[4:40 mark] “This film, today, is a satisfactory…uh, triumphant film for me, but it’s a smaller audience because documentaries don’t get worldwide attention. We’re selling it very nicely here, in Europe, and we’ll see where it goes. But America will remain a tough market.” — Oliver Stone, director of JFK Revisited: Through The Looking Glass, speaking to France 24 on 7.13.21.

I know that all the biggies said “no” to Stone and Through The Looking Glass over the last several months, but it really doesn’t figure that some distributor or streaming outfit somewhere wouldn’t want to offer this doc to the U.S. market. Amazon, Hulu, Netflix, HBO Max, History Channel, National Geographic…it doesn’t add up that none would have the slightest interest in putting it out there. Stone and his producers must be asking too much.

Psy-ops (or psychological operations) “are operations to convey selected information and indicators to audiences to influence their emotions, motives, and objective reasoning, and ultimately the behavior of governments, organizations, groups, and individuals.”

HE to Conspiracy Buff: “I’ve watched many, many interview videos with those Parkland Hospital doctors, particularly around the time of the 50th anniversary (i.e., 2013), and NOT A SINGLE INTERVIEWER followed up with the OBVIOUS, to wit:

“Nobody’s challenging the accuracy of your first-hand observations, but how do you explain the bizarre lack of ANY visual evidence in the Zapruder and Nix films…where is the visual evidence that shows a rear-of-the-head blow-out…why is this supposed evidence completely missing in the Zapruder and Nix films? How do you explain this?”

“One could also mention the fact that LIFE’s Richard Stolley — the man who arranged for LIFE’s purchase of the Z film and who saw the raw Zapruder film footage in Dallas right after it came out the lab — its surely significant that Stolley never once mentioned any discrepancy between the raw Z film and the various color versions that eventually became ubiquitous after the full Z film was aired by Geraldo Rivera in the late ‘70s.

“Think of all the people who were involved in the alleged alteration of the Z film…those at the alleged CIA secret lab, not to mention the Bethesda doctors who took pictures of Kennedy’s head wound. during the autopsy and how they all somehow managed to ignore or cover up the gaping occipital head wound WHILE AT THE SAME TIME creating fake images of the top of the head and right temple wounds…

“98% of the folks out there park their cars in the same garage as I do. They’re all figuring that a decent or healthy percentage of the evidence that has come to light over the last 40-plus years (starting with the Frank Church Congressional investigation of ’78 or thereabouts)…they’re all figuring that even with Oswald having probably fired three or four shots from that window, he was almost certainly in league with others…he was certainly not alone….there are too many leads, suggestions and odd trails and associations.

“With all the people who were there in Dealey Plaza at that fateful moment in history, of all the photos taken and all the movie footage (8mm) and whatnot, not a single soul reported having noticed a man in the sixth-floor window, much less with a rifle…not a single soul looked up and noticed anyone in that Texas School Book Depository window…and yet the immediate reaction of some onlookers was ‘the shots came from the grassy knoll’…cops running up the hill, leaping the fence and searching around railroad track area…nothing.

“And how many believe in the big gaping occipital wound thing??…they can’t and they won’t because they’re watched the Z films hundreds of times, and a split second after the fatal head shot, the Dallas noontime sun captured a brief glint of sunlight reflecting off the red goo and liquid-y brain matter…nobody will ever believe that the Z film was altered…nobody will ever believe that. NOT A CHANCE.

“Remember also how the blood and cranial brain matter somehow caught the sun’s reflected glare in Dealey Plaza in the Z film and how difficult it would have been to fake this?…remember also that Jackie Kennedy’s white gloved right hand touched the rear of JFK’s head right after the fatal shot and yet her right-hand white glove wasn’t soaked in blood…and then imagine the number of people involved in this alleged conspiracy to hide and deceive, and ask why none of them — NOT ONE ALLEGED CONSPIRATOR — blurted out any kind of deathbed confession.

“People are generally terrible at keeping a secret, especially over a period of several decades. And yet every last photographic conspirator kept their yaps shut for decades on end. EVERY LAST ONE stuck to Moscow Rules to their last dying breath. That’s not within the general tendency of human nature.”

And yet, a friend writes…

“An especially good witness was Secret Service Agent Clint Hill, the first person to reach the car in the Z film; he rode in the car above Kennedy for the four minutes it took to get from Dealey Plaza to Parkland and then spent a minute or two trying to get Mrs. Kennedy to release the body, finally putting his jacket over the president’s head. This is what he told the Warren Commission (i.e., the late Sen. Arlen Specter) about the rear head wound, which is all he saw:

Mr. SPECTER: What did you observe as to President Kennedy’s condition on arrival at the hospital?
Mr. HILL: The right rear portion of his head was missing. It was lying in the rear seat of the car. His brain was exposed. There was blood and bits of brain all over the entire rear portion of the car. Mrs. Kennedy was completely covered with blood. There was so much blood you could not tell if there had been any other wound or not, except for the one large gaping wound in the right rear portion of the head.
Mr. SPECTER: Did you have any opportunity to observe the front part of his body, to see whether there was any tear or rip in the clothing on the front?
Mr. HILL: I saw him lying there in the back of the car, when I was immediately above him. I cannot recall noticing anything that was ripped in the forward portion of his body.
