Today is the anniversary of the killing of John F. Kennedy.
I want to use this moment to say goodbye to Arlen Specter.
On May 18, 2010, Pennsylvania Senator Specter was defeated by Joe Sestak in Pennsylvania's Democratic Primary election 54% to 46% (Sestak 564,444 votes to Specter's 481,566). Due to that event, Specter's senate career is scheduled to end on January 3, 2011.
One should not be so shallow as to blame a massive coverup like the investigation of the JFK assassination on one person, but the metaphor afforded by the actions of Arlen Specter are worth noting.
Lest we forget, Arlen Specter has been involved in conspiracies for a long time, and Lee Harvey Oswald remains on his mind. Don't take my word for this. Read what he said in 2009.
For those who are young, Specter's history is a wisp of smoke.
But guess who invented the "Magic Bullet Theory"?
The Magic Bullet Theory was introduced by the Warren Commission (November 29, 1963 - September 24, 1964) to explain how three shots supposedly made by Lee Harvey Oswald resulted in the assassination of the United States President John F. Kennedy.
The theory is credited to Warren Commission staffer Arlen Specter (the outgoing U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania). Specter proposed that a single bullet, known as "Warren Commission Exhibit 399" (also labeled as "CE399"), caused all of the non-fatal wounds in both President Kennedy and Texas Governor John Connally on November 22, 1963, at Dealey Plaza, btw, the site of the first Masonic temple in Dallas, Texas.
The fatal head wound to JFK was caused by a bullet other than this alleged "Magic Bullet."
Arlen's checked history and reputation as "Snarlin' Arlen," is well-documented. But then, he probably did always have the Warren Commission on his mind.
On April 28, 2009, as the media swarmed and tried to interview Senator Arlen Specter about his jump from the Republican Party to the Democratic Party, he is reported to have said, "I don't think Lee Harvey Oswald had this big a crowd trailing him."
What a curious thing to say.
Well, it wasn't really too weird for Arlen Specter to say what he said, after all.
