More generally, the mock trial State of Texas vs. Lee Harvey Oswald is planned as a unique, historic event to bring forward scientific evidence to counter the bogus claim since President John F. Kennedy’s 1963 assassination that medical evidence proves Oswald’s guilt.
Those dubious if not outright false claims have been reinvigorated this year, especially during the last week by non-scientists featured on innumerable television commentaries regarding the released mandated by Congress under the 1992 JFK Act of suppressed documents pertaining to the assassination.
The Assassination Records Review Board (ARRC) prioritized document release during the 1990s, and established a 25-year deadline for final release that expired Oct. 26.
But President Trump extended that deadline for most remaining documents for up to 180 days, as reported last week in Trump Backs Off Promise To Release All Suppressed JFK Documents Today; Permits Partial Release.
That Justice Integrity Project news report, excerpted on CAPA’s news site, contains an appendix of many news reports and commentaries since last week about the document releases. It began “In a chaotic chapter of government efforts to suppress research into the evidence regarding President Kennedy’s 1963 assassination, President Trump on Oct. 26 suddenly backed away from his promises this week to comply with a 1992 Congressional law and release all remaining documents related to the assassination.”
In previous reports, CAPA has covered that much-anticipated release of JFK assassination documents, as well as news of the mock trial, including the its agenda and today’s hotel deadline.
But registrants can obtain large savings via the discount, thus prompting this reminder. The room rate is reputed to be more than $100 night additionally without the CAPA discount, which CAPA has negotiated to extend from Nov. 15 (the eve of the mock trial) through the evening of Nov. 17 (the evening after the expected jury verdict). Hotel availability in downtown Houston is extremely scarce during that period because of other major events.
To recap our previous reports: The courtroom drama that never had a chance to occur will now be held live, featuring world-renowned J.F.K assassination experts.
