IN THIS EPISODE~ We will study a particularly odd episode related in recently released JFK Assassination Documents. CIA pilot Alexander Rorke was tied Operationally to several Dealey Plaza Suspects~namely eventual-Watergate Burglar Frank Sturgis, and Gerald Patrick Hemming's "Gunboat Cowboys", the mercenary Organization INTERPEN. The disappearance of Rorke's plane off the coast of Mexico occurred almost *simultaneously* with the appearance of somebody claiming to be Lee Harvey Oswald in Mexico City. Less than two months after Kennedy's murder, a still-redacted member of the military contacted CIA on the down-low, claiming to have seen~and taken notes on~ writings of Rorke's that had been secreted away in a New York City bank vault prior to his disappearance, writings that would severely "damage the reputation of the Agency" if disclosed. ...and the wide-ranging list of Assassination-relate names this anonymous informant says he saw in these 'secret papers' of Alexander Rorke...is kind of astonishing.
