JFK Assassination

Full article: JFK Assassination

Mort Sahl was a critic of the Warren Commission.[3] He supported the Jim Garrison investigation in New Orleans. Mort Sahl reported that he was "terribly upset by the fact that no one debates" the JFK assassination.

Garrison was the man and he's quite correct. These people, they don't say anything, they just sit there. They don't challenge any of the reports or any of the conclusions [about the JFK assassination]. They left me out there. For me to go on the air and say that the CIA is the #1 dope dealer and adventurers within the CIA will bank the money from the [drug] imports from South East Asia and not to get a letter to challenge it or ask for documentation. Not to hear from anyone. And to know that that went out over 211 television stations to an audience of between 9 and 14 million. The silence is deafening. How can that be? How can you get no reaction? Where are we? What the hell is this, 1984?”
Mort Sahl (1970)  [4]

Legacy

George Carlin was influenced by Sahl.
