Hit List: An In-Depth Investigation into the Mysterious Deaths of Witnesses to the JFK Assassination | [Richard Belzer, David Wayne]

Hit List: An In-Depth Investigation into the Mysterious Deaths of Witnesses to the JFK Assassination

For decades, government pundits have dismissed these "coincidental" deaths, even regarding them as "myths" as "urban legends." Like most people, Richard and David were initially unsure about what to make of these 'coincidences'. After all, events don't "consult the odds" prior to happening; they simply happen. Then someone comes along later and figures out what the odds of it happening were. Some of the deaths seemed purely coincidental; heart attacks, hunting accidents.

Publisher's Summary

Richard Belzer and David Wayne are back to set the record straight after Dead Wrong; this time they're going to uncover the truth about the many witness deaths tied to the JFK assassination.

For decades, government pundits have dismissed these "coincidental" deaths, even regarding them as "myths" as "urban legends." Like most people, Richard and David were initially unsure about what to make of these 'coincidences'. After all, events don't "consult the odds" prior to happening; they simply happen. Then someone comes along later and figures out what the odds of it happening were. Some of the deaths seemed purely coincidental; heart attacks, hunting accidents. Others clearly seemed noteworthy; witnesses who did seem to know something and did seem to die mysteriously.

Hit List is a fair examination of the evidence of each case, leading to (necessarily) different conclusions. The findings were absolutely staggering; as some cases were clearly linked to a "clean-up operation" after the murder of President Kennedy, while others were the result of 'other forces'. The impeccable research and writing of Richard Belzer and David Wayne show that if the government is trying to hide anything, they're the duo who will uncover it.

    "A Fraud"
    What disappointed you about Hit List?

    One of Mssr’s Belzer & Wayne’s chief sources for this book was a man named Tosh Plumlee. He has muddied the waters for JFK assassination researchers with his claims that he flew an Abort Team, starring Johnny Roselli, to Dallas on that fateful day.

    Plumlee has claimed a mountainous paper/electronic trail for his bonafides, and the only problem with those bonafides is that, beyond his own word, there’s not a single, solitary document that indicates that he’s ever been involved in any covert activity. He often points to his numerous interviews – “debriefings” – by the FBI as proof of his involvement with the covert world. But every one of those reports was initiated by him. Yes, that’s right. In every instance he contacted the FBI, explained that he has information about this or that, is interviewed, and then the FBI files a report. When that report is routinely declassified, he points to it and says, “See? I was involved.”

    But the truth is he was never involved in anything having to do with the assassination.

    William Robert “Tosh” Plumlee joined the military when he was 15 years old, in March, 1953. He was processed for discharge for being underage four months later, returning to Dallas, Texas – his home – in July 1953. That is the extent of his military service.

    He attended North Dallas High School that same year, 1953, as a sophomore, using the name of Billy Bob Morgan. His stepfather’s name was Morgan.

    He returned to North Dallas High School in 1954. There are three photos of him in the 1954 North Dallas High School yearbook and yet another one in the 1955 yearbook. On page 145 of the 1956 yearbook there is a very nice head shot of Bill Morgan that looks very much like the young photo of Tosh Plumlee with slicked back hair.

    In a subsequent FBI interview he claimed that his first pilot gig was with Riddle Airlines in Miami, FL from July 1954 to July 1955, then with Delta Airlines from July 1955 to July 1956.

    Other places on the internet, he has claimed that he joined the military in April 1954. This is impossible mainly because he was a high school student then, and also because he didn’t reach 17 years of age until November 1954. According to his FBI file he was born 11/25/37. Seventeen is the earliest you can join the military, and even then it requires parental approval.

    So, he was either a student, or a commercial/covert pilot, or he joined the military. I vote high school student.

    He subsequently has claimed (in yet another FBI interview) that he flew a P-52 Mustang fighter for our side at the Bay of Pigs. The only problem is, there were no P-52 Mustangs in the Exile Air Force. They didn’t have the range necessary to fly from Guatemala to Cuba. In all of the combat reports, CIA reports, narratives, interviews, articles, etc. about the Bay of Pigs operation, the only claim of a P-52 Mustang in the skies over Cuba then is Tosh Plumlee’s.

    Just check the record. It constantly amazes me that people are so anxious to believe this guy that they don’t even read the bonafides he points to as credentials. Just read them. You’ll see they don’t stand the light of day.


    Has Hit List turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He didn't.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None. Pure Hooey.


    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Belzer ought to do better research. Just because he's famous doesn't mean he's automatically right.
