Los Angeles - (L.I.N.E.) JFK Lancer, a historical research organization, calls for the immediate amendment of Section 6103 of the IRS Code to allow for the release of assassination records containing tax record information. These records were designated as assassination records by the Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB) but could not be opened to the public because of an exemption in the JFK Act (Public Law 102-526).

bluebul11/22/1998, Hundreds visit JFK grave on anniversary of death

Reuters News Service
ARLINGTON, Va. -- On the 35th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's assassination, hundreds of people came to Arlington National Cemetery Sunday to visit his grave. The late president's brother, Senator Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts, his wife Vickie, and Ethel Kennedy, the wife of the late Sen. Robert Kennedy arrived at the grave in midmorning to pay their respects. About 200 people stepped aside as the senator walked forward and lifted the metal chain that keeps the public from getting too close to the president's grave and the eternal flame that has burned since he was buried.

The family prayed and placed white roses and purple flowers on the graves of the president, who would have been 81 this past May, his wife, Jacqueline who died in 1994, and two of their children. The John F. Kennedys had a daughter on Aug. 23,1956, who was stillborn and a son, Patrick, who lived for only two days after his birth on Aug. 7, 1963. They also walked to the nearby grave of Senator Robert Kennedy, who was assassinated in 1968 while running for president, where they also placed flowers and prayed. Afterward, Sen. Kennedy thanked the crowd for coming and said he appreciated that so many people still remembered his brothers.

More than one thousand people had filed past President Kennedy's grave by mid-morning. Mary Hall, 62, from Baton Rouge, La., braved the cold autumn weather to pay her respects. "I'm surprised at the dedication after all these years," she said. "Everybody liked him," said Andrea Garcia, 17, from San Antonio. Some of those visiting the grave site left their own flowers and personal messages. One handwritten note read: "It broke our hearts to lose you, but (you) did not go alone. Part of us went with you the day God called you home."

bluebul11/15/1998, Nellie Connally again disputes finding in death of JFK

DALLAS (AP) -- Nellie Connally, the last surviving passenger of the car in which President Kennedy was assassinated, is reasserting her belief that the Warren Commission was wrong about one bullet striking both JFK and her husband, former Gov. John Connally. "I will fight anybody that argues with me about those three shots," she told Newsweek magazine in its Nov. 23 issue. "I do know what happened in that car. Fight me if you want to." The Warren Commission concluded in 1964 that one bullet passed through Kennedy's body and wounded Connally, and that a second bullet struck Kennedy's head, killing him. It concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone gunman. The Connallys maintained that two bullets struck the president in Dealey Plaza 35 years ago and a third hit the governor. John Connally died in 1993 at age 75. The Warren Commission concluded there also was a bullet that missed the car entirely. Some conspiracy theorists argue that if three bullets struck the men, as the Connallys insisted, and a fourth missed, then there must have been a second gunman because no one person could have fired four rounds from Oswald's bolt-action rifle so quickly.

Mrs. Connally says in Newsweek that personal notes she wrote a few weeks after the assassination reaffirm her belief of the number of shots. After coming across them a few years ago, she began reading excerpts to small groups in Houston and Dallas. Mrs. Connally wrote that after hearing the first shot, John Connally turned to his right to look back at Kennedy "and then wheeled to the left to get another look at the President. He could not, so he realized the President had been shot." Then, she wrote, John Connally "was hit himself by the second shot and said, `My God, they are going to kill us all!' " According to her notes, that was followed by the third shot that passed through Kennedy's head. She wrote: "With John in my arms and still trying to stay down ... I felt something falling all over me. ... My eyes saw bloody matter in tiny bits all over the car. Mrs. Kennedy was saying, `Jack! Jack! They have killed my husband! I have his brains in my hand.' "

bluebulAugust 21, 1998, Recent interviews conducted with many of the Secret Service agents who protected John F. Kennedy during various periods of his presidency -- including some who were in Dallas on November 22, 1963 and who were responsible for the planning of that trip -- contradict history's "official" verdict that JFK was difficult to protect and was somehow indirectly responsible for his own death by ordering the limitation of security measures that might have prevented the assassination.

bluebulJuly 22, 1998Mrs. Lincoln with JFK, Did JFK have premonition of his own death?

WASHINGTON (AP) - Two and a half years before his assassination, John F. Kennedy seemed to have had a premonition of his own death. He questioned whether God had a place for him and jotted, "I am ready" on a slip of paper his secretary found during a trans-Atlantic flight.

The paper that Kennedy's longtime personal secretary, Evelyn Lincoln, tucked into her diary was included in 60,000 pages of documents that were made public Wednesday, July 22, 1998, by the National Archives and the Assassination Records Review Board, which is charged with accumulating any documents that could shed light on the Nov. 22, 1963, assassination.

Lincoln wrote that shortly before midnight on June 5, 1961, Kennedy summoned her to his cabin on the presidential plane and asked her to clear away some papers so he could go to sleep.

"As I started to clear the table, a little slip of paper fell to the floor," she wrote. "I picked it up and in his own handwriting were these words: `I know that there is a god and I see a storm coming. If he has a place for me, I am ready." '

Lincoln found the note on the trip home from Europe after Kennedy's summit meeting with Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev in Vienna -- an unsuccessful meeting that resolved none of the outstanding Cold War problems between the two superpowers.

Lincoln, who died in 1995 in Washington, served Kennedy from the earliest days of his Senate career until his assassination.

Another diary entry in her handwriting showed that Kennedy was concerned about televising the space flight of astronaut Alan Shepard, whose death on Tuesday, July 21, 1998, came a day before the opening of the Kennedy papers.

"He is afraid of the reaction of the public in case there is a mishap in the firing (of the rocket)," she noted, four days before Shepard became the first American to fly in space.

bluebul5/18/1998 JFK records will be surrendered

Ruling upheld over Garrison documents

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- New Orleans' district attorney lost a court fight Monday, May 18, 1998, to avoid surrendering records on Jim Garrison's 1960s investigation into the assassination of President Kennedy.

Without comment, the U.S. Supreme Court let stand a ruling that requires District Attorney Harry Connick to give a federal board all documents and audio tapes regarding the unsuccessful prosecution of businessman Clay Shaw on a charge of conspiracy
in the assassination.

The prosecution was spearheaded by Garrison, who charged that Shaw talked with Lee Harvey Oswald and another man about killing Kennedy. Shaw was arrested in 1967 and acquitted two years later.

Kennedy was shot on Nov. 22, 1963, while riding in a motorcade through downtown Dallas. Oswald, the suspected Kennedy assassin, was killed outside a Dallas jail a few days later.

The records of what an appeals court called "that fruitless and now infamous prosecution" are in a file cabinet in Connick's office.

Connick said Monday that the records would be turned over, although he still believes it was not the intent of Congress for the review board to have access to state records.

"They wanted the documents that were held by federal agencies, and that was a good thing. But this is a fiction of Garrison's imagination. They didn't need to dip into state files and start opening up all of this," Connick said. "This is unnecessary federal interference."

The review board was created by Congress in 1992 to preserve and eventually release documents related to the assassination.

Connick told the panel in 1995 he would turn over the records but changed his mind after reporter Richard Angelico of WDSU-TV in New Orleans obtained transcripts of the grand jury investigation into Shaw and turned them over to the records board.

The review board refused a request from Connick to give the records back, and the district attorney went to court to avoid turning over others.

The board subpoenaed the documents from Connick in 1996. A federal judge ruled the documents must be turned over, and the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals agreed.

U.S. District Judge John Tunheim of Minnesota, chairman of the review board, said the board had been charged by Congress with gathering all existing records.

Eileen Sullivan, a board spokeswoman, said the Garrison records would become part of the public file at the National Archives after they are turned over by Connick. READ MORE ABOUT IT
