in my opinion, the best answer to this is in Vince Palamara's book. From my cheesy web site, this is part of my review of Survivor's Guilt which addresses the issue […] What Vince does here is he shows with multi sources that, as Jim Garrison first stated, the route was altered. People like the shill McAdams, who have said it was not, just did not do any research on the subject. Of course, if he had and discovered this, he would have hushed it up anyway.
[DVP: They are wrong, certainly. But I don't think any of them are liars.]
[Michael Clark: Michael,
Did David Von Pein know about this discrepancy when he posted it? I do notice that one has 4 stars, and another has 3, presumably different editions.]
[BACK TO JIM:] If anything shows that there was a conflict about the route, I guess this really does.
Regarding the motorcade route, it seems clear that the Secret Service was in charge, not the White House (see Jerry Bruno's book on "Dallas"). That the actual route was Main St. or Elm was something known internally. Garrison thought it had been known but not published intentionally. It broke all Secret Service rules. Slow down the target for the triangulated crossfire. The removal of agent Lawton from the back of the presidential limo at the airport by Roberts speaks volumes.
Since, as the saying goes, the fish rots "from the top", it is my personal opinion that key figures in this whole mess were DPD Chief Curry and Asst Chief Batchelor. I also believe that the Deputy Chiefs, including Lumpkin and Stevenson were involved.
And Von Pein keeps on posting that story he posted days ago about the route being set by the 19th. Ignoring two facts:
The Dallas Morning News routinely ran multiple editions every single day, each one bearing a different number of stars. (So there was a "one-star", a "two-star," etc. up to about "5 stars"). This has been true for decades.
FWIW: I've just ordered a fresh copy of Palamara's book, because I want to re-read these passages, and check out the documentation.
[DVP: Anyway, thanks for the "multiple editions" information, David L.; it's certainly something I didn't realize until now.----!!!]
Hey Vince amazing work...seriously. Thank you. I was wondering if you’ve found anything of specific interest to you in the newest (or most recent) document releases or are you still digging lol?
