(PART 661)


Why else would an experienced driver [William Greer] bring the car to a virtual standstill?


Try considering this for a moment -- Greer hears gunshots. He's confused. Like a lot of witnesses, he can't really tell where exactly the shots are coming from. Maybe, he thinks (possibly), they came from that overpass he's heading straight toward. Would it be a good idea to drive STRAIGHT INTO MORE GUNFIRE?

It's possible that William Greer had the above thoughts swirling around in his head during those confused moments when gunfire rang out in Dealey Plaza.

Yes, the Secret Service was lax and slow and sluggish on November 22, 1963, in Dallas. And, yes, they did a lousy job (ultimately) of protecting the man they were trained to take a bullet for.

But there is NO WAY IN HELL that the U.S. Secret Service was part of any "plot" to murder the man they (by all accounts) admired and adored.

The idea that the Secret Service would WANT to place themselves in a position where each one of the agents would be ridiculed for the rest of their lives for not doing a better job in Dallas is just plain nutty.

But, evidently, the notion that the SS had John Kennedy killed (and with Agent Greer firing the head shot, to boot!) isn't too crazy a theory for author Dan Robertson, who has just come out with a new book on the case...all about how Bill Greer killed JFK.

I thought that goofy theory had long since been dismissed as pure tripe. But, in the true tradition of conspiracy authors like Joan Mellen (who decided that Jim Garrison's craziness deserved a reprise in her 2005 book "A Farewell To Justice"), Robertson thinks it's time to resurrect a theory in book form that is so stupid and so inane and so impossible that even the kookiest of CTers don't buy it anymore.

But that's another facet to being a true-blue conspiracy-loving kook -- i.e., living by the motto "Tomorrow's A New Day", which, to many rabid CTers really means: "Every Insane JFK Conspiracy Theory Becomes Fresh And New And POSSIBLE Once More With Each New Sunrise".
