Secret Service Agent Rybka responds by shrugging his shoulders as to why he is not doing his normal duties (as he did the day before in Houston). Again, who gave Roberts the orders to remove the protection of the President. This was one of 16 violations of Secret Service Protocol on the Dallas portion of this Texas trip.
Only 13 days before Dallas, Milteer was secretly recorded by FBI informant Willie Somersett in his apartment. Milteer described the upcoming assassination in great detail, including that it could be done from an office building with a high powered rifle. He also described how the gun could be taken up in pieces and not carried in plain view of anyone. When Somersett turned this information over to the FBI, the Florida motorcades were changed on Nov. 18, 1963, however, Dallas' motorcade went on as planned.
The image on the left is a known image of Milteer. The image on the right is an enlargement of previous picture. Is this Joseph Milteer in Dallas on 11/22/63? Milteer reportedly called Somersett from Dallas and said, "I told you that Son of a Bitch would never be coming back to Florida."
This image from the Hughes Film shows the motorcade passing directly below the 6th floor window of the Texas School Book Depository Building.
J. Edgar Hoover said this film had no evidentiary value because it did not show the building from which the shots were fired.
Not only does the film show the Texas School Book Depository Building but also the 6th floor window. The problem J. Edgar Hoover had with this film/image is that the image doesn't show ANYONE in the 6th floor window with a rifle.
Moments before the first shot is fired, Secret Service Agent Driver Bill Greer has not applied the brakes. Normal procedure during gunfire is to accelerate and get out of harms way as quickly as possible. Greer was only JFK's driver for 5 weeks. JFK's previous driver, Tom Shipman, 51, died at Camp David alone of an apparent heart attack on Oct. 14, 1963. No autopsy was performed.
In this re-enactment, the Presidential Limousine is barely in view over the edge of the 6th Floor window concrete edge. The actual position of the limousine at the time of the first shot would be parallel with the large tree on the south side of Elm Street. The live oak tree could be possibly blocking the view making the limousine barely visible . An assassin in this position would either have to rest the rifle on the concrete edge or stand up to fire over the concrete edge. As we see in the Hughes Film, there is NO rifle protruding over the concrete edge. This is also the shot the Warren Commission Report concluded which caused 7 different wounds to President Kennedy and Governor Connally (Magic Bullet Theory).
Fired almost simultaneously after diversionary shot. David Morales, shooting from the South Knoll strikes JFK in throat through windshield. Roscoe White on the grassy knoll misses. Because JFK is reacting to the shot through the windshield, Roscoe White, as he stated in his diary, believes he has struck the frontal shot to JFK. Glass fragments, removed by mortician Tom Robinson of Gawler's Funeral Home in DC while preparing the remains for burial after the autopsy, prove conclusively the frontal shot had to penetrate the windshield. Roscoe White's angle would not have gone through the windshield proving the frontal shot (as Doctors from Parkland Hospital stated) from the South Knoll underpass.
This image was taken at the moment of the first shot to hit JFK. Several images are contained within this one image. There is a person who looks like Lee Harvey Oswald standing in the doorway of the Texas School Book Depository Building. Lyndon Johnson appears to have already 'ducked' behind the seat in front of him while his Secret Service follow up car already has the door open and one Agent is holding a signal outside of the rear window.
This person in the doorway looks similar to Lee Harvey Oswald. Lee Harvey Oswald when questioned by Dallas Police admitted during the motorcade he was 'out front with Bill Shelley.' If this image is Oswald, it would explain why he was able to walk inside and up a flight of stairs to be found in the 2nd floor lunchroom by Officer Baker and Roy Truly in less than 90 seconds after the shooting.
From the Altgens 6 image, this is an enlargement of LBJ's car. It is debatable whether LBJ is in view. Robert Groden says he is, yet LBJ's Secret Service Agent, Rufus Youngblood, said LBJ was already on the floorboard of the car at the time of the first shot.
This is not up for debate. The LBJ Secret Service follow up car had the door open on Main Street and in this image, someone from the rear is holding something outside of the rear window. I believe this was a signal to LBJ that the shots were about to be fired. Perhaps this is why LBJ argued with JFK the morning of the assassination to re-arrange seating in the motorcade. To move Gov. Connally to LBJ's car. LBJ didn't want his best friend to be in the 'line of fire.'
This photo (during a re-enactment) was taken from the South Knoll. This shot penetrated through the windshield, striking JFK in the neck. This would not have been possible if JFK's personal physician, Admiral Burkley, was seated in his customary spot between the two front seat Secret Service Agents. Burkley had been moved to the rear of the motorcade, the only motorcade during JFK's Presidency, Burkley was NOT seated in the car with Kennedy.
In this re-enactment, as in the first view, the live Texas oak tree is clearly visible. During the filming of Oliver Stone's 1991 film, 'JFK' this tree was 'pulled down' (with cables) approximately 5 1/2 feet to simulate it's growth from 1963. Even in 2015 if this tree has grown another 6 1/2 feet, the Presidential Limousine is still clearly visible. The tree would NOT have blocked the view of an assassin in 1963. However, according to the Warren Commission Report, this is the shot which completely missed the Limousine and either the bullet or concrete fragments injured eyewitness James Tague.
In this re-enactment, this is the view an assassin in the 6th floor 'sniper's perch' would have had at Zapruder Frame #313. This was the fatal head shot according to the Warren Commission Report. JFK's reaction was his head and body moved violently back and to the left...inconsistent with a shot fired from this angle. Also, the distance of this shot is 265'. How could an assassin be this accurate on the final shot and not the first shot in which they could have had their target lined up in the scope from Houston Street as the car made the 120 degree turn below the window?
Loran Hall, firing from the Dal-Tex Building strikes JFK in the back pushing him slightly forward and to his left. Jean Rene Soutre firing from the south corner of the county records building missing JFK but striking Governor Connally causing all of his wounds. This rooftop position was deteremined by examining the clothing of Gov. Connally and the angle the shot had to come from. This is also verified in Gary Shaw's book, 'Cover-Up'.
Fired by Malcolm Wallace in the TSBD sniper's perch, this bullet strikes the frame between the visors. Frank Sturgis, from the north side of the county records building misses the car entirely and strikes man hole concrete area on south side of Elm.
After striking the concrete area either bullet or concrete fragments continue on to strike eyewitness James Tague in the cheek causing a superficial wound, yet altering the findings of the Warren Report.
Firing from the Badge Man area on the grassy knoll by Lucien Sarti this bullet strikes the concrete retaining wall. Charles Nicoletti firing from the southwest corner window of the TSBD barely strikes JFK in the right temple area milliseconds before Roscoe White fires the fatal head shot 8-10' west from the corner of the picket fence.
Moments after the shots were fired, a person who looks like Jack Ruby is photographed in front of the Texas School Book Depository Building. Ruby claimed he was at the Dallas Morning News at this time.
As the three tramps are paraded in front of the Texas School Book Depository Building to be questioned at the county jail, an image in the front doorway appears to be Oswald talking to a Police Officer.
Within seconds of receiving the Oath as 36th President, Lyndon B. Johnson turns as Congressman Albert Thomas (D-TX) 'winks' to the new President, who appears to be either smiling or winking back (lines around eyes and mouth).
CE-399, The Magic Bullet was found on a stretcher at Parkland Hospital while the President and Governor were being treated. This bullet miracuously caused 7 different wounds to Kennedy and Connally yet did not have any blood or tissue on it when it was found.
Dr. Earl Rose performed the autopsy of Officer J.D. Tippit. J.D. Tippit had two different types of .38 caliber bullets in his body. Two were from an automatic weapon and two from a revolver. The shells are not interchangeable. Whoever shot Officer Tippit emptied the shell casings at the crime scene for evidence. Officer J.M. Poe marked his initials on the shell casings for evidence. If the shooter of Tippit didn't empty the shell casings at the scene, they could have emptied them in any public trashcan and therefore the bullet casings would never be able to be tied to Oswald's revolver. These shell casings left at the scene I believe were planted to help frame Oswald. When the Warren Commission showed Officer Poe the shell casings during their investigation, his initials were NOT on the casings.
This is Roscoe White's Marine Honorable Discharge Certificate. What is most important is his Marine ID #1666106. This number would be found on the following 3 decoded cables from Navy Intelligence describing the assassination in great detail. It is also interesting to note that Lee Oswald's Marine ID #1653230. Roscoe White & Lee Oswald took the same ship, the USS Bexar from San Diego to the Philippines and Mainland China together. Roscoe White and Lee Oswald served for over 6 months together in the same capacity in the U.S. Marines (and later Naval Intelligence) while at Atsugi, Japan.
These are the three original Roscoe White decoded cables found by his son, Ricky White in 1982. These were given to the JFK Assassination Information Center in 1989. After having the plastic (see top right corner of image) and paper analyzed, it was determined this was 1962-63 paper/plastic stock. The cables are barely recognizable today (this image is from April 2015) but the copies which were made in 1989 are shown on the next few images of the photo gallery. Images of original cables and photographic copies are compliments of J. Gary Shaw and the Baylor University Library.
1st Cable from Navy Intelligence, Sept. 1963 to Roscoe White (Code Name Mandarin, Marine ID# 1666106) informing ONI Agent Roscoe White to be assigned as a uniformed Police Officer with the DPD. Roscoe White went to work for the DPD in October 1963 (approximately the same time as Lee Harvey Oswald started at the TSBD). Who with Navy Intelligence had the authority to tell Capt. Fritz or Chief Jesse Curry to hire Agent White and for what purpose?
2nd Cable from Navy Intelligence, Oct. 1963 to Roscoe White describing in great detail that Fidel Castro's assassination attempt have been canceled, (Foreign Affairs Assignment has been canceled) however, John F. Kennedy's is scheduled (the next assignment is to eliminate a National Security Threat to World Wide Peace) in either Houston, Austin or Dallas. If Roscoe White was placed in Dallas Police Department for the assassination of JFK, you can be assured the Navy Intelligence had similar arrangements in Houston & Austin in case the assassination happened in either of these two cities.
This December 1963 cable is telling Roscoe White to stay with the DPD (post assassination) to observe eyewitnesses who may have seen or heard something different than the official story the DPD and later Warren Commission was summarizing. This cable specifically states, 'the men' will be in to cover all misleading evidence soon. Would this be the Dallas Police, Secret Service, FBI, CIA, the Warren Report or a combination of all.
This book was used by Roscoe from November 1963 until his death September 24, 1971. In this book, Roscoe would tape newspaper clippings of events in the paper and write (sometimes in shorthand) comments regarding image. When a person in the newspaper clipping died (or was killed), Roscoe would simply make a pencil mark through their image in his book indicating their death (whether by himself or others).
This image is in Roscoe White's Witness Elimination Program Book. The image is distorted (from pages sticking together) with small tears, but the importance of the image is not what is visible upon first glance. The importance is what Roscoe wrote at the bottom of the image. (See next image)
At the bottom of the page, Roscoe has written in his own handwriting (difficult to see after 52 years).... Set up Job. Ruby was Brave. Roscoe is indicating that Jack Ruby was set up (probably by Sam Giancanna/Mafia) to eliminate Oswald against his wishes. Ruby, with ties to the Mafia, knew immediately after Oswald was captured his role in eliminating his friend, Lee Oswald, so Oswald would not give details of the assassination to the DPD or upcoming trial.
C.E. "Nicky" Nichols, Jr. was the Bell Captain at The Adolphus Hotel which was located directly across the street from Jack Ruby's Carousel Club. Nicky would always describe Jack Ruby as usually in a care-free, smiling, good attitude when he would come into the Hotel to distribute his business cards trying to get guests of the Hotel to come visit his Night Club across the street.
When Jack Ruby would come into The Adolphus Hotel, besides the guests, he would also try to give Nicky a business card to which Nicky would reply, "Now, Jack, you know my wife Evelyn would skin me alive if she caught me in your club" to which Jack would always take the card back and smile at Nicky.
On Nov. 21, 1963, Jack Ruby after offering his card to Nicky (who refused again) took the card back from Nicky, grabbed his pen out of his pocket and signed the back, 'Admit Party Except Saturday, Jack Ruby.' He handed the card and pen back to Nicky and said, "GodDamn it Nicky, keep this card, it will be worth something one day." Compliments of C.E. Nichols Grandson, Chris Gallop.
Secret Service agents (with Jackie behind them) escort the bronze casket up the stairs to place on Air Force One. The handles on the right side of the casket were broken off as it was to wide to fit through the door. Also, a significant dent was made on the top of the casket foot area trying to get it into the door. Removing the body of JFK from Parkland was illegal since it was not a federal crime in 1963 to assassinate the President.
This photo shows where a portion of the bulkhead was cut (since replaced in this photo) so that the casket could be placed in the main compartment. Also, the last two rows of seats on the left side were removed so the casket could be placed there.
In May 1999, SAM 26000 was officially retired to Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton Ohio. When interviewing Capt. Swindal, I asked him how a crew member would manually lower the landing gear if necessary. Capt. Swindal took me to a trap door in the Boeing 707 located in the floor. From here you could unlock trap door and enter the cargo area of the plane. This trap door was 4'-5' from where JFK's casket was placed for the trip back to D.C.
Hubert Clark, who was on the JFK Honor Guard, was sent to Andrews Air Force Base to retrieve the body of JFK and take to the autopsy at Bethesda. Clark stated the Honor Guard was pushed out of the way as Secret Service wanted to load the body into the grey Navy ambulance. Clark also stated at one point, the casket was almost dropped. 52 years later, Clark would realize the body of JFK was not in the ornamental bronze casket the Honor Guard 'shadowed' to Bethesda.
LBJ specifically requested the plane to not take off until Jackie Kennedy, Evelyn Lincoln & Dave Powers came to the forward cabin for the swearing in ceremony. JFK's body was removed from the bronze casket by agents (probably Secret Service) while LBJ was being sworn in and placed in a body bag. Then JFK's body was placed inside the grey shipping casket in the cargo area of the plane for possible manipulation of the head wounds for the flight back to Andrews Air Force Base by Restland mortician, John Liggett.
After Jackie & Robert Kennedy got into the grey Navy ambulance, LBJ walked to the rear of the plane to give his first speech as President. While all the lights were on LBJ on the left side of the plane, the grey shipping casket with JFK's body was being off-loaded on the right side of the plane (where cargo doors are located). This shipping casket was then flown to Bethesda by helicopter as technician Paul O'Connor stated in 'The Men Who Killed Kennedy' documentary series.
A grey shipping casket similar to this was how JFK's body arrived to Bethesda according to Officer of the Day, Dennis David. David said the driver and front seat passenger were wearing operating smocks & white gowns. There were 4-5 men in blue suits (David assumed they were Federal Agents) who exited the rear of the hearse to assist the 7-8 men David had assigned to carry the casket into the morgue. David officially logged the grey shipping casket into the morgue at 6:40 pm.
