Uh, and that's exactly what I thought you said and that's the argument to which I replied. You might wanna go back and read what you wrote and then read my reply.

I'll take that as a "yes" answer to my question "You have not even read Thomas's analysis of the FBI report, have you?" Yes, it's quite apparent that you have "skimmed" many books, instead of reading and analyzing them with an open mind. Condemning and dismissing an analysis that you have not even bothered to read is not what open-minded, genuine researchers do.

Several times now you have referred me to sources that you touted very highly but that turned out to be superficial and incomplete, and in some cases laughably outdated.

Uh. . . . Okay. . . . This is getting a little weird. Are you this paranoid about everyone who happens to come here and disagrees with your government-kool-aid version of the Lincoln assassination? Obviously, anyone who disagrees with you must have ulterior motives for being here, right? Maybe I'm a secret member of the Society That Will Not See the Emperor's New Clothes.

Your comment above begs the question as to what we (meaning the American public) are supposed to do if we can even prove government cover-ups - not referring just to the alleged one here since I suspect that you have similar agendas related to other historical events? Some very good history has already been wiped out of books or "revised" by so-called historians; the American public is currently turned off by history because of these re-writes and conversations that only confuse things; it appears that American society and cultural values are being questioned (and sometimes wiped out).

If theorists were able to prove their points (and that's very unlikely) so well that the history books do need to be re-written, how do we address the giant cover-ups by our evil forefathers? Do we put them on public trial? Sentence them to imprisonment or death? Figure out how to totally rectify the evil cover-ups that they forced on future generations? Punish future historians who continue to believe old ideas?


Wow. Just Wow. Did you just beam into this century from the 1950s? Do you have any clue how many long-standing historical interpretations have been overturned or seriously and widely challenged by subsequent research just in the last 40 years?

This is getting even weirder. Apparently you view yourself as the self-appointed guardian of all truth about the Lincoln assassination and feel entitled to question the motives of anyone who disagrees with your version of the event. I've never encountered anyone quite like you in any online forum. Anyway, I don't know about you, but I'm just here because I enjoy discussing and exchanging ideas about the Lincoln assassination.

What exactly is your purpose in all this? (You don't need to answer that, because I really could not care less why you post here or why you believe what you believe. I don't feel the need to "stick like a tick" to anyone, no matter how much they might disagree with my position.)
