Dallas Ebola Shambles : Family Try To Break Out Of Isolation At Virus Victim’s Apartment As Visitors Come And Go - Up To 100 Exposed, Cop Cars Quarantined

Airlines, CDC responsible for allowing this mindless animal to bring in, much less willingly spread Ebola in the United States; Texas Governor should declare an emergency and martial law, shooting quarantine breakers on sight just as Singaporean authorities threatened to do during 2003 SARS outbreak - yes Americans, this outbreak is indeed that serious    

By Louise Boyle

The response to the first Ebola case in the U.S. was in chaos today after it emerged that the exposed relatives of the contagious patient tried to break out of their apartment where the sweat-soaked, contaminated bedsheets and towels lay for days.

THIS ANIMAL LIED,  brought Ebola into U.S.
Up to 100 people in Texas are believed to have had contact with Ebola sufferer Thomas Eric Duncan since he developed symptoms of the deadly virus last Thursday at 10pm. 

Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital earlier reported that Mr Duncan had come for treatment on Friday - but the new timeline adds an extra day to how long he was out in public. 

The patient's quarantined girlfriend Louise told CNN on Thursday that she had not been told what to do with the soiled linens used by Mr Duncan when he was ill and had not been given food. 

The woman has been legally ordered to stay inside her Dallas apartment with her 13-year-old child and two nephews, who are both in their twenties, as they came in direct contact with Mr Duncan. 

None of the four people quarantined are showing Ebola symptoms but Louise, who works as a home healthcare aide, has been taking the group's temperature every hour.

Among the 12 people being closely monitored were five children - who attend four area schools. Panic-stricken parents in the area pulled their kids out of classes after they received Ebola fact sheets and notes which said 'everything is fine'. Schools were also scrubbed down and extra nurses brought in to monitor any students with fevers or flu-like symptoms. 

The CDC jumped into action on Thursday afternoon, sending a contract team to clear the bedding, provide food and power-wash the apartment complex - a full four days after Mr Duncan was rushed to hospital in an ambulance after suffering vomiting, diarrhea, fever and sweating. 

On Thursday afternoon, it was revealed that four sheriff's deputies, a health director and a doctor, went into the quarantined apartment without protection, NBC5 reported. 

Two Douglas County Sheriff's Office patrol cars have now been cordoned off and the deputies have been told to seal their uniforms in bags and go home. 

Unidentified peers from quarantined apartment
Mr Duncan arrived from Liberia, an Ebola 'hot zone' in West Africa, on September 20. He began to develop Ebola symptoms - the point when the disease becomes contagious - on September 23. He was sent home from his first hospital trip with antibiotics despite telling two medical staff he had flown in from Liberia. His partner Louise said she doesn't believe he left the apartment in this time but she cannot be certain because she was at work. 

His condition deteriorated and he was rushed to hospital via ambulance on Sunday and quarantined.

However it was alleged on Thursday that Mr Duncan lied on an airport questionnaire about not having any contact with an infected person, authorities said on Thursday. 

Mr Duncan filled out a series of questions about his health and activities before leaving on his journey to Dallas, Texas on September 19. On the form he answered no to every question.

Among other questions, the form asked whether Duncan had cared for an Ebola patient or touched the body of anyone who had died in an area affected by Ebola. 


The New York Times reported on Wednesday that Mr Duncan had helped carried a neighbor's pregnant daughter who was dying from Ebola.

The Liberian government said on Thursday that it planned to prosecute Mr Duncan over the lies while the country's President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf told CBC today that she was 'very angry' that Mr Duncan had left Liberia after being exposed to Ebola and that his actions were 'unpardonable'. 

President Sirleaf also said that she hoped that no one else would contract the potentially deadly virus which has ravaged her country. 

And despite Duncan spreading Ebola to the U.S., a U.N. spokesman said on Thursday that air travel to and from the West African countries affected by the Ebola virus should continue.

It also appears that Mr Duncan did not mention his close contact with a severe case of Ebola to his partner Louise, with whom he has one child. 

She told CNN's Anderson Cooper during a telephone interview on Thursday that the couple did not discuss Ebola and she initially thought Duncan had malaria when she brought him to Texas Presbyterian.

Louise does not believe she has Ebola because she did not come in contact with bodily fluids. She said Mr Duncan was 'prideful' in taking care of himself when he became sick. 

She also did not believe he had thrown up repeatedly outside the apartment on Sunday, as a neighbor reported, and wished to reassure her neighbors.

Meanwhile, the number of family members who came in contact with Mr Duncan while he was contagious remains unclear, CNN reported. 

Louise's daughter, who does not live at the quarantined apartment, was the person who called an ambulance for Mr Duncan on Sunday after she came to her mother's home to bring him tea and found him feverish and shivering.

It is unclear if she traveled with him in the ambulance or came in close contact with the infected man. 

Louise told CNN that she has other children, who are not currently living at the home but elsewhere in Dallas and also a son at college. They had not come in contact with Mr Duncan, she said.

The family who are isolated in the apartment have been told they face criminal charges if they leave the apartment or accept visitors. 

Dallas Judge Clay Jenkins told ABC today that a legal quarantine order was placed on the home after the family tried to break out of the apartment. 

However MailOnline reported on Wednesday that three individuals - a man in his twenties with a roll of garbage bags and two women - came and left the apartment. 

Louise said that she has been given no instructions by the Center for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC) on how to dispose of the contaminated bedding in the home or what the family would do for food.

She said that two CDC workers who visited the home on Wednesday brought sandwiches but they had no other food. 

At a press conference on Thursday afternoon, Judge Jenkins was quick to respond to those claims, saying that several days supply of food was being delivered to the quarantined group and contaminated material would be removed by biohazard experts.

He added that the family were being treated with the 'utmost respect and dignity'.

The Red Cross were seen delivering food on Thursday to the family's second story apartment. 

A young man, who appeared to be one of the adult nephews under quarantine, appeared on the balcony to bring the food inside, dressed in a T-shirt bearing the logo 'YOLO - You Only Live Once'. 

Mr Duncan's partner Louise told CNN on Thursday that she is very worried but keeps praying and has spoken Mr Duncan via telephone.

Texas health officials said around 100 people may have come into contact with Mr Duncan and they are being questioned.

Authorities have confirmed 12 people including five children had direct contact with Mr Duncan and are being closely monitored.

Some parents have pulled their children out of four affected Dallas schools after learning that five students may have come into contact with Mr Duncan, the first person to be diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S.

School administrators appealed for calm as none of the children have shown symptoms and are being told to stay at home, where they will likely remain for three weeks. 

Parents and pupils at schools in Dallas where children were possibly infected with Ebola said that they were appalled at how the crisis was being handled. 

The schools were named as Tasby Middle School, Dan D. Rogers Elementary, Lowe Elementary and Conrad High School. 

Parents and students were only told on Wednesday that their schools had been affected - a day after the public were informed that a patient had the deadly virus.

They were given a letter and a fact sheet but were told it was 'all fine' and that children had to remain in school. 

But Marcie Pardo and other parents left L.L. Hotchkiss Elementary indicating that they were taking no chances and would keep their children home for the rest of the week. 

'Kids pretty much touch everything. Not everyone washes their hands,' Pardo said. 'It's the contagious part that gets me worried.'

Nikki Turner, 31, who has a 13-year-old and a 15-year-old at Tasby Middle School and Conrad High told MailOnline on Thursday that the school authorities 'could be doing a lot more'.

She said: 'All I've been told was in a phone call on Wednesday when they said the children who had it are being taken out and it was all OK.

'I had to take my children to hospital last night for blood tests to make sure they're alright. They are not telling us enough, they need to tell me more.' 

Ebola isn't contagious until symptoms appear, and then it can spread only by close contact with a patient's bodily fluids. 

Ms Pardo said that knowledge makes her feel better, but that she still took her eight-year-old daughter, Soriah, home from school early, along with her cousin. 

Dallas Independent School District Superintendent Mike Miles said on Wednesday the district is taking an 'abundance of caution' and would add more health workers to keep watch for symptoms among students. 

At the affected schools, cleaning teams in hazmat suits were seen scrubbing the hallways, reported. 

'The students didn't have any symptoms, so the odds of them passing on any sort of virus is very low,' Miles said.

However tensions have already risen among some students.

Tasby student Francisco Garcia, 14, described a scene of chaos to MailOnline on Wednesday as pupils found out through gossip rather than an official announcement.

He said: 'One kid was telling everyone that somebody had Ebola in school but nobody believed him. We said that Ebola was something that happens in Africa'

'We were all joking about it and touching each other and saying you have Ebola.

'Then our health sciences teacher told us it was true and told us not to panic. There was not announcement or anything. They just let us out floor by floor at the end of the day.'

His friend Angela Gandy, 14, added: 'They have not had any doctors in to check on us. One of my friends' mums took her out of school and is keeping her there for 21 days.'

Evelyn Barrientos, 12, a pupil at Tasby, said that there had been no doctors in the school to check up on them.

She said: 'I think they should be keeping us away from school. If it was up to me I would not be here. I don't think they are taking it as seriously as they should.'

Her mother Maria Arredondo, 39, added: 'I'm scared. I'm worried for my daughter'.

A letter handed out to parents of students at Tasby on Wednesday warned parents that one of school's students may have had contact with the Ebola patient and had been advised to stay home from classes.

The note reassured parents that their children were not in 'imminent danger' and that health measures were being put in place. Additional nurses would be at the school to watch children who report fever or flu-like symptoms and the school building would be thoroughly cleaned each night as a precaution. 

Ebola is believed to have sickened more than 7,100 people in West Africa, and led to more than 3,300 deaths have been linked to the disease, according to the World Health Organization. 

Symptoms can include fever, muscle pain, vomiting and bleeding, and can appear as long as 21 days after exposure to the virus.

Details of his treatment have not been revealed but Mr Duncan is reportedly not being treated with the experimental serum ZMapp - because there is none left. 

It was not exactly clear how the Ebola patient knew the children, but his sister Mai Wureh said he had been visiting with family including two nephews. 

Officials have not revealed the ages of the children who had contact with the man.

The mounting panic in Dallas comes as new details about the severity of Mr Duncan's condition were revealed including that he was 'vomiting all over the place' when he was eventually admitted to hospital on Sunday - four days are showing symptoms of Ebola. 

One neighbor, Mesud Osmanovic, told NBC that Mr Duncan was 'throwing up all over the place' outside the apartment block as he was helped into an ambulance while his hysterical family looked on. 

Mr Duncan's family were among the original 12 - 18 people being monitored after exposure to the man along with the ambulance crew who transported him to hospital.

The three crew members all tested negative for Ebola on Wednesday but have been placed in 'reverse isolation' at their homes for the next 21 days as a precaution. 

Ambulance 37 which transported him to the hospital has been cordoned off. There are concerns after it was used to move patients for two days after the Ebola patient but hospital officials have reassured citizens that it was properly sterilized. 

State officials delivered a legal order on Wednesday night to the family of Mr Duncan, ordering them to stay home until October 19 and not have any visitors without approval, officials said.

'We have tried and true protocols to protect the public and stop the spread of this disease,' said Dr. David Lakey, Texas health commissioner.

'This order gives us the ability to monitor the situation in the most meticulous way.'The Liberian national had traveled to the U.S. from Liberia on September 20 to visit his family, traveling via Brussels in Belgium.

Ambulance 37 which transported him to the hospital has been cordoned off. There are concerns after it was used to move patients for two days after the Ebola patient but hospital officials have reassured citizens that it was properly sterilized. 

The Liberian national had traveled to the U.S. from Liberia on September 20 to visit his family, traveling via Brussels in Belgium.

Mr Duncan began to develop symptoms of Ebola on September 24, four days after arriving in the U.S. 

He first went to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital on September 26 where he told a nurse that he was visiting from a West African country in the so-called 'Ebola hot zone'.

Mr Duncan underwent basic blood tests but not an Ebola screening. 

The 42-year-old was sent home with antibiotics for a 'low-grade virus', a critically-missed opportunity to prevent others being exposed to the disease. 

He was finally quarantined on Sunday - a week after arriving in the U.S. 

It also raised the frightening prospect that he was mixing freely with others for a full four days while showing symptoms of the virus - the time when Ebola is most contagious. 

Texas Presbyterian officials confirmed on Wednesday that information that Mr Duncan had been in an area of Ebola outbreak 'was not fully communicated throughout the whole team'. 

As health officials scrambled to contain the infection, Texas Governor Rick Perry said at a hospital press conference on Wednesday that he had 'full confidence' in Texas medical teams when it came to the safety and welfare of citizens, adding that only those who came in close contact with the patient when he was contagious were at risk. 

According to The New York Times, Mr Duncan worked moving cargo for Fedex in the Liberian capital Monrovia but had recently quit his job and acquired a visa to come to the U.S. where his son reportedly lives.

The Times also revealed that Mr Duncan may have contracted Ebola while helping carry his landlord's seriously ill, pregnant daughter to hospital.

The woman, named by The Times as 19-year-old Marthalene Williams was taken to a hospital on September 15, but turned away because there was no room to treat her. She died the following day.

The landlord's son and three neighbors who came in contact with the woman also died soon afterwards.

The Liberian government said on Wednesday that Mr Duncan showed no signs of fever or symptoms of the virus when he left Liberia for the United States via Brussels on September 19.

The patient showed no symptoms of the disease during his journey - which also included a stop en route in Brussels, Belgium. 

Hundreds of passengers were exposed to Mr Duncan after it was revealed that the traveler took at least three flights to get from Liberia to Dallas - because there is no direct flight from Belgium to Texas.

The other flight that Mr Duncan boarded is currently unknown and no details are being released.

United Airlines has said it believes Mr Duncan flew from Brussels to Washington Dulles on Flight 951 before he traveled from Washington Dulles to Dallas Fort-Worth on Flight 822.

Belgium's health ministry said U.S. experts had advised Brussels that the man was not displaying Ebola symptoms and so would not have been in a position to pass on the virus. A spokesman said that Belgium therefore did not need to trace fellow passengers or crew of Brussel Airlines, one of a very few operators still flying to Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. 

A team of CDC 'disease detectives' arrived in Dallas on Wednesday and were going door-to-door to find out who may have come in contact with the man while he was contagious with Ebola.

Residents living in the same apartment block that is 'ground zero' for the Ebola outbreak in Dallas spoke of their fears. 

Despite reassurances from health chiefs that the deadly virus has been contained many residents are fearful that they might have been infected.

Sources within the Dallas Fire Department said the man carrying the Ebola virus was picked up by an ambulance from the Ivy Apartment complex in North Dallas.

Mother-of-three, Elizabeth Rayo, watched the victim being taken out of his flat and pushed on a gurney into the back of an ambulance.

'I could not see his face, but just saw the ambulance outside and he was being loaded in,' she told Mail Online. 'I know he lives in the same block as me, but I do not know his name.'

Ms Rayo said the residents had no idea at the time that the victim had the highly-contagious disease. She did not see any health officials at the complex, which is mostly home to newly, arrived immigrants from Africa and India.

'No one said anything to us. I only found out that this was the place when the media turned up,' she said.

The 29-year-old, who has lived at the Ivy Apartments for two years, said: 'Of course I am very worried. I have three children. If the man had Ebola we should have been told. We should have been allowed to leave.'

There was no sign of any CDC activity at the complex which is comprised of apartments in two-story blocks set around a large car park. The managers of the apartment complex evicted media saying it was private property.

A manager, who identified herself as Sally, shouted at media to leave claiming she has no idea the Ebola victim lived within the complex.

Two police cars arrived to escort media from the premises while traffic cones were placed across the entrance.

Several residents spoken to by MailOnline were unaware that Ebola victim lived in the apartment complex which is home to more than 400 people.

Residents pay $800 a month for a two-bedroom apartment.

Other local residents were concerned that the complex had not been placed into quarantine. Mother Toni Gomez, who lives opposite the complex, said: 'Yes, I am scared. Who wants to live next to somewhere where there is such a horrible virus? I think the place should at least be sealed off and no one allowed to go in and out.'

Ms Gomez, who was clutching her one-year-old daughter Demaruia, added: 'I'm really concerned because I have to live here with my family.' 

At one point a young boy aged around four could be seen peering through the drawn blinds of the apartment that looked out onto the parking lot. 

President Obama is aware of the patient's Ebola diagnosis and the public health investigation, the White House said. 

Since the summer months, U.S. health officials have been preparing for the possibility that an individual traveler could unknowingly arrive with the infection. Health authorities have advised hospitals on how to prevent the virus from spreading within their facilities.

People boarding planes in the outbreak zone are checked for fever, but that does not guarantee that an infected person won't get through. Liberia is one of the three hardest-hit countries in the epidemic, along with Sierra Leone and Guinea.

The epidemic has killed close to 4,000 people in West Africa.

"The CDC Is Lying To Us!" : Doctor Checks In At Atlanta Airport In Full Protective Gear To Protest Against CDC Handling Of Ebola Outbreak

CDC has never stopped lying: Satanic organisation should be dismantled, it's "doctors" and "scientists" charged with Crimes Against Humanity and mass-murder; tried, convicted and publicly executed for allowing and even expediting this deadly virus into the United States 

By Mia De Graff

It comes two days after a man in Texas became the first person to be diagnosed with Ebola in an American hospital.

Courageous:  Dr. Gil Mobley
And today it emerged a patient in Honolulu, Hawaii, has been placed in isolation with suspected Ebola. 

Blasting the CDC for doing nothing to stop the spread, Mobley called on airports and passengers to take their own action instead of waiting for official guidance.

'Yesterday, I came through international customs at the airport,' he told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. 'The only question they asked arriving passengers is if they had tobacco or alcohol.'

'The CDC is asleep at the wheel,' Mobley said. '...It's going to be bad, and I want to make sure that this conversation is happening that this could get out of control in the United States.' 

The animal that knowingly exposed U.S. to Ebola
'With 10,000 people flying out if west Africa daily its only a matter of time until all corners of the world are exposed,' Mobley said. 

'Once it devours third world countries, the US will be importing these cases daily. Eventually the clusters will overwhelm even the most advanced countries' ability to isolate and quarantine all those exposed. 

'The CDC needs to be honest with us.' 

A CDC spokesman rebuffed the protest, claiming there was no risk that needed to be investigated.

'There were no signs of any disease when the gentleman boarded the flight,' said Dr. Tom Kenyon, director of the CDC's Center for Global Health. 

'This was not a failure of the screening process at the airport.'

Up to 100 people were in contact with the Dallas Ebola patient at some point, Texas health officials said today, marking a significant jump from the 18 people that authorities had said may have been exposed to the deadly virus.

Four members of 42-year-old Thomas Eric Duncan's family have been legally ordered to stay home as a precaution even though they are not showing symptoms, the Texas Department of State Health Services said in a statement on Thursday. Violating the order could result in criminal charges.

The epitome of medical professional courage, integrity:  Dr. Gil Mobley exposes CDC liars, alerts Americans to impending Ebola pandemic

The health officials said around 100 people may have come into contact with Mr Duncan. Earlier, they had put the figure at up to 18, including five children.

Some parents have temporarily removed their children from Dallas schools after learning that the five students may have come into contact with the first person to be diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S.

As with every cover-up, the TRUTH despite the passing of the decades since this assassination continues to emerge    

By Andrew Kreig

A former Cuban exile anti-Castro militant told a conference audience Sept. 26 in a blockbuster revelation that he saw accused presidential assassin Lee Harvey Oswald with their mutual CIA handler six weeks before the killing and there would have been no anti-Castro movement in Cuba without the CIA funding.

Antonio Veciana, the acknowledged leader of the Alpha 66 assassination squad of Cuban exiles in the early 1960s, made the statements in a dignified but emotion-laden manner at this year's major conference analyzing the Warren Commission report on murder of President John F. Kennedy Nov. 22, 1963 in Dallas. 

Alpha 66 is alleged to have tried to kill Cuban leader Fidel Castro on two occasions, but Veciana, a onetime certified public accountant for a wealthy Cuban in the years before the revolution, has never been been charged with an attempt.

Separately, the general counsel of the last major government investigation into the killing issued a statement saying the CIA had deceived him and the rest of the public during the late 1970s inquiry into the validity of the Warren report. 

Former House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) General Counsel G. Robert Blakey issued the statement during the conference Sept. 26-28 organized at the Bethesda Hyatt Regency Hotel in Bethesda, MD by the Assassination Archives and Research Center (AARC).

Antonio Veciana
Veciana said he is convinced the CIA organized the president's murder and that he saw Oswald meeting with a CIA official in Dallas because Veciana arrived at his meeting fifteen minutes too early. 

Veciana said he believes Oswald was a CIA operative whom the agency decided to blame for a killing it organized in a complex plot.

Veciana said his CIA handler was the late David Atlee Phillips.

Phillips was a high-ranking CIA official who used the cover named "Maurice Bishop" during his many meetings with Veciana. Earlier this year, Veciana confirmed to researcher Marie Fonzi, widow of his friend the author Gaeton Fonzi, that "Bishop" was "Phillips." But Veciana has never previously answered questions in a public forum.

David Atlee Phillips
The CIA placed Phillips in charge of the CIA's Cuba operations after the newly created agency recruited him from newspaper work in 1950s. According to biographers, Phillips, a former actor born in Texas, used hundreds of aliases in his CIA work. After retirement from the CIA Phillips organized thousands of fellow intelligence officers into the politically influential Association of Former Intelligence Officers. 

The group quietly helped support the political career of former CIA Director George H.W. Bush and Bush allies, among other endeavours.

Veciana, 85, spoke through a translator and with a son by his side. He said he was trained as a CPA and admired "Bishop" and the CIA deeply for many years.

Now, however, he said he wanted to set the record straight because he has come to admire also Kennedy, whom and he and Phillips once regarded as a "traitor" for allowing communist Cuban leader Fidel Castro to remain in power.

Former Top JFK Investigator Rebukes CIA For Cover-up

Blakey, shown in a file photo from his longtime work as a professor of law at Notre Dame University, spoke Sept. 27. 

(HSCA) General Counsel G. Robert Blakey
He reiterated his statement read by former colleagues the previous day, and answered questions. His statement is available via a link at the top of the AARC site here. Blakey's committee issued a report in 1979 on behalf of the House scrutinising the original 1964 Warren report.

The two admissions were part of an explosive agenda for the conference, which I helped open with an address on why the 50th anniversary of the Warren report is a unique, historic opportunity to solve the nation's most important murder, one whose after-effects continue to the present with the unchecked power of the CIA as a secret government.

I amplified on that theme on Sept. 27 in an afternoon panel "Why Won't the Media Cover the Story?"

The remarks drew from my recent book research for Presidential Puppetry: Obama Romney and Their Masters, which documents on the record how all recent presidents, including Barack Obama, were involved with CIA or FBI covert information-gathering operations before they entered politics. These kinds of under-reported relationships foster the ascendancy of the nation's leaders -- including in business, politics, academics and the media -- in ways unknown to the general public. The methods? For those in the media and academia, it's by facilitating book contracts, university posts, television appearances and consultancies for those with pro-Warren themes and thwarting others seeking to offer contrary evidence, such as Oswald's role as a CIA and FBI under-cover operative.

As previously reported here and elsewhere, the CIA used Operation Mockingbird to control messaging at major news organizations in the 1950s and 1960s. Also, the CIA generated a now-declassified memo in April 1967 instructing its operatives to use major newspapers and broadcast outlets to describe critics of the Warren Commission as "conspiracy theorists" unfit for belief or employment.

The conference panel agreed for the most part that ownership and top management of mainstream news organizations have thwarted for the most part meaningful coverage of vital discrepancies in the Warren report. 

To do so would call into question a half century of slanted and biased government statements and reporting. However, one panelist said Warren report critics need to do a far better job in reaching out in a professional manner to journalists and their outlets.

C-SPAN covered the conference's opening, but reportedly removed it from view and has not yet announced its cablecast schedule.

Among the conference highlights, a team of professional actors provided a dramatic reading Sept. 27 of a long-secret transcript of a Commission meeting in January 1964 in which commissioners secretly addressed the threat that two newspaper reporters posed. According to Texas law enforcement officials, the reporters had discovered that the supposed "lone nut" Oswald was actually an FBI paid asset from the time he returned to the United States following his sojourn in the Soviet Union through the time of the JFK assassination.

At the conference also, Oswald's friends Buell Wesley Frazier and Dr. Ernst Titovets said they never believed their friend could be guilty of murder. They regarded him as a "patsy" -- as Oswald claimed before he was murdered by Jack Ruby at a Dallas police station two days after the assassination.

Frazier made his first public appearance to describe his experiences on the day of the assassination. He said that at age 19 he drove his fellow worker Oswald to work at the Texas Book Depository on the fateful day of the assassination. Frazier said a package Oswald carried was too small to contain a rifle, as the Warren Commission claimed. He recalled that police detained him and threaten him in a fruitless effort (regarding Frazier) to obtain incriminating evidence against Oswald. Titovets is a professor of medicine in his native Belarus, with M.D. and Ph.D. degrees in the field of brain and other neurological research. He has published a new edition of his 2010 memoir: Oswald: Russian Episode.

In other conference news, professor author and former intelligence officer Dr. John Newman traced more than a dozen of the Phillips identities to show his work was so secret that even his internal memos at the CIA, now declassified in part, show that he was trying to fool fellow employees about his activities. 

Also, AARC President James Lesar called for an end of obstruction by the National Archives in complying with the provisions of a 1992 law passed unanimously by Congress to make all available records public regarding the JFK murder. Lesar, an attorney fighting freedom of information battles, has argued that the CIA exercises too much influence over the Archives and other Washington officials on the issue.

For further links on the conference, see the links below, most notably in our recent column,Washington Post Still Selling Warren Report 50 Years Later. The column shows both how the newspaper continues to suppress and distort reporting about the killing.

Fearless:  New Orleans DA Jim Garrison
The column includes also a link to a gripping video statement made in 1967 by New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, who unsuccessfully brought murder conspiracy charges in the JFK death murder against a CIA operative, businessman Clay Shaw, and perhaps more importantly eloquently described for the ages why American citizens deserve the full facts of the killing even though it might prove temporarily embarrassing for some government officials or news executives.

President Lyndon B. Johnson was the former Texas senator and vice president who succeeded Kennedy after the assassination. 

Johnson named the seven-member Warren Commission to reassure the public. The commission was named for Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren and included former CIA Director Allen Dulles.

Just three days after Kennedy's Nov. 22 killing, Deputy Attorney General Nicholas Katzenbach wrote Bill Moyers, the major communications adviser to incoming president.

Nicholas Katzenbach
As top deputy to Attorney Gen. Robert Kennedy, Katzenbach -- a Princeton-Yale-Oxford-schooled mandarin -- helped lead the Justice Department and White House toward a predetermined conclusion against Oswald. Like many orchestrating or otherwise involved in the cover-up, Katzenbach had many fine qualities and career successes widely celebrated through the decades. The honors and promotions occurred even as they hid career-enabling secrets, which many of the officials have confided (according to books and documents) they undertook with various patriotic motives.

As reported last year here on this site in our Readers Guide to the JFK murder, virtually all major U.S. publications and broadcasters have supported the Warren Commission findings to the present. The news outlets have trivialized contrary evidence as "conspiracy" on the rare occasions they address it even if significant evidence, as in the Veciana comments, suggests that Oswald was a cog in larger operations and did not necessarily mean any harm to Kennedy, whom Titovets described as Oswald's hero. 

Time Magazine illustrated the ongoing pattern this year in its nine-page special supplement on Sept. 24 (excerpted below) extolling the Warren Commission and vilifying Oswald, shown at right in a 1964 cover story (Time, Behind the Scenes: The Complete Kennedy Assassination Story in 9 Pages, Lily Rothman, Sept. 24, 2014. OpEdNews, Cuban Exile Militant ClaimsCIA Meeting With Oswald Before JFK Killing, ).

"The public must be satisfied," Katzenbach wrote Moyers in a now declassified memo, "that Oswald was the assassin; that he had no confederates who are still at large; and that evidence was such that he would have been convicted at trial."

Katzenbach was promoted by Johnson to become attorney general. Moyers went on to an illustrious career in newspapers and broadcasting, often adopting a liberal and moralistic point of view.

In April 1967, the CIA created a 50-page memo, "CIA Dispatch 1035-960." The directive instructed CIA assets to explain to their media contacts worldwide how to defend the Warren Report and attack its critics. The document is here in the original, and here in reformatted text of its summary.

This memo initiated the “conspiracy theorist” smear that continues to this day against anyone who speaks against a crime potentially committed by United States government agents working in military, law enforcement or intelligence services.
