Why didn't the WC issue an interim report?
« on: June 27, 2022, 07:53:13 PM »
The story goes that Johnson was putting pressure on the WC to issue their report well ahead of the 1964 presidential election so that the public could see in the report that Johnson was not involved in the assassination of JFK. This put pressure on the WC to get things wrapped up very quick.

However, to get around this issue with Johnson, the WC could just have issued an interim report in the summer of 1964 stating the basic findings that ended up in the WC report that there was no evidence that anyone other than Oswald was involved. The WC could have then taken the next 6 months or so (perhaps into the spring of 1965) before issuing the final report itself.

I don't think there is any good reason why Earl Warren, who was used to writing reports and interim reports, could not have simply followed this route.

  there was no evidence that anyone other than Oswald was involved.
Of course we all know [as you guys like to assert]........ no one ever really looked for any.
They just went with the FBI cover-up report that was concluded less than a month after the assassination.
The following February this was shown on a Life magazine cover -------



Proving supposedly that Oswald was a killer ::)

Either you are joking or you are just completely unaware of what took place in this investigation.

And in the HSCA investigation. And the Clark Panel. And the Rockefeller Commission. And the Church Committee Hearings (i.e., no CIA involvement found). And the NY Times investigation. And the Washington Post investigation. And the CBS investigation. And the NBC investigation. And the ABC investigation. And the foreign press investigations. And the PBS investigation. And the.....I'll stop here at, what 10? 11?

How many investigations are needed? How many times? We just dismiss all of this? All of them were lies? Coverups? All of these people? For decades? It's always the Warren Commission, the Warren Commission. And all of these other inquiries are dismissed.

At what point does reality enter into these discussion?

Thumb1:  Thumb1:

"Amazingly, conspiracy theorists don't feel the slightest twinge of discomfort or uneasiness when they dump
in the trash the conclusions reached by all of these entities --- the Warren Commission, the HSCA, the Clark Panel, and the Rockefeller Commission. Per the CTers, EVERY SINGLE ONE of the above organizations dropped the ball and/or just flat-out LIED about the assassination of JFK. ALL FOUR of those outfits got it wrong, according to the
all-knowing CTers. Even the conspiracy-seeking HSCA got it totally wrong, too, per the CTers, because virtually
all conspiracy believers think that JFK was hit in the head from the FRONT, which is not what the HSCA determined.
To borrow some more verbiage from Vince Bugliosi --- "Arrogance thought it already had a bad name. That was before it met Oliver Stone [and virtually all other JFK conspiracy theorists who are more than willing to dismiss virtually everything uttered by ALL FOUR of the Governmental committees and commissions mentioned above]"."

I think that if LBJ had really wanted the report finalized significantly earlier that he probably would have had it. The way it was released a few weeks before the election, I believe, worked better for LBJ, politically, than a significantly earlier (interim or final) report would have. Just my opinion.

An “inquiry” isn’t an investigation if it relies on all of the same source material, speculation, and assumptions.

As if that "wanted poster" photo on the cover of LIFE was not  enough......Life was determined to inform the public who viewed this copy of LIFE that  "Lee Harvey Oswald shown with the guns he used to kill President Kennedy and Officer Tippit."

At the time LIFE was a well respected and widely read publication ....If it appeared in LIFE it was the truth....

PS:   Not all copies of LIFE had that caption printed boldly on the cover....
