Specter & Oswald

Lest we forget, Arlen Specter has been involved in conspiracies for a long time, and Lee Harvey Oswald remains on his mind. Don't take my word for this. Read what he said today.

But first a bit of background.

Guess who invented the "Magic Bullet Theory"?

The Magic Bullet Theory was introduced by the Warren Commission (November 29, 1963 - September 24, 1964) to explain how three shots supposedly made by Lee Harvey Oswald resulted in the assassination of the United States President John F. Kennedy.

The theory is credited to Warren Commission staffer Arlen Specter (currently the present U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania). Specter proposed that a single bullet, known as "Warren Commission Exhibit 399" (also labeled as "CE399"), caused all of the non-fatal wounds in both President Kennedy and Texas Governor John Connally on November 22, 1963, at Dealey Plaza, the site of the first Masonic temple in Dallas, Texas.

The fatal head wound to JFK was caused by a bullet other than this alleged "Magic Bullet."

Today, April 28, 2009, as the media swarmed and tried to interview Senator Arlen Specter about his jump from the Republican Party to the Democratic Party, he is reported to have said, "I don't think Lee Harvey Oswald had this big a crowd trailing him."

What a curious thing to say.

Thanks to a conversation with C. R. and P. H. about this.

Thank you.

I assume that "little" theory is what sealed his place in the system and his Oswald statement was just his way of gloating over all the attention. That's how these people operate.

Specter was also the initial attorney of Ira Einhorn, the "unicorn killer," a one-time friend of Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin. Einhorn was big in the environmental movement and claimed to have invented "Earth Day." Einhorn was arrested for killing Holly Maddux and was initially represented by Arlen Specter. Einhorn's bail was not paid by him but by Barbara Bronfman, a member of the family who owns Seagram's.

I suspect the comment is more reflective of his age than anything else. Being involved in the Warren Commission investigation was probably the seminal event of his political life. Non-baby boomers probably didn't have a clue what he was talking about. To them that's irrelevant ancient history.
