Although there is no formal conference planned for COPA this year, a few of us are gathering at the grassy knoll to honor the moment of silence for John Kennedy, as honored for so many years by Penn Jones and then John Judge himself.
I will be bringing up the banners if people want to display them.
The Assassination Archives and Research Center (AARC) is pleased to host a conference commemorating the 50th anniversary of the release of the Warren Commission Report on the Assassination of President Kennedy.
"The Warren Report and the JFK Assassination: A Half Century of Significant Disclosures"
Washington, DC - Forty-four prominent authors, medical doctors, academics, lawyers and other research experts convene from Sept. 26 to 28, 2014, to reveal recent findings differing from the Warren Commission's 1964 report ascribing President Kennedy's murder to a sole assassin.
On the unique, historic occasion of the Warren report's 50th anniversary, experts and surviving witnesses will examine evidence showing the commission was wrong about its core finding: that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in killing the president with three shots from behind. Polls for decades have shown that most Americans - sometimes more than 70 percent - disbelieve the commission, which was chaired by the late Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren.
"Because of new revelations few serious scholars any longer believe the Warren Report's core finding on Oswald as a lone killer acting alone," said Assassination Archives and Research Center (AARC) President James Lesar. His non-profit group has organized what he calls, "what may be one of the most important JFK assassination conferences in history."
The three-day conference, "The Warren Report and the JFK Assassination: A Half Century of Significant Disclosures," will be at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Bethesda, MD. It begins Sept. 26, with an evening reception Sept. 25.
Among those making unprecedented or rare speaking appearances will be: Alpha 66 founder Antonio Veciana, leader of the CIA-backed Cuban exile group that tried to kill Cuban leader Fidel Castro; and Prof. Ernst Titovets, who was Oswald's best friend in the Soviet Union.
Other speakers include: Prof. Robert Blakey, Ed Lopez and Dan Hardway of the House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA), which concluded that JFK fell victim to a conspiracy. Among others: Dr. Gary Aguilar, Russ Baker, Rex Bradford, Dr. Walt Brown, Jim DiEugenio, Dr. David Kaiser, Dr. Peter Kornbluh, Robert Groden, Prof. Joan Mellen, Jeff Morley, Dr. John Newman, Lisa Pease, Jerry Policoff, Dr. Randolph Robertson, Prof. Peter Dale Scott, Dr. Wayne Smith, Pat Speer, Anthony Summers, David Talbot,
Dr. Donald Thomas, Dr. Cyril H. Wecht, Lamar Waldron, and Dr. David Wrone.
Other highlights include a banquet Sept. 27. Also, panel discussions will focus on why virtually all mainstream newspaper and broadcast networks last year retained on the 50th anniversary of the killing their themes promulgated from the killing's first day: Oswald did it, and acted alone.
Another special event will be a dramatic re-enactment by Brian Connors, John Heard and other well-known actors TBA of a pivotal Warren Commission meeting. Recently declassified documents show that former CIA Director Allen Dulles took a lead role on the commission. As background, JFK had vowed to cut CIA funding. Also, JFK forced out top leadership of the CIA in 1961, including Dulles and his deputy, General Charles Cabell, brother of the mayor of Dallas.
The conference will focus on what we have learned of major significance from the additional 4 million pages released since the issuance of the Warren Report on September 26, 1964. Particular attention will be paid to disclosures made under the JFK Records Act and on the need to secure the release of the Act documents that remain withheld a half century later.
JFK Lancer and The Last Hurrah book store offered relevant materials for sale at the conference.
