Martin, testified that he and two other officers saw Johnson begin ducking down 30-40 seconds before the vehicle reached the intersection. The blow-up of the famed … Continue reading LBJ’s Mysterious Disappearance In Dealey Plaza – 11/22/1963

Goerner’s ’68 appeal to Republican House members

I urge readers of my blog to have a look at this excellent post by Mike Campbell at “Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last”. There are notable parallels in this story related to LBJ’s “patron saint” FDR. It involved how the POTUS in 1937 set up a cover-up in the case of the “missing” Amelia Earhart and how, 30 years later, LBJ set up another cover-up (one of the many he orchestrated) of the USS Liberty attack (The old saying, “an acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree” might apply here). I highly commend this essay, and Campbbell’s website and his quest for the truth of Amelia’s disappearance.

Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last

In July 1968, Fred Goerner appeared before a Republican platform subcommittee, chaired by Kentucky Governor Louie Broady Nunn, in a heretofore undisclosed Miami location.  Through his four-page presentation, “Crisis in Credibility—Truth in Government,” Goerner laid out the facts he had presented in The Search for Amelia Earhart, appealed to the members’ integrity and patriotism, and did his utmost to win them to the cause of securing justice for Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan.  It remains the closest thing to a fair hearing the truth in the Earhart disappearance has ever received. 

Goerner traced the Navy’s history of denying it held classified Earhart files until late 1964, when the State Department’s disclosure of their existence forced the Navy to admit it possessed such information.  “What was ultimately shown to us [in 1967] answered none of the major questions and the Navy still maintained publicly that no files existed,” Goerner told…

William Bradford Huie Becomes Frantic in 1977, Fears His Lies Would be Exposed by the HSCA

Huie's fears that his multiple lies within his 1970 book He Slew the Dreamer might be exposed were probably ignited by this single abstruse — nearly buried between two other breaking stories — "headline" in The New York Times on February 6, 1976. Yet its importance about what it might portend for him personally was … Continue reading William Bradford Huie Becomes Frantic in 1977, Fears His Lies Would be Exposed by the HSCA
