the latest update i have for those who regard the JFK assassination as unsolved, i.e., a mystery: a source told me that according to released CIA documents, Castro's agents infiltrated the surviving soldiers of the failed Cuban invasion, "the bay of pigs," and proceeded to orchestrate and carry out the killing of our president, on November 22, 1963. In other words, it was a retaliation-killing. I have no comment, as this is new to me. In fairness, i record what the source told to me, yesterday. What some said at the time backs this up: JFK 'took one for the team.' If this IS the truth, it is no less sad, to me.// as is the way of me, i am less enthusiastic to purvey this, the above, solution to the riddle of the Kennedy assassinations. For awhile last year, people would ask me if i expected to learn anything from the much ballyhooed release of government files on the jfk assassination: i replied then, ' no. they're not going to incriminate themselves, or their older comrades, siblings, parents or anyone else who was involved.' when dallas cops encountered individuals on the knoll, at the top, and asked for i.d., secret service i.d. was proferred. u.s. secret service denied having any agents in that area. concentration should have been applied to this discrepancy, then. again, who ordered the reduction in security for the presidential vehicle? who called ft. sam houston and had the garrison stand down? why are the people whose job it is to investigate state crimes not doing it, have never done it? i don't grok, i never have grokked this, ever since i began taking a look at it, many moons ago.
