There were also open windows in the office buildings along the route. A basic rule in Secret Service protection is no open windows. But at least one open window existed that day because shots were allegedly fired from the 6th floor of the Texas School Book Depository. Videos and photographs from onlookers reveal several other opened windows, including the Dal Tex Building. Would there not be Secret Service or military snipers ready to take out anyone who breached that standard operating procedure?
Inexplicably, there were no Secret Service agents walking, running, or driving beside the president’s side of the limo. How could Kennedy have been left so vulnerable? Why were the servicemen riding behind him and in front of him when the only place they should have been is in the direct line of fire? Their only job was to protect him and they failed astonishingly.
What is also painfully conspicuous is that no assailant was caught at the scene of the crime. Oswald reportedly had enough time to race down four flights of stairs and grab a Coke before encountering a Dallas police officer in the lunchroom. Oddly, a suspicious officer briefly questioned him and then let him go out the front of the building without further interrogation. Why was anyone allowed to leave that building? According to the Warren Commission, after Oswald left the Texas School Book Depository he walked seven blocks before getting on a bus. When the bus got stuck in traffic, Oswald walked to a nearby bus station, hailed a taxi, took it several blocks past his rooming house, and then hiked back to the rooming house. He arrived at his rooming house around 1:00 pm, a full 30 minutes after Kennedy was shot. According to his housekeeper, Oswald left within 5 minutes and went outside by the bus stop. At 1:15 pm, Oswald purportedly shot and killed officer J.D. Tippit. As the story goes, after killing Tippit, Oswald was seen traveling on foot toward the Texas Theater. About 1:35 pm, a manager of a Hardy’s Shoe Store noticed him and called the authorities. He was arrested soon thereafter by some of the most intuitive police officers in the history of law enforcement.
Where was the Secret Service in all of this? They had basically melted away as a defense shield for the president and had all but vanished as a pursuer of his killers after his death. It is not merely gossip to point out that the night before the assassination, they apparently got blitzed till 4:00 am in a nightclub. Eyewitnesses claim that several of them were drinking Everclear, which is basically pure alcohol. The Secret Service later testified that this outing did not compromise their performance. Sure. But there is a reason why drinking during a presidential detail is against the law. Their lethargy-if not complicity in the crime- was never more evident than when the First Lady nearly exited the vehicle after the shots were fired. Jackie Kennedy scrambled to the back of the limo to grab a piece of her husband’s skull and almost fell out of the moving car entirely. If the Secret Service were doing their job, she would have been pinned to the floor of the limo and protected from gunfire immediately.
And where was the surveillance intelligence leading up to the parade?
Turning now to September 11, 2001, it appears that the same playbook was used as was employed during the JFK murder. In both cases the conspirators merely let down our nation’s guard in order to allow an attack to occur under their watch.
Where was the air force? Is it not the best in the world? Where were our top gun pilots? Where were our state of the art fighter jets and super advanced radar systems? How could we allow our airspace to be invaded on such a catastrophic level? For Christ’s sake, the Pentagon was hit at 9:37 am, 51 minutes after the first tower was struck. This structure is one of the most well defended fortresses in the history of nations. How could it be penetrated the way it was? The world was told that the shield of protection around it simply faltered. The world was told that our military was stunned and rendered incapacitated. Bull shit. Why were there no scrambled aircraft to intercept that 747? Dazed and confused war games is not a legitimate answer.
Furthermore, how could there be no video footage of the hijacked airliner crashing into the Pentagon? Is not the modern Pentagon complex one of the most photographed areas anywhere? There must have been thousands of cameras pinpointed on that building. But to this day, there has never been an unambiguous tape of a plane hitting the Pentagon- not a single frame. We do know that at least 80 cameras in and around the site were confiscated by the FBI, never to be seen again.
