DVP vs. DiEUGENIO
This post is being written to provide some additional laughs at the
expense of conspiracy kook James DiEugenio. I felt compelled to write
this article after hearing some more of DiEugenio's absurd comments
on the Black Op Radio program of February 11, 2010.
As incredible as it seems, DiEugenio actually said this:
"I'm not even sure they [the real killers of JFK, not Lee Harvey Oswald, naturally] were on the sixth floor [of the Book Depository]. I mean, they might have been. But what's the definitive evidence that the hit team was on the sixth floor? .... If they WERE on the sixth floor, they could have been at the other [west] end. .... And I've always suspected there was a sniper in the Dal-Tex Building." -- James
Allow me to repeat these words again, just so the idiocy of them can
sink in a little deeper (and, after all, a quote this ridiculous and
ludicrous deserves an instant replay anyway):
"I'M NOT EVEN SURE THEY WERE ON THE SIXTH FLOOR. .... WHAT'S THE DEFINITIVE EVIDENCE THAT THE HIT TEAM WAS ON THE SIXTH FLOOR?" -- Jim DiEugenio; February 11th, 2010
So, once again, a conspiracy theorist (DiEugenio) has decided to turn
white into black and day into night and reality into fantasy by
TOTALLY IGNORING THE EVIDENCE IN THE JFK CASE.
DiEugenio has decided to completely ignore the mountain of physical
evidence and eyewitness testimony that exists in this case that
conclusively PROVES beyond any and all doubt that President Kennedy's
assassin was shooting from the SIXTH FLOOR of the Texas School Book
Depository Building on November 22, 1963.
And DiEugenio, without a speck of evidence or proof of any kind, has
decided to place a gunman in a building other than the Book Depository --
the Dal-Tex Building.
DiEugenio undoubtedly knows (or he should know) that he has dug a very
large hole for himself by attempting to remove the gunman from the
sixth floor of the TSBD. Because by attempting to do that, DiEugenio
has no choice but to call several witnesses liars (or boobs), and he
has to pretend that all of the physical evidence that was found on the
sixth floor is tainted or planted evidence (e.g., Oswald's rifle, the
three bullet shells found in the Sniper's Nest, and the paper bag with
Oswald's prints on it).
And, according to DiEugenio, the witnesses who were all wrong (or were
liars) when it came to seeing a rifle protruding from the southeast corner
window on the SIXTH FLOOR of the Depository at the exact time when
President Kennedy was being murdered by rifle bullets include the
following people -- Howard Brennan, Mal Couch, Amos Euins,
Robert Jackson, and James Worrell.*
* = Worrell's Warren Commission testimony isn't quite as definitive as
the other witnesses regarding the precise floor where the rifle was
located, but that's understandable considering where Worrell was
standing when he saw the rifle sticking out of an upper-story window.
But Worrell did narrow it down to the fifth or sixth floor:
"I am not too sure, but I told the FBI it [the rifle] was either in the fifth or the sixth floor on the far corner, on the east side." -- James R. Worrell, Jr.; 1964 WC Testimony
So, it couldn't be any more obvious that SOMEBODY was firing a rifle out
of the southeast corner window on the sixth floor of the TSBD during the
assassination. But, somehow, Jim DiEugenio seems to have doubts about
whether ANYBODY AT ALL was really shooting from the sixth floor!
Jim, you're unbelievable.
Here's another gem from Jim (which forces DiEugenio to ignore more
witness statements and testimony):
"There's two elevators in that building [the TSBD]...and that could have been one way that they [JFK's real killers, not Oswald, naturally, per DiEugenio] did get away." -- James DiEugenio
The above comment by Jim D. forces him to call both Roy Truly and
Officer Marrion Baker liars, because both of those men testified that
the two freight elevators (which are the "two elevators" that DiEugenio
had to be referring to in the above quote) were stuck on an upper floor
of the building (probably the fifth floor) when they attempted to use
those elevators within approximately one minute of the shots being
fired in Dealey Plaza.
Or perhaps DiEugenio wants to theorize that the "real killers" (none
of which Jim thinks was Lee H. Oswald, of course) were somehow able
to escape via the freight elevators down to the first floor, with both of
those elevators then returning to the upper floors of the building (and
getting stuck there)....all within ONE MINUTE of the assassination.
I guess it must be satisfying to be a conspiracy theorist like James
DiEugenio--you can simply MAKE UP all kinds of unprovable garbage,
such as placing unseen gunmen in various buildings around Dealey Plaza
and moving the KNOWN GUNMAN from the east side of the Depository's
sixth floor to any other location you'd care to choose.
And after twisting and distorting the evidence so that it can't be
recognized anymore, the best part is --- YOU'LL GET PATTED ON THE
BACK BY YOUR FELLOW CONSPIRACY KOOKS FOR DOING IT!
Nice hobby, huh?
In reality, of course, it's thoroughly despicable and outrageous
behavior. But try to tell that to a conspiracy theorist who thrives on
imaginative tales and baseless suspicions. Try to tell that to Jim
DiEugenio. What you'll likely get in return is a goofy giggle and
another round of the kooky game known as "Let's Pretend Oswald Was
