  1. Larry, This may not be your cup of tea but I’ve nominated you for a Blogger recognition award. Don’t feel you have to play along but if you do check out this link for details: best wishes, Steve

    • Steve, thank you very much and I will most definitely follow the link. I know this blog covers a lot of ground in terms of topics but I do try and bring forward new JFK related information when I can and I’m always willing to talk about or take questions on the RFK and MLK assassinations as well. Many of the same subjects and issues continue to be debated in regard to JFK and Dallas so its a bit harder to come up with something really knew but I post when I think something is both credible and significant…with the good researchers I know, sometimes that takes a year or two to jell. I do need to post a couple of more things that came out of Dallas in the 2015 Lancer conference, one of which is that Gary Murr totally destroyed the FBI remark that the Carcano ammunition was made for the CIA. Indeed it was most definitely made for the Italian Army as machine gun ammo and then when the production slipped most of it ended up on the commercial market, going overseas and then back into the US via Canada.

      One of the reasons I go so far beyond JFK and his administration, not to mention his assassination, is that some much of contemporary history is still being driven by things that were set in motion in the early 1960’s, plus the fact that it is a really useful benchmark for evaluating current national security issues, one of my main interests these days. So again, thanks for the nomination, its is really appreciated!

        Larry, SWHT was my intro to the world of intrigue surrounding the JFK Assassination. I have to ask you if it is true that a DPD officer did a great deal of research about the department and it’s staff, never published, and upon his death left all of his material to Walt Brown, who has secured it and never devulged the contents. I am only asking whether you know this to be a fact, or just another myth. Finally, if you know the name of the DPD officer who presumably did any undisclosed DPD research would you be comfortable disclosing this name. I hope I am not asking an inappropriate question, but I have seen this come up from time to time and find it intriguing.
