JFK'S ASSASSINATION By Anthony Summers , Elias Demetracopoulos, G. Robert Blakey, Gerald Posner , Jefferson Morley, Jim Hougan, Jim Lesar , John McAdams, John Newman, Norman Mailer , Paul Hoch, Richard Whalen, Robbyn Swann Summers
To the Editors: As published authors of divergent views on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, we urge the Central Intelligence Agency and the Department of Defense to observe the spirit and letter of the 1992 JFK Assassination Records Act by releasing all relevant records on the activities of a career CIA operations officer named George E. Joannides, who died in 1990. The records concerning George Joannides meet the legal definition of "assassination-related" JFK records that must be "immediately" released under the JFK Records Act. They are assassination-related because of contacts between accused assassin Lee Harvey Oswald and a CIA-sponsored Cuban student group that Joannides guided and monitored in August 1963.

Gerald Posner, Norman Mailer and Don DeLillo back lawsuit to open secret files on CIA mystery man tied to Lee Harvey Oswald. By Jefferson Morley
A diverse group of authors and legal experts have announced their support for a lawsuit that demands the release of secret CIA records related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

November 24, 2003 | Newsweek,
In the late 1970s the CIA informed the House Select Committee on Assassinations that it had routinely destroyed any audiotapes of Oswald in Mexico City prior to JFK's murder, and that its surveillance cameras were not working on the days Oswald visited. However, in 200 pages of documents released by the CIA to the review board in September 1995, there are two memos, dated Dec. 10 and 12, 1963, that conclusively establish the agency had inadvertently discovered copies of Oswald's intercepts after JFK was murdered. Where are those intercepts? In 1971, when Winston Scott, the CIA station chief in Mexico City, died of a heart attack, counterintelligence chief James Angleton raced to Mexico and emptied Scott's safe and files. Scott was running the Mexico City office at the time of Oswald's visit, and Angleton had headed the CIA's minimal investigation into JFK's death. | Gerald Posner

JFK Lancer is a Dallas area historical research company specializing in the Kennedy assassination. Its document collections and publications have been distributed in more than 15 countries and have been source material for numerous documentaries and media interviews. Recently it has served as a primary source for an upcoming feature film produced by Gala Films.

JFK Lancer is active in obtaining and publishing document releases from the National Archives and well as interviews with individuals associated with the JFK assassination and its related inquiries. Information is published on CD, in print and in a series of chronicles. A key source of this information is the research presented in its annual Dallas conferences where the focus is on primary historical research as well as related technical studies relating to forensics associated with a study of the President's murder.

Lancer is presently publishing two new research books. The first is a study of individuals with inside knowledge of both the conspiracy and subsequent cover-up entitled "Someone Would Have Talked". This work is by Larry Hancock and is some 340 pages in length with an reference CD of approximately 1,400 pages of documents. The second book "The Eye of History," is an in depth series of interviews by William Law with primary witnesses to the President's autopsy including not only medical personnel but the two FBI agents who acted as observers and reported the findings to Director Hoover.

Lancer's publications, resources and activities ­ including various online forums ­ can be found at www.jfklancer.com



The November conference is an annual and unique event that has been ongoing since 1997. Presentations are selected for their contributions to the historical record and are based on new document releases, new forensics work or experiments and new witness interviews. The conference normally runs from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and involves workshops in Dealey Plaza where participants from outside Texas can gain a personal familiarity with the crime scene.

Individuals involved in this year's 40th anniversary conference include:

Jim Tague, who was actually injured by one of the shots fired in Dealey Plaza and whose information invalidated the first FBI recreation of the shooting resulting in the Warren Commission creation of the single bullet theory.

James Hosty, the FBI agent who was responsible for monitoring Lee Oswald at the time of the assassination and who will describe some very confidential information from FBI and other personnel in Mexico City which was apparently withheld from the Warren Commission.

A video interview with Jim Siebert, one of the two FBI agents who observed the autopsy of the deceased President; Siebert takes great exception to the so called single bullet and describes the fact that the final statement he was given by the Doctors contradicted many of the things he had seen and heard said during the autopsy.

Dr. William Zedlitz, a Parkland Hospital staff member present at the treatment of the fatally wounded President, who describes wounds at odds with those shown in the Warren Report.

Harold Rydberg, the medical illustrator at Bethesda who prepared the illustration of the President's wounds which was presented to the Warren Commission and used in its report; Rydberg will describe the circumstance of being locked in a room to work on the illustration and not being allowed to view any of the photographs and X-Ray material as was standard procedure in the preparation of all such official illustrations.

Sherry Guitierrez, former head of the Forensic Investigative Unit of the St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Department and recognized professional in the area of crime scene reconstruction and bloodstain pattern analysis. Guiterrrez will present her analysis of the blood stains in the President's vehicle as indicating the direction of the fatal shot and evaluate probable origins based on the blood spatter and head wounds.

Bob Dorff, a long time JFK researcher will present an interview with Dr. Donnie Bowers. Dr. Bowers treated Rose Cherimie, an individual who described an attack on the President the day and hours before it occurred an incident which was reported by the Louisiana State Police to the Dallas Police - with no response.

Dick Russell, author of "The Man Who Knew Too Much," is an investigative journalist and will present an update on Richard Case Nagell, a former military intelligence officer and CIA contract agent who was involved with Lee Oswald in Japan in 1957 and again in 1962-1963 in both New Orleans and Dallas.

1) Interviews conducted by the Assassinations Records Review Board as well as by individual researchers have documented the fact that many of the personnel involved with the photography and X-rays in the Kennedy autopsy repute the material now in the official archive. There is also evidence that a variety of materials seem to have simply disappeared. Even the camera now in evidence could not be verified as the actual camera in use at the time. In addition, statements were obtained that indicate extreme pressure was used to obtain signatures on affidavits pertaining to the evidence with individuals signed only under duress and protest.

2) Researchers have obtained a letter from the lawyer for the President's personal physician and Doctor that signed Kennedy's death certificate. This letter is an offer to the House Select Committee on Assassinations to present evidence that individuals other than Lee Oswald were involved in the murder of the President. No evidence has been found that the HSCA responded to the offer.

3) Tapes and documents have been obtained which indicate that on the weekend following the assassination, President Johnson was told that Lee Oswald had been impersonated during telephone calls to the Russian Embassy in Mexico City.

4) Documents have been obtained which show that the FBI and CIA were extremely worried in the days following the assassination about the fact that Lee Oswald had been in contact in Mexico City with a KGB officer suspected of being in charge of sabotage and assassination.

5) Researchers have documented several instances of calls from President Johnson's private aide Cliff Carter to law enforcement personnel in Dallas the evening of the assassination. These calls reveal orders from Johnson to avoid any charges or discussion of conspiracy regardless of what evidence might be obtained.

6) Researchers have obtained documents and statements from several individuals who privately described their involvement in a conspiracy to assassinate President Kennedy to family and their lawyers. These individuals were all mutually associated in 1962-1963 and were involved with CIA and exile anti-Castro activities. It has also been demonstrated that these individuals were aware that President Kennedy had begun private contacts with Fidel Castro in regard to re-establishing relations contingent upon Castro's breaking his relationship with Russia.

Book: Jacqueline Kennedy Contemplated Suicide
Fri Sep 5, 8:10 PM ET

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A despairing Jacqueline Kennedy spoke repeatedly to a priest about suicide in the months following her husband's assassination, according to a new book about the Kennedy family.

"It is so hard to bear," she told Father Richard McSorley about five months after President John F. Kennedy was shot and killed in Dallas in November 1963.

"I feel as though I am going out of my mind at times. Wouldn't God understand if I just wanted to be with him?"

Her frank talk about suicide with the Jesuit theology teacher from Georgetown University is revealed in author Thomas Maier's "The Kennedys: America's Emerald Kings" (Basic Books), which is excerpted in the October issue of Redbook magazine.
