Why would the government hold back the JFK assassination papers?

Filed under: General Discussion — bobfunke @ 2:26

I am about as far from a “conspiracy theorist”, however, I’ve always had my doubts that Oswald was the lone assassin in JFK’s murder.  There are a lot of reasons for this, not the least of which was having lived through that time, so I recall vividly that day, while I sat in class, a president was being killed In Dealy Plaza, Dallas TX.

I heard a lot back then, some of the names were alien to me, but I knew Johnson was now the president and he was from TX, which immediately meant to some that he had a hand in this tragedy. I think that is ludicrous. GHW Bush however might be a completely different story, if that really is him in the picture standing in front of the TX School Book Depository, I’d like to have a solid explanation of just why he was there.

But that’s only part of it, another major part is when the head of the Dallas PD had his pic taken while holding the alleged murder weapon in his ungloved  hands over his head. This is a gross violation in police procedures regarding evidence. I’m thinking this is why no prints were found on the Manlicher-Carcano rifle Oswald allegedly used, someone figured out the DPD blew it and wiped the weapon clean. The alternatives are, Oswald wiped down the weapon, (highly unlikely); Oswald wore gloves while committing the crime, (highly unlikely); someone else shot JFK, using gloves, (possible to likely); someone else shot JFK and wiped down the weapon, (possible, to likely); and other possible scenarios exist as well.

Most people don’t know there were two  rifles on the 6th floor that day, the Manlicher-Carcano and a Mauser, which a much better weapon than the M-C. Why would Oswald use an inferior rifle when a much better rifle was easily available?

Going on about the rifle Oswald allegedly used, why was it declared “clean” by the DPD, but when the SS went into the ER area where Oswald had died, with the Manlicher-Carcano in their possession,  when they came out, they stated they had one fingerprint and a palm print. Even to a novice this seems a little obvious as potentially tampering with evidence.

When watching Oswald’s face and body language during his press interview, he shows what I believe to be shock when told he was charged with the assassination. He recovers very quickly, but then is led out almost immediately while stating he was a “patsy”. It seemed like a remarkably quick “presser”, almost as if the DPD wanted him out of the room before he said something everyone was going to regret.

There has never been a viable explanation as to why Jack Ruby was in the pick-up area when Oswald was brought down. Ruby said he went there because he felt empathy for Jackie Kennedy, which may well be true, but beyond that, there is also the possibility he was in the area because he was allowed access for a number of reasons, one, of course being that he was “allowed” to go into the area to accomplish what he accomplished.

These are some of the things that may be answered if the 50,000+n pages due to be released on November 22nd are actually released.

We need to pressure congress to ensure these papers are released, we’ve waited far too long, after all as they tell us, “if you’ve done nothing wrong, you should not be afraid.”

All we want is the truth, it’s long overdue.
