I hope everybody will take note of James DiEugenio's trip deeper and
deeper into "Kookville". As time marches on, Jim sinks further into
that kook-filled region, as illustrated HERE.
Naturally, of course, people who spout ridiculous untruths and
speculation (like DiEugenio does, year after year, on Black Op Radio)
will get the high-fives from their teammates on the kook bench. But I
find it amazing to note at how deep into la-la conspiracy-land Mr.
DiEugenio has sunk...e.g.,
1.) DiEugenio thinks Lee Harvey Oswald didn't fire a shot at President
Kennedy on 11/22/63.
2.) DiEugenio thinks Lee Harvey Oswald didn't fire a shot at Officer
J.D. Tippit on 11/22/63.
3.) DiEugenio still supports Jim Garrison's theories here in the 21st
century. (A big "LOL" is needed here.)
4.) DiEugenio thinks CLAY SHAW called Dean Andrews right after JFK's
5.) DiEugenio thinks Lee Oswald didn't carry ANY LARGE BAG to work on
6.) DiEugenio thinks Buell Wesley Frazier and Linnie Mae Randle were
7.) DiEugenio thinks Marrion Baker and Roy Truly were liars. (The
story each of those two men told about their "Lunchroom Encounter"
with Oswald is not to be believed at all, per a nut named Jim D.)
8.) DiEugenio thinks it's quite possible that there wasn't ANYBODY AT
ALL shooting at JFK from the sixth floor of the TSBD on 11/22/63.
9.) DiEugenio thinks Ruth Paine is "suspicious" and should have been
interviewed in depth by the Assassination Records Review Board in the
mid-1990s. And Jim has said he "will never forgive them" [the ARRB]
for not taking the testimony of Ruth Paine, even though (of course)
the ARRB was not created to do ANY INVESTIGATION INTO PRESIDENT
KENNEDY'S ASSASSINATION WHATSOEVER.
The ARRB was not an "investigative" committee [see ARRB Final Report;
Page xxi]. But, for some reason that I will never understand, Jeremy Gunn
(and ARRB Chairman John Tunheim too, I guess) was/were talked into
taking testimony from various medical witnesses, even though the ONLY
thing the ARRB was responsible for was overseeing the release to the
public of the various records and documents concerning JFK's assassination.
But thanks to a mega-kook named Douglas P. Horne, who joined the ARRB
staff a year or two after it was originally created, apparently the
ARRB's mandate and scope changed significantly. And I can't help but
ask (and wonder) -- Why?
"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. .... 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 Innocent"." -- DVP; February 13, 2010
