Revelations (including those debunked) from the 50th anniversary

First, the bad:

1) Author Joan Mellen (as seen on C-SPAN 3 [website and dvd, as well]) stated that she conducted an extensive reexamination of the mystery fingerprint on the box at the TSBD, including the use of a fingerprint expert and high-resolution photographs of the print…THE PRINT IS NOT MAC WALLACE’S;

2) While Robert Groden’s new book “Absolute Proof” is outstanding and a must-have, there is one chapter of the book that has been apparently debunked:

The good:

1) To reiterate: Robert Groden’s new book “Absolute Proof” is outstanding and a must-have, warts and all. Some amazing proof(s) of conspiracy (along with one canard and possibly another. Still, the good far exceeds the bad);
On November 22, 2013, Antonio Veciana confirmed in writing that David Atlee Phillips was the man he knew as Maurice Bishop and who met Oswald in September 1963.

As Dan Hardway rightly noted today – why didn’t Veciana confirm this in 1978 when it could have blown the case wide open?

For the nonmembers who can’t view attachments, the letter says:

November 22, 2013

Dear Marie Fonzi:

You may publish the following statement from me:

“Maurice Bishop, my CIA contact agent was David Atlee Phillips. Phillips or Bishop was the man I saw with Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas on September 1963.”

Best regards,

[Antonio Veciana signature]

Antonio Veciana was interviewed just a few weeks ago, here. It includes a video interview too, but I don’t speak Spanish. Translated, the article says in part, “Antonio Veciana, an anti-Castro activist who said he saw Oswald with his CIA contact in Dallas weeks before the murder, said in an interview that Kennedy was the victim of a plot by senior military and intelligence officials. Veciana said these officials were angered by the failure of the Bay of Pigs, the negotiations with the Soviet Union that ended the missile crisis and the perception that Kennedy sought to improve relations with Cuba.
“The assassination of Kennedy,” Veciana told El Nuevo Herald, “was a coup.”

ANOTHER IMPORTANT UPDATE RE: ANTONIO VECIANA- HE IS ALIVE (!); someone is playing games on the matter of his life status. Per renowned author and researcher Scott Kaiser, who JUST SPOKE TO HIM: “I don’t know where your getting your information from, but Antonio is very much a live I just got off the phone with him 5 minutes ago. In-fact I have a video of him giving me that very statement you posted, he asked that I call him back on Monday because he was in a meeting with some of his vendors, he wants to talk to me, I will be recording our conversation.

Antonio is NOT dead, I repeat, he is NOT dead, I’m not sure where all this information is generated from or who started it all, but Antonio is very much alive.”

3) The Sam Kinney(neighbor) revelations etc.:

4) Oswald leaving the TSBD?/ THE PRAYER MAN:

5-6) Both Secretary of State John Kerry and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. do not believe Oswald acted alone (and RFK Jr was speaking for RFK, as well);

7) Former President (and Warren Commissioner) Gerald Ford: “It wasn’t a lone assassin. It was a plot”:
Valery Giscard D’Estaing, former French President, revealed that back in back in 1976, during an official trip to the USA, he had a conversation about the JFK assassination with then-President Gerald Ford. During this conversation, from a President to another President, Ford admitted that “The Warren Commission didn’t do an great job”. According to Giscard D’Estaing, Ford added : ” IT WASN’T A LONE ASSASSIN. IT WAS A PLOT. WE KNEW FOR SURE THAT IT WAS A PLOT. BUT WE DIDN’T FIND WHO WAS BEHIND IT”

8) Alleged long-suppressed film depicts second gunman?

9) Parkland Nurse Phyllis Hall’s revelations:

10) Parkland Doctor Donald Curtis revelations [Note: Dr McClelland and Dr Jone’s statements, while great, are not new. Technically, this one isn’t, either, as Curtis told me the same thing 15 years ago]:

11) TSBD witness Sandra Styles speaks:

12) The CIA’s George Joannides saga:

13) miscellaneous news items:

14) public opinion polls are still overwhelmingly pro conspiracy; many books have been released, quite a few of which have sold quite well, including a few bona fide best-sellers (Roger Stone, Jesse Ventura, Richard Belzer, etc)


About vincepalamara

Vincent Palamara was born in Pittsburgh and graduated from Duquesne University with a degree in Sociology. Although not even born when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, Vince brings fresh eyes to an old case. In fact, Vince would go on to study the largely overlooked actions - and inactions - of the United States Secret Service in unprecedented detail, as well as achieving a world's record in the process, having interviewed and corresponded with over 80 former agents (the House Select Committee on Assassinations had the old record of 46 with a 6 million dollar budget and subpoena power from Congress), not to mention many surviving family members, White House aides, and even quite a few Parkland and Bethesda medical witnesses for a corresponding project. The result was Survivor's Guilt: The Secret Service & The Failure To Protect President Kennedy. Vince is also the author of the books JFK: From Parkland To Bethesda, The Not-So-Secret Service, Who's Who in the Secret Service, and Honest Answers about the Murder of President John F. Kennedy: A New Look at the JFK Assassination. All told, Vince has been favorably mentioned in over 140 JFK and Secret Service related books to date (including two whole chapters in Murder in Dealey Plaza, The Secret Service: The Hidden History Of An Enigmatic Agency by Philip Melanson, and the Final Report of the Assassination Records Review Board, among many others), often at length, in the bibliographies, and in the Secret Service - and even medical evidence - areas of these works. Vince has appeared on the History Channel's THE MEN WHO KILLED KENNEDY (VHS and DVD), C-SPAN, Newsmax TV, A COUP IN CAMELOT (DVD/BLU RAY), KING KILL '63, THE MAN BEHIND THE SUIT (DVD), National Geographic's JFK: THE FINAL HOURS (including on DVD), PCN, BPTV, local cable access television, YouTube, radio, newspapers, print journals, at national conferences, and all over the internet. Also, Vince's original research materials, or copies of said materials, are stored in the National Archives (by request under Deed Of Gift by the ARRB), the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, Harvard University, the Assassination Archives and Research Center, and the Dallas Public Library. Vince Palamara has become known (as he was dubbed by the History Channel in 2003) "the Secret Service expert." As former JFK Secret Service agent Joe Paolella proclaimed: "You seem to know a lot about the Secret Service, maybe even more than I do!" Agent Dan Emmett calls Vince a Secret Service expert in his new book.

    Vince, how about Ruby’s grip on the gun when he shot Oswald? By now even the main stream press is acknowledging that Ruby stalked Oswald before he finally did the deed. But even more important is the assassin’s grip that Ruby uses to hold the gun. Just check out that Pulitzer winning picture and note how Ruby is using his middle finger on the trigger and his index finger is curled over the gun to prevent it from being knocked out of his hand. Would be interested to hear your thoughts on this piece of the Ruby as hit-man puzzle.

    Came back here again Vince by accident. Any updates on the secret assassination film story? Hope you’re well. Gotta order the NSSS and Who’s Who.
