The Kennedy Conspiracy is growing even stronger, in large part due to the work of Jefferson Morley, both in writing about it and more importantly in pressing the CIA to declassify documents. He now claims to have a “smoking gun” that will crack the case.
But does he? Bob Buzzanco has been one of the foremost critics of the JFK-Oliver Stone Conspiracy group and he and Morley had a long discussion about the claims of a government conspiracy to kill the President in 1963. They discussed the difficulty of getting government documents, Morley’s allegations about the CIA’s involvement in conducting surveillance on Lee Harvey Oswald and trying to flip him, and then making him the patsy for the killing, and how the CIA operates. Buzzanco repeatedly made the point that there was still no evidence, no real link, between government agents and the events in Dallas at Dealey Plaza.
Green & Red has been at the forefront of this debate and it continues with this great discussion.
