations in the Warren Commission hearings. (See below)

BosTest2

Lt. Col. Pierre Finck also stated his agreement with J.J. Humes assertions during his Warren Commission testimony. (See below)

FinckTest2

There can be no question that all three Bethesda autopsy surgeons were in agreement with Commander Humes assertions as to the number and location of wounds presented by him and the Rydberg drawings.If any or all parts of this autopsy report are demonstrated to be deliberately false or fraudulent, these doctors have met and fulfilled the legal definition of “Conspiracy”, making them “accessories after the fact”. 

4. Bethesda Autopsy Surgeons … Humes, Boswell and Finck claimed there was but a single wound to JFK’s back, when in truth, there were four. –LIES (See below)

HumesFraud

In the far left image shown above, the single “Back/Neck” wound identified by the Bethesda doctors is within the red circle. This image was drawn by Harold “Skip” Rydberg”, and submitted as evidence to the Warren Commission. The actual autopsy images were withheld from the Commission and Mr. Rydberg, they never saw them. The next two images (above, right) are autopsy photos taken at Bethesda and released during the House Select Committee on Assassination hearings. These two photos clearly show not one, but “four” wounds to JFK’s back. The single wound claim was a complete and deliberate misrepresentation of Kennedy’s back wounds by these doctors. Not only was there more than one wound, the location of the wounds is equally erroneous. There is no possible way they could not have seen all four of these wounds, yet, they told the Warren Commission there was just one. The claim of a single back wound was an outright LIE and deliberate fraud. I have enlarged the four wounds, and make note, the lowest two wounds clearly show “tracks” from where body fluids had seeped from them. The true entry wound is also very round, as it should be. A bullet “entry” wound is a puncture wound, not a tear. The remaining three wounds are all very irregular in shape, typical of a fragmentation wound. Blood spots would not have body fluids seeping from them. 

The House Select Committee on Assassinations identified one of these fours wounds as the entry wound, they didn’t debate whether or not this was an actual wound, even though no body fluid tracks are visible. However, this was the closest actual wound indicated in the Humes-Rydberg drawings (manipulated by J.J. Humes). (See below)

Back6

Oddly enough, if you compare the phony entrance wound on the Rydberg drawing to the autopsy image, there is no actual wound at all in this location in the photo. Humes also indicated or “moved” the wound approximately 4 and a half inches up and roughly 2 inches to the right of it’s true location (not millimeters or centimeters, but inches!). This is a blatant and deliberate misrepresentation, placing a wound where none existed. (See below)

Back7

5. Withholding the autopsy images during the Warren Commission further enabled the deception by J.J. Humes. Humes claimed it was for the benefit of the Kennedy family–Lie. Drawings made by Harold “skip” Ryberg were substituted in place of the autopsy images, Mr. Ryberg had never seen the autopsy images or body, J.J. Humes was his sole guide as to where to locate the wounds on the drawing. Since no one could view the autopsy photos in the Commission hearings, no one would see the very obvious discrepancies. The sole purpose of moving this “back wound” farther to the right and more upward, was to give the illusion this shot came from the Texas School Book Depository. 

Manipulations of evidence during the Bethesda autopsy didn’t end here. There was another very significant step. All individuals involved in the autopsy of JFK…and others who were in the building for various reasons…were placed under “non-disclosure” orders by the U.S. Surgeon General.

6. Forced silence of all Bethesda Autopsy witnesses and staff guaranteed no one could speak of Humes deceptions, if discovered. The following two images are an example of those people who were placed under non-disclosure orders. This is most of the people under the order, but not all. But, this is enough to make the point. Regardless of whether or not any of these individuals may have had knowledge that there was some deceptions going on…they could not speak of it, without risking a prison sentence. Thus further ensuring the deceptions of Humes, Boswell and Finck would go undiscovered.

NonDis1

NonDis3

There is much more evidence I could add to this, but for the sake of a single article, this is enough. There is clear evidence and “Proof” the requirements qualifying for the legal definition of “Conspiracy” have been met. Commander J.J. Humes, Commander Thorten J. Boswell and Lt. Col. Pierre Finck openly engaged in Conspiracy to commit fraud in representing the wounds to President John F. Kennedy. This is not Conspiracy Theory, it is Conspiracy Fact.

The deceptions didn’t stop here, they continued on to a deeper level during the House Select Committee on Assassination hearings, but that is another story.

 

 

Oswald, Hiddel, and His “Handlers”

By S.r. Dusty Rohde

©June 2017

Lee Harvey Oswald, alleged assassin of President John F. Kennedy is thought by many former and current researchers to have had CIA “Handlers”. Anyone who seriously researches Oswald’s history prior to the assassination will quickly discover that Oswald was surrounded by agents or assets from a number of government agencies. One of the people most often identified as a Oswald handler, was George DeMohrenschildt, former CIA asset. As many know, DeMohrenschildt allegedly committed suicide on the same day he was notified by Gaeton Fonzi, (investigator from the House Select Committee on Assassinations) that they would like to see him. (See below)

GDem1

The Warren Commission, the HSCA (House Select Committee on Assassinations) and others stated the Lee Harvey Oswald was using the alias of “Alek Hiddel” and variations of this alias or “code name”. Usually, any debate on the Hiddel alias revolves around whether or not Oswald actually used the alias to purchase the Mannlicher-Carcano rifle…or whether this info/evidence was falsely planted. (See below)

https://22novembernetwork.wordpress.com/2017/03/18/death-deception-the-framing-of-lee-harvey-oswald-part-ix/

In any criminal case, especially in murder cases or multiple criminal acts, Modus Operandi often times play a critical role in identifying guilty parties. What is Modus Operandi? Modus Operandi is at times, a repetitive habit or behavioral traits used by perpetrators of crimes. Recently, one particular document gave me pause to reflect on the possible “Modus Operandi” in relationship to Lee Harvey Oswald. (See below)

Dalecodename3

The first thing that stirs up a red flag in my thoughts from the previous document is the reference to “a cover for infiltrating Communist groups“. Prior to the altercation between Oswald and Carlos Bringuier at the International Trade Mart, Bringuier claimed Oswald was trying to infiltrate the “DRE”, (Directorio Revolucionario Estudantil). The “DRE” was the anti-Castro Cuban group Bringuier moved to after belonging to anti-Castro Cuban groups associated with Guy Bannister, whom this George Higginbotham worked for. During this same time period, Guy Bannister made a comment to another employee, Bill Dalzell in reference to Oswald, . . . “Cool it, he’s with us“, (as in “working with/for us”).

A thought came to mind when reflecting on the previous info, so let me ask you, Chronologically, when did Oswald first start using the Hiddel alias? Without even knowing the exact date, evidence clearly indicates that Oswald was using the Hiddel alias on the FPCC fliers in New Orleans. Oswald was handing out these fliers in the same time frame that he was “with” Bannister at the 544 Camp Street address. So, what are the obvious implications? If Guy Bannister “provided” George Higgenbotham with false credentials and false name, did he provide the same for Lee Harvey Oswald in the name of Alek Hiddel? Modus Operandi. 

Guy Bannister would be found nude and dead on June 6th, 1964 . . . barely over six months after the assassination. Bannister’s records almost immediately began to vanish. Later testimonies would indicate that some records were taken by Delphine Roberts, Bannister’s secretary/aide and side chick (Bannister was married at this time). Some records were reportedly in the hands of Jack S. Martin, employee of Bannister. Bannister’s wife ended up taking the bulk of Bannister’s records, but scattered them to the wind, giving them to several different agencies in Louisiana. Some of these records were also destroyed after review. But, is it possible that surviving records might produce similar evidence showing the “Hiddel” alias originated through Bannister’s office? Has anyone ever bothered to look? Is it possible, the agency that so many think Oswald belonged to…was in fact operated through Guy Bannister’s agency? The same agency that was overseen by the FBI. The agency where all employees had to be cleared by the FBI? The same agency who originated the anti-Castro Cuban group “FRD” later merged with the “CRC” or Cuban Revolutionary Council. This very same “CRC” group was funded by the CIA. The same “CRC” group was housed in the International Trade Mart, where Clay Shaw was managing director. The same Clay Shaw associated with most of the “employees/members” of the 544 Camp Street staff. That staff included Guy Bannister, David Ferrie, Sergio Aracha Smith, Oswald and others. The same Clay Shaw owned a “Nash Rambler” at the time of the assassination, like the Nash Rambler seen fleeing Dealey Plaza after the shots were fired. (See link below)

https://jfkscoup.wordpress.com/2017/06/14/jfk-a-station-wagon-get-a-way/

When Oswald was questioned in regards to this station wagon, he made the comment “now they’ll find out who I really am“. The evidence suggests who he really was, Alek Hiddel, …undercover operative for Guy Bannister (one of Oswald’s “handlers”) under Bannister’s “FRD” anti-Castro group, a group overseen by the FBI, who’s members were vetted by the FBI and a group funded by the CIA. Guy Bannister, the perfect “cut out” between the FBI, CIA and Lee Harvey Oswald.

 

 

JFK & A Station Wagon Get-Away

By S.r. Dusty Rohde

©May, 2017

Ever since November 22th, 1963, shortly after the guns went silent in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, there exists the mystery of a station wagon described as a get-a-way car. Former Sheriff’s officer Roger Craig stated in testimonies, he thought he had seen Lee Harvey Oswald run down the grassy knoll, then jump into this station wagon and watched as the car sped away from Dealey plaza. (See below)

Craigtestimony

While the idea of Oswald getting into this car remains questionable, the mystery remains. Many have claimed that Oswald “fled” Dealey Plaza, by first taking a public transit bus, and then a taxi. I will suggest this is laughable. A person would have to be foolish to take a bus as a get-a-way vehicle, and ignorant to take a taxi, as often, taxi companies are the first place many police departments contact when searching for fleeing felons. In busy cities, taxi drivers and companies have eyes all over a city and radios to report any sightings of fleeing suspects.

When researching the JFK assassination, evidence is rarely discovered in a convenient chronological order. Usually, the evidence is found in a jumbled jigsawed mess, which was the case for me related to this mysterious station wagon. My first awareness of the station wagon in question, came from former Dallas Sheriff Roger Craig’s testimony. 

While Roger Craig stated he thought the station wagon he saw was a “Nash Rambler”, he also stated he only said “Rambler” because it was the only type of station wagon he could think of with a luggage rack of similar type. (See below)

Craigtestimony2

The next bit of evidence that I found was the image taken in Dealey Plaza of a station wagon with a person getting into the car, (this shortly after the shots had been fired). This image is most commonly used when anyone speaks of Oswald getting into the “Rambler” station wagon that Roger Craig saw. (See below)

StationwagonA

The previous image is a bit misleading. For one, that isn’t Lee Harvey Oswald getting into the vehicle. The man getting into the vehicle is wearing dress slacks, shoes and trench coat…clothes which Oswald definitely didn’t wear to work that day, hence…this person is not Oswald. Second, the vehicle shown isn’t a “Rambler”. This vehicle is actually a 1961 Mercury Colony Park wagon, owned by Mary and “Buck” Ferrell. The “Ferrell” station wagon is compared to another image of a new 1961 Mercury Colony Park wagon. (See below)

Stationwagon4

A 1961 Nash Rambler is also compared to the 1961 Mercury Colony Park station wagon in the next image, obviously these are not the same type of car as one can see by the considerable difference in appearance, Mercury on the left, Nash on the right. (See below)

NashMercComp

While it becomes apparent this Mercury station wagon belonging to the Ferrell’s isn’t the same station wagon Roger Craig saw, the reason it was initially of interest to me is because of a bit of the earliest evidence I found about a similar station wagon. This document notes Ruby, Oswald and a “Pilot” (say, as in David Ferrie) all travelling together. This document also happens to describe the vehicle they were using. (See following two images)

Sta1

Sta2

As noted Ruby, Oswald and this pilot were driving a station wagon with a description matching the Ferrell station wagon, a vehicle none of them owned. There are other points of interest worth noting in the previous documents. First, make note of the date, 11th of April, 1963, one day after the General Edwin Walker shooting. Also, the 11th of April is only three days after this flight recorded in David Ferrie’s flight plan on April 8th, 1963, (See below).

FerrieHidellDiaz2

In the previous document, note that there are three passengers listed, for a total of four people (including Ferrie). Those names are “Hidell, Lambert and Diaz”, of which Hidell is the alias known to be used by Oswald. In the two documents relating Robert Allen Price’s testimony, the LHO/Ruby group was also “a party of four“. In both cases, Oswald is noted as travelling with a group of people, not as a loner. It is worth noting that from April 7th to the 12th, Oswald’s activities are unaccounted for in research timelines. These documents show that Oswald was back in Texas on the 10th, the day General Edwin Walker was fired at.

The description for the “pilot” given by Price is a very close match for David Ferrie noted at the time of his death. Ferrie weighed 182 and a half pounds vs 190  lbs. The approximate age provided by Price is also a close match, “41-42” years old, (Ferrie was 45 in 1963). The heights noted by Price are slightly different, “5-5 to 5-6″ compared to Ferries actual height of 5’9”. Yet, the description of the pilot is close enough to suspect David Ferrie was possibly this “Pilot”. The comment that these individuals were leaving “to fly to Cuba” coincides with known activities and testimonies of David Ferrie around this date. On April 14th and 15th, Cuba was indeed bombed by anti-Castro Cuban forces, including American pilots. David Ferrie has been documented in relationship to these activities. (See below)

DavisSergioFerrie

This is the same anti-Castro, gun running “Davis” that Jack Ruby was worried they would find out about in his trial. The same “Davis” that attorney Dean Andrews tried to claim was a fictional person during Jim Garrison’s trial of Clay Shaw.  Clay Shaw and David Ferrie had a very close relationship. (See below)

FerrieShaw2

Now, the Dallas police question Oswald about the station wagon, and Oswald replied…

StaWagOz

Then, for 50 plus years…people went nuts with this quote from Oswald, claiming Oswald fled Dealey Plaza in Ruth Paine’s “Rambler” station wagon. The only problem being is that Ruth Paine didn’t own a Rambler station wagon, she owned a 1955 Chevy BelAir station wagon. (Paine vehicle shown below)

PaineCar

Roger Craig wasn’t the only one who saw the station wagon leave Dealey Plaza, or the people getting into it. Many other witnesses also said the vehicle was a “Rambler”. Somebody actually did own a Nash Rambler station wagon linked to the JFK assassination, and that person was Clay Shaw. (See below)

ShawRamblerMark

Apparently Clay Shaw didn’t want the car around his house, as he loaned it to his dad and looks as though he was going to sign the title for the car over to him.

Evidence suppression was done in abundance related to the JFK assassination and Dallas police officer J.D. Tippit’s murder and that’s no secret. But two areas of evidence suppression are easily identified which involve Jack Ruby and William David Ferrie. The following is a quote from “History Will Prove Us Right”(page 12), by Howard P. Willens. (See below)

“What was Ruby’s probable motive?”, [“Commission does not wish to answer this question as to the probable motive of Ruby”].

Mr. Willens was a former counsel member on the staff of the Warren Commission. This was the view that the Warren Commission adopted regarding Jack Ruby, road blocking any in depth investigation of Jack Ruby, all while claiming their entire purpose was not to prosecute, but to collect evidence.

The second individual, David Ferrie, was never mentioned in the final report of the Warren Commission. Although Mr. Ferrie was a prime suspect in Jim Garrison’s charges against Clay Shaw, who committed suicide just prior to being arrested. Regarding Mr. Ferrie, the Secret Service would make the following statement,

“The Secret Service report concluded by stating, “In view of the above, this phase of the investigation involving William David Ferrie will be considered closed .”

Without going into extensive detail, long story short is there are numerous “collaborating” testimonies and documents that connect David Ferrie, Jack Ruby and Lee Harvey Oswald, Clay Shaw and many others, prior to the assassination. A very large portion of these documents collected by the FBI and other agencies were never given to the Warren Commission, and never released to the public to this day.

RELEASE THE FILES!

The Non-Existent Richard “Ricardo” Davis.

By S.r. Dusty Rohde

©June, 2017

In 1967, Dean Andrews was an attorney and acquaintance of New Orleans district attorney, Jim Garrison. Garrison of course is renowned for his trial accusing Clay Shaw (Director of the International Trade Mart) of conspiracy to assassinate John F. Kennedy.

During a 1967 interview given by Dean Andrews, he mentions two names which a few seconds later, declares he pulled out of “the air”. Those two names were Manny (Manuel) Garcia Gonzalez and “Ricardo” Davis. These individuals, according to Dean Andrews were fictional characters. (See video below, start at the 2:10 mark, to 2:23)

“Ricardo” Davis’s full name is Rudolph Richard “Ricardo” Davis Jr., a very real, very existent person. In fact, Mr. Davis was questioned by Jim Garrison’s staff during the trial of Clay Shaw. Ricardo Davis, has for years, been hidden in the shadows of assassination evidence. Personally, I think it’s past time somebody shined a light on this alleged fictional person. A good place to start, would be with quotes from Jack Ruby, after he was arrested for the murder of Lee Harvey Oswald.

–“After Ruby’s arrest, he asked Dallas attorney Tom Howard to represent him. Howard accepted and asked Ruby if he could think of anything that might damage his defense.

Rubyjack

Ruby responded that there would be a problem if a man by the name of “Davis” should come up. Ruby told his attorney that he “…had been involved with Davis, who was a gunrunner entangled in anti-Castro efforts.”(1)

Now, why do you suppose Jack Ruby would be concerned if the name of “Davis” should come up? One of the first reasons Ruby might be concerned was with his efforts to get “Jeeps” to Cuba, to make a profit. (2) Jack Ruby was also reported to say to Wally Weston They are going to find out about Cuba, they’re going to find out about the guns.”(3) The HSCA would run off on a wild goose chase trying to connect Thomas Eli Davis III to these comments by Ruby. This path led to no where and gave the HSCA, in their view, justification to not look for “Davis” any further. The HSCA didn’t bother to have a look at a “Davis” already identified as being involved with the anti-Castro Cuban’s and gun running. Typically, the FBI wasn’t any help with investigating Davis either, at least according to the HSCA. (See below)

The FBI had been unable to identify anyone engaged in the sale of arms to Cuba who might be identical with the person named Davis.“(4)

The previous quote is a bid odd, considering that numerous documents can be found in FBI files related to Mr. Davis. If anyone bothered to view those documents, they would find a possible reason why the FBI was unable to identify Mr. Davis. The reason being that Davis had direct ties to Lee Harvey Oswald.

A few days after Oswald’s altercation with Carlos Bringuier and friends, (members of the anti-Castro Cuban “Directorio Revolucionario Estudiantil” or “DRE”), Ricardo Davis would pay a visit to Oswald at home. This was also a few days after the WDSU interview to which the WDSU staff would deliberately label Oswald as “Communist”. (See below)

DavisLHOHouse

Not only was Ricardo Davis acquainted with Jack Ruby and Oswald, he was very familiar with Carlos Bringuier, Carlos Quiroga and other members of the anti-Castro group “DRE” members. All of these individuals had direct links to Lee Harvey Oswald. Ricardo Davis also knew David Ferrie and Sergio Aracha Smith when they worked with Guy Bannister. (See below)

DavisSergioFerrie

Ricardo Davis also knew George Wray Gill (See below), attorney for Carlos Marcello. Ferrie, Jack Martin and Guy Bannister had been working for Gill/Marcello in the months prior to JFK’s assassination. Sergio Aracha Smith was also familiar with Marcello, and had been offered employment by him.

RDavGill

Last, I’ll just provide a brief and partial overview of Ricardo Davis activities involving his “anti-Castro” Cuban ventures. (See below)

RDavisOverview

So, to borrow a quote from Oliver Stone’s 1991 film, …not all is as it seems when sifting through the evidence, things are “a mystery, wrapped in a riddle inside an enigma”…and deliberately so. The web of inter-connectivity between those involved with events leading to the assassination is astounding, mind boggling even. Smoke and mirrors…windows within windows, vanishing evidence, witnesses silenced…records hidden, be wary of those rabbit holes.
