Dialogue: Assassination #12 (1971-09-16) Show Notes

Main Subject(s): JFK Assassination, Attica Prison riots, Warren Commission

Updated 5/31/15: Added more info on the Attica Prison Riot.

– Mae talks about a United Press International (UPI) wire report from Sept. 14, 1971, about the hostages in the Attica Prison Riot who were killed (read story here). How originally they were reported to have had their throats slit by convicts during the fighting, but how 24 hours later, the medical examiners report stated that 8 out of 10 hostages died from gunshot wounds by police (read special investigation report on the Attica Massacre here).

– Mae talks about an article in Computers and Automation Journal, from Sept. 1970, titled “PATTERNS OF POLITICAL ASSASSINATION: How Many Coincidences Make a Plot?” (read here).  She relates the political assassinations taking place in America to the 400 murders which took place in Germany after the end of World War I, which paved the way for Adolf Hitler’s rise to power.  How the German courts were used to cover up the killings.  How Mae believes that the German industrial cartels and Nazi leaders who did not want to co-exist with the Soviet Union (USSR), infested the U. S. State Department and Pentagon after the Third Reich’s fall.  How these groups are directly linked to the assassinations of John F. Kennedy (JFK), Robert F. Kennedy (RFK), and other political leaders.

– Mae returns to the Attica Prison Riot.  She notes how the prisoners were asking for certain prison conditions to be improved.  How 700 state troopers, 600 National Guard troops, helicopters, and sheriffs deputies from 14 surrounding counties all responded to the riots. How the sheriffs deputies came in their own vehicles, armed to the teeth with hunting rifles, pistols, military carbines, and shotguns, and how they were given riot helmets and other equipment. How up until the time that these troops went into the prison, the hostages had not been harmed.

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.
