Thread: Malcolm Blunt via Bart Kamp, Hosty's notes

  1. Default Malcolm Blunt via Bart Kamp, Hosty's notes

    This seems to me to be really important. As far as I can see, we now have three sources that say LHO was outside for the motorcade.

    Malcolm Blunt discovered what appear to be Hosty's notes from a first day interrogation of LHO.

    Are the other sources statements confirming Oswald said he was outside or statements from other witnesses saying they saw him outside watching the parade?

    If only the crack DPD or FBI had bothered to ask him "Who else did you see there on the steps?" or had Hosty noted the reply to that question if it was asked.

    There is a digitized copy of Darnell available for public viewing in the Reading Room at the Sixth Floor Museum. It cannot be viewed off-site, due to copyright restrictions with NBC Universal.

    Somebody should visit- pronto- and bring along a notebook and internet blowup of Darnell, to compare the PrayerMan images.

    I nominate Larry Hancock. Even better- Debra Conway.

    Somebody will eventually visit after her and be able to evaluate what she reports.

    The burden of proof is on the PrayerMan-is-Oswald proponents. Because a height analysis shows that the figure is a full head shorter than Wesley Frazier.

    And if you are unhappy with what Debra reports, then you go look at the Darnell scan.

    My own efforts obtaining access to the NBC Archives this past year were unsuccessful. I contacted, by US mail, RFK Jr, Michael Savage, Representative Walter Jones, Judge John Tunheim, Roger Stone and Ken Burns, to solicit their help in getting my foot in the door, past the red tape.

    NBC requires an established project from an accredited organization for access to their newsreel archives. I live 5 hours away and could readily make a digital scan of the original Darnell, were such access granted.

    I don't see anything substantive in Hosty's notes that you can build a firm argument on- it looks to me like Chinese whispers, happening as soon as what happened at 3:30ish got transcribed by Hosty, Fritz and Bookhout.

    Hosty writes: "He went to the 2nd floor to get coca cola to eat with lunch and returned to 1st floor to eat lunch. Then went outside to watch P parade."

    Fritz includes the Truly & Baker encounter: "claims 2nd floor coke when off came in..... to 1st floor had lunch.... out with Bill Shelley in front"

    We don't know whether Oswald's mention of Bill Shelley, who was outside, made Hosty assume that Oswald "watch P parade". We don't know that Oswald actually said that, and Hosty wasn't near the TSBD when Oswald said he went outside.

    In Bookhout's report, once Truly & Baker left, "OSWALD stated that he took this Coke down to the 1st floor and stood around and had lunch in the employee lunch room. He thereafter went outside and stood around for five or ten minutes with foreman BILL SHELLEY."

    Each law enforcement officer remembering, and mis-remembering, the exact same sequence slightly differently.

    Again, the burden of proof is on the PrayerMan-is-Oswald proponents. Get off your fanny and get a look at the digitized Darnell. You're lost in a world of Cloud CuckooLand conjecture without tangible evidence.
