The Hollywood producer talks about his new JFK podcast, how Hollywood thinks about JFK, and why November 22 still matters.
RFK, Jr just named the CIA personnel he thinks were behind the assassination: David Atlee Phillips, Bill Harvey, E. Howard Hunt, Dulles, and Angleton. He says that there is enough evidence out now to convince a jury that they were guilty.
He also says he knows who the three shooters were, although he doesn't name them. He says they served in Battista's army, and one of them died in prison in Cuba (hmm, did Castro extract a confession?). He names Douglas's JFK and the Unspeakable as the best book on the assassination.
Seven minute clip:
If the media or his political rivals try to smear him on this subject, their attempts will backfire. They will only draw more people to the cause.
Great interview. When I first saw advertisement of the Who Killed JFK with Rob and Soledad, I didn't know what it could be. I figured it would be a very middle of the road thing. I was very delighted when I listened to the first episode and realized they were using JFK and the Unspeakable's narrative framing and that it was a real genuine look at the case. This interview has made me more excited because now I know Rob's real feeling on the subject. It seems like they have some interesting novel theories as well.
I am very glad Soledad is on the show because I think people really trust her journalism and I think with folks like her it let's serious people explore a new idea without feeling like they should be wearing a tinfoil hat. This 60th anniversary is shaping up to be a watershed moment and I'm so glad that this podcast will get Jefferson's work and the work of many more dogged research in front of the public. Very proud to be a JFK Facts subscriber.
That’s a great interview, Jeff & Larry! Mr. Reiner should be commended for giving you access & for bringing the ‘Who Killed JFK?’ series to fruition.
I have been very impressed with the first 2 ‘Who Killed JFK?’ podcasts — including content, format & production values. I hope that the series is heard far & wide — & that our Nation is finally forced to confront the truth about the horrible conspiracy that was perpetrated in November 1963 — & covered up for the last 60 years…
One question....would Archie be proud of Meathead today?
That was simply brilliant. Insightful, and very informative. Can’t wait to listen to all the podcasts as they are released.
Of all the books I’ve read on the Kennedy Assassination, JFK and the Unspeakable took this story, and moment in history to another level.
My hope and guarded expectation is the truth will win in the end.
This was an excellent interview. I was surprised by Rob’s wealth of knowledge just speaking off the top of his head. Jefferson and Larry thanks so much for the work you do to bring truth to light. Side note I was 12 on 11/22/63 and have much the same feelings as Rob and have been studying the Assassination for over 40 years. Heading out tomorrow for the Project JFK Conference in Dallas.
The first installment is really good. We're looking forward to more.
Rob Reiner speaks of a shot coming from "the south knoll." There is no "south knoll." Elm Street runs from east to west. JFK's Lincoln was headed west. To the south would be the northern portion of the Dealey Plaza lawn.
Reiner also insists the "kill shot" was fired from the "south knoll," because a shot from the stockade fence would not have caused the large wound in the occiput. Well, Rob, where is the ENTRY wound for such a shot? JFK's face was undamaged in the shooting. There was an entry wound in the right tempero-parietal area, which Dr. Humes incised before the autopsy, according to Dr. Boswell.
That wound is consistent with a tangential shot from the stockade fence, which is also consistent with the testimony of the two railroad supervisors located above the knoll and the Barger reconstruction of the DPD audiotape from the scene.
And, Rob, the Carcano rifle recovered from the 6th floor was matched to CE#399 (the magic bullet) and to the two large bullet fragments found in the Lincoln by FBI ballistics. It is beyond any reasonable doubt that at least two bullets were fired from the rifle found on the 6th floor.
Like the title says, let's stick to the "JFK Facts."
Jefferson I seem not to be able search and find JFK Facts in Apple Podcasts. Do you know if there’s a reason? Thank you
