About a boy

This might qualify as a Paul Harvey “The Rest of the Story” piece. It is simply amazing how much evidence private researchers have accumulated over the past decades concerning the JFK assassination. They’ve identified the shooters, locations of the snipers’ nests, the probable command center, the role of officer Tippett, and some of the high-profile people who made it all happen.

Most players, of course, were involved only on a need-to-know basis. Once they realize what is going down, that they are part of a major crime, they know they are in deep trouble and so shut up. Ole Dammegård has spent the last 30 years investigating JFK and other crimes and has gotten some of these insiders to talk.

He noticed that the 1986 murder of Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme had many similarities to JFK, and so came to realize that the formula for murder of high-profile people is pretty much the same over time and no matter the place. Mechanics are brought in from many places, some fire blanks so that the real murderer is never certain and all are accountable. A patsy is selected and sheepdipped, the murder committed (and the patsy murdered too if he cannot otherwise be kept quiet). A cover-up ensues that goes on for decades thereafter.

It appears that the cover-up takes more planning than the crime itself. There are still people in Langley and other places tasked with minding the details of the JFK murder, along with other high-profile crimes.

This is just a small detail but caught my eye. It was a piece of information from Dammegård coupled with something else a I had read. Dammegård says that a CIA agent based in LA in 1963, Chauncy Holt, was tasked with producing fake ID’s for all of the bogus Secret Service agents that were running around Dealey Plaza after the murder, confiscating film and tracking and interviewing (and intimidating) potential problem witnesses. Holt was not a witting participant in the crime. He was told to take the fake ID’s to Dallas and give them to a man named Charles Harrelson for handling.

Charles Harrelson was born in Midland, Texas, and married Diane Lou Oswald, just a coincidental name. He was a professional hitman, and was arrested in 1979 for killing a federal judge. He died in prison. Charles and Diane had three sons, Jordan, Brett, and Woodrow.

That last one, Woodrow Tracy Harrelson, is better known today as Woody Harrelson, the actor. I’ve long liked the guy and notice that he takes part in activist causes, plays edgy characters, and was in an insider’s delight of a truth-smuggling movie called Wag the Dog. He is also skeptical of the official story about 9/11. I wonder how much he knows about JFK, and if his Dad ever told him anything about the events of that day from his prison cell.

Update: Silly me – Charles Harrelson, I learn, has long been thought to be one of the the three “tramps” who were led from Dealey Plaza by fake cops and released that day. There is a very strong resemblance. First, the tramps (the third, presumably E. Howard Hunt, is hidden from view in this photo): image

And a close up of the faces, the center tramp and the known Charles Harrelson.

      1. No, good catch!

        It is a strange surname, more a first name I’d say. Or it may well be derived from Ostwald (=Eastern Forest in German).

        Friedrich Wilhelm Ostwald (2 September 1853 – 4 April 1932) was a German chemist. He received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1909 for his work on catalysis, chemical equilibria and reaction velocities. Ostwald, Jacobus Henricus van ‘t Hoff, Walther Nernst, and Svante Arrhenius are usually credited with being the modern founders of the field of physical chemistry.

        Baltic [then Russian] German, compare Oswalds “ties to the Soviet Union”.


        Martin Ostwald (January 15, 1922 – April 10, 2010) was a German-American classical scholar, who taught until 1992 at Swarthmore College and the University of Pennsylvania. His main field of study was the political structures of Ancient Greece.

        Born the elder son of a German-Jewish lawyer… He had always intended to become a classical scholar, but when this possibility was removed by the passage of the Nuremberg Laws of 1935, which closed the German universities to Jews, he decided instead to pursue his interests in teaching and scholarship by becoming a rabbi.

        But during the [staged] Reichskristallnacht on November 9 [9/11], 1938, Ostwald was arrested together with his father and his younger brother, Ernest. Forced to leave his parents behind in Germany, Ostwald and his brother were able to emigrate to England via the Netherlands on a Kindertransport. In England, however, Ostwald and other German refugees were, in the wake of the British defeat at Dunkirk, transferred to a concentration camp in Canada.

        Ostwald taught as visiting professor at Princeton University, the University of California at Berkeley, … and, for many years, at Tel Aviv University.

        Spooky, if you ask me.

        Funnily enough, Miles Mathis doesn’t name “Ostwald” in any of his papers as a viable option. Even though his grandfather, Colonel William Maxwell Oswald was born in the tiny town of Woodville, Mississippi:

        In that second period of prosperity [when William was born, between 1830 and the Civil War], the town was called “Little Jerusalem.” Sephardic Jewish businessmen came for economic opportunities and made significant contributions to the town’s built environment and culture. Most of them later moved away. Woodville’s synagogue burned in the 1930s, but its Jewish cemetery may be visited.

        Again, nothing about him in MM’s papers…?

        Who else had ties to this Woodville town? The only president of the Confederate States of America… So intimately linked to that other famous ‘assassination’ of a US president, nearly 100 years before… what a small world!

        Jefferson [named after Thomas Jefferson] Davis -son of Samuel Emory Davis and maternal grandson of Sarah Simpson- began his education at the Wilkinson Academy in the small town of Woodville, near the family cotton plantation.
