The Judgment of History; Or Why the Breaking of the Oligarchs Avenges President Kennedy's Assassination--Part Two
By Richard Girard
(Part One of this article is here.)
"When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth." -- Sherlock Holmes, A Study in Scarlet, Arthur Conan Doyle, 1887.
One of the things I find most frustrating is when I study information on President Kennedy's assassination, is the alacrity with which information is either accepted or rejected by other members of the Assassination community. The acceptance or rejection of the information is based not on whether or not the information is true, but on whether or not it fits in with their preconceived notion of what happened.
Sherlock Holmes most famous rule, which I quote above, has a less famous corollary to it: Never speculate until you have enough information to form a working hypothesis. As any criminologist or other forensic expert will tell you, it is not only useless, but dangerous to form any sort of opinion when you don't have the facts to support it.
This returns us to the McCone-Rowley Memorandum which I of wrote in Part One of this article.
Let me quickly list the reasons I think it is probably authentic:
Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) John McCone was not an intelligence professional; in fact he was a Republican businessman from California who had been brought in by JFK to act as a figurehead after the Bay of Pigs disaster. (JFK's brother Bobby did most of the actual oversight.) He knew that while President Kennedy had removed many of the snakes in the CIA upper ranks--including Allen Dulles, Richard Bissell, and Air Force Lt. General Charles Cabell--arguably the most dangerous viper of all, paranoid-reactionary James Jesus Angleton, still headed the counterintelligence Directorate at the CIA..
