Ford told FBI about doubts on JFK murder

— Former President Ford secretly advised the FBI that two of his fellow members on the Warren Commission doubted the FBI's conclusion that John F. Kennedy was shot from the sixth floor of the Texas Book Depository in Dallas, according to newly released records from Ford's FBI files.

Ford, still a congressman at the time, also told a senior FBI official about internal panel disputes over hiring staff, Chief Justice Earl Warren's timetable for completing the final report on the assassination and what panel members said about the FBI.

In turn, Assistant FBI Director Cartha "Deke" DeLoach confidentially advised Ford of FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover's position on panel disputes; discussed where leaks were coming from; and, with Hoover's personal approval, loaned him a bureau briefcase with a lock so he could securely take the FBI report on the 1963 assassination with him on a ski trip.

The new details were included in 500 pages of the FBI's large file on Ford, released in part this past week in response to requests under the Freedom of Information Act that The Associated Press and others made on the day Ford died in December 2006. The FBI intends to release additional documents about Ford in several batches, all with parts censored for law enforcement and privacy reasons.

Aren't the conspiracy theorists nuts kinda busy with GWB to re-visit the whole grassy knoll/depository/shooter(s)/JFK thing?We have a president to prove crimes committed, indict, convict, try and execute; is the word on the street. Isn't that a bit more pressing?

Read "I Heard You Paint Houses," a book by Charles Brandt,as told by a man named Frank Sheeran who was a high levelfunctionary in the Teamsters, close associate of Jimmy Hoffa, and a confidant of Russell Buffalino, Mafia Don of Buffalo, NY.Sheeran claims to have killed his mentor, Hoffa, and his story fits all that is known about the case. He also claims that Kennedy's killing was in retaliation for Bobby Kennedy's attack on organized crime and Hoffa. He delivered guns to an intermediary who was to deliver the guns to Marcello.This is a very good read and has the ring of truth throughout the book.
