The CIA Man who considered using Oswald

The CIA Man who considered using Oswald

The pseudonym Thomas B. Casasin belongs to a largely unknown Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) officer. His name appeared in a memo researchers for years have discussed that supports that at least one Agency employee considered using Lee Harvey Oswald for the acquisition of foreign intelligence. While this does not definitively connect Oswald to the CIA, it does offer that possibility was quite real. While the mythical secret agent Oswald a few offer is improbable, we do have verifiable evidence dispelling past claims that Oswald would never be considered for official use.i  However, there is more to the story of Casasin than just the prior versions of this notable memo...

A Fake Card-Carrying Member

A Fake Card-Carrying Member

Discussions about Lee Harvey Oswald often venture to speculation when seeking to provide a feasible motive for Oswald's purported actions. With scant time to prepare, without verifiable practice, some deem his alleged associations can explain what officials failed to repeatedly. Often the Fair Play for Cuba Committee (FPCC), an organization in the United States that promoted the interests Fidel Castro and by extension his Communist regime is attributed some blame. Others assert Oswald was a loyal and active member serving the Communist or Socialist factions within the group.  This claim is followed by allegations that Oswald was a lone gunman or a creature of Cuban or Soviet intelligence. However, the FPCC was a loosely organized group that never directed Oswald to do anything...

Common Bias, Theories, and one critics "truth"

Common Bias, Theories, and one critics "truth"

A rebuttal of "The Kennedy Assassination, Common Sense, facts, and the truth!" by Francois Carlier

When approaching the case of President Kennedy's assassination and the alleged conspiracy that followed, some are not content to rely on the original evidence and the entire record. In the debate between conspiracy advocates and critics, some display only the bias and evidence that supports their chosen side. Instead of just seeking all the facts, some from each group have clearly predetermined the result without full consideration. Belief has seeped into the debate for some and their beliefs can become intractable when enough time has passed...

When critics use opinions to prove facts they may create Misinformation

When critics use opinions to prove facts they may create Misinformation

A rebuttal of "Facts and Fiction in the Kennedy Assassination" by Massimo Polidoro and the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry 

"However, cases are often made more difficult to solve when facts get confused with imagined realities and unfounded conclusions.  Eyewitness testimonies and self-styled experts, even in good faith, can alter details and hid important clues that-if untouched-could lead to radically different conclusions." (Massimo Polidoro) 
After a reasonable introduction paragraph, what follows is a ham-handed swipe at all sources Polidoro deems unverified due to the implications many present. He offers no actual evidence or repeated documented instances of these allegations, but states it as if the reader should give it regard. Notice that he does not address the many official flaws and clear acts of deception in the case; he instead blames inconsistencies on all the non-officials involved...
