COMMENT: An inter­est­ing doc­u­ment came to light in the recent release of files relat­ing to the assas­si­na­tion of JFK. Jack Ruby told an FBI infor­mant to “watch the fire­works” in Dealey Plaza that day. This might be eval­u­at­ed against the back­ground of FTR #963 [5], relating–among oth­er things–a read­ing of Jack Ruby’s War­ren Com­mis­sion tes­ti­mo­ny.

” Jack Ruby Told FBI Infor­mant to ‘Watch the Fire­works’ Day JFK Died: Doc­u­ments” by Kathryn Wat­son; CBS News; 11/17/2017. [6]

Jack Ruby, the man who even­tu­al­ly shot Lee Har­vey Oswald, told an FBI infor­mant to “watch the fire­works” on the day Pres­i­dent John F. Kennedy was killed, accord­ing to new records the Nation­al Archives released Fri­day.

New records [7] – first high­light­ed by Uni­ver­si­ty of Vir­ginia polit­i­cal ana­lyst Lar­ry Saba­to — describe what an FBI infor­mant lat­er told offi­cials about Ruby. Oswald shot and killed JFK on Nov. 22, 1963, in Dal­las. The inter­ac­tion on the morn­ing of the JFK assas­si­na­tion was­n’t offi­cial­ly relayed to the FBI until March 1977, and the infor­mant was even­tu­al­ly revealed to be Bob Van­der­slice of Dal­las.

“The infor­mant stat­ed that on the morn­ing of the assas­si­na­tion, Ruby con­tact­ed him and asked if he would ‘like to watch the fire­works,’ ” an FBI record dat­ed April 6, 1977, says. “He was with Jack Ruby and stand­ing at the cor­ner of the Postal Annex Build­ing fac­ing the Texas School Book Depos­i­to­ry Build­ing at the time of the shoot­ing. . . .
