I had forgotten that it was Ron Rosenbaum who wrote the story or book titled, Oswald's Ghost, one of the over one thousand books I have read on the Kennedy assassination, or having tangential information thereof. Rosenbaum's book was in the easily forgettable pile-of-drivel category. I just recalled this when Rosenbaum was being interviewed by fellow fake newsy, Brooke Gladstone, on NPR's On the Media show recently. He followed the passages from the disinformation manual Edward Bernays wrote for the CIA back in the 1950s: suggest and infer the opposite of what occurred, lies, by refraining from explaining the factual details! Plus, keep repeating it. He mentions the Zapruder film, suggesting that was a cause of so-called // conspiracy theorists and conspiracy theories \\ without stating the most obvious and clear truth: when anyone can view President Kennedy's head snapping backwards - - from a frontal kill shot, as opposed to forwards which Dan Rather repeatedly lied about - - and see the blood spray and chunk of JFK's brain go backwards from his skull, it is obvious the direction of one of the shots.
Rosenbaum also claimed the Church Committee // proved \\ that President Kennedy was behind assassination attempts on Castro - - which began under Eisenhower - - but neglecting to mention, of course, that the sole source of this assertion was the CIA's founder and creator of their assassination section, William Harvey, who was the CIA chief of station in Italy on October/November 1963 when Pfc. Eugene B. Dinkin, an Army crypto operator and analyst stationed at an NSA site in France, intercepted cables between the CIA station in Italy and the outlawed rightwing fascist paramilitary group, the OAS, made up of French Army and Foreign Legion deserters. Dinkin decrypted the cables and read that an assassination was planned on JFK in Dallas, TX, sometime between Nov. 22 to Nov. 28 [the exact date not having yet been scheduled]. When JFK found out about this section, which was training at the time in Louisiana at the land leased from a gambler friend of Jack Ruby's to the CIA, President Kennedy dispatched his brother, the Attorney General Bobby Kennedy and US Marshals to shut it down, which they did!
So, so many facts left unsaid, but nothing accurate nor truthful was conveyed by either disinformation specialist, Ron Rosenbaum, or his fellow disinformation specialist, Brook Gladstone.
BTW, WGBH Educational Foundation, responsible for this, is 93% financed and controlled by the Koch brothers. Don't believe me, check the SEC filings. [At least they interviewed Mark Lane, but Dan Rather - - the lousiest sorriest excuse for a reporter who never broke a story in his pathetic life.]
