Re: interview

Post by greg parker on Tue 22 Apr 2014, 9:11 am

I have had criticism in the past for hording research for a book instead of posting. This thread is precisely why I did it.

There is no way I could have got PM into the papers without having had a book behind me. As it is, the journalist said she wished she'd found me for the 50th -- but if I had contacted the paper back then, I'd have been dismissed as a kook (I actually was not the one who contacted this time, either - someone tipped them off about the book)

Bloody brilliant!

p.s - I have wondered in the past whether Tippit was unrelated too. Even looking up the amount of police deaths in 63 and the surrounding years.

Congrats Greg. Regarding the Tippit case, he allegedly had an affair with a waitress.Could that have been the reason for his murder?

Congratulations, Greg. I wrote a letter to the Irish Times back before the 50th in which I mentioned the ‘Prayer Man’ thread but they didn’t bite, though they’d published quite a number of letters on other topics from me in the past.

One of the clinchers for PM being Oswald for me is the fact that WB Frazier didn’t deny that PM was Oswald when he was contacted about it. Qui tacet consentire (Silence gives consent).

On the JD Tippit murder, from my perspective of relative ignorance the most convincing explanation is that according to the plot Tippit was to murder Oswald on the pretext that he was resisting arrest. Tippit got cold feet at the last minute and his mafia handler terminated him for obvious reasons. That was the version on the mafia grapevine according to a Mafioso biography I flicked through about two decades ago.

This version ties in with what Anthony Summers wrote in The Kennedy Conspiracy (1980):

In its formal report the [HSCA] skipped over the Tippit murder in little more than a page. Yet in contradiction of its own thesis about Oswald, it said the Tippit murder was “more indicative of an execution than an act of defense intended to allow escape.” The Committee noted pointedly that the finishing-off of the fallen policeman – with a point-blank shot to the head – was typical of gangland murders.” (page 76)

Though I haven’t read Joseph McBride’s Into the Nightmare, the above version seems to also tie in with McBride’s description of Tippit frantically searching for Oswald before he was killed.

Of course some of the more knowledgeable members here may see obvious flaws in this version and if so I would appreciate if they could point them out.

I don't think my paper would have bitten either, if I had just sent it to them cold. The book filled the credibility gap, and I got lucky in that the reporter happened to have at least some fascination with the subject. 

When she asked me about Tippit, my immediate reaction was to say something that would stop that line of questioning. I wanted to stick to my own script. So what popped out was the "may not have anything to do with it." And it may not. There was also some talk of drug trafficking intertwined in the story? Can't recall the details. We also have the jealous husband line of thought. If it was connected to the assassination, then what has been proposed here sounds reasonable. The long and the short of it is, the Tippit killing is not the Rosetta Stone to me. I am totally satisfied Oswald didn't do it, and I don't need to work out who did, or why they did in order to solve the assassination.

I love it. Simple and straightforward. Doesn't depend on some Armstrongesque monstrosity that goes all the way back to the Mayflower Compact to prop it up.

Greg,  Why of all books did you have to have Legacy of  Secrecy at the top os the stack?

C'mon.  Waldron gets a photo op?

Second, I don't at all think the Tippit murder was unrelated to the assassination.  I think it was directly related to it.  The idea was to inflame the Dallas Police with hatred and bias against Oswald.  Since in a redneck town like that, the killing of Kennedy would not have been enough.

I mean, really, if it was unrelated who planted the wallet with Oswald's ID as Hidell?

Yeah... the stack was arbitrary. If I had the time again...

The wallet and jacket are problematic for any theory not tying it to the assassination. It could be argued that the plants were simply taking advantage of circumstances as they unfolded. If I do explore the Tippit case in detail, it will simply lay out the facts and let the reader decide. I think most would conclude on the facts, that there was a likelihood of a tie in.

All I'm saying is that unlike others, I don't need Tippit as a Rosetta Stone, and in relation to the interview, it was not a subject I had prepared to touch on. I was concentrating on PM. Apart from that,  I have my own big shine stones. I think they suffice.

It's a good piece, Greg. It will be interesting to see if any other journalists contact you, wishing to expand on PM.
