FTR#‘s 1325 and 1326 “Chokeholds” and the Oswald Impersonators, Parts 1 and 2

Intro­duc­tion: These pro­grams con­tin­ue pre­sen­ta­tion the legal con­cept of “Choke­holds” on the JFK assassination–dynamics that prove, legal­ly, that there was a con­spir­a­cy.

These do not nec­es­sar­i­ly res­onate pre­cise­ly with aspects of the his­tor­i­cal record, which embraces, but does not delin­eate, prin­ci­ples of law.

In these broad­casts, Jim DiEu­ge­nio, Paul Bleau and Mr. Emory are joined by Matt Crump­ton, one of the con­trib­u­tors to the book, a lawyer and author of a bril­liant chap­ter of the vol­ume deal­ing with the Oswald imper­son­ators.

We con­clude the first broad­cast with a trib­ute to the recent­ly-deceased Cyril Wecht and Dr. William F. Pep­per.

FTR#1271 Interview #10 with Jim DiEugenio about “JFK Revisited”

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.

Jim begins by relat­ing Oliv­er Stone’s address to the Cannes Film Fes­ti­val, fol­low­ing the screen­ing of JFK Revis­it­ed.

Not­ing the evi­den­tiary archives assem­bled and cre­den­tialed by the ARRB, he not­ed that “con­spir­a­cy the­o­ry” has become “con­spir­a­cy fact.”

Record­ed on Vet­er­ans’ Day of 2022, we not­ed Oliv­er Stone’s own ser­vice as a dec­o­rat­ed com­bat infantry­man in Viet­nam, and recapped how JFK was with­draw­ing the U.S. from Viet­nam when he was killed.

As we tran­si­tion into analy­sis of the bal­lis­tic and medical/forensic evi­dence, a telling quote frames the dis­cus­sion of CE399 (the “Mag­ic Bul­let”) and the sit­u­a­tion in Park­land Hos­pi­tal on 11/22/1963:

JFK Revis­it­ed: Through the Look­ing Glass by Jim DiEu­ge­nio; Sky­horse Pub­lish­ing [HC]; Copy­right 2022 by Jim DiEu­ge­nio; Intro­duc­tion Copy­right 2022 by Oliv­er Stone; ISBN 978–1‑5107–7287‑8; p. 225.;

. . . . [Josi­ah] Thomp­son gave an impor­tant speech at the 2003 Duquesne Uni­ver­si­ty JFK Assas­si­na­tion Con­fer­ence. He revealed that, in a 1993 inter­view, O.P. Wright’s widow—who also worked at Park­land Hospital—said that more than one nurse had approached her I the twen­ty-four hours after the assas­si­na­tion because they had found bul­lets on gur­neys. . . .

FTR#1270 Interview #9 with Jim DiEugenio about JFK Revisited

Noth­ing is more impor­tant in the JFK inves­ti­ga­tion than the role of the media, the ele­ment we rely upon for our infor­ma­tion. That dis­til­late pro­vides us with our basis for mak­ing intel­li­gent, mea­sured deci­sions.

In our long series of inter­views with Mr. DiEu­ge­nio about his book Des­tiny Betrayed, we not­ed that the media have func­tioned close­ly with the intel­li­gence ser­vices and oth­er fed­er­al agen­cies to active­ly cov­er-up the truth.

The pro­gram begins with Jim’s review of the medi­a’s role in the Gar­ri­son case.

Next, we syn­op­size the role of media vis a vis the War­ren Report, includ­ing: Major net­works and MSM print voic­es (NYT, WaPo) endorse report, despite the fact that the 26 vol­umes of tes­ti­mo­ny and exhibits had yet to be released; War­ren Com­mis­sion­er John J. McCloy’s CBS inter­view where he doesn’t answer Wal­ter Cronkite’s query, nor does he men­tion that his daugh­ter Ellen heav­i­ly liaised with net­work man­age­ment on the pro­gram; Alec Baldwin’s expe­ri­ence with NBC, who wouldn’t let him book guests crit­i­cal of the War­ren Report and is told that NBC’s stance is to sup­port the offi­cial ver­sion of the assas­si­na­tion (Tom Brokaw—“No Gar­ri­son”); Back­ground on the Sarnoff fam­i­ly’s intel­li­gence con­nec­tions.

We then syn­op­size Life Mag­a­zine’s role in the cov­er-up, includ­ing: Though not dis­cussed in JFK Revis­it­ed, it was Life that pur­chased Zaprud­er film and then re-arranged the still frames in its issue sup­port­ing War­ren Report; Hen­ry Luce’s role as enabler of the Pow­ers That Be (his idol, BTW, was Mus­soli­ni); C.D. Jackson’s role with Life—though not dis­cussed in film, he was a life­long intel/national secu­ri­ty play­er; Life’s pub­li­ca­tion of the cov­er pho­to of “Oswald” hold­ing the rifle and pis­tol he sup­pos­ed­ly used in the killings; Oswald’s wed­ding ring on dif­fer­ent fin­gers of  “Oswald’s” hand. 

Next, we high­light key aspects of the rifle alleged­ly used by Oswald, includ­ing: The salient fact that in Texas (at that point in time) any­one could pur­chase a rifle over the counter with­out doc­u­men­ta­tion; Why would any­one plan­ning a polit­i­cal assas­si­na­tion pur­chase a mail-order rifle?; Dif­fer­ent bar­rel lengths of  “Oswald’s” rifle in var­i­ous pre­sen­ta­tions; dif­fer­ent mount­ings of sling on “Oswald’s” rifle in var­i­ous pre­sen­ta­tions; The fact that mail order box wasn’t in Oswald’s name, so he couldn’t have received the weapon; the dis­parate time frames involved in send­ing the weapon through the mail. 

We con­clude with dis­cus­sion of the rifle and foren­sics vis a vis its present on 6th floor “sniper’s perch,” includ­ing: The remark­ably neat place­ment of the spent car­tridges in the “sniper’s nest;” Reporter Tom Alyea’s dis­cus­sion of how the “sniper’s perch” looked pri­or to appar­ent inter­fer­ence.
