The JFK Autopsy Materials: Twenty Conclusions after Nine Visits

Editor's note: This is an expanded and revised version of a presentation for "Solving the Great American Murder Mystery" Symposium, which was held at Duquesne University 20-23 November 2003. The speaker, who is the leading student of the death of JFK in the world today, has elaborated on the formal paper that he submitted on that occasion for its appearance in this journal, while preserving the sequence of figures and photographs.The formal paper appears following this informal version as an appendix.

"If you want to understand the present, study the past." - Baruch Spinoza

Over a doorway to National Archives I is this quote: "The past is prologue." Although the source is not identified, the quote is actually from The Tempest by William Shakespeare. I passed through this doorway in 1993, when I first examined the JFK autopsy materials with Cyril Wecht. The quote reminds us why history might matter.

In an April 7 article in The London Telegraph titled "The G20 Moves the World a Step Closer to a Global Currency," Ambrose Evans-Pritchard wrote:
"A single clause in Point 19 of the communiqué issued by the G20 leaders amounts to revolution in the global financial order.

"We have agreed to support a general SDR allocation which will inject $250bn (£170bn) into the world economy and increase global liquidity,' it said. SDRs are Special Drawing Rights, a synthetic paper currency issued by the International Monetary Fund that has lain dormant for half a century.

"In effect, the G20 leaders have activated the IMF's power to create money and begin global 'quantitative easing'. In doing so, they are putting a de facto world currency into play. It is outside the control of any sovereign body. Conspiracy theorists will love it."

Wanted for War Crimes: Alberto Gonzales
Spanish prosecutors will seek criminal charges against Alberto Gonzales and five high-ranking Bush administration officials for sanctioning torture at Guantánamo.

Spanish prosecutors have decided to press forward with a criminal investigation targeting former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and five top associates over their role in the torture of five Spanish citizens held at Guantánamo, several reliable sources close to the investigation have told The Daily Beast. Their decision is expected to be announced on Tuesday before the Spanish central criminal court, the Audencia Nacional, in Madrid. But the decision is likely to raise concerns with the human-rights community on other points: They will seek to have the case referred to a different judge.

Censored by the lobby: BBC panel finds broadcaster breached guidelines on Israel

In reporting about Israel, BBC's Middle East Editor has breached the corporation's guideline on accuracy and impartiality, an internal BBC complaints panel on Wednesday stated.

The Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland said that the findings show that the BBC has an anti-Israel "bias" and that the position of the editor, Jeremy Bowen, is "untenable." The corporation rejected these claims.

Comment: To the informed reader who has heard Bowen's, or other BBC ,'reporting' from the middle east, especially during the recent slaughter in Gaza, the idea that there is bias against Israel is laughable. The BBCs coverage is so completely devoid of contextual or historical information on the Israeli occupation as to be useless.

Continued pressure from the Zionist Federation aims to see to it that it stays that way. The BBCs recent refusal to air a charity appeal on behalf of Palestinian victims of the attack on Gaza being a case in point. See: BBC refuses to broadcast charity appeal for Gaza aid

Afghan villagers say NATO strike killed six civilians

An overnight NATO-led air strike on a remote Afghan village killed six civilians, including children, Afghan officials said yesterday, but Western forces said they had targeted armed militants.

Civilian deaths caused by foreign troops hunting the Taliban have become a major cause of friction between the Afghan government and its Western backers, and sapped support for the presence of Western forces in the country. In some cases, US and Western troops have initially disputed reports of civilian casualties, only to later acknowledge them and apologise.

Oops, you weren't meant to see that! Oh well, too late now. Guess we'll have to call in MI5...
Gordon Brown is asking Pakistan for help after the arrest of 12 al-Qaeda terrorist suspects in Britain last night.

The results of Operation Pathway, the co-ordinated raids brought forward to yesterday after a security breach by Scotland Yard's counter-terrorism chief, have raised considerable alarm because 11 of those arrested were Pakistanis who have been staying in Britain on student visas. There are fears that they came to the country as genuine students before plotting to mount a terrorist attack, or even that they arrived under that guise with the intention of forming a terrorist sleeper cell.
