FTR#1288 This pro­gram was record­ed in one, 60-minute seg­ment.

Intro­duc­tion: This broad­cast con­tin­ues our vis­its with Jim DiEugenio–author of Des­tiny Betrayed and JFK Revis­it­ed–select­ed by Oliv­er Stone to write the screen­play for his lat­est doc­u­men­tary.

The pro­gram tack­les an evi­den­tiary ele­ment that dis­proves the War­ren Com­mis­sion the­sis: the sto­ry of Vic­to­ria Adams—“The Girl on The Stairs.”

1.–Elements of dis­cus­sion and analy­sis include: The War­ren Commission’s prob­lem of estab­lish­ing Oswald’s pres­ence on the sixth floor of The Texas School Book Depos­i­to­ry at the time of the shoot­ing; The Commission’s use of two wit­ness­es to estab­lish that; Author Sylvia Meagher’s dis­cred­i­ta­tion of one of those wit­ness­es (Charles Givens) in a 1971 arti­cle; The curi­ous fact the oth­er wit­ness (Howard Bren­nan) could give Oswald’s height and weight but couldn’t iden­ti­fy Oswald in a police line­up, nor could he accu­rate­ly describe the win­dow from which Oswald alleged­ly fired; Researcher Bar­ry Ernst under­took an ulti­mate­ly suc­cess­ful years-long search for Adams, a grad­u­ate of Pre­sen­ta­tion High School in San Fran­cis­co; Oswald was sup­pos­ed­ly seen by Dal­las Police offi­cer Mar­i­on Bak­er and Oswald’s super­vi­sor Roy Tru­ly drink­ing a coke in a lunch room in the Texas School Book Depos­i­to­ry; Review of the ARRB’s Dou­glas Horne and his dis­cov­ery that Tru­ly was not being paid by the finan­cial author­i­ties of the Texas School Book Depos­i­to­ry build­ing; Vic­ki Adams start­ed down the stairs with­in 15–30 sec­onds of the shoot­ing and took 60 sec­onds to get down those stairs; War­ren Com­mis­sion says she was mis­tak­en and didn’t start down the stairs until lat­er; TSBD employ­ees Shel­ley and Bil­ly Love­la­dy were stand­ing in first floor entrance, depart­ed for rail­road tracks in back of the grassy knoll and returned; War­ren Com­mis­sion says Adams was at the ground floor only to see them return; War­ren Com­mis­sion coun­sel David Belin’s delib­er­ate dis­tor­tion of Admas’ account: Belin’s refusal to let her par­tic­i­pate in re-enact­ment; Belin wouldn’t inter­view San­dra Styles, who cor­rob­o­rat­ed Adams account (nei­ther Styles nor Adams saw Shel­ley, Love­la­dy on the ground floor); accord­ing to Bar­ry Ernst the War­ren Com­mis­sion destroyed the stenographer’s tape of Adams tes­ti­mo­ny, which sup­port­ed what she told Belin; U.S. Attor­ney Martha Jo Stroud’s let­ter to Com­mis­sion coun­sel J. Lee Rankin but­tress­ing Adams’ account: TSBD employ­ee Elsie Dor­man was film­ing motor­cade and could con­firm Adams’ account; Dorothy Gar­ner sup­port­ed what Adams said about Tru­ly and Bak­er com­ing up stairs and Love­la­dy and Shel­ley not hav­ing returned from tracks (p. 117 of JFK Revis­it­ed); War­ren Commission’s con­ceal­ment Stroud doc­u­ment; Dal­las Police show up on Adams’ doorstep when no one knew where her new apart­ment was (p. 241 of JFK Revis­it­ed); DPD said they had to inter­view her again, because there was a fire that destroyed her pre­vi­ous inter­view; Adams was scared by this; Dal­las PD was no longer involved in inves­ti­ga­tion at that point in time; The doc­u­men­tary record of Adams’ DPD tes­ti­mo­ny dif­fers from her pre­vi­ous testimony—she claims she nev­er saw Shel­ley and Love­la­dy, unlike her testimony—she felt those words had been insert­ed into her tes­ti­mo­ny to dis­prove it; Shelley’s and Lovelady’s tes­ti­mo­ny sup­port Adams’ account, though Lovelady’s is vague; Recap­ping a major point–four women—Adams, Styles, Dor­man, Gar­ner pre­sent­ed a con­sis­tent account (at vari­ance with the War­ren Commission’s the­sis) and Belin only wants Adams and her tes­ti­mo­ny is dis­tort­ed in the offi­cial record.

2.–We men­tion Gen­er­al Roy Byrd and his own­er­ship of Texas School Book Depos­i­to­ry and his found­ing of the Civ­il Air Patrol (which was a point of meet­ing for Oswald and David Fer­rie); Byrd’s pur­chase of Ling Tem­co Vought stock pri­or to assas­si­na­tion, which then appre­ci­at­ed expo­nen­tial­ly because of the Viet­nam war, which JFK was work­ing to pre­vent.
