Month In Review -- September --
1965 -- In a newspaper column item regarding the assassination, syndicated columnist Dorothy Kilgallen writes: “This story isn’t going to die as long as there’s a real reporter alive -- and there are a lot of them.”

HIGHLIGHTED POST: -- Statements That Sink The Warren Commission's Conclusions #441 --
STSTWCsC Board -- What happened to the Ralph Simpson films? Why were these key films either lost or not viewed by the Warren Commission during their "investigation?" He used a wide-angle lens that caputered the Texas School Book Depository at the time of the assassination too.
HIGHLIGHTED POST: The Statements That Sink The WC's Conclusions -- #442 --
The STSTWCsC Board -- If the Single Bullet Theory occurred as claimed, why was there all this puzzlement over how it happened? Does this make sense? If it actually occurred there shouldn't have been any confusion, right?

"They (FBI) haven't run out all the leads , but they are concluding Oswald was the assassin....that there can't be a conspiracy. Now that's not normal...Why are they so eager to make both of these conclusions?" -- Warren Commission Chief Counsel J. Lee Rankin

Who's Who In The JFK Assassination
This area will look at various people and groups associated with the assassination. --
Eugene Hale Brading/Jim Braden -- One man was arrested on November 22, 1963, shortly after the shots died down who had a very suspicious background, while at the same time having some very good connections. His name was Jim Braden, an alias of course, but this was not known or ignored by the Dallas Police Department (DPD). His real name was Eugene Hale Brading and he had alleged ties to the mob in Southern California, the word alleged is necessary, but does not refute this claim as he had 35 arrests on his record but was still walking free. He had to have the right connections for this to happen.
He was in Dallas for "oil business" meetings according to him. His parole record mentioned a meeting with H.L. Hunt. A witness -- Hunt Chief of Security Paul Rothermal -- placed Brading and three friends at the offices of Lamar Hunt the afternoon before the assassination. Brading's presence in Hunt's office will be confirmed in a FBI report.
Coincidentally, Jack Ruby accompanied a young woman to the Hunt office that same afternoon. And on the twenty-first, (the night before the assassination) Brading checked into the Cabana hotel in Dallas, where Jack Ruby just happened to visit sometime around midnight that same evening.
Who was the young woman? According to Hunt's former Chief Aide, John Currington, Marina Oswald met with Hunt two days before the shooting, could she have been this young woman? Supposedly it was a young lady looking for employment, but we don't know for sure.
On November 23, Hunt asked his chief aide to see what kind of security the police had for Lee Harvey Oswald (LHO). The aide reported that LHO had very little protection and that security was very lax at police headquarters where LHO was being kept. Hunt flew to Washington, D.C., shortly after receiving this report. LHO was killed on November 24. Draw your own conclusions, but remember the "Mr. Hunt" note from LHO. The LN camp wants everyone to think this is a fake, but was it? Documents declassified in 1983 revealed that the FBI apparently believed the note was addressed to H. L. Hunt's ultra-conservative millionaire son, Nelson Hunt.
Back to Brading, he was in the Dal-Tex building at the time of the shooting and drew the attention of the elevator operator as being the only unknown man he sees that day. Feeling the man doesn't belong in the building the operator seeks out a policeman, who detains the suspicious man, bringing him to the Sheriff's office for questioning. They hold him for nearly three hours, he tells them his name is Jim Braden, and that he is in Dallas on oil business. He shows them identification, and explains he had entered the building in hopes of finding a telephone to call his mother.
Braden further asserts he entered the building only after the assassination occurred, although eyewitnesses place him in the building at the time the shots were actually fired. Eventually, the police accept his explanation and release him. Jim Braden is actually Eugene Hale Brading, an ex-con from Southern California with reputed underworld ties. If the DPD knew his actual name they would have seen he was a parolee with 35 arrests on his record!
Richard E. Sprague, who worked with the House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) investigators, said they turned up evidence to show Braden was part of the team that went into the Dal-Tex building via the freight elevator and took the backstairs to the second floor. The shooter was, according to Sprague, Emilio Santana with Braden as the radio operator.
They were part of a three team effort. They used the broom closet in the Dal-Tex building on the second floor and in the Atlgens photo a dark arm is seen protruding from this open window near the fire escape.
Further Southern California mob ties are evident in Dealey Plaza (DP) that day. At 12:33 p.m. Deputy Sheriff Roger Craig will see the police detain a Latin man whom they have seized on Elm Street. In a few minutes time Craig will see the same man driving a Rambler station wagon. The Latin man is released from police detainment by someone who *says he is a Secret Service agent.* Craig will eventually identify this "agent", from photographs, as being possibly Edgar Eugene Bradley - an ex-convict allegedly connected to the mob in Southern California. (Bradley is also in LA on the night RFK is assassinated.)
This is but one of many examples of people being detained that should have caused major red flags for the DPD if they were really interested in finding out what happened to the 35th President, but alas, they were told to back off and focus on one "lone-nut" instead.
