I just received the Files interview , Monday.
It is both astounding and informative. I hate to use a cliche, but truth IS
stranger than fiction. I have studied James Files for many years, and I find
his statements to be highly accurate. This is the best interview of Files that
I have ever seen. This is a "must see" for every serious student of
the JFK Assassination! And you can quote me.
From the interview I found him very credible, based on his body language and
the way he gave the answers, that's my impression. I think the assasination
went down just like Files said. But that is only based on what I saw and the
feeling I got from watching it, so even if it turns out that Files was not in
Dealey Plaza, I think the rest did happen as he told it, most probably.
Having watched it 2 times now, the things I found most remarkable
a) the velocity and "easyness" of his answers (critics may say he had
enough time to prepare them, but I think he gave his answers that way from the
b) I found no moment were he seemed to be "afraid" or
"surprised" about a question, like if he had to "construct"
or look for an answer.
Thank you for the dvd.
It was excellent.
I will write a review for you soon
I would suggest that disk one has too big of a blank space right after Files
mentions knowing Fletcher Prouty. I almost removed the disk which would have
caused me to miss a lot of material. I find Files story to be very credible and
much more convincing than the original video of 10 years ago. I have been
researching the JFK case for 33 years.
Having had the opportunity of watching the latest James Files interview on DVD,
on more than one occassion over the last weeks, and initialy having very strong
reservations about the man himself and what he had stated in the last 12 years
about him being the person who took the last shot at JFK from behind the picket
fence on top of the Grassy Knoll in Dealey Plaza on 11/22/63, I can say now,
without having the means of checking everything he stated in the latest
interview, that he comes out of it credible to me, not by the information he
gives, but the way he's talking about it in the interview.
But I can base this statement only on watching his behaviour during the
interview, meaning his body language and the way he answers the questions by
the persons interviewing him. I personaly could find no moment when I got the
impression that he has to check anything in his mind, in order to not confuse
things which he was about to say to get the story consistent.I found no moment
of hesitation or of a blinking in his eyes so to say, and I could find no
moment when I thought "now I caught him in a lie".
On the other hand I admit that I have no way of checking his statements in
depth, and that is not the point in my review, it is solely about my
impression, which may or may not turn out to be wrong in the future, but I am
now willing to give him the benefit of a doubt, until the documents and
wittnesses that do fully support his statements are presented to the public, or
material and wittnesses surface, that show that he made up the full or part of
I know fully that this is only my subjective impression, and it should be
understood as such, but I stand by what I say until proven wrong.
That's as fair as I can be after seeing the interview.
Thank you for continuing this important work for Americans and the world!
I have watched the original tape numerous times, and I am always interested in
James Files perspective on the assassination and also Files' interesting life.
As a Catholic youth growing up with the first Catholic president, I was
absolutely mesmerized by John Kennedy's rhetoric and persona. What I find
interesting is that Files, despite many despicable actions of his life, relates
events and perspectives with a truth and integrity that is so real. There is an
honor and a code to his life that renders his explanations believable and
It's so surreal that a cover-up has just grown so vast and for so long, and a
betrayal to our nation is so widespread. It verifies my mother's thoughts that
we are indeed "only pawns" in this world doing our best and being
manipulated by the elite in entrenched powerful positions. With each passing
year the puzzle of the assassination is almost complete. I am anxiously
awaiting the Files disc and hoping that it will enlighten us further because
the puzzle is almost solved.
Thank you again.
The new DVD with current interview of James Files adds some interesting facts
to the original James Files' tape that he made in the 90's. It has become known
that the FBI knew of James link to the assassination as early as 1964 - yet he
never was pursued by either the FBI or other law enforcement agencies. He names
several people in the assassination area that day - from CIA, organized crime,
and others which tells us that this crime was known by many people in
government and organized crime for some time. The irony of CIA sending Johnny
Rosselli to abort the assassination yet failing in the effort and even
assisting in the crime. Did the CIA just want to give the appearance of aborting
to distance itself? And the final reflections of James Files leaves the
chilling hint of the President's killing, the reasons for the Viet Nam War, and
sends questions and thoughts to us today about todays war! s and 911. It leaves
the decision of what we are as a nation - Are we a nation of manipulated
puppets being fed disinformation on all levels?
I just got the DVD...got it, watched it, loved it! I feel that this
DVD is essential for everyone whether expert or novice on the assassination.
It has great quality picture too. I think the reason for the James
Files story being rejected by others in the research community is purely
psychological. They just can't accept the idea of the grassy knoll shooter
being found. I speak from first-hand experience: when I first went to
JFKmurdersolved.com, I was quite offended with the idea of the second shooter
being discovered, and that such a gigantic subject has been
"solved". It was too convenient, too good to be true. But those
that think that have never seen this interview! The weight of the magic bullet
isn't going to answer the question "Who shot JFK?" ...but James
Files just might.
America owes you! What a wonderful thing you did preparing this excellent DVD. The disc arrived yesterday evening, I had to teach until 10:00PM; so, I could watch only the first half of the story.
Thank you very much for making this available; we NEED to KNOW all of this, true or not true. It would be wonderful to be able to speak with Mr. Files, because I have some questions for him. Not the least of which is the fact that an Army private was standing right next to "badge man" as he fired THE SHOT as recorded in the Mary Moorman photo. Also, if the HIT was called off, why did it go down?
Anyway, THANK YOU VERY MUCH for what you have done. I'll view the remainder of the DVD, and, with your permission, show it to one of my classes, who are geniuses, and ask them what they think, and let you know.
You are amazing!
