The Judgment of History; Or Why the Breaking of the Oligarchs Avenges President Kennedy's Assassination--Part Four

By Richard Girard

" I call your attention Watson, to the curious circumstance of the dog barking in the night."

" But Holmes, the dog did not bark in the night."

" And that my dear Watson," said Sherlock Holmes, "is what is curious."

" The Silver Blaze;" The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes , Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, 1889.

Fratricide--An Introduction to Part Four

In my opinion, if there is a fault in the JFK Assassination Conspiracy community, it is a feeling of many within the community that "if you don't agree with my theory of what happened prior, on, and subsequent to November 22, 1963 at 12:30 PM in Dealey Plaza in Dallas, you are either an idiot, or a dupe of those who are trying hide the truth of President Kennedy's assassination from the public. I must agree that in the cases of the Warren Commission's apologists, an argument can be made for the last.

Related to this is the underlying attitude of some researchers that if you do not match my level of stridency concerning the murder of John F. Kennedy, you are either an unthinking zealot or an uncaring robot, depending on whether your feelings run hotter or colder than my own.

There is nothing new in these attitudes, or there intensity, concerning the assassination of President Kennedy. It occurred even in the early days of the First Generation Critics of the Warren Report, to use part of the sub-title of John Kelin's superb book Praise from a Future Generation: The Assassination of John F. Kennedy and the First Generation Critics of the Warren Report , when Leo Sauvage attacked Mark Lane and Thomas Buchanan in his book The Oswald Affair ( L' Affaire Oswald); (Kelin, Praise from a Future Generation ; pp.232-3, 235). All of us who care deeply for what happened to JFK latch on to the explanation we best understand, and we do not understand how your (in our eyes) far more complex or simple explanation is needed to convince others.

I do not propose that my proof of a conspiracy is better than any other student of JFK's assassination. There are people out there as diverse as OpEdNews's own Jerry Pollicoff, James H. Fetzer, and David W. Mantik, M.D, who have spent thousands of hours looking at the Zapruder and other films, as well as the available JFK autopsy evidence, consulting experts when they are unsure of their own hypotheses or conclusions. There are doubts concerning the factual authenticity of both the films and the autopsy evidence, and those doubts have existed since the mid-1960's, according to Mr. Kelin's book.

This is why I have taken the approach I have, emphasizing the 2 spent cartridge cases and one live cartridge (of dud), in order to prove the existence of a conspiracy. It is both simple and easily understandable, and I do not need to depend on any single film's veracity to prove my theory: I have 3 separate, original (day of the assassination or the day after), pieces of evidence that say there were only two rounds fired from the Texas School Book Depository (TSBD). Since all of the Warren Commission conclusions are based upon three shots being fired from the sixth floor of the TSBD, there had to be more than one gunman, thus there was a conspiracy. The fact that the FBI leaned so hard on James Tague to recant his version of how he was wounded, and then, when Tague would not recant, we had a sudden, almost miraculous appearance of a third spent shell casing for which there is no proper chain of custody, gives us a prima facie case of the FBI and the Dallas law enforcement's involvement in the conspiracy. Bill Decker, J. Edgar Hoover and Clyde Tolson were at the very least , accessories after the fact. This is not to disparage any other assassination critics, I--to my knowledge--just seem to be the first since Noel Twyman in Bloody Treason (1991) to fully realize the importance of those two spent cartridge cases, and the lack of a third, and the first to gather two photos--Jesse Curry's as well as the FBI's--to demonstrate that two was the initial story the conspirators were going to give the public.

The fact that the Warren Commission was provided with a copy of an FBI evidence inventory listing three spent shell casings (see above), rather than the two on the original inventory sheet (see below), demonstrates that no evidence from the FBI can be fully trusted. Also note that the three ("3") on the number of spent rounds of the second sheet--the one given to the Warren Commission--is larger and shaped differently from any other three ("3") on the page.

Here is the original Siebert-O'Neill-Drain evidence inventory:
