Dialogue: Assassination #10 (1971-09-02) Show Notes

Main Subject(s): JFK assassination, Warren Commission.

Updated 5/8/15 - Updated links to some articles.

– Mae talks about taking a two week vacation and just how much work goes into following the news everyday. She mentions the backlog of material she has which takes over a month to go through. She mentions Computers And Automation Journal (check it out here). She talks about a few articles in the back issues of this magazine, topics include: the JFK assassination, the lawsuit of Theodore Charach against the Los Angeles Police Departmant (LAPD), Edward M. Davis (former LAPD police chief), Evelle J. Younger (former California Attorney General), and Robert Houghton (former LAPD Chief of Detectives) for covering up the RFK assassination, how many coincidences make a plot in a political assassination, and the Jim Garrison investigation of Clay Shaw.

– Mae talks about receiving 1,900 pages of material from the National Archives from David Lifton. She talks about her theory that Lee and Marina Oswald were agents of the U.S. in some capacity. She reads some of the new material from the National Archives, including the working memos of the Warren Commission lawyers (mention of J. Lee Rankin and Arlen Spectre). She notes that the commission lawyers made comments on these working memos, and then reads how the lawyers wondered if Marina Oswald was more than just a simple peasant girl. The comments reveal that Marina had refused to identify her supervisors in Minsk. Another comment mentions the fact that Marina could have been used to “recruit” Lee Oswald while he was “assigned” to Minsk.

Dialogue: Assassination #9 (1971-08-25) Show Notes

Main Subject(s): JFK assassination, Warren Commission.

– Mae discusses why she does her research.

– Discussion of the recently declassified (at the time) minutes of the Warren Commission Executive Sessions. Mae touches on discussions between some Warren Commission members (she mentions Allen Dulles and John J. McCloy) on how much of their findings to publish and how much to suppress. How Dulles insisted all the testimony be published so there would be no accusations of coverup and how he didn’t think that “…anybody would pay any attention to it to begin with.” How the commission tried to dismiss evidence presented by Thomas Buchanan, Mark Lane and others, by having the Associated Press and United Press International investigate their claims.

– Mae mentions Commission member John Sherman Cooper in relation to his remarks on April 30, 1964, about the commissions investigation being weak in regards to Lee Harvey Oswald’s travel between to and from the Soviet Union (USSR), and his connection to George de Mohrenschildt. How the commission then went off-the-record to discuss something regarding de Mohrenschildt and his testimony.

– Mae relates how only 4 witnesses out of 552 gave testimony with a commission member present, violating their own rules. She then states that de Mohrenschildt was the most important witness to the whole commission. She explains that when de Mohrenschildt gave his testimony, only two people were present: Albert Jenner, senior counsel for the commission, and Alfred Goldberg, a Pentagon historian.
