JFK ASSASSINATION ARGUMENTS
IN THIS REVIEW FOR THE DISCOVERY CHANNEL
DVD "JFK: 3 SHOTS THAT CHANGED AMERICA",
PAUL MAVIS SAID:
I particularly like the look of abject terror in Curry's eyes—after his ass has been put in line with the "official story"—when he reports that the FBI, in less than 24 hours, has miraculously traced all of Oswald's gun receipts and paperwork back to Chicago...almost as if they had all that info handy on a man they supposedly weren't aware of until that very day.
DAVID VON PEIN SAID:
Paul Mavis is a very good reviewer. I admire many of his reviews for TV-on-DVD products. But his comments above about Dallas Police Chief Jesse Curry and the FBI are not accurate (or fair) at all.
The FBI, while trying to track down the source of Mannlicher-Carcano #C2766, got lucky on Day 1 (November 22) when the owner of one of the gun shops they visited in Dallas, said that he got his Italian military rifles from Crescent Firearms in New York City.
This fact, naturally, led the FBI to Crescent. And Crescent then provided the info about selling Rifle C2766 to Klein's Sporting Goods in Chicago. Then it was up to Klein's to find the specific sales order for C2766 amongst their wealth of microfilm records.
Searching through records in Chicago for six hours, from 10:00 PM until about 4:00 AM [Warren Report, Page 118], they came up with the "Hidell" order form and the document that would eventually become Waldman Exhibit No. 7 during the Warren Commission hearings, showing that Rifle C2766 had been sold and shipped to A. Hidell in Dallas, Texas.
There was nothing mysterious or unusual at all about this chain of events regarding the paperwork for C2766. Just hard work by regular people who were helping out the FBI in its initial investigation.
And Chief Curry, who was constantly giving mini press conferences in the hallways of the Dallas Police Department on Saturday, November 23rd [see the video below], let the press know right away that his department (the DPD) had just received word from the FBI that "the order letter" for the rifle had been traced to "our suspect--Oswald".
But, I guess some conspiracy theorists think that Klein's (and the FBI) found that paperwork too quickly. I guess it smells too much like a pre-arranged "plot" to them.
Well, what's new about that? Everything smells like a plot if you're a JFK conspiracy theorist. It's pretty much always been that way. But I'm disappointed to see that Mr. Mavis thinks like a traditional conspiracist too -- at least sometimes. I thought he'd have more (common) sense.
