Agent Hickey killed Kennedy- coming to television

Agent Hickey killed Kennedy- coming to television

Vince says- It was NOT Hickey's first time in the follow-up car: he rode in the follow-up car in Tampa, FL on 11/18/63. In addition, Hickey was NOT one of the 9 agents who drank the night before. Finally, Menninger was sued over this book from the agent's family who won the case. Avoid

JFK Second Shooter? New Documentary Makes Radical Claim
Posted:

A new documentary alleges that a Secret Service agent was the second (and accidental) shooter in the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
At the Television Critics Association press tour in Los Angeles on Sunday, producers and investigators behind Reelz Channel's new documentary "JFK: The Smoking Gun" made the claim that George Hickey, a Secret Service agent riding in the car behind Kennedy, accidentally shot the president on November 22, 1963. The film follows veteran police detective Colin McLaren in his four-year investigation of the assassination and points at Hickey, who died two years ago.
McLaren's research built on the work of Howard Donahue, who spent 20 years studying the assassination and had his findings documented in Bonar Menninger’s book Mortal Error: The Shot That Killed JFK. McLaren and Menninger were on hand Sunday to take questions about their film, which the network billed in press notes as a "docudrama."
Addressing the crowd, McLaren claimed that Hickey and other Secret Service agents were out partying the night before Kennedy's fatal motorcade drive through Dallas. Based on his painstaking investigation, McLaren said, evidence suggests Hickey was not qualified to use the weapon he was holding the morning of the shooting.
"It was his first time in the follow car, his first time holding the assault weapon he was using," McLaren said. Producers said the film's theory is that shots rang out, and Hickey grabbed his weapon to return fire. When his car stopped suddenly, Hickey accidentally discharged his weapon -- making him the second shooter, the film's investigators and producers alleged.
McLaren said he believes that Hickey's weapon had hollow-point rounds -- different from the ammunition for the weapon used by Lee Harvey Oswald, whom the Warren Commission declared in 1964 was the lone gunman in the case. Menninger and McLaren said that based on their review of the forensics in the case, they believe that Kennedy was also struck by a hollow-point round.
Oswald was killed before he could stand trial, but the case has continued to inspire various theories around just how the tragedy occurred. Books and films have advanced different ideas -- including a second shooter theory.
"We're not saying this was intentional," Menninger said Sunday. "This was a tragic accident in the heat of the moment."
"We don't suggest he was in any way involved in a conspiracy," Menninger added.
Donahue wrote about his theory decades ago, but McLaren said it's taken decades -- and the release of thousands of JFK-related documents during the Clinton administration -- for a proper review of all the evidence and information related to the case. The authors acknowledged Sunday that there are many other books and films on the assassination, but said theirs is unique because it is based on a new review of the documents released during the 1990s.
McLaren and Menninger also alleged that the government -- including Robert F. Kennedy -- covered up the involvement of the Secret Service and Hickey.
The producers were pressed on how the alleged involvement of the Secret Service could be covered up for 50 years.
"Nobody was going to gain" from having this out there, Menninger said.
"We're not here to blacken the name" of Hickey or any other individual, or the modern-day Secret Service, McLaren said.
Menninger discussed the fact that he was sued by Hickey in the 1990s, but noted that despite a settlement, his publisher never removed his book from the shelves.
"I'm sure that [Hickey] suffered greatly from this," Menninger said. "The fact that he passed on -- maybe it's time to talk about it."
"Our documentary is going to be the only one that has opened the case forensically and looked at the evidence from the beginning and examined everything that happened that day in Dealey Plaza," Michael Prupas, the film's executive director, said.
Reelz Channel gained notice two years ago for airing the miniseries "The Kennedys," which some historical experts criticized as an unflattering portrayal of the family.
"No other network will touch these things," Reelz's CEO Stanley S. Hubbard said Sunday.
The documentary is set to air on November 3, 2013, according to a press release.

"Into the Nightmare: My Search for the Killers of President John F. Kennedy and Officer J. D. Tippit" by Joseph McBride (2013)- essential!

"Into the Nightmare: My Search for the Killers of President John F. Kennedy and Officer J. D. Tippit" by Joseph McBride (2013)- essential!


5 out of 5 stars
A Master Work! July 23, 2013
By Vince Palamara


Every once in a while, a book comes along that is not merely a book, a good book, or even, for that matter, a great book, but what I am fond of calling a master work. "Into The Nightmare" by Joseph McBride is just such a rare commodity: a master work on the assassination that is very well written (even poetic at times), thought provoking, and well researched. Clearly, the author is passionate about both President Kennedy (having met the man several times in younger days) and his tragic assassination. This passion comes through, loud and clear, on every page, but without the shrill tone common in many books on this subject. In short, this volume was written with loving care, encompassing every facet of the case, including the murder of police officer J.D. Tippit, an area that usually receives short shrift in the literature of the assassination.

Along with other such master works as Jim Douglass "JFK & The Unspeakable" and Doug Horne's 5-volume"Inside The ARRB", McBride's book is an essential purchase and essential reading. This one is a keeper; a book you will refer back to again and again. They don't make them like this very often. Get this very fine volume asap- you'll be glad you did.

Up to 400 Expected For November Conference

Up to 400 Expected For November Conference at The Adolphus Hotel on JFK Assassination

Posted on July 17th, 2013 3:29pm by Glenn Hunter



Debra Conway, center, with JFK Lancer staffers and authors.

Debra Conway calls herself a happy housemaker, with lots of children and grandchildren. But she’s also a proficient organizer—and a dogged critic of the status quo. So, since 1995, Conway has run JFK Lancer Productions & Publications, a “historical research company specializing in the administration and assassination of President John F. Kennedy.” For nearly 20 years, Southlake-based JFK Lancer (Lancer was the late president’s Secret Service code name) has also put on a Dallas historical research conference focusing on the assassination.



This year’s gathering, on the 50th anniversary of JFK’s murder, is scheduled for Nov. 21-24 at The Adolphus hotel. The organizers are expecting 350 to 400 people to attend, and it doesn’t appear to be a conclave of whack-jobs, either. Attendees will include academics, medical doctors, and JFK-assassination eyewitnesses, and Jefferson Morley—a veteran Washington journalist who’s written for Slate, the New Republic and the Washington Post—will be the keynote speaker. “We’re not, ‘the UFOs did it.’ We are a very conservative group,” Conway says. The November event at the Adolphus will be “a way for people to better understand the documentation of the case, and where we are today compared to investigations in the 1960s.”





Conway says she’s “never felt comfortable with the way we were sold on” JFK’s killing, especially after living through the Watergate and Iran/Contra scandals. “People still care and want to study the assassination,” she says. “Why should we stop studying it? Do archeologists quit after finding one vase, and then go home?”



Perhaps surprisingly, Conway’s no fan of the aggressive conspiracy theorists who hawk JFK autopsy photos in Dealey Plaza. But she’s also no fan of the city of Dallas’s plans for a tightly regulated, Nov. 22 memorial there marked by limited ticket sales and police background checks. The conference too is planning its own remembrance ceremony on the plaza—sometime that day, anyway.



With Dallas expected to be in the global media spotlight on Nov. 22, Conway fears residents won’t like what results. “The city has every right to put on a program, but I never dreamed they’d do it this way,” she says. “I’m afraid the message is not going to be, ‘Dallas is trying to do something beautiful.’ It’s going to be, ‘Dallas has lost its mind, trying to keep people out of Dealey Plaza.’ “
