All of his life, White had sought perfection in himself, his career, his marriage, and his family. When his wife became pregnant with their second child in 2007, the couple was informed their unborn daughter would have Downs Syndrome. White claims that he was terrified to have a child that was less than perfect because of how it would reflect on him. White compelled his wife to have an abortion, but she refused.
It was not until after their daughter Paisley was born that several months later something changed in White's heart. He realized that the flaws were not in this beautiful and loving child, but rather they were flaws of his own. Fear. Anxiety. Lack of control. Pride. Imperfection. But after hearing his baby daughter laugh one day while tickling her, all of the negativity melted away and all he could see was her beaming face. He decided to go for a run to clear his head. And he took her with him.
Now, that is still all he sees – Paisley's laugh and smile and hopeful eyes. Heath White's accomplishments in his career pale in comparison to what he spends his free time doing these days. He and Paisley participate in road races all over the country. He pushes her in a stroller emblazoned with Downs Syndrome on the side. White runs with a tattoo of "Downs Syndrome" across his chest. They do it together to send the message that "different" does not mean "imperfect," and that no amount of imperfection could ever change the enormity of love and pride he has for his daughter.
"She's (Paisley) opened my eyes to a completely different thought process on human worth and value," White said.
"Everybody has lessons to teach you and you have to be open to them, without coming in with any preconceived judgments. I have also learned in my running that victory does not come from the defeat of others, but from doing what you thought was impossible."
Today, White works as an FBI agent and travels to races pushing his daughter or other participants that

FBI Fears Loss of Surveillance Tools in Patriot Act
Expiring Section of Law, Targeted by Critics of NSA Phone Program, Underpins Requests for Hotel, Credit-Card Bills
Updated Feb. 4, 2015 7:18 p.m. ET

WASHINGTON—U.S. officials and some lawmakers are worried that key tools used to hunt down terrorists and spies could fall victim to the fight over the government’s controversial phone-surveillance program.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, using authority conveyed by a soon-to-expire section of the 2001 Patriot Act, is currently allowed to seek “tangible things’’ to aid in terrorism or intelligence probes, such as hotel bills, credit-card slips and other documents. Section 215 of the Patriot Act allows the FBI, with a court order, to take “books, records, papers, documents, and other items.’’

The authority is often used as a way to secretly collect evidence on suspected foreign spies operating in the U.S., according to current and former officials. Unlike a grand-jury subpoena, a person or company receiving a Section 215 order to provide documents is barred from revealing to anyone that they received such a request, these people said.



But Section 215, which is set to expire in June, also provides the legal basis for the National Security Agency’s controversial collection of phone records. That program has come under intense scrutiny from lawmakers, civil-liberties groups and

Privacy Died Long Ago
In 06/03/2013


The great forgotten Cincinnati wiretap scandal

By Gregory Flannery
Americans no longer assume their communications are free from government spying. Many believe widespread monitoring is a recent change, a response to terrorism. They are wrong. Fair warning came in 1988 in Cincinnati, Ohio, when evidence showed that wiretapping was already both common and easy.
Twenty-five years ago state and federal courtrooms in Cincinnati were abuzz with allegations of illegal wiretaps on federal judges, members of Cincinnati City Council, local congressional representatives, political dissidents and business leaders.
Two federal judges in Cincinnati told 60 Minutes they believed there was strong evidence that they had been wiretapped. Retired Cincinnati Police officers, including a former chief, admitted to illegal wiretapping.
Even some of the most outrageous claims – for example, that the president of the United States was wiretapped while staying in a Cincinnati hotel – were supported by independent witnesses.
National media coverage of the lawsuits, grand jury hearings and investigations by city council and the FBI attracted the attention of U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont) and the late U.S. Sen. Paul Simon (D-Ill.).
As Americans wonder about the extent to which their e-mails, cell-phones and text messages are being monitored, they would do well to look back at a time before any of those existed. Judging by what was revealed in Cincinnati, privacy died long before anyone had ever heard of Osama bin Laden or al Q’aeda.
Turbulence

In 1988 Leonard Gates, a former installer for Cincinnati Bell, told the Mount Washington Press, a small independent weekly, that he had performed illegal wiretaps for the Cincinnati Police Department, the FBI and the phone company itself.
A week after the paper published his allegations, a federal grand jury began hearing testimony.
Gates claimed to have performed an estimated 1,200 wiretaps, which he believed illegal. His list of targets included former Mayor Jerry Springer, the late tycoon Carl Lindner Jr., U.S. District Judge Carl Rubin, U.S. Magistrate J. Vincent Aug, the late U.S. Sen. Howard Metzenbaum (D-Ohio), the Students for a Democratic Society (an anti-war group during the Vietnam War), then-U.S. Rep. Tom Luken (D-Cincinnati) and then-President Gerald Ford.
A second former Cincinnati Bell installer, Robert Draise, joined Gates, saying he, too had performed illegal wiretaps for the police. His alleged targets included the Black Muslim mosque in Finneytown and the General Electric plant in Evendale. Draise’s portfolio was much smaller than Gates’s, an estimated 100 taps, because he was caught freelancing – performing an illegal wiretap for a friend.
Charged by the FBI, Draise claimed he had gone to his “controller” at Cincinnati Bell, the person who directed his wiretaps, and asked for help. If he didn’t get it, he said, he’d tell all. When the case went to federal court, Draise didn’t bother to hire an attorney. He didn’t need one. In a plea deal, federal prosecutors dropped the charge to a misdemeanor. Found guilty of illegal wiretapping, his sentence was a $200 fine. The judge? Magistrate J. Vincent Aug.
If Gates and Draise had been the only people to come forward, they could easily be dismissed as cranks – disgruntled former employees, as Cincinnati Bell claimed. But some police office officers named by Gates and Draise confirmed parts of their allegations, insisting, however, that there were only 12 illegal wiretaps. Other officers not known to Gates and Draise also admitted to illegal wiretaps. Some of the officers received immunity from prosecution in exchange for their testimony. Others invoked their Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate themselves.
“Due to the turbulent nature of the late ’60s and early ’70s, wiretaps were conducted to gather information,” said a press release signed by six retired officers. “This use began in approximately 1968 and ended completely during the Watergate investigation.”
The press release, whose signers included former Police Chief Myron Leistler, listed 12 wiretaps, among them “a black militant in the Bond Hill area” and a house on either Ravine or Strait streets rented by “the SDS or some other radical group.”
The retired cops’ lawyer said there were actually three Cincinnati Bell installers doing illegal wiretaps, but declined to identify the third.
The retired officers denied knowledge of “any wiretaps involving judges, local politicians, prominent citizens and fellow law enforcement officers or city employees.”
Getting rid of Aug

Others had that knowledge, however.
Howard Lucas, former security chief at the Stouffer Hotel downtown, said he caught Gates and three cops trying to break into a telephone switching room shortly before President Gerald Ford stayed at the hotel.
“I said, ‘Do you have a court order?’ and they all laughed,” Lucas told the Mount Washington Press.
The four men left. But they returned.
“A couple days later, in the back of the room, I found a setup, a reel-to-reel recorder concealed under some boxes,” Lucas said.
Ford stayed at the Stouffer Hotel in July 1975 and June 1976 – two years after the Watergate scandal, when Cincinnati Police officers claimed the bugging ended.
Then there was the matter of a former guard at the U.S. Courthouse downtown. He said he had found wiretap equipment there in 1986 and 1987, just a year before the wiretap scandal broke.
“I heard conversations you wouldn’t believe,” he said. “I heard a conversation one time. they were talking about getting rid of U.S. Magistrate Aug.”
The wiretapping started with drug dealers and expanded to political and business figures, according to Gates. In 1979, he testified, he was ordered to wiretap the Hamilton County Regional Computer Center, which handled vote tabulations. His handler at the phone company allegedly told Gates the wiretap was intended to manipulate election results.
“They had the ability to actually alter what was being done with the votes. … He was very upset through some of the elections with a gentleman named Blackwell,” Gates testified.
J. Kenneth Blackwell is a former member of Cincinnati Council, and 1979 was an election year for council.
Something went wrong on Election Night, Gates testified. His handler at the phone company called him.
“He was panicking,” Gates testified. “He said we had done something to screw up the voting processor down there, or the voting computer.”
News reports at the time noted an unexpected delay in counting votes for city council because of a computer malfunction.
Cincinnati Bell denied any involvement in illegal wiretapping by police or its own personnel. Yet police officers, like Gates, testified the police received equipment – even a truck – and information necessary to effectuate the wiretaps. The owners of a greenhouse in Westwood even came forward, saying the police stored the Cincinnati Bell truck on their property.
‘Say it louder’

Gates claimed that his handler at Cincinnati Bell repeatedly told him the wiretaps were at the behest of the FBI. He named an FBI agent who, he said, let him into the federal courthouse to wiretap federal judges.
Investigations followed – a federal grand jury, which indicted no one; a special investigator hired by city council, the former head of the Cincinnati FBI office; the U.S. Justice Department, sort of.
U.S. Sen. Paul Simon asked then-Attorney General Richard Thornburgh to look into the Cincinnati wiretap scandal. Federal judges, members of Congress and even the president of the United States had allegedly been wiretapped. Simon’s effort went nowhere. His press secretary told the Mount Washington Press that it took three months for the Attorney General to respond.
“The senator’s not pleased with the response,” Simon’s press secretary said. “It didn’t have the attorney general’s personal attention, and it said Justice (Department) was aware of the situation, but isn’t going to do anything.”
The city of Cincinnati settled a class-action lawsuit accusing it of illegal wiretapping, paying $85,000 to 17 defendants. It paid $12,000 to settle a second lawsuit by former staffers of The Independent Eye, an underground newspaper allegedly wiretapped and torched by Cincinnati Police officers in 1970.
Cincinnati Bell sued Leonard Gates and Robert Draise, accusing them of defamation. The two men had no attorneys and represented themselves at trial. Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Fred Cartolano refused to let the jury hear testimony by former police officers who had admitted using Gates and Draise and Cincinnati Bell equipment. In a 4-2 vote, the jury ruled in the phone company’s favor, officially adjudging the two whistleblowers liars.
During one of the many hearings associated with the wiretap scandal, an FBI agent was asked what the agency would do if someone accused the phone company of placing illegal wiretaps. He testified the FBI would be powerless; it needed the phone company to check for a wiretap.
“It would go back to Bell,” the agent testified. “We would have no way of determining if there was any illegal wiretapping going on.”
The FBI agent was the person Gates had accused of opening the federal courthouse at night so he could wiretap federal judges.
One police sergeant offered no excuses for the illegal wiretapping. Asked why he didn’t bother with the legal niceties, such as getting a warrant, as required then by federal law, he said, “I didn’t deem it was necessary. We wanted the information, and went out and got it.”
At one point, covering the scandal for the Mount Washington Press, I received a phone call from a sergeant in the Cincinnati Police Department. He invited me to the station at Mount Airy Forest, where he proceeded to wiretap a fellow police officer’s phone call. I listened as the other officer talked to his wife.
“Say hello,” the sergeant told me.
I did. There was no response.
“Say it louder,” the sergeant said.
I did. No response.
“You can hear them, but they can’t hear you,” the sergeant said. “Any idiot can do a wiretap. You know that’s true because you just saw a policeman do it.”
Privacy is dead. Its corpse has long been moldering in the grave.

Hoover’s FBI and the Fourth Estate

The Campaign to Control the Press and the Bureau’s Image
Matthew Cecil

February 2014
368 pages, 27 photographs, 6 x 9
Cloth ISBN 978-0-7006-1946-7, $34.95
Ebook ISBN 978-0-7006-1983-2, $34.95

book cover imageThe Federal Bureau of Investigation was an agency devoted to American ideals, professionalism, and scientific methods, directed by a sage and selfless leader—and anyone who said otherwise was a no-good subversive, bent on discrediting the American way of life. That was the official story, and how J. Edgar Hoover made it stick—running roughshod over those same American ideals—is the story this book tells in full for the first time.

From Hoover’s first tentative media contacts in the 1930s to the Bureau’s eponymous television series in the 1960s and 1970s, FBI officials labored mightily to control the Bureau’s image—efforts that put them not-so-squarely at the forefront of the emerging field of public relations. In the face of any journalistic challenges to the FBI’s legitimacy and operations, Hoover was able to create a benign, even heroic counter narrative, thanks in part to his friends in newsrooms. Matthew Cecil’s own prodigious investigation through hundreds of thousands of pages from FBI files reveals the lengths to which Hoover and his lackeys went to use the press to hoodwink the American people. Even more sobering is how much help he got from so many in the press.

Conservative journalists like broadcaster Fulton Lewis, Jr. and columnist George Sokolsky positioned themselves as “objective” defenders of Hoover’s FBI and were rewarded with access, friendship, and other favors. Some of Hoover’s friends even became adjunct-FBI agents, designated as Special Service Contacts who discreetly gathered information for the Bureau. “Enemies,” on the other hand, were closely monitored and subjected to operations that disrupted their work or even undermined and ended their careers. Noted journalists like I. F. Stone, George Seldes, James A. Wechsler, and many others found themselves the subjects of FBI investigations and, occasionally, named on the Bureau’s “custodial detention index,” targeted for arrest in the case of a national emergency.

With experience as a political reporter, a press secretary, and a scholar and professor of journalism and public relations, Matthew Cecil is uniquely qualified to conduct us through the maze of political intrigue and influence peddling that mark—and often mask—the history of the FBI. His work serves as a cautionary tale about how manipulative government agents and compliant journalists can undermine the very institutions and ideals they are tasked with protecting.

“A rare book—enormously entertaining and scrupulous scholarship. A major contribution to our understanding of J. Edgar Hoover, America's modern-day Machiavelli. Cecil has the facts behind the FBI legend, and they are fascinating.”
—Tim Weiner, author of Enemies: A History of the FBI

“Matthew Cecil's thoughtful and well researched monograph convincingly documents the covert and sophisticated efforts of Hoover's FBI both to promote a positive image and to immunize the FBI from legitimate criticisms of its abusive practices. His study is a primer for our time—highlighting the dangers to civil liberties and democratic values posed by secretive and effectively unaccountable intelligence agencies.”
—Athan Theoharis, author of The FBI and American Democracy: A Brief Critical History

“Matthew Cecil has dug up important and original new evidence about the malignant propaganda apparatus wielded by J. Edgar Hoover, who for decades flattered, cajoled and intimidated America’s media establishment into shamelessly exaggerating FBI exploits and hiding its criminal abuses. The author’s painstaking review of tens of thousands of FBI documents demonstrates that while the nation’s top editors and reporters cravenly competed to become Hoover’s hagiographic handmaidens, the handful of journalists brave enough to challenge the FBI were viciously targeted for retribution by America’s most powerful law enforcement agency. J. Edgar Hoover and the American Press is detached and fair-minded scholarship but doesn’t shrink from the inevitable conclusion that it was Hoover who was the true threat to U.S. democracy. At a time when our government is once again asking us to trust it with unparalleled spying powers, this book provides an urgent and timely warning of the perils of unchecked police power—and the need for vigorous watchdog journalism to expose it. Anyone who cares about civil liberties should read this disturbing reminder of what can go wrong.”
—Mark Feldstein, author of Poisoning the Press: Richard Nixon, Jack Anderson, and the Rise of Washington’s Scandal Culture

“A very strong and well written study on a topic that has never been explored at any great length and is thus a significant contribution to our understanding of the history of Hoover’s FBI.”—Douglas M. Charles, author of FBI’s Obscene File: J. Edgar Hoover and the Bureau’s Crusade against Smut

“Cecil takes a long overdue look at one of the pillars in the FBI temple J. Edgar Hoover built . . . the director’s shrewd use of and manipulation of the press. Should be on the shelf of anyone interested in the Bureau’s history.”—Max Holland, author of Leak: Why Mark Felt Became Deep Throat

MATTHEW CECIL is associate professor and director of the Elliott School of Communication, Wichita State University. He has worked as a newspaper editor, a political and legislative reporter, and a press secretary for a gubernatorial campaign.

Forensic science director named after lab scandal

Jessica Masulli Reyes, The News Journal
Michael J. Wolf will lead the state’s Division of Forensic Science, which was created during the legislative reorganization of the Office of Chief Medical Examiner following last year’s scandal.
Delaware officials have hired a new director of forensic science who has experience turning around troubled drug labs in other states.

Michael J. Wolf will head the state's Division of Forensic Science, which was created during the legislative reorganization of the Office of Chief Medical Examiner in response to last year's scandal, according to an announcement by the Department of Safety and Homeland Security.
Wolf will be overseeing a lab that was once rife with evidence tampering and theft and major lapses in security.
The News Journal detailed in several articles the downfall of the lab after investigators discovered more than 50 pieces of drug evidence had been tampered with at the OCME between 2010 and 2014. Last month, a retest of two kilograms of cocaine led to a man's 20-year prison sentence being overturned and his release.
Delaware's Chief Medical Examiner, Dr. Richard Callery, was suspended and then fired in July. Two former OCME employees – forensic investigator James Woodson and chemist Farnam Daneshgar – have been arrested and charged in connection with the tampering.


Richard Callery an issue in Paladin, other murder cases
Wolf, a retired FBI agent, has investigated similar situations in other states. He spent the last two years conducting a special inquiry for the Massachusetts' Inspector General's Office into the prac

chet lunner
He tells NEWS CENTER that Maine can't be considered an isolated place.
The fact that some of the 9/11 terrorists began their journey in Portland 13 years ago is proof of that.
Lunner says our coastline and Canadian border, as well as our defense industries and oil pipelines could make Maine an attractive spot for ISIS terrorists looking to hit the United States.
He urges Mainers not to be alarmed, but to use "situational awareness," to stay aware of their surroundings and report suspicious activity to local police or the FBI.

F.B.I. Director to Give Speech Addressing Relations Between Police and Blacks

James Comey, the F.B.I. leader for about 18 months, has shown a willingness to weigh in aggressively about issues of race

http://mobile.nytimes.com/2015/02/12/us/fbi-director-to-give-speech-addressing-relations-between-police-and-blacks.html?_r=0&referrer=


FEBRUARY 11, 2015
WASHINGTON — The F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, on Thursday will wade into the national debate about the relationship between police officers and African-Americans that was highlighted by the fatal shooting of an unarmed black man in Ferguson, Mo., in August. It will be the first time one of the bureau’s directors has publicly addressed the issue of race at length.

In a speech at Georgetown University, Mr. Comey is expected to say that much research shows that people in a society with a majority of whites unconsciously react differently to blacks. The text of Mr. Comey’s speech has not been released by the F.B.I., but several bureau officials described parts of it.

He also plans to say that in areas where nonwhites commit a majority of the crimes, law enforcement officers can become cynical and develop mental shortcuts that lead them to more closely scrutinize members of minority groups.

Mr. Comey is expected to say that most police officers are not racists, and that they chose their profession because they wanted to help protect others, regardless of whether those people are white, black or another ethnicity.

Chuck Wexler, the executive director of the Police Executive Research Forum, said that by addressing race, Mr. Comey was beginning “to show how he’s a much different F.B.I. director than the previous ones.”

Previous directors have llll

James Comey: Two Thumbs-Up on Waterboarding?
06/19/2013

James Comey: A Closer Look
By Chris Anders, Senior Legislative Counsel, ACLU Washington Legislative Office at 2:00pm
Waterboarding and other torture tactics may once again take center stage in yet another nomination fight. But this time, the stakes involve a ten-year appointment to head the FBI.
Before President Obama nominates—and certainly before the Senate Judiciary Committee confirms—James Comey to be FBI director, the president and the senators should read three torture memos that are central to understanding who Comey is. There is a mountain of other torture documents from the Bush era, but we only need to read three of them.
During the Bush administration, the Senate Judiciary Committee turned away several nominees for top government jobs because of their roles in approving waterboarding and other torture. And on his second full day in office, President Obama invalidated the torture memos and banned the use of waterboarding and other torture tactics. But the president is reportedly poised to sign off on the nomination of the former number two official in the Bush Justice Department, who twice signed off on torture memos okaying waterboarding, wall slams, and other forms of torture.
The first key torture memo for the president and senators to read is the document now known as Bybee II (it was the second torture memo signed by Assistant Attorney General Jay Bybee). There were two memos issued on August 1, 2002, that kicked off the torture program. The first memo—Bybee I—laid out the Bush administration's legal theory for how to effectively ignore the Anti-Torture Act, while the second memo—Bybee II—described waterboarding and other torture tactics in horrific detail and approved their use on a suspect.
Comey had no role in writing Bybee II (he didn't start as deputy attorney general until more than a year later), but he made sure it was still "good" law. After the news of widespread torture at Abu Ghraib broke, Comey, to his credit, supported the withdrawal of the Bybee I legal memo. But Bybee II stayed in place.
That brings us to the second key torture memo. Because Bybee II had relied on withdrawn Bybee I, waterboarding and other torture tactics were on even shakier legal ground. Comey reportedly ordered a replacement opinion for Bybee I, so that Bybee II would have a revised legal foundation.
The new opinion—addressed to "Deputy Attorney General James Comey"—was signed on December 30, 2004. The key sentence in the opinion is tucked away in footnote 8. It concludes that the new Comey memo does not change the authorizations of interrogation tactics in any earlier memos. In short, the Comey memo gave a thumbs-up on waterboarding. Read the footnote for yourself:
While we have identified various disagreements with the August 2002 Memorandum, we have reviewed this Office's prior opinions addressing issues involving treatment of detainees and do not believe that any of their conclusions would be different under the standards set forth in this memorandum.
Even with this new memo, the Bush White House and CIA were still worried about whether they could get away with torture. They ordered up additional legal memos in the spring of 2005. The first memo essentially is a rewrite of Bybee II, with basically a how-to guide on how to simulate drowning, induce hypothermia, slam a person into a wall, and otherwise commit torture and abuse and get away with it. The second memo approved the use of these tactics in combination.
Comey gave a second thumbs-up to waterboarding in signing off on the May 2005 rewrite of Bybee II. He reportedly wrote an email to a colleague at the time, in which he said he "concurred" with the new torture memo. At the same time, he strenuously opposed the approval of the second memo combining torture tactics. Waterboarding was okay, as long as it was done the "right" way.
The FBI director serves for ten years and heads the nation's top federal law enforcement agency. No one in law enforcement should be more committed to lawful interrogation tactics—and more opposed to waterboarding and other forms of torture and abuse—than the director of the FBI. Before the president decides whether to nominate Comey and before senators decide to confirm him to a ten-year term, they should all spend an hour or two reading these three torture memos that show Comey's two thumbs-up on waterboarding.
For more on the unsettling record of President Obama’s prospective pick to lead the FBI, see "James Comey: A Closer Look".

US taxpayers are literally paying taxes to be lied to. Legislation passed that Naomi Wolf talks about allows the CIA, FBI, police, or their operatives to stage events, give false stories to mainstream media, and fund movies that tell complete lies such is alleged with Zero Dark Thirty and The American Sniper.

Why should police and officials know, and record, events like while and when you shower, sit on the toilet, when and how you have sex and with who, what you spend money on, your views, and inventory all that you own. Almost every conversation you have is part of a permanent record.

If you are self-employed, Amish, farm, own livestock, have a concealed carry permit holder, hike in the wilderness, are outspoken and calling the occupiers of the US Government, courts, policing, and military out on their BS you can be put on their list. If you are on their list they want to take your professional licenses, driver's license, break up your romantic relationships, terrorize you out of your home, permanently estrange you from your children if you have them, destroy your reputation, make you broke and unemployable, cause you to have tax debts you can never possibly repay, have police informants set you up for prison, beat, and/or murder you.

When they come raid your house, they know when you will be in the shower.

If police officers make up they worked overtime for the DHS that they did not work, do not have to pay back money stolen from taxpayers, aren't punished would they also not be

Delhi Police official tasked with studying facilities in FBI labs
16 Feb, 2015, 2154 hrs IST, PTI
Bassi said that Prem Nath is "one of our most competent" officers. He was instrumental in the arrangements in the Commonwealth Games.
NEW DELHI: A senior Delhi Police official, who has carried the viscera samples of Sunanda Pushkar to an FBI lab in the US, has been tasked with studying facilities in forensic labs there and also the working in police stations so that some practices can be replicated back in India.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (South) Prem Nath, who is in Washington DC, will be staying there for a week and will not only study the system at FBI labs but also keenly see the way a police station works there and will then give a report to Delhi Police top brass so that the good practices can be followed here in the national capital.

"He (Prem Nath) is supposed to stay there for a week. Apart from delivering the exhibits to the FBI labs, he was asked that he should also study the systems at the FBI lab and in case we can replicate some of them, which are not available in India so that will be useful for our police forces," said Delhi Police Commissioner B S Bassi.

52-year-old Sunanda was found dead in her suite at a five star hotel in south Delhi on the night of January 17, 2014, a day after she was involved in a spat with Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar on Twitter over the latter's alleged affair with her husband Shashi Tharoor.

Police had on January 1 filed a murder case and formed an SIT to probe the case. Her viscera samples have been sent to an FBI lab to determine the kind of poison that caused

JOHN ARMSTRONG'S NID98 SPEECH [TRANSCRIBER'S NOTE: As he did during the previous year's "Harvey and Lee" presentation, Mr. Armstrong projected images of many of the documents he used researching his speech. Although it is impossible to include them in this transcription, I have left in his visual cues "(SLIDE #)" and "(RIGHT #)" to give the reader an impression of the amount of documentary support he provided.] Mr. Armstrong: In 1996, one of the FBI's top scientists, Frederick Whitehurst, disclosed that the FBI crime lab had fabricated evidence in the World Trade Center and Oklahoma City bombings. Is anyone surprised? They were fabricating evidence in the Kennedy assassination 35 years ago and tonight I'll show you a few examples how this was done. On the evening of the assassination FBI director Hoover told Lyndon Johnson "we have up here the tape recording and the photograph of the man who was at the Soviet embassy using Oswald's name. That picture and tape recording do not correspond to this man's voice, nor to his appearance. In other words, it appears that there is a second person who was at the Soviet embassy down there." A second person? Lyndon Johnson understood. Johnson's aide Cliff Carter ordered Dallas District Attorney Henry Wade "not to allege a conspiracy" and then ordered Dallas Police Chief Jesse Curry to turn over all evidence to the FBI. (SLIDE 1) Curry told the Warren Commission "about midnight Friday night--November 22--we agreed to let the FBI have all the evidence and they said they would have an agent stand by and when they were finished with it, return it to us". The evidence consisted of Oswald's possessions taken by Dallas Police from the Paine house and 1026 N. Beckley. James Cadigan, an FBI document specialist, received Oswald's possessions in Washington. Cadigan said (SLIDE 2) "Initially the first big batch of evidence was brought in on November 23 and consisted of many, many items. When Cadigan was asked if he recalled one of the items he said "when the vast bulk of this material came in it was photographed. But to remember one item out of four or five hundred, I cannot say I definitely recall seeing this". Cadigan's testimony was revealing. The FBI had secretly obtained "four or five hundred items" of Oswald's possessions on November 23rd--three days before they took over the case. Cadigan's testimony regarding Oswald's possessions in Washington on November 23rd is preserved in his original deposition. (SLIDE 3) But when reprinted in the Warren Volumes, references to November 23rd were deleted. When Jesse Curry began to explain how the FBI took Oswald's possessions to Washington on November 23rd, Allen Dulles adjourned the meeting. Cadigan and Curry's testimony was suppressed for good reason: the public and news media were told the FBI took over the case and obtained Oswald's possessions on November 26th. They were not told the FBI had secretly taken Oswald's possessions to Washington, kept them for three days, and then returned them. There was no paperwork, no photographs, and no way of knowing if the items taken to Washington were the same items returned to Dallas three days later. When returned to the Dallas Police Oswald's possessions were photographed with a desk mounted Recordak camera which took precise, crystal clear photographs. (SLIDE 4) The Dallas Police used 5 rolls of film to photograph 455 items of evidence. Each of the 455 items were numbered, photographed, and inventoried. When the FBI took over the investigation on November 26th, the Dallas Police turned over their evidence and undeveloped film. (SLIDE 5) They requested the FBI process and return 3 prints of each item. (SLIDE 6) But the FBI did not return any photographs to the Dallas Police, nor did they return any of the original 5 rolls of film. What they did was alter the Dallas Police film. (SLIDE 7) The 1st roll contained negatives #1 through #163. The 2nd, 3rd and 4th rolls of film disappeared entirely. The 5th roll contained negatives #361 to #451. The FBI altered negatives on roll #1 and roll #5. They then copied roll #1 and roll #5 and returned the copies to the Dallas Police on December 1st. (show rolls of DPD film) (SLIDE 8) Chief Curry noticed the missing negatives and notified the FBI on December 2nd. The missing negatives were blamed on the Dallas Police photographer. They said he used (SLIDE 9) "faulty technique" when photographing Oswald's possessions. If there was any "faulty technique" it could be seen, frame by frame, on the original film; but all 5 original rolls disappeared while in FBI custody. All that remains are the two copied rolls, available from the Dallas Archives. These rolls show us which frames the FBI removed and which frames they altered. The first roll of film stops at negative 163 (SLIDE 10). Negatives 168, 169 and 175 are Oswald's W-2 tax forms, which are listed on this FBI inventory form (RIGHT 2) are supposed to follow the negatives shown on this film. As you can clearly see, the original Dallas Police film, which allegedly contained negatives of the W-2 forms, has been cut and a blank strip of film spliced in. Officers Rose, Stowell and Adamcik followed police procedure by (SLIDE 11) initialing each item to establish a chain of evidence. Each item was then listed on their handwritten inventory. But there are no Dallas Police initials on the W-2 forms found in the National Archives. None were listed on the handwritten (SLIDE 12) or typed (RIGHT 3) Dallas Police inventories. None are among the items photographed on the floor of the Dallas Police station. These W-2 forms, which appear to have been typed with the same typewriter, are listed on the FBI/Dallas Police inventory only after Oswald's possessions were returned from Washington. Each W-2 form has the initials of FBI laboratory technician Robert Frazier (SLIDE 13). The fact is that there is no evidence that any of these w-2 forms were found at Ruth Paine's house. * * * A small German camera was found and initialed by Gus Rose. It was listed on the handwritten inventory (SLIDE 14), the typed inventory and the Dallas Police/FBI inventory. The chain of custody for the Minox camera from the Paine's garage to the FBI is complete. The camera and 8 other items were photographed by the Dallas Police and the undeveloped film given to the FBI. But by the time copies of the film were returned to the Dallas Police, the negative (SLIDE 15) had been altered. This alteration caused the Minox camera to disappear from the photograph (RIGHT 4). The Minox camera disappeared for a good reason. It would difficult to explain why a common laborer possessed an expensive Minox spy camera and there were rumors that Oswald was an FBI informant. Anything that hinted of a connection between Oswald and the intelligence community was suppressed. FBI agents were dispatched to Police headquarters. They asked Gus Rose to change the property invoice from a "minox camera" to a "minox light meter" (SLIDE 16). When he refused FBI agents went to Officer Hill and asked him to change the property inventory form. Hill complied and wrote "the FBI had requested I change the property forms from a minox camera to a minox light meter" (RIGHT 5). After the Minox disappeared from the photo, and was changed on the Dallas Property clerk's invoice, the FBI changed their inventory list (SLIDE 17) to read "minox light meter". They photographed a light meter (RIGHT 6) and returned the photograph to the Dallas Police. They never did explain the numerous rolls of Minox film listed on their inventory. Two months later the FBI allegedly picked up a Minox camera from Michael Paine described as rusty and inoperable. They then told the public that the Minox camera belonged to Michael Paine. Michael Paine said in a television interview that the camera had been returned to him by the FBI in the summer of 1964. He then said that his apartment was burglarized and all of his camera equipment, including his Minox camera, was lost. But in the National Archives there is a Minox camera in mint condition--the one found by Gus Rose in the Paine garage. The last example of evidence alteration I will discuss is the most difficult to follow. It involves the two Oswald wallets found in Oak Cliff and is detailed in Dale Myers' new book _With Malice_. A wallet was found at the scene of the Tippit murder by Dallas Police which contained identification for Lee Harvey Oswald and Alik Hidell (SLIDE 18). Twenty minutes later a different wallet was taken from Oswald's left rear pocket by Detective Paul Bentley (RIGHT 7). This wallet, the "arrest wallet" also contained identification for Lee Harvey Oswald and Alik Hidell. Both wallets remained in custody of the Dallas Police from November 22nd until November 26th. Bentley turned over Oswald's "arrest wallet" to Lt. Baker. The wallet and contents were kept in this well worn envelope (SLIDE 19) in the property room until turned over to the FBI. Photographs of the "arrest wallet" and contents were taken by the Dallas Police on November 23rd and given to the FBI and Secret Service (SLIDE 20). The wallet found at the Tippit murder scene turned up in Captain Fritz's desk drawer where it remained until November 27th. On November 25th, Oswald's possessions were returned from Washington to be inventoried and photographed. Here we begin to see how the FBI tampered with the wallets. The FBI inventory listed two wallets--items #114 and #382 (SLIDE 21)--yet neither was "Oswald's arrest wallet" or the "wallet from Tippit murder scene". These inventory sheets showed the wallets coming from the Ruth Paine's house. But neither wallet was initialed by Dallas Police. Neither wallet was listed on the Dallas Police handwritten inventory (SLIDE 22) completed at Ruth Paine's house. Neither wallet was listed on the Dallas Police typed inventory-which became Warren Commission exhibits (RIGHT 8). Neither wallet was photographed among Oswald's possessions on the floor of the Dallas Police station. Yet two wallets were listed on the FBI inventory--where did they come from? Were they on the Dallas Police evidence film? To answer that question, I looked at the two rolls of film returned to the Dallas Police by the FBI. (Hold up Dallas Police film) Item #114 was listed (SLIDE 23) as "brown billfold with Marine group photograph." But negative #114 (RIGHT 9) showed only the Marine group photo. When a photograph is made from this negative, the "brown billfold"--allegedly from Ruth Paine's house--disappeared (SLIDE 24). Item #382 (SLIDE 25) was listed on the FBI inventory as "red billfold and one scrap of white paper with Russian script". But negative #382 (RIGHT 10) showed only the paper with the Russian script. When a photograph is made from this negative the "red billfold"--allegedly from Ruth Paine's house--disappeared (SLIDE 26). Both negatives were altered between the time the Dallas police turned over their original undeveloped film to the FBI and the FBI returned copies of that film to the police. Why cause the wallets in the original film to disappear? Because the original photos taken by the Dallas Police were probably photographs of the "arrest wallet" and the "Tippit murder scene wallet"--two wallets which contained identification for Oswald and Hidell which would have been unexplainable. To find out what happened to "Oswald's arrest wallet" and the "Tippit murder scene wallet" we must again look at the Dallas Police film. The 2nd roll of film begins in the middle of negative #361 (SLIDE 27) and ends in the middle of negative #451 (RIGHT 11). All of the negative images after #451, with one exception, were ruined. The one exception is the negative image of a wallet (SLIDE 28). When the negative image is developed into a photograph, you can see that it is "Oswald's arrest wallet" (RIGHT 12). This wallet, along with all other items in this film, were sent to Washington on November 26th.... Remember when I told you the Dallas Police were blamed for the 255 missing negatives because of "faulty technique"? Does this look like faulty technique? Or does this look like another example of the FBI splicing together and tampering with the original Dallas Police film? With the "Oswald arrest wallet" in Washington, the "Tippit murder scene wallet" remained in Captain Fritz's desk drawer. On November 27th, James Hosty picked up the "Tippit murder scene wallet" from Fritz and gave Fritz a signed receipt (SLIDE 29). Hosty then took that wallet and other items obtained from Fritz to the Dallas FBI office. According to Hosty, these items were neither photographed nor inventoried. They were placed in a box and flown to Washington by Warren DeBreuys. Two days later the Dallas Police notified the FBI they had failed to photograph the wallet and contents and wanted photos (RIGHT 13). The FBI ignored this request and never photographed the "Tippit murder scene wallet". The only known photos of this wallet are from WFAA newsreel film. When the FBI finished altering Oswald's possessions, Hoover sent this March 1964 memo (SLIDE 30): "the Bureau has re-photographed all of the material in possession of the Bureau and will send a complete set of these photographs to you by separate mail". Included among the hundreds of new FBI photographs were items #114 (SLIDE 31) and #382 (RIGHT 14). These two wallets were substituted for "Oswalds arrest wallet" and the "Tippit murder scene wallet".... There were also newly created FBI photographs of W-2 forms, each initialed by FBI lab technician Robert Frazier as well as the newly created photograph of the Minox light meter. These FBI photographs were received by the Dallas Police in March, 1964. To complete the charade Hoover sent a new inventory list. Hoover explained (SLIDE 32) "The inventory list submitted by your office November 26, has been superseded by the list furnished to your office by the FBI Laboratory dated February 1, 1964. The list submitted by your office is incomplete and is not completely accurate". Hoover attempted to blame the Dallas Police and his own Dallas field office for producing an "incomplete and inaccurate" inventory. The list Hoover called incomplete and inaccurate is Warren Commission exhibit #2003 (RIGHT 15). One final thought on the physical evidence. The W-2 forms, the Minox camera, and the wallets are a few examples of evidence alteration by the FBI. These items were allegedly found at Ruth Paine's. Nearly all of the questionable items of evidence including the backyard photos, the Mexico City bus ticket, the Imperial Reflex camera, the two Klein Sporting Goods coupons, the Minox camera and other questionable "items of evidence" came from the Paines. If we had known in 1964 that over half of the original Dallas Police film disappeared while at FBI headquarters, and that Dallas Police film had been altered while in possession of the FBI, and that original items of evidence were altered, then we would have demanded to know why the FBI was tampering with evidence. If we had known Oswald owned a Minox spy camera, and if we had known the police found two wallets in Oak Cliff with Oswald and Hidell identification, then we would have asked a lot more questions about the identity of Oswald. Next, I would like to discuss witness testimony. The FBI's first priority was (SLIDE 33) "to set out the evidence showing that Oswald is responsible for the shooting that killed the President". On Dec. 3rd, a UPI release stated "an exhaustive FBI report now nearly ready for the White House will indicate that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone and unaided assassin of President Kennedy". Hoover had leaked this information to United Press hoping "to blunt the drive for an independent investigation of the assassination." His efforts failed and the Warren Commission was created. As Warren Commission members were assembled, the FBI's number three official, William Sullivan, said (SLIDE 34) "Hoover did not like to see the Warren Commission come into existence. He showed marked interest in limiting the scope of it or circumventing the scope of it and taking any action that might result in neutralizing it". Hoover was concerned the Warren Commission would take testimony from witnesses that conflicted with the FBI's already completed report naming Oswald as the lone assassin. Sullivan said (SLIDE 35) "if there were documents that possibly Hoover didn't want to come to the light of the public, then those documents no longer exist, and the truth will never be known". In that one sentence, Sullivan told us how the FBI handled the investigation: if they didn't want documents to come to the light of the public, then those documents would disappear. There are some 5.5 million pages of documents in the JFK collection at the National Archives. Less than 18000 pages are in the Warren Volumes. Serious researchers, such as my friend Malcolm Blunt, have focused on those 5,482,000 pages in the National Archives--the documents few people have seen. Malcolm spent 6 months last year at the Archives and located thousands of important documents and photographs, many of which he provided to me. These records allow us to see what the government was hiding. Piecing together these documents allows us to help correct the historical record. Tonight, I will discuss some of the FBI documents that were not available to the public in 1964. There are far too many documents to display on the screen and discuss in detail, so I have briefly summarized their content and listed them. Copies of the original documents will be available from JFK Lancer. (SLIDE 36) The FBI told us Jack Ruby was a night club owner, had some organized crime connections, and shot Oswald out of sympathy for Mrs. Kennedy. (RIGHT 16) They did not tell us that Ruby ran guns to Cuba, knew and associated with the former President of Cuba, CIA connected gunrunners, Lee Oswald, and was an FBI contact. In 1957, Ruby co-owned a Havana gaming house with former Cuban President Carlos Prio and was smuggling arms to Castro. Flights were arranged by Ruby and piloted by Mack Blaney Johnson. Ruby accumulated guns and ammunition and stored them in a two-story house in Kemah, Texas. The arms were loaded onto government surplus-type landing craft destined for Cuba. Robert McKeown and Carlos Prio gathered supplies for Castro. Arms were supplied by the CIA and shipped to Houston by commercial truck lines. In February 1958, McKeown was caught with over two million dollars worth of arms, was given a 60-day jail sentence, and placed on five years' probation. Donald Browder purchased arms from a CIA proprietor, Interarmco, and then smuggled the arms to Cuba. Most of the arms destined for Cuba were supplied by the CIA. In 1958 Jack Rubenstein wrote to the State Department Office of Munitions Control requesting permission to negotiate the purchase of firearms and ammunition from an Italian firm. The Oklahoma State Crime Commission linked Jack Rubenstein to a carload of guns and ammunition destined for Cuba. In 1959, after Castro took over, Santos Trafficante and Jake Lansky were arrested and jailed. Within a few days, Ruby contacted Robert McKeown, a personal friend of Fidel Castro, and requested his help in securing their release. Ruby returned to Cuba on several occasions in 1959, but the political situation had changed. Former Castro supporters were leaving Cuba by the boatload and found their way to Miami and New Orleans where they formed anti-Castro groups. In March 1959 Ruby became an FBI contact through Agent Charles Flynn. Hoover later denied both Oswald and Ruby were ever FBI informants. Ruby met in Beaumont and later in Dallas with Thomas Eli Davis, a well known gunrunner with strong CIA ties. Warren Commission attorneys Leon Hubert and Burt Griffin had substantial evidence that Ruby had maintained unexplained Cuban connections. When they tried to convince Warren Commission members that further investigation was needed, their efforts were blocked by the CIA. The FBI told us Guy Bannister ran a small private detective agency in New Orleans They didn't tell us that after the Cuban revolution many Cuban refugees, intelligence operatives and soldier of fortune types knew and were closely associated with Guy Bannister. Bannister employee Al Campbell said that Bannister worked closely with Ray Huff and the CIA and had a lot to do with the overthrow of President Arbenz of Guatemala. The Schlumberger Well Services company often served as an arms depot for the CIA. In 1959 Bannister associates Dave Ferrie, Gordon Novel and others removed arms and munitions from the Schlumberger Depot in Houma, Louisiana. Their efforts and the CIA's complicity was disguised when Schlumberger claimed their facility had been burglarized. (SLIDE 37) The FBI told us that Oswald defected to Russia in 1959, married a Russian girl, and returned to the US in June 1962. They withheld all FBI interviews with people who had contact with Lee Oswald in the United States during the same time. Captain Valentine Ashworth roomed with Oswald in New Orleans in 1959. He and Oswald were trying to infiltrate Cuban exile groups. Oswald's friend, Barbara Reid, kept a page from the guest register book of the McBeth Rooming house for June, 1959 which showed Lee Oswald registered in room D. Gladys Davis told the FBI that her husband and a Cuban known to her as "Mexicano", introduced Oswald to her in July or August, 1959, at her home in Miami. Marita Lorenz told the FBI she met Lee Oswald at a safehouse in Miami in 1960. She met Oswald the following year at a training camp in the Everglades where Alex Rorke took photographs of Lee Oswald and the training camps. In June, 1960, J. Edgar Hoover wrote "there is a possibility that someone is using Oswald's birth certificate". This memo was unknown to the Warren Commission and the public for over 20 years. (SLIDE 38) There is no reference in the Warren Report to the Friends of Democratic Cuba. (RIGHT 18) The FBI certainly knew who they were. . . . Several FBI and CIA agents were members. In January, 1961 the Friends for Democratic Cuba was founded by ex-FBI agent Guy Bannister and former Oswald employer Gerard Tujague. Members included FBI Agents Lansing Logan and Regis Kennedy, CIA Agents William Dalzell and Joseph Newbrough, anti-Castro Cubans Sergio Arcacha Smith and Carlos Quiroga, soldier of fortune types like ex-marine Joseph Moore and Jim Ivey and local businessmen like Gerard Tujague and Grady Durham. Regis Kennedy and Joe Newbrough spent a lot of time at Bannister's office and made frequent trips to the Cuban training camps north of Lake Pontchartrain where Dave Ferrie was involved in the training of troops. CIA Agent William Dalzell said Bannister's group was involved in undercover operations with the CIA and FBI which involved the transportation of individuals and supplies in and out of Cuba. The supplies came from the CIA funded Mardi Gras Corporation. (SLIDE 39) The FBI told us that in 1961 Oswald had married a Russian girl and was making plans to return to the US. (RIGHT 19) In 1964 these FBI reports were not available to the public. Lee Oswald and Friends of Democratic Cuba member Joseph Moore visited the Bolton Ford Dealership in New Orleans in January, 1961, and wanted to purchase trucks to be sent to Cuba. Lee Oswald visited the Dumas and Milnes auto dealership in New Orleans in the Spring of 1961 and discussed the purchase of a 1958 Chevrolet with salesman James Spencer. An army intelligence report placed Oswald in Havana, Cuba with Enrique Luaces in April, 1961, discussing the sale of M-1 rifles. Lee Oswald visited Ray Carney several times at the Dallas/Garland airport in July, 1961. Oswald tried to get Carney to turn over his list of pilots who volunteered to fly over Cuba. In August, 1961, Robert and Nancy Perrin, a former employee of Ruby's, claimed they attended three meetings at an apartment in Dallas for the purpose of arranging to run guns to Cuba. Perrin said Jack Ruby was at two of the meetings. Steve Landesberg told the FBI he and Oswald created demonstrations in New York City in late 1961 and early 1962. In early 1962, Michael Hadley, an employee of the Court of Two Sisters Restaurant in New Orleans, said Lee Oswald resided in a small apartment above the restaurant. Hadley overheard Oswald talk with the night manager, Gene Davis, about Clem Bertrand. The FBI did not interview employees of the restaurant who could have identified Oswald. They didn't need to. Gene Davis, the night manager who spoke with Oswald, was an active FBI informant. CIA Agent Donald Norton claimed to have given Harvey Lee $50,000 in Monteray, Mexico. Norton said Harvey Lee was identical to Oswald except that his hair was thicker. (SLIDE 40) The FBI and the Warren Commission concluded Ruby and Oswald did not know each other. (RIGHT 20) Yet here is a list of people who disagree--most of them were interviewed by the FBI. Memphis Attorney Daniel Thomas McGown found a letter addressed to Jake Rubenstein outside the Carousel Club. The return address was "Lee Oswald, 1106 Diceman Avenue, Dallas, Texas". Robert Price, Dolores Price and a former Ruby employee saw Ruby and Oswald together at the Escapades Lounge in Houston on April 11, 1963. They stayed 4 hours and said they were scheduled to leave from Alvin, Texas at 6:30 pm by plane for Cuba. George Faraldo, airport manager at Key West, Florida took both movie film and still photos of a group of people, including Ruby and Oswald, boarding a plane for Cuba. Vern Davis, who had known Ruby for 10 years, saw and spoke with Ruby and Lee Harvey Oswald at Jack's bar on Exposition Street in Dallas. In the summer of 1963 Dorothy Marcum dated Ruby and her aunt worked for Ruby. She said not only did Oswald and Ruby know each other, but Ruby had employed Oswald during June and July. Francis Hise was being interviewed by Ruby for a waitress job, when a young man came into the Carousel Club. Ruby called him "Ozzie", told him to go back into the room, and soon joined him. On another occasion, the same man came into the bar and asked if he could buy Miss Hise a drink. When Ruby came in they both left together. Miss Hise later recognized the man as Lee Harvey Oswald. Clyde Limbough was another employee who had worked for Jack Ruby for three years. He recalled seeing Oswald in Ruby's office on three separate occasions. Robert Roy, Ruby's auto mechanic, said that when Oswald would drop off Ruby's car for repairs, he would take Oswald back to Ruby's burlesque house in Dallas. When asked how many times he had driven Oswald, Roy said "several times." Ruby used to park his car at Gibbs Auto Service on Field Street. Leon Woods, the manager, kept a record of who borrowed Jack Ruby's car from the garage after receiving permission from Ruby. The FBI took the "checkout and checkin book" that reflected the use of Ruby's car and never returned it. When Dallas reporter Earl Golz asked the FBI about Gibbs Auto Service and the checkin/checkout book, they said they knew nothing about it. Long distance operator Marion Hayes handled telephone calls from a man in Chamblee, Georgia who tried to phone Oswald in New Orleans without success. She then completed a call to Oswald in Dallas, and later completed a call to Jack Ruby in Dallas. A Dallas telephone company operator in the Whitehall exchange recorded frequent calls between Ruby and Oswald. A record was kept because whenever the pay phone in Oswald's rooming house was busy, Ruby would tell the operator he had an emergency call to make and she would ask whoever was on the line to get off. In such cases the operator must make out a slip recording the call. Ruby used this device frequently enough so the operator remembered the calls. These "emergency call records" may have been among phone company records given to the Dallas Police by Raymond Acker. Acker, a Southwestern Bell employee, provided Dallas Police with phone company records of calls between Oswald and Ruby. In the days leading up to the assassination Ruby's handyman, Larry Craford, received many telephone calls from an unknown male who would never leave a message when Ruby was out. When Craford asked Ruby about these strange calls, Ruby told him to mind his own business. These Ruby/Oswald sightings are significant. But the real significance of these sightings is that they occurred in the spring and summer of 1963--while Harvey and Marina were in New Orleans. Ruby's use of the nickname "Ozzie" was the same nickname used by Marines for Oswald in Japan. Ruby gave us a clue to his knowledge of Oswald when he spoke out and corrected Henry Wade in the Dallas Police Station. Wade said Oswald belonged to the Free Cuba Committee and Ruby corrected him by saying "That's Fair Play for Cuba Committee". After Ruby shot Oswald. Ruby told his psychiatrist he had been involved in a conspiracy to murder the President. (SLIDE 41) The FBI told us Oswald, in the summer of 1963, worked at Reilly Coffee, was fired, and handed out Fair Play for Cuba literature in support of Castro. (RIGHT 21) But the FBI didn't tell us that nearly everyone with whom Oswald came in contact in 1963 in New Orleans was connected with US intelligence. Reilly Coffee employee William Monahan, an ex-FBI Agent, reported Oswald's employment to the FBI. FBI Agent Milton Kaack interviewed Oswald's landlord, Jesse Garner, a few weeks after Oswald arrived. Adrian Alba owned the Crescent City Garage where the Secret Service, FBI, and CIA parked their cars. Alba witnessed an unknown FBI agent, using a government car from his garage, hand packages to Oswald on two separate occasions. Oswald was seen in Guy Bannister's office on several occasions by Bannister's secretary and girlfriend, Delphine Roberts, as well as several Bannister employees. Former CIA Agent William Gaudet saw Oswald engaged in "deep conversation with Bannister". Gaudet's identity was hidden by the FBI for years--perhaps because he and Oswald obtained visas to Mexico on the same day. Oswald was friendly with Dave Smith, a US Customs agent, who was transferred to Uraguay after the assassination. Oswald was friendly with Mr. Rouge, of the Immigration and Naturalization service, who was transferred to Puerto Rico after the assassination. (SLIDE 42) In August, 1963, Oswald handing out Fair Play for Cuba literature. Warren Commission Attorney Jenner asked Oswald's brother, John Pic, "Do you recognize the young man handing out the leaflets?" Pic replied "No, sir, I would be unable to recognize him". Jenner replied "As to whether he was your brother". Pic replied "That is correct". Look at the people involved with the Fair Play for Cuba leafletting incident: (RIGHT 22) ** CIA agent William Gaudet watched Oswald through his office in the International Trade Mart ** The FBI photographed Oswald ** WDSU-TV filmed Oswald--cameraman Orvie Aucoin was an FBI informant ** Charles Hall Steel helped Oswald pass out leaflets--he was an FBI informant ** Oswald was arrested with three Cubans ** Miguel Cruz-FBI informant T-2 ** Carlos Bringuier-FBI informant for Warren DeBreuys ** Celso Hernandes who was arrested with Lee Oswald on Breakwater Street in New Orleans by Officer Charles Noto in 1961 ** When Oswald was taken to jail he requested to speak with an FBI agent. The agent was John Quigley who interviewed Oswald for 2 hours. Oswald was interviewed a short time later on WDSU radio. The moderator was Bill Stuckey, an FBI informant. Carlos Bringuier, another FBI informant, was a guest. Edward Scannel Butler was the other guest. Butler was a close friend of Guy Bannister and head of the Information Counsel of the Americas--affiliated with and funded by the CIA. CIA Agent William Gaudet said it was Butler who organized the radio debate. Everyone associated with the Fair Play for Cuba leaflet episode and Oswald's radio interview was connected to intelligence agencies--everyone including Oswald. Had we known this in 1963 we would have realized this was a staged event. The FBI knew but told no one. This staged event would be shown on national television within hours of Oswald's arrest. Tt created the impression that Oswald was communist, linked to Cuba. and provided the motive for assassinating the President--and the FBI knew better. (SLIDE 43) Evidence suggests that the people who planned the assassination wanted to link Oswald with Cuba in order to justify an invasion of Cuba. But the day after the assassination President Johnson's aide, Cliff Carter, called Dallas District Attorney Henry Wade and order him not to allege a conspiracy. (RIGHT 23) The FBI then suppressed most allegations linking Oswald to Cuba. Mrs. Lou Hayes, a close personal friend of Warren Commission member Hale Boggs, told the FBI about meeting Oswald in August, 1963. Oswald talked about his "recent trip to Cuba ..... he saw Castro". Lee Oswald's attempted purchase of rifles from Castro gun runner Robert McKeown (SLIDE 44) in Houston in September 1963 was by far the most significant attempt to link Oswald to Cuba. Had Lee Oswald succeeded in purchasing rifles from Castro's friend and gun runner, the link between Oswald, Castro and Cuba may have been strong enough for the public to demand an invasion of Cuba. David Atlee Phillips, head of Cuban Propaganda for the CIA, was seen by Antonio Veciana talking to Lee Oswald at the Southland Building in Dallas in September--while Harvey was in New Orleans. It is not unreasonable to speculate that David Phillips masterminded a plan whereby Lee Oswald was used to impersonate and set up "Harvey" as the assassin. Antonio Veciana's cousin worked at the Cuban Embassy in Mexico City. David Atlee Phillips asked Veciana to offer his cousin a large sum of money to say he and his wife met Oswald in wald was in New Orleans until Sept 25, and in Mexico City until October 3. (RIGHT 25) But neither the FBI nor the Warren Commission could explain the testimony of the following witnesses who placed Oswald in Dallas in Irving when Oswald was supposed to be in New Orleans: Cliff Shasteen, a barber and Irving City Counsel member, said he cut Oswald's hair every other week beginning in late summer. Oswald drove Ruth Paine's car to his barber shop. He saw Oswald at Williamsburg's Drug , Hutchison's Grocery and other Irving locations. On one occasion Oswald drove a 1958 Ford. Shasteen said Oswald had "nearly black hair", not medium brown hair as shown in Oswald's arrest photos, but "nearly black hair". Shasteen said Oswald always wore coveralls that buttoned up the front, and yellow shoes which Oswald said he purchased on one of his many trips to Mexico. But neither coveralls nor yellow shoes were found among Oswald's possessions. When FBI Agent Bardwell Odom told Shasteen that his testimony contradicted other Warren Commission testimony Shasteen replied "I can't help what it contradicts, that's just the fact and that's it". Store owner Leonard Hutchinson said Oswald visited his market during August and September, 1963. He said Oswald came to his store during the weekdays, arriving around 7:15 am. On September Range, the Warren Commission told us Oswald was in Mexico City from Sept 26th through October 3rd. They had little choice. Remember--Hoover told Lyndon Johnson on the evening of the assassination "we have up here the tape recording and the photograph of the man who was at the Soviet embassy using Oswald's name. That picture and tape recording do not correspond to this man's voice, nor to his appearance. In other words, it appears that there is a second person who was at the Soviet embassy down there." If a second person was at the Cuban and Russian Embassies trying to obtain visas, then someone was trying to link Oswald to Cuba and the FBI knew it. Hoover had the photograph taken by the CIA (SLIDE 47) and knew it was not Oswald. FBI agents listened to a tape recording of a person speaking Russian to Russian embassy employees and knew that person was not Oswald. Cuban consul Eusebio Azcue and Sylvia DuMexico City. (SLIDE 49) After Harvey returned to Dallas on October 3rd, his alleged support of Castro and his interest in Cuba disappeared. The FBI and Warren Commission told us Oswald lived in Oak Cliff and spent the weekends with Marina at the Paine house in Irving. But the FBI had other reports (RIGHT 28): On October 4th the FBI had a report of Oswald spending the night in Alice, Texas, with his wife and child. On October 4th the FBI had a report of Oswald involved in a lengthy conversation with Jack Ruby at the Carousel Club; overheard by Dallas Attorney Carroll Jarnagin. (WC #2821) On October 4th Marina and Ruth Paine said Oswald spent the evening and night at the Paine house in Irving, Texas. On October 5th Oswald visited radio station KOPY in Alice, Texas, filled out an employment application and spoke with Laymon Stewart and Robert Janca. Oswald applied for a job at the Continental Oil Company in Houston with a Mrs. Sheppard a few days later. Oswald attempted to cash a $65 check at George Ryan's store in Houston on three occasions. Ruby employees William Crowe, Wally Weston, Dixie Lynn and Kathy Kay claim to have seen Oswald in Ruby's Carousel Club. A few days before Oswald began working at the Book Depository he was interviewed by Laurel Kitrell of the Texas Employment Commission. Oswald told her he had lived in Russia and was accompanied by his very pregnant Russian wife. On October 17th, Lee Oswald was again target practicing at the Sports Drome Rifle Range. He arrived with another man in a car and wound up shooting at Mr. Slack's target. On October 22nd Oswald attended a party at the home of Harold Zotch in Grand Prairie, Texas, the same city in which Michael Paine was living at that time. Oswald spoke with Mrs. James Walker for nearly two hours and discussed his job at the "book store" and his wife who lived in Irving. Mrs. Walker noticed a tatoo on Oswald's left arm. The Oswald shot by Jack Ruby had no tatoos. Laurel Kitrell interviewed Oswald for a second time in late October. But this was not the same person she had interviewed before. She remembered they were very, very similar in appearance-- but were different people. She had no way of knowing that the Oswald she interviewed two weeks earlier was already employed at the Texas School Book Depository. Mrs. Kitrell was interviewed by the U.S. Attorney's Office and her interview was hand-delivered to the Warren Commission. But her interview was suppressed. Neither the Warren Commission nor the FBI wanted to hear about two Oswalds from Laurel Kitrell. On October 21st, FBI Agent Milton Kaack reviewed Oswald's birth records at the Department of Vital Statistics in New Orleans--one month before the assassination. Why? On October 25, Lee Oswald inquired about renting an apartment from Alvene Magee in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, telling her and others he had a gun collection. FBI Agent James Hosty told fellow FBI Agent Gayton Carver that Oswald was a paid FBI informant and that he contacted Oswald by placing notes under Oswald's apartment door. Carver said "you mean the Paine's house?" Hosty responded "No, Oswald's apartment." What apartment, where? In late October in Irving, Texas, Harry Spencer interviewed Lee Oswald for a job at his Heating and Air Conditioning company in the middle of the afternoon. Mrs. Ambrose Martinez, Intake Secretary of the Salvation Army in Dallas told the FBI that Lee and Marina Oswald, accompanied by two children, came to her office seeking aid. They gave Mrs. Ruth Paine as a reference. In early November, Oswald, accompanied by two women matching the description of Marguerite and Marina, attempted to cash a check in the amount of $189 made payable to Harvey Oswald at Hutchinsons Grocery in Irving. Marina denied this happened and Marguerite said she had not seen her son in over a year. On Wednesday, November 6, Oswald, wife and child arrived at the Furniture Mart in Irving around 2:00 p.m. in a 1958 blue Ford. This may have been the same 1958 Ford which Oswald drove to Shasteen's barber shop. Marina was recognized by Gertrude Hunter and store owner Edith Whitworth. They had seen and spoken to Marina at Minyards Grocery, the Shell service station, and other Irving locations. They had no doubt that Marina and Oswald were there. Deputy Constables Billy Preston and Ben Cash reported they had seen a receipt from a motel near New Orleans with Ruby and the Oswalds name on it a few weeks before the assassination. On November 14, Ruby and Oswald visited the New Port Motel in Morgan City, Louisiana. Corrine Villard, who had known Ruby since 1947, spoke with him for a half an hour. Jack Ruby and a man identified as Oswald visited the Contract Electronics store in Dallas at 3 pm for approximately one hour and spoke with Kermit Patterson, Donald Stuart and Charles Arndt. Oswald was identified from a New Orleans Police photographs. The employees said Oswald had a tatoo on his left forearm. These witnesses reported their contacts with Oswald to the FBI. Most interviews were suppressed because they conflicted with Oswald working at the Book Depository or--living in Oak Cliff. (SLIDE 50) While Oswald worked at the Book Depository from October 15 through November 22nd, without missing a day of work, someone was setting him up. (RIGHT 29) Three weeks before the assassination, Oswald was with David Ferrie, Gene Davis, and three unidentified men in an apartment above the Court of Two Sisters restaurant in New Orleans. Gene Davis knew Oswald and was an FBI informant. On October 31 an Oswald target practiced at the Sports Drome Rifle Range On October 31, an Oswald applied for a job at the high rise Statler Hilton Hotel in downtown Dallas. On November 1, an Oswald purchased ammunition at Morgan's Gun Shop. On November 4th, an Oswald visited Dial Ryders gun shop to have a scope mounted on his rifle. On November 9, an Oswald visited the Downtown Lincoln Mercury dealership where he gave his name to the salesman, test drove a new car at excessive speeds and said he would soon have enough cash to buy a new car. A week before the assassination an Oswald applied for a job at the Allright Parking garage, asked how high the Southland Building was, and if it had a good view of downtown Dallas. On November 14, Jack Ruby and Lee Oswald were at the New Port Motel in Morgan City, Louisiana. Corrine Villard, who had known Ruby since 1947 spoke with them for a half an hour. A rifle with a scope, ammunition, target practice, a tall building from which to shoot the President, and soon enough cash to buy a new car. Someone was setting up Oswald. The FBI and Warren Commission told us that Oswald continued to work at the Book Depository in the days preceding the assassination. But they didn't explain: (RIGHT 30) Lee Oswald, seen by 5 employees at the Dobbs House Restaurant at 10:00 am on Wednesday, November 20th. A half an hour later Ralph Yates picked up a hitchhiker on Beckley Street and drove him to the Book Depository (RIGHT 31). The man introduced himself to Mr. Yates as "Lee Harvey Oswald". Oswald was carrying a 4 foot long package wrapped in brown paper which he said contained curtain rods. The FBI suppressed their interview and polygraph of Ralph Yates. They told us the package used to carry the rifle, allegedly containing curtain rods, was brought to the Book Depository by Oswald two days later in Wesley Frazier's car. The FBI said Oswald spent Thursday evening at the Paine's house in Irving. In 1963 we didn't know of Helen McIntosh. On Thursday evening she was visiting her friend when someone knocketark. This story was further confirmed by Top 10 Record store employee Louis Cortinas. This is virtually the same time that Harvey Oswald was walking to Wesley Frazier's house in Irving,13 miles away. (RIGHT 33) The FBI interviewed Fred Moore who said Lee Oswald entered the Jiffy store on Industrial Blvd at 8:30 a.m. and bought two beers-while Harvey Oswald was working at the Book Depository. Oswald produced a Texas drivers license with the name of Lee Oswald for identification to store clerk Fred Moore. Oswald returned a half an hour later and bought another beer and two pieces of Peco Brittle. The Warren Commission told us that Howard Brennan saw Oswald shoot the President from the Book Depository. But they never explained the two men on the 6th floor as described by Arnoldaw the Rambler station wagon stop in front of the Book Depository and a man, who he later identified as Oswald, get into the car and leave in the direction of Oak Cliff. The statements of Marvin Robinson and Roy Cooper who also saw the young man get into the station wagon were suppressed. (SLIDE 53) The Warren Commission said Oswald left his rooming house wearing a light colored jacket and brown shirt at 1:04 p.m., walked east past 10th and Patton, shot Officer Tippit at 1:15 p.m. and ran to the Texas Theater. But several witnesses placed Oswald, wearing a brown shirt, in the Texas Theater at 1:15, not at 10th and Patton. Theater concession operator Butch Burroughs sold Oswald popcorn at 1:15. Dallas Evangelist Jack Davis said Oswald was sitting next to him while the opening credits to the movie were running--at 1:20 p.m. Perhaps some of the twenty four theater patrons would have remembered Oswald, but a list of their names and addresses, taken by Dallas Police, disappeared. The Warren Commission had one witness who said Oswald was walking east on Patton, but five witnesses saw Oswald walking WEST on Patton. The Warren Commission said the passenger side window on Tippit's car was rolled up. But Jimmy Bart, Helen Markham and Jack Tatum saw Oswald talking to Tippit through the "rolled down" window described by Detective Paul Bentley when he arrived on the scene. A rolled down window would allow Oswald to "reach in an hand something to Tippit," as described by FBI Agent Bob Barrett. That something was probably Lee Oswald's wallet, photographed by Ron Reiland of WFAA-TV as it was held by Sgt. Bud Owens and inspected by Officer Doughty. FBI Agent Bob Barrett spoke to Dallas Police Captain Westbrook about the wallet and the Oswald/Hidell identifications. The Warren Commission said Oswald shot Tippit and ran towards. Jefferson Blvd. Jack Tatum saw Oswald shoot Tippit several times, but then, instead of running off, Oswald walked to the front of the car and carefully, deliberately, shot Tippit in the head. Consider this: At 1:15 p.m. the Dallas Police did not yet have a suspect in the President's murder and had no idea where to find him. Leaving a wallet, with Oswald and Hidell identification at the scene of the Tippit murder, guaranteed the police would search for Lee Harvey Oswald. If they had not found Oswald at the Texas Theater, the police would have soon learned that Oswald had left the Book Depository. Book Depository records showed Oswald's address as 2515 W. 5th in Irving. A search of that address, Ruth Paine's house, would produce order blanks from Kleins Sporting Goods. Kleins records would show a rifle ordered by Alik Hidell of Dallas. Hidell was the second set of identification found in the wallet at the Tippit murder scene. (SLIDE 54) The Warren Commisrion said Oswald, wearing a dark shirt and light colored jacket left the Tippit murder scene. (RIGHT 34) But FBI reports of Smith, Tatum, Scoggins, Callaway and Brock said Oswald was wearing a light colored shirt. Police dispatches at 1:22 p.m. and 1:33 p.m. said the suspect was wearing a white shirt, not a dark shirt. Domingo Benavides, who saw Tippit's killer as he was leaving, remembered "his hairline kind of went down and square off instead of tapering off" above the collar line. Oswald's hair was not squared off. It tapered down well below his collar line. The Warren Commission said Oswald discarded his jacket at the Texaco station and ran to the Texas Theater. But was it his jacket? All of Oswald's clothing was size small. This jacket was size medium. This jacket had two laundry tags, yet the FBI could not match either tag to any of several hundred commercial laundries which they checked in the Dallas area. The FBI and Warren Commission told us Oswald snuck into the Texas Theater and took a seat on the lower level. But when Texas Theater employee Julia Postal called the police she reported Oswald was in the balcony. Dallas Police officers entered the theater, ran to the balcony, and were questioning theater patrons as more police entered the rear of the theater on the lower level. Captain Westbrook and FBI Agent Bob Barrett, who had just arrived from the Tippit murder scene, were among these officers. They knew the identity of their suspect from identification found in the wallet left at the Tippit murder scene. After a scuffle police arrested the man wearing the brown shirt. (SLIDE 55) The Warren Commission told us Oswald was take-n out the front of the Theater, placed into a squad car, and driven to police headquarters. No one told the public about Bernard Haire, who owned Bernies Hobbie Shop close to the Theater. He saw the Dallas Police take a white male, approximately 25 years of age, dark hair, wearing a pull over shirt and dark pants, out the rear of the theater, place him in a police car and drive off. The Warren Commission told us the police learned Oswald's identity while en route to the police station after his arrest. Detective Paul Bentley removed Oswald's wallet from his left rear pocket and found ident 56) The FBI and Warren Commission told us Oswald was at police headquarters by 2:00 p.m. But the FBI didn't tell us that shortly after 2:00 p.m. Mr. T.F. White saw a man he later identified as Lee Harvey Oswald sitting in a car, with the engine running, behind a large billboard sign in the El Chico parking lot. This was six blocks from the Texas Theater. As White approached the car, the man sped off throwing gravel with his rear tires. The license plates, whose number White wrote down, belonged a vehicle owned by Collins Radio employee Carl Mather. Mather was the best friend of Dallas Police Officer J.D. Tippit. Mather, unknown to the Warren Commission, was granted immunity and interviewed by the HSCA. His interview remains classified. (SLIDE 57) The Warren Commission told us that Oswald was arraigned for murder at 1 a.m. on November 23. But the FBI did not tell us about Mary Lawrence, head waitress of the Lucas B&B Restaurant, who had known Jack Ruby for eight years. to its logical conclusion. But when Ruby shot Oswald, it became easier to convince the public that Oswald was the lone assassin. Their efforts, however, were not without problems. Problems developed when reports of Oswald's driving surfaced in the media. Many people knew Oswald could drive. (SLIDE 58), but if Oswald's driving was confirmed questions would be raised: did he drive to Mexico, did he drive in south Texas, did he drive to Robert McKeown's near Houston, did he and Marina drive to the Furniture Mart, did he drive Ruth Paine's car to Shasteen's Barber Shop and Hutchinson's grocery, did he drive the Comet at the Lincoln Mercury dealership? If Oswald drove to all these places, then he must have had a driver's license. Did Oswald drive Jack Ruby's car? Perhaps Oswald and Ruby did know each other. But how could Oswald and Ruby have been together in the summer of 1963, when Oswald was in New Orleans? If Oswald had a Texas driver's license, what information could be found in his file in Austin? All of these questions could be avoided if the public could be convinced Oswald did not drive. The cothem. Its hard to argue with their supervisor (RIGHT 37) who said she knew from direct personal experience that Oswald had a driver's license and that his license and file were pulled at tz in 1963 and saw Oswald drive. Decide for yourself whether to believe employees and supervisors of the Texas Department of Public Safety and a couple dozen witnesses... or Marina. Most researchers have heard of Marina's questionable testimony, but few bother to check details or understand the extent of her contradictions. Warren Commission attorneys recognized the problem and studied her testimony (SLIDE 60). A little known report stated (RIGHT 38) "Marinas testimony is so full of confusion and contradiction that without cross-examination it reads like a nightmare". Warren Commission Attorney Bert Griffin called her a liar. The HSCA (SLIDE 61) compared her Warren Commission, FBI and HSCA testimony. Their 29 page report listed dozens of unexplained contradictions. They questioned where and when Marina learned to speak English. She spoke English with US defector Robert Webster in Leningrad, shortly before she moved to Minsk and met Oswald, another US defector. Her English handwriting, written on the back of these photographs prior to November, 1963, is very good (RIGHT 39). Marina's cooperation with the government and her ability to supply evidence at the most opportune times has been noticeable and quite obvious. Questions among CIA analysts prompted a series of investigations into her background (SLIDE 62). 1 urge you to read them (RIGHT 40) and their conclusions. An example of Marina's questionable integrity and unexplained intentions surfaced recently. Jeremy Gunn, of the Records Review Board, called Marina and requested the release of Oswald' tax returns. Marina replied (SLIDE 63) "1 have no problem releasing tax records and I will agree to have them released to journalists who will publish them". Journalists, is she kidding? How can we possibly determine the legitimacy of records of questionable origin casually submitted to journalists? Records Review Board Chairman John Tunheim and Marina were together on the Oprah Winfrey show. When asked Judge Tunheim asked Marina to release Oswald's tax returns, Marina said they were not important and changed the subject. What Tunheim andmost researchers did not know was that Marina had already released the returns 20 years ago to the HSCA. (RIGHT 41) But she didn't tell anyone, including Tunheim. Why? What was she hiding? Was she afraid the Review Board would get verifiable tax returns from the HSCA files? In 1964 Marina applied for Social Security benefits. The Social Security Administration listed Oswald's lifetime earnings as $3306.85. (SLIDE 64) This amount, to the penny, are Oswald's 1962 and 1963 earnings (RIGHT 42). Carol Hewitt, an attorney specializing in Social Security claims, advised that Social Security death benefits are based upon lifetime earnings. Oswald's 1955-1959 wages, excluding military pay, represent 33 percent of hfION REPORT! The Social Security Administration denied even thes garage? The ones that didn't have the initials of Dallas Police Officers, were not listed in any Dallas Police inventory (RIGHT 44) and were cut out of the original five rolls of Dallas Police film. The reason Agent Kelley was not able to list Oswald's income from these companies was because these forms were not yet available to him. These 1955 and 1956 W-2 forms have IRS Federal Tax ID numbers that were not issued until January, 1964 (RIGHT 45). These fake forms were created a month after they were allegedly found at the Paine garage. They bear only the initials of FBI lab technician Robert Frazier and were photographed by the FBI in February, 1964. When made available, the FBI was then able to fabricate Oswald's income and the years of his employment during the 1950s. The purpose of altering these w-2 forms and suppressing the 1950s Social Security records is simple. Palmer McBride, his co-workers and company owners said Oswald worked at the Pfisterer Dental Lab in New, Orleans in 1958. The Warren Commission said Oswald was in Japan at this time in the Marines. To avoid explaining how Oswald could be in two places at once, his Social Security records were suppressed, and 1956 W-2 forms were created to give the appearance Oswald worked at Pfisterers before he entered the Marines. If you want to know where one of the Oswalds was in 1958 ask the man who was with him every day for 9 months--Palmer McBride, his friend William Wullf or current Pfisterer President Linda Faircloth. I have shown you how the FBI manipulated evidence, suppressed and changed witness testimony, and how Marina's chameleon like testimony is, in the words of the Warren Commission "so full of confusion and contradiction it reads like a nightmare." But how many of you realize that nothing that I have shown you tonight has anything to do with the murder of President Kennedy? The Minox camera, w2 forms, wallets, drivers license, tax returns, Stripling Junior High records, these have nothing to do with the murder of the President... but they have everything to do with the identity of Oswald, because if Oswald's dual identity was discovered, it would link the ingelligence agencies--those who create dual identities--directly with the assassination. In 1961 the CIA obtained photos of Oswald, the defector, in Minsk from tourists. But was he a defector? (SLIDE 67) CIA employee Donald Deneslya read reports of a CIA agent who had worked at a radio factory in Minsk and returned to the US with a Russian wife and child. Dallas Police Captain Fritz said "you didn't have to sit there very long and listen to them talk to Oswald to realize that his guy had been trained in interrogation. By that I mean resisting interrogation." The afternoon of the assassination a Miami based reporter provided Dallas Seth Kantor with detailed biographical information on Oswald, before Oswald's name was broadcast on radio or TV. Harold Hendrix, who supplied this information, was a CIA "media friend" who acted as a conduit for CIA leaks at the time of the Kennedy assassination. CIA Agent Frank Sturgis supplied information to the press again and again trying to tie Oswald to Cuba. CIA officer David Phillips provided the Warren Commission with information that Oswald was at the Russian and Cuban embassies in Mexico City, then later admitted that the information he had provided was false. Former CIA agent Joseph Newbrough said he "believed Oswald was an agent for the CIA and acting under orders." (RIGHT 46) CIA paymaster James Wilcott said he had furnished money for the Oswald project, code named RX ZIM. He said it was common knowledge among his group that Oswald was an agent of the CIA. CIA Agent Donald Norton said "Oswald was with the CIA, and if he did it then you better believe the whole CIA was involved." (SLIDE 68) CIA Agent William Gaudet said "the man who probably knows as much as anybody alive on all of this... is... I still think is Howard Hunt," CIA Agent and Watergate burglar E. Howard Hunt. As researchers began to uncover indications of CIA involvement in the assassination, the CIA sent out this memo (RIGHT 47). They offered suggestions to media assets on how to block and impede investigation of the Kennedy assassination by researchers. Despite media assaults on critics, and die hard Warren Commission supporters, we continue to gather information in bits and pieces. We piece together documents like we would piece together a broken vase. One piece of a broken vase does not make a vase. Neither does a second or third piece. But at some point, when enough pieces are put together, you recognize the assembled pieces as a "vase". As more and more pieces of the Kennedy assassination are pieced together were are able to recognize the undeniable involvement of our intelligence agencies while the well worn picture of Oswald "the lone assassin" fades. Supporters of the Warren Commission cast their vote in 1964. As more and more information becomes available, the Warren Report is being exposed as the fraud that it is. For those people who cannot or do not want to accept that the Warren Commissions version of "Lee Harvey Oswald" was in realty two different people, I would like you to consider this: Proving the existence of two Oswalds is not subject to the rules of criminal procedure whereby all 12 jurors must agree. Proving the existence of two Oswalds is not subject to the rules of civil procedure whereby only the majority of jurors must agree. In reality, proving the existence of two Oswalds requires only one instance of Oswald being in two places at the same time--only one. If a single witness such as Mr. Kudlaty, Palmer McBride, Dr. Kurian, or any the dozens of witnesses I have discussed tonight is correct, then the existence of two Oswalds--Harvey and Lee--is undeniable. We must t

FBI agent accused of stealing heroin had first been addicted to painkillers

February 18 at 7:40 PM

For months, the FBI agents who worked with Matthew Lowry at the Washington Field Office explained away his erratic behavior as stress from a new baby, a troubled marriage and the pressure of building an expensive home in Southern Maryland. The usually dependable agent had become harder to reach, particularly during his off-hours.

Concern turned to desperation the night of Sept. 29, when the 33-year-old didn’t return home after work. His father, then an assistant police chief in Anne Arundel County, called his son’s friends and colleagues, launching a frantic, hours-long search across the District that ended under a crane in a dusty construction lot across from the Navy Yard.

There, two FBI agents found Lowry standing next to his black, government-issued Chevrolet Impala, and he was incoherent. Afraid he was contemplating suicide, the agents took Lowry’s sidearm from the holster and his M4 rifle from the trunk. They took him to another agent’s apartment and left the Chevy in the lot overnight.

Hours later, the case moved from a private struggle with addiction to an embarrassment for the FBI when, court documents say, agents found stolen drug evidence in Lowry’s car.

In the weeks that followed, criminal cases against 28 defendants, some of whom had pleaded guilty and been sent to prison, were dismissed after authorities deemed them tainted by Lowry’s alleged misconduct. Procedures at the Washington Field Office that allowed Lowry to repeatedly check drugs out of an evidence vault, and keep the packages for months without notice, were scrutinized, and changes were made.
A look at how Agent Lowry affected the case of Earl Owens, who was eventually dismissed. View Graphic

Lowry was suspended. He has not been charged with a crime, although an investigation is continuing.

Lowry’s path to addiction, and the hours in which his alleged thefts were revealed, are detailed in a statement from his attorney and in more than 600 pages of documents obtained by The Washington Post, including internal FBI memos and transcripts of interviews with agents.

The documents tell the story of a struggling FBI agent who graduated with honors from the University of Maryland and was a team leader of his class at the FBI academy but who fell victim to some of the same addictions he had sworn to eradicate through law enforcement. His attorney says that, like many other heroin users his client encountered over his career, Lowry’s drug use began with a dependence on prescription painkillers.

It wasn’t until the day after the agents found Lowry in the lot at Seventh and L streets in Southeast that one of them discovered a bag of heroin under a seat of the dirty car.

Then the FBI agent found another bag. And another. And another.

“It’s way worse than we could have imagined,” that agent later told investigators.

The first time Lowry used heroin was the summer or fall of 2013 while on an investigation the FBI dubbed Midnight Hustle. He told investigators that he took a small amount of the drug obtained in an undercover buy.

Photographs from FBI evidence files of heroin found in the car assigned to FBI agent Matthew Lowry. Prosecutors dropped drug cases against 28 defendants in four cases based on evidence now deemed tainted. (U.S. District Court)

Lowry became addicted to pain medication in 2012, the documents state; the reason was not divulged. His attorney, Robert C. Bonsib, would say only that Lowry suffered from a “severe medical condition.” His primary doctor left private practice for a research facility, and a new doctor prescribed “power pain medications” that Bonsib said alleviated symptoms but failed to address the underlying issues.

He said that his client became addicted to the drugs and that when that doctor suddenly disappeared, Lowry tried to sto
