Last Second in Dallas, part 1

Jim DiEugenio writes part 1 of his mixed review of Josiah Thompson’s new book on the JFK case, Last Second in Dallas, by summarizing the first-person journey, recounted by Thompson, that led to his first book, Six Seconds in Dallas, and then discussing the troubling history of the media and scientific forces aligned to derail further investigations, including Jim Garrison’s.

Examines the evidence itself, including details offered in the document, the multiple Robert West surveys, notes, and tabulations, and the evidence available after fact from the witnesses.

Milicent Cranor examines how Don Thomas gives John Lattimer’s Thorburn story a make-over.

Jim Finn shows how the Warren Commission Issue of Life Magazine went through at least two redactions in which the frames and captions presenting the fatal shot were changed in order better to bolster the official conclusion. This was not the first instance of such duplicity for Life.

Bullet Trails on the Zapruder Film?

When there is enough humidity, bullets traveling over a certain velocity always create vapor trails. They last only milliseconds, and usually go unseen unless captured on film. Following is an explanation of this phenomenon, and a suggestion that it might explain the white lines seen on the Z film, or the puffs of “smoke” reported by witnesses.

Michael Le Flem finds this brief book on one of the most important figures in the history of United States psychological warfare and propaganda, Time-Life managing director C.D. Jackson, an engaging, nuanced and timely addition to Cold War historiography.

JFK Declassified: Tracking Oswald, Part 7

Arnaldo Fernandez returns to wrap up his review of this miserable History Channel series with a searing look at the seventh episode, which adds insult to injury by pretending to be an update in response to the October 26, 2017 “final declassification” of JFK records.

JFK Declassified: Tracking Oswald, Part 6

In this final installment of his review of the History Channel series, Arnaldo Fernandez concludes: “With Castro as vantage point instead of the CIA, Baer was not tracking Oswald to articulate a true picture of the past, but to drive the historical truth away.”

JFK Declassified: Tracking Oswald, Part 5

After mixing Oswald with the anti-Castro and CIA-backed paramilitaries of Alpha 66 in a weird pot made of “special intent to kill President Kennedy soup”, Baer keeps on blighting a big-budget TV show by ignoring the body of the evidence, writes Arnaldo Fernandez.  With an insert by Milicent Cranor on the History Channel's version of the "jet effect".
