My effort to poke the bare-faced prevaricator Dan E. Moldea has paid off.
The website Truthdig recently published Robert Scheer's indictment of JFK as the mob-associated mastermind of plots to assassinate Fidel Castro. Via the Facebook posting of the piece, I described Scheer's work as "one of the most naive, ill-informed, shallow -- and let's not forget fatally dated -- 'analyses' of the issue as it has ever been my displeasure to read."
Dan E. Moldea, the world's most prominent Sirhan-as-lone-nut disease carrier, chimed in to support his forged credentials as a seasoned and trustworthy journalist -- which presented an opportunity to draw him out of the shadows and into disinfecting sunlight..
And so I did.
The exchange to date appears below, as does a link to the Facebook page.
Charles Drago: You sold your soul, Dan E. Moldea, when you became, in my constitutionally protected, highly informed opinion, an accessory after the fact to RFK's murder. So why don't you just crawl away to Manila and play house with Thane Eugene Cesar? Your cyber-stench is unbearable.
Dan E. Moldea: Sirhan did it, and he did it alone. Prove me wrong, Charles, and you will make history. . . . Do what I did: Talk to the cops, talk to security guard Gene Cesar (who passed a polygraph test I arranged with flying colors), and spend 14 hours with Sirhan during three interviews--just as I did. . . . Until then, you are just another screwball who doesn't know what he's talking about.
Charles Drago: History has proven you wrong. Forensic science has proven you wrong. Uncontestable first-hand testimony from victim Paul Schrade and from a host of additional reliable witnesses -- all of which trumps your long-after-the-fact prevarications -- has proven you wrong.
You seriously ask me to take the words of suspects in the murder and cover-up over independent, qualified criminologists, physicians, academics, and other researchers who have proven you wrong, and I'm the "screwball"?
YOU, in your desperation and your self-contradictory "arguments", have proven you wrong. And all the appeals to authority and ad hominem attacks you muster fool only the foolish and the ignorant.
The burden of proof is your burden, and nothing you have written to date -- and certainly none of your desperate bluster as evidenced above and elsewhere -- can carry that burden. The weight of the evidence for conspiracy -- and for the innocence of Sirhan in terms of the murder charge -- is such that it supports this unequivocal statement: Anyone with reasonable access to the evidence in the case of the RFK assassination who does not conclude that he was killed as the result of a criminal conspiracy is cognitively impaired and/or complicit in the crime.
And you, Dan Moldea, give every appearance of being of sound mind.
So when are you and Gus Russo gonna shack up?
