As The NSA Is My Witness #1 -- No Brains No Headaches
by JFK
Monday Dec 4th, 2006 5:37 PM
JFK - inside job
[As the NSA is my witness. You can see from this list that even mid-level actors were knocked off as a buffer for the top hat. That's just some fancy spy talk. Most of the folks in these lists are simply witnesses to the JFK assassination, but check out those folks who, like maybe Vince Foster, thought they were on the "good guys" team. See for yourself what the payoff was. These were witnesses that were scheduled to testify. One set of names was pertinent to the Warren Commission Report (which President Ford admitted he altered slightly) and the other set of names was pertinent to the more recent House Committee set up to re-investigate the JFK assassination. No conspiracy theory, it's just an interesting list. Check it out. -rs]
