Film declares Bush Sr involved in Kennedy assassination

Film declares Bush Sr involved in Kennedy assassination
By Carol Forsloff.

One reviewer maintains a film indicating George H.W. Bush involvement in Kennedy assassination is one that raises questions in the light of present political discord, but the film itself might warrant a critical look.
Hankey's film, Dark Legacy, examines the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy in 1963 and makes the claim that George Herbert Walker Bush was involved by examining the former President's CIA relationships and where and what he was doing at the time of the assassination. Hankey is a former high school teacher from Southern California who has spent years researching his thesis, connecting the dots, and making his case, which one reviewer, Henry Eshelmann, maintains is compelling. Eshelmann observed yesterday Hankey has made a credible examination of the evidence in the film, calling it "spirited and well-documented."

This isn't the first time Hankey has put forth the film, and other reviewers declare "not so fast" to the notions he puts forth. For example, Seamus Coogan who writes for the CTKA, a group devoted to the study of the Kennedy assassination, maintains Hankey makes exorbitant claims about himself and his research and also distorts many facts. He writes this:
Where, when, and how did he "hang Kennedy's murder around Bush's neck"? Is JFK 2 evidence of this? Not on your life. The evidence would suggest that Hankey first got into his research around 1999, with the death of John Kennedy Jr. After that, around 2004, his video was cobbled together. Hankey seems to have had a mere 5-6 years of investigation under his belt before the film. But that's no excuse for 1.) The errors that riddle his work and 2.) His penchant for taking credit for things he did not achieve. 3.) His need to distort things both large and small.
Coogan's review is very detailed, and he quotes the assessments of other critics as he examines Hankey's film, which just yesterday has been touted again. His summary conclusion declares firmly that viewers need to look with a jaundiced eye upon many of Hankey's notions since they take away from serious investigations and mislead the public. He ends by saying, "There is nothing wrong with writing revisionist history. But if you choose to do so, you must be held to high standards of scholarship. "

CSI science could yield clues in MLK killing

Digital technology seen on the TV show CSI could help to identify still-unknown fingerprints collected by FBI agents in their investigation of the 1968 assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., experts say.

“The FBI collected literally dozens of unidentified prints from a number of different ‘crime scenes’ connected to the King case and James Earl Ray,” said Stuart Wexler, co-author of the upcoming book, Seeking Armageddon: The Effort to Kill Martin Luther King Jr.

Not safe for work.

The official video for Erykah Badu's new single "Window Seat" came out on Saturday and it's sparked a lot of chatter on Twitter and in the press. Badu shot it in a single-take, guerilla-style in Dallas' Dealey Plaza, the site of President John F. Kennedy's assassination. "Window Seat" opens with Erykah pulling up in a 1965 Lincoln Continental as a radio broadcast from 1963 describes the final moments leading up to the assassination. She then gets out of the car and walks toward Elm St. and the book depository, removes all of her clothes and collapses next to the grassy knoll.

“This was a system that allowed FBI officials to say we have searched our central records system and there is no record of illegal conduct’’ by the bureau, said Athan G. Theoharis, a former professor at Marquette University and a specialist on the reign of Hoover, who served as the agency’s first director, from 1924 to 1972, and who is known to have maintained his own files that he ordered destroyed after his death.

“It was a pretty efficient system Hoover devised,’’ Theoharis said. “If you can minimize who knew what the bureau is doing, you can minimize any legal action’’ against the bureau if it operated outside of the law.
