Landis disavows the SBT, lies that he didn’t drink, and Mike Howard tells tall tales, too
Secret Service agent Paul Landis:
“He sounds almost proud of not having read the Warren Report, and said they got it right about no conspiracy and that Oswald as the lone actor, but blew it with the single-bullet theory. That theory holds that a single shot struck the President and also wounded Governor John Connally. And “I was never interviewed by the Warren Commission and still don’t understand why,” he said Saturday.
Asked about allegations that agents drank heavily the night before in Fort Worth, this witness said he didn’t see it.
“I had a coke,” he said, and there were Blue Laws in place that severely restricted the sale of liquor.
The quarry the night before the assassination was food that was not readily available “and at no time was I impaired.”
FOR THE TRUTH:
Secret Service agent Mike Howard:
“In the hours after the Kennedy assassination, after Lee Harvey Oswald shot and killed Dallas Police Officer J.D. Tippit and was identified as the president’s assassin, a Secret Service officer named Mike Howard was dispatched to Oswald’s apartment. Howard found a little green address book, and on its 17th page under the heading “I WILL KILL” Oswald listed four men: an FBI agent named James Hosty; a right-wing general, Edwin Walker; and Vice President Richard Nixon. At the top of the list was the governor of Texas, John Connally. Through Connally’s name, Oswald had drawn a dagger, with blood drops dripping downward.
Special Agent Howard turned the address book over to the FBI and, ultimately, to the Warren Commission. Only some time later did he learn that the list with its hugely important insight into the killer’s motive had been torn out of the book.”
