Conspiracy as reality is this place's jump point of departure. As it should be in any discussion or even internal contemplation of the murder of President Kennedy.
All as it ought to be.
I also think anyone that can should go to the plaza at least once. If for no other reason than to give moment of silence to Our Last President.
And some folks passed but elsewhere: Mae n Penn n John n others.
Privately is more my own way but to each their own as I hope gatherings and peer review based 'conventions' continue if nothing else for the unsupervised communication.
To the point of my appeal.
Once the plaza is done however long that takes to get past 'who dunnit' (shooters IDed), the 'how dunnit' and trip to research Mitch the 5th, once all that is done it is beneficial to pull the frame back to the long view.
I salute John Ritchson because he asked a question of Fletcher Prouty that transported me deep into the WHY DUNNIT.
He asked "Did Ed Lansdale have the command authority to stand down the 112th MIG?".
Simple query but I guess the aftershocks are still active today.
Into the JCS and contractors and the shifting of stuff around leading up to the murder.
The murk of the dark polysci and out of Dealy Plaza in my own search jumped there.
and a funny thing happened on the way to the football which is the "tell" for the level of command authority involved covertly.
Why is a much deeper and more revealing perspective.
Given the ARRB from inside work of Doug Horne the conspiracy is proven, but that isn't the damn issue.
The issue is the level executing power in the deceptions, liars, obstruction of justice and demonstrable Treason and worse not even giving a momentary shit about the consent of the governed.
"We dunnit and a giant **** on you!" is all they care about WeThePeople. Then, now and just as damn long as the people - WeThePeople stand for the bull.
Consent of the governed is only a school classroom topic for the deluded to them.
Isn't that issue at the least a part of the problem faced 50 years on?
