Can someone please explain, given the overwhelming body of evidence that shows how preposterous the official word is, how anybody could even sit on
the fence (as an above post shows) and suggest that whilst its not all good, and there may be some things that don’t quite add up, most of it seems
OK (so to speak) ..... and on the whole go along with The Word?
I have also, as the OP has, wondered about the modus operandi some of the 9/11 characters operate under.... ? is it maybe possible that it’s a
technique being used to confuse... it confuses me!!
I equate the Nine Eleven Commission with the earlier Warren Commission. I offer this generalized reply why I accept the Warren Commission Report and
by extension, the Nine Eleven Commission Report. The Warren Report can be summarized thus: There was a single shooter and one bullet hit both Kennedy
and Governor John Connally. The so-called magic bullet theory.
Similarity the Nine Eleven Commission Report can be summarized thus: 19 young men of Arab descent hi-jacked 4 commercial passenger planes and rammed
two of them into the Twin Towers of the WTC, the 3rd was crashed into the Pentagon and the 4th went down over rural western Pennsylvania apparently
crashed while the passengers attempted to re-take the plane. The surprise (and genesis of conspiracy theories) was the collapse of the twin towers and
later, of a 3rd tower which had been allowed to burn itself out, and also collapsed. Call it serendipity for Osama bin Laden, and a PARAMOUNT tragedy
Argument. Earl Warren, the chairman of the Commission was the Chief Justice of the United States. Before being nominated by Eisenhower, Warren had
already served 3 terms as governor of California and in his last election, ran unopposed. (That was the only time in the 20th century that the
governor of a large state did that). Which showed the TRUST and CONFIDENCE the people of California put in him. He was instrumental in the unanimous
judicial decision in the landmark case Brown v. Topeka Board of Education (1954) that found segregation based on race was unconstitutional in the US.
Six other Commission members. Richard Russell, long-time senator from Georgia who was known as the Dean of the Senate. A Democrat. John Sherman
Cooper, senator from Kentucky, my home state. A Republican. (I have voted for him!) Hale Boggs, a long time Congressman from Louisiana, a Democrat.
See Note 1.
Gerald Ford, a Congressman from Michigan with a splendid reputation, and who later became president, a Republican. Allen W. Dulles,
who was head of the CIA under Eisenhower, a Republican. John J. McCloy, a corporate executive and US High Commissioner to Germany just after WW2, a
The staff of the Warren Commission numbered 18 people. All were young - 20s and 30s - and high achievers. About half were Phi Beta Kappa. Another
third were Order of the Coif - the legal profession’s equal to the Phi Beta Kappa - and a few were both. Arlen Specter was one of those staffers.
There were 20 investigators and most had experience in both public and private investigative agencies.
The Warren Commission was
composed of 45 of America’s BEST
. That cannot be gainsaid! As was also the Nine Eleven Commission. I have read
the 9/11 Commission Report. I have also read the Warren Commission Repot through at least 3 times and I have referred to it 100s of times over the
years. I visited Dealy Plaza in the mid-1970s. I have never doubted the conclusions contained in the Report. History Channel has done two docu-dramas
that show the Commission was RIGHT ON!
Yet, millions of people as smart as or smarter than I, doubt that the Report is correct in its major fundamental conclusion. One shooter, three shots.
I cannot explain that. I offer one reason is that Americans tend to be very skeptical, including of those in authority whose motives are not always
It is my opinion that only 3 entities stood to gain or had what we accept as sufficient motive, to want to murder JFK. 4 if you count LHO. The USSR.
Kruschev had been bested by JFK in the 1962 Cuba Missile Crisis. Cuba. The Bay of Pigs attempt to overthrow Castro’s government was a fiasco.
Subsequently, the CIA had tried to poison Castro. But Fidel was not dumb, The First Marine Division of the USMC could have wiped up the Castro
Communist Revolution in a few days! And Fidel knew that. Get caught killing Kennedy and your gig is over!
Finally, the MAFIA. JFK had put his energetic brother Robert, in as Attorney General and he, Robert, had declared WAR on the Mafia. My shortest
argument against that is the MAFIA would not have hired a marginal at best man to HIT Kennedy. More likely than not he would have failed the job and
if captured, would have “ratted” out his employers. Crime bosses do not hire mentally unstable UNKNOWNS to do important jobs. End of my arguments.
The events surrounding Boggs' death have been the subject of much speculation, suspicion, and numerous conspiracy theories. These
theories often center on his membership on the Warren Commission. Boggs dissented from the Warren Commission's majority who supported the single
bullet theory. Regarding the single bullet theory, Boggs commented, "I had strong doubts about it."
