As mentioned in a previous blog post, my presentation at the November in Dallas Lancer conference dealt with new research by myself and David Boylan into the possible names that my have been in play during the “war stories” talk heard by Gene Wheaton. Names associated with direct knowledge of the attack on President Kennedy in Dallas.
In an hour of conference time I was barely able to provide an introduction to the subject, including the vetting of Wheaton and his two sources – CIA paramilitary officer Carl Jenkins and long time CIA anti-Castro operative, Rafael Quintero. Exactly how and when the dialogs heard by Wheaton occurred is covered in the 2010 edition of SWHT and is supported by the papers and correspondence Wheaton provided to the ARRB. The failure of the ARRB to respond in any proactive or positive fashion is also discussed in that book.
It should be noted that Wheaton tried to take both men to a US Senator, with negotiated grants of immunity. That offer was rejected and Wheaton was told if he pursued the matter his credibility would be undermined – a threat which indeed appears to have been carried out.
Much later, Quintero – a close personal friend of Wheaton, Quintero – confirmed that the dialogs and discussions had occurred as Wheaton described but that Wheaton had simply “misunderstood”.
What has become clear in the intervening years is that there is independent, if circumstantial, corroboration for the scenario and motives which Wheaton described hearing – discussed in front of him simply as a trusted third party.
That corroboration, and the possibilities it opens are discussed in the following monograph. For the sake of brevity sources are included directly in the monograph rather than footnoted; there are a few footnotes but virtually all the research is embedded in the text.
Debra Conway has been kind enough to archive the full paper which was presented at the conference and you can find it here:
I’d be happy to take questions on it here or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Certainly it is an ongoing project and while it can only take us so far, its implications are significant. As are the possible connection between certain of the individuals mentioned and New Orleans, Dallas Texas and Lee Oswald.
