Featured: From the Archives
Kennedys And King continues the feature from CTKA where we present again certain important stories that Probe Magazine published in its seven year run. These stories were not included in the anthology from that journal entitled The Assassinations. That book, which Lisa Pease and I are very proud of, is still being sold on Amazon. But at our publisher's suggestion, we cut many articles out of it for reasons of length. What we cut out could have in fact made up a second volume.
Since much of that material was distinguished, we think it deserves to be circulated again. And by doing so we give our new readers an opportunity to understand what Probe Magazine was really like, and why so many recall it as the very best publication of its kind. We also hope to give you an example of what The Assassinations is made up of and what is available on the Probe CD.
- The FBI's Fib about the Mannlicher Carcano Written by Milicent CranorHow would the public have responded to the information that, when firing the last shot, the bullet would have gone at least 14 inches above the point of aim on Kennedy's head?, asks Milicent Cranor.
The following list represents essays and reviews from CTKA (2003-2016) which we deem to be particularly memorable.
- JFK and the Majestic Papers: The History of a Hoax, Introduction Written by Seamus CooganIntroduction to the 9-part series by Seamus Coogan on the MJ-12 hoax and why JFK researchers need to pay attention to this mess.
- John Hankey, Dark Legacy, aka JFK2 Written by Seamus CooganSeamus Coogan's review which started a firestorm on the JFK fora, and a series of further articles at CTKA.
- Why CBS Covered Up the JFK Assassination Written by James DiEugenioIn this two-part essay, Jim DiEugenio builds on unpublished material obtained by Roger Feinman from CBS in order to reconstruct how the 1967 CBS special became the shameless defense of the Warren Commission's case against Lee Harvey Oswald that it was.
- Deeper into Dave Perry Written by Bob FoxThere is a lot more to the Bledsoe arrest report than Dave Perry ever let on. Perry's writing is so incomplete, so one-sided, so agenda-driven as to be misleading. Which, as we have seen with Discovery Channel, is par for the course with him, writes Bob Fox.
- The JFK 10-Point Program Written by Joseph E. GreenJoseph Green calls upon the community of assassination researchers to find common ground, outlining a set of ten elements which can be agreed upon and which should be used in public pronouncements and to inform their organizational capacity.
- The Connally Bullet Written by Robert HarrisThe bullet or large fragment that Nolan turned in was obviously not from Oswald's rifle. If it was, the FBI would have flaunted it as absolute proof of the accused assassin's guilt. Instead, it provided absolute proof that Connally was hit by a bullet from a different assassin. Until recently, only Hoover and a handful of others were aware of that, concludes Robert Harris.
- Howard P. Willens, History Will Prove Us Right Written by Martin HayAuthor Martin Hay writes about Warren Commission lawyer Howard Willens and his continued belief in the conclusions of the Warren Report.
- Mexico City, Part 1 Written by David JosephsDavid Joseph reviews in detail the evidence for Oswald's alleged trip to Mexico City – Part 1.
- The Real Wikipedia? Will the Real Wikipedia Please Stand Up? Written by J. P. MrozMroz makes the central focus of this article the disinformation within JFK research data. But more specifically, a provable purveyor of such disinformation: that self-described "free, web-based, collaborative, multilingual encyclopedia project," aka, Wikipedia.
- Gary Mack's "Magical" Powers of Dissuasion Written by Ryan SiebenthalerWriting of an episode of Unsolved History, Ryan Siebenthaler states: "The show's producers and Mr. Mack are not working from empirical evidence in their deductions. They had an agenda ... to make the audience believe that there was no frontal shot. If the reader recalls, Mr. Mack did the same thing for Discovery Channel's Inside the Target Car, even altering the position of Jackie Kennedy's stand in inside the limousine".Written on Thursday, 23 January 2014 16:46
- Evaluating the Case against Lyndon Johnson Written by Vasilios VazakasThe weaknesses in the arguments that LBJ initiated and masterminded the plot to kill his predecessor offered by a number of recent books are here reviewed and synthesized.
