DAVID FERRIE: WHY HE IS IMPORTANT IN THE KENNEDY ASSASSINATION

DAVID FERRIE: WHY HE IS IMPORTANT IN THE KENNEDY ASSASSINATION — AND EFFORTS BEING MADE TO HIDE IT Judyth Vary Baker David made a joke about me and Mary Sherman and himself when we three met for the first time. “Dr. Mary, Dr. Ferrie, and Dr. Vary!” he laughed. He repeated “Mary, Ferrie and Vary” a few more times that summer. It was an example of Dave’s wit and affability. Today, efforts are being made to erase all traces of David Ferrie as an active anti-Castro CIA asset in 1963…

DID ZAPRUDER FILM “THE ZAPRUDER FILM”?

DID ZAPRUDER FILM “THE ZAPRUDER FILM”? Jim Fetzer (with Mike Pincher) At first consideration, the question sounds very odd on its face. How could Zapruder have not taken “the Zapruder film”? So here is some background. As many readers may be aware, I organized a JFK research group in 1992 of the most highly-qualified persons to ever study the case, including a world authority on the human brain, who was also an expert on wound ballistics; a Ph.D. in physics who was also an M.D. and board-qualified in radiation oncology;…

A Response to Kevin Ryan (from a Mexican surfing MadMan)

A Response to Kevin Ryan (from a Mexican surfing MadMan) Allan Weisbecker Jim, Your recent bloggo-sphere conflict with Kevin Ryan did not surprise me – I’ve had my own problematical interaction with Doctor Ryan (coincidentally, with Bob Parry as well); somehow I feel qualified to comment here. As you likely know, Doctor Ryan has been doing investigative work regarding how the explosives came to be placed in the WTC towers (plus Building 7), i.e., in-depth histories of the security companies and personnel involved, and so forth. As you also know,…

7/7 Inquest: Was someone afraid to reveal the causes of deaths?

7/7 Inquest: Was someone afraid to reveal the causes of deaths?26 February 2011http://terroronthetube.co.uk Nicholas Kollerstrom It is quite startling to realise that a special room had been set up to receive the dead of the 7 July 2005 bombings in a temporary morgue built on army land, the contract for which (see Note [1] below) arrived on the contractor’s desk on 6 July 2005, the day before the massacres. All the bodies of the dead were taken and placed in cold-storage there. Not until the Inquest, five years later, did…

An Open Response to an “Open Letter” from Eric Larsen

An Open Response to an “Open Letter” from Eric Larsen Jim Fetzer Eric Larsen widely disseminated a letter enthusiastically endorsingJudy Wood’s book, which mistakenly conveyed to me the impression thathe, the editor and publisher of The Oliver Arts and Open Press, hadpublished WHERE DID THE TOWERS GO? (2010) by Judy Wood, Ph.D. The book is actually self-published and not from Larsen’s company. In his zest to attack anyone who has been critical of Judy, he published an “OPEN LETTER TO PATRIOTSQUESTION911”, a marvelous web site featuring photos, biosketches, and statements…

Big Government Secrets Aren’t Really Secret

Big Government Secrets Aren’t Really Secret By Preston James* The BIG GOVERNMENT SECRETS (BGS) aren’t really secret at all unless you are a witness or attempt to be a whistle blower but then “national security” must be invoked to silence you. Typically a direct or veiled threat is delivered to you first or you find yourself served with a National Security Letter or in extreme cases, a National Security Signed Finding. (More about that one at the end of this article.) As Professor Marshall McLuhan once stated, most BGS are…

On the Ethical Conduct of Warfare: Predator Drones

ON THE ETHICAL CONDUCT OF WARFARE: PREDATOR DRONES* Jim Fetzer “A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm” — Isaac Asimov’s “First Law of Robotics” Among the most intriguing questions that modern technology poses is the extent to which inanimate machines might be capable of replacing human beings in combat and warfare. The very idea of armies of robots has a certain appeal, even though “The Terminator” and “I, Robot”, have raised challenging questions related to the capacity for…

The Misadventures of Kevin Ryan

The Misadventures of Kevin Ryan Jim Fetzer In what has to be one of the more bizarre twists of fate in relation to the 9/11 truth movement, Kevin Ryan, whom I have admired in the past, has attacked me for criticizing an article by Robert Parry in “9/11 Truth is No ‘Parlor Game’.”  Ryan had already expressed his displeasure that I had responded to Parry’s trivialization of the truth movement in a thread on the bloggerbrigade and was apparently taken aback when some of those on the thread responded negatively…

9/11 Truth is No “Parlor Game”

9/11 Truth Is No “Parlor Game” Jim Fetzer A disturbing article on ConsortiumNews.com, “The 9/11 Truth Parlor Game” (15 January, updated 16 January 2011), by Robert Parry, advances the indefensible theory that the shooting of Representative Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) was affected by the shooter’s interest in 9/11 truth.  While there are good reasons to suspect that the political climate nurtured by the right wing may have influenced him (by targeting a series of representatives using the cross-hairs of a telescopic site, for example), there is no reason to believe than…
